Series appearances Edit
PocketStation memorycard icons Edit
An icon sprite of Seifer appears in the PocketStation memorycard file manager.
Dissidia Final Fantasy (2008) Edit
Seifer is mentioned in the Museum under Odin's entry, where it is mentioned Seifer countered the Zantetsuken and bisected Odin. Several references to Seifer also exist; Squall fights with a faster, one-handed style similar to Seifer, and begins his EX Burst by striking his opponent in an upside-down cross, similar to Seifer's Bloodfest Limit Break. Seifer appears as the name of a Ghost card, a Level 100 Ultimecia bearing the Green Gem and GF Eden battlegen items.
Seifer is mentioned in the Mognet letter sent by Mohnny, who describes him as one of the disciplinary committee who wears a gray coat and swings his gunblade. The mail is sent the next day in conjunction with the previous letter about Balamb Garden (see here).
- Attack of the Disciplinary Committee
Like you told me, I was trying to avoid bumping into the disciplinary committee, but this guy in gray coat is swinging his Gunblade at his posse, telling them to run after me! I'm a harmless animal, I swear!
The player may reply either "Just run!", "Hide and see what happens!" and "Stand your ground!" The option asks "Wanna help" on top.

The head of Balamb Garden's Disciplinary Committee and yet the most problematic student within its walls. Despite his superior fighting skills, Seifer's belligerent attitude and inability to follow orders have left him famous for being unable to pass the SeeD exam. When he crashes one of Squall's missions, he is caught by the sorceress Edea and turned against the Garden.
Seifer is an unlockable character, and is obtained by collecting Gray Crystal Shards.
Mirroring Squall, who focuses on Offense, Seifer focuses entirely on Defence. Most of his abilities either reduce damage, increase or recover the party's health. He can boost both his strength and agility, making him a balanced character with all-rounded power in all categories.

Despite his exceptional skills, Seifer's pride and selfishness leave him ever the student and out of SeeD. Even his loyal lackeys will be used as his pawns; anything can be sacrificed for his rivalry against Squall...

Guest appearances Edit
A younger version of Seifer appears in Kingdom Hearts II. He is the leader of the Twilight Town Disciplinary Committee, together with Fuu and Rai, and is idolized by Vivi for his strength. Seifer is known for being a top Struggle fighter, who also likes street brawls. Seifer calls Roxas "chicken wuss", which he calls Zell in Final Fantasy VIII.
In DiZ's simulated Twilight Town, he is a rival of Roxas and his friends, while in the real Twilight Town, Hayner is his main rival since Roxas never met Seifer from the real Twilight Town. He is antagonistic toward Sora, but after he saves Seifer's gang from the Nobodies, Seifer gives him the Struggle Trophy, an unspoken sign of respect. Although his rival Squall (under the name of Leon) appears in the series the two never meet, though they retain their trademark scars.
Seifer is voiced by Takehito Koyasu in the Japanese version and by Will Friedle in the English version.
He appears in the remake, Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross], on several medals.
