Tidus appears as a legendary (5-stars) Triple Triad card.
|Totaltotal stats of the card||27|
Tidus appeared in the original free-to-play version. He was a water-elemental summon and a character costume for players to obtain.
Tidus could only be obtained as a summon through participating in the pre-registration campaign for the game's relaunch as Final Fantasy Legends II or could be obtained by players that originally played the game under the Final Fantasy Legends: Toki no Suisho title. His signet artwork reused his promotional artwork from Final Fantasy X.
Tidus's special attack was Spring of Speed, which increased the speed of all party members for five turns and hastens their next turn. Summoning Tidus required two summon gauges. In addition, Tidus taught the Spiral Cut ability, which appeared as one of his Swordplay Overdrives and even shared the same animation. The Tidus signet was an SS+ rank summon and had a summon cost of 16 to equip to a character.
Tidus allowed the wielder to use the following abilities:
- Spiral Cut I
- Spiral Cut II
- Spiral Cut III
- Spiral Cut IV
Similar to other series cameo characters, the Tidus summon and costume were removed from the premium release of Final Fantasy Dimensions II.
Dissidia Final Fantasy (2008) Edit
Though seen as cheerful and energetic by his companions, Tidus's weak point is Jecht, a warrior of Chaos, to the point the very mention of his name angers him. Though he confuses his friends in doing so, Tidus claims to hate Jecht and feels no sympathy for him in spite of their relationship, but when Tidus is given the chance to battle his father he hesitates and questions his motivations. Jecht, likewise, defies orders from the Emperor about Tidus, and father and son meet to do battle on their own terms.
Tidus's alternate outfit is a slight remodel, removing most of the tears and frays from his uniform along with removing the high collar from his shirt and restoring the mesh-basket armguard, based on his Final Fantasy X appearance.
Tidus returns summoned for the first time to the war as a Warrior of Chaos. Bearing no memories of his home except for his hatred for Jecht, Tidus wishes to find and defeat him. Yuna tries to make him remember her and that he and his father resolved their differences, but the Emperor attacks her. Tidus intercepts the attack to protect Yuna, and while Yuna fights the Emperor, Jecht, a warrior of Cosmos in this cycle, saves Tidus's life by transferring his power to him, making Tidus into a Warrior of Cosmos and leaving Jecht an empty shell to eventually become a Warrior of Chaos.
Tidus's alternate outfit is redesigned to fully resemble his original Final Fantasy X appearance, while his third outfit leaves him shirtless as in Yoshitaka Amano's concept art of him.
Tidus is a playable character for the Arcade system, as a representative of Final Fantasy X. He is classed as a Speed-type character.

Tidus appears as a playable character.

He has also appeared in Defying Fate, Destiny's Path, This is Our Story and A Dream for Spira.
Tidus is a Guardian, whose combat role is Physical Speed.
Tidus is a warrior with good all-around physical stats and high Speed. His skills are aimed at striking quickly or for high damage. Tidus is one of the best characters, simply because he has access to both Rank 5 Combat and Celerity, letting him pull of the devastating Powerchain-Full Charge combo, which rivals early Super Soul Breaks and Burst Soul Breaks in terms of damage per second. With a range of thrown weapons, he can easily switch from close combat to attacking at a distance as needed. However, Tidus has an affinity for water-elemental skills that have limited usefulness throughout the game.
