The following is a list of achievements and trophies unlockable in the 2012 PC and 2016 PlayStation 4 re-releases of Final Fantasy VII.

On PC, the player's achievements are loaded in the "achievement.dat" file, found in a folder with the user's ID, within a "FINAL FANTASY VII" folder, within a "Square Enix" folder placed in My Documents by default. The file is a seventy-two bit file: 36 bits relate to the achievements, while the others appear to serve no purpose. The achievement order corresponds to the bit, with the first (End of Part I) corresponding to the eightieth bit, then each achievement thereafter is the previous bit, down until the last (Dice) which corresponds to the forty-fifth bit. If the player were to edit this file in a hex-editor and change it to read "0000000fffffffff00" the player can receive all achievements. However, this will only save to the system if the edits are made while in the game.

  • Upon beating the game the player will have obtained at least seven achievements automatically: Won 1st Battle, Battle Square, End of Part I, Diamond Weapon, End of Part II, Omnislash, End of Game (it would also be difficult to beat the game without gaining the seven achievements for the first limit breaks of the required characters).
  • The achievement notification for End of Part I will appear when the game internally sets the main story variable to after Aeris's death, causing it to obscure part of the video of Cloud putting her body to rest.
  • The achievements for characters' final limit breaks are obtained by learning it by using the limit manual item in the menu, not by actually using the limit break in battle.
