    1. Introduction
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    For those of you who wandered here by accident and are wondering what
    Monstania is, it is a recently translated very fun game for the SNES with a
    unique battle system that you will have to see for yourself because it is hard
    to explain.  Monstania may be easy in some places, but this FAQ/Walkthrough
    will help you through the difficult times when you get stuck, as you may at
    some point or another.  I hope everyone enjoys using this FAQ and send me
    information about the game that you know and is not in here.  If you want to
    know where you can get this game, email me and ask me, because it is
    somewhat rare among the types of sites that offer it.  If you are looking for
    the translation, you can find it at http://agtp.romhack.net.
    
    Thanks to:
    
    Nathan Deren (nder3318@postoffice.uri.edu) - For pointing out that you fight
    different battles if you "support Tania" instead of "support Tia." And for
    heading the team that translated the game, of course that is more
    noteworthy.
    
    Barrett Shands (barrett@budweiser.com) - For sending in strats.
    
    Philip Mak (pmak@aaanime.net) - For sending in miscellaneous info and
    strats.

    2. Version History
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    Beta3 - Fourth release.  I improved the layout of the Skills, Items, and
    Bestiary because they looked ugly after the conversion to a new computer
    and I never did anything about them.  So anyway, basically those three
    sections are no longer an eyesore for this update. - December 14, 2002
    
    Beta2 - Third released version with an improved layout.  I had to change the
    skill table because the shortened width screwed stuff up.  Made the usual
    info additions.  If this still looks too wide, upgrade your 1995 computer and
    use a larger resolution. - July 17, 2002
    
    Beta - Second released version with various fixes and additions. - January
    13, 2001
    
    Alpha - First released version with a lot of info.  More will be added later. -

    3. Controls
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    These are what the buttons do in the game.
    
    Up: Move cursor up/Move character forward.
    Right: Move cursor right/Turn character right.
    Down: Move cursor down/Move character backwards.

    A few brief instructions for those who are having trouble (expanded later):
    
    Waiting or not doing anything while your partner walks recovers you an AP.
    Skills use up AP. You can scroll through the items in the "Equip Screen" by
    pressing up and down after selecting a category with "a."
    
    4. Character Descriptions
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    These are a short bio of each character along with my opinion on them.
    
    Fron
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Description: 16-year-old who is searching for a mysterious fairy that he saw. 
    Boyfriend of Tia and the usual adventurous type.
    
    Lich85's Opinion: Fron is your basic RPG hero and all-around fighter.  Most of
    his early skills that he learns are weak.  His only useful ones are Jump Slash,
    Dash Attack, and Kamaitachi. Even then, most of those skills are not
    powerful to kill enemies with one hit until a little past the halfway point,
    which is the best part of the skills in the first place.  He can take more
    damage than most anyone, even though he does not look like he can, so put
    him in the front and if the enemy is targeting anyone, it should be him.
    
    
    Tia
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Description: 16-year-old who travels with her boyfriend Fron searching for
    the fairy.  A little more cautious then Fron but still the adventurous type.
    
    Lich85's Opinion: I seriously underrated Tia at first.  I looked at how weak she
    was and instantly wrote her off.  However, her strength comes from her Bow
    and being able to hit enemies from far away.  Since enemies like to walk
    around randomly, you can sit there and hit them all day, eventually killing
    them.  Also, her ability to soften up monsters with her Bow before Fron
    takes them out can be a clincher at times.  Her Song skill is also great for
    softening up many monsters at a time, and Treat and Help will be very
    valuable helpers to Fron during the course of the game.
    
    Philip Mak's Opinion: I found Tia to be very powerful in several battles,
    including the first two slime battles and the sea battle on Doctor
    Pascal's island. In all of these cases, I can win the entire battle using only
    Tia, without any help from Fron because of her ability to shoot the enemies down
    from a distance before they can reach her.
    
    
    Chitta
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Description: Little girl who you meet and later find out is the fairy that you
    have been chasing. Thought to be very young and can be cryptic at times.
    
    Lich85's Opinion: Chitta is weak and almost useless except for her Blaze
    spell, which sometimes works very effectively, and sometimes not at all. 
    Obviously Chitta is the prime candidate to receive the Ribbon because of her
    spells, and she needs all the firepower she can get.  Near the end of the
    game though, Chitta can cast Blaze three times before having to recover AP,
    and by then it is a very effective spell.  So basically use Chitta to hit many
    people at once, possibly killing them if you can do it twice, or let Fron finish
    them off.
    
    Philip Mak's Opinion:  Her "Shining Arrow" spell (translated as "Shine Arrow")
    came in very useful, especially against the Bats. The great points about
    ShineArrow are:
    * only costs 7 AP to cast
    * hits all enemies in a straight line (even if Partner is in the way)
    * always kills Bats in one hit
    
    
    Morin
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Description: 255-year-old elf who you meet in the Forest of Confusion.  He is
    a harpist who offers to lead you out since you are lost.
    
    Lich85's Opinion: Morin's regular harp attack packs little punch.  It is his
    skills that are worth looking at.  His Attack Song is about as effective as
    Tia's Sing (even though it costs about twice as much in AP) and his Relax Song
    recovers more AP than any other skill. His Heal Song is like a dual Recover,
    which is very handy.  Still, in my opinion those qualities do not redeem him
    and Morin is a blot to all adventurers everywhere.
    
    
    Mikey
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Description: The stereotypical 12-year-old kid with an attitude.  Lives in the
    Ruins and offers to lead you out since you are lost.
    
    Lich85's Opinion: Mikey has a high luck and a high agility, which basically
    means that he will almost always connect and it will be a critical hit.  Add
    that to an Attack rating almost as high as Fron's and a decent defense and
    you have yourself a very solid fighter.  But wait!  He can also range attack
    like Tia!  It may only be three spaces but you take what you can get.  If I
    could, I would probably use this guy as my main character instead of Fron,
    because he is the best of both worlds (or Fron and Tia's best qualities
    combined).
    
    
    Marina
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Description: An 18-year-old girl who supposedly is attractive but later turns
    into a witch (figuratively speaking).  Works at a restaurant in Maberia.
    
    Lich85's Opinion: She is a cleaning lady for a restaurant, what did you
    expect?  She usually gets killed in one or maybe two hits if she is lucky.  She
    does almost no damage and her skills are all useless except for Help and
    Treat.  Just put her in the back, hope she stays alive, and be thankful
    that you only have to use her once.
    
    
    Marx
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Description: 30-year-old brother of Tania who is a traveler.  Very big blonde
    guy.  Carries a hammer around and is not afraid to use it.
    
    Lich85's Opinion: This guy is awesome.  He does much more damage than
    Fron, and although he misses more often than not, when he connects the
    Sandworm feels it!  His defense is only average, but his HP is very high, so
    you do not have to use Recover much because it gains back so much HP.  And
    speaking of skills, every time he does a normal attack he gains back one AP
    just like if he was waiting!  Overall, if Marx just had better agility he could
    be by far the best character in the entire game.  Unfortunately, he must remain
    in the three-way tie with Fron and Mikey.
    
    
    Tia's Grandfather
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Description: Senile but brilliant old man.  Invents many useful contraptions
    thought to be harnessed by the spirits, but obviously are not.
    
    Lich85's Opinion: A senile strange old man.  Hit him in the Laboratory when
    you have the chance, you will not regret it, and watch as he takes damage as
    not even Black Curtain could!
    
    
    Tania
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Description: Twenty-something-year-old brother of Marx.  Girlfriend of
    Barambat.  Fights for the cause that she believes in.
    
    Lich85's Opinion: She is weak.  Even though she is a sidekick, her close range
    attack is pathetic, and her Thunder spell takes a turn to charge up so you
    can run circles around her forever.  If she could not summon Poison Ghosts
    the second time around, someone would have to complain on how easy it is to
    defeat her.  Anyway, just have fun beating her up.
    
    
    Barambat
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Description: Boyfriend of Tania.  Age is unknown.  Fights for the cause that
    he believes in which is not revealed until the end of the game.
    
    Lich85's Opinion: For how cool this guy looks, his simple slash attack is a big
    let down.  Since he is slow and has no special attacks, you can have a field
    day with this guy. I would not even want to fight as this person because he is
    so pathetic.  The only reason I would want to is because of how cool he looks,
    but that would get old very quick.  Once again, just have fun beating this guy
    up.

    Battle 1
    Controlling: Fron
    Enemies: 1 Kobold, 1 Kobold
    Items: Cure-All Received Afterward
    
    Stand in front of Tia and hit the Kobold when he comes to you.  Very simple. 
    He will usually hit for about 10HP damage so be ready to use Recover when
    needed.  If Fron does not have enough AP and needs to use Recover, run
    away from the Kobold until he is far away enough for you to hit the "y"
    button enough times to get enough AP back to use Recover and still not be
    attacked. This is a basic strategy that you will be using multiple times
    throughout this game.  Defeat the second Kobold in the same way as the
    first.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Road
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 2
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: 10 Slimes
    Items: No Items Received
    
    Use Tia's "Sing" skill right away and then retreat backwards with Fron (with
    Tia joined up of course) until Tia gets enough AP to use "Sing" twice more. 
    After this just let the Slimes come to you and you can almost always kill
    them all in one hit.  Add this to the fact that you can move twice for every
    one of their movements and you have an even easier battle than the first
    one, because you will probably never get hit.
    
    Philip Mak's Strategy:
    Pair up. Run around with Tia shooting arrows at the slimes. They move slow
    enough that she can kill all of them before they can reach her (if she moves
    back as necessary).
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 3
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: Giant Slime
    Items: Cure-All Received Afterward
    
    This battle is even simpler and easier than the first two (if that is even
    possible).  Just select Tia and then shoot the Giant Slime with your Bow while
    he runs around randomly and you stay a safe enough distance away not to
    get hit.  Once again you get two movements for his every one and so you
    should have no excuse if you actually get hit at least once in this battle.
    
    Philip Mak's Strategy:
    
    There is a safe spot in the leftmost corner of the screen; the Giant Slime
    can't reach it because it's too big to pass through the trees. I put Fron in
    there, then separate Tia and have her run around shooting.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Forest
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 4
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: 4 Tiles Puzzle, 3 Kobolds Then Infinity
    Items: 2 Cure-Alls In The Area, 3 Wonder Leaves Received Afterward
    
    The first thing you should do is get the two Cure-Alls in the right and upper
    left corners, then put Fron on the upper right tile and Tia on the lower left
    tile.  After a short dialogue, put Tia in front of the doorway, then three
    Kobolds will appear.  More Kobolds will start vomiting from the trees as the
    battle ensues.  Situate yourself on the square between Tia and the Kobolds,
    and if everything goes well they will only attack from that direction and you
    will get to fight one at a time.  Use basic battle tactics here, kill the Kobold
    and Recover when necessary.  The Kobolds are weaker this time around
    because of your higher level.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Sealed Cave
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 5
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: 2 Bats, 2 Bats And 1 Goblin, 2 Bats And 1 Goblin
    Items: Wooden Shield And Cure-All Received Afterward
    
    This is a set of three battles against basically the same opponents.  In the
    first one allow each Bat to come to you and then kill each easily. 
    Afterwards, use Recover until you are at Max HP and then use the "y" button
    until you are at Max AP.  Use this again after the second part.  In the second
    and third parts, for each step you take, notice what moves, and if only one
    or two of the enemies move, then let them come to you and kill them before
    you take on the second and third or only third enemies.  By using that divide
    and conquer strategy, this battle should be a walk in the park.  The only
    things that are unusual is that a Bat can move two spaces for each of your
    one, and the Goblin can only move one for each of your two, but can knock
    you back a space when he hits you unless something is behind you.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 6
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: 2 Mummies, 3 Mummies
    Items: No Items Received
    
    Yet another battle that should not be too difficult.  After tripping the first
    switch, move down one space to the Mummy and then try to kill it with Fron
    before the Mummy behind you gets within two spaces of Tia where it can hit
    her.  After killing the first Mummy, move away from the second and kill it
    with Tia's Arrows, laughing as it pathetically tries to catch you.  Mummies
    are slow and move only one space for your every two.  The next part is a
    little more complicated because you might actually get hit but should still be
    a breeze.  Wait for the Mummy below Fron to pop out, kill it, then run up and
    kill the other one below Fron.  After that either use Tia to shoot at the
    Mummy above and then walk to the exit.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 7
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: 4 Tiles Puzzle, 3 Mummies, 1 Mummy
    Items: Iron Arrows, Defend Ring, And Cure-All Received Afterward
    
    And now for the grand finale of this dungeon, which features a puzzle of the
    simplest nature if you know what "Check" does.  Have Fron go up to each
    stone lying around, use "Check" to pick it up, and then walk up to a tile and
    use "Put" to place it onto a tile.  Three Mummies will pop out after two
    stones are placed.  Kill them by sniping or walk up to them and slash them
    with Fron if you are getting bored with the covert tactics, either way it is
    easy. After the third stone is placed the last enemy and final horrific
    creature of the dungeon is revealed: a single stupid Mummy.  Kill him if you
    feel like it, place the last stone on the last tile, and watch the dialogue. 
    On another note, you can actually pick up all the stones and place them on
    the tiles without you or the Mummies ever hitting each other, so that is a
    quickie way to win this battle.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Shinar: House
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 8
    Controlling: Fron And Tia (And Chitta)
    Enemies: 2 Earth Spirits (And Tania)
    Items: None
    
    Now if you have just been slacking your way with strategies so far, get ready
    to die, and quickly. If you have been working on strategies, good for you, but
    this will still be one of the most difficult fights and the hardest so far.  The
    first thing to do is Tia should snipe as much as she can at the Earth Spirits
    before they corner you and force Fron to confront them both.  Try to use
    Chitta as a decoy, because he/she/it does not have to be conscious to win
    this battle, and if you can kill an Earth Spirit by going 1on1 while another is
    knocking the little kid senseless, ignore your conscience and go for it.  Try to
    stay away from Tania because she will knock you for around 12HP damage if
    you get on a space next to her.  If you are forced into a 2on1 situation, you
    can still win, just keep targeting one, using Recover and Help/Treat when
    necessary, and running away to build up more AP if needed.  After killing both
    of the Earth Spirits the battle ends.  And before I forget, both the Earth
    Spirits move at one space for your every two, the only advantage you have.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Here the path splits into two parts.  If you decided to "Support Tia," then
    your next two battles will be in the Forest and you should keep reading. 
    However, if you decided to "Support Tania," then your next two battles will be
    in the Cave and you should skip down there to the next set of Battles 9-10.  I
    personally prefer the Cave, but that is only because the Battle 9 for the
    Cave is much less difficult than the Battle 9 for the Forest.  Both the
    Condor's Eye and Pendant are pretty useless so do not make a decision
    based on those two items.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Forest
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 9
    Controlling: Fron And Chitta
    Enemies: 6 Big Rats
    Items: 2 Wonder Leaves And 2 Magic Berries Received Afterward
    
    This can also be a difficult battle.  But there is a surefire way not to lose
    (unless you mess up very badly).  At the start of the battle, take control of
    Chitta and move her into the corner by the tree, or two spaces right and one
    space back.  Fron will be in front of her and Chitta is now invincible because
    there is no way to attack her.  From here, attack with Fron and use the
    Blaze or Shine Arrow skills with Chitta when needed.  If Fron dies just blast
    the remaining Big Rats with Thunder and then bring him back with a Magic
    Berry.  Either way, there will be a single Big Rat hiding in the upper left that
    you should be sure to kill.  Big Rats can also move two spaces for your every
    one.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 10
    Controlling: Fron And Chitta
    Enemies: 1 Giant Spider And 2 Spiders
    Items: Condor Eye, Long Sword, And Cure-All Received Afterward
    
    Another pathetic boss.  You can do this battle two ways: the first way is with
    Chitta and Blaze, and the second way is completely with Fron.  In the first
    way, walk right up to the Giant Spider until you are two spaces away from it,
    then use Blaze.  This should knock it for 35HP damage three times, or 105HP
    damage.  Very nice.  Next, get Chitta out of there and then kill the two small
    spiders with Fron while they walk around randomly, making sure to keep
    Chitta a safe distance away.  After that, get Chitta's AP back up to 20, do
    the Blaze one space away from the Giant Spider again, and he goes boom. 
    The other way is started the same way: walk up to the Giant Spider and hit it
    with Blaze, but then let Chitta die.  Now, with Fron, walk around and kill
    the spiders with your newfound speed because Chitta died.  They should not
    be able to catch you and you can build up your AP easily because of your
    speed and their randomness.  After you kill the two Spiders use skills on the
    Giant Spider.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Cave
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 9
    Controlling: Fron And Chitta
    Enemies: 3 Bats, 2 Bats And 1 Spider, 1 Bat And 1 Spider
    Items: 2 Wonder Leaves And 2 Magic Berries Received Afterward
    
    This battle is much easier than the one you would have been forced to do in
    the Forest.  Just walk up to the Bats with Fron and kill them with one hit. 
    Chitta's Blaze will only make the battle even quicker.  The Spiders may take
    three or so hits, but they come with only one or two bats so it is really a
    joke.  Just dispatch them in any way that you see fit and keep Chitta out of
    harm's way.  Use the narrow passages to help Fron take the enemies 1on1. 
    If you use basic strategies, this battle will be over quickly.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 10
    Controlling: Fron And Chitta
    Enemies: 1 Giant Spider And 2 Spiders
    Items: Pendant, Long Sword, And Cure-All Received Afterward
    
    Another pathetic boss.  You can do this battle two ways: the first way is with
    Chitta and Blaze, and the second way is completely with Fron.  In the first
    way, walk right up to the Giant Spider until you are two spaces away from it,
    then use Blaze.  This should knock it for 35HP damage three times, or 105HP
    damage.  Very nice.  Next, get Chitta out of there and then kill the two small
    spiders with Fron while they walk around randomly, making sure to keep
    Chitta a safe distance away.  After that, get Chitta's AP back up to 20, do
    the Blaze one space away from the Giant Spider again, and he goes boom. 
    The other way is started the same way: walk up to the Giant Spider and hit it
    with Blaze, but then let Chitta die.  Now, with Fron, walk around and kill the
    spiders with your newfound speed because Chitta died.  They should not be
    able to catch you and you can build up your AP easily because of your speed
    and their randomness.  After you kill the two Spiders use skills on the Giant
    Spider.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Now both paths converge with you making another decision as to which path
    to take.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Here the path splits into two parts.  If you chose to go into the Forest Of
    Confusion, continue reading, but if you decided to bypass it and head towards
    the Ancient Ruins, then go to the next set of Battles 11-13.  I personally
    would go to the Ancient Ruins for three reasons.  1.  Mikey is much better
    than Morin.  2. The boss of the Ancient Ruins is much easier than the boss of
    the Forest Of Confusion.  3. You can get more items than in the Forest Of
    Confusion, and the Ribbon is only available in the Ancient Ruins, you cannot
    get it in the Forest Of Confusion. However, you can only get the Life Ring in
    the Forest of Confusion, and that item is much more helpful to Fron than the
    Ribbon is to Chitta, so think over both decisions carefully.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Forest Of Confusion
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 11
    Controlling: Fron And Morin
    Enemies: 14 Big Rats With 8 Starting
    Items: Magic Berry, Life Ring, Leather Armor, And Very Weird Stick Received
    Afterward
    
    They tried to make the enemy intelligence smarter for this one, but ended up
    messing up badly. The Big Rats will now wait for you to come to them and get
    the first hit instead of coming to you and letting you get the first hit.  So
    they will just sit there and wait for you to come to them, two spaces away. 
    You have probably figured out how to kill them by now.  Either use Fron's
    Sonic Boom to lay waste to them as they are immobile, or use Morin's Attack
    Song a few times so that one Sonic Boom will dispatch each.  Either way,
    range attacks are the trump for this battle.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 12
    Controlling: Tia And Chitta
    Enemies: ? Slimes
    Items: ? Wonder Leaves
    
    Just walk around to the various grass clumps and "Check" them with Tia.  I
    think the items may be placed randomly but I am not sure.  Some clumps
    contain Slimes, some contain Wonder Leaves, and one contains Chitta's
    treasure.  A slime starts out from the right in this battle.
    
    Philip Mak's Strategy:
    
    The Slimes here do 1 HP of damage to Tia, and she can kill them in one hit.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 13
    Controlling: Fron And Morin
    Enemies: 1 Green Eater And Almost Always 3 Tentacles
    Items: Silver Arrows, Cure-All, Long Bow, And Fairy Ring Received Afterward
    
    Another weak bo. . . wait a second.  This one is actually tough!  It is mainly
    tough because the three tentacles are more than a match for you
    individually, and they just love to gang up on you.  Add that to the fact that
    the Green Eater has a four space range attack and you have got yourself
    a tough battle indeed.  Now this is the way I beat him, but I would not
    necessarily recommend it.  First use Morin's Attack Song until you are bored,
    recovering AP as much as you want because they are blocked off from him,
    and make sure he is in the upper left area where the grass clumps form a
    sort of triangle with a space in between.  Next, take Fron all the way over to
    the right and jump over a grass clump.  Now get five spaces below the Green
    Eater.  Use Dash Attack here, then Morin's Relax Song until Fron recovers
    enough AP to Dash Attack again. If you need to wait, do so, and hope the
    tentacles do not come over to Fron and are distracted by Morin. Repeat until
    the Green Eater dies.  If Fron dies, use Morin's Attack Song to bring the
    tentacles back over, recover his AP all the way, use a Magic Berry on Fron,
    and continue Dash Attacking.
    
    Philip Mak's Strategy:
    
    The area that you start inside is surrounded by grass. The enemies cannot
    enter it unless you cut the grass with Fron. I kept Morin inside the safe area,
    and had Fron "jump" out. I had him run directly to the right side of the Green
    Eater, stand adjacent to it and slash at it. In this position, only the Green
    Eater and a tentacle behind him can hit Fron. Have Fron use "recover" as
    necessary. If he dies, Morin can use Heal Song to revive him, and Morin has
    unlimited time to recharge AP, while the Green Eater cannot heal.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Ancient Ruins
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 11
    Controlling: Fron And Mikey
    Enemies: 3 Goblins, 2 Goblins, 2 Goblins, 2 Goblins
    Items: Magic Berry Received Beforehand; Ribbon, Leather Armor, Very Weird,
    And Cure-All
    Received Afterward
    
    Yes, those are the same Goblins from the Sealed Cave.  Since Fron is now
    more powerful and you have Mikey throwing a Boomerang at almost the same
    Attack rating as Fron with a high critical hit rate, you can just delegate Mikey
    to one opening and Fron to the other.  As a Goblin comes out, kill it, then
    switch to the other person to kill theirs.  You should be able to win this
    battle very easily because the Goblins are much weaker than Fron or Mikey.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 12
    Controlling: Tia And Chitta
    Enemies: 1 Giant Bear
    Items: Cure-All And 2 Magic Berries Received Afterward
    
    This is a very annoying battle and shows just how poor the enemy intelligence
    is.  You have to lure the Giant Bear into falling into a hole.  This is done by
    getting him to walk onto the two spaces directly below where Fron fell in. 
    First, send either Tia or Chitta to the bottom to walk around and try to get
    the Giant Bear to go right.  Next lure him up, then left and down a little, then
    left some more and hopefully onto where he should fall in.  However, since
    the Giant Bear instead seems to prefer walking around in circles than chasing
    you, this is easier said than done.  So just walk around in front of it until it
    starts heading in the right direction, then back off a little and continue
    trying to trick it into falling into the hole.
    
    Philip Mak's Strategy:
    
    If you have Tia and Chitta both stand on the space that the bear is supposed
    to fall in, they will fall and it's Game Over.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 13
    Controlling: Fron And Mikey
    Enemies: 1 Giant Bear And 3 Goblins With 0 Starting
    Items: 2 Wonder Leaves, Silver Arrows, Long Bow, And Fairy Ring Received
    Afterward
    
    The first thing you should know is that if you went into the Forest Of
    Confusion, you would have fought a boss ten times as hard as this one, so
    pat yourself on the back for your discernment/luck.  The first thing you
    should is Pair Up, and be sure to control Mikey.  Now get just to the left of
    the two blocks that have one space between them and are lined up vertically
    along the central upper side (maybe a little to the left).  Now wait for the
    three Goblins to appear, and destroy them easily with Mikey's Boomerang. 
    Now turn to the right and hopefully the bear will be walking around in circles. 
    I have gotten this to work every time I have played this game.  Just stand
    one space to the left of the space between the two blocks and throw the
    Boomerang at the Giant Bear on the other side walking around in circles. 
    Fron can stand one space to the left of Mikey or wherever you feel like
    putting him.  If the Giant Bear suddenly has a burst of inspiration and tries to
    attack you, just go to the other side and repeat.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Now both paths converge at Maberia with Battle 14.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Maberia: Restaurant
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 14
    Controlling: Fron
    Enemies: Tiles Puzzle
    Items: No Items Received
    
    Of the three puzzles where you sweep the tiles, this one is in the middle of
    difficulty.  There will probably be more than one way to solve these puzzles,
    but here is the one I used for this puzzle: left, left, left, down, down, down,
    right, up, right, up, right, down, right, up, up, right, right, right, down,
    left, down, right, down, down, down, down, down, left, up, up, up, left, up,
    left, left, down, left, left, left, down, down, down, right, right, up, left,
    up, right, right, down, right, down, right, up, up, left, and up.
    
    Philip Mak's Note:
    
    Someone should input the puzzle into a computer algorithm to find the
    shortest path crosses every space exactly once. :) I'm joking, sort of.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 15
    Controlling: Fron
    Enemies: Tiles Puzzle
    Items: No Items Received
    
    This one is by far the easiest to solve out of the three.  Once again here is
    the solution that I used: left, left, left, down, down, down, right, down, left,
    down, right, down, down, right, right, up, up, left, up, right, right, right,
    down, down, right, down, right, up, up,, left, up, right, up, left, up, right,
    up, up, left, left, down, down, down, left, left, left, up, right, up, left, and
    left.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 16
    Controlling: Fron
    Enemies: Tiles Puzzle
    Items: No Items Received
    
    This one is the toughest out of three because the solution requires you to
    use different strategies than the first two.  However, I was still able to solve
    it on my first try for some strange reason.  Here is the solution that I used:
    right, down, right, up, right, right, down, down, down, down, down, down, down,
    left, left, left, up, right, up, right, up, up, left, down, left, down, left,
    down, left, down, left, left, up, up, up, up, up, up, up,, right, right, down,
    down, left, down, down, right, up, right, up, and right.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Maberia: Graveyard Mountain
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 17
    Controlling: Fron And Marina
    Enemies: 6 Poison Bats With 2 Staring And 4 Super Goblins With 2 Starting
    Items: Cure-All And 2 Wonder Leaves Received Afterward
    
    This is a rather nasty fight, if you do not use Marina much.  Start out with
    Fron in the lower right corner with Marina behind him.  All throughout the
    fight try to use Marina's Help as much as possible, because then you can get
    Fron's AP into the constant 30-40s range where he can use Recover and
    Jump Slashes as much as he wants.  Use Help and Recover during any break
    in the fighting.  Then let the Poison Bats (which go two spaces for your every
    one) come to you and kill them with Jump Slash or normal slashes followed by
    Recover.  Either way, after the first short skirmish have Marina keep using
    Help on Fron until the next arrival of Poison Bats come.  Kill those, then
    prepare for the Super Goblins (which go one space for your every two) to
    arrive by using Help on Fron more.  After the first Super Goblin arrives and
    you go 1on1 with it, two Poison Bats will appear and be very annoying.  So try
    to take out the Super Goblins quickly (the second set will stay in the middle
    of the Highlands) and then smack up the Poison Bats.  After this there is
    just the trivial matter of destroying the last two Super Goblins at leisure,
    then move Fron and Marina up to the end of the route.  For this battle and
    the next one I think you only have to get both characters to the end of the
    route and not actually have to defeat all the enemies.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 18
    Controlling: Fron And Chitta
    Enemies: 4 Poison Bats With 2 Staring And 4 Super Goblins
    Items: 2 Magic Berries Received Afterward
    
    They take away Marina and give you an improved Chitta and to compensate
    for this on the enemy side they make you fight. . . less?  I guess I should not
    complain but sometimes I wonder about the people who designed the battles. 
    This is a joke battle.  Take Chitta and use Shine Arrow to kill the two Poison
    Bats when they are in a row.  Next use Blaze on the Super Goblins, and if
    Chitta starts hurting, pull Fron up from below to help out, since he should be
    fresh and pulling him up allows Chitta to recover AP, but make sure that
    Chitta does not get hit while Fron travels up.  After dispatching these, walk
    over to the end to face the last resistance: two Poison Bats.  Blaze them,
    laugh at them and slash them, whatever, just kill them and finish the battle.

    Battle 19
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: Barambat And Tania
    Items: No Items Received
    
    For those who fought Green Eater this is a welcome break.  For those who
    fought the Bear, well you have another extremely weak boss battle to fight. 
    Just move Fron to the right and up towards Tania and get next to her.  Start
    slashing her.  You will do around ten times the damage she does to you, and
    Barambat (who moves at one space for your every two) will walk around
    randomly seemingly heedless of your presence.  This is one of those battles
    you can fight with your eyes closed and still pull off a considerable margin of
    victory.  I do not know if you can beat Barambat, because the battle will stop
    after you defeat Tania.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 20
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: 3 Ghosts And 5 Zombies
    No Items Received
    
    First off, make sure Tia has the Silver Arrows and Long Bow.  Now she should
    be able to kill the Ghosts (who attack randomly) with one hit and the Zombies
    (who move one space for your every two) with two hits.  This makes the
    battle much easier.  Now just walk around shooting and killing stuff while
    using Recover when needed.  Unless you get surrounded, you should do just
    fine.

    Maritime: Boat
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 21
    Controlling: Fron And Tia (And 2 Sailors And 1 Captain)
    Enemies: 6 Pirates Then Infinity
    Items: No Items Received
    
    Just to let you know, those two Sailors are going to die very quickly.  As far
    as I know though, the Captain cannot die and will keep pounding away for
    much damage at the Pirates.  Not that you need him anyway, just sit there
    and kill the Pirates, shoot them with Tia if they are too far away or slash
    them with a skill maybe here and there with Fron until the Captain announces
    that you are surrendering.  It would be impossible to win anyway the way they
    pour out of their cabin, so just play the survival game.  It is, however,
    possible to fight your way onto their deck, which raises the question of why
    not going over there, dropping the plank, and sailing away.
    
    Philip Mak's Strategy:
    
    The programmers did not design this battle very logically. After a certain
    number of turns pass, you will lose, no matter how well you're doing! Take a
    look at the attached pirates.gif image. I wiped the pirates off my deck, then
    went over to take over THEIR ship... and our incompetent captain surrenders!
    I started out by having Fron do a Kamaitachi, then Tia do a Time Stop. Fron
    can then kill the remaining pirates with one hit each (two in a few cases).
    Then he can stand on the gang plank, forcing the pirates to come at him one
    at a time (they cannot damage Fron faster than Tia can "Help" him to
    "Recover"); at this point it would be possible to hold them off forever. For
    fun, I tried to see how far I could get onto the enemy ship. By using "restore
    AP" items liberally, as well as Fron's Kamaitachi (generally, two Kamaitachi
    will kill a whole group of pirates) and Tia's Time Stop, I managed to fight as
    far as you see in pirates.gif (deck cleared of pirates, my own sailors
    storming their deck, only two pirates alive). It's not worth wasting all the
    restore AP items since you're just going to lose anyway, though.

    Maritime: Pirates' Boat
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 22
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: 4 Pirates
    Items: Leather Armor, Power Ring, Magic Arrows, Broad Sword, And Leather
    Shield Found  In
    A Pile Of Equipment Afterwards
    
    If play a lot of games, or even the average amount, you will be familiar with
    this scenario: get by the guards without being seen.  Here is how to do it:
    first select Fron and go up, up, right, up, up, up, left, left, left, up, up,
    up, left, left, left, left, left, left, up, wait, up, right, right, up, up, up,
    and left.  You should now be finished with Fron so switch over to Tia.  With her
    go up, up, up, right, up, up, up, left, left, left, up, up, wait until the guard
    on the right gets to the space up and to the left of you (wait 6 or 7 times),
    up, left, left, left, left, left, wait, up, wait, up, right, right, up, up, up,
    and left to finish the level.

    Maritime: Raft
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 23
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: 8 Kraken Tentacles (And Kraken)
    Items: No Items Received
    
    There is seriously something wrong with the boss battles in this game.  This
    is, once again, a sadistically easy boss battle.  The Kraken Tentacles will
    wander around, eventually coming up to you if you are on the edge, and then
    get hit by you, and for some stupid reason instead of attacking they duck
    under the water, only to come back and get smacked again.  Repeat.  The
    only thing that makes this from being an outright joke is that Tia's arrows
    get stopped by the driftwood and 2 Kraken Tentacles will appear from under
    the raft, one in the upper left and another in the right.  However, if you shoot
    the Tentacles until one pops up from under the raft and quickly Jump Slash it
    with Fron who is waiting there hopefully, that should be no problem at all. 
    Shoot with Tia from the middle of the raft, slash with Fron, it makes no
    difference, either way the cowardly Tentacles have no chance.  You do not have
    to kill the Kraken, just his Tentacles.
    
    Philip Mak's Strategy:
    
    More specifically, you can't kill the Kraken.

    Battle 24
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: 8 Bucket Robots
    Items: No Items Received
    
    Finally, a decent battle.  The main strategy to use here is shoot a robot with
    Tia so that it starts moving and comes to you, then kill it with Fron's Jump
    Slashes or keep sniping with Tia.  Either way, as long as you take it slowly and
    make them come to you in groups of ones and twos, you should have no
    problem at all.  Just make sure you are not caught off guard by their ability
    to knock you back a space.  On an interesting note, you can attack Tia's
    Grandfather with Fron's slashes or shooting with Tia, but the battle ends
    once you get Tia on a space next to her Grandfather.  And no, you cannot kill
    the Grandfather (or he has a miraculous amount of HP).
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Pascal Island: Beach
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 25
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: 8 Sea Bugs
    Items: No Items Received
    
    This right here is the toughest battle in the entire game and a dead end for
    many people.  I had to try several times before someone told me what Sing
    did which made this battle easier, but still a challenge nonetheless.  What
    many people forget to do is equip the great stuff you get after escaping
    from the Pirate Ship, so be absolutely sure to do that.  If you have
    not already, I would recommend equipping Fron with the Life Ring and Tia with
    the Fairy Ring.  You cannot kill the Sea Bugs, hitting them only makes them
    flip over.  So here is a detailed way of stopping the Sea Bugs.  First use Tia's
    Sing and move Fron three spaces from the left border and down the beach
    until Tia's AP goes back to its max.  Next use Tia's Sing again and switch to
    Fron to see when the Sea Bugs flip back over.  When they do, use Tia's Sing
    for the last time you are allowed.  Now begins the real battle, and be thankful
    for your great headstart.  The keys to victory here will be Fron's Kamaitachi
    and Tia's Confuse and Aim.  Fron should be in front of about four Sea
    Bugs.  Use Kamaitachi to keep them on their backs.  Use Tia's Confuse when
    the three Sea Bugs in front of her are lined up in a row, targeting the middle
    one.  A Sea Bug will sneak up on the far right, but after using Confuse, Tia's
    Aim will stop it in its tracks.  Repeat this until it says you are finished.  If
    you want to move back, you should instead let a Sea Bug bump you back,
    saving you time.  You may need to use a Cure-All or Wonder Leaf on Fron
    because Kamaitachi is expensive.  Overall, if you know what you are doing,
    this might be a small challenge, but if you expect to just roll over this battle
    without some strategy, you are in for a surprise.
    
    Philip Mak's Strategy:
    
    Would you believe that I can win this battle with Tia alone, without even using
    *any* special abilities? The trick is to equip Tia with the Magic Arrows that
    pass through enemies to also hit the ones behind them. Simply get the sea
    bugs lined up in a row, and keep shooting them so that they can't get back
    up. (See attached seabugs.gif for a demonstration.)

    Desert
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 26
    Controlling: Fron
    Enemies: 6 Quicksand Bugs
    Items: Power Ring And 2 Cure Cactus Received Afterward
    
    This is another fight where you fight an enemy one at a time and can wait as
    long as you want between fights to get your AP back up to max.  You walk
    down the narrow passageway, encountering sometimes Quicksand Bugs along
    the way.  There is one in the middle at the beginning, then left, and then
    right, and there is one at the right at the end, but besides that I cannot
    remember exactly where the other two were.  I believe one may be at the
    mid-left area near the central-lower area.  Kill them if you meet one with a
    slash and a Jump Slash.  Then Recover between clashes.
    
    Philip Mak's Strategy:
    
    I don't think I needed to fight 6. I used Fron's "Jump" to move around instead
    of walking, so that he didn't trigger as many Quicksand Bugs. I haven't
    verified this for sure, so I may be wrong.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 27
    Controlling: Fron And Marx
    Enemies: 6 Sandworm Parts (And A Sandworm Head)
    Items: 2 Rage Cacti And 2 Defense Cacti Received Afterward
    
    Marx flat out rocks.  It is such a shame you can only use him for this battle. 
    First off, his Attack is over 100, so just walk right up to the Sandworm and
    hit it with Fron behind you so you do not get pushed back.  His Defense may
    be a little lacking, but since he recovers an AP for every time he attacks and
    not just waits (I am not lying)(Actually the "AP recover with an attack"
    seems to be a trick that works only under circumstances I am not sure of),
    you will have more than enough to use Recover as much as you want, and he
    recovers quite a lot of HP because of his high max.  Overall it is yet another
    easy boss fight, and even easier if you are situated so as not to be knocked
    back.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Tower Of The Desert
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 28
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: Infinity Water Gels (And Undina)
    Items: No Items Received
    
    The first thing I should say is that you cannot damage Undina as far as I
    know so do not even try.  After killing quite a lot of Water Gels (and maybe
    walking over to the impeding statue) Marx will come and remove the statue,
    allowing you to continue on.  But before you do that, you will have to survive
    the attacks of the Water Gels (who move at one space for your every two). 
    Tia's Magic Arrows' ability to go through enemies and hit everyone in a row
    will be extremely useful here.  I have hit the maximum five in a row during
    this battle.  Just do not get surrounded and you will be fine.  If you do, use
    Fron to Jump Slash and kill one, then escape quickly.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 29
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: Switches Puzzle
    Items: No Items Received
    
    The switch you are looking for is the one that is different colored and in the
    lower left.  Now head over to the stairs in the upper left without touching the
    most upper left switch, which reverts the stairs back to its inaccessible
    form.  Very simple huh?
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 30
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: 8 Snakes
    Items: No Items Received
    
    The Snakes move one space for your every two.  They can be killed in two
    hits by Fron.  You should be able to just let them come to you, hit them
    twice, then kill the next one as they keep coming.  They seem to lack the
    intelligence to surround you, but if they do, it should not be that much of a
    problem because of stuff like Whirl Slash and Tia's Treat and Help. There is
    no real strategy to this battle, just kill them and move on.
    
    Philip Mak's Strategy:
    
    You don't even have to kill them; just reach the stairway on the other side of
    the room.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 31
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: Tania And Almost Always 5 Poison Ghosts
    Items: Cure-All And Chain Armor Received Afterward
    
    The first time I did this I let Fron die and beat Tania with Tia.  The second
    and easier time I let Tia die and killed Tania with Fron.  Either way one person
    makes this fight much easier.  Start off by having Tia use Magic Sword on
    Fron, then have Fron move down one, wait, then move to the right of Tania. 
    Slash her, get knocked backwards, and then use Dash Attack (or Jump Slash
    if she missed).  She will get knocked over, come back up, and then have a
    Thunder skill at her disposal.  The first time it will hit automatically, but
    from then on it will require a turn to charge up and will hit wherever you were
    when she was charging up.  Now use Dash Attack again and then Recover.  Now
    walk up to her, slash her once or twice, and it will all be over.  Note that the
    Poison Ghosts sap away your AP, so be prepared for that, it is really nasty. 
    Another way to do this is to walk up to her, Jump Slash, and if she fails to
    knock you back slash her, then repeat when she revives.

    Forest
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 32
    Controlling: Fron And Chitta
    Enemies: 1 Power Bear
    Items: 2 Wonder Leaves And 2 Magic Berries Received Afterward
    
    This bear is packed.  But like all Bears, he cannot move through an area only
    one space wide.  Use some spells or whatever you want on him, then retreat
    to an area surrounded by a few trees and two stones in the lower central
    area.  The Power Bear cannot come into this area and will simply roam
    around outside.  After charging up and healing up inside the sanctuary, come
    back out, hit him with skills, and then retreat again.  A somewhat difficult
    fight if you do not know about the safe area, another easy boss fight (I
    sound like a broken record) if you know about the safe area.  Speaking of the
    safe area, the tree on the right there can be walked right through.  Just a
    small bug that was failed to be found by the testers.
    
    Philip Mak's Strategy:
    
    Those "cats" that keep running around will always walk straight ahead unless
    you're blocking them. They cannot attack, and die in one hit.
    
    Elliott's Strategy:
    
    I stumbled onto a very quick way to win Battle 32.  Just use Chitta's Shine
    Arrow.  It hits the bear 4 times for about 45 damage, meaning it will only
    take 4-5 hits to beat.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Snowt
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 33
    Controlling: Fron
    Enemies: 17 Snow Spirits with 8 Starting
    Items: No Items Received
    
    This could be a real nasty battle if you forget to equip Fron with the Chain
    Armor or waste it on Tia.  Otherwise, just follow some basic strategies and
    you will be fine.  First, move Fron to the far right side where two Snow
    Spirits already are while staying out of their rows thereby dodging their
    Freeze and Punch attacks.  Once over there, get in a corner and be ready to
    face one or two Snow Spirits at a time.  Fron may need to Recover often
    since they may seem to swarm, but actually only a maximum of four will stay
    and the others will hop back to the upper part of the battle.  You will be able
    to recover AP once you defeat the Snow Spirits and more are on their way. 
    After a while, if no Snow Spirits appear to be coming, check your Sub-Screen
    Map.  If the only two Snow Spirits left are in the upper right corner, then
    start making a mad dash for the pathway to the house in the central area of
    the battle.  Stand next to the main road so that now only one Snow Spirit can
    attack Fron at a time.  If Fron stood on the far right as was advised, then as
    soon as you are two steps away two Snow Spirits will appear which were
    blocked by Fron earlier and others will start appearing as well, but they
    should be no problem if Fron made it to the walkway to the house.  If Fron
    does not make it, use whatever tactics you have developed up to this point.
    
    Philip Mak's Strategy:
    
    That long range blizzard attack of the Snowmen is annoying, because it
    usually knocks Fron back (and he needs to use AP in order to hit from a
    distance). If I'm 3 spaces away from a Snowman, I can "Jump" right next to
    it, at which point it will attack me physically (instead of using blizzard to
    knock me back so that I can't hit it).
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Diamond Mountain: Entrance to Sealed Cave
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 34
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: 8 Knights
    Items: No Items Received
    
    First move Fron and Tia into the lower left area.  Now wait for the Knights to
    come.  You can kill half of them right away by using Jump Slashes, then deal
    with the other four by slashing with Fron and Tia using Treat.  If one starts
    to attack Tia, try to save her, because at that point you can roam around
    the battle to recover AP since at this period in the game the enemies are
    still walking somewhat randomly.  After killing them or escaping and roaming
    if Tia gets attacked (where you can easily deal with the one or two remaining
    Knights), you win the battle.
    
    Philip Mak's Strategy:
    
    A "Kamaitachi" done at the beginning does wonders, especially if you can do
    two in rapid succession (you have enough AP to, or you have enough AP to
    after Tia "Help"s you, or you use a restore AP item).
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Sealed Cave
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 35
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: 8 Snake Varieties (And 1 Big Rock)
    Items: No Items Received
    
    The first thing you should do is use Separate and put Tia into the back space
    of the hole in the eastern wall.  Now walk down to the end with Fron until a
    Big Rock and the Snakes appear.  These Snakes are composed of Super
    Snakes that can kill you in a few hits and the ones from the Tower of the
    Desert which will do very little damage to you.  Just start running back down
    to Tia.  If they start to attack Tia, just switch over to her and use Recover,
    then switch back and keep running.  Or, if they try to block Fron, use
    Kamaitachi, as that will usually take out five or six of them.  In the last
    instance, if they just walk around randomly, ignore them and let the Big Rock
    kill them with one hit.  Afterwards, just walk to the end of the route and win
    the battle.
    
    Philip Mak's Strategy:
    
    If one of your characters gets squashed by the rock at the end of the room,
    it's Game Over, even if your other character is still alive.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 36
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: 8 Fire Spirits
    Items: No Items Received
    
    This is a somewhat difficult battle depending on how you deal with it.  First
    off, use Tia's Sing three times to weaken all of the Fire Spirits.  Now either
    go to them or let them come to you, because there are about five that are
    not on an island in the lava.  Try to kill them up close, because otherwise
    they will hit both of you with their Fire Breath, and that can hurt Tia a lot. 
    Use Treat with Tia on Fron and have Fron use whatever works best for him,
    skills or whatever.  The three Snakes on the islands can be killed with Fron's
    Sonic Boom or Tia's Bow and skills.  I would recommend that you just ignore
    the Fire Spirits on the islands and simply walk past them, because as soon as
    Fron and Tia make it to the upper right you win.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 37
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: 3 Pyramids Puzzle
    Items: No Items Received
    
    The last puzzle in the game and one that will actually require thinking skills. 
    Here is how to solve it: first use Separate.  Next, with Fron, go up and pick
    up the Blue and Green Pyramids one at a time and place them behind you. 
    Pick up the Red Pyramid, walk over to the left, and place it onto the
    corresponding switch.  Place the Green Pyramid on the corresponding switch,
    then pick up the Blue Pyramid and stand one space left of the Blue switch. 
    Now, switch over to Tia and move her one space to the right of the Blue
    switch.  Now switch back over to Fron and place the Blue Pyramid three
    spaces below the Blue switch.  Then pick up the Green Pyramid and place it
    two spaces below the Blue switch.  Now switch over to Tia and have her walk
    over to the far left non-colored switch by the door.  Pick up the Green
    Pyramid and place it onto the corresponding switch.  Now pick up the Blue
    Pyramid and place it onto the Blue switch when standing one space to the
    left of the Blue switch.  Finally, walk over to the Green Pyramid, pick it up,
    walk over to the non-colored switch next to Tia, and place the Green Pyramid
    on the Green switch for the last time to open the door and decipher the
    puzzle.

    Diamond Mountain
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 38
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: Barambat
    Items: 2 Magic Berries And 2 Wonder Leaves Received Afterward
    
    First off, Barambat moves one space for your every two.  That slowness
    alone makes this battle much easier.  I would not call this boss battle easy,
    but I would not say it is very difficult either.  Start off by using Tia's Magic
    Sword on Fron.  Then let Barambat come to you and use 3 Dash Attacks on
    him up the middle row.  After that, switch control to Tia and have her lead
    Fron to an escape route through the western part through the trees.  You
    should come out on the upper part and hopefully Barambat will be in the lower
    part walking back and forth between the same two spaces for the rest of
    the battle.  If that happens, just use Dash Attack on him until he dies.  If he
    actually comes to you, use Tia's Help and Fron's Dash Attack to try and kill
    him before he makes it to you.  If for some reason worse comes to worse
    twice and he makes it to you, just slash him and use basic strategies
    because by now he should be so weak a few more regular hits or a skill or two
    will finish him off.  No matter what though, effective use of Fron's skills and
    Tia's Help and MagicSword will put you on top.
    
    Philip Mak's Strategy:
    
    Tia can barely scratch Barambat. Her arrow attack does 1 HP of damage.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 39
    Controlling: Fron And Tia
    Enemies: 8 Ultra Bats
    Items: No Items Received
    
    These Ultra Bats (which move two spaces for your every one) will be a bigger
    pain for Tia than they will be for Fron.  Speaking of Tia, this is her last
    battle, so take all the stuff you want to use with Chitta off of her, such as a
    Chain Armor.  Anyway, back to the tactics.  Just try to make the Ultra Bats
    come to Fron and target Fron so he can take them out one by one with a
    Jump Slash.  You can wait around and use Help over and over so that Fron
    has pseudo infinite AP.  Wait around and then move on to the next set or use
    Tia's Help to recover AP.  Since you can attack them in pairs instead of all at
    once, this battle should be no problem at all.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Diamond Mountain: Temple
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 40
    Controlling: Fron
    Enemies: 4 Gargoyles And 4 Ultra Bats
    Items: No Items Received
    
    The first thing you should do is wait around so that the four Ultra Bats come
    to you and you can pick them off easily with Jump Slashes.  Now either Dash
    Attack the Gargoyles since you can wait around as much as you want and
    recover AP, or use the Jump skill to go two spaces and get right next to the
    Gargoyles where they cannot use their Flying Punch and knock you back. 
    Either way, once again, divide and conquer, and this should be a walk in the
    park.

    Battle 41
    Controlling: Fron And Chitta
    Enemies: 7 Ultra Bats And 9 Gargoyles With 3 Ultra Bats And 5 Gargoyles
    Starting
    Items: No Items Received
    
    Three Ultra Bats will be barring your way at the front.  To defeat them have
    Chitta Blaze all of them or use Fron's Jump Slash three times, whichever
    works for you.  This is where the Ribbon comes in handy, as Chitta can kill
    Gargoyles completely with her Blaze skill because of the added Magic bonus. 
    Now keep going and you will encounter some Gargoyles.  Take them out with
    Jump Slashes since having Chitta behind Fron keeps them from knocking you
    back.  Two Ultra Bats will eventually be generated, and you must defeat all of
    the other enemies that will be generated as well.  The Ultra Bats will stay
    there and prevent more enemies from being generated until you come close, so try
    to take advantage of that by recovering AP.  If you kill the enemies early wait
    around for more to be generated.  Then go to the upper part when you are
    finished.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 42
    Controlling: Fron And Chitta
    Enemies: 4 Gargoyles And 4 Ultra Bats, Then Infinity Of Both
    Items: No Items Received
    
    In this one I am almost certain that they just keep coming.  They come from
    the far upper and a little to the left area.  Make your way up the stairway
    and use Chitta's Blaze and Fron's Jump Slashes when necessary.  It should be
    noted that the Gargoyles can and will use their Flying Punch when they are
    hovering in the air outside of the walkway.  Make your way up to the end of
    the stairway killing anything that gets in your way.  However, I would not
    recommend taking the time to stop and defeat everything, just whatever is
    impeding your progress.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 43
    Controlling: Fron And Chitta
    Enemies: Black Curtain And Almost Always 4 Power Earth Spirits
    Items: No Items Received
    
    This is it.  This is the final bad guy, and for those of you who wanted to fight
    a difficult boss, your wishes have been granted.  There may be several
    different ways to defeat this guy, but this is the way I used: first walk up to
    Black Curtain with Chitta and use Blaze three times trying to hit Black
    Curtain and the Power Earth Spirits.  After using all of her AP, switch over
    to Fron and use the distraction to get a Jump Slash in on Black Curtain. 
    From here on out, just dodge the Power Earth Spirits (who thankfully move
    one space for your every two) and either Jump Slash Black Curtain or Dash
    Attack if you are feeling cautious.  Since unless you were wasteful you
    should have 10+ Cure-Alls, Magic Berries, and most importantly, Wonder
    Leaves, Fron should never have to wait or run out of AP or HP.  Use up all the
    rest of your items, because after this you cannot use them anymore.  Black
    Curtain uses the same Thunder Attack as Tania and an annoying Shoot
    attack which will cause a decent amount of damage eventually because if it is
    being used continuously, you will start to hurt.  Other than that, just use
    your skills, use your items, use your tactics and strategies, and if you have
    very little healing items, then you have my sympathy, good luck.
    
    Barrett Shands's Strategy:
    
    I entered the fight with zero healing items.Took me five tries to get this guy
    down.  What you do is, don't move Fron or Chitta, but instead have Fron use
    Sonic Boom or Chitta use Thunder, and keep doing so until he is out of range
    of either. Then, use Fron to jump ahead two spaces, and keep doing so until
    he's close enough to use Sonic Boom again. But always move Chitta one
    space after Fron moves, because Black Curtain always, ALWAYS, powers up
    his Thunder, and it's ALWAYS on the opposite person (IE the one you're not
    controlling.) Make sure to keep Chitta away from the golems though, they
    hurt!! Keep doing this until he goes down! (Took half an hour, but I got hit
    only four times during the entire thing, Chitta and Fron combined.)
    
    Philip Mak's Strategy:
    
    It's not hard to do this battle without healing items, although it *is* time
    consuming.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Battle 44
    Controlling: Fron (And Tia)
    Enemies: The Stone
    Items: No Items Received
    
    You may not consider this a battle, but it might be confusing so here is some
    info on it.  First, Fron will be fully restored and Chitta will be gone.  Now,
    walk over to the stone and try to slash it.  Now the game will get really shaky
    (for me anyway) so keep hitting "x" until it pulls up the Skills List.  Choose
    Jump Slash then Tia will come and use Magic Sword on you.  Hit "x" until it
    pulls up the skills list again, use Jump Slash once more, and you have won the
    game!  Just a side note, this game was very quick wasn't it?  The first time I
    played, I managed to beat it in a mere 3:30.  The second time when I wrote a
    great deal of this walkthrough it took me about 6:00 because of all the time it
    took to stop and write down some stuff in my notebook.  Either way though, it is
    a short game, it is a fun game, and you would probably enjoy playing it again,
    possibly trying some different stuff including to go into the Forest Of
    Confusion or not depending on which you chose last time.
    
    Barrett Shands Says:
    
    Oh and the reason the game's shaky afterwards is because the orb emits
    some sort of force that slows you, or some such, and keeps you from
    turning certain directions on certain tiles.

    9. FAQ
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    Here are questions that people have asked about Monstania.
    
    Where can I find Monstania?
    
    You can find it by emailing me and I will give you the link to where you can get
    it, assuming you are using emulation, if you want to buy it then read below. 
    Or you can try and find it on your own, you may be able to.
    
    Where can I find the translation patch?
    
    You can find the patch at http://agtp.romhack.net.  More info on what is
    there later.
    
    Where can I buy Monstania?
    
    I think you would be best off looking for one of those import dealerships,
    because it was released only in Japan.  However, if you are not willing to shell
    out a great deal of money, wait a long time, and spend a while searching for
    it, then read above.
    
    10. Cheats
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    Somebody asked me if there were any of these and there were not, so I went
    ahead and made some.  Although, for a game like this, why you would need
    some...
    
    yzC7C3xx - Fron's AP.
    yzC7D3xx - Fron's Attack.
    yzC7D5xx - Fron's Defense.
    
    Now for an explanation for those who do not understand what those mean.  Y
    and Z are generic numbers, usually "7E," but having both as 0 will work fine
    here. For "XX," insert the number you want in hex code. Common numbers
    are 63 (99) and FF (255) which is the maximum data value for a single line
    number code.
    
    So for those who want to use those as PAR or GG codes, use these:
    
    00C7C363 - Fron's AP.
    00C7D3FF - Fron's Attack.
    00C7D5FF - Fron's Defense.
    
    And now for some notes:
    
    Fron's AP in a battle will be 99 subtracted by the cost in AP of your most
    recent skill.
    For the Fron Attack and Defense codes, it will increase by that amount (255)
    every time you switch equipment. So to do 9999 damage for every attack,
    switch your weapon many, many times to increase it by the amount each
    time. The Defense is only physical defense I should add.
    
    Another note is that as of December 2002 Solomon Warrior 7 or something
    like that released a Pro Action Replay Code list for Monstania.  Honestly, the
    game is easy enough not to warrant codes, but they looked legit, so if you
    want some added fun, check them out.  You can find them at
    www.gamefaqs.com of course.
