Which of the guardians of light do you feel is similar to final fantasy characters the most?

this is how I see it
1. Sora = Zack
2. Kairi = Garnet (her kh1 or kh2 Manga self is like Aerith)
3. Riku = Kain (thought was Cecil but Nomura said its kain)
4. Axel = Reno
5. Roxas = Cloud (tho Roxas more cheerful and open)
6. Aqua = Tifa (she also similar to lightning, but tifa more)
7. Ventus = Lann (the similarities are strong in both personality and design)

Im not sure about Terra or Xion (or Namine and Xehanort)

Good list, I'd maybe switch Tifa with Rinoa for Kairi.

Terra: I'd say Leon (FFII, because he becomes evil but was being controlled all along and returns to the good side) but I think Angeal (Crisis Core FFVII) is the best choice.
Maybe Clive Rosfield (FFXVI) but we know nothing about him.

Naminé: Lunafreya (FFXV, because of her design and she's underdeveloped) and Relm (FFVI, she likes drawing)

Xion: Vivi (FFIX). They apparently have nothing to do, but their context is very similar: artificial puppets with identity/existential issues who find their place in the world thanks to their friends. Technically Zidane (FFIX) also fits in that category, but Vivi's personality fits better with Xion. Maybe Terra Branford (FFVI).

Xehanort: Hojo (FFVII) for Apprentice Xehanort, Garland (FFIX) for Master Xehanort... almost any villain fits, depending on Xehanort's incarnation.

Interesting topic, many of these can overlap though. I'll start with the main cast.

Sora: (FFVI) Locke~Both seek adventure, have females they care about, can be childish, goofy, fun loving but also have a serious side that comes out when need be.

Riku: (FFIV) Cecil Harvey/Kain~When it comes to Cecil, both use to work for bad guy or did really bad things, went over to the light side and are both changed men. When it comes to Kain, the jealousy aspect.

Kairi: (FFIV) Rosa~Love interest who don't do much but be support for the male lead, get kidnapped, poisoned, stolen heart, killed, however you look at it. Both are sweet and caring people and play big support roles for the heroes be it POH or powerful White Mage.

Axel/Lea: (FFIX) Zidane/Gilgamesh~While Axel isn't a woman chaser, both are charismatic, fun, joke around with both their friends and enemies. Both don't always make the right choices but their hearts are in the right place. Axel's like Gilgamesh for almost similar reasons of being comic relief too.

Roxas: (VI) Terra Brandford/Beatrix (FFIX)~Both Roxas and Terra don't really know how the world work and their creations were not what you would call natural. Both taken by a evil force at birth and do task under their name. And both find new lives once they leave, with both old and new friends at their side. Roxas is like Beatrix in that they both start to realize what they are doing is wrong, but are unsure to leave their leader. Also both Beatrix and Roxas are uber powerful.

Xion: (FFIX) Vivi/Yuna (FFX)~Xion and Vivi are both born as puppets who get caught up in plots far bigger then them. They both question their existence, grow from them, and become greater characters then their original creations intended them to be. They are both one of a kind in their worlds. Xion's like Yuna because she's fully prepared to die for her cause and love ones without hesitation.

Terra: (FFIX) Steiner~Both powerful and strong warriors who are idiots. They follow someone who is clearly evil. But because of how they were raised/trained they respect/honor who they serve. Eventually they come to terms with who they served and what they've done, and become better people afterwords.

Aqua: (FFVI) Celes/Tifa (FFVI)~I literally thought of the Celes jail beat down when Terra and Ven verbally attacked her in Radiant Garden. Both Aqua and Celes are strong magic user fighters and were put in situations where suicide might have been the only way out. Aqua and Tifa both are like the moms/big sisters of their group. I guess Aqua can relate to any FF big sister figure.

Ventus: (FFX) Tidus~I didn't just want to copy Sora's list. Both Ventus and Tidus are supportive, loud, immature, good natured, curious, and want to help those they care about. Both also come from different worlds from their friends and have ties to big evils. Darkness and Sin respectively.

Serah and Noel remind me of Sora and Kairi.

I like and respect your list👍 tho I kinda disagree on this one, I love Tidus and I do agree Ventus and Tidus are slightly similar but tbh Ventus feel more similar to Lann from world of final fantasy, in General there are similarities between characters like Sora Tidus and Ventus, like how all three are cheerful and tend to be naive sometimes, but from what I saw Ven feels slightly smarter among the three, and when it comes to who is loud, then most Kh characters have one or two moments of them being loud, remember Roxas whenever he has headaches or gets angry? Not to mention Lann also is loud sometimes and other FF characters not just Tidus.

but overall that is my personal opinion.

I kept thinking about this thread after I commented and suddenly I remembered Ellone from FFVIII, who has the power to link the consciousness of different people. In a way, it reminds me of Naminé's power over memories and the way they connect people. Both Ellone and Naminé are plot devices with a huge relevance in their respective games... but lack development otherwise.

I was actually going to compare Namine to the Chocobo, but this works too. Both her and Ellone have memory powers, pop in and out of story when it's convenient to the plot, advance segments of the story with their powers then disappear like they were never there. This one's actually spot on perfect.

I didn't see it before but now I also wanna add Rinoa to Kairi's list too. Sorceress and POH stuff.
