Final Fantasy 5 Advance Guide

November 22, 2006



Introduction:
This guide is for Final Fantasy 5 and Final Fantasy 5 Advance (which is the
same as Final Fantasy 5, but has some extra stuff, as described in the Version
Differences section).  Most of this guide uses RPGe's translation version 1.10
of the Super Nintendo version of the game.  But I have sections with
translations for all the most important information into the Gameboy Advance
version of the game and the Playstation version of the game (which was released
along with other games in a package called Final Fantasy Anthology).  And I
translated the Blue Magic First Locations Monsters Locations section in its
entirety, since a precise translation for that particular section is especially
important.  If you want to know the Playstation version's translation for a
piece of information whose translation I didn't include, I recommend the
website http://ffvspirit.com/.

For additional information on the statistics behind anything in Final Fantasy 5
(notably determining exactly how much damage everything does and how likely it
is to hit or miss its target), I recommend J.L. Tseng's (a.k.a.
InstructorTrepe's) FFV Algorithms and Stats FAQ, which can be found on the page
for the SNES version of Final Fantasy 5 at www.gamefaqs.com.  I got a lot of
the information for this guide from his FAQ.

The latest version of this guide should be able to be found at
www.gamefaqs.com.  E-mail me if you want to post this guide on your own website.

                           SECTION 01 - WALKTHROUGH
*******************************************************************************

----------------------------------------------------------------------
                WALKTHROUGH PART 01 - METEOR AT TYCOON
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Treasures: PhenixDwn
New monsters in this area:  (Note that most of this walkthrough uses the
translation from the SNES version of the game, but the monsters in these
monster lists at the beginning of each part of the walkthrough use the Gameboy
Advance translation, since I think people playing the GBA game and trying to
complete the beastiary are the most likely to want to use this section.)
xxx Goblin (Butz Solo Battles)   At the Meteor at Tycoon

At the beginning of the game you'll watch some scenes that set up the game.
Once you get control of your character, ride to the east and go into the
meteor.  Save the girl and find the old guy.  After they leave, open the
treasure chest with a PhenixDwn that's hidden in the lower right part of the
screen.  Then leave and ride west, then north.  You'll run into the girl and
old guy again.  Once they join you, continue north, and you'll find a cave.  Go
through it.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                  WALKTHROUGH PART 02 - PIRATE CAVE
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Treasures: Leather Helmet
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
002 Steel Bat                    Pirates' Cave
003 Devil Crab                   Pirates' Cave
004 Stroper                      Pirates' Cave

From now on you'll get into fights with monsters randomly when you're walking
around.  The only exceptions are when you're inside towns or when you're riding
something (like the chocobo) that keeps enemies away.  If the monsters hurt you
too badly, go to the spring at the start of the cave and it'll heal you.  When
you defeat monsters you gain experience, and as you get experience you'll gain
levels, which makes you more powerful.  Defeating monsters also gets you Gil,
which you can use to buy things in shops later in the game.

Make sure to get the Leather Helmet in the cave.  Then go to the menu and equip
it on someone (you'll always have to equip new weapons and armor, otherwise
they won't help you).

You'll come to a door that's locked, and you'll have to push the switch on the
wall to open it, like the guy before you did.  You can't get in the doors in
the Pirate Base at the end of the cave for now, so you'll have to come back for
them later.  Sneak on board the ship at the end of the cave and go to the wheel
at the back to try to steer it.  There'll be a scene, then your party will
finally have all four people in it.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                      WALKTHROUGH PART 03 - TULE
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Treasures: Tent, PhenixDwn, Potion, Ether, 100 gil, Leather Shoes, Tent,
Potion, 150 gil, PhenixDwn, Leather Shoes
New monsters in this area (GBA name):  None

Once you have control of the ship, you can sail north to the Wind Shrine if you
want.  But before you do, you might as well sail west and check out the town of
Tule.  Talk to the people there.  The people in the Beginner's House will give
you some tips.  Search all the barrels, boxes, pots, and treasure chests in the
town to find hidden items.  There's a PhenixDwn hidden in a bush that's off to
the left of the house at the top of town and Leather Shoes hidden in a box
that's off to the right of that house.  Make sure to get them.

There's a pub that has a piano in it.  This is one of eight towns in the game
that each have a piano.  You'll get a little better at the piano every time you
play the piano in a new town.  So play the piano in this town.

You can also buy better weapons and armor there, sell your old weapons and
armor, and buy items.  There's an inn where you can stay the night to restore
your HP and MP if you need to.  There's a magic shop there where you can buy
some spells, but there's no point in doing that now, since you can't use magic
yet.  Faris will rejoin your party when you leave.  Make sure to equip your new
weapons and armor.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                  WALKTHROUGH PART 04 - WIND SHRINE
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Treasures: Potion x5, Tent, Leather Helmet, Broad Sword, Staff
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
001 Goblin                       Randomly encountered on the World Map near
                                 Pirates' Cave in world 1
005 Killer Bee                   World Map near Pirates' Cave in world 1
006 Nutkin                       World Map near Wind Shrine in world 1
007 Stray Cat                    World Map near Wind Shrine in world 1
008 Black Goblin                 Wind Shrine
009 White Serpent                Wind Shrine
010 Moldwynd                     Wind Shrine
011 Mani Wizard                  Wind Shrine
243 Wing Raptor                  Boss in the Wind Shrine

When you're ready, sail north to the Wind Shrine.  Talk to the people on the
first floor.  One of them will give you five potions if you talk to him before
you go through the Wind Shrine.  Make your way to the top and grab all the
treasures along the way.  There's a glowing circle along the way where you can
use a Tent or Cabin to regain your strength or save your game.  Aside from
spots like these, you can't save inside dungeons; only on the world map.
You'll get into a boss fight along the way.  This guide doesn't generally have
specific strategies for each weak boss, since I don't think they're necessary.
If you have trouble with one, check a different guide.  Make sure to get the
Staff in the treasure chest at the end of the hidden passage in the lower right
hand corner of floor 4.

As you go through the game, you will sometimes win items from enemies when you
beat them.  Usually you win great items from strong enemies, and you only win
crappy items from weak enemies.  But note that you can win Elixirs, which are
great healing items, from the Mold Winds here in the Wind Shrine.

At the top of the Wind Shrine there'll be a scene, then you'll gain the pieces
of the Wind Crystal, which will allow you to be a Knight, Monk, Thief, White
Mage, Black Mage, or Blue Mage.  Leave the Wind Shrine through the warp at the
back of the room and the game will give you an explanation of how jobs and
abilities work.  Give each of your characters a job.  You won't have any
abilities for them to equip yet, but now that you have jobs, you will gain ABP
when you defeat monsters, and as you get ABP you'll gain levels in your jobs
and learn their abilities.  See the Jobs Section for additional information on
the different jobs.

I recommend you start out with one White Mage, one Black Mage, and two Knights.
But do whatever works for you.  And once your characters have learned some of
the abilities of a job, have them switch their jobs around, so they become well
balanced.  Or at least have the magic users learn different types of magic and
the physical fighters learn different types of physical fighting.  If you're
only going to have two magic users, then I recommend that you make Galuf and
Faris the magic users.  Note that I also recommend that you temporarily switch
some of your characters to Blue Mages to learn the Blue Magic spells as they
become available.  The Thief and Monk jobs can be useful, but they're a lower
priority.

Note that the White Mage's 7th level sucks.  Your White Mages should switch to
another job once they reach level 6.  And the Black Mage's 7th level can be
useful, but it's a lower priority than some of the other abilities you can get.
None of the Knight's abilities are especially good, so when you get other
physical fighting jobs later you should switch your Knights to them so you can
learn the abilities of those other jobs.  But it can be useful to have some of
your characters be Knights now, not so that you can learn their abilities, but
just because they're strong.

Also note that while in general it is good to have a well balanced party, you
might want to switch all four of your characters to the same job for some boss
fights.  The Black Mage job and the Summoner job (which you'll get later) are
especially good for some boss fights.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                 WALKTHROUGH PART 05 - RETURN VISITS
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Vampire (it's a Blue Magic spell), GblinPnch (also Blue), Aero (Blue)
Treasures: Potion x8, 300 gil, Ether, Tent
New monsters in this area (GBA name):  None

Head back to Tule.  Zokk was gone if you went there before, but he'll be back
in his house at the top of the town now.  Pay him a visit and he'll give you
the Canal Key.

Note that the normal job (which you had been using until now) can equip all
weapons and armor, but when you pick a different job, it'll only be able to
equip certain types of weapons and armor.  So you might want to buy new weapons
and armor that will work better with the jobs you have now.  When you're
shopping for new equipment, the jobs that can equip a weapon or piece of armor
will step forward, and the jobs that can't will stay back.  That way you'll be
able to tell who can equip what.  And now you can buy White and Black Magic
from the magic shop, since you have jobs that can use it now.  See the Weapons,
Armor, Items, White Magic, and Black Magic sections for additional information.

When you leave town Faris will join your party for good and send the other
pirates back to their hideout, and you guys will decide to go to Worus to
protect the other crystals.  You can head there now through the Torna Canal,
but there are a few other things you should do first.  White Magic and Black
Magic is bought in towns (with only a few exceptions that I'll note as they
occur), but Blue Magic is more difficult to obtain.  Blue Magic is used by
monsters, and in order to learn those spells yourself, you have to get a
monster to cast it on you, then win the fight against the monster.  I'll list
the first place you can learn each Blue Magic spell as you go through the
walkthrough.  Note that in order for you to learn a Blue Magic spell, the
monster has to cast it on someone who has the Learning ability (note that Blue
Mages automatically have the Learning ability, and can use it even if it isn't
equipped).  I recommend that you don't have any of your characters use the
ability Counter when you're trying to learn a Blue Magic spell, because that
might result in your accidentally killing the enemy before it has a chance to
cast the Blue Magic spell on you.  Monks automatically have the Counter
ability, so I recommend against using them when you're trying to learn a Blue
Magic spell.

Go back to the Pirates' Cave (you'll have to sail around to the place where you
entered it the first time, and go all the way through the cave again).  You can
learn the Blue Magic spell Vampire from the Steel Bat in the Pirates' Cave.
(If you're playing the Playstation version of Final Fantasy 5, see Section 22 -
Blue Magic First Locations (Playstation Translation) for translations of all
the Blue Magic information in this walkthrough.  If you're playing the Gameboy
Advance version of Final Fantasy 5, see Section 23 - Blue Magic First Locations
(Gameboy Advance Translation) for translations of all the Blue Magic
information in this walkthrough.

There will also be some treasure in the Pirates' Cave that you couldn't get
earlier.  There's a switch in the lower left corner of the Pirates' Cave that
will open a door in one of its rooms that leads to some treasure chests.  If
you've already gotten the key to the Torna Canal, there will be a Pirate who
will give you 8 Potions when you talk to him.

Go back to the Wind Shrine where you can learn the Blue Magic spell GblinPnch
from a Black Goblin and you can learn the Blue Magic spell Aero from a Mold
Wind.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                  WALKTHROUGH PART 06 - TORNA CANAL
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Treasures: Flail, Tent, 990 gil, PhenixDwn, Potion, World Map, Antidote x2,
PhenixDwn
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
019 Bandersnatch                 World Map on the land surrounding the entrance
                                 to the Torna Canal in world 1
191 Sucker                       Torna Canal
192 Octokraken                   Torna Canal
244 Karlabos                     Boss of Torna Canal
012 Skeleton                     Ship Graveyard
013 Calcruthl                    Ship Graveyard
014 Undead Husk                  Ship Graveyard
015 Mindflusher                  Ship Graveyard
245 Siren                        Boss of Ship Graveyard

When you're ready, sail east to the Torna Canal leading to a river.  Note that
the monsters in the canal only target your female characters.  Go through and
you'll get into a fight with a boss.  After the fight, note that you can heal
by going downstairs on your ship and sleeping.  Leave your ship then head down.
You can jump onto the rock, then more rocks will appear so that you can jump
from one to the next to get the Flail.  Then go back and go inside the second
boat and continue through it.  You'll come to one part where you have to go
underwater.  Some people are unable to see themselves when they're underwater.
If that's the case with you, try turning off one of the layers of graphics on
your emulator (press 2 to turn off layer 2 with ZsNES, then press 2 again to
turn it back on later).  If you still can't see yourself, get the latest
version of ZsNES.  Make sure to keep searching the boxes and barrels you find
for treasure.  Once you get out of the second boat, go down and inside a third
boat, and make sure to get the World Map that's in the corner.  Get the other
treasures in the boat, then go outside and over to a fourth boat.  You'll get
into a fight with a boss on your way out of the Ship Graveyard.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                     WALKTHROUGH PART 07 - CARWEN
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Treasures: 1000 gil, Antidote, Ice Rod
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
016 Gatling                      World Map near Carwen in world 1
017 Big Horn                     World Map near Carwen in world 1
018 Tatou                        World Map near Carwen in world 1
020 Garula                       World Map on the plains west of Carwen in
                                 world 1

Once you're back on the world map, make your way southeast to the new town of
Carwen.  Talk to the people there, buy new equipment and magic in the shops,
and play the piano.  The White Magic spell Armor can be a useful defensive
spell in fights against bosses.  Give one of your characters the Thief's
Passages ability (or give them the job of Thief, which automatically has the
Passages ability) and search for items.  There's a secret passage that's hard
to see (even with the Passages ability) below and to the right of the item
shop.  Go between two boxes and you can make your way to some more boxes, one
of which has an Ice Rod.  Carwen's items shop has some items that weren't
available in Tule, so consider buying them.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                 WALKTHROUGH PART 08 - NORTH MOUNTAIN
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Flash (Blue)
Treasures: PhenixDwn, Soft, Mythril Helmet
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
021 Rock Slug                    North Mountain
022 Gaelicat                     North Mountain
023 Cockatrice                   North Mountain
024 Headstone                    North Mountain
247 Forza                        Boss of North Mountain
246 Magissa                      Boss of North Mountain

Leave town and make your way north to the North Mountain.  Make your way
through it, and get the treasure chests along the way.  You can learn the Blue
Magic spell Flash here from an enemy called Blocks, although you'll have to use
an Ether on it in order for it to have enough MP to cast the spell.  If you
don't want to use an Ether for a Blue Magic spell, you'll have another chance
to learn Flash a little later in the game (I'll point it out).

Avoid the flowers outside, as they'll poison you.  Towards the top of the tower
you'll get into another boss fight with Magissa.  If you kill her right away,
that'll be the end of the fight.  But if you take a while, Forza will join her.
Lenna will be poisoned, so you can use an Antidote to cure her.  Continue
through the mountain after the fight and you'll get the Hiryuu.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                     WALKTHROUGH PART 09 - TYCOON
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Treasures: HiPotion, MaidnKiss, Ether, Elixir, PhenixDwn, Ether, Elixir,
PhenixDwn, Cabin, Healing Staff, Shuriken, Giyaman Bell, Katana, Cabin x2
New monsters in this area (GBA name):  None

Fly back to the meteor where you started the game, and with the Hiryuu you'll
be able to go over it.  Explore Tycoon castle.  Talk to the people there and
search for items.  After you've talked to the Chancellor you'll be able to
enter the section on the left of the castle, which has a switch you can press
to get to a tunnel with some treasures.  The Chancellor will be there and give
you a Healing Staff.  Outside on the right side of the castle you can take a
hidden passage behind a tree to get to another section of the castle with two
Cabins.  There's nothing else you can do here, so leave once you have all the
treasures.  You can't get into the King's Room for now.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                   WALKTHROUGH PART 10 - WORUS TOWN
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Treasures: Glasses
New monsters in this area (GBA name):  None

Fly the Hiryuu back to Carwen.  Then go south over the water and you'll find
the town of Worus.  Talk to the people in the town, buy new equipment, and
search for items.  There are new spells in its magic shop, but they're not
White Magic, Black Magic, or Blue Magic.  They're new types of magic that you
wouldn't be able to use yet even if you bought them (you don't have the right
jobs yet), so don't bother buying them yet.  When you're ready, head to the
castle.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                  WALKTHROUGH PART 11 - WORUS CASTLE
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Drag (Dimen), FrogSong (Blue), Shiva (Esper), MoonFlut (Blue)
Treasures: Tent, 490 gil, PhenixDwn, Elf Cape, 1000 gil x2
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
030 Jackanapes                   Worus Castle Basement
025 Elf Toad                     Worus Castle Behind Waterfall
026 Ice Soldier                  Worus Castle Behind Waterfall
248 Ice Commander                Boss in Worus Castle Behind Waterfall
249 Shiva                        Boss in Worus Castle Behind Waterfall

Talk to the people here and search for items.  You'll find a Tent, 490 gil, and
a PhenixDwn.  Downstairs you have the option of letting Lone Wolf out of jail.
Doing so doesn't seem to have any benefits, and if you do let him go, he'll
take a few of the treasure chests throughout the rest of the game so that you
won't be able to get them yourself.  If you want, you could take some of the
treasure chests yourself first, and then let him go.  You should've already
taken the two Cabins in Tycoon, and those are some of the treasures he can
take.  The others are a Thunder Whip and two more Cabins (I'll point them out
when you get to them).  Although your last chance to free him comes before you
get a chance to get the last two Cabins, so there's no way to get those and
then let him go.  (Unless you use the "Skipping the Pyramid" bug in the Bugs
section.  That bug works in the SNES version of the game, but it doesn't work
in the Gameboy Advance version.  I'm not sure about the Playstation version.)

In the bottom right corner of floor one there is an exit that will take you to
the waterway around the castle.  You can go inside the waterfall at the top,
where you'll find a tower that has enemies in it.  You can learn the Blue Magic
spell FrogSong from one of the Elf Toads here.  Although it will only use
FrogSong when it's alone, so you have to kill all the other monsters with it
first.  If you make your way to the top of the tower you can get the Esper
Shiva if you can beat her in a fight.  It's a pretty tough fight, though, and
you might not be able to win it right now.  Plus you don't have the job that
can use Espers yet anyway, so you might want to wait and come back later.  When
you do fight Shiva, note that unlike all other enemies in the game, she has
some spells that only affect the people in the front row, or only affect the
people in the back row.  So if you split your characters between the front and
back row, you can make sure that her spells won't affect all of your characters
at once.

If you go into the basement you'll get into a fight with a very tough enemy
named Garkimasra.  You can learn the Blue Magic spell MoonFlut from Garkimasra.
He won't cast it if you leave him alone, but sometimes he'll cast it in
response to your damaging him.  Although Garkimasra is a very tough fight at
this point in the game.  So I recommend waiting to learn MoonFlut until you get
a chance to learn it from another enemy later in the game (I'll point it out).
You can come back and beat Garkimasra later if you want.  For now, you can go
into the basement to get the treasures and try to run away from Garkimasra when
you encounter him.  Using the Thief's !Escape ability will make it easier to
run away from him, if you have it.  In that basement you'll find an Elf Cape,
2000 gil, and the Dimen spell Drag.  You still can't use Dimen Magic yet,
though.

Later in the game you can get either the BraveBld or the Chicken Knife, but you
can't get both.  The BraveBld starts out strong, but gets weaker every time you
run away from enemies.  The Chicken Knife starts out weak, but gets stronger
every time you run away from enemies (up to a point).  So if you think you
might eventually want to get the BraveBld, you might not want to go into the
basement now, since you'll probably have to run away from Garkimasra.  In that
case you can wait to go into the basement until later in the game, when you'll
be able to beat Garkimasra.  (I'll remind you later.)  Although I actually
recommend that people get the Chicken Knife rather than the BraveBld, in which
case you can go ahead and go in the basement now and run away from Garkimasra.
See the information on the BraveBld and Chicken Knife in the Weapons section
for more information.

When you talk to the king, a meteor will fall to the north.  So once you get
everything you want from the castle, get back on your Hiryuu and head north to
the meteor.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                  WALKTHROUGH PART 12 - WORUS TOWER
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Treasures: Silk Robe, MaidnKiss, Silver Ring, Ether
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
027 Ricard Mage                  Worus Tower in world 1
028 Wyvern                       Worus Tower
029 Pas de Seul                  Worus Tower
250 Garula (Walse Tower)         Boss of Worus Tower

If you walk around outside of the Worus Tower you will encounter an enemy
called Galura.  Galura will never attack you.  You can kill it if you want, but
if you wait a bit, it'll leave on its own.  Either way, you'll win ABP from it.
Getting into encounters with Galura are an easy way to gain ABP.

There's nothing you can do at the meteor itself, but after the meteor falls
near Worus Tower, you'll be able to get into Worus Tower for the first time.
Make your way through the tower.  You can climb up the vines that are on some
pillars to get to the floors above.  At the top of the tower you'll get into a
boss fight, then you'll be able to pick up some more crystal pieces and get new
jobs.  There's one crystal piece you won't be able to get yet, but don't worry,
you'll be able to come back for it later in the game.

For now, leave the tower and consider switching some of your characters to the
new jobs.  I recommend that you have your Black Mage switch to a Summoner and
learn both types of magic.  At some point all magic users should learn the Red
Mage's !X-Magic ability.  It's very useful.  The Time Mage and Mystic Knight
jobs can be useful, but they're only a medium level priority.  Berserker sucks,
don't waste your time with that.  If you're going to use a Time Mage, note that
their 7th level sucks.  Your Time Mages should switch to another job once they
reach level 6.  You should definitely have a Summoner reach level 5, but
getting it to the 6th level to master it isn't necessary.  It can be useful,
but it's a lower priority.

You might want to go back to Worus and buy the spells in its magic shop now,
since now you'll be able to use them.  The Dimen Magic spell Haste can be a
useful spell in fights against bosses.  And now you can use the spell Drag
which is in Worus Castle's basement, so you might consider getting that now if
you didn't before.  Now you'll be able to use the Esper Shiva if you want to go
back to Worus Castle and get that, but it'll still be a pretty tough fight.  It
might be better to wait until you get to the next town, where you'll be able to
buy magic which will greatly help you in your fight against Shiva.

If you go back to Worus Castle and talk to people, they'll suggest you go to
Karnak.  There's a soldier at Worus who says he came from Karnak via a meteor.
So go to the meteor near Worus Tower and you'll find it now has an opening that
will transport you to an area near Karnak.

                     WALKTHROUGH PART 13 - KARNAK
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  ???? (Blue), Fusion (Blue)
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
031 Aegir                        World Map on the plains near Karnak and the
                                 Ancient Library in world 1
032 Zu                           World Map on the plains near Karnak and the
                                 Ancient Library in world 1
034 Grass Tortoise               World Map on the plains near Karnak and the
                                 Ancient Library in world 1
033 Wild Nakk                    World Map in the forests near Karnak in world
                                 1

Walk from the meteor to Karnak.  On the way you'll be able to learn the Blue
Magic spell ???? from a Wild Nack in the forest.  Talk to the weapon or armor
salesmen (you'll get a one time only opportunity to buy something at a
discount, so you might as well make the most of the discount and buy an
expensive weapon) and you'll be arrested.  When you get out of jail explore the
castle and town.  For now, you won't be able to get the treasures that are
blocked by fires.
  But you can talk to people, buy new equipment and magic in
the shops, and play the piano.  The Fire Rods, Ice Rods, and Thunder Rods for
sale in the weapon shop in Karnak are especially noteworthy.  The Fire Rod does
Fire damage when you attack with it, and it increases the damage of your Fire
spells if you have it equipped.  And if you use it as an item in battle when
you have it equipped (press up from the item list during a battle to access the
weapons you have equipped), it will casts Fire3 on all enemies then shatter.
The Ice Rods and Thunder Rods have similar effects, but with Ice and Thunder,
respectively.  Ice Rods will be useful in the Steamship, and Fire Rods will
help in the fight against the Esper Shiva (both as a Black Magic spell, and a
Sword Magic spell).  So once you have them, you can go back to Worus and get
her, if you haven't already.  Karnak also sells the White Magic spell Charm.
If you go back to the Ship Graveyard, you can learn the Blue Magic spell Fusion
from the enemy Carcurser there if you cast Charm on it.  If you don't want to
go all the way back to the Ship Graveyard, you'll have another chance to learn
Fusion a little later in the game (I'll point it out).  When you're continue,
go inside the Steamship near Karnak.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                   WALKTHROUGH PART 14 - STEAMSHIP
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Exploder (Blue), Flash (Blue, if you didn't learn it earlier)
Treasures: Mythril Glove, Cabin, Elixir x2, PhenixDwn, World Map (if you didn't
get it earlier in the Ship Graveyard), Thief Glove, GrnBeret, Full Moon, Elixir
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
037 Crew Dust                    Steamship
038 Poltergeist                  Steamship
039 Defeater                     Steamship
040 Motor Trap                   They appear in the Steamship after you win a
                                 fight in which the enemy Defeater is the last
                                 enemy you kill
251 Liquid Flame                 Boss of Steamship

Make your way through the Steamship.  You can learn the Blue Magic spell
Exploder from the enemy Motor Trap.  Motor Traps appear after you win a fight
in which the enemy Defeater is the last enemy you kill.  You'll have to do
Thunder damage to a Motor Trap to get it to cast Exploder.  You can either cast
Bolt on it or hit it with a Thunder Rod.  If you didn't learn it earlier,
you'll also be able to learn the Blue Magic spell Flash from the enemy Crew
Dust.  Crew Dust will only cast Flash when it's alone, so you'll have to kill
all the other monsters with it first.  There was a guy in Karnak who mentioned
that.  Use the switches on the elevators to go to the next floor.

You'll come to a small room with seven exits.  First take the pipe that's
second from the right and you'll find the Thief Glove.  Make your way back to
the room with seven exits, and this time take the pipe furthest to the right.
Go right and around and you'll find a treasure chest with a GrnBeret, then go
through the door and you'll come back to the room with seven exits.  Finally
take the pipe second from the left.  You'll go to a room with stairs and a
door.  Take the stairs on the right first, and you'll get a Full Moon.  Then go
back and take the door, and continue through the Steamship.  In one room you'll
have to flip a bunch of switches to create bridges and move yourself around on
them (sometimes you'll have to be standing on the part that moves in order to
move along with it).  At the end of the steamship you'll have another boss
fight.  After you beat it, I suggest you go back and save, and once you've done
that, continue on to the Fire Crystal.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                 WALKTHROUGH PART 15 - KARNAK CASTLE
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Aero 2 (Blue), DethClaw (Blue), Heal (White)
Treasures: 2000 gil, Elixir, Shuriken, Ribbon, 2000 gil x2, Elixir x5, Elf
Cape, Guardian, Thunder Scroll
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
041 Sergeant                     Karnak Castle
043 Cur Nakk                     Karnak Castle
042 Sorcerer                     Inside treasure chests in Karnak Castle
044 Gigas                        Inside treasure chests in Karnak Castle
252 Iron Claw                    Boss of Karnak Castle
xxx Sergeant (Iron Claw Battle)  Boss of Karnak Castle
xxx Cur Nakk (Iron Claw Battle)  Boss of Karnak Castle

You'll see a scene, then you'll have to get out of the castle before it
explodes.  Try to get all the treasures if you have time.  Running away from
random fights can save time, but it sometimes takes a particularly long time to
run away from the enemies here, so you can use the Thief's !Escape ability to
run away faster.  You'll have to fight the monsters inside the treasure chests
in order to get the treasures.  If you're too weak to defeat them quickly
enough to get all the treasures in time, you might consider fighting enemies to
increase your level and gain new abilities before you start this part of the
walkthrough.  I recommend that you don't save at the save point inside Karnak
Castle.  That way, if you run out of time, you can load your game from back in
the Steamship, increase your level, then try again.  If you saved inside Karnak
Castle, then you won't be able to take time to increase your level, since
you'll be on the clock.  If you're playing the Super Nintendo version of Final
Fantasy 5 on your computer (with a ROM), then you can use a Hex Editor to give
yourself extra time.  See the Hacking section for more information.

Note that there's a pot that will heal you if you backtrack a little bit.  Most
of the treasure chests in Karnak Castle have monsters inside them.  Which
monsters you'll find in a treasure chest can vary, but sometimes you'll get
Gigas, and you can learn the Blue Magic spell Aero 2 from the it.  When you're
about to leave the castle you'll get into a fight against three Karnaks and a
Sergeant.  Once you kill the Karnaks, the Sergeant will transform into an Iron
Claw, and you can learn the Blue Magic spell DethClaw from that.  Although if
you kill the Sergeant before you kill the Karnaks, then he'll never transform
into an Iron Claw, which can save time, but which makes you miss your chance to
learn DethClaw.  If you don't have time to learn Aero 2, you'll have another
chance a little later in the game.  You'll have another chance to learn
DethClaw too, but it won't be for a long time.  I'll point them out when you
get to them.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                WALKTHROUGH PART 16 - KARNAK AFTERMATH
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Missile (Blue), AquaRake (Blue)
Treasures: Fire Rod
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
058 Dhorme Chimera               World Map in desert south of Karnak in world 1

After you get out of Karnak Castle, you'll get new jobs.  Consider switching
some of your characters to them.  I recommend that all your physical fighters
should learn the Ninja's 2-Handed ability at some point.  It's very useful.
It's like the Knight's Dbl Grip ability, but it's innate, so once you've
mastered the Ninja job, the Normal and Mimic Jobs won't have to equip the
2-Handed ability in order to use it.  And it works with more weapons than Dbl
Grip does.  If you want to use Blue Magic, then I recommend that you have
someone learn the Mediator's !Control ability (which he gets at level 2),
because it can be helpful in getting monsters to use some Blue Magic spells so
that you can learn them.  But you should switch to another job once you reach
level 2.  The Mediator's other abilities suck.  The Geomancer's !Terrain
ability can be useful, but it's a lower priority.  Although it might be more
useful than I give it credit for.  The skills that Geomancers learn after level
1 can be useful, but they're a lower priority too.  And they work for the whole
group even if they're only equipped on one character, so there's no point in
having all of your characters learn them.

Once you've decided what jobs you're going to use, go back to Karnak.  The
fires there have gone out, and that allows you for the first time to go up on
top of the city's wall and walk around to find a Fire Rod in a barrel.  Buy
equipment for your new jobs if you want to.  There will be a new weapons
salesman there.

One of your new jobs, Mediator, can learn an ability called !Control that will
help you get additional Blue Magic spells.  Once you get it, go back in the
Steamship and take control of a Motor Trap.  (Motor Traps appear after you win
a fight in which the enemy Defeater is the last enemy you kill.)  Have the
Motor Trap cast Missile on someone with the Learning ability, and you'll learn
that Blue Magic spell.

If you talk to everyone in Karnak after the Steamship, there's a guy who
mentions a frightening monster in the desert to the west.  Final Fantasy 5 has
a few super enemies, some of which are even tougher than the game's final boss.
One of them is D.Chimera, which is in the desert southwest of Karnak.  The
super enemies are all optional, so you don't have to fight them if you don't
want to, but they're there if you want the challenge.  Although you might want
to avoid the desert for now and come back and fight it later.  Note that you
can learn the Blue Magic spell AquaRake from D.Chimera.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
              WALKTHROUGH PART 17 - THE ANCIENT LIBRARY
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Fusion (Blue, if you didn't learn it earlier), Ifrit (Esper), L5 Doom
(Blue), GuardOff (Blue), Aero 2 (Blue, if you didn't learn it earlier),
MoonFlut (Blue, if you didn't learn it earlier), Hammer (Blue)
Treasures: Ether, Stealth Robe, PhenixDwn
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
035 Silent Bee                   World Map near the Ancient Library in world 1
036 Mythril Dragon               World Map in the forests near the Ancient
                                 Library in world 1
045 Page 32                      Ancient Library
046 Page 64                      Ancient Library
047 Page 128                     Ancient Library
048 Page 256                     Ancient Library
253 Ifrit                        Boss halfway through Ancient Library
254 Byblos                       Boss of Ancient Library

Some of the people in Karnak will talk about areas to the south.  When Karnak
Castle exploded, it broke some of the wall next to it, so you'll be able to go
to those areas now.  Head south to the Ancient Library.  If you didn't learn it
earlier, you can learn the Blue Magic spell Fusion from the enemy Mithril Drgn
if you use the Mediator's !Control ability.  Mithril Drgn can be found in the
forests around the Ancient Library.

Talk to the people inside the Ancient Library, then head into the basement to
look for Mid.  The bookcases in the first room will be blocking your path, but
they'll move out of your way when you step on certain spots.  Search the
bookshelf with the shadow below it at the end of the room and a doorway will
appear.  If you want to go back out through that room, you'll have to step on
different spots to get the bookcases to move out of your way again.

You can learn the Blue Magic spell L5 Doom from the enemy Page 64 here.
Although L5 Doom will only work on characters who are at a level that is a
multiple of 5 (for example, 5, 10, 15, 20, and so on).  So make sure that at
least one of the people who can learn the spell is on a level that is a
multiple of 5, and also make sure that at least one of the people in your party
is not on a level that is a multiple of 5.  (If all of your party members are
on a level that is a multiple of 5, then the spell will work on all of them,
and there will be no one left to survive the fight.)  In order to achieve this,
if you need to increase the level of some of your characters without increasing
the level of some other characters, you can kill the characters whose level you
don't want to increase, then get into fights so the other characters will gain
experience (characters who are dead at the end of a fight don't gain
experience).

You can also learn the Blue Magic spell GuardOff from the enemy Page 256 in the
Ancient Library if you use the Mediator's !Control ability.  If you didn't
learn the Blue Magic spell Aero 2 in Karnak Castle, then you can learn it here
from a Page 32.  And if you didn't learn the Blue Magic spell MoonFlut in Worus
Castle, then you can learn it here from a Page 256.

As you go through the Ancient Library, you'll find a bookshelf that won't let
you through.  Go back outside that room and climb the ladder to the left.
Search and you'll find an entrance to another room.  Go through there and
you'll get the Esper Ifrit if you can beat it in a fight.  With it, go back to
the bookcase that wouldn't let you through and Ifrit will make it let you pass.
In that room, make sure to go down the ladder and get the Stealth Robe, then
continue through the Ancient Library.  Search the spots at the top of the
ladders when you come to dead ends.

At the end of the path you'll get into a fight with a boss named Byblos.  Note
that Byblos is weak against fire.  When you beat him, he says that the seal of
his master still lives.  You can learn the Blue Magic spell Hammer (a.k.a.
Magic Hammer) from Byblos.  If you don't get it now, you'll have another chance
later, but it won't be for a long time.  I'll point it out when you get to it.
Talk to Mid after the battle and he'll go see Cid in Karnak.  Go to Karnak and
talk to them (Cid's in the pub) and they'll fix the Steamship and give it to
you so you can find and protect the Earth crystal.

When you get the steamship Galuf will recover some of his memory.  In a
flashback you'll see a place where Exdeath is sealed using the power of the
four crystals, which are represented by four stones in a forest that's
surrounded by mountains.  It's just east of Tule.  Now one of those stones has
disappeared for each crystal that shattered.

You don't really know where the Earth Crystal is, but you can explore a few new
places with the steamship.  You can get to Jacole in the south, which some of
the people in Karnak had mentioned.  And if you go see Cid and Mid in the
Ancient Library, they'll mention a crescent shaped island.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                    WALKTHROUGH PART 18 - CRESCENT
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells: Vitality (Song), DrkShock (Blue)
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
193 Sahagin                      World map in oceans in world 1
194 Thunder Anemone              World map in oceans in world 1
195 Sea Ibis                     World map in oceans in world 1
050 Doublizard                   World map near Crescent in world 1
051 Bio Soldier                  World map near Crescent in world 1
052 Harvester                    World map near Crescent in world 1
053 Black Flame                  World map near Crescent in world 1

You can use the World Map from the Ship Graveyard to see places to go by
pressing Y.  Sail to the crescent shaped island in the southeast, and visit the
town there.  The doors in the town will be locked during the earthquake, but
it'll end when you leave town, then you can go back in and explore the town.
Talk to the people there and play the piano in the bard's house.  The bard will
teach you a song, although you don't have the job with the ability to sing it
yet.  There are no new spells for sale in Crescent, but you can buy some spells
there if you didn't already buy them in Karnak.  I recommend that you do not
buy new weapons or armor right now.

One person in the town says he saw a Black Chocobo in the forest.  Leave town
and head to the forest in the south and you'll get the Black Chocobo.  On the
way there you can learn the Blue Magic spell DrkShock from the enemy BlackFlame
that is on Crescent Island.  You'll get new jobs when you get the Black
Chocobo.  Consider switching some of your characters to them.

I recommend that all your physical fighters should learn the Hunter's !X-Fight
ability at some point.  It's very useful (even more useful than the Ninja's
2-Handed ability, although you should learn them both).  I never used the Bard,
but it's probably more useful than I gave it credit for.  Its only really good
songs aren't learned until late in the game though, so I don't recommend
learning to sing them now.

Buy equipment now, now that you know what jobs you're going to have.  But don't
spend all of your money in Crescent, because before continuing on to find the
Earth Crystal, there are a few more towns you can visit, and they have
different equipment for sale.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                      WALKTHROUGH PART 19 - LIX
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells: Charm (Song)
New monsters in this area (GBA name):  None

First head to the town of Lix.  It's just north of the Wind Shrine.  Note that
the Black Chocobo can only land in forests.  Talk to the people in Lix and buy
new equipment (but save some money for the next towns).  The Shuriken, Flame
Scroll, Water Scroll, and Thunder Scroll for sale in the weapons store can't be
equipped by anyone, but they can be thrown using the Ninja's !Throw command.
Some weapons that can be equipped can be thrown too.  See the Weapons Section
for additional information.

If you didn't get the White Magic spell Heal in Karnak Castle, you can buy it
here.  You can buy items at half price in Lix, and its items shop sells Ethers,
so consider buying things there.  You can see a scene if you stay the night at
the inn, which is free.  You can see a flashback if you talk to the scholar in
the middle of the town.  You can see another flashback if you play the music
box in Butz's old house, and after that if you talk to the bard you'll learn
the Charm Song.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                     WALKTHROUGH PART 20 - JACOLE
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Treasures: Shuriken, Tent, Thunder Whip
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
049 Bomb                         World map near Jacole in world 1
057 Skull Eater                  Jacole Cave

Fly to Jacole, the town in the southwest corner.  Since the Black Chocobo can
only land in the forest, you'll have to land pretty far away from Jacole then
make the long trip there by foot.  Talk to the people in Jacole and play the
piano.  Buy new equipment.  There are no new spells for sale in Istory, but you
can buy some spells there if you didn't already buy them in Karnak.

The people in town mention a cave with great items in it, so leave town and
head back to your ship.  On the way you'll see the cave.  If you want you can
stop in and grab the treasures.  Inside the cave you'll sometimes encounter the
enemy Skull Eater.  The Skull Eaters are very strong at this point in the game,
and you might not want to try to fight them now.  You can come back and go
through the cave and fight the Skull Eaters later if you want.  Or you could go
in now and run away from them.  Using the Thief's !Escape ability or the
Ninja's !Smoke ability makes it easier for you to run away.  Or if you wait,
the Skull Eaters will run away from the fight themselves, and when they do you
win 5 ABP.  They hit very hard before they run away, but if you have your
characters use the Knight's !Guard ability, the Ninja's !Image ability, or the
White Magic spell Image, then they'll be able to survive until the Skull Eater
runs away.

Press the switches and search the treasure chests (even the empty ones) to open
paths.  There's one wall with a line of switches.  Only one of them will open
the path to the next area, and its location changes.  As one of the people in
Jacole said, if you wait patiently, the right one will be highlighted.  You can
climb the wall at the end of the cave, but it doesn't lead anywhere.  One of
the treasure chests in the cave would have a Thunder Whip if you left Lone Wolf
in jail in Worus, but he'll take it if you let him out.  Note that if you open
that treasure chest, then leave the room and come back, it's closed again.
This is an oddity of the Lone Wolf treasures.  Once you've gotten the
treasures, leave the cave.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                     WALKTHROUGH PART 21 - ISTORY
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells: Toad (Black), Love (Song), Ramuh (Esper)
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
054 Stone Golem                  World map near Istory in world 1
055 Mini Dragon                  World map in the forests near Istory in world
                                 1
255 Ramuh                        World map in the forests near Istory in world
                                 1
056 Prototype                    World map two islands southwest of Crescent in
                                 world 1

Fly to Istory, the town in the northwest corner.  You probably won't be able to
afford the accessories in the armor shop, which is fine.  The Coral Ring and
Flame Ring are pretty nice (though I don't really care for the Angel Ring), but
you'll be able to buy them much later in the game when you can come closer to
affording them.  And you'll find one of each of them as you go through the
game, and you can get more from some enemies later in the game using the
Thief's !Steal or !Capture abilities.  Istory doesn't have a weapons shop.
There are no new spells for sale in Istory, but you can buy some spells there
if you didn't already buy them in Karnak.

Talk to the people in Istory.  A little girl tells you that she found something
nice when she went around the flower bed.  So walk around the flower bed above
the armor shop and you'll find the Black Magic spell Toad.  Another girl says
that the sheep in the corner kicks people.  So stand behind it and talk to it
and it'll kick you over the fence.  On the other side of the fence is a bard
who will teach you the Love Song.  There's one old man in Istory who suggests
that something is hidden behind the waterfall near Istory.  And there is, but
you won't be able to get it until much later in the game, so don't worry about
it for now.

An old woman in Istory tells you that an old man who hits you with thunder
wanders in the forest to the east.  So walk around the eastern forest and
you'll encounter Ramuh.  When you beat him you'll get the item Ramuh, and when
you use that item, you'll gain the ability to call Ramuh as an Esper.  After
you beat him once, you won't encounter him again.  In that forest you can also
get into a fight with five MiniDragons.  They're another one of Final Fantasy
5's super enemies.  Going into the forest is optional, so you don't have to
fight them if you don't want to, but they're there if you want the challenge.
See the Super Enemies Strategies section of this guide for tips on how to beat

                  WALKTHROUGH PART 22 - RUINED CITY
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells: Size (White), Emission (Blue)
Treasures: Shuriken x2
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
256 Sandworm                     Boss in Quicksand Desert
xxx Hole                         Boss in Quicksand Desert
059 Sandboil                     Quicksand Desert in world 1
060 Desert Killer                Quicksand Desert in world 1
061 Sand Bear                    Quicksand Desert in world 1
257 Cray Claw                    Boss of the Ruined City
258 Adamantoise                  Boss in the meteor at Tycoon

The old man at the inn in Crescent mentioned that the ruins of the ancient
Lonka civilization are on the western continent.  And you can fly to them and
see them from above, but there are no forests near them, so you can't land and
walk there.  And if you try to walk there from the Ancient Library, you won't
be able to get through the Quicksand Desert.  Head to the Ancient Library and
Cid and Mid will suggest you go west to the Quicksand Desert anyway.  And now
when you do, they'll show up and help you get through it.  There'll be a boss
fight.  The Sandworm will move from hole to hole.  If you attack a hole that
the Sandworm isn't in, it'll counterattack with Demi.  You can't hurt the
holes, only the Sandworm.

Once the fight is over, make your way through the desert.  The exit is to the
south.  There's a Pyramid in the desert, but you can't get into it for now.
You'll come back for it later in the game.  After you get out of the Quicksand
Desert, walk south to the Ruined City.  You might get into a fight with a
D.Chimera if you walk through the desert on the way there, so avoid the desert.
In the Ruined City you'll see King Tycoon, but he'll run away.  Keep chasing
him, and eventually you'll fall into a new area.  Make your way through that
new area.  You'll come to a room that has a lever that you can push to open the
door to the north.  Don't go through the door to the north yet, though.
Instead, go to the south, and you'll find a room where you can rest.  That room
also has a lever that you can use to eventually get some treasures.  (If you
choose not to push the level the first time, it'll give you the option of
pulling it right away.)  Then go through the door to the north.  The steamship
that sunk is here, and you can go back into its engine room and fight the
enemies there if you want.  There's also an airship.  When you get the airship,
you'll have to fight another boss.  After that, you'll be able to fly around
with the airship.

If you go back to Tycoon and stay the night, you can witness a flashback.  Fly
back to the Ruined City and it'll start flying.  Go back to where you found the
airship and Cid and Mid will say they will help you reach the flying Lonka
Ruins if you get some adamantium, which is in the meteor near Tycoon.  So head
back there and get it.  You'll be attacked by a boss.  Once you beat it, go
back and give the adamantium to Cid and Mid.

At this point you can go to the Flying Lonka Ruins.  But first you can find and
fight the enemy Prototype if you want.  It's another one of Final Fantasy 5's
super enemies.  It's optional, so you don't have to fight it if you don't want
to (in which case you should skip to the next part of the walkthrough), but
it's there if you want the challenge.  Prototype is found on the island that is
the second southwest from Crescent.  Prototype has really strong defense, so it
can be hard to do any damage to him.  See the Super Enemies Strategies section
of this guide for tips on how to beat him.  You can learn the Blue Magic spell
Emission from Prototype, although if you don't want to fight him now, you'll
have another chance to learn it in the next part of the walkthrough.

Garkimasra in the basement of Worus Castle also has very high defense, so if
you're able to beat Prototype, you can go back and beat Garkimasra too if you
want to.  And you can go back to Jacole Cave and beat Skull Eater.  Although in
addition to strong defense, Skull Eater also has a high Evade rate, so it might
take you several tries before you hit him.  See the Super Enemies Strategies
section of this guide for tips on how to beat them too.

If you really want a challenge, try casting a spell on Skull Eater, and that
will cause it to call four more Skull Eaters to help it fight you.  The spell
has to hit it in order to cause it to call four more Skull Eaters, and it has a
high Magic Evade rate too, so make sure to use a spell that will always hit
(like Fire).

You'll still be able to fight Prototype, Garkimasra, and Skull Eater any time
in the next two parts of the walkthrough, but after that there'll be a long
period where they aren't available.  Then you'll have another opportunity to
fight them late in the game, but by that time they shouldn't really be
considered super enemies.  I recommend fighting them now.  Although you could
have tried to fight them even earlier, when you could first encounter them.
You could even fight Prototype back when you had control of the steamship.
(Although once you traded it for the Black Chocobo, you couldn't get to the
island that has Prototype anymore, since it doesn't have any forests in which
the Black Chocobo can land.)


----------------------------------------------------------------------
               WALKTHROUGH PART 23 - FLYING LONKA RUINS
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Emission (Blue, if you didn't learn it earlier), Blowfish (Blue),
WhiteWind (Blue), L4 Qrter (Blue)
Treasures: Gold Armor, Elixir, PhenixDwn, Gold Shield, HiPotion, 5000 gil,
Shuriken, Ancient Sword, Full Moon, Power Ring, Cabin, Ether
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
xxx Flame Thrower                Boss at the entrance to the Lonka Ruins
xxx Rocket Launcher              Boss at the entrance to the Lonka Ruins
260 Launcher                     Boss at the entrance to the Lonka Ruins
261 Launcher                     Boss at the entrance to the Lonka Ruins
259 Soul Cannon                  Boss at the entrance to the Lonka Ruins
062 Ra Mage                      Lonka Ruins
063 Ronkan Knight                Lonka Ruins
064 Stone Mask                   Lonka Ruins
065 Enchanted Fan                Lonka Ruins
066 Lamia                        Lonka Ruins
067 Archeotoad                   Lonka Ruins
068 Hydra                        Lonka Ruins
069 Ghidra                       Lonka Ruins
262 Archeoaevis                  Boss of Lonka Ruins

Fly up to the Flying Lonka Ruins and defeat the cannons.  They can be either
Flameguns or Rockets.  If you didn't learn the Blue Magic spell Emission
earlier, then you can learn it here from the Flameguns.  Although it's possible
for each of the four cannon fights to be against Rockets, in which case you
won't have a chance to learn Emission here.  If you defeat all four cannons and
you still haven't learned Emission, then you could load your game from before
you fought them and try again.  After the four fights against the cannons,
you'll have a fight against one giant cannon.  When you win that, you can enter
the Lonka Ruins.

There are some hidden passages in the Flying Lonka Ruins.  You can give one of
your characters the Thief's Passages ability (or give them the job of Thief,
which automatically has the Passages ability) to make it easier to find your
way around.

You can also learn the Blue Magic spell Blowfish from the monster Lamia here if
you use the Mediator's !Control ability on it.  You can learn the Blue Magic
spell WhiteWind from the monster Whirl Demon here if you use the Mediator's
!Control ability on it.  Or if you don't want to control the monster, charming
a monster may result in it doing something that you would otherwise have to
control it to get it to do.  Although some monsters can't be charmed.  And if
you charm monsters, they will cast damaging Blue Magic spells on the monsters
rather than on you.  You can reflect some of the Blue Magic spells onto your
characters by putting a wall on the monster, but some of the spells can't be
reflected.  You can get a spell to cast a wall on someone later in the game.

At the end of the ruins you'll find King Tycoon.  Talk to him and you'll fight
ArchaeAvis, another boss.  ArchaeAvis has five forms, and you fight them one
after another.  Although if you kill its first form with the Monk's Counter
ability, you won't have to fight the other forms.

After you beat ArchaeAvis, don't proceed into the next room.  Walk around in
that room until you get into a fight with a monster called Hydra (it's also
called Hydra in the Playstation translation, but it's called Ghidra in the
Gameboy Advance translation).  You can learn the Blue Magic spell L4 Qrter from
Hydra.  (Not Hyudora, that's a different enemy.  Hyudora is called Hyudra in
the Playstation translation and it's called Hydra in the Gameboy Advance
translation.)  Hydra casts L4 Qrter when you kill it.  Although L4 Qrter will
only work on characters who are at a level that is a multiple of 4 (for
example, 4, 8, 12, 16, and so on).

Once you've learned all the Blue Magic spells here, go into the next room, and
you'll see another scene.  When you finally get control again, land the
airship.  Galuf's gone, but you'll get him back soon.  You have some new jobs,
so consider switching your characters to them.  Go back to some of the towns
and buy new equipment for use with your new jobs, if you want.  Note that the
airship can only land on grass.

The Samurai and Chemist jobs can be useful, but they're a low priority.
Although they might be more useful than I give them credit for.  I never used
the Dragoon, but it may be more useful than I gave it credit for.  Dancer
sucks, don't waste your time with it.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                    WALKTHROUGH PART 24 - METEORS
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Titan (Esper)
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
265 Manticore                    Boss in the Meteor at the Ruins
264 Titan                        Boss in the Meteor at Karnak
263 Purobolos                    Boss in the Meteor at Worus

Go back to where you found the airship and Cid and Mid will have left a note
saying they're putting the adamantium back.  Go to the meteor near Tycoon and
you'll find Cid and Mid.  Then go to the other three meteors.  There will be a
boss fight at each meteor.  You can go to them in any order, but I recommend
going to the one near Karnak first.  There you'll fight Titan, and after you
defeat him you'll gain the ability to call him as an Esper.  Next I recommend
going to the meteor near the Lonka Ruins, where you'll have another boss fight.
Finally go to the meteor near the Worus Tower and you'll fight 6 enemies named
Puroboros.  Each time one of these dies, it'll attempt to cast Life 2 to revive
all his allies.  So try to kill them all at once using attacks that hit all
enemies for about the same amount of damage.  I recommend using the Esper
Titan.  Espers will actually cause them to respond by healing themselves, but
Titan is so strong that it does more damage than they can heal.  Or you could
try to Mute them so they can't cast Life 2.  Or just kill them over and over
again until they run out of MP and can't cast Life 2 anymore.

Once you've defeated the bosses at all the meteors, head for the warp and go to
Galuf's world.  If you were putting off doing anything (like getting the Dimen
Magic spell Drag from Worus, getting the Esper Shiva from Worus, letting Lone
Wolf out of jail in Worus, getting the Blue Magic spell AquaRake from the
D.Chimera in the desert south of Karnak, or fighting Prototype on the island
that is the second southwest from Crescent), then make sure you go do it now
before you leave this world.  You'll have another opportunity to fight
D.Chimera and Prototype late in the game, although by that time they shouldn't
really be considered super enemies.  You'll have another chance to get some
spells if you leave this world before you get them, but it won't be until much
later.  There's a shrine surrounded by mountains on a small island in the
middle of the world that you haven't visited yet, but you'll be back for that
later.

And there are some spells that you won't ever be able to get again (the Esper
Shiva, the Charm Song in Lix, and the Love Song in Istory).  (In the
Playstation translation those spells are called the Esper Shiva, TemptSong, and
Love Song.  In the Gameboy Advance translation those spells are called the
Esper Shiva, Alluring Air, and Romeo's Ballad.)  Although if you're playing the
SNES version of the game, you will have one last chance to get them later in
the game (I'll point it out when you get to it) if you use the "Skipping the
Pyramid" bug in the Bugs section.  Although that bug doesn't work in the
Gameboy Advance version of the game.  I'm not sure about the Playstation
version.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                   WALKTHROUGH PART 25 - WORLD TWO
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells: DethClaw (Blue, if you didn't learn it earlier)
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
070 Pao                          World map at beginning of world 2
266 Abductor (Butz Solo Battle)  Boss on the Solitary Island at beginning of
                                 world 2
071 Tarantula                    Exdeath's Castle before Kelgar transforms it
072 Shell Bear                   Exdeath's Castle before Kelgar transforms it
267 Gilgamesh (Dungeon)          Boss in Exdeath's Castle before Kelgar
                                 transforms it
073 Devilfish                    World map on the marshes and plains near
                                 Exdeath's Castle in world 2
074 Treant                       World map on the plains and in the forests
                                 near Exdeath's Castle in world 2
075 Strapparer                   World map on the plains near Exdeath's Castle
                                 in world 2
076 Merrow                       Big Bridge
077 Flying Killer                Big Bridge
078 Little Chariot               Big Bridge
079 Neo Garula                   Big Bridge
268 Gilgamesh (Bridge)           Big Bridge

You'll land on a small island.  After walking around for awhile, Lenna will
suggest you use a tent.  When you do you'll be attacked and taken to Exdeath's
Castle (even if you defeat the enemy that attacks you).  There'll be a short
scene, then you'll take control of Galuf, who will come to rescue the others.
Consider switching him to one of the jobs you got from the Earth Crystal.  The
exit is locked, but there's a door to the north with a save point and a spring
that will heal you.  Make your way to the basement, where you'll fight
Gilgamesh then reunite with the others.  You'll fight Gilgamesh several times
throughout the games, and some of those times you'll be able to steal some
great armor from him, but you can't steal it yet.  I'll tell you when you can.
Once you're all together go out of the castle (the exit is unlocked now).
There will still be one door in the castle that's locked, but you'll come back
to it later in the game.

If you didn't learn it earlier, you'll be able to learn the Blue Magic spell
DethClaw from the enemy Torrent on the plains and in the forests near Exdeath's
Castle.

Head west across the bridge.  You'll get attacked a few times on your way
across the bridge.  The monster encounters on the bridge are not random like
they are in other areas of the game.  They're only triggered on certain spots.
So if you avoid those spots you can avoid most of the fights.  Once you reach
the end of the bridge, you'll get thrown to the other side of the world.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                    WALKTHROUGH PART 26 - GROCIANA
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Treasures: 4400 gil, PhenixDwn
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
080 Tunneller                    World map near Rugor in world 2
081 Birostris                    World map near Rugor in world 2
082 Fairy Orc                    World map near Rugor in world 2
083 Devourer                     World map near Rugor in world 2
084 Mandrake                     World map near Rugor in world 2
085 Kuza Beast                   World map near Kuzar in world 2
086 Shield Dragon                Kuzar
088 Blood Slime                  Underground River
089 Acrophies                    Underground River
090 Moogle Eater                 Underground River
091 Lesser Lopros                Underground River
269 Tyrannosaur                  Boss of Underground River
092 Cactus                       World map in desert near Moogle Village in
                                 world 2
093 Sandcrawler                  World map in desert near Moogle Village in
                                 world 2

Head east.  In this area you'll encounter the monster Faerie Orc.  Faerie Orcs
will revive any members of your party who die, although they sometimes turn
them into zombies while doing that.  If you cast Cure on a Faerie Orc, it will
respond by casting Cure3 on your whole party.

Eventually you'll come to the town of Rugor.  Talk to the people there and play
the piano (it's behind a secret passageway in the pub).  If you go up on stage
in the pub you can earn 100 gil for dancing.  Make sure everyone has the job
you want them to have, then buy new equipment and magic in the shops.  The
White Magic spell Shell can be a useful defensive spell in fights against
bosses.  The towns in this world have some items for sale in their item shops
that weren't available before, so consider buying them.  You can see a scene if
you stay the night at the inn, if you want.  There's a little girl in the armor
shop who says she lost her Ribbon.  But you can't do anything about that now.
You can come back for it later in the game.

For lack of anything better to do, head south from Rugor when you're ready to
continue.  You'll find a castle, but there's not really anything you can do in
it now, so you'll have to continue on.  You can stop in and check out the
castle if you want first, though.  Galuf will tell you a little bit about it.
There's a really tough enemy in the castle called ShieldDrgn.  It's not that
tough when you come back later in the game, but if you fight it now it would
qualify as another one of Final Fantasy 5's super enemies.  You don't have to
go in now, so you don't have to fight it now if you don't want to, but it's
there if you want the challenge.  See the Super Enemies Strategies section of
this guide for tips on how to beat it.

Make your way south and east from the castle (your map will work here) and
you'll come to a forest with a moogle in it.  You can go past the moogle if you
want, but you won't be able to do anything.  Talk to the moogle then follow it
into the hole and make your way through the river.  Make sure to get the two
treasure chests along the way.  At the end of the cave you'll fight a boss,
then follow the moogle again.  If you follow the same path the moogle takes,
avoiding the desert, then you won't run into any enemies.  Although if you're
up for a challenge, you can go through the desert.  You can't run away from the
enemies you find there.  And they're very tough.  Sand Crawl is another one of
Final Fantasy 5's super enemies.  Go to the area where the moogle went and
you'll find its village hidden in the forest.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                 WALKTHROUGH PART 27 - MOOGLE VILLAGE
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Treasures: 1 gil, 10000 gil, Cabin, Dancing Dagger, Ether, PhenixDwn, Elf Cape
New monsters in this area (GBA name):  None

Talk to the moogle in the upper right hand corner.  Get the treasures in the
village (you have to put on the moogle suit to get the treasure chest in the
house on the left), then go back and talk to the moogle in the upper right hand
corner again.  Cara will come and bring you back to civilization.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                   WALKTHROUGH PART 28 - CASTLE BAL
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Exit (Dimen)
Treasures: Hero Drink, Angel Robe, Lamia Harp, Epee
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
099 Objet d'Art                  Castle Bal Basement
270 Abductor (Castle Bal)        Boss after Castle Bal
094 Aquathorn                    World map near Castle Bal in world 2
095 Weresnake                    World map near Castle Bal in world 2
096 Kornago                      World map near Castle Bal in world 2
097 Cursed Being                 World map near Castle Bal in world 2

Talk to the people in the castle and search for items.  Give one of your
characters the Thief's Passages ability (or give them the job of Thief, which
automatically has the Passages ability) so they'll be able to see the hidden
passages.  You won't be able to open the door in the basement yet, but you will
come back to it later in the game.  The Statues in the basement give a lot of
ABP.  It's the best place to gain ABP until very late in the game.  You can
kill them all with the Blue Magic spells L5 Doom or L3 Flare, or by using the
item Soft on them.

Go up the stairs in the room with the weapons and armor shops, and when you're
on the roof, go right to find some hidden stairs.  When you're back in the
weapons and armor shops, press the switch that you can see from the other side
of the wall and a doorway will open.  If you stand between the weapons and
armor salesmen, they'll give you a Lamia Harp.  Outside of the weapons and
armor shops, walk around in the pond in the lower left hand corner and you'll
be sucked into the moat.  Walk around the castle and search in the water to
find an Epee.  Go back around and back in the castle (hit the switch to get
back into the castle).  Buy new equipment and magic in the shops.

Once you've talked to Cara, you'll be able to leave and head north to Hiryuu
Valley.  You'll get into a fight as you leave.  Instead of heading north, you
can go back to Exdeath's Castle if you want.  It's to the east, through a short
cave.  But you won't be able to get into the castle because of the barrier.  In
the cave there's an optional enemy who is really tough.  You can get a lot of
money if you can defeat him.  You can try to fight him now if you want, but
he'll probably kill you.  I suggest you wait until later to try him.  I'll
mention him again then.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                      WALKTHROUGH PART 29 - KELB
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells: Requiem (Song)
Treasures: Potion x24, CornaJar
New monsters in this area (GBA name):  None

The exit to Kelb is locked, and so are all of the doors but one.  Go through
that door and you'll find another door that's locked, but on your way out
there'll be a scene then everything will be unlocked.  One of the wolves will
be in mourning for Fang.  In the inn there's a wolf who will give you 8
Potions.  He'll do that three times, then he'll run out.  One of the wolves
will teach you the song Requiem.

If you search the well you'll find a man who asks for a frog.  If you use the
Mediator's !Catch command to catch an enemy who looks like a frog, the guy in
the well will give you the CornaJar in exchange for it (and 10,000 gil).  There
are enemies who look like frogs right outside the town.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                 WALKTHROUGH PART 30 - HIRYUU VALLEY
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Golem (Esper), Hammer (Blue, if you didn't learn it earlier)
Treasures: 5000 gil, Cabin, Bone Mail, 7000 gil, Air Blade, Coronet, PhenixDwn
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
100 Drippy                       Hiryuu Valley
101 Lycaon                       Hiryuu Valley
102 Bone Dragon                  Hiryuu Valley
103 Poison Eagle                 Hiryuu Valley
104 Zombie Dragon                Hiryuu Valley
xxx ???                          Hiryuu Valley
271 Golem                        Hiryuu Valley
xxx Bone Dragon (Golem Battle)   Hiryuu Valley
xxx Zombie Dragon (Golem Battle) Hiryuu Valley
272 Dragon Pod                   Boss of Hiryuu Valley
273 Dragon Flower                Boss of Hiryuu Valley

Head north from Kelb and you'll come to the Hiryuu Valley.  If you didn't learn
it earlier, you'll be able to learn the Blue Magic spell Hammer (a.k.a. Magic
Hammer) here from the enemies called Drippy.  Make your way through Hiryuu
Valley.  At one point you'll see some bones lying on the ground.  Search them
and you'll find the Bone Mail.  The Bone Mail has the highest defense of any
piece of armor in the game and it makes its wearer immune to Instant Death
Attacks, Darkness, Poison status, Charm, Aging, and Berserk.  It also gives its
wearer the undead status.  As a result of that, most healing spells and items
hurt you and you can't be revived during a fight.  Although healing spells and
items work normally when you're not in a fight.  You can still be healed by the
Blue Magic spell WhiteWind or the Guard Ring.  And you can drain HP from
enemies using the Black Magic spell Drain, the Esper Sylph, the Chemist's mix
Drain Kiss, the Blue Magic spell Vampire, the Dance Jitterbug Duet, the
Dragoon's !DrgnSwd ability, or the Drain Sword, or by attacking an enemy after
using the Magic Sword spell Drain.  And if you equip something or use a Chemist
mix that lets you absorb damage from one element, then you can be healed using
spells of that element.  Since you're undead, you can be fully healed by the
Black Magic spell Doom, the Chemist's mix Death Potion, or the Blue Magic
spells Roulette (which won't necessarily hit the character you want it to hit)
and L5 Doom (which can only be cast on enemies, but can be reflected back onto
you if the enemy has a Wall, although then it won't necessarily hit the
character you want it to hit, and it will only work on characters who are at a
level that is a multiple of 5).  The Doom Axe and Assassin Dagger also
sometimes cast Doom when you attack with them, and that will also fully heal
someone with the Bone Mail, although getting attacked with those weapons will
still hurt on occasions when they don't cast Doom.  The Bone Mail absorbs
Poison damage, halves Ice damage, and is weak against Fire damage and Holy
damage.  As a result of that, characters with the Bone Mail can also be
partially healed by the Black Magic spell Bio, the Chemist's mix Poison Breath,
or by attacking them after using the Magic Sword spells Venom or Bio.

The Flame Shield, Flame Ring, Ice Shield, Bone Mail, and Coral Ring absorb
Fire, Fire, Ice, Poison, and Water damage, respectively.  The Chemist's mixes
Resist Fire, Resist Ice, and Resist Thunder let you absorb Fire, Ice, and
Thunder damage, respectively.

If you don't want to use the Bone Mail, I recommend that you sell it.
Otherwise the game will recommend that you use it every time you change jobs or
abilities (since it always automatically recommends that you use the armor with
the strongest defense).

In the area with the Bone Mail you will sometimes get into a fight with an
enemy named Golem and two other enemies.  The two other enemies will turn
against Golem and he will ask you for help.  Kill the two other enemies and
leave him alive (you might need to heal him in order for him to stay alive),
and you will get the item Golem, and when you use that item, you'll gain the
ability to call him as an Esper.  After you beat him once, you won't encounter
him again.  Golem can be a useful defensive spell in fights against bosses.

Eventually you'll come to a dead end with a door that won't open.  Walk around
in that room and you'll fall through the floor to another area.  Hit the switch
and a new path will open.  Continue through the mountain.  You'll have to go
through some hidden passages that even the Thief's Passages ability won't let
you see.  But you can see them when you get really close to them.  At the end
you'll fight a boss, then get the Hiryuu Plant.  If you kill one of the small
enemies before you kill the large enemy, then another small enemies will appear
in its place.  So kill the large enemy first.  Once you're done, take the
Hiryuu Plant back to the Hiryuu at Castle Bal.  Here and in future dungeons you
can use your new Dimen Magic spell Exit to leave quickly.  Even if you don't
have any characters trained in Dimen Magic, you could switch one character to a
Time Mage, then cast the spell, then switch back.

                 WALKTHROUGH PART 31 - CASTLE SURGATE
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Speed (Song), Float (Dimen)
Treasures: 5000 gil
Steal:  Genji Glove
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
105 Gobbledygook                 Zeza's Ship
274 Gilgamesh (Ship)             Boss of Zeza's Ship
275 Enkidu                       Boss of Zeza's Ship

Fly the Hiryuu to Guido's Cave (it's on an island to the north).  You'll have
to leave as soon as you get there.  If you go back to Kelb, Kelgar will suggest
that you go to Zeza's Castle, north of the Hiryuu Valley.  So fly to Zeza's
Castle.  Talk to the people there, search for items, and buy new equipment and
magic in the shops.  Search the book in the King's Room to get the Speed Song.
If you help the old woman reshelve books, then talk to her, she'll open a
passage to another room.  Note that the Monster Encyclopedia goes under M, not
in Periodicals.  If you put something on the wrong shelf, you can leave the
room then come back and try again.  There is nothing to be gained by checking
the upper left hand shelf.  Make sure to get the Dimen Magic spell Float.
After you reshelve the books and go into the new area, then it takes you back
outside the castle, go left and you will get to another area.

Once you're done in Surgate, go to the fleet east of Exdeath's Castle and land
on the big ship (it wasn't there until now).  Zeza will make you go downstairs
and take a nap.  Then you'll be attacked.  Kill the monsters.  You can use the
Thief's !Steal or !Capture commands to get the Genji Glove from Gilgamesh when
you fight him this time.  It's one of the strongest accessories.  After you
beat him, follow Zeza downstairs and you'll go to the Barrier Tower.  You can
rest in the lower floor of the sub if you need to.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                 WALKTHROUGH PART 32 - BARRIER TOWER
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  L3 Flare (Blue), L2 Old (Blue), Time Slip (Blue)
Treasures: 9000 gil, Drain Sword, 18000 gil, Goldpin
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
106 Neon                         Barrier Tower
107 Magnetite                    Barrier Tower
108 Reflect Knight               Barrier Tower
109 Traveler                     Barrier Tower
110 Level Tricker                Barrier Tower
111 Gravitator                   Barrier Tower
112 Ziggurat Gigas               Barrier Tower
276 Atomos                       Boss of Barrier Tower

Make your way through the Barrier Tower.  Two of the treasure chests here have
monsters inside them.  Which monsters you'll find in a treasure chest can vary,
but it's possible to get a Red Dragon.  You can learn the Blue Magic spell L3
Flare from it.  You have to use the Mediator's !Control ability in order to get
it to cast L3 Flare.  And even then it will only cast it on itself, so you have
to cast a Wall on it so L3 Flare will reflect off of it and onto you.  You
can't get the White Magic spell Wall until after the Barrier Tower, so if you
want to learn L3 Flare here, you'll have to use the Chemist's !Combine ability
to make a Dragon Armor (combine a PhenixDwn and a DragnFang), which casts Wall.
Or you could use the Mediator's !Catch ability to catch the enemy Neon (which
is randomly encountered in the Barrier Tower) and release it during your fight
against the Red Dragon.  You'll have to release at least two Neons, since
releasing the first one will cast Wall on you rather than the Red Dragon, then
the second Neon's Wall might bounce off the first Neon's Wall and hit the Red
Dragon (or it might cast Wall on one of your other characters).  Also note that
this spell only works on characters who are at a level that is a multiple of 3
(for example, 3, 6, 9, 12, and so on).)  If you want, you can wait to learn L3
Flare until a little later in the game after you've bought the White Magic
spell Wall.  I'll point out the next opportunity when you get to it.

You can also learn the Blue Magic spell L2 Old from here from the enemy
Tricker.  For that too, you have to use the Mediator's !Control ability in
order to get it to cast L2 Old then cast a Wall on it so L2 Old will reflect
off of it and onto you.  If you don't want to deal with casting a Wall before
you have the White Magic spell Wall, you'll have another chance to learn L2 Old
a little later in the game (I'll point it out).

You can also learn the Blue Magic spell Time Slip here from the enemy Traveler.
That one's simple.

The Drain Sword's attack power is good for this point in the game, and its
ability to drain HP from enemies is good at any point in the game, but its Hit%
of 25% is horrible.  Although you can get around that if you use it with the
!Aim, !Jump, !Throw, or !X-Fight commands or the Sword Dance.  Also note that
for most weapons the amount of damage that the Hunter's !X-Fight ability does
per hit is different than the amount of damage that you do by attacking
normally.  But it's the same for the Drain Sword.  And since !X-Fight hits four
times per round, that means it'll do four times as much damage as attacking
normally.

At the top of the tower you'll fight the boss Atmos.  Atmos will use really
tough attacks when all four of your characters are alive, but he'll use weak
attacks when you have at least one character dead.  So after he kills one of
your characters, the fight can be easier if you just leave that character dead.
After you beat him, Exdeath's Castle's barrier will be destroyed.  Although the
door in Exdeath's Castle is still locked, so you still can't get all the way
through it.  But you'll have control of the submarine, so you can go to Guido's
underwater cave.  But there are a few other places you can go first.  If you go
back to Kelb, Kelgar will react to Zeza's death.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                 WALKTHROUGH PART 33 - THE SUBMARINE
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Shoat (Esper)
Treasures: Guardian
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
176 Druid                        Cave to northwest lake in world 2
177 Ironback                     Cave to northwest lake in world 2
115 Cure Beast                   World map near northwest lake in world 2
116 Land Turtle                  World map near northwest lake in world 2
117 Dechirer                     World map near northwest lake in world 2
281 Catoblepas                   World map near northwest lake in world 2

Check your map while you're underwater and there will be marks for all the
places you should visit.  Go to the one furthest to the west (it's on the
western side of the continent with Castle Surgate), then go back up to the
surface.  You'll surface in a lake that's near the town of Mua, inside a ring
of mountains.  Talk to the people in Mua and play the piano.  Search the
barrels beside the pub and you'll find a Guardian.  Buy new equipment and magic
in the shops.  The White Magic spell Wall can be a useful defensive spell in
fights against bosses.  And the Dimen Magic spell Hast2 is even better than
Haste.  It works on all of your party members at once.  If you search the door
of the house that's southwest of the pub, it'll say that it's locked.  You
won't be able to open it yet, but you will come back to it later in the game.

Once you're done in Mua, get back in your submarine and go underwater.  Check
your map, and this time go to the mark furthest to the north.  Note that you
can rest downstairs in the submarine when it's docked at the cave.  Go through
the cave there (it's far north of Castle Surgate, in the southwest corner of
the lake surrounded by mountains).  You'll end up on the surface.  As you've
probably forgotten by now, there was an old man in Castle Surgate who said that
he saw a huge eyeball there and he's surprised that he survived the encounter.
Well it's time to hunt the monster with that eyeball.  Walk around and you'll
encounter Shoat.  When you beat it you'll get the item Shoat, and when you use
that item, you'll gain the ability to call Shoat as an Esper.  Like Ramuh, you
won't be able to encounter Shoat again after you beat him once.  Note that
there's also a Chocobo Forest in this area, but you can't ride the chocobo you
find there (it doesn't really have any purpose in the game).  Once you get
Shoat, go back to your submarine and head to Guido's Cave.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                  WALKTHROUGH PART 34 - GUIDO'S CAVE
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Aero 3 (Blue)
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
113 Dark Aspic                                  Guido's Cave
114 Metamorph [Ifrit, Wyvern, Enchanted Fan]    Guido's Cave
114 Metamorph [Ramuh, Crew Dust, Zombie Dragon] Guido's Cave
114 Metamorph [Shiva, Gaelicat, Elf Toad]       Guido's Cave
114 Metamorph [Shiva, Ifrit, Ramuh]             Guido's Cave

You can enter Guido's Cave underwater using the submarine.  It's the last mark
on the underwater map (it's east and a little north of Castle Surgate).  One
room has five doors, and you can open one at a time by moving a rock from one
treasure chest to another.  One room has a switch that'll open the path through
the cave in another room.  Guido's Cave has more hidden passages that you can
only see when you get really close to them.  So don't assume something is a
dead end until you've walked up to all its walls.

In Guido's Cave there is an enemy named Metamorpha that changes into other
enemies.  One of them will change into a Whirl Demon, and you can learn the
Blue Magic spell Aero 3 from that.  Although there are a few different types of
Metamorpha, and some of them won't turn into Whirl Demon.  The one that can
turn into Whirl Demon can only turn into Whirl Demon, Ifrit, or Wyvern.  So if
you're fighting a Metamorpha that turns into something else, then it's not the
one that will turn into Whirl Demon.

At the end of the cave you'll find Guido, and he'll give you the Elder Branch
and send you to the Great Forest of Mua.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
              WALKTHROUGH PART 35 - GREAT FOREST OF MUA
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  TinySong (Blue)
Treasures: 2500 gil, Ether, 4900 gil, PhenixDwn, 9500 gil, Cabin, Giant Drink,
Elixir, MornStar, Aegis Shield, Flame Shield (if you didn't get the Aegis
Shield), Soot, Flame Sword
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
118 Mini Magician                Great Forest of Mua
119 Galajelly                    Great Forest of Mua
120 Mammon                       Great Forest of Mua
121 Imp                          Great Forest of Mua
122 Wyrm                         Great Forest of Mua
277 Crystal                      Boss of Great Forest of Mua
278 Crystal                      Boss of Great Forest of Mua
279 Crystal                      Boss of Great Forest of Mua
280 Crystal                      Boss of Great Forest of Mua
xxx Exdeath (Galuf Solo Battle)  Boss of Great Forest of Mua

Go back to Mua, then walk east to the forest.  Walk up to the dead end and the
Elder Branch will create an entrance to the forest.  If you're playing on an
emulator, you can disable some of the layers of graphics to help see better
when you're not in a fight (press 2 and 3 with ZsNES).  Make your way through
the forest.  You can learn the Blue Magic spell TinySong from the enemy
MiniMage here.  Some trees will have a hole in them.  Search the hole to create
an opening to another part of the forest.

Once you get part of the way through the forest, there will be a fire.  At that
point you'll have an opportunity to open a treasure chest.  Don't open it now.
Right now it has an Aegis Shield, but if you wait for awhile, the fire will
turn it into a Flame Shield.  There are advantages to both shields, so there's
no clear choice.  The Flame Shield's defense, evade rate, and magic defense are
all a little bit higher, and it absorbs Fire damage.  But the Aegis Shield's
magic evade rate is much higher.  After you wait awhile, a Moogle will come to
your rescue.  Follow it into its hole and you can wait there until the fire is
out.  You can heal at the spring there.  Once the Moogle lets you leave, get
the Flame Shield and continue through the forest.  At the end, the Elder Branch
will create an entrance through another dead end.

Inside the Elder Tree you'll fight four bosses.  They use weak attacks when
they have a lot of HP, then they use stronger attacks when they get low on HP.
So kill them one at a time, so you'll never have to deal with more than one of
them being low on HP at a time.  One of them will use the spell Earth Shaker,
and if you cast the Dimen Magic spell Float on your party before the fight, it
won't hurt you.  You can win the throwing weapon Soot from each of the four
bosses.  It's not really a very good weapon, but I note it because it's rare.

After the fight there'll be another fight.  That second fight will end the same
way regardless of whether your HP stays above 0.  Note that the fight will end
immediately if you kill yourself with the Black Magic spell Break, the Blue
Magic spells Exploder or Fusion, the Chemist mix Explosive, or the Doom Axe's
Doom spell.  Or if you're wearing the Bone Mail, then you can kill yourself
with the White Magic spell Life; the item PhenixDwn; or the Chemist mixes
Revive, Resurrection, Reincarnation, Fenix Down, or Kiss of Life.  Note that
Exploder and Explosive will cause 1 damage to Exdeath if you have 0 HP left.

Once the fight is over, give Cara a job and ability and equip her.  She'll pick
up right where her predecessor left off.  If you go back to Kelb, Kelgar will
react to what happened.  The door in Exdeath's Castle will now finally be
unlocked, so you can go there and fight him now if you want.  But there's one
other thing to do first.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                   WALKTHROUGH PART 36 - GIL TURTLE
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Treasures: 10 gil, 20 gil, 40 gil, 80 gil, 160 gil, 320 gil, 640 gil, 1280 gil,
2560 gil, 5120 gil, 10240 gil, 20480 gil, 40960 gil
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
098 Undergrounder                Cave between Castle Bal and Exdeath's Castle
                                 in world 2
282 Gil Turtle                   Cave between Castle Bal and Exdeath's Castle
                                 in world 2.  At the end of the hidden path
                                 that branches off to the south (it's just
                                 after the first set of stairs).

Fly back to Castle Bal, then go east to the cave.  The cave goes from Castle
Bal to the bridge to Exdeath's Castle.  But along the way there's a hidden path
that branches off to the south (it's just after the first set of stairs).  Go
along that path and you'll come to a door.  On the other side of that door is
the enemy Gil Turtle.  He's another one of Final Fantasy 5's super enemies.
He's optional, so you don't have to fight him if you don't want to (in which
case you should skip to the next part of the walkthrough).  I alluded to this
enemy earlier in the walkthrough, but suggested that you wait until later to
try to fight him.  Now it's later.  After you go through Exdeath's Castle, you
won't be able to fight the Gil Turtle anymore, so this is your last chance.
See the Super Enemies Strategies section of this guide for tips on how to beat
him.

Past the door you get money for every step you take.  The path only extends for
a little bit, but it's a tough stretch.  You might encounter the Gil Turtle
multiple times along the path.  Make sure your characters are fully healed
after you beat him, in case you encounter him again.  Once you get to the end
and have gotten all the money, leave and head for Exdeath's Castle.  Although
you can go outside, then go back in and get the money multiple times if you
want.

                                 transforms it

Make sure you got the Esper Shoat (called Catoblepas in the Gameboy Advance
translation) before you go back to Exdeath's Castle.  You won't have another
chance to get it once you go through Exdeath's Castle.  When you're ready, head
back to Exdeath's Castle.  You can steal a Spear from the enemy Jail Bear which
can be found in the basement of Exdeath's Castle before you go through the top
floors of the castle.  It's not really a very good weapon, but I note it
because it's rare.

The door that had always been locked before now is finally open.  So go through
it and make your way to the top floor of the castle.  You'll run into a dead
end, but when you backtrack a bit Galuf and the werewolves will open the way
through the castle.  After that, there will be different enemies in the castle
than there used to be.

If you didn't learn it earlier, you'll be able to learn the Blue Magic spell L2
Old from the enemy Magic Drgn.  Note that L2 Old will only work on characters
who are at a level that is a multiple of 2 (for example, 2, 4, 6, 8, and so
on).  If you didn't learn it earlier, you'll be able to learn the Blue Magic
spell L3 Flare here from the enemy Red Dragon.  You have to use the Mediator's
!Control ability on it to get it to use the spell, and even then it'll only use
it on itself, so you have to cast the White Magic spell Wall on it so that it
will be reflected back at you.  Note that L3 Flare will only work on characters
who are at a level that is a multiple of 3 (for example, 3, 6, 9, 12, and so
on).

You can win a Power Staff from the enemy DarkWizard that can be found here in
Exdeath's Castle.  It's not really a very good weapon, but I note it because
it's rare.

There are some treasure chests in hidden passages in Exdeath's Castle.  Giving
one of your characters the Thief's Passages ability (or giving them the job of
Thief, which automatically has the Passages ability) will help you find them.
There are also some places in Exdeath's Castle where you have to walk through
boiling water.  That will damage you unless your characters are Floating (which
you can do with the Dimen Magic spell Float) or if you give one of your
characters the Geomancer's DmgFloor ability (or give them the job of Geomancer,
which automatically has the DmgFloor ability).

Step on the skull on the ground on floor 7 and the bridge will start moving.
Press A to stop it.  On floor 10 there will be some skulls on the ground.  Some
of them will create or hide bridges.  Some of them won't do anything.  Some of
them are pitfalls, so it can be helpful to give someone in your party the
Geomancer's Pitfalls ability (or give them the job of Geomancer, which
automatically has the Pitfalls ability) to help you avoid dropping down to the
lower level.  Go to the skull at the top of the screen and you'll be
transported to another area.  Search the thing in front of you and you'll get
into a fight with Carbunkle.  When you beat him you'll gain the ability to call
him as an Esper.  Crbnkl can be a useful defensive spell in fights against
bosses.  It casts the White Magic spell Wall on all of your party members at
once.  After you beat him, go back to the area with all the skull switches on
the ground, and this time go to the skull at the bottom of the screen.  That'll
open the bridge to the next area, so continue through the castle.

On floor 11 go through the stairs on the right and get the treasures.  Then go
back and open the treasure chest in the middle of the room, then go up the
stairs at the top of the room.  You'll be attacked by Gilgamesh.  Gilgamesh
won't appear unless the treasure chest in the middle of the room is open when
you go up the stairs at the top of the room, and the treasure chest closes
whenever you leave the room.  After you've been fighting him for awhile he'll
change to another form.  After that, you can use the Thief's !Steal or !Capture
commands to get the Genji Helmet from him.  It's one of the best helmets in the
game.

You'll get the general sword Excailbur after the fight.  When used with the
Blue Magic spell GblinPnch or the Ninja's !Throw ability, it does as much
damage as a normal weapon with an attack power of 100.  But its attack power
when you use it normally is actually really weak, even though it says it is
strong.  Like with the Bone Mail, you should sell it if you don't want the game
to keep automatically equipping you with it when you change jobs or abilities.

Make sure you got the Esper Crbnkl (you won't have another chance), then
continue on through the castle.  You'll fight Exdeath.  You can learn the Blue
Magic spell Condemn from him.  If you miss it, you'll have another chance to
learn Condemn a little later in the game (I'll point it out).  When you beat
him, you'll end up back near Tycoon Castle.

                  WALKTHROUGH PART 38 - WORLD THREE
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells: Magic (Song)
Treasures: Cabin, Chicken Knife, BraveBld (if you don't get the Chicken Knife)
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
286 Antlion                      Boss in cave near Tule in world 3

142 Bulette                      World map near Pyramid in world 3

Go to Tycoon (there's nowhere else you can go right now, since rivers are
blocking your path).  Talk to the Chancellor and you'll split up.  Earlier in
the game you couldn't get into the King's Room, but if you go there now you can
see a flashback by reading the King's Journal.  Have Butz go talk to Cara on
the balcony, then have them leave Tycoon.  You'll get news that a bridge has
been built to the west, so go over it and go to the Pirates' Cave and you'll
find your Chocobo Boco.  Boco can go over rivers, so go back to Tycoon and head
north past it.  You can stop in Tule if you want, but there's not much to do
there.  Continue west of Tule and you'll get attacked by an Antlion.  Faris
will come to rescue you.  Climb up the rope and Faris will rejoin your party.
Continue on and you'll come to Guido's Cave.  Talk to him then there'll be a
scene and you'll go to the Ancient Library.  There you'll get the Sealed Book,
which will let you enter the Pyramid in the Quicksand Desert.

But before you go to the Pyramid, there are a few other things you can do.  Go
to the top of the Ancient Library and one of the people will teach you the
Magic Song.  Make sure to get the Magic Song, since you won't be able to get it
after the next part of the walkthrough.  At this point in the game you can also
use the "Skipping the Pyramid" bug in the Bugs section to get some items that
you would normally have to wait until later to get.  And that bug will give you
your only chance to get the Esper Shiva, the Charm Song, and the Love Song if
you missed them in world one.  You have to do it before you leave the Ancient
Library, though.  That bug works in the SNES version of the game, but it
doesn't work in the Gameboy Advance version.  I'm not sure about the
Playstation version.

Leave the Ancient Library and head north to Castle Surgate.  Reshelve the books
for the old lady again and go through the passage she opens.  Search the boxes
in the room after that and you'll find a Cabin.  You wouldn't have been able to
get this until now, since there used to be someone standing in the way.  If you
let Lone Wolf out of jail in Worus, then he'll have taken the Cabin.  You can
go north and visit Karnak if you want, but there's nothing to do there.

Go west to the Quicksand Desert.  But before going to the Pyramid, go further
west and into Mua.  Now the door of the house that's southwest of the pub is
unlocked.  Make your way through the forest.  It's a twisted path with dead
ends that you can't see, so it can be hard to get through it.  Go down, right,
down, left, up, right, then down.  You'll get your choice of the BraveBld or
Chicken Knife.  The Chicken Knife is probably a better choice.  See the
information on the BraveBld and Chicken Knife in the Weapons section for more
information.

The Chicken Knife's attack power increases every time you run away from enemies
(until it gets up to 127).  So if it isn't at 127 already, it might be good to
spend some time running away from enemies to make it stronger.  When you're
ready, head for the Pyramid.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                    WALKTHROUGH PART 39 - PYRAMID
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Condemn (Blue, if you didn't get it earlier)
Treasures: Ice Shield, Cursed Ring, Flame Shield, DarkMatter, White Suit,
Elixir x2, Thornlet, Black Suit, Crystal Armor, DarkMatter, Dark Suit,
DarkMatter x3, 8000 gil, 9000 gil, Earth Hammer, 10000 gil, Cabin, Ribbon,
Goldpin, Guard Ring, Elixir x2, DarkMatter x2, 12000 gil
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
288 Gargoyle                     Boss at the entrance to the Pyramid
143 Lamia Queen                  Pyramid

145 Ushabti                      Pyramid
151 The Damned                   Inside treasure chests in the Pyramid and
                                 randomly encountered in the Solitary Island
                                 Temple
153 Sekhmet                      Pyramid
148 Mummy                        Boss in Pyramid
149 Aspis                        Pyramid
146 Archeosaur                   Inside treasure chests in the Pyramid
152 Grand Mummy                  Boss in Pyramid
150 Mecha Head                   Pyramid
287 Melusine                     Boss at Elder Tree after the Pyramid

Make your way through the Pyramid.  You'll have to do it without Lenna.  Some
of the treasure chests here have monsters inside them.  If you didn't learn it
earlier, you'll be able to learn the Blue Magic spell Condemn from the monster
Cursed One that is inside some treasure chests.  Although sometimes which
monsters you'll find in a treasure chest can vary.  You have to control the
Cursed One in order to get it to cast Condemn, and then you have to give it an
Ether in order for it to have enough MP to cast it.  If you don't learn it
here, you'll have another chance to fight them a little later in the game (I'll
point it out).

The Cursed Ring has great stats, but it's cursed.  It kills you 50 seconds into
each battle.  Note that unlike Cursed items in some other Final Fantasy games,
this Cursed Ring will never lose its curse.  The Thornlet has the highest
defense of any helmet in the game, but it causes you to constantly lose HP in
battle.  Like with the Bone Mail, you should sell the Cursed Ring and Thornlet
if you don't want the game to keep automatically equipping you with them when
you change jobs or abilities.

The enemy MachinHead in the Pyramid is the only enemy in the game that can
defend itself against the Dragoon's !Jump ability.

On Floor 5 you'll have the opportunity to randomly encounter an enemy named
Sekmet in battle.  Normally if you kill him, he says that his brother at the
tower will avenge him.  It's possible to steal Thief Gloves from Sekmet.  The
Thief Glove increases the success rate of the !Steal command, which can be very
useful.  Thief Gloves can't be bought and only one can be found.  Stealing them
from Sekmet is the only way to get four of them.  Although like Ramuh and
Shoat, you won't be able to encounter Sekmet again after you beat him once.  If
you want, you can get into a fight with him, steal from him, run away, and then
repeat the process.  Or in the SNES version of the game you can Berserk him,
then you'll be able to beat him and then encounter him again later, since his
being Berserked will keep the game from realizing that he was beaten.  Although
that doesn't work in the Gameboy Advance version.  I'm not sure about the
Playstation version.

There are some treasure chests in hidden passages in the Pyramid.  Giving one
of your characters the Thief's Passages ability (or giving them the job of
Thief, which automatically has the Passages ability) will help you find them.
Although here you can be dropped into the hidden passages from the floor above,
so it's easier to discover them even if you don't use the Thief's Passages
ability.  On Floor 8 the ground will shift in some places, and you'll have to
wait for it to move to where you want it to be until you proceed.  And you
should proceed over it.  But first you should fall down to the lower floor,
where you'll be able to pick up a treasure chest that you wouldn't otherwise be
able to get.  Then go back up and continue through the Pyramid.  At the top
grab the tablet, then leave.  Head back towards the Ancient Library to pick up
your airship.  You'll fight a boss along the way.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                  WALKTHROUGH PART 40 - THE AIRSHIP
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells: Power (Song), Hero (Song), Syldra (Esper), MghtyGrd (Blue)
Treasures: 3 of the legendary sealed weapons, Ribbon, Cabin, Mirage Vest, Thief
Knife, MagicLamp
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
087 Exdeath's Soul               Kuzar
154 Slug                         World map near Castle Bal in world 3

197 Nix                          Sea south of Mirage in world 3
199 Vilia                        Sea in southwest corner of the world in world
                                 3
200 Gel Fish                     Sea in southwest corner of the world in world
                                 3
201 Rukh                         Sea west of Crescent in world 3
202 Sea Devil                    Sea west of Crescent in world 3
203 Stingray                     The northern part of the sea that is southwest
                                 of Carwen in world 3

With the airship you can fly directly into the Cleft of Dimension (the entrance
is over Tycoon Castle) and finish the game now, if you want.  Although as Guido
suggested, it'd probably be better to get the other three tablets so you can
get the legendary sealed weapons first.  (Plus if you go into the Cleft of
Dimension now, you're cheating yourself out of the part of the game where you
get the other three tablets.)  You can go directly to the location of the
second tablet now, but there are a lot of other things you can do before that
too.  First, of course, fly to the Sealed Castle Kuzar and pick out three of
the legendary sealed weapons.  Which three you should pick first depends on
what jobs you're using now, and what type of weapons those jobs can equip.  See
the Legendary Sealed Weapons section for information on them before making your
choice, if you want.  Note that there are two weapons that say their names are
Sasuke's Katana and Firebute when you look at them in Kuzar.  Those are
actually Hardened and the Flame Whip, respectively.  Also note that the Rune
Axe does more damage than its attack power might suggest.  See exception 3 in
Part 5 of the Stats Section for more information.

The location of the Sealed Castle of Kuzar in world 2 corresponded to the
forest in world 1 where the powers of the four crystals gathered, where Exdeath
was sealed.  Now in world 3 there will be an enemy that you can encounter in
Kuzar named ExdethSoul.  Note that you actually could've predicted the location
of the Earth Crystal using that forest's location.  If you draw a line on the
map between the Water Crystal and the Fire Crystal, and you draw another line
between the Wind Crystal and the Earth Crystal, then that forest is the
location where the lines intersect each other.  Since you knew where the Wind,
Water, and Fire Crystals were and where the forest was, you could've figured
out the direction of the Earth Crystal.  Knowing all this doesn't help you with
anything, but I find it interesting.

Next go to Rugor and you can get a Ribbon from the girl in the armor shop
(through a secret passage).  If you had talked to her earlier, she would've
said she'd lost her Ribbon.

Then go to Carwen.  Search the barrels in the upper right hand corner of the
town and you'll find a Cabin.  You wouldn't have been able to get this until
now, since there used to be someone standing in the way.  If you let Lone Wolf
out of jail in Worus, then he'll have taken the Cabin.

Next go to Crescent.  If you've played all seven of the pianos in the towns
you've visited so far, the bard in the lower right hand corner will teach you
the Power Song.  As a reminder, there are pianos in Tule, Carwen, Karnak,
Crescent, Jacole, Rugor (through a secret passage), and Mua, and you can go
back and play them now if you missed one.

You can visit Jacole, Castle Bal, and Kelb too if you want, but there's nothing
to do there.  The wolf in Kelb who was in mourning for Fang explains that Fang
was the name of the werewolf who tried to protect the Fire Crystal.  Nobody
ever seems to mention the soldier who died trying to protect the Water Crystal.
You don't even learn his name.  He looked like he was from Castle Bal or Castle
Surgate.  You can ride the Hiryuu at Castle Bal, but by this point in the game
it can't take you anywhere new.

Go to the giant waterfall near where Istory used to be.  Approach it from above
and search and you'll find the MagicLamp.  You have to walk along rivers to get
there, so get there by riding Boco (you probably left him near Guido's Cave).
From Guido's Cave, ride him east, then north, then west to get there.  There
were mountains blocking your path earlier, but the path is clear now.

Next fly to Carwen.  Land your airship in the water just southwest of Carwen.
Sail around in the part of that sea that is as far north as you can get, and
eventually you'll encounter the enemy Stingray.  It's found in the same part of
the sea as Sahagin, Sea Avis, and Th.Anemone.  You can learn the Blue Magic
spell MghtyGrd (a.k.a. Big Guard) from Stingray.  Note that you must use the
Mediator's !Control ability to get it to cast the spell on you.  MghtyGrd can
be a useful defensive spell in fights against bosses.  It casts the White Magic
spells Armor and Shell and the Dimen Magic spell Float on all of your party
members at once.  You can steal the RuneEdge from the Stingray.  The RuneEdge
can be one of the most powerful weapons in the game.  It does more damage than
its attack power might suggest.  See exception 3 in Part 5 of the Stats Section
for more information.

Take your airship to the southernmost piece of land on the map, southwest of
Crescent.  Walk around in the small forest there, and eventually you'll enter
the town of Mirage.  You can enter the pub from the back.  Search the barrels
there for a Thief Knife.  Downstairs you'll find someone who says he'll give
you a gift if you take a trip around the world on a Chocobo.  So go back and
get Boco.  In world 3, the continents make something of a ring around an inner
ocean (the part with Crescent and Mirage is especially pronounced).  Ride Boco
around that ring.  When you get back to your starting point, take the airship
back to Mirage, and the guy there will give you the Mirage Vest.

Talk to everyone in Mirage.  The weapon, armor, and magic shops have two
salesmen each.  Give one of your characters the Thief's Passages ability (or
give them the job of Thief, which automatically has the Passages ability) so
they'll be able to see the hidden passages.  Searching the box in the armor
shop will open the path to the second salesman.  You can get to the second
salesman in the magic shop by entering the shop from the left.  The back
entrance to the pub will lead to the second weapons salesman.  There will be
one door that you can't open now, but you will come back to it later in the
game.  The Black Chocobo is in Mirage (it's through a hidden passage).
Catching it will let you fly it in addition to the airship, which can be useful
since the airship can't land in forests, but the Black Chocobo can.  But you
don't need the Black Chocobo just yet.  For now just buy new equipment and
magic in the shops and play the piano (it's also through a hidden passage).
  Mirage's items shop sells Elixirs, so consider buying them too.

Now that you've played the last piano, go back to Crescent and the bard will
teach you the Hero Song.

Then go back and take your airship to the Pirates' Cave.  There you'll get the
Esper Syldra.

At this point you can also go back and get any spells that you missed in World
One.  Some of the Blue Magic spells won't be available in the same places that
they were available in World One, but you can still get all of them (although
you won't get another chance to get some of them until later in the game).  See
the magic sections to find out where in this world you can get spells that you
missed earlier.  Note that if you missed the Esper Shiva, the Charm Song, the
Love Song, the Esper Shoat, the Esper Crbnkl, or the Magic Song, then you won't
be able to get them anymore.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                      WALKTHROUGH PART 41 - ODIN
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Odin (Esper)
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
290 Odin                         Boss in Castle Bal basement in world 3

This part of the walkthrough is optional, and it's fairly tough.  You can skip
it and come back later if you want to, but you should be able to handle it now.
Go through the Cave of Jacole.  Press the switches and search the treasure
chests (even the empty ones) to open paths.  There's one wall with a line of
switches.  Only one of them will open the path to the next area, and its
location changes.  As one of the people in Jacole said, if you wait patiently,
the right one will be highlighted.  You may remember that in world 1 you could
climb the wall at the end and come up outside.  Now you'll come up in the
basement of Castle Bal, which is now nearby.  You can go down and unlock the
door, then rest and save and come back if you want to (once you unlock the
door, you'll be able to come back through it).  Go north to the top of the
basement and fight Odin.  When you beat him you'll gain the ability to call him
as an Esper.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                    WALKTHROUGH PART 42 - BAHAMUT
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Bahamut (Esper)
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
184 Ankheg                       World map in desert near Phoenix Tower in
                                 world 3
185 Ammonite                     World map in desert near Phoenix Tower in
                                 world 3
186 Landcrawler                  World map in desert near Phoenix Tower in
                                 world 3
298 Bahamut                      Boss on North Mountain in world 3

This part of the walkthrough is optional and fairly tough too.  You can skip it
and come back later if you want to, but you should be able to handle it now.
Go back to Mirage and get the Black Chocobo, then fly it to the desert in the
northeast.  Land in the forest and walk to the North Mountain.  The enemies in
the desert are fairly tough.  Although they're not too tough.  The toughest of
them is the Land Crawl.  It sometimes takes a particularly long time to run
away from the Land Crawl, so if you want to run away from it you should use the
Thief's !Escape ability or the Ninja's !Smoke ability.

Go to the top of the mountain and you'll fight Bahamut.  When you beat him
you'll gain the ability to call him as an Esper.  He attacks with some pretty
tough spells, so it can be helpful to use the Blue Magic spell MghtyGrd.  Some
of his spells can be reflected with the Esper Crbnkl, or if you don't have
that, you could use the White Magic spell Wall.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                 WALKTHROUGH PART 43 - PHOENIX TOWER
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Roulette (Blue), Phenix (Esper)
Treasures: 5000 gil, PhenixDwn, 10000 gil, PhenixDwn, 15000 gil, PhenixDwn,
20000 gil, PhenixDwn, 25000 gil, Aviskill
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
187 Lemure                       Phoenix Tower
188 Parthenope                   Phoenix Tower
189 Cherie                       Phoenix Tower
xxx Bandercoeuri (Phoenix Tower) Guards stairwells in Phoenix Tower
xxx Liquid Flame (Phoenix Tower) Guards stairwells in Phoenix Tower
xxx Kuza Beast (Phoenix Tower)   Guards stairwells in Phoenix Tower
xxx Soul Cannon (Phoenix Tower)  Guards stairwells in Phoenix Tower
190 Magic Pot                    Inside a pot in the Phoenix Tower

This part of the walkthrough is optional and fairly tough too.  You can skip it
and come back later if you want to, but you should be able to handle it now.
Go to the Phoenix Tower in the southwest corner of the desert in the northeast
(the same desert with Bahamut).  Make your way up the tower.  The stairs in
some rooms will be hidden, but if you search the front of the pillar in the
middle of the room the stairs will be revealed.  In each room there are two
places you could search to reveal the stairs (to the left of center or to the
right of center).  Searching one of them will make you fight an enemy before
the stairs are revealed; searching the other will reveal the stairs without a
fight.  I've read that the Playstation version of Final Fantasy 5 randomly
picks which place will have an enemy and which won't, and it's different every
time.  But for the people who are playing the Super Nintendo version, here is a
list of which place is free of enemies on each floor:

1F:  Left
3F:  Left
4F:  Right
7F:  Left
8F:  Left
9F:  Right
12F:  Left
13F:  Left
14F:  Right
17F:  Left
18F:  Left
19F:  Right
22F:  Right
23F:  Left
24F:  Right
26F:  Left
27F:  Left
28F:  Right

You can't run away from the enemies you find in the Phoenix Tower.  You can
learn the Blue Magic spell Roulette from the enemy Bella Donna in the Phoenix
Tower.

If you search the pots on some floors you'll find treasures.  When you search
some pots you'll encounter Magic Pots.  They're very difficult to beat by
attacking them.  You can run away if you want, but they ask you to give them an
Elixir, and if you do, then they will be the ones to leave the fight, and when
they do, you'll get 100 ABP.  You might have to give them more than one Elixir
to get them to leave.  If you give them one Elixir and they don't leave, you
will not be able to cast the Dimen Magic spell Reset to start the battle over
from the beginning in the hopes that the Magic Pot will leave after only one
Elixir.  You can't cast magic during the fights with Magic Pots.  But you can
use the Wonder Rod as an item in battle when you have it equipped (press up
from the item list during a battle to access the weapons you have equipped),
and that will cast Reset.  The Wonder Rod is found in the Fork Tower, which is
a later part of the walkthrough.  So people who are really concerned about
saving Elixirs can wait until after the Fork Tower to do this part.

Although if you want, you could try to actually beat the Magic Pots in a fight.
They're another one of Final Fantasy 5's super enemies.  They have very high
defense and very high HP and they periodically refill themselves to full HP, so
you have to do a lot of damage to them very quickly, before they have a chance
to refill their HP.  See the Super Enemies Strategies section of this guide for
tips on how to beat them.

Make your way to the top of the tower.  There'll be a scene during which you
can either answer Yes or No to a question.  The answer doesn't matter.  Get the
Esper Phenix, then leave.  Walk back to the Black Chocobo and fly back to the
airship.

157 Executor                     Solitary Island Temple
158 Oiseaurare                   Solitary Island Temple
161 Tot Aevis                    Solitary Island Temple
159 Shadow Dancer                Solitary Island Temple
160 Numb Blade                   Solitary Island Temple
xxx Covert                       Sometimes inside one of the treasure chests in
                                 the Solitary Island Temple
xxx Pantera                      Sometimes inside one of the treasure chests in
                                 the Solitary Island Temple
289 Wendigo                      Boss of Solitary Island Temple

Now it's finally time to get the second tablet.  Go to the temple on the big
bridge and make your way through it (it's just east of Castle Bal).  There are
some treasure chests in hidden passages in the Solitary Island Temple.  Giving
one of your characters the Thief's Passages ability (or giving them the job of
Thief, which automatically has the Passages ability) will help you find them.

Walk up to the air duct when you see it, and you'll get sucked into another
room.  It's a dead end, but it has two switches.  Going back to the air duct
will take you to one of four rooms depending on whether each switch is up or
down.  Make sure to go to the rooms with treasure chests with 9000 gil and an
Elixir before continuing through the temple.  Also, search the walls around the
bottom of the room with the switches and you'll find a HiPotion and a Protect
Drink.

In the last room with the air duct there is a treasure chest with a RisinSun in
it.  That treasure chest has a monster in it.  It can be either the monster
Invisible or the monster Pantera.  They're both pretty interesting monsters,
and they can both only be found in this treasure chest.  If you want to see
both of them, you can open the treasure chest and get into a fight with one,
check it out, then before the fight ends you can run away and open the treasure
chest again in the hopes of getting into a fight with the other one.  The
monster Pantera uses the Image command, which creates additional fake copies of
him, and you can only damage the real one.  When you kill the first copy of the
monster Invisible, he'll use a different type of Image command, which creates
two more Invisibles, but they're in the same place.  You can tell by the
shadow.  It's not as cool looking as Pantera's Image, but it's still kind of
neat.

There are some pitfalls in the Solitary Island Temple, so it can be helpful to
give someone in your party the Geomancer's Pitfalls ability (or give them the
job of Geomancer, which automatically has the Pitfalls ability) to help you
avoid dropping down to the lower level.

If you didn't learn it earlier, you can learn the Blue Magic spell Condemn here
from the enemy Cursed One.  You have to control them in order to get them to
cast it, and then you have to give them an Ether in order for them to have
enough MP to cast it.

At the end of the temple you'll fight the boss Stalker when you get the second
tablet.  You can learn the last Blue Magic spell, MindBlst, from Stalker.  If
you miss it, you'll have another chance to learn MindBlst later, but not until
the game is almost over.

Stalker has three decoys that all look like him.  When you hit a decoy it won't
do any damage.  So it'll take awhile to beat him, since you'll waste a lot of
time hitting the wrong one.  When you do hit the right one, it'll randomly
switch to a different one.  And attacks that target multiple enemies will cause
them to counterattack.  Leave the temple once you beat him.  Fly to the Sealed
Castle Kuzar and pick out three more of the legendary sealed weapons.

                   WALKTHROUGH PART 45 - FORK TOWER
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Holy (White), Flare (Black)
Treasures: Ether, Wonder Rod, HiPotion, Defender
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
162 Tiny Mage                    Fork Tower
163 Chrono Controller            Fork Tower
164 Flaremancer                  Fork Tower
165 Dueling Knight               Fork Tower
166 Iron Muscles                 Fork Tower
167 Berserker                    Fork Tower
292 Omniscient                   Boss of Fork Tower
291 Minotaur                     Boss of Fork Tower

When you get the stone tablet in the Solitary Island Temple, the entrance to
the Fork Tower will be opened.  So head there next.  It's just west of
Crescent.  In Crescent, Mid is concerned that Cid is trapped underneath it.
You'll have to divide your party into two groups for the Fork Tower.  I found
the tower of magic on the left to be tougher than the tower of power on the
right, so I recommend that you send your two best magic users left, and send
whoever is leftover right.  (That's why, when you first got your jobs, I
recommended that you make Galuf and Faris magic users, since Cara and Faris are
naturally stronger at magic than Butz, and they should be more experienced than
Lenna, since she missed out on the experience that the others gained in the
Pyramid.)  Summon Magic works well here, so pick people who have that.  Give
your characters in the left tower weapons that increase their magic power, even
if those weapons have a weak attack power.

Make your way up the tower.  You actually can use physical attacks in the tower
of magic and you can use magic attacks in the tower of power, but doing so can
result in overwhelming counterattacks.  Although if your attack kills the
enemy, it won't be able to counterattack you.  Note that you can use healing
magic on yourself in the tower of power without consequences.  It sometimes
takes a particularly long time to run away from the enemies in the Fork Tower,
so if you want to run away from them you should use the Thief's !Escape ability
or the Ninja's !Smoke ability.

You can steal a Thunder Whip from the enemy Flare that can be found here in the
left tower.  It's not really a very good weapon, but I note it because it's
rare.

At the top you'll fight Minotauros, the boss of the tower of power first.  If
you defeated Sekmet in the Pyramid normally, he said that his brother at the
tower will avenge him.  Minotauros is presumably Sekmet's brother.  Prove
Sekmet wrong.

After you beat Minotauros the other group will have to fight Omniscient.  You
can reflect his spells with the White Magic spell Wall or the Esper Crbnkl.
You may have to put up your Walls multiple times if they wear off.  The Esper
Syldra will do the most damage to him.  You can steal the rare accessory
CornaJar from Omniscient.

After you beat Omniscient you'll get the spells Holy and Flare and the tower
will disappear, revealing the area where you first found the airship.  Go there
and you'll find Cid, who will work on your airship so it can be a submarine
too.  You can do the rest of the game out of order, if you want.

Note that underwater, just south of Karnak (it's not marked on the world map),
is a shrine with a man who will tell you some of the statistics of your party
(including what percentage of the hidden treasures you've found so far).  Note
that all of the hidden treasures in the game are listed in this walkthrough.
Also note that you can get credit for getting 100% of the treasures even if you
let Lone Wolf out of jail in Worus (even though he takes some of the treasures
himself).

Also note that underwater, just east of Mirage and a little south, is a smiley
face.  It doesn't do anything.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
             WALKTHROUGH PART 46 - WORUS TOWER REVISITED
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Treasures:  None
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
297 Famed Mimic Gogo             Boss of Sunken Worus Tower

Go underwater, look at your map, and go to the mark in the northeast (it's
southwest of Carwen).  It's the Worus Tower that sunk back at the beginning of
the game.  You'll only have a limited time in it, so you can use the Thief's
Dash ability to move faster.  Note that Thieves use the Dash ability
automatically, so if you have a Thief in your party, they don't have to equip
the Dash ability.  You can also save time by running away from enemies instead
of fighting them, if you want to.

Make your way through the tower.  There's a treasure chest half way through
that will reset the timer.  If you get that treasure chest then leave the tower
and come back, you'll still be able to get it again and reset the timer again.
If you're playing the Super Nintendo version of Final Fantasy 5 on your
computer (with a ROM), then you can use a Hex Editor to give yourself extra
time.  See the Hacking section for more information.

At the end of the tower you'll find the crystal piece that you had to leave
behind at the beginning of the game.  You'll have to fight Gogo for it.  Gogo's
a Mimic.  He says he'll do what you do, and advises you to do what he does.  If
you attack him physically, he'll respond with an overwhelming physical attack.
And if you attack him with magic, he'll respond with an overwhelming magic
attack.  And after you've done a fair amount of damage to him, he'll attack
over and over again, overwhelmingly, even if you stop attacking.  But if you
never attack him, then he won't attack you.  Mimic that by not attacking him
some more, and after a few minutes of sitting there staring at each other,
he'll congratulate you and give you the crystal piece.  Note that you can steal
the rare helmet Goldpin from Gogo.

Although if you're up for a real challenge, you could try to actually beat him
in a fight.  He's another one of Final Fantasy 5's super enemies.  He's
probably the toughest of all of them.  See the Super Enemies Strategies section
of this guide for tips on how to beat him.  If you do want to fight him, you
might need to skip this part of the walkthrough and come back to it at the end
of the game when you've built up your level and gained new abilities and gotten
better equipment.

Once you have the Mimic job, leave the tower and consider switching some of
your characters to Mimic.  Gaining ABP in the Mimic job could hypothetically be
useful, but learning its ability for use with other jobs is a low priority.  If
you want to use the !Mimic ability, you might as well just be a Mimic, and you
don't have to gain ABP for the Mimic to use its own !Mimic ability.  So there's
not a lot of need to spend time gaining ABP for this job.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                  WALKTHROUGH PART 47 - GREAT TRENCH
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Meteo (Dimen)
Treasures: Water Scroll, Flame Ring, DragnFang, Ether, PhenixDwn, Kaiser
Knuckles, 3 of the legendary sealed weapons
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
168 Unknown (Spore, 2nd form)    Great Trench
169 Unknown (Blob)               Great Trench
170 Unknown (Worm)               Great Trench
171 Unknown (Spore, 1st form)    Great Trench
172 Unknown (Skeleton)           Great Trench
293 Triton                       Boss of Great Trench
294 Nereid                       Boss of Great Trench
295 Phobos                       Boss of Great Trench

Go underwater, look at your map, and go to the mark in the southeast (it's
north and a little east of Crescent).  Make your way through the Great Trench.
Some of the switches in it will open doors or create bridges, and some of them
will drop you to the level below.  There are some places there where you have
to walk through magma.  That will damage you unless your characters are
Floating (which you can do with the Dimen Magic spell Float) or if you give one
of your characters the Geomancer's DmgFloor ability (or give them the job of
Geomancer, which automatically has the DmgFloor ability).

Eventually you'll come to the Dwarf Kingdom.  One of the dwarves says that if
you return the MagicLamp to its original place, its power will revive.  That
original place is the lower right hand corner of the room right after the Dwarf
Kingdom (the room with the white water in it).  When you walk into that spot,
there will be a bright blue flash of light.

In the next room, a door will open when you open a treasure chest next to it.
Although at first, you won't be able to get through the door because lava will
block your path.  Press all the switches in the room, then you'll be able to
get through.  Get the third tablet at the end and you'll fight some bosses.  As
long as one of them is still alive, the others will come back to life shortly
after you kill them.  So try to kill them all at once using attacks that hit
all enemies for about the same amount of damage.  Leave after you beat them.
Fly to the Sealed Castle Kuzar and pick out three more of the legendary sealed
weapons.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
                  WALKTHROUGH PART 48 - ISTORY FALLS
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Leviathan (Esper)
Treasures: Ether, TurtleShell, Air Lance, Giant Drink, RuneEdge, Guard Ring,
PhenixDwn, Wall Ring, Artemis Bow, 12000 gil, Enhancer, Aegis Shield, Pinwheel,
Giant Axe, 3 of the legendary sealed weapons
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
178 Mercury Bat                  Istory Falls
179 Coral                        Istory Falls
183 Tonberry                     Istory Falls
180 Aquagel                      Istory Falls
181 Steel Fist                   Sometimes inside one of the treasure chests in
                                 the Pyramid and randomly encountered in Istory
                                 Falls
182 Alchymia (Red Dragon)        Istory Falls
182 Alchymia (Ghidra)            Istory Falls
182 Alchymia (Bone Dragon)       Dummy enemy?
296 Leviathan                    Boss of Istory Falls

While underwater, look at your map, and go to the mark in the northwest (it's
south of Istory Falls).  Go through the cave there and you'll end up on the
surface, just east of the giant waterfall near where Istory used to be.  Walk
into the waterfall and make your way through the area you find there.  You can
get to lower levels by sliding down waterfalls.  There's nothing you can get
here by walking up into the waterfalls, so don't bother trying.  Istory Falls
has some areas with hidden passages that even the Thief's Passages ability
won't let you see.  But you can see them when you get really close to them.
There's a RuneEdge hidden in one of them in the lower right hand corner of
floor B2.

On the left side of floor B2 there's a treasure chest with a Guard Ring on the
other side of a waterfall.  You have to press a switch to stop the waterfall,
then get the treasure.
You'll have to use the Thief's Dash ability (press the cancel button while
walking to move faster) to be able to get the treasure before the waterfall
starts again.  Note that Thieves use the Dash ability automatically, so if you
have a Thief in your party, they don't have to equip the Dash ability.  You
won't be able to walk up that waterfall no matter how fast you move, even
though it kind of looks like you can.

There are some pitfalls in Istory Falls, so it can be helpful to give someone
in your party the Geomancer's Pitfalls ability (or give them the job of
Geomancer, which automatically has the Pitfalls ability) to help you avoid
dropping down to the lower level.

Before you get the treasure chests on floor B5, press the switches near them.
That'll spring the traps.  After you get all the treasures, continue on by
jumping down the hole near the Giant Axe.  Grab the tablet.  Leave by walking
into the waterfall at the bottom of the room.  You can get the Esper Leviathan
on your way out if you want, but you'll have to fight him first.  It's
optional.  Then fly to the Sealed Castle Kuzar and pick out the last three
legendary sealed weapons.

If you're playing the Gameboy Advance version of the game, then after you get
the last of the legendary sealed weapons, someone will give you a message that
there was an earthquake to the south.  Fly your airship south, and just west of
Phantom Village you'll see an area where the ocean is bubbling.  Go underwater
in your submarine, and you'll find a cave there.  In the cave you'll get three
more jobs:  Oracle, Cannoneer, and Gladiator.  You'll meet a man there who says
he'll sell you ingredients for the Cannoneer's ability.  You can find him in
the inn in Crescent.  There are two doors and a switch in the room where you
get the new jobs, but you can't do anything with them yet.  But don't worry,
you'll be able to come back for them later in the game.  Those jobs and the
cave aren't available in the SNES or Playstation versions of the game.  I don't
yet have recommendations about whether or not you should use the Oracle,
Cannoneer, Gladiator, or Necromancer jobs.  And my recommendations about the
other jobs were made without taking into account the alternatives presented by
the Oracle, Cannoneer, Gladiator, or Necromancer jobs.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
           WALKTHROUGH PART 49 - CLEFT OF DIMENSION, PART 1
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Treasures (listed separately by subsection):
Desert: None
Ruins: Ether, Cabin, DarkMatter, Elixir x2, Drain Sword
Town: None
Forest: DragnFang, Ribbon, Enhancer, Lillith Rod
Cave: Angel Ring, Coral Ring
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
204 Grenade                      Ruins of the Cleft of Dimension
205 Baldanders                   Ruins of the Cleft of Dimension
206 Death Dealer                 Ruins of the Cleft of Dimension
207 Level Checker                Ruins of the Cleft of Dimension and Sunken
                                 Worus Tower
208 White Flame                  Forest of the Cleft of Dimension
209 Moss Fungus                  Forest of the Cleft of Dimension
210 Farfarello                   Forest of the Cleft of Dimension
300 Calofisteri                  Boss of Forest of the Cleft of Dimension
211 Orukat                       Cave of the Cleft of Dimension
212 Great Dragon                 Cave of the Cleft of Dimension
213 Achelon                      Cave of the Cleft of Dimension
311 Omega                        Cave of the Cleft of Dimension

You have now done everything there is to do before going to the Cleft of
Dimension.  So get ready to fly the airship into the hole where Tycoon Castle
used to be.  Before you go into the Cleft of Dimension, I recommend that you
buy a bunch of Cabins.  There are no inns inside the Cleft of Dimension where
you can recover your HP, but toward the end there are a few save points where
you can rest using a Cabin.

Go into the Cleft of Dimension and make your way through the desert and ruins.
You can heal at the pot in Mirage.  Leave the town and make your way through
the forest.  You can't cast the Dimen Magic spell Exit in the forest (or in the
Void that you'll find later in the Cleft of Dimension), so if you want to leave
the Cleft of Dimension, go to another part of it and cast Exit there.  At the
end of the forest there will be a tree with a hole in it.  Search the hole to
create an opening to another part of the Cleft of Dimension.  You'll have to
fight a boss before continuing.  In the cave there is one waterfall that's
hiding an entrance to another room.  Walk into the waterfalls to find it.
There's an Angel Ring in the hidden room.

On the lower section of the cave there is a machine visibly walking around.
He's Omega, another one of Final Fantasy 5's super enemies.  He's optional, so
you don't have to fight him if you don't want to.  And you don't get anything
valuable for beating him, but you can try it if you want.  See the Super
Enemies Strategies section of this guide for tips on how to beat him.  You
should save before you fight him.  There's a save spot in the cave, but you
might miss it if you slid down the waterfall from the upper level to the lower
level, rather than taking the stairs in the room next to the waterfall.

You might want to skip Omega then come back to him at the end of the game when
you've built up your level and gained new abilities and gotten better
equipment.  There are enemies towards the end of the game that give you a huge
amount of experience and ABP, so you can build up your levels quickly by
fighting against them.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
           WALKTHROUGH PART 50 - CLEFT OF DIMENSION, PART 2
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spells:  Ramuh (Esper, if you didn't get it earlier)
Treasures (listed separately by subsection):
Library: None
Towers: None
Castle: Thor Hammer, Running Shoes, Red Shoes, Rainbow Suit, ManEater
New monsters in this area (GBA name):
299 Apanda                       Boss of Library of the Cleft of Dimension
214 Ninja                        Towers of the Cleft of Dimension
215 Dragon Aevis                 Towers of the Cleft of Dimension
220 Iron Giant                   Castle of the Cleft of Dimension
216 Sword Dancer                 Castle of the Cleft of Dimension
217 Death Claw                   Castle of the Cleft of Dimension
218 Fury                         Castle of the Cleft of Dimension
219 Yojimbo                      Castle of the Cleft of Dimension
302 Alte Roite                   Castle of the Cleft of Dimension
303 Jura Aevis                   Castle of the Cleft of Dimension
301 Azulmagia                    Boss in Castle of the Cleft of Dimension
304 Catastrophe                  Boss in Castle of the Cleft of Dimension
305 Halicarnassus                Boss in Castle of the Cleft of Dimension
306 Twintania                    Boss in Castle of the Cleft of Dimension

Continue past Omega and you'll enter a library.  You can read the two books
highlighted at the back of the room.  When you try to read the book on the
table you'll be attacked by a boss named Apanda.  He's the master of Byblos,
whom you fought in the Ancient Library.  Apanda is weak against fire (not
surprising for something you found in a book).  And if you use the Esper Ifrit
(the protector of libraries) on him, then he'll waste a turn cowering in fear.
You can steal the throwing weapon Soot from Apanda, and you can win another one
from him.  It's not really a very good weapon, but I note it because it's rare.

After you beat Apanda, turn around and leave the room again.  There's a
dimensional switch in the book.  When the book is closed, the door in the
library will take you back to the cave.  When the book is open, the door in the
library will take you to a new section with towers.  There are some pretty
obvious invisible bridges in the towers section (and there are a few places
that look like they might have an invisible bridge, but they don't).  Use the
Thief's Passages ability to see them if you really want to.  Make your way
through the towers section and you'll come to a castle.  There are three bosses
in the castle section, and that's not counting the optional bosses.  You may
come to a door that you can't open for now, but don't worry about it.

Make your way to the jail area.  First I suggest you fight Apocalypse, the guy
in the lower left hand corner.  He's optional, but you'll have access to a save
spot after you beat him.  Apocalypse is a Blue Mage, with access to many of the
same Blue Magic spells that you can learn.  I've seen it said that if you miss
getting one of the Blue Magic spells, you could try learning it from him.
That's possible for many of them, I suppose, but it seems a bit impractical to
me, and there are other ways of learning the Blue Magic spells (see the Blue
Magic sections).  Plus, there are some Blue Magic spells that he doesn't know.
That includes some that he can never know, plus some that you can actually
teach him (Aero 3, AquaRake, Blowfish, Exploder, Hammer, L.3 Flare, and
Vampire).  Teaching him Exploder is an interesting way to beat him (since then
he'll use it, which kills him).  You can steal a Giant Glove from Apocalypse.
It's not really a very good accessory, but I note it because it's rare.

Save after you beat Apocalypse, then continue through the castle.  The treasure
chest in the cell towards the upper right has Red Shoes, and the treasure chest
in the cell in the bottom right has a Rainbow Suit.  You don't have to get
them, and if you do, you might have to fight some of the green guys running
around in the cells (although it's possible to avoid them and still get the
treasures, if you want to).  When you're ready to proceed, talk to the gray
thing in the upper right hand cell and you'll fight him, Catastroph, the first
mandatory boss of the castle.  Catastroph uses the Earth Shaker spell, which
can do a fair amount of damage.  But if you keep your characters Floating, then
he won't cast Earth Shaker.  Note that you can cast the Dimen Magic spell Float
on yourself before the battle even starts.

Continue through the castle.  Outside, in the next section, you have another
chance to encounter Ramuh if you missed him before.  When you beat him you'll
get the item Ramuh, and when you use that item, you'll be able to call Ramuh as
a spell.  After you beat him once, you won't encounter him again.  Make sure to
get the ManEater through the secret passage in the section on the left.  Inside
the castle you can go back to the door you couldn't open earlier, from the
other side this time, where there's a switch that'll open the door.  There
isn't really any point in that, though.  When you try to continue to the next
room, you'll be pulled onto the throne.  Try to leave again, and you'll fight
Halicarnaso, the next mandatory boss.  He'll start out by trying to turn you
all into frogs.  Although if you cast toad on your party members yourself
before the start of the fight, then his attack will backfire, and turn you back
into humans (although you don't need to do this, and shouldn't, with characters
who are immune to being turned into frogs during battle).  Halicarnaso will
have a strong counterattack to Summon Magic, so don't use any of it against him.

Once you beat him, continue through the castle, and on the roof you'll fight
Twin Tania, the last mandatory boss of this section.  Twin Tania sometimes
casts Mega Flare as a counterattack when you use magic to attack him.  And he
sometimes casts Tidal Wave as a counterattack when you attack him physically.
Mega Flare can be reflected with the White Magic spell Wall or the Esper
Crbnkl.  The damage from Tidal Wave can be absorbed by Coral Rings.  You can
leave the Cleft of Dimension and buy Coral Rings in Mirage, or you can steal
them from Bella Donna in the Phoenix Tower.

In the library of the Cleft of Dimension there was a book that said that Giga
Flare leaves a moment of vulnerability during preparation.  Twin Tania is the
one who uses Giga Flare.  So when it says he's charging up for Giga Flare, you
can attack him without him counterattacking, and you can use a lot of spells
that wouldn't ordinarily work on bosses (like the instant death attack of the
Esper Odin).  You can steal a Giant Axe from Twin Tania when it's charging up
for Giga Flare.  It's the best axe in the game, although there are other
weapons that are better.  If you beat Twin Tania when it is not charging up for
Giga Flare, then there's a chance that you'll win the Tinker Bell.  It's the
best bell in the game, although there are other weapons that are a lot better.

Note that you can steal the Tempest Katana from an enemy named Bodyguard that
can be found here on the roof of the castle.  It's a very powerful weapon.

313 Exdeath (Final)              Boss of Void at the end of the Cleft of
                                 Dimension
314 Neo Exdeath                  Boss of Void at the end of the Cleft of
                                 Dimension

After you beat Twin Tania, go up the bridge and make your way through the Void.
Rather than take stairs in the void, you'll move from area to area via warp
points like the one on which you start.  The enemies here are very, very tough.
Good luck.  But they give a lot of ABP when you beat them, so this can be the
best place to gain new abilities.  A typical fight in the Void can give you 30
ABP, and in the second and fourth areas you'll have a chance of randomly
encountering enemies called Movers, and if you beat them you'll get 199 ABP.
Although Movers sometimes end the fight early, so in order to get the ABP
you'll have to beat them quickly before they can do that.  The enemies here
don't give you experience points, so while this can be a good place to gain new
abilities, you should go back to the castle section to gain experience.  You
can get a lot of experience from Iron Giants, who can be found easily in the
room right before the castle's roof.

If you fought Gilgamesh at the top of Exdeath's Castle, then he was sent to the
Cleft of Dimension at the end of the fight.  You'll fight him again here.  You
can use the Thief's !Steal or !Capture commands to get the Genji Shield from
him.  It's a great shield.  Although I think he won't be there in the Void for
you to fight him if you didn't fight him towards the end of Exdeath's Castle.

Make your way through the void.  If you didn't learn the Blue Magic spell
MindBlst earlier, then you can learn it here from a Mind Mage.

Do not open the treasure chests on the third area of the Void right away.
First, go ahead to the fourth area and search the green glowing spot.  You'll
get into a fight with Necrofobia.  It's an optional fight, but you'll have
access to a save spot after you beat him.  You'll have to destroy his four
barriers before you can hurt him.  If you didn't already get as many Thief
Gloves as you wanted from Sekmet in the Pyramid, then you can steal another one
from Necrofobia.  If certain conditions are met, then Gilgamesh will show up
and help you fight Necrofobia once you destroy Necrofobia's barriers and do a
bit of damage to him (you have to get Necrofobia below 9,999 HP).  I'm not sure
what all the conditions are, though.  I suspect that Gilgamesh won't show up
here if you didn't fight him at the top of Exdeath's Castle, but sometimes he
doesn't show up even if you did fight him at the top of Exdeath's Castle (even
after you get Necrofobia below 9,999 HP).  You can use the Thief's !Steal or
!Capture commands to get the Genji Armor from Gilgamesh if he does show up.
It's great armor.  Save your game when the fight is over, then go back to the
previous area and get the treasure chests, if you want.

In one of them you'll find the enemy Shinryuu.  He's another one of Final
Fantasy 5's super enemies.  He's optional, so you don't have to fight him if
you don't want to.  See the Super Enemies Strategies section of this guide for
tips on how to beat him.  When you beat Shinryuu you'll get the sword Ragnarok.
You can steal a Dragon Whip from Shinryuu.  It's not really a very good weapon,
but I note it because it's rare.  You can also sometimes win Dragon Whips from
the enemy Stingray in the northern part of the sea that is southwest of Carwen
in world 3.  But trying to do that can sometimes take lots of tries before it
succeeds, so some people prefer to get the Dragon Whip from Shinryuu.

At this point, if you want, you can go back to the shrine that's underwater
south of Karnak.  If you got all of the treasures I listed in this walkthrough,
he should tell you that you've found 100% of the treasures in the game.

When you're ready, make your way to the end of the Void and you'll fight
Exdeath.  Exdeath has two forms, and after you beat his first form, you'll have
to fight his second form.  His second form appears to have four parts, and
you'll have to destroy all four of them to win the fight.  In addition to the
regular four parts, there are also two extra parts that are sort of hidden.
The two extra parts can't be hurt, and you don't need to destroy them in order
to win the fight.  You won't be able to target the two extra parts
specifically, but if you use an attack that targets an enemy at random (like
the Hunter's !X-Fight ability) it will sometimes be wasted on those two parts.
It can be helpful to switch to the Normal or Mimic Jobs for this fight, since
they can use multiple abilities.

After you beat both of Exdeath's forms there'll be an ending scene then the
credits will roll.  After the credits, if you're playing the Gameboy Advance
version of the game you'll have the option of saving your game.  The credits
take a long time, so be patient.  If you save your game then reload it, you'll
have access to the Bonus Dungeon, as descriped in the next part of the
walkthrough.  Although if you're playing the SNES or Playstation versions of
the game, there is no bonus dungeon, and this is the end of the game.

Note that the ending scene after you beat Exdeath will be a little different
depending on who is still alive at the end of the fight.  Here's what the
possibilities are (this'll be a spoiler if you haven't seen it yet, obviously):

If all four of your characters are alive, then the ending will show them all
leaving the void, then a year later one of them will write Cid and Mid a letter
saying what all four of them have been doing since the fight, then there will
be flashbacks for all four characters plus Galuf, then they'll all reunite at
the Elder Tree.

If at least one character is dead at the end of the fight, then the ending will
show the characters who are still alive leaving the void, but the ones who are
dead will be left behind.  The letter to Cid and Mid will say what the
characters who lived have been doing since the fight, but obviously it won't be
able to say what the characters who died have been doing.  There will be
flashbacks for the characters who died only (and there won't be a flashback for
Galuf).  Then the characters who lived will reunite at the Elder Tree, and
there the characters who died will be brought back to life.

Unlike the rest of the walkthrough, the remaining sections will be in the
Gameboy Advance translation, since they only apply to the Gameboy Advance
version of the game.

Note that there is a really high rate of random enemy encounters in the bonus
dungeon.  It will be helpful to use the Oracle's Read Ahead ability, which
reduces the rate of random enemy encounters.

Also note that there are lots of places in the bonus dungeon where the path
branches off and you can go in multiple different directions.  With only a few
exceptions that I'll mention, the branches usually all go to essentially the
same place.  But you might get more treasures if you go along one path than
another, or in order to get all the treasures, you might have to go one way,
then backtrack and go the other way too.

Anyway, after you gained access to the bonus dungeon in the previous part of
the walkthrough, go back to the cave where you got the Oracle, Cannoneer, and
Gladiator jobs in part 48 of the walkthrough.  If you flip the switch in the
middle of the room, then the room will move to another area.  Then you'll be
able to go through the door on the left side of the room, which leads to the
Sealed Temple.

Below I have listed which monsters can be encountered and which treasures can
be found in each floor of the bonus dungeon.  I refer to the floors by their
official name.  You can see the official name of the floor you're on if you
open the game's menu.  But here is a short guide to the bonus dungeon:

First you should go through the right door of the Sealed Temple.  Take one of
the warps in the next room, and proceed to the room after that.  You should be
in the room called Titans' Grotto - B2.  Use the Beastmaster's !Catch ability
to catch one of the monsters here named Behemoth.  Then proceed to the next
room, and take the warp there.  That will take you to the area that you
could've accessed through the left door of the Sealed Temple.

Proceed left and make your way through this area of the bonus dungeon.  You'll
have to fight a Gil Turtle on the way.  At the end of this path you'll find a
little kid.  He'll ask you to catch a Behemoth.  Since you already did that,
he'll give you access to a new area of the bonus dungeon, through the middle
door in the Sealed Temple.  So now backtrack and go through the middle door of
the Sealed Temple.  On your way back you'll see a monster in a jail cell, but
you can't do anything with it yet.

Through the middle door of the Sealed Temple you'll find a stone statue of a
snake blocking your way.  Search it.  You can't get around it right now, so go
back and go through the right door of the Sealed Temple again.  You can proceed
through this area by taking one of the warps again, or by taking the door in
the first room.  Either way, proceed through three rooms until you get to the
room called Ruined Shrine - Hall of Watchmen.  Talk to the little kid you find
there, and he'll give you medicine that will soften petrification curses.  Take
it and go back to the stone statue of the snake through the middle door of the
Sealed Temple.  It only lasts for 5 minutes, so be fast.  Take the warp in the
lower right hand corner of the room with the little kid, then go up through the
door, and make your way through the next room, and you'll be back in the Sealed
Temple.

After you soften the snake, you'll have to fight it, and after that you can
proceed through the Bonus Dungeon.  Along the way, in the room called Warp Zone
there is a warp that will take you back to the beginning of the bonus dungeon.
When you get to the room called Abyssal Falls - B2 the path will split in
several directions.  To the south is a room where you can go to get some
treasures.  There is another door in the room called Abyssal Falls - B2, but
you can't get through it right now.  So instead go to the left.  You'll have to
press the switch to stop the waterfall, then run past it.  You'll have to be
fast.  In the next room, called the Abyssal Falls - Hall of Tranquility, you
should talk to the little kid and he'll unlock the jail cell you saw along the
path through the left door at the beginning of the Sealed Temple.  You can go
back and fight that monster now if you want, but there are a few other optional
things I want to point out first.

North of the main room of Abyssal Falls - Hall of Tranquility is a room with a
save spot.  If you go left from the Abyssal Falls - Hall of Tranquility you'll
find a room crawling with Omegas.  On the left side of that room is a door that
is currently locked.  But if you go north to the next room, you'll find a
switch that unlocks that door.  You'll find another switch that unlocks the
door in Abyssal Falls - B2.  The third switch just unleashes a flow of sand
that knocks you back to the room below with the Omegas.  The hole in that room
drops you to River of Souls - B2, which is back at the beginning of the bonus
dungeon, through the door to the left of the Sealed Temple.  You can use that
hole when you want to go back and fight the monster in the jail cell.

But first, proceed through the newly unlocked door in the left side of the room
with the Omegas.  Then proceed to the room after that (you'll have to fall
through a hole in the floor, rather than use the stairs).  In the next room
you'll find the optional super enemy Omega Mk.II.  It's like Omega, but
tougher.  You win the Force Shield when you beat it.

After you're done with Omega Mk.II, go back to the room called Abyssal Falls -
B2.  Go through the door there, now that it's unlocked.  If you take the
northern exit from that room, you'll find another room with a treasure chest
that contains the enemy Neo Shinryu.  It's like Shinryu, but tougher.  Most
attacks won't damage Neo Shinryu at all.  They don't even do 0 damage.  It's
like they don't hit at all.  But you can damage him if you use the Dragoon's
!Jump ability.  You can do the most damage if you jump with the Dragon Lance,
which you can steal from the enemy Crystal Dragon, which can be found either
right here in the area of the Bonus Dungeon with Neo Shinryu or in the Void at
the end of the Interdimensional Rift.  You win the Ultima Weapon when you beat
Neo Shinryu.

After you're done with Omega Mk.II and Neo Shinryu (or if you don't want to
fight them), go all the way back to the jail cell at the beginning of the
Sealed Temple.  It's through the Sealed Temple's left door.  When you open it,
you'll fight the boss Archeodemon.  Whenever you attack Archeodemon, he
responds by casting the spell Death on himself.  Archeodemon is an undead
monster, so the spell Death completely restores his HP.  But you can prevent
him from healing himself by using the White Magic spell Reflect on him,
although that will reflect his Death spell onto you.

After you beat Archeodemon, go all the way back to the room with the little kid
who gave you the key to Archeodemon's jail cell.  There's a warp point at the
bottom of the room which will be unblocked after you beat Archeodemon.  Go
through the warp point and continue through the short path to the end of the
bonus dungeon.  You'll get into one fight with the bosses Guardian, Wave
Cannon, and Launchers.  Then at the end you'll fight the final boss, Enuo.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
              WALKTHROUGH PART 53 - CLOISTER OF THE DEAD
----------------------------------------------------------------------
New monsters in this area (GBA name):  None

After you beat Enuo, you'll get the final job, Necromancer.  Note that
Neromancers have the undead status.  As a result of that, most healing spells
and items hurt you during a fight.  Although healing spells and items work
normally when you're not in a fight.  Necromancers can still be healed by the
Blue Magic spell White Wind or the Protect Ring.  And you can drain HP from
enemies using the Black Magic spell Drain, the Esper Sylph, the Chemist's mix
Succubus Kiss, the Blue Magic spell Vampire, the Dance Jitterbug, the Dragoon's
!Lance ability, or the Blood Sword, or by attacking an enemy after using the
Magic Sword spell Drain.  And if you equip something or use a Chemist mix that
lets you absorb damage from one element, then you can be healed using spells of
that element.  Since you're undead, you can be fully healed by the Black Magic
spell Death, the Chemist's mix Death Potion, or the Blue Magic spells Roulette
(which won't necessarily hit the character you want it to hit) and Level 5
Death (which can only be cast on enemies, but can be reflected back onto you if
the enemy has a Wall, although then it won't necessarily hit the character you
want it to hit, and it will only work on characters who are at a level that is
a multiple of 5).  The Death Sickle and Assassin's Dagger also sometimes cast
Death when you attack with them, and that will also fully heal a Necromancer,
although getting attacked with those weapons will still hurt on occasions when
they don't cast Death.  Unlike people equipped with the Bone Mail, Necromancers
can be revived during fights by spells like Raise, although spells like Raise
will hurt them if they're already alive.  And unlike people equipped with the
Bone Mail, Necromancers do not absorb Poison damage, so they can't be healed by
poison attacks.

Anyway, as soon as you get the Necromancer job, a monster will emerge from the
final area of the game, the Cloister of the Dead.  Someone will show up and use
that monster as an introduction to how Necromancers work.  You can gain
Necromancer spells by defeating certain monsters.  In order to gain the spell,
the character who delivers the final blow must be a Necromancer.  After you
defeat that monster as a Necromancer and gain the first spell, you can go into
the Cloister of the Dead.  But first you might want to get the rest of the Dark
Arts spells.  Here is a list of each Dark Arts spell, the monsters who can
teach it to you, and where those monsters can be found:

Drain Touch  Mindflayer (Cloister of the Dead)
Dark Haze    Lemure (Phoenix Tower)
Deep Freeze  Assassin (Bonus dungeon)
Evil Mist    Zombie Dragon (Drakenvale)
Meltdown     Liquid Flame (Guards stairwells in Phoenix Tower)
Hellwind     Objet d'Art (Castle Bal Basement)
Chaos Drive  Mini Satana (Bonus dungeon)
Curse        Ironclad (Bonus dungeon)
Dark Flare   Tonberry (Istory Falls)
Doomsday     Hades (Bonus dungeon)

When you're ready, the last thing you can do is go through the Cloister of the
Dead.  In the Cloister of the Dead you have to refight several of the game's
bosses.  And they're tougher this time around.  The Wing Raptor, the game's
first boss, was originally 250 HP.  But this time it's 12,000 HP.  The Cloister
of the Dead has several levels, and each one has 5 boss fights.  You fight all
5 fights on each level in a row, without a break to heal or switch jobs in
between fights.  Then you get a break after each level.  But if you leave it
before you're done, you'll have to start back at the first level when you start
it again.  When you're finished, you get the Medal of Smiting, and that's the
end of the game.

Here, for planning purposes, is a list of all the bosses in the Cloister of the
Dead:

Cloister level 1:
Wing Raptor
Galura
Siren
Magissa and Forza
Gil Turtle

Level 2:
Liquid Flame
Soul Cannon, Launcher (2)
Purobolos (6)
Minotaur
Triton, Nereid, Phobos

Level 3:
Byblos
Tyrannosaur
Dragon Pod, Dragon Flower (5)
Archeodemon
Apanda

Level 4:
Manticore
Adamantoise
Jackanapes
Calofisteri
Twintania

Level 5:
Omniscient
Wendigo
Sandworm
Atomos
Halicarnassus

Level 6:
The Sealed (4)
Melusine
Catastrophe
Azulmagia
Necrophobe, Barrier (4)

*******************************************************************************
                               SECTION 02 - TIPS
*******************************************************************************

Final Fantasy 5 has a few super enemies, some of which are even tougher than
the game's final boss.  They're all optional, so you don't have to fight them
if you don't want to, but they're there if you want the challenge.  They are
Garkimasra, D.Chimera, Skull Eater, MiniDragon, Prototype, ShieldDrgn, Sand
Crawl, Gil Turtle, Magic Pot, Gogo, Omega, and Shinryuu (there are easy ways to
beat Magic Pot and Gogo, but they're tough if you try to beat them in a real
fight).  See the Super Enemies Strategies section of this guide for tips on how
to beat them.

Make sure to read the notes at the top of the jobs section about the different
types of abilities.

For each statistic, the Normal and Mimic jobs will get the best of all the jobs
they've mastered.  See the Stats section for a list of the stats of each job.

There are some bugs in Final Fantasy 5 that you can exploit to your advantage.
And there are some bugs that you can fix to your advantage.  Or you could just
ignore them.  See the bugs section for more information.

In Worus Castle you have the option of letting Lone Wolf out of jail.  Doing so
doesn't seem to have any benefits, and if you do let him go, he'll take a few
of the treasure chests throughout the rest of the game so that you won't be
able to get them yourself.  The treasure chests he takes are:  Two Cabins in
Tycoon, the Thunder Whip in the Jacole Cave, a Cabin in Surgate, and a Cabin in
Carwen.

Underwater, just south of Karnak (it's not marked on the world map), is a
shrine with a man who will tell you some of the statistics of your party
(including what percentage of the hidden treasures you've found so far).  Note
that all of the hidden treasures in the game are listed in the walkthrough in
this guide.  Also note that you can get credit for getting 100% of the
treasures even if you let Lone Wolf out of jail in Worus (even though he takes
some of the treasures himself).

If you're fighting a monster that has a Wall that reflects spells you cast on
it, then you can get around that by putting a wall on one of your own
characters (using the White Magic spell Wall or the Esper Crbnkl), then casting
a spell on that character, and it'll be reflected onto one of the monsters at
random.  Walls don't reflect spells that have already been reflected once.

If you cast a spell on all four of your characters and it reflects back at the
enemy (because of the White Magic spell Wall or the Esper Crbnkl), then that
will make its effect stronger.

Some spells can be used on one target or multiple targets.  Their effect will
be stronger if you just use them on one target.

Some weapons (particularly rods and staves) increase the damage of some of your
spells when you have them equipped.  And some of them will cast a spell if you
use them as an item in battle when you have them equipped.  See the Weapons
section for additional information.

Some rods and staves will cast a spell if you use them as an item in battle
when you have them equipped (press up from the item list during a battle to
access the weapons you have equipped).  See the Weapons section for additional
information.

Enemies that are made of stone can be killed by the item Soft.

Some monsters are immune to instant death attacks and some status effects, like
frog and mini.  The monsters section has a list of which monsters are immune to
which status effects.  Most bosses are also immune to attacks that normally
decrease the target to less than 10 HP or take off a certain percentage of the
target's current HP.  So you'll have to beat them the hard way.

Spells that usually drain HP or MP from their target will backfire if they're
used against undead monsters.  Many spells that normally kill people will fully
heal undead monsters.  Spells that normally bring people back to life will kill
undead monsters (although that won't work on most undead bosses).  Spells that
usually heal people will hurt undead monsters.  Spells that usually restore
people to full HP will reduce an undead monster to less than 10 HP (although
they won't have any effect on most undead bosses either).  If you cast Cure3 on
just one target, it will restore that target to full HP.  But if you cast Cure3
on multiple targets, then it will only restore them a bit.  Which means that
Cure3 can only damage undead bosses if you cast it on multiple targets.  If
they're the only monster in the fight, then you can simulate casting it on all
of your allies and reflect it off a wall.

The Flame Shield, Flame Ring, Ice Shield, Bone Mail, and Coral Ring absorb
Fire, Fire, Ice, Poison, and Water damage, respectively.  The Chemist's mixes
Resist Fire, Resist Ice, and Resist Thunder let you absorb Fire, Ice, and
Thunder damage, respectively.  Using those can be helpful in beating enemies
who use elemental attacks against you, but when you're using them you can also
heal yourself using elemental attack magic rather than normal cure spells.

The Bone Mail makes its wearer immune to Instant Death Attacks, Darkness,
Poison status, Charm, Aging, and Berserk.  It also gives its wearer the undead
status.  As a result of that, most healing spells and items hurt you and you
can't be revived during a fight.  Although healing spells and items work
normally when you're not in a fight.  You can still be healed by the Blue Magic
spell WhiteWind or the Guard Ring.  And you can drain HP from enemies using the
Black Magic spell Drain, the Esper Sylph, the Chemist's mix Drain Kiss, the
Blue Magic spell Vampire, the Dance Jitterbug Duet, the Dragoon's !DrgnSwd
ability, or the Drain Sword, or by attacking an enemy after using the Magic
Sword spell Drain.  And if you equip something or use a Chemist mix that lets
you absorb damage from one element, then you can be healed using spells of that
element.  Since you're undead, you can be fully healed by the Black Magic spell
Doom, the Chemist's mix Death Potion, or the Blue Magic spells Roulette (which
won't necessarily hit the character you want it to hit) and L5 Doom (which can
only be cast on enemies, but can be reflected back onto you if the enemy has a
Wall, although then it won't necessarily hit the character you want it to hit,
and it will only work on characters who are at a level that is a multiple of
5).  The Doom Axe and Assassin Dagger also sometimes cast Doom when you attack
with them, and that will also fully heal someone with the Bone Mail, although
getting attacked with those weapons will still hurt on occasions when they
don't cast Doom.  The Bone Mail absorbs Poison damage, halves Ice damage, and
is weak against Fire damage and Holy damage.  As a result of that, characters
with the Bone Mail can also be partially healed by the Black Magic spell Bio,
the Chemist's mix Poison Breath, or by attacking them after using the Magic
Sword spells Venom or Bio.

This one paragraph uses the GBA translation:  Neromancers have the undead
status.  As a result of that, most healing spells and items hurt you during a
fight.  Although healing spells and items work normally when you're not in a
fight.  Necromancers can still be healed by the Blue Magic spell White Wind or
the Protect Ring.  And you can drain HP from enemies using the Black Magic
spell Drain, the Esper Sylph, the Chemist's mix Succubus Kiss, the Blue Magic
spell Vampire, the Dance Jitterbug, the Dragoon's !Lance ability, or the Blood
Sword, or by attacking an enemy after using the Magic Sword spell Drain.  And
if you equip something or use a Chemist mix that lets you absorb damage from
one element, then you can be healed using spells of that element.  Since you're
undead, you can be fully healed by the Black Magic spell Death, the Chemist's
mix Death Potion, or the Blue Magic spells Roulette (which won't necessarily
hit the character you want it to hit) and Level 5 Death (which can only be cast
on enemies, but can be reflected back onto you if the enemy has a Wall,
although then it won't necessarily hit the character you want it to hit, and it
will only work on characters who are at a level that is a multiple of 5).  The
Death Sickle and Assassin's Dagger also sometimes cast Death when you attack
with them, and that will also fully heal a Necromancer, although getting
attacked with those weapons will still hurt on occasions when they don't cast
Death.  Unlike people equipped with the Bone Mail, Necromancers can be revived
during fights by spells like Raise, although spells like Raise will hurt them
if they're already alive.  And unlike people equipped with the Bone Mail,
Necromancers do not absorb Poison damage, so they can't be healed by poison
attacks.

The Chicken Knife might cast Escape when you use it with the Fight, Aim, or
SwdSlap commands.  But it won't cast Escape if you use it with the BuildUp,
Capture, Jump, or X-Fight commands; the Sword Dance; or the Blue Magic spell
GblinPnch.

The Drain Sword has a low Hit% (25%).  But you can get around that if you use
it with the !Aim, !Jump, !Throw, or !X-Fight commands or the Sword Dance.  Also
note that for most weapons the amount of damage that the Hunter's !X-Fight
ability does per hit is different than the amount of damage that you do by
attacking normally.  But it's the same for the Drain Sword.  And since !X-Fight
hits four times per round, that means it'll do four times as much damage as
attacking normally.

The sword Excailbur has a low attack power in general.  But it does as much
damage as a normal weapon with an attack power of 100 when used with the Blue
Magic spell GblinPnch or the Ninja's !Throw ability.

Attacking an enemy with the Monk's Counter ability doesn't cause the enemy to
counterattack.  So if you're fighting an enemy with a weak normal attack but a
strong counterattack, it might be good to not initiate any attacks against them
yourself.  You can just wait for them to attack you, then you can damage them
with the Monk's Counter ability, and you won't have to worry about their
counterattack.

The Knight's !Guard command protects the character who uses it from physical
attacks for one round.  A good defense isn't usually useful on its own, since
one character can't both use !Guard and attack at the same time.  But !Guard
can be very useful when you combine it with the Monk's Counter ability.  !Guard
will work for defense, and you can simultaneously hurt your enemies by
counterattacking with Counter (which works automatically when it's equipped).

The Knight's !Guard command can also be useful when you combine it with the
Knight's Cover ability.  If one of your characters has the Cover ability, then
they will intercept attacks aimed at their allies who are low on HP (less than
1/8 their Max HP).  Give one of your characters the Cover ability and have him
use the !Guard command, and make sure the other three characters are low on HP.
Then that one character will cover the defense of the whole party on his own,
and the other three characters will be free to attack.  Note that !Guard
doesn't protect against magic attacks, so these strategies can't be used for
them.

The Ninja's !Image command and the White Magic spell Image work with the Cover
ability in the same way that the Knight's !Guard command does.  Although unlike
!Guard, they won't allow you to use the Monk's Counter ability, and they'll
only cover two attacks.  But unlike !Guard, they'll last for more than one
round, if you don't get hit twice in that round.

If all of your living characters use the Bard's !Hide ability to hide at the
same time, it'll result in your running away from the fight.  Although if all
of your living characters hide at the same time during a fight from which you
can't run away (like a boss fight), they can stay hidden indefinitely and the
enemy won't be able to damage you.  If you wait long enough, the enemy will
waste all its MP casting spells that can't hurt you.  It might take a while.
Although you should note the "Hidden Zombies" bug in the Bugs section, about an
error with hiding.

Equip one, two, or three of your characters with a Wall Ring and have an enemy
turn them into a Zombie.  Then have your other characters use the Bard's !Hide
ability.  The enemies won't be able to hurt your characters who are hiding, and
Zombies can't be hurt, so your party will be invincible.  And spells that the
enemies cast on you will be reflected off of the Zombie's Wall Ring, which can
still hurt your enemies.  If your Zombie character has a weapon that casts a
spell (notably the Flame Whip, Wonder Rod, Doom Axe, or Assassin Dagger), then
when they attack themself, the spell will be reflected off of their Wall and
will hurt your enemies.  If your Zombie character is using a Fire Rod, Ice Rod,
Thunder Rod, Venom Rod, or Wizard Rod, then their attacks will be reflected off
of their Wall and will hurt your enemies.  If you equip one of your characters
who are hiding with the Masamune, that will let them go first in battles, which
will ensure that they're able to hide before they get hit.  Although you should
note the "Hidden Zombies" bug in the Bugs section, about an error with hiding.

The Blue Magic spells L2 Old, L3 Flare, L4 Qrter, and L5 Doom will work on
enemies who are at some levels, but not enemies who are at other levels.  But
you can change an enemy's level with the Blue Magic spell DrkShock or the
Chemist's !Combine potions Sampson Power and Dragon Power.  Or you can give the
enemy the Aging Status (using the Dimen Magic spell Old, the Blue Magic spell
L2 Old, the Blue Magic spell Time Slip, or the Ancient Sword), which constantly
decreases their level.  That might allow you to use those Blue Magic spells on
enemies on whom you wouldn't otherwise be able to use them.  Multiple Sampson
Powers and Dragon Powers can be used cumulatively, but you can't raise an
enemy's level higher than 255.  So if you can't get an enemy's level to
something divisible by 3 or 5 by any other way, you can still increase it over
and over again until it gets to 255, then L3 Flare and L5 Doom will work.  L2
Old and L5 Doom will even work on bosses if they're at the right level, so
those can be very useful spells.

The Magic Pots in the Phoenix Tower will leave if you give them an Elixir.
Although you might have to give them more than one Elixir to get them to leave.
If you give them one Elixir and they don't leave, you will not be able to cast
the Dimen Magic spell Reset to start the battle over from the beginning in the
hopes that the Magic Pot will leave after only one Elixir.  You can't cast
magic during the fights with Magic Pots.  But you can use the Wonder Rod as an
item in battle when you have it equipped (press up from the item list during a
battle to access the weapons you have equipped), and that will cast Reset.  The
Wonder Rod is found in the Fork Tower.

Make sure the treasure chest on floor 11 of Exdeath's Castle is open before you
proceed through the castle.  That will cause Gilgamesh to attack you there in
Exdeath's Castle, and I think he will only be there for the other fights later
in the game if you fight him there in Exdeath's Castle.  You can steal great
equipment from Gilgamesh, so being able to fight him is a good thing.

Part of the way through the Great Forest of Mua there will be a fire then
you'll take cover in a Moogle's cave until the fire is out.  There's a treasure
chest near the entrance to the cave.  If you wait to get it until after the
fire is out, the fire will have changed it from an Aegis Shield to a Flame
Shield.

The Summoner's !Conjure ability randomly calls one of the Espers you've gained
with no MP cost.  If you want, you can skip getting the optional weak Espers,
and that will make it more likely to call a strong Esper.  Although it is kind
of satisfying to get all the Espers.

If you want to cast the Black Magic spell Fire on an enemy, then you could give
one of your characters the job of Black Mage and have them cast Fire.  But if
you've already learned the !Black ability for use with other jobs, then it
would actually be more effective to give one of your characters the job of
Summoner and the !Black ability, and then have them cast Fire.  That's because
the Summoner has greater Magic Power than the Black Mage, and the amount of
damage that most spells do is based on your Magic Power.  If you want one of
your Knights to attack an enemy with the sword Excalibur, then it would
actually be more effective if you gave them the Monk's ability Brawl.  That's
because the Brawl ability boosts your strength to the level of a Monk, and the
amount of damage that most weapons do is based on your Strength.  It also helps
to equip armor that boosts your Strength.  These are examples, but there are
lots of other things you can do like this.  See the Stats section for
information on how your stats are determined and what they affect.

The Dimen Magic spell Hast2, the Blue Magic spell MghtyGrd, the Esper Golem,
and the Esper Crbnkl can all be useful defensive spells in fights against
bosses.  If you don't have Hast2, you can use the Dimen Magic spell Haste
instead.  If you don't have MghtyGrd, then you can use the White Magic spells
Armor and Shell instead.  And if you don't have Crbnkl, then you can use the
White Magic spell Wall instead.  But Haste, Armor, Shell, and Wall are all
pains in the ass to use, since you have to cast them separately on each of your
characters.

In world three there is a hidden town called Mirage that has hidden equipment
and magic salesmen.  See the notes about it in part of the walkthrough titled
The Airship.

Make sure you get all the Blue Magic spells, Espers, Songs, and Genji
equipment, the job Mimic, and the Chicken Knife or BraveBld.  It's easy to miss
some of them as you go through the game.  They're all pointed out in the
walkthrough section.

You'll find different enemies on different parts of each dungeon.  So don't
spend too much time looking for an enemy on a floor where it can't be found.

You can win ABP easily from the monster Galura.  Galura will never attack you.
You can kill it if you want, but if you wait a bit, it'll leave on its own.
Galura can be found on the World Map on the plains west of Carwen in world 1,
near Worus Tower in world 1, or on the eastern part of the second forest south
of the bridge that is west of Tycoon in world 3.

The Statues in the basement of Castle Bal give a lot of ABP.  It's the best
place to gain ABP until very late in the game.  You can kill them all with the
Blue Magic spells L5 Doom or L3 Flare, or by using the item Soft on them.

The best place to gain ABP is in the Void at the end of the game.  A typical
fight in the Void can give you 30 ABP, and in the second and fourth areas
you'll have a chance of randomly encountering enemies called Movers, and if you
beat them you'll get 199 ABP.  Although Movers sometimes end the fight early,
so in order to get the ABP you'll have to beat them quickly before they can do
that.  The enemies in the Void don't give you experience points, so while it
can be a good place to gain new abilities, you should go back to the Castle
section of the Cleft of Dimension to gain experience.  You can get a lot of
experience from Iron Giants, who can be found easily in the room right before
the castle's roof.



*******************************************************************************
                               SECTION 03 - BUGS
*******************************************************************************

You can get additional information on how some of these bugs work from J.L.
Tseng's (a.k.a. InstructorTrepe's) FFV Algorithms and Stats FAQ.  It can be
found on the page for the SNES version of Final Fantasy 5 at www.gamefaqs.com.
All of the information about how to fix some of the bugs was gotten from that
FAQ.

1.  REDIRECTING SPELLS
This bug applies to the SNES version but not the Gameboy Advance version.  I'm
not sure about the Playstation version.
If you use the Chemist's mixing ability then you use !X-Magic in the same fight
to cast two spells, then both of the spells will be cast on the target of the
second spell.  That allows you to cast a spell on all targets even if you can
normally only cast it on one target.  And it allows you to cast a spell on
enemies that can normally only be cast on allies, and vice versa.  For example,
if your first spell is Armor (targeted for one ally) and your second spell is
Cure (cast on all allies), then Armor will end up being cast on all allies too.
Using this bug with the White Magic spell Holy causes the game to freeze.

2.  SKIPPING THE PYRAMID
This bug applies to the SNES version but not the Gameboy Advance version.  I'm
not sure about the Playstation version.
At the beginning of world three, Exdeath knocks you from Guido's Cave to the
Ancient Library.  Normally you can't get back to Guido's Cave until later in
the game.  But if you cast the Dimen Magic spell Exit before you leave the
Ancient Library, then it will take you back to Guido's Cave.  And when Exdeath
knocked you to the Ancient Library, he also created a path through the
mountains that will let you access areas of the map that you couldn't reach
from Guido's Cave earlier.  You can ride Boco to Mirage and Castle Bal, where
you can get the Black Chocobo and Hiryuu (respectively), which will allow you
to access even more areas of the map.  (Keep in mind that the Black Chocobo can
only land in forests and the Hiryuu can only land on plains, since there are
some areas that only one of them can reach.)  Using this bug lets you complete
the parts of my walkthrough titled The Airship, Odin, Bahamut, Phoenix Tower,
Solitary Island Temple, and Fork Tower before you go through the Pyramid, get
Lenna back at the Elder Tree, or get the airship.  (With the following
exceptions:  You have to finish the Pyramid before you can get the MagicLamp,
the Esper Bahamut, and the three legendary sealed weapons that you get in
exchange for the Pyramid's stone tablet.  You have to finish the Pyramid and
then get Lenna back at the Elder tree before you can get the Esper Syldra.  And
you have to finish the Pyramid, then get Lenna back at the Elder Tree, and then
get the airship before you can get the Blue Magic spell MghtyGrd or the Mirage
Vest.)

Using this bug also gives you one last chance to get all the treasures and
spells in Worus Town, Worus Castle, Istory, and Lix.  (Most importantly the
Esper Shiva, the Love Song, and the Charm Song, which you otherwise wouldn't be
able to get in world 3 if you didn't get them in world 1.)  Although you still
can't get the Espers Shoat or Carbunkle in world 3 if you didn't get them in
world 2, and in world 3 you still can't get Ramuh in the same place that you
got him in world 1.  And you won't be able to go back to the Moogle Village.
The forest where the Moogle Village is supposed to be located will just be a
normal forest.

Note that if you use this bug to go through the Solitary Island Temple before
you get Lenna back at the Elder Tree, then you can also automatically get Lenna
back by going into the Fork Tower.  You'll still have her when you leave the
tower.  Amusingly, if you do this, then later she'll participate in the fight
at the Elder Tree for her own unconscious body.  Note that if you do that,
she'll be dead at the end of the fight at the Elder Tree, even if her HP never
fell to 0 during the fight.  If she was the only character alive at the end of
the fight, then you can walk around with all four of your characters dead.  But
you'd better bring one of them back to life before you get into a fight,
otherwise the game will realize that you're dead, and it'll be over.

Note that if you use this bug to land the Black Chocobo or Hiryuu next to the
Ancient Library, then you go through the Pyramid and get Lenna back at the
Elder Tree, then the Black Chocobo or Hiryuu will get stuck when the Ancient
Library is sucked into the Cleft of Dimension.

3.  STUCK IN THE ELDER FOREST
This bug applies to the SNES version but not the Gameboy Advance version.  I'm
not sure about the Playstation version.
If you land the Black Chocobo in the middle of the forest with the Elder Tree
in world three and then walk out, you won't be able to walk back in and get it
again.  Same goes for the regular Chocobo.  If the Black Chocobo gets stuck in
the forest with the Elder Tree, then you can use the regular Chocobo to get it
back.  But if you get both the Black Chocobo and the regular Chocobo stuck in
the forest, then you won't be able to get them out again.

4.  STUCK IN GUIDO'S CAVE
This bug applies to the SNES version but not the Gameboy Advance version.  I'm
not sure about the Playstation version.
If you land the Airship or Hiryuu on the entrance to Guido's Cave in world
three, they'll be stuck there.

5.  HIDING FROM PHYSICAL ATTACKS
This bug applies to the SNES version but not the Gameboy Advance version.  I'm
not sure about the Playstation version.
If all of your living characters use the Bard's !Hide ability to hide at the
same time during a fight from which you can't run away (like a boss fight),
then your enemy won't be able to hurt you.  When it tries to attack you, a
message saying "Ineffective" will be displayed.  Return from hiding immediately
after the enemy tries to attack you a second time, and you will be protected
from physical attacks.  You won't be protected from magic attacks, and your
protection from physical attacks will end if you get hit by a magic attack.
But this can be very helpful against bosses that only use physical attacks,
like Gil Turtle.  Although you should note the "Hidden Zombies" bug, about an
error with hiding.

6.  JUMPING INVINCIBILITY
This bug applies to the SNES version but not the Gameboy Advance version.  I'm
not sure about the Playstation version.
Have all of your living characters use the Dragoon's !Jump ability.  If an
enemy tries to attack you while you're all in the air, it'll be an ineffective
attack.  Then after you land, it'll take a while for the game to realize that
you're a valid target again.  Your enemy's next attack, and any counter attacks
that it does in the meantime, will also register as ineffective.  It's easiest
to make this bug work if you kill off three of your characters, since otherwise
there'll be a lag between when your first character jumps and your last
character jumps, and by the time the last character has jumped, the first
character is about ready to land, which doesn't leave much time for the enemy
to try to attack while you're all in the air.

7.  TRANSFORMING ITEMS
This bug applies to the SNES version but not the Gameboy Advance version.  I'm
not sure about the Playstation version.
Give the character at the top of your lineup the Normal or Mimic job and equip
them with a Ribbon, a White Robe or Angel Robe, and a Guard Ring.  Get into a
fight, and have one of your other characters cast the Dimen Magic spell Quick
(which gives them two more attacks in that round).  Then on the first of those
attacks, have them kill themself.  Then end the fight normally (with three of
your characters, including the character at the top of your lineup, still
alive).  It doesn't always work (it seems to only work about 25% of the time),
but if it worked, then the things that the character at the top of your lineup
was holding in his hands will be changed.  If it didn't work, you can load your
game from before you tried it and try again, and it might work.

If the character at the top of your lineup had a shield in his left hand, then
that shield will be transformed.  If the character at the top of your lineup's
left hand was empty and he had a weapon in his right hand (which can be a
double grip only weapon, or not), then the weapon in his right hand will be
transformed and the item By RPGe (which was called Efu Efu in a previous
translation) will be in his left hand.

In savestate hacking a code is assigned to each item and piece of equipment in
the game.  It's a number in Hexidecimal.  (0 to 9 are normal, then after 9
comes A, then B, then C, then D, then E, then F, then 10, and so on.)  The code
is listed in the weapons, armor, and items sections of this guide.  When an
item is transformed through this trick, it gets transformed into the item with
the immediately previous code.  So for example the Javelin, whose code is 17,
would be transformed into the item whose code is 16, which is the Ragnarok.
The Dragoon Spear (20) would be transformed into the Holy Spear (1F), which
would be transformed into the DblLance (1E).

When you use this trick to get the item By RPGe in your left hand, that item
will protect you from all physical attacks.  Although if you unequip it (and
it'll get unequipped automatically when your equipment is optimized when you
change jobs or abilities), you won't be able to reequip it without doing this
trick again.

8.  KISS OF BLESSING
This bug applies to the SNES version but not the Gameboy Advance version.  I'm
not sure about the Playstation version.
The Kiss of Blessing (created using the Chemist's !Combine ability to combine a
MaidnKiss and a Revivify) berserks the target.  But it will even work on
enemies who are otherwise immune to being berserked.  Even bosses.  In addition
to keeping them from casting spells, Berserking some enemies stops them from
doing other things.  It stops the first form of the final boss of the game from
changing into his second form.  And if you use it on Ramuh, Shoat, or Sekmet
then beat them in a fight, it will stop the game from realizing that you beat
them.  Normally they won't appear again after you beat them, but if you used
the Kiss of Blessing on them before you beat them, you can encounter them
again.  If you're playing the Super Nintendo version of Final Fantasy 5 on your
computer (with a ROM), then you can use a Hex Editor to fix this error.  See
J.L. Tseng's (a.k.a. InstructorTrepe's) FFV Algorithms and Stats FAQ for
information on how to fix it.  It can be found on the page for the SNES version
of Final Fantasy 5 at www.gamefaqs.com.

9.  INFINITE ITEMS
This bug applies to the SNES version but not the Gameboy Advance version.  I'm
not sure about the Playstation version.
Step 1 (before the battle):  Have one character with one or both hands empty.
Have one character with the !Steal ability.  (Note that Thieves automatically
have the !Steal ability.)  Have one character with the !Throw ability.  (Note
that Ninjas automatically have the !Throw ability.)  (You can have one
character fill two or three of those roles, if you want.)

During the battle:  Step 2:  Have the character with one or both hands empty
equip a weapon or shield from your inventory.  (It must be the only copy of
that weapon or shield that was in your inventory.)  Step 3:  Throw the empty
spot in your inventory that used to contain the weapon or shield that you just
equipped.  Step 4:  Steal from your enemy.  (The trick won't work if you
already had any copies of the thing you're stealing in your inventory at the
beginning of the battle.)  Step 5:  Get rid of the thing you just stole, by
using the Ninja's !Throw ability, the Chemist's !Drink ability, the Chemist's
!Combine ability, or just using it as an item (if it's something like a
potion).  This can't be done with things like armor that can't be thrown,
drunk, combined, or used.  Step 6:  End the fight normally.  When it's over,
you'll have an infinite amount of the item you stole.

When you have an infinite amount of an item, you can only sell them one at a
time.  You'll also have the option of selling 255 of them, but if you do that,
then you won't have an infinite amount of them anymore.  If you buy more of the
item or sort your inventory, you won't have an infinite amount of them anymore
(sorting changes it so that you only have 99 of them).  When you have an
infinite amount of an item, you can't use any of them outside of battle
(potions, example).  So you might want to sort your inventory so you can use
the items outside of battle or so you can sell a few dozen of them all at once
and still have some left.  Without using this trick, you can get an infinite
amount of an item through savestate hacking by putting 255 copies of the item
in your inventory.

If you do step 3 twice before proceeding to step 4, then you can do this trick
without having to do step 5.  That lets you do it for things like armor that
can't be thrown, drunk, combined, or used.  Although that results in you only
getting 99 copies of the item, rather than an infinite amount.

10.  AVOID RANDOM BATTLES
This bug applies to the SNES and Gameboy Advance versions.  I'm not sure about
the Playstation version.
On the world map (but not in dungeons) you can usually avoid random battles if
you open then close the menu every few steps you take.  Opening the menu causes
the game to reset the number of steps you have to take before you get into a
random battle.

11.  POWER DRINK
This bug applies to the SNES and Gameboy Advance versions.  I'm not sure about
the Playstation version.
The Power Drink is supposed to increase your attack power for the duration of
the battle, but it doesn't work.  It actually only ends up increasing the
attack power of the Blue Magic spell GblinPnch.  If you're playing the Super
Nintendo version of Final Fantasy 5 on your computer (with a ROM), then you can
use a Hex Editor to fix this error.  See J.L. Tseng's (a.k.a.
InstructorTrepe's) FFV Algorithms and Stats FAQ for information on how to fix
it.  It can be found on the page for the SNES version of Final Fantasy 5 at
www.gamefaqs.com.

12.  OBSERVE
This bug applies to the SNES and Gameboy Advance versions.  I'm not sure about
the Playstation version.
The Blue Mage's !Observe ability is supposed to detect an enemy's HP and
weakness, but it only actually detects an enemy's HP.  If you're playing the
Super Nintendo version of Final Fantasy 5 on your computer (with a ROM), then
you can use a Hex Editor to fix this error by changing the ROM's offset 26E94
from 08 to 10.

13.  HIDDEN ZOMBIES
This bug applies to the SNES version but not the Gameboy Advance version.  I'm
not sure about the Playstation version.
Enemies can't usually attack you when you're using the Bard's !Hide ability.
Although you can still be turned into a Zombie when you're using the Bard's
!Hide ability.  And if you are, the game freezes.  Wearing an Angel Ring can
prevent this, since it makes you immune to Zombie status.

14.  ZOMBIED TO LIFE
This bug applies to the SNES and Gameboy Advance versions.  I'm not sure about
the Playstation version.
If an enemy attempts to turn a dead character into a zombie, it'll actually
bring them back to life if they have an Angel Ring equipped.

15.  WONDER ROD
This bug applies to the SNES version.  It's not applicable to the Gameboy
Advance or Playstation versions.
The Wonder Rod can normally only cast White or Black magic.  But if you're
playing the Super Nintendo version of Final Fantasy 5 on your computer (with a
ROM), then you can use a Hex Editor to get it to cast other types of magic.  It
can even cast spells that can normally only be cast by monsters.  See the
Hacking section for additional information.

16.  UNCATCHABLE
This bug applies to the SNES version.  It's not applicable to the Gameboy
Advance or Playstation versions.
If you're playing the Super Nintendo version of Final Fantasy 5 on your
computer (with a ROM), then you can use a Hex Editor to simulate having caught
some enemies that normally can't be caught.  See the Hacking and Catches
sections for additional information.

17.  SWDSLAP
This bug applies to the SNES and Gameboy Advance versions.  I'm not sure about
the Playstation version.
The Samurai's !SwdSlap ability is supposed to Paralyze the enemy, but it
doesn't.  It's just like a normal Fight command, except when you use it against
an enemy that has the Charm, Sleep, or Controlled status, they will keep that
status.

18.  X-ZONE CATCH
This bug applies to the SNES and Gameboy Advance versions.  I'm not sure about
the Playstation version.
If you use the Mediator's !Catch ability to catch a MossFungus or Gel Fish and
release it, it won't do anything.  If you're playing the Super Nintendo version
of Final Fantasy 5 on your computer (with a ROM), then you can use a Hex Editor
to fix this error by changing the ROM's offset 1088C5 from E9 to 47 and
changing offset 1088E0 from E9 to 47.

19.  BERSERKER RUNNING
This bug applies to the SNES version but not the Gameboy Advance version.  I'm
not sure about the Playstation version.
If all your living characters are Berserkers, then your party won't be able to
run away.  And in that case, if one of your characters uses the Chicken Knife
and it triggers the !Escape command, that'll cause a glitch that prevents your
future attacks from doing any damage.

20.  INCREASING DAMAGE
This bug applies to the SNES and Gameboy Advance versions.  I'm not sure about
the Playstation version.
There's a bug that decreases the amount of damage done by some weapons.  See
exception 5 in Part 5 of the Stats Section for information on it and how to fix
it.

21.  ROUNDING
This bug applies to the SNES version.  It's not applicable to the Gameboy
Advance or Playstation versions.
The amount of damage that your attacks do is computed by a formula with several
steps that rounds each step down to the nearest number.  As a result of that,
sometimes increasing your level won't increase the amount of damage you do,
since the increase is so small that it gets rounded to zero.  At
http://www.tenchinohoukai.greatnow.com/patches.html there is a patch (called
the Fractional M Patch) you can use which will stop the formula from rounding
if you're playing the Super Nintendo version of Final Fantasy 5 on your
computer (with a ROM).  This patch will also fix the "Increasing Damage" bug,
and should not be applied to a ROM if you have already fixed the "Increasing
Damage" bug yourself.  That website also has patches that can be used to fix
some of the other bugs I listed if you don't want to change them yourself with
a Hex Editor.  That website has patches for some things in other games too.

22.  WALKING IN AIR
This bug applies to the SNES version but not the Gameboy Advance version.  I'm
not sure about the Playstation version.
On the North Mountain you start outside, then you go through a cave, then you
go outside for awhile, then into another cave, and so on.  Take one step down
from the entrance to the second cave, then go left a bit, then up one step,
then left and you'll be able to walk off the side of the cliff and walk around
in midair.

23.  WALKING THROUGH WALLS 1
This bug applies to the SNES version but not the Gameboy Advance version.  I'm
not sure about the Playstation version.
In the Pyramid there is a place where you drop from 6F to 5F, then walk through
a secret passage to a one way door to the south.  Instead of going through the
one way door to the south, you can walk north and walk around inside the walls.
You can get to other rooms of the Pyramid that way, but if you enter another
room that way through one of its doors, you won't be able to exit normally
through its other door, or drop down to the next floor because of the sand
falls.  If you walk into the walls, you can also reenter the normal rooms
through the southern walls of the rooms that the sand falls drop you into, or
through the wall south and one square right of one of the sand falls.

24.  WALKING THROUGH WALLS 2
This bug applies to the SNES version but not the Gameboy Advance version.  I'm
not sure about the Playstation version.
If you walk left or right at the entrance to Istory Falls (inside Istory Falls,
but before the gargoyles), you can walk around inside the walls.  You can get
to the second area that way, and there's a bonfire inside the walls.

25.  WALKING INTO WALLS
This bug applies to the SNES and Gameboy Advance versions.  I'm not sure about
the Playstation version.
In the town of Kelb there are three wolves running around in circles.  The
wolves always turn left whenever they run into something.  If you stand in
their way, it's possible to get them to turn and run out of their normal circle
and hit a dead end with nowhere to turn, which will cause them to keep walking
into a wall.

26.  TWO GALUFS
This bug applies to the SNES version but not the Gameboy Advance version.  I'm
not sure about the Playstation version.
After you finish the Barrier Tower, there will be a short period where Galuf is
standing in one place and the rest of your party is in another place.  As
usual, the rest of your party will be represented by whoever was in the top
spot.  If you put Galuf in the top spot before you finished the Barrier Tower,
it'll look like he's in two places at once.

27.  GALUF'S GHOST
This bug applies to the SNES and Gameboy Advance versions.  I'm not sure about
the Playstation version.
The first time you go to the Sealed Castle Kuzar in world two, Galuf will tell
you about it.  If you wait to go there until after Galuf dies, it'll still say
that he's the one telling you about it.  Although you have to do it while
you're still in world two.

28.  LENNA'S GHOST
This bug applies to the SNES and Gameboy Advance versions.  I'm not sure about
the Playstation version.
If you search the upper left hand bookshelf in the room with all the
bookshelves in Castle Surgate, Lenna will say something.  If you search it when
she's not in your party at the beginning of world 3, she'll still say something.



*******************************************************************************
                               SECTION 04 - JOBS
*******************************************************************************

If you're playing the Playstation or Gameboy Advance versions of Final Fantasy
5, see the Jobs Translations section for a translation of the job names in this
section.

The Normal job has the Fight ability and the Items ability, plus it can equip
two abilities that you've learned from other jobs.  The Mimic job has the Mimic
ability, plus it can equip three abilities that you've learned from other jobs,
but it doesn't have the Fight or Items abilities unless you include them among
your three chosen abilities.  All other jobs have the Fight ability, the Items
ability, and the First Battle Option of their own job, plus they can equip one
ability that you've learned from other jobs.  (Note that the Berserker job
doesn't have a First Battle Option.)

Abilities of type S (Status Skills) and I (Innate Abilities) are used
automatically, but you must manually select abilities of type L (Learned Battle
Options) and F (First Battle Options) in battle whenever you want to use them.

You must learn Status Skills and Learned Battle Options (by gaining ABP and
increasing your job level) before you can use them.  And you must learn the
Innate Abilities and First Battle Options of other jobs before you can use
them, but a job can use its own Innate Abilities and First Battle Option even
if they haven't yet been learned for use with other jobs.

Status Skills, Learned Battle Options, and First Battle Options must be
equipped as abilities in order for you to use them (even those of your current
job).  And you must equip the Innate Abilities of other jobs in order to use
them, but a job can use its own Innate Abilities without equipping them.  And
the Normal and Mimic jobs can use the Innate Abilities of all the jobs they've
mastered without equipping them.  (Therefore, the Normal and Mimic jobs become
very powerful after you master a few other jobs.)

The Stats section contains information on the effect that different jobs and
abilities have on your statistics.

Abilities list (the level at which you gain the ability is listed first, then
the ABP to get to that level, then the ability's type, then the ability and
description.)

Knight:
1  010  I  Cover - Cover near-death allies.
2  030  F  !Guard - Nullify physical attacks.
3  050  S  Dbl Grip - Lets you hold some weapons with both hands to doubles the

4  100  S  Equip Shields - Lets you equip shields even if your current job
                can't normally equip them.
5  150  S  Equip Armor - Lets you equip body armor that knights can equip even
                if your current job can't normally equip it.  Nothing lets you
                equip body armor that knights can't equip if your current job
                can't normally equip it.
6  350  S  Equip Swords - Lets you equip General Swords and Knight Swords even
                if your current job can't normally equip them.

Monk:
0   NA  F  !Kick - Physical attack on all enemies.  Does more damage when
                you're at high levels.  Does more damage if you have the Kaiser
                Knuckles equipped.  Note that !Kick can never be learned for
                use with other jobs.
1  015  L  !Buildup - Attacks an enemy for double the damage of a normal
                attack, but it takes extra time to do it.

Thief:
1  010  I  Passages - See hidden passages.  Equipping this on one character
                lets it work for the whole group.
2  020  L  !Escape - Run away quickly from most monsters.
3  030  I  Dash - Hold cancel while walking to double walking speed.  Equipping
                this on one character lets it work for the whole group.

5  075  I  Caution - Prevent attacks from behind.  Equipping this on one
                character lets it work for the whole group.
6  150  L  !Capture - Steal 'treasure' and attack simultaneously.  See the
                monsters section for a list of what monsters have what treasure
                to steal.

                Some monsters can't be analyzed (see the monsters section).

Berserker:
1  100  I  Berserk - Prevents you from being able to control your characters.
                They continuously attack enemies at random, but their attacks
                do more damage than attacking normally.  The amount of extra
                damage is a complicated formula that varies with your enemy's
                defense, but it does at least 50% more damage than attacking
                normally.  Note that unlike other Innate abilities, Berserk is
                not used automatically by the Normal and Mimic jobs once you
                master the Berserker job.
2  400  S  Equip Axes and Hammers - Lets you equip axes and hammers even if
                your current job can't normally equip them.

                (or 1/2 if you have the CornaJar equipped).  Then later you can
                release it and it will attack other monsters.  If it uses an
                attack that will only affect one monster, then it will target a
                monster at random.  Some monsters can't be caught.  See the
                catches section for information about what attack each monster
                uses when you catch it.

                that each attack does is different than if you attack normally.
                It cuts through the enemy's defense, so the difference varies
                depending on your enemy's defense, but each of the four hits
                usually does a little more than half as much damage as one
                normal hit would do (unless you're using the Drain Sword, in
                which case each of the four hits does the same amount of damage

                the Innate Abilities Counter, Barrier, or Berserk (note that
                Mimicking someone who is Berserked will cause you to attack,
                but will not give you the Berserked status)).  You can Mimic
                the use of spells or items without using MP or using up items
                (except the Dimen Magic spell Meteo).  When you mimic someone
                who used the Dimen Magic spell Quick, only their last turn will

armor that knights can't equip (other than the Rainbow); accessories (other
than the accessory Red); or the weapons Full Moon, DblLance, or RisinSun if

*******************************************************************************
                      SECTION 05 - MY JOB RECOMMENDATIONS
*******************************************************************************

If you're playing the Playstation or Gameboy Advance versions of Final Fantasy
5, see the Jobs Translations section for a translation of the job names in this
section.

I recommend you start out with one White Mage, one Black Mage, and two Knights.
But do whatever works for you.  And once your characters have learned some of
the abilities of a job, have them switch their jobs around, so they become well
balanced.  Or at least have the magic users learn different types of magic and
the physical fighters learn different types of physical fighting.  If you're
only going to have two magic users, then I recommend that you make Galuf and
Faris the magic users.  Note that I also recommend that you temporarily switch
some of your characters to Blue Mages to learn the Blue Magic spells as they
become available.  The Thief and Monk jobs can be useful, but they're a lower
priority.

Note that the White Mage's 7th level sucks.  Your White Mages should switch to
another job once they reach level 6.  And the Black Mage's 7th level can be
useful, but it's a lower priority than some of the other abilities you can get.
None of the Knight's abilities are especially good, so when you get other
physical fighting jobs later you should switch your Knights to them so you can
learn the abilities of those other jobs.  But it can be useful to have some of
your characters be Knights now, not so that you can learn their abilities, but
just because they're strong.

Also note that while in general it is good to have a well balanced party, you
might want to switch all four of your characters to the same job for some boss
fights.  The Black Mage job and the Summoner job (which you'll get later) are
especially good for some boss fights.

When you get the second set of jobs, I recommend that you have your Black Mage
switch to a Summoner and learn both types of magic.  At some point all magic
users should learn the Red Mage's !X-Magic ability.  It's very useful.  The
Time Mage and Mystic Knight jobs can be useful, but they're only a medium level
priority.  Berserker sucks, don't waste your time with that.  If you're going
to use a Time Mage, note that their 7th level sucks.  Your Time Mages should
switch to another job once they reach level 6.  You should definitely have a
Summoner reach level 5, but getting it to the 6th level to master it isn't
necessary.  It can be useful, but it's a lower priority.

I recommend that all your physical fighters should learn the Ninja's 2-Handed
ability at some point.  It's very useful.  It's like the Knight's Dbl Grip
ability, but it's innate, so once you've mastered the Ninja job, the Normal and
Mimic Jobs won't have to equip the 2-Handed ability in order to use it.  And it
works with more weapons than Dbl Grip does.  If you want to use Blue Magic,
then I recommend that you have someone learn the Mediator's !Control ability
(which he gets at level 2), because it can be helpful in getting monsters to
use some Blue Magic spells so that you can learn them.  But you should switch
to another job once you reach level 2.  The Mediator's other abilities suck.
The Geomancer's !Terrain ability can be useful, but it's a lower priority.
Although it might be more useful than I give it credit for.  The skills that
Geomancers learn after level 1 can be useful, but they're a lower priority too.
And they work for the whole group even if they're only equipped on one
character, so there's no point in having all of your characters learn them.

I recommend that all your physical fighters should learn the Hunter's !X-Fight
ability at some point.  It's very useful (even more useful than the Ninja's
2-Handed ability, although you should learn them both).  I never used the Bard,
but it's probably more useful than I gave it credit for.  Its only really good
songs aren't learned until late in the game though, so I don't recommend
learning to sing them now.

The Samurai and Chemist jobs can be useful, but they're a low priority.
Although they might be more useful than I give them credit for.  I never used
the Dragoon, but it may be more useful than I gave it credit for.  Dancer
sucks, don't waste your time with it.

Gaining ABP in the Mimic job could hypothetically be useful, but learning its
ability for use with other jobs is a low priority.  If you want to use the
!Mimic ability, you might as well just be a Mimic, and you don't have to gain
ABP for the Mimic to use its own !Mimic ability.  So there's not a lot of need
to spend time gaining ABP for this job.

I don't have recommendations about the Oracle, Cannoneer, Gladiator, or
Necromancer jobs yet.  And my recommendations about the other jobs were made
without taking into account the alternatives presented by the Oracle,
Cannoneer, Gladiator, or Necromancer jobs.

               STATS PART 1 - JOBS
--------------------------------------------------
The table below shows the statistics for each job.  In addition to the job
stats listed below, the characters each have individual bonuses to certain
statistics, which are listed in the second table below.

The Normal and Mimic statistics shown in the chart are before you master other
jobs.  Then for each statistic, the Normal and Mimic jobs will get the best of
all the jobs they've mastered.  If you're playing the SNES or Playstation
versions of the game, note that Monks have the best Strength and Vitality,
Thieves have the best Agility, and Summoners have the best Magic Power.  If
you're playing the Gameboy Advance version of the game (which has some extra
jobs), then Monks and Gladiators are tied for the best Strength, Thieves have
the best Agility, Monks have the highest Vitality, and Oracles have the best
Magic Power.  So if you want your Normal and Mimic jobs to have the best
statistics they can have then you should master those jobs.

--------------------------------------------------
               STATS PART 2 - MISC
--------------------------------------------------
Your Strength, Agility, Vitality, and Magic Power are determined by your job,
plus some abilities can increase them (as noted below), and some weapons and
armor have small bonuses to them.

Your Max HP is determined by your Level and Vitality (excluding equipment
bonuses to Vitality).

Your Max MP is determined by your Level and Magic Power (excluding equipment
bonuses to Magic Power).

Your Regen rate is determined by your Vitality.

Your Attack Power is determined by your weapon(s).

Your Defense, Evade Rate, Magic Defense, Magic Evade Rate, and Equipment's
Weight are determined by your armor.

The Bard's Songs; the Chemist's Drinks; the White Magic spells Armor and Shell;
the Blue Magic spells DrkShock and GuardOff; and the chemist mixes Dragon
Power, Sampson Power, and Split Shell affect their target's stats.

The amount of time you have to wait between turns is determined by your Agility
and your Equipment's Weight.

Some Status Effects affect stats (except the Hit Percentage of the Lillith Rod
and the Dancer's !Flirt ability).


--------------------------------------------------
          STATS PART 3 - HIT PERCENTAGES
--------------------------------------------------
Some attacks always hit their target.  For the rest:

The probability that a magic attack will hit the target successfully is
determined by the spell's Hit % and the target's Magic Evade Rate.  Magic
attacks (except attacks with the Rod, Fire Rod, Ice Rod, Thunder Rod, Venom
Rod, and Wizard Rod) become more likely to hit as the caster's Level increases,
and they become less likely to hit as the target's Level increases.  If the
target has an Aegis Shield, that gives them another chance to evade magic
attacks (except the Lillith Rod and the Dancer's !Flirt ability).

The probability that a physical attack will hit the target successfully is
determined by the attacker's weapon's Hit % and the target's Evade Rate.  If
the target has the Samurai's Evade ability, the knife Guardian, the accessory
Elf Cape, the knife Hardened, and/or the sword Defender, then those will each
give them another chance to evade physical attacks.  (Although equipping both
the knife Hardened and the sword Defender will only give you one extra chance
to evade physical attacks, not two.)  General Knives (except the ManEater),
Ninja Knives, Bows (except the Gale Bow and the AntiMagic Bow), and the
Beastkill Whip and the Dragon Whip halve the target's evade rate.

Some attacks are hybrid physical magic attacks.  The probability that they will
hit the target successfully is determined the same way as it is for regular
physical attacks.

Some enemies can't evade particular types of attacks.  See the Monsters section
for details.


--------------------------------------------------
           STATS PART 4 - ATTACK TYPES
--------------------------------------------------
The hybrid physical magic attacks are:  The Esper Chocob, the Esper Odin's
Gungnir attack, the Terrain attack Branch Arrow, the Terrain attack Branch
Spear, the Enemy Magic attack Reaper's Sword, and Gilgamesh's Jump attack.

Spells count as magic attacks.  (Except the Blue Magic spell GblinPnch, the
Enemy Magic spell Fight, and the Enemy Magic spell Strong Fight, which all
count as physical attack.  And except for the spells that are hybrid physical
magic attacks.)

Songs; Terrain attacks; the Hunter's Animals; the Chemist's Mixes; the
Dragoon's DrgnSwd ability; the Samurai's !Slash ability; the Dancer's !Flirt
ability; the Monk's Mantra ability; and the Dances Mystery Waltz, Jitterbug
Duet, and Tempting Tango all count as magic attacks.

The Monk's !Kick ability, the Ninja's !Throw ability, the Samurai's !GilToss
ability, and enemy specialty attacks all count as physical attacks.

Attacks with weapons count as physical attacks.  (Except attacks with any of
the following weapons:  Staves (except the Mythril Staff and the staff that is
just called Staff), Rods, Harps, Scrolls, the Drain Sword, the Giyaman Bell,
and the Tinker Bell.  Those all count as magic attacks.)


--------------------------------------------------
          STATS PART 5 - DAMAGE FORMULAS
--------------------------------------------------
The amount of damage that some magic attacks do is set, or a function of the
caster's or target's Current and/or Max HP.  For the rest:

Some enemies are weak or strong against particular elements, so that affects
how much damage attacks of that element do.  In addition to that:

The amount of damage that most magic attacks do is determined by the spell's
Attack Power, the caster's Level and Magic Power, and the target's Magic
Defense.

The amount of damage that a hybrid physical magic attacks does is determined by
the spell's Attack Power, the caster's Level and Magic Power, and the target's
Defense.

The amount of damage that a physical attack does is determined by a complicated
formula involving the attacker's Attack Power, Level, and Strength and the
target's Defense.  (Except the Samurai's !GilToss ability, which is only based
on the attacker's Level and the target's Defense.)  Different weapons have
different formulas, but if they have the same attack power, then they will
generally do about the same amount of damage, with the following exceptions:

1.  If there's a special effect to take into account, like being in the back
row, or using Magic Sword, etc..

2.  Bells, Axes, Hammers, the RuneEdge, the Flail, the MornStar, and some Rods
and Staves do dramatically different amounts of damage each time you use them.
All weapons vary a bit from round to round, but for most weapons it isn't a
very significant difference, and with these weapons it is.  The amount of
damage they do on average is about the same as most other weapons of equal
attack power, though.

3.  The RuneEdge, Rune Axe, and Rune Bell do damage based on your strength,
just like most weapons.  But the formula for the amount of damage they do has
an extra part based on your Magic Power.  This can result in these weapons
being incredibly powerful despite their mediocre attack power.  Although they
use up your Magic Points when you use them (you don't get their bonus damage if
you're out of Magic Points).

4.  The Chicken Knife, Giyaman Bell, Tinker Bell, and the Ninja's !Throw
ability do damage based on your strength or magic power (some weapons are based
on strength, and some are based on magic power), just like most weapons.  But
the formula for the amount of damage they do has an extra part based on your
Agility (except when you use the Ninja's !Throw ability with the Flame Scroll,
Water Scroll, or Thunder Scroll).  This can result in the Chicken Knife doing
even more damage than the BraveBld can.

5.  The formula for the damage done by all General Knives (except the
ManEater), Ninja Knives, Bows (except the AntiMagic Bow), Whips, the Full Moon,
and the RisinSun are also supposed to have an extra part based on your Agility.
This would result in them doing more damage than other weapons with the same
attack power.  But there was an error in the game's programming that lessened
the effect of this (the error didn't affect the Chicken Knife, Giyaman Bell,
Tinker Bell, and !Throw ability).  If you're playing the Super Nintendo version
of Final Fantasy 5 on your computer (with a ROM), then you can use a Hex Editor
to fix this error by changing the ROM's offsets 28313-28316 from A526C220 to
C220A526.

             STATS PART 6 - ABILITIES
--------------------------------------------------
Some abilities increase some of your stats to the level of the job that learned
them.  They are listed below.  For example, if one of your characters had the
job of White Mage, then you could increase that character's strength to the
level of a Monk by equipping the Monk's Brawl ability.  These abilities won't
have any effect if your character's stats are already higher than the ability
could make them.  (That is, they can only increase your stats; they won't lower
them.)  The list below does not include the bonus that the individual
characters have for certain statistics (listed above).

                      SECTION 08 - SUPER ENEMY STRATEGIES
*******************************************************************************

Note that normally you want to have a job at all times, so that when you win a
fight the ABP will go towards learning an ability.  But for the fights against
some of the Super Enemies you should be more worried about surviving than
gaining ABP.  So it might be good to switch your characters to the Normal or
Mimic Jobs.  That way they can use multiple abilities and use lots of different
weapons and armor (although the Mimic Job can't use as many different weapons
and armor as the Normal Job).  Make sure to remember to reequip your characters
with jobs and their regular equipment after the fight.

Remember that a job can use its own Innate Abilities even if they haven't yet
been learned for use with other jobs, and even if they aren't equipped.  And
the Normal and Mimic jobs can use the Innate Abilities of all the jobs they've
mastered without equipping them.  The Ninja's 2-Handed ability is innate, and
it's a very useful ability in these fights.

If you're playing the Playstation or Gameboy Advance versions of Final Fantasy
5, see the Monster Translations sections for a translation of the monster names
in this section.


1.  D.Chimera
Location:  The desert south of Karnak in world 1.  Later in the game it can
also be found in the Sunken Worus Tower and the Desert in the Cleft of
Dimension, although by that time it shouldn't really be considered a super
enemy.
Strategy:  You don't need a special strategy.  It's just a tough fight.


2.  MiniDragon
Location:  World map in the forests near Istory in world 1.
Strategy:  You don't need a special strategy.  It's just a tough fight.
Although note that like most bosses, MiniDragon is immune to most status
ailments.  But unlike most bosses, MiniDragon is not immune to Frog.


3.  Prototype
Location:  Two islands southwest of Crescent in world 1.  Later in the game it
can also be found in the Sunken Worus Tower and sometimes it can be found
inside one of the treasure chests in the Solitary Island Temple, although by
that time it shouldn't really be considered a super enemy.
Strategy:  The easiest way to kill Prototype is to use the Mediator's !Control
ability to get control of Prototype and have him attack himself.  But that's
not much of a challenge.  Here are some more interesting strategies:

Prototype has really strong defense, so it can be hard to do any damage to him.
But it's possible if you use an Axe or a Hammer.  When you use an Axe or
Hammer, the enemy's defense power has less of an effect than it does when you
use most other weapons.  When you use an Axe or Hammer, your own attack power
also has less of an effect than it does when you use most other weapons, so
usually those two things balance each other out.  But Axes and Hammers can be
really useful in this rare instance where you're fighting an enemy with really
strong defense.  You can buy Ogre Axes in Jacole, or if you want to take the
time to get them, you can win Doom Axes from the enemies called Crescent who
can be found on the island with the town Crescent.

Or you can use the Hunter's !X-Fight ability.  Or you can decrease his defense
with the Blue Magic spell GuardOff then attack him normally.  Or you can use
attacks that aren't affected by the enemy's defense (like the Blue Magic spells
Exploder, Vampire, and ????).  The Hunter's Animal Wild Boar will also damage
Prototype.

If you equip a Javelin (which you can steal from the enemy Sand Bear in the
Quicksand Desert), or the Earth Hammer (which you can steal from the boss
Titan, which you encounter after the Flying Lonka Ruins) then you can damage
him using the Sword Dance.  Or you can use the Ninja's !Throw ability to throw
a Shuriken, Flame Scroll, Water Scroll, or Thunder Scroll (which can all be
bought in Lix) or a Javelin or Earth Hammer at him.  You can damage him using
the Blue Magic spell GblinPnch if you use the Ninja's 2-Handed ability to equip
any of the following combinations of weapons:  the Earth Hammer and a Javelin,
the Earth Hammer and the Wind Spear (which you can steal from the boss
Chim.Brain, which you encounter after the Flying Lonka Ruins), the Earth Hammer
and a Doom Axe, the Earth Hammer and the Ancient Sword (which you can find in
the Flying Lonka Ruins), or two Javelins.  Even if you don't have any of those
combinations of weapons, GblinPnch can still damage him if you use the
Chemist's !Drink ability to drink some Power Drinks.  And GblinPnch does more
damage if the enemy and caster are the same level.  Prototype is level 23, so
if you're level 23 too then GblinPnch can damage him even if you aren't using
any of those combinations of weapons.

If you change Prototype's level so it's divisible by 5 (by dividing it twice
with the Blue Magic spell DrkShock), then you can kill it using the Blue Magic
spell L5 Doom.

There are some enemies who can be caught with the Mediator's !Catch command,
then will damage Prototype if you release them during during the fight against
Prototype.  Some of the most notable ones are that you can kill Prototype if
you release four of the enemy Sand Bear or four of the enemy Zuu.  Sand Bear
can be found in the Quicksand Desert and Zuu can be found on the plains near
Karnak and the Ancient Library.

If you encounter Prototype on a beach, then the Geomancer's !Terrain ability
Big Tsunami will sometimes cause some damage to Prototype (but not always).
That won't be an option if you aren't on a beach, though.

Or you can use the Blue Magic spell Blowfish, the Esper Titan, or the Chemist's
mixes Dark Potion, Drain Kiss, Explosive, or Shadow Flare.  Or you can decrease
his defense with the Chemist mix Split Shell.  Or you can attack him using the
Katana, which can be bought in Jacole.  It won't always work, but you can
sometimes get a critical hit if you use a Katana or just attack him with your
fists, and those can damage him.  If (and only if) your level is high enough
and you have the Monk's Brawl ability, then attacking Prototype with your fists
will damage him even when you don't get a critical hit.  If (and only if) your
level is high enough, then you can also damage Prototype by using the Samurai's
!Giltoss ability or the Monk's !Kick ability.  If your level isn't high enough,
then you can increase it with the Chemist mixes Dragon Power or Sampson Power.
Although you don't get the Chemist or Samurai jobs or have a chance to learn
Blowfish until you go to the Flying Lonka Ruins.  And you don't learn Titan
until after that.  Prototype is very tough, so you can wait until then to fight
him if you want.


4.  Garkimasra
Location:  Worus Castle Basement.  Later in the game it can also be found in
the Sunken Worus Tower, although by that time it shouldn't really be considered
a super enemy.
Strategy:  Same as the strategy for Prototype above.  Although Garkimasra
absorbs elemental damage, so some of the things that damage Prototype will heal
Garkimasra.  In particular, using the Ninja's !Throw ability to throw a Flame
Scroll, Water Scroll, or Thunder Scroll, or using the Mediator's !Catch command
to catch the enemy Zuu and releasing it during the fight against Garkimasra
will heal Garkimasra.

Garkimasra's defense is very strong, but it's not nearly as strong as
Prototype, so there are some attacks that will damage Garkimasra that wouldn't
damage Prototype.  Specifically you can damage him by just attacking normally
with a Javelin.  Or you could use the Sword Dance, the Ninja's !Throw ability,
or the Blue Magic spell GblinPnch even if you have some weapons that are weaker
than the ones required to damage Prototype.  Although you'll still need to use
the Ninja's 2-Handed ability to equip two weapons before you use the Blue Magic
spell GblinPnch.  Or if you're Berserked, you can damage him with a lot of weak
weapons.  Or you could use the Blue Magic spell AquaRake.  The Esper Chocob
will sometimes use the attack Fat Chocobo, and that will damage Garkimasra.
The Hunter's Animal Bee Swarm will sometimes damage Garkimasra (but not always).

Note that Garkimasra is level 20, so GblinPnch will do more damage if you're on
level 20 too.  And you can kill Garkimasra with the Blue Magic spell L5 Doom
without having to change his level at all.

Garkimasra's HP is lower than Prototype's, so to kill Garkimasra you only have
to catch one Sand Bear and release it, rather than four.  And there are some
enemies that wouldn't be able to kill Prototype (although some of them might
damage him), but will kill Garkimasra if you catch them and release them.  One
notable one is the enemy Goblin.  The Goblin can be found near the Pirates'
Cave, and it casts a strong Black Magic spell called Flare when you catch and
release it.

If you want to fight Garkimasra when you first get to Worus Castle, before
you've been to Jacole, then note that you can buy Battle Axes in Worus.
They're not as strong as Ogre Axes or Doom Axes, but they're the best you can
get at the time.


5.  Skull Eater
Location:  Jacole Cave in world 1.  You can fight it in world 3 too, although
by that time it shouldn't really be considered a super enemy.
Strategy:  Same as the strategy for Prototype above.  Although in addition to
strong defense, Skull Eater also has a high Evade rate, so it might take you
several tries before you hit him.  You can get around that by using the
Hunter's !Aim or !X-Fight abilities or the Dragoon's !Jump ability.

Skull Eater's defense is very strong, but it's not quite as strong as
Prototype, so there are some attacks that will damage Skull Eater that wouldn't
damage Prototype.  Specifically you can damage him using the Sword Dance, the
Ninja's !Throw ability, or the Blue Magic spell GblinPnch even if you have some
weapons that are slightly weaker than the ones required to damage Prototype.
Although you'll still need to use the Ninja's 2-Handed ability to equip two
weapons before you use the Blue Magic spell GblinPnch.  The Hunter's Animal Bee
Swarm will sometimes damage Skull Eater (but not always).

Note that Skull Eater's is level 32, so GblinPnch will do more damage if you're
on level 32 too.  And before you can kill Skull Eater using the Blue Magic
spell L5 Doom, you can change its level so it's divisible by 5 by giving it the
Chemist mix Sampson Power then dividing its level twice with the Blue Magic
spell DrkShock.  Or you could change its level so it's divisible by 5 by giving
it a bunch of Sampson Powers and/or Dragon Powers, until its level hits the
maximum of 255.

Skull Eater's HP is lower than Prototype's, so to kill Skull Eater you only
have to catch one Sand Bear or Zuu and release it, rather than four.  And there
are some enemies that wouldn't be able to kill Prototype (although some of them
might damage him), but will kill Skull Eater if you catch them and release
them.  Notable among them are the enemies Goblin and MiniDragon.  The Goblin
can be found near the Pirates' Cave, and it casts a strong Black Magic spell
called Flare when you catch and release it.  The MiniDragon can be found near
Istory, and it casts a strong offensive White Magic spell called Holy when you
catch and release it.

The Geomancer's !Terrain ability can sometimes kill Skull Eater (but not
always).

Unlike Prototype, Skull Eater might be susceptible to instant death attacks and
spells that will give it status ailments like Mini, Frog, and Charm, although
its magic evade rate is very high, so they're unlikely to work.

If you really want a challenge, try casting a spell on Skull Eater, and that
will cause it to call four more Skull Eaters to help it fight you.  The spell
has to hit it in order to cause it to call four more Skull Eaters, and it has a
high Magic Evade rate too, so make sure to use a spell that will always hit
(like Fire).


6.  ShieldDrgn
Location:  The Sealed Castle Kuzar in world 2.  You can fight it in world 3
too, although by that time it shouldn't really be considered a super enemy.
Strategy:  A special strategy is not absolutely necessary with the ShieldDrgn,
but it's a very tough fight at the point in the game when it first becomes
available.  It has a wall that reflects spells, its HP is very high, and its
defense is fairly high, but its defense is low enough that there are still
several weapons available at that point in the game that can hurt it.  The
ShieldDrgn attempts to Charm your characters.  You will be immune to Charm if
you're using the Berserker's Berserk ability (or if you have the job of
Berserker, which automatically has the Berserk ability).  You will also be
immune to Charm if you have the helmet Tiara, which could be stolen from the
enemy Lamia which could be found in the Lonka Ruins.  The easiest way to defeat
the ShieldDrgn is to use the Mediator's !Control ability and make it kill
itself with its Flame attack.  In most cases ShieldDrgn will leave the battle
when its HP gets low, although if you make it kill itself with its Flame attack
it won't leave the battle until it dies.


7.  Sand Crawl
Location:  The desert in the northeast in world 2.
Strategy:  You don't need a special strategy.  It's just a tough fight.


8.  Gil Turtle
Location:  In the cave between Castle Bal and Exdeath's Castle in world 2.  At
the end of the hidden path that branches off to the south (it's just after the
first set of stairs).  You can fight it in the Bonus Dungeon too, although by
that time it shouldn't really be considered a super enemy.
Strategy:  The Gil Turtle is weak against Ice, so the best way to hurt him is
to attack him with the Black Magic spell Ice 3, or cast the Magic Sword spell
Ice 3, then attack him (make sure you're using a weapon that will work with
Magic Sword).  You can use the Red Mage's !X-Magic ability to cast Ice 3 two
times in one turn.  If you're going to have some characters just cast spells
and not attack, you should put them in the back row and equip them with Ice
Rods (which increase the damage that Ice spells do).  For those characters who
will be attacking, their attacks will be even more effective if you use the
Hunter's !X-Fight ability and/or the Ninja's 2-Handed ability.

If you haven't learned the level 5 !Black ability or the level 5 !MgcSwrd
ability yet, you'll have to be a Black Mage or Mystic Knight, respectively, in
order to use those abilities.  If you don't have the Ninja's 2-Handed ability,
then you can use the Knight's Dbl Grip ability or make your characters Ninjas,
since Ninjas can use the 2-Handed ability automatically.  Although if you do
that, then you won't be able to also use both !MgcSwrd and !X-Fight.

Before the fight cast the Dimen Magic spell Float on your party.  During the
fight you can protect your party from some of the Gil Turtle's attacks with the
Esper Golem, but it'll wear off after awhile, so you might have to summon him
several times.  Heal yourself as necessary during the fight, and you can cast
the Dimen Magic spell Hast2 to speed up your characters.  If you're too weak to
beat him, you might have to spend some time fighting enemies to increase your
level and gain new abilities.


9.  Magic Pot
Location:  Inside pots in the Phoenix Tower.
Strategy:  You can win the fight by just giving them an Elixir (sometimes it
takes more than one), which will cause them to leave the fight on their own.
Although if you want, you can try to actually beat the Magic Pots in a fight.
They have very high defense and very high HP and they periodically refill
themselves to full HP, so you have to do a lot of damage to them very quickly,
before they have a chance to refill their HP.

You can do the most damage to them by using the Hunter's !X-Fight ability (it
cuts through an enemy's defense).  The Mystic Knight's !MgcSword ability and
the Bard's !Sing ability won't work in the fights against the Magic Pots, so
you can't use them to increase the amount of damage you can do.  But you can
use the Ninja's 2-Handed ability and the Chemist's !Drink ability.  Have your
characters all drink a bunch of Hero Drinks (a bunch) before attacking.


10.  Gogo
Location:  Boss of the Sunken Worus Tower.
Strategy:  If you don't do anything, Gogo will give up after a few minutes and
you'll win the fight.  Although if you want, you can try to actually beat Gogo
in a fight.  He's a Mimic.  If you never attack him, then he won't attack you.
But if you attack him physically, he'll respond with an overwhelming physical
attack.  And if you attack him with magic, he'll respond with an overwhelming
magic attack.  And after you've done a fair amount of damage to him, he'll
attack over and over again, overwhelmingly, even if you stop attacking.

You can do the most damage to him by using the Hunter's !X-Fight ability when
you're using the Ninja's 2-Handed ability.  The fact that Gogo won't attack you
at the beginning of the fight unless you attack him first means that you can
take some time to prepare before you attack him.  You could cast the Magic
Sword spell Flare (in which case you should make sure your weapons work with
Magic Sword), or you could build up your characters' stats using the Bard's
!Sing ability (Hero Song works well).  Although you don't have too much time to
build up strength, because Gogo will give up after a little less than two
minutes of your not attacking him.  If you don't have the Bard's !Sing ability,
you could use the Chemist's !Drink ability instead (several Hero Drinks for
each character works well).  You can also take time to heal your characters
after your first few attacks, before you've done enough damage to Gogo that he
starts attacking over and over again on his own.

It might help to cast the Dimen Magic spell Hast2 on your party, and either
both the White Magic spells Shell and Armor or just the Blue Magic spell
MghtyGrd.  Although if you equip those abilities on someone, then there will be
less room for other abilities.

Note that like most bosses, Gogo is immune to most status ailments.  But unlike
most bosses, Gogo is not immune to Mute.  The White Magic spell Mute doesn't
always work, and Gogo's Magic Evade rate is very high, so that makes it even
less likely to work.  But if you use the Mystic Knight's Magic Sword spell
Mute, then hit him, that will always Mute him.  Then you can attack him with
magic without worrying about his counterattacks.  He'll still be able to cast
some of his spells (since some spells aren't stopped by Mute), but it'll stop
some of his spells.  Note that if you are going to Mute him then attack him
with magic, you should not use the Ninja's 2-Handed ability.  Using it would
cause Gogo to counterattack twice when you attack him in order to Mute him.


11.  Omega
Location:  Visibly walking around in the Cave in the Cleft of Dimension.
Strategy:  Flame Rings can help defend your party from some of his attacks.
You can leave the Cleft of Dimension and buy them in Mirage, or you can steal
them from Red Dragon in the Castle section of the Cleft of Dimension that's
ahead.

Omega is weak against thunder, so you can do the most damage to him by casting
the Magic Sword spell Bolt 3, then using the Hunter's !X-Fight ability when
you're using the Ninja's 2-Handed ability (make sure both of your weapons work
with Magic Sword).  If one of your characters has those abilities but another
doesn't, you could have the second character Mimic the first one.

Note that like most bosses, Omega is immune to most status ailments.  But
unlike most bosses, Omega is not immune to Stop.  Omega's Magic Evade rate is
very high, so casting the Dimen Magic spell Stop is unlikely to work on him.
And normally the Love Song doesn't always work either, but Omega has a weakness
for the Love Song, so it will always work.  Although Omega's level is so high
that it only works on him for a very small period of time, so in order to keep
him stopped, you'll have to have two characters with the haste status
constantly using the Love Song.


12.  Shinryuu
Location:  Inside a treasure chest in the Void at the end of the Cleft of
Dimension.
Strategy:  You can steal the Dragoon Spear from the enemy named CrysDragon in
the first and third areas of the Void.  It's a very powerful weapon, and it's
strong against Dragons, so getting Dragoon Spears for your characters to use
against Shinryuu is very effective.  You can do the most damage to him by using
the Dragoon's !Jump ability or the Hunter's !X-Fight ability (either one, but
not both) when you're using the Ninja's 2-Handed ability to use two Dragoon
Spears.

Most of Shinryuu's attacks can be avoided.  If you equip a Coral Ring, you can
avoid Shinryuu's Tidal Wave and Atomic Ray attacks.  If you equip the Bone
Mail, you can avoid Shinryuu's Poison Breath and Roulette attacks.  If you
equip a Ribbon, you can avoid Shinryuu's Demon's Eye attack.  If you equip an
Ice Shield, you can avoid Shinryuu's Snowstorm attacks.  If you aren't at a
level that is divisible by 2, you can avoid Shinryuu's L2 Old attack.  If you
aren't at a level that is divisible by 3, you can avoid Shinryuu's L3 Flare
attack.  And if you're initially on an inconvenient level, you can change your
level by giving your character the Chemist mix Dragon Power or Sampson Power.
If you give your character the Chemist mix Dragon's Kiss, you can avoid
Shinryuu's Maelstrom attack.  And if you periodically use the Ninja's !Image
ability or use the White Magic spell Image, you can avoid Shinryuu's fight
attack.  All that leaves is Shinryuu's Thunder attack, and that only takes off
25% of your Max HP (or 50% if you're weak to Thunder attacks), so it can never
kill you if you're at full HP.  Although of all of those, the Coral Ring is the
most important, since Shinryuu's Tidal Wave attack is his strongest attack.
You can leave the Cleft of Dimension and buy Coral Rings in Mirage, or you can
steal them from Bella Donna in the Phoenix Tower.

Note that like most bosses, Shinryuu is immune to most status ailments.  But
unlike most bosses, Shinryuu is not immune to Berserk and Darkness.  So you can
use the White Magic spell Bersk to stop him from casting magic if you want.
Shinryuu's Magic Evade rate is very high, so casting the Blue Magic spell Flash
or using the Chemist Mix Dark Gas is unlikely to successfully give him the
Darkness status.  But the Chemist Mix Dark Sigh always works, so you can use
that to give him the Darkness status.

*******************************************************************************

If you're playing the Playstation or Gameboy Advance versions of Final Fantasy
5, see the Location Translations and Monster Translations sections for
translations of the locations and monster names in this section.

This guide doesn't list the prices of all the weapons.  For that I recommend
J.L. Tseng's (a.k.a. InstructorTrepe's) FFV Algorithms and Stats FAQ.  It can
be found on the page for the SNES version of Final Fantasy 5 at
www.gamefaqs.com.

This guide also doesn't say from which enemies you can steal or win weapons
(except in a few especially noteworthy cases).  For additional information on
that topic, see the Monster Section.  Also note that some enemies have two
different things that you might be able to steal, with one being easier to
steal than the other.  So if you keep stealing from an enemy and getting an
item other than the one you want, keep trying (you can cast the Dimen Magic
spell Reset to get another chance).

Some weapons can sometimes cast spells or trigger commands.  That occurs only
when using the Fight, Aim, or SwdSlap commands.  It will never occur when using
the BuildUp, Capture, Jump, Throw, or X-Fight commands; the Sword Dance; or the
Blue Magic spell GblinPnch.  If your characters have the Zombie status, or if
they use the Counter ability, then their weapons can cast spells, but they
won't trigger commands.  Note that the Earth Hammer's Quake spell, the Earth
Bell's Quake spell, and the Air Blade's Gale Cut spell all count as commands,
not as spells.

Note that the normal job can equip all weapons and armor (except throwing
weapons).

WEAPONS
(The code for hacking is listed first, then the weapon, then the attack power,
then the location and special effect (if any))

Fists display an attack power of 3, but their attack power increases as your
level increases.  Fists have an 8% chance of having a Critical Hit.

                        Magic spell GblinPnch.  Note that the Chicken Knife
                        does damage based on your strength, just like most
                        weapons.  But the formula for the amount of damage it
                        does has an extra part based on your Agility, which can
                        result in it doing even more damage than the BraveBld

                                      spell GblinPnch, it does as much damage
                                      as a normal weapon with an attack power
                                      of 53.  Falsely claims to have an attack
                                      power of 53 in general.

                              SECTION 11 - ARMOR
*******************************************************************************

If you're playing the Playstation or Gameboy Advance versions of Final Fantasy
5, see the Location Translations and Monster Translations sections for
translations of the locations and monster names in this section.

This guide doesn't list the prices or weight of all the armor.  For that I
recommend J.L. Tseng's (a.k.a. InstructorTrepe's) FFV Algorithms and Stats FAQ.
It can be found on the page for the SNES version of Final Fantasy 5 at
www.gamefaqs.com.

This guide also doesn't say from which enemies you can steal or win armor
(except in a few especially noteworthy cases).  For additional information on
that topic, see the Monster Section.  Also note that some enemies have two
different things that you might be able to steal, with one being easier to
steal than the other.  So if you keep stealing from an enemy and getting an
item other than the one you want, keep trying (you can cast the Dimen Magic
spell Reset to get another chance).

SHIELDS
Shields can be equipped by Knights, Dragoons, Samurais, Berserkers, Mystic
Knights, Blue Mages, Cannoneers, Gladiators, and Mimics.
(The code for hacking is listed first, then the shield, then its defense power,
then its evade rate, then its magic defense, then its magic evade rate, then
the location and special effect (if any))

                                     But its other stats give it some
                                     advantage.

If you're playing the Playstation or Gameboy Advance versions of Final Fantasy
5, see the Location Translations section for translations of the locations in
this section.

This guide doesn't list the prices of all the items and drinks.  For that I
recommend J.L. Tseng's (a.k.a. InstructorTrepe's) FFV Algorithms and Stats FAQ.
It can be found on the page for the SNES version of Final Fantasy 5 at
www.gamefaqs.com.

This guide doesn't say from which enemies you can steal or win items and drinks
(except in a few especially noteworthy cases).  For additional information on
that topic, see the Monster Section.

                           SECTION 15 - BLACK MAGIC
*******************************************************************************

This section describes the magic used with the Black Mage's !Black ability and
the Red Mage's !Red ability.  All Black Magic spells except Drain and Psych are
reflected by Walls.

Many Black Magic spells can be used on one enemy or all enemies.  Their effect
will be stronger if you just use them on one enemy.  If you cast a spell on all
four of your characters and it reflects back at the enemy (because of the White
Magic spell Wall or the Esper Crbnkl), then that will make its effect stronger.

If you're playing the Playstation or Gameboy Advance versions of Final Fantasy
5, see the Location Translations section for translations of the locations in
this section.

*******************************************************************************

This section describes the magic used with the Mystic Knight's !MgcSwrd
ability.  Sword Magic spells can not be reflected by Walls.

Sword Magic is based on Black Magic (except the Black Magic spells Toad and
Doom) plus the White Magic spells Mute and Holy.  You gain a Sword Magic spell
automatically when you get the equivalent Black (or White) Magic spell.  Sword
Magic wears off when the fight is over, and will only work with some weapons
(see the Weapons section for a list of which ones).  See the Weapons section
for information on which weapons are Magic Sword OK.  Note that the elemental
Sword Magic spells will only help with enemies who are weak to their element.

but it doesn't work in the Gameboy Advance version.  I'm not sure about the
Playstation version.)  And you won't be able to get Shoat or Crbnkl after you
leave world 2.  Ramuh won't be in the same place after you leave world 1, but
you'll be able to find him again somewhere else.  You might suspect that Shiva,
Shoat, and Crbnkl could be found in the same place that Ramuh can be found, but
I've checked into it, and I'm sure that they can't, so don't waste time trying.

If you're playing the Playstation or Gameboy Advance versions of Final Fantasy
5, see the Location Translations section for translations of the locations in
this section.

(The spell is listed first, then that spell's level, then the MP, then the
cost, then the location and effect)

                     Chocobo Kick which damages one enemy and doesn't always

                     all enemies and does even more damage.

                     Castle in the Cleft of Dimension (after you area where you
                     fight Catastroph and before the area where you fight
                     Halicarnaso).  Effect:  Thunder damage to all enemies.

Odin    4  48     NA Found in Castle Bal in world 3.  Effect:  Sometimes uses
                     the attack True Edge which kills all enemies.  Sometimes
                     uses the attack Gungnir which damages one enemy at random.
                     If you summon Odin using the !Summon or !Conjure commands,
                     then it will always use the attack Gungnir in battles with
                     at least one boss.  But if you summon Odin using the
                     MagicLamp, then it will always use the attack True Edge.

                     enemies.  Revives one of your characters with full HP and

*******************************************************************************
                     SECTION 20 - BLUE MAGIC ALL LOCATIONS
*******************************************************************************

This section lists all the monsters from which you can learn each Blue Magic
spell, in chronological order.  Note that Sections 21-23 (Blue Magic First
Locations) list the first place you can learn each spell, and it specifies what
you need to do to get the monster to cast the spell on you.  And if you get to
the end of the game and realize you missed a spell, Section 24 (Blue Magic Late
Locations) lists a place that you can still learn each spell, and it also
specifies what you need to do to get the monster to cast the spell on you.

Some monsters will only cast a Blue Magic spell when you control them, or in
reaction to a certain action you take (like attacking them or casting a certain
spell on them), or under certain conditions (like if they're alone or if their
HP is at a certain level).  And sometimes the monster will only cast the spell
on themself or another monster, in which case you need to cast a Wall on them
so the spell will bounce off of them onto you.  I've noted those conditions in
brackets after the monster's name.  Note that if a monster doesn't have enough
MP to cast the spell, you may have to give them an Ether.

I note that you must control some enemies to get them to cast a spell.  If you
don't want to control them, charming a monster may result in it doing something
that you would otherwise have to control it to get it to do.  Although some
monsters can't be charmed.  And if you charm monsters, they will cast damaging
Blue Magic spells on the monsters rather than on you.  You can reflect some of
the Blue Magic spells onto your characters by putting a wall on the monster,
but some of the spells can't be reflected.

If you're playing the Playstation or Gameboy Advance versions of Final Fantasy
5, see the Blue Magic Translations and Monster Translations sections for
translations of the Blue Magic spells and monster names in this section.

*******************************************************************************
          SECTION 21 - BLUE MAGIC FIRST LOCATIONS (SNES TRANSLATION)
*******************************************************************************

This is a list of the first place that each blue magic spell can be found, in
chronological order (and the second place for some spells that can be hard to
get the first time around).  You can't go back to the same place and get some
spells if you miss them on your first chance.  See Section 24 (Blue Magic Late
Locations) below for a place that each blue magic spell can still be found late
in the game.  See Section 20 (Blue Magic All Locations) for a list of all the
monsters from which you can learn each spell.

I note that you must control some enemies to get them to cast a spell.  If you
don't want to control them, charming a monster may result in it doing something
that you would otherwise have to control it to get it to do.  Although some
monsters can't be charmed.  And if you charm monsters, they will cast damaging
Blue Magic spells on the monsters rather than on you.  You can reflect some of
the Blue Magic spells onto your characters by putting a wall on the monster,
but some of the spells can't be reflected.

You can learn Vampire from the enemy Steel Bat which can be found in the Pirate
Cave.

You can learn GblinPnch from the enemy Black Goblin which can be found in the
Wind Shrine.

You can learn Aero from the enemy Mold Wind which can be found in the Wind
Shrine.

You can learn Flash from the enemy Blocks which can be found in the North
Mountain.  (Note:  You must use an Ether on Blocks.)  If you don't want to use
an Ether, then your first chance to learn Flash without using an Ether is from
the enemy Crew Dust which can be found in the Steamship.  (Note:  The Crew Dust
will only use Flash when it's alone, so you have to kill all the other monsters
with it first.)

You can learn FrogSong from the enemy Elf Toad which can be found in the
Waterfall behind Worus Castle or in Worus Tower.  (Note:  The Elf Toad will
only use FrogSong when it's alone, so you have to kill all the other monsters
with it first.)

You can learn MoonFlut from the enemy Garkimasra which can be found in the
Worus Castle Basement.  (Note:  He won't cast it if you leave him alone, but
sometimes he'll cast it in response to your damaging him.)  If you don't want
to fight Garkimasra, then your next chance to learn MoonFlut is from the enemy
Page 256 which can be found in the Ancient Library.

You can learn ???? from the enemy Wild Nack which can be found in the forests
near Karnak in World 1.

You can learn Fusion from the enemy Carcurser which can be found in the Ship
Graveyard.  (Note:  You must cast Charm on Carcurser, which means that you
won't be able to learn this until you've already been to Karnak where you can
buy the White Magic spell Charm.)  If you don't want to go back to the Ship
Graveyard from Karnak, then your next chance to get it is from the enemy
Mithril Drgn which can be found in the forests near the Ancient Library in
World 1.  (Note:  You must control the Mithril Drgn.)

You can learn Exploder from the enemy Motor Trap.  Motor Traps appear after you
win a fight in which the enemy Defeater is the last enemy you kill.  Defeaters
can be found in the Steamship.  (Note:  You must cast Bolt on Motor Trap or hit
it with a Thunder Rod.)

You can learn Aero 2 from the enemy Gigas which can be found inside treasure
chests in Karnak Castle.  If you miss it there, then your next chance to get it
is from the enemy Page 32 which can be found in the Ancient Library.

You can learn DethClaw from the enemy Iron Claw, the boss of Karnak Castle.  If
you miss it there, then your next chance to get it is from the enemy Torrent
which can be found on the plains and in the forests near Exdeath's Castle.

You can learn Missile from the enemy Motor Trap.  Motor Traps appear after you
win a fight in which the enemy Defeater is the last enemy you kill.  Defeaters
can be found in the Steamship.  (Note:  You must control the Motor Trap, which
means that you won't be able to learn this until you've already been through
the Steamship once and gotten additional jobs from the Fire Crystal.)

You can learn AquaRake from the enemy D.Chimera which can be found in the
desert south of Karnak in world 1.

You can learn L5 Doom from the enemy Page 64 which can be found in the Ancient
Library.  (Note:  This spell only works on characters who are at a level that
is a multiple of 5 (for example, 5, 10, 15, 20, and so on).  Make sure you have
at least one character in your party who is not at a level that is a multiple
of 5 when you have this cast on you, otherwise it'll kill you all.)

You can learn GuardOff from the enemy Page 256 which can be found in the
Ancient Library.  (Note:  You must control it.)

You can learn Hammer from the enemy Byblos which can be found in the Ancient
Library.  If you miss it there, then your next chance to get it is from the
enemy Drippy which can be found in Hiryuu Valley.

You can learn DrkShock from the enemy BlackFlame which can be found on Crescent
Island in world 1.

You can learn Emission from the enemy Prototype which can be found two islands
southwest of Crescent in world 1.  If you don't want to fight Prototype, then
your next chance to learn Emission is from the enemy Flamegun which guards the
entrance to the Lonka Ruins.

You can learn Blowfish from the enemy Lamia which can be found in the Lonka
Ruins.  (Note:  You must control it.)

You can learn WhiteWind from the enemy Whirl Demon which can be found in the
Lonka Ruins in world 1.  (Note:  You must control them.)

You can learn L4 Qrter from the enemy Hydra which can be found in the Lonka
Ruins, in the room with King Tycoon.  Hydra casts L4 Qrter when you kill it.
(Note:  This spell only works on characters who are at a level that is a
multiple of 4 (for example, 4, 8, 12, 16, and so on).)

You can learn L3 Flare from the enemy Red Dragon which can somtimes be found
inside treasure chests in the Barrier Tower and can be randomly encountered in
Exdeath's Castle after Kelgar transforms it.  (Note:  You must control it, and
even then it will only cast it on itself, so you have to cast a Wall on it so
L3 Flare will reflect off of it and onto you.  You can't get the White Magic
spell Wall until after the Barrier Tower, so if you want to learn L3 Flare in
the Barrier Tower, you'll have to use the Chemist's !Combine ability to make a
Dragon Armor (combine a PhenixDwn and a DragnFang), which casts Wall.  Or you
could use the Mediator's !Catch ability to catch the enemy Neon (which is
randomly encountered in the Barrier Tower) and release it during your fight
against the Red Dragon.  You'll have to release at least two Neons, since
releasing the first one will cast Wall on you rather than the Red Dragon, then
the second Neon's Wall might bounce off the first Neon's Wall and hit the Red
Dragon (or it might cast Wall on one of your other characters).  Also note that
this spell only works on characters who are at a level that is a multiple of 3
(for example, 3, 6, 9, 12, and so on).)

You can learn L2 Old from the enemy Tricker which can be found in the Barrier
Tower.  (Note:  You must control it, and even then it will only cast it on
itself, so you have to cast a Wall on it so L2 Old will reflect off of it and
onto you.  You can't get the White Magic spell Wall until after the Barrier
Tower, so if you want to learn L2 Old in the Barrier Tower, you'll have to use
the Chemist's !Combine ability to make a Dragon Armor (combine a PhenixDwn and
a DragnFang), which casts Wall.  Or you could use the Mediator's !Catch ability
to catch the enemy Neon (which is randomly encountered in the Barrier Tower)
and release it during your fight against the Tricker.  You'll have to release
at least two Neons, since releasing the first one will cast Wall on you rather
than the Tricker, then the second Neon's Wall might bounce off the first Neon's
Wall and hit the Tricker (or it might cast Wall on one of your other
characters).  Also note that this spell only works on characters who are at a
level that is a multiple of 2 (for example, 2, 4, 6, 8, and so on).)  If you
don't want to try to learn it from Tricker, then your next chance to learn L2
Old is from the enemy Magic Drgn which can be found in Exdeath's Castle after
Kelgar transforms it.

You can learn Time Slip from the enemy Traveler which can be found in the
Barrier Tower.

You can learn Aero 3 from the enemy Metamorpha that changes into Whirl Demon
which can be found in Guido's Cave.  Note that there are a few different types
of Metamorpha, and some of them won't turn into Whirl Demon.  The one that can
turn into Whirl Demon can only turn into Whirl Demon, Ifrit, or Wyvern.  So if
you're fighting a Metamorpha that turns into something else, then it's not the
one that will turn into Whirl Demon.

You can learn TinySong from the enemy MiniMage which can be found in the Great
Forest of Mua.

You can learn Condemn from the enemy Exdeath, the boss of Exdeath's Castle.  If
you miss it there, then your next chance to get it is from the enemy Cursed One
which can be found in treasure chests in the Pyramid and can be randomly
encountered in the Solitary Island Temple. (Note:  You must control the Cursed
One and give them an Ether.)

       SECTION 22 - BLUE MAGIC FIRST LOCATIONS (PLAYSTATION TRANSLATION)
*******************************************************************************

This is a list of the first place that each blue magic spell can be found, in
chronological order (and the second place for some spells that can be hard to
get the first time around).  You can't go back to the same place and get some
spells if you miss them on your first chance.  See Section 24 (Blue Magic Late
Locations) below for a place that each blue magic spell can still be found late
in the game.  See Section 20 (Blue Magic All Locations) for a list of all the
monsters from which you can learn each spell.

I note that you must control some enemies to get them to cast a spell.  If you
don't want to control them, muddling a monster may result in it doing something
that you would otherwise have to control it to get it to do.  Although some
monsters can't be muddled.  And if you muddle monsters, they will cast damaging
Blue Magic spells on the monsters rather than on you.  You can reflect some of
the Blue Magic spells onto your characters by putting a wall on the monster,
but some of the spells can't be reflected.

You can learn Red Feast from the enemy Steel Bat which can be found in the
Pirate Cave.

You can learn GobPunch from the enemy BlakGoblin which can be found in the Wind
Shrine.

You can learn Aero from the enemy Mauldwin which can be found in the Wind
Shrine.

You can learn Flash from the enemy Stone which can be found in the North
Mountain.  (Note:  You must use an Ether on Stone.)  If you don't want to use
an Ether, then your first chance to learn Flash without using an Ether is from
the enemy Cool Dust which can be found in the Fire Ship.  (Note:  The Cool Dust
will only use Flash when it's alone, so you have to kill all the other monsters
with it first.)

You can learn ToadSong from the enemy Elf Toad which can be found in the
Waterfall behind Walz Castle or in Walz Tower.  (Note:  The Elf Toad will only
use ToadSong when it's alone, so you have to kill all the other monsters with
it first.)

You can learn MoonFlut from the enemy Harpy which can be found in the Walz
Castle Basement.  (Note:  He won't cast it if you leave him alone, but
sometimes he'll cast it in response to your damaging him.)  If you don't want
to fight Harpy, then your next chance to learn MoonFlut is from the enemy Page
256 which can be found in the Library of Ancients.

You can learn ???? from the enemy Wild Dog which can be found in the forests
near Karnak in World 1.

You can learn Pep Up from the enemy CrystSlugs which can be found in the Ship
Graveyard.  (Note:  You must cast Muddle on CrystSlugs, which means that you
won't be able to learn this until you've already been to Karnak where you can
buy the White Magic spell Muddle.)  If you don't want to go back to the Ship
Graveyard from Karnak, then your next chance to get it is from the enemy
MithrlDrgn which can be found in the forests near the Library of Ancients in
World 1.  (Note:  You must control the MithrlDrgn.)

You can learn Exploder from the enemy Mottletrap.  Mottletraps appear after you
win a fight in which the enemy Defeater is the last enemy you kill.  Defeaters
can be found in the Fire Ship.  (Note:  You must cast Bolt on Mottletrap or hit
it with a LightningRod.)

You can learn Aero 2 from the enemy Gigas which can be found inside treasure
chests in Karnak Castle.  If you miss it there, then your next chance to get it
is from the enemy Page 32 which can be found in the Library of Ancients.

You can learn DoomClaw from the enemy Iron Claw, the boss of Karnak Castle.  If
you miss it there, then your next chance to get it is from the enemy Trent
which can be found on the plains and in the forests near X-Death's Castle.

You can learn Missile from the enemy Mottletrap.  Mottletraps appear after you
win a fight in which the enemy Defeater is the last enemy you kill.  Defeaters
can be found in the Fire Ship.  (Note:  You must control the Mottletrap, which
means that you won't be able to learn this until you've already been through
the Fire Ship once and gotten additional jobs from the Fire Crystal.)

You can learn AquaRake from the enemy Quadrharpy which can be found in the
desert south of Karnak in world 1.

You can learn L5 Doom from the enemy Page 64 which can be found in the Library
of Ancients.  (Note:  This spell only works on characters who are at a level
that is a multiple of 5 (for example, 5, 10, 15, 20, and so on).  Make sure you
have at least one character in your party who is not at a level that is a
multiple of 5 when you have this cast on you, otherwise it'll kill you all.)

You can learn GuardOff from the enemy Page 256 which can be found in the
Library of Ancients.  (Note:  You must control it.)

You can learn MagHammr from the enemy Byblos which can be found in the Library

You can learn BlakShock from the enemy BlackFlame which can be found on
Crescent Island in world 1.

You can learn Burn Ray from the enemy Prototype which can be found two islands
southwest of Crescent in world 1.  If you don't want to fight Prototype, then

Ruins.  (Note:  You must control it.)

(Note:  This spell only works on characters who are at a level that is a

You can learn L3 Flare from the enemy Red Dragon which can somtimes be found
inside treasure chests in the Shield Generator and can be randomly encountered
in X-Death's Castle after Kelgar transforms it.  (Note:  You must control it,
and even then it will only cast it on itself, so you have to cast Rflect on it
so L3 Flare will reflect off of it and onto you.  You can't get the White Magic
spell Rflect until after the Shield Generator, so if you want to learn L3 Flare
in the Shield Generator, you'll have to use the Chemist's !Mix ability to make
a Dragon Armor (mix a Phoenix Down and a Dragon Fang), which casts Rflect.  Or
you could use the Trainer's !Catch ability to catch the enemy Neon (which is
randomly encountered in the Barrier Tower) and release it during your fight
against the Red Dragon.  You'll have to release at least two Neons, since
releasing the first one will cast Rflect on you rather than the Red Dragon,
then the second Neon's Rflect might bounce off the first Neon's Rflect and hit
the Red Dragon (or it might cast Rflect on one of your other characters).  Also
note that this spell only works on characters who are at a level that is a
multiple of 3 (for example, 3, 6, 9, 12, and so on).)

You can learn L2 Old from the enemy Tripper which can be found in the Shield
Generator.  (Note:  You must control it, and even then it will only cast it on
itself, so you have to cast Rflect on it so L2 Old will reflect off of it and
onto you.  You can't get the White Magic spell Rflect until after the Shield
Generator, so if you want to learn L2 Old in the Shield Generator, you'll have
to use the Chemist's !Mix ability to make a Dragon Armor (mix a Phoenix Down
and a Dragon Fang), which casts Rflect.  Or you could use the Trainer's !Catch
ability to catch the enemy Neon (which is randomly encountered in the Shield
Generator) and release it during your fight against the Tripper.  You'll have
to release at least two Neons, since releasing the first one will cast Rflect
on you rather than the Tripper, then the second Neon's Rflect might bounce off
the first Neon's Rflect and hit the Tripper (or it might cast Rflect on one of
your other characters).  Also note that this spell only works on characters who
are at a level that is a multiple of 2 (for example, 2, 4, 6, 8, and so on).)
If you don't want to try to learn it from Tripper, then your next chance to
learn L2 Old is from the enemy MagicDragon which can be found in X-Death's
Castle after Kelgar transforms it.

You can learn TimeSlip from the enemy Traveler which can be found in the Shield
Generator.

You can learn Aero 3 from the enemy Metamorpha that changes into Fan Wizard
which can be found in Gill's Shrine.  Note that there are a few different types
of Metamorpha, and some of them won't turn into Fan Wizard.  The one that can
turn into Whirl Demon can only turn into Fan Wizard, Ifrit, or Y Burn.  So if
you're fighting a Metamorpha that turns into something else, then it's not the
one that will turn into Fan Wizard.

You can learn LitlSong from the enemy MiniMage which can be found in the Great
Forest of Moore.

You can learn Condemnd from the enemy X-Death, the boss of X-Death's Castle.

them an Ether.)

You can learn Guardian from the enemy Stingray which can be found on the

Phoenix Tower.

You can learn MindBlst from the enemy Stoker, the boss of the Island Shrine.

Reflect on it so Level 3 Flare will reflect off of it and onto you.  You can't

               SECTION 26 - MONSTER TRANSLATIONS FOR PLAYSTATION
*******************************************************************************

This list doesn't have the translation for the names of all the monsters in the
game.  But it has the translation for the names of the ones that I think are
especially significant, because I listed them as a super enemy or the source of
a Blue Magic spell or rare item.  If you want the translation of the name of
another monster, I recommend the website http://ffvspirit.com/.

*******************************************************************************
                              SECTION 28 - SONGS
*******************************************************************************

This section describes the songs used with the Bard's !Sing ability.  Songs can
not be reflected by Walls.

Note that you won't be able to get Love Song or Charm Song after you leave
world 1.  (Unless you use the "Skipping the Pyramid" bug in the Bugs section,
which can only be done at the beginning of world 3.  That bug works in the SNES
version of the game, but it doesn't work in the Gameboy Advance version.  I'm
not sure about the Playstation version.)  And you won't be able to get Magic
Song after you get Lenna back at the Elder Tree.

If you're playing the Playstation or Gameboy Advance versions of Final Fantasy
5, see the Location Translations section for translations of the locations in
this section.

Power     Learned in Crescent in world 3 once you've played at least seven
          pianos.  Effect:  Increases strength of all party members for the
          duration of the fight.  The singer keeps singing this song, and the
          strength keeps increasing, until the singer gets hit or dies or the
          fight ends.
Speed     Learned in Surgate.  Effect:  Increases agility of all party members
          for the duration of the fight.  The singer keeps singing this song,
          and the agility keeps increasing, until the singer gets hit or dies
          or the fight ends.
Vitality  Learned in Crescent in world 1.  Effect:  Casts Regen on all party
          members.
Magic     Learned at the top of the Ancient Library in world 3.  Effect:
          Increases magic power of all party members for the duration of the
          fight.  The singer keeps singing this song, and the magic power keeps
          increasing, until the singer gets hit or dies or the fight ends.
Heroic    Learned in Crescent in world 3 once you've played all eight pianos.
          Effect:  Increases the level of all party members for the duration of
          the fight, which increases the chances of their spells working and
          the amount of damage their physical attacks and spells do.  The
          singer keeps singing this song, and the level keeps increasing, until
          the singer gets hit or dies or the fight ends.
Requiem   Learned in Kelb.  Effect:  Damages all undead enemies and causes them
          to constantly lose HP.
Love      Learned in Istory in world 1.  Effect:  Casts Stop on all enemies.
          Doesn't always work.
Charm     Learned in Lix in world 1.  Effect:  Confuses all enemies.  Doesn't
          always work.

The pianos are found in Tule, Carwen, Karnak, Crescent, Jacole, Rugor (secret
passage), Mua, and Mirage (enter the pub from the back and it's still in a
secret passage).



*******************************************************************************
                         SECTION 29 - TERRAIN ATTACKS
*******************************************************************************

This section describes the attacks used with the Geomancer's !Terrain ability.
Terrain attacks can not be reflected by Walls.

Terrain attacks do not need to be found or bought.  There are four terrain
attacks that can be used in each location.  At first you're only able to use
one attack, then when you get to level 11 you can use the second attack too,
then when you get to level 21 you can use the third attack too, then when you
get to level 51 you can use all four attacks.  When you first get to a level
with a new attack, the chance of getting that attack is fairly low.  But the
chance of getting that attack increases as your level increases, up until you
get the next attack.

Below is a description of each Terrain attack.  The levels listed are only
intended to describe the order in which you learn the attacks.  The levels
aren't described in the game, but they're useful as an approximation of the
relative usefulness of the attacks.  A level 2 attack might be the second
attack learned in one location and the third attack learned in another
location, but in every location it will always be learned after level 1 attacks
and before level 3 attacks.  Tornado and Bottomless Swamp are learned before
some attacks in some places and after those attacks in other places, so I
listed them as having multiple levels.

available, then its effect)

                              SECTION 32 - DANCES
*******************************************************************************

This section describes the dances with the Dancer's !Dance ability.

Dances do not need to be found or bought.  When you use the !Dance ability,
you'll do one of the four dances at random.  Although if you have the helmet
Tiara, the body armor Rainbow, or the accessory Red equipped, they will
increase your chance of doing the Sword Dance by letting you do the Sword Dance
when you otherwise would've done the Tempting Tango.

Sword Dance     Attacks one enemy for multiple times the amount of damage a
                normal attack would cause.  The amount of extra damage is a
                complicated formula that varies with your enemy's defense, but
                it does at least 4 times as much damage as attacking normally.
                Never misses (except sometimes when you're using a Rod).  Note
                that the amount of damage it does depends on the attack power
                of your weapon.
Mystery Waltz   Steals MP from one enemy.
Jitterbug Duet  Steals HP from one enemy.
Tempting Tango  Charms one enemy.

                             SECTION 33 - CATCHES
*******************************************************************************

This section describes the attacks with the Mediator's !Catch ability.

There are lots of monsters that use the Strong Fight attack when you catch and
release them.  I'm listing all of them and their stats below so that you can
compare them easily.

(The code for hacking is listed first, then whether you can catch it without
hacking, then the monster's name, then its attack power and attack multiplier,
which are parts of the formula that determine how much damage the attack does.
See J.L. Tseng's (a.k.a. InstructorTrepe's) FFV Algorithms and Stats FAQ for
more information about the formula that determines how much damage the attack
does.  It can be found on the page for the SNES version of Final Fantasy 5 at
www.gamefaqs.com.  Note that some of the monsters are only available in the
Gameboy Advance version, so I've listed their SNES hacking number as NA.)

Below is a full list of what attack each monster uses when you catch and
release them.  Some monsters use attacks that your characters could use on
their own (like the Black Magic spell Flare).  But when you catch and release
some monsters they'll use enemy magic.

(The code for hacking is listed first (FF is no monster), then whether you can
catch it without hacking, then the monster's name, then what attack it uses.)

* Before you can catch an enemy, you have to lower its HP.  Skull Eater only
has 1 HP, so you can't catch it normally, since it's either at full HP or dead.
But if its HP could be lowered without killing it, you would be able to catch
it.  Using savestate hacking to give it the Zombie status is one way to do that.

This section describes the magic used with the Necromancer's !Dark Arts
ability.  In order to learn each Dark Arts spell, you have to find and kill a
particular enemy, and have one of your characters deliver the final blow while
they have the Necromancer job.  Dark Arts spells can not be reflected by Walls.

Some Dark Arts spells can be used on one enemy or all enemies.  Their effect
will be stronger if you just use them on one enemy.

(The spell is listed first, then that spell's level, then the MP, then the
monster you have to kill to get the spell and its location)

Drain Touch  1  15  Mindflayer (Cloister of the Dead)

reflected by walls, then the effect.  The locations are listed separately

                           but the spell's label serves as a label for her

For information on enemy magic, catching monsters, monsters locations, and
monsters from whom you can learn Blue Magic, see the Enemy Magic, Catches,
Monsters Locations, and Blue Magic sections of this guide.  But if you want
additional information on monsters, I recommend the monsters list in J.L.
Tseng's (a.k.a. InstructorTrepe's) FFV Algorithms and Stats FAQ.  It can be
found on the page for the SNES version of Final Fantasy 5 at www.gamefaqs.com.
The Can't Evade field for each monster refers to the attack category of the
weapon you use.  See that guide's weapons section for information on each
weapon's attack category.  Its separate Monster Formations section also has
additional information, including how much ABP you get from each fight, whether
you can run from each fight, and whether void or analyze work in each fight.
Although J.L. Tseng's guide doesn't have information on the monsters that are
new in the Gameboy Advance version's Bonus Dungeon.

My guide uses the names for equipment and items that are used in the game's
menus.  But J.L. Tseng's FAQ uses different names for some things.  For
example, I refer to a staff that is called Judgment, but J.L. Tseng's FAQ
refers to the same weapon as the Staff of Judgement.  So if you search J.L.
Tseng's FAQ for all references to something, make sure you're using the name
that it uses.  My guide refers to some monstes as being beast-type.  J.L.
Tseng's FAQ refers to those monsters as having a Creature Type of Creature.
And my guide says that most bosses are immune to some types of attacks.  J.L.
Tseng's FAQ refers to those monsters as having a Creature Type of Heavy.

                SECTION 41 - MONSTERS LOCATIONS (ALPHABETICAL)
*******************************************************************************

Note that some monsters can be found on some floors on a dungeon, but not other
floors.  So don't spend too much time looking for a monster on a floor where it
can't be found.

If you're playing the Playstation or Gameboy Advance versions of Final Fantasy
5, see the Location Translations and Monster Translations sections for
translations of the information in this section.

                SECTION 42 - MONSTERS LOCATIONS (CHRONOLOGICAL)
*******************************************************************************

This list uses the monster names from the GBA translation, since I think people
playing the GBA game and trying to complete the beastiary are the most likely
to want to use this section.  But it still uses the locations names from the
SNES translation, because I don't want to take the time to translate them.  See
the Location Translations and Monster Translations sections for translations of
the information in this section.

Each monster's number in the GBA version's beastiary is also listed.  Note that
to avoid spoilers, this list only has the first location of each monster.  For
all locations, see the list that's in alphabetical order.

*******************************************************************************
                          SECTION 43 - STATUS EFFECTS
*******************************************************************************

For information on Status Effects I recommend the Status Effects section of
J.L. Tseng's (a.k.a. InstructorTrepe's) FFV Algorithms and Stats FAQ.  It can
be found on the page for the SNES version of Final Fantasy 5 at
www.gamefaqs.com.  Note its separate section on status duration determination.



*******************************************************************************
                             SECTION 44 - HACKING
*******************************************************************************

If you want to hack savestates, you'll need a hex editor.  You can get Hex
Workshop at http://www.bpsoft.com/.

For information on savestate hacking, I recommend TuxedoCyan's hacking guide
and Dark Penguin's magic hacking guide.  You can find them both on the page for
the SNES version of Final Fantasy 5 at www.gamefaqs.com.  TuxedoCyan's list of
items uses an old translation, so instead of that part of his guide, you can
use the codes in the weapons, armor, and item sections in my guide.  I put a *
for the code for items that are only available in the Gameboy Advance game,
since there is no code for them for hacking in the SNES game.

Also note that offsets 170F and 1710 control the timer in Karnak Castle and the
Sunken Worus Tower if you aren't in a battle.  Offsets 88A8 and 88A9 control
the timer in Karnak Castle, the Sunken Worus Tower, and the fight against Odin
if you are in a battle.  The unit is 60ths of a second.

And offsets 1128, 1178, 11C8, and 1218 control what monsters your characters
have caught using the Mediator's !Catch ability if you aren't in a battle.
Offsets 2C28, 2CA8, 2D28, and 2DA8 control what monsters your characters have
caught using the Mediator's !Catch ability if you are in a battle.  See the
codes in the Catches section of my guide.  Although if you haven't caught a
monster, and then you use savestate hacking when you're in a battle to simulate
having caught one monster in particular, you'll also have to change your
character's ability so it registers that you've caught a monster in general.
If you don't do that, then your character will still try to catch another
monster rather than release the one he already has.  Offsets 436F, 4370, 4371,
and 4372 control your first character's abilities.  Offsets 4383, 4384, 4385,
and 4386 control your second character's abilities.  Offsets 4397, 4398, 4399,
and 439A control your third character's abilities.  Offsets 43AB, 43AC, 43AD,
and 43AE control your fourth character's abilities.  If those offsets are set
to 1D, then they'll be Catch.  If you change them to 1E, then they'll be
Release.

Offset 15C7 controls what spell the MagicLamp will cast next if you aren't in a
battle.  Offset 8887 controls what spell the MagicLamp will cast next if you
are in a battle.  00 to 0C are the summons other than Chocobo (and Phenix,
which the MagicLamp doesn't summon), with the lower numbers corresponding to
stronger summons.  0D to 1F all cast Chocob, and 20 to FF all cast Egg Chop.

Offset 15C8 contains the number of times you've run away if you aren't in a
battle.  Offset 8888 contains the number of times you've run away if you are in
a battle.  The number of times you've run away affects the attack power of the
BraveBld and Chicken Knife.

Offset 15C9 controls what spell the Wonder Rod will cast next if you aren't in
a battle.  Offset 8889 controls what spell the Wonder Rod will cast next if you
are in a battle.  The Wonder Rod can normally only cast White or Black magic,
but if you use savestate hacking, you can get it to cast other types of magic.
Note that it skips 01, it goes back to 00 after 23, and it goes back to 00
after FF).  I haven't identified what all the codes do.  If you can identify
something I haven't, let me know.  The Wonder Rod has 0 attack power, so there
are several types of abilities (like Sword Dance or Aim) that would all just do
0 damage, so it's hard to identify them.  Here's what I've been able to
determine:

00-11 are White magic
12-23 are Black magic
24-35 are Dimen magic
36-44 are ?
45-4C are Songs
4D-5B are Espers (only Chocob's first attack, Chocobo Kick, and Odin's first
          attack, True Edge, are included in this group)
5C is the Esper Chocob's second attack, Fat Chocobo.
5D is the Esper Odin's second attack, Gungnir.
5E is ? (maybe nothing)
5F is DrgnSwd's HP draining
60 is DrgnSwd's MP draining
61 is ? (maybe nothing)
62 is the spell cast by the Silver Harp
63 is the spell cast by the Dream Harp
64 is the spell cast by the Lamia Harp
65 is the spell cast by the Apollo Harp
66 is ? (maybe the dance Sword Dance)
67 is the dance Mystery Waltz
68 is the dance Jitterbug Duet
69 is the dance Tempting Tango
6A is the Mystic Knight's Barrier spell
6B is ? (maybe nothing)
6C is ? (maybe nothing)
6D is the spell cast by many whips that paralyzes the target 50% of the time
6E is ?
6F is ?
70-8D are Blue magic
8E-DB are Enemy magic
DC is ?
DD wins the battle instantly
DE-FF are ? (maybe nothing)

White magic spells are in the order in which they're listed in the white magic
section of this guide (and the same for other types of magic).  DD, which
causes you to win the battle instantly, is an especially interesting code.

                        SECTION 46 - MISC TRANSLATIONS
*******************************************************************************

I'm not going to provide translations for all the equipment, since I don't
think people need it.  But here are a few of the things for which I think
people might be most likely to search and keywords for search engines.

Latest SNES name  Other names
Butz              Bartz
Boco              Boko
Lenna             Reina
Cara              Krile or Kururu
Guido             Gill or Ghido
Exdeath           X-Death
Normal Job        Suppin or Traveler
By RPGe           Efu Efu or EfuEfu
Cursed Shield     Bloodied Shield or Blood Shield
Dragoon Spear     Dragon Lance, Dragon Spear, or Hiryuu Spear
Drain Sword       Blood Sword
Guard Ring        Protect Ring
Mythril Staff     Mithril Staff
Soot              Ash
Tempest Katana    Nimbus Katana, Strato Katana, or Murakumo Katana
Note that Final Fantasy 5 is also known as Final Fantasy V, FF5, or FFV.  Final
Fantasy 5 Advance is also known as Final Fantasy V Advance, FF5A, or FFVA.



*******************************************************************************
                       SECTION 47 - VERSION DIFFERENCES
*******************************************************************************

The Playstation game is essentially the same as the SNES game, except that they
use different translations.  The Gameboy Advance game is essentially the same
as the SNES and Playstation games, except that it uses a third translation, and
it has some extra stuff.  It has a bonus dungeon that has some of the old
monsters, but also some new bosses and monsters and new equipment.  The Gameboy
Advance game also has four extra jobs which have their own abilities, and their
own spells which you can learn after you get the last of the extra jobs.  Note
that the new jobs use the same types of equipment as the old jobs.  And some of
the bugs apply to one version of the game, but not another version.

                       SECTION 48 - MISSING INFORMATION
*******************************************************************************

This guide doesn't have detailed descriptions of all of the abilities of the
jobs that are new to the Gameboy Advance version yet, since it's so new.

This guide doesn't have any information about codes, since I don't use codes
(although it does have information on savestate hacking, which is better).  And
it doesn't have any Final Fantasy 5 art, fanfics, or information about Final
Fantasy 5 music, since I'm not especially interested in any of that.  It
doesn't have any information about the mythology behind some of the things in
the game (like the sword Excalibur, or the Esper Shiva).  It doesn't have
specific strategies for all the bosses, since I don't think they're especially
necessary.  Some other guides and websites have information on those things, so
you can search them for that.  I don't have recommendations on which ones to
use, although you can find a lot of guides at www.gamefaqs.com.

But other than that, I think my guide is complete.  It has, or has links to,
all the information available on FF5.  I read through all the other FF5 guides
when I was writing it, and tried to combine information from all of them.
Although there are some niche guides (like guides to doing a straight character
challenge, low level game, or speed run) that have information that mine
doesn't, for people interested in those things.

                              SECTION 49 - THANKS
*******************************************************************************

When I wrote this there were lots of guides that had already been written on
Final Fantasy 5, but none of them were complete.  I combined information from
lots of different sources to make this guide, in addition to adding information
of my own.  In particular, thanks go to VeghEsther, Chen Guojun,
dingo_jellybean, Exdeath, Bob the Almighty, Matt Hobbs, Dragon Fogel, Ian Diaz
(a.k.a. iLikeSwords), Samurai Goroh, TopperCop, Chris Kohler, Nora Stevens,
Tatsushi Nakao, TuxedoCyan, Dark Penguin, Mystery Moogle, Vilurum, Ray,
silktail, Nati, http://www.uffsite.net/ff5/, http://ffvspirit.com/, and
http://www.geocities.jp/zonolab/ff/ffindex.html.  I never would've been able to
come up with most of the information in the Tips or Bugs sections without them.
Most of all, thanks goes to J.L. Tseng (a.k.a. InstructorTrepe), whose guide
gave me a lot of the information for my own guide.
