"Yes, the twelve legendary weapons. They're weapons, they're legendary, and there are even twelve of them!"
—Ghido, mocking Bartz with his sardonic wit, Final Fantasy V

Ghido (ギード, Gīdo), also known as Gill, or Guido in the fan translation, is a character from the game Final Fantasy V. He is an ancient turtle who lives in a shrine on Galuf's homeworld. Bartz, Lenna, Galuf, and Faris try to visit him, but Exdeath destroys the shrine and submerges it.


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)
The party meets Ghido.
"Sweet Christmas, it's a talking turtle!"

Bartz and his friends travel to meet him there after acquiring a Submarine, and Bartz makes fun of him, thinking him to be an ordinary turtle. However, Galuf breaks up the fight, and Ghido tells them to travel to the Great Forest of Moore to intercept Exdeath.

Later, in the merged world, Ghido is living in his shrine, which has now resurfaced, and Bartz, Faris, and Krile visit him there. However, Krile has a splinter, which turns out to be Exdeath in disguise. Exdeath shows off his power here, sparring with Ghido, who puts up a good fight, and departs as the Interdimensional Rift emerges in the skies over Castle Tycoon. Ghido then accompanies Bartz, Faris, and Krile to the Library of the Ancients, where the scholars from Castle Surgate welcome him. With the Sealed Tome restored, he explains to the Light Warriors about the Sealed Weapons they will need before they take on Exdeath in the Rift. However, after they obtain the first tablet, Exdeath soon unleashes the power of the Void in the Library, declaring he's going to "take care of a turtle infestation." At the end of the game, the Library, along with Ghido and the scholars inside it, is restored.


  • In Dissidia Final Fantasy, one of Exdeath's exclusive weapons is known as Ghido's Whisker.
  • Also in Dissidia, upon reaching level 100 an extra voice sample for Exdeath will be available, this voice sample features him yelling the word "Turtle!" in an angry and surprised tone, a line he uttered during his battle with the turtle sage Ghido.
  • In the Dawn of Souls and 20th Anniversary remakes of the original Final Fantasy, Gill is one of the automatic names the player can choose for the Red Mage Job.
