When Finn & Stamp Perform The Fusion! [FF7 Remake Part 1 Analysis]

After Finn and Stamp performed the Fusion, “that form” is so different yet so similar.

They're surprised of something like the magic of Red XIII. (Final Fantasy VII Remake Final Fantasy 7 Remake FF7 Remake FFVII Remake Final Fantasy VII Final Fantasy 7 FF7 FFVII ファイナルファ ンタジーVII リメイク ファイナルファ ンタジー7 リメイク ファイナルファンタジー7 ファイナルファンタジーVII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 Chapter 16 Episode 16 Chapitre 16 Kapitel 16 The Belly of The Beast Shinra Building (神羅ビル))

Finn, Barret’s ally & Stamp, the mascot by Shinra. When both of them become one, they become one strong existence!

Hello, my reader. Welcome to my post about Final Fantasy VII Remake. If you wonder why I think Finn and Stamp can do the Fusion, I will show you the meaning of their merging! Of course, its result. And of course, this post is not a fanfiction, ok?

Before I will start…

Before you will read this post, I strongly recommend you play FF7 Remake, before proceeding.

ps.

  • 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 Japanese & English suck, such, sub.

Now we know if Tifa is someone special of Cloud. (Final Fantasy VII Remake Final Fantasy 7 Remake FF7 Remake FFVII Remake Final Fantasy VII Final Fantasy 7 FF7 FFVII ファイナルファ ンタジーVII リメイク ファイナルファ ンタジー7 リメイク ファイナルファンタジー7 ファイナルファンタジーVII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 Chapter 14 Episode 14 Chapitre 14 Kapitel 14 In Search of Hope Sector 5 (伍番街) Slum, Sector 5 Undercity, Aerith's house)I Spotted People Like Finn, Al, & Nellie! & Barret’s Resolution Is About Cat & Dog?
Previously, I wrote my own experience when I spotted people like Barret Wallace (バレット・ウォーレス)‘s comrades, Finn, Al, and Nellie. Also, the secrets between Aerith and Cloud that I found in Barret’s Resolution, an event in ch14, part 1 of FF7R too.


The post above is the requirement because if you didn’t read this yet, you will be confused about what I am going to share in this post automatically. For example, knowing the reflections of Finn and Barret are very important. Or I should say, if you can read both posts, you can connect the hidden meaning in each scene of Barret’s Resolution, one by one.

So I recommend you to explore the truth behind these two people. Or I should say, I don’t want you to miss the unbelievable truths. Especially, if you like Cloud x Aerith, you should not miss it.

If Barret is the reflection of that girl for real, this image can show something amazing. (Final Fantasy VII Remake Final Fantasy 7 Remake FF7 Remake FFVII Remake Final Fantasy VII Final Fantasy 7 FF7 FFVII ファイナルファ ンタジーVII リメイク ファイナルファ ンタジー7 リメイク ファイナルファンタジー7 ファイナルファンタジーVII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 Chapter 14 Episode 14 Chapitre 14 Kapitel 14 In Search of Hope Sector 5 (伍番街) Slum, Sector 5 Undercity, Aerith's house)

Actually, I planned to write what I found out about Finn (フィン) and Stamp in the post above too but I thought that it would be better to write another post specifically since I found out the person who is like Finn already. Also, there is some interesting info about the mascot, Stamp too. That’s why I decided to write the Fusion between Finn and Stamp here instead. So here, I go!

The Fusion in this case is the metaphor of analyzing what Barret says about one of his companions, Finn in his own Resolution. I will show you the Japanese sub because this sub has some interesting truths between the reflection of Finn. If you do as I suggested, read my previous post, you will know why I believe that Finn’s reflection is Cloud Strife (クラウド ストライフ) or Aerith Gainsborough (エアリス ゲインズブール).

 

I like how bold the big sis, Aerith is. (Final Fantasy VII Remake Final Fantasy 7 Remake FF7 Remake FFVII Remake Final Fantasy VII Final Fantasy 7 FF7 FFVII ファイナルファ ンタジーVII リメイク ファイナルファ ンタジー7 リメイク ファイナルファンタジー7 ファイナルファンタジーVII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 Chapter 9 Episode 9 Chapitre 9 Kapitel 9 Budding Bodyguard Sector 6 (六番街) Slum, Sector 6 Undercity, Green Park)

Since I believe that one of them might be the reflection of Finn because of my own analyzing about Al, and Nellie that I interpreted in the previous post that they are reflections of Aerith, and Tifa Lockhart (ティファ ロックハート). And if another assumption of mine about Barret that he can reflect some truths about Aerith is correct too. Then, the Japanese sub. – Barret’s talk about Finn and his painting, Stamp, will become the truth about C or A automatically.

It’s fine if you don’t understand why things are like that. I will show you why I think like this with Jap sub. ⇓

Barret: アバランチによ (によ = Resemble/Be similar)
TL: Resembles Avalanche.

If Barret in this case is Aerith because Barret is her reflection too, I will replace Aerith and see how things will be. ⇓

[Aerith]
アバランチによ (によ = Resemble/Be similar)
TL: Resembles Avalanche.

You would notice that I changed Barret to Aerith so you will see the image easier. It’s not like she says something like Barret but imagining that Aerith is sharing this info is the better idea.

After I reviewed about Barret so many times, I remember that Barret ever announced himself in ch17 – Deliverance from Chaos that he is ⇓

Another cool & funny moment of Barret and friends (Final Fantasy VII Remake Final Fantasy 7 Remake FF7 Remake FFVII Remake Final Fantasy VII Final Fantasy 7 FF7 FFVII ファイナルファ ンタジーVII リメイク ファイナルファ ンタジー7 リメイク ファイナルファンタジー7 ファイナルファンタジーVII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 Chapter 17 Episode 17 Chapitre 17 Kapitel 17 Deliverance From Chaos Midgar (ミッドガル), Shinra Building (神羅ビル), Entrance)

Of course if you see this scene as the story level, you might doubt why I am overthinking about this since he is a member of this group but now I’m talking about another level that is not the story layer but something like metaphor or symbol. After I reviewed this game over and over, I believe that even Avalanche and Barret himself become metaphors for the flower girl. So I’m suspecting that Avalanche is the reflection of Aerith too (Barret = Avalanche = Aerith).

Let’s see the next jap sub.

フィンっていう (ていう = Say)悪ガキ ( The unruly/naughty kid/boy/brat)がいて (いて = There)な
TL: Say, there is a unruly boy.

Is it just me or this clothes is suitable for Cloud Strife the most? (Final Fantasy VII Remake Final Fantasy 7 Remake FF7 Remake FFVII Remake Final Fantasy VII Final Fantasy 7 FF7 FFVII ファイナルファ ンタジーVII リメイク ファイナルファ ンタジー7 リメイク ファイナルファンタジー7 ファイナルファンタジーVII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 Chapter 8 Episode 8 Chapitre 8 Kapitel 8 Budding Bodyguard Sector 6 (六番街) Slum, Sector 6 Undercity, Wall Market ウォールマーケット), Honeybee Inn 蜜蜂の館))

Cloud Strife, who will not be bounded by any rules… or not?

At this point, since this Jap is talking about a boy, I am imagining Cloud more than Aerith. Of course, if you are imagining things as the story level, you will understand that Barret is talking about Finn, the stubborn brat. However, what I am analyzing right now is not about that level but the deeper level.

[Aerith]
何を(what)まかせても(Even if entrust it/Even if leave it/Even if leave
Even if leave/entrust anything/everything/it

If my assumption [Barret ⇒ Aerith] is correct, you will see how this quote above can show us the future truth of someone.

[Aerith]
すぐに (outright/instantly/instantaneously/in a flash)サボ (Sabo/Savo/sabotage/slack off/skip)ろうとする(try to)ヤシさ( It is that guy)
TL: It’s that guy who tries to skip/sabotage in a flash.

If you see this as the story level, you will see how Finn is as Barret says. But in the deeper level of truth, you would notice that I chose to interpret the meaning of サボ as “skip or sabotage” and すぐに as “in a flash” to describe what Cloud or Aerith will do as much as I can and this TL must be consistent with 何をまかせても too. So I suspect that he will not slack off like people who skip the class or something but to do whatever s/he wishes. Even the meaning of サボ as “sabotage” in this case, doesn’t mean something negative as its direct meaning but I suspect that this meaning would be like “blast” “kaboom” or “something unexpected” or etc… Interesting.

…Come to think of it, I am not sure if the stubbornness describes Cloud or Aerith since I saw they are stubborn or disagree when they don’t like some idea of other people, not like I complain though. ^ ^)/ Also they even did something like the blast so many times in Part 1.

Since I don’t know if the two quotes above are telling us about Cloud or Aerith, I just reviewed by assuming that Barret is explaining the future of Cloud and the future of Aerith. After I did that, I couldn’t judge who is the correct answer since I see C or A make sense for me. Well, I will show you my experiments.

[Aerith]
何を(what)まかせても(Even if entrust it/Even if leave it/Even if leave
Even if leave/entrust anything/everything/it

すぐに (outright/instantly/instantaneously/in a flash)サボ (Sabo/Savo/sabotage/slack off/skip)ろうとする(try to)ヤシさ( It is that guy)
TL: It’s that guy who tries to skip in a flash.

If Finn’s story is about Cloud.

If Cloud is the correct answer, the quote above might be explaining the future story about Aerith and Cloud, how someone (who I am not sure if this is Cloud or Aerith) will leave everything or leave the other but this unruly boy will try to sabo in a flash.

I am gonna cross my fingers to wish Cloud Strife's declaration comes true.

If Finn’s story is about Aerith.

If Aerith is the correct answer, the quote above might be explaining her own future story, the unruly boy girl who will leave everything (or Cloud) you know what I mean but this girl will try to skip/sabo in a flash latterly.

This blast is the symbol of "the real blast" between main characters. (Final Fantasy VII Remake Final Fantasy 7 Remake FF7 Remake FFVII Remake Final Fantasy VII Final Fantasy 7 FF7 FFVII ファイナルファ ンタジーVII リメイク ファイナルファ ンタジー7 リメイク ファイナルファンタジー7 ファイナルファンタジーVII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 Chapter 1 Episode 1 Chapitre 1 Kapitel 1 The Destruction of Mako Reactor 1 Sector 1 (壱番街))

Interesting, isn’t it? How the deeper layer that is not the story level can make me keep imagining. Let’s see the next quote. ⇓

ただ(just/only/merely/but/simply/alone/entirely/exclusively/solely) 絵を描く(paint a picture)のだけは(just/only)好きで (like/love/favorite/prefer/talkative/mischievous)よ
TL: Simply, just like describe/draw a painting/picture.

In the story level, Barret’s word made me think that Finn likes painting but in the deeper level that I’m searching the hidden truths about Cloud or Aerith, I feel that the quote above might suggest us to describe/draw that I think it’s like “imagining”, imagining a picture. The question is [what is that picture?] The answer would be in the quote below. ⇓

トンネル(tunnel)に(in)スタンプ(Stamp)の絵(絵=painting/drawing/picture)があった(あった = There it is/There it was)ろ?
TL: Is there the picture of the stamp in the tunnel?

あれを(That)描いた (draw/paint)のか(of this/or)フィンさ
TL: That painting of this Finn/or Finn, isn’t it?/It is this Finn whether you drew that, isn’t it?

What to do if the painting is the reflection of the certain boy? (Final Fantasy VII Remake Final Fantasy 7 Remake FF7 Remake FFVII Remake Final Fantasy VII Final Fantasy 7 FF7 FFVII ファイナルファ ンタジーVII リメイク ファイナルファ ンタジー7 リメイク ファイナルファンタジー7 ファイナルファンタジーVII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 Chapter 5 Episode 5 Chapitre 5 Kapitel 5 Budding Bodyguard Midgar (ミッドガル), Corkscrew Tunnel (螺旅トンネル))The quote above and Stamp painting in ch5 – Dogged Pursuit would make you imagine that Finn drew that picture, that is true. But that is the story level. At the deeper layer, I will not focus on that but to connect imagining a picture and those two candidates. Imagining that dog painting in that Tunnel can help us see the connection of these factors but I need to take this symbol and Jap sub to interpret the different meanings from the story.

And the last quote is kind of complex to TL but even so, I still believe the connection of painting or Stamp and Finn as the symbols that point at the concept of just one identity that can be Cloud or Aerith. This connection and the concept of one person by Barret, surprised me more because it can connect with my previous post and even Aerith’s Resolution (at least in Eng sub.) automatically.

Then, who is the reflection of Finn?

For this question, I have my own personal answer but to confirm this, I think TLing Stamp’s story (Japanese sub) that Barret tells Cloud and Tifa during Chapter 5 [Dogged Pursuit], would get more clues… maybe Chapter 1 that Barret also talks about Stamp to Cloud too.

Is Barret referring this EX-SOLDIER or his soldier buddy? (Final Fantasy VII Remake Final Fantasy 7 Remake FF7 Remake FFVII Remake Final Fantasy VII Final Fantasy 7 FF7 FFVII ファイナルファ ンタジーVII リメイク ファイナルファ ンタジー7 リメイク ファイナルファンタジー7 ファイナルファンタジーVII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 Chapter 1 Episode 1 Chapitre 1 Kapitel 1 The Destruction of Mako Reactor 1 Sector 1 (壱番街), Mako Reactor 1 (壱番魔晄炉))

After I watched their talk a bit, it is easy to judge who is the reflection of Stamp but if I didn’t look Jap sub yet, I will not believe in this easy clue by Barret so easily because I fell the traps many times while interpreting this game. This needs hard work, it is fun to try guessing them though. By the way, it is interesting that Barret who is the reflection of Aerith is the one who keeps talking about this dog stamp in chapters for some reason.

A certain flower girl will feel better after talking with the same person someday. (Final Fantasy VII Remake Final Fantasy 7 Remake FF7 Remake FFVII Remake Final Fantasy VII Final Fantasy 7 FF7 FFVII ファイナルファ ンタジーVII リメイク ファイナルファ ンタジー7 リメイク ファイナルファンタジー7 ファイナルファンタジーVII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 Chapter 14 Episode 14 Chapitre 14 Kapitel 14 In Search of Hope Sector 5 (伍番街) Slum, Sector 5 Undercity, Aerith's house)Well, after I analyzed this issue, I re-watched Barret’s Resolution again with my own assumption [he is the reflection of Aerith], when he says that he feels better/refreshed [Eng/Jap subs] after talking with Cloud, I replaced Barret with Aerith automatically in my mind, made me imagine their future orderly. The future when she will feel wonderfully refreshed after “talked” with someone you know who. If we see this as the story level, we understand why Barret feels better after talking with the other but right now I’m talking about the deeper level that hides the hidden truth. For now let me drink the happiness while I’m imagining that future between C and A. …Sleep like a dog, phi, huh? I hope she will find the supreme happiness.

The truth is the closeness between Cloud & Barret will become the reflection of Cloud & his girl.

I don’t know if the keyword [talk] means its direct or indirect meaning since I analyzed things with many metaphors and symbols so I am looking forward to see how #Clerith will “talk”. lol And I’m planning to share more clues about this issue to you someday.

Since I believe that Barreto is the reflection of the certain flower girl, while I was looking at him, I noticed that there are many times that the expressions of these two are similar for some reason, especially when he removes his glasses so I could see his pretty eyes and also his worrying expression respectively. For example, when he is so worried about his daughter, Marlene Wallace (マリン ウォーレス) and Elmyra Gainsborough (エルミナ ゲインズブール), Aerith’s mother, says where she is resting, during Chapter 13 [A Broken World].

What Aerith is seeing might be not what people understand. (Final Fantasy VII Remake Final Fantasy 7 Remake FF7 Remake FFVII Remake Final Fantasy VII Final Fantasy 7 FF7 FFVII ファイナルファ ンタジーVII リメイク ファイナルファ ンタジー7 リメイク ファイナルファンタジー7 ファイナルファンタジーVII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 รีเมค ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี VII ไฟนอลแฟนตาซี 7 Chapter 2 Episode 2 Chapitre 2 Kapitel 2 The Fateful Encounters Sector 8 (八番街) Business District)

 

The reason I think Barret is similar to Aerith because there are more characters who I noticed that they can be reflections of Aerith too. Since there are characters who are similar to Aerith, I conclude that the arrows point at this local florist. I hope I will write about them someday. And you can guess who in the comment below. I will not judge your answer because it’s fun to imagine.

 

So this is the meaning of the blog title of this post, Fusion of Finn and Stamp. I’m looking forward to seeing who is this unruly person, how s/he will act, and the meaning of 何をまかせても and your opinion about this.

 

The game of the planet is coming!

 

The sign Aerith's making herself sad.

End.

 

And the next post would be about Cloud, Aerith, and Tifa as usual but with a different form as always. “Those two” are strange. Stay tuned for more updates!
