Have a fun/outgoing/self-assured main character
Stiff, cold, boring chick.

Main character makes her fall in love. Changes her into caring/loving. Main character hurt/injured/disappears. Makes her realize how much she's missing out on.

Becomes sweet and amazing chick. Goes and takes care of him. Fight final boss together, realize that they're meant to be together. Live happily ever after.

Have children, go shopping at the belt store for baby clothes.The end

I have to squint and look sideways to cram Tifa into that mold, and even then she doesn't fit very well (although maybe I just remember wrong; it's been a long time since I played FFVII).

Yuna was never cold, stiff, or boring, and was already caring and loving before Tidus entered her life. Tidus's influence helped to increase her independence and self confidence, and gave her the strength of conviction to defy a corrupt tradition.

So, um, no.

By the second half of the game, Tifa was nothing without Cloud. She herself said something in that regard in the game itself.

To be fair, same with Cloud who got his **** together through her help.

Similar situation in FFX where both leads helped and cared for each other.
Arguably, Tidus was more proactive, but I think there's no denying that he got more mature as the game went on. Now whether that was exclusively because of Yuna, might be up to debate.

Could not care less if Lightning is a man, woman or a sidekick. A lame charachter is lame.
