‘And I hope when I get old I don’t sit around thinking about it, but I probably will. Yeah just sitting back trying to a little of the glory of. Well but time slips away and leaves you with nothing mister but boring stories of Glory Days’
Final Fantasy IV on the Nintendo DS uses a simple but intelligent method of making boss battles feel more dynamic in comparison to basic random encounters: a slight alteration of the camera angle. In addition to showing the boss in full glory, it also makes the player feel as if they are facing a threat greater than themselves, which isn’t as evident when they are presented as equal to their opponents in random encounters.
Extroverted Thinking (Te): Glory is the boss. She’s a hell god from a demon dimension, and everyone should obey her because she’s got the plan. Glory is very attached to her plan - she needs the key, and she will do whatever she needs to do and utilize everything she needs to do it. She sees facts for facts; she’s the most powerful person in a room, and thus everyone should get down on their knees and worship her. When people aren’t being efficient or have made a foolish decision, Glory punishes them. Why not? They made a mistake, that’s the only way they’ll learn. She measures everything objectively; the human race is worthless in her eyes because they don’t have the kind of power she does. She also ran a hell-dimension for years; she clearly knows how to manage other people. She’s also brutally honest in her critiques and expressing her opinions, and holds no bones about who and what she is; as Dawn puts it in The Weight of the World “At least you’re honest.”
Introverted Intuition (Ni): She’s focused on her plan and 100% committed to her goal: “All I want is the key.” If that pesky Ben she shares her body with would stop getting in the way, Glory would probably have accomplished her goal much faster, because she’s good at planning. She doesn’t bother with things she foresees will be a problem for her - if her intuition tells her Buffy won’t be a problem, she’s not going to bother with eliminating her or concentrating on her. She sees only the end goal - I get back to my home dimension - and not the consequences, like causing all the universes to bleed into e ache other and effectively ending the world. She grasps symbolic explanations very easily “Is this what poets go on about? This?” She intuits the best way to control Ben in The Weight of the World, guessing his long-term wishes could be used to her advantage.
Extroverted Sensing (Se): Surrounded by beautiful environs, constantly dressed to the nines, treating herself to bubble baths, mimosa and chocolates…Glory has an appreciation for the physical pleasures of life. This appreciation causes problems when she gets too concerned with appearances - when the heel of her shoe breaks during her first battle with Buffy, she’s more focused on her pretty shoe breaking than on the fact that stomping on the floor brings the building down on her. Glory is very physically capable and has no problem with taking action…as long as it feeds into her long-term goals.
Introverted Feeling (Fi): Glory cares only about herself and her own emotions. Her Fi is very selfish and negative; she can’t understand or comprehend the needs of others. She honestly hates feelings, calling human emotion useless. When she starts feeling Ben’s emotions bleeding into her own, she expresses it in that perfect awkward Inferior Fi way - trying and failing to comfort Dawn, who she suddenly feels for. Ultimately Glory is destroyed by her own lack of empathy. She can’t comprehend the feelings or needs of other people and as a result she can’t tell the difference between the Buffy-Bot and Buffy, leading to the deception that lets Buffy destroy her.
Note: Glory’s functions are actually the exact opposite of Dawn’s (Fi-Se-Ni-Te), and in a slightly different order from, but still the same as, Buffy’s (Se-Fi-Te-Ni). Strange that.
BE STILL MY BEATING HEART LOOK AT THEM I LOVE THEM LOOK AT THEIR FACES!
Huh looks like you can talk to/negotiate with bosses. I was wondering about that. So does this mean you can summon the bosses later as Personas? Or is this how it’s determined on stealing the boss’s heart (and the way you do it involves getting a glory or ruin ending?)
I thought there was more to the un-hodding scene. Like there is a small frame where she’s kind of just staring back. flnsa;nf;alfkfas LOOK AT HER FACE! He’s like “She’s beautiful!” and she’s like “He’s beautiful!” XD lkfsdnaknsal; Anne ;w;
