Who is better, Magil or Guile?

While they are both equally awesome, apparently there can only be one. Let the match begin!
(Take that, V!)

Magil of course.
Guile still seems to be a nobody to me.

I wasn't arguing the point, just that Magil is not in Chrono Cross.

Magil IS Magus where Guile only COULD HAVE BEEN Magus. Obviously Magil wins.

I prefer Guile tbh, he has the awesome sides from Magil, but he also has some nice traits like drinking and searching out enigma.

Definitely Magil--although I'll take the original over either, temper and all.

SCYTHE YES

As cool as Guile was, he really wasn't in comparison to Magus and Magil. Guile's level three attack was nifty in that it hit all the baddies at once, but... so does Razzly's. And even then, it's not all that accurate and scythes are more awesome. I personally loved that one battle where you were Lynx with a scythe. I wish you could've kept it afterwards...

Magil > Guile. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.

Magil uses a scythe? I thought he only used magic and karate.

I really should play to Radical Dreamers one of these days, Magil seems to be an interesting character if he can stand the comparison with Guile.

Not all that interesting. Actually, he doesn't say much during the entire game. Sometimes he doesn't even fight. How do we know he uses a scythe anyway? Let's not forget RD is another dimension.

Serge narrates the game, so nobody but him and Kid get a lot of lines, but I was pretty disappointed in Magil's character. He had his moments, like when he opened up Radius' cell, but hell, in the fight with Lynx he was immobilized 99% of the time.

And besides, that guy is too emo. I prefer a dude with a positive attitude.

Magil.
I'll give Guile that he looks like a pimp, but Magil looks like pimp/dracula. With a hint of Phantom Of The Opera. And whether it's karate or scythe they both dominate the staff anyday.

Guile may be upbeat, but it's only cause he's drunk.

I remember him having a scythe. In the Guile to Magil hack we had here a while ago (dunno what happened) one of the main things we were trying to do is give Guile a scythe. As well as change the textures, I guess, but...

... there doesn't appear to be anything in the script, but still. I'm pretty sure Magil had something like that.

I'm in that exact same position.

But that was a fan project, it was solely based on the fact Magus used to have a scythe. It still doesn't mean Magil ever had a scythe in RD. In fact nothing is ever mentioned about that whatsoever. You'd think if he had a scythe, there would be a line somewhere saying "Magil swings his scythe in fury!" or something like that. However, there is none.

I'm led to believe he doesn't have one, because it's never mentioned in RD. And I don't see how you can be "pretty sure" about it in that case.

Actually, RD is pretty specific about Magil not using any weapons:

"Even with no physical weapons of any kind, Magil looks as though he's having no trouble pulverizing the enemy with hand-to-hand tactics."

There's also an instance of him kicking a goblin in the face. But he mostly seems to stick to magic.
