** In Confessions of the Creator, the Level 95 Feral Chaos. The Level 130 version is the BonusBoss, this guy is ''supposed'' to be the warm-up. The reason he's actually just as difficult if not more is that you don't have access to the northern gateways, so you can't farm the Lufenian equipment or top-level trade accessories (thus your equipment probably sucks), he has a unique Booster that gives him a 90x multiplier after 60 seconds, boosting his Attack and Defense by ''450%'', and unlike the Level 130 Feral Chaos who uses Level 1 equipment, the Level 95 one uses Level 90 equipment, including the Ogrenix and the Maxmillian for further boosts to his Attack and Defense. While the Level 130 Feral Chaos likes Vicious and Destroy for his basic Bravery attacks, the Level 95 one uses Brute Force, which executes pretty much as fast as Destroy and is as difficult to anticipate, but unlike Destroy, Brute Force can't be blocked. Even if you have equipment appropriate for the fight, you've only got 60 seconds to fight before that Booster triggers, at which point you'll be pretty much unable to damage him and he'll Break you in one hit.

Your only choice for survival is grinding it out with HP attacks and '''HOPE''' he doesn't Break you until the fight ends.



** Sephiroth suffered some decay in his home universe as well, focus shifting from his desire to become a god to his rivalry with Cloud. ''Dissidia 012'', however, decays even that, revealing the only reason Sephiroth wants to fight Cloud is to get his memories back since Cloud is from the same world as him. Had, say, Vincent or Yuffie been summoned, Sephiroth probably would have fought them just as eagerly. As a result, he's more of a [[PunchClockVillain Punch Clock]] AntiVillain, only serving Chaos and acting as a villain to regain his memories, but otherwise not doing anything really villainous.

Added DiffLines:

* IdiosyncraticShipNaming:
** Exdeath and the Cloud of Darkness are usually known as "Voidshipping" do to both having an obsession with the Void.
** Firion and Lightning are known as "Roseshipping" for their shared rose motif and the conversations they share regarding Firion's wild rose.
** 589 has been used for Bartz, Squall, and Zidane all together. The name branches to cover anything from their canon friendship to OneTrueThreesome relationships.

** ''Dissidia'', as a CrisisCrossover, can be looked at the ''Final Fantasy'' version of SuperSmashBros... AND then Cloud shows up as a DLC character.

* CompleteMonster:
** As in his original game, Kefka. He once again takes control of Terra's mind, this time making her fight the other Warriors of Cosmos, taunts and mocks her reluctance to fight and her amnesia when she cannot remember doing these things, and when she resists his control he tortures her into submission via electrocution. With Kuja, he [[spoiler:rewrites Kuja's memories to make him into a more willing tool of evil after he overhears Kuja wants to change sides, and it's heavily implied he's corrupted his memories before.]] He also [[spoiler:pulls a YouHaveFailedMe on the Cloud of Darkness, killing her at the end of the 12th cycle for telling Laguna where the Manikins come from, and manipulates Cloud and Sephiroth into conflict to motivate Cloud's HeelFaceTurn as a result of learning Cloud is tired of the war and disinterested in fighting.]] Through all of these acts, he retains his original incarnation's glee at causing destruction and chaos and finds it fun when he gets to fight other characters and cause them pain.
** In ''Dissidia 012'', Shinryu is revealed as this when the full storyline is revealed. [[spoiler:He aids Cosmos, Chaos, Cid and Garland in creating the cycles of war, which cause countless amounts of pain and violence among the summoned warriors, solely because the four have offered him power if he helps them. When Cid intervenes at the end of the cycles, Shinryu punishes him for not being neutral as was agreed, a petty act because the cycles were over whether Cid intervened or not, he just wanted to save the heroes. Shinryu's punishment is to trap him in a nightmare world where Chaos becomes AxCrazy and kills everyone, forcing Cid in the nightmare world to seal himself and Cosmos away for protection. This illusion throws all of Cid's goals and hopes into his face and twists them into mockeries of his desires, and he would have been trapped there forever if warriors hadn't entered the dream world to free him. Finally, at any time he may simply decide that when a warrior dies, he won't revive them in the next cycle, as he gets strength and memories from their battles and won't revive them if he thinks the power he'll gain from further fights involving them isn't worth the effort to bring them back.]]

CompleteMonster: [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Shinryu]] willingly turns Chaos into a more willing tool NighInvulnerable, AxCrazy force of evil after he overhears Kuja wants to change sides, and it's heavily implied destruction, knowing full well that this will likely destroy the world he's corrupted supposed to be watching over, purely out of spite. Scenario 000 reveals that [[GreaterScopeVillain pretty much everything in the Dissidia series is entirely his fault]]. To wit, he takes advantage of Cid's grief and rage over his wife's death and tricks him into [[DealWithTheDevil a Faustian deal]] under the guise that he would help make Chaos strong enough to defeat the nation of Onrac. Instead, however, Shinryu [[FateWorseThanDeath strips Cid of his body so he can never die]] and thus forever witness the cycle of death, creates Cosmos as a direct mockery of Cid's wife and keeps the War going for untold centuries, all to increase his own power by draining the warriors from both sides of their memories before.]] He also [[spoiler:pulls a YouHaveFailedMe on the Cloud of Darkness, killing her at the end of the 12th cycle for telling Laguna where the Manikins come from, and manipulates Cloud and Sephiroth into conflict to motivate Cloud's HeelFaceTurn as a result of learning Cloud is tired each cycle.

* JustHereForGodzilla: Many players picked up ''Dissidia'' for no other reason than the coolness factor of being able to play as their favourite ''FF'' hero in a fighting game. Other people just wanted to be able to play as Kefka, Sephiroth, et al, and were disappointed at the lack of Story Modes for the villains.

** An example that doubles as TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: the inclusion of [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Aerith]] allowed Square to show off a particularly nasty sense of humor... and they sure as hell [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqIr6BoGT3E didn't miss the chance to pull such a cruel joke.]][[note]]Yes, Sephiroth is ''programmed'' to use Hell's Gate on Aerith whenever she's summoned. Make of that what you will.[[/note]]

** Not to mention that in ''Duodecim'', a Feral Chaos-related scary moment comes from ''[[BewareTheNiceOnes A SIMPLE MOOGLE.]]'' To elaborate -- if you ever say you've "mastered ''Dissidia''" at the beginning of the game...
