NameEdit

I had assumed "Jihad" was the Advance name...nope. So I have to ask where "Jihad" comes from. Doreiku Kuroofangu 16:28, May 1, 2010 (UTC)

Jihad is the Japanese name. It's apparently used in some fan translations, but nothing official. ScatheMote 16:40, May 1, 2010 (UTC)

Sharia law? In my Final Fantasy? --Shockstorm (talk) 06:11, January 2, 2013 (UTC)

Blame Japan and their fascination with the concepts behind foreign religions. Spdes Slick 19:59, August 29, 2014 (UTC)

This page reads like like perhaps it was written by two different authors. "Jihad" literally means "struggle," and its meaning varies on context - it can be an internal struggle to better oneself, it an be a struggle to protect ones homeland, it can refer to the internecine wars between the Sunnah and the proto-Shi'a beginning with the Battle of Karbala in 680 CE, or in modern language it can refer to terrorists & militia in the various Middle Eastern conflicts today. In modern religious thought, "jihad" still refers to the internal struggle to better oneself, although the term is, for obvious reasons, rapidly falling out of favor in Western countries due to its more violent expressions. Although I recognize that this FFwiki isn't a Middle Eastern history class, I would definitely urge that care be taken in defining the term. Auronrenouille (talk) 00:36, January 20, 2016 (UTC)

Crusader = Warring Triad? Edit

I'm a little surprised this wasn't already listed on either page, but... isn't Crusader/Jihad the Warring Triad? There's at least a heavy similarity. The Triad is "Demon, Fiend, and Goddess;" the Crusader is "a holy war between demon, devil, and goddess." Fiend and devil are often interchangeable, and there's some similarity between the summon sprites and the final battle sprites. Surely this is at least a notable coincidence, if not an outright connection? --Hoogathy (talk) 03:37, September 29, 2014 (UTC)
