A member of AVALANCHE and Cloud's childhood friend, Tifa is a skilled martial artist. Though shy, she harbors feelings for Cloud.
Tifa is a recruitable character in Final Fantasy Record Keeper initially unlocked as the First-Time Reward in the Shinra Building 26F-30F dungeon, from the Of Shinra and Legends Challenge Event. She was also recruitable in The Battle Arena, Hidden Resolve, The Lone Wolf's Lament - Cloudy Wolf, and A Night to Remember.
A strong Monk, Tifa was the first in her class to enter the Hall of Records by way of an event. She bears many of the profession's inherent traits: high HP, a solid Attack stat, and high Speed along with pugilistic attacks and skills. Gloves and claws are her preferred weapons as well, though a true match for her skill is somewhat hard to find. Even with a dagger, Tifa is not to be taken lightly on the battlefield. However, she is somewhat weaker defensively than most of the characters in this class and needs a strong piece of light armor to compensate for the lack of Defense and Resistance.
