Alisha's post made me lol. If Tifa can handle Cloud's buster sword, she could probably handle Barret's Ungarmaxx. (yes, this is said with tongue in cheek).
Let's face it. It's all about Cid's Dragoon Lance. :P
I remember watching Advent Children with my at-the-time girlfriend and she kept snarking at Tifa for being so nice. She was even worse when playing FFVII. I don't know how many times I had to remind her that Tifa was a nice girl, but it became sort of a running gag after a while.
And that's one thing I thought was cool about FFX. Tidus wasn't all shy and awkward when it came to Yuna. He approached her any chance he got, and I liked when Wakka warned him not to get close to her, and he just shrugged and hit on her anyway.
That dream sequence after the first Eidolon trial. Tidus having to choose between Rikku and Yuna was just funny to watch before Jecht cock blocked him. Then again, I actually liked the fact that you could raise affection values with the girls during the game, even though it ultimately went nowhere because reasons. I sort of wish you could do that in FFVIII. Maybe then Quistis would have a chance. :D
