During Cloud's flashback in Kalm, before sleeping for the night

*** NIVL: Nibelheim ***

Talk to the soldier

If you haven't talked to Zangan at the inn

Man... I'm so nervous.

How come?

Look, you never know when a monster's gonna show up, right?

I'm excited.

...That's right. Don't blow your chance to become a hero...

If you talked to Zangan

Hey, if you don't calm down, you won't get a good evaluation...

Talk to the guy with white shirt

Before he recognizes you

I heard Sephiroth was coming and got my camera ready.

I want a shot of Sephiroth and a monster.

Take my picture.

I don't take pictures with nobodys.

Better get back in the house, it's dangerous.

All right... So big-headed...

Hey? This guy's a real...

You... Are you Cloud?

Really? So that's how it is, huh?

After he recognizes you

Gosh, Cloud, you've grown up to be a nice-looking lad.

Then take my picture

Let's do this, Cloud. Let me take a picture of you with Sephiroth.

It's dangerous, get back in your house

OK, OK,...... So big-headed... You're just his assistant

Talk to the guy standing near the mountain

Before he recognizes you

Hmm? You from Shinra?

That's right!

Geez... Big-headed young kid.

Who are you?

I'm the town's... ...... ......!?

Aren't you Cloud?

Don't you know me?

Cloud:

You're Tifa's...

Right. I'm Tifa's father.

Tifa's father:

...I want you to stay away from my daughter.

After he recognizes you

Tifa's father:

We don't need the Shinra's help to protect our town!

Cloud:

...Long time no see, sir.

Is that you, Cloud?" ......Yeah ......No

...Mom?

Here, I've brought you something!

Don't tell anyone in town!

Received "Homemade Potion!

During Cloud's flashback in Kalm, after sleeping but before taking picture with Sephiroth

*** NIVL: Nibelheim ***

Talk to the soldier

...Late again.

Talk to the other soldier

I was so nervous. I couldn't get any sleep...

Talk to the guy with white shirt

Think they'd let me take a picture?

Talk to Tifa's father

Tifa's father:

If I knew this was going to happen, I would've made mountain climbing off limits...

During Cloud's flashback in Kalm, after taking picture with Sephiroth

*** NIVL: Nibelheim ***

Talk to the guy with white shirt

What's Sephiroth doing?

Before coming back from the reactor

Talk to Tifa's father

Tifa's father:

I hate myself for asking you this, but...

Don't take your eyes off of Tifa! Hurry up and go back to her side!

After coming back from the reactor

Talk to Zangan

Zangan:

There's nothing that'll harm the town, right?

Why...?

Cloud:

...Why do you ask?

Zangan:

The Shinra showed up to eliminate any information that could be an embarrassment to the company...

You pick these things up when you travel as much as I do.

No way!

Cloud:

It's Sephiroth. He would never do that.

Zangan:

...Oh my. You sure do have faith.

Talk to Tifa's father

Tifa's father:

Until we know that there's no danger, we're not moving.

After visiting Cosmo Canyon, before Meteor is summoned

*** NIVL_3: Nibelheim ***

If you haven't run into Sephiroth in the mansion basement

If you've run into Sephiroth in the mansion basement

Inn

First floor of the house on the top left

*** NIVINN_1: Nibelheim Inn ***

During Cloud's flashback in Kalm, before taking picture with Sephiroth

Talk to the innkeeper. Due to a programming glitch, if you talked to the kids in Aeris's church, the game will behave as if he recognized Cloud.

Before he recognizes Cloud

The, uh... The whole inn's booked up by Shinra for the night.

......?

Cloud...?

Is it you, Cloud?

It must've been two years.

Say, you've really moved up in the world, being under Sephiroth's command.

After he recognizes Cloud

So, what do you need, Cloud?

Where's Sephiroth?

Before sleeping for the night

Yeah, he's upstairs.

After sleeping

...I think you probably know better than I do, but...

Give me a room to stay.

It's all reserved for you Shinra people, so I don't mind. But, wouldn't you feel more comfortable staying at home?

Let me know the situation of the town.

Due to a programming glitch, you will not be able to see Aeris's ghost in her church once he tells this story

If he has already told the story

It's the same story I always tell. You still want to hear it?

Yeah, tell me again

No, that's all right

If you asked to hear the story

Now about the town...

A lot of monsters have been appearing in the last 12 months.

Other than that, there's not much change. Nothing much exciting happens in a little town like this.

It was all right when they were building the reactor.

...while they were still building it.

But once it was completed,it's been bad.

Within a few years, all the trees on the mountain withered away.

I don't know if the reactor was good or bad...

I mean it's easy to say that it was a bad idea now. But now, what can you do about it...?

Anyhow we've got to get rid of the monsters...

Then,we'll all be able to relax a little bit.

Talk to Zangan

......Hmmmm

Is Shinra here to get rid of the monsters?

Cloud:

And who are you?

I'm Zangan. I travel around the world teaching children martial arts.

Zangan:

I have 128 students all over the world!

In this town,a girl named Tifa is my student.

Cloud:

Did you say Tifa?

Zangan:

Tifa has good sense. She'll be a powerful fighter.

Talk to Zangan again

Zangan:

I want to see some Shinra techniques.

And if you see anything you can use, you might want to incorporate some of my techniques.

Well, good luck.

During Cloud's flashback in Kalm, after taking picture with Sephiroth

Talk to the innkeeper

Hey, you want to rest?

Yes, please

It's already been paid for. Go on, get some rest.

Forget it

Talk to Zangan

Zangan:

Oh? Did you come crying home?

After visiting Cosmo Canyon, before Meteor is summoned

Talk to the innkeeper

Hi, welcome.

Give me a room

It'll be 100 gil a night. Is that all right with you?

Yes.

If you have enough money

Enjoy your stay.

If you don't have enough money

You......don't have enough money.

Never mind.

Well then, maybe next time...

What's your story?

First time

Cloud:

This town was supposed to have been burnt down five years ago.

What the hell is going on?

Sir, don't say such awful things.

I was born and raised in this town. What you say never happened.

If Tifa is in the party

Tifa:

You're lying...

EXCUSE ME......That's so rude...

If you're going to talk like that to me, I'm going to have to ask you to leave.

Afterwards

Oh, I'm so sorry. I've got lots to do...

Talk to the black dude in the back

Cloud:

Man in a Black Cape?

If you haven't received the item here or the Mind Source outside

If you get this item, you won't be able to get the Mind Source outside

Cloud:

He has a tattoo number '6'. Hmm? He has something...

Get Luck Source

Urrr......rrrrr......rrrgh... must...go...to...Re...uni...on...

After Meteor is summoned

...Welcome. It's 100 gil a night......

Spend the night.

If you have enough money

Enjoy your stay.

If you don't have enough money

You......don't have enough money.

Don't stay.

Really...

Really, somethin'

You used to be such a scrawny little boy, and now look at you......

You STILL haven't found one yet?

I'll let you in on a secret...

The Shinra's really not too popular in this town.

You know what I mean, right?

You were born here, so you know.

Will we be able to use this place too?

I checking the Mako boiler. Please don't bother me now.

Check the desk in Tifa's room

Periodic Report to Professor Hojo 1 Clone Activity Report Unfortunately, no 'CLONES'have left this town this quarter. As previously reported, the 'CLONES 'seem to be sensing something. But all they say is, 'reunion' or 'Sephiroth' and show no other signs of activity.

2 Confidentiality Report A total of eight people have visited this town this quarter. Fortunately, none knew about the incident five years ago. Therefore, no one knows the town was restored exactly as it was five years ago. Our staff, disguised as townspeople have improved their acting skills, and we do not report any problems at this time. That is all.

Check the piano in Tifa's room

If Tifa is the party leader

Tifa:

Cloud... Cloud was playing.

If you played the piano during the flashback in Kalm

I wonder what...this is...

If you can hold more materia

Get Elemental materia

If you can't hold any more materia

It looks like Materia, but I can't hold any more.

If Cloud is the party leader

After visiting Cosmo Canyon, before Meteor is summoned, if you played the piano during the flashback in Kalm

Cloud:

But...I definitely remember playing the piano then. But why didn't it get burnt down?

Cloud:

Play the piano......?

No, forget it

Aw, go for it

...Now, how did this go?

I forgot

[X] Do [Square] Re [Triangle] Mi [O] Fa (R1) or (L1) and [X] So (R1) or (L1) and [Square] La (R1) or (L1) and [Triangle] Ti (R1) or (L1) and [O] Do Directional key Down Do Mi So (C) Directional key Left Do Fa La (F) Directional key Up Re So Ti (G) Directional key Right Mi So Do (C) Start button End

I remember

It was Start button to finish. Start button End

Play the Highwind melody (Do Re Mi Ti La Do Re Mi So Fa Do Re Do)

I've heard this melody somewhere before. Managed to play well...

After Meteor is summoned, if you have Tifa in the party

Tifa:

I have the sheet music for that song.

Huh? Wait a minute! There's something inside the music sheet.

Tifa, what's happened to our town? Was it all an illusion, or just a dream? No, it was neither. I remember trying to get people out of the flames, but not having the strength... Burning with anger, I went to the reactor to kill Sephiroth.

But he was nowhere to be found. Instead, I found you, collapsed inside. I felt saving you was far more important than going after Sephiroth. There were several others that were still alive inside, but I was only able to save you.

As I was coming out of the reactor, Shinra troops were just arriving. I recall a scientist named Hojo was in charge. He ordered the troops to gather up everyone still alive for the experiment. I didn't know what type of experiment he was talking about, but I wasn't about to let them have my dearest student.

Putting you on my back, I headed down the mountain to the village. I used the Cure spell on you many times.

And started to head for Midgar to look for a doctor for you. I don't like that city, but my Cure spells weren't helping.

I decided to go to Midgar to find a doctor I could trust. I'm worried about you, but I can't settle down in one place for very long. Have you recovered fully? Are you well?

I wonder how many years have passed since then? I just got into town again, but I can't believe it... The whole town is back to normal, except for the strange beings with black clothes all around...

The town reeks of Shinra, but I won't go after them. You may think I'm running from them, but it's just that I don't want anything to do with Shinra anymore. Feels like time is running out.

I'm sure you'll find this letter. And this gift for you. It should come in handy. I can't even jump anymore. But I hope you continue to sharpen your skills and remember what I taught you.

To my most precious student, From Zangan

Get Final Heaven

Play the piano twice

I wonder what...this is...

Tifa's secret savings, 1 gil came out of the keyboard.

After visiting Cosmo Canyon, before Meteor is summoned

Talk to the kid in the back

Nice town, huh?

We've been in business here for a long time...

Cloud:

...You're lying.

Do you have anything to do with this town?

How about bein' born and raised here?

Cloud:

I was here until I was 14 and I don't remember you.

It's not nice to lie!!

Nope, guess not

Talk to the kid

How can you shop at a time like this?

What? 'Me, in business'?

Don't worry, it's all right. I get paid by the company.

My real job is to protect the secret of Nibelheim.

What? Secret?

We don't have a clue. But it's all right.

It's all over anyway!

The end, the end, the end!! Yeah, even as we speak, Meteor...! The End...!
