  Alright, writers of EGM, GamePro, other Game Mags, and plagiarizers,
you plagiarize, many people know that, you can be sued. If I find out
ANYTHING from any of my FAQs in a Game Magazine or in another FAQ w/o
my permission, I'm suing. It clearly states not to copy anything without
my FULL AUTHORIZATION unless put on a non-profitable/promotional Web
Page with the above Copyright Disclaimer.

  If I see any FAQs with information from mine, like I update my FAQ
with a lot of stuff, then another FAQ for Legend of Legaia is updated
one or two days afterwards and has the new stuff I put in my FAQ, I'm
going to tell Jay (the webmaster of GameFAQs) and you're FAQs will be
deleted. I already saw one FAQ like that, and I'm getting awfully
suspicious. One day after I updated this FAQ, some FAQ was sent in with
the information in this FAQ. Then I updated again, and guess what? That
FAQ was updated one day afterwards again, with the new information I put
in my FAQ.
  That author is probably plagiarizing, or maybe not, but it looks
awfully suspicious with similar information from this FAQ. I'm going to
keep looking at that FAQ, and once I have proof, that FAQ is going down!
Don't plagiarize, it's stupid, and proves that you are stupid and can't
think of your own stuff. Even if the author of that one FAQ isn't
plagiarizing, he/she is still stealing information from my FAQ. You
could at least ask before stealing information. 

  The only thing allowed would be to print this document for personal or
private use. Okay, if you have WordPad, save this document somewhere,
open WordPad, go to Page Setup or something like that, then change the
margins to: Left: 1"; Right: 0.3"; Bottom: 0.4"; Top: 0.4". This will
prevent some paper usage, also, you should change the font, if you can
tolerate it, and make major changes. But if not, oh well. Oh yea, and
take out unnecessary things, like this section here, the disclaimer, the
beginning, Author Information, the section just below this place,
updates, etc. Just a few tips for you people.

Trap thing made of stone).

Version 0.4 4/10/99:
  Wow! That's a lot of E-mail I received about my FAQ, more than I
expected. Anyway, a lot of people E-mailed about the Point Card, three
concerning the Legendary Rod, and one about the Platinum Card. I'd like
to thank all of them, and they are in the Special Thanks section. I
changed one thing about gaining AP, added the Platinum Card, and, not
really anything else. You can check the Special Thanks section for who
has E-mailed me.

Part 2: What is Legend of Legaia, anyway? (General Details)
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  Legend of Legaia is an above average RPG with a battling system very
similar to other battling systems of RPGs combined together. It's like
Xenogears with Wild Arms, not exactly, but very close. The magic system
is also similar to FFVIII, in the terms you can't get Magic by getting
items and leveling up, but in the world of Legaia, only certain monsters
have Magic, and those monsters are actually the Magic. They are Seru,
elemental Seru, that is. You have to kill them without Magic and with a
physical attack, but you won't always get it. It's a pretty good RPG
loaded with lots of fun, for some areas. You have to experience it for
yourself.

Part 3: Plot/Storyline
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  God created the heavens, the earth, and the seas. After creating all
things in the universe, god created humans to rule over this world. Yet,
while possessing the wisdom of god, humans were physically weaker than
the wild beasts, and impulsive in spirit. Many times did the humans come
close to dying out forever. Concerned about the humans' future, god gave
them a mighty force with which to aid them. It was the Seru.
  Since the dawn of human memory, known as history, humans lived
together with creatures known as the Seru. The Seru lived together with
humans, always obeying them, and making the humans many times stronger
than before. When not worn by a human, a Seru looks much like a stone
figure. However...Upon touching a human, a Seru changes form and gives
that human secret abilities. With a Seru, a human can lift extremely
heavy objects and even fly in the air. However, that era came to an end.
  Appearing from out of nowhere, the Mist covered the land, bringing to
an end the world of prosperous symbiosis between humans, rebelled
against them. The Seru began attacking humans at will. Seru that
attached themselves to humans controlled their minds and turned them
into evil beasts.
  As if forsaken by god, human civilization collapsed. It was the
twilight of humanity. Those who escaped the Mist inhabited the desolate
areas and protected each other. Now, their faint hope is their only
source of inspiration.

  As the main character, you will meet many characters: main, secondary,
etc. Each main character will gain a Ra-Seru, a holy Seru resistant of
the Mist. Most of this stuff is from the Instruction Manual of the U.S.
version of Legend of Legaia.
_________________________________
        4.1: Vahn
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Element Attribute   Fire
 Element Weakness   Water
          Ra-Seru   Meta
  Best Hand Usage   Right
Best Weapon Types   Knife, Sword, Knuckle
              Age   Unknown (out of the three, he is in the middle)
Story:
  A young boy living with his father and younger sister in Rim Elm, a
remote village whose high walls keep the Mist out. Possessing a strong
sense of justice, Vahn is determined to uncover the true nature of the
Mist and free the world from its terror. After his fateful encounter
with the Ra-Seru Meta, he leaves his village to embark on a great
adventure.

  Vahn possesses a good balance between offense and defense in combat.
His statistics growth is average. Have a Ra-Seru of the Fire attribute,
Vahn cannot summon Seru of the Water element very skillfully. Water is
his ONLY weak point. Vahn is actually a very good character, if you do
the right attacks in battle.
_________________________________
        4.2: Noa
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Element Attribute   Wind
 Element Weakness   Earth, ?
          Ra-Seru   Terra
       Hand Usage   Left
Best Weapon Types   Claw, Feral
              Age   Unknown (the youngest of the three)
Story:
  Raised by a wolf in Snowdrift Cave, which miraculously escaped the
Mist, Noa is not very atriculate, but, on the other hand, possesses a
natural intuition and the ability to perceive evil. She is curious and
cheerful, but has an extreme dislike of being alone.

  With excellent agility and speed, Noa is very proficient at sequential
attacks. Her light, nimble body gives her excellent agility, but makes
her lacking somewhat in strength and upper defense. She is the only
left-handed character of the three. Because of her high agility, her
agility gauge contains a lot of space so you can execute many attacks in
on turn,amount of space you have to execute attacks, she can actually do
more damage than the other characters in the first third or so of the
game.

        4.3: Gala
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Element Attribute   Thunder
 Element Weakness   Earth, Water
          Ra-Seru   Ozma
       Hand Usage   Right
Best Weapon Types   Club, Mace
              Age   Unknown (the oldest of the three)
Story:
  A warrior-monk of Biron: a faith centered on the belief in physical
and mental discipline through rigorous training. Having lost both
parents to the Mist when he was a child, Gala not only disavows the use
of Seru but also hates the Seru themselves. Even after attaining the
title of Master at the young age of 17, the ever-serious Gala continues
his rigorous training without pausing to celebrate this achievement.

  His well trained body delivers the most powerful attacks of the three.
On the other hand, his agility and speed ratings are low, and he is not
very skilled at combining Arts. Gala requires accessories to increase
his speed, otherwise, he'll be about the last to attack, as it is when
you first get him.

Part 8: Arts Lists
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  Each character has the same number of Arts, Hyper Arts, Super Arts,
and Miracle Arts. There are 11 Arts, three Hyper Arts, five Super Arts,
and one Miracle Arts. The AP usage of any type of Arts may vary
depending on the character. All Miracle Arts use 99 AP.
  There are about three ways to gain AP:

1) Getting hurt by an opponent [you gain one AP for losing every 14 HP
   (approximately, that is)]
2) Using a turn (Attack), as default, eight AP every turn;
3) Using Spirit, as default, 32 AP is gained.

  You can learn any Arts from people, or do them yourselves, except
Hyper Arts, which are learned from books. You get the first book for
each character in a Treasure Chest. The other two books are being held
by bosses, and you must defeat them to get the books. Vahn always gets
his book first, then Noa, then Gala. When you do Arts or Miracle Arts
anytime without learning them from someone, it is recorded in the Arts
list. Hyper Arts will be in the list when you use a book. Super Arts do
not go on your list, even if you do it. Super Arts don't go on your list
because, basically, they are mutliple Arts combos, but Super Arts just
have the Super Arts tacked on them. Super Arts have their own individual
AP usage, but the total is different.

**Read:
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
|  For the "AP" part, it's the AP only that Arts does. For Super Arts,
|a "/" will appear after a number, the one before the slash is how much
|AP that Arts does, but the one after the slash, it's the total AP the
|Super Arts uses, the "/" only applies to Super Arts, so it won't appear
|on any of the other Arts. Anyway, enough ranting.

Part 9: Magic (absorbing Elemental Seru)

  This section includes the Seru Magic Spells list and Explanation and
Tips on absorbing Seru.

        9.1: Tips and Stuff on Absorbing Seru
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  Ra-Seru are needed to absorb Seru, no human can. Absorbing strong
Elemental Seru is difficult because they are strong. You may have to
kill the Seru repeatedly to finally absorb it. So, if you don't absorb a
Seru after repeated tries in a certain area, try it later in the game in
another area. Once you have already absorbed a Seru, you can't do it
again.
**Also, the higher the level of an Elemental Seru, the easier it is to
absorb it.** Don't ask why, it just is. Also, if you have something
which would increase your chances of absorbing Seru, such as an Ivory
Book, equip it so you don't have to kill the Seru as much just to
absorb it.
  To absorb Elemental Seru, you must kill it physically. There are many
ways to kill Seru to absorb them:

1A) A certain type of Super Arts
1B) A certain type of Arts
2A) Another certain type of Arts
2B) Another certain type of Super Arts
2C) Hyper Arts
 3) A certain type of a physical hit
4A) Arts
4B) Super Arts
4C) Physical Hit
 5) Miracle Arts

  Starting from number one, it goes from the most likeliness of
absorbing Seru to the least likeliness. The "certain" type of 1A and 1B
is a Super Arts or Arts that ends with Down. You see, when you kill a
Seru and "blast it to the moon," it actually decreases your chance of
absorbing it! Blasting to the moon is when you kill an opponent, they
are launched in the air in the shape of an arc, or parabola. But Super
Arts and Arts that end with Down usually don't do that, but if it does,
the probably of absorbing is lessened, but not as much as if you did it
with another attack. The "certain" type for 2A and 2B is an Arts or
Super Arts that ends with "Arms," which is Left for Vahn and Gala while
it is Right for Noa. Hyper Arts always end with Arms, so it wasn't
necessary to put you needed to do a certain type of Hyper Arts.
  For the "certain" type of 1A and 1B, it is actually Love You (Super
Arts) and Tough Love (Arts) for Noa. The "certain" type for 2A and 2B
are Arts and Super Arts ending with Down for Noa.
  The "certain" type of a physical hit is a physical hit that is Arms.
Also, if you do too much damage to a Seru, the chances of absorbing are
also slimmed down. (Exp. Vahn does a Fire Blow, Power Punch combo
against a Seru with 1200 HP, the attack causes it to lose 1081, so it
has a little more than 100 HP left. Vahn does the same thing again, Fire
Blow, Power Punch, causing it to lose another 1000 something. He doesn't
absorb it because too much damage was dealt.)
________________________________________________________________________
**Your best chance of absorbing would be to make the Seru you are trying
to absorb critical with combos, then do the attack you will do to absorb
it. Or you can just Confuse it then do a Super Arts or whatever you want
to do to absorb the Seru.**

I will only list the Magic of Seru, not secret Ra-Serus, that's in the
section below this one.

Wind      Barra        Hell Dive         85    Attack Enemy
Evil      Juggernaut   Evil Seru Magic   255   Unknown Effect

  Note: Thunder is actually Lightning, but that's how it appears in the
Instruction Manual and game. And Juggernaut has an element (the symbol
is a fist), the thing you have to equip to summon it is Evil Talisman,
just like the Ra-Seru Spells: Earth Talisman, Water Talisman, etc. The
Evil Seru Magic spell is the same exact thing as Cort's Evil Seru Magic
spell, even the name.

Part 10: Arts Combos

  The combos below are just combos, in my opinion, good. If you don't
have enough Agility for these combos, just do parts of them, instead of
trying to do the whole thing. The Super Arts themselves are combos,
except the last Arts is replaced with a Super Arts, the Super Arts are
pre-programmed combos that do a extra damage.

talk to Saryu in Ratayu. He'll give you a key to the Juggernaut Room.
Inside the room is a Treasure Chest with the 'Evil Talisman'. If you
equip it, the wearer can summon the secret Evil Seru Juggernaut. This
is the "Knights of the Round" in the world of Legaia. At level 1, it
only does about 7,000 HP damage. It's rumored to do damage as high as
50,000! I'm assuming it increases defense against Juggernaut's and
Cort's attacks. If you can get it to Level 9 without using a GameShark,
congratulations, since it'll take years to get it to that level, and not
just because of it's high MP cost, but because it's so strong.

        11.2: Miscellaneous Secrets
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
______________________
1. Point Card
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  In Rim Elm, go to the only shop there, near Vahn's house, go upstairs
and check the drawer in the room all the way to the left near the bed
closest to the door. The drawer should be locked. But you can open it
later. After going to Hunter's Spring, you can return to Rim Elm and
the drawer's open. What's in it? A 'Point Card'. To get Points, well...
you get points when you buy something in a store, and the points you
receive are 5% of the price of what you bought. The 'Point Card' can be
used in battle. The Point Card is used to damage your enemies: one
point is one HP. If you have a lot of points on the Point Card, you can
do some major damage. You always use the max. points on the Point Card,
if it isn't over 9,999. If it is over 9,999, then the extra Points are
saved.
______________________
2. Platinum Card
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  The 'Platinum Card' can be found in Drake Castle. The 'Platinum Card'
allows you access to special items at stores. You find it in the Throne
Room, the left sideroom in the Throne Room. This is the room King Drake
was trapped in when he was a Seru. You can only get the Card after the
Mist is gone from this area. Anyway, go to the sideroom and search the
upper left-hand corner (something similar to a window there), then you
will have the 'Platinum Card'. This gives you access to special items at
certain shops. The special items will be in blue.
______________________
3. Camera Stone
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  The 'Camera Stone' (made of stone) is just a little extra fun, I
suppose. You can find it in Vidna to the right Pepe's house. It's just
used to take pictures of certain people. To see all of the pictures (you
can't produce pictures), you should use a fresh 'Camera Stone'. If a
'Camera Stone' breaks, just buy another one. One 'Camera Stone' can only
take five pictures before it breaks. Anyway, here are the people who
allow you to take their picture and how many pictures they take:

Rim Elm:
  - Mei: first time you take her pictures, five will be taken so the
    Camera will break; after you reach a certain point in the game, the
    next time you take her picture, only one will be taken

Vidna:
  - Little girl on beach takes a group picture of Vahn's Group: one
  - After getting Swimsuit, little girl on beach takes pictures of Noa
    in her swimsuit: different poses until Camera breaks
  - Girl in Swimsuit on Beach: one
  - Guy in Trunks next to girl: one
  - Guy in Machine Room, first floor: one
  - Lady who was a messenger for Hari (house with Biron Monks): one
  - Mrs. Danpas: one
  - Mr. Danpas: one
  - Old Man in what was Hot Spring: one

4. Speed Ring
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  The 'Speed Ring' increases your speed by 20%. You get it by taking
lessons from the Disco King in Sol Tower. After his lesson, if you get
400 Points or above, he'll say something like, "You're a natural born
dancer. You may even be one of the best in the Dancing Queen Contest."
The fifth time he is supposed to say it, which he doesn't, he'll say
something similar to this, "I can't teach you anymore dance moves."
He'll give you a 'Speed Ring' as a gift.
______________________
5. Speed Chain
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  The 'Speed Chain' gives you the first turn in battle. You get it by
winning the Dancing Queen Contest. Well, actually, you just have to get
over 500 Points while dancing, but since you usually get over 500
Points to win the contest, it seems better to say "Win the Dancing Queen
Contest." Anyway, after you get 500 Points, talk to the Disco King and
he'll give you the 'Speed Chain'. The 'Speed Chain' allows its wearer
to get the first turn in battle.
______________________
6. Chicken King
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  In the Muscle Dome, if you participate in the Coliseum Zone and run
away from the first fight of each difficulty, you will be given the
'Chicken King' accessory. This accessory, when worn, is an all accessory
and allows you to run away 100% all the time, except against bosses.
______________________
7. War God Icon
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  After you beat Jette's Absolute Fortress, go back to the Muscle Dome
and enter in the Coliseum Zone, difficulty Master. If you beat it, you
shall be granted the 'War God Icon'. This accessory allows you to have
two attack sequences (!two!) in one turn.
______________________
8. Muscle Dome stuff
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  In the Muscle Dome in Sol Tower, there are some very good items you
can exchange Coins for. The ones in yellow are good. The 'Lost Grail'
restores your HP to its max after you die, there are other accessories
and they're all useful and good, but you should see for yourself. The
'Evil God Icon' allows you to steal items from enemies. You steal items
the same way you absorb Seru.
______________________
9. Life Grail
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  You can buy this for 96,000 G in the Warehouse in Sol Tower, or you
can find it in a place after Sol Tower. The 'Life Grail' restores
one-tenth of the wearer's HP at the end of each turn.
______________________
10. Vitality Ring
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  When you first go to Karisto Station, there will be an 'Honest Man's
Store' or something like that. There is a kit you can buy 3,000 G. You
can just take it, but you shouldn't, you should be an "honest" person
and pay for it. So, to the left of the store is a tree, check it to get
3,000 G. Now you can pay for the kit without losing any money you had
before getting the 3,000 G from the tree. After the Mist is cleared,
come back here and talk to the owner of the store and he'll give you a
Vitality Ring. The Vitality Ring increases your Agility by 20%.
______________________
11. Magic Grail
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  The 'Magic Grail' restores one-tenth of the wearer's MP at the end of
each turn. You get it in Uru Mais after it is destroyed by Juggernaut.
It's in one of the holes where, before it was destroyed, you go through
to get a dream. Go to the outside of the black area, go right, up, and
keep holding up-left until you get to the end of the ripped area and
push X to get the 'Magic Grail'.
______________________
12. Soren Secrets book
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  When you are in the Floating Castle, there's a room with a big machine
in the middle and a switch in the most-north wall. When you pull the
switch, the top of the machine will move and some weird stuff can now be
seen. Check the weird stuff and you'll find the 'Soren Secrets' book. 
t's not really a secret, but then again, it's something that can't be
found very easily. When you give the book to a certain Soren, he'll
teach you Arts.
______________________
13. Devil Medallion
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  After you go to the Soren Camp, if you go back to Mt. Dhini's summit,
you'll fight Lapis, a secret boss. Lapis ambushes you from behind. Now
it's your time to fight it. But the problem with this boss is it is
difficult to beat because it drains your MP, you can't restore MP or
anything like that. Its attacks do more damage than the last boss. Be
careful, without Magic, it's going to be hard. If you manage to beat it,
you'll get the 'Devil Medallion'. An accessory that grants its wearer to
have the ability to attack from 0-15 Arts per attack, but the problem
is, you can't control the character when it is equipped!
  You don't need to be a high level to beat Lapis, but you should be at
at least level 40. Don't equip 'Lost Grail's, unless you have a lot of
Lost Grails. You shouldn't equip 'Life Grail's, unless your characters are
high levels (60+). You'll need a lot of 'Phoenix'es.
______________________
14. Something Good
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  I don't know anything about it except you find it at some point in the
game. The description of this item is 'Something Good'.
______________________
15. Seru Encounter
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  I don't know where you get it. When equipped, it increases the rate of
encountering Seru.
______________________
16. Mettle Goblet
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  At the very end of the game, in the area where you get the 'Ra-Seru
Thongs' (the Treasure Chest is in the area after the place where the Rim
Elm townspeople are, the area after that place doesn't look anything
that place), before you open the chest, check the big red cell-like wall
to the right of the Treasure Chest. There will be a 'Mettle Goblet'. The
'Mettle Goblet' allows the wearer to always have 100 AP

Part 12: Mini-Games

  There are some very fun mini-games in the world of Legaia. There are
only five, though. And four of them are in Sol Tower, one is in Vidna,
and the other one is found on the World Map.
_________________________________
        12.1: Wild Card
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  Wild Card is a Slot Machine game. It takes three Coins to play. You
have to push Square, Triangle, and Circle to try to get three in a row:
horizontally and diagonally. The secret is to push the button when you
see the seam on the reel. In other words, push the button of the
beginning of what you want to get when you see it on the visible gray
lines. If you get three Punch or Kick symbols in a row, you go to the
Bonus Game, which grants you money no matter what you get. Try to get
all "10s" in the middle. Remember, when you see the top of the 10 on the
line in the middle, push the button, start with Square, then Triangle,
then Circle, or any order you want, but one at a time. If you succeed,
you'll get 1,000 Coins!

        12.2: Fishing
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  Fishing is just a mini-game. You find fishing places in some places.
One is near Jeremi and Vidna. Another is east of Buma. You have to get
a 'Rod' to play. There are three different types of 'Fishing Rods', and
you can get the...

- 'Old Rod' in Vidna on the beach
- 'Deluxe Rod' by exchanging it in the Muscle Dome in Sol Tower
- Legendary Rod, in the Usha Research Center, after going to Uru Mais,
  talk to the guy eating spicy food, then check the area between two
  beds with a bear on one of the beds to get the 'Legendary Rod'

  The size of and the fish determine how many points you will earn. You
can exchange the points you earn, or save them for later to go to the
other Fishing Place to exchange the points for better prizes. The
'Legendary Rod' is the best. There are different types of Lures. One for
each type of water: Shallow, Normal, and Deep. You buy the Lures in
Vidna, in the building to the right of the Hot Springs. The guy with the
Wild Card machine, if you say "No" to his first question then "Yes" to
his second one, you can trade Coins for the Lures. Have fun!

        12.3: Baka Fighter
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  In Japanese, "baka" actually means "idiot," "stupid," or other stuff
you can say to ridicule someone. Anyway, the CPU you fight has a set
pattern, each different monster has a set pattern. But sometimes, when
you are doing too well, the CPU adds a button here and there to mess you
up. But the next attack should be part of the pattern, but sometimes it
isn't. At one point in the fight, the pattern will take place. I shall
also say the monster's name, just to know who it is. But the order it'll
appear in is in order of appearance. To fight the Mid-Boss and the very
Final Boss, you have to get a certain amount of points. The prerequisite
to fight the Mid-Boss is at least 300,000 points. To fight the Secret
Boss, you have to get at least 800,000 points, and probably have to
fight Xain. The Coins you gain each stage is already pre-set, so
whatever score you get doesn't affect it. If you do fight the Mid-Boss,
then that stage is Stage 5, and ones after that are one higher number
than if you didn't fight the Mid-Boss. Also, if you don't fight Xain
and/or Songi and beat Baka Fighter, the announcer will say, after the
Victory screen appears, "It's not over yet," and a fading out Songi will
appear.
  Only the basic pattern will be listed for the enemy, after it ends,
it will show "repeat" meaning the pattern starts all over. Sometimes,
the CPU will start from the middle of the pattern and continue from
there, or start from the end then continue from there.
**If you hold Triangle before a match of Baka Fighter begins, the
waitress from the restaurant on the third first floors will be in the
center of the screen, bow, and promptly leave.**
  I will only list what the enemy does, not what you should do, since
the rules are below, showing what you need to do certain attacks, also
the CPU sometimes throws in random attacks to throw you off, so it would
be useless to tell you what to push, since the CPU might throw in a
random attack. If the CPU uses X, you push []; if it uses [], you push
O; if O is used, you push X.

Rules:
[] beats X
 O beats []
 X beats O

        12.4: Coliseum Zone
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  The Coliseum Zone is very similar to the Battle Arena in FFVII, except
there are no in-battle handicaps and there are three difficulty
settings. You can't use items for any difficulty settings. The cost to
enter the Coliseum Zone is 100 Coins. Remember, Armor is different from
Weapons. The difficulty settings are Beginner, Expert, and Master.
  - Beginner: eight stages
  - Expert: at least eight stages (you fight some bosses you haven't
    already beaten)
  - Master: fight most bosses after stage eight

Beginner: No handicaps
Expert: Can't equip Armor
Master: Can't equip Armor and use Magic
_________________________________
        12.5: Dancing Queen
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  This is found in the Disco Zone in Sol Tower. But you need to get the
Gold Card for 50 Coins in the Muscle Dome to gain admittance. After you
get in, you can take lessons from the Disco King to learn how to dance.
It's similar to PaRappa the Rapper in terms of seeing what to push and
when to push it. But dancing, beats, and multiple commands for one
movement, it's similar to Bust a Move (Bust a Groove in U.S.). If you
win the Contest, Noa becomes the Dancing Queen. Find out for youself
what you get if you win the Contest.
  You should wait until you get to Level 2 by dancing regularly, then,
as soon as you get to Level 2, use one Triangle. Then you'll be at Level
3, dance regularly, but use one more Triangle at one point or another.
When the announcer starts counting, use the last Triangle on the
sequence you are on.

Part 13: Frequently Asked Questions
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
What's the use of the Point Card?
  After you earn points you can use it in battle and do really good
damage if you have enough points. After you use it your points go down.
  When you use the Point Card, all of the points are used at once, so
you can't choose how many points you want to use.

What's the use of the Honey in Rim Elm, other than raising Stats and
giving it to Vahn's sister to make an Elm Cake?
  Well, I'm unsure. But once you use the Honey on a character, the Bees
mysteriously disappear. But I think near the end of the game, she'll
give you the cake to eat or something. I don't really know.

How does the Evil God Icon work?
  You steal items the same way you absorb Seru.

Don't plagiarize! It's bad! And always give credit where it is due!

  Yo, people of the world [who E-mail me], sorry about what I say, it's
just that many of the things people ask or tell me are things I already
know, so I have to set people straight. Or, things people ask me are
very stupid and seem very obvious to understand/do. But I have decided
to thank some people for things I already know, just to be respectful.
Besides, sometime in April, I beat the game four times, just to see all
of the endings. So, don't think I don't know where obvious items are,
'cause I DO know.
