All you Luca Blight people are boring. Pick something else!
Your picks weren't exactly strong either. If you really want a detestable villain in BoF4, for example, you'd want to pick Yuna, not Fou Lu.
Beats seeing Luca over and over.
But I'm open for debate. I liked Fou-Lu mainly because you see the depth into him - his reasons to fight. He was more tortured to make his judgements (rather than evil for the sake of doing evil). Not a strong choice, but you see much more with him than most.
I didn't pick really strong
choices as much as unique
. Villains are easy...they're bad
. It's the games who do it differently
I like the most.
Kefka - succeeded to some extent. Torched the earth, obtained a brief god-like status. Crazy and a good example of just a pure, black heartedness.
Xehanort - Atypical looking, major credit to Nomura who created a balance between JRPG aethetic (the wardrobe and over-the-top keyblade he owns) and more Western cartoon influence (how many JRPGs have a bald villain?). He had an impish and creepy smile, and it rarely leaves his face. Design wise, I think he's great.
My Baten Kaitos choice was because THAT type of villain rarely appears.
Chrono Cross and Trigger, like I said, fight for more biological and evolutionary reasons. It's not evil, it's self-preservation. Who said it HAD to be EVIL doing, especially when other reasons make sense?
Suikoden III's villains are fun because you get to play them for a bit. Similar to Fou-Lu reasoning, it's nice to see the other side of things. Grandia III had some of the worst villains in history. I kinda chose this to counter it.
Tales of the Abyss - if you want conviction in a villain, there it is. He went to the ends of the earth to set his plan and he brilliantly establishes it and walks through it with you almost the entire way. He wants to change their fucked up little reliant planet into something completely new and free. The means, as often seen, are the demented part of his plan, but he's nevertheless admirable.
10 Wise Man (SO2), granted, not my strongest villain. But I like the idea of them more. Shame tri-Ace has trouble fleshing stories out.
