Ramuh is a boss from Final Fantasy IV: The After Years.


Battle Edit

Ramuh usually will cast Thundara twice in succession, and follow up with Thundaga, and every once in awhile casting his Judgement Bolt.

There are two ways to end the battle, by either dwindling his HP all the way to zero or just enough to have Rydia try and talk some sense into him while healing the party from Ramuh's attacks. If the party defeats Ramuh with the first method, they will lose him for good, but if Rydia convinces Ramuh to hold off his attacks he will join as her Eidolon.

Etymology Edit

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.
