Most Wanted Final Fantasy Characters In Kingdom Hearts 3
Zidane – Zidane is one of the most underrated characters in the Final Fantasy franchise, not to mention Final Fantasy IX being the most underrated game as well, Zidane takes the role of a thief who blemishes into a lovable, caring character that we all fall in love with. The character is unique and different from what we experienced in other games and would be an excellent addition to Kingdom Hearts 3, maybe the possibility of him aiding you in battle or helping you steal an item, since after all he is a thief.
Adelbert Steiner - Sticking with Final Fantasy IX, Steiner has become a fan favorite with his stocky build and silver armor. He is the leader of The Knights of Pluto and is originally assigned to protect princess Garnet. Steiner could be used in Kingdom Hearts 3 to protect Kairi and follow her around for a mission or two if she is to be a playable character, a lot of useful ideas for him.
Kain Highwind - Kain probably has the coolest attire in Final Fantasy IV, he is mostly known for being possessed by Golbez and becoming cruel and extremely cold ( does that remind you of someone? ) Once freed from Golbez’s control, Kain is forgiven by Cecil and vows to atone for his past actions, a promise that carries over into The After Years, as he tries to vanquish his dark side and helps Ceodore. Kain could be used several ways to not only help Riku but guide him form his dark side.
Vincent Valentine – Not only does he have the coolest name, but the guy has amazing attire. Dark and brooding over his past experiences, Vincent conceals many secrets. He speaks in a cryptic manner, when he talks about his past, calling his traumas “‘sins”. he has an extremely cold personality, at one point Cloud even admits he thought Vincent didn’t care about the planet. He is loner and a former ally of Cloud, which is more of a reason to put him in Kingdom Hearts 3 with Cloud.
Cecil Harvey – Cecil was raised by the king or Baron, which initially caused friction between him and the young Kain Highwind. Kain thought Cecil received special treatment and wanted to fight him, so you could begin to imagine how awesome it would be to have both Kain and Cecil in Kingdom Heart 3, although this is highly unlikely to have both… we can dream.
Kefka Palazzo – Also known as Lord Kefka upon ascension to godhood, he is the main antagonist in Final Fantasy VI and is the only Final Fantasy character thats extremely frightening. While most Final Fantasy bad guys are cold and bent on their goals Kefka is loud, short-tempered, maniacal, and destructive. His popularity among Final Fantasy fans as a villain is rivaled only by the almighty Sephiroth. Kefka is known for his many one liners, almighty appearance (which has become something of a tradition in the series), as well as his sociopathic hatred of everything in existence. His dark humor and jester like appearance have earned him the nickname “The Psycho Clown” among fans. What a villain he would be in Kingdom Hearts 3, could you imagine Kefka getting control of the heartless and ruling the world?
