Skip Gilgamesh battle ("Final
"At the end of World 2 when you are infiltrating
X-Death's castle, immediately before you reach X-Death's room
you will encounter a chest with nothing in it. When you leave
this room, Gilgamesh will attack you. However, if you do not open
the chest in this room, you will not have to fight Gilgamesh.
Defeating Gilgame ("Final Fantasy
"First, make sure you have one chararcter that has
learned White Magic Lv5, another that knows Black Magic Lv5, a
third one with Time Magic/Jikuu Lv5, and the last one with Summon/Call
Lv3. You will need to use Cure3 and Golem most of the time to
protect yourselves. Start the battle with Haste2 and Float and
hit Gilgame with Ice3. Make sure to have all of these spells up
and running. Then, make everyone in your party change to Monk
to get a good amount of HP, then put everyone in the back row.
Gilgame is tough and evades easily; there is almost no need to
hit him with a weapon. Before you get to his lair (behind a door
in the cave linking the Big Bridge to the plains of Val), cast
Float on everyone. Then, start picking up Gil until Gilgame gets
you. Starty by casting Haste2 and Golem. Every time you hit Gilgame
with Ice3, this big turtle will counter twice with his Carapace
attack, causing Blind and Poison. However, Golem will take the
damage for you. Normally, Golem will take five hits from Gilgame
before you have to resummon him. Keep casting Ice3 and defending
yourselves with Cure3 and Antidote. You may also cast Blink to
avoid your opponent's attacks and make Golem last slightly longer.
Once Gilgame dies, he will destroy you with a Quake, which will
be fatal to all of you if you are not floating. Winning the battle
will award you 3 ABP and 5000 Gil. If you continue picking up
Gil in the cave after that, Gilgame might appear again.
Defeating Bahamut ("Final Fantasy
"Either get four Wall Rings or have a Summoner that
can cast Carbuncle. Make Black or Time Mages and one Summoner
(if you do not have four Wall Rings equipped. Have the Mages cast
their strongest spells (Flare for Black Mages and Meteo for Time
Mages) while the fourth person heals the party. You can get the
Wall Rings from enemies in the Phoenix Tower. Bahamut's spells
will bounce back to him (putting the fight into you favor) when
you have Wall on the party. The instant kill spell he does at
the end will also be reflected back to Bahamut.
Defeating enemies ("Final Fantasy
"The following is an easy way to defeat most enemies.
If you have a Sorcerer and any of the level 5 Black Magic spells
(Fire 3, Ice 3, etc.) you can instantly kill enemies that are
weak against that element. This also works on some Bosses.
Have one character master the character that holds two weapons
and the Hunter. Make him the bare class and give him two swords
and the Sshot ability. Equip two weapons then use the Sshot ability
in battle for an eight hit combination.
Extra ABP ("Final Fantasy 5)
"In Phoenix Tower, after every few stairs you will
reach a room with two pots, one on each side of the room. One
of the pots contain money, but the other contains a monster. The
enemy is called "Magic Pot" and will not attack you.
He will say "Gimme Elixer". Use an Elixer on him and
he will reward with 100 ABP and an item. This is possibly the
easiest way to master items like Mimes, Samurais, Chemists, and
In The Void (the last area of the game), all of the monsters give
20+ ABP after a battle. To easily win Behemoth battles, first
cast Berserk on it. Next, cast Golem on your allies. You can now
use physical or magic attacks to defeat them. If Golem wears out,
simply recast it. Also in The Void is a monster called a "Mover".
They are very rare, but if you are lucky enough to encounter them
(they appear in sets of three), kill them all quickly with attacks
such as Bahamut or Leviathan. If you let them live too long, they
start to move around and eventually turn one of your party members
into stone. When this happens, the battle automatically ends and
you get nothing. The reward for defeating the Movers is 199 ABP
and 100,000 gil.
Easy experience ("Final Fantasy
"In the first world, once you get the airship go
to the chain of islands at the bottom of the map. The ones above
crescent island have an enemy called Black Flame which has the
Blue spell Black Shock, and gives high experience, gold and ABP
when defeated. Also, some of the islands have a monster called
Prototype which you cannot hurt to defeat. Use the Control command
and have it cast Exploder on itself You can also learn the Blue
spells Missile and Burn Ray from it. It also gives 500 experience
and 4 ABP when defeated.
The Quar Harpy gives 250 experience to everyone if four are alive,
333 experience if three are alive, 500 experience to two or 1000
experience to one person. This can help early on in the game,
if you are strong enough.
In the second world, after X-Death turns on his barrier, you will
get sent to another part of the world map. There are two places
that actually show up on the map when you use it -- a town and
a castle. Villagers in the town warn you about the castle, and
they also mention that the legendary weapons are all sealed there.
If you investigate, you will find absolutely nothing to do, and
a very difficult (in fact, impossible at your level) monster called
a ShieldDragon. The dragon is technically invincible to you. He
has Reflect, and you do not. He can kill you in a few blows, and
you (most likely) cannot seriously hurt him. However, if you have
someone become a trainer long enough to learn Control, then you
have a chance. Simply have everyone defend or heal while one of
the party tries to Control until they are successful. Once you
are controlling him, you can attack him with Blaze for 4999 damage.
Being a magical attack in nature, Blaze will not break the Control.
Repeat this until he is defeated. By defeating it, you will get
1000 gil, 2500 experience per character (10,000 experience total),
and 5 ABP. To add insult to injury, you can steal a Mythril Shield
from him every time (and occasionally a Gold Shield), and sometimes
you will win a Gold Shield from the fight.
Easy gil ("Final Fantasy 5)
"Go to the Valley Of Dragons in Galuf's World (World
2). Go in a cave and find a Zombie Dragon. Kill it. This may be
difficult, considering it has about 8,000 HP. After the battle,
it should give you about 1000 to 1500 gil, 500 to 1000 experience,
and 2 to 7 ABP. A subscreen will appear. Take the Dragon Fang
or Dragon Tooth, and kill some more Zombie Dragons. Each Dragon
Fang or Dragon Tooth is worth 2500 gil. Also in the Valley Of
The Dragons is a Bone Mail that resembles a ribcage. It has good
defense, and can be used by Samurai, Knights, Sorcerers, Lancers,
and most other fighting classes.
No battles in Phoenix Tower ("Final

useful attack, Thunder.
Hint Golem Summon ("Final Fantasy
"In the Valley of Dragons, get into a few random
battles until the monsters you fight are a Skelesaurus, Dragon
Zombie and Golem. The other monsters will turn on Golem and ask
for help. If you kill the two monsters before they kill Golem,
Golem will praise you and join your party as a summon. You have
to use the Golem item in order for him to join (just like Ramuh).
Shoat Summon ("Final Fantasy
"In World 2 with the submarine you will find a tunnel
underwater at the bottom part of the northwestern-most continent.
Go through the tunnel and get into a fight. Shoat is difficult
to defeat. His only attack does not miss and turns your characters
into stone. The tunnel (outside in the water) is a yellow circle
in the rock wall. The tunnel is also a good place to level up.
Mirage Town ("Final Fantasy
"Get the airship and fly to Cresent Island. Head
to the middle of the joined continent, and land next to a forest
there. Walk around in the forest until it seems you have gotten
into a battle. The screen will be fuzzy instead of the normal
swirl for starting a battle. This town has extremely good weapons,
6 level six magic spells, and great armor. There are two shops
in every store, so search around the town.
Black Chocobo in World 3 ("Final
"Fly to Mirage Town and stand near the pub. If you
go around through a back door, you will appear behind the counter
of the pub. Check the barrels below you to get a useful weapon,

Bone Mail ("Final Fantasy 5)
"The Bone Mail is in the Dragon Valley in Galuf's
world. In the first area where you start to see bones, you will
pass the ribs. The Bone Mail is in a small pile of bones just
before you turn the corner on the cliff's edge. This armor is
for Knights, Samurais, Sorcerers, etc. This armor will serve well
until the end of the game.

to find a barn-like location. Enter it to find yourself in the
forest below. Wander around until you find a wizard who will tell
to pick from two crates. Pick the right one for the Chicken Knife,
or the left one for the Brave Sword. The Chicken Knife can be
easily powered-up, up so it is even more powerful than the Excalibur.
The Brave Sword powers up when you win battles, the Chicken Knife
powers up when you run.
Double Lance ("Final Fantasy
"Once you get to Val castle in the second world,
you will notice there is a basement in one of the lower levels
that has a locked door. Down in this small basement room, you
encounter monsters called Rock Statues. You can steal the Double
Lance from these enemies, but it may take awhile. You will mostly
get potions, but have patience. The Double Lance allows the user
to attack twice. Try stealing two and equip them to a Ninja for
a 4x attack. The rock statues are very difficult to defeat, but
a Soft will kill them instantly.

and talk to the Chancellor. Then, go to the treasure room on the
east side of the castle and talk to the Chancellor again to enter.
Once there, you can find the very useful Healing Staff, which
restores HP rather than taking it away. It is magic though --

Gau new moves). It is a small forest patch on the island just
north of the Vedlt Island. You will be close when Tyranos start

Getting Gogo ("Final Fantasy
"In the World Of Ruin, go to the northeast triangle
island. Bring strong characters. There you will meet a monster
named Zoneeater. It uses Demi, but also uses an attack called
"Engulf" that sucks a character into him. Allow him
to use "Engulf" on all of your characters. The game
will not end. Instead, you will end up in a cave. This cave has
strong monsters and great treasures, such as the Genji Armor.
Jump across the bridges and avoid the walking people to eventually
reach the end. Walk through the door and you will see a covered-up
person. Talk to him and he will join your party.
Getting Yeti ("Final Fantasy
"Go to Narshe in the World Of Ruin. Have Mog in
your party. Then, go to the mountain where you first got Mog.
You will see the frozen Esper from the start of the game. Use
Fire attacks on him and defeat him. This is the esper Tritoch
that teaches Fire 3, Ice 3, and Bolt 3. Then, go to where the
Esper was located and slide down. You will be in a cave. Most
of the chests are trapped, and only have a secret path to them
-- do not touch them. At the end of the cave, go to the skull
statue, and take the Esper. Yeti will attack you. Defeat him,
and if you have Mog in your party, he will join.
Getting the Soul Saber ("Final
"To obtain this sword, in the World Of Ruin go to
Firgao and into the dungeon where Edgar rejoins your party. Go
into the room were all the thieves entered. At the center is a
statue of armor. Approach to it and press [X] to get the
Soul Saber. This is a great sword, as it deals damage by how much
MP you used. It also refills you MP.
Getting Odin Esper ("Final Fantasy
"Use the following trick to get the Odin Esper quickly,
without getting into battles. After receiving the Airship in the
World Of Ruins, go to Narshe. Go to where the Moogle Village is
located. Talk to Mog and he will join the party. In the location
where you found Mog, search the wall to retrieve the Moogle Charm
(when equipped on Mog, you will fight no random encounters). Go
to Figaro Castle and talk to the engineer to head back to the
desert. When the castle is moving, you will suddenly stop and
the engineer will mention something. Go to the prison cell with
the door and go through. Have Mog in the party with the relic
Moogle Charm equipped. Follow the path until you reach the Ancient
Castle. Go to the throne room and search the statue to retrieve
the Odin Esper. You will never encounter an enemy unless you open
two chests that contain monsters. If this happens, just cast Vanish
then Doom to dispose of them. This is an easy way to get Odin
and learn the rare spell Meteor.
Getting Ragnorak Esper ("Final
"After you save Locke in the World Of Imbalance
and the scene with Rachele (Locke's girlfriend), go to Narshe.
Open the weapons shop and go in the door on the right. The man
will ask if you want the sword. Take the Esper. The sword teaches
you Flare, but you can learn it elsewhere while the Esper teaches
you Ultima, the best spell in the game.
More Espers ("Final Fantasy
"Go to Albrook in the World of Balance. Immediately
before going to the floating continent, you will meet a man that
says someone tried to sell a glowing rock, and that he went to
Tzen. Go to Tzen and look behind the trees in the top right-hand
corner of the town. You can buy the Sraphim Esper for 3000 GP.
Also at this time, if you go to Jidoor you can buy the Golem and
ZoneSeek Espers for 20,000 GP at the auction house, but it may
take a while because some other things are sold there as well,
such as Cure Rings, Cherub Downs and talking Chocobos (which you
cannot actually buy).
Easy Catrot battles ("Final
"You will find a creature called the Cactrot in
the desert southwest of Maranda. It only has 3 HP, an extremely
high Evade. Equip your characters with a Sniper Sight and a Genji
Glove to take off 2 HP every time it is attacked. This can also
be helpful when you face a Catrot in the coliseum.
Equip the Sniper Sight and the Atma Weapon (which should be found
before you even get to World of Ruin). This will kill Cactrot
with one hit.
When trying to kill the Catrot, use Edgar's tool command, then
use the Drill.
Cast Ultima five times for 1 MP ("Final
"Equip the Economizer and Gem Box relics to allow
you attack two times for 2 MP. Make sure you know the magic Quicke,
then enter a battle. Cast Quicke followed by Ultima, then just
Ultima four more times.
Throw anything twice ("Final
"The following trick allows you to throw anything
twice, even if you only have one of the item. Have Gogo mimic
Shadow to throw the same item twice. Note. If you throw an item
that you have more than one of, Gogo will use his own and you
will lose two items instead of one.
Get through tough levels without
avoiding battles ("Final Fantasy 6)
"If you are fighting foes who primarily do not use
magic, cast Vanish on all your party members. Afterwards, most
battles can be fought without taking damage. Occasionally, you
will have to recast Vanish when magic is actually used. This works
very well if you battle Bosses, such as Umaro, who do not use
magic, and you are tired of using the Vanish/Doom trick.
Good Coliseum techniques (Final Fantasy 6)
Get the Marvel Shoes
Good setup for either Terra or Celes
in WOR ("Final Fantasy 6)
Bet the Flame Sabre to get something (face a "hard"
Ninja). Bet that item to get the Rename Card (face Cactrot). Bet
the Rename Card to get the Marvel Shoes (face DoomDragon)
It helps if your other relic are the Marvel Shoes. If you
do not have them, get the Cure Ring, as he has a 1,000 point attack.
Most other battles after getting the Marvel Shoes
Equip the Marvel Shoes and Dragoon Boots. It also helps if
you have made it to at least level 35, and have either the Genji
or Aegis shield, plus the Force Armor. Do not use the Atma Weapon
here. It also helps if you know some spells, such as Stop.
The Doom Dragon
Equip the same relics and armor as above, also equip the Flame
shield. The dragon know S.Cross, a powerful "fire" spell
-- this will absorb it. If you have good magic defense, his N.Cross
"ice" spell will rarely, if ever hit. With the Dragon
Boots you can be in the air and gain some life back with the Marvel
Shoes. He does use Fallen One, which takes your HP down to 1,
but rarely attacks so you can gain life back. It helps if you
are at a higher level so you can evade his rare non-magic attacks.
Another way to get the rename card in the coliseum, which
you need to get the marvel shoes, is to bet an Elixir. Then you
can fight and should easily beat Cactrot.
"The following is a good setup for either Terra
or Celes in WOR, , but before gaining the Marvel Shoes. Equip
the relic that allows you to hold two weapons. 2. Equip Drainer
with the right hand, and Atma Weapon with the left. This allows
you to gain HP first, which makes the Atma weapon more powerful
immediately on the same attack. The Mystery Veil, Force Armor
is good for armor, and Running Shoes and another relic is also
good (Cure Ring is not necessary). After gaining the Marvel Shoes,
equip the Soul Sabre, which you also win in the Coliseum instead.
With the Marvel Shoes and good armor, you should be near the maximum
HP most of the time, and will instead need to gain MP back.
Level up strategy ("Final Fantasy
"When leveling, make sure you have the right Esper
you want equipped to give you bonus leveling points. Once you
gain Bahamut, make sure the person with the Atma Weapon is using
it to gain HP +50%,. This will make the Atma Weapon even more
Get Cyan in World Of Ruin ("Final
"Go to the town of Zozo. Talk to the only man that
is walking around (not jumping from building to building or laying
down). He will give you an item. Then, go to the top of the building
with the door that is rusted shut and use the item that the man
gave you. It will open the rusted door, which leads to Mt. Zozo.
There, you will get in a lot of fights and eventually meet up

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
Glitch: Misspelling ("Final Fantasy
"Before battle, equip someone with the Esper Fenrir.
Then while in battle, go to the person with Fenrir, select "Magic",
and press [Up]. The game will have "Fenris" printed
instead of "Fenrir".
