Exdeath's bodyguard in another world where tales of the Crystals are told. Although Gilgamesh has enough power to eliminate the entire army of the Bal Kingdom, there is still something off about him. Having been tasked by Exdeath to keep a close watch on the prisoner Bartz and his companions, he eventually found himself cornered by Galuf who was attempting to rescue them. Gilgamesh then fled, but battled the party again once they reached the Big Bridge.

Gilgamesh (5★) description

Gilgamesh appears as a summonable vision and optional playable character, serving as a character representative from Final Fantasy V. He also appears as a recurring enemy.

Gilgamesh's first enemy appearance occurred during the event The Big Bridge, based on his iconic battle from Final Fantasy V. His second (and permanent) enemy appearance is at the Chamber of the Fallen, as part of the "Gilgamesh's Offensive" trial (and its Chamber of the Indignant version); his sprite is based on his incarnation from Final Fantasy XIII-2. His third enemy appearance is as Gilgamesh Ashur from Final Fantasy Type-0 and appears during the event The Clash on Big Bridge.


Gilgamesh is a 5-7★ Rare Summon that has been available for summoning since the event The Big Bridge (which originally ran in November 2016). His job is listed as Guard Captain, and his role is Physical Damage. He has no innate element or status ailment resistances. His Trust Master reward is the extremely-valuable Genji Glove accessory, due to it granting the Dual Wield passive ability (in addition to ATK/MAG +10%). His Super Trust Master reward is the Genji Helm (FFV).

His awakening materials are the following: Calamity Gem x20, Calamity Writ x10, Prismatic Horn x10, Rainbow Bloom x5, Divine Crystal x5


Gilgamesh's stats at his highest levels are as follows (with no passive abilities taken into account), along with the maximum amount of stat points that can be increased through pot-enhancements:

Rarity Level HP MP ATK DEF MAG SPR Drop Check*(Maximum burst stone drops per hit)
5★ 80 2792 (+360) 115 (+40) 114 (+16) 104 (+16) 87 (+16) 89 (+16) 10 FFBE Limit Burst crystal.png
6★ 100 3630 (+510) 150 (+40) 149 (+26) 136 (+26) 114 (+26) 116 (+26) 12 FFBE Limit Burst crystal.png

Gilgamesh has four ability slots. He also has affinity to all three types of magic: White, Black and Green Magic (Lvl 3-4).

While can equip all types of weapons, but he will benefit particularly from equipping swords, due to his passive "Weapon Collector" ability.
