Final Fantasy VII Character
"A mystical man, stern and upright while at the same time dark and mysterious..."
—Description

Vincent Valentine is an optional playable character in Final Fantasy VII, and main character of Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII-. A former Turk with a mysterious past, Vincent's hidden secrets tie him directly to several of the main antagonists of the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII. At one time, though it has now been proven false, it was even rumored he was the father of Sephiroth.

Vincent's weapon of choice is a handgun and his Limit Breaks cause him to shapeshift as a result of the experiments Hojo performed on him. His Japanese voice actor is Shougo Suzuki, and he is voiced by Steven Jay Blum in English. Since his introduction, he has become one of the most popular characters in the Compilation.

Appearance

Artwork by Yoshitaka Amano.

Vincent is a man physically in his late 20s, and stands roughly six feet tall. He has crimson eyes and long black hair that streams about a bit wildly at times. He wears a red band over his head with his bangs emerging over it. Vincent's most distinctive feature is his tattered red cape, held in place over his shoulders and lower face by several buckles. Underneath his cape, Vincent's attire is black with several straps and buckles. Vincent wears a holster for his gun against his right leg, and pointed metallic boots. He also wears a golden gauntlet on his left arm. His weapon of choice is the Cerberus, a three-barreled revolver. Vincent has kept this look in all his appearances, with subtle variations. His gauntlet was originally rumored to be a prosthetic claw, but newer artwork and information strongly indicates that it is simply metal armor covering a black leather glove.

Vincent was originally intended to appear in Kingdom Hearts alongside Cloud Strife, but was removed (see below), and aspects of his costume were incorporated into Cloud's design, including his tattered red cloak and gauntlet. In Dirge of Cerberus, Vincent's Galian Beast and Chaos forms incorporate his design into them; Galian Beast, for example, is wearing a shorter version of Vincent's cloak as a kilt, while Chaos's feet resemble Vincent's boots. In Advent Children, Vincent's cloak was meant to have an organic feel to it and was very difficult to animate. Furthermore, the developers decided that changing his costume would be conflicting with his character, so Vincent was the only living character in the film to appear the same as he had in Final Fantasy VII, although there are still minor changes such as a full body suit and a glove completely covering his previously partially bare right arm.

Character

Menu portrait
"Cold, huh? I guess that's just the way I am...sorry"
—Vincent

Dark and brooding over his past "sins", Vincent carries many burdens and secrets. Despite his cold personality, he is not uncaring: at a point where Cloud admits he thought Vincent was cold and did not care about the planet, Vincent casually brushes off the remark. He also has a soft spot for Lucrecia, referring to her as a beautiful lady when meeting Cloud's allies. He fiercely despises Hojo for his various immoral actions, and it is the promise of meeting him that stirs him to accompany the party in Final Fantasy VII. Vincent is reluctant to speak, although when he does he typically has something very important to say.

Nojima has noted that Vincent is naturally a loner, and had he not been a former ally of Cloud and his friends, he probably would not have joined them to fight Bahamut SIN in Advent Children. His voice actor Shogo Suzuki noted that Vincent's few appearances had a profound impact each time they occur, and that Tifa's remark "they're our friends" after Vincent's arrival shows his underlying warmth. He was also noted to be very similar to Cloud, only more mature and older, which influenced his character and voice work. Vincent was originally intended to appear in Kingdom Hearts with Cloud, but it was decided to remove him due to similar brooding personalities.

Story

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)
"That was my sin, and this...this is my punishment."
—Vincent, referring to his inability to stop the Jenova Project.
Vincent while he was a Turk.

About 25 to thirty years before Final Fantasy VII, Vincent was once a member of the Turks, which was then known as Shinra's "Department of Administrative Research." When he was assigned to supervise the Jenova Project in Nibelheim, he fell in love with a scientist named Lucrecia Crescent, an assistant to Gast Faremis. When he discovered her link to his deceased father, Lucrecia fled from Vincent, ultimately entering a relationship with her associate Professor Hojo instead. Lucrecia became pregnant afterward, and Hojo planned to use the fetus as a test subject for the Jenova Project.

Vincent objected to the use of humans — especially Lucrecia — as test subjects. Even so, in the interest of science, Lucrecia proceeded with the treatment and became very sick as a result. Outraged, Vincent confronted Hojo in the Shinra Mansion's underground laboratory and a heated argument ensued. Hojo ended it with treachery, pulling a gun from his lab coat and shooting Vincent in the chest. He proceeded to use Vincent's half-dead body as the subject for experiments involving strengthening the endurance of the human body, and metamorphosis, enabling the body to transform into various monstrous forms. While Hojo does succeed in making Vincent's body stronger, Vincent dies during the procedure.

Lucrecia, devastated with Vincent's death, used her knowledge about Chaos to resuscitate him by infusing the Chaos-tainted Mako into him. The procedure worked, as Vincent's body, due to Hojo's previous experiments was strong enough to become a vessel for Chaos, however, Chaos was completely out of control and only stopped when the Protomateria had a reaction to Chaos. The Protomateria, which had been discovered by Grimoire alongside Chaos and theorized by Lucrecia to have been created by the Planet "out of necessity as a means to control Chaos and prolong it's own inevitable fate," had been in Lucrecia's laboratory. She put it inside Vincent's chest, and thus Vincent was able to control Chaos to a degree. Vincent later awakened on the operating table and responded to his modified body with both anguish and rage.

Believing himself responsible for Lucrecia's illness after Sephiroth's birth, he locked himself inside a coffin in the basement of Nibelheim's Shinra Mansion, where he slept mostly undisturbed for 28 years to atone for his "sins". He constantly relived his "nightmare" for these years as a punishment for his inability to stop Lucrecia from submitting to Hojo's experiment on her unborn baby.

Before Crisis -Final Fantasy VII-

Vincent in Before Crisis.

On December 19th, 2006, in Episode 19, the player's Turk and Verdot search for the Support Materia for the Summon Zirconiade at the Shinra Mansion. While searching, Verdot awakens Vincent inside his coffin. Despite the differences in their physical appearance, Vincent and Verdot knew each other when they were with the Turks. When he wakes up, Vincent helps the Turks fight AVALANCHE, and displays sharp shooting skills, though he is rather jaded after his long sleep. It would turn out that the Materia was hidden inside the mansion and he knew of its existence. He gave it to Verdot before he returned to his rest once more, refusing to leave with the Turks.

Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Vincent sleeping inside his coffin.

When Zack Fair heard groaning coming from a coffin, he opened it and was startled saying "there's someone sleeping in there!". Due to the camera angle, Vincent is not actually seen. Deciding against disturbing the slumbering man, he replaced the cover, which locked back into place.

Final Fantasy VII

Vincent's battle model.

Vincent was discovered by Cloud and the party in a locked room in the basement of Shinra Manor in Nibelheim. After some careful coaxing, he was talked out of his sleep and spoke to Cloud. Cloud told him about Sephiroth, and Vincent, knowing that he was the child Lucrecia had conceived, considered it another "sin" and returned to sleep. However, when Cloud tried to leave, Vincent followed and asked if they would meet Hojo. Cloud confirmed this, and Vincent agreed to accompany him with thoughts of claiming revenge.

Later in the game, when the party found Lucrecia in the Crystal Cave, Vincent's backstory was hinted at, with scenes depicting an argument between Vincent and Hojo over Lucrecia, and Hojo shooting Vincent and experimenting on him. However, the lack of dialogue in the scenes made their true significance ambiguous at best. When the party confronted Hojo at the controls of the Sister Ray, Vincent had a small scene where he claimed that it was Hojo, not him, that was meant to sleep and atone for his crimes. Beyond these two segments, Vincent's character is fairly inconsequential.

As Vincent was an optional character in the game, he, along with Yuffie, was not shown in the ending FMV. Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII- retcons that the two of them returned to Midgar early to help evacuate the city before Meteor hit, saving many lives, including a heavily-injured Rufus Shinra. This occurs following Sephiroth's defeat, while the other characters watch the events from above in the Highwind. However in Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, both are seen with the rest of the group fighting Sephiroth during the last battle.

Acquiring Vincent

Vincent joins the party.

In Nibelheim, get the Mansion Key from the safe upstairs in the Shinra Mansion. The combination is RIGHT TO 36, LEFT TO 10, RIGHT TO 59, RIGHT TO 97. Following this is a tough boss called Lost Number. Pick up the key from the safe after the battle and enter the locked cellar halfway to the library in the basement. Enter the cellar using the gold key from the safe. Touch the foot of the purple coffin. The lid will fly off and Vincent will talk to you. Choose to talk about Sephiroth when he asks you a question. When the coffin closes, touch the coffin again. Choose to ask his name when Vincent poses another question, and you can name him. Leave the cavern and he will join you.

Novellas

Vincent appears in the On the Way to a Smile novella "Case of Red XIII". He quickly leaves Cloud and the others in the Forgotten Capital with a cold "bye". During his journeys he follows a Turk helicopter and arrives at a hunter camp near Nibelheim. He shoots down Red XIII when he attacks one of the huts. He explains to Red XIII that his actions were wrong and leaves.

He meets Red XIII later again at the Forgotten Capital. Red XIII is scared that, due to his long lifespan, he will lose everyone he loves and live a life of loneliness. Vincent comforts him and reveals that he will always be with him because he is immortal. They agree that he and Red XIII will always meet once a year in Midgar.

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete

Vincent in Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children.

During the year following Final Fantasy VII, Vincent traveled the world, mysteriously popping in and out, retrieving information and helping those in need, keeping even looser connection with his friends than the rest of the party. In 2009, he eventually followed rumors to the Forgotten Capital, where the Remnants of Sephiroth were stationed. After Tseng and Elena were struck down and tortured by the trio at the Northern Crater, Vincent rescued them and helped them recover, while getting as much information about the remnants as he could.

When Kadaj began to fight Cloud in the Forgotten City, Vincent rushed in and opened fire at Kadaj while picking up Cloud and carrying him to safety. Resting in a remote part of the forest, Vincent relayed information about the Geostigma to Cloud, and the impending rebirth of Sephiroth. Cloud, still tormented over his guilt at being unable to prevent the deaths of Aerith and Zack, asked Vincent if sins were ever forgiven. Vincent simply replied "I've never tried". After a few minutes of thought, Cloud decided to try, and tells Vincent that he would "phone in the verdict".

Vincent rescuing Cloud.

Vincent showed up with the rest of AVALANCHE for the battle against Bahamut SIN, inquiring as to where he could buy a cell phone (a joke in the film; he apparently is the only member of AVALANCHE without one). He told the party the truth about Kadaj aboard the Shera, while Cloud dueled him atop the remains of Shinra Headquarters. Although the party members were eager to help, Vincent told them that Cloud could handle him alone.

During the bonus feature Reminiscence of Final Fantasy VII, Vincent made a call to Cloud. At some point after Advent Children, Vincent purchased a cell phone, and made a point to relay a message to Yuffie that she had no right to call it.

When fighting BahamutSIN, an explosion happens on the ground, and Vincent emerges with a fire trail. It is not confirmed if it was a jump or flight ability.

Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII-

"Hmph. Guess I have no choice. It's time...to save the world."
—Vincent
Artwork of Vincent in Dirge of Cerberus by Tetsuya Nomura.
Vincent's Dirge of Cerberus character model.

A year following the events of Advent Children, in 2010, Vincent was called into duty once again. When the mysterious group Deepground began attacking people around the world, Vincent Valentine and the World Regenesis Organization started investigating. Deepground, they found, was a group based from secret experiments underground in the Shinra Building that were trying to awaken the final Weapon, Omega. To do this, they were hunting down Vincent Valentine, who housed the powerful Protomateria needed to control Omega. Vincent was forced to fight off the constant attacks while trying to solve the mystery of his own dark past. Eventually, he got his answers with the help of a young Tsviet named Shelke.

Deepground was able to steal the Protomateria straight from Vincent's body, and Chaos became increasingly unstable within Vincent throughout the game. At the end, it was revealed that a digitized version of Hojo was the mastermind of the plot. Chaos was finally completely unleashed and defeated Hojo, Deepground, and Omega. When Vincent concluded his mission, he disappeared within the Crystal Cave where Lucrecia lay for some good time. Cloud's party eventually sent a befriended Shelke to retrieve Vincent, who had made his amends and forgiven himself for his "sin".

Vincent takes control of Chaos.

Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII- revealed that when Vincent confronted Hojo he was shot, and turned into a sample for Hojo's metamorphosis experiment. The experiment left Vincent with three demonic transformations, but he was left in a death-like state. Upon discovering this, Lucrecia took his body and attempted to save him by implanting the Chaos gene within him. While Vincent was revived by this process, he became Chaos itself and had no control over the form. The Protomateria then appeared and Lucrecia used the materia to suppress Chaos and allow Vincent to have some control over the transformation. In a flashback, Vincent woke up on a table in a lab, and looked down to find himself in his Galian Beast form.

It is ambiguous precisely what happened between Vincent's awakening in the laboratory and the beginning of his extended slumber. In a note written by Hojo - the first clue provided for uncovering Vincent - he claimed to have put Vincent to sleep in the basement himself. While there was originally much conjecture as to whether Vincent's sleep was fully voluntary versus induced because of his own attitude toward it and the mystery of his in-game attire and long hair, a flashback scene in Dirge of Cerberus clearly illustrates Vincent was experimented on and then immediately put to sleep in his current appearance as a Turk. His change of appearance to his current design is unexplained.

Equipment and Stats

CG render of Vincent.

In Final Fantasy VII, Vincent uses a variety of different pistols, revolvers, shotguns, and rifles. His default weapon is the Quicksilver pistol, which he can be seen carrying in Nomura's artwork. His ultimate weapon is known as Death Penalty. It becomes stronger the more enemies are dealt the killing blow with it equipped. Vincent's guns typically have mediocre attack power, but two of them have a 255% hit rate, meaning they will never miss, and all of his guns are Long Range. The 255% accuracy makes Vincent a good choice for the "Deathblow" Materia, which inflicts double damage but has low accuracy normally - the 255% hit rate can make up for this.

Vincent's primary weapon in both Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children and Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII- is the handgun Cerberus, named after the three-headed dog which guarded the Greek underworld for its three barrels (each of which is ornamented with a dog head in place of the iron sights). There is also a key chain attached to it that bears a Cerberus-shaped charm, which is referenced as the aforementioned "Dirge". It holds a total of eighteen rounds and fires three each time the trigger is pulled, making it extremely lethal to a normal person. The weapon can be upgraded to either be lighter, hold more ammo (80 rounds at most), or do more damage.

It is interesting to note that in the prologue of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, when the cast of Final Fantasy VII is shown fighting Sephiroth all wielding their base weapons, Vincent is shown to wield the Cerberus, rather than Quicksilver. This could possibly mean that he was meant to use the Cerberus all along, replacing the Quicksilver as his original weapon. However, there has been no confirmation of this replacement.

During the course of "Dirge of Cerberus," Vincent also acquires two other guns. One, a bolt-action rifle, is christened the "Hydra." The other, the "Griffon," resembles a Thompson machine gun, and has a rapid-fire ability, although shoots slowly enough that it is possible to only shoot one bullet. All three guns Vincent acquires in this game can be equipped with accessories, such as longer or shorter barrels, a scope, and Materia.

Limit Breaks

See videos of the various Breaks here.
Artwork of Galian Beast and Death Gigas, by Tetsuya Nomura.
Artwork of Hell Masker and Chaos.

Vincent's Limit Breaks are quite different from many others. There is only one Limit Break for each of the four levels. When he initiates one, he turns into a monster, who is constantly berserk, and stays that way until the battle is over, win or lose. When he shifts his form, Vincent's stats increase and his HP refills, but he cannot shift back at will. Thus, while his Limit Breaks can be very powerful, they are quite risky. If Vincent should be knocked out though, he will transform back to his normal form. Vincent is also notable in that he learns his new Limit Breaks the fastest of all party members, most others of which need to kill upwards of 70 enemies to learn their new techniques.

In the following table, the first attack listed in the description does damage based on Vincent's physical attack, while the second does damage based on Vincent's magic attack.

Development

During development, Vincent's character changed several times, from horror researcher to chemist to detective, and finally to a former member of the Turks. Although his connection to the Turks is not made explicit in Final Fantasy VII, it is explained in detail in Dirge of Cerberus. In Final Fantasy VII, a deleted scene involving Cloud explaining SOLDIER to the party would have involved Vincent, who would outright state he was a former Turk who investigated "the Sephiroth project" that would lead to the development of SOLDIER.

In another early draft, Vincent was a detective working supernatural cases, most of them bogus. His last job was investigating Shinra's secrets to expose them to the world for the benefit of a rival company. Vincent's relationship with Hojo would have gone back to the Midgar University medical department, and then the Shinra Research Lab. Using leverage with Hojo's assistant, Lucrecia, Vincent delves deeper into Hojo's work. However, Lucrecia is captured by Hojo and used unwittingly as part of the Jenova Project. Vincent tries to save her, but Hojo puts him to sleep for twenty-three years. When the party finds him, Vincent has no idea what year it is or even that he has had any experiments done to him at all. He would join the party in the hopes of getting revenge on Hojo and finding out Lucrecia's fate. The player would not know that Vincent could transform into monsters and when it happens Vincent would be the most shocked of all. His transformations could carry outside of battle, changing cutscenes depending upon his form. In this draft, Vincent's personality was wildly different, with a far more suave and talkative demeanor. He would even go out of his way to flirt with female party members.

Kazushige Nojima has noted that, although Vincent does not have many scenes, when he does speak he usually has much to say. Nojima compared him to Auron, as "even though he's supposed to be a silent character, he still tends to talk a lot".

Vincent's Job Class was originally listed as "Horror-Terror (Horror Researcher)".

Music

Vincent's leitmotif is titled "The Nightmare Begins". It is played in several key scenes regarding Vincent and his past, including his introduction in the basement of Shinra Mansion and during his flashback about Lucrecia.

Vincent is fought as a boss in the Training Mode of Before Crisis -Final Fantasy VII-.

Non-Final Fantasy Appearances

Ehrgeiz: God Bless the Ring

Vincent is a secret character in the game Ehrgeiz: God Bless The Ring. He uses his claw and spiky boots to aid his martial arts, and can fire his gun to attack from a distance. The gun can be charged, and charged shots create images of his Limit Break alter egos on impact. For his alternate costume, he dons a Turk uniform.

Trivia

  • A running joke about Vincent is that he is a vampire. In-line with common vampire myths, Vincent wears red and black with a cloak, has pale skin, is brooding, has pointed teeth as Chaos in "Dirge of Cerberus," and due to Hojo's experiments can shapeshift into various demonic forms and is immortal. He is also first found sleeping in a coffin in the basement of the Shinra mansion, and is seen with a glass of red liquid nearby in the opening of Dirge of Cerberus.
  • Vincent is one of the only two characters in the entire Compilation of Final Fantasy VII to have had more than one playable appearance in its continuity, the other being Cait Sith.
  • Despite his popularity, Vincent is not well endowed in terms of stats. He has the least HP at level 99 of all characters, and possesses only marginally more strength than Aeris, whilst still having far less MP and Magic power. Along with Cait Sith, he has the least Vitality at the highest levels, and his Dexterity is average.
  • Vincent is one of the series' only five playable characters, the others being Rydia, Fran, Vanille, and Fang whose appearance does not mirror their actual age. While he appears to be in his late 20s, he is, in actuality, over 50 years old.
  • Due to a glitch, with his ultimate weapon, Death Penalty, Vincent is capable of killing even the Emerald Weapon with one shot.

GTA

Up to date as of February 08, 2010

From Grand Theft Wiki

A Vincent in GTA San Andreas (Rear quarter view).

The Vincent is a 4-door car available in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV.

Contents

Design

GTA San Andreas

The Vincent in GTA San Andreas is generally designed as a generic four-door sedan with boxy design reminesent of those from the late 1980s. It resembles a BMW E34 5-Series, albeit with a "boxier" profile.

GTA IV

For GTA IV, Vincent largely resembles a 1999-2003 Mitsubishi Galant; the rear of the car may be influenced by the 1990-1991 Honda Accord, and the nose is reminiscent of the Mitsubishi Evolution X. This rendition of the Vincent is somewhat reminiscent of the GTA San Andreas Sentinel, particularly the areas surrounding the headlamps/corner lamps.

There are two variants of the Vincent in GTA IV: the standard model, and the LX2007 version, a sportier version that features a hood scoop, small spoiler and side skirts. There is no performance difference between the two models, the changes being purely cosmetic. The Vincent in GTA IV is manufactured by the Maibatsu Corporation.

Performance

GTA San Andreas

Acceleration and speed are acceptable, but unimpressive. The throaty engine sounds like a V6 and delivers sufficient torque, but this is unfortunately wasted on the front-wheel drivetrain. Handling is mushy, and the car suffers from understeer, but the brakes are quite good. The overall performance of the car is inferior to that of the Sentinel, which is also based on another BMW model. However, the Vincent is relatively well-constructed, enabling it to withstand a fair amount of damage.

GTA IV

Acceleration and top speed are acceptable but unimpressive, in line with the "everyday sedan" design of the Vincent. Gone is the FWD layout, in favor of a 40% Rear, 60% Front 4WD layout, coupled to a much more effective 5-speed gearbox. While the Vincent is handsome and has the potential to be quick, its usefulness is severely undermined by its poor brakes—stopping distances from top speed are roughly 1-1.5 city blocks, putting the Vincent's brakes among the least powerful in the game. Although it is equipped with Maibatsu's unique "sort-of-anti-lock" braking system, there is simply too much front wheel lockup, which, combined with the heaviness of the chassis, causes enormous understeer. Handling, however, has been upgraded in this rendition of the Vincent, feeling firm and gripping the road. Body roll is minimal, and, thanks to its 4WD drivetrain, the Vincent feels much more confident in the turns at conventional speeds (at high speeds it feels wayward and will almost always fishtail). Crash deformation is acceptable, and build quality seems to be on-par with the median of the class; in all, the Vincent is a good car for cruising at low speed, or for thrilling, dangerous driving at top speed.

Trivia

  • The Vincent in GTA IV can be sold to Stevie for $2,000, upon completion of his 30 vehicle theft requests.
  • The Vincent plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
  • In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the Loan Sharks drive to you in this vehicle if you owe money to the casinos.
  • In GTA IV, the Vincent has the same interior as the Imponte DF8-90 with cyan lighting instead.

Locations

In GTA San Andreas, the Vincent is usually found in San Fierro, mostly around the business centers. In GTA IV, the Vincent can be found frequently in Middle Park West.

Vincent is Walt's yellow Labrador retriever, and the only canine survivor of Oceanic Flight 815.

Contents

Before the crash

Vincent with his family ("Special")

Vincent originally belonged to Brian Porter, Walt's adoptive father. Vincent was present when a bird slammed into the sliding glass door, killing itself on impact. After Walt's mother, Susan, died, Michael took Vincent from Brian without his permission. When Walt objected, stating that Vincent belonged to Brian, Michael told Walt that Brian gave him the dog. He did this as an act to console his son and also perhaps, out of his contempt for Brian. ("Special")

At the airport, before the departure of Oceanic Flight 815, Walt expressed his concern at Vincent's safety in the luggage compartment of the plane. However, Michael reassured him that dogs travel in the luggage compartment of planes all the time and told him not to worry. Therefore, Vincent was presumably in the luggage compartment of the aircraft.

On the Island

Days 1–44 (Season 1)

Vincent detects an intruder in the camp. ("Walkabout")

Shortly after the crash, Vincent was searching the jungle . Whilst doing this, he heard a whistle. It was Christian Shephard. He called Vincent over and told him to go wake up his son. As Vincent ran off towards Jack to do this, Christian stated that Jack "had work to do". Vincent then continued running until he found Jack, who had just regained consciousness. As Jack awoke, he saw Vincent running through the jungle before he eventually stopped. After staring at Jack, Vincent continued exploring the jungle. ("So It Begins")  ("Pilot, Part 1")

Walt spent much of his early time on the Island searching for Vincent, thus creating conflict with Michael, who wanted Walt to stay close by. When Michael mentioned Vincent to Jack, Jack revealed that the dog was fine. ("Pilot, Part 2")

The next day, during a rainstorm, Michael and Walt were arguing. Walt told Michael that if he was his friend, he would look for Vincent. Michael replied that he hadn't given up on looking for the dog and he would do everything to find him. This led to Michael's promise to look for Vincent when the rain stopped. After making this promise, it immediately stopped raining. While looking, he heard something coming towards him and was unable to locate Vincent. Later on, Locke fashioned a high frequency whistle. He then used this whistle to call Vincent, who came running out of the jungle, attracted to the sound. Locke offered to let Michael bring Vincent to Walt so that Michael could reconcile with his son. Michael gave Vincent back to Walt shortly after this. ("Tabula Rasa")

One night on the beach, Vincent woke up the survivors with his barking. Michael and Walt didn't know what had caused this but it was revealed to be the boars invading the camp; they were attracted to the scent of the dead corpses in the plane. ("Walkabout")

When Walt would hang out with Locke and Boone, Vincent would stay with him. Vincent witnessed Walt throw his knife into the tree. However, Michael caught Walt with a knife in his hand, and he ordered Walt to take himself and Vincent away from Locke and back to the caves. Walt, along with Vincent, went back to Locke and Michael caught him again. When he told Walt that he can not see Locke, Walt stormed off into the jungle with Vincent. Whilst trekking through the jungle, Vincent detected something and started to bark. As the sound of rustling in the jungle got louder, Vincent suddenly barked madly. Walt was unable to keep hold of Vincent, and he ran away. Walt chased after him, dropping the dog’s leash in the process. When Walt got rescued by his father and Locke from a polar bear later on, Walt told Locke that Vincent had run away. However Locke assured him that he would come back, just as he did before. ("Special")

Vincent was chased by Michael in the jungle yet another time, which caused Michael to find Sun burying her fake driver's license. When Michael tried to comfort her, they nearly kissed, but Vincent showed up barking just at that moment. ("Buried Secrets")

When Walt left with Michael to seek rescue on the raft, he placed Vincent in the care of Shannon. Vincent initially tried to swim after the raft after it launched, but he shortly returned to the shore. In the following days, Vincent served as a source of comfort and distraction for Shannon, who had recently suffered the loss of her step-brother, Boone. ("Exodus, Part 1") ("Exodus, Part 2")

Days 44–65 (Season 2)

Vincent sits with Shannon and Sayid during the feast. ("Everybody Hates Hugo")

While the survivors hid in the caves from the Others, Vincent disappeared into the jungle. Shannon told Sayid that she couldn't lose the dog, as it was the only thing that someone asked her to do. So Shannon and Sayid ventured in the jungle to look for him. They found Vincent sitting in the jungle. When they attempted to catch him, Vincent ran off, and Shannon ran after him. She then heard whispers and saw Walt, who disappeared when Sayid came towards her with Vincent. ("Man of Science, Man of Faith")

Vincent and Michael reunite. ("Collision")  (promotional still)

Sun was working in her garden when she was interrupted by Claire carrying Aaron, and Shannon with Vincent. Claire told Sun nervously that they have found the message bottle from the raft. Vincent was later seen with Sayid, Shannon and Sun during the feast. ("Everybody Hates Hugo")

Shannon continued caring for Vincent, right up until her untimely death. Before her second vision of Walt she fed Vincent. After Shannon saw Walt a second time, she attempted to use Vincent to track him by smelling Walt's shirt but he led her to Boone's grave. He then led Shannon into the jungle but ran off just before her death. Later, Vincent returned to the beach to see Michael had returned and was reunited with him. ("Abandoned") ("Collision")

Vincent was also present before Charlie attacked Sun. Though he ran away before Charlie attacked her. He did not bark or defend her. It is possible that if he was still in the area, he would recognize Charlie and did not see any reason for alarm. ("The Long Con")

Vincent, with Sun in her garden ("The Long Con")

When Michael disappeared into the jungle to look for Walt, Vincent befriended Ana Lucia after she joined the fuselage survivors. His friendship with Ana Lucia was short-lived, as Michael murdered Ana Lucia not long after his return. Vincent befriended many of the island regulars and has ceased to have a single, identifiable "owner." He was seen with Sawyer, who was feeding him and petting him. As well as Hurley and Libby, who were also seen playing with him. ("The Long Con")  ("Maternity Leave")  ("S.O.S.")

While Charlie struggled to build the church, Vincent approached with a Virgin Mary statue in his mouth, dropping it at Charlie's feet. Charlie took the statue and followed Vincent to Sawyer's tent, where Charlie discovered the other Virgin Mary statues. He took them all and threw them in the ocean. ("Three Minutes")

Days 68–91 (Season 3)

Vincent emerged from the jungle to Hurley and Charlie with a human arm bone in his mouth. The hand on the arm held a key chain with a single key and a rabbit's foot. He led Hurley back into the woods, and eventually to the DHARMA van from which the arm and key originated. Vincent remained with Hurley, Charlie, Jin, and Sawyer as they fixed the van, and later went on a joyride with them when Hurley was able to restart the engine. ("Tricia Tanaka Is Dead")

Vincent pulled the blanket off of Paulo and Nikki's paralyzed bodies when they were presumed dead by the other survivors and awaiting burial. It is highly likely that Vincent knew they were still alive, given a dog's heightened perceptions. This wasn't picked up by the survivors, who buried the couple alive later that same day. ("Exposé")

Vincent was briefly seen on his leash with Hurley and Claire when they were leaving the beach for the radio tower in a bid to call for rescue. ("Greatest Hits")

Vincent was also seen leaving the camp and present at the radio tower, still under the care of Claire and Hurley. ("Through the Looking Glass")

Days 91–100 (Season 4)

Vincent with Charlotte's GPS ("Confirmed Dead")

Still under the care of Claire, Vincent was present when the survivors split into their two separate factions, and was taken by one of the survivors to join Locke's group, due to Hurley and Claire's affiliation with Locke. Hurley, Locke, and the other survivors who wanted to evade the Kahana crew walked off into the jungle with Vincent, headed for the Barracks. ("The Beginning of the End")

The following day, during their trek to the Barracks, the group came across Charlotte Lewis after she had parachuted to the Island. After being quizzed by the group, Charlotte became alarmed that this group didn't want salvation, and she eventually became their captive. Noticing she had a homing beacon to alert her location to her fellow crew members Miles Straume, Daniel Faraday and Frank Lapidus, the beacon was attached to Vincent and he was set free into the jungle to ensure that they wouldn't be found. While trying to track the missing crew member, Jack, Kate, Miles and Daniel were shocked to find Vincent in her place. ("Confirmed Dead")

Vincent finds a body on the beach. ("The Shape of Things to Come")

Vincent was then taken in by Jack's group and took refuge at the beach camp. After Charlotte and Daniel fled the beach camp to deactivate the Tempest station, Sun and Jin took Vincent as they searched for them. ("The Other Woman")

A few days later, when a body washed up on the beach from the freighter, Vincent relentlessly barked at it while Bernard called for Jack. The body was later revealed to be that of Ray, the freighter's doctor. ("The Shape of Things to Come")

Vincent is briefly visible in the background after Daniel first returned to the beach on the Zodiac raft, and can be seen on the left behind Juliet. Vincent was presumably on the beach when Ben moved the Island. ("There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3")

Season 5

Time flashes

Vincent is revealed to have been living with Rose and Bernard for three years. ("The Incident, Parts 1 & 2")

Vincent was on the beach when Bernard attempted to make a fire, after a flash of light brought the survivors to 1954. When the flaming arrows started to fly out of the darkness, Vincent was seen running away. ("The Lie") Vincent's collar was later found at a ravaged beach camp in the future by Locke after one of the time flashes. ("The Little Prince")

The sole survivors of the flaming arrow attack, Rose, Bernard and Vincent ended up in 1974 and since then have quietly retired to living in an abandoned hut in the jungle.

1974–1977

Three years later, after Sawyer, Kate and Juliet escaped from the DHARMA submarine and floated ashore, they discovered Vincent on the beach along with Rose and Bernard. The three were very pleased to see him in such good condition. ("The Incident, Parts 1 & 2")

Searching for Vincent

Searching for Vincent is often used by the shows' writers as motivation for the Island residents to venture into the jungle. Examples are:

Trivia

  • Vincent is of Latin origin, from Vincentius, and its meaning is "prevailing". The name originally derives from the Latin verb vincere, meaning "to conquer".
  • Vincent has met all of the main characters except Richard and Ilana.
  • Scenes in the Season 2 DVD extras showed Vincent in the Pala Ferry boat with Walt and Michael. Although he was never seen to be with them at the end of "Live Together, Die Alone", this led many to believe Vincent had left the Island with them. This was later disproved in "Tricia Tanaka Is Dead".
  • Vincent has actually been played by two different dogs. The original dog is female and her name is Madison, while a second male dog named Pono [1] is now also being used to portray Vincent.
  • "Wally Bolé" is an anagram for "Yellow Lab".
  • Vincent is the second character introduced in "Pilot, Part 1", after Jack.
  • In the French-language dub, the name Vincent is never mentioned. The dog is named "Vince".
  • Naveen Andrews, who portrays Sayid Jarrah, had a theory that the series finale will feature the rescue boats coming to rescue Vincent while the graves of all the survivors are seen behind him.
  • Damon Lindelof confirmed in the February 4, 2009 episode of the Official Lost Podcast that Vincent will survive through the end of Season 6, making Vincent the first and so far only character that has been confirmed to survive the entirety of the series. (Official Lost Podcast transcript/February 5th, 2009)
