  1. YAY FIRST VOTE! Kain is horribly broken if you know how to use him. And even if you don't, he's still awesome. C A T U S E 04:24, January 24, 2012 (UTC)

  10. Uh...hmm. I never understood people's absurd hard-on for Kain, or why they're convinced he's SUCH a BADASS, he's not. He's okay. But Fang has it worse because XIII has a terrible cast and she's no exception. She's like the only dragoon I would pick Kain over.AnonyMan 20:44, January 24, 2012 (UTC)
  11. ケフカパラッツオ 21:09, January 24, 2012 (UTC)
  12. As useful as Fang was in FFXIII battles, Kain is a better character. His repeated betrayals, and failure to join the party after Zeromus is defeated, really show his character development. Plus I used him to kill the weaker version of Feral Chaos in Duodecium. (haven't beat the stronger one... yet.) On the other hand, I found Fang's character somewhat lacking in depth. Also her survival, along with Vanille's was questionable at the end of ff13. Long story short, I think Kain is the superior character. --Time Master 21:33, January 24, 2012 (UTC)

--Contributions/ 19:44, January 24, 2012 (UTC) i have to vote for fang because of her strong will and power. Sure both Kain and Fang betrayed their respective parties, but Fang did it out of her own free will rather than be controlled by an unknown source and she did it for Vanille so props to you Fang

  8. Don't really mind Squall. He's not very cool until later in the game and he doesn't become that much better. Cecil's the same except he was okay from the start. I'll go with C-Man, 4's story wasn't all over the place and it doesn't have a shoddily developed romance.AnonyMan 22:46, February 2, 2012 (UTC)
  9. Cecil hands down.Dissidian 23:00, February 2, 2012 (UTC)
  10. Squall might be better in battle, but Cecil has by far the better personality. And not anywhere near as much Twilightesque romantic drivel. C A T U S E 00:01, February 3, 2012 (UTC)
  11. I don't understand the hate for Cecil. The fact that he can maintain his cool through betrayals and repeatedly forgive the actions of others (some in Mysidia never forgave him) makes him a strong character. On top of that, for combat purposes, Cecil is capable of taking on Odin alone and winning, when Odin fights back. (I've done it.) Finally, paladin into porn. Amusing and a nice twist to his otherwise holy character.Dogurasu 01:06, February 3, 2012 (UTC)
  12. The half-lunarian paladin versus the guy with a gunblade who I must admit I know nothing about, outside of Dissidia? I would say Cecil would win. He seems to be far more powerful, and looks cooler. He also appears in the superior game series. Shade.Usher 01:53, February 3, 2012 (UTC)
  13. Cecil easily. Also TAY didn't SPIT on his redemption, spoilers. The creator brought back his darkness, he already overcame and defeated it, how is that an "apiphany" that he shouldn't have let it go?? Another thing is that people say that Cecil gets no more development after Mt. Ordeals. WRONG. PLAY THE GAME. He gets development in the form of Golbez, FuSoYa and his heritage ALL the way to the end of the game with his farewell to Golbez. So that's crap when people say that he only develops during the first half of the game.Tinks1 02:14, February 3, 2012 (UTC)

  1. Cecil would win hands down. You can't compare game mechanics from VIII with IV. Also for the person who said that Cecil gets more and more pathetic as IV goes on. I'd like to see you beat FFIV WITHOUT Cecil. Sure you could with Kain, Rydia, Rosa and Edge but when it comes down to it Cecil is BY FAR the best character overall to have in battle. You can't beat Zeromus with three characters at around level 60 unless Cecil and Rosa were in it. Also around level 70 Cecil and Rosa could take on Zeromus with just them two. Like I said beat IV with a three man group without Cecil and then we'll talk. Cecil is not only the best character from the game plot-wise but also best character in battle. Tl;dr, Cecil would wipe the floor with Squall's lame emo ass. 23:10, February 2, 2012 (UTC)

  4. While FAR from a FFVIII fanboy (in fact, it's one of my least favorite games of the series,) props must be given to the man who does his best for everyone while trying to do it alone. Also props for managing to remain sane while "traveling" with Bartz and Zidane. Plus, he has a cool father. King of Noobs 14:23, February 2, 2012 (UTC)
  5. Well this has more to deal with 1. In battle Cecil is the most pathetic and often completely useless character, Squall remains balanced throughout the game where Cecil becomes more and more pathetic as the game progresses (due to his lack of any strength, defense or useful abilities). Two; while Cecil has the better personality, Squall has Laguna...nuff said User:Sutebenukun/Sutebenukun 10:27, February 2, 2012 (UTC)

  7. Cecil would get his pansy ass kicked so ridiculously fast. - +DeadlySlashSword+ 18:14, February 2, 2012 (UTC)
  8. Squall is easily the best fighter in ff8; especially considering the damage potential of Renzokuken: Lionheart. Squall is also a very dynamic character who undergoes great change throughout the story of ff8. Cecil changes symbolically by becoming a Paladin; but his attitude is essentially the same from the beginning. Also, Cecil may have saved the blue planet and the moon(s), but Squall saved Earth for his time period; and for THE FUTURE. --Time Master 21:19, February 2, 2012 (UTC)
  9. FFVIII is entirely built around the development of Squall. Discs 1-3 are a character examination, and it works. Cecil, meanwhile, only gets development in the first arc. Squall is a far more interesting character. ClixPsi 22:08, February 2, 2012 (UTC)
  10. LegendCrystarium Crystal LightningAqua 00:10, February 3, 2012 (UTC)
  11. Many people give Squall flak for being whiny and misuse of the "e-word", but he's a far deeper, better developed and more interesting character than people realize, as well as being a strong fighter. Cecil is also a strong fighter, but his path of personal redemption is heavily simplified and entirely forgotten once he becomes a Paladin, and The After Years further kinda spits on his redemption with the apiphany that he was wrong to cast off his darkness. So Squall gets my vote. Drake Clawfang (talk) 00:48, February 3, 2012 (UTC)
  12. Squall is badass with a badass weapon. Although I like Cecil, Squall would have the upper hand in a fight. Vercery 01:36, February 3, 2012 (UTC)

  19. On pure character development (and not mechanics of gameplay) I think i preferred Squall. I found myself connecting with him much more than Cecil, and I think his reluctant nature to open up to his friends provided a central plot line for FFVIII. You're left wondering when he's going to crack open. A much better character portrayal than Cecil. Luacas 03:12, February 7, 2012 (UTC)

I took Squall and screwed around with the junction system to get as close as i could to the same abilites (even the exact spells that Cecil has) and went one-on-one with the evil which and lasted untile that attack that brings you down to 1 HP and than got killed. Squall will always have my vote. 22:44, February 6, 2012 (UTC)(UTC)

I know this space isn't at all intended for Keltainentoukokuu's lolpinions but...eeh...I think it is very interesting to have a main character in a game like Final Fantasy through whom to explore issues of social anxiety. Something that is quite common, but not much seen in media, at least not in the form of the main protagonist in a "classic rags to riches hero story" (might be that I follow the wrong media though). Of course, there is the issue that as the player surrogate Squall must be able to communicate with people, so it is dressed as severe dislike of doing so rather than inability, but which he rationalises to himself as something he doesn't want anyway.

Votes for Agrias

  1. Partially a pity vote because nobody here plays Tactics for some reason, partially because if they had the same damage limit Agrias would beat Cecil every time.C A T U S E00:39, January 16, 2012 (UTC)

  25. Agrias is the most useful character in Tactics until Orlandeau is in the team. Her abilities and motive to follow Ramza in her journey are enough and cover all the personality issue. The only thing that makes Cecil more known is that his game is in the main series and he is the protagonist of FF IV, because if he was a secondary character like Agrias, almost nobody would ever remember him. The True Paladin 11:45, January 28, 2012 (UTC)
  26. Let's think about this for a moment; Cecil as a Paladin can do what? Barely protect someone due to his lack of any defense and use rather rudimentary healing and supportive abilities. What can Agrias do? Now let's look, she can stop people with an ice blade attack, instantly kill someone with divine wrath, silence her loud mouthed enemies with the bolt of Heaven, cause someone to want to repent their sins by dying with her sword of penance (split punch) and oh yeah, reign down the wrath of the Gods upon her contest here Sutebenukun 12:00, January 28, 2012 (UTC)

  3. 16:33, January 16, 2012 (UTC) Agrias may not have been as central to the plot of Tactics, after Delita takes Ovelia, but she definitly kicks butt. I'm voting for her because the Lucavi are a heck of a lot scarier than Zeromus. All Hail ULTIMA! MUJAJAJA

@Dogu: Nah, she doesn't stand a chance because people never played Tactics. Oh, and sign your votes this time, all ye anonymous users! :DC A T U S E01:05, January 16, 2012 (UTC)

I always felt like...Agrias has just hardly any personality. Her whole character is that she is a female knight, which is just a bit more novel than having a male knight. If she was a male knight and still said and did all the same things, no one would remember this character.Keltainentoukokuu 03:36, January 16, 2012 (UTC)

Now, let's be fair here, that's sort of calling the kettle black. Cecil's personality is basically the same as Agrias's, in that it is transparent and vaguely knightly. The only difference is that he happens to be the protagonist of his story, and he kind of has to be redeemed before he can parade around with the same attitude as her. Also, Agrias's personality is kind of novel in FFT, where she is one of like 10 named characters who will not betray or attack you in pursuit of their own goals. Jimcloud 03:49, January 16, 2012 (UTC)
I guess when I said personality I didn't mean the person's actual personality. More like when you say has personality or something. I don't have any strong feelings toward Cecil, but he's alright. He's the typical knight archetype but they add some conflict in his story to bring out different sides of him.Keltainentoukokuu 03:58, January 16, 2012 (UTC)

So I was wrong. Agrias is winning after all.C A T U S E17:06, January 16, 2012 (UTC)

Ditto, I expected Cecil to dominate like he did in the last round, but its good to see that I'm one of many Agrias fans! Must there be a winner in these Last Man Standing duels? What would happen in case of a tie? Free bird 20:46, January 16, 2012 (UTC)
Probably it can only tie if the two have an exact equal amount of points in the end, and that isn't gonna happen.C A T U S E22:15, January 16, 2012 (UTC)

Ooooooh it's a tie at the moment, i was expecting this to be a landslide in Cecil's favour, well i guess it just goes to show that he was more bad arse as a Dark Knight XD.AaaaaThe Nemesisx 13:37, January 17, 2012 (UTC)

If I did my DNC math correct, it's Cecil:27 to Agrias:25. I'm amazed she's doing so well, to be perfectly honest. The Tactics series isn't as well liked as some others. King of Noobs 14:15, January 22, 2012 (UTC)

Its actually tied once again, if you count all the signed anon votes both of them come up as 29 each way, damn it people, vote for Cecil XD.AaaaaTheNemesisx 14:18, January 22, 2012 (UTC)
Actually, the anonymous votes each count as one-half a vote (last I checked); thus, Cecil is in the lead by two. Dogurasu 16:09, January 22, 2012 (UTC)
They're pretty close together, so I think they're tied by the 10% clause. C A T U S E 23:08, January 22, 2012 (UTC)
Now they're both at 28. I wonder how this'll end, since this is a "Last 'Man' Standing" contest. King of Noobs 14:12, January 24, 2012 (UTC)

(TA will probably get ticked that I'm writing this, but to be frank, I'm gonna bet anons have no idea what are going on): The DNC is currently in a state of flux, without all its ducks in a row as far as management and the like is. So if you see the DNC changing from one fight to another, that's why. C A T U S E 00:33, January 25, 2012 (UTC)

So much back-and-forth in this fight. One moment, Cecil has the lead. Next time I check, Agrias has taken control. Next moment, it's back to Cecil. Good fight, we could do with more of these than the one-sided ones. King of Noobs 05:42, February 2, 2012 (UTC)
