Ancient Forest Revival
After you gain acess to the Ancient Forest, there is a way to revive your characters without using a Phoenix Down. If you have a dead character, walk into one of the "fly traps" and make it swallow you. When it spits you back out, your dead character will be revived (with one HP left :P )

Clone Save Crystals
This glitch will only be executable on Disc 3, when you actually obtain the Save Crystal in the Northern Crater, which has the purpose of creating a Save Point anywhere desired. Normally, only one per playthrough can be earned, but you can earn a second through a glitch! When the paths split up in the Northern Crater, use the southwestbound path. On the third screen, there will be a chest containing an X-Potion. Move close to the edge of the ledge of the first chest - which contains the X-Potion - and then jump down and open the chest the split second you begin to jump down. Do not close the message box confirming you earned the X-Potion! If done correctly, you should still be able to move around, despite the text box; move near to the southern exit such that Cloud's face is off-screen but you have not left the area. Enter the menu and use the Save Crystal. When asked in the field if you wish to make a Save Point, answer "Yes" and immediately run west and to the next area. In this area, there will be another request for the Save Point. Answer "No" and go back an area, where you'll find a Save Point, but you'll still have the Save Crystal in the inventory.
Damage Overflow Glitch
There are two equally-valid ways in which this glitch may occur, each with the same results: instant-killing of even the toughest of enemies. For this, you must either have Vincent's Death Penalty or Barret's Missing Score weapons. To use this glitch, you must abuse these weapons' mechanics for damage calculation: in this case, you must kill 65,535 enemies with the Death Penalty (though 40,000+ will suffice) or equip 8,000,000 AP of Materia onto the Missing Score (though 4,000,000 suffices, such as 8 Mastered Knights of the Round Materia). However, do not equip the HP Absorb Materia onto either of these characters, as the damage overflow will in turn cause a healing overflow and death.
Once either of the conditions above is met, simply enter a battle. Because of the extreme damage caused under these conditions, the game will interpret the high damage as high healing, which it in turn interprets as a glitch and kills off the enemy outright. This will also happen with any enemy or boss, making it very viable, particularly with the Weapon bosses. These are not the only conditions by which the glitch can be abused, either, but are the easiest to achieve and work with 100% regularity.
Getting the Quadra Magic without a Chocobo
There is a way to get the materia "Quadra Magic" without having to breed a River Chocobo. You'll need the Highwind. Fly it to the most southwestern tip of land on the map and you'll notice a cave. Follow this back (Mideel way) until you get to a slightly upraised piece of land. Go as far as you can to the edge of the cliff. Face the Highwind south. Press the land button and quickly but lightly press R1. The Highwind should land half on the cliff and half off. You can now walk up to the cave and get the Quadra Magic.

Infinite Regen Glitch (PS1 only)
Cast Regen on your characters, then open the disk tray, Regen will continue working but the enemy won't ever attack until you close the disk tray. Close the disk tray when your characters have fully recovered.
Play scratched disks trick
If your game freezes when trying to play cut scenes because your disk is scratched, simply restart and swap to another disk just before the cut scene. It will instead play the wrong cut scene, but you can continue playing as normal.
Resist/Absorb Ultima Weapon's Ultima Beam
In Final Fantasy VII, there is an unnamed element hidden in the game code that was partially scrapped pre-release, including its own name. Few attacks actually use this element, and only one does that deals damage: the devastating Ultima Beam attack from Ultima Weapon. It is very possible to abuse this partial-deletion by placing the Elemental Materia linked to a non-elemental Materia (such as Restore) on your armor. If you do so, depending on the level of the Elemental Material, you will halve the damage from Ultima Beam, nullify it, or even absorb, taking a lot of difficulty out of this battle.
When you enter a random battle, and you find yourself attacked from behind, hold down R1+L1 to run from the battle, then let go and you are facing the enemies.

Save Point Glitch
This glitch can be used to allow you to utilize the functions of a Save Point anywhere in the field. When loading your game from a saved file that was saved at a Save Point (one not created by the Save Crystal), as the game loads, try to move in any direction during the black screen between the file selection screen and the game itself. If you manage to move off of the Save Point before the black screen turns to reveal the game itself, you will always be treated as being at a Save Point. (To check this, when the game is loaded, you can enter the menu to be able to save and use the PHS, even though off the Save Point.) Thus, you can save and switch characters around at any time. This effect will last until you touch another Save Point or reset the console.
Skip Return to Midgar glitch
This glitch allows you to skip Returning to Midgar, however you will permanently miss Barret's and Caith Sith's ultimate weapon's and a Tough Ring, Ziedrich and Minerva Band by doing so. After defeating Diamond Weapon when he approaches Midgar, head towards Northern Crater in the Highwind to continue the story. When you reach the scene between Scarlet, Reeve and Heidegger in the meeting room, after Reeve says "I don't give a damn about the details!!", hold Right + X (run). If successful, in the next scene your characters will appear next to Hojo to stop him, instead of seeing him talking to himself.
Test 0 Glitch - JP Versions Only
The Test 0 enemy is what is likely a beta enemy used for testing in the Japanese versions of Final Fantasy VII; however, it was improperly deleted pre-release and still can be fought, but only in the Japanese release. You can find it as a random encounter in the well in the Corel Prison area in PlayStation release; in the original PC release, you can switch CDs just as the battle loads.
The Test 0 enemy comes with a number of benefits in fighting it: 100 AP, 1,000 EXP., and 10,000 Gil, making it notoriously easy to grind in a number of ways at this early point in the game. Defeating them will take a long time, however, as they have 30,000 HP, but the rewards make it much worth it compared to grinding against hundreds of weaker enemies for the same prizes. Note that, after the battle ends, you will return to the world map from the last point you left it, which also makes dangerous sequencing-breaking glitches possible (dangerous as they can ruin your file by making it unbeatable): it is therefore preferred you visit this area at a later time when you can freely travel rather than needing to be in the Corel Prison (in the PlayStation version) or needing to meet events in a certain area (PC version).
Tougher Enemies for Fast Leveling and AP
This glitch is exploitable after passing through Junion the first time and returning via the ship after completing the episode at Gold Saucer. Board the ship at Costa del Sol. Go to Junion and head away from the dock that the ship is at. Follow the main road to the tunnel that divides the city in two. In the tunnel there should be a number of Shinra soldiers drilling. On the left wall, there is a red box. Go up to it and press the action button. You should hear a siren going off. Walk arround and you will get into random encounters with enemies that aren't supposed to be encountered until Junion is attacked by Weapon on disc 2. You will probably need to use summons and magic contiuously during your first few battles to defeat the enemies. Don't forget to save money on potions, ethers, and pheonix downs by using the Junion Inn, which is also a good place to save.

You can get unlimited elixirs.
In the ice field there's a cave with an elixir in it. Grab it but DON'T push the X-button to let the text disappear that says that you've got an elixir. Normally you can't do anything when that message is on screen but this place is an exception; here you can walk out the cave and re-enter and get it again and again...
Note that if you let the text disappear the item will be removed from the screen and you can't get it again.

W-Item Duplication Glitch and Extensions
The W-Item Duplication Glitch requires, to start with, the W-Item Materia. The initial abuse of it is simple. Enter the items menu in battle and select an item, a target, then select a second item, and cancel. Then select the item and cancel again, and repeat ad infinitum: in doing so, the first item selected will be continually cloned.
There is a drawback to this in that it only works with items selected in battle. There is a workaround for this involving the Morph Materia and finding a foe that Morphs into the desired item you wish to clone. Put a nonconsequential item of quantity 1 - such as a lone Potion - in the top-left of the item list and then get into a battle with the foe who has the desired Morph. Order one character to kill the foe, and other another to Morph it. Have the third use W-Item, select the (in this example) Potion, a target, and then wait for the Morph to succeed. Once it does - thereby replacing the Potion from before - select a second item, then cancel, and repeat the process. This Morphed item will now be cloned repeatedly, even if it is not selectable in battle, making it very efficient at cloning, for example, stat-boosting Sources or equipment.
Another extension allows having two of the same item, but numbering 99 in each stock for a total of 198. You'll need one character with the W-Item and another with the Steal Materia, in addition to one of the item to be cloned. Arrange your items such that one slot is blank above the item to be cloned. In battle, you need to have one character Steal from the W-Item wielder. Quickly enter the items menu with the W-Item user and select the item in the inventory and a target, then wait for Steal to succeed. The stolen item will reappear in the inventory in the blank slot from before (the intentionally-blank one). You can now use the select-cancel process to clone the original item, and then you can do the same with the item that filled the blank slot, allowing you to obtain up to 198 of the same item from one utilization of the glitch.

Cactuar Ghost in Snowboarding Game
It's possible to unlock a hidden ghost in the snowboarding mini-game at Gold Saucer, but it's very difficult to do.
Get a satisfactory score in all of the courses and a yellow balloon will appear near the start of the mini-game that activates Time Attack. Get through the Beginner Course and then choose to retry. Now, start Time Attack and go to the Beginner Course. There'll be a silver balloon there that increases your speed when collected.
Here's the tough part: You must set a record of under 00'54''000 on the Beginner Course. If you succeed, start Time Attack mode and pause the game. Go to options and then ghost. You'll notice a new "? ? ?" option at the bottom. Select it and a running cactuar will replace the moogle. The ghost and your record can be saved on your file.

All Lucky 7s
If a character's HP is 7777 at any time during battle, it will go into a frenzy of super-accelerated, uncontrollable attacks, each hitting for 7777 damage to a random enemy. If a character has 7777 HP at the end of the battle, its HP will be reduced to 1 when you return to the field.

Cactuar island is an island so small it wont show up on the radar and this is the only place you can run into cactuars.
First off you need the airship. When you have the airship go fly above cosmo canyon. Then go strait south. It will be hard to miss.

Easy Stat source items
In the downed plane where you find Heavens cloud, every enemy morphs into some sort of source! A really easy way to do this is to get Yuffie doing good damage (5000 and up?) and have her morph them, as her weapon dosn't lower the damage of morph. Another great thing to do is to combine the mega all materia to get all the enemies at once. Even one hour of this will show great results!

Easy Strength Gain
You need the Morph materia and a character's ultimate weapon(optional but makes it easier when morphing) for this to work. Go to the Gongaga Reactor(the ruined one) and go to the reactor itself in the place and just walk around until you get into a battle, you should fight a Heavy Tank(the triceratops tank,if i'm right it's a 100% encounter rate) and use morph and it'll turn to a power source. You can keep morphing these guys into power sources and easily max a character's strength out.

Get Knights of the Round Summon
To get this cool summon spell you will need to breed a gold chocobo and go to a island that is not on the map but if in the top right corner. In the cave on the island you will find the ultimate summon spell that does 70,000+ damage when used once!
Get Out from North Crater
Want to get out from North Crater but don't know how? Well, there's a way.
If you remember, there's a hole near the cliff where you slided down the Crater. Go there. If you don't know where it is, its entrance is near where you first stepped your foot on North Crater.
Now, there's a rock that shaped like a ladder that leads to the upper side of the crater on the right side of the hole. Although there is no green triangle (sign of a ladder), that is actually a ladder that lets you go up.
After you climb up that ladder, you can board the Highwind again and get out from North Crater.

How to get into Midgar in disc 3
If you try to get back into Midgar you will see a man standing by the door who will say that he lost the key on a tour of bone village. Go to bone village and order a search by the tent at the top of the village. This may take a couple of trys but when you get it you enter sector 5 by Aeris's church and you can go to sector 6 as well.
Learning the enemy-skill chocobuckle
This is no doubt the most difficult enemy-skill to obtain. First you must have the enemy-skill "level 4 suicide" which can be learned from the "Mu" enemies, and you must have 3 mimett greens. Now equip the "chocobo lure" and "sense" materia and find a chocobo around the chocobo ranch area on the chocobo footprints, once you find one, use the sense command on the chocobo to see if its level 16 (since "level 4 suicide" only affects targets whose level is a multiple of 4.) If it is level 16, feed the chocobo your three mimett greens and cast level 4 suicide on the stuffed bird, the chocobo will counter with "chocobuckle", hitting the one who casted "level 4 suicide". Finally, chocobuckle is yours.
