Template:FFVII Enemy The Mono Drive is an enemy in Final Fantasy VII. It is encountered in the Sector 1 Reactor, the opening location of the game, and in the north section of the Train Graveyard soon after. It is also a possible encounter in the opening round of the Battle Square before obtaining the Tiny Bronco. In the Battle Square it has enhanced stats with double the normal HP and 25% higher Attack and Magic Attack.

The Mono Drive uses its first turn to state either "Enemy Sighted!" or "Warning! Warning!". It is then supposed to use its Drilldrive to attack intruders that are in the front row and fire spells on back row targets. However, due to a bug in the AI script, the Mono Drive attacks the front and back row indiscriminately. It randomly judges party members' Defense or Magic Defense and will attack the one who has the lowest in either of these stats, with Drilldrive for the first case and Fire in second. If it ever runs out of MP, the Mono Drive will use only Drilldrive.


Mono Drive enemies have low HP, and therefore can be simply dispatched with one Attack. However, one should prioritize attacking them; their Fire spell deals more damage than most other early-game enemy attacks.
