** An additional bit of Foreshadowing comes when you're on the airship and Yuffie is suffering from motion sickness. Cloud advises her on how to deal with it, implying that he used to cope with motion sickness too. [[spoiler: Think back to the scene on the train. "Cloud" isn't suffering any motion sickness, but the faceless grunt is.]]

*** As a good example of [[Gameplay and Story Integration]], Flashback!Cloud has almost the exact same stats as the Shinra guards you first fight at the beginning of the game.

* Consider Final Fantasy 7 from Aerith's perspective. Her boyfriend disappears and is almost certainly dead. Years later, some random stranger cosplaying as him crashes through her ceiling. This guy has patterned his entire life on Zack and is obviously pretending to be him (to the point of impersonating a SOLDIER 1st Class.) Aerith would know immediately that he's a fake - she's been on the run from Shinra for a while, and it's not like there are that many SOLDIER 1st Class out there. So what's the logical conclusion from her perspective? *She suspects Cloud has murdered her boyfriend and stolen his life.* After all, from her perspective Cloud is a violent, mentally unbalanced terrorist wearing her boyfriend's worn, tattered clothes and constantly impersonating him (badly.) The logical assumption is that Cloud was connected to Zack's death. This is why she travels with him. If you do the Golden Saucer date with her, the reason she's there isn't because she feels anything for Cloud, it's because she's trying to (discretely) probe for information on Zack's death. But she can't be too obvious, because for all she knows Cloud is a serial killer, and if he catches on that she's connected to Zack, he'll kill her, too.

* The identity of the spy was in fact hinted at from the moment they joined. [[spoiler: After all, what materia does Cait Sith join with? Manipulate.]]

* When Shinra opts to drop the Sector 7 plate onto the slums, it seems like overkill to take out an OddlySmallOrganization, and demonstrates just what a ruthless pack of immoral bastards most of the higher-ups are. And then we remember that it happened not long after Cloud presented himself to the president as an ex-SOLDIER. ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'' showed that [=SOLDIERs=] are so {{Badass}} that they needed to send a small army in just to deal with one who had gone rogue. As far as Shinra is concerned, AVALANCHE had crossed the GodzillaThreshold by taking in a rogue SOLDIER.

* This might just be FauxSymbolism, but Cloud's sword is outright stated to be larger than he is. Perhaps it's a metaphor for [[spoiler: the fact that he took up the tough persona of a SOLDIER, but he couldn't live up to it. He's trying to bite off more than he can chew.]]

*** We know exactly when she died. When the whole town is on fire, Cloud goes into his mother's house, then comes out in silent rage and grief. That makes it pretty clear. I'm sure she did have something to say about her kid being blamed, but what's she going to do? She doesn't control the town. And he doesn't say or think about her after he pulls himself together because, what ''would'' he say about her? She's still dead, and her death wasn't really a focal point for his memory break.
