Favorite 5 Females from Final Fantasy

"Final Fantasy is easily one of the most recognizable brands in the gaming industry, and a large portion of the franchise’s success comes from the many lovable characters the series has produced that will come up anytime you talk about the best of all-time. Among these great characters and games are many strong female characters whose outer beauty could only be matched by their intelligence to think their way through dangerous situations, courage they show on the battlefield and the loyalty they show towards their comrades. Some of these strong females form such a strong bond with the player it becomes overwhelmingly painful to see them leave when you turn off your game console. Luckily, you can boot up your game at anytime to reunite with these fantastic characters, so without further delay, let’s take a look at our Favorite 5 Females from Final Fantasy!" -Amanda Dyar (Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, Culture, Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy X-2, Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Industry, PS3, PSP, Retro)

*Yawn* Another top whatever the fu** list to garner fanboy hits. Also, blatantly using tits as enticement to click when in fact the article has no tits worthy of mention. For shame.
Save yourself a click; Serah, Tifa, Lightning, Aeris/Aerith, Yuna.
*insert typical feminist talk about, strength, womanly love, independence, sacrifice etc.

How the hell is lightning anything like cloud other than they used to be soldiers. Like seriously how ignorant are you to ffxiii.
BinaryMind  +   1079d ago
Lighting was designed as a female version of Cloud...
wishingW3L  +   1079d ago
no Terra or Celes makes this list irrelevant!
xGrunty  +   1079d ago
Yep no Terra. List is worthless.
Irishguy95  +   1079d ago
She's still nothing like Cloud, literally at all/ Personality, looks(really?) and well..that's it..what else is there?
darkpower  +   1079d ago
Because we gamer men can't POSSIBLY be able to have female protagonists that either:

1. Show us constant tits all the time.
2. Act "manly"

Seriously, we need to grow the hell up.
CoLD FiRE  +   1079d ago
Why the hell would a heterosexual man want a female to act manly? Maybe you should explore your sexuality more.
darkpower  +   1079d ago
Apparently my comment went right over your head without even a care as to what I meant.

Thanks a lot!
-Gespenst-  +   1079d ago
A heterosexual male would prefer a female protagonist to act "manly" all the time because of the patriarchal sexual politics of our society. If a woman is in a place of power, it's unusual because men are still essentially seen as the dominant sex. Thus on a sort of unconscious level, dudes find it uncomfortable when a girl has a position of power and yet isn't at some capacity "manly". It's not necessarily a gay thing, just a weird social thing that is perhaps phasing out (maybe not)
killerhog  +   1079d ago
No rinoa? Not even the chick from ff6 (forgot her name)?
Rozuken  +   1079d ago
thanks for saving me the trouble
Runa216  +   1079d ago
You want REAL women in Final Fantasy? Try Rydia, Terra, Celes, Faris, and Tifa. Those characters actually got up and ACTED on what they thought was right, fought inner demons and eventually took hold of theirselves in the interest of making the world a better place.

Long live the SNES. And Tifa.

I bet in Japan you can find anime porn with all of these female characters getting ravaged by tentacles.

Funny how the Japanese try to present themselves as this noble honorable culture but they have the nastiest anime.
ProjectDeputy  +   1079d ago
doesnt change the fact that they are still the number 1 worldwide for more than 40 years dominating the animes-hentai etc etc

call me once the west do something equaly good as death note

We got classics like

Thundercats
Street sharks
Biker mice from mars
He-man
The old Gi Joe cartoons
The old transformers cartoons

Also most anime stories are taking from western influence. Read about how gundam got inspired buddy.

@killerhog

>implying the West doesn't have animation influenced by Anime
SilenceOfKnights  +   1079d ago
Project you forgot Code Geass.
Irishguy95  +   1079d ago
First of all, Family guy is awesome.

Second: Avatar the Last Airbender

Third, I agree, in the West you have two types of things

Kids cartoons which adults can enjoy: Avatar/Killerhogs list

Adult comedies such as Family guy

Nothing else is really done, there is no more diversity. Japanese Anime vary as much as movies and Tv shows. Any genre goes, and all age's are looked after. Yes Josephp, including tentacle porn...

For example, most people would rip on Naruto here, yet it is arguably better than almost everything the west can come out with, almost. And as for an anime, it ain't even that good, its' just...you know...7/10. Has it's ups and downs. Reality is though, it's genre/it's age's - it's the same as Lord of the Rings, Star wars etc(if not a cut above with age/sex jokes/blood etc), anyone who like them would more than likely like Naruto, so long as you watch it in Japanese with Subs and not English Dubbed.

Then there are things like Cowboy bebop(ever here of Firefly? Major influence), monster(brain surgeon framed for murder, good mystery thriller), Ghost in the shell(matrix stole idea's), Princess mononoke(Cameron stole it for Avatar), I could keep going on anyway. Point is, if you like any of the above movies/shows, you will like the shows they got their idea's from.
Hicken  +   1079d ago
Um... first off, they created anime, so it's no surprise they have the "nastiest" versions of it. It tends to look better than the Disney-inspired porn here in the West(and don't get me started on the Family Guy, Scooby Doo, or even Flintstones stuff...).

Secondly, having a "dirty" side doesn't stop a culture from being noble or honorable. If you're the same person in public that you are in private, you're a social degenerate, or you have a very bland private life. Societies are the same: the Japanese publicly shun any and all things sexual, and perhaps BECAUSE of this suppression, have a very wild and imaginative private sex life(as a culture).

On topic, my list would be:

Rikku
Cissnei
Ashe
Lightning
Yuffie (AC)
Rozuken  +   1079d ago
rule 34.. Americans are the same way.
Ranma1  +   1079d ago

Skateboard  +   1079d ago

ProjectDeputy  +   1079d ago
aeris
tiffa
rinoa
yuffie
riku
lulu
iamlegend9999  +   1079d ago
I miss serah -_-
elda  +   1079d ago
Lightning is my favorite then Fang & Lulu.
cleft5  +   1079d ago
I like the ff13 games, but Serah and Lightning have no place on this list. So many better looking and stronger women than them.

Maybe you can make an argument for Lightning because of the whole gunblade thing and the fact that she constantly punches Snow gives her bonus points. But Serah is nothing more than a token character, even in ff13-2 she is a token character and she is supposedly the star of that game.
DivineAssault  +   1079d ago
Lulu was btr than Yuna
Lord_Sloth  +   1079d ago
In no order...

Tifa
Agrias
Quistis
Freya
Rinoa
sugadaddy  +   1079d ago
Why are Serah's tits humongous in that picture?
user5467007  +   1079d ago
Lightning...Serah...wtf

Serah is a pussy and Lightning is a moany, bland, dull, b*tchy character.

My top 5 in no order would be

Tifa
Rinoa
Garnet
Yuna
Quistis
Toadmaster89  +   1079d ago
Where's Terra? Celes?
raiden-49  +   1079d ago
Where the hell is Terra she is awesome D=
Kos-Mos  +   1079d ago
Crap site screaming for hits. A list of top 5 divided on three pages, but worst of all is the list itself and the writer. A disgrace to Final Fantasy.

LaurenKB123  +   1079d ago
For me it's simple.... Lightning!
ninavoljic  +   1079d ago
Just add more tits on a character, and suddenly, it'll be your favorite.
Gen0ne  +   1079d ago
How many more? 2 will do nicely for me.
AdmiralSnake  +   1079d ago
Lightning, Riku, Fang, Pain, and Yuffi.
-Gespenst-  +   1079d ago
Rikku, Yuna, Yuffie, Tifa, and either Quistis or Terra

Runners-up - Rinoa, Lightning, Rydia, Celes, Aeris

Garnet, Selphie and Serah are all aight I guess.

I remember Lenna and Faris from V being decent as well but that was a long time ago...
LordHiggens  +   1079d ago
2 of them are from FFXIII....god FFXIII just sucked so hard. It was abysmal...
helghast102  +   1079d ago
Awesome alliteration.
@Higgens

LordHiggens  +   1079d ago
Omg...you are right, why didn't I see it earlier????
iMpuTeD  +   1079d ago
