While many players focus on boss fights in Crisis Core, Movers are underrated enemies for Zack. They have high Vitality and Spirits, ranking above other tough foes. Defeating Movers can reward players with substantial SP (Solider Points), which is crucial for upgrading combat abilities.

Earning SP in Crisis Core is challenging but vital for enhancing your character, especially for Materia Fusion and DMW in later stages. This guide provides details on Mover enemies, their stats, and the rewards you get after defeating them. Let’s dive in.

Crisis Core Mover

Movers are sweet orange balls that, at a glance, might look cute bouncing around. However, your character is in serious trouble once these balls start attacking with one of the highest stats from regular enemies.

Moreover, players can encounter three variants of the Mover enemies throughout the Crisis Core Reunion campaign. Each variant features unique stats, locations, drops, and SP rewards during the campaign. For that instance, discussing them individually and what you can expect during the specific portion of the campaign is best.  

Mover (Original Enemy)

The original Mover enemy can be encountered during the Final Dungeon of Crisis Core Reunion, specifically in the Banora Underground during the “Cage of Binding” storyline. They are also found in mission M8-5-2 – “Treasure info 2.”

To engage Movers in the Banora Underground, clear the dungeon, and you’ll face these bouncing enemies. Be aware that their HP stats can be surprising, but the rewards for defeating them are worthwhile.

Here are the stats for the original Mover in Crisis Core:

  • Level: 41
  • HP: 5,870 (21,540 on Hard mode)
  • MP: 889
  • VIT: 233
  • SPR: 250
  • SP: 2,000

Defeating Movers can reward you with Silver Armlets and offer common Circlet steals or rare Hypno Crown steals. These items are valuable for stat upgrades.

During combat, Movers use abilities like Delta Attack, where all three Mover enemies counterattack Zack, causing substantial Critical Damage. They can also cast Graviga, an Area of Effect spell that drains 50% of Zack’s HP on impact.

While Movers are immune to Elemental Affinities, players can exploit their HP with unique Materia like Blast Wave or the Goddess Materia in Crisis Core Reunion. If you plan to encounter the original Mover in the endgame, consider obtaining these Materia to gain an advantage.

Mover EX

Mover EX, a close relative of the original Mover, shares similar stats but can be encountered early in the game and rewards up to 8,000 SP.

However, Mover EX is tougher than its counterpart, with a massive HP pool. Defeating it early presents a significant challenge.

You can encounter Mover EX in missions like M2-5-2, M6-5-5, and M7-6-5 throughout Crisis Core. We won’t spoil the mission objectives, but finding Mover EX is straightforward.

Mover EX Stats (Encountered in mentioned missions):

  • Level: 72
  • HP: 34,860 (52,500 on Hard mode)
  • MP: 6,723
  • VIT: 238
  • SPR: 254
  • SP: 8,000

While Mover EX has slightly higher VIT and SPR, you can defeat it using the same strategy as the Original Mover. Be cautious of its Ultima ability, a powerful spell in Crisis Core Reunion.

Defeating Mover EX may reward you with Rune Armlets and, if you’re into stealing, you can get 2 Mythrils as common steals and Flare as a rare steal from Mover EX.

Mover RE

Mover RE is another variant of the Mover enemies, offering a different challenge compared to Mover EX. It excels in SPR, VIT, and ATK stats and rewards a good amount of SP when defeated.

You can encounter Mover RE in early, mid, and endgame missions like M2-3-3, M6-4-1, and M8-6-1.

Mover RE Stats (Encountered in mentioned missions):

  • Level: 60
  • HP: 14,860 (31,450 on Hard mode)
  • MP: 3,333
  • ATK: 88
  • SPR: 251
  • VIT: 234
  • SP: 4,000

To deal with Mover RE, equip substantial upgrades and Materia to handle Delta and Graviga attacks. Defeating it may reward you with a Gold Armlet and common Hypno Crown steals, with a rare steal of a Lunar Harp.

Three Stars

Three Stars are the most powerful Mover variant, boasting high VIT, SPR, and ATK. They use abilities like Graviga, Delta Attack, and Ultima to pose a significant challenge to Zack.

You can encounter Three Stars early and late in the game, thanks to game-balancing mechanics.

Three Stars Stats (Encountered in mentioned missions):

  • Level: 80
  • HP: 67,850 (101,101 on Hard mode)
  • MP: 9,999
  • VIT: 242
  • SPR: 255
  • ATK: 135
  • SP: 20,000

Defeating Three Stars rewards over 20,000 SP in a single run, making them the best and most challenging Mover variant in Crisis Core Reunion.

You can find Three Stars in missions M9-5-2 and M9-5-3. These formidable foes drop Mythril Armlets for character stat boosts and offer common Tri-Fire steals or rare Tri-Thundaga steals. Prepare well for this ultimate encounter with SP-rich Movers.

You can learn more about these steals in our definitive Tri-Thundaga in Crisis Core Reunion guide. 

Closing Words

Movers and their variants are easily the best options for players to farm SP in Crisis Core Reunion. These enemies are undoubtedly challenging to tackle for some players, but the payout of SP, along with multiple and easy encounters during missions, are definitely worth the trouble. 

These enemies also allow players to earn more SP than the already mentioned payout in the stats for each Mover. This works under the concept of defeating Mover enemies consecutively without taking any hits from these enemies. For that instance, all you need to do is to avoid receiving a strike from the Mover during combat, and you will be all set to earn more SP.
