You'll fight in 3 groups. You have to defeat Kefka before his troops
reach Banon. Your best bet is probably to take out all the soldiers

of four characters (with 2 and 1 in the other ones) and go
straight for Kefka.

Celes looks like the
opera singer Maria, so she takes her place in
order to get to Setzer.

beginning of the singing part again.
Take Locke and read the letter in the dressing
room. Now return to
the balcony and talk to Impressario. Once Ultros

METHOD 2: This way is the longest but you can get almost all of Mog's
dances doing it this way. Land your airship at the entrance
to the Returner's hideout and jump on the raft on the Lete
River. This time the raft will go the way Sabin went the
first time and you'll end up near Gau's father's house.
From here you have to go thru Sabin's scenerio and hop on
the boat To South Figaro in Nikeah. Once in South Figaro
it's kinda cool: the captain of the ship smuggles you into
town in a treasure chest :) Now you have to go all the way
thru Mt. Kolts again and you'll finally be to the point
where you can retrieve the airship.
METHOD 3: This was is short and fast.
Land the airship at Nikeah.
Take a Chocobo from here and go to Baren Falls. Jump in
and then go to the Serpent's Trench which will take you
back to Nikeah where the airship is waiting.
Once you have Mog's water rondo
go to the Imperial Base next to the
bridge to the east of Vector. The
Auction House in Jidoor is now open
making it possible to get Golem and Zoneseek
now [see THE AUCTION HOUSE
for more info].
If you enter without Terra you'll be kicked
out. So if you don't have
Terra return to the airship and change party
members. In the building
is a treasure room with a locked door.
Make your way thru to the
other side of the base and exit. Head east and
you'll enter the Cave

ground in the area that is below the stairway, there are 4 hidden
treasures: 1 to the left of the stairs, 1 a couple steps above the
right, 1 a couple steps to the left of the slope that
leads up to the chest,
and 1 a few steps above the chests. This is
the treasure that the Ninja
refers to when you defeat him. Go thru the
hole after you get the chest and
hidden stuff. Step on both switches
you can see. Go down and then left.
Step on that switch and enter the
door that appears. After getting the
treasure leave the room and go
right to the far bridge and then up. Pull
the switch, cross the
bridge, and pull another switch. Go up and left
across the brides.
Flick the switch inside the chest and return back to your
the chest up the stairs then go down and exit the room.
Go up the
stairs in the next room and your at the Sealed Gate. Now you
fight Kefka again (kinda). To get back to the airship all you
to do is go down and out, and then go back thru the Imperial Base.
On the airship the Espers attack and you lose control of the ship,
just south of Maranda. From here go northeast to Vector.

strength' if you talk
to them. Return to the center seat when you're ready
the meal. Terra and Locke decide to head to Albrook.
Before you go
remember to go back for all the treasure you saw while talking

Notice the Inn costs a lot
(1500 GP !!), after you talk to Strago, it'll only
cost 1 GP (cool

In the middle of the night Strago will come in and wake you up. His

defeat him even though she
had nothing to do with it :) When you get t
the room with the save
spot step onto one of the squares on the floor.
You'll fall down a level.
The rightmost hole leads to a chest, the
top left hole leads to another two
chests, and the bottom left hole
leads to the Espers.
(27)Back in Thamasa
BOSS: Kefka (you fight against him with General Leo)
This is almost like a fake ending: the Espers and the humans have
agreement and everyone is happy.... then Kefka shows up.
You now have control
of General Leo. If you try to leave town you'll
be attacked by the invincible
Guardian. Go talk to Kefka, you'll have
to fight him. It doesn't matter
how you fight him, you're going to
win (or so you think). You now have
control of the airship again.
If you re-enter Thamasa you'll find Strago's friend
Gungho and you'll

just kinda jump off :),

Go up and you'll
find Kefka and Gestahl. Celes comes and join you.

you'll find a man in bed who'll give you Cursed Shld.
shield to someone. It may be a pain for a while, but in 255
it'll all be worth it. (Being equipped for 255 fights removes
curse and changes the shield into the Paladin Shld which teaches the
Ultima spell [a Ribbon must be equipped to the person using the shield
to uncurse it. It would make sense to have it equipped any
way because it counteracts
all the bad effects of the Cursed Shld --
except Condemned, but, hey, you can't
have everything :) ].
Go to the Weapon Shop and have Locke get you in.
back room you'll find and old man. Talk to him. He'll give
choice of either getting the Esper Ragnarok or making it into a sword.
Tough choice: the sword is VERY powerful (and can be bet in the
Colosseum for an even more powerful sword) but the Esper teaches you th
most powerful spell in the game - Ultima. Once you've decided (I'd go
for the Esper) enter the mines thru the secret passage Locke showed you
or thru the entrance behind Arvis' house, and then go to the Moogle Cav
where you'll find Mog waiting to join you. Once he's out of the way,
the wall behind him for the Moogle Charm [also in this cave
is a chest that
may contain a Ribbon if you didn't get the Rune Sword
that was in it in the
World of Balance]. If you explore the cave
some more you'll find two other
chests (the 1st two chests that Terra
found in the beginning of the game).
If you haven't gotten them
yet, they'll contain a Pod Bracelet and an Elixir.Return
to the airship
and add Mog to your party. Now go back into Narshe and
go north to the
mines where you first saw Umaro (straight back from the entrance

in a new area of the mines. Wander around and you'll
be able to find 3
chests. The monster-in-a-box sometimes leaves
Minerva armor. When you
come to a switch, pass it up, cross the bridge
and pull that switch. When
you fall down search the skull carving and
you'll get the Esper Terrato.
Then Umaro will come down and attack
you. When you defeat him and if Mog
is in your party, he'll join you.
If you follow him out you'll end up just below the spot where you
first saw Umaro. Enter the mines to your left. Follow that path and
you're on your way out. Once you're out of Narshe go to Triangle
Wander around until you get attacked. The only
monster on the island
is the ZoneEater. If you kill it it's worth 1000
xp, but in order
to continue you must have all four of your characters get engulfed,
so just sit there. Once you get engulfed you'll be in a cave.

past the save spot you'll
come to a room with a moving wall. If you get
caught by the wall
you die. To get past it, stop behind the first chest

scenes that deal with Cyan's

side of the room.

down will lead to a
prison. In the far left cell

down through another door. Search the wall below and to the
right of you to find a Ribbon. Now go up and battle
Poltrgeist. Defeating it will get you the AuraLance. Go
north and drop down the hole. Step on the switch and it's time
for the final multi-battle showdown.
Put your characters in the order you want
them to fight. The first
4 in your list will fight 1st. If anyone
of those 4 are dead at the

die or you beat the game.

you happen to run into it, just beat the hell out of it
best attacks. Use life spells and Fenix Down to bring
dead companions if you feel like it. It'll run from you
quickly but it can't regenerate itself between fights, so
you fight it it'll have the same amount of hps as it
did when it
ran. Eventually you'll kill it. Killing it will
you the Esper Bahamut.
Red Dragon HP: 30000
MP: 1780 Weakness: ice, water
Use Ice spells if you have them. Have Terra
attack, Edgar use
Drill or Chainsaw, Sabin attack, Celes attack
or Runic, Cyan
use SwdTech 1 or 4, Gau ????, Setzer attack or Slot/GP
Strago use the Aqua Rake lore, and Relm attack.
Ice Dragon HP: 24400 MP: 9000
Use fire spells or if you don't have them use your best attacks.
Tritoch HP: 30000 MP: 50000
Use fire spells or best attacks to thaw it out.
Umaro HP: 17200 MP:
6990 Weakness: fire, poison
Use fire spells or best attacks. Don't use
Tritoch, Shiva, or
Ice spells because it'll heal him.
White Dragon HP: 18500 MP: 1200 Weakness:
Use Ultima and Flare if you have them. Have Gogo Mimic or cast
spells, and everyone else use their most powerful spells and Espers.
HP: 50000 MP: 50000 Weakness: varies
METHOD 1: Don't bother using elemental spells (fire,ice,bolt,etc)
the MagiMaster constantly changes what spells heal
and hurt him. Using Beserk on him stops him from doing this
Instead use spells like Ultima and Flare, plus Espers like
Bahamut and Maduin. Also make ABSOLUTELY SURE AT LEAST ONE
CHARACTER HAS LIFE 3 ON THEM because when MagiMaster dies
he casts Ultima on your party and unless you have a helluva
lot of hps, your toast.
METHOD 2: Cast Beserk on him and use the
Phantom Esper on your party.
Now continually cast Rasp on him (or Osmose if your MPS
get really low). When his 50000 mps are gone he'll try
to cast Ultima but since he has no mps he'll fail and die.
NOTE: It takes a long time to beat him this way but once
you cast Bserk on him and used Phantom on you, he
can't hurt you at all.
METHOD 3: Equip everyone with Wall Rings
and let MagiMaster
kill himself. You still need Life3 or a lot of HPS
with this method.
METHOD 4: Cast Bserk on him, then use the Phantom
your party as in METHOD 2. Now keep scanning him
as you attack. When his HPS reach a few thousand
use the Palidor Esper. Hopefully, the first character
down will kil him. He'll cast Ultima which'll kill
the one character, but the ones in the air will live.
The 3 Stooges Left/ Larry HP: 10000
MP: 2000 Weakness: fire
Top/ Curley HP: 15000 MP: 2000 Weakness: ice, water
Right/ Moe HP: 12000 MP: 2000 Weakness: none
VANISH/DOOM: yes (all three of them)
Use Ultima and Bahamut
if you have them. If not just use your
and spells, taking note what spells heal which
WrexSoul HP: 23066 MP: 5066
For a quick battle use X-Zone (it'll suck in the SoulSavers and
you'll win the fight). If you don't have X-Zone then don't worry
about the SoulSavers. You first have to attack one of your
characters until they die. This will cause WrexSoul to appear in a
form you can kill. Once he has appeared bring your dead character
back to life and then use Ultima, Bahamut, and Ice spells, or your
best attacks. If he disappears, repeat the process only kill a
different character this time.
Master Pug HP: 22000
MP: 1200 Weakness: varies
Use Ultima, Flare, and Bahamut. Have
Edgar use Drill or Chainsaw,
Sabin use Bum Rush, Celes use
Runic, Cyan use SwdTech 7, Gau
????, Setzer attack or Slot/GP
Rain, and everyone else attack.
Blue Dragon HP: 26900
MP: 3800 Weakness: lightning
Use your best spells (Ultima, Meteor, Flare,
etc), your best
Espers (Bahamut, etc.), and attacks (Sabin's
Bum Rush, Edgar's
Drill, etc.). Don't cast Doom (without
Vanish first, break,
or Haste/Slow spells because it'll use
Rippler to make
the spells affect you instead.
KatanaSoul HP: 37620 MP: 7400
Use Ultima for major damage. Otherwise use your
(Espers, spells, regular, and special).
Hidon HP: 25000 MP:
12500 Weakness: fire,pearl,earth
VANISH/DOOM: yes (X-Zone only)
The easiest way to kill Hidon
is to bring it to life (i.e. use
a life spell, revivify, etc.).
If you don't want to do that
then use Pearl on Hidon if you
have it. Don't worry about the
use Ultima, Meteor, Flare, Bahamut, Terrato, etc.
Dirt Drgn HP: 28500
MP: 16500 Weakness: wind, water
If you have some sort of Gaia equipment on
a lot of the dragon's
spells will heal you. Ultima works
quite will. Use it if you
have it, if not use your other
more powerful attacks. Casting
Float on your party will
also be a big help.
HP: 55000 MP: 19000 Weakness: none
Ultima works quite well. Use it along
with the best attacks
of the members of your party.
Another way to do it is to try
depleting its MPS by using
spells like rasp (it'll die when its
MPS are drained completely).
Gold Dragon HP: 32400 MP: 4000 Weakness:
Don't use lightning based spells (Bolt, Ramuh, etc.). DO use
Ultima, Bahamut, Flare, Meteor, etc. Using your best attacks
should be safe as long as they don't involve lightning.
Inferno & Company Rough
HP: 8000 MP: 770 Weakness: ice
Inferno HP: 30800 MP: 9700 Weakness: lightning
Striker HP: 11000 MP: 2600 Weakness: fire
Striker is the claw on the right and Rough
is the left one.
Don't worry about the claws, concentrate
on Inferno. If you
use Ultima, Meteor, Bahamut, or some
other spell/Esper that
attacks all enemies then you don't
have to worry about anything.
Use your best attacks.
Skull Drgn HP: 32800 MP: 1999 Weakness:
Use fire spells and pearl as the basis of your attack. Ultima,
Flare, Bahamut, etc. work good too. Cure 3 also works good.
HP: 63000 MP: 4800 Weakness: pearl
Use Ultima for major damage. Also use
your other major attacks.
Once he uses his force field don't
use spells that'll bounce
off a wall (elementals, flare, etc.).
Goddess HP: 44000 MP: 19000
Use your more powerful spells (Ultima, Meteor, etc.) and
(Sabin's Bum Rush, etc.)
again HP: 60000 MP: 5200 Weakness: lightning, water
Use lightning spells along with your best
attacks (spells or
otherwise). If you have Sabin have
him do the Bum Rush blitz
for some good damage.
Poltrgeist HP: 58000 MP: 18900 Weakness:
Again, use your best attacks (Ultima, Flare, Bum Rush, etc).
Ice 3 seems to work pretty good, too.
Final Fight Lvl 1 (approximate values for hps)
Head HP: 30000 MP: ???? Weakness: ????
Left Hand HP: 27000 MP: ???? Weakness: ????
Right Hand HP: 32000 MP: ???? Weakness: ????
Here you have to destroy the creatures head
and both hands. Use
your best attacks and it'll go down
in no time. The best way to
do it is have 3 characters
attack (Ultima works good) and the 4th
Final Fight Lvl 2 (approximate values for hps)
Left HP: 40000 MP: ???? Weakness: ????
Middle HP: 24000 MP: ???? Weakness: ????
TopRight HP: 27000 MP: ???? Weakness: ????
BotRight HP: 30000 MP: ???? Weakness: ????
There are 4 things to attack here. The
same strategy as above
Fight Lvl 3 (approximate values for hps)
Left HP: 10000 MP: ???? Weakness: ????
Right HP: 40000 MP: ???? Weakness: ????
Only two things to attack here. If you're
using attacks that
only hit a single target, concentrate them
on the angel head
(the one on the left) because it'll heal
both targets. When you
get the right target down low
it'll get mad and start using major
damage attacks like Merton.
Have your Cure spells ready.
Kefka: The End HP: 62000 (approx.) MP: ????
Be ready to cure when he uses Fallen One (which reduces
characters to 1 hp). Even regular/special attacks
good on him (that's all I used and the fight went
Make this fight go even quicker by using the
Another tactic that makes the fight go quicker
is to equip everyone
with Flame Shlds and use Merton.

Once you have the airship you can go anywhere on the map. You can land
anywhere except for mountains,
forests, and deserts. Inside the airship
you can change you party members by talking to any of the characters
ship. Also on the ship you will find three non-playable characters: one
restore your hps and mps, one will sell you stuff (Item shop), and the
third one will allow you to unequip
some or all of your characters. The
restorer and the Item shop aren't on the second airship that you
get in the
World of Ruin.

In the auction house in Jidoor you have the ability to bid on items.
If you go to the Auction House in the World of Balance you can bid on the
Cherub Down which costs 10000 GP
Talking Chocobo which you can't win
Golem which'll cost 20000 GP
Cure Ring costs 20000 GP
ZoneSeek for 10000 GP.
In the World of Ruin the items you can bid on are:
1/1200 of an airship (which you can't win)
the Hero Ring which will cost 50000
Golem for 20000 GP
Cape for 10000 GP
an Imp Robot (which you can't win)
ZoneSeek which will cost you 10000 GP.
The order the items appear seems to be random. If you stay at the Inn
I think the
Auction House will auction off things you can actually buy.

Any time you have Shadow in your party (in either the World of Balance or
the World of Ruin) you can visit
an Inn and possibly
learn more about Shadow's past. To do so all you have to do is sleep at
an Inn (in any town) or any other place you can sleep (like the beds in
Doma Castle) and the hope you get
a dream sequence. The odds of getting
a dream sequence are like 1:4 for the first four sequences.
dream will be seen when you find Shadow in the World of Ruin.
H I D D E N C H O C O B O S T A B L E S
Hidden in forests around the world you may find a Chocobo Stable.
In the World of Balance these hidden stables are located:
-Forest east of Tzen
-Forest southeast of Maranda
-Forest west of original location of Figaro Castle
-Forest north of Kohlingen
the World of Ruin these hidden stables are located:
-Forest south of Mobliz
-Forest south of Colosseum
-Forest south of Phoenix Cave

Relm's Sketch bug
- this bug is now pretty famous (infamous?). It involves
Relm (or Gogo)
sketching a monster and then the bug occurs. It
seems to happen most when
sketching large enemies, unusual enemies,
or invisible enemies (Gau, Intangir,
etc.), but can occur when
sketching normal monsters.
The bug may do a number of different things, it may:
1. Reset EVERYTHING (i.e. three empty save slots)
2. Permanently mess up saved games
3. Give your party tons (as many as 255 [it'll say 0]) of
different items. Anything from Dirks to Economizers and
4. Just freeze up
(meaning you'll have to reset)
5. Erase items from your inventory.
It may have been fixed in later versions
of the game.
About the only way to make sure you don't encounter this bug is
to simply not sketch.
Duncan bug - If you go to Duncan's house in the World of Ruin before
getting Bum Rush and without Sabin, you'll find Duncan practicing
in the house.
Press 'X' to go to the subscreen then 'B' to return.
Each time you do this Duncan
will restart his jump. By doing this
over and over you can make Duncan
jump through the wall and into
the black space around the room.
Easy Level Ups
Note: you must have a turbo controller to do this trick
When you make it to the Lete River, set your window commands to "Short" and switch Banon's "Health" and "Attack" then
switch the commands back to "Window" so you can have Banon's Health as the default command. When you get to a point where
you have a choice of going "Straight" or Left set your controller to turbo and tape down the A button. Leave your game on
overnight and you will likely be around level 50-60.

Instantly kill enemies
need the Vanish spell and the Doom spell. (X-Zone could also work) Cast Vanish on the enemy and then cast Doom on the vanished
target. This also works on about 95% of bosses!
