The Best Characters of Final Fantasy

The best part of a journey lies in the company you keep. Over the many years of the Final Fantasy franchise dozens of heroes and villains have entered our hearts and remain in our memories. Some of them awe us with their dedication to righteous causes while others widen our eyes with sinister plots. (3DS, Final Fantasy, Nintendo DS, PC, PS3, PSP, Wii, Xbox 360)

I've been a big fan of Lightning ever since she punched Snowe in the face.

Can't say I've ever really "liked" many of Final Fantasy's characters. Red XIII and Vivi were pretty cool, though.

Really? I always felt that Lightning was a weak character with not a lot of depth but to each his/her own.

The characters I have always liked was Zach Fair, Tidus and Yuna. They had likeable personality's and had tear jerking moments that will live on forever in gamers minds.

I totally agree. Lightning is piss poor character. Being a fan of weak character just because she punched even more terrible char? I fail to find that as a reason.

She's far from being the best from FF13. Shallow, female soldier. Pretty much cloned female Cloud. Yes, I've played this ridiculous game.

Sazh was best char in this game. At least had some depth. Not just looks and cool sword.

She had plenty of depth and lots of characterization. If you're going to dislike a character, at least try to pick, you know, some valid reasons for doing so.

Pro tip: saying "I don't like character X" is a valid reason for disliking a character!

How does FF6 get 5 characters mentioned and FF10 only gets one?

Even though Auron's the most badass, likeable character there, Yuna and Tidus definitely deserve some mention.

And Wakka too, dude was awesome.

Why did they put a pic of Lightening on this article it should have been Sephiroth or Barret

Vivi
Zidane
Squall
Cloud
Tidus

I sorta really like FFVII-FFX

You really have to break it down into two eras, pre-PS1, and The Playstation era. I personally would pick more characters from FF VIII, but again, I'm looking at it from two eras in both gameplay and character development.

My Top 5 from each era:

Pre-PS1
5. Setzer(FF VI)
4. Kain (FF IV)
3. Sabin (FF VI)
2. Edge (FF IV)
1. Shadow (FF VI)

The Playstation era

5. Vann (FF XII)
4. Yuna (FF X)
3. Balther (FF XII)
2. Squall (FF VIII)
1. Lagana (FF VIII)
