  • Infinite SP gain

    Have any character get to Rank 50 on Barrier Magic to get Field Barrier 3. Then, have that same character get to rank 8 on Black Magic to get Regenerate MP. When you walk around killing enemies for SP without fighting, you will regenerate the lost MP and never run out, effectively giving you an unlimited SP gain. A good area to do this trick is in the flying fortress just after Zola leaves the team and goes through the other warp. In the room just before you meet Szabo are three lasers. When set off, a flying Mecha Robo appears for each one. Each monster results in a 2 SP gain. Just run from the save point through the lasers and back to the save point. Continue running this path and saving in between when the lasers stop dropping monsters.

    When you reach the primitive cube, before you enter the ruins, outside you will find butterfly monsters. Activate Field Barrier 3. Place your character in the center of the field, and tape the Left Analog-stick Up and Right Analog-stick Right. If done correctly, you will run around killing endless spawns of these monsters for +2 SP each. This is best done with MP Regeneration. You can reach level 99 in a Shadow in less than an hour. Check regularly in case of skill obtaining, and also if the butterflies get in a perfect chasing distance. If they do this, activate the barrier again and continue. This trick is also best done with Eyepatch or Black Belt.

  • Easy experience

    Immediately after the scene where the strange voice tells your characters to swallow the light spheres (after fighting the land shark), there is a chance to gain at least three or four levels in both class rank and character level. You have the choice to escape using the Mechat machine, but do not. Instead, fight the horde of robot enemies. Note: This may take awhile, but the experience gained can really help your characters for what later in the game.

    The Underground River area on Disc 2 is a good location to level up your characters fairly easily. Go to the end of the area where you can find lots of the Kelelon things, then just keep battling them repeatedly as they will keep respawning. Note: Try using R to surround as many monsters in your radius as possible. The Underground River is also has lots of other respawning monsters.

  • Fleeing enemies keep running

    You must have the Stun Bomb and Stealth field abilities. Go towards an enemy that normally runs away upon seeing you while under the effect of Stealth (for example, Kelolons). Toss a Stun Bomb at the monster. If done correctly, after the Stun Bomb loses its effect on the monster, it will begin to flee. However, since it cannot see you because you are under the effect of Stealth, it will keep running until you become visible again.

  • Defeating Moody Dragon

    You can find the hidden Boss, Moody Dragon, while leveling up your characters in the Underground River. This Boss is found at random, so it may take some time. Try being at level 27 or above to defeat Moody Dragon. Use physical attacks, or anything except Shadowa. He has about 2,500 HP. After defeating Moody Dragon, you will get a nice reward.

  • Easy "Simultaneous Encounter, Over 10 Parties" achievement

    At the end of the Underground River area should be a location with a large number of Kelolon monsters. Use the "Fleeing enemies keep running" glitch to cause the Kelelons to keep running until they all run into the invisible wall that prevents them from falling off the edge. This may take some time as they slowly move sideways across the invisible wall. Eventually ten or more of them will get close enough for you to attack all of them at once. Make sure you keep your Stealth active the entire time or they will jump into the ground and hide, forcing you to start over again.

  • Easy "Successfully Arrive Before The Time Limit Expires" achievement

    Use the following trick to accomplish this achievement easily while defeating all unique enemies on this airship. Make sure one of your characters has field barrier. Start each by floor defeating the two or three characters that are unique, then activate your field barrier. You will not have to kill them again. Bouncing into them and instantly killing them costs no time, while a regular fight takes about thirty seconds. It should be easy to complete this level in about 40 minutes.
