Dissidia Final FantasyEdit

Dissidia

Dissidia Golbez

Golbez appears as a Warrior of Chaos and stands as the antagonist representing Final Fantasy IV, opposing Cecil Harvey.

Possessing motivations and desires more complex than most of the other antagonists, Golbez helps the heroes in their struggles in his secretive fashion while pretending to follow the plan set down by the Emperor. In his heart, Golbez is on the side of light, and works to assist the heroes in the hopes they break the cycle of war.

His alternate outfit is a palette swap based on his Final Fantasy IV battle sprites and DS render, giving him black armor and a red lining on his cape.

Dissidia 012 Final FantasyEdit

Dissidia012 Golbez reappears as a Warrior of Chaos in the prequel to Dissidia Final Fantasy alongside all the other characters from the original. He plays a brief but important role in the main story, enlightening Kain to the nature of the cycle of war, information which motivates Kain to strike down his allies so they will survive to the next cycle instead of being killed permanently by the manikins. He speaks to Cosmos at the beginning of the thirteenth cycle before the war begins, rekindling her memories of the previous cycle when she laid the foundation for her plan to manifest Crystals for her warriors.

Golbez's second alternate outfit is his appearance in The After Years as the Man in Black, removing his armor and leaving him clad in a black kilt and cloak.

Story
3★ - No. 0180: "A mage from a different world who tried to destroy a certain blue planet with two moons. He controls the armies of Baron from the shadows in order to seize the Crystals that lie in each land, and drives Baron to commit terrible atrocities. Beneath him serve the four Archfiends: Scarmiglione of earth, Cagnazzo of water, Barbariccia of wind, and Rubicante of fire. But his own power is also great, and he uses many cruel tactics in his various confrontations with Cecil, including controlling Cecil's best friend, Kain, with the darkness that lay hidden in the dragoon's heart."
4★ - No. 0181: "A mage from a different world who tried to destroy a certain blue planet with two moons. This mysterious man, concealed in black armor, stands opposed to Cecil and his allies in their battle over the Crystals' fate. He commands the Archfiends, and uses underhanded methods to try to throw Cecil, and the world, into confusion, including controlling Kain and having him kidnap Cecil's beloved Rosa. In truth, he is a son of the Lunarian Kluya - as well as Cecil's elder brother. Twister by the dark will of Zemus, who is behind all of the troubles befalling the Blue Planet, he does whatever he must to fulfill Zemus's cruel wishes."
5★ - No. 0182: "A mage from a different world who tried to destroy a certain blue planet with two moons. He is in fact Cecil's elder brother, and was being controlled by an evil Lunarian named Zemus, who directed him to destroy the crystals. After a long struggle, Golbez finally regained control of his mind and chose to join his brother in the fight against Zemus. With the aide of their uncle, Fusoya, he defeats their enemy--only to be faced with Zeromus, an evil fouler monster birthed from Zemus' remains. Struck down by Zeromus's darkness, Golbez must entrust the final battle to his brother, Cecil."

Final Fantasy Trading Card GameEdit

TCG Golbez is featured on many cards. Two depict his appearance as the Man in Black from Final Fantasy IV: The After Years and go by this name, and are of the Shine and Ice element. The others feature his 3D remake render, Dissidia Final Fantasy art, and SD artwork appearances, are of the Dark element. The Lightning element cards feature another Amano art and Golbez's render in Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy. His alternate outfit from Dissidia as the Man in Black is also depicted in a water-elemental card.

Referring to his control over the Archfiends, Golbez's Dissidia card has the effect that when moved to the Break Zone, the player can search their four cards of different elements and a cost of 2, and play them to the field for no cost, while his 3D render card lowers the cost to play it by 2 for each of the Archfiends the player controls, and allows the player to move an Archfiend they control to the Break Zone to Break a Forward of their choosing. His Amano art card references his control of Kain, allowing the player to select a Forward on the field and take control of it after Golbez attacks, if they control a Dark character. His Man in Black cards allude to his hidden identity, preventing them from being played while a Golbez card is in play, and the two each have an ability that mirror Golbez's Pressure and Taunt abilities, the former preventing a Forward from attacking and the latter redirecting damage to the player's Forwards to Golbez instead.

Golbez appears on Triple Triad cards in the version available via Final Fantasy Portal App.
