Sephiroth

Postby Ozental » Sat Jun 11, 2005 7:29 pm

There are so many fans of Final Fantasy out there in the world that it is untrue. Perhaps this is for many reasons - the story, the graphics, the sound, the characters. One infamous character is Sephiroth. So this poll explores the question: Is Sephiroth truly the greatest video game villain of all time?

For the Final Fantasy series, I should say yes, Sephiroth is the greatest villain. The story, the character and everything around him have created a very special villain. A legendary warrior thrown down the way of madness, someone you want to save but you cannot and someone you doesnt want to fight because he's the greatest make Sephiroth the greatest villain of the Final Fantasy Series.

Agreed. Sephiroth has the appearance, the moves, the story, and the rivals to be considered the greatest video game villain of all time.
I feel the change,
it's happening soon.
I look straight up,

I would agree that Sephiroth was the coolest but not the evilest, Final Fantasy X's villian was more evil.

Yes he was and still is. In advent children he takes kids.
Now that is really evil.

I for one do not agree with Frozentoxicty becuase it is only speculation that sephiroth actually survived the last battle and that he is in the movie i for one believe it is just more clones. But i do say this Sephiroth is the greatest villain ever.

I would actually disagree. He certainly was powerful and in my opinion he's the most impressive in regards to appearance and weaponry, but I think others are greater villains.

First off, I prefer Vormav from FFT for the greater mental depth.

And second, I think Kefka was actually more successful......WoR

Unlike all of you, I have never played a FF of any version. So I have no clue who you're talking about. I guess I'll have to do a little research and try to play a bit to see what it's like. Soryy, I'm no help on determining who the greatest villian is, but thank you all for getting me interested in finding out.

I seriosly thought that FF7 sucked. Now before im flamed to death Let me just say Kefka makes sephiroth look like a pansy.

I believe Sephiroth's the greatest villain of all time, not only for well...his role as a villain in FF7 (and Advent Children for some), but also for the brand image this character made.

Since Square released FF7, I daresay that Sephiroth remained one of the most memorable characters in the game (at least to me) as a villain.

Of course, I guess you could argue that's all because of the 'cool' factor. But what is it that made Sephiroth so appealing, so 'cool' to so many people? I doubt it's just the long silver hair and long, wicked-looking Masamune (although those are his trademarks lol). It's something deeper than that I believe.

So to me, Sephiroth is indeed the greatest video game villain of all time.

But look at Kefka he was nearly a god at the end. Why do you think they gave you 3 partys to do it with. He killed a whole castle with poison. He killed his own alleys used them, betray his empeor for power used a confused woman slaughterd millions. HOW DO YOU GET MORE EVIL THEN THAT.

Well let's see. Sephiroth not only.

a.) completed the Genocide that his mother started by wiping out the VERY LAST member of an entire species.

but then

b.) Decided that just wasn't good enough and summoned an enormous meteor to destroy the entire planet.

THEN after that failed (Into the realms of Advent Children now, kiddos) he

c.) Decided that he would harness the power of a planet-wide PLAGUE that had NO CURE to turne the Lifestream (Effectively the SOUL of a planet) into a power that he could use to make the ENTIRE PLANET move so that he could use it as a form of spaceship to go and slaughter more and more life-forms all across the universe.

Forgive me for thinking that beats wiping out an entire castle.

^.^

Sephy = Coolest villain ever :D

Sephiroth indeed is one hell of a villian though it may not be an rp guy Nightmare is very cool too.
Technically Soul Edge is whom I am talking of, killing countless souls to feed it's unending hunger.
Well that and as Nightmare looks cool.
So I pick Sephi for this one

Sephiroth is perhaps one of the best villains I've ever seen. He was capable of existing in Cloud's mind even after Cloud totally slaughtered him years ago.

The last boss you fight isn't Sephiroth, not the guy before but another SOLDIER clone who probably tried to make himself really powerful and Sephiroth didn't really refer to the same guy, it was just a gimmick for any SOLDIER clone that became as strong as Sephiroth.

So it's kind of like the devil or Agent Smith in which they could clone themselves in people's minds. Agent Smith did really clone himself but there is that metaphorical sense in that he's a lot like the devil.

Anyone can be the devil, Sephiroth or whatever you want to call them. That's what makes villains shine. To have that powerful intimidation to never leave a person's memory and exist forever like a very strong belief.

i have played ff7 and watched the movie and a lot of other games but sephiroth is the most badass villian you could ever get you woth crap ya self if you saw him down a unlit ally way at night.

i have acualy reserach sephiroth in history book for japanise histroy and there was a warrior that matched up in treams off skill and speed and abilty in use of the sword and this guy allways wore black and kill throusands.

this might pssibley be proof that mabye sephiroth was real
