Description Edit | History

"Barret Wallace (バレット・ウォーレス, Baretto Wōresu) is a player character in Square Enix's role playing game Final Fantasy VII. Created by character designer Tetsuya Nomura, he has since appeared in the CGI film sequel, Final Fantasy VII Advent Children as well as other games and media in the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII series. As of Advent Children, Barret is voiced by Masahiro Kobayashi in Japanese and Beau Billingslea in English localizations.

Barret is first introduced in Final Fantasy VII as a terrorist, leading the group "AVALANCHE" to bomb power plants in the fictional city of Midgar to avenge the losses dealt him by the city's ruling company, Shinra, under the pretense of saving the planet. As the story progresses, Barret re-examines his efforts and focuses AVALANCHE's to pursuing villain Sephiroth to protect the planet and the future of his adopted daughter, Marlene. Elements of the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII would later expand upon his character, detailing the character's history before and after the events of the original game.

The first black playable character in the Final Fantasy series, Barret's portrayal through his appearance and speech has been heavily compared to that of actor Mr. T, earning praise for this aspect but also heavy criticism and accusations of being a racist presentation of black people by sources such as IGN. In contrast, others have defended the character's positive aspects, and publications such as Edge have described the character as bringing something new to the series."
