In Final Fantasy V the villain Exdeath, who is made out of trees, has a tower/home that is made out of flesh. This is because humans, who are made out of flesh, have houses that are made out of trees.

Pretty neat IMO

I love this detail. It's really ironic, even if it's not made of iron.

It sounds like a shitpost but it's actually a thematic part of his character.

I've played this game multiple times over the years. Somehow every playthrough I'm like wait the bad guy is a fucking tree?

I don't know why I can't retain this info. It's like I'm trying to reject it subconsciously.

He has a long nose like Pinocchio

I can never forget because I can never forget the scene where he turns himself into a splinter that gets stuck in Krile’s hand or whatever so he can surprise attack the party and Mr. Turtle. He’s called Splinter Exdeath. Funniest shit I ever saw.

Haahh Don't worry this happens to me every time, and V is probably my favorite FF.

Clearly you never saw Evil Dead 🙂

I always thought it was pretty cool! A tree that was filled with the souls of evil mages to the point where it became the most evil mage itself.

I reject your treemanity, exdeath!

Seems like the fact that he's a tree is completely pointless, because he has a form of an armored human most of the time and he's supposed to be actually animated by evil souls of the dead.

In my defense, last time I built my house out of flesh and bones, people freaked the fuck out and now I’m banned from living in that state again.

Let me guess. Nebraska?

Exdeath also burned down the Great Forest of Moore which is basically where he came from.

He may be an underdeveloped villain to an extent, but man his kill count of both humans & trees is through the roof.

They should have listened to the Lorax while they had the chance.

Nobody harms a single tree

When the Lorax has an RPG

This reads like “shitty movie details” but it’s actually pretty funny and true.

Great post. That place was absolutely horrifying with its breathing walls and meat shit everywhere. If there are ever fully sentient trees that can communicate with us I hope they don’t have the same repulsion about our living environments, but they probably wood.

So like, does that mean he had to do all the construction and maintenance himself? Or is there a flesh roof guy he can call when he gets a leak?

So exdeath represents Earth and how Earth hates humans, and is trying to kill us all. Therefor the game is promoting we kill Earth.

Lines up with the themes earlier in the game of societies overusing and depleting the crystals.

I dont care what anyone says, Neo Ex Death is one of the coolest looking monsters in FF. He gained Bonus points for how rad his entrance was in FF14

ID: hmp7hva

Honestly Neo's XIV appearance is what made me get and play FFV in the first place. One of the hardest FF endbosses from my experience too.

How high were you when you thought about this? :3

Doing mealprep and listening to the Wii Chocobo's Dungeon ost entirely sober, I promise.

While Exdeath could use a bit of work to become better... Dude is metal af and no one can deny that.

ID: hmp5a7c

Is there a cooler suit of armor and sword than his? It looks straight out of dark souls.

Wait his lair is made out of flesh?!?

ID: hmopngi

If you mean his tower in Galuf's World, yes.

living corpses to be precise (just watch the first minute):

Exdeath is PETA confirmed

I just played 5 and totally missed this. unlocking dual wield for everyone was too distracting I guess.

Samey. To my defence, I was younger and my English wasn't the best at that time, but still, I can't believe I'm learning that today when FF5 is still one of my favorites!

Out of line, but right.

that’s some dedication.

every time i try to make my own habitat out of human flesh i just end up eating all the resources.

19 : Anonymous2021/11/30 13:56 ID: hmnuqk2

So if I sat on Exdeaths shoulder could I consider him a tree house? Or one of the Flintstones style cars?

Dio like, how many slices of breads have you eaten in your life? ExDeath like, how many people have you witnessed in your life?

This is one of my favourite shower thoughts now.

I've never made that connection... But it makes so much sense now! (even if not intended) o_o

Not a great sight first time seeing it.

Lmao i take what you took

I never saw it that way but that's a good observation.

Reminds me of that Rick and Morty episode where some guy orders pizza and we then see alternative versions of it.

I love exdeath and I love that he’s just a tree lol

And still it's hard not to laugh when you see his original form 🙂

31 : Anonymous2021/11/30 14:20 ID: hmnxoi6

I mean, you aren't necessarily wrong.

It is sort of an exaggeration though.

32 : Anonymous2021/11/30 17:08 ID: hmolyez

You can't see it right now but the horrified expression I'm making at this revelation has scared away the entire family and caused them to wall off my bedroom as the curse of my horror at realizing this is now bleeding into reality and will soon threaten to consume all of creation if left unchecked.

this is your fault OP.

he is only a tree at the end. Before that he is a dark wizard or something.
