With the blessing of Agent I will now start with a rumble dedicated to Final Fantasy VI (in US-version Final Fantasy III, heh).
Due to the fact the topic music is already in a few rumbles ongoing, I thought I would start out with something little easier to overview, and chose as first topic Espers, the summons of FFVI.
My first attempt of rumbling will include 24 competitors out of the 27 Espers.
I removed Bahamut and Unicorn completely, seeing as Bahamut is fanboyed at and Unicorn is only a bit different to Kirin and Seraphim. The third removal is fusing Odin and Raiden into one entry, seeing as their attacks are pretty much the same and Raiden replaces Odin.
I will let the Espers fight in 3 brackets, and in the final round the three bracket winners will fight in a "free for all" round to find out whom of the three is the winner.
After this rumble we can think of another one. ^^

Oh, a few important informations:
1.) The encounters in the first rounds are determined randomly.
2.) Please set your vote in bold, so I can see it.
3.) I will update every 3-4 days.

Winners of Past Rumbles:
Espers
1. Maduin
2. Phoenix
3. Alexander

Locations
1. Opera House
2. Phantom Train

Bosses
1. Kefka
2. Ultros

Music
1. Terra's Theme
2. Cyan's Theme

______


Alright, enough rambling... let's get this started with the first round!

Bracket 1 - Fight 1

Kirin, the Chinese "unicorn". He casts Regen on all party members and teaches a few good spells, such as Cure 2 and Scan. In China, Kirins are said to bring luck. Maybe that luck will help him to win this round!

vs.

Tritoch, one of the strongest Espers you recieve in this game. He attacks with the Tri-Dazer, an attack of all three elements, and teaches the user the strongest elemental spells in the game: Fire 3, Ice 3 and Bolt 3.

My vote goes to Tritoch, simply because he looks beautiful and his power is way stronger than Kirin ever could dream of.

Glad we got this going. I'm going Kirin. I think it was one of the few summons from this game I actually used sometimes, plus I liked the spells that it taught.

Well, let's put this to an end!

Kirin - 4

Tritoch - 7

After the head to head race Tritoch reserved the victory for this round and therefore proceeds! So, let's take a look at the first bracket 2 fight. =)

Bracket 2 - Fight 1

Ramuh, one of the regulars in the pantheon of summons in Final Fantasy. This old wise man is the king of thunder, summoning the attack Bolt Fist. He also teaches the lower two Bolt-spells and Poison (however he got to that).

vs.

Seraphim, the beautiful angel. She casts Reviver, an HP recovery for all party members, and teaches useful White Magic, such as Life, Remedy and Cure 2.

FIGHT!!

My vote goes to Seraphim, because her healing spells saved me a lot, and her summon skill is far more useful than Ramuh's thunder attack.

04-29-2008, 11:23 AM
No problem, Ndi ^_^

Thank you for running this, Skunk!

Seraphim. See above stated reason.

Seraphim - 8

Clear victory for our angel, so she will move on to the next round! Allow me to use sprites for the Espers now, making it maybe a bit easier to pick.

Bracket 3 - Fight 1

http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b169/YenoHyena/ff6/siren.gif
Siren, the beautiful singer. In FF6, Siren casts Sleep on all enemies and hands several status changing spells such as Sleep (who would've guessed!), Mute and Slow, as well as Fire 1 (whyever she as a water creature has this...).

vs.

http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b169/YenoHyena/ff6/alexandr.gif
Alexander, who made his debut as summon in this game. He casts Justice on the enemies, which does heavy Holy damage, and teaches very useful spells such as Safe, Shell and Dispel, but also he's the only one to be able to give you the Black Magic called "Pearl", the only Black Magic which does Holy damage - and has a beautiful animation, too!

My vote in this round goes to Alexander, because his spells simply are way better than Siren's - even though he doesn't give any Level Up bonus.

Erebus Wraith

Although I rarely summon espers in FFVI tho.

I think you're not the only one. ^^
And I think we can start a new round... Let's see
Alexander - 10
Siren - 2

That's a pretty clear result. The machine of holy doom goes on and our poor Siren drowns in her own ocean. On to the next round!

Bracket 1, Fight 2

http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b169/YenoHyena/ff6/maduin.gif
Maduin, the father of the main character of FF6, Terra. He teaches Fire 2, Ice 2 and Bolt 2, and his attack Chaos Wing is one of the little summon attacks that do damage with no elemental alignment. He also adds to Magic Power as Level Bonus.

vs.

http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b169/YenoHyena/ff6/crusader.gif
Crusaders, the prototype to the Knights of the Round in FF7. They teach the powerful spells Meteor and Merton and add +50% MP as Level Bonus. Their Summon attack Purifier is a massive Fire attack and one of the most powerful attacks in the game with the whopping cost of 96 MP.

My vote goes to Maduin. Althoug he is not as powerful, he is important for the story and one of the couple of Espers which you actually get to know personality-wise... and I think he is a very lovable guy.

Hex Omega

Bracket 2, Fight 2

http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b169/YenoHyena/ff6/phantom.gif
Phantom, the spooky green ectoplasma mummy. He teaches Demi, Berserk and Vanish, adds +10% MP as Level Bonus. His summon skill "Fader" casts Vanish on all party members.

vs.

http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b169/YenoHyena/ff6/starlet.gif
Starlet, the beautiful goddess (?) of stars. She teaches all 3 Cures, Regen and Remedy, adds Stamina as Level Bonus and her summon skill with the very stylish name "Group Hug" cures all party members' HP.

To me, the choice is extremely hard. Starlet has more style, but without Phantom I wouldn't have made it through the Magi Tower... I'll pass this round.

Bracket 3, Battle 2!

http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b169/YenoHyena/ff6/bismark.gif
Bismark, the lord of the sea in Final Fantasy 6, who was named after the German battleship. This gigantic whale was the only magic way to deal water damage to an enemy with his attack "Sea Song". He adds Strength as Level Bonus, teaches Fire, Bolt and Ice in insanely speed, and also Life.

vs.

http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b169/YenoHyena/ff6/shoat.gif
Shoat, the ... swine. He joins along with his opponent and casts with his "Demon Eye" Break on all enemies. He teaches this spell, along with Bio and Doom, and adds +10% HP as a Level Bonus.

Bismark - 12
Shoat - 0

Bracket 1, Battle 3

http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b169/YenoHyena/ff6/shiva.gif
Shiva, one of the oldest classics in the series. She is the queen of ice and her attack "Gem Dust" does ice damage to all enemies. She teaches Ice, Ice 2, Osmose, Rasp and Cure, but gives no Level Bonus.

vs.

http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b169/YenoHyena/ff6/golem.gif
Golem, the artificial Esper, who can be purchased at the auction in Jidoor. His summon skill "Earth Wall" casts Safe on all party members. He teaches Safe, Stop and Cure 2, and adds Stamina as Level Bonus.

I'll go with Shiva, because this is one of her coolest incarnations in the series and she was way more useful to me than Golem.

Bracket 3, Battle 3


http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b169/YenoHyena/ff6/palidor.gif
Palidor, the rainbow coloured bird. His summon skill "Sonic Dive" picks up all party members to let them Jump attack like dragoons do in other Final Fantasy games. He has no Level Bonus, however teaches very powerful status magic, specifically said: Haste, Haste 2, Slow, Slow 2 and Float.

vs.

Terrato, the snake of earth. It's summon skill "Earth Aura" does Earth based damage on all enemies. While giving +30% HP as Level Bonus, he teaches the only Earth and Wind spells in the game, Quake and Whirlwind, as well as the all loved Quarter, which leaves only 25% (in other words: a Quarter) of the targetted enemy's HP.

http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b169/YenoHyena/ff6/ragnarok.gif
Ragnarok, the, uhm... sword. It's kind of a secret summon, and its skill "Metamorphosis" attempts to turn an enemy into an item. It adds no level bonus, and the only spell it teaches is Ultima.

vs.

Zoneseek, the, uhm... I can't even define what it is! It's gotten in Jidoor's auction just like Golem and its summon skill "Wall" casts a stronger version of "Shell" on all party members. It adds to Magic Power as level bonus and teaches Shell, Osmose and Rasp.

This is probably one of the strangest rounds... However, I'll go with Zoneseek, simply because Osmose was more useful to me than Ultima (MagiTower anyone?).

Ragnarok - 8

Bracket 3, Fight 4

http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b169/YenoHyena/ff6/odin.gif http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b169/YenoHyena/ff6/raiden.gif
Odin and Raiden, the two legendary knights. As said in the intro of this thread, I put them together because Raiden takes Odin's place after obtaining him and their attacks, Odin's "Atom Edge" and Raiden's "Turf Edge" both do the same: attempt to destroy all enemies. Odin however teaches Meteor and adds to Agility as Level Bonus, while his replacement Raiden adds to Strength and teaches the spell Quick.

vs.

http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b169/YenoHyena/ff6/carbunkl.gif
Carbuncle, the small little fuzzie with the gem in its head. It's a regular and its summon skill "Ruby Power" casts Reflect on all party members. Although no Level Bonus, it teaches an immense list of spells: Reflect, Haste, Shell, Safe and Warp.

I myself do the sympathy vote, so it goes to Carbuncle

Close victory for the cute green fluffy. He beats the team of the two uberknights and proceeds to the next round. This means ROUND 1 is OVER!
This means that the quarter-finals already start.

And with that, let's start it already.

Round 2 START!

Bracket 1, Fight 5

http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b169/YenoHyena/ff6/tritoch.gif
Tritoch, one of the strongest Espers you recieve in this game. He attacks with the Tri-Dazer, an attack of all three elements, and teaches the user the strongest elemental spells in the game: Fire 3, Ice 3 and Bolt 3. Also he adds to Magic Power as Level Bonus!

Maduin, the father of the main character of FF6, Terra. He teaches Fire 2, Ice 2 and Bolt 2, and his attack Chaos Wing is one of the little summon attacks that do damage with no elemental alignment. He also adds to Magic Power as Level Bonus.

Round 2, Fight 5

http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b169/YenoHyena/ff6/sraphim.gif
Seraphim, the beautiful angel. She casts "Reviver", an HP recovery for all party members, and teaches useful White Magic, such as Life, Remedy and Cure 2, and has no Level Bonus.

Alexander, who made his debut as summon in this game. He casts "Justice" on the enemies, which does heavy Holy damage, and teaches very useful spells such as Safe, Shell and Dispel, but also he's the only one to be able to give you the Black Magic called "Pearl", the only Black Magic which does Holy damage - and it has a beautiful animation, too!

Well, they had those cute little balls in white, black and grey (for the status changing magic), and Pearl has a black ball, so I can only assume it to be Black Magic.

It's very wierd. In the GBA version, Pearl has been renamed Holy. I can't remember the ball color tho- need to check. It'd be a hoot if Holy is black magic tho. I'd just vote Bismarck, as it is very useful early on in the game.
