Espers in the world of Final Fantasy XII are similar to the summons in other Final Fantasy titles. Each Esper represents a particular member of the zodiac. Just like other celestial beings throughout Final Fantasy, Espers have their own specific powers. These specific powers are typically granted to those called summoners. However, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age takes a different approach. Instead, any character can summon an Esper as long as they have the license to do so.
After defeating an Esper, you’ll gain its power. Defeating it doesn’t only pass its powers to you, but also causes it to swear its allegiance to you. All you need to do is to have the appropriate amount of LP (License Points) in order to unlock them. Some Espers have specific places you need to go to before you can unlock them.
The Espers under this table appear as the story progresses. Players will get these Espers regardless of how many side quests they undertake.
In order to unlock these Espers, there are certain side quests to accomplish. They are not unlocked through the main story. However, some of these summons may also be considered the stronger ones due to using more of the Mist Gauge.
