Okay so basically i've been hearing people whine and complain about Tidus being annoying in FFX and Dissidia.

Do you personally think he's annoying or do you actually like him?

I like him alot. He ranked #3 in my top 50 FF characters video. I dont know why people hate him.

Well Zidane is also very upbeat and evern before FF7 we had Bartz who was also very happy and cheerful. Aslo Tidus is very relatable imo. He handles his problems like any other normal human being would.

@MoD: I will PM the videos to you, there are 5 parts.

Zidane was also one of the upbeat character. After replaying FF9 again i find him funny. Especially with scenes that involve Vivi.

Anyway back to Tidus, I remember James Arnold Taylor wished he could redo the voice of Tidus in FFX again because alot of people were complaining about the voice acting.

There are some bad bits with Tidus such as the line "With Yuna by my side." He said it real quick. Alot of people seem to be bothered by the infamous laugh scene, Although it was intended to be an overexaggerated laugh that sounded stupid.

As for the character itself, I understand his situation where he asks too much questions and complains about so many things.

Tidus came in a world he doesn't know anything or anyone, The only person he knew was Auron.

Later on Tidus did mature somewhat and adjusted to the world Spira.
This is somewhat my speculation to Tidus.

I at first was very annoyed by Tidus in FF10. But I grew to really like Tidus a lot. He is easily one of my favorite FF characters now. Not only that but FF10 really was a pretty good play. I only had a problem with the grid sphere thing. Only problem I had with the game overall. In fact I am looking into playing it again. XD Tidus and Auron really made this game enjoyable for me in the end.

Actually Tidus's voice is superb, i guess JAT just had a hard time delivering the lines while making sure the lip syncing was on point. I never have a problem with voice acting unless it is utterly horrible, which usually isnt the case.

I dont hate Tidus, I just find him annoying at times, but its because of bad voice acting (when he yells and laughs, etc.), if its muted, hes fine haha :) When he talks normally hes fine too, while fighting, etc.

I liked Tidus because he narrated his story. It made him seem much more involved in the series beyond just being a main character.

He was very flawed as a person, but he also had the very normal way of interacting with people, which balanced out a lot of his shortcomings.

And it was nice to see a jock who wasn't a complete dickhole.

It's really jading to see such a wuss of jock. He's always crying, and when he's not crying he's relatively pissing people off. He's still not the worst main character of FF. That title actually goes to Squall, a person whose only major character development was him talking to himself a lot less.

Honestly I liked that laughing scene, it was stupid and awkward.

Honestly the only reason he bothered me at first was because of my initial reaction of seeing the main character's picture:

http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g289/Aevitas7/tidus.jpg

*What was going on in my head 8 years ago after seeing this picture and watching the first trailer for the game*
"Oooooh look at me! My name's Tidus, but it's supposed to be pronounced wrong according to the narrator guy, like Tee-dus because of some weird pronunciation (possibly localization) error! I'm cool because I'm going for that Ganguro fad look that Japanese people love so much and I have cool pants because one pant leg is longer than the other and asymmetry is cool! And this smile? It looks weird because it was superglued on by the CG modelers! I just can't get it off even if I tried!"

For those who don't know, Ganguro is when Japanese people tan their skin and dye their hair blond to mimic the look of California people.. usually girls, but guys do it too.

I've gotten used to how he looks now though and don't really have any issue with him. His cheerfulness is fine, and it seems that every other Cosmos character says he seems to be the most cheerful.

Because of that, I always enjoy going back to this scene for giggles:
YouTube - Dissidia - Destiny Odyssey 106 (English) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5O3mnyjndc)

Most cheerful person grouped with the two most awkward conversationalists in the series. Nice.

Heh... I always thought he was going for the whole Sports jocky meets J-pop artist look 8 years ago *Gasp has it really been 8 years...

Yeah, 8 years ago PS2 was a shiny new system. I still play it randomly (and it still works!) but it's been a long time since I played a RPG on it. I've wanted to play X-2 just for completion's sake but it would be a game I get into knowing already that I wouldn't like it. =\ Maybe I'll just watch the cutscenes on Youtube...

First half was good minus the fact that I hated Vaan *the one that looked like a fag*... I hated how they killed off your first character after like 3 minutes... But was a fun game none the less *Balthier the Luke Skywalker of FF*

People hated him because he was apparently "whiny" (But we all know he hated jecht, altho he just wanted answers) about his dad, i mean if ur dad never wanted u around and always called u a crybaby, and then magically disappeared one day, then reappeared as a gigantic fish-monster and destroyed your home and then transported you to another world apparently 1000 years in the future with no one in the sea about to be eaten by a monster then found and took on a mahusive adventure going "WTF" but yeah i think all the haters would understand all that happened to tidus straight away. (NOT!!!)

10-14-2009, 11:42 PM
Wow. 8 Years. lol.

Originally, I didn't mind Tidus, but I thought he was a lot less badass then say, Auron or Jecht. I used to think he didn't have a lot of qualities that made him unique.. But then after years passed and I replayed the game last summer, I realized that he was very similar to an actual person, and handled things like real people do. He seemed a lot more real this time through, and I think he's really cool now.

Since my first Final Fantasy was X, I have a real special connection with this game. It brought me into the series and turned 12-year-old me into a fan.

It appears people don't like Tidus for one of two reasons: He handles situtations differently from past main characters, or he's "too whiny." Not everyone is "Whatever" or "Urgh! I'm a puppet?! No! Yes! NO! YES!" If FFX didn't have voice acting, I'm pretty certain that his reception would be different, more likely as better than worse, which is quite rediculous. The voices add to the personality, whether one likes it or not; it doesn't subtract. If you were in his shoes, would you respond like Squall? Cloud? Zidane? No. You would respond with frustration and anger as opposed to apathy, confusion, and total optimism.

However, this is coming from a person who likes every character, so my points may seem rediculous to you, whereas you may think my points are just as so. I felt he was real when playing the game the first time, and the feeling becomes stronger the more I play the game.

Tidus is a great character period.

Well... except for his constant desire to use hand gestures EVERY TIME HE TALKS!

He also had an awkward run, like Kefka's but only halfway there

Scott
11-10-2009, 12:23 PM
FFX was your first...? Weird...

I think Tidus is somewhat annoying. He is always whining and being greedy. Being in "a new world" doesn't give you the right to whine.

Either way, I felt he worked well with all of the cast except for Yuna. I always found Yuna to be too rigid and static. She only becomes somewhat of a reasonable character in X2.

Marcus

He is a character with a lot of heart, the game was superb.

His story telling of the past up to the point of zanarkand was great.

Top that off witha love story and a deep love , yet loving hatred of his father, and you have a very deep character.

Plus he was very flashy with his moves o_o

how can you not like him?

oh... thats right you have to be emo to be cool... right Cloud?

Cloud :You said it Marcus :D, err I mean I cant help anyone "

p.s I cried at the ending of final fantasy x, the game made me think deeply ...

11-22-2009, 04:25 AM
tidus is awesome
arguably one of the better main characters
he really develops in the game going from a cheerful guy whos lost and kin of upset in a new world to a emotionally determined character.

it was his whining and ignorance that made the other characters question what they believe in and he really IS the main character because without him they would still believe in the teachings of yevon (or whatever its called)

he also has my favourte quote ever

"this is my story it will go the way i want or im ending it now"

Aevitas
11-22-2009, 09:06 AM

I actually agree with this. I remember playing the game and wondering if Squenix was playing around with their motion capture studio for the first time and not completely knowing what they were doing. Tidus' "talking" animation would just be recycled over and over again and it's so extravagant/obvious that it bothered me. I could also have been overthinking it because I was studying in film school at the time. =\

I used to think Tidus was a right wanker who got off lucky since no one took it upon themselves to rape his thoart with a chainsaw, but after replaying the game he's kinda grown on to me as a character. I still think he can be pretty irritating though, but I...hate him a whole lot less. I'd go as far as to say he's a good guy who generally means well, he just winds up accidentally pissing in everyone's Coke every once and then.

tl;dr I like Tidus, but he can be pretty annoying.

Not gonna read through a whole topic, but I'll just say this:

I lovz0rz my Tidus.

That said, I want to make this point:

If you were taken out of a comfy life and thrown into a strange world you knew nothing about, with no knowledge of how to get home, and the threat of potential death around every corner, would YOU be all "Gung-Ho let's have an adventure and save the world!" right away?

Hell no.

You would probably whine and bitch and moan, just like Tidus did. Thing is, Tidus quit that and got into the spin of things like 1/4 through the game. So I really don't see what's to complain about.

Yeah, there are a few VA issues, but this was the first FF game ever to have Voice Acting, and back then, VAing wasn't as big an industry as it is today. You gotta cut the actors a little slack. James Taylor did a wonderful job in Dissidia, and his performance in X was still lovely as well.

Hedy Burress was a little shaky here and there, but she also did a very good capture of Yuna.

Maybe X will get a remake for the 30th anniversary and they can all give it another shot. xD


Long story short, I love Tidus. Definitely one of my favorite FF characters in the series.

I hear he is whiney and annoying all the time when in reality he is one of the most cheerful Main Characters in the FF series when he has some of the biggest reasons to be depressed. I can't figure it out honestly.

In my group of friends everyone thinks its hilarious that he is one of my favorites. They all seem to hate him with a passion.

No Cloud fails. He has no reason to be depressed. So what if Aeirth died, 2 years is enough time to mourn a death. And why does he even care if Zack died, he dosen't even remember the guy.

Then he says bullshit like "I cant protect anyone"......does he realize that he saved the planet ?

It's easy to push yourself down due to past mistakes. He blamed himself for Aerith's death, he was also unable to protect Tifa and her father, not to mention Zack himself. It all comes down to the fact that he never made it as a Soldier, that's where I believe his self-loathing began.

Regarding Tidus though, I've never hated him. He's a sporty and positive guy. When compared to someone like "Vaan" I just want to hug Tidus and tell him he's the best in the universe. His story is one of the most interesting in a Final Fantasy universe as well in my opinion.

X was my first FF game, I'll never understand why people hate Tidus so much. I guess because I can relate to him, that & he's pretty cool.

Oh but some say he is whinny, well sorry buddy we all can't be emotionless. People express different feelings in different ways.

Tidus's actions seemed like something a real person his age might do to.

So that to me makes him seem more realistic.

Stereotyping Cloud and/or Squall to justify Tidus?

Tidus is self-centred, and spoilt. He thinks he's a hotshot, but he's just an annoying git with daddy issues. Even when he tries to be a hero, it's because he's self-centred.

Not at all, they'll both cool characters,

I wasn't even thinking of them until you brought em up man. ripping on Cloud & Squall has been used so many its not worth using anymore.

Tidus being selfish, childish at times yes, selfish, not remembering any of the times he was like that.

He is selfish in the sense that, at the start of the game, he's only after his best interests, and even at the end, he's being heroic just so he can fight his father. He dominates what should have been Yuna's story.

i like Tidus cuz when i first played X i was like finally a happy FF chra :D he is not annoying in Dissidia 2 he is just happy(and a ***** up kid with dad how beat him up every day)
i think it's new to some ppl how played VII and VIII first >_>


@_Tidus_: i would like to see that vid plz:D

Zidane was pretty happy character too, but I found him to be kind of irritating, maybe I just don't like monkeys. I also played 7 and 8 first and Tidus is my second favorite character.

I'm amazed that people find him annoying too, although he does dwell on his father problems a bit, and comparing him to other FF characters makes his life seem easy. He's got more realistic problems than horrible psychological ones, whether you like that or not will probably determine if you like his character.

Because he's such a giant woman. Also because he knows Wakka, who is far more annoying, but that is for another thread. I think also as far as this game goes it's because he's got no normal attacks (okay like 2) I just want to hit them not dodge them.

Meg Ryan ≠ Tidus. It's just the hairstyle. Their facial expressions don't even look remotely similar. If we went around saying everyone looked like a celebrity, then Kane from Shining Force would look like David Bowie in the Labyrinth and Big Boss would look like Sean Connery.

Tidus looks more like Camui Gackt, anyway. In face and hair.

That EASILY passes as family in my opinion. They look a lot alike.

As for my opinion of Tidus, I really hated him when I first started playing. He was annoying and whiny. Jecht was right to call him a crybaby. Honestly though, he grows and develops a lot. They did an excellent job writing his character and by the end of the game, Tidus and Jecht were my favorite Final Fantasy characters.

Granted, one really couldn't stand out well without the other and it's because of the father-son dynamic that their personalities were allowed to flourish so much. Either way, I really grew to love both of their characters, so Tidus is a great character in my book.

When I first saw screen shots of the new Final Fantasy game when X first came out, I really thought that Tidus' character design was the dumbest one ever. His facial expressions just made him look weird and his outfit was ridiculous, in my opinion. However, I started playing the game and his appearance grew on me, but his personality didn't. I found him to be extremely annoying as well, especially in the beginning parts of the game and probably even further after the events at Luca.

Eventually I began to like him better as his character become more developed and well-rounded, and at least he wasn't a brooding loner or a whiny emo kid with a personality disorder/identity complex like Squall and Cloud were.

In a way, Tidus is more emo, since he--y'know--emotes.

I find it puzzling that you were expecting an appearance that WASN'T completely outrageous, though. I mean, look at the cast of Dissidia. Just take a good, hard look at them.

How about just "normal"? Whatever happened to normal?

It seems like a whole lot of game designers have lost the ability to come up with characters that don't look like they should be punched in the eye socket or tossed in the primate house. They're all reminiscent of either 1970s-era Mick Jagger or 1990s-era James Hetfield, and most real-life people don't look anything like that.

Oh, and character design aside, Tidus is a maudlin sissy with a tedious sob-story. Square should stop forcing its customers into assuming that role.

This is what I'm hinting at. Tidus really isn't that effeminate. The thing is, it seems like unless the character walks around exposing his ripped abs & has 5 o'clock shadow, he's "effeminate."

Balthier may be the exception.

As for design, I really don't believe that players should be forced into some kind of flat, super-macho archetype either.

To be honest, I think the flat, pretty boy archetype has become the overused look in Japanese culture, and this transfers heavily to their games and movies. I like it when they include characters like Jecht (Although he may have taken all the other characters MANLINESS for himself)

It probably has a lot to do with marketing. Picking an androgynous teenage male for a protagonist should, in theory, pander to your target audience. With Lightning, they were probably going for a woman with a "masculine" personality. Same idea, really.

I'm just saying, everything's cool in moderation.
