Challenges[edit | edit source]

Challenge #1: Final Fantasy[edit | edit source]

Difficulty ★★★☆☆
Effort ★★★★☆

As you may have read above, I have borrowed my friend's copy of Final Fantasy Origins for the PlayStation. He never finished either of them, saying that it was "boring". So I played it and I beaten it, on Normal difficulty. I finished with what I think is a pretty low average level.

The Challenge: EITHER by using the following four characters: Warrior, Thief, Black Mage and Red Mage, beat the game with no party member above level 33, OR by using any character combination you want, beat the game with no party member above level 30. Use any version of Final Fantasy you have, but make sure you play in Normal Difficulty if given the choice.

Challenge #2: Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-[edit | edit source]

Difficulty ★★☆☆☆
Effort ★★★★★

I have always said that Crisis Core was too easy, so I tried to make it challenging for myself. I played it without participating any of the missions (apart from the mandatory mission at the beginning of the game). This is actually a lot harder than it sounds, as not only you'll level up as much as you would normally do, you'll also won't be able to equip more than two accessories, use items in Materia Fusion (therefore stat building will be very tough) or have any of the Summons or Chocobo Mode on the DMW (except Phoenix). This makes the game much more fun so this challenge is worthwhile!

The Challenge: Beat the game without playing any missions (except the first mandatory one) in Normal difficulty. Power-levelling (running between zone to zone just to encounter enemies and level up) is not allowed for this challenge!

Challenge #3 Final Fantasy X[edit | edit source]

Difficulty ★★★★☆
Effort ★☆☆☆☆

Blitzball. You either love it or hate it. Remember way way back when you first played Final Fantasy X, you got to Luca and played that mandatory match against the Luca Goers? You probably got beaten very badly, however once you understand the rules and developed a few strategies, you replay the game and you beat them. I thought about setting you guys a challenge of beating them, but I thought that's too easy so I decided to raise the stakes a little...

The Challenge: In the mandatory blitzball match (i.e. the match just before the fiends attack the stadium), beat the Goers with a goal difference of four or higher.

Challenge #4 Final Fantasy X[edit | edit source]

Difficulty ★★★☆☆
Effort ★★☆☆☆

Not content with setting one challenge, I thought I should set another. This is another tricky yet attainable challenge, but with the right players, strategy and opponents, you can do it.

The Challenge: Score at least 12 goals in one match against any team. Remember to specify which team you played against, as the cluttered eyesore you'll get will depend on the team you beat.

Challenge #5: Final Fantasy Tactics[edit | edit source]

Difficulty ★★★☆☆
Effort ★★★★★

There are few FF games that have such a steep difficulty curve as Final Fantasy Tactics (and the War of the Lions version), so you would expect the difficulty to be high all the way through the game. Well, not really. As soon as you get one specific character, the rest of the game is rendered ridiculously easy, which is a shame because it did taint the game slightly. Yes that person I was referring to is Count Cidolfus Orlandeau. So how would you fare if you, say, didn't use him once you acquired him. Or even better, how would you fare if you didn't use any characters with special jobs at all?

The Challenge: Beat the game without using characters that use special jobs in the main storyline battles, except when they are guests. These characters are Mustadio, Agrias, Rapha, Marach, Orlandeau, Meliadoul, Beowulf, Reis, Construct 8, Cloud, Byblos, Balthier or Luso.

Challenge #6: Final Fantasy II[edit | edit source]

Difficulty ★★★★☆
Effort ★★☆☆☆

Ah, Final Fantasy II, the series' first attempt at producing a story-driven game. I found this game to be quite hard, despite what other people said. Mind you, it got a hell of a lot easier when I got Osmose as beforehand I was running out of MP halfway through the dungeon. But anyway. When I played I foolishly sold my Blood Sword over at Fynn, meaning I had to beat the Emperor the hard way. My Protect spell (or whatever it was called in my version) was a lowly level 1 so that was useless. So the Emperor was just smacking Leon and Gus dead with one hit and regaining all his HP while he was at it. So I took the risky step of leaving them dead and just played with Firion and Maria. He was only smacking Firion for 500 damage at a time, which was bearable, and Maria was the healer so I had to keep her alive. Firion had the Masamune. Eventually the boss knocked out Maria with a well placed Flare but thankfully, Firion kills him in the next turn. So all in all it was a highly unconventional way of beating the final boss of the game, and with the help of this challenge, you too can follow in my footsteps and beat the Emperor.

The Challenge: Beat the Emperor (the final boss, not the one at the Cyclone!) using just two characters of your choice. The Blood Sword is banned in this challenge. Remember to specify which two characters you used when you beat the challenge.

Challenge #7: Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-[edit | edit source]

Difficulty ★★☆☆☆
Effort ★★★☆☆

This challenge is based on the powerful superboss Minerva. If you have fought her, you probably used the overpowered Costly Punch attack to deal 99,999 damage a shot, use a Phoenix Down every time your Raise status disappears after every Judgment Arrow (and Death) and beat her within 10 minutes without breaking much of a sweat. I challenge you to defeat Minerva without relying on everything I have just mentioned.

The Challenge: Beat Minerva without dying (and ReRaising) and without using Costly Punch for the duration of the battle. You may equip the Costly Punch materia if it gives you the necessary stat boosts, however you may not use the ability.

Challenge #8: Final Fantasy X[edit | edit source]

Difficulty ★★★★★
Effort ★★★★☆

This is the hardest challenge I have set to date. I'll cut straight to the chase and tell you what to do. If you manage to beat this, I will be very impressed.

The Challenge: Defeat Braska's Final Aeon without breaking the following rules.

  • You must use the Standard Sphere Grid.
  • You are only allowed to use Red Spheres (Power, Mana, Speed, Ability and Fortune) on the sphere grid. That means no Key Spheres, Yellow Spheres, Blue spheres, Yellow Spheres or Purple Spheres. If a character has used even one of these spheres, they are not allowed to participate in battle.
  • Characters must not leave their section of the sphere grid, "their section" being the section they inhabit which are enclosed by locks. If they do, they are not allowed to participate in battle.
  • You are not allowed to use Celestial Weapons during battle.
  • You are allowed to summon aeons, however aeons are not allowed to damage Braska's Final Aeon or the Yu Pagodas.

That is all. Have fun!

Challenge #9: Dissidia Final Fantasy[edit | edit source]

Difficulty ★☆☆☆☆
Effort ★★★★★

Unlike many of the above challenges, this should only take a day for you to complete. Thing is, you have a lot to do in that day. This doesn't require much skill to complete, more like a challenge on your endurance. Remember, after every hour of play, take a 15 minute break.

The Challenge: Fight 120 battles in one day. You don't have to win all the battles, but don't cheat by messing with the PSP clock. I advise you use the Hardcore play plan, as it is easier to count the battles (2 courses instead of 4 or 8).

Challenge #10: Final Fantasy XIII[edit | edit source]

Difficulty ★★★★☆
Effort ★★★☆☆

With its trophy system, setting a challenge that Square hasn't thought up is a bit difficult. But I have managed to create a challenge that should test your strategy. Besides, I haven't made a speed challenge until now.

The Challenge: Defeat the penultimate boss in the game (this one) in under five minutes. The game's Target Time must be greater than seven minutes, nine seconds. You may not equip the Gold Watch.

Challenge #11: Final Fantasy IX[edit | edit source]

Difficulty ★★★☆☆
Effort ★★★★★

Finally, a challenge from the 32bit era! This was actually one of the first challenges that I have thought up but I just couldn't do it... until now! While it had to be dumbed down from what it was to make it feasible, it is still quite the challenge. The hardest part is getting all the necessary equipment to do this challenge as some can be missable.

The Challenge: Choose one character and get him or her to master all abilities and support abilities available to him or her in a single playthrough. Multiple awards are available for each fully mastered character you have so make sure you tell me which character(s) you have fully mastered. Remember for Quina, you also have to get him learn all his Blue Magic too.
Beaten by (specific characters): Sorceror Nobody (Zidane), MMLN メーマウリアン (Zidane, Vivi), RazielZero (Zidane, Vivi, Garnet, Eiko), Hamfruitcake 09 (Zidane, Quina, Garnet), Balthierfan (Zidane, Vivi, Freya), MirrorshardSceada (Zidane, Vivi, Eiko, Freya, Amarant), R8.50Mango (Zidane), Seraphim IX (Zidane, Garnet, Vivi), R8.50Mango (Vivi, Steiner, Eiko)
Beaten by (all eight characters): JBed, DarkRider2000, Bond em7, A.X.A, BlankTH
