Tough choice...

I have to say Ifrit from FFVIII. He was channeling my rage to the bosses back then.

What can I say? I used to die atleast a dozen time on every boss untill I learned that I should learn the stat junctions from the GF's and Draw as much as magic as possible. 'Twas too late since I'd completed the game in the most hard way possible.

Sigh... I was such a noob back then.

Design: Yojimbo FFX... I dig samurai-like characters like Auron and Yojimbo is basically a Samurai Aeon, I only ever got him once in my first playthrough of FFX. Ever since then I just got bored of battling and battling fiends in the calm lands and I never tried it again...

Usefulness- Phoenix (both FF7 and Crisis Core) I loved using phoenix in FF7 because it saved me so much from so many close calls in both Crisis core and FF7... it's basically Ifrit and phoenix down on both members combined

Favored- a Tie between Brynhildr, Odin, and Alexander from 13... I valued Sazh, Hope, and Lightning because of their balance as a team... sure I didn't have a sentinel or sabatuer... I always prefered buffing allies over Debuffing enemies because I had a hard time using Vanille prior to Nautilus and her debuffs worked well with Sazh's offensive buffs but it just didn't work so well in my head so when I chose my party members I went with Sazh, hope and Lightning but if I wanted to be defensive I swapped lightning for fang for a little bit of debuffing

My favorite summon is Bahamut. He is my favorite because I tend to like dragon creatures such as him. I specially liked in in Final Fantasy IV because he was the God of all Summons/Eidolons, which is a pretty deserving position when you consider he is one of the franchise's most powerful beast. I also like some of his designs, none has failed to impress me (although Neo Bahamut from Final Fantasy XIII-2 is not that appealing to me). Another trait I like about Bahamut is his attack which is the Mega-Flare, a VERY deadly attack for enemies and player.

Odin - I've always been a huge fan of Norse mythology...great for crowd control...
I agree with you there. I personally liked Final Fantasy XIII's iteration of the great Odin: either a swordsman or a horse the protagonist may ride. I think it was in Final Fantasy V, VI or both where you could upgrade him into a better summon (which I think was named Raiden).

Bahamut Zero. Well for the sake of the utter beauty of it's CGI in Crisis Core & I constantly used that first in FF7 when I was younger.

Really. Noones mentioned Cerberus from FF VIII? He casts Triple & Double cast on the entire party! Easily one of the most useful summons ever!

I have a favorite for most Final Fantasy games I've played. I'm going to list them since I can't pick among them.

Final Fantasy VII Crisis Core - Odin
Final Fantasy VII - Bahamut
Final Fantasy VIII - Quezacoatyl (I spam this guy when I can XD)
Final Fantasy IX - Haven't gained any of them yet cause game not working.
Final Fantasy X - Bahamut and Ixion are tied
Final Fantasy XII - Adremmelch and Zodiark.
Final Fantasy Dissidia - Ifrit and Carbuncle summonstones.

There is my worthless list. No one will ever guess which is my all time favorite from said list.
