* In Northern Cave, there's a divided way, in wich Cloud should chooses who is going with him and who's going to the other way. If the player sends everyone but Cloud to another way, Cloud will be the single character in the party. However, if you access the PHS menu (in which you change party members), you ''need'' to choose three party members, or else you can't exit from the menu and will be stuck in there until you reset the game.

* The original Japanese version had a bug in the World of Ruin that would send you back to the World of Balance: in the Opera House, if you left any of the rats alive when you needed to avoid or fight them while climbing the rafters in order to stop Ultros back in World of Balance, you could revisit that location in World of Ruin and fight any of the alive ones and then intentionally lose a battle against them. This will cause the cutscene where Ultros succeeds to play without Ultros actually being present, sending you back outside the Opera House in the World of Balance. You can't come back to the World of Ruin. This was fixed in all subsequent releases.

This (which is unlikely to happen considering how weak the said enemies are at this point of the game but still not impossible), it will cause the cutscene where Ultros succeeds in his plan to play without Ultros actually being present, sending you back outside the Opera House in the World of Balance. You can't come back to the World of Ruin. This was fixed in all subsequent releases.

* In the third world, it is possible to land the airship on the entrance to Guido's cave. The airship is then lost, since walking onto that square will cause you to enter the cave. The airship is, of course, necessary to beat the game. It is also possible to lose the Hiryuu this way, and lose the black Chocobo by landing in the center of the Mua forest, but losing those won't make the game unwinnable.

* It is possible to deliberately, or just by bad luck, place the Highwind in such a way that you exit it and end up on the other side of a hillside, with no way back into the airship, causing you to be stuck permanently.

* You better have enough healing items on you when you reach Ultamecia's castle, because once you enter, you can't get out. To make matters worse, you don't have access to your abilities until you beat a certain boss.

** There is one way ''and one way only'' to get out of this situation without having to restart the entire game from scratch: Yojimbo. If you had the foresight to bring him, his Zanmato Overdrive is capable of a one hit kill against absolutely every single enemy in the game regardless of how low your personal stats are. But his willingness to use Zanmato is directly influenced by how much he likes you and how much money you have - if he hates your guts and/or haven't got a penny to your name you really are finished.

* It is possible to get autosaved at the start of boss fights without enough ammo to win or items to survive, most notably against Weiss, because he's too fast and strong to fight hand-to-hand.
** Though soome boss fights [[AvertedTrope Avert]] this by having a vending machine ''in the boss arena''. The battle against Rosso the Crimson is one such battle.
