I wouldn’t call FFIX a lighthearted story. Despite the art style, colourful settings and generally whimsical first disc, this game is rife with dark themes & events that make it a top contender for most depressing game in the series. The villains commit genocide with varying levels of success (the lowest level being “about half”), almost every kingdom you go to is either invaded, destroyed, or both, an entire planet is destroyed (and the other was pretty much its life support), the characters experience existential angst that makes Cloud Strife look absolutely normal in comparison.
