If there is one thing Final Fantasy is known for, it would have to be the playable cast of characters. The games usually have an average of something like 6-8 party members per game (with the exception of FFVI of course). Since we have a ton of characters to pick from, what would be your dream team? If you had the option to play a brand new Final Fantasy game with any character you want, who would you choose? Who would you want to journey with?

Rules

1) Pick party members from Final Fantasy I-XIV. FFXV is not out yet so it does not count.
2) No spin-offs, sequels, prequels, card games, novels, browser, mobile games and any other side stuff.
3) For MMO's, just state the job class and sub class(optional) if you want.
4) No temporary and side characters.
5) You can only have 7 party members.
6) No villains.

My dream team.

1) (FFVI) Shadow
2) (FFIV) Rydia
3) (FFVI) Strago
4) (FFXI) Red Mage(main)/Black Mage(sub)
5) (FFVI) Celes
6) (FFVII) Cid
7) (FFXII) Balthier

Now I can't stop thinking about how awesome it would be to have a 7-character party in battle.
Here's my dream team:
  1. Squall (VIII)
  2. Vivi (IX)
  3. Irvine (VIII)
  4. Lightning (XIII)
  5. Snow (XIII)
  6. Terra (VI)
  7. Celes (VI)
If side games/sequels were allowed, I'd have Noel (XIII-2) instead of Irvine. If temporary characters were allowed, I'd have Laguna (VIII) instead of Vivi.

Hm... Let's see...
  1. Lightning (XIII)
  2. Cecil (IV)
  3. Vaan (XII)
  4. Squall (VIII)
  5. Kain (IV)
  6. Tidus (X)
  7. Snow (XIII)
Well, I know characters from side games are illegal in this dream team, but would it be alright to have their fighting styles loosely based on Dissidia 012? Only because that would make them my true dream team. Also, personal achievement for not putting Cloud on there!

Personally, I always loved the way you could swap characters mid-battle in FFX, so I'm arranging my team with this in mind. Here goes nothing:

1. Squall (FFVIII)
2. Balthier (FFXII)
3. Terra (FFVI)
4. Auron (FFX)
5. Seymour/Yuna (FFX)
6. Rinoa (FFVIII)
7. Shadow & Interceptor (his dog) (FFVI)

Wow, I'd surely love this.

Ohh nice nice, let's see!

4) Tifa (FF VII)
5) Fang (FF XIII)
6) Balthier (FF XII)

No order here, just the order I think of them in.

IX - Princess Garnet Til Alexandros XVII
VII - Tifa Lockhart
VII - Vincent Valentine
VII - Barret Wallace
X - Auron
IX - Vivi Ornitier
XIII - Sazh Katzroy

My team is more VII heavy than I really would have figured had you asked. I also love me some summoners- summoning is the best. It's too bad I couldn't fit Yuna on here, but I'll give her an honorable mention.

1) Squall (VIII)
2) Vincent (VII)
3) Balthier (XII)
4) Lulu (X)
5) Vivi (IX)
6) Rydia (IV)
7) Sazh (XIII)

pretty range heavy, but with Squall dealing out Lionhearts the rest of the team can flare and shoot the hell out of whatever.

I normally roll a good variety of classes and styles in RPGs that let you roll jobs for your party members. If the game permits me, I'll roll a party that encompasses as much of the usual RPG job spectrum as I can.

TEAM STAND-BACK-FELLAS-I'VE-GOT-THIS

1) Cyan - samurai (FFVI) <-- can be interchangeable with Auron. They can both totally take turns.
2) Basch von Ronsenburg - presumably a knight/warrior (FFXII)<-- man in his thirties with battle scars > a teenager with no scars and flawless skin with improbable swords.

TEAM MAAAAAAGIC

3) Vivi - black mage (FFIX) <-- because he is more powerful than Jesus. Probably.
4) Rosa - white mage (FFIV) <-- this will probably be the only time that this character does anything memorable.

TEAM LET'S-RAIN-DOWN-DEATH-AND-DESTRUCTION-FROM-A-RANGED-DISTANCE

5) Yuna - summoner (FFX) <-- Garnet came to mind too, but Yuna can potentially summon a giant, homicidal chicken from the underworld where it is in chains and tortured by the forces of hell. Or something like that.
6) Balthier - he's got to be a gunner (FFXII) <-- because we needed a leading man.

BONUS PERSON

7) Red XIII - attack/magic all-rounder (FFVII) <-- at the last resort, he can bite a guy's leg, causing enough of a distraction for everyone else to start slashing/shooting.

BONUS BONUS PERSON

8) Rinoa's dog - cannon fodder (FFVIII) <-- when goings get tough and we're THAT desperate for a weapon. And for a chance to ensure that PETA becomes the final villain of the game.

How do you get over 7 characters ?:\

1. Squall (FFVIII)
2. Balthier (FFXII)
3. Terra (FFVI)
4. Auron (FFX)
5. Seymour/Yuna (FFX)
6. Rinoa (FFVIII)
7. Shadow & Interceptor (his dog) (FFVI)
Seymour is temporary.

1) Cloud (because spikey hair)
2) Barret (because black)
3) Tifa (because boobs)
4) Ultimecia (because fingers)
5) Sephiroth (because epic)
6) Kefka (because crazy)
7) Balthier (Just because)
Read rule #1 and #4

Updated the original post with a new rule. No villains.

Interesting thread. Mind you I didn't finish all Final Fantasy though I have played majority of them. I'm going for balance, personal favourites, interesting characters (while not repeating any classes):

  1. Black Mage - IX - Vivi
  2. White Mage/Summoner - X - Yuna
  3. Monk - VI - Sabin
  4. Gunner (ranged attacker) - VII - Barret
  5. Thief - IX - Zadine
  6. Warrior - VII Cloud
  7. Dragoon - IV - Cecil
  8. Beastmaster (main)/Ninja (sub) - XI

Notable mentions:
I didn't expect it will be this hard when I select, if I have 12 it might be easier, but 8 really had me think of what which characters were my all-time favourites. So this is a list of characters that got very close:
  • Darknight (main)/Thief (sub) - XI - my set up for XI, insane damage dealer if pair with a great Paladin
  • Edgar - VI - it's hard to choose Sabin but not Edgar as they are such powerhouse together
  • Lulu - X - I always like Lulu but if I have to choose only one black mage, Vivi wins
  • Red Mage (main)/White mage (sub) - XI - my second set up for XI. Extremely efficient and will always be the last one standing
  • Lightning - XIII - many doesn't like her, but I actually find her at times even more interesting than Cloud. I chose Cloud for overall balance of the team above.
  • Balthier - XII - Seriously, who doesn't like Balthier?
  • Amarant - IX - I think overall, he is an extremely valuable character, I chose Sabin over him only because Sabin always have a soft spot in my heart.

This is harder than I thought.. but my dream team in specific order would be:

1 - Squall Leonhart ( best main character )
2 - Zell Dincht ( always chilled )
3 - Lulu ( nice rack to keep my team motivated )
4 - Wakka ( "I'm from Jamaica maan and I kick ass" )
5 - Auron ( Always need that tough wise guy in your team )
6 - Cloud ( someone to replace Squall should he need a break )
7 - Rikku ( cute and bubbly, and a thief for the right team )
