List Rules Vote up the worst Final Fantasy characters of all time, from any version of the game. Vote down the characters you don't mind that much.

Final Fantasy games are known for their rich lore, sprawling overworlds, and innovative combat systems, but their true legacy is creating at least one cringe-worthy character in every title.

The worst characters in Final Fantasy come in all shapes and sizes; the good the bad and the Quina (like, seriously what was the deal with that?).

Bad characters started appearing in the FF series as early as 1990 when then franchise launched (the protagonist didn't even have a name in the original Final Fantasy!), but ever since Square merged with Enix to form Square Enix, they've been trying to reinvent the wheel with every new release.

So what's it take to make the cut as one of the worst characters in FF history? Some are simply boring or poorly written, others are utterly useless in combat, and some are just so weird you have to wonder if developers just ran out of ideas.

So here they are, the worst characters from Final Fantasy games. Some are party members, some are NPCs, some are even leading characters, but they all have one thing in common - they're just the worst.

From The Guardians of Light to Noctis Lucis Caelum, who do you think are the worst Final Fantasy characters?
