Spoiler Warning: The following article contains major spoilers for Final Fantasy 16 and Kingdom Hearts 3.
The title of the most powerful mage in the history of Final Fantasy has been wrestled away from Donald Duck by a formidable new antagonist in Final Fantasy 16.
This highly anticipated RPG introduces colossal and formidable creatures known as Eikons, which represent Summons from the franchise’s past including Ifrit, Shiva, and Phoenix. One of these Eikons now claims the series’ most powerful spell.
This newfound mage supremacy belongs to Bahamut, the legendary dragon king from the original 1987 Final Fantasy. Although Bahamut has featured in multiple games within the franchise, this specific incarnation possesses unparalleled magical abilities.
In a significant moment within Final Fantasy 16, Bahamut wields a spell named Zettaflare, surpassing his previous most powerful spells: Megaflare, Gigaflare, and Teraflare. As a result, Bahamut now rightfully holds the title of the most powerful mage in Final Fantasy lore, albeit with the minor caveat that Donald Duck previously held this distinction.
In Kingdom Hearts 3, in a scene now subject to widespread mockery, Donald Duck himself wields Zettaflare. Although the move successfully defeats the primary antagonist, it renders Donald unconscious. Prior to this, no character, not even Bahamut, had demonstrated the ability to wield Zettaflare.
Thanks to Final Fantasy 16, Bahamut has reclaimed his status as the most powerful mage.
Final Fantasy 16 was released on June 22 to overwhelmingly positive feedback from fans. The game garnered attention for its cast of characters and the inclusion of the talented voice actor for Cid. Additionally, the introduction of the Active Time Lore feature, along with numerous references to the original 1987 game and beloved characters, demonstrates the game’s homage to the franchise’s rich history.
In our review, which awarded Final Fantasy 16 a rating of 9/10, IGN stated: “Featuring fast-paced, action-oriented combat, Final Fantasy 16 deviates from fan expectations, but its exceptional story, characters, and world-building rival the best the series has to offer. The innovative Active Time Lore feature sets a new standard for immersive, narrative-driven games.”
