Basch is really one of my favorite characters in this game, he even edges out Balthier for me, I mean he's stoic, takes the shit given to him with dignity and some of the first scenes with him involve watching him cut down a whole platoon of guards and then performing a Quickening to blow up scout class airship. So this thread is dedicated to the awesomness that is Basch!

Basch is a god damn hero and he never left my party from the second he joins.

I like him as a character.

I loathe him for his lack of fashion sense. (http://xii.venusgospel.net/ff12_basch.html)

I honestly like his oufits. Considering some of the other questionable fashion designs in Ivalice...

They've censored that for the western release, aren't they? ;_;

The TA, TA2 and Bravely Default pics are not Yoshida art, Wolf. The character designs for TA and TA2 were done by Ryoma Itou. And it's true that Yoshida did design the main cast of BD, but most of the job outfits are done by other people. And while I'll agree that the arcanist outfit is abysmal, your ignorance really surprised me, Wolf. Shame :colbert:

On topic, I like how he's essentially the Matsuno protagonist in this game. He is humble, focused on finding the truth, not matter how hated he becomes in the process.

Well, crap my bad, I always assumed it was him cause Yoshida usually gets top billing for the artwork but you are right.

I fixed the post to better reflect my intentions. ;)

Balthier is still the best dressed of the group.

Well, he cleans up nice for a man left to rot, I'll give him that.

I do like Basch for his stoicism, I just can't stand his running animation. I don't know if it's just me but he runs like a robot.

Don't you dare insinuate that the Ivalice of the Tactics Advance games is the same Ivalice as the original Tactics or FFXII ever again.

But yeah, Basch is a pretty damn great character. I've actually been thinking about giving XII a replay lately, and one of the main reasons was because I just want to run around as Basch killing things and being awesome.

It's true, tho. Whether you like it or not, that's just how it is.

How does XII fit in with FFT if the FFTA games don't?

He runs like a guy who's father is a top official in the government, was given a high rank position because of that, & never has had to run a day in his life.

Not as dead as you are to ME! Tactics Advance is an awesome game, easily the best written FF of all time. I see no shame in it sharing a universe with Tactics and XII.
