An iconic area from the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII, the Midgar Wasteland is a desolate area surrounding the ruins of Midgar and the city of Edge.
Barren of plant life due to the siphoning of the planet's life energy in Midgar, the entire area is a desolate wasteland on the road to recovery after the ceasing and destruction of the siphoning reactors.

The grave of Zack Fair, a hero and friend of Cloud Strife's, is located on a hill overlooking the wasteland. The grave is marked by the Buster Sword, once Cloud and Zack's shared weapon through the series, and serves as a reminder to Cloud of the people he has lost.
