What about Sephiroth, if he was ever given a chance at him? Strife is such a personal type villain. Whatever he feels would hurt more is what he would end up doing.

Which is an unfortunate side effect of the fact that he was created to take all the shit that Cloud couldn't handle anymore. Though Cloud never had a chance to grow a backbone, Strife has absolutely no idea of anything good that could happen.

In that way, I find him a most pitiable creature. You can still pity someone while accepting the danger that he represents.

One person, acting soon enough, could have stopped a great deal of this. Just someone caring enough to protect the kid, would probably have changed some of the events. I don't know what might have happened as a result of this with the Hojo mess, I am not sure.

yeah, I agree, by the time Cloud had come through basic, or even entered into the picture for Zack, it was already too late. It might have been possible for Zack to help him, but it seems like the few times Zack came into close contact with Cloud, there was no time, and nothing he could have done. In fact, the first 'time' they may have had together was when they were thrown together I the lab, and by the, it was definitely too late. Strife had hardened into a completely separate being from Cloud.

Strife is certainly wants to hurt Sephiroth as much as possible, but he's very leery of a direct confrontation. Although Strife absolutely hates Sephiroth and desperately wants to destroy him, Strife is also frankly terrified of Sephiroth, which isn't the case with anyone else. Naturally Strife refuses to admit he's scared, even to himself.

Even in that first full manifestation of Strife, when he basically trashed everyone's (including Sephiroth's) butt, that was a surprise attack. Strife hit hard and left fast. So for the moment, Strife will avoid being in close proximity with Sephiroth, and attack other targets.

Why is Strife so frightened about Sephiroth? Strife knows more about Sephiroth's true abilities than anyone -- perhaps even more than the current sane Sephiroth. While Strife is confident that he's physically stronger than Sephiroth, he's still frantic to avoid situations that would leave him vulnerable to Sephiroth's true powers.

Of course Strife will adamantly deny all of this. ^_-
