View Full Version : Scottish Dwarves

So I'm currently on my first playthrough of this game on my iPhone...

Is it me or are all the dwarves in dwarf cave all talking in a Scottish accent? Is this on purpose? Did they have Scottish accents in the original NES version of the game?

I don't know if it's the same in the original game, but I can say that it's quite common for Dwarves to be given Scottish (or a gravelly English voice) accents in all kinds of media, so it didn't surprise me that they did this back in the early days of Final Fantasy. It's a Celtic thing. Oh, and they can be Irish, sometimes, too! But yeah, Scottish is the 'majority accent' for Dwarves in fantasy realms. :p

They were just as impossible to understand in the NES version, don't you worry.

The dwarves at Conde Petie in Final Fantasy IX speak with a Scottish accent and dialect, too.

He's by way of NZ so he's actually a pygmy

I couldn't help but imagine Shrek's voice when I saw the accents in the updated versions of the game. I don't even like Shrek all that much. Well, this post was fun. I want to leave this off on a better note.

Oh man I love the dorf accents in this game, they crack me up so much.

Dorfs are clearly master race!
