As I whole, I have founded Runic more useful than morph.. I don't really see what's so great about morph, but Runic has helped me more than enough times. I also like her plotline a bit more than Terra's.
I like them both, but for this poll I went with Celes.
Both of them have the most interesting back stories in the game(one a hardened Magitek Knight who rediscovers her heart, while one is an Imperial experiment who wants to know what love is) and both have very balanced stats and very similar equipment.
Terra was easily the center of the game in the first half, but after
Kefka throws the world into chaos
Celes and her search for the gang becomes the center of the game. At the end of the game they both are very changed characters, more profoundly changed comapred to their allies.
I saw that Square did try to seriously make women the protagonists of the games, and this time, they did it with a flourish, hence why FFVI is one of the best.
I consider both as the main character of the series (Terra in the World of Balance and Celes in the World of Ruin)
Both are strong gals but I prefer Terra because she have more "feminine" charm than Celes. And she would make a good mother (she already did XD). If Terra is a real person, I would find her and ask her to go out with me
Good poll question, I can see why they're neck and neck ...
I prefer Terra, but I always used them both on my team. Celes seemed to have better strength, while Terra was better with magic. But there were only slight difference between the two! So I always equipped Celes with the Genji Glove + Offering/Excalibur and Ultima Weapon, and gave Terra the Gold Hairpin + Gem Box. Terra Ultimas the &#$* out of everything, while Celes slices and dices everyone to bits. It's a great combination. XD
Terra = 'Main Character' of the world of balance
Celes = 'Main Character' of the world of ruin
So basically there are two main characters for FFVI (Well for what I think)
I prefer Terra because the whole . . . learning ultima early. I also loved her story throughout the game.
