No Cloud or Squall?
Snookies12  +   758d ago
Cloud didn't have all too much character development. Though I agree Squall should have been there. He actually changed throughout that game.

Kefka being number one is spot-on though. That dude actually accomplished his goals, unlike most villains.

Both were one dimensional. The quiet, angst ridden protagonist never appealed to me. I hate in rpg's when a character continually responds to someone else with a "..."
guitarded77  +   758d ago
Yeah, and where is Black Mage

and Warrior???

Both very deep characters.

Why is Lighting here? there's nothing interesting about her.
Godmars290  +   758d ago
Because not everyone who voted hates FF13.

I do, but then I didn't vote.
Heisenburger  +   758d ago
I feel ya. I meant specifically throughout XIII. There are a lot of moments, especially with Hope. Example: Her admitting that she kept charging into fights because she didn't want to face losing Serah. And her feeling responsible for it. She opens up with Snow, also. When you understand how much she is hurting it makes her a much more compelling character, especially on a second play through.
Heisenburger  +   757d ago
I absolutely agree with that. It took, in my opinion, way too much effort to get the story. The data logs were ridiculous. That's probably why I didn't beat the game until the third time I bought it. Haha
Heisenburger  +   758d ago
Well something being interesting is entirely subjective. So I can't say you're "wrong".

That being said... She opens up, shows what's going on in her head. Not entirety different from Squall. Her closed off attitude makes a bit of sense.

But then again I actually beat the game so...
Godmars290  +   758d ago
When does she open up?

If you say in one of the sequels and not in FF13 proper, outside of the game she first appears in, then you're missing the point.
rextraordinaire  +   758d ago
Yeah, those scenes with Hope are pretty touching actually.

I believe that people who say lightning has no character ark didn't make it very far in the game.
Godmars290  +   758d ago
I put in 50 hours. Guess I just stopped caring. Got sick of having to actively invest in the story rather than have the story attempt to get me invested in it.

My favorite would be Tidus.

really love FF VIII, and IX
Tyrone_Biggums  +   758d ago
Lightning number 1-10.
DVAcme  +   758d ago
Wakka and Lightning? List=FAIL. Pretty much anyone from the cast of 6 could replace those. And no Bartz? No Zidane? NO GILGAMESH?

Though Kefka at #1 really was the best choice.
Murad  +   756d ago
I really loved Gilgamesh within FF 5. The poor fool kept getting himself into a mess and getting his a** beaten over and over by Bartz. Also, ya, I agree, I get the feeling people really haven't played all of the Final Fantasy throughly, since the blonde chick whose name im forgetting within FF 6 is like years ahead of Lightning, especially after dooms day happens.
DVAcme  +   756d ago
Celes's story with Cid and getting the team back together after Kefka destroys the world is one of the most dramatic stories in the FF saga as a whole. Oh, and FF6 has my absolute favorite FF character ever: SABIN. Mutherfucker suplexed a train!
McScroggz  +   758d ago
Gilgamesh, especially from Final Fantasy V.
mic_cala  +   758d ago
Auron def was my fav ff character!!

Dont know about wakka or lightning though.
Murad  +   756d ago
I honestly don't get why Wakka was in this list. I was like, who's Wakka, o, right, the dude who had this weird accent and taught you how to play Blitzball, which I never played. :P
LAWSON72  +   758d ago
Auron is a badass, so he is #1. Then Sepiroth because he too is just a badass
I actually really liked Sazh in FF13, almost as much Lightning who I thought was a great character. No I do not think she needed multiple sequels. In 13 I liked Caius and Snow in the newer games because Troy Baker is awesome and who ever voiced Caius sounds pretty epic though it did not match the character IMO.
Wakka was a pretty good character he was sometimes childish but also at times very mature and respectful. He was interesting throughout the entire game.
I could go on FF has tons of great characters

Sazh is actually awesome. Some people complain that he is stereotyped, but I don't see how. To me he was a very credible father character, just getting his kid to the amusement park then stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Sad that he didn't get much screen time in the sequel.
LAWSON72  +   758d ago
Wasnt he DLC or something? I dont even remember him being in FF13-2
Murad  +   756d ago
You know what the problem with Sazh was? The dude literally only had 10 minutes worth of emotions throughout the game. Hell, I think Gilgamesh from FF 5 made more of an impression than he did. Sazh showed up, did some fighting, made a few remarks, and then got captured and then I can't even recall what happened to him at the end, but that's literally no way for a FF character to have so little screen time.
rextraordinaire  +   756d ago

Aren't you mixing Sazh with Snow?

Sazh has a whole lot of screen time. All those chapters with Vanille. How she hides form him that she made his son a l'cie. How he has difficulty to cope with that news.

Snow gets kidnapped then comes back muuuch later, but Sazh doesn't.
rextraordinaire  +   758d ago
Yeah some DLC regarding Serendipity. Nothing to see there really.

But he is in XIII-2 even without DLC' at the end, helping with the final fight string.
nope111  +   758d ago
Quistis is the best because she's the hot one with a whip.
Basch is second because he looks like Brad Pitt.
Ashe is thrid because she stole the MC role from a bitch.
Sabin is forth because he suplex a motherf***ing demon train.
Shadow is fith because he's a ninja with a dog.
Auron is sixth because he wears his coat like a boss.
Kain is seventh because he's voiced by Liam O'Brien in Dissidia.
Tellah is eighth because SPOONY BARD.
Tifa is ninth because tits.
Anima is tenth because it looks like a fish-taco hybrid thing....

Vivi! :D
kewlkat007  +   758d ago
I'm sorry although you played as Cloud we all wish we could use Sepiroth just a little bit...he was more interesting.
nigelp520  +   758d ago
No Laguna Loire?
LoliconMaster  +   758d ago
Yuffie and Rikku cuz them underage girls! <3
BigDollarZoe954  +   758d ago
not a bad list everyone has there opinions but no Vincent Valentine come on
Murad  +   756d ago
I'm actually surprised he isn't on the list, since Square Enix very much disagrees with the fact that he's not a great character. I mean the dude literally had a game based around him in order to explore his mysterious past, which I got to say, the gameplay sucked, and the story was not meant to be with the gameplay. However, besides that, his story was like 10x Clouds story and almost nearly at how insane Kefka was.

Kefka Number 1 Villan ever created.
