Behemoths are large beasts that appear in many Final Fantasy games. Behemoths are powerful enemies that are usually encountered in the last area, and are one of the strongest in each of their appearances. A Behemoth sometimes appears as a boss. A Behemoth first appears as a boss in Final Fantasy II and as an enemy in Final Fantasy III.

In many of their appearances, a Behemoth is a large, purple beast that uses its horns and lightning magic to kill its opponents. Depending on the game, Behemoths are either quadrupedal or bipedal; if a Behemoth is the latter, it often carries a weapon with it. In most cases, if a party member uses a magic spell on a Behemoth, it strikes back with a powerful spell such as Flare or Meteor. Behemoths have an even stronger counterpart named King Behemoth.

Behemoths are named after the beast mentioned in Job 40:15–24 of the Holy Bible.


Final Fantasy series[edit]

Final Fantasy II[edit]

The Behemoth first makes its debut in Final Fantasy II as both a random encounter and a boss at the Coliseum.

Final Fantasy Mystic Quest[edit]

In Final Fantasy Mystic Quest, Benjamin fights a Behemoth on the Hill of Destiny. Contrary to its other appearances, Behemoth is the first boss, let alone enemy, to be fought.

Final Fantasy XVI[edit]

In Final Fantasy XVI, a Behemoth is fought as a boss at Drake's Spine. A stronger version called the Behemoth King is fought as a Class S Notorious Mark.

In Mario Sports Mix, Behemoth is the first boss. Its stronger variant, Behemoth King, also appears as a boss, and he can be fought by clearing Star Cup in Sports Mix mode.

Behemoth can be fought if the player's team wins against the Final Fantasy team (consisting of Ninja, White Mage, and, if the matches played are in 3-on-3 mode, Black Mage) at all sports, an extra challenge is given in which the characters must face off against Behemoth.

During the battle, players and their teammates must work together to fully deplete Behemoth's health. They are each given a life meter, which depletes if any of them get hit by Behemoth's attacks. To fight Behemoth, players use their various skills from all the sports, while having access to an energy weapon that is shaped like a Hockey stick, along with the ? Panels. The ? Panels either contain a meteor (which is used like a Basketball, Volleyball, and Dodgeball), a Coin (used to strengthen the player's attacks), a Green Shell, or a Bob-omb. These items have to be used directly on Behemoth to affect it.

Additionally, when the Special Shot meter bar is full, the player can have their team perform a special move that is unique to this fight to inflict some decent damage to Behemoth.

Behemoth does feature some various attacks that the player must watch out for. If players stay too close to Behemoth, they may risk getting attacked by its claws and/or tail. Behemoth may also do a body slam, or charge right into players. Players can be clued to when Behemoth will start charging when it roars. It can also release fireballs, lightning bolts, and meteors at the player as well. Players can stop most of Behemoth's attacks by damaging it.

If any players have their health fully depleted, they are knocked out temporarily, but as long as at least one player still has some health remaining, they can recover and rejoin the fight again with a small portion of their health recovered.

When players and their team fully deplete Behemoth's health, it gets knocked out and vanishes, which gives the player an extra mode for winning: Sports Mix mode.
