Get an extra magic jewel
Columns Extra Magic Jewels
There is a way to trick the game into giving you a second magic jewel. To do this you must set up the screen in a certain way. Have one row of the normal jewels stacked up almost to the top of the playfield. There must be vertical space for only two of the three jewels in the next block to come on the screen. Watch the "Next Block" preview box. When you see that the magic jewel block is next, get ready to quickly move it on top of your prepared stack. After the magic jewel eliminates the 'touching' color jewels, all of the remaining jewels will drop down as will the one magic jewel that was off the screen. This magic jewel will drop down and eliminate another group of colored jewels.

Ecco: The Tides of Time Cheats
When you have control of Ecco and can pause, Try to pause while Ecco is facing you. Once Ecco is facing you, press A, B, C, B, C, A, C, A, and B. If you entered the code correctly, a menu will pop up with all sorts of optionssuch as a sound test, level select, tempo, etc. This code can be entered as many times as you'd like, as long as the game is paused while Ecco is facing you.
Unlimited Air and Health
Turn Ecco left or right and pause the game while Ecco is facing towards the screen. Press (A), (B), RIGHT, (A), (C), (A), DOWN, (A), (B), RIGHT, (A), and then unpause. You will now never die from lack of air or injuries.
Just entering the word easy mode in the password screen would work as a password. This difference it caused was it made certain lvl's much easier to complete like jumping certain spots in the game where you could easily lose in normal mode where no longer there. I am surprised no one ever thought about trying this code. I would always try and figure out codes and just enetered it one day when I was 12 years old. 16 years have passed and no one ever brought it up.

Crystal Springs glitch
On Crystal Springs, normally you would need to find a song to break the rocks to complete the level. However, the entire task can be skipped, just swim inbetween the bottom two rocks and keep tapping B and C, and wobbling the directional pad and you will pass straight through.
Dark Sea glitch
To skip a large portion of Dark Sea, when you have opened the first spiked gate below the save point, enter the ship and head left then down. In this room should be an invincibility crystal. Go to the very the top right corner of this room, then quickly swim left using B and C, and you should pass straight through the wall. Once you pass through, quickly swim to the upper left of the screen to avoid being crushed.
In the starting area break the two shells above you, and then swim through the tunnel to start the game in hard mode.

The Timeron's Secret: A Hidden Easter Egg.
During the 2nd Timeron encounter (which is in the Space Battle stage) a timer will begin ticking from 00'00''00.
As the timer keeps going, the Timeron's attacks will change, and at every 20 minutes or so, a circular drone will appear, accompanied by Smash Daisaku's laughter. Avoid this drone for about 2 minutes until it self-destructs, for a single hit will reduce your health to zero.
At about 50'00''00 or so, large blue balls will appear. These will rebound once against the screen, and do 11 points of damage instead of the normal 10 points from the smaller ones.
Once the timer gets up to 99'50''00 or so, don't destroy the Timeron yet. Instead, wait out the remaining 10 seconds whilst avoiding the Timeron's attacks, but don't stay too close to the Timeron, or you'll get killed by the drone.
Once the timer reaches 00'00''00 again, you'll hear that nasty laughter again, but this time, ''GIVE UP!!'' appears in the middle of the screen, and the Timeron will self-destruct, accompanied by the message, ''YOU OPENED THE - SATORI MIND -''.
A bit more of that nasty laughter accompanies the next message, ''REPROGRAMMED BY NAMI - 1993''.
Now, instead of getting a Timer Bonus like you usually would, a Soul Bonus of exactly 930410 points is added to your score. That might be the date that Nami reprogrammed the Timeron, I believe.

Avoid Party Members
The game forces you to allow Tao, Ken, Lowe, Hans, and Luke to join the party before the first battle of the game. There is a way to avoid getting these characters in your party. To do this, when in town at the opening of the game there is a gate but two guards will stop you if you try to leave. There is a blond man in a purple vest near the gate and if you stand one space above him, you will eventually force him to step in the path of one of the guards. At this time you can run past and exit the gate and the guard will not be able to block you. This will send you to the first battle with only Max, making the game quite difficult. Also, even though you avoid taking these characters in your party, they will still speak during some of the cut scenes.
Get Adam without defeating Chaos
Before the battle against Chaos is over, cast egress. Adam will be at HQ, and will be battle-ready. Normally you would have to speak to him after the battle, giving you the chance to miss recruiting him.

Random numbers aren't random
Trying to get that spell to always hit or get that +4 on all your power up items, but you just can't seem to get the random to work for you? Well I discovered the counter to the random number generator is the number of steps taken.
Say you save your game and use an item for a stat increase. Well if its not what you wanted, reload and take one more step befor using it. The pattern I noticed was something like 2, 3, 2, 3, 3, 2, 4. Thus taking 5 steps gave me my +4. This works for spells that don't hit very often. Fun with desoul.

Boost L2 level up Trick
When one of your characters learns the spell Boost and gets it to level 2, use it and make sure you get your ENTIRE party in range. This will give 49 Exp. to the one who casted Boost L2 REGUARDLESS of what level anybody may be in (which is, like killing a formitable monster that might be much stronger than you). Then, when the Boost effect wears off, you can repeat this sequence and easily get to level 99!
Fairy Village leveling with control enemy on.
If you put in the code to control enemies in the Fairy Village, previously known to the public, they would not spawn. To get around this, start the battle as normal without the code on. Have a teammate block the appropriate spots to prevent the stronger enemies from spawning if needed. Afterwards, have someone run to a spot that spawns the enemy you wish to farm. Wait your turn so it can spawn. As soon as it spawns, on your very next turn, save and quit. Enter the code and select control enemies. Make sure this is after the enemy has spawned. Restart the game. Enjoy. You may now control very strong enemies that infinitely respawn. If you decide to spawn an enemy in a different spot, just do the same. For example, you use this to farm lesser demons but haven't spawned a Mist Demon, you must reset the game with control enemy off and allow it to spawn, then save mid battle to get control over them, to allow them to respawn.

Quick levels for healers
Give a healer any HP restoring item (I.e. Medical Herb), and use it on themself. This will garner a quick 10 experience points for the healer. If you don't have herbs, use Heal 1 until you run out of MP. You could possibly have Heal 4 and Blast 4 for Sarah before you even finish the first battle in the game if you do it right. Also, if you use Aura and have 3 or more people in the targeted range, the healer will get 25 experience for their effort. If you use Detox on one, the healer will only get 5 experience. Make sure to do this trick if you want easy victories.

Pseudo Super Sonic
In Oil Ocean Zone, if you manage to take a hit and end up landing in one of those green-and-gold checkered cannons, you'll fall right out, but you'll be moving at twice your normal speed as well as jumping twice your normal height(with twice as much gravity). A good place for doing this would be in Oil Ocean Zone, Act 2, near the first set of pop-tops and cannons. Just jump into the semi-hidden bed of spikes on the right and land in the cannon.
Note: Moving at twice normal velocity can often get you stuck in a wall. Also, this wears off if you Super Spin Dash or Spin Dash. It also only lasts for that Act.

Normally, when you turn into super sonic you lose tails behind you all the time.
Well, after you put in the debug cheat and have started a level (preferrably Emerald Hill), turn yourself into a box and place it somewhere on the floor WHILE you are super sonic. It should be a switch places box. Hit it and you will see tails will have a permanent invincible circle around him. He will stay like this through the whole level, he will keep up with super sonic or even out run him. A very fun glitch for 2 players.

Keep re-equipping and removing the cursed item until your Strength/Armor Class goes to a ridiculous #, like 9999 or something like that.
