Fridge Logic

  • Zack's Last Stand sees the Digital Mind Wave breakdown the further you progress and defeat enemies. 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.

Fridge Brilliance

  • 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.


Fridge Horror

  • Look at Sephiroth's face during the entire game, his skin is clear, his eyes are bright blue/green, then look at the infamous fire scene, his skin is pale, his eyes have shadows under them, his eyes seem dull and sinister. Remember, this is practically the only game where we see Sephiroth before his madness for longer than the flashback, showing how disturbing a change Sephiroth had in personality and apparently, physical appearance.

How well does it match the trope?
