     After many years, reformatted this guide, and removed a bunch of useless
     info no one needs to know.
     The information here is pretty much completed, so nothing to add.

    This is not meant to be as a Walkthrough. Rather, it is meant to list out the 
    mechs, as well as the technical game functions. This guide is for the Gameboy 
    Advance game: Zone of the Enders - The Fist of Mars. Also known as 
    "2173 Testament".
    
    If you require help on game mechanics, mech listing, or even what the Local 
    Servers provide, than this guide is for you. If you require help on a 
    particular stage, it is recommended you choose DEngel's guide.
    
    This guide covers the Mechs, as well as several other things like IAS, 
    the Local Servers, and abilities. This guide will also cover methods for 
    the 2 Scene Paths in the game, or secrets like obtaining Nadia.
    
    This guide will be more effective if you use in conjuction with DEngel's FAQ.
    
    It is recommended you first check out the sections on how you to get to 
    either Scene Path, and getting either Nadia or Twede.
    
    
    ________________________________________________________________________________
    
    
    ---------
    Mech List
    ---------
    
    This section lists out Mechs found in the game. You can see details of a Mech 
    by checking its status. 
    
    For the Mech list, they are arranged in no particular order, but there are 
    no spelling mistakes, so use the "Find" function to search for what you need.
    
    There are three seperate screens when you check a status of a Mech. They 
    are: Unit Status, Weapon, and Pilot Status.
    
    Unit name simply states the name of the Mech. MOVE means how much it is able 
    to move on the Map. Shell states the Unit's defense. HP is pretty obvious. 
    If it goes to 0, the unit is destroyed. EN is energy. You need it for certain 
    attacks. Some Mechs also have abilities like Replenish or SSA1. Some Mech 
    types can also equip Items/Parts.
    
    For Weapons, if you see an arrow to the right of the name, it means the 
    attack may be used after you move. Otherwise, you cannot move before using 
    the Weapon.
    
    Power, Range, and Accuracy Bonuses are pretty much self explanatory.
    
    Fighter means that the weapon will use the Pilot's Battle stat. Shooter 
    means that the weapon will use the Pilot's Shoot stat. Also, if you see a 
    Lightning Symbol, it means that the attack will randomly activate Stun 
    status on it's target.
    
    (For this guide, Weapons that cause Stun will be noted with S.)
    
    When a Target is stunned, it will not move for a turn, and attacks 
    targetting it will have increased accuracies.
    
    Finally, Weapons have limitations. Some require the use of energy, have a 
    limited number of shots, or require at least a certain amount of Spirit.
    
    For this list, Weapons are written in this order:
    Name - Power - Range - Accuracy - Type - Spirit needed - Number of Shots - 
    Energy Used 
    
    
    The unit type is also important.
    
    LEV/Vehicles  : You can upgrade this unit in a Garage, and let it carry up 
                    to 3 items. They are only capable of travelling on Land.
                    The 3 Distinct Qualities of LEV/Vehicles:
                    1) LEVs can only travel on Land
                    2) LEVs do not have a Level Stat
                    3) LEVs can equip Items and be upgraded in Garages
                    
    OFs           : These unit may not be upgraded in a Garage, or equip Items. 
                    OFs can level up, which will automatically raise their Shell, 
                    HP and all Weapon's Power. OFs will gain levels when their 
                    Pilots gain levels. More will be detailed in Mechanics 
                    Section. These units can move in Air and Land. All OFs will 
                    have Level Stat.
                    The 3 Distinct Qualities of OF:
                    1) OFs can travel in Air or on Land
                    2) OFs have a Level Stat, and can level up
                    3) OFs cannot equip Items or be upgraded in Garages
    
    
    Fighter/Ships : These Units are only capable of flying in Air. Nothing 
                    special about them. May use items just like LEVs.
    
    LEV/OF Mix    : An OF that cannot fly, and travel only on Land. It still has a 
                    Level Stat and cannot use Items or be upgraded in a Garage. 
                    Cage's LEV is the only one.
    
    OF Mimic      : Functions similar to that of an OF, but it is not a true OF, 
                    as it is incapable of Levelling up. It does not have a 
                    Level stat, and it can carry items. It behaves more like 
                    a "LEV that can fly" rather than an "OF that cannot 
                    Level Up".
    
    Large OF      : An OF of large proportions, an easy target. Posseses 3 
                    large Weaknesses.
    
    Also note that some frames have large Weaknesses. This will be noted down in 
    this list.
    
    If a unit type cannot equip items, it also means that it cannot be 
    upgraded in a garage.

      You control this for only one battle. You can't upgrade this, as it never

    Local Servers
    -------------
    
    Through various maps of the game, you will see Local Servers popping out. 
    To use the Local Servers, move one of your OFs on to the Square where the 
    Local Server is. A message should pop up, saying "Download Complete". At 
    the end of the Scene, your OFs may acquire new Weapons or Abilities. Only 
    an OF may download data from the Servers. If you place a Unit that is not
    an OF there, it will just come out a message, saying that only OFs may 
    download the data. It is not important which OF takes the data. It just 
    matters whether you have gotten it or not.
    
    You will obtain the Weapons/Abilities after the battle before the 
    Intermission.
    
    This is the list for all the Local Servers in the game.

    Scene Guide
    -----------
    
    This section is taken from:
    http://freett.com/zusiou/
    This site's information is from the Japanese Official Game Guide of this game. 
    There may be some name inaccuracies and such.
    
    This information is a brief summary and Scene plan of this game. This list 
    simply lists out the items you will be getting, tells if a Local Server is 
    present in a scene, notes on triggering Pharsti's quotes. It will also list 
    down specific instances where you need do be watchful of getting to a Scene 
    Path, or acquiring Nadia or Twede.
    
    I make no claims that this section is 100% accurate. This is based on a site 
    that supplied information from the Japanese Official Guide. My knowledge of 
    Japanese is limited, so there may be translation errors, like "not required" 
    into "required". Also, since this is on a Japanese version of the game, 
    there may be some differences which we are not fully aware of.
    
    Take everything here with some consideration, since not all of it is true.
    
    
    Note on Pharsti's Quotes:
    [
    From what I had noticed, some quotes will only appear ONCE. You will get that 
    quote once, and then you will never get that quote again, even if you restart 
    on a new game. (Provided that you saved after you get that quote.)
    
    E.g. On Scene 2 Pharsti ask something if you destroy a frame after Turn 4. 
    If you saved after that, even when you restart on a new game, you will not 
    get that quote again.
    
    Some quotes may be asked more than once, however. 
    E.g. On Scene 12, Pharsti asks a question. This question is asked many times.
    
    I have instances where people tell me they can still get those quotes, even 
    if they have already gotten it. How this is possible, or whether this is 
    true, I do not know. What I havestated here are based on my own experiences.

    Basics and Mechanics
    --------------------
    
    -----
    
    Garage Upgrades
    ---------------
    
    (Note: You won't get to use the Garage in some intermissions.)
    
    
      You can upgrade an LEV's or Vehicle's HP, Shell, or any of it's attacks. 
      You can upgrade each up to 6 times. Each time, the cost for the next upgrade 
      goes up. The costs are as follows.
    
      If a Mech cannot use items, it also means that it cannot be upgraded in a 
      Garage.
    
    
    Upgrade Cost:
    1000, 2000, 4000, 6000, 8000, 10000
    
    Upgrade Effects:-
    
    HP: 
    200, 300, 500, 800, 1200, 1500
    
    EN:
    Each upgrade is + 40 Shell.
    
    Weapon:
    Each upgrade is + 30 Power.
    
    
    -----
    
    OFs Level Up
    ------------
    
      If you noticed carefully, all OFs have Lv stats under their Shell stats.
    
      Whenever the Pilot of an OF gains a level, the OF also gains a level. Note 
      that the Pilot does not have to be at the same level as the OF.
    
      When an OF levels up, it gains some HP, Shell, Weapon Power increase.
    
      The stats gained varies between OFs.
    
      The stats growth between Cage's LEV, Testament, and Nerokerubina are the 
      same.
    
      The stats growth between Vjaya and Orcrist are the same.
    
      Durandal II has his own stat growth.
    
    
    Cage's LEV/Testament/Nerokerubina Level gain:
    
      They keep gaining 60 HP per Level up, until they reach Lv 41. During so, it 
      will only gain 50 HP per level up.
    
      They gain 6 Shell per Level up, until they reach Lv 31, where they will 
      gain 3 Shell per level.
    
    
    Vjaya/Orcrist Level gain:
    
      They gain 75 HP per level up until Lv 31. From Lv 31, they gain 70 HP per 
      level.
    
      From Lv 1 to 15, they gain 9 Shell per level Up. From 16 to 20, they gain 
      6 Shell per level up. From Lv 21 onwards, they gain 3 Shell per level up.
    
    
    Durandal II Level gain:
    
      Durandal II gains 75 HP per level up.
    
      His Shell gain is 15 from Lv 1 to 20. Lv 21 onwards, his gain is 3 Shell.
    
    
    Weapon Power Gain:
    
      All Weapon growth for OFs are the same. They will gain 5 Power in all 
      Weapons, until they reach Lv 31. After that, they gain 3 in Power per 
      Level up.
    
    
    Beyond this, I can't tell what the Level gains are.

    Abilities
    ---------
    
      Note that only Allied units have abilities.
    
    RepairSystem: Unit will have Repair Command. Using this command, target 
                  will be restored some HP. This may be used on self, or any 
                  allied unit targets in the surrounding squares. May be used 
                  after moving. The amount of HP restored is equals to 50% of 
                  the target Unit's Maximum HP.
    
    Replenish: Unit will have Supply Command. Using this command, target will 
               be restored of all Energy and Ammunition for all Weapons. 
               This may be used on self, or any allied targets in the 
               surrounding squares. May be used after moving. The target's Spirit 
               however, will drop by 5.
    
    SSA1: At the start of every turn, the unit recovers 1/20, which is 5%, 
          of it's total HP.
    
    SSA2: At the start of every turn, the unit recovers 1/10, which is 10%, 
          of it's total HP.
    
    BulletEndure: Currently unknown what it exactly does, but is believed to 
                  reduce damage against Weapons that have Shot Counts.
                  Instructions says: Increases defense against shooting attacks 
                  by 10%
    
    EnergyEndure: Currently unknown what it exactly does, but is believed to 
                  reduce damage against Weapons that have Energy Costs.
                  Instructions says: Increases defense against energy attacks 
                  by 10%
    
    DoubleAction: The Unit has the ability to act twice each Turn instead of 
                  just once. This is without doubt, the best Ability.
    
    
    -----
    
    Balance
    -------
    
      As your Pilot's levels goes up, your Balance range gets greater. These are 
      the exact levels required to get to a Balance Value.
    
    Lv  1 = Ratio 1
    Lv  6 = Ratio 2
    Lv 11 = Ratio 3
    Lv 21 = Ratio 4
    Lv 31 = Ratio 5
    
      It is theorized that each bar represents a 5% acurracy jump from the 
      neighboring bar on the Balancer. Many thanks goes to Sparkster for the 
      various information.
    
      Pharsti will also comment on Cage if he performs something consecutively 
      for 10 times.
    
    
    Some of Pharsti's interesting lines:
    (Note: none of these lines are whole. Only the part which applies to the 
    situation at hand is included here.)
    
    Esc set to maximum; 10 consecutive avoids:
      "Excellent job. The Balancer is functioning optimally also."
      "It is partly due to the assistance of the escape setting, but this is 
      still a commendable result."
    
    Def set to maximum; 10 consecutive avoids:
      "I see you have grown accustomed to this. Excellent maneuvering."
      "Cage, you have the innate ability to work well with Orbital Frames."
    
    Hit set to maximum; 10 consecutive hits:
      "Provided you have not used any dirty tricks to obtain this result, it 
      is entirely commendable."
    
    Pow set to maximum; 10 consecutive hits:
      "This is the best result we could have hoped for, given the circumstances."
    
    
    Here are some theories provided by Sparkster:
    --
    OK, each bar on the Balancer represents a 5% change from the middle 
    yellow bar. For Hit and Esc, this change is relatively simple--
    one movement to the right would add 5% to a character's 
    offensive Hit % in battle and would take away 5% from an enemy's Hit % 
    in battle. One movement to the left would take away 5% offensively and 
    give an enemy 5%.
    
    Example #1: At Lv17, Cage has an 80% chance of hitting a Lv10 Sp.Soldier 
    with his Rusty Lancer if his AtkBalancer is in the middle. Three bars to 
    the right, his chance would be 95%; three bars to the left, his chance 
    would be 65%.
    
    Example #2: A Lv10 Sp.Soldier has a 41% chance of hitting Cage (at Lv17) 
    with his Laser Blade if Cage's EscBalancer is in the middle. Three bars 
    to the right, that chance would be 26%; three bars to the left, that 
    chance would be 56%.
    
    Pow and Def are a bit more complicated, since Atk values are numbers 
    instead of percentages. However, the idea is still the same. Taking 
    the middle yellow bar's Atk value as the average, one movement to the 
    right would decrease a character's attack by 5% and increase an enemy's 
    attack by 5%. One movement to the left would increase a character's 
    attack by 5% and decrease an enemy's attack by 5%.
    
    Example #3: At Lv17, Cage hits a Lv10 Sp.Soldier with his Rusty Lancer 
    for 1759 if his AtkBalancer is in the middle. Three bars to the right, 
    that value would decrease 15% to 1495; three bars to the left, that 
    value would increase 15% to 2022.
    
    Example #4: A Lv10 Sp.Soldier hits Cage (at Lv17) with his Laser Blade 
    for 621 if Cage's EscBalancer is in the middle. Three bars to the right, 
    that value would increase 15% to 714; three bars to the left, that value 
    would decrease 15% to 527.
    
    That's more or less how the Balancer works. 
    --

    IAS, Attacking and Defending
    ----------------------------
    
      Note that the IAS will not trigger at all if no Allied units are involved 
      in the Combat.
    
    Accuracy:
    
    Whenever a Unit attacks,
    Accuracy = Attacking Pilot's Hit Value - Defending Pilot's Avoid Value
    
    Weapon accuracy bonuses, as well as Terrain, will also affect this if 
    applicable. Balance is also applied here.
    
    The resulting accuracy will affect the Target Range of the IAS, when 
    applicable. Higher accuracy means larger Target Area of the IAS.
    
    When attacking, the higher your accuracy, the bigger the target area, 
    the easier it is to hit. When attacking, the higher your enemy's accuracy, 
    the bigger the target area, the harder it is to avoid.
    
    
    Time Limit:
    [
    Whenever IAS is triggered, there is a Time Limit.
    
    When allied units are Attacking, the time limit is:
    
      Allied Attacking Unit's Reflex minus(-) Enemy Defending Unit's Reflex.
    
      Take this result, divide it by 10. Then add it to 8.
    
      The final result is the time limit in terms of seconds for the IAS.
    
    When allied units are defending,the time limit is:
    
      Enemy Attacking Unit's Reflex minus(-) Allied Defending Unit's Reflex.
    
      Take this result, divide it by 10. Then add it to 6.
    
      The final result is the time limit in terms of seconds for the IAS.
    
    If attack is not executed when the time runs out, it automatically misses.
    ]
    
      E.g. Cage (Reflex 130), is fighting an Unmanned Raptor(Reflex 120)
      When Cage Attacks, his time limit is:
      130 - 120 = 10
      10 / 10 = 1
      8 + 1 = 9
      The time limit for attack is 9 Secs.
      When the Raptor attacks Cage, the time limit is:
      120 - 130 = -10
      -10 / 10 = -1
      6 + (-1) = 5
      The time limit for evasion is 5 Secs.
    
    --
    Additional information:
    
    If the central target hits the Weakness of an Enemy, a Critical hit will 
    happen, which will make it 1.5 times as much damage.
    
    A larger Weakness means more ease in a Critical hit.
    
    The damage to be dealt is shown to you when a unit targets another, on the 
    attacks screen before the IAS is triggered. Use this to figure out how much 
    damage you want to deal.
    --
    
    
    -----
    
    Spirit
    ------
    
    Each Pilot's spirit at the start of each battle by default is 0.
    
    A Pilot of gains +5 Spirit everytime his/her unit destroys an opposing unit.
    
    A Pilot of gains +1 Spirit everytime his/her unit is hit by an attack.
    
    An allied unit which you used Supply (Replenish Ability) on, will lose 5 Spirit.
    
    For each spirit a Unit has, he/she can take 4 or 5 damage lesser. And for 
    each spirit a Unit has, he/she can deal around 20 more damage. Exact 
    figures are unknowned. Spirit seems to affect damage dealt and received by 
    value rather than by proportion. (Another hypothesis I have
    is that Spirit affects damage depending on the Pilot's level.)
    
    There are certain events which may raise a Pilot's Spirit.
    
    There are occasions where it is possible to be at a negative (-) Spirit.
    
    You cannot carry over your Spirit into the next battle except for certain 
    battles.

    25 Scene Path / 24 Scene Path
    -----------------------------
    
    To get to the 25 Scene Path, you must:
    1) In Scene 10, you must rescue all the hostages before Turn 10.
    2) In Scene 12, you must destroy 7 or more Unmanned A.
    If you did this correctly, you will be going to the 25 Scene Path.
    
    
    If you did not rescue all the hostages before Turn 10, or if you destroy 6 or 
    less Unmanned A in Scene 12, you will be going to the 24 Scene Path.
    
    
    In both Scene Paths, it is possible to get either Twede, or Nadia.

    Hints and Tips
    --------------
    
    Using the IAS:-
    [
    A good way to use the IAS when attacking, is to sit still. Wait for the enemy 
    Mech to move close enough, then immediately move the target area onto it and 
    press "A".
    
    A good way to use the IAS when defending, is to keep rotating around in 
    circles. Just keep moving the target round and round. No need to worry about 
    the enemy approaching you. Don't make the circle too big or too small. 
    Once the time limit ends, the attack will miss.
    
    Effective use will ensure evading attacks even if they have 100% chance of 
    hitting, and always hitting the target enemy regardless of accuracy.
    ]
    
    
    
    Replaying a Scene Battle:- 
    [
    Just like in most Super Robot Wars, if you get Game Over, you will start 
    this battle over again, still retaining all your Money and Experience.
    
    Even better, you don't even have to get a Game Over. Just simply choose to 
    Retreat and you will start the battle again, retaining the Money and 
    Experience.
    ]
    
    
    
    High Experience and Level Growth:-
    [
    Whenever you meet a boss with high levels, you should start attacking this 
    boss with your weakest weapons possible. Every time you hit an enemy with 
    level higher than yours, you get major experience. So hit the high-level 
    boss with low-power attacks as much as possible, and you'll gain plenty of 
    experience. If the boss is going to retreat when his/her HP runs low,
    try to finish off with a strong attack if possible.

    Choosing between Nadia or Twede
    -------------------------------
    
    Note that for this following section, the information is still under heavy 
    testing. Most of the information have been confirmed and found to be true.
    
    
    ----
    
    24 Scene Path -
    
    On Scene 20, the second stage of the oxygen plant, Deckson is in the Vjaya 
    and there is a battle against Nadia, who is piloting a Scarmiglione. 
    
    To get Nadia, you must trigger a cinematic scene between Deckson and Nadia. 
    To trigger this scene, you must have Deckson's Frame beside Nadia's Frame 
    (in other words, on any of the surrounding squares of Nadia's frame), 
    when her HP is low (around less than 30%), or when her frame is destroyed. 
    You can also attack her with Deckson. If Deckson attacks her, and reduces
    her HP to less than 30%, but does not destroy her, you will also trigger the 
    Scene.
    
    So you can either:
    1) Move Deckson's Frame next to Nadia's Frame. Then reduce her HP to a low 
    value, or destroy her frame.
    2) Reduce Nadia's HP to a low value, then Deckson's Frame next to Nadia's 
    Frame.
    3) Attack Nadia with Deckson, and reduce her HP to less than 30% but does 
    not destroy her.
    
    If you do this correctly, a long dialogue between Nadia and Deckson will 
    show up. Nadia will join you and be the pilot of Vjaya after this battle.
    
    If you do not get the event scene, Nadia will not join, and Twede will 
    pilot Vjaya instead.
    
    Note: After the Battle is over, Deckson's Frame will automatically move 
    towards Nadia's frame. This does not count. You will have to move Deckson to 
    Nadia before the battle is over.
    
    ----
    
    25 Scene Path -
    
    You must not kill Nadia's Frame in Scene 09.
    
    She will join in Scene 16.
    
    (This condition is not needed for the 24 Scene Path.)
    
    At the end of Scene 09, the quotes will change depending on whether you 
    destroyed Nadia's Frame or not:
    
    If you destroyed Nadia's Frame, you will skip to the part where Myona 
    immediately asks Cage if he let her go.
    
    If you did not destroy Nadia's Frame, there will be some conversations 
    between Cage, Semyl, Yukito and Razma, asking him why Cage let Nadia go.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    --------------------------
    
    -----
    Q: I noticed that for many OFs, I see a Lv sign under their shell. What is 
       this for?
    
    A: All OFs will have this. OFs have the capabilities of leveling up. Check 
       the OFs section under Basics and Mechanics for more details.
    
    -----
    Q: Is it possible to get Nadia instead of Twede for both Scene Paths?
    
    A: Yes it is. Check the above Section for details.
    
    -----
    Q: Am I currently in the 24 Scene Path or 25 Scene Path?
    
    A: I really can't answer this question for you. But I suggest checking 
       DEngel's guide for full details.
    
    -----
    Q: I have just completed Scene 12. How do I know which Scene Path will I be 
       going to?
    
    A: If Cubick says, "We Won!", and Palme says, "You were so close to 
       attracting good fortune." it means you will be heading to the 24 Scene Path.
       If Cubick says, "We lost.", and Palme says, "I'm just following the 
       natural order.", and she gives you the data log of the Bonaparte, 
       you will be heading to the 25 Scene Path.
    
       Scene 10 may also affect the quotes here. How, I do not know yet.
    
    -----
    Q: Is there really a 28 Scene Path?
    
    A: No there isn't. It's just bullshit. 
       This is a rumour started by some unnamed jerk. Do not believe it.
    
    -----
    Q: I heard that I can get new weapons if I get above level 50. Is this true?
    
    A: Another bullshit. The highest level you can ever get is 4 levels higher 
       than the highest level enemy in the game. Which is around 48. Technically, 
       you can get above that, but it will take tonnes of battles. You can try, 
       but you will be disappointed.
    
    -----
    Q: In Super Robot Wars, sometimes, when you upgrade a weapon to the Maximum, 
       you get a new weapon. Can the same be done for this game?
    
    A: Sorry, it doesn't work here.
    
    -----
    Q: Is Phil really a guy? The Instructions Manual say Phil is a girl, but 
       the Character Reference say Phil is male.
    
    A: Yes, he is. Or so they say... Quite frankly, I don't know what to believe.
    
       Some people say he is simply a bishounen, that means, a pretty boy.
    
       Some people claims that Phil is a bisexual. There are no definite claims.
    
    -----
    Q: Should I upgrade the Edge?
    
    A: After you get the Calibur, you won't get to use the Edge again, so it is 
       not recommended for you to upgrade it.
    
    -----
    Q: Should I upgrade the Blade?
    
    A: All upgrades on the Blade, will be carried over to the Calibur. It is 
       worth it.
    
    -----
    Q: Should I take the 24 Scene Path or 25 Scene Path?
    
    A: I would recommend you to take the 25 Scene Path. You get the Nerokerubina.
    
    -----
    Q: Will you add in the Item lists?
    
    A: Actually, there are only 3 types of items in existence, and their effects 
       are pretty self-explanatory. The Booster Pack, Repair Kit and Supply Pack.
    
    -----
    Q: Should I use the IAS?
    
    A: Of course. Getting used to it means always hitting a target, and never 
       getting hit. Some people view it as a challenge to not use the IAS. 
       I won't recommend disabling the IAS if you are playing for the first time. 
       It's likely the enemy can wipe the floor with you if you don't use IAS, 
       so don't be surprised.
    
    -----
    Q: For getting Nadia on the 25 Scene Path, is it possible that the battle 
       in Scene 16 is a factor of getting Nadia?
    
    A: No. Regardless of how you perform in Scene 16, whether you took down all 
       the enemies, or only the leader, the outcome of whether you get Nadia or 
       Twede, will not be changed. It does not matter.
       (I have 2 responses telling me about this affecting Nadia. This is not 
       true, and it doesn't work. Kindly get your facts right first before 
       sending them to me.)
    
    -----
    Q: Will you be including Stats gain for Pilots?
    
    A: Unfortunately, even I do not fully understand the stats gain. It's going 
       to take a long time for me to figure that out. All I know is that the 
       stats gain are fixed. Each level up, the pilot gains around 1 - 4 of 
       stats points of Battle, Shoot, Avoid and Hit. Reflex never changes.
    
    -----
    Q: Is the HarutMarut really an OF?
    
    A: Yes, it is an OF, despite the game descriptions. LEVs shouldn't be able 
       to fly, an the fact that HarutMarut has a Lv value, is a dead giveaway 
       that HarutMarut is an OF. The game descriptions have been wrong before. 
       The Cyclops was an example. It is slow and tough, not fast and fragile 
       like the game said. The HarutMarut being an OF is a FACT, not an OPINION.
    
    -----
    Q: Why did you list out Ifrit as an OF Mimic?
    
    A: First, it functions similarly to that of an OF, but as far as I am 
       concerned, it is NOT an OF. This is because it does not have the 
       capability of maturing/levelling up, and that it can equip items, 
       unlike true OFs. It is more of an LEV that is capabable of flying, rather 
       than an OF that is incapable of levelling up. It's power output is 
       much higher than most OFs, though. 
    
    -----
    Q: How can you tell if the enemy can equip items?
    
    A: It's really simple. On the Mech Status Screen, the right-hand side is a 
       listing of Items and Abilities. If this column is seperated into 2 
       sections, it means that it can use Items. The top section is for Items, 
       bottom section for Abilities. However, if there is only one column, and 
       no seperate sections, it means it can only have Abilities, and cannot 
       use Items. No Items also means no Garage Upgrades.
    
        This is a rough sketch of the screen:
          -------------------------------------
          | Unit Status                       |
          -------------------------------------
          |    Unit Stats     |    Items      |  <-- If the Unit cannot equip 
          |    Picture        |               |      items, this will be just be 
          |    Name/Type      |---------------|      one column, for Abilities only.
          |                   |   Abilities   |
          |     HP & EN       |               |
          -------------------------------------
       
    
    -----
    Q: What mechs are present in the 24 Scene path, but not the 25 Scene Path?
    
    A: The Ifrit and the HarutMarut2.
    
    -----
    Q: Is it just me, or does this game resemble Super Robot Taisen?
    
    A: Actually, from what I know, partner creators with Konami for this game,
       used to be part of the first few series of Super Robot Taisen.
    
       It is questionable of their quality. This game may be more realistic,
       but Super Robot Taisen is more fun. Since when is counterattacks, Seishin
       or extreme HP bosses realistic anyway?
    
    -----
    Q: I am writing my own FAQ. Can I use the facts you provided in your guide?
    
    A: You may, only if you ask me, and I grant you permission. If I do not 
       grant you permission, or if you didn't contact me, you may not use facts 
       that are in my guide. YOU MUST CONTACT ME.
    
    -----
    Q: I have some things I want to add, and I have a few questions. Can I email 
       you?
    
    A: What are you waiting for? Send it in. 
    
       Comments, suggestions, questions, facts, clarifications, just send them in 
       to me. No need to hesitate. (Just make sure they are not misinformation.)
    
       If you can confirm, correct, or detail some of the facts here, you are 
       welcomed to do so. If you know of facts which I don't, make sure you send 
       them in. If you have queries and such, you can always contact me, though 
       it will certainly be much better to go to the GameFAQs board, where other 
       people can answer your question.

    Note: Just ignore this section if you only need Gameplay information. This 
          section has nothing regarding Gameplay which you might need.
          You should however, read this section if you intend to contact me.
    
    
    Copyright Info-
    
    Do not sell for profits, etc. Do not copy off sections without permission,

    Contact Information-
    
       First, make sure your Email has a subject. If your Email does not have a 
       subject, there's a 90% it will get sent to the Junk Folder, where it will 
       never be read, so don't be surprised if there is no reply from me.
    
       Also note that I check my Hotmail account more frequently. But it is 
       often overflowed, compared to my Yahoo account, so I may miss a few mails.
    
       You are likely to get a faster response from me if you visit the GameFAQs 
       GBA ZOE-FOM board. If I am around, I'll send in a response.
    
       Note that I do not take misinformation kindly. Please check that your 
       information is true, and ask questions that are not answered here. I 
       detest misinformation and I WILL NOT TOLERATE IT.
    
       Note that I do accept criticisms, just make sure they don't contain things 
       like "YUR faq Sux n U R a st00p1d 1d10t!!1!1!11! 1 0wnz j00!!!" I'll 
       just block off your email if you do so. I accept criticisms, positive or 
       negative, just try to make them constructive. I won't accept 
       blind insults. There's a difference between criticisms and flames.
    
       If you can confirm, correct, or detail some of the facts here, you are 
       welcomed to do so. If you know of facts which I don't, make sure you send 
       them in. If you have queries and such, you can always contact me, though 
       it will certainly be much better to go to the GameFAQs board, where other 
       people can answer your question.
    
       If you send in misinformation, I will block off your email. The truth is, 
       I had been too lenient with misinformation than I really should have been.
    
    
    Note-
    
    DO NOT SEND IN MAIL TELLING ME THE FOLLOWING:
     HarutMarut is a LEV.
     Scene 16 can determine if you get Nadia.
     LEVs can fly.
    
    I regard stuff like this to be misinformation. Do not expect courteous 
    responses from me if you tell me that.
    
    If you are going to send me "Facts", make sure the facts are direct from 
    this game. I don't want to hear about the facts you discovered when you 
    watched the Anime, or when you played the ZOE game on the PS2. And I don't 
    want to hear what you found out when you read the dialogue between Razma 
    and Semyl this game either, and I certainly don't need people to tell me that
    many of the characters as well as the Mech reference point out the HarutMarut 
    as a LEV. I don't need storyline discoveries. 
    
    I want pure Gameplay Facts.
    
    If you do not comply with the rules, then I will simply block off your email.
