Gilgamesh: Enough expository banter!
This talk page is used for discussing improvements to the page "Jecht". It is not the place for general discussion or sharing stories about the topic of this article.

Should we remove all those citations? Not only does it make the page look very messy, it is also useless here. --Auron Kaizer 20:31, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

Yes. Go ahead and remove anything and everything that makes it look like a Wikipedia article. Crazyswordsman 00:16, 25 November 2006 (UTC)
It looks awesome now! We should do this to all the pages! --Auron Kaizer 17:01, 25 November 2006 (UTC)
The thing is, those references were actually interesting quotes from the game involving Jecht. I think they should be put back.

Quotes Edit

I'm starting to think that some of the quotes made using the Quote template are out of place, like the one in the middle of the article by Tidus. Wouldn't it be better with an actual "quotes" section in the article? The quotes can be by, or about, the character (so Tidus' "I hate you" would still fit here). --Hecko X 17:06, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

Jecht=Sol Badguy?Edit

Several people have begun to notice that Jecht's fighting style is quite awfully similar to Sol Badguy's. I mean, not in fighting type, but the way they attack; i.e., Punches and kicks with occasional uses of the sword. Same goes for his HP attacks resembling some of Sol's super attacks. Anyone else around here notice the semblance? Kaihedgie 11:14, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

sword? Edit

what is the name of jecht's sword? 17:52, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

The name is never mentioned, maybe Dissidia will get it a name.
I think there are in fact two alussions to Jecht using a sword. Right at the beginning of the game Auron gives Tidus a sword saying it is "a gift from Jecht". If we think about it Jecht arrived to Spira with no fighting experience (monsters are rare in Zanarkand, and Jecht was a blitzball star, not a wrestler). So it makes sense for him to get a weapon. That's why I say that it should be mentioned as an alussion to him using a sword.
Except it isn't, you're reading far too much into the line. "its a gift from Jecht" in no way implies Jecht used a sword himself. Furthermore you're making a big deal out of this quote being evidence Jecht used a weapon in Spira. We already know he did because of the other references to him using a sword, a sword which is completely different from the one Auron gives Tidus. This isn't like Jecht passing his own sword on to Tidus, this is Auron giving Tidus a sword and saying its from Jecht, this in no way implies Jecht himself used the sword. You're using tortured logic here which simply does not work.

Are we arguing if Jecht used swords? Two things that give heavy implications, --the sword was a gift from Jecht. I mean, if you wield a gun, or a blitzball, you're hardly going to give your son a sword as a gift.
The second heavy implication is Braska's Final Aeon. 22:15, July 26, 2010 (UTC)
I know I'm late to the argument, but there is a scar on the Shoopuf where Jecht injured it. He could have borrowed Auron's sword, but isn't the simplest explanation the best? It always bugged me that they never showed scenes of Braska's party in combat, so the only times we see Jecht holding a sword are in Dissidia and concept art, as well as Braska's Final Aeon. It's also kind of funny that nowhere on this wiki page does it say anything about Jecht's sword in the concept art being identical to his sword as an Aeon. Yrusama 10:40, June 15, 2012 (UTC)

Is it worth noting that Jecht's sword resembles an anchor?

Sent? Edit

Was Jecht ever Sent to the Farplane? I ask because once the Final Aeon is beaten and Jecht is shown fatally injured, Yuna makes a point of saying "Sir Jecht, I should...", but Jecht doesn't give her the chance and orders her to call her Aeons. So if Yuna never got a chance to send him, what happened to Jecht? For that matter, were any of the past incarnations of Sin Sent? Drake Clawfang 08:29, November 10, 2009 (UTC)

Jecht was sent to the Farplane, remember that scene at the very end of FFX where Tidus jumps into the Farplane and gives his daddy a high-five there? And in FFX-2, Jecht, Auron, and Braska all appear in the Farplane to give your party advice about defeating Shuyin. So to answer your question, Drake, perhaps Jecht made his way to the Farplane after his defeat by himself? Who knows, the game never makes it clear (or maybe we should assume it ourselves). I'm not sure if all of the past incarnations of Sin were sent, at least not the ones that you meet as Fayth when you obtain their Aeon. Seymour's mother, for example. She was the Sin when Braska went on his pilgrimage. Even after that Sin's defeat, she still showed up as a Fayth for Anima at Baaj Temple. So I'm guessing that not all (or maybe all) of the past incarnations of Sin did not make it to the Farplane, but went to their Fayth statues if they still existed in Spira. This is just a theory.

what makes you think seymour's mother was sin? Oni Dark Link 16:19, November 10, 2009 (UTC)

Violetmage looks at Anima page I guess you're right! All this time I thought that Seymour's Mummy had become the next Sin, but then that would have meant that Seymour would have died. Violetmage♥


didnt miks run swsy and hide in the via infinito? all though wether the unsents there are real or not is debatable because yunalesca was there and we all know she was erased from spira Oni Dark Link 16:19, November 11, 2009 (UTC)

Why is Jecht a 'major antagonist'? Edit

I'm just wondering why the article says such a preposterous thing, calling Jecht an antagonist. What with sacrificing his soul for Auron, helping Tidus in his journey while simultaneously being Sin...pretty darn noble and selfless if you ask me. --Haveanicedays 05:36, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

"Antagonist" does not mean the same thing as "villain". Despite Jecht's true nature, for a good portion of the story, he is seen in an antagonistic light, to Tidus he is the hated father, and to Yuna he is Sin, the thing she is journeying to defeat, although both are simplifying Jecht's story for sure. Whether or not "major" is needed is a matter of opinion though.--Otherarrow 05:49, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
Good point. Maybe, then, the term 'contagonist' would be better placed? It means that they still oppose the main character, but without the intention of defeating them, only for 'their own good.' Sin would probably be the major antagonist of the game, as Seymour was an antagonist but wasn't the main one, and Yu Yevon created Sin's hyperdestructive nature by accident. --Haveanicedays 05:59, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

Age Edit

Where does his age come from? Drake Clawfang (talk) 02:32, June 29, 2013 (UTC)

I was feeling a little dubious about that myself, to bring up an old topic. If Jecht's age is listed as 30 and Tidus's is 17, then either something is amiss or Jecht is just THAT hardcore  Primarch Dysley FFXIII - Sprite-Dysley 17:54, December 25, 2014 (UTC)

I think it means Jecht was 30 ten years ago when he disappeared when Tidus was 7. After becoming a fayth can he said to have aged, I don't know.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 18:00, December 25, 2014 (UTC)
