No not as a couple. I was going through some FF posts and GIFs and drawings (because that's my forum job!) and I started to realize that the their friendship is actually very well written but goes largely unnoticed.

What did you think about these two?

One of the best character relationships in the game and I love the fact that they don't push love between the two.

I've always pictured Tifa and Barret as Marlene's adoptive parents although they aren't together; just a strong friendship. It was very well done.

I thought they were married and Marlene were their daughter the first time I played the game as a kid.

I've never been so wrong.

I kind of wish the game had elaborated more on how they met. They're bosom buddies by the time Cloud rolled in and it would have been interesting to see a flashback showing how they met.

Agreed on the whole thread. They're relationship is very well written, and it's nice to see that kind of interaction between people in games. Not a common thing, I find.

The scene where the Highwind is escaping the Northern Crater and Tifa falls over as Barret rushes to her side to stop her from falling off the ship is a nice silent indication of their friendship and how Barret cares for her. Always liked that scene, and no i didn't just like because of the bewbs. ;)

My favourite party was Cloud, Tifa and Barret. It's just a very strong friendship they have forged from their Avalanche connection. I really like the scene where her and Barrett are locked in Shinra HQ after the weapons wake up.
