In popular cultureEdit

8-Bit TheaterEdit

In the webcomic parodying the original Final Fantasy, Sarah is so used to being kidnapped that she's become accustomed to it. She decides to help Garland learn to become a villain because of his incompetence, and after being rescued seizes control of Cornelia from her father through trickery. Her evil appearance is based on Princess Sara Altney while her standard appearance is a recolor of Aria Benett's sprite.


Sera is Latin for "heavenly" or "winged angel", and also a variant of the name Sarah, (שָׂרָה in Hebrew) the Hebrew name for "princess", or a woman of high rank.


  • The name Sarah (セラ, Sera?) appears within a list of unused playable character data within Final Fantasy VI game's data. It is unknown if it would have been the name of a princess or not.
  • Despite not being a princess, Serah Farron from the Lightning Saga uses an alternative form of the name Sarah. Her Japanese name Sera (セラ?) spelled the same way as the dummied Sara from Final Fantasy VI. Serah's role in Final Fantasy XIII and Lightning Returns is also similar to the Princess Sarah in early games, a non-playable character that needs to be saved/rescued by the party.
  • The name of Fina from Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is a short form of "Serafina".
  • Sarah Carson (サラ・カーソン, Sara Kāson?) is a main character in Romancing SaGa 3 who specializes in archery and magic. She does not have a princess role, but she is one of the two destined children.
