Hi every 1 how do I kill aden the monster that to rinoa to is body
There are a few secret GFs in Final Fantasy VIII; Bahamut, Cactuar, Doomtrain, Eden, Odin, and Tonberry. Here's how to get them;
BAHAMUT: Fly the Ragnarok all the way Southwest and you'll eventually run into a place that looks like ruins. Enter this place and then enter inside. DON'T MOVE if the core is glowing, if you do you'll be forced into a battle with a Ruby Dragon. Now, when you reach the core, press X. Now choose the most bravest choices for the answers. No matter what, you'll have to fight Ruby Dragons. On the final question, go all the way down to the invisible answer and choose it. Then you'll be forced into a battle with Bahamut. If you beat him, you get him!
CACTUAR: Fly the Ragnarok to the little Island off of Kashkabald Desert, this place is called Cactuar Island. Now, do you see the little Cactus that keeps popping up out of the sand? Well, if you reach that, you'll be forced into a battle with Jumbo Cactuar. Jumbo's weak to Water, but he's got a MAJOR load of HP! I suggest having Squall, Irvine, and Quistis in your party, all with their ultimate weapons. For beating Jumbo, you get the Cactuar!
DOOMTRAIN: If I remember correctly, you have to have these items in your inventory;
-Solomon Ring (x1)
-Malboro Tentacle (x6)
-Steel Pipe (x6)
Remedy+s can be made by refining 60 Remedies into Remedy+s. Malboro Tentacles can be mugged from Malboros, refined from Malboro Cards, etc. Steel Pipes are mugged from Wendigos, which are found in Timber's Forests and Deling City's Plains. Now, with these items in stock, head to Tears' Point and pick up the shiny thing near the Statue. This is the Solomon Ring. Now, pause the game, select Item, and select the Solomon Ring. You now have Doomtrain!
EDEN: Remember a while ago you had to fight Bahamut? Well, return to that place and travel all the way down to the basement to encounter Ultima Weapon (for digit usage guides, refer to the walkthrough section). MAKE SURE SOMEONE HAS DRAW BEFORE FIGHTING HIM! This reason is because you can only DRAW Eden from Ultima. Beat Ultima with Eden drawn to get Eden, the Ultimate Guardian Force!
ODIN: Somewhere near the Southern Mountains lies a Diamond-Shaped Pillar. Enter this pillar to find a time limit (for a guide on opening the door to Odin, refer to a Walkthrough). Once his door is opened, he will say, "The Weak Shall Perish. The Strong Shall Triumph." Now, Odin is by far the most EASIEST boss EVER known, because he never attacks you until the timer runs out. If the timer does happen to run out, he will kill you. Defeat him to get him!
TONBERRY: Don't leave the place you fought Odin at! Return and you'll soon find yourself in battles with Tonberries. Eventually, after fighting enough Tonberries, you'll encounter the Tonberry King! Defeat him to obtain Tonberry!
PuPu the Alien Walkthrough
Requirements: Ragnarok, 5 Elixirs, Enc-None
Reward: Aegis Amulet, PuPu's Card
Okay. First of all, in order to encounter even the UFO, we need to see the UFO in four different spots. The spots are listed here:
Spot #1: Timber - Mandy Beach
Spot #2: Esthar - Kashkabald Desert
Spot #3: Winhill - Winhill Bluffs
Spot #4: It's a little island off the shore of a Crash Site that seperates
Trabia and Esthar. You'll know when you get there.
After all four locations of the UFO are done, head to Grandidi Forest. Here, you'll actually get to FIGHT the UFO! When you defeated it, it'll go all beserk and crazy and explode. For defeating it, you get an Aegis Amulet. NOw head to Balamb, near where Balamb Garden used to be. You'll soon encounter PuPu the Alien. Make sure you have Item equipped for your party! Now when you encounter him, he'll say "Elixir please!" or "More Elixir, please!". If you give him 5 Elixirs, you get his card, which is the rarest card in the entire game. If you kill him, you get an Accelerator. If you Devour him, you get Spd+1. After doing whatever you want to with this little Alien, you complete this side-quest.
Requirements: At least Shear Trigger, some Aura, Level 10+, Enc-None
Okay. First, you must go to the structure southwest of Kashkabald Desert. This is the Centra Ruins, but it's a tower where a man named Odin awaits to be your next GF. Go all the way up the stairs. When you reach a temple, head in it, and there will be a stone block on front of you. Step on the block, and then head up the ladder to the left. Press X on the little power source and things will get moving. Climb back down the ladder, and you'll notice that there's something glowing in between the two ladders. Press X on it to be revealed a secret stairway. Go all the way up it, then climb up this small ladder here that leads to a gargoyle. Take out the eye, and then continue up the stairs. When you reach the very very top, there's another eye. Put in the eye that you hold and you'll be given a code. You'll have to remember this code, so right it down somewhere in case you forget. Then take out both of the gargoyle eyes and return to the other gargoyle. Put in both eyes and you'll have to enter the code. When you do, a secret passageway opens that leads to Odin. The cool thing about this is 1) He doesn't have that much HP. 2) He doesn't attack you at all, until the timer reaches 0:00. When it does, he whips out a Zantetsuken on you, and it's Game Over. So put some Aura on Squall, and then kick Odin's big butt with Renzokuken. I beat him with Shear Trigger once, so there's no reasoning why or if you can't beat him. You just need at least 50 Str, that's all. When he's defeated, he joins your party. And now, you can fight the Tonberry King!
Requirements: Lion Heart and/or high Str, at least 7000 HP, at least 20 Aura
Those nasty little Tonberries! When you first fight them, you might think that it'll be a piece of cake. Well, guess what? YOU THOUGHT WRONG! They may seem weak, but if they get to close to you, they sometimes whip out Everybody's Grudge, which can do up to 9999 HP worth of damage! They can also just stab you and kill you. Now, after defeating Odin and getting all of the requirements as listed above, Head to the Centra Ruins. Make sure no Enc abilites are equipped! Now, you'll soon start fighting Tonberries. Quickly cast Aura and whip out some Renzokuken on them. After fighting enough Tonberries, you'll soon fight the Tonberry King. He's a nasty little devil! Like before, whip some Renzokuken on him too, and he'll soon fall. You can mug him for a Royal Crown, but I don't really think it's worth it. After Tonberry King has fallen, Tonberry joins your party!
Before you eagerly read this, please note that you can only do this on Disk 2. Also, the only time on Disc 2 that you can do this is on the area where you found Edea's orphanage, and you are fighting against the floating ship of Galbadia. There is an area that I found where if you fight the monsters, you can easily get from 600 experience to 700 experience after every battle. Using this method of training, I leveled up all my characters by 20 levels.
Alright, first walk into the main area of the ship, and save your game. Now walk into the hallway on the left, and then walk into the doorway on the left. You should now be in a giant room where a ice hockey stadium is. Run on the ice field until you encounter some monsters that look like hockey players. Use Ifrit and quickly kill them. Now after the battle you should get a lot of experience, and alot of AP points for your GF as well. All you have to do is keep repeating the step over and over until you get your party to the level that you want them to be on.
The best thing about this is that you are guaranteed to get over 500 experience points after each battle. Every battle you will see the enemy arrive in groups of either 3, or 4. So after every two battles, you should have had all your characters in your party grow a level. Maybe two. Your GFs will also grow levels, and get either 9 or 12 AP points every battle.
This here takes a lot of time and work.
The needed items are and in order to obtain:
4x Dragon Fangs
12x Pulsa Ammo
First: (Recommended Requirements: Leveled up near 20 and Sleep attack helps.) To get the Dragon Fang you need to kill T-Rexaur (Lv.20-29). You can find them in Balamb Garden or just outside of the Garden in any forest. Since the mobs level up as you do, the only trouble is you have to level up to where the T-Rexaur are leveled up enough to drop the Dragon Fangs. They are a low drop rate, but will drop them.
Second: (Recommended Requirements: Leveled up more, Mug Ability "Diablos", and Ammo-RF Ability ""Ifrit") To get the Pulse Ammo you can get it realtively easy in the second dream with Laguna. The item you need is at least three "Laser Cannon". There are two ways to get it. Both ways include getting it from the Elastoids, the tall machine-like mobs with four long legs. If they are level 20-29 the drop rate is extremely low, but possible. If they are level 30+, the drop rate increases, but is still few and far between. The second way, and easiest, is to use the "Mug Ability" on a level 30+ ones. If they are level 30+, every stolen item is a "Laser Cannon". So you know, the Elastoids only spawn in a few areas of the dreamworld with Laguna, but you can find them easily in the area with the yellow/blue catwalk with the stiars and the pinkish background.
Third: (Recommended Requirements: Berserk Attack) Near Dollet there is a shore due west. Run along the sand shore for a chance to fight Adamantoise, but mostly you will fight Fastitocalon-F. The Adamantoise always come in two's and cast on each other Protect, Shell, and Healing Wind, which cures them for about 4500-5600HP. So either you do extreme damage, or attack with Berserk, which prevents them from doing anyting but attack. Here again, the Adamantine is a rare drop rate in the levels of 20-29, but level 30+ it's a 100% drop if anything drops.
After you have all items, just run due east to Dollet and you will find a "Junk Store" to make your priceless Gun Blade. It is just right across the street from where the car was smashed in the earlier cutscene by the X-ATM092 while it was chasing you. (Notice: You DO NOT need the weapon book that gives the item requiremnts for the Lionheart Gun Blade.)
On an important side note: If you are like me, and sometimes go through the game with Sqaull only and killing everyone else in your party there is something to remember. The mob's levels are based on the average of your characters levels. So, if they are all level 10-15 or so, you will have to be near level 50, or even higher, for the mobs to be level 30ish.
For this cheat to work go to the menu screen. Go to that screen where you can change the controller settings (buttons,vibration,etc.) change the confirmation button thing to "memory." once you go into battle select all of the things you want your characters to draw and then just hold the "X" button (or whatever you have for that) you could also just securely put something heavy over that button (a hardcover book, something like that) and go get something to eat. You'll have a 100 Cures or Firas or whatever in no time!!! Just don't use this on tough enemies that aren't handled easily (cough* ruby dragons cough*)
Quezactol: Check your computor in Quistis classroom.
Shiva: same as Quezactol.
Ifrit: Fire Cavern.
Siren:Draw fom Evorlet on the radio tower/Draw from Tri Point in Ultimecias Castle

Mini Mog: Mog amulet from pocket station.
Moomba: aquire from pocket station.
These are the GFs that aren't included in the main GFs that learn abilities.
Odin: Climb the Centra Ruins on the southern continent and defeat Odin in less then 20 min. As long as you can deal alot of GF damage against him you can win since he doesnt attack. You should have over 15 minutes to beat him if you do the tower good. His GF is completley random, when he apears he will use Zanketsu: a one hit kill for all enemies.(The Tonberry summon is also obtainable here but you should be pretty strong to challenge 20 tonberrys in a row and the Master Tonberry himself)
Chicibo: After completing the Chocobo Forests you will be able to use "Boko". To summon him, use a Gyshal Green to summon him. Buy these from Chocoboy or get a few from revisiting Whinhill twoards the end of disc 2.
The guardian force is none other that........Eden! It can cause a five-digit-damage to each opponent plus boosting to the full 250.at the boosting of 250,it can reach about 10000-15000hp beginning of it's level (level 30)but slowly when leveled up it gain more power and the damage will be much higher than you expect.
You can get it by drawing it from ultima weapon or tiamat(if you missed)have fun and enjoy it's five-digit-damage.
I wonder can I call this a cheat.go inside balamb garden(after the fh incident if i am not wrong),go to the first floor which your dorm is located and chose to be left alone. After you have completed your rest, find zell.(i forgot where is the area though) press square and he will start off by saying this:a man from d district prison gave him some cards .after he finish his sentence you will have the option whether you will wanna play with him or not.he is an amateur and shoudnt be tough to beat.Have fun playing aganist zell.(hope it hasnt been summited cause the computer that i used previously hanged.)
When using a GF hold down select and tap square and your GF will do more damage. Don't tap square when the red X is over the hand.
At the start of the game it is really easy to beat the T-Rex. All you have to do is put him to sleep and then use Shiva on him. This is also a good way to draw all the good magic out of him.
- For this cheat you need Forbiden - Med - RF and Tool - RF abilities. - First buy 100 Phoenix Down's and use Forbiden - Med - RF to turn fifty of the Phoenid Down's. Just keep repeating this process until you have at least three Mega Phoenix's
- Finaly use Tool - RF to turn three Mega Phoenix's into 1 Phoenix Pinon, well there you go!!
1. Constantly use GF while he's human
2. After he changes use 'Phoenix Down' (click on and when the people screen comes up, press left)
