Gabranth is in Dissidia :D

I knew it'd be either him or Vaan.

Gabranth was my favorite villain from FF12.

I can accept Gabranth being the rep.

It's almost as if Nomura was taunting us, all the Vaan vs Ashe arguments and Vayne being considered a shoe-in, and we got Gabranth, who few people probably seriously expected.

Still, Gabranth is bad ass enough for me, but now I wish we got Basch as well :_(

Could Gabranth really be categorized as a true-blooded "villain" though? I mean, people like Kefka and Emperor I can understand. But Gabranth? It's almost sort of disrespectful to his character to just lump him in as a villain with the others.

Now Vayne would've been a badass villain in Dissidia.

They chose Gabranth to complement Shantotto, since both FFXI and FFXII were only getting 1 character.

Shantotto is an anti-hero from what I've heard of FFXI. Gabranth is sort of an anti-villain. It makes sense I guess.
#9XeonGQ(Topic Creator)Posted 12/19/2008 10:55:21 AM
There's also that both the XI and XII rep are meant to be sort of "morally ambiguous." Shantotto is mostly a good guy with some... destructive tendencies, and Gabranth works for the bad guys but has a strong sense of honor and duty.

For those interested, here's some videos of Gabranth:

Hm, random I know, but while I was looking for Gabranth videos I stumbled across this.

It amused me.
