The Moogles Eight.


The Moogles Eight

The Moogles Eight (踊る8匹のモーグリ, Odoru 8-biki no Mōguri?, lit. 8 Dancing Moogles) is a team of singing and dancing moogles in Old Archades in Final Fantasy XII. Close to them is their abductor, the Shady Seeq, trying to sell the moogles off after tricking them with promises of food from around the world. The player can later tell them of this, resulting in the moogles beating up the Shady Seeq.

The player can view their dance by interacting with the moogles, and is offered multiple viewpoints.

The Moogles Eight use an uncommon but generic NPC model. Another notable character with this appearance is the Sandsea Moogle who stayed with the Eksir Berry plant on The Sandscale Bank area in Nam-Yensa Sandsea.

Behind the scenes[]

The Moogles Eight are likely an allusion to past dancing moogles: Mog in Final Fantasy VI whose special command is Dance, Moogle Dance is a possible Limit Break for Cait Sith in Final Fantasy VII, and MiniMog's ability is Moogle Dance in Final Fantasy VIII.


The moogle's Japanese name, Mōguri (モーグリ), is a portmanteau of the words for mole (土竜, mogura?) and bat (蝙蝠, kōmori?). "Moogle" is the localized version of Mōguri, losing the pun, though "moogle" has started to appear in Japanese sources as well.
