What are your favorite/cutest "victory poses" in JRPGs? (you know, what the characters do after winning a battle?)

One thing I've noticed in my JRPG career (since 2013) is how sometimes you get really cute "victory poses" (is that the right term?) from one or more of the girls on your team/party after winning a battle, for example:

Chrono Trigger: The way Marle leaps into the air it's like she's saying "YES!!" 馃槃

Tales of Phantasia: The way Arche gives you those cute sideways C eyes and sometimes says "Yatta!" (we did it!) which kinda sounds like "Yes sir!" in the game 馃槃

Tales of Destiny: The way Rutee leaps and gives you that huge happy face and how Philia takes down her glasses and winks at ya 馃槃

Tales of Eternia (Destiny 2): Most everything about Meredy is adorable but especially how after a battle she'll say "Did we win!?" 馃槃聽and how she likes to say "You bet!" a lot 馃檪聽 聽I think so far she's my favorite cute/adorable chick in an JRPG thus far.馃グ

Lunar Silver Star: The way Luna does that cute little dance (and the little healing song she does) and especially how Jessica jumps and spins around 馃槃聽 聽Those fangs of hers sure aren't cute though... 馃槥

Dragon Quest 11: Not a victory pose but I gotta include it: the way Veronica holds up the the Sage's Stone and says "Ta-Da!" 馃槃

NEW: Grandia: The way Sue says "Hip hip hooray!" or "Pretty easy, right Puffy?聽 mmm-hmm!" with those adorable sideways C eyes and ESPECIALLY her/Puffy's cheerleading move to heal everyone is just so kawaii!馃グ聽 Sadly (minor spoiler alert) she leaves your party/team about halfwayish through the game 馃槥

I'm sure there's others but that's just a sample of what I've seen thus far...

All the more reason I am just beside myself wondering why Final Fantasy 15 didn't even have one chick in the party...and all the dudes look/dress way too similar besides 馃槥

PS: I sure hope you guys don't think I'm too much of a weirdo for pointing these kind of things out...

Does this have to be girls? 聽Because then my answer is Cloud in drag spinning聽his sword around. 聽I believe it鈥檚 called the helicopter and doing it in a Subway is frowned upon. 聽Actually even聽if it doesn鈥檛 have to be girls my answer isn鈥檛 changing. 聽

Well, he was pretending to be a girl at least...and if is really convincing at it you score a trophy! 馃槃聽 So if he does the helicopter move聽at a McDonalds or a Pizza Hut or Kentucky Fried Chicken it's okay? 馃槃

For the last time, I don't CARE if this denies me a platinum in FF7 but I am not not NOT dating a guy!!! 馃槢

This is the correct answer. This may be in fact the most correct answer in the history of all questions.

So it is now confirmed that FF16 will have at least one chick...THANK GOD...聽 I hope they're not gonna stop at just three main characters though.聽 I mean Two Guys and a Girl works fine for Dragon Quest/Warrior 2 and a 90s sitcom but I hope we get additional cast.

Starting to sound like a cinemax "movie" plot in here.

Channel has been known for late night soft core porn movies they picked up or made in the 90s/00s probably still on cable.聽 Two guys and a girl, just three main characters.

Umm, this is the Two Guys and a Girl I was talking about...

Not an RPG but I gotta mention this now that it came to my mind...when Link in Wind Waker happily jumps up and down as if to say "Yay!" whenever he beats a boss...and of course I would tell my wife whenever I beat a Zelda boss (or find/win a Heart Piece) that I won her heart 馃槃

So now I'm giving Grandia (PS1 of course) a whirl and isn't Sue just off the charts adorable?聽馃グ聽 She even says "ta da!" right near the beginning and when she wins in battle she'll say either "That was easy, right Puffy?" (yes just like in the Lunar games, Sue gets a flying sidekick) or "Hip, hip, hooray!" with those cute sideways C eyes that JRPG/anime characters are often famous for. 馃檪聽 So yeah, you guys know I appreciate cute chicks in JRPGs and they sure don't come much cuter than Sue!聽 But (minor spoiler), sadly she leaves your team about halfway-ish through the game, bummer 馃槥

The menus in that game I must say are very nicely done and it along with the character portraits/expressions remind me of Misadventures of Tron Bonne (one of my first ever PS1 games from waaaaay back in my college days!).聽 And of course I always appreciate bright colorful graphics in a proper JRPG like this one! 馃檪
