Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth - How To Get The Emerald Witch Card

Acquire the Emerald Witch card to boost your deck in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth.


There's a certain narrative arc in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, one that's surprisingly tied to a minigame. During the later stages, you can even acquire powerful rewards. Here's our guide on how to get the legendary Emerald Witch card in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. Likewise, please be reminded that this article contains spoilers.

How to get the Emerald Witch card in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

The Emerald Witch card can be yours upon defeating opponent #29, which lets you go from the Blood Sovereign rank to the Blood Executioner rank. We've got the full process outlined in our opponents and rankings guide.

Where to find the Monster of Chaos

Once you reach the Blood Sovereign rank, Chadley will inform you that your next opponent is in Nibelheim. Head to the open yard to the right of Shinra Manor to find an individual known as the Monster of Chaos waiting for you.

How to win the match

The Monster of Chaos loves to use cards like Jabberwock and Joker. Basically, your enemy's focus is on debuffing and destroying cards, all to act as a feeder for the Joker. This is usually followed by Yin & Yang, a replacer card. When it switches with a card that's in play, it also increases the power of affected cards based on the value of the one it replaced. Let's not forget some Insectoid Chimeras, which can also replace and add pips as openings for pushes.

Lastly, there's the Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth Emerald Witch card. It can buff allies and enemies along a diamond-shaped pattern, so it's something to watch out for.

We countered this playstyle by focusing on our own self-enhancers like Ifrit. We even got lucky when we managed to place a Loveless that was almost completely surrounded by our own cards. You can learn about these tactics in our best cards guide.

As you can see, the Emerald Witch card is suitable for B1 or B2 placements. There are certainly some risks involved, since it's guaranteed to buff enemy cards, too. However, if you have setups that utilize power enhancers from buffed enemy cards (i.e. Space Ranger or Adjudicator), then you shouldn't worry too much.

That's how you get the Emerald Witch card in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. After this, Chadley will inform you about one final challenge: the Shadowblood Queen.

Spoiler time: Monster of Chaos and Emerald Witch lore

Read at your own risk if you haven't reached this part of the Queen's Blood narrative:

  • The Shadowblood Queen was said to have ruled the planet eons ago. She was defeated by the Emerald Witch, who was able to rally others. It's said that only the one who holds the Emerald Witch card can defeat the champion that's empowered by the Shadowblood Queen.
  • The Monster of Chaos, if you haven't guessed by now, is Vincent Valentine. Yes, you play this one card game against him.

A grand adventure awaits you in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. We've got all the tips and strategies for you in our FF7 Rebirth guides hub.
