I noticed that the main playable characters if every Single Final Fantasy game in existence are swordsmen and women. It doesn't matter if it's futuristic or ancient setting. It doesnt matter if it's young,old,male or female. The main hero always wields a sword. I will exlude sub sequels since those are spin offs.

Final Fantasy 1 Warrior of Light

Final Fantasy 2 Firrion


Final Fantasy 3 Luneth



Final Fantasy 4 Cecil Harvey

Final Fantasy V Bartz


Final Fantasy 6 Terra Brandford


Final Fantasy 7 and 8

Cloud Strife and Squall Leonheart

9 and 10
Zidane Tribal and Tidus


12 Vaan

13 and 15

Lightning and Noctis

I think compared to gun and the cross bow the sword feels more masculine. And also it feels like you are putting in the work to attack the demons or whatever your target is. So it seems like a good weapon.

Other weapons like nunchucks, Skepters, gaunlets, masons, hammers and guns always ends up with secondary and support characters.

Also there seems to be history how people feel more pride holding sword over any other weapon. I am not sure how the sword tends to gain that much demand. But in eastern culture they are more of symbol of pride and honor over anything.

The only Final Fantasy main character who is not a sword User is Yuna. X-2 is more of a spin off and subsequel of X though.

Also she is a support character in X that managed to have her own spin off because she became more famous than Tidus.



Oops I forgot about this.

Yes, they use a lot of different kinds swords as well in Final Fanatasy- and some of them include the Mythril Sword- and this is kind of a starter weapon. Some others include "Save The Queen" and I think General Beatrix-a woman carried this one. One of the biggest has to be the Buster Sword though-and it's a sword that Cloud carried.

In 13-2 Serah who was an Archer became a swords woman.


Non sword users automatically turns into sword users if they took over on a subsequel.

Personally mine is Zack Fair.I like cloud as well; but i believe Zack to be the better of the two. Zack has the traits of your stereotypical hero. He's friendly, charismatic, and just wants to be the best. However what we don't see with Zack is a tragic background, typically in the Final Fantasy universe. Which is so cliche because all Final Fantasy characters have a tragic background. So who is your favourite Final Fantasy protagonist?

I wonder if there will be a controversy if the next main character is a gunslinger, archer or a bare hands Martial Artist. It will be the first time FF will have a non sword using main character.

I want the main character to be a mage who uses magic attacks only. Someone who can't do sword fighting and martial arts for an underdog narrative. He or she will have more warrior type allies though.
