     Shared Tropes 
  • Ambiguously Human: There are indeed Primal Beasts who have humanoid forms of varying sizes, some of which end up being Promoted to Playable.
  • Ambiguous Situation: In "Primal Resonance", Nezha explains that Primal Beasts have characteristics that may outright contradict the ways mortals perceive them, which may lead into Ambiguous Relationships, Vague Age up to Ambiguous Gender Identity or being Otherworldly and Sexually Ambiguous.
    But concepts like family, siblings, appearance, sex – ideas that mortals are so keen to define – are often contradictory when it comes to the myriad types of primal beasts.
  • Clap Your Hands If You Believe: Zooey mentions that Primal Beasts are born from the people's desires or wishes. And as explained in Shiva's episode, some of them can use prayers to power themselves.
  • Demoted to Extra: Zeus, Odin, Satan, and other summons are major players or characters in Rage of Bahamut and its adaptations but don't have much focus in Granblue Fantasy beyond being raid bosses.
  • Disappears into Light: In-story, the beasts disappear in this manner when they are defeated.
  • Foreshadowing: The vampires in "Fall of the Dragon" believe that Primal Beasts used to exist in legends and that their sudden physical appearance were merely a possibility. Chapter 118 reveals that all Primal Beasts in some way are actually just the legends and heroes of yore forcibly incarnated by the Astrals.
  • Gentle Giant: They May be huge monsters, but this is their default state when someone isn't specifically going out of their way to make them go berserk. Even Leviathan, an Expy of one of the most consistently vicious summons in Final Fantasy, spends most of his time saving sailors from drowning and giving them generous hauls for their fishing nets.
  • Healing Factor: As explained by Loki in "Ranger Sign Bravo!", Primal Beasts have the ability to automatically regenerate themselves to a certain degree. "What Makes The Sky Blue III: 000" demonstrates that weaponized chaos matter can slow down, or completely nullify a Primal Beast's regeneration, effectively killing them from a fatal blow.
  • Living Weapon: Primal Beasts were created and/or altered to be weapons of the Astrals during the War.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: Primals generally have no will beyond fulfilling the mission given to them by their Astral creators, and become antagonistic because someone, usually the Empire, has done something to agitate or reactivate them.
  • Olympus Mons: You can obtain most of them as summons, allowing you to use them in combat.
  • Physical God: Most Primal Beasts are revered as deities by anyone living in close proximity to them and their powers give them near absolute control over certain aspects of reality.
  • Satellite Character: Besides the primal beasts that show up in the main story or are part of an event and those that have been Promoted to Playable, not many of them have retained that much importance in the grand scheme of things.
  • Sizeshifter: If Yggdrasil, Sandalphon in “What Makes The Sky Blue” and the size of the summon stone versions of primals are to be believed, primals are able to grow to very large sizes and are capable shrinking down to normal human sizes.
  • Vague Age: Primal Beasts can live up to hundreds of years, which makes the physical appearance of those who are Ambiguously Human surprising for their actual age.

Main Story Primal Beasts

Covers primal beasts that appear in the story in order of introduction.

     Bahamut 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/600px_bahamut.png
Bahamut
Proto Bahamut 
Ultimate Bahamut 

A primal beast residing over Zinkenstill. Lyria borrowed its power when they were cornered by the empire in the beginning of the story. He is called the Omnipotent in the creation myths recorded in Etemenanki. Described by his Speaker, Helel ben Sahar, as a being from another dimension, he created the new world with some similiarity to the previous world he was in. After the creation, Bahamut split into to two halves, one half as the Sky God, the other as the Astral God. For ages both halves fought proxy wars with each other in an attempt to reunite with the other.


  • Ambiguous Situation: It's left unclear exactly what Bahamut is despite being defined as a primal beast, with its nature suggesting it existed before Astrals ever appeared in the Skydoms and began creating the primal beasts prototypes, the primarchs.
  • Badass Armfold: Proto Bahamut has his hands tied up but still ends up looking like this.
  • Badass Baritone: While it isn't actually voiced, its appearance as "the Great One" in "What Makes the Sky Blue" notes in narration that with every breath it takes, its gravitas and divinity compel obedience.
  • Bonus Boss: Two raid versions of Bahamut are found in Zinkenstill, and is one of the hardest bosses to beat. An Ultimate version can be fought in Bestia Island.
  • The Bus Came Back: The real Bahamut to be exact, as the Proto Bahamut accompanying Lyria is only a copy. After Bahamut's appearances make him sidelined to merely an apparition and a shadowy figure when Vyrn recovers his powers in the first arc, Vyrn gets face-to-face with Bahamut in Chapter 126 in the little dragon's dream-like state.
  • Conspicuous CG: Like in Rage of Bahamut: Genesis, it's depicted solely in CG in the anime.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Obliterates the hydra released by Pommern with relative ease.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: It's a huge black dragon with power over the worlds creation and destruction, but is otherwise benevolent.
  • Dragons Are Divine: Is obviously a dragon and considered as one of the most powerful Primal Beasts.
  • Expy: Of Final Fantasy's Bahamut, complete with its own equivalent to Final Fantasy's Bahamut's Megaflare in the form of Skyfall.
  • Famed in Story: The Astrals and the Primarchs are aware that Bahamut is the Top God in the realm of Granblue to the point that Etemenanki even has murals of him, and that Helel ben Sahar/Lucio calls him the Omnipotent.
  • Gold and White Are Divine: When Ultimate Bahamut is fought in the Impossible version of its raid, it eventually shows its true power by taking on this coloration, a stark contrast to every other version of itself in the game.
  • Instant Runes: Proto Bahamut's Impossible version has the Reginleiv Recidive skill which summons three magic circles in front before it fires an all-elemental laser beam.
  • Kill the God: The trophy reward for clearing the Impossible version of the Proto Bahamut raid is titled "God Slayer".
  • Mythology Gag:
    • One of Ultimate Bahamut's skills is named "The Rage". This can also be considered as a subtle Title Drop given that he first appeared in Rage of Bahamut.
    • Etemenanki contains murals depicting Bahamut, which are similar to how the Rage of Bahamut: Genesis anime also shows Bahamut murals before each episode's endcards.
  • No-Sell: Proto Bahamut does not even flinch from the attack of Pommern's Hydra. Players can still damage Bahamut in-game like any other raid boss.
  • Power Limiter: Proto Bahamut looks like it has its hands tied up and is blindfolded. They come off when it reveals its true power.
  • Razor Wings: Some of Bahamut's normal attacks involve swiping its wings at a character.
  • Signature Move: Skyfall, its most infamous attack from its raid boss version which hits for 9,999,999 in dark damage to all characters.
  • Top God: It's the top god, being the Primal Beast capable of reshaping reality at its whim and with the power to back it up. Not even supreme primarch Lucifer outranks it. He's even called the Omnipotent by Lucio and the murals in Etemenanki.

     Tiamat 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/600px_tiamat.png
Tiamat
Tiamat Omega

     Colossus

Colossus
Colossus Omega 

     Leviathan 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/600px_leviathan.png
Leviathan
Leviathan Omega 

A massive serpent that lives in the vast ocean of Auguste, where it is viewed as a benevolent deity and protector. Leviathan has immense healing powers that keep its ocean clean, and the people living near it healthy.


  • Adaptational Early Appearance: In the game, no one has seen Leviathan yet until the final chapter of the Auguste Isles because it was slowly commanding the waves. It made its appearance way earlier than that in the anime
  • Attack Reflector: The Omega form has this, as well as the charge attacks of the weapons derived from it.
  • Benevolent Monsters: Leviathan keeps the ocean in Auguste Isles clean, along with providing a good harvest to its citizens. It is also implied that Leviathan helped a stranded and unconscious young Apollo to return to the shoreline and be found by Eugen.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In Agastia, Freesia imbues it with Malice to fight against the crew.
  • Call-Back: In the anime, Leviathan is immobilized by Yggdrasil and its fish swarm's leader is killed by Eugen. Both of which are Earth-elemental characters. Leviathan is weak to the Earth element in-game.
  • Combination Attack: "Die Drachenkanone" with Eugen.
  • Conspicuous CG: Like Bahamut, it is clearly 3D-modeled in the anime.
  • Dual Boss: With Mithra under Freesia's command, and again with Tiamat in Bestia Island.
  • Expy: It's a direct lift of the recurring summon Leviathan from Final Fantasy, complete with its most powerful attack being a massive tidal wave.
  • Hell Is That Noise: When you get his Impossible version to 10% health, the music suddenly stops and changes into a very unnerving Jaws-esque tune. This is your cue to defeat him quickly before he uses Perilous Tidefall.
  • Kill It with Water: Blasts or drowns its enemies with surging sea waves.
  • Shielded Core Boss: In the 12th episode of the anime, Leviathan is protected by flying swarms of fish that surround it, and the only way to scatter them is to find and kill the swarm's "commander" fish. It is taken into another level when the said commander is actually floating on a separate barrier of fish swarm, making this a case of two shielded cores at once.
  • Snakes Are Sinister: Subverted. Leviathan is outright benevolent and friendly with the mortals living near it, and is worshiped and well loved in return.
  • Tortured Monster: When the Empire begins polluting its ocean, Leviathan's powers go into overdrive trying to heal and cleanse the damage, which in turn drives it to eat literally everything that enters the water to sustain itself.

     Yggdrasil 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/600px_yggdrasil.png
Yggdrasil
Yggdrasil Omega 

     Luminiera 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/600px_luminiera.png
Luminiera
Luminiera Omega 

An insect-like primal beast that serves as the guardian spirit of the Fortress City of Albion.


  • Asskicking Equals Authority: How Luminiera decides who should become its next host. Albion stages a tournament with its soldiers as the contestants, with the winner claiming power from Luminiera and wins the right to be its current host.
  • Beehive Barrier: Its Aegis Merge is depicted as a spherical shield, which visibly shatters into shards if removed.
  • Bishounen Line: Its original form looks like an insect or fairy. The Omega version gives her a woman's body clad in armor.
  • Bond Creatures: It protects Albion by bonding with the Lord Commander and imbuing them with its power. However it apparently doesn't even have to bond to a person as it bonds with the Adversa cannon after Vira, its former host, was defeated. Vira's SSR fate episode reveals that during the battle with Adversa, Lyria changed its commands so that Luminiera's bond does not extend to being bound in Albion. This allows the host that Luminiera bonds with to move freely. This also led to Vira being bonded to Luminiera once more without the former restrictions in the same fate episode.
  • Dub Name Change: Known as Chevalier in Japanese.
  • Fusion Dance: With its current host, Vira. The latter's Dark SSR version has a skill that grants an incomplete fusion, while the Grand version of Vira is the result of a perfect fusion.
  • Gratuitous French: Her original name in Japanese, Chevalier, is French for "knight".
  • Hard Light: Having power over light, it can make weapons out of it, demonstrated by its summon attack, Blades of Light where it forms several swords of light and fires them on the enemy.
  • Hidden Eyes: Its eyes are covered by the visor of its helmet.
  • Light 'em Up: Anything it fuses with gains the ability to project rays of damaging white light.
  • Meaningful Name: Her English name having Lumi derived from the Latin word "lumen" which refers to light.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Her Omega form has four arms.
  • Promoted to Playable: A variation. The Grand version of Vira merges completely with Luminiera. She fights with the same attacks and skills as Luminiera, becomes light element, and even changes her weapon specialty and race to axe and primal, respectively. However, she still counts as Vira and cannot be played with any other version of her.
  • Stance System: Its Omega form has one. It uses Aegis Merge to buffs its defenses drastically and give itself health regeneration. Debuffing any part of this causes it to use Aegis Unmerge, which drops all the defense buffs for raw power. Once it hits 50% HP, it stays in Unmerge for the rest of the fight.
  • Status-Buff Dispel: Its Blades of Light ability also removes all status buffs on the party members who survive the initial damage of the attack.
  • Stone Wall: Infamous for its Aegis Merge ability, which stacks a ton of 90% damage cuts, a Refresh buff that heals itself up to 65,000 HP per turn, and very high Debuff Resistance. Dispelling any one of them causes it to remove them the next turn. Its Impossible version has a localized version, Aegis Merge Dividio, which combines all of the defensive buffs into one easily dispelled buff.
  • Storm of Blades: Its Blades of Light ability is basically one, with swords made out of light raining from the sky.
  • The Unfought: Its Adversa form anyway, in the anime, due to it never leaving Vira's side.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: Her Omega form, alongside Celeste Omega, is one of the more difficult pre-Impossible tier Omega raids in the game, with her Aegis Merge granting her a shitload of defensive buffs that need to be dispelled, and her Blades of Light attack being very likely to instantly kill whoever it hits, and removing all the buffs of whoever somehow survives.

     Celeste 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/celeste_9.png
Celeste
Celeste Omega 

A primal beast appearing as a ghastly, spectral airship surrounded by purple fog and illuminated by ghostly red lights. Celeste has control over death, allowing it to resurrect the dead and forcibly prevent death from occurring.


  • Animate Dead: Sort of. It steals death itself, making people incapable of dying. Living creatures who are supposed to die one way or another turn into zombies as a result.
  • Bishōnen Line: Its original form is a ragged airship while the Omega version of Celeste is a gigantic woman (who is also an airship). The full uncap artwork for Celeste Omega goes one step further as she directly faces the player with a slight smile instead of Celeste Omega's original artwork which depicts her frowning and ominously looming from above.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: The Valentine picture for Celeste's original form has the patches that serve as its "eyes" in the shape of hearts instead of the usual nondescript tears they usually are.
  • Fog of Doom: Most of its charge attacks are fog-based, both in name and in appearance. It has also covered the island in mists which prevented the crew from escaping upon landing there.
  • Ghost Ship: Clearly evident in its base form, Celeste is a ghastly spectral airship which later on reveals a humanoid body and the ability to emit fog in its Omega version.
  • Gradual Grinder: It uses status effects, debuffs and heals to slowly wear down your party. The Omega form takes it up a notch by adding Putrefy and Blind to the list.
  • Hidden Eyes: Its eyes are covered by a veil.
  • Ironic Name: Celeste means sky blue in Spanish. It's as dark and dreary as it gets. However, see also Shout-Out.
  • Make Them Rot: Apart from inflicting zombify and healing the party, Celeste Omega also occasionally inflicts Putrefy.
  • Nothing Is Scarier: Her Impossible raid invoke this. After her HP drops to a point, she engulfs everything with fog and there is nothing but fog. She does emerge again when her HP drops to another point, though.
  • No Ontological Inertia: When Celeste is defeated and sealed, death returns to the island and all the villagers crumble to dust. Justified in that they were all supposed to have decayed for a long time.
  • Revive Kills Zombie: Attempts to use this against your party by inflicting Zombie status, then spamming heals.
  • Shout-Out: It's named after Mary Celeste, a ship that mysteriously became abandoned on route to Genoa.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: Her Omega form, alongside Luminiera Omega, is one of the more difficult pre-Impossible tier Omega raids in the game, with her gimmick being to repeatedly torment your party with loads of annoying status effects and debuffs, and abuse the hell out of Revive Kills Zombie by zombifying your team and spamming heals.

     Noa 

Voiced by: Kaito Ishikawa

A primal beast of shipwrights and shipbuilding.

     Mithra 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/600px_mithra.png

A primal beast that governs contracts and promises, residing within the trading city of Golonzo.


  • Benevolent Genie: It may be obsessed with making sure contracts are honoured to the letter, but it's still a primal beast, and still a force for good under normal circumstances, so it mostly does it by lending contractors some of its power so their promises become easier to fulfil.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In Agastia, Freesia imbues it with Malice to fight against the crew, and later to use its powers to force a contract to fulfill her goals.
  • Dual Boss: With Leviathan under Freesia's command. Fortunately, it doesn't heal back to full health in those matches.
  • Gradual Grinder: Mithra debuffs the party every other turn, while buffing itself simultaneously. It then relies on its regular attacks to whittle the party down. It does have a party-wide ability that deals more damage with more buffs/debuffs on both teams. However, these only happen during special health triggers, making them unreliable.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Interestingly, it's the only one of its kind with a Showdown that's set up like a regular raid but is considered solo content. That is, you are treated to fighting the boss immediately just like a normal raidnote , but you are unable to call for help and make use of Strike Time.
  • Magically Binding Contract: Mithra's power forces any promise or contract made within its domain to be carried out to the letter, regardless of situation or laws of reality.
    • This becomes a problem during the Golonzo Island arc when the Grandcypher is incapable of leaving the island until Rackam fulfills his promise.
    • During one of the side quests, it even manages to turn the dead back into a ghost just so it could fulfill her promise.
    • Freesia uses Mithra Malice to force a contract upon her wish to Retcon the Astrals, making her essentially immortal until she uses Akasha to do so.
    • During Noa's final uncap, he exploits this fact to help the party, making them promise so that the Grandcypher can fly again until they reach Estalucia.
  • Mechanical Lifeform: It's mainly made up of shifting gears.
  • Ominous Visual Glitch: Mithra's "Defrag" ability causes visual distortions and screen tearing on the game interface, before dealing damage to the entire party.
  • Stone Wall: It has a fairly high health on top of being able to return to full health once when its HP drops to 50%.
  • The Unfought: In the Golonzo arc of the anime, where Noa Malice takes its place instead.

     Fenrir 
A primal beast that was discarded as a failure after being experimented on repeatedly. She was saved by Loki, Erste's first emperor.

     Rose Queen 

Voiced by: Rie Tanaka

Spoilers 

A primal beast of plants, roses and thorns. She reveals herself during the second visit of Lumacie Archipelago, forcing everyone out of the islands with her thorns, until the crew can come back to defeat her in their third visit. Her character originates from Rage of Bahamut. For tropes regarding Rosetta, see the Granblue Fantasy Story Characters page.


  • Attack Reflector: Her Rose phase can occasionally set up a Repel buff.
  • Flower Motifs: Roses.
  • Fusion Dance: Was in danger of being merged with Yggdrasil Malice and being infected as a result, which is why she asks the crew to defeat her.
  • Green Thumb: Has power over plants, mainly roses.
  • No-Sell: Her thorns can take hits from the empire's entire weapon arsenal, preventing them from landing in Lumacie Archipelago. Her summon can also grant this effect to the players on occasion.
  • Something About a Rose: Naturally, being the Rose Queen.

     Deus Ex Machina 
A primal beast gifted to the Erste Kingdom before the war. Deus Ex Machina has the ability to extract and transpose souls. Ten years ago, Freesia attempted to unseal it with Dark Essence, resulting in the tragedy that killed the king and queen and turned Orchis into her current state.
  • The Ghost: The crew fights a reactor powered by it and Lyria absorbs it, but it's never actually seen.
  • Soul Power: It can move souls around, however, it can't destroy or create new souls. Apollonia's misconception of this fact led to her despairing over Orchis' death for years..
  • Soul-Powered Engine: Freesia puts it into one of these with the intent of using it to convert all of Agastia into power in order to force-activate Akasha.

     Akasha 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/note_018.png

A powerful primal beast created by the Astrals in the final stage of the War. Although it posses the ability to distort and interfere with history, the Astrals were unable to fully control it, preventing its implementation in warfare. Any tampering with the past is sure to affect the present, so when activating Akasha's powers, one must accept the possible risk of erasing themselves from all history.


  • Bonus Boss: As of December 2018, it has an Impossible raid version, accessed from its original story boss location.
  • Climax Boss: While Akasha's defeat does not mark the end of the game, it is the conclusion of the Erste Empire storyline which was built up over a few dozen chapters.
  • Eldritch Abomination: It's a giant angel-whale-looking thing with a book embedded in its body. Later, it evolves into an angel-like form carrying a feminine form in its arm and a masculine form holding it from behind all on top of a monster whale.
  • Interface Screw: Its raid version always has the Time Warp field effect active, causing 1-3 battle turns to progress per turn.
  • Mind Control: Does this temporarily to Lyria when it first activates.
  • Rewriting Reality: Its main power is being able to rewrite history, both the past and the future. This essentially means that it can erase anything out of existence in its weaponized form. It can also be used to Retcon an event, such as when the crew uses it to prevent Freesia from making a promise with Mithra in the first place. This makes it the only known power that can break Mithra's Magically Binding Contract.
  • Tailor-Made Prison: To keep Akasha from being used under the wrong hands, Orchid volunteered to seal Akasha within a golem, the Automata Lloyd who also serves to help her to fight.

     Kikuri 
A primal beast that resides in the Dydroit belt and connects the islands.
  • Chekhov's Skill: Its hold over bonds was later used by Zeyen to help find the primal beast closest to Rackam and Eugen so they can win against the Luminiary Knights.
  • Cosmic Plaything: Kikuri has the power to control fate to a degree and also the connections people had with each other. Hence making its victims its plaything.
  • He Was Right There All Along: Throughout the arc, Lyria keeps sensing his presence at times when the crew are experiencing particularly close bonds. She eventually realizes that this is because Kikuri is pretty much the embodiment of these bonds, allowing the crew to manifest it so they can stop its rampage.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: This is the primary symptom of Kikuri severing someone's fated bonds. They forget about the people closest to them and the experiences they had. That said, it isn't perfect and those afflicted can sometimes remember certain details like Katalina remembering that she made a promise to someone, but not who she made it to or what exactly it was.

     Dykotomus 

A primal beast that resides in the Silverwind Stretch, North Vast.


  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Not just itself, but implied to have caused the monsters in Silverwind Stretch to grow much bigger than usual.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: Appears to be a large bug.
  • Bonus Boss: It served as the final boss of the Proud+ mode of the February 2019 Proving Grounds event.
  • Forced into Evil: Possible. Lyria senses that something or someone is forcing it to fight the crew and give away a map piece against its will. At the end of the chapter, it's implied that it's Loki's doing.

     Bai Ze 

A primal beast that serves Idelva as her majesty's advisor.

     Antikythera 
The monk Zeyen's Primal Beast who made a pact with him upon reaching enlightenment in Kluger Island.

See Zeyen's entry in the Granblue Fantasy Allies page.

     Echidna 

Voiced by: Haruna Ikezawa

The primal beast of motherhood, who rules over the haven of Bestia Island.

     Ganesha 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ganesha_npc.png
Overseer of Prosperity

The primal beast that serves as Rhem Empire's guardian.


  • Honorable Elephant: Normally he's this.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: He's Ganesha, so of course he has four arms.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Gilbert's coup in the Rhem Empire somehow caused it to become unstable and dangerous, and only Rhem's king could pacify it.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom Ganesha's frantic self-defense against the Otherworldly beings in the third arc also caused a mind control effect wherein the Rhem soldiers are easily agitated to fight against outsiders.

     Ebisu 

The primal beast who swims between the boundaries of the Blue Sky and the Crimson Horizon.


  • Distaff Counterpart: Sort of. Ebisu is the primal beast that swims in the boundaries between the Crimson Horizon and the Skyworld. It has a counterpart in Ca Ong, which swims in the boundaries between the Skyworld and the Astral world. How they are related is still unknown.
  • Genius Loci: The entire Edgelands lies on its back.
  • Name's the Same: In-universe. The fishing boat and summon also named Ebisu found in the event, "Balmy Breeze and Foamy Deep", has nothing to do with the primal beast.
  • Narnia Time: People who have fallen from the Skyworld onto the beast's back all have come from a different time from each other, and they all also arrived at the Edgelands at a different time. For instance, Shitori and Mika have lived there for a fairly long time despite having fallen around the same time as the crew. Likewise, in their perspective, the MC's dad had just left shortly prior to the crew's arrival, even though they came from a timeline where he had already arrived at Estalucia.

     Ares 

Voiced by: Miyuki Sawashiro

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ares_npc.png
The fourth primal beast of Nalhegrande who disappeared even before the Divine Retribution incident caused by the Great Wall. Ares was introduced in the third main story arc, having been trapped in the Otherworld for a long time.
  • Ambiguously Bi: She married and had a child with a human man, but her relationship with her adjutant, Albion, who had unambiguous romantic feelings towards Ares, seems to have been more than just a friendship.
  • Contralto of Danger: As she is fully-armored like in the case of the Black Knight. Ares speaks in a deep, mellow voice.
  • Deity of Human Origin: Ares was originally an Astral like Mika who came into the Sky Realm. Then for reasons still unknown, she notes that her body had transformed and taken on the properties of a primal beast's.
  • Disappears into Light: She finally finds her peace together with Alby and fades away into light after passing her powers on to Katalina.
  • Identical Grandson: She looks exactly like Katalina, who is heavily implied to be her descendant.
  • Late-Arrival Spoiler: The Closed Beta Test build of Granblue Fantasy Versus reveals that Ares is bound to Katalina, assisting in her Super Skybound Art. This was way before Ares is officially introduced in the mobile game's main story.
  • Living MacGuffin: The protagonist crew in the Sky Realm needs to find the fourth Sky Map piece from Ares, the fourth primal beast of Nalhegrande in order to continue their quest. Once thought to have disappeared forever, Ares is actually sealed in the Otherworld.
  • Not Quite Dead: Mikaboshi thought that the fourth primal beast of Nalhegrande is no more, until she herself got taken to the Otherworld and saw Ares with her own eyes. Zeyen is convinced that Ares' disappearance was caused by the protagonist captain's father.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Her name and backstory take cues from Greek Mythology. In the Nalhegrande Skydom, Ares is remembered to be the primal beast that governs conflict and war.
  • The Stoic: Her speech mannerisms are mellow and deep that she doesn't seem to display any emotions in all her dialogue.
  • Trailers Always Spoil: Ares is the armored knight revealed in the third arc's trailer. As the camera pans farther to reveal her full body appearance, she bears a resemblance to Katalina's armor.

Showdown Primals

The primals that are fought in the Showdown quests. They also have Xeno versions, which appear as events that are run once a year, and feature the very powerful Xeno Weapons.

    Ifrit 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/granblue_ifrit.png

The Showdown primal of fire. Defeating his Xeno version lets you craft the True Infernal Flamescythe and the Wrathfire Longblade.


  • Bishōnen Line: Xeno Ifrit is noticeably much more humanoid in appearance than his original counterpart.
  • One-Hit Kill: Soulfire Immolation deals massive damage to a party member, and if they survive, it inflicts a debuff of the same name which will kill them after 5 turns if it isn't cleansed.
  • The Unintelligible: Ifrit's voice is so distorted, it's very difficult to make out what he says. Averted with Xeno Ifrit, whose voice is still distorted, but speaks more clearly.

    Cocytus 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/granblue_cocytus.png

The Showdown primal of water. Defeating his Xeno version lets you craft the True Glacial Dreamstaff, and the harp, Dante Alighieri.


  • Dual Boss: Downplayed. Xeno Cocytus also comes with Durante, which serves to buff him, but its health is very low, and it kills itself once you reach a certain percentage of its health.
  • Shout-Out: He is basically a direct homage to The Divine Comedy, with all of his attacks taken from the poem.
  • The Unintelligible: Like Ifrit, his original version's voice is so distorted, it's very difficult to make out what he's saying.

    Vohu Manah 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/granblue_vohu_manah.png

The Showdown primal of earth. She acts as a judge of lost souls, bringing down her judgment onto them. Defeating her Xeno version lets you craft the Last Sahrivar sword, and the True Judgment Lyre.


  • Contralto of Danger: Xeno Vohu Manah speaks in a deep yet gentle tone, in contrast to her original self, whose voice sounds rather robotic.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Her eyes are perpetually closed, which make her look like she's sleeping.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: Xeno Vohu Manah is a huge step-up from her original counterpart, with the tome she wields and the platform she stands on becoming separate targets with their own triggers. Xeno Vohu Manah herself packs some nasty debuffs such as Sleep, Confusion, and Death (ally dies after 3 turns), and has Mirror Image and Refresh buffs to make damaging her quite frustrating.

Primarchs

The rank given to the highest of archangels. Lucifer serves as the Supreme Primarch and rules over all angels. His role, powers and memories are later inherited by Sandalphon.

There are four primarchs that control the four tetra-elements are responsible for natural order. They are listed in the order they were introduced in "What Makes The Sky Blue", and are named after the four archangels from The Bible namely Raphael, Michael, Gabriel and Uriel.

Three more primarchs appear in "What Makes The Sky Blue II: Paradise Lost", two acting as messengers for Lucifer and third being the light legacy of their creator Lucilius. A dark legacy named Avatar was also created but only acts as a form of pure power.

More primarchs were introduced in "What Makes The Sky Blue III: 000", including the two archangels of instruction Azrael and Israfel, along with a skilled, yet emotionless Sariel. All three of which became Fallen Angels.

     Shared Tropes 

  • A Day In The Lime Light: The Primarchs are focal characters in the “What Makes The Sky Blue” trilogy and they also serve as their introductions.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Though currently unclear for angels like the original tetra-element Primarchs note , Metatron who has yet to interact with anyone outside of the protagonists, as well as Azrael and Israfel- Lucifer, Halluel, Sariel and Sandalphon are notably heavily implied to have romantic feelings for members of the same sex while not being shown to take an interest in anyone of the opposite sex as of yet. note  It’s most blatant with Lucifer and Sandalphon, to the point where they come off as Star-Crossed Lovers with only their interest in each other in mind.
  • Angelic Beauty: A majority of them are attractive, regardless of gender.
  • Bonus Boss:
    • The four element primarchs require the protagonist to forge their weapons in order to fight them one-on-one; fighting them in raids requires them to have beaten them on the highest difficulty as well as a corresponding sidequest.
    • Metatron is an optional fight to get unique variations of Gacha summons or a sunlight stone after completing the main story in "Paradise Lost". He appears again before the Capatin on Kluger Island in further response to the machinations that have begun with Lucifer's passing which unlocks his raid.
  • Badass Crew: Similarly his Rage of Bahamut counterpart note , Lucifer has a team of 4 powerful angels of whom he commands as they keep the peace and order in the world. He is the most powerful one and governs over evolution.
  • Bequeathed Power: Lucifer gives Sandalphon the powers of the Surpreme Primarch before passing on. The Primarchs willingly give their wings to Sandalphon in "000" both to empower him to take on Belial and as part of Lucifer's initiative to cede their authorities to let nature take its course.
  • Biblical Motifs: A huge motif for the Primarchs and those associated with them such as Lucio and Lucilius stemming Lucifer’s original summon call which serves as a Shout-Out to the epic poem of the same name by John Milton.
  • Broken Angel: Most of them get their wings ripped off by others:
    • Raphael, Michael, Uriel, and Gabriel lose their wings and powers thanks to Sandalphon. Though they later re-grow them back at the end of the event.
    • Lucifer gets beheaded and his wings ripped as a part of Beelzebub's and Belial's plans in the sequel.
    • Azrael and Israfel getting horribly disfigured, stitched together and their heads tied in a sack.
    • Belial steals a pair of Sariel's wings just to have the power of Avatar for himself.
  • Celestial Paragons and Archangels: What their roles technically serve as.
  • Cosmic Keystone:
    • The absence of the Supreme Primarch threatens the world's safety as the Origin Beasts can become agitated, with the possibilities of destroying inhabited islands in the process. It happens at the start of "What Makes The Sky Blue II: Paradise Lost" when Lucifer is killed. This caused the other fourth Primarchs to come down and enlist the help of the singularity. Fortunately, there is a backup – the fifth Primarch Sandalphon whom Lucifer kept in a Seraphim Cradle, with Lyria holding the plume that can awaken him from slumber.
    • Should ever the four primarchs wielding the tetra-elements be defeated in the "grand finale", their powers will also cease to operate. However, Lucifer has an insurance that makes the tetra-element powers be ceded to nature to maintain the natural order even if one of the four is killed. By "The Maydays", the four primarchs and the twin pairs of archangels have already ceded their roles to nature so that they could simply live with the mortals.
  • Council of Angels: They were grouped according to function. Those who are loyal to the Supreme Primarch were given the task of overseeing evolution. As of "What Makes The Sky Blue III: 000", Lucilius and Belial oversaw the group of fallen angels, with the latter being assigned as Deputy Head of Research.
  • The Dreaded: Lower creatures and monsters are afraid of a primarch's aura and tend to stop in fear when they encounter them. So far, this has been demonstrated in two scenarios:
    • In "The Maydays", Lucio calms a rampaging Old Bruce for a while when he emanated a glimpse of his aura.
    • In Europa's summer episode, a monster tries to charge straight at the beach house, but since Gabriel is in the building, it turned back from its course and attacked the nearby captain and Europa instead.
  • Dub Name Change: From simply “Angels“ in Japanese to “Primarchs” in English. In Japanese, Lucifer and Sandalphon eventually are referred to as the “Chief Angel” as opposed to the “Supreme Primarch”. “Archangel” and “Primarch” tend to be used interchangeably and in some translated text, the Primarchs are simply referred to as “angels”. However, the term Fallen Angel is always used consistently to the fallen “Primarchs”.
  • Fallen Angel: While they don’t necessarily align with those you’d hear about in the biblical lore due to the way Granblue Fantasy’s universe works, the ones introduced essentially work as this. So far, the only fallen Angels we’ve been formally introduced to are Azazel and Olivia, both of whom are playable, Belial, Sariel, Azrael and Israfel. Astaroth has yet to be properly introduced but she and some of the other fallen angels are shown in the Pandemonium level of Co-op.
  • Four-Element Ensemble: The four element primarchs command fire, water, earth and wind.
  • Japanese Honorifics: The Primarchs refer to Lucifer as “Lucifer-sama” when they aren’t simply referring to him as the Supreme Primarch, noting his superiority over them and their respect for him. It’s shown in the flashbacks that Sandalphon referred to him as this, as well, though dropping it after he rebelled. Post-What Makes The Sky Blue: Paradise Lost, he begins to refer to him as “Lucifer-sama” again.
  • Gender Flip: The female angels are all named after angels in mythology that are described to be male. Justified as the angels in Granblue Fantasy have very little to do with their biblical counterparts outside of being like angels.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings:
    • Friendly Primarchs usually have the typical "bird" angel wings, with varying colors to distinguish them from the other characters. The Supreme Primarch also has three pairs of white, resembling a Biblical seraph's. On the other hand, Sandalphon gains 12 wings at the end of the trilogy - his default brown pair, the Supreme Primarch's, and individual multi-colored wings from the tetra-elemental primarchs.
    • The twin pairs of archangels have bird wings with opposing colors yellow and blue (Halluel and Malluel), and violet and orange (Azrael and Izrafel).
    • To signify their status as Broken Angels, the deformed state of Azrael and Israfel in "What Makes the Sky Blue III: 000" has bone wings.
    • Fallen Angels usually have feathered wings. Two of them (Azazel and Sariel) have jet black wings, while Olivia's are unique, being mixed shades of gold and purple. Lucilius also gains 12 black feathered wings during the third arc, opposing Sandalphon's.
    • Avatar and Belial (after absorbing the former's powers) have black bat wings accented with a shade of red. Likewise, Avatar and Metatron have three pairs of wings to signify their higher ranking than the tetra-elemental primarchs and pairs of twin angels.
  • Healing Factor: Primarchs have the ability to regenerate parts of their bodies and as well as their wings when they’re injured.
  • Light 'em Up: Halluel, Lucifer, Malluel, and Metatron are light primarchs. Lucifer himself oversees the fifth element that is split into Light and Dark.
  • Leotard of Power: All the female Primarchs shown so far wear leotards. Olivia is an exception but she’s a Fallen Angel, so it could be Justified.
  • Mooks:
    • The Angel/Archangel Cores, known as lesser Archangels, are this for Lucifer as they only answer to him as the Supreme Primarch. Due to Sandalphon being created as a spare for Lucifer, he can also summon and command them as well.
    • Fallen Angel variants of the Angel Cores likewise exist, dubbed Exia. They appear in Versus under Beelzebub's control.
  • Our Angels Are Different:
    • They typically fit the normal trend of Winged Humanoid, but the four and Metatron spend their time typically without physical form. Raphael is the most distinct as his body unravels in his strongest form. While the angels also have a form of hierarchy and organization, being a Fallen Angel is pretty much like how it is depicted in mythology and religion, with the difference that the angel was recruited to a secret coup-de-etat faction by Belial (like in Sariel's case), or worse, experimented and forcibly turned into (like in Azrael and Israfel's case). The narration may also interchange the terms "fallen angel" and "origin beast", which are actually synonymous.
    • Lesser primarchs rarely have humanoid forms, with the Angel Halos, the most common Primarch, being floating wings and halos surrounding their cores, followed by the more human and baby-like Archangels and Watchers, gaining more humanoid traits the higher up the hierarchy they are. Primarch weapons also existed but were no more than tools of slaughter, as the four faced Cherubim shows in "000".
  • Power Gives You Wings: Their power is directly tied to their wings. When they lose their wings due to an outside force, they lose most control over the elements. Also inverted that those who steal the wings can acquire new powers, albeit for a limited time.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Their names are taken from the pre-existing Angels of Abrahamic religions. There are also outlying examples of Dub Name Change in the cases of Halluel and Malluel (from Harut and Marut) and Avatar (whose appearance is based on one of Satan's forms from Rage of Bahamut), yet they are still derived from Abrahamic characters.
  • Reused Character Design: Interestingly averted with everyone except Lucifer and Avatar. While there did exist characters that shared names with Tetra-element primarchs in Rage of Bahamut where Lucifer and Avatar (Formerly named “Satan” though that name had long since been taken by another primal in Granblue by the time Avatar made it into the game) originated, they had very little association with either of these characters, likely the reason why they didn’t make their appearance alongside Lucifer upon his formal re-introduction in “What Makes The Sky Blue”. Names aside, the tetra-element Primarchs are design wise and role wise Granblue original characters.
  • She's Got Legs: Appears to be a running theme for the Primarchs, including the male ones, to have shapely, prominent legs.
  • Super Prototype: Primarchs are the original Primal Beasts created by the Astral researcher Lucilius. Their natures are more fundamental for the world and help keep it functioning compared to future ones who served more specific duties. Their power likewise is greater, and later Primal Beasts were created weaker to make them easier to control as most of the Primarchs rebelled.
  • Training from Hell: The fights against the four are this; after acquiring their respective weapons, they appear to the protagonist in a dream and battle them in order to ensure that the protagonist can wield them properly.
  • Turns Red: The four become much harder fights once their health starts running out.
  • Tron Lines: Michael's armor, Uriel's veins, Raphael's unravelled body, and Gabriel's leotard all take on these traits as a cue for the second phase of their fight.
  • The Worf Effect: Interestingly for extremely powerful prototype primals, they get taken down by Sandalphon fairly easily who steals their wings. Rosetta justifies this by saying that despite their power, they lack defense.
  • Undying Loyalty: The Primarchs to Lucifer. Michael even says he’s irreplacable as their Supreme Primach after his death, but grows to accept Sandalphon as his successor when he proves himself.

Summon Version 
Summon 5★ Uncap 

Originated from Rage of Bahamut.

One of the very first primal beasts ever created, he is known as the supreme primarch who commands all other archangels. His purpose is to oversee and guide evolution within the skydoms. His appearance is said to be the spitting image of the Astral researcher who created him.

Originally a summon, he becomes an important supporting character in the What Makes The Sky Blue events as they detail his importance to Sandalphon and the other Primarchs.


  • Adaptation Species Change: He is a demon and the leader of the fallen angels in Rage of Bahamut. Here, he is a primal beast and the one who rules over skies and the primarchs... It was confirmed by Word of God that he was conceived to be Granblue’s version of Arch Seraph Lucifer from RoB, making this trope apply to him. Potentially Played With as the original Lucifer from Rage of Bahamut was an Arch Angel before he had fallen. In the original Japanese text, the Primarchs are referred to as Angels. Lucifer is referred to as the “Chief Angel”, mirroring the original Lucifer’s status as the Arch Seraph.
  • A Day In The Lime Light: While the events mostly focus on Sandalphon, he ends up getting some development as well as they detail his role and his importance to the latter.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Is very emotionally fixated on Sandalphon, calling him “my eternal peace”. He doesn’t seem to take a romantic interest in anyone outside of Sandalphon that we’ve seen, so it’s very likely he’s either this or Single-Target Sexuality with only Sandalphon in mind.
  • And I Must Scream: Could be in this scenario depending on how you view his fate at the end of What Makes The Sky Blue: 000. He’s trapped in the afterlife, away from the contact of any other person for presumably an eternity until Sandalphon dies and rejoins him...IF Sandalphon even dies, given that Primarchs are immortal. It’s currently unknown, however, if this will stick for him.
  • Art Evolution: The art progression from his original summon art to his 5★ uncap art is stunning.
  • Badass in Distress: Paradise Lost begins with Lucifer getting ambushed in Canaan. The event is put into motion because the four primarchs fear something has happened to Lucifer to cause ether to go out of balance and primal beasts of light and dark to begin rampaging across the skies. Much of the event focuses on the crew's efforts to reach Canaan and save Lucifer. They don't make it in time.
  • Barrier Maiden: Used himself as the seal for the Avatar. His continued existence was the only thing stopping the Avatar from breaking out of Canaan and bringing the world to ruin. When Beelzebub kills Lucifer, the Avatar breaks free from its seal and begins rampaging immediately.
    • It's also revealed that Lucifer's power kept Pandemonium sealed and prevented the imprisoned origin beasts from escaping. Unlike with the Avatar, the seal remains intact because he was able to pass on his power to Sandalphon.
  • Benevolent Boss: To the other Primarchs and Sandalphon. Sandalphon notes that Lucifer was loved and respected by everyone as well, though that didn’t stop Sandalphon from turning against him in the past. This extends to the fallen angels as revealed in 000, as rather than simply killing them for their traitorous acts, he acknowledged that they were tricked into rebelling and simply sealed them away instead.
  • Backup from Otherworld: Appears in playable Sandalphon's “Paradise Lost” charge attack after the latter's White Wing buff is consumed. Their voices even overlap upon shouting the ability.
  • Beam Spam: His signature attack "Paradise Lost" is this.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Is easily one of the gentlest primarchs, but he was also implied to have enough power to destroy the world and is ruthless towards enemies of the skies. Not only did he cut down his own creator without hesitation, the Ghost Memory Sandalphon sees shows that he relentlessly pursued Beelzebub and imprisoned every fallen angel who worked for Lucilius. However, if his reaction to any of this is any indication, he didn't like it one bit.
  • Big Good: He is tasked with being the divine protector the skies and even kills his creator in order to do so. Even in death, he thinks of his duty. “What Makes The Sky Blue: Paradise Lost” implies that he wasn’t originally created with this purpose, as his original purpose was to govern over evolution with the tetra-element Primarchs assisting him in doing so though after a “disagreement” with his creator that resulted in their death, he took it upon himself to become a largely unknown protector of the sky realm, sealing away Lucilius’ legacy before it can do any harm to Sky realm.
  • Bishounen: Is extremely pretty, owing his likeness to his creator, Lucilius, who similarly owes his likeness to Lucio, whose appearance is heavily implied to stem from Rage of Bahamut Lucifer’s.
  • Break Out Character: Originally was and still is one of the most popular summons in the game likely due to his usefulness as a summon, his role in the “What Makes The Sky Blue” trilogy and the fact that he’s always been a popular recurring character across all of Cygames franchises. He was popular enough to get a 4* uncap alongside Bahamut in 2017 and an ultimate 5★ uncap in 2019. Even after being killed off in What Makes The Sky Blue, there are still fans begging the creators for his return, with Word of God hinting that it just may happen in the future.
  • Cain and Abel: Being made at the same time as Belial, he could be considered his “brother”, and they essentially have this dynamic. Though ultimately, rather than being killed by Belial, Beelzebub is the one who does the deed in order to restore Lucilius.
  • Character Death: Is killed by Beelzebub and Belial in What Makes The Sky Blue: Pt 2 and becomes a driving force for Sandalphon to fulfill their promise. It’s currently unknown, however, if this will hold its weight in the future given the open ended circumstances at the end of 000.
  • Cloning Blues: Averted as he doesn’t seem to mind the fact that he was made in Lucillius’ image and once regarded Lucilius rather kindly. It’s currently unknown if he knows of Lucio’s existence though Lucio knows of his.
  • Creating Life: He created Sandalphon under Lucilius’ order but for a long time was left in the dark on what he was asked to create him for.
  • Comically Missing the Point: A few times, as he tends to take things at face value. Most notably during Sandalphon’s fate episode where he couldn’t see that Sandalphon was clearly lying about enjoying to taste of his coffee to spare his feelings and another time in a flash back in 000, where he misses Belial’s Double Entendre about boiling beasts.
  • Decomposite Character: Like Lucilius, though directly based off of the summon that was a direct incarnation of the Lucifer from Rage of Bahamut, he also covers an aspect of the original Lucifer’s lore that was split across 2 characters to further repurpose his character to better fit the world of Granblue Fantasy. He covers the role of Archseraph Lucifer, keeper of peace and protector of the realm though under a different title due to the species change. He was also afforded a new role in Granblue Fantasy alongside being the sky realms protector. Governing over the evolution of the skies. According to Word of God, this was also to help differentiate the world of Rage of Bahamut from Granblue Fantasy.
  • Determinator: Beelzebub mentions that Lucifer was more resilient than he anticipated. Belial confirms that Lucifer didn't fight back because he was more focused on protecting the cradle Sandalphon was sleeping in, but these points do imply that Lucifer endured quite a lot before Beelzebub was able to behead him.
  • Fatal Flaw: It’s implied that his self sacrificing nature is this. Exemplified as he allows himself to be killed so Sandalphon can live.
  • Fingerless Gloves: Rocks these in a similar fashion to Sandalphon’s Paradise Lost outfit.
  • Flying Weapon: Given that he and Lucio have the same abilities, due to both being based on the Lucifer character from Rage of Bahamut which translates to Lucio’s abilities in battle, it’s likely that his weapons are controlled telepathically the same way Lucio’s are.
  • Gentle Giant: Comparisons of their portraits show that he's at least a head taller than Sandalphon, even while Sandalphon is wearing heels. Note that Sandalphon himself is 174 cm, which isn't anything to scoff at. Despite towering over everyone around him, Lucifer is often described to be gentle and soft and appeared to be a very serene person outside of battle.
    • The June 2019 issue of PASH! Magazine confirmed his height to be 186cm.
  • God in Human Form: is described as an all-power, omnipotent primal beast.
  • Good Is Not Soft: He’s shown to resort to violence when necessary. He cut down Lucilius without hesitation after he revealed his plans to him and delt out his punishment to Beelzebub. Judging by his actions afterward, he doesn’t enjoy having to resort to violence, however making him come off as a sort of Martial Pacifist.
  • Green Thumb: If Sandalphon’s skill fate episode is any indication, part of his power as the Supreme Primarch is the ability to bring plants back to life just by him touching them as evidenced by the coffee plant tree revitalizing and bearing fruit after being long dead for hundreds of years after Sandalphon, now endowed with the Supreme Primarch’s power, touches it.
  • Guilt Complex: Downplayed, though it’s implied that he has some form of this. Even Sandalphon calls him out on shouldering the blame for things that aren’t his fault.
  • Hellish Pupils: Has these, though it’s difficult to see when not close up on his sprite.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Belial confirms that the reason Lucifer couldn't fight back against Beelzebub was due to his proximity to the seraphim cradle Sandalphon was sleeping in. In other words, he was either worried that using his powers would destroy the cradle or a skirmish would wind up with Sandalphon as collateral...so Lucifer let himself get killed so Sandalphon could live.
  • Hidden Depths: Thought to be The Ace by those around him, particularly the Primarchs and Sandalphon, who they’d always look to for the perfect answer and solution to anything that goes wrong in the world.It’s revealed in Sandalphons Ghost Memory scene that he doesn’t believe he’s perfect when questioned about not knowing what Sandalphon was planning or where he was during the rebellion. Due to being put on such a high pedestal, he’s revealed to have felt lonely and, due to Sandalphons lack of a purpose that kept him waiting in the garden to be called on, he took comfort in conversing with him, finding solace in their interactions in his most stressful times.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: If trusting the Obviously Evil Belial is any indication.
  • Holy Backlight: Gets this in his 5★ uncap pose.
  • Humans Are Special: Seems to hold this view after the Captain proves their strength to him in Wyverns Reverie.
  • Iconic Item: The red scarf he wears, another carry over from his Rage of Bahamut appearance, though lacking the orange glow the original had. It serves as a constant carry over for the other “Rage Of Bahamut Lucifer” clones, even appearing in Lucilius’ Astral attire despite his outfit being much different from that of Arch Seraph Lucifer’s.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: In spite of being one of the most powerful primal beasts in existence, he is also one of the most benevolent and he never went back on his duties as a protector of the Sky realm even thinking of his duties even in death.
  • Intrigued by Humanity: Part of the reason why he told the Primarchs to learn the ways of the Skyfarers. It’s revealed he wants to know the strengths of humanity before he decides to return the reigns of evolution to the world.
  • I Will Wait for You: Says he will wait for Sandalphon in the afterlife in What Makes The Sky Blue: 000.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Wields 3 Katanas like his Rage of Bahamut counterpart.
  • Legacy Character: Initially a summon, he carries on the Cygames tradition of having Lucifer appear in some way, shape or form alongside Bahamut in their games.
  • Light 'em Up: Has power over light, and utilizes it in his attack.
  • Light Is Good: Has power over light and is one of the most unambiguously benevolent primals in the franchise.
  • Lonely at the Top: Being the Supreme Primarch, he ended up being alone for quite some time. In turn, He valued Sandalphon as his companion after he created him.
  • Meaningful Name: His name translates to “bearer of light” and he’s one of the most powerful light element wielding Primals.
  • Must Have Caffeine: He’s very fond of coffee and according to Sandalphon’s fate episode, he invented the stuff and spread his discovery across the skies. He also turned Sandalphon on to liking it.
  • Mystical White Hair: Has very white hair and is one of the most powerful Primal Beasts in existence.
  • Not So Stoic: Quite clearly loses his cool before beheading Lucilius.
  • Off with His Head!: Is decapitated by Beelzebub so that they can harvest his body and use it to resurrect Lucillius. Ironically, he was killed in the same way he killed Lucillius.
  • Only Friend: For a while, he seemingly was this to Sandalphon, and it’s hinted that Sandalphon was this for him as he says Sandalphon is his solace, feeling comfort in their interactions after his battles. He’s seen feeling sad after Sandalphon rebels in his memories, knowing he can’t return to the Garden where he would would expect Sandalphon to wait for him in his time of stress.
  • Reality Warper: Similarly to Lucio, he appears to have this power, capable of summoning the crew to another world in Wyvern's reverie.
  • Sacrificial Lion: Murdered by Beelzebub with his immortal killing weapons to show the threat facing the Skydoms and kicking off Sandalphon’s character path to redemption.
  • Ship Tease: With Sandalphon to the point where they seem like Star-Crossed Lovers. He becomes The Lost Lenore for Sandalphon after his death, with Sandalphon determined to fulfill the promise he made to him. They declare their feelings for one another near the end of What Makes The Sky Blue Pt. 3 and Lucifer says he will wait for him in the afterlife.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Confesses to Sandalphon that he is and will always be his solace. He doesn’t seem to take an interest in any other character he’s seen interacting with.
  • Stepford Smiler: Implied to be, as he had to take on the role and pressures of being the all knowing Supreme Primarch with everyone expecting him to know the answer to any of their worries, all while the role of being the Supreme Primarch was a thankless job. What Makes The Sky Blue: 000 shows that, by the end of the origin beast rebellion and the fall of the fallen angels, Lucifer had been crumbling under the stress and emotional burden of it all to the point where even Gabriel noticed that he looked ill—of course, he brushed off her concerns and said that he was fine. Sandalphon feels empathy for his struggles after finding out what he must have went through all of those years.
  • The Atoner: Sees his death as atonement for being unable to protect the skies and for failing Sandalphon.
  • The Leader: Was formerly this to the other Primarchs due to his role as the Surpreme Primarch before he passed on his role to Sandalphon.
  • The Lost Lenore: He becomes this to Sandalphon after his death, though they reconcile in the afterlife after Sandalphon appears there.
  • The Unfought: Is interestingly currently one of the only Primarchs the player doesn’t do battle with. In Wyvern’s Reverie, not even then do you fight him directly but are instead standing against Proto Bahamut which he summons into battle to test your strength. According to an interview with Word of God in 2017, this was because the creators didn’t want Lucifer to be bullied too much by the players due to his status as the face of Cygames alongside Bahamut, though they claimed they would give him a raid in the future. It’s unknown given the characters current status as of the events in 2019’s “What Makes The Sky Blue: 000” if he will still receive a raid battle in the future.
  • The Omnipotent: Is described as this, being near Bahamut levels of powerful and so powerful it places him above living things.
  • Tranquil Fury: His reaction when confronting his enemies. Interestingly averted during his confrontation with Lucilius, as he makes it very clear in his voice that he’s angry, even shouting the mans name before cutting him down.
  • The Unintelligible: In both Lyria’s and Azazel’s skill fate episodes, Lucifer appears to be this, disguised in a silhouette as he speaks to them. The audience is incapable of understanding what he is saying, due to his voice sounding like heavily distorted Japanese and simply being translated into text as “...”, however both Azazel and Lyria seem to understand him.
  • Ultimate Life Form: Is one of the strongest primals in existence, with his power putting him above all living things. He is essentially a God-like figure, only second to Bahamut in terms of power.
  • Passing the Torch: Makes Sandalphon the next surpreme primarch after his death.
  • Perpetual Molt: His wings appear to be constantly molting feathers of light that disappear before they touch the ground, made most evident in the “Ain Soph Aur” MV and his summon animation. The only shown exception is after the player defeats Proto Bahamut in Wyvern’s Reverie and they wake up to find one of his feathers in hand. Lyria describes it as feeling warm like the sun and Vyrn says it’s like a jewel.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: Despite being Lucilius’ creation, he’s nothing like him in terms of personality, being benevolent and self sacrificing as opposed to Lucilius’ cold and calculating demeanor. Given the reveal that he was subconsciously made with Lucio in mind, that could possibly have translated over to his personality. However, across Lucifer and Lucio, their speech, mannerisms and how they regard others is quite different so it’s very likely that he grew to be kind and caring toward his comrades and humanity by his own will.
    • He could be this to Belial as well. 000 confirms that Lucifer and Belial were Lucilius' first creations and were created at the same time. Whereas Lucifer is a force of order and fights to uphold peace in the skies, Belial thrives on chaos. Their personalities are the exact opposite of one another as well; Lucifer is serious and takes everything at face value, kind, honorable, and remains pure even in death whereas Belial is vulgar, speaks in double entendres, and isn't afraid to back stab anyone other than Lucilius.
  • Power Echoes: Appears to constantly have an echo behind his voice when he speaks, hinting at his being a powerful being.
  • Stuffed in the Fridge: Despite being implied to play a big future role in What Makes The Sky Blue, he was promptly killed off in the sequel event Paradise Lost, with his death and the trauma it caused triggering Sandalphon’s character arc and redemption from his initial villain status. He does appear again at the end of the final arc of the trilogy, 000, when Sandalphon finds himself in what’s implied to be the afterlife, to say their goodbye’s and make amends. The Maydays, however, seems to imply that his death may not be permanent.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Appears to be a young adult, but he is in fact the first and oldest Primal beast in the game making him at least several thousand years old. His creation by Astral researcher Lucilius was what kicked off the making of primal beasts, first with the Primarchs and then the fallen angels according to 000.
  • Retcon: While not as severe as some cases, his summon stone description differs somewhat from the role he actually plays in the story. From what is shown in the “What Makes The Sky Blue” trilogy, he does not seem to serve any Greater being as the “God” of Justice he was known to serve in Rage of Bahamut known as The Arbiter does not exist in the Granblue Fantasy universe as described in his summon description, instead acting of his own will to bring peace and prosperity to the sky realm along with those who serve under him after he beheaded his creator. He is also much closer to being a God himself due to his described omnipotence and presence that puts him above all living things as the Supreme Primarch. All of this is justified as the initial description used for the character was ported over directly from the original Rage of Bahamut character, as he was initially conceived to be a collaboration summon with the game. This was long before the Primarch Lore came to be utilized in 2017. Along with that, The director also confirms that Lucifer’s role was altered somewhat to differentiate the world of GBF from RoB, with him appearing in “What Makes The Sky Blue” to explain his presence in the new setting.
    • As of April 20th, 2020, Lucifer’s summon description has been updated to match the new setting the character appears in, reflecting his role as the Supreme Primarch that governs over evolution.
  • Walking Spoiler:It’s hard to talk about him without giving away the events of the “What Makes The Sky Blue” trilogy, Sandalphon’s character, the Primarch lore and his connections to Lucio.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Belial used to be his adjutant before he rebelled. Lucifer trusted him as a comrade, and as we find out in Paradise Lost as well as 000, that was a mistake. To a lesser degree, this is also in effect between him and Lucilius. He even called Lucilius “friend” long before he was forced to kill him and even after, apparently.
  • The Worf Effect: Is the Supreme Primarch and yet was taken down by Beelzebub and Belial with immortal killing weapons. It was revealed that it was a sneak attack as he was watching over Sandalphon in his seraphim cradle. It was revealed in 000 that he didn’t retaliate due to not wanting Sandalphon to be collateral damage.

The Wind Primarch
Summon form 

The primarch of Wind. He is very intelligent, but keeps his distance from others, archangels and mortals alike.


  • Aloof Ally: He's the most aloof and silent of the primarchs, and tends to keep his distance from others.
  • Body Horror: During fights, his body becomes unraveled, which is rather off-putting. He then uses unraveled flesh to swing his weapons at foes.
  • The Medic: Raphael practices healing abilities to save other primarchs, which he uses to help Sariel and Azrael.
  • Energy Bow: The big rings over his arms serve as these. Though he uses them more like whips due to the way his body works. The Ring of Raphael contains his power, and is one of the Seraphic Weapons the player can forge.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Though his journal portrait depicts him smiling, the guy actually smiles very rarely, and his default expression is a Death Glare.
  • Stone Wall: This is his role in the Four Primarchs raid, spamming Mirror Image and Refresh buffs to make damaging him a pain in the ass.
  • Terse Talker: A man of very few words.

     Michael 

Voiced by: Kotono Mitsuishi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/michael_npc.png
The Fire Primarch
Summon form 

The primarch of Fire. Her valor goes beyond normal bravery, and her leadership qualities are second only to Lucifer. She empathizes with skydwellers, bearing an attitude of cooperation.


  • Affectionate Nickname: Gabriel refers to her as "Mika-chan". Belial also refers to her the same way, though that one is less affectionate.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: This is her role in the Four Primarchs raid, being the last phase of the raid, she goes all out on offensive attacks to destroy the raid quickly (not to mention the raid will most likely still be reeling from Gabriel's torment of debuffs and ailments).
  • Combat Pragmatist: She immediately tries to shoot Belial with Eugen's rifle the moment he becomes vulnerable.
  • Contralto of Danger: She sports quite the deep voice to match her tough and valorous nature.
  • Cool Sword: The Sword of Michael contains her power, and is one of the Seraphic Weapons the player can forge.
  • Dual Wielding: Wields a spear and a sword.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Michael may be a masculine name, but she is a woman.
  • Hair Wings: And has many in her hair.
  • It's Personal: Besides Sandalphon, she has the biggest beef with Belial, due to his reveal that she was the information pipeline he relied on to help the rebellion and his successful attempt at fleeing her wrath.
  • Mystical White Hair: Has white hair shaped like wings.
  • Not So Above It All: Despite her tough and serious nature, her response to Stan saving her life with his dragon blood in "What Makes The Sky Blue" is to squeeze him against her chest while ruffling his hair. Needless to say, Aliza is NOT amused when she sees this. She's also quite fond of mortals more than she'd admit, and Gabriel loves to tease her about it.
  • Taking the Bullet: She stands directly in the way of Avatar Belial's attack initially directed at Sandalphon, so she can give him the wings of the other Primarchs to power him up enough to take on Belial.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: She tries to stall her allies during their second encounter with the corrupted Fallen Angel form of Azrael and Israfel, claiming that she should take over the responsibility as an atonement for her negligence over the previously missing archangels.
    "My motives are partly selfish. I can't allow anyone else to kill her."
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Of herself and Gabriel, she’s clearly more the more masculine Primarch in terms of personality which translates to her speech and mannerisms.

The Water Primarch
Summon form 
"Kappa Summer Chronicle” Summer Version (NPC) 

The primarch of Water. Overflowing with kindness and compassion, she often acts as a mediator. Every now and then she will assume the form of a mortal and live among them to satisfy her interest in people-watching.


  • An Ice Person: Nearly all of her attacks are ice-themed.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She may be the nicest and kindest among the Primarchs, but she's every bit as deadly and powerful as them. Gameplay-wise, many players consider her the most difficult of the Primarchs to face.
  • Birds of a Feather: With her disciple Europa, which is likely why they get along better than the other disciple and primarch pairs introduced,.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: She appeared very briefly in the “Kappa Chronicle” summer event alongside to set up for a future storyline.
  • The Gadfly: She's quite fond of teasing others just to see their reactions, with how she teases Michael in the first WMTSB, and Cagliostro in 000.
  • God in Human Form: Will sometimes disguise herself as a human in order to go people-watching.
  • Hard-Drinking Party Girl: She loves the liquor that mortals make and brags that she can finish several bottles all by herself, much to Michael's concern.
  • Hospital Hottie: When in her human disguise in WMTSB, she takes up a job as a nurse and takes care of Eugen.
  • Informed Attractiveness: In "Kappa Summer Chronicle", The sight of Europa and Gabriel in swimsuits caused a passerby skirt-chasing guy to utter this line:
    S-such beauty! Beauty beyond what any mortal could possess! Absolute beauty... lies before my very eyes! How could I even think to speak to such divinity... What a grievous sin I've committed!
  • Magic Staff: The Staff of Gabriel contains her power, and is one of the Seraphic Weapons which the player can forge.
  • Nice Girl: She's easily the nicest among the Primarchs, often speaking to the captain in a very gentle and motherly tone.
  • No Macguffin No Winner: When Sandalphon comes for her wings in "What Makes the Sky Blue", she destroys her wings so that Sandalphon can't take them, giving the Captain and the others a chance to defeat him. Once the other Primarchs' wings are restored to their rightful owners, they heal her wings back to normal.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Her default expression is a gentle and kind smile.
  • She's Got Legs: Reveals a lot of skin, just look at her NPC artwork.
  • Standard Status Effects: This is her role in the Four Primarchs raid, by inflicting some very nasty debuffs and ailments, as well as repeatedly removing buffs from the players.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Is clearly the more feminine Primarch between her and Michael.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is a very light shade of pink.

     Uriel 

Voiced by: Kenyuu Horiuchi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/uriel_npc_6.png
The Earth Primarch
Summon form 

The primarch of Earth. Being the youngest of the four primarchs, the others treat him like a little brother.


  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: His primary fighting style as his regeneration basically nulls any wounds an enemy inflicts. Unfortunately this doesn't quite work against Sariel wielding an immortal killing weapon.
  • Armor-Piercing Attack: His role in the Four Primarchs raid, being the first phase of the fight, he puts up a buff that lets him completely ignore Damage Cut buffs (the all elemental type ones only, the single element cuts wotk normally), letting him bring the pain as early as possible.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: The youngest of the 4 major Primarchs. It’s stated in his profile that because of this, the elder 3 treat him like a younger brother.
  • Blood Knight: Not a villainous example, but he loves to fight and test the physical capabilities of others, even challenging others to outdo him.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: He’s an earth element Primarch.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Because Sariel is the only angel capable of matching Uriel in terms of physical strength, they treat each other as a Worthy Opponent. But as "The Maydays" event shows, Sariel is actually concerned about Uriel that he inquires his condition from the other angels. In return, Malluel thinks of informing a worried Uriel right away that Sariel returned from being missing-in-action.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: His fists are infused with the power of earth. The Gauntlet of Uriel contains his power, and is one of the Seraphic Weapons the player can forge.
  • Heroic Build: Very muscular.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's the most openly abrasive of the primarchs, often speaking in a very rough manner and he tends to mock the captain, but he's a pretty nice guy underneath it all.
  • Magma Man: Has one charge attack that deals both earth and fire damage.
  • Muggle Sports, Super Athletes: In Alexiel’s summer fate episode, Vyrn calls him out on calling mundane summer activities “Uriel Style”, until they see it put into practice. Needless to say, only Alexiel and the protagonist are able to keep up, though the protagonist is noted to become became visibly weary over every activity.
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: He’s extremely muscular which translates to his demonstrated Super Strength.
  • Spinning Piledriver: Attempted this to Sariel from some distance in the air, to some effect as it ends up taking out two of his wings, which would in turn prevent Belial from gaining an unbeatable amount of power when he took Sariel's wings.
  • Super Strength: The most physically adept of the Tetra-element Primarchs to an almost exaggerated degree, further demonstrated in Alexiel’s summer fate episode.
  • Supreme Chef: He's well known for his "Uriel Stew".
  • The Big Guy: Of the four Primarchs, he fulfills this role.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Only wears what looks like a fur collar.

For tropes regarding their character, see the Granblue Fantasy Primal Characters page.


     Azrael and Israfel 

Voiced by: Marina Inoue

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/azrael_and_israfel_npc.png

Fellow messenger primarchs who were originally known as the archangels of instruction. They mysteriously disappeared centuries ago on one of their missions during the Primal Beast rebellion. Azrael and Israfel also share close sisterly bonds with the archangel twins Halluel and Malluel.


  • A Day In The Lime Light: Outside of the “What Makes The Sky Blue” trilogy, they get some spotlight alongside starring character Sandalphon in “The Maydays” summer event.
  • And I Must Scream: They were trapped inside the Avatar for two millennia. And even after they were freed from Avatar's downfall, they can no longer retain their physical form and most of their sanity. Among the twins, Azrael became more deranged, with Israfel still capable of comforting her with words and speaking through telepathy.
  • Body Horror: AND HOW.
  • Catchphrase: Azrael has "Oyoyo".
  • Continuity Nod: The prologue of "The Maydays" recalls that Az and Is are now settling down on a tree house with Hal and Mal, just like how the WMTSB trilogy ended.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: While Azrael isn't that weird, she is easily so ditzy that Israfel qualifies as this to remind Azrael of their missions. Often, with varying success.
  • The Ditz: Azrael is easily the ditziest out of the two messenger angel duos as she's quickly distracted by any mention of food.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: Azrael is dark-skinned with lavender hair.
  • Driven to Suicide: Due to their horrific fate and to spare Halluel and Malluel from any more pain, they ultimately take their own life with the chaos blade. However, Cagliostro was able to create a spare body through her alchemy and bring them back at the end of 000... but at the side effect of putting them in a Two Beings, One Body situation.
  • Embarrassing Animal Suit: The angels wear a pink dolphin costume to hide their disfigured bodies during the 2019 summer event.
  • Fallen Angel: By the time the two get reunited with Halluel and Malluel, Az and Iss are now being controlled by Belial and Beelzebub. Covered in some sort of sack, with their limbs and wings sticking out, it is implied that they become heavily deformed. This physical form of an abomination is no longer capable of normal speech, but growls and screams like a beast instead.
  • The Glomp: In "The Maydays", Azrael charged straight at Sandalphon so hard he got pushed back, when all she wanted to do was hug him.
    Malluel: Hey, hey! That's more of a tackle than a hug!
  • Mood Whiplash: In "The Maydays", Azrael breaks the serious and emotional conversation between Sandalphon and Sariel squealing while in a pink dolphin outfit.
  • Not Quite Dead: Cagliostro and Raphael manage to save Azrael as she was dying, restoring her sanity. Though Azrael remains in her deformed state.
  • Power Limiter: The archangels of instruction were made with ability limiters.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Introduced in “What Makes The Sky Blue: 000” as long time companions of Halluel and Malluel despite not previously being mentioned by any of the angels in the previous events. Possibly justified in universe as it is stated that they had gone missing a long time ago.
  • Sharing a Body: Due to their physical bodies being experimented to fuse as a deformed single entity, they now count as two beings in one body. Azrael gets to control the phyiscal body for most of the time, and Israfel can only perform telepathy to communicate with others. Near the end of WMTSB3 and during the prologue of "The Maydays" event, Azrael recovers full consciousness and control of the body, while Israfel can only take over telepathically when Azrael is sleeping. But as of the ending to "The Maydays", the two can now voluntarily switch who gets in control.
  • She's Got Legs: Due to their leotard outfits, their legs are exposed, which also reveal areas of skin that are unusually colored and display markings that resemble tattoos.
  • Super Speed: They are implied to have this ability as the Grandcypher crew are unable to properly aim at their corrupted form as they continuously move in mid-air. Even Halluel and Malluel had difficulties fighting them in combat because of this.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: As of "The Maydays", Azrael has taken a liking with bringing up eggplant topics to the point where she once thought of declining to go the beach because it doesn't have eggplants.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Despite interacting with him multiple times in “The Maydays”, they don’t seem to point out or acknowledge the fact that Lucio looks exactly like their former boss, Lucifer. Due to Lucio’s power to alter memories, it could be likely that he made it so they knew him already or that they’ve possibly addressed the issue offscreen, however this is strangely never brought up in the story itself.
  • The Un-Reveal: They are heavily implied to be fused together in some way due to the sack having two different pairs of wings sticking out, but the exact details are never shown.

     Sariel 

Voiced by: Akira Ishida

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sariel_npc.png
Archangel of Execution

Once known as the Archangel of Execution, Sariel now directly serves Lucilius and is allied with Belial. He possesses exceptional battle prowess, but also has a stunted psychological development due to a limiter placed on him.

During the events of "What Makes The Sky Blue III: 000", Sariel debuts as one of the Fallen Angels summoned by Beelzebub to counter the four tetra-primarchs. However, his mentality has been shattered and now wears a mask. Like Azrael and Israfel, he is armed with a chaos weapon in the form of a scythe.


  • A Day In The Lime Light: Outside of the “What Makes The Sky Blue” trilogy, He gets some spotlight in “The Maydays” summer event which also serves as foreshadowing for him triggering the return of Belial and Lucilius.
  • Advertised Extra: Sariel had a unique close-up shot in the Teaser Trailer for "What Makes The Sky Blue III", placing him among Sandalphon, Belial and Beelzebub (the former being the event protagonist while the latter two are the villains), like he would be set up to play a large role in the event. Sariel would actually receive the same plot relevance, and almost the same amount of screentime and dialogue as Azrael and Israfel, two angels who weren't even featured in the trailer video.
  • Ambiguously Gay: His relationship with Belial makes him come off as this, with it as of “The Maydays” being juxtaposed with Lucifer and Sandalphon’s all but stated by Word of God to be romantic connection. In a Pash! interview with his voice actor, when asked what Belial is to Sariel, he states that to Sariel, Belial is someone he loves even though they’re apart.
  • Apologetic Attacker: Before he pries open the jaw of Old Bruce, he casually says this line.
    There you go. Just keep saying ah... Sorry.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: He can become easily distracted due to his mental handicaps. He was on the verge of tears upon learning that Belial wants him to live, only to lose all interest when he sees an ant.
  • Break Out Character: Like event antagonists Sandalphon and Belial before him, he was one of the most popular newly introduced character to come out of the “What Makes The Sky Blue” trilogy where even fans are asking for him to be playable alongside the usual angels note . Upon his reveal as the dark Primarch summon on 2019’s April 30th Grand Fest, he trended highest on worldwide Twitter for a while.
  • Broke Episode: After recovering at the end of the WMTSB trilogy under Uriel's care, Sariel ended up in a bar from a passenger ship. He didn't have any rupies and he was just following a column of ants. The guards arranged him to work part-time, so that he can pay back the transportation fees. In "The Maydays", he also works as a part-time caddie for the Shark Hunter Martin.
  • Bishounen: Follows the trend of the Angels and fallen angels being attractive.
  • Cloudcuckoolander:
    • Even before Sariel became a deranged Fallen Angel, he already had a stunted psychological growth due to his Power Limiter. When Belial decides to tag along with his hobby and past-time, Sariel mentions that he likes observing anthills and compares himself to an ant solder.
    • His limited vocabulary and understanding also gets demonstrated in "The Maydays" event when he mentioned his plan of finding Belial by "tracking down the rainbow". Sandalphon understands that Sariel is actually looking for the dimensional rift (where Belial is sealed). Sariel cannot also understand honorifics like "Mister" and thinks that others are misinterpreting his name, as well as the act of kissing, and even forgetting to pay the food he just bought.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Due to his Power Limiter giving him a psychological handicap and turning him into a Cloudcuckoolander, Sariel doesn't even understand the concept of kissing. When he eavesdrops and watches Ellen and Martin kissing on the beach, he says this gem:
    Are they eating each other?
  • Cool Mask: Sariel wears a white hockey mask with holes and a red stripe of paint similar to what Jason Vorhees has.
  • Death Seeker: Sariel angrily screams "Give me eternal death!" when fighting Uriel. When Sariel recovers at the end of the event, he repeatedly asks in disappointment why is he still alive.
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: Shows signs of this in the end of the WMTSB trilogy as he wonders why Belial let him live even after the war has ended. Sariel believes that Belial knows the answer and that "he must track down the rainbow" to find Belial once more.
  • The Dreaded: Sariel's unexpected arrival alone causes Raphael to tremble in fear and lose consciousness, which makes Sariel live up to his title of Executioner.
    • In "The Maydays", Post ending, a line of Sariel's reveals that he did see a Shark man and tried saying hi only for it to run back into the sea, suggesting he has this status despite not being hostile
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Gender-inverted case. Sariel's pale appearance in a black hair and clothing even gets noticed by Martin in "The Maydays" when he called Sariel a "gangly skeleton".
  • Foil: Sandalphon and Sariel both have a question and a wish that they want to be answered by their mentors who also have opposing goals (Lucifer and Belial). While Sandalphon found his resolve by the end of the WMTSB trilogy, Sariel is still searching for his own. By the end of “The Maydays”, due to Sandalphon sympathizing with Sariel’s desire to be reunited with Belial due to his own desire to be reunited with Lucifer, he allows Sariel to seek out his purpose by finding the dimensional rift which traps Belial and Lucilius even if it means potentially freeing both of them.
  • Fallen Angel: Is one of the fallen angels recruited by Belial and later summoned by Beelzebub during the war of the "What Makes The Sky Blue" trilogy.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Because Sariel is the only angel capable of matching Uriel in terms of physical strength, they treat each other as a Worthy Opponent. But as "The Maydays" event shows, Sariel is actually concerned about Uriel that he inquires his condition from the other angels. In return, Malluel thinks of informing a worried Uriel right away that Sariel returned from being missing-in-action.
  • Gentle Giant: Is one of the tallest Primarchs, even taller than Lucifer at around 190 cm according to a Pash! Interview and has an innocent and gentle personality.
  • Grim Reaper: Fits this role among the ranks of the archangels. Appearance wise, he invokes the ivory/white face, black clothing/armor, the title of "Executioner", and most importantly, a Sinister Scythe.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Sariel once lost half of his body fighting monsters from the Otherworld.
  • "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: During the first half of WMTSB3, Sariel has already lost most of his mind, and acts nothing but a pawn. Uriel attempts this on him but it only made Sariel more aggressive. Belial does the same to Sariel when the former is betrayed by Beelzebub and it worked, restoring Sariel's former self.
  • Jawbreaker: In Chapter 3 of "The Maydays", Sariel holds Old Bruce's jaw with his whole arm, pulling out the live, swallowed victims using brute force.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Also with braids on the sides.
  • Malaproper: His mental handicap also limits his vocabulary as he gives an example of this trope in "The Maydays" but quickly corrects himself afterwards.
    Please be patient as I wash and learn... Er, watch and learn...
  • Mental Handicap, Moral Deficiency: Sariel has a psychological defect to begin with. But when he returns as a Fallen Angel, he lost most of his reasoning and only fights under command. His speech patterns are also limited to stuttering cries, and imitating the last word his opponent speaks. Sariel does get better, though it takes two of his former comrades to reason with his previous self. He retains his sentience and mannerisms, enough to briefly fight against Beelzebub in the fifth chapter of WMTSB3.
  • Mood Whiplash: One would expect that Sariel is about to cry after learning that Belial actually saved him by ripping his wings, then Sariel gets distracted by an ant, turning his previously teary expression into complete amusement in just a second.
  • Not Quite Dead: After Belial takes his wings, the corruption by Avatar was also removed from him to allow proper regeneration and revival. Sariel is left unsure of what to do afterwards.
  • Obliviously Evil: Not necessarily “evil” but his desire to see Belial again and the lengths he will go to do it foreshadow that he will be the one who sets Belial and Lucilius free despite the others admonishing him about the consequences of trying to find the “rainbow”.
  • Occult Blue Eyes: The trailer for "What Makes The Sky Blue III" has a shot of Sariel Face Framed in Shadow with one of his eye glowing light blue as his face is slowly darkened.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: "The Maydays" ends with Martin seemingly caught in the explosion of the bomb he used against Old Bruce, with the ending implying that he didn't survive. In "The Maydays 2", Martin narrates that he actually survived the encounter, thanks to Sariel quickly pulling him back.
  • Power Limiter: His limiter slows down his psychological development, essentially turning him to a soldier without self-reasoning. This makes Sariel think that he's nothing but a soldier who can fight without having to think at all. In turn, Belial sees this mentality as Sariel's Fatal Flaw, which Belial takes advantage of to recruit Sariel to their cause.
  • Red Baron: He was known as the Executioner even before the start of the trilogy, and is still capable of living up to his title during the third event.
  • Running Gag: As of "The Maydays", Sariel's obsession with observing and following ant trails gets exagerrated to the point where he ended up in a bar because he noticed a column of ants. And during the flashback scene prior to "What Makes the Sky Blue", Sariel stumbled across Sandalphon's garden because again... he has following a trail of ants. When he and Sandalphon meet in the beach, Sandalphon went saying ahead that he knew Sariel simply followed ants before.
  • Sanity Slippage: Zig-zagged. Sariel was originally The Stoic Executioner made to eliminate hostile threats. He loses his sense of self as a Fallen Angel, muttering only incomprehensible cries in combat. He gets more and more aggressive and deranged as Uriel (and Belial) appeal to his previous self, and it worked on the second attempt, making Sariel allied to Belial on his own volition.
  • Sinister Scythe: His weapon. And since it has been empowered with chaos to function as an Immortal Breaker, even the physically strongest primarch Uriel fears getting hit by it. Michael later attempts to use it as a Weapon Of Intimidation for an incapacitated Belial to spit out their plans.
  • The Stoic: Is one of the most emotionally calm and silent among the archangels.
  • Super Strength: Sariel is noted to be one of the physically strongest primal beasts. He demonstrates this in "The Maydays" when he held open the jaw of the giant shark Old Bruce with one arm and pulled the victims out using the other, a feat that Sandalphon didn't event attempt.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Belial, and subsequently Lucilius, whom the two serve and directly report to.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: He gives the most physically adept Uriel a hard time in close quarters-combat. Sariel's combat prowess is remarked on by several archangels, ally or enemy alike.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Played with. He doesn’t recognize Lucio upon first seeing him and asks who he is, despite very likely knowing Lucifer, whom Lucio resembles and vice versa, when he was alive. When Lucio tells him his name, Sariel comments that he does know him and that there’s something wrong with him. Lucio comments in turn that Sariel could discern his being without bringing up the fact that he resembles Lucifer.

One of Lucilius' final creations meant to bring ruin to the world. The light legacy to Avatar's dark. His power rivals Lucifer's himself, but his physical form is unable to contain such power.

As of May 2019’s Flash Gala, he is available as a summon, completing the series of Primarch gacha summons.


  • Badass Arm-Fold: Metatron holds this pose while in battle.
  • Bonus Boss: At the end of What Makes the Sky Blue II, he was the bonus challenge boss in the instance called Light's Reverie. Defeating him rewarded players with a lite version of the unticketable Optimus summons or a sunlight stone (their choice). The exact same fight was made available in Kluger Island later, in which he drops the light element Omega II weapons and his Anima required for various upgrades.
  • Gold and White Are Divine: His body is made of gold, white, and some blue to show his holy nature.
  • Good Counterpart: Of Avatar.
  • Light Is Good: Contrasting with the destructive, but non-malicious Avatar, Metatron was able to retain his sanity afrer being made from countless fused cores. The price was that his body couldn't handle the power and self-destructs whenever he takes physical form.
  • Power at a Price: In exchange for keeping his sanity, Metatron's body is not capable of existing for long. Even attacking damages himself in the process. It is likewise harder for him to take physical form using their Healing Factor.

Black Beast

A chimera primal beast created by Lucilius using the cores of the primal beasts that rebelled against the astrals as he planned all along. It is a force of pure power with no mind of its own and is fought in "What Makes the Sky Blue II: Paradise Lost". He was later made available as a Bonus Boss in one of the chapters in Nalhegrande.


  • Bonus Boss: Along with Metatron, his fight was made available in Kluger Island, with an entirely new cutscene to explain his presence. He drops the dark versions of the Omega II weapons.
  • Brought Down to Badass: He's lost two sets of wings after Beelzebub takes control of him and numerous angels who were used to make him were separated in 000, signifying his loss in power. He's still strong enough to be a challenge in the final battle of Versus.
  • Demoted to Dragon: Beelzebub made the weakened Avatar into his minion by Versus.
  • Evil Counterpart: Of Metatron.
  • Final Boss: The last opponent of the event. Even on Impossible where he trades places with Belial at 50%.
  • Healing Factor: Avatar's body can regenerate nearly instantly after death due to all the cores used to create him. Sandalphon, the protagonist and the crew, and finally the combined might of the four archangels and the protagonist killed him three times together. Even with the third attack damaging his core Avatar began to regenerate from his injuries. These properties get passed on to individual cores separated from it, though with less power.
  • Irony: Avatar is a satanic figure amongst the primarchs in a setting where Satan is already a Primal Beast. His design is one of Satan's forms from Shadowverse and Rage of Bahamut.
  • Leitmotif: "Paradise Lost" plays in the Avatar's raid battle from the WMTSB2 event, as well as a Magna II boss.
  • Mind Hive: It wasn't obvious during the initial fight with it, but the individual primals merged to create it? Those with intact cores were fully conscious the entire time. For two thousand years. Once the individual cores get separated after Avatar's downfall, the pain and terror of millennia of having all their minds smashed together has driven the individual angels hopelessly insane - and some of these were dear friends of other angels.
  • Multiple-Tailed Beast: Avatar has two tails.
  • Mythology Gag: Its design is taken from the "Abyss Armageddon Satan" of Rage of Bahamut. This also ties in with Dub Name Change as Cygames had to rename it to Avatar, much like how they did with the English localization of renaming Satan to Prince of Darkness in Shadowverse.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: It is a mindless force of power acting on said power without an ounce of ill intent. When it does target someone, it's only after that person kills him. However, if you separate individual cores from it and try to remanifest those primals, said primals are hopelessly insane from pain, fear and power.
  • Screaming Warrior: Its only way of talking is through demonic roars.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Sealed away by the supreme primarch Lucifer to prevent his maker's creation from dooming the world.
  • Shared Life Meter: The Impossible raid boss battle in "Paradise Lost" is actually a fight against two bosses, with Belial starting the fight for the first half of their health, and swapping out with Avatar once their HP bar dips at 50%.
  • Volcanic Veins: Easily visible as they glow in its Overdrive state, Avatar has red veins all over its chest.

Event Primal Beasts

Covers primal beasts that appear in events. For primal beasts that are outright villainous and appear as major antagonists in events, see the Granblue Fantasy Event Antagonists page.

     Nephthys 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nephthys.png

A primal beast appearing in "The Cowardly Hero and the Captive Princess" event.


  • Locked Up and Left Behind: She kidnaps people in her lair and...that's it. She then either guards the entrance of her lair or teleports and kidnaps another person. Fortunately for her victims, there's also a massive hole on the other side of the cave.
  • Red Herring: She is this twice. One reason is that the real antagonist of the event was Aviza who was plotting against Aliza, her family, and Valtz as a whole. The second, she never kidnapped Ayer. It was a ruse created by Bowman to make Jessica and her family look for them in the wrong way.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Her kidnapping of Aliza was the catalyst that set Aviza's plot.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: She just disappears after the first half of the event.

     Xolotl 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/xolotl_npc.png

A dog primal beast that worshipped as a god and is thought to bring prosperity to the people of Xochitl. It appears in the event, "Five Flowers of Fate", and continues to appear (or at least mentioned) in Diantha's fate episodes.


  • Anti-Villain: It is actually a benevolent primal beast, though became hostile when it was reminded of its tragic past when the ichnia (idol fans) rioted.
  • The Chooser of The One: Or at least likes Diantha too much. Despite her officially retiring after the events of "Five Flowers of Fate", it still ends up calling her and her fellow idols to perform in Auguste Isles.
  • The Determinator: Even after its capture by the astrals during the war, the dog remained loyal to its former master, so much that it escaped their grasp just to meet him once again. Unfortunately, it didn't end well.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: The people eventually forgot about Xolotl over the years due to cultural changes.
  • Hopeless Boss Fight: Gets one of these in the final chapters. It took the five maidens to sing its favorite song to allow the crew to lay a scratch on him.
  • Music Soothes the Savage Beast: The idols' music and song eventually calm it down, now reminding it of the happier past when the ancient Xochitl people had accepted it without fear.
  • Playing with Fire: Despite being wind element, it occasionally attacks using flames. The attack's element is still wind, though.
  • Tears from a Stone: Its statues gush out tears when it is reminded of its tragic past, or gameplay-wise, when entering Overdrive during the raid battle.

     Jade 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jade_npc.png

A failed primal beast experiment of the Astrals, she was abandoned in an island for decades until eventually she met and befriended a young ranger named Walder. She appears in the event, "Ranger Sign: Bravo!"


  • Anti-Villain: She was the monstrosity the villagers of Treetop Isle mentions about. As it turns out later, it wasn't entirely her fault.
  • Auto-Tune: Her default voice is this.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Fenrir's motivations in the event was entirely because she was saved by Jade during an experiment before she was taken in by Loki.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: As part of an experiment, she was installed with eternalirium, a condition that would force her into a frenzied state, which is exactly what happens in the event.
  • Connect the Deaths: Spotting one of the ranger signs he and Jade learned when they were kids leads Walder to realize that the seemingly random attacks that Jade had been making form a ranger sign saying that a specific place is dangerous when you connect the dots on a map. It turns out to be where she intends Walder and his friends to trigger her Self-Destruct Mechanism to stop her rampage.
  • Famed in Story: Due to her assistance with a young Walder in driving away the hunters, she gained quite a reputation among villagers in Treetop Isle including Jasmine herself. This actually came in quite a heavy blow to the villagers after The Reveal of the monstrosity's true identity.
  • Gameplay and Story Integration: By the end of the event, Jade's consciousness is trying hard to prevent her body from going on a rampage. This continues in the raid boss fight where it doesn't start to attack for two turns, as well as occasionally causing self-inflicting damage.
  • "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: Walder invokes this and it works. The process seems to be interrupted by Fenrir, but fortunately, it sticks when Walder finds her again.
  • Right for the Wrong Reasons: The village's chief herbalist deduces Jade as a primal beast due to her animalistic and child-like characteristics. Considering the massive differences between each primal beast, as well as existence of non-primal creatures such as Vyrn, she made a lucky guess.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: Her eventual fate. She returns to the real world in crystal form due to having her body being destroyed by the party.
  • Self-Destruct Mechanism: The Astral researchers who created her built in one of these in case she became a liability. The heroes are unfortunately forced to activate it in order to stop Jade's rampage.
  • Theme Naming: Her name is the first of many "ranger names" Walder came up with, a gemstone based on the color of a body part or clothing—in this case, her green eyes. Shares the theme with Ruby (Vyrn), Sapphire (Lyria), and Turquoise (Jasmine), the latter of which refused to answer unless she's called Tiger's Eye instead.
  • Walking Spoiler: Naturally, since the entire plot of the event revolves around her.

     Sharom 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/600px_sharom.png

A pacifistic primal beast with the power to take away the will to fight. It appears in the event, "Violet Violence".


  • Actual Pacifist: Apart from making other people and monsters to dislike fighting, it also actually dislikes fighting. However, it is forced into fighting the crew when Baldir takes over it.
  • The Blank: Has a head but otherwise has no facial features.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Originally Dark element but is possibly the least likely to attack unprovoked.
  • Green Thumb: Its magic actually created the flowers that help calm the monsters in the island down. When forced to fight, it uses vines as well.
  • Meaningful Name: Shalom is a Hebrew word meaning peace and tranquility, which is what Sharom is all about.

     Procris 

The unicorn-like primal beast of summoning which resides in the Fairy Gorge, otherwise known as the Nymph's Ravine. It appears in the collaboration event, "Cardcaptor Sakura: Sakura and the Mysterious Sky Journey".


  • Continuity Nod: It's one of the answers in the Captain's Pop Quiz section of the event, "Auld Lanxiety". It's actually the incorrect answer to the question it appears. Picking the answer would prompt Lyria to explain about Procris, indicating that the collaboration event was (possibly) canon.
  • Dimensional Traveler: It enters Japan looking for its master, opening up a portal to the Skyrealm in the process.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Its main reason for inadvertedly scattering the Clow Cards into the Skyrealm, as they share similarities of having been abandoned by their masters.

     Arte

Primal Beast of the Arts
Caro 

The primal beast of arts residing in and is regarded as the guardian of Perfetto Island. He appears in the event, "Together In Song".


  • Anti-Villain: The final boss of the "Together In Song" event, but not by choice. He took in the despair of the people of Perfetto Island but it caused his power to become unstable and the crew is forced to stop him.
  • Deep Sleep: Because his body isn't as strong as most Primal Beast, it'll take years for him to recover and by the end of the event, he fell to a slumber.
  • Easily Forgiven: Despite the villagers threatening to kill him, he's was never angry nor held a grudge against them.
  • Genius Ditz: In one of the more hilarious moments, he actually buys Elta's Suspiciously Specific Denial about him not seeing his magic.
  • God in Human Form: He disguises himself as a traveler named Caro to communicate with the residents of the island.
  • Music Soothes the Savage Beast: It takes Elta, Selfira, Niyon and the entire Sky Philharmonic Orchestra to calm him down of his rampage. This is even one of the solo challenges you can do after completing the event.
  • Plot Coupon: Averted. Despite making a pact with Perfetto Island, he is unable to summon a piece of the Sky Map. It's implied that this is because of him unconsciously preventing his paintings from turning into monsters.
  • Your Mind Makes It Real: How his paintings and music look and sound depends on each person. This was a bad thing when grieving residents of Perfetto Island came to see his works as distorted during their despair and later, affecting him as well.

     Nezha 

Voiced by: Daisuke Kishio

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nezha_pripals.png

One of the "primal pals" alongside Medusa, Baal and Satyr. Once known as a warrior among primal beasts, Nezha became acquainted with the gorgon sisters after he was saved by Euryale and Stheno. Ever since, his battle-hungry attitude was softened as his interest in mortal culture grew.


  • Assist Character: In a Scripted Battle of "Primal Resonance", the fight against Zaoshen starts off with Nezha unleashing his Summon Call, taking out a chunk of the boss HP, and as a Revenge to the beast who defeated him earlier.
  • Beetle Maniac: He used to collect bugs as a hobby, but traded that for reading books.
  • Blood Knight: Nothing gets him fired up than a good fight, and has been called a "battle maniac" by his pals at least once. It's all but said that Baal and Medusa met him in a fight.
  • Bookworm: He's become more knowledgeable about mortal culture than his fellow "primal pals" through books.
  • Lampshade Hanging: Of all people, Nezha is the one who points out Medusa's defining trait.
    Nezha: She's what mortals call a tsundere.
  • Not So Stoic: While he sports a calm and silent demeanor for most of the time, Nezha's fight against Zaoshen reveals that he can be Laughing Mad, sporting an unusual smile when in the climax of a battle.
  • Taken for Granite: Was turned to stone by Geo, who is controlling Euryale's and Stheno's powers.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: Although primarily a Wind-elemental, he also has Fire-elemental abilities.

     Satyr 

Voiced by: Manaka Iwami

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/satyr_pripals.png
Summer Appearance (Summon) 

One of the "primal pals" alongside Medusa, Nezha and Baal. Satyr is a carefree and goofy primal beasts who always likes to see the good things first in others.


  • Assist Character: In a Scripted Battle of "Primal Resonance", the fight against Snow White starts off with Satyr unleashing her Summon Call, taking out a chunk of the boss HP, and as a Revenge to the beast who froze her earlier.
  • Best Friend: She describes her bond with Medusa, Baal and Nezha as "best friends for life" even though they are verbally in-denial with this despite being real. Lyria's Flavor Text for all of them in her Journal even make use of the term "primal pals" to describe them as a collective.
  • Buxom Is Better: Even with her summon, she's noted for her sizable chest by fans.
  • The Ditz: As cute, kind-hearted and energetic as she is, Satyr went around playfully conversing with Snow White, not realizing that the latter had already been brainwashed, which led to Satyr getting frozen without fighting back. When she was released, Satyr made the lamest excuse... that she was simply taking a nap inside the ice for her beauty sleep!
  • Funny Background Event: Her summer-themed summon's art shows Athena hitting Medusa's head with a volleyball.
  • Genki Girl: Satyr is the hyperactive, cutesy and energetic among the bunch of stoic Baal and Nezha, as well as a loud-mouthed tsundere Medusa.
  • Harmless Freezing: Satyr was frozen in a block of ice by a brainwashed Snow White when the group decided to split up the search.
  • Lampshade Hanging: For the introductory chapters of the event, she describes her friends in this manner, via name-dropping characterizations and tropes. Even in one dialogue, the English localization uses the word "adorkable" which originated as an English slang from the Internet.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Her ears look like a horse's, and she can be easily mistaken for an Erune.
  • Mega Twintails: They are thick, long and go past her skirt.
  • The Nicknamer: She has affectionate nicknames for her three best friends.
  • The Un-Reveal: What ever "incomprehensible characteristics" she’s implied to have are never revealed in the event, as Medusa is cut off before she can go into detail. The fandom have supposed that Satyr is a Futanari, due to the lore behind her namesake.
    Medusa: What he said. Actually, you know Satyr is-
  • No Sense of Personal Space: When Medusa arrives, Satyr's first course of action is to quickly and tightly hug her. Baal later verbally chastises her for this. And it is even subtly implied that Satyr also did this to the males (Baal and Nezha) just before Medusa came.
  • Shipper on Deck: Satyr playfully ships Medusa with their two male "primal pals" Nezha and Baal. However, she ships Baal more since he and Medusa are constantly bickering despite actually being close friends and having known each other for the longest among their group.
  • Storm of Blades: Her Summon Call lets her drop large swords at the target.
  • Taken for Granite: Was turned to stone by Geo, who is controlling Euryale's and Stheno's powers.

     Euryale 

Voiced by: Mai Nakahara

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/euryale_gbf.png

The middle gorgon sister known to be fierce in the middle of a battle. She and Stheno were last seen during The War and both of their presence later resurfaced in the "Primal Resonance" event.


  • Cool Sword: Wields a long jagged blade.
  • Deadly Gaze: Is able to turn beings into stone, just like in the Classical Mythology.
  • Fighting from the Inside: Was assimilated inside Geo along with Stheno, but they were able to regain consciousness for a short while, thanks to Baal and the Earth Prime Crystals. And they manage to undo the pertification on Satyr and Nezha.
  • Gorgeous Gorgon: Is very attractive for a female Primal Beasts, a trait which she shares with her gorgon sisters.
  • Living MacGuffin: Baal sensing Euryale's and Stheno's presence in an island is what led to their younger sister Medusa and the rest of the Grandcypher crew to arrive, thanks to a letter sent by Nezha. This kickstarts the "Primal Resonance" event where the party had to find out where their cores are located.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Has long hair just like her sisters.
  • The Stoic: Euryale is much more serious than Stheno and Medusa.
  • Uniqueness Value: Blood-related Primal Beast "siblings" are a very rare occurence, which is why Geo is so keen on having Medusa, Euryale and Stheno to himself in "Primal Resonance".

  • Rapunzel Hair: Has long hair just like her sisters.
  • Uniqueness Value: Blood-related Primal Beast "siblings" are a very rare occurence, which is why Geo is so keen on having Medusa, Euryale and Stheno to himself in "Primal Resonance".
