• Due to datamining of the demo files, substantial leaks are now everywhere. As a reminder, some of these are in-development screenshots and may point to events that aren't going to be in the final game. Some of them are clearly going to be in the game. The TLS stance is this: Any thread which will contain discussion on the leaked images/ details must clearly contain [SPOILERS] within the title. Anything within those threads does not need to be spoiler tagged. Any POST anywhere on the board containing spoilers must be spoiler tagged or it will be removed and warned. Please report this where you see it. Let's try to make sure everyone can still freely post until everyone has a chance to play this game please!
  • The game is shipping early to some across the world. We have a spoiler section with spoiler threads that are hidden from the new posts button. This was planned to be removed on April 10th. To allow users better access to these threads and ongoing discussion, this feature will be removed earlier. Do not panic - spoilers are not allowed in thread titles and are clearly tagged. You will not be spoiled unless you click on the threads and read them.

Do you think Emperor Mateus is the Proto-Sephiroth?

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).

Square is known for pushing ideas to the next main numbered entry's. I know what you're getting at, and maybe ideas morphed into Sepheroth over time from ideas from Mateaus but probably more of a coincidence.
