    Default FFVII - If you could remove one character...

    Who would it be and why? Keep in mind that this would affect gameplay and story!

    Technically, Yuffie and Vincent are optional. I guess you could remove either of them and it wouldn't impact the core story so much.

    I'm going to have to say Cait Sith. I'm sorry my Moogle riding friend, but you don't really bring much to the table and on top of that you have the ability to wipe the entire party.

    Agreed. Sephiroth is the sort of character that an 11 year old boy who grew up in the 90's thinks is cool. But he actually manages to ruin what started out as a good story about fighting an evil corporation to defend the environment.

    Vincent. There is absolutely no point to him. As far as optional characters go, at least Yuffie comes in earlier, has some funny lines and an enjoyable sidequest.

    Sephiroth.

    (SPOILER)Nothing would change except the flashbacks and the fights after the final JENOVA battle.

    This. While the story of FFVII is a strong one, I did prefer it when they battling Shinra. I mean, they almost become quasi anti-heroes in places.

    The fact people are suggesting Sephiroth more than Cait Sith is disturbing and wrong.

    Remove Sephiroth and you remove most of the game, as well as your main character's character. Probably destroy Aerith's character, too.

    Cait Sith is literally the guy who just says Imma join your party and you can't stop him. Then five minutes later at Gungaga your party is like "there's a traitor among us. But WHO?!"

    I smurfing wonder.

    This one is tough for me, I didn't hesitate for the FFX one, but here I just dislike so many characters that it's hard to choose. I pretty much hate Yuffie and she adds almost nothing to the story so she feels like a safe bet, but Red XIII is also a useless entity in the story as well. Sephy is a great backstory wasted on a generic villain and I agree that Shin-Ra should have remained the focus.

    With all that said, I may have to go with Tifa, as she's largely connected to many of the reasons why I don't like the plot, and I've really grown to dislike her whiny, clingy, needy personality. The more I think about removing her from the story, the more I feel like the twists and turns in the plot would have worked better. Without her reference to ground Cloud's past, the story would have come across more interesting if the plot had just let Cloud's true past remain ambiguous.

    Red XIII gave us the Cosmo Canyon plot and is therefore saved for his admitted lack of meaningful development after Cosmo Canyon.

    No, remove sephiroth and you change most of the game. Quite possibly for the better. Remove Cait Sith and you're left with the same old story.
