I'm glad you noticed the airbrushed abs as well! xD When I played it recently, I was surprised at how fake they looked... o_o

I think this video pretty much sums up all the FF characters' hatred towards Vaan. xD (I wasn't sure how to do the YouTube tag thing...)

all the abs in that game look painted on except in the cut scenes they look pretty real... Vaan may act tough but its mostly cause he feels he has to set an Example for the little ones he helps take care of... he had been doing it for 2 years and gets sucked into everything and it was kinda his personality then.. call it a habit that becomes part of you completely

Final Fantasy fan at its finest. Final Fantasy is awesome. PM me to chat about the games...
Reks was better
Seriously? Vaan was okay, but his contribution to the storyline was minimal, Reks contributed more that vaan and he was there for like 15 - 20 mins...
Vaan was there for the 9999999999999 + game hours
Looking aside that though Vaan is not that bad but I don't think he should've been the main character...

Did i like Vaan? We considering I really really didn't like XII as a whole, the answer is no. You are meant to care about the characters and in a FF you must be able to relate and warm to them but the whole crew were just like hollow shells. There was no reason at all why the 6 of them should get together and become a party, none whatsover. There were no inter-character relationships to speak of so why they travelled the world together was bizarre. Then you have Vaan who is just a boring, personalitiless child but for some reason, he's the lead character in FFXII. No, sorry, you just can't have such a weak and unimportant as the lead person in a FF game.
I agree with many of the negative comments above me so I don't want to repeat too much that has already been said.
Vaan is the worst MC (I think he is) ever, lack of personality, usefulnes in party, NOTHING relevant for th history Vaan is boring not awful.The only rescatable part of Vaan is when he ask Fran for her age, thats the only part that made me smile, but I love FF XII is just that the history and characters are uninpresive.
"No human is above the animal, thats just Arrogance"
I am one of those people that just did not have a problem with Vaan, he obviously isn't the greatest main character ever but he is tolerable. The game is great and well he was easy to tolerate and continue the story rolling....now Fran that is another question *gets knife*.

I have absolutely no problem with him.. He may officialy be the main character but the truth is I didnt even use him and the story revolves around bash, ashe and balthier (those were my party). He was not annoyingly cheerful nor he was some mysterious depressed entity. He was uninteresting but likeable in my opinion.

When we are first introduced to Vaan in the game I kinda liked him. I sympathized with the "street rat" character he had. But as the game went on he kinda became boring to me. And then I realized he had very little purpose in the story so it just came to a point where I just didn't care for him all that much. I cared a lot more about Ashe, Basch, and Balthier (the only characters I really liked in the game). But I wouldn't say that I hate him. I'm just kind of indifferent towards him.
As for his abs: yeah, I have to agree they just don't look natural. lol.

I feel that Vaan is the character that we are meant to connect to. There is supposed to be a lot going on in this war against the Empire and as Vaan learns about it, we are supposed to as well. My problem with this is that Vaan is an average, young kid that you really don't see grow as a character. He has big dreams of becoming a sky pirate but I really don't see him push towards those goals. I often forget why he is even there sometimes, as does the characters since they question what he's looking for in this adventure several times. To summarize my feelings about Vaan, I don't hate him. He's a good kid, he's just not contributing as much to the overall story as others are. But this is a Final Fantasy game and I'm eager to play someone who is a badass or at very least has some depth. I suppose that's why I always play with Basch as my leader in XII.
