I've had a thing for Aeris since sometime in the late 90s.

Worker 8 had a memorable introduction.

Mustadio: Give a better order!

True that. I always found Tifa enticing, but Aeris/Aerith was always more my speed. She's gentle, kind, and optimistic in spite of all life has thrown at her in the slums. She's no wide-eyed, naive princess, nor is she a damsel-in-distress. She keeps her chin up despite all that has happened to her and keeps marching to her own tune. Plus, the whole florist thing is just so damn charming. She is truly a gem amongst the slums of Midgar.

I haven't played FF7R, and I hear she has a little more umph (such as saying "shit" at some point). Not sure how she compares to her FF7 counterpart, but I imagine she isn't that far off.

I'd say, I'll probably be a bit contrarian here and say I would prefer Tifa over Aerith. Though it's an interesting comparison to make nonetheless, considering how both are meant to be foils/opposites.

You could say that she is returning to form. She was always meant to have that tough, spirited side that would show itself through that gentle outward appearance she has. The Compilation, however, mostly strayed from that, making her a straight play instead of a subversion. It was the same to some extent with Tifa as well, who in her case it was the opposite direction.

The worst we got in the original FF7 was "#@?!" or "This guy are sick" depending on your perspective.

AriTifa is a good option. Have I mentioned that the requisite 20 times yet?

I've always liked Aeris more than Tifa. I just like that she knows a lot of healing magic and rods are pretty cool. I never really paid any attention to Tifa. It's been a long while since I played the original Final Fantasy VII though so I might've lost some touch. Aeris was always my favorite and I would even print out fanart of her and display it lol. Um. Out of all the females I'm partial to Yuffie though. I thought it was pretty cool how you first meet her and I liked what they were going for a thief-ninja(?) and I really liked how she uses a giant shuriken. Her whole greedy character-personality kinda reminds me of Lemina from LUNAR 2: Eternal Blue Complete, lol, haha. I just love money/materia-hungry characters like that.

I really need to play FFVII again before I play the FFVII: Remake and pay more attention to Tifa, though.

Haha, I loved Worker 8 and Mustadio! Out of everyone I thought Meliadoul was the most mysterious and has the most mystique. I was always pretty fond of both Rafa and Malak too also. Out of everyone my favorite was Reis though I don't know why I just like her!
