Fridge / Dead Fantasy

Fridge Brilliance:
  • Yuna's poor performance with her Aeons DOES make a bit of sense considering the fact that she(And Riku) are in their X2 depictions. By that time the Fayth had long been deactivated and Yuna had to Discard and Draw, loosing her ability to summon and learning to use guns to make up for it. Not only is she rusty as a summoner by this point, but her Aeons have very likely fallen VERY far behind in power and potency considering the fact that even the basic fiends have grown so much in power that the previously powerful to the point of omnipotence Omega Weapon was not only surpassed, but degraded to the point of being a common and relatively easy to overcome encounter. The fact that each of the DOA ladies alone were able to beat down Yuna means that the Aeons were screwed from the start when tasked with destroying hundreds of them.
  • When Tifa is absolutely thrashed after her magic heavy combo attacks in the second part, It's Yuna who comes to her aide with potion and either. old habits die hard, 'eh Yuna?
  • Notice the kneeling pose Tifa is in during Part V, after coming out of the flashback. It is the exact same pose she has in FFVII when in critical status - in other words, right before unleashing her Limit.
  • Equipping Materia gives you powers, but decreases your total HP. Tifa may have lost her magic when she lost her umpteen bazillion materia, but given how many lethal-looking attacks she tanks after...
  • Rewatch DF I and II again, and notice the tactics used: the FF girls tend towards teamwork and combination attacks (like the Haste casting), while the DOA girls try to force one-on-one battles and/or individual-focused gang-up tactics... both of which reflect the game types they're from.
  • In Dead Fantasy V, when Tifa is hallucinating before her Heroic Spirit moment, it shows her waking up at the tower from Dead Fantasy 1, in the same place she jumped in and saved Yuna and Rikku. A single white feather falls down by her side. Given that Rinoa has the ability to teleport people and that she has white feathers on her wings, could it be that she was the one who transported Tifa there to help Yuna and Rikku in their hour of need?
  • A female warrior appears over a battlefield and whisks the heroines in battle away to do battle elsewhere, in more brutal and savage conditions, apparently in preparation for a greater battle. She comes complete with sword, shield, and wings, completing the classical look associated with a certain Norse god's agents. That's right; Rinoa is a freaking Valkyrie! Of course, Fridge Horror might kick in when you remember that the Valkyries were the "Choosers of the Slain"....

Fridge Horror
  • Dead Fantasy music videos. They say if one should want to maintain their appetite for sausages, they must be careful as to not being present when they are being prepared. The music videos, too, apply: the gentleman responsible for these impressive animations are said to have employed the technique of mocap-ing himself in order to capture the delicate, acclaimed movements. The subtle hip movements near the beginning of "Obsessed" may lose their savour once a viewer learns of this truth.
