If something like this has been done before then by all means close this.

What is your best moment whilse playing classic Final Fantasy?

Mine had to be when I finally beat FFII after I got round to leveling up my characters HP/MP and also figuring how to do so.

05-08-2008, 02:57 PM
Opera scene in FFVI.

My best moment in a classic Final Fantasy, was seeing Rydia come back a full grown woman when everyone thought the Leviathan ate her as a child.

Another was seeing the Airship Giant Whale summoned.

05-09-2008, 02:08 AM
My favorite moment is probably when Kefka descends for the final battle. Too epic for words.

However, another really notable moment was when Cyan sees his recently-departed wife and child board the Phantom Train. The way in which that tied in to prior events was brilliant and emotional.

05-09-2008, 10:56 AM
True and there is one other that I can think of. Remember these?

1. In the shot scene during battle when both Edgar and Locke was suprised that Terra used magic.

2. When Relm came in to battle with Ultros who refused to get his portrait done.


3. When Strago (I think) refuses Relm to join the group but bad to because they know what effect it can do.

Maybe I should also add funny moments in any classic Final Fantasy game.

05-09-2008, 07:50 PM
Best Moments:

-FFVI, Edgar & Sabin's coin scene.
-FFVI, Saving Shadow. Cool because he didn't die like everyone else seems to if they ask you to leave them behind. Of course he's a ninja.

Worst Moments:

-FFVI, The Gold Bear. Finding out a fucking bear can steal half my gold.
-FFVI, Finding out dinosaurs can cast Ultima.

05-09-2008, 08:04 PM

Best Moments of Classic Final Fantasies..

1. The opera scene in Final Fantasy VI, clearly the greatest scene in ANY Final Fantasy game to this date.

2. When Palom and Porom cast "break" on themselves to stop the walls from closing in and crushing everyone. Followed by when you can heal them... dramatic 16 bit action, lol.

3. The scene with Edward when he sees Anna's ghost

4. When Edger says to Relm "I'll see you in 10 years, kid" That was an lol moment.. ^^

The worst Moment...

Guy being able to speak with giant beavers... @.@

05-22-2008, 09:22 PM
1. Opera scene- FFVI
2. Cecil becomes a Paladin- FFIV
3. The final and epic battle with Kefka- FFVI
4. Final Fantasy music - all FF

Cloud dressed up as a female. I know it was only for a few minutes but it is bloddy funny.

05-26-2008, 02:40 PM
FFVII is not a classic. Classics are FFI-VI.

06-05-2008, 01:33 AM
Well, I am starting to FINALLY play Final Fantasy V, which I say because I keep telling people I haven't played it, and I have to say.


It sounds like a freaking corny hentai...

Not to mention that the battle music makes me vomit everything bad about every evil RPG in the world (Earthbound, Mystic Quest, etc.).

It is really bad music. Definatley the worst in the series.

06-05-2008, 11:50 PM
1. Terra marrying Celes at Gold Saucer

When did that happen?


-The Temple of Chaos (Past)
-Chaos Battle
-Citadel of Trials

The sacrifice of a third of the playable cast

Being remade for DS

Red Wings theme
Cecil becoming protecting Rydia
the twin's sacrifice

All gilgamesh scenes

The Keyword system

Not being released on PS1 or remade for PSP

Dr Lugae - seriously what does this guy contribute to the plot?

Lenna - seriously What the hell is with her and getting poisoned?

Ultros - seriously that guy annoys me

impudent urinal
06-06-2008, 02:21 AM
Ultros - seriously that guy annoys me
Blasphemy! Ultros is awesome.

I was very impressed with the scene where Celes attempts suicide if you fail to keep Cid alive.
And anything with Ultros, because he is cool.

EDIT: But yeah that Keyword system blows.

06-06-2008, 11:28 AM
Well i do admit that i like the bit with relm and ultros - other than that Ultros annoys me

I completly forgot about Celes suicide attempt - great scene

06-12-2008, 02:01 AM
The best:
-FFIV red wings theme..............

Final Fantasy IV (The whole game)


Guy talking to beavers in Final Fantasy II. What the hell, man?? That was shitty.

08-20-2008, 07:22 PM
alot of the ones I can think of have been said already but I would put in two things for cyan which really hit home

The posion water of Doma which was a terrible shock and when they leave the phantom train and it pulls away with Cyan's Wife and Son that was very sad I think in some cases much more sad then the death of Aeris really which doesn't seem so plausible sometimes, but those two do

08-24-2008, 11:10 AM

Seriously. HATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

11-06-2008, 01:44 AM
A few strike me right away, all from FF6, probably just because it was a lot more dramatic than the first 5. The opera scene of course, Cyan's wife and son getting taken away on the phantom train (Weird how that's so memorable even though no one knew anything about the characters.) and Celes' suicide attempt...

My favorite was the first time Terra transformed into an Esper. It was great. :)

04-21-2009, 04:40 AM
FFI - Bahamut's Lair
FFI - summoning the airship

FFII - The final boss is impossible.

05-26-2009, 09:39 PM
best: getting further than a friend who is playing longer
FF3 killing Bahamut yeah
FF4 cid and yang alive
FF4 killing bahamut with while i have half health and no reflect

Worst:FF3 butt kicked by leviathans water attack
FF4: tellah being the only actual death
FF4 missing augments
FF4 Final boss doing Bigbang twice in a row killing everyone

05-26-2009, 11:01 PM
FF4 killing bahamut with while i have half health and no reflect

wow I didn't realize that reflect works on bahamut. I would just let him kill my party and use well timed kain jumps so he'd nuke things when I'd be in the air to survive.

Memorable moments in FFVI (sigh...)
1. The opera scene (all of it!)
2. The scene where gau meets his father(aww...)
3. The end of FFVI (ooooh...)
4. Where Sabin meets Gau (I laughed myself sick!)
5. The poisoning scene in Doma (That was so sad...)

07-25-2009, 05:50 AM
For me the Best moment in a classic Final Fantasy game would have to when Rydia came back in 4. The first time I played it I was convinced it was game over and then suddenly a ray of hope.

Second would have to go to fighting Zemus at the end of the game. When I was a boy, 8 or 9 I think, I walked downstairs to find my mom playing against his second form and then she killed it. I'll never forget what she said as soon as he began to shake. "If he turns into something else I am tossing this thing out the window."

To be fair she had been fighting it for nearly a week.

The worst would have to be Edward and all things to do with Edward. No offence to those who like him I just never found anything to do with him particularlly fun and that's important in a game.

Why are you talking about white and pink sneakers in french?

Anyway, most horrible moment in one of the classics for me was:
In FF4, when you lose all of the light crystals and all of the earth crystals... then you go: D'awwww.... Why didn't I see that one coming?

08-11-2009, 06:04 PM
Drakon, you have the shittiest strategy of all time.

I lol'd at this, and +1 on that Peechaboo.

1. Opera Scene - FF6
2. Locke trying to talk to Celes (sad moment), she runs off - FF6
3. Finding Yang alive - FF4

1. can't think of any!

08-11-2009, 07:28 PM
i cant think of any bad scenes :P opera scene from ff6 was great, flying worm boss on airship was annoying :)

Ultros? The Air Force?

Best: Beating FFI, the ending sequence: "Always remember that the true crystals are in your heart". I teared up. Also, completing my FFI & FFII Dawn of Souls bestiary. My file was deleted soon afterwords, though, and I cried. Remember, kids, there are three save file slots for a reason.

Worst: Spending 3 days so far grinding in the ??? Cave (FFIII) and I still can't get a damned Onion Gauntlet. Is it just me, or is the Green Dragon the rarest of the three? I'm trying some more as I type. Red Dragons and Onion Shields are now some of my most hated things in Final Fantasy. I don't use shields in the first place! Max HP grinding and level 99 grinding were also really annoying.

I've only played the first three Final Fantasies, but I'm planning to move on to IV soon. And if I think that the Onion Equipment is hard to get in FFIII, then I'm going to probably want to kill Puddingway by the time I get Rainbow Pudding in IV. And that isn't even talking about collecting tails to trade for Onion Equipment...I am dreading these sidequests.

Also, FFV has great music, and if you don't believe me listen to "Clash on the Big Bridge" or "My Home Sweet Home". The final battle themes and the main theme are pretty good too.

Best Moments:
-FFVI, Finding out dinosaurs can cast Ultima.


09-03-2009, 11:24 PM
I like the scene in VI when Edgar asks Relm how old she is and his embarrassed reaction to her reply. Also on the airship after the final battle when she stands next to him and he blushes.
I like quite a bit of II, particularly the deaths/sacrifices of... um... O_O What were their names again? The good men who died?? The white mage, the monk and the paladin.
I also liked in the same game when the characters meet Leila and also when the Lamia Queen tries to tempt Firion by taking the image of the princess (gosh, I'm really bad with names for some reason!). The emperor's resurrection and revelation that Leon is the Dark Knight are also great.

11-17-2009, 03:44 AM
I liked it in IV when you found Yang and Cid still alive, was annoyed you couldn't bring Yang back into the party though. I also thought that Cecil as a Dark Knight looked cool, I hated the Paladin look.

I absolutely hated Edward, he was the most annoying character to control, every time he lost a fair bit of hp he'd run off hiding, and he was useless when he wasn't hiding in the first place.

Finding out Cecil and Golbez were brothers didn't really add anything to the story for me. I liked that Cecil's past was shrouded in mystery, but to just throw in that Golbez is his brother just seemed pointless. Also FuSoYa just seemed to be how Tellah would have been if he hadn't died. I understand his role in the story, to explain the Lunarians and the Moon etc but using him as a fighting character for 5 minutes wasn't fun.

12-09-2009, 10:01 PM
Now, I can only base my answer off of the GBA versions of I & II, and III on DS, so I hope those count. Anyway, for I you don't really have a boatload of memorable "moments" because the story is almost nonexistent, but what you do have, there is actually some pretty good stuff. II is the same way but there's more story, just little character development.So, here's my take on this :D
I - The opening sequence with that familiar FF theme, setting the heroes off on their quest.
II - When Leon snaps out of it and joins the heroes.
III - Not very far into this one yet, but I'd have to say my favorite part was defeating Djinn and seeing his curse lifted :D
IV - Woa, where to start.. Cecil becoming a Paladin, Palom and Porom's sacrifice, really all of the characters' sacrifices, and the epic, EPIC ending :D
V - Hmmm.. I'm roughly 15 hours into this one and I've only played through it once. For me, the only real moment I can say I remember fondly is fighting Gilgamesh on the big bridge (So far that's been my ONLY encounter with him :() because I heard the battle theme for that particular part, and was anxiously awaiting that scene in the game :D
VI - Again, where to start.. LOVE the opening sequence, the opera, VERY shocking part where the world was destroyed by Kefka (Seriously I've never been so swept off my feet in shock by a video game moment), and when you get the airship in the WOR, where just Edgar, Celes, and Setzer decide life IS worth fighting for, and they're gonna fight on and stop Kefka. Coupled with the ensuing music, that was one of my favorite parts in the whole series.

So there you have it :D I think the recent ports and remakes of the first six (I have Dawn of Souls: I & II on GBA, III DS, IV GBA & IV DS, and V & VI GBA) are the best versions, not to mention the definitive versions. Can't beat watching your favorite characters finally gain voices and 3D graphics :D
