Biggs and Wedge, also known as Vicks and Wedge in the SNES translation, are temporary playable characters in Final Fantasy VI. They are soldiers of the Gestahlian Empire, and accompany Terra Branford on her mission to Narshe at the beginning of the game.
Ted Woolsey, the game's original translator, translated them as Vicks and Wedge. Vicks was changed back to Biggs in subsequent re-releases.
Appearance and PersonalityEdit

The three are sent to Narshe to investigate a frozen Esper the miners of the town have dug up in the mountain. Though skeptical, they presume Terra's presence means their superiors are taking the rumors seriously. The three march on the town, putting Terra on point, and fight through Narshe's guards to reach the Narshe Mines. The three battle a monster called Ymir that the guards have trained to guard the mine, and destroy it.
In a new shaft in the mine, the three find the frozen Esper Valigarmanda, but as they approach it, it begins to react to Terra's presence and glows. Biggs and Wedge promptly vanish in flashes of light and are presumably killed.
Biggs and Wedge are temporary characters, and have no innate special ability. However, because they are always seen riding Magitek Armor, they have access to the Magitek command in place of the Attack command. They begin the game at Level 1 and are both equipped with a Mythril Blade, Buckler, Leather Hat, and Leather Armor, but their equipment cannot be changed.
Biggs and Wedge make a small cameo in Dissidia Final Fantasy as tutors from the in-game manuals. Biggs jokes about his name being mistranslated as Vicks, but assures the player that it is Biggs.
- Two soldiers called Vicks/Biggs and Wedge appear in Chrono Trigger, as employees in Norstein Bekkler's Tent of Horrors. A V-Jump issue in Japan humorously state that after Valigarmanda made them disappear in Final Fantasy VI, they ended up in the Chrono Trigger dimension and were found by Norstein, who gave them their new jobs.
- Valigarmanda dispatches Wedge first, then Biggs. This reflects Star Wars in that Wedge was forced to withdraw from the battle after his fighter was damaged, and afterwards Biggs's fighter was destroyed.
- Early screenshots of the game's Japanese version call Biggs, レオ (Reo?), and Wedge, バナン (Banan?), respectively. Interestingly, these are the Japanese names of Leo and Banon.
