I love this kind of topics but, since I´m a Suikoden guy, my rpg dream-team would have 108 members on it... So I´ll only recall a few, and the rest of the cast would be filled with random FFVI and Suiko series characters. [b]Zellos (Tales of Symphonia)[/b]: he could be my ideal Tenkai Star (aka the main character). He´s a swordsman, is competent with magic and if he´s in the party, you won´t need to visit item shops any more. Plus, he´s a narcissist beyond redemption, hits everything wearing skirt and has some memorable quotes. Exploring villages with him is fun as hell. Not to mention he´s a design by Fujishima sensei. [b]Chris Lightfellow (Suikoden 3)[/b]: a female knight should be a must in every rpg. And Chris has no match under the sky. Silver hair adds a +25 of coolness. [b]Viktor (Suikoden 2&1)[/b]: he may seem no more than a scary drunkard, but this guy totally rocks. It´s a skilled warrior, has personality, is full of tricks and has witnessed his share of battles. He´s like a life-assurance. I´d definitely want him in my army. [b]Flik (Suikoden 2&1)[/b]: he´s allways hanging around with Viktor, so he should be in as well. He´s a war veteran, a competent magician and knows how to wield a sword. That´s about enough for me to recruit him. [b]Sheena Fujibayashi (Tales of Symphonia)[/b]: she´s hot. She´s adorable. She´s designed by Fujishima sensei. What´s not to love about her? On top of that, no rpg is complete without a demon hunting kunoichi. [b]Setzer (FFVI)[/b]: he could be Zellos' nemesis in the party when chicks are around. He´s cool, he has style and he´s a bon-vivant. Plus, his fighting abilities are somewhat original. That´s exactly the type of character I like most. [b]Jeane (Suikoden saga)[/b]: because she´s Jeane [b]Viki (Suikoden saga)[/b]: because she´s Viki [b]Juan (Suikoden 3)[/b]: one of the most useful rpg characters ever. Not only he´s a hard hitter and a top-class fighter who does triple attacks with critical damage almost every turn; if he´s in your party, the fighting ability of the entire group raises about 25%, and you can level up your skills any time. On top of that, he has a funny personality. Juan=instant win. [b]Loli-Lenneth (Star Ocean 3)[/b]: she has all the goodness of the original Valkyrie Profile Lenneth, plus the moe factor, wich adds a good +250 to her coolness. [b]Lezard Valeth (Valkyrie Profile)[/b]: we need a magician, so here it is the wicked version of Harry Potter. A four eyed lolita lover sorcerer is the perfect complement for my party. [b]Valeria (Suikoden 1&2)[/b]: Let´s add another swordswoman to the group. One never has enough female knights, you know. And Valeria is one of my favourite rpg characters ever. [b]Kika (Suikoden 4)[/b]: we need some pirate girls as well. And Lady Kika just rocks my world with his tattoed hips. She could do a unite attack with Valeria, since they share the same sword rune. [b]Nash Latjke (Suikoden 3 & Suikogaiden)[/b]: with so many cuties around, Nash would have a great time in my army. He would be a great addition to it as well, since he´s a skilled spy, knows the ways of the world and manages himself quite well in combat. He and Viktor would be the main attraction in castle´s tavern. [b]Lulu (FFX)[/b]: because we need to feed the doujinshi writers [b]Hrist (Valkyrie Profile)[/b]: Lenneth eventually dies in an epic cutscene, far into the game (Aerith, anyone? Come on, a good rpg plot needs some melodramatic twists!), and Hrist comes to fill her shoes. [b]Georg Prime (Suikoden 5)[/b]: we need a pure swordsman, and Georg is, storyline-wise, the best swordsman in Suiko world. Plus, his style is battôjutsu, the coolest fencing technic ever, wich also adds a samurai feeling much needed in any dream rpg worth of that name. [b]Ayame (Suikoden 3)[/b]: an army needs as many hot kunoichis as possible. [b]Tir MacDohl (Suikoden 1&2)[/b]: he and his über-powerful true rune would make a cameo, just for the heck of it. And now, on with the rest of the crew: Damsel in distress: obviously, [b]princess Zelda[/b]. Annoying (but funny, nevertheless) secondary boss wich harrasses you many times thoughout the game, like Ultros or the Turks: [b]Calamity Jane (Wild Arms)[/b], because her silly music theme rocked SO HARD. Cute mascot wich dies hero´s death: [b]Hamlet (Illusion of Gaia)[/b], if only because he´s the only rpg mascot wich I don´t seem to hate. Random nice guy who gives you the best powers/technics/items/etc: [b]Faerie (drag) queens from Ocarina of Time[/b], because they were so lovable and had that disturbingly scratchy laughter. Misterious (and pretty cool) character that appears from time to time to lend you a hand when you really need it, but doesn´t join your party till the very end (being the most powerful character of the game): [b]Taki (NamcoxCapcom)[/b]. Why? Because SHE IS TAKI. Period. Item shop owner: [b]Chole (FFVII)[/b], that entity of unknown sex at the Chocobo farm. He/she/it and his/her/its harsh answers were an icon of my late adolescence. And last, but not least, the bad guy: [b]Sephiroth (FFVII)[/b]. I hate to admit it, but I really love this guy. I mean, he´s the perfect villain: he´s an emo, has an overwhelming Oedipus comlex, dresses like a drag queen, wields an unreasonabily long tachi, loathes mankind, impales just for fun those very same giant monsters that use to wipe out your entire party, laughs at the face of the hero many times... god, he even KILLS the friggin' main female character on the story! Waaaay mean. But, apart from his memorable misanthropic quotes, his best feature is the fact that he was actually a nice guy and all, but he went nuts after reading a freaking book, just like Don Quixote. Holy cow, that´s just brilliant. A callous brute indeed, but a brute that you will learn to love :3 And that´s about it. I see a disturbing lack of thieves and white mages/healers in my party but, heck, I really hate those character cathegories.
