    Tongue If I can beat you, why would I need your powers? Loser...

    This is a thread about our wonderful summon friends. Even if the party is strong enough to wipe the floor with them we still appreciate the help they give.

    Who is your favorite version of the classic summons:

    Chocobo
    Ramuh
    Shiva
    Ifrit
    Titan :P
    Leviathan
    Odin
    Bahamut

    Whose your favorite non-classic summon?

    Whose your favorite one time summon? (i.e. only appeared in one title)

    Who is your favorite Ultimate summon? (Crusader, KotR, Eden, Ark, Magus Sisters, Zodiark...)

    Which game did you enjoy the summons the most in?

    Favorite Version of classic summon

    Really any of them from IX, but only because I like the graphical upgrades from the snes titles, and I wasn't really fond of most off FF VII's graphics. Though Bahamut was pretty rad in VII, so I'll give that one to him.

    As far as non classic, Alexander has, and always will, kick royal ass.

    And one time goes to FF VII's Bahamut Zero. Gigantatic intersteller sivler dragon? Yes please.

    And I refuse to answer all of yoru questions, just to spite you.

    It's gotta be Bahamut and Odin for me, Leviathan gets a notable mention because he's always usually the "underdog" of the summons, he's good but he's just not quite "there" yet.

    Yay, summons and the pretties they bring!

    My favorite Chocobo is the choco/mog from VII. It was just so cute.
    VI's Ramuh, less for his use in battle and more for the character... I love his sprite, sitting there with that most excellent beard.
    Shiva from X, because of that amazing character design. The hair! The pretty blue-ness! And especially the animation of her dropping her shawl.
    Ifrit from V, I love the attack he dishes out. Hot stuff.
    IV's Leviathan, for his position in the world of summons. That is one of my favorite battles, timing the wave is fun.
    VII's Odin. "I dont wanna fight this random battle." *summon Odin* Yay!
    IV's Bahamut, cause he just kicked so much ass. I loved the flare, and fighting him was a pain in the arse, especially if you dont go the reflect route.

    Slyph (IV)! Mostly useless, but pretty!

    Imp (IV), because again it was useless, but finding it for the first time was amazing. I was still young and this was a while before faqs.

    Magus Sisters (X), because of the IV reference. No really, that's the only reason.

    I really liked X's version because of the control aspect and the Aeon staying for more than one turn. I really don't use summons much, save to see their animations. I'm impatient.

    Whose your favorite non-classic summon?
    Odin, although he wasn't in the first two games, I guess that's of no consequences since only Bahamut appeared in FFI and Leviathan in FFII. But yeah, he was always my favorite to find, from getting him at the Shinra mansion, the King in FFIV, the crazy ass underground passage of Galuf's castle in FFV, the weird ass temple in FFVIII.

    Whose your favorite one time summon? (i.e. only appeared in one title)
    GILGAMESH!!!!

    Who is your favorite Ultimate summon? (Crusader, KotR, Eden, Ark, Magus Sisters, Zodiark...)
    KotR, just for how insane it was at the time.

    Which game did you enjoy the summons the most in?
    Final Fantasy VII, the animations and battle direction was just so over the top.

    Gilgamesh is in both FF VI (The remake) and VIII, so he's not a one time summon.

    I loved being able to control the Aeons in FFX. Plus they were so pretty. FFXII, too. The only problem was FFX's summons were overpowered, and FFXII's were useless (though I hear that's not the case with Revenant Wings).

    Who is your favorite version of the classic summons:
    Chocobo: FFVII. Moogle + Chocobo and Fat Chocobo together. Total win.
    Ramuh: No real preference.
    Shiva: FFVIII, without a doubt.
    Ifrit: FFIX.
    Titan :P
    Leviathan: FFVIII
    Odin: FFVIII
    Bahamut: FFVII, any of the incarnations in that game.

    Whose your favorite non-classic summon?
    Mateus, the Corrupt.

    Whose your favorite one time summon? (i.e. only appeared in one title)
    Quetzacoatl. I don't count the appearance in Revenant Wings.

    Who is your favorite Ultimate summon? (Crusader, KotR, Eden, Ark, Magus Sisters, Zodiark...)
    Knights of the Round, though I really dislike the final blow, the rest of it is just awesome.

    Which game did you enjoy the summons the most in?
    Hard to say.
    My friend Delzethin is currently running a GoFundMe account to pay for some extended medical troubles he's had. He's had chronic issues and lifetime troubles that have really crippled his career opportunities, and he's trying to get enough funding to get back to a stable medical situation. If you like his content, please support his GoFundMe, or even just contribute to his Patreon.

    He can really use a hand with this, and any support you can offer is appreciated.
