(S)He has a nose...

Well, let's be real. He was always a little effeminate.

YOU SHUT YOUR FILTHY LYING MOUTH!!!! RAMZA WAS THE MANLIEST OF MEN WHILST PLAYING THE REED FLUTE WITH HIS BROTHER FROM ANOTHER MOTHER DELITA, AND HIS RIGHT HOOK TO ALGUS/ARGUS (depends on which version you rocked) WAS A DOMINATING DISPLAY OF DUDELINESS!!!!

Seriously, Ramza was like one of my favorite FF characters for just how normal he was. No super powers, no divine intervention. Homeboy dropped everything to fight for what he believed in. Much respect to his character...

Now he looks like he could front a k-pop all girl's band.

Know what? I hope it's Alma just pretending to be her brother...

It really helped that most everyone kinda had that look going which evened out the gender appearances/differences, and made the differences reliant on the more subtle differences in dress and facial features (which is a lot closer to how things are to begin with).

That said, I still like the fact that while Ramza did end up as a 'Chosen One' hero in the end, it wasn't due to his famous father. A nice reversal on the 'Heroic Father, Royal Mother' cliché that often pervades JRPG protagonists.

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I think the important thing here is that we have Ramza.  We have Ramza in another video game.  New ground has been broken.

Old ground you mean, as he was in the Lords of Vermilion games along with Agrias, and also Theatrythym 2: Curtain Call (along with fucking Benjamin of Mystic Quest fame, among other characters).

I thought when I said "another video game" that it was implied that I meant "REAL video game".  He was in Heavenstrike Rivals, too, but who the heck cares about F2P/deckbuilder/rhythm games?

Manly flute playing at around 2:40: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iijKLHCQw5o

And few RPG characters get more effeminate to me than Azel in Magna Carta, who looks exactly like a girl I dated once.  http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/magnacarta/images/7/7f/5092-1762945332.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20140414133212
You can brag about your 5000+ friends on social media all you want, but riddle me this: how many of them would help you move?

^ The only way that I can tell that that's a guy is that he's from Magna Carta and doesn't have boobs the size of his head.  Other than that, everything else about that pic says "female" to me.

I was also initially fooled because the last video game character named Azel I'd heard of was Azel from Panzer Dragoon Saga, who was a girl.

So back to Final Fantasy.  We can't talk womanly men without Kuja now can we?

Chill Dincrest, Kuja had dat swagger...just cuz he wore a dress didn't mean he was girly. He was just too awesome for pants.

And I'm not dissing on Kuja at all.  Dude was a fantastic villain and one of the more underrated characters in FF.  All I was saying was that if we're having a pretty boy party, we can't have one without inviting the best pretty boy of them all- Kuja.  Not inviting Kuja to the pretty boy fest would be like a guitar fest without Joe Satriani.  

(and I still think FF9 should have ended like this: http://mooncalf.org/library/parody/eikosboyfriend.html)

Yeah. If anything, Kuja doesn't even rate compared to the many pretty boys of Amano, the undisputed king of drawing pretty boys. Seriously, go look at Cecil or Locke or Yuna.

Kuja's too sexy for this thread, too sexy for this thread... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=P5mtclwloEQ

And like I said earlier, I think Kuja is one of the most underrated FF characters and a fantastic villain.  I'd say he's one of the top 5 villains of the series.

Anyway, I never found Amano's extreme heroin-chic art style pretty at all.  Everyone looked sickly and emaciated.

Got Final Fantasy Explorers today. I'm into it so far and have been playing with a few friends.

Anyone else get this? If so, what do you think?

What are your thoughts Isjaki, I was thinking of ordering the game but I'm not sure how well it would work as a single player. The wifi on my 3ds is buggy at best so co-op play would be more trouble than fun. Anyone else played it yet?
