%%* GenreSavvy: Balthier is constantly LeaningOnTheFourthWall with his astute observations of how the story around them unfolds. He immediately believes Basch's story about having an EvilTwin, is aware that the ancient tomb they're about to break into will be full of booby traps and monsters, etc. He also constantly reminds others that he's "[[TheHero the leading man]];" as such he may be called upon to perform a HeroicSacrifice, and is confident he has PlotArmor since "you know what they say about the leading man; he never dies." However, he's also WrongGenreSavvy since he ''isn't'' the main hero; when Fran suggests he's "more of a supporting role" in the ending, Balthier gets offended.


Added DiffLines:

* WrongGenreSavvy: Balthier self-identifies as "the leading man" upon whom the story centers around, and tells the others that HeroicSacrifice and PlotArmor can be expected to come into play with him due to this status. Despite this, it's Ashe who in practice acts as the main character, with Vaan as the SupportingProtagonist, and Balthier's expectations concerning his role never come to pass. When Fran lampshades this reality during the ending, Balthier is offended by the idea.
-->'''Fran:''' I'd say you're in more of a supporting role. \\
'''Balthier:''' Fran, please.

* MasterOfAll: He's got all around amazing stats in ''XII'', having emphasis on strength (best score along with Basch), magick (second best score), vitality (best score), and speed (second best). Stats-wise, he's easily the best character of your party. The cherry on top of the cake is that ''even his attack animations'' are faster - Vaan can deliver combos in under half the time than the rest of the party (save Basch and Balthier) needs to execute the same amount of blows.

In the ''International Zodiac Job System'' release, his strenght is slightly nerfed, but overall he remains a powerhouse.



* MasterOfNone: Like Vaan she is an all around styled character, but with all her stats being all around low. In fact, stats-wise, she probably is the worst character of your party, being overshadowed by everyone else.

In fact, stats-wise, she probably is the worst character of your party, being overshadowed by everyone else. The ''International Zodiac Job System'' rebalances her stats by giving her the best Vitality score (whereas she was second to last in the original release), and altering other stats among the other controlable characters. She remains average, but the gap is not as wide as before.
