OMG this is amazing. I want to comment on Tidus and Yuna's names though. "Tidus" and "Yuna" are words in a language I cant remember for "Sun" and "Moon", a reference to thier romance. Nice touch Square, nice.

After being godmodded to the point where I couldn't even remember how my characters were anymore, I find these tutorials very helpful and well thought out. However, we would love it if you can create even more tutorials to prevent them from becoming Mary Sues. Yes, I do have a pretty good grasp on development to begin with, having ten years of experience, but we could always use a few extra tips :heart:
