ProfileEdit

AppearanceEdit

Default
  • Akademeia Winter Uniform I - Default coloration. Ace's main appearance (FFType0-AceRender2) in Final Fantasy Type-0. He wears a black jacket with gold shoulder pauldrons, white pants, a brown pouch on his left thigh, and a red cape that represents Class Zero.
  • Akademeia Winter Uniform II - 1st alternate coloration. Recolors his uniform to resemble his Gold Mantle (FFType-0HD Extra Costume) attire from the HD re-release.
  • Akademeia Winter Uniform III - 2nd alternate coloration. Recolors his uniform to resemble his Formal Uniform (Ace-type0-psp-model-dress), complete with white gloves.
1st Alternate Costume
  • Akademeia Summer Uniform I - Default coloration. Ace dons his Summer Uniform (Ace-type0-psp-model-summer) from Final Fantasy Type-0: a white shirt with black details and the Vermilion Bird crest, a black necktie, black pants and the same pouch and red cape of the Winter Uniform. Ace wears a pair of black gloves with white-striped details.

  • Akademeia Summer Uniform III - 2nd alternate coloration. Recolors his shirt red with white accents, his pants black, his cape red, and his shoes gray.
Weapons

Ace equips magically-infused cards:

  • Deck of Cards - Default weapon. A deck of silver cards with blue accents and details.
  • Akademeia Deck - 1st alternate weapon. A deck of red cards decorated with the Vermilion Bird crest.
  • Reaper's Tarot - 2nd alternate weapon. A deck of oblong black cards accentuated with a steel gray palisade gate design, and marked with the face of the grim reaper.
  • Magician's Deck - 3rd alternate weapon.

Bar his default weapon, Final Fantasy Type-0 did not render Ace's cards in-game, and the Dissidia series is the first instance in which they have original designs. Ace's cards are all wielded by him in Final Fantasy Type-0.

Ace's default player name is Nameless Student. His manikin counterpart, the Discarded Delinquent, is red.

StoryEdit

It is unknown if Ace was summoned to World B and then later dismissed from there sometime between the first and the eleventh cycles.

Unlike most of Materia's warriors, Ace was only summoned shortly after Shinryu's defeat in order to assist in the restoration of the world.

Ace interacts with Firion, Zidane Tribal, and Vaan near Materia's domain. Ace comments to the others that he feels trepidatious because he never fought alongside anyone besides his classmates. When Firion asks if they were his friends back at home, he replies that he doesn't consider them as such. Ace restates that they were his classmates and adds that some were very disorderly while others snooped around. After he states that his classmates back at home are like siblings, the other three comment that they could relate: Zidane considers his traveling troupe his family, Firion was orphaned twice and was taken in by a rebel group that he treats like family, and Vaan is looked up to as a big brother by younger orphans in the streets of Rabanastre. After Zidane shows surprise to the fact that others see Vaan as a leader, Firion replies that he is not surprised due to Vaan's natural charisma. After Ace complains that everyone around him on campus just want attention and that they think they're all that, Zidane comments that Ace's situation is similar to that of one who has a big brother, referencing Kuja.

After the world's restoration is complete, the moogles give Ace a crystal to host his memories for Materia to use in the upcoming infinitely long war. With a crystal doppelgänger of himself to serve on Materia's behalf, Ace returns to his home world.

GameplayEdit

Type: Marksman - Ace is a balanced fighter with an arsenal of explosive skills, but can also charge most of his HP attacks for greater area of effect.
EX Skill: Cut Cards - Draw one card of a random color, with a maximum stock of four. Activate the top card's effect by holding down DFF2015 I Icon. The effect is enhanced if Ace has multiple cards of that color.
