Final Fantasy VIII Edit

VIII In the Japanese version, Gilgamesh's line, "Huh? Was it you...?" when he appears is "「ん? オマエなのか・・・・? バ・・・・?」" ("Huh? Was it you...? Ba...?"). The "Ba...?" in the end could mean he was talking about Bartz (バッツ, Battsu?), though he does not appear in the game. It is possible that Gilgamesh, at first glance, thought Squall Leonhart was Bartz due to their somewhat similar appearances.

Who's Who
CV: Jason Spisak / Soichiro Hoshi
Age in Grymoire: 20
Notes: Travels with a chocobo / Believes helping strangers is just what you do / Tied by fate to someone not-so-great
Road Warrior
Wherever the wind blows, there you will find Bartz and his constant companion, Boko. Sometimes treasure hunter, sometimes monster hunter, sometimes champion of justice—whatever Bartz is up to today, you know it'll be for the good of thos in need. No matter how difficult the challenge, he'll solve it with style and aplomb before disappearing into the sunset.
Bartz's quest to explore the world isn't mere fancy, but rather the dying wish of his father.
Nothing can contain Bartz's boundless enthusiasm and thirst for adventure. With a sack over his shoulder and a song in his heart, he travels from place to place, a smile on his lips as he faces even the most hopeless of situations. He can even match the ever-exuberant Rikku's excitement levels, and that's no easy feat.
Perhaps Bartz has doubts and worries like anyone else, and never lets them show. Or...maybe he really is just that carefree. But once Bartz decides to involve himself in something, he'll see it through to the end. "Never give up" is his motto, and he never has.
