Balthier was originally considered to appear in ''[[Dissidia Final Fantasy (2008)|Dissidia Final Fantasy]]'', but was left out as he had recently appeared in ''Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions''. [[Vaan/Dissidia (PSP)|Vaan]] was set to appear in his place, but was ultimately replaced by [[Gabranth/Dissidia (PSP)|Judge Gabranth]].
