Cid (シド, Shido) is a character that has appeared, or at least mentioned, in all Final Fantasy-related media; the main series, spinoffs, film and anime. Cid has become somewhat of a Final Fantasy trademark, as with Chocobos and Moogles. He leads the list of recurring characters, which include Biggs and Wedge and Gilgamesh. However, each instalment features a different Cid character, and his roles in the series also range widely from non-player character to antagonist.

In Final Fantasy tradition, Cid characters are often mechanically minded and frequently portrayed as engineers or inventors. They are often the source of the airships the player uses toward the game's end. A Cid is often several decades older than the main cast, and is often portrayed as a fatherly figure. A common trait is for a Cid to either have a biological daughter (such as Cid Pollendina from Final Fantasy IV or Cid from Final Fantasy X) or adopt one (such as Cid Del Norte Marquez from Final Fantasy VI or Cid Fabool IX from Final Fantasy IX).
