Ruby Weapon is one of the two Superbosses of Final Fantasy VII, along with the Emerald Weapon. In Final Fantasy VII, it is one of the two Weapons added in the American, PAL and International version of the game. Ruby Weapon is one of five Weapons that the planet has produced and dispatched to cleanse any threats to its continued existence.
This is not the final boss, but rather an optional boss which has a lot of HP, which is somewhere in the range of 800,000-850,000 (about 7 times as much as the final boss). Ruby Weapon is a huge monster, which resides in the sand around the Gold Saucer in the later discs of the game. You can only approach it by airship or chocobo. It can instantly and unpreventably kill any character with one of its attacks, unless you're at a high level with high stats, making it an extremely hard boss. And yet, with the right strategy and equipment, a player will be able to defeat Ruby Weapon in 10 minutes or less, given that Cloud's stats are maxed out.
