Kefka Palazzo is the main antagonist in Final Fantasy VI, released  first in April 1994 on the Super Nintendo.

Kefka appeared in around 5 other Final Fantasy spinoff games later, often as a boss or enemy as well but finally debuted as a playable character in the Final Fantasy Dissidia series in 2008.

Kefka is a through and through crazy evil video game villain. He is flamboyant and wears colorful clothes while he is one of the darkest antagonists in all video games ever. In his “God” form at the end of the game he shows his true colors.
