Rikku should be on top imo

DragonKnight1202d ago

One would think that Rikku, being the most "anime" style female character that's been in the series so far, would have been at the top. Lightning is only there because she's the newest and more people know her. I mean, she has the personality of wood. So unless the Japanese audience likes emotionless women (and their programming suggests that that couldn't be further from the truth), there's no other logical explanation than either this was a VERY small poll or it's because Lightning is fresh in their minds thanks to Square-Enix trying to force her down everyone's throat.

No garnet should be

Final fantasy ix > everything

Rikku's been my hands-down favorite since I first laid eyes on her. I doubt that's ever gonna change.

KingKelloggTheWH1202d ago

People are fickle and short sided so the newest game should be expected to be on top.

Lightning number one? are you kidding me Japan?
She had the emotionally depth of a cardboard box.
I would personally choose Aerith or Terra from FFVI.

linkenski1202d ago

Japanese people have a very different way of looking at characteristics of people. The more women sound like little girls the more sexy they are. It's pretty disturbing to me.

Does Lightning's Japanese voice sound like a little girl?

MaxXAttaxX1202d ago

Lightning doesn't sound like a little girl.

But character design may take priority over depth. She's also the latest character so is likely that this may skew her popularity.

Alright i don't know the latest FF games, so i cant attribute that generalization to Lightning, and i didn't mean to, but i just meant to say that Japanese people look at different things than most people in the west do, when they try to choose what character is better than the other.

Terra definitely, she was absolutely amazing for a character. Especially the way she struggled to find her place in life after the world ended. Man, I still remember some of those scenes with her so fondly.

How dare people have an opinion of their own.

HarryMasonHerpderp1202d ago (Edited 1202d ago )

Yeah people can have their own opinion.
So what's your point?
Ironic much?

I don't think lightning should be top but I'm happy tifa, aerith and Yuna are in the top 4. Tifa especially took me surprise with the emotional depth she has in vii.

HarryMasonHerpderp1202d ago (Edited 1202d ago )

Yeah I loved Tifa in FFVII.
Probably one of the most interesting side story's in a FF game. I always remember the scene where she goes on a date with Cloud when they were young and it's all awkward between them lol

I really miss when FF was good.
