This article is about an ongoing project that's continually being updated. As such, some of the information might be inaccurate or likely to change. Please look over our policy for updating articles covering live content before editing this page.

A Special Event is an Event type in Final Fantasy Record Keeper that does not fall into any assigned category and that is released often in celebration of a significant milestone in the game. They may be Realm-neutral, but still offer exclusive Rewards as the other three standard types of Events.

These Events may follow any of the three other Event formats, or they may not be Events at all in the typical sense (as was the case with one such Event to have aired).

Festive Fantasy
FFRK Festive Fantasy Event.png
The first global-exclusive event done in the fashion of the Festival of Orbs. As opposed to Festival of Orbs gil and experience rewards were rather low. This was countered with a "+" difficulty dungeon where there were slightly better major orbs rewards for First Time and Completion and higher chance of encountering Cactuars and Gigantuars as opposed to the Heroic difficulty dungeon. December 16, 2015 - January 1, 2016
First Anniversary Gala FFRK celebrated its first year as a full game in late March, and it was indeed a grand gala. Fan polls were conducted in early March to determine the Main Hall track for the event as well as the newest Summon skill that would drop during the event. Quizzes, polls and more were set up on a special Anniversary site. Title splash changed to honor event. Main Hall music was changed to a selection of tracks highlighting the game's scope. A three-day Lucky Relic Draw was held. Super Soul Break Spectacular IV was held. A total of 90 free Mythril stones was distributed to all players.
