The plot of Final Fantasy VI (originally released as part III in the United States) follows a diverse group of characters as they first try to bring piece by stopping the Empire. After the Emperor's top general, Kefka, betrays him and takes power, the world is destroyed from the misalignment of the three Goddess Statues. One year later, the warriors must reunite and stop Kefka once and for all. Some of the characters include the mysterious Terra, a woman who knows little of her past, but was born with magic powers, Cyan, a Knight of the fallen kingdom of Doma, Locke, a treasure hunter, Celes, a former Empire general artificially infused with magic, and many more. The games plot contains screwball comedy, intense drama, and hits every emotional chord in between. Written by

Did You Know?
The two soldiers that accompany Terra at the beginning of the game are intended to be references to the Star Wars characters Biggs Darklighter and Wedge Antillies. However, in the English language version, there was a mistranslation, and Biggs became Vicks. This same error occurred when characters with the same names appeared in Chrono Trigger
(1995) as two of the men in Norstein Beckler's lab. Later games in the Final Fantasy series used a corrected translation, beginning with Final Fantasy VII. It was corrected in the PlayStation Re-release in 2002. See more
The evasion stat is useless. All evasion is calculated with the MBLOCK stat instead. This also makes the beads relic worthless. This error exists on the SNES and PSX incarnations, although there are ROM patches for the SNES version to fix this. See more
Long ago, the War of Magi reduced the world to a scorched wasteland, and magic simply ceased to exist. 1,000 years have passed... Iron, gunpowder, and steam engines have been rediscovered, and high technology reigns... But there are some who would enslave the world by reviving the dread destructive force known as "magic". Can it be that those in power are on the verge of repeating a senseless and deadly mistake?
