Bismarck is the primal of the Vanu Vanu beast-tribe in Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward.


Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward[]

The Vunda tribe of Vanu Vanu summoned Bismarck. He later appeared while under attacked by Garleans, devouring a small island that contained the key to Azys Lla. Reasoning that it was only a matter of time before the Garleans found a way to obtain the key, Cid nan Garlond anchored a small island to the Enterprise and dragged it through the Sea of Clouds to lure Bismarck. When the primal appeared, the Warrior of Light used the harpoon launchers mounted on the island to reel in the sky whale and slay it to obtain the key.

The Vanu Vanu would summon Bismarck once more, an act that Unukalhai was afraid would hasten the awakening of the Warring Triad. Using the Enterprise to lure out Bismarck once more, the Warrior of Light defeated Bismarck yet again.

Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker[]

When the party used the spaceship Ragnarok to reach Ultima Thule, the beast tribes summoned benevolent iterations of their primals using the Mothercrystal, with Bismarck being one of the ten summoned. He gave his power to the Ragnarok, allowing it to achieve the propulsion needed for the Scions of the Seventh Dawn and the Warrior of Light amongt them to reach their destination.


Ruler of the clouds, worshipped by the Vanu Vanu.
Folklore tells of a legendary white whale said to swim in the Sea of Clouds as if they were the waters of the Rhotano.
