  14. Not much of a Tifa fan, but I just didn't really understand why we needed another character from XI in D012. I mean, they could have just put in anyone else, people like Garnet, Zack, Vivi, Fang, Vanille or anyone but her. She is fun, but pointless. So also keep in mind that this is not really a vote for Tifa or her boobs. --RazielZero 10:42, October 1, 2011 (UTC)

  7. One of my custom quests is entirely dedicated to Prishe beating Tifa. It's extremely satisfying... and no, the AI Tifa is not set to be weak. She gets stronger in each fight -- Sorceror Nobody Flan.PNG 16:21, September 30, 2011 (UTC)
  8. Prishe! <3 Seriously, just because she's from XI doesn't make her a bad character, just like being from VII doesn't make Tifa a good one. For me, it is more the opposite way around... MirrorshardSceada 17:52, September 30, 2011 (UTC)

"...but I just didn't really understand why we needed another character from XI in D012" Because obviously, VII isn't at all overexposed with four characters (more than any other), and daring to have two from XI (equal to most of the other games) would just be silly -- Sorceror Nobody Flan.PNG 20:24, October 1, 2011 (UTC)

Actually Aerith is not really a character, but that's just my nitpicking :D I think it was you who said that XI and XIV shouldn't have been a main numbered game, and I also think like that. I mean why put another character from an MMO game. I understand that it was considered main, but a lot of people didn't even play them. And yes, FFVII is again overrated in this game, I don't deny that, but the fact still remain that there could have been a dozen more characters from other games. Hell even more characters for FFXIII and so on :/ Plus I think that she isn't as memorable as characters from the main games. --RazielZero 17:23, October 3, 2011 (UTC)
I must admit that my view on XI has softened somewhat since I started playing Dissidia, largely thanks to Shantotto and, yes, Prishe. More to the point, my view on XI's inclusion is more subtle than that: it's not just "Oh, another XI character", it's more like "Well, XI is in already, so sure, let's have another character". Most of all, I judge Shantotto and Prishe on their own merits rather than on them being from XI, and I like both of them a lot. Similarly, my main issue with Tifa is not really that she's from VII (although it doesn't help). I just don't feel that she was as notable or interesting an addition as the other new characters, and her fighting style is marked out mainly by the feints that I still maintain are a questionable addition. Creating whole new styles for the villains is fair enough, because they didn't really have clear styles before. Tacking something onto Tifa – who already has an established style because she's been playable – that she has never used before is rather less to my liking. </minor wall of text>
As for the VII-ness, I would've preferred a new arena to a new character -- Sorceror Nobody Flan.PNG 17:47, October 3, 2011 (UTC)

"Prishe doesn't even make sense... she is such a useless character in Dissidia, that She's not even worth trying..." - Lonely, allow me to enlighten you - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPGTSyoRJSE. I'll also note that while Jecht has the Falcon Punch, Prishe has the Falcon Kick. What does Tifa have? Doreiku Kuroofangu 20:19, October 4, 2011 (UTC)

And if I might add to that, it is certainly true that Prishe doesn't make sense - for those who are ignorant enough to not accept XI as a proper game, and thus hate everything from it. To those who give XI it's fair chance, Prishe does make a lot of sense - arguably even more than certain characters like Tifa... MirrorshardSceada 09:11, October 5, 2011 (UTC)

@Crunchy Moogle: Using gay as a derogative is not right. It has never been shown that Vaan or Kuja, despite their attire, are homosexual. SidVI Dissicon ff7 Tifa2.png 18:04, October 3, 2011 (UTC)

More precisely, it has never been shown that Kuja is anything but asexual, and we know for a fact that Vaan is not gay. Their attire is entirely irrelevant; Kuja's is merely flamboyant, as usual, and Vaan's isn't even stereotypically anything but pirate-y RAmen -- Sorceror Nobody Flan.PNG 18:14, October 3, 2011 (UTC)

  11. It pains me to say that I still can't really judge Ashe well due to having not really played XII... Meanwhile, I'm looking forward to Valkyrie Lightning. Will she now follow the rules of the norse mithology and serve Odin instead of vice versa? MirrorshardSceada 18:03, September 30, 2011 (UTC)

The Viewer's Box

Curiously, at this exact moment this is the only fight that is a repeat of the original - in the original fights, Balthier beat Zack, Prishe beat Tifa, Vaan beat Kuja and Zidane beat Kain. Of course there's still time for this to change, but it's interesting. Doreiku Kuroofangu 14:39, October 6, 2011 (UTC)

If you "get it", you have achieved enlightenment. :) Doreiku Kuroofangu 00:18, September 30, 2011 (UTC)

After this week is over, someone's gotta post what they "got," cause quite frankly, I'm not gettin' anything. King of Noobs 23:27, September 30, 2011 (UTC)

You should try to see what "Ghost" and "Ultros" represents on this wiki =D TheWOL 04:13, October 1, 2011 (UTC)
Explaining the joke means that anyone who "gets it" from now on will not have achieved enlightenment. They will merely have been informed. I hope you can live with yourself after this act of cruelly depriving people of their chance to be enlightened -- Sorceror Nobody Flan.PNG 20:33, October 1, 2011 (UTC)
That may be true but there are some who do not seek enlightenment but rather simple understanding, that is all i have provided. TheWOL 04:18, October 3, 2011 (UTC)

Most people who do, probably been on here long enough to know. If you need another hint, the ghost pretty much gives it away. Razordash18:39, October 2, 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.

  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)

  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)
