  2. Golbez > Ultimecia. A.J. two (Smashboards) 00:24, October 14, 2011 (UTC)
  3. Golbez actually did stuff, and SD was actually dangerous. Catuse167 00:35, October 14, 2011 (UTC)
  4. Epic Xepscern 00:48, October 14, 2011 (UTC)
  5. He has a sexy deep voice. Kupohunter FFV gilgamesh.gif 01:35, October 14, 2011 (UTC)
  6. Greiver was pathetically easy to fight, one of the easiest bosses ever. TheWOL Dissicon ff1 WoL4.png 04:09, October 14, 2011 (UTC)
  7. Even if he is from IV, I prefer him to Ultimecia, mainly because he was one of 3 things I actually liked about the game. User:R8.50Mango/Sig2 15:32, October 14, 2011 (UTC)
  8. Griever is good, but I hate Ultimecia, Golbez was a decent villain. --RazielZero 16:45, October 14, 2011 (UTC)

  11. I like/hated him like an older brother. Punny intended. King of Noobs 04:50, October 15, 2011 (UTC)
  12. If it wasn't for a certain summoner, Golbez would have defeated Cecil, Kain and co. SidVI Dissicon ff7 Tifa2.png 08:39, October 15, 2011 (UTC)
  13. Better than Ultimecia in Dissidia. I also loved him in FFIV so...  Ultimate Dark Bahamut.pngAnnihilation  16:37, October 15, 2011 (UTC)
  14. Took me a while to decide since I kinda like Griever and do not really dislike Ultimecia that much, but still, Golbez and his Shadow Dragon are just a tad bit too awesome for them to handle. But only just a bit. MirrorshardSceada 21:55, October 16, 2011 (UTC)
  15. Golbez's fight is one of the most epic fights in Final Fantasy history. He appears, paralyzes your entire party in a single move, and then takes his time summoning a dragon that insta-kills your party one by one. Amazing fight. The only story driven battle that surpassed this was Galuf's suicide. (sorry, Tellah)Crunchy Moogle 04:12, October 18, 2011 (UTC)

  9.  CloudyKrystal Dissicon ff7 Clo2.png 03:07, October 14, 2011 (UTC)
  10. I like the design and Ultimecia's time-based powers a little more.  < Kamikaze Pardee > 22:39, October 14, 2011 (UTC)
  11. Omega Mk.XII 12:35, October 15, 2011 (UTC)
  12. Ultimecia well forever be the worst final boss that I have ever faced. How dare you take my magic! >:U SquallRocks FFXIII - Sprite-MadLightning.png21:31, October 16, 2011 (UTC)
  13. Better character and better summon... MystRay 00:34, October 17, 2011 (UTC)
  14. Griever is on my list of favorite summons. It's just got so much going for it design-wise and Great Attractor is pretty awesome-looking, too! Bluestarultor Best-of Stellar Arena sigicon.png BSA 00:38, October 17, 2011 (UTC)

Fun fact, this was gonna appear in my fanfic, Golbez would channel power from the Crystal and he and Cecil would band together to summon the Shadow Dragon to fight Griever. I decided not to go with it though, can't recall why. Doreiku Kuroofangu 00:01, October 14, 2011 (UTC)

I think i remember you drake "patenting" the name UltiGreaver in your FFVIII walk-through, why didn't you use it here?? TheWOL Dissicon ff1 WoL4.png 04:14, October 14, 2011 (UTC)

Because then I'd need an appropriate combination name for Golbez and the Shadow Dragon, and somehow "Dragbez" didn't strike my fancy. Doreiku Kuroofangu 04:16, October 14, 2011 (UTC)
Ahh, good point. TheWOL Dissicon ff1 WoL4.png 02:48, October 15, 2011 (UTC)

Speaking of Galuf and Tellah, I wonder which sacrifice would win in a battle arena vote? Not a bad idea...;)Crunchy Moogle 04:16, October 18, 2011 (UTC)

  9. - +DeadlySlashSword+ 18:29, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
  10. SN's mention of Crisis Core is what won me over this time. Apart from that, I do not really prefer either of them MirrorshardSceada 21:20, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
  11. Yet another strange fight. I don't remember Edge doing anything cool anyway. I did like his ninjutsu but that's not enough to make up for everything else. AlVan 21:54, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
  12. Omega Mk.XII 23:36, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
  13.  < Kamikaze Pardee > 15:03, October 8, 2011 (UTC)
  14. Any negative you can throw at Sephy, Edge is 10 times that. Xepscern 23:57, October 8, 2011 (UTC)
  15. As much as Sephy is a bad villain when you really take a hard look at him, Edge is a worse Ninja. Like how bad of a Ninja do you have to be that when you fail to steal something you twist your ankle, faceplant, and fall off a cliff for 54093284709528 damage? :/ Bluestarultor Best-of Stellar Arena sigicon.png BSA 00:26, October 9, 2011 (UTC)
  16. Sephiroth is overrated, but for a reason (He was also a pretty cool guy in CC). Edge is pretty much nothing special. --RazielZero 06:54, October 9, 2011 (UTC)
  17. Seph is better from both a storyline and gameplay standpoint; Edge is incapable of doing anything but flirting with Rydia and running away. Catuse167 00:59, October 10, 2011 (UTC)
  18. I love his theme. SquallRocks FFXIII - Sprite-MadLightning.png01:42, October 10, 2011 (UTC)

Votes for Edge

  1. Two over sized Shurikens > One over sized Katana.  The SirLaguna Dissicon ff8 Lag1.png 00:07, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
  2. Sephy will probably win anyway. I like Edge's outfit. Koharu Nami 01:08, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
  3. ShirubaKurono Dissicon ff13 Lig3.png 01:20, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
  4. Shurikens are better looking! Even if they're over-sized! :3  CloudyKrystal Dissicon ff7 Clo2.png 01:31, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
  5. Edge is a cool character and has a neat background. Not exactly the most useful character in IV, but at least he can throw weapons in the back row for decent damage.Crunchy Moogle 04:30, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
  6. Edge is a flippin' ninja. 8bit 05:12, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

The Viewer's Box

Great thanks to everyone who voted last week, you helped break a record long challenged but never broken - with 39 votes, Zidane vs Kain broke the record set in our very first fight ever, Zack vs Balthier, which has 35 votes. The other fights last week all had 30 votes or more too, which is quite good for this arena which normally gets 25 votes per fight, give or take a few. With TA letting me vote in the DNC again, and by proxy my sig back in the DNC, heh heh, it'd be nice if votes could continue to pick up like this, but if not I'm still quite pleased with that lone week. Again, thanks to everyone for coming out to vote and making it a great week, exactly what I had dared hope the Week 50 Celebration would be. :) Doreiku Kuroofangu 00:01, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

Oh, so you're not going to tell any of the unenlightened what they missed last week? :P Jimcloud 00:53, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
Enlightenment can only be obtained, it cannot be granted. Doreiku Kuroofangu 01:16, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

It was either painfully obvious or something I completely missed. I'm not sure if I'll ever know which.Crunchy Moogle 04:33, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
