Final Fantasy Wiki

Odin is a god from Final Fantasy Legend II. He watches over fallen heroes in his palace. If the party dies, they are sent to Odin where he revives them.



Odin is a tall, elder man with a beard clad in fine armor and a cape.


Odin is one of many new "gods" given power by MAGI. His power is the ability to revive the dead on the condition that they challenge him to battle someday. Unlike all the other gods who are driven mad by their power, Odin is never corrupted from his original human purpose—to fight the greatest warriors in all the worlds.


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

There is no story for Odin if the player has not died at least once during the game, he'll simply fight the party without saying a word nor will he give a speech after being defeated.

If the party dies at any point during their adventure, they will appear before Odin inside Valhalla Palace. He will greet the party, and revive them if they wish to continue. If chosen to continue, he will make a promise with the leader to fight against him someday.

When the party reaches Valhalla World, they will find Odin within his palace. He will say to the leader that he has been waiting for him/her, and asks if s/he remembers the promise they made. The leader asks Odin why he wants to fight and Odin replies that he'll give the answer to him/her if the s/he wins. One of the leader's companions will point out that if they defeat him, he won't be able to revive the party anymore when they end up being defeated in battle. Odin will laugh and wonders if they can win.

After Odin's defeat, the party gains eight MAGI. Odin congratulates the leader, his last wish was to fight with the best and greatest warriors ever, so now his wish was granted. He bids the party farewell.

Spoilers end here.


Unlike the other bosses, Odin comes with his own entourage. He's accompanied by Sleipnir and two OdinCrow (however, due to the character limit of eight letters, they are in fact ravens). Odin has 3700 HP, he can use Ice, Lightng, and can also use the Gungnir spear on the party. They can quickly defeat the player if they get a surprise attack on the party.

If the player hasn't lost any battle beforehand, the fight with Odin will be considerably harder.
