• Limit Breaks

    There are four Limit Break levels, and each level has two attacks to use. So, from level one, you start with one Limit attack. We'll use Cloud as an Example. Cloud starts with Braver, so to get his next limit, Cross Slash, he has to use Braver a certain amount of times. So, for example, You might use Braver eight times, and you'll unlock Cross Slash. Once the Second attack has been unlocked, you need that character to kill a certain amount of enemies for them to advance to the next Limit level. I believe that the game starts counting for the second limit straightaway, you don't have to wait to get the second attack first.

    Now, Here is a list of this for all of the characters. The numbers may vary each game, but it won't be by too much, maybe five either way for enemies killed, give or take one for number of limits used.

    There are some strategies that can be used to get to the next limits as fast as possible. First of all, always use hypers on your party when you want to learn the second limit break of a level, it makes the limit gauge fill up much faster. Also, for the fastest results go to some difficult opponents, like at Junon before you go on the boat. Pull the alarm in the room with the soldiers to fight some tough battles that will fill up your gauge in no time. Just remember to constantly heal and go back to save every once in a while. A fast method of learning new levels of limit breaks is going to the forests outside of Junon. There you will encounter either two bird-like monsters, or a lot of little monsters. Use All+Lightning materia to make short work of the little monsters, this will give that character a lot of finishing blows quickly. As for the flying monsters, have the other two party members weaken it, and then use the All+Lightning to kill those. This should get 80 kills within 10 or 15 minutes.

    Pulse of Life: Use Planet Protector 5 times.
    Limit Level 4:
    Great Gospel: This is perhaps the trickiest level 4 limit break to find. Once you get the Buggy (after the Gold Saucer), ride it to Costa Del Sol. Take a boat back the first continent, and leave Junon. For some strange reason, the buggy is back with you again. Ride it over the river to find a cave tucked away in the side of the mountain range. Go inside and speak to the man there. You want him to say how many battles you have won so far. If he says something else, exit and reenter against until he says it. If the numbers are the same (eg: 55 or 111), he will give you Mythril. If they are not, go outside the cave and fight until they are. Then go back and he will give you the Mythril. Then ride the buggy back to Junon, and go down past the Gold Saucer. You will find a small house along the east coast. Go inside and give the Myrthil to the man. He will say that you can pick either of the two treasure chests. Pick the SMALL one, and you will get the Great Gospel. Phew!

    All of the playable characters in Final Fantasy 7 have limit breaks, which are powerful attacks used when a character is hurt enough times. Unlike Final Fantasy 8, it does not matter if the characters HP is very low, just how much they've gotten hurt. Every time a character gets attacked, their limit gauge fills up. A small attack will only fill it up slightly, or not even at all, while a very strong attack could fill it up completely. Except for Cait Sith and Vincent, everybody has 4 levels of limit breaks. There are two limit breaks in the first three levels, and one ultimate limit break in the fourth level. As the game progresses, the first and second level limit breaks become obsolete, so it is important to try to get everyone to level 3 and 4.

      I really hated Tifa's limit breaks, those slots were awful! Not to mention they were just straight damage, against a random opponent. It was really only useful against single bosses..
