Want to learn all the Enemy Skills Materia abilities? This Final Fantasy 7 Remake Enemy Skills Location Guide tells you where to find each monster that has an Enemy Skill that, when equipped with the Enemy Skill Materia, can be learned by one of your characters and used in future battles.
Enemy Skills Materia is one of the most popular Materia from the original Final Fantasy 7. It makes somewhat of a return in Final Fantasy 7 Remake, but moreso in spirit than actual function. There are only 4 different Enemy Skills that you can learn and most of them are situational at best. I rarely found a reason to use an Enemy Skill over an ability or magical materia, ATB is just too valuable. However, you can be the judge of that with the location of all 4 Enemy Skills featured below.
