Dissidia Final Fantasy (2008)Edit

Dissidia Zidane


Zidane is one of the warriors summoned by Cosmos to oppose Chaos, and stands as the hero representing Final Fantasy IX, opposing Kuja.

Traveling with Bartz, Zidane turns their quest for the Crystals into a treasure hunt, which ends abruptly when Bartz falls into a trap and is captured. Blaming himself, Zidane meets up with Squall and reunites with Bartz, only to be captured himself. These traps have been set in place by Kuja who desires to break Zidane's spirit with hopelessness and loneliness.

His alternate form is a palette swap based on his Yoshitaka Amano artwork.

Dissidia 012 Final FantasyEdit

Dissidia012 Zidane returns in the prequel to the first Dissidia along with the other characters from the game. Having been through several cycles of war and recovered all his memories, he is on good terms with Kuja, who seeks to betray Chaos and lead Zidane and his friends to Chaos's throne so they can defeat him together.

Kefka derails Kuja's scheme and summons manikins to attack Zidane, Bartz and Squall. To save face with the warriors of Chaos so as not to be persecuted for his betrayal, Kuja feigns having deceived the warriors of Cosmos, and reluctantly defeats the three but allow them to escape. Zidane is later incapacitated by Kain, who wishes to save him from defeat by the manikins.

Zidane's second alternate outfit is the armor he wore while disguised as a Knight of Pluto in Final Fantasy IX. As a bonus fourth outfit available for download, Zidane wears the hooded black cloak he wore to disguise himself in the ending of Final Fantasy IX.

Theatrhythm Final FantasyEdit


Theatrhythm Zidane
A quick-witted member of Tantalus, that famous group of part-time theatre players and full-time thieves, Zidane has never been able to say no to a pretty face. In the midst of a play, he kidnaps Princess Garnet of Alexandria and soon finds himself embroiled in political plays between great nations on her behalf. What began as a scripted tale on a small theater ship will evolve into a sprawling epic which will decide the survival of an entire planet.
—Online description

Zidane is a default playable character, and wears his main attire in Dissidia Final Fantasy.

Zidane is one of the fastest party members, and has a great number of useful abilities, being one of three characters to possess Hero's Rime, which increases all stats for the party. This comes at a high CP cost, however, and players must decide whether to use either his useful augment skills or item drop abilities.

His Limit, Grand Lethal, deals damage to boss-type enemies in direct proportion to Strength and Level.

—Character profile.

Zidane is a playable character who could be recruited during the Challenge Event A Place to Call Home as the First Time Reward for completing the event's stage Conde Petie Mountain Path on the Classic difficulty. He has also appeared in Someone to Protect, A Summoner Reborn, Angel of Death, and Show of Resolve as a supporting character.

Zidane is a master of both the Thief and Celerity skill groups, which places him ahead of Tidus in his ability to cripple an attacking enemy party.
