Cid Pollendina: Oh, shut up and help me remodel the Mt. Corel page!
Please expand this article into a full one. The following tasks need to be completed:
  • Adding a Locations section with images and brief descriptions of the areas within the whole location.

This request can be discussed on the associated discussion page. Remove this notice upon completion.

Mt. Corel is a location in Final Fantasy VII. It is a mountain that divides the area around Costa del Sol from the rest of the western continent. The town of North Corel in the Gold Saucer Area is located just at the foot of the mountain. There is also a mako reactor on the mountain. The mountain can be traveled via long abandoned stretches of an abandoned railroad system.

Mt. Corel has enemy formations with as much as five enemies (the maximum in one encounter), making it a desirable place to unlock a new level in Limit Breaks.

Story[edit | edit source]

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Cloud and his party cross the mountain during their search for Sephiroth. Later, Shinra Electric Power Company tries to transport a Huge Materia out of the Mt. Corel Reactor, only to have their coal train captured by the party, temporarily led by Cid Highwind. Depending on the player's actions, the town of North Corel can be saved or destroyed.

Mt. Corel is also seen in a flashback sequence when Barret tells the story how he lost his friend Dyne and what happened to his hometown.

Spoilers end here.

Quests[edit | edit source]

Pitfalls[edit | edit source]

Falling into a pitfall on the tracks.

Throughout the rail bridges there are various holes in the structure, although in three of these the player will fall over the holes the first time they step on them. Holding Circle and Left or Right during the fall, players may find an item while climbing back up. However, if the player presses Circle repeatedly, they can avoid falling into the hole.

The player can grab a Wizard Staff when falling and holding Circle and Left, and the Star Pendant when holding Circle and Right. Both are available to get before passing beyond the third atmospheric wall in the Whirlwind Maze.

Cokatolis Nest[edit | edit source]

Nest has 10 Phoenix Downs.

The player can find a bird nest by climbing up the side of a railway track after crossing the upper bridge where bird sounds are heard, and choose to "Take the treasure" or "Leave it where it is". If the player chooses to take the treasure, they have to fight a Cokatolis and then receive 10 Phoenix Downs. Choosing not to means these items are lost forever.

This is available before the conversation initial of Barret with the people in North Corel.

Mt. Corel Huge Materia[edit | edit source]

This Huge Materia quest starts outside the Corel Reactor section of Mt. Core. It can be undertaken after dropping off Tifa at Mideel when Cid as the party leader. It may be done either before or after the Fort Condor Reactor Huge Materia quest.

Two Shinra soldiers outside the reactor will be encountered as a pair of Attack Squad enemies. After this the coal train carrying Huge Materia exits the reactor, and Cid gets another coal train to follow it.

Items[edit | edit source]

On the train tracks themselves the player can find:

In a cave to the left of the screen that is right before entering the screen to the rope bridge, the player can find the following items:

Near the Mako Reactor the player can battle Bagnadranas and steal the Diamond Pin weapon for Red XIII and morph them into Guard Sources, rare items that raise a character's Vitality stat.
