    Default Favorite "old guy" party member

    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?

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

    (SPOILER)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.

    Cid Highwind.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    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?

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

    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.
    Kefka's coming, look intimidating!
