Fenrir is an esper in Final Fantasy VI who can be acquired as a magicite.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Fenrir is a dark gray, howling wolf, with red eyes.

Story[edit | edit source]

Fenrir's magicite was in the possession of Humbaba when he attacked Mobliz in the World of Ruin. Celes and Sabin defended the village from Humbaba and forced him into retreat, and he dropped Fenrir as he fled. One of the children of Mobliz found the magicite and gave it to the two as thanks for protecting them.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Fenrir costs 70 MP to summon, and it casts Howling Moon (Moon Song in the Super NES and Playstation releases), which grants Image status to the party. At level up, it gives a +30% boost to MP.

Fenrir has circumstantial use over Golem, who also shields the party members from attacks but only up to a set amount - generally Golem has more reliable but short-term protection, while Fenrir is more chance-based on Image not wearing off but can protect the party longer if it persists. Fenrir can be particularly useful in Dragons' Den, where several members of the eight legendary dragons have powerful physical attacks or unique special attacks.

Spells[edit | edit source]

Fenrir's spells are all helpful utility spells useful to teach, though Stop can be ignored as Golem also teaches it and at a higher learn rate.


Other appearances[edit | edit source]

Final Fantasy Record Keeper[edit | edit source]

FFRK Mad Fenrir FFVI.png

Fenrir appears as the rank 3 Wind-elemental magicite boss. It takes attributes with its Final Fantasy IX incarnation, able to use Withering Winds as an offensive attack while the VI incarnation's Howling Moon is a defensive buffing attack. Fenrir's magicite uses Howling Moon to grant the party Blink, and its normal attacks are Bite, Wind Slash, and Withering Winds.

In addition, Eiko's Soul Break for Withering Winds uses the image of Final Fantasy VI Fenrir rather than his Final Fantasy IX incarnation.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

In Norse mythology, Fenrir is a monstrous wolf. Fenrir is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda and Heimskringla, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. In both the Poetic Edda and Prose Edda, Fenrir is the father of the wolves Sköll and Hati Hróðvitnisson, and is a son of Loki. Upon the coming of Ragnarök, along with his sons devouring the moon and the sun, Fenrir is said to destroy the planet, his lower jaw reaching the earth, his upper jaw reaching the skies. It is foretold to kill the god Odin during Ragnarök, but will in turn be killed by Odin's son Víðarr.
