Every Dog has his Day
from Travis Henry (
Every dog must have his day, but this trick gives you the Day of the Dogs. To turn every member of your current fighting group into Jogurt (the dog; not the dairy product), do the following:

  1. Get Jogurt (the dog) to join your team.
  2. Make him kill someone. When you do this Jogurt will receive a ring.
  3. Equip whomever you want to be a dog with the ring.
  4. Transfer the ring to the next person to be a dog.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you have everyone in your group is a dog.
  6. Enter a battle to let slip the dogs of war.

Note: This trick lasts for one battle.

Get Gong before Battle #1
from John Healy (
In order to get Gong before the first battle, you wave to "push" the guy who lost his wagon over to the gate so as to block the guards' movements'. Basically, this means you have to block his way away from the gate, and hope he will walk toward it. Eventually, will get three tiles away from the guards. If you walk forward more the guards will block you, so wait until he decides to get in their path before proceeding. Once outside, you can go to the little house near the site of battle #1 to get Gong. Also, if you try to fight battle #1, Tao and the others will speak but only You and Gong will be present! Try to win this one!

Name Every Character
Start a new game and name your character. After you are done highlight "End" and hold A + B + C on Controller Two, then press Start. On Controller One, press A + C + Start. A new character will appear. Name the character and another one will appear, etc. This will continue until you have named every character in the game.

Chirrup Sandals
from RunefaustKane (
This is a neat item to use in the game. When you are in Galam jail, search the table of the room you wake up in. Then, give the Chirrup Sandals to someone and equip them. Go into battle, and the character with the sandals will "squeek" when walking! It is said that these sandals also make someone happy (making defense drop), but this is unconfirmed.

When the SEGA logo appears, quickly press Up, Down, Up, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Up, Right, Down, Left, Up, B. You'll hear a short tune if you entered it correctly. Now hold Start and skip through the witch's opening menus. Continue holding Start and choose to begin or continue a game. The witch should now enter you in Configuration mode. Now you can switch on turbo speed, auto battle, control your enemies, or even complete the game!

Difficulty Select
For a harder game, use the Configuration code to complete the game, then reset and choose to begin a new game. After you name your character, you're given the option to change the game difficulty. Choose from Normal, Hard, Super or Ouch!

Final Battle
from Mark McDermott
After you finish the game, a blue box with "The End" will appear. Let the game site for at least 5 minutes. Eventually the display will change to "and more...?" Press A, B, or C and you'll be sent to a final battle against all the bosses. Good luck!
