Final Fantasy XII was a video game that came out in 2006. While the game itself was well received, what most people remember was the character Vaan’s idiotic “I’m Captain Basch” segment. As this happens near the games beginning, I will not worry about spoilers. The player party rescues the character of Captain Basch from a dungeon, some years after his supposed execution. Basch needs to spread the word that his death was faked and he was alive. How? Let Vaan cause a commotion. Vaan’s idea of a commotion? Running around a city yelling that he is Captain Basch.

The segment of the game where this comes from:

Vaan’s Lines:
I’m Captain Basch!
I’m Captain Basch fon Rosenburg of Dalmasca!
Don’t Listen to Ondore’s Lies!
Basch Lives!

These lines and how ridiculously that they are presented are one of the reason that Vaan is not a popular character among Final Fantasy fans.


The notoriety of this phrase and how absurd it is quickly made it a target of the internet.

Mega 64:
Mega64 spoofed this sequence by playing it out in real life.

This instance has inspired others to go out and do the same.
