Shantotto was not meant to be a major character in Final Fantasy XI, but her presence is felt across more than a dozen appearances outside of the MMO realm. The following is a list of Shantotto's appearances in and out of the series universe.

Series appearances[]

Final Fantasy XIV[]

Wind-Up Shantotto.

If you fail to treat her right, she will set your pants alight.

Minion description

Revisiting her interdimensional travel spell, Shantotto comes across Eorzea and decides to conquer it to end the conflict with her golems testing the land. When the Adventurer interferes, Shantotto enlarges her Wind-Up Shantotto to fight in her stead. Once her minion is defeated, Shantotto appears before the Adventurer to explain her reasons and gives the Wind-Up Shantotto to the Adventurer and warns him to treat the doll right. From there, recognized to be beyond the Eorzeans' ability to deal with, Shantotto returns to her realm while promising to return to check on their progress.

Dissidia Final Fantasy (2008)[]

Artwork by Tetsuya Nomura.

Shantotto represents Final Fantasy XI, and plays as a special character, assumed to oppose Gabranth. She has little influence on the story, being an extra character as well as the only one appearing from Final Fantasy XI, appearing only once in the main storyline.

In her bonus storyline Shantotto is the guardian of a sanctum where other scholars and mages are allowed to study in peace. The area has recently been infested by manikins (by Shantotto herself in manikin-based experiments, which she divulges only in asides to herself), prompting Shantotto to task the player to destroy them. As a "reward," Shantotto gives the player a "private lesson" and battles them before going to duel Gabranth, though she can't recall his name.

Her alternate form has her wear the Black Mage artifact armor, and the black mage relic armor in EX Mode.

Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy[]

Shantotto is a full-fledged warrior of Cosmos in flashbacks. She is the guardian of Cosmos's throne and protects her from Gabranth when the judge attacks the goddess. She is present when Prishe finds the Warrior of Light and helps her talk Cosmos into making him one of her warriors.

Theatrhythm Shantotto.png

After the leaving her position as minister of the Windurst Orastery, Shantotto pursues her research free from responsibility. When prevailed upon by adventurers, she unleashes her peerless black magic upon any who dare stand in her way, with a strength that even the most grizzled of veterans quake before. Nowhere is there an enemy that can bring her down—her only failure in life being the failure to marry when she had the chance.

World of Final Fantasy[]

WoFF Shantotto.png
Who's Who
CV: Candi Milo / Megumi Hayashibara
Age in Grymoire: Late 40s, according to Besaid's older folk
(Pressing Shantotto for details is not advised)
Notes: Doctor / Pantologist / Curse professional / Black magic expert / Speaks in rhyme / "Ahhh, ha ha ha ha!" / Overbearing, but a certifiable genius / Do not make her angry
Always There to Assist?
When someone tells you that they're a specialist in curses, you immediately think bad thoughts. Still, a tool isn't good or bad in and of itself. It's all about how you use it, and Shantotto uses her knowledge of the hexing arts to solve problems for those in need. So curse or not, it can be a good thing! Now that that's settled, who wants one?
Shantotto's original soul was Tarutaru, a race known for their diminutive stature (not that it stopped her from towering above others in spirit, mind you). Luckily, here on Grymoire, everyone is already pretty tiny. When Shantotto's soul was born into a Lilikin body, her vertical challenges vanished.
Just Getting Started
Shantotto is the oldest Medium you'll meet in Grymoire (if you exclude Sherlotta and people removed from time's normal flow). That said, she still hasn't reached the age the original Shantotto was during the Crystal War. In other words, Shantotto's still got plenty of time to do great things in Grymoire.
She's on Your Side, Honest
Shantotto's pursuits are so lofty that she frequently forgets to connect with mere layfolk. And let's face it: her mastery of black magic and curses doesn't help public relations much, either. But as evil as her hobbies make her sound, one thing should be infinitely clear: no matter what schemes she's got bubbling around in that mysterious head of hers, you can bet it's always for the greater good.
Shantotto has a proven track record in Besaid, and knows exactly how to keep the locals safe and happy. So if you thought she'd completely lost her mind when she tried to do the Quacho Queen in—never fear! Everything she does has a purpose.
First World of Origin:


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

The following is a list of quotes uttered by Shantotto when talking to her.

Besaid Laboratory

Nothing better to do?


Ah. Have you got another mess you need repressed?


Make no mistake: only my curses have the power to save the world in its darkest, dire hour.


I'm presently employed. Go away, before I'm annoyed.


You'd be amazed at what I've wrought from that ruby you brought.
I reckon I couldn't convince you to fetch me a second?

Spoilers end here.
