Astos is the king of the Dark Elves and a boss in Final Fantasy.


Final Fantasy[edit]

The warriors are confronted by Astos in the iOS version

Prior to the events of Final Fantasy, Astos cursed the Elf Prince into an eternal slumber and stole all of the Elven Castle's treasure. He also stole Matoya's Crystal Eye to make her blind so that she could not make a potion to cure the Elf Prince.

Years later, the Warriors of Light go to the Western Keep and find the Lone King,[1] who is actually Astos in disguise. The king asks the warriors to find his Crown to restore the ruined castle. When the Warriors of Light return with the Crown, Astos reveals his true form, and they start to battle. The Warriors of Light manage to defeat Astos and obtain the Crystal Eye, which they can return to Matoya, who then makes the Jolt Tonic for the warriors to awaken the Elf Prince.

In remakes starting with Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls, Astos's ghost is encountered and battled the Whisperwind Cove.

Other appearances[edit]

Captain N: The Game Master[edit]

Astos is the main antagonist of the Captain N: The Game Master episode "The Fractured Fantasy of Captain N". Astos's role in the episode is similar to the first Final Fantasy; he stole the Light Crystal from a witch, so the heroes go on an adventure to retrieve it. Like the game, Astos is disguised at first before his true form is revealed, although he takes on the form of a green man rather than a king. Astos's main goal is conquering the prince's kingdom.
