** Yang gets the biggest IdiotBall in regards to this. He was there when Cecil unmasked Cagnazzo as having murdered and replaced the real King, which means that he (along with Palom and Porom) should be the most ready to believe that something is rotten in the state of Baron.

* Why doesn't Rydia appear to have aged much, if at all, between the original game and TAY?

****** Perhaps the one who turned Kain into a Holy Dragoon wasn't Cecil's father, but instead Kain's father. Other popular theory states that it was the deceased king of Baron.

**** But while they play a similar role in being magical MacGuffins, Magicite is explicitly identified by Ramuh as the remains of Espers, whereas the Crystals in I, III, IV, and V are of ancient and unknown origins. Furthermore, there's, at most, 8 Crystals associated with a given world, while, between the party's collection and what we see Kefka gathering onscreen, there are dozens of pieces of Magicite that we the players know about.

* Considering how frequently mind control was used in the first game (to the point that the guy doing the mind control was ALSO mind controlled) it seems rather foolish of most of the cast to ignore or disbelieve the rumors of Cecil becoming evil. Yeah he's the hero and everyone trusts him but especially since everyone notes that the events of the first game are flaring up again, you think their first thought upon hearing Cecil's erratic actions would be to immediately assume Zemus had returned and was controlling him (even if that was wrong assumption as to his pupped master)

* Soooo, why no Bands with Ceodore, Kain and Cecil? Seems like a wasted opportunity to me.
** Golbez and Rosa really should have gained one during the fight with the Dark Knight, too.
* Am I the only one bothered by the fact that Ceodore is shoehorned into the main character role when he barely gets ANY screentime at all? If ANYONE has the makings of being main character, then it would be Rydia, just for the sheer amount of plot and development that revolves around her over the course of the game. Hell, [[spoiler: even the ENDING has a special place for Rydia, giving her Cuore the Maenad for her to raise as a daughter.]]
** As I see it, Ceodore lost his main character role when he lets his party split up once they get into Baron Castle, which allows the Mysidian Mages to leave before they find any information worth taking home, and the Hooded Man to [[LockedOutOfTheLoop lock him out of the loop]] regarding Cecil's condition. After that, the plot happens at such a fast pace that he doesn't get a chance to do anything that stands out.

** Well, this is a world that has propeller-driven airships; I know the ship's sprite has a sail, but maybe it has a motor... too? Upon which it primarily relies? Regardless of what may be wrong with that concept? Besides, without a leaky fuel tank, Yang wouldn't have to go punch a tree to make more oil.

** But Final Fantasy 6 WAS a Crystal game. The Magicite Shards are shaped exactly the same as the Crystals in 4, they serve a similar role in the plot (that of the goal of the enemy) and Doom Gaze is even carrying one in the World of Ruin.
