Bahamut is the titular main antagonist of Rage of Bahamut. He is considered to be one of Cygames' mascot characters and is utilized in a multitude of their games including Granblue Fantasy and Dragalia Lost.
In Dragalia Lost, he is a major antagonist/supporting character responsible for the revival of Nedrick through forming a partial dragon pact. He also serves as the titular main antagonist of the game's final event "Advent of the Origin".
The vessel of Bahamut is a giant black dragon with huge wings.
Bahamut's true appearance is that of a white dragon that is even larger, spanning four red wings.
Rage of Bahamut
Bahamut's role is minimal, but there are weapons named after him that are considered powerful and dangerous. On top of that, there is a raid boss called Proto-Bahamut who is a weaker clone of the real deal.
At the beginning of the universe, Bahamut and Xenos formed a pact with each other to create the world. However, Xenos desired complete control over the inhabitants of the world while Bahamut sought free will, so the two battled each other, which resulted in Bahamut losing his physical form. However, the avatars of the elements, the seven Greatwyrms, fused into a vessel for him with which he sealed Xenos away at the cost of his life, leaving his servant, the Holywyrm Elysium to take charge of caring for the world.
Sometime later, after the son of King Aurelius passed away from dragonscales, Bahamut found the body and formed a partial pact with it, bringing it back to life. The boy then went on to be known as Nedrick and formed a group known as Agito. Nedrick then sought out to complete the pact that Bahamut force upon him, but he also had the intention of slaying Bahamut.
After Nedrick reveals to the Halidom Party how Bahamut is the Origin, he prepares to use the dawnshard to complete his pact before Zethia and Ilia reveal a detail he had left out in which he would use Bahamut's power to grant everybody the ability to shapeshift. Due to how dangerous shapeshifting is, the party oppose with Zethia following Nedrick, claiming the other half of the pact herself.
Nedrick attempts to fight the party only for Bahamut to take control and start opening rifts with intent on destroying the world just to prevent The Progenitor from awakening. In order to prevent Bahamut from taking Nedrick's body, the party enters Nedrick's mind and helps him get his pact with Bahamut fully set. However, with Nedrick now in control, Bahamut moves on to taking over Zethia.
After working on freeing Zethia from Bahamut's grip, they discover that Bahamut wasn't completely responsible for controlling Zethia and that an unknown entity had forced him to do so at that moment.
Advent of the Origin
Eventually, they find out that Bahamut is not actually the Origin, but the one who took control was. After unlocking the primal forms of the greatwyrms, the party releases Origa and gets ready to fight Satan. As they prepare to do so though, the Origin takes control of Zethia once again and destroys Satan as a sacrifice to allow him to roam the world once more. Now back with an actual physical body, Bahamut prepares to destroy the world in order to get rid of the Progenitor. Knowing this would kill them as well, the party faces off against the Origin only for Bahamut to use his powers to erase Zethia from existence.
He then causes the world to become a mess that the heroes get separated. After Euden manages to get the team back together, they confront Bahamut once more who attempts to erase them all. This time, Euden takes the blow and begins to remember Zethia. With this Zethia and Zena come back to life due to the contradiction of memories, and the party pushes forward in their fight against the Origin.
Euden and the party's attacks begin to work on Bahamut, whose spirit begins to split from Satan. Just as he is about to attack the party once again, he stops as Satan's body cannot handle Bahamut's power and is starting to degrade. Bahamut vanishes and the party is returned to Grastaea. Euden comments that he felt Bahamut's animosity towards the party leaving him, which he theorises is because he recognises Euden and the party as strong enough to defeat Xenos and protect possibility.
