''Final Fighting Fantasy'' is a MassiveMultiplayerCrossOver series of the first seven ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games, made in Flash using sprites from the games themselves, among other methods. It follows the conquering heroes of each of these games as they suddenly seem to find themselves thrown together in some merged world thing (it's not fully explained), and start fighting each other instead. This is revealed to be related to a plot by the "Ancients" and the balance between light and dark, which after all the heroes' victories is now tilting too strongly towards light.

The series was most notable for being an [[KillEmAll absolute bloodbath]], its surprising seriousness at times, and the fact that it still hasn't been finished. The creator, [=SplashKhat=], promised the next (and final, possibly two-part) chapter was in-development some time ago, yet there has been no word since. That there was a considerable length of time between chapters 12 and 13 might give hope that the wait for 14 is nothing unusual, except for the fact that the gap between 12 and 13 was just under two years, whereas the wait for 14 has been close on eight years now. So it seems like this is another notable ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' fan-work that seems to have ended abruptly forever. Or not quite yet...

The entire series was originally posted on {{Website/Newgrounds}} and is available for viewing [[http://www.newgrounds.com/collection/finalfightingfantasy.html there.]] No relation to Literature/FightingFantasy.

This series contains examples of:

* AnimationBump - "Epic", and to a lesser extent, "Twilight" and "Shodown".
* AnyoneCanDie - Anyone and '''everyone''' it seems.
* BackFromTheDead - [[spoiler: Shadow]]. Interestingly enough, ''only'' [[spoiler: Shadow]]. None of the other numerous dead characters get a second chance, even though apparently phoenix downs now ''can'' raise people from PlotlineDeath.
** This actually more interesting than it seems. The author actually held a [[PopularityContest open poll]] on his site where people could vote for who they wanted to resurrect. And [[spoiler: Shadow]] only very narrowly beat [[spoiler: Cecil]].
* BreatherEpisode - "Forces"--a refreshingly humorous episode starring Edgar and Sabin--is placed right between "Twilight" and "Hiryuu".
* CerebusSyndrome - From "Gaiden" onward (and especially after "Epic"), the series gets more and more serious, interrupted only by "Forces".
* DeathIsDramatic - Played straight with [[spoiler: Shadow, Red XIII, Edge, and the airship crew]], but mostly averted. Most of the characters die in [[BlackHumor darkly humorous]] ways with energetic battle music in the back and little comment on their deaths afterwards.
* DeconstructionCrossover
* DownerEnding: As the possibility of the series actually getting a conclusion becomes less and less likely, it seems the ending we will be left with is the depressing image of [[spoiler: Lionheart walking away from the dead body of Edge, leaving only two heroes left to oppose Kain's ever-growing forces.]]
* DrunkOnTheDarkSide - [[spoiler: Kuro]].
* EvilCostumeSwitch - [[spoiler: Celes in "Shodown"]]. {{Lampshaded}} by her: "White just doesn't suit me anymore".
* FaceHeelTurn - Kain (though it's made obvious from the second chapter onward), [[spoiler: Celes, Lionheart, and Kuro]].
** [[spoiler: Vincent]] might also qualify, but now it looks like [[LeftHanging we'll never know.]]
* FailureHero: Any time any of the heroes try to stop Kain and his allies, they will ''always'' end up losing, and more than likely die.
* GrotesqueCute - The cute summoned Chocobo who proceeds to ''eat Klarth's head''. Did we mention this series was gory?
* {{Homage}} - As if the tributes to the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games weren't enough, "Gaiden" is also an {{Homage}} to ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden''.
* KillEmAll - Out of the '''thirty-nine''' ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' heroes who make up the series' cast, only '''eight''' are still alive.
** Well, '''nine''' depending on your interpretation of [[spoiler: Gau's scene]].
** And it's worth noting that a couple of MAJOR heroes have still not shown up at all.
* LeftHanging - As stated above, there has been no word on the series' epic conclusion for some time now, so it seems pretty hopeless.
** It's not the first time ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' geeks have gotten this treatment, though--anyone else remember "FFVII: The Cheesy American Soap Opera Version"?
** No promises, but WordOfGod (see the discussion page) says that the creator still has interest in seeing the FFF finished, but don't expect anything soon.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters - And most of them are killed the same chapter they are introduced.
* LoveTriangle - Locke/Celes/Kain
* NamesTheSame - Subverted with Cid. He actually is the same guy that's been in every Final Fantasy from IV to VII.
* NoDialogueEpisode - "Airwings"
* PlotHole - A number of them, most of which are probably just due to the series being unfinished.
* RageAgainstTheMentor - Locke and [[spoiler: Shadow]] in "Duo".
* RealSongThemeTune - An [=OCRemix=] version of "Terra's Theme" from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' called [[http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR00205/ "Death on the Snowfield"]], used frequently (though not consistently) throughout the series.
* SquishyWizard - The same characters who were {{Squishy Wizard}}s in the original games, but it's worth noting that Kuro certainly doesn't turn out very squishy...
* VillainProtagonist - Arguable given the series' ensemble cast nature, but Kain certainly qualifies.
* WhamEpisode - Both "Gaiden" and "Epic" fit the bill, the first due to its (relatively) enhanced storytelling style, and the second due to the AnimationBump and revelation of just what the hell is going on in this world.
