Japan ranks their favorite Final Fantasy females with Lightning as the over all winner.
Rikku should be on top imo
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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 *sigh* I really miss when FF was good.
What about the obese Magus sister...She was smokin!!!
Lightning has the character depth of a box of cereal.
So does cloud but you don't see people crying about him...
Did you FFVII? all the way through?
Cloud cried long enough for himself.
Hated Lightning on top, but no Vanille in the list at least. It looks like not even japanese people like retarded teenage girls. I hope they take this as a hint to stop making this kind of characters.
Rikku the top if i was to bang one but Lightening is a very strong character. My favorite is either Tifa or Quistis
Lightning's the best!
Hurray for Faris. She was a badass pirate afterall
ff13-3 might do well in Japan if Lightning is number one but i hope its the last ff game with Lighting in it for a while.
Hurray for lightning!!! Good to know Japan's taste isn't completely terrible. Can you believe the idiots who say Rikku should be higher? LOL. Clearly they just hate FFXIII. Hee Hee.
Rolf @ people crying about lightning winning the top spot.
Lightning is a joke. Vanille and Rikku are actually my favorites..LuLu was kool.
I guess the japanese really like Lighting. Personally Fang is my favorite of FF females.
Did you FFVII???
Lightning is a male
I can't say that I'm surprised. This sort of thing happens in anime as well where when a new anime gets released everyone claims it to be their all time favourite in polls. It's too bad it wasn't stated how many people actually voted.
Can't say I'm surprised, FF females have always been pretty underwhelming. Hell Aeris is probably the most iconic female character, and that's just because she got stabbed.
God Lightning was terrible...
Yuna is by far the most beatiful and humble Final Fantasy female character
Lightning is awesome, but nobody beats Tifa. NOBODY.
