(*) Means that it is very difficult to get that item
* Invisible has unlimited stealth robe

Other notes and tips:
 - Things written in capitals are items you should try to get.
 - Steal2 means that you can rarely steal that item from the enemy; to succeed, if you are using an emulator, save/reload until you get it; otherwise cast reset.
 - Tonberi resets its status when he moves; therefore you can steal many Plumed Hats from him.
 - Bone Mail is the strongest mail in the game, but it turns your character into an undead, hence you cannot cure him in battle.
 - Mirage Vest has "image" cast on it; I don't know why, but it seems to me it doubles your power against Omega and ShinRyuu
Needed help:
 - You can steal Cursed Ring from Fury; how can you uncurse them?
 - Thing, when catched and released, will use BigGuard on your party, but it seems to me there is no way to learn it. (Apart from controlling StingRay, of course).

Beat ShinRyuu!!!
  You have to steal 8 (or almost 8) Dragoon Spears from Crystal dragon; to do this, save/reload just before stealing (if you are using an emulator, else use reset (Dimension magic)). All you characters must be equipped with the abilities "Jump" (Dragoon)and "Two handed" (Ninja). Equip everybody with two dragoon spears (every hit will be a critical one!), a mirage vest, a coral ring (to protect from "tidal wave"). When the battle begins, just jump as soon as you can. Shinryuu should be gone, leaving you the Ragnarok Sword and the "dragon crest" which says: "Your bravery praised for victory".

Beat Omega!!!
 Omega, in my humble opinion, is quite stronger than Shinryuu; here are my suggestions to beat him. Have a chemist mix a "maiden's kiss" with "revivify" on Omega (Kiss of blessing), which results in berserk + haste + image (this is the only way I found in order to berserk him); to evade his attacks:
  - Equip everybody with "Mirage vest" (this doubles your attack power, too);
  - have ability "Evade";
  - use golem (won't last long);
 Besides, you should:
  - have ability "preentive" (if all your party has it, it's better! :-));
  - have flame ring, to absorb some attacks;
 To attack him:
  - have a strong character equipped with two strong swords, such as Ragnarok and Excalibur;
  - have him (at least) equipped with "mirage vest";
  - use MagicSword Bolt3 on that character;
  - use X-Fight (archer); this is the way I destroyed it.
 Or, you might try to equip thunder rod, wall ring on everyone, and cast bolt3 on your party.
 Anyway, when you destroy it (I'm sure you will), you'll receive Omegamedal: "Your wisdom and bravery prevailed over the Ancients".
