Once tamed, the Flanitor becomes a Medic. Its development is relatively quick, and it has a high Magic stat. The Flanitor learns the useful Improved Cure II ability, as well as Esunada. It is most effective against foes that frequently cast debuffs. Its one negative quality is its low HP.

Flanitor is a portmanteau of "flan" and "janitor." Flan is a recurring enemy type in the Final Fantasy series.

Flan is an open pastry or sponge cake containing a sweet or savory filling. A typical flan of this sort is round, with shortcrust pastry, usually coated with sweet syrup. It is similar to a custard tart or a South African melktert.


  • "Flanitor" is the answer to the following question from Captain Cryptic's Confounding Quiz: "What monster can easily be spotted in the dark?"
  • According to Motomu Toriyama, the director of Final Fantasy XIII-2, the Flanitor is the most popular Paradigm Pack monster among the game's developers. It is also the most common monster to appear in Paradigm Packs, overall.[1]
