Rival Ryu Hayabusa

Sephiroth (セフィロス) is the main villain of the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII. He appears as a playable character in Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale.



Sephiroth is the main antagonist of Final Fantasy VII, and one of the major villains of its extended universe. A member of SOLDIER, Sephiroth was idolized for his supreme strength and considered a war hero. After misinterpreting his origins, and believing himself to be the only remaining survivor of the Ancients, or "Cetra," Sephiroth enacts a vendetta against mankind, with the ultimate goal of becoming a god and controlling the Planet. Many of the events in Final Fantasy VII are underlined by Cloud Strife and his friends trying to locate Sephiroth in order to make sense of unresolved questions laid forth early in the game. Sephiroth is arguably the most popular villain in the Final Fantasy series - his appearance, name, and musical theme are all highly praised among fans, and he has appeared in many spin-off titles. He is also consistently voted as one of the top video game villains in polls and lists on video game websites, such as GameFAQs and IGN.

In Japan, Sephiroth's voice was provided by seiyū Shinichiro Miki in Ehrgeiz: God Bless the Ring and Toshiyuki Morikawa in all subsequent appearances including the Kingdom Hearts series. His voice was provided by Lance Bass of *NSYNC fame in the English version of Kingdom Hearts, a decision that was received negatively by some fans. He is voiced by George Newbern in all subsequent appearances, which has been better received.

Sephiroth walks around in the Planet's Core and says he has heard about some news. About a tournament that is going to be held for the strongest of all universes. Cloud must be one of them, he thinks. Sephiroth says he will get his revenge and will kill everyone in his way before taking his leave.


Name: Ryu Hayabusa

Reason: Sephiroth walks around and notices that someone is sitting on the pillars of the rival stage. He says that he can show himself and Ryu jumps down on the ground. Sephiroth says that he also must be heading towards the power of the master, Ryu says that is none of his concern. Sephiroth says he swore himself that he will kill anyone in his way who tries to be there first and find his nemesis. Ryu says that apparently his duty is to fight Sephiroth and challenges him. Sephiroth comments that he woul've have let him lived, but because insists he accepts the challenge.

Connection: They both wield katana's and both make use of dark magic.


Sephiroth returns to the Planet Core where he sits down on a platform. He says that he unfortunately couldn't find face his nemesis but indeed has gained more power. Sephiroth rises into the air and laughs, saying he won't stop until he finds Cloud and kill him.


In battle, Sephiroth uses a "Focused Blade" style, bombarding his enemies with swift sword attacks. Sephiroth's attacks hit multiple times with only a single button press, and while pressing a button again will continue the combo, pressing it too soon will prevent Sephiroth from finishing the first strike before moving on to the second, minimizing overall damage and therefore timing is crucial to maximizing Sephiroth's power. When properly timed his melee strikes are powerful, but he has very few ranged capabilities. Sephiroth's ground speed is fairly fast, but he is not as fast as other characters. His attacks are versatile and hit over a wide area around him, but are weaker at long range.
