Next show? How can there be a next show when the first show made the next show a no-show?Tobli responding to Rikku
Tobli is a highly-excitable stage producer in Final Fantasy X-2. He speaks incredibly fast and adds "Yup-Yup" to the end of his sentences. He thinks highly of Yuna, although not for her defeat of Sin, but rather, for her ability to draw a crowd.
The Gullwings meet Tobli in Chapter 1 on Kilika Island if he has not been encountered at the Moonflow. The Gullwings' first mission concerning Tobli is at the Moonflow, where he is awaiting the arrival of one of his Hypello assistants. Yuna and her company offer to escort him and the supplies for the show and can help with the production from locating the three musicians in the Macalania Woods, to selling the tickets. Later on, they can also perform if the show turns out to be a success.
When the Gullwings put on a concert in the Thunder Plains to lift the spirits of the people of Spira, they ask Tobli to produce it. Tobli is on the run from his Al Bhed shareholders, and leads the girls on a chase through the Moonflow, determined to avoid paying his bills. He hijacks an Al Bhed machina hover, crashing into a billboard.
Three months later, Tobli partners up with Barkeep, but have a hard time finding a suitable performer after their first success with Yuna.
