Added DiffLines:

* FeelingTheBabyKick: ''Life Renewed'', after receiving the news that they are expecting, Sephiroth is lying in bed with Aeris, putting his hand on her stomach to feel their child even though it's still too early for that. Later, he keeps trying to feel it, but every time he does the baby stops moving.


* ALessonLearnedTooWell: After trying to peek on Remi while she's changing and Aeris giving him a lecture on the need for privacy, Raz refuses to let Sam into the bathroom while he's taking a bath, even though Sam's having a PottyEmergency. Eventually, Seph convinces him to unlock the door then hide under the bath bubble until Sam's done.



* PinkIsForSissies: In "Right Lesson, Wrong Time", Sam is trying to get into the potty in the bathroom where his older brother is taking a bath. There's another in the upstairs bathroom, but he refuses to use it because it's ''ugly'' (pink).



* PottyDance: "Right Lesson, Wrong Time" has Sam doing this while Sephiroth tries to convince Raz to let him into the bathroom to use the potty. After finally being let into the bathroom, Sam [[PottyFailure misses the potty]].

Added DiffLines:

* ParentsAsPeople: Much of the side stories deals with Aeris and Sephiroth, and pretty much anyone else who has kids, learning how to and how ''not'' to deal with them, such as Seph using ''Sleep'' and ''Silence'' materia to crowd control his kids, Aeris using a garden hose to break up fights, since she's not strong enough to do it herself, and Shera kicking Cid every time he swears in front of their daughter, which she quickly has to stop because said daughter starts kicking Cid herself.

* AdaptationalBadass: Aeris is quite proficient with the sword, or staff in the reboot.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Sephiroth, of course. Raised in a loving family with full knowledge of what Jenova is and his true parentage, Seph manages to resist going insane and becoming the monster he was in canon.



* AscendedExtra: Jessie is a relatively minor character in canon, being killed off fairly early in the game, but here she's a major character and Aeris' friend.
* BadLiar: Aeris is never very good at telling them, either as a child or when she gets older.

* DeadpanSnarker: Sephiroth usually has a dry comment or two.

However, after the Gasts are forced to flee Icicle Inn, it takes seven years for him to track the family down. By that time, Sephiroth wants nothing to do with him, thinking of Professor Gast as the only father he needs.
* DreamWalker: To get back at the author of the erotic novel based on her and Seph's relationship, Aeris enters her dreams and basically gives her a ReasonYouSuckSpeech.



* GeekyTurnOn: Sephiroth gets ''very'' turned on when Aeris gets devious.
-->'''Aeris''': Honestly, the sexiest lingerie I could possibly wear doesn't compare to when I do something devious, does it?
* HalfHumanHybrid: Aeris, of course, is half-human/half-Cetra. Sephiroth turns out to be half-human/half Seraph.



* HeelFaceTurn: Rufus slowly starts to realize exactly what Shinra's been doing to the planet.



* IllGirl: Due to her vestigial wing, which is little more than skin and bone and ''very'' prone to infections, Remi has a tendency to be sick quite a bit as a child until she has it removed.



* LastOfHerKind: Averted with Aeris when she discovers that the Cetra are actually part of a greater collective of spacefaring travelers who find planets to cultivate.



* MartyrWithoutACause: Discussed during their heart-to-heart, when Aeris tells Seph that she's not just some tragic altruist waiting to go down in a blaze of glory.
* MassiveNumberedSiblings: Aeris and Sephiroth go on to have seven children. This leads to Sephiroth literally getting [[TheGlomp pounced on by his brood]] every time he comes home from a long mission.
-->'''Aeris''': They only mob you like that because they love you and miss you when you're gone.
-->'''Sephiroth''': Love hurts...



* {{Patricide}}: As Emerald WEAPON is bearing down on Junon, [[spoiler: Rufus takes the opportunity to lure his father into its reach, resulting in his death.]]
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Remi is strong enough at age three to actually cause Seph pain. This, combined with her ferocious temper, causes Aeris some serious worry about her hurting someone, accidentally or otherwise. Eventually, she and Seph decide to have her start training with the staff to both give her an outlet and teach her disicpline.



* PowerIncontinence: As a teenager, Sephiroth had a tendency to have his hands suddenly burst into flame when stressed out. He took to wearing fire-proof gloves to prevent himself from burning the town down. On the occasion he gets sick, he worries the same thing will happen.



* SarcasmMode: Aeris really starts to lay it on when she's around Rufus.



* SheIsAllGrownUp: Seph suddenly realizes this one day when when Aeris hugs him from behind, causing him to suddenly realize she has breasts now.
* SiblingRivalry: Given the eventual size of their family, it should be no surprise that their kids have the occasional fight, sometimes teasing, sometimes physical.
* SilentTreatment: Aeris does this in "Road Trip" After Seph uses Sleep materia on Keter.
* {{Sleepwalking}}: Pregnant Cetra are apparently prone to sleepwalking episodes, among other things. Gets to the point that by her fourth pregnancy, Aeris thinks she's having a lucid dream when she sees a book apparently based on her and Seph's romance.

Aeris takes to using for herself when ''she's'' in the mood herself. Or when she wants wants to allude to sex without being obvious, which can lead to awkward situations when she says it in front of a curious three-year old.
