"At long last! The ultimate sword…is…MINE! Now I can finally go home! Hey, where did YOU come from? Oh, you mean you were looking for the Excalibur, too? How rude of me. I mean, the four of you come all this way… Of course I’ll let you have the sword. ...I’d say you’ve been hitting the oxyale a bit hard if you believed THAT!"
In addition to being the first in the series with plot and slight characterization, FF2 has the first utterly hilarious scene. The rebel princess (that Firion et al. work for) has been acting strangely, and tells Firion to come speak to her. Alone. In her quarters. He agrees, and shoos out the rest of the party. Princess Hilda goes a few steps away...Firion follows. A few more...Firion follows. Then four things happen, pretty much all at once: She climbs on to her bed, the screen tints pink, she says "Come to me, Firion," and the theme from Swan Lake starts up. And it only gets funnier from there.
Refia: I am thankful to Father for taking care of an orphan like me for all these years, but...this is something I have to do. Luneth: Wait...you're an orphan, too? Refia: "Too"? You mean— Arc: I'm one, too! Ingus: Wait a minute...I, too, have no parents...
After exposing the Fake King plot, Paladin Cecil can join in a dance with Baron's Dancing Girl. And in the DS version, it's absolutely hilarious; armor-clad, gallant, Bishounen Cecil copies all of the girl's movements; from the hops to the waves, to the hip thrusts. It tops even the Dancing Girl Surprise in Fabul.
The poor potion merchant who you have to protect several times. He freaks out every time a clan wants to buy his products and you see his sprite just spinning in circles. Another moment is when you find out that the people who have hired some monsters to steal Prima Donna merchandise is the Devotee and Devotee Jr.. When you beat them, your clan convinces them to try and be less enthusiastic about Prima Dona. The culprits' response? "WOOOO!!! LESS ENTHUSIASM!!!"
