Oh EM GEE. (Final Fantasy X EASTER EGG!)

So I decided to replay the last battle of FFX for fanfiction inspiration purposes. I pulled out an old saved file where I'd maxed out the sphere grid.

It occurred to me that I'd never filled out my FFX Combat Quotes page with the "Provoke" and "Threaten" quotes for every character.

Tidus and Auron, as you've probably seen, each have a couple different taunts when you use those abilities. The other characters don't say anything when they "Provoke," but they have special animations.

Sooo. YOUR ASSIGNMENT, oh FFX geeks:

1. Go find your last save file of FFX.
2. Open the sphere grid.
3. Find that Special Sphere you were saving for a rainy day.
4. Activate someone's "Provoke" node.
5. Pick a fight with a monster and Provoke it.
6. Rinse, repeat.

The "Threaten" quotes are not so exciting, but some of the "Provoke" moves are quite amusing.

Rikku "provokes" by slapping her butt and sticking her tongue out (sort of; she puts her hands up to her ears and waggles them). Kimahri does a vaguely obscene gesture with his tail. Wakka's boring, thumping his chest in a macho manner. Auron does the Seifer/Balthier "you wannna a piece of me?" hand-gesture. Tidus has a couple different taunts. Yuna seems to call out something (no quote, Square? Lazy lazy) and waves cutely (sigh). And Lulu?

Did she just make a pass at me that Varuna demon-thingie? YES SHE DID. It's the LeBlanc shimmy and an air-kiss, only less vampy and more elegant.

Alas, most of the "Threaten" quotes are boring. They all say some variant of "Don't move!" or "Stop!" However, Lulu's growled "You move, you die" is satisfying.

Now I wish someone would nab the "Provoke" animations for Lulu, Kimahri, Auron and Rikku and put them up on YouTube. SNERK.

I've wondered about Keyakku. He could be a game inconsistency -- there are a very few, especially in the hidden cutscenes. However, when Keyakku dies, Rikku cries over him, but she doesn't actually identify him. Cid comes over and hold him for a moment, but he doesn't say anything about Keyakku either. So Keyakku could be a cousin, Cid's younger brother, or just a family friend.

*digs out script*

Guadosalam optional Rikku cutscene:

Rikku: You an only child?
Tidus: Yeah.
Rikku: I got an older brother, myself.
Tidus: Huh.
Rikku: I wish I had some younger brothers and sisters, though...
Tidus: So ask your parents.
Rikku: Mom died... A machina went on a rampage...
Tidus: I'm sorry.
Rikku: When I get married, I'm gonna have lots of kids! That way they'll all have brothers and sisters!
Arriving at Al Bhed home:

[Rikku runs to the blond spiked-hair guy, who's just collapsed]
Rikku: Keyakku! Who? Who's attacking us?
Keyakku: Yevon... Guado... (Dies)
Rikku: Keyakku? Keyakku!
Lulu: A war? Between Yevon and the Al Bhed?
Cid: (Arriving) That is wrong! Guado go for the summoner.
Rikku: Father...
[Cid strides over, kneels, embraces Keyakku, then clears throat and stands.]
Cid: You Rikku's friends? Well, just don't stand there, come on! Let's go kick those Guado out of our Home!
[Rikku hangs back, looking down]
Tidus: Who...?
Rikku: Cid. Leader of the Al Bhed... He's my dad.
Tidus: Let's go.
Rikku: Yeah. We have to save Yunie

Edit: But wait, you're spelling Keyakku's name Keikku, which looks like a Japanese spelling. Did the English dub localization team leave out some tidbit about him?
