Final Fantasy 16 Pays Homage To An Old Fan Favorite Party Member

Fans of Final Fantasy 16 have stumbled upon a delightful easter egg paying tribute to one of the most beloved characters from Final Fantasy IX. Players exploring the vast fields of the game will find scarecrows which bear a striking resemblance to Vivi, the adorable black mage who left the community grieving at the end of Final Fantasy IX.

If players focus on the scarecrow’s hat and eyes, they will notice the similarities with Vivi’s yellow eyes and mage hat. Vivi is a playable character in Final Fantasy IX and is the narrator of the game’s monologue. His iconic closing lines, “Farewell. My memories will be part of the sky,” still resonate with ardent fans of the franchise.

But that’s not all. The infamous Spoony Bard, aka Edward, from Final Fantasy IV also makes a return in Final Fantasy 16. Fans are delighted to see this unexpected appearance and the humorous touch of being named Spoony Bard, paying homage to the famous quote by Tellah, “You Spoony Bard!” aimed at Edward.

The developer’s attention to detail and inclusion of references to popular characters has been widely acclaimed by the community. Fans are eagerly anticipating discovering more easter eggs throughout the game. With so many already discovered early on, there are sure to be more surprises in store.
