Tifa's fighting style, which she learned from Zangan, involves her feinting an initial attack to get behind the enemy and attack them again by surprise. While her post feint attack would have less of a reach than the initial attack, it allows Tifa to dodge attacks, disrupt the opponent's attempted blocks, and her attacks have a higher chance for critical hits after feinting. As a downside, Tifa is heavily a melee character that requires more tactics and analysis to land a hit.

But when push comes to shove, Tifa puts on her Premium Heart gloves, which increases Tifa's attack power by 7.6 and inflicts damage proportional to her limit gage. Her signature final attack is Final Heaven, charging energy into her fist before dashing at the opponent to deliver an explosive punch.

  • Tifa's fight with Yang drew considerable negativity with many claiming that the fight was rigged and that an underpowered Tifa lost because of ScrewAttack merging with RoosterTeeth. However, it has been stated by RoosterTeeth that they had no interest in who won the fight. Ben Singer later confirmed that the episode served in part as a promotion for RWBY V3, but says this did not effect who won. Whether it was rigged or not is still disputed and the episode is not fondly remember by many in the fandom, with various blogs and forums describing it as the worst episode and claiming they have 'correctly' done the math that disproves the outcome.
