What to Choose in Mystery Drink Choice in Final Fantasy VII Remake Sector 6 Tournament?

What you choose to have the mystery drink before the tournament in Chapter 6 in the FF7 remake makes absolutely no difference. If you choose to drink the liquid, aka I’ll taste it, Cloud will remark that it’s very thick. And, that’s about it. It doesn’t give you any buffs or debuffs, doesn’t act like a Phoenix Down or anything else. As far as we can tell, it doesn’t do a darned thing at all. If, on the other hand, you choose I don’t need that, even more nothing is going to happen. Less than nothing, because nobody drinks the “potion.”

So, yeah; whatever you do here does not one iota the story change. It doesn’t change the outcome of the tournament in any discernible way. Doesn’t help you, but doesn’t make things more difficult, either. Also, this choice is not going to affect your relationship with Aerith in the long run. If it does make some kind of dent, by the end of the whole thing, it won’t matter at all. Other choices, like who to check on first in the Sewers in Chapter 10, hold way more sway.

And, well, that’s all you need to know about the Mystery Drink choice in the new Final Fantasy 7.

To name just a few, we’ve written Give Hart 10,000 Gil or Not, Shinra Building Elevator or Stairs, and Heads or Tails.

    Hey, if I recall correctly, in the original game there was a hidden point system that would affect the outcome of certain events in wall market. It’s very likely that drinking (or not) causes a different hidden point variable to increase or decrease depending on your choices which may affect whose quests you end up getting (chocobo Sam or Madam M). Keep in mind, this is speculation, but seems fairly likely since the original game had a hidden point system like this.
