Selphie Tilmitt is one of the “side” protagonists in Final Fantasy VIII first released in 1999 on the Sony Playstation.

She joins the party around Squall as a 17-year-old SeeD member and takes the role of the cute and optimistic young girl. In the game she has a cool website actually where the player can read a bit about himself and his social decisions relating to the other party members. Her weapon is a nunchaku in different forms and her limit break “Slots” allows her to cast very random spells which are often resulting in surprising effects.

Selphie is a pretty cool character, can be annoying too sometimes but all in all i would love to see her back with a bigger role than in the Kingdom Hearts games in which she plays a minor role and is appears in a much younger version.

I was surprised that there are almost no drawn fan arts of her while there are relative many great looking cosplays as Selphie. Looking forward to see her being a part of our current Final Fantasy art collaboration “Those Who Fight Further”
