Lightning is just a cheap knock-off ! *spoilers*

Think back to FF XII, around whom did the plot revolve? Serah.

Serah was the one who started the plot by causing the main characters the become L'Cie. She was the reason Snow and Lightning fought past despair and inspired others to do the same. She was indisputably THE most useful character in the game despite being inanimate.

Flash forward to FF XII-2. Who was the one that beat Caius? Lightning? LOL no. Serah once again demonstrated her usefulness by beating the villain despite not receiving instant special powers like Lightning.

Now I know Lighning is Toriyama's favorite character but the amount of pandering she gets is just ridiculous.

A hundred different costumes? Restoration to main character status? Come on, Toriyama even messed with Serah's character to "free" Snow and so that Lightning can save him and carry him off in her arms.

tl;dr: Ligtning is just a cheap Serah knock-off. She doesn't deserve all the special treatment she gets or her status as the protagonist of this game.

I've had this argument with my friends too many times about serah > lightning.

The game is called Lightning Returns, not Serah Returns. Deal with it. She might not be the best character, but there's no doubt she's a character loved the most by many. Including me.

Aww, it's okay bro. No need to act tough deny your affection. No one will fault you for having a crush on a fictional character. You don't need to slander her name to look indifferent.

Quite a dumb logic you got there, skipper.

I suggest you accept my dislike for that trash.
