Sephiroth is pissed off, he destroys a planet.
Kuja is pissed off, he destroys all existence.


Kuja is pretty bad ass but when I first saw him I thought I'd hit that
So that kind of ruined him for me garland (think thats his name) was pretty g though

Regardless, there is no one more kick-ass than Sephiroth. He has everything that a super-villian needs, and he plays the role perfectly.

I think Sephiroth is in all actuality an homage to the greatest game villain of all time, who is also the greatest movie villain of all time. His looks, his personality, everything is a faded image of Dracula.

well sure you could say that. but then you're just a fag for liking Dracula more than Sephiroth.

Sephiroth is NOT the greatest villain of all time in video gaming. He's very flat and relies too much on being 'cool'. Lots of Final Fantasy's villains are rather...bland and uninspired. Seifer being something of an exception, if you even consider him an important enough antagonist.

Actually yeah, me too. Not those lame goblin-y Tolkien guys though. The orcs in Warcraft kick ass.

Though they really aren't very villainish.

Hmmm, The story behind Sephiroth makes you understand why he's a great Villian.
I mean come on. Wouldn't you hate humanity if your mother and father injected undead humanoid alien cells into you. You being unborn at the time. Then they bring you up to think that this Jenova is actually your mom.

Then you find out that your 'mom' is undead remains. You see the projects going on around you that your original father is creating and you go psycho and want to kill everyone.

I'm pretty sure he's being reasonable... ish o.o...

Ok, perhaps that is maybe somewhat of an overeaction....But it still is an understandable overeaction.

I prefer Kuja's theme tune, and also, Kuja doesn't need an eleven foot sword. Why?
Because he has a dragon.

I have to go with CW (no matter how hard it may be) but he does have the best music theme.

11 feet? I thought it was 7 feet. You do know that that's already longer than the normal longswords and is fast approaching the size of a lance right?

Dantes: You could sympathize with the bastard and say it' understandable, or you could just be mean and call him an evil bastard. XD Seriously though, I only understand half his mania. I can understand what he IS; what I don't get is HOW he became what he is. The joker is normal during a mission, then stumbles across a room filled with monsters inside the MAKO reactors chambers. I don't get how he made the connection between THEM and HIM since he never met his mom. Then he takes days on end looking throug a library, then goes mad to find "mommy" and slaughters everone on the way. It's almost as if it was all scripted to make an evil badass character...

Well technically you call such a weapon a Nodachi, normally wielded on horseback. Due to it's length it's near impossible to weild on foot without immense skill.
Also the only cool thing Kuja had was Ultima as a limit break. The dragons are just dragons and bahamut was not his nor was the invincible or even did he originally intend to destroy all life till he found out he was about to die in a big temper tantrum. (AKA Ultima).
Sephiroth may not be the most EVIL bad guy ever, but he is certainly the most ICONIC. Think bad guys in general, you think Darth Vader, Sephiroth and then the others..simple as that.

Kuja was just angry at the world because 90% of the population thought he was a woman when they first saw him.

It's not you, or Dantes.

It's 99.99999% of this world's, perhaps this universe's pathetic and over-zealous obssession with a B+ game that was so hero-worshiped that people who actually played 1-6 found themselves being driven to madness by bubblehead, wanna'be gamers jacking off to pictures of Cloud of and Sephiroth. Soon you couldn't go anywhere online where games are even mentioned, because you had armies of kids with names like, "Cloud7hfghf74uibfiof894gtruiobf", just because every other username with the letters c l o u d was taken.

The world became a mindless army of FF7 zombies, 1-6 might as well have never existed, because 7 was God. 8, one of the best FF's ever released, was so underrated that it's never been able to be recignized for it's greatness. Why?
Because 7 is God!

Amen to that OT, I think the character developement on eight was much more realistic (in reference to sephiroths psychotic breakdown). But i must say that the junction system still to this day gives me the shits. But 7 is like startrek, it's only cool because people who are obsessed with it say its cool and due to the majority of the worlds population being sheep, they say it's cool even if they haven't played it which results in this unrelenting obssesion

I only really like it for it's swordplay. The story is iffy. I just have this thing for buster blades and longswords. And meteors. Although it didn't have gun blades, and those are badass.

Still, I must agree with some of the above statements in that Sephiroth's theme is the best villain theme I know, especially the Advent Children remix.
