    1. Intro***********************GAIA_1****************************************
    Welcome to my FAQ for a game that covers, to the best of my ability, my first
    RPG. The Illusion of Gaia is a game for the SNES that I got at the age of
    four. Of course, I stupidly got rid of it and, for the past eleven or so years,
    I never saw this game.
    
    Thanks to the FAQ Bounty program at GameFAQs, I was able to finally replay
    this game. So, thanks to SBAllen for the cash. I now have this excellent RPG.
    Quintet made this great game, second in the Soul Blazer trilogy. That may be
    all I can give on game background, but Enix, the publisher for the game, is
    probably more known for merging with Square in the early 2000s, becoming
    Square Enix, and spewing out great Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts games. 
    
    Anyway, there was no point to the above. Basically, I hope you enjoy this FAQ.

    Might be nice to start off with a little explaining of the format of this
    walkthrough. Each area is divided off by two lines of right-end parentheses, as
    above, with the area name pseudo-centered between them. Below that, as it is
    applicable, is a treasure list. Basically, this is a preview of the available
    treasures for that area, with some checkboxes you can use if you decide to
    print this out. There will also be monster bestiaries, but that won't start
    until about Section II. Okay so far?
    
    Anyhow, we'll begin at the school in South Cape. School there is just ending.
    As it does, the main character, Will, gives you a bit of background. To make
    it short, Will, his father, and some others went to the Tower of Babel last
    year. There, all but Will met a harsh fate, as far as we can currently guess.
    Will was the only one who left there alive.
    
    After class ends, you'll be told by your friends nearby to meet them at the
    usual place. This place, as Lance, the only classmate left, will tell you is
    the seaside cave. Exit through the northwestern door, first - we're going to
    do a bit of sidequesting. (Yeah, we got into THAT pretty fast.)
    
    Atop the school, go north to the shining orb. As you approach, it'll become a
    dark painting. Walk into it from the front to find the Dark Space. Here, you
    will meet Gaia, who will foreshadow your destiny. You can save here if you
    want, but this is useless otherwise. Exit when you're done. Outside, on the
    west side of the bell tower, you'll be able to walk into an unseen, small area.
    Examine the area to find a Red Jewel.
    
    Head southwest to find a gap in the fence around the roof. Walk at it, going
    south, to jump down to the grass. You'll find another such ledge nearby; jump
    down it. Here, you'll find Gem, the jewel trader of this game. You can go ahead
    and give him your Red Jewel if you want. (Note that you can just use the Red
    Jewel to send it to him, if you need to clear up some room.) Jump down one more
    ledge to the ground. To your west is Seth's house; to your east is Lance's. Go
    into this large house and into the basement. Head to the northeast corner and
    examine the top-right blue jar to find another Red Jewel.
    
    That's all the sidequesting we can really do for the moment. Return outside
    and explore a little more if you want. Go to the lower part of the southern
    portion of town, near the sea. Cross the pier to the east to find a doorway.
    Enter and exit this cave many, many times (it took me about 35 last time) to
    have a man and a pot appear nearby. Examine the pot for a Red Jewel, your last
    one for here.
    
    Go into the cave now and speak with both Seth and Lance. Soon thereafter, Erik
    will run in with some news about the princess of Edward's Castle having gone
    missing. No one seems to really care (heh). Anyhow, stand beside Erik now to
    continue. You will soon be forced to have Will show off his psychic abilities.
    Go to the southwest corner of the room, face the green statue to the east, and
    hold either the L or R buttons. This makes Will twirl his flute around, using
    his telekinetic abilities to move the statue (note that it goes only towards
    you!). Lance will then, shortly afterwards, have you pick the Ace of Diamonds
    from a set of four cards. Pick whichever card you want - it ends up being the
    right card.
    
    Afterwards, leave the cave to find that an unusual amount of time has passed.
    (Of course, no one really notes that fact.) Anyhow, go west, north, up the
    stairs, and back north to the school. Go west, ignoring the entrance, to find
    a familiar jump ledge. Use it to find Gem again. Speak with him and use the
    middle option to hand over your three Red Jewels, which yields a Herb. A Herb
    is pretty much the HP-restorative item of this game. There are only twelve, so
    be conservative!!
    
    Jump down the gap nearby and go back east and upstairs. Head to the northern
    portion of town and into the house on the right, right next to the northern
    exit. This is Will's house. Anyhow, go inside to find a pig wrecking the place.
    As you proceed upstairs, the pig will shove you out of Kara's way. There will
    be a short conversation, after which you'll want to head upstairs. Speak with
    Grandpa Bill there to initiate another cutscene. Kara ends up screaming and,
    after you go downstairs, you'll watch a conversation and pretty much learn that
    Kara is the princess missing from Edward's Castle.
    
    Your family, unfazed, decide to proceed on dinner. After speaking with them, go
    upstairs to eat some good ol' snail pie.  *vomits*
    
    The next morning, go downstairs and speak with Lola. You'll end up with a
    letter from King Edward himself, asking you to bring the Crystal Ring to the
    castle. You'll also learn Lola's Melody. Forget about the Crystal Ring -- you
    simply can't get it -- and exit the house. Outside, go west and north to the
    town entrance. Speak with the guard and you'll be permitted out of town. Go
    ahead and leave.
    
    And so, a journey begins.

    Once you arrive from South Cape, head east to find a room. Here is a large
    pillar with two stairwells. First, go behind the large pillar and you should be
    able to speak with someone there to obtain a Red Jewel. Then ascend the
    stairwells (left, right) to the third floor. There, go west and across the
    bridge to find Kara's room. Speak with the guard, then Kara for a bit, soon
    after which you are forcibly ejected. Go back to the stairwells and go back
    down (right, left) to the first floor and go west.
    
    As you do, you'll find a doorway. Go into this doorway and proceed east to the
    King and Queen's thrones. Speak with King Edward (the one on the left) and you
    will be asked if you brought the Crystal Ring. Either choice results in the
    same thing - you are sent to prison.

    Our first dungeon, and our first Monster Bestiary chart. Pretty simple versus
    some others I've had. HP indicates the enemies' health, which are marked by the
    red circles in the top-right corner of your screen. DP (Dark Points) are gained
    by touching the orbs dropped by most enemies. DP functions as your 1-Up thing:
    get 100 DP and you'll get a life, basically, although you don't really get a
    game over here (short of a power outage). The quantity is an obvious factor:
    how many are in the dungeon. (That also generally means in the whole game.)
    You all set?
    
    Oh wait, we're still in prison. In here, examine the cell door, the
    ball-and-chain, and the moss in the corners nearby. After examining all of
    them, wait a bit and a loaf of bread will be tossed to you from above. Eat it
    and, after a bit more waiting, Will's father will begin to speak to him from
    within his flute. Soon, a gem will fall from above. Using Will's telekinetic
    abilities (L or R), face the gem and telekinetically move it to you.
    
    Afterwards, head to the cell door and wait for a bit. Eventually, Kara's pig
    will come on by, with a letter and key tied to it. After reading the letter,
    press Select and go ahead make the Prison Key your selected item. Head to the
    cell door and press B to use the key, thereby unlocking the door and letting
    you escape. Go south some to find two cell doors on either side. The western
    door is relatively useless - all it holds is an armored, disillusioned prisoner
    who thinks he can escape on his own. The other cell, however, holds a Dark
    Space. Go in there and save, then, back in the "real" world, go to the south
    to find the main portion of this dungeon.
    
    In here, you'll fight three Gray Bats. Go forward and defeat each one. To do
    so, you'll need to attack them (with your flute, of all things), which is
    executed with the A button (usually, I think). At this point in the game, you
    will probably need three hits to defeat each one. Go through the other door.
    
    Here, defeat the Gray Bat nearby and go south, where you'll find another three
    Gray Bats and a bridge. Go across to find another two Gray Bats. Get rid of
    them and you'll find a gap in the rail next to the water (ignore the White
    Skeleton nearby for the moment). Stand near this gap and a Tentacle Eye will
    appear. Hit it a few times, then dodge its attack. (Note - Remember Will's
    telekinetic ability? If you face where the missile comes from, you can block
    it while twirling your flute!) A few more hits later and the Tentacle Eye will
    be no more.
    
    Telekinectically pick up the DP it dropped while the energy orb it also
    released opens up the White Skeleton. Head on over to it and defeat it (nothing
    to mention, other than hacking and slashing). Afterwards, pick up the DP and go
    southwest to find another gap in the railing next the water. Defeat the
    Tentacle Eye here, too, and go south to find another two Gray Bats. Go across
    the bridge nearby, exorcising the White Skeleton on the way. On the other side,
    you'll find a Tentacle Eye amongst two Gray Bats. Defeat them all and the
    Tentacle Eye will release some energy, opening up another path ahead.
    Additionally, you will have killed all of the enemies in this area, netting you
    a Strength upgrade!
    
    Go into the next room via the nearby doorway, then upstairs to find two more
    Gray Bats. As you go to the statues blocking your path southward, a flower will
    appear. Ignore it for the moment, and telekinetically move a statue, thereby
    making another path south. Follow it, defeating the two Gray Bats and the one
    White Skeleton on the way. As you go downstairs, the flower from earlier will
    leave and two things will begin to circle around you. Ignore them, but don't
    touch them unless you want damage, and just kill the Gray Bat and Tentacle Eye
    nearby, then go upstairs for another Gray Bat.
    
    Nearby should be a fork in the road. Take the western branch to another White
    Skeleton. Defeat it and go back and dowsntairs. Defeat that White Skeleton and
    the Tentacle Eye. Hit the switch nearby and go upstairs for an Herb. Go back
    down and smack the switch again. Defeat the Gray Bat and Tentacle Eye nearby,
    then continue forward for another Tentacle Eye and a White Skeleton. Defeat
    them both for a Defense upgrade, as well as some energy opening up the path
    forward. Go to the next room.
    
    There, you'll soon find two Tentacle Eyes on either side of you. Quickly, but
    carefully, defeat both of them. Go around the area and dodge the falling
    spears (basically, walk slowly). As you do, defeat the White Skeleton and go
    upstairs, through the maze. Take the right path when possible to avoid a spear
    to that head of yours. A Gray Bat may walk into the trap and get stuck by some
    spears. Take advantage of its plight and smack it to death with your deadly
    flute. The switch nearby is rusted, so head upstairs. You'll kill a White
    Skeleton and three Gray Bats as you do so. Once you can, fall off of the ledge
    above the switch to pound it in, revealing a hidden room. Go in there to find a
    Red Jewel.
    
    You'll also be given a hint by an apparition here. But since you're reading my
    FAQ, you need no help from it. ^_^  Anyhow, return to the previous area and
    continue along the path. You'll find an area further ahead.
    
    This area has four Gray Bats and a Brown Bat in it. Now, look at the formation
    of the obstacles nearest you -- looks like   |_  _|   that previous diagram.
    Position yourself between the two lower branches and repeatedly stab northwards
    with your flute and you'll hopefully (and quite likely) not let a dang Bat
    through.
    
    After the "boss", you'll get an HP upgrade for defeating the enemies in the
    room. A path ahead also will open up. Go ahead and utilize this pathway to find
    a hallway. You'll find a switch on either side of you, neither of which seem to
    do anything. Speak with the rose next to the western switch to get a hint to
    play Lola's Melody. Equip it and, after Will's long performance, a voice will
    tell you to go to the east side. Do so and, when the number changes to "3",
    smack your Attack button (usually the A button) to hit the switch. If done
    properly, a door will open. Go on through.
    
    In the next room, ignore the eastern switch and head west. As you do, you'll
    fight a Tentacle Eye, two Gray Bats, a White Skeleton, and another Tentacle
    Eye before finding a dead end. Here, you'll fight four Tentacle Eyes at once.
    This is easier than you think - if you stand between two Tentacle Eyes at the
    same time, you can hit both of them. Attack fast enough and they won't even get
    a hit in. Repeat with the other group and the central blocks are destroyed,
    revealing a Dark Space.
    
    Go inside of it to find a statue on your left. Speak with Gaia to learn that
    you can now morph into the Dark Knight, Freedan. Do so by standing in front of
    the new statue. Freedan can use telekinesis, much like Will. However, that's
    where similarities end. He cannot use the flute or any of Will's other special
    abilities gained later on, and vice versa. His sword is seemingly stronger and
    definitely has a longer range. Anyhow, exit the Dark Space.
    
    Remember that switch near the start of this area we skipped earlier? Head back
    to that and head across. Defeat the Gray Bat and continue further to find a
    White Skeleton that's just begging for an exorcism. Literally take the high
    road afterwards and head across. On the other side, you'll have to fight a
    Brown Skeleton. Defeat it and remember to kill its head. This opens up the
    path ahead. Continue along this new path, defeating the two White Skeletons on
    the way. Continue some more to find four Gray Bats, a White Skeleton, and a
    Tentacle Eye further along this very linear path. After defeating them, go
    upstairs and follow the spike-like things down. Go west to find a White
    Skeleton, as well as a Red Jewel within the chests. Run to the east side of
    the area and head north. Defeat the Brown Skeleton for a new path forward, and
    a Defense upgrade for defeating all of the enemies in the room.
    
    Go along the new path to the next area, where Freedan will transform back into
    Will, if he hasn't already. Go north to the barrel and around to its other
    side. Examine the bottom barrel for a Red Jewel. Further north, you'll meet
    with an Itory girl named Lilly, who noticed Will changing form. As the
    conversation continues, you'll learn that Lilly was sent by Lola to rescue
    Will. The Elder calls to Lilly and she reverts to her flower form and floats
    off.
    
    You should go upstairs, across the prison room, and upstairs to the first floor
    of Edward's Castle.

    Go up the stairwells much as you did before, up to Kara's room. (As you do, it
    is worth noting that speaking to the servants reveals that they don't give a
    flying crap about Kara soon to be escaping. Heh.) Anyhow, on the third floor,
    go west and across the bridge to Kara's room, which you are free to enter as
    the guard is asleep. (Guess that's another guard off the payroll.)
    
    Speak with Kara and she'll begin following you. Go back to the first floor,
    speaking with some more uncaring (and soon-to-be fired?) guards if you want.
    Try to leave and you'll be coerced into grabbing some food from the cellar for
    your journey ahead. You'll actually need it, too. Go back to the stairwell
    area and go down a floor. There, go left and examine the first open barrel to
    find the Meat. Return to the first floor and leave through the open front door.
    
    Awfully tight security for the king's castle, eh?

    After leaving Edward's Castle and returning to South Cape, you'll end up back
    in Will's rather unclean home. Head upstairs when possible and Kara will tell
    you that this happened because of the Jackal, a hunter hired by the king and
    queen to hunt you down, and he let's no one in his way. (This will probably be
    the only mention of him for a long time, too.)
    
    Soon, Lilly will arrive and tell you that Will's grandparents are safe in
    Itory Village, which is her own hometown. We're soon to head over there, but
    we want to grab something first.
    
    Leave the house now and return to where Gem is (jump off of the ledge next to
    the schoolhouse). Speak with him and hand over your Red Jewels to receive a
    Defense upgrade.
    
    That is all that is really left for you to do, unless you have some Red Jewels
    to hunt down here (and therefore probably didn't get the upgrade). Head back to
    Will's place, which Lilly and Kara have seemed to clean up rather quickly.
    Speak with Lilly and opt to leave town. After a quick conversation, we'll set
    off to the north.

    You'll arrive in the village on what seems to be naught but an empty, grassy
    field. Lilly will tell you to play Lola's Melody. Go to the menu and equip it,
    then play it, which makes the village itself appear. Lilly and Kara will leave
    you, so you can freely explore the village.
    
    See the stacks of wood nearby? Examine the nearest one for a Red Jewel. Return
    to South Cape now and speak with Gem once again to get your HP boost. After
    that, return to Itory Village.
    
    Once you return, go up the stone inclines to their peak, where you'll be able
    to get into the Dark Space. Go there now to learn the Psycho Dash ability from
    Gaia, which is required for in-game progress. This is little more than a rapid,
    powerful tackle. To execute it, hold down your Attack button until Will starts
    to flash rapidly (after the second slow flash).
    
    After the scene there, save and exit the Dark Space. Go southeast to find a
    westbound ramp. Run down it without stopping and you'll soon reach a new part
    of town. Try to leave it and a voice will out to you. Return to the flowers and
    you'll find a ghostly apparition; speak with it and the Elder, which is who he
    is, will ask if you were summoned by your father. Tell him "Yes", and so the
    same further in the conversation at the second question.
    
    After the conversation is over, go down the ladder to the southwest and into
    the cave. There, walk straight to the northern wall. Walk a bit to the right
    afterwards and start hitting around with your flute. Once you hear a thump,
    face the wall where it was and use your Psycho Dash there. This will open up
    a cavern behind the wall. Go inside and grab Inca Statue A.
    
    Leave the cavern in its entirety now and go back up the ladder. Speak with the
    Elder and he'll give you some clues about your journey. Go down the incline
    nearby to return to town and into Lilly's house (the southeastern house with
    Bill and Lola next to the cliff). Speak with Lilly and you can head to your
    next destination...

    Upon arriving, head up to the upper ledge and you'll find some ghosts floating
    around. They are rather harmless. Speak with them and go into the cavern below.
    
    Here, you'll have to kill six Caterpillars with twenty seconds (that is one
    every 3.3 seconds). Use your Psycho Dash, if just for the first few, as it is
    an instant-kill for these enemies. One strategy is to first hug the west wall
    and go north, which makes the Caterpillars avoid notice of you. Then simply
    rush at the Caterpillar(s) closest to you and you'll strike a few at a time
    with a Psycho Dash. Then just smack 'em with your flute - it takes too long to
    charge up multiple Psycho Dashes.
    
    If you fail this test, exit and re-enter the cave to start it over. Once you
    succeed, grab Inca Statue B and leave the cavern. Speak with Lilly to head to
    the Incan Ruins.

    Once you arrive, head northeast to find a hole in the wall. As you proceed
    towards it, Kara will appear, apparently having come and waited here. After a
    quick conversation, it is settled that you'll go into the dungeon and Kara and
    Lilly will wait outside of it. So head into the cave and your next dungeon.

    |____________________|______|_________________________|_______________________|
    
    Upon arriving, go across the bridge and through the doorway. In this area,
    you'll quickly begin by fighting three Mudmen. Defeat the trio and you'll also
    find a Four-Face further along the path. After it shoots its four lasers, go in
    and defeat it too. (By the way, block the lasers with telekinesis if you want
    to fight next to it.) Continue along the linear path, defeating another two
    Mudmen as you do so. Charge up a Psycho Dash and head downstairs. There, you
    will need to fight three Mudmen and three Four-Faces. Defeat them all to get a
    Defense boost. Once you're done with that, go through the western exit.
    
    You'll find five Green Caterpillars. Smash 'em and head upstairs. Defeat the
    Mudman up there and start charging up a Psycho Dash. Once it's charged, hold it
    for a momeny and head west. Psycho Dash into the Four-Face, then batter the
    Mudman with your ever-so-deadly flute. Continue along the path to find another
    Four-Face. Finish it off and proceed forward some more. You'll find a ramp
    further ahead. Ignore it for the moment and continue to find some more enemies:
    two Mudmen and three Four-Faces. Finish them off and continue forward to
    another trio of Four-Faces. Once you defeat them, you'll get an HP upgrade and
    a shortcut is made for future use. Go through the doorway nearby.
    
    There, you'll find a chest on the ledge. Open it up to find the Blue Block.
    Go back inside and use the new shortcut to go back to the room before this
    one. There, go to the opposite side of the spike pit and you'll find a hole in
    the floor. Use the Blue Block near it to insert it in the hole, causing some
    blocks to fall from above, creating a bridge. Cross it to the next area.
    
    Here, go downstairs and dispatch the Four-Face. Continue along. As you do,
    merely take note of the gap in the railing at the side of the path; we will
    use this shortly, but not yet. Continue across the bridge for a Mudman duo and
    a Four-Face. Get rid of them and a shortcut will open up to the start. Ignore
    it unless you need to use it. Anyhow, in the next section, you'll find a second
    ledge to jump off of and a ladder; note that these lead to the same place.
    
    We're not yet going to use the first ledge, so first proceed to the
    aforementioned second ledge and jump down. Go into the next area to find a
    pair of Mudmen. Go east to the staircase and start going up. You'll find some
    blue-green statues there. Use the Psycho Dash to break them. At the end of this
    path, you'll find a chest. Inside is an ever-valuable Herb. Go back along the
    path and back outside. Climb the ladder and return to the first ledge we noted
    (see above paragraph for details).
    
    Jump off of this ledge and go into the newly-found doorway. Once inside, start
    charging up a Psycho Dash and proceed to the two Four-Faces on either side of
    the corridor. Hit one with the Psycho Dash, and the other with the flute until
    both are gone. Charge another Psycho Dash and continue along to another two
    Four-Faces. Defeat them as before, and include the nearby Mudman in your wrath.
    Charge up another Psycho Dash and go downstairs. Use the Psycho Dash on the
    statue in your way to get rid of it. Once past it, defeat the three Green
    Caterpillars. You'll receive a Strength upgrade afterwards. Proceed north to
    the next area.
    
    As you proceed here, you'll find three Green Slimes. Defeat them and you'll
    have a choice to use either the stairs or the ramp. Use the stairs and you'll
    find a Floating Head amongst two more Green Slimes. Climb upstairs further
    ahead to find another Green Slime trio. Go downstairs and through the doorway
    to head outside.
    
    Nearby are two Blue Caterpillars. Get rid of them and examine the skeleton
    nearby for a clue, which I'll end up helping you deal with anyways. Go east
    and up the ladder to the ledge above. Defeat the Four-Face to make a new
    ladder, which only really serves as a shortcut. For now, go west and through
    the doorway.
    
    In this room are four gold statues and four gold tiles. These gold statues are
    actually Guardians in disguise -- they are a real pain at this point in the
    game, so DO NOT get very close to them. (However, you can come back here and
    exit and re-enter to grind for lots of DP.) Anyhow, we want to have the statues
    on the four tiles. There is no specific place for each one to go. However, you
    have to use your telekinetic abilities to move them. Begin by moving either
    both of the northern or the southern statues under the middle two tiles, then
    put the other two under the outer two tiles. Now just get north of the tiles
    and pull each statue onto a tile. If done correctly, a path to the next area
    will open up. (By the way, this is permanently open now. Defeat the Guardians
    if you want.) Go through it to a stairwell; continue along to the next room.
    
    As you proceed through this room, beware of the gold tiles -- stepping on them
    can activate traps that will hurt the unaware player. Try noly to step on the
    ones I tell you to. Go south, ignoring the tiles, to the skeleton. Examine it
    if you want and continue south and downstairs. Defeat the two Blue Caterpillars
    nearby and step on the western gold tile to make a bridge. Go across it and
    step on another tile to make another bridge. Defeat the Four-Face and the Blue
    Caterpillar here and step on the next gold tile to end the path. Continue
    along, defeating the Four-Face as you do.
    
    On the larger ledge, go into the Dark Space and have Gaia heal you. Save, then
    transform into Freedan through the statue on the left. Exit the Dark Space and
    continue upstairs. Go along this path, defeating the three Four-Faces as you
    do so. The third one should be the final enemy for this area, which will net
    you a Defense upgrade. It will also make a useful shortcut to the near-start of
    the room. Ignore it for the moment and use the doorway to get outside.
    
    There, you'll learn the Wind Melody. Woo. Go back into the cavern and use the
    shortcut. Backtrack to the outside area prior to the four-Guardian room. Go
    down the ladder and proceed to previous area. Go upstairs, across the upper
    area, and then downstairs. Proceed to circle area, using Freedan's sword range
    to hit the Floating Head within the enclosure. After defeating it, you'll be
    able to use the ramp nearby. Use it and head to the new area. There, go along
    to the two Green Slimes. Defeat them and head upstairs for another Floating
    Head and two more Green Slimes. Defeating them will net you an HP upgrade.
    Afterwards, head south to the next area.
    
    Here, you'll want to go to the Guardians nearby and defeat each one of the
    trio. Ignore the ramp to the east for now and simply continue on to the
    Floating Head. Defeating it will open up a new path. Go down the ramp and
    across the river.
    
    On the other side, head southeast and upstairs. Continue along this path,
    defeating the Green Slime trio on the way. Past them, you'll find another two
    Green Slimes with a Floating Head nearby. Defeat them and ignore the ramp,
    unless you need to backtrack, which you don't right now. You'll soon be at a
    fork in the path -- the northern path is the way to go. As you go along,
    ignore the stairway and you'll soon reach a Guardian. Defeat it and open up the
    treasure chest for another Herb.
    
    Backtrack some and go up the previously-ignored staircase. Defeat the Floating
    Head near the top, then continue along the hall. You'll soon come to two
    Guardians, one on each side of the path. Try to activate and defeat them one at
    a time and continue. You'll soon come to a Green Slime duo. Defeat them and
    continue further along and east. You'll then come to a doorway. Ignore it and
    go south to find some inactive Guardians. To activate these, rather than get
    near them, hit the switch nearby and you'll fight them all at once. Defeat them
    all for a Defense upgrade.
    
    Go outside via the doorway to find two more Four-Faces. Dispatch them and
    continue along to find two Mudmen and two Blue Caterpillars. Dispatch all four
    of them and continue. You'll soon come to a doorway, near which is a Four-Face.
    Defeat it to obtain a Strength boost. You'll also end up creating a shortcut
    back to a previously-visited area. Ignore it and go through the doorway nearby.
    
    Inside, go upstairs to find and defeat three Green Slimes. After them, go east
    and north to find another Green Slime duo. Defeat those, too, and you'll find
    a pair of Guardians. Defeat them and proceed to the stairway. Here, you'll be
    able to notice the switch-activated Guardian quartet. Use the switch nearby
    and defeat them.
    
    After that battle, go across the bit of land next to the water to eventually
    find a Green Slime quartet. Defeat them, backtrack, and go upstairs and down
    the ramp. You'll find a doorway near where you land. Ignore it and head south
    to four Floating Heads and a Green Slime. Be careful, because the Floating
    Heads can swarm you quite easily. You can activate them one at a time and
    backtrack away from the enemy group to defeat it in relative peace. Once you
    defeat all five enemies, you'll get an HP boost.
    
    You'll also find an exit to your south. For now, head through the northern exit
    from earlier and to that area. Go west and defeat the Mudman duo, then go west
    and south to a Green Caterpillar duo. Defeat them and return to the doorway and
    go south, past the Dark Space, and upstairs. Defeat the four Blue Caterpillars
    for a Strength augmentation. Go south from here to find your Red Jewel in the
    chest. Return to the Dark Space and save.
    
    You don't technically need to transform back into Will for this part, mainly
    because I recommend using Freedan for the boss anyways, and you can proceed
    there without using Will. Do so if you want, however.
    
    Anyhow, go south two areas to an area with a bunch of gold tiles laying
    around. If you play the Wind Melody here as Will, one will start glowing, as
    per the #-marked tile in this diagram:
                   ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___
                  |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |
                  |___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|
                  |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |
                  |___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|
                  |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |
                  |___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|
                  |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |
                  |___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|
                  |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |
                  |___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|
                  |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |###|   |   |   |
                  |___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|###|___|___|___|
                  |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |
                  |___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|___|
    
    Now, if you used Will to come here, stand on the proper tile for a few seconds
    to open up the passage. The tile does NOT need to be glowing -- you don't have
    to play the Wind Melody, or even use Will. So long as you stand on the proper
    tile, as per the #-marks in the above diagram, for a few seconds, you are
    golden. (Pardon the pun.) Regardless of who you used, go south to the next
    area.
    
    Here, proceed along the path shortly to a ladder. Go down it, equip Inca
    Statue A, and use it in front of the slot down here. Go up the ladder and west
    to another ladder. Go down it and, like before, put Inca Statue B into the
    slot. Go up the ladder and into the Dark Space. Transform into Freedan if you
    need to, then use Gaia to heal up and save.
    
    Exit the Dark Space and go west to the three pillars arranged like the
    vertices of a triangle. Stand on the central tile to soon be blown away to
    another ledge. There, go through the door for your first true boss.
    
    =============================================================================
                                    BOSS: Castoth
                                        HP: 40
    =============================================================================
    
    I would prefer that you use Freedan for this boss. Using him makes the fight
    so much easier because of the range of his sword and the fact that he is twice
    as powerful as Will. Anyhow, we'll begin by describing your boss's attacks.
    
    He can use a lightning-fire attack that bounces around the room. Only one is
    activate at any given time. It is fairly easy to avoid, so long as you keep an
    eye on it.
    
    There is another attack that requires his claws. He'll basically try to scratch
    you or something. Stay against the wall to avoid it.
    
    Another attack involves a stream of fire going down the path. Stay against the
    wall to avoid it.
    
    Finally, your boss can shoot lasers from his head. For some reason, despite the
    range of the lasers, staying in the southwest/southeast corners works just fine
    to live through it. You'll notice this when he starts to shake a fair deal.
    
    Anyhow, onto business. Our first goal should be to remove the hands. As soon as
    possible, move around to the southwest corner of the pit (not the room) and get
    against the wall. Quickly tap Up on the D-Pad to turn around and rapidly start
    slashing at your opponent's hands. During this time, keep aware of the
    lightning-fire attack. After five hits from Freedan, the hand will be gone.
    Repeat this with the other hand.
    
    For a few seconds after removing Castoth's hands, just dodge his attacks for
    a bit. Eventually, his eyes will widen and you should get against the central
    wall, quick-tap Up on the D-Pad, and start slicing up his face. This will keep
    you from the fire-line attack. All you have to watch for at this point is the
    lightning-fire attack and his lasers. Remember, once he starts to shake a lot,
    head to the southwest/southeast corners.
    
    After the lasers are done with, you'll have to get rid of his hands once more.
    Remove them as before, then continue to the head again, also as before.
    Continue this until the boss is finished.
    
    ~~~
    
    After the battle, you'll transform back into Will. A door will open up on the
    north side of the room. Go through it and down the corridor. Jump through the
    hole at the end to find the Incan Gold Ship.

    |_____________________________________________________________________________|
    
    Upon arriving, head east. You can speak with the Incans if you want, though it
    does very little other than reveal that they think you are their shortened
    king. (I'm surprised they're still alive. Or so we'll see.) Go down the stairs
    to the inside of the ship and to the far eastern side. The Incan queen will
    mistake you for her husband upon speaking to her (and yet explain things you
    would know IF you WERE the king). Anyhow, after the conversation, go back to
    the west side of the room and downstairs. Go to the east side of that room to
    find a chest.
    
    Open the chest now and you'll find a Mystic Statue. Afterwards, go back
    upstairs and west onto the deck. Climb up the ladder to the crow's nest to your
    west and speak with the man up there, which prompts the ship to begin moving.
    Go back to the level of the deck, inside, and climb up onto the bed. You'll
    then watch Will's dream, which is a a conversation between him and Shira, his
    mother.
    
    After that, when you are woken up, you find that the ship has suddenly aged
    greatly and all of the Incans are dead. Oh, the horror!  </sarcasm>  You will
    also find Lilly, Erik, Kara, Seth, and Lance to be aboard the ship. Get onto
    the deck and speak with Seth to get the Red Jewel. NOTE THAT IF YOU DON'T GET
    IT NOW, YOU'LL NEVER GET THIS RED JEWEL EVER AGAIN. Return into the ship and go
    to the east side of the room. Examine the Queen's skeleton for a cutscene.
    After it, head west onto the deck for another cutscene.

    (Throughout this thing, keep an eye on your HP. It is more of an easter egg or
     paradox than anything. Basically, as you go on, your HP decreases due to
     hunger, which pretty much never occurs otherwise.)
    
    Anyhow, upon awakening, speak with Kara. After the conversation, which will
    possibly reveal that you've been out cold for about half a day, go into your
    item menu. Equip and use the Meat.
    
    The next day, speak with Kara and then smack a fish with the flute. Kara will
    scold you and you'll just have to do some waiting.
    
    On Day 4, speak with Kara twice and a jar will float up to the raft. Examine it
    to learn out that someone you'll meet soon, named Sam, is in trouble due to
    some crud about slavery. Speak with Kara two more times to finish this day.
    
    Later, on Day 8 or so, you'll note your low HP level. (Remember my initial
    note? Kara wouldn't let you eat fish, so...) Stand on the northwest corner of
    the driftwood and keep smacking the fish for food while Kara's back is turned.
    Examine the fish and continue this until your HP is full. Speak with Kara and,
    after that, smack some more fish and Kara will finally decide to eat fish.
    
    On Day 12, pretty much follow the plot until the next day.
    
    On Day 18, you'll pretty much do the same. When the sharks come, just wait,
    as they won't attack you. (And you can't hit them.)
    
    On the final day (Day 21 or 28, I think), Will will suddenly fall unconscious
    and narrate a bit of the story for you. You'll soon end up on land after a
    bit.

    You'll shortly listen to a conversation, basically saying that Will fell
    unconscious due to the scurvy (a lack of vitamin C). Anyhow, upon awakening,
    speak with Kara. After that conversation, leave the house and go east. Examine
    the pot for a Red Jewel, then go speak with Kara again. Now just leave town and
    head to Freejia.

    As you enter this new town, you'll be coerced by a stranger to stay at the
    hotel. A wise decision, indeed. Why? Well, begin by following the man and Kara
    to the hotel and going inside. There, you'll find Lilly! After the quick talk,
    go upstairs and to the far room. Examine the pot for a Red Jewel.
    
    Go outside and to the far east. Nearby is a door; stand one space to the west
    of it and go due south. You'll jump into the grass. Follow this path to a
    previously-unseen area. Speak with purple-clothed man there to obtain another
    Red Jewel.
    
    Return to the main street and head to the western side of town. As you do, take
    note of the northbound alleyway. Go along it and examine an overturned trash
    can to receive an HP Jewel, which is basically the same as the HP Upgrades from
    the previous dungeons.
    
    Ignore the purple-clothed people back here and simply head to the east of the
    ones near the trash can. You'll find a doorway into a house. Go inside to find
    a Dark Space; use it if you want. Exit the building and go east until a man
    blocks your path. Go into the building nearest this location and head upstairs
    and to the roof. Jump off of the eastern ledge to bypass the impeding man from
    earlier.
    
    Go towards the northeastern corner of the area and you'll find a doorway into a
    slave trading cave. Inside, speak with the purple-cloaked man on the left and
    you'll be allowed in. Speak with the prisoners to eventually learn that Erik is
    in town, as a laborer, and is in the westernmost house of the back alleys,
    kidnapped.
    
    Anyhow, go outside and south. Head up the ladder and jump off this roof to
    another, then enter the house. Speak with the laborer behind the plant and
    leave. Go back to the western alleyway from earlier and speak with the two
    purple-cloaked individuals. Tell them where the laborer is for a Red Jewel.
    Go to the western portion of this back alley and to the house where a person
    keeps slamming the door. Once such happens, examine the door to hear Erik.
    Smack the door with your flute to knock it down (O_o) and barge on in. Speak
    with Erik to learn of the Diamond Mine.
    
    After this, return to the city entrance and go into the house nearest it. Go
    to the east side of the roof to find Gem. Hand over your Red Jewels to get a
    Strength upgrade if you have ten or more Red Jewels -- you can have a total of
    fourteen by now.
    
    That's it. Head out of town, heading for the Diamond Mine.

    |____________________|______|_________________________|_______________________|
    
    Soon after arriving in the mine, you'll find a Green Lizard. Defeat him and
    continue along to a Brown Land Worm. Defeat it, too, much like the Tentacle
    Eyes from Edward's Prison. Continue along some more to two Green Lizards and
    another Brown Land Worm, then another Green Lizard. Defeat all of the enemies
    in this room, with the last-mentioned enemy being your last, to augment your
    HP. Go through the doorway in the corner afterwards.
    
    Here, go east to find a Green Lizard. Defeat it and take note of the elevator
    nearby. We'll use it, but not just yet. Continue for another Green Lizard, with
    another one to your west. After that Green Lizard, speak with the prisoner.
    Strike his chains to release him. Afterwards, go north to find a new enemy, the
    Floating Eyeball. Beware its laser beams, which CANNOT be blocked
    telekinetically, and hurry up and defeat it. Go west and north to another Green
    Lizard, then east and south to another. You should be spotting some Floating
    Eyeballs nearby now. Ignore them, but dodge their lasers. Go to the east side
    of their little pen and defeat the Brown Land Worm, which releases the Floating
    Eyeballs. Pop 'em, then go east and to the southwest to find another pair of
    Floating Eyeballs. Head into the eastern enclosure to find a Green Lizard among
    the three Brown Land Worms. Defeat them and free the prisoner as before to get
    some useful advice.
    
    Afterwards, go south to two Floating Eyeballs. Defeat them and the Brown Land
    Worm nearby, then head east and north to find your Herb within a treasure
    chest. Go back south and west to find -- you guessed it -- a Green Lizard and
    a Brown Land Worm. Go north to find another of the latter, with a Green Lizard
    and a Brown Land Worm atop the ramp nearby. After the slaughter, hit the switch
    nearby and go southwest. Stand in front of the rock nearby -- it is differently
    colored -- to find a Brown Land Worm. Defeat it for your Strength augmentation,
    then hit the switch nearby. Also go northwest to find and hit another switch,
    which opens a path forward. Go to it and utilize it.
    
    In the next area, go east and defeat the Green Lizard. Go across the bridge and
    west to find another Green Lizard. Go south to a Floating Eyeball. Defeat it,
    then go northwest and downstairs. Ignore the side path and continue west to
    find a Brown Land Worm. Defeat it, as well as the Green Lizard to your north.
    Now, head to the northeast corner here and look for a tile that ruffles Will's
    hair a bit. Psycho Dash at the proper tile to find a prisoner; for freeing him,
    you'll obtain three Red Jewels at once, all sent to Gem.
    
    Go east now and defeat the Brown Land Worm to get a Defense increase, as well
    as access to a Dark Space. Go inside and use Gaia to heal and save, then use
    the statue on the left to transform into Freedan. Exit the Dark Space and go
    around and through the side path we previously skipped.
    
    Go south and west to find a wooden maze kind of deal. Go along it and defeat
    all of the enemies -- one Brown Land Worm, two Green Lizards, three Floating
    Eyeballs -- as you cross it. On the other side, head east and upstairs, then
    across the pair of ramps. Afterwards, go north and dispatch the Brown Land
    Worm. Go down the ramp or the stairway nearby, then dispatch the pair of Brown
    Land Worms and the Green Lizard nearby. Go east and through the doorway after
    you've dealt with them.
    
    Go forward to the inactive Floating Eyeballs, which activate when you get
    near them. After defeating them (or just the northwest one), the path ahead
    will open up. Go along it, defeating a pair of Floating Eyeballs and Green
    Lizards on the way. In the northeast corner, you'll also find a Green Lizard,
    which opens up the path ahead upon his death. Continue along and defeat the
    two Brown Land Worms and the Floating Eyeball. This will open up the path
    ahead and give you an HP upgrade (upon defeating all enemies).
    
    Go north along the new path to find a Dark Space. Go inside and transform back
    into will. Go to the north wall, along the most-indented portion, and watch for
    Will's hair to wave in the wind. Once you find that tile, face the wall and hit
    it with a Psycho Dash. Go through to find another Dark Space. Inside, transform
    into Freedan and grab the Dark Frier -- erm... Dark Friar move for Freedan.
    This is a move that requires holding of the Attack button, much like with
    Will's Psycho Dash. This attack, however, releases a powerful beam of energy
    that shoots across the screen! Quite the useful ability, in my opinion.
    
    Anyhow, you'll need to do some backtracking. Once you reach the area with the
    two ramps, but the impeding wooden divider in-between, you're in the right
    spot. Go down a ramp and hug the northern wall to make a Brown Land Worm
    appear. Use Dark Friar on it to defeat it and remove the divider, in addition
    to augmenting your Defense. Use the ramp again, this time going all of the way
    across, then go through the unused doorway.
    
    In this next room, free the laborer to obtain the Elevator Key. You'll need to
    backtrack to the elevator room from earlier. There is a shortcut, though. Back
    in the room with the four switches, go to the west strip to jump on down. Go
    to the elevator, now, and use the Elevator Key. Go into the next area. There,
    go south and west, onto the wooden lift, and across the gap.
    
    After crossing the gap, go south to find three holes, only two of which you
    can access. Take the western one. Go around the room, fighting all six Purple
    Land Worms - I believe they were in the corners and the north/south-central
    areas. After defeating all six, your Strength will increase. Go to the
    southeastern corner and examine the sparkly thing to find the Mine Key A.
    
    Return to the previous room and go into the eastern room. Here, traverse the
    wooden maze. As you do, defeat the five Green Lizards and four Floating
    Eyeballs. At the end, liberate the laborer for the Mine Key B. Go back to the
    previous area, use the Keys on the gate, and go to the next area.
    
    There, you'll find some more laborers to free. Sam, who was the laborer from
    the note at sea and the laborer in the trading cave, will teach the Memory
    Melody. This new melody can remedy Lance's amnesia. He'll also take away two
    items you won't need anymore.
    
    Now, you'll need to do some backtracking to Freejia. Fun.

    After arriving from the Diamond Mine, with the Memory Melody, go into the
    hotel. Near Lance, use the Memory Melody to remedy Lance's amnesia and you'll
    receive some conversation to read. Afterwards, speak with Erik. You'll then
    decide to visit Neiol, an inventor, and Will's long-lost cousin.

                                    Neil's Cottage
    )))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
    
    Upon arriving, Neil and Will will greet each other. After a short conversation,
    you'll have to change out Neil's four inventions, which are crappier versions
    of their modern-day counterparts. There is an oxygen tank (only allows a minute
    underwater), an airplane wing, a telescope, and a camera (30-minute developing
    while the picture becomes a picture) from left to right. Examine them and speak
    with Neil. Opt to head on over to the Nazca Painting.

    )))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
    
    Figure I'd give an update. As per actual history, the Nazcas were an ancient
    civilization that lived on the west coast of South America, primarily where
    modern-day Peru is. They are quite well-known for their large ground paintings,
    or geoglyphs, of animals. These weren't actually discovered until the 1900s or
    so. I can assume this game is actually taking place around 1000 ~ 1500, so...
    You know. Just thought I'd impart some knowledge to you.
    
    Anyhow, upon arriving, the group will split up, for the most part, and check
    out the Nazca painting of a condor. Speak with everyone. Speak with Kara and
    follow her, then speak with her again. Head to the southwestern corner of the
    area to find a spirit not unlike that of the Moon Tribe. Follow it until it
    disappears, then head to the northern part of the area.
    
    Here, speak with Neil and you'll learn that the stones are actually placed in
    relation to the Cygnus constellation. (Cygnus is the constellation of the
    swan. In 1993, one year before the making of this game, one its stars proceeded
    into the nova phase. Why do I mention that? Remember back and continue in the
    game.)
    
    Now, remember back you were drifting at sea with Kara and saw a red star in the
    constellation of Cygnus? (Red stars are often in the nova phase, hint hint.)
    Well, you are now asked to learn where the star was in relation to the painting
    of the condor - it was at its left foot. Go there and, once everyone is
    standing around something, examine it and you'll be teleported away.

    Our first dungeon with over 100 enemies in it. Nice, or not so much, depending
    on how you look at it.
    
    Anyhow, you'll start on a platform high up in the air. You can go around this
    specific area and speak with the Moon Tribe ghosts to learn some things. You
    can also head to the northwestern corner to find a Dark Space. There are also
    four paths springing out from this area. Take the northeastern path first,
    although it may not really matter all too much, which is why I provided the
    little boxes.
    
    O=====================O
    |  Northeast Section  |
    O=====================O
    
    Upon arriving, go south to find two of the Ball Snakes. Smack 'em good, then
    continue going south, avoiding the lasers from the Blue Sentries as you do.
    At the U-turn sort of area, you'll have to fight off another Ball Snake duo.
    Now continue north to find a pair of Blue Sentries. Approach them from the
    left or right, then attack, continuing such from the very front, to avoid
    damage. (Note that lasers cannot be blocked via telekinesis, but the rocket
    punches can.) Once they're defeated, start charging up a Psycho Dash.
    
    Next up, head further along the path to another two Blue Sentries. Hit one
    with the Psycho Dash, then defeat both of them as you did earlier. Go upstairs
    to the higher platform, then defeat the two Ball Snakes. Go down the other
    staircase and continue along, defeating the four Ball Snakes and two Blue
    Sentries as you go. Be sure to grab the Red Jewel from the higher, northeastern
    platform. Go to the southern portion of the area to find a ledge. Jump.
    
    Here, you'll be in the Back Sky Garden. First, head north to find two Red
    Sentries (dumber, but stronger versions of the Blue Sentries). Defeat them in
    a similar manner, then go further north to a Jumping Ball Snake. Beware the
    balls that fall when it dies, then go northeast. Here, in this general area,
    you'll fight two Jumping Ball Snakes, one per side alcove, and two Red Sentries
    along the main path. Once they're dealt with, go south and east.
    
    Go along this path in a general southward direction, being wary of the
    undefeatable fireballs bouncing off the walls. You'll soon reach a Red Sentry.
    Defeat it, go to the other side of the room, then go to the other side of the
    next room to find a Jumping Ball Snake. Go south of this room to another Red
    Sentry. Defeat it and take the south path to a Jumping Ball Snake. Return to
    the intersection, go east to the next room, then south off the ledge.
    
    Here, you'll find a Blue Sentry nearby. Defeat it, then grab the Herb from the
    chest. Return back to the Back Sky Garden, return to the intersection, and take
    the west path. Go along it to finish off the final two Jumping Ball Snakes of
    this particular area. Doing so will net you a Defense boost. Continue to the
    ledge and to the other side.
    
    Here, go over to the Ball Snake and defeat it for an HP upgrade. Walk over to
    the statue nearby and activate it, probably striking it to do so. The sword the
    statue holds will then be released to try and cut you. Hit it with your flute a
    few times to get rid of it. Use your telekinetic abilities to move the statue
    out of the way, then grab the Crystal Ball from the chest.
    
    Backtrack back to the start and put the Crystal Ball into a hole in the floor.
    Go to another path now, preferably the southeast path.
    
    O=====================O
    |  Southeast Section  |
    O=====================O
    
    Go south now, defeating the Ball Snake as you do. Further south, you'll need to
    circle around to find and kill a Blue Sentry. Do so and climb the ladder. Cross
    the ledge and go back up the ladder. Here, kill the Blue Sentry to the north,
    and the one next it on another path. From there, go south to find a ramp and a
    sword-holding statue. Ignore the statue and jump go up the ramp, then use it to
    cross the large gap.
    
    On the other side, go north to find another Ball Snake. Defeat it and hit the
    statue nearby. Defeat its sword by hitting it a few times, then move the statue
    to find a semi-hidden room. Go inside to find a Dark Space. Heal, save, and
    transform into Freedan within it, then exit the Dark Space and the room it is
    in.
    
    Outside, as Freedan, go east and defeat the Ball Snakes and the Blue Sentry.
    Jump off of the ledge nearby to reach the Back Sky Garden.
    
    Go east and defeat the Jumping Ball Snake, then further east is another pair.
    After that pair, start charging up a Dark Friar. Proceed over to the Red Sentry
    and start firing Dark Friars at it until it is dead. (By the way, attack from
    the north. It does two hits like that, for some reason.) Go east and off of the
    ledge.
    
    In the regular garden, go east and defeat the four Ball Snakes you find on the
    way. Charge up another Dark Friar and proceed to the Blue Sentry. Defeat it,
    striking after the Dark Friar as needed, and you'll get a Strength upgrade. The
    south path also opens up, so go that way to the Back Sky Garden via the ledge
    there.
    
    Once you arrive once more, go west and kill the Jumping Ball Snake trio. Then
    head east to find three Red Sentries with a Jumping Ball Snake among them.
    Next, chrge up a Dark Friar and go north. Hit the Red Sentry with it, then
    proceed to finish it off. Once that happens, enjoy your HP boost. The chest
    will also get unblocked, so head on over to it for a second Crystal Ball.
    
    Backtrack to the beginning of the area with the spirits, insert the Crystal
    Ball into a slot, then go along the southwest path.
    
    O=====================O
    |  Southwest Section  |
    O=====================O
    
    Upon arriving, head south and defeat the Ball Snake. Go west for another two
    of them, as well as a Blue Sentry. Defeating the latter will open up a path
    north. Follow it, killing the Ball Snakes as you do. At the end, jump off of
    the ledge to the Back Sky Garden.
    
    Upon arriving back here, go west and to the chest; you'll find a Red Jewel
    within it. Go east and hit the switch, then return to the main garden.
    
    Back here, head west and eliminate the ground-level Blue Sentry. Defeating it
    creates access to the other two via a staircase. (As if I needed it.) Defeat
    the two Blue Sentries at the top, then go south and defeat the Ball Snake to
    make a shortcut. Then head west for a Blue Sentry trio. Their deaths will net
    you a Defense boost. Go north, over the ledge, and to the Back Sky Garden.
    There, look around for a switch. Use a Dark Friar to hit from outside the
    pillar enclosure, then return to the main garden.
    
    Back here, you can go into the Dark Space, but don't switch back. Just use it
    to heal and/or save. Go south and east to run down a ramp. You'll see some
    statues. Telekinetically move one closer to you to make a path, then circle
    back and run down the big ramp, never stopping. On the other side of the area,
    more or less, go to the Back Sky Garden.
    
    Here, go east and north, charging a Dark Friar as you do. Hit the Red Sentry
    you come across with it, then finishing it with your sword, to defeat it and
    open up the path ahead. Go east and slice up the two Jumping Ball Snakes, then
    head south to find another Red Sentry ripe for the slaughter.
    
    See that switch the last-mentioned Red Sentry was on? Well, first go east and
    defeat sword of the statue. Then telekinetically move the statue onto the
    switch. Begig charging up a Dark Friar and head east and north. Defeat the
    trio of Red Sentries here with a combination of Dark Friar(s) and/or sword
    slashes. Upon their death, your Strength will be augmented yet again.
    
    Now, go two rooms west, one south, and one west. Use the ledge here to return
    to the main garden. There, move the statues out of the way of the ramp 
    telekinetically, then go up to the ramp's peak. Run to the far west side of the
    area to find your chest. Open it for Crystal Ball number three!
    
    Now, backtrack to the start of the dungeon. There, insert your new Crystal Ball
    into a hole and go for the northwestern path next.
    
    O=====================O
    |  Northwest Section  |
    O=====================O
    
    Upon arriving, go south and murder the Blue Sentry. Go upstairs and down the
    ramp. As you run, hold Up on the D-Pad to use the ramp properly. On the other
    side of the abyss, go west and defeat the two Blue Sentries as you go. Also be
    sure to take out the local Ball Snake nearby, and use a Dark Friar on the Blue
    Sentry past the barrier. Then go north to find a Ball Snake. Defeat it and
    ignore the ramp; just use the ledge to go to the Back Sky Garden.
    
    There, defeat the two Jumping Ball Snakes and return to the main garden. Yeah,
    that's all back there ... for now.
    
    Remember the ramp we sort of skipped? Go up the stairs next to it and go down.
    As you are in the air the first time, immediately hold Left or Down,
    preferably, on the D-Pad. We don't want to cross the second ramp. On this path,
    head south, killing the two Ball Snakes on the way. At the end, use the ledge
    to reach the Back Sky Garden.
    
    There, go east and defeat the trio of Jumping Ball Snakes. Go north, taking the
    first possible westbound branch. Go along it, killing the Jumping Ball Snake on
    the way, with another pair further west. Go north for the final one of this
    dungeon. You'll also find a Dark Space. Use it to heal and/or save, not to
    transform (unless you're NOT Freedan), and leave it.
    
    Backtrack now: go south, circle around to the east and to the intersection,
    then south. Back here, go to the southeast and defeat the Red Sentry and the
    Jumping Ball Snake. Go west, south, and east to find a pair of Jumping Ball
    Snakes and a Red Sentry. Defeat 'em all, then start charging a Dark Friar.
    Go east and hit the statue with the Dark Friar to release the sword. Destroy
    it by hitting it, then pull it north with a quick tap of L/R. Get on the west
    side of it, then pull it onto the switch. Proceed into the newly-opened area.
    
    There, take out both Red Sentries to obtain a Defense augmentation. Go off of
    the local ledge to go to the main garden again.
    
    Ignore the ramp when you disembark and first go northeast for a Ball Snake,
    northwest for another with a Blue Sentry. Return to the ramp and use it,
    holding Up on the D-Pad while you go. On the other side of the gap, open the
    chest to find a Herb.
    
    Drop down from the platform, defeat the Blue Sentry, then go north and dispatch
    the Ball Snakes. This should net you an HP upgrade. Use the ledge here to go
    back to the Back Sky Garden. There, go east and south to another ledge, back to
    the main garden.
    
    Here, go up the ramp, then run down it. Hold Down on the D-Pad as you go to hit
    the other ramp over the gap. Defeat the statue's sword here, then move the
    statue away from the chest. Inside, you'll find a Crystal Ball, your last one
    if you've followed this walkthrough. Now, to some backtracking...
    
    Drop down from the ledge and go north and west to the Back Sky Garden. Go east,
    north, east, and north some more to find a ledge. Drop down it and go back to
    the main garden. Go up the ramp and all of the way across the gap, then back to
    the start.
    
    O===========================O
    |  The Rest of the Dungeon  |
    O===========================O
    
    Once you have received all four Crystal Balls, return to the start area and
    place them into the empty hole or holes, depending on whether you ended up
    putting them as you went or not. Anyways, utilize the Dark Space afterwards to
    heal and save. Go to a previous Dark Space if you are not Freedan, then go up
    the new bridge in the main area to find your next boss.
    
    =============================================================================
                                     BOSS: Viper
                                        HP: 40
    =============================================================================
    
    This boss starts with you having to run up a collapsing bridge. It is short and
    not exactly easy to fall off of, so don't worry. You'll see your boss on the
    other side.
    
    Weird name for a bird, eh?
    
    Anyhow, we'll first describe your opponent's attacks. He'll fly around the area
    a bit before an attack. One attack is a spinning feather you can out-run. It
    will split up eventually into four feathers that you can out-walk.
    
    Another attack is a stream of feathers, which can only be fired to the
    southwest, south, or southeast. Try to stay out of the bird's way for this
    one. It also makes your opponent remain still, so if you already were out of
    the way, take this as a free pass to do some damage.
    
    Another attack involves the opponent's firing of six feathers in one direction.
    As with the previous attack, stay out of the way, generally out of his direct
    facing.
    
    To defeat your opponent, it will be a mostly dodge-and-slash sort of deal. A
    long one at that - just get him when you can, and charge Dark Friars when you
    can't.
    
    ~~~
    
    After the battle, you'll transform back into Will, if applicable. Jump off of
    the platform using the entrance ledge, then you'll watch a few scenes. After
    them, you'll be in the second dungeon in a row.

    I'll go ahead and note that there is absolutely no need to defeat any of the
    enemies here. Not any need whatsoever. You'll get no upgrades, and meager
    amounts of DP. Only worry about them when they're in the way, or you want to
    seriously grind for the extra lives.
    
    Anyhow, upon arriving, go east. You'll find a skeleton as you go. Ignore it --
    it can't hurt you, and you can't hurt it. Literally -- smack it with your
    flute and watch. Continue east to find the Dark Space. Ignore unless you want
    to save (you shouldn't have to heal yet). Continue east, ignoring the stairs,
    and heading into the next room.
    
    There, you'll find a ghosty Kara. Ignore her and just open the chest for a Red
    Jewel. Leave the room and go downstairs.
    
    Here, go to the west and ignore the skeletons. You'll soon find two stairways.
    Go the western one and go into the next room to the east to find a Red Jewel
    within a chest. Speak with the ghost Erik in the opposite room if you want,
    then head back downstairs twice.
    
    Go to the far eastern end of the room, ignoring the two stairwells, and into
    the room there. You'll find Lilly, who will now accompany Will. Return to the
    previous room and go into the first possible staircase. There, go west to the
    other staircase and use it, then repeat once more.
    
    Here, go east to find some Blue Slimes. Pass or defeat them, and continue to
    the end of the hall to find two staircases. Take the eastern one to find three
    coffins. Examine the westernmost one and Lilly will enter it, giving you the
    Purify Stone. Return downstairs and take the other staircase.
    
    Here, go west. Defeat or ignore the Gray Blobs as you go. Take the farthest
    staircase to find a Red Jewel in a chest. Go back downstairs and east to the
    other staircase. Use it and go west to find Lance and Neil, if you want. Go
    east in the room with the staircase and take the staircase at the end.
    
    Here, you'll find quite the weird pool, which was one of the few features I
    could vividly remember from my days of playing this when I was four. (Though
    how I got this far is beyond me.)  *coughs*  Anyhow, equip the Purify Stone,
    get next to the pool of water, and use the Stone. This will eliminate all of
    the enemies from this area, replacing them with a bunch of humans that were
    previously enslaved and made into monsters. You also will not find the ghost
    versions of your group.
    
    Go west, take the first staircase upstairs. Then go east and use the stairs
    at the end. Then go west, up the staircase, into the far doorway, and east and
    up the far staircase. Go east and upstairs again, then west and the first
    staircase down. Speak with the man here for a Palace Key. Exit the room, go
    west and upstairs, then east and upstairs to return to the top floor. Save and
    heal at the Dark Space, then go to the far west side. Use the Palace Key on the
    door to reach a long corridor, after which you'll find Mu.

    Upon arriving in your third consecutive dungeon, and the most annoying thus
    far, go east and defeat the Blue Slimes. Then head south and deal with the
    Golem - beware its sporadic rocks tosses; block them with telekinesis. Go south
    some more and defeat the two Blue Slimes, then continue to the south border of
    the area for another Blue Slime. Circle left for a Golem, then defeat it. This
    will make a passage ahead open up. Use it.
    
    Go east now and dispatch the three Blue Slimes, then continue forward to a pair
    of Golems. Defeat them and continue along the path, exiting to the right when
    possible.
    
    Here, walk some more eastward to find the ever-annoying Wraith. It will
    teleport around randomly, shooting non-linear lasers. Hit the thing when
    possible, and telekinetically block when you can't. Repeat until dead. After
    that, go southeast to find a Golem near a treasure chest. Ignore the chest
    itself, as it is empty, but go ahead and shatter the Golem. Go north and east
    from here to find a Wraith amongst three Blue Slimes. You'll also find a ring
    of energy here - generally, just ignore these unless I state otherwise. They
    can be moved with physical attacks or telekinesis, and merely bounce you at a
    high speed opposite of the direction you approach it. Anyhow, start charging a
    Psycho Dash and go southeast to find two Golems. Defeat them.
    
    Go south to find another energy ring. Telekinetically pull it out of the path
    and advance south to defeat the Blue Slime. Go further south and carefully work
    your way along this mini-maze, defeating the Gray Blobs as you do. As you do
    that, the path ahead will open up more and more. After the mini-maze, go south
    and west to find two Golems. Defeat them one at a time, then go west from the
    original encounter point for a Blue Slime. Then proceed further westward to the
    next area.
    
    Here, go southeast to find a few retracting spikes. Wait for them to retract
    before dashing across (you can cross both if you dash) -- just don't touch the
    spikes, as these will damage you. Defeat the Blue Slime ahead, then go east.
    Ignore the northern doorway, but do note it, as we'll need to come back here
    shortly. Go east to find a Wraith. Defeat it, then telekinetically pull the
    southern energy ring to you.
    
    Proceed along the previously-blocked path southward. When you reach the fork,
    begin by first going south. Defeat the Golem pair, then go south and west.
    Defeat the Gray Blobs (five in all) along this path. Once you reach the
    intersection, go north and defeat the Golem and the Wraith. (Be sure to block
    attacks with telekinesis. It is too cramped here to do any form of dodging.)
    Continue along this path, defeating another five Gray Blobs. Then backtrack to
    the intersection.
    
    From there, pretty much just go west to the next area. Ignore the chest on the
    way, as it, too, is empty. In the next area, you'll find naught but too
    statues. Find the area where their facings intersect, and examine the area
    around there to find a Statue of Hope. return to the previous area. Backtrack
    to the southeast corner, then the northeast corner, then head west back to the
    room we skipped earlier.
    
    Inside this Room of Hope, go north to the altar. Equip the Statue of Hope and
    "use" it to place it there. A few ghosts will soon appear, giving you a weird
    message. (Rama is not, in reality, a sun god of any sort. He is merely a hero
    depicted in Hindu religious works.) Anyhow, after that scene, exit the area to
    find a lower level of the area to be accessible, as the water there has
    receded!
    
    Outside, go east and down the ramp. Continue forward some, defeating the four
    Blue Slimes here, then go back up the ramp. Go west and north to the previous
    area.
    
    Here, go east and north. Defeat or otherwise hurt the Wraith on your way to the
    ramp. At it, go down, west, and south. Defeat the Golem and head west, dashing
    over the spikes once they recede. Nearby, you'll find a Dark Space. Go inside
    and transform into Freedan. Leave the Dark Space, after saving and/or healing,
    and head north. Defeat the three Blue Slimes, then backtrack to the ramp. Go
    south, west, and south some more to the next area.
    
    Here, go south and east to find a Golem and a Blue Slime. Dispatch both of
    them, then go south at the next fork. Defeat the Blue Slime, then charge up a
    Dark Friar. Use multiple Dark Friars to defeat the Golem atop the blue
    incline, then run south into the energy ring. After bouncing into it, hold Up
    on the D-Pad to get where the Golem was. Go to the other side of the platform
    and downstairs. Down here, watch for a Wraith and defeat it when you can. West
    of that area is the exit to the next one. Use it.
    
    In this area, go west to find another five Blue Slimes. Four of them are inside
    some rock pens, with one being free. Dispatch the ones that are trapped (as you
    can reach them, but not the other way around) before attacking the free one --
    doing so frees the other four. After getting rid of the Blue Slimes, head
    southwest to the next area.
    
    Here, defeat the Blue Slime from afar with a Dark Friar, if you'd prefer, then
    go along the path. Stand east of the first switch, smack it with the sword,
    then dash along the path and past the spikes. Redo this if you failed to pass
    then spikes, then proceed east and to the next area.
    
    As you enter, start charging up a Dark Friar. Go along the path east-ish and
    watch out for a Wraith. Hit it with a Dark Friar, then finish it with a simple
    few sword slices if it is needed. That's pretty much it for this area. Proceed
    along the linear path to the southwest corner and the next area.
    
    Here, go west to find two more Blue Slimes. Continue along this path, killing
    the remaining two Blue Slimes as you go. Additionally, beware the multi-colored
    laser balls -- only try passing them when they are almost fully retracted.
    Once you exit this narrow path, go north to the next area.
    
    Here, go into the Dark Space further ahead. Head on over to the Will statue to
    transform into him and to get the Psycho Slider technique, one of the best
    methods of attack in the game. To use it, simply press your Attack button
    whilst dashing. This can do serious damage to enemies, as it is slightly more
    powerful than your standard flute smack, and can often hit enemies twice. You
    can also use it to slide beneath gaps in walls and such. Anyhow, be sure you
    have transformed into Will, then heal and save. Exit the Dark Space.
    
    Outside, we need to start backtracking a bit. Go south, past the narrow path
    as before, then head east. Go north when possible to find a gap beneath the
    wall. Psycho Slide beneath it to the other side. Then go east, south, west,
    south, and east to find an energy ring. Smack it back to the ramp you skipped
    earlier, which you couldn't have gone up anyways without it. Put the ring
    south of the ramp and trampoline off of it, holding Up on the D-Pad you go
    northward, to the ledge above.
    
    Here, go west and get rid of the Blue SLime, then continue and defeat the two
    Gray Blobs and the Golem. Further along, you'll find the next pair of Gray
    Blobs. Then head south from there for a whopping four Golems. Better start
    learning to abuse the Psycho Slider move, and/or try to make them move north,
    though they rarely do. After the battle, head west to find another three Gray
    Blobs. This will end up revealing a statue here.
    
    Head south and west from there. Go past the spikes and defeat the Blue Slime.
    Go past the next coupling of spikes and defeat the Golem to reveal a second
    statue. Go north and defeat the Blue Slime to finally receive a stat boost,
    this one for Strength.  *phew*  You'll be getting some more of them soon
    enough, don't worry.
    
    Backtrack to the spot where the statues' facings intersect -- it is in a gap
    between the rocks next the spikes. Examine the proper spot for a Statue of
    Hope. Go east, past the spikes, then north. Go west, south, east, and down the
    incline. Go east, north, and west. Psycho Slide beneath the hole from earlier.
    
    Here, go west to the next area. Hit the switch here to lower the spikes and go
    along the path, exiting to the north. In the next area, go north and up the
    ramp. Defeat the Blue Slime and Psycho Slide beneath the gap here. Go west and
    north.
    
    You'll soon reach a down-going ramp. Use it, go east, then north to the next
    and final Room of Hope. As before, place the statue on the altar to lower the
    water in the dungeon to its lowest level, making (most of) the rest of the
    dungeon fully accessible. Yay.
    
    Go outside and south, down the ramp. Go to the chest to find a Red Jewel, then
    go up two ramps to the highest level, then southeast. Psycho Slide beneath the
    hole you used earlier, then go west. Descend the ramp, head east, then go down
    the next ramp. Head east to the next area.
    
    As you enter, prepare to fight another two Wraiths. After that battle, you
    should obtain a Defense augmentation. Afterwards, go north to the next area.
    There, go north. Take out the Wraith on the way, then head down the path to
    the east when possible. At the next turn, defeat the Blue Slime and continue
    to find a pait of Golems. Finish them off for a Strength upgrade. Open the
    chest nearby, for this one is NOT empty, and you'll obtain one of two Rama's
    Statues.
    
    Backtracking time! Go south, west, and south against to exit this portion of
    the area. Go south and west to the next area. There, go west and Psycho Slide
    beneath the gap. Defeat the Wraith nearby, then head southwest to find another
    one, as well as two Blue Slimes. Defeat them all for an HP upgrade.
    
    Go up the ramp nearby to find the Dark Space from earlier where you got the
    Psycho Slide. Heal and/or save there if you want.
    
    Anyhow, head to the north side of this area and to the next area. There, go
    further north and defeat the two Blue Slimes and the lone Wraith. Further north
    is a ramp. Go up it and go along this path, defeating the Golem as you go. To
    the east, you'll find a Golem, Blue Slime, and a chest. Defeat the two enemies
    for a second HP upgrade. Then open up the chest for the other Rama Statue. Go
    back down the ramp and south to the previous area.
    
    Here comes a load of backtracking, just to become Freedan, so get ready.
    
    Head south, then Psycho Slide beneath the gap to the east. Go east, up the
    ramp, then west and up another. Go east and Psycho Slide beneath the hole.
    Head east, north, then exit this area from the northeast corner. Go east,
    north, and east some more to the ramp. Go west, south, and west. Go past the
    spikes to find the Dark Space. Save/heal if you want, but be absolutely sure
    to transform into Freedan -- not a requirement, but REALLY recommended.
                                                        ¯¯¯¯¯¯
    Now, leave the Dark Space. Go east, past the spikes, and then head north, east,
    south, west, and south to the next area. Go south, east, south, and east again
    to a ramp. Use the energy ring to go up the ramp, then head over to the other
    of the ledge and downstairs. Go west to the next area. Exit that area by
    heading west and exiting to the southwest.
    
    In the next area, go south and defeat the Wraith. At the south border of the
    area, defeat the next Wraith for another Defense upgrade. Hit the switch and
    head to the other side of the path, and into the next area. Go east, south, and
    west to and through the exit. Then go west some more, then north to the next
    area after navigating the narrow path.
    
    Finally! You are back at the Psycho Slider Dark Space. Use it to heal and save,
    as what is probably the second-hardest boss in the game is coming up.
    
    Go south and down the ramp, then go south to the next area. There, continue
    south, then east to the next area. Continue following this linear path to find
    a larger-than-usual gap in the wall. Go into this room and insert the Rama's
    Statues on both altars. This ends up transforming the room.
    
    Head to the northern portion of the room now. Speak with the statue, who is
    Rama. After a quick conversation, have a quick conversation to get a story on
    the background of Mu. Rather depressing. It's about to get worse. Go speak
    with Rama again. You'll get a Mystic Statue and the path ahead will open. Go
    along it to the next area.
    
    =============================================================================
                                  BOSS: Vampire (x2)
                                     HP: 40 each
    =============================================================================
    
    First thing to note. Erik is in this room, and he has a bomb strapped to him.
    (No, he is not a suicide bomber.) He somehow became these vampires' hostage,
    and this bomb will go off in 140 seconds (that is a little over 2.3 minutes).
    Letting the timer run out will provide nothing for you but death - you don't
    even get to see an explosion.
    
    Anyhow, to the fight.
    
    Each vampire will be able to stand on an intersection to and fire off a line of
    fire or electricity on the paths around it. The blond vampire only fires off
    one shot, but the black-haired one will fire one off on every available path.
    These are quite fast and cannot be outrun. The only way to avoid them is get on
    another path.
    
    Another attack is more of a counterattack. Upon being hit, a vampire will emit
    four orbs of energy to circle around it. That is what makes this boss a pain --
    you have to hit, back up, and still avoid the elemental line above. What makes
    it worse is that the vampire will probably move around after the orbs start
    circling it and hit you. 
    
    Finally, the last attack this duo can use can only occur when they both are
    still alive. They will get opposite each other and make a big ball of energy
    that is obscenely powerful versus their other attacks. When you see it, dash
    over to the other side of the area. I'm not kidding - this will quickly
    eliminate your HP because there is very little delay between noticing what
    will happen and it happening.
    
    Your fight plan, otherwise, is pretty basic. Since we have two to go after,
    start with the dark-haired one, as he is more dangerous. Once the fight
    starts, go up to the vampire you want to go after and hit him about six-seven
    times, then run away. Continue tracking that one and, when possible, hit it
    two or three times, then back off again. Following this pattern will soon
    defeat your opponent. Repeat with the other one.
    
    Some final notes. Firstly, you see those little pits around the area?
    Freedan's sword can actually go across them horizontally, so consider this.
    Also, be prepared to use some Herbs in this fight. Not a bunch, just one or
    two. This boss will get pretty hectic pretty fast, so don't fear. If you
    somehow empty your supply to where you have less than three Herbs left, you
    better reset the game. You want to save their limited number (twelve total)
    for emergencies.
    
    ~~~
    
    After that tough battle, Freedan will soon transform into Will. Once he does,
    head over to the back of the bomb and examine it. Cut whichever wire you want,
    as it won't matter, to defuse the bomb. Afterwards, go south and out of the
    area. You'll watch some cutscenes before reaching the Seaside Tunnel.

                                    Seaside Tunnel
    )))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
    
    Just follow the cutscenes, really. One of the earlier scenes requires you,
    when they mention dinner, to find dinner. Just go east and examine the
    mushrooms. Then pretty much continue.

    After about a month within the Seaside Tunnel, your party will finally rise
    from belowground to find Angel Village. After the quick talk, go down the
    nearest well. Speak with Lance to advance the story - go ahead tell him to
    give Lilly a necklace. (Just do it, okay? And don't be completely freaked.
    These people are at least 14 ~ 15 years old.)
    
    *coughs*  Anyhow, speak with the other members of your party for some rather
    obvious facts, then exit the well. Go west to the next one to find the village
    itself. You may want to speak with the people around here to learn about them
    and such, and why they are like they are.
    
    Upon arriving, go to the easternmost stairwell and head down. Go west from
    there and go over the ledge, then into the next room. Examine the fountain for
    a Red Jewel. Leave the room and head west to find Gem. Speak with him and hand
    over your Red Jewel(s) to, if you have enough Red Jewels, get the Psycho Dash
    powerup. Woo-hoo.
    
    Continue by going into the staircase behind him. You'll find a room on the
    left. Go into it to find a Dark Space; use it to save. Then exit that room
    and go to the far right. Go through the big door to start looking for Kara and
    the artist Ishtar.

    Here, defeat the two Cave Bats and two Blue Skeletons, then return back
    upstairs. From there, go into the staircase on your immediate left. Here, back
    in the multi-doorway room, go into the rightmost doorway. Defeat the Cave Bat
    and the Blue Skeleton duo in there, then return upstairs. Go left and into the
    door with the flames on either side, with the flames blowing in opposite
    directions.
    
    Defeat the two Cave Bats, Blue Skeleton, and Immobile Lizard in here. Once you
    do, your HP will increase. Go into the next, and only, unused doorway. You'll
    be in a dark room, now. Be wary of the Cave Bats, and make sure you get all
    six of them. Go through the door at the far right side of the room when they
    are all dispatched and you've obtained a Strength boost.
    
    Here, in this supposed dead end, go to the right side of the room. Stand
    between the first and second flames, which just so happen to have flames
    blowing in opposite directions. Examine the spot between them to find a hidden
    stairwell. Use it.
    
    In this room, you'll find three Cave Bats, two Immobile Lizards, two Blue
    Skeletons, and one Skull Laser Gun. Defeat all eight of them to receive
    another Defense boost. Slide through the gap in the wall here to find a
    treasure chest. Open it up to obtain a Red Jewel, then Psycho Slide back out
    and go through the doorway nearby to find the Wind Tunnel.
    
    In here, you'll be completely buffeted by wind. Unless Will dashes or Psycho
    Slides, he will be slowly pushed against the wall. Go slowly forward to the
    first Skull Laser Gun. Psycho Slide into it (don't worry, you'll have enough
    recover time if you keep holding Right on the D-Pad). Repeat as needed until
    the enemy is dead, then repeat with the other one to get an HP boost. After
    that, just slowly continue through the door to your right.
    
    Go along this long corridor now. As you do, defeat the nine Cave Bats, six
    Skull Laser Guns, and the two Blue Skeletons. Once you eventually do, you'll
    get another Defense upgrade. Then Psycho Slide through the eastern gap.
    
    Here, go to the other side of the room, between the final two flames. Examine
    the spot there to find another hidden doorway. Use it to proceed forward. In
    the next area, go the ledge behind the right waterfall and to the other side.
    Go through the second door and examine the red jar on the left for a Red
    Jewel, then go into the rightmost door.
    
    There, speak with Ishtar to learn that he'll release Kara ... if Will can
    solve his puzzles. (It makes me wonder why Will just doesn't thoroughly whip
    him, though. *shrugs*) Anyhow, go through the northern door.
    
    Here, enter the first room and memorize the details. Exit and go into the next
    room. Select whatever has changed with the arrow cursor -- in this case, it is
    the lone eastern jar. It changed colors.
    
    For the next puzzle, repeat this. However, what changes this time is the jars
    to the left of Will.
    
    For the next puzzle, you need to open up the chest in the first room for an
    Herb. It is not only critical to the puzzle, but you'll lose it for good if you
    don't grab it now -- remember, only twelve are in the game!! For the next room,
    select the chest (seeing as you were given a hint by Ishtar) to be correct.
    Open it up for the Red Jewel, the difference between the two. (And, yes, you
    keep both treasures. ^_^)
    
    The next puzzle is quite possibly more of a fail than the rest. You won't
    notice anything different about the rooms, except the fact that, in the second
    room, wind is blowing Will's hair and clothes around.
    
    Exit the room now and head all of the way west to Ishtar's room. For some
    reason, he trapped himself in a painting. Open the chest for some Magic Dust,
    then leave this room to the waterfall room. Go into the room nearest the
    waterfalls and use the Magic Dust on the painting of Kara to free her.
    
    After a few more scenes, you'll be taken to the Floating City.

    In all honesty, when I saw "Floating City", I thought it meant in the air.
    *sigh*  Hm. It actually is kind of like Pacifidlog Town from the Pokemon
    Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald games, too.
    
    Anyhow, upon arriving, Will will tell you what happened since finishing up in
    Angel Village. You've taken up residency in the house of Luke, a fisherman that
    is letting you stay at his place while he goes fishing. In the house, leave.
    
    Outside, go south to the raft that can take you in four different directions.
    Head west and examine the northwesternmost pot to find a Red Jewel. Go into the
    house here, too, to find a Dark Space. Then go to the southeastern corner of
    the village to find the Gambling House. Enter and examine the northeastern pot
    here to find the other Red Jewel. You can also find Gem in here to get some
    upgrades, if you didn't get them due to lack of Red Jewels or something.
    
    Afterwards, return to the entrance of Luke's house, but don't go in. Go west
    to another raft and into that house. Speak with Lance and the other man, his
    amnesiac father, to get some info. (Wonder what happened to the Memory Melody?)
    Until talking until they repeat themselves, then exit and return inside Luke's
    house.
    
    After the cutscenes and you regain control, open up your inventory. You'll find
    "Lance's Letter" in there. Equip it and read it to learn that Lance went to
    the Great Wall of China. This was to find some medicine for his father, and
    the medicine is within, unbeknownst to him, a vile enemy known as the Sand
    Fanger.  *groans*  Go to the southernmost portion of town and leave to China's
    Great Wall.

    |____________________|______|_________________________|_______________________|
    
    Upon arriving at the Great Wall of China, head to the right. Defeat the Archer
    and the two Fireballs. Continue to an impassable ramp. Once there, use the
    stairwell nearby to go down. There, head to the left. Defeat the Fireball and
    the four Archers - the Psycho Slide is a valuable technique here. Regardless of
    HOW you took them down, you'll then need to go down the leftmost hole.
    
    Down in this corridor, proceed to the right side of the area, skipping all
    ladders and defeating the ten enemies (three Archers, seven Fireballs) on the
    way. Go back to the left side of the room, then proceed back to the right,
    going up the second ladder. In that room, go the left and defeat the two
    Archers, then proceed to go back to where you entered the room. Jump down the
    ledge and, back in the sandy corridor, proceed to the right and up the other
    ladder.
    
    Upon entering the room, examine the shiny spot on the floor nearby for a bit
    of the necklace Lance made for Lilly. Defeat the four Archers throughout the
    room, then proceed to the next room on the right. There, defeat the Fireball,
    then go left and defeat the three Archers. Continue going left to another trio
    of Fireballs. Continue to the left side of the room and proceed to the next
    area.
    
    You'll arrive in the area where you first reached the impeding ramp, but on the
    other side of it. Go to the right and defeat the Fireball to receive a Defense
    upgrade. Proceed right, along the wall's top, to the next area. Beware the
    spears that extend from the wall as you go -- no one likes to be poked in the
    leg.
    
    In this area, proceed to the right. As you do, be ready to use your
    telekinesis, as there are a few Archers ahead. You'll soon come to the two
    Archers. Defeat the one you can get to, then proceed down into the sandy
    corridor below. Bombs away~!
    
    After landing, miraculously unhurt, you'll find yourself in a statue-filled
    room, much like that of some Egyptian tombs. Anyhow, go to the right and look
    at the rightmost statues -- one has a skin-colored face behind its face shield.
    Defeat this Archer and proceed into the next room.
    
    There, you'll find another two Archers, as well as a Fireball. Defeat them and
    take the leftmost staircase. Up there, open the chest to find a Red Jewel.
    Return downstairs and go to the right, through the next stairway you see, to
    find two more Fireballs. Defeat them and ascend the other staircase on the
    right side of the room.
    
    In this next room, walk to the left to find an Archer. Stand to the south of
    him and defeat him, then head to the left. As you do, defeat the Archer and the
    Green Snake you find. Continue along to find another spear-filled area. Pass it
    and proceed up the middle staircase.
    
    In that room, get rid of the Fireball and two Green Snakes, then return down to
    the previous floor. Go to the left and up the stairs. There, continue up the
    stairs to the next room. There, go to the right to find two Archers and two
    Green Snakes. Get rid of both pairs of enemies, then proceed to the door that
    is second from the right. As you do, pick up the necklace piece, then proceed
    through the doorway to the next area.
    
    There, hit the switch nearby to set off a reaction, which is unseen to your
    left. Go downstairs and through the doorway second from the left. Up there,
    defeat two more Archers and head to the left staircase. Go up there and defeat
    the Archer from earlier, then go to the right and defeat the Fireball. If you
    had beaten all of the enemies in this area, your HP will be augmented. Go to
    the right, now, and avoid the spears as you proceed to the next area. As you go
    there, you'll watch a short scene before being fully allowed to the next area.
    
    Anyhow, next area. There, go to the right and through the door. Go left to find
    a treasure chest with an Herb inside, then go to the right and defeat the
    Archer. Afterwards, continue along to the Green Snake. Stand against the wall
    and defeat it. Proceed back to the outside area. There, go to the right and
    down the four ramps, then immediately use your Psycho Slider technique. If you
    did it right, proceed to the right and into the door. Defeat the three Archers,
    one Green Snake, and lone Fireball within. Hit the switch and go past the
    spear, then go through the door.
    
    Here, go to the right and proceed down the ramps as before. However, just let
    yourself run to the far right side of the area, then proceed to the next area.
    
    Here, proceed to the right to find some doors and a large gap. First, take the
    leftmost staircase down a floor. Defeat the two Green Snakes there. Return to
    the upper floor and proceed through the rightmost door. Defeat the other pair
    of Green Snakes here.
    
    Return to the large gap area. If you go due south from the middle door, you
    should hit some obstacle. Jump off of the ledge by using the gap to the right
    of this obstacle. Upon landing, defeat the two Archers nearby. You'll then
    notice that this room has five gaps in it -- jump down the middle one to find
    another large gap. Jump down from where you landed - don't move to the left or
    right.
    
    On that ledge, you'll find a Dark Space. Go inside to learn the Psycho Spin
    technique. This technique activates when you hold the Attack button until Will
    is flashing rapidly, much like before using a Psycho Dash. However, don't yet
    let go of the Attack button -- instead, alternatedly press L and R to make
    Will spin. Soon after that occurs, press a direction on the D-Pad to move
    quickly. With this, you can ascend steep inclines and damage enemies!
    
    After gaining your technique, use Gaia to heal and/or save, then leave. Drop
    down the gap to the bottom floor. Defeat the trio of Green snakes to obtain a
    Defense boost, then go to the left and upstairs. Outside, go west to a
    previous area.
    
    Here, go left some to the ramp. Use the Psycho Spin to get over it, but not
    the next ramp, so as to be able to go through the door. Inside, go to the left
    and defeat the four Green Snakes and the lone Fireball. Afterwards, take the
    staircase on the left side of the room.
    
    Here, you'll want to quickly take a few steps south, because you will likely be
    hit by a Fireball. Defeat it, then go to the right side of the room. As you do,
    be sure to eliminate all of the enemies (six Fireballs and three Green Snakes).
    Afterwards, head back to the left side of the room and smack the switch. Go
    around and past the spear next to the wall, so as to reach the other switch.
    Hit that switch to get rid both spears, so run quickly to the left side of the
    room. Defeat the Green Snake and the penned-up Fireball. Further left, you'll
    find another pair of Archers. Dispatch these remaining enemies for an HP boost.
    Proceed to the left side of the room and use the Dark Space to heal, save, and
    transform into Freedan.
    
    Outside the Dark Space, go to the right. Smack the switch and go through the
    door you get to. In that room, go right and ignore the next door. Smack the
    switch past the obstacle twice and go through where the spears where. Go
    through the door at the far right end, then exit to the right.
    
    Here, go past this screen and exit to the right once more. In the next area,
    start charging a Dark Friar and proceed to the right. You'll find an Archer
    out of normal sword reach, but three Dark Friars will get rid of him. Charge
    and fire them, then go through the newly-opened doorway.
    
    In this room, you'll find a Fireball. Defeat it if possible, although it will
    probably just go to another room. Go to the left and defeat the quartet of
    Archers, then continue further to the left and through the stairwell.
    
    In this area, proceed along the pseudo-maze. Hit the first statue to move it
    out of the way, then go into the bottom path and face to the right. Use your
    telekinesis to move a currently-unseen statue to you, and then hit it only
    one time. Proceed to the top path and get above the second statue. Smack it,
    then get above the third statue and move it a slight bit with telekinesis.
    Get on its row and pull it some more. Go along this newly-made path to find
    another two statues. Get on the same row as the fourth, but behind the wall,
    and pull it to you. Get above it and smack it, then proceed along your new
    path. Smack the switch at the end and backtrack, killing the six Archers in the
    area. Afterwards, exit to the right.
    
    Here, go past the spear sets to a doorway. Ignore it momentarily and you'll
    fight the evasive Fireball from earlier. Defeat it for a Strength augmentation,
    then use the stairs nearby. Proceed to the right to the next area.
    
    Here, go to the right and down your first stairwell. Go around this room and
    defeat the nine enemies (six Archers, two Fireballs, one Green Snake) before
    going any further. Afterwards, take the unused door on the right side of the
    room. You'll arrive in another statue room -- go around the room and hit the
    statues to find that six are actually Archers. After defeating them, go near
    the entrance and into the Dark Space.
    
    Inside the Dark Space, heal, transform back into Will, and save. Exit the Dark
    Space and go backtrack to the outside of the Great Wall. There, Psycho Spin
    past the ramp and continue right to the next area. There, jump off of the first
    ledge you see, then repeat, to find a sand pit and another boss fight.
    
    =============================================================================
                                  BOSS: Sand Fanger
                                        HP: 40
    =============================================================================
    
    To begin with its attacks... With one of them, you'll find see a quicksand pit
    appear and the Sand Fanger will launch from it and go way up. This initial
    launch can damage you, as well as its downward attack. As it goes up and down,
    are able to hit it, but do so safely.
    
    Another attack is similar to the above, but instead of going straight up, the
    Sand Fanger will arch over to the middle or so of the area, then go to the far
    side. You can damage it here, but it isn't worth the bother.
    
    The Sand Fanger's other attack is where you'll really find damaging it easy.
    Another quicksand pit appears, but the boss just sticks his head out. During
    this time, until he sticks his head back in the ground, just ignore all else
    that happens and continually hit his head. During this attack, the boss may
    release a mini-version of it and/or a richocheting rock ball. Both have 3 HP
    and can be dealt with easily, which they should, lest this battle go on too
    long and they start to really become frustrating.
    
    Your offensive strategy is relatively simple. Simply go around and dodge the
    boss's attacks. In the meantime, try to hit the boss when safely possible, and
    never pass up the chance for the attack mentioned above! Don't try using any
    of your special powers, either; just stick to plain attacks.
    
    ~~~
    
    After the battle, you'll be rewarded with another Mystic Statue. The path ahead
    will also be opened up. Go forward to the ladder, climb it, and go the right.
    Go through the doorway to find Lance. After some cutscenes, you'll be back in
    Watermia.

    Upon your arrival, head to the southeastern Gambling House and speak with Gem,
    who is inside. If you have 30 Red Jewels, you'll be given a Dark Friar upgrade,
    which also happens to be your final Red Jewel reward for a while.
    
    Next up, exit the house and go to the northeastern corner of the raft. Wait
    there for a minute or two, usually, to find the lotus pad. Ride it to another
    platform. Speak with the man in your path and tell him "Yes" twice.
    
    After speaking with the man in the straw hat, you'll begin playing the Russian
    Glass Player game. Your opponent, the straw hat guy, will drink first. Then it
    is your turn. Should you drink the poisoned glass, you will obviously lose. The
    poisoned glass is on the far right, and you'll be given a warning due it being
    poisoned. Keep swapping back and forth like this until your opponent
    moronically kills himself on pride -- damn fool.
    
    After the game, you'll be given, in the man's will, four Kruks. Speaking with
    the wife, to note something, will reveal that she is not really saddened by
    this -- she's talking about joy. Quite the dysfunctional marriage.
    
    Afterwards, go back over to Luke's House, where everyone is. After giving them
    the news, speak with Lance and Lilly, then Neil, to proceed. Your party,
    except Lance and Lilly, will cross the desert to Euro.

    Once you arrive, you'll be inside the Rolek mansion, which is owned by Neil's
    parents. When you regain control of Will, leave the guest room and the mansion
    as a whole. Go south to the market area. Speak with the woman next to the Red
    Apple stand to get a Red Apple for free. Go back into the mansion and into the
    leftmost room. Give the Red Apple to Ann. Repeat this so that Ann has been
    given three Red Apples and you'll be given a Red Jewel.
    
    Return to the Red Apple stand and go east to find a line in front of a store.
    Go into the building on the right, then exit and QUICKLY get to the end of
    line, cutting two places ahead. You'll now have to wait a while (easily five
    to seven minutes) before you can enter the store. Inside, you can drink both
    potions. The left one, the Life Potion, boosts your HP. The other potion, the
    Dark Potion, will power up Freedan's Dark Friar, if Gem didn't upgrade the
    move already. Exit this building.
    
    Go to the building east of here and inside. Go to the second floor to find a
    Dark Space. Use it if you want, then exit the house. Go north to the alley,
    then into the house next to the blue-haired woman. Speak with the men in there
    to get the Mountain Temple marked on your map.
    
    Exit this house and go west, right into the wall. Examine the wall to your
    north to find a Red Jewel. Get out of the alley, then go north. Go past the
    first intersection. There is an unseen alcove where two houses are. Examine
    around there to find the alley connecting the two. Once in the alley,
    scrutinize the alleyway: at one point you should be able to press Up on the
    D-Pad to enter the building. Once within, you can speak with the person there
    to get an upgrade in Strength! (Thanks to Xenesis Xenon for this info!) After,
    go back outside and west, north, and go up the ladder there. You'll find a
    shrine and a statue there. Examine the statue to find a hidden room, as well
    as the secret of Neil's parents. Examine the southeastern barrel for another
    Red Jewel, then exit out of here and the alcove.
    
    Go south to the intersection from earlier. Use the unused path and you'll soon
    find someone jumping in front of a window. Go into that house to speak with
    Gem. Hand over your Red Jewels, then head to the southeastern corner of town.
    Go back to Watermia.

    Don't expect a ton of help in the way of enemy locations - this bunch really
    loves to move around. I apologize for the inconveniences this will definitely
    cause.
    
    Anyhow, after entering the entrance area, take out all eleven enemies, which
    consists of seven Purple Skulls and four Spiders. This will end up augmenting
    your Strength. Afterwards, head to the northwestern exit.
    
    In this area, go around and defeat the twenty-four enemies -- six Purple
    Skulls, ten Yellow Skulls, five Spiders, and three Flute Players. Go around
    the area and dispatch all of them -- remember, you can use Psycho Spin to use
    the ramps. Once all twenty-four enemies are gone, you'll get a Defense upgrade.
    Return to where you arrived in this area. Take the western northbound path
    north, then west, then south, then Psycho Spin across the ramp. Go into the
    Dark Space and switch to Freedan. Leave the Dark Space and head west, then
    north. Outside of the mushroom zone, you'll find two northbound paths. Take
    the western one of the two.
    
    Proceed to the next area, where you'll fight fourteen enemies. They consist of
    five Purple Skulls, six Spiders, and three Yellow Skulls. Defeat them all for
    an HP augmentation, then return to the entrance of the area. From there, head\
    north and east to the next area.
    
    There, go east. You'll fight ten Spiders, five Yellow Skulls, and five Purple
    Skulls as you go. Defeating them all nets you a Strength upgrade. After that,
    continue along to the Dark Space. Use it to heal and save, but don't change
    into Will right now. Instead, after doing your business, head out of the Dark
    Space and go south, then west to the next area.
    
    There, open up the treasure chest to find a Red Jewel. Start backtracking to
    the Dark Space in the previous area. You'll find two westbound paths. Take the
    southern one, then continue west to the previous area. There, go west and up
    the second northbound path, then west, south, and west to the next area.
    
    There, go around and defeat the whopping twenty-six enemies. These consist of
    ten Purple Skulls, nine Yellow Skulls, and seven Spiders. Once you dispatch
    the whole ground, you'll receive another HP upgrade. You'll also get a
    shortcut back to the beginning by defeating one of the Yellow Skulls. Ignore it
    for now unless you need to leave.
    
    Upon clearing the area, return to the entrance. Go south as far as possible,
    then go west and north. Go west, skipping the northbound path, then head west,
    north, east, north, then as far east as possible. Go north and do the little
    circle thing to the chest. Open it up to find a Mushroom Drop. Using the
    shortcut made earlier, return to the entrance of the area, then proceed to the
    previous area.
    
    There, go east, north, east, south, east, then north all of the way. You'll
    find a dead end on the left. Head to the end of it. Equip and use the Mushroom
    Drop to create a path forward. Use it to reach the next area.
    
    There, begin heading along the linear path to the east. As you do, defeat the
    fourteen enemies along the way -- six Spiders, three Purple Skulls, three
    Yellow Skulls, six Spiders, and two Flute Players. You won't get a stat boost
    yet, as part of the area remains inaccessible for the moment. For now, just
    exit to the east.
    
    In this area, you'll find fifteen enemies. There are six Flute Players, five
    Yellow Skulls, three Spiders, and a single Purple Skull. After getting rid of
    them all, you'll gain an HP upgrade. Afterwards, head as far east as you can
    to reach a dead end to find some of these enemies, then go north and west to
    find a chest. Open it to find the second Mushroom Drop. Take it and proceed
    back to the previous area.
    
    There, go west, north, west, north, and east to reach another dead-end. Go to
    the end of it, then equip and use the Mushroom Drop you just got. This will
    finish the path ahead. Cross it, heading east, then go north. Defeat the Purple
    Skull, then go west. Charge up a Dark Friar as you do so, then take out the
    Yellow Skull across the currently-uncrossable gap. Then go north and defeat the
    Spider, then go east and north to the next area.
    
    Here, you'll find a daunting number of enemies -- thirty-nine. These consist of
    thirteen Spiders, twelve Yellow Skulls, eleven Blue Skulls, and three Flute
    Players. Head around the area and defeat them. You'll receive a Defense boost
    once you eventually do.
    
    After that daunting (and bloody?) task, return to the start. Go north, east,
    south, east to the end, north, and east some more to find a mushroom-filled
    zone. There, go into the Dark Space. There, you'll learn the Aura Barrier
    technique. If I remember correctly, it is executed like Will's Psycho Slide,
    but with Freedan. It basically creates a temporal shield around you. Also be
    sure to heal and save in here.
    
    Afterwards, exit the Dark Space. Go west, south, west, north to the end, west
    to the end, north, then east and across the ramp to find some mushrooms. Go
    east across them, then further east. At the end, go south as far as you can,
    then go west and jump another ramp. At this mushroom, use the ramp nearby to
    arrive at a treasure chest. Open it up to receive the third and final Mushroom
    Drop. After receiving it, go west, across the ramp, then north as far as you
    can go. Next up, go east, across another ramp, then west and south as far as
    possible. Continue to the previous area.
    
    There, go south as far as possible, ignoring the first path, then head west to
    another dead end. There, go to the end of it. Equip and use the Mushroom Drop
    to finish up the vine bridge. In this previously-unvisited section of the area,
    you'll find three Purple Skulls, two Yellow Skulls, a Flute Player, and a
    Spider. Go around and slice them all into oblivion. As a reward, you'll get a
    Defense augmentation. Return to where the vine was regrown, then go west to the
    end, then north and west to the next area.
    
    Go along the linear path in this area. Defeat all eight enemies -- four Yellow
    Skulls and four Flute Players -- in the area to get a Strength upgrade. Woo.
    Exit the area to the northwest.
    
    In this area, you'll find a treasure chest. In this last room of the dungeon,
    you'll find a Teapot within the treasure chest. Backtracking time!
    
    Go to the previous area, then follow the linear path back to the area before
    it. There, head east, ignoring the first southbound path, then use the ramp.
    Go west and south to the next area. There, go south, through the mushrooms,
    and into the Dark Space to the east. Transform into Will and exit. Go west and
    north to the two paths; take the eastern one northward. Psycho Spin at the
    ramp on the right, then continue east. Go across the mushrooms, south, and east
    to the next area. Head to the southeast corner of there to find the exit and
    the end of this dungeon.

    Back in Euro, head back to the Rolek mansion. Go into the middle of the three
    rooms and use the Teapot to cause a scene to occur. After it, Neil will leave
    the party to become the president of his parents' company, and Hamlet
    (remember Kara's pig?) will join the party. Speak with Kara to head west to the
    next area.

    You'll arrive in a seemingly-uninhabited village. Head to the northeast corner
    of the area to find a Dark Space you can save in. Go into the eastern house
    afterwards and examine the southern pot to find a Red Jewel. Exit the house
    and speak with Kara, then head into the other house. Speak with Kara again to
    watch a scene.
    
    In short, the natives come by while they sleep and tie them up. As Will and the
    others are getting prepared for the roast, Hamlet sacrifices himself so as to
    feed the natives and not let Will, Kara, and Erik meet the same fate. The trio
    are then released.
    
    Speak with the northeastern boy and show him your map. The temple of Ankor Wat
    will then be shown on the map. Leave this village via the southeast corner to
    be allowed to get there.

    O----------------------O
    |  Outside - Entrance  |
    O----------------------O
    
    Upon arriving, you'll be outside. There are fifteen enemies around here. You'll
    find seven Blue Creatures, five Flies, and three Bushes. The Blue Creatures
    must first have their head destroyed when it is extended -- if you fail to get
    rid of it in that time frame, the head is healed. Once the head is gone, kill
    the body. The Bushes are darker versions of the normal bushes around the area;
    change your T.V. visual settings if you can't find them. The Flies are
    demonically fast, so it may take a while to finish them. After defeating all of
    the enemies, you'll get an HP upgrade. Enter the north-central temple when you
    are done.
    
    O---------------O
    |  Inside - 1F  |
    O---------------O
    
    Inside, defeat the Orange Demon Head nearby. Afterwards, start charging up a
    Psycho Dash and head east to the next room. Initially hit the Stone Warrior
    with a Psycho Dash, then kill it, as well as the other one around here, too.
    Go to the northwest corner of this little room and go upstairs, then use the
    ramp to the reach the chest on the other side of the room. Open it for a Red
    Jewel. Go east to the next room. Defeat the Orange Demon Head and two Stone
    Warriors there, then exit to the north.
    
    Go north and dispatch the Orange Demon Head. Psycho Spin across the ramp to
    soon encounter a Purple Demon Head. Remember that it moves only along the
    walls and will speed up as it gets damaged. Defeat it and go north. You'll
    soon find a Stone Warrior and a Scorpion. Defeat them and head further north
    to find two Purple Demon Heads. Dispatch them, then go north to a pair of
    Scorpions. Defeat them both. Defeating the eastern one will open up the path
    ahead. Afterwards, Psycho Slide beneath the wall to find a pair of Stone
    Warriors and an Orange Demon Head. Defeat them all to receive a Defense
    upgrade. Go north to the next area.
    
    Here, go up to the ledge and defeat the pair of Purple Demon Heads. Go left to
    find a ledge. Drop off of it to the ground below, which opens up beneath you to
    take you to a lower area.
    
    There, walk southwest to the stairs and use them. Head west to find a few
    enemies amongst the pillars -- to be specific, three Orange Demon Heads and two
    Purple Demon Heads. Defeat them and head to the northwest corner of the area to
    find a Scorpion. Defeat it for another Defense boost. The path forward also
    opens up -- proceed.
    
    Here, head southeast somewhat to find an Orange Demon Head. Smack it to death,
    then go east to find a Scorpion quartet. Defeat them all to receive an HP
    upgrade. Go back left afterwards and exit to the southwest.
    
    Here, go south and Psycho Slide beneath the gap in the wall. You'll then need
    to fight two Stone Warriors. Beware of their initial leap, as it'll cause rocks
    to fall. Afterwards, defeat them and the two Purple Demon Heads. Slide south
    after the brawl. This time, you'll fight two Stone Warriors and a lone Purple
    Demon Head. After that fight, Psycho Slide south to find two Scorpions. Defeat
    them, then circle around to the south. Use the stairs to reach the chest, in
    which you'll find an Herb. Reach the ground and Psycho Spin at the ramp from
    the north. Upon landing, defeat the two Stone Warriors to receive a Strength
    boost. Continue south to the next area.
    
    Here, go southeast to find an Orange Demon Head and a Scorpion. Finish off both
    them, then continue east to find a room filled with pillars and ten Purple
    Demon Heads. Defeat them all, then go east and upstairs to find a Scorpion.
    Finish this little bugger to get a Strength upgrade. Use the newly-path to
    reach the garden to the north.
    
    O--------------------O
    |  Outside - Garden  |
    O--------------------O
    
    This area is kind of open-ended. You'll basically have thirty-nine enemies in
    this area -- twenty-three Bushes, eight Flies, eight Blue Creatures. You'll
    want to head over to the Dark Space and use Freedan and his powered-up Dark
    Friar to be able to manage to really destroy groups of enemies. You'll find a
    Bush in the northwestern corner of the area, against the north wall, that has
    to be hit with a Dark Friar to finish it. You'll also find a skeleton in the
    southeastern area -- examine it to just some stuff for the heck of it.
    
    Once you defeat all thirty-nine enemies, you'll get a well-earned HP upgrade.
    Since you should be done here, use the north-central door to get back into the
    temple.
    
    O---------------O
    |  Inside - 1F  |
    O---------------O
    
    Upon entering, defeat the Stone Warrior nearby that is about to jump. Then
    head east to find another pillar-filled area, in which you'll find seven
    Purple Demon Heads. Defeat them all and head northeast to the next area of the
    dungeon.
    
    Here, go north and defeat the two Stone Warriors, then proceed north some more,
    charging a Dark Friar as you do. Further to the north, you'll find a pair of
    Purple Demon Heads and a pair of Scorpions. Defeat them to get another Defense
    upgrade, as well as an opened path forward. Use it.
    
    Go north and into the Dark Space. Here, you learn the Earthquaker move. It is
    executed by pressing the Attack button while jumping off of a ledge. This will
    temporarily stun enemies on the ground, leaving them open to attack. Heal and
    save here, then return to the entrance room of this section of the temple.
    
    Here, head upstairs and west. Defeat the Stone Warrior on the ledge, then drop
    down from the ledge, using Earthquaker. Proceed to the west and north along the
    path quickly to avoid being blocked by a Stone Warrior. Shatter it for its
    trouble, then exit to the north.
    
    Here, go north and get rid of the Orange Demon Head, then continue forward to
    find two Scorpions. Smash 'em good, then continue north to find another set of
    enemies consisting of two Stone Warriors, two Purple Demon Heads, and one
    Orange Demon Head. Their defeat will give you some more HP. After receiving
    your upgrade, go upstairs to the chest. Open it for a Red Jewel. After getting
    it, head south to the fork in the road. Go along the east path to the next
    area.
    
    This area is pretty simple -- go east and defeat the Scorpion duo to receive
    a Strength augmentation. Afterwards, continue along back outside.
    
    O--------------------O
    |  Outside - Garden  |
    O--------------------O
    
    Here, run up the main staircase and jump off of to find a lower area on either
    side of them. Altogether, you'll find four Blue Creatures there, so you'll have
    to use the stairs a few times. After defeating these enemies, head north to the
    next area.
    
    O---------------O
    |  Inside - 1F  |
    O---------------O
    
    Here, charge up a Dark Friar. Go northwest to find three Orange Demon Heads.
    Defeat them all (a feat possible with an upgraded Dark Friar), then head around
    the corner and east. Ignore the staircase on the way. Head south soon to find
    a pair of Purple Demon Heads. Defeat them, as well as the Orange Demon Head
    nearby, to get a Strength upgrade. Continue south to the garden again.
    
    O--------------------O
    |  Outside - Garden  |
    O--------------------O
    
    Head down the staircase, then use the one to the east upon landing. In this
    little alley, defeat the Bush for a Defense boost. Examine the spot where the
    Bush was standing to find Black Glasses -- if you don't find them, wait for a
    little sparkle to appear and examine that spot. Now, backtrack inside the
    temple.
    
    O---------------O
    |  Inside - 1F  |
    O---------------O
    
    Backtrack to the staircase from earlier that we skipped. Equip the Black
    Glasses, then head on up.
    
    O---------------O
    |  Inside - 2F  |
    O---------------O
    
    Normal, due to the crystals in this room, navigation will be near-impossible
    due to the fact that the room would be a blinding white color. But, with the
    Black Glasses, we can see just fine in here. Wander around and defeat the five
    Purple Demon Heads, and be sure to NOT fall into any of the holes before such
    happens. After defeating them all, fall down the hole on the east side of the
    area.
    
    O---------------O
    |  Inside - 1F  |
    O---------------O
    
    You should land next to a Dark Space on a ledge. Go into it. Transform into
    Will now, then heal and save at Gaia. Exit the Dark Space, then jump off of
    the ledge. Backtrack to the stairwell and go back up.
    
    O---------------O
    |  Inside - 2F  |
    O---------------O
    
    Remember that eastern hole you fell through to reach the Dark Space. Well, go
    there now, but don't go into the hole. Continue east to find a gap beneath the
    wall. Psycho Slide beneath it.
    
    Defeat the Orange Demon Head, then head around to the left, ignoring the
    staircase, to find another Orange Demon Head. Get rid of it for an HP boost.
    Jump down the hole nearby.
    
    O---------------O
    |  Inside - 1F  |
    O---------------O
    
    In this area, grab the Red Jewel from the chest. Jump down from the left and
    head south, west, north, east, south, east, and back upstairs.
    
    O---------------O
    |  Inside - 2F  |
    O---------------O
    
    Go east again, and slide beneath the gap in the wall. Head around to the left
    and go upstairs now.
    
    O---------------O
    |  Inside - 3F  |
    O---------------O
    
    Head east and defeat the pair of Purple Demon Heads. Afterwards, head to the
    west. There, you'll soon find a Stone Warrior and an Orange Demon Head. Get rid
    of the both of them and Psycho Slide beneath the gap. On the other side, head
    east and north. Defeat the Orange Demon Head, then go east and upstairs.
    
    Defeat the pair of Purple Demon Heads nearby, then head west and south to find
    an Orange Demon Head. Get rid of it, too, then go east. Ignore the hole, then
    head south and west. You'll soon find four enemies -- three Purple Demon Heads
    and a Stone Warrior. Crush them all thoroughly to get another HP upgrade.
    Continue to the end of the hall to find a chest; open it up for a Red Jewel.
    Backtrack to the hole you skipped earlier and jump on down.
    
    O---------------O
    |  Inside - 2F  |
    O---------------O
    
    Get rid of the local Purple Demon Head and circle around and along the path.
    Defeat the Stone Warrior, then proceed forward and west to an Orange Demon
    Head. Defeat it and head west to a Stone Warrior and two Purple Demon Heads.
    After defeating all of them, your Defense will be augmented. Use the northwest
    stairwell to proceed.

    Here, go east, south, east, and upstairs.

    Here, go along the linear path until you eventually reach the blue spirit to
    learn of the future. After this semi-lengthy cutscene, you'll be given the
    Gorgon Flower.
    
    O----------------------------O
    |  Backtracking out of Here  |
    O----------------------------O
    
    Backtrack to 3F.
    
    Here, go south and jump off of the platform. Go around east and downstairs
    (remember to wear the Black Glasses). There, go west, north, east, then jump
    down the hole to 1F.
    
    Here, jump off of the ledge and go south. There, continue heading south into
    the other portion of hte temple. There, go west and north to the next area,
    then circle around and exit that area to the south. Go southeast from there
    to find the garden doorway. Go through it and make your way around
    counterclockwise to the other temple entrance. There, cross the dual-staircase
    and exit to the south. Outside, go south and opt to head to the Natives'
    Village.

    After the quick cutscene, exit the house and go outside. In the alley to the
    west, you'll find the Dark Space for this area. Save in there if you so wish.
    Then speak with the man in front of your temporary residence to receive Lola's
    Letter and Father's Journal. Read both of them.
    
    Afterwards, go into the house next to yours to find Neil. Speak with him if
    you want, then go into the alley next to this house. You'll find Gem there;
    turn in some Red Jewels.
    
    Go into the house on the other side of the alley. Speak with the man inside to
    play a Whack-a-Mole kind of game. Here, you'll have to hit a bunch of snakes in
    the three pots. Stand beneath the middle one, from where Will has enough reach
    to hit either of the side pots, and the middle one of course. Pretty easy -- I
    don't know the minimum requirements, but I hit fifty snakes my first time. A
    success will net you two Red Jewels, which are automatically sent to Gem.
    
    Leave the house and head east. You should find a pair of Kruks soon enough.
    Stand above the western one and examine the local vegetation to find the third
    Red Jewel here. Send it to Gem, then exit town to the west, heading for the
    Pyramid, and your penultimate (required) dungeon...

    I'll go ahead and note now that Mummy Spirits appear when regular Mummies die
    (again). The defeating of a Mummy Spirit is implied when I tell you to defeat
    a Mummy.
    
    O-------------O
    |  The Start  |
    O-------------O
    
    To be rather honest, this is one of my favorite dungeons. I don't know why, but
    it just is. Anyhow, upon entering, head east. Defeat the two Laser Spheres to
    get a Defense upgrade, as well as open the path to the nearby Dark Space.
    
    Go into the Dark Space and use the statue on the right to *FINALLY* transform
    into Shadow. His controls are essentially the same. However, he does have great
    weapon reach, and his telekinetic shield provides protection for all applicable
    attacks from all angles! Speak with Gaia to receive the Aura item. It basically
    functions as Shadow's ability -- equip and use it to become water. This allows
    temporal immunity to attacks, and lets you seep through cracks in the floor, as
    we'll do a bunch in this dungeon.
    
    Now, exit the Dark Space and equip the Aura item. Note that you won't really
    need to use the doorways here -- the east/west doors take you outside, and the
    central doorway takes to a currently-useless puzzle room. Instead, just use
    Aura to seep through the floor at the top of the stairs. Note the floor design
    for this spot, too. Once you fall through, examine the left pillar to find a
    Red Jewel, then fall through the bricked floor to the next area.

    That is a diagram of the room in which you'll arrive. Each of these six doors
    will lead to a mini-dungeon. You can do these in pretty much any order.
    However, I'll do them in a non-numerical order, so as to save time from
    character swapping. You can use the Dark Space to transform into any of the
    characters, as well as save and heal. The warp in the southeast corner will
    take you back to the entrance room of the temple.
    
    Anyhow, onto the mini-dungeons. Dungeon names are made as per the above ASCII
    art, and WILL NOT be in numerical order. I would prefer you proceed in this
    order, to save time and confusion.
    
    O--------------------------O---------------------O
    |  Door #2's Mini-Dungeon  |  Character: Shadow  |
    O--------------------------O---------------------O
    
    Upon entering, go down the western staircase. Defeat the Laser Sphere and go
    up to the platform. Get rid of those two Laser Spheres, then return to
    "ground level" to find one more. Ignore the door to the left up here; instead,
    just use Aura to go through the floor somewhere.
    
    After landing, ignore the pit nearby and head to the far right and downstairs.
    Go through the doorway to go down some. Defeat the Laser Spheres nearby, then
    go left for another Laser Sphere, as well as a Bird Solider. Defeat the both of
    them to up your Defense. Continue left and head through the door at the end of
    the hall.
    
    Here, head to the right and go downstairs. Defeat the pair of Laser Spheres and
    continue to find four Laser Spheres. Pop them, too, and go down the lengthy
    stairwell to find another pair of Laser Spheres, as well as a Bird Soldier. Go
    down the unused stairwell to find  *gasp*  six Laser Spheres. Go down the
    unused stairwell again to find two more Laser Spheres. Go down the next
    staircase and to the right.
    
    Get rid of the final two enemies in this area, two Bird Soldiers, to get
    rewarded with a Strength boost. Continue to the end of the corridor to find a
    chest with a Red Jewel inside. Now, backtracking time.
    
    Go back the four staircases. Upon clearing the landing, look for bricks in
    the floor below. Use the Aura item to seep through them. Ignore the warp puddle
    for now and go into the adjacent room upon landing to find a Hieroglyph. Go
    back to the warp puddle and return to the top of the pyramid. 
    
    Here, go into the central room and place the Hieroglyph into the second slot
    from the left. Return to the multi-door chamber beneath the floor and go into
    our next mini-dungeon.
    
    O--------------------------O---------------------O
    |  Door #3's Mini-Dungeon  |  Character: Shadow  |
    O--------------------------O---------------------O
    
    Upon arriving, go to the right and defeat the four Laser Spheres. Continue
    further to a Bird Soldier and another Laser Sphere. Defeat them both and go
    further along. Ignore the ramp and just go downstairs and through the door.
    Here, you'll find Laser Sphere and a Bird Soldier. Defeat both and head
    downstairs to find a supposedly-empty room. Actually, along the back wall of
    the room, you'll find four Invisible Bird Heads. They can fire lasers at you
    and will damage you if you run into them. Defeat them and use the Aura to go
    through the floor.
    
    Upon landing, defeat the Bird Soldier and the Laser Sphere. Go to the right to
    find another of the latter; of course, defeat it. Go through the far door to
    find another lone Laser Sphere. Pop it, then exit and all of the way to the
    left and through that door.
    
    There, go to the right and step on the switch. Soon, your path ahead will open
    up; use it to go to the right once it is cleared. On the landing, step on the
    switch, then defeat the two Laser Spheres. Once the path opens up, follow it to
    another landing. Step on the switch and defeat the four Laser Spheres. Follow
    the path once it opens up, then go through the door.
    
    In this room, defeat the Invisible Bird Heads on either side of you, then step
    on the switch. Once the path opens up, go along it to another switch and Laser
    Sphere. Step on the former, defeat the latter, and go along the path once it
    opens up. On the next landing, defeat the Invisible Bird Head, then use the
    switch. Go along the path once it opens up. On the next landing, defeat the six
    Laser Spheres. You'll then get a Strength upgrade.
    
    Afterwards, step on the switch and follow the path once it opens. Go through
    the door to find another Hieroglyph. Return to the previous room and use the
    warp puddle to go back to the entrance area of the Pyramid.
    
    There, go into the central room and insert the Hieroglyph in the third slot
    from the left. Return to the multi-door chamber, heal if needed, and proceed
    to your next mini-dungeon.
    
    O--------------------------O---------------------O
    |  Door #5's Mini-Dungeon  |  Character: Shadow  |
    O--------------------------O---------------------O
    
    Once you arrive here, go to the right and get rid of the two Bird Soldiers.
    Continue to the end of the hall and defeat the Laser Sphere, then head down
    the staircase. Once you reach the bricked area, use the Aura to go down some.
    
    Upon landing, you'll be ambushed by a Bird Soldier and a Laser Sphere. Defeat
    them for their trouble, then go to the right to find an Invisible Bird Head.
    Here, use your Aura to go through the floor to another room. This one has a
    treasure chest; open it up to receive a Red Jewel. Use the warp puddle here to
    go back to the Pyramid entrance.
    
    Here, seep back through the floor and go back into the fifth mini-dungeon. Go
    to the far right, then head downstairs and through the floor. Back here, go up
    the stairs to the left and defeat the two Laser Spheres, then the other six
    Laser Spheres at the landing at the top.
    
    Next, go to the far left portion of the floor and go through the floor with
    the Aura. Take out the Invisible Bird Heads upon landing to receive another HP
    augmentation. Go through the door nearby.
    
    Here, head to the right. Exorcise the Mummy duo and their spirits, then go
    further to the right to find a Bird Soldier. Defeat it and the accompanying
    Laser Sphere. Go to the right to find another Laser Sphere grouped with two
    Mummies. Get rid of them and take the western staircase. Defeat the Bird
    Soldier you soon find, then continue down the corridor to find three Mummies.
    
    After that little brawl, take the next down-going stairs. Nearby is a pit. Go
    past it and defeat the Invisible Bird Head, then jump into the pit. Upon
    landing, go to the right, defeat that Invisible Bird Head, and go through the
    nearby doorway.
    
    In this room, go to the left and defeat the Bird Soldier, then continue going
    left to find four Mummies near the staircase's apex. Defeat them and return to
    the landing. Seep through the bricks here, then jump down the pit and head to
    the left.
    
    As you go down the hall, defeat the two Bird Soldiers to augment your Strength.
    Afterwards, go through the door further to the left and get the Hieroglyph from
    within. Get out of the room and use the warp puddle to reach the surface.
    
    There, go into the central room and place the Hieroglyph into the fifth slot
    from the left. Exit that area and seep back through the floor. Go into the Dark
    Space and transform into Will. Return into the third door's mini-dungeon.
    
    There, start charging a Psycho Spin and head to the right. Spin over the gap to
    the right and defeat the Invisible Bird Head here to augment your Defense. You
    also will find a chest; open it for another Red Jewel. Psycho Spin back over
    the gap, go left, and back into the multi-door chamber. Enter the leftmost
    mini-dungeon.
    
    O--------------------------O-------------------O
    |  Door #1's Mini-Dungeon  |  Character: Will  |
    O--------------------------O-------------------O
    
    Here, ignore the door and head to the left. At the bottom of the landing, you
    will find a Laser Sphere. Dispatch it, then Psycho Spin over the two ramps,
    then head to the far left. Defeat the pair of Laser Spheres, go through the
    doorway nearby.
    
    Here, dispatch the Laser Sphere and head to the right. Defeat the next Laser
    Sphere duo and jump from the ledge nearby. Go left and defeat the Laser Sphere,
    then go to the right and do the same with the Bird Soldier. Afterwards,
    continue heading to the right and go upstairs. Defeat the two Laser Spheres and
    go through the door to return to the beginning of the area via the door we
    ignored earlier.
    
    Psycho Spin back across the two gaps and go through the door, then into the
    door on the left. Here, proceed to defeat the two Laser Spheres and you'll
    boost your Defense. After receiving the augmentation, take the doorway on the
    right.
    
    Here, go to the left, and defeat the six Laser Spheres on the way. Psycho Spin
    back and forth to defeat them. Continue to the left side of the area to find
    another pairing-up of Laser Spheres. Dispatch them and go through the door.
    There, in that next area, charge up a Psycho Spin. Proceed to the ramp, get
    near it, then spin across the gap.
    
    On the other side, continue down the hill to find a Bird Soldier. Defeat it
    and go further along the path to find a trio of Laser Spheres. Dispatch them
    and head downstairs to find another Bird Soldier. Defeat it for another
    upgrade in your Defense stat. Now, charge up a Psycho Spin and cross the ramp
    to the left. Go into this room and snatch the Hieroglyph. Go back to the warp
    puddle and return to the Pyramid entrance.
    
    Go into the central room and place the Hieroglyph into the first slot. Exit
    this area, use the Dark Space to become Shadow, go through the floor, and
    transform back into Will for this next mini-dungeon.
    
    O--------------------------O-------------------O
    |  Door #4's Mini-Dungeon  |  Character: Will  |
    O--------------------------O-------------------O
    
    Upon arriving, head to the left. Defeat the pair of Laser Spheres and continue
    to defeat the Bird Soldier ahead. Go down and take the far left door. After
    that, go ahead and defeat the seven impeding Laser Spheres, preferable WITHOUT
    the Psycho Spin. Once you defeat them all, go down the hill and through the
    door.
    
    Defeat the four Mummies here, then use the left staircase to proceed forward.
    Defeat the Laser Sphere and Mummy pair in here, then go through the far right
    doorway. Defeat Mummy there and return to the previous area and go through the
    leftmost door.
    
    Defeat the three Mummies and the two Laser Spheres in here. Afterwards, go
    through the left doorway to fight another trio of Mummies. Then go through the
    doorway on the left again and defeat the two Bird Soldiers and the Mummy trio.
    Go through the left doorway (again) to find a room with four Invisible Bird
    Heads within, two per side. Defeat them all to get yet another Defense boost.
    Yet again, go through the left door.
    
    In this area, head downstairs, then to the right and downstairs again. Ignore
    the Laser Spheres for the moment and you'll soon arrive in another room. Defeat
    the Laser Sphere and Invisible Bird Head quartets in here, then go to the right
    and upstairs. Defeat the Bird Soldier and head left to find the Laser Sphere
    trio you previously ignored. Don't keep them waiting -- kill 'em. Afterwards,
    go left and upstairs. At the apex, go around to the right, charing up a Psycho
    Spin as you go.
    
    Here, walk through the dropping spike ceiling area (don't worry; it won't kill
    you, just eliminate a few orbs of HP). After the first block of spikes, in
    the in-between space, start spinning as the next spike block rises and spin
    through and up the ramp. Here, stop and charge up another Psycho Spin before
    the down-going steps. Once the path is opened up, spin along the path and
    defeat the Laser Spheres on the way, numbering five in all. Continue along.
    
    Once you reach the door on the northern wall, go through it to be ambushed by
    half-a-dozen Mummies. Defeat them all to earn a Strength boost. Open up the
    chest for a Red Jewel, then go back upstairs and through the rightmost doorway.
    
    Here, head to the right, stopping next to the spiked-ceiling area. Once you
    have a clear path, dash to the right and up and down some ramps, stopping
    before the last ramp. Charge up a Psycho Spin here, in the small space between
    the ramp and spiked ceiling, then dash up the ramp. You should also hit a few
    Invisible Bird Heads. After you hit them, stop as soon as possible and go back
    as needed. Defeat them.
    
    Afterwards, Psycho Spin more to the right and defeat the two Laser Spheres,
    then go into the far right door. Here, grab the Hieroglyph, then leave the
    room and warp to the Pyramid's entrance. Go into the central room and place the
    Hieroglyph into the fourth slot from the left.
    
    Go back out of this room, use the Dark Space to transform into Shadow, go
    through the floor. You can use whoever you want for this next room -- I prefer
    Freedan, because of the souped-up Dark Friar.
    
    O--------------------------O-----------------------------------------O
    |  Door #6's Mini-Dungeon  |  Character: Anyone (Freedan preferred)  |
    O--------------------------O-----------------------------------------O
    
    Upon arriving, head to the right to find a room with a Mummy trio and a Laser
    Sphere. Get rid of them all, then go through the middle slot in the wall. Go
    left upon disembarking and defeat the Laser Sphere trio and the Mummy duo. Go
    through the right doorway.
    
    Next, head to the right and you'll soon encounter a single Invisible Bird Head.
    Defeat it, then return to the previous area and go left. Defeat the next three
    Mummies and go through the middle slot. Defeat the two Invisible Bird Heads,
    one per wall, here, in addition to the lone Bird Soldier. This will yield an
    HP boost. Woo.
    
    Go through the left doorway and head to the right, past the stairs, to find
    some enemies. Plow on through them -- there are nine Mummies, five Laser
    Spheres, and a Bird Soldier. Go back to the previously-skipped stairs and use
    them. In the next area, go left and defeat the Bird Soldier and the Invisible
    Bird Head to receive a Defense augmentation.
    
    Return to the previous area and head through the second slot in the wall from
    the right. Grab the Hieroglyph there, then exit the room and use the warp to
    go back to the Pyramid entrance. Go into the central room and proceed to place
    in the Hieroglyph in the rightmost slot.
    
    O------------------O
    |  The Rest of It  |
    O------------------O
    
    Whenever you proceed to place in the sixth Hieroglyph, you'll find the Jackal.
    (You remember that hunter guy from way-back-when after escaping from Edward's
     Prison? That guy.) When you are told, equip and play Lola's Melody to cook the
    Jackal.  *drools*
    
    Anyhow, after that and speaking with Kara, put the final Hieroglyph where it
    goes (sixth slot from the left, if you followed this FAQ). Exit the room and
    ignore the puddle on the ground for the moment. Go into the Dark Space. You
    can use whoever you want for the upcoming boss, but I'd prefer you use Shadow
    because of the Aura-dodging technique, plus his higher offensive power and
    range. Regardless, after that, heal and save with Gaia, then exit the Dark
    Space and use the puddle from earlier.
    
    =============================================================================
                                  BOSS: Mummy Queen
                                        HP: 40
    =============================================================================
    
    As usual, we'll begin with the boss attacks.
    
    Firstly, the Mummy Queen will often split into eight spirits after being hit.
    After the initial launch (where the spirits are angled in intervals of around
    forty-five degrees), they'll start to home in on you. You can usually warp
    upstairs or jump off the ledge to be safe from the latter bit. They'll go back
    into the Mummy Queen shortly.
    
    There is another variation of the above attack. Instead of just spreading out,
    the spirits will form a ring and start flying around. To make them turn back
    into your main boss, you have to hit the unblinking spirit. Stabbing at the
    ring from a distance with Shadow could work, as would Freedan's boosted Dark
    Friar.
    
    Another attack she can use is to make large bricks fall from the roof. Not
    much you can do about it other than move out of the way.
    
    The last attack she has is to fire a ball of energy at you. You can move out
    of the way, warp up a level, jump down a level, or have Shadow use Aura. Not
    exactly worth mentioning.
    
    You don't really have a true offensive strategy in this fight, anyways. All
    you really have to do is hit her and dodge the attacks. Simple concept, right?
    
    ~~~
    
    After the battle, watch the cutscene and you'll be back in Dao. Speak with
    Neil to head to the Tower of Babel.

    |_____________________________________________________________________________|
    
    Time for the final storyline dungeon of the game. It is not actually so long,
    but will contain earlier bosses. Get ready for some fightin'.
    
    After arriving in the Tower of Babel, go to the far right side of the room. You
    will stopped on the way as Will remembers where he found his flute. Examine the
    box on the altar to receive the fiftieth Red Jewel of the game, which will let
    you go to Gem's Mansion soon, if it IS your fiftieth.
    
    Proceed to the right some more, sidling along the ledge to dodge the spike pit.
    Further ahead is a laser barrier. Run into it to reveal the Crystal Ring, the
    item King Edward wanted way back when, and the thing Will merely thought was a
    flute decoration. Equip it to be able to go through the lasers.
    
    On the next floor, you'll find that Kara (the other parachuter in the earlier
    scene) has followed you, using the ring she found on the Incan Gold Ship to
    pass the laser barrier. Go to the left and speak with the spirits to get more
    info on the plot.
    
    On the next floor, speak with the spirits as you go to the other side. As you
    do, you'll note a relatively ornate doorway. Go to the right of it to find a
    Dark Space. Save in it, then go through the ornate doorway.
    
    =============================================================================
                                  BOSS: Dark Castoth
                                        HP: 40
    =============================================================================
    
    Wwe'll begin by describing your boss's attacks. Go ahead and note that, since
    you are using Shadow, you can go ahead and use Aura to dodge these all.
    
    He can create two lightning-fires attack that bounces around the room. Only two
    can be activate at any given time. It is fairly easy to avoid, so long as you
    keep an eye on it.
    
    There is another attack that requires his claws. He'll basically try to scratch
    you or something. Stay against the south edge to avoid it.
    
    Another attack involves a stream of fire going down the path. Stay against the
    wall to avoid it.
    
    Finally, your boss can shoot lasers from his head. For some reason, despite the
    range of the lasers, staying in the southwest/southeast corners works just fine
    to live through it. You'll notice this when he starts to shake a fair deal.
    
    Anyhow, onto business. Our first goal should be to remove the hands. As soon as
    possible, move around to the southwest corner of the pit (not the room) and get
    against the wall. Quickly tap Up on the D-Pad to turn around and rapidly start
    slashing at your opponent's hands. During this time, keep aware of the
    lightning-fire attack. After five hits from Freedan, the hand will be gone.
    Repeat this with the other hand.
    
    For a few seconds after removing Castoth's hands, just dodge his attacks for
    a bit. Eventually, his eyes will widen and you should get against the central
    wall, quick-tap Up on the D-Pad, and start slicing up his face. This will keep
    you from the fire-line attack. All you have to watch for at this point is the
    lightning-fire attack and his lasers. Remember, once he starts to shake a lot,
    head to the southwest/southeast corners.
    
    After the lasers are done with, you'll have to get rid of his hands once more.
    Remove them as before, then continue to the head again, also as before.
    Continue this until the boss is finished.
    
    ~~~
    
    After the battle, go to the Dark Space to heal and save. Leave it and proceed
    to the next floor. Proceed there to find the Dark-variation of your second
    main boss.
    
    =============================================================================
                                   BOSS: Dark Viper
                                        HP: 40
    =============================================================================
    
    Anyhow, we'll first describe your opponent's attacks. He'll fly around the area
    a bit before an attack. One attack is a spinning feather you can out-run. It
    will split up eventually into four feathers that you can out-walk or dodge
    with Aura.
    
    Another attack is a stream of feathers, which can only be fired to the
    southwest, south, or southeast. Try to stay out of the bird's way for this
    one. It also makes your opponent remain still, so if you already were out of
    the way, take this as a free pass to do some damage.
    
    Another attack involves the opponent's firing of six feathers in one direction.
    As with the previous attack, stay out of the way, generally out of his direct
    facing.
    
    To defeat your opponent, it will be a mostly dodge-and-slash sort of deal. Just
    get him when you can.
    
    ~~~
    
    After the battle, backtrack to the Dark Space to heal and save if you need to,
    then proceed up the floors some more. When you reach the room with the stones,
    get into their center to be sent up higher in the tower. Proceed along some
    more to another ornate door to fight the Vampires.
    
    =============================================================================
                               BOSS: Dark Vampire (x2)
                                     HP: 40 each
    =============================================================================
    
    Oh boy, this fight again. Well, be ready to use an Herb, just like before,
    because this is truly a tough boss.
    
    Each vampire will be able to stand on an intersection to and fire off a line of
    fire or electricity on the paths around it. The blond vampire only fires off
    one shot, but the black-haired one will fire one off on every available path.
    These are quite fast and cannot be outrun. The only way to avoid them is get on
    another path, or to use Aura.
    
    Another attack is more of a counterattack. Upon being hit, a vampire will emit
    four orbs of energy to circle around it. That is what makes this boss a pain --
    you have to hit, back up, and still avoid the elemental line above. What makes
    it worse is that the vampire will probably move around after the orbs start
    circling it and hit you. 
    
    Finally, the last attack this duo can use can only occur when they both are
    still alive. They will get opposite each other and make a big ball of energy
    that is obscenely powerful versus their other attacks. When you see it, hurry
    up and use your Aura.
    
    Your fight plan, otherwise, is pretty basic. Since we have two to go after,
    start with the dark-haired one, as he is more dangerous. Once the fight
    starts, go up to the vampire you want to go after and hit him about six-seven
    times, then run away. Continue tracking that one and, when possible, hit it
    two or three times, then back off again. Following this pattern will soon
    defeat your opponent. Repeat with the other one.
    
    ~~~
    
    After that battle, continue upward, as you can't really heal all that well
    without a Dark Space. You'll soon find the next boss, which is dramatically
    easier.
    
    =============================================================================
                                BOSS: Dark Sand Fanger
                                        HP: 40
    =============================================================================
    
    To begin with its attacks... With one of them, you'll find see a swirling pit
    appear and the Sand Fanger will launch from it and go way up. This initial
    launch can damage you, as well as its downward attack. As it goes up and down,
    are able to hit it, but do so safely.
    
    Another attack is similar to the above, but instead of going straight up, the
    Sand Fanger will arch over to the middle or so of the area, then go to the far
    side. You can damage it here, but it isn't worth the bother.
    
    The Sand Fanger's other attack is where you'll really find damaging it easy.
    Another swirling pit appears, but the boss just sticks his head out. During
    this time, until he sticks his head back in the ground, just ignore all else
    that happens and continually hit his head. During this attack, the boss may
    release a mini-version of it and/or a richocheting rock ball. Both have 3 HP
    and can be dealt with easily, which they should, lest this battle go on too
    long and they start to really become frustrating.
    
    Your offensive strategy is relatively simple. Simply go around and dodge the
    boss's attacks. In the meantime, try to hit the boss when safely possible, and
    never pass up the chance for the attack mentioned above!
    
    ~~~
    
    After this battle, proceed further to find a balcony. There, speak with the
    big bird (that looks quite a bit like the Viper) to fly up much higher in the
    tower. Go through the door on the left upon disembarking and proceed further
    to fight the last repeat boss of the game.
    
    =============================================================================
                                BOSS: Dark Mummy Queen
                                        HP: 40
    =============================================================================
    
    As usual, we'll begin with the boss attacks.
    
    Firstly, the Mummy Queen will often split into eight spirits after being hit.
    After the initial launch (where the spirits are angled in intervals of around
    forty-five degrees), they'll start to home in on you. You can usually warp
    upstairs or jump off the ledge to be safe from the latter bit. They'll go back
    into the Mummy Queen shortly.
    
    There is another variation of the above attack. Instead of just spreading out,
    the spirits will form a ring and start flying around. To make them turn back
    into your main boss, you have to hit the unblinking spirit. Stabbing at the
    ring from a distance with Shadow could work.
    
    Another attack she can use is to make large bricks fall from the sky. Not
    much you can do about it other than move out of the way.
    
    The last attack she has is to fire a ball of energy at you. You can move out
    of the way, warp up a level, jump down a level, or have Shadow use Aura. Not
    exactly worth mentioning.
    
    You don't really have a true offensive strategy in this fight, anyways. All
    you really have to do is hit her and dodge the attacks. Simple concept, right?
    
    ~~~
    
    After the brawl, proceed along the floors for a bit. Once you reach the
    Vampire, speak with him to go further up in the tower. (Not at the top yet.)
    Leave this room to find Kara again. Continue to the right and go into the Dark
    Space to heal and save -- seriously save, as we're about to reach the point of
    no return.
    
    Additionally, at this point, you can speak with the spirit next to the Dark
    Space to return to Dao. If you have 50 Red Jewels, you may want to do so,
    because you now have access to the optional dungeon, detailed in Section XV.
    You also do it if you want to do something else, but the optional dungeon is
    the main thing.
    
    Anyhow, if you opted not to do it, or came here later, go through the doorway
    AFTER saving. Trust me, the following boss series will be painful enough as it
    is without you having to do a bunch of redos because you ran out of Herbs and
    had to start over.
    
    In this room, the spirit of Olman, Will's father, will speak with you for a
    bit in a very plot-revealing manner before teleporting you to the top of the
    Tower of Babel. Once the other spirits appear, speak with them, then Olman and
    Kara. You'll then merge into the Dark Warrior, Shadow, with his ultimate
    capability - the long range attack known as the Firebird. The final boss will
    soon commence...
    
    =============================================================================
                           FINAL BOSS, PART ONE: The Comet
                                        HP: 20
    =============================================================================
    
    A very simple boss, but one that finish you off if you're not careful. This
    boss will only use one attack on occasion, which is the releasing of green
    lightning. You'll have enough warning to run aside or to use Aura to dodge
    them.
    
    To damage the boss, it will occasionally open its mouth (yes, the boss is the
    face of the comet) before releasing lightning. During the "calm periods", just
    constantly unleash Firebirds at it before dodging the lightning.
    
    Soon after that boss, the final one begins...
    
    ~~~
    
    =============================================================================
                           FINAL BOSS, PART TWO: Dark Gaia
                                        HP: 40
    =============================================================================
    
    This battle is not truly difficult, so long as you pay attention. Dark Gaia
    has three attacks, and they are easily dealt with, but they go on constantly
    and make the battle a bit more difficult.
    
    Firstly, from either side of the battlefield, blue bubbles will appear. These
    will zig-zaggedly try to run into you and damage you. The only way to deal with
    these is to hit them with Firebirds. You can also use Aura to dodge them, but
    that won't get rid of them. I found that standing slightly to the right of the
    vertical center of the area and firing constantly upward helped stave these off
    with minimal effort, though I did have to move eventually.
    
    Another attack Dark Gaia can use is to launch two balls of electricity at you.
    These will, after launching, home in on you very quickly. To deal with them,
    use your L/R telekinetic shield, or dodge with Aura. I'd prefer the former, as
    it takes less time and will not as easily let the bubbles propagate.
    
    Dark Gaia's final offensive move occurs much less often than the other two,
    but is still a force to be reckoned with. To know when it is occuring, keep an
    eye on her head. When her mouth opens up, you able to damage her. Do so for
    three to five Firebirds (more or less will get in, depending on whether you
    were already aiming there), then use Aura to dodge the laser beam that will
    inevitably fall down.
    
    The offense was already mentioned. For the majority of the battle, you will
    fend off Dark Gaia's attacks -- Firebirding blue bubbles, shielding from the
    electricity, and Aura-dodging the mouth laser. The only chance you have to
    damage her is when her mouth opens for the mouth laser -- aim right for it for
    three to five Firebirds, then Aura-dodge the inevitable laser. As this is the
    final battle, you can get rid of all your Herbs -- there is no post-story to
    this game.
    
    Good luck!
    
    ~~~
    
    After the battle, there will be a long and drawn-out series of scenes and the
    game credits. Enjoy as you see how Will and his friends fare in the new (or
    should I say "old") world. (And wonder how Seth came to life again.)

    After collecting all fifty Red Jewels in the whole game, you are allowed to
    access a secret, optional dungeon - Gem's Mansion. This can be accessed only
    after getting the Red Jewel within the Tower of Babel, then returning to Dao
    and speaking with Gem the Jeweler.
    
    What do you gain from this?
    
    Well, you get the satisfaction of having done something rather difficult to
    do, unless you used an FAQ or something. Within the dungeon, you can find an
    Herb, one of the mere twelve HP-restoring items in the game.
    
    There actually is little else. You won't gain any stat bonuses, and you have to
    fight some semi-difficult enemies. You'll probably some eyestrain (you'll know
    what I mean when you get there) as well. The only thing worth mentioning is the
    boss, Solid Arm, there, who is a boss from another Soul Blazer trilogy game.
    Winning the boss does little more than reveal more of the plot.

    You'll probably note that these are mere power-ups of the enemies fought in the
    Diamond Mine. There are very few of these beasts (only 38 total), but don't
    take that for granted. They still can hurt you, and there are no Dark Spaces in
    this dungeon. Assuming you haven't actually beat the game yet, I'm quite sure
    you'll want to avoid wasting Herbs. Since you get no stat boosts, I'll only
    really state the monsters you need to defeat.
    
    Upon arriving in this short dungeon, go west to find two Red Lizards. Defeat
    the western one to open the path forward. Use it and go further west to find
    two more Red Lizards and a Blue Floating Eyeball. Defeat the Blue Floating
    Eyeball to open the path ahead again.
    
    Go west, north, and west. You'll find a pair of Blue Floating Eyeballs and a
    Red Lizard. Defeat them (or at least hit them out of the way) and head north.
    Go through the gauntlet of Blue Floating Eyeballs, four in all, pushing them
    out of the way as you go. You'll soon come to a pair of Blue Floating Eyeballs
    and a pair of Red Lizards. Use the Psycho Slide to safely bypass them.
    
    Afterwards, head east and south to find another such gauntlet, this one
    containing a Red Lizard amongst four Blue Floating Eyeballs. Continue south
    and east to find a staircase. Go across, Psycho Sliding the Red Lizard to
    avoid it. On the floor again, go north to a dead end. Push aside or defeat the
    Blue Floating Eyeballs to find the chest, which contains the Herb.
    
    Go south and past the stairway, then head to the west. You'll find another Blue
    Floating Eyeball and a Red Lizard. Defeat or bypass them, then Psycho Slide
    through the gap under the stairs.
    
    On the other side, head north and defeat/bypass the Blue Floating Eyeball. Go
    west and do the same with the Red Lizard, then go over the stairs to repeat
    this with another Red Lizard. You'll soon find a door and the boss.
    
    =============================================================================
                               OPTIONAL BOSS: Solid Arm
                                        HP: 40

    NOTE OF TRIVIA: The Solid Arm is a palette-swap of the first major boss in
                    the prequel to this game: Metal Mantis from the SNES game
                    Soul Blazer. (Play it, it's great!)
    
    In this small room, you'll note the two platforms. The north one is for Solid
    Arm and where he resides over the course of the whole fight. The south one is
    where you begin. You can move freely between the two by using the three
    conveyor belts in the middle of the platforms.
    
    Solid Arm's first attack will be while you're on the southern platform and
    approximately lined up. Three fireballs will be launched simultaneously, reach
    the south platform, and somewhat home in on you. Block them with telekinesis,
    but you must face the proper direction.
    
    Another attack occurs whilst you're on the south platform, but not lined up
    with Solid Arm. He'll fire a fireball forty-five degrees off of due south,
    which will also somewhat home in on you. As before, block it with telekinesis.
    
    The final attack will occur when you and Solid Arm are on the same platform.
    He'll get close to you and swing his arms around. He will be impossible to
    damage during this time, and can do this for long periods of time. DO NOT GET
    TRAPPED IN THE CORNER!!
    
    Now, there is a simple strategy to beat this boss, albeit rather long.
    
    At the start of the battle, walk up to the start of the center conveyor belt,
    not on it. Telekinetically block the fireballs that are launched, then smack
    Solid Arm once -- no more or less -- with the flute, then return to blocking.
    Repeat this porcess. The only thing to note about this, other than that it
    will take eighty hits, is that you will slowly get pushed back by the fireballs
    as you block them. When you do, walk up very slightly to your start position.
    Remember that, during the blocking, you need to block the middle and left
    fireballs, which is done by only doing due north walking, because Solid Arm is
    off-center.
    
    ~~~
    
    After the battle, you are taken back to the highest Dark Space of the Tower of
    Babel, just before the final boss sequence. You'll probably have no need to do
    anything else in the game now, except the final boss. So, congratulations!

                                    BOSS: Castoth
                                        HP: 40
                                Location: Larai Cliff
    =============================================================================
    
    I would prefer that you use Freedan for this boss. Using him makes the fight
    so much easier because of the range of his sword and the fact that he is twice
    as powerful as Will. Anyhow, we'll begin by describing your boss's attacks.
    
    He can use a lightning-fire attack that bounces around the room. Only one is
    activate at any given time. It is fairly easy to avoid, so long as you keep an
    eye on it.
    
    There is another attack that requires his claws. He'll basically try to scratch
    you or something. Stay against the wall to avoid it.
    
    Another attack involves a stream of fire going down the path. Stay against the
    wall to avoid it.
    
    Finally, your boss can shoot lasers from his head. For some reason, despite the
    range of the lasers, staying in the southwest/southeast corners works just fine
    to live through it. You'll notice this when he starts to shake a fair deal.
    
    Anyhow, onto business. Our first goal should be to remove the hands. As soon as
    possible, move around to the southwest corner of the pit (not the room) and get
    against the wall. Quickly tap Up on the D-Pad to turn around and rapidly start
    slashing at your opponent's hands. During this time, keep aware of the
    lightning-fire attack. After five hits from Freedan, the hand will be gone.
    Repeat this with the other hand.
    
    For a few seconds after removing Castoth's hands, just dodge his attacks for
    a bit. Eventually, his eyes will widen and you should get against the central
    wall, quick-tap Up on the D-Pad, and start slicing up his face. This will keep
    you from the fire-line attack. All you have to watch for at this point is the
    lightning-fire attack and his lasers. Remember, once he starts to shake a lot,
    head to the southwest/southeast corners.
    
    After the lasers are done with, you'll have to get rid of his hands once more.
    Remove them as before, then continue to the head again, also as before.
    Continue this until the boss is finished.

                                     BOSS: Viper
                                        HP: 40
                                 Location: Sky Garden
    =============================================================================
    
    This boss starts with you having to run up a collapsing bridge. It is short and
    not exactly easy to fall off of, so don't worry. You'll see your boss on the
    other side.
    
    Weird name for a bird, eh?
    
    Anyhow, we'll first describe your opponent's attacks. He'll fly around the area
    a bit before an attack. One attack is a spinning feather you can out-run. It
    will split up eventually into four feathers that you can out-walk.
    
    Another attack is a stream of feathers, which can only be fired to the
    southwest, south, or southeast. Try to stay out of the bird's way for this
    one. It also makes your opponent remain still, so if you already were out of
    the way, take this as a free pass to do some damage.
    
    Another attack involves the opponent's firing of six feathers in one direction.
    As with the previous attack, stay out of the way, generally out of his direct
    facing.
    
    To defeat your opponent, it will be a mostly dodge-and-slash sort of deal. A
    long one at that - just get him when you can, and charge Dark Friars when you
    can't.

                                  BOSS: Vampire (x2)
                                     HP: 40 each
                                     Location: Mu
    =============================================================================
    
    First thing to note. Erik is in this room, and he has a bomb strapped to him.
    (No, he is not a suicide bomber.) He somehow became these vampires' hostage,
    and this bomb will go off in 140 seconds (that is a little over 2.3 minutes).
    Letting the timer run out will provide nothing for you but death - you don't
    even get to see an explosion.
    
    Anyhow, to the fight.
    
    Each vampire will be able to stand on an intersection to and fire off a line of
    fire or electricity on the paths around it. The blond vampire only fires off
    one shot, but the black-haired one will fire one off on every available path.
    These are quite fast and cannot be outrun. The only way to avoid them is get on
    another path.
    
    Another attack is more of a counterattack. Upon being hit, a vampire will emit
    four orbs of energy to circle around it. That is what makes this boss a pain --
    you have to hit, back up, and still avoid the elemental line above. What makes
    it worse is that the vampire will probably move around after the orbs start
    circling it and hit you. 
    
    Finally, the last attack this duo can use can only occur when they both are
    still alive. They will get opposite each other and make a big ball of energy
    that is obscenely powerful versus their other attacks. When you see it, dash
    over to the other side of the area. I'm not kidding - this will quickly
    eliminate your HP because there is very little delay between noticing what
    will happen and it happening.
    
    Your fight plan, otherwise, is pretty basic. Since we have two to go after,
    start with the dark-haired one, as he is more dangerous. Once the fight
    starts, go up to the vampire you want to go after and hit him about six-seven
    times, then run away. Continue tracking that one and, when possible, hit it
    two or three times, then back off again. Following this pattern will soon
    defeat your opponent. Repeat with the other one.
    
    Some final notes. Firstly, you see those little pits around the area?
    Freedan's sword can actually go across them horizontally, so consider this.
    Also, be prepared to use some Herbs in this fight. Not a bunch, just one or
    two. This boss will get pretty hectic pretty fast, so don't fear. If you
    somehow empty your supply to where you have less than three Herbs left, you
    better reset the game. You want to save their limited number (twelve total)
    for emergencies.

                                  BOSS: Sand Fanger
                                        HP: 40
                             Location: China's Great Wall
    =============================================================================
    
    To begin with its attacks... With one of them, you'll find see a quicksand pit
    appear and the Sand Fanger will launch from it and go way up. This initial
    launch can damage you, as well as its downward attack. As it goes up and down,
    are able to hit it, but do so safely.
    
    Another attack is similar to the above, but instead of going straight up, the
    Sand Fanger will arch over to the middle or so of the area, then go to the far
    side. You can damage it here, but it isn't worth the bother.
    
    The Sand Fanger's other attack is where you'll really find damaging it easy.
    Another quicksand pit appears, but the boss just sticks his head out. During
    this time, until he sticks his head back in the ground, just ignore all else
    that happens and continually hit his head. During this attack, the boss may
    release a mini-version of it and/or a richocheting rock ball. Both have 3 HP
    and can be dealt with easily, which they should, lest this battle go on too
    long and they start to really become frustrating.
    
    Your offensive strategy is relatively simple. Simply go around and dodge the
    boss's attacks. In the meantime, try to hit the boss when safely possible, and
    never pass up the chance for the attack mentioned above! Don't try using any
    of your special powers, either; just stick to plain attacks.

                                  Location: Pyramid
    =============================================================================
    
    As usual, we'll begin with the boss attacks.
    
    Firstly, the Mummy Queen will often split into eight spirits after being hit.
    After the initial launch (where the spirits are angled in intervals of around
    forty-five degrees), they'll start to home in on you. You can usually warp
    upstairs or jump off the ledge to be safe from the latter bit. They'll go back
    into the Mummy Queen shortly.
    
    There is another variation of the above attack. Instead of just spreading out,
    the spirits will form a ring and start flying around. To make them turn back
    into your main boss, you have to hit the unblinking spirit. Stabbing at the
    ring from a distance with Shadow could work, as would Freedan's boosted Dark
    Friar.
    
    Another attack she can use is to make large bricks fall from the roof. Not
    much you can do about it other than move out of the way.
    
    The last attack she has is to fire a ball of energy at you. You can move out
    of the way, warp up a level, jump down a level, or have Shadow use Aura. Not
    exactly worth mentioning.
    
    You don't really have a true offensive strategy in this fight, anyways. All
    you really have to do is hit her and dodge the attacks. Simple concept, right?

    =============================================================================
    
    Wwe'll begin by describing your boss's attacks. Go ahead and note that, since
    you are using Shadow, you can go ahead and use Aura to dodge these all.
    
    He can create two lightning-fires attack that bounces around the room. Only two
    can be activate at any given time. It is fairly easy to avoid, so long as you
    keep an eye on it.
    
    There is another attack that requires his claws. He'll basically try to scratch
    you or something. Stay against the south edge to avoid it.
    
    Another attack involves a stream of fire going down the path. Stay against the
    wall to avoid it.
    
    Finally, your boss can shoot lasers from his head. For some reason, despite the
    range of the lasers, staying in the southwest/southeast corners works just fine
    to live through it. You'll notice this when he starts to shake a fair deal.
    
    Anyhow, onto business. Our first goal should be to remove the hands. As soon as
    possible, move around to the southwest corner of the pit (not the room) and get
    against the wall. Quickly tap Up on the D-Pad to turn around and rapidly start
    slashing at your opponent's hands. During this time, keep aware of the
    lightning-fire attack. After five hits from Freedan, the hand will be gone.
    Repeat this with the other hand.
    
    For a few seconds after removing Castoth's hands, just dodge his attacks for
    a bit. Eventually, his eyes will widen and you should get against the central
    wall, quick-tap Up on the D-Pad, and start slicing up his face. This will keep
    you from the fire-line attack. All you have to watch for at this point is the
    lightning-fire attack and his lasers. Remember, once he starts to shake a lot,
    head to the southwest/southeast corners.
    
    After the lasers are done with, you'll have to get rid of his hands once more.
    Remove them as before, then continue to the head again, also as before.
    Continue this until the boss is finished.

    A very simple boss, but one that finish you off if you're not careful. This
    boss will only use one attack on occasion, which is the releasing of green
    lightning. You'll have enough warning to run aside or to use Aura to dodge
    them.
    
    To damage the boss, it will occasionally open its mouth (yes, the boss is the
    face of the comet) before releasing lightning. During the "calm periods", just
    constantly unleash Firebirds at it before dodging the lightning.

                           FINAL BOSS, PART TWO: Dark Gaia
                                        HP: 40
                               Location: Tower of Babel
    =============================================================================
    
    This battle is not truly difficult, so long as you pay attention. Dark Gaia
    has three attacks, and they are easily dealt with, but they go on constantly
    and make the battle a bit more difficult.
    
    Firstly, from either side of the battlefield, blue bubbles will appear. These
    will zig-zaggedly try to run into you and damage you. The only way to deal with
    these is to hit them with Firebirds. You can also use Aura to dodge them, but
    that won't get rid of them. I found that standing slightly to the right of the
    vertical center of the area and firing constantly upward helped stave these off
    with minimal effort, though I did have to move eventually.
    
    Another attack Dark Gaia can use is to launch two balls of electricity at you.
    These will, after launching, home in on you very quickly. To deal with them,
    use your L/R telekinetic shield, or dodge with Aura. I'd prefer the former, as
    it takes less time and will not as easily let the bubbles propagate.
    
    Dark Gaia's final offensive move occurs much less often than the other two,
    but is still a force to be reckoned with. To know when it is occuring, keep an
    eye on her head. When her mouth opens up, you able to damage her. Do so for
    three to five Firebirds (more or less will get in, depending on whether you
    were already aiming there), then use Aura to dodge the laser beam that will
    inevitably fall down.
    
    The offense was already mentioned. For the majority of the battle, you will
    fend off Dark Gaia's attacks -- Firebirding blue bubbles, shielding from the
    electricity, and Aura-dodging the mouth laser. The only chance you have to
    damage her is when her mouth opens for the mouth laser -- aim right for it for
    three to five Firebirds, then Aura-dodge the inevitable laser. As this is the
    final battle, you can get rid of all your Herbs -- there is no post-story to
    this game.
    
    Good luck!

                               OPTIONAL BOSS: Solid Arm
                                        HP: 40
                               Location: Gem's Mansion
    =============================================================================
    
    In this small room, you'll note the two platforms. The north one is for Solid
    Arm and where he resides over the course of the whole fight. The south one is
    where you begin. You can move freely between the two by using the three
    conveyor belts in the middle of the platforms.
    
    Solid Arm's first attack will be while you're on the southern platform and
    approximately lined up. Three fireballs will be launched simultaneously, reach
    the south platform, and somewhat home in on you. Block them with telekinesis,
    but you must face the proper direction.
    
    Another attack occurs whilst you're on the south platform, but not lined up
    with Solid Arm. He'll fire a fireball forty-five degrees off of due south,
    which will also somewhat home in on you. As before, block it with telekinesis.
    
    The final attack will occur when you and Solid Arm are on the same platform.
    He'll get close to you and swing his arms around. He will be impossible to
    damage during this time, and can do this for long periods of time. DO NOT GET
    TRAPPED IN THE CORNER!!
    
    Now, there is a simple strategy to beat this boss, albeit rather long.
    
    At the start of the battle, walk up to the start of the center conveyor belt,
    not on it. Telekinetically block the fireballs that are launched, then smack
    Solid Arm once -- no more or less -- with the flute, then return to blocking.
    Repeat this porcess. The only thing to note about this, other than that it
    will take eighty hits, is that you will slowly get pushed back by the fireballs
    as you block them. When you do, walk up very slightly to your start position.
    Remember that, during the blocking, you need to block the middle and left
    fireballs, which is done by only doing due north walking, because Solid Arm is
    off-center.
