Sephiroth's Sword Sharp - With Sharp Wit

Sephiroth is simply amazing, I'm sure we can agree. But have you ever wondered what he might be like in person? A conversation with Sephiroth could range from any number of topics - how he plans to defeat cloud, how to take over the planet, what it's like being so powerful, and more. I expect Final Fantasy's Sephiroth to have a wit as sharp as his sword. As we already know from Advent Children, his voice is rich and powerful, and he can sound as evil as he would like. But Sephiroth is, thanks to the infusion of Mako and Jenova cells, all-powerful, and also blazing smart. His war tactics in Wutai, which did mainly consist of him simply being awesome, took down the island without too much trouble.

Sephiroth's rich history probably ensures he is elegantly breathtaking in conversation, as he is in battle. He was born and raised by Shinra scientists, obviously the brightest of the bright (albeit occasionally a little eccentrict), and he no-doubt inherited both the good and the bad as a result. Sephiroth was a terrific leader to his SOLDER troops, and excelled in nearly everything he did.

Student Loan - Sephiroth - Etc

Personal: Ranting on, it looks like I might have to get a student loan to pay for all my crazy college stuff.

Sephiroth: I've noticed the one place I typically like to buy a Sephiroth Sword, from TrueSwords, no longer offers it. It does not even say 'out of stock' or anything anymore. They were likely sued by Square Enix for selling replica Sephiroth merchandise. Their swords were just the right length... they weren't actual length, but they were wieldable by human hands (not easily, however). Sephiroth's Masamune blade does not coincide well with simple, constant hack-and-slash tactics, but require swift, decisive swings.

Masamune was recognized as one of Japan's greatest swordsmiths, which is where his blade gets it's name. You might also recognize the name Murasame as one of the blades you can win on the Gold Saucer roller coaster. The Murasame is more of a cursed blade that cuts down lives without discretion, while the Masamune is more honorable.

Sephiroth Cosplay Sword

Sephiroth's sword can also be seen in a variety of Sephiroth Cosplay, which you can't miss. Check out some awesome cosplay pictures of the leader of Jenova's Witnesses, and learn more about how Sephiroth will come to rule the planet.

Sephiroth Masamune

The Masamune is a long, curved blade wielded by the legendary Sephiroth (Final Fantasy VII, Kingdom Hearts 1, Kingdom Hearts 2). Sephiroth uses this tremendous sword to cut things and kill several people throughout the course of events in Final Fantasy VII. The Sephiroth Masamune can be wielded only by Sephiroth, due to it's shear size and weight. It is rather unbalanced, considering it is 40% longer than the average human height. The sword is a great sight to behold, and you best be sure you are on the winning side when it is brought out in combat.

Sephiroth uses this sword, along with the power given to him thanks to Jenova cells infused with Mako energy, to help win battles in Wutai, for example. He is virtually unstoppable in combat, and few people, except Cloud, are insane enough to battle him.
