Final Fantasy 16: all Dominants and Eikons

As with most games across the past four decades of Square-Enix’s most popular role-playing franchise, Final Fantasy 16 sports plenty of gigantic summons based on various mythologies and religions. However, while these usually play a small part in the overall narrative of past Final Fantasy games, the newest game in the series brings them front and center as an integral part of its main storyline.

In the world of Final Fantasy 16, summons are known as Eikons, and each of these god-like beings possesses a host called a Dominant — a person who can summon the Eikon into the world and use their powers in battle. There are eight in total, and all of them play an important role in the intense and winding tale that Final Fantasy 16 weaves throughout its lengthy campaign.

We’ve listed all of the Dominants and Eikons here for you to reference, but keep in mind that this list will include some pretty major spoilers, especially in relation to some of the game’s earliest twists. If you’re still near the beginning of the game, or prefer to approach the story blindly, we recommend turning back now.
