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. Ancient Forest
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
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 untill you fight a big green creature with wings. Manipulate it
and have it use White Wind on your party).
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 accesory 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
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. Cast Any Spell Three
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 cast 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!!! Cloud's level 4 limit break "Omnislash"
Go to the Golden Saucer (preferably later in the game) and go to the battle
arena. Gain 32,000 battle points (I know, easier said than done). First you
need to get A LOT of GP from the Wonder Square and the Chocobo Races, then,
when inside the battle arena, you must not leave (When you leave the battle
arena, all your battle points dissapear). Equip Cloud with all the best
materia and equipment. Talk to the woman at the desk. Say you want to use
Cloud. You will go inside the battle arena and start the battles. There are 8.
Once you defeat all of them, you will exit with a certain amount of battle
points (and a "tissue"... completly useless). Go to the computer at the lower
left of the screen when you have 32,000 battle points. Scroll down until you
get omnislash. That is Clouds level 4 limit break. If you don't want to go
through all of this, just wait until you fight the very last Sephiroth, Cloud
will automaticly be able to use Omnislash on Sephiroth Duplicate Items
For this to work you need the W-Item Materia. This Materia is available at the
excavation site. Search the bottom layer at a place that looks a little like
someone scuffed an "x" in the dirt. Equip the Materia, and in battle use it.
Select the Item that you want to duplicate first, then select any other item.
After you select the second item hit cancel, and notice that the first item
has increased by one. Just keep selecting the item, and canceling till you
have all you need. The only downfall to this is that you can only duplicate
items that you can use during battle. Get a date with Yuffie at the Gold
If you are tired of Aeris and Tifa fighting over Cloud, then try this. To date
Yuffie, be as mean as possible to everyone, except Yuffie of course, and don't
let Aeris or Tifa into your party. If you have to use them, then run away from
all enemies. Aeris and Tifa don't like a chicken-wuss Cloud. At the Sector 5
reactor, say "I can't hold on much longer" That will dissapoint Tifa. When you
first meet Aeris, say "You were the slum drunk". That will lose you major
points with Aeris. When you get to the Wall Market, say you'll take Aeris
home. At the Wall Market get all the best items so Corneo will pick Cloud. Say
all the stuff that will lead to Cloud 'almost' kissing him. When in Cloud's
flashback in Kalm, go into Tifa's room, and sneak around in her dressers. You
should recieve an item "Orthopedic Underwear" this will greatly embarrass
Tifa, and you'll lose major points with her. Get Yuffie as soon as possible.
Keep her in your party at all times, and keep her healthy. On the boat when
you fight Jenova birth, keep Yuffie out of it, because she doesn't want to go.
Whenever you have a choice to talk to your party always talk to Yuffie first
and Aeris and Tifa last. Do the Materia sub-quest and always trust Yuffie. And
don't go in the pagoda because that will make her mad. And on your way to
North Corel have Aeris or Tifa in your party alond with Yuffie and take the
ten phoenix downs from the bird's nest. This will make Aeris/Tifa mad at you
but make Yuffie happy because you place treasure over birds. Then when you get
to the date at the Gold Saucer, it should be Yuffie! Get the Great Gospel
To get Great Gospel, you first need to go through the first Gold Saucer area
of the game. When you get the buggy, head north to Costa del Sol. Without
leaving the Buggy, drive into Costa del Sol. Go to the ship harbor and talk to
the man blocking the dock to the ship you took to get here from Junon. He will
ask you if you want to stow away. Say yes and pay him his extremely small fee.
You will be brought directly to Junon. Exit the first screen and head down the
street until you see the helicopter landing pad with a sailor standing next to
it. Talk to him and he will offer you the Helitaxi. Don't worry, it is free.
Take the taxi outside of Junon, and you will appear in the buggy. Drive north
to the Old Man's cave. You will need to cross a shallow river to get there,
hence why you have the buggy. Talk to the man when you have 600-700 victories
in battle and the last two digits match (i.e. 611, 622, 633, 644, etc.). He
will give you a piece of Mythrill. Hop back in the buggy and drive into
Junon.. pay the soldier gaurding the elevator to Upper Junon 10 gil to use the
elevator. Head to the boat launching area. Go in the boat and stow away. You
will appear in Costa del Sol. Now go to the Weapon Maker's shop outside of
Gongaga. Give him the mythrill and he will give you a choice of either chests
upstairs. Go up the stairs and take the one built into the wall at the end of
the balcony. Voila! You have Aeris' ultimate limit break. Great Gospel makes
you invulnerable, restores all HP/MP, and cures all status effects. Getting
Vincent and Odin in Nibelheim mansion
Go to the safe upstairs and enter the code RIGHT 36, LEFT 10, RIGHT 59,RIGHT
97(DO NOT PASS THE #)TO ENTER EACH # PRESS ENTER! Odin and the basement key
will be in the safe. Be careful there is also a powerful boss. After you beat
the boss go to the basement and go inside the door that is in the second
hallway. Vincent will be in the coffin. Keep talking to him until he says,"Let
me sleep." Then try to walk out of the basement, he will offer to join you.
Propagate Spell Effects
To cast a spell once and have it afflict the enemy a dozen times, you must
possess at least three spells: Quadra Magic, Reflect and a spell that inflicts
multiple hits, such as Commet2 or Ultima.
To send the "plague", combine Quadra Magic with a multiple hit spell. And when
a battle ensues, cast Reflect -- first on the warring party and then on you.
Conclude with the Quadra combination! Restore energy during Chocobo races
Hold [Page Down] + [Target] while racing a Chocobo. Special Battle Arena and
Go to Gold Saucer. Earn Omnislash (Cloud's level 4 limit break: 32,000 battle
points) and W-Summon(65,000 battle points) in the battle arena. Then the lady
at the front desk will ask you if you want to do a special battle arena. If
you complete this you will get the great materia Final Attack (when a
character dies, if they have final attack hooked with the Phoenix summon
materia which damages the enemy and casts life 2 on all allies, just before
they die, they will cast the Phoenix Summon and not only revive themselves,
but anyone else who is dead. Very good agaist Emerald and Ruby weapons).
Surviving an Ambush
When attacked, a defenseless character takes more damage than one who is
defending -- and this is especially the case when surprised from behind. The
easiest way to parry such attacks is to simultaneously push [Page Up] and
[Page Down] keys. Tifa's level 4 limit break "Final Heaven"
During the second or third CD, go to Nebleheim (Cloud and Tifa's hometown)
with Tifa in your party. Go into Tifa's house and go upstairs into her room.
Examine her piano to the right of the seat. Say "play the piano" and that you
remember. Play these commands on the piano: Cancel, Switch, Menu, Pgup+Menu,
Pgup+Switch, Cancel, Switch, Menu, Pgup+Cancel, OK, Cancel, Switch, Cancel.
Tifa and the other party member will jump out, you look in Tifa's music sheets
to find a note from her teacher. You read the note and recieve Tifa's level 4
limit break manual "Final Heaven." View FMV sequences
