Gladio – Final Fantasy XV
Final Fantasy XV’s band of protagonists are all quite different. Whether it’s a unique personality trait that comes through in the dialogue, or their strengths and weaknesses that make them fit a particular role in combat there’s plenty to learn about each of them.
Gladio, aka Gladiolus Amicitia, is the tank of your party. He wields Greatswords as his primary weapon and can equip shields as a secondary. From the beginning of the game, Gladio will also have the highest physical power and HP stats of your team and as such you should ensure he’s at the forefront of your attacks. His abilities, such as Dawnhammer and Tempest, largely focus around dealing out heavy physical damage and when used correctly can be devastating in battle.
Gladiolus’ official character description from the Final Fantasy XV site reads as follows:
“The Amicitia family has long served as the shield protecting the kings of Lucis and their household, and Gladiolus is its eldest son. The bond he shares with Noctis transcends that of a bodyguard and his liege. With his prodigious strength, he stands ever ready to keep his companions from harm.”
