|“||A power greater than even that of the Six, purifying all by the light of the Crystal and the glaives of rulers past. Only at the throne can the Chosen receive it, and only at the cost of a life: his own. The King of Kings shall be granted the power to banish the darkness, but the blood price must be paid. To cast out the usurper and usher in dawn's light will cost the life of the Chosen. Many sacrificed all for the King, so must the King sacrifice himself for all. Now enter into reflection that the Light of Providence shine within.||„|
|~ Bahamut's words to Noctis as they meet within the Crystal.|
|“||The Chosen's purpose is no more. Power is granted that darkness be banished and balance returned to the Star. When mortals grow arrogant, seeking to repeat blasphemies of old, no longer are they worthy wards. To cleanse the Star, all life must be swept away. So it is ordained, and so shall it be.||„|
|~ Bahamut's true intentions revealed.|
Bahamut is the overarching antagonist of Square Enix's Final Fantasy XV universe. He is one of the six rulers of Eos, who attempted to wipe out humanity whom he deemed foolish and meddlesome in his way.
What Makes Him Pure Evil?
- Bahamut was responsible for everything that happened in the FFXV universe.
- In the original timeline, Bahamut's helping heroes was for nothing but pragmatic reasons, as he wanted to end the line of Lucis and Oracle to vanquish the Starscourge, covering up his responsibility for everything he set in motion.
- Bahamut was also responsible for Ardyn's fall of villainy as he rejected him over Somnus.
- In Episode Ardyn, Bahamut let Ardyn suffer his fate as he viewed him as a failure.
- In the alternate timeline, Bahamut's villainy expanded:
- Bahamut deemed humans and other Gods as lower beings, and he wanted to end them all for their moral squeamishness to his ways.
- Bahamut resurrected Luna and granted powers same as Ardyn, only to help him recreate the Teraflare with her song.
- Bahamut attempted to kill the heroes and the other gods who opposed him.
- According to a creative explanation by a fan to link the two "timelines" together, Bahamut abused the power of the Crystal to instigate a timeloop, leading to 13 loops ending as the base game did, followed by a fourteenth taking the Verse 2 route in Episode Ignis, and then the fifteenth and final one going the route of the FFXV -DotF-. This theory is called the "Versus XV theory"(in allusion to FFXV's original name and it's allusions to the number XV).
