Fighting FF7’s Sephiroth Is Way Harder In Kingdom Hearts

I was out with friends recently and during the conversation that age-old topic of games came up that brought us to the point where the controllers were thrown away. thunder Pro Riddles doing the same thing In a big tournament last year. Discussed over drinks about the usual suspects: such as Fromsoft games dark Souls And Sekiro: Shadows Die Twiceas well as Cupid, Ninja Gaiden, super meat boy– All the games that made me very angry once or twice during my time with them. However, nothing has incited Gamer Rage™ in me as much as Kingdom Hearts Especially since Sephiroth is a pretty mean person in that game. So much so that, I have to openly admit, the guy made me break the controller in half.

This is not the first time I have expressed my complaints about Sephiroth 2002 action-rpg Kingdom Hearts, final fantasy viiThe silver-haired prince of evil is rarely a pushover in any incarnation, but here, he's a genuine masterpiece. At least here he's an optional boss, so you can avoid the hair-pulling, controller-breaking frustration if you want.

But if you really want to test your skills and stats against this challenge, take part in all the bouts in the Olympus Coliseum, a series of rounds designed to test your strength against the game's most dangerous villains. , and you will eventually reach platinum match. , Once you get inside, a light beam falls down from the magenta colored sky. “Oh, who could it be?” I was amazed when I first played this game as a teenager. You see the black wings, the silver hair, the first class soldier's outfit. “Oh crap, it's Sephiroth,” I said. Well, no big deal. I had crushed the other five cups in the Olympus Coliseum. I felt like I was so worthless. “No problem,” I said Iconic One-Winged Angel Theme Kicked in. “I got this.”

Dear reader, I did No have this.

The start of the match is quite painful but it is not particularly difficult in the beginning. Of course, Sephiroth doesn't hesitate on most of Sora's Keyblade swipes. However, there are some instances in which you can block his attacks. However, none of this matters, as Sephiroth can easily reduce Sora's life level to mere pixels in two or three hits. This is what started to bother me about the fight: Sephiroth is OP. I mean, I get it. That's in the OP too final fantasy vii, so it makes sense that Square Enix continues its collaboration with Disney. But what makes it unfair is that it is a lone fight against him. Yes, while the other five cups allow you to bring Donald and Goofy, the platinum match is 1v1 between our big shoe boy And the silver-haired threat. that's harsh.

Sephiroth's second phase makes the competition even more difficult. If you get him to about half health, he will become critical. Instead of walking around the arena, he begins to run and, in some cases, even fly and teleport around the ring. Their magic becomes stronger and lasts longer on stage. He attacks more often and attacks so recklessly that his Masamune occupies the entire length of the field. He summons meteors that oscillate around him and circle that house in Sora. In short, Sephiroth, at this point during the match, really wants to bury you. faster!

So, I went into the platinum match at the maximum level 100 in the game. As soon as I started the fight, my confidence skyrocketed because I was doing good damage. I was taken by surprise when I suddenly died after sinking into it for several minutes. “Fuck it, I'm trying again,” I said, attempting to be more aggressive on my second attempt while also monitoring my health more closely. It didn't matter because I died. again. “Oh my God,” I said, restarting the match for the third and fourth time.

On about my tenth attempt to train Sephiroth, I found him at less than 10 percent health. Despite running out of health and supplies to refill my mana, victory was still in front of me. In a last ditch effort, I flew into Sephiroth's meteor storm, thinking I could silently dodge all the whirling rocks floating around him. I did so, but as soon as I pressed the attack button, I heard Sora's death scream as a stupid rock ball hit me in the face. That was the moment when, in a moment of extreme anger, I blasted the controller out of my hand and watched as its cheap plastic shattered into a million pieces.

thankfully, it was just A Mad Catz PS2 ControllerOne of those bulky wired gamepads that cost $20 or more at Game Crazy (rest in peace, Sephiroth made me sweat; There was no way I was going to sacrifice Sony's more expensive DualShock 2 late grandmotherHowever, I was not proud of my anger. I had to buy a new controller with the money I earned doing household chores and working around the neighborhood because, as my grandmother told me, “I don't spend my money on anger.” Sorry to disappoint you, Grandma. Sephiroth is just an ass. You don't get it if you don't fight it Kingdom Hearts,

I haven't played final fantasy vii rebirth As yet. (captured with rise of ronin and now, dragon's dogma 2.) So, it's possible that Sephiroth is just as stupid in there as he is in Kingdom Hearts, However, I finished final fantasy vii remake And defeated him in his very first attempt. I thought it was very easy for him there (and in) Kingdom Hearts II), so I suspect he'll be easy to beat in the 2024 follow-up as well. I wish he wasn't so harsh Kingdom Hearts, because his presence here still haunts me two decades later. And that broken Mad Catz controller is a memory I'll never let go.

Fuck you Sephiroth. (Although, I still love him.)
