INTRODUCTION:

Final Fantasy VIII, as with all the Final Fantasy Series, gives the 
characters the option of stealing items from enemies during battle.  
This ability is VERY useful, since in most cases it is the ONLY way
of acquiring rare items.  Such is the case with Final Fantasy VIII.
The GF Diablos can learn the abiltiy "Mug" early on in the game (if 
you learn how to manage efficiently the AP(Ability Points) received 
early on in the game.  This ability is indeed useful throughout the 
duration of the game; it NEVER loses its worth.  The efficiency the
characters have while mugging depends on SEVERAL factors:
   (1) The level of the character and the level of the enemy.
   (2) The evade percentage of the enemy.
   (3) The speed of the character.
The higher the level of the character in terms of the enemy's level,
the better his chances of mugging the enemy.  As a character's level
further exceeds that of his enemy, he will be able to mug MORE items
from his opponent. (**EXCEPTION**: Regardless of a character's level
he will ALWAYS mug the same amount of items from a BOSS!)  The speed
and evasion percentage of a monster also affects the result.  Higher
statistics in this area not only make the enemy harder to hit with a
phyisical attack, but also reduces the chances of mugging the enemy, 
AND (if the mugging is successful) reduces the amount of items taken
from the opponent.

***** If you mug an enemy then turn it into a card, you may get both 
mugged items and battle spoils that are normally found after a fight

 -- Bosses are marked with a "(!)"

 -- Since items mugged from bosses always appear in the same amounts 
    regardless of the level of the character at the time of the battle, 
    the parenthesis  indicated the number of items the can be mugged.

 -- *** Mobile Type 8 is one of the few monsters in the game that drops
        a Power Generator.  BE SURE to mug him (however low the chance
        to get the item)  you can also try the Blitz's for luck)

VERSION INFO:


v1.00 (3-Oct-99)   -- First release.  The list is big for a version 1.00 
                      since I had the information beforehand and just 
                      now decided to write it up.  I'm looking forward 
                      to some contributions soon.

v1.01 (4-Oct-99)   -- Defeated Ultima Weapon (HURRAY!) ;)  so I decided 
                      to add what I stole from him and from all the 
                      monsters that were in his path.

v1.02 (4-Oct-99)   -- FIRST contribution.  Good info.  Thnx!

v1.1  (5-Oct-99)   -- Changed the format to make it more legible and 
                      easier on the eyes.  Also added more info.

v1.5  (20-Jan-00)  -- Haven't updated in a while, but now that I have I 
                      noticed that I am almost finished with this List!
                      I only need a few more contributions to complete 
                      it, so please send them over.

v1.51 (29-Jan-00)  -- Added a few more items to the list.

v1.6  (23-Feb-00)  -- Added more info, and I believe that my final 
                      release will be done soon. Only one or two empty 
                      spots (barring mistakes of course).

v1.61 (25-Jul-00)  -- Small update for Mobile Type 8
