Trivia / Final Fantasy V

  • Fan Nickname:
    • NED: NeoExdeath, via Fun with Acronyms.
    • Cutezerker: Krile as a Berserker, since she looks like she's wearing tiger-themed pajamas.
    • Pajama Mage/Santa Mage: Geomancer outfits are very comfortable looking and feature Santa-esque Nice Hats.
  • Fan Translation: The SNES game was translated by fans and released before the PlayStation version came out, and considered far better than the official one, at least until the GBA version.
  • Game Mod: Besides the Fan Translation, there's also a mod that adds in the Ancient Cave, which in itself has a Fan Translation.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • In the concept phase for the game, Exdeath had two designs, one of which ended up being discarded. If Square had not chosen for the villain to be a Tin Tyrant, he would have been a Demonic Centaur. Parts of his alternate look ended up being incorporated to Neo Exdeath.
    • Also, early in development, Kelger was going to be human.
    • Minor boss Magissa's design was a prototype for Lenna. The final design has fair hair and longer robes.
    • It was originally planned for a US release under the name Final Fantasy III (which, of course, eventually became the number for VI abroad), and then a later attempt under the name Final Fantasy Extreme, due to the Job system being so much more in-depth than what the average RPG fan was used to.
