Final Fantasy II Artwork

Flan (プリン Purin) is a common enemy type from the Final Fantasy series, first appearing under the name "flan" in Final Fantasy II. Flan appear true to their name, they are gelatinous, cylindrical creatures usually with large eyes and a mouth that takes up the majority of their front. In many of the games they will have stubby arms that spurt from the sides of their body.

In most games they appear synonymous with "Jellies," "Puddings," "Oozes," or similar, while in other versions, Flan is its own type of creature.

In many games flan are weaker creatures, encountered fairly early in the game. In some games there are some Flan with elemental affinity, such as an Ice Flan or Dark Flan. Flan, like other gelatinous creatures, are usually resistant to physical damage but weaker to magic. To accompany this, they are also likely to be formidable casters.

Final Fantasy X-2

Flans are still rampant in the various locales of Spira. They are generally the same as the Flans encountered in Final Fantasy X, but, possibly due to Flan being a dessert of Spanish origin (widely eaten in Spain and Mexico), they are given Spanish names, usually the Spanish word for the color they happen to be. Flan Palido means "Pale Flan" and Flan Azabache means "Jet Black Flan" (literally "Jet Flan")

Etymology

A Flan is a kind of dessert, although the exact type varies between countries. Due to the monster's appearance, it would be safe to assume that the name refers to the usage of the word to describe the creme caramel dessert. This is backed up further by a reference to eating parts of a Flan in Final Fantasy XII.
