From Final Fantasy 3 to Final Fantasy 4[edit]

Summons were introduced in the previous title of the series, Final Fantasy 3. There were eight of them: five could be purhcased as soon as the Evoker/Summoner job is unlocked, the last three could be obtained by defeating the summon. The same scheme is repeated here in Final Fantasy 4.

Eight Summons from Final Fantasy 3:

  • Chocobo (start)
  • Shiva (start)
  • Ramuh (start)
  • Ifrit (start)
  • Titan (start)
  • Odin (fight)
  • Leviathan (fight)
  • Bahamut (fight)

Three new summons were introduced in the original version of Final Fantasy 4:

  • Mist Dragon (start)
  • Sylph (event)
  • Asura (fight)

Further four summons were introduced in the GBA and subsequent remakes of Final Fantasy 4:

  • Goblin
  • Bomb
  • Cockatrice
  • Mindflayer
