Fighting the Soul of the Ancient Tree of Life

When fighting the Soul of the Ancient Tree of Life, never use a Fire spell. If this is done, it will counter-attack your entire party with this Fire magic or do an attack that can deal over 700 HP of damage. Sometimes he may even use it two times in a row that can immediately end the game. Instead, use others spells such as Ice 2 or Bolt 2, which can do some very heavy damage on him.

4 Ways to Get the Robe Of Lords

First way to get it is to play the Chocobo's Hot and Cold game and earn 10,000 points and redeem the points for Robe Of Lords by talking to the Mene the moogle

The second way is to go through the Stellazzio: Zodiac Coins sidequest. Give the 12th coin to Queen Stella and you will recieve a Robe Of Lords as your reward

The third way is to beat Hades and gain access to the Legendary Synthesis Shop. You must have a White Robe, a Black Robe and 30,000 Gil to get a Robe Of Lords.

The fourth way is to steal using Zidane. Bosses like Ozma and Hades carry a Robe Of Lords. Equip Zidane's Master Thief ability, which can be learned from using Thief Gloves (which can be bought in Treno's Auction House) and Bandit ability, which could be learn from Mythril Dagger. Equip the N-Kai Armlet to ensure that Zidane has a good chance of stealing successfully.

Jump Rope Mini-Game

In Alexandria, have Vivi approach the girls jumping rope near the ticket both and talk to them. They will let Vivi join them. Press X every time the Mark appears over his head to jump. If you keep on jumping without tripping, you can receive some gil, rare cards, and a key item. The rope gets faster after a while so good luck!

Coffee Quest

Give the guy at the Watchtower in Dali the three coffee beans he wants and he will give you the Prima Vista figurine.

Here is where you find the beans:

Pass near the Chocobo Forest, around the right side of the screen. In the Madain Sari kitchen Disc 3, before finishing the Card Game (While you're waiting for King Cid) head to Dali and check the Chief's hut for a key to the previously locked door inside the windmill.

Alternate Ending

You have to finish the Stellazzio (Zodiac) Quest and keep "Shina's Hammer", which you find in the room after fighting Lich on disk #4. Don't lose, use, or sell/combine the hammer. It has to be present in your inventory for you to get the alternate ending.

Get Excalibur I and II

To get Excalibur
Buy the "Magic Finger" item at the Treno Auction early on. Once you reach Dargelo, give this item to an eldery man you meet there -- and he will give you Excalibur in return.

To get Excalibur II
This one is way more difficult. You have to get all the way to Hades in under 12 hours. After beating Hades, check the farthest right pillar for the sword.

Frog Catching Awards

The frog catching minigame may seem like a stupid waste of time -- but it can actually be a source of some good items and new weapons for Quina, plus the number of frogs Quina eats will power up the "Frog Drop" spell. Here are the rewards:

2 frogs: Ore Stone
5 frogs: Ether
9 frogs: Silk Robe
15 frogs: Elixir

Unlimited MP

Have Amarant in your party and make sure he has learned the Chakra skill. Also, the minimum MP needed for this trick to work is 4 MP. Enter a battle and have Amarant cast Chakra on himself. For 4 MP, he will restore MP equivalent to about 20% of his maximum MP. Continually cast it until you get reached your maximum MP. Since you can do this to other characters in the party as well, you can end up will everyone with maximum MP.

Easy AP

Walk around in the darkness for awhile in the field and forests around the town that has the Auction House and lady who collects the zodiac signs. You will encounter a ghost. Give it some ore and you will win the battle, resulting in 10 AP.

Defeating Ozma

If you encountered all the spirits in Gaia and satisfied their requests go to Chocobo Aerial Garden (you will need a Gold Chocobo and a Dead Pepper). Examine the stone on the second platform and choose the third option, then the first option to fight Ozma. To defeat Ozma, put Zidane, Dagger, Quina and Eiko in your party. Have Quina use Magic Hammer three or four times to steal all Ozma's Magic Points -- from now on it cannot use any spells. Then, have Zidane and Quina attack and Dagger and Eiko heal (do not use summons, you need a large amount of MP in this battle). With some of patience (an half of an hour if you are lucky), you should defeat Ozma.

Easy AP

Walk around in the darkness for awhile in the field and forests around the town that has the auction house and lady who collects the zodiac signs. You will encounter a ghost. Give it some ore and you will win the battle, resulting in 10 AP.

Zidane's "Lucky Seven" Skill

Zidane's "Lucky Seven" skill is going to work when the single-digit of his HP is "7" (e.g -> 1007). It is going to cause a random damages of "7", "77", "777" and "7777". However, if the single-digit of his HP is not "7", then the damages it is going to cause will always be "1".

Battle Setup

Two must-have abilities for the entire party is auto-haste and auto-regen don't worry about equipping abilities like auto-potion because when you get further in the game the enimies will cause a lot more damage auto- potion and even beast killer, stone killer, ect are abilities that should only be used in the first 3 discs.

Easy Lifa Tree Defeat

To defeat the "soul" of the Lifa Tree just have Dagger or Eiko in your party, then just cast life on it. The boss is a dead (zombie) monster so bringing it back to life would be like killing it.

Kuppo the Moogle in the underground excavation tunnel

In the underground excavation tunnel on the second disk, you can borrow a guy's pick by trading him a potion. You can find this guy right past the 3rd(exit) switch. Climb past the vines and talk to the guy to get his pick. On the top level, go to the very far right and face the wall that looks bumpy. Start digging and shortly a moogle will pop out.

Griffin's heart

You want to make 10,000 gil easily? Well then go to the Treno auction and buy the Griffin's heart on disk 4. After you do that, go to the adventerer wandering by the Members Only tea party. Talk to him and he first will offer you 8,000 gil, select to No Way! he'll make an offer for 10,000 gil. Thats the highest amount you can get for griffin's heart.
