Votes for Alexander

  2. The divine fury will rain down upon you! The light of righteousness will cast aside the wicked. The holy word of law will shatter your demonic strength! Gaze in fear and wonder at our unwavering light; Judgement! Likeacupcake 00:07, September 23, 2011 (UTC)"
  3. My favorite summon is bahaumut, of course. This guy KILLS him in IX! Doesn't Odin get his ass handed to him in VII?Crunchy Moogle 05:18, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
  4. Only because Seifer split Odin in two in FFVIII, also this fortress is HOLY!! LegendCrystarium Crystal Lightning.pngAqua --VOTE IN THE LIGHTNING COLOSSEUM! 05:20, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
  5. Odin is a good summon if he can damage with Zantetsuken or use Gungnir. SidVI Dissicon ff7 Tifa2.png 06:20, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
  6. Odin's been annoying me on VIII lately. Alexander, on the other hand, has some very useful abilities - you can't get Doomtrain without him -- Sorceror Nobody Flan.PNG 07:58, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
  7. While Odin Looks VERY VERY Cool,he left me in $h!t Many times, and Alexander has always been a mystery to me,so yes, I think his armor would be hard to cut by Zantetsuken!--Lonely Wild Rose.jpg Rose 14:00, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
  8. Odin is pretty cool, but the FFIX version of Alexander is way too awesome. --RazielZero 16:33, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
  9. For his constant, reliable damage. Very few critters are immune, or worse, absorb, Holy damage. King of Noobs 18:56, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
  10. HP 9999 - Divine Judgement = KO;-)Omega Mk.XII 21:38, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
  11. Alexander is awesome. Odin is cheap.
     Ultimate Gullwings logo.jpg Annihilation   08:00, September 25, 2011 (UTC)
  12. The most powerful summon, IMO, in XIII. --Xepscern 20:26, September 29, 2011 (UTC)

Votes for Odin

  1. Koharu Nami 00:03, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
  2. Eh, going with the summon of Darkness, or close to it.  NeoZEROX Dissicon ff6 Ter4.png 00:04, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
  3. I never found Alexander in VII and never used him in VIII. Odin on the other hand was good for killing off a large swarm of small yet frustrating monsters, I could always predict what he could kill.  The SirLaguna Dissicon ff8 Lag1.png 00:25, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
  4.  CloudyKrystal Dissicon ff7 Clo2.png 00:31, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
  5. He was useful in every game except IX I think. AlVan 02:12, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
  6. MystRay 02:26, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
  7. Clarent talk 04:21, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
  8. Difficult choice but mostly because Zantetsuken is awesome.  Kamikaze Pardee Dissicon ff5 Gil1.png 06:38, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
  9. Lord Odin, Master of the Aesir, my liege! I am but your humble servant... MirrorshardSceada 15:20, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
  10. I've loved Odin waaaay before XIII. SquallRocks FFXIII - Sprite-MadLightning.png21:41, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
  11. I like the fact that he can randomly pull out a sword from his sleeve in Crisis Core. --Marael 02:39, September 25, 2011 (UTC)
  12. Odin was a serious pain in the rear in Einherjar, but even so, I liked his Dark Rider better than Alexander's controller. Jimcloud 03:53, September 25, 2011 (UTC)
  13. Alexander isn't that memorable for me. User:R8.50Mango/Sig2 17:52, September 26, 2011 (UTC)
  14. Norse God of Death vs some robot thing that appeared in only 2 of the games I've played. Must I say more? Catuse167 00:35, September 29, 2011 (UTC)
  15. Hope destroyed all awesomeness Alexander had in XIII, while Odin was really bad-ass and fun in VII and VIII. TheWOL 08:00, September 29, 2011 (UTC)

Votes for The Emperor

  1. 00:01, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
  2. Whoring or reasoning...? Meh, just clickee. --ShirubaKurono Dissicon ff13 Lig3.png 00:49, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
  3. The man overthrew Satan, I can't argue against that. - +DeadlySlashSword+ 01:31, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
  4. Jimcloud 02:32, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
  5. Perhaps Barthandalus himself is following The Emperor's Examble? Razordash02:42, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
  6. I'm getting a sense of deja-vu. Never-the-less, the master manipulator gets my vote. King of Noobs 03:49, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
  7. I agree with AlVan, but the Emperor is the first example of a master manipulator. SidVI Dissicon ff7 Tifa2.png 07:13, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
  8.  The SirLaguna Dissicon ff8 Lag1.png 08:34, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
  9. --Lonely Wild Rose.jpg Rose 19:36, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
  10. ;-) Omega Mk.XII 22:22, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
  11. FOR THE EMPEROR AND THE IMPERIUM! User:R8.50Mango/Sig2 16:21, September 17, 2011 (UTC)
  12. --Leon95 08:20, September 19, 2011 (UTC)

Votes for The Primarch

  1. Koharu Nami 00:28, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
  2. FOR FIGHTING FATE!!!!  NeoZEROX Dissicon ff6 Ter4.png 00:46, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
  3. While people may argue about how the series is becoming worse and worse with each game, you have to admit the villains get better and better. None of them, however will ever beat Vayne Solidor. AlVan 01:22, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
  4. Something... Something... Dark side. Hexed 02:34, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
  5. He will come back in XIII-2. He will. SquallRocks FFXIII - Sprite-MadLightning.png02:57, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
  6. Clarent talk 03:52, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
  7. SUPERPOPE!! LegendCrystarium Crystal Lightning.pngAqua --VOTE IN THE LIGHTNING COLOSSEUM! 06:43, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
  8. I've said that before, but you just have to respect this guy for spinning a net of intrigues and lies so confusing, that perhaps not even he himself understood everything anymore. And if he did, it's even more the reason to respect him. MirrorshardSceada 09:33, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
  9. Mateus was a manipulator, true, but he wasn't quite good enough to qualify as a Magnificent Bastard. Superpope, by contrast, is a shoo-in for that classification -- Sorceror Nobody Flan.PNG 16:36, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
  10. Superpope is and always will be the villain with some of the best voice acting. The Emperor on the other hand is fairly subpar. MystRay 21:02, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
  11. ^Everything above sums up my reasoning for this vote.  Kamikaze Pardee Dissicon ff5 Gil1.png 03:57, September 17, 2011 (UTC)
  12. Never been a fan of the Emperor, on the other hand Dysley is pretty cool. I really like his poetic speech style. --RazielZero 10:16, September 17, 2011 (UTC)
  13. Don't really like the emperor, and there's always the "shop at primarch" pun.

Interesting choice: One who desires eternal domination against one who desires total destruction, though both use others in order to achieve their opposing goals. 00:20, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
