Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children (2005) Poster

Trivia

The phone used by Cloud is a Panasonic P900iV only sold in Japan. It comes in three colors, and the black one is called "Cloud Black" after the character's name.
Cloud uses five noticeable limit breaks from the original video game. He uses Blade Beam when he is fighting Loz and Yazoo at the Forgotten City. Then he uses Braver when he is fighting Bahamut Sin. He uses Climhazzard to defeat Bahamut Sin. He uses Omnislash to defeat Sephiroth, which is also the attack he uses to defeat Sephiroth in the game. The fifth technique he uses is Finishing Touch, which is used on Kadaj.
Part of the "Compilation of Final Fantasy VII" which consists of Final Fantasy VII (1997), Last Order: Final Fantasy VII (2005), Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII (2006), Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII (2007) and Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII (2006).
The creators of the film had no prior knowledge of how to make a movie, so it was based on their knowledge of in-game movies.
The word Midgar is derived from Norse mythology; from the word 'Midgard'.
During Cloud's final fight with Sephiroth, Cloud uses what appears to be his final limit break OmniSlash, this is in fact a modified version called OmniSlash Mk. V.
In 'Advent Children Complete', there is a scene where Sephiroth impales Cloud on his katana; a reference to the famous scene in the game.
In the battle between Tifa and Loz, when Loz's cellphone rings, his ring tone is the music that is played after a victorious battle in the Final Fantasy games. Coincidentally, the music played during the battle is the Final Fantasy VII (1997) battle music reprized.
Kadaj's weapon is named the "Souba". Loz's weapon is named the "Dual Hound". Yazoo's weapon is named the "Velvet Nightmare". Cloud's sword is named the "First Tsurugi". His original "Buster Sword", given to him by Zack, is used to commemorate the spot Zack was killed. Cloud's bike is named "Fenrir".
The opening scene of the movie is the closing scene of the original video game.
Tifa's fighting style against Loz mirrors some of her Limit Breaks from the game. She opens up with Beat Rush, comes back with a Water Kick, backs him into the corner with Somersault, and ends with Meteor Strike.
According to director Tetsuya Nomura in the DVD Commentary, the original movie was only supposed to be twenty minutes. The details of the original story are sketchy, but from what little Nomura has said about it, all that is known is that it featured someone requesting a message to be sent to Cloud. The message is then relayed to Cloud through several children and although Nomura insisted that he very much liked the original script, he decided to make the project more grand in scope because early word of the project generated so much interest that he couldn't resist the demands for the film to be feature length.
