How to Get the Alexander Summon in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

Your dream of piloting a giant laser-wielding robot in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is within reach. This guide details how to acquire and utilize the mighty Alexander summon, a towering testament to metallic might.

How to Get the Alexander Summon in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

You’ll encounter the opportunity to summon Alexander upon reaching Chapter 6: Fool’s Paradise, starting in North Corel – Costa del Sol. Similar to other summons, you’ll face Alexander in Chadley’s Combat Simulator. However, the choice is yours: fight immediately, or gather intel first.

Crystal Clear Advantage: Weakening Alexander (Optional)

Alexander boasts three crystals that weaken him before the battle. However, only the first crystal is accessible in Chapter 6. The remaining two lie hidden within the scorching sands of South Corel, reachable only after acquiring the Buggy in Chapter 9.

Here’s where you’ll find the crystals, accompanied by their button sequences for the Crystal Memory Matrix:

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth Alexander

  • Crystal #1: Located within a small cavern south of the Corel Mines’ dirt path entrance. Button sequence: Triangle-Triangle-Circle-Triangle-Triangle-Circle.
  • Crystal #2: Found near abandoned structures reachable with your grappling hook. Button sequence: Circle-X-wait-Circle-wait-Circle-X-wait-Circle.
  • Crystal #3: Nestled close to the ravine separating the two plateaus. Utilize grapple points to reach the opposite ledge. Button sequence: Square-Circle-Circle-wait-Square-Circle-Circle.

Conquering the Metallic Titan

Alexander boasts impressive defenses against most attacks until both arms are disabled. But beware! His abilities, like Radiant Wave and Wave Cannon, accumulate “karma” energy. The higher the energy level, the more devastating his ultimate attack, Divine Judgment, becomes. Consider using Esuna to dispel any debilitating effects.

Defeating Alexander grants you his summon materia. Here’s what it offers in battle:

  • Summon Cost: 2 ATB (once the meter is full)
  • Tracking Beam: Unleash a barrage of lasers (1 ATB)
  • Grand Laser: Fire a powerful beam of light (2 ATB)
  • Ultimate: Divine Judgment: Deal massive non-elemental magic damage

So there you have it! With this knowledge, you can add the mighty Alexander to your arsenal in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. Remember, while Alexander might not sing and dance, his firepower will leave its mark on the battlefield.
