5 Dumbest Final Fantasy Villains

TieryasXu.com: Final Fantasy has some great villains. Sephiroth, Sin, and Kefka come to mind. But for every embodiment of evil, there are the villains who are so driven by ambition, they lose sight of common-sense. When I say, “dumb,” for the list, I don’t mean they’re badly designed or even dumb ideas for characters. Some of these characters are pretty amazing and prove integral to the plot, their inclusion a necessary piece. But their “lack of vision” causes them to get seriously messed up or in some cases, killed. View these as cautionary moral tales. Spoilers abound!!! (Culture, Final Fantasy, Retro)

i dont think seymour belongs on there, he's pretty smart for surviving like 5 defeats.

don cornio easily belongs on there.

I think its the very fact that he's defeated several times that's the point. It, having a villain get beaten only to walk away and come back later, was also an early sign of Square's poor story telling.

And of course this short of thing has been happening since FFVI.

"A man who was once a fellow SeeD, this guy takes more whoopings than almost any other FF villain except Seymour (who I’ll get to). Lackey of Ultimecia, he gets beaten at the Timber TV station, at Deling City, in the Galbadian Garden Invasion, and near the end of the game. Add incompetence to the list. What is his ultimate goal? To prove he’s better than Squall? He already has Rinoa’s attention affection"

How does that make him dumb

He wants to proove himself that he's better then everyone and not getting to become a SeeD made him even more annoyed.

He's like any other villain out there....keep on going despite being defeated a ton of times.

I love how FFVIII fans keep making up excuses for the game's terrible characters.

I love how FFVIII's haters lack the capacity to understand even the most basic aspects of the game.
user5467007  +   1027d ago
I love how FF7 fans or FF8 haters like your self try make FF8 look crap when most of the characters in FF8 are better then FF7s

Squalls character development in FF8 is better then any other main FF character.

I love how FFVIII fans assume that those who don't like it are FFVII fans. FFVIII is bad, but FFVII is even worse.

I love how people lack the capacity to understand that other people can have their own opinion...
Nerdmaster  +   1027d ago
I love how people don't realize that when they try to shut anyone up by saying "people have their own opinions", they are doing exactly what they are supposedly condemning. It's my opinion that your opinion sucks, and I'm free to say it.

I was expecting more from this article.

I'm going to say it...

Kefka.

Yep. I hated that I was fighting this insane, stupid looking clown idiot.

My opinion of course.

Seifer is not dumb. He was following his dream, he had the balls to try anything to achieve it, how many of us can say we have tried to reach what we want. To call him dumb is to over look his hard work and determination to strive to be the best.

A better ff 8 dummy is Biggs and Wedge.

seifer and seymour on the list?? those 2 were really good and their character added to the goodness of ff8 and ffx
