Famfrit the Darkening Cloud (暗闇の雲ファムフリート Kurayami no Kumo Famufurīto lit. Famfrit the Dark Cloud) is an Esper from the world of Ivalice. The Esper of Water, he represents the Zodiac sign of Aquarius, the Water Carrier. This is evident since he carries a large jug on his shoulder. From his power of Water, his color sign is Clear. He is also referred to as the Kumbha Ascendant, which is the Sanskrit name of its Zodiac sign as used in Jyotish (Hindu) astrology.
His title is a reference to the Cloud of Darkness from Final Fantasy III, using her exact name in the Japanese version. His stance as the Esper of Water may be intended to reflect the Cloud of Darkness' desire to cause a "flood" of darkness on the world.
It is never revealed where Famfrit was discovered, since he is summoned by Dr. Cid when you fight him at the Pharos at Ridorana. Dr. Cid may have found him during his research into nethicite, or simply used the nethicite to obtain him at that moment from the Pharos Peak.
When both Cid and Famfrit are defeated, the player obtains the Glyph needed to command the Esper. He is the fifth of the five Espers obtained during the main storyline.
Briny Cannonade: A Water-elemental attack, and one of the few offensive Water attacks you can use in Final Fantasy XII.
Tsunami: A Water-elemental attack, and Famfrit's ultimate attack. In the middle of a maelstrom, Famfrit stands up against the rain. He pulls the chain of his giant ewer, hurling it far away. The chain becomes taut, causing the ewer to tip, and spilling the water all over the enemies standing on the sea, causing the sea to rage and huge waves to strike all foes in range.

Famfrit appears as a Scion. He can be called by anyone equipping the Ewer of Darkness when the Smash Gauge is orange. His attack is Tsunami as in Final Fantasy XII, and it deals Water damage to all foes in the battlefield.
