Leviathan artwork for Final Fantasy VIII by Tetsuya Nomura.

A massive sea serpent that effortlessly controls water and rules all who dwell in the oceans. The raging swell of his "Tsunami" is enough to consume even the fiercest of foes.

Dissidia Final Fantasy Summon Compendium

Leviathan (リヴァイアサン, Rivaiasan? or リバイアサン, Ribaiasan?), also known as Levia, Leviatan and Leviathn, is a summon that appears in the Final Fantasy series.

A giant sea serpent, he first appeared as a monster that swallowed the party in Final Fantasy II, and went on to become one of the most prominent summons in the series alongside Bahamut, being known by titles such as "the Sea King", or "Lord of All Waters". In the later titles of the series, Leviathan's prominence diminished as Bahamut gained more status and popularity. Leviathan's trademark attack is Tidal Wave, also known as Tsunami, which calls on a massive wave of water to damage all enemies.



Final Fantasy II

Leviathan is not present as a summon, but rather a large sea monster that consumes any ship carrying a Crystal Rod on approach to the Tower of Mysidia. His intestines are a small dungeon, containing a group of people he swallowed, including Ricard Highwind.

Final Fantasy III

Leviathan (DS).

Leviathan can be fought in a dungeon under Lake Dohr by the Warriors of Light after obtaining the Invincible. He is visible on the world map as a shadow swimming in the lake.

He can be summoned by Evokers and Summoners with the Level 7 Summon Magic spell Leviath. His summon magic can also be bought at a shop in Eureka for a large expense of 60000 gil.

  • White summoning: Demon Eye - Instant Death if successful.
  • Black summoning: Cyclone - deals wind-elemental damage to all enemies.
  • High summoning: Tidal Wave - deals water-elemental damage to all enemies.

Final Fantasy IV

The Eidolon King... Born of the Northern Sea itself, he is the Lord of All Waters, and unchallenged champion of the Eidolons.

Eidolon Library


Leviathan plays a major role, where he is titled "The Lord of All Waters". He is the king of the Eidolons that live on a parallel plane of existence in the Underworld, the Feymarch, and rules the summoned monsters with Queen Asura. He knows that Rydia of Mist was one of the last surviving Summoners.

When Rydia is traveling with Cecil, Edward, and Yang to Baron on a ship, Leviathan attacks the ship and carries Rydia off into the Feymarch to protect her and train her in her abilities. Later in the game, the player can enter the Feymarch and defeat Leviathan to earn him as a summon if they have also defeated Asura.

Leviathan has a casting time of 3 and costs 50 MP to summon in all releases, except in the 3D release where he costs 75 MP. When summoned Leviathan uses Tsunami to attack all enemies for heavy non-elemental (water-elemental in the 3D version) damage. In the Easy Type version, the casting time was reduced to 2.

Lunar Leviathan is a boss in Palom and Porom's Lunar Trials sidequest at the Lunar Ruins in the Advance version. Defeating him earns a Grimoire that can call Lunar Leviathan to attack all enemies for a guaranteed 9,999 damage.

Final Fantasy IV -Interlude-

Leviathan returns as a summon spell for Rydia. It deals heavy non-elemental damage to all enemies at the cost of 50 MP. He is only available during the final battle.

Leviathan can be found in the Chamber of the Eidolon King in the Feymarch. He tells Rydia that something is coming, and he fears that trouble stirs in the human world again.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

TAY PSP Leviathan Field.png

Leviathan is fought twice, the first time he is fought he is summoned by the Mysterious Girl to battle Golbez and Fusoya in the Crystal Palace. He cannot be harmed and only the Girl can be defeated, and afterward Leviathan fades away.

In the final chapter Leviathan can be found as an optional boss in the Depths, and if defeated with Rydia in the party, will come to his senses and be available to summon. Otherwise he must be killed. Leviathan costs 50 MP to summon and uses Tidal Wave to attack all opponents.

Final Fantasy V


Leviathan in battle.

Leviathan is a Level 5 Summon that guards Istory Falls. He protects the Tablet that lies there, but the player party does not need to fight him. Instead, the party can return later to fight him.

Leviathan's summon attack, Tidal Wave, is Water-elemental and costs 39 MP to use.

Final Fantasy VI

Leviathan (iOS).

Leviathan appears in the Advance and smartphone versions in the World of Ruin. He is acquired along the route from South Figaro to Nikeah by ferry, after a boss fight. His attack, Tidal Wave, deals heavy water elemental damage to all enemies. He costs 70 MP to summon and his power is 130. He teaches Flood at a rate of x2, and gives +2 Stamina for every level up.

Final Fantasy VII

Model of Leviathan.
See the Summon sequence here.

The Leviathan Summon Materia is obtained in Wutai Village after Yuffie defeats the fifth and last pagoda god, Godo. It casts Tidal Wave and costs 78 MP. Leviathan was one of the summons to also appear in the original 1996 Aeris demo release where, for a cost of only 40 MP, Aeris could summon Leviathan into battle to use his Tsunami attack, the original name for Tidal Wave. Leviathan's spell power is equal to 4.6875x the base magic damage.

AP for level 18000 38000 87000 100000

There is also an item, called Leviathan Scales, which removes the fire from the cave in the Da-chao Statue, allowing the player to enter and receive its treasures.

Obtaining Leviathan in the PlayStation 4 version earns the Making Waves trophy.

The Fountain of Leviathan that can be seen in Wutai.

While not appearing physically, Leviathan is referred to as Wutai's guardian god, and a fountain of it can be seen while in Wutai.

Final Fantasy VIII

Sketch by Tetsuya Nomura.

The Guardian Force Leviathan can be drawn from NORG. If missed, it can later be drawn from Trauma in the final dungeon.

Leviathan's Tsunami attack is a Water-elemental attack that damages all enemies and can also wash away smaller enemies, defeating them instantly. Its compatibility item is Fish Fin and its opposing GF is Quezacotl whose summoning deducts from Leviathan's compatibility the most.

It learns Magic and Spirit junctions and elemental attack and defense. It is the only Guardian Force to learn the Recover command naturally, which deals a full heal up to 9999HP to a target and can thus also be used to damage undead opponents. It learns a support ability that has the junctioner automatically use a recovery potion when they are hit by an enemy. Its unique abilities make support magic and GF recovery medicine from items, and an ability that boosts the user's Spirit upon level up.

Its Triple Triad card modifies into Doc's Codes and is held by CC Group Joker in Balamb Garden Training Center (he appears randomly in the easternmost screen after Garden has become mobile).

Final Fantasy IX

See the Summon sequence here.

The eidolon Leviathan is obtained at the Iifa Tree as part of the story. It is taught through the Aquamarine for 40 AP. Dagger can summon Leviathan's Tsunami, which deals Water damage to all enemies. Tsunami's spell power is augmented by the total number of Aquamarines in the party's inventory. If Leviathan is added to Dagger's roster of eidolons at the beginning of the game via a cheating device, before Dagger has her eidolons extracted Leviathan costs 168 MP to summon; its normal cost when acquired normally is 42 MP. Summoning Leviathan earns the Surf's Up achievement in the mobile and Steam versions.

It is explained by Eiko that the summoner tribe failed to summon Leviathan and so sealed him away near the Iifa Tree using Carbuncle as the seal. Dagger rushes to find Leviathan and unseal him to save her mother from Kuja's attack, but realizes she can't use Leviathan to save Brahne since she is currently with her fleet of ships.

Leviathan is mentioned in an old memo written by Hironobu Sakaguchi for the development of Final Fantasy IX. Upon their first meeting Princess Garnet would have rushed past Zidane and "a thief" (Blank in the final game) and while the thief would have focused on Garnet's chest being slightly revealed in her formal dress, Zidane would take notice of the pendant she was wearing: "No, no, she was wearing the pendant of the summons permitted by only royalty. Deep blue stone... 'The Legend of Leviathan', was it Princess Garnet?"[1] This could refer to Garnet's royal pendant being the summoning jewel for Leviathan in the early story drafts. In the final game, Garnet is unaware the pendant is a fragment of Alexander's summoning jewel.

Tetra Master

Template:FFIX Tetra Master

Final Fantasy XI

Leviathan (FFXI).png

Leviathan appears as one of the six celestial avatars and represents the water element. The job class Summoner can unlock the "spell" Leviathan upon completion of the quest "Trial By Water". Alternatively, a brave low-level Summoner may go on the quest "Trial Size Trial By Water" and defeat Leviathan in a battle alone rather than in a group. He retains his trademark move, Tidal Wave as his Astral Flow ability.

He was a great sea serpent who used to terrorize the Gugru Sea, in protest of the development of sea commerce. All attempts to defeat him failed, until a war hero named Veydal, who lived in an island kingdom in the middle of the Gugru Sea, volunteered to resolve the situation. He wanted to apologize to Leviathan and try to discuss with him. However, his first mate was too eager to fight and attacked the sea serpent before the order was given, which caused Leviathan to rampage.

Forced to defend his men, Veydal offered his life to Leviathan in return for theirs. The rest of his crew fled, including the first mate. Veydal was last seen falling into the sea in fierce combat with the serpent. Upon returning home, Veydal's first mate claimed the victory as his own. However, the next day, Leviathan's body washed ashore, with Veydal's sword planted in his skull. The serpent wished to honor the memory of the brave warrior and show the truth to his kinsmen, in a dying effort.

Altana, moved by Leviathan's gesture and Veydal's courage, called them both to the heavens. She transformed Leviathan into the Celestial Avatar of Water. Veydal is the name of the brightest, dark-blue colored star of the Leviathan constellation.

Leviathan is also the name of a Server.

Final Fantasy XII

Although Leviathan itself does not make an appearance, the Dreadnought Leviathan is the name of an airship, and serves a major role in the storyline.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings

Leviathan RW.png

Leviathan is the rank 3 Physical Water summon. He is fought in Mission 58: Serpent's Rage, which takes place at Oghu, the Veiled Isle. His normal attack is Barracuda Dive, in which he swings his tail to attack all enemies in a small radius around him. Leviathan's special attack, Tidal Wave, deals massive water damage to all enemies in front of him.

In addition, the airship Dreadnought Leviathan from the time of Final Fantasy XII has been rebuilt, bearing its predecessor's name, now under the ownership of Queen Ashe. The ship Leviathan serves as the Galbana's gateway between Lemurés and Ivalice.

Final Fantasy XIII

Concept art of Leviathan.

Although not an Eidolon, the Leviathan Plaza is the name of an area on Cocoon, in the city of Eden, past the Siren Park. Concept artwork for Leviathan exists, indicating Leviathan was considered as one of the Eidolons to appear. The concept art shows people walking inside Leviathan's body, suggesting he may have been considered as another form of amusement in Nautilus, like Ifrit or Carbuncle.

Final Fantasy XIII-2

Leviathan is mentioned in Captain Cryptic's Confounding Quiz as a Cocoon fal'Cie responsible for purifying the water.

Final Fantasy XIV

Official render of Leviathan.

Leviathan appears as the Primal of the Sahagin beastmen tribe.

Leviathan was originally scheduled to appear as a boss in the original version of the game, but following the tsunami disaster of 2011, his and Titan's plotlines were seen as highly inappropriate for the time and were shelved.

In A Realm Reborn, Leviathan finally appears as the final boss of the Through the Maelstrom scenario introduced in the game's 2.2 patch.[2] Leviathan first appears during the "The Gift of Eternity" main scenario quest, during the quest he is summoned by a Sahagin Priest. When summoned, Leviathan absorbs the spirit of the priest and dives into the ocean. After obtaining a specially-outfitted boat, the Whorleater, to fight the Primal on equal footing, the Adventurer and their allies fight Leviathan out at sea and defeat him. His signature attack during the battle is Tidal Wave, which can be defended against by activating a force field powered by an Elemental Converter.

In addition to the scenario version of the boss, players may face a stronger version of Leviathan in "The Whorleater (Extreme)" instance, which offers the chance to obtain Leviathan-themed weapons and several drops for crafting furniture and stylized chocobo barding.

Final Fantasy XV

Leviathan from FFXV.png

Leviathan is one of the Six Astrals, and is commonly known as the Hydraean or the Tidemother. She sleeps in the waters of Altissia, and is awakened by Lunafreya, who wishes for Leviathan to lend Noctis her power. She is the largest Astral in Eos, and is a colossal sea serpent.

She is fought as a boss in Chapter 9. Noctis can summon her after forging a covenant with her.

Enemy sprite.

Leviathan, revered as the water god by the inhabitants from the continent of Olderion, is an esper and the lord of Lake Dorr, a sacred place from wherein the pure waters flow into Aquapolis Olderion and keep it safe from monsters in the manner of a protective barrier. Revered as gentle and beneficent, Leviathan is a peaceful creature, known for never attacking travelers, unlike the rest of the espers.

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

While normally Leviathan does not wander far from the lake, during Rain, Lasswell and Fina's seatrip from Kolobos Isle to Dirnado, Leviathan attacks their ship, causing them to end up washed up to the shores of Maranda Coast.

After the party makes their way to Olderion and into the Aquapolis, Luka the water priestess in charge of purifying the waters that protect the citadel, reveals that her ship was attacked by Leviathan and decides to make a trip to see what has happened to the otherwise-peaceful esper.

When they reach the lake, they are ambushed by one of the Sworn Six of Paladia, Veritas of the Waters, who reveals he wounded Leviathan by making use of the Sacred Ring of Paladia. Held under her thrall, Leviathan attacks and almost kills the party, until Luka's prayers reach him, causing him to attack Veritas instead. As Waterlord is forced to flee, Luka descends along with Leviathan to the bottom of the lake in order to heal the esper's wounds and to purify the waters that protect the Aquapolis, even though it may take her years to do so.

During Season Two, on Paladia, the party visits the ruins of an altar once dedicated to Leviathan. Nichol, connected to Leviathan due to his bloodline, is called by the esper in order to be granted his power, per Luka's wishes. As with all espers, Leviathan must be defeated to obtain his power; despite his enormous power, the party manages to defeat him and claim his power.

Spoilers end here.

World of Final Fantasy

Who's Who
CV: Claudia Black / Masako Ikeda
Notes: One of the Pleiad / Queen of the deep / Maligned as a sea-demon / "Currently" on holiday in the Low Seas
A Series Regular
While Leviathan doesn't grace quite as many FF titles as some of her peers, she's notable for her range. She's given crucial roles in some stories, and is relegated to the deep in others, but you'll never forget her once you see her.
Capricious Queen
After spending a century under lock and...well, key, Leviathan was ready to cut loose. A well-deserved cruise was in order—a chance to see how her ocean kingdom had changed. No wonder she was so annoyed by Addy's interruption. As ancient as he is, she called him "little adamantoise," which seems to suggest she's been alive for unfathomable generations.
Leviathan has always done what suits her in the moment, and she can quickly swing from friendly ally to terrifying foe. However, she has no less than a brilliant mind. Presented with Faris and Syldra's misguided grudge, she could have crushed them where they stood, or else tried to clear things up. But instead, she made the wiser decision to humor the grudge and pretend to lose. Whimsical? Yes, but also generous at times.
Then again, if Faris (and Reynn and Lann) weren't strong enough, Leviathan probably would have let that same whimsy of hers smash them to pieces. Take nothing for granted with the Queen of the Deep.
Not Fond of Bismarck
Few Mirages get on Leviathan's nerves quite like Bismarck. He's just a puny little weakling and yet he dares to oppose her... Unforgivable!
It's no wonder, then, that Leviathan chose to side with Faris's great-grandfather when Bismarck attacked him. But then it's also no wonder that she left Tycoon to fend for himself in perilous waters once the battle was over. After all, she does as she pleases and owed Tycoon nothing.

the Leviathan hazard.

Leviathan's incarnation from Final Fantasy VII appears as a hazard for the Midgar stage. If Leviathan's Summon Materia is used, he will appear in the background of the stage. He will use Tsunami to create a fast surge of water that can knock players off the stage.


Three collectible figurines of Leviathan have been released. The first was released in 1999 as part of the Transcendent Artists Collection: Final Fantasy VIII and it is a cold cast statue featuring Leviathan along with Quistis Trepe and Selphie Tilmitt. The Final Fantasy VII version of Leviathan has appeared as part of the Final Fantasy Creatures Vol 1 series of figures, and the Final Fantasy IX Leviathan has been released under the Final Fantasy Master Creatures collection's first series as well.


Leviathan (Biblical Hebrew לִוְיָתָן or לווייתן Liwyāthān) is a violent sea creature referred to in the Hebrew Bible as well as the Talmud and some other ancient Jewish texts. During the golden age of seafaring, the term Leviathan became synonymous with any large sea creature, sometimes describing whales. Bible scholars interpreted Leviathan to be either a demonic sea creature and an enemy of God.

The Talmud and other ancient Jewish sources refer to Leviathan more specifically as a sea serpent, sometimes with multiple heads capable of breathing fire, that was made on the fifth day of Creation. It is said that during the end of days, God will make tents, or sukkah, out of the skin of Leviathan for the righteous to live in. Some have speculated that Leviathan was based on a real animal, the most popular theory being the Kronosaurus and the Nile crocodile.

Leviathan is also one of the seven princes of Hell associated with the deadly sin Envy and Hell's gatekeeper in Christian demonology.

In the Final Fantasy series Leviathan is sometimes referred to as the King of the Seas. Its incarnation in the series appears to derive from the legends of the Shinto god Ryūjin or Owatatsumi, said to be the dragon god that reigns over the seas. It also resembles the Chinese dragon, mystical beings seen as the rulers of moving bodies of water, and the Dragon God as the dispenser of rain.
