Powerful weapons to Steal early on
Early on in the game you can steal powerful weapons that cannot be bought until you reach Junon for the first time. They are the best you can find at that point in the game.
Striking Staff (Aeris) - Steal from Eligor (creature that appears to be riding some sort of chariot) that appears in the Train Graveyard.
Hardedge (Cloud) - Steal from SOLDIER 3RD (sword wielding enemies) that appear on the 67th Floor of the Shinra Building.
Atomic Scissors (Barret) - Steal from Custom Sweeper (large robot similar to the ones you fought in the No.1 Reactor) that appear outside Midgar in the Midgar Area of the world map.
Grand Glove (Tifa) - Steal from the creature in the Mythril Mines that is wielding a ball and chain (sorry, but the name of the creature escapes me).
As for Red XIII's and Yuffie's, I'll submit them when I find them, if there are any.
