  • Twilight Palace dungeon

    Successfully complete the Twilight Palace quests from the Katz Guild to unlock the Twilight Palace dungeon. There will be one of those quests available from Chapter 5 through Chapter 8.

  • Alternate ending sequences

    Successfully complete the indicated task to view the corresponding ending sequence:

      Bad: Defeat Marta first, then Lloyd during the final battle.

      Normal: Lose to Lloyd and Marta during the final battle, then defeat Ratatosk. If you did not make enough good choices during the game, you will get the normal ending.

      Good: Lose to Lloyd and Marta during the final battle, then defeat Ratatosk. If you made enough good choices during the game, you will get the good ending.

  • Ase Nova unison attack

    When Emil and Marta both have the "Special" skill equipped, they will sometimes do a special unison attack called "Arse Nova". This happens randomly at times, however, if certain conditions are met, it will always happen. The key is in the elemental grid at the bottom left corner of the screen. When the grid shows equal parts dark and light, press C when the unison attack gauge is over half full with either Emil or Marta to do Ase Nova. If the Field Element is light, do one base Dark element attack (for example, Demon Fang with the "Tenebre" skill equipped), then do the unison. If the Field Element is dark, do a weak Light attack (for example, Savage Reaper with the "Lumin" skill equipped), then perform the unison. Arse Nova is relatively powerful, and usually gets anywhere from 15 to 30 hits in as part of a combo.

  • Mystic Artes

    To perform your character's Mystic Artes (Hi-Ougi), you must first reach approximately level 30. Then, equip the "Special" skill. With the "Special" skill equipped, perform either a High Magic Arte or an Arcane Art, and hold B. Your character should then perform their Mystic Arte (Hi-Ougi).

  • Emil's Ain Soph Aur secret Arte

    After the Unison bar is full, press B to do a Mystic Arte using Emil after using an Arcane Arte. Note: Emil must be in Ratatosk mode. Then, press B again before his Mystic Arte finishes, which is after his face's picture appears, to execute the Ain Soph Aur secret Arte. This is a light elemental attack.

  • The Legend Of Dragoon reference

    One of the conversations between Emil, Tenebrae, and Collette mentions the eight Sylvarant dynasty warriors, and how the leader had to face off against the enemy which turned out to be his long lost father. Collette then refers to Tenebrae as the black Sylvarant dynasty warrior.
