Aerith's and Cloud's Relationship - what was it really? : FinalFantasy
Hey, forgive me for my ignorance, it's been a really long time since I played through FF7. Since I've been subbed to r/finalfantasy, I've seen. Final Fantasy: 15 Things You Didn't Know About Cloud Strife 15 Cloud's Relationship With Sephiroth Is Based On A Real Life Rivalry . The most significant appearance of Sephiroth happened in Advent Children, where he. I understand that their relationship isn't the driving conflict of the game, .. Cloud and Tifa have canon sex before the final dungeon in FF7, he's.
He dueled another famous swordsman named Sasaki Kojiro in Musashi won the duel with a wooden training sword, known as a Bokken.
About Cloud and Tifa...
Tetsuya Nomura has claimed that the sword duels between Cloud and Sephiroth were inspired by the legends of Musashi and Kojiro. He wanted to make their battles look as skillful and as cool as possible, which is how he imagined the famous duel looked.Final Fantasy VII Advent Children [1080p]
You are given numerous chances to either compliment or denigrate each of the two ladies, with the possibility of showing favoritism towards one or the other. This culminates in a date sequence at the Gold Saucer amusement park, where Cloud visits several of the attractions with the lady who he was nicest to throughout the quest. The relationship mechanic is abandoned at the end of disc one when Aerith is killed by Sephiroth.
If you go out of your way to be nasty to both girls throughout the game, then there is a chance that you will go on the Gold Saucer date with Barret instead.
The date is totally platonic, with no romantic overtones. In fact, Barret spends most of it chastising Cloud for not asking any of the other girls in the party. It is also possible to go on a date with Yuffie during this sequence, though it is very difficult to pull off. We know nothing of his father, other than the fact that he disappeared when Cloud was a child. Being ignored and kept in the dark by the person closest to her was quite an alienating experience for Tifa.
Final Fantasy: Facts About Cloud Strife | ScreenRant
While the realization of his true past definitely took a toll on his mind, ostracizing Tifa from his true feelings was not necessary.
This self-apathy was so severe that Tifa had to step in and give a stern talk to Cloud about his crummy behavior. Apparently, there was another scene right after this blowup that showed Tifa regretting the blunt nature of her outburst, but this scene was removed from the final cut for time constraints.
Similarly, Tifa's last name is also meant to indicate something along the same lines. The obvious meaning of "Lockhart" is quite apparent, which we've discussed in detail. This took a fair bit of effort from Tifa. However, the same can be said for Tifa. While not overtly rude, Tifa had the problem of being too shy to let Cloud know about what she really felt about him. This perceived romance ended up on a slow burn, which culminated in one iconic scene in the game.
The fact that both of them could open up to each other to such an extent showcased something else. It suggested that their relationship had transformed for the better. Of course, nothing concrete came out of the whole affair. However, keeping all the facts in mind, it's certainly not a stretch to assume that Cloud and Tifa were meant to show the player that they were official.
It would've been implied that these two spent the night before the final battle together. Tifa and Cloud race to help Barret defend the pillar supporting the plate while Aeris takes Barret's daughter, Marleneto safety. Tifa, Cloud and Barret escape while Shinra captures Aeris. Sephiroth attacks the building and kills President Shinraand in the chaos the group is released from imprisonment.
In Kalm Cloud tells the group how he was deployed to Nibelheim with Sephiroth and how the latter destroyed the town.
His version is faulty, but a confused Tifa does not confront him both to protect him and because she doubts her own recollection.
Pursuit of Sephiroth Edit The group travels the world tracking Sephiroth with Tifa supporting the party when she can. In Gongaga they run into Zack's parents who worry about their son as they have not heard from him in years. When they arrive at Nibelheim they find the town rebuilt, and the villagers really Shinra employees hired to cover up the Sephiroth incident not remembering Cloud or Tifa ever living there. The group stays in Gold Saucer while the ropeway is being repaired, and Tifa is one of the possible date options for Cloud.
If Tifa goes out with Cloud during the night she laments on being insecure with her feelings and how she wishes she could tell something to him but finds herself unable to. Aeris absconds to the Forgotten Capital alone and when Cloud doubts he should continue on the quest Tifa and Barret push him into going, promising to support him. They witness Sephiroth murder Aeris and Tifa kneels by her body before running away in tears. When the group tracks Sephiroth down to the Whirlwind Maze Sephiroth shows Cloud the true events of Nibelheim's razing.
Sephiroth's manipulations take their toll and Cloud comes to believe he is not a real person, but someone made by Professor Hojo of Shinra with false memories. Cloud submits to Sephiroth's will and hands over the Black Materia they had stolen from Sephiroth earlier, before apologizing to Tifa as the North Crater shakes and the ancient beasts called Weapons awaken.
Tifa and Barret are brought to Junon where they are to be executed as scapegoats to show Shinra is still in control as Meteor looms in the sky. Meteorfall Edit Tifa is thrown into a gas chamber while the other party members hidden in the crowd save Barret.
