A strong Monk, Tifa was the first in her class to enter the Hall of Records by way of an event. She bears many of the profession's inherent traits: high HP, a solid Attack stat, and high Speed along with pugilistic attacks and skills. Gloves and claws are her preferred weapons as well, though a true match for her skill is somewhat hard to find. Even with a dagger, Tifa is not to be taken lightly on the battlefield. However, she is somewhat weaker defensively than most of the characters in this class and needs a strong piece of light armor to compensate for the lack of Defense and Resistance.

Few of her Limit Breaks are used as her basic attacks.
