[[WMG: [=FF16=] will have its graphics working upwards by console release.]]
It will first be released on the Switch where it'll have okay-above average graphics compensated by good gameplay, then the lastest X-box and [=PS5=] with improved graphics and finally, PC for a HD release.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: There will be a future FF title that will take place on the ruined worlds where Shinryu and Omega originated.]]
Acting as a sort of BelatedBackstory for them. We may even play as the heroes who fight to try and stop Shinryu before he destroys the world, who may or may not be responsible for the creation of Omega in an attempt to stop him. The ending of the game will be a ForegoneConclusion (or it'll be unclear from the start that this is the first world both entities are from) where the world will be destroyed.
** Midgardsormr, from ''FFXIV'', may even originate in this world, fleeing from it to Hydaelyn to escape its destruction with his seven eggs.


One species, featured heavily in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', have a more detailed, animalistic face and clothing and are the base species of Moogle/moguri. The more cartoonish, teddy-bear-faced mogs/moogles/Moguri with no clothes (easily seen in KingdomHearts) are related or arose by parallel evolution, and should more properly be called [[IncrediblyLamePun naked mole-bats]].

To prove this turn either world map upside down, it's the same, right down to crystal locations, minus some very possible continental shifts, Crescent island even still has the ancient civilization under it in the form of a bonus dungeon, it could very well be that DeRosso and Yulyanna found out about crystals regenerating upon reading texts talking about the events of FF V, and they're the only two games where you get a vehicle that doubles as a dungeon.

Late in Pern's history, medical and military science achieved "soft" SF levels; [[Franchise/StarTrek phasers, medical tricorders, etc.]] The only caveat was that the correct device needed be used for the correct ailment; a detoxifier wouldn't close a wound, neither would an ocular surgical laser purge poison, or an energy-suture heal blindness. Military robots were constructed, though primarily used commercially as security forces, with only a select few being equipped with superpowered weapons. Power sources were all [[Stargate ZPMs.]] The Pernian human race launched a massive military satellite, codenamed "Sky Fortress", to do away with this "thread" bullshit once and for all. [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu They destroyed the Red Star,]] [[BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu resulting in the unholy mother of all Threadfalls.]] Dragons and humans both were subsequently driven to near-extinction. In-development bioweapons, part of "Project Eidolon", broke free, some of them truly horrific in nature, such as "Lich", a project to extend human lifespan with nanotechnology that instead ended in BodyHorror. The robots became self-aware, concealing their nature from other creatures with dark robes and ridiculous hats. Because of the highly destructive and mysterious nature of their equipment, and their dark robes, they became known as "Black Wizards". A cult also sprung up around the healing tech; the "priests" became known as "White Wizards". Later on, some humans learned how to operate equipment from defunct Black Wizards, furthering the confusion. In any case, this is the reason spells are bought the way they are. The reason some individuals, IE Terra or most of the [=FF4=] cast, can cast spells naturally is due to descent from an Esper or Eidolon.

* First of all, this is [[ActorAllusion Self-explanatory]] since his appearance in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', but Creator/JohnDiMaggio's absence as of ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' perplexes me. Now, onto business - the main reason he's here in the first place because ExDeath was the one to summon him first as an indestructible henchman. One bump in the continuum later, Bender loses his memories on his way, and ExDeath dubs him something or other. (To be continued)

* It stands to reason that the world of FF8 has many, many more GF than the ones the party happens to stumble across during the storyline. And the Ultemania guide claims that even the GF known to use can take on a variety of forms. So in FF 8 Ramuh might either just hanging out somewhere off-screen (he might be the old guy in Timber who likes the water so much) or he's an alternate form of Quezacotl.
In FF10, he might be a fayth, but his temple was destroyed by Sin and he's lost deep below the oceans.

At the same time many FFs imply or outright state that there's a huge number of summons: Eiko mentions a tradition that at the age of 16 members of the summoner tribe are allowed to claim an Eidolon and go on adventure, would be difficult if there were only about 13 of the beasties, in VI and IV they are a whole tribe with a whole village and in [=FF8=] we can assume that each student of Balamb Garden has at least one GF(you don't get to see Xell's, Selphie's, Quistis' and Seifer's because of gameplay and story segregation)

In various Final Fantasies, the summons your party meets are either largely incidental or are approached/approach your party on purpose for one reason or the other (for example in FFIX Ramuh confronts Dagger over the business with Odin) and often, in those FFs where summons are portrayed as clearly sentient creatures at least, this ends with the summon voluntarily lending their powers to the party (and stating such) because they were impressed with their fighting ability.

So it stands to reason that most Final Fantasy worlds have a great number of summons more than the ones you get to meet and summon during the storyline and that some of these unseen summons are incarnations/versions of the summons from other games.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Final Fantasy XVI will be a PS5 launch title.]]
Given that if things are headed back to the traditional console generation length of five to six years, it'd make sense for Square Enix to take advantage of more cutting edge tech.

*To flip this theory, the cartoon moogles came first. The so-called Moogles of Final Fantasy XII originated as the remaster version of the Hummingways and later evolved pom-poms. The people of Ivalice dubbed them Moogles after they noticed the resemblance, and the name stuck.


Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Every Final Fantasy takes place on a different plane, and there are an infinite number of them.]]
Dissidia implies a whole multiverse of Final Fantasy worlds, all connected by the Rift. So every single version of each Final Fantasy game is canon. For example, Final Fantasy I has been re-released multiple times, and the re-releases are all versions of the same plane. Dissidia adds another two in the form of World A and World B. This is even more obvious in the case of the online games, which have multiple realms by default. If you wanted to take it even further, every new save game represents a new version of that plane. As a collorary, there are no true sequels: sequels take place on yet another version of the plane. That's why they don't always do a great job of matching the so-called original in tone or continuity - we literally never see the same plane twice. The history is only shared in BroadStrokes!


Our Earth was created at the end of the Final Fantasy XIII saga as a refuge for a dying world. Although intended to be free of the influence of magic and Chaos, a small dimensional merger causes the events of Final Fantasy Unlimited. A few decades afterward, this world is nearly annihilated by an extraterrestrial meteor that brings an army of ghosts with it. Humanity survives by the skin of its teeth, but also discovers its planet has a lifestream in the process.

*Bonus theory: The framing story of the Tactics Advance series takes place on Earth, not future Ivalice. The souls of Ivalice were migrated here by Ashley Riot in an attempt to save them from the spread of the Dark in his world.

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG:Ramuh does exist in [=FF8=] and [=FF10=].]]
The reason why he doesn't make any appearance is because he died of old age. So in summary, if he doesn't make any appearance in a final fantasy entry, it's because he's already dead.
