A SeeD cadet training to be a mercenary at Balamb Garden. He was a lone wolf, who shunned away others, until his encounter with Rinoa helped him gradually open up and ultimately embark on a journey to defeat the evil sorceress.


Squall is a playable character in Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia who can be recruited during the Lost Chapter A Lion's Heart.



Squall wears a black leather bomber jacket over a white deep v-neck t-shirt that parts down the middle of his chest, black pants, and white fur trimming along the collar and top of his pants. He wears a Griever pendant and has a Griever belt buckle. A sash partially covers his right leg.

His alternate costume is the military-style SeeD uniform (Dance) he wore in Final Fantasy VIII during his graduation ceremony. It consists of a black jacket with gold trim fastened by a belt, black pants and knee-high black boots. The jacket's cuffs are red with silver shoulders connected by a chain across the chest.


Squall's personality remains the same in his original incarnation: introverted lone-wolf type. When Seifer betrays Raijin and Fujin to become Ultimecia's guardian, Squall suggests them to join the team. When the party encounters Rinoa, Squall shows joy and expresses that he was concerned about her after arriving to the Torsions World.


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Shortly after entering the new world, Squall was recruited by Edgar to investigate for the Returners. The party encounters him while traveling through a series of caverns to investigate a local Torsion. Though he is aware of what they are doing, he brushes off their concerns and continues on his own.

The party, concerned for his safety, follows. Squall argues with them, calling them amateurs and warning them to leave as the caves are dangerous. Cloud and Rem protest that they are soldiers like him and that they are fighting because they want to protect their friends and homeworlds. Squall remains skeptical and points out that they're all risking their lives based solely on Mog's claims, but refuses to answer questions about his client beyond the job he hired Squall for. Cloud nods and suggests everyone continue on. Squall finally hesitates, as the monsters beyond are too dangerous, and agrees to assist them while they're there.

He is unsettled by Y'shtola, who teases him by finishing his sentences and seems to have insight into his private fear of losing others, which reminds him of Rinoa. Later, Hope stops him to talk about Mog and whether sealing the Torsions will really protect the world. Squall doesn't have the answers Hope is looking for, but admits he's just trying to survive long enough to see his friends again.

Because his recruitment event was initially optional, Squall does not appear in the main story until Chapter 8, where several flashback scenes show him interacting with the others in earlier chapters. Seifer is aggravated when Squall arrives after a fight in Imber Manor, offended that Squall hadn't bothered to make his presence known back in the Lost Kingdom.

Spoilers end here.


Squall has a wealth of multi-hit and AoE attacks that can break single foes or groups quicker than many others. For this reason alone, many players deploy him in situations where Item farming may be needed. When fully realized, he has the potential of becoming one of the more effective tank-killers in the entire party.

  • Squall seldom speaks aloud, preferring to mull over what he has heard via internal monologues before he responds to such. This trait is carried over from his original appearance.
  • Squall's alternate skin is one of the few that shows him with a different weapon on its artwork (Revolver is replaced with the Cutting Trigger). This is likely a nod to most standard playthroughs of Final Fantasy VIII involving most players having the Cutting Trigger as their forged weapon for Squall during the time of him wearing his SeeD uniform to the inauguration party.
  • The relative strengths of Squall’s weapons in Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia are out-of-sequence with Final Fantasy VIII; the Cutting Trigger is the third revision of his gunblade, but occupies the 35 CP slot, where the Shear Trigger is the second revision and occupies the 70 CP slot. The 15 CP Twin Lance is actually the fifth model.
