Wind up and unleash an overhead strike. Increased damage on stagger. Costs 2 ATB.
Infinity's End is an ability for Cloud in Final Fantasy VII Remake, provided to him by the Hardedge. Cloud charges up an attack, before then rising his sword and swinging it to deal tremendous burst damage to an enemy. The attack costs 2 ATB charges.
Use[edit | edit source]
Infinity's End deals tremendous burst damage, further increased against a staggered enemy, but takes a long time to charge up and is costly for ATB. This means that it should not be used generally, as enemies can normally dodge out of it causing its ATB to be wasted. However, against staggered enemies, Infinity's End is extremely strong and can deal tremendous damage, bursting down powerful enemies quickly. Once an enemy is staggered, Cloud should switch to Punisher Mode, build his ATB against the enemy quickly, and then use Infinity's End to deal max damage.
When Cloud obtains Infinity's End, it becomes his preferred ability to use against staggered enemies, over Braver or Triple Slash. Braver is still better to use if Cloud will be unable to build his ATB fast enough, but Infinity's End is best in most other scenarios. This is because Infinity's End has significantly higher attack power than Braver or Triple Slash against a staggered enemy. However, during general use, its damage output is only slightly higher than Braver, making it an inefficient use of ATB.
To further increase its damage, Cloud can combine it with Tifa's Unbridled Strength techniques and her True Strike, and/or with Aerith's Ray of Judgement first to increase stagger bonus damage, but Infinity's End will deal tremendous damage on its own regardless. It is one of the few abilities in the game capable of dealing 9999 damage at ease.
