Job: Top ranking SOLDIER officer
Weapon: Long sword
Even amongst the elite troops of SOLDIER, Sephiroth is known to be the best. His past is locked away in a confidential file held by Shinra Inc. His giant sword which only he can handle has extremely destructive power. Said to have disappeared in a battle years ago his current whereabouts are unknown.
Hmm, our verdict? This guy has to be one of the best ‘bad guys’ in any game. He has a whole history leading to his turning ‘evil’, so we actually get to know him more than most of the enemy characters in such games. His whole look is that of the ultimate bad guy, without falling into a clichéd foil (even with silver hair and black clothes). Moreover, Cloud’s obvious respect for Sephiroth makes their rivalry even more interesting.
