Themes[edit | edit source]
There are several distinguishable themes present in Final Fantasy X series. One of them is of a young woman thrusting herself into a savior-type role where she keeps on saving the world with each story despite her reluctance and wish to live her own, peaceful life. Another theme prominent in the series is "connections" where everything that is present in each story is tied together with Farplane being its central point due to its role of an afterlife of sorts where the living can see the dead. "Bonds with other people" would classify as a part of the "connections" theme where bonds between different people are explored, most prominently shown with Paine.
