The video is in Japanese. I, for one, don't speak or read Jap, and thus have no idea what they are saying or have on the menus and such. It was just an anon tough, so don't be harsh on them if you decide to revert.

Bye bye. Videos should be used sparsely. They are not needed for boss strategies. While we're on the subject, all videos should be in English, since this is an English wiki (I'll make an exception for games that have not come out in English).
A frozen Emerald Weapon (or what appears to be) appears in the depths of judgement. link. Of course, he shouldn't actually be there in FFVII storyline, and it's just there and does nothing. Should this go in the article? (never played Crisis Core, just stumbled upon this topic) ILHI16:06, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
The still-frozen Emerald Weapon makes a cameo appearance in Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, buried under Banora Village on the Mideel island. While Zack is searching underground, the player can see what is clearly a Weapon within the caverns. Upon closer inspection, its features match Emerald's. However, it is beyond the reach of the player map.
Many players believe that this is a mistake, and that it should be in the Northern Crater. However, it is known that the Weapons are meant to protect the planet, and Genesis, who is seen as a risk to the planet, is in that cavern.
This is also backed up in the battle against Minerva where Emerald Weapon is also clearly visible. It could be there for the purpose of protecting the planet in case something bad happens, as Minerva is the goddess of Gaia.
So it is. That's good. ILHI17:10, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
I suppose I could make a forum topic on this, but if the answer is yes it will affect this page too. According to this (see Lvl. 8), there is an Emerald Weapon in FFX-2. It isn't mentioned on the Weapon page of this site. And according to this he's only in the international version. ILHI12:25, 31 May 2008 (UTC)
Well, if it was International only, then it may have been.
Looking through the wonders of google, I found this. "along with a new enemy in the vein of the Ultima/Omega Weapon variety called Emerald Weapon. " If it is real, then it's International only, because I'm not missing a Weapon in my bestiary.
I didn't think of International when thinking of X-2 pages. There's not much information about it, but there are new monsters.
So... have we found any Emerald Weapons in FFX-2 International yet, or should we remove the disambig back?
I tried to attack the situation head-on. I asked the people at the site where "Emerald Weapon" came from, and whether it's "Strongest Shinra". As of yet no one has replied, which is a little strange but I'm sure someone will; there was of course another topic there which has been removed automatically by the forum, saying "Yes, there is in the international version." So as a community, they believe he exists, under the name "Emerald Weapon".
Mr. Gamer's link also says Emerald Weapon, though TTA lacks a Super Shinra card, pointing more in the direction of Emerald Weapon somehow being an alternate name, whether it be the early title, or its name in certain versions. ILHI21:48, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
Seeing that X-2 International is in Japanese, I went to search on relevant Japanese sites. The only instances of ウェポン Wepon I can find is オメガウェポン OmegaWepon and アルテマウェポン ArutemaWepon. The so-called "Emerald Weapon" creature is known as 最強シンラ君 Saikyou Shinra-kun - Strongest Shinra.
I think they got this confused with the Final Fantasy VII International, also released only in Japan, which has the Emerald Weapon - An "International" version would include whatever was in the NA version. Initially, the Emerald Weapon was not in the original Japanese version of VII, it's a bonus boss in the NA version.
