* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': Cloud Strife]] would often [[HairFlip flip]] his [[GoingThroughTheMotions hair]] whenever he did or said something cool or wanted to show off. It became such an iconic gesture that it even carried over to 3D during his appearences in [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI the first Kingdom Hearts]] and [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories RE:Chain of Memories]] (To the point where, in RE:COM, he even does it after he is [[SummonMagic summoned in battle]])

** Squall adjusts his weight. A lot. Standing still on the World Map lets you watch him constantly adjusting his standing position. He also faceplams. A lot.
** Selphie tends to dance in place, and will occasionally pull up one leg, then the other, like she's checking the bottom of her shoes for dog shit.

** As in most other games, all of the characters have a defined pose they do when initiating/ending a fight which shows of their individuality. Squall will rest his Gunblade on his shoulder and swing it a couple of times and cooly turn his back against the opponent. Zell warms up before a fight and loudly celebrates shaking his fists in the air after winning. Quistis, being the elegant, collected one, lashes with her whip going into a fray and afterwards stretches and relaxes. Selphie, the spirited and spunky girl, throws her arms in the air before resting her Nunchaku on her shoulders and doing a sassy pose. Irvine, in keeping with his cool sniper façade, twirls his rifle around and cockily salutes with his hat, whereas Rinoa, the high-class rebel girl who is new to fighting, seems a bit nervous and sighs in relief then the battle is over. Pretty much every action each character does, like casting a spell or even sitting, will be animated in a particular way to showcase their personality.

lot. He enters battle with his Gunblade resting over his shoulder and ends it by doing the same. Later on, in Dissidia, this becomes his default stance. As a verbal tic, "Whatever" and "..." comprise a sizable portion of his "dialogue". Finally, when Squall is in a critical situation such as facing a tough decision, he tends to throw his arm horizontally across his face VERY dramatically.
** Selphie tilts her head to the side several times, tends to dance in place, pumps her fist in the air and will occasionally pull up one leg, then the other, like she's checking the bottom of her shoes shoes. She will also throw her arms down to her sides when arguing, and trust her to immediately lay down on the nearest bed available, spreading her arms wide like she owns the place.
** Rinoa has her trademark "Point towards the sky" pose. She also will brush her hair off her forehead repeatedly and tends to squat and almost hug her legs when feeling vulnerable. She's prone to "cute" gestures, such as dangling her feet when she sits.
** Zell shadowboxes. Like, a LOT, whenever he grows bored, which drives Seifer up the wall. He also punches the ground at times (which is actually one of his Limit Break finisher moves) and most of his gestures are very exaggerated to showcase his loud persona.
** Irvine, who tries hard to look like a cool, detached cowboy-sniper, will typically tend to strike cool poses, touch his hat and take aim at things with an imaginary pistol. He also sways his hands around, similar to Jack Sparrow.
** Quistis' gestures showcase her smart-elegant characterization. She will only laugh when putting her hand up to her face to cover he mouth,
for dog shit.example, and when she sits, she'll do it like her legs are glued together, the way a "proper lady" in Japanese culture would.
** Seifer, the cocky jerk anti-villain, will wave his Gunblade around at the first opportunity he gets and is always pointing at people with it. We're talking cutscenes, not battle here, mind you.
** Even characters who don't get as much screen time have them. Laguna has a limp that manifests itself only when nervous (usually around the object of his affections) and rubs the back of his head a lot, Kiros, a cool, reserved guy will cross his arms over his chest and Ward will wave his hand in front of his face to indicate something it's a bad idea, a character trait he shares with Raijin. His partner, Fujin, only speaks in one-word sentences, despite showing on occasion that she's capable of speaking normally. She'll also throw her hand to the side a lot.
