Alexander (アレクサンダー Arekusandā) is a summoned creature that appears in various games in the Final Fantasy series. Its attack Holy Judgment, sometimes just called Judgment or Justice, deals holy-based damage to all enemies.
Alexander does not appear in this game. However, Yoshitaka Amano's art of the Giant of Babil looks very similar to the future summon, particularly the incarnation seen in Final Fantasy VI. Housed on the Red Moon, the Giant of Babil is summoned to the Earth by gathering the Crystals at the Tower of Babil to activate a dimensional elevator. The connection with Alexander is cemented by the battle with Proto-Babil, which uses attacks such as Divine Judgment, the signature attack of Alexander.
Alexander first appears as an Esper in this game. It is obtained by defeating the Wrexsoul in Doma Castle with Cyan in the World of Ruin, and checking the throne in the King's Room. Its summon is called Divine Judgment (Justice in earlier translations). Its Spell Power is 114, and it is unblockable. It costs 90 MP to summon, and it teaches the following spells:
Alexander also appears in the Anthology version's FMV, where it proved to be highly effective against the final boss. Its attack not only seriously hurts Kefka, but also apparently detonated his tower.
Alexander is a Summon Materia that is found in the Great Glacier by defeating a snow woman there. Its attack spell is called Judgement. It costs 120 MP and deals holy type damage to all enemies. Although there aren't many monsters weak to holy in the game, Alexander is the only source of holy magic for player characters to cast, due to the Holy spell being exclusive to a major plot point in the story.

Alexander cannot be summoned by the player in Final Fantasy IX, however Alexander plays a major role in the storyline.
Alexander is the Eidolon used by the Summoners hundreds of years before the start of the game, back when they inhabited the Mist Continent. During an experiment however, the Eidolon went on a rampage. To stop Alexander from being used again, the Summoners left the Mist Continent, leaving him there. They also divided his gem into four fragments.
Hundreds of years later Kuja desperately seeks Alexander's power so he can overthrow Garland and become ruler of both Gaia and Terra. Alexander can only be summoned when there is a dire emergency, and all four pieces of the Gem are gathered at Alexandria Castle. Using Queen Brahne Alexandros's greed, Kuja manipulates Alexandria to conquer most of the Mist Continent, along with the gems he needs. Princess Garnet and Eiko summoned it together when Kuja attacked Alexandria with Bahamut. Alexander defeated Bahamut easily with a flurry of holy light. However, Kuja tried to summon the Invincible so he could steal Alexander and manipulate the Eidolon for his own uses. This plan backfired when Garland appeared in control of the Invincible and used it to destroy both Alexander and Alexandria.
Unlike previous games where Alexander appeared, Final Fantasy IX gives more details to Alexander's nature. This is the first time where Alexander's Holy element is drawn out by four magnificent, seraphic wings. The Eidolon's immobile qualities are explained by its guardianship and attachment to Alexandria Castle.
Alexander is the name of a server, as well as the final boss in the Final Fantasy XI: Treasures of Aht Urhgan storyline.
Two different incarnations of Alexander feature in the game. The first nicknamed "The Iron Colossus" was constructed countless aeons before the game began by the now dead Alzadaal civilization. Upon it's completion the spirit of the true Alexander Avatar sleeping in a protocrystal animated the giant construct and fought against the "Dark Rider": Odin. Both Gods were defeated in the battle and the Alzadaal Empire was obliterated. The Iron Colossus fell to earth in fragments becoming the modern day Ruins of Alzadaal.
In the current game time the Aht Urhgan Empire besieged by it's foes in the Far East as well as the Beastmen at home, resurrected Alexanders control core as a remedy to their woes. The core was much smaller than the original Alexander. Immeasurably powerful this version was operated by a pilot within the device, Razfahd. However when Empress Nashmeira attempted to intervene the Avatar Alexander possessed the device awakening its true power. When Odin appeared once again, Alexander and Odin attempted to destroy each other once more. Realising that Alexander has no care for the Empires inhabitants and would willingly destroy them in order to defeat Odin, Razfahd refused to co-operate and using the last of his strength halts the Avatar from within.
In battle, Alexander uses his trademark Divine Judgement at 50% health (similar to prime avatars), and has a variety of other new attacks such as Divine Spear, Radiant Sacrament, and Mega Holy.
Alexander makes a return in the form of a playable summon as the Eidolon of Hope Estheim. In this game, Alexander takes on a far more human appearance than in other games, possessing visible hands for the first time. He uses his powerful fists to strike enemies, but is also capable of long range attacks. Hope, Lightning, and Fang will first face him as a boss, as a test to prove Hope's strength to him. In his Gestalt Mode, Alexander becomes a fortress surrounding the battlefield while Hope stays on him, giving him orders. He fires beams of holy light from his cannons. According to Motomu Toriyama, Alexander is a "tactical commander."
Alexander appears as a summon in Dissidia Final Fantasy. When summoned it "locks" the user's Brave Points for a short time, preventing its change. Like some summons in Dissidia, Alexander has two different appearances: an Auto version which is triggered by performing a Brave Break on the opponent, and shows an artwork Final Fantasy VII appearance, and a Manual version which shows a colored version of his Final Fantasy VIII artwork. Alexander's auto version is obtained in the third stage of the Destiny Odyssey IX storyline and its manual version is obtained in the second stage of the Destiny Odyssey IX storyline. The manual version requires the player to complete Destiny Odyssey IX first.
Followed by saying: "Shine! I summon you, ALEXANDER!"
Alexander also appears in Dragon Quest & Final Fantasy in Itadaki Street Portable.
"Alexander" is a common western name of Greek origin, the original name being Ἀλέξανδρος (Alexandros), "Protector of Men", an adequate reference to the Summon's Holy elemental nature. It may also be a reference to the famous Macedonian king, Alexander the Great.

In Japanese, his surname has been written as either フロスト or 降霜. His given name can be interpreted as "Defensive Cold", which may make a reference to Alexander's hostile and icy personality. He is called "Alex" regularly by others, most specifically by Adrienne Guadiacco. During the Homecoming Duel Tournament, he was also dubbed the Winter King by the Announcer and many of the spectators.

Alexander Frost, along with Adrienne Guadiacco and Lionel Reyes, is one of the elite students at the Academy, and arguably the best. He is widely regarded as the "King" of the Obelisk Blue Dorm for his remarkable Dueling talent and his extraordinary good looks. While Alexander is easily one of the most popular and admired students at the Academy, he detests relationships with most people, and is cold and hostile to the point of icy indifference. The only exception to this behavior is his friend, Adrienne Guadiacco. Alexander is also vain and manipulative, and not above using people to achieve his own ends.
The only child of the famous and wealthy Dueling entrepreneur, Gerard Frost, who helped spread Duel Monsters to Europe, Alexander conceals a deep sorrow and suffers from repeated bouts of depression. More than six years ago, he suffered a severely traumatizing experience in the snow-covered mountains near his home. After spending the night in the frozen wilderness and fighting hypothermia, Alexander made his difficult way back home, only to discover that his father had been murdered by foreign terrorist activity while on a business trip in Greece. Upon hearing the news, his mother immediately fell prostrate with grief, eventually evolving into incurable dementia. Unable to care for his mother, and devastated by his father's murder, he entered a state of deep depression for two months. During this time, his personality drastically changed, becoming far more direct and aggressive, while also coming to view others as objects rather than beings, usually calculating their value to him.
Alexander places fourth in the Midterm Exam, and takes a spot as one of the Top Twelve Dueling Participants for the Homecoming Duel Tournament. He and Adrienne later discover that a mysterious young girl, Yuuki Vandrille, scored a perfect score on the exam. Unable to bear the thought of coming out second-best, he and Adrienne scour the Academy's computer network in an attempt to learn more about her. After their search turns up no clues, he and Adrienne seek out Hayden Omirou, a Ra Yellow student famed for his habit of keeping informational tabs on other Duelists. After convincing the wary Hayden into Dueling for the information, he brutally defeats him. From Hayden, he and Adrienne learn not only about the other competitors, but also about Yuuki Vandrille's troubled past, and the mystery of her runaway brother. Due to their rough treatment, he and Adrienne make enemies of both Raphael Luiseruga, another Ra Yellow, and of Hayden.
Planning to use their newly-gained information to torture Yuuki emotionally, Alexander and Adrienne return to the Obelisk Blue Dorm, only to encounter Aurion in the guise of Mark Tanner. After a shocking and unexpected comment from the disguised Aurion, Alexander becomes extremely upset and breaks his veneer of icy composure. The false Mark's behavior prompts them to seek out another Obelisk Blue, Lionel Reyes, to defeat him in a Duel in exchange for their support in the Tournament. After Lionel shares his findings, the two break their end of the bargain, resulting in another enemy.
Alexander's first opponent in the Tournament is Adam Danes, a brutal and well-known Pro Leaguer. He quickly dispels any illusions about his talent, and defeats Danes unscathed in a single turn. He and Adrienne later encounter a mysterious masked man who seems to know Adrienne; not too long afterward, the duo accidentally meets Lucien Lachance, who reveals his true nature as the Dark Brotherhood's leader. Lachance offers them a sinister proposal to join the Brotherhood, claiming that the two of them have the makings of true greatness. Disdainful, Alexander helps convince Adrienne to refuse his offer, only to be sent into a blind rage when Lucien reveals that he murdered Alexander's father, Gerard Frost, personally. Both Alexander and Adrienne swear to find Lucien again and make him pay for actions, no matter the cost.
His next opponent is Lucas Lorry, a confident and cheerful member of the Slifer Red Dorm. After a heated Duel, Alexander is successful and wins the match. His success is short-lived, however, as the Brotherhood launches a frightening public demonstration, causing many of the Tournament's participants to withdraw with concerns for their own safety. Due to this, Adrienne Guadiacco wins her match against Hayden Omirou by default, and is sent directly to the Semi-Finals. To his obvious discomfort, Alexander learns that his next opponent is to be Adrienne, his one true friend. Despite the unfortunate turn of events, Alexander promises that he will devote his full ability to their match.
Alexander plays an Ice Counter Deck, formed after a traumatizing experience in the snow-covered mountains near his home and the tragic news of his father's murder. His Deck centers on the placement and distribution of Ice Counters among monsters on the field, effectively immobilizing them, as monsters with Ice Counters cannot change their Battle Positions. Some of Alexander's own cards also benefit from having Ice Counters, such as Blizzard Tiger and his signature monster, Shimmering Dragon. Through the removal of these Ice Counters, Alexander gains access to a wide variety of tactics during a Duel, ranging from the negation of card effects to the immobilization and destruction of opposing cards.
