2 Routes Depending On Your Choices

Chapter 9 is unique in that 2 odd jobs routes exist based on your interactions with the NPCs. There are no differences in the rewards. The routes are as follows:

Ch. 9 Odd Job Routes

Route A"The Party Never Stops" & "A Dynamite Body"
Route B"The Price of Thievery" & "Shears' Counterattack"

Influenced By Prior Choices


Our team has tried, over various gameplay sessions, to figure out how the quest branching is determined, but were unable to find a conclusive answer, as there too many factors in play. It is even possible that choices from previous chapters might affect this.

That being said, in the chart below you can see two separate playthroughs we underwent where the routes diverged and the only difference was the massage we chose at Madam M's.

Get A Trophy For Clearing Both Routes

By clearing the quests in both of these routes, you can obtain a special trophy. Once you beat the game, you'll gain access to Chapter Selection, which you can use to attempt Chapter 9 over and over until you get the desired route.

Route Also Affects Cloud's Dress


Which route you go also affects what dress Cloud will be wearing later on in the story. Choose an alternating route to see all the variations in Cloud's dress!
