Symbolism can be manipulated to support anything.
It can, but it’s the arguments behind the symbolism which makes it a more reliable truth.
"Only death awaits you all. But do not fear. For it is through death that a new spirit energy is born. Soon, you will live again as a part of me." He's claiming Cloud will die and be apart of him when he fuses with the lifestream.
No, actually he’s claiming that they will all die. “Only death await you all
”. You can use this in a theory that claims that all the ff7 characters are dead
but for this purpose it’s a weaker argument. A threat from the main villain of the game that “YOU WILL ALL DIE!” is not uncommon in lots of video games, and it’s a pretty weak argument to say that this means that Cloud is already dead.
When Cloud fights Jenova Death, it signifies the death of his consciousness. Mako poisoning destroys his last conscious thoughts on Gaia and leaves Cloud as an empty shell.
The party members fight Jenova Birth, and Jenova Life also, after Cloud gets stabbed by Sephiroth. Now you’re just picking different parts of the game that have to do with the theme of death (death being a popular theme in a lot of video games) and backing up the fact that it could reflect that the main character is dead.
EDIT: I'm sure you can take some screen shots and argue that Cloud is dead, then start cloudsdead.com. But before doing so you'd have to find *good* arguments to support your theory.
Seeing as Squall is from SeeD, she figures she might as well interrogate him. Ultimecia doesn't realize that the one she's reviving is the one who's supposed to defeat her.
But that doesn’t explain why she would revive Squall. She has 3 other SeeDs to interrogate. Why pick Squall? He’s just another one of the SeeDs to her. Like you said, all she knows is that a bunch of SeeDs are going to kill her, but she can’t differentiate one SeeD from another.
She simply knows Squall attacks her head-on and from what it appears he's bold enough to lead the strike against her
Oh, that's why she revived Squall. So she knows he’s one of the more fierce and dangerous members who is the most likely (so far) to kill her?
And she knows that Squall, being bold and all, attacking her head-on, would probably be the hardest to get answers from? I mean, look at Selphie. She doesn't look like she'd last 2 minutes.
I don't know why exactly she interrogates Squall, but she doesn't know anything about the SeeD so she can't exactly designate who to torture or who not to. Best off just interrogating the apparent leader of the assassination attempt.
She could have interrogated the 3 others first, then revive Squall to interrogate if they weren’t able to get anything out of them.
Weird things (moombas.... NORG.....) happening =/= Squall dying.
It’s not so much the fact that Moombas are weird. It’s the fact that they are lion-type animals. They argue that the integration of Moombas in this game is to contribute to their proof that Squall might as well just be "dreaming" about all this. Squall likes lion for their courage and strength, he has a particular fondness of them, and the fact that there are lions after his "death" could symbolize that this is all in his mind.
If the sky turned green tomorrow, it does not mean that I've died.
No, but you should start wondering what’s wrong with you.
If you want some lols, post the squallisdead theory on gamefaqs =P. from what i seen when looking for TT help, anyone who mentions Squallisdead get flamed like hell and referred back to the other 15 topics about it. Best trolling tool for the FF8 gamefaqs board ever.
Why on Earth would I want to do that? Are you a troll OutFoxxed?
I made sure that there was no such topic on the qhimms before posting it, thank you.
