|~ Vincent Valentine|
Vincent Valentine is an optional playable character in Final Fantasy VII and the main protagonist of Dirge of Cerberus - Final Fantasy VII. A former Turk with a mysterious past, Vincent's secrets tie him directly to several of the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII's main antagonists.
Vincent wields handguns in battle and his Limit Breaks cause him to shapeshift as a result of the experiments Professor Hojo performed on him. Since his introduction, Vincent has become one of the most popular characters in the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII.

Even after thirty years of sleep, he is still able to fight on par with the greatest warriors on the planet such as Cloud Strife, Sephiroth, and his other allies.
Weaknesses: Transformations have a time limit, some transformations are berserkers and he has limited control over them. His guns require ammo and thus he needs to reload from time to time.
- Galian Beast: Transforms Vincent into a feral bipedal creature with increased strength and the ability to shoot energy blasts.
- Chaos: Vincent's most powerful transformation by far. Transforms Vincent into a winged demonic creature that can fly, has increased speed and power and emits a crimson like energy that protects him from most attacks. While in this form, Vincent wields his strongest weapon, the Death Penalty, a powerful hand cannon that fires powerful beams that deal massive damage to all foes but only has a magazine size of six rounds before requiring reloading.
Key: Base | Chaos Form | Summons
Other: This is the canon version of Vincent and his equipment is largely based around the weapons and abilities he uses in Dirge of Cerberus.
- Little canon information is available in regards to which summons the party may or may not possess (much like with magic materia), thus it is up to the thread maker to specify what sort of materia, if any, Vincent has at his disposal at the start of a match.
