Mine would have to be Anima from FFX. That summoning was just brutal. What about you guys/ladies?

Bahamut - king of dragons for the win ;)

I like seeing how his animation/appearance can change slightly and sometimes so dramatically between games.

I personally like Diablos from FF8 but I agree with you about Anima

I have to admit, Knights of the Round got me pretty excited the first time I saw it. I never liked using it too often though, because it took so damn long to cast, that I could (and did!) make a snack while waiting for it.

and when you attach the clone materia it would cast twice. Ten minutes of my life I'm not getting back.

And bahamut all the way. Anytime that mofo enters the battlefield on any ff, hurting is about to happen.

I dug Odin too. The guy wasn't a summon- he was too cool for that. He summoned himself, rode in on his horse, did his thang and left.
Badass!

And yeah
this one

Personally I like Knights of the Round, from FFVII, although, I don't know if that counts...

Hmmm...I personally liked the magus sisters from FFX, but they aren't my favorite. Odin all the way, though Alexander was pretty cool.

I would have to say Diablos from FF8. All around, design, entrance, exit, and his attack. When he throws that gravi/demi ball or whatever you want to call it, it looks like he's using all of his strength to get it moving and when it does, its fast and "sounds" very powerful.

All the Bahamuts, my favorite one is FFX's Dark Bahamut, even got him tattooed onto me, I want to get the FFXIII one tattooed to as he looks cool and futuristic.

And Ifrit from FFVIII. And Griever if he counts..

FF7: Choco/Mog. The paralysis was very helpful the first time I played the game.
FF8: DOOOOOMTRAAAAIN! Status effects much?
FF9: Ark I suppose. I never used them a lot in this. Much easier to Shock Grand Lethal Meteor things to death.
FF10: Anima or Magus Sisters. Sheer power!
FF12: Didn't like the summons in this. If I had to choose one, Addramelech because of the name (not that I can recall the correct spelling).

FF7 Odin was always my favorite for some reason.
Also I love the Doomtrain just because its a reference to FF6 boss

Bahamut is always awesome....but if I had to pick one, I agree Anima was absolute insanity.

"FEEL MY PAIN, COME ANIMA!" I mean come on, crazyness!

I liked Alexander from 9 :) THAT scene, Bahamut vs Alexander was just epic :O

I always liked Shiva, I gotta say. Diamond dust was always a great move.
I liked Valefor from 10 aswell. I don't really know why, he wasn't anything special. I just kinda liked him =]

Can't argue with that, although Knights of the Round from FFVII is still my personal fave.

Diablos FF8 was seriously awesome. Though I'm gonna be proper gay and say that one of my favourite things is to see how Shiva gets better through every game... it feels like I'm watching my child grow up :D

..ok, that was gay

Final Fantasy X - Yojimbo, mercenary for hire.

Speaking of summons, does anyone watch the anime -- Gintama? Episode 194 references Leviathan and Bahamut

If you're in the U.S. watch that episode here - http://www.crunchyroll.com/media-539144/gintama-194/

The episode starts about 5 min in and the references start around 11 min in.

Definitely Diablos, with Eden a close second.

Choco/Mog from FF7...i think it was the 1st one you get in the game at the chocobo farm from memory..(might be wrong) very cute :)

You're correct, he can also be Fat Chocobo if the summoning goes wrong I guess.. bit random on it.

I don't have a set favorite, actually. >< I usually just have a favorite per game.

4: Leviathan
5: Ifrit
6: Tritoch
7: Hades
8: Diablos
9: Ark
10: Yojimbo
12: Exodus

I wonder who my favorite summon will be from 13. D: I know there are summons in the game, but i've yet to spoil any of them for myself. I like to be surprised.

Knights of the Round from VII or Anima from X

Hoping for some more cool ones from XIII too :D

Definitely Anima from FFX:

Although one could also make an arguement for the Magus Sisters as well:

The FF10 version was my favorite. she hit the enemies with the ice, kissed her fingertips and snapped her fingers causing the ice around the enemies to shatter.

I think Odin is gonna be pretty cool this time round (he's always cool, especially in the fight with Siefer in FFVIII) but he looks like he'll be cooler in this one.

Then Bahamut as always.

Agreed. Diablos is my favourite Final Fantasy summon. My top ten are:

10. Eden ( FFVIII )
09. Zodiark ( FFXII )
08. Ark (FF IX )
07. Shiva (FFVIII)
06. Anima ( FFX )
05.The Magus Sisters ( FFX )
04. Shemhazai ( FFXII )
03. Shiva ( FFX )
02. Doomtrain ( FFVIII - I always rename him Blaine :) )
01. Diablos ( FFVIII )

Bahamut is always my favourite.

This proud, mystic and mighty bestia, he is a hell of a beast.
