This list goes through the top ten Final Fantasy characters of all time.
cloud is boring.
Mine: 1. Cloud 2. Sephiroth 3. Vincent Valentine 4. Yuna 5. kefka 6. edgar 7. cecil 8. shadow 9. vivi 10. mog
why do people like vivi so much??
My favorite line from the list: "We here at O-W truly loved the character of Vivi. Squaresoft took one of the simplest and oldest character types and added a depth not seen in FF games previous to this one. You couldn’t help but feel bad for Vivi, you wanted to reach through the screen and give the little bugger a hug and tell him everything will be all right. "
Kefka #5 = fail
Out of the top 10, 4 of them belongs to FFVI (FFIII in US). My personal favorite FF.
but auron is a bad ass :) worst cait smith :(
"Kefka actually destroys the world. Granted in the end you kill him, but for what, what’s left? The world is shattered, most people are dead, crazy mutant monsters are running around everywhere, and most people belong to a cult worshiping the very guy who destroyed the world." Add in Locke, Shadow and Interceptor, Cyan, Edgar, Sabin, and Setzer... and it's FFVI FTW :)
How can people love Cloud? He was the most emotional bastard next to Squall.
MOG ahead of SEPHIROTH??????? WTF is this bull s***????
couldn't agree more. they even say they have a bias towards FF6 in the intro.
Kefka is #1 though.
how is cloud not on this list?
no good dialogue + stupid character design = lame character. That's why.
If Tifa is not on it I'm pissed.
What is Mog doing on this list in general. i HATE moogles.
i thought the dance concept was cool.
dumb list. where's gogo?
no cloud? are you serious?
Kefka, man that dude is just one sadistic freak. The most evil villain of all FF characters. No FF boss even compares to him.
sephiroth owns kefka.
Kefka is the best villain. Sephiroth just doesn't show evil like kefka does....
An opinion can't be wrong.
Sure Sephiroth was badass, but tell me what did he really accomplish in FFVII? He didn't even kill Aerith/Aeris right.... He was also good compared to kefka, he used to be a hero, idolized by many. Doesn't really fit right in the whole ultimate villain portfolio.
How does he not kill Aeris right? He killed her and she is dead...there really isn't much more to it.
explain to me how kefka is better than sephiroth? this list makes no sense.
Seph tries to destroy the world, but fails. Kefka succeeds(!!!) in destroying the world. For the second half of FFVI, you're wandering through a devastated wasteland to broken cities just trying to find your party members again - while Kefka resides on a floating CONTINENT that he ripped from the planet and gets worshipped like a god by the world's few survivors. And his laugh is freaky evil! Epic stuff
Sephiroth got defeated by an emo. Come on...
What the hell is vivi doing on this list?
i love vivi!
sephiroth definitely belongs at #1.
No Cloud? I don't even know much about Final Fantasy and can say this list fails without Cloud in it.
It saddens me that characters like Cloud are passed over in favor of 2D sprites.
we have vivi over cloud. let me restate: VIVI....over CLOUD!!! btw....Sweden is better than America!
LIES!!!! ;) wink
Vivi would be nr1 on my list. I just love him, great character 1. Vivi 2. Terra 3. Locke 4. Steiner 5. Sephiroth 6. Tidus (Yeah, I don't hate him) 7. Balthier (Cool, character in a not so good FF) And the rest of the list would be wrong, I would change my mind over and over again about that part xD
It's nice that Cecil and Kain got mentioned but Cecil is so much better than Kain. I don't think I could do a list to be honest, there's too many cool characters.
Yeah I agree. I loved those 2 characters.
No Cloud for real? I think journalist just like to hate on FF VII because so many people like it.
Yeah, Rydia over cloud was a little weird.
I have to completely agree.
All those 10 characters are better than Cloud. Cloud is a lame character.
Hahaha... I just tried to do a list of my top ten favorite FF characters (I've played 1,2,3,4,7,8,9,10,11,12) and it ended up being 10 FF VII characters. Gawd, I'm such a fanboy for that game.
Not just yet, man. I haven't played 6 (And perhaps what's confusing is that I use the US numbering system for FF games. So.. 3 and 4 were the ones on the DS). But I will. I've been working on all released FF games for some time (save for X-2, tactics, crystal). And am aiming to beat them before leaving college.
Kefka #1 = Best list ever made.
But I would have included Umaro and/or Gau. Kefka is #1 though, so I approve. :D
i like cloud and the guy from ff8
I like Squall and Laguna also. Guess I'm flying solo. Oh well :)
No Laguna was awesome and Squall had his moments of greatness too. I think Laguna's probably the best from FFVIII.
Thanks & will give bubbles. Loved FFviii
you aren't flying solo, I absolutely loved FFVIII, so Squall Leonheart and Laguna for life.
is Squall Leonheart?
Kefka is the best villain ever in all the FF series. He has no morals, values, or any sense of good that holds him back. He's just insanely evil.
"Heath Ledger would have been the only man to play Kefka."
Funny stuff... Just for the fact this is an OW list you can instantly tell who is number 1... Even if you cant tell exactly who you know its gonna be from a SNES FF game... I think the list is meh personally... Of course a top 10 FF character list will usually be EXTREMELY different for a large majority of people... Auron really does deserve a spot on the list though... And Sabin can suplex a train... That deserves the number 1 spot instantly in my opinion hahahaha
Good list, although Cecil should be at number 1. I might be a bit biased from my avatar :)......Anyway, everyone should play Final Fantasy 6 if they get the chance.....Best. RPG. Ever. They really don't make 'em like they used to....
omg i hate KEFKA hes so gay..............
NO CLOUD WHAT THE HELL MAN THAT TAKES THIS F***ING P**S plus what is all this B S about being able to bring Aries back from the dead if its true then tell me how as i have spent 2 years looking how to do it not even the walkthrough tells you so if any one out there thinks they can do it then be my guest as it is not possible i have give up Oh and FINAL fANTASY IS THE BEST GAME EVER TO BE MADE
