For detailed information about this series, see: Final Fantasy Wiki

Final Fantasy is a media franchise created by Square Enix (formerly Square), centering on a series of fantasy and science fantasy role-playing video games, but also including every other kind of media. It's considered one of the most succesful, if not the most successful RPG video game series of all time.

Its games are characterized by the same basic game mechanics, plot themes, character names, but each entry in the main series is considered a story on its own, taking place in a separate continuity, or a separate world.

Sub-series

Almost every game in the series takes place in a different world, thus leading many to consider each one of them a sub-series on its own, even if it has only one entry, because connections with other games would still be considered crossovers.

Notable sub-series, apart from the main numbered games, are:

  • Final Fantasy Legend: a series of three Final Fantasy games for the Game Boy, originally part of the SaGa series.
  • Final Fantasy Gaiden: a series of secondary Final Fantasy games, only composite of Final Fantasy Adventure (Known in Japan as Seiken Densetsu: Final Fantasy Gaiden) and Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light (Known in Japan as Hikari no 4 Senshi: Final Fantasy Gaiden).
  • Final Fantasy Tactics: a series of tactical RPG games.
  • Final Fantasy Unlimited: an anime series that also spawned novels and video games.
  • Final Fantasy Chrystal Chronicles: a series of action-RPGs released exclusively for Nintendo consoles.
  • Dissidia Final Fantasy: a series of fighting-RPGs that serves as a crossover between all main Final Fantasy games.

While we don't need specific articles for each sub-series, for the references and crossovers between them see Final Fantasy sub-series links.
