Notably, series-creator Hironobu Sakaguchi has at one point stated that he considers this game to be the quintessential ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'', being a composition of all the key elements he has constantly been shooting for. Composer Creator/NobuoUematsu considers the ''FFIX'' soundtrack his MagnumOpus as well.

''Final Fantasy IX'' is [[RevisitingTheRoots a return to the series' roots]] and the classic MedievalEuropeanFantasy worlds, after the more futuristic approach of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII''. Both graphically and story-wise, it set a new standard for the games that followed it. Particularly, ''Final Fantasy IX'' is known for combining a sunny and light-hearted visual atmosphere with a very mature and thoughtful FromBadToWorse story. The game is additionally a celebration of Franchise/FinalFantasy's origins, and contains many, ''many'' references to SquareSoft's earliest few installments.

* BlackSheep: These days, SquareEnix seems to treat this particular game as one for the wider franchise. It's one of only two main-series games to have never gotten either a full retail remake for another system (and even the PSN release took ''forever'' to come out compared to the others) ''or'' a dedicated spinoff product. This ''may'' have something to do with Hironobu Sakaguchi's contentious departure from Square, possible lingering legal issues, and/or technical considerations[[note]]It's the only PS1 Final Fantasy title that didn't get a PC port around the time of its original release, meaning that they only have antiquated PS1 code to work with and would likely have to remake the entire thing from the ground up, whereas ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' were comparatively simple port/uprez jobs that could be done on the cheap.[[/note]]. That being said, [[http://ps3.ign.com/articles/980/980580p1.html Takeshi Arakawa]] has openly said he'd ''like'' to make a sequel, so some people in the company do love the game... but the higher-ups seem to keep quashing remake and sequel ideas.

Added DiffLines:
** ''[[Anime/TheCastleofCagliostro Castle of Cagliostro]]'' featured a [[AnimalMotif monkey-like thief]] who attempts to rob a corrupt kingdom, only to run into and help the princess as she tries to flee her own country. The princess carries an heirloom that triggers a giant mechanism within the castle. It also had a [[ButtMonkey comically ineffective]] authority figure constantly failing to thwart the thief, [[FireForgedFriends but in time takes his side]] to fight the greater villains. [[{{Expy}} Steiner even has the same face]] as that character down to his eyelashes.
