** You could probably [[InternetBackdraft power several continents]] with the sheer energy spent on debating whether to use "Aeris" or "Aerith". As of recent English releases (such as ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'' and ''KingdomHearts'') and from the very beginning in Japanese publications, "Aerith" has become the canon spelling, but because people ''still'' cling to the "Aeris" spelling from the original US release (and it has yet to be corrected in reprints), even TheOtherWiki uses it - but only when referring to ''Final Fantasy 7'' itself.

Added DiffLines:

* EcoTerrorist: AVALANCHE believe that Shinra Corporation's Mako reactors are harvesting the very soul of the planet to generate electricity. Their solution: launch violent raids on reactor sites, slaughter Shinra's guards, and bomb the reactors.

Added DiffLines:

* PointOfNoReturn: The game's final point of no return is at the very bottom of Northern Cave/The Crater, in a room overlooking a giant fissure and platforms leading into the Lifestream and the core of the Planet. The last screen prior to crossing the POTN is when all the members of AVALANCE regroup and you can take items they picked up. This is a good place to create the last Save Point, but once Cloud enters the Lifestream and goes down the platforms (you'll get a "Do you wish to continue" question before this), the player can no longer go back up and must proceed down two more screens with several random mini-boss like enemies to the platform with the Jenova-SYNTHESIS boss fight, with the final meeting with Sephiroth following.

* {{Ninja}}: Yuffie... [[NarutoTheAbridgedComedySpoofSeriesShow apparently]]. Sure, she throws shuriken, and at one point she skillfully hides in the roof and steals a materia right out of your hand, but other than that, her gimmicks make this out to be more of her InformedAttribute. She can't escape from ropes, her hiding (aside from in the roof) involves things like hiding behind a curtain or inside a pot (fidgeting enough to rattle it around). And she isn't ruthless in the least; she ''could'' have released poison gas and choked you to death while you were stuck in a cage without your magic, but no, she gleefully makes a pun, [[DontExplainTheJoke explains it]], and goes on her merry way.

*** The Spanish translation of KingdomHearts uses ''Aeris'' (for Aerith) and ''Sefirot'' (for Sephiroth), like in the original translation of FFVII, but they are changed to the canon equivalent in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII''. Some Spanish players find those unfortunate because Sefirot is the usual transliteration of the Hebrew word, and as such it was about the only thing the Spanish BlindIdiotTranslation did ''right''.

** There's also Tseng and Aerith. They've known each other since they were kids and Rude flat-out states in Gongaga that Tseng has the hots for her. The stalker part comes from Tseng being assigned by Shinra to keep tabs on Aerith for research purposes. ''CrisisCore'' turns it into something of a reverse BodyguardCrush, as part of Tseng's duties also include keeping her safe (without her knowledge, of course). They seem to be on decent terms in ''Crisis Core'', but then he goes and slaps her across the face during the Sector 7 pillar bombing, but this was before the Turks were {{Flanderiz|ation}}ed from an evil TheMenInBlack-type organization into a NobleDemon QuirkyMinibossSquad in the rest of ''Compilation of VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''.

* UnusableEnemyEquipment: Sephiroth's sword, Masamune, is explicitly stated to be a weapon that only he can use. At one point, the team sees the sword [[spoiler:sticking out of the corpse of President Shinra]], but they don't take it, presumably for this reason. In the ''Anime/{{Last Order|FinalFantasyVII}}'' anime's recreation of the Nibelheim scene, Tifa attempts to use this weapon to slash Sephiroth and fails for this reason, though this was not present in ''CrisisCore'''s version of the same scene.

* TheBattleDidntCount: Usually happens whenever a Shinra exec. is fought, but it's most visible at the end of disc two if you chose to fight Rude, Reno, and Elena rather than just let them walk. [[spoiler:They survive anyway and even go on to HeelFaceTurn in the later installments of the Compilation, so just go ahead and kick their asses for the hell of it, [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential it doesn't really count and you can steal some pretty sweet equipment from them]] that would otherwise be LostForever]].

* LostForever:
** Some of the Enemy Skills. Trine can only be learned from three enemies- two are bosses, the other is a Mook found in an un-revisitable dungeon. Pandora's Box is used only as a [[TakingYouWithMe final attack]] by the ''first'' Zombie Dragon in the ''entire save file''.
** The Ramuh summon must be picked up while you are in the waiting area for the Chocobo races in Corel Prison.
** The entire Bahamut trio of summons can be missed. Bahamut and Neo Bahamut are only found in one-shot locations, while Bahamut Zero is lost if the player didn't get all of the Huge Materia.
** There are so many items in this game that can be permanently missed, there's an [[http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps/197341-final-fantasy-vii/faqs/27656 entire walkthrough on GameFAQs dedicated to them!]]

* NPCRandomEncounterImmunity: Played straight. How did the people of Nibelheim get to the reactor to work? How do hermits (like the smith south of the Gold Saucer and the guy in the cave near Fort Condor) survive? Why do kids near the north pole have snowboards when all the slopes land you in high-level encounter land? Plants don't grow in Midgar, so who grows the food and transports it?
