The lists on this page are largely incomplete.

There is a plethora of items to be collected in Final Fantasy VII. This page contains lists of regular items and key items.

Regular items[edit]

These are the items that you see in your inventory. They can be used in battle, from the menu, and some can even be used in the field.
