Sephiroth is one of the main characters and the antagonist in Final Fantasy VII (1997) and most of its spinoff games..

Sephiroth was playable in the 3D fighting game Ehrgeiz: God Bless the Ring and returned as a playable character in the Final Fantasy Dissidia games later he also made it into the first two Kingdom Hearts games as a villain. Somehow, Sephiroth returned as a playable character again in Nintendos big Crossover fighting game Super Smash bros. Ultimate as a DLC character in 2020.

Today, Sephiroth is still one of the most popular antagonists ever in video games, it seems likely that he will appear in more games sooner or later.

He is probably earning the longest Katana Sword ever btw. according to Square-Enix is almost 2 meters long!
