Japan ranks their favorite male characters from the Final Fantasy series -- Source: Nova Crystallis



"The official Final Fantasy forums recently held a vote to determine the top male characters among users.

The results are in, with the top five having been through a rollercoaster race to the finish. Early on Zack and Cloud fought head to head, but Zack's lead widened in the second half. At one point Cloud ran the risk of being outpaced by Zidane, who eventually passed both Tidus and Squall. After a fierce battle, the top five had finally assembled.

Beyond that are the remainder of the characters counted with a total of 73 names that made the cut. Those with duplicate rankings held the same amount of votes, and are thus counted as a tied ranking.

The next poll will focus on the female characters of Final Fantasy."


Results:

1. Zack (FFVII)
2. Cloud (FFVII)
3. Zidane (FFIX)
4. Tidus (FFX)
5. Squall (FFVIII)
6. Bartz (FFV)

17. Auron (FFX)
17. Hope (FFXIII)
19. Noctis (FF Versus XIII)

21. Edge (FFIV)
21. Kuja (FFIX)
23. Irvine (FFVIII)
23. Gilbart (FFIV)
25. Vaan (FFXII)
25. Onion Knight (FFIII)
25. Galuf (FFV)
25. Golbez (FFIV)

Where to begin with that list. Kinda disappointed that every Cid got rolled into one entry given how completely different some of them turned out to be. Vaan and Zell shouldn't be tied with Sabin, Galuf, Golbez, and Vivi. Hope is way too high. Lol Noctis. Steiner is way too low. And I'd argue that Tidus and Squall should be tied with rock bottom but they're main characters and thus is hard to argue against that but still, Butz should've been higher than those chucklefucks.

At least the fanwanking over Sephiroth has been diminishing and there's thankfully no sign of Gaius Baltar Caius Ballad.

It's a crime for Rufus to be so low.

For Rufus, Cid[s], and Steiner to be so low and Tidus to be so high...and for Versus' Noctis to even be there at all, proves Japanese tastes as not to be taken terribly serious.  Biggest surprise is Vivi ranking so low, I thought Japanese peeps had a thing for mascot-like characters... he's almost half of one.

Vivi would be a mascot character if he was a one dimensional character (which he's not).

And another thing that I notice is where's Gilgamesh? Sure he's just a lackey/recurring boss/reference, but he's still got more going for him than losers like Hope Esteem and Noel Christ. Plus Vincent should be lower purely by virtue of Dirge of Cerberus existing (Mr. Fill My Dark Soul With LIIIIIGHT!!!!! and his prepubescent love interest beating Mr. Leading Man Balthier is bullshit).

Also, the Type-0 guys just remind me of how disappoint I am at Squeenix's refusal to localize anything non-high budget/good.

He's the FF-Black Mage just with more of a role and a helluva lot more speaking lines. :P

The fact that Zack and Zidane, two of my favorite male characters in the series, are in the top three automatically makes that list awesome. Thumbs up, Japan.

Not sure, but that reminds me.  The official North America Square Enix store has tons of games, new and old, up for sale with free shipping.  I got FF Theatrhythm for 20 bucks total.  Saw KH Birth by Sleep for $10 total, Deus EX: HDR for $15 total, and other older PS2 games as well as new 3DS/PS3 stuff.  Definitely worth checking out.

Contained within included not only a look at the future of the series, but guest illustrations as well as several comments from a selection of the series' staff.

So whatever happened to Japan's ranking of favorite female FF characters? I've been looking forward to mocking that list for half a month now.

I just noticed the 25th anni logo has all the other ones in it... that's pretty cool~! :D

Fav female is gonna be an interesting one.  Usually demonstrates what Japan likes in women compared to NA a bit (in saying that, I think Yuna might rank quite high).
