After collecting all thirteen Minkus, visit Shephard
Beefalo in the palace. He will tell you that he has heard of a
Mother Minku roaming the world. Go to the first area of Meadering
Forest to encounter the Mother Minku. She is a tough opponent.
If you ever get lost in Meandering forest when going
to the Frost Palace, just move left, up twice, right, up twice,
right, up twice, left, and upfour times. It is very easy to get
confused, but it works.

and go to the special figures section. You should now be able

Alternate way to get Lumina sword
When you are on the top of Spiral Tower, there is a
barrier blocking the Lumina sword. The only way to get it is by
stepping on a panel that opens it. Pick up an enemy, then stand
on the panel with him in your hands. Have another enemy hurt you.
You will drop him, and for a short time he will be laying on the
panel, giving you a good chance to get the sword and run.
Yet another way to get Lumina is to stand on the barrier and have
a man approach you. Then, throw Fusion into him as if you were
about to assimilate him. Do not assimilate him. Do not press [Square]
and run to the barrier. The barrier does not open while Fusion
is in him. Wait by the barrier until he is mobile again. It will
give you just enough time to grab Lumina.
Use the Water Scroll on the plant enemies. Most of
the plants in the game will grow into a larger size if watered.
Hold [R1] until the special is all they way up
while having the earth scroll on. Do this while the bucket or
rock is hanging above him, and when he is shooting out of his
mouth. Note: Dodge his shots before you do anything.
Counterattack using Lumina
Go up to any enemy and hold [R1]. When Musashi
is charging up the gauge, he can defend himself from frontal attacks.
When he is defending and someone attacks, you will see the front
of Musashi emit a spark. Immediately after seeing this, quickly
press [Triangle] and counter.
Swing on pipes
Go into the village from the Thirstquencher Empire
Castle. Look around where the mayor's house is located. It has
a spinning chicken on top. Find some water pipes and Musashi will
grab them and start doing backflips. Press [X] to release
from the pipes.
Shrink the dog
In the village, after you defeat the Steamknight talk
to the mayor. He will ask you to rescue the dog. Say "Yes".
Go to the mountains where the dog is located. Find one of the
floating "ghosts". Hold [R1] until the gauge is
full, then rapidly press [Square] until you learn Shrink.
Then, go to the dog and press [Circle]. You will shrink the
dog. Then, step on the dog to flatten it. Note: This will not
kill the dog.
Notice that the two main empires, the Allucaneet and
Thirstquencher Empire, are plays on "all you can eat"
(referring to food) and "thirst quencher" (referring
People that Musashi must save from Bincho Fields mostly have funny
names that refer to foods, such as Acrobat Sausages, Knight Lardwick,
Cook Chiffonade, Princess Fillet, etc. Also, the name Thirstquencher
Empire refers to beverages. The same things also happen on Thirstquencher's
people, such as Capricciola, Soda Fountain, etc.
Glitch: Alchemist Leanman
In the opening sequence the game shows the entire group,
Butler Livers, Princess Fillet, Scribe Shanky, Steward Ribson,
and Alchemist Leanman, Alchemist Leanman is shown trying to help
Fillet with his Alchemy spells to enable a summon for the great
Brave Fencer Musashi. However, how can Alchemist Leanman be there
when he is supposed to be captured?
Glitch: Dog name
After you rescue Leno, talk to Mint. Even though the
town dog is Chappy to everyone, she calls him Leno, not Chappy
as Tim does.
Glitch: Pass through people
Normally you need to stand in front of someone to talk
to them. Press [Square] while behind them to go straight
When you learn the Maid's Dashing Pierce she will apologize
by saying "exuse me" instead of "excuse me".
