I've read on Wikipedia that Zanarkand was inspired by the real-world Samarkand. It is true?
I can't say for sure. For me, Tidus' damage is always 99999, no less. Maybe for this I'll have to replay the game...
What? I have never heard of this! I'll have to play to see if this is true.
I noticed that there are three links to Yunalesca (one same article). I was puzzled, and I removed them. Then, the next edit says "There are three Yunalesca battles". No doubt, there are three Yunalesca battles, but the Yunalesca page itself talks about all those three battles ! Seriously, talk about redundancy......
I think the issue at hand is if all three Yunalesca fights should be treated as separate bosses, or different phases/forms of the same bosses. If we treat them as different bosses, then we should have three separate pages. If we treat them as the same boss, we need only one page and one link. Drake Clawfang 05:53, October 8, 2009 (UTC)
- Point is, everyone whom I know treats Yunalesca as one enemy with three phases. It's NEVER Yunalesca 1, Yunalesca 2 and Yunalesca 3 (and I bet most people would do the same). TNÉ En avant Bravo ! 06:03, October 8, 2009 (UTC)
- All bosses with the same name get one page. Exception only to the final boss. And Ultimecia also gets an exception, although that's fair enough because it wouldn't seem to make much sense to have the first and third phase share a page, and the second and fourth having their own page.

- See ? That's why there shouldn't be three Yunalesca links on the Zanarkand page. That's just plain redundant, as I said earlier. TNÉ En avant Bravo ! 02:13, October 9, 2009 (UTC)
Wait, what? Edit
Dream Zanarkand is actually a physical location???
- That seems to be the case; I always saw Dream Zanarkand, and all of its inhabitants, as a de facto Aeon rather than actually only existing in a dream... from within Sin, Yu Yevon was summoning Dream Zanarkand via the Fayth on Gagazet. Both Jecht and Tidus seem to be real physical people for all intents and purposes - Tidus only fades when Yu Yevon is killed, and the summoning is stopped - so I think it's fair to say that "Dream" Zanarkand is a physical summoned replica of the original, rather than existing in any sort of dream state... consider also that Auron was able to "ride" Sin across the sea to Jecht's Zanarkand.--BADavid 19:12, February 8, 2010 (UTC)
Dream Zanarkand Edit
Okay, so Dream Zanarkand is actually a physical place (far out at sea) summoned by Yu Yevon. Now, I know that when the real Zanarkand was on the butt end of a butt kicking at the hands of Bevelle's machina, Yevon chumped out and turned his people into Fayth (not sure if they did so willingly, or if he forced them, doesn't really matter for my question). What I am wondering is, and perhaps FFX-2 answers this, but were the memories of the people themselves preserved? That is to say, 1,000 years ago, was there an 'Original Tidus' that the Tidus from Dream Zanarkand is based off of? Otherwise, it suggests that all of the inhabitants of Dream Zanarkand never ACTUALLY lived in Zanarkand, directly or indirectly. I mean within Dream Zanarkand, I guess people are born, age, and die normally (as evidenced by Tidus growing up) and his mom eventually dying. But I wonder if they are based on the memory of actual citizens, or if they are just the result of 1,000 years of 'normal' life and death.
- It is never confirmed, but in FFX-2 Maechen seems to suggest that Tidus may be "based on" Shuyin. The fayth who summon Dream Zanarkand base the city of their memory of the city, so it would make sense that the people they dream of are also people they remember.Keltainentoukokuu 04:31, March 12, 2012 (UTC)
Yes. I remember in FF X-2 when Maechen was talking to Yuna about this. Shuyin was a blitzball player, as was Tidus in Dream Zanarkand. But what about Lenne?Yunie X 23:39, June 5, 2012 (UTC)Yuna467
Separate Dream Zanarkand? Edit
Can I separate Dream Zanarkand from this article to its own one? They're not the same place, but is Dream Zanarkand an official name or something fans have just taken to calling it?Keltainentoukokuu 02:48, May 28, 2012 (UTC)
- Don't recall if it's an official name or not, but yes it should be split, for sure. Doreiku Kuroofangu 02:51, May 28, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, it can get a little confusing at times.Yunie X 23:36, June 5, 2012 (UTC)Yuna467
