Motomu Toriyama
"Fans and haters move aside, hold on to your wigs for Toriyama has arrived."

-Toriyama's words of wisdom.

Notice: This character is simply a joke and should not be taken seriously.

Motomu Toriyama is the infamous director of Final Fantasy XIII, and less known as the event planner of Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy VII. He created Final Fantasy XIII in the hopes of making something new and revolutionary, and to bring life to his waifu for laifu, Lightning.

In the Dissidian Wars, Toriyama fights for no specific side, he hacks the game from the interior to do whatever he wishes. However, he cannot accomplish his ultimate fantasies of transforming Dissidia into Gran Pulse because of copyright issues. He has no nemesis, 


Toriyama's default appearance is that of the above picture. Lightning also has her default appearance, but much more cartoony.

Toriyama's first alternate outfit, Presentation, is what he wore to E3 2013, Lightning gains her secondary outfit of white hair.

Toriyama's secondary alternate outfit, I<3Lightning, depicts him in Hope's attire in Final Fantasy XIII, creepy, right. Lightning gains her Guardian Corps alternate outfit.

Toriyama's Manikin, Fleeting Director, is pink.


In battle, Toriyama is described as the Ultoriyama, he uses attacks that reshape the Final Fantasy timeline and uses his Limited Edition Lightning Returns Lightning figurine to do battle for him.

Toriyama can control the Lightning Figurine by inputting commands into an ATB bar above his portrait, Lightning will continue with these attacks while Toriyama does something else, leading into powerful combos.
