Eh? When'd we get into the world of FF2? :P

Anyway, if you assumed a world with Kefka was not Hell, then you need to go replay FF6.

Eh? What do you mean by that?

(By my count, that's the second time you quote something of mine and answer with "About that...". Finish your thoughts! :P)

I've never really played FF6 in the first place. I think I got to Kefka's Tower (or whatever that tower you needed an airship for in the World of Light/NotRuin/Whatever), but that's about it.

I've tried. On three different occasions. I can never get into it.

Besides, I have too many other games to play anyway.

Ah, sorry to hear that. Still, if you got to the airship in the World of Ruin, no one can say you didn't give the game a fair shot. :thumbsup: If you decide to give it another try someday, I hope it goes better than the others.

In response to the first post and the second:
Yyyyep, I think Kefka learning to play the reality-warping kid like a violin and introducing her to some serious sorrow might just redefine hell for that world. ^_^o

There are two airship-requiring towers in FF VI, and both pertain to Kefka, but both also take place after the world gets devastated.
The only other places that are called out for requiring an airship (that I recall) are the Imperial/Southern Continent with Imperial Capital Vector (and Magitek Research Facility), and the Floating Continent (and, technically, the Cave to the Sealed Gate). Do those ring any bells?

Looking at a walkthrough, I think it was the Magitek Research Facility.

Ya know, Cyan probably wouldn't have needed any help to take on those bogeymen.

One Oblivion, and they'd have all fallen to pieces.

I actually never beat the game either. I basically got lost in the world of ruin. I had the airship, but I got suck trying to get Terra back. I recall looking at a walkthrough at the time and concluding my save was bugged, and never getting back to it.

My first thought upon reading the last panel of this comic was: "Oh, no, Kefka. For the love of your own Modus Operendi, do not go there!"

I daresay that soon we will be looking at something like as happened at Mysidia except:
A: Kefka has absolutely no idea of what he's about to unleash (much unlike EoD)
B: There's no Creative/Hope energy source in the heroes' possession (e.g. Frog's Masamune; Celes' acting ability wouldn't be applicable here.)

I feel that Kefka, like EoD, shall soon awaken a power that should've remained dormant. (Or, as dormant as the shard currently is...)



Actually, I do see a way that our heroic Diva (in both the operatic and the Ogre Battle sense) can prevent this: Congratulations, Locke: you're about to become a foster father of a Girl of Mass Destruction. At least, if Celes can calm the girl down from the ledge of Despair...
It's a flimsy pretext, but I'm sure that the N-Team have gotten away with worse.

Here's a good point that Celes was trying to get across, that I'm amazed a rather smart Engineer-type and a Knight who's actually quite handy with machines seemed to miss completely: "Boys. SHUT UP, get up there, and FIGHT HIM before he makes it worse." Sadly, they didn't seem to get the urgency. And to think these boys were some of the heroes of this world? *facepalm*

He's had practice at this. Geeze Terra must have had a messed up childhood; she was reared by Kefka. I wonder if she flew off to Dylan and Katlin's baby who may be a reincarnation of, or be symbolic of, or bring back magic or life or sparkles? The ending was kind of vague on that matter.

Kefka is a nihilist. He would be happy to unleash that which is worse than himself, which is why his is the first Final Fantasy where anyone summoned the ultimate evil power and kept his identity. [so many spoilers for FFs I've played] Garland -> Chaos, Xande -> Cloud of Darkness, Zemus -> Zeromus, Ex-Death -> the void.[/ though they should not surprise you if you've played this sort of game] So I don't think this is foolish of Kefka, by which I mean I don't think it will have consequences that upset him if she unleashes waves of sorrow. Sorry, waves of SORROW.

And if he is despite logic, it will be very dramatic, and if it is directly rather than indirectly I will suspect Dr. Wily and his ilk not immune to the girl/shard either. People who are well defined and yet never change are supposed to be immune to corruption, and people who laugh are supposed to have extra resistance.

(Really? A link to tvtropes' PersonOfMassDestruction when the name says what it? Don't even bring up that tin article it is always unnecessary.)
Hey, the comic seems to be updating kind of regularly. Maybe we should vote to spread the word.

Messed up childhood? Well, yeah.

Raised by Kefka? Well... no, the game doesn't support this idea at all.

The game doesn't really explain much about Terra's childhood, but it seems to imply that she lived her childhood as a lab rat. Kefka put a slave crown on her at one point (she's depicted as an adult at this point), but Terra outright fears Kefka the first time she sees him in-game.

So many people in this thread who I want to beat with my footwear (It's my favorite game)....

Still I find it amusing that one of the biggest bads in videoland may have gained untold power from letting Kefka mentally abuse a 4 year old.

Four? She's at least seven. After all, she can at least understand what everyone's saying.
