Top 10 Final Fantasy Games Japan

Yahoo! Japan released a poll ranking every mainline Final Fantasy game, revealing the top 10 games within the franchise. The final results tallied a total of 28,000 votes. However, online mainline Final Fantasy games are included within the ranking. This means that spin-off titles or sequels, like Final Fantasy X-2 or Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, are not part of the list. Additionally, this list only applies to Japan. [Thanks, Yahoo! Japan and aitaikimochi!]

The top 10 Final Fantasy games within Japan are:

  1. Final Fantasy VII
  2. Final Fantasy VI
  3. Final Fantasy X
  4. Final Fantasy V
  5. Final Fantasy IV
  6. Final Fantasy XIV
  7. Final Fantasy IX
  8. Final Fantasy VIII
  9. Final Fantasy XI
  10. Final Fantasy III

Further down the list include the first Final Fantasy title, Final Fantasy XV, Final Fantasy XII, Final Fantasy XIII, and Final Fantasy II in that order.

In February 2020, NHK held a massive poll which ranked not only the popularity of Final Fantasy titles, but also characters within the franchise. This included ranking for mainline games and spin-off titles. Final Fantasy X was revealed to be the most popular Final Fantasy title as of 2020, with Final Fantasy VII sitting behind it. Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII was the most popular character. Yuna from Final Fantasy X came in second place.
