I saw somewhere that it's possible to get Aeris back at the end of FFVII somehow, but i never actually put the effort into doing it. If anyone has done it or has knowledge of how to do it, post it here so i can maybe try it. Thanks!
Hardly a revival is it? more like tricking the game to thinking you've got people on your side who should either be dead or deserve their heads mutilated.As a matter of fact, you can actually revive Aries. It is possible! You can also have Sephiroth as a member of your party as well. Sounds faintly ludicrous, but it’s true. All you need is an Explorer cheat-cartridge. After she dies, simply input the correct code and you can have Aries in your party again – easy as that.
Ugh-- no. No. Aeris is dead. Gone. Game over. Sorry.
This whole nonsense was fueled by a comment that is made near the "this guy are sick" NPC, a programming glitch in the church post-death and the fact that the USA FFVII was cut and altered from the original to meet deadlines. The fact that she had a final limit break, ultimate weapon that was pain in the ass to get, said she'd see Cloud again, blah blah blah.
The biggest rumor was that if you waited until Aeris learned of her roots as an Ancient and returned with the key to Midgar (found in Bone Village) and did -any number of things- involving the Kalm traveler you could revive her.

i have heard this rumor, but as has been said it is all a lie.
the only thing that actually supports the fact that Aerith was supposed to be alive longer than she was is this:
-lines in the snowy mountain after the snowboarding game things (on your way to north cave for the first time) in the second disk.
-a final limit break that is almost impossible to get on the first disk due to lack of knowledge
-a final weapon that is weaker than her other weapons, and a final weapon with materia growth
-Sephiroth not wearing gloves when he kills her but then magically having them on in the short cut scene afterwards
-coding that shows Sephiroth falling from his materia prison getting ready to stab Aerith.
-coding that shows branches (see above bullet) behind Sephiroth before Aerith gets stabbed
-an extra area in the Northern Crator with Aerith's music playing(not in the Japanese game nor PAL version; was discovered using the Jenova editing program); area was called the Great Cave/Cavern
Besides I like the fact that Aries dies. Not because I didn't like her but it just adds more to the story. It gives Cloud even more of a reason for revenge, which would just be lost if you could revive her latter in the game.
The US version was not altered. It was added to. The rumor arose out of all the junk data that was located in the original game that had no explainable purpose, and the originator of the rumor admitted he was pulling the collective leg of the internet.
A completely generic set of lines, all told.
But which you can get on the first disc. The others take much longer or insane effort to acquire.
How is this evidence that she was supposed to live longer?
The entire scene is replete with continuity errors, like Aerith's ribbon.
This is the first I've heard of this. I know about the hidden background, but not about this coding. Got a source?
Again, 'coding'? Source?
Go go mighty junk data! Games often have junk and dummy data floating about. While 'incomplete' games are lousy with the stuff (see Saga Frontier), games with junk data aren't always incomplete.
It's not like he needed more of a reason. His mom, his hometown, losing 5 years of his life, being used as a puppet, etc. Aerith was a reason for most of the rest of the party to want revenge against Sephy, but Cloud (Tifa too) had more than enough reason without it.
This brings back memories! ah the speculation!
I remember back when I first played thru ff7 and there were tons of rumors floating about
that site is my source for all rumors and information about Final Fantasy 7(other than knowledge i have naturally) .
there are numerous areas of the site that will explain my post, also if you search through the "things we werent supposed to know" area of the stie (an entire area dedicated to the Aerith revival topic[4 parts]), it will show screen shots, and pictures of the things i tried to convey.
Yet it doesn't show that she was supposed to live longer, any more than Cid, Cait, Vincent, and Yuffie having lines in Midgar means they were supposed to be playable from the start of the game.as for Aerith having a generic set of lines, the lines that she utters are of special circumstances. no other character utters her exact phrases, which i found out through many trials and a good reset button.
Do your other sources say anything particularly different?side note:
this site is not my only source, i will provide others on request.
Actually, it is impossible, in the english release. Square removed the cave where you go to revive her when they released the game for us.
And yet, none of that is anything more than wild speculation, which you have compounded further. Aerith's theme is insufficient to connect this junk data to 'she was gonna die here', and their analysis of the FMV is absurd. We have no reason to think the cieling of the well lit pedastal area looks any different than shown in the FMV, and the rest of the FMV very clearly shows the forgotten capital as the setting. FMVs by their nature, must be decided rather early on given how time intensive they are, which is why Vincent and Yuffie aren't in any FMVs.
IF at any time there was a plan to axe Aerith elsewhere than the forgotten capital, they nixed it immediately.

And would you like to defend your claim that things were removed for FF7US, as opposed to being added, as they actually were?
No method to revive Aerith exists in the Japanese, English, PAL, or International releases of FF7.
lol, well we will have to agree to not see eye to eye on any part of this topic, which thanks to us, is horribly OFF topic.
