View Full Version : Favorite RPG moments

01-12-2003, 04:36 PM
Not sure if there's a thread on this already but I did check all 4 pages in this game forum so I don't think there is =3...

What are your favorite RPG moments?

mine are:
The Opera scene in Final Fantasy VI- Celes is sooo beautiful~!
When Luna sings on the boat in Lunar Silver Star Story
The part where Rinoa and Squall are on the Ragnarok and "Eyes on Me" is played, also when Squall goes to the Sorceress Memorial to rescue her in Final Fantasy VIII

I probably have more that I'm not thinking of at the moment but lemme know yours ^_^

in FFVII, when the party steals the Tiny Bronco and flies it right over Rufus Shinra's head. I don't know why I like it so much...it's just really really uplifting I guess. :rolleyes:

Also, the wedding scene from FFX just FLOORED me.

01-12-2003, 07:34 PM
me too! i like the boat song of lunar - silver star story
ff x ending....
ff 8 ending...
chrono cross.. when serge try to kid

01-12-2003, 08:56 PM
FFX, when Yuna sends the people of that village they go to who's name escapes me. AWESOME CG. I must have watched it 20 times.

Kingdom Hearts, when Sora fights Sephiroth, Sephiroth's intro. Ridiculously sweet. The intro to KH is pretty cool, too.

FF8, Rinoa! In! Space! I love the part when the necklace floats up and she gets hope, then Squall comes and rescues her. So sweet ^.^

01-12-2003, 09:19 PM
Lunar 1's ending...how touching it was!

01-12-2003, 09:49 PM
I agree, in FFVIII in the Ragnorok when they're going home... I've never cried in an RPG like that ever... I was SO into the game at that point. O_O

01-14-2003, 08:30 PM
The Sending from FFX was quite enjoyable. I loved the effects they used on the pyreflies....^_^

As for Sephiroth, I've made it very clear in past threads of how much I adore him. I purposely lost to him over and over just to see that wonderful intro continually. **happy sigh** But you can imagine how p.o.ed I was when I found out that, after you beat him, the intro doesn't occur again....>.<

My absolute favorite moment from an RPG is from Super Mario Rpg, when Bowser quotes haiku about being underappreciated. ^_^ I love that bigass turtle-lug!

01-15-2003, 12:35 AM
Hehe, I don't know if anyone here has played Rhapsody, but there are some really hysterical lines in there that just make me laugh every time. If you haven't played it, and you're a girl, and/or you're an anime fan, you'll proabably find it funny. But it's a girly game, so be forwarned. Anyway, yeah, just basically all kinds of jokes from that game.. .

... and many romantic scenes from FF8... T____T

01-15-2003, 03:24 PM
The ending to Xenogears... ;_; *proceeds to list several moments within xenogears as well*

Others include, opera scene in Parasite Eve(just cool), FF9 ending, Aeris' death scene in FF7

Let's not forget the secret ending on Kingdom Hearts!! Two KEYBLADES!!!? what's better than that!?

01-15-2003, 11:07 PM
For me, it's the end of Lunar 2: Eternal Blue. It's just so different from every other love story ending. The other Lunar moments already mentioned are great too.

Hmm.. probably, in Suikoden 2, it's the Greenhill Mission, where you and others in your army have to pretend to be students at New Leaf Academy.. that whole thing is just priceless.

01-16-2003, 03:19 AM

Suikoden 2,
when my Hero Luca Blight made a woman act
like a pig only to slaughter her....

*sigh*... I miss thee Luca.

When ID swears out Citan In Solaris was good...
also when he destroys the sand sub thing lol.

Also in Suikoden 3 any scene involving The
Harmonian Defence force. :D

01-16-2003, 07:13 AM
When Chrono dies in Chrono Trigger, I couldn't believe it. Also when Gremio dies in Suikoden 1.

In FF6 when Kefka goes "I have SAND on my BOOTS!!" and the guys wipe his boots XD

And when Gau called Cyan "Mr. Thou"!

And when you were watching the Opera and you talk to Sabin and he goes "Why is everybody singing?" lol ^-^

And when Kefka goes "Run! Run! Or you'll be well done!" ^o^

And when you were Locke and you could steal people's clothes!!!!!! XD

And.. Better stop there ^_^ FF6 is just too memorable XD

01-16-2003, 01:15 PM
- - SPOILERS - -

I beat Lunar I. I suppose it was a good ending but... I was hoping for a longer ending. -_-* Same with FFX.

Anyway, something about Rydia coming back on FFIV when Cecil and his party were having trouble holds something dear to me.

Celes left all alone when you couldn't feed Cid any fish in FFVI. DEFINITELY a very SAD moment but stands out in my book.

And there were multiple moments in FFIX and SKIES OF ARCADIA that I really liked. Watching Zidane and Vyse grow during the game are definitely great moments. It's very refreshing.

- - END - -

01-16-2003, 02:23 PM
!Spoilers! - maybe

I really enjoyed watching the scence in Legend of Dragoon when you see the war between the Dragoons and the Virage/Winglies. Watching Zeke fight, uh, I forget his name and and become stone while Rose struggles to save him was a thing of beauty.

I liked too much in Xenogears to even begin listing it here.

I don't know, there's too much to try to remember right now...

01-16-2003, 04:07 PM
In Breath of Fire 3,
when Ryu had to fight Garr,
(Future Ryu)
Even though Garr knew he
would have to die, he would
die so Ryu would live kinda thing
got to me.

Also when Rei and Toppo
apparently died,
when you meet Rei again
I was so damn pleased....
and Toppo, well it was
abit of a shock meeting him again.

01-16-2003, 05:16 PM
*spoilers* Bwah!

Suikoden 2- the Tinto ending, starting with when you sneak away, to the final encounters with Shu & the others. When Shu slaps the hero, that is really something. Ridley dies. Everyone should see that ending. It's priceless.
FF9- the ending! The Iifa Tree! It's all so funny and cute and wonderful. And the play... awww!! Oh, and also, the scene right after you defeat Garland and Kuja kicks him. XD
FF6- the opera scene, obviously. ^_^
Phantasy Star 4- when you find out the truth about Rune in the Esper Mansion. Getting Elsydeon and all that.
Dragon Force- the magic banana scene... XD Yeah, I'm sure none of you have played this game, but that scene is AMAZING.
Rhapsody- Evil Queen... bwahaha. That song & dance is so amazingly Disney and wonderful!

01-17-2003, 03:00 PM
Arc the Lad 2 - when Tosh's dad is possed and is killing innocent people just so Tosh will fight him.
Chrono Cross - when you fight Ozzie, Slash and Flea.
Tenchu - Whenever i cut a guys head off.
Final Fantasy X - when Tidus finds out that Yuna will die after the final summoning in the Al Bhed Home.

01-17-2003, 07:40 PM
In Star Ocean 2
where Ashton is all mad because
Precis is all lovey dovey over Claude lol.

And the Scene where Leon asks
Claude for help with women lol.

01-17-2003, 07:41 PM
Aahhhh!!! The date between Claude and Ashton in Star Ocean! How could I forget???!! XD XD

01-18-2003, 01:14 PM
Celine: I've played Dragon Force a bunch of times but PLEASE help me recall the Magic Banana scene. O__O

01-18-2003, 01:46 PM
It's only if you choose Reinhart as your main character, when you go to one of those shrines, and receive the dragon power. It's the scene which transpires around this image: http://www.synbios.net/wolfgang/df-web/ev145.jpg In order to distract Reinhart, Gongos tells him a story about the magic banana... it's hilarious. XD

01-18-2003, 02:02 PM
> The Opera scene in Final Fantasy VI- Celes is sooo beautiful~!

I won't argue with that... it's right up there as my most memorable scene ever tied with...

Odessa's death in Suikoden 1.


The second rooftop scene where Flik explains that love never dies, Suikoden II.

Tied with: The 108 stars ending to Suikoden III.

Third Place:

The flashback when you finally understand Ghaleon and his frustrated love both for his friend and Althena. Lunar 1.

Honorable Mentions:

The battle between Glenn and Dario in Chrono Cross.

Seed and Culgan's last stand, Suikoden II.

Kuja's FMV entrance in FFIX.


Hmmm... I think there is a common theme here. Other than Kuja's (who's there just because it was visually stunning), all the scenes I find memorable are the ones which made me cry, due to being too beautiful or too tragic to bear.

I should mention I am also very fond of the Secret Highway scene when you confront Yuber in Suikoden III, just because it's so cool... but I would not call it "memorable" in itself...

01-18-2003, 02:36 PM
All my most memorable RPG moment are from FF's, so I'll list them chronologically. ^_^

FFVI - "Ahem! There's SAND on my boots!" and "You sound like a self-help-booklet!!" (or something like that)

FFVII - The first time you fight One Winged Angel. You just sit and gape (and get killed ^_^) at that... that... Goddamit! He has a friggin choir excelting him!! (Also, when OWA pulls the Supernova for the first time (note, 1st), you just run under your bed, scared. ^_^)

FFVIII - Irvine's intro FMV. ^__^ And the FMV at the Sorceress Memorial. And most touching of em all: The scene in the ending, where young Laguna gives the ring to Raine. I still cry at that point!!

FFIX - Kuja's intro FMV. Bishi~ ^_____^ And when Kuja single-handedly destroys Terra... WOAH!

FFX - The wedding scene. I was drooling somewhere below floor level. ^-^ And then scene at the spring, right after the wedding (where Suteki da ne plays for the first time in vocal). And, of course, the ending. All the endings are sad in FF's. In some way.

Oh! And Kingdom Hearts!! The Top 3-moving-moments are: The point where I realised that Riku was going to sacrfice himself to help Sora save the worlds (ack! And he had just turned good!), the point where Kairi starts crying when she's at the scribbled stones and... The cutscene where Aeris and Cloud meets. I don't get it, it was just sooo touching. Cloud seemed so... so... shy. ^_^

Dragon Quest V - When the hero is turned to stone for 8 years and sold to some guy as a statue, and you observe the world regressing and passing through the seasons when you're a statue. And then you're saved by your own children and they join your party!

Dragon Quest VII - When Kiefer leaves the party for good :(

Final Fantasy IV - The Zeromus fight. Gotta love the games where someone who seems to be your arch enemy throughout most of the game becomes your ally towards the end (Golbez!) to face a larger threat.

Final Fantasy X - When Sin wipes out everyone!

Final Fantasy Tactics - Everything Delita does after his sister dies at the end of chapter one. He's becomes such a bastard and obsessed with making it to the top. Kind of reminds you of Griffith from Berserk O_o

Castlevania SOTN: What's crazier than facing a corrupt Belmont!? Absolutely nothing!

Metal Gear Solid - When Meryl gets slugged with a few rounds by Sniper Wolf and Snake gets all emotional and you have to rush and get the PSG1. And then the torture chamber and being thrown in a cell with the real DARPA chief, who apparently had been decomposing for 3 weeks. O_o

Metal Gear Solid 2 - When E.E. dies. So utterly horrible and completely unexpected. Freakin' Vamp! :mad:

Mario RPG - In Rose Town where you walk in on Gaz playing with Mario action figures!

Whenever Milich's music plays in Suikoden.

01-18-2003, 04:21 PM
Thanks, Celine, but I'm afraid I have NOT beaten the game with Reinhart yet. = ( I'll get to that sometime.

FFX= when the crew is sliding down the chains off of Cid's Airship. Gotta be the best way to crash a wedding. Not to mention it makes the heroes like like straight up badasses.

haha, isn't it interesting how ALL the characters are like...totally capable of doing that with ease? Even KIMAHRI...I would picture something more like...half the cast falling off the ropes or finding an alternate entrance. But that just makes them more badass...


01-20-2003, 10:38 PM
I always remember this one scene in Lufa 2: Rise of the Sinistrals when Dekar comes back and kills many sea creatures. Dekar was awesome!

Oh yeah, and a bunch of Final Fantasy stuff too.

01-21-2003, 12:31 AM

PS2 Nei's death, and the ending of killing all the survivors of earth :O

01-22-2003, 03:27 AM
Eh, I hate these threads, cuz I think of too much I wanna cover...Um, I can only think a few real quotes off the top of the head, the others get a summery...

Legaia: Noa asking what a pimp is and her reaction to it.

Chrono Cross: Nikki's concert!

Chrono Trigger: "If history is to change, let it change. If the world is to be destroyed, so be it. If my fate is to die, I must simply laugh." & "You got whacked cuz' you're weak." Magus sums up all RPGs.

Grandia 2: Melfice laughing...continuously...throughout your battle with him.

Lunar: "-Not- 'Ghaleon' - *dear*...Quark."

SMRPG: Geno explaining that his name is not pronouncable.

Xenogears: Just everything Citan says, really, and the manner that he phrases his sentances. And "MAD SKILLZ!"

FF7: the Wall Market sequences. And the stair climb. And Sephi laughing cutely in flashbacks. And Vincent slamming the coffin lid down. And Cid demanding tea. And when Elena and Yuffie get tied up. And Cloud and Aeris at the playground. And I could keep going, but that's probably sufficient.

FFT: For being such a cute-looking game, it has got some of the most biting remarks about religion, revisionist history, ranks and prejudice. I've actually quoted it in liberal studies papers.

FF6: Yeah too many good Kefka lines to even start. He's one of those bad guys I'm glad is a bad guy - cuz he is too fruity and insane. And Setzer's too quotable, too "I don't have anything to lose but my life. . .and I got that for free!"

Star Ocean 2: dang, Celine beat me to the punch again. Um, fine, then Ashton's barrel fetish and anytime they're pretending not to be drinking alcohol (to keep it rated E, of course) Apple cider. Yea, right.

Vagrant Story: whenever Sydney gets impaled, gets his limbs pulled off, back flayed...and he's just like...whatever, and continues on his business.

Wild ARMs: "If the humans can turn hope into power, then I can turn desire into a blade..." Boomerang rox. He and Zed needed so much more screentime.

And generally: anytime slow pretty music is playing during a major boss battle instead of normal battle music.

End of the post. Lala.
