Carbuncle is a Summon in Final Fantasy VII Remake. Carbuncle is a small four-legged mystical being that is capable of providing support-based buffs to the team such as shielding the party. In the remake, summons are called and will fight by your side, they cannot be controlled but if the player's ATB gauge fills, they can use it to issue the summon to use one of its abilities. Once the summon's gauge is depleted, they will unleash their signature or ultimate attack before disappearing from the battlefield.
