This is part of a 2007 set of Flash Movies I put together for an Original Battle competition (I was the only participant who was using Flash) Each round lasted a week, as such the flash had to be completed inside that time frame.
The general idea behind the competition was to depict your character besting the other. They would of course do their own version as well.
My character's opponent was a sentient hat.
I decided to depart from the FF6 sprite and assembled parts for something that would allow for a wider range of motion. For the most part I got the effect I wanted.
