How would you feel if Light became a series mascot?
DragoonGriffith posted...Cloud had a huge number of fans (moreso than haters).
Well this is the Lightning returns board. Everywhere else she gets sha* on.
Actually a while ago on 4-chan they were bashing her.
FFVII and Cloud were MASSIVELY popular, the hate is inevetible.
The hate was basically non-existent around the time it was released, at least on FF boards anyway.
That doesn't really bother me. Sometimes sequels aren't planned. People just get the chance to make them and they write them in. Nothing wrong with that imo. And Toriyama is tooting his own horn a bit calling Lightning the first female protag, when she only could be considered that because of a technicality.
None of this stuff compares to what they did to poor, sweet Cloud in advent children though. They completely reversed all of his development in the later half of FF VII so that they could make a movie about his nonexistent angst.. They even admitted to it. That's just wrong. :u
I like Lightning, but I wouldn't want her to be a poster girl for the series because that's just plain dumb. All characters that were born from their own world/title need to stay in that world (unless it's Kingdom Hearts/Dissidia) as that's how it makes them unique. Putting Lightning in every game as a hint would be very upsetting.
Gilgamesh was already in multiple games and is similar to chocobos, so that's okay with me. As for Chocolina, I don't know what I would feel about her if she appeared in other titles. A part of me wants to say that she should stay in the XIII universe, but at the same time, it would be interesting if she became a recurring element in future titles.
She already has. The next phase is to replace every main FF character with Lightning.

That would suck, not even Cloud became that popular. Though i wouldn't mind if she cameo'd in versus or something. A non canon optional boss fight.

Lightning actually does become a series mascot in the future. In future games, there are many easter eggs where lightnjng appears. In one game she eventakes chocolina'w role and sells you stuff. In another, you have to chocobo race against her, and she's even the final boss in on e game.
They already doing that. I wouldn't be surprise if she appears in KH3 next.

That would just be awful beyond imagination.
