In the original free-to-play versions of the game, Lich's role was overall the same as in the premium releases. However, Lich also appeared as an event boss multiple times throughout the game's life cycle.

EtymologyEdit

In fantasy fiction, a lich is a type of undead creature. Often such a creature is the result of a transformation, as a powerful magician or king striving for eternal life uses spells or rituals to bind his intellect to his animated corpse and thereby achieve a form of immortality.

TriviaEdit

  • Lich's appearance in all versions Final Fantasy Dimensions II contains nods to his past appearances in the Final Fantasy series.
    • His appearance is based on his sprites from the original Final Fantasy.
    • Like the original Final Fantasy, Lich is the first of the Four Chaoses to be defeated. In addition, he is fought during the finale of Final Fantasy Dimensions II.
    • When fought as a side quest boss during the "Lich of Earth" quest, Lich drops the Vampyr signet for Jornee. This serves as a reference to the Vampire being a servant to Lich in the original Final Fantasy.
    • Lich's signets teach Morrow Kill and Earth Flare abilities. Kill was a powerful Black Magic spell used by Lich in Final Fantasy; while Earth Flare also serves as a reference to Lich having access to the spell during his final encounter in the Chaos Shrine.
    • In Final Fantasy Legends: Toki no Suishō, Lich also appeared as an additional enemy during the encounters with Kuja. This serves as a reference to Kuja summoning Lich to serve him during the final dungeon of Final Fantasy IX.
  • In addition, Lich contains certain similarities to Scarmiglione from Final Fantasy IV.
    • The first reference is Lich first encountering the party in the Mysidia region during the Crystal of Time arc, which references Scarmiglione encountering Cecil and his party during his time in the Mysidia region in Final Fantasy IV.
    • During the events of the Mysidia Crisis, Lich is constantly cackling throughout the Mysidia Palace while following the party. This references a similar action done by Scarmiglione in Final Fantasy IV, which had him hissing while stalking the party on Mount Ordeals.
