Square Enix seems to be under the impression that people love Lightning, the main character of the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy. In fact, according to FFXIII director Motomu Toriyama, Lightning is so beloved that she might start getting Square Enix Cameo Treatment.
“We know that Lightning is an extremely popular character, even when compared to other Final Fantasy characters,” Toriyama told Siliconera. “So there is a possibility that Lightning would appear in other future Final Fantasy titles, not as a protagonist, but as a guest character.”
Is she really all that popular, though? FFXIII and its sequels have been polarising, and I’ve seen a lot of negative reactions toward the moody pink-haired protagonist. But it’s hard to measure Internet opinion on something like this… so let’s do an unofficial poll.
