We all know characters above 30 are considered fossils in JRPGs, so we always have that grizzled veteran that is just so experienced in the party dispensing wisdom left and right (despite being like 5 years older than the protagonist). Which one did you like the best?

Not a question.
only 1 answer.

Even though he's infuriatingly slow, I voted FF4 Cid.

He can survive a bomb blast after jumping off an airship. Old guy knows how to have a good time.

Cid Highwind is 32 and is considered a fossil.

So....if Square were to kidnap me and stick me in a game they would give me a hearing aid, glasses and a walking stick?

Its for these reasons Ive voted for Galuf.

Tellah was the best character in FFIV.

When I think about it, IV had a lot of these. Even Yang would qualify. And there's even more if you take the After Years into question

Who is Cyan? You mean Strago? Basch, Sazsh, and VII's Cid are considered old?

Basch, Sazsh, and VII's Cid are considered old?

When compared to the average age of the rest of the cast, they are. :p

Sazh is like 40 iirc. but i agree, maybe it should be "Favourite Veteran"

Having just beaten Tactics, I am all about that T.G. Cid. The man is a destroyer of worlds.

Of the list Cyan, if you had replaced Cyan with the true old guy of FFVI (Strago) then I would go with Cid Highwind, if you replaced Cid with the true old guy of FFVII (RedXIII) then Steiner from FFIX if you had included him, but if Steiner is replaced with Quina since he/she is older but doesn't fully qualify as a "guy", then RedXIII and if we're not counting RedXIII since he's 17 in dog years or whatever then Galuf.

I thought RedXIII was just 17. And wouldn't he be like two and a half than?

He's been alive for 48 years but since his species lives a long time he's only a "teenager". Theyre reverse dog years.

Galuf

Auron is my favourite since he's charismatic and still a great warrior! :cool:

While Cyan isn't technically the "old guy" of FFVI, and though there are more charismatic entires on this list than him, I voted for him anyway since he was an option. His side-plot is just too good and so heartbreaking. Also, the banter between him, Gau, and Sabin is just amazing.

Y'know, I thought the thread was just gonna be "favourite old guy party", and I was going to come in and make a lemon party joke, but then I realised A) it isn't, and B) I actually don't know what lemon party is and am just inferring from context.

Whatever. Galuf.

I like Tellah the most, because he's super cranky and beats Edward with a stick.

Definitely Auron, though Galuf comes in a close second.
