Hint: Easy Florins:
In the Shadow World, there is a Grim Reaper that pays
gold for Spirit Orbs. After you have obtained the weapons for
each character from him, he buys the Spirit Orbs for Florins.
Use the save point after the bridge then go through the gate and
kill all the monsters. Leave, then go through again. The monsters
will have respawned. Keep collecting the orbs and sell them.
To save a lot of Florins during the game for weapons and armor,
kick over every barrel and box that you see to get the free items
and not have to buy them from the stores. . If you want fast Florins,
sell all of the items you find to the shops.
Hint: Defeating the Final Master:
Power up Tai as much as possible. Have a lot of SP
Restores and a very strong sword. The Master is extremely powerful
and is very fast. Keep using the Tai Earth attack and you should
Hint: Defeating Talos:
To defeat Talos in the last level, you will need your
strongest weapon and many Healing Poisons and fruit. When you
are in the void and have already fused with your shadow and going
to fight Talos, have him make his first attack. After his first
attack the best combination is X(2) and A(3). After
that combination press Y to go to the menu and choose Shin
Splitter. After you are done with Shin Splitter, if you timed
it correctly, do X(2) and A(3) again followed by
Shin Splitter. Keep repeating this until Talos gets mad and uses
his special move. When Talos attacks, make sure you are holding
R. When Talos splits in three, do not attack all of them.
Just run around until two of them disappear. When Talos uses his
ghost ability, go around the ghost. Attack Talos with one of your
special abilities or use X, A, X or A,
X, A. When Talos uses his quick ability, hold R
and move Left, Right, or Away before he attacks.
Note: When Talos is about to die (with little health) make sure
when he uses his quick ability that you have 1000+ Poisons. You
will not move at that time.
Hint: Getting the heart for the robot:
Go back down to the mines and defeat one creature after
you get the crystal for the professor. Note: Do not use the portal.
Hint: Juggle attack:
Note: To do this attack you must use either Tal or
Buki. When fighting an enemy, press X(2), A then
follow it with A(3). The last button combo will juggle
the enemy, and does more damage then a regular attack.
Hint: Hukin's Fate:
After you get Ailish in your party on your way back
to Haskilia, you will pass through Noland Farm. Go inside the
house and go downstairs to find a chest containing a weapon for
Tal called Hukin's Fate. This sword casts poison on enemies.
Hint: Extra song weapon for Elco:
After you get past the Shadow World and return to Haskillia,
go to the closest blacksmith. Then, with Elco, use his Ion Fluxinator
gun and get two Razor Edge power ups. These give an extra 35 strength
Hint: Transentia: Defeating the Prototype
When you reach the city of Transentia, find the elevator
and take it to the floor with the university and Kamo's item shop.
Just outside the item shop is a ladder. Use Tai to climb it and
a robot will tell him that he can challenge the Prototype Robot
Warrior. Note: Only Tai can challenge him. Climb the second ladder
and the fight will begin. This is a very difficult battle, however
if you use the following strategy you will win. However, this
requires time and patience. It is also recommended that you use
a weapon with a high critical and moderate strength. The robot
has few attacks. One is a single strike, the next is a double
strike, and its most powerful attack is a charged 360 degree that
will instantly kill you (you cannot block it). When the battle
begins, run to bottom left corner and start blocking. When he
starts to attack, wait until he does the double strike attack
(it has a yellow streak). After blocking the second strike, hit
him once then start blocking again. Repeat this until he charges
up for the instant kill attack. When he starts glowing, run to
the opposite corner and the attack will not reach you. After the
attack, run back to the first corner. This corner is best because
it has the least camera problems. Repeat this process until it
is defeated. By following this strategy you can defeat the robot
without getting hit. The fight will take some time to finish,
but you will win. Once the robot dies it will drop a large gold
bar that you can sell for a lot of Florins. Open the chest on
the platform and you will get another of Tai's Wolf Totems.
Note: The part that describes the three attacks is mostly correct.
However the attack where he starts to charge up then does a 360
strike does not kill you instantly (when using the Skill Strike
Iron Warrior). Instead, it deals you 2,000 damage and also dispels
your Iron Warrior. Also, when he is charging up you have enough
time to deal an A, X, A combo, which will
shorten your fight considerably.

Glitch: Unlimited rare items and Florins:
Start at the save point at Illumina Castle. Go out
through the gate towards the Castle Checkpoint and break open
the four pots and the barrel to collect what you can get. Go
back out to the save point and save the game. Then, go to the
menu and quit all the way to the main screen. Load your saved
game and repeat (select "Quit", then "Quit"
again, press Start, then select "Continue Game").
Note: Do not select "Quit" then load your game; this
will not work. Keep doing this as many times as desired to receive
items and money. There is also a small chance of getting a Huge
Gold Bar. Doing this is worthwhile at the beginning of the game
because you will build up your money to buy runes for Tal's weapons
and armor and to buy potions.
