Adamantoise in Valley Of Sorrows
Adamantoise Special Attacks
While the Adamantoise itself has no mythological background, as it is originally a Square Enix (at the time known as Squaresoft) creation, initially appearing in Final Fantasy II, the material that it is named for, "Adamant", appears periodically in Norse and Greek mythology. It is said to be a material so strong that it was able to harm gods, as the greek god Cronos used a sickle forged from adamantine to castrate his father Uranus. It is also said that Tartarus, the pit of Hades where the most sinful of souls were sent, was sealed with adamant.
The name Adamantoise is a portmanteau of the words adamant and tortoise.
