    wait, Shiva lesbian motorcycles?

    Not just lesbians - sisters! The Shiva Summon is actually two idential female Eidelons which after you obtain them, form a motorcycle by locking their bodies together in what can only be described as scissoring.

    Also, when you summon Odin he can apparently fight alongside Lightning, or turn into a horse and she rides him for an attack.

    Isn't that how all of them work?

    Like, first you summon them as a separate entity, then for their "limit break" they go into vehicle mode and you ride around on them for a big super ultimate attack.

    Good question. I'm not sure to be honest. I think that it might have some novelty value to it if they all turned into some vehicle that pumped the summoner stats and abilities while they rode it, or transformed into a weapon of some kind that dealt a devestating attack. I don't have too much info on the other summons in the game though.

    Lesbo-sister biker chicks may be completely gratiutous, but perhaps we're not looking at it in the right way. Maybe the Eidelons only transform into things based on what their summoners desire.

    For example, Lightning enjoys fighting, but is also a girl, so it would make sense that Odin starts out as a badass warrior but can also turn into a pretty pony. Snow on the other hand is a typical alpha male who not only likes motorcycles, but gets turned on by the idea of two hot(cold?) chicks doing each other. In a moment of pure genius, he manages to combine the two concepts into the sluttiest chopper ever imagined.

    Hmmm, it seems they keep making the summon animations more and more elaborate each time. I wouldn't be surprised if, in a future game, you spend 20 minutes fighting a boss battle, with 19 minutes just summon animations.

    I don't mind elaborate summon animations, so long as there's an in-game option to toggle them on and off.

    Also anything can be explained. Perhaps Vanille likes cute animals, but also likes to blow things up.

    Eh, mercenary, sure. But Samurai weren't swords for hire.

    Samurai in service to a clan were typically paid in rice, with those serving territorial lords also being granted land.
