View Full Version : Which ff6 character is the best

08-19-2003, 06:32 AM
Which character in ff6 is the best if all of them had all the special abilities like cyan had all the sword techniques and edgar had all the tools which would be the best?

08-23-2003, 10:39 PM
Cyan is technical in swords & also edgar's brother Sabin as well.

08-29-2003, 07:18 PM
My choice is Cyan. I really liked his story and his manner and he had an awesome theme as well. And of course his abilties in battle.

sabin. get fire dance early on and not much trouble will follow.

08-30-2003, 03:56 AM
There are too many... How could I possibly choose only one?
I really love Locke, and Edgar, and Terra and Celes. Because of their personalities, because of their fighting techniques and because of the fun it means to watch them interact.

Hmm... Locke, our favourite thief... treasure hunter... So nice and helpful.

You can't really determine who's the best until around the ending when you can have the genji glove and the illumina and all that stuff. That definitely makes someone the most powerful.

i would have to go with terra. i thought that she was the best well-rounded character. yeah, her personality stinks, but she has green hair and neat sci-fi clothes! well, not in the psx movie scenes, but as a sprite.

but seriously, she is a great magic user and has decent strength and everything. she can also get stuck in "morph" mode, which is kEwL.

y cant we post pics in every thread?

Mine is either Terra or Sabin

Terra: For her kick ass magic abilities
Sabin: For his kick ass physical ablilities

My favourite FFVI character, would have to be Edgar. Why? His tools ability. At the beginning, the Autocrossbow is the best, and even later on in the game, it can still help you out of some rather 'sticky' situations. Then, the 'Drill'. If an enemy has a barrier or shield in effect and the other characters can't inflict damage on it, send Edgar in and use the 'Drill'! It dishes out serious damage, negating shield and barrier effects. Next, his chainsaw ability. Heh, carve through the enemy with ease. There are even times, when Edgar dons a Hockey mask, and inflicts double damage with the chainsaw on one enemy. Heh, especially good on bosses. And finally... the AIR ANCHOR! I think this phrase some it up the best... BANG! Your dead!

Also, my other fav FFVI character is, Gogo. Have Edgar in the party with Gogo, and have him 'mimic' Edgar's attack. Imagine the damage potential, from not one, but TWO Air Anchor attacks! HAH! Awesome damage potential.

They're my two FFVI favs. I mean, I like the whole cast, but these two stand out.

I've always been partial to Relm. She's not the most powerful one of the bunch, but I have a lot of fun with the Contol command.

11-12-2003, 09:28 PM
The Best character, as far as abilities, is Gogo. He can have Blitz, swordtech, throw, steal, fight, magic (which he doesn't have to have the Espers to learn) Runic, tools, and everything that everyone else can have.

( most ppl don't get him )

But for personality and everthing else: Sabin!!

11-13-2003, 06:48 AM
Celes was always my favorite. Runic was just such an awesome ability, and I really liked her role in the game... plus her theme music was pretty cool too :D .

Exaclty, especially when you get Bum Rush later...

Anyway, Celes was my favorite character, I loved the Runic technique, and she is a very well rounded character stats wise, as she can inflict physical damage with sword and the like, she has great magic-attack, and her defense is great a well... (even without the Esper bonuses effecting your stats).

12-09-2003, 09:39 AM
His abilities are perfect *does a rumbush*.
He has a lot of HP, compared to the other characters and a better sense of humor.

12-18-2003, 07:00 AM
Cyan is deffinately my favorite character, he's a powerhouse early on but once you get a genji glove his swordtech abilities become pretty useless.

Terra is probably the best overall (not including Gogo because mimes are not real characters, mimes do not exist, stupid white faces), she has really great magic abilities and when equiped with the right weapon she can do some serious damage. Plus her morph ability which pretty much doubles the damage she inflicts.

12-18-2003, 08:26 AM
I thimk Edgar was the best. The Tools rocked, and he was a really great character, too. So, yesh.

12-29-2003, 03:51 PM
Mog has always been my favorite.

That, and Setzer. I seem to get lucky with the slots! It's great watching the monsters eat up the enemies.

Probably inspired my gambling habit, too!

This was a generalization. Mog as in white and snuggly. You're Hanh. The characteristics do not apply!

Kidding! You're a nice heroine too! *huggz*

01-02-2004, 02:54 AM
Setzer... By Far... Its Scary When You Turn On A Videogame And You Feel Like Your Lookin In A Mirror... Setzer's Personality Sums Me up In A Nutshell... Gambler... Drinker... Fancier Of Opera Singers... Mweh!

That And Genji Glove Offering Dice Fixed Dice Is the Best Easiest Way Of Doing The Most Damage.... My Setzer had Luck Up The Yazoo And Wouldnt Hardly Ever Roll Below A Four...

Bow to Setzer!!!

I think Locke is the best. How he gets into those house for you in Narshe, and I just think he's cool . .. ^^ ; ;

01-09-2004, 07:07 AM
Its all about Gogo, he litterally is the best character.
I like shadow too but not so much as abilities

03-16-2004, 09:06 AM
Locke he can steal he's the best thief........i mean treasure hunter............in final fantasy.

03-16-2004, 05:02 PM
Sabin, because once he learns BumRush, he is nearly unstoppable.

03-17-2004, 11:48 AM
My favorite character in terms of personality and storyline is Terra Branford. I connected with her more completely then I ever have with any character in any game.

In terms of straight up abilities.......Gogo. It's like Blood Warrior said- all these characters have all these kick-ass abilities, and you can have Gogo use any of them.

Besides, everyone knows Gogo is really Darryl in disguise. ;)

03-17-2004, 12:57 PM
either one of the Brothers Figaro, can't really decide which.

03-21-2004, 05:03 AM
The best, I think, was KEFKA because he's EVIL!!! Mwaa haa haa! Hmm, any way, listen to his theme tune to remind you of his greatness and his brilliant if ever so slightly easy last battle!

the best fighter in the whole game is Sabin. Like everyone says his Fire Dance and Bum Rush are great! But his Air Blade attack is the best throughout the entier game. Shadow is cool too but not as cool as Sabin. And I think Gau is the most USLESS person in the game. Come on you can only atack 1x thhen he goes all hyper, wasted on crack, uncontrolable for the rest of the fight. Setzer is cool because he has the Airship but his Slots comand SUCKS! Exspecialy when he does the "Instant Death" move thing.
Not to sure about GoGo never go him.

03-27-2004, 11:38 PM
Meh, there is no real "best" character, besides Gogo, who has no storyline so s/he doesn't count.
However, my party uses Mog (x-magic, maxing Magic power), Sabin (maxing Speed, fast = more Bum Rushing), and Edgar (Genji Glove + Offering +max Vigor), and Gogo (magic, occasional tools, BRush)

Of course, this is my second time through the game, the first time I had never cast Vanish once :x (nor do I abuse Vanish/Doom >.>) or ran around with the Moogle Charm on.

Bah, who am I kidding. Mog is the best character. S/He makes the game insanely easy... Tower of Fanatics beating you down? No problem, Moogle Charm and only fight two battles (the dragon and the Magi Master). Random battles dragging you down? Moogle Charm. Not to mention s/he is so amazingly cute!

05-29-2004, 06:09 PM
edgar's chainsaw is awesome... u can go up against a cactrot 10spell points and 10,000 gold a piece and wipe him out with a very high percentage

terra/celes got magic covered

mog is just the coolest

but gogo is one of the best cuz u can customize him to ur likings so u make a decision

I like Terra and Celes:angel:! They're a good Duo!

06-14-2004, 06:48 PM
sabin is the man as he kicks in everything but gogo thes best uh he can do everything

06-19-2004, 08:59 PM
i like terra and sabin cause they kick ass :D and terra can morph into that cool thing and sabin yes i'll say it again kick ass and i mean it .

Dot Centaur
06-19-2004, 09:26 PM
Yeah, it's cool that Terra can morph into her Esper form! Espers are the summons in that game, and it's cool that Terra's an Esper herself.

06-21-2004, 09:39 PM
If you count him.. KEFKA PWNZ J00 ALL!

otherwise, I'd say Locke.

06-22-2004, 04:03 PM
I hate Kefka. His laugh annoyed the crap outta me.

06-22-2004, 11:59 PM
my sister is scared of him

06-24-2004, 07:02 AM
It's a toss up between Kefka and Terra

I'll have to say...

Best playable character: Terra

Best FF villian: Kefka

there! sorted that out!

No the best FF villian is Sephiroth! The best FF6 character is Terra!

Does anyone else things his laugh sounds like Zoidburg from Futurama?

Whoop whoop whoop...

I'm only part way through but my fav characters so far are Cyan and Gau. Gau's Templer Rage has been quite useful so far since it's lets you cast Fire2 on all enemies really early on.
Celes seems to kick ass though, which makes a change from the usual FF girls (Aeris, Rinoa... eurgh)

07-16-2004, 03:52 AM
My favorite charicter is probably Terra. She was just always so wierdly awsome. Either her or Shadow. I loved how you could see Shadow's past in the dreams. Awsome effect


"You spoony bard!"

05-30-2009, 04:15 AM
Definitely has to be Terra, without Terra the story of FF6 would not exist to begin with.

05-30-2009, 06:52 PM
I liked terra cuz shes kick ass when it comes to magice. Sabin cuz his bum/phantom rush pwns. Mog is pretty cool...expecially when u equip with moogle/molulu's charm meaning no monster encounters. This was sooo useful in Fanatics' tower hehhe. Also Gogo is pretty cool as he can have any ability u want...and he doesnt even need to learn magic which is pretty cool. Just make sure hes not in a bad party when you go to place that requires u to split ur party up...

05-30-2009, 06:53 PM
Holy necrofication.
