All Eikons in Final Fantasy 16

Eikons are back and bigger than ever in this game!

One of the fundamental aspects of the Final Fantasy franchise that influences both gameplay and lore is the inclusion of special magical entities, which wield incredible elemental powers and adhere to the stability of the game’s natural world. While they’ve been called many names, in Final Fantasy 16 they’re referred to as Eikons, and just like in other games the player has the ability to summon them. If you’re wondering just how many Eikons there are to be found in FF16, we’ve put together a handy list of all of them for you to make note of in your adventures.

Every Known Eikon in FF16, Their Elements & Dominants

Eikons are also known as Summons in the massive game of Final Fantasy 16, which can transform into giant creatures to assist players in battle and give them unique abilities. Those able to use Eikons are known as Dominants. Each Eikon has a unique element, and is associated with one specific Dominant.

There are 10 known Eikons found in the game, and they include:

Phoenix

  • Element: Light
  • Dominant: Dion Lesage
  • Known Abilities & Perks For Battle: Bahamut is one of the most iconic Eikons synonymous with the franchise, this time in its prominent dragon-shaped form. It wields the element of light, and Clive can learn these special moves for it:
    • Megaflare – A bright, explosive blast that significantly damages enemies.
    • Dia – A basic light-elemental attack
    • Wings of Light – Does damage to all enemies in the vicinity.
    • Flare Breath – A dragon breath-like attack that will deal damage to all enemies in a line.
    • Satellite – Another powerful AoE light attack.

Titan Lost

  • Dominant: Unknown
  • Known Abilities & Perks For Battle: Unknown

Typhon

  • Element: Unknown
  • Dominant: Unknown
  • Known Abilities & Perks For Battle: Unknown

The last two Eikons on the list are unique encounters in the game shown in previous showcases that may or may not allow Clive to harness their powers.

Titan Lost, presumably an alternate form of Titan, has been shown fighting Ifrit at some point in the story, and may be even more powerful than the Titan wielded by Hugo. That is, if his gargantuan size is anything to go by, visibly dwarfing Ifrit by a long shot.

Typhon, on the other hand, looks quite different from other versions in the franchise, and is shown as a boss battle opposite Clive. In his ghastly form he appears to wield some kind of dark magic.

As to how exactly these two Eikons contribute to the storyline, and to whether or not either of them are usable, isn’t entirely clear yet. Of course we’ll update as more progress is made.

That concludes our guide of every Eikon found in Final Fantasy 16. Let us know what you think of the game so far, and which of the Eikons is your favorite of the bunch.
