Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

Final Fantasy VEdit

  • The Dimensional Shift resembles Interdimensional Rift.
  • Sol resembles Bartz Klauser by being the young protagonist, chosen by the crystal. Both are carefree and have no love interest. Their hometowns are similarly named: Bartz's hometown is "Lix," while Sol's is "Lux."
  • The sound effect used for Ceres's voice is the one that Hiryu uses.
  • The bond between Barbara and Ceres is similar to that of Faris Scherwiz and Syldra: all four are females, and Barbara and Faris care for their friends. Both creatures die, but grant the party a reward at some point: Syldra becomes a summon monster, while Ceres unlocks the Dragoon job from Abel's Spear.
  • The scenario at Dragonweed Gardens in Final Fantasy Dimensions alludes to a similar one in Final Fantasy V where the party ventures to Drakenvale to get dragon grass to heal an injured wind drake, but the plant is poisonous to humans.
  • In the battle between Freyr and Asmodai in Yggdrasil, Freyr will not die even if his HP has been reduced to 0, similarly to what happened with Galuf at the Guardian Tree during his battle against Exdeath in Final Fantasy V.
  • Elgo's use of the power of Nil is similar to Exdeath using the power of the Void, both users suffering similar fates while their respective powers turn on them. He also wears armor similar to Exdeath's.
  • Much like Final Fantasy V, the world is split into two and the two groups can receive their jobs via crystal shards.
  • The iOS and Android versions redesign the attire of the Black Mage and give them more of Final Fantasy V appeal by standardizing the color robe for both genders as blue and adding five-point star and crescent moon adornments for the hats.
  • The room where the player obtains rewards for defeating Ω Weapon resembles the room where the Sealed Weapons are located in Final Fantasy V.
  • The battle against Odin alludes to Final Fantasy V: whose Odin was fought under a countdown, counting down to Zantetsuken.

Final Fantasy VIEdit

  • Vata in a final battle against him as Nil Vata says that "he's like the wind...he goes wherever it takes him", referring to Shadow from Final Fantasy VI.
  • Three of the Warriors of Light must traverse through an underwater tunnel to get to another town, much like Sabin Rene Figaro, Cyan Garamonde, and Gau.
  • The Attune Blade works the same as Celes Chere's Runic Blade.

Compilation of Final Fantasy VIIEdit

FF Dimensions Aerith Reference

Aerith reference.

Final Fantasy IXEdit

Final Fantasy XEdit

Final Fantasy AdventureEdit



  • While not named so, Despair, Suffering, Misery, and Anguish are based on Genbu, Suzaku, Byakko, and Seiryu of the Four Symbols of the Chinese constellations. These constellations were used as the Four Fiends in The Final Fantasy Legend, but this is not a direct reference.

Anime and MangaEdit

Power over 9000 alba FFD

Allusion to Dragon Ball Z.

  • When seeing the Dark Flow, Alba says: "Its power level is over...well it's like nothing I've ever seen!" This alludes to the "It's Over 9000!" catchphrase derived from the Dragon Ball Z series. The catchphrase is typically used as an innumerable quantifier.


  • A non-player character says "I used to be an adventurer like you. Then I took...never mind. You wouldn't be interested." "I used to be an adventurer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee" is a line that may be randomly said by guards in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The line went memetic during the game's development, but quickly grew hated due to how often it was used and is now considered a dated joke.
  • One of the monsters in the final areas is called "Mother Brain", the antagonist of the Metroid series.



  • Gramps predicts Alba is wearing a Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, like the 1960 song by Brian Hyland.
  • After trading a tail to the Tail Gnome, he will sometimes say a variation of the line "Hips don't lie and I'm starting to feel it's right" from the song Hips Don't Lie by Shakira.

Western AnimationEdit

  • Alba paraphrases the catch phrase of Inspector Gadget when she says "Don't worry about it, chief, Alba is always on duty!"


  • Smokey Bear is a mascot of the United States Forest Service created to educate the public about the dangers of forest fires. His slogan is "Only You Can Prevent Wildfires". In Final Fantasy Dimensions Alba says: "So much for 'Only you can prevent forest Firagas'!"
