Beachplug is an enemy in Final Fantasy VII found on the beaches in the Corel Area, Gold Saucer Area, and Gongaga Area, and can also be fought in the seventh round of the Battle Square before the player obtains the Tiny Bronco. When fought in the Battle Square its stats are enhanced with double the normal HP and its Attack and Magic Attack are increased by 25%.

The Beachplug has the valuable Big Guard enemy skill to learn, and they morph into Turbo Ethers.


  1. Beachplug never uses Big Guard, unless Manipulated.

By using the Manipulate command on it, the party can learn the Enemy Skill Big Guard. Because Big Guard is one of the most useful Enemy Skills in the game, fighting Beachplug just to learn the spell is advisable. The player can't learn the skill from the Battle Square encounter; even if the character appears to have learned it, the spell will be gone from the Materia when they are transported back to the Battle Square area.

After gaining the Morph Materia from the Temple of the Ancients, the player can return to the beach near Costa del Sol and morph the Beachplugs into the valuable Turbo Ethers. The process is made easier by using the L4 Suicide on them first.


Casting Beta or Aqualung will take out a group of them.
