Hints & Cheat Codes
Casting magic on multiple enemies:
Hold R1 to cast a spell on multiple enemies.
Hint: Defeating Atma Weapon:
Use RASP until Atma Weapon is out of MP to wound him. Another technique is to cast Vanish and Doom.
Take Gogo, a character that has the X-Zone spell, and a character with the Vanish spell. Make sure Gogo has the Magic skill equipped, and not Runic (it is useless in this battle). Cast Vanish on the two creatures, and then use X-Zone. They will die and you will win the battle. Your rewards are the Aura, Cyan, and the Alexander Esper. It is useful in battle against creatures such as Doomgaze, which is weak against Pearl.
Defeating Phantom Train:
Use a Phoenix Down and the Phantom Train, a possibly hard Boss, is easily destroyed.
Get an Exp. Egg and fight some Tyranos in the forests above the veldt at the World Of Ruin. Use Vanish, Doom or Vanish, X-Zone in the battle. Note: The following trick requires a turbo controller, a PlayStation that can be left on for an extended amount of time, and tape. In the World of Balance, go to the Lete River. Get on the raft outside of the Returner's hideout. Go to the menu at the first save point. Select "Config", then "Cmd. Set". Select "Short" and press X. Place Banon's health spell at the top instead of fight, then save the game. On the river, go up at the first intersection. Turn on the turbo for X (or the entire controller). Tape X down, so it will always be active. The characters will fight and heal automatically. Leave the game in this condition overnight. This should result in an increase in HP and MP. Disable the turbo, and go the other way. You will find a save point where you can check your levels, Sabin's blitz techniques, and Terra's magic. Save the game if needed. Also, if you want to do this again, as soon as you check your characters disable the turbo and have them kill each other. You will lose all the GP and items you have gained, but your character's levels will be the same. You will be at the first save point, allowing you to repeat the trick as needed. Go to the green area around Doma Castle. You will find find Sprintors, Spektors And Tummble Weads there. Always use your most powerful fire attacks for easy defeats. As soon as your characters get powerful enough, you should put only one person in your party and fight around that area to get a lot of experience.
Hint: Quick MP:
In the World Of Balance, go to the triangular island in the very top right corner. Keep walking around until encountering the invisible monster called Intangir. Simply chant death on it to gain 10 MP. In the World Of Ruin, go to the desert south west of Maranda. There a creature called Cactros that has 3 HP, but is hard to hit and is immune to almost all magic. Use Cyan's Dispatch, Edgar's Drill, or Sabin's Bum Rush to defeat it.
Hint: Defeating Kefka for the final time:
When fighting Kefka for the final time in Kafka's tower, throw the Atma weapon. He should either die or be weak enough to be defeated with one more hit.
Hint: Defeating almost every Boss:
To kill almost every Boss in the game, cast Vanish then Doom to kill it. The Vanish makes the Boss always get hit by magic spells.
Hint: 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.
Hint: More damage with Lock
Equip Locke with Offering and Genji Glove. Then, give him the Atma weapon Valiant Knife. Although this is best when around 4000 HP, he still does a lot of damage if less is available.
Hint: Getting the Paladin Shield:
Equip the Cursed Shield and a Ribbon (so the effects of the Cursed Shield are negated). Fight 255 battles to transform the Cursed Shield into the Paladin Shield.
Hint: Getting the Chain Saw:
In Zozo, when you find the clock on the top right side of the town, put in the following times. First hand 6:00, second hand 10, third hand 50.
Hint: Atma Weapon combo:
This trick requires the Atma Weapon (Cave to Esper World), Offering (In World Of Ruin, Odin's Castle), and approximately 7,000 HP. The Atma Weapon powers up by your HP. With high HP you should be able to do 9,999 damage to every enemy (even Kefka). With the Offering, you will do this four times (39,996 damage) in just one turn.
Hint: Another Atma Weapon:
I 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 character.
Hint: 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: T
T T T
T 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 attack.
Hint: 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.
Hint: Stealing a Gengi Glove:
On the floating continent in the World Of Balance, you can steal a Genji Glove from the Dragon. Bring Locke along and equip him with either a Genji Glove and the Thieve's Glove (or the Steal Ring and the Thieve's Glove). The dragon also carries a potion.
Hint: Getting the Soul Saber:
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.
Hint: Get the Genji Glove early:
When Bannon asks you to join the Returners, say "No" three times. One of the people inside will give you the Genji Glove.
Hint: Getting Raiden:
To get Raiden you need Odin. Go in Edger's castle in the World Of Ruin and go underground. When the game states that you hit something, go and check. In the jail there will be an open door. Go through it and you enter a cave. After the cave you will get into the Ancient Castle. Enter the throne room, go to the right side of the throne, walk five steps down, and press X. When you do this go into the right room, and a new room will be there. Note: If you do this you wll lose Odin and gain Raiden.
Hint: Getting Gogo:
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.
Hint: Getting Yeti:
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.
Hint: Getting Odin Esper:
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.
Hint: Economizer relic:
This relic turns all MP used on any magic move to only 1 MP. You can only get it the second world, after Kefka blows up the world, above the Veldt (the place where you teach 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 attacking. Keep fighting them and every once and a while a monster called a Bracosaur will attack. Have Locke steal from it. If that was unsuccessful, kill it and hope that it appears after the battle.
Go any town and check out the houses. Many houses have a grandfather clock. Walk up to the clock and press X. You will most likely receive an elixir. Note: This only works once per clock.
Hint: Easy Catrot battles:
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.
Hint: Cast Ultima five times for 1 MP:
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.
Hint: Throw anything twice:
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.
Hint: Get Cyan in World Of Ruin:
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 with Cyan.
Hint: Hear different music:
Go to the bonus screen to hear a selection of music. Go back and forth from the bonus screen and the start up screen and each time a different selection of music will play.
Hint: Oprah words:
Oh my hero
I'm the darkness
Hint: Coliseum items in World Of Ruin: Trade a Behemoth suit and get a Snow suit. It works well with Mog.
Trade a Rising sun or a Sniper and get a Bone club. Trade the Bone Club and get a Red Jacket.
Trade a Chocobo suit and get a Moogle suit. Trade the Moogle suit and get a Nutkin suit. Trade that and get Genji Armor.
Trade Coronet and get a Regal Crown. Trade that and a get Genji helmet.
Trade an Imp Halberd and keep trading everything you get till u get an EXP egg.
Hint: 99 of almost every item:
Put Gau and Relm in your party and go to the Velt. Then, have Gau Leap, and on his return have Relm sketch him before he joins you. You will get 99 of almost everything. Note: This may glitch the rest of the game.
