    The Official Final Fantasy IX Rumble

    Here's the list of battles and take note that we'll begin by the bottom. No special reason, other than I feel like it.

    Alexandria vs Lindblum
    Black Mage Village vs Gargan Roo
    Burmecia vs Cleyra
    Chocobo's Forest vs Desert Palace
    Dali vs Conde Petie
    Esto Gaza vs Chocobo's Paradise
    Terra vs Gaia
    Fire Shrine vs Earth Shrine
    Fossil Roo vs Evil Forest
    Gizamaluke's Grotto vs Chocobo's Lagoon
    Ipsen's Castle vs Ice Cavern
    Madain Sari vs Daguerreo
    Memoria vs Oeilvert
    Mognet Central vs Pandemonium
    Qwan's Dwelling vs Iifa Tree
    Qu's Marsh vs Pinnacle Rocks
    South Gate vs North Gate
    Water Shrine vs Wind Shrine
    Mount Gulug vs The Crystal World
    Bran Bal vs Treno


    Bran Bal - The only Terran city we get to visit in the game, Bran Bal's main feature is a laboratory used to grow Genomes as vessels for Terran inhabitants. Zidane most likely comes from Bran Bal.

    Treno - Reknowned for its arquitecture, Treno is the home of many Gaian nobles. Unfortunately, it's also home to countless criminals and a major part of the city is actually a slum. Main features include: an auction house, Doctor Tot's house on the edge of town and the river that runs below and through the city.

    Don't forget the massive salt-lick.


    But my vote goes to Treno. Musics way better and you get a lot more stuff there (examples: Awards from the Stellazzio, Awards from defeating the beasts in the Knights House/Weapon Shop, Auction House, Card Stadium(esp. in disc 4) and so on)

    Bran Bal. Treno was really cool too, especially in terms of stuff to do, but the design of BB was just brilliant. Plus I sort of spent too much time in Treno doing auctions and stuff, and that music gets quite annoying eventually.

    It could be one of the vital ingredients to create KH2 Sea Salt Ice Cream.

    Bran Bal

    The feeling around Bran Bal gave me that really bizzare environment feeling as well as the place being quite unique to people who see the general type of FF town with the same shops along with a few differences.

    [Bran Bal. God they're both awesome, but Bran Bal feels like a natural warless home without the pain or confusion of a city.

    Bran Bal. Both are good but I found Treno a bit depressing.

    Bran Bal, I love everything about that place, even though Treno has its interactive points.

    Treno (9) eliminates Bran Bal (7) in a close battle.

    Mount Gulug - Former home of the Mole race, Mount Gulug serves little purpose other than being the place where Kuja attempts to extract Eiko's eidolons and where Mog reveals herself to actually be Madeen. Hilda Garde isalso imprisoned there.

    Crystal World
    - Inside Memoria, the party enters the Crystal and has to traverse a small distance in order to reach Kuja. As expected, everything is crystalized, even the enemies.

    Mount Gulug

    I don't remember much of mount gulug but I didn't like fighting the monsters in the crystal world. Since they all looked like crystalized versions of the bosses in memoria, I thought they would be hard so I just always ran away.

    Mount Gulug, it had awesome music and a nice FF III reference

    Trance Moogle, not only that, they gave you only 1 EXP and 1 AP as far as I remember

    They give you no EXP like with most bosses and they give you 10 AP if my memory serves me correct.
