VII

Turks:Reno is a recurring boss in Final Fantasy VII, fought a maximum of four times. Only the first is mandatory. The player can choose to avoid the locations of the possible second and third battles, and can refuse to fight the fourth.

Turks:Reno is often accompanied by Turks:Rude, and at one point fights alongside Turks:Elena.

All of the Turks always retreat from battle when defeated; however, the player always receives some EXP, AP and items for defeating them, although in some battles the player can only collect the spoils for the Turk they defeat first.

When fought in Gongaga and Sector 8, it is possible to get a preemptive attack on Reno because there are random battles in the room he is fought in.

BattlesEdit

First battle - Sector 7Edit

FFVII Electro-mag Rod

Reno uses Electro-mag Rod.

Cloud Strife, Barret Wallace, and Tifa Lockhart encounter Turks:Reno on top of the Sector 7 Support Pillar. Turks:Reno resists Lightning and is immune to most status effects. He uses his Short Staff as standard physical attack. His best attack is Electro-mag Rod, which can temporarily paralyze a party member, although he can also use it as a counter-attack if hit with Lightning damage.

Reno's Pyramid always renders a party member imprisoned and flags them defeated; if all party members are trapped in Pyramids, it is Game Over. An unaffected character can perform a physical attack (magic also works but is unnecessary) on the imprisoned character to break the pyramid. Fire and Ice are effective and tend to do twice as much damage as physical attacks.

Turks:Reno will escape once his HP is depleted.

Second battle - GongagaEdit

The party next encounters Reno alongside Rude in the Gongaga Jungle. This is an optional location that can be skipped on the party's way to Cosmo Canyon. This battle is also one of the few boss battles in Final Fantasy VII where the player can get a preemptive battle.

Turks:Reno favors Turk Light, which does the most damage of his abilities. Despite its appearance it does not do fire-based damage. He will use Electroprod as a counter-attack if hit with Lightning damage.

Whichever of the two Turks, Turks:Reno or Turks:Rude, is defeated first is the one whose loot is collected by the party, and also determines the EXP and AP received. Reno is the default target, and his item drop is an unusually powerful item for this level, a seven-slot staff for Aeris: the Fairy Tale; Rude's is a X-Potion.

While this battle is optional, the player can get a small bit of story from taking part.

Third battle - GelnikaEdit

FFVII Neo Turk Light

Reno uses Neo Turk Light.

The party encounters Turks:Reno for the third time at the Gelnika, another optional location. Turks:Reno is again accompanied by Turks:Rude.

Reno can only be found in the Gelnika if the party travels there immediately after receiving the submarine, before Midgar is attacked by Diamond Weapon. If the player misses their chance, any visit to the Gelnika will find it empty of the Turks.

Reno's Neo Turk Light attack always inflicts Confusion on a target. He will use Electroprod 2 as a counter-attack if hit with Lightning damage. This is the first opportunity to steal the Tough Ring accessory. It increases both Vitality and Spirit by 50.

Fourth battle - Midgar UndergroundEdit

The final time the party may fight Reno is beneath Midgar, in the Sector 8 Underground. This fight is optional, and may be skipped by telling the Turks that "you don't feel like fighting", as long as the player has completed the sidequest involving the Turks in Wutai Village. This battle can also be skipped if the player avoids stepping on a specific part of the floor; if one runs behind the middle pillar of the area where the battle is supposed to start as soon as the area begins loading, the battle never triggers.

This battle can be preemptive. If this happens, however, Turks:Elena will still get the first turn and she has Sneak Attack enabled for the battle.

Turks:Reno fights alongside Turks:Rude and Turks:Elena. Once one of the three Turks is beaten, all of them will run, meaning no EXP or items from the other two. A good idea will be defeat the three Turks with one attack to get more EXP and AP.

This is the second opportunity to steal the Tough Ring accessory (known as the Touph Ring in the PlayStation version). Turks:Reno has the lowest Vitality of the three Turks, so to end this battle quickly, the party should focus their attacks to Turks:Reno.
