Enemy Intel

Sahagin is an enemy in Final Fantasy VII Remake, fought in the Sewer System in Chapter 10, "Rough Waters", and in Chapter 14, "In Search of Hope". They wield spears and have hard shells that make them hardy. They turn party members into frogs.



Harpoon Hurl.

Sahagin have high physical defense, and use the Jump ability, which can deal high damage and knock down characters if they're not blocking. When fought in high numbers, they can quickly overpower players with a succession of Jumps, effectively stunlocking the party. Sahagins hurl their harpoons at their victims, and cast a spell called Salientian Curse, both which can inflict Toad Toad. Upon throwing their spears they will fight unnarmed, losing the ability to use Jump, and will instead perform a significantly weaker attack called Flying Kick.

Sahagin are weak to Fire Fire and fire and ice spells can be used to stagger them.


It is best to try evade or block the sahagin's jump attacks.

Magic works best against the Sahagin. During Chapter 10, the party's best spellcaster is Aerith who can also augment her spells with Arcane Ward. In Chapter 14, the party's best spellcaster is Cloud. Sahagin can be also be pressured using Tifa's Unbridled Strength martial techniques.

When the sahagin appear alongside scissorclaw, the player can use fire or ice spells (sahagin are weak to fire, the scissorclaws are weak to ice) with Magnify Materia Magnify Materia to damage both groups of enemies, as both sport hard shells and resist physical damage. Though the sahagin are not weak to Ice Ice, blizzard spells still stagger them quicker than wind or thunder.

Hard Mode[]

Aerith can pair fire materia with MP Absorption Materia MP Absorption Materia or HP Absorption Materia HP Absorption Materia and focus on spellcasting while using Arcane Ward. Cloud or Tifa can either pair fire materia with Elemental Materia Elemental Materia or spellcast themselves from within Aerith's ward. With First Strike Materia First Strike Materia and ATB Boost Materia ATB Boost Materia, Aerith can open every battle with Arcane Ward, followed by ATB Boost, and then use Fira Fira to instantly stagger or destroy one of the sahagin, allowing Tifa and Cloud to finish them off. Since the final combat challenge of Chapter 10 is against sahagin, the player is free to expend all MP here.

In Chapter 14, Parry Materia Parry Materia is ideal to avoid the sahagin's Jump attacks for Tifa, while Cloud and Barret equip Steadfast Block Materia Steadfast Block Materia.



Sahuagin are fishlike, monstrous humanoids that appear in the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game.
