Fatal Frame III's tattooed ritual. Having to take on so much pain from people and having it etched into your body and having to cast your own away in a shattered mirror and having to sleep for eternity so that others won't have to feel pain. The priestesses were extremely strong to do something like that.

I'd have to say Fatal Frame 3's ritual. The amount of pain and torment the priestess has to suffer is very heartbreaking. Tied would be Fatal Frame 2's because it's also really horrible.

2's and 1's rituals.  2's because of how horrifying and tragic it is and 1's because of how painful and terrible it was.

I would say the tattooing ritual. It's an interesting concept, to be able to give your pain physically to someone else, but also for the priestess to actually carry on that burden. Plus it doesn't seem AS painful as being strangled by your own blood and flesh, or being pulled apart by ropes >__> The two dancing rituals from FFIV looks really pretty too though, from what I've seen of them

I love the Ceremony of Passage of FF4 :

An hypnotic music, a mysterious woman who dances like possessed and the creepy light of the moon...

Brrrr... it gives me chills :D

2's Crimson Sacrifice. It makes the most logical sense to perform, and provides interesting opportunities for incest exploration of the twins' relationships.

The elder twin always resisted the crimson sacrifice ritual in their heart. Even Ryokan had. Taking his brother's life couldn't be right; living alone after knowing such perfect companionship couldn't be destiny.

The younger twin always understood, but the elder couldn't, until the very moment of the sacrifice, when suddenly he felt the life of his brother flowing into him, and finally comprehended what the priests meant when they said twins were one soul in two bodies.

It hurt, of course, but it was the pain of a wound healing. And when Yae's time came, she would understand that, too.



I think FF2 did the best job coming up with a ritual that blended emotion, imagery and narrative themes from the whole game, and the way it was used in the ending gave such a great sense of closure. It didn't feel pointlessly cruel like the Strangling Ritual, and it had a strong, coherent visual/spiritual motif that was lacking in FF3 and FF4. No question in my mind that this is the best ritual of the series.

Sorry for taking the cheap way but I couldn't say it any better.

The Kiraigou.  I don't fully understand it, I doubt anyone ever will, but the concept around it is interesting and The Day Without Suffering is my favorite post-ritual disaster.  Calling it the best doesn't feel right, as it's clearly not, but it's the one I prefer ultimately.

Crimson Sacrifice from FF2. It's sad that you have to sacrifice person who is so close to you and that's tragic.

Crimson Sacrifice from FF2. Maybe because it was the first FF game I got to know, but I have always found it most interesting and most logical out of all, with also a strong spiritual and symbolic meaning. It isn't just a majorly physical torment but also includes the surviving twin and their guilt, which opens more stories to be told of them and questions to be raised even after the ritual. Not to mention the bonds between twins play significant role, which not only breaks from the "sacrifice must not feel for others" pattern but also allows interesting relationships to be told. I like all the rituals in the series and while the Crimson Sacrifice may not be the most visual or mystically detailed it feels the most solid package. It is also explained through the game so well that I haven't had to read extra from the Internet to understand every detail. With FF3 I had to check some things and FF4 is its whole another case ;D Not to mention FF2's ritual is different from others eg. for it includes two main sacrifices (even if only one dies) as main performers opposed to a single woman and it didn't fail because of a woman's love for their man, which is refreshing between FF1 and FF3. It just simply feels the most unique and interesting to me out of them all.
