Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth Moogles refers to the redesign of the Moogle characters in Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth, the second of Square Enix's multi-game remake of the original Final Fantasy VII. The new design of the Moogle makes them appear slightly more realistic, with open eyes and human teeth as opposed to the closed eyes and closed mouth designs of the original Moogles. designs were widely reviled on social media, as users found them a creepy, unwelcome change, drawing some comparisons to the original Sonic the Hedgehog design for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie.


On February 29th, 2024, the release date of Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth,[1] Japanese players quickly commented on their distaste for the redesign of the Moogle characters. For example, on that day, Twitter user @philipmorio5mg[2] compared the Final fantasy XIV Moogle design to the Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth design, saying that the latter is "such a different creature that I get nervous" (roughly translated). The tweet gained over 3,200 retweets and 3,200 likes in one week (shown below).

They remind me of that era where live action adaptations of cartoons used photorealistic versions of characters, like Scooby Doo, The Smurfs, Garfield, Woody Woodpecker, and more recently, Sonic.

The exact same vibe, ultra realistic eyes, "realistic" proportions, visible teeth, realistic fur and skin.
