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.
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. Matu.
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. Ssgotenks04.
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. Kenneth C. Winterbottom the 4th.
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. Davidleesr.
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. donna terrelf.
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). Dterrymikejustin.
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. Drakonis_17.
reference: In Palmacosta on the ship by the town square, there are people on the front imitating the famous scene from Titanic. Drakonis_17.
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. Aaron J. Kulhanek.
The following special abilities are either difficult to get or can only be activated when certain conditions are met. Rednal29.
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.

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.
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. Ryan Pagunsan.
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. Charcoal90k.
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. Guppyboy89.
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.
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. jjroca030.
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. SmartKid1192.
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.
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.
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. Ax3001.

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.
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.

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.

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. SukkahGotServed.
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.
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.
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. GeminiDragon588.
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. Yggdrasill4000.
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.

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.
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. Vincenttoast.
