Final Fantasy's Origins

Final Fantasy (FF) started in 1987 as a man's dream to create one last video game before his funding ran out. A surprise hit, the game influenced the creation of many sequels, taking us to several worlds and exploring many characters. Squaresoft, the company behind FF, has morphed into Square Enix, but continues to develop mystical adventures. Whether or not you've played the games, you can take our quiz to determine which character most suits you! I've attempted to take personalities from a plethora of different games in the series; hopefully you'll enjoy your result! And no worries, there aren't any major spoilers ahead.

About the Author

I've grown up playing the Final Fantasy series; I can hardly get enough of them! I've beaten most of the main games (the ones with numericals numbers, like Final Fantasy 8), and also experienced many of the spin-offs. FF 10 for the PlayStation 2 (or Playstation 3 if you play the remastered version) is my favorite game, and female protagonist Yuna from the same title remains my favorite character from any of the games.

Once you've determined your match, take a look at some artwork of the results, and listen to the characters' themes. Let's begin!

This table shows the meaning of each possible result:

Shadow

You are the ruthless ninja Shadow, hailing from Final Fantasy 6. You demand compensation for your services; some claim you'd slit your own mother's throat for a nickel. Still, you work to protect the planet. You keep your age to yourself, and come and go as you please. In battle, you are a formidable fighter, wielding knives and daggers. Your only true companion, the dog Interceptor, aids in you in vanquishing monsters. You've even got your own Western-reminiscent theme (See link below).

Tifa Lockhart

You have faced the death of loved ones, being rejected by the one you love, and owning your own business. And despite your struggles, you have developed into a powerful combatant (using nothing but your own fists) and loyal friend. With time, you know you can find happiness. You've also got your own relaxing theme. (See link below).

Squall Leonhart

Auron

You are the mysterious Auron, encountered in Final Fantasy 10. Who you are and what you've done aren't entirely known, but you are hailed as a legendary warrior. You help defend the world against evil, and you know many answers that your companions seek. However, you choose to reveal only what they need to hear, deciding to let them discover the truth themselves. You may seem apathetic, but you simply care in your own way. You are a dedicated friend, mentor, and ally. Your theme reflects your enigmatic nature (See link below).

Sazh Katzroy
