He went rogue/insane because of the experiments that were performed on him, and because he found his "mother" Jenova ( not his real mother ) in an experimental pod chamber. Not really a bad reason, is it ?
I think it's something we justify on the generalized way. And that makes us think like that. We have to consider things from his POV. I am not justifying his action. It seems like a good plot though, he's just portrayed evil in it.

Well, we can't deny that Sephiroth was one of the best villains from Final Fantasy series. So when we say "villains" people tend to think that there are so evil. But I do believe that there's a story behind every person sadly Sephiroth is one of them because he was a product of an experiment. It affects him from being different to others he has a different personality.

He went rogue because he found out he was a result of a genetic experiment. How would you have felt about the world and life in general, if you had been infused with Jenova cells before birth, while still in the womb? He realized his was a creature designed in a laboratory. So, you're saying that a human being, regardless of how strong he was mentally, is not allowed to experience some kind of a personal/psychological breakdown after he found out his not human after at all?
Yep that's the point. So technically he is not vilian. He's just behaving the natural way people behave when they feel like played. I think people learn from the experience they have. And that's what I have noticed that sepiroth is just normal. Just want to take vengeance.

I think he is a bit misunderstood. He just wanted to be with his mom. I think Sephiroth would be viewed better concerning story development if we saw some more of him as a person before he went slightly off the deep end.

The only thing that Sephiroth cared about was his mother so anyone that comes between him and his agenda has to die which I guess is why he is evil.

I for a long time believed that Sephiroth was one of the victims in the game and that Jenova was the cause of all his actions. There are several theories and arguments made that point to Sephiroth being just a man with a broken mind. I believed that till I read an article from the site FF7 Citadel. It explained how Jenova was not nearly smart enough to have hatched the plan to absorb the life stream. As well as arguments that prove Jenova's actions to be strange unless Sephiroth had control. I'm a new member so I'm unable to post links. Could someone else post it? The site is FF7 Citadel and the theory is called 'Villain Theory: Great Sephiroth'.

It's a great theory with many valid points. So do you think Sephiroth was actually evil? Did this theory change your mind? Or do you have counter-arguments that disprove this theory?

Hi everyone. To put it simply. The fear factor. Sephiroth had this creepy fear factor about him. That was probably due to his music and in the strange things he said. While he did prove to be evil in every form. He made most people laugh more than anything. With his laugh, classic lines, and catchy song. There is a huge difference between being evil in action and in looks.

I think the number one problem with Sephiroth, is lack of impulse control. As a soldier, killing people comes with job so I don't think that necessarily makes him evil.

He killed many innocent people and he killed Aerith a lovely girl who is full of hopes and dreams. Terra from VI was enslaved and discriminated all her life and she had been through worst than Sepiroth and she never resorted to mass murdering people.
