Lunar Ramuh is an optional boss in the Finest Fantasy for Advance and Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection versions of Final Fantasy IV. It is fought during Cid's Lunar Trial at the Lunar Ruins. When beaten, the player obtains the Flare Sledgehammer, Cid's ultimate weapon, and the Grimoire LR which, if used as an item, summons Lunar Ramuh to deal 9,999 Thunder-based damage to all enemies. Using up the Grimoire unlocks the trial door again.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Lunar Ramuh uses primarily Thunder attacks like Thundaga, Thunderbolt and Lightning. None of them are truly dangerous, and as long as Rosa or Porom are in the party to heal, the battle should be simple.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Ramuh could be based on Lahmu, who is often portrayed as a bearded man with a red sash and four to six curls on his head. Ramuh could also be loosely based on an epic Hindu poem, written by Valmiki, called Ramayana. Its protagonist is Raama (also spelled Rama), said to have been the incarnation of the Hindu god, Vishnu. The name Ramuh could be an amalgam of Raama and Vishnu.

In the Final Fantasy series, Ramuh is an old, bearded sage with a staff who casts thunder magic. He could be based on the king Ra-mu of a supposedly sunken continent, Mu. The element of lightning could come from the Hebrew word רעם (rá'am), meaning thunder, or thunderclap. His previous name, Indra, is the name of the king of the Devas in Hindu mythology, the god of rain, lightning, and storms.
