INTRO TO VERSION 7.0

It has been quite awhile. Indeed, it has been a long time since this FAQ
had a major update, seeing as how this game is now a golden oldie. 
However, with the new era of the Playstation, there has been a remake of
this game, along with its presence in the awesome Final Fantasy Anthology,
which should hit US shores after the arrival of FF8! With this looming
re-release, an update to what has become an archaic FAQ is indeed in order.
I have rewritten the entire walkthrough and content to modernize what was
once the best FF3 FAQ available (without all of those pesky errors so
common in even Nintendo's official guide ^_^). This Walkthrough, unlike
many other FAQs, goes into excruciating detail about each area, and
originally took a long time to create. Because this was made using the 
American FF3, it is referred to by this name rather than the FF6 monicre 
that it actually, technically, is. If you are a purest and want to read 
the true story, you will have to decipher the Japanese in FF6 for 
yourself or find a translation (I'm sure there is one out there).

For those of you who remember or are still a part of the long history of
Gamewiz from way back in the days when AOL was a much valued partner
in the video game experience, welcome back. Gamewiz lives on through
newsletters, and still holds a major role in my life. This FAQ has
continued its livelihood as my most successful work, and has now had a 
new breath of life to drive it forward thanks to the rerelease and the 
obvious popularity of the FF3 and 6j ROMs. Most sections have been 
completely rewritten and rearanged for a better 'flow' through the text. 
The entire Square Interviews section has been taken out because of how
archaic they are now. If you wish to view these interviews from magazines,
drop me a line; I save everything. 

With the Playstation versions, there has been a need for more than just 
codes for the good 'ol Game Genie, so a future update will include Game 
Shark codes and perhaps descriptions of the new CG movies present in 
the game.

As with every FAQ I write, please, PLEASE try NOT to use this FAQ as a
crutch. The true gaming experience is that of using your own skill and
cunning to complete the game. Only use this FAQ if you feel that you
are stuck and have tried all options or have completed the game and now
wish to dig out every hidden secret and nuance crammed into it.

WHERE TO FIND THIS FAQ:
The latest version of this FAQ is available at:
http://www.gamefaqs.com
http://home.earthlink.net/~step808/home.html
Alternately, contact me (kingkung@earthlink.net) or Dr Gamewiz 
(drgamewiz@aol.com) and ask for the update.

For Wizard and Jon, my fellow creators who are now unacounted for,
I would like to present you with the finest FF3 FAQ you will ever
read. Enjoy!

Here is the history of the FF3 FAQ:

Version 1.0a - (By JonN2000)  
 - The first FF3 FAQ ever!

Version 1.0b - (By King Kung)
 - Including a Walkthrough and more, this FAQ was better 
   organized and clearer than Jon's FAQ.

Version 2.0 - (By Wizard 201)
 - Packed with info, stats for weapons, monster list, GG codes, and 
   other miscelaneous info.

Version 3.0 - (By King Kung)
 - Everything from Version 2.0 and more including different
   strategies with weapons and magic.

Version 4.0 - (By Wizard 201, JonN2001 and King Kung1)  
 - Everything in Version 3.0 plus interviews with Square representitives, 
   MORE misc. info on desperation moves, Lore & Rage Lists, Sketch/Control 
   lists, 'The Best for FF3', greatly improved monster list and more GG 
   codes.

Version 4.7 - (By Wizard 301, JonN2001 and King Kung)
 - Includes more GG Codes, extra Game Genie tricks, more misc. info, 
   Runic and Esper List, improved Rage List plus an FF3 CD List with 
   all the tracks and times.

Version 5.2 - (By GWS Wizard, JonN2002 and King Kung)
 - This was the 'final' version of the FF3 FAQ. It includes a new article
   on SquareSoft, better formatting, and minor grammer fixes. Rumor
   section deleted to squelch rampant false rumors.

Version 6.0 - (By GWS Wizard, JonN2002 and King Kung)
 - NEW Final version. :)

Version 6.1 - (By GWS Wizard, JonN2002 and King Kung)
 - Even NEWer Final version. Yes, we've added even more, as new secrets 
   have been discovered involving the Game Genie. Go figure. :)

Version 6.5 - (By GWS Wizard, JonN2002 and King Kung)
 - Okay, screw that final version crap. This contained minor, miniscule 
   changes, but they were significant enough.

* Insert multi-year break here. ;) *

Version 7.0 - (By King Kung)
 - MAJOR MEGA ULTRA UPDATE. A COMPLETE rewrite of the entire FAQ to
   edit out any remaining issues. Things have been moved around so that 
   they make more sense now. Added and edited the various charts, info 
   on the Playstation version, and something for Tetsuya0's FF3 Hard 
   Type ROM Hack. The interviews have all been taken out because they 
   serve no purpose now.

---------------------------------------------------------------
                      PART ZERO-Character Guide
---------------------------------------------------------------
By GWS Wizard and JonN2002; Rewrite by King Kung

Most of this info is obtained from several Japanes books released
by Square. They are notorious for releasing books that go into
great detail to describe each character. The Skills numbers reflect
what the stats that a character usually begins the game with.
Equipment is a basic description of what that character can
normally equip. Obviously, there are some things that are seperate
from these (Snow Muffler, male or female only items, etc.) Names
given are from the US Final Fantasy 3, with the Japanese
difference, if any, listed below in parenthesis. Notes are given
after the character description about some specific characteristics.

Terra Branford: Gifted Magic Warrior
(Tina)

PROFILE    Age:18  Height:5'7"  Weight:105 lbs.
SKILLS     Power:31  Quickness:33  Magic:39  Strength:28
EQUIPMENT  Sword, Helmet, Armor

SPECIAL SKILL: Morph - Turn into more powerful being

Daughter of Madonna and the Esper Maduin, Terra is the the unique
Product of crossbreeding. In the beginning, Terra storms into Narshe
in Imperial MagiTek armor. The vile Empire has brainwashed her
and is uses her natural magic abilities for its own greedy uses.
But when she finds the frozen Esper, something in her awakens, and
soon after becomes a part of the rebellion. Over the course of the
game she will learn to love others, a skill which the Empire squeezed 
out of her. Though she may grow to doubt her signficance, the success 
of the Returners (and the world) depends on her powers.


Locke Cole: Treasure Hunter
(Lock)

PROFILE    Age:25  Height:5'9"  Weight:147 lbs.
SKILLS     Power:37  Quickness:40  Magic:28  Strength:31
EQUIPMENT  Dagger, Sword, Plain Sword, Helmet, Light Mail

SPECIAL SKILL: Steal - Take item from enemy
               Capture - Take item and attack
Locke plays the suave adventurer and proclaims himself to be a 
treasure hunter, but others regard him as a thief. His past 
is shrouded in a veil of tragedy. His skills at appropriating 
(read: stealing) items will save your party money and effort. With
the right relic he can also attack while he swipes the enemie's
valuables. He remains a constant and true companion throughout 
your journey.


Edgar Roni Figaro: Mechanic

PROFILE    Age:27  Height:6'2"  Weight:169 lbs.
SKILLS     Power:39  Quickness:30  Magic:29  Strength:34
EQUIPMENT  Spear, Sword, Knight Sword, Helmet, Armor

SPECIAL SKILL: Tools - Battle with special contraptions

King Edgar of Figaro secretly supports the Returners while paying 
lip service to the Empire. When Imperial forces storm his castle,
he quickly severs all ties to Gestahl. His mechanical skills and use of
technology become great advantages against the Empire. But what
secret troubles lie in this womanizing King's past? Only a reuniting
with his brother Sabin can reveal the truth.


Sabin Rene Figaro: Blackbelt
(Mash)

PROFILE    Age:27  Height:6'3"  Weight:233 lbs.
SKILLS     Power:47  Quickness:37  Magic:28  Strength:39
EQUIPMENT  Knuckles, Hat, Light Armor

SPECIAL SKILL: Blitz - Attack with martial arts techniques

King Edgar's brother has studied the ways of the martial arts 
masters and now he possesses awesome physical skills. After the 
battle on Mt. Kolts, Sabin becomes one of the most valuable 
members of your party. His Blitz technique requires dexterity, 
but the attacks are powerful enough to overthrow many enemies 
with one hit. Those familliar with fighting games might be right 
at home with this brawler. He will acquire more advanced Blitzes 
as he advances in levels, but only a visit with his teacher can 
round out his skills.


Celes Chere: Rune Knight

PROFILE    Age:18  Height:5'9"  Weight:165 lbs.
SKILLS     Power:31  Quickness:31  Magic:29  Strength:31
EQUIPMENT  Sword, Knight Sword, Helmet, Armor

SPECIAL SKILL: Runic - Absorb magic as MP

This woman's beauty hides her raw grit and powerful abilities.
When you first meet Celes, she is an Imperial prisoner, but it 
turns out that she was once one of the Empire's generals.
Genetically engineered by the Empire to kill without question,
she turns against it to prove a powerful ally. As an ally, she
is a strong fighter and her Runic Blade may just save your entire
party on several occasions. Like Terra, she is blessed with the 
"gift" of magic, although hers are present due to a genetic process
involving Magicite. Because of this, she will develop powerful
magic skills without difficulty.


Shadow: Ninja

PROFILE    Age:Unknown  Height:5'10"  Weight:145 lbs.
SKILLS     Power:39  Quickness:38  Magic:33  Strength:30
EQUIPMENT  Ninja Sword, Hat, Light Armor

SPECIAL SKILL: Throw - Toss items at enemy
               Interceptor - Counter/block enemy attacks

Shadow, the lonely ninja, travels the world selling his skills 
to the highest bidder. His only trusted companion is his dog, 
Interceptor, who can also help your party. Shadow comes and goes 
at will. His past, along with his true identity, are shrouded behind
his own shadow. His hidden secrets often give him nightmares.


Cyan Garamonde: Noble Knight
(Cayenne)

PROFILE    Age:50  Height:5'10"  Weight:158 lbs.
SKILLS     Power:40  Quickness:28  Magic:25  Strength:32
EQUIPMENT  Katana, Helmet, Armor

SPECIAL SKILL: SwdTch - Charge up for sword attacks

A chivalrous and proper knight, Cyan retains the throne at Doma
castle. Brave Cyan loses his family in the horrible poisoning at
Doma, but he doesn't lose his nerve. Alone, he sets out to attack
the Empire! You'll turn his powerful sword to the good of the
Returners and the world, but for him to become a true warrior, he
must deal with his losses and loneliness.


Gau: Wild Child

PROFILE    Age:13  Height:5'3"  Weight:169 lbs.
SKILLS     Power:15  Quickness:16  Magic:21  Strength:14
EQUIPMENT  Hat, Light Armor

SPECIAL SKILL: Leap/Rage - Learn and use attacks of the enemy

The Wild Boy of the Veldt, Gau, joins your party if you feed him 
some meat. He'll reward you with a great prize, but he is a 
useful ally, too. Gau's Rage attacks can slash through unsuspec-
ting enemies with amazing force. Having spent most of his life
among the animals of the Veldt, he has learned to immitate their
attacks to survive. Once he has joined the Returners, he will
call upon the fighting techniques of the most vicious of beasts
against the Empire. Although it may take many battles, Gau has
the potential to be a very powerful force... so don't let his lack
of equipable weapons turn you away!


Setzer Gabbiani: Gambler
(Setzar)

PROFILE    Age:27  Height:5'9"  Weight:136 lbs.
SKILLS     Power:32  Quickness:32  Magic:28  Strength:31
EQUIPMENT  Cards, Dice, Helmet, Armor

SPECIAL SKILL: Slot - Slot machine gives varying prizes
               GP Rain - Toss money at enemy

A carefree Gambler on the outside, Setzer is hiding a tragic
past. The loss of his soulmate, Darryl, haunts his now wealthy
lifestyle. He's a rich adventurer and risk-taker. The flip of a coin
can make his most important decisions, but eventually he
must rely on luck to survive the chance encounters of life. Setzer's 
main contribution to the cause is his Airship, but his fighting skills
and special Slot attack prove valuable, too. The outcome may lead
to victory, but can also prove to be deadly! With the right relic
he can use the party's great wealth to smother the enemies in a
shower of coins.


Strago Magus: Ancient Lore Master
(Straggus)

PROFILE    Age:70  Height:4'11"  Weight:94 lbs.
SKILLS     Power:9  Quickness:9  Magic:31  Strength:9
EQUIPMENT  Rod, Hat, Stuffed Toy, Lore

SPECIAL SKILL: Lore - Use magic learned in battle

Descended from the Mage Warriors of legend, the villagers of
Thamasa all have magical abilities, but Strago is the most powerful
of them. His days are spent taking care of his apparent grandaughter, 
Relm, while he toils away remembering his brave past. There is one 
creature he was never able to defeat that lingers on his mind. 
He can learn the spells of enemies and use them, but he must first 
feel and survive their effects in battle. He plays like a Blue 
Wizard and his magic skills will grow throughout the adventure.


Relm Arrowny: Artist

PROFILE    Age:10  Height:5'  Weight:88 lbs.
SKILLS     Power:10  Quickness:13  Magic:34  Strength:11
EQUIPMENT  Paint Brush, Rod, Hat, Stuffed Toy

SPECIAL SKILL: Sketch - Sketch duplicate of enemy that attacks
               Control - Control the actions of an enemy

In the town of Thamasa also resides a young girl with unique
powers but no figures to call mother and father. Strago's 
granddaughter Relm practices an unusual brand of magic. Don't 
be fooled by her innocent appearance; armed with brush and 
canvas, she is a force to be reckoned with. She sketches
enemies and uses their skills, which can then be turned against
them. With a certain Relic that has long been lost she can control
the actions of the monsters themselves and make them do her bidding.
She also befriends Interceptor and the bond between girl and dog 
leads to a dramatic rescue in a burning house. And, for the record,
she is not fooey. ;) 


Mog: Moogle

PROFILE    Age:11  Height:4'  Weight:94 lbs.
SKILLS     Power:12  Quickness:14  Magic:33 Strength:12
EQUIPMENT  Spear, Hat, Light Armor

SPECIAL SKILL: Dance - Scenic attacks with elements and animals

Most Moogles lead peaceful lives, but now that the Empire threa-
tens all the land, Mog and his brothers know they must help. As
the only Moogle with the ability to speak (due to a great intelect),
he becomes a special segment of your party. When Mog joins your 
party midway in the game (depending on your actions), he must still
learn many of his powerful dancing attacks, which is easier said
than done! He may also bring along a gargantuan friend.


Umaro: Yeti
(Uumaro)

PROFILE    Age:4  Height:6'10"  Weight:436 lbs.
SKILLS     Power:44  Quickness:21  Magic:5  Strength:46
EQUIPMENT  Bone Club, Snow Muffler

SPECIAL SKILL: Rage - Body slam or torpedo enemies
               Blizzard - Cold breath attack

Hidden within the caves of Narshe roams a wild Yeti of fable.
Although he can't use magic, Umaro is the fiercest physical fighter
in the game. He can't be equipped with armor or wepaons, save his 
weapon of choice, the Bone Club. A wild beast, he cannot be 
controlled in battle, but will always fight with you (literally).
With the Rage Ring he can fling party members at the enemy for 
massive damage, and the ellusive Blizzard Orb gives him very cold
breath. Be wary, though: his unique brand of beat-em-up may cost
you should the other members of your party become wounded.


Gogo: Mimic

PROFILE    Age:Unknown  Height:5'5"  Weight:132 lbs.
SKILLS     Power:9  Quickness:14  Magic:26  Strength:10
EQUIPMENT  Dagger or Rod, Robe, Light Armor

SPECIAL SKILL: Mimic - Copy last party action
               Can use most other menu commands as well

'It' has remained hidden for centuries, waiting for the chance
to emerge. Gogo, an ellusive mimic, resides in a strange
place on Triangle Island, but you'll have to search in
an unusual fashion to find him. Able to combine and use the
special techniques of all other allies, 'it' can be made
effectively into a one-man fighting team. This Gogo is apparently
not related to the one you fight in Final Fantasy 5, despite the
obvious resemblance between them. The true identity of this 
character remains a mystery, despite speculation as to his (or 
her) origin. Is 'it' even human? We may never know...


SUPPORTING CHARACTERS (NPCs)

Vicks and Wedge
Special skill: MagiTek - Fight with MagiTek armor

MagiTekArmor wearing Imperial soldiers sent out with Terra to
find the frozen Esper. The two soldiers can use the armor they
are wearing to send out powerful beams to destory their enemies.
These beams include a fire beam, an ice beam, and a bolt beam.
They also have the ability to heal using Heal Force. These
two characters are used only in the first few battles in Narshe,
after which point they die at the 'hands' of the frozen Esper.
It should be noted that Vicks is a mistranslation of Biggs. Biggs
and Wedge were Rebel pilots in Star Wars, with Wedge Antilles 
being the leader of the ever popular Rogue (Wraith) Squadron.
	

The Moogles
Special skill: None

>From the caves of Narshe comes the unusual face of help.
A bunch of little cute white puff balls. :) They help Locke
protect Terra from the Imperial soldiers. The Moogles
even have names: Kupek, Kupop, Kumama, Kuku, Kutan, Kupan,
Kushu, Kurin, Kuru, and Kamog. They all use various different
weapons to attack, and are very powerful for their diminutive
size and deceiving looks. Moogles first made their appearence
in one of the Gameboy Seiken Densetsu games, and have appeared
in every Final Fantasy game since FF5. They are most prominent
here in FF6 and also in the mega-popular game Seiken Densestu 2,
otherwise known in America as Secret of Mana.


Banon 
Special skill: Health - Cure the party

The wise leader of the Returners, Banon's skill allows him to heal
everyone in the party. He will play a crucial role in convincing
Terra to join the Returners for good, and will prove a strategic
edge over the Empire. He is controllable on the raft ride after
the invasion of the Returner's hideout, where he must be protected
at all costs. Notice that he bears a striking resemblance to Sabin's
teacher and mentor... but that's probably just Square saving memory 
on sprites. ^_^


Ghost
Special skill: Possess - Instant kill for enemy and ghost

A lost soul on its way to the other side. The ghost has the ability
to possess a monster. If it's successful both the monster and the
ghost will disappear. Ghosts will join your party until they possess
a monster, or until they decide to leave. They are prominent in the
Ghost Train, but beware the ghosts that are not friendly!


General Leo: Imperial Warrior
PROFILE    Age: 29  Height: 6'1"  Weight:155 lbs.
SKILLS     Power:38  Quickness:32  Magic:Unknown  Strength:33
EQUIPMENT  Crystal Sword, Aegis Shield, Heavy Armor, Offering
Special skill: Shock - Hit all enemies with burst attack

An Imperial general who sees what the Empire has been doing is
wrong and decides to do something about it. Alone, he confronts
the Empire with sword in hand. Leo's shock attack does massive
damage on his oppenent. A very skilled and powerful fighter with
a lethal blade that can be used four times in a round (he has an 
Offering relic). He is a very fun character, but please, PLEASE
respect the fact that you only normally get to use him for one
specific battle.


---------------------------------------------------------------
                     PART ONE-FF3 Walkthrough
---------------------------------------------------------------
By King Kung

I chose to write a direct walkthrough, though it is still divided 
into sections for quick reference. Basically, a really lazy person 
can just follow this guide through the entire game, though that 
wouldn't be very much fun. Use this at your own risk, as spoilers 
will undoubtedly be abundant. In fact, you should probably save this 
as a last-ditch rescue kit or for when you have completed the game.

                 ***THE WORLD OF BALANCE WALKTHROUGH***

(1)  The Story Begins
        
    As Terra, Vicks, and Wedge, head north through Narshe. You 
will fight guards along the way, which are easily defeated by 
the Fire Beam or in groups with Terra's BioBlaster. If you get 
severely injured, use the Heal Force, Tonic, or Terra's Cure spell. 
Remember to save at the first opportunity, because you don't want to 
repeat the intro again should an upcoming battle leave you defeated. 
You will fight your first boss: the Whelk. During the battle, 
remember not to use the Bolt Beam (he fights back if you do), and to 
avoid hitting the shell. Have Terra use TekMissels, while the other 
two shoot the Fire Beam. When the creature goes back into its shell, 
use the Heal Force to get back HP, or wait until he reappears. 
Continue until it dies. The frozen Esper will kill Wedge and Vicks, then 
knock Terra unconscious. When you wake up, explore the house's clock, 
as it holds a valuable Elixir, then head out the back door. There's 
only one way through the cave, so follow it. Be sure to save your game 
and open up the treasure chests (or save them for later in the game). 
Eventually the guards will corner you, and you'll fall through the 
floor. Enjoy the little cinema scene flasback to Terra's past.
    Locke will make his entrance. He'll come to Terra's rescue, with 
the help of those ever cute Moogles. In the group battle, switch to 
the group that has Mog in it (no, he doesn't join you right now). When 
he learns his first dance, use it to waste the other enemies (including 
the Marshall at the end). Before killing the Marshall, unequip Mog so 
that Edgar can use his weapons later. Upon completion, Locke will bring 
Terra out of the cave, and through a secret passage that will be 
important later. From there, leave the town and save your game, or 
explore the Beginner's Guild to learn the basic functions of the game. 
Head straight for Figaro Castle (it's to the south in a desert). Upon 
arrival, be sure to visit the item and tool shops. There you should buy 
plenty of Tonic and the second two tools for Edgar. Talk to Edgar and 
explore the castle. An old guy will tell you about Edgar's brother, 
Sabin. After the cinema scene, return to the throne room and talk to 
Edgar. After the brief actions, follow Locke to a bedroom (nothing 
happens there you sicko!) When Kefka storms the castle, you'll escape 
on Chocobos. Fight the M-Tek Armors that Kefka sends at you, using 
Edgar's AutoCrossbow and Terra's Fire spell. Cinema time.
    Ride to Figaro Cave (to the southeast), and save your game. Enter 
the cave and be sure that you visit the recovery spring (with the 
turtle in it). Don't worry about the passage on the other side, you'll 
reach that later. Continue through a doorway, and head to your left. 
Decide whether you want to collect the treasures here or save them for 
later. If so, go upstairs and open the treasure chest. Head back down, 
then to your right, and down. Pick up the treasure chest in the alcove 
to your right. Before going up those stairs, go to your left and find 
the treasure chest. Then go back to the stairs, go up, head downwards, 
and go down another set of stairs. Exit the cave.
    Head southeast to South Figaro. Save your game outside, then enter. 
Go meet Shadow (you'll meet again after the river ride), then explore 
the town. There are treasures in almost every barrel and crate. Don't 
miss the one behind the Chocobo stable, and in the barrel on the 
walkway above it. Next, go into the big house at the north of the town 
(this is the rich man's house). In the room that's drafty, walk behind 
the bookshelf and down some hidden stairs. Head down the next flight. 
In the hallway, walk to the right, then, when it goes down, walk through 
the wall, then to your right down a hidden flight of stairs for some 
nice relics. Continue exploring the rest of the hallway for a truckload 
of money, then go back to the entry hallway of the rich man's house. 
Go through the right door (not the one you came in from), and exp-
lore the barrels there. Walk behind the house to find a hidden 
passage, and explore that room for some goodies. There's a hidden door 
at the very bottom of the room. It takes you to the old cider guy's 
house (remember that he wants cider for later). Exit there, then go to 
the item, armor, and weapon shops. Buy all the equipment you need (you 
should have enough money), then leave the town. If you wish, you may 
rent a Chocobo and take it to Sabin's Cottage (north of S. Figaro), 
which is suggested if you want some drama.
    Head for Mt. Kolts (to the east). You should build your members up 
2 or 3 levels outside, then use a tent, save, and enter. The enemies 
here are pretty strong, so, when you get the opportunity, use a tent 
and save. At the entrance, go behind the large rock and outside for 
some treasure. Go back, then head up. Check the right wall for another 
passage that leads to a VERY usefull Atlas Armlet. Follow the pathway 
(it's very linear), save your game at the designated spot, then 
continue until you reach Vargas. Defeat his bears, then attack 
him while Terra heals the party. After a while, Sabin will jump in, 
and the others will be blown away by one of Vargas' techniques. Fight 
Vargas with the Fight command (or you can perform a Blitz immediatley). 
When it tells you to do the Blitz, do so (duh). If you're having some 
trouble, see the closing remarks of this section for the easiest way 
to perform the Pummel Blitz. When you beat him, head out of the cave, 
grabbing the treasure chest on your way.  
    Once outside, head north to the Returner Hideout. Explore it 
with Terra (make sure to get the treasures in the top room and its 
right wall for a White Cape) and see the closing remarks before you 
talk to Banon outside. Whether you accept his offer right away or wait 
has some significane in the item you receive. Locke will leave the 
party, and then you'll be in a group with Banon, Terra, Edgar, and 
Sabin. Go back into the hideout to buy some items and stop at the 
inn. Then head out on the river. It doesn't really matter what ways 
you choose to go (although if you choose right at the first 
intersection, you'll fight more enemies, and if you keep going to 
the left at the second, it'll be a USEFUL neverending loop). Make sure 
that you have Banon use Heal during battles, that he's in the back row, 
and that you save your game at every opportunity. Eventually you'll 
reach Ultros. Have Terra use Fire, but beware: Ultros will blind you 
if she does. Make Banon use Heal every time he attacks, while Sabin 
uses the Aura Bolt Blitz and Edgar fights or uses AutoCrossbow. 
You'll beat him, then Sabin will fall off the raft. 

        Here are some tips and tactics that you may want to use: 
1)  In order for the Pummel Blitz to work, select Blitz from 
the menu, then press left, release it, press right, release it, 
left and 'A'. Make sure that this is done within 1 and a half   
seconds. 

2)  Make sure that you buy the NoiseBlaster and Bio Blaster.
Edgar already has the AutoCrossbow in his inventory.

3)  You will need plenty of Tonic, Potion, and Fenix Down. Tents
are also important, but you will usually find them. The others 
can be found if you search in the Returner Hideout and South 
Figaro. 

4)  If you can't afford a lot of weapons and armor, at least buy
the best possible stuff for Terra, as she's weak in the beginning. 

5)  When Banon asks Terra to help the Returners, you will receive a 
Gauntlet for a 'Yes' reply. However, if you choose 'No,' go back 
inside and to the top-most room. The person there will give you a 
Genji Glove, which, in my view, is much more valuable. 

6)  When you are controlling Terra alone in the Returner's Hideout, 
walk up to the very top of the table (where the meeting will take 
place later). Press A and you will find a piece of paper. If you 
throw it away, nothing different will happen. However, if you leave 
it there, Banon will throw it away during the meeting. This is a 
poorly translated piece of humor from the Japanese FF6. Also, search 
the injured guy's room berore the Lete River for some fun.

7)  Before beginning the raft ride on the Lete River, move Banon
to the back row of your party. This will reduce the damage he 
takes. Remember, if he dies, the game ends! 

                       ------------------------- 

(2)  A Fork in the Road 
        
    Here the story has split into 3 groups. Mog appears and asks 
you to choose a scenario (Kupo!). You should save your game here 
so that you can come back if you make a mistake. I suggest going 
on Locke's first, then Sabin's, and finally Terra's. 

Locke's Scenario 
----------------        
    Locke's scenario can be difficult if you don't listen to the 
clues given by the townspeople. You must first go to the old man's 
house and talk to the boy downstairs. Then go to the item shop and 
talk to the man in the corner. You'll fight him. Steal from him for 
a nice Plumed Hat, and his clothes! Equip the Plumed Hat, and go 
back to the boy in the old man's house. He will let you through now. 
Explore the town for some tips, but DON'T talk to soldiers in Magitek 
Armor. If you wish, talk to a Green Soldier and steal his clothes, 
then talk to the people in the town for more info. The soldier outfit 
also lets you talk to other soldiers without being attacked. Remember 
the Cider delivery man? Go there and fight him. Steel from him for 
another Plumed Hat and his clothes. You'll also take his Cider. Bring 
this back to the old man, then go to the boy who's downstairs. The 
password is 'courage.' Anything else gets you beaten up! Take the 
hidden passage to the rich man's house, then go upstairs. In the 
windy room, go behind the bookshelf and follow the passage too the 
room where Celes is. What outfit you wear to meet her will give you 
various funny Star Wars references. ;) Save her, then take the guard's 
clock key. Go to the clock that isn't ticking and wind it for a secret 
passage. Enter and head right, then down, right, up, right, down, and 
left to a few treasure chests. Take the contents and equip them. Go 
back to the entrance and search along the walls for a hidden passage. 
Go south in the passage to some more treasure, then, about half way 
back in this passage, push to the left for another passage. Go 
downstairs and take the valuable items from the chests (don't miss the 
Ribbon, which is behind the north chest!). Return upstairs to the 
entrance, then take the other passage south. Go left for some treasure, 
then head right to find the exit.
    Leave S. Figaro and go to Figaro Cave. Make your way through until 
the TunnelArm comes. Defeat it by having Celes use Runic while Locke 
fights. 

Sabin's Scenario 
----------------        
    This is the longest (and hardest) of the three scenarios. Start by 
visiting the cottage with the crazy old man. Although it is your choice 
to enlist Shadow or not, you should take him along. If you do, buy at 
least 30 - 50 Shurikens from the traveling merchant. Search the Imperial 
Camp for treasures. When you find a locked treasure chest, hit it 
instead of kicking it, or you'll be attacked. After fighting Kefka once, 
head left and up behind a tent for entry to a hidden tent. When Cyan has 
to fight, use the Dispatch SwdTech command (number 1). When you win the 
Black Belt, equip it on somebody (preferably Shadow or Sabin).
    You can't enter Doma Castle after it's taken over, so head straight 
for the Baren Falls. In the spooky forest, follow the path fighting 
monsters as you go. Make sure to walk up to the pond to be fully healed. 
There will be a strange train which you should enter and then try to 
leave. On the Phantom Train, head right at the start to save your game 
and meet the Impresario. Head to the left, collecting treasures. Let the 
ghost guy join you, and have him Possess an enemy. There are several easy 
puzzles here which involve flipping switches. There is also a treasure 
chest that instigates a fight with Sigfried/Zigfried/Segfried, but you 
can't aquire the item that he takes from you. Some of the ghosts will 
provide items for you to buy, while some will attack. Keep heading left 
to the engine room. Examine the console on the left for instructions on 
stopping the train. You will end up having to fight it. Use Cyan's 
Dispatch, Sabin's Suplex (which strangely works against a TRAIN...), and 
have Shadow throw the Shuriken. There will be some interesting scenes 
involving Cyan. When they are done, exit the station.
    Follow the only direction to reach Baren Falls. At the waterfall, opt 
to jump off. At the bottom of Baren Falls, you'll meet Gau. Head to 
Mobliz and buy some goods there. Make sure to buy some Dried Meat also. 
Fight in a battle in the Veldt and, when Gau appears, use the Dried 
Meat on him. Here's the appearance of the coolest imp, Kappa!
    Head with Gau to the Crescent Cave, and explore for a few laughs. 
Eventually you'll find the diving helmet. Use it to go into the Serpent 
Trench. When you have to decide which way to go, choosing two rights 
takes you to both caves, while two lefts takes you straight to Nikeah. 
You're better off visiting the caves, as the second one has a valuable 
Green Beret. Once you arrive at Nikeah, buy some goods, then take the 
ship to South Figaro. 
 
Terra's Scenario 
----------------
    This is the easiest of the scenarios. If you can't figure this 
one out, you really need a mental examination! All that you must do is 
enter the secret passage from the beginning of the game in Narshe. 
Follow the familiar path back to the house where Terra woke up. Just 
remember to say hello to the Moogles for fun. KUPO!!! 

                        ------------------------- 

(3)  Reunited 

    Finally together, the group doesn't have much time to think. 
Kefka and a squad of soldiers are on their way to claim the frozen 
Esper and kill Banon! Although some of the group's members are 
negative toward each other, they decide that they must stop the 
Empire at all costs. A decisive battle is about to take place. 
    The fights shouldn't be difficult IF you use the correct attacks. 
Edgar should constantly use the Bio Blaster, as this can destroy an 
entire enemy group. Have Cyan use the Quadra Slam, while Celes and Terra 
fight and cure with magic. If you still are having trouble, don't worry 
about losing. Instead, keep fighting with Sabin's group until he learns 
the Fire Dance, then use that to waste the enemies. Battle Kefka with a 
combination of magic users and fighters. After the battle, the group 
goes to the Esper, where Terra morphs for the first time. Unfortunately, 
she goes ballistic and flies off to the west. 

                        ------------------------- 

(4)  The Search for Terra 
        
    After Terra flys away you'll be in Narshe. Buy and equip some 
weapons, armor, and relics, but, if Sabin or Edgar is in your party, 
don't buy items. Search the town for a room filled with treasures, 
and remember about the locked treasure chest. You should go to Figaro 
Castle. There, buy tools and items. If Sabin or Edgar are at the front 
of your party, you get them for half price! Explore and sleep at the inn 
to see a few important cinema scenes (though you can do this later also). 
Submerge the castle from the engine room to travel across the mountain 
range.
    Head for Kohlingen. If Locke is in your party, you'll see a few 
cinema scenes. If you only have 3 people with you and 3000 GP, then you 
can enlist Shadow for a little while. If you're not in a hurry, head 
north to the small house where the Coliseum will be in the World of 
Ruin. Search the house for a valuable Hero Ring. Head south to Jidoor, 
where you should search the town. Then head north to Zozo. You may want 
to gain a few levels before you enter. Upon entering, head as far left 
as you can, and find the building with the stopped clock. If you talk to 
the inhabitants of the town and know that they mostly all lie, you can 
figure out the correct time to enter. If you're lazy and want it spoiled 
for you, set it for 6:10:50, and you'll find a passage to the valuable 
Chainsaw. Head down to the large tower, where you should proceed to 
climb it. Make sure to find every treasure chest along the way, as one 
holds the Thief Glove, which makes Locke use Control, allowing him to 
fight and steal in one turn. When you think you can't go any farther, 
try jumping between buildings. Continue up the tower until you fight 
Dadaluma. Use your strongest attacks on him, as well as Potions and 
Cure spells to recover your HP. When he calls reinforcements, ignore 
them and concentrate on him. Head upstairs to the topmost room, and 
look around for a few treasures, then go up to find Terra and Ramuh. 
                        
                        -------------------------

(5)  The Opera House
        
    After finding Terra, you must pick 2 people to go with Celes and 
Locke. Depending on your actions, Cyan may stay with Terra. If you 
haven't already gotten Shadow, DO NOT go back to put him in your 
party! If you do, he'll leave during the Opera, and you'll be stuck 
with 3 fighters untill after the Magitek Factory! Go back to Jidoor, 
and talk to everyone in the town. Then go to Owzer's house (the one 
farthest north), and talk to the Impresario. Read the letter and talk 
to the man, then head for the Opera House (it's south of Jidoor). When 
you arrive, enjoy the cinema scene, then go with Locke to the dressing 
room. When performing the opera, press A immediately on the first 
choice. For the second, press down, then A. On the third, press 
A. Go upstairs, and walk over to Draco. Follow him, and when he stops, 
press A as if to talk with him. Pick up the flowers, then go upstairs. 
Half way up, you'll stop. Press to the right, then continue up. Walk to 
the balcony, and enjoy! If you don't do this quickly, you will fail and 
have to do the entire thing over again. With Locke, pick up the note in 
the room, and talk to the Impresario. Equip the Sprint Shoes (if you 
don't have them on), and go up and right on the balcony. Talk to the 
man, then pull the far right switch. Go back to where you were sitting 
and head to the left, then up. When you're above the stage, try to 
avoid as many rats as possible. If you have to fight them, kill the 
yellow ones first, because they can call reinforcements. When you reach 
Ultros, you'll fall onto the stage, then fight him. Use your strongest 
moves, and he'll eventually leave. Setzer will come up. Watch the scene, 
and prepare for the trek through the Empire. Now wasn't that fun?
                       
                       -------------------------

(6)  Magitek Factory
        
    When you reach Albrook, buy some new weapons, armor, and relics 
(the best available), then gain a few levels outside. Use the Espers 
to learn some magic spells, especially Cure1. You may want to go to 
Tzen and Maranda to find more weapons and info, but you don't need 
to. Head northwest from Albrook to Vector (it's the big castle). DON'T 
sleep at the inn. You will be swindled by a thief. Instead, go over to 
the small building and refuse to pledge your allegiance to the Empire. 
Fight the guards, and the man will heal you. Buy weapons (if you haven't 
already done so), dodge the soldiers in the north of town, and enter the 
buildings. When you think you're ready, go to the right and talk to 
the man behind the boxes. Climb onto the box, and shimmy over the guards 
while they attend to the sick man to get into the factory. Make sure 
Celes has a sword, because you will want to use Runic here. Explore the 
first room thoroughly, you should find 2 or 3 treasures. Climb into the 
left pipe, and go downstairs. Remember, there are a lot of treasures 
here. Try pressing against the far southern walls, and you will find 
doors leading to a few treasures. Equip all of the Flame and Thunder 
equipment that you find, and look for Kefka. Jump off where Kefka threw 
the two creatures. Make sure that you are fully healed at this point. 
Talk to the left creature and you will enter a fight. For Ifrit, use 
strong Ice attacks, and use Fire attacks on Shiva. They'll turn into 
Magicite. Go through the left door, use a tent, and save your game 
(by the way, have Locke steal from the soldiers around here to get 
tents). Go back through the door, and go into the right one this time. 
Go all the way up the stairs, fighting enemies on the way. Search the 
room with several Esper Processing Chambers for the Break Blade. It is 
hidden out of view. Go throug the next doorway to fight #024. It is 
difficult to hurt him with magic (he changes what he is weak against 
when he glows), so use primarily fighting attacks. Sabin's Aura Bolt and 
Cyan's Dispatch techniques work best if they are in your party. Go up 
through the door and talk to Cid. Watch the cinema scene, then follow 
Cid. Use a tent and save your game before you talk to Cid again. In the 
mine cart ride use strong fighting techniques plus Ice and Fire spells 
on the Mag Roaders. When you fight #128, attack the body, not the arms, 
with strong Ice and Thunder attacks. Save your game when you are outside, 
and talk to Setzer. Once back on the airship, you will have to fight 
some Cranes. Use strong magic (you might want to Scan to see what they're 
weak against), and Setzer's Slot. If the Slot lands on 3 diamonds, you'll 
probably win the fight easily.
                       
                       -------------------------

(7)  To the Sealed Gate
        
    You get to control the airship here. Fly to Narshe. Remember the 
locked treasure chest? Go to that house and follow Lone Wolf to where 
the Esper is (at the cliff). He will grab a Moogle to use as a hostage. 
When he tells you not to step forward, stand still. Mog wrestles free, 
but both will almost fall of the cliff. You only have time to save one. 
If you save Mog, he joins your party (kupo)! If you save Lone Wolf, you 
get a Gold Hairpin, which cuts in half the magic needed for the wearer 
to cast spells. I STRONGLY suggest taking Mog. You may want to fight 
with him in forests, plains, and other backgrounds until he learns his 
dances. See the "A Few Tips and Secrets" section for info on getting 
the Water Rondo dance.
    When you're ready, fly to the Imperial Base. Nobody will be there. 
Don't bother searching the building as everything inside is locked up 
right now. Exit on the right side. Save here before you do anything else. 
Go across the bridge and to the cave. You'll find a valuable treasure at 
the beginning, so take it. When you reach the room with moving bridges, 
make your way to the treasure chest on the little island. It holds the 
Coin Toss, which lets Setzer kill the enemy with money. Follow the route, 
and, when you pull a switch that makes you hear a distant sound, 
backtrack to reach a treasure chest. After fighting a Ninja (when you 
pull a switch), head right and down, then hold A and walk around on 
the bluff. You'll find many hidden treasures here; apparently they are 
the 'prize under the staircase' that he is talking about. When you reach 
the area with 2 switches on the floor, DON'T step on either of them. 
Instead, pass the first one, then go up the right bridge. Pull the 
switch in the chest, and go downstairs, then down again. Go to your left 
to the little raised piece of ground, and step on the switch. It will 
open a cave with the VERY valuable Atma Weapon in it. Equip it on Terra 
only if she has a rather high HP count at this point. Keep going to the 
right, until you eventually reach the Sealed Gate. Hit Kefka once, and 
enjoy the show! When it's over, exit the cave through the new passage 
that is created. You should be able to easily reach the airship. 
                        
                       -------------------------

(8)  Search for the Espers
        
    The airship crashes. Go and talk to the people in Maranda. They 
have new things to say. Head to Vector, and go up to the castle. 
You'll talk to Gesthal and Cid. Before the banquet begins, you will 
be sent on a small mission. Talk to as many soldiers as possible. You 
may have to fight some. DON'T talk to Kefka, as he takes away from your 
time to talk to soldiers. When you have talked to 24 soldiers, wait out 
the timer. During the banquet, be as courteous and polite as possible 
when talking. Refer to the Miscellaneous Info section for what should 
be said during the conference. Go to the Imperial Base if the door was 
opened as there are a few goodies to find there now. If you want to see 
a special cinema scene at this point, head back to the airship and talk 
to Setzer. When you're ready to move on, go to Albrook. Go to the ship 
and enjoy the cinema scene where Celes is reunited with the group. 
Afterwards, sleep at the inn for free for yet another cinema scene. Go 
back to the ship, and you'll set sail. When you reach Crescent Island, 
head north to Thamasa. Press A next to the barrels and boxes for some 
prizes, and by new weapons and armor. Some of the relics are also useful. 
Explore until you find Strago and Relm in one of the houses. Sleep at 
the inn and when you awake go to the burning house. Enter with Strago. 
If you have it, equip Strago with the Ice Rod, and use Ice and the 
Aqua Rake spells on your enemies. Try to avoid the fireballs, and 
eventually you'll reach a big fireball. Defeat him with Ice2 and Aqua 
Rake. Shadow will save the day when all looks bleak. After finishing, 
see if there's any equipment you couldn't afford before at the shops, 
then head for the Crescent Cave. Save outside and go up a few levels. 
Take the treasure chest immediately to your left at the entrance, then 
head up and right, through the door. When you're outside, work your way 
to the left, and into another cave. Pick up any treasure, and you'll 
eventually reach the 3 Golden Statues. Along comes that pesky octopus 
again. When fighting Ultros, use the strongest fire attacks possible, 
and, when Relm joins you, have her sketch Ultros. You'll win (for now), 
and head out the left door. Save when you have the chance, and, when 
you see 3 tiles on the ground, step on the upper-left one. Go out the 
door and collect the treasure, then go back inside and upstairs. Fall 
through the upper-right one, and continue until there's a cinema scene. 
When in Thamasa, watch the action. Kefka will do some evil, and when you 
wake up, you will be General Leo. Don't try exiting Thamasa at all as 
you cannot defeat the Guardians stationed at the outskirts. Fight Kefka 
with General Leo; it should be easy. Unfortunately, Leo is killed by 
Kefka. You will watch the sad burial. Board the airship when the party 
comes, and watch the cinema scene. 

                        ------------------------

(9)  The Floating Continent
        
    After Thamasa, fly to Doma Castle (if it was freed), and, if you 
wish, South Figaro. Gain several levels (you'll need to for the 
upcoming battles), and save somewhere. Board the airship, and choose 
to look for the Floating Continent. You'll battle the IAF, which 
consists of several battalions of enemies. This can be pretty tough if 
you haven't advance your levels, so be sure to cure between battles. 
Eventually you'll face off with Ultros and his friend, Chupon. Use fire 
attacks on Ultros, and all of your strong ice and special attacks on 
Chupon. Chupon will eventually sneeze you away, and you'll fall. You'll 
fight a machine on your way down! Concentrate on the body itself, and 
destroy the little machines it releases that absorb magic. You have to 
hurry, because when the countdown ends, you'll be fried!
	You'll end up on the Floating Continent. Talk to Shadow and he'll 
join your group. Make sure to save your game so that you don't have to 
face the IAF again. The battles here are tough, so you should have Shadow 
throw Shurikens and Ninja Stars, as well as different Skeans. When you 
think you've reached a dead end, try pressing against the wall. 
Basically, you should make your way to the right, collecting the blue 
orbs (treasure chests). Don't miss the Masamune, or any other treasures. 
When you find a save place (haven't seen one of those for a while), use 
a tent and save. Soon you'll have the option to go back to the airship or 
continue onwards. You really should keep going unless you are short on 
supplies or have unfinished business, in which case leave now or forever 
hold your peace. Fight the Atma Monster using very strong ice spells, 
and all of your best attacks. Cure2 is imperative to your survival, so 
make sure somebody has learned it by now. You should be victorious if 
you pound away. When you win, head up and enjoy the long cinema scene. 
Shadow will trap Kefka between the statues, and a timer will come up. 
Hurry to your right. If you have the Charm Bangle, equip it now. There 
may be some blue orbs, but don't bother trying to get them now. When
you defeat the enemy at the glowing star, continue going right. At the 
edge it asks if you want to jump to the airship or wait; your decision 
here is very important. Choose wait, move back a step, and step forward. 
Now choose to wait for Shadow. If you don't, you can't get him later!!! 
At about 5 seconds left, Shadow will come, and you'll escape. Enjoy the 
splendor of the end of the world!
 
                        ------------------------

(10)  What You Should Have Done By Now
        
    By now you should have found the 12 normal characters. You will 
have 11 if you didn't save Mog. If you neglected Mog, you'll have to 
wait for another chance to find him. By now your characters should be 
at least at level 25, that being the minimum. Sabin should have learned 
the Fire Dance (maybe the next one also), and Cyan should know the 
Quadra Slam. Make sure that you found the Atma Weapon before this point, 
or you won't be able to get it. You could live without this weapon, 
but it eventually becomes one of the best weapons in the game.                      

                        ------------------------
 
(11)  A Few Tips and Secrets
        
    If you want to gain levels quickly, then you should stay 
near the beginning of the Floating Continent. The enemies here 
can be defeated, and they give you a lot of experience. If it's 
magic you want, go to the Triangle Island (upper left corner of 
map). Defeat the invisible Intangir by casting Doom, but beware: 
it will cast a powerful spell on the person who kills it. Have 
your party above 1000 HP each. Alternately, use the loop on the 
Lete River that is listed in the misc. section of this FAQ.
    If you think that the Atma Weapon is faulty or doesn't work, 
that's because it gains power as you gain HP. The more HP you 
have, the stronger it is. Remember, if you're low on HP, it will 
hardly do anything. 
    Terra's Morph will last longer at higher levels, and if you 
go many battles without using it.
    Many people wonder how to get two of Mog's dances; the Water 
Rondo and the Snowman Jazz. The Snowman Jazz can be found in 
the World of Ruin only, but the Water Rondo MUST be learned in 
the World of Balance. The W. Rondo is, in fact, Mog's strongest 
dance. To acquire it, form a group with Mog in it. Land the 
airship at Nikeah, and rent a Chocobo. Ride it all the way to 
Baren Falls, and hop off. Jump the falls, and go all the way to 
the Serpent Trench, and jump in. Fight a water enemy without 
dancing and you'll learn the Water Rondo! You'll end up in Ni-
keah, right next to your airship! An alternate, longer route is 
to take the raft down the Lete River with Mog. The Serpent Tre-
nch is much faster, though.
    To save Shadow on the Floating Continent, during the destr-
uction, wait instead of jumping onto the ship. Step forward, 
then choose to wait for Shadow. If you stand there until only 
5 seconds are left, he'll come and you'll leave together.
    In Mobliz, it is possible to get a valuable Tintinabar. Talk 
to the injured soldier, and read the letter on the desk. Go to 
the house in the center of town and send something in the mail. 
After going back and forth and spending a lot of money on mail, 
the soldier will give you a Tintinabar!
    Many of the treasure chests in the WOB can be found in the 
WOR (as long as the level they were in is still accessible). If 
you leave treasure chests, then open them in the WOR, they will 
contain better items! This holds true particullarly for treasures
in the Narshe Caves and the Magitek Factory...


                  ***THE WORLD OF RUIN WALKTHROUGH***


(1)  Stranded on a Deserted Island
        
        This is a very short part of the story, but can also be very 
dramatic. You will be alone as Celes. Cid is your only companion, and 
he is becoming ill from a year of being stranded. To pick up fish for 
Cid, go to the beach south of the house and press A next to a fish. 
Remember: the faster the fish, the healthier it is. There are 4 types 
of fish: Rotten Fish, Fish, Just a Fish, and Yummy Fish. Each one can 
be seen in the Rare items list. If you feed Cid 10 Yummy Fish (the very 
fast moving ones), he'll live! If you take to long to catch the fish, 
or if you feed him Rotten Fish, Cid will die, and Celes will almost 
commit suicide. Either way, you will set sail using a raft that Cid made. 
Remember where the Solitary Island is for later in the game.
                       
                        ------------------------

(2)  Search for The Others
        
    You will arrive on a new body of land. Head north to Albrook and 
talk to the people to learn of the World of Ruin. You'll hear about 
several key story elements: the 8 dragons, Phunbaba, and Doom Gaze, 
as well as Kefka's reign of terror. Buy new equipment (you'll need it) 
and sleep at the inn. When you leave town, head north past Kefka's 
Tower and through a desert. Eventually you'll reach Tzen. Save outside, 
and when you enter, a disaster hits. Go the inn for HP and MP if you must, 
then go up to Sabin. Enter the house, taking the treasures, and head to 
the left. Go downstairs, and up to the long landing. The child should be 
above the fireplace. Take it outside, and Sabin will join you. Buy 
equipment for him if you must, then save outside.
    Go northwest and find a small forest. In the middle, rent a Chocobo 
and go south. Go east across a bridge and follow the green trail that 
was once the Serpent Trench to Mobliz. It has been pretty much destroyed. 
Sleep at the house you find and talk to Terra. You'll fight Phunbaba, who 
can be stopped by strong ice spells, the poison and bio spells, and the 
Suplex Blitz. Terra won't join you yet, but you can't give up now. 
                        
                        ------------------------

(3)  Edgar!
        
    After the fight with Phunbaba, head south to a forest where you can 
rent a Chocobo. Follow the Serpent Trench past the Fanatics' Tower and 
to the town of Nikeah. Talk to the thieves at the inn, and, when they 
leave, go outside and talk to Gerard (he looks like Edgar). Follow 
Gerard into the ship, and, at South Figaro, locate him at the inn. Buy 
new weapons, armor, relics, and items at the town, then leave. 
    Go to Figaro Cave to the northeast. Follow Gerard, the thieves, and 
the Sigfried impostor to the Recovery Spring. Remember that opening on 
the other side? Jump on the turtle and enter it. It leads to Figaro 
Castle. If you search the cave, you may find Sigfried, but he runs away. 
Go to the engine room and down the stairs that you couldn't enter before. 
Collect the treasures, and find the engine. Gerard will reveal himself to 
indeed be Edgar and you'll collectively fight the Tentacles. It is a good 
idea to have relics protecting you from poison and berserk, as well as 
Running Shoes to negate the effects of slow. Have Celes cast Regen on 
everyone as soon as possible. Each Tentacle gets injured by different 
magic. Have Edgar use the Chainsaw, Flash, or Drill, Sabin use the Aura 
Bolt, and Celes use magic to cure or runic. When you win, go through the 
door and press A by the statue for the Soul Sabre. Go back the way you 
came, and the engineer will make the castle go to Kohlingen. Buy the 
new items and tools in the castle at half price by putting Edgar or Sabin 
in the front of your party. Head out for Kohlingen.

                        ------------------------

(4)  A New Airship
        
    When you find Setzer in the cafe of Kohlingen, he'll join you. Buy 
new equipment from the shops. Equip Setzer with either the Dice or the 
Trump. Go to Daryll's Tomb and save outside. From the beginning, go 
down stairs and to the right. Go up through the door, and press A on the 
tombstone. A door will open, which you should go through. Flip the 
switch at the top of the room and the water will go down. Return to the 
main hallway and go down. Keep going and collect the treasure chest. 
Once again go to the main hallway, only go all the way to the left and 
down (if you REALLY want to solve the tombstone puzzle, go down the 
center twice, and read each of the tombstones. Go to the main hallway, 
into the upper-left door, and put in THE WORLD IS SQUARE backwards). 
Go down the next set of stairs and collect the chest to your right. Move 
against the right wall and you'll find a hidden passage that leads to a 
treasure chest that contains the valuable Experience Egg. This doubles 
the experience earned of whoever has it equipped, so use it wisely. Go 
back through the passage and in the door to the north. Walk across the 
water and flip the switch. You'll see a door open. Return to the main 
hallway and go down through the center door. Flip the switch, then jump 
on the turtle. It'll take you to the door, which you should go through. 
Open up the right chest, than use a tent and save your game. You'll have 
to fight a dangerous enemy in the left chest, but, once defeated, he 
yields 1 or 2 powerful Fire Claws for Sabin. Save your game again, then
go through the northern door. Walk up to the casket to fight Dullahan. 
Have Sabin use Blitzes and the Fire Claw, Setzer use the Dice and Slot, 
Celes cast Fire and Cure spells, and Edgar use the Chainsaw or Drill. It 
shouldn't be difficult. When done, go up through the door and enjoy the 
cinema scene. You'll take off in the new airship.

NOTE: From this point on, the main objective is to find all of your 
party members. This can pretty much be done in any order, with a few 
exceptions. There are also a few side quests that allow you to collect 
very valuable items. At any point you can go to Kefka's Tower, although 
it is advised to gain levels before you do so. Many people don't like 
the openness of this point in the game; the story pretty much revolves 
around single character elements. However, it is still rather enjoyable. 
If you want to fully understand each character, you should spend time 
with their little subquests (Hidon, Doma Castle, Gau's home...). The 
path is really up to you.
                         
                        ------------------------

(5)  Cyan's Grievances
        
    When you first take off in the new airship, you'll see a bird, and 
follow it to Maranda. In the house in the upper-right, a girl says she's 
been receiving letters from her love in Mobliz, but you know that he's 
dead. The handwriting on the letter is that of Cyan. Take the girl's next 
letter to the carrier pigeon, and watch as it flys to Zozo.
    After flying to Zozo, talk to the man that told the truth the first 
time (he's up and to the right of the big tower) and he'll give you info 
and Rust-rid. Go into the Cafe and find the rusty door which will now 
become unrusted. Go through the passage to end up on Mt. Zozo. Make your 
way through the first room, making sure to collect the treasures. In the 
second room, use a tent and save your game, then step on the switch to 
your upper-right. This will release one of the 8 dragons from a treasure 
chest. If you are weak, you can save this fight for later. Otherwise, 
fight it using your strongest abilities. You should win. Continue climbing 
the mountain until you find Cyan. Enjoy the cinema scene. When it's 
done, you can go to where Cyan was and get the key to open his treasure 
chest. Open the chest and take his books, although they don't really do 
anything. Make your way out of Zozo or use a Warp Stone (or Warp magic), 
and fly back to Maranda with Cyan in your group. Talk to the townspeople 
again.

                        ------------------------

(6)  Face to Face With Phunbaba
        
    By this time you can check back on Terra in Mobliz. When you do, 
you'll notice that she's gone. Go into the house where Duane is and 
follow the dog into a secret passage behind the bookcase. There's an 
Elixir hidden in one of the pots. You'll have to fight Phunbaba again 
here, so make sure that you're healed up. Use the same tactics as when 
you fought him before. Midway through, Terra will morph and join you in 
the fight. Phunbaba's life resets at this point. It should be easy with 
Terra's magic skills. Terra will rejoin the party, and you can now 
continue your adventure.
                        
                        ------------------------

(7)  To the Veldt!
        
    Short chapter! Anyway, all you have to do is fight a battle in the 
Veldt with 3 people in your party. Gau will rejoin you and will have 
learned a few new Rages. If you wish, you may take him and Sabin to the 
house in the northwest. There Gau will meet his father. It's both funny 
and a tear-jerker.

                        ------------------------

(8a)  Save Shadow

Note: You can only save Shadow if you waited for him back on the 
Floating Continent!!!
        
    This is a split scenario. If you waited for Shadow on the Floating 
Continent, he will be waiting in the Veldt Cave. Go there and follow 
Interceptor. BE SURE to open EVERY treasure chest in the cave, or you 
may miss the valuable Striker!!! Eventually you'll find Shadow lying on 
the ground (it's after a save location). Be ready, because you'll have 
to battle two powerful Behemoths! Use Ice magic, and you shouldn't have 
trouble. However, get ready! Just after beating the first, its ghost 
will trap you from behind! This one is easy. Just use the item `Revivify' \
on it to kill it in one hit.
    When you do defeat the monster, you'll take Shadow to Thamasa. 
(NOTE: Ignore the fact that they mention him with 'she.' This was just 
bad coding, as you can also rescue Relm here in an alternate fashion) 
After sleeping at the inn, he'll disappear, having gone to the Coliseum. 
Make sure to search the left wall of Strago's house (upstairs) for 
another Memento Ring.
    Head far west to the Coliseum. You'll hear about a man dressed in 
black searching for a Striker. Bet the Striker (you should have found it 
in the cave), and you'll fight Shadow (even though it says Shadow Chupon). 
You'll easily defeat him, and he'll join your party for the rest of the 
game.

                        ------------------------

(8b)  Save Relm
        
    No matter if you saved her in the cave or saved Shadow instead, Relm 
will end up at Owzer's House (it is located at the top of Jidoor). Head 
to Jidoor and up to the large house there. After trying to go up the 
stairs, read Owzer's Diary. Press A on the lamp (near the stairs), then 
go up. If you wish, fight the flower portrait. Look at the picture of 
Geshtahl twice for a clue about the Phoenix Cave. Then look at the 
woman's portrait. When you defeat the enemy, enter the door that appears. 
Follow the path (some of the portraits do things, so watch out), and, 
when you find 3 doors on 1 wall, walk behind the wall and press A for the 
valuable Relic Ring (makes Doom/Poison cure, and Cure/Life injure). Go 
through the left-most door. If you wish, stand under the floating chests 
to fight an enemy. You have to go to each one in a certain order. Then 
go through the door. Save your game and go through the right door (the 
left is a trap). Fight the Spirit Chadarnook, using strong fire attacks 
on the demon form. You may want to cast Regen on everyone, because one 
of his moves damages everyone over time. He'll transform, and, in doing 
so, change what he takes damage from. After winning (it may take awhile), 
Relm will join your party.

                        ------------------------

(9)  Strago and Ebot's Rock
        
    Having saved Relm, take her to the Fanatics' Tower. A very confused 
Strago will be marching with some Kefka Worshippers, but will snap out 
of his trance when he sees Relm. Take both of them to Thamasa, and, after 
a cinema scene, buy some equipment and head to Ebot's Rock. Enter the 
cave and talk to the chest. Using the transporters, find 22 or more 
pieces of coral, then bring them back to the chest. The chest will move 
out of the way, and you can face Hidon. Take Strago along, and kill off 
the little Hidonites first. This will cause Hidon to use Grand Train 
(which Strago will learn afterwards). Keep attacking with Fire and Cure 
attacks and eventually Hidon will fall. Hopefully you got him to cast 
Grand Train, which is one of Strago's best Lore attacks. Enjoy the 
cinema scene. If you DIDN'T learn Grand Train, fear not; all is not lost. 
Talk to Gungho in Thamasa until he says, "Hidon hasappeared at Ebot's 
Rock again!" Go back to Ebot's Rock, feed the chest, and you can face 
Hidon again. Do this as often as you want.

                        ------------------------

(10)  Mog Lives!
        
    Take your airship to Narshe. Ignore the fact that the doors are 
locked until you find Locke later on. Remember the Moogle Village? Well, 
return there by going through the Narshe Caves. Mog will be there, and 
he'll join you. Search where he was standing for the Moogle Charm (avoids 
random enemy fights). Take Mog with you and head north through the caves 
where you started the game.  In the snowy area where you fought Kefka you 
will find the Ice Dragon. Simply use Fire attacks to kill it quickly. 
Fight another enemy in the area and you'll learn the Snowman Jazz dance 
for Mog. Go to the frozen Esper Tritoch and fight it. Use strong weapon 
attacks and Fire magic. When you thaw it out, you will receive its 
Magicite, and the cliff will break. Have Mog in your party and jump off 
the now open cliff.
    Follow the cave's route, picking up treasure chests along the way. 
It is a puzzle that shouldn't take long once you realize where the ground 
breaks away. Beware of the chest that contains the Pugs, as they are 
very deadly. Come back to them later. You'll eventually reach a room 
with a bone carving. Take the Magicite from it and Umaro the sasquatch 
will fight you. Defeat him with powerful attacks, and, after beating him, 
Mog will forcibly make him join your party (they are friends). If Mog 
isn't in your party, be sure to bring him to Umaro.
    This is a good time to take care of the Earth Dragon. Fly to the 
Opera House, where you will hear of a dragon on the stage. Go to the 
switch room and flip the third switch from the left. This will cause you 
to fall onto the stage. When you fight the Earth dragon, make sure that 
you equip everyone with a Cherub Down relic (which you can buy in 
Jidoor). This will alow you to float, avoiding the dragon's deadly 
quake attacks and prevent him from negating the effect. Defeating him 
will then be simple.

                        ------------------------

(11)  Phoenix Cave
        
    Head to the Pheonix Cave, which, as Gestahl's portrait told you, is 
hidden in the center of the star-shaped mountain range. Fly over it and 
you will drop down to the entrance, breaking up into two parties. If you 
want to make this area very easy, have Mog in one of your parties and 
equip him with the Moogle Charm. If you want to rough it and face tough 
enemies, by all means do not use his relic. You may also want to have 
Umaro because of his immunity to fire attacks thanks to the Snow Muffler. 
Follow the maze's twists and turns, and notice how most of the chests 
are empty. Look carefully at the ground for difficult-to-see switches. 
It is required that both parties flip switches so that others can 
advance further into the cave. You'll eventually end up at the Fire 
Dragon (make sure to save your game beforehand). Fight the dragon, or, 
if you're weak, save it for later. Use strong ice attacks against the 
beast to make quick work of it. Afterwards, go back up and stand on the 
switch to make a set of rocks appear. Have the other party leap across 
using the rocks, then head down with both parties. Have each stand on 
one of the 2 switches, and the raised land will lower. Follow the path  
and you'll at last find Locke.
    Enjoy the long cinema scene, then take Locke to Narshe. Search the 
weapon shop and the northern shop for the Ragnarok Sword/Esper and 
Cursed Shield. I suggest you take the Esper, or read the Secrets section 
for another way to learn Ultima involving uncursing the shield.

                        ------------------------

(12)  Fanatics' Tower
        
    Go to the Fanatics' Tower. In this tower you cannot normally fight, 
so be sure to come with your strongest magic users (or, if you wish, 
include Umaro; his Berserk-like state allows him to attack. However, 
his inability to heal your other party members may be your downfall). 
If you are lazy and don't want to fight anyone, or you want to get the 
treasures present beforehand, use Mog's Moogle Charm. You may wish to 
learn a lot of magic before entering. Especially make sure that everyone 
knows Osmose so that they can replenish their MP in fights. Equip someone 
with the Siren Esper, and have somebody know Life3. Berserk also helps. 
It is also suggested to know the Ultima spell, as it will wipe out even 
the toughest of enemies in a few attacks. Equip strong magic-defending 
equipment, such as Force Armor and the Force Shield. Use the Siren Esper 
to perform an almost 100% working Mute attack, which debilitates any of 
the strong magic that enemies use. Fight your way to the first treasure 
room and take the treasure. Then move to the right of the chest, walk up, 
and press A. You'll here a noise. Go out the room and downstairs to the 
new door. Enter and take the Air Anchor (one of Edgar's Tools). Then 
continue your journey up the tower. If you fight a Magic Barrel, DON'T 
KILL IT. Instead, let it heal you until it runs away. You'll fight a 
Dragon higher in the tower. The fight should be easy with the Ultima 
spell. At the top of the tower, take the Gem Box and equip it on the 
strongest magic user. Be prepared for what is probably the most annoying 
boss of the game. When you fight the Magi Master, cast Life3 on as many 
people as possible (but at least one). The Magi Master changes what he 
can be hurt by magicwise, but, if you have the Berserk spell, cast it on 
him immediately to keep him from changing. It will be a tough, long 
battle. However, if you have the Ultima spell, it shouldn't take too 
long. If you cast Life3 on somebody, then you'll win even after he uses 
Ultima as a final attack. Alternately, you can use Rasp and Osmose to 
gradually wear down his 50,000 MP. Once he runs out there is pretty much 
nothing that he can do (including the final casting of Ultima). Now head 
back down the tower (easier said than done, unless you have the Moogle 
Charm equipped).

                        ------------------------

(13)  Cyan's Dream
        
    Fly to Doma Castle. Make sure that you have Cyan in your party. Upon 
arriving, strange things will happen and your group will be seperated. 
Walk through the various doors until you find your two other group 
members. You should be able to make it as far as the Three Dream Stooges 
easily. Kill the flying one first, as that one can cast Life on the 
others. Once he's down, the rest should be easy. After that, you'll 
continue through Cyan's mind. You will find yourself back on the Phantom 
Train. The puzzles are much like they were the first time around. When 
you find the Lump of Metal, go up to the moving chest and press A to 
put the metal in the chest, stopping it (you won't lose it, though). Flip 
the switch and study the chests' patter. When you find another group of 
six chests later, enter the same pattern and flip the switch to move on. 
Eventually you will wind up in Magitek Armor. Go down, then to the right. 
Enter the cave, than walk outside. Fall through the bridge. In Doma 
Castle, save your game, and feel free to walk around, witnessing Cyan's 
memories of his family. Head to the throne room and fight Wrexsoul. When 
he enters someone's body, either kill each other off one at a time until 
he appears, or use Life3 on everyone and kill the party. After that, use 
Vanish/X-Zone if you are a cheap coward, or use strong fire attacks. 
DO NOT use X-Zone if you want to collect a valuable Pod Bracelet. Either 
way, you'll end up with a nifty Aura sword for Cyan, and he'll learn the 
final few SwdTech attacks! Go back the throne room when you wake up and 
collect the Alexander Esper.

                        ------------------------

(14)  Ancient Castle

    Take your strongest party and fly to Figaro Castle. Inside, you 
should rest and buy supplies, then ask the engineer to submerge the 
castle. On your way back to the large desert, you'll bump into 
something. Tell the engineer that you'd like to stop and search, then 
head to the jail. Enter the open jail cell, and you'll be in a large 
cave. Be sure to pick up the treasures in the first room, then enter 
the right-most door near the bottom of the screen. Open the treasure 
chest and be ready to fight the Master Pugs! If you win, you'll get 
the powerfull Graedus sword! After winning this battle, head to the 
left and through the wall (it is fake), then down a ladder below you. 
Head left, and keep walking along the bottom of the room, then climb 
up a ladder. Go up and to the left through a doorway. Search the bottom 
of this new room for two treasure chests, then go down the set of 
stairs. Save at the save point, and continue left and up. Enjoy the 
sequence that reveals the past of the Ancient Castle, then enter the 
main doorway. Fight your way to the throne room and walk to the very 
top of the screen. Talk to the stone statuete of Odin for his Magicite. 
Enter an archway (the first one on the left), and open the chest for 
Umaro's valuable Blizzard Orb. Go back into the throne room and head to 
the right and down into a hidden doorway. Press A next to the sparkling 
image on the shelf for a book. The man in Figaro's library (if you go 
back) will now reveal a secret. Otherwise, here is what he tells you: 
go 5 steps down from the queen's throne in the Ancient Castle. Do so, 
and press A. You'll hear a noise. Go back to the right and into the 
Ancient Castle library to find a new staircase. Go down it and talk to 
the queen's statue to transform the Odin Magicite into Raiden. (NOTE: 
be aware that the Odin magicite is the only one that provides and agility 
bonus at level up, and after the transformation it will be gone forever) 
Fight the dragon then go to the castle courtyard. Walk left and into 
the double doors. Open the treasure chest and fight a tough enemy for 
the awesome Offering Relic. Go back into the courtyard, but this time go 
right. Walk into a crack in the wall and open the chest. Now you 
can FINALLY get out of here.

                        ------------------------

(15)  Finding That Mimic
        
    When on Triangle Island (it is in the upper-right of the world map), 
fight the Zone Eater (the only enemy there). Don't kill it. Instead 
have everyone be engulfed. You'll find yourself in a cave. On the 
bridges, don't touch the green guys or you'll be knocked off (although 
there are some handy treasures if you fall down there). Make sure to get 
the Fake Mustache (changes Sketch into Control). Work your way past the 
deadly falling ceiling room (stand under the small openings to avoid 
being crushed), and you'll eventually find Gogo.

(16)  Kefka's Tower
        
    Oh no! You have to split up into 3 groups! The pain! The 
horror! Actually, it shouldn't be that difficult if you're near level 
50. This tower is made out of pieces from other areas of the game and new 
areas. Basically, work your way through the hordes of enemies. If you're 
going for the Crusader Esper and the valuable Merton spell, defeat the 
2 Dragons here. You'll have to fight Atma and a machine. Fight the 3 
statues, saving after each victory. Make sure to equip the Sky Render 
on Cyan and the Aura Lance on either Mog or Edgar. Now you can head for 
Kefka. Enjoy the overdramatic cinema scene, equip all of your characters, 
then fight. Use Pearl, Ultima, and basically the strongest magic possible 
on all of his lower minions. If you have a Genji/Offering combo, this 
really shouldn't be a tough battle at all. One of the parts will cast Doom on someone at the end of 
a fight, so you may lose one character (that is okay; after each round, 
dead characters are replaced by alternates). There are also valuable 
items to steal which can then be equipped through the Item menu. Have 
somebody cast Life3 for the battle with Kefka, as he casts Fallen One, 
which makes your HP go down to a measly 1 pont. It shouldn't be too
difficult at all. Enjoy the lengthy ending.

                        ------------------------
 
(17)  Did You Get These Elusive Items?

Chainsaw     - put in 6:10:50 at the clock in Zozo.
Air Anchor   - press A right of the treasure chest, first room 
               Fanatics' Tower. Go downstairs.
Soul Sabre   - statue in treasure room, engine area of Figaro 
               Castle.
Drainer      - chest in falling house, Tzen.
Illumina     - wager the Ragnarok Sword at Collosseum. Only if 
               you took the sword.
Tiger Fangs  - hidden room, Veldt Cave.
Imp Halberd  - win from Tyrannosaur.
Imp Armor    - steal from Tyrannosaur.
Marvel Shoes - wager Rename Card at Coliseum.
Merit Award  - wager Cat Hood at Coliseum.

                        ------------------------

(18)  A Few More Tips and Secrets
        
    How do you gain levels fast? Well, try fighting in the for-
est north of the Veldt. There you fight Tyrannosaurs, which give 
you a ton of experience. You may also occasionally fight the Brachosaur.
    The best place for Gold AND Magic Points is in the desert 
south of Maranda. There you fight the Cactrot, which gives you 
10 Magic Points and 10,000 GP.
    In the forest north of the Veldt (where you fight Tyrannosaurs), 
you'll occasionally fight the dangerous Brachosaur. This fearsome beast 
can cast Ultima! However, when you defeat it, there's a chance of 
receiving the VERY valuable Economizer. This awesome relic lowers all 
spells (and that includes Lore attacks) to only 1 MP! This, by the way, 
makes the game almost too easy. Use this only if you want the rest of the 
game to be a cakewalk using the sick Gem Box/Economizer combo.
    To learn Sabin's Bum Rush Blitz, bring Sabin to Duncan's House. 
It is hidden on the same continent as Narshe near a cross of trees. 
Gee, Duncan bears an uncanny resemblance to Banon. Read nothing into 
that, though.
    Taking the Ragnarok Esper allows you to learn the powerful 
spell Ultima! It has the power of FF2's Meteo, if not stronger.
    Alternatively, take the Ragnarok Sword. Wager it at the Colloseum 
for the Illumina, the Legendary Sword. This is probably the best sword 
in the game (unless you count the Atma Weapon with 9999 HP). 
    To face Doom Gaze, you must fly around in your ship until he 
attacks. Remember that he can't regenerate his HP after battle, so if 
you keep fighting him, he'll eventually die. DO NOT use Vanish/X-Zone 
on him, as by doing so you won't receive the Bahamut Esper. Vanish/Doom, 
on the other hand, works just fine... if you like that sort of thing.
    Many people wonder where the Megalixer is. Well, there are 3 that 
appear normally throughout the game: one after beating the Magi Master, 
another in Kefka's Tower, and one when you steal from Kefka. However, 
to get unlimited Megalixers, try casting Stop on the scorpion beastes 
in the desert of the Solitary Island, then stealing from them.
    To un-curse the Cursed Shield, fight with it in 255 battles. I 
suggest using a Ribbon to stop most of its dangerous effects. After 
the battles it will become the Paladin Shield, which is the most 
powerful shield in the game! It absorbs all elemental attacks, has a 
near 50% evade rate, a VERY high defense rate, and even teaches you 
Ultima! Of course, you can also trade the Cursed Shield in for a Cursed 
Ring at the Coliseum. After 255 battles with this, you will get... 
NOTHING! This item DOES NOT uncurse, although there appear to be some 
cases where it does eventually become a Hero Ring. There is no, I repeat, 
NO PALADIN RING IN THIS GAME. So, how do you get the Cursed Ring without 
losing the Cursed Shield? Well, try fighting the Veterans or the Didalos 
of Kefka's Tower. They can be found in either of the rooms where you 
normally fight the 2 dragons. It may take awhile, but you'll get a Cursed 
Ring after a fight. You can also try using the Ragnarok Esper on them, 
although this is rarely succesful without a huge magic level.

Thanks and Happy FF3ing!  ^_^

                       PART TWO-Monster List
---------------------------------------------------------------
By SethWHardy                                  
Edited by GWS Wizard, JonN2002 and King Kung

NOTE FROM KUNG:
As of this writing, I do not know if Seth is still a member of
the Internet community, but you should all be greatfull for this
list. If you want to know what you will likely get from Stealing,
use this list, or if you are fighting a particularly tough
enemy, most of their statistics, such as HP, MP, and even 
weaknesses, can be found here. Seth certainly did an excellent
job. I believe their is one missing character here, Chupon, and
I'm always planning to get it's data but never do. The reason?
You can't really beat him usually before he blows you away. And
no, his Coliseum appearances really don't count; he's more of a 
placeholder there for weak items, though he CAN be beaten.

KEY:
MONSTER NAME-The name of the monster as it appears in the game.
MONSTER'S LEVEL-Useful for using spells that pertain to levels.
MONSTER'S HP-How many Hit Points the monster has.
MONSTER'S MP-How many Magic Points the monster has.
MONSTER'S WEAK POINTS-What types of damage the monster is part-
iculary vulnerable to.
MONSTER'S ITEMS-What you can get from the monster
(One of two ways: By using Locke's steal ability OR by killing 
the monster.)
MONSTER'S EXPERIENCE-How much experience you get from the mon-
ster (Total)
MONSTER'S GP-How many Gold Pieces you get from the monster.


ENEMY       LVL  HP      MP    WEAK          STEAL    EXP.  GP.

       PART THREE-Item, Weapon, Armor, and Relic List
---------------------------------------------------------------
I remember spending far too much time getting many of the things
from this section. The sheer amount of numbers made me, and all 
that spent hours getting these stats, ill. However, this is a very 
usefull section if you want to make sure you have found EVERY 
item out there. Are you skilled (or just persistent) enough to get 
them all? No? You wuss. ;)

RARE ITEMS
----------
These are the items that you can see if you go to the Rare Items screen 
because they are special and thus seperated from the rest. You can't 
manually use these items from the menu, they are activated automatically 
in the game or are there mearly to be viewed. There has been a lot of 
controversy over how many rare items actually exist in FF3. Well, 
according to our notes and what we've seen, there are thirteen rare 
items that have been found in the normal game, without using the Game 
Genie. The others can not be found ANYWHERE, period. They were most 
likely items that did nothing or originally served a purpose but were 
taken out of the game. Also, the books serve no puropse. AT ALL. 
Really. They do not make Cyan stronger or even increase the power of 
Edgar's tools. That is a bunch of balogna, yet another rumor that got 
out of control.

  Books           Simple book of machinery...And "Book of Secrets"...
  Cider           Cider, taken from a merchant
  Coral           Piece of coral, found in the cave near Ebot's Rock.
  Fish            Just a fish
  Fish            Fish
  Fish            A yummy fish
  Fish            A rotten fish
 *Lola's Letter   I'm doing fine. Hope you come visit soon...
  Lump of Metal   A heavy weight, Put it into a chest, and...
  Old Clock-Key   An old clock-key, found on a soldier.
  Pendant         A pendant worn by the girl who pilots the MagiTek Armor
  Royal Letter    At a star-shaped mountain range...
  Rust-Rid        Rust solvent
**Autograph       An opera singer's autograph.
**Glass           A magnifying glass with a peculiar lense...
**Opera Record    A scratched record...
**Rock            A strange stone emitting an eerie glow...
**Stone           An invisible stone...
**????            A delicate golden feather.

Notes:

 * - You only have this letter before delivering it to a carrier pigeon
** - Only available through use of the Game Genie; May have been
     completely removed from Playstation edition

       PART FOUR-Advanced Battle Tactics and "The Best" of FF3
---------------------------------------------------------------
By JonN2002 and King Kung


BUILDING MONSTER CHARACTERS
---------------------------
By JonN2002

Listed below is an easy-to-follow four-step plan for creating a
super-effective party that will be able to defeat (with ease) any
enemies in the game. (Kefka included!) If the following regimen is
followed precisely, the four characters you choose to concentrate
on should be unstoppable, monster characters! Enjoy, and happy killing!

FOUR-STEP PLAN FOR CREATING AN ULTIMATE TEAM:

(1) Step One: Fight, fight, fight!

Select three powerful characters (I prefer Terra, Celes, and Edgar
or Locke, but it doesn't matter too much), and equip them with Paladin
Shields, and the best weapons and armor in the game. Equip each with
an esper that raises stats SIGNIFICANTLY upon level gain (i.e.,
Bahamut or Palidor, and most of the ones found in the WOR, etc.). Next,
go to the forest north of the Veldt (near Gau's father's house) and
fight the Tyrannosaurs and Brachosaurs AD NAUSEAM! Before long, these
fearsome three should evolve into your finest warriors, and you are
one step closer to the ultimate party!
(Note: for best results, I strongly suggest using a Game Genie to get
several Illuminas and Paladin Shields for each character).

(2) Step Two: Perfect and Specialize

Take the time to learn EVERY technique and skill, including ALL
magic spells for each of your three master characters. Practice
each skill, including magic, and equip the following relics and
weapons combinations wherever possible to perfect the "edge" of
each fighter:

Terra: I prefer a Genji Glove and Offering, coupled with an Atma
Weapon and an Illumina sword in each hand. Nix the shield after she
learns the Ultima spell. Trust me... she blocks almost every hit
without the armor bonus, and can slam foes for 8-hits a round, each
at 9999 or close to it.

Edgar: No question about it: this is your standard equipment man --
that means Illumina or your best sword for him, and best armor possible.
Relics include an Amulet or Hero Ring and Marvel shoes or cure ring.

Celes: Give Celes an Illumina blade plus Offering relic to have her
hit effectively for 9999 or close to it for 4 hits a round. She lacks
Terra's natural blocking ability, and requires a Paladin shield for
maximum defense. Her other relic is of your choice, but an Economizer
or Gem Box works wonders.

Locke: Locke works the same way as Edgar, but include a Thief Ring if
you insist on stealing/capturing. Also, the ring raises his battle speed
tremendously.

(3) Step Three: Gogo Steps Into the Equation

Without a doubt, Gogo is your most versatile ally, and, in my opinion,
next possibly to Terra, your best character, no questions asked.
What's that you say? He's too weak? Can't equip anything worthwhile?
WRONG! Give him the infamous Merit Badge relic, and he can wield an
Illumina and wear top armor with the best of them. Give him the Hero
Medal, or whatever the item is that increases his vigor (I forgot it at
the moment), and the best weapons and armor in the game, including
Paladin Shield and Illumina. Next, select the Status menu for Gogo in
the Status screen, and you will notice that you can give him the special
skills of all your party members. I suggest giving him Magic, Fight,
and Blitz. When in doubt, the Blitz will hit hard against all your
enemies for a quick, efficient takeout, sans MP cost. With the
Illumina, vigor bonuses, and Paladin Shield, plus super level-up
skill-building, Gogo will block virtually anything that comes his way
(for me, he's even been known to block most special attacks, including
Siegfried's HyperDrive and Shrapnel attacks. Yikes!). Magic spells of
all types and classes will either be blocked by his shield, or will
actually GIVE the Mimic HP. There is NO stopping him when he has reached
his maximum power and efficiency, plus bonuses. Plus, he will be able
to use whatever spells the combined members of the party he's in have
learned, which is why I stressed earlier the necessity of learning all
spells. If you insist, he can also use his mimic abilities, as well,
but by this time, the others will want to mimic him! Just for show and
because he's so great, I named my Gogo character Golbez. :)

(4) Step Four: Test Drive

Well, this isn't actually a step in character building, per se, as much
as it is a chance to gloat at your characters' kick-butt power. Go
kill some dragons, haunt the Veldt, storm Kefka's tower and laugh at
his monsters, etc. My favorite activity is to take Gogo solo -- to the
Colosseum, where he will reign supreme! If by now you aren't satisfied
with your Killer 4, work on building up another powerful force of
fighters..remember, the key is in Gogo. Trust me.


All I can say is, I hope you've had as much fun kicking
serious monster behind as I have with this surefire strategy for
killing efficiently, effectively, and ultimately. Who knows; maybe
someday, someone will invent a new school of battle tactics thought,
and my 4-Step plan will be rendered utterly useless. But if you've
learned anything from this plan, it's that you simply MUST fight as
many monsters as possible. A common problem, especially among beginning
RPG players, is the desire to run from or skip over the monsters,
and thus the essential experience gain from killing them. Without
building up halfway decent characters, you will not stand a blink of
an eye of a chance against the harder baddies, much less the majority of
the bosses. And who feels as badly as a regular loser at the Colosseum?
And let's face it: who wants to look bad, in general? So take my
advice: LEVEL UP 'TILL YOU DROP!


THE 'BEST' OF FF3
-----------------
By King Kung

The Best for Fighting
---------------------

Below is a list of techniques that can either make your character super 
powerful or allow them to do special actions. 

1)  Equip an Offering and Genji Glove. 8 swings of the weapon! Equip
someone with the Atma Weapon (level 60 and up) and another strong
sword for over 60,000 HP of damage!

2) Another possibility is to hold 2 Scimitars (or other weapons that 
have special effects). Because you attack 8 times, it is highly 
likely that the weapon will do something special!

3)  Rage Ring and Blizzard Orb. With these two relics, Umaro becomes
a real fighting machine.


4)  Black Belt, Offering. If an enemy hits you, they're in for a big
surprise as you counterattack four times.

5)  Do you think Imps are useless? Try turning someone into an imp,
then equiping them with the Imp Halberd, Imp Armor, Tortoise Shield,
and Titanium. Now you have a super strong imp! You can even create 
a party of imps and have fun mauling your enemies. Although Kappa 
itself isn't in the game, you can rename someone Kappa with the 
Rename Card and have fun pretending.

6)  Hero Ring and Offering. This recovers some of the power of the
weapon that is lost with the Offering equipped.

7)  Muscle Belt and the Atma Weapon. If this weapon gains power with
the amount of your HP, why not have more HP?


The Best Tricks and Cominations
-------------------------------

1)  Gem Box and Offering. I've always wanted to cast two Ultima
spells per round, and have it cost me only 2 MP. This is one of 
the cheapest tricks around.

2)  Earings and more Earings. Use this if you want some heavy
magic power.

3)  Equip Relic Ring. Cast Doom on this person, and the entire
party will be completely cured!

4)  For Gau and Mog, equip the Snow Muffler. Almost all attacks do
1 HP of damage on you, and you're immune to Fire and Ice attacks.

5)  Mog with the Moogle Charm and Sprint Shoes.  Good for doing
quick tasks or if you want to try your best to blitz straight through 
the World of Ruin.

6)  Equip a Thief Glove and an Offering on Locke. Use Capture, and
you get 4 chances to steal from the enemy.

7)  With Gogo, set 3 of his skills as Steal and equip the Thief Glove 
and Offering. Use this in the Coliseum if you want to steal from the 
enemy.

---------------------------------------------------------------
By King Kung, NELDOG, GWS Wizard, JonN2002, Tommy J L and Tortolia2
Edits by King Kung


SPECIAL CHARACTER SKILL NOTES
-----------------------------
Edgar can use 8 "tools" in battle.
 - Autocrossbow: arrow attack hits all enemies
 - Drill: single damaging hit
 - Bio Blast: poisonous gas attack hits all enemies
 - Debilitator: creates weakness in enemy
 - Flash: blind and damages all enemies
 - Chainsaw: massive hit (randome death)
 - Noise Blaster: confuses all enemies
 - Air Anchor: enemies die after attacking party
Many of these can be bought in Edgar's castle, South Figaro.

Sabin has special control pad techniques that are issued when the
"blitz" command is invoked.  Select "blitz", input the code and then
press A to continue. These work much like Street Fighter moves.

 - Pummel         : L,R,L
 - Mantra (heals) : R,L,R,L,X,Y
 - AuraBolt       : D,DL,L
 - Air Blade      : U,UR,R,DR,D,DL,L (clockwise "roll")
 - Suplex         : X,Y,D,U
 - Spiraler       : R,L,X,Y,R,L
 - Fire Dance     : L,DL,D,DR,R (counter-clockwise "roll")
 - Bum Rush       : L,UL,U,UR,R,DR,D,DL,L (total clockwise circle)

Cyan uses a special "sword techniques" that must be "powered up" when 
selected up to 8 levels.
 - Dispatch: powerful attack
 - Retort: counterattack
 - Slash: absorb damage given to enemy
 - Quadraslam: attack four times
 - Empowerer: absorb HP and MP (reminiscent of Drgn Sword, FF5...)
 - Stunner: Stops all enemies
 - Quadraslice: stronger version of Quadraslam
 - Cleave: instantly kills all enemies
 
Terra can morph into a half human, half Esper form, increasing all of her 
stats until she has to morph back or the battle ends. The duration of the 
morph is determined by Terra's level and number of battles since her last 
morph.

Locke can use his turn to steal an item from the enemy. Whether he is 
successful or not depends on his speed stat and the speed of the enemy. 
With the Thief Glove equipped, Locke can attack while stealing.

Shadow throws varying items at the opponent for damage. These can include 
items designes specifically for such a purpose (ninja stars, scrolls...) 
or regular weapons. He is also aided by Interceptor, his dog, who helps 
by defending against attacks and counterattacking.

Setzer plays a slot machine, and depending on the outcome, various things 
will happen. Matching three of the same slot produces a positive effect. 
A losing spin will heal some of the party with the Lagomorph. However, 
getting two 7s and a bar will end in instant death for both the opposition 
and your party! With the Coin Toss relic equipped, Setzer can toss GP 
at the enemy for massive damage (like the name GP Toss suggests).

Strago is a Blue Mage; when an enemy uses a specific spell on him in 
battle, he learns that spell for use in the future. View the Lore List 
for what Lore spells he can learn and who ususally gives them up.

Gau has the unique ability to learn the skills of creachers from the Veldt 
by leaping on them. When he returns to the party he can use these new 
skills in battle. Leaping can ONLY be done on the Veldt, and may learn 
the skills of all beasts in the current battle. When Gau immitates the 
specific enemy, he takes along attributes, such as strengths, weaknesses, 
and even weaponry! See the Rage List for every learning possibility.

Relm uses her artistic talent to sketch (actually paint...) an enemy 
character, who then attacks the same opposing party. This command was 
very glitchy on early releases of the game, causing either helpful or 
catastrophic changes to you and your save files. With the Fake Mustache 
that is found in the Zone Eater, she can control the enemy, making it 
use specific commands each round. When Relm is hit, her control of 
the enemy ends. View the Sketch and Control list for specific trait 
descriptions.

Celes has the unique ability of Runic, which absorbs any spell used 
during a round of action. Generally she receives the MP that the spell 
cost to use, but equipment can effect this value. The Runic Absorb List 
can be found immediatly after the Magic List. It should be noted that 
some of the spells that can be absorbed are enemy-specific ones.

Mog, being a moogle, is in touch with his surroundings, and thus can 
use them in battle. When he dances the dance of a specific environment, 
special calamities and animals come to the party's aid. To learn an 
areas dance he mearly has to complete a fight in that area. A dance used 
in it's normal environment during battle will always work, while a 
different one may fail. Mog's dances are given in the Dance List.

Umaro the Yeti uses his bulk to attack when equipped with the Rage Ring. 
He will bodyslam enemies and even through party members at the enemies! 
Both do massive damage. When wearing the Blizzard Orb he can also breath 
an Arctic blast for damage to all enemies. Be aware that you can not 
control Umaro's actions.

Gogo is a master of the Mimicron, allowing him to mimic the last action 
of your party. This applies to everything except normal attacks and 
unique powers like Morph. Everything else will be copied, although if 
an attack or magic spell it will generally do less damage or have less 
of an effect. From the status screen Gogo can even equip the skills of 
other party members! It should be noted that some skills, again, can't be 
used, and other require specific equipment to be useable.

RUNIC LIST
----------

Celes's Runic Blade can absorb the following:

Cure, Cure2, Cure3         Antdot
Remedy                     Life, Life2, Life3
Regen                      Fire, Fire2, Fire3
Ice, Ice2, Ice3            Bolt, Bolt2, Bolt3
Poison                     Bio
Drain                      Break
Doom                       Pearl
Flare                      Demi
Quartr                     X-Zone
Ultima                     Scan
Slow, Slow2                Haste, Haste2
Rasp                       Osmose
Mute                       Safe
Shell                      Sleep
Muddle                     Stop
Bserk                      Float
Imp                        Rflect
Vanish                     Dispel
Atomic Ray                 N. Cross
Diffuser                   Tek Laser

Note: If Celes/Gogo has protective armor against various ele-
ments, the amount of MP absorbed will be affected. Usually, 
absorption of spells is the same amount of MP it takes to cast 
the spell. If an armor has 50% Damage against Fire, using Runic 
with Fire will only get you 2 MP instead of 4. Also, if the 
armor says that an element has no effect, you won't get any MP. 
This might be the case commonly with Celes, since she can use 
Minerva, powerful armor with lots of magic protection. Remember, 
Runic works on Ultima!


ORIGINAL NAMES IN FF6 (Japanese Version of FF3)
-----------------------------------------------

These are the original character names:

   US - FF3       Japan - FF6
---------------------------------
 1. Locke           Lock *
 2. Terra           Tina *
 3. Celes           Celes
 4. Cyan            Cayenne *
 5. Sabin           Mash *
 6. Edgar           Edward *
 7. Setzer          Setzar *
 8. Strago          Straggus *
 9. Relm            Relm
10. Mog             Mog
11. Gogo            Gogo
12. Umaro           Uumaro *
13. Shadow          Shadow
14. Gau             Gau

* - Denotes ones that were changed, some just to accomodate 
    6-letter name limit.

Editor's Note: Some people are puzzled as to why the Japanese 
               can get away with having more than six letters. 
               Well, the answer is pretty simple when you think 
               about it: Japanese characters can have one or 
               two letters contained within each to produce a 
               sound. Tina (Terra) would be three letters in 
               Japanese. So, the Japanese DO have a letter li-
               mit... It's just that they make better use of 
               the space. :)


FINAL FANTASY AS A MULTIPLAYER GAME
-----------------------------------
To use multiplayer mode, go to the config screen and change 
it from single to multi, then hit A and assign characters
To the controlers. It only works for battles though, not 
the regular gameplay. 





CONTROLS FOR THE 'VEHICHLES'
----------------------------
Key:

L = left on control pad
R = right on control pad
U = up on control pad
D = down on control pad

UR = up/right diagnol
DR = down/right diagnol
DL = down/left diagnol
UL = up/left diagnol

LB = left button on top of control pad
RB = right button on top of control pad

A,B,X,Y = control buttons


<Riding Chocobos>

U = move forward
L or R = turn

A = move forward
B = dismount (Chocobo returns to stable)

<Airship>

U or D = adjust height
L or R = turn

A = move forward
B = leave airship

X = switch to view inside airship
Y = turn airship when it's not moving

LB or RB = highspeed turns
                                        

COLOSSEUM LIST
--------------

Use this list to determine who you will fight for the item you 
wager and what you get should you win. If the item is not on this 
list, when it is wagered you will fight Chupon for an Elixir, though
you will more than likely be sneezed out of the battle quickly. It IS
possible to beat Chupon, but you need a super beafed-up character. 
When you wager valuable items, remember to save before the fight in 
case you should lose.

ESPER LIST
----------

This shows the stat bonus you receive when you level up with an 
Esper. It also lists the spells each Esper teaches and the speed 
at which you will learn them. Notice that some Espers teach the 
same spells but at different speeds. Also take note that once 
Odin is changed into Raiden, there is no going back to earn those 
prescious extra agility points.

DESPERATION (NEAR FATAL) ATTACKS
--------------------------------

When you are in critical condition (your HP is very low and your 
character is hunched over), choosing to fight may yield your 
character's Depseration Attack. These moves are extremely powerful, 
especially early in the game when you can't normally do several 
thousand points of damage. Gau and Umaro do not have Desperation Attacks 
because they do not have Fight as a command.

 Character   Name         Description
---------------------------------------------------------------
 Locke       Mirager      looks like first part of a Bum Rush
 Terra       Riot Blade   throws a series of rings at an enemy
 Celes       Spin Edge    spins around enemy holding out sword
 Edgar       Royal Shock  flash of light
 Sabin       Tiger Break  looks like Cyan's Empowerer
 Cyan        Back Blade   sword strike that turns screen black
 Mog         Moogle Rush  looks like Sabin's Pummel
 Strago      Sabre Soul   jumps at enemy, makes flash of light
 Relm        Star Prism   stars surround an enemy
 Shadow      Shadow Fang  jumps at enemy and claws it twice
 Setzer      Red Card     spins around and throws cards 3 times
 Gogo        X-Meteor     rock going from top right to bottom left
                          of the screen


LOCATIONS OF THE 8 DRAGONS
--------------------------

1 in Narshe (Ice)
1 in cave reached from Zozo (Thunder)
1 in Opera House (Dirt)
1 in Phoenix Cave (Red)
1 in Fanatics' Tower (White)
1 in Ancient Castle (Blue) 
2 in Kefka's Tower  (Gold and Skull)


LOCATIONS OF THE TWO SECRET CHARACTERS 
--------------------------------------

UMARO

In the WOR, go up to the top of the cliff where Tritoch is. 
Defeat the esper and then jump into the crack behind it. Be 
sure that you have Mog with you. Work your way through the caves 
until you come to a bone carving. Press A like you were talking 
to it and you will receive the magicite "Terrato." Umaro will 
come out of what looks like a cave opening to the north and you 
will fight him. When you beat him, Mog will force him to join 
you.

GOGO

In the WOR, go to the triangle island and wander around until 
you fight a ZoneEater. Let it engulf all of your characters and 
you will be able to explore the ZoneEater's stomach. If you 
search for a while, you will find Gogo in the caverns.

   
BANQUET SCORING SCHEME

If you have registered a Square product in the past, or have 
registered the great RPG FF3, then you may have recieved a Squ-
are Newsletter (the Ogopogo Examiner). Along with the informat-
ion about the next Square game to be released, are some Square 
Soft related products. One of the eye catchers is the Final 
Fantasy 3 Soundtrack (Kefka's Domain). However, the only way to 
get this is from Square directly, and the price is 40 dollars, 
about 2/3 the price of Final Fantasy 3! Many people who love 
the music of FF3 may want to purchase the CD, but aren't sure 
it provides the songs they like. Say no more, because the 3 CD 
collection is going to be revealed to you right now! Hopefully, 
this will provide you with the information you need on whether 
you want to spend the money. I will be listing the titles of 
each song, and any notes about it (where you find it in the 
game, approximate length, etc.).

                              Always a favorite. 3 minutes.

My overall rating: ***1/2 This is a great collection, but some 
of the songs you really want to hear are too short. However, it 
is worth it, in my opinion.
--Tortolia2

A second opinion: ****1/2 This CD has kept me entertained for hours
on end. Any serious music lover or FF/RPG lover alike should make a
point of adding this wonderful collection of gaming maserpieces to
their collection. Though you wish you could blast some of the 'tunes
for hours, many do seem short. :( Definitely worth the extra cash, and
a limited item, so get it now before it's gone forever!
--JonN2002

A 'Final' opinion: ***** As of this writing, the game music CDs have 
pretty much been rereleased and are available through several importers. 
The original soundtrack for FF3/6 is still a great purchase today. I 
give this collection the high rating because, of all the FF games, this 
one has my favorite music. A definite must-buy for Final Fanatics.
--KingKung


EASY EXP.
---------
Ok, want to get REAL EASY Exp.?
YOU NEED A RAPID FIRE CONTROLLER FOR THIS TO WORK or a rubber band.
Go to the Config screen and set the Buttons to "Memorize."
Now get to the Lete River Scene and travel on the raft to the 
first intersection. Choose "Up" and you'll go around in a circle 
and fight at least one battle. In the battle, have Banon use 
Health, Terra fight, Sabin fight, and Edgar uses the AutoCro-
ssbow. Now, put the controller on auto-fire for button A or put a 
rubber band around the button after the battle and leave it there. 
The raft will go around in circles, fighting enemies, with Banon 
healing the party! Leave it on overnight and see what happens!


VANISH/DOOM/X-ZONE
------------------
Using Vanish and then Doom on enemies early in the game usually 
kills them instantly, but as the game progresses, the rate of 
success is greatly lowered. Using X-Zone in place of Doom, your 
chances will be increased to 99% possibility of killing an enemy 
with this trick. 

WARNING: Using Vanish/X-Zone DOES NOT allow you
to collect most items from enemies! :(


EASY STATUS RECOVERY
--------------------
To cure a status ailment quickly and easily, equip the character 
that has the ailment with a relic that protects against that 
type of ailment. When you check your status after you have equi-
pped the relic, you should be completely cured!


SAVING WHEN NOT ON A SAVE POINT
-------------------------------
In places where you are controlling more than one party, such as 
the Phoenix Cave and Kefka's Tower, if one party is on a save 
point, then all the other parties are also considered to be 
standing on it and can use Tents to replenish their energy!


REVIVIFY THE DEAD
-----------------
Undead monsters are suceptible to Cure magic as well as items 
such as Life, Revivify, and Fenix Down. Try using these items 
and you should beat them in one hit!


UN-ICING YOUR FRIENDS
---------------------
When your allies are frozen, an easy way to "un-ice" them is to 
cast a Fire spell on them. Fire1 is best since it creates mini-
mal damage.

64      3037-54A6       After a battle, all your people who have the
                        Magic command learn every spell. Be aware that
                        this takes a long time, and it works after
                        EVERY battle, whether your guys already have
                        the spells or not.
65      3CB7-5F63       Gunslinger code for FF3: First equip everything
                        you have. As you do, the weapons you equipped
                        will change.
66      D5A7-8407       Almost perfect walk through walls
67      DAA7-7FD4       Talking to people in towns gives you a 50/50
                        chance of getting an Airship and a Bahamut Esper
68      DA24-8F0D       Events from the WOB occur again in the WOR
69      DA24-8F6D       Like #68, but not as drastic
70      D5E5-776D       Leo/Kefka Code: Start a game and your only
                        character will be someone who looks like Terra
                        but is actually Kefka. Change the party
                        positions around and you will then have Leo
                        and Terra. Kefka has no commands in battle, so
                        the game freezes when it's Kefka's turn.
71      5BAE-8F69       New rare items code: Go into battle and
                        double-click your sword or shield and the
                        battle will end. Look at the rare items
                        list and you'll see many new items.
                        Also, if you use your airship, you'll
                        go back to the WOB.
72      8FA3-846D       Makes boss monsters appear on the Veldt.
73      AA68-E7D8       All comands upgraded one level (steal->capture...)
        AA68-EDA8

Character Customization Codes
-----------------------------
This lets you change character stats, menu items, and equipment. Use 
before the character joins your party. The order here is a little screwy 
since it was made from an old table. Replace 'XX' with the variable that 
suites your needs. Thanks to JT for these codes.

GAME GENIE TIPS AND TRICKS
--------------------------

Walk-thru-walls 
    
The trick that is the easiest (and basically the only) one is 
the walk-thru-walls trick. There are three areas where you can 
use the code (AA90-74DD) to get out of a situation where you 
would normally have to wait or fight it out. The following 
are made possible with this code:

Narshe Moogles

At the very beginning, use the code to get out of Narshe with
Wedge and Vicks. It may not have any purpose, but it's interst-
ing.

Narshe Moogles II

When Locke and Terra are free to leave Narshe after the intro,
you should use the code to get back into Narshe and travel up
towards the esper. When you get to the screen where you would
fight Kefka later, the group will be lined up as if you were 
about to fight him. Go up to Banon and say you are ready and you 
will prepare to fight Kefka. You will have the choice of using 
these characters: Terra, Locke, and....GASP! 5 Moogles! Yes, 
Kuru, Kutan, Kupek, Kuku and Kumama have come to your rescue.
Seeing you're short of the 5 necessary characters, the Moogles 
are kind enough to fill in for them. Beat Kefka -It's hard- and 
you'll have these cute guys until the WOR (and maybe beyond)!

South Figaro Moogles

When you're in Locke's Scenario, he can leave town as a Merchant
or Soldier. Just use the code to get around the annoying guard 
who chases you at the beginning of the scenario. The only down-
side of this is Celes will have had a major makeover. She now is 
General Kutan, the Moogle! KUPO!!!

Moogle Blitzes!

Use the first Moogle Trick to get the Moogles in your party. Now, 
after doing that, go get the airship, and take it to the MagiTek
Factory. Beat it, and then put Terra, Locke and the moogle that 
replaces Edgar (Kumama) in your party. Go to the Cave where you 
fight Vargas and head toward him. When you fight Vargas, the moogle
that replaces Sabin will come to save the day! Now, when you you can
use Sabin, the moogle will be able to use blitzes! Also, after you do
this, go to the place where you meet Shadow for the first time
and name him. Then, go to Gau's Father's house and get him to join.
He will now be in the airship! :)

Take Banon!

Using the Walk-Through-Walls trick to get the Moogles, work your
way through the game to the point where you have found Relm and
Strago, and the Floating Continent has taken flight. Return to the
Returner's Hideout, and take Banon! You MUST have Terra, Locke,
Edgar, and Sabin in your party at the time. He'll join you, and
the Airship will be waiting right outside! Don't worry about losing
Locke... he'll be right back on the Airship! :) With Banon in your
party, make sure not to change your party members, or he'll
disapear. DO NOT take him with you to the Emperor's Banquet, or
he'll be stuck with Terra and Locke, and the game will freeze when
you meet Strago (there's no room in the party for him). You can't
keep him to the WOR. :( 

Gerad

Use the walk through walls codes in Figaro castle, to go down onto the
stairs and get around that anoying lever guy.
You can go down the engine room, and Gerad (Edgar), will be down there.
Use only Sabin and Celes in your party to do this, if you have others
the game will mess up. When you exit with the new edgar in your party
you will be in the World of Ruin. When you use this, you will be
stranded on the figaro continent.

Teleportation!

When you are fighting Kefka's troops in the world of balance to protect
Banon and the esper, defeat all the guards and use walk through walls
to the right of Kefka. You can walk around Narshe and still stwitch
between parties. If you go to another town and switch your other parties
will be moved around. Try to get them out of Narshe and they will be
teleported next to the town where your other parties are.

Equip All Paladin Shields

To get this trick to work, enter the GG code: AA9E-E4D8. Fight 
one battle and it will say "Curse on shield lifted." Go to your 
options screen you can equip EVERYONE with PALADIN SHIELDS IN 
EVERY CATEGORY! This even works on the relics screen! Equip each 
person with a weapon, then put P. Shields everywhere else. You 
to fight, and you'll learn Ultima much faster (depending on how 
many shields are equipped)! After fighting for a while, look at 
your stats for an even bigger surprise!

---

'Getting' Leo, Kefka, and Others

This is a special trick with many variations. I won't list it here; 
instead, go to http://www.videogamesource.com/genie/ and find the 
FF3 Code Handbook. This is very worth it for nostalgia's sake.

Meet Bosses on the Veldt! (by JonN2002)

Code: 8FA3-846D
You will encounter Colosseum-only monsters, some regular
monsters from advanced levels (Phoenix cave, Cyan's Dream,
Kefka's Tower), and mostly BOSS CHARACTERS! Yes, you can
encounter Phunbaba, all 8 dragons, both Atma Weapons,
Ultros, and Siegfried. (Get his rage if you see him!)
There is also a pretty likely chance that you will run into
Kefka in one of his many forms. However, if you begin a battle
and notice that you are Kefka himself, turn off the game,
because it will freeze when he gets his turn to fight. Very
strange! You will also run into monsters normally inaccessible
in the course of the game, such as "Colossus" and "Inferno."
When you run into them, they usually have A TON of HP and MP,
and are extremely powerful. So far, I have encountered 3 to
date. They are all boss characters, and fade when they die,
just as do bosses. Anyway, perhaps the funniest part of this
code is, you will, many times, re-enact famous past scenes
and cinema sequences, such as Kefka's killing Leo and Gestahl,
the Esper attack scene, Kefka's taking the espers in Thamasa,
Relm's sketching Ultros, ...except all will take place on the
Veldt! Even if the characters from the scene are not in your
party, it will simply show the dialogue to follow. The best
part is, when and if you do a Kefka sequence, the top member
of your party's line-up will sometimes play Kefka himself!
Yes, imagine the possibilities! I've never laughed so hard
as when I witnessed Celes killing Espers, and even Leo! By far
my favorite code in a long time.

                  PART SEVEN-Game Shark Codes
---------------------------------------------------------------

Right now the Final Fantasy Anthology has not been released in the
United States, so there obviously are no Game Shark codes available
at this time. If there is a future update, Game Shark codes WILL
be added.

        PART EIGHT-Tetsuya0's FF3 Hard Type ROM Hack
---------------------------------------------------------------

Currently under production, Tetsuya0, a denizen of AGFF (otherwise
known as alt.games.final-fantasy) is creating a patch for FF3 the 
FF3 ROM. This patch will be a must-try. The reason? It fixes one 
of the biggest shortfalls of the game: its difficulty.

The current version is available at Zophar's Domain. Below is information 
about the patch provided by Tetsuya.

By Tetsuya (tetsuya0@aol.com)

Did you ever think that Final Fantasy III (aka FF6j) was a really easy 
game? Well, I sure as hell did! IMHO, it was even easier than Final 
Fantasy VII, since your characters in Final Fantasy III/VI can become 
demi-gods towards the end of the game, especially since you have your 
Espers and stuff to gain magic spells, and stat bonuses at level ups... 
well this hack basically fixes all that and adds individuality between 
your characters! That's right, all characters aren't basically the same 
anymore! I sealed the Magic command for all but three characters! So, 
that means, only 3 characters in the game are allowed to learn it! 
Have fun, cause this game isn't going to be extremely easy any longer... 
and I've still got a hell of alot of work left to do on it!

Whats implemented (thus far)?
v1.0 2/17/99

 - All characters except Terra, Celes and Strago have had their Magic 
commands sealed.
 - Adjusted some character status. I've dumbed down Gogo ALOT (I know 
he's not very strong normally, but his mimic ability can be very cheap, 
I've slowed him down alot and brought his strength and magic power down 
a bit more too).

What I plan to implement in the future:

 - To weaken cheap-ass spells, like Ultima, Merton, Meteor etc. and 
also INCREASE their MP cost! And perhaps balance out MP costs with 
other spells (ie all the level 1 element spells cost 5 instead of 4, 
5, 6)
 - To possibly make ALL bosses and powerful normal foes resist Vanish 
magic, so you won't be able to use the super cheap-ass 
Vanish + Doom/X-Zone combo!
 - Dummy out the Economizer, Gold Hairpin and Offering relics from the 
game completely. No getting around the increased cost of Ultima this 
way, or 8 hit X-Fight!
 - Dummy out Esper Level up bonuses. Hey? It's not fair that your magic 
users will be able to gain extra stats!
 - Tweak with the Esper spell learn rates
 - Weaken the characters 'hidden' strength they gain during level ups, 
they can still become demi-gods as their levels rise higher and higher, 
even w/out Esper enhancements! (this might require ASM...)
 - Think up of more ways to make this game harder, but without making it 
impossible ;p

Prepare to have a fun experience in the Fanatics tower! The only people 
who will be able to fight are Terra, Celes, Strago and Gogo!

The rules for this current patch (until I can get things implemented):

1) Absolutely NO Vanish + X-Zone/Doom!
2) Don't equip Economizers, Gold Hairpins or Offerings (with the 
exception of the Leo scene, that is)
3) Try getting through with as little level building as possible, to 
avoid becoming demi-gods
4) Don't pull off cheap spells very often (I can't stress it enough 
since I haven't altered their strength yet).

Other things:
5) Game Genie codes are a no-no
6) Same with save game hacking!

******If ANYONE could give me some help with what I'm trying to 
implement into this hack, it would be very appreciated and you will get 
credit for this project.******
