* Obtaining Aerith's final limit move is extremely time consuming, and damn near impossible without a guide. You first have to find a man living in a cave, who can only be gotten to if you have the buggy or any vehicle/chocobo capable of crossing shallow rivers. The problem is that the game doesn't tell you that you can just drive the buggy into Costa Del Sol to use it on the other continent, and the man's cave is exceptionally well hidden. When you speak to him, he merely tells you how many times you've ran from battle. This seems extremely useless, but interesting, unless you know that if the last two digits of this number are the same (e.g. 44, 133, or 11), then he will give you an item. This is never hinted to in game. ''Sometimes'' he just gives you a bolt ring, and ''sometimes'' he gives you a piece of Mythril. You then have to take this piece of mythril to a weapon maker near Gongaga, and redeem it to get one of two items. One of these items is Aerith's final limit, and the other is a piece of armor. This can only be done once, and the game gives no hint as to which one it is. Oh, and hope you manage to do this on the first disc only, since [[ItWasHisSled Aerith dies at the end of disc one, making this information useless past this point]]. Even the ''guide'' doesn't tell you about the buggy trick, which is about the only way to get it while Aerith is still alive.

* Optimizing Cloud's Wall Market disguise can be this, especially for a first time player. In order to gain access to Don Corneo's mansion, the player needs to gather a dress and a wig for Cloud to wear. These are the only mandatory items, and will lead to Tifa being chosen. If you want Cloud to be the Don's "girl", you have to also obtain some lingerie, perfume, a tiara, and make-up. The game doesn't tell you how to get these items, and you have to stumble around Wall Market completing random tasks for people. There are a few possible items for each type, too. While there is some element of intuitiveness to most parts of it—win the squats competition for the best wig, buy the shopkeeper the most expensive drink for the best tiara, give the woman in the bar restroom the most relevant medicine for the best perfume—it doesn't really become evident until you already have some familiarity with the segment. Even if you've been through it a few times, there's still no real indicator of which dress is the optimal one to pick, and the underwear you get actually has no effect at all, which runs directly contrary to every other part of the segment. Good luck figuring out how it all works without a guide.

* In the Nintendo DS remake, the only way to unlock the Onion Knight class in the game is to use the game's letter sending system to send a certain number of letters to another player over wifi. Not only is this never mentioned in the game, Creator/SquareEnix seems not to have realized it might not even be possible for some people. Don't have easy access to a wifi hotspot? Don't have any friends who also have this game? ''Too bad''. With the shutdown of wifi connection for DS and Wii in early 2014, this is now impossible.
