On one hand I didn't like her for any reasons.

1. I did not see the charm others characters saw in her.
2. She dated Seifer. The biggest ass*** in the game.
3. Her weapon pissed me off. Like what the f***. Everyone else has weapons and martial arts skills and she's using a NERF frisbee!
4. I felt Quistis was superior and wanted the game to do a 180 and have her get with Squall who seemed to fit him more.

I feel once I play it again things may change as I was younger but who knows?

Anyone else have trouble warming to Rinoa?

I've never really liked her but I never compared her to Tifa. If anything she was more like a charmless, spoiled princess version of Aerith.

To me, the only thing I liked about Tifa was the slapping mini-game.

Otherwise, just another FF eye candy.

Rinoa's weapon, the chakram, was a rather popular weapon hundreds of years ago. Xena Warrior Princess even used one!!! Mind you that was 2000+ years ago.

I also never compares her to Tifa, but I did want Squall to end up with Quistis.

It just irked me she used a toy you can buy at Walmart to fight. She also brought a dog. I dunno. I could have settled for a bow and arrow or a crossbow, her weapon just comes across as lazy.

Hell we got one guy that uses an anchor!

Rinoa's problem is that she is extremely forgettable and probably the least popular female love interest in the 3D FF games. If not her, dull ass Princess Garnet from 9.

So you basically like Tifa for the same reasons that everyone likes Tifa lol.

Nomura does actually have a type. Tifa, Rinoa, and Yuna all do look similar. Even Stella looks like a blond Rinoa and Tifa has similar clothes to her in AC. As much as I love Garnet, she comes off as diet Tifa.
