Carbuncle (カーバンクル [carbuncle] in Japanese) is the summon of Light and Protection. Most often he does not have any attacking moves, only defending ones. The most usual color is green, although others exist as well, especially as variations triggered by some transformation.
Several times, Carbuncle has appeared as a monster instead.
