    dude, you have a problem. My friend is an excellent Zack cosplayer. what is your belief that cosplayers are retarded? Because they dress up as a certain character? that they pretty much live halloween for a living? My friend gets PAID for dressing up and acting at conventions. that is in an insane job. Are you just jealous? Or are you just hateful to everyone around you.

    Well...im a huge FF7 Fan and so naturally i have an answer to this question :P. even though everyone else is...well i dont know what's going on with them.

    You know how much meaning the sword has, and how Zack used it before Cloud. In a secret in the original game (that i didnt find until my 5th playthrough) you get to see just how much Zack had an influence on Cloud

    sadly...he is killed on a

    CLIFF OVERLOOKING MIDGAR

    so you see, the place where Cloud leaves the sword in the movie is Zack's grave. Cloud was right by Zack when he died, but he was spared. from then on, Cloud essentially became Zack.

    It was Zack's idea to become a mercenary. it was Zack who made it into solider.

    and how does FF7 start? with Cloud the Ex-soldier for hire!

    So basically, Cloud cosplays as Zack right? Then that means Cloud cosplayers are actually cosplaying as someone who's cosplaying someone else!

    In that case Cloud cosplayers should get paid double.

    Well, cloud should be fired actually. Because in theory, he shouldnt even be there. Zack should. Unless he phoned in sick. In which case it is okay.

    What if Cloud didn't get the memo and showed up at the same time Zack did?

    Awkwarrrrd.

    In CC we hear Angeal talking about not wanting to use the Buster Sword because it would bring about rust and wear and tear and that would be a real waste. But Angeal is long gone during AC and the buster sword is Clouds' to do with as he pleases and he leaves it rusting and all dirty at the place of Zack's death.

    It makes a fitting tombstone I suppose. The game creators found they wanted to write Cloud reminiscing in a situation that would require a cemetary of which there are none on the planet so they cooked this up instead.

    Are you serious? What did they bury there? The people's possessions? It's not like anyone leaves a corpse.

    In FF7 the graveyards are for the people who died when their town's respective Mako Reactors exploded.

    thats actually an interesting concept. Emo fanboys at its best! I wasn't that much of a fan of 7 (although i have a shinra employee card, cause shinra was the shit, ya know before the owner got stabbed by a muthafuckin 12 foot long sword) but yeah. interesting concept.

    It could've been used as a plot point illustrating Cloud moving on and leaving the past behind...but of course that didn't happen.

    But yeah...who wants character/story progression?

    It was old, hence the way it looks in AC (rusted really badly). Cloud also decided to use it as a fitting way to remember Zack. He marked the spot where he died with the weapon, possibly as a sign of his moving on.


    That's about it.

    For one, the buster sword was Zack's, and in Advent Children were the buster sword was placed...that is the spot were Zack died.

    Sence we are sharing FFVII qustions and answers, I have one.
    Dose any one know what is the deal with that wolf in Advent Children? I am sure that it has some kind of meaning or symbolism..............but I don't know what it is. Anything....Anyone?

    The wolf is supposed to symbolize Cloud and his desire to be forgiven for past mistakes. That is why he wears the 'cloudy wolf' which is the broach on his chest and the same design for his earrings.

    That is pretty interesting. I just never understood what the wolf symbolized. Cool!
    Was this some kind of offical fact or what you think it means? I'm not questioning your answer, I just didn't pick that up from watching the movie.

    How exactly does a wolf symbolize forgiveness?

    According to Sweetsong, it's his desire to be forgiven, not forgiveness, but I can't see either one.

    x2

    There's even a lack of outside references from other works where something along those lines has been proven.

    I know there is nothing cannon about this but it sort of makes sense, it was taken from the following fansite - [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    The wolf is tied to Cloud throughout Advent Children. It follows him while he wanders the world in loneliness, its face becomes his insignia, engraved on ornaments on his chest, earrings, and even his gloves, and he even names his motorcycle after Fenrir, the mammoth wolf from Norse mythology.

    The wolf is that guilt; it is the constant reminder of his failures in the past that continue to plague him in the present. Even if great steps have been taken to move on and start anew in the past two years, no amount of success can raise the dead, a fact that becomes painfully clear after Cloud contracts Geostigma--a death sentence in and of itself. As long as that wolf wanders the world in loneliness, Cloud will as well. He will never be able to find the forgiveness he so desperately needs. But from whom does he need to be forgiven? Does he seek it from those whose lives have been lost, or is it within his own troubled heart that he will find penance?


    It is over his heart that the Cloudy Wolf rests, an ornament not coincidentally resembling something of a gothic doorknocker. It shields his heart, locking these regrets inside and hiding them away where they will grow and fester until they are too much to bear.
