Is there another FF character with a more ridiculous hair?
Funny thing is, if Seymore and his posse had have a design which didn't scream FF antagonist and a theme which didn't sound like a fucking imperial march, the twist that he killed his father and wanted to end the world would have been an actual twist. Everything he says and does infront of the party is reasonable and Tidus would appear even more like a petty, little shit for being so butthurt about a political marriage. But instead Square went with identifying him as a genocidal maniac from the point he exited the boat in Luca.
I remember playing the game for first time and hearing that theme when Seyblargh first stepped out of that boat, I almost laughed out loud for that musical spoiler. Square just can't into sublety.
He's just a terrible character
I don't think you were really MEANT to like him, or trust him. He's so obviously the villain that you're on edge every time he appears on screen, just waiting for him to lower the boom and do something evil. If you look at the rest of the game, Tidus is the only one finding fault with the various retarded cultural practices of Spira, because nobody else knows any different. It's the same with Seymour - even though it's obvious to any casual observer how evil he is, Tidus (and by extension, the player) is the only one to point his finger and say "why the fuck are you even trusting this guy? Just fucking LOOK at him!". And, like pretty much everything else in the game, Tidus was right about it in the end.
>even though it's obvious to any casual observer how evil he is
Why? Because of the game's OST and character design as a VIDEOGAME character, and nothing else. Seymore saves the stadium, saves the remains of the offensive against Sin and is general tolerant, patient and idolized by ALL the people in Spira because of how great an uprisign leader he is, bringing forth the relations between humans and Guado. But nope. His design shits all over his actions. No ambiguity at all in his intensions to the point where you can savely ignore all the things he does, by things that don't actually exist in the story, like background music.
Maybe, MAYBE if the game had acknowledged that the Guado look like evil freaks of nature in a short conversation like "Those Guado sure look evil." "OMG Tidus you can't say people look evil, are you retarded?" "Uuuh. Sins toxin I guess! lol" But the game doesn't even throw you that bone, instead you get more of Tidus moaning that he always had a bad feeling about Seymore from the off.
The twist is also telegraphed as fuck, not a surprise at all.
>Seymore saves the stadium
With possibly the most horrifying and evil looking summon in the series.
>saves the remains of the offensive against Sin
Not really, he steps in at the end to swing his spellcaster dick around by overkilling one monster so that Yuna would get wet for him.
And you're forgetting the part just before Operation Mi'ihen where he tells the party he fully expects the Al Bhed and Crusaders to get BTFO by Sin and doesn't give a shit. Again, his place in the story is as someone that fully abuses the fact that everyone except Tidus trusts him solely because of his position (he's a Maester, and Maesters can't be bad people!), and Tidus is the only one to see past his title and notice that he's actually a bit of a cunt.
>he and his summon look evil so it should be clear to everyone that he is evil
Great thinking mate, I was complaining about his design. If a friendly looking dude pulled Anima out of the ground, that'd get a rise out of the audience, but since Seymore is declared the big bad the moment he appears on screen, the impact of a really great cinematic is again reduced, by the clumsy and undoubtly intentional spoilers.
>he steps in at the end
Yeah, at the end when only Auron and Yuna were sill standing and in fighting condition. If Seymore hadn't been there, Sinspawn Omega would have shrekt any survivors of the offensive, including the party.
>he tells the party the Al Bhed were doomed to fail and didn't do anything
Everyone knew the Al Bhed were doomed, even the Al Bhed knew it was a suicide mission. Have you seen how Sin shrekt the chocobo riders who charged into the waters? Or have you not picked up on why Luzzu sent Gatta to guard duty? What was Seymore supposed to do? Forbid the Al Bhed to fight? You are intentionally acting dumb because there isn't a single evil action of shithair until he drops the ball at Macalania. Seymore is just a shitty executed mess.
Why is there a goth living on fantasy magic beach island?
Don't care. It's an awesome character.
Cease this futile intent of revisionism.
In Lulu's case they are actually highly symbolic and not just pure 'aesthetic' design. They represent her inner retreat and fragility after her lover's death - only letting her 'true' self peek through (upper left leg, tits) beneath her shackles.
Not even final hair form (third form is best hair form)
This guy knows what's up.
Not surprised no one on /v/ has played Vagrant story.
It was rather
There's only one belt actually attached to her - the 'prime' belt, around her waist, hidden underneath the rest. When she unbuckles that, the dress simply drops to the ground and she steps out of it through the top.
Lilties are kind of plant people though so this shit is understandable.
what I don't understand is why lilties in one of the crystal chronicle games were normal sized?
This is a lilty girl
>Could have been /v/'s version of CARLOS
That's Cutman though
You could say he is a

This would have been a more interesting reveal, actually. Seymour seems like a pretty cool guy then suddenly he pulls anime out and the audience is left thinking "wait, wut"
Yeah that's a load of crap. One look at Anima should've tipped you off at least. Also I still don't understand why he bothered sponsoring Operation Mi'ihen. Kinoc says they didn't expect it to work and I assume Seymour knew it wouldn't work either.
Remove the greenscarf, the lucky charms badge, Both belts+book case and omitted the massive sword (already has a sword on his back) and it's a good design with a balanced colour scheme
