Side Quests

 

There are several minor side quests in Final Fantasy VII. Here is a guide to some of them, if you know of others, let me know via the contact page.

 

Adding Yuffie to the party

When you reach Fort Condor, roam around in the forest until you encounter a "Mystery Ninja". You shouldn't have a problem with her unless you're at a very low level.  After you defeat her, you find yourself in an open field with Yuffie on the ground and a save point nearby. Do NOT use the save point. Talk to Yuffie and answer all of her questions with the following answers:

1. Not Interested
2. Petrified
3. Wait a second!
4. That's right
5. Let's hurry on

When you answer all of her questions correctly, she will join your party.

 

Adding Vincent to the party

After you arrive in Nibelheim, go to the Shinra Mansion after you explore the town. Be careful in the mansion as the enemies here tend to be annoying and some are quite powerful. Once you enter through the main door, head upstairs and to the left into the room with the plants. In there is a chest. Open it and you'll get an item. But don't leave the place yet.

When you're ready (Materia, items etc), go upstairs and head to the left of the balcony and into the room with the safe. Now turn the dial to the correct numbers (Right 36, Left 10, Right 59, Right 97) as fast as possible and avoid going over that number as that counts as a failure. When you get to the number, press the action button. If you do it correctly, the "Odin" materia will pop out and you will be attacked by the boss, "Lost Number". After you beat the boss, you receive the "Basement Key".

After you pick up the "Odin" materia, go to the right of the balcony and into the hidden staircase. Descend and travel along the tunnel until you see a door. The first door you see is the one you want. Go inside and talk to the coffin. Vincent will pop out and talk to you. He then goes back inside the coffin. Talk to him until he refuses to come out of his coffin. Then head out and into the other door in the tunnel where you will meet Sephiroth. After the encounter, head out of the tunnel. Vincent stops you and joins your party.

 

Sleeping Man

You can get to this man when you get the buggy which you can ride on the ship at Costa Del Sol with. Head back to Junon and ride the buggy around the area between Fort Condor and Junon. While you drive around, look for a river. When you find it, cross it where it's shallow and you'll see a cave. Enter the cave and talk to the man sleeping on his bed. He mumbles random things but the thing you want to look for is how many times you've been in battle. He also gives you other statistics. What you are trying to do is make the last two digits of the number of battles you've fought the same. For example, if he says you've fought 38 battles, you need to fight 6 more battles so that the number of battles you've fought in comes out to 44. When you talk to him, he'll awake and give you a "Bolt Ring", but don't count on coming back for more because he only gives that out once. Go talk to the Weapon Seller. After you talk to him, go back to the Sleeping Man and he will give you "Mythril".

 

Weapon Seller

This man is also the same person who informs you that he sold the "Keystone" to Dio, the president of the Gold Saucer. He lives east of Gongaga in a small house. After you visit the Sleeping Man, and get "Mythril" from him, talk to the Weapon Seller. He gives you the choice of taking anything from either the chest upstairs or the chest downstairs. The chest downstairs contains a "Gold Armlet" while the chest upstairs contains Aeris' final limit break, "Great Gospel".

 

Turtle Paradise Flyers

If you get all of the flyers, you get a prize that consists one of each of, "Power Source", "Guard Source", "Magic Source", "Mind Source", "Speed Source", "Luck Source", and a "Megalixer". The Flyers can be found in the following locations:

Flyer 1: Midgar Sector 5 Slums in the boys room inside the house to the right.
Flyer 2: Shinra HQ on Level 1. Found on the bulletin board on the back.
Flyer 3: Gold Saucer on the wall of the Ghost Hotel's lobby.
Flyer 4: Cosmo Canyon next to the weapon's shop.
Flyer 5: Cosmo Canyon next to the inn's desk.
Flyer 6: Wutai in the basement of Yuffie's house outside of the trap room.

 

Cloud Flashback

Any time after Cloud comes back to reality from his dream-like state, go back to the Shinra Mansion and into the basement. Head into the room with all of the laboratory equipment. Here, Cloud should have a flashback and this sequence should reveal how they returned to Midgar after the incident in Nibelheim.

 

Kalm Traveller

Look around in Kalm and in one of the houses on the upper floor, you encounter an old man who seeks three items. They are the "Guide Book", "Earth Harp", and a "Desert Rose". The guide book is found by morphing a Ghost Ship in the tunnels that lead to the Junon Underwater Reactor. The "Earth Harp" is attained by defeating the Emerald Weapon. The "Desert Rose" is stolen from Ruby Weapon after you beat it. The "Guide Book" will get you the "Underwater" materia, which it's only use is to allow you to get rid of the time limit while fighting the Emerald Weapon. The "Earth Harp" will get you one of each of, "Master Magic", "Master Summon", and "Master Command". The "Desert Rose" results in a Chocobo.

 

Master Materia

To obtain "Master" materia, you have to master every materia in each category. After you do this, you should go to Bugenhagen's Laboratory and examine each "Huge" materia. This results in receiving all of the "Master" materia. Each "Huge" materia brings forth a different "Master" materia depending on which class it belongs to.

 

Lucrecia and Vincent's Past

When you get the sub, make sure you have Vincent in your party and go diving around north of Costa Del Sol. Doing this will allow for you to find a small cave. Enter the cave and you will find Lucrecia. After that sequence, head back out and fight 10 battles. After that, go back to the cave and you receive Vincent's ultimate weapon and his final limit break.

 

Bone Village

This village is a large excavation area that you can use to dig up some very useful items. If you choose to search for "Good Treasure", then you will find either the "Buntline" or the "Mop." If you choose "Normal Treasure", then you will probably find common objects or the "Key to Sector 5". Getting this item means that you can go back into Midgar to buy some special new items.

 

Return Visit to Cosmo Canyon

After you finish up the incident with the Sister Ray, go back to Cosmo Canyon and head into the item shop. If you've been in here before, you probably noticed a door in the side that was locked. Well, it's now open and you can get the "Full Cure" materia, a "Magic Source", and an "Elixir"
