Ramuh

Ramblings: Ramuh brings back so many memories. He's the coolest Esper out of the first four that you get! I remember being so amazed watching his awesome summon power for the first time. Bolt 2 is a very powerful spell early on in the game.

Stray
Ramblings: Its Cait Sith from FF7! He's a fun Esper to use when you're tired of using the same old attacks in your battles. He bounce across the battlefield and casts Muddle on all your enemies. Stray's only drawback is that he gives you a useless bundle of spells.
Location: You find Stray in Zozo on the World of Balance.
Level Up: Magic Power goes up by 1!
Spells:
Muddle - 7%
Imp - 5%
Float - 2%

Siren
Ramblings: Siren's okay. Her bundle of spells are decent for early on in the game. Her summon is cool! The battlefield gets all colorful and wavy and musical notes fly across the screen.
Location: You find Stray in Siren on the World of Balance.
Level Up: Max HP goes up by 10%!
Spells:
Sleep - 10%
Mute - 8%

Slow - 7%
Fire - 6%

Kirin
Ramblings: Kirin is actually quite useful for most of the game. It's summon power casts Regen on everyone, so if you love to use Regen then Kirin saves you the trouble by casting it on everyone for you. You know what? Kirin looks like a beautiful, exotic unicorn on your low resolution TV. That's been my image of Kirin - until I got into SNES emulation. >_< As you can see in the crystal clear emulation screen shot, he has a really long and ugly neck. Eck. Kirin, no offense, but you're one nasty looking Esper. I'll fix that up for you... (grabs a paper bag and puts it on Kirin) Much better! Click here to see picture of Kirin wearing a paper bag over his head.
Location: You get Kirin in Zozo in the World of Balance.
Level Up: Bah, none.
Spells:
Cure - 5%
Cure 2 - 1%
Regen - 3%

Antdot - 4%
Scan - 5%

Shiva
Ramblings: Shiva, the queen of ice. Her bundle of spells will make you fall back on your chair saying "holy shit balls!" She gives you Ice 2; which is quite a strong spell early on in the game. She's the first Esper to teach Osmose, the spell that gives you unlimited MP because it lets you steal it from your enemies. To put the cherry on the cake, she teaches Cure.
Location: Shiva is found in the Magitek Factory in the World of Balance.
Level Up: None.
Spells:
Ice - 10%
Ice 2 - 5%
Rasp - 4%

Osmose - 4%
Cure - 3%

Ifrit
Ramblings: Ifrit is a nice Esper to have around if you want to learn some fire spells quickly or use a summon attack that scorches the battlefield. There are two things about Ifrit that no other Esper has, he's the only Esper with the nifty Drain spell and he's the only Esper that actually has frames of animation. Look at him go! Twirl, Ifrit! Twirl!!
Location: You find Ifrit in the Magitek Factory in the World of Balance.
Level Up: Strength goes up by 1!
Spells:
Fire - 10%
Fire 2 - 5%
Drain - 1%

Carbunkl
Ramblings: Isn't Carbunkl so cute?! Until I played FF8, the low resolution of the TV caused me to think Carbunkl was some kind of weird lookin insect/reptile type of thing. Carbunkl also has a pretty good bundle of spells. It teaches Safe and Shell faster than Unicorn.
Location: Carbunkl is one of the several Espers that you obtain in the Magitek Factory.
Level Up: Bah, none.
Spells:
Rflect - 5%
Haste - 3%
Shell - 2%

Back to top
Safe - 2%
Warp - 2%

Shoat
Ramblings: The only thing Shoat is good for is teaching you Bio. You can consider Bio to be "Poison 2". Bio is one of my most favorite spells! It sounds like a bunch of honking cars. Bio is deadly against enemies who are weak against poison attacks. Break and Doom are random, single target spells so don't expect them to give you the unstoppable power of a God. All that Shoat's summon power does is cast Break on everyone (yay). If you look closely at Shoat you can see that he has a long neck, like butt-ugly Kirin.
Location: Shoat is one of the several Espers that you obtain in the Magitek Factory.
Level Up: Max HP goes up by 10%!
Spells:
Bio - 8%
Break - 5%
Doom - 3%

Phantom
Ramblings: I love Phantom! His summon power casts Vanish on everyone. He teaches you Vanish as well. Unfortunately, the effects of invisibility wear off when a spell is cast upon you. Feh, Bserk and Demi are useless.
Location: Phantom is one of the several Espers that you obtain in the Magitek Factory.
Level Up: Max MP goes up by 10%!
Spells:
Bserk - 3%
Vanish - 3%
Demi - 5%

Unicorn
Ramblings: Unicorn has its uses. He's nice to have around when you fight against one of those monsters who like to cast poison spells on everyone. Until you gain Alexandr, Unicorn is the only Esper who teaches you Dispel. Dispel cancels the effects of spells like Haste, Slow, Stop, and Float. As for Safe and Shell, you're better off with Carbunkl since he teaches them both at 2%.
Location: Unicorn is one of the several Espers that you obtain in the Magitek Factory.
Level Up: Bah, none.
Spells:
Cure 2 - 4%
Remedy - 3%
Dispel - 2%

Safe - 1%
Shell - 1%

Madiun
Ramblings: Madiun is so awesome! He conveniently teaches you attack spells of every element, which are quite powerful for most of the game. On top of that, Madiun's summon attack is non-elemental so it can easily pierce through any enemy's elemental defenses. He also has a secret... he's related to one of the main characters - but I won't tell you who! Ha!
Location: Maduin is found in the Magitek Factory in the World of Balance.
Level Up: Magic Power goes up by 1!
Spells:
Fire 2 - 3%
Ice 2 - 3%
Bolt 2 - 3%

Bismark
Ramblings: Bismark sucks!! He's a useless slutty whore! All he does is hit on other Espers as if they're a piece of meat. It's always you, Bismark! YOU!! What about their feelings, huh?! I can't believe you. Get out of my house! You are no longer welcome here! Slutty Esper whores are neva welcome in ma house! Click here to see a picture of Bismark as an unbelievably slutty whore. Anyway, as I've just said, Bismark sucks. You gain him when low-level spells are useless, and low-level spells are all he teaches. Plus his summon attack is the most sexual; his water breaks and then he swims through it with an orgasmic moan, leaving behind fart bubbles.
Location: Bismark is one of the several Espers that you obtain in the Magitek Factory.
Level Up: Bah, none.
Spells:
Fire - 20%
Ice - 20%

Bolt - 20%
Life - 2%

Sraphim
Ramblings: I love Sraphim! She's teaches you all the useful white magic spells that the World of Balance has to offer! What a lady!! And best of all, you learn all these spells quite fast. Yes, indeed. However, her summon isn't too useful. All she does is cure everyone with as much as Cure 2 would.
Location: You can buy in Tzen from a man in the trees (in the World of Balance or the World
of Ruin). This man is kind of hidden. You need to go all the way to the upper right of the town, right beside the building.
Level Up: Bah, none.
Spells:
Life - 5%
Cure 2 - 8%
Cure - 20%

Regen - 10%

Golem
Ramblings: Golem RULES! His summon blocks off all psychical attacks! Golem is especially useful in Final Fantasy Tactics.
Location: Golem can be bought at the Auction House in either world.
Level Up: Stamina goes up by 2!
Spells:
Safe - 5%
Stop - 5%
Cure 2 - 5%

Back to top

Zoneseek
Ramblings: If you've already taught everyone Rasp and Osmose from Shiva then Zoneseek won't be too useful. He's only good to have around if you like using Shell, because Zoneseek's summon casts Shell on everyone. Shell is a surprisingly useful spell, many times it cuts magic damage in half. Doesn't Zoneseek look kinda creepy? I wonder what its origin is. Maybe it was alien than turned into a dead, zone-seeking body after a freak accident. I wonder if that freak accident was having a threesome with... Monica Lewinsky and Linda Tripp! Lol, maybe so.
Location: Zoneseek can be bought at the Auction House in either world.
Level Up: Magic Power goes up by 2!
Spells:
Rasp - 20%
Osmose - 15%
Shell - 5%

Odin
Ramblings: The only other Esper who teaches Meteor is Crusader - and getting Crusader is a bitch! So having Odin in your possession in fortunate if you desire Meteor. When you're done with Odin you can "convert" him to Raiden for another cool spell.
Location: Odin can be found in the Ancient Castle in the World of Ruin.
Level Up: Speed goes up by 1!
Spells:
Meteor - 1%

Back to top

Raiden
Ramblings: Raiden is the only Esper who teaches Quick, the spell that gives you two turns in a row after you cast it. Bah! That's dumb. I think you're better off casting Haste 2. I say keep Odin and say NO to Raiden! I am anti-Raiden! DOWN WITH RAIDEN!! Down with his false ideals and treachery! Vote for Odin! Odin deserves the presidency - not that crabby old good-for-nothing Raiden! Odin is pushing for less taxes while Raiden wants to increase them. Is that what you want? More taxes!? Bah! Vote for Odin!! Odin will give you what you want! Odin for president!!
Location: No location. Odin changes to Raiden.
Level Up: Strength goes up by 2!
Spells:
Quick - 1%

Fenrir
Ramblings: There's only one thing that makes Fenrir useful and that one thing is X-Zone. Yes, X-Zone. The almighty spell that banishes monsters into the abyss of nothingness. I'd say X-Zone has a 2/3 success rate so it does carry out its purpose most of the time. Fenrir's summon is useless, he just casts sleep on all the baddies.
Location: You find Fenrir when you defeat Phunbaba in the World of Ruin.
Level Up: Max MP goes up by 30%!
Spells:
Warp - 10%
X-Zone - 5%
Stop - 3%

Palidor
Ramblings: Palidor! Palidor is my pal, he's such a fun Esper to use. He's awesome to use when you get bored of using the same old attacks in the random battles. Palidor sweeps down onto the battlefield and picks everyone up. Then each one of your characters falls down one by one as if they executed a Jump command. Palidor also packs a nice bundle of super fun spells, you learn most of them pretty fast too! If you love to use Haste then you can look forward to learning Haste 2, which casts Haste on everyone at once.
Location: You find Palidor on the beach of the Solitary Island in the World of Ruin.
Level Up: Max MP goes up by 10%!
Spells:
Haste - 20%
Slow - 20%
Haste 2 - 2%

Slow 2 - 2%
Float - 5%

Terrato
Ramblings: I love Terrato! He teaches you Quake!! All you need to do is cast Float on everyone and you'll be completely immune to Quake's almighty power. You can get Terrato early on in the World of Ruin. I don't like Quartr cause its a random spell and I don't like W Wind either cause it also damages your party.
Location: You fine Terrato in the skull at the end of Umaro's cave in Narshe (in the World of Ruin).
Level Up: Max HP goes up by 30%!
Spells:
Quake- 3%
Quartr- 1%
W Wind- 1%

Starlet
Ramblings: Starlet is exactly like Sraphim, the only difference is that Starlet teaches her spells a little faster and she has Cure 3 instead of Life. If you've already taught everyone Sraphim's spells then Starlet wouldn't be of much use to you. You're better off teaching everyone Cure 3 with the Phoenix Esper. And Starlet's summon isn't all that great either, all she does is cure everyone. You're better off casting Cure 3. Despite all that, Starlet is surely one of the most beautiful Espers! She rests on several blankets and has one of those golden imitation sunlight thingys behind her head.
Location: You find Starlet hidden in a bookshelf within Owzer's house in the World of Ruin. Owzer tells you which bookshelf she's in cause he wants to get rid of her, he thinks she's bad luck.
Level Up: Stamina goes up by 2!
Spells:
Cure - 25%
Cure 2 - 16%
Cure 3 - 1%

Regen - 20%
Remedy - 20%

Tritoch
Ramblings: Tritoch is one of my most favorite Espers! It's the only Esper that teaches Ice 3 and Bolt 3 AND it has one of the coolest Summon attacks! Unfortunately, if an enemy is strong or even immune to any of the three elements, then Tritoch's attack would not have much of an effect. Look at Tritoch, isn't it beautiful? So many pretty colors. I wish Tritoch would teach its spells a little faster - 1% takes forever!
Location: You find Tritoch in the hills of Narshe in the World of Ruin.
Level Up: Magic Power goes up by 2!
Spells:
Fire 3 - 1%
Ice 3 - 1%
Bolt 3 - 1%

Phoenix
Ramblings: You're going to love Phoenix! Phoenix is the Esper that packs the best bundle of spells!! He's the only Esper that teaches two of the most useful spells in the game:Life 2 and Life 3. Life 2 instantly revives a character with full HP and Life 3 automatically revives a character when they fall. Phoenix teaches you Fire 3 at a whopping 3% while Tritoch teaches it at a mere 1% (you suck, Tritoch!). You receive Phoenix after you witness a touching scene between Locke and a past love. Look at Phoenix's neck, it appears that he can bend his head backwards.
Location: You find Phoenix after completing the Phoenix Cave.
Level Up: Bah, none.
Spells:
Life - 10%
Life 2 - 2%
Life 3 - 1%

Cure 3 - 2%
Fire 3 - 3%

Alexandr
Ramblings: Alexander is most my favorite Esper!! He rises up from the ground and scorches the battlefield with a massive Pearl explosion! I pissed in my pants when I watched his summon attack for the first time. I still piss in my pants experiencing Alexander in future Final Fantasys. Shell, Safe and Remedy are also nifty.
Location: Alexander is found in the throne room in Doma Castle right after you enter Cyan's soul (in the World of Ruin).
Level Up: Bah, none.
Spells:
Pearl - 2%
Shell - 10%
Safe - 10%

Dispel - 10%
Remedy - 15%

Ragnarok
Ramblings: Ragnarok teaches Ultima, the most powerful attack magic spell in the game!! However, Ragnarok's summon is completely useless. All it does is randomly turn enemies into common items. Yipee.
Location: You find Ragnarok in Narshe in the World of Ruin. You need Locke to open up Narshe's Weapons shop. Inside you'll find an old man who asks you if you want the sword or the rock. Choose the rock (which is the Esper).
Level Up: Bah, none.
Spells:
Ultima - 1%

Back to top

Bahamut
Ramblings: Bahamut, the king of the dragons! He's definitely one of the coolest Espers. He flies onto the battlefield and blasts away the enemy with his mighty breath. Bahamut is so cool that he was even given his own game, Bahamut Lagoon. And you know what? Bahamut's name sounds like "Baha, mut!" as if someone is laughing at a dog.
Location: Bahamut is your reward if you manage to defeat Doom Gaze in the World of Ruin. Heh, it almost seems like Doom Gaze laid a turd.
Level Up: Max HP goes up by 50%! Stupendous!
Spells:
Flare - 2%

Back to top

Crusader
Ramblings: Crusader is the weirdest, yet most interesting Esper. It's the only Esper that actually attacks YOU along with the enemy. And its the only Esper that's made up of three... um... I want to say people, but one is a demon so... let's say three warriors. And he's the last Esper you're going to get since the last dragon is in Kefta's tower. I wonder what the origin of this Esper is. It looks like three warriors who are cursed to be locked in battle for all eternity. Merton and Meteor are quite powerful spells! Merton is the most powerful fire spell and Meteor is probably the most coolest-looking spell in the game.
Location: You are automatically awarded Crusader when you defeat the 8 dragons in the World of Ruin.
Level Up: Max MP goes up by 50%! Fabulous!
Spells:
Merton - 1%
Meteor - 10%
