* ImprobableAimingSkills:
** Yazoo, who shoots Cloud's sunglasses off his face at point blank range and gives him only a tiny cut on the forehead, though it's more due to Cloud's ability to [[MadeOfIron shrug off a bullet to the forehead]].
** Ironically, for a movie so bent on RuleOfCool, this is [[RealityIsUnrealistic entirely possible]]. ''Squama frontalis'', a part of the frontal cranial bone that forms the forehead itself, is one of the (if not ''the'') toughest bones in the human body[[note]]Also the reason headbutts are effective[[/note]]. In some people it may reach a full inch or more in thickness, and thus is entirely able to stop at least a handgun bullet. Of course, the force of the impact would still create a shockwave that would pulverize the brain behind it. Surviving without skull penetration? Depending on the angle, possible. Surviving without at least some brain injury? Extremely unlikely. Cloud's brain is MadeOfIron too.

* TheReveal: In all of the promotional material for ''Advent Children'' (including the {{Playstation 3}} [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thsnDqQu0mQ technical demo]] that remade the ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' opening with the new character designs), no shots of Aerith showed her whole face. Even in the actual film, the first unobscured shot of her face is [[spoiler:at the very end when her spirit turns to look back at Cloud before going away with Zack]]. Given, her face has become one of gaming's most famous ones, and if the modelers screwed it up...

''Advent Children'' served as a big turn-around for Creator/SquareEnix (specifically, the Square half) after ''Anime/FinalFantasyTheSpiritsWithin'' flopped; it proved Square can make a movie that's at least watchable. ''Advent Children'' became a definite LoveItOrHateIt entry in the franchise (like so many before it), but the biggest complaint for both fans and non-fans revolved around [[MindScrew the hard-to-follow storyline]] (even with WordOfGod present to help clear things up).

Seen when he [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=divmUjpYyy0 fought Kadaj and his gang]] in the Forgotten City, and later while pursuing them on the highway.

* ItOnlyWorksOnce: Cloud tries to repeat the ending of ''Final Fantasy VII'' and [[spoiler: kill Sephiroth with omnislash, but it becomes immediately apparent that Sephiroth was ready this time. Instead it's Sephiroth who makes a repeat performance by skewering Cloud through the stomach like he did during their skirmish in Nibelheim when Cloud goes in for the final slash. Sephiroth even takes the time to mock him for it.]]

* BlockingStopsAllDamage: The first thing [[spoiler:Sephiroth]] does is block Cloud's swing so dead he and his BFS suspend in midair for awhile. More easily justified than most, as his strength is so much higher that blocking is almost a formality.
** It should be noted that the force of Cloud's blow was enough to crush the metal pipe [[spoiler:Sephiroth]] was standing on, but of course does nothing to [[spoiler:Sephiroth]] himself.

** Cloud gets the most of them; he uses all his [[LimitBreak Limit Breaks]] from the original game save for Cross Slash and Meteorain. Easily distinguishable for the blue aura surrounding Cloud when he's about to pull one off.
*** He uses Blade Beam with the main blade from his First Tsurugi against Loz, to cut through the shockwave coming to him on their first fight at the Forgotten Capital.

* TalkingIsAFreeAction: In ''Complete'', Cloud really had a lot of time to [[spoiler:talk with Zack while Sephiroth was approaching from the sky]]. Sephiroth himself indulges in this a fair amount as well.
** [[spoiler:With Cloud, it's at least partially justified; the sequence in which he talks to Zack is probably taking place in his head, where time may be passing by slower. With Sephiroth, he's just really into crazy monologues and everyone seems happy to indulge him.]]

* ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself: Why didn't Yuffie just pass around some materia, have everyone cast one of their maxed-out spells (most of the materia was green), and wipe Kadaj and his ilk off the face of the earth?

None of them save Cloud, who has refused to let go of his grief, is still riding the wave of desperation that let the party match superhumans like Sephiroth blow-for-blow. She even says those ExactWords. Letting him finish the final fight himself not only keeps them out of his way, but enables him to find closure.
** Though Barret does say "He's got 10 minutes", before he presumably would jump in. It just never came to that.
