V is for Vivi

Vivi: "But... But I have to... I have to find out who I am... I'm scared... What if I'm not even human...?"

How can I not mention my avatar Vivi? Final Fantasy IX is actually my favourite Final Fantasy game so far. I love the characters and the plotline. Vivi is a fascinating character--plus he's, you know, adorable.

He's a Black Mage, one of the more useful companions to have in your party, in my opinion. As the story progresses, it is revealed that the Black Mages are mindless tools created by Kuja, designed to die after one year. Vivi is different than the other mages, but he struggles throughout the game with questions about his existence and origins.

I'm disappointed that you don't actually find out what happens to him at the end of the game.

Shout out to blogger buddy V: To fellow nerd Joshua at Vive le Nerd!


  1. Hopefully he found his path and reason for being.

  2. i thought it was a well dressed orco...

  3. The only final fantasy I've watched (I watched my sister on it, since I'm terrible at playing console games) is FFX. I have heard of this character before though, and I feel sorry for him! Poor guy. He is adorable.

  4. I always wondered where he came from. I gave you an award on my blog, Allison. Drop by when you have the time!

  5. I'm feeling my geek crown wobble a bit...I don't really know Final Fantasy all that well. Guess I need to go check it out!

  6. I really love that game.
    Great music. It's amongst my top 2 or 3 FF's. Unless I'm mistaken, the main protagonist (with the tail), by some weird twist, finds that he's not entirely unlike Vivi, doesn't he? In that he's a constuct of some kind... Maybe not. It's been far too long.

  7. Yes! Vivi!! I've loved the FF games since the very first one (which was my very first video RPG, btw) and the Black Mages always rocked.

    I knew when I saw him as your blog avatar, this was one I had to follow.

    Great choice! :)

  8. I'd always assumed it was a FF avatar, but I was never certain :)
