Out of all of the Final Fantasy parties, the bros in Final Fantasy XV might be most iconic.
Sure, we know of Chocobos and the black mages. Everyone knows about Cloud. Lightning must not be forgotten.
But the bros of Final Fantasy XV are famous despite being in Final Fantasy VI.
Of course, Final Fantasy XV’s character backstories are weak. But their personalities are so recognizable, you know who’s who. They’re memorable on this merit alone.
You know how many memes Ignis and Prompto generated? Gladio is the stereotypical strongman. But his love for Cup Noodles is ridiculous. Be honest: how many of you bought Cup Noodles simply because your pal Gladio ate it? And how many of you thought about Gladio in the checkout line as you were purchasing
that nasty trash a 30 cent meal?
Noctis might actually have the weakest personality, as he’s kinda like a generic everyman character. You won’t forget his warp-strike mechanic anytime soon.
Say what you want about the gameplay and lack of story. The characters of Final Fantasy XV work well together. This alone is the magic of Square Enix and Final Fantasy.
