Penguin PrinceA minion only for the dedicated Lords of Verminion players, this is rewarded for winning 4 different Lord of Verminion tournaments by a double-digit victories.
Wind-up AerithOriginally exclusively available at Fan Festivals, this item is now available on Mog Station. However, there’s speculation that it may return to Fan Festivals in the future.
Giant BeaverThe Giant Beaver is a rare minion, if only because of how few people complete the quest line needed to buy it. After completing the unique Giant Beaver quest line, you can buy this minion from the Giant Beaver. There’s also a Golden Beaver, which is a reward for completing the The Shifting Oubliettes Of Lyhe Ghiah Treasure Map Dungeon.
HedgehogletThe Hedgehoglet is a rare drop from the The Lost Canals of Uznair, The Hidden Canals Of Uznair, and The Shifting Altars Of Uznair. These dungeons are only accessible from Treasure Maps, and only allow access on a random chance.
Wind-up ChimeraThe Wind-up Chimera is only available through crafting as a high level Weaver. However, many weavers also sell this minion. It sells for around 50,000 Gil on most servers, but can fluctuate.
Tora-jiroA reward for Hunt Train savants, Tora-jiro can be yours for 800 Centurio Seals. This tiny tiger is adorable, and it’s surprising more people don’t make the effort to grab them!
Wind-up TonberryTonberry’s are the bane of many Final Fantasy player’s existence. But in Final Fantasy 14, this little guy is pretty cute, if not a bit hard to find. He’s a reward and a rare drop in The Palace of the Dead, from Timeworn Boarskin Map treasure chests, and completing the Aquapolis Treasure Hunt dungeon.

One way to grab minions is to pre-order FFXIV: Endwalker. Find out more with What are the preorder bonuses for Final Fantasy 14: Endwalker? on Pro Game Guides.
