Our Favourite Final Fantasy Heroes

Author: Rob

Final Fantasy is loved by so many gamers around the world. So we thought it would be a great idea to put a list together of our top heroes from the Final Fantasy franchise.

Cloud Strife

Final Fantasy Character - Cloud Strife

Possibly one of the most iconic Final Fantasy characters out there. Cloud is the main protagonist in the Final Fantasy VII saga. In Final Fantasy VII Cloud is former member of an elite warrior unit called SOLDIER. Now a mercenary, Cloud discovers that he is more than a highly skilled swordsman and will stop at nothing to protect those he loves. His is also the third wielder of the iconic Buster Sword.

Why is he our favourite? Well for a start he has amazing skill wielding the Buster Sword, so much so that Cloud’s Omnislash could accurately slice off the top of an egg from 100 miles.

Auron

Final Fantasy Character - Auron

A former Warrior monk of Yevon, Auron is possibly one of the most popular character in Final Fantasy X. Auron in many ways can be described as the mentor of the group and when it comes to battle his skill with the sword cannot be matched.

Squall Leonhart

Final Fantasy Character - Squall Leonhart

The main protagonist in Final Fantasy VIII, Squall is a mercenary of the elite mercenary force known as SeeD. On the face of it Squall is a cold and focussed character, it is not until the story of Final Fantasy VIII progresses that Squall starts to question how he lives his life. He also wields the iconic Gunblade, which is an amalgamation of both gun and sword.

Basch fon Ronsenburg

Final Fantasy Character - Basch Fon Ronsenburg

Basch is one of the playable party member in Final Fantasy XII. A highly skilled swordsman, Basch is a disgraced knight who was prosecuted for murdering King Raminas B'nargin Dalmasca. Basch was in fact framed for the assassination as his story unfolds throughout Final Fantasy XII.

Zack Fair

Final Fantasy Character - Zack Fair

Before Cloud, Zack was the main Protagonist in Crisis Core - Final Fantasy VII which is the prequel to Final Fantasy VII. Zack is the second wielder of the Buster Sword and an elite warrior in the SOLDIER unit. Zack was Cloud’s Best friend before the events of Final Fantasy VII. Cloud would not be where he is today if it wasn’t for Zack.

LuLu

Final Fantasy Character - Lulu

One of the guardians of the summoner Yuna, Luu is adept in the magical arts. Lulu uses various dolls in order to help her cast her black magic spells and if leveled correctly can be one of the most powerful character in your Final Fantasy X party. She has a self-possessed nature but underneath it all she is gentle and caring sole.

Vivi Ornitier

Final Fantasy Character - Vivi Ornitier

Vivi is a playable character in Final Fantasy IX as is styled after the original Black Mage in Final Fantasy I. Vivi is not like many humans as he has a black aura surrounding his visible outer skin. Much like Lulu from Final Fantasy X Vivi specialises in Black Magic, however he can be clumsy, shy and gullible which sometimes plays to his disadvantage.

Tifa Lockhart

Final Fantasy Character - Tifa Lockhart

Tifa is a playable character in Final Fantasy VII and plays a support role to the main protagonist Cloud. Tifa and Cloud are childhood friends who lost contact some years ago before the events of Final Fantasy VII. It doesn’t take Cloud much time to convince her to join his cause and fight the evil Shinra Electric Power Company.

Terra Branford

Final Fantasy Character - Terra Brandford

Terra is a key character and party member in FInal Fantasy VI. She has several unique abilities that help her in the war between the Gestahlian Empire and the rebel factions. She has a high magic skill and, as she is part Esper, is able to transform her Esper form which increases her stats.

Prompto Argentum

Final Fantasy Character - Prompto Argentum

One of Prince Noctis’ companions in Final Fantasy XV, Prompto is the happy go lucky member of the team. He has amazing skill when it comes to firearms. He also has great skill when it comes to taking photos. In our opinion, every game should have a Prompto.
