Once you’ve finished off the first section of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, you’ll be heading toward all kinds of new and exciting challenges peppered all over the Grass Lands. However, one of these additions can be especially challenging to figure out how to overcome.

At some point, you’ll find yourself approaching a giant mushroom in the area. If you enter it, you’ll trigger a mini-game that sees you catching moogles so that they can get back to work and open up the Moogle Emporium. This seems to be a riff on the child-finding game involving moogles from Final Fantasy VII Remake.

However, as we mentioned at the top, it’s a bit confounding. You’re supposed to catch the moogles, but there’s no “catch” button. Meanwhile, they’re constantly throwing attacks your way, and if you take three of them, you have to start the whole mini-game all over again.

It can be frustrating, but don’t worry; we’ve got a strategy that saw us through this challenge with relative ease. The trick is not to run at any time, really. Running puts you right past the moogles most of the time. Instead, you want to use the standard speed of Cloud’s jogging to corral these little menaces and only run if the moogle you’re chasing is getting too far from the mushroom.

Now, for how to catch them. Start with the ones closest to the mushroom in the middle of the arena and try to arrange your position so that you’re chasing them toward the mushroom. You might have to move slowly and change your approach from side to side to keep them from slipping out of your trap, but in most cases, once you get them to the tiny fence surrounding the mushroom, one last push will get them to give up.

In our experience, it was easier if we drove them straight toward an opening, but occasionally, they would just give up once they reached the fence, even if the fence was still blocking them from reaching the mushroom. With these tips, you should be able to tackle this challenge for yourself in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth with a minimal level of frustration.
