Cid and the Polom/Parom duet. Yang a little less. Though I consider all of them rather useless in battle.

I Pretty much liked everyone except Cid. To Me, he seemed really useless and was a waste to have him in my party. But Other than That, All the characters are my favorite. tongue.gif

The Dark Knight and the Dragoon are my two and probably only favorites from FF4. Single, they're weak.. But together, they're unstoppable. :cool:

I don't think about it being funny at all. I seriously cried when that happened.

So you haven't noticed that ever since FF2NES there was a Cid in the game?

My favourite characters are by far Edge and Rydia. The "selectively inbred" womanizer with a vengance and the summoner girl that has the power, motivation (and enough foul language to make him shut up tongue.gif)..
In battle they are the damage dealer and the offensive caster, respectively.
And they're the cutest couple heart.gif thumbup.gif

Close behind is Cid with his one-liners and Kain with being a Dragoon.

I like edge personally, he was a well balanced character. A thief that can equip swords and do ninja type moves. Plus he can use some good magical spells. All and all they i think he's the best.

I have no clue if you were just kidding about that or not, but he IS my favorite all time character. Once he gets Apollo's Harp he can do straight nines to undead and around 1000-2500 base damage.

I liked Cecil and Edward (not joking!) the best. I liked how conflicted Cecil was (and it doesn't hurt that his hair's SOPRETTY *_*) and as for Edward... well, what can I say? I've got a weakness for the fragile type. heart.gif

Kain Highwind for the win! I feel bad how he was being used by Golbez throughout the game (even though his emotions were partly to blame for the incidents). I also love his dragoon armour. wub.gif

I am joking; I like Cecil best.

I didn't dislike Edward, though, even though I find him comically incompetent.

I prefer Paladin Cecil to be honest, I thought he was more useful and cooler. thumbup.gif

*sits in the corner and emos* Actually, I agree that he's useless in battle.

You see, the first time I played FFIV, I was all excited that he knew a recovery move... UNTIL I NOTICED THAT I WAS OUT OF POTIONS WTF. D:< Right when I needed one, too.

But I still like him outside of battle.

It's almost cliche' to say Kain, but he is my favorite. Cecil was a good character, but after his big transformation into a paladin fairly early on in the story, his storyline was pretty much over for me. Now Kain, as a playable fighter and as a character was something that I could really appreciate. When he's present, all fights are easier. You really miss him when he's gone. His story is also excellent. Just a well thought out addition to the game, all around.

*sigh* So difficult for me. This is based off the original SNES release titled Final Fantasy II.

If Kain had ever gotten over Rosa...maybe. Heck of a fighter, and wonderful to have in battle. But at the end, he can't even attend their wedding because he hasn't moved on.

Edge? Too much the arrogant playboy flirt. The personality type has always rubbed me the wrong way. Pity, since a twin sword fighter with the ability to steal is also a very nice thing to have in the party.

Cecil? Almost. Strong warrior, with a take the hit for a teammate ability that I really like. A dash of white magic that is also nice. But I have to go with...

Rydia. Good destructive magic, and a somewhat random healing summon late in the game. Saves the party from doom a couple of times, and is only saved once when the Baron soldiers show up early in the game. Very strong for all that she went through.

No, his name was "Edward Geraldine," which makes "Edge"! I wish I could do that with my first and middle names, but all I get is Laka. Actually, I guess that's pretty cool.

hey this is kinda off topic, but are all the items for throwing in later final fantasy games (ex. fire edge or whatever) named for Edge in final fantasy 4?

I always thought it was EDward GEraldine, hence edge.

pretty offtopic, but hey...

As for my favourite character, I wouldn't have managed to beat the game without Rosa, white mages are a must, but Kain is really the strongest ;p a minor damage immunity and straight nines for the win. He had the coolest outfit and personal story aswell.

In general, Edge and Yang are my favorites, since ninjas and monks are my favorite classes overall

I definately loved Cecil and Kain most however, since they had the most internal issues going on, with kain fighting his jealousy of Cecil and his issues around never being as strong as him.

Cecil had the whole issue around whether to obey the king or fight for justice thing going on and i dug that!
