Top Ten Bahamut Lagoon Characters

This was a fantastic game at the end of the SNES era by Squaresoft, with lots of great characters in it. Let's see which ones were cool.
The Top Ten
1 Byuu

Byuu, the main hero and silent protagonist, isn't much of a talker, but everyone in his Dragon Squad admires and roots for him. Even some of his enemies find him respectable, which is quite impressive. His skill with two swords as a Cross Knight is also helpful.

2 Yoyo

Princess Yoyo, later Queen of Kahna, is a great character both in gameplay and plot due to her summoning abilities and her role as the keeper of the Holy Dragon summons.

3 Matelite

In many ways, Matelite is the predecessor to the hammy Adelbert Steiner of *Final Fantasy IX* (remember, *Bahamut Lagoon* was a prototype for *Final Fantasy Tactics*). Matelite is a thick-headed warrior who sells his own branded armor and harbors a huge devotion and crush on Princess Yoyo (which isn't well received). His Inspire skill is also of great use in the game.

4 Palpaleos

General Palpaleos of the Granbelos Empire is the other Cross Knight and the last member to join Byuu's group. He starts out as an enemy working for Emperor Sauzer. His devoted love for Yoyo, which is reciprocated by the princess, persuades him to join Byuu's quest, and Sauzer even allows him to do it. He's on par with Byuu and makes an excellent rival, ultimately winning the girl that either Byuu or Matelite could have gotten.

5 Taicho

Taicho, the leader of the Mahal knights, is a decent character who is mostly on par with Matelite. He often acts as second-in-command to Matelite. His backstory revolves around the tragic loss of his wife, Celine, and his cowardice in handling the situation. However, working with Byuu's group proves fruitful for him.

6 Sendak

Sendak is a senile old man and the self-proclaimed captain of the Kahna Dragon Squad. His usefulness stems from his battle abilities, as he is the other summoner in the game besides Yoyo and can sense the Holy Dragons despite not being the real host.

7 Donfan

I can't leave this guy out. He is possibly the quintessential Squaresoft womanizer, always lusting after love from the ladies and constantly finding himself in trouble. He has plenty of hilarious scenes, one of which is optional but funny due to his role as a spy who tries to court the Granbelos ladies. He's a lancer in combat, equipped with spears that unfortunately don't offer much range.

8 Bikkebakke

The perpetually nervous Bikkebakke is one of the three buddy knights that Byuu starts with. His nervousness is emphasized as he tries to make ends meet by selling various items like books, mushrooms, and even Matelite's equipment. Despite his anxieties, he's on par with the other knights.

9 Rush

Rush is a strange fellow among the three buddy knights that Byuu has. He isn't fleshed out until near the end, where he develops a small rivalry with Matelite. For some reason, he's forced into being a storekeeper where you can buy weapons, armor, and items all at once. Despite this, his combat skills as a knight are impressive.

10 Truce

The last knight, and perhaps the most boring one, but also the most level-headed. Truce has several story scenes, which often involve him thinking whimsically or accidentally being in the women's quarters on the carrier. Despite this, Truce is a jack-of-all-trades in combat and one of the better members overall.
