        he spends the entire game whining about something though. Usually that he's hungry cause japan thought that was so funny in the 90's and 2000's

        I literally just finished replaying FFX yesterday, and he never struck me as whiny. Maybe I'm a bit desensitized since I deal with actual whiny teens fairly often IRL, but Tidus actually spends the entire game trying to be supportive and lighthearted. The whole "I'm hungry" part is only at the beginning when he's alone before he even meets the Al Bhed, and it's because he's actually starving to death until they show up and fees him. The only other big complaints I remember him having are:
        Auron not telling him what's going on at the beginning.
        Everyone not telling him what they knew about Yuna's fate despite letting him become a guardian and say all that "after we beat Sin" stuff.
        Complaining that someone trying to kill them is a dick move.

        If anyone stood out as particularly whiny, I would say it's Wakka. He constantly bitches about the Al Bhed and Yevon's teachings literally up to the actual end of the game. And all the other characters, even Tidus, have to remind him to cool off about it every time. Wakka has some good traits though, just like Tidus does.

          I'm gonna be honest with you anon: I haven't played ffx in at least a decade and concede that I could and probably am misremembering how much tidus bitches about being hungry.

            Tidus comes off as annoying because he does typical JRPG Shonen protagonist things. You know what I'm talking about. Overreacting to relatively simple stuff. I GOTTA TELL WAKKA! Climbing all over shit. Basically acting like an 8 year old at times. But it was the early 2000s when that sort of trope was at its highest. I can't blame Tidus for being a product of his time.

            That said in between those moments Tidus does serve his role of questioning why Spira is the way it is. It wouldn't have worked if it was any other character because Final Fantasy 10 is Anime 1984. All of the people who would be ingrained in that world would have also been brought up to never question their circumstances. A plot point that's directly addressed by the game itself.

            >Lulu: Sin is the punishment for, and the incarnation of, crimes we have committed.
            >Tidus: Hmm. So, no one really knows what it is?
            >Lulu: There’s no need to know, so no one asks. You run or you fight. That is really all you can do. There’s no sense brooding over it.
            >Tidus: What, that’s all? I mean, you don’t even wonder?
            >Lulu: (Chuckles) You really do come from a world where there is no Sin, like you say.

              I blame the voice directing or lack thereoff. Tidus is a fucking 19 year old professional athlete. There is NO excuse for him to be played as soft at all. He needs to swagger at least to the level Squall did. His original jap VA/VA director understood this.

                No I think his over exuberant personality was intentional. To juxtapose the emotional Lobster that is Yuna. But I also think that it's way too much. If Tidus was a 10 then he needed to turn it down to an 8. Which ironically is what we get post Bevelle.

              Just because you brought this up. Did you know that the story establishes there have only been FOUR CALMS in the past thousand years?
              In light of that, the Church of Yevon is 100% justified in their behavior.
              Seriously, imagine that, only 40/1000 years have had any semblance of peace.

                Well that also reinforces why everybody is so sold out for the religion of Yevon. No one has a reliable means of killing Sin. The final summoning was never going to work but no one knows that. I can't blame everyone for investing in the solution that might work versus Al Bhed and the Crusaders who's search for a true solution has literally never worked in 1,000 years. Which hey that was a plot point too

                >Auron: A swift retreat. Satisfied?
                >Kinoc: What do you mean?
                >Auron: Those who turned from Yevon died, while the faithful live on.
                >Kinoc: Hmm. The past ten years have changed you, I see.

                Everyone who attempted to kill Sin without the Final Summoning ended up dead or so dejected that they immediately invested in Yevon. There are even Al Bhed refugees begging to serve Yevon after Operation Mi'hen went tits up. And Yevon was right there ready to be the glorious heroes who took in all those poor misguided people who wanted to find their way again. Never waste a good catastrophe.

                Yeah, operation Mi'ihen was a totally failure on a conceptual level. The job of the crusaders is to bait and repel Sin, not to the defeat it. Let's say they did burst a hole through his armor, like Yuna's team does at the end of the game. Then what? Jecht isn't calmed. Further, the "Hymn of the Faith" plan is totally non-repeatable and could have killed EVERYONE. Imagine if they'd been five seconds later and Sin blasted Bevelle with gigagraviton, a skill he always had and could have used at any time.

                Operation Mi'ihen was a bad idea but I understand why they tried it. Sin keeps coming back. Nobody wants to live in a world where they can be vaporized any day for no reason at all other than they had the audacity to live nearby water. The purpose of Yevon isn't even to improve things, just to maintain the status quo and make certain things don't get worse

                >Mika: Men die. Beasts die. Trees die. Even continents perish. Only the power of death truly commands in Spira. Resisting its power is futile.
                >Yuna: But what of Sin? I am a summoner, my lord, like my father before me! I am on a pilgrimage to stop the death that Sin brings. Are you… Are you telling me that, too, is futile? Grand Maester Mika, I am not alone! All the people who have opposed Sin… Their battles, their sacrifices– were they all in vain?
                >Mika: Not in vain. No matter how many summoners give their lives, Sin cannot be truly defeated. The rebirth cannot be stopped. Yet the courage of those who fight gives the people hope. There is nothing futile in the life and death of a summoner.
                >Auron: Never futile… but never ending.
                >Mika: Indeed, that is the essence of Yevon.
                >Yuna: Lord Mika!
                >Mika: Yevon is embodied by eternal, unchanging continuity, summoner.
                >Yuna: No…that can’t be right!
                >Mika: Those who question these truths– they are traitors!

                I can totally understand why a sect of people would say "fuck this shit we need to find something else." It's just that Operation Mi'ihen was a risk that didn't pan out.

                How long does the Calm last, though? We're never told that Sin only reforms every ten years. Just that Braska and Co. defeated Sin ten years ago.

                Apparently the Calms were getting shorter with each kill

                1st Calm = 400 years
                2nd Calm = 230 years
                3rd Calm = 100 years
                4th Calm (Braska and Jecht's) = 10 years

                Yuna's Calm probably would've lasted like a year and that's it.

              It's crazy because her level of self-sacrifice honestly ludicrous. Which was actually part of the problem and why she needed someone like Tidus to influence her. Because Yuna would have given up and accepted anything in the name of peace even if it meant dying or hooking up with a known murderer. And while she ended up deciding that she was going to have everything her way or not at all, that still meant that she was going to put an end to Sin even if that meant standing against the only constant in her life. Most people could not do that.

                Tidus doesn't get what she's actually saying. From his perspective, he thinks she's just talking about forcing herself to remain steady and upbeat when Sin's causing harm, not pretending to be happy to avoid thinking about ritual suicide.

                Without knowing the stakes it should be even stranger, but it's not that she's pretending to be happy to avoid thinking about the suicide that bothers me though. It's that she's pretending to be happy so Other People don't worry about Sin and her ritual suicide. She's truly fucked in the head, everything is put before herself, it's inhuman.

                Congratulations you've properly defined the thing she has to overcome for her character arc. Yuna is selfless to the point of being suicidal. Because that's what she was taught as a priestess. Summoners are intended to give their lives for the peace of everyone else without question. That's why Tidus was necessary for her. Because Tidus is her opposite, he's a selfish brat that wants everything to go his way. And he rubs off on her, to the point where she goes from willing to marry Seymour if it makes everyone else happy to telling Yunalesca to go fuck herself because her fake peace isn't good enough for her. The same way Tidus goes from thinking summoner self sacrifice is incomprehensible to willing to sacrifice himself by the end. Both their values are learned by the other.

      I agree wholeheartedly. I've never seen such an inoffensive character cause so much ass pain. He's a genuinely cool guy. Kimahri's first encounter with him is to try and assault him out of nowhere, and Tidus still is like "Tell those guys to eat shit." when he sees Yenke and Biran picking on him.

      The laughing scene in particular getting criticized gets me.

      >Tidus is presented as an openly emotional person
      >Yuna is presented as a reserved person with her actual feelings
      >Tidus finds out his dad is a whale monster destroying the world and is told to keep that under wraps

      >Yuna tries to get him to fake laugh/smile, because that's her coping mechanism
      >it doesn't work for Tidus until he starts exaggerating his laughter
      >Yuna is initially horrified, but joins in once she sees how much fun Tidus is having with it

        It's not even just that. Yuna copes by pretending to be happy. But after she finds out about Yevon and loses everything, she breaks for the only time in the entire game other than the ending. Tidus gives her an out. Quit the Pilgrimage. Live with him. Have a life. And she seriously considers it. And for a moment she can't fake being happy. She has a confront the fact that she has no future. The fact that her life's purpose is destroying Sin means she'll never get to do all the things she realized she wanted to do along this adventure. And she'll never get to spend her life with somebody she came to love. She has nothing and never will have anything and no amount of fake laughter and pretending will change that.

        So yeah that laughing scene ended up coming full circle like 10 hours later. Except the memesters who didn't play the game don't know about that.

        It would have been cute and I totally get their intention, but execution is everything. It's like if a skater intends to perform a maneuver and slips on a banana peel and falls on his butt, you can see what he was going for but you can't judge it on his intention alone, you can only judge it based on what was actually performed. Maybe in Japanese the scene is more tolerable, but with Teedus' English voice acting it was doomed to failure.

                Wonder where in the world something like that is regular. From my perspective he looks extra faggy and punchable.

                Come on gays, his clothes come from another fucking planet. It's nice to see some originality for once instead of the boring ass generic vaguely-medieval armor most rpg protags are wearing

                >dyed and styled hair
                Is there a scene where he dyes it? Or a scene where his hair is even a different color? Or is that just you making shit up? Because even in flashbacks to being a little kid Tidus has the same blonde hair. It just looks long and unkempt, not styled at all.

      IT wasn't that big a deal. The overworld maps in past FFs had nothing to do anyway besides the same couple of extra areas that we got in FFX.

      Steering a mini airship around a big green empty field while the entire pacing and structure of the game is STILL just as linear is not very impressive to me. FF was always linear, X just replaced the boring green tilesets with actual environmental backgrounds.

    Its dumb because I was gonna say Tidus is judged by his first 10 hours or so and people don't seem to realise he goes through something known as character development. Then I realised people do the same shit for Cloud, Squall, Lightning, Pretty much all of XIII. Its like people just characters for how they are at the beginning. Do people just not complete the games? Characters have to have flaws in order to develop and better themselves, do people not want character development?

      Well in order for me to judge a character fairly I have to not only watch what they do but also understand why they did it. And also understand that people don't do things in the vacuum but as a response to their circumstances in relation to character traits they already had. But that sounds hard. And it's a lot easier for me to just say Tidus whined too much because he woke up in a place he didn't recognize surrounded by a culture he never heard of and didn't understand.

      I'm not saying there are no bad characters or that Tidus didn't annoy me at times. But Jesus he isn't anywhere near as bad as the memesters who speak purely in hyperbole would lead you to believe. Also his relationship with Yuna is one of the few JRPG romances I actually like.

        Ff10 in general has probably the most one note/tropey characters in the whole series, which is highlighted in aspects like their battle roles e.g Lulu is the black mage/cold tsundere, Yuna white mage/innocent sweetheart. All the main characters are extremely cringey stereotypes, with maybe the exception of Rikku who is a ditzy valley girl but also against type a top notch mechanic.

        Voice acting is a plague on the industry and has hindered every FF that's included it. The writing is less ridiculous when it's not voiced.

        It's 'fashion' straight from the belt buckle planet, part of the Nomura dimension. It's not very original if you've played a kingdom hearts game (which I wouldn't recommend) and perfectly captures that awful early 2000's period of style. It's garish and reminiscent of the 90's comic aesthetic which was all about excess for the sake of excess, with pouches fucking everywhere.

      He's so weird as a character that I can't understand his motivation because his actions are directly against his stated goals. He needs Yuna to turn him into an Aeon so he can become Sin, but then he also keeps trying to kill Yuna? Shit makes no sense.

        Did you forget how Seymour was grooming her to be his personal Yunalesca? He was never going to just let turn march to Bevelle and talk to Mika. Yes Seymour allowed Yuna time to think about her answer to the wedding but he also had Tromell pick her up and escort her under guard to Macalania.

        >Seymour's plan made no sense

        His plan makes sense within the world of Spira. People don't die when they are killed. Instead they either move on to the Farplane or they stick around as ghosts until their envy of the living turns them into monsters. Everyone is miserable in Spira because they're afraid of Sin and they don't want to die but as far as Seymour is concerned being dead is great. You don't have to worry about anything and you can still hang out in the world. So fuck it. Turn into Sin, kill literally everyone, and then they no longer have to worry about dying. If you want to fuck off to the Farplane you can do that. If you want to just stay in Spira you can do that too. There's no living to be envious of anymore so you don't have to worry about turning into fiends.

        Also the parallel where Seymour is also able to turn pyreflies into armor in order to fight. So while he compared himself to Zaon, in reality he's the second coming of Yu Yevon

          Also also even if they went to Mika, which Seymour probably would not have let them, Mika doesn't give a fuck about that so long as it doesn't disturb the order of Yevon

          >Mika: Men die. Beasts die. Trees die. Even continents perish. Only the power of death truly commands in Spira. Resisting its power is futile.
          >Yuna: But what of Sin? I am a summoner, my lord, like my father before me! I am on a pilgrimage to stop the death that Sin brings. Are you… Are you telling me that, too, is futile? Grand Maester Mika, I am not alone! All the people who have opposed Sin… Their battles, their sacrifices– were they all in vain?
          Mika: Not in vain. No matter how many summoners give their lives, Sin cannot be truly defeated. The rebirth cannot be stopped. Yet the courage of those who fight gives the people hope. There is nothing futile in the life and death of a summoner.
          >Auron: Never futile… but never ending.
          >Mika: Indeed, that is the essence of Yevon.
          >Yuna: Lord Mika!

    Lighting was a turbo bitch
    Noctis felt like he had no agency in the plot, everything he did was because someone else told him to do it, even killing himself

    I liked Tidus, but then again I'm a Chad. Seems like incel betas hate Tidus for some reason, probably because he's a cool athletic dude and has a gf
