A being with a deep connection to Terra. Expect the fight for your life if you intend to challenge him. Similar though their names may be, Maduin and Madeen are actually quite different in the FF universe.

Mirage Manual entry

Maduin is a minor character in World of Final Fantasy.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The player fights Maduin alongside Terra and a Magitek Armor B in the Nonary Region at the beginning of Chapter 19.

Maduin himself does not join the player's party, but the player can obtain a duplicate of him for their own party by unlocking the Maduin transfiguration in a Titan's Mirage Board after acquiring a Maduin Memento. The player can acquire this memento by not losing a unit in the Sandstalker minigame when taking on The Five Cogna Lords: Figaro intervention quest.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

The name Maduin was created at the time by Square's translator Ted Woolsey for the original Super Nintendo Entertainment System version. The name has remained consistent in all future releases of Final Fantasy VI.

Maduin's name in Japanese has no known origin. However, the summon's name can be translated as "Madin" when going off the Japanese katakana (マディン, Madin?). This has led to the summon's name often being confused with a similarly named summon, Madeen, which has the Japanese katakana of (マディーン, Madīn?).

A common fan interpretation of the Japanese name has been "Máel Dúin", based on the protagonist of Immram Maele Dúin (The Voyage of Máel Dúin), a tale of a sea voyage written in Old Irish. However, it does not match with the katakana of Máel Dúin (マイル デューン, Mairu Dyūn?) when based on the original Irish pronunciation.
