Pretty boy? check.
Oversized weapon? check.
Pseudo-tragic background? check.
Spends most of the game "acting cool"? check.
Also, notice how he doesn't say anything right when you're going to fight him, that makes him a really effective and complex antagonist doesn't it? oh wait it doesn't.
And yes, Kefka was a great villain, and so was Kuja (despite being a trap), FF9 did much better than FF7 when it came down to having a "complex" main antagonist.
By the way, Advent Children is completely horrible, at least FF7 was half-decent until the end of the first disc, AC on the other hand was just a bunch of pretty graphics thrown together to make a poor, ridiculous story.
By the way, Kefka had a great theme song, and that's not even counting Dancing Mad, but Nobuo Uematsu gets WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too much credit.
I agree with pretty much everything you said there. But at least Sephiroth wasn't as bad as Ultimecia. I hope Sephiroth goes to hell and have Ultros ass rape him for all eternity. Speaking of Ultros, FFVI and FFX are my favorite FF games.
