Tifa Lockhart has become a wholesome Italian icon

Because we live in a society, the biggest gaming news of the month alongside Microsoft’s unprecedented acquisition of Activision Blizzard is the impalement of Tifa Lockhart during a meeting of the Italian Senate. Our daughter is following in the footsteps of Julius Caesar and I can’t help but applaud her for her audacity. She didn’t have sex with Aerith, which is sacrilege.

If you haven’t been paying attention, last week someone invaded a Zoom meeting held by the Italian Senate only to share a video of Tifa acting mean for all to see. It was an incredible moment of cultural significance for Italy and Final Fantasy, an occasion that I have no doubt will be recorded in the history books so that scholars decades from now can look back where everything changed, when we all started embracing hentai. like the art it really is. I’m only kidding lightly, but the fallout from this random prank was so damn adorable.

As a society, we can often view any art form that includes nudity or sexual intercourse as immediately profane. I mean it’s dirty, but I’ve always thought there’s a beautiful intimacy to sex that goes way beyond a one-way ticket to Bonetown. Make no mistake, the Italian Senate was subject to absolute rules dirt, high-level hentai of a JRPG heroine subjected to a Buster Sword like we’ve never seen before. Yet the internet – or at least much of it – didn’t see this as a childish prank to be considered a dirty joke and nothing more. They made it into a meme, an aspect of Tifa’s character that will be ingrained in her story from now on, and there’s something brilliant about it.

While some of the fanart I’ve seen builds on this news in an equally cheeky way, most play on the fun fact that Tifa of all people was rushed into a meeting of the Italian Senate. I doubt any of these officials knew who she was, she was just a cartoon woman having sex while trying to talk about legislation, or whatever a senate is doing – I’m not sure honestly not so sure. Some of the designs are just wonderful, whether it’s cute doodles of Tifa sporting a mustache like Super Mario, hopping on the spot in a chubby form because it happens to match the Italian pattern, or a cherished illustration of Avalanche huddled around a laptop as Tifa blushes, presumably because they’re all watching the infamous clip in question. Aerith’s poop-eating smile in that particular room draws me in every time, because you just know she wouldn’t let Tifa go through that.

It’s a testament to the Final Fantasy community, which I can assure you is really, really excited, but still able to see the undeniable humor in a situation like this and turn it into something which deserves to be celebrated. Final Fantasy 7 Remake saw these characters return to the modern zeitgeist in ways none of us could have predicted, and see them continually embraced through fanart, memes, theories and more. materials means that as a fan, I’m constantly thrilled by it all, even if it plays on the weird news that Tifa got insulted in a parliamentary meeting. Seriously, it’s like someone accidentally popped up a gif of Lady Dimitrescu’s face sitting in the middle of Prime Minister’s Questions.


The internet is a terrible place most of the time, but seeing a collective reaction to silly news like this with an explosion of playful art and memes gives me hope and shows just how healthy and sane Final Fantasy has become. how much these iconic characters mean to people. Tifa Lockhart is now celebrated as an Italian icon, a girl who should run for president and wear that accidental outburst of her intimate side on her sleeve as she and the rest of the Avalanche play her for a laugh. Everyone has sex, everyone is a little naughty, and it shouldn’t always be seen as unnecessary promiscuity. It can just be a little fun, especially when its genesis is as absurd and nonsensical as Tifa takes it on a super official Zoom call.

Get it, Tifa – the unstoppable bisexual queen of Final Fantasy.
