I am ecstatic about Emet-Selch and Crystal Exarch making the character list at all. I suppose Estinien must've made the top 10 at this rate...

"Blinded by Light" a surprise for the music rankings, though in hindsight it is probably actually the best standard battle theme in the series. That wailing violin...

(Minor corrections: Trance Kuja is from FF IX, not FF VIX (5-9? 59!?), and "Eyes on Me" is from VIII, not XIII)

Wow, I'm surprised Squall is so low. He usually ranks up there with Cloud and Lightning in these things.

I'm just glad Agrias got some limelight. Guess the Ivalice raids in FFXIV finally got her some attention (now if only SE would stop being meddlesome and let Matsuno do what he wants)

How is yuffie so low. She is easily the best FF girl in any game.

I can guess some of the character who make the top ten, but I cant pick ten characters better than Sephiroth arguably one of the greatest video game, if not all time villains. Id put him on par with the likes of Darth Vader, Hannibal Lector, etc across all media.

I hope Vincent is on the list, and honestly there should literally be on ff13 character on this list. Kefka would be interesting as well.

Cloud is probably going to be no. 1 favourite character, but I hope Cecil will be included in the top 10 too And speaking of songs, I can see Clash in the Big Bridge and Dancing Mad included.

I think Gilgamesh will be higher in the summon rankings and Kefka will probably get a high spot both as a character and as a boss.
Yojinbo barely made the list at all, Rikku and Edgar are also pretty low. I'm wondering if my other picks didn't made the list at all or are in the top 10.

Btw, did you guys vote too?

Top 5 will easily be Cloud, Lightning, Aerith, Yuna, and Tifa. Not necessarily in that order. They usually top these polls

My favorite FF characters are Cloud, Squall, Rinoa, Aerith, Sorceress Edea and Sephiroth since I grew ip playing Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII.

My poor Yojimbo should be higher than this Sad

I'd have Sephiroth quite a bit higher too. Hope Kuja has a decent spot and Zell from 8 has always been one of my favourites too but I'm not really sure there's much there popularity wise for him...
Looking forward to seeing the results.

I won't be surprised if Lightning is in Top 10, based on the fact that Blinded by Light still stood at the test of time. Japanese people really loved FFXIII.

Auron deserves a higher rank than fifteenth.
