Golbez is one of the primary antagonists in Final Fantasy IV, who also returned in its sequel The After Years. He’s also appeared in other games, like the Dissidia spin-offs. He’s one of many references to FFVI in Final Fantasy XIV. The game also features things like minions based on the main characters, the Tower of Zot as a dungeon with the Magus Sisters as a boss, and other references to the game in places like Mare Lamentorum.
Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PS4, PS5, and PC, and 6.4 will appear at the end of May 2023.
