If you enter a battle, even a boss battle, with your character's
backs facing the enemies, simply press L1 and R1 as if to escape, but
then let them go and you will be facing the enemy. This is
particularly useful for the boss battle with Motor Ball, after
escaping the Shinra Headquarters. You just need to do it quickly to
avoid the higher damage from the back attack.
Get any character's HP to 7777 and they will go berserk, and attack
enemies for 7777 damage. But after the battle, they will go down to
1 HP. A good way of getting 7777 HP is to first have you hp over
7777. Then you are going to fight a battle against a weak enemy. Get
your HP below 154, then use the cats bell to walk your HP up to be
EXACTLY 154, then use a Demi2 attack on the person with 154 HP, your
HP should be 77, just use 15 hi-potions, and two potions.
After you get the W-item materia, equip it on someone. When you are
in the middle of a battle, select W-item and pick any item except
weapons etc. that you wish to duplicate, then use it on someone. Then
with your second item, pick the same item as before and then press
the O button. Then press the X button to cancel the second item and
your first item will increase by one. Every time you press the O
button and the cancel with the X button, the first item increases by
one. This can get you 99 of any item, and is useful for getting
Elixers for the Magic Pots in the Northern Cave.
Press Select to display a window above the time bars, then sense the
enemy. From this point on whenever you attack that enemy while
selecting, look in that window to see its current HP and name. This
only works during the current battle.

Cast Reflect on all allies, then cast an attack spell on all your
characters, like a spell that hits all enemies. The spell will then
be reflected onto the opponent(s) three times.
Cast Regen-All on your party, then quickly open the PlayStation lid
when all opponents have been defeated. The game will be unable to
load the victory screen, and may glitch while the HP for each party
member fills. After everyone is at full health, close the lid to
resume the game.
