Carbuncle as it appears in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.

Carbuncle is an enemy and a summon featured in the Final Fantasy series, originating in Final Fantasy III as an enemy and later Final Fantasy V for the SNES. In Final Fantasy V, Carbuncle was a secret boss that had to be defeated before it would join your list of summons. In Final Fantasy VI for the SNES, Carbuncle once again returns under the name Carbunkl.

In Final Fantasy Tactics Advance for the Game Boy Advance, Carbuncle casts reflect on a small area. Finally, in Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings for the Nintendo DS, Carbuncle is one of the most commonly used Espers in the game because of its ability to heal multiple units at once.
