Final Fantasy II Artwork.

Freely contorting its amorphous form, the flan will consume the unwary, leaving not even bones behind. They can suspend their sticky bodies from walls and ceilings, waiting patiently for prey to come to them.

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy CollectaCard description.

Flan (プリン, Purin?, lit. Pudding) is an enemy species from the Final Fantasy series, first appearing by the name "Flan" in Final Fantasy II. Flan are true to their name, as they are gelatinous, cylindrical creatures, generally possessing large eyes and a mouth that takes up the majority of the front of their body. In many games, they have stubby arms that spurt from the sides of their body.

In most games, their names are synonymous with "Jellies", "Puddings", "Oozes", or similar, while in other games, Flan is its own type of creature.

In many games, Flan are weaker creatures, encountered fairly early on. In some games, there are some Flan with elemental affinities, such as an Ice Flan or Dark Flan. Flan are usually resistant against physical damage but weak to magic. Fittingly, they are also likely to be formidable casters.

The four types of ooze monsters were inspired by classic Dungeons & Dragons monsters: Green Slime, Gray Ooze, Ochre Jelly and Black Flan (originally "Black Puddin). The Red Flan, a Final Fantasy original monster, has been added to this list in the Dawn of Souls and 20th Anniversary remakes, and can be found in the bonus dungeons.

Greenslime-ff2-psp.png

Flan 1 (FFXI).png

Though there are formless slime enemies found throughout Vana'diel, Flan (usually called "puddings") are a specific type of Amorph found in the Near East, particularly around Halvung. These flan regularly cast black magic spells, unlike slimes and clots.

Due to the fact they take increased damage from spells, they are very popular EXP targets for black mages, red mages, and scholars.


Final Fantasy XII[edit | edit source]

XII flan render.png

Of the class of flan-type enemies, some have the ability to duplicate or divide to overwhelm an opponent with numbers. This type of flan bears an even greater resemblance to the dessert, as it is covered in syrup, or as the game puts it, caramel. Flan resist damage from guns and measures.

There are twelve variants:

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings[edit | edit source]

Greenflan.png

The Flan is an enemy type with four variants:

Final Fantasy XIII[edit | edit source]

Flan.

There exists an entire class of Flan-type enemies. Flan designed for military use in Cocoon have metallic components attached to them, while the wild flan are fully organic. Many of the wild Flan have the ability to merge with others of their kind in order to form larger Flan.


Final Fantasy XIII-2[edit | edit source]

Miniflan.

A child form of flan called Miniflan is introduced. Furthermore, the wild flans' ability to merge with others of their kind is taken to an extreme in the form of Royal Ripeness. Flandragora has been renamed to Flanbanero in reference to the Habanero pepper.

The new generation of Miniflans.

Flan play a role in the storyline at Sunleth Waterscape where a giant flan has appeared due to a paradox and is eroding the crystal pillar. Noel temporarily surrenders his trade as monster hunter for a bit of monster rescuing in 400 AF, rounding up lost miniflans with Serah, only to find that mischievous lesser Flan again threaten the Pillar.

It is mentioned in the Brain Blast quiz in Academia that during the annual Gran Pulse festival, La Prettina, an event that celebrates the coming of spring, people throw flan at one another. Furthermore, the Brain Blast quiz also mentions that Flan are terribly spicy in flavor. Flan are a regular food source of hunters, whose livelihood is threatened by the appearance of the Faeryl that sucks away the flan from the Archylte Steppe into the Sunleth Waterscape. Defeating the Faeryl removes Miniflan and Flanbanero from the Waterscape and adds them (returning them, as the story would have it) to the Steppe.

In a paradox ending in the Sunleth Waterscape, a giant flan takes over Cocoon and Serah, Noel and Mog sneak into the Waterscape with Noel disguised as a Microchu and Serah as a Miniflan in an attempt to defeat it by serving it a poisoned flan.

All Flan use one of two Feral Links, both doing physical damage: Twin Fists and Hundred Fists. Of the cyborg versions of the Flan, the Militarized Unit Flanborg, also does Twin Fists, but Flanitor has a unique Feral Link, Hyper Rescue; this ability to heal the entire party instantly is one of the reasons for its popularity.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII[edit | edit source]

Flan resist physical attacks and are impervious to magic that is the same color as them. Blue flans are immune to ice, red flans are immune to fire, and yellow flans are immune to lightning. If a flan is defeated with magic, it will instantly die, but if it is defeated with physical attacks, it will split into two weaker flans.
