Landscaper is Yuffie's first level 2 Limit in Final Fantasy VII. It is an Earth-elemental attack that hits all enemies for 3 times Yuffie's normal damage, but misses flying targets. Using Landscaper seven times unlocks Bloodfest.

Landscaper is performed by Yuffie causing an earthquake.


Landscaper is obtained by killing 64 enemies with Yuffie. An efficient way to do this is with the Enemy Skill Materia, particularly with Matra Magic, to kill enemies in the Grasslands Area, in the Mythril Mine, or in the forests of the Junon Area. Later on, the large forest in the Nibel Area past Mt. Nibel features a wave of six enemies (Battery Cap) and overall has around 4.4 enemies per encounter.


Landscaper is a powerful attack in the majority of situations, and particularly strong against any enemies weak to Earth. Against flying enemies, or those immune or resistant to Earth, Landscaper is ineffective. In all other scenarios, Landscaper can be an effective way to clear waves of enemies or deal heavy damage to a boss. As it deals physical damage, it is based on Yuffie's Strength stat and currently equipped weapon. Yuffie's stats are average across the board, meaning she can be viably built towards dealing physical damage, though in some cases, players will prefer to keep her Limit on level 1 for Clear Tranquil.

Using Landscaper seven times unlocks Bloodfest, a powerful Limit Break that hits 10 times randomly for 0.625 times Yuffie's base damage. Against single targets, and against flying enemies, Bloodfest is a better choice for Yuffie to use, while Landscaper is good for all other situations. Yuffie's first level 3 Limit Break, Gauntlet, hits all enemies for 1.75 times Yuffie's normal damage, but ignores all enemies' Defense stats. This makes Gauntlet more broadly useful and more reliable, and means it can in many cases deal more damage than Landscaper.
