Ever since she made her first appearance in the original 1997 Final Fantasy VII, Tifa has remained wildly popular among both devoted and casual fans alike.

In polls and lists, she is often ranked highly as a female video game character, drawing comparisons to Lara Croft from Tomb Raider as another example of a strong, independent, and attractive female character.

For example in 2000, GameSpot readers voted Tifa as the fifth-best female character in video games, with the publication’s editors in agreement with the results.
