The Tonberry of Final Fantasy VII can is fought in the seventh round Gold Saucer Battle Square when the saucer reopens in Part 2. It is programmed to be encountered in the Reunion area of Northern Cave, but since the player cannot control a character in this area and the encounters there are automatically disabled, the player cannot fight it there.

Its counterpart, the Master Tonberry, is found within the final dungeon areas of the Northern Cave. Because Tonberry is exclusive to the Battle Square, it will never drop the Phoenix Down it has or yield EXP, AP or gil.

BattleEdit

Each time a Tonberry gets a turn, it walks two steps towards the party. Once a party member is within the its Knife's reach, it inflict instant death. Death Force can render party members immune to this attack. Between Tonberry's turns, the party may attack it twice undeterred. Any additional attacks (between Tonberry's turns) are retaliated with an unstoppable counterattack called Time Damage, which deals damage depending on the time the player has played the game: (hours played * 100) + minutes played, capped at 9,999 damage. Since Tonberry can only naturally be fought with one character, seeing this counterattack requires the Slow status induced on Tonberry, the Haste status induced on the player, and a high Dexterity stat.
