Appearances[edit | edit source]
Bahamut appears in Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon.
A mystical dragon with great powers and fortitude. He only provides aid to those who have his approval. His presence is shrouded in mystery.
Bahamut introduces himself as the King of Dragons and the Keeper of Time. He is met while investigating Cid's tower and relays cryptic information regarding the strange behavior of the imps inhabiting the tower, the presence of a higher power and the existence of a mysterious girl to Chocobo and Cid. He knows what has happened in the past, present, and future, and he was the one who revealed the origin of the Glass Goth. In-game, he is the strongest "feather" summon, which annihilates enemies with his devastating Breath attack.
In Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy, Bahamut makes a cameo appearance first as the boss of the Genius Inventor's Memories who far outclasses all the monsters in the dungeon. He is later found at the Empty House in the Residential District with Shiroma and Cid. Clearing his dungeon unlocks his buddy for use.
Bahamut is the final boss. He lives in Fantasia, the realm of the Espers, legendary "Beasts of Illusion". Bahamut the King of Espers and the Mysidian magician Ming-Wu saw that the Magicite causes much warfare in the world and to avoid conflict, the Magicite was split into eight pieces and scattered around the world. Chocobo must prove his world and Fantasia can coexist by beating Bahamut.
Bahamut hovers above the track with speed equal to Goblin's and better acceleration than Black Magician's. His ability is Megaflare, a slow-charging unblockable attack that hits all racers and stalls them. His theme is a combination of the remixed versions of the opening of the fourth section of "Dancing Mad" from Final Fantasy VI, and "Sealed Book" from Final Fantasy V.
Bahamut is a non-element card, and he has six cards under his name.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
Bahamut (Arabic بهموت Bahamūt) originated as an enormous whale in ancient pre-Islamic Arabian mythology. Upon Bahamut's back stands a bull with four thousand eyes, ears, noses, mouths, tongues and feet called Kujuta (also spelled "Kuyutha"). Between each of these is a distance of a 500-year journey. On the back of Kujuta is a mountain of ruby. Atop this mountain is an angel who carries six hells, earth, and seven heavens on its shoulders.
Another version of the Arabic story is that Bahamut is indeed a dragon and he stands on a whale called Liwash.
In modern times, the game Dungeons & Dragons is responsible for re-imagining Bahamut as the king of dragons, a benevolent Platinum Dragon; the opposite of the malevolent Tiamat, the five-headed Chromatic Queen of Dragons.
