The Crazy Motorcycle minigame from Final Fantasy VII

Minigames, sometimes also known as subgames, are common in Final Fantasy games, both as just something else to do, or to get strong and rare items.


Mini Games


Final Fantasy

While onboard the boat, pressing a certain button combination will unlock a sliding numbers puzzle called 15 Puzzle. The GBA versions requires holding down the A button and pressing the B button 55 times. Later versions have a time limit to it, with faster times giving the player better rewards.

Final Fantasy II

The Minigame in the Dawn of Souls version

While riding the snowcraft, holding down A and pressing the B button(Holding X and Pressing O in the psp version) 22 times will unlock a Memory puzzle. A 4-by-4 grid will appear, with two of each character portrait. They will then flip over, and the player have to flip them over, trying to match them. Doing it as quickly as possible with few errors gives better prizes.

In the GBA version, having a character with Level 16 Toad spell will allow the player to play the Memory puzzle's Frog Mode, where all character portraits are replaced with their Frog counterparts, making it much more difficult, but better prizes are obtained, such as Genji Equipment.

Final Fantasy IV

Main article: Whyt#Minigames

In the Nintendo DS version of the game, five minigames are available from the Fat Chocobo. These minigames require use of a stylus to the Nintendo DS's touchscreen. These minigames can give the player items and increase Whyt's stats.

Final Fantasy VII

In Final Fantasy VII there are several mini games, most of them originally being part of the game's storyline, and available at the Gold Saucer later in the game.

  • Chocobo Racing - The player can ride a chocobo, either automated or manually. Breeding your own Chocobo is also allowed.
  • Snowboarding - Ride a Snowboard down an icy slope, available both as the real thing and a simulation in the Gold Saucer.
  • Crazy Motorcycle - When the party escapes from Midgar, Cloud gets on a motorcycle, and must protect the car with his friends in from the Shinra. Available as a simulation in the Gold Saucer later on.
  • Arm Wrestling - Wrestle either a normal wrestler or a sumo wrestler. Simulation in Gold Saucer.
  • Mog's World - A day in the life of a Mog. It's the Mog's day to learn how to fly, and to do it, the player will have to feed him Kupo Nuts. Simulation in Gold Saucer.
  • Submarine - When the Huge Materia has to be recovered from the Turks, the player has to find them and shoot them with this mini game. Available as a simulation in the Gold Saucer later on.

Final Fantasy VIII

In Final Fantasy VIII there is one huge mini game called Triple Triad, which is a card game. There is also a Chocobo Forest minigame.

Final Fantasy IX

Final Fantasy X

There are several mini games in Final Fantasy X, the most prominent being Blitzball.

Final Fantasy X-2

There are many minigames in this game; several being unlocked in missions, or simply by progressing through the chapters:

  • Gunner's Gauntlet - A third-person shooter minigame in which Yuna must travel from Besaid village to the beach in a time limit, killing Fiends along the way.
  • Sphere Break - A mathematical puzzle game played by collecting coins.
  • Blitzball - Played completely differently to the previous game, as more of a manager-type game, where the player trains the team and chooses the play tactics, rather than directly controlling the team players.
  • Tower Calibration - Each of the towers in the Thunder Plains has its' own simple minigame involving pressing the correct button at the correct time. There are 3 styles of games, depending on whether it is Yuna, Rikku, or Paine calibrating the tower.
  • Excavation - Finding spare parts or items in the various expanses of Bikanel Island.
  • Cactuar Hunt - Similar to the sidequest from Final Fantasy X, except the Cactuars are now scattered across Spira, and must lose to a shooting-based minigame against Yuna before returning to Bikanel Island.
  • The Calm Lands contains the most minigames in the game, all costing "Credits" from a certain company to play:
    • Lupine Dash - Similar to real-world horse-racing, players bet a certain amount of credits on the Lupine they think will win.
    • Sky Slots - The player must line up 3 of the same fiend in a row, similar to a slot machine.
    • Reptile Run - The player controls a Reptile that must travel from one end of the field to the other in a time limit while avoiding enemy fiends.
    • Gull Force - The player controls a gull that must shoot the "correct" gull out of the 5 that are flying towards it.

From Grand Theft Wiki

Minigames are games within a video game. Minigames in the GTA series are typically distinct from side missions in that they employ unique controls schemes or graphics that are not typically seen outside these minigames, and tend to have very limited benefits or none at all.

Minigames are small games in which player(s) set out to complete a certain objective. These games sometimes allow players to gain experience and items. They are identified with a red star File:Minigame icon.png icon on the map. Minigames can be repeated, unlike quests or miniquests which can only be completed once.
