Learn to dodge, fool!
WHY ITS MEMORABLE: Albel is the kind of character I love seeing in action because he for the most part uses confidence as fuel for his skills, and even when he's bested, he plays off a loss like a casual gift to his opponents. This quote reminds me best of his personality.

"Master Eraqus, you see, is so afraid of darkness, that he too, has
succumbed--not to darkness, but to light. It shines so bright, he forgets that
light begets darkness. And Aqua and Ventus, their lights shine too bright. It
is only natural that they cast shadows on your heart. Eraqus... He is such a
fool! Light and darkness, they are a balance--one that must always be
maintained. Terra...you are the one who shows the true Mark of Mastery, but he
refuses to see it. And I know why. It is because he fears you. Join me. You and
I can do the worlds much greater good, by wielding light and darkness in equal

~Xehanort, Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep</pre>

GAME: Final Fantasy IX
Peace is but a shadow of death, desperate to forget its painful past... Though we hope for promising years. After shedding a thousand tears, yesterday's sorrow constantly nears. And while the moon still shines blue, by dawn, it will turn to scarlet hue!
WHY ITS MEMORABLE: This one quote has so much meaning behind it in the game. It is depressiong, but hold so much truth about life.

14th Sep 2012, 20:03
GAME: Kingdom Hearts
"One who knows nothing, can understand nothing."
WHY ITS MEMORABLE: It enstilled in me a quest for knowledge and a disdain for ignorance. Ansem is the antagonist and that line was likely one of the most brilliantly crafted taunts I had ever heard. I took it personally, as well, because of the astonishingly intimate nature of the story and characters, and the immense amount of time I had devoted to defeating Ansem.

14th Sep 2012, 20:03

QUOTE AUTHOR: Delita Heiral

QUOTE AUTHOR: Hope Estheim

"But at the end of the day, the lie isn&rsquo;t what matters, it&rsquo;s what you do after you tell it. If you work hard enough, you can make it true."

WHY ITS MEMORABLE: Although its stated in FF-13 it also applies to real life and that if people do something wrong then they can potentially fix things by working hard to do so. It can also be applied to peoples "Hope" and dreams.

Neku Sakuraba: I'm not taking off my pants in the middle of the street! Shiki, DON'T!

Joshua Kiryu: Everyone has their own little internal world - a secret garden only they can enter. Each world follows its own internal logic - individuality. And the logic of one world means nothing in another. Understanding other people isn't hard.....It's Impossible.

Sho Minamimoto: SO ZETTTA SLOWW!!!

GAME: Final Fantasy V
"Enough expository banter! Now we fight like men! And ladies! And ladies who dress like men! For Gilgamesh... it is morphing time!"

GAME: Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Kingdom Hearts 3D
"Got it memorized?"
WHY ITS MEMORABLE: This is not only Lea/Axel's catch phrase but one of the most memorable quotes in the Kingdom Hearts series. As Lea explained to Isa in Birth by Sleep, "I want everyone I meet to remember me. Inside people's memories, I can live forever." It's a phrase that was passed onto Roxas and Xion as well.

GAME: Kingdom Hearts II


QUOTE: "Sora. You're lucky. Looks like my summer vacation is...over."

WHY ITS MEMORABLE: This quote really stuck with me for some reason. Roxas has realized what his fate is and his first thought is vacation, from being a Keyblade Wielder, former member of Organization XIII, and the Nobody of Sora has now come to an end. For those six days he got to be his own person and have friends but now it all ends. Roxas has such a sad story which is why I'm glad he got a happy ending in Kingdom Hearts II.

14th Sep 2012, 20:37
GAME: Final Fantasy 7




Well to me it looks like a golden shiney wire of hope.


WHY IT IS MEMORABLE: It is an odd line, but one of the few times that shows Barret really does try to see the good in a situation, as bizzar as it is at this point.

14th Sep 2012, 20:46
GAME: Kingdom Hearts




My friends are my power, and I'm theirs'!


WHY IT'S MEMORABLE: When Sora shouts these words, they tell the culmination of his journey and the strength he has found throughout it. From starting off as a naive boy eager to explore with Riku and Kairi, Sora has lost his home, lost his friends, and lost his strength to fight the darkness. But now he realizes that he doesn't need his Keyblade, only the power he gets from the friends he's made while sealing the Keyholes. It's the power of his heart and those connected to it that gives him what he needs to find Kairi, find the King, and to conquer the darkness.

14th Sep 2012, 20:57
GAME: Final Fantasy XII


QUOTE: "What is the going rate for rescuing princesses these days? Food would be a good start. The good stuff, mind you."

WHY ITS MEMORABLE: This is arguably Balthier's best line in the game. His excellent sarcastic quips set himself apart from all the other characters.

14th Sep 2012, 21:26
Game: Final Fantasy Dissidia [012] Duodecim

Quote Author: Lightning

Quote: "I make my own fate."

Why it's memorable: Because it shows that everyone has his/her own story and that he/she will shape it themselves. It is also true in reality as we go through life making descisions of our own. I like to say this when someone always tells me that I can't make it. Telling them that they are not the ones who control my life and destiny

14th Sep 2012, 22:16
QUOTE AUTHOR: Squall Leonhart

Friend or foe, it depends on the circumstances. That's how we're raised, it's nothing special.

WHY ITS MEMORABLE: Squall Leonhart is my favourite character from SQUARE ENIX´s universe, because his personality is something I can identify with my own. He relies more in his knowledge and reason, more than in brute force. He is the kind of person that thinks before act, even before speak or talk to someone (though his gunblade speaks for him when it comes to Seifer). This quote its memorable, because in life, sometimes, even the best of your friends might be against you, not necesarily in a war, but it happens to stand in our way, or people that disagree with our goals and actions. And like in the phrase, we are raised that way, to confront each other, depending on the circumstances of our lives. It´s to win or win. You don´t need to hate someone to be his foe. This happens with nations as well, and as an "International Relations" student, I am aware of that.

Thanks in advance for your help and I can't wait to see what memorable dialogue has stuck with you most!

QUOTE AUTHOR: Barret Wallace


"There ain't no gettin' offa this train we're on"

15th Sep 2012, 07:09
GAME: Final Fantasy XII
The past can bind a man as surely as irons
WHY IT'S MEMORABLE: In this scene, the characters just realized they all missed someone in their lives and Reddas just gives this a perfect conclusion. Not only applicable to the game's story but also in real life: when we go through a difficult period of our existence, we can't just forget it once and for all, there's always someone or something reminding us of it; and it builds us up to move forward as much as it can destroy us.

15th Sep 2012, 07:21
Game: Final Fantasy VIII

Quote Author: Squall Leonhart



Right and wrong are not what separate us and our enemies. It's our different standpoints, our perspectives that separate us. Both sides blame one another. There's no good or bad side. Just two sides holding different views.


Why It's memorable: This is a quote that doesn't just apply in video games, but in reality as well.

This quote has been the staple of what I belive in the world.

15th Sep 2012, 08:31
cloud:Are sins...ever forgiven?

vincent:...I've never tried.

cloud:you mean?..."never tried"...

the reason I think it's my favourite quote: in my opinion it is talking about the hardest work of humans when they are guilty even a little bit forgiving themselves.another reason is you can never know if the work you want to do will fail or succeed unless you try and if something is never tried by someone it doesn't mean it's impossible.

15th Sep 2012, 08:59
GAME: Kingdom Hearts
I've been having these weird thoughts lately... Like, is any of this for real, or not?
WHY IT'S MEMORABLE: I think it applies to everyone in some stage of their life; we question reality, the validity of our thoughts and if we exist or are just a flower to be buried under the snow. Everyone goes through some stage where they have weird thoughts that may or may not eventually change the rest of their lives. Sora's thoughts happened to put him on an epic journey and I'd like to believe mine will do the same.

15th Sep 2012, 09:04
GAME: Final Fantasy XIII-2


QUOTE: " When reaching for the future, we sometimes fall into the past. As we gaze upon events that cannot be changed, our hearts grow bitter with regret. "

WHY ITS MEMORABLE: It's memorable because that quote from lightning it makes me think of how we're going to be like in the future, how hard we're trying to suceed our dreams but sometimes we must go back to the past do remember what we've done wrong to never do those mistakes again.

15th Sep 2012, 12:32

Auhor: Kain highwind

Quote: Cecil, Rosa. I have no right to bear witness to your joy, not like this. I will temper myself here, on Mount ordeals. And when, when I've become an even finer dragoon than my father, perhaps then I can return. Until that day comes, I can but wish you well

Why memorable: I think that everyone think the same for someone, but no one do it

15th Sep 2012, 13:50
GAME: Final Fantasy VI
QUOTE AUTHOR: Kefka Palazzo
This is ridiculous! You sound like chapters from a self-help booklet!
WHY ITS MEMORABLE: Although I've always suspected this line was a Woolseyism that was not present in the original script, it's still Kefka's best line that wasn't lost in translation.

15th Sep 2012, 15:26
GAME: Final Fantasy X
The people and the friends that we have lost, or the dreams that have faded... Never forget them.
WHY ITS MEMORABLE: The final line of the game, and how Yuna feels about Tidus.


GAME: Final Fantasy XIII
We live to make the impossible, possible. That is our focus.
WHY ITS MEMORABLE: Amidst all that was going on, and how terrible it looked for the L'cie, Lightning still manages to pump out a meaningful final speech.


GAME: Final Fantasy XIII
We held the light of hope in our hearts, and achieved the impossible. Now we live on... To greet a new dawn.
WHY ITS MEMORABLE: Vanille pretty much stating that they had finally performed a miracle, and that they would continue to watch over the world till the end of time.


GAME: Crisis Core - Final Fantasy VII -
Hey, would you say I became a hero?
WHY ITS MEMORABLE: Not only is it the very last line of the game, but it's the question he'd been asking the entire game.

15th Sep 2012, 16:06
GAME: Final Fantasy X
Listen to my story, this may be our last chance.
WHY ITS MEMORABLE: This opening line dictates everything in life. We are all living our own stories and it could end at any given moment. When we become attached to the world by the telling of our lives those experiences make life meaningful to a select few and they carry those stories and integrate them into the next telling.

I've even had this quote engraved onto my laptop.

15th Sep 2012, 21:23

"As long as you don't get your hopes up, you can take anything... You feel less pain."

"Rinoa... Even if you end up as the world's enemy... I'll... I'll be your Knight."

"I don't want to carry someone else's burden."

"To tell you the truth... I worry too much about what others think of me."

"I hate having nothing to do. It gets me thinking too much."

"Someday you're bound to lose everything. Everybody around will be gone. Then what are you left with? Nothing. Nobody... It's so miserable. And inevitable. It's so hard to recover from something like that. I never want to deal with that again. I can't. Even if it means being alone."

"I don't need you to understand me."

"Just another stupid story by a boring adult."

Why its memorable:

Game: The World Ends With You

Quote Author: Sho Minamimoto a.k.a. Pi-Face (lol)



So zetta slow.


WHY ITS MEMORABLE: One of the best antagonists in gaming history (to me), was a real challenge during fights and had top-notch math quotes. Other than that, he always went over the limit in anything he was doing to reach his goal.

Robert Peeler said: I love that quote!

Same here, Robert.


Just like this one: I am Freya! Recall the name on your journey through Hell.

18th Sep 2012, 18:39
Whoa, everybody already said a lot of my favourite quotes, lol. But I still got a couple. Here's one I actually know by heart...


Game: Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep

Quote Author: Terra (to Riku)

Quote: "In your hand, take this key. So long as you have the makings, then through this simple act of taking, it's wielder you shall one day be. And you will find me, friend. No ocean will contain you then. No more borders around, or below or above. So long as you champion, the ones you love."

Why it's Memorable: There are actually a lot of reasons why I love this quote. First off, this is the scene where we see Riku gain his ability to wield a keyblade, and we see a Terra perform perhaps his only true act as a Keyblade Master by bestowing the ability. I love the irony that the characters that struggle with the darkness the most are actually connected early on to boot. Then of course there's the actual speech itself. Terra ad-libs half the speech, tailoring it to what he knows about Riku, and what he himself feels. But the core message in the speech is what I believe to be what the Kingdom Hearts series has always been about: friendship. To fight for your friends, to protect them, to be with them, to do everything you can to be together forever...It's such pure and simple concept, and ends up being the driving force for many things that happen throughout the series.

23rd Sep 2012, 19:53

QUOTE AUTHOR: Freya Crescent



To be forgotten is far worse than death.


WHY IT[']S MEMORABLE: I think back on renknown people who's memory has outlasted their life by an exponent of their living years. Take Cerdic of Wessex for example, he died back in 300 A.D. and his memberance lives on today! I mean the guy carried a friggen harpoon to his dinner table for crying out loud!

23rd Sep 2012, 20:18
Well, someone already posted it, but this is just to prove how epic this quote is.

GAME: Kingdom Hearts - Birth by Sleep
QUOTE AUTHOR: Master Xehanort
Master Eraqus, you see, is so afraid of darkness, that he too, has succumbed&mdash;not to darkness, but to light. It shines so bright, he forgets that light begets darkness.
WHY ITS MEMORABLE: Master Xehanort, while trying to justify his actions and why Terra should do the same, makes simple and plain the theme of Kingdom Hearts. Like Yen Sid said "After all, light begets darkness, and darkness is drawn to light." But Xehanort makes clear that falling to light isn't good either. Light and Darkness should walk hand to hand and that's why Riku is so epic.

26th Sep 2012, 20:30
I cannot choose one its almost impossible ;p. If I may I like to propose two if I may:


GAME: Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep

QUOTE AUTHOR: Ansem the Wise

QUOTE: "I would like to believe maybe he can set things right, a boy like him who touches so many hearts."

WHY ITS MEMORABLE: When Ansem said this it hit me hard. At the end of the game when all goes wrong for the three heroes it gives you hope that Sora can save everyone and do it in the most cheerful manner. Ansems whole speech at the end had me in tears and actually very cheerful and happy. Only Kingdom Hearts can pull that kind of emotion out of its fans.


GAME: Final Fantasy Versus XIII

QUOTE AUTHOR: Noctis Lucis Caelum

QUOTE: "Fools set the rules in this world. Just take a look around. It's undeniable."

WHY ITS MEMORABLE: I read this for the first time about a year and a half ago in a forum (I think neogaf). I found it very cynical and very true at the same time. Noctis is has a very calm and collective nature about him. So when he speaks it sounds like its an absolute. He speaks in absolutes. And plus it sounds very cool :D.

4th Oct 2012, 23:19
GAME:The World Ends With You

QUOTE AUTHOR: Sho Minamimoto


WHY ITS MEMORABLE: Never has a game racked my brain this hard before.

Why it's notable: Cause it was stated by Geno and that was his most epic line in this game.

Game: Valkyrie Profile 2

Quote Author: Lezard Valeth

Quote: "I will not deny you tried, but crude effort is no match for true ability."

Why it's memorable: I've always loved Lezard's character, and this quote fits his persona perfectly. It always made me laugh when I heard this at the end of a battle.

27th May 2013, 13:07
Game: Final Fantasy X

Quote Author: Seymour

Quote: "Pitiful Mortal! Your Hope ends here, and your meaningless existence with it!"

Why it's memorable: You've almost made it to Zanarkand, the end of the pilgrimage is in site, you enter a cut scene and who should show up? Seymour, no matter you've killed him twice already, but this time hes back with a vengeance. After a small dialouge he goes into the giant monster machine and kills the hell outta you multiple times unless you've done some serious work on your characters sphere grids. He killed me about 20 times and after each death I ran back down Gagazet to train my people more until I finally beat him. I heard him say it so many times that quote is burned into my memory.
