View Full Version : Amano Pic Familiars

If you look at the amano pictures of each character, you can see (in each one) a little guy called a familiar that are similar to the character that they are nearby. This site said that they may help with limit breaks, but I havent seen any....

The ’Familiar’ info on the frontsite is a little out of date. Yoshitaka Amano’s concept character designs included Familiars, but they were never a part of the final designs. Pity, really. They seemed like an original, innovative concept… but maybe they were considered too ‘dark’ because of their similarity to voodoo poppets.
However, Eiko’s faithful companion, Mog, is pretty similar to her Familiar….

I don't think they were ever meant to be incorporated into the game; that was just a hypothesis cooked up by fans when they saw the artwork well before the game had been released.

That makes sense, since technically, there are no limit breaks for the familiars to 'help out' with. Instead they used trance.
