VII

ProudClod-ffvii-field

The Proud Clod is a mechanical weapon designed by Scarlet and the Shinra Weapons Department in Final Fantasy VII. It is said to be equipped with "anti-Weapon artillery," so it was presumably built to fight the Weapons. Scarlet and Heidegger pilot the robot from the armored cockpit in its chest. It attempts to block the party's progress when they return to Midgar, but is destroyed, presumably along with Scarlet and Heidegger. The theme of Shinra plays throughout the fight.

BattleEdit

The Proud Clod's attacks, despite their names, are largely only fairly strong physicals. It can cast Reflect on the party by using Materia Jammer, but only when Jamar Armor is present. His Big Hand Clash, Wrist Laser, Knee Fire, Knee Blend, and W Machine Gun attacks can be used twice in one turn. When weak, the Proud Clod will kneel and count down to Beam Cannon, doing considerable damage to the entire party.

As Proud Clod is weak, but defensive, the battle can become drawn out. Late in the battle, Proud Clod will hardly attack, but instead will charge Beam Cannon. This may seem dangerous, but the extra turns the player gets are more than enough to compensate.

StrategyEdit

The player should use physical attacks, such as 2x Cut, and spells, such as Magic Breath, so they get EXP and AP from Jamar Armor. When healing is needed, White Wind is often more than enough.

Gold SaucerEdit

The Proud Clod can also be fought in the Gold Saucer as the Battle Square Special Battle available after obtaining Omnislash, the W-Summon and Cloud's Ultima Weapon. For defeating it, the party will obtain the Final Attack Materia.

GlitchesEdit

The Quadra Magic Ultima glitch involves casting Ultima against Proud Clod with Quadra Magic, while the Ultima Materia is also linked to HP or MP Absorb. Casting Ultima with this setup may freeze the game.

Casting Pandora's Box on Proud Clod with a party member and the enemy both having Reflect can result in an infinite loop reflecting back and forth between the party and the enemy.

The Raid on Midgar glitch allows one to skip the entire return to Midgar segment, including the battle against Proud Clod.
