Final Fantasy VII is a game of many rumors. Many of them are beyond far-fetched and laughable, but there are a few good ones too. However, when a game has been out for more than 12 years, there's not gonna be anything left for you to discover. There is one rumor in particular, though, that might catch your attention. The Mysterious Test 0.
To sum it up, Test 0 is an enemy that appears on the bottom of the well in Corel Prison in the early Japanese version of the game. I finally managed to get my hands on this version yesterday, so I decided to see if the battle really was there and it sure was. It's a little rare, though. The first time, I got it after 5 battles, and when I recorded this, I got it after almost 10. I guess it's a 1/8 chance of getting it.
The reason why I always believed this battle was real is because it's an exact duplicate of one of the Pyramid battles. The enemies are standing in the same positions, it's got the same background and you get the same amount of EXP, AP and Gil. The scan got their HP wrong, though. It's 30000 and not 25000. Since Sense doesn't work on enemies with 30000 HP or more, I use other methods to show exactly how much HP they have. Apparently, they are vulnerable to all statuses, and cannot be stolen from or morphed into anything. If you manipulate them, you'll just get a blank command box.
And just in case you don't misunderstand anything, this is an actual random battle in the game. You don't need a Gameshark to access it. I have no idea if the developers left it there on purpose or if they simply forgot to take it out. Since it's not there in any later versions of the game, my bet is they simply forgot.
With a Gameshark, however, you can access all the other test battles. The Pyramids don't exist in this game, so all the test battles consist of actual monsters from the game, some of them on rather curious backgrounds. I'll make a video soon.
I have no idea why that happens to Cait Sith. Some times when you use the Debug Room to get somewhere, that just happens. It's the same thing that happens in my "Level 0 Glitch" video.
Cloud's Max HP of 7777 is pure coincidence. I was going to level him up to 99, but then I suddenly noticed he had 7777 HP, so I decided to keep him there.
