Use in conjunction with basic attacks to more effectively pressure enemies.

Description

Overpower is an ATB ability for Tifa in Final Fantasy VII Remake, provided to her by the Metal Knuckles Metal Knuckles. Tifa runs towards an enemy, then leaps forward feet first, and performs three kicks, somersaulting after the third to land back on the ground. The ability deals physical damage, and can be used to pressure enemies.

ObtainedEdit

Overpower is provided by Metal Knuckles. It is permanently learned by, with Metal Knuckles equipped, using Overpower on an enemy, and immediately following it up with a basic attack comb.

UseEdit

Overpower deals single target damage, and can be used to pressure some enemies. It deals decent physical damage, but in combination with Tifa's Unbridled Strength martial techniques, it plays into Tifa's strengths of quickly building up a stagger on enemies. Using Overpower can also be a great way to interrupt some enemies while they are using their abilities. The ability has minimal area-of-effect damage.

If Overpower is used, it is helpful to pair Tifa's attacks with Elemental Materia Elemental Materia to exploit an enemy's weakness. This can more easily pressure enemies that resist her physical attacks. Overpower is a niche ability that is useful in scenarios against enemies who are vulnerable to it, but should not be relied upon.

Overpower's main drawback is that many more durable enemies cannot be so easily pressured by it. It deals less damage than Divekick or Starshower, meaning it is best for building enemies up to staggering them and not for dealing damage.
