Professor Hojo's Characteristics

Head of Shinra's Research Division

As the absolute ruler of Shinra's Research Division, he's willing to do anything for the sake of scientific progress, including turning innocent people into test subjects for deadly experiments. In every aspect, he's the archetypal mad scientist.

Unlike other villains like Sephiroth, who have troubled pasts and arguably excuses for their behavior, Hojo is simply pure evil, and is one of the most hated characters by fans of the game as a result.

A character who plays an important role in the story

As the pioneer of the Jenova Project, using cells from the ancient being Jenova and Mako Energy to grant incredible powers to humans, Professor Hojo was an integral character in the original game's story. As his actions led to the creation of Sephiroth, Professor Hojo can be said to kickstart the events of the game.

In Episode 1 of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, which only covers the Midgar part of the original story, it's likely that the truth of Hojo's experiments won't be revealed just yet, but as his character has already been shown to make an appearance, we're excited to see what role he will play in the early part of the story.

Wonder how he'll look like when he transforms to helletic Hojo. The descent of the mad scientist and the moment you'll truly hate the best dad of the century.

His original model made him look like a proper mad scientist, but this new HD design of him makes him look completely evil
