Votes for Wakka
Attack Reels ya? - Henryacores^ 21:22, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
Since he's here, he might as well win! —MasterConjurer 21:29, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
Both characters are good, but I like Wakka more. Cluna06 21:54, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
Zell is a tool, Wakka is infinitely greater. One of the first characters to max out on attack strength, almost always hits aerial opponents, and he's fast. Granted, Zell is also fast, is decent when it comes to hit rate, and he has a good Limit Break. HOWEVER, his past is one of the more pathetic in FF8 (yeah, yeah, they all had the same past, but his is just bloody sad), his Limit Break is only awesome because it is a carbon copy of Sabin's from FF6; not to mention he does the unforgivable in making the Monk class look like a series of douchebags. Wakka on the other hand actually has a back story (while still weak, it is much better than Zell's), not to mention he's voiced by John DiMaggio, the guy that voices Bender from Futurama; THAT is win!! Besides, its pretty friggin hilarious watching a monster from the Omega Ruins get mauled to death by a single strike from a Volleyball. 'WELCOME TO JAMAICA, YA!!!' *BAM* Overkill! Hydronisa
Flipped a coin, guess what? Wakka won. ScatheMote 01:59, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
The amount of carnage this guy cand do with balls... Imagine what chaos he can do with real weapons Leon5550
Wakka is the best, ya. -- Copycatloki 13:54, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
I liked Zell but Wakka contributed more to X's story than Zell did VIII's and I found Wakka more useful in battles.-- Heretic Ramza
Wakka, no questions asked. He rocked a blitzball, and I didn't want to beat him every time he appeared on the screen :P SeraphSummoner 17:49, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Ya. This one will do. It was Wakka who gave Tidus the iconic weapon third only to Buster Sword and Revolver. Did Zell gave Squall the Revolver? No. P.M. 19:47, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Like Henry said, Attack Reels pwns. Get 12 attacks in one Overdrive for maximum damage and most enemies, even bosses, go down quicker, ya? His backstory also provided some insight into his past prejudices and passions, but what I like is the haircut and the voice work of John DiMaggio. --TexHowdy! 20:07, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Votes for Zell
I actually used Zell, even if I did hate him... Terra_Homing
Mr_Darkside Zell was just cool...when you first see him, Wakka wansn't at all.
Zell is cool no matter what. I have nothing to say about Wakka. --dudutsai
Zell is the most useful character in FFVIII. Armageddon Fist pwns all. ChaosEsperVII
Zell is tourettes on crack. And I love him for it. - DeadlySlashSword 02:20, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
BlueHighwind ツ: This isn't really a vote for Zell, or against Wakka, but rather a vote against Hydrosina.
Wakka is a cool dude, he's one of only two good characters in X's crapfest of a Main Party. But Zell is just oodles cooler. He's not married to Lulu, funnier, looks cooler. And it's ridiculous how broken his Limit Break is. Tifa wishes her's were as cheap. In the end Mr. Dinct gets too much flak for no reason in, as does Wakka. AnonyMan
Zell may not be the "best character ever", but he's from FFVIII so I gonna vote for my home dog! Squallinoa 08 03:28, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
I gotta go with Zell here, he was my favourite character from my favourite FF, how could I not? He's the comic relief, but he's also a great fighter, and although I really like Wakka too, it's gotta be Zell. BritBoyBritBoy 03:47, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
ChiefKakashi 04:37, 9 February 2009 (UTC): Uhhhh...His hair is less ridiculous...? I don't know, I haven't voted in a while and I've been playing VIII lately...
i like zell's weapon better, a ball or a fist, i'll take the fists Lost-myth 06:15, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Blitzball is stupid, Wakka is Stupid. They both somehow revolved around each other and create an endless chain of stupidity. Zell despite being from one of the worst games in the series is only just better than Wakka. Rocking Chair
Zell is somewhat better kind of.--BigCubby 12:27, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Zell's cooler. Myself 123 15:39, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Must say it was pretty cool when the party got locked up, and had their weapons taken away, all except Zell. Since his weapons are his fists after all. So it was awesome seeing him take charge for a while. Got to go with Zell for that.
Somebody try to convince me thar there is anything good about what either of these two do or who they are, and I'll vote for that person. --BlueHighwind ツ 22:40, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
Tell me Blue didn't just single-handedly start a war. —MasterConjurer 00:57, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
I don't think anyone is going to start a war because of these two, it's like fighting over Yuffie and Rikku... Terra_Homing 01:04, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Bad example. I happen to absolutely adore Yuffie and Rikku. —MasterConjurer 01:08, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Me, too. I think Yuffie and Rikku are great characters and yet they're both ridiculed because of how they were potrayed. Same goes for Zell and Wakka. Cluna06 01:14, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Congrats on being your own man, my friend. Supply your own example then... Terra_Homing 01:11, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
How 'bout fighting over Eiko and Relm? It seems very few people actually cared about that fight. Then again, Wakka and Zell are better than that, at the least. —マシタカンジュウラ 01:21, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Indeed. Nice Signature by the way ^^ Terra_Homing 01:34, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. I changed it like 45 minutes ago, because the disappearing spacebar was getting boring. Now both words alternate between English and katakana! I rather enjoy the <choice> tab. —マシタConjurer 01:56, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Just leave them both bloody and broken in a back alley OwlEye 17:12, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Don't care, picking Eiko because her ability doesn't glitch at every possible moment. ScatheMote 18:06, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
Once Eiko arrived she puts Garnet out of a job(two jobs even). Anyway she's a very cool character and funny as hell to boot. Relm's not bad though, but no where near as entertaining. AnonyMan 18:14, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
Hmm... I think Eiko wins this by a mile. He's really ticking me off! Can I kill him? What a bimbo!8bit 19:59, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
Eiko's summons are much better than Relm's petty pictures. Squallinoa 08 22:32, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
This girl sure is HORN-y! Get it!? ...Well, at least she has good taste in men. --Tacochickenwings 23:05, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
Truthfully, it's a hard call for me, but her altering summons, and being the "real" white mage in IX gives Eiko my vote. Holy, Phoenix, Fenrir wind and earth, and Carbuncle, plus her "I'm a grown up too" attitude just made her so cute. :) Junath
It was funny when she got her shirt caught on that banister in Alexandria Castle XD! Violetmage
Eiko is definitely the funnier of the two. A very sympathetic little brat. SamSandy 12:30, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Summoner. It says it all. -Alarielle- 23:27, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Eiko I would USE in battle. Relm? No. Eiko could summon, and to be able to whoop people with a flute? Simply amazing. User:Sera89
Maverick Riot: Even though her artwork is... interesting... and she could be quite annoying... she was all right I guess.
Hyacynth: I like them equally in terms of personality, but Relm has glitched my savefiles way too many times.
RedMage: She reminds me of my little sister. Despite this, shegets my vote for being a great healer and the only character in the series to directly refference potatoes.
Because she represented a breath of fresh air for me, when I played IX. #NeoSeth 11:39, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
Simply because I like art :P. Also, I really don't like Eiko's design. — YuanSaluto!Acta 06:38, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
I can draw, like her, but my drawings cant come to life, fight for me, or control others to... Leon5550
She wants do draw uncle Ulty!!! CookiePinguy 10:54, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
She can glitch your game and screw up your save file! SO MUCH POWER - dudutsai
She's Shadow's daugter. Myself 123 22:32, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
I was going to vote for Eiko, but Relm threatened to draw my picture. Ameria 05:26, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
only because ive only played FF6 AtmaCrisis 08:24, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
I don't know Relm, but she can't be any worse than Eiko. Eiko's useful in some battles, but the fact that she's stupid little girl in the story, just bothers me too much. Kupuntu 12:03, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Relm is more unique in battle. plus FFVI is one of the best games in the series Keiko2113
The single strongest spellcaster the seres has EVER seen. And Eiko is weak, although her theme song is better, and she still kicks ass. Not like Nomura's ditzes. They suck. --Crazyswordsman 17:39, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
Relm's freaking powerful, plus she's bloody adorable. Even without Sketch she's great, and Sketch is a silly fun move with epic implications if you're into haxglitches. And her music was really good. Dazuro 18:39, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
Lockhart - I'm not the biggest Relm fan, but Eiko just grates my nerves. I don't really know why. Gotta go with Relm.
I love them both, of course, but I love Relm a little more. Plus, I think she's a tad more unique in the FF world. Yzz 20:12, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
Hm, still nothing in the white box on the right. —MasterConjurer 20:47, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
Eiko is fuckwesome, but she's kinda lame as a fighter. And I haven't finished FFVI yet, so i won't vote.
Both of them could pwn Nomura's ditzes COMBINED. --Crazyswordsman 17:43, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
Is it just me, or is the DNC became really crappy? PhilipMccann 21:01, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
The great ideas are used up. We need a new weekly thing to do. —MasterConjurer 21:15, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
Why is Relm's box grey? o.O Wouldn't yellow be more suitable? Yzz 20:14, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
