Is Red XIII from Final Fantasy VII Rebirth a cat or dog?



With the release of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, an old debate involving Red XIII has resurfaced on the internet. But after all, would the playable character be a dog or a cat?

On Reddit, fans of the mutant animal gathered to determine which species would most resemble it. According to part of the community, Red XIII has a “Lion King vibe”, but “sometimes acts like a dog too”.

There is a consensus that the Final Fantasy VII Rebirth character is an “unknown species” and just “a good boy”. This way, he would not be in “neither of the two” groups, even though he howls like a dog and shows identity behaviors.

However, the book that accompanies the film Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children may have ended the discussion once and for all. At the time, the game's director, Tetsuya Nomura, stated that Red XIII is a “kind of feline” and would be part of the cat group.

When we were working on a game called Parasite Eve, I thought it would be fun to create a game without any human characters and I came up with the idea of ​​a cat riding a dog to go on a mission. The concept of Cait Sith riding Red XIII in this movie really came from this idea.

The idea was that the animals would wake up one day and discover that their master had disappeared, so the aim of the game was that these animals would go on a journey in search of their master. But I think since Red XIII is a species of feline, in this case it would actually be a cat riding a cat.
