** Part of the reason Cloud was captured so long was that his would-be rescuers didn't trust each other and couldn't communicate effectively. It takes a [[spoiler: ContrivedCoincidence and EleventhHourRanger to get them moving]].

* AHouseDivided: Cloud's rescue team has a chronic inability to work together. Genesis doesn't respect Zack's advice, the two stalled for so long because they were suspicious of Sephiroth, Angeal despite knowing more than most only communicates in CrypticConversation and Kunsel runs off into leads without bothering to tell anyone. No wonder they needed a [[spoiler: ContrivedConcidence and an ElevethHourRanger to get them moving]].

** As it's about the same time period, most of the major characters in Crisis Core have significant roles. The big exception is Cissnei who only appears in one brief scene.

Added DiffLines:
* {{Flanderization:}} A bit though the author does keep most of the personalities consistent. ** Zack is prone to recklessness and not thinking things through. This is present in Crisis Core but Zack could think strategically, displays plenty of HiddenDepths and matures over the course of the game. This is toned down so Zack can serve as a better foil to the other Soldiers. ** Young!Cloud acts more childlike than his 15 years in Crisis Core. The Mini jokes also don't make sense since Young!Cloud might look younger he's not significantly shorter than FFVII Cloud. The Fifth Act occurs about a year before Crisis Core which shouldn't make that much of a difference.

* InterserviceRivalry: As in canon, all of the departments in ShinRa are at odds, struggling for power and funding. Cloud gets a glimpse of this when Lazard tries to recruit him to help plot against ShinRa. ** This all comes to a head when Cloud is kidnapped. Lazard authorized the kidnapping for Hollander, his mole in the Science Department. However, he's outmaneuvered by Hojo who gains the approval of the President who orders the Turks and parts of the regular troops to support him. Meanwhile, the First Class solders are about to mutiny for their lost friends. Even within departments and factions there is conflict as each individual is struggling between their loyalties to ShinRa, their department and their friends. The GambitPileup was this close to escalating into a civil war.
