In Zone 1-3, there
are two Extra Life icons. One is at the top center, the other in the left
corner of the stage. Once you collect them, let yourself be defeated. When you
return, the icons will reset. Your Extra Life counter stops at nine, but the
game will keep track of any lives over that.

stand on them. The only way to get past them is to jump to them in the
following order: right, right, left, right, right, right, left, right, right.
Jungle 4: Boss battle: To defeat the saber toothed
tiger, wait until some of the coconuts start to shake. Then, hit the ground
with your club to make them fall. Make sure that the tiger is under the coconut
so it will hit him. It will take five hits before he is defeated.
Using stones: Use stones and place them
at sensors to keep doors open and elevators in position. Throw a stone to
distract aliens, and to allow enough room to kill them. Throwing a stone
triggers some laser sensors, killing the aliens easily.
Using the Tele Receiver and Transmitter: There is only one time that
the Tele Receiver and the Tele Transmitter must be used, which is very shortly
they are found. Use them later to speed up game time by avoiding the need to
run back a long distance.

Recommended pairing: Fury with Levin to give
Sety "God-like" abilities and Fee to have good speed and magic
Ira with Arden to give both Skasaher and Lakche awesome
strength and defense, though speed and skill will lack slightly.
Lachesis with Holin
to give Delmud the ability Holin has that negates defensive stats and to give
Delmud better skill. Nanna is virtually useless without a good healing staff.
Bridget with Jamuka
to give Faval three attacks per "engagement". Pati's only use is to
Adean with Mideel
to start Lester off with more than a steel bow. LANA will be the same as Adean
Sylvia with Claude
to make Corple have the Valkyrie Staff and that other staff Claude starts with.
Leen is the same as Sylvia.
Tailto with Azel
for Arthur and Teeny to have good magic attack and defense.
Noish is not that
great for pairing with anyone, though his children will have decent strength.
Alec would give his
children awareness and mediocre speed, though he's not good to pair with
Fin is decent; good
strength and defense, medium skill.
Lex gives very high
strength, but has low skill and speed.
Beowulf can be a
good pairing, and results in between good and mediocre stats.
Dew is not very
good other than his ability that steals health and he will give good speed

that is a route on the sign. Do not break this sign. After you complete the
round, a bus will appear pick you up.
Super moves: When your "Super"
meter is full and the word "SUPER" is displayed at the bottom of the
screen, you can do one of the corresponding button combos for the indicated
character. Note: To "glide" on the controller, use the following as
an example. To glide from Forward to Down, press Foward and while holding in
that direction, smoothly and quickly move you thumb to Down.
Guy: Super Gut
First, grab your opponent from the front. Glide the controller Forward to Down,
then press Attack (Y). This is a powerful move, usable only when bar is
flashing "SUPER". Guy punches the enemy multiple times then throws a
fire blast. The punches only hit one person, but the fire blast can hit them
Dean: Super Thunder
Glide the controller Down to Up, then press Attack (Y). Dean grabs the enemy
and his hand glows. He then does an electric choke slam, and leaps into the air
with the enemy and slams them again, damaging everyone on the screen with the

For easy ability
points go to the basement of BalCastle in World 2. Here you'll encounter Statues
in groups of 2 (4 ability points) or 5 (8 ability points). However, you will
most likely find yourself having difficulty with these stone warriors. Using a
Soft potion will kill them instantly. Just keep stocking up on Soft potions and
master all those classes that require hundreds of ability points.
Defeating the meteorite monsters: When attacking the six
purple monsters in a meteorite, have a samurai in your party. Use a GP attack
to defeat them instantly and avoid a hard battle.
99 or unlimited items: Use the following trick to
steal 99 or and unlimited quantity of any item.
Step 1: Make sure
your party consists of one Ninja and three Thieves.
Step 2: Make sure
your ninja has the Steal ability.
Step 3: Equip one
weapon onto your Ninja and leave another in the inventory. Note: This must be a
weapon which you only have a quantity of two; one equipped and one in the items
Step 4: Find an
enemy with an item you can steal.
Step 5: During
battle, have the Ninja go into item option. Select the single weapon in the
inventory and equip it onto the ninja (press Up until you see the equip option
and press X to equip it.)
Step 6: Now there
should be an empty spot in the top slot of your inventory where the weapon you
just equipped used to be.
Step 7: Exit the
menu and select the throw option.
Step 8: Throw the
empty item slot you have just cleared earlier at the enemy you wish to steal
Step 9: If the item
you are wanting to steal is a weapon that the ninja can throw or an item that
you can use (for example, a potion), then use your next turn to steal the item.
If the item you are stealing is a piece of armor, shield, or relic/ring, then
you must repeat step 8 one more time before you move on to step 10.
Step10: Once you
have stolen it, it will be listed in the inventory with blank quantity.
Step 11: If the
item you stole was a weapon, throw the weapon at the enemy. If it was a potion,
use the potion on one of your characters.
Step12: On your
next turn, go back to your items option and check your results. If it says 99
quantity after the stolen item, then you have 99. If it says 55 after the
stolen item, then you have an unlimited quantity.
In order for this
trick to work, you must not have any of the desired item in your inventory.
Also to make 55 into 99, just sort your items after the fight and it will
automatically change 55 (255/unlimited) into 99. If you try to sell an item
made into unlimited (55) the merchant will try to buy 255 of that and not an
infinite amount of times. The only way that 55 quantity stays unlimited, is if
you never sort, or sell that item.
Get both Black and White Magic: Learn X-Magic to
automatically get both Black and White Magic. If you are a Time Mage, Summoner,
Blue Mage, or another magic caster, you can also cast two spells of that type.
Easy ability points: Go to the Cave of Jacole and walk around for awhile. You will notice
that all the monsters are easily defeated except for one, Skulleater. When you
see this monster, do not attack. If you try to run, the skulleater will run before
you. When it runs, you will gain 5 ability points. If you combine that with
killing the easy squirrels for 1 ability point, you will end up with many
In World 2, in BalCastle, go to the basement. There should be
monsters called Statues there. There are groups of two or five of them, and
they are worth 4 and 8 ability points respectively. You can kill them easily
with either level 5 Doom (Death) or by using Soft items on them. They are also
worth a lot of money if you kill them.
Easier game: Master the Ninja, Monk, and
Archer jobs. You can now make all characters travelers. Give them the X-Fight
and HP 30% Up abilities with two swords on all of them to advance easily
through almost the entire game.
Hidden fortune teller: Fly twelve or thirteen
squares south of Karnak in the third world to get above a
"C" shaped extension of the land. Land in the middle of the
"C" and go underwater to find a cave. Inside is a man that reads
After you beat the
whole game, save right before you defeat the Dark King. Now go to fight until
you get to level 41. You should have around 42 White Spells, 21 Black Spells,
and 1O Wizard Spells. Now fight until you get around 1O,OOO,OO Extra Points.
Your spells should have increased by 2 or 3! Do this until you have 99 in all
three types of Spells.
Skullrus Rex Easily
The first part of DoomCastle is guarded by another version of Flamerous
Rex called Skullrus Rex. Most people would sigh and use all the magic in their
inventory. Instead, just equip the hero with the Dragon Claw and scratch him
once and he goes down. His ninja flunkies shouldn't be too much trouble after
The final boss is
the Dark King, which is very hard. But an easy way to beat him is to use Cure
on him. He should be dead in no time.
When you first
start a game, you have to get Kaeli and go to the LevelForest to defeat the monster that poisened the
trees. His name is Minotaur and is really easy to defeat. When he attacks
Kaeli, you have to fight him. To kill him instantly, have Kaeli use the Life
Spell on him and he's automatically defeated!
When you fight in a
battle field, fight the first nine battles and leave one. Go somewhere besides
a battle field (for instance, the Bone Dungeon) and get to where your exp.
points are very, very low. About 1-100. Go to a battle field where you don't
win anything and defeat the last battle. You'll get two level ups instead of
Using the Cure
spell 4-5 times to heal yourself and quaffing tons of cure potions can be very
annoying. To get a full heal, just use the Life spell. This works IN and OUT of
battle, so when you find a boss that has a special attack that can mutilate
your party in a few hits, use a Life spell to pump hp's back up.
Phobe With 680 Points
When Phobe joins
press A 3 times to get her to join as a 680 hp character. She will be a powerful
ally for a long time if you take care of her.
The Dragon Claw Sooner
Normally you're not
expected to have the amount of money Tristan wants for the dragon claw when he
gets it and offers to sell it. If you want to spend time trying to get $9000,
though, he'll give it to you. Unfortunately this can take about as long as it
would for you to normally get the dragon claw, Depending how frivolous you are
in spending your money.
At the beginning of
the game, at the first forest, there is a treasure box carrying potions. Take
the potions and leave the forest. Now go back to the forest and the treasure
box will be full of potions again! Repeat this process until you have as many
potions as you want. NOTE: You can do this in any town, forest, dungeon, etc.
that has a treasure box with any kind of healing item in it.
Once you get your
Heal Spell,( FallsBasin ) you can really hurt an enemy. If you use
your Heal Spell on an enemy, it could put them to sleep, paralyze them, poison
them, confuse them, and petrify them. It works well against those enemys that
are hard to kill.
The Exit and Life
Spells are very deadly.
Most people think that the Exit Spell will stop the battle you are currently
in, and most people think that the Life Spell will bring an enemy back to Life
you have defeated. Well, the Life Spell kills almost everybody unless they are
strong against fatal attacks. The Exit Spell kills everybody except the bosses.
In the game, go to
a battlefield and fight a couple times. Then leave for something else. When you
get to a part of the game where you need more power, go back to the
battlefields and clear it out. Then, when you come back you won't have to go
through everything all over again.
Of The Gemini Crest
Defeat one of the
battle fields in the Fire zone.
The Final Boss
Keep using cures on
the final Boss to hurt him. Use it on him approximately twenty times and he
will vanish into thin air.
information: Press Start to display the
menu, then hold Start + Select.
Defeating the Dark King: Keep using cures on the
final Boss to hurt him. Use it on him approximately twenty times and he will
vanish into thin air.
Use the cure spell
on him, but do not have Phoebe use it. Have her cure you, and then have your
character cure the Dark King. This attack will do about 14,000 damage. However,
Phoebe cures the Dark King 12,000.
Defeating Skullrus Rex: When facing Skullrus Rex on
the first floor of DoomCastle, cast the Life-spell on him.
Defeating Bosses: To defeat Bosses easier, go
through all the spots where you can fight the monsters to win things. Or, go
through all the mazes and keep fighting every monster until you gain a lot of
Defeating undead: The Cure-spell can be used
to deal damage to undead enemies, such as the skeleton soldiers, ghosts and
mummies. This is called a Zombie attack and does significant damage. Life works
the same way, but can fail sometimes. Also, the Heal-spell works the same way,
but on all the enemies. Cast Heal on a monster and it will sustain a bad status
effect, such as Poison or Paralysis.
Exploding doors: When you get the Mega
Grenades from Fireburg and you need to blow up a door, you do not need to find
a chest that contains bombs. Instead, just go to a door and press A. Note: This
trick only works with Mega Grenades, and not Bombs or Jumbo Bombs.
Unlimited Cure Potions or Heal Potions: In Foresta, you can get
three Cure Potions and three Heal potions every time. Keep entering and exiting
of Foresta as many of those potions as desired. You can actually get unlimited
Cure Potions from any house, such as the Elixir girl's.
Unlimited Items in treasure chests: Open a brown (not red)
chest and get a item, for example a regular potion. Exit this location and
re-enter. Open the chest again and the item will be in there again. Repeat this
procedure to get up to 99 of that item.
Level up twice: When you fight at a battle
ground, you can level up twice. When you have only one fight left on a battle ground
that gives you experience as a prize, or "cleaning them out", you
need to go fight elsewhere. You will then level up in the next battle you
fight. Finish off that battle ground and after you level up when it gives you
your prize of experience, you will level up again.
Fix armor status errors: Every time you get one of
Benjamin's companions to join him throughout the game, you may notice that they
seem to share the same Elemental and Special defenses listed on the status
screen. Also, at least three of the numbered statuses listed directly above
those defenses on that status screen seem to be a bit off. This is totally
incorrect for both of these occurrences, as they all have different armor with
different defenses and statuses. To fix this problem: as soon as you get one of
Benjamin's companions to join him, save the game right then and there; save
game wise, of course. Then, look at the status screen to note the errors. Next,
look at the armor screen to see what they are very strong against. After that,
reset the game to correct these two problems. As soon as the game returns to
your saved game, all the incorrect information on the status screen and with
those companions individually will be fixed.
Bone Dungeon: When you enter the Bone Dungeon
you can get past the moving sand without having to fight a lot of enemies.
Note: It is better to fight enemies than to find a way around them. To do this,
go to the left of the sand where it does not move. Hold Up then jump and move
to the left again. Keep doing this until you get to the top. You now only have
to fight one enemy.

to get all of Strago's lores
To get all of the
lores, go to Kefka's tower and fight DARK FORCE. Use life three on all of your
party members. Also take Strago with you because he has to learn the lores. The
Dark Force will use all of the lore attacks that Strago needs to know. (You
will have to wait awhile to get the dark force to use Quassar)
best place for exp.
Once you are in the
Ruined World and have an airship go north of the velt. There will be a forest
in the rough shape of a head and a mountain just east of it. Gau's father lives
west of it, if that helps. Now, you must have only one person in your group and
put on "vanish." Just fight around and bathe in all the exp.
Sabin's Final Blitz?
To get Sabin's
final blitz, Bum Rush, you must be in the Ruined World. Fly north to Narshe,
the cave town, and look on that continent for four trees shaped in a cross.
Land and walk into the trees. You will meet Sabin's trainer and he will teach
him the final blitz.
In the thief town,
Zozo, go to the building where you have to set the clock. Then enter: 6, 10, 50
this will enable you to open the secret passage and get Edgar's new tool.
The exp. doubles
exp. you recieve in a battle. You must be in the ruined world. Enter Darel's
Tomb (where the air ship is). Starting from the enterance walk down as far as
you can without entering the door, go left, down, and right through the door to
the basement. Search the right wall until you find a wall that you can walk
right through, enter and get the exp. egg in the treasure chest.
To get Mog's best
dance, Water Rondo, you need to get him in your party in the World of Balance.
To do this, you must go to Narshe, and into the house with the locked treasure
chests. Lone Wolf will be there, ONLY if you let him escape earlier. He'll run
away with the treasure. Follow him. At the top of the snowfields, Lone Wolf
will hold Mog hostage. You must choose between Mog and a Golden Hairpin. You
can get the Hairpin later in the game, and this is the only time you can get
Mog to learn the Water Rondo. Once you learn it, head over to Nikeah in your
airship. There is a chocobo stable around, rent one, and follow the path to
Mobliz, and CrescentMountain. Jump in the current, and you'll be
delivered to your airship.
General Leo Back
Go to the forest east
of Gau's father's house and kill 4000 dragons and then a gold dragon will
appear (like the one in kefka's tower) and when you kill it, it should give you
reserect, it may take 2 or three tries (the dragon will still be there). After
you get reserect go to leo's grave and use it and he will join your party.

Learning spells: Once the airship is
obtained from Setzer,in the World Of Balance, go to a small triangular island
and start a fight. Eventually a invisible creature called Intangir will be
encountered. Cast Doom on the Intangir and he will use his final meateo attack
on a single character, taking about 900-1200 HP. After he is defeated, 10 esper
points will be awarded. Which is a good way to learn spells for your
Healing with Doom: You must have the Relic
Ring to do this trick. Have one of your party members equip the Relic Ring.
When you cast the Doom on the person wearing the Relic Ring, it will heal your
entire party to full health. This trick is especially useful when you are
fighting a Boss and are running low on HP.
Best spell: The best spell is Vanish and
Doom. If you use Vanish then Doom on 95% or more of the monsters, they will
perish. Note: This is the easiest way to kill Kefka at the end of the game.
Random hat replacement: Un-equip the hat of the
character you like the most. Sell all other hats you have. Then, go to the
hatless character's equipment screen and select "Optimum". Sometimes
a random item (usually a Genji Glove) will be equipped as a hat, and boosts
defense up to 255.
Getting another Genji Glove: You can get another Genji Glove
during your stay at Banon's Hideout. When Terra talks to Banon alone, he will
ask you to be their hope, light, etc. Answer "No". Return outside and
he will ask you again. Answer "No" again. You will do this three
times, and Terra will come inside and ask how anybody could depend on her. Then
a wounded soldier will come in. When you leave, instead of getting the
gauntlet, you will receive the Genji Glove.
Unlimited Genji Gloves: Place Locke in the party
and go to the floating continent in the World Of Balance. Note: The floating
continent can only be reached in the World Of Balance after taking Terra to the
sealed cave, and before the world changes. Steal from the dragon monster that
appears. Most of time, only a potion will be obtained, but eventually a Genji
Glove will be taken. Repeat this process to collect as many Genji Gloves as
Unlimited Muscle Belts: Muscle Belts will double
your maximum HP. Go to ZoZo mountain and the giant green monster that is
similar to the monster was first fought when you arrived in ZoZo. It resembles
an overgrown humans. Have Locke in your party with the Thief Glove relic
equipped and can steal a Muscle Belt from it. Note: This takes some time, as
most of the time you will only steal potions.
Unlimited Exp. Eggs: Go to the small island in
the World Of Ruin above the town where you get Strago and Relm. Use the
Ragnarock Esper on a monster called Harpy to turn it into an exp. Egg.
In the World Of
Ruin, go to Narshe with Locke and Edgar included in your party. Go to the
weapon shop and talk to the old man. He will ask if you want the Ragnarok Sword
or Esper. Choose the Esper and equip it. Then, fly to Eboshi Rock (on the small
island north of Thamasa where you get Strago and Relm). Do not go into the
cave. Instead, walk around until you fight a monster called Harpy. Have Edgar
use the Noise Blaster on Harpy to confuse it, making it vulnerable to any fatal
attack. Then, have whoever is equipped with the Ragnarok Esper use it on the
Harpy. The message "Metamorphosis Better Off Exp. Egg" will appear,
then the Harpy will die. Check your inventory and the Exp. Egg should be there.
Note: If you do not use the Noise Blaster, the Ragnarok Esper will miss Harpy
most of the time.
Unlimited Magicite: Go to the Coliseum, then
bet a Phoenix Down. You will have to fight a Cactuar. Make sure you equip
yourself with Atma Weapon and you will defeat it easily. Everytime you win, you
get a Magicite. Repeat the process to get as many as needed.
Cheap Saraphim Magicite: If you do not buy Saraphim
in Tzen before the world changes, you can buy it afterwards from the same man
for only 10 gil.
Increase speed with Odin Magicite: After acquiring the Odin
Magicite, instead of immediately transforming it into Raiden, keep it with you
as is. Not only will you be able to learn Quick without having to kill all the
dragons, but the character equipped with Odin will receive +1 Speed every time
he or she levels up.
Unlimited items: Go to the island were you
fight The Zone Eater. Allow it engulf the entire party. Go to the end of the
cave to find a character named Gogo. He has a move called Mimic. He will copy
anything used before him. You can also give him any other command besides
Finding the Magicite Palidor: In the World Of Ruin, get
off the island you start out on. Find Sabin, Edgar, and Setzer. Then, fly the
airship to the abandoned island you started out on. Go to the beach, and you
should find the Magicite Palidor washed up on shore.
Moogle Charm: To get the Moogle Charm,
you must be in the Second
World. Go to
Narshe and enter deep into the caves where the Moogles used to live at the
start of the game. There will only be one remaining. Talk to him and he will
join your party. Press A where he was previously standing to get the Moogle
Charm. The Moogle Charm will prevent random battles.
Ultima Spell: Get the Cursed Shield and
the Rangnarok Sword (not the Esper). Break the spell on the Cursed Shield to
learn the Ultima spell faster than by the Esper. Then, go to the coliseum and
bet Ragnarok Sword. You will get a new sword. Try it out, and if it is not
stronger go back and bet it. Do this repeatedly and you will eventually get a
sword stronger than the Atma weapon.
Alternate Chainsaw: If you discarded or sold
your Chainsaw, you can get another one. Go to Kefka's Tower in the World Of
Ruin and fight a Dueller (can be found in room with glass tubes). Keep stealing
from it, and you may get a Chainsaw.
Alternate Air Anchor: To get a second Air Anchor,
you can initiate a system of trades in the Dragon's Neck Coliseum as follows.
Tabby Suit for a Chocobo Suit. Chocobo Suit for a Moogle Suit. Moogle Suit for
a Nutkin Suit. Nutkin Suit for a Air Anchor.
Unlimited Tintinabars: You must be in the World Of
Ruin have the Ragnarock Esper. Go to ZoZo mountain and use Ragnarock Esper on a
monster called Spec-tor to get a Tintabar.
Get another Tintinabar: Another Tintinabar can be
obtained in the world of Balance. Once getting the Airship and at least 3000 GP
to spare, fly to Mobliz and read the letter from Lola to the soldier. Then,
send one for him to Maranda. Fly there and talk to Lola. Fly back to Mobliz,
stay at the inn, and another letter should arrive. Continue to do this,
eventually send a letter, a record, some tonic, another letter, and a Book.
After sending the book, sleep in the inn one more time, then talk to the
soldier. He will thank you for sending all the items in his name and give your
character another Tintinabar.
Mithril Shield and Pike: When you are protecting
Terra with Locke and the Moogles, switch to the party with Mog in it. Get in
your inventory screen and select "Equip" with Mog. He is wearing a
Mithril Shield and a Mithril Pike. Unequip them, and at the end of the battles
Locke and Terra will have the shield and pike with them.
Getting Ragnarok Sword and Esper: In order to get the
Ragnarok Sword and the Esper, simply choose the Esper when the man in Narshe in
the World Of Ruin asks you. Then, if you want to beat Kefka easily, have Locke
in you party when fight Kefka after going through his temple. When he makes you
fight the three sub-Bosses after you talk with him, have Locke steal from the
giant head on the third sub-Boss to get the Ragnarok Sword. This is a good way
to teach your characters Ultima, and to easily beat Kefka -- have Shadow throw
the Ragnarok Sword at Kefka in the final battle.
Getting Edgar's Bio Blaster and Noise Blaster in FigaroCastle cheaply: After talking to Edgar with
Locke in the beginning, go to the room with the Chancellor. Then go to the
right (on the wall), then go south until the wall moves over more to the right.
Move over more to the right (when the wall expands) and go north through a
door. Talk to a man at that location to buy cheap Bio and Noise Blasters. The
same thing can be done on the left side to find cheap items.
Getting Edgar's Drill and Flash: When you get Edgar in the
world of ruins, go to FigaroCastle. Keep moving north until reaching the room
with the Chancellor. When first entering the room, go three steps north, then
all the way to the right. Go north again to arrive at a door. Enter and talk to
the man. After a a short conversation, Edgar's drill, flash, and one other tool
can be bought.
Getting Edgar's Chainsaw: Place Edgar in the party
and enter the World Of Balance when looking for Terra in Zozo. Move all the way
to the left and up to a man who says "This town is too dangerous".
Enter the nearby door approach the clock. Enter the time as 6:10:50. The wall will move, allowing access to
Edgar's most powerful tool, the chainsaw.
Getting Edgar's Air Anchor: Go to the KefkaTower in the World Of Ruins. Climb to the very
top, defeat the Magimaster and get the gem box. Get down (an easy way is to
give MOG the Moogle Charm relic which prevents
random battles) and leave the tower. Save the game, then re-enter the tower.
Walk inside, then go up the stairs. Enter the first door and move to the right
of the chest. Press A, then leave and go down one flight of stairs to the door
which just was enabled beside the chest. Edgar's Air Anchor tool is found at
Getting the Excalibur sword: Wait for the Boss
"Goddess" to drop this sword.
Getting the Illumina sword: To get the Illumina sword,
bet the Ragnarok sword in the Coliseum and win the battle.
Getting Mog earlier: To get Mog in the original
world (before the events of the Floating Continent play out), complete the raid
on the Magitek Research Facility and return to Terra in Zozo. After this, go to
Narshe and talk to the elder. He will ask Terra to open the gate to the land of
the Espers. Before you leave Narshe, go to the treasure house in the east of
the city, by the house you woke up in after your magitek Armor was destroyed by
the Esper. A man named the Lone Wolf will be there, and has taken the item in
the locked chest. Chase him through the mines and you will eventually end up by
the cliff near where you fought Kefka's army, and where Terra flew off. He will
now have Mog hostage. Wait a little while and Mog will break free. He and Lone
Wolf will fall on opposite sides of the cliff. Talk to Lone Wolf and you will
receive the item, a gold hairpin that halves MP use; or talk to Mog and he will
join your party. You can still get Mog in the MoogleCave in the World Of Ruin if you took the
hairpin. This is also where Mog rejoins your party in the World Of Ruin.
Getting Mog's Water Dance: The only chance to get
Mog's Water Dance is to get him before the world changes. Have him fight a
battle in either the river where you first fight Ultros or the under water
trench that Sabin, Cyan, and Gau take in CrescentMountain (located to the south of the Veldt). CrescentMountain is faster, because after arriving at the
port town you can ride a Chocobo to the waterfall (the landslide is now clear).
Then, cross the Veldt to the airship. The river requires you to go through Mt.Kolt.
Getting Sabin's Bum Rush: Have Sabin in your party
and take off in the airship in the World Of Ruin. Go near the Narshe, and
search for five trees forming a plus sign like this:
Land nearby and
walk into the middle tree to find Sabin's old sensei (who he thought was dead).
The teacher will teach Sabin the Bum Rush, an extremely strong, single person
It is rather
difficult to individually press the buttons for attacks such as the Bum Rush.
Instead of pressing them individually, press Down at the starting point and
just move your finger for the move combo without lifting it. This allows you to
get diagonal directions for the moves without making a mistake.
Getting Shadow in the World of Ruin: When escaping the floating
continent in the World of Balance, you have to go to the east side of the
island. You will see the airship and will be prompted to "Jump" or
"Wait". Select "Wait", then select "Wait for
Shadow" a second time with five seconds left. Shadow will appear and you
will automatically leave the island. You can also find him in the World of Ruin
in the Cave in the Veldt. You them have to go to the Coliseum and bet the
Striker to get him to join your party permanently.
If you get Shadow
back in the World Of Ruin, put him into your party and go to an inn.
Eventually, Shadow will have a dream about his past. There are four different
dreams, explaining how he became an assassin.
After you get the
second airship, fly to the middle of the Veldt to the Cave on the Veldt (first
go to the area of trees where Dunkin will teach you Bum Rush). When you go in,
have Edgar, Gau, Leo, and Sabin with you. Make sure you save the game -- you
will have to fight two Super Behomoths in order to save Shadow. Once you are in
Relms town, leave and go to the Coliseum. Bet for the Slicer (you should have
it after saving Shadow) and you will fight Shadow. He will join your team after
you defeat him.
Keeping Shadow longer: Shadow will normally run
away from your party immediately before you face Dadaluma in Zozo (World Of
Balance) . You can stop him from leaving by killing him (with your characters
or monsters) just before you jump to Dadaluma's building. Do not revive him
until during your fight with Dadaluma. He will stay for the fight and entire
Terra scene, then leave you when the team decides to head to Vector.
Getting the Offering Relic: In the world of Ruin, after
you find Sabin, Edward, Setzer, and get the new Airship, return to FigaroCastle (the castle you just fought the Tentacles
to Re surface.) Go to the man who operates the Engine to travel to South Figaro. Talk to him and select "Go to South Figaro". Wait a few seconds. About a quarter
of the way through, you will be back to the man and he'll say "There's
something odd about this Stratum... It's as if we've bumped into
something..". Select "Stop And Explore". Go back up the stairs
you came through, then down the ones opposite of the entry room, into the
Prison. Enter the far right cell, and through the back. Make your way through
the cave and find the UndergroundCastle. If this is the first time you have been
here, a short intermission sequence will explain that it was a castle destroyed
in the war of Magi. Approach the entry stairs, but do not go up. Instead, go to
the left a few steps, then up through either of the two arches. There should be
one chest. Heal and open it. It will be a Monster-In-A-Box. When you defeat it,
you will receive the Offering Relic. This Relic Allows you to strike multiple
enemies four times. If you want to do massive damage, equip this Relic combined
with the Genji Glove, for eight strikes per Fight command.
Getting the Paladin Shield: Get the Cursed Shield from
the man in the relic shop in Narshe. Equip the Cursed Shield and a Ribbon on
Locke (so the effects of the Cursed Shield are negated). Fight 255 battles with
Locke in your party. After the 255th battle, a message stating the Cursed
Shield has transformed will appear. The Curse Shield is now the Paladin Shield
and will boost all of your normal and magic defenses. Note: When trying to get
the shield, fight the enemies on the island where you first started in the World
Getting the Rename card: Go to the island on Upeerof
Veld's Island. Go to the forest and fight with the
Brontosaur and get the Cat Hood. Go to the coliseum. Bet the Cat Hood and win
???????????? (as appears in the game). Bet the Relic and fight against Hoover to win the Rename Card.
Getting the Marvel Shoes: There is an extremely
helpful relic called the Marvel Shoes. To obtain them, bet an Elixir at the
Coliseum. If you win that battle, you will get a Rename Card. Bet the Rename Card
and win the fight to obtain the Marvel Shoes. The Marvel Shoes cast Safe,
Haste, Shell, Float, and Regen on your character at the start of a battle.
Getting the Economizer: Either wait for a
Brachosaur to drop one or bet the Gem box at the Coliseum. The Economizer cuts
every spell used to only consume 1 MP.
Get a Thunder Rod early in the game: When you go through the
caves with Terra the first time (after losing your Magi-Tek Armor while
communicating with the Esper), there will be a chest with a Fenix Down in it.
Instead of taking it, leave and continue. Later, when Locke and Celes are
fleeing through those same tunnels, go to the chest that was skipped to receive
a Thunder Rod instead of the Fenix Down. Use it as an item to cast Bolt 2.
Getting Celes: Go to the house besides the
Bird Shop, then go upstairs to the room with the draft. Go behind the bookshelf
and keep moving left. You will see stairs that go down. Walk down to find three
bookshelves. Go to the right until you reach a wall. Answer "Yes" to
the question, then go down and press A when you get to the first door. You will
then see Celes.
Getting: Sraphim: After the floating
continent rises in the World of Balance, go to Albrook. There will be a an old
man that you should talk to. He will tell you that someone tried to sell him a
glowing stone and that person is now at Tzen. After talking to the man, go to
Tzen. In the far right group of trees, there will be a hidden person, walking
around. Talk to him and he will say some things about the Espers and the
empire. Afterwards, he will ask you if you want to buy the glowing stone he is
selling for 3,000 GP. The glowing stone is an Esper named Sraphim. Buy it. It
is very valuable to your team because it has some new abilities to learn and
will help you throughout your journey.
Getting Raiden: After getting the Odin
Esper in the underground castle (Take the Figaro Castle Trip after getting the
second airship stop and explore. Go upstairs and down the other set. Enter the
open prison cell and go through the cave.), go to the right throne. Walk down
five steps and press A. Go into the room to the right and go down the stairs.
Kill the dragon that is found there with the Vanish, Doom technique. Go up to
the statue of Celes and press A. The message "Odin has gained a level
revived Raiden" will appear. Raiden teaches Quick, which has the same
effect as the Gem Box (lets you to cast two magic spells a turn).
Getting Ribbon: The Ribbon is a treasure in
the PhoenixCave. You need the Ribbon to negate the effects
of the Cursed shield when using it in battle.
Ghost on Doom Train: On the Doom Train, go to
the right at the beginning where you get on. There will be a ghost floating
around. Talk to him. Sabin will say "Looks like he wants to come with
us", and the options "Sure" and "No Way" will appear.
Choose "Sure" and you will get ???? in your party, He can use Posses.
It kills him, but the enemy also dies. You can then return to where you first
found him and get him again.
Easy Air Blade: Press Up(2), Left(2),
Easy experience: Save the game in the World
Of Ruin while you have only Celes. Then continue without saving until you are
able to fight the dinosaurs. Level only Celes up to level 99 then die. You
should be left where you saved with just Celes at level 99. From here all
characters you meet will be at level 99.
In the World of
Balance, take Celes to the cave near Thasama. Cast Vanish on her and she will
now be invincible to the monsters inside the cave. You then can kill the
Adamanchts with only magic (physical attacks result in being sneezed away).
Equip Double Earrings for stronger magic. When you are low on MP take your
airship to Thasama for a 1 GP inn. Repeat the process until Celes is at level
99. Then, all the other members will be at 99 as well in the World of Ruin.
Defeating Kefka easily: When facing Kefka, throw
the Ragnarok sword (or perhaps the Illumina sword or Atma weapon). A "too
much to count" message will appear at the bottom of the screen and Kefka
will automatically die.
At the last battle
with Kefka, make sure you have Shadow in your party. During the battle with
Kefka, make sure he stays alive long enough to throw the Atma Weapon. When he
throws the Atma Weapon at Kefka, it will instantly kill him. This is the
easiest way to defeat the last Boss.
Defeating the Magi Master: Use the following trick to
defeat the Magi Master at the top of Kefka's tower easily. Equip everyone in
your party with a Wall Ring and just stand there. His elemental makeup does not
change unless you attack him. His spells will just bounce off your party and
zap him well. If your party members do not have enough HP to survive his final
Ultima attack (about 7,000 HP), then cast Life3 on your party.
When you fight the
Magi Master atop Kefka's tower, use Berserk on him so he does not use any magic
or use Wall Change. Then, use Rasp and Osmose to take away all of his MP so he
cannot use Ultima. When all his MP is depleted, he will die. Note: This
requires a very long time.
In The World Of
Ruin, take the four characters with the highest magic power and place them in
your party. Relm, Terra, and Celes as three of the four are recommended, as
they have the highest magic power. The Magi Master will cast Ultima just before
he dies and it will do about 5,000 to 7,000 damage; make sure you have at least
one person with enough HP to survive the end of the battle. Make sure you equip
all four members of your party with the Wall Ring relic. This will cast a
permanent Reflect on them, bouncing away most magic attacks thrown at you.
Begin to climb the tower. This should be easy with the Wall Ring relic. Once
you get to the top and get the Gem Box, do not bother equipping it, as you will
not need it for the battle. The Gem Box changes Magic into XMagic which enables
you to cast two magic spells instead of one. At the beginning of the battle do
not command any of your people to attack. Just wait there because the Magi
Master will continuously attempt to attack with attacks like Bolt, Ice, and
Fire 3 (and sometimes Doom, Bio and other spells). However, it will all bounce
off of you and hit him. He will eventually kill himself and you will not have
to do anything except stand there and wait.
Another Atma Weapon: It is possible to get
another Atma Weapon during the final set of battles. When battling the warrior
with a woman's head above and behind him (just before god Kefka), steal from
the woman's head. You should now be able to equip another Atma Weapon to a
Defeating Atma Weapon: The easiest way to kill
Atma Weapon on the Floating Continent is to use Vanish followed by Doom. It is
an instant kill, and you will get all the experience and gil.
Boss battle strategy: When fighting any tough
Bosses or dragons, cast "Vanish" followed by "Doom" while
still invisible. If done correctly, the Boss will automatically die. Note: Some
Bosses will counterattack before dying.
An easy way to kill
most bosses, including all the dragons, is done with this simple trick. First
you have to cast Vanish on your enemy, then cast Doom or X-Zone. If you do not
have Doom or X-Zone, use Mog's Dusk Requiem Dance until he uses Snare.
enemies that you cannot Vanish and Doom on, just use Reflect followed by Vanish
on yourself. The Vanish will protect you from power attacks and Reflect will
protect you from magic attacks. Note: You must use Reflect first -- Vanish will
not get reflected.
Defeating Doomgaze: Some a character a Gembox,
use X-Magic, Fire 3 twice, then use Bumrush. Cure if needed, otherwise use Fire
3. Repeat this every time you see him (9999 a hit). He can be defeated after
five to ten turns.
Finding Gogo: To find Gogo, go to TriangleIsland in the northeast of the map. Keep fighting
until reaching the Zone Eater. Allow him to suck the party in to enter a cave.
Go through the cave to find Gogo.
Give Gogo any commands: Go to Gogo's status screen.
Look at his commands. You will see Mimic and three empty slots below it. Choose
one of the empty slots and a list of all of the commands from the other
characters you have will appear. Choose the one you want, then do the same with
the other two slots. For example, you can have Mimic, Blitz, Tools, and
Swordtech all at the same time, if desired.
StragoDC: StragoDC is the one of the most helpful people in the game. If
you manage to find the Heal Rod, you can hit you own party members and heal
them. It is as effective as a Cure 2 spell, or better. As Strago gets stronger,
so does the attack power, and it will heal more. This is useful in the fights
against Atma Weapon, final form Kefka, and all other Bosses before him. The
Heal Rod is effective, but do not attack monsters with it. Also, depending on
Strago's level, the rod can heal from 300 to 2,000.
Finding Umaro: To find Umaro, go to where
Mog was saved. The frozen Esper will be at that location. Win the battle and a
hole will open. Jump down the hole and work through the cave. After reaching
the end, a Skull Statue will be found. Examine it and take the Terrato
Magicite. Umaro will appear and begin a battle. Defeat him and he will join the
Stronger Umaro: Note: A lot of money is
required for this trick. Buy 99 Green Cherries. During a battle in the World Of
Ruin, have Umaro in your party. Use some Green Cherries on Umaro and he will
become stronger without having to level up.
Better items: In the caves of Narshe and
Figaro (the one where Locke and Celes fight Tunnel Armor and connects FigaroCastle to FigaroVillage), instead of grabbing the items in the
chests when you first go through the area, come back later. For example, after
the world has changed or earlier. They will have different items that are
better than the originals.
Defeating the Magi Tower Boss: After defeating the Atma
Weapon the first time, cast Life 3 on everyone, have them all holding a Wall
Ring as one of their relics (helps through the entire level), and have someone
Berserk the Boss. After that he will only use regular attacks and will not
change his weakness. Once defeated, he will use Ultima, the most powerful magic
attack in the entire game, and it will most likely kill you.
Defeating Phantom Train: To defeat the Phantom
Train, simply use a Phoenix Down on it. If it works, he should flash and
explode like any other Boss.
High number of EXP and MP per battle: Go to the desert south of
Maranda in the World of Ruin and fight Cactrots and Hovers on the west
"island". Cactrot is not worth any EXP, but gives 20 MP and 10,000
GP. Hoover is worth up to 7000 EXP, 5 MP and 10,000
GP. Note: You can kill Hovers easily without its Sand Storm attack by casting
Doom unit it dies.
When you have your
airship and Doom in the World of Balance, go to TriangleIsland. This is where you fight the Zone-Eater in
the World of Ruin. And walk around until you battle a Behemoth. It should be
invisible. Cast Doom instantly; if not, you will have a tough battle and get
killed. After defeating it, most of the time you will get over 10,000 EXP, but
at times get up to 999,999 EXP. Try going to the airship and put one person in
your party. Make sure he has Doom, and fight Behemoth.
Easy MP: In the World Of Ruin, go to
Keftka's treasure tower that you can only cast magic in and not fight. Equip
all your party members with Wall Rings and Gold Hairpins. Go to the room at the
top of the tower where you got the Gem Box. Keep getting into battles in there.
You will get between 5 to 9 MP per battle. A good number of the battles will be
against Magic Urns that will heal you instead of hurt you. When you fight ''lvl
50 Magics", cast Life on them and they will die. When you fight "lvl
90 Magics" they also have Reflect on them. Cast Ultima on him or Fire3 on
yourself for easy points. It is recommended that you be above level 30.
Large damage: Get two Atma weapons. Equip
the Genji Glove and Offering Relic, and then the two Atma weapons. The
character that is equipped with this set up will do 9,999 damage eight times.
Note: Your character must be at level 99 for this trick to work.
Easy levels: Note: This trick requires a
controller with a turbo feature. After boarding the raft at the Returners
hideout, surf along until reaching the first save point. Go into the
"Config" screen from the menu and select "Memory". Set
Edgar to "AutoCrossbow", Banon to "Health", and the other
two to "Attack". Enable the turbo feature and keep it on for a few
hours. In a few hours you should be at level 30-35. It takes awhile to get to
level 99, but it is the easiest way at that point in the game.
Stat bonus when leveling up: Have the character equipped
with a Hyper Wrist and an Esper that bestows +2 to Vigor every time a level is
gained. The permanent gain will actually be +3. This trick seems to work for
Early experience: Fight all the battles you
can at the start of the game to gain experience for the tougher battles that
happen later. You can save, then use a tent. If you die and the game ends, you
will start out with the same experience you had previously, plus you can aso
use the tent again. Do not try to set any records by trying to die the least
amount of times. It will only make things harder though the game.
Yet another way to
gain more experience points early is in the World of Balance. Ignore almost all
of the "Supporting Actors" (Vicks and Wedge, The Moogles, and The
Phantom Train Friendly Ghosts). It is highly recommended, however, that you do
not do this trick with Banon or General Leo. The less characters that you have
in your party, the more experience points that those characters will then
receive from battles. With Vicks and Wedge, kill them off yourself at the
beginning of the game. Terra will then receive all of those experience points
for the first few battles herself, since Vicks and Wedge are gone by the
Tritoch Esper. With the Moogles, first unequip Mog of his Mythril Shield and
Mythril Pike, then have he and his group enter the first battle. Then, kill his
companions and have him end that battle himself. Mog will then receive all of
those experience points for that battle himself and his first dance. Locke and
his group should take on the rest of those next few battles. First, kill off
his companions in his group and he will then receive all of those experience
points for those next few battles. We never again get to battle with the rest
of those Moogles anyway. Completely ignore that other extra fighting group of
Moogles there. Do not bother picking up any of those Phantom Train Friendly Ghosts,
allowing Sabin, Cyan, and/or Shadow to receive all of those experience points
for those next few battles themselves. Those ghosts just go back into the train
when your party gets close to the front of that train.
Getting high spell levels: First, you must be in the
World Of Ruin and have the airship. Take the desired character with a party of
three others to the small desert that is near Maranda and the Colosseum. Fight
in the desert to engage Cactrots -- use nearly any magic to kill them easily and
gain 10 Magic Points. Using the Tritoch Esper, allow the desired character to
learn Fire 3. Once they have, fly the airship to the island where DomaCastle is located. In the grassy areas on that
island you encounter will groups of four TumbleWeeds. Equip the desired
character with the two EXP Eggs you should have found prior and engage the
TumbleWeeds. Use Fire 3 on all of them to kill them in one move and receive an
absurd amount of experience (about 65,530 per fight). You will easily gain one
or two levels per fight until you are past level 70, and you can continue this
easily. A crucial stat-building element is to make sure that you equip the
character with an Esper that boosts a stat that you want them to gain per
level, such as Str +2 per level. At Level 99, you will have a ridiculously
strong character. You can continue this method with every character, easily
allowing them to achieve the highest levels. You can continue to fight the
Cactrots as well to learn spells at an exceedingly rapid rate. With the level
99 Character with all of the strength and damage boosts, who can wield swords
effectively, such as Celes, give her the Offering, Genji Glove, an Atma Weapon,
and Excalibur. She will strike eight times, doing 9,999 each time. If you are
frivolous enough you can try to steal an additional Atma Weapon from the female
target on the third tier of the Final Battle and equip it before fighting
Kefka. As Kefka has only 65,000 HP, by using the method above you can defeat
him in a single "Fight" command. On the same note, you can also be
exceedingly cheap by leveling up a character such as Terra, and giving her an
Esper that offers Mag. Pwr. boosts per every level. Find an Economizer from the
Brachiosaurs in the forest alongside the Crazy Guy's house. Equip Terra with
the Economizer and Gembox and make sure she knows the spells Ultima and Quick.
When fighting any enemy, have her cast Quick on herself, then Ultima; then
Ultima twice more. Then on her move following immediately afterwards, use Quick
and Ultima again. By using this method you can give Terra infinite moves to
cast the most damaging spell in the game at only 1 MP.
Quick MP: After getting the airship,
go to TriangleIsland and battle a creature called Intangir. Have
Gau in your party and make sure he has learned Rhodox in the Veldt. Fight
Intangir and use Gau's Rage. Use Rhodox, he will use Snare, and Intangir will
not attack. If you have Mog he can do the same thing if he has learned Dusk
After the Espers
hit Vector and the Airship regroup, go back to the EsperCave and gain your level to 99. It will help you
learn your magic skills faster.
More prizes from Emperor Geshtal: When your first airship is
downed for the first time and you have to go to Vector to feast with Emperor
Geshtal, he will ask you to talk to as many people as possible. Do this, and
when you begin to feast again, he will ask you some questions which require you
to choose from three possible answers. For example, Geshtal will ask you to
make a toast to someone: The Empire, the Returners (the group Locke
represents), or no one. The obvious choice would be Returners, but if you make
him happy by selecting The Empire, as well as giving him answers that make him
happy with all the other questions, you will get more prizes. This is
especially true for when he asks you to go to Albrook with him. Agree with him
the first time to get more prizes, which a guard will give you later. The
prizes are useful.
Elixirs: Press A in front of a
clock. About 90% of the time, you will find an Elixir.
After talking to
enough soldiers in Vector, go to Imperial Base and enter the house. In the
basement, go to the very bottom right. There will be another chest with an
Elixir at this location.
In the World of
Ruin, after you get the airship and Locke, return to the very first island that
you started from. Steal from monsters called "Poppers." They will
always give you Elixirs.
Desperation attack: To use a desperation
attack, make sure your character is kneeling or almost dead as well has having
a status change. Chose to attack on your next turn and the character should use
their desperation attack.
Two Shadows on the Floating Continent: As soon as you arrive to
the Floating Continent, ignore Shadow and continue to move ahead find the
statues. Fight and defeat Atma Weapon. Make your way back to the beginning
where Shadow should still lying down. Do not touch the save point at the
beginning of the island, because Shadow will disappear. Talk to Shadow and he
will join you. Return back to the statues. After Kefka kills the Emperor and
hits Celes, another Shadow will appear and traps Kefka in the statues while
your party, including the first Shadow, will still be there wounded. Note: This
trick works best when Shadow is the leader of the party.
Teleportation star at end of PhoenixCave: In the World of Ruin, at
the end of the PhoenixCave is a red star to the right of the screen
while you are talking to Locke. This star is just a teleport.
Mine cart ride in Vector: Choosing the correct lead
character for the party in this game usually results in unexpected different
outcomes with the events in this game. For example, choosing from Sabin, Cyan,
Shadow, and/or the Ghosts to sit at the dining car's meal table on the Phantom
Train will result in different reactions. If you choose Sabin to lead the
party, instead of Edgar or Locke, before talking to Cid there and him pushing
your party into the mine cart to escape, you will then fight both types of Mag
Roaders along that ride instead of just the main type. This is most useful if
you actually intend to get all of the Rages in this game for Gau.
Double experience with the Experience Egg: Trade a Tintabar at the
Coliseum. If you do not have one then you will have to go through the cycle to
obtain one. (Bet an Elixir to get a Rename Card. Bet the Rename Card to get the
Marvel Shoes. Then bet the Marvel Shoes and you should get a Tintabar. If you
do not get the Tintabar after the Marvel Shoes then just keep betting the item
you get until you get the Tintabar) After trading the Tintabar, you will get
the Experience Egg. The Experience Egg will double the experience the wearer
earns and allows for quick level ups.
Nearly invincible equip combination: Find any equip combo that
raises a characters Magic Block % to over 100%. The best combo is to use the
Illumina Sword, Bard's Hat, Force Armor, Paladin Shield, and any relics to
increase Magic Block %. Get the Illumina by getting the Ragnarok sword instead
of the Esper from the man in Narshe in the World Of Ruin. Then, bet the
Ragnarok at the Coliseum. Note: Save the game beforehand, as it is a tough
battle. Get the Paladin Shield by equipping the Cursed Shield and fighting 255
battles. This is easier if you equip the Ribbon to neutralize the effects of
the Cursed Shield. Once the % is raised over 100%, any other things to boost
the percentage has no additional effect. Equip whatever is desired rather than
worrying about Magic Block %. Edgar is a good choice for this, but you can use
whoever desired. Once raised over 100%, the character will block nearly every
attack except for unfocused magic attacks (for example, Ultima). This makes him
or her one of the strongest characters in the game and very useful for Coliseum
Good experience area: To get some good
experience, head to the top east continent. There is a stretch of mountains iin
the eastern part . Directly to the west of that is a batch of trees. You will
fight one or two T-Rex monsters there. They will result good experience, but
watch out for their Meteor spell. The best way to defeat them is to cast Vanish
followed by X-Zone. You will also fight other monsters that resembles long
necked dinosaurs. Try to steal from them to get a good item. They are also
difficult to defeat. Equip the Experience Egg on each of your party members to
allow them to obtain many experience points.
Hidden intermission sequence: In the World of Balance,
immediately after getting Sabin to join your party for the first time and after
you have left Mt.Kolts, go right into the Returners Hideout and
talk to the guard standing directly in your way. As soon as he and your party
have really stopped moving there, go directly back to that exit of Mt.Kolts. Upon reentering that area, you will
immediately notice an Imperial soldier standing next to one of those Magitek
armor suits. Once you talk to him there, he will notice that you are actually
Returners. He will jump into the Magitek armor suit and chase you in that armor
out of that area, back towards the Returners Hideout. This is basically an
extra scene. You then can note two other things about this intermission
sequence. First, that you definitely cannot get back through Mt.Kolts, back to South Figaro at all now; and second, that what is
indicated later in the Returners Hideout about the Empire finding out about
them there was obviously, true.
Save item and magic use at the Coliseum: Choose Gogo and equip him
with the Genji Glove and Offering. Set all his commands to fight. He will
strike eight attacks every turn

Unusual items: Have Relm and Gau in your
party and go to the Veldt. Have Gau leap an enemy and wait for him to come
back. When he reappears, but before he talks, have Relm sketch him. Most of the
time it will miss, but after a while it should cause a glitch. If the game has
not frozen, return into the item and equip menus and to find that your party
will be equipped with items. The items list will also contain have an unusual
list of items, some of which may be up to 255 in number. Caution: This glitch
may scramble your saved games.
Have Realm in your
party in the triangle island where you find GoGo. Fight the ZoneEater and
sketch it. If you happen to see her move the brush but no picture and no miss,
then a picture of Ultros comes out and the game will start glitching. Make sure
to have a Smokebomb when you do this so you can escape. Check in your item list
and you will have Illumina, rows of Dirks and other rare items. You can still
equip it, even If it has zero next to it. Note: This will glitch the game to
the point where it may not be able to be completed.
Non-functioning Leap command: After getting the airship
in the WOB/WOR, try to take GAU alone to the Veldt. The
Leap command must appear, but when you select it, the message "Cannot
Dive" will appear.
The Gambler's Slot: When you re trying to get
777 (Instant Win Battle), the last slot sometimes will skip 7, even if it was
right on target.
Relm comment: When you get to Ultros in CreasentMountain, use the Vanish/Doom tactic on him. Relm
will say she did a great job when you did not even use her.
Psycho Cyan: At the start of battle,
have Cyan perform the "Retort" SwordTech (or SwdTech 2), then have
another party member cast the "Imp" spell on him. Next, kill Cyan by
attacking him with a physical attack in one blow or several magic attacks. This
is to not trigger Retort and cancel the process. After he is wounded, revive
him with a Life spell or Fenix Down. After any character/enemy attacks, Cyan
should automatically and continuously attack all enemies uninterrupted until
they are all dead. Use this process to instantly defeat Bosses and tough
enemies, including Kefka.
Glitched graphics: Have Relm sketch an invisible
Itangir. If she sketches nothing but it does not miss, the game will glitch.
Name remains on screen: When you are fighting a
Whisper or Shawdow Guy, wait until they damage 5 HP. Then, wait until the end
of battle. The Whisper or Shawdow Guys name will still be there.
Half a door: This following trick can be
done in the Normal World or the World Of Ruins. Go to the rich man's house in
south Fargo. Go to the place where the clock moves over
when you wind it up. Go into the door, but not all the way (just open it).
Stand in the doorway. Go to the menu and change the first member of the party,
then get out. You should have half the door over you.
9999 health and 999 MP: Note: This trick requires
the Zsnes emulator. Save your state in any save slot. Then, gain at least one
level for all the characters in your party. After that, save your game by going
to the save star, then load your state. Kill yourself to glitch the game and
get 9999 health and 999 MP.
Walk around dead: Choose any character and go
in to the coliseum. Lose a battle that is not against Chupon. Afterwards, open
the menu and your character will be wounded. However, you will still be able to
walk around. If you go into battle you will be annihilated instantly.
