Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy[edit | edit source]


Vaan appears as the hero representing Final Fantasy XII. He is a fairly new addition to the cycles of war, and offers naive but heartfelt comments on the events putting him at odds with Lightning. Vaan finds Terra and is forced to fight her to defend himself when she attacks him. He later sees her being tortured by Kefka, and helps her escape when he realizes she isn't fighting for Chaos willingly, assuming a role similar to Terra's compatriot Locke in Final Fantasy VI.

Explaining he doesn't care about her allegiance and just wanted to help, Vaan asks Terra to hide until he can take her to Cosmos and have her turn Terra into one of her warriors, which she later becomes. Vaan accompanies the others to the Lands of Discord and sacrifices himself to seal the portal to The Void the manikins are emerging from.

Vaan's first alternate outfit is based on his Yoshitaka Amano art, giving him a dark gray and black version of his base outfit. His second alternate outfit is his Tactics A2 attire, a light blue shirt under his vest with different pants. As a bonus fourth outfit available for download, Vaan wears an original design by Final Fantasy XII character designer Akihiko Yoshida, dressing as a traditional sea pirate with a pirate hat and blue and white boots and a coat.

Vaan is indirectly mentioned in a Mognet letter sent by Sablé. It talks about Penelo, her work ethics as the "item shop girl from Rabanastre" and her personality when Sablé discovered she was kidnapped by a bangaa. The mail is a tease to Vaan because Sablé was comparing him to Penelo.

Watching You, Kupo

You understand, right? Right, kupo? The item shop girl at Rabanastre is a hard worker with a sunny disposition. That brat friend of hers should learn from her, kupo. I hope she comes back safely, kupo...

Online description

Vaan appears as a default playable character.

Vaan possesses the highest raw luck of all playable characters, which not only ensures reducing the chances of being damaged should a player perform badly in music stages, but also increases the chances of obtaining rare items afterwards. Putting Vaan in the party almost always guarantees a rare item is obtained, and as most of his abilities focus on increasing his luck, Vaan is best used in Dark Notes or more difficult music stages to obtain better items.

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call[edit | edit source]

A boy with his eyes on the sky who suffers discrimination and poverty, dreaming of the sky pirates who fly above all. Stumbling into an intrigue of nations and empires, he faces any enemy with idealistic resolve.


Vaan is a default playable character. If the player did not select him among their party of four, he can later be unlocked by collecting Green Crystal Shards.

He is a Treasure-oriented character. His Limit, Pyroclasm, deals damage in proportion to his Strength, Magic and Level.
