Jenova∙LIFE, referred to as Jenova Life in the BradyGames guide, is a boss in Final Fantasy VII and the last boss of Part 1. The "J-E-N-O-V-A" music does not play in the battle, rather "Aeris's theme" continues playing from the previous scene. This is one of the few battles in the game to not have a victory pose.

If the player did not talk to the Innkeeper about the situation of the town during the Kalm flashback, defeating Jenova∙LIFE will trigger the Aeris's ghost event to occur the next time the player visits the Sector 5 Church.

Forgotten Capital
Water Altar 671 (event)


Jenova∙LIFE attacks with Blue Light, Blue Flame, and uses Reflect for defense, and always uses as counter-attack it after being hit with Magic Hammer or any magical attack. Her Blue Light attack may be used twice in one turn.

Players should have the Enemy Skill Materia in this battle to learn Jenova∙LIFE's Aqualung ability.


Casting Magic Hammer on Jenova will quickly prevent her from using her most damaging attacks, but each time Magic Hammer is used on her, she will cast Reflect. Reflect can easily be disabled with De-Barrier. As she only has 300 MP, three cycles of De-Barrier and Magic Hammer will render her unable to fight as all of her attacks consume MP. Equipping a Water Ring on a character will make the battle impossible to lose, since all of Jenova LIFE's attacks are Water-based. Non-reflectable spells and summons are useful in this battle, such as Comet, Beta, Bahamut, Kjata, Odin, and Titan. For other offense, Quake2 or Quake3 are good, as well as each character's best Limit Breaks.

The player can inflict Paralysis with Cloud's Cross-slash or Dazers won from Boundfat outside the Forgotten Capital.

The dot between the words is an interpunct used in Japanese to indicate that a full proper noun is two separate words. It appears in Final Fantasy VII in the boss names of Jenova's parts and Sephiroth's boss forms.

The names of Jenova∙BIRTH, Jenova∙LIFE, and Jenova∙DEATH are alluded to Saṃsāra, the repeating cycle of birth, life, and death in Buddhism.
