Forums - Gaming Discussion - Japan ranks their favorite male characters from Final Fantasy

http://www.novacrystallis.com/?p=3887

The official Final Fantasy forums recently held a vote to determine the top male characters among users.

The results are in, with the top five having been through a rollercoaster race to the finish. Early on Zack and Cloud fought head to head, but Zack’s lead widened in the second half. At one point Cloud ran the risk of being outpaced by Zidane, who eventually passed both Tidus and Squall. After a fierce battle, the top five had finally assembled.

Beyond that are the remainder of the characters counted with a total of 73 names that made the cut. Those with duplicate rankings held the same amount of votes, and are thus counted as a tied ranking.

The next poll will focus on the female characters of Final Fantasy.

I never played FFI-FFV, started with FFVI and stopped playing FF (and JRPGs) right after FFX, so Im unfamiliar with many of those names on the list.

Deary me. Zack? Zack!?!?

Tidus 4th as well, good lord.

And Noctis 19th. I've had enough.

vivi on 25 very sad :((

Nice to see that list, brings back some memories.
I'd switch Tidus for Auron though and Cid would be a bit higher in mine. Other than that I can understand the ranking. Personally I really like it that Zack made first place. May he rest in peace.

I however can see some people around here disagreeing ferociously with this order...



Hope above Snow???

Hope = Auron???



Shocked Noctis is on the list, but I agree wholly with the top 2 :D

All of this, of course, is just my opinion.

Cecil for the win. Tidus and Squall are too low, as is the warrior of light (when great times were had by all).
