Final Fantasy VII Remake Abilities


Mode Shift

Cloud's mode shift ability allows him to switch between his balanced operator mode and his-attack oriented punisher mode. Press the ps-triangle-button-final-fantasy-7-remake-wiki-guide button to switch modes.

Operator Mode: In operator mode, Cloud can execute quick attacks, guard against ranged attacks and magic. Operator mode is the default mode Cloud is in when he is in battle.

Punisher Mode: In punisher mode, Cloud moves more slowly, but executes more powerful attacks than usual. In addition, Cloud launches a counterblow every time he guards an enemy's melee attack. He cannot, however, guard against ranged attacks or magic. When you evade such attacks, Cloud will switch back to Operator Mode.




Press ps-triangle-button-final-fantasy-7-remake-wiki-guide while in control of Barret to deliver a heavy-hitting attack that fills a large portion of his ATB Gauge. Once unleashed, it takes a long time to recharge his attack. Pressing ps-triangle-button-final-fantasy-7-remake-wiki-guide, however, will speed up the process.




As Aerith, you can hold down the ps-triangle-button-final-fantasy-7-remake-wiki-guide button to focus your magical energies and release it to unleash Tempest, a powerful magical attack. The potency of Tempest depends on how much magical energy Aerith has stored up. Depending on the situation, you may want to store small amounts of energy and release spells in low-powered bursts, or bide your time and unleash a particularly devastating blast of magic.



Whirling Uppercut, Omnistrike, Rise and Fall

As Tifa, you can press the ps-triangle-button-final-fantasy-7-remake-wiki-guide button to execute a martial technique, the Whirling Uppercut. To access more advanced techniques, you must use Unbridled Strength to increase your chi level. At level two, Tifa will execute Omnistrike, and at level three, Rise and Fall. Upon utilizing an advanced technique, you will expend chi and drop one level.




By pressing ps-triangle-button-final-fantasy-7-remake-wiki-guide, Yuffie can hurl her weapon at a target. Press ps-square-button-final-fantasy-7-remake-wiki-guide while it is away from her to perform long-range ninjutsu attacks. The weapon will return to Yuffie automatically after a certain amount of time. To retrieve it sooner, press ps-triangle-button-final-fantasy-7-remake-wiki-guide again.
