Performing at the Junon Parade in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth explained

To perform in Junon Parade, you will need to use the command indicated when the glowing beat line hits the command icon on your screen. For perfect performance, be sure to press the command when the white line around the command has closed around the outer edge at the same time the rhythm line hits it.

The color of the command will tell you exactly what to do at that moment:

  • Red Diamonds: Tap the indicated button once.
  • Yellow Pentagons: Tap the indicated button repeatedly at the same time as the yellow dots between the first and second pentagons.
  • Blue Hexagons: Hold the indicated command and release when you reach the last hex.

The buttons themselves aren’t too complicated to follow, but the camera angles used throughout the parade will make it more difficult to get the timing right, especially if you get dizzy easily.

How to get the Outstanding Achievement award in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

To get the Outstanding Achievement award for the Junon Parade in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, you must earn at least 100,000 positive votes at the end of your performance. While most of that score comes from getting a high, near-perfect score, it also comes from your unit alignment and overall formations made.

We strongly recommend that you create a save file just before speaking to the commander in Upper Junon to begin the parade. This way, if you don’t get the prize, you can come back to this moment to modify your Units and try again.

You can increase your chances of reaching over 100,000 positive votes in the Junon Parade by performing three of the three-star formations accurately. You will need to find all the 7th Infantry Units around Upper Junon to give yourself the best chance of opening up the appropriate training options.

To get the three three-star formation performance options for your parade performance, here is the best Junon Parade formation:

  • x2 grenadiers
  • x1 fire soldier
  • x2 riot soldiers

You can further increase your score by earning combo streaks during the parade by successfully executing the commands without making any mistakes between them.

If you get the correct number of positive votes, your Unit will receive the Outstanding Achievement Award at the ceremony after the parade ends.

Getting this will give you the hidden ‘Stealing The Show’ trophy and improve your relationship with Tifa and Aerith. If the prize is awarded to the Midgar Mobile Unit, you will need to go back to the previous save file and try again.
