There’s a ton of really awesome video game themed origami out there that I haven’t really seen highlighted much.  Therefore I’m starting a series all about video game origami!

This first part is all about Final Fantasy themed origami.  I’m a huge fan of the Final Fantasy series and a lot of these models are quite awesome.

Firstly, it wouldn’t be a Final Fantasy themed post if it didn’t have Chocobos and here’s a great Chocobo design by Andrey Ermakov

Satoshi Kamiya has also designed a great origami Chocobo and I totally bought his book Works of Satoshi Kamiya 1995-2003 just so I could have the diagrams for it.

The Final Fantasy series has several different classes that usually have a similar and distinct costume design.  Hubert Villeneuve designed this fantastic White Mage and the paper he used captured the white and red pattern you usually see on White Mages perfectly.

The Malboro is a very powerful enemy found in most Final Fantasy games.  It’s got a very complex design and it’s very impressive that people were able to fold these with origami.
