Although it’s a constant topic for debate, many people consider the cast of Final Fantasy VI to be one of the strongest in the series due to its memorable characters that appear on both sides of the fence.
We also got to see a female lead in the Final Fantasy series for the first time and were introduced to the glorious Kefka Palazzo.
Final Fantasy VI features a whopping sixteen protagonists to choose from. Many of these have become household names in the minds of Final Fantasy fans due to their sheer diversity and the depth of story presented throughout the narrative.

Kekfa, oh Kefka. Perhaps the most evil of all Final Fantasy antagonists, he is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve ultimate power. Ultros and Typhon also appear to make things even more interesting.
To supplement the rather expansive list of protagonists, Final Fantasy VI features plenty of supporting characters. Many of these are tied to the protagonists, as the writers looked to provide detailed back stories to help explain character motivations.
