These are rumors that I have heard of.
Dragon Warrior 4 (NES)
A few people have said that they all of a suddenly stopped being able
to use spells or a certain spell, they disappear from the spells list.
ANSWER? Chris Czaplocki says,
I played Dragon Warrior 4 some time ago and I could never get the
Thordain Spell to work. It said that I didn't have enough mp's, even
though I had like 225 and it only needed 15. I have no idea why.
ANSWER? Harkers says,
The answer to the Thordain spell is relatively simple. If the
person who is casting the spell has 225 mp, but there is at least one
other member of the party who does not have at least 15 mp, then you
cannot cast it. ALL memebers of the party must have at least 15 mp to
cast the spell. This means that if you have someone like Ragnar (who has
little or no mp) in your party, then you cannot cast it. Try putting
people in your party who have at least 15 mp, it should work now.
Final Fantasy 3
Get all Espers, have all characters, keep Cid alive, and have all
of the Paladin equipment, to see a different ending.
ANSWER? I have heard that you can get different endings from beating
the game with out saving all of the players and from not saving Shadow.
Shadows dreams, can you see all of them.
ANSWER George Nassar says,
Shadow's dreams appear when you go to SPECIFIC inns. If you go to a
certain inn or sleep in a certain place, your chances of seeing the
dream are 100% -- you WILL see it. However, it'll only work once per
game for each inn.
You might get a Paladin Ring from wearing the Cursed Ring for
ANSWER George Nassar says,
if you wear a Cursed ring for 255 battles, it won't turn into
a Paladin Ring because Paladin Rings don't exist. HOWEVER, it will
turn into a Hero Ring.
ANSWER? A Game Counselor at Nintendo of Americe Inc., says that one
does not exist.
ANSWER? ???? Says there is a Paladin Ring. There are at least two
American versions of the game. But only a very small number of games
have the Paladin Ring. If your version has the Hero Ring, then the
Paladin Ring isn't in it. The Hero Ring was sort of a replacement
(and much better) than the Paladin Ring (which was basically a ribbon
that taught Ultima).
Is there a cow in Final Fantasy 3?
ANSWER? George Nassar says,
the "cow" in the game is actually a sheep, I believe. When you are put
to sleep by an enemy, you will wake up if given enough time. When you do,
you see a badly drawn sheep (or cow, I suppose) appear in front of the
character that is waking up, and then he wakes up. That's the story.
There might be a way to beat Chupon.
ANSWER? Some where in a newsgroup I saw this. If you have someone with
over 7000 HP, simply equip them with Atma Weapon, Illumina, Genji
Gloves and the Offering. You're looking at 9999 damage per hit, with
eight hits, that's more than plenty. But he only gives you the
Exlier, and he is back for the next battle. In other words, it's
pointless to fight him! Although one person did 9999 damage on him
eight times, and he lived and sneezed. BTW, the Illumina is a sword,
that you can only get from betting the Ragnarok in the Colosseum or by
using the Game Genie. (Some people asked me what it is, but didn't
have an E-Mail address.)
ANSWER? ???? says, I've done it lots of times. Equip a fast character
with a Gengi Glove, Offering, Scimitar and an Atma Weapon, and hope
you get the first hit.
There might be a way to bring General Leo back to life.
ANSWER? Kevin Corrie says,
you can bring Leo back to life by winning some type of Elixer or
potion from a golden dragon on a triangle island in the northern part
of the World of Ruin (not the place where you fight the Zone Eater).
It is said that if you can do this he will join your party.
ANSWER? A2X says,
All right. I have Leo. No Game Genie, no glitch, I truly have him! I
think this has to do with me owning an early release version of FF3,
but here it is. Fight 4000 battles in the dinosaur forest after
beating the Gold Dragon in Kefka's tower. A special dragon (like the
ones on the floating continent, only gold) appears. He was incredibly
strong, but I won. I won an item called "Resurect" from him. I went to
Leo's grave, and used the item on the grave, and he appears in front
of the grave. He thanks you, and goes and talks to Terra. They finish
their little conversation that they started on the ship to Thamasa. In
the end, he saves Shadow, and this also introduces a whole new ending
occurs. All the characters settle down and start a life. Locke & Celes
marry, and there's a lot of other things. Very few have believed me
yet, but I keep trying to tell people. You must fight 4000 battles
(Maybe I have too much free time!?).
ANSWER? You can sketch a vanished Gabledegak (Zozo) and Edger should
turn into him.
There might be a way to get thousands of Econimizers and other
great stuff after a battle
A counselor from Nintendo of America says to try not to use Relm's sketch
command when you are on the Floating Continent, in the Veldt, or in the
Go to the desert South of Maranda in the world of ruin, and fight a Hoover. Have
Relm sketch it while either she or it has a status change. Vanish works best,
though I haven't had much time to test it. In any case, when you sketch, you
should see some "scramble" effects, but they shouldn't last long. If you can
move, get away. If it worked right, you should get unlimited Illumina swords,
Gradius daggers, other "best" weapons (Sky Renders, etc.), the trademark dirks
of a glitch, lots of relics, and possibly some good armor. save immediately
because when I entered Figaro Castle shortly afterward, it froze up, although
it only happened once. The character's colors when on the world map changed,
too. I found this by accident, so I'm not entirely sure about all the effects.
Sometimes if you sketch with Relm (or Gogo) the game will mess up, and you'll
get a lot of good items. I got 247 Economizers (it just said 47, but if you go to
a shop and try to sell them you can go past 99 and the one digit number after
that will have zeros in front of them.), 211 Gem Boxes, 130 Zephyr Capes, 109
Scimitars, about 10,000 dirks, 127 Sprint Shoes, and 123 Black Belts, but it
erased some items, too. If you sketch too much it may permanently mess up the
saved game, (No, you don't get a bunch of items from this.) or even erase all your
games on there leaving 3 empty slots!

Have Gau, Realm, and Locke, and some one else go to the veldt. Leap, and when Gau
returns, cast slow2, use control, and steal from him. He'll be equipped with Fenix
Down, and you'll get all the coolest items, including 2779 Dirks 149 Economizers
and Gemboxes, and 29 Tintinabars and Offerings. Cast Vanish then Doom.

While still in the World of Light, go to the Veldt. Put
Relm and Gau in your party. Have Gau leap onto any enemy.
Leave a space open for him and walk around. Attack with
everyone except Relm to kill the enemies. If Gau comes back,
wait for the first message box to go away. Then, quickly try
to sketch him before he tells you he'll travel with you.
(Not fighting with Relm should have the cursor on her command
box.) It may take a few tries to work, but eventually there
will be a glitch. Trust me, you'll know when it works. If
the game freezes and won't continue, reset and try again. If
you're taken out of the battle, check you're inventory. The
(0) Dirks are really (255), and you may have amazing amounts
of rare items. Ever wish you had more than one Gem Box? How
'bout (180) of them? Atmas? (255)! Try the glitch a few times,
it's never the same. But notice if you keep getting the same
items, you'll keep getting them with small variations unless
you change some major statistic in the game. Experiment!

In Zozo take Relm and 3 other People and cast Vanish on a Gobble Ganger
(something like that). Then draw them and you will get a lot of weapons
and armor (10% of the time it will erase the game).
Sent in by Bryan
I can honestly tell you a reliable way to get tons of awesome stuff early in the
game (when I say early I mean as soon as you have Relm). All you have to do is
1) Play the game as normal until you get the Esper that allows you to learn Vanish.
2) Have Gau learn Vanish.
3) When you get Relm in your party find an enemy that is really weak (one that even
Celes can kill in one hit no matter what).
4) Now all you have to do is arrange your characters like this (viewed from in battle
screen): Sabin on top, Celes below Sabin, Gau below Celes, and Relm below Gau.
5) Now that they are in the correct position make sure only one enemy is left, the
weakest kind you can find, and have Gau Vanish the enemy and Relm Sketch the enemy
after he has vanished.
6) Your characters will glitch out really bad but all you have to do is run away, hold L
and R buttons, and look on your items screen.
7) Now save the game as soon as possible.
8) Before you get into another battle go to a town and sell all the dirks,
otherwise the game will freeze up and you will have to reset, you should be
happy! One other thing, if you were not able to get away by running the enemy
was too strong and you will have to find a weaker enemy.. You can also do this
in the second world by having all the characters and going to the town were
you find Celes in Esper form, the one where you get attacked while walking
around, and finding a group of Gabbledegaks, kill all but one, vanish the
remaining one and sketch him, sometimes the glitch does not work due to
some of the items in your inventory but I would say about 80-90% of the time

Go to the Veldt in the World of Ruin. Make sure you have Gau and Relm in your
party. Have Gau leap, and fight some battles. When Gau comes back, make sure
Relm will be the first attacker. Before Gau starts talking to you, sketch Gau.
What will happen is a bunch of really weird stuff. One of your party members
will turn into General Leo (Not permanently), and everything will just be
messes up. When you're done with your battle, go to your items and you'll
have thousands of things, including Economizers. It should say "00", and to
equip it, just do it like you normally would. WARNING: Most of the time this
does not work. Don't be surprised if you have to reset it about 20 times before
it works. Although it's never happened to me, I wouldn't do it on a game that
you've played for a while, because it could mess it up.

I was trying to get Leo with Edgar. I sketched a Gabledegak and the game
went freaky. After I ran away I had tons of stuff, including Economizers.
Sent in by J. J. Newberry
Have a party of Relm, Sabin, and Edgar. Make sure Sabin and Edgar next to
each other. You MUST HAVE SABIN cast vanish on the enemy then have Relm
sketch it. **Save often** The game glitches and may lock up. Run or try to
fight. Depending on the enemy you can get lots of stuff. If you get a weapon
that says 0 example 0 Dirks you actually have 100 + of that item. Every glitch
that the game does not mess up on I got a bunch of dirks. Stuff I got: Dirks,
Atma Weapon, Excalibur, Economizers, Gem Box, Sprint Shoes, Fire Blade,
Auto Crossbow, and Magicite.

Go to the Triangle Island or Dinosaur Forest to have many great items. Vanish a
monster and use the "sketch"of Relm on this monster. The battle will bug, but you
can fight or run away. If you do correctly what I do, the trick will work. But
sometimes it doesn't work.
When the battle is "bug" look on your spell list and you'll find something

In my Final Fantasy 3 game, when I was at the mountain where you fight Ultros
after the esper attack on vector, I saved the game at a save point. Shortly
afterwards while fighting Adamchysts, I sketched with Relm and my game
glitched. Terra turned into General Leo, Strago turned into a yellow and green
square blob, Locke disappeared, and Relm became invisible. Some of the enemies
disappeared too. Both Strago and Terra got some unknown spells. Terra had seven
fire spells but only two worked. Strago got Hyperdrive, Tentacle, and some other
spells. Hyperdrive was really H-Bomb and all the fire spells did was burn my own
party. After the battle, the game froze whether I beat the enemies or ran away.
I was able to reproduce this glitch repeatedly since I saved it only a few minutes
before the glitch occurred but I never got anything since the game always froze.
Final Fantasy Legend 2
Double clicking or trying to move the trash can, might increase
Agility or Strength to party members.
ANSWER? A Game Counselor at NOA, says that double clicking or moving
the trash can won't do any thing, any where.
ANSWER? Artseen says,
there is a glitch in the game that eventually, after you have thrown
out a lot of stuff, you can click on the trash can and you can raise
your characters agility. But do this at your own risk, for whenever
you do this, you may loose all your mana.
ANSWER? firstname.lastname@example.org says,
the rumor about getting agility or strength up is true. It only works
for a certain amount of times. You can only do the trick right after
you beat Edo. If you go click on the trashcan it will show your people
and you can give them boosts in a certain stat. In Edo it's strength,
in other places it's different, like in the nasty dungeon world you
get agility up.
ANSWER? Shawn Huckabay says,
Once your later in the game, try to move the trash can. After that, select
the trash can twice. This may bring up a screen allowing you to select
someone on your team and increase their agility. Every time you do this,
your magi increases by one, and you can do it until your magi is 99. I have
not been able to get this to work more than once and think it is a bug and
not a built in code.
ANSWER? G. Dufore says,
After you get the magi from the Nasty Dungeon, try double clicking on the
trash can in the item list. You should have 68 magi, and if you do the trash
can will give you a boost to you agility, so much as to raise your human's
and mutant's agility to over 90. If you try this with other amounts of
Magi different effects will occur. Most of the time nothing happens, but
sometimes it boosts your abilities or give you cures and stuff like that.
For example. If you have a mutant with a mana of over 40 and then use
this trick on your party, especially on him, then skip the nasty dungeon,
and go directly to Valhalla Palace, you can get the flare book and use it
on Odin and is helpers to beat him without going through the Nasty Dungeon.
Then after you beat him you can get Dad and then go back to the Dungeon,
It makes it a lot easier inside. I have done it. It really works.
