Welcome to Gaia! ::

I've been thinking... I have played every main FF title except for V, and I can't think of any main characters with glasses! Why is that?

I mean... sure there are some characters with glasses, like Jihl from FF XIII. And they give them to scientists like Hojo 'cause it's Cliche, but never main party members...
Quistis from ff8? She wears glasses on and off.
Ah, isn't one of mains from Versus wearing specs?

Who had glasses...

FF1: no body... since graphic only allowed the character to have 3 colors at max

FF2: Same reason as above

FF3: Cid had goggles

FF4: Cid had goggles, Tellah and Lugae has glasses

FF5: Mid and Cid had glasses

FF6: nobody...

FF7: Cide had goggles again...Hojo had glasses (like you said)

FF8: Cid and Quistis had glasses (Quistis doesn't always wear her glasses)

FF9: Baku had goggles

FF10: Nobody


but it's true that not to many people have glasses most of it is probably because that in the older games, it's harder to show glasses when you are limited. But even the later games didn't have many people with glasses. I think it's because they are fighting and if they needed glasses, they didn't wear them when fighting. Who knows.

I don't really consider Goggles to be quite the same as glasses, but you did come up with a few examples I have forgotten about.

And yeah I guess you are right about being harder to show in older games. But they could still wear glasses when fighting, people do it frequently in anime and other games!

Would Auron be counted? His look more like sunglasses and whilst I know you can get sunglasses that can actually be prescription glasses we don't know if they are so given that they look more like sunglasses then actual glasses I don't know if we should count them or not.

Not a main playable character but Dr. Cid from XII also had glasses.
******** Al-Cid.

I don't care if they were sun glasses. He was too bad a**.

Gotta wear shades all the time, when his future is so damn bright.

Lightning will be wearing sunglasses in the upcoming Lightning Returns game. Cloud also wears sunglasses as well in later parts of the Compilation after Final Fantasy VII.

Then again, they're sunglasses.... sad
