View Full Version : vivi problem

ok so here is my question. is vivi a human, or is he a black mage..like...i think the real question is...like this. Are black mages like qu's in the fact that they are a different race or are they humans hidden under hats with oddly glowing yellow eyes? i have wondered that for a long time but never truly known the awnser:choc:

The FFIX black mages are more like living toys than anything else. I'd imagine that they really do have no face, and just bizare floating eyes. It's best to just think of it as a design for them, rather than try and find reason for the eyes and lack of face. Think of it as why most cartoons have eyebrows that appear an inch above their heads.

but i think you missed the question. would vivi look like yu or me if he took off his hat? or would he be a black mass with glowing eyes? is the shadow of his hat blocking his face? in the original ff's the black mage job class turned a human into a person that looked just like vivi. so i guess that is what i meant

I think their costume is almost their actual body. Vivi never removed his hat because if he did, it'd be like removing the top-half of his head. In all honesty I think they're just kept alive by magic, hence his entire appearance is created by magic. IF his hat was removed.. I'd guess he'd simply be a black mass.

At their first meeting, Eiko says to Vivi, "Why the long face?"
Therefore I reckon that the Black Mages do have faces (since they can eat and smell, so they must also have the requisite organs for those purposes), it's just that they're difficult to see unless you're standing in close, with good light.

I think this will answer alot of questions... :shifty:

I love that site. It's awsome. But anyway, back to Vivi, I think he is just some black mass with yellow eyes.

I've always thought of Vivi as a blob of mist or whatever, seeing as he was manufactured and not born like regular people.

He really is. he was made after all

I have another question about vivi it concerns all of them actually. In the game u can equip him with hats and armlets and all that crap but y cant u see them, if he put on a different hat or if u took it off u could probably see his face better, same goes for freya.

i think you cant see the different hats because if you changed the image of somebody they could go through so many appearance changes you would have to re-program what he/she looks like during the entire game. therefore you have to put every equipment combo into the game in every part of the game using every motion of the game as well. it would be too complex.

vivi cant take his hat off even through you would be able to see his face better... its the same for amarant afro aswell

Someone said something about Vivi being a troll, but I think they were talking about someone else...

Vivi is different than the other mages. i wouldn't be surprised if he did have facial features unlike the other mages. Also, at the end of the game doesn't it show little mages with Vivi and Eiko? if he can help make kids than he should have other organs as well.

I think Vivi is a shadow from kingdom hearts or just a lump of black substances complied together with two light bulbs attached although I am already two years late for this reply. :(

Vivi is a black mage.

Black mages are made.

Therefore Vivi...you are just a puppet.
