Tifa’s reaction & Cloud’s flirting in Remake are so adorable! BUT who will think they share the HOT news at this scene too.
Hello, my reader. Welcome to my analysis about Final Fantasy VII Remake and this is the first time I write about Cloti (Cloud x Tifa) which is one of my dreams. In this post, I found out something, something that made me feel Doki Doki behind their conversation during ch3, part1 of this FF7R.
Before I will start…
Before you will read this post, I strongly recommend you to play FF7 Remake, before proceeding.
- Please read Attention page first, to let you understand that my works are not 100% right.
- Spoilers up ahead.
- Therefore, I recommend you explore FF7 game series, movie, anime, novels, and etc.
- My English sucks, such, sub.
In this ch3 – Home Sweet Slum, I was surprised when Tifa Lockhart (ティファ ロックハート) urges for Cloud Strife (クラウド ストライフ) to say something sweet. Cloud’s flirting is the next punch that surprised me more because I never expect him to say something like that but what pierced my heart the most must be the scene when Tifa is blush along with how she escapes from him. Because of these combo attacks somewhere in Sector 7, I rewatch this scene so many times because I love Cloud and Tifa or I should say I love to watch when she gets the critical hit from that EX-SOLDIER and if I need to say my condition, I would say like this. ⇓
I mean, her opinion in Eng dub. (Click this image if you want to read Jap ver.)
However, I noticed something, something behind their talk that it is another reason why I wrote this post. If you already read my previous post, I ever explained how I analyzed the story/character’s thought by reading them as another level that I called it, the deepest layer. I will say that the moment between Tifa and Cloud are talking at the bar, has some hidden truths too. I will start with this. ⇓
Do you remember when she asks Cloud like this? ⇓
This is when she wants to know what he likes to drink that you can choose any choices. If you watch their moment as the direct truth only, you will see how they flirt each other (that is lovely) but after I watched them as another level, I noticed that these two are sharing some hot news about this game.
For example, Tifa’s question as to the image above can be interpreted as… ⇓
“What will it be?”
“What will this game/story be?”
Of course, I am not sure what is the meaning of “it” but this is my experiment. I hope changing this word can help you see the clear image.
And when I watched the same scene in FF7 OG, her question is different.
“…something to drink?”
The difference between these two versions is not the big deal if I didn’t suspect that there is something behind their flirting scene in Remake. But after I got the hot news behind it and I looked at her question in OG again, I think her question was changed significantly.
1) – Something hard and bitter.
The first answer by Cloud can be understood as what he wants to drink but after I saw this answer as another level, it means this game/story is going to deliver something hard and bitter is in this story.
In OG, even Cloud’s answer is different (you can look at the image above). I am impressed a little how they edited his answer to make us understand that he is talking about the drink he wants along with sharing some truths about this Remake/story at the same time. …Whoa.
And I love her honest, expressing her wish to her crush. Damage!
But that’s how I interpret as the story level. After I dived to another deeper level of her words, I feel that something sweet is another clue. The first clue I got is this game/story has something hard and bitter. So the question is what is something sweet?
The answer to this question can be found at this cool boy!
Yes. This means this story has something beautiful too. So if we collect two hints from Cloud, there are “hard & bitter” and “beautiful (and maybe even sweet too)” in this story, …whoa.
Or view as characters?
If you doubt if my assumptions are true because it is possible that it might be not as I wrote. Your doubt is understanding. Actually, those two drinks can be interpreted as two characters too. For example, the first drink and Cloud’s hint might mean himself and the second drink and his hint might mean another girl. It’s too bad the game doesn’t say more but when I continued watching the scene after Tifa left, while Cloud is drinking that second drink, I suspect that Jessie Rasberry (ジェシー・ラズベリー) has the answer because she shows up while he is drinking Cosmo Canyon.
So I think her appearance and her thought at that time, hide the answer of the girl who is the reflection of that beautiful red color drink. But it’s not like I am trying to say that Jessie is that answer because things or hiding the deeper truth are not easy like that.
Since I can’t decide which “the truths of this game” or “characters” is the correct answer, I tried to look for any clues in this place. Another clue is an outstanding object that is near Tifa and Cloud that is… ⇓
Please look at the screen of this “Volcano Bombs” game cabinet. There are bombs and when Tifa activates this machine, the numbers of the screen will change to “777777”. In my opinion,
- those bombs connect with “something hard & bitter”
- and 777777 connects with “beautiful & sweet”.
…Good luck, Cloud.
Moreover, if I view this machine to check the answers as “characters”, bombs and 777777 can be interpreted like this. ⇓
- those bombs connect with “some character(s)”
- and 777777 connects with “super lucky or beautiful & sweet”.
I will explain how those dangerous bombs can be reflections of some character(s) later. You must be surprised for sure. But you can guess the answer in the comment below.
2) – Not in the mood.
This is the second choice that we can choose. If we look at their conversation as the story level only, Cloud is not in the mood to drink. But after I analyzed his answer as the different perspective, I see how this game moves Cloud’s answer away and shows “if” he is in the mood, then maybe… (that what is maybe… is… left in our imagination) smoothly with Tifa’s friendly personality… good work, SE or some people behind her shadow.
For me, I think the first choice is better because it shares the two concepts of this story.
Finally, Tifa says something meaningful.
After she got the critical hit by Cloud that she asked for it so she needs to escape from that position, huhuhuhu (or I am the one who took the critical mental healing), she activates that game cabinet to join the meeting. So do you remember her word while she is going to leave?
At the story level, she would tell Cloud to enjoy the drink she made. But on the deeper level, I feel that she or some people behind her shadow, tell us to…
And the music of that game cabinet begins inside my head.
…Cloud needs some nutritious food such as pineapple juice and pomegranate juice so he can endure anything that he will face from now on. To sum it up, I can’t decide the hidden answers of those drinks but in my opinion, I think characters might be the reflections of the yellow drink and Cosmo Canyon. I think I don’t need to say which character is the reflection of the first one but the second one is much more difficult to decide. Tifa or Aerith? If I connect the reflection from Jessie and her thoughts to this consideration too, I have my own answer already.
Talk about enjoy and oot, I also enjoy watching her with other beautiful dresses.
The game of the planet is going to come.
The next post might be about “the ancient secrets”. Stay tuned for more updates! ♥
