Starbucks Barista Who Looks Like A Final Fantasy NPC Goes Viral

A photo of a former Starbucks barista has blown up (not literally) across social media, as the handsome lad named Jordan looks remarkably like an NPC from the Final Fantasy series.

The image actually originates from 2016, when Jordan used to work at a Starbucks store as a barista. In fairness, he is a talented cosplayer, as proven in the photo and his Instagram account, because surely, no one can naturally resemble a Final Fantasy NPC in such a striking way? 

If such a natural resemblance was possible, I suppose it’s a good job he doesn’t resemble Rubeus Hagrid from the original PlayStation game, Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone from 2001.

However, the debate on social media has had many saying that Jordan has more a resemblance to a character from the Devil May Cry series, Hope from Final Fantasy XIII or even Raiden from Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty.

Many had also asked whether Jordan is a real person?  Well yes, he is very real; he’s not an NPC, though it would be cool if he did appear as an NPC in a Final Fantasy game one day, such as the forthcoming PlayStation 5 exclusive, Final Fantasy XVI . You can actually check out Jordan’s Instagram page here. if you want to see more photos of his work.

In related news, the world was recently treated to the official reveal of Final Fantasy 16. The official video description reads: “The legacy of the crystals has shaped our history for long enough…” Watch the exciting teaser trailer for the newest title in the legendary FINAL FANTASY series. FINAL FANTASY XVI is the next all-new standalone single player action RPG from Square Enix, coming to PlayStation 5.
