VII

Tifa-FFVII-battle

Tifa is a playable character in Final Fantasy VII. She fights with kicks and punches, and has a unique Limit Break input via slot reels. Her weaponry includes unique weapons whose power depends on how many status ailments she is afflicted with. She briefly acts as the party leader after the party leaves the North Crater the first time. A hidden affection mechanic with Cloud determines whether she can go on a date with him during a scene, and which version of a scene plays toward the end of the game. Two of the Gold Saucer minigames can be played by Tifa in Cloud's stead if she is in the party.

BattleEdit

Tifa relies on her martial arts techniques and her stats are designed around the Monk character class from previous Final Fantasy games; thus her physical stats are better than her magic stats, and she equips claw and glove type weapons. She has lower HP growth than other characters, but her Strength growth gives her the third highest potential Strength of any character (behind only Cloud and Barret).

When joining the party, Tifa's starting level is given by the following formula:

\frac{CloudLevel + BarretLevel}{2} - 2

EquipmentEdit

Only a handful of Tifa's knuckles have higher-than-average strength, but the two that do are exceptional. The God's Hand has 255% Accuracy, meaning Tifa will never miss. This is particularly useful when using the D.blow ability, as it largely negates the Accuracy penalty from D.blow*the Accuracy becomes 85%. The other is her ultimate weapon, the Premium Heart, which grows stronger as Tifa's Limit Break gauge fills. Both weapons also boost her magic power.

Tifa has weapons which do not provide above average strength by default, but have the potential for it. The Master Fist's damage output doubles for each status ailment Tifa is under while it is equipped, and even outclasses several final weapons if Tifa has numerous ailments afflicting her. The Powersoul doubles in power if Tifa is near death, and quadruples in power when she is under Death Sentence. The Powersoul is also one of her three weapons to provide double AP growth, along with the Motor Drive and Platinum Fist.

Tifa can equip the female-only armor, Minerva Band. In addition to having many Materia slots and providing high-end stat boosts, Minerva Band nullifies damage from Fire, Ice, Holy and Gravity elements.

Limit BreaksEdit

FFVII Limit Break Tifa Somersault

Tifa's Limit Break Somersault.

Tifa's Limit Breaks are unlike most Final Fantasy VII characters': instead of selecting a move from a list, Tifa's Limit Breaks consist of consecutively hitting the opponent with each move adding on to the previous. The reels upgrade according to her Limit level. Each move deals physical damage to a random opponent. The Limits are selected through a process similar to the Slot skill from Final Fantasy VI. Each time the reel hits "Hit" the attack connects and does the normal damage of that attack. When the reels hit "Yeah!" damage is doubled, but each time it hits "Miss", the attack is not performed. The player stops the reel, and later skills have "Yeah!" harder to hit and surrounded by "Miss".

Her Limits are Beat Rush, Somersault, Waterkick, Meteodrive, Dolphin Blow, Meteor Strike and Final Heaven. Meteordrive and Meteor Strike are based on the Meteor Strike ability from Final Fantasy VI usable by Sabin (another Monk), while the rest of her moves were originally used by her. These abilities have made several appearances throughout the series beyond her appearance in Final Fantasy VII; for instance, she uses many of her Limits in Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children in the battle against Loz. Several of her moves have been used for her other appearances throughout the Final Fantasy series, while others have been replicated by other characters; notably, Dolphin Blow is an ability usable by Zell from Final Fantasy VIII (also a Monk).

Date mechanicsEdit

Round Square with Tifa

Tifa on a date with Cloud.

The party member who takes Cloud on a date during the party's second plot-related visit to Gold Saucer is decided by a hidden value in the game determined by the player's dialogue and party member choices. Depending on the player's choices, Cloud may go on a date with Aeris, Tifa, Yuffie, or even Barret.

How each character is chosen is based upon a hidden value in the game's code, which cannot be viewed without hacking. Tifa starts with the second highest value, at 30, after Aeris, who starts with 50.

Near the end of the game, Tifa's affection value determines the scene under the Highwind; to get the more "romantic" scene, she requires a value of 50 or more.

As party leaderEdit

Tifa becomes the party leader after Cloud temporarily leaves the party after the events at the Northern Cave. Tifa can do anything Cloud could as a party leader, but there are some dialogue changes. For example, Yuffie's dialogue changes if either Tifa or Cid are the party leaders when recruiting her in Final Fantasy VII. She calls Tifa "Boobs". Tifa can breed chocobos at the Chocobo Farm, but Gold Saucer is closed at this time. Tifa can recruit Vincent or Yuffie, do the Wutai sidequest, and brave the Ancient Forest. There are some unique lines if the player retrieves the Megalixir from a cupboard in Kalm as Tifa, or inspects the lights in the houses in Forgotten Capital. She can also play the piano in her old room in Nibelheim to get an Elemental Materia.

MinigamesEdit

Tifa snowboarding.

Two of the Gold Saucer minigames can be played by Tifa in Cloud's stead if she is in the party: Snowboarding and Chocobo Racing. She will sometimes ask Cloud if she can have a go when the player chooses to play. If Tifa and Cid are both in the party, Tifa will take precedence. Tifa and Cid are the party leaders during the time Cloud is lost, but during this time Gold Saucer is closed and Tifa and Cid can only play the games by asking Cloud.
