First, I have to apologize for missing the last Final Fantasy Friday. Circumstances out of my control made it so that I wasn’t home in order to make the post. It was kind of a bloodbath, but I did emerge victorious. I’m not giving up a series about my favorite game franchise, so never worry about that.
With that out of the way, I have been trying to do “easier” questions, as in ones that won’t take me too much time to answer, because there is a ton going on. I have more complex/detailed questions to put out, but for now, I’m going to stick with the single answer ones. With that…
Who is your least favorite character in your favorite game?
Ugh, Yuffie. I cannot fucking stand her lol.
I’m at least nice enough to provide a cute fanart of her :p
Squeenix took all aspects of the annoying kid/teenager motif and rolled them into one character. She inconvenienced you by stealing your materia; she’s obnoxious; and she’s literally a fucking princess. The last one doesn’t necessarily make a character annoying (I love Princess Garnet…both the FFIX character and my sassy, little kitty), but it adds to the stereotype of spoiled royalty. Ironically though, I don’t hate the Yuffentine pairing (Yuffie X Vincent), which you’d think I would because Vincent is my second favorite character after Sephiroth so I’d want him to shack up with someone good since, well, Lucrecia is out of the picture *sob*, but they were paired together perfectly in my favorite fanfiction Slumbering Mountains, and their opposing traits worked out very well. The author is also extremely talented and managed to mitigate Yuffie’s more irritating qualities.
I wonder if I just have this problem with ninja characters, because Edge from FFIV is a very close second in my dislike. Neither him nor Yuffie are overly competent fighters either, so not even battle prowess makes up for their personality flaws. Thank Gaia the ninja class has Shadow from VI, am I right? Of course, Shadow also has a dog, so even if he wasn’t an interesting bad ass, that fact alone would elevate him over a hundred.
What character would you oust from the game you most love? What about them grinds your gears or dampens your airship sails? Let’s have a friendly bitchfest in the comments!
