Any character whose hit points are reduced to 7777 after an attack gets all lucky 7’s effect. The character goes in to a mad rage and begins attacking the enemy non-stop landing a hit for 7777 points of damage each time. To get this you must first get your characters HP over 7777. this means all lucky 7’s affect can only happen to high level characters, or those equipped with several hp plus Materia. You must also be very lucky since a attack must knock that character down to exactly 7777 HP. it can happen but its not likely to happen when you want it to. Also after a battle where a characters hit points are 7777, that characters HP is reduced to 1. So you cant carry this effect over in to another battle. I have not yet found a way to get this effect by equipping Materia and equipment, but that’s not to say that it cant be done.
When you feel you are ready to go and face the awesome ruby weapon, be sure to have Cait Sith in you team. Cait Sith is the only character that can annihilate the mighty beast with ease. Before entering the battle make sure you have Cait Sith limit break ready to use and that you have equipted his level 2 limit ‘slots’. Also kill off your two other characters to make sure Cait Sith is not killed straight away with ‘rubys quick sand’ attack. When ready enter the battle, and select Cait Siths limit slots, now, you have to line up the 3 parts of Cait Siths face to cause instant death to all enemies, but be warned that lining up 2 parts of his face and a bar will cause your team instant death. This can be hard to pull off, but keep trying. The benefit of this is saving hours trying to beat the giant beast the hard way.
Early in the game, Gil is limited. Here are a few ways of gaining additional Gil. Ethers aren’t vitally important in the game. It’s alot cheaper sleeping at a hotel to restore your MP instead of using an Ether. Sell your Ethers, but keep one or two in reserve, just in case. Each Ether sold gives you 750 Gil. When you first get your ALL materia in the game, attempt to Master it quickly. Give it to a person equipped with an AP-doubling weapon. By the 2nd disc you would have hopefully mastered this materia and sell it for 1,400,000 Gil. Do this, and you’ve got it made for the rest of the game. If you have little sentimental value for old weapons and armor, these can be sold too. However, some weapons can only be found once and not be bought, so if you sell them, they disappear permanently. As a note, it would be best to keep old weapons that double your AP or have many materia slots. If you want to be super cheap, consider sleeping at places that restore your HP and MP for free. Aeris’ House in Midgar and the house in Junon are such examples.
This trick requires the W-Item materia. The materia is obtained after your party parachutes back into Midgar in Disc 3. After entering the subway tunnels in Sector 8, your party may walk away from the screen and encounter the Turks, or walk towards the screen to reach another subway section. Select the second choice and follow the subway tunnel until it ends at a dead end with the W-Item materia. Equip the materia on the character with the item to be duplicated. When a battle begins, select the W-Item entry on the battle menu, select an unimportant item and use it on any character. On the second item choice, select the item to be duplicated by pressing Circle, then press X to cancel your selection and increase the number of that item in inventory. Repeatedly press Circle followed by X to accumulate 99 of the duplicated item. Note: This will only duplicate item selectable in battle and can not be used to duplicate the various sources, materia, weapons, or armor.
