Template:FFVII Enemies Vice is an enemy in Final Fantasy VII. They are encountered in the Sector 5 Slums at anytime once you leave the Sector 5 Church. Vice will steal items from you and escape, however, if they are killed before they escape, the item will be returned to you. If they escape, the item is lost forever, so it is advised to kill them quickly, perhaps via magic.

Although Vice has five attacks, it will only ever use three of them under normal circumstances; Vice will never use the move Seize, and it may only use Hit if under Manipulate or Berserk. It will use Steal and Grind equally, and will use Escape once an item has been stolen from the player.

Beyond stealing items, however, Vice is not a dangerous foe, and can be very useful because the player can steal Speed Drinks from them, which is the only way to cast Haste until Gongaga several hours of gameplay later.
