|~ President Shinra|
President Shinra is the overarching antagonist of Final Fantasy VII Remake, appearing as the central antagonist of its first episode.
The corrupt leader of Shinra Inc., Shinra rules the world with an iron-fist, polluting the planet and oppressing it’s inhabitants. Unlike his original counterpart, Shinra takes a more direct and villainous role in the remake, serving as a more imposing threat to Avalanche rather than appearing as a minor character.
In Final Fantasy VII Remake, he was voiced by the late Genzō Wakayama in Japanese and James Horan in English.
President Shinra is a light-haired man with pale skin and dresses in black clothes.
Powers and Abilities
President Shinra's personal weapon of choice is a gun. Other than that, Shinra appears to posses no meaningful physical or magical abilities.
Shinra plays more of a directly villainous role in this retelling, in which he is the secondary antagonist. Here, he is noticeably more of a direct threat to Avalanche, denouncing them as Wutai-funded terrorists in the effort to further ensure the loyalty of Midgar's citizen to Shinra, Inc. The President later personally orders the targeted assassination of Cloud's party via airstrike during Avalanche's bombing of Mako Reactor 5.
After ordering an overseeing the destruction of Sector 7 out of spiteful revenge, President Shinra discusses his plan of reshaping Midgar with his board of directors via the aid of the captured Aerith, the last of the Cetra. Shinra gives permission to Professor Hojo to do what he pleases with the Cetra, as long as he is able to provide results.
Much like in the original game, Cloud and his party are brought before the president after they attempt to rescue Aerith. However, in the remake, Shinra manages to avoid Sephiroth's initial attack, instead managing to escape only to end up in the custody of Avalanche. Barret manhandles Shinra, determined in making him confess the wrongdoings of Shinra, Inc and disprove the Wutai-Avalanche alliance.
Shinra refuses and instead manages to hold Barret at gunpoint, where he callous voices his disregard for morality and lack of remorse, scoffing that his hostage's determination to "save the planet" from Shinra is weak if he is only asking him to clear Avalanche's name over stopping all mako production. President Shinra is killed when Sephiroth stabs him from behind.
- Unlike in the original game, he is killed onscreen. In both versions, he is killed by Sephiroth via stabbing.
- He wields a golden gun, which is similar to the Bond villain, Francisco Scaramanga from The Man With The Golden Gun.
- He is 67 years old.
