Thanx for letting me post a new topic!!

I don't mean to stomp on any toes or offend anyone, but after a couple of runs in FFX I began to picture Yuna as a messiah, or Jesus, if you will, (she died for our SIN, you see). Lots of Final Fantasy's have religious use in the content but seem to get lost or not translated at all for Americans. But maybe its just me. Do you agree or disagree? Or do any other character seem to share the light with Yuna? Perhaps Terra, Cecil? Comment please. And sorry if it offends anyone..


thanks!

sorry but yuna is no jesus, he was confident in all his ways, he called himself king of the jews, he sacrificed himself in the most painful way, he prayed to God, his father mean while yuna depended on the strength of others, her faith in yuevon(however its spelt) wavered, she ended up fighting the so called god yuevon, she neer proclaimed to be anything, she was not confident and she used physical voilence to solve her problems...im sorry but i cant find any resemblance

i so agree.......its kinda sad that ffx's storyline is a religious base....the USA version make it even more religious by renaming the boss SIN.............i guess its the influences of christianity......ppl dying for their belief.....but like FFX religion is alot like many religion around the world....theres always a dark secret that everyone tend to hide or ignore.............however FF series also tell its player that theres alway more than one truth out there u just have to find it...

So okay, someone else understands what I'm thinking. But when I stepped back and thought about it for a moment seemed kind of thinking too much into the storylines. Like who cares? But it always served as an interesting side note when I play the game.

Well if you look at it, all of the Final Fantasy games have some sort of symbolism. But has anyone noticed the uncanny resemblance between FFXII and Star Wars?

Vaan=Luke
Ash=Princess Leiah
Basch=Some sort of Obi-Wan Kenobi (except he doesn't die)
Balthier=Han Solo
Fran=A version of Chewie...kinda
Gabranth=Darth Vader

and so forth and so forth?

nah, i thought yuna was more like a tribunal lord (or whatever they are called, funeal lords or something) from edo times...but that whole sin thing was a liitle odd....cept in a twist..it was a apperent god keeping sin alive.

I think the basic idea in FFX is based on the buddhistic way of thinking and some parts are clearly assigned to japanese mythology

I think it was done so not to let it look like something frivolous. Of course it CAN have a deep meaning, but it still is a game, I think... don't know~~~ It's kind of when someone can put something religious in his story so that it seems more sirious 'cause of the historical touch~~^^
