The lights are on
Summoned monsters provide some of the most memorable moments in the Final Fantasy series. All fans remember the first time they saw Bahamut use megaflare, or watched the Knights of the Round take their turns dealing damage. Some of these monsters and their signature attacks have grown into iconic parts of the franchise...but this list focuses on those who have faded away into obscurity. Maybe their special moves just went unused, or maybe they looked lame and had stupid effects. Whatever the explanation, these are top five summons that players are likely to forget.
Asura (Final Fantasy IV)
Remora (Final Fantasy V)
Cactuar (Final Fantasy VIII)
Madeen (Final Fantasy IX)
All of them (Final Fantasy XIII)
