    "Tie-dus". I mean I get that "Tee-dus" is the proper Romanization, but new name changes aren't news.

    Butz sounds like butt. Teedus sounds like teet. This must be stopped!

    Teedus is not the proper Romanization. Romanization would mean you write it like that which is not the case. He is shown as "Tidus" even in Japan. It is just that the pronunciation is different.

    His VA pronounces it "Teedus" (as in tedious) - or did in the bonus stuff with the game anyway.
    It'll always by TIDEus to me though. Sea/surfer theme and all that.

    The proper pronunciation is "new guy" Auron was very clear about this. You may also shorten it to "him", but that's only for close friends and family.

    Blitz players... what ya gonna do, eh?

    It's pronounced "tedious". Or "this whiny new guy whose name even his girlfriend can't remember".

    (SPOILER)This is how the voice actor pronounces it, though, starting from 2:20.

    I may be experiencing a Mandela Effect, but I swear the last time this topic came up someone pointed out that Square Enix changed how they pronounced his name in later Kingdom Hearts games, and it was only spoken as Teedus in the first game, so it made all the arguing moot. But I haven't played any Kingdom Hearts past the first one so all I have is a memory of this discussion and no proof to base the claim on

    It is not that Square Enix changed it. Selphie just mispronounced it. In Dissidia and the Audio Drama they call him Teedus again.

    When the game first came out and I played through it, I always said "Tie-dus" but more quickly. Having watched trailers and interviews of voice actors, I've come to know that it's "Tee-dus", but the way I had always pronounced it always sounded cooler to me so I've stuck with it when saying his name.
