I’ll never forget my first time bumping into that crazy kid. I was out in the Junon area, getting my butt kicked against Formulae and Capparwires, because I was 11 years old and I had no idea what I was doing. The next thing I knew, a ninja with a shuriken showed up, dumbfounded me, and ran off because I dared ask her name. To my shame, it wasn’t until much further into the game that I actually recruited Yuffie Kisaragi. But despite her thievery and wishy-washy personality, I found her hilarious from the get-go, and she’s been among my favorite spunky Final Fantasy characters ever since.
