Final Fantasy VII (Playstation) Cheats & Tips

Your guide for cheat codes, tips, hacks and walkthroughs

Unlimited items

This trick requires the W-Item materia. The materia is obtained after your party parachutes back into Midgar in Disc 3. After entering the subway tunnels in Sector 8, your party may walk away from the screen and encounter the Turks, or walk towards the screen to reach another subway section. Select the second choice and follow the subway tunnel until it ends at a dead end with the W-Item materia.

Equip the materia on the character with the item to be duplicated. When a battle begins, select the W-Item entry on the battle menu, select an unimportant item and use it on any character. On the second item choice, select the item to be duplicated by pressing Circle, then press X to cancel your selection and increase the number of that item in inventory. Repeatedly press Circle followed by X to accumulate 99 of the duplicated item. Note: This will only duplicate item selectable in battle and can not be used to duplicate the various sources, materia, weapons, or armor.

Refill HP

Cast Regen-All on your party, then quickly open the PlayStation lid when all opponents have been defeated. The game will be unable to load the victory screen, and may glitch while the HP for each party member fills. After everyone is at full health, close the lid to resume the game.

Easy Battle Square handicaps

During the "slot machine" handicap sequence, rapidly tap Square in the Battle Square section at Gold Saucer. The slots will slow down, allowing an easier selection of your handicap. Note: This trick will also work in a similar manner with Cait Sith's limit break.

Easy Chocobo races

While racing a Chocobo, hold R1 + R2 to slowly restore energy.

Cast magic three times at an opponent

Have all characters with Reflect status. Then, cast any attack spell on all three of your characters. The spell will bounce three times into the enemy, each with the attack power of a full spell.


    Extra money

    Sell a Master level All materia to get 1.4 million Gil. Since another All materia will appear when the original reaches master level, there will be no loss in usefulness.

    Prevent back attacks

    If a battle begins with a "Back Attack", press L1 + R1 to turn your character around before your opponents get a shot.

    Nibelheim safe combination

    The combination to the safe in the old mansion in Nibelheim that contains the key to enter the basement (and get Vincent) is Right 36, Left 10, Right 59, Right 97. Note: Push the button used to talk to people to select each number. After opening the safe and fighting the monster inside, a key to the other part of the mansion and Odin summon materia will be found.

    Finding Vincent

    Take the key from the safe that contained the Odin summoning materia in Nibelheim. After defeating the Boss, Lost Number, walk down into the basement. Open the door that was previously locked (right before enter the room with Sephiroth). Talk with Vincent, after finding him inside the purple coffin. When leaving the room, he will offer to join the party.

    Turtle's Paradise prizes

    The Turtle's Paradise restaurant in Wutai has hidden six flyers with their advertisement in various locations. Collect all six flyers and return them to the restaurant owner to receive a prize consisting of a Power Source, Guard Source, Magic Source, Mind Source, Speed Source, Luck Source, and a Megalixer. The flyers are located in the following places:

    Sector 5 slums, on the wall upstairs in a house on the east side of town.
    Posted on the bulletin board of the lobby of Shinra HQ.
    On the wall next to the item shop in the Ghost Hotel at Gold Saucer.
    Attached to the wall at the Tiger Lily Arms Shop in Cosmo Canyon.
    On the wall next to the inn keeper's desk.
    In Yuffie's basement (next to Turtle's Paradise), check the banner on the wall outside the trap room.

Game Ending (Spoilers!)

Even as Sephiroth is defeated, the Meteor still plunges to its doom. Everyone makes it out alive, but the explosion sends the Hawkwind crashing. The "flower girl is present" and Holy is cast. Alas, notes Red X777, it is having the opposite effect! As the only hope the lifestream of the planet answers the call and engulfs the Meteor in its energy. After 500 years. Red's clan lives on to protect the great valley and the now fully restored planet. After Angel is defeated, The characters talk about what's going to happen to the planet. They all leave, but cloud feels Sephiroth's presence. Cloud flies through the lifestream and sees Sephiroth. You then flash to a battle screen where you beat Sephiroth up using OmniSlash. It shows Sephiroth's bloody death, and then Cloud returns to the crater with Tifa. After that, it shows Cloud & Tifa boarding the Highwind, and Meteor is falling. Cid (barely) hits the Emergency Override switch. The Highwind hightails it out of there, and you witness Holy (basically a green beam) coming down. However, it has the reverse effect. It presses meteor on, then it stops. After this, Holy creates a green ribbon, wrapping the land. Soon after, it flashes to Kalm where Marlene is shown, thinking. Finally, Holy dissolves Meteor into nothingness, and bounces around the land. Cool!
