In the PC re-release of Final Fantasy VII, defeating the MPs earns the player the "Won 1st Battle" achievement.
In the full releases of the game, only Cloud (called EX-SOLDIER) appears during this fight, but in the 1996 Demo release, Barret and Aeris join him, despite Barret having proceeded already. The guards also appear differently before the battle; they are a much darker blue, with their masks' features less visible, and their name is Security Troops rather than MP. In a later demo version, Cloud fights this battle alongside Tifa.
- Note: The way the AI is programmed suggests that the Machine Gun ability was meant to be a Long Range ability, but it isn't.
Military police (MP) are police organizations connected with, or part of, the military of a state.
