    Nope ! The massive cast is one of the best things about FF6 because they were all so good even the minor ones had some charm about them.

    They struck a real fine line. I think it was a good amount, now that i'm approaching my current playthrough's end game and enjoying this 3 party dungeon.

    If they had a few more people it would have gone into Chrono Cross territory. But I loved that game, too, so it wouldn't be a bad thing. Maybe overwhelming, though. Only because I want to give each character time and attention.

    The game has more characters than your typical JRPG (certainly at the time) and also manages to give them better character development than a lot of JRPG's made since that had massive amounts of storage to include all of the dialogue and cutscenes they could come up with.

    So no, it wouldn't really have benefited from a smaller cast. If anything, it's better for having such a range of characters.

    The fact that the cast was so large, and they still had great development, is testament to how good a game FFVI is. They were all very diverse in their skill set as well as their background.

    They probably could have done without Umaro and Gogo but that's about it.

    There is no such thing as a game that isn't improved by the inclusion of a samsquantch.

    I know I shouldn't have laughed at that image as hard as I did, but it's too late to take it back.


    I didn't use Umaro and only got him because every one talked about him here. 3/10 was not impressed

    Great art of everyone ready for the final battle. Looking at this, there's no one I would want to take out.

    Figaro Bros. can kill everything. Pick two sprites to heal them.

    The cast of characters is what's appealing to me, their background story is amazing, their skill sets are all useful and I wouldn't change anything for the world on these guys.

    Great artwork, Lone Wolf Leonhart

    I wish I could see some more CG cutscenes, I usually just look at fan arts when I want to see the awesome cast of characters of FFVI

    Is this how Square treats its masterpiece?
