Battle

First battle

Sephiroth summons four elemental crystals: the Fire Materia, the Blizzard Materia, the Thunder Materia, and the Support Materia. The elemental Materia cast spells based on their element up to -ga level, and resist the element they are composed of as well as physical attacks. The Support Materia heals Sephiroth. At times, he will cast Dispel to remove any status buffs Zack uses.

Sephiroth often teleports around and it is hard to catch him from behind as he simply turns. Sephiroth will constantly wait for the player to attack before swiftly landing either a 2-hit or 4-hit combo. He can use the DMW attack, Octaslash, and his classic Heartless Angel attack, which knocks Zack's HP down to 1. He is also able to use Draw Slash to create a wide slash of energy.

Second battle

Now Zack is standing on a long platform and can only attack Sephiroth from the front. After every attack Sephiroth uses, Zack is knocked back further. If Zack is pushed off the platform, it is Game Over. Sephiroth is generally easier this time and does not summon the four crystals.

Etymology

Səphīrōth (סְפִירוֹת, medieval Hebrew form of Sephirot; also spelled Sefirot), is a plural noun in Hebrew; the singular is Sephirah (also spelled Sefira). The Sephiroth are described in the Kabbalah as the manifestations of God that allow him to manifest in the physical and metaphysical universes. Sephiroth also means "counting" (of numbers).
