FFXIV's current raid tier the Deltascape features bosses based on enemies from the final dungeons in V.
Normal mode has Alte Roite (oddly in his Jura Aevis form though...), Catastrophe, Halicarnassus, and Exdeath.
In the Savage difficulty mode Exdeath transforms into Neo Exdeath partway through the fight. The transition is pretty cool to see as a fan of V: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCA1PDJid10

Okay, that video is really, really cool. They do such a good job in making XIV interesting in little ways like that, or at least that's my impression as a non-player. Catastrophe has always been one of my favorite FFV monsters, so I looked up video of that too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31Xrn2Rk-gA

Thanks for sharing!

Glad you enjoyed it!

I'd say presentation and nods to previous entries in the series are two of XIV's strongest points. It's always fun seeing old enemies in a new context.
