Yes, there is.

Pokemon = #1
FF & DQ = shared #2 (DQ's more popular in Japan, but FF has the edge in the west)

Aside from these, no JRPG franchises sell in the millions consistently these days.

In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.

Not really everything is successful in its own way, exception is recent console FF, handheld FF is fine.

Pokemon

It's the second most successful gaming franchise overall.
