Final Fantasy Worlds And Their Connection
I began to research this when I saw the various plot theories for Final
Fantasy XIII. I have come to a conclusion that there is a chance that
all the games are in fact tied to one another.
The setting of Final Fantasy 13 is framed around a futuristic society,
which leads me to wonder something. Much like stars, through out the games
it appears planets have life. But in more of a metaphysical sense. By
this, I mean that all that will happen is based on the central life inside
the planet. In 7, it was a lifestream, in 8, there were various things
holding the planet together. It's more about the thing being threatened.
In 9, there was 2 planets, and one threatened the others civilisation
by exposing it to the life on it's own surface. In 10, it was a rift in
the planet that attacked itself. This being said, it is plausible that
once a civilisation dies out, they have no way to replenish the planet.
Thus it dies, and the planet recreates itself.
Now, what must then occur is the planet builds a defense. It creates more
intelligent creatures, while making sure no evil can overpower it. This
stands to reasoning if the planet's life is substantial to that of a human.
It makes itself stronger, and will eventually make stronger life.
Based on this theory, I can also say that the games do not go in historic
order. 8 would have happened before 7, and 9 prior to 8. The world of
Final Fantasy 3 would have happened prior to the rest, based on the medieval
In Final Fantasy 7, Sephiroth wanted to wound the planet, then proceed
to "become" the planet. This would mean the planets never fully
die, they just pass on ownership, if you will.
The games most likely follow this planet life concept, but only one really
focused on it. The game would then become almost like a series of the
unanswered questions, "What happened afterwards?" The games
should then follow each other in a misset order, simply milleniums apart.
Cloud and Aeris appear in Final Fantasy Tactics, which lends itself an
automatic contradictory ideal, but that could have simply been based on
a joke for the creators. After all, Final Fantasy has a large number of
Also, every game has a consistent tie to two different species. The chocobo
is an obvious one, because it has become a staple of the games. But the
moogle has been in almost every game up until X. The games worlds also
seem to have evolutionary changes in their mechanics and societies, although
keeping some species of monster. The most notable reoccurent creatures
are Bahamut, Marlboro, and the Cactuar.
Thus I believe each time the planet "dies" and later reforms
to a new existence. The existence becomes stronger then the last, but
like all life, must fail. So no matter what, this existence is simply
a stone throw away from extinction.
In addition, many times villians are closely related in premise, and I
don't believe this to be any coincidence. Jenova is a planet originally,
if you follow the whole idea she was the meteor. Kuja was created by a
mad man, Garland, who had a alternate planet, similar to Gaia. So there
is a chance Garland could have created Jenova and Kuja.
And if this is so, perhaps the planet that was the birth of Jenova and
Kuja is the same, maybe it crashed into the planet of FF7. Then, this
would back up the fact that Jenova had destroyed so many worlds.
Yes, I know there are holes, but this is the basis of my research as of
now. I will continue with this and get more out later. Thank you.
