Zell and ADHD[edit]

I removed this statement—"It is also implied that Zell suffers from heavy ADHD"—from Zell's section. It's not a good idea to try to pathologize the behaviors of video game characters. Is Squall just aloof, or suffering from type A Unipolar Depression? "Aloof" is a better description for a few reasons. Likewise, it would be better to say Zell is "hyper-active" and maybe "unfocused" or "easily distracted." It is more descriptive than saying he has "heavy" ADHD (heavy?) because it doesn't require knowledge of the subject. For bonus points, who here knows why the use of the word "implied" in this example is also bad writing/misinformation? JRNorbergé (talk) 14:01, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

Proposed merge with Rinoa Heartilly[edit]

As discussed at Talk:Rinoa Heartilly, I started to attempt this merge myself, but since this character list is an FA, it might be better for someone more familiar with the series to do it. I can certainly help with paring down any section as needed, but the core idea (as stated above on this talk page in 2009) is that Rinoa is not the subject of independent coverage—she's either in lists or covered within a set/cast of characters, so she should be covered as one within a character list. czar 20:18, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

  • Merge - Her notability is more than covered by the featured article on the Characters of Final Fantasy VIII, and any relevant points not merged can be added with minimal expansion of the parent article. Judgesurreal777 (talk) 21:11, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

As per this and the other discussion, merged it myself. --PresN 16:30, 16 February 2016 (UTC)
