He is one of the main reasons that I would love a remake of FFII. If they expanded upon the already pretty awesome story for current generations (where they won't have to worry about character limitations in the script and such), I feel like he could be up there with Kefka and Sephiroth as one of the greats!

He didn't even let death keep him from fulfilling his plans of world domination. He just took over hell and rose back to Earth to continue his conquest of Earth. Discuss this awesome villain.

Edit: *Looks at title* Also, I suck at typing. I'm a terrible human being. Discuss.

My favourite FF villain, just badass. :cool:

I never fully played through this game until the GBA port, but I remember being very impressed with such a dark turn the series took in general, let alone the villain. And the battle system/game mechanics, too.

But yeah, cool villain, especially for its time. Probably would have scared me as a kid if the game was stateside originally.

I've always felt that the Emperor was a really underrated villain. I mean, he's so calm, calculating, and clever, yet so cruel, selfish, and murderous. And as Scotty said, he didn't even let death stop his ambitions and instead overcame it and took over the underworld.

In fact, Scotty, I would be very more interested if SE decided to make a prequel of the game. The prequel in which tells the tales before the Emperor attacks Fynn as written in the Mumu no Meikyu novelization stated under this article: Emperor Mateus - The Final Fantasy Wiki has more Final Fantasy information than Cid could research (http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Emperor_Mateus)
And also in this article: http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Final_Fantasy_II_Muma_no_Meikyū
Imagine if the novel became a prequel of FFII.

If SE would be making the prequel, I would love to see Mateus' mother in person and learn more about Mateus himself before the original FFII and Dissidia. Perhaps he was good and noble until came the day he becomes a tyrant ruler we had known and probably loved. Also, I'm curious whose Mateus' father...

That would be pretty interesting! I really think the novelization would be interesting to read.

This so much ^

Yes Kefka damaged the world, but this badass managed to defeat God and Satan and managed to control all 3 realms, Earth, Heaven & Hell.

Beat that Clowny boy.

This could be amazing, though knowing SE these days, they would so Cellphone it. :eep:

Yes! :) I always wanted to read it, but unfortunately I can't read or know any Japanese. :(

This makes me think why Mateus didn't get the Best Villain Ciddie trophy during the 25th Anniversary awards event. What you and Evastio said definitely supported the reason why he should get that award. But then again, popularity plays a factor in Kefka's advantage.

No matter, The Emperor is one of the memorable villains in the FF series.

Yes, like FFVII's Before Crisis spin-off game and SE's All The Bravest. I hope that SE would make a PS version of the FFII prequel instead. I really wanted to see Mateus' mother in person! :)

When I first saw him in the CGI opening I thought it was a woman.

I haven't gotten to any of his scenes yet, but just from the opening he already left a lasting impression on me. Any villains that dies, takes over hell and comes back like a bawse is all right in my book. Until he kills me.

The first few times I watched that I thought it was Hilda.

And yeah I like this guy. I can respect a man whose only ambition is conquest and lust for power. Then he died, but then he conquered hell and came back to take another shot at it so... that's pretty dang hardcore.
