** if you take the theory that [[spoiler: Gaia is actually the future of Spira from ffx as fact, that means that the poor Cetra had just spent 1000 years in a cycle of suicidal sacrifice and killed the EldritchAbomination causing it, then were under threat by ANOTHER EldritchAbomination weapon controlled by a mad zombie/ghost, who knows how long after that a meteor crashed into their planet bringing ANOTHER EldritchAbomination in the form of Jenova]] poor Cetra can't catch a break...

** Most of this is negated by her abilities as an Ancient, like her ability to speak to the Planet and the dead, but in a way it can be even worse. Aerith knows Zach is dead, she knows something bad happened to him and the only direct source of information on what happened is hideously emotionally and mentally shattered to the point of adopting her dead boyfriend's behaviours and blocking out his real personality. This means she knows not only was her boyfriend killed but whatever went down was horrifically bad.

** 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.
