    Are you into D A R K N E S S ?

    No? Then maybe you need to be reeducated by Sephi's long sword ::ink::

    Tell us why you'd like to get "punished" by him on the comment section. Please avoid heated discussion on why Jecht/Sinh/Yevon are the antagonists of X. Just learn bois.

    Notes: You can only select one option. You can change your vote afterwards. Voters will be displayed.

    I think Kefka was just pure evil incarnate thus he gets my vote.

    For me, i chose the One Winged Angel because he killed one of the playable characters. Others might have killed millions but they are considered NPC.

    Cool thread topic. Unfortunately I only played from 7 on except for 1 which I didn’t finish. So it can’t be fair to vote when I don’t know them all. At least that’s how I feel.

    An interesting factor this thread makes me consider is what exactly defines a great villain. For me, I like villains I can sympathize with to some extent, villains who exhibit some human aspect and who aren’t so easy to hate, outright. These types often cause internal conflict within us, provoking us to question what is right from wrong.

    So even though I didn’t vote on the poll, I feel like between 7 and 10, I’d choose Kuja based on my criteria above.

    Yeah I guess it depends on how you look at it. If I had to choose the most compelling/complex/relate-able character or villain, I'd probably choose someone else. Since the poll title says "bad guy", my criteria was who was the most bad/evil of them all. There were others who perhaps did more damage or had more globally destructive goals, but Kefka to me felt like just pure malice.

    I won't SEPHIROTH give my SEPHIROTH opinion on why SEPHIROTH a "bad guy" needs to SEPHIROTH have a backstory and SEPHIROTH reasons other than SEPHIROTH just killing for the sake of SEPHIROTH killing.

    But feel free to vote the option that appeals to your understanding of what a "bad guy" is.

    Kefka is clearly the best antagonist of all times. :D His 8bit evil Laugh is still printed in my mind since 1994.

    ::kefka::

    After everything he did, there isn't a boss in FF I've wanted to maim more than Kefka. The fact that he won, and took such obvious delight in doing it, really nailed it for me. Also, between poisoning the entirety of Doma castle, killing a good number of his own army (and Leo ::rudecat4::) in Thamasa, and literally destroying the world, I'm 99.99999999999% sure he has the highest body count of all FF villains.

    Dat laugh tho.

    If the factor is only having the look and vibe of being a bad guy, then for me its Sephiroth

    However, if I were to only consider their antics and sheer evilness, definitely Kefka, he is what I call twisted evil
