Even though I didn't played the game yet, coz I don't have a PS2, Because of what I saw in youtube, you know, the FMVs, I noticed Vaan's cool. Then I saw the Conflicts here about Vaan, as just closed minded comments like he's gay, no personality. so I did this. Devil Breaker 12:11, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Thanks Guys[edit source]

I'm a Vaan Fan also, you could help me guys, coz even though I look at the page all the time, 1 man can't do it fast. everyone is welcome to help or edit this page, as long as no one vandalizes it. I just cant finish it yet because I'm in a hectic schedule. I'm reviewing for a College Entrance Exam. Like I said, help is needed. 1 man could make a difference, but people cooperating with each other could make a significance. EDIT: I'll be adding some pictures, for now.

Wactch out[edit source]

  • Dont worry about me, even if I get flamed, trolled or panned about this, its a proof that Vaan deserves to be the hero. Its just some of the "side comments" of people, not noticing the uniqueness of a character. and besides, even though I like Tidus, Vaan's better. Devil Breaker 12:08, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Well if you don't worry what others think you should be fine.Yuffie2211

Suggested section[edit source]

I've been thinking of explaining the "no shirt" thing and was wondering if that was what you had in mind.--Werefang 15:26, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

I basically just copied the Vaan template and changed the words. You can change the image, color, and words to make it how you want.--Werefang 12:29, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

45px This user knows that Vaan is a worthy hero, whether you like it or not.

Because of Werefang and Cluna (Krystal)[edit source]


You sure you don't want to change the image or color? If you want, I can help you with that.--Werefang 21:25, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

Sure that would be awesomey awesome DB36

Okay, what color and what image did you have in mind. On color take your pick from [[Help:Color Chart|here]]. On Image, Tell me the Ideal image that you want to use and I'll edit it as best I can.--Werefang 11:42, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
Actually, any color on or off of there. I could use ColorZilla to get the hex value for you. Master Conjurer 00:59, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
Anything that is not sky blue but light colored. That's my idea. how about the others??? Devil Breaker 36 04:30, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
The main color of Final Fantasy XII is #3300CC, and the one for Revenant Wings is darkblue. Master Conjurer 02:31, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
Personally, I don't have any oppinion on the color. I just suggested this so that it didn't look Identical to the standard Vaan box--Werefang 14:26, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
How about what Krystal said? blue... But the image, how about RW?? DB36 14:28, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Just thinking...[edit source]

If anyone would like to tell why Tidus' the true hero, since Tidus is hated as much as Vaan. Kuzlalala Squee! 11:19, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

To be honest, Tidus isn't hated nearly as much as Vaan. Tidus is disliked because of his voice; Vaan is hated because of everything about him. If you are making a page for "Why Tidus isn't bad" you should probably put in a link.--Werefang 12:12, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
I have to agree with Werefang. There are more people who like Tidus than people who like Vaan. Its like this mathematical equation: No. of Tidus's Fans < No. of Vaan Fans. Hope I'm right about the greater than less than thing, its been years since I've used these. Devil Breaker 36 13:08, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, DB, you have the sign backwards. I was taught to think of it as Pac-man or a mouth. Pac-man would obviously want more so he eats his way towards the greater. So the inequality looks like this: #of Tidus fans > #of Vaan fans.--Werefang 13:26, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, I really hate math.... Devil Breaker 36 04:15, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

About Vaan's parents[edit source]

According to the game, his parents died when a plague struck Rabanastre before the war with Archadia. Vaan says that after that, he and Reks were taken in by Penelo's parents, who died in the war.

Vaan speaks about this with Basch during a cutscene shortly after he join the party for good.Discordius 02:30, 4 July 2009 (UTC)



Vaan is Annoying[edit source]

Vaan is just an annoying character. Sure, he's the main character, but by no means the hero. This is Balthier. Vaan is whiny, disagreeable, and he asked Fran how old she was. He's a street rat and I try to keep him in the back of my party if I can. ——Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~.

A few reasons why people hate Vaan.[edit source]

Well ,other than the fact that he's a twat, and his story feel shallow, he's overshadowed by four BADASSES in the party. Balthier, Basch, Fran and Ashe (In order of badassery) are all badasses, and as such deserve more attention.

Another reason why a lot of people hate Vaan was because he was just tacked on to the story so that the fangirls in Japan wouldn't bitch about it; Westerners could give jack shit (pardon the saying) about an effeminate lead character.

That's the key: Effemiate Lead Character. It's nearly a cliche in the Final Fantasy series (averted in FFXIII with the main character). And sometimes you don't even need that to make the Fangirls squee (which is essentially the reason for the Effeminate Lead Character syndrome); I mean, Balthier's there and he isn't as effeminate.

His story is also quite shallow--in a nutshell, his story goes like "OMG I WANNA BE A SKY PIRATE" and "HURRR PENELO DURRRR". Sure, he does have a contribution to the plot (being the entertainment of the, but the thing is, even that is tacked on, too.
