With this single rogue
transmission, fear is instilled
into the hearts of millions of
souls across the planet.
The shadow of the Shinra
begun its ruthless onslaught.
To prevent this unknown
terror from wreaking havoc
across the land,
Reeve Tuesti and his World
Regenesis Organization enlist
the aid of one of the

As Vincent battles the

hidden facet of his true
And after putting together all
the lost pieces, Vincent
realizes that the answers to
the questions about his past
lie with his one true love--
Doctor Lucrecia Crescent.
And so Vincent sets off for
Shinra Manor in search of a
truth he may be unable to
All the while,
never fully realizing that
the beginning of the end
is already upon them all.
Aboard a WRO chopper, Vincent is having a
telephone conversation with Reeve as the
helicopter flies past Midgar, headed for
Reeve: Try to bring back anything
that we could use to
better understand this
Dr. Crescent may have left
in Shinra Manor.
Vincent: She was...researching
something back then.
Vincent ends the conversation and thinks back on
his time in Shinra Manor, seeing Lucrecia watching
the glowing Protomateria.
Vincent: What were you involved
What was tormenting you?
Vincent, to the pilot:
Vincent: Where are we?
WRO Pilot: We are currently over the
vicinity of Junon, sir.
As he speaks, the helicopter is suddenly attacked by
Gargoyles. They swiftly break through the helicopter's
windshield and kill the pilot. Vincent pulls out
Cerberus and tries to ward off the monsters.
- Steppe Chopper -
The door has been torn off by the Gargoyles and
Vincent fires at them through the hole left behind.
After he has taken down six of them, the remaining
Gargoyles close in on the helicopter.
As the Gargoyles seemingly cease to attack,
Vincent backs away from what remains of the door.
However, a Gargoyle suddenly tears through the wall
and grabs him from behind. Vincent is dragged out of
the helicopter along with it. While falling through the
air, Vincent transforms into Galian Beast and defeats
the remaining enemies.
The helicopter crashes into the ground, exploding,
while Vincent touches down safely and reverts back
into his ordinary form. Stylishly throwing back his
mantle, he walks off.
What he does not know is that a figure shrouded
in shadows is watching him from afar...
Nero: Vincent Valentine...come,
show it to me...the darkness
swelling inside of you...
- Travelling to Junon -
On his way across the plains, Vincent receives a call from Reeve.
Reeve: Vincent? ...Vincent, it's me,
I've managed to establish a
connection to your phone.
It appears this area is safe
for the time being, you should
find some barrels nearby.
Take this chance to brush up on
you aiming. Press the OK key to
ready the Cerberus; do not worry
about running out of ammunition.
Vincent gives it a try.
Reeve: Well done, while firing at
targets you dodge attacks by
double tapping left or right.
Good to see the crash hasn't
affected your aim, Time to head
Further down the road.
Reeve: There is a suitcase just ahead,
it must have fallen from the
chopper. Attempt to retrieve it,
but keep an eye out for Deepground.
Enemies will appear on the threat
ring as yellow marks.
Vincent retrieves the suitcase.
Reeve: Vincent, you've obtained a
potion, potions recover lost HP.
Search for other useful items
in this area.
Fighting Guard Hounds, Vincent searches the area.
He comes across ammunition for both the Griffon and the Hydra.
Reeve: The griffon is most effective
at close range. Try to find
more ammunition in this area.
The Hydra is a powerful firearm
but has limited ammunition.
It is of the utmost importance
that you reach Junon as soon as
Vincent traverses a cavern.
Upon exiting the cavern...
Reeve: You've made it to the
outskirts of Junon, you
should reach the city soon.
Stay alert and watch for
any signs of danger.
Vincent is attacked by two Guard Hounds.
Reeve: There is a another suitcase
just ahead, you should pick
Within it is a special accessory
known as the "Choco Feather",
which increases your speed.
Accessories will boost your

As more and more Guard Hounds attack Vincent,
Reeve informs him about the following:
Reeve: Although it is not far
to Junon, the journey
will not be an easy one.
There is a beast point up
ahead, step onto it to
change into Galian Beast.
Vincent finds the point and transforms into Galian Beast,
and proceeds to defeat the Guard Hounds. Afterwards,
back in his ordinary form, he discovers a card key and
a ladder. He climbs the ladder and encounters a
Crimson Hound guarding a barricaded tunnel.
Vincent defeats it and walks towards the entrance.
Reeve: That door must lead to
Junon, opening it will
require a card key.
Vincent uses the card key and enters.
Once outside, Vincent contacts Reeve again.
Vincent: Reeve, I need new
transport to Shinra
Reeve: I can arrange for another
chopper in Costa del Sol.
Vincent: Then I have to make it
across the ocean first.
Reeve: There should be ships
departing from Junon.
Vincent: Junon... I'll have to hurry.
Vincent continues walking towards Junon.
- Chapter II -
- Entering Junon -
Arriving in Junon, Vincent says to himself:
Vincent: So this is where it all
He is greeted by people running around in fear.
As they pass by Vincent, they shout:
Whatís going on?
Reeve: This was the site of a mass
disappearance. In a single
night, 1200 people
disappeared without a trace.
Junon has become a ghost
town; those left behind
living in sorrow.
Vincent makes his way through the town, fighting
Deepground Soldiers in search of another card key
to unlock the barrier blocking the way to upper
Junon with. After obtaining the card key and
unlocking the gate, Reeve gives him further
Reeve: The next door is powered
by three generators. You
will need to locate them
and cut the power supply
to the door.
While searching for the generators, Vincent finds a
card key and ammunition for Cerberus.
After he has managed to destroy the first generator,
more Deepground soldiers appear.
The second generator is protected by a barrier.
Using the card key he just found to reach it,
he destroys the second generator as well.
Reeve: The last generator is
protected by a strong case.
You will have to transform
into Galian Beast to
Vincent does as he says and the gate opens.
However, to pass through he has to defeat
a stream of Deepground soldiers.
- Chapter III -
- Elevator Action -
Vincent proceeds through the gate and enters the
elevator shaft. He steps onto the platform and
activates the elevator. However, it stops at the
first landing and he is attacked by Deepground
soldiers. He defeats them, searches the area,
and then resumes his ascension after reactivating
It stops again at the second landing and more
Deepground soldiers appear. Using a turret,
Vincent defeats the enemy.
Upon reaching the third landing, an explosion
occurs and cuts off the path. Vincent has to
change into Galian Beast to fight off more
Deepground soldiers and then presses on.
- The Streets of Junon -
Out on the streets of Junon, a Dragonfly flies past.
Vincent: What? Deepground.
A second Dragonfly arrives and Deepground soldiers
descend from both of them. They begin attacking
and rounding up the townspeople. Two of civilians
are immediately surrounded.
Civilian 1: No, no...
The rear hatch of one of the Dragonflies opens and
Rosso steps out.
Civilian 2: Who...who are you?
Rosso: Rosso...but you
darling, may call
Rosso, the Crimson.
Rosso readies her weapon and cuts down
the civilians, too fast for the eye to follow.
Rosso: The tainted will be
hunted down and
exterminated. The time
has come to cleanse
The Dragonfly she arrived in lifts off as she
watches the two groups of Deepground soldiers
- Chapter IV -
- Lower Junon -
Vincent makes his way through the lower level
of Junon. A small boy runs up to him.
Boy: Are you the monster?
That took everyone away?
Vincent: The disappearances?
Boy: I saw everything!
That night, the stars,
they all went out; and
then I saw it...the shadow.
The boy runs off.
Vincent proceeds through Junon, running past abandoned
market stalls. Eventually, he comes across a woman
in distress, cornered by a Deepground soldier.
Woman: P-Please donít shoot!
Deepground soldier: Prepare to die.
Vincent shoots the enemy.
Woman: Thank you so much!
She runs off.
Vincent continues on his way, fighting both
snipers aiming at him from the buildings and
ordinary soldiers. He is then attacked by a
Dragonfly, but with the help of a turret he
eventually manages to drive off.
Afterwards, he passes through a gate to the
next section of the city.
Vincent proceeds through the city, fighting more
Deepground soldiers as he runs through the streets.
He eventually discovers a ladder, which leads him
to a lower area of Junon. However, he is then once
again forced to fight the Dragonfly using a turret.
This time, the Dragonfly attacks him not only using
its standard machine guns but with missiles as well.
The Dragonfly is once again driven away and Vincent
finds yet another ladder to an even lower part of
Junon. He is attacked by more Deepground soldiers,
and, after defeating them, he finds a passage to
Vincent makes his way through another part of Junon,
crawling with Deepground soldiers. After a while,
he comes across another woman threatened by a
Woman: Please! I have a family!
Deepground soldier: They will soon join you.
As the Deepground soldier aims at the civilian, he is shot by Vincent.
Woman: Thank you!
The woman hurries off.
Vincent continues on. As he closes in on an open
warehouse door, barriers suddenly appear,
surrounding him, and he is forced to battle numerous
Deepground soldiers. After changing into Galian Beast
and defeating them all, the barriers disappear and
Vincent is finally able to proceed through the
- Chapter V -
- Junon Warehouse -
Boy: Aah!! Help me!
Inside of the warehouse basement, Vincent witnesses
the young boy from before screaming for help as a
Crimson Hound drags him with it through a gateway
that is blocked off by a barrier after they pass
through. While searching for a card key, Vincent
encounters Deepground soldiers and eventually finds
both the card key and more ammunition. Still
fighting the Deepground soldiers, Vincent heads
back to the gateway and unlocks the barrier.
He then hurries after the Crimson Hound.
On the first floor of the warehouse, the Crimson
Hound rushes by, still dragging the screaming boy
along with it.
Boy: Help me!
The Crimson Hound disappears through another
barricaded gate. While Vincent searches for
the card key, he finds a Hi-Potion and is then
suddenly ambushed by more Deepground soldiers.
He defeats them, finds the card key, deactivates
the barrier and then swiftly hurries after the
Crimson Hound to the second floor.
The Crimson Hound's tail can be seen disappearing
through yet another barricaded gate. Vincent
searches a corridor for a card key. He manages to
find one but is then attacked by Deepground soldiers.
With the help of some explosive barrels, Vincent
defeats them and heads back to the barricaded gate,
deactivates it, and enters.
Vincent searches the third floor and finds a room that
is filled with boxes, but otherwise empty aside from
a ladder, which Vincent climbs. Upon doing so, he
spots the Crimson Hound, running through a doorway.
When he tries to follow it, a Dragonfly appears and
Vincent finally defeats it with the help of a turret.
The Dragonfly explodes and crashes into the sea.
Vincent hurries through the door.
Boy: Help, save me!
The Crimson Hound attacks Vincent and is defeated.
The boy runs up to Vincent.
Boy: Thanks Mister, at first
I thought you were the
monster who took everyone
The boy hurries off.
- Enter Rosso -
Rosso descends a stairway leading down from the roof.
Rosso: So, we meet again darling...
and just as I was getting
tired of toying with...
these insects. I needed a
little more excitement in
my day. Iíll make you pay
for what you did to me
With a smile, Rosso heads back up the stairs and Vincent follows.
Vincent reaches the top of the staircase and sees Rosso
standing on a container.
Rosso: Do you think you can
defeat my guards?
Taking cover behind various objects and obstacles,
Vincent manages to defeat all of Rosso's guards.
Rosso quickly moves up to Vincent and punches him,
causing him to fall over the edge of the warehouse.
She walks towards Vincent, who has managed to grab
on to the edge with one hand. As she leans over him,
Vincent makes a somersault and lands on a rooftop
He then fires at several barrels behind her,
causing them to explode. Escaping Rosso, as well
as the flames, he jumps down and runs through a
The smoke clears and Rosso can be seen, laughing.
Rosso: You are just to much
fun, my darling Vincent.
Vincent calls Reeve.
Vincent: I took care of
Reeve: Thank goodness, will you
reach the ship in time?
Vincent: Yeah, I'm heading for
the docks now.
He hurries through Junon in the direction of the docks,
but is forced to dodge as Rosso throws her blade at him.
Looking up, he sees Rosso standing on a barrel, smiling.
Rosso: Where are you going?
We've only just started
playing. I must simply
be the one...to kill you.
- Chapter VI -
- The Docks of Junon -
Vincent fires at Rosso, who leaps out of sight.
Announcement: The ship will leave
in 80 seconds.
Vincent: I have to make it there...
He runs through an area strewn with boxes and containers
while fighting off Deepground soldiers and Shrikes who
try to impede his progress by setting up barriers. He finally
manages to defeat the last of the Shrikes and the last
barrier disappears. Vincent continues on through a corridor.
Exiting the corridor, Vincent sees that the ship has
already cast off.
Vincent: I still have about 270
seconds until I will
have no chance of
catching the ship.
Vincent rushes off along the dock, fighting more
Deepground soldiers. He eventually encounters
Rosso: Maybe you can catch
the next ship, darling.
He fights her and manages to force her to retreat with
a laugh. Vincent continues on, defeats more
Deepground soldiers as well as Gargoyles and soon finds
Rosso blocking his path once more.
Rosso: It's been fun darling,
but now you die.
He drives her back.
Rosso: You're running out
of time running,
Vincent hurries on and finally manages to reach
the end of the dock.
- The Ship -
Vincent dashes and leaps into the air after the ship
as it moves further and further away from the dock.
Safely onboard, he turns to see Rosso chasing after him.
She suddenly stops and takes out her phone, hesitating
Rosso: Orders are Orders.
Such a Pity.
She clutches the phone tightly.
Nero watches the scene unfold from high above the dock.
Nero: More... I must have
I want to feel your
Darkness deep inside
He vanishes into his own shadows.
Passengers walk about on the ship's deck and Vincent descends
below using a set of stairs. Looking around the interior,
he passes by a room in a hallway from which music can be heard.
Stepping inside, he recognizes the song.
Vincent: This music...
- A Memory Unforgotten - Part I -
Everything fades to white and he recalls a scene from long ago,
during his time as a Turk in Shinra Manor.
Lucrecia: Dance with me.
She turns on the radio.
Vincent is taken off-guard by her sudden question
and backs away, replying:
Vincent: W-What, no...
no I can't dance.
Even so, Lucrecia takes his hand and guides him
while beginning to dance.
Lucrecia: So you don't like me.
Vincent: No, no that's not
He is interrupted by the beautiful scientist.
Lucrecia: Then dance with me.
The dance goes on and Lucrecia says:
Lucrecia: See, it isn't that
bad, is it?
The memory fades and Vincent is abruptly brought back to the
present when the ship is attacked and Sahagins enter the room.
The passengers scream in fear.
- Chapter VII -
- Ship under Attack -
Vincent defeats the two Sahagins that entered the room and
then runs out to see what he can do about the situation.
Sailor: The ship is being
invaded and is
The life rafts have
jammed, and the security
barriers are active;
please help the
Vincent encounters both Sahagins and Gargoyles as he
searches the area in order to deactivate the barriers and
unlock the life rafts filled with passengers. He manages
to deactivate a barrier and free two life rafts and is
then forced to use a turret to defeat numerous Gargoyles.
Eventually, he gets the chance to deactivate the last
barrier and the last raft is set free. However,
as it descends a woman jumps back onboard.
Woman: My research!
She runs off in the opposite direction of the raft
and Vincent dashes after.
Vincent: Wait, get back on the
Inside the ship, Vincent finally manages to catch
up to the woman.
Vincent: You can't go back.
Woman: But my luggage?
Vincent: Leave it.
Woman: No... I can't, all of
my research will go
Another memory surfaces...
- A Memory Unforgotten - Part II -
Vincent and Lucrecia are still dancing in Shinra Manor.
He replies to her question:
Vincent: Yeah, this isnít...
He then notices the Protomateria, which is lying on
a desk next to them.
Vincent: Huh... isn't that?
Lucrecia: That's your...oh
Vincent: Is it important?
Lucrecia: Yes, very important.
Back in the present, Vincent asks the woman:
Vincent: Is it important?
Woman: Yes, very important.
Vincent: Alright, but I'm
- Looking for the Research -
Vincent: Stay close.
Relieved, the woman follows him into the lower
part of the ship. They encounter Sahagins
and Vincent protects the woman.
As they reach the lowest level, the woman
finds her luggage.
Woman: I found it.
Vincent: Come on, we have
to get out of here.
They run through the corridors of the sinking ship,
which has begun taking on water, encountering more
Sahagins along the way. Vincent is forced to fight
them off by transforming into Galian Beast.
Back on the deck.
Woman: Thank you so much.
My research is safe.
It means everything to
As she turns to leave, she thanks Vincent once more.
Woman: Thank you.
The woman leaves and Vincent is once again caught up in his
- A Memory Unforgotten - Part III -
While dancing, Lucrecia says to Vincent:
Lucrecia: SometimesÖ I get so
involved with my research
that I lose myself.
When ever that happens
though, ...you always
come to my rescue...
thank you Vincent.
Lucrecia: Nothing... I just
wanted to thank you.
The memory fades away as Vincent leans across the railing,
watching the raft carrying the woman float away to safety.
Vincent thinks back on what happened so many years ago.
Vincent: Her research... wasn't
it the Jenova project?
She... was in... pain.
Is it important?
He recalls the woman he just met, saying:
Woman: Yes, very important.
Vincent: "Yes, very important."
It was the same thing
Lucrecia had said.
- Enter Nero -
Caught up in his own thoughts, Vincent does not notice
that Nero, once again, is watching him from high above.
Nero: I want more...
I want to know
Perhaps this will
Nero releases a sphere of darkness and sends it off
Nero: Darkness lies stagnate
in the depths of your
soul. I shall assist
you in releasing that
terrible dark energy.
Vincent realizes the danger and turns around, firing at
the darkness, though this proves futile.
A Black Widow steps out of the darkness, which then
fades away. The Black Widow attacks with its beam
cannon and Vincent, who has no choice but to dodge
out of the way, rapidly fires at the enemy while
somersaulting high into the air.
- Battle against the Black Widow -
Vincent continues firing at the Black Widow, making it jump to
another area of the deck. Vincent follows and comes across a
set of switches. After activating them, several platforms
with barrels rise. Vincent detonates them as the Black Widow
nears them, eventually forcing it to retreat to the
observation deck. Vincent chases after it.
However, as Vincent takes aim at the Black Widow, it suddenly
leaps over Vincent's head and unleashes its Beam Cannon.
Vincent is gravely wounded and is knocked against a wall.
As he leans against the wall, the Protomateria embedded in
his chest can be clearly seen and he recalls another scene
from the past of Lucrecia holding the mysterious Materia.
Vincent: Were you in pain?
I have to make it
Vincent forces himself to fight on.
Vincent: To find out about
Back on the main deck, Vincent is finally able to bring
down the Black Widow, using both Cerberus and transforming
into Galian Beast. The Black Widow falls over the edge of
the ship and Vincent watches it as it sinks.
However, he is running out of time as the ship capsizes,
taking Vincent down with it along with crates and
other debris that floats around him. Resigned, he thinks:
Vincent: Not much longer now.
I'm... sorry, I...
can't take it anymore.
A bubble suddenly floats up near his face and an image
of Lucrecia kneeling in dispair on the laboratory floor appears.
- Cait Sith in Your Face -
Vincent, surrounded by water and the wreckage of
the ship, is slowly starting to rise out of the sea.
A submarine is soon fully visible and, as the hatch
opens, Vincent spots a familiar face.
Cait Sith waves at him.
Cait Sith No.3: Vincent, ya nae

Vincent: Cait Sith... hmf

As Vincent and Cait Sith walk to the front of the
railing of the submarine, Cait says:
Cait Sith No.3: I didn't feel right
So I followed ye...er
and came to help.
Vincent: Yeah, thanks.
Cait Sith No.3: Donna mention it,
anyway I still feel
something's not right.
From far away, a dark shadow is still watching Vincent.
Nero becomes visible, saying to himself:
Nero: At last. I have

More memories surfaces; images of Lucrecia,
Hojo, himself in a test tube, the Protomateria,
Lucrecia sealed in her crystal in the cavern,
and finally the entrance to Shinra Manor.
Vincent: I'm going back,
To the place you
were, to Shinra Manor.
Vincent and Cait Sith descend into the
submarine, and, escorted by two helicopters,
it continues its journey towards Costa del Sol.
