Sabin is hands down my favorite Final Fantasy character ever. Not because he has some awesome back story or looks cool, but because when you equip him the genji gloves, offering, two tigers claws and level him up correctly he can do ( 9,999 x 8 ) damage per round. Loved when I figured that out as a kid.
What can I say, I prefer DPSers. How else do you explain that Wakka is my second favorite Final Fantasy character?
