  3. So we all concluded it's "Tee-dus", right?

Square actually fked it up. They wanted the character to be named "Tee-dus" but they actually wrote it as "Tidus" so it was natural for english speakers to pronounce it "Tie-dus".

Then they corrected the mistake in KH1 (Wakka calls him "Tee-dus")

Until KH1 came out, I called him Tie-dus. After hearing it in KH1 I started using Tee-dus since that was the pronounciation the game gave him.

I pronounce it as 'Tee-dus' since I am an asian. People with 'Ti' in their names aren't pronounce as 'Tie' here.

I still call him Tide-us mostly because I associate him with water/tides. I thought that was what they were going for, honestly (with his initial water-like sword, and his emergence on Besaid island).

Look his real name is Jecht. A living reminder of who The Best is.

I've always just called him "whiny little b****"...


I never understood this. In my experience being whiny and depress seems to have been a hallmark of FF protagonist. Cloud had his "I'm just a puppet" phase, Squall had his Mini-Sephiroth phase, I cant think of one for Zidane (maybe he's the exception), and Vaan spent a good part of the beginning whining about his brother.

I don't have enough experience with 1-6 and 13+ to comment on those.

The point is all of them had a personal struggle that they eventually overcome through the story.

I've always called him TIE-dus. Interestingly, other FF games have gotten me to change my mind about character names, but I still refuse to call this guy TEE-dus. Cecil, for me, was SEE-sil until the DS remake. I've accepted Aerith as the correct spelling. And with Butz, I was more than happy to start calling him Bartz.

Let's also not forget that his reactions are pretty appropriate for his age (17) and during the circumstances. He also does a lot more than just "whine" about missing his home. I love all those moments where he literally goes "you can stuff your taboos!" and how he actually questions the religious teachings that most people in Spira follow blindly. And his relationship with Yuna is super cute.

I also feel like while his narration is great, the English voice acting in this game in general is just a product of its time. Playing it with Japanese voices and English subtitles really improves how some characters come across.

Teedus is only correct technically because of how the first voice actors decided to pronounce it. I'm allowed to disagree.

It's also correct because it's based on the Japanese pronunciation (tee-duh).

Again, I'm allowed to disagree. I don't care how the Japanese tried to pronounce his English name. In English, it only makes sense as Tidus. (Pronounce as spelled)
