Gift of Health
When you get to the area where the second Translator jumps off the ledge to avoid reading the book, place the fate statue by the gate at the end of the hall. Go through the mirror that rewinds time, freeze time, then roll back to where the statue was originally. Open the chest that is now there to get the Gift of Health.
Urn of Gaia
This urn is found in the Isle of Rhodes (the first level). Take the stone block that you push with the golden bird on top, which you need to first break to get some Red Orbs. Push it between Kratos and the gate. While Kratos is on the button to open the gate, kick the block to the other side and then quickly roll under the gate. Then, push the block to the right. You will see three chests on a ledge in the background. Push the block to that area and double jump, then lift yourself up. This urn allows you to gain ten times the number of orbs than normal.
Urn of Olympus
Near the area where you get the Spear of Destiny, take the time slowing statue and push it near the water's edge from where you first came. Try to make it so you can start the time slowing from the other side of the pool. Then, press [R1] across the other pool and roll into the room where the urn is located. This urn gives you unlimited magic.
Urn of Fates
Successfully complete Challenge Of The Titans mode with a "Mortal" or better rank. This urn extends your allotted combo meter time so you can perform higher combos.
Urn of Poseidon
Successfully complete Challenge Of The Titans mode with a "Spartan" or better rank. This Urn allows you to exchange Crono's Rage with Poseidon's Rage.
There is a mini game in the first level, when you fight Colossus. When he hits you into the house do not go under the water yet. Get out and run around to the right side. There are two covers. The first has some orbs and the second has two half-naked women in a pool. You do not have to press any buttons beyond what the mini-game instructs you to do to see what the water fountain does; just simply play the mini game.
Island of the Sisters of Fate: Trap
When you arrive on the island of the Sisters of Fate there is a trap system after the hanging skeletons room. To keep the first door from shut-in on the lower level there is a body near the two red chests. Pick up the body and set it on the trigger to keep the door open.
Using the Golden Fleece
After you get the Golden Fleece from the Cursed Cerberus you can use it to block and reflect enemy attacks by pressing [L1] at the precise moment. However, if you continually press [L1] as fast as possible, you will block and return almost every attack.
Use the following trick during the second part of the fight with Theasus. When he is on the roof and summons creatures to attack you , lead them around until he summons up ice pillars. Then, roll to avoid them but make sure the beasts get caught underneath when the ice pillars are summoned. By doing this they will get hurt and eventually killed.
Easy Cyclops Eyes
After unlocking the Arena Of The Fates, just fight the Cyclops Berserker and take their eyes every time. This is an easy way to get the twenty eyes required unlock the bonus costume.
When the Bowmen (little penguin-like creatures with axes) call the Cyclops with their horns, just kill the Cyclops and not the Bowmen. After you rip out the Cyclops' eye, the Bowmen will call more Cyclops. You can rip more eyes out. Keep this going until you get all twenty eyes.
As soon as you unlock the Arena Of The Fates make three Cyclops and have them respawn and not attack. You can get twenty eyes quickly.
"Now I am become Death..." Message in the Sky + Extra Red Orbs
Hall of Atropos - Upper Level - Do this AFTER the fight with Perseus. You are outside after defeating Perseus. Go back inside through the upper left door. Once in the chamber jump up on the ledge against the back wall but don't go out on the balcony just yet. To the left of the exit, in a dark area where it's pretty difficult to see there is a small star on the ground. Stand on the star and hit [R1] a few times (though once is enough). Now run outside on the balcony. Around the corner to your right and under a window there is a second star on the ground. Stand on the star and hit [R1] a few times (again, once is enough). Now keep going and quickly grapple across to get over the other side of the roof. Run around the corner and go all the way to the pressure switch, stand on the switch to activate the roots walkway. When the roots are nearly fully extended slow time with the Amulet of the Fates and quickly run across. Once on the center platform you will see the third star on the ground by the first tree. Hit [R1] and the camera angle will shift and the following message will appear in the sky: "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." As the message slowly appears in the sky a few thousand red orbs will also be given to you by the tree you are standing next to. The quote in the sky is from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. It was later famously quoted by the American physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer to describe the first nuclear bomb test on July 16, 1945.
