Tifa

Bright and optimistic. Tifa always cheers up the others when they’re down. But don’t let her looks fool you, she can decimate almost any enemy with her fists. She is one of the main members of AVALANCHE. She and Cloud were childhood friends, and although she has strong feelings for him, she would never admit it.

Our verdict:

There certainly is more to Tifa than initially meets the eye. She is one of the more gutsy and lively characters in this game with various abilities. Tifa is a bar hostess, yet she is high up in the group AVALANCHE where she works with Barrett and therefore clearly not the ‘weakling’ other characters seem to be. Tifa is more like Selphie from Final Fantasy VIII or even Rikku from Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2. For me in the Aeris vs Tifa fight, there is no contest.
