* HellIsThatNoise: Some of the music is used to good effect. "Those Chosen By The Planet," with its bassline simulating a heartbeat, stands out.

* MisaimedFandom: Vincent is ''not'' emo. Not until ''Dirge Of Cerberus'', anyway. In the original game, talking with him whenever you get the chance shows that a distinct ''lack'' of expressing any feeling is a big characteristic of Vincent, rather than moping or being depressed.

** Cloud and Tifa were ''not'' childhood friends. It was a major plot and character point that, by their own admission, they didn't know each other very well growing up. Cloud was a loner and had a crush on Tifa from afar but was not part of her circle of friends, while Tifa didn't really pay attention to Cloud until he left to join SOLDIER and she began to think about him more often. Despite this, fans and even Square-Enix themselves heavily push the two as being childhood friends that grew up together.

* BaseBreaker:
** While subsequent games have made it worse, this is the game that shattered the fanbase, largely due to the sudden shift in art style, atmosphere and console. Camps of fans include those who never got into the series until it came out and hate the games that came before, those that loved the games before and consider this one to have killed the series, those that consider this game the best RPG of all time, those that consider it SoOkayItsAverage with too much hype, and those that consider it an overrated unoriginal piece of junk. And then there's fans who love the original game but hate its expanded universe.
** Correspondingly, Cloud, Sephiroth and Aerith. Aerith in particular, some players just never got over her death, and hate that she died after they got so attached to her.

** After Cait Sith's heroic sacrifice and [[spoiler:because he's [[{{Badass}} Reeve Tuesti]], guys]]. His portrayal on ''VideoGame/DirgeOfCerberus'' was very well received, too (save for his English voice.)

** Yuffie was originally a hated character by some in the original game due to [[SoLongAndThanksForAllTheGear her theft of your materia during the Wutai sidequest.]] Characterization in ''KingdomHearts'', ''Anime/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren'' and ''{{Dirge of Cerberus}}'' helped to appease those fans, but [[BrokenBase those who liked her beforehand were disappointed that she'd lost her edge]].

** Too many to name. Among other things, with the right Materia combination, it was possible to throw yourself into a loop of [[LastDiscMagic Knights of the Round]] until whatever you were facing was dead. This includes ''the final boss''. And the {{Bonus Boss}}es.

* PortingDisaster: Not as bad as some games, but the PC version has a truly tragic cut because it made the jump to a 100%-{{MIDI}} soundtrack. However, this meant that the choral track of [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic One Winged Angel]] was lost for some people because it was in a format that not every sound card could play.
