Dissidia Final Fantasy (2008)Edit
As Chaos's right-hand warrior, Garland knows the war's true nature and its endless cycle, giving him an advantage above the other warriors. Confident he will be reborn no matter how often he is struck down, he enjoys the battles of the war and appears to attack the heroes several times, and acts as counsel to the warriors. However, Garland's true connection to Chaos and the cycle of war is not revealed until the game's final storyline, when the Warriors of Chaos act of their own volition and desert Chaos. This leaves Garland as the only warrior standing alongside the god of discord, when he reveals the truth to him.
Garland's alternate outfit gives his armor a sepia color tone to give it a weathered look.
Garland plays a minor role, taunting Lightning about the manikins and later acting as the final boss of Scenario 012 in battle against her. He is present when the Emperor brings Jecht to Chaos to have him made a Warrior of Chaos, and suspects the Emperor has ulterior motives. In a flashback shown in the Reports, he is present when the Warrior of Light first appears in World B, and battles Prishe to see which will take him to their respective god to have the Warrior imbued with their power.
Near the end of the game, Garland tells Golbez that he was once imprisoned within a time loop until The Great Will freed him to preside over the war of the gods and nurture Chaos to war with Cosmos. One of the Reports written from Garland's point of view tells of his summoning to World B, before the cycles of war began, when he reflects on the time loop. This serves as one of several examples of the events of Dissidia Final Fantasy intertwining with the events of Final Fantasy.
Garland's second alternate costume gives him the appearance of Yoshitaka Amano's original design of Garland, a dark-skinned demon with white hair.
