“…SeeD… SeeD……SeeD…… SeeD, SeeD, SeeD!
Ultimecia says when your team approaches her. But earlier in the game, another character says this same line.
Selphie: “SeeD! SeeeeD! SeeeeeeeD!”
So what, right? Anyone could say this. It’s not like they say this the same way. Selphie is probably singing, while Ultimecia is manically ruminating.
And besides, Ultimecia is Rinoa Heartilly. No. When we kill Ultimecia, we don’t kill Rinoa. We kill Selphie.
Ultimecia looks like many of the women in Final Fantasy VIII. Maybe Tetsuya Nomura used a base model for all the females in the game?
All women have a high susceptibility to gaining magical powers in Final Fantasy VIII’s world.
Rapture – Wings appear and carry enemies away. It does not work on enemies immune to eject.
The End – The party instantaneously wins the battle. Works against all enemies apart from undead creatures and the percentile range for this particular slot coming up is low.
The End is a particularly special case, as:
The End (ジエンド, Ji Endo?) is a recurring ability in the series. It is the ultimate Limit Break for Selphie Tilmitt, which defeats all enemies and ignores immunity to Instant Death, much like the similar Slots ability Game Over and Joker’s Death, with the exception of undead enemies.
And most notably, her limit break makes the ending possible. The End is the same spell that turns the barren Time Compressed world into one of lush fields and flowers.
So why does any of this make Selphie Ultimecia?
…it doesn’t. Just like a couple of superficial similarities don’t make Rinoa Ultimecia.
They both say “SeeD”.
