Welcome to the look-alike thread. Have you ever encountered a character inside or outside of the SQUARE ENIX universe that reminds you of another character? Then tell us about it here in this thread. Anything goes (people, items, locations, etc.) as long as it is somehow connected to SQUARE ENIX.


Starting off with:
Rai - Ginga Sengoku Gunyuuden Rai
And:
Zack Fair - CRISIS CORE -FINAL FANTASY VII-

Also: Who's that Flower Girl pusher? It's Ethan!

Okay here we go...





First up, we have Spectra Phantom (real name: Keith Fermin) from Bakugan New Vestroia and Bakugan Mechtanium Surge. He is characterized as a 21-year-old spiky blond-haired man with lifeless blue green eyes (that are often hidden behind his mask) and a rather menacing personality. He noticeably grins and smirks a lot in order to intimidate his opponents...and it goes along with his rather creepy (Japanese) and/or sophisticated (English) voice.

Second, we have Faust (real name: Toby) from Metal Fight Beyblade Baku (aka: Beyblade Metal Masters). He is known as a gloomy long silver-haired kid who got experimented upon so he became even more gloomy before some Spiky black-haired kid knocked some sense into him. Faust notably has a low and melancholic voice for such young age.

(Note: Beyblade and Bakugan have the same Character Designer for the anime series ~ Yoshihiro Nagamori)





Third, we have the Spiky black-haired kid named Masamune Kadoya from the same series as Faust who also happens to be his friend.

Fourth, we have these three men named Dallas.


Dallas from Valkyrie Profile II Silmeria

Dallas from Y's Origin, a Japan exclusive series of RPGs

So then, I wonder who these six individuals resemble...

Well then, I'll take the easiest one:

Aww but what about the rest of the Dallas? XD


...and the three differently-named men?

I thought I'd save the SOLDIER operatives etc. for the other members, that's all. ^_-





Speaking of which: Who, whose name begins with the letter "L" and ends with "zard", does Lazard from - CRISIS CORE -FINAL FANTASY VII- look like? semna4.webs.com/CC_Lazard_1.jpg (http://semna4.webs.com/CC_Lazard_1.jpg)

Dallas, please stop hurting yourself. XD





> L-zard


I'd say he would be Dallas' apprentice and the embodiment of bespectacled evil in the Valkyrie Profile series. XD

Ok so I thought these two looked very similar. They even went down to using the same colors.

Chris Thorndyke- Sonic X


Sora- Kingdom Hearts


There is a resemblance here too

I think we should rule out the fact about Axel and Reno since they are intentional look-a-likes from the same maker.

Never really thought of that Grimoire. Come to think of it now though, their facial features look similar as well as their outfits.

Read the topic before posting. None of those characters have anything to do with Square Enix. Besides, that's not a look-alike, but an intentional reuse of the same character design by the artist.

Indeed. Actually, the Rikku sketch was drawn before Nomura decided to go with Yuffie instead, but since they are so similar he only redrew a few details instead of starting over from scratch.

I guess that is intentional for some reason. We will find out later in the game..... probably.

100% intentional, I'd say.

Lumina is a very unique type of character.


Maybe she is playing with Lightning’s feelings by taking advantage of her love for Serah and lures her to do certain actions.
