One of the greatest Final Fantasy VII characters and father to the amazing first class Soldier Sephiroth (not Vincent to all the annoying Vincent fans, HOJO!).

In the game he was originally the head of the science department, this changed when his luck changed and he left, ending up in Costa Del Sol.

Sadly in the third disc of the game Hojo is defeated by Cloud and the gang Hojo disappears. Though he has JENOVA cells in him, it is confirmed later in a novel about Aeris that Hojo died, never to return as he gave all his energy to Sephiroth in the final fight.

His memories and partial self return in Dirge of Cerberus when we learn that he downloaded his mind and memorise into a computer. These later ended in Vice(there are alternate name spellings) who became the host of Hojo's superior mind. This again sadly ended when Vice kills himself.

Hojo is famous for his experiment on Lucrecia, who was his lover (said on some things to be his wife) and his unborn child, Sephiroth. He also was famous for trying to breed Red XIII with Aeris (for different reasons amongst fans XD)

Hojo was also the cause of the great professor Gasts death, shooting him after looking for Gast's wife Ilfana and Daughter Aeris. Hojo was also the cause of Vincent's death, he was later brought back by Hojo also.
Barret: I remembered him. That Hojo guy. He's in charge of the Shinra's Science

Hojo: There's so many frivolous things in this world.

Hojo: Ha, ha, ha... Although he doesn't know. Ha, ha, ha... HA, HA, HA...!!
What will Sephiroth think when he finds out I'm his father? Always looking down
on me like that. HA, HA, HA...!!

Hojo: Heee, hee, hee, hee! No you're wrong! It's my desire as a scientist!
Heee, hee, hee, hee! I... was defeated by my desire to become a scientist. I
lost the last time as well. I've injected Jenova's cells into my own body!
Heee, hee, hee! Here are...... Heee, hee, hee! results!!

1. a nickname for the famous roadside hotel chain Howard Johnsons.

2. a nickname for the British singer and keyboardist Howard Jones.
1. I was eating dinner at a HoJo in Memphis. The tray liner paper said, "If it tastes as good as your mom's, it must be Howard Johnsons."

2. HoJo had some big hits in the 80s such as "Things Can Only Get Better", "Life in One Day", "New Song", "You Know I Love You, Don't You?", and "Everlasting Love".

Holy shit, what is wrong with you people? "Hojo" is the Japanese word for assistance, aid, or support. I've never seen more ludicrous definitions for something like this in my entire life.
Hojo, it basically means "help," what you all need.

Contrary to popular belief, meaning the word of a crazed-lunatic scientist who’ll call anything that’s successful his progeny, Sephiroth is Vincent’s son, not Hoho.

Factors pointing to this other then comments between Lucrecia and Vincent, are all physical.

1) Sephiroth is 6 feet tall. Vincent is 6 feet tall. Hojo the hobo is a small mofo. Height being mostly determined by the parental genes, seems odd if Hobo is the father.

2) Sephiroth and Vincent look exactly the same minus their eye color(mako) and hair color(jenova)! Are we suppose to believe that Square Enix is sooooo cheap that they decided to use the same face for characters who are supposedly unrelated? So cheap that they decided to use the same brow shape, the same eye shape, the same nose, the same lips....Yet Sephiroth is not Vincent’s son but Hojo’s?

Last but not least
3) Both Lucrecia and Hojo have a straight hairlines. Meaning they both carry the recessive ww gene and therefore can NEVER spawn a child with a widow’s peak. Square Enix cleverly mask Vincent widow’s peak with a bandana or a bangs (when he was with the Turks), but Doctor Grimore Valentine sports a widow’s peak in his brief appearance in DoC. Coincidence? I think not.

Lucrecia: But what? If you have something to say, say it.

Vincent: Are you... Are you sure this is what you really want?

Lucrecia: Am I sure? Am I sure!? IF THIS ONLY CONCERNS ME, then yes, I am sure! (what a nice way to tell Vincent to man up to his child)
Vincent( to Lucrecia): But using your (not taking responsibility for your son, vinny?) own child for an experiment?

Hojo: I don't know what you're implying...blah blah blah ...You are the last person to have any word in this. Now

leave us at once, boy!

Vincent: But...

Lucrecia: But what? If you have something to say, say it.

Vincent: Are you... Are you sure this is what you really want?

Lucrecia: Am I sure? Am I sure!? IF THIS ONLY CONCERNS ME, then yes, I am sure! (what a nice way to tell Vincent to man up to his child)
