  8. Genesis is a better villain, he is more controlled and calm, unlike Seifer who tends to be very rash. TheWOL Dissicon ff1 WoL4.png 13:19, November 18, 2011 (UTC)
  9. God, Seifer is so unbelievably annoying. I hate him. Genesis is my 2nd favorite so no more explanation needed. --RazielZero 15:30, November 18, 2011 (UTC)

  3. Seifer's romantic dream is cooler than listening to gothic poetry every time you see Genesis (he's still somewhat cool though). SidVI Dissicon ff7 Tifa2.png 12:50, November 18, 2011 (UTC)

Would have voted for Seifer if he was in Dissidia or if VIII's story wasn't so convoluted at times.  < Kamikaze Pardee > 09:45, November 18, 2011 (UTC)

The "schoolboy rival" storyline is a good idea (if a bit Harry Pottery), but the way it's executed in FFVIII is just poor. You get to know Seifer for like 40 minutes in the start of game, then he's off and you just never really see him much after. And every time you see him they try too hard to instil that he is more evil than Satan so you would want to stay focused in opposing him even if you "never see him" so... Same as in Harry Potter really. Make your schoolboy rival some kind of mini-Hitler you dehumanise them too far and it just ruins any believable character interaction you might have had going. Like seriously, Seifer enjoys his fantasies of slaughtering all the SeeDs one by one and bombing Balamb Garden to the ground and torturing Squall in D-District prison? Dude...what? It would be a much more believable/better approach if instead of gloating over this stuff he'd realise he has way too much on his plate all of a sudden but it's too late to turn back now. But instead he's like muahahahaha die SeeD die. Well. Guess he was just "brainwashed" huh.Keltainentoukokuu 16:28, November 18, 2011 (UTC)
Seifer confused me too. Is he really evil, is he misguided, does he actually think himself a hero, is he brainwashed? Is it just an evil act he puts on to convince himself, or does he really buy it? Another example of FF8's sloppy writing skewing whatever message was intended. Doreiku Kuroofangu 17:48, November 18, 2011 (UTC)

I almost feel sorry for Siefer in this fight. Almost. Not gonna change my vote. King of Noobs 00:47, November 22, 2011 (UTC)

Last Week's Fight

This Week's Fight!
Kuja Seymour
Dissidia Kuja.png WINNER

Votes for the Angel of Death

  1. AT least he was in Dissidia... LegendCrystarium Crystal Lightning.pngAqua 01:02, November 11, 2011 (UTC)
  2.  CloudyKrystal Dissicon ff7 Clo2.png Cloudy Krystal 01:14, November 11, 2011 (UTC)
  3. Koharu Nami 03:15, November 11, 2011 (UTC)
  4. I find characters that seem to defy death and repeatedly come back for you in the same game/series to be rather annoying... King of Noobs 04:59, November 11, 2011 (UTC)
  5. Jimcloud 05:33, November 11, 2011 (UTC)
  6.  NeoZEROX Dissicon ff6 Ter4.png 07:27, November 11, 2011 (UTC)

  8.  The SirLaguna Dissicon ff8 Lag1.png 12:32, November 11, 2011 (UTC)
  9. I find Kuja's hair and outfit less insane than Seymour's, then again... SidVI Dissicon ff7 Tifa2.png 14:35, November 11, 2011 (UTC)
  10. Must be a joke, that thing over there can't beat Kuja, he is actually a great villain unlike Seymour. --RazielZero 19:14, November 11, 2011 (UTC)
  11. This was a very hard choice since I absolutely love them both, but Kuja is and always will be the best villain in any game. MystRay 21:02, November 11, 2011 (UTC)
  12. Seymour is much better than people give him credit for, but he still can't compete with Kuja. Not even close -- Sorceror Nobody Flan.PNG 14:01, November 12, 2011 (UTC)
  13.  Armageddon11! Dissicon ff12 Gab2.png 14:02, November 12, 2011 (UTC)

Votes for the Undead Priest

  1.  < Kamikaze Pardee > 02:38, November 11, 2011 (UTC)
  2. At least i was positive that he was a dude the first time i saw him.. TheWOL Dissicon ff1 WoL4.png 04:03, November 11, 2011 (UTC)

  4. オメガ Mk.XII 07:21, November 11, 2011 (UTC)
  5. Does Kujie-coo have ability to have thousands of forms? No. Does he have "horns"? No. Is he a member of any faith? No. Shimoa for the win!—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) 14:40, November 11, 2011 (UTC)
  6. Seymour was always more intimidating. AlVan 16:37, November 11, 2011 (UTC)
  7. People give Seymour a lot of stick, and even though I do like Kuja as a protagonist, I'm going to have to vote for the priest :)  Ultimate Dark Bahamut.pngAnnihilation  09:36, November 12, 2011 (UTC)
  8. Voting for the stupider design. SquallRocks FFXIII - Sprite-MadLightning.png05:24, November 13, 2011 (UTC)
