Final Fantasy 7 Cheats - PlayStation
Avoid back attack
When surprised with a back attack, try running away
to automatically turn around (hold [L1] + [R1]). This
allows your party to take less damage, however the enemy will
get the first strike.
Faster time bar
When you get into any battle, rapidly press [Circle].
However, if this slows the time bar down, rapidly press [Triangle].
If [Triangle] slows you down when it was speeding up, then
rapidly press [Circle] again. Keep switching if you have
When you are fighting one of the more difficult battles and run
low health or need to attack quicker, open the PlayStation's lid
and let the game idle for awhile. While it is searching for the
game disc, your time gauge will still be recharging.
Maneuvering the Highwind
The Highwind can be turned sideways or flown backwards
without turning around. Hold [Square] and press the D-Pad
in the desired direction while flying.
Instead of pressing [Square] + D-Pad to fly the Highwind,
press [Circle] to go forward. Press [R1] or [L1]
to turn sharper.
To fly crooked, hold [R1] + [Left] or [L1] + [Right]
while moving at full speed forward.
Easy Key to Sector 5
Instead of going through all of the digging to find
the "Key to Sector 5" on the top level of the Bone Village,
go to the village in Disc 3. There should be an X on the ground
in front of the ladder to the second level. Talk to the man and
dig for normal treasure in the exact center of the X three times.
The first time you should get Cid's mop, the second time you should
get W-Summon, and the third time you should get the Key to Sector
View Cloud's Omnislash from behind
When you get Omnislash, use it. Immediately after you
select your enemies, open the lid on the PlayStation. The game
will go through all of the camera movements of the Omnislash,
but Cloud will not use the technique. When the camera stops the
second time, close the lid. About 15 seconds after you close the
door, Cloud will use Omnislash. Note: Sometimes the camera will
go in front. Make sure you have either Cloud or Red XIII in the
middle or you may not see Cloud.
Bahamnant ZERO Summon Materia details
Walk around after boarding the Shinra No. 26 spaceship
on disc two. Your party will be able to go down to the space pod
or up the ladder to the right to the huge materia. Go to the huge
materia and use the talk button at the tall glass to speak with
Cid. He will explain the controls in this part of the game. Talk
again at the case and enter the password [Circle], [Square],
[X], [X] to collect the Key Item "Huge Materia".
After travelling to Cosmo Canyon later in the game, talk to Bugenhagen.
He will take your party up to his observatory. Approach to the
Blue huge materia and get closer. Your party will receive the
Bahamnant ZERO summon materia.
Sense without wasting a turn
Press [Select] to display a window above the time
bars, then sense the enemy. From this point on whenever you attack
that enemy while selecting, look in that window to see its current
HP and name. Note: This only works during the current battle.
Play Cosmo Canyon song
You can play the Cosmo Canyon song on your own by going
to Tifa's house in Nibelheim. Then, press [Square], [Square],

Glitch: Gold Saucer FMV
When flying to Gold Saucer for the first time, the
propellers are facing the front, in the direction that it moves.
In the FMV sequence, they are on the back, propelling it.
Glitch: Gold Saucer Battle Square entrance
When you go to the Gold Saucer, go to the Battle Square.
Choose to enter the Battle Square with Cloud. Make sure you have
a different weapon, such as the Ultima weapon, equipped and enter.
When you see Cloud running in, he has his original Buster Sword
equipped. However, when you start battling, you see him with the
sword you equipped before entering.
Glitch: Unfinished cave
There is a hidden cave on the pathway to the Ancient
Capital. This cave can be found right after the two screens of
the Sleeping Forest. Move to the right of the screen where the
log bridge is located. You will notice a vine hanging from a cliff.
A large opening, which is most likely a cave, can be seen hidden
within the shadows of the cliff . There is a small detour that
leads to the vine, but you cannot climb it. It has been theorized
that this "cave" is a glitch and was probably the remnant
of a side-quest in the game that was taken out.
Glitch: Missing part of the world
During Disc 3, while riding a Chocobo or flying the
Highwind on the world map, a part of the world will be cut off.
You must go to another location immediately. If you remain at
the cut off place too long, the screen will freeze and turn black
with a small, gray box and a flashing question mark inside. If
you wait, the game may recover, but it sometimes does not. Note:
The cut off part of the world map will be black.
Glitch: Golden Saucer Battle Square
Note: This trick is done with Cloud. Equip any weapon
that he can use except his initial weapon, the Buster Sword (for
example, Ragnarok). When you register for the Battle Square, choose
Cloud to enter. When he runs in the battle room, he will have
his Buster Sword. However, when you go into battle you will have
the other sword that was equipped.
Glitch: Aeris' ribbon
In the FMV sequence where Aeris has her final scene,
her hair ribbon and the White Materia will come off her. After
the FMV sequence, Cloud runs up and catches her. She will have
the ribbon in her hair.
Glitch: Cloud walking on house
Go on the hill between Icicle and the Great Glacier
and walk to town. Cloud will walk on top of one of the house graphics
if you walk into it.
Glitch: Frozen game
When you are dressed as a woman in the sector Don Corneo
lives in, go in front of the Honey Bee. When all the men move
towards you, the fat man in the red vest will be the last one
to block you off from the Honey Bee. Before he blocks you off,
quickly close all dialogue boxes and run around him. A box that
says "Hey, Cloud" will appear and the game will freeze.
Play the game on a PlayStation 2. Select the "Config"
option at the menu. Then go to "Customize" at "Controller"
screen. Press [R3] or [L3] and the screen will glitch.
When you try to exit, the game will freeze.
