That is one of the dumbest leaps of logic I've seen you make yet. The results can't be right because girls like attractive men? lol, okay bro. You realize that nearly all the men in this series are good looking?
back then this series had manly men. right before the series jumped off at ff10. you know when square decided to make all their characters seem the same. just saying.
gamefaqs. home of the funny and source of information.
Im more surprised to see bartz at rank 6, i mean he beat Kain Cecil, Locke and some other good contenders, not that i mind tough FFV is my favorite of the series.
Japan (and maybe the world) loves certain tropes of characters, it's made pretty obvious in these rankings. But it is what it is.
I wish people would accept this already. :/ Japan is SE's primary market. They are going to make games that appeal over there first and foremost. If they don't like that, they should just play western rpgs. There are plenty of burly and gruff men in those.
