List your worst JRPG main character

Lol I also came in here to post Emil. It's hard to go for more than 5 seconds of that game without wanting to punch him in the face.

Picking the worst girl is a little harder. Meredy from Tales of Eternia is a strong contender, though a lot of that has to do with the fact that game is easily in the top 3 worst dubs of all time and she's the centerpiece of the awfulness. In Japanese she's not nearly as annoying, and I actually used her a lot in RM3 because she's a very good mage there.

Oh wait, duh, how could I forget Pascal from Graces F? She easily outdoes Meredy in hellish annoyingness.

And if that wasn't enough, her AI is also completely terrible so unless you control her yourself she will constantly die. I eventually gave up on reviving her because I liked her better that way.

It's interesting how many godawful characters come from the Tales series. Maybe it's just because there's a lot of them.

1) I never said that. Also, your opinion. Also, irrelevant to the matter.

2) I didn't think anything. He has straight out missed huge plot points, that are the clear reasons Cloud Strife does what he said he does.

3) I never said that, despite of my opinion. Also, irrelevant to the matter.

4) I didn't tell him to replay. I said re-experience. I.e., he could read/discuss the specific parts he missed/doesn't remember.

The thing is, this topic is for people's opinions on the worst JRPG leads. He obviously feels that Cloud is that, and he's far from alone in that.

You jumped on him for having a very common opinion about Cloud

Instead of adding to the topic, you got upset that he "didn't get it" when he clearly did and doesn't like the character. Those reasons you stated obviously weren't very clear as you think. Or maybe the reasons aren't really much of an explanation for him? Or maybe he was like me, got about halfway through, and said "F*** this POS" and never bothered to finish it because he didn't like the characters/story/whatever.

Re-experience generally means re-play because you can only get so much out of discussions without actually playing through the games.

Oh yeah, thats right. The girl who needed to also be included since the JRPG rulebook says the effeminite "lead" must have childhood friend mage tagalong that yells at him all the time for being reckless, but secretly loves him and wants to make babies righ tnow, but will never do anything about it, since this is rated T for teen. :)

Hmm, that's a good question, who is my favourite girl from Tales? It's surprisingly hard to think of ones who are really likable.

I kind of like Pasca Kanonno from RM1, I guess. She's an interesting (and tragic) character, though I don't particularly like the way they implemented her moveset in RM3.

Ange from Tales of Innocence is also pretty cool. She's by far the most badass healer character in any game, with crazy combos to rival Tales' most accomplished swordsmen. She's also the source of a lot of funny parts of the game, though they're generally at her expense rather than her just being innately wacky.

Still though, the best Tales characters are clearly men. Eugene, Garr, and Kratos are probably my overall favourite characters from the series, and I do have a bit of a soft spot for Mighty Kongman.
