Final Fantasy VII - Unescapable Random Encounter Glitch

Glitch in action

The inescapable battles glitch is a glitch in Final Fantasy VII where the player is unable to escape random encounters in certain areas after a boss fight. This glitch arises from the flag for "inescapable" not yet being turned off until the player leaves the screen, rendering all random encounters inescapable after the boss has been defeated.

There are four areas in the game where this occurs: 59th Floor of Shinra HQ during the first raid, after killing the three Mighty Grunts; Temple of the Ancients, after killing Red Dragon; Gaea's Cliff, in the area after the player kills Schizo; and in the subway tunnel in Midgar on disc 2, after beating Turks:Rude, Turks:Reno and Turks:Elena.
