Murasame also appears in FFVII, as one of Cloud's weapons.

See, I'm in a different boat when it comes to FFVII. I really enjoyed the beginning of the game, but once I left Midgar I felt detached. Suddenly, the world wasn't this horribly grimy place and the efforts AVALANCHE put into destroying the Mako Reactors seemed pointless since...well, the world seemed fine. I have played through the game twice but I always quit playing at the same spot: Before the very end of the game, after completing all of the sidequests sans Ruby and Emerald Weapons.
I almost included Odin from FFVIII as a bad-ass, but then I remembered he gets killed like a bitch in the fourth Seifer fight. It was really stupid and ruined that summon for me. (Gilgamesh wasn't nearly as cool in that game).
Love me some FF7, love the story, love the characters, love the gameplay. May be because it comes from a time when I was hyped up on Japanese culture and Manga, ate Akira for breakfast, Ghost in the Shell for lunch. Now not so much, not at all in fact.
Sephiroth because of the dated graphics does look like an evil chuckie doll now though.
I like FFVI better, and FFX better than VII.

As a character, he gets right on my tits, but there's no denying that it's pretty badass to routinely climb out of hell, fight monolithic adversaries, and defy fate itself all for the sake of satiating a desire for vengeance.
4) Isaac Clarke
He turns up on a mysterious ship *SPOILERS* having already lost touch with his sanity */SPOILERS* and proceeds to cut a bloody, fuck-off trail through an army of murderous, reanimated, sword-limbed bastards. What does he do this with? The contents of a space shed. That's badass.
And he can punch limbs off of bodies...
A nobleman brought to an untimely end, Kain is resurrected as a vampire who eventually becomes king of Nosgoth. But what use is a dead kingdom? Despite being repeatedly told that his sacrifice would bring harmony back to Nosgoth, Kain ceaselessly searches for a way to have his cake and eat it, creating an uncontrollable weapon in an effort to defy fate. Defying fate (thereby being immediately badass), fighting an Elder God (thereby being all the more badass), all so that you can rule over a living kingdom is pretty badass.
And the first time I saw him, he ripped the bones out of Raziel's wings. Badass.
2) Solid Motherfucking Snake
He's so badass, his name's a euphamism for an erection (no, not Dave).
When atop MG Arsenal in his MG Ray, Liquid jumped into the river - what did a handcuffed Snake do? Broke the cuffs and jumped in after him.
When faced with an invisible, sword wielding, cyber-ninja, what did Snake do? Punched him in his tits.
When faced with a nuclear-equipped, bipedal, mechanical t-rex he shot the fuck out of it.
When a powerful psychic took over him, what did he do? Changed the controller's port!
Everything involving Solid Snake seems to be against him, from the state of the world to his own genetics. He is, in both senses, old before his time. But he trudges on through it all, knowing that he's the man to get shit done, knowing that the world is resting on his shoulders. And he never once pussies out and starts crying like Jack Bauer.
1) Grey Fox
His final speech is the first speech I remember being moved by, and it's brilliant even now. Aside from that, he's badass for reasons that have been covered.

It seems it's been that way forever.
So if you don't eat pigs and we don't eat pigs,
Why not not eat pigs together?

Still no reason to dislike the game. I find Otacon in the Metal Gear games even more embarassing especially in MGS 2 but thats no reason to hate on the game.
