What are primary uses and stat advantages of each character?

In terms of base stats, what is the primary value of each team member (which one has the highest stats in what areas)? What does this mean in terms of use? (partial to magic vs might etc)

Answer

The system is actually quite complex, so if you want a full understanding of it, I’m just going to refer you to TFergusson’s Party Mechanics Guide, section 1.4 has all the details.

If you just want a general idea though, here’s a table that I pulled out of that guide, summing up each character’s “grade” in each stat. The numbers range from 0-29, and lower numbers represent larger gains.

             Str   Vit   Mag   Spr   Dex
=================================================
     Cloud     1     6     3     4    26
    Barret     5     2    18    14    29
      Tifa     6    18    16     9    25
     Aeris    23    20     0     1    28
       Red    12    11    13     9    23
    Yuffie    16    19    11    10    24
 Cait Sith    19    22     6     4    28
   Vincent    21    22     6     4    28
       Cid    11     7    17    15    27
