Final Fantasy XIV: HeavenswardEdit

Bismarck was summoned by the Vunda tribe of Vanu Vanu. Bismarck 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 Adventurer 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 Adventurer defeated Bismarck yet again.

Spoilers end here.
