Top Ten Memorable Moments from Final Fantasy Tactics

NuMetalManiak
With so many memorable moments in the game, it's easy to see just how memorable the game itself is. Spoilers ahead.

The Top Ten

1 The final duel against Wiegraf

Everyone who first played FFT probably got here and couldn't win this battle, especially worse considering the implication that you can actually save your game in back-to-back battles. Wiegraf's duel is the second battle of Riovanes Castle, and it's often considered the hardest battle due to Wiegraf having multiple powerful skills at his disposal and the player only controlling Ramza alone. Beat the duel and then you have to fight Wiegraf again this time as the demon Velius, who summons his own demons while your remaining party members join up. - NuMetalManiak

2 The rooftop battle against Elmdor

The last battle of Riovanes Castle is another horrid battle to play through, all because of some dumb AI on the part of Rafa, a character who needs to be protected. She will rush right in against Elmdor, or perhaps Lede and Celia, the assassins with 100% status inflicting attacks, particularly the one that can cause 100% Dead status. And it could happen before you can move. There's a reason I level grinding so much in FFT, because I anticipated this battle being a real clincher. - NuMetalManiak

3 Algus shoots Teta

This was a moment that caused Delita to lose it. Algus, being a jerk and a nobleman, has no regard for commoners, and just shoots Teta as Golagros uses her as a human shield before Algus shoots Golagros as well. This particular moment causes retaliation from Delita to kill Algus, and explosives are set off. This also causes the separation of Ramza and Delita. - NuMetalManiak

4 The battle against Queklain/Cuchulainn

Queklain/Cuchulainn is the first ever Zodiac demon fought, apparently corrupting the cardinal of Lionel Castle, Draclau with the Scorpio Stone. This fight is quite memorable just for being the first one, and showing how difficult these boss battles can be. - NuMetalManiak

5 The battle at Zirekile Falls

This may seem like an odd item, but this battle is memorable for several reasons. One, it's one where Ramza and Delita reunite, with the latter having Princess Ovelia/Ophelia with him. The three are basically allies against several knights here. Also notable is the betrayal of Gafgarion, who is in it for the money, where smart players can strip him of equipment prior to make sure he's not too difficult to defeat. - NuMetalManiak

6 The final duel at Lionel Castle against Gafgarion

This event happens before battling Queklain, where Ramza gets into his first duel, which is sort of a pseudo duel due to the fact that Ramza's allies will be tied up behind a gate fighting Gafgarion's allies while the two head honchos are to battle together. This one is often considered another one of the tougher battles in the early game. - NuMetalManiak

7 The Dorter Trade City Battle

Considered to be the first really tough battle in the game, all because of the enemies involved. The wizards are tough already with powerful spells, and there's one archer known for sitting at the top of a roof and sniping enemies, which is where Algus and Delita will usually attack first. But this battle is memorable solely for being tough. - NuMetalManiak

8 The Final Battle against Altima/Ultima

In an interesting twist, Alma manages to avoid being a true host for the body of Ultima, but in the process, the demonic archangel fights off both Ramza and Alma in this ship graveyard. It's not the greatest final battle, but it's a worthwhile conclusion. - NuMetalManiak

9 The ending

FFT's ending is sort of ambiguous. MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD. It seems that Ramza and Alma are both dead, but both apparently are sighted by Olan/Orran riding chocobos. Meanwhile, Delita ends up being king, but stabbed by Ovelia, who ends up stabbing her dead and in the end, Delita ends up completely alone and wondering if Ramza had a better outcome than he did. - NuMetalManiak

10 The end of the Beoulve legacy

An event that causes a rift to be torn in the Beoulve family, Dycedarg of course makes a deal with the devil and acquires the Capricorn stone, while Zalbag attempts to foil his plot. He is killed for it, but Dycedarg as Adramelk/Adrammelech is also slain. Zalbag later shows up as an undead and begs for Ramza to kill him before he kills Ramza, and while Ramza technically is a Beoulve, he has already been branded as a heretic and is presumed dead at the end of the game too. - NuMetalManiak
