Odin is a member of the great council in Jack and the Beanstalk: The Real Story. Odin is the one that formally charges Jack Robinson for the crimes of his family. Press material states that "Odin may have only one working eye, but he sees the truth." He is strict and bent on following the rules and has no sympathy towards Jack.
He is named after the Norse god.
Odin (オーディン Ōdin) is a recurring summon in the series. He has appeared in every Final Fantasy game from Final Fantasy III through to Final Fantasy IX, as well as Final Fantasy Tactics. Most commonly, Odin will appear and slice though enemies with his sword, cleaving them in two and inflicting Instant Death. Other games give Odin the ability to damage enemies normally as well.
His basic physical characteristics are that of a demonic-looking knight with horns, a long, curved scimitar as his weapon, and a cape. This progressed to also include a lance-type weapon called Gungnir. He always is seen on his horse, who takes on demonic-type attributes as well, such as red eyes and body armor. Sleipnir, Odin's steed in Norse mythology, has eight legs; in some games in the series, Odin's steed has six legs. In Final Fantasy III, Sleipnir can be encountered as a six-legged enemy, while Odin's steed is a normal horse.
Odin can be summoned after being defeated or bought, using the Level 6 Summon Magic spell Catastro. Sleipnir also appears as a regular enemy.
The King of Baron takes the role of Odin in this game, having taken the form of a summoned beast after being murdered by Cagnazzo. He can be found in the basement of Baron Castle after a specific event in the storyline. In the library at the Feymarch, the game says that he was undefeated until he was struck by lightning when his sword was raised into the air. His weakness is Thunder. After defeating him (only possible after generally gaining notable strength, by exploiting his weakness of Thunder magic, or through Kain Highwind and his Jump ability), he can be called by Rydia. There's a 50% chance he'll follow through with the attack, however, and doesn't work against bosses.
Odin appears in the Gathering Chapter in a boss battle teamed with Cecil Harvey against Ceodore's party. He is under Maenad's control but comes to his senses and knocks out Cecil freeing him from Maenad's control. He then becomes a Summon for Rydia.
The Summoner job class has ability to call him. His attack, Sword of Vengeance (Zantetsuken), slices enemies in two. If the enemy is immune to Instant Death, it uses an attack called Javelin (Gungnir), which deals non-elemental damage to one opponent. He is found in the basement of Castle of Bal, which is accessible from the nearby caves, where the party has to defeat him in one minute or less in order to obtain him.
The Odin magicite can be found from Ancient Castle in the World of Ruin. Odin was apparently the guardian of the castle during the War of the Magi, 1,000 years before the events of the game. Once the Magicite is equipped by any character, they can summon the Odin Esper. The instant-kill attack is called Zantetsuken (Atom Edge in the original version), and it costs 70 MP to summon. The character can also learn Meteor from this magicite at a rate of X1. He can be upgraded into the esper Raiden by being shown in front of the petrified queen, who has a similar attack called Shin-Zantetsuken (True Edge in the original version) and teaches the Quick spell, also at a rate of X1.
Odin's Level Up bonus increases Speed by 1.
Normal monsters get slashed in half as Odin rides by (attack name Steel Bladed Sword, a very rough translation of Zantetsuken). If all monsters are immune to instant death attacks (most bosses and tougher enemies), Odin throws Gungnir to the heavens and it impales one enemy (attack name mistranslated as Gunge Lance). This attack deals non-elemental damage.
Level -- AP needed
Odin can be summoned in battle using the appropriate Materia in this game.
Odin can be added to the DMW by obtaining his Materia in this game. His signature attack still remains Zantetsuken in this game, and it attempts to remove all enemies from the battle. Only a small group of enemies are immune to this effect.
Appears as a non-controllable Guardian Force; he can appear at random times and strike the enemies at the beginning of a battle with his Zantetsuken, instantly killing the enemies by slicing them in half. Odin, however, will not appear against nearly all bosses (One exception is explained below) and battles against Tonberries and Cactuars. If acquired before the end of disc 3, Odin will appear in a battle with Seifer Almasy, the only time he appears in a boss battle. However, Seifer somehow manages to reverse the Zantetsuken and bisects Odin with his gunblade. The Zantetsuken is knocked from Odin's hand, and a mysterious hand reaches out of a portal to catch the blade. This is revealed to be Gilgamesh, who replaces Odin for the remainder of the game. However, it is possible to acquire Odin in disc 4 if the player can navigate their way to the Ragnarok from the Sacred Chocobo Forest and Odin/Gilgamesh has not been acquired beforehand.
To acquire Odin, the player must go to the Centra Ruins. Once they enter, a timer starting at least 20 minutes will begin to count down, until the player defeats Odin. The player must solve a few puzzles within the time limit, obtain the code (write it down, just in case), and open the door to where Odin awaits. After the player opens the door, they may go out of Centra Ruins and back. This can give the player more time to defeat Odin. When the player enters the room and speak with him, the battle will begin. Odin does not attack in the battle, but when time runs out, he will attack the player with Zantetsuken, causing an instant Game Over. When Odin is defeated, the player will obtain Odin's Triple Triad card, and Odin will randomly appear at the beginning of random battles as noted above. The chance of this happening is 12.9%, or a 33/256 chance.

The Eidolon Odin is used by Queen Brahne, after she extracts Princess Garnet's eidolons from her, to destroy Cleyra. Garnet can gain the ability to summon Odin through the item Dark Matter. As a summon, Odin performs his Zantetsuken in the same way he had in previous games, destroying enemies outright. However, if Garnet has the Odin's Sword ability equipped, the Zantetsuken will deal damage to enemies it doesn't defeat outright. You can get Odin's Sword by finding Ancient Aroma in Ipsen's Castle. With that ability equipped, Odin is usually slightly stronger than even Ark (although damage decreases as you obtain more ore) and cost less to summon too. In the full summoning animation, he uses his sword to deliver the attack but in the shorter ones, Gungnir simply drops from the sky, even if the attack is called Zantetsuken.
The chances of Odin inflicting Instant Death on enemies is equal to half the number of Ores in the player's inventory. Meaning, if the player has 99 Ores, then the percentage will be around 50%. If the ability Odin's Sword is active, then the amount of damage Odin can do is equal to 145 minus the total number of Ore in the party's inventory.
Odin appears as one of the terrestrial avatar in Final Fantasy XI, and is also the name of a server.
Odin, known to many as the Dark Rider, is the Avatar of Darkness in Vana'diel. Countless years before the start of the game, he fought against Alexander for dominion over the mortal realm. Although he defeated Alexander, he too was beaten. Much later Odin emerges once again in the Empire of Aht Urhgan. Like the other Avatars who slumber within the protocrystals and only project images of themselves into the world, Odin needs a host to incarnate himself. To this end he uses the undead Prince Luzaf, who swore vengeance on Aht Urhgan for obliterating his home land of Ephramad. In exchange for giving Luzaf the power to enact his revenge, he agrees to be Odin's host so he may destroy Alexander during the age of Judgment. At first Luzaf agrees to this, but as he spends time with the kidnapped Empress of Aht Urhgan, Nashmeira, he realizes that the people who destroyed his homeland are not the same as those who inhabit the empire today. However when Nashmeira attempts to stop Alexander and is hurt, Luzaf becomes enraged allowing Odin to take hold of him again. After a brief battle with Alexander, Odin is ultimately subdued by Luzaf who refuses to permit a battle that would cost so many innocent lives.
Odin is fought as the final boss in the Einherjar dungeon in the Final Fantasy XI: Treasures of Aht Urhgan expansion pack. Players face off with him within the Hazhalm Testing Grounds in the appropriately named "Odin's Chamber", in the fourth basement of the dungeon. Among his skills, he is capable of using Zantetsuken to instantly KO all characters in range, making him a deadly opponent to face, even in numbers.
It's also implied that he supplied the Shadow Lord with the demonic Kindred army. Indeed, his protocrystal is even said to be housed deep beneath the Castle Zvahl.
Odin does not appear in Final Fantasy XII, but is rather mentioned by Al-Cid when he read his intelligence report to the party during their meeting at Mt. Bur-Omisace. Al-Cid mentions that the Odin is an airship of the 1st Fleet of the Archadian Imperial Army.
Odin has particular plot significance, being the true form of Velis. He is also a rank 3 Non-Elemental Physical summon. His special attack, Zantetsuken, deals heavy damage to all enemies in front of him. He can be obtained with an Esper Pact after defeating him in the story.
Odin is the Eidolon residing in Lightning's rose-shaped crystal, meaning he cannot be summoned by anyone else. He appears as a gigantic horned knight wearing a white cape and wielding a large double-sided sword with an "S" shape in one hand, with a massive shield on his opposite arm. Lightning and Hope will first face him as a boss, as a test to prove Lightning's strength to him. In his Gestalt Mode, Odin transforms into the horse Sleipnir for Lightning to ride on and she uses his detachable swords as weapons. His attacks seem to be aligned with the elements of Lightning and Wind.
Odin will appear in the upcoming Final Fantasy Agito XIII.
Odin can be learned for 900 Job Points. He attacks for non-elemental damage instead of instantly killing all enemies, unlike other appearances. It costs 50 MP and has a speed of 12.
Odin appears in a quest description but never in person. If the player succeeds in the aforementioned quest, the will receive Odin's Lance, a 2-handed spear with an attack score of 55.
Odin appears as a summon in Dissidia. Upon being summoned, it creates a Break on the opponent's Brave Points, with a 50% accuracy. Like most of the summons in Dissidia, Odin can be summoned by two distinct ways: Automatically, where his Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- artwork appears, and manually, where his Final Fantasy VI artwork appears. Odin's auto version can be obtained in the third stage of the Shade Impulse I storyline, and its manual version can be obtained in the third stage of the Shade Impulse II storyline.
Note that the auto version will only be summoned when enemy's BP are higher than your current HP (when your opponent's BP are in relief).
Odin lives in Valhalla and seeks strong warriors. He will offer to return the party to their last battle whenever they are slain on the condition that they return someday to face him in battle. When the party reaches Valhalla during the storyline, he will uphold his end of the bargain after a short conversation. If the party reaches Valhalla without getting a Game Over, he will not say anything and immediately segue into battle with the party.
In battle Odin is accompanied by Sleipnir and his "Odincrows" (however, this is a mistranslation, as they are in fact ravens).
Odin appears in Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon.
Odin appears in Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon 2. It is a very useful summon against the most powerful enemy in the game, Death (who has a different name depending on how it appears). Death's defenses render most attacks useless, and even summons like Bahamut deal only two-digit damage. Odin is the only summon able to deal damage in the hundreds to Death.
Odin appears as a scenery element in Fantasia Track, with the same look as in the Chocobo Mysterious Dungeon Series.
Odin is a non-elemental card, and has six cards under it's name.

In the anime, Final Fantasy: Unlimited, Odin makes an appearance, as a summon, to destroy Cube Arusha. The Soil Charge Triad (Soil is like the colored bullet of a Magun, used to summon creatures) needed to summon Odin is:
Followed by saying: "Pierce! Summoned Creature! Odin!"
In the English audio version, the Soil Charge Triad was changed to:
Followed by saying: "Penetrate! I summon you! Odin!"

Óðinn (Odin) (pronounced OH-din) is the leader of the Æsir in Norse Mythology and is the god of wisdom, poetry, war and death and he is attributed with the discovery of Runes. He, along with his two brothers, Vili and Vé, is credited with the creation of the realm of mankind, Miðgarður (Midgard), and for mankind itself. He is the employer of the female warriors known as valkyries (who control the fate of battles and collect the dead from the battleground) and he reigns over the hall of Valhöll (Valhalla), the Norse equivalent of heaven (only those who fought bravely and died in combat were eligible to enter). Óðinn sacrificed his left eye to drink from Mimir's Well of Wisdom to gain knowledge of past, present and future. His eight legged horse, Sleipnir, and his magical dwarven spear Gungnir have also been depicted. At Ragnarök (the end of the gods) Óðinn shall rally the dead warriors to fight on the side of the gods. Óðinn fathered Þór (Thor), the god of lightning, and many others.

Odin Nesloor was a man on a quest to find his family.
