Obtaining Phoenix can be a game-changer for players navigating the map, especially on higher difficulty levels where ambushes are frequent. Phoenix’s Rebirth Flame ability is particularly effective against groups of enemies, making it invaluable in tough encounters.

Moreover, summoning Phoenix is integral to completing the Limit Break Collector Achievement, which requires acquiring all DMV images. To unlock Phoenix, players must reach Chapter 8 and solve the first of the Seven Wonders. This milestone occurs after encountering Sephiroth and Zack in Nibelheim, just outside the town inn. However, before engaging Sephiroth, players must interact with another NPC to initiate the summoning process.
