The Fusion Swords are a six-piece sword assembly wielded by Cloud Strife. The base sword and the others in its set are used by Cloud as his preferred weapon in Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, the sequel film to Final Fantasy VII, as well as in a handful of spin-off titles. As a set of six swords, the fusion swords come in a variety of shapes and sizes and are thus suited to a variety of combat situations, and can combine to a single large sword similar in size and function to Cloud's famous Buster Sword.
The swords in their disassembled state are usually stored in racks inside the special compartments (three racks per compartment) on both sides of Cloud's motorcycle, the Fenrir. Cloud wears a harness on his back where he carries the swords.
Cloud performs most of his original Limit Breaks with combinations of the various swords. He uses Blade Beam with the main blade alone during the battle at the Forgotten Capital, and performs Climhazzard and Braver with the main blade with various other swords attached while fighting Bahamut SIN. To defeat Kadaj, Cloud uses Finishing Touch with all six swords combined. Against Sephiroth in Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete Cloud performs Omnislash with the completed assembly. In Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Cloud performs the new Limit Break "Omnislash Version 5" (超究武神覇斬 Version 5, Chōkyūbushinhazan Version 5?). The technique is a succession of six slashes using the fusion swords. It is significantly different from the Omnislash in the original game, which used a single sword for a longer sequence of fifteen slashes. Within the film the technique is performed on Sephiroth who is floating in mid-air; it is unknown how the technique would look performed on a grounded target. (More...)

Dead Fantasy is a series of fan-made CG action movies created by Monty Oum, starring a cast of characters from the Final Fantasy, Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden, and Kingdom Hearts game franchises, fighting it out against each other "battle royale-style" in a number of different environments, including archaic ruins and modern cities.
Since the first installment of Dead Fantasy, the series has been well-received by the fans of both game series, with trailers, previews and the installments themselves being featured at several gaming conventions. There are six movies in the series, and Oum had confirmed episodes VII, and VIII. It is unknown if these new episodes will be created due to Oum's death on February 1, 2015.
The project for the Dead Fantasy series started in July 2007 after Monty Oum gained acclaim for the creation of the fan made CG movie Haloid, which featured Metroid series's Samus Aran fighting the Halo series's Master Chief. His intention for Dead Fantasy was to create a new CG movie which featured more human characters, instead of simply "humanoid" characters, as was the case in Haloid.
While Monty used the original voices of the Dead or Alive cast, due to lack of voice clips or none at all, he used voices from different sources for the Final Fantasy characters.
The moves the girls execute are not just from their respective series. Monty Oum included salutes to many action games, manga and movies by including famous moves into Dead Fantasy, including moves from Soulcalibur, Tekken and Street Fighter. (more...)

The metropolis is ruled by the Order, an organization devout to their god, Bhunivelze. The residents spend their days absorbing the teachings of this sacred deity. Metal is a common material found in the various structures of this gothically tinged city. Traveling bags and other ornaments are scattered around, depicting a charming yet surreal atmosphere. As the day draws to an end, the city's serenity is no more. Monsters and other creatures of the night prowl the area, leaving Lightning to fend for her life.

Luxerion, the Divine City of Light (光都ルクセリオ, Kouto Rukuserio?) is one of the main locations in Nova Chrysalia in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. A religious organization known as the Order of Salvation is in charge of keeping the peace. The Order worships the deity Bhunivelze, and spreads his teachings to the populace praying for the doomed world's salvation. Snow's chapter in Final Fantasy XIII: Reminiscence -tracer of memories- reveals Luxerion was the first city built on Nova Chrysalia by the fal'Cie Pandaemonium, which later came to reside in Yusnaan.
After the formation of Nova Chrysalia, Hope Estheim, Snow Villiers, and Noel Kreiss made a pact to find a way to save the decaying world and established Luxerion before Snow became the patron of Yusnaan. When Hope disappeared 331 years after Nova Chrysalia's formation, it left a power vacuum the Order of Salvation exploited. Noel, burdened by guilt, took residence in the rundown area of Luxerion, the Warren, and came to be known as the vigilante "Shadow Hunter". (more...)

The master's teachings, must use a Blitz technique.
Blitz (必殺技, Hissatsu Waza?, lit. Special Move) is Sabin Rene Figaro's special command ability in Final Fantasy VI. Input using buttons or touch inputs, Blitz relies on the players' memory to effectively use, but can be potentially devastating. It deals damage based on Sabin's Magic stat, and not on any additional equipment. The hidden character Gogo may also use the Blitz command. When the game is played with two players on the Super Nintendo and PlayStation versions, if one player presses any buttons while the other is attempting to input a Blitz command, the Blitz will fail.
Sabin learns new Blitzes as he levels up, normally, similar to how Terra and Celes earn magic by leveling. The exception to this rule is Phantom Rush, which can be learned regardless of Sabin's level by visiting Duncan in his cabin, in the World of Ruin. All Blitzes are unblockable.
The Phantom Train is vulnerable to Sabin's Meteor Strike, called Suplex in the Super Nintendo localization. A suplex is a throw which usually involves arching/bridging either overhead or twisting to the side, so the opponent is slammed to the mat back-first. Sabin's ability to do this with a train has become an inside joke among fans. (more...)
