*** ''XIV'' also featured Lightning directly from ''XIII'' to help promote ''Lightning Returns'', [[spoiler:while ''XI'''s Iroha seems to have somehow ended in Eorzea instead of returning to her timeline on Vana'diel at the end of ''Rhapsodies of Vana'diel'', and seems to be here to stay.]]

The series is highly regarded for its outstanding production values and gameplay, and for being a pioneer in the EasternRPG genre. Many of the conventions of {{Eastern RPG}}s that didn't originate in the ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' line originated with the ''Final Fantasy'' series, which in turn was influenced by ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' and other Western computer {{role playing game}}s. Even to this day, each new ''Final Fantasy'' game attempts to evolve the genre with new gameplay innovations or approaches, and although [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks this can be divisive to the fanbase]], credit is generally given to their attempts to at least ''try'' something different in the heavily-stagnant and conservative EasternRPG genre.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII'' [[note]]not to be confused with ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', which was originally released in North America as ''Final Fantasy III''[[/note]] (1990): Four youths are tapped by a mysterious crystal to restore balance to the elements. Took a page from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIII'' by implementing the job system - allowing characters to switch jobs at will - and threw players a curveball with its expanding [[OverworldNotToScale overworld]]. (Though an airship is found early on, upgrades are required to float over [[ChokepointGeography mountains and other nuisances]].) Easily [[NintendoHard the most sadistic]] game in the series.

** This concept is played with in the DS remake of ''IV''. In the remakes up to then you could rename the characters, but come the DS release the cutscenes, which had voice acting, would make this confusing. Thus you can't change the names of your party members, causing Namingway, the character who performed this function in past versions of the game, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hedhemk42ZI&feature=player_detailpage#t=389s freak out]] when he tries to rename you and can't, inspiring him to embark on a journey to find a new purpose in life since his old one is now gone.

** Odin is depicted as a BlackKnight whose WeaponOfChoice is not the trident Gungnir, but the sword Zantetsuken. ''Videogame/FinalFantasyXIII''[='s=] incarnation is able to transform into a horse and use lightning powers. Odin in ''XIII'' is also the Eidolon of Lightning, who takes on the aesthetics of a {{Valkyrie|s}} in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2'' and effectively the job of one in ''VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII''. ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV''[='s=] incarnation of the character gave him attacks referencing Myth/NorseMythology such as Valknut, Einherjar and the aforementioned Gungnir. His horse Sleipnir often does not have the 8 legs associated with him (and in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' is AKindOfOne).
** Shiva. In Hindu Myth, Shiva the Transformer is a male god who defends and changes the universe. Here Shiva is a [[GenderFlip female]] entity with power over Ice who is closer to a Yuki-Onna. The name might be a pun on the word "Shiver". ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' makes Shiva a pair of twins who can merge into a Motorcycle.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' included a set of bosses based on TheFourGods. One of those bosses is Fenrir, who is a bipedal white tiger representing Baihu. Fenrir in the original mythology was a wolf and a quadruped, not a tiger.
