Some minor information hath leapt into mine view! Zack's new moronic last name, is, yes! ZACK FAIR! Check this out. Guess it wasn't a vandal there then Diablo >:P --Auron Kaizer 22:54, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

It was actually Goldberry who was getting pissed at the "vandal", I haven't touched this article (according to the history). I don't care about VII articles, unless they affect other games. Diablocon 22:57, 14 March 2007 (UTC)
Was this revealed in Crisis Core? --Crazyswordsman 00:17, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
Dang... well in that case I apologise openly for flaming the guy/gal that made the edit, HOWEVER, the rest of his/her edits were vandalism and/or BS in their entirity, so i was lulled into a false sense of no-security...--Goldberry2000 00:29, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
Yes, it was revealed in CC. It is derived from "fair weather", and is supposed to contrast "Cloud Strife". --Hecko X 05:50, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Zack, Zax!?Edit

In FF7 Last Order, the animation movie, there are some scenes where you can see some folders in one of the shinra offices with some paper sheets, with pictures and text about Sephiroth, Cloud and Zack... when you push the Pause-button right in that moment and read what is standing on this papers... you can read some things like "the SOLDIER Zax has"blah blah, I forgot what was standing there BUT it seems the name "Zack" was written in a typo there as "Zax"... in the beginning I thought maybe, but just maybe, his name is really Zax and the name Zack was just a miss-translation in the english version of the game, because the japanese name of Zack is written like "Zakusu" as far as I remember and it is possible to translate it in both ways... like the japanese name of Sabin ...he was named "Mash" but it could also be "Matthew". --Haitani 12:29, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Screen for FFVII? Edit

Would anyone mind if I added a screen for the FFVII section of the article, or would that be too many images? --Oranejo 02:54, 20 April 2008 (UTC)


Whoever keeps changing the Zack Fair page to the biased poorly third-person stated story, stop it.

Just because someone wants to become 'famous' on a flashing screen doesn't mean they can tamper with a perspective-balanced description of Zack.

Editing Edit

This is the point I was trying to get accross.

WRONG, it IS still biased. At the top of my head, from reading your edit it is basically saying. "Zack is so cool OH NOES shinra killed him lolz!" Just becuase you made it 'longer' and just because you want to be 'famous' on a flashing screen which is ridiculous doesn't mean you can just screw up a good page. Gratz on ruining it.

BlueHighwind TA

Well if a team of morons destroyed your work then Zack is not being respected, I mean DAMN! A LOT A FRICKIN SHINRA TROOPS KILLED HIM AND NOW THEY'RE TRYIN' TO DISRESPECT HIS ARTICLE THEN WTF???? Seriosuly people, am I the only one hwo sees a conection here? And I only like crisis core and advent children, thats why I am not a member, I wouldn't help anythiong but ff7, and only 2 of those.


Is there a source for placing Zack's height at 6'1'? Sephiroth is documented (in the FFVII manual) as being 6'1', and Zack is shorter than him. I had him placed at around 5'10. ( 17:03, 17 June 2008 (UTC))

You guys think Zack and Aerith more belonged together than Cloud and Aerith, right? Cause that's what I derived from Crisis Core. In fact, it's one of the few canon pairings I really like. I mean, they were so cute together!

that would also mean he is born in may/june. but how do we know the year? i dont recall seeing it anywhere. Oni Dark Link 21:20, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Well, before I saw Zack I would have agreed with Clerith, cause I just don't like Tifa and that's really the only other choice unless I wanna go into yaoi. But now that I've seen Zack and Aerith together, I have to go with Zaerith. I mean, Zack gave her all the ideas for the stuff you see in the original game, like selling flowers, and her pink outfit, and her pink bow, and the idea of charging people one date. ((He decided to repay her with one date for 'saving his life' when he fell into her church and she woke him up. ^-^))

Age of death.... Edit



He's talking about people hacking the game files of FFVII for the PC. The things you can do are pretty neat. Although the need to mention it in trivia just for him is pretty needless. You can change the characters to others to; you can even completely change the models.  ILHI 20:38, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Date of Birth Edit

Or more like, year of birth. I thought that the age difference between Cloud and Zack was 2 years, and if Cloud was born in 1986, how do you get 1985 for Zack's year of birth? Also according to other dates and years mentioned in the article his year of birth should be 1984. I'm confused... ( 11:23, 22 March 2009 (UTC)) . --BlueHighwind 12:23, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
zack was born in late may or early june providing star signs are the same in the final fantasy universe as they are over here.

Reasons for Zack to die Edit

If Zack had to die (except for ff7 being made pre-crisis core) w2hat reasons are there?

1. CLoud wouldn't be a hero, he would live in Zack's shadow forever!

Reasons for this topic to die: pointless, speculatory, irrelevant, take your pick. Drake Clawfang 04:58, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Chain Slash Edit

doesnt the chain slash similar to Cross-Slash? because the slash is X and it is in the box without the cover in the above?

Zack's Picture Edit

How do you fix pictures? I keep looking at Zack's article and all I see for his picture in that big box thing at the top are words that say "Zack as he appears in Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-". I mostly only fix grammatical and spelling errors so I'm not going to be of any help on this. --Mjka 17:30, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

I see it too; with the red X in the top left corner. It's not a Wikia coding related issue, I think our browsers are just laggy. Check back later and see if it fixes itself. 8bit 17:46, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Zifa or Zerith? Edit

Aeris is better for Cloud. But now Aeris is dead, and Living x Dead is never a good combination. And Zack is dead, and Living x Dead is never a good combination, so: Tifa x Cloud, Aerith x Zack. Not that I care at all. I just want to see Tifa and Cloud finding other ways of getting kids that isn't adoption. If you know what I mean. :p  ILHI 14:06, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
Sephiroth Dissidia Artwork

Didn't the writer of FF7 imply that Could and Aerith were never in love?

Yes, Cloud's emotions for Aerith were borrowed from Zack because of the Jenova cells, Cloud possibly love Tifa and the Zack inside Cloud love Aerith

--That's BS because Aerith says "You're different" and Cloud doesn't act like Zack at all, The poor translation of the original game don't help either as in the Japanese version it's strongly hinted Cloud loved Aerith. Why after he has regained his memories does he still have feelings for her?

Cloud can't borrow love for a character. When he met Aerith he didn't act like he knew her. If he took all of Zacks memories and persona he'd act like he knew her but he had no idea about that part of Zack's memory. So... yeah.

Circumstances of DeathEdit

Sephiroth Dissidia Artwork

a battalion could be as low as 300 men, which is a little more picture worthy of what they show in the ending. granted, that still seems unlikely though. on the other hand, the usual laws of physics have been out the window since AC, considering strength was an idea rarely touched upon in the game. yoshiyuki1711/28/10

Ultimania and In-gameEdit

FFT-Zack sprite

Most of the time Zack is mesaured agianst Sephiroth he seems small. But since he got the Buster Sword he's grown (look at the FMVS, He LOOKES TALLER) So since before the Nibelheim Incedent He's grown, DUH!!! No 3 Xaldin 21:35, December 21, 2009 (UTC)

Or maybe it's just the hair, lol Officious 03:39, February 24, 2010 (UTC)

Taking into account the hair is a good point. also, i believe(but could be wrong) that the policy is to accept whats in game as valid, and if other sources dont contradict, then they are citable. so by that logic 6'3" would be rightyoshiyuki17 11/28/10

A correction on Yosh: the Ultimanias are the final word; what they say is law, even if it controdicts every other source you have. They are the latest release, and are often filled with reworked production notes or character files. In other words, they take what they use to design the characters, and put it in a way we would understand it, and stick it in a book for all us. First hand information.

Believe in the future, and persist in the present, that's what I'll do!
Go visit the laboratory in the basement of the Shinra Mansion and examine one of the canisters in the bottom-right of the screen. Note that you can only get the flashback after you get Cloud back from Mideel.

Lets see how well Birth By Sleep kills him... Edit


Not really, I'm sure they'll do a good job. I think they did a good job in making him look younger. Because it's suppose to be like 10 years before KH1, so it makes sense to make him look younger. He looks good. The same with Cloud and the others, except Aerith, I hate her voice actor in KH2, that was a no. But the looks of the characters were okay. :)


Personally, for me, He's kinda cute. If you ask me, ;)

Question Edit

In either the American or Japanese version of Crisis Core, Zack says Irasshaimase. What does this mean. No 3 Xaldin 12:57, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

In Japanese, Irasshai(masen) means "Welcome!" Officious 03:38, February 24, 2010 (UTC)

Thats really like him if you think about it. No 3 Xaldin 22:31, February 24, 2010 (UTC)

The context of "irrashaimase" he uses here is the one that servers will use in restaurants to announce that the food is done. "Come and get it" is actually a pretty close translation, though some like to say, "Come get served" instead.

Portrait and Battle Render in FF7? Edit

"Strangely enough, Zack has a menu portrait in Final Fantasy VII, meaning he may have been meant to be playable in game, as he even had an in-game battle sprite." I'm not sure how long that's been there, but some Google searching is bringing up nada. Is there proof of this? Bluestarultor 23:49, July 8, 2010 (UTC)

He doesn't have a portrait, and he doesn't have a battle model. Or at least, if he does, it's not with the rest of the portraits and battle models respectively. 11:45, July 9, 2010 (UTC)

correct actions thingy...? Edit

what does it mean - "If the player performs the correct actions in Crisis Core, Zack can get his own fanclub like many other 1st Class SOLDIERs. Known simply as the "Zack Fair Fanclub", the player's actions determine its popularity by the end of the game." what are the correct actions? 10:46, September 11, 2010 (UTC)

You have to find Cissnei while in Junon and she tells you about Zack's fan club. Then you talk to the receptionist in Shinra Building and she reveals that she is the founder and sets you up for the Zack Fan Club mailing list and you start getting email from your own fan club.Keltainentoukokuu 21:24, September 11, 2010 (UTC)Keltainentoukokuu

oh so thats why the receptionist likes zack so much... ^^ 04:53, September 12, 2010 (UTC)

Incorrect info Edit

"He is the only Final Fantasy character (aside from Moogles) to appear in the game. "

Vastly incorrect. There are quite a few characters from FF to be in KH.

See a list here:

You sir are an idiot. Doreiku Kuroofangu 03:04, November 19, 2010 (UTC)

Instead of bashing the anons, why not give a reason as to why they are incorrect? This isn't the first time I've seen you trollan.

I call it as I see it kid. Doreiku Kuroofangu 04:25, November 19, 2010 (UTC)
Birth by Sleep is a game. Kingdom Hearts is a series. Out of that entire category listed there, only two characters are in Birth By Sleep: Moogles and Zack. Ergo, they are the only characters to appear in Birth by Sleep, ergo you sir are a moron. You twit. --BlueHighwind 04:27, November 19, 2010 (UTC)

Perhaps it should be edited to be more specific. Cool story bro

Who was taller? Edit

It says that Zack (6' 3) was a couple inches taller than Sephiroth (6' 1), but in all Nibelheim pictures, Sephiroth always looks taller than Zack.

Game of origin Edit

The KH wiki says he was introduced in the English/International versions of FF7 only, while our wiki makes no mention of it. I presume they're just in the wrong over there, but I thought I'd ask just in case we were missing a fairly important factoid. Anyone know the truth about that? Dazuro 05:38, December 27, 2010 (UTC)

Zack was always in the game, but I think the flashback where Zack is killed is in the International versions only. Zack is still seen in the photograph and briefly in the "true" Nibelheim flashbacks in Northern Crater and Cloud's Subconscious.Keltainentoukokuu 18:28, December 27, 2010 (UTC)

TFF:CC AppearanceEdit

In the newest issue of Famitsu, it is said that Zack originates from Before Crisis? source image I'm not sure how to interpret it.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 07:34, April 17, 2014 (UTC)
