I was looking in gamespot and I found a thread with the url of this pic and thoery came to me because there are some references between her and cloud. Well I know that some references couldnt mean nothing but,

1.They suppose that her name is Lightning of what I read and well the lightning comes from the sky well comes from the clouds and since they did this with Laguna and Squall they are both water name says wikipedia :D.

2.It starts out in a futuristic sort of town and it starts with a train just like FF7.

3.The soldiers in the trailer reminded me of the one in FF7.

So what do you all think well I certainly know it cant possibbly her daughter or something just some gather up thoughts. What do you guys and girls think? Remember just a thought and if this was already mentiones sorry lol.

Cloud looks better older... he looks silly when he's young! Bit like Sora from Kingdom Hearts.

You could be totally right...or as close as possible to the truth behind this:tmb:
But what kind of name is Lightning? They had so many options: thunder, storm, downpour, drizzle, torrent...:p

Maybe, but Ive seen in Game Spot people calling her Lightning but I dont know why :confused:.

Which is the Japanese word for Lightning? It might be her true name...I mean, they can´t call her Lightning:p It´s a bit ridiculous:o However, we´ll have to wait and see. She is a true mystery...a really cool mistery:D

I agree she is very cool indeed, they can make it like Tidus that meant sun and Yuna that meant moon maybe her true name is something that makes up lightning.

It would be cool if she were Cloud´s daughter...but who would be her mother? Tifa? I still have to watch Advent Children! Is there another woman in Cloud´s life? Well, I heard that not even Tifa was in his life.

Ohhh no no no If she was her daughter, Tifa has to be her mom lol I always cheered for Cloufa is it? or well Tifa and Cloud lol. But who ever is that pink colored hair mystery she is very beautiful I have the feeling that this character, "Lightining" is going to be one of my favorites.

Then I guess we share the same feeling :p I hope she is as interesting as we expect her to be.

Yuna is my favourite FF character up to date...but things might change...who knows? We still have to try XII :p I´ve played the demo and I´m looking forward to having the English version of the game the soonest I can. It´s quite a long wait, I wonder why. We´ll have to wait a lot for XIII. Lightning seems to be the only playable character, I might be mistaken. But the trailer shows she can do many things by herself without anyone´s aid. Poor enemies :D I hope it´s not something like Dirge of Cerberus. She has twin pistols as X-2 Yuna, but Vincent had guns too...I want it to be an RPG!

Yuna now is my fave character too now and yes there still along wait for FFXIII but still we will have FFXII coming I played the demo too and I hope the story is good like the other FFs, ohhh I cant wait to know more about the character. I think the game is RPG but an rpg that doesnt look like an rpg lol because when you see the trailer you can see many options I think its fast pased rpg. But I guess she isnt realeted to Cloud since the diferent sequels are never related but who knows.

She is superb :D

That´s true, but there are always subtle hints and connections among all the FF. Like Cid for example. He is everywhere we look, in different bodies and characters and with different attitudes. Perhaps she isn´t his daughter...she might be his grandchild, we won´t know until we get the final product. It would be nice to know something by now, but I guess than things like that don´t deserve to be spoiled so early.:)

22-06-06, 00:57
Yeah out of topic but why do some ff characters have that... symbol that looks sorta like a Y or heart dont know lol. But I think Cloud had something of it, Squall had a necklace I think, Tidus had a necklace and earings I I think, and Yuna has it on her well shirt's middle. And maybe she could farly related or maybe she is cloud's female side... lol.

Don´t discard that idea! :D I know what you mean. It might be some kind of signature or trademark, that might be what makes them square main characters:p

Actually that was part of her uniform. It's on some sort of transparent silk (What's a better word for this type of fabric?)... I'll try and get a screenshot where you can see the top of her shirt where you can see the fabric better..
Though it really does look like a tattoo. That's what I thought until my brother pointed out that it was part of her shirt.

Yeah thats what they say on Game Spot "Did she raid Yuna's closet?" lol, Yuna looks alittle like her and the outfit sorta looks like Yuna's from X2 from what Ive seen she looks a little like Cloud and a little like Yuna :D. She does look like Yuna sorta http://img220.imageshack.us/img220/5026/itallbeganwhenisawthissphere0f.jpg just compare it to the pic in the first page or in the video sometimes she looks like Yuna.

22-06-06, 03:03
Ohh Ohhh now I know why they call her Lightning its because the thingy in the Final Fantasy Logo its a cloud with a lightning you can see it at the end of the trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1d_6Et1kU_w&search=FF13 .

As much I know about Square Enix (FF team)... that's quite possible.

Because it sells. Cloud's popularity with FF7 has obviously been big. So, why not tap into the market and create something that looks similar to keep the interest flowing.

I personally find cloud and few others from FF quite ridiculous. The guy doesn't look like a guy at all Lol! He seems like a person I could snap on one knee yet he heft that out-of-proportion Zweihander asnd swings it around. It kinda makes me laugh Lol!

Atleast in Soul Calibur, the Zweihander carrying character Nightmare (Later regained his humanity back and turned back to Siegfried) had a bigger body:

Square often seem to re-hash character designs. The Tifa-Garnet-Rinoa designs are very similar. Cloud and Tidus too.

because it's perfect!

I do agree with this statement! :cln:

I found the real proof http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3151333

EGM: What can you tell us about the heroine of FFXIII?
Motomu Toriyama: We can't tell you all the details, unfortunately. Looking at the history of the FF series, there were already female main characters, like in FFVI, FFX, and FFX-2. This time, one of the characteristics of this heroine is that she's not that feminine. I tried to make her someone very strong, independent. When I asked Mr. Nomura to design this character, I requested someone like a female version of Cloud from FFVII.

WOw yeah it seems like they made it to gain the sae popularity as Cloud since He is very popular.

A bit more like Lara Croft then...a strong and independant woman:) I´d rather a Legend Lightning to an AoD Lightning :D
Her strong Cloud resemblance might be the reason why they call her lightning...mmm. I just want to play with our new mysterious not very female friend:o

Yeah I totally agree! :tmb: By the looks of it she does look storng but she seems to have a weakness just like Cloud with Aerith and Zack. Ohh and I forgot to tell that if you check the complete interview it says that the game is rpg just like a predicted :D.

And thus you know why I am not an anime fan ;). A few pics here and there but thats it.

The only Anime I liked was "Gundam Wing" and that would be because Zechs (The lightining Baron) was one cool character (though he could do with a hair cut Lol!)

Found another thing why they call her Lightning, in wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Ff13_2.jpg you can see at the bottom that it says Lightning but it couldnt be the spell since the spell is there and its called thunder they assume her name is Lightning :D.
