This is one of the most memorable moments from the Final Fantasy games, and probably in video game history as well.
How did it come to this? Well, according to the Final Fantasy VI wiki,
“Phantom Train‘s attacks include the dangerous Diabolic Whistle, which inflicts a random status ailment on each party member; Acid Rain; and Saintly Beam, both of which do mediocre magic damage to the entire party. It will only use Diabolic Whistle regularly if only two party members are alive, so if the player boarded the train with Shadow and keeps all party members healthy, they can avoid the risk.
I’m pretty sure Sabin would fit really well in the One Piece universe.
