Prompto Argentum is a Final Fantasy series character created by Square Enix. He initially appears as a school friend of the crown prince of the Empire of Lucis, Noctis Lucis Caelum, in the anime web series Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV. Prompto joins Noctis on his road trip to meet & marry a princess from another country in the 2016 mainline title Final Fantasy XV, & battles along with him as they reject the Niflheim kingdom. He is the main protagonist of the post-launch DLC pack Episode Prompto, which digs deep into the protagonist’s background story as well as origin as a Niflheim puppet.
Prompto was initially disliked by series fans. To expand Prompto’s charm as a protagonist, his visual design was modified, and the in-game photography mechanic was adapted as an extension of his character. Shortly after the release of XV, critical and supporter reaction to Prompto enhanced drastically, with some critics quoting him as one of the greatest characters in the XV universe.
In the Japanese edition, he was voiced by Tetsuya Kakihara as well as Aki Kanada as a kid, and in the English edition, he was voiced by Robbie Daymond as well as Griffin Burns as a kid.
Concept and Design: Prompto Argentum
Tetsuya Nomura formed Prompto as a major member of the cast of Final Fantasy Versus XIII, a spin-off title intended to be part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis sub-series. His face and body as well as hairstyle have been redesigned several times, with the most recent changes largely influenced by negative fan feedback. The final draft of Prompto’s clothing consists of three distinct patterns made from what seems to be a variety of textiles.
His photography hobby—and its successive gameplay as well as story interactions—were crafted by the innovation team to make him beneficial and to allow each player to commemorate their journey all through the game. Prompto’s camera, according to director Hajime Tabata, is a manifestation of Prompto’s desire to document Noctis & Lunafreya’s journey.
Prompto Argentum: Appearance
Prompto is a young fellow of medium height as well as slim build, with the appearance of a teenage kid. He has blue eyes, light wrinkles, and short, unkempt blond hair that he claims “does not look like a chocobo butt.” He is dressed in black gloves, a black shirt with a white sequence, as well as a short sleeved black vest with a dark red sweatshirt attached under it. He’s dressed in dark trousers with a subtle leopard print. He’s dressed in black shoes with red soles and white fur lining.
The tags on Prompto’s black open vest vary. “It’s a lovely day, now witness some bastard screw it up,” says the one underneath the collar. (The text was altered for the final game from “watch some bastard fuck it up” to “watch some bastard fuck it up.” The centre one on the side is a representation of the Harley-Davidson Motor Company logo. “DEADORALIVE” is written on the back of Prompto’s vest. Prompto, like all other members of the party, wears an outfit with skull themes. Skulls adorn the buttons on his vest, a belt buckle in the form of a skull, and the label on his pants.
Prompto was overweight as a kid, and he wore sunglasses and a two-tone tan T-shirt with a colour coordinated bracelet.
He’s dressed casually in a burgundy sleeveless shirt with such a jacket over it and grey pants with the number 17 within a circle (the same styling he had as a child) and the message “Cauthess, DO NOT ENTER.” The Poachers are wearing the same pants.
Prompto Argentum maintains a lighthearted demeanour. He is described as a skirt-chasing mood maker with a chip on his neck because he is of a lower social status than his other mates and therefore feels inadequate but desires to be helpful.
Prompto’s uplifting attitude makes him easy to talk with and the life of Noctis’ group, but he has a short memory. Prompto ends up losing focus on the road while driving the Regalia in the post-credit scene of Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, and he is never seen driving afterwards.
