Yuffie has come to Midgar at the behest of the interim Wutai government to wrest a powerful orb of materia from Shinra's evil clutches. First, however, she must find her Avalanche coconspirators, and to do that, she has to look for posters of moogles and a man with a moogle hat.

Description

Wutai's Finest is the first chapter of "Episode INTERmission" in Final Fantasy VII Remake, taking place in the Sector 7 Slums. The chapter comprises the first half of the episode, as Yuffie Kisaragi arrives in Midgar.

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

Yuffie came to Midgar to steal a legendary materia from the Shinra Electric Power Company, rumored of being in the works. She made her way through the mostly abandoned slum areas littered with rubble and monsters, shocked at the state of the supposed megalopolis. She ran into strange men dressed in long dark cloaks with number tattoos on their arms, who did not defend themselves even when monsters attacked them. She was crept out how the men were acting and made haste to the slums' inhabited area by following moogle posters from Avalanche to guide her.

Yuffie surprised the local neighborhood watch by arriving from the monster-infested scrapyard and made her way to the local clinic that had a moogle doll outside. The clinic was actually a front for a local Avalanche cell, led by Zhijie and ran by Nayo, Billy Bob, and Polk. Yuffie learned her partner, Sonon Kusakabe, was not there though he had arrived days ago, and scouted out the area while waiting for him to return. She learned to play Fort Condor, a tabletop tower defense game that had gained popularity recently, and took on Chadley's VR mission. She found a Wutai supporter called Old Snapper advertising the Happy Turtle bar with an unusual campaign; Yuffie took part and scored a materia as a reward. She impressed Wymer, the local neighborhood watch leader, by venturing into the abandoned factory in the area despite the monsters that lurked within.

Yuffie meets Sonon at Avalanche's hideout.

Finally meeting up with Sonon, the two teamed up to infiltrate the Shinra Building and make way to Scarlet's weapons research facility in the basement. Sonon was a former student of Yuffie's father, the former leader of Wutai, Godo Kisaragi, who was currently imprisoned while a new government had taken over. Yuffie did not want to hear about her father, but Sonon still respected his old master, and so agreed to follow Yuffie's lead even if he was her senior. Yuffie was pleased with her status as "boss", and the mission was underway.

They realized their goals differed from the aims of the Avalanche cell that had agreed to help them; while Yuffie and Sonon felt but hatred for Midgar and Shinra both, the Avalanche members sought to liberate the city from Shinra. Yuffie considered it impossible to separate the two, the city being entirely Shinra's creation. Yuffie and Sonon learned of the infamous "splinter cell" of Avalanche that also took residence in the slums, which was behind the recent attacks on Midgar's mako reactors. Yuffie thought the splinter cell had the right idea on how to attack both city and Shinra at the same time, and secretly thought they should have partnered with them instead. Barret and Tifa Lockhart were members of this splinter cell, returning from their bombing mission on Mako Reactor 5, looking dejected, informing Biggs that they had lost contact with the hired member of the group, the mercenary Cloud Strife.

Corneo's lackeys looking for "bridal candidates".

When Nayo took Yuffie and Sonon to meet a contact who would provide them with forged Shinra employee ID cards to get into the Shinra Building, they were accosted by Don Corneo's lackeys looking for "bridal candidates" to recommend to the Trio back in Wall Market. They took a liking to Nayo, infuriating Yuffie when being overlooked for "being a kid". They beat the lackeys up who departed after hearing they had secured an excellent candidate already.

Nayo, Yuffie, and Sonon met up with the contact in a warehouse who gave them Shinra ID cards. Zhijie had gotten into trouble, however, Shinra having arrested him and currently escorting him out to the factory in the outskirts. Yuffie and Sonon followed them and saved Zhijie while battling a Shinra mecha built to resemble a centipede. Zhijie had learned Shinra was going to destroy the Sector 7 slums, and Yuffie asked him to inform the "splinter cell" as well. They returned to find the "clinic" ransacked, the locals shocked that an Avalanche hideout had been uncovered in their midst. Yuffie and Sonon made their way to the train station where the last train heading to topside was about to depart, as the train schedule had become erratic after the recent bombing on Mako Reactor 5. To their relief, they spotted Nayo, Billy Bob, and Polk in the crowd, also leaving the slums.
