Top Ten Final Fantasy Tactics Characters

This list covers characters who are in Final Fantasy Tactics. Major spoilers for a load of characters.
The Top Ten
1 Ramza Beoulve

Ramza is the hero of the game, driven to find the truth despite being at odds with just about everyone. He leaves his family line because of corruption and is branded as a heretic. Ramza holds his own in every battle and uncovers the truth.

His story is apparently lost in history, as he still retains the status of heretic. However, the whole point of the Zodiac Brave story, which is the plot of Final Fantasy Tactics, showcases everything Ramza has done.

2 Cidolfas Orlandu

Also known as "Thunder God Cid," Orlandu is an overpowered character with every special sword skill in the game. He is touted in the story as a guy who can take on a single army alone, making the game easy.

He survives an assassination attempt thanks to Delita's scheme, where an impostor is killed, and the real Orlandu joins Ramza's group.

3 Delita Hyral

Delita Hyral/Heiral is the former best friend of Ramza who became a foil character. His desire for power came after the death of his sister Teta, and as a result, he's trying to do what he thinks is right.

In his quest, he primarily targets the nobility while saving Princess Ovelia from those around her. Despite their separation, Delita remains Ramza's friend. In the game, there isn't a single battle where Ramza and Delita fight as direct enemies.

At the end of the story, Delita gets what he wants, but at the cost of being all alone.

4 Wiegraf Folles

Wiegraf is very fondly remembered by those who went into Riovanes Castle, saved after the first battle, but couldn't beat the second battle due to his very difficult duel.

Originally a commoner who fought nobility, Wiegraf loses his sister Miluda at Ramza's hands and swears revenge. He eventually comes into contact with the Aries stone and becomes the demon Velius. He's quite memorable as an opponent.

5 Agrias Oaks

Agrias is a fan-favorite character due to her being an early-game recruit and having Holy Knight abilities. She fights for what's right, and her skills are very useful in the game when you can finally control her.

6 Messam Elmdor

Marquis Messam Elmdor is the Marquis of Limberry and the second reason why Riovanes Castle is so difficult. He is the last battle alongside his two assassins, Celia and Lede. A very Sephiroth-like character who even wields a Masamune, Elmdor was originally killed offscreen, only to show up at Riovanes Castle.

There, he assassinates Duke Barinten (Barrington) and fights Ramza and Rafa. He later reappears, revealing that he had the Gemini Stone and becoming the demon Zalera.

7 Vormav Tingel

Also known as Folmarv Tengille in later translations, Vormav can be seen as the true villain of the game due to his intentions of reviving St. Ajora, which is really a demon known as Altima/Ultima. He holds the Leo stone and is secretly the demon Hashmal/Hashmalam. He is also the father of Izlude/Isilud and Meliadoul.

His actions are nothing but sinister, and he even kills his own son Izlude and the High Priest Funeral to prove those points.

8 Dycedarg Beoulve

If only he wasn't as corrupt as he was, Dycedarg would have been a cool elder brother to both Zalbag/Zalbaag and Ramza. But as it stands, he's involved in a plot, even assassinating Larg (one of the two warring princes) and conspiring with the church. He even gets the Capricorn stone in the process.

He eventually becomes the demon Adramelk/Adrammelech and must be slain by Ramza.

9 Zalbag Beoulve

Zalbag can be seen as a close ally despite Ramza's current status. Unfortunately, he is too stubborn at first but eventually realizes what Dycedarg is planning. Unfortunately again, he pays with his life, as Adramelk vanquishes him upon arrival.

Zalbag then gets re-raised but wrong, and even begs Ramza to kill him, which sparks a sad end to the Beoulve line.

10 Meliadoul Tingel

Meliadoul Tingel/Tengille isn't as popular as Orlandu, but she has access to a good sword skill set that allows her to destroy enemy equipment and cause damage.

Storywise, she is originally against Ramza due to the death of her brother Izlude, but ends up siding with him during the battle against Elmdor. Taking her to Vormav will spark some heart-wrenching dialogue, where Meliadoul realizes her father is a monster.
