We first must recruit Gau into our party. First enter a random battle here on the Veldt. Defeat any of the enemies in the battle, but do it SLOWLY – don’t execute an attack until the previous ally’s has been completed.

After the battle, Gau will appear. If you hit him, he’ll flee like before (which is why you DON’T rush). When he appears, select the Dried Meat from your “Items” and use it on Gau. After a relatively long and amusing cutscene, Gau will join your party.

Gau arrives naked. That’s not a joke - he has no equipment, so put some on him and cover his shame. Now, he has the ability called Leap . If he uses it on an enemy (whom we’ll call “X”) in battle, he’ll leave. He’ll eventually come back after fighting a battle against enemies “Y” and “Z” (just random enemies, okay?). He’ll then get Rages for the Leaped-upon enemy “X” and the enemies in the previous battle (“Y” and “Z”).

Gau will appear after a long battle. Throw him the Dried Meat and he will join you.

That being said, there are a ****-load of Rages. So, yeah, get started. Some of them are good, some not so much. Chase him around like that if you want for a while; eventually, you’ll have to go to the Crescent Mountain, found south/southwest of Mobliz.

Join the fight against Kefka, a maniacal, crazy, clown lookalike (who is scarier than that sounds), as he attempts to bring the world to ruin. You take control of a multitude of very colorful characters (including a little girl with a paintbrush!) all of whom are joined together by fate, united by their mutual hatred of Kefka and the Empire. Final Fantasy VI is a vibrant, hilarious world and one of the most loved games of the series due to its excellent writing and complex battle system.

Our guide offers full assistance in your journey through the world including:

  • A full walkthrough from start to finish of the main story.
  • How to acquire all Espers, including the extra ones like Cactuar and Gilgamesh.
  • How to find every character when in the World of Ruin.
  • All side quests from the Cultists’ Tower to how to acquire Lores for Strago.
