                                  Introduction                                 
===============================================================================

This guide will tell you how to beat those unbeatable Weapons and tell you
where to get the stuff. Thank you for reading, and hope this helps!

===============================================================================
                             What you'll Need                             
===============================================================================

To beat Ruby Weapon you'll need a Magic Plus(Level 4 or higher), Hades
(Mastered), 4 or 5 HP Pluses(Level 2 or higher), 2 MP Pluses(Level 2 or
higher), Phoenix, 3 Mime materia, Knight Of the Round(Mastered), Enemy Skill
materia with Big Guard, W-Summon, Final Attack, HP Absorb, Quadra Magic,
Bahamut Zero(for Emerald Weapon), and Underwater materia(for Emerald weapon).

For Equipment I recommend Mystile Armor or Aegis Armor, Ribbon,

Ultima Weapon or Enhance Sword, two Sprint Shoes, two Turbo Ethers and two
Elixirs.

Before the battle kill off the other two party members in your party and leave
Cloud alive. Equip on him Mystile Armor/Aegis Armor, and a Ribbon. Give him an
Enemy Skill materia with Big Guard, HP Absorb linked to Knights of the Round,
Mime, W-Summon, Magic Plus, Hades linked with Quadra Magic, Final Attack Linked
to Phoenix, and the rest of the slots with HP and MP pluses.

Since you killed off two of your characters before the battle he wont whirlwind
any of your characters away. Start off by casting Hades Twice (Five times if
Quadra Magic is level 3 or higher). This will paralyze him and he wont
counterattack you with Ultima if you cast Knights of the Round, and it may
destroy his tentacles altogether. Next, make sure your MP is above 250, if not,
use a Turbo Ether or Elixir. Now, cast Knights of the Round with W-Summon twice
on the tentacles and once on Ruby Weapon himself, and keep miming it. If you do
this, you'll probably destroy his tentacles, and since you've got Knights of
the Round linked to HP Absorb, you'll be fully healed in the process. Keep
using mime to cast Knights of the Round twice on the tentacles, and once on
Ruby Weapon each turn. Just keep miming and you'll win soon enough!

You get the Desert Rose from beatng Ruby Weapon, trade it to Kalm Traveler for
a Gold Chocobo.

Before the Battle, equip Cloud with Final Attack linked to Phoenix, Mimic,
Sprint Shoes, Magic Plus (to get Magic power to 225), MP Plus (Enough to boost
your MP to 550), and the rest of the slots with HP Plus.

Equip any character with high Magic power with Quadra Magic linked to
Bahamut ZERO, HP Absorb linked to KOR, W-Summon, Sprint 
Shoes, MP Plus (enough to get the MP to at least 800), and 
the empty slots with Magic Pluses.

Any other character with the Underwater materia to eliminate the timer, and a
Mime.

Start off by casting Bahumut ZERO two times and Knights of the Round once, with
W-Summon. Next, have Cloud and the other character Mime it, again and again. If
the other characters get killed, dont worry about, cuase sooner or later
Emerald Weapon will use Aire Tire Storm, and you'll die. Since you have phoenix
Equipped with Final Attack, once you die your entire party will be revived and
fully healed. Now have the second character cast Knights of the Round twice and
keep miming it, and Emerald Weapon will die in a few turns.

Once you beat Emerald Weapon, you get the Earth harp. Take the Earth Harp to
the Kalm Traveler, and you'll get Master Summon, Master Magic, and Master
Command, each with every single Command, Spell, and Summon in one materia slot!
