Fantasy VII Subquests
|The ancient forest is small
forest near Cosmo Canyon. You can only get there if you have a Green Chocobo
or when you've defeated Ultimate WEAPON. The forest is a puzzle of little
obstacles which can be solved by using flies and frogs. Here's a visual
guide to the forest.
|First pick up a fly (or
frog) and release it near the plant sacks (Not in the sacks yet). Repeat
this until there are 3 flies or frogs near the plants. Put one in the first
plant and pick up another. Jump on the now closed plant and repeat until
you closed all three and can pass to the next part. (1) Just ignore the
snap plant (2).
|Pick up a fly and jump up
using the tongue plant (1). Now jump on the closed plant to jump across.
You'll automatically jump on the next tongue plant over the snapping plant.
Now pick up a frog and stand on the little green plateau (3). If you want
the slash all materia, put the frog in the left plant. Otherwise put it
in the right plant. Stand on the now closed plant and press to the left
(If you use the left plant) or to the right while standing on the closed
plant. Once the plant tries to swallow the frog you'll perform a mega jump
reaching a new area. If you jumped left, you can pick up the bee hive and
jump down (2). Release the hive on the snapping plant to close it, allowing
you to get the materia. If you jumped to the right, simply walk to the
First pick up two flies
and close both the plants (1). Stand on them and jump until you reach the
tongue plant. Now you'll reach the treetops. If you go to the right, you'll
be able to pick up the Typoon (Typhon) summon materia. You'll also be able
to go down on the right. Do so and you walk down the rope reaching the
tree stump. Now pick up a fly and put it into plant on the right (4). Jump
on the plants to reach the orange platform with a beehive. Pick it up and
jump down. Close the snapping plant with the beehive and pick up another
fly. Use the fly on the plant (3) to close it. Jump to the other side and
walk towards the hole in the tree (2). Pick up a fly and release it in
the hollow tree. Wait and it will be replaced by a frog. Pick up the frog
and put in the plant on the right (3). If you were fast enough the fly
would still be in it. Jump across and wait until the frog gets spit out
of the plant. Pick it up and use the frog on the plant (4) on the right.
Jump on the now closed plant and hold "right". When the frog gets swallowed,
you'll perform a megajump and reach the cave on the other side. Inside
is the Apocalypse Sword.
Key to Midgar (and Lunar harp)
Cargo Plane "Gelnika"
|To fight Sephiroth and Meteor,
the Shinra company made lots of powerful weaponry and items. But the plane
that caried this equipment crashed into the sea near Costa Del Sol. When
you have the submarine, you can visit the sunken plane. When you do this
after the Midgar parachute mission, you'll won't meet Rude and Reno. Either
way, you can find lots of good items here. Be sure not to leave without:
Hades materia, Highwind -limit 4 for Cid, Heaven's Cloud (A sword), Conformer
and Double Cut materia.
|The Turtle Paradise flyers
are posters on 6 walls spread all over the world. If you read them all,
and go back to Turtle Paradise (in Wutai) you'll receive one of each source
(Luck source etc.) and a Megalixer. here are the six locations you should
1- Check the wall
in the little boy's bedroom in sector 5 slums of Midgar.
2- Near the lobby
on the first floor of the Shinra building is another Paradise flyer.
3- Look for a flyer
next to Tiger Lily's Armsshop in Cosmo Canyon.
4- There's also
a flyer on the wall at the Cosmo Canyon Inn.
5- Next to the itemsshop
in the Ghost Motel (Goldsaucer) is a flyer too.
6- Yuffie's basement
is the place to look for the sixth flyer. Next to her training room on
|If you have found Yuffie
in the forests and talked her into joining you, a small subquest will start
when you reach Wutai. She'll steal all your materia and disappear. To get
your materia back you'll have to go and find her in Wutai.
|Once in Wutai, go around
the place and visit a few shops. When you find the materia shop, open the
box on the right. Yuffie will appear and steal your materia again. Now
go to the house on the right. Push the clothingscreen and Yuffie will run
away. Now go to the restaurant and kick against the pot outside. Yuffie
will try to jump out and run, be your friends will catch her. She'll lead
you to her basement where you can pull a lever to get the materia back.
But instead you activate a trap imprisoning your friends. You cannot avoid
this so pull either lever again to rasie the trap and go after Yuffie.
Go to the gong near the pagado and use it. A door will appear. Go inside
and you'll meet Don Corneo again. He has taken Elena and Yuffie hostage
and disappears. Now go to the Da-Chao mountains and beat Rapps (Don Corneo's
new pet). After you've defeated Rapps you'll get your materia back.
|To get back into Midgar
later in the game, you'll need a key. Here's how to get it. First go to
Midgar city. You will see a guy sitting near the gate. He says that he
lost his key to the city. (If the guy is not sitting here, come back later)
He also says that he lost it during the excavation. Go to Bone Village
and talk to the man at the tent. Choose for "Start Digging" and "Dig for
normal treasures". Now position the 5 diggers on the raised plateau. The
key is just right of the black spot near the open tent. Stand just a bit
right of the black spot and let them dig there. When everything went correctly
the key will be in the box. If you want the Lunar Harp, simply dig where
Cloud stands. (On the picture)

your room. She'll ask you out on a date. But its possible to date someone
else. If you were very rude towards Aeris during the game, then Tifa will
ask you out. Its also possible to get Yuffie. This is very hard though.
To get her, you have ignore Tifa and Aeris as much as possible, be very
impolite towards them and pick up Yuffie as soon as you're clear of the
Mythril mines. Use Yuffie at all times in your party and finish her subquest
as soon as possible too. Then you have a 1 in 10 chance she'll date you.
And when you're rude to Yuffie as well, then Barret will "date" you...
