Sephiroth's Characteristics

A SOLDIER known as a legend


Sephiroth has achieved countless victories as a Shinra SOLDIER, to the extent that he's often referred to as a hero. However, when he discovered that he was created by Shinra, it created a hatred for humanity so strong that he lost his mind and determined to wipe out the entire human race.

Disappeared five years ago


In the events of Final Fantasy Remake, Sephiroth found out the truth of his birth five years before the events of the story, leading him to go insane and attempt to wipe out humanity. According to the official record, he is supposed to have died during a top-secret mission. But it seems that Sephiroth may be watching Cloud from the shadows to this very day.

Appearance in Episode 1 (Midgar)


In the original game, Sephiroth does not appear in the flesh during the events in Midgar. However, in official trailers released for Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Cloud is shown to have a direct encounter with Sephiroth. As the Remake is shown to include events that were not included in the original game, it's likely that we can expect more appearances from Sephiroth even in Episode 1.

The only thing more mysterious than this guy himself is how his sword can withstand heavy attacks without chipping.

    • The mocap actors for the game only just start work.
      This prove the game is still in the very early stage of development.
      So the early trailer for part 2 is likely be in 2022 and the release date is likely 2023-2024.

      If you complete the game and go to Chapter 17 with Chapter Select, you will be able to find Chadley near the start of the chapter and access all the VR missions with any three characters of your choice. Hope this helps!
