Story

Four hundred years prior to the modern time of Final Fantasy, she tossed the Lufenian civilization into ruin, with only a village, a single airship, and her personal haunt left standing. With the Wind Crystal under her control, the wind itself has died down. As the first to awaken, she is the most powerful of the Four Fiends, and uses several powerful attacks. Tiamat also appears on the fourth basement of the Chaos Shrine 2000 years in the past, where she is slightly stronger.

First Battle

Tiamat's location.

Since Tiamat is resistant to all elemental spells, the most effective magic against her are Flare and Break, which she is weak to. She generally uses either a strong physical attack to hit for around 250 damage, or two area attacks. These are:

  • Thunderbolt: A Lightning-based attack. Healara will mend this, and it is also a good idea to cast NulShock.
  • Poison Gas: Not as strong as Thunderbolt, but may inflict the Poison status. It is probably a better idea for your White Wizard to keep using Healara to cure the physical damage instead of wasting turns using Poisona.
  • In the GBA and PSP remakes, if the player uses a Cockatrice Claw on Tiamat, she will die instantly.
  • In the NES version, using the spell BANE on Tiamat has an extremely low chance of instantly killing her.

Tiamat must be fought again in the Chaos Shrine of the Past, along with the other Fiends, so she cannot summon Garland to the past time to form the loop that created Chaos. As well as the other Fiends, it has lost its weaknesses and is more powerful, making this a hard fight.

Trivia

  • In Dissidia Final Fantasy, her summon file says she is called the "demonic dragon" and one of the rulers of hell.
