Trivia[edit]

  • Prior to the version 10.0.0 update, both of Cloud's spirits were listed as from FINAL FANTASY VII. This was changed to list them as part of the FINAL FANTASY Series.
  • Version 10.1.0 added a new fighter spirit for Cloud's default costume, using his artwork from Final Fantasy VII; previously, only his Ultimate artwork was available. This makes him the first fighter to have his fighter spirit artwork updated.
  • Final Fantasy is the only series represented by a fighter not to have any spirits besides fighter spirits in the base game.
    • Despite several Final Fantasy summon characters appearing on Midgar, their nature as special 2D sprites, and their other role as profile pictures in the previous game, they do not have spirits in the base game. Two of the Midgar summons, Ifrit and Bahamut ZERO, would later receive Spirits in version 10.1.0, but Ramuh, Leviathan, and Odin still do not have them. Oddly, Shiva, though a recurring summon in Final Fantasy, has her own Spirit, despite not appearing on Midgar.
  • Final Fantasy and ARMS are the only playable universes with spirits in the base game to have more DLC spirits than base game spirits.
  • The Tifa, Barret, and Aerith spirit battles use their respective Mii Fighter designs that were previously seen in promotional material, making them the first Mii Fighter spirit battles that do not use the default designs. For Tifa and Barret, this holds true even if their respective Mii costumes are not downloaded, as they use alternate outfits; for Aerith, she is replaced with Zelda.
    • Unique Mii designs are also used to represent Biggs, Wedge, and Jessie in Barret's spirit battle, as well as the Turks in their shared spirit battle with Rufus.
  • Final Fantasy, ARMS, and Minecraft are the only universes introduced as DLC to not have all their spirit battles use songs from the universe (not counting Fatal Fury, whose songs from non-Fatal Fury series are still grouped under Fatal Fury in the Sound Test).
  • Curiously, none of the spirit battles added in version 10.1.0 feature Sephiroth as puppet fighters, making the series one of the three playable universes to not feature all playable characters from the series in their spirit battles with the others being Mario and Fatal Fury.
  • None of the spirit battles added in version 10.1.0 feature Northern Cave as a stage, making it the only Challenger Pack to not feature its new stage with its corresponding spirits.
