Popular Characters in Final Fantasy
Most of us grew up playing different online games that we have already come to love. But no other program could probably measure up to the success of the Final Fantasy series. Since its debut on December 18, 1987 in Japan, it has already enjoyed a stellar popularity with its realistic animations and high quality sound effects. Here is a list of some of the most famous FF characters that have been a favourite both in the virtual and real worlds.
Balthier or Barufurea in the original Japanese version is a 22-year old protagonist in the 12th instalment of the series. Designed by Akihiko Yoshida, he is a sky pirate gunslinger who claims to be the real hero of the story. Using his wit and sharp looks, he often upstages his cast members and he is also known to deliver great dialogues.
This beautiful protagonist was designed by Tetsuya Nomura and is voiced in English by Hedy Burress and in Japanese by Mayuko Aoki. Yuna seeks to follow his father’s footsteps by becoming a High Summoner herself. Her good looks may have made her very popular, but it was only until her lead role in X-2 that she really came to her own. Today, you can already buy her action figure through FINAL FANTASY X.
Aerith or Aeris is a 22-year old member of Avalanche. She is voiced by Maaya Sakamoto in the Kingdom Hearts series and actress Mandy Moore on the English version of the same title. She may not have stayed for long but her departure was one of the biggest scenes for both fans and critics.
With his signature spiky blonde hair and Buster Sword, Cloud Strife is probably the most famous hero in the entire sequel. He was created by Tetsuya Nomura and is dubbed by Takahiro Sakurai and Steve Burton in Japanese and English respectively.
Whoever your all-time favourite was, you will surely agree that life would be so much different if this game was not introduced to the world.
