    2 is wrong. FF V has the first Sequel actually, Legends of The Crystals. You are right if you mention a direct sequel that's a game though.

    5 is wrong. In FF VIII GF's level up..

    10 is also wrong. In X-2 the Mascot dressphere use dolls as well. Interesting to note that dolls were planned weapons for Relm in FF VI but were cut from the game during development.

    10. Yuna is the only Final Fantasy character to have heterochromia.

    22 First FF where 1 character can have access to all abilities in the game at once.
    23 First FF where all characters can have access to all abilities in the game - minus summons - at once.

    Both of these are wrong. In FF III and FF V each character can master each class to get all abilities, as well as Gogo mimicking everyone's in FF VI.

    (Nothing personal with me pointing out the wrong ones, Wolf wont be reading this thread so someone has to do it )

    In FFVII, Yuffie can use a 'superball' as a gag weapon. Nonetheless, FFX is still the first title to feature balls as a weapon type.

    30. FFX is the first FF where one romantic lead actually says "I love you" to the other (though not in the Japanese dialogue, apparently).
