Series appearances[edit | edit source]
The Abes set was an in-game reward for the attenders of Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival 2017 in Frankfurt. Attenders can choose between the High Summoner set or the Abes set.
Tidus appears as a legendary (5-stars) Triple Triad card.
Tidus appeared in the original free-to-play version. He was a water-elemental summon and a character costume for players to obtain.
Tidus could only be obtained as a summon through participating in the pre-registration campaign for the game's relaunch as Final Fantasy Legends II or could be obtained by players that originally played the game under the Final Fantasy Legends: Toki no Suisho title. His signet artwork reused his promotional artwork from Final Fantasy X.
Tidus's special attack was Spring of Speed, which increased the speed of all party members for five turns and hastens their next turn. Summoning Tidus required two summon gauges. In addition, Tidus taught the Spiral Cut ability, which appeared as one of his Swordplay Overdrives and even shared the same animation. The Tidus signet was an SS+ rank summon and had a summon cost of 16 to equip to a character.
Tidus allowed the wielder to use the following abilities:
- Spiral Cut I
- Spiral Cut II
- Spiral Cut III
- Spiral Cut IV
Similar to other series cameo characters, the Tidus summon and costume were removed from the premium release of Final Fantasy Dimensions II.
Dissidia Final Fantasy (2008)[edit | edit source]
Though seen as cheerful and energetic by his companions, Tidus's weak point is Jecht, a warrior of Chaos, to the point the very mention of his name angers him. Though he confuses his friends in doing so, Tidus claims to hate Jecht and feels no sympathy for him in spite of their relationship, but when Tidus is given the chance to battle his father he hesitates and questions his motivations. Jecht, likewise, defies orders from the Emperor about Tidus, and father and son meet to do battle on their own terms.
Tidus's alternate outfit is a slight remodel, removing most of the tears and frays from his uniform along with removing the high collar from his shirt and restoring the mesh-basket armguard, based on his Final Fantasy X appearance.
Tidus returns summoned for the first time to the war as a Warrior of Chaos. Bearing no memories of his home except for his hatred for Jecht, Tidus wishes to find and defeat him. Yuna tries to make him remember her and that he and his father resolved their differences, but the Emperor attacks her. Tidus intercepts the attack to protect Yuna, and while Yuna fights the Emperor, Jecht, a warrior of Cosmos in this cycle, saves Tidus's life by transferring his power to him, making Tidus into a Warrior of Cosmos and leaving Jecht an empty shell to eventually become a Warrior of Chaos.
Tidus's alternate outfit is redesigned to fully resemble his original Final Fantasy X appearance, while his third outfit leaves him shirtless as in Yoshitaka Amano's concept art of him.
Tidus is a playable character and a representative of Final Fantasy X. He is classed as a Speed-type character.

- Who's Who
- CV: James Arnold Taylor / Masakazu Morita
- Age in Grymoire: 17
- Notes: Super swimmer / Breathes underwater?! / Believes in doing the right thing / Always upbeat / Blitzball
- Tidus lives in Besaid, and as you might have guessed, he's the best blitzball player around. Sadly, Besaid doesn't seem to have one of those impressive spherical stadiums.
- Athletic Abilities Off the Chart
- Tidus was born to swim and play sports, and he uses his boundless stamina and agility to deal with rogue Mirages and other troubles in the waters off Besaid.
- He's also gotten pretty handy with a sword. The fact that he almost measures up to the League of S's more seasoned fighters like Squall, Cloud, and Lightning should tell you a lot about what he's physically capable of.
- Tidus and Shantotto
- Shantotto calls Tidus the "jock with the gills of a flounder," so it may seem as if she doesn't think much of him. On the contrary, they often work together to help the people of Besaid, and she values his talents quite highly. So don't let the unidirectional harsh wording fool you; they're actually good friends who share a healthy dose of mutual respect.
- Just a Really Nice Guy
- Nothing can stop Tidus once he sets his mind on something. If you ask him for help, this brave and good-natured youth will never let you down.
- When Yuna was kidnapped, Tidus chased her kidnapper all the way up the Crystal Tower. Some might call that idiotic, especially since he'd barely had any battle training. But he was thinking with his heart, and that's nothing to sniff at.
- Since the battle with Bismarck, Tidus and Yuna seem much closer. Perhaps their real journey is just about to begin.

Quotes[edit | edit source]
The following is a list of quotes uttered by Tidus when talking to him.
- Port Besaid
I wonder if Yuna's around.
Can't blame a guy for wanting to keep Yuna out of harm's way.
You know what? Today is the perfect day to play some blitzball!
If any more Cogna show up, I'll kick the stuffing out of 'em.
Hey! Hi, you two!
What's the latest?
Dr. Shantotto's up to the usual.

Guest appearances[edit | edit source]
A younger version of Tidus appears in Kingdom Hearts, as childhood friends with Selphie Tilmitt of Final Fantasy VIII, Wakka and the three main protagonists of the series, Sora, Riku and Kairi. He is an energetic boy confident in his athletic ability who likes to spar using a wooden training sword known as a bokken where he employs a variation of his original battle stance. Once Sora, Riku and Kairi are swept off the island, Tidus, Selphie and Wakka are left behind.
In Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Tidus appears in the memory version of Destiny Islands along with Selphie and Wakka. In Kingdom Hearts II, he does not appear within the storyline, but is mentioned by Selphie who says he is too busy with his ball game (referring to blitzball) to accompany her to Destiny Islands. Another data version of Tidus appears in the Japanese mobile game Kingdom Hearts coded and its DS remake Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, where his appearance is identical to the first Kingdom Hearts.
Tidus's Kingdom Hearts design features a scar on his cheek that was not present in Final Fantasy X. Its origins remain unknown.
