    Frequently Asked Questions--READ BEFORE YOU ASK!
    Alright, for those who simply do not get this game, I
    am tired of you asking me the same thing  over and
    over and over and over and over and over and over and
    over again. Someone that has  volunteered to answer
    some questions you may have is highwind002. Instant
    message him for questions, he knows just about
    everything. I am taking my AIM off, so, sorry.
    Q- Have you  beat Kingdom Hearts?
    A- I have now beat it, yes!
    Q- How do I get the secret ending?
    A- Beat ALL worlds,get ALL 99 dalmations, and win the
       Hades Cup. You do NOT need the Ansem Reports, OR
       anything else!
    Q- Where are puppies 60-63?
    A- You must defeat Malificient, then when returning
       to Hollow Bastion go to the Chapel and  go up the
       stairs to the left, and they are in a chest at the
    Q- After you beat Monstro, can you ever go back?
    A- YES! Keep going back and forth from Agrabah to
       Atlantica and vise versa. It will rarely appear.
    Q- Why Don't You have Ultima Weapon?
    A- I do now!!!
    Q- Where do I find  pups 58-60?
    A- In the Queen's Castle, in the Bizzare room, use
       the glide ability on the yellow pot.
    Q- Is it  possible to lock Monstro?
    A- Nope, there is not a keyhole in Monstro. But, you
       do need to complete it to get the secret ending,
       because you get High Jump. High Jump is vital to
       get some of the puppies, which you must have to
       get the secret ending.
    Q- How do I attach a torn page?
    A- Just go to the book in Merlin's House, on the bed.
       Some people seem to think that when you go to the
       book, it should attach. Alot of people are mad
       because there's nothing to do here in the 100
       Acre Wood. Chances are, you haven't snuck up on
       Piglet. Go up behind him in the tree and talk to
       him. From here on out, Torn Page's turn into Items
       once you complete a 100 Acre Wood Mini-Game.
    Q- Can I go back to Neverland Clock Tower?
    A- Well, YEAH ...talk to Tinkerbell in the ships
    Q- Why did (blank) happen?
    A- Why are you asking me? I didn't make the game...
    Q- (not really a question,BUT...) You need this for
       the Secret Ending.
    A- No you do not.

    Sephiroth   - The Platinum Match at the Coliseum
                  after locking Hollow Bastion
    //****Ultimate Sephiroth Stradegy!****\\
    Submitted By: TELL ME WHO YOU ARE.
    Alright...my strategy might seem...hm...really
    different and hard.
    1. Aero/Aerora/Aeroga
    2. Items like Elixir
    I didn't know how to get Curaga at the time...so I
    just used Cura whenever I needed to.
    1. 2 MP Rages, MP Haste, Second Chance, Guard, Dodge
    Roll, and Superglide. Strat for 1st form: Now I've
    seen people write that they used Aero/Aerora/Aeroga at
    the start. Well you don't need it. Sephiroth's sword
    is oh...bout as big as he is. So...run as far as how
    tall Seph is to him then just jump high enough (NOT
    TOO HIGH!). If you run just close enough to him, he'll
    do his horizontal slash. After jumping over his
    horizontal slash, hit the X button when you're close
    enough to him. Follow the hit with three more X
    presses. He'll vanish after the fourth hit. Ok..I did
    a little bit of experimenting...and he will appear 2
    seconds after he vanishes. So..count 2 full
    LOCK ON AT THE RIGHT AFTER. So it's..hit square then
    R1 right after hitting square. If timed right..you'll
    block Seph's dashing slash and face him. THIS HAS
    2 SECONDS. After blocking his slash, repeat the
    HITTING process and then do the BLOCKING process over
    and over again. If you're ever hit..keep a distance
    from Seph, then CURE right away when you're health bar
    is almost or drained at the half way point.
    Summary of Strat 1: Run up to Seph as far as how tall
    he is then quickly jump over his horizontal slash
    (REMEMBER NOT TO HIGH) and then hit him once, land
    back down, then follow it with 3 more hits. Count two
    seconds then hit square and R1 right after that to
    block his dashing slash at the right time. Repeat
    these two processes over and over again til you get a
    little bit past his Orange life bar. At a distance,
    use CURE whenever you're health bar is almost or
    drained at the half way point of your health bar. *USE
    2.Strat for 2nd form: Now Seph will start to run like
    hell at this point. HE ALSO HAS THE MOVE SIN FERNAL.
    HIM THEN SLASH HIM FOUR TIMES. Keep your distance from
    him until he vanishes. NOW WHEN HE VANISHES HE'LL
    toward him. By doing this, you will roll underneath
    him and his dashing slash AND NOT GET HIT. YOU SHOULD
    Summary of Strat 2: WHENEVER SEPH USES SIN FERNAL,
    distance from Seph. When he vanishes and reappears
    behind you, quickly dodge roll toward him to evade his
    slash and him. You should be close enough, so hit him
    4 times. Block right away when he starts his Omnislash
    type move, count three of the slashes he does After 4
    blocks, run away from him and DODGE ROLL to the side
    when you see the energy wave coming at you. Repeat
    these three processes over and over again. USE CURE
    3.Strat for 3rd and Final form: Now Seph is pissed and
    use his mighty power on you. He now has a tornado type
    slash and his ordinary dashing slash. He also has his
    Omnislash type move and Sin Fernal. HE ALSO HAS A
    SLASH. Quickly run up to him and slash him four times.
    Use the same strategy used for his second form. For
    his METEOR MOVE, let the comets hit you to restore
    See? My strategy is different, confusing, and hard.
    Hey..works for me. TOOK ME AN HOUR OR SO TO COOK UP MY
    OWN STRATEGY TO BEAT SEPHY. But I didn't need to use
    any Aero and its forms...or any elixirs. I had to rely
    on Cura the entire time. Later on when I beat him
    after and had Curaga..it helped better. Thanks for
    your time.
    Ice Titan  - The Gold match after the Hades  Cup
    //**Stradegy for Ice Titan**\\
    Submitted By: Heyer Valice
    He launches a bunch of ice crystals at you during the
    fight. You have to have Sora bat them back at him.
    It's best to roll around while he does any other
    attack, and just keep hitting him with his own ice
    shards. Eventually, he falls to his knees for a time,
    where you can actually start hitting him with things
    like Ragnarok. Also, you cant use Aero.
    Phantom     - Go to the  clock tower in Neverland
                  after locking Hollow Bastion
    //**Boss Stradegy for Phantom!**\\
    Submitted by: Teardrop Samurai
    Use magic corrosponding to the color. For example, if

                  after  unlocking Hollow Bastion.
    //**Boss Stradegy for Kurt Ziza**\\
    Submitted By: honorable dragon
    after talking to the carpet in aladins house and
    combat esures with kurt zisa, immediately cast aero,
    kurt places a spell on your party preventing ANY spell
    casting, in his first stage of attack is simple
    jumping around and using a slashing attack, when hes
    not doing these, attack the orbs in his hands, when
    both are destroyed, he sinks down and allows you to
    hit his bobbing head, after sustaining good damage,
    kurt gets up and moves in to his second mode, a big
    barrier that envelopes him, this time only magic with
    hurt him, so take his barrier down with magic and he
    will sink again. do a little more damage on him and he
    will get up and repeat his first set of attacks, only
    this time he is faster and doesnt allow a lot of time
    to attack his orbs like last time, and along with his
    previous attacks, now he will go airbourne and attack
    from there as well in the form of a vertical or
    horizontal spinning attacks that dash at you, the best
    way to dodge them is to dodge roll, for the vertical
    spinning, roll to the left or the right, for the
    horizontal, roll towards him right when hes baout to
    hit you, repeat this strategy till the big agrabah
    weapon is down for the count.
    V. Secret Cavern  in Traverse Town
    To get the secret Cavern in Traverse, you need to have
    a red trinity. Go to the Red Trinity in the Alleyway,
    and you will crash through the bars. This place leads
    to where you can talk to Leon(or Squall) and Aeris.
    Later, much later, in the game, you will need to go
    here to aquire a certain item which I do not want to
    spoil. Later in the game,(spoiler) it is a critical
    place where you meet Kairi, so it is a secret until
    that point, really.
    VI.Expert Mode
    At the beggining of the game, you can choose Expert
    mode as the  diffuculty setting. If you pick the sword
    at the begining of the game, it is considered "Ultra
    Hard". When you beat expert mode on any setting
    (sword/sheild/rod) you can see your overall statistics
    and some art. Pretty cool.
    VII. Gummi Ship Blueprints
    I, personally, hate the Gummi Ship, but heres some
    cool blueprints. Gepetto is the man inside Monstro the
    whale, and you cannot  talk to him until later.
    Kingdom  - Default
    Hyperion - Defeat 5000 heartless, learn all summons
                 and  talk to Gepetto
    Gepetto  - Complete the Monstro world and  talk to
    Cid      - Defeat 500  heartless and talk to Gepetto
    Leon     - Defeat 4000 heartless and talk to Gepetto
    Yuffie   - Defeat 1500 heartless and talk to Gepetto
    Aerith   - Defeat 3000 heartless and talk to Gepetto
    Cactuar  - Defeat 1000 heartless and talk to Gepetto
    Chocobo  - Enter and leave Gepetto's house 30 times,
    and go in and  talk to Pinnochio to get it.  If you
    don't get it, leave and  talk to him again, and do it
    until you  have it.
    For these blueprints, you get them for defeating the
    corrusponding blueprint for the enemy you kill. For
    exaple, when you fly the Gummi ship, if you shoot out
    a 'CINDY' , you will have the Cindy Blueprint. Not
    everything has one of these blueprints thought.
    Cindy              Bomb                Ifirit
    Shiva              Remora              Odin
    Lamia              Ahriman             Otomos
    Sandy              Imp                 Golem
    Sylph              Siren               Diablos
    Carbuncle          Stingray            Deathguis
    Mindy              Catoblepas          Typoon
    Goblin             Adamant             Alexander
    Leviathan          Ramuh               OMEGA
    Also, when you have gotten all of the 99 puppies, go
    to the Dalmation house and you get a huge collection
    of Gummi Ship Blue Prints.

    //**Rare Truffles**\\
    Submitted By: flipside
    I recently discovered a very effecient way to level up
    and get items at the same time involving rare
    truffles. I'd write my own faq but I really don't want
    to deal with it so I'll let you do the honors if you
    consider it worth mentioning. If you need mystery goo,
    power gems, elixers, megalixers, and experience, you
    want to fight rare truffles (those blue shrooms that
    jump around a lot). A word on fighting rare truffles,
    the best place to combo them is in Neverland on the
    deck of the ship. The reasons for this is simple, Sora
    can fly, and the rare truffles appear fairly often, I
    went there originally looking for power gems but
    somehow ended up getting more mystery goo than power
    gems. I like it better than the end of the world
    because they appear often and require less skill to
    juggle. I think they appear more often after Hollow
    Bastion but you can start right after Neverland. My
    usual path to get them to respawn was to go back and
    forth from the cabin save point to the deck of the
    ship. Simply go onto the deck, start flying, pick your
    target, and start hitting. The best part is that all
    you have to worry about is pressing X, because Sora
    will stay right under the truffle. The key to success
    is to time the hits so you get into a rhythem at which
    point you just start going up while juggling the
    truffle. Now unfortunately it is hard to control which
    way the truffles go so they will often land on the
    rigging, in a crows nest, or your keyblade will simply
    hit something else and fail to connect. This isn't
    that big of a problem though because there are 4
    truffles each time. Once you manage to make it above
    the rigging which will be after 20-30 hits depending
    on where you start, it's smooth sailing and all you
    have to do is pay attention to how high you hit the
    truffle. I usually elected to do one hit at a time as
    I felt most comfortable with this technique, but you
    can also time a 2 hit combo that is a bit faster. A
    good tactic is switching techniques to change the
    truffles direction if your near an obstacle. The two
    easiest truffles to juggle are at the front and rear
    of the ship since you are least likely to run into the
    rigging. Once you get good at it, you can usually
    juggle 2/4 of them all the way up to 100. As a final
    note, as to why truffle juggling is so great, you get
    MASSIVE experience points the longer you juggle. For
    those of you who like math, here's a nice formula to
    remember, the total experience gained from juggling a
    truffle can be calculated with n(n+1)/2 where n is the
    number of hits. If you make it all the way up to 100
    hits, guess what, that's 5050 exp! This beats fighting
    the rock and ice titan's any day becasue you'll also
    get 2 elixers, 1 mega-elixer, and 2 mystery goos (and
    come on, who doesn't like mystery goo). Let me know if
    you wanna use this within a couple days, otherwise I'm
    gonna submit it to someone else. btw, you don't have
    to use what i wrote.
    //**White Mushrooms**\\
    Submitted by: erickei
    Clearing the tent area, then the Bamboo Thicket, then
    the Cliff will ALWAYS result in all 3 areas respawning
    (keep doing them in that order). Particularly after
    Locking Hollow Bastion, this is an excellent place to
    power up and get rare items, even if the white shrooms
    don't show up. You fight Powerwilds (power gems),
    Wizards, Darkballs, Wyverns, and the little green
    wizards...and unlike HB, no Defenders! ^_^ So you can
    easily rack up the Bright, Lucid, and Shiny
    Crystals...and the occasional staff for Donald from
    the Wizards...
    //**Rare Truffles**\\
    Submitted by: Nick
    Easiest way to get shrooms-
    1. Got to Halloween town
    2. Go to graveyard
    3. Destroy every monster there-make sure no monster is
    4. Go to the cat statue thingie-examine it
    5. Kill all enemies here (note-can be black mushrooms
    6. Make sure no monster is left
    7. Take same route back to the graveyard
    8. You should find mushrooms there
    9. When done with mushrooms, save, and repeat to your
    hearts content
    You can find these Item's,and their location is here.

    To make this simply, when Wakka, Tidus, and Selphie ask you the
    questions, it determines how fast you level up. Theres a mulitude

    what.Answer all the questions with the first answer and you will
    level up fast.Answer all the questions with the second answer and
    you will have a normal level up pace.Answer all the questions with
    the third answer and you will level up at a slower pace.

    **//**Item List for Big Ben**\\***
    Submitted By: Kythlyn, IM him for Questions on This
    If you would like, you can submit info for this part.
    Neverland Clocktower (Big Ben) Item List by Kythlyn
    There are many doors on the clocktower, 12 of which
    have items inside.The doors will open one at a time
    depending on how long you have been playing.If you've
    been playing for less than 12 hours, then the number
    of hours represents which door will open.If you've
    been playing for more than 12 hours, then subtract 12
    hours from your total hours played to predict which
    door will open.The same goes for 24, 36, etc.A light
    will be visable in front of the current door with an
    item. Examine it.Once you get the item, that light
    will move down to the appropriate hour on the
    clock.After getting through Hallow Bastion for the
    FIRST time, a boss will be at the Clocktower, and you
    will not be able to get the items.
    The following item list was based on items found in
    Expert Mode.I have not yet confirmed whether or not
    the items vary based on difficulty.
    01:00    - Orichalcum
    02:00    - Power Up
    03:00    - Mythril Shard

    XIX. Leveling Up Tricks
    Sacrificing and Keeping Items
    This info was sent in by highwind002/Honorable Dragon
    Email HIM any questions for this part in Stars, k?
    His email is: honorabledragon@yahoo.com
    I am feeling typy so i will also put the starting
    stats for which weapon you pick and sacrifice. To put
    this simply, when you Keep or Sacrificing Item's at
    the beggining of the game, it determines how you will
    level up.
    Keep      Sacrifice      HP      MP      AP      STR      DEF
    Sword     Shield         18      2       3       6        1
    Sword     Staff          18      2       1       6        2
    Shield    Staff          18      2       1       5        4
    Shield    Sword          18      2       3       4        4
    Staff     Shield         18      3       3       5        1
    Staff     Sword          18      3       3       3        3
    To make this simply, when Wakka, Tidus, and Selphie
    ask you the questions, it determines how fast you
    level up. Theres a mulitude of availiable answers but
    to keep it simple heres what you say for what.Answer
    all the questions with the first answer and you will
    level up fast until level 40.Answer all the questions 
    with the second answer and you will have a normal level
    up pace.Answer all the questions with the third answer 
    and you will level up at a slower pace until level 40.
                   --|Destiny Islands|--
    Yes, it's very possible to stock up on supplies, and
    gain levels on the Destiny Islands. I've heard of some
    people leaving at level 16, but I don't have that much
    patients. When you gain a higher "score" than Riku,
    you will receive a potion, and some 'Pretty Stones'.
    |Battle Riku|
    Experience  : 5
    Tech Points : 1
    At first, since most people on the Destiny Islands are
    first starting out, it's not as easy to fight him,
    A. He is cheap(knocking you off the sides)
    B. He has more life/power/techniques/ect.
    C. It takes some time to beat him.
    It's best to fight him once you are sure you are good
    at fighting. When you block his techniques, you get 1
    TECH POINT, and if you manage to defeat him, you get a
    potion if your "score" is higher than his. To block
    his techniqus, strike right before he strikes you,
    resulting that your two wood pieces hit, making a
    successfull block.
    Racing Riku:
    The race is easy. When Kairi calls the whistle, don't
    follow Riku, no matter what. I have a route to take
    that has yet to make me fail, and it's not  hard,
    either. When the race begins, go off the edge right of
    the broken bridge(yes you heard right). Go straight
    through the water onto the sand, and up the stairs.
    From here, go straight and you will drop, and  go
    straight through the water. Go up the hill, jump on
    the platforms up to the Star, and jump down between
    the trees. Go straight to the right of the ract, and
    back where you came(left of the cave) and about a foot
    before you hit the wall, jump(in proportion of the
    game). Go down the stairs, through the water, and
    jump up and you have won the race. The only place you
    might have trouble is jumping up those ledges.
    Otherwise, it's the bets route I have found.
                   Tidus, Selphie, and Wakka
    Experience  : 2
    Tech Points : 2, if you block his back flip strike
    Tidus is not that hard. He does a flip strike that
    will give you 2 Tech points if you block it, and once
    you learn how to catch him with this, its the best way
    to get tech points. Now for the easiest way....
    Experience  : 2
    Tech Points : 1P for a regular throw, 2 for special
    The only reason this is not the best way is because
    it's easy to kill Wakka when you block his shots,
    because they fly right back at him most of the time.
    When he throws the ball, time it right, and you can
    smack it back at him. For  begginers.
    Experience  : 1
    Tech Points : 1
    There is not  much use to fight her, other than learn
    how she fights when you fight all 3 of them. You get
    one tech point to block her whip, and it can be

    Submitted by: Trealvyn_the_paladin
    Hi, I read your faq on telling how to level up at
    Destiny Islands and read how fighting Selphie isn't
    real good exp. Well, it is. In fact, in my opinion,
    she is the best one. She will do this leaping attack
    and automaticly hit you with the jump rope. If you
    counter in, then you will get 1 tech. But when you
    counter it, the jumprope will come back and hit her
    head, leaving you with one extra tech. She will keep
    on doing the same attack until you either mess up, get
    hit, or hit her. And the best thing is, SHE CAN NOT
    DIE FROM IT! Although it will get her hp down terribly
    low. I got to lvl 10 by doing this.
    |Fighting All 3 of them|
    Experience  : None
    Tech Points : Same as above
    Item        : Potion
    This, over all, can be tough. I recommend taking out
    Tidus, then Selphie, then Wakka. When Wakka is the
    last one, it'll be like child's play once you have
    learned how to hit his attacks back.
                    OTHER STRADEGIES TO USE
    This was submitted by CrazyCubeMonkey:
    After you reach level 40 your rate of leveling up
    reverses. The slow becomes fast, the fast becomes
    slow, and moderate stays the same. So it's actually
    best to level up slowly at the beginning because it
    takes about 100,000 less xp total to reach level 100.
    YJM's way to level up!
    Before sealing Hollow Bastion, the quickest way to
    level up is to fight Leon and Yuffie in the Pegasus
    Cup. Win the Pegasus Cup, then win again with Sora
    alone, then beat the time trial (3:00). Now you can
    choose to go straight to the Leon and Yuffie fight. I
    would suggest removing all items from Donald and Goofy
    since this is an easy fight and you don't want them
    wasting your stuff. You'll get 700 exp. each time you
    win. After your first visit to Hollow Bastion, the
    Hades Cup becomes available. Win the cup and beat the
    time trial (20:00) to choose your fights. I find that
    Behemoth, Hades, and the Rock Titan are all easy
    fights worth lots of experience. If you're good, you
    can beat up the Ice Titan in the Gold Match for 4,000
    exp. plus 28 for each icicle you deflect back at him.
    Beat the Hades Cup once to unlock the Gold Match. Then
    there's the Platinum Match...18,000 exp. Are you good
    enough to face the One Winged Angel (I listen to that
    song daily...so cool)?
    Darkside20's Stradegy:
    Hey, I learned through trying to get all the synthesis
    items to get the ultima, just need two more goos and
    can't seem to cast the right spells, but i learned a
    good way to level up is simply to stay in the hotel,
    battle the defenders, there are three there, then take
    out the wizards, go through the red room, into the
    green, defeat whatever is there, go back to the red
    room and into the hall, and repeat till you reach a
    satisfactory level. Right now I am at level 68. Which
    is also probably because I keep going to Atlantica to
    see if there are the truffles in the cave and as i go
    back and forth from the palace, i fight everything,
    and eventually level up. And a good way to take out
    those huge jelly fish that when hit enough but not
    kill burst into small ones, is to nail them with a
    barage of firagas. Well.. that's the tip.
