Sephiroth is the main antagonist of Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VII Remake and one of the major antagonists in its extended universe. In spin-off appearances, Sephiroth is depicted as Cloud Strife‘s archenemy and is seen as a symbol of Cloud’s troubled past that haunts him. Sephiroth is a former renowned SOLDIER who became twisted.
Before his fall from grace, Sephiroth was one of the most lauded success stories of the Shinra Electric Power Company‘s SOLDIER program. His successes in the field of battle during the conflicts surrounding Shinra’s bid for global domination led to his status as a celebrity war hero and the poster boy for both the Shinra Military and the company’s SOLDIER program. Learning of his true origins drove him insane, causing him to be driven by a desire to destroy the world.
Sephiroth is briefly a party member during a flashback in the original Final Fantasy VII, and is both the penultimate and final boss.
It’s been a bit over two months since Minecraft’s Steve was initially revealed back on October 1, and we happen to be just three days past Ultimate’s second birthday (December 7).
You can get your hands on this new fighter either by purchasing them alone for $5.99 or by buying the Fighters Pass Vol. 2 for $29.99. This latter route will also get you Min Min and Steve, the two first DLC characters of Fighters Pass Vol. 2, as well as Sephiroth, the remaining three unidentified challengers, and the six new stages that the pack also includes.
Sephiroth revealed for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
There was one SOLDIER named Sephiroth, who was better than the rest, but when he found out about the terrible experiments that made him, he began to hate Shinra. And then, over time, he began to hate everything.
