    I don't care about Balthier (and hey, now it's my turn to say that I don't understand the appeal of a character!) and his shoes are smurfing stupid.

    But Rinoa is literally the worst. I mean, all of FFVIII is, but she's a stupid damsel and I hate that. And for what it's worth, her outfit is way more stupid than Balthier's stupid shoes.

    So basically I'm voting for Balthier because Rinoa can suck a butt.

    I could go either way with this. I feel like Balthier got basically designed as "cool guy" and the lack of humbling moments for him kind of annoyed me after a while, especially as his fandom grew and grew to the point that I felt he was overrated. But then there's Rinoa who is utterly infuriating at times and doesn't do too much to redeem herself at other times, but actually does have the odd endearing moment for me. So it's like opposites, I guess? I'll throw a pity vote at Rinoa because I feel like she's going to lose anyway by quite a distance and I won't really be bothered regardless of the result.

    Rinoa. I like Rinoa quite a bit actually. I like Balthier fine too but I feel he gets way more attention than he deserves. Rinoa it is.

    Not really a contest for me. I like both, but Balthier was fun, whereas Rinoa kind of went back and forth for me.
