Remember when Cid sacrifices himself in the Underworld:
Cid returns in time to save Cecil’s party from falling into the lava. He introduces himself to Rydia, a Summoner from Mist, and has her call him “uncle”. The Enterprise is wrapped in the Mystic Silver that allows it to cross the lava, but the Red Wings have been modified as well, and they have the Enterprise in a dogfight around the Underworld. Cid orders Cecil to take the wheel and exit the Underground while he closes the hole with a bomb, and jumps off the airship to save the others and is assumed dead.
Cid doesn’t die, but we don’t know that yet. He also doesn’t even lose his beard.
For all of those who believed they lost a permanent party member, I’m sure this scene was really sad. Wouldn’t it be more emotional with a sad rendition of his them?
OCRemix has a remix of “Hey Cid”, Cid Pollendina theme. What if it were overlaid on Cid’s “sacrifice”?
