Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy Character
An optimistic woman proficient in hand-to-hand combat. Contrary to her rough-and-tumble appearance, she often encourages her friends.
—Description

Tifa Lockhart is the third representative for Final Fantasy VII and a Warrior of Cosmos in Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy. Tifa was a childhood friend of Cloud Strife and worked alongside the resistance group AVALANCHE to bring down Shinra. When her father's killer, Sephiroth, resurfaced, she worked along with Cloud and their friends to fight him and save the Planet. During Dissidia 012 her memory was erased, and all knowledge of Cloud was taken from her. However, she still keeps her hopes and dreams alive while confronting the forces of Chaos.

In the game's story mode, her opposing villain is Ultimecia.

AttireEdit

TifaAltOutfits

Tifa's design is identical to her original Final Fantasy VII appearance. She wears a sleeveless white tank top, a black miniskirt and a pair of black suspenders connected to her belt, fingerless gloves with metal protecting pads up to her elbows and red boots. Tifa's long, dark brown hair falls below her waist and is tied at the end in a distinctive dolphin-tail split. She has maroon eyes.

Tifa's first alternate outfit, "Leather Suit", is based on her black outfit in Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. It's composed of mostly black leather, a white tank-top under a black vest with a zipper going up the center. She wears dark boots and her hair is shorter, reaching mid-back. A small pink ribbon is wrapped around her left bicep in memory of Aerith Gainsborough.

Tifa's second alternate outfit, "Nibelheim Guide", is her Nibelheim guide cowgirl outfitFFCCVII-Tifa as seen in Final Fantasy VII's Nibelheim flashbacks and Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-. The outfit comprises of a tan leather skirt and a mini vest of the same color and fabric. She has a white and gray sleeveless button shirt under the vest, and wears a black leather belt with a turquoise gemstone on the buckle. She wears brown cowboy boots and a cowboy hat with a strap over her back.

Tifa has a DLC outfit available with the Legacy Edition of Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy or by a code obtained through having pre-ordered the game from Amazon. It is based on Yoshitaka Amano's artwork of herAmanoTifa, giving Tifa red gloves, boots, a skirt, and a single red suspender running across her torso. The back of her shirt is bare, held up with crossing straps. The outfit is known as "The Enforcer". Rather than being blonde like in the art, the outfit retains her brunette hair as in Ehrgeiz: God Bless the Ring's Amano-inspired costume.

Tifa's manikin, Imaginary Brawler, is light blue.

StoryEdit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Early in the 12th cycle, Tifa is confronted by Sephiroth, and she is unaware of who he is. Sephiroth states that he is her enemy, and nothing more. They battle, and Sephiroth has Tifa at sword point, until Cloud arrives, and defends Tifa. After Cloud defeats Sephiroth, Sephiroth leaves. Tifa, with no memory of Cloud, either, asked if they once knew each other. Cloud responds no, but warns her that he is a warrior of Chaos, and the next time they meet they would be enemies.

Sometime later, Tifa talks to Vaan, Laguna and Yuna as they try to find the way back to Cosmos' sanctuary. Later on after receiving Cosmos' power, she travels with them, and Lightning, before they become separated when attacked by Kuja, and Kefka.

Dissidia 012 Tifa trusts Kain

Tifa heals Kain with a potion.

During her travels, Tifa encounters and fights Ultimecia. Just before Ultimecia could defeat Tifa, Kain quickly intervenes and protects her. Before Ultimecia disappears, she warns Tifa of Kain's intentions, pointing to an unconscious Zidane. Before Tifa could aid Zidane, Kain swiftly grabs him and leaves, leaving Tifa to wonder what is going on. Shortly after, Tifa finds Kain, badly injured, and heals him with her last potion, claiming that she trust him. After Kain reveals all that he knows about the cycles of war, Tifa states that she'll continue to fight, refusing to let herself rest and wait for the next cycle and wanting to protect her friends. Kain warns her that she may not survive, but Tifa does not change her choice.

Afterwards, Tifa and Kain reunite with Lightning, Vaan, Laguna, and Yuna. Then the six of them set out to destroy the door to the Rift, which the manikins have arrived from. When the six of them reach Orphan's Cradle Tifa is amazed to see Vaan cool and collective, despite knowing what they were walking into, and admits that perhaps there is something to look forward too. Suddenly, they are quickly confronted by Exdeath, who was stalling for time to let the manikins come. Tifa leaves with most of the group, leaving Kain to hold off Exdeath, and the manikins pursuing them.

Later, at the Empyreal Paradox, Tifa with, her remaining allies fight off against Garland, the Emperor, the Cloud of Darkness, Kefka and Ultimecia, with Tifa battling Ultimecia once again. After Tifa and the others win, the villains flee, having bought enough time for the manikins to come. The party is rejoined by Kain, and the six of them fight a horde of manikins and close the door to the Rift. However, being severely outnumbered, the group falls in battle. When Shinryu comes and purifies Cosmos with her warriors for the next cycle of conflict, Tifa and her group are not purified, having lost all of their power. The Warrior of Light could only watch as the six fade away just before he collapses, and is taken to the next cycle.

Confessions of the CreatorEdit

After the player defeats the Chasm in the Rotting Land gateway and is directed to the Southern Lufenia gateway, Tifa can be found wandering near the Elvan Snowfields teleport stone, provided she is not currently in the player's party. When spoken to she vanishes and warns "everything is going to disappear". As the world of Confessions of the Creator is a hypothetical nightmare world where the cycles of war kept going and Feral Chaos killed all summoned warriors, this Tifa is likely a specter of the Tifa of this alternate world, and her words foreshadow the dream world vanishing when Feral Chaos is defeated. Tifa can no longer be found after the player conquers the Southern Lufenia gateway.

BattleEdit

See also: Tifa Lockhart/Dissidia/Quotes

Tifa is described as a Feint Brawler. By pressing Dissidia X Button while attacking Tifa will cancel her current attack and move behind the enemy, allowing her to attack them again by surprise. Each attack has a different timing for inputting the feint, and feinting when far away will cause Tifa to dash toward the opponent instead. The attack performed after a feint will have less reach than the initial attack, but feinting allows Tifa to dodge attacks, disrupt the opponent's attempts to block, and her attacks have a higher chance for critical hits after feinting.

She is able to use her Limit Breaks from Final Fantasy VII as attacks. As a downside Tifa is heavily a melee character, and if the player cannot master her feints she is only a mediocre fighter otherwise. Between the two monks, Prishe is more suited for direct and head-on combat, while Tifa requires more tactics and analysis.

BossEdit

Tifa is fought in Report 5, Side Story: Unexpected Fulfillment -1-. The player is required to use Sephiroth for the battle.

EX ModeEdit

Final Heaven
Tifa-EXMode

Tifa's EX Mode is Equipped Premium Heart, which equips the Premium Heart gloves, her ultimate weapon in Final Fantasy VII, over her fists. Tifa's EX Mode gives her the ability "Premium Heart", which increases Tifa's attack power proportional to how much EX Force she has left - which means the weapon works the same way as in Final Fantasy VII, where Tifa does more damage the fuller her Limit meter is.

Tifa's EX Burst is Final Heaven, her best Limit Break from Final Fantasy VII, which means all seven slots are available. Players must hit Dissidia X Button to stop the reels. The slots will have "Yeah!", "Hit", and "Miss". Once the reels have stopped, Tifa will attack her opponent seven times: Yeah! will use a punch attack; Hit results in a weak kick; and Miss will do nothing. After the seven hit sequence Tifa will finish the EX Burst with Final Heaven, where she charges energy into her fist, then dashes through the opponent delivering an explosive punch. If the player does not arrange the slots, it will result in one Yeah! and six miss, and the timing can be tricky, making Final Heaven powerful but difficult to master manually.

EquipmentEdit

Tifa can equip Rods, Staves, Grappling Weapons, Poles, Parrying Weapons, Bangles, Gauntlets, Hats, Hairpins, Clothing, Light Armor, and Chestplates.

AllusionsEdit

  • Like Cloud while executing his EX Burst, Tifa declares she's "breaking [her] limits", a clear reference to the term "Limit Break". The way in which Tifa's EX Burst is initiated using the slot reels "Yeah", "Hit" and "Miss" mirrors the way it is initialized in Final Fantasy VII. Upon finishing her EX Burst, Tifa poses in front of the camera like in her official artwork in Final Fantasy VII.
  • Tifa's Premium Heart gloves have the heart insignia from the Kingdom Hearts logo on them.
  • While fighting Terra, Tifa says "Don't rush to find answers, okay?" This is a paraphrase of what she says to Cloud while helping him regain his memories in the original Final Fantasy VII.
  • Before Cloud joins the fight between Sephiroth and Tifa, Sephiroth points his sword directly at Tifa, in a similar fashion to when she intervened in Sephiroth and Cloud's battle in Kingdom Hearts II.
  • Tifa's encounter quote "I'll show you Zangan's secret technique!" is a reference to her teacher, Zangan.
  • Another encounter quote of Tifa's is "Someone say, 'It's gonna be ok!'" This is a reference to her wanting Cloud to tell her that everything would be all right on the way to their final battle with Sephiroth in Final Fantasy VII.
  • Tifa's ultimate weapon, the Seventh Heaven, is named after her bar, 7th Heaven, from Final Fantasy VII, while Godhand and Premium Heart are weapons she can acquire.
  • When Cloud saves Tifa, she comments that Cloud was "like a hero, charging in to save the girl," which is what Cloud promised he would do when he left to join SOLDIER.
  • Tifa's Blizzard spells causes a vaguely star-shaped cluster of ice spikes to form, similar to how the spell was animated in Final Fantasy VII.
  • Tifa is the main character for 7th chapter of "Treachery of the Gods" storyline referencing Final Fantasy VII where she first appeared.
  • Tifa's Secret Voice data in which she says, "Words aren't the only way to convey your feelings", is the same thing she said to Cloud at the end of disk 2 in Final Fantasy VII. After purchasing the secret voice data, it can sometimes be heard at the end of Tifa's EX Burst.
  • There are several references to her fight with Loz in Final Fantasy VII Advent Children:
    • Rolling Blaze is taken from the move where Tifa brutally slams Loz down against the floor.
    • Moonsault Kick is also taken from the fight scene.
    • When starting her EX Burst, Tifa rebounds from the back "wall" and kicks at the opponent in a flurry of flower petals.
    • Although not in her repertoire of attacks, the deathblow Tifa delivered against Ultimecia's manikin is similar to one from the fight scene.
  • When Tifa performs a Feint Attack, green electricity can be seen, which is similar to the electricity that appeared on her hand while fighting Loz in Advent Children.
  • When using Falcon Dive, Tifa takes the form of the meteor from the logo of Final Fantasy VII.
  • Tifa's unique item, the Stretch Boxer, is probably a reference to the Orthopedic Underwear players could find inside Tifa's house during the Nibelheim flashback in the original game.

TriviaEdit

  • Director Mitsunori Takahashi had once said in an interview that if Tifa had not been included in Dissidia 012, he would not have made the game.[1]
  • As Cloud focuses on Fire spells and their upgrades, Tifa uses Blizzard-type magic in battle. Additionally, Cloud's spells are modeled after their Crisis Core versions, while Tifa's are modeled after the original Final Fantasy VII.
  • Tifa's EX Burst has the third-highest base power in the game after Gilgamesh and Cloud, assuming she is able to execute with a mostly full EX Gauge.
