Favorite Character(s)

Post by The Cap'n on Thu Feb 25, 2010 1:56 pm

Who is/are your favorite character(s) in the series? Simple, tell us who and why brief or descriptive.

PS: Don't go "Oh I hate that character!" No one gives a shit unless its purely a hate forum but I doubt anyone here will ever make one. Just keep it a like forum and just agree to stuff unless someone (Most likely me) says something like this certain character is the best character Square has made (And I'm pretty sure people know who it is with me).

#10. Cid Highwind- Loud, obnoxious and a short temper to boot but one of the worlds greatest pilots to ever live and the first man to enter space. I love his way of speaking and the way he runs is hilarious puffing his chest out in front of him. Hate how the spinoffs and Kingdom Hearts made him a hick and not as much as the funny dick he was before. I've been replaying FF7 recently and Cid has now taken over as my favorite playable character with Red XIII and Yuffie after him. But don't get confused with the guy at my #7 spot as my favorite character in FF7, because he and his team deserve their own spinoffs and are the series coolest characters.

#9. Freya Crescent- Freya has this romantic story that could have made her one of the best characters in the series but because of FF9's rushed development, Freya's romantic storyline with her boyfriend was shot down the drain as soon as she found out Fratley lost his memory.

#8. Ultros- Yay, Uncle Ulty is here to make everyone smile... well... not really. Just remember Sea Food Soup is not on the menu when Ultros makes an appearance. Ultros is so comical and literally comes from nowhere but instead of cringing with his appearance, it's a treat when he shows up and just tries to get some good eats. We all miss Ultros and his FFXII counterpart sucked so here's to hoping Ultros will show up again.

#7. Rude- ...

#6. Jecht- Charismatic, a determined but misunderstood father, and tough guy. Jecht is so cool it's scary.

#5. Gilgamesh- Ah, my favorite villain in the entire series. Gilgamesh won my heart as soon as he made his apperance in FF5 because everything in the game was fucking pissing me off from its bland story but as soon as Battle on the Big Bridge started, Gilly won me over. Gilgamesh is a great supportive villain and is rivaled with everyone's favorite Uncle Ulty but Gilly just appealed to me more. First, Gilgamesh made a little bit more sense to me because he's Exdeath's lackey while Ultros is a random octopus who's hungry, which still works. Gilgamesh's personality is ridiculous and because he's such a bumpkin, he's more of a burden to his boss than the main party. Gilly reappeared in many other FF games, especially in the remakes, but I love his redesigns for FF8, FF9 and FF12. FF9's Gilly was a let down but FF12's amazing John DiMaggio voiced Gilly more than made up for him.

#4. Sabin Rene Figaro- The younger Figaro Twin, Sabin was my main tank in FF6 as soon as he joined the party. Battle wise, I love putting in the Blitz commands and wish FF did more creative ways of using attacks like FF6 instead of using the cut and dry Slots and just "PRESS X" to use an attack. Sabin's personality is a lot like my own as I'm very hardheaded but I'm a good guy... most of the time. Story wise, Sabin did have a pretty deep story as he ran away from home after losing his father then goes to train as a monk to protect Edgar in the future but loses his Master, Duncan (who was like a second father to him), to his fellow trainee. Sabin's difficulty coming back to Figaro was not what I was exactly hoping for. Yes, if you bring both of the Figaro's to Figaro Castle and you spend the night you get that cut scene of how the future ruler was decided which was pretty deep for both of the brother's conflicting characters but I wished to see a little more of Sabin's difficulties... if he really had any left, I have not played FF6 in a long ass time so I might replay and get some of the drama I'm wanting.

#3. Terra Branford- My favorite female character in the series and an overall great character imo. Terra has been brainwashed for her entire life after being taked by the Empire and forced to become a Magitek Warrior. I love how she really questions her existence and is very concerned about getting the answers she wants on how to live as a human because she never experienced any emotions like love or hate. Battle wise, Terra was a damn versatile woman. Pretty good physical, good magic and above average defense so you could make her anything you wanted. Her Trance form wasn't just some throw away ability like it was in FF9 before Kuja tranced, but it was a major importance to the story because of her Esper lineage.

#2. Vivi Orunitia- I don't care what anyone says, Vivi is the most emotionally powerful character in FF history. Trying to top Vivi is impossible to me. Vivi is a prototype to a race of magic golems that were created for the sole purpose of causing chaos and sending souls to the Iifa Tree which only have a life span of ONE YEAR, but since Vivi is a prototype he is able to live longer but still has an expiration date. He will never reach adulthood, he will never get to grow old or anything and when your a 9 (Is what many believe his age to be because you know the game is FF9 lolololol) year old kid, that's a fucking cannonball tied to your ankles ready to be thrown in the ocean. Vivi is devastated when he and Zidane stumble upon the factory in Dali and that completely causes him to question existence. He never understands death, even when Quan (who was raising Vivi to be eaten I believe is what one of the rumors is but loves him like his own child) dies, Vivi is so confused as to how to react. Vivi constantly goes through hard decisions especially when he's forced to kill his own kind which can really scar a kid and just becomes so confused he doesn't know what he's fighting for. Choosing to stop all the mist was a big decision to him because no more mist means no more Black Mages so Vivi is the killer of his own race. Then of course he's petrified after finding out he had an expiration date but keeps that piece of information hidden from the others mainly because he didn't want them to worry about him so when he died, it was probably a huge blow to the main cast but then Vivi finds a way to make more Black Mages (Big Plot Hole, how could he pork someone when his balls haven't dropped... in fact does he even have balls?!)

#1. Amarant Coral- .....I really am not in the mood to go on my Amarant rant right now so I'll post it later. Very Happy

1) Cloud Strife (orignal) - Most of you know that he is my favourite character so I'm going to keep this brief. I found Cloud (original, the compilation version can p**s off) to be a great character, he is caring but distant and is haunted by his past which in the end he puts behind him (by killing Sephiroth). I dont know why he became such a cry baby since he got over Aerith before Disc 2 (he had an emotional reaction and then pushed it back instead of moaning all the way to the North Crater like compilation Cloud would). Favourite moment is when rejoins the group and decides he has to see it out to the end.

2) Auron - Cool, confident, wise and loyal to the end. Can't NOT like him. At his best during the reveal scene at Zanarkand

3) Squall - I loved how he starts off as a loner and the completly falls head over heels for Rinoa (which is why the scene where he is carrying her across that massive bridge and of course the moment in space are two of my favourite Final Fantasy moments). Also I could relate as I was a loner for awhile, so I knew exactly what he was thinking.

4) Tifa - Sweet, kind, caring and she can kick some major a** I adored her character and I still do. My favourite moment of hers is the moment between her and Cloud at the end of Disc 2.

5) Jecht - It starts off with him coming across as an a** and thats because its from Tidus perspective but when we learn more about Jecht we disover he's actually a caring Dad who just wants to make sure his son can handle himself.

Heroes
Cecil Harvey: always been my favorite since 1996, I got my first SNES and FFIV (II, technically) was my first game for it. I loved Cecil's character and he's been somewhat of an idol for forever. Smile

Rikku: Love at first sight hit me hard when I first saw Rikku, noted, she was in a diving suit at the time...

Kain: Technically a villain, but who cares, he's a hero at first and he's a badass. He's pretty much Cecil, except he's more of a teacher than a student.

Jecht: I don't care what Dissidia says, I consider Jecht a hero. He's a great dad, badass and drunk, triple threat. Very Happy

Zack Fair: He's honorable, brave, and a bit childish, I always thought Cloud should've acted more like him instead.


Villains:
Garland: The very first FF Villain, he deserves the FF throne instead of Sephiroth.

Golbez: I liked him better in the original IV, but Golbez is still a cool character, he tries to teach Cecil that you sometimes have to battle someone dear to you if you have to.

Kefka: There really isn't a cooler villain, but sometimes he should be a little serious.

Chaos: Last but not least, the boss I've yet to kill in FFI. lol

Re: Favorite Character(s)

Post by The Cap'n on Sun Jul 18, 2010 8:58 pm

I never said my favorite...

Amarant Coral

This comes as a shock to many FF fans because Amarant is very much hated. In fact, next to Quina, Amarant is the most hated character in FF9 from most fans. Let me level with you, at first when I played the game, Amarant was around number 5 or 6 as I ranked the main party to how I like them but as I understood his story I really got into him and to me, no other character could compare to his message. Yes, Amarant is under developed but what most people do not realize is that Amarant does have a deep message in his story. Most characters have a sense of discovery like Amarant but Amarant's character pulls a 180 by the end of the game which a lot of characters could not do or have ever done.

Amarant is not that good guy who has a warm heart, Amarant is in deed a heartless asshole who could care less about the world... when he first joins the party. What Amarant suffers from is his pride as a warrior. All Amarant has going for him is his strength and intimidating stature. Amarant has no family or friends who cared for him so he is a selfish bastard and does not fear saying what is on his mind because his life has been so screwed from others treating him like garbage that it made him what we see today and it's sad. When Amarant is hired by Kuja to work as a security guard, Amarant just saw it as another way to prove to himself that he is the strongest man alive but that's when he meets Zidane and his whole world is changed.

When he is framed by Zidane, Amarant is intrigued because he finally met a man who was able to beat him at something and that was wit. Embarrassed, Amarant wanted revenge. If he could not beat Zidane in wit, he'd do it in battle and that sparks his shift to bounty hunter so he could find Zidane and he finally does and goes straight for him. When he runs into Zidane in Maden Sari, Amarant wants nothing more than his one on one match between them so he can get his pride back for that embarrassing defeat in Treno and lost in a battle of strength. Amarant sees himself as a loser for that and wants nothing more than to die because he has nothing else going for him so he could at least die a warrior but Zidane lets him live.

That is the big development in his character. Because of Amarant's style of life being "the strong live, the weak die," Amarant wants answers as to why Zidane let him live, why he was defeated. When he joins the team, Amarant is the smug ass on the sidelines criticizing everyone and all the plans about stopping Kuja because Amarant has never been so determined to do something until he first met Zidane so everyone just sees him as that pain in the ass who's slowing the party down with his hateful attitude. In another way, Amarant may seem a little enveous of the gang because they have so much going for them when Amarant has nothing.

Finally, Amarant has had enough of Zidane's caring, enough of fighting for a greater good and finally realizes that there was one thing that they have not fought for and that was a battle on ideals. Amarant challenges Zidane in Ipsen's Castle as to if working alone or working in a team will get things done faster and more efficiant. Zidane agrees.

When Amarant beats Zidane in a race to the 4 mirrors, he finally regains his pride as a warrior and leaves knowing he finally beat Zidane at something but then Amarant is attacked and almost dies for being alone in a very dangerous place. When Zidane comes back to save him, Amarant is destroyed. Everything, losing to him two times and owing him his life twice, Amarant's mind is so confused and warped he doesn't know what to do but that sparks his new purpose in life. When Zidane saves Amarant, he gets something he's never had before in his entire life and that is a friend. Amarant finally was accepted by people who really care for him and became a member of a team.

That results in Amarant's pretty quick character change from big asshole to somewhat of a dick that no longer fights for himself but for the team. Amarant finally has a purpose and regains his pride in a whole new way and that is why I like Amarant. To go from a complete loner character who is full on himself to an actually somewhat caring and wise warrior who fights for what is right and for those who cannot fight rather than for feeding his ego.

Re: Favorite Character(s)

Post by Erel on Sun Jul 18, 2010 11:13 pm

Vincent Valentine - So the dark and dreary secret character of FFVIIw falls on my list to be one of my favorites. Although his limit break sucks ass, his tendency to be subliminaly put as one of the strongest FFVII character always sparked my interest. His presence in Advent Children as being smooth and untoucheable, cold and collect was short lived because of Dirge of Cerebrus. Although that game was mediocre and made Vincent a complete emo guy in the beginning, his show of power in the end proved my theory that he could be one of the strongest in FFVII. You can't go wrong with a guy with three barreled sawed off shot gun and a cape that Slithers like Spawn's.


Tifa Lockheart - Hott just to say that first. Badass fighter despite that she wasn't my strongest melée nor my magic caster in FFVII file. But as a character, I like her personality and the way she is. Tifa is a sweet heart which I adore in a girl, but when push comes to shove she has no problem going fisticuffs on a random opponent. She stayed true and faithful to Cloud despite his emo and triangle love scenario. And hey, let's not forget the fact that she wore a cowgirl outfit and looked hott while doing so! And she's a martial artist who had the aspiration to get stronger so she would be able to fight for herself and those she cares for is always a good perk for a good character in my opinion.


Sabin Figaro -The other half of the Figaro Brothers. The martial artist of FFVI. well as a playeable character, my Sabin could handle Kefka's first three forms with his melée tendencies. His Bum Rush took out many unfortunate random encounters. So as a character, he had no match in my team aside from Shadow and Terra. But like Tifa, Sabin has the 'Strive to be better, Fist Law' thing which I like a whole lot. To be honest though, I don't remember much of his story and character progression, but I do remember that he was always that kind of character that stuck to me because his personality was always the same throughout the whole game which was sarcastic, strong, and had every quality to be a leader despite the fact that Edgar ended up ruling Figaro instead of him.


Oerba Dia Vanille - okay so Vanille is the new Rikku of FFXIII. hott as all hell is all I have to say. Well as a playeable character, Vanille isn't as strong of a magic hitter compared to Hope, however she gets more life and she has certain things as a saboteur that Fang doesn't get which makes her slightly better. She's a good medic and ravager and that's about it on my book. Making her a commando and a sentinel is no bueno since she isn't a melée in my game or in general so a magic hitter is how she stays. Well as a character she is almost like Rikku to the tee. She is very playful, bouncy, giggly, and energetic. She keeps a deep dark secret which has a butterfly effect in the FFXIII story which I won't spoil. She narratates the game and her voice isn't as annoying as most people complain but, hey, I already expect Vanille haters because there are a dozen Rikku haters. She stays the same fr the most part, but her whole bouncy personality is mostly a facade for what she hides. It's kind of cool to see the contrast of her personality through certain scenes and that moment between her and Sazh remains to be one of my top favorite moments in Final Fantasy. Then of course he ending scene which I will not spoil here. And it took me a long time to realize that her weapon is a staff... But with some creativity. As for her outifit, mmmmmmmm.... Although I can tell it'll be a pain to strip them off.


T.G. Cid - Yes a Final Fantasy Tactics character. I consider Tactics to be a true FF despite it being a different genre. So what else is there to say about T.G. Cid aside from the fact that he is a heavy hitting character right from the start. He comes equipped with Excalibur, strong weapon first off AND it has the haste status affect. Not to mention he comes wih almost every Special Knight abilities. From Stasis Sword, to Shellbust Stab, even all the way to Gafgarion's Dark Knight skills which heals HP and MP. He is a badass all he way and he only downfall is you get him so late. Oh well. As character he has very little interaction until the end of the fourth chapter. He was always in the background trying to do the right things for the good of the people of Ivalice. I was hoping he was going to be the Cid in FFXII, unfortunately, he was not. Oh well. He remains to be a strong inspiring character to me.


Shadow- Oh yes. The FFVI character that remains in my opinion to be the best Ninja to have ever entered the FF world. Yuffie and Edge can kiss Shadow's ass cause he will rape both of them. One of the best theme song for a character, and of course one of the best description of for a character: "That's Shadow, he slit his mom's throat for a nickel!" or something like that. Then of course as a playeable character, his skills made him very useful in the beginning and all the way to the end. The throw skills kept me alive during the island before Kekfka took over the world, then his elemental skills also helped water down enemies that are weak against certain elements. Then his dog, Forgot the dog's name but he did major damage!


Terra Branford - One of the first gals to introduce the idea that a female can be a lead character when needs be. Terra made herself known in the classic FFVI as a half Esper and Half human. It's a known fact that everyone in FFVI can learn magic through equipping Espers, however Terra was one of the first to have magic as a default skill. As she progresses with the game, Terra's strength with it also kept up with her character growth which kept her as one of my first few preferences on the frontline as both magic [mostly] and a little melée. Another intruigung thing about Terra was the fact that her half Esper actually plays a role in the way you use her [much later on] because she actually turns into an Esper with beefed up stats. A very bright pink Esper with very pointy breasts that kicks major ass. I think throughout the game there were very many talks on who is the main character, however the story revolved on Terra for the most part... That and Dissidia pretty much cleared up who is the main character of FFVI. I think there was a wAy to beat FFVI without Terra if one chose not to grab her from the orphans. But why would anyone pass such a badass female character?


Rikku - hhhhmmmm...... Rikku. I fell completely in love with Rikku when she came kicking ass in the X-2 concert and then she smiled at the guard before laying him to rest with an elbow... Okay so... Honestly, Rikku wasn't my favorite playeable character in FFX. She had unique skills of course but I always just used Auron, Tidus, and of course Yuna over her. I'm FFX-2 all 3 characters were pretty generic so.... She wasn't any special and the fact that there were only three of them to pick from gave me no choice but to use her. Where she lacks with the playability, Rikku makes up as a character with the whole jovial and upbeat, hyperactive and ditzy personality, mixed in with the push comes to shove kick ass moments makes her a perfect candidate for a female favorite Final Fantasy character. Okay so after two years her character didn't grow much as it would seem, but her choice of clothing, or lack of makes it obvious that she gained confidence and grew somewhat especially on the rough moments. She had those times on FFX especially when Tidus found out that Yuna was going to die on the pilgrimage, but Rikku had more of those momenta during X-2. On the bigger note, Rikku had no real major connection aside from the fact that she was Yuna's cousin and she was the one that showed the sphere to Yuna about Shuyin. I think that's one thing that lacked for Rikku, she couldve been given a more major role in X-2 since she was the other third of the trio. I did like the weapon of choice this time around since it were red and gold daggers. The hilt was quite different and I can imagine that they can also be used to cut and penetrate. Much more of a unique weapon than her gloves back in FFX. Did I also mention about her yellow thong? Ahem.


Lightning - I know her real name. Revealing it won't spoil anything, but for those who haven't got to that I will leave it a mystery yet still. So on to Lightning, hhhhmmmm.... As the so called female Cloud, I would disagree with that statement. Why? Cloud is a pussie. Lightning has a pussie, but she is a badass that Cloud never was. From the beginning of the game and all the way to the start, Lightning had a very straight forward mind set. Yes here was a few bumps and burns and some slight change of heart, but Lightning's overall persona can be described as strong, destructive, and caring. Let's not forget that Her fighting skills and style was unwavering. She didn't flinch to use that gun blade to decimate anyone who came in her way. Even when she was out matched she got back on her feet to repoint that blade right back at her opponents. She was always in lead in battle to strut her stuff. Hands down one of the best female characters of FF and possibly on my top five as a lead character. And to my knowledge, one of the few female characters of FF made to look girly girl and still kick ass. A hott female soldier wearing a mini skirt in battle. Ain't that something? And that scene with her punching Snow twice... Comical and entertaining!

So, on to her as a playeable character. Lightning is a strong Commando and Ravager although a master of either. She hits equally hard on both to say she is definetly worth to use on both roles. Her as a medic was only a back up in my opinion. She didn't have the strongest cures unlike Vanille and Hope, however she still holds raise and esuna which is a positive. But I rarely used her to heal. Being shrouded with the element of lightning [rightfully so] she hits anyone who is weak against the element hard! And she also has all he elemental strike abilities so she is pretty versatile. The "Army of One" ability she gets may start weak for something that took all ATB, but once she has good equipment like her Omega Weapon, not only does that skill stagger quickly, it also takes decent damage. Super helpful when LionHeart is turned into her Omega Weapon. Her sub jobs are only useful for stat boost but I used her as a synergist quite often. She has protect, shell, brave, faith, all the "en" element boosters and haste which doesn't make her as good as Sazh but good enough for certain battles. All and all I fell in love with Lightning's character through her looks, personality, and as a playeable character as much as I fell in love with the game she came from. If she represents the new era of future Final Fantasy leads then I think we are in a good ride for the new dawn.


Auron - "This is it! Now is the time to choose! Die and be free of pain or live and fight your sorrow! Now is the time to shape your story! Your fate is in your hands!"

Auron died before FFX started. He died watching The Summoner and a Friend die in an effort to continue the tradition of their faith. A tradition that was nothing but a fallacy. But death couldn't stop this Ronin from fulfilling the promises that he made.

A badass Ronin whose always headstrong into the mission whose own death couldn't stop him stepping into the battlefield to fuck shit up. He reminds me of Cyan after death with the badass skills of Sabin. He has the straight forward edge of Lightning and one of the coolest voice to fill in that cold, battle worn expression on his face. Honestly for some reason, I can't state as much about him because I don't think I need to. He is after all one of the main reason that most people can actually withstand FFX {those who aren't fans of FFX for some odd reason}.

As a character, can I say 'Shooting Star' was badass? Then 'Tornado'. The whole sake spit on the sword thing is just plain badass. His overdrives are button interactive like Zell's in FFVIII which I always thought was fun as hell. He's always been a power hitter which made him a good combo when I had Lulu and Yuna on the team since he was the only Melee I needed {of course when range was needed thats when Wakka was there}. Once I got Auron in the team, never stopped using him until I had to, but I always made do with him in my team regardless.

A hard hitter. A masterless Samurai. A man who won't let death kill his honor. A man whose sword hits like the shooting stars. A man whose speech still rings in my head whenever I do ANY FF boss battle. He was one of those characters that I still wish would have more appearances in future games.

Re: Favorite Character(s)

Post by Claire on Mon Sep 20, 2010 4:36 am

Reorganizing favorites list, been playing some older FFs and starting to like others more than some. Rikku is no longer in my list, just kind of lost my infatuation for her. My infatuation for every game character has faded, actually. Neutral

10: Gabranth (XII)
I feel like a damn hypocrite liking Gabranth and hating Cloud. But Gabranth is cool for a few reasons. First, got a badass looking helmet, I prefer Zargabaath's, but Gabby's is eye-catching. He's got a brief, but memorable boss fight, with some awesome attacks. His voice actually doesn't get old after two seconds, more like 5, I still prefer it to Keith Ferguson. The only thing I don't like about him is the fact that I never saw him smile at all, even briefly.

9: Adelbert Steiner:
He reminds me of Gilgamesh, only he actually is trying to protect someone and honor his duty as a knight. Try as he might, sometimes he gets dragged into some shit he never even thought could happen. All my friends just consider him a pointless jackass, but I kinda like him. And in combat, he's a fuckin tank.

8: Genesis Rhapsodos:
I'm not sure it's exactly fair voting for a spin-off character, but Genesis is a character that I just consider captivating. Maybe it's the way he reads the poem, maybe it's cause he's a jackass, or maybe it's that damn red coat, I don't know, but I just like Genesis. :p

7: Gilgamesh:
Well done, Cap'n, you've converted me to Gilgamism. Neutral I never got to the Battle on the Big Bridge in V, I'm still stuck on the ship against that one woman...but I managed to get to him in XII and his bumbling Bravado is just...touching. Even after you beat him, he sneaks by you to reclaim his weapon. lol

6: O'aka XXIII
Honestly, I didn't think much of this guy till I matured enough to learn how much of a heartfelt smartass he was. He protected Yuna even after she was convicted by Yevon and considered a fugitive. And he STILL gave business after being released. Or rather, his brother did.

5: Moogles
Can't get enough of Kupo, my friend. These guys are cute and useless till VI, they save Terra's ass from werewolves. I hear in Tactics, they're pretty useful as snipers. Very Happy

4: Kain Highwind: (going off of assumptions, atm)
Same reasons as Cecil, only Kain was roped into working for Golbez and forced to fight Cecil, one of the most heartfelt moments in FF I've ever witnessed. I'm pleased to hear he might be in Dissidia 2.

3: Chaos/Garland:
Unusual, I know, but I finally got the chance to play the original NES version of FF not long ago and Chaos just has that diabolical plan that...only a few of the villains come close. Garland is in my tops simply because he IS the original villain of Final Fantasy, but he's also how I envision a knight and his honor (or lack thereof). It kind of sucks how he's only a puppet of Chaos, makes him less cool.

2: Cecil:
Again, total hypocrite, but I have a feel for knights, it just happens sometimes. I have my reasons for liking Cecil and it's not because he's just plain and simple awe-inspiring, but he throws off a vibe of just a strong-willed, honorable knight that you can just listen to his story (unless Lowenthal is talking for him). Plus, the relationship between him and Kain just makes me feel for him. It's hard to word how Cecil is my favorite hero, especially since I haven't even beaten IV. Neutral

1: Kuja
What a fuckin' magnificent villain! Conceited, power hungry and jealous? I haven't gotten particularly far in IX yet, but I've seen Kuja a few times and his flowery speech and overall jackassness is just something I can't ignore. When I compare him to X's Seymour Guado, it's a tough tie, but I think Kuja just...wins.
