Top 10 Final Fantasy Characters
Back once again for the renegade master, my quest slash current obsession to rank Final Fantasy things continues. This time, we'll be taking a look at the top 10 characters that have graced the franchise. Only actually playable characters will be held for consideration here, because that's already an extensive list. Moreover, I've decided not to include entries that are playable, technically, for a short period of time. So, while everyone thinks Sephiroth is the coolest anime badass ever, their ten minutes or so of hands-on runtime isn't worth a mention.
As an extra addendum, anyone's appearance in the Dissidia spinoff is discarded as well, because that would get fairly confusing. It has nothing to do with the fact that I thought Dissidia was not a very good series. It's purely a canonical decision. Admittedly, those games make the older protagonists a little more lively on the surface, but it doesn't move the needle enough to matter.
It's more than probable that this list will have a running theme. I tried my best to include a varied cast, but as so many characters in the franchise are top tier, a lot of the known archetypes started to blend together. As such, some personalities popped out a little more than others. View it as a way to illustrate that Final Fantasy has had a great amount of wonderful heroes.
This list will go from 1 as the bottom pick, to 10 being the top dog. They're all great, regardless. Here are the top 10 Final Fantasy characters.
