==============================[ Introduction ]================================

    This guide was created in order to help people find at least one of every
     item in the game, and obtain everything that can be permanently lost.

    This guide was designed to do the following things:

    - Guide people towards the end of the game, in a fashion that allows them
      to pick up every single item that cannot be retrieved at a later date.

    - To enlighten the player about every item that has limited use and/or
      limited availability, and ensure that the player can achieve a
      "perfect file" with whatever attention to detail such a thing might
      require.
      
    I have created an Excel spreadsheet that contains 'checklists' as it 
     were, that allow you to keep track of which Ethers and Skills each 
     character has learned, as well as an inventory checklist to make sure 
     you get your hands on every last item in the game.

    The spreadsheet also allows the player to track the changes they make to 
     their character's statistics. These spreadsheets project those changes
     over the course of 99 levels and display what your character's maximum
     statistics will be at level 99. These sheets go hand-in-hand with my
     Statistics Guide.

    Feel free to e-mail me for this Spreadsheet:

    One note before beginning: Any PS3 units that use the emulation software
     instead of the PS2's actual Emotion Engine cannot play Xenosaga: Episode
     I: Der Wille zur Macht properly. Upon entering the Robot Academy in the
     Kukai Foundation, your game will freeze. This prevents you from getting
     quite a few items. The rest of the game, however, is fine to play.

    I hope for your sake, you have a PS2 and/or the PS2 memory card adaptor.

    Now, onto the Missable Items Guide.

==========================[ Keep Your Eyes Peeled ]===========================
---------------------------------[ 05.KYP ]-----------------------------------

    I'm making sure that you get everything there is to get in this game.

    Scout's honour.

    First thing's first, though.

    I will not point out the locations of stupid items like Med Kits and
     stuff that is always purchaseable. If it's a one-time-only chest, or
     one-time-only destructible cannister, then yeah, I'll point it out, but
     I'm not going to point out the location of every destructible object in
     the game.

    Although this is not an e-mail FAQ, or a Decoder FAQ, I have chosen to
     include all of them, simply because it will be too frustrating and/or
     annoying to pass back and forth between several guides to see which
     ones you've obtained, and which ones you've missed.

    Everything will be listed chronologically, with 'event' triggers between
     each item to signify how far you are in the area. The game is very
     touchy with its windows of opportunity.

    A certain boss towards the end of the game holds the Soul and Spirit, the
     male and female counterparts of some very interesting end-game armour.

    While the third Soul and Spirit are missable, it should be noted that you
     never need more than 2 of each. The only males that can equip the Soul
     are Jr. and chaos, and the only females that can equip the Spirit are
     Shion and MOMO. It is entirely up to you if you want to be bothered
     attempting it. Frankly, the only inconvenience in attempting this is
     learning and transferring Psycho Pocket.

    In order to steal 3 of each, we need Shion equipped with the White Ring,
     and MOMO in the party (although, you can sub out Shion for chaos or Jr.)

    MOMO and the second person (who has 8 Agility without equipment) will
     need to have the Psycho Pocket Ether transferred to them. You will also
     need MOMO's Dark Scepter (so Mintia will have to be defeated before you
     take out Gigas).

    Tech Upgrade Z, and Ether Upgrade Z come in limited quantities. Do not
     use them if you wish to have a complete list.

    As a rule of thumb, I will suggest a couple of things:

    Analyze everything you see, the first time you see it, including bosses
     and their minions.

    Steal from every boss and unique-looking monster you come across.

    In a previous update, I incorrectly mentioned it was impossible to back
     out of the "Open Card" screen in Xenocard, meaning that as soon as you
     went in there with Promo Cards, they were getting opened: this is not
     the case. If you press Start on that screen, you can exit without
     opening any particular pack.

    On that note, let's begin.




===============================[ Items List ]=================================
---------------------------------[ 06.ILs ]-----------------------------------

  If you're ever in a panic about having missed something, check here to make
   sure you can get another copy of it later. If that is the case, you can
   rest easy knowing it's not a huge deal that you missed it.

    The following is a list of every item in the game that cannot be missed,
     and where to get it. Another list will follow of the elusive items, and
     their locations.

    Take note that when I list an item as a 'drop', it may also be a rare 
     drop. By using the various Steal Ethers in the game ("Queen's Kiss" and
     "Psycho Pocket"), you will attempt to steal from the group of items that
     an enemy will drop. These are also "steal items" by default.

    Items with an [I] across from them can be obtained infinitely.
    Items with an [X] across from them are only obtainable at the places
     described beside them.

    If an item can be obtained infinitely, I will not list places where the
     item is found elsewhere. I will also not list items if they are dropped
     by an enemy who has a limited appearance, unless it is the only enemy
     that drops the item.

============================[ KOS-MOS Simulator ]=============================
---------------------------------[ 07.KSM ]-----------------------------------

  Before defeating the Drone GX, consider spending some time in here to sync
   statistics with Shion and KOS-MOS. Also, get Shion's Queen's Kiss Ether
   (by following the bottom Ether tree), so that you can steal a couple of
   useful items from the final boss of the Woglinde.

  While neither of the following items on the list are permanently missable,
  they fall under my list of important mentionables. Well, the Battle
  Passport not so much, but what the heck.

  SEGMENT ADDRESS # 10
  - The Segment Door is in the simulator. Head down the ladder after
    defeating the Drone SPX.

  EVENT - Drone GX is defeated, and Shion exits the simulator.

  PASSPORT
  - After leaving the simulator, head right back in. Go back to the room
    where you just defeated the Drone GX, and pick up the Battle Passport
    from the red box.

    a long hallway. To the left of the Naval Officer looking at the map on
    the wall, there is a small lounge area with blue couches. Walk in here
    to receive an E-mail from Miyuki regarding the development of a new 
    weapon for KOS-MOS. Accept Miyuki's proposition immediately.

  E-MAIL--------------------------------[9 received + 2 responses][11 total]
  - To the right of Sgt. SWaine is an E-mail from Namco about one of their
    games.

  SHOP INVENTORY
  - The shop is found north of Sgt. Swaine, in the AGWS Hangar.
  - This shop will disappear permanently after the Woglinde: Invasion
    sequence, along with the Uniform item. Buy as many as you need now, or
    they're gone for good.

  EVENT - Shion relays the KOS-MOS test data to the captain of the Woglinde.

  E-MAIL-------------------------------[10 received + 2 responses][12 total]

  E-MAIL-------------------------------[11 received + 3 responses][14 total]
  - AS soon as you return to the main floor from the Bridge VIA the
    elevator, head East, and turn north when the corridor bends. Stay to
    the left of the first Holographic planter you run past. You will get
    an E-mail that requests 500g for investment purposes. Accept, and 
    choose whichever company you desire. Investing in Vector will result
    in 5 Ether Pack S and gaining the F-BSHOT earlier.

  SEGMENT ADDRESS # 16
  - To the north of the previous e-mail and just west around the bend,
    there is another Segment Address to be found, diagonally from the room

  DECODER # 18
  - This is found in the room where the two lovers were previously making 
    out. There is a Gnosis trapped behind glass. You can attempt to break
    the glass and dodge the Gnosis, but it's tricky. Wait until the Gnosis
    materialize, and come back here after the Cyclops boss battle.

  DECODER # 7
  - As you progress through the area, you will encounter Sgt. Swaine again.
    He will give you this Decoder.

  ITEM - SEGMENT ADDRESS # 7
  - Just inside the door, you'll find a chest.
  - Your reward is the Robot Part - Right Arm

  EVENT - The party defeats the Cyclops boss. The Gnosis materialize.

  ITEM - SEGMENT ADDRESS # 18
  - After defeating the Cyclops boss, you will be near Shion's room. Just
    continue east, and head north when you see 3 Gremlins (tadpole lookin'
    things) gnawing on a downed A.G.W.S. unit.
  - The  Coat-Lightning accessory is your reward.

  ANALYSIS
  - The Sky Fish present with the Minotaur are not the same models found
    towards the later parts of the game. If you do not analyze them now,
    you can never get their analysis data for the U.M.N. Database.

  ITEMS
  - Although the Skill Upgrade S and Z items that are held by Minotaur are
     not permanently missable, they are very helpful in the following
     sections.


================================[ Pleroma ]===================================
---------------------------------[ 09.Plm ]-----------------------------------

  DECODER # 11
  - In the middle of the room that has 5 guards patrolling (1 in each corner
    of the room, around a lantern, and 1 more in the middle of the room),
    there is a destructible box. Blow that up and open the chest for
    Decoder 11.

  SEGMENT ADDRESS # 4
  - In the same room where you find Decoder # 11, head northwest. In the
    corner is a destructible wall-unit covering a door. Behind the door
    is a chest with the Snake Hunter, but also Segment Address # 4.

  DECODER # 4
  - Notice the AGWS Ziggy wants to avoid fighting? That's because the sneaky
    bugger has Decoder # 4 on him. The fight is a little rough for Ziggy and
    MOMO, and a lot tougher for Ziggy alone. I'd come back with the EVS
    plate when you have more party members to sop up the damage and Exp.

  ITEM - SEGMENT ADDRESS # 4
  - Now that you have both the Decoder and the Segment Address location,
    go get that Thief Ring.

  NOTE: Remember, if you don't pick up the Decoder and Segment Address # 4,
        it isn't gone for good. I'm just listing the Segment Addresses
        because the accessories are almost always useful.

  ITEM
  - Although it is not missable, don't forget to pick up the Ether Upgrade
     Z from Pleroma's church (accessible from the sewers).

  NOTE: If you are stat-maxing, forget about defeating Margulis, he's
        wasted Experience points. If not, take note that Margulis drops
        the Red Ring or Purple Ring (rare), so you can instantly make use
        of the Thief Ring (+10% rare drop rate). Good luck beating him,
        he's one hell of a challenge. If you need to beat him (for whatever
        reason), equip the Coat-Lightning item that you found in Segment
        Address # 18. It'll help immensely.




==================================[ Elsa ]====================================

  Before getting too far into this area, make sure you have 1000g handy.
   Use the UMN plug-in to get some money in old areas. Just make sure you
   actually do it. NOW!

  Furthermore, play the Driller game (and reset when you lose). Skip
   Mission 1, and go right to Mission 2 for the Yamato Belt. Also, play
   free mode and reset whenever you don't end up with a Drill Key.
   All 5 Drill Key Doors have useful items behind them. Pick them up.

============================[ U-TIC Battleship]===============================
---------------------------------[ 12.UTB ]-----------------------------------

  ITEM
  - A single Tech Upgrade Z item is hiding out in the Debris here. It is not
     missable, but it is rare. Pick it up and do not use it.

  SEGMENT ADDRESS # 11
  - Once you get the keycard to open door #4 (the large red double-doors to
    the east of where Jr. initially entered), continue east to the far end
    of the hallway. Inside the room at the northeastern corner of this area
    is the 11th Segment Address. You should already have the Decoder from
    the Pleroma segment. You'll know you're in the right room when you're
    automatically attacked by an U-Tic soldier.

  ITEM - SEGMENT ADDRESS # 11
  - Enjoy your Coat-Ice item. It will help in the next dungeon.

  ITEM
  - Find the U-TIC card in the very southern end of the Battleship area. Go
    as far south as you can go, past an AGWS hangar, past two soldiers, 
    and before the first planter, to the room on the eastern wall. The U-Tic
    card is in a chest inside a destructible container.

  - Now head north, and before Door 5, head right. Past the cubby-hole that
    previously had 2 soldiers in it, but now contains a robot crab, and to
    the door on the eastern wall. You will be required to press "O" on the
    card reader. Enter the room and obtain Decoder 16.

  - Please note that if you do not get the U-Tic card, enter the room and
    get Decoder 16 on your first run through here, the Decoder and the
    contents of Segment Address 16 are permanently lost.

  DECODER # 16
  - Thanks to the glitch, this Decoder is missable. Make sure you get this
    on your first pass by using the instructions above.

  NOTE
  - There you have it, the U-Tic door is the glitched door of legend, and it
    can never bother you again. Sigh a breath of relief, because you no
    longer have to worry about a glitch messing up your game.

  - Thanks to Crazy4Metroid for confirming it was the U-Tic door and not the
    Segment Address that was glitched.

  EVENT - Jr. proceeds through the northern-most door in the area, and
          engages the Ambix security system.

  ITEM - SEGMENT ADDRESS # 16
  - A single Stim DX is now yours. This is a part of your collection, so
    don't use it.

  EVENT - Hammer walks out of the Elsa with your group and emphasises the
          importance of finding Commander Cherenkov.

  ITEM
  - Enter the Dock Colony Clinic and talk to the mute little girl. Then, go
    to the back of the clinic and speak with the doctor. This begins a
    fairly long quest chain for a Tech Upgrade Z.

  ITEM & E-MAIL
  - Talk to the little boy in the "Talk To Me" shop, and get him to tell you
    about a pink doll that used to be in the Dock Colony. This begins a

  MISSABLE ITEMS FROM SHOPS
   
  Now here is where the game gets weird. At almost every point that something
   significant happens in the story, every shop's inventory gets packed full
   with all sorts of goodies. In order to keep their inventory flowing, the
   old stuff has got to go...So, keep on your toes, or you're going to miss
   something.

  There are going to be a lot of times that items disappear, so you have to
   be careful while reading this guide. Up until now, we've been lucky to
   be able to take our sweet time while purchasing, but we don't get that
   comfort anymore if we want to have a little bit of everything.

  Before you leave the Dock Colony, make sure to purchase the A.G.W.S.
   tune-ups from the "Talk To Me" shop. They will play an integral role in
   the upcoming boss fight.

  EVENT - Shion talks to Matthews and asks him to depart.




=============================[ Cathedral Ship ]===============================
---------------------------------[ 14.CSh ]-----------------------------------

  ITEM
  - Svarozic has a Tech Upgrade Z hiding in his rare item slot. Make sure
     you steal that before you defeat him. While you're at it, nab his
     Tech Upgrade S item as well.
  - Grab a valuable Tuned Circuit from the chest he was guarding.

  ITEM
  - Svarozic's brother, Perun, appears only once during your first run
    through the Cathedral Ship. He cannot be skipped, but if he doesn't
    drop the Ether Upgrade Z, you miss having one more of them in the
    inventory. Ether upgrade Z cannot be acquired in the end-stages of
    the game from enemies. Make sure you steal his Ether Upgrade S. We'll
    put it to work a while later.

  ITEM
  - After defeating the Hydra plants, grab the Flower Seed in the hall
    behind it. The item itself is not missable, however, Luty progresses
    her side-quest in stages, based on major events in the game. If you run
    out of major events to push forward her progress, the quest cannot end.
    It is best to get this out of the way as soon as possible. Much like the
    Hazardous Area Map, if you want to keep this in your inventory, and
    choose to opt out of finishing it for the Tech Upgrade Z (found
    elsewhere), just don't talk to Luty again. I believe she'll take it, no
    matter where you are in the game, regardless of whether or not the quest
    can still be completed.

  DECODER # 15
  - The Hydra rewards you with tis Decoder.

  SEGMENT ADDRESS # 13
  - After you defeat Perun and the Hydra Plants, you are forced to wedge your
    way through a corridor containing a wandering Cerberus. As you can see
    below, there are a ton of destructible containers and a couple of tough-
    looking enemies. Proceed around the ledge, and exit south-west. Hop on
    the elevator, and enter that same room from the bottom-level. Once you
    clear out the Unicorns (or if you're good enough at avoiding them, and
    have plenty of EP to keep using "Goodbye" when they catch you), check
    out this Segment Address on the right side of the northern wall.

  ITEM
  - Defeat Stribog now, and steal his items. They're not missable, but they
     can be put to good use. Besides, he's guarding the Decoder # 9 item, and
     the door isn't far off; save yourself a trip and get it now.

  DECODER # 9
  - You will have access to the chest containing this item once you defeat
     Stribog.

  SEGMENT ADDRESS # 9
  - This is found on the third floor, on the right-hand side of the research
    lab. You know you're in the right place, because you're up on the third
    floor, blowing up the locks on the elevator.

  ITEM - SEGMENT ADDRESS # 9
  - Your reward for opening Segment Address # 9 is the Robot Part - Left Arm

  ANALYSIS
  - Analyze the Oudogogues during the encounter with the Gargoyle boss. This
    enemy can never be encountered again, period.

  ITEM
  - Make sure that you steal from the Gargoyle boss and do not stop until
    the Commander's Crest is successfully stolen. This is your only
    opportunity to get it. I like to try and steal the Silver Crown just in
    case, even though it drops after the fight. I would suggest using the
    newly acquired "Magic Caster" tech with MOMO, and follow that up by
    using "Queen's Kiss" with Shion. You should end up with both items on
    your first try. Queen's Kiss *MAY* fail, but it shouldn't take more than
    another try. Magic Caster can not fail, so that Commander's Crest is
    yours.

  - This is your dividend from Vector. It's a plug-in. Make sure it's
    downloaded.

  After viewing the beginning cutscenes on the Durandal, do not do anything
   to activate more cutscenes until you're 100% sure you have 6000g. If you
   don't, head STRAIGHT to the dock using the Bullet-Train, and enter the
   Elsa by heading east. Start selling all the Scrap Iron in your
   inventory and all the low-level healing stuff (Med Kit, Ether Pack, stuff
   without an X or DX or MAX in front of it, basically) until you do. If
   you're still short, you can get the Casino Passport (mentioned below),
   or EVS dive and earn the cash the old-fashioned way.

  PASSPORT
  - Head to the very northern section of the residential area, and turn
    right, into the games room. Open the chest for the Casino Passport.
    Buy 1000 tokens, and play Poker. Once you've won about 5,000 tokens
    on Hi-Lo, switch to slots. Once you get the hang of playing the slot
    machines, you can turn those 5,000 tokens into 100,000 tokens in no
    time flat. Sell all your Med Kits, Ether P\acks, Revives and Cure-Alls.
    Now purchase 99 Recovery Sets for 9900 Tokens, and sell aforementioned
    items for about 11,000g profit. Now keep doing that. For a long time.
    Earn as much money as you can possibly make before you can't stand it
    anymore.

    step forward to receive an E-mail from the hacker's apprentice. Respond

   new gear. Unfortunately, you cannot manually enter the Elsa to check out
   the ship's inventory. You're basically stuck using it for transportation.

  ITEM
  - Head to the Dock Colony and bring Luty the Flower Seeds you picked up on
    the Cathedral Ship. This will allow you more time to advance Luty's
    progress.

  DECODER # 5
  - Swing on over to the Hangar using the tram system, and open the armory
    door. The Decoder is in the chest.

  ITEM
  - Ziggy gets some missile upgrades for the MSP89SX that had a limited
    shelf-life on the Dock Colony before heading into the Cathedral Ship.
  - Your rewards are the MSS540 Missiles.

  GREAT JOE
  - While this dude isn't missable, he offers some really nice rewards up
    front. It's a shame to defeat him early on because he'll most likely 
    provide your frontline characters with 2 level ups if you defeat him
    before level 20 (which hurts your stat maxing). On the other hand, he
    drops the Swimsuit item (100% of the time). The Swimsuit item grants
    25% more Tech Points to anyone wearing it, or using its extracted
    skill. The best part is that it stacks with the item, so one lucky
    person in your party receives 50% more Tech Points. This is a good way
    to get your party members stat-synced. Just give the person with the
    least amount of exp to the next level the Swimsuit, and right before
    they level-up, boost all of their stats.

    Although you lose 2 levels of Stat Gains (+12 to all stats,
    theoretically), the amount of T.Pts you'll be gaining between levels
    is well worth the trade-off.

    The second option is to get another Swimsuit from the Driller Mini-
    Game once you've completed the Encephalon: Miltia stage of the game,
    and pick up the second Swimsuit during the Kukai Invasion. By giving
    all three party members +25% T.Pts skill and 2 members the Swimsuits,
    you'll more than make up for the boat-load of Experience Joe dishes
    out.

    It's entirely up to you, but I find that defeating him sooner, rather
    than later, provides a much more gratifying victory. Although, keeping
    an end-game save-file with Joe intact can come in handy if you ever
    want to beat the snot out of a semi-tough enemy with your uber-stats.

  - Either way, your reward for beating Great Joe is a Swimsuit item.

  This is about all we can do here, so head over to the Dock, and get on the
   hull of the Elsa.

  NOTE
  - Before heading into KOS-MOS' room, purchase 3 Guard Cleaner, 3 Guard
    Recovery, and upgrade all of your A.G.W.S. This is your last chance to
    visit a shop for a while. Purchase 6 HG75VX Handguns, too. They're the
    cheapest upgrade and they pack quite a bit of power for the deal you
    get. Since they're W-Act weapons, you'll want two on each A.G.W.S.

  - Also make sure you update your armour. The game is about to ramp-up the
    difficulty. Don't just buy 3 of everything, buy 6. You use all of your
    characters throughout the area, so you don't want to leave any of your
    group members underequipped. Make sure you have one Green Ring as well.
    You should, since MOMO came with one equipped, and we agreed not to sell
    anything that looked remotely valuable....right?




===========================[ Encephalon: Miltia ]=============================
---------------------------------[ 18.EMt ]-----------------------------------

  EVENT - Shion starts her scenario in the Park.

  SEGMENT ADDRESS # 5
  - Once you reach the shattered highway area, you'll notice a manhole
    towards the end, instead of going down it, go past it, and blow up the
    block near the Realian woman. Descend into the sewers, and run up the 
    stairs. Upon resurfacing, you'll be in the starting area again, but on
    a lower level.

    Defeat the purple Troll enemy, and open the door with Decoder # 5.

  ITEM - SEGMENT ADDRESS # 5
  - You are rewarded with the Double Buster. One of the most valuable
    accessories in the game.

  Return to the sewers, and back to the highway. Go down the first manhole
   you discovered. While down here, make sure to kill the Sky Fish patroller
   in front of an important-looking dashboard. Press the button to expose a
   door. Even though Shion can't access it now, Jr. can in a few minutes.

  EVENT - Jr.'s scenario continues.

  SEGMENT ADDRESS # 15
  - Once you reach the save-point inside the subway, head to the upper-most
    turnstile, and head through it. Before entering the door, turn left, and
    blow up the debris in the way. Then, shoot the glass window. Now go back,
    enter the door, and run over to where the glass was just shattered. Now
    you can see that there's a Segment Address hiding inside.

  ITEM - SEGMENT ADDRESS # 15
  - You are rewarded with the Angel Ring...Again, one of the most valuable
    accessories in the game.

  DECODER # 12
  - Go through the door that Shion and chaos opened. The decoder is in the
    chest.

  EVENT - Shion's scenario continues.

  ITEM
  - In order to get the S. Carrot Juice item, you'll have to work your way
    through the forest area, and blow up the wooden bridge in the same area
    as Bunnie's house. Cross that bridge (near the Kobold), and enter the
    cave. On the other side of the cave is a carrot patch with 4 carrots.
    Pick up all 4. Now, go play the chase-game with Bunnie. It will take 
    some time and practise to know when to run and beat him to the door of
    his house.

  - TAKE NOTE, however, the mechanics of the S. Carrot Juice before beating
    Bunnie at his own game. They will only spawn in groups of 4, if you have
    exactly 0 in your inventory. Once you defeat Bunnie, you can never play
    the game again. This means that once you beat Bunnie, however many
    S.Carrot Juice you have is how many you're stuck with when you beat him.
    The loophole is that if you have 0, you can go pick up 4 more, but you
    can never use them. If you're really picky, use this method. If you're
    happy having 1 ~ 3 in your inventory, then just beat him when you can.
    At this point, I don't know if the 4 S. Carrot Juice items will respawn
    if you defeat him with 0 in your inventory, leave the Encephalon, then
    re-enter the area later. It's safest to do it in one shot if you can.
    It's also good to point out that if you don't want to do this on your
    first run through the Encephalon (while the enemies provide a threat to
    your characters), you can just wait and come back later VIA EVS.

  DECODER # 3
  - The decoder is your prize for defeating Bunnie at his racing game.

  ITEM
  - When fighting the Tiamat boss, make sure you steal the Revenge Power
    accessory from him. Once it's gone, it's gone for good.

  - This is your response from the Snake Charmer. If you chose Durandal, you
    get yourself into some deep trouble, but a good reward is on its way.

  You can return to the Elsa to check out the shops. They mostly have the
   same inventory as they did before you stepped into Miltia.

  +------------------------------------------------------------------------+

  Return to the Dry Cleaner's Store.

  ITEM - SEGMENT ADDRESS # 3
  - Open up the door and grab the Robot Part - Right Leg.

  ETHER SUMMON
  - Return to the Professor's shop in the basement of the Robot Academy. You
    can now give him the Robot Legs in exchange for another Ether: Dominion
    Tank.

  So far, the only change I've seen in these shops during this time is that
   the Dock Colony shop stopped carring the SHB67AG weapon for A.G.W.S.
   units. But the Elsa and Robot Academy A.G.W.S. shops still sell it.

  Event - Shion talks to Allen at the Ironman bar.

  NOTE - Before progressing into the next section, take note that you will
         not have a chance to EVS dive during the Kukai Invasion, and once
         you enter Section 26 & 27, you're stuck in there. Keep a save from
         before entering Sector 26 & 27, just so you can farm T.Pts, E.Pts 
         or S.Pts from enemies that dole out less experience points than the
         ones in Kukai. You may need it.

  ITEM
  - Don't forget to check up on Luty to see the progress on the Ariadne
    Flower. Unless of course you're keeping the Seed as part of your
    collection. In which case, ignore this bullet point. If you checked
    during the previous two mentions of this, You should receive another
    Tech Upgrade Z.

  PLEASE, READ THE NEXT SECTION THOROUGHLY BEFORE PROCEEDING!!!




=======================[ Kukai Foundation: Invasion ]=========================
---------------------------------[ 20.KFI ]-----------------------------------

  I'll start here by mentioning that all of the shops that were listed in the
   Durandal: Again section are exactly the same. What I find ironic is that
   you have access to all of them, even though there's an emergency situation,
   but when the characters were playing on the beach, nobody wanted us going
   anywhere. Weird.

  Regardless, for the sake of not boring you to tears with another 50 lines
   shop inventory, I'll just leave those shop lists in the last section.

  Also, take note that the "Our Treasure" Shop is closed, but there is an
   NPC that sells items with the same inventory list at the entrance to
   sector 26 & 27.

  Again, once you begin this section of gameplay, you are STUCK HERE, and
   all of the previous shops are temporarily unavailable, except for the
   Mayor's version of the Our Treasure Inn shop.

  Take note that you will want to do all of your analysis and item collecting
   before rescuing all of the civilians. Once you do, everything despawns.

  SAVE YOUR GAME - Save your game on several different slots as you progress
                   through here. There are so many missables, it is
                   ridiculously easy to screw up a perfect-save in here.

  ETHER CHECK - If you have not learned and transferred Shion's Boost I
                ability, use some of your EP Stock (except for the Upgrade
                Z items) to give her enough EP to learn it and transfer it
                to at LEAST 1 other party member (preferrably MOMO, since
                she'll be mandatory in the Gigas fight). I like to use
                chaos, since almost everything in the game is weak to his
                attacks.

	      - Also, make sure Jr.'s Psycho Pocket is on MOMO and whomever
                else you'll be using to steal the Soul/Spirit armour combo
                with. As stated before, I like to use Shion because she'll
                have more Skills learned/Skill Points, or chaos because he
                is POWERFUL against the Gigas.

  DECODER # 13
  - On the roof of the Ironman bar, there is a chest containing this Decoder.

	  SEGMENT ADDRESS # 1
  - On the roof of the Ironman bar, the Segment Address is on a ledge, behind
    some destructible debris.

  ITEM - SEGMENT ADDRESS # 1
  - The Robot Head is yours!

  ANALYSIS
  - The first time you enter Sector 27 (the western half of Sector 26 & 27),
    there will be a very strange looking monster flying around near the
    Bakery. The Wyrm enemy will disappear once you leave this screen,
    regardless of whether you fought it or not. If you don't analyze it now,
    it's gone forever. Also, be careful when fighting it, as it will attempt
    to escape. If it escapes, it is also gone forever, and you don't even
    get a database entry.

  ANALYSIS
  - The Gel Fish are one-time only enemies in here. They do respawn, but
    once this section of gameplay is over, they disappear for good.

  ITEMS
  - Before taking on Gigas, make sure you defeat Mintia (yes, this will
    be pretty difficult), and obtain MOMO's Dark Scepter (automatically
    granted when Mintia is defeated). During the fight, make sure you use
    Psycho Pocket to get the Penguin Rod and the Craft Apron from Mintia.

  TECH ATTACK
  - MOMO's Dark Scepter is obtained by defeating Mintia. Since we're at a
    point that will require us to use it to find a rare item, it's time to
    take her on. I will provide a boss strategy for your benefit, since I
    consider this mandatory to a perfect file.

  To Find Mintia, turn the crank beside the entrance to the Ironman bar. This
   will lower a path to Mintia. Make MOMO your on-screen character, and enter
   the Our Treasure Inn. Go upstairs, and climb the ladder to reach the roof.
   Once you fall off the roof onto the scaffolding, hop onto the overhang over
   the entrance to Ironman, and start running Northeast (yeah, push up towards
   the wall, and to the right to ensure you don't fall off. Once you enter the
   room, the fight begins. Obviously, save your game beforehand.

  There is a fairly easy way to beat Mintia. It involves having a male in your
   party...namely, Jr. It helps to have the Bravesoul.

  Put Jr. in the bottom-right (front row) position. Put MOMO directly behind
   him. Put Shion to the left of MOMO.

  You have two dedicated casters and one dedicated damage dealer.

  Give Jr. the Commander's Crest, the Bravesoul, the White Ring, and whatever
   three skills suits him. Perhaps PATK + 2.

  What will happen is that Jr. will dish out a ton of damage, and Mintia will
   constantly use Bibo's life-draining attack. Use MOMO to revive Jr., and have
   Shion standing by to heal herself and MOMO, and to use the occasional
   EP-restoring items.

  Locking Mintia in this cycle will ensure that she dies fairly easily.

  There are other, all-female versions of strategies that I emplore you to
   try (she's an extremely satisfying boss to best without a cheap strategy
   like the one I listed above).


  ITEMS
  - When fighting Gigas, make sure MOMO and Shion have the Psycho Pocket
    Ethers. Make sure Shion has the White Ring equipped, and reset your game
    if you do not start with both females getting a turn before Gigas does.
    Use Psycho Pocket with both Shion and MOMO to get the Spirit and Soul
    armour. When Gigas splits, steal from each of the two new Gigases. When
    you're done, you should have 3 Souls and 3 Spirits. Now, defeat each Gigas
    on a Point Bonus slot, using MOMO's Dark Scepter. You should end the fight
    with 2 Diamonds on top of the aforementioned Swagger.

  - This may require a few resets to get it without any problems.

  NOTE - To make the Gigas fight easier, equip all 3 A.G.W.S. with
         Guard Cleaner and Guard Recovery items, and use them to tear
         through each Gigas' health. When they're very close to dying,
         have MOMO step out of her A.G.W.S. and alternate between guarding
         and using Dark Scepter.

       - If you can, take out the melee-based Gigas first. If you reduce the
         caster Gigas's HP to low amounts, he'll start casting instant-death
         spells on the party. With a partner boosting and melee-attacking
         you, the battle can become quite messy, quite quickly. Just have all
         three members disembark once the caster Gigas is alone and low on
         HP. You can have them alternating heal and revive spells until MOMO
         manages to bring the boss down.

       - If you have Misty with Jr. and he is in the party, have him cast it
         on the caster Gigas to disable him completely from the fight. If Jr.
         isn't in the party, but has enough E.Pts to transfer it, have him
         pass it over to Shion or chaos (or whoever MOMO'S partner in crime
         is).

  EVENT - Shion returns to the Durandal, goes back to Kukai, and returns to
          the Durandal again (bleh). MOMO goes missing. Cutscenes and stuff.

  EVENT - Shion enters Tower 1.

  DECODER # 14
  - This Decoder is found on the fifth floor of tower one. You can reach that
    floor by destroying 12 boxes on the elevator.

  EVENT - Shion enters Tower 2.

  DECODER # 2
  - Defeat the Athra 26 Series boss on the middle-floor of Tower 2.

  SEGMENT ADDRESS # 12
  - Right behind the Athra 26 Series enemy is another container covering up
    this segment address.

  ITEM - SEGMENT ADDRESS # 12
  - Crack open the door and MOMO's W-Hammer Rod is your reward.

  ITEM
  - Defeat the Rianon SE, but not before stealing the Boost Pack and Shield
    Armor.

  EVENT - Shion and co. defeat Rianon SE, and exit the second tower.

  DECODER # 17
  - In tower 3, at the very center of all of the balconies and ladders, is a
    sealed room. Get in there, by maneuvering around the Gnosis, and getting
    to the upper balcony on the west side, then dropping down the hole in the
    center balcony. You'll end up in the very center, and there will be a
    chest inside the balcony with the glass walls. The Decoder is in that
    chest.

  NOTE - To save you from checking another FAQ for this puzzle, just shoot
         the columns down so this many remains:
       - Red = 2
       - Blue = 3
       - Green = 5

  EVENT - Shion and Co. enter the core of the Song of Nephilim.


  NOTE - After the Simeon fight, I would suggest running back up to the save
         point, healing, and saving.

  ITEM
  - If you don't steal the Master's Pendant from Ein Rugel before s/he
    transforms into Doppelwogel, it's gone for good.

  ITEM
  - Make sure you steal the Gemini Clock and Samurai Heart from Doppelwogel.
    These items are also permanently gone after the fight.

  EVENT - Ein Rugel and Doppelwogel are defeated.

  ETHER SUMMON
  - Before heading into Proto Merkabah, visit the Professor at the Robot
    Academy once more. He'll reward you for finding all of the Robot peices
    by giving you the Erde Kaiser summon spell. It costs 12 Wt to equip,
    costs 60 EP to cast, and _ALWAYS_ deals 9999 damage to all.

  NOTE - At any point during this dungeon, you are free to return to the Elsa,
         to check their shops, or to get Matthews to take you to the Dock
         Colony or the Kukai Foundation/Durandal.

  SEGMENT ADDRESS # 17
  - On the 43rd floor, the Segment Address is in the research laboratory.

  ITEM - SEGMENT ADDRESS # 17
  - Jr.'s BLOOD9 weapon is inside of this door. It's his ultimate weapon,
    so equip it and start blasting everything away. Couple this with the
    Bravesoul and toss a Hemlock on Jr. Watch him decimate anything -melee
    distance or ranged- in one round.

  ITEM
  - Proto Dora's Rare Item, the Fast Circuit 50, is the only of it's kind in
    the entire game. If you don't get it now, it's lost.

  DECODER # 6
  - This decoder is dropped by Proto Dora.

  SEGMENT ADDRES # 6
  - This Segment address is in the room after defeating Proto Dora, where
    there are 3 demons patrolling, and a sunken section in the center of
    the room.

  ITEM - SEGMENT ADDRESS # 6
  - The Trauma Plate accessory is now yours. Wave goodbye to those pesky
    Critical Hits. This is probably one of the best accessories to have
    extracted and equipped during the final boss.

  ITEM
  - PM Card Q. THis is the Proto Dora card for the Xenocard minigame. There
    is some curiosity about this item. Some say it unlocks right after you
    beat Proto Dora. This is not true. It unlocks AFTER you've completed the
    elevator segment in which you fight several mandatory Armaros, Azazel,
    and Baraqijal enemies. Once you return to the ship, the card will be
    waiting for you in the Casino Prize Exchange.

  THE LAST SAVE-FILE BEFORE THE BOSS!!!
  - There is no true 'point of no return' in this game anymore, because you
    can still leave Proto Merkabah. Just do yourself a favour. Make 2 or 3
    copies of this save file. Perhaps save your game onboard the Elsa, so
    you have more options.

  - JUST. DON'T. SAVE. OVER. THIS. WITH. THE. CLEAR-DATA.

  - Once you beat the final boss, and view the ending, you will be asked to
    save your game for bonuses available in Xenosaga Episode II. Don't save
    over top of your perfect-file or you won't be able to access it at all.

  FINAL BOSSES
  - I'm not going to give out any strategies for this. Why? Because you're
    on your own now. You have everything you need, and you're at a point that
    gives you the freedom to do what you want. Having trouble? Spend that
    money on some more weapons and armour for your characters or A.G.W.S.,
    or spend some time levelling up or stat-syncing. Enjoy the game.

  CONGRATULATIONS
  - You now have every missable item in your inventory. You may not have
    99 of everything else, or 9999 Tech, Ether and Skill points, or all of
    your Techs at level 50, or +200 to all of your stats, and so on and so
    forth. But now you know you can safely stat-sync at any time without
    worrying that you missed something.

  - Do what you want with your save-file. It's yours to enjoy, and
    what makes it 'perfect' is completely up to you. Keep the PM Cards in
    your inventory, or unwrap them and play the hell out of Xenocard; it
    doesn't matter, it's all yours. Have fun.
