Adamantoise are a species of tortoises that appear in several Final Fantasy games. They first appear in Final Fantasy II. Adamantoises have appeared in varying sizes throughout their appearances. Several Adamantoises are enemies, but some appear as a boss. They have a thick shell armor, often made of Adamantite, that give them high defense capabilities. Adamantoises are mainly found in cave areas. In many games, Adamantoise is weak to ice-elemental attacks.

The name "Adamantoise" name is a portmanteau of the words "tortoise" and "adamant", referring to the resistant material composing its shell.

In Final Fantasy IV, Adamantoises are only encountered as enemies in the Antlion's Den. They are vulnerable to ice-elemental attacks. The bestiary classifies Adamantoise's type as being "Insect" despite it, and by extension tortoises, being reptiles. In the Super Nintendo and PlayStation versions, it is simply named Turtle.

Final Fantasy V[edit]

In Final Fantasy V, there is only one Adamantoise, and it is fought as a boss inside of the Tycoon Meteorite. There, the party is confronted by the Adamantoise after they take the Adamantite. The exit is blocked off, forcing the party to fight the Adamantoise. Once they defeat it, they can leave with their newly obtained Adamantite. In the Final Fantasy Anthology version, it is named Adamantaim.
