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):

NOTE: Enemy, attack, character, and class/job names may vary from game to game and (in the case of remakes/translations) version to version.

    open/close all folders 
  • Take a sip if a party member levels up.
  • Take a shot if you encounter one of the following:
    • A Cactuar.
      • Take another 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 a sip for every step it takes.
      • Take two shots if it kills a party member with Chef's Knife.
        • In games where Chef's Knife does not instantly kill, take a single shot when you're hit by it.
      • Take a shot if it uses Karma.
    • A Behemoth or any Behemoth variant.
    • Any type of Bomb.
      • Take a shot if it uses Self-Destruct.
    • An Adamantoise or any Adamantoise variant.
  • 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. Don't do this when fighting Superbosses, because that will probably end in alcohol poisoning.
    • Down the whole drink if an enemy's attack causes a Total Party Kill. Again, don't do this if you're fighting superbosses (Emerald WEAPON is an optional case of this, since it requires Materia to fall to one).
  • Take two shots when you decide to fight a game's respective superboss(es) on purpose.
    • Toast if you beat the superboss(es) 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.
  • 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.
  • In games with a Fat Chocobo, take a shot when you make one appear.
  • 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.
  • Take a shot every time you meet/see a character named Cid, then prepare a second shot glass. Take that second shot when he's shown captaining an airship.

  • If a citizen of Mysidia does something detrimental to you as an act of revenge, take a shot.
  • If playing the 3D versions (DS, PC, mobile), take a shot when someone yells and it catches you off guard (I.E. Rydia saying "Leave me alone! I HATE YOU!!").
  • Take a shot if Kain does something stupid or evil.
    • Two if he wasn't mind-controlled by Golbez at that point.
  • If facing the Demon Wall, down the whole drink if you run out of time.
  • Toast when Rydia does her Big Damn Heroes moment against Golbez.
  • Take four shots when Zeromus uses Big Bang.
