    v3Final 2/2/02: Added items I'd missed (Chocobo Wings, and Wings to Discovery)
    to Section V, and rewrote most of the Frequently Asked Questions for clarity.
    
    v2Final 1/2/02: Added seventh and eighth frequently asked questions.
    
    vFinal 12/25/01: The alphabetical bribe list by item is finished, complete 
    with the best deals for every item noted in section V.
    
    v0.5 12/22/01: Decided to list monsters in alphabetical order, finished the
    monster portion of the list, and began the alphabetical bribe list by item.
    I'll finish that tomorrow...
    
    v0.1 12/21/01: Created list, wrote out sections II and III, and debated 
    whether it would be better to have monsters organized by location, or 
    alphabetical. Not released to the public.
    
    
    -- II. Foreword / Contact Information --
    
    First, this is not a gameplay FAQ. This is a complete list of all the rare
    items you can acquire through Bribe, which monsters to Bribe for them, and the
    gil cost to accomplish such feats. If you need help figuring out the Sphere 
    Grid system, or want a walkthough, look elsewhere. Only monsters that you can 
    Bribe are listed - anything prior to Besaid, the Monster Arena monsters, and 
    all bosses with the exception of Lord Ochu and the Ultima Weapon, are not 
    bribable. All of this information can also be found in my Monster Encyclopedia,
    but I understand that not everyone wants to wade through 370k of text just to 
    find out where to obtain Winning Formulas (from Sand Worms, natch), hence this
    Bribe FAQ.
    
    If you have a submission or a question regarding bribery that I haven't 
    covered in this document, you may email me at circe@san.rr.com, or contact me 
    via AOL Instant Messenger as "Ceebsie". I'm also on the GameFAQs message boards
    as "Ceebs" occasionally. If your question is already answered in this FAQ, or 
    one of my FAQs, I will probably delete your email. I hate to be strict like 
    this, but I currently recieve between 20-40 letters per day about Final Fantasy
    X, most of which are from people who didn't read a FAQ well enough. I have a 
    full-time job, a part-time job, and a social life, and I simply don't have time
    to answer every email. I wish I did. I've done my best to make this document as
    complete and self-explanatory as possible, so please respect that, and don't 
    ask me to regurgitate material from it. The latest version of this guide, and 
    all the other ones I've written, can always be found at GameFAQs
    (http://www.gamefaqs.com/) and my site (http://home.san.rr.com/circe/). Please 
    take a look at them before finding fault with what may be an out-of-date 
    version.
    
    
    -- III. Frequently Asked Questions --
    
    1. What is Bribe?
    
      "Bribe" is quite possibly the funniest skill since the Tonberry (doink!) 
      summon in Final Fantasy VIII - you bribe enemies to go away, and leave rare
      items for you. There's something oddly humorous about seeing one of your 
      characters tiptoe up to a monster three times their size, and daintily give
      them some shiny gold gil, causing the monster to turn on its heel and flee.
      Although you can acquire just about every rare item without Bribe, you won't
      get enough of them to remodel your equipment, or really make a difference
      unless you Bribe like mad.
    
     
    2. Where is Bribe?
    
      Bribe is the last ability on Rikku's part of the Sphere Grid, located at the
      bottom center of the grid map, directly to the left of the loop with all of 
      Lulu's "-ra" spells.
    
    
    3. What does it take to Bribe?
    
      Cold hard gil, and lots of it. The exact cost to Bribe is twenty times a 
      particular monster's max HP - if the monster can't kill you, it's certainly 
      going to want to extort every last penny from you. They don't call them
      "fiends" for nothing. NEVER EVER bribe a monster that is afflicted by "Sleep"
      status, because sleeping monsters are not bribable, and you will have wasted
      any gil you used in doing so.
    
    
    4. Do some monsters offer better "deals" than others?
    
      Yes, definitely! For example, you can obtain Wings to Discovery from the
      Marlboro and the Great Marlboro, but the Marlboro charges you 540,000 gil for
      4 Wings to Discovery, while the Great Marlboro charges you 1,280,000 gil for
      8 Wings to Discovery - that's over twice as much for only twice as many 
      items. (Remember what I said about monsters extorting every last penny from
      you?) Another example is with Pendulums: the Master Tonberry will give you 3
      Pendulums for 960,000 gil, BUT the Ultima Weapon will give you 99 Pendulums
      for 1,400,000 gil. Now that is an incredible deal!
    
    
    5. So what are some must-bribe items?
    
      Some of the best deals for rare items include:
                   
      - Level 3 Key Sphere x40 for 900,000 gil from the Demonolith
      - Level 4 Key Sphere x2 for 196,000 gil from the Chimera Brain
      - White Magic Sphere x2 for 256,000 gil from the Dark Flan
      - Black Magic Sphere x2 for 152,000 gil from the Black Element
      - Skill Sphere x2 for 360,000 gil from the Zuu
      - Special Sphere x6 for 1,088,000 gil from the Adamantoise
      - Door to Tomorrow x2 for 74,000 gil from the Mech Leader
      - Mega Phoenix x2 for 8,600 gil from the Alcyone
      - Chocobo Wing x60 for 360,000 gil from the Machea
      - Ether Turbo x16 for 81,600 gil from the Thorn
      - Wings to Discovery x4 for 540,000 gil from the Marlboro
      - Pendulum x99 for 1,400,000 from the Ultima Weapon
      - Rename Card x10 for 157,000 gil from the Zaurus
      - Remedy x80 for 92,980 gil from the Lord Ochu
      - Winning Formula x15 for 900,000 from the Sand Worm
      - Supreme Gem x20 for 260,000 from the Halma
      - Healing Spring x20 for 90,000 from the Octopus
    
    
    6. Wow, where can I get that much gil?
    
      The Mimic Boxes in the Omega Ruins are pretty easy to defeat, and they leave
      behind 50,000 gil per battle - 100,000 gil if someone in your active party 
      is equipped with a weapon with the [Gillionaire] auto-ability. Alternately,
      you can repeatedly kill One-Eye at the Monster Arena, who will drop weapons
      with [Triple AP], which you can sell for 60,000+ gil apiece. For the 
      conditions to unlock One-Eye, please see my Monster Arena FAQ.
    
    
    7. I bribed a monster, but I got less or more of the number of items you list
    in your FAQ! Why?
    
      More often than not when you bribe a monster in the US release, it'll give 
      you an incorrect number of items for your money, or none at all (!). This
      was never the case in the Japanese import, so presumably Square decided
      they'd been too generous with bribery in the Japanese release, and randomized
      it. Bribe can also miss, even if the monster isn't sleeping. To save yourself
      some frustration, it would be a good idea to save before you bribe, so that
      you don't flush large amounts of gil down the drain.
    
      Summoner (summonerx@hotmail.com) submitted the following treatise on bribe 
      amount variations, which I am pasting verbatim:
    
      "20X hp seems to be a pretty sure spot for a successful bribe, but they often
      will leave for less.  Sometimes, 20X isn't even enough!  But, fortunately, an 
      unsuccessful bribe does NOT mean wasted Gil.  Each bribe attempt stacks with
      previous attempts and the monster has a chance of leaving again, using the 
      total amount of money given to it as the chance to leave.  Here's an example.
      I was trying to bribe a monster where 20X his hp was equal to 360,000 Gil.  I
      gave him 300,000 Gil and it missed.  The next turn I gave it 10 Gil and it 
      missed again.  The next turn I gave it another 10 Gil and it worked!  There's
      no way that a monster will leave if you only give it 10 Gil so I came to the 
      conclusion that it just keeps a running total of all the Gil you've tried to 
      bribe with.  I've found the best way to bribe is just hastega and bribe with 
      small amounts.  Another example.  Same monster.  I first throw 100,000, then 
      50,000, then 50,000, then 100, 100, 100....... after 6-7 attempts of giving it
      100 it finally went away.  Also, one last thing.  The number of items you get 
      is proportional to the amount of money you give it.  BUT, the rate of increase
      is LOGARITHMIC, so it usually DOESN'T pay to give it more Gil.  Another 
      example.  Same monster.  I usually pay him about 200,000 and I get about 30 or
      so of the item he leaves.  I tried 600,000 a couple times and got about 60 
      each time (how much he drops is random also).  I paid 3x the money and only 
      got 2x the items.  I also tried giving it 3 million and it dropped 99 items 
      :).  Also, I tried it on a monster with very low HP and only gave 2-3 items 
      usually.  20x it's HP was only about 9,000 Gil.  I gave it 3 million and it 
      only dropped about 15 items.  Diminishing returns at work here.  Try to bribe
      for as little as possible and you will usually get the most bang for your 
      buck."
    
      Wasnt that informative? Email Summoner with your praises.
    
    
    8. If I killed the Ultima Weapon or Lord Ochu, did I miss my chance to bribe 
    them?
    
      Yes. If you killed either of these pitifully easy bosses, you missed your
      chance to bribe them. Sorry, I hope that you have an earlier save...
