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.

Story[edit | edit source]
Zack Fair meets Aerith Gainsborough in Sector 5 Slums 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.
Geography[edit | edit source]
Overview[edit | edit source]
The Sector 6 slums are filled with debris and abandoned construction sites left from the Sector 6 plate, which fell after an accident. As such, it has few residents, and no residential area as is seen in the Sector 5 Undercity or Sector 7 Undercity. Of the debris left from the fallen plate, the most notable is the Collapsed Expressway, a fallen expressway tunnel in which monsters dwell within the abandoned crushed road.
The main hub of the Sector 6 Slums is Wall Market, a lawless entertainment center walled in on all sides. Another major attraction is the Evergreen Park, a playground frequented by Aerith that is adjacent to a path to the Sector 7 slums. Beneath the slums, a sewer system connects Sector 6 with the Sector 7 plate.
S6-5 Road[edit | edit source]
Featured only in Final Fantasy VII Remake, the S6-5 Road leads directly from the Sector 5 Undercity to Wall Market, with a fork on the road left to the Collapsed Expressway. It is a narrow dirt road through a hole in a wall of the Sector 5 Undercity. The road is surrounded on either side by rubble and debris left from the fallen Sector 6 plate fell, as well as crags and limited vegetation. Halfway along the road is a fallen piece of the Sector 6 plate interior, a winding metal tunnel that leads directly to the Collapsed Expressway.
Collapsed Expressway[edit | edit source]
The Collapsed Expressway forms the remains of an expressway tunnel road from fallen Sector 6 plate. It is located close to the Sector 5 slums, and on the way to the Evergreen Park. The expressway can be navigated through its tunnels, wooden ladders, and through old construction technology, the most notable of which are large robot hands. It has become a home for monsters and a hideout for criminals, whose lairs lie in the lower depths of the expressway ruins, and have graffiti across the walls.
Evergreen Park[edit | edit source]
The Evergreen Park is the site of a playground close to the gate to the Sector 7 Undercity through a wall between the sectors. The playground, frequented by Aerith, has a swing, slide, and tunnel beneath a small climbing frame connected to the S7-6 Service Tunnel to Sector 7. It is located in front of a gate from the Sector 7 Undercity as well as a path to the S7-6 Road to Wall Market. In contrast to its name, the park is mostly concrete and seems to have few visitors.
S7-6 Road[edit | edit source]
The S7-6 Road leads from Wall Market's south entrance to the gate to the Sector 7 Undercity, creating a path directly from the Evergreen Park to Wall Market. In Final Fantasy VII, this is a very short street with shanty houses either side.
In Final Fantasy VII Remake, the road leads along crags and debris, much like the S6-5 Road, though it is a little cleaner, with metal barricades hold up either side of the road, and banners with advertisements for Wall Market's attractions seen on the way. At the road's end by Wall Market is the headquarters for Sam's Delivery Service, ran by Chocobo Sam.
Wall Market[edit | edit source]
The most notable point of interest in the Sector 6 slums, Wall Market is an entertainment quarter and a shopping center that is walled in on all sides, ran by Don Corneo and his subordinates. The market is home to the Honeybee Inn, Corneo's mansion, as well as many attractions including diners, a boutique, a gym, and stores.
Wall Market is also adjacent to a wall that can be climbed to reach the plate above the slums of Sector 6.
Sewers[edit | edit source]
The sewers of Sector 6 are located beneath Wall Market, and connect Sector 6 to the Train Graveyard of the Sector 7 Slums.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Sector 6 is first visited by a party of Cloud and Aeris during "The Woman at the Church" as they travel through the sector in order to return Cloud to Sector 7. It is later revisited in "Aeris's Secret" by a party of Cloud, Barret, and Tifa while they travel through to Aerith's house in Sector 5.
The map comprises only three screens: the Collapsed Expressway linked to the Sector 5 Slum, the Evergreen Park, and a road from the park on the way to Wall Market, the main attraction of Sector 6. Enemies are fought in the collapsed expressway in the form of the Whole Eater and Hell House, but the map itself has little that is noteworthy.
The Sector 6 Slums has a similar role: it is visited by a party of Cloud Strife and Aerith Gainsborough during Chapter 9, "The Town That Never Sleeps," as Aerith escorts Cloud to Sector 7, and later revisited by a party of Cloud Strife, Tifa Lockhart, and Barret Wallace in Chapter 13, "A Broken World," as they travel to Aerith's house. Sidequests also take place through the Sector 6 Slums in Chapter 8 as well as Chapter 14, "In Search of Hope."
The Sector 6 Slums is greatly expanded in Final Fantasy VII Remake. Where the Collapsed Expressway was once the only road from Sector 5 to the Evergreen Park, a new road simply named the S6-5 road connects Sector 5 directly to Wall Market, and the Collapsed Expressway is a detour from this road that bypasses Wall Market to lead straight to the Evergreen Park. The Collapsed Expressway is also greatly expanded in length, includes a minigame in which the robot arm must be operated to move Aerith to reach higher places, and has different enemies fought there, both monsters and also bandits, and the playground in the Evergreen Park can be interacted with.

Flower Wagon[edit | edit source]
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.
