Final Fantasy games have given us a large amount of playable characters over the years. Some of them are fantastic and are almost universally liked, and some of them are... well, not so good. These ten games all include at least one/a few good or likeable characters, but overall, which Final Fantasy game had the most annoying, least likeable and/or downright terrible cast? Post your arguments below as well (if you want to, of course).

(NES games and MMOs do not count for obvious reasons and the poll does not allow more than 10 options anyway.)

Oh god. 5. The fifth one.

Forgetful and boring. Only FF I disliked playing. Final dungeon was nice, aswell as the job system. But perfect example of bad characters make an uninteresting game.

FF13 I atleast enjoyed for awhile. Up until late endgame when I realized the endgame consisted of fighting brontosaurus's till the end of time to hit max everything. So I just beat the game and shelved it.

Both equally terrible cast of characters but the lack of depth makes 5 harder to ingest. This isn't including Gilgamesh or Exdeath.

VI. I played it like 3 times, and I only remember like 5 of the 16 people.

XIII's cast had a lot of spunk, even if Vanille and Hope are generally hated by people.

I haven't played XV enough to judge its characters, likewise with V, so VI is my answer for now.

I was literally about to say that I myself voted for V. I actually loved the game and while I didn't mind the cast, I just didn't like any of them either. I tried, Faris and Lenna were cool for a while but... I don't know. Yes, I know the game was supposed to be a parody in a way yet... They all felt very bland and uninspired. XIII, on the other hand, at least tried.

I'm sorry to say but X had the worst cast, I really liked the gameplay and music but the characters grated..
