    I seriously love this site. I knew Doomtrain would make it on the list. It really is weird. I just wonder why FF 8's Odin was left out =\. FF 9's Bahamut just screams PWNAGE =) P.S. VIII is the best =) recaptcha: smokey journalists

    this article looks like it was rushed... why not even add some of the summon from FFXI and the pictures of the summons from FFXII were just horrible...

    woah i didnt know that you could summon anima in ffx, i always thought that seymor was the only one who could. and i still havent found out how to get the sisters. i think they both have something to do with that magical door i still havent been able to figure out how to open in that temple in the calm lands and then theres that underwater temple where you can go back and fight that underwater boss again.

    Once again, you fail at research, GamesRadar. Most of these summons are included in Final Fantasy Tactics, and it made me facepalm at how ignorant this article is. Shame on you, guys. Shame on you.

    You missed some Odin. In FF7 there was a different animation for his instant death move. Grunge Lance only occured if the instant death was sure to not work. He also appeared in 8 but came by at random without being summoned.

    Also, you missed the strange summon Arc. He's the last summon in Final Fantasy 9 and plays tribute to Alexander(since he died). He's a flying ship that transforms into a mech and uses all Alexander's moves.

    Most memorable summon to me was Eden from FFVIII. Her animation is 2 minutes long and unskippable!

    Where are the Brothers? And what about the Choco/Mog and catuar summons? they were weird and all of them appeared in only one game. ReCAPTCHA: pocomoke late ... I don't know what to say about that.

    how do you watch the videos? i'm having a hard time watching them so someone tell me how to.........
  • ZukotaIsoba - March 7, 2010 6:41 a.m.

    @darkknight03 Must be your computer; they sometimes have difficulty loading. @Yaro I agree; eight is the best.
  • linkganon - March 7, 2010 7:06 a.m.

    The attack the Knights do on final fantasy 7 summon appears to be like 3 minutes of a long string attack, but i don't know if that is a string or not, is it?
  • linkganon - March 7, 2010 7:09 a.m.

    sorry for double posting, but forgot to mention, the videos for a certain ds game had bad sound, and one of the videos on page 2 does not seem to work.
  • Mirako - March 7, 2010 7:34 a.m.

    Why the hell is Bahamut a Transformer in XIII? Do all of the summons do that now? It looks ridiculous!
  • EnragedTortoise1 - March 7, 2010 4:25 p.m.

    the wheels on Bahamut go round and round...
  • Conman93 - March 7, 2010 6:58 p.m.

    Great article! I almost felt sorry for the monster getting attacked by the knights! Anima is freaky but still awesome! Doomtrain...posssible inspiration for spirit tracks!

    What, no Crisis Core? Those summons were great!
  • pin316 - March 8, 2010 3:31 p.m.

    is it just me who during reading this realised just how awesome the summons were in ffX? Both the regular ones (Ifrit in particular was badass), and the crazy new ones (Anima, Yojimbo, Magus Sisters all pretty wicked). Just wish they had gone with Ramuh instead of the skeletor-wannabee unicorn Ixion...
  • pin316 - March 8, 2010 4:51 p.m.

    @reveffect yeah man, by far the two best summons in the game. forget details as it's been ages, but Anima is at some random temple you find once you have the airship....think it's the underwater one you mentioned as you have to fight the underwater boss before you can get it. there's also something you have to have done at the other temples as well. Magus Sisters are bad-ass. something to do with that optional fight where you have to fight crazy versions of all your own aeons, and also the monster arena. Defo remember this - if you get Magus Sisters and get them to overdrive, Delta Attack was insanely powerful! Oh, other awesome thing about 10 - the whoel linking of aeon max damage exceeded when you get ultimate weapons for characters - that was a nice bonus when it happened

    cool article and I can't wait to see how awesome the summons in FFXIII will be
