Magic Lamp in Final Fantasy Record Keeper.

Demons rejoice in tempting Man with bewitching words, sweet as nectar, luring all but those with the most stolid of natures. Of all their temptations, one of the most famous is the magick lamp, said to grant wishes, which indeed it does...though the price be mortally dear.

A Curious Treasure

The Magic Lamp (魔法のランプ, Mahō no Ranpu?), also known as the Magical Lamp or the Magick Lamp, is a recurring item in the Final Fantasy series. It is often a miscellaneous or key item, and it has a different effect in each game.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Final Fantasy V[edit | edit source]

Lamp that summons a random monster when used in battle.


The Magic Lamp is obtained at Istory Falls after riding Boko for the first time in the Merged World. When used, it will call a summon by decreasing order of power each turn it is used, starting with Bahamut and ending with Chocobo. The Lamp can be recharged in a spring in the Great Sea Trench near the area where Phobos, Triton and Nereid are fought. It can also be recharged in the same spot in Istory Falls where it was originally collected.

After every summon has been used, the Magic Lamp will summon Chocobo until it is recharged. After 20 Chocobo summons, Eggman will be summoned instead, who attempts to use Egg Chop until the Lamp is recharged. Eggman's sprite does not actually appear in both the Japanese version and the English version, and the words "Too far away!" ("Can't reach" in the PlayStation version) are displayed with no damage being done to the enemy. The Magic Lamp will not summon Phoenix, nor will Odin use Gungnir when summoned via the Magic Lamp.

Final Fantasy VIII[edit | edit source]

Cid gives Squall the Magical Lamp.

Magical Lamp is given to Squall by Cid upon leaving for the SeeD mission in Timber. If the player heads immediately in the direction of the Garden after the conversation, the scene in which Cid would give the item will not trigger and it will be missed. The player can also sell the lamp, thus missing the chance of acquiring Diablos.

When used, a battle against Diablos commences. If victorious, the party will receive the summonable Guardian Force, Diablos, and his Triple Triad card. The lamp can be used any time, even during a Laguna dream. The lamp's description warns the player should save before using it.

Magical Lamps can also be obtained from the Chocobo World minigame by finding A items as Boko.
