This is a 64 character tournament to see who is the strongest Final Fantasy character of all time. Vote in the poll between each pair of characters and every couple of days or so I will update the poll. I have marked the pairs of characters with letters to show who's fighting who. There are four divisions, the 8-bit Division, the 16-bit Divison, the Next-Gen Division, and the Wild Card Divison (the division names mean nothing as the characters are all mixed up). We'll do those and then go to a final four.

We'll start with 8-bit Division Round 1! Get to voting!

02-15-2004, 07:55 AM
I haven't played all of these games, but I'm sure I could get a good idea of who to vote for. Sounds like fun. *thinks*

02-15-2004, 02:11 PM
I vote Celes beacuse she's hot.
Edit: Bahs. I too misrelized the multi-vote trick.

The Man
02-15-2004, 05:44 PM
Long live Josef!

Edit: Oh, it's multi-vote. I don't remember who I voted for then. Josef was one of them though.

This idea rawks.

Poor Josef has a tough opponent. Maybe I should have stuck him with Lulu.

02-15-2004, 07:03 PM
Ooh this looks fun.
I voted Yuna, Black Wizard, Cid, Vivi, Squall, Celes, Mog and Rosa..I think. I probably got mixed up in there somewhere. And I didn't know some of the characters *needs to play those games*

02-15-2004, 07:45 PM
How could anyone vote against Adlai Stevenson? :(

Del Murder
02-15-2004, 10:45 PM
I had a feeling that the Lulu - Black Wizard battle would be a good one.

personally i think cloud or bartz but they were'nt there,

but the next best thing....Cid

Del Murder
02-16-2004, 12:09 AM
Remember everyone, this is a multiple select poll, and you can vote for more than one person at a time. So select one person in each lettered pair to vote for them. There are still 3 divisions left to go, so Cloud or Bartz may be in those, you never know! (It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out Cloud wouldn't be left out :p).

Here is a bracket. The rest of the divisions will be revealed later to build suspense.

02-16-2004, 12:37 AM
Yuna and Lulu belong to 8-Bit division? Hmm...

Here are my votes:

Yuna vs Gordon - Yuna
Black Wizard vs Lulu - Black Wizard
Cid vs Josef - Cid
Vivi vs Gogo - Vivi
Squall vs Galuf - Squall
Celes vs Agrias - Celes
Mog vs Red Wizard - Mog
Rosa vs Quistis - Rosa

02-16-2004, 01:41 AM
WHY DON'T YOU PEOPLE LIKE GOGO!?!?!??!11?1?1?1!!

Poor Gogo, she/he/it has feelings too :cry:

02-16-2004, 06:40 AM
looks like i voted for every1 who was winning NEway, apart from lulu and balck mage were close but my wote for lulu may of gave her the edge, but its hard to tell
I sure hope u get cloud, sephiroth, well most the FFVII crew and FFX crew into this. maybe u could of done a bracket for each game then had the best play the best.
but maybe next time

02-16-2004, 06:41 AM
Cid Highwind deserves a lot better than a 4-seed, man. And there's no way that Yuna is one of the Dukes or Kentuckys of Final Fantasy. :p

Del Murder
02-16-2004, 08:52 AM
Yuna (and only Yuna) has access to some of the most powerful attacks ever seen in Final Fantasy. Her ability to summon six or seven beasts per battle that do hoards of damage and take hits of their own is unmatched by anyone on that board. In my opinion she can wipe the floor with anyone and is one of the most powerful Final Fantasy character ever.

Hm, looking back now Cid should have switched with Mog so I agree with you. The seedings were loosely done based on my opinion of the strength, importance, and likability of each character. If there is a next time I will seed them based on these results I assure you.

I'll start round 2 tomorrow evening sometime, or however long it takes for the Black Wizard to beat Lulu. :D

Actually, that's true now that I think about it. Yojimbo meant an instant kill on anything, and Anima meant 1.6 million HP worth of damage, if I remember rightly.

But Gogo could have mimiced that if it was in Yuna's party, yet you all forget it! :(

02-16-2004, 08:47 PM
Gogo = Gonzaga

It makes perfect sense. Too bad he's gettin' beaten.

I see Del and I disagree on everyone there, except one.

This is gettin' way more interesting after just one round. It made for some really good matchups in this round. *votes*

Tough decision? Here's some help:

Lulu: Eat Flare! *casts Flare*
Yuna: *summons Bahamut to absorb Flare so doesn't get scratched* You were saying?
Lulu: *doesn't get a turn because Flare makes her so DAMN SLOW*
Yuna's turn: *does nothing because she can*
Yuna's turn again: regular attack kills Lulu in one hit

Or even better:
YUNA: "Feel my pain! Come, Anima!"
(Anima reaches her Overdrive and uses Oblivion to blow Lulu to bits. Overkill and 2,500,000+ damage.)

02-18-2004, 12:45 AM
Lulu [random pick beacuse I haven't played X] Vivi [Haven't played IX but I HATE THE CID TRADITION, ENOUGH WITH THE STUPID CID ALREDY!], Celes[ Eye candy of FF6] , and Rosa [Slight Celes look-alike]

02-18-2004, 02:24 AM
cid in ff7 is pretty crappy, really. vivi however is quite powerful.

02-18-2004, 03:19 AM

02-18-2004, 03:33 AM
Hmmm, maybe you should of had all the rounds of 16, then 8s ect, know what I mean...?That way we dont know the final four until the very end, instead of knowing 1 finalist for a month then the next.

Lulu, Cid, Celes, Mog were my votes though

Del Murder
02-18-2004, 04:56 AM
Nah, I'd rather the winners square (get it?) off again right away to continue the momentum.

The Man
02-18-2004, 06:13 AM
cid in ff7 was actually one of my favourite cids. ff4 and ff9 had really good cids as well. i think thus far cid in ff6 has been my least favourite, he's pretty bland really.

cid vs. vivi is a tough matchup and i've been known to vote either way, but whatever ;)

02-18-2004, 07:01 PM
oh come on people!
Lulu & Vivi are WAY more powerful than Yuna & Cid (respectively)

Del Murder
02-18-2004, 10:29 PM
Seriously though, I want someone to come up with a scenario where Lulu beats Yuna, keeping in mind that Yuna can summon powerful beasts to do her work for her while Lulu cannot.

8-bit Division Round 2 results:

<b>Yuna - ||||\|| 7</b>
Lulu - ||||\| 6

Vivi - ||| 3
<b>Cid - ||||\||||\|| 12</b>

<b>Celes - ||||\||||\ 10</b>
Squall - |||| 4

Rosa - |||| 4
<b>Mog - ||||\||||\| 11</b>

On to the semifinals! Here are your matchups:

Yuna (X) vs. Cid (VII)
Highwind seems to be dominating and Yuna just barely got out of a tough match with her guardian. Can she summon her way to victory over this master of airships?

Celes (VI) vs. Mog (VI)
A pair of FFVI greats go at it head to head. Can Mog's flashy dancing beat the runic blade? Will Celes continue momentum after an upset over Squall? You be the judge!

Get to voting.

The Man
02-19-2004, 05:48 AM
i've got to go for cid and mog.

i didn't really consider celes' victory over squall to be much of an upset either; by my estimation, squall is the least popular main character since frionel or whatever they called him in origins

Del Murder
02-19-2004, 05:53 AM
Yeah, you're probably right, but it was according to my unofficial seeding.

The Man
02-19-2004, 05:53 AM
fair enough then ;)

02-19-2004, 07:18 AM
I like Mog a bit, but I like Celes better.

02-19-2004, 11:47 AM
*votes Cid and Celes*

Hey! I thought Squall was good until he started being all lovey rather than "...Whatever" because that's just the opposite of how a traditional hero is.

Oh, and in Origins his name was Firion. Probably.

The Man
02-19-2004, 02:05 PM
Frionel is such a better name than Firion, IMO. :p

holy hell...

02-19-2004, 11:10 PM
*votes Cid and Celes.* Yuna in FFX is boring. She's pretty cool in FFX-2, but Cid's still greater, IMHO. As for Celes, I think she's a lot stronger than Mog.

Del Murder

Ooh, Cid pulls ahead, and Celes has some good separation on Mog now.

Things are heating up in the 8-bit Division, though all the 8-bit contestants are long gone.

Yuna - ||||\| 6
<b>Cid - ||||\||||\|| 12</b>

<b>Celes - ||||\||||\| 11</b>
Mog - ||||\|| 7

Now for today's matchup:

Cid (VII) vs. Celes (VI)
These two superpowers collide in an inter-system finals! Will Cid be able to trash talk his way out of this one? Or will Celes put her magical powers to the test? One of these two will make it to the Final Four!

02-21-2004, 07:20 AM

02-21-2004, 07:22 AM

Down with the Cid tradition! Go Celes go!

Rand Al'Tor
02-21-2004, 02:26 PM
SIt down and drink your goddamn DEFEAT Celes!

Also note that Cid's victory over Yuna can be explained. Imagine if you will.

Yuna would indeed quickly summon, and would hurt Cid. But our potty mouth airship capitain is of the Dragoon tradition. So he can jump OVER the summon and take on the Summonner directly (can he, I say he can! So there! yes I know Kihmari can't jump enemy Summoners) Yuna becomes Summonner on a stick, Cid has a nice smoke. (smoking is bad kids)

Of course, Yuna COUD have gotten out her FLYING Aeon but..... shut up, Cid won. Now if only he can take out the magic wielding general.

(mind you, Celes against Yuna. Would Celes runci abailty be able to prevent Yuna from summoning eveything, bringing it down to hand to hand? We shall never know)

02-21-2004, 02:57 PM
Go on Cid! Do it! That's it!

Remove the word "Cid" and you got yourselves a quote from FFVII. Seriously, go find it, it's what an NPC says throughout the game, so it isn't that hard to find :D

02-21-2004, 10:46 PM
Neither is really that strong, but Celes gets my vote for being an evil general and actually having skills without having to use any outside help (materia).

Del Murder
02-21-2004, 11:52 PM
Celes has an early lead, but we had 20 votes last time so it's still anyone's game.

The Man
02-22-2004, 09:21 PM
I find myself sorely unable to choose. Either character winning this division would make me very happy.

02-23-2004, 12:21 AM
Just make it easy on yourself, Man. Vote Celes, since that's the obvious choice, anyway.

02-23-2004, 12:42 AM
Nay, I vote for Cid! Now Celes better hold on to her drawers and not piss in 'em because Cid's going to send Celes on a break where she can sit her ass down on a chair and drink her goddamn tea.

02-23-2004, 01:15 AM
nicely said, Sephiroth1999AD...but i vote for Celes :D her Paladin's Shield will protect her from all his attacks, then she'll clean out Cid's mouth with Ultima.

02-23-2004, 02:54 AM
paladin shield goes to Locke, though.

Here are the results and the winner of the 8-bit Division, moving to the Final Four:

Cid - ||||\|| 7
<b>Celes - ||||\|||| 9</b>

In a very close battle it looked like Celes edged out Mr. Highwind with a mix of Runic and powerful spells. She moves on to face the winner of the 16-bit Division, but first let's go to the Next-Gen Division. 16 more characters, but only one will make it to the end.

Remember to vote for one character per lettered pair.

02-23-2004, 06:06 AM
I can't believe Relm is a 15 seed and white wizard (ff1) is 14. They are both strong characters. However, Steiner beats WW. Tough matchup. Relm waxes Rinoa, though. Then she sketches a new copy of Rinoa and slaughters her too. Locke should also be much higher, but he can beat the crap out of Benjamin.

02-23-2004, 06:13 AM
Celes's victory makes me very happy.

I'm not familiar with a lot of these matchups, though, so I'll just vote on what I've heard over time.

02-23-2004, 06:33 AM
all the favorites should win, excpet Relm beats Rinoa.

02-23-2004, 06:40 AM

Now for the semifinals matchups!

Terra (VI) vs. Red XIII (VII)
It's the red beast versus the green haired half-esper. Both have their animalistic and human qualities. Will Terra be able to Ultima her way out of this repressed Cosmo Memory? Or is her time up with the Zozo clock strikes thirteen?

Locke (VI) vs. Rydia (IV)
The makings for an epic battle here, as we have a master thief versus a master summoner. Will Bahamut save Rydia before Locke is able to steal her clothes, leaving her stunned in nothing but her b. day suit?

02-27-2004, 07:27 AM

Now for the finals, an all FFVI finals:

Terra (VI) vs. Locke (VI)
Well it looks like two FFVI titans will battle it out for a spot in the Final Four. Terra has the magical and physical talents, but Locke could very well steal this one. Should be quite a match.

no way, Locke would just dodge all her attacks.

02-29-2004, 11:19 PM
But evade dosen't work in FF6, and she would only use magic anyway, and it's not like Locke can ever have enough HP to survive magic attacks, espically Ultima.

02-29-2004, 11:30 PM
what are you talking about evade doesn't work? My Locke (admittedly with Illumina and Paladin Shield, MArvel Shoes, and a Zephyr Cape) evades basically all physical and magic attacks. And he would survive ultima and lay waste on Terra.

Morph is dumb though. It's a much better skill in ff7.

Wow, this is going down to the wire. Come on Terra!

03-02-2004, 04:42 AM
I don't even remember who I voted for. I really liked both. Locke's my favorite guy character from FF, and Terra's my favorite girl.

03-02-2004, 07:26 AM
I voted Terra because the staff harrassed me until I relented tears streaming down my face oh the horror Fleance!

Here is your winner for the Next-Gen Division, and one of the Final Four!

Terra - ||||\|||| 9
<b>Locke - ||||\||||\ 10</b>

A battle for the ages, this was the closest one yet. Terra went for her ultima attack, but Locke quickly dodged and stole this victory away from the green haired mage! Looks like honesty doesn't pay.

On to the Wild Card Division with 16 new characters battling it out for a shot versus Locke in the Final Four.

03-02-2004, 07:55 AM
orlandu, zidane. faris, ninja, eiko, edgar, shadow, auron

Zidane? I hate you, eestlinc.

He's great but I think half of his awesomeness comes from his Excalibur. Regardless I still voted for him.

03-03-2004, 07:43 AM
Eiko is about 2000 times better than Edge.

03-03-2004, 10:04 AM
Yang and Onion Kid better pull this one out. Also, Ninja should have more votes.

03-03-2004, 06:57 PM
A. I didn't like Onion kids so much and I didn't play FFT that far, but I'll take Orlandu just because I've heard he's really powerful.

B. Zidane.

C. Vincent.

D. Here comes the Paine. This part is such a Paine-in-the-ass. Fine, I'll choose Paine.

E. Edge! Otherwise his could-become-a-girlfriend will end your reproductive years rather quickly.

F. I wouldn't like to support more FF6 characters (too many have already made it into the finals), but I don't know who in the blazes Tristam is, so I'll just vote for the pimp king.

G. Gah, again! I'd like to vote for Selphie just because she'll lose anyway, but she's a bit annoying whereas Shadow is pretty cool.

H. Go Auron.

Yes, Edge and Edgar are the battle of the ladies-men.

03-04-2004, 10:46 AM
Edge's lines are so much better than Edgar's. Don't belive me? "Whoa! I can't keep a pretty girl crying! *Rosa casts Cure2 on him* Say, you're hot too!" [Something like that, I haven't played all the way to that point in a while and my memory fades very fast] I only voted for Edge, beacuse the other FFs I haven't played are paired and I don't feel like picking a random one.

Del Murder
03-04-2004, 05:55 PM
I like Edgar better, but voted for Edge becuase we need to get those FFVI characters out of there.

Why does the Edge/Edgar match have 10 votes while the Orlandu/Zidane match has only 6 votes?

Flying Mullet
03-04-2004, 06:12 PM
My guess is people can't decide between Edgar and Edge so they voted for both.

03-04-2004, 06:41 PM
A. Zidane.

B. This choice is once again a Paine-in-the-ass. I'll choose... Vincent.

C. Edge! I want the flirt prince to beat the pimp king!

D. Auron. Just because he's the cooler man out of those two.

Del Murder
03-04-2004, 06:41 PM
Actually 10 people have voted, it says so at the bottom. So four decided not to vote in that match.

Another master thief has snuck his way into the division semis. This time Zidane hopes to trick his way around Vincent before the vampiric former Turk lets loose some Chaos punishment!

Edgar (VI) vs. Auron (X)
The FFVI characters stay strong and now Edgar tries to help the game take over this tournament. He has his work cut out for him, as he battles the legendary guardian, Auron! Will Edgar find the right tool before has Auron seen 'enough'?

Vincent was a decent story character. I don't think I ever really bothered using him much after I got him. His flying thing was cool but I couldn't really be bothered because I didn't find him very effective. xD

Del Murder
03-06-2004, 06:34 AM
I liked him because he used a gun and because he was cool.

03-06-2004, 06:35 AM
but for someone who used a gun, his attacks sucked majorly.

03-06-2004, 08:03 AM
I hate every FF character who uses a gun as their primary weapon.

03-06-2004, 08:48 AM
I'll go with Zidane and Auron. Vincent is cool, but Zidane's one of my favorite main FF characters (2nd only to Cloud, IMHO), and I'll go with Auron because he's a good character and because I don't want to see Edgar in the finals with the other FF6 characters.

03-06-2004, 03:51 PM
zidaine is much like me and auron is just smooth ya kno? lol

Vincent is one of the coolest characters from any FF. He deserves to win. The only characters "cooler" would probably be Sabin or Kain.

03-07-2004, 01:46 PM
*really doesn't like Edgar* In the last round, I voted Edge against him, and in this one, I voted Auron. And if he makes it to the final, consider my vote going to Zidane or Vincent. But if it was Locke, or Gogo or someone else cool from VI, then that would be a different story altogether.

He's weak in battle, and his personality is a complete rehash of that of Shadow in FFVI and Kain in FFIV. "Hi, I'm distant and aloof." How original!

How is it a rehash? Or any more a rehash than most the characters in this series? I don't see any similarites between him and Kain.

03-07-2004, 09:43 PM
They're both silent, brooding characters who have tragic pasts. Granted, it's almost a requisite to have a tragic past to be an rpg character, but both of them have pasts more tragic than normal.

Kain was the original silent, brooding RPG character (as far as I'm concerned) and he remains the best, with Shadow being a close second.

03-08-2004, 02:11 AM
die, The Man!

or have you not noticed that JUST ABOUT almost every FF char have a tragic past?!

Locke - lost Rachel

On to the finals:

Vincent (VII) vs. Auron (X)
A battle between guns and blades (but not gunblades), we have the vampiric Vincent versus the undead Auron. Will Vincent be able to transform himself into something that will stop Auron from breaking him in two, or will the death penalty be no match for the masamune? One of these two move on to the final four.

You can't compare 99,999 hit points to 9,999 hit points when comparing characters between games, it doesn't work that way. You have to compare them relative to their own environments (i.e the game that they are in). This means you're comparing an Auron that is at the maximum hit points points possible in his game with a Vincent that has the maximum hit points possible in his game. Which means that one isn't any more powerful than the other when it comes to hit points because they both have the maximum amount possible in the game.

Here is the winner of the Wild Card Division and moving on to the Final Four:

Vincent - ||||\|| 7

Vincent's shots couldn't find their mark, as master Auron used his swordsman skills to deflect and dodge. As a last ditch effort, Vince tried to turn into Chaos to strike the final blow, but in the process left himself wide open for the guardian's overdrive! Now Auron must prepare for his battle with Locke in the Final Four.

I saved the best for last, as the 16-bit Division is loaded. But only one can make it to the finals.

cloud is overrated.

#1. he started the whiny, angst-ridden/asshole protagonist trend that carried over in future ff games. (sure, cecil and terra had their own angst, but they never whined about it). cloud himself wasn't actually that bad, but squall and tidus certainly were. i swear if tidus asks one more pointless question, i'm going to smash the forking tv screen in.

#2. he spends half the game lying about who he is. maybe it's not a conscious lie because his memory's obviously been tampered with, but it seriously devalues his worth as a character. it might make him somewhat more human, but kain has the "human" thing going about him too, and it's done without the blatantly unidentifiable (to a lot of people) trait of having his memory screwed with.

kain is badass. not only does he have the ridiculously twisted past that he never once complains about, but #1. he's a dragoon, and dragoons own quite possibly every other character class out there, and #2. he isn't all flowers and goodness. he has jealousy and evil in him, and the story explores that very well. not only that, but his ending kicked ass.

aeris is somewhat overrated. she's not a bad character, but she's not the perfect goddess a lot of people make her out to be. bartz, on the other hand, is a :skull::skull::skull::skull:ing pimp. how could you vote against a pimp? it's just wrong.

i don't really care about the other matchups. actually strago doesn't deserve to advance, but he's not going to.

too many people haven't played ffiv and ffv. also, too many people vote for ffvii characters just because they're ffvii characters. the fact that vincent made it to the last battle of the previous round was a travesty.

How do you know Kain has such a twisted past? I don't remember much background given on him during the game. Cloud, however, is the most in-depth done character in all of Final Fantasy. Plus Omnislash can beat just about anything Kain can dish out.

It's not given in the game, it's given in the Japanese-only "Foundation Guide" that Square released awhile back. Kain's father's last wish was for him to become a Dragon Knight like him and restore the Highwind clan's honour. At some point, he began dating Rosa; when faced with the choice to become a Dark Knight, he had to decline, even though he wanted to bring honour to Baron. While he was away for training, Rosa took up with Cecil. Who was his best friend.

To: Mr. Mimic: yes, Aeris is beating Bartz. Aeris can use Planet Protector to make herself invincible and then beat his ass down with powerful materia spells :bgl:

yea but Bartz actually is worth levelling up. Levelling Aeris and her limits is so ridiculously beyond pointless.

When you get down to it, playing these games is pretty pointless.

Is today a new round day? I've lost track.

EDIT: Ok, I see where I screwed up. I went to fast on round one. That sucks, because there were some close battles in that round. Oh well.

of course it's all pointless, but levelling Aeris is even more pointless.

I've played the game 7 times and every time I level Aeris up to get her last limit. I don't know why, maybe because it is so awesome, maybe because I feel sorry for her and the road before her, or maybe just for completeness sake. Probably all of them, I get pretty sappy for the characters and I'm also one of those people that doesn't sell equipment so that he can have one of every item at the end.

It might be fulfilling, but it's still pointless. :p

once i get to the point that i don't have to use Aeris, she never sees my party again.

Yeah, she's cannon fodder anyway so why bother with her? I'd rather use Barret and Yuffie as you have to do solo boss battles with them.

Round 2 of the 16-bit division results:

<b>Cloud - ||||\|||| 9</b>
Kain - ||||\| 6

<b>Cecil - ||||\||||\|||| 14</b>
Strago - | 1

Bartz - ||||\|| 7
<b>Aeris - ||||\|||| 9</b>

<b>Rikku - ||||\||| 8</b>
Sabin - ||||\|| 7

Seminfinals coming up!

Cloud (VII) vs. Cecil (IV)
Two main characters battle it out in this one, with the paladin pitted against the mercenary. Can Cecil continue his momentum in this match, or will Cloud send him straight to the moon with a powerful Omnislash?

Aeris (VII) vs. Rikku (X-2)
Two ladies battle it out here. Will the planet protect Aeris enough to give her the strength of victory? Rikku may very well steal another one here.

I'm going with Cloud and Rikku.
