- Who's Who
- CV: Rachael Leigh Cook / Ayumi Ito
- Age in Grymoire: 20
- Notes: Aspiring martial artist / Seems cheerful and outgoing, but is actually quite shy / "Whoa! It finally worked!" / A cowgirl? Really?
- She's There When You Need Her
- Even though Tifa had never met Reynn and Lann, she still put herself in danger to rescue them. Call it heroic or call it reckless, Tifa just isn't the kind of woman to leave anyone stuck in a jam.
- Tifa's Dream
- Tifa makes ends meet as a guide in Babil, but hopes to one day save up enough to open her own restaurant. She'd be in seventh heaven if she ever made it happen.
- Ready to Wrangle
- Tifa's wearing her CRISIS CORE -FINAL FANTASY VII- outfit. However, she's the same age as she was in FINAL FANTASY VII.
- A Childhood Friend
- When Tifa ran into Cloud during the Cogna invasion, she was shocked to discover that he was the same Cloud she grew up with. But whether or not Cloud remembers her is anyone's guess.
- The Mysterious Master
- Tifa was badly hurt during a calamity that befell the village of Mist, which stood where Nibelheim does today. The man who would become her master just happened to be visiting the village and saved her life. Ever since, she's been his loyal student and disciple in the martial arts.
- And clearly, he doesn't go easy on her. In fact, she now assumes that every horrible crisis she encounters must be some part of her master's training. Which makes you wonder what he's put her through...
- Oh, and in case you're wondering... Sorry! Tifa's master will not be making an appearance this time.

Guest appearances[edit | edit source]
Tifa is an initial playable character whose moveset includes Somersault, Beat Rush, and chargeable energy blasts. Her alternate costume is based on her Yoshitaka Amano artwork, and a third unlockable costume depicts her in her cowgirl outfit from the time she served as a guide in Nibelheim in Final Fantasy VII. Tifa is fought as an optional boss in the game's Arcade Mode in the Golden Saucer. To fight her, the player must defeat every opponent up to Sasuke in under 3 minutes and 20 seconds. Her title is "Summoner", and she can be fought after defeating "Guardian" Cloud.
Tifa's fighting style is Zangan-Ryu Martial Arts mixed with Ken's fighting style, known as Mishima-Style Fighting Karate. Some of her moves are based on Jin Kazama's former fighting style of Advanced Mishima-Style Fighting Karate and Kazama-Style Traditional Martial Arts in Tekken 3, as she utilizes his basic combo attacks and two of his special moves, Demon Scissors and Double Lift Kick, mixed with her Limit Break, Somersault. Few of her Limit Breaks are used as her basic attacks.
Her unique ability is using her Materia magic, as she casts Fire and Ice to deal double damage and to heal her magic points by sacrificing few of her hit points by casting Drain. During charge, she can cast two spells similar to a Red Mage's Dualcast. Her win animation is her victory pose from Final Fantasy VII.
Tifa appears in Kingdom Hearts II, looking around Hollow Bastion for Cloud and helping Leon defend Hollow Bastion when the world is invaded. Tifa wishes to help Cloud fight Sephiroth, and has spent much of the game searching for him. She interrupts a battle between the two and gives Cloud the power of light to combat Sephiroth's darkness.
Cloud shines brightly and he and Sephiroth depart to places unknown to continue their battle. Tifa thanks Sora for his help in locating Cloud and gives him the Fenrir Keychain. She later appears as a boss in several cups in the Underworld Coliseum, fighting with the other Final Fantasy characters.
Tifa is the physical embodiment of Cloud's inner light to oppose Sephiroth, Cloud's darkness. She may be incorporeal and not an actual human. Nomura left her nature open to interpretation to generate discussion among players on whether or not Tifa was human.
Tifa was originally supposed to appear in Kingdom Hearts, but was removed for time reasons.
