Yuffie summoning Ramuh

Ramuh is a summoning materia in "Episode INTERmission" in Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade. It summons Ramuh, an elderly wizard with pointy ears adorned with earrings and a flowing white beard and indigo robes, carrying a scepter embellished with a skull. His long robe conceals his feet, he levitates, and the fabric of his attire sparkles with electricity. The design is based on the Ramuh from the original Final Fantasy VII but with blue color tones and a more elaborate scepter.

Ramuh is a Lightning Lightning summon. He is the only summon the player can use in "Episode INTERmission" aside from the free DLC summons: Carbuncle, Cactuar, and Chocobo Chick.

Completing Combat Simulation: Ramuh in Chadley's VR Missions earns his materia. He is available to fight in Chapter 1, "Wutai's Finest". The player can take him on as just Yuffie as soon as they reach the Sector 7 Slums residential area, by talking to Chadley outside the neighborhood watch building. Alternatively, the player can wait in until Sonon Kusakabe joins the party as a guest.

Ramuh is fought in Chadley's combat simulator to earn his summoning materia. He is lightning-elemental, and thus weak to Wind Wind, easily exploited by Yuffie's Wind Ninjutsu, Windstorm and Wind spells. A good strategy is to throw Yuffie's weapon to Ramuh, use Wind Ninjutsu by spamming Square while the weapon is thrown with Elemental Ninjutsu active to fill Yuffie's ATB bar, and then "detonate" the weapon on Ramuh with Windstorm, dealing severe wind damage to him.

In hard mode, Ramuh can be fought in the Shinra Combat Simulator in Advanced Weaponry Division as part of an optional challenge. He is fought after Bahamut and Ifrit, and is considerably easier than the prior duo.

Role: Deals damage
Element: Lightning
Ultimate Attack: Judgment Bolt

After acquiring the Ramuh materia, the player can set it to Yuffie's or Sonon's weapon and summon him in battle when the command becomes available. Equipping Ramuh boosts the wearer's HP and MP slightly Ramuh Summoning Materia from FFVIIR INTERmission.

Summoning Ramuh costs 1 ATB segment. He can be summoned only when there is enough space. Ramuh is best summoned against bosses who are weak to lightning. His Voltaic Lance deals good damage but is less effective when enemies can move away from its impact zone, although the effect does persist for a long time; it would be great on a staggered or stationary foe. His Circuitous Bolt is great against groups of enemies, as it hits a large area, but again enemies could move away from its impact zone unless stationary or staggered.

When not commanded by the player, Ramuh teleports to an enemy and strikes them with his scepter.



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.
