"And the leader of SeeD is you, Squall..." "Squall's sword will pierce my heart....." "I guess it's ok if it's you, Squall. She wears the ballroom outfit again at the Garden Festival event in Fishermans Horizon. Squall shy and reserved about his feelings and attraction to her, yet also annoyed at first that she was into seifer. You've missed out on so much. I appreciate you clarifying these points, a lot of people turned their brain off partway through FFVIII and gave up on understanding the plot and characters. While I do believe the relationship stems from squall just feeling open for the first time and Rinoa just feeling vulnerable after the whole Seifer situation I think that time and time again they proved they cared a lot about each other especially in disc 3 with the space scene and saving Rinoa from being locked up. I always thought Squall was a boring plank of wood and Rinoa irritated me so I couldn't care less for any sort of romance between them. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. He sees Rinoa above, reaching to him as he falls. It would become very obvious that she's interested in him. Being what he is to Rinoa while still having to manage Garden is overwhelming for Squall, and frustrating for Rinoa, who feels caught in-between his love for her and loyalty/attachment to the institution that raised him. Rinoa has a warm, outgoing and very friendly personality, while Squall is cold and antisocial but in the end they fall in love to each other. Rinoa is turning to Squall, who has just been impaled. Zell then says he needs to see Squall's in order to do it, expecting Rinoa to get it. Of course, he can’t relate too well with people. He then plummets off a ledge as Rinoa helplessly watches. The ballroom dress is her alternate costume in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT.Her signature outfi… ", "I couldn't stand a day without a past or future. When Rinoa was put under a spell by a witch and fell into a coma, it fell upon Squall to rescue her, and it was here that Squall and Rinoa both realize their real feelings for each other. Never included her in anything. Focus on Rinoa now. In fact, it's when Rinoa goes into her coma at the end of disk 2/ start of disk 3 that Squall … Short but sweet :) (p.s. Yes, what does it all mean? Currently playing: Parasite Eve (PSN), 3rd Birthday, Dissidia Duodecim, Legend of Mana (PSN). Rinoa basically makes it a project to get Squall to come out of his shell and she becomes attracted in the process. Pretty much this. There, they meet up with the sorceress and fight her; however, the end of the battle is tragic as Rinoa falls into a coma for an unknown reason. If they had gotten together, Rinoa and Squall would be brother and sister. In the end, she probably ended up on another world like you said. Then again the game completely lost me with the whole orphanage bit. Squall: I'm not your mom. Besides, as noted, the sibling or like siblings theme was stronger in this game than almost any other FF game since 5/6 were kids together (similar to FFIII where the 4 … Persons like Squall might need to actually hear what others think of them in order to develop, though; if the people in FF8 were to just act generally kind to Squall without saying anything about his problems, he might not have got the chance to change. Squall is her Knight. Here's how. Squall starts to leave out of frustration but dragged back by Rinoa. Looky here! Meanwhile, Julia married General Caraway and they had a daughter, Rinoa, but Julia died when Rinoa was a little girl. I prefer rosa and Cecil, dagger and zidane or tidus and tuna. Him coming round to her could have been more deftly handled. It is in her comatose state, that Squall brings her first to Esthar, and then to space to try and save her. Just finished FF8 and I think I figured out something. That game is so good. Rinoa and Squall are kissing and it seems the game will end blissfully. I never liked Rinoa and found the whole romance focus weak of the game. Eventually, together, they get it. You could then max Irvine and Selphie together (howcuteOTPalmostcanonwhydidn'theymakeitofficialsquarepls). Some people are trying to tell me that when Squall takes Rinoa's hand and pulls her closer to himself and their faces get close... that they aren't kissing. I think it’s important to note that at this point in the game, at the end of disc one, Squall is aware of Rinoa’s relationship with Seifer and does not seem threatened by it. We can see that Squall’s having a lot of fun. Then the near death in space when she regains herself, and subsequent awkwardness by squall *still* after he saves her. Rinoa has flash backs of their time together and tries to live withou... Read FIRST please!! Squall is who VIII works to humanize before asking you to admire at the end. What you seem to be mistaking is that Squall doesn't start caring for Rinoa in space, he actually cares for her (and all of his other teammates) long before then. Rinoa constantly poking at Squall's shell until he finally opens up and then at the end when he thinks everyone's left him and then. Well, if you remember, Cid's the one that took the kids away. Suggesting a way for Squall to revive Rinoa. I don't know why Squall is a ghost and Irvine isn't. Rinoa "That's not what I meant." The relationship is completely subtle and vague UNTIL the Ragnarok which is late Disc 3 and totally random, and that's if you can really find them saying nice words or caring about one another. Rinoa, Selphie, Squall, Zell, and Irvine spend Christmas together. When the main protagonist Squall Leonhart and his party of SeeD help the resistance movement, Rinoa decides to stay with them and ends up falling in love with Squall. They're also really young, but in a way the game always seems cognisant of. Do you name Squall, Rinoa, or Guardian Forces something stupid? "Those were your words, Rinoa." Rinoa constantly poking at Squall's shell until he finally opens up and then at the end when he thinks everyone's left him and then. "They're cute and popular, so they've gotta fuck" is basically the law of the land. Squall and Rinoa worked together on a mission and got to know each other. As much as Squall does for Rinoa, she does for him. Not great though. Tidus and Yuna to me are top tier video game romance but SquallxRinoa and ZidanexGarnet where damn amazing too. Rinoa was using Squall as support due to Seifer and Squall was using Rinoa as support due to all the fucking stress going on in his life. Walking up to Rinoa, he handed her a ticket and said, "One for you." Squall is sent to his past where he sees Edea, the first sorceress you confront at the end of disk one. Squall Leonhart (Japanese: スコール・レオンハート, Hepburn: Sukōru Reonhāto) is a fictional character and the main protagonist of Final Fantasy VIII, a role-playing video game that was produced by Square (now Square Enix).In Final Fantasy VIII, Squall is a 17-year-old student at Balamb Garden, a prestigious military academy for elite mercenaries (known as "SeeDs"). Squall: It makes perfect sense that Squall would find Rinoa completely infuriating. After the fight, when Edea seems defeated, she conjures an enormous ice shard and propels it through Squall’s chest. Rinoa Heartilly (Japanese: リノア・ハーティリー, Hepburn: Rinoa Hātirī) is the co-protagonist of Square's (now Square Enix) 1999 role-playing video game Final Fantasy VIII.She is a teenaged member of a resistance faction known as the Forest Owls.
