Red XIII, real name Nanaki, is a red lion or wolf-like beast and one of the playable characters in Final Fantasy VII. Red XIII was the name he received as a specimen designation while held captive and experimented upon by Professor Hojo. Even though he is 48 years old, his age is comparable to around 15 to 16-year-old human by his long-lived species' standards.
Red XIII is a quadrupedal animal with thick dark red and orange fur and a thin brown mane extending partway down his back. His right eye is scarred, and the remaining eye is ochre in color. He is adorned with a variety of beads, earrings and feathers around his head, with golden pastern braces and brands on his legs. One of these brands is the roman numeral "XIII", hence his codename. He also has a flaming tail.
His alternate costume resembles his father, Seto. His fur turns a stone blue and the braces and brands are removed in place of arrows sticking out of him and a new, sun-shaped brand along his leg. The flame on his tail is also changed to look more stone-like and a similar blue.
His third costume, Moomba, resemble the creatures of the same name from Final Fantasy VIII. Moombas possess red fur-covered bodies. Standing at about a meter in height, they get around via running or walking on all fours, but can stand on their hind legs when stationary. Their paws are oversized in comparison to their bodies, with each possessing sharp claws which, coupled with sharp teeth, can be used for defense.
His manikin Imaginary Beast is light blue
Red XIII, known as the Gaia Raver, is a very ground-centered rushdown character. His movelist is centered around staying close to his opponent and keeping the assault going, having a fast movespeed and several branching HP attacks to compliment this. However in the air he has very little options, making him incredibly reliant on having a good amount of footing.

- The naming scheme of his attacks are an homage to both his real name, Nanaki, and his father, Seto.
- All of his unique equipment are different hair clips, as these were his only form of "weapon" in Final Fantasy VII. This is further referenced by his ability to equip hairpins.
