Storyline

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 peace 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 Annonymous

Trivia

Originally released in America under the name Final Fantasy III. Since the original Japanese Final Fantasy III was a totally different game, this has been a large source of confusion of fans for years. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: 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?

It changed my view of video games...
9 February 2004 | by danilomayaSee all my reviews

I played this game for the first time in 1995 (i was thirteen at the time) and i didn't know much about rpg's except for Zelda which is also a very good game. In the beginning i didn't understand the gameplay and i thought it was boring and almost turned off the snes to never play the game again.

Luckily i continued playing and after a couple hours (when you choose between Sabin, Edgar and Locke groups)i realized that it wasn't just another good game, it was like entering in a parallel magical world which you don't want to comeback. It was so perfect in all the sense of the word, music, story, plot, game play etc etc that i just want to be part of the returners or a soldier of Figaro or something.

This is not only the best video game ever, this is better than any movie, book or anything as well. Now i'm 22 and i still haven't feel this with any other game (including ALL the others final fantasy) and i think i'll never feel it again.

There's a gigantic difference between a very good RPG like Chrono Trigger, FFVII, FFVIII, etc and the mighty FINAL FANTASY VI.
