Appearances[edit | edit source]
Fenrir is an esper obtained in Mobliz after defeating Humbaba for the first time there. Its summon sequence is called Howling Moon (Moon Song in the earlier releases) and grants Image on the party. It costs 70 MP to cast. It teaches Teleport (x10), Banish (x5) and Stop (x3). At level up, it gives a boost of +30% to MP.
In the PlayStation version, selecting Fenrir in battle will erroneously read "Fenris".
Fenrir is an eidolon summoned by Eiko Carol. It is learned through the Sapphire for 30 AP which Eiko comes equipped with when she joins. Its normal attack calls forth Titan to use the attack Terrestrial Rage, which deals Earth-Elemental damage to all opponents.
If Eiko is using the Maiden Prayer, Fenrir will use the Wind-elemental ability called Millennial Decay instead. Fenrir's spell power is augmented by the number of Sapphires in the party's inventory, and summoning him costs 30 MP. Summoning Fenrir earns the Wolf Insanity achievement in the mobile and Steam versions.
If Fenrir's Terrestrial Rage attack is summoned on Bombs, sometimes when they use Grow, their graphic will disappear and they become invisible.

Fenrir is one of the five terrestrial Avatars. Associated with both the moon and prophecy, he lives in Full Moon Fountain and was said to have given the gift of magic to the Tarutaru long ago. During the Crystal War, an expert magician known as Karaha-Baruha drained Fenrir's energy from Full Moon Fountain, causing first the gradual loss of life on the Mindartia continent.
When he summoned all of Fenrir's power in battle to save Windurst during a siege from the beastmen, the magical overload caused him to vanish forever, along with Fenrir. Since then, summoning magic has been forbidden by the Star Sybil. For Fenrir to take on a physical form once more, the power of the Celestial Avatars are required. Before Fenrir's power was stolen, it was said that he had enough strength to face even Bahamut himself.
Along with Diabolos, Alexander, and Odin, Fenrir is one of the more challenging summonable avatars to acquire. The quest to acquire Fenrir, "The Moonlit Path", requires that a summoner reacquires the whispers from the battles against Ifrit, Shiva, Ramuh, Garuda, Leviathan, and Titan. A whisper is lost once the summoner claims a reward for the Prime Avatar fights, thus requiring a rematch with all six of the required avatars in order to have access to The Moonlit Path.
Fenrir is somewhat unique in that while he has higher Perpetuation Cost than Carbuncle, his cost is lower than the rest of the avatars, and thus it's possible for some of the best-geared Summoners to reduce the perpetuation cost to the minimum of -1, which is then negated to 0 by Auto Refresh.
Fenrir is also the name of a server.

Fenrir is the 3-star Wind Magicite boss. In battle, he combines elements of the Final Fantasy VI incarnation and the Final Fantasy IX incarnation. From VI comes the sprite and the Howling Moon ability, which grants Fenrir Haste and Blink status. From IX comes the Wind association, as well as the attack Withering Winds (an alternate translation of Millenial Decay).
When summoned as an Esper, Fenrir will use Ultra Howling Moon to grant the party Blink and increase their resistance to Earth. It will then periodically appear to use Bite, Wind Slash, or Withering Winds.
A demon-wolf, lone hunter and scorner of gods.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
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.In Norse mythology,
