Default Why did Tifa blame Shinra for Sephiroth burning down Nibelheim?

That's one thing I don't understand because Sephiroth was acting on his own when burned the town down. Or was it the guilt by association.

Well, you know Seffiros went batshit and whatnot, but Tifa at the time didn't - all she knew at the time was that there's these Shinra operatives doing stuff, then one of them burns shit.

That, and also Shinra is responsible for the behavior of its employees, especially it's trumped-up posterboy.

Then again they did not take full responsibility when they covered the incident up.

For whatever reason she blames them, you gotta admit she's pretty much entirely right

Yeah, when you look at it in the grand scheme of things everything bad that happens in the Compilation and the OG is Shinra's and Hojo's fault.

Then again Shinra did burn down Barret's town which would mean even if Sephiroth didn't go psycho on Nibelheim they would probably have no qualms destroying the town if they felt that they were complacent in doing something against the company.

Cloud himself is living proof of that.

Sephiroth may have burned the town but Shinra basically finished what he started by sending Hojo and a small detachment of soldiers to round up any survivors (Zack, Cloud, and others) for his experiments. Zangan's letter mentions what happened.

I have to disagree with you there. It makes perfect sense that a 16 year old girl who sees a Shinra operative destroy her hometown and kill her father would blame Shinra for what happened. For all she knew, Shinra ordered him to do it.

Agreed, it makes sense why she blamed Shin-Ra. Even if she thought Zack was an okay guy, Sephiroth was the poster boy for the company and the one who did all that. It's not the same as if Zack had been the one to do it and Sephiroth went down fighting him instead. It would be assumed Sephiroth's actions were representative of Shin-Ra's wishes.

sephy slashing everybody in sight, burns the hometown, and cutting the living shizz out of a 15 year old girl and leaves her there dying on the cold steel floor and laughs in the upper room about some crap about his mother, and to you she should be thinking "Hm....maybe there's some hope in Shin-ra" when she's nearly drowning in her own sticky blood?

oh yeah and lets note that shin-ra doesnt even APOLOGIZE by AT LEAST saying "Sorry, that's not how SOLDIERs work all the time. We'll pay your ER bills tho."

.....????????????


THAT's bad writing.

heck its not because she's young. any person would hate shin-ra for that.

So, the main agreement here is Shinra didn't take repsonsiblity, chose to cover it up, and let Hojo the Terrible experiment on any survivors.

^^Let's see... everyone in Nibelhiem knows that Sephiroth works for Shin-Ra, and that Shin-Ra sent him to Nibelheim... If anything Tifa is being astute enough to know that Shin-Ra should have known better then to send a mental messed up employe to fix a problem. From her pov they should have known better then to send Sephiroth to do the job.

What do you expect from a company that has Hojo, a walking mix of complexes, as the head of its science division.

It isn't just Hojo. The entire ShinRa management board are a bunch of loony bastards. (Yes, that includes you, Reeve, with your stuffed robot cat-thing-whatever.)

The entire board is either evil, crazy, stupid, or any combination of the three.
