In Chapters 3, 8, 9, and 14, the player will have access to a set of Odd Job sidequests for that chapter. After you continue to a certain point in each chapter, you won't be able to complete any of the Odd Jobs any more. That said, the game will notify you at this point, so there's no worry of missing your chance on accident.
Since completing all of the Odd Jobs in Chapter 3 will provide you with a Crescent Moon Charm, as well as allowing you to choose Tifa's dress in Chapter 9, it's worth spending a bit of time to finish all the Odd Jobs in this section.
|1||Chadley's Report||Access to Battle Intel Reports|
|2||Rat Problem||Hi-Potion x5|
|3||Nuisance in the Factory||500 gil|
|4||Lost Friends||Maiden's Tear|
|5||On the Prowl||Elixir|
|6||Just Flew In from the Graveyard||Star Bracelet|
If you're aiming to only finish one of the six quests available in this chapter, the Chadley's Report quest is recommended, as you can finish it easily while defeating enemies and as part of the main story.
The other Odd Jobs don't give substantial rewards that you can't get elsewhere in the story, so completing just a few of them without going for all six isn't a useful middle ground.
If you complete all the Odd Jobs in Chapter 3, you'll gain access to a Discovery objective Alone at Last, in which you visit Tifa's room. In addition to receiving a Crescent Moon Charm, you'll also have the opportunity to choose what dress you'd like Tifa to wear in Chapter 9, based on what you tell Tifa when she asks I wonder what would suit me.
|Type of Dress||Answer|
|Purple Dress||Something mature.|
|Chinese Style Dress||Something... sporty?|
|Japanese Style Dress||Something exotic?|
Check out our complete guide to learn how to get the alternate dress choices for Cloud and Aerith as well.
Tifa will offer Cloud a drink after you go back to Seventh Heaven. Your choice of answer will affect Tifa's affection toward Cloud.
Check the link below for the effects of each answer!
Compared to Odd Jobs, which only yield Gil, completing Battle Intel for Chandley will allow you to purchase new Materia that isn't available elsewhere. This makes Battle Intel a must for completionists.
On the other hand, because it's possible to complete Battle Intel tasks as you progress through the story, even after this chapter, there's no real need to go out of your way to complete them now.
After you've finished the Scrap Boulevard segment, outside the Weapon shop, you can find the character Katie shouting about how many monsters have been slain that day. If you talk to her, she'll give you rewards for defeating a certain number of monsters during the chapter.
All of the Rewards can be obtained normally during gameplay, so there's no need to go out of your way to complete this, but it's useful to grab if you've racked up some kills while completing Odd Jobs and Battle Intel.
|50||MP Up Materia|
Interestingly, the Hoodlums don't count as slain monsters, so don't count on them for your score!
These four opponents have somewhat higher HP than the standard opponent, but you shouldn't have too much trouble handling them by taking them out one by one and hitting them with Fire.
The Hoodlums all share a weakness to Fire, so if you're having some trouble handling them, cast Fire from a distance to deal massive damage.
