* Zack's Last Stand sees the Digital Mind Wave breakdown the further you progress and defeat enemies. As RealityEnsues, this is representative of combat fatigue, which as stated by the original Wikipedia, whose symptoms include fatigue, slower reaction times, indecision, disconnection from one's surroundings, the inability to prioritize, and most significantly, an extreme feeling of losing control of a situation. Along with Zack probably being nothing but put on edge for the last several months looking behind his back for assailants, pinning him against the entire Shinra Army was likely the piledriver to the last nail to his coffin.

* In both the original ''Final Fantasy VII'' & ''Advent Children'', the scene with Sephiroth in Nibelheim's flames had him emitting a Psycho Smirk. However, in this game, the Psycho Smirk is absent, and instead he looks slightly angered or remorseful. ''Crisis Core'' shows us the scene from Zack's perspective, whereas the two previous times were from Cloud's, and the retcon suddenly makes sense - Cloud is ''from'' Nibelheim, so he would see the man who burnt the town to the ground & killed everyone there (Including Cloud's ''mother'') as an unrepentant psychopath.

* Even if you can HandWave the fact that Zack is crushing his enemies with the blunt size of the sword (which is way worse than just cutting them), it's a stupid gimmick. Even for some of the long term fans, in fact, some are relieved that this apparently didn't translate to the VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIIRemake, and Cloud uses his sword normally. In fact, even if you put the same logic of the [[Manga/{{Berserk}} Dragonslayer]], it still had some sharpness.

* When Cloud tells the story of Sephiroth's fall from grace in ''Final Fantasy VII'', he omits the presence of Genesis & his pushing Sephiroth into discovering the truth of his origins. Whilst it could simply be that Zack left that out when he told the story to Cloud, it wouldn't make sense for Zack to throw Sephiroth (Someone he considered a friend) under the bus by absolving Genesis of his role in the events; it ''would'' make sense, however, for Cloud's anger at Sephiroth over the subsequent destruction of Nibelheim to blur his recollection of the story & pin everything on Sephiroth.
