Who's excited for the Square Enix conference at 6pm today????? You know I am :') I'm p r a y i n g for a Tifa reveal y'all πŸ’€ I was losing my mind in anticipation when they dropped the teaser last night; I felt like my eyes were feasting on the screen but still no sign of her when the FFVII logo appeared… BUT they did drop the release date, which was so unexpected, and the amount of emotional whiplash from last night has me in such a days. Truly, honestly, the best night of my life πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’– Anyhow, here's an old pic of my Tifa from ALA last year as part of my prayer circle for a Tifa reveal hehe. I'll be wearing her to E3 as well so if you're going, I'll see you there πŸ˜„

happy Sunday y'all πŸ’– Some more Tifa selfies because I love and admire her character very much ❀️ Today in the US is Mother's Day, which can be a mixed day for many people. For those who are on good terms with their mothers or mother figures, I hope you cherish this day and every day with your mother. For those that lost their beloved mothers/mother figure, I send my love to you especially on this day. For those that aren't on good terms with their mother/mother figure but want to be, I hope the time comes where that can happen πŸ’–πŸ™πŸ» But if you're like me, and you aren't really on good terms with your mother and it's a lost cause, know that you aren't alone on this holiday, as awkward and weird as it can feel to know that so many others celebrate or remember or hope. I'm right there with you; honestly I decided to post Tifa today because growing up, I looked up to her the way I felt I would look up to a mother πŸ™ˆ I am very drawn to characters I admire because I would like to adopt their admirable traits into my own life – that's a big factor when choosing my cosplays haha. Anyhow, if you've read this, thanks for the time πŸ€— Hope everyone enjoys their Sunday~

Tifa Lockhart is one of the playable characters from Final Fantasy VII. She is Cloud’s childhood friend from Nibelheim, but the two parted ways over the years. However, when the two run into each other again, she recruits him to join AVALANCHE and take the fight to the Shinra Electric Power Company.

Tifa has a deep hatred for Shinra after Sephiroth went berserk and destroyed the town killing Tifa’s father. She uses her bar and restaurant called 7th Heaven as a secret base for AVALANCHE.

She works with Barret Wallace and Cloud to confront Shinra and eventually put them on the hunt for Sephiroth.

As a playable character in Final Fantasy VII, Tifa is a trained martial artist and uses her skills to help the party. She primarily wields claws and glove weapons. Her ultimate weapon called Premium Heart allows her to deal more damage depending on how full her Limit gauge is. Tifa can also become the party leader in Final Fantasy VII replacing Cloud at some points. She can also participate in the snowboarding and Chocobo racing minigames.

Along with Final Fantasy VII, Tifa has appeared in Dissidia, Opera Omnia, Theatrhythm, Record Keeper, and Brave Exvius. She has also appeared in Kingdom Hearts, Puzzle & Dragons, Itadaki Street, and Ehreiz: God Bless the Ring.

Ayumi Ito is the primary voice actress for Tifa. She has also been voiced by Yōko Asada and Yūko Minaguchi. Rachael Liegh Cook voiced Tifa in the English dub of Final Fantasy VII. Britt Baron voices Tifa in the Final Fantasy VII Remake.

Tifa was originaly designed by Tetsuya Nomura.

Tifa also had her own theme song titled “Tifa’s Theme.” The song plays during Tifa’s flashback of Cloud’s promise and as background music in the 7th Heaven bar.
