    The Official Final Fantasy VI Rumble

    With the blessing of Agent I will now start with a rumble dedicated to Final Fantasy VI (in US-version Final Fantasy III, heh).
    Due to the fact the topic music is already in a few rumbles ongoing, I thought I would start out with something little easier to overview, and chose as first topic Espers, the summons of FFVI.
    My first attempt of rumbling will include 24 competitors out of the 27 Espers.
    I removed Bahamut and Unicorn completely, seeing as Bahamut is fanboyed at and Unicorn is only a bit different to Kirin and Seraphim. The third removal is fusing Odin and Raiden into one entry, seeing as their attacks are pretty much the same and Raiden replaces Odin.
    I will let the Espers fight in 3 brackets, and in the final round the three bracket winners will fight in a "free for all" round to find out whom of the three is the winner.
    After this rumble we can think of another one. ^^

    Oh, a few important informations:
    1.) The encounters in the first rounds are determined randomly.
    2.) Please set your vote in bold, so I can see it.
    3.) I will update every 3-4 days.


    Winners of Past Rumbles:
    Espers
    1. Maduin
    2. Phoenix
    3. Alexander

    Locations
    1. Opera House
    2. Phantom Train

    Bosses
    1. Kefka
    2. Ultros

    Music
    1. Terra's Theme
    2. Cyan's Theme

    ______


    Alright, enough rambling... let's get this started with the first round!

    Bracket 1 - Fight 1

    Kirin
    , the Chinese "unicorn". He casts Regen on all party members and teaches a few good spells, such as Cure 2 and Scan. In China, Kirins are said to bring luck. Maybe that luck will help him to win this round!

    vs.

    Tritoch
    , one of the strongest Espers you recieve in this game. He attacks with the Tri-Dazer, an attack of all three elements, and teaches the user the strongest elemental spells in the game: Fire 3, Ice 3 and Bolt 3.

    My vote goes to Tritoch, simply because he looks beautiful and his power is way stronger than Kirin ever could dream of.

    Thanks to Kneg for letting me know about this!

    I'm going to have to go with Tritoch as well. I remember how excited I was when I first got him and saw the spells I could learn.

    Glad we got this going. I'm going Kirin. I think it was one of the few summons from this game I actually used sometimes, plus I liked the spells that it taught.

    I always try to use Regen the most in FF games, so Kirin


    Good luck with the rumble Skunk!

    Tritoch. It's a PITA to take on, but you can't dismiss the strength of Thundaga/Lit3

    Well, let's put this to an end!

    Kirin - 4

    Tritoch - 7

    After the head to head race Tritoch reserved the victory for this round and therefore proceeds! So, let's take a look at the first bracket 2 fight.

    Bracket 2 - Fight 1

    Ramuh
    , one of the regulars in the pantheon of summons in Final Fantasy. This old wise man is the king of thunder, summoning the attack Bolt Fist. He also teaches the lower two Bolt-spells and Poison (however he got to that).

    vs.

    Seraphim
    , the beautiful angel. She casts Reviver, an HP recovery for all party members, and teaches useful White Magic, such as Life, Remedy and Cure 2.

    FIGHT!!

    My vote goes to Seraphim, because her healing spells saved me a lot, and her summon skill is far more useful than Ramuh's thunder attack.

    No problem, Ndi ^_^

    Thank you for running this, Skunk!

    Seraphim. See above stated reason.

    Even though I like Ramuh a lot more than Seraphim, I am going to have to go with Seraphim because the healing magic she taught saved my ass more times than I can count.

    Yeah, Seraphim. Ramuh is cool, but this game's Ramuh didn't stand out for me.

    Seraphim. I agree with Agent that Ramuh's been better in other games.

    A FF VI rumble !_! grand!

    Ramuh. I don't recall using Seraphim a lot, probably 'cause I got better curing magic by the time I got her.

    Oh well... I think we can put this to an end.

    Ramuh - 3
    Seraphim - 8

    Clear victory for our angel, so she will move on to the next round! Allow me to use sprites for the Espers now, making it maybe a bit easier to pick.

    Bracket 3 - Fight 1


    Siren
    , the beautiful singer. In FF6, Siren casts Sleep on all enemies and hands several status changing spells such as Sleep (who would've guessed!), Mute and Slow, as well as Fire 1 (whyever she as a water creature has this...).

    vs.


    Alexander
    , who made his debut as summon in this game. He casts Justice on the enemies, which does heavy Holy damage, and teaches very useful spells such as Safe, Shell and Dispel, but also he's the only one to be able to give you the Black Magic called "Pearl", the only Black Magic which does Holy damage - and has a beautiful animation, too!

    My vote in this round goes to Alexander, because his spells simply are way better than Siren's - even though he doesn't give any Level Up bonus.

    Alexander not only because of the spells but also Alexander has a bigger badass factor
