By Master Xande's orders, you will be crushed!!!


Titan is a boss in Final Fantasy III. He guards the Earth Crystal in the Ancients' Maze, possibly a creation of said Crystal, forced to work for Xande or corrupted by darkness.

Titan will mostly use physical attacks that can deal severe damage. He can cast Quake to damage the whole party at once. The party's best chances of surviving are to have a party of Dragoons and a White Mage to heal. Once Titan is defeated, the party receives the last batch of Jobs: Summoner, Magus, Devout, Black Belt (3D version only), Sage (3D version only), and Ninja (3D version only).

Titan is not the same entity as the recurring summon Titan, their names being spelled differently in Japanese. In order to prevent confusion, recurring appearances of this Titan are often called Phlegethon in localizations of later releases.

His appearance is a palette swap of Hecatoncheir.

Titan appears as a boss in both the Classic and Elite versions of the Ancients' Maze realm dungeon. He has access to powerful physical attacks and can use powerful spells such as Quake and Flare. He is immune to earth-elemental attacks and has no weaknesses to exploit.

In addition, Titan has also appeared as an event boss multiple times.



Titans were members of the second order of divine beings in Greek mythology. They were descendants of the primordial deities born from the Chaos, and they preceded the gods of Olympus, who went on to overthrow them.
