I was playing FFX the other day, and I realized there are a lot of things in that game that just make me go "WTF?". Now, I know it's "Final Fantasy" and I'm fully willing to acknowledge that on some level, but there are things that just really get me thinking.

FFVII:
-How can Cloud's hair defy gravity on so many levels?
-How does a gun really function on a person's arm?
-Are Cloud and Sephiroth compensating?
-Was Barret related to Mr. T?
-Why are all the ladies attracted to Cloud? Srsly?
-If Vincent is a vampire, why doesn't he suck blood?
-How come the Highwind doesn't blow up when you run into the crater and it zaps you back?
-Why do they walk into Cloud when they're going somewhere?

FF9:
-How does Amarant's hair defy gravity on so many levels?
-How did Brahne get that ugly?
-Why doesn't Garnet remember her childhood?
-What the hell is Quina Quen?
-Why does Kuja look like a woman?
-How come little sheep can pwn you, but huge dragons barely do anything?

FFX:
-How can Wakka's hair defy gravity on so many levels?
-How come Lulu's boobs haven't fallen out of her dress yet?
-Were Zanarkands stupid? Because Spira knew about Zanarkand, but Zanarkand had no idea any other place existed.
-Why do they look more Japanese in FMVs?
-How can Seymour have such long fingernails?
-Why can't Auron just wear a coat like a normal person?

Any FF:
-Where do your team mates go after a battle?
-Where do you put your weapons when you're not using them?



These aren't really meant to be serious, so I don't want people bitching at me about how it's a fantasy game. I KNOW. But they're thoughts I've had while playing that make me laugh.
What are you "HMMMMMMM?" moments?

I've thought that before XD

Things that make me go 'Hmmm':

How do Blitzballers breathe underwater?
Why does the Blitzball travel at such high speed through water?
Why does Auron wear a sling thingy?
Why do all of the Jenova cells contain the allele for silver hair?
How does Basch go from starving and scrawny to big and muscly within hours?

As much as I hate FFXII, I must agree with you on this one. xD

^ You know it's true though xD

Why do many of the main characters look the same? (e.g. Cloud, Tidus, Vaan)

Why are all of the 'healer' characters female? (or, they are in most cases - Yuna, Aeris, etc.)

in general: how is is that most video game characters have magical pockets that they can stick giant gems and two-handed swords into without thinking?
(i.e lara croft putting excalibur in her 'backpack' - i swear one of her boobs wouldn't fit into that thing)
i want one of those bottomless backpacks xD

well, as we all know, the people of zanarkand were extremely self-centered. the idea of there being SOMEBODY ELSE out there was punishable by law, etc

(jokes)

huh... Well... FFVIII for now:

FFVIII:
- Why does Rinoa have the name Heartily??? Whose mane it is? dry.gif
- Why did Laguna left Squall in Kramer's orphanage??? And why did he never try to bring him back in his side? sad.gif
- Why did Laguna never try to go back to Deling city to find Julia back? huh.gif
- Why is Zell so unlucky?
- Why is Squall that stubborn and despairing ? blink.gif the first time I played a didn't pay attention but now...

In FF XII :

How characters can change equipment so quickly ? The Myst ?
It's so difficult to imagine, for exemple, Basch or Penelo or any other character tell Yiazmat : "oooh wait for a minute my baby, I change my equipment !"... and in a lightning time, he/her put away is spear and brandish Tournesol !

In FF X :

How blitzball players can't swallow water unintentionally when they sleeps ?

Edit : How Shaami and Vilucha can play blitzball with their long skirt ?!!!

Just curious, but shouldn't this thread have a spoiler warning? Just in case people reveal information regarding Final Fantasy games that people don't want revealed.

There, I added a spoiler warning.


Still, most people haven't really got the point of this thread...

because they had more time to detail the FMV, just like a real movie cartoon tongue.gif

What about the whole Tidus jumping off at the end and fading...why couldn't he just hold yuna until he disappeared?

AND

In FFX-2

Where the hell did I miss the scene with yuna and rikku holding each other and why were they doing that? hmmmmmmmm

-Was Barret related to Mr. T?

I think I read that Barret was actually based off him.
Wasn't suprised. tongue.gif

QUOTE
-Why can't Auron just wear a coat like a normal person?

Because holding your sword arm out of your sleeve is a mark of a ronin (a masterless samurai), or so I've heard.

FF7
- Why is the most powerful cannon in the world named after a transvestite in a song by Velvet Underground?
- How can Red XIII's "weapons" make him any stronger...at all?

FF8
- Why is everyone cool with kids aged barely 13 becoming mercenaries (read: they kill for money)?
- Am I the only one who thought Fujin was a guy until the game explicitly told me that she wasn't?
- What would Time Compression look like if it actually happened, I wonder?

FF9
- Why does Cinna look like a clown?
- How could Quina be preparing food in the Alexandria kitchen (go there when you play as steiner in the beginning and you'll see) when it's very unlikely that (s)he has ever left the marsh?
- How can Vivi have kids at such a young age/appearance and who is the mother, if anyone?

FFX
- Why does Yu Yevon look like a tick/jellyfish hybrid when he's the father of a human (or used-to-be human anyway)?
- Is there a foolproof way to distinguish a male Hypello from a female?
- Why do Al Bhed wear goggles to conceal their eyes when the goggles are much more of a give-away themselves?

FFX-2
- Why don't any of the characters barf at the thought of Brother perving over his own cousin?
- What the hell is Tobli, and why does he wear something that makes him look like a penguin?

FFTA
- Did Montblanc and others have a real-life persona too? If so, who was he?
- What do Judges specifically do to combatants alive? As far as I know Montblanc just said that "It's because of the Judges that nobody can die in an engagement" or something like that?

Many FFs
- Why are all final battles fought in a place that's not even accessible by any normal/physical means?
* FF7: Something that looks like Heaven, even though they couldn't be further away from the sky. Afterwards, a completely black background where I didn't see any way for Cloud to escape from.
* FF8: I forgot.
* FF9: The Hill of Despair. How the hell did you get there?
* FFX: On a structure that looks like BFA's sword, surrounded by a sky that looks remotely like the Farplane's. WTF?

They did. It was after you face the Guardian something on Mt. Gagazet, right before Zanarkand.

I remember them talking there, since they didn't want "Yunie" to die... Hmm, I guess they hugged...
