After completing the Bronze Handicap Match and getting
all the silver trophies, not including the bronze handicap match,

one. Once you finish the last battle, you will get the Athena
body part (illegal).
To get "Can Robo" Can Bomb, Can Pods, Can
Boots, and Can Gun, win the Tournament in your house. You can
now enter Lucy's room. In there you will see lots of people talking
about what they did for the game (similar to "talking"
credits). Go through the second door and you will see more people.
In the second room there is a robot (not a Custom Robo). Talk
to him after he is done talking. The game will save. Go to the
nearest parts generator and get ready to laugh at what you just

trophy, then talk to Oboro.
In Grand Battle (Episode 2), after winning every tournament in
the city you will have access to the Outer World. When there,
go to the Z Museum and defeat everyone to be able to go to the
Z Boss Room. Once there, get a gold trophy to get the Ray Legend.
When you get to the Z boss room, you will fight (in order), Shiner,
Eliza, Izabella, Oboro, then your host, Sensei. Sensei will then
introduce your sixth opponent (the special guest), who is a simulation
of Hero's father, the first leader and founder of the Z syndicate.
He will say that his Robo is obsolete, and the Robo he is using
is actually the Ray Legend Robo. It has a much stronger attack
and much weaker defense than Ray 01, and will be easy to defeat
if you can avoid him and knock him down. Try using all of Rahu
1 but replace his gun with the vertical gun.
To obtain Ray Legand (the Ray from the original Japanese version
of Custom Robo for the Nintendo 64), win all five Z tournaments
in Grand Battle mode.
Win all the cups in the Amusement Park tournaments

and Alex seliverstov.

talk to Oboro, and select Eliza's Mansion. Go in between the glass
and the wall, go all the way to the left, then up, then right.
You will be in the glass case. Press A to find Rahu 1's
parts and the Rahu 1 chip.
Do the Bronze handicap match. When Lucy appears to fight, talk
to her until you get Rahu 2's parts.

Go to the Lab Single battle and go to the lower-right corner of
the room. Face right, and press A.
When you first enter Bogey's, look behind the counter
facing the wall.
To find the X Laser (illegal part), in a Grand Battle mode, go
to Bogey's Café. Walk behind the counter and select the
shelf. You will now have an illegal part.
Hint: Juggle your opponent:
Every Robo has a dash attack that they can perform
with . Some Robos have a straight-forward dash. If you are using
one of those Robos, keep pressing X and you will juggle
your opponent and do a good amount of damage. This is very useful
if you have low health.
Hint: Illegal parts:
To get illegal parts, complete the first seventeen
tournaments in the Grand Battle section of story mode. In the
Other World, when you complete the first three Z tournaments,
you will receive no parts. However, all the battles in Z headquarters
after those will reward you with illegal parts, such as the Wyrm,
Wolf Spider, Orca, Cheetah, Swallow, Raven, and Eclipse. Note:The
first parts you will receive are legs, but you will soon get the
Wyrm, which is the advanced version of the Dragon (very powerful).
Hint: Earning A New Journey parts:
If you want to get the parts for A New Journey easily,
keep doing versus matches. For every three matches you will get
a part. Note: This is easier if no one is playing as player two
and if his health is 200.
Hint: Defeating large enemies:
To defeat enemies such as the Metal Bear, Tank Head,
etc., use the Peregrine with Formula Legs and either the Shotgun
or the Knuckle. You must get close to your enemies to use these
weapons, but the Peregrine is incredibly fast, and the Knuckle
and The Shotgun are two of the game's most powerful guns.
Hint: Defeating Chief:
Use Criminal, Gattling Gun, Standard Pod, Bomb, and
Formula Legs. Shoot him with the gun until you are at either ends
of the stage. As long as you keep firing from there, he will keep
jumping and be down before he gets too close and fires on you.
Hint: Defeating Earnest I:
Use a Striker Vanisher model with a good Downing Gun
and keep dodging the sniper shots. Use far range as timing to
dodge the gunfire.
Hint: Defeating Harry:
Choose either the V-Laser or any powerful gun and any
bomb/pod remaining. Equip Formula Legs and run into him. Charge
him, then fire away with the gun.
Hint: Defeating most most Lightning Sky
Use the Phoenix Gun and keep firing from the ground.
keep your distance from them, and keep pods and bombs around him.
Hint: Defeating Linda:
In the Gold Cup finals, to defeat Linda use a Raider
type model, Flame Gun, Can Bomb, Can Pod and Formula Legs. Do
not forget to go into Lucy's room after winning the House Tournament
with a "Gold" rank and talk to the training robot to
get these important wastable parts.
Hint: Defeating Marcia:
Use Drill, Ray 01 and Formula Legs. Stay close to Marcia,
but not too close or her charge does damage. Try circling her
while firing at close range. Most, if not all, of her shoots should
Hint: Defeating Rahu III:
To defeat Rahu III, the final Boss of A New Journey,
customize your Robo's legs, gun, and body as follows. For the
body, choose something that is heavily resistant. Suggestions
include any of the Funky Big Head and Metal Animal Series. For
the gun, select something with homing capabilities, range, and
perhaps power. The Dragon gun is a good idea. For the legs, choose
one that allow good jumping. In the battle, try to hide behind
one of the giant circles. Keep a low profile and let your partners
do a lot of the work. As often as possible, jump in the air and
fire your gun. When Rahu III attacks you, walk away towards the
next nearest circle by jumping backwards, firing your gun, pod,
and bombs, until your partners come to rescue. When Rahu III has
killed your partners, keep firing. When he gets close, hit him
with X. When he is in the air or backwards, hit him with
your gun. He rarely gets a rebirth, and you will have lots of
time. However after the shot, walk backwards firing the gun, pod,
and bomb until you reach the next circle; then repeat.
The following trick might be cowardly, but it works sometimes.
Let your partners damage him to conserve your life. Because there
is nowhere to hide, just run even though some of his attacks are
difficult to dodge. For example, let Harry die or do a lot of
damage, then come in for the kill. One part you might want is
the dragon, as it homes in on your opponent.
Hint: Defeating Roy:
To defeat Roy, use Hornet, Freeze Bomb, Land Freeze,
Metal Ox and Formula Legs. Keep both Freeze Pods near you and
fire the gun if Roy is too far. If things get desperate, hit him
with the bomb. Then if Roy is close and is frozen, charge him
to send him flying far with a lot of damage. However, keep your
distance as his Magnum still hurts and he will hit you when you
Hint: Defeating Sergi:
In the Gold tournament. Sergi is one of the toughest
opponents. The Dragon Gun, Vertical Gun and Needle Gun work well.
If you use the Needle Gun, just keep firing at him. Get in front
of him at all times.
Hint: Defeating your father:
To defeat your father in Grand Battle mode, choose
a high defensive Robo (for example, Ray 01) , Needle, favorite
bombs and pod, and Formula Legs. Keep shooting him with Needle
and he may hit you a few times for an auto down. However, get
up fast. You should be able to get 25,000 points if you do not
use illegal parts and you get good at Rebirth and shooting the
Hint: Easy wins:
An effective strategy against most Robos (especially
slow moving ones) is to use a Lightning Sky model (for example,
Defender, Seeker, and Breaker) with something long range and powerful
(such as the Needle, Sniper, or Wyrm). Once you bring them down
from flying around, close in and shoot the HP out of your opponent.
Repeat this until they are defeated.
Use these parts for your Robo. A good offensive and defensive
body is the Rahu3. A good gun to get your opponent up close (to
use your spinning attack) is Claw. A recommended pod would be
Penumbra3. A good choice of legs would be Formula. Use any choice
for bombs, however with Geo Trap when your opponent is down you
can give him a powerful blast from offensive bombs.
Select any fast model Robo and your favorite bombs and pods, but
cgiise the stun gun. It has a very short range but it is rapid
and does very high damage. Down your opponent, then move in close
and shock them. When they jump away to put some distance between
you, jump after them. Stay on their tail with another shocking.
It is possible to get a "Perfect" easily for any match.
Hint: Single use tournaments:
To get gold in a single use tournament, do not use
Illegal parts as they cut your points in half. Use the following
combination, or something of the sort. In the first two to three
battles use Metal Ape, Metal Bear, Metal Ox, with these guns:
Afterburner (stand back and fire for an easy perfect), Blade (stand
back, fire your opponent into a wall, and keep firing for an easy
perfect), Halo (stand on ground and fire repeatedly for an perfect).
Note: These guns do not too well in Ice Holloseums, In the case
of Ice Holloseums, use a Javelin or Halberd type. In battles four
through six, use the Peregrine and either Shotgun or Knuckle.
Note: If there are more battles than six, use Peregrine and Knuckle,
Swift and Shotgun, And Shrike and Flame. For the last battle,
use your preferred Robo (for example, Ray 01) and your favorite
weapon (probably the Dragon).
Hint: Hub Park tournament:
To win the Hub park tournament in The Grand Battle
easily, equip the following parts: Javelien, Sniper Gun, Geotrap
Bomb, any Feint Pod, and the Formula Legs. Your opponents all
have Gattling Guns. The Sniper has the fastest firing power and
can knock a Robo down in one hit. Jump to the highest point in
the level. When your opponent starts firing, quickly shoot to
knock him down and stop the fire. This is an easy trick to get
a perfect every time. If you ever cannot shoot your opponent,
Air Dash and disappear or outrun the bullets with the Formula
Hint: 3-way Gun:
To do the most damage with the 3-way Gu,n either get
very close or far from your opponent.
If you use the V-Laser, just run up to the enemy and
blast him as you would with the shotgun. It will have the same
effect as the shotgun, but will do more damage. This is a good
gun because you can also adjust the range, even if it does less
Hint: Holosseum data:
Go to the bottom-left hand corner of the Holosseum.
You should find data on the Holosseum.
Hint: Completing Weapon Glossary:
After you complete "A New Journey" in story
mode, "Weapon Glossary" will be available. To put a
weapon in Weapon Glossary mode, you must win at least one match
in arcade mode. The weapons used will be available in Weapon Glossary.
Any easy way to complete Weapon Glossary is to fight in the first
match, win it, quit arcade mode, then start again using different
Hint: Destroy world:
When Harry asks you if you are going to the Outer World,
keep saying "Not Going". Soon they will leave you and
the screen will turn black explaining the tragedy. Although Harry
is dead he will still talk to you, tell you to make the right
choice, and send you back to that screen.
Hint: Lose watch:
When Mira asks about your watch at the dinner say "Do
you like it?". Harry will say that she collects them. Keep
insisting she could have the watch When you defeat Oboro, they
will ask for the watch. A scene will show the disappointment of
you losing your father's watch. They will give you keys to their
cabinet, and you will have to run home get it and return to continue
Hint: Robo combinations:
The following are useful Robo combinations.
Glaive: Glider gun, Standard K bomb, Seeker F pod, Booster legs.
Keep firing all your weapons repeatedly to keep your opponent
Glaive: Sword Storm gun, Burrow D/P bomb, Seeker F/G pod, Stabilizer
Milky Way: Homing Star gun, Wave bomb, Ground/Sky freeze pod,
Milky Way: Raptor gun, Acrobat bomb, Sky Freeze pod, High Jump
legs. Use Acrobat bomb to launch yourself in the air and repeatedly
Perigrine: Magnum gun, Tomahawk G bomb, Beast F pod, Ground legs.
Ruhiel: Raptor gun, Acrobat bomb, Wolf Spider pod, Raven legs.
(Use the Acrobat bomb to launch yourself in the air and then tap
A and fly around the Holosseum, tapping B repeatedly,
creating a big circle of raptor gun ammunition.
Ruhiel: Raptor gun, Wyvern bomb, Wolf Spider pod, Raven legs.
Seal Head: Right/Left Arc gun, Right/Left Flank H bomb, Twin Flank
G pod, Long Thrust legs.
Seeker: Hornet gun, Dual bomb, Jumping B pod, Booster legs.
Shrike: Shotgun, Right Flank H bomb, Caboose X pod, Feather legs.
Ray 01: 3-way, Geotrap or Right/Left Flank H, Diving, High Jump.
Halbird: Shotgun, Geotrap, Speed Pod, Float F, or Diving and Formula.
Use the following Illegal Parts combination: Ray Warrior Body,
Wyrm Gun, Wyvern Bomb, Wolf Spider Pod, and Ultimate Legs. Always
Airdash if you are going to attempt to attack in the air so that
you can dodge upcoming attacks. If you need to make them lose
a lot of HP in one shot, use the Wyrm on the ground close to them
so the four shots from it take off 200 to 350 HP in one volley.
Only Airdash at the peak of your jump height for best results.
Use pods close to your opponent in the air and bombs at far distance
to blast them up and away. The Ultimate Legs will make up for
all speed and jump distance flaws.
Use the following Illegal Parts combination: Ruhiel Body, Raptor
Gun, Grand Cross, Orca, Ultimate Legs. When flying, press B
rapidly and the multi-colored eagle shots will come and set place.
You can probably set eight to ten eagles (two per shot) if done
fast and correctly. If you jumped high before flying, you can
do twelve of them. Use Orca in air while pressing B to
make the homing shots easy and accurate. Use Grand Cross and Raptor
on the ground to get a 200 HP combo.
Use the following illegal part combo: Ray Legend, Wyrm Gun, Wyvern
Bomb, Orca Pod, and Ultimate Legs.
An excellent combo to use to get sky-high with attacks is the
Raven Gun (illegal version of the Eagle), Athena Robo, Acrobat
Bomb, any pod, and the Ultimate Legs. Fire the Acrobat Bomb to
launch your Robo into the air, then time the jumps to get very
high. Keep firing the Raven Gun while you slowly descend. It is
possible to get about 20 shots from it.
Use Javiler, Formula Legs, Crystal Strike, Acrobat Bombs, and
Twin Flak Pods. Go in front or behind the opponent. Charge a few
times then use the Crystal Strike. Use Acrobat Bomb and Crystal
Use Lightning Sky Model (Rahu III or Rahuiel recommended, but
Breaker also works well). For Gun, use Eagle or Raptor. The Bomb,
Pod, and Legs are optional. You can either jump around or fly
(recommended).While jumping or flying, rapidly press B
to keep the rounds in the air (two or three will do). After that,
fire your gun as fast as possible on the ground. One round from
the gun on the ground will go straight and another will go up
and come down. While shooting at the enemy, the ones that have
been in the air will hit your enemy. Keep firing your gun and
this will be extremely drastic for your enemy.
Hint: Super Mario Bros. reference:
When the weird robot attacks Bogey's Café, defeat
it then the blue-haired person. When Harry asks if you are going
home, tell him that you will wander around. Then go to Hero's
home talk to Lucy (the woman that sweeps with the broom), You
will tell her about Z, and she will think that it is a band and
that you were a security guard. Talk about the band. She used
to hear the Groovy Goombas and their hit song "Fire Flower
Hint: Legend Of Zelda
After your first fight with the mystery Robo (Rahu)
at Bogey's, go to Hub Park. Talk to the girl in the red dress,
and she will tell you what she thinks the "Z" in Z Syndicate
stands for. One of the things she will tell you is Zelda.
Hint: Mega Man reference:
After the Rahu I body attacks Bogeys, go to the
park the same girl who says that the "Z" in Z Syndicates
Z stands for Zelda. She will also say that it stands for Zero.
Hint: Metroid reference:
After the first battle with the mystery Robo at
Bogey's, talk to the girl in the red dress at the Hub Park. Ask
her what she thinks the "Z" in Z Syndicate stands for.
She will sometimes say that it stands for Zebes.
Hint: Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy
Go to Raiden's place on the third or fourth day.
Talk to Don. He will make a comment about earthquakes and give
a quote from Arthur Dent of The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy
about never liking Thursdays.
Glitch: Dead kid in closet:
After you complete the game, do the Grand Battle. When
you go home, you will be able to go into Lucy's room. When you
are in her first room, you will a second door, When you go inside
the second room, there will be a blue closet door. Go up to the
door and press A. You will start to move away from the
door, then it will open. Then, a kid pops out and will fall on
the floor. He will start to talk to you. Once you are done talking
to him, he will start to get sucked into the wall.
Win arcade mode with the Wyrm gun. After you win the
final fight, it will show the picture of the Wyrm gun but it will
say "Dragon Gun".
Glitch: Incorrect grammar:
In A New Journey, when the Lab is attacked by Z, go
to the Presentation Room. Look to see P-01 on the wall. Below
it is a button. Go up to it and press A. Your character
should say, "I don't got time for this!" instead of,
"I don't have time for this!".
