Spoilers for FF4
look guys, FF4 was full of heroic sacrifices in which no one actually dies. Except god hates Tellah's family, it's the only explanation as they are the only ones to experience perma-death in that game. One guy jumps out of an airship with bombs strapped to him, one guy locks himself in an exploding room and two turn themselves into statues and THEY ALL LIVE, all Tellah did was cast some black magic that didn't even work. He's the Chiaotzu of that game. Even Golbez gets to live and return as a good guy in the sequel.
