To talk about Final Fantasy is to take a journey through each of its fascinating stories, characters and actions. It’s discovering new worlds, reliving amazing scenes and, above all, realizing that even enemies can win our hearts. But ask fans of Final Fantasy VII and the mighty presence of sephiroth. However, despite the large number of players who appreciated this proposal, still able to hide all kinds of secrets from us.
We’re not talking about advertising issues, like this campaign that He once embarrassed the Nintendo 64. We are talking about elements that are in the game and have managed to go unnoticed for many years. And it is that although it is true that the number 7 may seem important to us because it’s present in the game or, exactly, in the title, the reality is that it’s coming out a lot more than you might think.
The company played with the number several times and we weren’t aware
The world of Final Fantasy 7, both in the original work and in its remake, is riddled with this number. And the worst part is, while we’re playing, we don’t really realize that connection. Simply because they wrap it up in such a perfect way that we just get carried away by the story and take it naturally. However, be aware that you have seen this number more times than you might think.
The number 7 is more important than you notice
The first time we meet the game, the first 7 are in the title. But from there we have more than one benchmark. Don’t you believe us? Remember Tifa’s bar, this place where we were able to share some pleasant moments with the characters. What’s the name? The seventh heaven, in English “7th Heaven”. In fact, in this, at the start of the game, seven people live in this place: Cloud, Barret, Tifa, Marlene Biggs, Wedge and Jessie.
It may seem like a fluke, but then we have to remember that AVALANCHE is located in sector 7 from Midgar. Beyond these details, if we look at Shinra’s Mansion, exactly in its library, we will see that on its shelves are books carefully placed to form a “VII”. Three shelves with the same number. But the coincidences keep popping up, but below we are going to show you the times when you have seen the angel number 7 and you were not really aware of it.
Sector 7, place of residence of AVALANCHE
Tifa’s bar, known as “The Seventh Heaven”, in English “7th Heaven”
7 people reside on the scene at the start of the game: Cloud, Barret, Tifa, Marlene Biggs, Wedge and Jessie
Inside Shinra’s mansion, in the library, you will see three shelves with books placed to form “VII”
The amusement park, Gold Saucer, has exactly 7 zones
If we go to the old forest we will find 7 treasures
When Tifa is unconscious, it takes exactly 7 days for her to wake up.
The red plane located on the Costa del Sol has a “VII” painted on it
In the first battle we play, Cloud rises to exactly level 7
In Turtle Paradise, if you complete the mission you will receive 7 items
It’s been 7 years since Cloud left Nibelheim
Aeris and Ifalna spent 7 years in captivity
Red XIII warns group Meteor will arrive in 7 days
Even though we have 9 main characters to play with, only 7 of them are really needed.
In the battle arena the player has the option to spin a reel and the best option we can get is called, of course, “Lucky 7”
If our unit manages to reach 7777 HP during a battle, then it will enter an “All Lucky 7s” phase.
If we look at the abilities of the characters, most of them have 7 limits (also called “Limit Breaks”). And if in some cases this number drops to leave room for variations in the limits, if we look at the number of special attacks they will end up giving us 7 characters with 7 limits
In this way, we have before us a game which, although the number 7 turned out to be very important, it is even more so than expected. A seventh part full of secrets that we hope to see a little more in detail with the remake.
