    [01] I. Introduction
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    This FAQ was written by bremen to help all of you who may need it or for those
    of you who are just curious about the game.
    
    I decided to create an FAQ with all the information regarding all the enemies
    in the game, including the bosses.  The bosses will also have strategies along
    with their stats.

    [02] II. How To Use This Guide
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    Use the find feature in conjunction with the section search codes above
    listed on the "Table of Contents" to page through to specific sections of the
    FAQ. Basically, the FAQ is divided into 5 sections.  Section "III." (3) is
    the main part of the FAQ and probably the most useful.  Everything else is
    just extra.
    
    Key:
            HP  = Hit/Health Points
            EXP = Experience
            TP  = Tech Points
            EP  = Ether Points
            SP  = Skill Points

    Strategy:
            This Gnosis absorbed one of the A.G.W.S.'s and fused with it.  It
    looks like a cross between a squid/starfish/A.G.W.S. This should be a fairly
    simple battle, just use physical attacks and combos to bring it down quickly.

    Strategy:
    	When I reached this battle, I had not upgraded my A.G.W.S.'s.  I
    ignored them completely because I didn't think they were worth it.  As it
    turns out, I was correct.  However, it does make the battle difficult.
    Once you reach this point in the story, it is too late to upgrade your
    A.G.W.S.  The robot who will sell you stuff is gone for now.
    
    Note: If you do not upgrade your A.G.W.S. before the story advances to the
    point of fighting the boss, you will not be able to upgrade your A.G.W.S.
    until after the boss fight.  If your people are strong enough (level 10),
    you won't need to upgrade and you can save a little money like I did.
    
    At the start of the battle DOMO Carrier will select an event slot where it
    will perform a "Tremor" attack, that damages everyone in your party,
    everytime its turn is on that slot.  If it selects "Critical" as its slot it
    will make this battle much more difficult because its "Tremor" will be much
    stronger.  If it selects "Boost" then it will constantly boost ahead for
    extra turns.  Overall, hope it selects "Boost", it's easier.
    
    The key to this battle is boosting your characters.  This way you can try and
    limit the amount of times DOMO does its "Tremor" attack.  If you see DOMO
    coming around to land on the slot it picked as its "Tremor" slot, try to boost
    a character ahead into that slot to prevent DOMO from getting it off.
    
    Use lightning attacks against it and KOS-MOS R-Cannon works very well against
    this boss.  It should go down after a few rounds.

    Strategy:
            You can only use FAR attacks against this guy, so Jr. is a good
    character to have in your party.  Steal the items.
    
    Try to stay at full HP because occasionally he will pull out some bull garbage
    storm move that damages all your party.  I'm not sure what the deal is with
    this move but usually it was taking about 500 HP away from all my characters
    but all of a sudden he threw out two in a row on me once for 1000 HP damage
    to all my characters.  2000 damage at once to all chars!  Needless to say, I
    died and was extremely annoyed about it.
    
    Now, I would suggest setting All Guard on all three of your characters.  You
    can extract this level 4 skill for 500 skill points from the Shield Armor
    you picked up earlier.  It is very helpful.  You can also transfer Jr.'s
    steal ether to all three chars to get the items faster from him.
    
    The faster you can kill him, the less chance he will have of throwing out his
    storm attacks.  The second time I fought him, I killed him so fast he never
    got the chance to even use it once!

    with KOS-MOS and another attack using Shion.  That should easily finish him
    off.

    Strategy:
    
               Important:
               I highly recommend purchasing at least 1 Guard Pendant and 1
               Power Brace to extract the "Prevents Physical Attack Down" and
               "Prevents Physical Defense Down" skills from.  Without these
               skills an upcoming boss battle will be much more difficult.  You
               can also just buy 3 of each of them to equip if you don't want to
               waste your skill points.  You can buy these items at the item shop
               crystal a little ways back on this level (before the warehouse/
               shopping mall area).
    
    
    	Take out the Oudogogue's first.  They do an all-party attack each
    per round.  They will also heal Gargoyle 600 HP when it is damaged.  When you
    take out the 1st Oudogogue, Gargoyle will power up.  When you take out the
    2nd Oudogogue, Gargoyle will power up again.
    
    Do not use A.G.W.S.'s in this battle, they are two slow and ineffective.  I
    had my characters around level 17 when I attempted this battle.  My party
    consisted of Shion, Ziggy, and chaos.
    
    I used Shion primarily for healing and reviving.  Ziggy for his lightning
    attack and some healing.  chaos was the champ as far as attacking.  His
    Heavens Wrath attack will make or break you.  Make sure you have this attack
    set at HI speed.
    
    After the Oudogogue's are gone, just keep landing lightning attacks on
    Gargoyle and heal as often as possible.  He will go down after a tough fight.

    Strategy:
            Focus all your attacks on one of the Gigas or use all-enemy attacks
    like Storm Waltz & Angel Blow.  I used Shion, Jr., and chaos for this battle.
    Use Shion for healing/reviving and the other two for attacking.  You
    shouldn't have any problems with this guy.

    Strategy:
            Use beam attacks if you have them available.  This guy shouldn't
    be difficult for you.  If he is, you will be in trouble a little later.  I
    would suggest leveling up or allocated unused points, equipping chars with
    different equipment, etc., if you have trouble with this guy.  By this point
    all three of your main characters should have Revert and Medica All.  They
    should also be able to extract level 4 and possibly level 5 skills from
    accessories.  Make sure you have Angel Ring equipped or extracted for at
    least one character.  I would recommend extracting Speed up 25% from the
    speed shoes for all three chars and set it as one of their skills.  Along with
    HP Strong, W Special, All Guard, or Angel Ring.  If your characters have
    maxed out EATK stats, as they should if you have been following my guide,
    Medica All should heal everyone for around 500 HP each.  Revert should revive
    them with around 400-500 HP as well.

    Cash: 3000
    
    Strategy:
            Move Ziggy to be in front of MOMO (can do this before battle as well)
    so that Margulis "push to back row" attack will only do damage and not push you
    back. The same strategy applies here as in the battle with the A.G.W.S.'s.
    Do NOT use lightning attacks against Margulis.  It will either do 0 damage or
    heal him depending on the mode he is in.  Use physical attack combos and wear
    him down.  Make sure you use Ethers to restore EP and keep healing Ziggy/MOMO
    with Ether and items.  You can also try using a Stim on Ziggy to increase
    the amount of damage he does per attack.  Do not use Ziggy to do anything but
    guard and attack.  Margulis's attacks are devastating if you are not guarding.
    After what seems like ages, he will go down.
    
    Note: You can also just lose this battle and move on without wasting any
          items, time, etc.

    but I would exit the A.G.W.S. before it reaches 0 HP.  Once the Fish are out
    of the way, utilize "Tech" attacks on the Minotaur.  It should go down after a
    couple of rounds.

    Strategy:
            This battle is not easy.  Make sure you are at full health and EP
    before engaging this enemy.  I recommend having your fastest character
    equipped with the Angel Ring.  Also, have one of your characters equipped
    with the item that gives you a boost +1 at the start of battle.  This is very
    helpful.  Do not bother using A.G.W.S.'s in this battle unless you have them
    topped out and like using them.
    
    Proto Dora has a basic attack called the Steel Press that does around
    300-500 damage to everyone in your party.  So try and keep your people just
    above that in order to take advantage of the HP Strong you have equipped.
    Use Jr.'s Angelic Requiem or Storm Waltz, Ziggurat's Meteor Shot, and chaos'
    Angel Blow to take out the Schutz's first while still doing damage to Proto
    Dora.  Once the Schutz's are out of the way, focus all firepower on Proto
    Dora.  If you see Proto Dora call out something about recharging energy, get
    all your characters to max HP quickly.  He is about to unleash a devastating
    attack on your entire party.
    
    Eventually he will begin healing himself with some sort of relief aid drop.
    Just ignore it and keep pounding him and he will eventually go down.
    
    You will receive a Decoder 6 for defeating him.

            Make sure you steal the Shield Armor!!!  You can extract the skill
            All Guard from it that prevents ALL status effects.
            -------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This battle should be easy for you.  Just ignore the Boost Cancel he puts on
    you unless you really feel the need to remove it.  Just remember that if you
    have a positive spell like Quick on your character, when you use a refresh
    ether or something like that, it will also remove your GOOD status effects.
    
    Rianon Se has a Life Drain move that can damage your characters around 1000
    and gives that amount back to him, so watch out for it by keeping your
    characters healed up.
    
    Just use healing spells with Shion & chaos when needed.  My Shion and chaos
    were healing all characters for around 500 HP each.  If you want, you can put
    Shion behind Jr. or chaos (or whatever characters you have) to prevent him
    from pushing back one of your characters.  But it didn't really bother me.
    If one of my characters got pushed back, I would just use them to heal for
    a while until I could move them back.  Not a big deal.  He should go down
    easy.

    Strategy:
            So, you finally made it to the final battle, eh?  Good.  Let's get
    down to business.  Sophie Peithos will periodically spawn enemies called
    Jaldabaoth & Ratatosk in front of it.  This will be a futile effort on it's
    part using the strategy we will be using.  I have placed the stats of the
    Jaldabaoth & Ratatosk above as well.
    
    Well, sad to say, the end boss is extremely simple using this strategy, so,
    here we go.
    
    None of his attacks or his spawns' attacks do much damage.  Keep your people
    at around half health and use all enemy air attacks to damage Sophie Peithos
    as well as any Jaldabaoth's he throws in front of him.  If you do not take
    out the Jaldabaoth quickly enough it will self-destruct, damaging your party.
    Not to worry though, the damage is minimal.
    
    My party consisted of the usual Jr., Ziggy, and chaos.  Equip or set HP
    Strong, All Guard, Speed Up 25% on all three of them.  Then equip whatever
    other two skills you want.  You can have five skills equipped and still have
    great armor equipped as well.  Three skill slots and two accessories.
    
    Attack with Jr.'s Angelic Requiem or Storm Waltz, Ziggy's Meteor Shot (when
    there is a Jaldabaoth in the way) and his Cyber Kick when it's just Sophie
    Peithos, and chaos' Angel Blow (when there is a Jaldabaoth in the way) and
    his Heaven's Wrath when it's just Sophie Peithos.  Revive and heal as
    neccessary.  The battle should be over in no time.

    Strategy:
            This boss is extremely simple.  If you know the trick.  You will
    receive several hints before this battle and even during this battle to help
    you discover how to kill Tiamat.  Unfortunately, if you kill Tiamat with Shion
    or Jr. the first time, you may not understand it.
    
    the trick to this boss is that Shion and Jr. MUST deal the finishing blow to
    Tiamat in order for him to die.  Once each.
    
    For example, if you finish Tiamat with choas you will get a message something
    along the lines of "Shion/Jr. must face their own fears".  Helpful right?
    This tells you that they must kill Tiamat.  HOWEVER, if you kill Tiamat with,
    lets say, Jr. first, you get this message "Jr.'s consciousness destroyed".
    What the heck does that tell you.  NOTHING, beyond the fact that now everytime
    you attack Tiamat with Jr. he won't counter-attack with his Gravity move.
    This also doens't tell you that Jr.'s consciousness was destroyed BECAUSE Jr.
    himself dealed the finishing blow...just that it was destroyed.  So depending
    on who you kill Tiamat with, can make this battle difficult because you may
    never get a helpful message unless you kill him with your third character.
    
    Now, enough ranting and on with the show.
    
    When Shion gets a turn, Tiamat will ususually "react" to Shion's consciousness
    and pull of his "Ruined Earth E" counter-attack that damages all party.  This
    is his worst attack, so if you can survive it, he's a piece of cake.  I'd
    suggest trying to deal the finishing blow with Shion first, and then he will
    revive himself with 1500-1650 HP.  So then you will need to bring him down
    again and deal the finishing blow with Jr. and the battle's over.
    
    When Jr. gets a turn he will usually counter with a Gravity attack that takes
    off 1/4 of one characters HP.  No big deal.  He also has a normal attack that
    doesn't do squat.
    
    So, here is the strategy:
    
    Just use Shion cast "Medica All" as needed to try and keep your characters
    at close to full HP. Make sure you have the Angel Ring equipped on her to
    halve her EP usage.  If she doesn't need to heal, her Spell Ray does a good
    amount of damage to Tiamat.
    
    Guard with Jr. to get his AP up to 6 and to lessen the damage received from
    Tiamat's attacks.  When Jr.'s AP is up to 6, use the following button
    combinations to activate the double buster.
    
    Triangle, Circle, Circle
            OR
    Square, Circle, Circle
    
    This will enable Jr. to do 2 Tech attacks per turn using 6AP.  Keep doing that
    to take massive damage from Tiamat.
    
    Use chaos to just attack and heal when neccessary.
    
    If Tiamat casts confuse on one of your characters:
    Use Shion's "Refresh" ether to cure it.
    Use chaos's "Purifying Storm" ether to cure it.
    Use items with Jr. to cure it.
    
    
    Just use this strategy and he should go down in no time.  Just remember to
    deal the finishing blow to him once with Shion, and after he revives, once
    with Jr. and it's Kobiashi Maru.

    Strategy:
            Use lightning attacks if you have them available.  This guy shouldn't
    be difficult for you.  If he is, you will be in trouble a little later.  I
    would suggest leveling up or allocated unused points, equipping chars with
    different equipment, etc., if you have trouble with this guy.  By this point
    all three of your main characters should have Revert and Medica All.  They
    should also be able to extract level 4 and possibly level 5 skills from
    accessories.  Make sure you have Angel Ring equipped or extracted for at
    least one character.  I would recommend extracting Speed up 25% from the
    speed shoes for all three chars and set it as one of their skills.  Along with
    HP Strong, W Special, All Guard, or Angel Ring.  If your characters have
    maxed out EATK stats, as they should if you have been following my guide,
    Medica All should heal everyone for around 500 HP each.  Revert should revive
    them with around 400-500 HP as well.

    Strategy:
            Guard with Ziggy every other round to build up for "Tech" attacks and
    lessen the damage he receives.  Use MOMO's ether skills to heal Ziggy when he
    needs it.  Don't attack when the enemy has it's shield out!  This is very
    important as it will waste your combo.  Take out the 2 Mercurio's first (after
    1 is gone the Zolfo will start attacking)  Zolfo can hit MOMO as well so heal
    her if she needs it.  Use an Ether Pack S for 20 EP restoration when MOMO needs
    it.  You may also want to use some of the Med Kit S items as well for healing.
    After the 2 Merc's are gone, combo the Zolfo until it's out of commission.
    I takes about 3 of Ziggy's Lightning combos to knock out a Merc.

    Strategy:
            This is just a token battle.  You might want to use this battle to
    prepare for the next stage.  For example, you might want to boost your
    characters speed, get into an A.G.W.S., etc... before killing him.  It
    should only take one hit to kill this guy so make sure you steal from him
    if you want the items, before you kill him.  After he dies he will change
    into one of two things.  If you have two characters in A.G.W.S.'s at this
    point, he will get into his Meld Gareth A.G.W.S.  If not, he will get
    into his Din Gareth A.G.W.S.

    Strategy:
            Don't use A.G.W.S.'s for this battle.  Din Gareth is extremely simple.
    All of his attacks only damage one person so just revive that person when they
    go down.  His 71 Series Rail Cannon does about 700-1200 damage per person.
    Use physical attacks to inflict huge amounts of damage.  Ziggurat's
    Cyber Kick, Jr.'s Storm Waltz, and chaos' Heaven's Wrath all work extremely
    well against him.  Don't bother healing your people.  Just let them die and
    revive them immediately.  That way you can even take advantage of HP Strong if
    you have it and not waste turns healing a character when he will probably still
    die after one hit.  Simple.

    Strategy:
    
    Your characters should be around level 24 for a safe bet on winning.
    
    Recommended Party:  Jr.   - Must use him
    
                        Shion - For healing
    
                        Your third character can be anybody but I recommend
                        either chaos or Ziggy.
    
    
    Recommended Equipment/Skills:
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Equipment       Skill        Description
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Brave Soul      HP Strong    Increases PHYSICAL damage as HP goes down
                                   (Similar to the Power Crisis in Xenogears)
                                   You can obtain this item by redeeming coins in
                                   the Casino.
    
      Golden Dice                  Damage fluctuates by HP
                                   You can obtain this item by redeeming coins in
                                   the Casino.
    
      Angel Ring      N/A          Halves EP usage. You will find this item.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Make sure you extract and set the Brave Soul/Golden Dice/Angel Ring skill on
    all three characters.  This will help more than you can imagine.  If you
    cannot extract the skills regardless of how many Skill Points you have, it's
    because yo need to raise your Skill Level up.  To do that, you must extract
    tons of skills from all kinds of accessories.  The more things you extract,
    the more your Skill Level will go up.
    
    I also recommend having Ether spells that increase your SPEED during
    battles as they are extremely helpful.  Ziggy has one he can use on
    himself that increases his speed 50%.
    
    Try to boost Shion's Ether Attack as much as possible with Skill Points and
    her healing spells will work much better.
    
    To defeat Great Joe, use Ether spells to increase your speed.  Use Shion
    to heal and revive anytime it is needed.
    
    With Jr. at low HP he can deal out over 1000 damage per round.
    
    When Great Joe does his 50% chance heal/damage reversal spell, from that
    point on, either healing potions/spells, or attacks will damage him.
    
    For example, if he chooses Reverse, then healing spells will damage him
    and attacks will heal him.  If he chooses Normal, then it is the way it
    usually is.  Healing would heal and damage would damage.
    
    Just keep healing/reviving with Shion, and blasting the other two
    characters.  He should go down easily using this strategy.
    
    
    When you defeat Great Joe you get the following:
    
    Swimsuit      - +1 Armor, 25% increase to Tech Points received after battles.
                    Your character will also appear in his/her swimsuit.
                    Anyone who was at the beach scene earlier can equip it.
    
    Magnum Joe    - A summon for Jr.
    
    Soul Rhapsody - Tech for Jr.  Absorbs G Types.

    not enough to kill you with one hit.  So just leave one of your characters
    outside their A.G.W.S. to heal and throw out frame repairs as needed.  Try
    to use someone with decent attack power as well because they can really take
    Meld Gareth down quickly.  Ziggurat is a good choice if you have boosted his
    EATK stat.  Ziggurat takes a lot less damage but can still heal himself.
    Having a pair of speed shoes or the skill set on Ziggurat can be helpful, as
    well as his 50% speed up.  Combine the two for a super quick Ziggurat that get
    two to three turns per round and does killer damage with HP Strong or Golden
    Dice equipped. Just keep attacking and he'll go down.

    Name: Mintia
      HP: 7777
    Weak: None
     EXP: 22000
      TP: 160
      EP: 240
      SP: 200
    Rare: Craft Apron
    Item: Penguin Rod
    Type: Gnosis
    Cash: 12000
    
    Strategy:
    
    Recommended Party:  MOMO - Must use her
    
                        Jr.  - For FAR attacks
    
                        Your third character can be anybody but I recommend
                        either chaos or Ziggy.
    
    
    Recommended Equipment/Skills:
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Equipment       Skill        Description
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Shield Armor    All Guard    Prevents ALL status effects/abnormalities
    
      Brave Soul      HP Strong    Increases PHYSICAL damage as HP goes down
    
      Angel Ring      N/A          Halves EP usage
    
    Having men in this battle does make it slightly more difficult, but I say,
    eh, too bad, I like my guys.  Every once in a whil shee will shout out
    "I hate men!" when she is attacked by one and throw out some damage, but she
    should still be pretty easy.
    
    Make sure you STEAL the two items from here before you kill her!
    
    Having All Guard is helpful in this battle, but Brave Soul/HP Strong is the
    real bread winner here.  Mintia will call on her "pet" frequently and use
    and attack the takes one character down to 1 HP.  Oh yeah, damage
    extraordinaire with HP Strong set.  Jr. will be doing over 1000 damage each
    time you use his Storm Waltz.
    
    Now, I know leaving your characters at low health is scary, but don't worry,
    most of her attacks are one person at a time so you can quickly revive them.
    She does have an all party attack that can wipe you out so it's a good idea
    to keep MOMO and your third character at 300-400 health.  Leave Jr. at 1 HP.
    
    Remember, if your character has 900 HP and the "pet" takes it, it adds that
    amount back to Mintia, so you keep healing her.  Don't do this, keep them at
    low health.  You may even have to use items because my people heal revive
    with around 500 HP since I maxed out their Ether Attack Stat.
    
    Something I think is very important in this battle and many to come is the
    ability to heal/revive each other, instead of relying on one person with
    these abilities.  So I recommend transferring Shion's healing spells to all
    your characters.  The spells you will need the most are Revive & Medica All.
    
    Also, transferring Jr.'s steal spell can also be helpful when looting tough
    bosses.
    
    Just keep this strategy going and she will go down easily.
    
    When you defeat Mintia you get Dark Scepter - A tech attack for MOMO.
    
    After the battle Mintia mentions something about fighting her again, next
    time with her #1 pet. Hmmm...
