Post Reply Which do you like better, Cloud with Tifa or Aeris?
Posted 6/3/09 , edited 6/5/09
I love Cloud and Tifa the most... CLOUD and TIFA!!!!!!

I LOVE CLOUDxTIFA!!!!!! Not in my right mind can I ever mesh Aeris and Cloud well... er, together, ya know. I don’t feel the sparks going on with Cloud and Aeris… but humongous loads of Fireworks Exploding like Nukes that cover the entire Universe with Cloud and Tifa. Aeris is now a memory and like an older sis and/or mother type fig to him now. That’s what I perceive; even if Aeris still survived I'd still think that Tifa belongs to Cloud. Aeris is a guy stealer and I don’t like her for that, Tifa wanted to show her love to cloud but annoying Aeris got in the way. Although I will accept her that she helped save the world by praying for Holy in the last minute when she died. It just flows better in a way that she did pass away so she had an advantage being in the Lifestream helping the group. That reminds me that I need to clarify that... AERIS IS D.E.A.D... DEAD.... dead, got it! For Cloud, it's not healthy to keep somewhat liking someone who has passed away in the first place and ignore a true and real lover, Tifa.

I totally love Cloud and Tifa. Aeris ticked me off to the point that I wanted to slap her for stealing Cloud away from Tifa. I thought that it was always cute that Tifa always worried about him every time something bad happened. And the promise they made with each other was something that Cloud never forgets and that just amazes me. Also one of the main reasons he joined SOILDER in the first place is because he wanted to impress Tifa. They are much much MUCH more closer to each other than Aeris ever was. Aeris was only there for only 1 discs time. I mean Cloud only met her for a bit, and he knew Tifa for how long!? Cloud always loved Tifa and known her since he was a small child, so it’s like forever ago in comparison. Obviously Cloud, has had feelings for Tifa and her for him ever since then, and nor can I deny it... EVER! Also in my first time playing this game I played it with stupid Aeris scenes and hated it! In the end of finishing the game I still loved the Cloud with Tifa pairing entirely. Then after that, I played it again to get the Tifa scenes instead and laugh at Aeris's death and not be nice to her, mwahaha! With all my heart, I think that Aeris and Zack is better, only when she is with Zack she is okay, because Zack and Aeris is in my view just meshes a Zillion times better. Since she’s dead and in the Lifestream with Zack again, she just needs to remember who she truly fell in love with in the first place and it was him… yes, Zack! Because Zack is awesome! O~oooo I forgot that Aeris saw traits of Zack in Cloud and that’s probably one reason for her evil-ness of trying to steal away Tifa's love. Cloud and Tifa 4 EVER!

And here's my facts again about why I love Cloud and Tifa more, in a short list:

1. Cloud joined SOLDIER to impress her
2. He kept his promise to her that he would help her in need
3. In the Lifestream we found who the real Cloud was and who he really cared for
4. The Under the Highwind scene near at the end of disc 2 (REALLY CUTE!)
5. In "Case of Tifa" novel Cloud says he's happy he's with her and wants to live a normal life with her. In other words, a family
6. In the Reunion Files of Advent Children, Nomura and Nojima called Tifa a "koibito" which in Japanese, means a lover/sweetheart. Why would they give her that name for no apparent reason?
7. Then I could go on for hours and write a Zillion more in this list, but I'm too lazy~hehe (But if anybody entices me I will)
8. Almost Forgot! Aeris is D.E.A.D..... dead and in the lifestream with Zack now!

CLOTI! for me all the way

Amazingly cute Cloud and Tifa quotes! (… and official)

"Whenever I'm in trouble, my hero will come and rescue me." - Tifa, (disk 1)

"No matter what anyone else says to me, it's your attitude that counts..."- Cloud to Tifa, (disk 2)

"Why.....? What do you want me to do?"
"Please, Cloud.......Talk to me......."
"Tell me you see me, that you can hear me........
Tell me, please......."
"I came this far believing in the memories we have together..."
"This isn't happening........! This is too cruel......."
"Oh, Cloud........!"
- Tifa, (disk 2)

"I don't care about anything else, only Cloud......"
"I.......want to be by his side......." - Tifa, (disk 2)

"......I was devastated. ......I wanted to be noticed."
"I thought if I got stronger I could get someone to notice........." - Cloud
"Someone has to notice you...? ......who?" - Tifa
"Who.........? ......You know who! ......You, that's who." - Cloud - (disk 2)

"After you left town, I really thought about you a lot."
"I used to wonder how Cloud was doing."
"I wonder if Cloud was able to get into SOLDIER?" - Tifa, (disk 2)

"......a sealed up secret...... wish......"
"Tender memories...... no one can ever know........." - Cloud to Tifa, (disk 2)

"Mom... Tifa... my town... give it back..." - Cloud, (disk 2)

"You were there."
"You were watching me." - Tifa, (disk 2)

"Cloud.....Words aren't the only thing that tell people what you're thinking..." - Tifa, (disk 2)

"As long as I'm with you... As long as you're by my side... I won't give up even if I'm scared." - Tifa, (disk 2)

"But deep in my heart I heard you calling my name... Or at least I thought I did..." - Tifa, (disk 2)

"Someday we'll find the answer. Right, Tifa?"
"That's what I learned from you when I was in the Lifestream." - Cloud, (disk 2)

"This day will never come again... So let me have this moment..."
"Yeah... okay."
"This is probably the last time we'll have together......" - Cloud and Tifa, (disk 2)

[Cloud:] “This time… I think I’ll be okay.”

Cloud was silent for a long time before he spoke again. “Because I have you.”

[Tifa:] “You’ve always had me.”

“I mean from Tomorrow on.” Cloud answered with another smile

- Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children [THE NOVEL] - Case of Tifa

When they were alone, Cloud commented, “It’s not like you to get weighed down.”

[Tifa:] “Now you know…how I am.”

“No. You’re upbeat, and strong. And if you forget that, then I’ll get you to remember.”

“Oh, you will?”

“Yeah, probably,” Cloud added with a blush.

- Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children [THE NOVEL] - Case of Tifa

“I knew one thing was for sure. Cloud and Tifa would be together. Everybody would be back where they belonged”

- Quote from the mastermind Nojima himself

"When confronted by his childhood friend and AVALANCHE member, Tifa, Cloud agrees to keep his boyhood promise to protect her,[22]

22. ^ Before leaving Nibelheim, Cloud declared that "I’ll be a SOLDIER" to a village girl, Tifa, with whom he secretly fell in love, and made a promise to protect her. (Crisis Core Ultimania)"

- Wikipedia ~ Cloud Strife:

"Tifa is Cloud's steady friend, partner, and potential love interest. Two years after the events, she works at her bar, Seventh Heaven, and works with Cloud and his delivery service. The two live together with Marlene, Barret's adoptive daughter, and Denzel, an orphaned boy infected by the Geostigma. For the longest time that Cloud was in love with Tifa, she did not acknowledge his feelings. Only when Cloud had joined SOLDIER did she admit her feelings for him. In Advent Children, she plays the part of Cloud's earthly anchor and she urges him to come to terms with the unwarranted guilt he has placed on himself. She is voiced by Ayumi Ito in the Japanese version and Rachael Leigh Cook in the English version. "



Tifa is one Heck've an Amazing Fighter!

Totally agree!!!
In Advent Children:

Cloud: Mother..?
Aeris: Again! How many times is it now that you've called me Mother?
Zack: Isn't it nice to be yearned for?
Aeris: I don't need a kid as big as this one!
Zack: Too bad..your place is not here. I'm teling you.

...I don't know why am I obsessing on this. but thanks for the post that helped

I'd actually way prefer Clerith over CloTi. I like Aerith in general more because Tifa comes off... almost clingy in her obsession with Cloud during the game. Plus, I'm not fond of the fact that she didn't even care about him for the vast majority of their childhood until he finally left.

I think the game itself encourages Clerith more. Who you go on the Golden Saucer Date with is determined by a number of factors that sort of give points to each different person available (kind of like how most otome games run, only we can't see the relationship bars) and the game sets it up so that Aerith is the most likely candidate for the date because her "relationship bar" starts off with the highest value.

There's also how Cloud can't bring himself to kill her, even though Sephiroth is messing with his brain (though I -do- think that he wouldn't have wanted to kill any of his friends, I think the fact that it was Aerith helped). Then she died, which made me horribly sad (I remember crying the first time I saw it. So sue me. I was seven.) But at the end of the game after Cloud kills Sephiroth, he gets surrounded by the Lifestream and a hand reaches out to him. I know some CloTi fans will say how it ends up being Tifa's hand, but I don't think that that's really the case. First of all, who's in the Lifestream? Aerith of course. Also, Tifa's hand would be gloved if the illusionary hand were hers as well as the real one, but only the real hand has a glove. Plus, if you look at the skin tones, it matches Aerith's hand, not Tifa's. And the most convincing thing for why Cloud would be reaching out to Aerith is the fact that they happen to play Aerith's Theme at the time.

I do think Aerith liked Cloud particularly because he was similar to Zack at that stage in the game, but I don't think that that would be all there is to it. She doesn't seem that shallow. I think she genuinely liked him because he was Cloud, even if he was like Zack.

Also, I don't think it's fair to assume that Cloud and Tifa were made for each other because he had a childhood crush on her. Yes he kept his promise to her, and he helped her when she needed it, but it was mainly one-sided. As shown in the flashbacks during the Lifestream incident, Tifa and Cloud weren't close at all. She seemed to regard him more as a creepy little freak than a friend. Cloud was that kid that no one plays with, including Tifa. She even admitted that they weren't very close.

If you compare the amount of time spent together, Aerith accomplished a lot more in the ways of opening up Cloud than Tifa did. Tifa had Cloud's lifetime, while Aerith had a few months, but Cloud seems to be nicer to Aerith.

I think Tifa makes a decent replacement since Aerith -is- in fact dead, but I don't think that Cloud and Tifa would have gotten together if Aerith had survived. After all, Cait Sith -did- say that Cloud and Aerith had perfect compatability.

I do like ZackxAerith, but I also like Clerith. Really, I'm pretty open with most Cloud pairings, even crossover pairings, but I've never really felt CloTi. Then again, I don't really like a good portion of the more cannon pairings in the Final Fantasy games. I hate Squinoa with a passion after all. But this isn't about FF VIII, so I'll forget that.

Basically, I prefer Clerith to CloTi as I said in the beginning. =)

Cloud and Tifa are meant for each other. Why?

1. How could Aerith and Cloud be together when Aerith is already DEAD? Zack and Aerith is the most possible thing to happen.

2. Cloud and Tifa look better together. Proof? Here...

3. In any man's viewpoint, Tifa is way much HOTTER than Aerith. (No offense meant for Aerith fans)

Aeris is with Zack. So, i guess that leaves Could with Tifa. :p

Actually, I do really like Cloud and Tifa in the movie, but in the game Tifa seems clingy and obsessive. Plus, i am a passionate believer in Zack and Aeris.
So, a relationship between Cloud and Aerith wouldn't really work. Plus, Cloud is Zack's "best friend", and what kind of friend goes stealing their best friend's girl?

Cloud and Tifa are the canon couple, actually.

This was all cleared up in both Final Fantasy VII and Crisis Core. The only reason Cloud and Aerith acted like a couple is because when Cloud met Aerith, he was living Zack's memories. He was unconsciously acting exactly like Zack, that's why he seems different in the beginning of the game. His mimicry of Zack was so great that it surprised Aerith herself.

In Crisis Core, Zack and Aerith are actually together. She's the one it shows at the moment of his death, and in Final Fantasy VII Aerith talks about how Zack was her first boyfriend. This is why they're always together in the afterlife.

The only reason Cloud seems "hung up" on Aerith in Advent Children is not because of feelings for her, but because he lays the blame for her death on himself, so he's weighed down by guilt. Conversely, Tifa was the entire reason Cloud joined SOLDIER in the first place, and did everything he did. In reality, there's no "love triangle", that's why things ended the way they did.

At the end of Advent Children, Aerith walks off with Zack, and Cloud smiles after looking at Tifa, saying "I'm not alone". If there -was- a love triangle, I doubt he'd smile there. Anyway, just thought I'd pipe in with all the established canon. Answers are literally clear.
