Unlocking Cait Sith: A Step-by-Step Guide

Cait Sith isn’t immediately available in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. Players will have to progress through the game, with Cait Sith becoming playable in the latter stages, specifically during Chapter 9 – The Planet Stirs. However, players will get a glimpse of him earlier, in Chapter 8 – All that Glitters.

As players venture to the Haunted Hotel at the Gold Saucer for some rest, Cait Sith makes a grand entrance, showcasing his trademark quirky personality. But the respite is short-lived. The plot thickens when Barret is wrongfully accused of a crime. Players must then embark on a mission to the Corel Prison to uncover the true culprit. Upon their return, Cait Sith joins the party, and players can include him in their lineup by editing their party in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth.

Is Cait Sith a Worthy Addition to Your Party?

Cait Sith is undeniably one of the most entertaining characters to play in the game. However, when it comes to battling formidable enemies, particularly bosses, he may not be the first choice. That said, Cait Sith boasts a range of unique abilities that can be advantageous in certain situations. His signature ability, Let’s Ride!, allows him to summon his Moogle, which can be utilized in various ways, including as a mount or an independent party member.

The abilities at your disposal will depend on how you choose to use the Moogle. While Cait Sith may not excel in any particular area, his versatility, especially with his Moogle, makes him a delight to play. He’s a great choice for regular battles against overworld enemies, adding a fresh dynamic to the combat that can otherwise become repetitive in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. So, while he may not be your go-to for boss fights, don’t overlook Cait Sith’s potential to liven up your gameplay experience.
