The title says it all, who is your favorite SE main character from a non-FF/DQ title? When I say no FF or DQ I also mean no spin-offs, sequels or games with FF or DQ in the title.

EDIT: I'll allow this to be more interesting and say simply, favorite character from a non-FF/DQ game.

Freaking Billy from Xenogears. Also, I know it's not a Square game, but Yuri from the new Tales of Vesperia has easily become one of my favorite characters in a game. So, it's a toss up between those two. They are just both so badass. Billy and his guns, and Yuri and his bad boy yet good guy persona! :P

Neku! He's got good fashion sense and says odd things. Like everyone else in the game.



"Sometimes i just feel so...emo. There I said it."
"Wait! I've got it! I just need to focus on the light of my life. My beacon of hope! Yes... That'll pull me right out of this funk! Why? Because that light is... a trick of fate? A microcosm of my world? The meaning of life? It's my PURPOSE! TIN PIN SLAMMER IS MY PURPOSE! I will be the greatest slammer that ever lived!"
"And more importantly, who thought that costume was OK? Guy's got a ram on his crotch. What is this, Freak Fashion Friday? Tin Pin, yours is a mysterious world..."
(Tin Pin, you are a trick of fate. A microcosm of my world... The meaning of life. ...Or something. Thank you, Lord! Today kicked ass. Please let tommorow be even sweeter than today! Thanks... Peace.)

>>> If the old games from square count. then Magus (chrono trigger).
From the Enix side, Lezard Valeth.

BTW, I have never been a fan of main characters.

Roxas if you consider him a main character.

Roxas if you consider him a main character.

I would count him. :D

Normally I would choose Ashley Riot from Vagrant Story but there is strong evidence its a game connected to the Ivalice series so I count it as a sequel disqualifying it from this thread.

I would have to go with either Crono or Fei Fong Wong myself.

Ivalice is just some crap Matsuno came up with so he could keep making Ogre Battle games anyway. Ashley Riot counts.

I didn't notice your edit. Now it makes since why people are saying non-main characters xD.

I change my answer to Hrist.

I just changed the edit last night cause no one was really following the original point of the thread.

Also, Karellen it doesn't change that SE bought Matsuno and transformed Ogre Battle into a FF franchise. VS counts as a sequel/spin-off ;)

Hmm, this seemed like a hard choice as I've hadn't played many Square games outside of FF. I almost forgot about KH, I think I would go with either Lucca from Chrono Trigger or Mint from Threads of Fate.

Probably someone from Xenogears. It had loads of characters I loved. Of them I choose Citan :]

Nah, Vagrant Story is not a FF. It does count here!

I'm surprised you preferred Ashley Riot over Sydney. Or was that before the edit?

Before the edit. I actually adore both of them to be honest. Hell the whole game's cast is incredible.

Vagrant Story is definitely incredible.

Hmm, it'd have to be someone from Chrono Cross. However, I can't really decide which character...

I would say Fayt Liengod from Star Ocean 3 and Ashley Riot from Vagrant Story (that is if Vagrant Story counts).

Sora :aimkiss: I wish I climbed trees like he does. It looks... titillating.

It would be Seraphita from Xenogears (although she's not a major character). A bubbly, flighty bunny girl who uses fire and pilots a transformer. What's not to like? :D

Xenosaga is a prequel of sorts to Xenogears. Same universe, different continuity.

Xenogears is great. Never played Xenosaga.

Karellen

Xenosaga is only a spiritual prequel to Xenogears. Not even the universes are the same.

I would only bother with Xenosaga if you don't have anything else to play. III is alright but it pretty much requires you to have played I and II before hand, which are both pretty bad.

I assumed that Shion was an ancestor of Citan because they shared the same surname. I guess it's just the Cid effect then.

Yea, they are all just shout outs for people who've played Gears, you can read into as more if you want to. And Episode III is full of them. Like Jin's outfit and Maria to name a couple.
