Victory poses[]

  • Cloud pumps his fist twice, spins his sword in one hand, and then places it on his back.
  • Barret squats, stands and punches the air with his normal hand. His victory pose loops.
  • Tifa stretches her arms and back.
  • Aeris brushes down her clothes, smooths back her hair, and bows with her hand over her heart.
  • Red XIII scratches himself behind an ear, then stands up on his hind legs. His victory pose loops.
  • Yuffie jumps twice while holding her weapon above her head, then quickly spins around on one leg. Her victory pose loops.
  • Cait Sith's oversized moogle doll claps its arms above its head; Cait Sith hops back and forth between claps. His victory pose loops.
  • Vincent spins his gun a few times before returning it to its holster.
  • Cid bends down then takes a smoke.
  • Sephiroth swings Masamune in front of him twice, flips it over in his hand, and slides it curve-up against his waist so the hilt rests at his side and the blade faces up at an angle behind him.

If a character is in Frog status at the end of the battle, they hop once, then backflip in a looping victory pose.

When victory poses are not used[]

There are a number of circumstances in which the party will not perform their victory pose and in these scenarios the "Victory Fanfare" will not play. The party will not pose after defeating Reno at the Sector 7 Plate Support tower. Cloud will not pose after defeating Rufus. Barret will not pose after defeating Dyne. The party will not pose after defeating Jenova∙LIFE. Yuffie will not pose after defeating Godo. The party will not pose after defeating the two Submarine Crew enemies before boarding the submarine. The party will not pose after defeating enemies on the Coal Train across Mt. Corel. The party will not pose after defeating the Turks in the Sector 8 tunnels beneath Midgar or after defeating the Proud Clod.

None of Vincent'sLimit Break transformations have victory poses, and will continue to use their battle animation after a victory.

Behind the scenes[]

In the 1996 demo version, the characters perform the victory pose toward whatever direction they were facing when the battle ended.

During the minigame in which Cloud poses as a Shinra soldier, he teaches two other Shinra soldiers his victory pose. It is then designated as the "special" for the sendoff of Rufus Shinra and earns the player a large point bonus if executed correctly with Cloud facing the correct direction. Cloud's victory pose especially has become iconic. Lightningwill perform it in the SOLDIER 1st Class garb in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. Zack performs it after a battle in Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- if he has 100% health. In Kingdom Hearts, whenever Sora wins a battle in the Coliseum, he will perform either Squall's, Cloud's or Zell's victory pose. In Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Sora will perform Cloud's victory pose. In Final Fantasy VII Remake, Cloud performs his victory pose on the Corneo Colosseum and the Shinra Combat Simulator.

Not just speculating or hoping. The evidence is in the trailer, and after some thought it makes sense.

  • In-game graphics and model used for scene despite plenty of opportunity for rendered CG
  • Sephiroth pose is spot-on with the infamous scene (Admittedly could be a taunt pose)
  • Scene uses high-fidelity flame graphics among a pitch-black background. IIRC there's nothing else like this in the current game.
  • Following scene has a burning background, but graphically less impressive flames engulfing rubble.
  • The lighting in both scenes is clearly completely different, meaning the first scene is clearly unique.
That begs the obvious question: Why design a specific in-game scene just for that moment instead of rendered CG? Because it's actually in the game.

What a clean-looking mock-up. We haven't had a unique-looking victory screen since Joker so it would be nice if we got another with Sephiroth here.

Well @BakonBitz , I don't think there's an "if". It IS his victory screen. Banking on it.

Yeah, it does look rather unique, you make a good point that they would've just made it CG otherwise.

Ooh, that looks so good. Even better than Joker’s.

Hey, I know I call myself a gamer, but that doesn't mean I'm a competent one.

Well clearly it's real. We all saw it in the trailer. Unless it was actually all just a dream...

TC is trying way too hard. You have to be more subtle with your initial trolling effort, then let it escalate. Look at what saLUEtes does and copy him. - arleas

While unrelated, I also suspect Sephiroth's Final Smash WILL be

While unrelated, I also suspect Sephiroth's Final Smash WILL be at least 30 seconds long, if not an entire minute. All players will simply have the option of pressing a button to cancel the rest of the animation after the first 7 seconds.
That's genius

Goddamn, this victory screen would be f***ing amazing.

Rip & Tear

There's no reason they couldn't have just made that part in-game as transition to the gameplay segment, but it could be the victory screen and would look amazing.

As game developers,our work is special. All of us here can put smiles on very many people's faces with our work.

I know it's in Japanese but what is he saying? Has anyone translated this? Thanks lol

Smash mains: Sephiroth (long-time most-wanted character), Terry, Ridley
The Official Canadian Luigi of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate board

In the one where he looks directly at the camera and stays in place, he says ""I will usher you as many times as you want." When he swings his sword, he says "Remember me through your pain." Both could be seen as potential callbacks to Dissidia. Also, sometimes he will say "I will never be a memory" when facing Cloud, referencing Advent Children.

My name is Mary. Right now I am... RIGHT BEHIND YOU!

That's really cool, thank you! I appreciate more and more how Sephiroth was implemented into the game when I read about things like this lol, I say he was implemented very well

Smash Ultimate Victory Screens, but they are FANMADE (100K Special!)

Sephiroth's victory animation with the fiery background surprisingly loads the fastest in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate — More useless facts by PJiggles

It's been some time since PJiggles released a video from his "Useless Smash Facts" series. Since the last time, both Sephiroth and Pyra & Mythra have been released as DLC challengers.

As such, PJiggles' most recent video puts quite a bit of emphasis on useless facts regarding these new releases. Did you know that the victory screen will load faster if Sephiroth wins a match as opposed to any other character in the game?

Like most other characters, Sephiroth has three different victory animation screens. However, instead of using the same universal assets, the background on Sephiroth's win screen has been set ablaze — which serves as a tribute to a certain scene in Final Fantasy 7.

PJiggles also takes some time to talk about the censorship for Pyra & Mythra. The two end up showing a lot more skin in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 than in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Notably, Pyra's Spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate before her release was ironically less censored after she became a character. Mythra, on the other hand, always had her cleavage and legs covered up. This ended up becoming a DLC costume for Mythra in Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

What's also interesting is how certain narrator voice clips are different between English and Japanese versions despite them both saying the exact same thing. In some cases, they're actually the exact same but the Japanese versions are louder.

Hear the latest set of Useless Smash Facts in Pjiggles' video below:


Victory screen sephiroth

Ever since the explosion of various Animal Crossing and DOOM crossover memes in 2020, fans have been messing around with numerous depictions of Isabelle’s hidden penchant for violence. While the Doom Slayer and Isabelle have yet to officially cross paths, the recent addition of Sephiroth to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has spurred one fan to explore Isabelle’s scarier side yet again!

As you can see below, a 3D animator by the name of Sourcy recently shared their recreation of Sephiroth’s unique Super Smash Bros. victory screen – where he walks off into a flaming background. In Sephiroth’s place, however, is none other than Isabelle with a dark and frightening glare instead!

Here’s the original Sephiroth victory screen, for comparison:

All in all, it looks like the deluge of menacing Isabelle memes is far from over! We’ll just have to wait and see what other macabre franchises fans decide to mix up the lovable secretary with in the future.

  • Up: Banjo walks in place briefly before bowing twice, saying "Guh-Huh!" both times, ending with Kazooie poking out of his backpack. The animation is almost identical to that seen when all 10 Jiggies in a world are collected or when a Note Door is unlocked in Banjo-Kazooie.
  • Right: Both dance around while playing their respective instruments, and then end in a pose referencing the ending of Banjo-Kazooie's intro movie. Their poses are also identical to the ones they assume in their reveal trailer (save for Kazooie's expression).

  • Right: Bayonetta steps back and sticks up her guns, pirouettes like a ballerina, then aims her guns to the right with a pose, saying "That all you got?" (Alruna; "全力を見せてよ", Show me your full power.) or "You're making it easy." (Rakshasa; "楽勝ね", Too easy.).

Combines their win quote after a battle with the game over screen, where all four main Relics are planted on the ground.
  • Right: With the Sword of the Creator in its whip form, Byleth swings it around the front of his body in a circular motion, saying "No hesitation!" After striking the ground, the sword reverts back to its original form, with Byleth posing with it held in a standard grip. Uses the quote from his critical hit activation.

All of Inkling's animations are based on the victory poses when using particular weapons in Splatoon and its sequel. The animations vary between female and male costumes.

  • Left: Jumps for joy twice, spins around, and poses with the Splattershot. Based on the victory animation when using a Shooter-type weapon in Splatoon 2.

  • Up: Sways the Splat Roller from side to side, before striking a pose while resting the Roller's handle against a shoulder. This victory pose combines the victory animations in Splatoon and Splatoon 2 when the Inkling uses a Roller-type weapon. The male Inkling rests his hand on his hip.

  • SSBUJokerVictory2.gif
  • SSBUJokerVictory4.gif

In all three of his victory poses, the transition to the victory screen will showcase a puff of cartoony smoke with star decals, and the ending screen will always result in Joker moving continuously to the left with the results background being dimmed down, replicating the victory screen from Persona 5. Upon accessing the results screen, Joker will say "Begone," "Nice," or "Hah!". If there are three or more human players, the color scheme will match the player's port (CPUs and amiibos are always red). In Team Battles, the color will match the player's team color. If Joker wins on Mementos, the color of the victory screen will match the color of the stage, and the victory music will be replaced with the corresponding victory fanfare from the game Mementos' design is currently derived from.

  • Left: Morgana happily bounces around Joker. Joker gestures to Morgana before running towards the left.
  • Up: Joker scratches his head as Morgana, transformed as the Morganamobile, drives up next to Joker, picks him up, and drives towards the left. The head-scratching animation is Joker's victory animation if he is the only member of his party remaining in Persona 5. The Morganamobile is the victory screen when winning a match in Mementos.
  • Right: Morgana turns dramatically toward the screen, which ends up hitting him in the face. Joker gestures to Morgana before running towards the left.
  • Special: If Joker wins a Stock or Stamina match with All-Out Attack, the match will conclude on the splash screen without returning to gameplay, and this will persist into the victory screen, just like in Persona 5.
  • Team: If Joker is in a Team Battle and someone else poses in front, he will perform an exclusive animation where he tightens his glove and maintains a stance with his knife, although both of these are ported directly from his in-game up taunt and idle animation respectively. If he poses in front, none of his teammates will be seen.
