I feel this is one of the underrated matchups. The two latest protagonists in the main series excluding Final Fantasy XI and unreleased games have something in common: They're a lot more playful than those of past games. So, who would win?
OK ACTUAL DESCRIPTION TIME: On the 13th of May 2006, the great Man of Crazy Swords descended onto the Colosseum and saw naught, but one very lazy octopus. THIS, he said in flaming holy words, like great men in legend are wont to do, IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. So he told the octopus to gather a bunch of shmucks and let them fight for our adoration. And the octopus did, because you don't really argue with that kind of speech in legends.
And it was... OK, we guess.
For the record, when this fight was first run, Tidus won 8-5. As far as I can tell anons got counted as full votes at that time.

Even if Dissidia didn't exist, Zidane will always be superior to Tidus. Least he got far with his girl than crybaby did before the end of Disc 1. MechaKaiser, who else? (talk) 06:52, May 10, 2016 (UTC)
Hm, tough choice. I'd MUCH rather work with Garret's saiyan apprentice than Johnny Test here, who's probably wangsting over how Chuck Norris (His dad) ought to be nicer to him. Berani00 (talk) 11:12, May 10, 2016 (UTC)

I love the description and both of these protagonists. I'm a tad ashamed to admit that dadgum laughing scene from X plays a major role in my vote for Zidane.Free bird (talk) 00:20, May 11, 2016 (UTC)

He's upbeat, he's a talented athelete. Dude cooly accepted his fate like a MAN. Things he occasionally gripe about are way more legitimate than what most others cry about. I underrated him, he's underrated.--AnonyMan (talk) 23:11, May 10, 2016 (UTC)
I will admit, he is a character I grew up with and upon ending FFX, one of few characters that actually made me sad about what happens to him in the end. Crashb2007 (talk) 04:26, May 12, 2016 (UTC)
Zidane is an overall better character than Tidus, but in Dissidia 012 Zidane's battle style is lame compared to the dodge-style of Tidus! GoldenChocobo 11:48, May 14, 2016 (UTC)
Touché. At least you get good benefits. King of Noobs 01:07, May 11, 2016 (UTC)
Zidane's a great character no question. But it's amazing how much people exaggerate things they hate about Tidus still. He's a good character. AnonyMan (talk) 01:31, May 11, 2016 (UTC)

You're trying to compare a god to Tidus, Tidus is always gonna look like complete shit in comparison. -- SomeColorMage ~ (Talk) 10:31, May 12, 2016 (UTC)
Uhhhhhh...yes, I am. Really nothing wrong with him when you get right down to it. He's done alot for a guy who kinda technically didn't exist. Also moot point, 90% of FF looks like shit compared to Zidane. Loll. AnonyMan (talk) 00:14, May 13, 2016 (UTC)
CHAMPION RED (supposedly) FINAL FANTASY VII W O W H E W O N B Y H A L F A P O I N T
LAST MAN STANDING
CHALLENGER ORANGE FINAL FANTASY IX D A M N T H A T ' S C L O S E
This is a duel for the ages. A duel between over a very important principle. That is to say, colors. Garnet, wearing her weird orange jumpsuit thing, is the champion of the color orange. Therefore, Garnet has challenged Red XIII on the basis that he is not actually red, but orange. Garnet stipulates that Red XIII must either swear fealty to the Secret Society of Horrid Orange Attire or must dye himself red to match his name. Red XIII objects on the following points 1. it's his fur, not an attire 2. some random spiky haired guys just decided to call him Red XIII. Garnet remains unmoved.
The fate of the Secret Society of Horrid Orange Attire is at stake! It's up to you! Who will be the last color standing?
It's not that necessarily I don't want to see Garnet naked, it's that legally I am unable to comment on the situation one way or another. My lawyer advised me not even to bring up the subject, then lept out the fifth story window to his short yet probably very painful death. But before his untimely passing he mentioned the Red XIII is naked already and that should be enough. --BlueHighwindツ 13:05, May 5, 2016 (UTC)
And on this fine day where the DNC is only two and a half days later (somehow???) we come to a match against two of Final Fantasy's more recognizable princesses: in one corner, we have the traditional fish out of water, no street smarts princess. And then in the other corner, we have strong, independent gender equality princess. There's something for young girls of all ages!(I just hope there aren't any young girls reading this page right now, considering some of the other stuff the Committee gets up to.) Just one question remains.
Why does the traditional princess have an orange jumpsuit, while the strong independent one is wearing a tiny pink miniskirt?
Something something whatever. I'm exhausted from PAX East articles, I kinda want to see Ashe naked and I think if I admit to this nobody will arrest me. If I said that about Garnet I expecting handcuffs. So Ashe wins. --BlueHighwindツ 02:47, April 27, 2016 (UTC)
I do not mean to burn Garnet when I say this, but at least Ashe does not stop being useful at all in XII, whereas Garnet does lose usefulness at one point in IX. Besides, Ashe is a character I did like in FFXII Plus, she does do a good job of leading Dalmasca's set of freedom fighters. Crashb2007 (talk) 22:23, April 27, 2016 (UTC)
Wow, this is a very tough choice. They're both memorable and intriguing princesses and I actually don't know which one I like more. I'm voting for Ashe because of the sword she's carrying in this picture.Free bird (talk) 23:03, April 27, 2016 (UTC)

This week in the DNC (a week being a period of time ranging from 7-14 days), we will feast like kings on fish and octopus. Yummy! Fine voters, eat your fill, let your stomach distend and gorge yourself silly on seafood. It shall be a feast fit for octopus (and fish) royalty.
Also, the gods (meaning me) are displeased because I did not win two weeks ago. I shall bring swift vengeance upon thee. All those who voted against me shall suffer a most terrible curse: you shall never again find a matching pair of socks. Slowly but surely, your sock collection will always be odd numbered no matter how hard you try, and you will face the scorn and torment of your peers by means of your multicolored socks. It is a fitting punishment for those so foolish. The fight is still below and you may correct your mistake to free yourself from the curse.
I like this fight because not only has Ultros been added predominantly for comedic affect, he is also a really cool character. Leviathan is a legend in the franchise.Free bird (talk) 00:01, April 13, 2016 (UTC)

Awww I was hoping for Sabin to face off against Everything or Donald Trump. Still gotta vote for Sabin, even if suplexing a train was a bug and not somthing he could do he held up a house for 5 minutes! --Ffgamesftw (talk) 17:01, April 10, 2016 (UTC)
I'm voting for myself here. I am in the subset of all things not Scathe. Unless I'm his hallucination. Unless we're all Scathe's hallucination. In which case this BATTLE IS A FRAUD. HEXED, YOU LIAR! DAMN YOU. --BlueHighwindツ 13:05, March 21, 2016 (UTC)

Back in the good old days of the Roman Empire, people would have gladiators fight and kill lions to the roaring sound of spectators.
This is exactly what's going on here, except there are no Romans, no gladiators, no lions, and no spectators. There is a man who thinks he's an animal and an animal who thinks he's a man. and a colosseum, I guess.
Red "Anakin Skywalker" XIII Final Fantasy VII MAN ANIMAL WINS
Although not a big fan of either character I decided on each characters best scene. Red XIII had one of my favorite scenes with the events in Cosmo Canyon. On the other hand Gau had the nice scene with his father in WoR. While Gau's scene is great I have to give the edge to Red XIII. --Ffgamesftw (talk) 22:27, March 15, 2016 (UTC)
My favorite character from the FF7 Compilation. I'd have preferred he would've had considerably more screen time and a bigger part of a story than he did in the rest of the Compilation, but I understand. I found Gau's scenes annoying, but I liked him in battle.Free bird (talk) 00:29, March 16, 2016 (UTC)
