One thought on “re:play: Final Fantasy VI Episode 15: World of Ruin

  1. NPCs claim that Kefka is “ruling” the world, and that his “Light of Judgement” falls upon those who displease or oppose him.
    But what does it mean to oppose Kefka? What rules does he set? Which of his servants are set above the others? So far, there isn’t anything.
    It seems that to say that those destroyed by Kefka displeased him is akin to saying those struck by lightning displeased Zeus: superstition. They cast Kefka as a tyrant because that’s less frightening than what he truly is.
    The truth is that Kefka doesn’t take “yes” for an answer, that anyone could be destroyed at any time and there’s nothing they can do to placate him.
