Kefka appears as a boss and summon in the game. He utilizes Havoc Wing.
Working with Kuja, Exdeath, and the Cloud of Darkness, the group's goal is to destroy all existence. Kefka attempts to use Terra to further their plans by taking control of her, then appearing to taunt her with the brutality of her abilities and her past servitude to Chaos. He assists Kuja to capture Zidane, though accidentally catches Bartz instead. Kefka suggests to have Exdeath trick Bartz into giving the trap to Zidane.
His alternate form is a palette swap based on his Final Fantasy VI battle sprite.
Kefka reappears as a Warrior of Chaos in the prequel to Dissidia Final Fantasy alongside the other characters from the original. In this cycle he acts to sabotage the plans of his allies to betray Chaos, revealing Kuja's treachery to the other Warriors of Chaos and arranging for him to be defeated by Lightning, and manipulating Sephiroth to attack Tifa, prompting Cloud to reveal his true colors when he tries to protect her. He uses Terra as a weapon of war until Kuja weakens his spell, allowing Terra to resist him and flee Kefka's grasp with Vaan. Kefka serves as one of the participants in the final battle of Scenario 012, fighting Vaan.
Kefka's second alternate outfit gives him green robes with red and gold details, based on an alternate Yoshitaka Amano artwork and bearing a resemblance to his original Final Fantasy VI sprite.

- No. 209: "A mage from another world where magic and espers once lived. His mind was irreparably damaged by an infusion of artificial magic, but his emperor still places a great deal of trust in this madman. He is as fickle as a child, and just as quick to explode in anger, but these are tantrums with a death toll-- he even kills women and children indiscriminately. Even his fellow soldiers in the Gestahlian Army hate and fear Kefka for his madness and cruelty."
- No. 210: "A mage from another world where magic and espers once lived. A key player of the Gestahlian Empire, he stands in the way of the Returners time and again. His mind has been broken by the magic he was implanted with, leaving him emotionally stunted and devoid of morals. He murdered the entire population of Doma without hesitation, and shows no remorse for any of his heartless acts. He is obsessed with the espers and the great power that he could gain from them."
- No. 211: "A mage from another world where magic and espers once lived. He served the Gestahlian Empire, but his mind is twisted and warped.

He betrays his own emperor without a second thought, then lets the Warring Triad run wild. Amid the chaos, he is reborn as a god of destruction who wants nothing more than to see the world burn."
