Some of you showed some interest in my site (after it had been taken down). Rather than dredge up the old thread I posted this message.

It is up again.

I know it's dumb to advertise your own site, so sorry.

Seems simple enough, until you realize that Final Fantasy 3 is actually the sixth game in the Final Fantasy series. So technically it should be called Final Fantasy 6. Suffice to say it was released in the US and Europe as Final Fantasy 3 (FF3).
(from your website)

As far as I'm aware, Europe took all six of the starting six games in order. It's only FF3 in America. The game on the SNES here is called Final Fantasy Six, as far as I'm aware.

That's not quite accurate. There is NO SNES FF6 in Europe. Europe took NONE of the first six FF games in ANY order. The first FF to make it here was FF7. FF6 was finally released in its PSX form (but sans FF5, which joined FF4 in Final Fantasy Anthology European Edition) in Europe in 2002. Final Fantasy Origins was released here before it was in North America, bizarrely, but that doesn't make up for NES FF1 never getting here to begin with.

It is true to say, though, that no FF games have been renumbered in Europe.

Anyway, many thanks for debunking that one. I'm sure that link will get stuffed into countless duplicate "Gogo is Adlai Stevenson!!!" threads in the future. smile.gif

Let's see, there are several possibilities of who Gogo is.

Daryl: Plane crashed on Triangular Island. Was abducted by a zone eater.
Adlai Stevenson: No, Adlai Stevenson is too tall to be Gogo. gogo is only 5'5
Banon: No, Bannon is Duncan
A great mime: No mime could ever be as good as Gogo.
Esper: Gogo has the mimic ability. He could be an esper.
Gestahl: Gestahl landed on triangular island after getting hurt by Kefka
Gogo from FF5: I think that Gogo was the name of a monster. There could be several Gogo's. Plus Final Fantasy 5 took place hundreds of years ago then Final Fantasy 6. Plus there is a Gogo in Final Fantasy 9.
Leo: Leo is too tall to have been Gogo. besides Gogo was buried in Thamasa.
Arvis: Gogo could have been Arvis.
One of the 4 warriors of Dawn: I doubt they would conceal thir identities just to become a mime. Wasn't them.
gogo: It is probable that Gogo was Gogo.

Too funny. This reminds me a bit of "The Crying of Lot 49" which I just read.

The end result is that it's an utterly intriguing and coherent conspiracy theory that has absolutely no real evidence whatsoever. I almost wish those quotes were real just because it was so funny... but yeah, Gogo is just Gogo.

P.S. By the way, has anyone ever thought that Gogo would be a great character for an FF6 prequel about the war of the magi?

Maybe it's true that Gogo is Adlai Stevenson. We don't know what's going on in the programmers' head.

But everyone knows that Gogo is really the true Kefka. We all know that this gentleman is able to make illusions. It's not Kefka that we fight in his tower but a simple illusion of himself. If you don't believe me, look at their clothes, same colors. After the beginning of the end of the world, Kefka fell on the Triangle Island and been sucked by a Zone Eater. He killed every simulacrum and transformed the mimics' cave into his headquarter. But when the heroes found him, he no longer needed to hide himself. He could control the tower from the airship.

Well, I don't know, but Banon and Gogo have the same pallete, and Banon and
Duncan have the same sprite, but I don't know what is Duncan's pallete.

I remember using Gameshark to replace Cyan with Leo, and his pallete was Cyan's.
Leo had a Blue costume and black hair, but he had his normal pallete in battle.

At least, that's what I think. I think Gogo is just an Easter Egg from Square, but
not anyone from the game. At first, I tought he was Banon, but he is not.
Banon and Arvis

Possible spoilers: highlight to view
are probably killed after the events in Vector, after Leo is killed and your party
comes to Thamasa to go to the Floating Continent, I think.

Bannon is Duncan, not only because of the same sprite, but the fact that we never see Duncan in the WOB, and Bannon in WOR. Plus, Duncan probably went up to Mt.Koltz, to head to the Returners, as a secret plot against Gestahl.
Gogo is not Kefka because we saw Gogo and Kefka in the same scene at the end.
Gogo is not Adlai, because the Adlai rumor was just made up by some geek whp had lots of time.
Gogo is Daryl, because there is a Setzer+Gogo scene hidden if you have collected all of Gau's rages, all of the espers, all of the lores, all of the items, all of the gold, and then go to the airship. you will then find Gogo talking to Setzer. This was confirmed by Square.
Plus in the Final Fantasy 6 soundtrack, Gogo's theme is in between Setzer's and Daryl's which means that it is quite likely to be Daryll.
Plus, the designers want to make it so that Gogo is all covered up. I have yet to see a trace of how Gogo really looks. The truth is Gogo=Daryl.

Here are some unusual Gogo theories. These aren't the common ones.
Gau's father: Gau's father was sad at Gau's death. Maybey he wanted to hide his emotions by dressing up as Gogo.
Cid: We never see Cid after the first WOR incident.
Rachel: It is quite possible that Rachel isn't dead yet. She may have survived the imperial assaults.
Zone Eater: It is possible that Gogo is another species of a zone eater.
gilgamesh: Is possible.
Post your own Gogo theories.

Ok, let's put these rumors to bed before they get started.

Gau's Father: If you have Gogo in your party, you can go see Gau's Father. People can't be in two places at once. False.

Cid: Cid either lives or dies depending on your actions....in either case, he remains on the island, and you can do the same thing as you did above. Not Cid.

Rachel...Geez, man, have you even played THROUGH the World of Ruin?

Zone Eater: W...T....F?

Gilgamesh: Hmm, never thought of that, I suppose it is possible.

My Gogo theory: Gogo is Gogo.

Leave Gogo alone the poor transexual can't help that he can't say wether he is a guy or a girl. I don't think he has any connection with any other characters in the game. He is just a secret character the everybody gets.

Eh..... I really hope that this is some sort of joke topic. I would really hate to think that someone could actually, in his or her right mind, think that ANY of those are possible theories... There is nothing to suggest ANY of those connections AT ALL.

Well... what about Aldai Stevenson? Just kidding.

Anyway, all of those ideas are bogus in my opinion also. Furthermore, the game gives no type of clue whatsoever so I don't think there's a point in guessing. The only idea I have about Gogo is that if Squenix makes a prequel, then Gogo could be one of the combatants in The War of the Magi (on the side of the magi, of course).

Oh, and Gligamesh, by the way, has four arms, so I don't think it'd make sense for Square to hide the extra two under his robe if they wanted that to be a possibility.

Gogo could be any character form FFV considering with the job system you can make anybody anything you want.

he/she just might be Faris since she has this thing about not letting anybody know what her gender is.

I agree with Connor or could we just say he/she is a cross over character from FFV who has no background. Cause the only way we could find out the truth is if we write Square and see if they could tells us. We could start signing a petiton that would make Square tell use Gogo's background and history. Whose in on the idea?

Let's go ahead and put this to rest, because we all know that Gogo is is Yuffie Kisagari from FFVII with a Mime materia on her bangle...and she just happened to lose her shuriken...and she lost her whole "I want to steal all your materia, although there is no such thing as materia in FFVI" attitude...and she decided for some strange reason to get lost in a cave and don a set of absolutely dreadful looking robes...and it's all bogus anyways cuz Gogo is just Gogo, although I do like the comparison someone made to Kefka. I'd like to think Gogo is related to Kefka in some way...a brother/sister/uncle/aunt/father/mother of some sort. Eh, probably not, but that's the thrill of it all, right?

IMHO Gogo is just Gogo. And although all the mystery of him is cool, some details about it would be nice, not even details but hints at a deeper story, perhaps if only to make you more interested in its character. The idea I really like is that he's a leftover combatant of the War of the Magi (although I'm playing FF5 right now so the Faris idea was amusing).

I am getting the increasing feeling that Gogo is just forced in by the makers just because someone suddenly said out of the blue: "Hey we've forgotten a Mimic character! Let's add in a mimic character!"
And hey presto, here comes Gogo-a person that has abosolutely NO connection whatsoever with the main storyline...unless of course you choose to see him to be someone else.
Anyway, I find it odd that no one has mentioned this point. Shivy, if you've finished the 1st part of FF5, you can get the "Mimic" job by going to some underwater castle and "defeating" the boss, who is-well whaddaya know-good old Gogo!!! He even looks, talks, acts and dresses somewhat the same, so...
On the other hand, it's sometimes not altogether possible to make cross-game connections in terms of the FF series. I mean, Cid appears in every game, but you can't say that Cid changes his appearance so often, and is related to Yuna, Rikku, Celes and all the rest.
In any case, however, I still stand by what I said at first. Gogo was just forced in. I may sound crude when I say this but it was just plain lazy and unnecessary for the game makers to put him in without ecen bothering to elaborate more. If Gogo was put in to create some mystery, gads...as Shivy said, then at least MAKE us interested first!!

Either Gogo is just some random character that the developers put into FFVI for fun, or a Zone Eater's belly is where the FFV Gogo ended up after that Gogo exiled himself to the Cleft of Dimension and then got pushed out of the CoD when the heroes defeated Exdeath and then ended up on Triangle Island but then got swallowed by a Zone Eater.

Comprende?

*Mario jumps off spinning child's head and falls flat onto the ground*

EDIT: Actually, I think the most likely known FFVI character that could be Gogo is Gestahl.
Possible spoilers: highlight to view
First, Gestahl wants revenge against Kefka for turning on him. Second, Gestahl, although wanting this, knows he can't do it himself, but also knows he can't let out his identity to the heroes if he wants to join them. Third, the fall from the floating continent has messed up his memory of magic spells, as well as his brain in general, so now he can only do stuff that he can observe other people doing, including magic spells. And the reason he can't equip magicite is because the espers still don't trust him. Although there is still the question of how he survived being kicked off the floating continent...

Hmmm, after reading this I realize that you never do figure out who Gogo is...
I always thought it was Daryl, I don't know how I missed that at first, but I must have recieved some subliminal message saying that it could be Daryl. I do remember triangle island looking a little bit like the island that Daryl had crashed into... I dunno
Just another wild theory I guess...
