Edgar: "...How old are you?"
Relm: "Ten...Why? Weirdo. I'm going on ahead, okay?"

— Edgar and Relm, Final Fantasy VI

Hmm... I suppose a normal girl would have felt something from those words. But...not me...
Terra after Edgar flirts with her, Final Fantasy VI

I'm better off waiting here for the executioner. At least that way I'll keep my pride...
Celes, Final Fantasy VI

Cyan: "Do not think for even a moment that I trust thee!"
Celes: "Fine. Use your own eyes, and see for yourself which side I'm on."

— Cyan and Celes, Final Fantasy VI

I don't know any more than you do. These powers just come naturally to me.
Terra, Final Fantasy VI

Please...tell me! Who am I? Who!?
Terra to the frozen esper, Final Fantasy VI

Espers... heed my call..
Terra opens the Esper Gate, Final Fantasy VI

How dare you tease a little girl like that! If anything happens to her, I'm not going to forgive you!
Terra helps Relm deceive Ultros, Final Fantasy VI

I don't know why these kids need me... And it's not like there's anything forcing me to protect them. It's the strangest feeling...
Terra in Mobliz, Final Fantasy VI

Did you really think I was gonna check out before you, you old geezebag!? Ha-ha-ha...
Relm to Strago, Final Fantasy VI

Because it's not the end that matters! It's knowing that you have something to live for right now, at this moment! Something you've worked for... something that's worth protecting! As long as you have that...that's enough!
Terra, Final Fantasy VI

Why do you build, knowing destruction is inevitable? Why do you yearn to live, knowing all things must die?
Kefka Palazzo, Final Fantasy VI


If this is all a dream, don't wake me up.
Cloud Strife, Final Fantasy VII

I know...nobody lives in the slums because they want to. It's like this train. It can't run anywhere except where its rails take it.
Cloud, Final Fantasy VII

All right everyone, let's mosey.
Cloud, Final Fantasy VII look like a bear wearing a marshmallow.
Cloud, Final Fantasy VII

Finger? What the hell!
Cloud, When the in-game tutorial places a finger-like cursor above his head, Final Fantasy VII

This guy are sick.
Aeris, Final Fantasy VII

Oh, these? Do you like them? They're only a gil...?
Aeris, Final Fantasy VII

Sit your ass down in that chair and drink your goddamn tea!!!
Cid, Final Fantasy VII

Maybe God'd forgive an ugly shit like you, but I won't!
Cid, Final Fantasy VII

Be careful of forgetfulness. Your lucky color
Cait Sith, Final Fantasy VII

Look, don't even ask! We're way way way way far away from being there, ok!?
Tifa, Final Fantasy VII

Cloud: "It's just that you're always so cold, I thought you didn't care what was happening"
Vincent: "Cool? Hmm...I guess that's just how I am, sorry."

— Vincent returns to the party, Final Fantasy VII

Sephiroth: "I'm far superior to the Ancients. I became a traveler of the Lifestream and gained the knowledge and wisdom of the Ancients. And soon, I will create the future."
Aeris: "I won't let you do it! The future is not only yours!"

— At the Temple of the Ancients, Final Fantasy VII

Vincent: "I have nothing to say."
Yuffie: "That's okay, it was probably depressing anyway."

— Vincent and Yuffie talk, Final Fantasy VII

Cloud: "You look great, just like a man."
Jessie: "Yay!! I'm happy!...I think?"

— Commenting on Jessie's disguise, Final Fantasy VII

A memory is something that is consciously recalled, right? That's why sometimes, it can be mistaken or wrong. It's different from a memory locked deep within your heart.
Tifa, Final Fantasy VII

Out of my way. I'm going to see my mother.
Sephiroth, Final Fantasy VII

Because...of our actions...many.....people died.....this our punishment...
Jessie, Final Fantasy VII

Oh, really, don't you know? These days all it takes for your dreams to come true is money and power.
President Shinra, Final Fantasy VII

Just lookin' at you is makin' me sober.
Reno to Cloud, Final Fantasy VII

A pro isn't someone who sacrifices himself for his job. That is just a fool.
Reno, Final Fantasy VII

I don't like two-legged things.
Red XIII, Final Fantasy VII

Shut up.
Cloud Strife, Final Fantasy VII

Hahahaha... Shut up.
Cloud, to Vincent, Final Fantasy VII

Even the moon'd tire of waitin' around for your ass!
Cid, Final Fantasy VII

No, come to think of it, if I had to, I'd put my faith in science. Because of science, humans who used to crawl around on the ground can now fly, and soon we're about to go into space! I've earned my living thanks to science, so to me, there's nothing greater.
Cid, Final Fantasy VII

Cloud...sign this. It's a contract that says when the war is over, all the materia will belong to me.
Yuffie, Final Fantasy VII

People are ignorant. They'll feel better as long as someone is punished.
Rufus, Final Fantasy VII

Is that all you can do...? Give one word answers and apologize for everything? Do something. I'll be expecting results.
Rufus, to Heidegger, Final Fantasy VII

That why you started sleepin' in a box? Gimme a break!
Barret, to Vincent, Final Fantasy VII

I've been itching to ask you this for a long time. When you blew up the Sector 1 reactor, how many do you think died?
Reeve, to Barret, Final Fantasy VII

I know you got problems... hell, we all do. But you gotta understand that there ain't no gettin' offa this train we're on, till we get to the end of the line.
Barret, to Cloud, Final Fantasy VII

What's my number?
Cloud, Final Fantasy VII

I always thought this planet was so huge. But lookin' at it from space, I realized it's so small. We're just floatin' in the dark. ......kinda makes you feel powerless. On top of that it's got Sephiroth festerin' inside it like a sickness. That's why I say this planet's still a kid. A little kid sick and trembling in the middle of this huge universe. Someone's gotta protect it. Ya follow me? That someone is us.
Cid, Final Fantasy VII

I'm... Cloud. The master of my own illusionary world. But I can't remain trapped in an illusion any more... I'm going to live my life without pretending.
Cloud, Final Fantasy VII

Look always to the eternal flow of time which is far greater than the span of human life. It will teach you more, than staying here in the valley... What you will see will eventually become part of the life's dream.
Bugenhagen, Final Fantasy VII


Do you love me?
Tifa to Cloud, On the Way to a Smile

There are those who can give much more pain than those bearing weapons.
Denzel, On the Way to a Smile

Since that's the case, we'll live on. We'll live on until we pay back for our sins. It's the only way.
Barret, On the Way to a Smile

Barret, On the Way to a Smile

You know, man, the monsters' den might be somewhere inside me.
Barret, On the Way to a Smile

Goddamn piecea shit! I'm gonna flatten you into last week's scrap!
Cid, On the Way to a Smile

God? You haul his ass down here, I gotta have words with him.
Cid, On the Way to a Smile

Aerith brought that child to us, didn't she?
Tifa, about Denzel, On the Way to a Smile

Barret: "Cid, what am I supposed to do?"
Cid: "Well for starters, you can fix that."

— Barret fires at Cid's roof, On the Way to a Smile

Cloud: "I want to drink alone."
Tifa: "Then drink in your room."

— Tifa finds Cloud drinking, On the Way to a Smile


Is this the pain you felt before...Cloud? Let me remind you. This time you won't forget.
Sephiroth, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

It's Jenova's friggin' head!
Reno to Kadaj, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

Your Ma 's cool. Wait, what the hell am I saying?
Reno to Kadaj, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

Tell me what you cherish most. Give me the pleasure of taking it away.
Sephiroth to Cloud, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

Good to see you...Cloud.
Sephiroth to Cloud, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

I pity you. You just don't get it at all. There's not a thing I don't cherish!
Cloud to Sephiroth, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

I've thought of a wonderful present for you. Shall I give you despair?
Sephiroth to Cloud, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

I will...never be a memory.
Sephiroth, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

Mother came to this planet after a long journey, to rid the cosmos of fools like you!
Kadaj to Rufus, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

My you're dying to watch.
Kadaj, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

So what if I'm her puppet? Once upon a time, you were too!
Kadaj to Cloud, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

Dilly dally shilly shally. Isn't it time you did the forgiving?
Aerith to Cloud, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

You're going to give up and die. Is that it?
Tifa to Cloud, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

Where can I buy a phone?
Vincent, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

Son of a bitch!

Vincent: "I've never tried."

Rufus: "Cloud, you're an ex-SOLDIER, aren't you?"
Cloud: "In my head."

— Rufus asking Cloud for protection, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

Embrace your dreams, and whatever happens, protect your honor as SOLDIER. Ok, so you never made SOLDIER, but it's whats in here that counts.
Zack, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete

Well, you need a hand with 'im? You already beat him once didn't you? This should be a cinch.
Zack, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete

A good son would have known.
Rufus Shinra to Kadaj, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

Don't pretend you're sad. Why mourn for something that's not even there? Face it, Cloud. All you are is an empty puppet.
Sephiroth speaking in Cloud's mind., Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete


Use brings about wear, tear, and rust. And that's a real waste.
Angeal, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Embrace your dreams. And, whatever happens, protect your honor as SOLDIER.
Zack, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Wings symbolise freedom for those who have none. They don't symbolize monsters.
Cissnei, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Sephiroth, have you lost weight?
Angeal, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Mother, they're here again. You should have ruled this planet. You were stronger, smarter. But then they came... Those inferior dullards... They came and took this planet away from you. But don't be sad, Mother. I am with you now...
Sephiroth, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Aerith? Listen, can I call you back? I have some company.
Zack as Genesis summons Bahamut Fury, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

No,'re not the Sephiroth I once knew.
Zack, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

I have twenty-three tiny wishes, but you probably won't remember them all, so I put them all together into one: I'd like to spend more time with you.
Aerith Gainsborough, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

I am the chosen one. I have been chosen to rule this planet.
Sephiroth, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

No way...he just ate my hair.
Zack, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Cloud, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

No story is not worth hearing.
Angeal, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Whether your words are lies created to deceive me, or the truth, that I have sought all my life, it makes no difference. You will rot.
Sephiroth to Genesis, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Would you say I became a hero?
Zack Fair, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Zack: "Genesis! So you are alive!"
Genesis: "I suppose, if you can call this living."

— At the Nibel Reactor, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Dreams of the morrow hath the shattered soul. Pride is lost. Wings stripped away, the end is nigh. Such is... the fate of a monster.
Genesis Rhapsodos, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

I see... you've finally made your decision. I'll respect your wishes, old friend. However... Can you really live on that side?
Genesis to Angeal, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Then what should an angel fight for, Zack? What do angels dream of? Angels dream of one thing... To be human.
Angeal, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

One day, I'll take you to see a beautiful sky, the real sky. It's not frigtening at all. I know you're gonna love it.
Zack to Aerith, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

I was thinking it would be a normal day, but then suddenly... Some guy fell out of the sky.
Aerith, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Those wings... I want them, too.
Zack, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Zack: "My is she?"
Cissnei: "She's worried. She thinks after all this, you won't be able to find a wife."

— At Gongaga, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

The lust for vengeance that had so consumed my life is all but gone now. In it's place... is a desire to help you, a desire to save Genesis... No, it's bigger than that. I...I want to save the world.
Lazard, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Zack: "Oh, what is that? They spoil him too much!"
Tseng: "Why don't you say that to his face?"

I don't see Sephiroth today, but...are you game?
Genesis, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Unattainable dreams are the best kind.
Lazard to Zack, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Boy oh boy... The price of freedom is steep.
Zack Fair, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-


It's save the world.
Vincent, Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII-

Great. Snipers.
Vincent Valentine, Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII-

Yuffie to Cid, Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII-


Why do people depend on each other? In the end you're on your own.
Squall, Final Fantasy VIII

To tell you the truth... I worry too much about what others think of me. I hate that side of me... That's why I didn't want anyone to get to know me. I wanted to hide that side of myself. I hate it. Squall is an unfriendly introverted guy. It made it easy for me when people perceived me that way. That's a secret between you and me. Got that?
Squall, Final Fantasy VIII

It's our nature. There is no real reason...maybe we were born...only to fight...
Squall, Final Fantasy VIII

I'm not having anyone talk about me in the past tense!!
Squall, Final Fantasy VIII

As long as you don't get your hopes up, you can take anything... You feel less pain.
Squall, Final Fantasy VIII

Reality isn't so kind. Everything doesn't work out the way you want it to.
Squall, Final Fantasy VIII

Right and wrong are not what separate us and our enemies. It's our different standpoints, our perspectives that separate us. Both sides blame one another. There's no good or bad side. Just two sides holding different views.
Squall, Final Fantasy VIII

I dreamt I was a moron...
Squall after dreaming he was Laguna., Final Fantasy VIII

I hate having nothing to do. It gets me thinking too much.
Squall Leonhart, Final Fantasy VIII

...A speech? Forget it. Cut the mic!
Squall when Nida offers to let him address the Garden as its newly promoted commander., Final Fantasy VIII

No matter what happens, even if you become the world's enemy, I'll be your knight.
Squall to Rinoa, Final Fantasy VIII

Squall, Final Fantasy VIII

Squall, Final Fantasy VIII

Are you listening, Squall?
Rinoa, Final Fantasy VIII

You're-going-to-like-me... You're-going-to-like-me... Did it work?
Rinoa, Final Fantasy VIII

Oh, what an easy life it must be, just to follow orders...
Rinoa, Final Fantasy VIII

Y'know, when you start thinking, you tend to frown like this *imitates Squall*.
Rinoa, Final Fantasy VIII

You know... You're always too deep in thought. Why don't you lighten up a little? It's not good to think too much.
Rinoa, Final Fantasy VIII

I don't want the future. I want the present to stand still. I just want to stay here with you...
Rinoa to Squall, Final Fantasy VIII

Squall, it's not like everyone can get by on their own, you know?
Quistis, Final Fantasy VIII

If you think and worry too much, everything tends to turn out bad.
Quistis, Final Fantasy VIII

You know, the boys often choke on this test when I come with them. I guess my charm makes them nervous.
Quistis, Final Fantasy VIII

Well, Zell was riding his T-Board in the hallways of Garden. He made a sharp turn and went straight into the woman's res...
Quistis while recalling Zell's "famous" incident, Final Fantasy VIII

We're on your team, Instructor. Let's kick some ass!
Zell, Final Fantasy VIII

Why don't you try to show a little more passion...? You know, like me!
Zell, Final Fantasy VIII

D-Do you have dogs left?

...I... I did it, everyone...! I know the stage got destroyed, but I performed... My dream band... I was able to carry out my dream...
Selphie talking to a friend's grave, Final Fantasy VIII

Sharpshooters are loners by nature... We hone our instincts, pour our whole being in a single bullet. The pressure of the moment... An instant of tension... That's what... I have to face alone...
Irvine, Final Fantasy VIII

Someone might not be there. Someone you love may disappear before your very eyes. It's tough when you live your life thinking that way. But that's why I fight...
Irvine, Final Fantasy VIII

You've all heard this before. How life has infinite possibilities. I don't believe that one bit. There weren't many paths for me to choose. Sometimes, there would only be one. From the limited possibilities I faced, the choices I made have brought me this far. That's why I value the path I chose... I want to hold true to the path that HAD to be taken.
Irvine, Final Fantasy VIII

Thanks for the support, but I never miss my target.
Irvine, Final Fantasy VIII

It's not like I drifted here on the tides of fate. I'm here because I chose to be here.
Irvine, Final Fantasy VIII

The way I see it, as long as you make it out of a battle alive, you're one step closer to fulfilling your dream.
Seifer, Final Fantasy VIII

Listen up! Teamwork means staying out of my way. It's a Squad B rule.
Seifer, Final Fantasy VIII

This is great... I have a Chicken-wuss and a guy who just reached puberty in my squad...
Seifer, Final Fantasy VIII

This is reality. No one can help you. Sit back and enjoy the show.
Edea, Final Fantasy VIII

...Lowlifes. ...Shameless filthy wretches. How you celebrate my ascension with such joy. Hailing the very one whom you have condemned for generations. Have you no shame? What happened to the evil, ruthless sorceress from your fantasies? The cold-blooded tyrant that slaughtered countless men and destroyed many nations? Where is she now? She stands before your very eyes to become your new ruler. HAHAHAHAHA. A new era has just begun. This is reality. No one can help you. Sit back and enjoy the show.
Edea to the people of Deling City, Final Fantasy VIII

But...who cares!? I speak with passion, from the heart! That's what matters most.
Laguna, Final Fantasy VIII

Oh well, nothing's cheaper than something free.
Laguna, Final Fantasy VIII

And so, Laguna runs for dear life.

POSSE... We are. We always will be. Because we're a posse, we want to help you. Whatever it takes to fulfill your dream, we're willing to do.
Fujin talking to Seifer, Final Fantasy VIII

I heard that you guys are, like, mercenaries, and basically fight anybody for money. Are you happy with that kind of life?
―Citizen of Fisherman's Horizon, Final Fantasy VIII

Quistis: "I'll be announcing the squad assignments for the exam now. Let's see... You'll be with... Zell Dincht. Quite a lively fellow."
Squall: "Lively? He's just loud. Can't I switch members?"

— before the SeeD field exam, Final Fantasy VIII

You can find out things about the past that you never knew. And from what you've learned, you may see some things differently in the present. You're the one that changes. Not the past.
Ellone, Final Fantasy VIII

SEED...Swarming like lokusts!
Ultimecia about SEED, before the final battle, Final Fantasy VIII

I am Ultimecia. Time shall compress... ...All existence denied.
Ultimecia during final battle, Final Fantasy VIII

Life and death, victory and defeat, honor and disgrace... Each of these go hand in hand. There's only one way or the other. How 'bout it? Are you still up for it?
Headmaster Cid, Final Fantasy VIII

Oh how I love thee Instructor Quistis, I cannot sleep at night thinking of your radiating beauty, that is why I am always falling asleep in sinful you are...

Ahhh! Damn it! Y-You're just a big loser! I'm able to skip the rock as many times as I want! So there! Ha-Ha! Loser! Moron! Idiot! Your mum wears combat boots!

Come on, Princess. Let's ditch Sir Rustalot and get outta here!

You're all a bunch of babysitting bastards! But trust me, I know that I'm the worst bastard here.
Zidane to his friends, Final Fantasy IX

Sometimes you can't think everything out. You have to listen to your heart.
Zidane, Final Fantasy IX

Yo pops, I'll have the stupid special.
Zidane, Final Fantasy IX

T'is foolishness! If all were so easy, why, none would suffer in this world!
Zidane performing in I Want to be Your Canary, Final Fantasy IX

I have to find out who I am... I'm scared... What if I'm not even human...?
Vivi, Final Fantasy IX

Bah! Only a flesh wound!
Steiner, Final Fantasy IX

Yeah! What's there to think about!? She's cute...and she's in trouble. That's all that matters.
Zidane, upon deciding to search for princess Garnet in Evil Forest., Final Fantasy IX

Rusty!?! I am Sir Adelbert Steiner of Alexandria!
Steiner, Final Fantasy IX

I'm not here to help. I just want it to be fair.
Amarant, Final Fantasy IX

The answer you seek may forever change your life for the worse.
Freya, Final Fantasy IX

World very simple place. World only have two things: things you can eat and things you no can eat.
Quina, Final Fantasy IX

Ooo, soft!
Zidane when he brushes Garnet's rear, Final Fantasy IX

There no munchies here, sand taste good though.
Quina, Final Fantasy IX

You stand here say nothing, then you just like other dummy-dummies! No can tell difference!
Quina, Final Fantasy IX

Don't eat me! I won't taste good!
Eiko, Final Fantasy IX

I'm not gonna cry! I'm a grown-up now, and crying won't help one bit!
Eiko, Final Fantasy IX

Garland? Ooooo, THAT's a sinister name!
Eiko, Final Fantasy IX

So, this must be Garland's haunted about bad taste in interior decorating.
Zidane, Final Fantasy IX

Why should the world exist without me? That wouldn't be fair. If I die, we all die!
Kuja, Final Fantasy IX

Her ugliness and stupidity are impressive.
Kuja about Queen Brahne, Final Fantasy IX

The weak lose their freedom to the strong. Such is the way of the strong. And it is the providence of nature that only the strong survive. That is why I needed strength.
Kuja, Final Fantasy IX

Peace is but a shadow of death, desperate to forget its painful past... Though we hope for promising years. After shedding a thousand tears, yesterday's sorrow constantly nears. And while the moon still shines blue, by dawn, it will turn to scarlet hue.
Kuja, Final Fantasy IX

I once killed a hundred knights single-handedly... To me, you two are nothing more than insects.
Beatrix, Final Fantasy IX

Allow me to shatter your delusions of grandeur.
Beatrix, Final Fantasy IX

Aiya! What big stone! Why you all watch stone? Is stone edible? Or is for barbecue? No answer... I think I lick it. You no answer, so you no mind, right? Hmm... Is very salty.
Quina, Final Fantasy IX

Get off me you scumbag!
Princess Garnet, Final Fantasy IX

This cowgirl's wilder than a buckin' bronco!
Ruby, about Princess Garnet, Final Fantasy IX

He's really ticking me off! Can I kill him?
Eiko, about Soulcage, Final Fantasy IX

Think for a moment... Isn't life death itself? It must kill other life-forms to survive... Sometimes it even kills those with whom it shares blood... To live is to give life meaning, yet one must take others' lives to survive... A mature civilization becomes aware of this paradox...
Garland, Final Fantasy IX

I hate kids.
Amarant, Final Fantasy IX

You stand before the final dimension, and I am the darkness of eternity... All life bears death from birth. Life fears death, but lives only to die. It starts with anxiety. Anxiety becomes fear. Fear leads to anger...anger leads to hate...hate leads to suffering... The only cure for this fear is total destruction.
Necron, Final Fantasy IX

I am long as there is life and death.
Necron, Final Fantasy IX

Is the will to live that powerful?
Necron, Final Fantasy IX

This is my home. This is the place I call home. The man is still looking for his birthplace. But he already has a home.
Zidane, Final Fantasy IX

In the end, it boils down to two simple choices. Either you do or you don't. You'd think with all the problems in this world, there'd be more answers. It's not fair... but that's the way things are. The choice is yours.
Zidane, Final Fantasy IX

I shall petition for a life sentence on his behalf. Yes, that would be the honorable thing!
Steiner, Final Fantasy IX

Mother... Zidane... No... I can't depend on them anymore! As the queen of Alexandria, I must protect my kingdom.
Garnet, Final Fantasy IX

If it weren't for you, I probably would've led a meaningless life. With you, I was able to see so much of the world and meet so many people.
Garnet to Zidane, Final Fantasy IX

I'd rather die as a warrior than live as a beggar.
Amarant, Final Fantasy IX

Ugh... I'm gonna die anyway... I won't have to be afraid anymore... But I refuse to die alone. You're all coming with me!
Trance Kuja prepares Ultima, Final Fantasy IX

Whatever. Like you have a plan.
Amarant, Final Fantasy IX

Fratley... You never came back... You've left me with nothing except rumors of your death. I couldn't believe it! I still won't believe it! Never. Not until I witness proof of your death with my own eyes. And I will travel across the world forever if I must...
Freya, Final Fantasy IX

Good food not only delicious! Good food made with heart! This very important when cooking for friends!
Quina, Final Fantasy IX

Mwahaha... So the curtain rises! Perfect, my canary. Let me show you the truth about your mother! First Act: The End of the Ugly Desire. It's showtime!
Kuja, Final Fantasy IX

Peace is but a shadow of death, desperate to forget its painful past... Though we hope for promising years. After shedding a thousand tears, yesterday's sorrow constantly nears. And while the moon still shines blue, by dawn, it will turn to scarlet hue.
Kuja, Final Fantasy IX

What comedy! Zidane, isn't it hilarious!? I'll die just like the black mages I so despise! I single-handedly brought chaos unto Gaia, but in the end, I'm nothing but a worthless doll! ... I won't let it happen. I won't... I won't let this world exist without me!
Kuja, Final Fantasy IX

My sweet angel, come to me. I will take you to a world of dreams.
Kuja, Final Fantasy IX

I commend your courage, but I shall show you no mercy.
Beatrix, Final Fantasy IX

I don' t know... Fear? I don't want to stop. And maybe I want to run away from it all. But living in the village with everyone fills me with joy. The joy of living with them far outweighs the fear of death. Isn't it the same for you? Traveling with your friends gives your life meaning.
―Black Mage No.288, Final Fantasy IX

I don't think we build cemeteries for the dead. Sure, it may seem pointless to you, but... How can I describe it? It's so that we can think like this: "We'll never forget you. We'll remember you every time we stand at your grave. And we won't let the fear of death, which each of us knows, stop us from living our lives. Because my friends will remember me when I'm here."
―Black Mage No.288, Final Fantasy IX

I'm telling you, she was too shy to hand me the letter herself! And if you don't think I'm a ladies' man, you're wrong. Chicks are intimidated by good-looking guys.
Blank, Final Fantasy IX

Life is connected, one to another... If you trace the root of all life, there exists one source.
Garland, Final Fantasy IX

I'm kupo for kupo nuts!

Zidane: "If you need to, you can cry, too, Garnet. My shoulder's always available."
Princess Garnet: "Yeah, thanks."

— When Eiko almost cries, Final Fantasy IX

Princess Garnet: "No, no. We're just friends."

Kuja: "Spare me the lecture. Lives come and go all the time. What's the big deal?"

Gee... you're a soldier for cryin' out loud.
―Old Man to Steiner, Final Fantasy IX

It's been six months since I started living in Conde Petie... The food here is great, and the people are very nice. Kupo. But... But... The only thing I can't get used to is the 'Rally-ho!' I keep saying 'Rally-kupo!'
Mognet letter, Final Fantasy IX

We live not to forget our past, but to learn from it!

Chivalry requires a knight to look after his comrades-in-arms. I will not abandon you! And I shall follow you to kingdom come if I must. You remember that!

Now! This is it! Now is the time to choose! Die and be free of pain or live and fight your sorrow! Now is the time to shape your stories! Your fate is in your hands!
Auron, Final Fantasy X

Your pain shall be twofold!
Auron, Final Fantasy X

This is for the fallen!
Auron, Final Fantasy X

Fine, we rest. She's worse than the storm.
Auron, about Rikku, Final Fantasy X

I am the trouble maker, after all.
Auron, Final Fantasy X

The fayth are the ones that give power to the summoners—not the temples or the teachings. If the temples try to stop us, then we will defy Yevon if we must.
Auron, Final Fantasy X

This is my story. It'll go the way I want it...or I'll end it here!
Tidus, Final Fantasy X

I thought about a lot of things, like...where I was, what I'd got myself into. I started to feel...light-headed, and then, sleepy. ... I think I had a dream—a dream of being alone. I wanted someone—anyone—beside me, so I wouldn't have to feel alone anymore.
Tidus, Final Fantasy X

I want to be a blitzball when I grow up!
―NPC, Final Fantasy X

Tidus and Yuna, Final Fantasy X

No matter how dark the night, morning always comes, and our journey begins anew.
Lulu, Final Fantasy X

Interesting. I suppose I could add you to my list. I wish you good luck, little boy. You're going to need it.
Lulu when being flirted by Tidus, Final Fantasy X

Heh! You got tall, but you're all bones! You eatin' right boy?
Jecht, Final Fantasy X

Come to kill the old man? I welcome it!
Tromell, Final Fantasy X

To destroy—to heal—Spira, I will become Sin.
Seymour Guado, Final Fantasy X

You say this is your story, but it's my story, too, you know.
Yuna, Final Fantasy X

Thinking isn't getting us anywhere!
Tidus, Final Fantasy X

We call it Sin.
Auron to Tidus, Final Fantasy X

Tidus: "Newbie here!"
Wakka: "Sorry!"

— In battle, after Wakka calls Tidus a newbie up against fiends, Final Fantasy X

I hate this place.
Auron, Final Fantasy X

O'aka the Twenty-third, merchant extraordinaire at your service!
O'aka XXIII, Final Fantasy X

My thoughts exactly.
Lulu to Wakka, Final Fantasy X

Live and let live!
Tidus, when fleeing from battle, Final Fantasy X

Listen to my story. This may be our last chance.
Tidus, Final Fantasy X

No promises there, big guy. Hey, but what if she, like, comes on to me?
Tidus talking to Wakka about Yuna, Final Fantasy X

Every blitzer knows: when you got the ball, you gotta score!
Tidus, Final Fantasy X

People die, and Yuna dances.
Tidus, narrating on the sending, Final Fantasy X

Lets go to the sea, before sunrise. The city lights go out, one by one, the stars fade, then the horizon glows, almost like it’s on fire. It's kinda rose-colored, right? First the sea, then it spreads to the sky, then to the whole city. It gets brighter and brighter till everything glows. It’s really pretty. I know you'd like it.
Tidus describing Zanarkand to Yuna, Final Fantasy X

So this is what it feels like. It's a much more wonderful feeling than anything I had ever imagined. Wonderful...but it hurts sometimes. I wonder. I just want to say thank you for everything. Maybe that's why it hurts. When I think about us never being together again at all, I'm afraid.
Yuna, Final Fantasy X

I only have as many guardians as there are people I can trust. I trust them all with my life! To have so many guardians is a joy, and an honour! Even more so than being my father's daughter.
Yuna, Final Fantasy X

I fight for Spira. The people long for the Calm. I can give it to them. It's all I can give. Defeating Sin, ending pain... this I can do.
Yuna, Final Fantasy X

It would be so let my fate just carry me away...following this same path my whole life through. But I know...I can't. What I do, I do...with no regrets.
Yuna, Final Fantasy X

My father... I loved him. So I... I will live with my sorrow, I will live my own life! I will defeat sorrow, in his place. I will stand my ground and be strong. I don't know when it will be, but someday... I will conquer it. And I will do it without... false hope.
Yuna, Final Fantasy X

The road is ahead of us, so let's start out today. Just, one more thing... the people and the friends that we have lost, or the dreams that have faded... Never forget them.
Yuna, Final Fantasy X

If we should get separated, just whistle. I'll come running. I promise.
Yuna to Tidus, Final Fantasy X

This is the only time! The players fight with all their strength: the fans cheer for their favorite team. They forget pain, suffering... Only the game matters!
Wakka, Final Fantasy X

Hope is comforting.
Yunalesca, Final Fantasy X

Our new victory! To win every match, defeat every opposing team! To bring the Crystal Cup back to our island! That's all we need to do to win! Easy, ya?
Wakka, Final Fantasy X

Sin is cursed. Sin prays. It curses its form, it prays for dissolution. Sin sees dreams of its own destruction. Sin is looking at us. We live in a fading echo of time left us by the destroyer. Free him from Yu Yevon. Free him....the fayth that has become sin.
Valefor's fayth, Final Fantasy X

Well, well, well! If it isn't the Besaid Aurochs! They're a living, breathing, statistical impossibility! I've never seen a team this bad!
―Bobba the blitzball announcer, Final Fantasy X

I wanted to change the world too, but I changed nothing.
Auron, Final Fantasy X

Memories are nice, but that's all they are.
Rikku, Final Fantasy X

Yu Yevon was once a summoner, long ago. He was peerless. Yet now he lives for one purpose: only to summon. He is neither good, nor evil. He is awake, yet he dreams. But...maybe not forever.
Fayth, Final Fantasy X


Y.R.P. In position. It’s showtime, girls.
Rikku, Final Fantasy X-2

Snake...? Snake!? SNAAAAKE!!!
Rikku, Final Fantasy X-2

Rikku: "Think we need a password?"
Paine: "How about "kick-its-ass"?"

— Upon encountering a Guardian Beast, Final Fantasy X-2

You think waiting will get me to talk? Sorry, Yuna, My lips are sealed.
Paine, Final Fantasy X-2

I won't let myself be used anymore. Not by anyone.
Yuna to Lulu, Final Fantasy X-2

I don't like your plan. It sucks.
Yuna, Final Fantasy X-2

Do you know what it felt like to watch them die? Right before my eyes? It was the only thing we could do. It was the only choice we had. I gave in, I accepted, I believed. I allowed it to be true. I thought I'd be able to go through with it without ever doubting myself. But I... It hurts so much.
Yuna, Final Fantasy X-2

Spira grows brighter with each passing day. That light is our strength. I don't want to see it fade.
Yuna, Final Fantasy X-2

I guess everyone's like this. We cling to our secrets, our doubts, our memories...we're never able to put them aside. Even though they confuse us, there are some things we can only find in that confusion.
Yuna, Final Fantasy X-2

Everyone was so happy. "Great job, Yuna. You did it. You saved us all." There were too many smiles to count... and I know that I was smiling, too. But now... when I look back... the people who should be here aren't. The ones who should be smiling with me aren't here.
Yuna, Final Fantasy X-2

No. I don't want this any more. I don't want friends to die... or fade away. I don't want battles where we have to lose in order to win.
Yuna, Final Fantasy X-2

The amazing chocobo has brought back... absolutely nothing. The amazing chocobo didn't find any treasure.
―Game message, Final Fantasy X-2

I always try to cram myself into some kinda mold, you know? A blitzer, or a guardian, or a follower of Yevon... And now, a father. I always get so wound up about what I should be. But you know, in the end I'm just me. Anyway, I can't keep coming up with new Wakkas all the time, eh? So it looks like I'll just have to start doing things my way. That's the way I'll write our story.
Wakka, Final Fantasy X-2

This moment's enough. I don't need anything else. Just knowing how you feel is enough.
Lenne to Shuyin, Final Fantasy X-2

Who's on top now, Dullwings? It'll be a thousand years before you can take on the mighty Leblanc.
Leblanc, Final Fantasy X-2

So much has happened! And I'm sure it's only the beginning. Through the smiles, tears...through the anger, and the laughter that follows. I know that I will keep changing. This is my story. It will be a good one. It all began when I saw this sphere of you.

Hero. Summoner. Doormat.
Shinra describing Yuna, Final Fantasy X-2

Welcome to your doom, starring me!

Fickblix, Goblin in Jeuno, about the flowers he planted, Final Fantasy XI

Geebeh, Galkan youth, about the flowers Fickblix planted in Jeuno, Final Fantasy XI

I can never figger out why he's gotta be so buddy-buddy with all them people!
Muckvix, Goblin in Jeuno, about Fickblix, Final Fantasy XI

Remember one thing: you are an adventurer, not a hero. You have no duty to the majority—especially one that chooses to stay idle at a time like this. Go on this mission for your own gain. That is the Bastonkan way.

Agents masquerading as guides. A hideout at the back of a tavern. Not exactly earning high marks for originality, are we?

Hmm... I daresay I soiled my cuffs. If a dungeon is waiting for us at the end of the night, it had best have a change of wardrobe.
Balthier, Final Fantasy XII

I play the leading man; who else?

Balthier, Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings

Aye, enjoy the spectacle while you can. The worm will turn!
Ba'Gamnan, Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings

No! The dead will find no release in blood. Perhaps I am no true judge, but the future is built on more than what is passed. A man whose gaze bends ever back cannot hope to find his way forward. You would bind yourself to illusions, to the fallen. I will cut you free of those bonds!

Lightning, about Snow, Final Fantasy XIII

Our Focus doesn't matter. I don't take orders from fal'Cie. How I live is up to me.
Lightning, Final Fantasy XIII

I was born into a fal'Cie world, raised on a fal'Cie leash. It was the only life knew how to live. When it was taken from me, I was completely lost. Without a master to follow, my life had no purpose.
Lightning, Final Fantasy XIII

Sanctum logic. They conjured up the Purge to eliminate a threat. I mean–why carry the danger all the way to Pulse? Why not just stamp it out here? Execution masquerading as exile. That's all the Purge ever was.

It's too much, isn't it? Face it later.
Vanille to Hope, Final Fantasy XIII

This place was beautiful, and my Focus was to destroy it. I decided to do nothing and wait to become a Cie'th. But because I did nothing, others got dragged into this nightmare. And I was the one to blame.
Vanille, Final Fantasy XIII

Running away and leaving behind the people you care about? That isn't love. Though you might just want to keep them safe, shutting them out of your life only hurts them more. The point is, I have people I can count on. I'll make it through.

You don't believe in anything. You gave up on life before you were even born. Sat poisoning Cocoon from the inside, waiting for someone to come and destroy you. Sure, you think the end of the world is salvation. All you care about is death's release. So take it, and leave the rest of us alone. We don't think like that. When we think there's no hope left, we keep looking until we find some. Maybe Cocoon is past saving, but it's our home. And we'll protect it or die trying! We live to make the impossible possible. That is our Focus!
Lightning to Orphan, Final Fantasy XIII

Pulse fal'Cie and l'Cie are bad news. That's why Cocoon kicked them out. Live too close to the fal'Cie? One-way ticket to Pulse! That's the Purge in a nutshell.
Vanille, Final Fantasy XIII

All this dampness is damp.
Sazh Katzroy, Final Fantasy XIII

Find your own road to hell.
Lightning, Final Fantasy XIII

Since when have heroes ever needed plans?
Snow Villiers, Final Fantasy XIII

The hero always wins!
Snow Villiers when using Sovereign Fist, Final Fantasy XIII

Time we gave the people what they really want.
Sazh Katzroy, before the final battle, Final Fantasy XIII

I'm here of my own accord, not by fal'Cie. Seeing you fight brought it all back. Brought back that future I once strove for. I, too, will challenge my fate.
Cid Raines, Final Fantasy XIII


That's it. I've decided. Snow is always putting himself in danger trying to save others. So, I'm going save him. When I became a l'Cie, he did everything he could to help me. Now, it's my turn. I swear, I won't stop until I find him again.
Serah Farron, Final Fantasy XIII-2

It doesn't have to happen. Noel, we can change the future.
Serah Farron, Final Fantasy XIII-2

One more thing...Don't ever lay down and wait to die!
Noel Kreiss, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Humans aren't strong. They die easy.
Noel Kreiss, Final Fantasy XIII-2

I lived at the end of days. I was the very last child to be born. As I grew up, everyone I knew died, one by one, until eventually it was just me. All of their dreams fell on my shoulders. I was their last hope.
Noel Kreiss, Final Fantasy XIII-2

You know, I couldn't do what you two do. Staying apart and doing your own thing, even though you love each other. You never know when someone might disappear from your life. Take it from me, you have to make every moment count.
Noel Kreiss to Serah Farron, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Can you see me now, standing here in this place?
Noel Kreiss, in the ancient city of Paddra, Final Fantasy XIII-2

I know there are more people out there, somewhere. If we find them, Yeul won't have to feel so lonely anymore. She'll feel happy again.
Noel Kreiss, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Charging ahead into an early grave. He acts like he's everyone's boss, just marches ahead and never thinks how much danger he's putting himself in. Idiots like that, they're all the same. Their heads in the clouds, thinking self-sacrifice can somehow save everyone. But people die anyway.
Noel Kreiss on Snow Villiers, Final Fantasy XIII-2

You're the worst of them all. I hate your kind! You think you're everyone's protector-everyone's hero-but who do you save, really? Do you even realize how useless you are!? Do you realize what you do to the people you're supposed to protect!?
Noel Kreiss to Snow Villiers, Final Fantasy XIII-2

I used to think the only way to make a better future was to change something right away, in the here and now. But creating something for people to build on, that's not a bad idea. Right? Even if it can't be completed in one lifetime, it's still worth starting. If you believe that someone in the next generation will take up the same ideal, then the dream lives on.
Noel Kreiss, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Humanity is doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past. It's part of being human. But we also have the ability to build a new future.
Noel Kreiss, Final Fantasy XIII-2

That time was lost. Yet time continued onwards. Divine Etro. Go peacefully to your rest. I will stand guard over your legacy. This endless realm is awash with sadness. Life and death lose all meaning under the rolling waves of chaos. Valhalla. The currents of time do not touch its shores. In this world of lost moments, I begin my life anew.
Lightning, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Time flows without pause. In a world where I no longer exist, the future is about to change. Serah...The truth still survives, but only you remember it.
Lightning, Final Fantasy XIII-2

When reaching for the future, we sometimes fall into the past. As we gaze upon events that cannot be changed, our hearts grow bitter with regret. And you, my dear Serah, will you encounter your past here? How will you choose to deal with that pain?
Lightning, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Because you're the only one who can. You crossed the Void and made it to Valhalla. You can find Serah, and together you can change the future.
Lightning to Noel, Final Fantasy XIII-2

People always say the future will be better. They believe the hardships of the present fade with the passage of time. And so we hope, waiting for a future brighter than today.
Lightning, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Each reunion is like a twist of the knife. The joy is ephemeral; it leaves fear in its wake...A fear that all too soon the time will come when you must bid farewell again. Yet you cannot help but long for the next encounter. Humanity's great frailty...We prefer past happiness to future uncertainty.
Lightning, Final Fantasy XIII-2

When two people part and go their separate ways, their memories split as well. Some people wish they could go back and be be together like before. Others look forward to the day they can meet again.
Lightning, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Warrior goddess...Now we cross swords!
Caius Ballad, Final Fantasy XIII-2

I killed him. That is the law of the Guadrians. There can only be one.
Caius Ballad, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Time is our greatest obsession. Who has not dreamed of returning to the past, of changing the future? Imagine the power. To see how our choices affect our lives, and then return to undo them. Endless possibilities. Imagine the freedom to cross time and journey through the ages. The freedom to change the past, and bend history to your will. What would you do if you had that power? Could you eradicate the mistakes of history, and build a perfect future? Or would you be subject to fate, and be swept down the river of time... ...powerless to change your course?
Caius Ballad, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Well? Are you ready to kill me?
Caius Ballad, Final Fantasy XIII-2

I don't want to please her. I want to save her.
Caius Ballad, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Cast your shadow over all. Wings of night!
Caius Ballad summoning Chaos Bahamut, Final Fantasy XIII-2

I must thank you. In these final moments, I have met my finest opponent.
Caius Ballad to Lightning, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Child of miracles. Traveler of time, guided by Etro. Listen to me. Each time you fulfill a wish of your heart, someone else's dream is shattered. You conjure miracles, but when you do, the seeds of tragedy are sown in other lives. Are you prepared to bear that burden? That responsibility?
Caius Ballad to Serah Farron, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Here in Valhalla, the chaos is my ally. Now let us decide the true history.
Caius Ballad, Final Fantasy XIII-2

It's strange. I knew all along this day was coming. But, I'm still not say goodbye. I wish we could stay together.
Yeul, Final Fantasy XIII-2

If you change the future, you change the past. You can remold history as your heart desires.
Yeul, Final Fantasy XIII-2

He is tasked with protecting the seeress and remembering her visions. Now and forever, he will remember the entire timeline. Caius, he is beyond death.
Paddra Nsu-Yeul, Final Fantasy XIII-2

The power to step outside the timeline. The power to witness the future. These gifts come from Etro. Her servants are known by her blessings.
Yeul, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Servant of time. Daughter of chaos. Unto the world unseen, the untamed you guide.
Mog, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Time for some moogle magic. Kupo!
Mog, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Tick-tock, the moogle clock runs on clockwork, kupo. If I forget to wind it up, it'll stop dead and we'll be in untimely trouble!
Mog in Time's Shell Fragment, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Splendiferous! I knew you two could do it, kupo kupo!
Mog, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Here lie the innocent victims of chance, cast out and cast down. May their souls find the path that leads them home.
―Monument in Bresha Ruins, Final Fantasy XIII-2

My domain exists outside the march of time. It is unseen and unknown, beyond life and death. Until the day the bell of the goddess tolls, this realm welcomes not the living.
Arbiter of Time, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Looks like I needed the cavalry after all. Maybe going solo was a bad idea.
Snow Villiers, Final Fantasy XIII-2

It'll be okay. Heroes never die.
Snow Villiers, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Sometimes, when it looks like all hope is lost, people can turn against each other. They end up full of hate. But really, when they stop and think about it, they're making themselves sad for no reason.
Alyssa Zaidelle, Final Fantasy XIII-2

There was a time when I almost lost myself because I had so much hate in me. And then some friends showed me a way out.
Hope Estheim, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Heads...or Tails. Life or death. I'm stuck in this place where time stands still. All because of what happened that day...
Sazh Katzroy, Final Fantasy XIII-2

I don't know how or why, but I found myself gambling to win back the most important thing in my life. I'm a handsome man, but Lady Luck has never glanced my way. But you know, maybe this time, it'll be different. It has to be. Maybe this time, she'll show me some love.
Sazh Katzroy, Final Fantasy XIII-2

I might have no chance of saving the future. I might not even come back alive. Maybe I'm wasting my time. Maybe I'm grabbing straight for the short straw. But that doesn't faze me. Let's say I make the wrong choice. That just makes the odds better for someone else. And maybe that someone...maybe they can save the future.
Sazh Katzroy, Final Fantasy XIII-2

You are no longer alive. However, that does not mean you are dead. For example, take a look at the coin. In this brief moment before it lands on the floor, there are two possible outcomes: heads or tails. That is the situation you are in. There are two possibilities for your life: life or death.
―Owner of Serendipity, Final Fantasy XIII-2

People know me as the choco-mazing Chocolina! I'm the most chocoriffic time-traveling trader in the whole wide world!
Chocolina, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Choco-boco-lina! Welcome! Get your traveling products here at Chocolina's emporium! The beauty's all mine, but the products can be yours—but only if you show me the money! This might be a once in a lifetime choco-mazing opportunity, so don't miss out!

What a pretty little girl. I do like 'em pretty! But look at this boy, he's even prettier!
Ultros's first lines to Serah and Noel, Final Fantasy XIII-2

I've been waiting in this Coliseum for so very long now! I was starting to worry that you’d never download this part of the game and I'd be stuck in digital limbo!
Gilgamesh, Final Fantasy XIII-2

See these weapons I picked up in the rift? They let me predict the weather: bullet showers and rocket storms!
Gilgamesh shows off his new firearms, Final Fantasy XIII-2

Scream for me.
Jihl Nabaat upon performing Sadistic Surge, Final Fantasy XIII-2

People's hearts are pure chaos. Formless, and ever-changing, a mystery no one can solve. That is why humans are such contradictions. One moment they're at each other's throats; the next they're forming shaky alliances. Will this happen to you two, I wonder. I'll hold out my hand and smile while I give you my terms... Now die!
Jihl Nabaat to Serah and Noel, Final Fantasy XIII-2


I'm more powerful than I ever was. But it came with a price. I'm not even sure if I'm a human anymore.
Lightning, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

So she'll understand his pain? She thinks she's going to save his soul? Would you listen to this nonsense? God turns her into the savior and it all goes straight to her head!
Lumina, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

Five hundred years ago, I committed the ultimate sin. One more death on my conscience won't do anything to me.
Noel Kreiss, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

I've been fighting destiny for a long time now, and I'm getting good at it.
Lightning, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

The brightest lights cast the darkest shadows.
Lightning, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

One day, the light touched me. I knew what it was. It was God himself, speaking to me. He told me what I had to do. I was chosen, to rescue lost souls and guide them pass the end of this world and into the next. I became the savior.
Lightning, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

Tell me, Snow. Has ever a day passed...when you haven't thought about Serah? The girl you loved? My younger sister? How long has she been gone now? She brought us together, and made us allies and friends. I can't give her back to you. But I can save your soul, and free you from your long torment. It'll be my first act, as savior.
Lightning, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

They've been swallowed by the Chaos, and now they're trapped inside. I can feel it. All their sadness... All their grief... They're swirling around me. Every single cry feels like a dagger...right in my heart.
Vanille feels the pain of the dead, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

The gates are opened and Chaos has flooded through, consuming the world and everything in it Not even God can stop it. That's where you come in, Light. You're the last piece of the puzzle. You have to rescue as many as you can from this world and lead them to the new one.
Hope Estheim, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

The legend had told of her coming... Banisher of darkness, bringer of light, redeemer of souls. She'd come at the end of guide our souls to salvation.
Snow Villiers on Lightning, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

Only thirteen days to go.
Lightning, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

When I awoke from my dream of sleep, I was just in time to witness the end of the world.
Lightning, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

Lightning: "Snow. It's been a long time. You know what I am. And you know what I want."
Snow Villiers: "I can take a wild guess.. You wanna 'save' me?"

— Lightning meets Snow, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

In this dying world, nothing is more precious than time. Why do you waste it on me? Does my victory still sting? Do you seek vindication?
Caius Ballad, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

Very well. Do your best, hunter of souls. Cleave the evil from me, and save me—if you can. If you wish to have my must take it by force.
Caius Ballad, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

It is a new future, and there is no place for her in it. We must stay here. The Chaos is where we belong.
Caius Ballad on Paddra Nsu-Yeul, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

I am an empty shell. My soul is rotted away. I shall cast this body into the Chaos. I shall be the shepherd of all the souls...destined to wander the darkness, never to be reborn in the new world.
Caius Ballad, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

I made a promise. I told him that we'd meet again.
Yeul, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

So you won't save everyone, after all. Do you think you can live with that?
Lumina, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

I can't save someone who doesn't want to be saved.
Lightning, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

Lightning: "I've got to find her soul if I want to save her. And...the truth is, I just can't feel her anymore."
Hope Estheim: "It'll be all right, trust me. She can see you, and she's been watching over you. When you make the right choice, you'll find her again."

— Hope and Lightning discuss Serah, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

Even in this dying world, plenty of people still believe in God. They believe that they are special, and that God loves them unconditionally. They believe he is looking out for them. Gods exist all right. But they've got their own agenda. They sure didn't make this world and put people in it because they love us. They just wanted to create new tools.
Lightning upon conquering the Ultimate Lair, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

As long as you were with me, Light...I didn't have to fear anything. I'm not scared. Not even now. Because you're here.
Hope Estheim, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

It's the beginning of the end. Time has run out on this world, and there won't be any more tomorrows.
Lumina on the world's final day, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

The souls of the dead are bound to the memories of the living. Because we remember them, they can survive in the Chaos. We're custodians, and our job to keep the flame of memory burning.
Lumina, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

Stop playing hard to get, and get you butt over here! I know you're dying to get in on this.
Fang invites Lightning to battle a Chimera with her, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

I don't care what happens to me. It doesn't matter. I just want a chance to make up for what I did. So many people died because of me. I can hear them, even now. They're crying out, all the time. Their grief and sorrow...I feel it all.
Vanille, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

Lightning: "Nice entrance, hero."
Snow: "Only took five centuries."

— Snow arrives to Luxerion Cathedral on the final day, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

Yes, your souls are opaque to me, but that is precisely why they must be redone. What value can they have, if your souls are not known to God?
Bhunivelze, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

Bow thy head and open your heart to the benediction of God's light. Drink in the light and cleanse your soul. Surrender to the radiance...Divine love eternal!
Bhunivelze, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

I bring you salvation! This is the last soul I'll save. Hope! I set you free!

Yda: "The two of us wouldn't hurt a fly. We may get in the way and be a bit annoying, and yes, we have been known to bungle even the simplest of tasks...with occasionally disastrous consequences - but we certainly don't mean to. Can't fault us for that!"
Papalymo: "<sigh> Yda, do you happen to recall that talk we had about knowing when to be quiet? Well, that when is now."

Momodi: "Oh my! And do you go 'round handin' out such valuable blossoms to every lady whose acquaintance you make?"

Adelle, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Wait, do you remember anything at all!? C'mon, anything!? All those adventures... And how you ripped Cid and me off... You gotta remember that!
Luso to Adelle, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Illua: " are merely the chorus. Do not deceive yourselves into believing you are anything more."
Luso: "Funny, that's not what my story says. It's a pretty good read, too. Lots of supporting characters. You could say we all kind of wrote it together. So don't think I'm ready to toss it just because you like your story more!"

Clan Gully confronts Illua, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Sorry, but an agreement is an agreement. You wanted to be sure you never looked on this creature again, didn't you? If we slay you, then we will have fulfilled the conditions of the quest, yes?
Adelle to Luc Sardac, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Thuuu... Then again... Perhaps I am the monster you seek.
Frimelda the zombie, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Lotice: " Maa... Might I ask a question? I do not wish to startle... Ahh... Am I dead?"
Luso: "No, you're alive! I mean, you wouldn't be standing here talking to us if you weren't! It's just that you don't look so... alive, y'know? Not that you look dead, or anything! ... More... kind of... UN-dead?"

— On Frimelda's "condition", Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Since when have we been "friends" and how soon can we stop?
Cid to Adelle, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Well, great! That suits me just fine. I mean, I want to find my way home, sure... It's just, the more I see of this place, the more I want to see. I was starting to get a little confused, to be honest. But, if adventuring around Ivalice is my ticket home, I'm all set. I can just keep on doing what I've been doing! I'll enjoy myself until this book's all full, then see what happens.
Luso on learning how the Grimoire works, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Hey, um, Judge! I swear the oath! Let me in the clan!
Luso joins Clan Gully, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Luso: "Do I look like the type to keep a journal to you?"
Cid: "That you do not."

— Luso finds the Grimoire of the Rift in his keeping, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

It's policy. Why keep for tomorrow what I can spend today?
Adelle, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Luso: "Hey, Adelle... You know, I wasn't going to tell you this... but I found another pearl. It's twice as big."
Adelle: "Really!? Ewwww! That's a b-ball of mud! What's the big - Hey! It's on my hand! Eeeeew! Stinky!"

— Luso gets Adelle back, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

All I can say is, we didn't do it. Trusting Vaan or not is an entirely different matter.
Penelo, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Hmph, I'm afraid the only cure for my brand of idiocy is steel, my dear.
Cid to Illua, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Me, hungry for power? You miss the point. The world needs people with power... be they many or few.
Illua, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

That's right, Luso Clemens is the name! And fighting impossibly huge demonic hands is my game... *gulp*
Luso Clemens, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Lezaford: "Ahh, you're all right! I am relieved."
Adelle: "If you call battered, bruised, and scarred for life "all right", then, yes."

Well, you're a crystal bearer. I'm sure you'll think of something.

When nine and nine meet nine, the depths of reason shall stir. When the seal of creation is broken, a voice like thunder shall sound, and thou shalt know—we have arrived.
Ace, Final Fantasy Type-0

I'm busy punching people.
Eight, Final Fantasy Type-0

The future waits for no one. Do you think you can keep up?
Seven, Final Fantasy Type-0

Is it true that one of the guys in Class Zero actually fights with playing cards? Yeah, I bet you can really trump your opponents with weapons like that... Seriously, those Class Zero cadets are a weird bunch.
―Class First Cadet, Final Fantasy Type-0

It becomes hard to see clearly when your life starts flashing before your eyes, but death won't wait for you to make your next move. People who can't make split-second decisions are the first to go.
―Class Second Cadet, Final Fantasy Type-0

If people's actions fade away from our memories with time, then all we can do to prevent them from slipping away is to keep written records. But if the Crystal erases all our memories of the dead, what good is a list of someone's achievements when we can't remember who they were?
Ace, Final Fantasy Type-0

I'm not going to let myself die, even if it means I have to take someone else's life instead. I...don't want to be forgotten.
―Dominion Legionary, Final Fantasy Type-0

I can feel it in my pom-pom: we're on the verge of an epic battle, kupo! But don't sweat it, bro! We're the good guys—we're totally gonna win, kupo!
―Class Fifth Moogle, Final Fantasy Type-0

'Walk on, wandering souls, for your respite we pray. Let our humble song clear your...' ...Oh these lyrics? They're from a song Mother always used to sing to me. The words feel so soothing to me. Sometimes, when I'm feeling down, I just sing to myself. There's a sense of sadness in the lyrics, but it's tinged with hope—I like that.
Ace, Final Fantasy Type-0

I've been trying to come up with a good chocobo name. What about Chichiri? I think that would... ...That was weird. I started sad all of a sudden. I wonder why. It's not the first time this has happened, either. Every so often, I just get hit with this wave of some kind of intense longing.
Machina Kunagiri, Final Fantasy Type-0

There was never any competition for me back in Class Second, but it's hard not to lose confidence on missions with you guys. I'm constantly reminded of how much more work I have to do. If only I were stronger—like the l'Cie. I would be unstoppable with that kind of power...but would it really be worth sacrificing my humanity?
Machina Kunagiri, Final Fantasy Type-0

We can't choose the time we're born into, but we can still choose the eay we live our lives now. Sure, let's make the most of this world of ours, will we? Together we can paint a brighter future for all of Orience!
Rem Tokimiya, Final Fantasy Type-0

You'd better be paying close attention during our mission briefing, yo. That way, you can explain the orders to me later.
Nine, Final Fantasy Type-0

Unlike the empire's magitek armor, we Agito Cadets are not machines of murder. Do keep our honor in mind when we march so as not to let bloodlust get the better of you.
Queen, Final Fantasy Type-0

How much longer until I get to slice up some more of those imperial scumbags? I can't wait to get this party started.
Sice, Final Fantasy Type-0

We may lose our memories of the dead, but you always remember how it feels to take someone's life. It haunts you... If only the Crystal let us forget that pain.
―Class Tenth Cadet, Final Fantasy Type-0

Cid Aulstyne talks about having big plans for Orience, but he doesn't scare me. I'll shut him up with my own two hands if I have to. He stole my village, my parents, and my brother from me, but I refuse to let him take anything else. I'm going to stop him—no matter what it takes.
Machina Kunagiri, Final Fantasy Type-0

Mother brought all of us here because she believes in us. Her honor is on the line, so that means we can't mess up. Everyone needs a reason to keep going, and she's mine. I want to make her proud.
Eight, Final Fantasy Type-0

The past is gone for good, but the future's still ours for the taking. That's why we fight.
King, Final Fantasy Type-0

Since the dawn of eternity, four lights of hope have shone upon the world. Men flock to these lights, around which they build four peristylia. Each peristylium becomes their faith and society, the path upon which they are set.
Diva, Final Fantasy Type-0

I swear, this place feels so familiar... It's more than just seeing the same things. It's like I've experienced all of this before. Like I've stood in this spot at thus exact same moment. You know what I mean, don't you?
Cater, Final Fantasy Type-0


Surely you jest, fair lady! Who would this "Mog" fellow be? I can tell from the admiration in your voice that he must be notably witty and handsome, however!

Why create, when it will only be destroyed? Why cling to life, knowing that you have to die? None of it will have meant anything once you do...

Chaos, Dissidia Final Fantasy

I was having a long dream, in the midst of was ridiculous. Cosmos and I were governing the world together. Laughable, is it not? In that world, I was a god that suppressed disorder. But strangely, the images are still vivid in my eyes...all the people smiling...the warmth of the days I spent with Cosmos...for one who has lost all memory, why did the dream have to be so cruel?

Squall: "(Didn't sound like a joke to me.)"

— Discussing the crystals, Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy

Your divine power exists to protect this world. If you wasted it on your servants and allowed the world to fall, what purpose would that serve? We are warriors - the chosen few who were summoned to this land to secure victory for the goddess of harmony. Cosmos, there will come a future in which that victory shall be won. And so I ask you: believe in that future. Stand by your heroes as they look to the next battle. Though I once fought in the name of light, that honor may now be lost to me. However...the light I hold within my breast, never once has it flickered or faded. This I swear: I shall do my utmost to protect you until the very end.
