EtymologyEdit

Dissidia is the plural form of discidium, alternatively spelled dissidium, meaning "discord, disagreement". It is related to the verb dissidere, "to disagree"; this and related terms have given rise to words in various languages with similarly intended meaning (e.g. English dissident, Italian dissidio, Portuguese dissidente).

TriviaEdit

  • With the exception of Opera Omnia, following Rinoa Heartilly's inclusion in Dissidia NT, Final Fantasy VIII features the most playable characters in the fighting game series, having had a total of four characters across all games.
