Strategy | Secret Characters

There are two secret characters in Final Fantasy VII: Vincent Valentine and Yuffie Kisaragi. What follows are the steps you need to take to get them in your party.

Vincent Valentine
Vincent can be found at the Shinra Mansion in Nibelheim. In one of rooms of the mansion is a locked safe. To crack the safe, enter the following combination:

Right to 36
Left to 10
Right to 59
Right to 97

The safe will open and you'll encounter the miniboss Lost Number. Kill this monster and retrieve the items in the safe. Enter the basement and proceed to the locked coffin room. Inside will be Vincent Valentine. Speak to him and leave, and Vincent will join your party shortly afterward.

Yuffie Kisaragi
This character can be found in a number of forests, most notably the one east of Junon, and the one southwest of Junon. Fight in one of these forests until you encounter the 'Mystery Ninja' (Yuffie Kisaragi). Defeat her, and you'll appear on a field with a Save Point. Do not use the save point. It is a trap and Yuffie will disappear with some of your money.

Go over to Yuffie instead and correctly answer her five questions with these replies:

  Q1. 'Not interested'
  Q2. 'Petrified'
  Q3. 'Wait a second!'
  Q4. 'That's right'
  Q5. 'Let's hurry on.'

Answer these questions incorrectly and Yuffie will disappear and you must find her again. Answer them right, and Yuffie will join you.

To increase the chances of fighting Yuffie, try equipping the Enemy Away materia and the Luck Plus materia.
