Final Fantasy 6's villain. More insane than FF7's villain, Sephiroth
He hates hates hates hates hates hates hates hates HATES you.
The villain of Final Fantasy 6. Kefka has a vast array of one-liners that other villains would kill for, dresses like a clown, and is the epitemy of insanity. Appearing just like a loony, crazy general in the beginning, Kefka's insanity is fully grasped as he kills off his emperor and literally rearranges the shape of the planet... At the end Wielding a cruel, twisted weapon called the Light of Judgement, unleashing dragons, demons and the ATMA weapon upon the world, plunging the world into ruin, seated on the throne of the world in a tower made of Earth and garbage, killing millions of people, and not giving A DAMN about it. Kefka is the only villain whose plan actually succeeds and who gains the power of the Gods. The best villain of all time...
