Voice Actors[]

"Oh, and I refuse to play Fran. Her voice actor is TERRRRRIBLE. And she's a giant bunny. In a skimpy outfit. That's really disturbing." I can relate to that. Although her Limit whatchamacallit is pretty badass, this guy (the author of the Neglected Mario Characters sprite comic) pretty much sums it up. Although I do play Fran because I have the itch to keep everyone balanced. And she's pretty damn powerful in MY party.

Actually, I think Fran's english voice is nice and kinda sexy. In fact ALL of the voice acting in XII is great, head and shoulders above X. --

I agree with SmegHead. I like how the actors/actresses are actually better than what I thought. True Larsa/Balthier/Fran sound British, but for once, a pretty female main lead doesn't sound sad like Yuna did in X. Overall, I love Fran the best out of all the females in XII.

The viera kinda sound equal parts British (Oxford), Jamaican, and Russian. o.O The one who melted mateus 02:57, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
They're supposed to sound British, that's the point. British accents suit Ivalice better than American ones. I can't imagine Balthier with an American accent. And Fran rocks, as do all Viera. Jote is the only one with a good voice though. Diablocon 12:35, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
The voice acting in XII is good, although I don't agree that the VOs in X were crap, since I liked them, the script occasionally grated, but 'twas a good performance, esoecially from Matt McKenzie. My main problem with the Viera is that, as opposed to it burning, they seem to enjoy the mist a 'little' too much ;) StijnX 12:41, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
I mean other than Fran and Larsa, the VOs in FFXII are far, far, far superior to the FFX ones (especially Tidus and Yuna). One of the VOs in FFXII impressed me so much I thought Patrick Stewart was doing it. --Crazyswordsman 16:20, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
Although to be fair, Auron's VA WAS very, very good, and Wakka's voice is done by one of my personal favorite people in the world. --Crazyswordsman 16:22, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
Don't get me wrong, I liked the voice acting in FFX - Auron's (Matt Mackenzie) is great and John Dimaggio is obviously one of the best voice actors the world has seen. Tara Strong (Rikku) was also good, but it seemed like they spent much more time perfecting it for XII, and by not having almost EVERY incidental conversation and character voiced made the scenes where they did speak much more enjoyable. Apart from the playable characters there were less than 10 characters who were voiced, rather than the giant cast of X. BTW - I hope the guy who did Balthier's voice goes on to have a long career in voice acting. I hope everyone had (or is having) a great Easter, if you celebrate it or simply have a vacation. --SmegHead 08:15, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
I agree with that COMPLETELY. I think the main difference here with the voice acting goes all the way back to the game's origins. This game was done by the teams that brought you FF Tactics and FFVI, and they seem to have a better understanding of how people talk. I credit much better directing/scenary in this game which FFX lacked, and the directing and scenary is directly related to voice acting. If the Chrono series had voice acting, I promise you Kato would make sure it was top-notch. Hell, Kato would probably get Billy West, a god among mortals, to do it. --Crazyswordsman 15:36, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
Whatever do you mean ? The voice... acting... in .... X... was.... wonderful!
j/k The problem with X's voice is the insistence by SE that the actors match the lips of characters speaking japanese. Impossibible, as an hypello would say ;)
PS: On other news, just where is Balthier's hand in that artwork picture I loaded ? Renmiri 16:12, 19 May 2007 (UTC)

Peace with the Wood[]

Can it be assumed that the wood forgave Fran as she can use the Woods healing abilities (Ward of the Wood) to heal her allies in FFXII: Revenant Wings? - Silver Praetor

I didn't play Revenant Wings, but I think the name is purely put just because she is viera. If Fran wasn't viera, it could be called e.g.: Healing Wind.
