Achievement locked.

The following is a list of achievements and trophies unlockable in the 2012 PC / 2013 Steam and 2016 PlayStation 4 / 2019 Xbox One re-releases of Final Fantasy VII.

On PC, the player's achievements are loaded in the "achievement.dat" file, found in a folder with the user's ID, within a "FINAL FANTASY VII" folder, within a "Square Enix" folder placed in My Documents by default. The file is a seventy-two bit file: 36 bits relate to the achievements, while the others appear to serve no purpose. The achievement order corresponds to the bit, with the first (End of Part I) corresponding to the eightieth bit, then each achievement thereafter is the previous bit, down until the last (Dice) which corresponds to the forty-fifth bit. If the player were to edit this file in a hex-editor and change it to read "0000000fffffffff00" the player can receive all achievements. However, this will only save to the system if the edits are made while in the game.

Behind the scenes

The achievements for characters' final limit breaks are obtained by learning them by using the limit manual item in the menu, not by actually using the limit break in battle.

Upon beating the PC version of the game the player will have obtained at least seven achievements automatically: Won 1st Battle, Battle Square, End of Part I, Diamond Weapon, End of Part II, Omnislash, End of Game (it would also be difficult to beat the game without gaining the seven achievements for the first limit breaks of the required characters). Upon beating the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One version of the game, the player will have obtained at least five automatically: First Blood, Breaking New Ground, Chocochampion, Diamond Disintegrator and A Feat of Meteoric Proportions. However, unlike the PC version, the player is not credited with the achievement for learning Omnislash simply for reaching the final battle, and must have actually learned it from the manual in order to be credited for it.

The achievement notification for End of Part I will appear when the game internally sets the main story variable to after Aerith's death, causing it to obscure part of the video of Cloud putting her body to rest.
