Final Fantasy Wiki

A young man who appears in tales of Ivalice, a world foreign to this one. He lost his elder brother in the war with the Archadian Empire and was left alone in the world. He lives in the slums of the Royal City of Rabanastre, the capital of Dalmasca, and makes ends meet by doing odd jobs for a shopkeeper named Migelo—and by stealing from the Archadians who occupy the city. Though he hates the empire, which took both his brother and his homeland from him, it is not enough to inspire him to any greater action. He drifts through his days with only vague dreams of becoming a sky pirate to keep him moving.

Vaan (3★) description

Vaan is a summonable vision and optional playable character in Final Fantasy Brave Exvius. He serves as a character representative from Final Fantasy XII.


Vaan is a 3-6★ Rare Summon, whose job is listed as Warrior, and whose role is Support. He originally could awaken only up to 5★, but received a new form for the Final Fantasy XII event Henne Mines (which originally ran in July 2017 in the Global version). He has no innate element or status ailment resistances. His Trust Master reward is the heavy armor Maximilian (DEF+62).

Vaan's default attack is him slashing his foes twice in a row. His attack only has 2 hit(s) and deals damage approximately after 0.5 second with 0.5 second interval on the second hit. The first strike is a downward slice followed by a sideways slice.

His awakening materials are the following:


Vaan's stats at his highest levels are as follows (with no passive abilities taken into account), along with the maximum amount of stat points that can be increased through pot-enhancements:

Rarity Level HP MP ATK DEF MAG SPR Drop Check*(Maximum burst stone drops per hit)
3★ 40 1636 (+180) 68 (+30) 61 (+12) 60 (+12) 54 (+12) 54 (+12) 3 FFBE Limit Burst crystal.png
4★ 60 2111 (+240) 88 (+40) 79 (+16) 78 (+16) 70 (+16) 70 (+16) 4 FFBE Limit Burst crystal.png
5★ 80 2639 (+300) 110 (+50) 99 (+20) 97 (+20) 87 (+20) 88 (+20) 5 FFBE Limit Burst crystal.png
6★ 100 3430 (+450) 143 (+75) 128 (+30) 126 (+30) 113 (+30) 114 (+30) 6 FFBE Limit Burst crystal.png


Depending on his rarity, Vaan has two (3★), three (4★) or four (5-6★) ability slots. He also has some low-to-mid affinity to all three types of magic: White, Green (both Lvl 2-5), and Black Magic (Lvl 2-6).

Vaan is one of the few units who learns Steal by default (sharing this trait with Locke, Zidane, Rikku, Xon). Stealing can be handy for obtaining more materials.

Limit Burst

Vaan's Limit Burst receives three different names, depending on his rarity: Red Spiral (レッドスパイラル, Reddo Supairaru?), White Whorl (ディープハザード, Dīpu Hazādo?, lit. Deep Hazard), and Pyroclasm (メルトクリムゾン, Meruto Kurimuzon?, lit. Melt Crimson). A damage-type ability, it is a 1-hit attack that deals physical damage to all enemies. When performing White Whorl, Vaan approaches his foes then does an 'uppercut' to conjure a violent white tornado to devastate all enemies. This deals damage approximately after 2 seconds.

Its damage modifier depends on Vaan's LB level:

Rarity Name Change in Effect Cost
3★ Red Spiral Base (Lv. 1) Damage dealt (2.1x) 10 FFBE Limit Burst crystal.png
Max (Lv. 10) Damage dealt (2.55x)
4★ White Whorl Base (Lv. 1) Damage dealt (2.3x) 12 FFBE Limit Burst crystal.png
Max (Lv. 15) Damage dealt (3x)
5★ Pyroclasm Base (Lv. 1) Damage dealt (2.5x) 14 FFBE Limit Burst crystal.png
Max (Lv. 20) Damage dealt (3.45x)
6★ Pyroclasm Base (Lv. 1) Damage dealt (2.7x) 16 FFBE Limit Burst crystal.png
Max (Lv. 25) Damage dealt (3.9x)


Vaan can equip the following weapon types: daggers, swords, greatswords, staves, rods, axes, hammers, spears, maces and fists.

He can equip the following armor types: light shields, helms, clothes, light armor and heavy armor.

He can equip accessories.



  • Vaan's victory pose is him throw-thrusting his sword into the ground (which gets stuck diagonally); then he rest one foot on the handle, with one hand on the latter's knee. This mirrors his victory pose from Finl Fantasy XII when wielding a sword.
