Top 10 Square Enix Couples

Above: Remember, in RPGs of yore, you could name playable characters anything you wanted - here, Purim is named "Jess"

6) Purim + Dyluck (Secret of Mana, SNES)

Who they are: A fearless adventurer and a soldier.

Why they're the best: Purim would go to hell and back to save Dyluck, as she proves no less than twice in the game’s storyline. She’s so determined that she’s even willing to put total strangers in harm’s way to get into the dungeon where he’s being kept. Dyluck, in turn, never gives up hope that his lady love is coming to save him, even after he gets passed from one boss henchman to another. It may be the reverse of traditional gender roles in fantasy games, but Dyluck isn’t threatened by Purim wearing the pants. This relationship survived oppression from the Empire; it can certainly survive a bit of gender-bending.

What they teach us: Love is about sacrifice. Sacrificing strangers, specifically.

    About Final Fantasy VIII: Rinoa and Seifer were not boyfriends, only had a relationship purely business. Rinoa was confused about her feelings (as Quistis to Squall) and that's why she THOUGHT loved Seifer. Rinoa in the game NEVER says and ensures that Seifer was her boyfriend.

    Didn't Squall go all the way into outer space and save Rinoa just to hand her over to the authorities in order to save her again?

    Wow, how nostalgic. I remember playing FFVIII as a kid, it was the first game for my first system. Too bad I never beat the final boss, and now the game is bugged on the second disk (>.<). Guess I'll never beat it now. Also, that was a great ending. I don't know if it was all the extra time I put in it (damn level grind), but that has to be the best game ending I've ever seen (which isn't saying much for every game I've played between that one and now). BTW-- How can this article have no comments?!?! Seriously, two years and nothing? Well, guess I just fixed that problem.
