In-game reset
Hold [L1] + [L2] + [R1] + [R2] + [Select] + [Start] during game play.

Nightmare and No Future modes
After completing the game, go to your study and access the books there. You will find a book called "Forbidden Tome". You will be asked "Do you wish to live in peace?". Select "Yes" for normal mode, or "No" for the next question, which will be "Want a Nightmare?". Select "Yes" for Nightmare mode (difficult) or "No" for the next question, which will be "Wish to have a future?". Select "No" for No Future mode (extra difficult). Since you will probably have to complete the game many times to actually complete all the story segments, these options help make it less repetitive and add a bit of a challenge.

Get a Chocobo
To get a Chocobo as a pet, have a Final Fantasy 8 saved game on the same memory card as the one used for Legend Of Mana. Enter the save screen, highlight the Final Fantasy 8 file, then exit out of the save screen. When you catch a bird egg in the eastern section of Domina it should hatch into a Chocobo.

To get a Chocobo as your first pet instead of a Rabite, name your character Dagger or if it is a boy, Seifer. Then, have Daena as your NPC. Instead of a beast egg, you will get a bird egg. It will soon become a Chocobo.

Secret sword
Have a saved game from SaGa Frontier 2 on the same memory card as the one used for Legend Of Mana. Enter the save screen, highlight the SaGa Frontier 2 file, then exit out of the save screen. Enter Bone Fortress and head toward the bridge where you fought the DeathBringer. There will be two skeletons at that location. When approach them, them you will fight DeathBringer 2. After defeating it, you will get the strongest sword from SaGa Frontier 2.

Easy Lucre
After getting the frozen heart "AF", defeat the Boss and re-enter the level. Instead of going to the Field Of Lost Guilt, move right. Go in and out to get Dragon Eggs that sell for 5,000 or 500 Lucre.

Go to Luon Highway and fight Spiny Cones and Stinger Bugs. Try to win some Wind Caps from Spiny Cones and Clear Feathers from Stinger Bugs. Go to your house and Temper the Wind Caps with Clear Feathers. Finish after you get three Lord Of Flies cards on one Wind Cap. Take the Wind Cap to the nearest store and sell it. You should be able to sell one Wind Cap for 26,000+ Lucre. If not, add more Clear Feathers to it.

If you find your pet useless or do not like it, bear with it and let it out to graze. After some hours of adventuring, it should be at a quite high level. Sell it, and you earn a profit.

Fight Dragons for Dragon Steaks to sell for 1000 Lucre.

Go to the Underworld (or anywhere else that the following monsters appear) and fight Specters until one drops a DragonBone (CursedBone Pendant). Then, fight Bloodsuckers until you have at least four Blackened Bats. Go to your workshop and temper the Blackened Bats into the DragonBone Pendant. You should see three "Wings Of Darkness" cards added to the item. When you are finished, you can sell the pendant at any shop for well over 20,000 lucre.

Easy Experience Crystals and Lucre
Go to Norn Peaks after you destroy Drakonis. Go to the top of the mountain and Akravator will be there. Destroy him and leave the room. Return and he will be there again. You can keep repeating this to get as many Experience Crystals and Lucre as needed.

At the beginning of the game after you complete "The Lost Princess" event, return to Mekiv Caverns. At the entrance, there should be two Boinks. Talk to the lower one and he will transport you in front of a opening. Go through, and there should be two Goblins. Fight them and you should either get lots of experience and Lucre, or an item. Keep fighting the Goblins for about an hour, and you should be about level 12. After that, go to a store and sell all the Axes you obtained from the Goblins. You should have a mixture of Earthsplitters and BlackElks. Each one of these is worth 300 Lucre. Sell them. Also, if desired, you can also keep one of these axes as they are the strongest weapons you can have at this point of the game. Earthsplitters are two-handed axes and their power level is 31. BlackElks are one-handed axes and their power level is 26.

At the Bejeweled City where you fight the Machine Golem, defeat him, get the jewel, leave, return, then defeat him again to get 850 experience points and at least 100 Lucre.

Get "Fastest Wheel"
Complete the "Catchin' Lilipeas" quest and have a saved game from Chocobo Racing on the same memory card as the one used for Legend Of Mana. Highlight the Chocobo Racing file, then exit out of the save screen. Go to Polpota Harbor. On the Polpota Harbor map screen Skippy, the thin big eared creature from the "Catchin' lilipeas" and "Huntin' Du'cate" quests, will appear and hand you a ring item called "Fastest Wheel."

Rare items in Geo
If you want a place where you can buy Holy Water, Ishe Platinum, and more, place Geo as far away from your house as possible on the map. Then, go to the inn. Inside you will find a Teapo that sells minerals that it has mined. You will get Ishe Platinum, and more commonly, Holy Water.

Get both main characters in party
Have a saved game file for both characters. Go to Geo or the house in Domina with the mailbox that has ears on it. For Geon talk to Duelle (onion boy). If you are alone, he will ask if you want to call a friend. Answer "Yes". Depending on who you are using, choose the other save with the other character. Then, leave the arena with both characters. In Domina just walk up to the door and press [X].

Shadow Zero mini-game
Complete the then "Jewel hunter" quests (The Lost Princess, The Flame of Hope, Drowned Dreams, The Looking-Glass Tower, The Lucky Clover, Cosmo, Two Pearls, Alexandrite, Flourite, and Tear Drop Crystal). When those events are finished, go to the bar in Domina on Salamander day. You should see a Shadow Zero standing near the counter. Talk to him to play the game.

Land Bopper mini-game
Get nine lands in full view on the world map (which should resemble a slanted tic-tac-toe board). Hold [L1] button for approximately four seconds to get the Land Bopper start screen to appear.

New Game + feature
After successfully completing the game for the first time, load the game that is next to a music symbol. This will give you a "New Game +" feature. This game allows access to your old level, items, weapons, and instruments. When you start out in your home, go to the study (the room to the right down the stairs). Find the encyclopedias and go to the "Forbidden Tome".
Killing Pee-wee Birdie
To kill the little annoying egg with feet (Pee-wee birdie) talk to it fifteen times and it will explode.

Step on crabs mini-game bonus
Within the Madora Beach, you can play the "Step on Crabs" mini-game. Depending on how many crabs you have stepped on, you will get a rank from the pink crab in the Queen Beach. There are 31 crabs on the map, plus the Fullmetal Hagger Boss in event "Summer Lovin'". Note: The count will return to zero when you leave the land. If you achieve 30 or more kills, go inside the home and you will find Varelie (the penguin) migrating into your house. If you have 32 kills, you will also see her baby penguin. Note: To achieve 32 kills, you must step all 31 crabs before killing the Fullmetal Hagger, then kill Fullmetal Hagger.

Common crab mistake
To be confused while trying to step on all the crabs in the beach, catch an aquatic egg. At times it may hatch into a crab identical to the ones on the beaches. If you have this crab in your team, you may mix him up with the crabs that can be stepped on, and you will be chasing your own while the others escape.

Getting pet crabs to live in your house
Whenever you help the pirate ship captain, he will give you a pet crab. The crab is kept alive in your office. Just be sure when you enter the office not to touch it, or it will die instantly.

Easy pets
This trick can only be used when you find a monster egg. Catch it and leave the screen. Go back, if you find another one, catch it. If not, exit and return again until you find one.

Renaming items
While on the menu screen, enter the equip menu. Select the item of your choice, select the status of the item, and press [X]x2 on the item. A name creation screen will appear, allowing you to enter the name of your choice.

Equip a piece of equipment or instrument then select it as if you were going to change it to something else. Choose status instead, select the name of the equipment or instrument, and you will be able to change the name.

Monster Eggs
The most common places for monster eggs to appear are locations which had Boss battles. If when you enter a recent battle area and a monster egg is not there, leave that room and return until one appears. When you find one, map out the most common areas that the monster eggs wander around and leave food every place it usually goes. Note: You can only have five pieces of food out at a time.

To get Monster Eggs without using food, hide behind it without being seen until a cloud with "..." appears over its head. Then, quickly snatch it. Do not worry if you have people following you -- Monster Eggs will not notice them.

Locations of different types of Monster Egg
To raise a certain class of monster you need a certain type of egg to have a chance of getting that monster. For example, if you wanted to have a Land Dragon, whose class is Dragon, as a pet you would need to hatch a Dragon type egg to have a chance of getting it. The locations of the different types of egg are as follows.
Aerial egg: Luon Highway (Boss location), Norn Peaks (nowhere special 1).
Aquatic eggs: Madora Beach (extreme right of area), SS Buccaneer (lowest room)
Arthropod eggs: Norn Peaks (nowhere special 2)
Beast eggs: The White Forest (nowhere special)
Demi-Human eggs: ??? (???)
Demonic eggs: Jungle (nowhere special)

Plant eggs: Jungle (Boss location)
Poltergeist eggs: Junkyard (nowhere special), Tower of Leires(Boss location)
Reptile eggs: Luon Highway (in the cave)
Undead eggs: The Bone Fortress (Boss location)
Note: The eggs can usually be found where the area's Boss was located, but not always. They appear in the same places the Spirits (Salamander, Shade, etc.) appear. Sometimes nothing will appear in that location - enter and exit that screen until they appear. A few Egg/Spirit locations will not work until certain mini-quests (see the Diary) are have been completed.

Locations of Rare Tempering Materials
Orihalcon is most easily obtained In the Junkyard. An enemy called the Punkster will drop it rarely when defeated.

Dragons Blood and Dragons Breath are occasionally dropped when any member of the Dragon species (Land Dragon, Sky Dragon, Kid Dragon) is defeated. A Kid Dragon can be found in the Bone Fortress.

Holy Water is found in a few treasure chests throughout the course of the game.

Gold Seed Artifact
You have to approximately sixty fruits from Trent (the big tree at your house where you plant seeds). Trent will give you the Gold Seed artifact This artifact gives you land - Orchard.

Free Candies during battle
During battle you can make Candies appear just by hitting the enemy. To do this you will need two good "normal abilities," such as Flip-Kick and Moonsault. Start off by using a Quick Attack and follow it up by using Flip-Kick. You should be followed by blue shadows of yourself. This means you are linking your moves together. Keep using Flip-Kick until you are out of range. Then, use a Moonsault slash ("Moonsault" + [Square]) to back towards the enemy. After about two to five successful Flip-Kicks/Moonsault slashes, your character will pause and a Candy will appear. This is a great trick to use during No Future Mode, when you have basic weapons and armor, as it will keep you alive longer. Just make sure that the blue shadows keep following you and you will eventually get a Candy.

Items with value
If during the course of the game you find your characters Lucre (funds) a bit low, go to the SS Bucaneer. Once there, make your way to the lower deck area and enter the left door on the bottom of the screen. This will put you in the forecastle. Here and in the next room are the Polter Box enemies (which resemble a treasure chest). The Polter Box frequently drops three different valuable crystals. The Sun and Moon crystals each sell for 750 Lucre. The Glow crystal sells for 1,000 Lucre. Go in and out of the room to bring the enemies back as many times as needed. If you have not got the SS Bucaneer, yet go to the second floor of the Bone Fortress and fight the Kid Dragon at that location. He will ocassionally drop a Dragon Steak, which is worth 1,000 Lucre. The Kid Dragon will also drop Dragon Breath which is very useful in tempering swords and sells for 300 Lucre.

Word translations

Dub: Yes
Dud: No, goodbye
Duba: You
Duda: Me
Dubba: Friends

Gug: All other creatures
Da: Light or stars
Ba: Night
Dudda: Lamp

Two player duel
If you want to fight a friend, travel to Geo and go to the uppermost dot. Enter the building and go past Sotherbee into the basement. Continue down once more and talk to the Garlic Guy. You can fight against an NPC or a friend's character.

Forge and temper strong swords
To forge either a one handed sword with an attack power of 245 or a two handed sword with an attack power of 307 you will need the following items.
One piece of Orihalcon (this method may work with other metals but the resulting weapon may be weaker). Note: There are apparently multiple types of Orihalcon ore in the game. They range in strength (all attack figures come from a one handed Halcsword) from an attack power of 28 or 35, all the way to 75. Which one you are likely to receive depends on your character's luck level and possibly the difficulty level of the game. Also having a pet Polter Box (a poltergeist class monster whose synch ability makes enemies drop rare items more often) in your party may be helpful.

Five Gold Coins from each of the eight Elemental Spirits (Wisp, Shade, Jinn, etc.).

Five Bottles of Dragon Blood.

Five Bottles of Holy Water.

One Vial of Dragon Breath.
Note: The following instructions will assume that a one handed Orihalcon sword is to be forged and tempered.
Forge your Orihalcon into the HalcSword with attack power 75.

Go to the "Temper a Weapon" option.

Start off by tempering your weapon with the Elemental Spirit Gold Coins. The order you temper your weapon with them is extremely important. If done correctly, six of your elemental essence markers will be active. If done in an incorrect order only four will be active.

Apply the Shade Elemental Spirit Coins first. Temper the sword with all five coins or until three Shade Elemental Cards (Mystic Powers on the weapons status screen) appear and have been applied to your weapon. This will raise your attack power by approximately 10 points, raise the sword's Shade Essence Level to 4 and give it the Shade Elemental Essence Marker.

Now that you have finished with Shade, apply the rest of the coins the same way in the following order: Salamander, Jinn, Dryad, Wisp, Aura, Gnome, and Undine. When you have done this the sword will have approximately 140 attack power.

Note: If you want to try changing Plunge Attacks, now is the time to do it. If you try it later it will negatively effect your attack power and waste your materials.

Next, temper the sword with the five bottles of Dragons Blood or until three God of War Cards have appeared. This will raise your swords bonus stats slightly and increase attack power.

Then, temper your sword with the five bottles of Holy Water or until three Cleric Cards have appeared. The first Cleric Card will lower your attack power slightly. Ignore that because the second will increase that attack power moderately and the third card will boost it greatly, so that the swords attack power is around 225.

Finally, to get your sword's attack power up to 245, temper it once with a Vial of Dragon Breath.
General forging and tempering tips
Mystic Power Cards seem to work best in threes. For example, where one Cleric Card would have a slightly negative effect on attack power, three greatly increases it. The God of War Card only gives a slight boost in raw power if one is used. If three are used it is raised by 10 (the God of War Card works well on all types of Orihalcon Armor).

Plunge Attacks on your weapon can be changed. For instance, the Sun Crystal's Card, Sun God (you may need three applications of this card in a row) will change one of your plunge attacks (on the one handed Orihalcon sword) to Sunlight, which will still only do medium damage but will also be incredibly effective against the undead. Some items will change the amount of damage (from medium to large, etc). Save before you experiment - you may get results you do not like, and will want to load that saved data.

Forging a strong attack weapon
First, forge a weapon out of any (good) material. For example, make a spear out of LorimarIron. Next, make sure you have at least 3 silver coins of each element. You will also need 42 Glow Crystals and 16 Chaos Crystals. You can find the Crystals at the SS Buccaneer from the Poulter Boxes. It also helps to have a Poulter Box with you as a pet. You can sell the Sun/Moon Crystals you find to buy the Glow/Chaos Crystals you cannot find. For each element, use this order in tempering your weapon:
3 Glow Crystals
1 Chaos Crystal
2 Silver Coins
2 Glow Crystals
1 Chaos Crystal
1 Silver Coin
Then, add the last 2 Glow Crystals when you finish with the last element. In the example, it resulted in a LorimarIron Spear that had 195 Attack power.

Best weapons and armor without tempering
Go to Mekiv Caverns and move to the room with the egg (oddity). Go in and out when there is nothing in the room. Stay and fight the Land Dragon when it appears repeatedly. It will eventually drop Dragon Scales. Make a weapon or armor with it. It is possible to get a knife with a power of 89.

Polter Box quick items
Standing near your Polter Box produces an "electric" bolt that appears connected toyou and your box's crystal. This shares the special abilities of you and your box. You will gain the rare item finding ability, as long as that bolt is active. Note: you will not get experience while doing this.

Easy finding ability for monsters
To get the finding ability of your monsters to 99 quickly, feed the following to them in order: Gold Clover, Pine O' Clock, Gold Clover. You can get 4 points on every level, and max out before level 36.

Learn how good your monster is
To find out if your pet is good or not (in attacks, defense, offense, rarity, etc.), just go to sell the monster and look at the price. If the monster is good, it can be sold at prices over 300 Lucre. If it is not that good, it will cost less. It will then be your choice to keep it or not. You can also earn a lot of money this way. Note: This cannot be done with eggs.

Demi-Human pets
You cannot find Demi-Human eggs. They do not exist. You may come across a Demi-Human creature who offers to join you. Accepting the offer is the only way to get an Demi-Human creature for a pet. Once enlisted, these can be treated like any other pet, and they take up one of your five pet slots. They will not join you if you already have a pet or Golem in your party. You can encounter a Chobin Hood in one of the random pathways in the Jungle, a Mad Mallard near where you fight the Axebeaks in Duma Desert, and a Tomato Man at the entrance of Norn Peaks.

You can get a Succubus demi-human pet in the Fieg Snowfields. However, it will not join if you have a Golem or Pet with you.

Quick growing tech
Walking about on the world map greatly increases the speed that your Orchard and Trent will grow. Simply walk from one end of the world map and back a few times.

Ignore Sproutlings
At the beginning of the game, when you gain control of your character, you can explore the house. Outside the home is a Sproutling who gives you an artifact. However, you can ignore it by trying to get out of the map without talking to it. When you repeat this six times, Sproutling will begin the conversation immediately. Note: If this is done, the "Sproutling" section in the Character Tome will not be filled in.

Hit a monster non-stop
Hit a monster once and do not hit again until slightly after you would normally hit it a normally attack sequence. If timed correctly, you will repeat the same attack that was just completed. For example, if you are holding a staff, your attack would resemble 1-2-3-4-rest-1-2-3-4-rest. However, if you time your hits slightly after each other, they will resemble 1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-etc. This type of attack will also immobilize most monsters and Bosses (except when they are about to do a special move). You cannot do this attacks that use [Square].

"Final Fantasy Adventure reference
"Sometimes during the game you will receive an item called "Topple Cotton". Topple is the first town you visit in Final Fantasy Adventure on the Game Boy.

There are also other items referring to Final Fantasy Adventure. Some of these are IshePlatinum, which refers to the town of Ish/Ishe, MenosBronze, referring to Menos, and WendelSilver, referring to Wendel.

Additionally, the shopkeeper and some of the monsters resemble their counterparts in Final Fantasy Adventure.

"Final Fantasy reference
"In Geo, at the gates of the Academy Of Magic, there is a little statue of the original Vivi, from the early Final Fantasy games. Stay to the left of the screen to see it.

Name changes
Some characters' names differ from their Japanese versions.
