The Five Lamest Final Fantasy Characters

GameInformer- Few thrills in gaming can compare to recruiting an awesome character in an RPG. On the flip side, few disappointments are greater than being saddled with a total load. Fans embrace Final Fantasy for its exceptional stories and characters, but this classic franchise doesn’t always get it right. These are five cases where Final Fantasy gave players less then they deserved in the ally department. (Culture, Final Fantasy IV, Final Fantasy V, Final Fantasy VI, Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy XIII)

Yay Hope is the picture! Man I wanted to throw him off a cliff...
user5467007  +   895d ago
I know right

"Wahhh my mom died so I'm going to try and kill the guy who tried to save her"

<Breaks down and falls to the ground for the 100th time>

If I was Snow I would of beaten that kid....with a broom

Urgh....I hate kids in JRPGs, they always come off as annoying or cheesy and ruin the story. Cooke and Mack ruined Lost Oyssey and those kids in Blue Dragon....GOD, don't get me started on them

Hahaha, I'd pay to see Snow beating Hope with a broom. That should be DLC...

The chick is Last of Us ipretty cool. But thats not an JRPG
Ben_Grimm  +   895d ago
Not to mention that little girl in Star Ocean with the horrible english voice over. The PS3 version is miles better just because you can switch to japanese voices and not have understand her lame voice.

Yes and Hope got on my nerves also.
goldwyncq  +   895d ago
My God, haven't you guys played past chapter 7?

There's this thing we call character development, have you forgotten? Yes he's kinda annoying in the first half of the game though he eventually outgrows this attitude in the game.
Snookies12  +   895d ago
Yes he had a good outcome, but it doesn't make up for the 65% of the game he was annoying in.

Just because a character has development, doesn't mean they can't also be annoying as hell.
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   894d ago
He almost fell off a roof didn't he. He was so close to dying.
rezzah  +   894d ago
He was annoying at first but then he got better.

He only has room to grow, and this was shown through his childish thoughts. Then later his views become more mature, surprising even the adults in the group.

Snow on the other hand...damn that guy is annoying.

kimahris awesome! he doesnt belong here, he's the best all around character. i gave him the strength of auron and healing magic and he was always present.
user5467007  +   895d ago
I'm honestly surprized they didn't have Squall on this list, maybe people these days are actually seeing the great character development he had. I mean you call Squall "emo" then your basicaly calling Cloud a mega Emo since unlike him Squall actually had better reasons for being the selfish jerk we met at the beginging of the game.

I'm surprised that this list didn't comprise of only FF13 and FF13-2 characters.
HammadTheBeast  +   895d ago
Squall kicked ass.

For the right reasons.
iamtehpwn  +   895d ago
I think Cloud had many more reasons to be an emotional character than Squall:

- Both of his parents died, leaving him with basically no family
- The man he looked up to as a hero when he was a child had betrayed him
- Everything he knew to be real was actually a lie
- Amnesia combined with the fact he had actually assumed his best friend's identity
- Forced to fight for the company he once worked for.
- Being mind controlled by Sephiroth
- was unable to protect Aerith from dying.

So yeah. Cloud lives a really unfortunate life.
Irishguy95  +   894d ago
Yeah lets see. Squall was introverted because his big sis left him alone at a young age = super **** for half the game

Cloud, **** life. Very **** life, for many reasons = ***hole for 1 hour at the beginning of the game. Changed when he met Aerith and started to care for his new found companions. In fact, Cloud was basically Not even a ****. He just didn't care about Barrets cause, which annoyed Barret.

Oh also like to point out, the reason Cloud is the way he is at the start is because Zack wanted them to be mercenaries/ That's what Cloud was, he wanted money for his job

Squall

Mother died at child birth
Father out of the picture
Never who she was
Never knew who he was
Grew up alone in an orphanage
Met a girl he looked up to (sis) and put all his trust into her
She leaves and he's alone again...heartbroken
Decides to never trust anyone again and becomes emotionaly closed.
Realises that the girl he likes is lusting after someone else, his rival

I could go on...
Irishguy95  +   894d ago
Yeah Mike, that was the same for the other few characters in the orphanage and they were fine. It's all little emotional problems that while yes..they are hard to get over, Cloud was ****ed up on a whole other level

im surprised vanille, didnt make it or queen brahanne
ForNgoods  +   895d ago
vanille was my most annoying person in a game ever!
Dark_king  +   895d ago
yep first character that made me want to actually hunt down the voice actor and make sure the could no longer talk.
ForNgoods  +   893d ago
actually i remember an interview they did with the voice actress for vanille during an E3. She was actually pretty cute but i'd still have to slap her twice for such an annoyance.

Capt-FuzzyPants  +   894d ago
I actually didn't think she was that bad. She was a bit eccentric, but I guess I put all my hate into Hope.
Relientk77  +   895d ago
Dont really care for any of the characters on this list honestly so I'm ok with it
Treian  +   895d ago
Kimahri really?....
greyhaven33  +   894d ago
One of my favorite final fantasy characters
Tetsujin  +   894d ago
Setzer?! I actually thought he was on point; but I HATED and I mean HATED Hope in 13. Vanille would have been a better pick than my boy Setzer
JoySticksFTW  +   894d ago
Setzer was great. He was like Gambit the Sky Pirate, but much cooler than that sounds.
ChipChipperson  +   894d ago
They put Kimahri on the list when they could have chosen Tidus,Seymour, or Wakka?
CanadianTurtle  +   894d ago
The sole reason I stopped playing FF13 was because of Vanielle's character. No lie.
baodeus  +   894d ago
i think star ocean 4 takes the cakes on this one. 90% of them are annoying (even in japanese). No wonder that developer put in the option to turn off their voice.
