** The only thing that's NightmareRetardant about this is that Gi Natak is ''the'' easiest boss if the entire game if you have an X Potion (like the one you could pick up earlier in that very dungeon) to throw at him. If he takes one, he goes down instantly.

** Then again, Sephiroth wasn't a giant seven-winged monstrosity back in Crisis Core. Indeed, all the planet-shattering may not have been literal, but who's to say that his final form didn't boost his signature attack to ungodly levels regardless?

After all he's essentially a god now, so if he hadn't been killed in this fight, he'd have the power to destroy whatever he pleased a la [[FinalFantasyVI Kefka]].

* Sephiroth. Every single time he showed up, something horrible happened, like the deaths of civilians, Cloud having his massive breakdown, Aerith's death, and the infamous scene of that evil ''smile'' as he burned Nibelheim to the ground. When he showed up in that game, you ''knew'' something horrible was going to happen.
** One of the worst bits has to be in the Temple of Ancients, just before he attacks Tseng. You're having some sort of vision of the past, seeing the Turks search the temple, and then Sephiroth shows up, and he looks straight at you. You're not sure if he's just able to see Cloud & co., or if he can actually see you playing the game.

** Seriously, the Gelnika itself deserves a proper mention. All of the monsters are mini-cosmic horrors, one of which vaguely resembles a half-decayed dog head which attacks you with its giant, lolling TONGUE. Another monster which looks like a mass of internal organs attacks you with [[FridgeHorror "creepy touch" which gives you "sadness."]]

The whole place could break open and flood at any moment, and its appearance overall gives the feel of a derelict alien ship crash. Add in the enemies here and it comes off like something out of the [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Alien]] franchise. The only thing that helps is the background music.

*** On a related note, the scene a little while before this, when Sephiroth and Cloud (really Zack) infiltrate the reactor to find out what's wrong with it. Cloud comes upon Sephiroth contemplating one of the energy pods, and eventually after a conversation where it's clear Sephiroth is already starting to get a hint of the truth about himself (and cracking over it), he gestures to Cloud to look inside...to receive a horrifying image of the once-human (a former SOLDIER) that has been exposed to much higher amounts of Mako energy. Cloud innocently helps set Sephiroth on his path when he asks him (after Sephiroth talks about the different results from different exposures to Mako) how he's different from other [=SOLDIERs=]. Cue Sephiroth breaking down as he realizes he too is a monster...and then the scene ends with [[{{Symbolism}} one of the pods breaking open]] to spill its (presumably) dying experiments out on the floor... As a coda to this, keep in mind it was actually Zack witnessing this. Zack, who actually ''was'' a member of SOLDIER, and was likely having similarly terrifying thoughts here of what the Mako energy might have done to ''him''. And then we eventually learn that after the destruction of Nibelheim, both he and Cloud were held prisoner under the mansion to be further experimented on by Hojo. They manage to escape thank goodness, [[FromBadToWorse but]]...

* The scene where the team 'escapes' from the cell block is still terrifying. You fall asleep in your cell, only to wake up later and find the cell door mysteriously open. You look outside and find the guard has been horribly murdered. You get your friends out of their cells and you see that ''everyone'' on that floor is dead. And the pod holding Jenova has been burst open, leaving a huge bloody trail up the elevator. You follow it, trailing this massive blood smear up multiple levels past scores of dead employees while the creepiest music ''ever'' plays. Not to mention that there is no victory theme, when you win a battle..... All that's there is that frigging creepy music. And it ends with the Big Bad up until this point slumped over, dead, a sword in his back. Then you get introduced to the REAL Big Bad. The fact that you don't actually see Sephiroth yet & are just working off of this, coupled with Cloud's obvious mix of fear, hatred, & reverence further increases his creepiness.
