Drinking Game / Final Fantasy

Go To

Could Final Fantasy, being so beer-chuggingly popular, have enough elements to make a drinking game out of? Well yes. Be wary, because depending on the game, some of these will definitely kill you.

Games with their own drinking game pages (though the general rules still apply to them):

  • Take a sip if a party member levels up.
  • Take a shot if you encounter one of the following:
    • A Cactuar.
      • Take a shot if it uses 1,000 Needles.
      • Down the whole drink if it uses 10^x Needles, where x is >= 4.
    • A Malboro.
    • A Tonberry.
      • Take two shots if it kills you with its knife.
    • A Behemoth or any Behemoth variant.
    • Any type of Bomb.
      • Take a shot if it uses Self-Destruct.note 
  • Start chuggingnote  if you or the enemy does an attack with an extremely long animation, and don't stop until the animation ends. Alternatively, use the animation time to take a bathroom break, because you're probably holding in a lot from all the alcohol you've been downing.
  • Take a shot for every enemy defeated or party member killed.
  • Take three, four, or five shots (depending on how many max party members in-battle a game has) if all of your party members end up dying.note 
  • Take two shots when you decide to fight a game's respective superboss on purpose.
    • Toast if you beat the superboss you decided to face.
  • Take a shot every time any character is afflicted with a buff or status ailment. If multiple characters are afflicted, take one for each character. If characters are afflicted with multiple ailments, finish your drink, but down the bottle if it's because of Bad Breath.
  • Take a shot for every enemy encounter you get when trying to walk to an item or location visible on screen.
  • Take a shot every time you use a Phoenix Down or any Life spell.
  • Take a drink when you start riding a Chocobo.
  • Take a shot each time you or an enemy does 9999 damage or above.
    • Suicide Mode: If any multi-hit attack does 9999 damage or above per hit, take a shot with each hit.
  • Down the whole drink if an enemy's attack causes a Total Party Kill. Does not count if you're fighting superbosses (aside from Emerald Weapon, where it requires Materia to fall to one).
