Ultimecia Accent Fix

Hack of Final Fantasy VIII

Description:

This patch fixes Ultimecia’s incongruous accented text.

In the English version of Final Fantasy VIII, Ultimecia emphasizes the letter ‘c’, pronouncing it as a harder sound than normal (transcribed as ‘k’s in the text). However, during and after she evolves into her final form, she loses this emphasis. She also doesn’t speak this way in the Dissidia Final Fantasy series, or while possessing Edea. Ultimecia has no accent in Japanese, and arrogantly uses omae to refer to the party, this is usually associated with male speech. Overall, she uses few feminine speech markers, which makes her sound rather like a male antagonist.
