    This boss chart is the first step in a complete walktrough
    with very nice playing techniques of the game. But for now
    I'll limit myself to all the bosses and optional bosses.
    NOTE!!! Sometimes it's possible you encounter the bosses
    in a diffrent order than described here, because at some
    spots you can access the dungeons in the order you want
    to as long as you play them all...
    (Bosses noted as "D" are Demons. That could mean that
    they'll come back later)
    What's new:
    Version 2:    - I discovered that I forgot the optional boss "Boomerang Flash" it's added 
                  - I added the Ancient Arena battles
                  - I added the enemy "Hayonkonton". It's not really a boss, but interesting
                    enough to be added in this list.
    Version 3:    - Added how much EXP and Gella you get for each boss
                  - Added what MY levels were when encountering this boss.
    Boss 1:       Zombie
    Difficulty:   Medium
    Party:        Rudy 3
    Location:     Berry Cave
    Experience:   100
    Cash:         200 Gella
    Preparations: Have Rudy at level 3 or 4.
                  Before starting I advise to go to Adlehyde
                  first to get Rudy the best equipment 
                  possible. (for now)
    There's one thing you need to watch out for and that's
    his "Rotten Breath". That move can really hurt you.
    For the rest the guy is not really worth it to worry
    about. Be sure to use you "Hand Cannon" with "Arm Lock On" 
    because elseway you miss to easily.
    Boss 2:       Nelgaul
    Difficulty:   Easiest boss in the game
    Party:        Cecilia 2
    Location:     Sealed Library
    Experience:   100
    Cash:         320 Gella
    Preperations: Boosting Cecilia's EXP level is not needed
                  at all so don't go for it.
                  Go to the class next to the library that was
                  turned into a mess and talk to the teacher.
                  She'll give you a Crest Graph. Take it to
                  the mage's guild and take the spell "Shield"
                  (White Magic, Geo and Geo)
    Start the battle by increasing Cecilia's defense with shield
    Keep on doing that for 2 or 3 turns and Nelgaul won't hurt you
    at all any more. Then put Cecilia on "Auto-Battle", take a
    can o' coffee and relax until the battle is over.
    Boss 3:        Magtortous
    Difficulty:    Medium
    Party:         Rudy 5, Jack 5, Cecilia 4
    Location:      Lolithia's Tomb
    Experience:    120
    Cash:          320 Gella
    Preperations:  Have the best equipment you can get in Adlehyde
    Have Rudy to empty his ARMS on this one (ARM Lock On Recommended)
    and Cecilia for the healing. Jack can use his "Psygo Crack" to 
    do more damage. Beware for his "EM Laser"!!!
    Boss 4: (D)    Belselk   (1)
    Difficulty:    Easy
    Party:         Rudy 7, Jack 7, Cecilia 6
    Location:      Adlehyde
    Experience:    200
    Cash:          Sorry!
    Preparations:  None in particular
    Belselk is just playing with you and will sometimes waste some
    turns with his "Come and get me!" As long as you don't underestimate
    him you have nothing to fear
    Boss 5:        Orga Widow
    Difficulty:    Not really hard but please realize that you have a long way back
    Party:         Rudy 13, Jack 12, Cecilia 11
    Location:      Zenom Mountain
    Experience:    600 (I used a lucky card)
    Cash:          1980 Gella
    Preparations:  Let Cecilia have the "Water Rune".
    When you don't have the "Escape" spell, please realize that you have a long
    way back. For the rest is this spider more annoying than a tread. She's 
    poisonous and with her "Capture Web" she can paralyze all party members. It 
    might be a good idea to let Cecilia summon Stoldark every time she can because
    water is this spider's ultimate weakness...
    Boss 6:        Night Gaunt
    Difficulty:    Medium
    Party:         Rudy 15, Jack 14, Cecilia 13
    Location:      Cage Tower
    Experience:    1660 (Lucky card used)
    Cash:          7000 Gella
    Preparations:  You should have Goat Dolls. Let every one wear one.
                   Make sure Cecilia has "Flash".
                   Also bring a "Lucky Card"
    Use a lucky card since this creature provides you a lot of money. For the
    rest use Jack and Rudy for attacking and Cecilia for the healing. Cecilia must
    cast "Flash" because the Night Gaunt avoids your attacks easily. Save your magic
    on this one. I recommend to let Cecilia use the "Summit Rune" to summon
    Denogenos whenever she can.
    Boss 7: (D)    Zed (1)
    Difficulty:    Easy
    Party:         Rudy 17, Jack 16, Cecilia 16
    Location:      Sweet Candy
    Experience:    1460
    Cash:          Er....?
    Preparations:  Cecilia must have the "Quick" spell.
    No need to hold back or to save yer magic nor ARMS. This is the only fight on
    this location and your MP and HP will automaticly be restored after the fight.
    Let Cecilia speed herself up to be sure she can stand by quickly.
    Most of the time Zed only uses the "Doom Bringer", but watch out! His
    "Garyu Ichimongiri" can do pretty much damage.
    Boss 8:        Gigmantis
    Difficulty:    Hard
    Party:         Rudy 19, Jack 18, Cecilia 18
    Location:      Pleasing Garden
    Experience:    1500
    Cash:          2580 Gella
    Preparations:  Cecilia must have the "Quick" spell.
                   Jack must have the fast draw "Heal Blade" of which the hint
                   can be obtained in the "Sand River".
    The Gigmantis is pretty fast and pretty destructive. When you speed up Cecilia
    and Jack you may stand a chance. Let Jack take over the healing with 
    "Heal Blade" when you want Cecilia to summon a Guardian (Stoldark recommended).
    But watch out when summoning Guardians. Cecilia might need her "Mystic" very
    badly for healing.
    Boss 9:        Captain Geist
    Difficulty:    Very EXTREEMLY easy
    Party:         Rudy 19, Jack 19, Cecilia 19
    Location:      Ghost Ship
    Experience:    1700 (I tought I used a lucky card)
    Cash:          7800 Gella
    Preparations:  Cecilia should have "Light Blow"
    Okay, only sissies use ARMS and Fast draw on this one. Just let Cecilia cast
    "Light Blow" on every one and he's dead before you know it. Using "Sonic
    Vision" now will result in very much damage.
    Only his "Stun Cloud" is annoying, but this guy is absolutly not dangerous".
    Boss 10: (D)   Zed (2)
    Difficulty:    Pretty Hard
    Party:         Rudy 21, Jack 21, Cecilia 21
    Location:      Volcannon Trap
    Experience:    1800
    Cash:          You didn't need that, did you?
    Preparations:  Spells: "Quick"
                   Fast Draw: "Heal Blade"
    Speed up Cecilia and Jack. For the rest save your magic and ARMS, because after
    Zed there's another boss.
    Boss 11: (D)   Belselk (2)
    Difficulty:    Hard
    Party:         Rudy 22, Jack 21, Cecilia 21
    Location:      Volcannon Trap
    Experience:    1900
    Cash:          5000 Gella
    Preparations:  Fast Draw: "Heal Blade"
    In Adlehyde Belselk was only playing, but now he's really going for it. His
    "Belselk Breaker" can really hurt you badly, and he can paralyze you all with
    his "Blaster Howling". Use Cecilia for Healing and let Jack take it over 
    whenever it's needed. You can let Rudy empty your ammo on him.
    Boss 12:       Mage Fox
    Difficulty:    Hard
    Party:         Rudy 23, Jack 23, Cecilia 22
    Location:      Tripillar
    Experience:    ?
    Cash:          10,000 Gella (I used a lucky card)
    Preparations:  Spells: "Quick", "Heal", "Protect"
                   Fast Draw: "Heal Blade"
    FIRST OF ALL SPEED UP CECILIA!!!! You'll be in big trouble if you don't!!!
    Casting attacking magic and summoning Guardians won't make sense since this
    fella is invulnerable to everything. Only normal attacks, Fast Draw and ARMS
    will hurt him. The spells "Valkyrie" and "Blast" can hurt you pretty bad and
    especially Rudy.
    Boss 13: (D)   Boomerang and Luceid (1)
    Difficulty:    Fucking hard!!!
    Party:         Rudy 25, Jack 24, Cecilia 23
    Location:      Epitaph Sea
    Experience:    2800
    Cash:          Nothing at all!
    Preparations:  Fast Draw "Heal Blade" (This is the last time I say it. 
                   "Heal Blade" is recommended for all the next bosses).
    Speeding up Cecilia is a good idea. For the rest you must decide if you go
    straight for Boomerang or that you take Luceid first. It doesn't matter if you
    kill Luceid, it's defeating Boomerang that counts. Being quick can really
    save you here!! Boomerang and Luceid will be back and are the tougest of the
    demon fights.
    Boss 14:       Agaless
    Difficulty:    Medium
    Party:         Rudy 26, Jack 25, Cecilia 24
    Location:      Sacred Shrine
    Experience:    2000
    Cash:          3680 Gella
    Preparations:  Spells: "Shield"
    Don't be surprised or frustrated by the high ammount of damage this beast
    causes. He is not as difficult as he appears to be. Let Cecilia cast "Shield"
    on Rudy serveral times and use Jack for healing. As soon as Rudy is able to let 
    him use "Protector" and this fella is suddenly a lot more easier. 
    Boss 15: (D)   Alhazad (1)
    Difficulty:    Easy
    Party:         Rudy 26, Jack 25, Cecilia 24
    Location:      Sacred Shrine
    Experience:    ?
    Cash:          ?
    Preparations:  Spells: "Light Blow"
    Don't use Fast Draw or ARMS. No need!!! Let Cecilia cast "Light Blow" on every
    body and the fight is over very soon. You should beware his "Esperanza" and
    "Electrigger", but it's no big deal.
    Boss 16:        Lolithia
    Difficulty:     VERY HARD!!!
    Party:          Rudy 28, Jack 27, Cecilia 26
    Location:       Photosphere
    Experience:     4280 (Lukcy Card)
    Cash:           11,000 Gella
    Preparations:   Spells "Awaken" (YOU'RE IN BIG TROUBLE WITHOUT IT!!!!!!!!!!!)
    Of the normal bosses Lolithia is definatly one of the toughest in the game.
    Especially her "Cold Sleep" spell is dangerous. It hurts you VERY badly and can
    also put your whole party to sleep. If that last thing happens the game is 
    OVER!! To prevent this Cecilia should open with "Awaken" all you can do is hope
    it'll come through. if it does you don't need to fear to fall asleep any more.
    Having Cecilia to speed herself and Jack up when you get the chance will really
    make you live longer. For the rest it's advisable not to wast your magic on
    fire spells (Lolithia's Weakness)... Right after Lolithia you'll need to face 
    the Mother.
    Boss 17: (D)    Mother
    Difficulty:     Medium
    Party:          Rudy 28, Jack 27, Cecilia 26
    Location:       Photosphere
    Experience:     2500
    Cash:           A true destroyer doesn't need cash!
    Preparations:   None in particular
    Mother has a few destructive spells you need to watch out for, but is not really
    difficult. Her "Als Magna" will get you some status changes. Jack can restore
    the statusses with his "Heal Blade".
    Boss 18: (D)    Lady Harken (1)
    Difficulty:     Easy
    Party:          Rudy 29, Jack 28, Cecilia 26
    Location:       Dragon Shrine
    Experience:     2200
    Cash:           Nada!
    Preparations:   None
    Remarks:        After the fight Jack will take over her "Guilty Blade"
    Lady Harken isn't worth to talk much about, every experienced RPG player should
    be able to beat her without even trying. 
    Trickster can be nice to obtain a "Secret Sign".
    Boss 19: (D)    Boomerang and Luceid (2)
    Difficulty:     Hard and EXTREEMLY dangerous
    Party:          Rudy 31, Jack 30, Cecilia 29
    Location:       Dead Santuary
    Experience:     5500
    Cash:           Once again nothing!
    Preperations:   Spells: "Quick", "Remedy", "Hi-Heal", "Hi-Shield", "Life Guard" 
                    (This goes for the next bosses as well)... 
    Welcome to hell... Boomerang will be a lot more powerfull and especially Luceid
    has become a real dangerous opponent. Luceid's "Large Moon" can cause so much 
    damage that you may die instantly. Using "Hi-Shield" can reduce this damge a
    little. Speeding up Cecilia and Jack may also be a very good idea.
    Be sure to have "Rememdy" to heal you whole party when needed. And "Hi-Heal" is
    the least you need to heal against "Large Moon".
    Boss 20: (D)    Lady Harken
    Difficulty:     Easy
    Party:          Rudy 32, Jack 31, Cecilia 29
    Location:       Demon's Lab
    Experience:     3400
    Cash:           0000 Gella!
    Preparations:   None
    New fighting techniques but still as easy as ever. Trickster can get you a
    "Secret Sign" and for the rest I don't need to talk about her.
    Boss 21:        Diablo
    Difficulty:     Medium
    Party:          Rudy 34, Jack 32, Cecilia 31
    Location:       Gate Generator
    Experience:     4000
    Cash:           7000 Gella
    Preparations:   None
    Of all the Golems, Diablo is the easiest to kill. Speed up Cecilia and Jack
    and shield up the party a little and go for it. Be aware of the fact that 
    Zeikfried will be your next opponent and that you cannot rest between the two
    Boss 22: (D)    Zeikfried (1)
    Difficulty:     Medium
    Party:          Rudy 34, Jack 32, Cecilia 31
    Location:       Gate Generator
    Experience:     5000
    Cash:           Why would an ultimate ruler need money?
    Preparations:   None
    Zeikfried is not really dangerous, but still he can give you a hard time. Still
    he's not really strong and his most powerfull move is "Negative Rainbow".
    "Remedy" is strongly recommended to be in your spell list.
    Boss 23:        Elisabeth
    Difficulty:     Medium
    Party:          Cecilia 33
    Location:       Vassim's Lab
    Experience:     6000
    Cash:           $0... That's much isn't it!
    Preperations:   Have the "Heavens Rune", which can be obtained on a deserted
                    island east to Court Seim
                    And have the "Saint" spell
    Remarks:        Cecilia must fight her alone
    Being quicker than her is of terrible importance. Elisabeth has really strong
    attacks and will try to flash you with her "Flash Bomb". No need to save your
    magic on her, since she's the only enemy around here and your HP and MP will
    be restored after the fight. If you see a chance have Cecilia to summon the
    "High Guardian" of Solos Emsu (Heavens Rune). When you don't have it, Ione Paua
    (Saint Rune) is a nice replacement. Also Saint is a nice spell to use on her.
    Not her ultimate weakness, but it does very much damage. Saint only cost much
    MP, so be carefull, you need your MP to heal too, y'know.
    Boss 24:        Mech Drake
    Difficulty:     Medium
    Party:          Rudy 35, Jack 35, Cecilia 34
    Location        Gemini Corpse
    Experience:     12000 (Lucky Card)
    Cash:           14000 Gella
    Preperations:   Let Jack carry the "Love Rune". (It summons Rafina who'll heal
                    all party members very greatly). Personally I let Jack always
                    wear the Love Rune.
    This beast has destructive attacks to watch out for, but he's not really 
    dangerous. His "Silence" spell can be very annoying. You can let Rudy fire your
    ARMS on it and be carefull when to use "Sonic Vision". When Cecilia gets 
    silenced, Raftina (Love Rune) is the only solution to heal your party. Why not
    let Cecilia have it. Cecilia can better use the Guardians power for destruction,
    that's why. Raftina is strong enough to be used by Jack, and the other Guardians
    are much more destructive when summoned by Cecilia. Capiche?
    Boss 25:        Turask
    Difficulty:     Annoying
    Party:          Rudy 36, Jack 35, Cecilia 35
    Location:       Pandemonium
    Experience:     ?
    Cash:           56,800 (Lucky Card)
    Preparations:   Spells: "Hyper" and perhaps "Armor Down"
    Turask has destructive moves, but they can be healed easily. His power is that
    he shields himself so much that in the end you'll hardly hurt him. Spells like
    "Hyper" can make your allies stronger. You'll need it or this fight will last
    Boss 26:        Demon Prophet
    Difficulty:     Very hard
    Party:          Rudy 36, Jack 36, Cecilia 35
    Location:       Pandemonium
    Experience:     14,000 (Lucky Card)
    Cash:           72,200 Gella
    Preparations:   Be sure Rudy is not alone
    You can meet Demon Prophet when Rudy is alone, or when he has rejoined with
    Jack and Cecilia. When he is alone he won't stand a chance so be sure that Jack
    and Cecilia are with him.
    Demon Prophet is not only fast, his spells are also VERY destructive. Speeding
    up Cecilia is absolutly necesary and in most situations Jack's "Heal Blade" 
    will be needed very badly. Let your offense come from Rudy.
    The spell you really need to fear is "Hell Size Masquarade". Let Jack have the
    Love Rune and save your forces so he can summon Raftina whenever she's needed.
    Boss 27:        Shazam
    Difficulty:     Rather easy, but watch out!!
    Party:          Rudy 36, Jack 36, Cecilia 35
    Location:       Pandemonium
    Experience:     18,000 (I think I used a lucky card)
    Cash:           79,600 Gella
    Preparations:   Spells: "Life Guard", "Hi-Revive"
    Shazam destructive spells are rather strong, but you don't need to fear that.
    You gotta watch out for his "Fatal Blow" which can kill you instantly. When
    Cecilia is dead you'll be history, so protect her with "Life Guard", save 
    yourself the trouble of using other assistant magic, because Shazam will dispell
    it all. Having Raftina (Love Rune) ready for action (on Jack) to heal you is a
    very good idea.
    Be sure to let Cecilia revive party member who may die with her "Hi-Revive" 
    Boss 28: (D)    Lady Harken (3)
    Difficulty:     Too easy
    Party:          Jack 37
    Location:       Artica City
    Experience:     10,000
    Cash:           Nothing. You'll get a lucky card instead.
    Preparations:   Aw skip it
    Remarks:        Jack must fight her alone
    The final battle agains Harken. She's too simple to worry about. She's only very
    fast, so watch out for that.

    Boss 29: (D)    Boomerang and Luceid (3)
    Difficulty:     Very EXTREEMLY hard
    Party:          Rudy 37, Jack 37, Cecilia 36
    Location:       Ka Dingel
    Experience:     11,300
    Cash:           He lives for battle, not for money.
    Preparations:   Let Jack carry the "Love Rune"
                    Let Cecilia carry the "Chrono Rune" (when you can't find it
                    the "Hope Rune" is the best replacement)
                    (The Chrono Rune is a complicated story but the hope rune can
                    be obtained in Baskar after you've won the final battle over
                    Lady Harken)
                    This Guardian setting is recommended for all bosses that will
                    come next and all the optional bosses, except for Chaos
    The toughest demon fight of all. When you've finished them thank the lord that 
    you don't need to fight them again. (Boomerang will be back as an optional boss,
    however, but as the word "optinal" says, you don't need to fight him). Once 
    again, your biggest problem will be Luceid. "Large Moon" and "Purple Electric
    Revised" will make him very dangerous. It's once again that it's only killing
    Boomerang that matters. Luceid is optional, but still VERRRY dangerous.
    "Remedy" and summoning Raftina are your best trump cards on this fight. Whenever
    Cecilia gets the chance make her summon the "High Guardian" of Dan Dairam 
    (Chrono Rune), or when you don't have it the "High Guardian" of Zephyr (Hope
    Rune).... Happy Frustrations, my friend.
    Oh and be clever, go to an inn after the fight before entering Ka Dingel. You'll
    need it.

    Preparations:   Same as final battle with Boomerang and Luceid.
                    and the spell "Light Blow"
                    Having "Full Libra" on every party member is advisable.
    Look mamma, without Fast Draw or attacking magic. Let Cecilia cast "Light Blow"
    over every one and Alhazad will be killed easily. Be aware of the fact that you
    are in the middle of a gigantic mission that doesn't allow you to rest, so 
    SAVE YOUR MAGIC!!!!!!!!! 
    When you don't have "Full Libras" then casting "Awaken" is a very wise opening!

    Experience:     73,000
    Cash:           Nothing!
    Preparations:   See Alhazad
    Berial has some killer moves that may be really dangerous and he'll try to
    lower your Armor. He's not a serious thread. You should only make sure that
    Cecilia is quicker than him and having Jack that fast is also a good idea. 
    Be sure not to use your magic too much. You can't rest here and there are a
    few more bosses....

    Location:       Malduke
    Experience:     16,666
    Cash:           Nothing, but you don't need it any more!
    Preparations:   Just like before
    Zeikfried is VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY fast. Don't try to speed up your party,
    because it's the same as using the Chewbacca defense method. IT DOES NOT MAKE
    SENSE!!! Before your fast enough for him you can have killed him 1000 times.
    But his great speed is acctually his only trump card, his moves are not really
    that strong, but his speed can make him really dangerous.
    Another thing to watch out for, when you finished him there'll be a new boss
    waiting for you and the battle will start before you got the chance to do
    anything else.
    Boss 33: (D)    Motherfried
    Difficulty:     Pretty hard, but not very hard

    Experience:     20,000
    Cash:           Not one single gella. Ow well, you don't need it any more!
    Preperations:   Full Libra on all party members is STRONGLY recommended.
    Motherfried's killer moves are very strong, but can be survived easily. But her
    "Als Magna" could really cause you a big trouble when you don't have Full Libras
    Motherfried is not as fast as Zeikfried but speeding up Cecilia is still a good
    idea. Still you need to be aware of the fact that Motherfried can dispell it.
    Boss 34: (D)    Zeikfried (Zeik Tuvai)     *** FINAL BOSS ***
    Difficulty:     Easy
    Party:          Rudy 44, Jack 43, Cecilia 43
    Location:       Artificial Space between Malduke and Ka Dingel
    Experience:     -
    Cash:           -
    Preparations:   Cecilia should have the "Chrono Rune"/"Hope Rune"
                    Jack should have the "Love Rune"
                    Everyone must have a "Full Libra"
    The final battle is very easy and isn't worth the trouble to worry about. His 
    speed sucks, even Rudy is much to fast for him so that's one problem less to
    worry about. Let Cecilia cast "Life Guard" on herself so she can survive 
    "Fatal Blow" at all times. (Of course cast it again when he uses it on her and 
    the spell takes the blow). His "Proton Beam" is the only serious killer move
    he has. He has "Hi-Heal" and that can be pretty annoying.
    Have Cecilia to summon the High Guardian Dan Dairam/Zephyr whenever you get the

    Optional Boss 1: Chaos
    Difficulty:      Hard
    Party:           Rudy 16, Jack 15, Cecilia 15
    Location:        Maze Of Death
    Experience:      2600 (Lucky Card was used here)
    Cash:            3000 Gella
    How to meet him: When you missed him there's no chance of meeting him again.
                     When you retrieved the crystal bud from the maze you'll get
                     3 minutes to get out. 
                     Go back to the save spot and let Rudy blow up the wall on the
                     North. The way is free to meet him.
    Reward:          Death Rune. Summons Ge Ramtos
    Preparations:    Spells: "Awaken", "Heal", "Quick"
                     Bring enough "Violent Roses"
    Chaos is by far the EASIEST optional boss of all. When you think he's too hard
    then don't go for the others. Let Cecilia open the fight with "Awaken". When you
    don't you'll get in big trouble. Now have Cecilia to heal all the party members
    and Jack and Rudy to attack. Let Rudy empty his Arms on this one. When Cecilia
    gets silenced you're in trouble. Having enough violent roses ready is a good
    idea. To save your Fast Draw "Light Blow" can really be nice since this creature
    is vulnerable to "Holy".
    Optional Boss 2: Monster Zed
    Difficulty:      Impossible
    Party:           Rudy 38, Jack 38, Cecilia 37
    Location:        Saint Centour
    Experience:      16,666
    Cash:            Cash?
    How to meet him: After Zed blew up the Gate Generator at Zeikfried's command
                     you can go to Saint Centour and talk to the blind girl. When
                     you leave you'll meet Zed. If you want you can fight him.
    Reward:          Doom Bringer. Nice weapon for Jack.
    Prepararations:  Bring at least 99 goat dolls or you'll be history.
                     Spells: "Awaken"
    Letting Cecilia open the fight with "Awaken" must be done or the fight is over
    before it has begun. Let also have everyone to wear a goat doll and never forget
    to replace it when the goat doll takes the blow. And just go for it....
    Optional Boss 3: Leviathan
    Difficulty:      Very very very hard
    Party:           Rudy 39, Jack 38, Cecilia 38
    Location:        Inner Sea
    Experience:      10,000
    Cash:             8,000 Gella
    How to meet him: After the Sweet Candy has sunk you can meet Drake in one of
                     houses in Adlehyde when you've paid enough restoration 
                     donations. Drake will give you a new ship. Sail the inner sea
                     now until you find him
    Reward:          Pret-a-porte. By far the best armor for Cecilia
    Preparations:    Let Jack carry the "Love Rune" and Cecilia have "Chrono Rune" 
                     or the "Hope Rune"
                     Let everyone carry a goat doll.
    Leviathan has very strong killer moves, but you may be able to survive them,
    goat dolls as back-up, however is strongly recommended, but when you're lucky
    not necesary. Speeding up Cecilia and Jack is strongly recommended. When you're
    fast enough, you got much less to fear.
    Optional Boss 4: Barbados
    Difficulty:      Mega hard
    Party:           Rudy 37, Jack 37, Cecilia 37
    Location:        Filgaia
    Experience:      8000
    Cash:            3890 Gella
    How to meet him: When you got the second version of the plane you can find him
                     in the desert North west to the Temple of Memory (Jack's 
                     starting dungeon).
    Reward:          Dist Dims. Best weapon for Cecilia
    Preparations:    Same as Leviathan
    Barbadoss may have killer moves but his biggest thread is his speed. When you
    beat his speed you'll have much less to fear. So SPEED UP CECILIA AND JACK!!!
    Goat dolls, are recommended, but you may survive without them if you are lucky.
    Optional Boss 5: Angol Moa
    Difficulty:      Mega Impossible
    Party:           Rudy 40, Jack 40, Cecilia 40
    Location:        Ancient Arena
    Experience:      20,000
    Cash:            20,000 Gella
    How to meet him: 5 duplicators are needed and the Power Glove tool. Rudy must
                     break the mirror behind the Duke with his Power Glove, then 
                     you'll find 5 duplicator doors. When you open them all you'll
                     meet Angol Moa
    Reward:          Juggernaut. Best weapon for Jack.
    Preparations:    Same as before. Love Rune for Jack, Chrono Rune/Hope Rune for
                     Cecilia and at least 99 goat dolls.
    You though Moster Zed was impossible? Angol Moa is even worse. He's not really
    strong in his attacks. He can counter but that not really the bad thing.
    "The 7th Moon" is his ultimate attack, and will mostly be so strong that 
    everybody will be dead. Angol Moa is very eager to use it too. That makes that
    your ammount of goat dolls could be halved after the fight.
    No fighting techinique can be advised. Just have enough goat dolls.
    Optional Boss 8: Boomerang Flash
    Difficulty:      Impossible at the start, but MUCH easier later
    Party:           Rudy 38, Jack 38, Cecilia 37
    Location:        Ancient Arena
    Experience:      20,000
    Cash:            Poor you. No cash here!
    How to meet him: First you must have won the fight against Boomerang and Luceid at the 
                     entrance of "Ka Dingel". After that you must fight all the battles at
                     the ancient Arena (last one is the "Riversider").
                     If you enter the Arena again, Boomerang Flash will be your opponent
                     (if you've beaten the Riversider before you've beaten Boomerang at Ka 
                     Dingel he'll come directly after you've beaten Boomerang when you enter the
    Reward:          Divine Blade. Best weapon for Rudy
    Preparations:    Have some Goat Dolls ready and make sure that Cecilia has "Hi-Shield" and
    Boomerang Flash's moves are really killing. The first few rounds it doesn't 
    even make sense to use healing spells, since Boomerang is too strong for 
    that. Let's Cecilia cast "Hi-Shield" all the time. After doing this for at 
    least 5 rounds Boomerang will be much weaker. If you want to can continue 
    this and very soon he won't do any damage at all. Then the time has 
    come to cast "Flash" since Boomerang's Parry Rate is much too high. 
    Now you can sit back and relax. Make sure you keep on refreshing goat dolls
    whenever he uses "Zero Count Execution" since that move has an instant kill
    Optional Boss 7: Lucifer
    Difficulty:      Impossible
    Party:           Rudy 42, Jack 42, Cecilia 41
    Location:        Malduke
    Experience:      15,000
    Cash:            10,000 Gella
    How to meet him: First you'll need the guitar of Maya. A secret passage in the
                     area with blue and red doors will lead to a circle on fire.
                     Let Cecilia put it out and let Jack stand in the middle of it
                     and play his guitar.
    Reward:          Jade wilder. Best armor for Jack
    Preparations:    Goat dolls
    AAAAAARGH!!! Another goat doll eater. Sorry, just bring enough goat dolls. It's
    all I can say. Maybe when you're level 60 or higher you may stand a chance 
    without them. "Beam Fencer" and "Sephiroto" are his moves that do so much damage
    that there's no possiblity to win without goat dolls. Healing might be nice to
    surive his normal attacks and for nothing else. 
    Optional Boss 8: Sado
    Difficulty:      Very hard
    Party:           Rudy 43, Jack 42, Cecilia 42
    Location:        Malduke
    Experience:      11,000
    Cash:             9,000 Gella
    How to meet him: In the volcannic part is a circle that works the same way as
                     the one of Lucifer's
    Reward:          Braver vest. Best armor for Rudy.
    Preparations:    Love Rune for Jack
                     Chrono or Hope Rune for Cecilia.
    Phwew, a boss that doesn't require Goat Dolls (if you're lucky). His Armageddon
    move is VERY VERY strong however and his Evil Quasar is to be feared too. 
    However when you get the chance to speed up Jack and Cecilia about 3 or 4 times
    this guy will be much less to worry about and can become rather simple.
    Optional Boss 9: Ragu Ragla
    Difficulty:      Hardest fight in the game
    Party:           Rudy ??, Jack ??, Cecilia ?? (Never went for him)
    Location:        Abbys
    Experience:      ???
    Cash:            ???
    How to meet him: First Jack should have the Guitar of Maya which is stored in
                     the final Dungeon Malduke. One of the Elws of Tarjon should 
                     also have told you about what could happen when something
                     goes wrong when using the Elw pyramids.
                     Go to Milama and go to the Elw pyramid here. Keep on 
                     teleporting until you end up in a secret dungeon. This is
                     the abbys. A dark dungeon where light isn't allowed. Enemies
                     are fucking hard here too.
    Reward:          Sheriff Star. Resists all status changes and make you heal by
                     magical attacks
    Preparations:    Be level 99 or bring tons of goat dolls.
    I know very little about the Ragu Ragla. I never went for him, I only saw a 
    friend of mine beating him. He had all party members at level 99 and the Ragu 
    Ragla refused to use his powerfull spells so he had an easy victory, but most
    people won't be so lucky, that's what I know for sure. Bringing a lot of Goat
    Dolls will be your only chance of winning when you don't want to boost till 
    level 99. Fact is.... I personnally don't see a reason why to fight the Ragu
    Ragla. When you're able to beat him you don't need that fucking Sheriff Star,
    thrust me. Only go for him when you want to complete the game with all the
    optional bosses (as an act of honor or something cheesy like that).
    I also recommend to cast "Escape" after you beat him so you don't need to walk
    the way back.

    Arena Opponent 1: Medea
    Difficulty:       Medium
    Experience:       25,000
    Cash:             900 Gella
    Preperations:     Have a few goat dolls. If you are fortunate enough to 
                      have "Full Libras" then having them is even better.
                      Letting Jack wear the "Love" Rune is strongly recommended
                      if you plan to go for the other opponents too and then
                      letting have Cecilia the "Chrono Rune" is even much better.
                      Spells: "Flash", "Saint", "Light Blow"
                      Fast Draw: "Heal Blade"
    If you're pretty high in level and you're so lucky to have the "Love" and the
    "Chrono" rune then the best you can do is defend until Cecilia is 
    Force Level 3 and Jack Force Level 2. Having Rudy level 2 might be handy and
    hand him any Attacking Guardian except for Justine (Courage Rune) or Duras
    Drum (Hades Rune), those two will only heal him. When you are at the good 
    Force level let Jack summon Raftina,  Let Cecilia summon Dan Dairam in High
    Guardian Form and let Rudy summon whatever guardian he may have.
    Watch out, if you're not really strong it may be that you may need some
    healing magic or Heal Blade, but try to avoid it, because you will need your 
    magic later very badly. (When you don't have Full Libra, you must be aware
    that he has "Human Experiementation" which can give you awfull status
    In any other situation I think you must leave it to Medea Only, because the
    others are really strong. Medea has exactly 10,000 HP and is vulnerable to
    holy attacks. However he has "Hi-Heal" so that can really be a big problem.
    If you still want to save magic you can flash him because his parry rate
    is extreemly high. As long as you're below level 37 or so, you can fight
    with all your might because then you won't be match for the others.
    Arena Opponent 2: Bad News
    Difficulty:       Pretty Hard
    Experience:       5,000
    Cash:             1,000 Gella
    Preparations:     Be at least around level 38 or higher and have some
                      Goat Dolls ready.
                      Spells: "Heal", "Hi-Heal", "Remedy", "Shield"
                      Fast Draw: "Heal Blade"
    This guy is pretty strong, but it makes no sense to use your attacking
    magic, Fast Draw or ARMS on him. Especially not if you want to 
    proceed to the next rounds. Because opponent 3 is Bloody Hard. The 
    best way to do this is to let Jack do the healing with Heal Blade
    and Cecilia should cast "Shield" over Rudy for at least 5 or 6 rounds.
    When Rudy is able to use his "Protector" force use it and the battle
    will be MUCH easier. Still his "Fatal Blow" and "Brutal Attack" can
    be dangerous. Another problem is that Bad News is pretty fast. Still
    speeding up is not really making sense.

    Difficulty:       Bloody Hard
    Experience:       10,000
    Cash:             15,000
    Preperations:     Be at least around level 38 or higher and have some
                      Goat Dolls Ready
                      Spells: "Heal", "Hi-Heal", "Remedy", "Quick", "Restore"
                      Fast Draw: "Magnum Fang", "Heal Blade"
                      Let Jack carry the "Love Rune"
    Okay, this fella has 40,000 hitpoints and terribly high defense. He 
    can disease you, but that's not really the problem. His 
    "Anti-matter Bomb" is your worst enemy in this fight. Speeding up
    Jack and Cecilia can be helpfull and having Rafina ready for action
    is a good idea. Sometimes Odoryuk (Life Rune) is handy to have stand-by
    since Odoryuk heals status changes too (Raftina (Love Rune) heals more
    HP however). Being quick is your best ally. Sometimes it may be
    advisable to use "Hyper" to damage him more. Using ARMS can be handy too.
    Arena Opponent 4: Riversider
    Difficulty:       Not really that difficult, but not to be underestimated
    Experience:       20,000

    Preparations:     Spells: "Shield", "Hi-Heal", "Heal", "Remedy", "Hyper"
                      Fast Draw: "Heal Blade", "Magnum Fang"
                      Some Goat Dolls
    The Riversider looks like... A fishy like woman in a shell or something.
    I take it for female. But to the point:
    The Riversider is EXTREEMLY FAST! Just like Zeikfried in Malduke using
    speeding magic is the same as the Chewbacca Defense Method: IT DOES NOT
    MAKE SENSE!!! Therefore you'll need other weapons. The Riversider 
    normally only uses normal attacks which are pretty strong, but you can
    live with them. She has one move which will ALWAYS require a Goat Doll
    and that's Brutal Blow. That's all! Another problem is that you might
    not damage her at all. That's something I'll dicuss later. First keep
    on shielding Rudy and let Rudy use "Protector" as soon as he's able to.
    If your patient enough very soon the Riversider can't hurt you at all
    (as long as she doesn't use "Brutal Blow", but she seldom does that).
    Jack should operate as an healer with his "Heal Blade" and use 
    "Accelerator" with that whenever you get the chance.
    As soon as Rudy can't be hurt at all it's time for action, let Cecilia
    have the best attacking guardian you have (the best is Dan Dairam (Chrono
    Rune), but he's pretty hard to get, alas. I'll discuss in my future 
    walktrough how to get him). And let her use "High Guardian" whenever
    you can. Now casting Hyper on Rudy, won't make you need ARMS any more
    and casting Hyper on Jack is very nice in combination with "Magnum Fang"
    and "Sonic Vision". And so you can have an easy win. It will only take
    awhile since the Riversider has 65535 hitpoints.
    NOTE! Fire is her weakness, but don't use Fire Magic. It won't hurt
    her at all... Pretty strange since it's her weakness...
    - = Hayonkonton = -
    Extra Enemy:     Hayonkonton
    Difficulty:      Pretty easy, still be prepared
    Experience:      80,000
    Cash:            60,000 Gella
    Preparations:    Have some Full Libra's ready.
                     Spells: "Heal", "Hi-Heal", "Quick", "Remedy", "Restore"
                     Fast Draw: "Heal Blade"
                     Level 35 or higher recommended.
    Remark:          Not really a boss, but very tricky. They provide VERY much
                     Experience and money and when your lucky a "Duplicator".
    Where to find:   At the small islands norht-east-east to the Arena.
    Okay... The only bad thing is, there are always two of them. Full Libra's
    are handy since they use "Human Experiementation" (Random status change on
    one person) and "Direct Voice" (Confuses everybody). For the rest you must
    be aware of their "Anti-Matter Bomb", but theirs is MUCH weaker then that
    of Javawalk. You'll find out they're rather easy to defeat, but it can only
    take a very long while since they got both around 65535 hitpoints.
    Good luck!
