       If you equipped yourself with Seal Armors, remove them now.  I 
       suggest that you equip Fei with Deathblower 1 if you have it.
    
       Enter the [right] door.  The next battle will be tough.  Have Maria
       in your party because you need Maria's gear's powerful attacks. 
    
       Walk /EAST\ then turn [right] at the end.  Once you get to the gap
       on the floor.  Go down and get out of your gears.  Go to the door
       on the [left] and enter the room.

       After the battles, a sequence follows.
    
                         ooooo SUBMISSIONS ooooo
    
       Defeating the group of bosses above is really difficult especially 
       if you do not have well-equipped gears.  I received lots of e-mails
       asking for tips and tricks on defeating them.  Now I'm asking all of
       you out there to share how you got through them.
    
       --------------------------------------------------------------------
       from David Meleedy <david.meleedy@analog.com>
    
       Ellie's "Aerods" attack does amazing damage to "BLADE GASH, MARINE
       BASHER" simultaneously.  usually 2 of these attacks plus Fei's X 
       attack's and level 1 combos will do in these 2 really quick.
    
       For "GRAND GROWL, SKY GHENE" try using Chu-Chu for something
       different!  She barely gets affected by Sky Ghene, so use Bart to
       full out attack "GRAND GROWL", get rid of him ASAP.  The rest of the
       fight should be using Chu's X attacks on SKY GHENE, and try to keep
       Bart Alive.
    
       --------------------------------------------------------------------
       from Aaron Doucet <sling@idirect.ca>
    
       Before the battle, go to Shevat. Tune Up Fei's and Elly's gears to
       the MAX. Buy a Flare rod G for Elly. Make sure you equip the flare 
       rod. Buy the best whip for Bart, equip it, and then go to Babel
       tower.
     
       For Bladegash and Marinebasher, Just use Aerods twice, and 
       Marinebasher should be very close to dying. kill Marinebasher, and 
       Bladegash should be easy. Then for the other two, just kill Skyghene
       first, and then Grandgrowl. Repeat for the second time. Use booster 
       if neccesary.

       Talk to Sigurd and leave for Thames.  Thames is near the Babel 
       Tower.  It's /SOUTHWEST\ of Babel Tower.  When you're near, do a 
       nose dive using the directional button until you hit the ocean.
       You should see the waves splashing when you hit the ocean. Go to
       Thames and the word 'Thames' should appear.  Press <X> to enter.
       
       From Yggdrasil's deck, head /NORTH\ and enter Thames.  From the
       screw elevator, go to the bridge.  Talk to the Captain.
    
       Go back to the screw elevator and head for the Supply Entrance.
       Walk /NORTH\ and talk to the man facing the wall.  Tune up your
       gears!  Make sure all your gears have the fix frame HP.
    
       Get back to the screw elevator.   Go to the Dock.  Go back to
       Yggdrasil.  Go the Yggdrasil's bridge.  Talk to Sigurd.
    
       The compass is gone and you can't turn your view 360 degrees.
       Walk [forward].  The fastest way to move is by jumping.  You'll
       see a whole.  Go in it.  Keep on walking forward.  There is a fork
       along the way.  Turn [right] and enter the next hole.  You'll find
       yourself in a really long tunnel.
    
          o TIPS ON ENEMIES
          o Death Scythe - can cause 1000+ damage per turn.  Use deathblows
          o   to kill this devil.
          o Medusoid - like in the underground cave in the desert, this
          o   medusoid can be killed with one <X> attack.
          o Merman - has electric attack.  Use deathblows to kill it.
          o Salvager - kill with deathblows.  It has  withdrawal attack
          o   which can cause 2000+ damage.
    
       Keep on jumping around.  On the other end, you'll come across a
       fork in the tunnel with strong current.  Don't worry, keep on 
       jumping.  Take the [left] turn this time.  With a lot of hard
       work (and battles), you'll get through it.
    
       Go foward and up up up to the light.  Examine the two chests.
       There will be a rumbling sound.
    
       Go back down.  Walk down, retracing your steps.  When you reach
       the place where there used to be a strong current (weeds around
       the tunnel), go [right].  Keep on walking down the weedy tunnel
       until you get sucked right in.  Go up to the light.
    
       Open the chest and equip Fei with the Deathblower 2.  Enter the
       door.

       Exit the thing by going to that glasslike wall and examining it.
       Go to the last elevator on the [left] (/SOUTHWEST\). Use it.  Exit
       the place again.  Go down the elevator.
    
       Go to the third elevator.  It should ask "Return to 12-3-6" when
       you examine it.  Talk to the guy.  Choose "Yeah, sure."  Follow him
       out the pod.
    
       Walk to the [right] of the elevator.  There should be wall with
       a reddish light.  Talk to the person standing by it.
    
       Enter the maze.  Walk forward.  Go to the next room. Ride on the
       elevator on the next room (last elevator).  Walk /NORTHEAST\ and 
       down the stairs.  Open the door.
    
       Before you walk around, press the R1 and L1 button.  Look around.
       You should see a floating gray triangle.  Avoid being seen by them.
       If you have played Metal Gear, this shouldn't be a problem. There is
       more than one of them so don't try to escape in one run.  Either
       side has a floating triangle.  The triangles can see front and back
       but not through walls.  Go to the right side and at the end is a 
       door.  Open it.
    
       Go down the stairs.  Use the elevator to go up. Go to the next room.
       Then walk /NORTHEAST\.  
    
       A sequence follows.
    
       Enter the door.  Walk to the other side of the room and open the
       door.  Go through the next door.
    
       Suddenly a change in mood here.  Talk to people until you reach
       the end on the [right].  Elly should say something about the
       ceremony.
    
       Go to the middle of the place.  There should be doorways with white
       lights flooding out.  Enter the place.  The guy on the left should
       be selling tickets.  Choose "Buy and Sell." The middle store sells 
       weapons while the one on the [right] sells items.
    
       Leave the place.  Go to the [right] and enter the building with
       revolving doors.
    
       Go to the elevator on the center of the room.  Use it to go up.
       Open the door on the /EAST\.  Say "PLEASE."  Leave the room and
       on the room on the other side (/WEST\) is a memory cube.  Save your

       Run to the [right] until you reach the end.  Talk to the guard.  
       Walk inside.
    
       A sequence follows.
    
          o TIPS ON ENEMIES
          o Security Cube - in the beginning you will be able to cause only
          o    1 HP damage.  Later, they will do an Eth Def UP/Def DOWN or
          o    Eth Def DOWN/Def Up and you know what attack will they be
          o    vulnerable to. 
    
       You have to go the /WEST\.  Keep on running and cross those little
       bridges if you have to.  At the end, you have to jump and climb up
       the red ladder.  Walk forward, jump over on obstructions.  Go down
       and up the red ladder again.  You will reach a part where you have
       to walk over two small pipes. Later you will reach a long red
       ladder.  Go up and you're out of the place.
    
       Walk /SOUTHWEST\ and examine the gate.  A sequence follows.  Enter
       the house.

       Go up the spiral staircase.  Go to the middle where you have to
       cross a bridge.  Go to the other side and pass the other bridge.
       Open the door to the building.  You'll be spotted.
     
       Citans seems to be hiding something from you. Hmmmm...  Go through
       the door, then to the other door.  You're back in the maze.  Walk
       until you reach the end.  Ride on the elevator.  Go up, open the
       door.  No, there aren't any flying triangles around here.  Go to
       the door in the middle and enter.  Use the elevator.  Keep on 
       walking /SOUTHWEST\ until you rech the end.  There is a door on the
       /SOUTH\ wall.  Use it to exit.
    
       Go to the middle part of the place where there used to be a guard.
       There's no guard now.  There is like a symmetically shaped blue
       thing on the ground.  Examine it.  Once inside, examine the flashing
       green thing on the [right].

       code 1 2 3 4 End Input. You should get a gold bullion.  Go back to
       the computer, this time on the left side.  Examine it.  You now
       have the code 0101.  Look at the screen.  Try doing some 
       combinations until you get this pattern on the screen:
    
          without rectangle, with rectangle, without, with then input data.
    
       Do the same thing again this time the opposite: with, without, with,
       without.  Here's something useful:
    
          When light is on, 1.  When light is off, 0.

      Turn [left] and keep on running and on the end, open the door.  Head
      [right] and open the door on the end (/SOUTHWEST\).  On the other end
      open the door. 
    
      Run /SOUTHWEST\.  Ignore the intersections--stay on the route to the
      /SOUTHWEST\.  At the end is a door.  Open it. On the ohter end of the

      I recommend you have Emeralda with you.

                      - END OF DISC 1 --- POP IN DISC 2 -
    
       It's almost unbelievable that Disc 1 lasted that long!  What else 
       could happen in the lives of Fei and Elly?
    
       Here's something you'll see on the scren, it's more of a poem...
       
              Dreaming...
    
              I was dreaming...
              Perhaps it may have been 
              but a long forgotten memory...
    
              A dream...
              A memory...
    
              Things remembered
              when one is asleep...
              Things forgotten
              when one is awake...
    
              Where the deepest layers
              of memories
              Become the outmost layers
              of one's dreams...
    
              Which are reality?
              Which are illusions?
              One cannot tell until
              one awakes...
    
              Or perhaps they are,
              At the same time, both
              Truth and fiction...
    
              A vast nebulous...
              With no boundaries...
    
              An emptiness equivalent
              To my own existence...
    
              I dreamt such a dream...
    
              A long...
              Never-ending,
              Dream...
    
       Here's another one:
    
              'Elly'...
              
              It was a time when she
              went by such a name.
              A time when we had met
              up with one another...
              A time when nothing
              mattered between us...
    
              It was better that way...
              Just two people,
              together...
    
              It was better to have
              left it that way...
    
       And another one *sob*
    
              I lied...
              I wasn't out of paint.
              I just feared I would
              finish the portrait.
              I wanted to keep on
              painting... forever.
    
              Dreams...
              
              A life of a man named
              Lacan...
              And the lives of countless
              other men...
    
       Back to the walkthrough.  Walk /WEST\ and open the door by the
       corner.  A sequence follows.
    
       Get down.  The door is at the /NORTH\ side.  Open it.  Go to the
       memory cube /SOUTH\ of the room.  Save your game!

       Now, go to the door on the /EAST\ of the room and open it.
    
       After the sequence, leave the room.  Anyways, here's an "In Case You
       Didn't Know" gossip.  The driver of the gear Calamity back in the 
       underground cave was Ol' Man Bal.

       Talk to the gear (Johnny).  Buy some weapons like Sonic GWhip for
       Bart, Yamane Sword for Citan... He sells an A Charger which restores
       50 fuel... Extra Ar+7... Sell your gold buillion, eyeball, fang, 
       etc.  Crescens (Emeralda's Gear) doesn't have a Fix Frame yet so 
       buy her one.
    
       You're in some cave again.  There will be some enemies here along 
       the way.
    
          o TIPS ON ENEMIES
          o Croaker Tribe -- easy to kill when you're in a gear.
          o Griffon -- this thing keeps on missing but so will your regular
          o    attacks.  Use level 1 deathblows.
          o Tusk-tusk -- these green things have lots of HPs!  Focus your
          o    attacks on one tusk-tusk at a time.  After five <X> attacks,
          o    it will die.
       
       There is a boulder by the blue memory cube.  Push it aside.  It's 
       not easy to move the boulder in your first try.  Some groups of
       Croaker Tribes will try to attack you.  If you're not in your gear,
       use CALL GEAR to get on your gear during battle.  I suggest that you
       use Vierge's Aerods to get rid of them in a single turn.  After 
       moving the boulder aside, replenish your fuel and hp by going to
       Shopkeeper Johnny.  The boulder seems to be moved around in a 
       counter clockwise direction if I'm not mistaken.  What I did was to 
       move it to the left first then I found myself at the back of the
       boulder.  I examined the boulder and Fei said something about 
       pushing it and so I did and it moved to the left and a lound sound
       was made by the boulder.  Get out of your gear and examine the door
       to get in.

      |=|  Like the Final Fantasy series, Xenogears will never be       |=|
      |=|  complete without some tricky puzzles.  At this point the     |=|
      |=|  puzzles you have come accross to are 1) Lone Wolf -- codes;  |=|
      |=|  2)Soul Vessel -- door lock area; four terminals; 3) The Stars|=|
      |=|  Know -- the door behind the boulder.                         |=|
      |=|                                                               |=|
      |=|  The next puzzle is hard.  It's like "Lost in Snow" in Final  |=|
      |=|  Fantasy VII.  Precision is required to be able to solve it.  |=|
      |=|===============================================================|=|
    
       On the next room is a puzzle.  Look around.  The front part of the
       room has three holes in it.  What you need to do is to put three
       large stones in each hole.  Now, first things first. Examine the
       back of the stones.  When I say BACK, I mean the side AWAY from the
       holes.  After reading the last stone (the one saying something about
       the "unseen"), go to wall on the [right] near the corner and examine
       the wall.  It should say something about "4 steps south, 10 steps
       west."  DO THAT FIRST.  When doing the 4 steps, walk continuously, 
       meaning, BIG STEPS, not the small ones.  You can do big steps by not
       letting go of the directional buttons.  After doing 4 steps, turn
       /SOUTH\ and do 10 BIG steps.  Yes, you will hit the wall on probably
       your 7th or 8th step but keep on walking until you reach 10 steps.
       Precisely 4 and 10 steps are needed.  Nothing more, nothing less.
       You will know that what you did was right when a stone fall from
       the ceiling.  DO NOT MOVE that stone yet.  Go to the standing stones
       (the three pillars) and go to the [left] one, the stone that says
       something about looking at the back of the stone.  Do that the 
       AFTER the the 4 steps, 10 steps.  After examining the back of the 
       stone, a second stone will fall down.  DO NOT MOVE that stone.
       The stone that fell is at the back of the second stone.  If you 
       notice, that stone is a stepping stone so that you can go up the
       second stone pillar.  Go up, be careful not to push the stone.  When
       you're at the top of the stone pillar, jump up and a third stone 
       will fall down.  Now, look at the fallen stones.  They are aligned 
       with the holes.  Push the stones to their CORRESPONDING holes.  If
       you did it right, the ground will shake and a very short sequence
       follows.  If you did wrong, nothing will happen.  You don't have to
       reset the game, just step out of the room and go back in again.  The
       stone will be gone. And you can start solving the puzzle again.
    
       When you get out, the yellow memory cube is still there.  Save your
       game if you want to.

       If you did right, step out of the room.  You'll see that there is
       a part of the place which collapsed therefore making it possible for
       you to jump on the other side.  Make a running jump and jump to the
       middle and do another running jump to reach the other end.  Open the
       door.
    
       Walk to the [right] side then get out of your gears.  Run and go to 
       the other end.  Open the next door.
    
       Go inside, open the chest and go to the next room.  Go to the end
       of the room.  Walk at the sides because there are trapdoors in
       the middle.  Examine the thing on the end.  Walk backwards a little
       and you'll fall down a trapdoor.  As you fall down, push the
       directional button towards the /EAST\ to prevent you from falling
       all the way.  You'll find yourself going in a room instead.  Open
       the door in the end.
    
       When you reach the middle of the room, a group of stalactites will
       go down (or stalagmites, whatever). When go down, jump on them and
       let them carry you to the top.  Go through the door and enter the
       room.
    
       In the next room, examine the place.  There is a pool and infront of
       are two white tiles.  On the left side of the left tile is a white
       diamond-shaped thing.  Another diamond-shaped thing is found on the
       other right side of the right tile.  These 4 things (2 diamond-
       shaped things and 2 tiles) are switches.  Let  
    
          left diamond,  A; 
          left tile,     B; 
          right tile,    C; 
          right diamond, D.
    
       Press/step on them in this order: D, C, A, B, A, B, D, C, A, B.
    
       Jump down and open the door.  Head /SOUTH\ and turn [right].  Push
       the round rock down.  Keep on walking until you reach the end.  Go
       [left] and open the door.  Run back to your gears then jump down.
       Open the door on the end.

       Go /NORTH\.  Get out of your gears and cross the narrow bridge.
       When you get to the other end, press L2+R2 and you'll be in your 
       gears again.  Jump and when you reach the higher part, get out
       of your gears and enter the door.
    
       Walk to the end then open the door.  Walk again then open the next
       door.  Walk then open the other end.  Looks familiar?  You're in
       the Anima Dungeon 2 now.  There's a computer on the [right] side.
       Examine it.

       Go to the /EAST\ doorway.  Enter.  On the end is a fixbot.  You may
       tune up your gears if you want to.  Go back.  Walk /NORTH\.  Go 
       inside.
     
       Do you remember your first fight with Vierge?  As I've said, it was
       one of the most difficult battle sequence in the entire game.  Hey,
       guess what?  Coming up is the MOST difficult battle sequence of them
       all!
    
       What is needed is careful planning.  First, a good team is needed.
       I recommend Fei, Maria and Rico.  Make sure that all of them have
       fix frame 30. Not more, not less.  To much fix frame hp (like 50
       and 90%) will consume a lot of fuel.  A 10% fix frame HP is just
       not enough.  Equip yourself with TWO ether ar +3 (available at the
       fix bot at the other room).  Knowing the capabilities of each gear
       and character is important. In my saved game, Steir and Siebzehn are
       not capable of infinity attacks.  Steir in my saved games can only
       reach attack level 1 while Seibzehn only up to level 2.  So when
       they reach their respective levels (maximum in my saved game) I
       do the deathblow attacks.  Fei meanwhile can reach infinity level so
       I do not execute any deathblow until I reach the infinity level.
       
       To tell you the truth, I was defeated my first battle with these 
       two.  But in my second one, after discovering Miang's gear will
       cause great ether damage (so I prepared my gears with a lot of 
       ether armors), I really didn't have a problem.  I think the battle
       with Vierge for the first time is more difficult because there are
       less options--less gear parts, weapons, and party members to choose
       from.

       from <carloal@i-avenue.com>
    
       Here's how I beat Miang.  By the way,  I followed your suggestion 
       about using 2 ether armors...but I found something pretty 
       interesting.  At the start of your fight, have 1 character attack
       her.  One attack and one attack only!!  After your hit she responds
       by raising her DEF and ETH ATTACK.  Now the normal thing to do is to
       keep attacking her, but all this does is raise her DEF and ETH 
       ATTACK more and more until she does great damage with her wave 4.  
       But if you just hit her just once, her wave 4 attack is so weak that 
       it doesn't damage your gears at all!  After her DEF and ETH ATTACK 
       goes back to normal, hit her again and wait (charge) again.  I know 
       it is a long and tedious way to beat Miang, but it's less risky.  
    
       Later on, you'll regain enough fuel to Fix Frame HP so that when she 
       does go all out (ETH ATK rises up) you can engage her head on with
       little worry.  You can also speed things up a little bit by timing
       your attack (in your gear at attack level 3) right before she fires
       so that when she settles down again you can nail her with an 
       infinity attack.  Remember, I've only tried this using 2 ether 
       armors for each gear, I don't know if the results are the same or
       not if equipped differently.

       from Dan Geng <honghu@san.rr.com>
      
       Here's something VERY useful when fighting Ophiomorph after 
       AMPHYSVENA.  If equipment is just right, meaning 60/25 armor and 2 
       ether ar +3 giving all three gears about >600 ether def, and use 
       50/6600 engine, after defeating amphysvena, here is what you do to 
       guarantee a very easy win.... Keep on charging all of your gears, 
       and continue to do so after Ophiomorph did three of those Wave #4. 
       At this point, the attack will not damage your gears at all, and 
       after each Wave#4, her defense AND ether attack level decrease. 
       After three of such attacks, use System Id and only use Fei and his 
       Infinity attacks. repeat this ENTIRE sequence after the Id effect 
       stops. (meaning wait for her to attack at least twice, otherwise, 
       her Wave #4 will damage your gears!) Hope ya find this little tip 
       useful.

       Leave through the doorway on the /NORTHEAST\ wall.  Go through the

       store owner.  Tune up your gears.  
    
       Go through the doorway on the [right] side of the store.  Walk down
       the stairs.  Turn [left] (/NORTHWEST\) and go to the non-functioning
       elevator. Keep on walking until you go up.  Go up the spiral 
       staircase and talk to Zephyr.
    
       The scene with Ramsus (Kahr) and Citan is so touching.  I was so 
       bored in the 'Dreams' chapter but looks like things are picking up
       again.  The snow falling down looks beautiful, don't they?  They're
       like white lights falling down from the sky.  The music is great,
       too, and like I've said before, I'd really really love to buy the
       soundtrack of Xenogears.

       Go down the stairscase and get back in through the ladder.  Walk
       back /SOUTHEAST\ and turn [left].  Enter the doorway.  On the
       other side, open the door.  Talk to Dan.  If you think that the
       scene of Ramsus with Citan was touching, I think this scene with
       Fei and Dan is more touching.  
    
       Leave the room.  Turn [right] then walk a bit then turn [left].
       Go back up.  Look at this circular room more closely.  There are
       two elevated platforms, one at the /EAST\ side, and the second one
       is on the /WEST\.  
    
       On the /SOUTH\ of the room is like a bar, a counter.  Jump over the 
       counter and go inside the doorway. 
    
       Go downstairs.  Enter the doorway on the /SOUTHWEST\.  A short
       sequence follows.  Talk to Hans again.  Leave the room and talk to
       the yellow dolphin.  Head /NORTH\ and go through the doorway.  
    
       To the [right] of the counter is an Aveh guard.  Talk to him.  He
       sells and buys items.  On the [right] side of the platform on the
       /WEST\ is an old man.  He buys and sells weapons.  Talk to him if
       you want.
    
       Go through the doorway on the platform on the /WEST\.

       Walk down /SOUTH\ then turn /EAST\.  In this part you will be
       encountering strong enemies.  I recommend that you escape from the

       through the doorway.
    
       Walk /SOUTHWEST\ and when you reach the octagon thing, go up using

       Walk to the octagon and go down through the yellow thing.  Walk
       back to the doorway.  Keep on walking until you reach an

       the first corner.  Enter the doorway.
    
       Keep on walking and when you reach an octagon, go up.  Walk /EAST\
       until you reach another octagon.  Step on the yellow thing, then
       jump up to a ledge and up again until you reach the light.  Examine
       it.  An octagon on the other side should turn.  Step down.
    
       Go /WEST\, the down using the yellow thing in the octagon.  Walk

       HP.
    
       Go down again and go back to the doorway.  On the other end, keep

       until you reach an octagon.  Don't go down, turn /NORTHEAST\.
       Walk.  On the next octagon, turn /SOUTHEAST\.  When you reach
       the octagon, jump on the yellow thing.  Don't go down, jump up.
       You can push the thing at the top to move the walkway.  Fall down
       on to the yellow thing and go down using it.  Turn /EAST\ and

       beam at the top of the octagon.  Examine the beam.
    
       Walk /SOUTHWEST\ the go up on the octagon.  Walk /SOUTH\, go down,
       then /WEST\, go up, /NORTHWEST\, /SOUTHWEST\, then /SOUTHEAST\.  
       Go through the doorway.
    
       Walk /SOUTH\ then turn /EAST\ then /SOUTH\.  When you reach an

       Go through the doorway.
    
       Keep on walking and when you reach an octagon, turn /SOUTHWEST\.
       Go up in the octagon then walk /SOUTH\.  In the next octagon, go
       down.  Walk /WEST\.  Go through the doorway.
      
       Keep on walking then turn /NORTHEAST\.  Keep on walking and when
       you reach the end, turn /NORTH\.  Walk until you reach the 
       doorway.  Go through it.  Keep on walking until you reach an 
       octagon.  Use it to go down.  Walk /EAST\.  The next octagon

       You can change your party members through the blue memory cube.
       Lemme tell you about the next enemies.  First, there's Deus.  He's
       surrounded by four glowing orbs--Metatron, Sundel, Harlute, and
       Marlute.  Although you can go to Deus immediately, I don't 
       recommend that.
    
       You can change party members between battles so use your weaker
       ones for the weaker enemies. You have to minimize your total HP
       damage by distributing them evenly among your members (sounds like
       economics--maximize profit, minimize losses).  Use your weaker ones
       to destroy the orbs and the stronger ones for Deus.
      
       Go /NORTH\.  Walk in.  From the room, there is a hole in the wall
       at the /NORTH\.  Enter it.  Walk inside the other room.  Open the
       door on the end.  In the next room, jump inside.
    
       As your members talk, keep on pressing <X> as fast as you can.  Once
       the conversation ends, examine the orbs passing by.  It moves from
       left to right.  The one on your left is Metatron followed by Sundel,
       the Marlute and Harlute.  You don't have to fight with all of them.
       It's ok if you don't fight Metatron and Markute who causes Fuel 
       Drain should be the last orb you should attack.
    
       You will have the option to change members.  Replace Fei with 
       someone a bit strong, like Citan.

       To tell you guys the truth, I haven't defeated Metatron, Marlute
       and Deus YET (as of May 24, 1999).  So I don't know what
       specifically happens after the defeating Deus.  However, I do 
       know that the next enemy will Urobolus according to the guys
       in #xenogears (Undernet).  I don't really know much about that
       guy but you'll have Fei with HP and Fuel replenished.

       --------------------------------------------------------------------
       from Bigman <cey@galesburg.net>
      
       In Xenogears when you get to Deus, kill all the orbs for an easier
       time killing Deus.  Here's what you do: do not use Fei in the orb
       battles or the there you going to use in the deus battle. For
       marlute use tank guards to stop fuel drain. Sundel: use weak
       characters. Metatron and Harlute: use the next stongest charaters.
       Killing all the orbs lowers Deus' HP.

       from Goh Ming Jun <7621170@fajar.sch.edu.sg>
    
       From what I have known, all the characters are capable of reaching
       the attack level three. Let me tell you some strategies that may aid
       you in defeating the boss. First, you must have a Frame HP 70 for
       all your characters who are fighting against the boss. Make sure you
       use your boosters on the first turn. Use the Z-Charges if you have
       it. No combo attacks, make sure to attack with the X button every
       turn. You must kill all four of the shining glowing orbs around
       Deus, without dong this, it is almost impossible to defeat Deus
       without killing the four orbs first. With this strategies, I really
       hope that you can defeat the boss. 
               
       --------------------------------------------------------------------
       from <Sceraphim@aol.com>  
     
       First, before even getting to Deus, I recommend that you have 
       purchased all the engine, armor upgrades. Second, there are three 
       fundamental items you should equip on each gear. GNR500, which 
       increases you engine output (more damage to enemy, less to you),
       DeathBlower1 (allows a [T]+[X] combo), and FixFrame for 50%. When 
       you have all of these, and you are in the orb room, look at the 
       orbs. AN electrical haze surrounds them , and they're all different 
       colors. The one you want first is Metatron, and his is white. 
       Then look for a yellow. That's Marlute (Bird on floor). Then, the
       other two are yours to pick. Don't use infinity combos, just use 
       your DeathBlower for the [T]+[X] combo. The GNR500 should increase 
       the damage potential of your gears, and with that and this advice, 
       you should be able to kick Deus' ass.
      
       -------------------------------------------------------------------- 
       from Judas Olmos <strider_jmo@yahoo.com>
     
       Deus isn't that hard to beat if you have a ton of money and are
       relentless in your attack.
      
       1. Get at least RX Metal 80/30 (but get at least 1 Z Gold 100) for
          all characters.
    
       2. Buy a ton of Drives for Chu-Chu. Eth Drives are most important
          because she can cure your Gear Hp so you won't need Fix Frame HP. 
          With 200 Ether, she'll recover 10000 HP. HP, VIT, and ETHDEF 
          Drives are also important. 
    
       3. Fight angels (Power Seraphs are good) for exp and try to get at
          least 3 Angel AR+1s to give to your best characters.
    
       4. I feel that Metatron and Sundel are the most important orbs to
          kill. I've beat the game without killing any orbs, but it is very
          hard to beat him if he uses Ultimate Break and then follows it up 
          with Earthly Anointment, etc.
    
       5. If you use the engine that gives you 8000 fuel, you can boost and
          you should have about half your fuel left at the end of the 
          battle if Deus uses Fuel Drain. Heavenly Anointment is more a 
          nuisance than anything. It's his confusion attack that you should 
          worry about.
    
       6. For Metatron and Sundel, I use Billy, Bart, and Emeralda. Billy
          will rely on his O attack and deathblows, Bart will have a GRNS50 
          to do major damage (as long as he doesn't miss Sundel goes down 
          QUICK), and Emeralda is fast enough to continually pound whoever 
          you face.
    
       7. Against Deus himself, I use Fei, Citan, and Chu-Chu. Chu-Chu 
          never attacks, only cures or defends. Fei and Citan boost, Citan 
          goes to level 3 and attadks(he rarely goes to infinity, I think 
          one of Deus's attacks or healing lowers Hyper Mode) and Fei uses 
          Kishin as soon as he gets it. Fei and Citan both have Z Gold 100, 
          Extra Ar DX, Ether Ar+3, Fei has Anti-Angel Sys and Citan has 
          Angel AR+1. Chu-chu should have the best equipment you can give 
          her, maybe a Speed ring S to make her faster. 
    
       8. Holy Pendants (Billy has one, you can buy them the 1st time 
          you're in Nisan) will give you Infinity Level for SIX rounds 
          instead of three.
    
       9. Deathblowers are great, but I only used them a few times on the
          first disk and against the last Ramsus/Miang battle.
    
      10. The last boss isn't too much trouble, boost and either go
          straight to Kishin or just stick with Reppu. If she starts using 
          that DEF Down, wait until she does it at least twice, THEN use 
          Inner Healing so you won't waste turns.
    
       -------------------------------------------------------------------- 
       from <Itz0rZx@aol.com>
    
       You only need to take out 2 ORBS. The orbs you only need to take out
       is "Sundel", and that monster that just lies on the floor. After you 
       defeat them.  Have Emerelda in your party. I used Citan, Fei, 
       Emerelda. Ok make sure you have good accesories. Here were mine:
    
           Fei- GNSR50, Extra Armor DX, Extra Armor DX
    
           Emerelda- GNSR50- Extra Armor DX, Frame HP 10
    
           Citan- GNSR50- Extra Armor DX, Frame HP 10
    
       As soon as you start the match. Have Emerelda to INFINITY. Just keep
       pushing the X button, not doing any death blows, same with Fei. And 
       Citan. Just do normal attacks. Member keep your Hp over 10,000...
       Fei's HP was 38,000.  Citan's was 30,000. Emeralda was 28,000. After 
       you have INFINITY on Emeralda. 
    
       Use Dark Force. It should take out about 10,000 if you have GNSR50. 
       If you have GNSR20 it'll take out about 8,000. Fei's INFINITY use
       his strongest one. It should take out about 12,000+. And nothing for
       Citan just attack.

       I just beat the game yesterday and the following is the way I did 
       it.  Hopefully, this will help you out too.  I killed 3 out of the 4 
       orbs, only leaving Marlute alive.  Then, I have my characters equip 
       tank guards against the fight with Dues.  I used this strategy so 
       that Dues wastes some attacks by trying Fuel Drain (obviously, to no 
       effect).  Better than all his attacks doing legit damage, right?  I 
       used Fei, Citan, and Emeralda in this fight (this is the only time I 
       use Fei and Emeralda) because Emeralda and Citan are both very quick 
       (therefore, can get to infinity in less time).  For Metatron, I
       suggest using Bart for his Wild Smile (Metatron can dodge X attacks
       sometimes) and Citan to shield against the Earthly Anointment attack
       (the only time I used him outside of Dues).  Bart's Wild Smile is
       also good against Sundel.  As with the fight with Urobolus, it 
       really helps to have the level 3 infinity deathblow (Kishin).
    
       --------------------------------------------------------------------
       from <NeoCitan@aol.com>
    
       I didn't kill any of the orbs.  I went straight ahead and killed him
       directly I think if you have 3 really good people this is the 
       fastest and easiest way. And I used  Fei,Citan, Bart to beat him.  
       And Fei's gear was the only one that could reach infinity. 
       --------------------------------------------------------------------
       from <AERobinson@bigfoot.com>
    
       Well, I just beat the game yesterday, and I must say it was easier 
       than expected. I used Fei, Citan and Emeralda for all the orbs and 
       Deus. Gave Fei the Holy Pendant, SpeedShoes and GRNS50, and let him 
       attack until he hit hypermode. Emeralda had 3 Power Magics, 
       EtherDoubler and 2 EtherStoneLgs, and she was probably the most 
       powerful character out there, doing at least 8000 damage with each 
       spell. Citan was mostly useless, though he delivered the final blow,
       the only deathblow he got off.
     
       I defeated all the orbs, and for the most part they were easy. On
       Deus himself, it was almost laughable. I cut him to ribbons before 
       Fei could even hit hypermode. Each character was about lvl 75 or so. 
       And I didn't think I could beat him going into it.
    
       --------------------------------------------------------------------
       from <arcticfox@mindspring.com>
    
       First, figure out what two characters you want to be your most
       powerful (they will accompany Fei to attack the Deus core). Assure 
       that these two (as well as Fei) have the best of the best tune-ups. 
       I used Fei (duh<g>), Citan and Rico (although Rico didn't have the 
       best armor and engine at the time).  Also, if you have the Speed
       Shoes put those on Fei (it's a character item, not a gear item).
       This will halve his turns, and is VERY useful.
    
       Now, for the equipment. I had everyone using Fix Frame 30%. The 
       other two slots are free for your choice; I suggest giving Fei a Z 
       Charger to make sure that he doesn't run out of Fix Frames (and if 
       you have more than one, try giving it to another person). You can 
       also give someone a GNSR20 if you have them, however I didn't.
    
       Now, on to the fighting. Fighting all 4 orbs is not only difficult 
       on its own, but it is also taxing on your characters. Instead of 
       doing that, I suggest you look for the orb emitting the white energy 
       spray (the stuff coming off the orb itself, look closely!). This orb 
       is Sundel, and he is Dues' healing power. Use three characters that 
       will NOT be in the fight against Deus to defeat this orb (Sundel is 
       easy, just pound him; I suggest a fast person like Emeralda to speed 
       it along).
    
       Having defeated Sundel the healing power, you can go ahead and hit
       the core with your three powerful characters. I know you might be 
       itching to kill the rest of them, but that isn't necessary. In fact, 
       when I fought Deus, I accidentally went to the core without 
       equipping Fei's gear with a third item<g>.
    
       Okay, the Deus fight. The entire fight rests almost entirely on Fei
       achieving and using his infinite deathblow (use Kishin, the X 
       attack). Fei will need to attack three times, use the X attack for 
       all three times, then he's free to pound away three times for 9999 
       each turn (and Deus only has a total of 45000, so 4-5 of these will 
       kill it, or less depending on how much damage the other two 
       characters do). Keep your HP above 12000, and if necessary have the
       other two characters devote more of their time to healing (you want
       them alive to take some of the single-attack hits).
    
       Using the above advice, Deus shouldn't be too difficult. I hope
       you'll able to complete this unbelievable story without too much 
       frustration:).

       from <psycrow@airmail.net>
    
       When i went after Deus, Fei was only on level 65 and with Level 2
       deathblows.  I soon realized that I had to defeat 3 of the 4 orbs 
       (Harlute isn't worth the trouble, it doesnt really do anything) in 
       order for Deus to be weak enough to be killed with by such weak 
       characters.  So, here's what I did..
    
       1. I equipped all my gears with -two- Extra Ar DX's and either a 50 
          or 70% frame restorer.  Simple, cheap and effective.
     
       2. I took Maria, Bart and Billy-- my second-best group-- and headed
          straight for the toughest orb, Metatron, using thier best L1 
          Deathblows.
    
       3. After disposing of Metatron, i took the most damaged and fuel-
          drained party member (which happened to be Billy) and replaced 
          him with Chu-Chu*, and went for Sundel, still using Maria and 
          Bart's L1's.
    
       4. After Sundel, I once again replaced the weakest character.  My
          party now consisted of Maria, Rico and Chu-Chu.  Then I fought 
          Marlute (who, for some reason, you cant Deathblow) using basic X 
          attacks while Chu-Chu kept healing.
    
       5. After equipping Emeralda's character with an EtherDoubler, I was
          now ready to take on Deus with her, Fei and Citan.  Even if my
          remaining characters had been strong enough to take on Harlute, I
          assure you, it would not have been worth the trouble.
       
       6. Destoying Deus now was not too difficult.  Emeralda used her
          extra-powered Ether attacks, only using fuel to heal
          periodically.  Fei and Citan used thier L1 Deathblows.  Even with 
          my low levels and equipment, Deus didn't stand a chance.
    
       7. Urobolus isn't even worth worrying about.  She won't even get of
          1/3 of your damage before you creamate her with any attack you
          see fit.
    
       *Note: Yes, I know Chu-Chu is a worthless piece of fluff.  But there 
        are two good things about her.  The first: she can serve as a
        target and mildly heal others before she dies.  The other: Between 
        battles, just use an Omegasol and she'll be ready to serve her 
        purpose in the next battle.
    
        Hopefully this will help all of you out there who are as lazy as I
        am to keep from spending too much time having to prepare for the 
        final battle :) With this technique, destroying Deus with whoosy 
        characters isn't all that tough.

       First, goto the underground city at the lighthouse where you can 
       make Emeralda grow up and get at least three Z-Chargers, you can get 
       one free inside the subway car when you go down the manhole, and you 
       can get the rest from Big Joe's shop in there, they are expensive
       though, 50,000 gp for each charger (one easy but tedious way to get 
       money is by going into Big Joe's shop over and over again, everytime
       you step out the door and back in again you can obtain new free
       stuff near Big Joe, most of the items are useless, but alot of the
       times you can get Billy's Matchlock gun, which you can immediately
       sell back to Big Joe for 6,000 gp).
    
       After you get to the final dungeon, do not use Fei's xenogear to 
       fight the ORBS, you need him at full strength to fight DEUS,
       instead, rotate all your other characters around to fight the ORBS,
       and for each battle, equip the fighting gears with your highest
       armor, a Frame HP50, and a Z-Charger, and also equip the character
       whose gear has the best chance of attaining infinity attack with a
       holy pendant, avoid healing your armor unless it's so low the ORBS'
       next attack will probably kill you (because the lower your hp the
       more likely you will attain infinity attack), dont worry about
       saving them to fight DEUS, you wont need them, Fei can beat him all
       by himself if equipped as prescribed (which is what i did, i wind up
       fighting DEUS with Fei alone because DEUS' first attack was so
       powerful, something over 8,000 hp damage, it KO my other gears
       before they had a chance to fight), you can still use your other
       gears in the DEUS fight, but make sure they have at least 9,000 hp
       left.

      THE LIGHTHOUSE by Daniel Geng <honghu@san.rr.com>
    
      (Note: the lighthouse is a place accessible only on the "second world
       map, that is, the map revealed after Solaris crashed to the ground.
       I highly recommend that you go to this place and to Duneman's Isle
       before going to Deus to build yourself up.)
     
      Later on, the best place would be in the light-house. After the birth 
      of Deus, before you actually have to fight it, you can explore the 
      world in your air-ship, however you spell that. First, go to the
      house of the "fat guy who worked with nanomachines" and he'll give 
      you 2 nice armors, one for the guys, the other for the girls. Next, 
      south of Deus, there's a yellow dot, that is the light-house. change 
      your party members, and I suggest Fei, Citan, and Emeralda, they are 
      the fastest and more less most powerful. Speed will be very useful 
      once inside, you'll know what I mean...
    
      Inside the light-house, it's the remains of a "20th century city."
      First, go around, pick up everything in the treasure box. Then, every 
      place with a yellow light, Fei will say something like we can get off 
      and walk inside" or soemthing, and you do exactly that. Each place
      you go in them has exactly one treasure box, and at the place where 
      it looks like a TV station, you can save downstairs, and walk 
      upstairs, turn on the machine in the front right, and there will be a 
      video sequence, explaining that Fei and Elly created Emeralda around 
      4000 years ago, (which is our time, I guess the story occured at 
      around 6,000 AD). There will be a big parking lot and a place in the 
      ground that collapsed. go inside, keep on going until you reach the 
      abandoned train. go to the end and examine it and you'll find a Z-
      charger, which you'll want to sell for a lot of G. If you don't have 
      3 Tank Guard, this is the last opportunity to get them. They'll be
      essential when fighting Deus.
    
      One thing you want to do as soon as possible is to go find Big Joe,
      that is IF you have some money left after all the gear upgrading. He 
      has some of the nicest and most expensive items as well as gear 
      upgrades. Although some engines and armors are "impressive" I suggest
      you keep the X70-8000 engine, but do upgrade your armor to Z80/E30 or 
      whatever the darn name is, 'cuz not only does it give you 800 points 
      of defense, it also gives you 300 points of ether defense. It's also 
      cheaper than the 900 and 1,000 armors. There will be a frame upgrade 
      for Rico and Maria's gears which is worth looking into, and also get 
      the GNR50 which one guy talked about. An "attractive" thing will be 
      the Z-charger, which charges 500 fuel per turn, but i don't suggest 
      that since it decreases the gear's agility by 2, which is very 
      significant. Other items he has includes stuff that'll increase
      ether, defense, ether defense, and attack by 1, or health by 20 
      and ether ability by 5, which are NOT worth getting since you'll want 
      your character to be at a very high level anyway, and the battle
      inside Deus only involves gears. Also, I don't recommend refueling 
      with Big Joe, since you can get your gears refueled free, which i'll 
      tell ya a bit later. Lastly, everytime you go out and in where big 
      joe is, the 4 treasure boxes will be back, but they usually have 
      really cheap stuff. Rarely you'll find a jerky, an eyeball, or a gun, 
      so it's not worth running in and out.
    
      Inside the light-house, there will be 6 types of enemies:
      The attack you want to use the most is Triangle, since they are the
      most accurate. 
    
          1.  The dragon is the easiest (after the 80/30 armor upgrade, and 
              "ether ar+3" which adds 200 ether defense, and "ar +7" or 
              above, which adds 80 to 100 physical defense, he won't do ANY 
              damage. I suggest a "Fix Frame 50" inside the light-house, 70 
              takes too much fuel and 30 isn't enough), and that's the time 
              I suggest you to use triangles, build everyone to "infinity" 
              and charge fuel, which will then charge at a rate of
              300/turn. (one other thing...after your 4th attack, if you 
              have not reached infinity, just keep on charging your fuel if 
              necessary, and eventually, you'll get there.)
    
          2.  Hammerhead always comes in 6, and the best thing to do is use 
              Emeralda's ether attack, with 6 ether points, you'll have 
              killed all of them. If not, those things are very fast, 
              you'll be looking at quite a bit of damage.
    
          3.  The "raptor like things" (4 in a group) and the 
    
          4.  Little "village people with spears" (6 each group) only do 1 
              point of damage per hit, so play around with those. The 
              "village people" is also a good place to refuel.
    
          5.  Remember the thing with a big lady's head, fin like things 
              and no actual body, which puts everyone to sleep? well, they 
              come in three here, and if you have a slow gear here, then 
              you are SCREWED! 'cuz if not killed in the first round, 
              they'll reduce everyone's hit points by HALF, character 
              or gear, so speed is everything, kill it first!
    
          6.  Now the most annoying and hardest things inside the light-
              house are those griffith looking things, ya know, the "huge 
              birds that runs on 4 legs."  They'll (2 per group) do almost 
              4,000 points of damage per hit and they are extremely fast. 
              Yes, faster than Emeralda's gear. Your faster gears 
              (Emeralda's and Citan's) will be able to block or avoid it 
              better than Fei's, but will still sustain heavy damage, so 
              have the fix frame 50 handy. This is also the only thing I
              suggest using X attacks for. Although they'll avoid most of 
              Fei's attacks, some of Emeralda's and few of Citan's but it's
              worth a gamble. Remember the one you hit, and use 1 level one
              deathblow on it and i'll die. (around 6,000-7,000 hit 
              points.)
    
      Now, after you gathered 99 fangs or runs out of fuel/armor, get out 
      of there, go on your airship, press the Square to get inside your 
      airship, your gears will be refuled FREE! then launch the ship and go 
      to Kieslev.  There, you'll be able to exchange items for money, and 
      you get the most out of your fangs, eyeballs, scales, jerkies, meats, 
      and steaks.
    
      The longest I was able to stay in the light-house without refuel was
      around 2 hours, which was kinda stupid 'cuz fangs will pile up very
      fast and anything above 99 will not be kept track of. Whenever you
      are satisfied with everyone's levels, (at least 80 for Fei) which 
      goes up at an average rate of about 45 minutes per level, go on the 
      world map and learn your deathblows! Citan's with a sword was cool, 
      and so are the final deathblows for everyone. While on the world map, 
      besides the old enemies, there will be 3 types of "angels." The one 
      with a halo and only appears by itself, I suggest use Fei's Kamikei, 
      which kills it in one turn. if you are in gears, then you are screwed 
      'cuz one "halo angel attack" will damage your gear from about 7,000 
      usually, and 9,999 on the Xenogear. For the one with a big circle in 
      the middle of its body, they come in 2, but a bit slow, and only 
      damage 150 or so on the characters, generally. Use Yamikei twice to 
      kill both, or call your gears. As for the last kind, you have no 
      choice but to call gears, or at least one person's gear so they'll 
      focus their attack on that while Fei uses Yamikei. Personally, I 
      loved using Yamikei since its so damn powerful.

       THANKS TO EVERYONE ESPECIALLY TO MY FRIEND JOHN BERT WHO
       CONVINCED ME TO PLAY THIS GAME--I DIDN'T FEEL LIKE PLAYING
       XENOGEARS WHEN I SAW THE FIRST PART OF THE GAME.
    
       I'm currently working on SILENT HILL now.
