Which one’s your favourite Cid? The evolution of Final Fantasy’s constant character

RN24: What’s the first Final Fantasy game you played? I came somewhat late to the party, and my first experience of Final Fantasy was Final Fantasy VIII. After a childhood spent playing Sonic, suddenly finding myself in a semi-realistic world with massive potential for exploration really blew my tiny mind back then. In VIII, the headmaster of the military academy is a middle-aged, bespectacled dude with a paunch called Cid. But as Final Fantasy fans know, Cid is actually a character who appears in different forms in (pretty much) all of the Final Fantasy games. The dude’s been regenerated more times than the Doctor in Doctor Who! So we decided to take a look back at all of the Cids in chronological order to see how he’s changed over the years.

FF7 Cid all the way. His "Shut up! Drink your tea!" line will always be fondly remembered.

Always fond of the Cids from FF7-FF9.

The variety of Cids, from a playable mechanic, to Headmaster of an academy, to an Oglop, that was a ruler of a city.

Mine is FFVII's, as it was my first.

the one from vii is pretty cool i guess. x as well.

im guessing most people here would say vii is the favourite. i personally dont care too much, cid is part of ff similar to how moogles/chocobos or ifrit/shiva is. i personally dont care too much but its cool to see how different each one is.
