Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call Edit

TFFCC

The last summoner of Mist, the one place on Earth closest to the Eidolons. Despite her sorrowful past, she lives on in courage and fights alongside Cecil, the dark knight who brought about her mother's death...
—CollectaCard

Rydia returns as an unlockable character, and is now obtained by collecting Peach Crystal Shards. Despite still appearing as a child, Rydia's size has not been adjusted, and she stands at the same level as almost all other characters, unlike Shantotto.

Rydia remains a strong mage with a plethora of spells at her disposal, and although she loses several support skills, she also gains more magic to utilise and the ability to boost her Luck, making her useful for obtaining treasures on both field and battle.

Rydia is an exclusive character only available from the Premium Character Shop as a random downloadable content, she summons the Mist Dragon during battle.

Final Fantasy Record Keeper Edit

FFRK

FFRK Child Rydia Sprite
A girl from Mist, the village of the summoners, Rydia loses her mother when King Baron sets fire to her hometown. Though at first she mistrusts Cecil for his role in causing the disaster, she eventually warms to him.
—Character profile.

Rydia joins the player party as a child. A standard character, Rydia is recruited as the First Time Reward for completing the Record of Fabul in the Realm of Final Fantasy IV on the Classic difficulty track. She has also appeared in The Burning Blade and Twin Stars of Mysidia, where in both events she is also easier to acquire. She can grow into her adult self with the Chosen of Feymarch Wardrobe Record, obtained during A Summoner Grown.

Assessment

Rydia is a Summoner, whose combat role is Offensive Magic.

Rydia is the representative Black Mage and Summoner from her series, and as such has high magical stats throughout her progression, though not quite as high as a dedicated Black Mage like Vivi. Yet her Memory Crystal is located in his realm and is one of the more difficult items to obtain. Still, given her early acquirement, she may serve any party well for a long time.
