I'm sure this has already been asked before but I didn't see anything via the search engine.

So who is your favorite Cid? There are lots to choose from with their own various backstories and characters! Cast your vote in the poll above!



Personally, my favorite is probably Cid Highwind from FFVII. He was the first Cid I remember encountering since first getting into Final Fantasy. Instinctively I always want to vote for my favorite game, and while I do really like Cid from FFIX, I think I like VII's just a little more!

It has to be Cid from VII, I think part of the bias is the fact that this Cid is the only one which is a mainline party member and because so, he had the attention to detail regarding his backstory with Shinra and the Rocket programme.

There are many Cid's I like from other games too, I liked VIII's story with Cid and his shady involvement with Norg, also the reveal of whom is wife was well handled (Could probably have phrased that better...). Even XII, a game I don't compliment often actually had a good antagonist with Cid and his bond with Balthier give much needed personal conflict within the story.

Mine is also Cid from FFVII. When people mention "Cid" he's the first one I think of because he's the one that stood out to me the most out of all the Cids from Final Fantasy.

I guess it's also probably because FFVII's Cid is in other things too - like Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2, Advent Children, and Dirge of Cerberus. It's hard not to remember him.

Seems like Cid in FFVII is a popular #$@%!.

It's also Cid Highwind in VII for me. Love his character, admittedly I never paid much attention to the other FFs Cid characters (and I never even played anything before VII) but don't judge. VII's Cid is amazing.

Wow! I was thinking of voting for Cid Highwind from Final Fantasy VII as my personal favorite Cid, but I didn't expect to see most people vote for him as well. I decided to vote for him because I found him to be the most original one of them all in terms of looks. His outfit fits perfectly with his job class as a pilot which also adds that mechanic look to his personality, which is what I like about this character so much. He is the best Cid ever to be created in the series of Final Fantasy. The is no other Cid that can be compare to him.

"Shut up! Sit your ass down in that chair and drink your goddamn TEA!" Best line ever.

My favorite Cid will always be X Cid, (with X-2 being equally as hilarious to me) just for the interaction and memories I have laughing at him. His voice actor really sold it for me.
I love XII Cid and VII of course as well.
