Tifa Lockhart is a playable character in Final Fantasy VII. She is a childhood friend of Cloud's, and a member of AVALANCHE.


Tifa is Cloud's childhood friend from the village Nibelheim, but lost contact with him years ago. When they meet again, she persuades him to join AVALANCHE, the resistance group she is a member of, to fight against Shinra Electric Power Company, whom she bears hatred for due to the destruction of their hometown. She supports Cloud and helps him and his allies fight Sephiroth. Tifa is shy and empathic, acting as a motherly figure towards her comrades when providing encouragement and emotional support.

Tifa uses martial arts in battle, and equips knuckles as her weapon. Her Limit abilities make use of her martial arts techniques further, and unlike other characters, her Limit Break abilities are not selected from a list, rather, each ability can be used repeatedly if the slots land on the "Yeah!" reel for the ability.
