Series appearancesEdit

FortressEdit

Balthier was to appear in this cancelled game, where he was to "sweep in to save the day" near the end. The game's premise was to defend a cliffside fortress from invading marine forces of a vengeful sea king in the far uncharted reaches of Ivalice, the defense being led by Basch fon Ronsenburg. It was planned that airships would be inoperable around the fortress because of a flying continent above making the area even more isolated from the rest of Ivalice, but the airspace would be opened during the game allowing with Balthier to arrive and rescue the others from the brink of defeat.[1]

Final Fantasy TacticsEdit

FFT Balthier Portrait

Balthier is a secret playable character, in the War of the Lions remake, and can be recruited by Ramza Beoulve. He can join the party during Chapter 4, after checking the rumor "Rash of Thieves" which occurs in the Merchant City of Dorter. When the thieves spring their trap and attack Ramza's party, they realize they have the wrong man, and Balthier shows up late on scene, and later is willing to join the party. His zodiac sign is Leo.

Balthier's job is Sky Pirate, and as such, wields several blades in battle. He can potentially do the greatest amount of damage in the game with Chaos Blade and Barrage.

Dissidia 012 Final FantasyEdit

Dissidia012 Balthier makes a cameo appearance as one of the tutors of Abilities. He appears alongside Fran and first tells the player; "to obtain more abilities, you need to level up! Also, he explains that just learning new abilities is not enough, and one needs to equip them for them to work. He commends himself as the leading man who can handle the extra abilities. Fran calls him as "Mr. Spotlight".

There is a letter sent by a moogle named Sablé regarding the previous letter he sent entitled "Watching You, Kupo". The letter is about when Vaan, Balthier, Fran and Basch went to Bhujerba's Lhusu Mines to save Penelo from Ba'Gamnan's grasp.

I'm Relieved, Kupo
New intel, kupo! The kidnappers designated a a sky pirate for the rescue, kupo. What a relief, kupo! I was able to keep my cool thanks to your responses, kupo. I hope we can have a more leisurely chat in the future, kupo!

Final Fantasy Record KeeperEdit

FFRK

FFRK Balthier
A sky pirate who boasts [that] his airship, the Strahl, is the fastest in all Ivalice. Balthier prizes freedom above all else, swearing allegiance to neither king nor kingdom. A true and steady ally, he is the quintessential pirate with a heart of gold.
—Character Profile

Balthier is a playable character who could initially be recruited during the Challenge Event The Dreadnought Leviathan. He has since appeared in both Tempered Resolve and Consorting with Sky Pirates.

Assessment

Balthier is a Sky Pirate whose combat role is Physical Attack.

Dashing and debonair almost to a fault, Balther is positioned as one of the game's swiftest attackers and has a broad skill draw, though he is somewhat weak defensively. A gun in his hands should render his shortcomings moot, even if said gun isn't as strong as a sword or a spear, both of which he can use. He has the somewhat unusual role of a Spellblade as well, which may be useful when close-range fighters are unable to hit a target with an elemental weakness.
