Final Fantasy Wiki

Final Fantasy VII Remake has five enemy types, which classify each of its enemies in the Enemy Intel screen. Each enemy type has unique properties, and many are resistant to a specific element. There are main five types, which refer to the biology of the enemy, and also two sub-types that refer to their movement.
