How to get cloud (I haven't tried this one yet)
When you are in the missile base [note you must have Irvine and Zell on your
team. Once you are in the missile base and you get all the way to the computer
room know matter how well you done you will fight these soldiers. Draw off the
red soldier not the blue ones it will be a question mark. once you get up to the
top, and you fight that blue MRV you will have to use the drawn magic on it,
once you beaten it you will get a buster sword. Later on go to Odin's place and
use the buster sword on him when you use it, it will help at the end in disc
three when Seifer chops Odin in half instead of getting Gilgamesh you will get
The ex Balamb Pupil:
The Ex-Balamb Pupil can help to eradicate rules as he only uses the one rule. He
can be found at the docks at Balamb Town fishing after the occupation.
How to attack every time with a limit attack:
First thing, during a battle, keep a character in "yellow", then when
it's time to attack press the circle button till you get the "special
How to kill the T-rex with just one shot:
Make junction with "death" magic to the status attack.
Haste isn't the best spell for speed. 100 Triples will boost it quite a lot more
than Haste. In my game Squall kills something and his turn comes up again before
it hits the ground.
In order to use the "Solomon Ring" you must have these items: x6 Steel
Pipes, x6 Remedy+`s, & x6 Marlboro Tentacles....this item releases GF
If your forgot to Draw the GF`s from the earlier battles in the game you can
get another chance, if you want to complete your guardians like I did:
Locations: Ultimecia Castle-Bosses
1. Odin: Disc 3 & 4,in 20:00mins;Randomly appears-Non-Boss
2. Phoenix: Phoenix Pinion-Use item wisely; appears to auto Revive all
3. Boko the Chocobo: Solve at least on of the Chocobo puzzles,& use
4. Minimog: GF Ability; Minimog Amulet....each time you use Minimog it uses
gil;20 2000gil,and the price rises with your level
5. Moomba: You can call upon moomba using the Friendship Item
6. Gilgamesh: Near End of Disc 3;will appear once Odin Dies ;Gilgamesh is a Boss
Battle GF; you just can't control him. Random Attacks
1. Zantetsuken - Cuts all enemies in half; resulting in Death
2. Excaliber - Strong attack against all enemies
3. Excalipoor - Causes 1 point of damage to each enemy
4. Masamune - Extremely Strong attack against All Enemies
Cactuar Island hint:
You know that little sand island, out to the Southeast, called Cactuar Island?
Make sure that when you go to him, all your characters are junctioned with water
to give you an added advantage. Also make sure Leviathan is level 50+ his water
attack will cause 9,999HP damage. Plus put the ability RECOVER & REVIVE on
the character not using Leviathan. Also make sure at the beginning of the battle
to cast haste on all your characters, you must finish this GF off quickly or
else he runs away and you must start over. One other thing this is also a good
place to build up your GF's the Cactuar, on this Island give you 20AP so after
10 battles you make up to 200AP.
When you beat Omega Weapon, don't go to the Last Boss with Ultimecia. Instead go
to you character options and select "Proof that Omega Weapon Exists".
When you click on it, it will give you a recent background info on the creature
that tells you how to beat it easier next time.
No Death at end:
Equip auto-potion to Irvine and make sure you have enough final limit break Aim,
have plenty of x-potions (no other potions). At the end when fighting Ultimecia,
her final form you will be reduced to 1 but you will use auto-potion immediatly,
but right before you use auto potion keep hitting Circle repeatedly and you will
get your limit break up and then get 100 % health. Keep shooting her until it
reaches zero then repeat on next turn, you are bound to win.
No Random Encounters:
There is a way to not fight any monsters on the world map besides using Diablos'
encounter-none ability. If you walk on a road or train tracks, you won't have to
fight any enemies. This is handy early on in the game when your HP is low and
need to get to Balamb Garden or Balamb.
Kill the zombie with one hit:
When you go to negotiate with the president (disc 1) use a GF on him in human
form and when he changes use Phoenix down (by clicking on phonix down and when
the people screen comes up press left) Then he should automatically be dead.
To use triple very early on in a fight , junction Cerberus to someone with the
initiative ability, use Cerberus right away. now you can use magic x3 the whole
After receiving Ragnarok go to the bottom left of the screen. There should be a
base there if you defeat the boss (Bahamut) you will get him he will come on
your side. After Bahamut go father into the base and you will fight Ultima
Weapon draw "Eden" from him.
If you have a GF who has learned "Boost", this trick will work. While
your GF is about to appear on the screen, hold down "Select" and you
should see a hand pointing a finger on the "Square" button and a
number next to it. Keep holding "Select" and rapidly hit
"Square" This will raise that number which means more damage to the
enemy. But make sure you stop when an X appears over the hand. If you don't, the
number will start back at the beginning. Wait for the X to go away and repeat
the process. The higher the number reached, the more damage will be caused.
At the missile base near the beginning of Disc 2 there is a way to mess around
with the missile control. At the missile control panel, after setting up the
error ratio, go to equipment. Press and hold Square and Triangle then press up
or down to get a dancing elite guard or a normal one.
Infinite Items with a Pocketstation:
If you have Final Fantasy 8(US), a Pocketstation and a Memorycard, you can use
the Pocketstation game Chocobo World to get Infinite Items. Just do the
1. Download the Chocobo World game from Final Fantasy 8 onto your
Pocketstation, (Downloaded after you have caught a Chocobo.)
2. Start playing through Chocobo World, collecting as many items as you can.
3. Once you have the items you want plug the Pocketstation and the Sony
Memory card into your Playstation, go to the internal memory card manager and
save Chocobo World into the Sony Memory card (Warning: it takes 7 blocks of
memory to store)
4. Start playing your Final Fantasy 8 game with the file that you have caught
a chocobo with, go to the game menu and choose , get to the menu. You can then
transfer the items into your FF8 game, choose the option to take Boco(the
character you play Chocobo World with) home, which also lets you transfer all
the items you have collected in the Pocketstation game into the Final Fantasy 8
game, and then choose the option to send Boco into the Pocketstation game again.
NOW, get to the option on the Final Fantasy 8 game to see all the item you got
from the Pocketstation.
5. Now comes the Infinite Item part of this cheat. Get to the Memorycard Menu
again, but this time copy the Chocobo World files that are inside the Sony
Memorycard back into your Pocketstation, and then do step 4 (transferring items
into FF8) over and over again to, finally, get Infinite Items.
Note : you can do this to get 16 or more MiniMog abilities for all your G.F.s
to use, just find MiniMog inside the Pocketstation game and then just do the
transferring cheat mentioned again to do it over and over.
Easy Card Games:
Want to play any card game without those ugly rules you hate so much? Then don't
spread them! By playing a card game with somebody that says they want to play
with combined rules, and you accept, the rules will spread. To avoid this, when
they ask you to play with combined rules, say NO. Keep saying no until they
agree to play with just the regular rules by just saying "wanna play"
or whatever they say.
Easy Life Restoration:
As soon as you have Status-Attack-Junction, get 100 Drains and junction them to
whoever has the ability. Depending on how much damage you do, you will be healed
if you hit the opponent!
