Head of the underground resistance movement AVALANCHE. Barrett is fighting the mega conglomerate Shinra, Inc. which has monopolized Mako energy, building special reactors to suck it out of the planet. Barrett depends on brute strength and his Gun Arm to see him through. His wife died in an accident several years ago, and he now lives with his daughter Marlene.

Our verdict:

Barrett Wallace is an important part of what makes Final Fantasy VII the masterpiece it is. While being quite an obvious “tough guy with a warm heart”, there are certain depths to Barrett’s character including the death of his wife and his desperation to protect his daughter Marlene. You always know where you are with Barrett, solid and dependable if a little repetitive at times, and most importantly he is a pretty unique character (possibly somewhat similar to Final Fantasy X’s Blitzball ‘star’ Wakka.) Generally speaking, Barrett is a very enjoyable character whos morals seem to be in the right place. Viva la revoluciĆ³n!
