    Hey there folks! It's your old buddy Adder, back for another FAQ! Another FAQ

    |IV.Useful Terminology:|
    ------------------------
    
    In the realm of Super Robot Taisen, there are a large number of terms and names
    that will probably leave a newbie to the series scratching his head. Because we
    were all that newbie at one point, this section is here to help the unitiated
    muddle through what all of this giant robobabble is all about.
    
    +Mech+
    
    A mech is essentially a universal term for robot, giant or otherwise. Mainly
    because it incorporates the least amount of keystrokes for a name that handily
    encompasses all of the units in the game, I'll be using this throughout the
    guide quite extensively.
    
    +Real Robot+
    
    For the purposes of this guide, a real robot is a mech that can equip extra
    armaments. This is by no means the definitive definition of an RR- indeed, many
    debates rage on about what qualifies as Real and what qualifies as Super to
    this day. Other characteristics of a Real Robot include smaller size, notable
    evasivness, and being part of a mass production line. A good example of the
    quintessential Real Robot is the Gespenst Mk II.
    
    And no, a battleship is NOT a Real Robot just because it can equip repair and
    supply modules, you doofus.
    
    +Super Robot+
    
    A Super Robot is, in essence, a unique, non-mass produced mech with specs and
    weapons that defy the current laws of physics to varying degrees. Again, for
    the sake of a clear cut definition, a super robot in relation to this guide is
    a mech that can't equip extra weapons. A good super robot example would be the
    Grungust. Mm... Grungust.
    
    +Pilots+
    
    A pilot and a mech are two very different things. Pilots and mechs, for the
    most part, can be switched around and mixed and matched. They're not a single
    unit. Pilot stats play an important role in which mech they go in. I'll cover
    this in greater detail in the pilot chapter. Also, each pilot has a different
    set of unique skills and spirit Commands. Pilots gain exp, mechs are upgraded 
    via cash. However, it should be noted that some pilots cannot switch mechs and
    some mechs can only be piloted by one pilot.
    
    +Spirit Commands/Seishins+
    
    Anyway, these are extremely important. Each pilot has six spirit commands,
    though only a few are available at lower levels. Getting anywhere in the game
    without these guys is nigh impossible. They bestow, for a turn or a battle
    various beneficial effects. For example, Strike raises your hit rate to 100%
    for one turn, and Alert guarentees that you dodge one attack.
    
    -----------
    |V.Basics:|
    -----------
    
    This is the section that new players should definitely read thoroughly. It will
    explain how the game works, what things do, etc.
    
    These are all of the commands you will use in a mission. This menu is accessed
    by selecting an allied mech and pressing O.
    
    +COMMAND LIST+
    
    -Move-
    
    As you would expect, you use this command to move your mech around the map.
    Each mech has a set movement range, which is indicated by the glowing spaces
    surrounding the selected unit. Use your cursur to choose which glowing space
    you would like to move to, and press O.
    
    -Attack-
    
    Again, this is pretty self explanatory. When you select this, the weapon select
    menu comes up. Here, you can select from available weapons to use (unavailable
    armaments will be in red). Once you select your weapon, you're then brought
    back to the map, where you can see your chosen weapon's range. Move your cursor
    on top of the enemy you wish to attack (in your range) and hit O. There will be
    a confirmation screen, displaying your Hit percentage (the chance you have to
    hit the enemy, out of 100. 100% means you'll hit, no matter what. 50% means you
    have an equal chance to hit or miss, and 0% means you won't hit period.), your
    chosen weapon, and your enemy's chance to hit you. You can also toggle whether
    or not you watch the battle animation. Hit select start to go through with your
    action.
    
    
    Some attacks, labeled with ALL, will attack both members of a twin squad. Moves
    labeled W will attack adjacent enemies at the same time.
    
    -Spirit-
    
    This option opens up the spirit menu, where all available spells are displayed,
    along with current Spirit Points (SP).Move your cursor over the available
    spells to view what they do. The cost in SP is displayed to the right. Quite
    naturally, if you don't have the required SP, you can't cast that spell. Some
    spells can be used on allies. If that's the case, you can use your cursor to
    select which one.
    
    -Change-
    
    This option is only available to units with different forms, such as the R-1.
    When used, the mech changes into its alternate form. It's that simple.
    
    -Air/Water/Ground-
    
    If the unit you've selected has flight capabilities, these options will appear.
    By selecting it, you can ascend into the sky, or descend to the ground or body
    of water. However, note that some flying units, like battleships, can't descend
    to the ground. They can, however, enter bodies of water. Also, the Kurogane can
    actually go UNDERground with the Subterranean option. It can't attack, but it
    can't be targeted, either. Fun stuff.
    
    -Combine-
    
    This is only available when certain units are next to eachother. When used, the
    individual mechs become one, new machine. It can act that turn ONLY if the
    combo mech's primary pilot hasn't acted yet.
    
    -Repair/Supply-
    
    This option is only available if the unit in question is equipped with a repair
    or supply module. Repair restores an adjacent unit's  HP by a fixed amount that
    gradually increases by level (?). Supply completely refils the ammo and EN of
    an adjacent unit, though without the Supply Plus skill, it can't be used post
    movement. Also, the recipient of a resupply loses 10 will, so be careful with 
    it.
    
    -Standby-
    
    This simply confirms your move and ends the unit's action.
    
    -Status-
    
    Not a command in the true sense of the word. However, it pops up in the menu
    all the same. It takes you to a detailed breakdown of the mech and the pilot.
    
    +MAP MENU+
    
    By hitting O on an unoccupied space, a new menu is brought up.
    
    -End Phase-
    
    Selecting this causes your turn to end and your enemy's turn to begin. The game
    will give you a second confirmation screen, and also notify you if units have
    not been moved yet.
    
    -Units-
    
    This will bring up a list of all units deployed in the mission. Note that the
    list uses mech names, not pilot names, though you can check the pilot by taking
    a peek at the middle right box on top. Current HP is also displayed, and mech
    names in red have already moved. By selecting a mech name and hitting A, you
    will exit out of the menu and your cursor will be on the selected mech. Pretty
    handy if you've split up your forces on a larger map.
    
    -Mission-
    
    Selecting this will tell you what you need to do to complete the mission, and
    how to lose it.
    
    -Battle Mastery-
    
    Selecting this will tell you how to achieve the battle mastery point for the
    episode. Battle mastery points increase the game's difficulty, but for each one
    you snag, all deployed pilots get +5 PP.
    
    -Search-
    
    This option lets you search for Spirit commands, Pilot skills, and mech skills.
    Names in red indicate that the pilot or mech with this skill has already moved.
    
    -System-
    
    This lets you turn the grid on or off, toggle mech and pilot Backround Music,
    and switch configuration from righthanded to lefthanded.
    
    -Save-
    
    This lets you save. Duh.
    
    +STATISTICS+
    
    Statistics determine how much damage you do, how much damage you take, etc.
    Mech and pilot statistics are very different things- so I'll cover each one in
    detail in the appropriate section.
    
    +CHECKING TERRAIN/UNITS+
    
    To briefly gloss over a unit and its most basic current statistics, select it
    with the cursor and press X. The current HP and EN of the mech will be shown,
    along with the Pilot's current Will, SP, number of units beaten, level, exp
    needed to level up, current PP, and number of offensive and defensive supports
    remaining for that turn.
    
    To check terrain, do the same. It will display the name of the terrain, any
    defensive bonuses it gives, any evade bonuses it gives, and if it has any EN or
    HP restoring qualities.
    
    
    --------------------------------
    |VI:Skills, and Spirit Commands|
    --------------------------------
    In this section, I'll detail pilot statistics, pilot skills, and spirit 
    commands.
    
    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
    
    +PILOT STATISTICS+
    
    For those of you who wonder what all of those little numbers mean, this part of
    the guide should prove quite helpful. Unfortunately, I don't have any advanced
    formulas, so I can't tell you how much damage a character with 200 Ranged and
    the G-Impact Cannon will do in any exact terms.
    
    -Fixed Statistics-
    
    These stats don't change until you level up or increase them manually via the
    intermission menu.
    
    Melee: This stat influences how much damage you do with a weapon of the subtype
    Melee.
    
    Range: This stat influences how much damage you do with a weapon of the subtype
    Range.
    
    Hit: This stat influences your hit rate against enemies.
    
    Evade: This stat influences your evasion rate against enemies.
    
    Defense: This stat influences how much damage you take from enemy attacks.
    
    Maneuver: This stat influences how often you get a critical hit (x1.5 normal
    damage) or an enemy gets a critical hit on you.
    
    -Fluctuating Statistics-
    
    These stats change as the battle progresses.
    
    Will: This is a fairly complicated stat. Most notably, it enables the use of
    high end weapons with Will requirements. If a pilot has certain skills, such as
    Attacker, then Will can enhance unit performance as well. Will starts at 100 in
    most cases (105 if the character has beaten over 50 enemies.) and increases at
    rates depending on the character. All characters get +3/5 Will when they beat
    an enemy, however. For a detailed list of will gains and losses, check the
    pilot analysis section. Will cannot increase further once it reaches 150. Some
    spirits and skills increase Will without battling, such as the Drive spirit and
    morale skill. The amount of will you have is proportionate to how much damage
    you deal and receive- generally, having high will makes you studlier. Skills
    like Guard and Attacker further boost the normal bonuses.
    
    Experience: Also known as Exp, units gain this whenever they successfully hit
    the enemy. How much is gained is determined by the levels of the pilots that
    are involved. For example, you will not gain a lot of exp if your level 25 Rai
    hits a level 19 Barrelion. Generally, the amount of exp earned from just simply
    smacking something is fairly small. To gain substantial amounts of exp, the
    enemy unit needs to be destroyed. Some spirit commands can increase the amount 
    of exp gained.
    
    Number of enemies beaten: A fairly simple stat. It increases by one whenever an
    enemy is downed. Its main use is that once you get 50 or more kills, you get a
    shiny little star, 105 will at the mission's outset, and the Pilot's Ace Bonus.
    An Ace bonus is a handy little thing that can grant a wide variety of helpful
    boosters.
    
    -Expendable statistics-
    
    Spirit Points: Spirt points go down as you use spirit commands. Pretty simple.
    The max amount of SP a pilot has goes up as you level up. To restore spent SP,
    you can use an SP drink, purchase the SP Regenerate skill (DO THIS. AT THE
    EARLIEST OPPROTUNITY. >:EE), or have an Ally use the Hope spirit command. It's
    also worth noting that some plot events fully restore a character's SP.
    
    Pilot Points: These don't have any use during a mission, but they're used in
    the intermission menu to purchase skills or boost pilot stats. You gain PP by
    defeating enemy units.
    
    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
    
    +PILOT SKILLS+
    
    In this section, I'll detail every pilot skill (at least, I think so. Drop me a
    line if I missed one, ja?)
    
    
    |Prevail|
    
    Cost: 20 PP, 5 PP to upgrade. Max level: 9.
    
    This skill increases Hit, Evade, Crit, and Armor when HP decreases.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: A flawed concept to begin with, really. By the time the
    bonuses you get start kicking in, you're halfway dead anyway and it's difficult
    to take advantage of them. Annoyingly, one of the most common skills in the
    game.
    
    |Offensive Support|
    
    Cost: 50 PP, 10 PP to upgrade. Max level: 4.
    
    This skill enables a pilot to add their own attack to an adjacent allie's when
    they engage in combat.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Nigh imperative to finish off some of those pesky "lawl
    I retreat when my HP goes below XXX HP" bosses to snag their items/battle
    mastery point. That aside, helpful all around, especially for strong attackers.
    However, support attacks don't deal as much damage as the stand alone attack
    would deal. But it's still an attack that doesn't constitute as that unit's
    move.
    
    |Defensive Support|
    
    Cost: 50 PP, 10 PP to upgrade. Max level: 4.
    
    This skill enables a pilot to take an enemy attack that was meant for an
    adjacent ally. Note that when the damage is dealt, the supporting pilot is for
    all intents and purposes is in defend mode.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Not really a skill I'd reccomend. Sure, it can save
    your ass every now and again, but most pilots that benefit from it already have
    it. See: Tasuku and battleship pilots.
    
    |Counter|
    
    Cost: 20 PP, 5 PP to upgrade. Max level: 9.
    
    This skill allows your character to sometimes attack first regardless of who
    initiated the battle. The chance of this happening goes up with the level.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: A nice skill to have, IMO, though nothing vital. It
    works quite well with powerhouse units with lower evade, like Sanger and Tasuku
    (Sanger actually comes with the skill. w00t?) who can then smash before being
    smashed themselves.
    
    |In-Fight|
    
    Cost: 20 PP, 5 PP to upgrade. Max level: 9.
    
    This skill increases damage done by melee attacks, and it also increases
    movement.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: A very sexy skill, if only for the movement bonus. The
    pilot of the Giganscudo Duro should be making passionate love to this baby.
    Any unit that focuses primarily on Melee combat should at least consider this
    skill.
    
    |Gunfight|
    
    Cost: 20 PP, 5 PP to upgrade. Max Level: 9.
    
    This skill increases damage done by melee attacks, and it also increases
    weapon range.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Not quite as sexy as in-fight, IMO, but still very nice
    if placed on the right pilot. Excellen and Rai are both good candidates for
    Gunfight, seeing as they both have natural hit and away, along with high range
    stats.
    
    |SP Up|
    
    Cost: 30 PP, 5 PP to upgrade. Max level: 9.
    
    This skill raises the maximum amount of SP a pilot has.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Eh. Anything that increases SP is good, but SP Regen
    and Focus are better, IMO. Good on support pilots that don't have anything else
    to spend PP on.
    
    
    |Command|
    
    Cost: 30 PP, 10 PP to upgrade. Max level: 4
    
    This skill gives an evasion/hit rate bonus to nearby units (I believe the area
    to be about 2 squares away.)
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Considering how skillful enemy grunts in this game, I'd
    definitely advocate giving a unit or two this skill.
    
    
    |SP Regenerate|
    
    Cost: 80 PP
    
    This skill allows the pilot to regain 10 SP each turn.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE, PURCHASE THIS SKILL. THIS SHOULD
    BE ON EVERY PC YOU PLAN ON USING. IT'S WORTH THE 80 PP. HECK, IT'S WORTH 200
    PP. LARGE CAPITAL LETTERS CAPTURE YOUR ATTENTION.
    
    |Focus|
    
    Cost: 80 PP
    
    This skill reduces the expenditure of SP to 80%. IE, 10 SP Alert becomes 8 SP
    alert.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Another top tier skill- not as imperative as SP regen,
    but still an extremely valuable asset.
    
    
    |Hit and Away|
    
    Cost: 70 PP
    
    This skill enables movement after attacking.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: An absolutely excellent skill for range oriented pilots
    like Lune. Funnily (and conveniently) enough, most of the pilots that truly
    benefit from this skill naturally have it anyway. Still, for a few pilots, it's
    worth the fairly steep cost.
    
    |Attacker|
    
    Cost: 80 PP
    
    This skill increases damage dealt x1.2 when Will is 130 or over.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Expensive for a reason, my friends. Anyone can benefit
    from this. Except maybe Radha or something. Very useful for boss trouncing. If
    you don't mind splurging for another costly skill, then by all means, get this
    one. In fact, most attacking units should get this.
    
    |Revenge|
    
    Cost: 40 PP
    
    This skill increases damage dealt by counter attacks by x1.2.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Another sexy one. Being fairly cheap and having no will
    requirement is very fun, and considering that most of your attacks are probably
    going to be counterattacks anyway, definitely something worth considering. It
    loses its usefulness in boss battles, though.
    
    |Predict|
    
    Cost: 90 PP
    
    This skill increases hit and evasion rates when will is at 130 or more.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: It might sound good, but to be honest, the bonuses you
    get don't justify the monstrous cost.
    
    
    |EN Save|
    
    Cost: 80 PP
    
    This skill discounts EN costs for weapons by 20%.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Much more useful than ammo save, IMO. Almost all mechs
    have attacks that rely on EN- and it's a total godsend for Dygenguard and the
    SRX (IE, Sanger and Ryusei.). If anything, you should probably give it to at
    least one of the two.
    
    
    |Ammo save|
    
    Cost: 80 PP
    
    This skill increases total ammunition by x1.5.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Despite having a somewhat misleading title, Ammo Save
    is a pretty good skill, especially for pilots with ammo dependent mechs like
    the Alteisen. It works very well on Leona, because of her Fury spell. She can
    actually USE various impairment weapons like EN drain and Stun Shot against the
    foes they're actually useful against- bosses. Yay for rendering the final boss
    inert for a turn!
    
    |Learning|
    
    Cost: 100 PP
    
    This skill allows the second member of a twin squad to gain the same PP and EXP
    as the lead member.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: If you use twin squads a lot, it might be worth the
    investment. If not... it's monstrously expensive.
    
    |Resolve|
    
    Cost: 50 PP
    
    This skill adds 5 will at the start of a battle.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Meh. Having 50 kills kinda makes this obsolete, y'know?
    Still, for will intensive mechs, like Cybuster, it's certainly an asset.
    
    |Morale|
    
    Cost: 60 PP
    
    This skill increases a pilot's will by 2 every turn, starting at the second
    turn.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: In theory, this sounds great. However, most missions
    simply don't last long enough to get more than about 8 will points out of this,
    if even that. I'm not even touching on missions with time limits. Even so, more
    will is always a good thing, so if you have PP to blow and you already have
    what you want, go for it.
    
    |Will +(Evade)|
    
    Cost: 60 PP
    
    This skill adds 1 will point when you evade an enemy attack.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: This can be quite helpful on evasive will intensive
    mechs (*pokes Cybuster*). Otherwise, you shouldn't really need it. Though, if
    you plan on using Shine in any offensive capacity, you might wanna get her 
    this.
    
    
    |Will +(Hit)|
    
    Cost: 65 PP
    
    This skill adds 1 will point when you hit an enemy.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: I only reccomend this is you find a certain mech always
    seems to be low on will, and even then, I'd probably reccomend evade over this
    one.
    
    |Will +(Dmg)|
    
    Cost: 60 PP
    
    This skill adds 2 will points when you're hit by an enemy attack.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Fun times for Gigan and Grungy, and on a few other big,
    tanky mechs. Dygenguard, maybe? Of course, fairly useless on mechs with evade.
    A fairly hit or miss skill.
    
    |Combo Attack|
    
    Cost: 75 PP
    
    This skill allows support attacks to deal 100% of the damage they normally do.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Another skill that's immensely helpful in taking down
    retreating bosses. Naturally, only snag this skill if you already have the
    offensive support skill necessary to make this do anything.
    
    |Focused attack|
    
    Cost 75 PP
    
    This skill reduces the damage penalty of the second member of a twin squad's
    attack power by 20%.
    
    Adder's reccomend: Another skill that's only really helpful if you twin up a
    lot. If so, it's very handy. If not...
    
    |Guard|
    
    Cost: 85 PP
    
    This skill increases defense at 130 will or more.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Ehh... I can only see this working on one or two pilots
    at best, and even then, they're probably better off with Attacker or Prevail.
    
    |Will Limit Break|
    
    Cost: 100 PP
    
    This skill sets the morale limit at 170.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: To be honest, it's too expensive to be something I'd
    really reccomend- but if you have a ton of PP and not much to use it on, this
    can be a very potent skill.
    
    |Mechanic|
    
    Cost: 65 PP
    
    This skill increases the HP restored by the Repair Module by x1.5.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Ehh... I never found myself using Repair too much. I've
    found that the normal amount is generally enough, though if you have difficulty
    keeping your units alive, you might want to invest in this.
    
    |Resupply|
    
    Cost: 70 PP
    
    This skill allows the Resupply Module to be used postmovement.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Despite the fact that it sounds pretty situational, at
    least one pilot on your squad should have this skill- said pilot should also
    have the Resupply Module. In later, boss heavy stages, EN becomes a fairly
    precious commoddity- the more you can resupply, the better.
    
    |EXP UP|
    
    Cost: 100 PP
    
    This skill increases the amount of EXP gained by 1.2.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Another expensive skill- it goes best on sub-pilots and
    support pilots, but they're the ones that have PP shortages. Best left for New
    Game Plus runs.
    
    -Natural Skills-
    
    These skills cannot be learned. They can only be natural skills.
    
    |Genius|
    
    Cost: N/A
    
    This skill increases the pilot's hit, evade, and crit.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Free stat bonuses? I'll take it. This skill is most
    likely one of the primary reason the Branstein siblings own so much.
    
    |Lucky|
    
    Cost: N/A
    
    This skill may at random intervals cause your enemy to miss and your mech to
    perform a critical attack, regardless of stats. It will be indicated by a small
    "Lucky!" flashing on the screen.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Hey, you don't have to spend anything for it, right?
    Most likely, it won't prove to be anything more than a nice bonus every now and
    then, but, hey, again, it's free. But why the hell doesn't Kyosuke get this?
    
    |Fortune|
    
    Cost: N/A
    
    This skill increases the money earned from shooting the enemy down by x1.2.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: This is more like it. More money is ALWAYS good...
    though I still think Kyosuke should have the other half of the Lucky skills, as
    well. >>;
    
    |Telekinesis|
    
    Cost: N/A, Max Level of 9
    
    This skill raises hit and evade.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Free bonuses? Y tank u. il taek tr33. A surprisingly
    large number of pilots learn this, too- a good skill all around, ya?
    
    |Prophesy|
    
    Cost: N/A
    
    This skill raises evade at 130 or more will.
    
    Adder's reccomendation: Hey hey! It's like predict, but it actually gives
    noticable bonuses!

    +SPIRIT COMMANDS+
    
    Here, I'll detail what the individual spirit Commands do, and what I think of
    their overall usefulness.
    
    -Valor-
    
    Doubles damage on next attack.
    
    Adder's opinion: One of the best in the game. It's generally expensive, but
    good luck taking down some of the game's tougher bosses without it.
    
    -Mercy-
    
    After this spell is used, if the affected pilot would shoot down a unit, the
    unit is left with 10 HP.
    
    Adder's opinion: There are only a few situations where this is useful- mainly
    in missions where you have to drastically weaken an enemy but not defeat it. In
    those missions, it's a godsend. In most others... well, if you want to give an
    easy kill to one of your weaker units, it's okay.
    
    -Snipe-
    
    Increases weapon range by 2 squares, except for MAP attacks and attacks that
    only reach 1 square to begin with.
    
    Adder's opinion: Not many pilots have it, but those who do generally make good
    use of it. Sniping stuff is fun, ja?
    
    -Alert-
    
    Evades any enemy attack for one battle.
    
    Adder's opinion: Probably one of the spells you'll use most in the game, it's
    usefulness is immeasurable in boss fights. It's also rather cheap.
    
    -Invincible-
    
    Next connecting enemy attack does 10 damage.
    
    Adder's opinion: An excellent spell that's essentially Alert+, because it
    remains active until you're hit- so you could conceivably have this cast the
    whole battle as insurance for unlucky hits.
    
    -Gain-
    
    Doubles Exp earned in the next battle.
    
    Adder's opinion: Not much to say here- great for battleship pilots because of
    their overall lack of use and if there's no reason to conserve SP, anyone who
    has it can benefit from it.
    
    -Cheer-
    
    Doubles an ally's exp in his/her next battle.
    
    Adder's opinion: Much more useful than gain, even if it is more expensive. Yay
    for being able to pick and choose.
    
    -Luck-
    
    Doubles money earned in next battle.
    
    Adder's opinion: A great spell to use when finishing off a boss or an enemy
    battleship. Mmm... dough.
    
    -Bless-
    
    Doubles an ally's money earned in next battle.
    
    Adder's opinion: One of the best support spells. Nuff said. Gotta love more
    cash from anywhere on the map.
    
    -Focus-
    
    Raises user's hit/evade rate by 30% for a turn.
    
    Adder's opinion: Another top tier spell. You'll be using this tons, especially
    when throwing units into large groups of enemies.
    
    -Strike-
    
    Raises user's hit rate to 100% for 1 turn.
    
    Adder's opinion: Sexyness, especially for heavy hitters that have trouble with
    accuracy. The fact that it lasts the entire turn is great.
    
    -Attune-
    
    Raises an ally's hit rate to 100% for 1 turn.
    
    Adder's opinion: Very useful for boss fights when you need to save SP, or just
    SP saving in general. The characters that get this are SP tanks- like Aya. Fun
    stuff.
    
    -Sense-
    
    Casts strike and Alert at the same time.
    
    Adder's opinion: Quite a bit better in OG1, if you ask me. Here, it just seems
    really expensive. Still, a pilot that has this probably doesn't have the other
    spells, so you're kinda stuck with it.
    
    -Guard-
    
    Reduces damage to done to 1/4 for 1 turn.
    
    Adder's opinion: A tank's best friend. Used on Giganscudo or a Grungust (think
    of type 2 with its TK barrier), you become practically invincible for a turn.
    Still, it's a wee bit expensive, so use with care.
    
    -Accel-
    
    Increases movement by three. If you don't move, the effect stays until you do.
    
    Adder's opinion: It's a real shame that more pilots didn't get this gem. In
    missions with turn limits, this is your best friend- not to mention it's VERY
    cheap.
    
    -Zeal-
    
    Gives one more action that turn. IE, you Zeal, attack, then you can move/attack
    a different target.
    
    Adder's opinion: Expensive? Very. Limited in use? Very. Used in conjuction with
    EN save, a Hi generator, Ryusei, the R-Gun powered and SRX? Well worth the
    effort. Three HTB cannons in one turn is insane- and think what would happen if
    someone used Enable on the R-Gun. Basically, save it for this situation.
    
    -Vigor-
    
    Regains 30% of total HP.
    
    Adder's opinion: Dissapointingly few units have this spell- it's actually kinda
    good. For a relatively cheap cost, you can heal a good portion of your HP.
    Nonetheless, Trust is still better in most cases.
    
    -Guts-
    
    Regain all HP.
    
    Adder's opinion: Blech. Extremely expensive for its effect, only one or two
    units actually have it, etc. 
    
    
    -Spirit-
    
    Increases Will by 10.
    
    Adder's opinion: Depending on how expensive it is, this can be either a helpful
    boost every now and again or very overpriced. It can be a useful answer to the
    resupply will drain, if SP Regen is present.
    
    -Drive-
    
    Increases Will by 30.
    
    Adder's opinion: Best used at the beginning of the mission- that way, SP Regen
    will have a chance to recover the gargantuan cost. Other than that... it's far
    too costly to be used effectively elsewhere.
    
    -Trust-
    
    Increases an ally's HP by 2000.
    
    Adder's opinion: The quintessential healing spell. Extremely useful throughout
    the game (most units don't exceed around 6000 HP).
    
    -Faith-
    
    Restores an ally's HP fully.
    
    Adder's opinion: Somewhat costly, but the payoff is amazing if used correctly.
    If your battleship's been gangbanged, this can be a lifesaver. Likewise with a
    Grungy or Gigan. For others, it's probably best to use Trust, but it's damn
    powerful if used in an intelligent manner.
    
    -Renew-
    
    Restore's an ally's ammo and EN fully.
    
    Adder's opinion: This spell is so awesome that it warrants Aya's use even if
    you aren't fusing for the SRX. Sure, it's costly, but it's much quicker and
    efficient than using the resupply module. No nasty will drain, either. Best
    used in later missions during breaks between big bosses in conjunction with SP
    Regen.
    
    -Enable-
    
    Allows an ally to act again.
    
    Adder's opinion: Very nice, especially for boss fights where getting every
    possible attack in is crucial. It's best saved for such situations, because of
    its rather large cost.
    
    -Scan-
    
    Let's you see an enemy's specs without battling it first.
    
    Adder's opinion: This is actually useful for checking tough enemy range and
    morale. It's limited in utility, but it can be good in certain situations.
    
    -Rouse-
    
    Increase one ally's will by 10.
    
    Adder's opinion: Indespensible in the final chapters, but nerfed heavily. It
    only works on one ally and it's not any cheaper.
    
    -Daunt-
    
    Decrease one enemy's will by 10.
    
    Adder's opinion: Since only Excellen gets this, its utility is limited. Best
    used for big bosses and in conjunction with a lot of SP drinks.
    
    -Assail-
    
    Enables all weapons after moving, except for certain MAP attacks.
    
    Adder's opinion: For the most part, it depends on the mech and the weapons the
    mech is equipped with if this is useful or not. For example, Alteisen benefits
    from this greatly. Overall, a handy spell.
    
    -Fury-
    
    Disables all enemy defensive abilities and defensive support.
    
    Adder's opinion: Probably more useful than it sounds, considering all of the
    annoying bioroids that support eachother and the fact that most bosses where
    status weapons would be useful are nullified by defensive abilites. Fury is fun
    stuff, especially when used with Stun Shot.
    
    -Love-
    
    Activates Accel, Strike, Spirit, Alert, Valor, Gain, and Luck.
    
    Adder's opinion: Whoah. That does a lot of stuff for one spell. IMO, it's the
    best of the lot (at least offensively). Besides, Irm can get this for 45 SP. 
    Yeah, you heard me right. <3 Irm. No pun intended.
    
    TWIN SPIRIT COMMANDS
    
    These commands can only be used when two units are twinned up. They take SP
    from both pilots.
    
    Bonds: Restores 50% HP to all allied units.
    
    Adder's opinion: Whoah. That's a lot of healing... unfortunately, it's unlikely
    that you'll ever find yourself in a position with so many badly wounded units.
    Save for emergencies.
    
    Great Rouse: All allies get +5 Morale
    
    Adder's opinion: Expensive as hell, but it a couple of missions, it's well most
    certainly worth the cost.
    
    Training: Current Twin squad gains double PP after the next attack.
    
    Adder's opinion: Definitely useful, but expensive. Save it for twins that are
    about to KO a boss.
    
    Prediction: Enemy evasion rates are lowered
    
    Adder's opinion: Probably not something you'll be using often- but it can come
    in handy against Bartolls.
    
    Confusion: Enemy hit rates are cut in half
    
    Adder's opinion: Definitely useful in long battles with a lot of enemies, or
    during boss fights. It might seem a bit expensive, but it can save your butt if
    used correctly.
    
    Soul: Next attack does 2.5x damage.
    
    Adder's opinion: It's generally better to stay untwinned up for boss fights,
    but if you like seeing really high numbers or you need to shoot something down
    that retreats, definitely worth a try.
    
    Continuous Attack: If the next attack destroys the target, the twin squad will
    be able to move again.
    
    Adder's opinion: Generally obsoleted once you get Zeal, but it can get you out
    of a tight spot early on.
    
    Synchronize: For one turn, the pilot that uses this will set their stats to the
    highest value of the twin. For example, if one pilot has 160 Melee and another
    has 190, the pilot that uses Synchronize will get 190 melee. Note that this
    will not cause any stats to decrease.
    
    Adder's opinion: Pair Russel with Ratsel. Use. Have fun! :D
    
    Fighting Spirit: For one turn, all attacks are always a critical hit.
    
    Adder's opinion: This can actually be pretty good to ensure a bit of extra umpf
    is put into your attacks- especially helpful when one unit is facing down a
    horde of High HP enemies.
    
    Hope: Restores 50 SP to one pilot.
    
    Adder's opinion: Useful as ever during boss fights, and somewhat limited in
    utility elsewhere.
    
    Prayer: Removes any negative status effects
    
    Adder's opinion: ...well, at least it doesn't take up another slot in a normal
    set anymore...
    
    Fear: All enemies who have less Maneuver than the use lose 5 morale.
    
    Adder's opinion: Might be useful on chapters with the ODE system (dancing dolls
    are paaaaain), but aside from that, a bit useless.

    Aright! First mission- with some new characters from MX! Albero, Hugo and Folia
    are members of the Cry Wolves, and they pilot customized Gespensts. I'll be
    honest with you- on my first playthrough, this skill point had me baffled, but
    it's actually quite simple. The Einsts start out weakened, though they don't
    stay that way for long, given their HP Regen. Thusly, move everyone as far as
    they can go to the north. Albero should use Focus (15 point spell) and maybe
    Invincible (10 SP spell) if you're cautious. Attack the nearest Einst with your
    strongest available attack to kill it. Counterattack all that you can in the
    enemy phase.
    
    On the next turn, save your game! The skill point depends on this next attack
    connecting, and Folia doesn't have any hit-increasing spells right now. Have
    him take out the severely weakened Einst (he's on the Earth Cradle, the black
    orb like thing in the crater) while advancing as far forward as possible. His
    father should do the same and attack either one of the Glied units. Counter the
    other one on the enemy phase. Now, have Folia cast Guard and attack the Gemuet
    while being supported by Albero. Finish it off with a Jet Magnum to the face-
    if you don't quite make it, don't panic- you still have the enemy phase. To do
    it on the player phase, you need at least one attack to be a critical hit.
    
    When you shoot down all of the enemies, the Einst "Head", Reggiseur, appears to
    play with you. Don't panic- you just have to attack it a few times to end the
    stage. Your SP is restored, so don't worry about that. Use Invincible/Guard to
    minimize damage as you whack it a bit. Albero will use his new super-awesome
    Einst busting weapon to freeze it in place when sufficient damage is done. If
    things get hairy, note that each Gespenst has a Repair Kit, a Propellant Tank,
    and a Cartridge.
    
    For your troubles, you get two repair kits and two propellant tanks.

    Episode1 intermission: The first three options just let you view pilot and mech
    status, along with viewing a list of SCs. The first option under Custom is PP
    (Pilot Point) distribution, where you can increase pilot stats, terrain ratings
    and buy pilot skills. The next is mech customization, where you can spend your
    hard earned cash to improve your mechs. The four stats are Hit Points, Energy,
    Mobility, and armor. The next option is weapon upgrades, where you can increase
    the damage output of your weapons. Moving on, the next option is where you can
    equip various weapons to your mechs, if applicable. There's also another option
    but that isn't available yet. Lastly, you have pilot assignment, where you can
    switch pilots in between mechs. Under Parts, you can equip enhance parts to the
    mechs you've accumulated, or under the second option, switch frames. You should
    already be familiar with system. For now, don't do anything- you'll need your
    money later, and the Cry Wolves don't permanently join.

    don't actually have to destroy anything, but if you want to destroy the hefty
    Giganspada unit near the exit, you need to form a Twin squad with Albero and
    Hugo ASAP and start blasting it early. Thus, Hugo should get priority for will
    gains, since Albero is probably your top Ace. When you get to the marked Area,
    the Wolves grab the remains of the Soulgain and bugger off because the entire
    place is about to become a lot more einsty.

    Eek. Well, the Wendigo will run roughshod over your redshirt allies. Group them
    together on the warehouse and wait for Kai to show up. You can try to counter
    it, and support defense will cover you, but you probably won't hit. Fortunately
    with support defense your Huckebein Squad is pretty difficult to kill off. On
    turn 3, Kai arrives. Get him to the warehouse ASAP! When you get him there on
    turn four, start using Focus and whacking the thing around. On turn 5, Kai gets
    tired of goofing around and gets to maximum morale, and unlocks the Jet Magnum
    S, a powerful and badass move. Use it a couple of times to finish the Wendigo
    off.
    
    The Wendigo drops an SP drink.
    
    For your troubles, an M13 Shotgun, a Chaff Grenade, a repair Kit, a Propellant
    Tank, and 2 special bullet parts.

    See what I mean? Kai, Albero, and Hugo get some sexy new Gespensts. Folia is
    stuck in his old one, unfortunately, but it should be adequate for the purpose.
    Lamia's angelg is here too- though be careful with it. It's kinda fragile. Land
    the Gespensts to reap the benefits of the S-Rank and Start blowing things up.
    Folia should stay put and meet the Lion trio. One will probably break off to
    chase after the main group. Ignore it for now and keep advancing towards the
    Barrelions- by turn three, you should be just outside their range- they'll come
    and attack you, strangely. If you distributed morale evenly, everyone should be
    able to unleash their most powerful attacks (except Lamia, because she can't
    use Phantom Pheonix until she's level 10), so unleash them on the barrelions.
    Piece of cake.

    Burning Fire Dragon should OHKO any given gunsect, so keep that in mind when
    you reach 110 morale. When all of the Gunsects get shot down, some more foes
    appear- try to weaken the barrelions to be efficient. When two Gaorikas go down
    the Compatible Kaiser launches! Burn 'em up! Kouta's morale is maxed out, so he
    should have no trouble taking out these enemies. Leave one alive! There's an
    incredibly valuable item to be found on this map! From the southeast corner, go
    to the panel nine squares west and one square north. It has a distinctive roof,
    so you can't miss it. After you snag it, blast the last enemy and the mission

    Some new units- it's the Kurogane crew with their new ravens. Fun stuff. Your
    goal here is to take out as many units as possible within a very short amount
    of time. The enemy doesn't attack until turn 2, so you have to work quickly.
    Move everyone up as far as they can go (Ratsel should use Accelerate). On turn
    2, Have Carla attack the furthest Lion with her stealth boomerange, Sanger
    should KO the northernmost lion with his Giant Swing, Yuuki should attack the
    enemy in the forest with his strongest available attack and then move up with
    his hit and away skill, and Ratsel should landlion nearest him with the twin
    impact cannons. Provided you counter with your strongest attacks on the next
    turn, you should have no trouble. Be sure to not to KO a sixth enemy on the
    enemy phase!
    
    When six goes down, Murata delivers the Kurogane a righteous smack, but Raul
    saves the day. Now that the frantic scramble is over, focus on giving Sanger
    enough morale to use Unyou No Tachi. You may want to submerge the weakened
    Kurogane to keep it safe. After you take out the remaining grunts, focus on our
    friend Murata. Try to get him on counters, so that you don't incur heavy damage
    when your defenses are down. When he gets to about 16000~ HP, you can try to
    shoot him down for a Tesla drive. This will require twinning up Sanger and Raul
    and Yuuki and Carla, and smacking Murata with Unyou no Tachi combined with the
    Giganto Crusher, supported by the two twin linear cannons (Yuuki's strongest
    attack can't attack him at this range). It's entirely optional, but a Tesla
    drive is always good.
    
    In containers: A servo motor, a dual sensor, and a Tesla Drive.
    
    The Ashsaber is delivered after the mission, though you have no one to really
    put in it.

    A ton of new allies for you, all of them unupgraded. ~_~ Ah well. The main goal
    here is to to intercept the enemies before they can attack the Ladybird. The
    lions will go for whatever unit is closest, but the jets will head straight for
    the carrier. It's your job to take 'em out before they get there. Not all that
    tough, to be honest. Note that the AM gunner and the Hucky Mk III can combine
    into one unit- it's powerful, but it has no post movement attacks. The R-3 will
    probably be getting most of the kills here- be sure to use focus. Anyway, when
    all of our foes go down...
    
    Some more enemies appear, along with the Mironga, which casts Strike, focus, 
    guard, valor, and zeal. Needless to say, it can take care of itself. Take the
    fight to the enemy so it doesn't steal too many kills. There's nothing else
    after this, so blow all your remaining SP to take 'em down quickly.
    
    In containers: An assault blade, a booster, and a cartridge

    Ick, more Mirongas. Put the Grungust out front with Guard active to soak up the
    blows and use weak attacks to waste alert. On the next turn, start whacking at
    them. Use as many defensive spells as you need to keep from taking damage. They
    should actually go down pretty quickly. When three go down, Bad Mojo (TM) goes
    down- same deal as the last turn on the enemy phase. Waste the alerts with a
    Guard'd grungust. Now, focus on one Mironga and do it in- it'll take a few
    attacks, because it has a Guard of its own. Enjoy the spiffyness that follows.

    will help this. Work fast- you have a time limit. When they all go down, the
    Gigan manages to stand up and fight on against that weirdass flatfish. If you
    shot down the last tadpole on the enemy phase, then you'll have to recast guard
    on the next turn. Regardless, whack the abomination with Giga Unghia and Sonic
    Acceleration, if Leona's in range. He should go down fairly easily.

    ----------------
    
    It's Kouta against some bartolls to start out with. At this point, they're not
    too bad to deal with at present, but you'll definitely need to use Focus/Strike
    to get reliable hitrates. This situation is alleviated if you got the Custom
    CPU earlier and have it equipped to Kaiser. Anyway, for the skill point, take
    the fight to the Bartolls at the stadium- Kaiser Boomerang is both powerful and
    has great range- it'll be very useful. As per usual, most attacks will take be
    on the counter. When the skill point is achieved (or turn 3 rolls around)...
    
    The ATX team, along with Kai, arrives and Kouta runs off to find Shouko. It's
    up to your new allies to clean up here- Kyosuke and Bullet will probably need
    to use strike, having fairly inaccurate weaponry. Be sure to land on the edge
    of the stadium for bonuses. Kai's leadership aura is helpful too. When you
    shoot the remainder down, even more come. Grack. Form up defensively on the
    buildings and try to take down a Bartoll ASAP. The Hagane arrives with some
    much needed reinforcements- Ryusei's in his new ART-1 and pumped up, starting
    at 130 morale.
    
    Now, the ODE System is now in effect. That essentially means that all Bartolls
    share one pool of Morale- that is, if one Bartoll has, say, 120 morale and the
    others wouldn't, they still have 120 morale. That, and their evasion rates are
    improved when there are lots of bartolls on the field. Things get easier as you
    go, essentially. Use as many SCs as necessary to take them down quickly. Maybe
    because Banpresto is feeling like easing you into the whole menace, things are
    pretty manageable.
    
    In containers are an A adaptor, and two special bullet parts.
    
    For your troubles, a repair module, a resupply module, a spirit breaker, spider
    net, an apogee motor, a chobham armor, a screw module, a large generator, a 
    Huckebein Mk II, and a Grungust Type 2.

    Shoot down Murata by the start of turn 5
    
    ----------------
    |Stage Strategy|
    ----------------
    
    Ick. The skill point is a pain. Lune should hang back and fire off her Cross
    Smasher at the Mirongas. You need to work fast here, so don't bother putting
    her on the base- just use SCs to stay alive. Ibis should head straight for the
    Mumyou. Lune has trouble dodging, because the Valsione is pretty oudated by now
    and the Mirongas are pretty accurate anyway. Ibis has more luck, due to her S
    rank in the air and higher mobility. Note that her Psycho Blaster is disabled-
    not that it's all that useful. Don't destroy the fourth enemy on the enemy
    phase- this is important.
    
    Because on Turn 3 Rishu gives a verbal smackdown to Murata, casts a bunch of
    SCs, and prepares to kick some ass. If possible, have Ibis support him as he
    attacks Murata. If not, have Ibis attack normally after Rishu. This will amost
    assuredly bring some reinforcements on both sides- Kyle's Uber Mironga and some
    grunts. Masaki also appears at 130 Morale. Change to Cybird mode, cast focus,
    and attack with Cyflash so that you can cripple the entire force. Since Rishu
    has guard cast, he should counter murata during the enemy phase. Next turn,
    repeat the same- I had Lune use Psycho blaster to clear out the remaining grunt
    Mirongas and damage murata a little bit. Attack him again with Rishu and Ibis-
    for Rishu, use strike and invincible, for Ibis, use focus and soft reset. >_>
    You should be able to do him in on the enemy phase of four. Depending on how
    much damage Rishu took, either take him to the base to recover or dash over to
    Kyle and start whacking him. He retreats at a rather high HP value- this is a
    good thing, as you're probably exhausted at this point. You practically need
    strike to hit him.

    Things look relatively simple, but you're working under an unseen deadline.
    Don't go a' dawdling, now. Rush forward and smack the Gaorikas as fast as you
    can- they're not exactly difficult foes. They should go down quickly. However,
    a few more arrive with a mysterious duo of strange mecha. Kouta's also here,
    chasing after Shoko. He gets whacked, but Raul saves him and he recovers pretty
    quick. Now the real fight starts- Kouta has to cast strike and invincible, and
    attack the Teugatail (the pink/yellow one). Raul should follow up. The rest of
    your force should dash towards them and start opening fire as soon as you can.
    Use the remaining Gaorikas to build up morale for anyone that needs it. You'll
    be going right down to the wire on this one, but you should get her to the HP
    level required if you go at it with everything you have. Don't forget that Raul
    and Carla know support attack.

    Another mission where you have to work fast. Shove Ibis with her linear missile
    launcher out in front, next to Masaki and Lune for friendship bonuses. Make
    sure she's closest to the bartolls so she can counter them reliably. Save SP
    with Rishu and Lune, but Masaki and Ibis can blow it all. If you're confident
    in Ibis, send her out into the middle and lay waste. If not, keep her near the
    other units. Keep it up for four turns...
    
    The cavalry! And Shu! And a lot more Bartolls! No time to waste- you've got 3
    turns to trash them all. Fortunately, you've got three map attackers for your
    convenience, so use them! Save some of Shu's SP- the fact that he knows Valor
    will make getting rid of Kyle easier. Speaking of him, he goes after Lune like
    a crazed animal, attacking twice. Keep her out of the action with Alert cast
    so you can minimize damage. You need to fan out to get all of the Bartolls in
    time- Shu can take the entire left side by himself if you cast guard. Use MAP
    attacks as necessary. When you get ready to take on Kyle, waste his alert with
    a weak attack then pound on him with your strongest attacks. If you want the
    Mironga, you need to shoot him down with Lune and fulfill the skill point.

    Once again, you're under a pretty tight deadline. Hurry forward with Tasuku and
    Leona. The Hiryu Custom should also do this. Katina and Russel, quite frankly,
    aren't much help, but they should still advance so they can mop up if necessary
    (and it probably will be). Sleigh should cast focus and counter a whole lot-
    the Calion is rather difficult to hit. It also has a handy MAP attack, if you
    find yourself in a tight spot. Sleigh will be here for the long haul, so save
    her SP and resources if possible. The Hiryu Custom and GanDuro's ALL attacks
    will be helpful in bypassing support defense and twin squads. Things should
    wrap up without too much trouble. Unfortunately, some more appear to the north
    and the Hiryu Crew leaves. Focus and accelerate over to them (preferably in the
    asteroids for defensive bonuses), and hold out for a turn.
    
    Fortunately, the Kurogane and her crew arrives. Also, savor the perhaps one
    opprotunity you'll ever get to use the Cosmo Driver frame. Take out the bartoll
    units as swiftly as you can to trigger the rest of the enemies. After they
    arrive, so does Kouta. He doesn't do as well in space as he does on land, so be
    aware of that. Have him blast some Gaorikas for morale while the rest of your
    units tackle the remaining Bartolls. Most likely, Alion will score a hit or two
    on the Kurogane- defend when he attacks. After you take out the grunts, focus
    on Folka- he's the easiest to reduce HP from. Use strike and defensive measures
    to chip him down. His HP regen is annoying, but not exactly difficult to deal
    with. When you reduce his HP to about 25% HP, the map ends.
    
    In containers: A cartridge, and a special bullet part.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, it's time for for a major scrap. Infinite reinforcements
    in this mission- but let's worry about that later. First thing's first- you
    have to bust through the lines and get either battleship to the marked square
    on the Hellgate. While doing this, you need to blow up as many bartolls as you
    can. Simple, but with that many, the ODE system will be rather difficult to
    contend with. Cut a swathe through as quickly as possible and move your ships
    as far as you can go. Use SP as needed, but use it sparingly. When your ships
    cross a certain point (it should take about 3 turns)...
    
    More! And four special ones containing Kusuha and company. This is by far the
    most annoying part of the mission- you need to reduce them to about 770 HP but
    not shoot them down to shake them out of their torpor. Mercy from Ryoto and
    Rishu is very helpful, as are gatlings. And soft resetting. Masaki/Lune's MAP
    attack can also be helpful, but be careful- there's no real surefire way of
    doing this. Make it your top priority to get this part out of the way. When you
    do, focus on trashing as many Bartolls as possible while advancing your ships.
    Thankfully, the required number for the skill point has been reduced to fifty.
    It really shouldn't be difficult to shoot that many down- no special set up is
    required. Just make sure they don't swarm you. Move either ship on to the goal
    when you're ready to move on. The crew of the Kurogane join the fray to help
    out in the final battle against Juergen.
    
    In containers are a booster and a special bullet part.

    ----------------
    
    Be inspired by the music and charge. Be sure to land the Kaiser- it has an S on
    Ground terrain, and as we know by now, Bartolls can't be taken lightly. Units
    that have SP regen (if there are any, Mai and Gilliam notwithstanding) should
    take the forefront and start weakening the bartolls. Distribute morale gains
    evenly- you need everyone in top fighting form for the end of this mission. As
    you gradually chip away at their numbers, try not to advance too far. If you do
    a nasty group of reinforcements could ruin your day. When all but five bartolls
    remain, or you advance far enough towards the goal, Naked Green Lamia and her
    cadre of six appear. Her Uber Bartoll is nasty- tough to hit and packs a punch.
    Fortunately, it's armor is pathetic as ever, and 60000 HP isn't that much. Mop
    up the last bartolls to minimize her ODE bonuses and chip her down with Strike
    activated- she has double image. Make sure that Kyosuke finishes her off, or
    you lose. When you do...
    
    Boy that's ugly. How dare they do that to my precious Valsion series?! Juergen
    is -tough- 300K HP, 2000 armor, and guard. His attacks are pretty strong too.
    As a saving grace, he has no HP regen or full block. To that end, whack him as
    soon as you're able- don't bother waiting until all units are in position. You
    have to work as fast as you can here- 8 turns might seem like a lot, but this
    guy takes a ton to drop. As soon as you're able to put up a concentrated attack
    have Rishu use his armor breaker to increase damage done. Characters with only
    Focus will have a tough time here- try to have them attack early so his prevail
    bonuses don't jack up his hitrate too high. Use all of your most powerful moves
    and Valor, if you have it. Probably only a few pilots will at this point. This
    will definitely take two or three rounds. Standout attacks are the Tatsumaki
    Zankantou and the HTB Cannon, which belong to Dygenguard/Aussenseiter and SRX/R
    Gun Powered. He's a tenacious bastard, but he will fall eventually. When he
    does, cast luck for a truly large amount of money.

    Time for more quality time with the Cry Wolves. Albero and Hugo should land, as
    per usual, and rush forward. Folia should follow- not that he'll be of that
    much help. The Harpas units, (heretofor referred to as bats) are neither that
    durable nor agile. They have a post-movement all attack with rather good range,
    but it's not exactly a saving grace. Charge 'em and mow 'em down. The daggers
    will summon up a few more on the enemy phase of turn 2- no worries. Keep at it
    and they'll fall swiftly. The Daggers are also capable of attacks, and while
    they're a bit more durable than the bats, they don't pose much of a threat as
    well. it is worth noting that the Shura have low levels of counter and prevail-
    they get marginally stronger when at low HP. By placing Albero or Hugo in the
    middle of the daggers, they should be able to OHKO them on counterattacks with
    the 2 way cannon long range mode.
    
    In containers are two special bullet parts.
    
    For your troubles you get two repair kits, two propellant tanks, and two
    cartridges.

    As you might expect, the only genuinely helpful friendlies you have are the
    Wendigos. Anyway, same deal as last time- dash in and start blowing things up.
    Be sure to save on the first turn- the Daggers are now equipped with the super
    accurate stun shock. If you get pegged, you can't move for two whole phases.
    Naturally, this royally screws up your chances to get the battle mastery, so it
    might be a good idea to evade when you're attacked by a dagger instead of
    countering. Anyway, the Boffries are (heretofor referred to as lizards) tougher
    than the bats, but not by much. They can dodge moderately well, but it should
    not give you any real trouble. Once again, parking Albero/Hugo in the middle of
    the daggers will fix their wagons. Whichever has more morale. Pretty much a
    repeat of last mission with some friendlies to help you.

    Shoot down Tess (retreats at 10% HP) by the start of turn nine
    
    ----------------
    |Stage Strategy|
    ----------------
    
    This one's a little complicated. First of all, have the Cry Wolves move over
    to the warehouses to the right. Ignore the Reggiseur- you don't have the fire
    power to take it down. Instead, wait for Tess's force. It's rather pansy- your
    Gespensts can take 'em down easily. Try to save a few for later- a new arrival
    will need the morale. While this is going on, the Wendigos will keep the Head
    Honcho busy. It's entirely possible one will get shot down because they're
    rather stupid, but for the most part they make good meatshields. When and if
    Tess gets in range, start whacking her. On the enemy phase of turn 5, 
    reinforcements for both sides: a few Jetz grunts and... Axel Almer and Alfimi? 
    They're back from certain death, folks. Oh well.
    
    Next turn, raise Axel's morale with Alfimi's rouse and start blasting away at
    Tess. You want to get her HP down ASAP. Use Alfimi's Attune to save SP, but
    have Axel save his valor. He'll need it for the finishing blow. As you chip her
    down, who's to show up but our good friend Shu in his trusty Granzon? Given the
    newly appeared Einst grunts, there's probably a huge cluster of enemies right
    in front of him. Graviton Cannon will fix their wagons- cast Guard (and valor,
    if you want to get it over with in one attack) and go to town. Tess has low
    armor- she shouldn't take too long, but you still have to work fast. When she
    does go down, she horks a wendigo and retreats. Now you just have to wait for
    turn 13 to roll around, and you'll be done.
    
    In containers: An energy drain, a special bullet part, and a solar panel.

    |Stage Strategy|
    ----------------
    
    Our poor friend Touma is about to be squished by his lardliness Magnus, but
    Kouta does his best Rom impression and saves his bacon. Kouta should run south
    and draw the bats near after him. Weaken them, but don't shoot down more than
    one or two- morale for everyone when they get there. Keep it up for three turns
    and you get your reinforcements after Sanger righteously smacks down Magnus.
    Ignore Magnus! Just go after the grunts- the Fraus (from now on referred to as
    bulls) are tough and pack a punch, but are inaccurate. Raul's in his flyer
    frame, though most of his foes are ground based. Thus, get the Kurogane within
    range of him and switch to the Striker. Start whacking away at the Fraus- it'll
    take a while. Sanger should be careful if you haven't upgraded his mobility
    that much- the rest can dodge well enough.
    
    Anyway, Magnus will chase after him, but his hitrate is rather low. Mop up your
    foes- take your time and distribute kills evenly. There's no hurry. On enemy
    phase turn 7, Folka arrives with a few daggers and the skill point criteria is
    now clear- you need to chip him down to about 26000 and then whack him down
    with a mighty blow. Unfortunately, he's now at 130000 HP- so it can take a fair
    bit of time. Use support attacks and the twin bird strike to slowly take off HP
    - some of your pilots are learning valor, so this will make things easier. When
    he gets to about 26000, twin up Kouta and Sanger, cast Valor/Soul, and use the
    Kaiser Tornado/Umyou no Tachi. When he goes down, the map is cleared.
    
    In containers: a Chobham armor, a dual sensor, and Folka drops a Manual of Sure
    Kill Prowess (Not the official name, but god only knows what the real one is.)

    Alion reduced below 50% HP
    
    ----------------
    |Stage Strategy|
    ----------------
    
    Cast invincible on Folka and head east. Next turn, cast focus and head north
    and have Kouta stay put. Alion will just kinda watch, so don't worry. You need
    to lure the main enemy force to his general position so that your reinforcement
    units can reach 'em quickly. The ordnance used by Tess is fairly antiquated.
    The heavy barrelions are difficult to drop and they pack a mean punch, and
    their missiles are pretty accurate. Fortunately, they can hardly move, not even
    mentioning evasion. The Gaorikas, Landlions, and Flygias just don't have enough
    endurance to really be a threat. Distribute morale evenly and save SP. When the
    grunts are gone, whack Tess around a little. She'll retreat and make your life
    easier when she gets to about 50%- seeing as she hounds Raul's every step, as
    Fernando does with Folka, this is a good thing. Go after Alion next. Provided
    you protect yourself and use strike, he shouldn't be difficult to weaken enough
    to get the skill point. Fernando is essentially Alion without Double Image and
    higher morale- feel free to blow all your resources on him. Annoyingly, he has
    a little bit more HP than originally advertised, because he casts Vigor when
    you reduce his HP below 100K. Fortunately, Folka unlocks his two strongest
    attacks and regains all SP. This might take a turn or two. Don't worry too much
    if it does- the Valefar's HP regen isn't exactly mighty. When Fernando gets his
    butt kicked, the mission ends.

    turn, a whole mess of reinforcements appear. Fortunately, Folka and Raul also
    show up to help. Raul should head for the Gunsects, while Folka leads the lions
    southward. Kouta should cast focus and weaken the high HP enemies near him. The
    real cavalry arrives on turn 4.
    
    The crew of the Hagane! Thank goodness for timely arrivals. Clean up the grunts
    for morale while putting a reliable unit next to Tess and Despinis to draw fire
    from them. Unfortunately, Raul can't switch frames, so have him fall back or
    board the Hagane. His core fighter is pretty dinky. Tess is nothing new at this
    point- you should know her tricks from stage 18. Her low armor makes her easy
    pickings. Get her down to about 26000 HP and unleash your strongest attacks.
    The SRX's HTB cannon will do obscene damage to her. When you do her in, they
    bugger off and the Compatible Kaiser is soundly smacked by a mysterious new

    This stage is a bit annoying, being mostly water. Thusly, you need units that
    are good in the water or can fly. Units that don't have an S in the air are a
    bit disadvantaged in this mission. You'll want a unit with good ranged attacks
    to take on the barrelions, while your main force pushes through the Sealions
    and Guarlions. The sealions are one shot enemies- they're accurate, but they
    crumple fast and have a significant blind spot- attack from range one. The rest
    of the enemies are standard fare. While this is going on, the G Thundergate
    will run straight for Kouta and attack. Always have invincible cast on him.
    
    The Giganspada units are annoying, and have a propensity for defending on the
    player phase. They're also rather powerful, so exercise caution. It doesn't
    help that Lalia is chucking things at you as you chip away. Fortunately, with
    judicious use of all attacks, they go down at a decent rate. Lalia himself is
    the toughest of the Lolisquad, with guard and the most HP, but he's not that
    tough at all. To knock down the 30000 HP in one shot to get the skill point,
    twin up Kai or Kouta with another heavy hitter like Sanger or the SRX and use
    Soul. That should fix his wagon.

    him down on counters. You trigger your reinforcements at 91000 HP, so keep that
    in mind and don't do it on the enemy phase. When you do trigger this, Latooni
    arrives and gives Ryu and Mai the necessary data to perform their new synchro
    attack. The Hiryu Custom also arrives to help mop up. Distribute morale evenly
    by finishing off the weakened lions.
    
    Unfortunately, Bartolls arrive on turn six- take the necessary precautions on
    the player phase so as not to get owned by the ODE system- focus and guard, in
    a pair of words. Fortunately, the Kurogane and Hagane also arrive. Note that
    Ratsel is now in his Aussenseiter again. Blast through the Bartolls quickly.
    Murata is just another retreating boss- you should be used to them by now. He's
    tougher than the loli squad and you don't have as much morale as is the optimum
    amount, but it's not difficult. When he goes down... wait, didn't we kill that
    thing? Cliffhanger!
    
    In containers: a special bullet part, an apogee motor, and an armor breaker.
    
    For your troubles, a hybrid armor, an energy breaker plus, a mind blast, and 
    40K in cash.

    Another water heavy stage. Ick. And bartolls, to boot. This could be trouble if
    you're not careful. To top it off, you have to hurry. With your most competent
    airborne/waterborne units, charge ahead with all guns blazing. This stage is
    short and violent- blow as much SP as you need on the Bartolls. As you keep
    blasting your way through, the Valsion CF will take potshots at you. Thankfully
    for you, it is not equipped with ODE system and thus is not much of a threat.
    As usual, Bartolls fall pretty fast, provided you can hit them. Still, five
    turns is not a long time, so work as fast as you can. The Giganspadas seem to
    have been placed in this episode merely to slow you down- use your strongest
    ALL attacks on them, and use Valor if you need to. Even though it might seem a
    little counterintuitive, the SRX is a good unit for this map, because of its
    cheap Hi Finger Launcher ALL and general firepower. You should make it if you
    really put the pedal to the metal. Remember that you have a few units with MAP
    attacks as well. The Valsion CF itself is pretty simple, and retreats at 50% HP
    anyway.

    Tiger Dragon King... has arrived! Cast Focus and invincible and show that fool
    what for. Two or three Random Spikes will fix his wagon. Well, seemingly. Poor
    Bullet gets whacked by the enemy's new attack and switches to RyuKoOh. This is
    messy- retreat as fast as you can towards the base. Cast Invincible each turn.
    Two turns after you got whacked, the cavalry arrives. Unfortunately, so do some
    Shura. Be careful with Shine- she can dodge well, but one hit... and bye bye
    Fairlion. Anyway, put them all on the warehouses for HP and EN regen. Now it's
    your job to hold out for a goodly while- six turns. Try not to take out too
    many grunts so that your incoming force can have some for Chujin smiting. At
    the appointed time, Kusuha gets out of her funk and whacks the thing a good one
    with the trusty Hazan Ken, and your allies arrive. Now, divide kills as evenly
    as possible, and when you're ready, start chipping down the Chujin. Its armor
    is absolutely terrible- if you throw an armor breaker on it, it'll only have
    250. With only that much, doing 31000 damage in one go is easy.
    
    In containers: a special bullet part, and a spirit drain.

    Sanger, Masaki and Folka are out on recon duty, and as bait. They get a small
    force for their troubles- rush up and take them out. Nothing new here. When you
    take out the last enemy, be sure to have focus/guard cast on everyone. Ack!
    Surrounded! Things look grim when the Andras squishes the Zankantou, but the
    default weapons for Dygenguard are unlocked and Sanger is still more than ready
    for a fight. Now, the Grimoires are new- they're a cross between Boffries and
    Fraus- they're pretty tough and fairly good at dodging, but not as good as the
    others at their speciality. Blast them down at your leisure- there's plenty
    morale to be had in the as of yet immobile Fraus. Hold out for a bit... and
    reinforcements!
    
    Wait, Fernando isn't an ally! Ah well. Hold on for a bit more, and -then- your
    reinforcements come. Phew. Standard map from here on in. Bulls are tough as
    always, but none too accurate. Magnus will chase after Sanger and probably miss
    a whole lot. Fernando won't have much more luck with Folka. You can either
    split into two groups or stay together and make a semicircular sweep. Taking
    down the Valefar at this point is child's play- 10% is totally paltry. You
    shouldn't have to twin up at all.

    attacks (which enables tornado blade), you can switch in the frames screen.

    First thing's first- get ready to whack Tess around to trigger reinforcements
    ASAP. Kouta should wait a good distance away from Tess so she has to move to
    whack him, then counter with Kaiser Tornado. Your other units should move in to
    position/start attacking the Wendigos. You should be able to get her down to
    the necessary level without too much trouble. Then a mess of reinforcements for
    both you and the enemy. That's a lot of bartolls. Your dodgiest, most reliable
    unit should take the forefront and start attacking and reducing their numbers
    ASAP. The ODE system is nasty with that many running around- these units are
    also slightly upgraded. All in all, this is a nasty battle. All/W attacks are
    your best friends. You don't have a whole lot of time, either. Fortunately, as
    always, Bartolls crumple fast if you peg them. The Valsion CF is a minor road
    block at best- but don't shoot it down! Get it below 13000 HP and the map ends.
    
    In containers: 2 special bullet parts and a spirit breaker.

    |Stage Strategy|

    First of all, make sure that Royoto and Rishu are in range of the first two
    daggers. Cast Mercy, Valor, and strike. You'll leave the dagger with 10 HP and
    it retreats. Next turn, do it with the other two. In the meantime, start the
    Shura whacking. They've gotten a whole lot tougher since your last fight- be
    careful. Prevail now really means something on these evasive and armored grunts
    you have to whack. Due to their clusters, it shouldn't take too long. Use ALL
    attacks as needed, and try to get some kills for Fiona and Lamia. When the
    daggers are captured, Tess and company appear again west of your starting point
    to make life miserable. They'll all head forward towards Kouta.
    
    Now the trick here is to ignore the G-Thundergate. You can finish the mission
    without even scratching it- just focus on Tess. When she gets reduced below 50%
    HP, her HP takes another big dip when the G-Compatible Kaiser forms and Kouta
    shows off the new Over Kaiser Sword. Finish her off with a strong attack for an
    oricalconium. Now, focus on Alion. He's not too tough, but he retreats at 
    fairly high HP. Tornado Blade/HTB cannon might be needed to achieve the needed 
    damage output. After that, whack around Mardict a bit. Altis will retreat when 
    he dips below about 40% HP and the mission ends.
    
    In containers: A megabooster and an Oricalconium.

    level up and get a few kills for characters you don't use much, so you might
    want to look into that.

    One last hurrah for the Cry Wolves- all but the named characters have bit the
    big one. You've got to get to the marked square and fire off your super anti
    Jetz warhead. To do this in three turns requires Hugo and Albero to twin up and
    use Accelerate. Have Hugo cast Spirit, and have Albero attack all the enemies
    he can during the enemy phase to get to 110 morale. Form a twin and run. Folia
    can hide in a corner. You should get there on turn 3. Unfortunately, the Cry
    Wolves' efforts are for naught, and Folia gets blown up while defending his
    father. Hugo fares little better- his gespenst gets royally trashed. When all
    seems lost, Axel and Alfimi appear to combat the Jetz menace. Head towards the
    teeming masses, but don't kill any of them. Your other forces need the morale.
    
    And they arrive a turn afterwards. With luck, right in the middle of those
    previously mentioned teeming hordes. Deploy a few units you don't usually use
    and take advantage of the fact that these enemies are easy pickings. Try to
    evenly distribute morale- it's rather difficult, since there aren't actually
    that many enemies. Alfimi's Rouse is very helpful. When you're ready, hit the
    big guy with an armor breaker and start whacking him about. I reccomend leaving
    the animations on at least once. At 50%, the Chujin from earlier arrives for
    whatever reason. He also arrives after a goodly amount of turns have passed, so
    if you want to wait for him, feel free. He doesn't drop anything important, so
    you can just ignore him if you want. The Reggiseur is tough- 200000 HP and the
    Guard skill, along with being freaking huge. He'll go down eventually. If you
    feel theatric, finish him off with the final grand cross. Or Alfimi.
    
    In containers: A special bullet part, and the Chujin drops a Spirit Taker Plus
    if you shoot it down
    
    For your troubles: A high efficiency targeting device, a Tesla Drive S, a G

    finishing moves so that the bosses will go down more easily.

    ----------------
    |Stage Strategy|
    ----------------
    
    One of the more difficult skill points in the game- you'll need to deploy units
    with good all attacks and powerful post movement attacks. A MAP attacker or two
    wouldn't go amiss either. There's not much strategy involved- bust through as
    quickly as possible to get a few ALL attackers near the Bull twins. Don't be
    afraid to use Valor to expedite the process. Rouse and Drive are also helpful
    in increasing your damage output. When all of your foes go down, quite a few
    more appear to get in your way, including a slightly crazed Fernando. To make
    things easier on yourself, hang back and let him come to you. Then start the
    old familiar process of boss-whacking. If you want the towell headband (which
    increases starting morale by 10), you'll need to bust out some seriously strong
    moves to take Fernando out at 30%. Personally, I don't think it's worth it.
    Regardless, Fernando goes even more crazy and whacks Folka a good one. Things
    look grim, but then...
    
    Folka apotheosizes his machine! And it's truly beastly. He uses his strongest
    attack to send Fernando packing. Now the map is pretty simple- take down the
    remaining enemies, then head for Magnus and his unmoving guard. Magnus is not
    difficult- he just takes a while to chip down. By now, you should be more than
    used to this. Armor breaker helps, but isn't mandatory. He is huge. He has huge
    guts. CLEAVE AND SMITE. 
    
    In containers: A repair Kit, a propellant tank, a dustproofing, Fernando drops
    a Towell Headband if you shoot him down, and Magnus drops a Giga Generator.

    |Stage Strategy|
    ----------------
    
    Another difficult skill point- you've got to take out half of the enemies in
    the space of about one turn. Not easy, especially given the annoying terrain.
    Personally, I had Folka out in front and rushing in, laying waste to everything
    he can reach. A few morale boosting spells on him would definitely help. Split
    your forces to deal with the enemies hiding the in the wings. Again, use Valor
    or even Zeal to accomplish your goals. After Folka weakens them, have the rest
    of your force mop them up. With luck, you'll earn it.
    
    On turn 3, Altis appears in the Mardict for a final fragdown. Take down the
    remaining enemies, cast morale gaining spells as needed, then carefully head
    towards him. The closest unit to him should have a defensive measure on it,
    lest it eat a terrible attack. Altis is pretty much the same as he was during
    episode 29, you just have to take him out entirely this time. Use an armor
    breaker if you need to- though you'll need to use Fury to get it through. If
    none of your Armor Break capable units have it, twin them up with a unit that
    has it and use Armor breaker as part of the twin. When Altis goes down, after
    he and Folka reconcile, Tess busts in riding a mironga (?) and kills him. Folka
    is rather upset at this, but Sanger snaps him out of it.

    Defeat all enemy units aside from Meisis before the start of turn seven.
    
    ----------------
    |Stage Strategy|
    ----------------
    
    First off, the skill point is very generous. You can probably take 'em all down
    in three or four. However, it won't be easy- these catgirl things pack a mean
    punch and they're the dodgiest grunts you'll ever see. Use strike, attune, and
    focus as necessary. As usual, I put Folka out in front with focus activated so
    he can fling out his cheap ALL attack with impunity. Due to sheer the number of
    enemies, morale is not an issue. When you manage to actually peg them, Sitris
    crumple pretty fast. Meisis might snipe you a bit, but it's no big deal- she
    doesn't gain morale when her subordinates go down. The Peirine is a pretty cool
    looking machine, but it crumples extraoridnarily fast. Try not to spend a lot
    of SP or EN on her.
    
    When she goes down, Tess moves in to finish her off- but is stopped by Alion!
    And it turns out it's actually Argo. OH SNAP CONSPIRACY UNMASK'D. Meisis is,
    shall we say, incredibly angry at Misal. Fortunately, Alion stops her from any
    rash action. Unfortunately, Shura King Alkaid appears to settle the score once
    and for all. The remaining Shura also join him- except for Fernando, who is
    apparently ordered on to your side. Well, more help is always nice. The Shura
    duo come in at high morale with hefty upgrades to their machines. Woot! Save
    their SP for the boss fight. The Shura grunts are nothing new at this point,
    though they're pretty heavily upgraded. Smash your way through, resupply your
    units if necessary, and go after Alkaid.
    
    Who is very tough, clocking in at about 370000 HP. Be sure to use an one of the
    armor breakers on him. Use all the SP you want, but try to keep some EN in your
    units. When you break him down... he apotheosizes, because his first form was
    apparently just a test. Great. Fortunately, your SP is restored fully. Blast
    him again with armor breaker and hold nothing back this time- HTB Cannon spam,
    Soul'd twins, support attacks, the lot. He has rather low armor, fortunately,
    and no Guard. He should go down again after a magnificent battle. He dubs our
    poor Folka Shura King and admits defeat very well. Time to smash our way even
    further into the Swordian. CAST LUCK WHEN YOU SCORE THE FINISHING BLOW.
    
    In containers are: A thruster, a propellant tank, and an SP Drink.

    ----------------------
    
    Shoot down Argo's Mironga by the start of turn 4
    
    ----------------
    |Stage Strategy|
    ----------------
    
    One last hurrah for Bartolls. At this point, they're pretty much just another
    hurdle. Argo's Mironga is quite pansy, but it does have double image, so use
    strike. Misal will take potshots at you, but they're not entirely dangerous.
    Misal himself is stronger than Meisis, but a total pansy compared to Alkaid.
    Doing him in should not prove difficult at all. Try not to blow too much on him
    even if you have SP regen- this mission isn't quite the marathon the last one
    was, but it's still a pain to wait around and wait for things to regenerate.
    
    Anyway, when Misal goes down like the bitch he is, Tess and Lalia arrive with
    some reinforcements. Creepy reinforcements. Nightmare fuel reinforcements. Flat
    fish, wendigos, and tadpoles. Fortunately, Axel, Alfimi, and Shu (how in god's
    name did they get in?) appear to help on opposite sides of the map. Tadpoles
    and flatfish are mere obstacles, and wendigos, while difficult to hit, do not
    have a whole lot in the way of attack power. When you deal with the loli-squad,
    note that Lalia will support defend Tess, the easiest one to take down. Either
    take a few potshots to waste his defenses, or go after him. Or use a couple of
    combo attacks. If you want a T-Link sensor, you have to shoot down one of them
    at about 40%- at this point, I wouldn't bother, but it's up to you.
    
    When you do that,Duminass appears... and absorbs the two, creating Duminass
    Triton. This is your last foe on this map- resupply, regenerate, and prepare
    for a fragdown. Compared to Alkaid, Duminass is pretty weak. However, she/it
    has Guard (but starts at 100 morale anyway so it's inconsequential for a bit),
    and only about 370000 HP as opposed to 370000+450000. Fire off an armor breaker
    and set up a good ring of support attackers (Axel, Alfimi, Raul, and Fiona are
    all very good at this and they're forced deploys). Like Alkaid, you should be
    sure to cast Luck before you finish her off for a ton of cash.
    
    In containers: A special bullet part, a hyper jammer, a T-Link Sensor (if you
    shot down Tess/Lalia), and a Z.O Armor.

    Destory all Swordian Guards before Dark Brain (GROAN)
    
    ----------------
    |Stage Strategy|
    ----------------
    
    Geeez... I hate this stage. First thing's first- start spamming Rouse and Great
    Rouse right off the bat. There is simply not enough morale to go around to get
    by without it. While you're doing this, pull everyone back as far as they can
    go. You need to get the Swordian guards to chase you, so that the Dark Brain
    doesn't start sniping you with his rather righteous 12 range. Now, on to that
    subject- the Swordian Guards clock in at about 220000 HP a piece, with 1600
    armor and Guard. That is a recipe for a major headache- pilots with Drive are
    great here, like Axel, Alion, and Fernando. Get as much morale as quickly as
    possible and gang up on the first one that comes in range. It takes a while,
    but a repeated barrage of your powerful attacks will bring it down. You can use
    Valor if you want if you have SP Regen, but it just makes for more regen down-
    time later. Slowly hop from Guard to Guard and be sure to avoid their attacks-
    which are extremely brutal and accurate. Granzon has a ton of trouble here- if
    Shu doesn't use Guard, it's pretty much over for him. You can pair him up with
    a pilot with fury to use his Stun Shock/Armor Breaker if you want. If you felt
    like not deploying him, then, well, disregard. >_> When you take down a Guard,
    casting luck or training will give you a ton of cash, so keep that in mind. You
    should also note that the Guards have beam absorb- which makes Beam (B) attacks
    used against them actually -heal- HP. Fortunately, their aren't a whole lot of
    those weapons around at this point...
    
    When they all go down (this isn't mandatory, but taking on the Dark Brain with
    those bastards sniping you is not advisable), take as much time as you need to
    recover your resources. If you want to be extra cautious, pre-cast Valor/Alert/
    Invincible, wait for the SP spent to come back, and then attack. Armor breaker
    is a -must- here. If you brought Wurger L/Granzon along, Stun Shock is also
    highly reccomended (though it's definitely not mandatory. It just helps a great
    deal.). He has a ton of armor, level 9 prevail, and 380000 HP. Get to work, but
    conserve your resources! Because when you bring him down (Use luck!)...
    
    Welcome to the toughest boss in the game, Dark Brain's second form. This butter
    fly like creature has a whopping 580000 HP and the strongest ALL attack in the
    game. However, his armor is much weaker. Think of this form as a longer version
    of the first. You don't have the luxury of an SP recharge, so blow all of your
    remaining SP on him. Zeal, Enable, Hope, and Renew like mad when your attackers
    need it and keep bashing him. He'll go down after one hell of a fight... and
    start speaking in the Kansai Dialect? Well, okay. I guess being beat down like
    that messes with even the darkest of brains. There's a bright flash of light...

    This is it, ladies and gents! The final battle! In a betrayal that surprises
    just about everyone but Masaki, Shu decides it's time to end things and sees
    fit to activate the Kabara Progam and turns his already formidable machine into
    the Neo Granzon. The good doctor also summons up a few Valsion Customs. Don't
    panic- while they're still a pain in the ass, these guys aren't nearly as tough
    as the swordian guards, and laughably weak in attack power. The same strategy
    from last stage applies here- increase morale with spells and pull back to get
    the enemy to come to you. Shu politely hangs back and watches as you lay the
    hurt down on him. Stay out of his range! His attacks -hurt-, even though his
    overall statistics are much less durable than the dark brain. The valsions will
    go down much easier than the Swordian Guards, but they can still take a while.
    
    
    When you do, Shu will no longer hold anything back- he casts a few SCs, and
    then unlocks the Anti-regression cannon. You'll probably want to wait until
    strike wears off before getting near him- unlike the other bosses he has a MAP
    attack. And it's quite painful. It has several shots, so make sure your units
    are protected at all times. Shu is quite a bit easier than the Shura King and
    Dark Brain, but if you take him lightly, he -will- mess you up. That being said
    this is more of a cool-down mission than anything, so just enjoy yourself and
    relive a bit of SRW history. The usual boss-smiting tactics apply here- just be
    careful of his ALL and Map attacks, and you'll be fine. When you're done, enjoy
    the credits!

    |IX. Secrets|
    -------------
    
    Strangely, most secrets from the previous installment are compulsory. There are
    still a few here, however, that you need to work for.
    
    $$$$$$$$$$
    Custom CPU
    $$$$$$$$$$
    
    In stage 6, move Kouta to a building with a distinct roof. From the SE corner,
    this building is nine squares west and one square north.
    
    A very, very, VERY good item to get. Unless you're adverse to wasting turns,
    get it.
    
    $$$$$$$$$$$
    Hero's Mark
    $$$$$$$$$$$
    
    Folka and Kouta must be a combined level of 65 by the end of Stage 25.
    
    A good item, but they make it pretty hard to get, even if you abuse Kouta and
    Folka.
    
    $$$$$$$$$$
    Steel Soul
    $$$$$$$$$$
    
    Tetsuya and Lefina must be a combined level of 55. Combined kills for the two
    must also be at 55 or above. These requirements must be met by stage 30's end.
    
    Ironically, this is easier to get than the Hero's Mark. Just use your battle
    ship's All attacks and Gain often. Worth every kill and casting.
    
    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$
    Shishiou Blade
    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$
    
    Bullet, Rishu, and Sanger must have a combined kill count of 95 by the end of
    stage 25.
    
    At this point, the weapon is pretty underwhelming. If you're an equippable
    weapon fan, then it's not too much of a hassle, but...
    
    $$$$$$$$$$$$
    Boost Hammer
    $$$$$$$$$$$$
    
    Mai must have a kill count of 50 by the end of stage 30.
    
    Better than the Shishiou Blade, but it's still getting a bit obsolete. You have
    to use Mai a lot, but the ART-1 is a good unit, so it's no big loss or waste of
    resources.
    
    $$$$$$$
    Mironga
    $$$$$$$
    
    Take the Earth Route during the path split. On stage 13, obtain the battle
    mastery point and destroy Kyle with Lune. You'll receive it after the scenario.
    
    Now that you have to take a path split, and the End Breaker is no longer free,
    it's a toss up. If you're a fan of the design, go for it, but it's not that
    good.

    |XI. Contact policy|
    --------------------
    
    If you plan to contact me at all, I IMPLORE you to read this section. Yes, my
    friends, IMPLORE.
    
    You may reach me at IrtehAdder on AIM. I'm on most of the day, Pacific Timezone
    (IE, Oregon. Howdy to all fellow Oregonians?). However, before you do contact
    me out of the blue, read these guidelines.
    
    HOW TO CONTACT ADDER:
    
    Only IM me if I'm set to online status. That's just common courtesy, ya?
    
    Try to be nice, and, barring that, at least not hostile.
    
    The IM you send me should probably have the words FAQ in it, so I don't
    promptly block you for taking advantage of the fact that I posted my AIM SN at
    an easily available place.
    
    Examples of good ways to contact me:
    
    "Hi! I was reading your FAQ, and I found a mistake. Mind if I point it out?"
    
    "In your FAQ, there's something a bit unclear... could you maybe word it a bit
    better?"
    
    "Hey, I found out the exact *insert requirement of something I'm unsure of here
    *. Think you could add it in?"
    
    Stuff like that. Any contributions made will be placed in the "Updates" and
    "Credits" chapters, along with your SN, unless you object. :3
    
    HOW NOT TO CONTACT ADDER:
    
    Being excessively confrontational, swearing profusely, personal insults, and
    other likeminded things will not get you far- heck, they'll probably get you
    blocked.
    
    "omg u fkin farg0t u mssed up *insert mistake here*!!111"
    
    "Your FAQ sucks. Go to hell."
    
    "OMG, I can't believe you're advocating that strategy. Do you suck at this game
    or something?! Retard."
    
    So if you did have a point or contribution to make, good luck doing it now.
    
    -Why I don't use E-Mail-
    
    This is a personal flaw of mine, it really is. And I should really fix it. But
    I just can't ever remember to check my e-mail. Maybe if GameFAQs had a Personal
    Message System or something... If you don't have access to AIM, then you can
    always try making a topic on the OGG board. I'm often there- if only lurking.
