Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth: Best Junon Parade Formation & Rewards

If you’re looking to get all the rewards and trophies you possibly can from the Junon Parade in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered!

To pass through Junon safely, Cloud and company must pretend to be Shrina Soldiers. Soon enough, you’ll be embroiled in a Parade, where you’ll need to gather members of the Seventh Infantry to perform in a celebration of Rufus Shinra’s arrival. You’ll need the right Formation during the Parade celebration to get the much-coveted Outstanding Achievement award. You’ll also need to find all 10 Seventh Infantry members for the hidden Trophy. We go through all of that below!

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth Junon Parade: All Seventh Infantry Members Locations

There are ten members of the Seventh Infantry that you can recruit to perform in the Parade. Although only five are needed, you must find all 10 to obtain the hidden Trophy. They are dispersed throughout the Junon map. You can find each of them at the following locations:

  1. Near a railing on the southwest side of Main Street. You will see some soldiers looking out at Sister Ray
  2. Outside the shopping center, posing next to a cardboard cutout of Rufus
  3. In the Glabrescent Bar in the southeast part of the Shopping Center
  4. In The Full Arsenal weapons shop, opposite the Glabrescent Bar on Main Street
  5. Talking inside the Cecilia’s of Junon shop in the Shopping Center
  6. Looking at weapon cases in the Upper Level of Shopping Center 3F on Main Street
  7. In the Assembly Room of the Barracks, which can be found on the middle level
  8. In the Briefing Room on the Upper Level of the Barracks
  9. Up the stairs to the Le Sourie bar, just to the other side of the Shopping Center
  10. In the Larboard Garrison in the northwest section of the Shopping Center

Do note that you only need to recruit five sets of Seventh Infantry units for the mission. However, it’s worth getting all ten if you want all the rewards!

Best Junon Parade Formation in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

The best Junon Parade formation is two Riot Troopers, two Grenadiers, and one Flametrooper. This is because this Formation grants a three-star difficulty formation across the Parade’s Ramuh, Shiva, and Ifrit formations. It will apply the highest Formation Bonus to your score, increasing your chances of getting 100,000 positive votes for the presidential award and optional Trophy.

However, getting 100,000 positive notes is no easy task! Even with the right Formations, you must still play a rhythm game that tests your reactions to rack up the highest score. You must follow button prompts during your performance and hit them at the right time. The red indicators require you to tap the displayed button, the yellow indicator demands that you repeatedly tap a button as indicated, and the blue indicator has you holding the button and releasing it when you reach the end of the blue line.

Do note, as you’re using the most difficult Formations during the Parade, the rhythm game will be much harder! If you can rack up enough points with the above Formation, you’ll get some nice rewards for your troubles.
