Final Fantasy VII
10 Phoenix Downs and a Secret Cave:
On the way to Coral, go to the switch that you push to let the others
go through. If you explore around that area, you should hear birds
chirping. Go up the hill where you hear it (you might have to search
to find the right spot) and pick the first choice you are given.
After collecting the 10 Phoenix Downs, go back down to the lower
tracks and follow your partners. As they turn to the right, you need
to take the left split because buried in the hill under the tracks is
a cave with an out-of-work miner. A Power Source, Mind Source, and
Tent may be acquired within this hidden area.
Note: Your score will be lowered if you do this. It's not nice to
disturb baby birds.

To get to the Ancient Forest before disc 3, simply ride up the hill
with a black, gold or green chocobo.
Beat the Cosmo Canyon Boss When you get to the Boss inside the caves
at Cosmo Canyon to beat him all you do is use a Phoenix Down on him to
kill him instantly. Sometimes that misses so you might want to use
other healing items like X-Potion, High Potion or Potion.
Beat the Emerald Weapon:
If your having difficulty beating Emerald Weapon and you can't get the
Knights of the Round consider using this method.First equip three
gravity materia, one to each character, second if possible equip a
mime materia to each character.
Next to one character, equip both the W-Magic materia and quadra magic
materia joined to the characters gravity materia. Join an all materia
to the other characters materia. Okay. Now when you go into battle all
you do is use any level of demi on the Emerald weapon and it
automatically does 9999 HP of damage to with every hit but at the end
his HP will lower and a couple of hits with a moderately powerful
summon spell and he's done for. Voila!
Beat the Ruby Weapon:
For this you will need Nights Of The Round with at least 3 levels.
Phoenix summon with at least 3 levels. Shield with at least 2 levels.
Final Attack with any level. About 3 mastered HP and MP pluses (you
might need more). 3 Enemy Skills with White Wind learned (to learn
White Wind, go to the grassy area of Junon until you fight a big
green creature with wings. Manipulate it and have it use White Wind on
You also need MP and HP absorb and the MIME command. Make sure you do
NOT have the w-item, w-magic, and w-summon materias. Give everyone HP
pluses untill it reaches 9,999 HP. Then do the same with the MP pluses
until it reaches 999. Equip Cloud with the Ultima Weapon and give him
the following materia.
Combine the Nights Of The Round with the MP absorb. Give him Phoenix
with Final Attack. Give him mime with HP absorb. Make sure that you
only eqip these matiera on the Ultima Weapon if their mastered. Give
him shield and enemy skill. Give your other party members the other
enemy skills. Make sure Cloud has an accessory that will protect him
from Frog and Small.
Before you fight Ruby, get into a battle and have Cloud kill your
other party members. Now go after Ruby. Start off by using shield on
Cloud. Do NOT have Cloud bring the rest back to life.
Now have Cloud use Knights of the Round and just keep miming it until
the Ruby Weapon kills you. When you come back to life, repeat the
process until you've won.
NOTE: No matter what, do not use any limit breaks or regular attacks
on Ruby. If Cloud becomes a toad, use white wind to heal him.
When you first go to the Chocobo ranch you have to catch a chocobo to
avoid the Midgarsorm. Well, I figured out a way to get the powerful
Beta spell before the second disc. You need the Enemy skill materia, a
Fire materia, and any elemental materia equipped on one person. MAKE
SURE THE LAST TWO ARE ON YOUR ARMOR!
If you keep this character healed until Midgarsorm casts Beta you
SHOULD be able to survive the spell. Then just finish him off. This is
tricky to pull off but if done correctly you will be set for a LONG
Cait Sidhe's Level 3 Limit Break - Japanese:
Cait Sith has a level 3 limit break which will kill all enemies in one
hit. This is tested and proven in the Japanese FFVII. To get it, you
must use Cait Sith to kill 954 enemies. The Level 3 limit should be
highlighted, but there will be no name. For activation, it will take
about 36 times your HP damage.
It will look like an error, because it is, but when activated, an
error message will appear and the battle will continue as if the enemy
was killed in one hit.
Cast Any Spell Three Times:
To cast three magic spells in one round, first equip someone with a
Magic Materia + "All" Support Materia. You'll also need Barrier
Materia with the Reflect spell learned. When you enter battle, cast
Reflect on the entire party, (your party). Then cast the magic spell
that was connected to the "All" Materia on YOUR party. Even though you
casted the spell once, it will be reflected and returned to the enemy
hitting for three times! And for the same price of the usual MP's.
What's even better is that if you have W-Magic, you can cast that
spell twice, or two different spells (both need to be connected to
"All" Materia) hitting for six times!!!
While racing the chocobos, hold L1 + L2 + R1 + R2 to increase your
speed. To increase their stamina, hold R1 + R2.
While choosing a chocobo to race, press L1, L2, R1, R2 or any
direction to pan, zoom and rotate the chocobo you're viewing.
While in Mideel (before it has been destroyed), go to the weapons shop
and check the door in the back (the one that does not open.) Next, go
to the shop on the hill with the man on the balcony. Walk behind him
along the part of the balcony on the side of the shop until you here a
rattling sound. Check the spot and you will get a key. Use the key on
the door, and it will break off. The owner will ask what happened.
Tell the truth and he will give you the curse ring. If you lie, he
will not give it to you. It raises all of your stats, but puts the
character on death sentance, but this can be countered with a Phoenix
Defeating Savior Sephiroth:
For this fight you will need: Knights of the Round, Zero Bahumut, and
any other summons. Cure 3, Wall, "Mime", DeBarrier, Remedies and at
least three Megaexlir's.
Start out by casting Wall on your party, then cast DeBarrier to take
away Sephiroth's wall. After this has been done throw everything
you've got at him, use Mime to cause major damage. During the fight
Sephiroth will levitate higher, signaling he's preparing to cast Super
If you are above 1500 energy you should be alright, watch out for his
Heartless Angel that will not kill you, but bring your health down to
1. Then use Megaexlirs. Keep up the endurance and Sephiroth shouldn't
be to hard to beat.
Go to the forest outside of Meedeel.
Walk around until you fight Head
Hunters or Caterpillers. Equip Cloud
with an Apocalipse sword and
everyone with a Rune Armlet. If you
fight a group of 4 Head Hunters you
get 340 AP. Caterpillers and a group
of 3 Head Hunters give you 240 AP.
Equip as many 'ALL' and 'MAGIC

mastered they are worth 1.4 million gil
Here's a way to get two very helpful accessories.
Ribbon: To get a ribbon you must go into the crater and walk around
until You fight a Master Tonberry. Attack him a few times and then
morph him. He will turn into a Ribbon.
Tetra-Elemental: There is a small
desert island in the south under the
Western Continent. Land there with
the Highwind or with a gold chocobo.
Walk on the sand until you fight a small
cactus man. Morph him a eh becomes
a Tetra-Elemental. Note: I have had
the best luck morphing with Yuffie
simply because see deals 9999 HP
damage each time. It may be a
different case for you but Yuffie is
usually the best morpher.

With the lid open, the game won't be
able to cast the spell, so the game will

Once the lid is closed, the game will

the game is looking for the CD, the
regenerate spell will still be working,

some of the ultra tough bosses
(Emerald and Diamond Weapon)

here is a wonderful trick. As soon as
you have mastered an "All" mateira,
remove it and replace it with the new

Effortless GP Gain
To do this trick, you need a joystick
controller with rapid-fire settings and
access to the Gold Saucer.
Go to Wonder Square, and up to the
arm-wrestling game. Wrap a
rubberband around your joystick so
that it's pulled to the upper left
diagonal, so that Cloud continuously
walks into the arm-wrestling machine
but not into the GP-trading girl. Now,
turn on the rapid-fire for the 'O' button.
Cloud will now repeatedly challenge
and beat the wrestling game. Slowly
but surely, your GP will increase. It
takes a while, so it's probably best to
set this up just before you go to bed at
night, and leave it on while you sleep.

Gain Limit Breaks Easily
When in normal status use a "Hyper."
This will let your limit meter go up
faster, so you can use your old
techniques more. The reason for this
is that one way to get your limit breaks
gained is to use your old techniques.
WARNING: When you use the
"Hyper," your status changes to
"Fury," which will lessen your hit rate.
Another way to gain your limit breaks
is to defeat large groups of enemies.
Try this: When leaving the Nibel
Mountains and heading for Rocket
Town, you should see a group of
forests when you leave the mountains.
Try engaging combat there, because
sometimes you fight large groups of
enemies there. Such as a group of six
"Battery Caps," or sometimes five
"Battery Caps" and one "Valron." This
