Appearances[]

Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-[]

Bahamut Fury is a much larger golden version of Bahamut that uses a new attack called Exaflare, comprised of a blast from the planet's moon that's triggered by Bahamut Fury's own energy blast. Both Bahamut and Bahamut Fury are added to the DMW by obtaining the appropriate Materia.

In battle, along with the standard magic attacks and claw swipes, Bahamut Fury jettisons the six spikes on its wings at enemies in a powerful attack known as Hexafang. The same jettison is used in the animation for Exaflare.

The power of Exaflare is as follows:

Attack Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Level 4 Level 5
Exaflare 70 74 78 82 96

Etymology[]

The (Retsu?) in Bahamut Fury's Japanese name derives from a Japanese fighter plane, the A7M Reppū (烈風).

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.
