    There have been quite a few times in the Final Fantasy series where you just stared at the screen and thought “what the heck did I just play”. Using magic doesn’t phase you. Strange creatures don’t phase you. These moments though? These make you just audibly say, “What the smurf?”

    5 Final Fantasy VIII’s Concert

    In VIII, Selphie and Irvine try to set up a date for Squall and Rinoa as well as celebrating his new command position. You get the lovely task of selecting instruments for the remaining cast to play on this date. It’s all a variation of Eyes on Me but each instrument has a bit of a different tune. You can have a lovely celtic sounding composition, or possibly a Jazz one. Or, like many players, you'll end up with a sound that causes weaker willed people’s ears to bleed.

    Oh and a very awkward laugh to be had about it? A porn magazine is involved. Being the nice guy he is, Irvine leaves Squall a magazine to help him get Riona and Squall “in the mood.” Yeah. YEAH.

    Song and dance are powerful tools. They can be used to express oneself, used to protest, used as a social activity and used as a career. And, where Final Fantasy is concerned, can be very versatile and valuable weapons. Today we look at the power of song and dance, tools used by Bards and Dancers to combat foes, enhance their allies’ strength and ultimately have a cracking good time while doing so. Let’s take a look at these underrated classes, and some of the characters who embody the power and passion of a performance. Let’s start with the humble bard, shall we?

    Sing Me A Song, Piano Man
    Bards are probably best known as the folk who sing tales of heroes and dragons and all sorts of fantastic legends. That’s true enough, but the bards of Final Fantasy do more than just tell tales; they live them. We have a broad line-up, so let’s jump straight into it! The Onion Kids show off their bard outfits. Classy, ain't they?

    The Onion Kids (III)
    The original bards, the Onion Kids of Final Fantasy III receive the bard job from the Water Crystal. In the NES version of the game, the bard class is used purely to provide buffs to the party. However, in the DS remake, the bards can also damage enemies by using their Sing command, which changes depending on the harp equipped. In addition to harps, bards can also equip knives, though this limits the effectiveness of their Sing command.
    Prince Edward of Damcyan. Monarch, Musician and, uhh, Lover.
    Edward Chris von Muir (IV)
    While the origins of the bard class lie with the Onion Kids of Final Fantasy III, this is perhaps the first sight that western audiences received of the bard class. Edward, also known as Gilbert and Gilbart in some lands, is the crown prince of Damcyan. As such, he ...
