Pop Culture References in FFXIV

The 1980s is Alive and Well in FFXIV Quest Titles.

Apparently not everything about Final Fantasy XIV is serious business.

Upon reviewing the Guildleves in our database, we couldn’t help but notice the number of pop-culture references embedded in the quest names. Some of the references are obvious – others, not so much. Also interesting is that nearly half of these references refer to songs, movies and games from the 1980s. That’s probably an indication of Square Enix’s target demographic as well as the ages of the company’s writers.

Here are just a few Guildleves named after pop-culture references – do you know where they’re from?

• Get to the Copper
• When Bats Cry
• Light for the Rites
