Template:FFVII Enemies 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 is a possible encounter in the Battle Square opening round before the player obtains 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. If it ever runs out of MP, the Mono Drive will use only Drilldrive.
