Are summons in Final Fantasy 16?

Some forces require a powerful weapon.

The Final Fantasy series is known for its interesting worlds, stories, and characters. Players often face world-ending threats or deadly evils, which is true of Final Fantasy XVI. One of the best abilities players have are summons. This may leave you wondering if there are summons in Final Fantasy XVI.

Does Final Fantasy XVI have summons?

The answer is yes—Final Fantasy XVI does have summons; however, they do not go by this name in-game. Instead, they are called Eikons. Summoning an Eikon will initiate a massive battle, especially against other Eikons. Players cannot directly control the Eikon; instead, it involves QTE attacks that unleash devastating attacks.

Eikons work differently narratively in Final Fantasy XVI as well. Before, players could use summons in other Final Fantasy games as they wished. In Final Fantasy XVI, using an Eikon drains life from the user, reducing their life span. Using a summon to call forth an Eikon cannot be done as freely.

Players control Clive, who will gain many Eikons throughout the story. These powerful weapons can turn the tide of battle but will cost Clive some of his life. Each Eikon represents an element and features deadly attacks making them an ultimate but costly weapon.
