List Rules Vote up the best Final Fantasy characters of all time, from any version of the game.

List of the best Final Fantasy characters from the original game to the newest titles in the series. These unforgettable characters, including Cid and Cloud Strife, are probably partially responsible for high sales across the Final Fantasy franchise, having sold millions of copies. Because of the popularity of the “Final Fantasy” franchise, some might even consider these characters among the greatest video game characters ever created. But which Final Fantasy characters are the best?

Choosing the best or greatest Final Fantasy characters can be difficult for both casual players and hardcore fans alike. There are powerful warriors, sensual sorceresses, and next-to-impossible bosses, all of whom come alive for players as they progress through the game. Most players generally, however, rank newer characters among their favorites, perhaps because of the higher quality graphics and game play newer systems allow. Technology has come a long way since the introduction of Final Fantasy in 1987.

Improvements don’t mean that older characters aren’t memorable or aren't integral parts of the Final Fantasy franchise, though. For example, can you imagine Final Fantasy without Sephiroth? Many fans rank him among the top characters in Final Fantasy. Another commonly seen character is Cid, who is consistently a fan favorite as well.

This is a list of the best Final Fantasy characters of all time. Some are playable, some are not, but they’re all consistently ranked as fan favorites. If you haven’t played the Final Fantasy series yet, you’re missing out on some of the most exciting video game characters out there.
