|I don't know what sense there is to this fight--I think the suggestion was something like Lulu is all nice and Squall is clueless--but will you take your emo sliced or with a side of milk?||WINNER!|

yeah badasses are getting annoying now, this seems to be a good fight the votes are neck to neck
Ack! Another fight I find myself unable to vote on! I failed to participate last time due to total apathy, but this week I genuinely can't decide between them. Squall probably has more of a personality than Lulu, and is actually my favourite protagonist - from the small part of VIII I have managed to play (and I find myself struggling to like the game itself) Squall has actually made more sense to me than any other character in the game, and possibly the series. I find myself reading into the overabundance of elipses, and when he does talk, I know exactly what he means (tip: Replace some of the elipses with "WTF?", and you're halfway there). However, I do tend to struggle in battle, and having not played further than Disc One prevents me from making a fully informed decision. On the other hand, Lulu has less of a personality, though what does exist is generally agreable. Using her Black Magic spells is practically half the game won already, and she does wear That Outfit. So generally all good, but I can't really come to a decision because of that. So yay, and also boo. The Man In The Black Cape 17:35, September 23, 2009 (UTC)
I understand the connection! They both wear way too many goddamn belts! (Square-Enix Producer: "Can we add more belts to this character? There's just not enough damn belts on this person. More belts please." Character Designer: "Sure! How does a few hundred extra unneeded belts sound?" Producer: "That's a start.") What's up with all the fucking belts? Their clothes are too tight to fall off. This is not Soul Caliber, where clothing is made entirely of belts and jock straps.CodeNameRedXIII 17:42, September 23, 2009 (UTC)
I hate the word emo. Simple as that. It's the name of an image that people give themselves because they think pretending to be depressed is cool. On that note, neither of these two are emo anyways. Lulu is just goth. Squall is just quiet and moody, not depressed. JohnnyC 21:57, September 23, 2009 (UTC)
-oh...i didnt know that either of them were a music genre, because you know....thats what emo is
People who say that one of Lulu's pluses is Dualcast should try and play FFVIII, cast Triple magic, and Triplecast with anyone. "The Dualcast is better" reason compared to a character from FFVIII is just...stupid. SquallisbetterthanCloud 09:16, September 24, 2009 (UTC)
The word "emo," when applied to either of these characters, is illogical. For that matter, "goth" is too, even if it is more apt. We're using words that relate to people and have connotations (either good or bad) which exist in our world, not the respective Final FANTASY worlds in which the characters live. In Lulu's eyes, she's not gothic at all. Just a lady with red eyes and black clothes, and she's not the only one who fits this description (Paine). And Squall has never referred to himself, nor have his friends ever referred to him, as "emo." The terms "emo" and "goth" are an individual's way of defining themselves, and neither Lulu nor Squall used those terms. So lets stop pigeon-holing and simplifying them. These characters have a depth which surpasses shallow terms like "emo" and "goth," and whether you like or hate them, they stand as individuals, not members of a certain "emo" or "goth" subculture that exist in our world.CodeNameRedXIII 15:49, September 24, 2009 (UTC)
Who is the anonyomous retard who put a vote for Lulu on the Squall side of the line, not even in the voting section, and several light-years from the anon votes section. The Man In The Black Cape 18:47, September 25, 2009 (UTC)
Oh joy, another one sided fight. I lost count. I think this is the fourth one in a row? TheBlueDragoon 02:35, September 26, 2009 (UTC)
How come is someone able to add coments and edit something below the line that goes "DO NOT ADD COMMENTS OR EDIT ANYTHING BELOW THIS LINE!!!". United Nations Organization should start thinking about licenses to surf the internet.Zak Undersn 15:35, September 26, 2009 (UTC)

|It's another spell battle: Drain versus Osmose or Aspir or Syphon or whatever you want to call it. Which is more useful?||WINNER!|

I want to point something out. There are plenty of ways to replenish a characters HP; namely, any version of the Cure spells, any of those different types of potion, and Drain. Most of which are very easy to get a hold of. MP, however, only has ethers (which tend to be either exceedingly rare, or in a limited number) and Osmose. So, in the sense that Osmose is the best way to regain MP, but there is better ways of recovering HP, Osmose is better than Drain. I also point out that while Elixirs and the such regain both, they are rarer than even ethers. So yeah.12:29, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
Maybe this is just me, but I kind of hope the next battle is less of a one-sided battle. :/ ClixPsi Not voting. The battle is sort of meh, but that's not why. In general, neither spell is very good. Depends on the enemy, depends on the game. That being said, Lancet wins.Neo Bahamut 01:40, September 11, 2009 (UTC)
Abstaining from voting since this was my proposal. Plus I like both spells too much to have to pick a favorite. x.x -- File:FFIII-nes-sage.gif Saethori (T / C) - 18:09, September 11, 2009 (UTC) I vote lance Oni Dark Link 18:22, September 11, 2009 (UTC)
now that i think about it i never used these spells, except to test em out (thats once each). Flaremmm
Damn, this is the third one sided fight in a row. I'm not complaining, its a damn good fight, I'm just making a general observation. TheBlueDragoon 00:24, September 12, 2009 (UTC)
Honestly I find both spells completely useless. The only time I've ever had to use them was in desperation during a boss battle, and they barely give me anything.--DarkTriforce 18:03, September 13, 2009 (UTC)
Both spells per-se are just lame, the cool thing is to use its side-effects (Drain junctioned to attack, HP/MP Absorb materia, Spellblade...). In these cases, one usually excels and the other is just barely useful, guess which?Zak Undersn 13:33, September 15, 2009 (UTC)
Hmmm...toughie. Only used Drain in VIII (as a status attack junction) and Osmose in XII (yes, I know it's called Syphon there, but hey) and even then only during superbosses and the like. I don't use them enough really be fair to either. Plus I only use Lancet in X if I desperately need the MP (Dark Magus Sisters, for example) TomServo101 15:04, September 16, 2009 (UTC)
I don't know about osmose's MP requirement, but as long as you don't fuck things up, you lose like...2. And, in Crisis Core, it costs 0 MP. Just seems like kind of a moot point, to me.Neo Bahamut 02:08, September 17, 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, Lance from FF5 is better than both Osmose and Drain. Even if only because it's both those spells at once without using MP. 18.104.22.168 22:55, September 18, 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, but now I really must put my two Gil's worth in. Osmose = Fail, Drain = Fail, right? So...
Lancet = (0.5 x Osmose) + (0.5 x Drain) Lancet = (0.5 x Fail) + (0.5 x Fail) Lancet = (0.5 + 0.5) x Fail Lancet = (1) x Fail Lancet = Fail
Lancet = (0.5 x (MP-Free-Osmose)) + (0.5 x (MP-Free-Drain)) Lancet = (0.5 x (0.7 x Fail)) + (0.5 x (0.7 x Fail))
Lancet = (0.5 x (0.7 x Fail)) + (0.5 x (0.7 x Fail)) Lancet = 0.7 ([0.5 x Fail] + [0.5 x Fail]) Lancet = 0.7 (2 [0.5 x Fail]) Lancet = 0.7 (1 [Fail]) Lancet = 0.7 x Fail
All people who actually calculate this kind of stuff = fail.
56½ to 21½

Votes for Steiner
Votes for Wakka
I'm back. And I missed 2 good fights. Albeit, the whole Sin vs. Vegnagun thing was depressingly one-sided. In any case, I have no clue who Steiner is, but I doubt he developes as much as Wakka.Neo Bahamut 06:25, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
This fight is pointless... btw, I though BH was long gone?? Am I having an illusion?Winged Lion 20:58, September 1, 2009 (UTC)
Ouch! Another fight where I'll have to think. Good suggestion Jeppo. TheBlueDragoon 21:28, September 1, 2009 (UTC)
If they wracked their brains a little, I'm pretty sure they could've come up with a better weapon for Wakka than a ball. Did I mention how satisfying it was to beat the guy to a pulp in Kingdom Hearts? JohnnyC
