There are always statements about this game being similar or even copy the story of Bahamut Lagoon, both being part of my favorite games of all time I personally can't see even a little bit of resemblance outside some omnipresent JRPG tropes, so can someone who spreads this notion around tell me how exactly you figure they were made from the same mold?

** From the sequel, we're told that summoners did exist before Sin. And during the Machina War against Bevelle, Zanarkand put summoners out on the front lines to fight. There have always been fiends, so summoning possibly developed as a way of fighting them. Or perhaps it was just an ancient tradition.


Added DiffLines:

** It's also implied that the rest of the group is partly charmed by Tidus's cheerful nature. Lulu is living proof of that - since she seems to develop an almost protective older sister attitude towards him, explaining the various rules and traditions of the area. And they might be reluctant to have to break the news. If you ride with Rikku to Macalania Temple, she realises that Tidus doesn't know the truth and can't bring herself to tell him.

** I always thought that the kiss was underwater, then they continued on the shore doing other things... That's how I see it anyways.

** Talking to Rin on the airship at the end of the game gives some background on Braska's interactions with the Al Bhed, including Yuna's mother and Cid. Yuna likely met Cid and Rikku during her early childhood while traveling with her mother, before Sin killed Mom and Braska died with the Final Summoning. As to why Cid didn't take her in, Kimahri found Yuna in Bevelle almost immediately after Braska's death and started taking her to Besaid. How do you think Kimahri, not to mention just about every other nearby human, would react if the Al Bhed "heathens" suddenly showed up out of nowhere and tried to "kidnap" the High Summoner's daughter, particularly with the blasphemous "lie" that she's half Al Bhed? Everybody in Besaid, including Kimahri and Wakka, would have fought the Al Bhed tooth and nail if Cid had come to pick Yuna up. Given that Yuna was living happily in Besaid, Cid was probably waiting for a more opportune time to contact her once she'd grown up and struck out on her own. That way, he'd avoid causing any grief with the people of Besaid. However, once she became a summoner, Cid knew he had to act and added her to the list of summoners the Al Bhed had to try and stop.

** An Unsent is sustained by obsessed, but also bound by it. Mika's obsession with unchanging continuity, Seymour's obsession with power, Auron's obsession with his past promises (luckily, that one's not evil). They are incapable of moving past those obsessions; unlike those who've yet to die, Unsent can never really change. Can you really call that "living"?

** Whilst the Fayth may be creatures of peace, they are slaves to whoever has summoned them. Spiran Hitler could order Bahamut to MegaFlare a school and he wouldn't be able to do a thing about it. And the fact that Aeons can only be summoned once could actually be a very good reason why Zanarkand lost: They are the ultimate AwesomeButImpractical weapon. No matter how many mechs that Yojimbo cleaved in two, or how much infantry Valefor dive-bombed; there would always be many, many, more. It is also important to note that unlike a machine, healing magic works on an Aeon so they would have been almost impossible for the enemy to kill, especially if any of the summoners knew Belgemine's trick of healing all of your Aeons at once.
