After seeing all the DMW scenes, you will be rewarded with the Genji Armor. To claim this, enter the DMW menu where a pop-up will appear with the Genji Armor. This piece of equipment will give Zack a 99,999 limit on HP, as well as Endure and Regeneration effects.

The Genji Shield can be quite tricky to obtain. To earn this item, you must first unlock the Magic Pot through mission 10-2-3. After doing so, you’ll want to head to the mission titled M-7-6-6, where you will be searching for a random encounter with a Magic Pot.

After performing the moves listed above, you will be met with the Genji Shield! The Genji Shield will grant you many different abilities, such as Auto Wall, which is a permanent Barrier and MBarrier. Additionally, an ability that prevents all status effects is added with the Genji Shield, as well as the ability to absorb amounts of HP from Fire, Lighting, and Ice elemental attacks.
