All Cheats and Tips - Most Popular First

No Random Encounters

In the US version of the game you will not trigger random encounters while you are walkng if you keep opening and closing the menu by pressing Circle. Doing this is useful during the early stages of the game as it prevents you getting unwanted Exp before getting LV Up Bonus Abilities.

Easy Experience Points

Display the world map and then travel to the left-most island. On this island are powerful monsters that can easily level up your characters after battles.

Alternative way to get Missable GFs

You can get any GF during Disc Four at Ultimecia's Castle If you missed any on your way through the game. When you have defeated Sphinxaur select to unlock the Draw ability and you'll then be able to draw the following GFs from the corresponding Bosses.
Unlock Alexander:
Draw from Catoblepas

Unlock Carbuncle:
Draw from Krysta

Unlock Cerberus :
Draw from Gargantua

Unlock Eden:
Draw from Tiamat

Unlock Leviathan:
Draw from Trauma

Unlock Pandemona:
Draw from Red Giant

Unlock Siren:
Draw from Tri-Point

Unlock Free Potions

Get free Potions in 'Timber Town' by having Rinoa in your party then go to the bridge where you saw the guards. Keep returning until a man appears. Talk to him and then talk to him a second time to receive a potion. Leave the screen and return until he appears again and keep repeating this process until you have the desired amount of potions.

To Get The GF Eden:

Once you have the ragnarok, fly down to the bottom left hand corner of the globe and look for a run down building in the middle of the ocean (it doesn't show up on the map) And land on it by pressing X when your shadow is above it.

Squall will say something about A research center. Go in the door, there is a blue light in the centre of the room.

Every time it stops flashing walk forward and stop when it flashes (otherwise you will have to fight loads of battles-Anacondaur-Bombs and Bloud Souls mainly) when you get to the core it will ask a question, I think you can answer either way and you will fight a ruby dragon.

Kill it and it will ask anot..

Area where you can level up very quickly!

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 kil..

Get Squall's ulimate weapon, Lion heart, before the end of the first disk.

As you probably already know you need several key items to get the lion heart. You need 12 pulse ammo, 4 dragon fangs and an adamantine in order to have this made at a junk shop. To get the 12 pulse ammo make sure you have Ifrit's ammo-rf abilitiy and Quazacotl's card mod ability. Now go to Balamb and play cards with a man sitting down at the docks. He will use th Elnoye cards every now and again. Play until you won 20 elnoyle cards from him. Then use the card mod ability to chande them into 2 energy crystals. After that use the ammo-rf ability to change those 2 energy crystals into 20 pulse ammo. The longest part is now done; while going to Galbadia garden you stop along woods which you mu..

T-Rex Easy Battle

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.

How to get the Shiva card.

Here is how you can get the Shiva card for the mini game, Triple Triad. Note that you can only get this on Disc 3.
In order to get the Shiva Card, you first need to find a magazine called, "Girl next door." Or something similar to that. Anyway, you can find the magazine in a stack of magazines in the timber maniacs building. Go into Timber, and go into the building that says Timber Maniacs on the top of it. Right when you enter, you should see several stacks of magazines. Click on on all of the piles from different angles until you find the correct magazine. Now, all you have to do is play the game until Eda tells you to find the White SeeD ship. You can find the ship somehwere on the continent that looks like some bit into it. Go on the ship, and you should be able to talk to..

Tonberry / Odin Walkthrough

Odin Walkthrough
Diffuculty: Easy
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 ou..

After you get off the train at East Academy Station, you will have to pass through a forest to get to Galbadia Garden.

Before you enter the forest, equip Quisties and Selphie with a few GFs. If you don't, then Kiros and Ward won't be much help during the next part.

As you go, there will be two types of soldiers that you fight, humans and cyborgs.

The cyborgs are way stronger and have more HP, but you can easily defeat them by drawing Thundaga from them and using it on them.

Also, make sure that you find the two old keys, set the trap for the soldiers, push the boulder in the wall, and then find the detonator and push the red switch, then the blue switch.

Then when you..

Hey, I have found the easiest way to defeat the 19 tonberrys to get the Tonberry King, in two plays in fact! First, get Diablos to where he takes off 9999 hit points every time he hits.

(its fairly easy) then you need Cactaur's Kamikaze.

Have one of your players use Kamikaze, ( the player I used had only around 4500 hit points) which will take off 22,880 hit points off the tonberry, then use diablos on it and BOOM! One less tonberry!

Oh, and you can't use Diablos on the Tonberry King, but if you use the Kamikaze and then just keep using Aura on Squall, with his lionheart, he dies pretty quickly!

another way to get eden is to draw it from tiamat in Ultimecias castle,instead of fighting ultima weapon.

also a good way to get strong is to draw 100 full lifes from an enemy and junction it to ur hp you well have 9999 hp

To get Pupu card (level 5) you must encounter all 4 spaceships ( you must have Diablos ability Enc None to see them) go to the hole where Balamb Garden used to be, and you will encounter another spaceship.

Fight and defeat the spaceship. then you will encounter a Pupu.

You must feed it five Elixers and you will be rewarded by It's card.

It may only be Lvl 5, but it is certainly the hardest to get.

'ello!A few things to make life a little better...


A few things to make life a little better...

First, if you missed getting any gf's in the game, you can still draw them from the bosses at ultimecia's castle.

(if you can't find eden, try swinging across the pendulum in the clock tower!) NOTE: this doesn't work with tonberry, cactuar, bahamut, doomtrain, and diablos since you get them differently.

Second, if you missed joker in the cc club quest, you can still challenge him when on the ragnarok after the fight with adel.

Third, outside of ultimecia's castle (along the big chain) are three gateways.

If you jump across to them, they take ya back to ..

If you want all your GFs to learn abilities a lot quicker, head to cactuar island.

This can be found off the south-east coast of the esthar continent.

If you equip all of your GFs to your main party, they will learn abilities a lot quicker with every battle you get in, because the only enemies are cactuars.

Cactuars are very weak enemies and 20AP is given for each cactuar killed.

If your characters are at a high enough level, you can try and challenge the Jumbo Cactuar, just look for the green lump that pops up out of the ground on the island.

This has got quite a lot of HP and some fairly strong attacks, but i killed it easily with ..

When trying to get Bahamut. Use Diablos on the Ruby dragons. This should help you defeat them quite easily as it can take off up to 7000HP.

Although Diablos will not effect Bahamut So if You Have use a Hero When he uses His big move you then should then be able to defeat him easier.

When facing any enemy that is not a boss you can..

When facing any enemy that is not a boss you can kill it in one go.

Simply cast zombie or GF doomtrain, then cast life or use a phoenix down and they will instantly die

"Then she hugs Irvine and Selpie will say "Yeah we will have a good time."And she hugs Irvine and they leave.Then Squall Zell and Quistis complains. When Irvine Rinoa and Selpie leaves,Quistis hugs Squall and says lets go.

How to kill monsters with 1 hit

First, you have to equip a GF that has ST/Attack ability then in the attack part you put in 100 Deaths (you can get them from draw it from a monster.
I forgot what monster I draw it from put it's possible) so now when you attack you kill the monster with 1 hit.
It dosn't work on some monster but I know it works on T-Rex's so you can train on them.
Thats how I got all my characters up to 100.

Easy draws!!!

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*)

Get Sqaull's Lionheart Gun Blade on the first Disc!

This here takes a lot of time and work.
The needed items are and in order to obtain:
4x Dragon Fangs
12x Pulsa Ammo
1x Adamantine
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 nee..
