  5. In the original they annoyed me a bit, but TAY's expansions on them win them my vote. Also, after finally playing XII, Gabranth was a huge wuss who never said or did anything remotely cool. Dissidia made me expect a lot more. :( Dazuro 02:45, August 5, 2011 (UTC)
  6. Though I'm leaning towards the other side in terms of both game and characterization, I'm going with P(al/or)om due to the fact that they (kinda) work better together. Twincast? - +DeadlySlashSword+ 03:20, August 5, 2011 (UTC)

  12. Twincast rocks and to top it off, these guys don't need to do a Vader impersonation to appeal to the public. MirrorshardSceada 20:26, August 6, 2011 (UTC)
  13. Damn Drake... Your fights always make me have to think hard. This vote is based off last weeks. I've played FFIV a lot more than XII. And the fact I'm playing The After Years has nothing to do with this vote.  TheBlueDragoon Dissicon ff10 Yun1.png01:15, August 7, 2011 (UTC)

  12. Palom is an annoying brat and even though Porom is a good deal more mature she's also still a little irritating. Gabranth however has a badass weapon that can turn into two blades and Basch is the strongest character (arguably) in FFXII so my vote goes for the Ronsenburg twins. --Marael 03:05, August 8, 2011 (UTC)
  13. Seriously! Bash and Gabranth are unbeatable!--Hotdragon 295 19:13, August 11, 2011 (UTC)

Grr... I can't decide on this one. I like both sets of twins. King of Noobs 02:14, August 5, 2011 (UTC)

I only have a few information about the twins from FFXII, but I'm sure, both of their designs are...well...they have such odd faces,and also,the helmet and boots of Gabranth...gosh...

But I do know Palom and Porom,and yes,they were a kind of comic relief characters,yet I always loved them somehow.Most of the times,they were in my party (Although,I found them useless,especially the white mage).Ok,wote for the kids!:-)--Lonely Wild Rose.jpg Rose 21:00, August 5, 2011 (UTC)

Ohhh, and by the way...could someone explain me, how the girl became Light pink from dark brown? I guess that redesign is a bit too drastic... :-D --Lonely Wild Rose.jpg Rose 21:04, August 5, 2011 (UTC)

Votes for Celes

  1. This will be another example of IX beating VI, though it is Garnet a IX character that I enjoy too. >_>  NeoZEROX Dissicon ff6 Ter4.png 02:22, July 29, 2011 (UTC)

  5. Celes is more versatile than the Princess. SidVI 08:11, July 29, 2011 (UTC)
  6. there is undeniable proof that Celes's ass is softer than Garnet's. --Xepscern 14:24, July 29, 2011 (UTC)\
  7. Meh. --ShirubaKurono Dissicon ff13 Lig3.png 00:49, August 1, 2011 (UTC)
  8. Very hard choice. Celes, on the grounds that I've played FFVI a lot more than IX. In terms of character, they're both my epic, but I've always known Celes and loved her. Plus blode hair = <3  TheBlueDragoon Dissicon ff10 Yun1.png04:26, August 1, 2011 (UTC)

  3. As Zidane would say, Easy-peasy. I never really liked Celes, she wanted to steal Terra's position as main protagonist. That's unforgivable. Garnet on the other hand is my favorite female character, so no contest for me here. --RazielZero 00:23, July 29, 2011 (UTC)
  4. Garnet is my favourite lady of Final Fantasy. 02:29, July 29, 2011 (UTC)

  10. Garnet's the best of the two, but two leading females beat her. Yuna and Rinoa. I expect bashing from this :) MystRay 00:43, August 1, 2011 (UTC)

  14. I really like Garnet, she's probably my second favourite FF9 character. And, she's a summoner, so... UltimateAnnihilation 15:19, August 3, 2011 (UTC)

The Viewer's Box

Ok, Although FFVI is my favourite FF game, Celes has never been a real favourite of mine,When I had to have her in my party,it was a struggle to fight with her...That mystic knight cliché...the rune ability,well,not the strongest one!But even if she has a "DIFFERENT" (XD) fighting style,visit the opera,and listen ARIA DI MEZZO! Doesn't this General have a beautiful voice? :-$ --Lonely Wild Rose.jpg Rose 08:00, July 29, 2011 (UTC)

Xepscern: You need to present the evidence, otherwise it's completely worthless.
SquallRocks: A few of us discussed your vote on IRC, and came to the agreement that you've insulted Garnet -- Sorceror Nobody Flan.PNG 22:03, July 31, 2011 (UTC)

I don't think comparing a dog-rocket-launcher-weilding-person to a summoner is an insult, I think it's a compliment. xD SquallRocks FFXIII - Sprite-MadLightning.png05:57, August 1, 2011 (UTC)
She is nowhere anything like Rinoa other than the color of hair :D Though I don't have any problems with Rinoa, she is nice. --RazielZero 11:59, August 1, 2011 (UTC)
Well, uh, I don't know about that. On the basis you have named alone, Garnet likes animals while Rinoa fires them like a cannonball in what can only be described at best as a questionable animal rights act. Expanding the terms a bit further, Garnet is strong-willed and independent whereas Rinoa is strong-willed and quite clingy. Garnet is shown to be competent at making plans, it just happens that her enemies far outstrip her in terms of strength. Rinoa, on the other hand, makes a number of plans, each of which is more staggeringly incompetent than the last. Kidnapping the president by switching his train car with an "exact duplicate"? Odine bangle? Aside from the slight physical resemblance, I really cannot see anything that these two have in common. Jimcloud 18:27, August 1, 2011 (UTC)
Sigh, well I really can't come up with anything to counter that, since what you said is true. But, my first impression with Garnet was the resemblence of Rinoa, with the looks and speech. SquallRocks FFXIII - Sprite-MadLightning.png13:40, August 2, 2011 (UTC)
That I will grant you. They both come from a relatively privileged upbringing, after all. And I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings, I didn't mean it that way at all ^^ Jimcloud 14:40, August 2, 2011 (UTC)
Hahaha hurt my feelings? Naaah, I'm just deppressed that I couldn't come up with anything witty! =D SquallRocks FFXIII - Sprite-MadLightning.png06:08, August 3, 2011 (UTC)

@MystRay: Completely agree with your statement.  TheBlueDragoon Dissicon ff10 Yun1.png01:12, August 7, 2011 (UTC)
