One of the best things about the great narrative universes is to draw up rankings of all kinds, and Final Fantasy is such a dense universe that generate all kinds of curiosities.
Such as determining which are the strongest characters , something that has always happened with Marvel heroes for example, and which is interesting to try to do with Final Fantasy .
In the past, fans had already wondered which was the best character in the saga, but only from a character, aesthetic and narrative point of view.
A ranking, the one we found , to which sooner or later the protagonist of Final Fantasy XVI will also be added , when it’s out.
The big moment of disclosure and sharing, in which fans confronted themselves to understand who is the strongest protagonist character of Final Fantasy , took place on Reddit.
One might expect that in the first place there are also the most beloved heroes such as Cloud, Squall or Tidus , from the related episodes which are among other things the loved ones, or a historical outsider from the past like Earth .
Instead, even with a certain unanimity, the strongest character in Final Fantasy according to fans is Lightning , from the hated Lightning Returns – Final Fantasy XIII .
The motivations expressed by fans on the thread are essentially linked to the powers and role within the story that Square Enix has relegated to Lightning , showing her as a character so powerful and central to be the strongest of all.
Faced with the unanimity of the participants of the post, there is also who wanted to jump into a top 10 , namely the following:
- Cloud / Cecil
- Shantotto / Warrior of Light
- Bartz / Onion Knight
A real surprise then, where a historical title like Final Fantasy VI has not been taken into consideration (but the fans think about it ).
Among the characters there are also those of FFXIV , which just recently set a new record and is one of the best episodes of the series.
Cloud fans, on the other hand, will be able to console themselves with a special Final Fantasy VII Remake concert to be held in Italy: here are the dates and tickets.
If Lightning is also your favorite, on Amazon you will find a beautiful plush that depicts her!
