Sector 6 is a little dangerous so you'd better get some rest tonight.Aeris
Sector 6 is one of the eight sectors that make up Midgar in Final Fantasy VII. It is under the Shinra Electric Power Company's control. Like every sector of the metropolis, it is composed of both Slums and Plate sections, although only the Slums section is visited in the games.
Zack Fair meets Aerith Gainsborough in Sector 5 Church and later the two spend time in the Sector 6 park where the two discuss SOLDIER and its members' extraordinary powers. Aerith lets Zack know she is wary of SOLDIER, and gets embarrassed when Zack says he is part of the organization. Aerith reveals she is afraid of the sky, but thinks Zack's eyes have a glow in them that resembles it, only it's less frightening to her. Their time is cut short when Zack receives orders to return to the Shinra Headquarters.
Later on Zack builds various flower carts for Aerith to sell flowers in the park, although this does not work out well.
Sector 6 is the last unfinished sector, its plate either having never been completed before the battle with Zirconiade, or requiring extensive reconstruction. A massive gouge is apparent on the scale model of the plate in Shinra Headquarters.
Much of the Sector 6 slums, bar Wall Market, are in a state of ruin, with monsters running rampant and large chunks of debris littering the ground. When Cloud Strife is trying to find his way to Sector 7, Aeris sets to help him. They cross the debris and find themselves in the park, where Aeris wants to take a break.
She reminisces of her time with Zack, and tells Cloud about him. The gate to Sector 7 opens and a chocobo cart emerges with Tifa Lockhart onboard. Recognizing her, Cloud calls out to her, but she does not respond. Aeris and Cloud follow her to Wall Market, although Cloud tries to make Aeris return home.
Sector 6 remains relatively unscathed by the fall of Sector 7 plate, only the park being heavily damaged. Having barely escaped Sector 7 in a nick of time, Barret, Tifa and Cloud organize themselves at the park. Barret mourns for his friends, Biggs, Wedge, and Jessie, and his daughter Marlene. Tifa tells him Aeris has taken Marlene to safety, and the trio leaves the park to look for her.
Sector 6, along with the rest of Midgar, is destroyed by Meteor.
In Final Fantasy VII Remake, it is explained that the Sector 6 suffered a similar disaster to the one that Shinra later inflicts on Sector 7, with the upper plate having fallen on it. The area was under construction at the time and few people were living there, hence there were few casualties. Never rebuilt, the sector has become a lawless area home to bandits and abandoned machinery. Strewn throughout are several mechanical hand cranes for the moving of crates, which Cloud and Aerith employ to travel through the sector.
The road connects the streets of the Sector 5 Slums at the south end with the Green Park in Sector 6 at its north end. The road is heavily damaged and filled with abandoned construction material. Parts of the road's unfinished upper layer the straight path along the lower level, and can only be navigated with tunnels, wooden ladders, and bridges made of the abandoned construction material. A fence with posters alongside it can be seen on the left-hand side of the road.
The Green Park is found at the end of the road. It is home to a playground with a swing, slide, and tunnel, and a single cubicle which presumably contains a bathroom, but otherwise is filled entirely with abandoned construction material. At the back of the Green Park is a gate leading to Sector 7 which the player cannot access, and to the right of this is the road to Wall Market. The southern entrance to the park has its name written in Japanese.
After the plate has fallen, the gate is filled instead blocked by debris. The area is also smoke-filled, the cubicle as fallen, and the slide has embedded debris in the top.
Wall Market is the most notable point of interest in Sector 6. It is a lively shopping center with several stores in tents, home to the Honey Bee Inn and the mansion of Don Corneo. It is also home to a diner, a boutique, a bar, a gym, an inn, and many stores that sell items. Wall Market is also adjacent to a wall that can be climbed to reach the plate above the slums of Sector 6.
The path to Wall Market is a bending road leading from Green Park. Like most of Midgar's slums, the path has several houses made from scrap along either side and a dirt floor.
The plate above the slums of Sector 6 can be climbed from the Wall Market to reach Sector 0 from a dangling cable. Much like the rest of Sector 6, the plate is unfinished, with construction material and machinery along the climb upwards. Many of the machines are missing batteries required to operate them.
All enemies are encountered in the road connecting Sector 5 and the Sector 6 Green Park, and the enemies encountered are the Hell House or the Whole Eaters. The Hell House is a large enemy with high HP, which can be a mild threat due to its damage if not handled properly. It is best defeated using magic spells to shave away its HP. The Whole Eaters are a much more minor threat, but are encountered in greater numbers. Magic spells linked with the All Materia are effective, though they can be defeated in two or three physical attacks.
The game has a hidden affection value that determines whom Cloud will go on a date with in Gold Saucer later. The value is determined by the dialogue and party member choices made prior to the date.
In the Sector 6 playground:
- "See her home." (No change)
- "Go on to to Sector 7" (+1 Aeris)
The gate where the chocobo cart comes through in Final Fantasy VII actually leads to the area in Sector 7 that is always blocked off by two Shinra officers. The player is not intended to take this route in-game, but it is possible via a hack or through a series of frame-perfect movements. Doing this can lead to a bypass event glitch, skipping the entire Sector 5 Reactor events and meeting with Aeris, although a Lv 1 Aeris is added to the party if the player initiates the events at Wall Market.
To get to the Sector 6 park from the main area of Sector 6 the player must run through an area with random encounters. This area contains lots of scrap. There is a girder in this area that allows the player to move from the ground to a higher level to proceed, however the game does not make this clear.
The girder is actually a field model and not part of the 2D background. Another hidden model in the data is a model known as "wire". If this model is turned on it becomes apparent it is attached to the crane and the grip is around the girder. One of the field background states lights up the inside of the crane.
Since the crane does not serve a purpose and has the wire model related to it, as well as the girder model having no reason to be a model, it is likely the player would have had to have moved, lowered, or rotated the girder with the crane as an earlier idea for the game. Pre-release shots show the area without the girder in its usual position.

Zack can find various parts during his adventures to make different models of flower carts for Aerith.
There are three different wagons Zack can build for Aerith if he has all the parts. After building the first wagon Zack is told to go back to the Shinra Headquarters where Kunsel gives Zack the opportunity to go back to see Aerith. Upon speaking with her Zack can build a second wagon, and must again go back to the headquarters. If Zack goes back to see Aerith for the third time they can build a third flower wagon.
- First Wagon
- Used Tools: Outside Sector 5 Church there are two glowing objects on the ground. The one on the left is the tools, the other one is a helmet.
- Old Lumber: There is a piece of wood at the slums market, near the entrance. The carpenter will give it if Zack can come up with a name for his tavern. The correct answer is 'Seventh Heaven'.
- Worn Tires: The man standing by a vehicle in LOVELESS Avenue will give them.
- Wagon Instructions: After collecting the three objects Zack can go back the shiny helmet in front of the church to find the instructions.
- Second Wagon
- Craftsman Monthly: Reward for beating Mission 1-2-6.
- Walnut Wood: Zack must catch all six Wutai spies.
- Premium Tires: After beating all the Recall Missions, Zack can talk to SOLDIER 3rd Class in Briefing Room in Shinra Building to get the Premium Tires.

- Third Wagon
All the items are rewards for playing the squats minigame in the training room of Shinra Headquarters. The items are: Shinra lunch cart specs, Shinra ceramic, Shinra treads 8, and Shinra solder.
