Vice is an enemy in Final Fantasy VII encountered in the Sector 5 Slums after leaving the Sector 5 Church.


# Formation
378 Vice A, Vice B
379 Vice (Back Attack)


Sector 5 Slums
Street West 378, 379 (Back Attack)
Street East 378, 379 (Back Attack)


Vice will steal items from the party and escape, but if they are killed before they escape the item will be returned. If they escape, the item is lost forever. Although Vice has five attacks, it will only ever use three of them under normal circumstances; Vice will never use the move Seize, and it may only use Hit if under Manipulate or Berserk. It will use Steal and Grind equally, and will use Escape once an item has been stolen from the player.

Beyond stealing items Vice is not a dangerous foe, and can be useful because the player can steal Speed Drinks from them, the only way to cast Haste until Gongaga.


It is advised to kill them quickly, perhaps via magic, to prevent them from stealing from the party.
