- The Girl With A Strong Opinion
I know that people think that Sephiroth and Kelfka were the first main villians who differed from the usual evil conquerors/tin tyrants we used to see in the pre-FF 6. However, on their second game we are introduced to the Emperor, who looked like Jareth from the Labyrinth, but on the other hand fit the dark over lord archetype. While Mateus is a bishonen like Sephiroth, he still fits more of the conqueror mindset instead of Sephiroth who wants to just destroy everything in his path post-insanity. Also one thing that really differ from Mateaus is that unlike Sephiroth, he's very much someone who was always evil (to the point that even his light side is evil).
