How to attack everytime 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 attack option".
How to kill a 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 Marboro Tentacles....this item releases
If your forgot to Draw the GF`s from the earlier battles in the

Catuar Island hint:
You know that little sand island, out to the Southeast, called
Catuar Island? Make sure that when you go to him, all your characters
are junctioned with water to give you an added advantadge. Also make
sure Leviathan is level 50+ his water attack will cause 9,999HP
damage. Plus put the ability`s RECOVER & REVIVE on the character not
using Leviathan. Also make sure at the begining 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
Ultimicia. Instead go to you character options and select "Proof that
Omega Weapon Exisits". When you click on it, it will give you a recent
background info on the creature that tells you how to beat it easier
No Death at end:
Equip auto-potion to Irvine and make sure you have enough final
limit break aimo, have plenty of x-potions(no other potions). At the
end when fighting Ultimicia, 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 repeatably 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.
When fighting the first monster you meet in the fire cavern on
the first disc. Try to practice a bit before you start to fight them.
Train for a while. When you start to fight the monsters and trying to
get to Ifrit (the GF in the fire cavern) fight until you get to level
20 or 24, it will make the battle much easier.
Attacking Sorceress Ultimacia
You must first get Squall to be at level 100 and any two of the
other party member. Get your party's to be well equiped and with their
best weapon. Be sure to get Squall the lion heart which is the
strongest weapon in the whole game. Also get him to learn the
lionheart attack because it is the only way to defeat Soceress
Ultimacia. She have 4 forms to defeat but you have to fight 5 time
because she uses the GF she have before she junction herself into it.
Get at least 50 full life, 50 life, 50 curaga and 50 other magice that
dispells confusion, poisons or other harmal spells. Use Aura on Squall
alot so that he can use his lionheart which will finish her first form
off easily. Keep using Aura on Squall and attack with him and you will
soon defeat her.
This code shows every characters Limit Break.
Quistis Trepe=Blue Magic
Kiros Seagill=Blood Pain
Ward Zabac=Heavy Anchor
Seifer Almasy=Fire Cross
These weapons are the characters strongest.
Squall Leonhart=Lion Heart
Rinoa Heartilly=Shooting Star
Selphie Tilmitt=Strange Vision
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
Kill the zombie with one hit:
When you go to nagotiate with the president(disc 1) use a GF on
him in human form and when he changes use Phonix 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 fight!
Easy Limit Breaks:
Get into a battle, and wait until all characters time bars are
full. Then keep hitting CIRCLE (TRIANGLE in the Japanese version) and
eventually Squall or Zell will have use of their limits.
After reciving Ragnarok go to the bottom left of the screen.
There should be a base there if you defat the boss (Bahamut) you will
get him he will come on your side. After Bahamut go father into the
base and you will fight Altema 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
At the missle base near the begining of Disc 2 there is a way to
mess around with the missle control. At the missle 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 following:
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 Memorycard into your Playstation, go to the internal memory
card manager and save Chocobo World into the Sony Memorycard (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
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 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!
Lion Heart on Disc 1!:
You think it is impossible don't you, but you are sooo wrong. It
is very much possible to get the Lion Heart on Disc one and here is
how. Because you do not need the mag to get the weapon all you need to
do is get the needed items. First you get Adamantine from the Minotaur
card. Second you get Dragon Fangs from a T-Rexaur between levels 20
and 29. Now get 20 Elnoyle Cards and refine them in to 2 Energy
Crystals. Then refine the energy crystals into 20 pulse ammo. Now you
can get the Lion Heart on Disc 1.
Gifts from Esthar Shops:
Cloud's Shop will randomly give you a Hi-Potion during the first
visit, and an X-Potion during oyur second visit. Johnny's Shop will
randomly give you a Hi-Potion during the first visit, and a
Mega-Potion during your second visit. Karen's Shop will randomly give
you a Hi-Potion during the first visit, and a Mega-Potion during your
second visit. Cheryl's Shop will only randomly give you one item: the
Rosetta Stone. Visit Cheryl's Shop during the Lunatic Pandora event in
Esthar when you are in control of Zell.
If you missed out on the Alexander Card in the Lunar Base, you
can still win it from Piet. The escaped pod crashed in the Abadon
Plains, which is south of Tears' Point outside of Esthar's cloak. Land
on the island and search the area. You can't see the crash site, but
you'll automatically get taken there if oyu step in the right area.
Piet is sitting next to the escape pod cursing his bac luck.
Quick AP and EXP:
Toward the end of the game, you may need to do some quick level
building. If you're looking for AP there's only one place to go:
Cactuar Island. Each Cactaur you defeat is worth a whopping 20 AP. In
no time, you can learn skills worth 200 AP. If you need EXP visit
either the Island Closest to Heaven, or the Island Closest to Hell.
Both are found on either the far east or west coasts. There you'll
find only the toughest enemies in the game. During Quistis along and
leave her HP in the yellow. Then begin each battle by using her
Degenerator Limit Break. You'll quickly amass more experience than you
ever though possible. Also, be on the lookout for a mass of Draw
Points on both of these islands. They're all "unseen," but they
contain the best spells in the game and they all refill quickly.
Control Panel Secret:
You can toy around a bit with the Missile Control Panel at the
Galbadian Missile Base. Choose to go to the Equipment inspection
screen and you'll se the equipment used by the Galbadian Army. Hold
down both the Triangle and Square buttons and press up or down on the
control pad. The scene will switch to either a dancing Galbadian
Soldier or Elite Soldier. Pretty strange stuff.
You can make extra Gil with Edea's Letter. Take it to a shop and
you can sell it for 125 Gil. It isn't much, but it can help if you're
short on cash. Return to Edea's House and speak with Edea gain. She'll
scold you and then hand over another letter. you can continue to sell
her letters and get new ones to your heart's content. Granted this
isn't a great money maker, but it's kind of humorous.
Finding the Ragnarok on Disc Four:
The Ragnarok is stil around and full of people from the C.C.
Group, provided that you defeated the C.C. Group's King earlier in the
game. It's a long trek, but you can win some rare cards that oyu may
have missed throughout your journey from the C.C. Group's members. You
can also use the Ragnarok to find the Card Queen, who's hiding
somewhere on the World Map. While the journey to the Ragnarok isn't
tough, it is very long and slow. After going through the second portal
outside Ultimecia's Castle, you'll arrive in Centra's Serengetti
Plains area just a bit north of the Centra Ruins. Check the World Map
and you'll see a red dot southeast of your position. The red dot
signifies the Ragnaork.
To reach it, you need to find transportation across the ocean,
and without the Garden, you must rely on Chocobos. While on foot, head
to the northwest and rap your way around the bay to the Chocobo Forest
on the northeat tip of the Centra continent. Get a Chocobo and return
the way you came. Ride the Chocobo to the southern border until you
spot a beach. Ride across the ocean to the continent below, which will
take you very, very close to Edea's House. From Edea's House travel to
the east along the mountains. However, keep an eye out for a small
pass through the middle of the mountain range. On the other side,
you'll find the Kashkabald Deser and the Ragnarok. There's a fourth
portal near the Ragnarok. Upon entering this portal, a new portal will
appear in front of Ultimecia's Castle. Now you can travel to this
location any time you wish.
Finding the Queen of Cards on Disc Four:
After finding the Ragnarok, you can begin your hunt for the Card
Queen and explore the world. The Card Queen is hiding in the Abadon
Plains, just to the south of Esthar. You'll find her near the escape
pod crash site (the same place where you found Piet on Disc 3). Keep
in mind that there's no visible sign of the crash from the World Map.
To locate it, you must scour the southern tip of the plains until you
enter the area.
Mandy Beach: Travel to Timber and explore the beach east of the
city. You'll spot the UFO abducting a moai statue.
Winhill Bluffs: Travel to Winhill in the southern region of the
Galbadia continent and explore the area southeast of the village and
west of the rocky path where Winhill Bluffs meets Lallapalooza Canyon.
You'll spot the UFO abducting a cow.
Kashkabald Desert: Travel to Kashkabald Desert in southern Esthar
and explore the western part of the desert. You'll spot the UFO
abducting a pyramid.
Heath Peninsula: Travel to Heath Peninsula in eastern Trabia and
explore the small island east of the peninsula. You'll spot the UFO
abducting a crop circle.
After you've made all four sightings pilot the Ragnarok to
Grandidi Forest in northern Esthar and set down on the highlands just
north of Chocobo's Holy Forest. Explore the area and you'll encounter
the UFO up close. Unfortunately you must destroy that which you do not
understand. Any attack will do, the UFO won't fight back, but you may
want to take the opportunity to stock up on Demi first. When the
damage is done the crippled craft will fly off and crash in the
distance. You'll be rewarded for your heroism with an AEGIS AMULET.
If you're still curious about the extra-terrestrial visitor
you'll have to travel to Balamb to find it. Explore the area near the
crater where Balamb Garden used to rest and you'll encounter PuPu.
There are two ways to deal with the creature: if you're bona fide
blood-thirsty you can butcher the defenseless and decidedly cute
little alien for an ACCELERATOR. If atonement is on your mind you may
recall from reading Occult Fan IV the UFO was searching for Status
Full Recovery Medicine. To offer amends make sure you have the Item
ability junctioned to at least one member of your party and five
Elixirs in your inventory before you engage PuPu. At the beginning of
the battle the alien will ask for Elixir. Grant PuPu's request and the
doe-eyed Oliver Twist will ask for more. Continue giving the creature
Elixir and, when adequate health care has been delivered, PuPu will
thank you by giving you the PUPU CARD. In either scenario you may want
to take the opportunity to stock up on magic before administering
The Laguna Effect:
Depending on the actions you took while exploring the Excavation
Site (a.k.a. Lunatic Pandora's Excavation Site) as Laguna on Disc One,
you may be able to locate some useful items and Draw Points when you
explore Lunatic Pandora as Squall at the end of Disc Three. The
following covers the action taken by Laguna in the past and the result
in the present.
As Laguna: Pick up the first Old Key near the Confuse Draw Point.
Later Effect: You can now access an Ultima Draw Point hidden in a

Inside you can find a LvLuvG item.
As Laguna: Find the second Old Key at the first intersection.
Later Effect: Both boulders fall into gaps in teh floor, which
enables you to get to some of the secrets listed here. It also enables
you to reach a copy of Combat King 005.
As Laguna: Move the rock away from a tunnel wall to reveal a Cure
Later Effect: Searching the spot where the Draw Point once was,
reveals a hidden Spd-J Scroll
There are seven Chocobo Forests in the world and there are
puzzles in six of them. As you attempt to solve each puzzle, you may
want to talk to Chocoboy and buy a hint for 100 Gil. You'll also have
the option to purchase Gysahl Greens at 600 Gil apiece or ask a
question for 10 Gil. When you've successfully summoned your first
Chocobo, talk to Chocoboy before you catch her and he'll let it slip
there may be something you haven't found yet. Use the ChocoSonar to
find a secret hiding place. Sound the ChocoZiner and the Chocobo will
dig in that location and reward you for mastering the forest. Talk to
Chocoboy and he'll tell you the items are a sign of affection for
those the Chocobos of that forest regard as one of their own. Each
time your return, you'll find the Chocobo waiting for you in the open.
To celebrate your first catch, Chocoboy will give you BOKO as a
present. In the future, you'll be able to summon Boko during battle
using Gysahl Greens and the Chicobo will attack your enemies.
Chocobo World is a self-contained game designed for use with the
PocketStation. Save your game to a PocketStation unit and Boko can
take part in a journey of its very own. Boko will grow in strength as
it gains experience and can find exclusive Chocobo World items you can
bring back into "FINAL FANTASY VIII". Unfortunately, as the
PocketStation is unavailable to PlayStation owners in the US, Chocobo
World can only be enjoyed by users of the PC version, where it's
included as a stand-alone application.

pinpoint its exact location to bring it down. Use the ChocoSonar to
explore the area just to the left of and behind Chocoboy. Stand in the
light patch of grass so that your feet appear to be just higher than
Chocoboy's right hand. When you find it, use the ChocoZiner to summon
the solo Chicobo and catch it to make the mother appear. Finding the

clearing, (4) on the near side of the rock at the far side of the
clearing, (5) to the left of the rock on the right side of the
clearing, and (6) in the center of the clearing. Begin by sounding the
ChocoZiner at [1 or 2 THEN 3] or [3 or 5 THEN 1 or 2] to get two
Chicobos on the left side of the clearing. Sound at [4 THEN 5] to get
the remaining two 'outer' Chicobos to fall. Sound at  to send them
all into the trees and a single Chicobo will drop to the center of the

reached by Chocobo. Catch a Chocobo in the Roaming Forest near Trabia
Garden, ride it southeast across Bika Snowfield to Heath Peninsula,
and head south across the shallows until you arrive at the beach on
the west coast of Grandidi Forest in Esthar. Make your way through the
narrow valley and head northeast through the forest to find it (be
careful, it's very easy to get lost). Visit this forest when you've
mastered all six Chocobo Forests and the mother Chocobos will treat
you to a celebratory dance. After the ritual, talk to the Chicobo and
it'll give you the CHICOBO CARD. On your way out, talk to Chocoboy and
ask for one last 'Help Me'. The master Chocobo catcher will summon a
Chocobo for you to ride out of the forest and bid you a permanent
farewell. (NOTE: From this point forward, you'll need to return here
if you want Gysahl Greens. Each time you enter the Holy Forest you can
talk to the Chicobo and it'll give you one for 600 Gil.)
