Well, with few must-have conditions: 1. Stan must have required tokugi, juumon or things to learn an ougi. 2. Stan and Dimlos must have required at certain level. 3. Stan must have Dimlos armed and only with Dimlos he can do an ougi. Now, the ougis written as in this terms: THE NAME OF THE OUGI (NAME'S TRANSLATION IN THE BRACKET) Where : the location of the stone, where an ougi is engraved. LV Stan : the level which Stan requires. LV Dimlos : the level which Dimlos requires. US Name : US version name of the ougi. Condition : required things to learn the ougi.

Description : Stan does a uppercut like in Koga Hazan and he throws Dimlos, which turned into a big ball of fire. During that time, you'll have to manually fight bare-handed and go to the spot where Dimlos is. If we use the term like the other ougis, it will be like Fearful Flare and Koga Hazan. 3. MAOU ENGEKI HA (DEVIL KING'S FLAME ATTACK WAVE) Where : At the Heidelberg underground passage in Phandalia LV Stan : 25 LV Dimlos : 23 US Name : Fiery Wave Condition : 1. Fire Wall 2.

SATSUGEKI BUKOU KEN (KILL PLAY SILENT WILD SWORD) Where : At Seingard castle. LV Stan : 48 LV Dimlos : 45 US Name : Assasin Condition : 1. Souryuu Renga Zan 2. Maou Engeki Ha Description : The screen darkens and a flash is shown, Stan dashes to his opponent and attacks furiously, until Stan's body turns red. As he turns red, his opponent also burns when it gets hit and Stan jumps while attacking. Stan ended the whole string with a fierce sword swing, which made a very large wave of fire. If you miss your opponent, you just keep on attacking which is an open chance for your enemy to nail you. If you equipped a shield, Stan throws the shield up before he dash and attacks. 8.

Then from one side of the screen, giant size Stan flies horizontally with Dimlos thrusted, while his body still engulfed by flame, which made him like a phoenix and Dimlos is the phoenix's head. This is Stan's top and final ougi, which cleans up enemies a whole screen. III. MISC. EXTRA 1.

DESTINY MINI DRAMA AND STUFF New in Destiny there are events occured by the talking of each charac ters, when they are in the world map. By these talks, the personality of each characters are shown here. You can access those dramas by not moving your characters in the world map and after fighting. You can also hear these mini dramas freely right after you finished the whole game, which you also hear the drama between Stan and Dimlos. (The voice for Dimlos is Okiayu Ryoutarou-san, who is also voicing as Miktran) My favorite dramas mostly those includes Stan and Philia, with Rutee a little bit. It seems that Rutee is kinda jealous when she saw Stan and Philia together. Tomokazu-san, Kikuko-san, and the other seiyuus roled with their best performances, and the results are faboulus. After all, the power of TOD lies on these seiyuus. Also new in Destiny is after you hear the mini dramas, you don't have to move the characters and they started performing their poses, which are : 1. Stan Aileron, raises his fist up and down in motion. 2. Rutee Kartrett, swing her hips left and right in motion. 3. Philia Philis, plucking flowers. 4. Woodrow Kelvin, standing up in a firm gesture. 5. Lion Magnus, crosses his hands in an arrogant gesture. 6. Mary Agent, sits asleep. 7. Chelsea Tone, shaking like she is scared. 8. Johnny Shiden, playing his guitar. 9. Mighty Kongman, flexin' his muscles in motion. 3.

BATTLE STRATEGIES AND MORE STUFF This section discusses about the strategies while in battle and a few stuff, which are more cool than those above. About strategies and stuff, there's a few that you may need to know when you're playing Destiny, either both Japan and US versions. (Note that these names based on Japan version only) - Before you get to Dykroft to fight Miktran (the last battle), it's best to learn all the ougis from Houou Tenku to Kouou Tenshou Yoku and equip yourself with Combo Command item before you filled up your ougi list. - If you hate being surrounded by your enemies, now here is the key. The best way to get out of this one is to use Dankuu Ken or the ougi Nenpa Senpuu Jin. - If you are in Noischtadt (Fitzgard) by the time you were dropped from Dykroft (the world in darkness, that is), there's a house with a man stands on the roof. Go to the house and talk to him and you get a ticket to a live show. Go to the colloseum and talk to the guards there, who'll ask you to turn left after you entered. They let you pass, then go to the left staircase and enter. You'll be in a musical treat by the game's version of DEEN performing the short version of their single, Yume De Aruyouni. - While fighting Miktran as himself holding Belzerios (the sixth Swordian, who suppose to be dead in the War Of Heaven And Hell), make sure you round him up good. As he is high above and you can't reach him, nail him with Kouou Tenshou Yoku to bring him down and get him. But if you are fighting Miktran as Neo-Miktran, the best way is give him the taste of Satsugeki Bukou Ken or any rending moves to made him unable to per form his magics, so keep your TP refilling items ready. You can direct Rutee to help Stan by commencing her Bloody Rose and Woodrow with his Rekkuu Jin, while Philia can pull out a magic or two. - This is the very impulsive thing, when you have to fight a very tough opponent (a shell like creature in Berklandt and dragon creatures in Tower Of Duruaga). Since some skills and magics have no effect of this kind, there are some that might hurt them. Those are: - Stan's Majin Ken, Mary's Majin Ken Kai and both Shishi Sen Kou (Mary's Gou Majin Ken and Retsu Majin Ken will do). - Mary's Zan! with a golden frypan, which you can buy at the port of Noischtadt for 50.000 galds. - Rutee's Icecicle. - Philia's Philia Bomb and Twin Bomb. - Kong's skills like Ronbu Shoulder, Great Upper or any skills. - Both Philia and Woodrow's Storm magic. - Just for thought, in the story when Stan and co. have to face Lion, there's a very conspirative story. It says that Lion's real name was Emilio Kartrett, Rutee's young brother, both born in an affair between Hugo Gilchrist and Chris Kartrett. It is shown by the similarity between Rutee's Snipe Roar and Lion's Kuu Shuu Ken, which also performed by Hugo when Stan and co. faced him in Berklandt. Just for your notice that if you equipped the Combo Command item on Stan, you can pull off his skills like in a fighting game fashion. Here's the list of them : (This is purely based on the Japan version of TOD, which I memorized and experienced) - D,DT,T + X => Majin Ken - B,BD,D,DT,T + X => Hien Ren Kyaku - U,UT,T + X => Rekkuu Zan - T,D,DT + X => Koga Hazan - T,DT,D,U + X => Dankuu Ken - T,DT,D,DB,B,T + X => Shishi Sen Kou - D,DT,T,D,DT,T + X => Souryuu Renga Zan - D,DB,B,DB,D,DT,T + X => Senkuu Retsu Ha - U,UT,T + SQUARE => Houou Tenku - B,DB,D,DT,T + SQUARE => Kuuga Shouryuu Kyaku - T,D,DT + SQUARE => Guren Ken - D,DT,T + SQUARE => Maou Engeki Ha - T,DT,D,U + SQUARE => Nenpa Senpuu Jin - T,DT,D,DB,B,T + SQUARE => Shikou Bakuen Jin - D,DB,B,DB,D,DT,T + SQUARE => Satsugeki Bukou Ken - T,B,DB,D,DT,T + SQUARE => Kouou Tenshou Yoku *. D = Downward; U = Upward; T=Toward; B = Backward IV. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS AND CREDITS This section goes to those who deserves the credit for inspiring me to finish this guide, as also an end to this guide. Comments and other stuff like that, please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org Note of apologies: I'm terribly sorry for not updating this guide for couple of years, since I have a tough time around my college schedule and playing Tales Of Phantasia for a long haul. I hope you all can understand and I'll try to make it up to you by asking one simple question about Tales Of Phantasia, which is : In the Treant Forrest, there's a hidden town of Japon which ables you to retrieve the Murasame and in the future, you can go there to find Suzu. The question is when is the exact moment finding that town, was it in the past (before or after you fixed the ring for summoning Origin)or in the future? 'Cause I tried after that, I just can't go back there anymore. These thanks gose to: - NAMCO for making this science fantasy RPG.
