Thanks to bajablastingoff for the inspiration!
If you took enough time, you could find any connection between two or more Final Fantasy worlds. But many of them might be dead leads:
So I’m watching the Edolas Arc of Fairy Tail (for lack of a better term) and am I the only one who noticed a striking resemblance between The Royal City and Final Fantasy 7s Midgar? Also, Edolas Lucy looks like Cloud from Advent Children, Edolas Natsu looks like Reno, Royal Gaurd even looks similar to the Shin-Ra army. Am I just crazy or What?
I don’t think Bajablastingoff is crazy. But I don’t don’t think Edolas Lucy looks like Cloud. I also don’t think Edolas looks like Reno. And the Royal Guard doesn’t look like anyone from the Shinra army. You could make the argument that the army’s design evolves. But I don’t see it.
Bajablastingoff seems to suggest that one of the towns evolves into the other. But no matter which one, it couldn’t work. Let’s say the Royal City evolves into Midgar. This might make sense, seeing that Midgar looks futuristic. But I don’t think anyone was around to rebuild the Royal City. What if the Midgar devolves into Royal City? The same problem arises. The people abandon Midgar and live around the edges.
Now of course, each city has technology similar to our modern day advancements. But this is just a coincidence. It’s how we relate to both cities, especially ones with modern-esque cities. Nothing suggests they’re on the similar timeline, let alone the same world.
