From Final Fantasy Tactics

    Ramza Beoulve 

Voiced by: Shinnosuke Tachibana (Japanese), Phil La Marr (English)

"What stokes the fires of this conflict?"

The protagonist of Final Fantasy Tactics. Ramza was a squire and the youngest son of the noble Beoulve family. After witnessing first-hand the classism of the noble caste, he forsook his lineage to become a mercenary, becaming embroiled in an Ancient Conspiracy that threatened the foundation of Ivalice itself.

Ramza is a Specialist-type fighter that specializes in buffing his allies. His gimmick is the Focus skill, which allows him to charge up his EX Skills more quickly. His EX Skill, Galvanize and Shout, grants either a powerful Status Buff to Ramza's allies, or a more potent one to Ramza himself, while simultaneously greatly empowering his attacks.

  • Animal Motifs: In Ramza's Heroic Heretic costume his chestplate has an image of a bull printed on it, symbolic of the animals sacrificial and martyr aspects.
  • Advertised Extra: Despite getting a good amount of coverage after his reveal, Ramza does not appear in the story mode for NT until later updates.
  • Badass Cape: He wears a cape in his default outfit and one has to be badass to tango in a game like Dissidia.
  • Battlecry: Ramza's EX Skills are to apply Status Buff using Shout and Galvanize. Shout is the hearty scream variant and while Galvanize is an encouraging phrase.
  • Bishōnen: Par for the course in a Final Fantasy game, but Ramza gets extra points for having the face of a porcelain doll.
  • Breakable Weapons: Not his primary swords, but Chirijiraden uses the namesake katana's Iaido ability, and the end of the animation has the blade shatter. Where Ramza got enough of a weapon hidden in Midlight's Deep to fire off this HP attack indiscriminately is anyone's guess.
  • Cooldown Manipulation: Ramza's reliance on his EX Skills is helped by his ability to use Focus and reduce the amount of time he has to wait to use them.
  • Cool Sword: He wields the swords from his origin game, also uses the Chirijiraden for its aptly named HP Attack.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Ramza's alternate outfit is a dark violet suit of armor with spikey ornamentation, of course being Ramza, this doesn't really effect his morality.
  • Defiant Stone Throw: One of his HP attacks is Stone, with which be bends down, picks up a pebble, and flings it at the enemy.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Even by Final Fantasy's standards he is very pretty.
  • Energy Ball: His Ultima spell is a globe of energy he can drop on enemies from above.
  • Gratuitous English: Ramza call his HP Attacks including the two with English names.
  • Holy Hand Grenade: Ramza has the White Mage's Holy spell as one of his HP Attacks.
  • Idiot Hair: Ramza has not lost his hair antennae in the transition to 3D.
  • Impossible Hourglass Figure: As a hold over from the art style of Final Fantasy Tactics, Ramza is still sporting one despite being a guy (no matter how pretty).
  • Improvised Weapon: Among Ramza's skills, there is the Stone ability which does exactly what one would expect. When charged with Shout he forgoes the rock and just shoots an Energy Ball from his sword instead.
  • Irony: In Tactics, Ramza stopped associating himself with other high-status individuals. In a post-Final Boss cutscene in Dissidia NT, he ends up travelling with... Noctis and Cecil.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Ramza carries one, but its purely for using the spell of the magical spirit sealed inside it. Just like the skill the user doesn't need to be wielding it to use it for an attack, just have it on them.
  • Leitmotif: His trailer is scored to a remastered version of "Antipyretic" from his home game, which itself is a combat remix of Ramza's personal theme.
  • Lost in Translation: Several of Ramza's attack names have different translations from their counterpart in Tactics such as Galvanize (Steel) and Earth Render (Shockwave).
  • Magma Man: One of his HP Attacks is the Monk's Earth Render skill, summoning rock and lava to spill forth from a fissure by way of an uppercut.
  • Magic Knight: Ramza fights primarily with a sword, but also has a few magic spells under his sleeve, from the Ultima spell as a Bravery attack to the White Mage spell Holy.
  • Master of None: Under normal circumstances, Ramza has a very varied movepool with a close, mid and long ranged attack for both the ground and the air but are fairly feeble. But when he uses Shout and powers up his strength and speed boost brings him closer to being a Lightning Bruiser.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • Ramza's rapier actually comes from his character artwork rather than being an equipable weapon from his home game. note 
    • Ramza's Bravery attacks and EX Skills all come from his Squire class, but his four HP Attacks are borrowed from other classes - the Knight's Enerverate the White Mage's Holy, Monk's Earth Render, and Samurai's Chirijiraden. A Squire with Arts of War, White Magicks, Martial Arts, or Iaido was entirely possible in Tactics.
    • His use of Shout as a way to buff his moveset is an allusion to one of the most infamous ways of using Ramza back in Tacticsa, which involve using Shout to buff his abilities so he becomes more powerful then he normally was.
    • Ramza's Enerverate debuffs the persons stats after being hit by it, which references the Knight's Rend skills, which involved striking and either decreasing the target's stats, or destroying an equipment item.
    • Upon using Chirijiraden the ending animation shows the katana vanish and rocky chunks fly out from where it was. The Draw Out skill had a chance to break the katana being used, it was 15% for every one, implying that Ramaza had the same happen to him each time he uses it.
  • The Noseless: Averted; according to Tetsuya Nomura, there was actually a debate over whether or not to retrain this trait from Tactics. On one side, it's considered an iconic and memorable element of Akihiko Yoshida's art style and part of the original game's charm. In the end, though, they decided that having a somewhat realistic-looking 3D character without a nose would just look too weird.
  • Petal Power: Ramza's Enervate skill will unleash a bunch of black, red and yellow flower petals when it hits an enemy.
  • Playing with Fire: The Chirijiraden HP Attack unleashes a cloud of blue fire from a katana.
  • Power Creep, Power Seep: Probably the largest case amongst the cast, due to the nature of his home game which gave him such abilities as throwing rocks and shouting inspirational words.
  • Rebel Prince: Well, rebel noble, at least. Seeing how other nobles treated those of lower class did not sit well with him. When Vaan inquires about him being highborn, Ramza immediately declares that "birth is neither high nor low".
  • Royal Rapier: Ramza wields one as his default weapon, befitting his noble status. Amusingly its called the Broadsword when selecting weapon types.
  • Screaming Warrior: When in Shout mode, Ramza's kiai's become very loud.
  • Short Hair with Tail: Rocks the rat-tail hairdo like Firion and the Onion Knight. Averted in his second and third costumes where his hair has been cropped short.
  • Shoulders of Doom: His Mercenary outfit has some spiky pauldrons.
  • Slice-and-Dice Swordsmanship: Ramza has only a few attacks where he will actually thrust with his rapier, he primarily uses it for slashing. Naturally this is averted when using the Platinum Sword, Rune Blade, Excalibur or Ragnarok which are more standard arming swords.
  • Standard Status Effects: Enervate will inflict Deprotect, Debrave and Slow if all three slashes hit.
  • Status Buff: Ramza's specialty which comes in two varieties, Shout which will buff himself or Galvanize which will buff his allies.
  • The Squire: He's even in his initial cadet's uniform rather than his mercenary or heretic armor.
  • Suddenly Voiced: At least in Japanese, since the PSP English version of the game he came from had voice acting, but the Japanese one did not.
  • Super Mode: Shout empowers all of Ramza's skills by a significant margin, allowing him to be a Lightning Bruiser along the lines of Tidus.
  • Sword Beam: Ramza can use both the arc of energy and bolt from sword tip varieties when he has the Shout status, changing Reaper to Sword Flash and Cast Stones to Astral Munition.
  • Sword and Fist: Paired with Ramza's sword fighting skills and magicks is his amazing ability to... tackle people.
  • Underwear of Power: Ramza's Heroic Heretic costume has him wear a leather codpiece over his trousers.

From Final Fantasy Type-0


Voiced by: Yuuki Kaji (Japanese), Jonathon McClendon (English)

"I wonder, who should I bet on?"

The Decoy Protagonist of Final Fantasy Type-0. Ace was one of twelve children adopted and raised as human weapons by the mysterious Archsorceress Arecia Al-Rashia in preparation for Operation Apostle, a prophecy in which, upon Tempus Finis, the legendary Class Zero rise up and become the Agito to save the world from the brink of annihilation.

Ace is a Marksman-type fighter who focuses on diversionary tactics by peppering enemies with barrages of projectiles and traps at multiple speeds. His EX Skill, Cut Cards, allows him to draw four different types of colored cards with effects varying from attack, stunning, healing or support depending on what color and how many cards are drawn.

  • Advertised Extra: Much like Ramza, his reveal was a big deal since he's one of only three new characters added to the roster from the first two games. But also like Ramza, he isn't included in the game's story mode at all until later updates.
  • Badass Cape: Which is a part of his school uniform, the red color marks him as a member of the legendary Class Zero.
  • Beam Spam: Jackpot Shot returns firing four laser beams at an enemy at once.
  • Bling of War: Ace's second color schemes for his Winter Uniform is the Type-0 HD Gold Mantle, which includes medals for service.
  • Cards of Power: Ace's cards are his weapon as well as a tool to aid him in casting spells.
  • Death Dealer: His weapon is a deck of playing cards that can be thrown at enemies in barrages and controlled with magic. His alternate weapons the Akademeia Deck have a phoenix printed on them, while his Reaper's Tarot has a shinigami printed on it.
  • Energy Ball: The Smart Cards spell fires one that is generated around a card.
  • Fire, Ice, Lightning: He has Fire RF (Rifle), Blizzard BOM (Bomb) and Thunder SHG (Shotgun) as his first three HP attacks. These spells can be charged to both -ra and -ga levels.
  • Flash Step: Although he isn't able to Teleport Spam like he does in his home game, he retains his Wild Card attack which allows him to teleport and attack to a card he has thrown.
  • Flechette Storm: Ace's Flourish attack fires four barrages of sharp flying cards at the enemy.
  • Flying Weapon: His Cards can be controlled by magic rather then actually thrown.
  • The Gambler: Ace has an element of chance to his playstyle through his Cut Cards EX Skill; his card-throwing abilities have card Theme Naming as well. As in his home game, he has a couple Gabianni-esque lines to go with his weapon.
  • Having a Blast: After drawing red cards with his Cut Cards ability Ace can use them to launch or direct energy explosions on enemies with the Burst ability.
  • Healing Hands: Ace is capable of healing the bravery and HP of himself and his allies with the Charge ability when he draws blue cards.
  • Homing Laser: Jackpot Shot fires four of them at enemies.
  • Military Mage: The forces of Rubrum like Ace are primarily sorcerers due to the blessings of the Vermillion Bird Crystal. His spells are even given classifications based on firearms.
  • Momma's Boy: The children of Class Zero are absolutely and completely devoted to Arecia Al-Rashia. Ace's default 'praise' line is "Even Mother would've been impressed!"
  • Mythology Gag
    • His two alternate palettes for his Summer Uniform change his cape to blue and pink. Machina Kunagiri transferred to Class Zero from Class Second, whose cadets wore blue capes; Rem Tokimiya transferred from Class Seventh, whose cadets wore pink capes.
    • One of his calls for Cut Cards, as well as the name of one of his Bravery attacks, is "Ante Up!" - famously spoken by Setzer Gabbiani, the last FF gambler to appear outside of his own game.
  • Painfully Slow Projectile: His Ante Up ability launches a magic charged card which slowly stalks enemies allowing him to set them up for attacks while they are followed by the tenacious projectile.
  • Pillar of Light: The aptly named Monolith Beam HP Attack is a gigantic pillar of light style laser.
  • Playing Card Motifs: Ace is littered with them from his name, weapon, attack names and EX Skill.
  • Power Floats: Ace can float while attacking giving him better mobility.
  • School Uniforms Are the New Black: Ace's outfit is his uniform for Akademia, a Wizarding School; the standard is his Winter Uniform, while his alt is the Summer Uniform. The uniforms being designed by Tetsuya Nomura naturally have belt straps instead of buttons.
  • Sibling Team: He mentions his family in dialogue, pointing out its difficult for him to trust teammates that aren't his family. This endears him to Firion, Zidane and Vaan who come from similar backgrounds, working with people they have come to view as their siblings.
  • Squishy Wizard: Ace's ability to cover the field with projectiles of varying speeds make him very dangerous and difficult to avoid but his lack of close ranged spells make him vulnerable to enemies who can make it through his onslaught.
  • Status Buff: Ace can raise the attack and defense of himself and his allies by drawing yellow cards with his Cut Cards ability.
  • Time Stands Still: Ace can freeze enemies with time magic by drawing black cards with his Cut Cards ability.
  • Trap Master: Ace can set up rigged cards to trigger a magical attack whenever enemies approach them with his Spiral Gambit attack.
