    your party and run away fast. You get valuable treasures and a lot of 
    experience and gold by defeating them. So now you must be prepared and 
    have plans to kill them. I'll list in this FAQ everything you need to do

    I. ITEMS----------------------------------------------------------------->
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
         
         1. Magic Signet Stone: This item blocks your opponent's moves for 
    three turns. It's located at the swamp in the Marshlands - you have to 
    take the little boat and then go left to the second screen. It will be in 
    one of the boxes. * This item is the most important. You won't be able to 
    kill any special monster with out it, except if you use a sachet*
    
         2. Sachet: This item kills any of the special monsters instantly; it 
    does 10 hp of damage, and all the special monsters have 4-6 hp. You can 
    get this item the first time at Hellena's Prison (second visit) in a box 
    before a fight with a boss. Defeat the boss and he will give you another 
    sachet. The last one is located at the valley of corrupted gravity. If you 
    want more you can fight Piggies at the home of Giganots, but they rarely 
    drop it.
    
         3. Poison Needle: This item poisons your opponent. You can buy it at 
    the third and fourth disk in many towns and on the Moon.
    
         4. Panic Bell: This item confuses your opponent. You can buy it at 
    Ulara and on the Moon.
    
    ==========================================================================

    II. EQUIPMENT------------------------------------------------------------>
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
         1. Bandit's Ring: Found in home of Giganots, and bought from various 
    towns later in the game. This item increases your speed by 20 points.
    
         2. Bandit's Shoes: I only have one of these. I think you can get them 
    after a fight with a boss at the home of Giganots. This item increases 
    your speed by 20 points.
    
         3. Magical Grieves: You can buy them from Ulara later in the game. 
    This item increases your speed by 10 points.
    
         4. Dancer's Shoes: This item is for the female characters only. You 
    can buy this item from Denningard later in the game. It increases your 
    speed by 20 points.
    
         5. Wargod's Amulet: You find them at the beginning of the game. I 
    think that the cursed jar or some other monster near the yellow bird drops 
    it. This item increases your attack hit-rate by 20%.
    
         6. Sallet: You can buy them from Bale and you also come equipped with 
    it from the beginning of the game. This item increases your attack hit-
    rate by 10%. 
    
    
    ==========================================================================
    .5. SPECIAL MONSTERS----------------------------------------------------->
    ==========================================================================
    
    To defeat the special monsters you need to equip all the members of your 
    party with the right equipment and have the right items in hand. I suggest 
    that your party have the following characters: Dart, Shana and Rose or 
    Haschel. I also suggest that you fight three or four random battles before 
    the fight with the special monster, so that the special monster doesn't 
    run away at the beginning of the battle, or cast a powerful magic on you. 
    Here are all the special monsters and how to defeat them:
         
         A. Yellow Bird: It is located on the road to the Indles Castle 
    capital Bale. When you start the battle with it, do 1 hp of damage to it, 
    and then, with the next player use the magic signet stone. After that, 
    just keep attacking it until it is dead. If you managed to defeat it, you 
    will receive 300 gold and sometimes it drops an Elude Cloak. It has 4 hp.
    
         B. Cursed Jar: It is located on the little road between Lohan and the 
    Dragon Nest. Do the same process you did to the yellow bird. Sometimes, 
    when you start the battle it may cast a physical attack barrier, so just 
    keep attacking it until you do 1 hp of damage. After that, do the rest of 
    the process done to the Yellow Bird. If you managed to defeat it, you will 
    receive 300 experience points. It has 4 hp.
    
         C. 00 Parts: It is located on the long road near the commercial city 
    of Lohan. When you start off the battle, do 1 or 2 hp of damage to it, and 
    then let the other character use the magic signet stone. After that, just 
    keep attacking it until it dies. If you managed to defeat it, you will 
    receive 600 gold. It has 4 hp.
    
         D. Blue Bird: It is located on the road between the valley of 
    corrupted gravity and the home of Giganots. When you get into battle with 
    it, do 2 hp of damage to it. Next, use the magic signet stone. After that 
    just keep attacking it until it dies. If you managed to defeat it, you 
    will receive 1000 experience points. It has 5 hp.
    
         E. Treasure Jar: It is located on the road between the undersea 
    cavern and the city that faces it. You can't do damage to it except if you 
    use dragoon magic. So, the first thing you'd want to do when you start the 
    battle is to transform into dragoon with the first character, and use the 
    first magic type on the list because it doesn't cost much mp and it will 
    do the same damage as the other ones. Next, if it used a magical attack 
    barrier use the magic signet stone. If it didn't, transform into dragoon 
    with the other character and use magic to do another 1 hp of damage. After 
    that, use the magic signet stone and keep casting magic on it until it 
    dies. If you managed to defeat it, you will only receive a Ruby Ring which 
    you can sell for a lot of gold. It has 5 hp.
    
         F. Red Bird: It is located on the road that leads to two ways; one to 
    Denningard and the other one to the Glacier. You can't do damage to it 
    except if you use dragoon magic. But, it doesn't cast a magical attack 
    barrier, so let the first two characters use dragoon magic on it then let 
    the third one use the magic signet stone. After that, just keep using 
    magic on it until it dies. If you managed to defeat it you will receive 
    1000 gold plus a Phoenix Plume. It has 5 hp.
    
         G. Lucky Jar: It is located on the road between the desert in the 
    Death Frontier and Ulara *Sometimes, you will face a Rainbow Bird but most 
    of the times it will be a Lucky Jar*. First of all, have 2 poison needles 
    in your item grid, and then get into battle with it. Next, use one poison 
    needle on it and let it do 2 hp of damage to itself. After that, use the 
    magic signet stone, and just keep guarding until it dies by poisoning. If 
    you managed to defeat it, you will receive 1000 experience points, 300 
    gold and a Moon Serenade. It has 6 hp.
    
         H. Rainbow Bird: It is located on the road to Rouge while you are on 
    the Queen of Fury. First of all, have at least 3 panic bells in your item 
    grid and then get into battle with it. Use 1 of the panic bells you have 
    on it and let it do 4 attacks - To itself or to your party - and then use 
    another panic bell. After that, just keep guarding until it dies by 
    confusion (This is the hardest battle of all, so if you don't have the 
    patience just use a sachet and it will die instantly). If you managed to 
    defeat it, you will receive a whopping 3000 experience points. It has 4 
    hp. 
    
         I. Triceratops: It can be found on the Moon. It is on the way to the 
    place where you fight the Darkness Dragon. The Triceratops is different 
    from the other special monsters. It doesn't have 4-6 hp; it has 6000+ hp. 
    It doesn't run away from the battle. You don't need to use a magic signet 
    stone or a sachet to defeat it. So, you need your strongest attack and 
    defense weapons to beat it - It's not that tough, the Rainbow Bird is 
    harder -. When you start off the battle, just keep attacking it with all 
    your power and heal your party if they reached red status. If you managed 
    to defeat it, you will receive 2000 experience points and 100 gold, so 
    GOOD LUCK!
