FF7 Remake: How to Learn Every Enemy Skill

Spread the love

Enemy skills in Final Fantasy 7 Remake are abilities you can acquire by using the Enemy Skill materia and fighting specific monsters. Enemy skills are incredibly useful to have and if you obtain all of them, you’ll unlock the Master of Mimicry achievement which rewards players with a rare silver trophy. The concept sounds simple but there are few steps you need to take before you’re ready to learn every enemy skill FF7 Remake has to offer.

How Do I Get the Enemy Skill Materia?
The Enemy Skill materia can be acquired from Chadley, an NPC you first encounter in Chapter 3 – Home Sweet Slum and see in later chapters as well. Chadley asks you to collect Battle Intel in exchange for new materia he’ll sell to you, with the first usually being at an incredibly reduced price. This includes the Enemy Skill materia which can only be obtained after you complete the “Monster Bio Pt. 4” Battle Intel report, which requires you to assess 30 different enemy types.
