Not being one of the retro-FF-ers, I can't comment on the first 6. Otherwise, I'll say Auron, Irvine, Vincent, Garnet and Squall (moody bastard that he was). Rinoa was also very cute.

And Sephiroth was of course excellent.

Er, favorite playable charecter or any charecter?

Shadow is awesome but I also liked Locke so that's a tie.  I'm partial to the Turks in 7.  What was the name of the gun slinger in 8, I remember playing for several hours before realizing the gun slinger was suppose to be a dude.

The FF8 guy is Irvine.

My favorite is either Sephiroth or Vincent.

One of them has a backstory that dosent make me laugh from the stupid mistakes in the plot.

The other has a reallly big katana and a theme song.

since it's entirely too hard to narrow it down to just a few from all the games, i'm gonna list some from individual games.

ff2 (4) - kain and fusoya were my favorite playable, and golbez was an awesome villain.

ff3 (6) - locke, shadow, and mog for playable.  general leo for non-playable (oh i was so pissed off when he died).

ff7 - red XIII, vincent, and, of course, sephiroth as the coolest. villain. EVER.

ff9 - vivi, for ironically being the most human among the cast.  i'm also partial to freya.

chrono trigger - frog and magus both have an extreme coolness factor.

Tidus didnt have much self-doubt and angst. He was some straight-up california-surfin' dude without a care in the world except to DEFEAT SIN and play blitzball. Which is why every word out of his mouth had something to do with defeating sin or playing blitzball or TOTALLY RADICAL.

Aeris (no im not going to call her Aerith fuck off) was my favorite character probably because I loosely associated her with someone i knew in real life. I cried when she died, I did.

Ahh, except when considering characters! The overly dry nature of FFT's story drops it a few rankings...
Character-wise, the rankings SHOULD be

6: FFT
5: FF8
4:FF9
3:FFX
2:FF7
1:FF6

That's right... 6 takes it. And Kefka ROCKS. Anyone who denies it denies themselves any kind of old-school cred.

Yah. Old-school FF had better charachters. But the new games are just so much more fun to play! So many more options!

But FF X2 should be launched into deep space and forgotten. Even though a more intellignet species might consider that an ac of war.

I will list, as that is what makes the kids cool these days.

FFI: The Monk, he looks freakin' sweet.
FFII: Not far enough to tell yet
Jump In the games I played.
FFVII: Yuffie, come on people
FFVIII: Selphie
FFIX: Vivi, hands down
FFX: Rikku
FFX-2: Payne
FFT: The Mime (as a class, the characters are iffy)
FFTA: Everyone but Monblanc, I hate that loser.
Final Fantasy Unlimited (The anime): Cholby, if that's how you spell it.

There... That's how I see it.

Jeph really was right, though. The heroes are kind of whiny, but it's the circumstance that makes them endearing.

Aeris dies in FF7.

Oh, and Darth Vader is Lukes father.

Sometimes spoilers just stop being used for something, and there's nothing you can do about it.

FF 1- Monk
FF 2- Golbez
FF 3- Locke, Shadow, and Kefka (oldie but goodie bad guy)
FF 7- Cloud, Sephiroth
FF 9- Vivi (and all his kids, too)
FF10- Khimari (less is more)
FFT- Ramza
Xenosaga- KOSMOS and Jr. (don't you think Albedo is a cheap knockoff of Kefka?  He tries so hard and fails so completely in the whole maniacal laugh and merging-with-superpower thing)

Actually, if you watch all the credits at the end of FFX, you may get a surprise.

Kefka was indeed a totally sweet maniac.  However, his mania was put to shame by the utter awesome-osity of Sephiroth.  You can't play an MMORPG these days without seeing at least 25 variations on his name.  So perhaps he's a little too popular, but he is awesome.

Cloud was cool cuz of his sword, but other than that he might as well have been Crono, since he didn't really do anything.  As far as oversized-sword wielders, Auron takes the big FF cake.  Auron was not only sweet to use in-game, but he had some of the coolest lines.  For an overdrive he used to say "Pray...NOW" Thats SWEET!

On a more personal note, all you guys know that you lost your girlfriend when Sephiroth puts his sword through Aeris.  I played the game after all my friends did, and I brought up the fact that she died in class right after I played it (I was 16) and they all looked at me and said, "Hey man, I'd rather not talk about it.  I'm still pretty upset."  I have Aeris' theme on my computer, and I play it every once in a while when they're around and watch their faces.  It gets em every time!

Sephiroth was lame.

Seriously.

Sure, he looks badass and has a neat sword, but his motivation was lame and his biggest moment was killing Aeris.

So what?

KEFKA BLEW UP THE GODDAMN WORLD!

Kefka > Sephiroth.

Zidane.  His name was Zidane.

Climbing up a ladder, he grabs the female protagonist's butt.

"Ooh... soft!"
"AAAAH!"

And that is why Zidane is the best FF hero ever.

seriously though, Locke is a great character and Zidane was definently a good character. The aforementioned "ooh, soft..." bit rules too.
