Alone at Last is a discovery sidequest in Chapter 3, "Home Sweet Slum", in Final Fantasy VII Remake, taking place in the Sector 7 Slums. It is unlocked after all previous sidequests are completed. After Cloud Strife and Tifa Lockhart completed a number of quests, Tifa recommends Cloud return to their apartments in Stargazer Heights, where Cloud will be paid.

This quest is required to affect dress mechanics for Tifa in Chapter 9, "The Town That Never Sleeps", as well as to affect affection mechanics for her in Chapter 14, "In Search of Hope".


Travel to Stargazer Heights, where the two will talk to Marle. After some dialogue, she will ask them both to replace the filters in their room. Head upstairs, and interact with the sink on the left to change the filter. Next, head left to Tifa's room, and talk to her.

After a cutscene, dialogue will commence in which Cloud discusses his time after leaving Tifa in the village. Tifa then suggests the two celebrate by dressing up and partying. She will then ask Cloud what he thinks would suit her, with the options "Something refined", "Something... sporty?", or "Something... exotic?". These outcomes affect the dress Tifa will wear in "The Town That Never Sleeps". Selecting "Something refined" will cause her to wear an indigo minidress with matching heels (the default dress), selecting "Something sporty?" will cause her to wear a black leopard print cheongsam with her hair up in "odango" buns, and selecting "Something... exotic?" will cause her to wear a short black kimono-style dress.

After selecting an option, dialogue continues, after which, head downstairs and talk to Marle again, concluding the sidequest. She will award a crescent moon charm.

Behind the scenes[]

Dialogue choice.

Among Tifa's dresses, just over half of players (51%) reported seeing her "mature" dress, suggesting they either did not reach "Alone at Last" or answered "Something mature". This was followed by 31% who saw her third "exotic" dress and 18% who saw her second "sporty" dress.[1]
