Harrison McGuire.

Once you get Zelos into your party, flag him as the avatar (the person who walks around) by scrolling over his picture and pressing X. When Zelos talks to any female NPC (even shop owners), he will get free items or Gald. They will give you different items and different amounts of Gald each time you leave the city and return. Repeat this frequently to get good items. Note: They do not give Zelos weapons, armor, or accessories.

This can be done as early as possible in the game. When done early it is also good for experience. When you get to Ossa Trail, fight everything you can and use combos frequently. If you do well in the fight, you will get lots of Beast Fangs and Beast Hides, can be sold for 1,000 Gald each. Repeat this as many times as desired.

After you rebuild Luin, there will be a shop called "Fighting Spirit" All of the items there are like toys, but are all better than the items you probably have. Buy Sheena's weapon called "Money Bag" and equip it. Then, go to the dragon in the Temple Of Earth and fight it. When Sheena is in battle and you win, the Gald gets doubled because of her weapon.

Go to the gnome place. Go all the way to the bottom by using your earthquake from the ring you got at the beginning of the game. Once you are all the way at the bottom, take a right. You will see a flying dragon. Defeat it for 10,000 Gald. Then, go to the secret passageway on your left. Go back the way you came (back to the dragon) and defeat it again. Keep doing this as many times as desired.

Get the accessory that gives you twice as much Gald and Sheena's "fake" weapon, the Money Bag, which also gives you twice as much Gald. Optionally, have anyone with an EX Skill called Happiness, which allows someone to occasionally get more Gald or experience. Then, fight the Dragon in the Earth Temple at the bottom of the bridges. It should be easy to defeat it late in the game. This results in 20,000 to 40,000 Gald each time. With the Happiness EX Skill, you can get from 21,000 to 41,000 Gald.

Hint: Finding Lyla:
If you go north from izoold without doing two things to get on the boat it will cause the boat to disappear. However, you are not stuck. You will find the girl again, but you must do other things first. This is also an opportunity to get Sheena. This will require a lot of leveling up, but is worth it. There are also two seals that can be opened. You must go to Himma and tell the woman that you are Sheena's friend. This will get you started towards getting Sheena. Luin will be attacked by the Desians and you must save it. You must save the girl being sacrificed to the fake Wind Guardian. Then, open that seal. You can also go through the Tower Of Mana and release a seal. After doing everything that you can, you should have Sheena in your party and the boat and Lyla will be in Izoold, ready for you. You much more powerful than you actually need to be to do everything needed in Palmacosta and the surrounding areas.

Hint: Fight a Bacura:
To fight a Bacura, the big solid Mana blocks in the Toize Mines, go to the last room, where you get the ore. There will be a one-eyed monster in there. fight it. Sometimes it will be a couple of Stone Golems with some other monsters, and sometimes it will be a Bacura. Just run away if it is not a Bacura and re-encounter it. The Bacura has 255 HP and you can only drain one. Also, it disappears after thirty seconds.
Janus Zeal.

Instead of going into the Toize Valley Mines to get to a Bacura battle, go to the SE Abbey. Go on the wide path outside of the abbey and fight a monster there.
Matt Connolly.

Hint: Fight against Aviation:
Get all nine Darkness Weapons and go to the Darkness Temple to fight Aviation.

Hint: Fight against Seles:
To fight Seles (Zelos' sister), go to the Meltokio arena after you get the emblem from Derris-Kharlan. Complete beginner and intermediate modes to unlock advanced mode. Complete advanced mode twice with any character to fight Seles in an extra match. By winning the match you will get Zelos' best weapon, the Last Fencer.

Hint: Fight against Garr, Meredy, and Farah:
Tn order to fight Garr, Meredy, and Farah from the previous Tales Of Destiny games, get near the end of the game when you have to defeat the dark dragon just before the ultimate battle against Mithos. Leave Derris Kharlan after obtaining the Derris Emblem. You will now be able to participate in the coliseum tournaments. After winning the advanced single tournament you will be able to participate in party tournaments. Win the beginner tournament and you will be able to fight in the advanced tournament. Before fighting the advanced tournament, set the difficulty on "Mania". Win the advanced tournament and you will have to fight an unexpected exhibition match against Garr, Meredy, and Farahf. Note: You will be able to use items.

Hint: Curry Recipe:
After you have met Altessa, leave then go back to his house this time with Zelos as your on-screen character. If you see Tabatha standing by the stove, talk to her. Lloyd will then appear as the on-screen character. Follow through the sequence that plays and she will teach you the recipe for curry, a dish that you cannot learn from the Wonder Chef. If this does not work the first time, then go back a short time later.

Hint: Devils Arms:
The Devils Arms are a set of cursed weapons you can find that appear to have very little attack power. However, after you defeat Abyssion in the Darkness Temple, try equipping them to defeat a monster. Each time they are used to kill a monster, they will become more powerful. These weapons can become the most powerful weapons in the game if you have the patience to battle with them.

The Devil's Arms are powerful weapons hidden around Tethe'alla and Sylvarant. They can surpass any other weapon and do over 2,500 damage per hit. It takes some work to get them. First, in the Mine where you get Inhibitor Ore, check the pieces of the Bakura after you smash it to get the "Evil Eye". Take it to Flanoir and show it to a dark-haired man in the front of the town, at the foot of the building named Abyssion. He will give you access to the other weapons. He will give you Lloyd's weapon. Go to the Gaoracchia Forest and you will find a dark chest. It contains Zelos' weapon. The next is in the Earth Temple. You must gather the five gnomes. They will let you pass (one of the gnomes is at Altessa's house). You will find Sheena's weapon in the chest that they were blocking. Next, go to Altamira's night life and travel to the casino. There will be a bridge nearby, and halfway across is a man that will sell you Genis' weapon for 1,000 gald. To get the next weapon, go to Triet and talk to two of the men near the oasis. Leave and search the desert for a skit point on the west side of the mountain. Trigger it and you will fight a Sandworm. Defeat it to get another of Zelos' weapons. You will find Presea's weapon in Latheon Gorge. Go to Welgaia to find Regal's weapon. Return to Flanoir and speak to Abyssion again. Go to Hakonesia Peak to receive Raine's weapon. You now have every weapon. Travel to the Temple of Darkness and go down to the seal. Abyssion will be waiting. He takes the weapons and transforms into a powerful Boss with 120,000 HP. Defeat him and you will get the "Devil's Arms" in their true form. The more enemies that your character defeats, the more power your weapons have. Presea will also receive the title "Empty Soul". Transfer your Battle Info to retain the power if you wish to start a new game.

Hint: Falcon Crest:
When Lloyd is low on health (health is in the red) and has the weapon "Material Blade" equipped, he can use a secret tech called the Falcon Crest. To use this tech, press X + A + B. Note: Lloyd must have the title "Eternal Swordsman" in use when attempting this tech.

Hint: Last Fencer:
In order for this trick to work, you must have already fought Seles with Zelos, then have gone on to fight Zelos later in the Tower of Salvation. Go through the Advance Class battles again with Lloyd. After you have received your prizes, Seles will return to the Arena and try to take revenge for her brother's death. If you defeat her, you get another Last Fencer and another item. You may need to face her after already going through Vinheim and getting the Sacred Stone; or have obtained the Derris Emblem.
Ross Sargent.

Hint: Pink Pearl Ring:
Note: You must have Sheena in your party. After you drop off Presea in Ozette, go to Sybak. Beside the library will be a shop or two and a pile of junk. Go to the junk pile, and an intermission sequence will start. Follow along with the sequence. At the end you will receive a Pink Pearl Ring. which is listed as a valuable item. Note: The person you must talk to has black hair.

Hint: Opening the secret doors in the Seal Room of the Wind Temple:
Use the ring on the pin wheels in this order to open the door on the right side: red, green, yellow, white, blue. For the one on the left, it is: blue, red, yellow, white, green.

Hint: Have both Kratos and the Last Fencer:
Instead of waiting to get the Derris symbol to get into the Coliseum, you can go there immediately after the Flanoir doctor part by choosing to have Kratos in your party and going to the Coliseum just before the Cruxis raid to get the Last Fencer (the strongest sword in the game next to the Devil's Arms). The Last Fencer can also be equipped by Kratos.

Hint: Summon Spirit Maxwell:
In order to find the Summon Spirit Maxwell, you must first find the Derris Emblem in Derris-Kharlan (which is late in the game, near the end ). Then, go to Exire (Half-elves village ) and go to the house with a man inside. He is the person that says that a team of half-elves and humans is a rare combination. Go up the stairs in front of his house and walk around to get to the back, which leads to secret passage. Walk until you see a tombstone. Equip the Ring of Fire, Water, Earth, Wind (which are Ruby, Aquamarine, Opal, Garnet). Then, you will fight Maxwell. He has 60,000 HP (easy mode in the customize menu) or 90,000 HP (hard mode). He also knows strong level 3 magic spells such as Thunder Arrow, Raging Mist, and Meteor Swarm.
Me Myself.

Hint: Get the locations of the enemies in your Monster List:
Have Raine use a Magic Lens on an enemy. That will fill the "Location" part of the enemy profile in the Monster List.
Kevin Veighey.

Hint: Colette: Maid costume:
After defeat the Dark Dragon and going through the door, go into the castle in Meltokio and find two maids facing each other. Talk to them and an intermission sequence will begin where Colette runs errands for a rich woman. After this, you will receive 100 Gald and the title: Maid, which lets you wear a maid costume.

Hint: Genis: Alternate costume:
After you defeat the Dark Dragon and go through the doors in Mithos' Castle, go back to Meltokio. Go to the slums and you will find a boy chasing a Kats. Genis will follow the boy and the Kats will get away. Afterwards, talk to the Kats in the item shop near the secret entrance. He will tell you to talk to the elder in Kats Village in Sylvarant. When you talk to the Elder Kats, he will give Genis a Kats costume. You will have to return to the slums. After that, watch the intermission sequence and Genis will keep the Kats costume.
Ryan Pagunsan.

Hint: Genis, Kratos, and Zelos: Unlimited TP:
This trick requires the level 4 Ex skill Spell Charge and works best in combination with Concentrate. Note: Kratos and Zelos have Concentrate. Super Chain, Spell Charge, and another level 4 skill, Hold B while casting. When the character starts flashing, press A before releasing B. Press A again, or use any non-magical special move (including Guardian/Force Field). The spell will use 0 TP. Combined with the Slasher EX skill, Kratos and Zelos will become the ultimate "Jack of all trades" in the game.
Adam Whyte.

Hint: Lloyd: Easy Comboist title:
Make a party with at least Lloyd, Genis, and Raine. Raine must know Ray and Genis must at least know Explosion, Tidal Wave, Cyclone, Indignation, or Ground Dasher. Perform a Unison Attack on any enemy using Raine's Ray, one of the above mentioned spells for Genis, and any attack from Lloyd. If done correctly, after the characters perform their individual attacks Raine and Genis will perform Prism Stars, causing at least 1,200 damage and 30 hits with Lloyd and another character adding even more hits. It is possible to score 72 hits using this technique with Lloyd performing Raining Tiger Blade. You can also use this to do a lot of damage to Bosses.

At a certain level about 30 to 50, Genis and Raine will get their advance attacks. Before using Unison attack, have a few combos. Then, use Raine's Ray Attack and Genis' Cyclone, Explosion, Ground Dasher, or Indignation. This may require a few attempts. After the Unison attack. Raine and Genis will fuse their attacks and make a new attack called Prism Stars. This will take a thirty hit combo. If done correctly, you will get a sixty hit combo, and at the end of the battle the message "Lloyd's new title combo expert" will appear. This is recommended through the entire game until you get your last title at Derris Karhlan (end of game).

Hint: Lloyd: Combo master title:
To obtain this title you must perform a 100 hit combo. To do this easily have both Colette and Lloyd in the party. Lloyd must know either Sword Rain: Alpha or Sonic Sword Rain. Colette must know Hammer Rain together in unison attack. Their attack will become Stardust Rain. If you use this against a very large enemy such as the Dragon, the Gold Dragon, or the Dark Dragon, it will hit them approximately 85 times. Add that to the combos you had before and you should be well over 100. At the end of the battle Lloyd will get the title, Combo Master, which is his best title except for the one he can get in Derris-Kharlan.

Hint: Lloyd: Better combo:
Press A + Forward, A(2). This will result in four hits instead of the standard three. If you have the "Add Combo" Ex skill on, press A + Forward, A + Down, A(2). This will result in five hits instead of four. Follow this with a hit heavy combo such as Sword Rain-Tiger Rage-Tempest Beast or Sword Rain Beast to maximize your combo rating.
Jake Clark.

Hint: Lloyd: Alternate costume:
After you save Pietro and Luin is destroyed, you can give money to build the city back. This requires more than 500,000 Gald. When you donate money, do not give away more than 70,000 Gald at a time. When you donate enough money, Pietro will tell you that he is going on a journey. After this, go to the pier where the boat is at in Luin. You will see Aifread. Talk to Aifread and buy the boat for 3,000 Gald. Leave the town, re-enter, and talk to him again. Answer "Yes" to his question to get Lloyd's alternate pirate costume.

After you defeat the Dark Dragon and go through the doors in Mithos' Castle, go back to Altamarina. You will find a lady who has lost her children. Answer "Yes" to her question and find all of her children. After that, she will leave a gift at the hotel. They will be swimsuits. It will say that someone is waiting for Lloyd when he is dressed up. Note: Save before you talk to the manager so you know what swimsuits to get.
Ryan Pagunsan.

Hint: Presea: Alternate costume:
After you defeat the Dark Dragon and go through the doors in Mithos' Castle, go back to Altamarina Then, go to the Larzeno Company and into the president's office. Talk to the old man and you will get the "Klonoa Costume".
Ryan Pagunsan.

Hint: Presea: Stuffed Bunny axe:
Get the title "Little Madam" from the Dance Party sub-event and purchase the Axe "Pow Hammer DX" from Luin after rebuilt. Equip both the title and axe and fight numerous battles. Have Presea in your team fighting. If done correctly the axe will randomly turn into a pink bunny with a blue vest for one battle, but that you can do many times over. After the battle when Presea uses the stuff bunny, the axe will turn back to its original form. It may take many battles before it turns into the stuffed bunny.

Hint: Raine: Alternate costume:
After you Defeat the Dark Dragon and go through the doors in Mithos' Castle, go back to Asgard and run to the Ruins all the way up. The people of Asgard will want Raine to perform the ritual again, and she will keep the Maiden costume.
Ryan Pagunsan.

Hint: Regal: Alternate costume:
After you defeat the Dark Dragon and go through the doors in Mithos' Castle, go back to Meltokio. Run all the way to the church where you will find two Wonder Chefs. Run up to them, and you will find both of them arguing about an "ultimate recipe". Then the original Wonder Chef will disappear, and you will have a cook off with the other chef. You automatically win. Soon after, the original wonder chef will appear again and give Regal his "Wonder Chef" costume.
Ryan Pagunsan.

Hint: Sheena:
You must be at least level 25 to get Sheena.
Vishal Rangwani.

Hint: Sheena: Alternate costume:
After you go to Mithos' Castle and open the door after you defeat the dark dragon, go to Mizuho. Talk to the person in the chief's house. Go to the Lightning Temple and talk to the spirit of the chief at the altar where you fought Volt. Go back to Mizuho and the chief will wake up. He will ask for Sheena to spend a day at Mizuho. When you return, you will see that Sheena has been chosen for the next chief, and you will get Sheena's alternate chief costume.
Ryan Pagunsan.

Hint: Zelos: Alternate costume:
After you Defeat the Dark Dragon and go through the doors in Mithos' Castle, go back to Meltokio. Go to Zelos' Mansion. Girls will be there, talking to Zelos in a mini-skit. After the skit he will wear a mask to get away from the girls.

Hint: Zelos: Roses:
In order for Zelos to have roses, you must have Zelos' Narcissist title and the Devil's Arm "Fafnir". Equip them both at the same time. Fight a few battles and eventually his dagger will turn into a few roses. After the battle, Zelos' roses will disappear.

Hint: Zelos: Getting good items:
The items that Zelos charms from females using his Personal EX Skill is dependent on his luck rating, which changes every time he talks to a female. You can increase his chances of getting good items (for example, Energy Tablets, Hourglass, Rune Bottle) by equipping him with two Rabbit's Feet. These can be bought in Luin. It is a good idea to buy them early, before you meet Zelos, to get a head start on the item collecting.
Robb Ross.

Hint: Defeating the Dragon Knight:
Use the following trick to defeat the Dragon Knight in advanced mode in the coliseum with Genis and Raine. Wait until it flies up into the air, then run underneath it. If you are lucky, the dragon will land on you, and you should be able to cast spells without having to worry about getting hit. Try to use spells that do not make the enemy move to the left or right (Photon with Raine; Lightning, Thunder Blade, or Indignation with Genis). This could also be applied to Zelos or Kratos if you are having trouble with them.
Karadur Atani.

Hint: Defeating the Phantom Knight:
To defeat Phantom Knight, a powerful monster in Derris-Kharlan, you must equip the Diamond, which you get from Origin, to your lead character. After this is done, only your lead character can cause melee damage to it, unless you use a union attack against it and it will take damage.

Hint: Defeating Seles:
You will receive Zelos' Last Fencer Sword and the Elemental Circlet no matter who you use to fight Seles. Lloyd is recommended for this job, because of his high HP and Str. Use the Material Blade or the Ninja Sword. At the start of the fight she almost always casts Freeze Needles. She also uses Absolute and has her own Sword Skills using the Last Fencer as weapon. To avoid damage from her magic skills use Guardian when she casts Freeze Lancer. Use Back Jump (X + Away) when she casts Absolute. Try using Tiger Sword Rain when you get close to her, then use Back Jump to avoid her close-range attacks (the Last Fencer or a bag attack). If you keep using this strategy she will die quickly. She has 12,000 HP.
Luiz Gustavo.

Hint: Defeating Garr, Farah Oersted and Meredy:
This may be one of the most difficult battles in the game. You can only use three characters in Party Tournaments, so choose well. Garr is not so strong as he appears. His only advantage is his long range bow attack. His best Bow Skill is Gale, during which he shoots about five arrows at once. However he also has sword attacks. Defeat him after dealing with the girls. You must start with Meredy. Keep in mind that you must defeat her very quickly, because you cannot interrupt her magic casting. She use the most powerful spells, including Absolute, Explosion, Holy Lance and even Meteor Storm. She may sometimes also cast Grave, Freeze Lancer and Acid Rain. Also, she will automatically revive once you kill her, so you must kill her again. Farah is who you should fear the most. Her attacks are the strongest in the party, and she has skills such as Swallow Dance, Eagle Dive, Twin Palm Strike and the powerful Chi with Maximum Burst. Once she hits you with the Chi, she will link a powerful attack where she launches another three Chi Attacks. Use the following strategy while you (as Lloyd) fights Meredy alone, and have the other two take care of Farah and Garr. Go into this battle with your Gels and Life Bottles to the maximum. Do not worry about the Magic Lens. Even if you do not use, it will be registered in your Monster List, status and everything.
Luiz Gustavo.

Lloyd: Tiger Sword Rain (or any other Sword Rain skill) and Demonic Circle and Rising Falcon are what you will need to use the most. Skills that stagger opponents (such as Beast techniques) are useful against Meredy, as this will at least keep her in ground a few seconds so that you can heal yourself. Rising Falcon is a good choice to confuse your opponents, and to avoid Garr bow techniques and some of Meredy's magics.
Zelos/Kratos: Healing techniques for support, and magics such as Thunder Blade or Air Thurst. As for the skill, Light Spear Cannon, Super Lighting Blade and Fierce Demon Fang. This character's function here is to keep Farah busy while you defeat Meredy twice. Kratos' Judgement may be useful if you have someone to protect him while he casts it.
Regal: He is useful against Farah. Most of his skills are good in this battle. His function is the same as Zelos/Kratos, but use him to deal more damage to Farah.
Presea: If you put her in battle, she may be useful to help you killing Meredy or perhaps serve as a human shield to protect a spell-caster character (if the third character is one).
Colette: Not very useful, but if you want her in battle, Holy Song is essential as well Angel Feathers and perhaps Judgement. She will act as a supportive spell-caster. Have a tough character cover her while you deal with Meredy and Garr.
Genis: Starts with mid-level magics (that inflicts regular damage and are quick casting). When the opponents are away dealing with the other two characters, use magics as Ground Dasher and Tidal Wave (that haves a wide area of hit), and to inflict most damage Explosion, Indignation and Meteor Storm.
Raine: Healing and support is the only thing she will do, maybe one time or another casting Photon or Ray suits stop the enemies that are around. Try keep her the farthest you can from Garr.

Hint: Combos:
In a fight, press Forward + A, Forward + A, A, Sword Rain: Alpha (Sword Rain, Sonic Sword Rain, Sword Rain: Beta may also work), Hunting Beast (Raging Best also works). In this combo, you will stun the enemy, (or make the enemy fall and use time to stand up ), which gives you time to give to do extra damaging attacks to them and is also a good opportunity for spellcasters to cast quickly without being disturbed.

With Lloyd, press Forward + A, Forward + A, Forward + A, Swords Rain, Psi Tempest (while holding Forward), turn around (for a good position), Rising Falcon. This results in 12 hits, RF is the finisher.

With Lloyd, press Forward + A, Forward + A, A, Sword Rain, Sonic Thrust, Tempest, Fierce Demon Fang, Tempest Thrust or Tempest Beast or Hunting Beast. Note : Try equipping the Sardonyx (from Volt) or equip Shiden (sold in weapon shop in Mizuho) to make the Sonic Thrust into Lighting Thrust, giving extra damage once you execute Sonic thrust in the combo. Also, instead of using Tempest, you can also use Tiger Blade, and if you equip Sardonyx or Shiden it will turn to Lighting Tiger Blade for even more damage. Level 1 techs may be bad for damage, but the best tech for opening a combo or chaining from level 1 to level 3 techs, plus the level 1 techs contains most of Lloyd's special techs.

With Lloyd, press A + Forward, A, A, Super Sonic, Sword Rain, Sword Rain, Tiger Blade. This results in a combo of at least 20 hits if you can push the enemy up against the edge of the field.

Use the following trick to get your max combo up. You must have these party members to do it and have their unison attacks set as:

Raine: Ray
Genis: Indignation
Zelos: Air Thrust or Thunder Blade
Lloyd: Raining Tiger Blade

Once your gauge is full, choose a target and use Lloyd's basic attack 3x combo and follow up with Sword Rain. As soon as the last strike hits, unleash the Unison attack. To make it easy, have all their abilities set to the same direction. By this time you will already have twelve hits from Lloyd alone and any other hits from your allies. After your team unleashes all their attacks, Genis and Raine unleash a Duo attack called Prism Stars that hits thirty times. It is possible to get a max combo of 89 with this move.
james birdsong.

Hint: Recommended level:
When fighting through the first ruins towards the Seal of Fire, it is recommended that you get to at least level 13 for each character. If not, the battle with the Boss will either require an absolutely brilliant strategy or result in the death of your party. Also, make sure that Genis has his skills set to only Aqua Edge and/or Icicle if you have obtained that skill; otherwise he will waste TP using skills that will cause very little damage for the cost.
Ross Sargent.

Hint: Recommended party:
It does not matter if you have Kratos or Zelos. They are not really different. They have the exact moves. They also both have Judgment. Zelos is recommended, because he will be able to have his strongest weapon, the Last Fencer. The party should have Lloyd with the weapon that you get from the last sword dancer, Colette with the Angel's Halo her arena weapon. Note: Use Colette, as the enemy you are going to fight is very big. She can do her unison with Lloyd's Stardust Rain. This can result in 112 hits if used on the biggest enemy in the game, The Living Armor. To use it, Colette must use Hammer Rain and Lloyd Sword Rain: Alpha. If you are fighting a small Boss, have Genis and his arena weapon instead, Zelos and his best weapon Last Fencer, and if he has Judgment, use it for unison. His Judgment is his best attack. If you used it at least fifty times, he can randomly use Angel's Judgment (a very strong Judgment that hits over thirty times before an angel appears and does about fifteen more hits; Kratos can also do this). Raine is a must have for any party. She is the best healer in the game.In the unison, have her use Ray if Genis is there. If not, get her to the S side and have her learn Holy Lance.

Hint: Getting into the Wind Seal Room:
In Asgard, when sealing the Wind Seal, it is difficult to get into the Seal Room. Light the two lamps next to each other to open a secret room, which has mini pinwheels in the room. Around the entire Asgard ruin there are tablets on the walls, but you cannot read them unless you light the lamps around the tablets, with the original form of the Sorcerer's Ring. When you read the two of them that say something about jewels, and the one that says the cycle of power through the Earth, Gods, and Wind Spirit, it is easy to get into the Seal Room. The Ruby is the red pinwheel, the Pearl is the white pin wheel, the Topaz is the yellow pinwheel, the Wind Spirit is the blue pinwheel, and the Emerald is the green pin wheel.

In order to get into the Wind Seal room, you must make the pinwheels spin in the correct order. The order is red, yellow, green, white, blue. After spinning it in the correct order, a door in the back will open.

Hint: Avoiding a trap:
In the Balacruf Mausoleum (the Wind Seal), you can avoid the spikes that come up from the ground. Simply walk slowly across them (only press the Analog-stick a little) and the spike will not come up. They seem to react to the speed of your movement.

Hint: Visiting Corrine after death:
After you defeat the Dark Dragon and go through the doors in Mithos' Castle, go back to Iselia. There will be a little skit with Sheena hearing Corrin's voice. After that, go to the Temple of Martel. Go to where you first met the Angel. You will see Corrine in his true form (Verius), but you will not be able to summon him.

Hint: Lloyd's mother:
To do this you must have Kratos in your party. After you get the Derris Emblem in Derris-Kharlan, go to Luin. Once there, examine all of the statues except for Lloyd's. After that, examine Lloyd's statue. This will trigger a conversation between Lloyd and Kratos and you will find out a little bit about Lloyd's mother and Luin.

Hint: Fighting Zelos:
Get to the poing you are in Flanoir and Lloyd is talking to Zelos when your about to leave (when you are there to see the doctor). If Lloyds says "Can I trust you?" you will have to fight Zelos. However if Lloyd says "I trust you", then you will not. An easy way to decide is to save the game before you enter Flanoir. Go through the scenes, then see what Lloyd says. It may differ on who you talk to the night before, and it changes occasionally when you talk to Zelos.

Hint: Arena weapons:
When you reach Mithos' Castle, defeat the Dark Dragon and open the door. Go through the door, but do not go through the teleporter to Mithos. After you have opened the door and gone through it, go back to Meltokio. Go to the arena and fight in advanced mode with any character to get a personal arena weapon for that person.

Hint: Bigger enemies:
After returning from the scene where you save Genis and Raine from the soldiers by the Tethe'alla Bridge, you can go to Meltokio. However, you cannot go through the gate. Go into the Meltokio Sewer. Eventually you will see the pedestal that allows you to change the Sorcerer's Ring function. Change the function and use the Sorcerer's Ring to shrink yourself. Then, get into a battle. The rats will be bigger, and will deal more damage. Note: It should still work if you have already completed the sewer.

Hint: Attack attributes:
After receiving special items from the Summon Spirits, you can change your weapon's element in order to deal more damage to some enemies. For example, using Water against a Fire-type enemy. Incidentally, some of these allow special techniques once conditions are met. Refer to the "Special abilities" hint for details.

Hint: Pac-Man reference:
In Flanoir near the Weapon shop are three ice statues. One of them is Pac-Man.

Hint: Klonoa reference:
A Klonoa reference can be found in the Presea's Dream Traveler title that you get from George in Altimira (near the end of the game).

Hint: Final Fantasy 7 reference:
In the slums in Meltolkio a solider is looking for a cute flower girl in the slums, which is a reference to Aeris in Final Fantasy 7.

Hint: Titanic reference:
In Palmacosta on the ship by the town square, there are people on the front imitating the famous scene from Titanic.

Glitch: Collette flies without wings:
Note: This glitch only takes effect before you release the Fire Seal. When in and after battle during the time where it shows how much Grade, experience, etc. that you earned, notice that Collette floats just as if she had wings from after the Fire Seal.

Glitch: Buy nothing:
In the House of Guidance, the trade salesman sells Metal Spheres for 8.0 Grade. However, no matter how much Grade you have, he tells you that it is not enough. You will however still lose the Grade; it is as if you spent 8.0 Grade for nothing.

Glitch: Open passageway that is already open:
The first time you are in Sybak, in the basement with Kate, examine the "Secret Passageway" before you go through it. It will make the sound of the passageway opening, but the passageway will already be opened. Note: You can only do this once per game.

Glitch: Collette reappears:
When you release the seal for Origin, Mithos will take over Collette's body and fly away. She will leave the party. However, if you have the highest relationship level with Collette you can go back to the Temple Of Darkness and try to enter the hole in the wall on the stairs. She will show up, telling you to be careful even though she is no longer in your party.

Glitch: Sheena referred to as male:
When you reach the final battle and everyone is sent into a trap, if you selected Zelos as the person you talked with at Flanoir, the trap with the spider that devours souls will involve Sheena and Collete. Collete will go first, and Sheena will say "Heh, he beat me to it."
Brian Cice.

Glitch: Zelos' magic words:
In Heimdal before you enter Torrent forest to battle Kratos and release Origin's seal, talk to Zelos. He will say his "Magic Words", "What will be, will be." Before you go to the Tower of Salvation to battle Mithos, go all the way back to Asgard. Go to the area where Linar and Aisha live then go to the far southeastern part of it. Talk to one of the middle-aged women there. One will say at some point, "What will be, will be.", which is the same thing that Zelos says.
taixi gentile.

Hint: Infinite use of Magic Lens:
Once an enemy has been scanned with the Magic Lens, you can keep tabs on their health (particularly useful for the nameless underworld being and other Bosses) by going into the action menu, selecting items, and selecting the Magic Lens. You will be given a call out displaying the creature's current HP/TP. Make sure to exit with B instead of pressing A and using the lens. Also, be sure to scan the enemy at least once.
