In Final Fantasy VII it's revealed Cait Sith is actually

a robot controlled by someone in Shinra Headquarters.

As you've been there before, is there any clue to whom it actually is at any point?

  • Reeve Tuesti . . . . i bet he is a proffesional gamer if he can control that little robot against Sephiroth and win (in my playtrough) – Rusted_Silver Feb 4 '16 at 3:31
  • The game reveals this later on. – Panzercrisis Feb 4 '16 at 14:59

In Final Fantasy VII Cait Sith is a cat, riding a giant stuffed toy moogle, working as a fortune-teller in the Gold Saucer. His true identity is that of Reeve Tuesti's who controls Cait Sith remotely like a puppet. Even though Reeve is Shinra Electric Power Company's head of Urban Development he is interested in saving the Planet.

Cait Sith = Reeve Tuesti

Reeve is an Architect who designed the Mako reactors. He supports the cancellation of the Space Program following the crash in Rocket Town. He later supports the Turks when they briefly split from Shinra by using his puppet, Cait Sith to aid them.

The character of Cait Sith actually appears in several other entries in the Final Fantasy series, usually as just a cat, sometimes as a summon other times as an enemy.

    I find the phrasing a little weird. If I understand correctly, Cait Sith is the name of the cat. The cat is controlling a stuffed to moogle. But in reality the cat is a robot/something, who is remotely controlled by a human called Reeve Tuesti. Did I get it right? – Maurycy Feb 4 '16 at 11:24
  • @Colin: your link points to this question. I think it should be finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Cait_Sith_%28Final_Fantasy_VII%29 :) – Py. Feb 4 '16 at 12:09
  • @Py. Thanks for pointing that out. I have fixed it now. – Colin Feb 4 '16 at 22:17

If I remember correctly, there is a bit of dialogue where Barret identifies Cait Sith's true identity when he says something like

You're caught Reeve.

I believe there are a few other hints dropped, but it has been a while since I played through FF7

    I just played through it again a month or so ago, and although I already knew the answer ahead of time, I thought the game made it pretty dang explicit at the end of Disc 2. – CloudyMusic Feb 4 '16 at 0:26
  • @CloudyMusic I originally played it when it released, and haven't played since. Yesterday while playing he revealed himself as a spy but I couldn't recall 'who' he was. Hence why I thought I'd ask =) – djsmiley2kStaysInside Feb 4 '16 at 10:37
