Wow...I got tons of stuff.

First things first...

To Lily Shevlin, I'm not sure if you know already but for you others.

The Fire Shrine entrance is South-East of Esto Gaza (On the Ice Continent)

But it's impossible to enter till you go to IPSEN'S CASTLE (Hilda tells you the location, on the World Map) In Ipsen's castle you find the mirrors beat the boss get out of the castle...and evenually back on the Hilda Garde 3 you can enter the Fire Shrine (Note: Only Amarant and Freya enter)

For Ben$on:

I'm sorry I couldn't give you this before but now I can answer your question about the Tartarian.

A good way to deplete his HP is to get the Dark Matter (bought at the Treno auction) and use it on him. Then just keep your characters in good health (try to attack, too) and wait for someone to get trance.

Use it on him when he is OPEN. This causes regular damage(he dosen't open only once, but many times). Keep doing this until he is dead. I think you get battle boots and I know you get good EXP and AP. Good luck!

I know that there are some really confusing cheats about Ozma on here, so I will make i..

In Alexandria b4 its destroyed as ZIdane goes to save Dagger, b4 going up all those stairs, if you go to the library and in the thirdish shelf down from the stairs, you see an ! and it will ask you if you dare to challenge it.

stupidly say yes and you will fight a book. ive seen the card, i think its called a Tartarian.

Your physical and magical attacks only do about 30 something damage to it, it flicks opens its pages and when it finds nothing which was every time except once.

It deals you some magic on the uglier side of nasty, the one time it opened to a page and it said "found something" a blue head appeared, like on the card, and i hit it for around 850h..

Only use 1 attack at a time to get the book to open (if the book opens & you hit it with a physical attack it will automatically close again)never use physical attacks on it. Use Amarrant & Freya as healers only. It's a good idea to have auto-potion equipped as well. Only use Vivi's fire spells & Zidane's thevery tricks on it. When the book opens & the blue head appears use fire spells to hurt it. The book will close again eventually. Use the same procedure to get it to open again. Focus on keeping your party alive & only hit it when you have an opening. Keep doing this until it dies & you will receive a ..

The trick to geting the chest behind that big lady in the Dali Farm is easy. after you have left Dali for the first time and you go to Terono for the card game.

O.k, this is an excellent cheat but its really hard to do.

First of all you have to arrange your party to IKO, Quina, Zidane and Vivi.

Play the game untill Iko gets a move called Jewel.

Now go around fighting monsters, and doing Jewel. When you have 1000 jewels go to dagueroo and there should be this dragon statue.

Put all your jewels in and you sould get 10 aquamarines. Now go near the chocobo forest and kill three monsters, and each time vivi has to finish them off. Now call your chocobo then play chocobo hot and cold.

Get enough points for the robe of lords. Now go to the place where you van ..

This ain`t really a cheat but, When u are in the Evil Forest there is a fountain near the big plant monster entrance, go near the dripping water and the ! sign will appear.

Press x and your HP and MP are topped. You can use this trick to grow levels and get billions of Gil( only if have a couple hours to spend).

When steiner and marcus swing their cage to free themselves and crash it.

You can fight an infinite amount of easy battles with lots of ap and exp.

Simply walk over to the ladder on the far side of the screen and wait for the little alexandrian soldiers to come after you.

Look around Treno and behind a forest u will see a cave, go in and u will learn

about vivi's past get the treasure in there.

Also go there later when u have a dark blue chocobo, and go to the ledge at the back of the place where u first saw Quan and give your chocobo a dead pepper.

It will jump into some foam and you get loads of top stuff including Tiger Racket for Dagger or Garnet.

To defeat Kraken, use zidane, vivi, steiner and dagger. First, have vivi use thundaga on all its body parts.

This causes it to use waterga on itself,

and sometimes uses ink or water gun afterwards.

kill the tentacles, this stops it from using ink and water gun, and its only two attacks now is a tentacle attack and waterga, it uses waterga most often, sometimes to heal itself.


Use thunder attacks and this battle should be easy.

1. Ok...My first tip is that wen you hav a chance to se your party members always pick Vivi and Steiner because Vivis magic is more powerfull and teiner can do sword magic.

2. When you are inn Lindblum make ue you go int the synthesis shop and get an Exploder which is Zidanes most powerfull weapon !!

3. This is very usefull when you get to the lifa tree...DO NOT use Vivis fire attack on it even though it seems a good idea but if you do the boss f the lifa tree will use firepin whick mostly k.os you.

4. The final tip is LEVL UP YOUR CHOCOBO. When you levl u yor chocobo in certain ways it changes colour...The higest colour is red and when you have a red chocobo you can travel to dirffrent islands b..

When you get mobile, with the little ship, and your able to get on islands, go and fight Grand Dragons, Make sure you have auto reflect though, and make sure you have high HP and guard against stop, poison slow and blind. Just put it on autoreflect and the protect the rest of your parts cause he'll mostly use Thundaga and if he uses on all four of your party members if you have auto reflect on it will cast it back at him and damage him for a total of 9999. Do that a couple of times and keep your health up there and your levels will be flying by you. I was at level 100 in no time with all of them. Enjoy

When vivi is laying in bed before you talk to him climb up the bunk bed and get the gil then go down and talk to him.

Start off with the magemasher

When you first fight baku with marcus cinna and blank keep trying to steal from him and eventually you'll get the mage masher

Boss + Steal = Good Rewards

You might be thinking "Oh no! Not another boss!"
This game seems to have a boss fight ever few minutes, but some people don't know that the bosses carry weapons that you normally can't purchase yet.
Make sure you steal every Boss blind before sending them packing with a strong spell or slash. You get weapons that you normally can't buy until the next town or so, and that gives you more time to equip them and learn the new abilities that accompany each one. It also saves you a TON of money.

Stupid stone monsters

Those stupid stone monsters are annoying, you don't give too much physical damage and it is murder in Olivert so before you go into Olivert stock up on sofy you don't get exp but you still get AP it is great on thoes stupid monsters that can summon your party to kill you.

...yo ppl!Here is some cheat for changin` clothes...I tried that cheat from Mechanical-E (or something) and it doesn`t work!So it goes like this...When you fight against "BlackWaltz 1." defeat "Sealion" first without using "Dyne" only "Attack",I couldnt do this but I heard it working...yo are suppost get key use it on some thing in Inn in "Dali"!

Excuse me Curbehan, but I think you're in the wrong gamecheats. In FF9 You can only catch one chocobo throughout the game.

You have to make this chocobo change by digging up all the treasures; sometimes a fog comes out of the chest and it will take you to the chocobodreamworld.

There the fat chocobo changes you so you can dig up treasures in other parts of the world. See?
