I. INTRODUCTION                                                 [DFInt]
=======================================================================

Dissidia: Final Fantasy is a fighting game that features heroes and
villains from the first twelve main series installments. While it's
basically nothing more than fanservice for Final Fantasy enthusiasts,
it's a pretty decent game to occupy yourself with if you're not looking
for huge amounts of depth, and it's really pretty, too.

I noticed a lack of story mode guides for the game, so here's mine.
Hope it helps people get through the game easier. This guide operates
on the assumption that you, the reader, are fluent enough in Japanese
to know your way around the game, and thus there is not Shift-JIS in
this guide, it's all just directly translated.

This is probably my largest undertaking as far as guides go, so any
feedback and corrections are welcome.

II. CONTROLS AND BATTLE SYSTEM                                  [DFCon]
=======================================================================

Dissidia might as well be an Action RPG. You have a leveling system, an
equipment and ability system, and an accessory system, too. In battle,
you have lots to keep track of.

ACCESSORY MODIFIER: At the top left corner of the screen, it shows
                    the effects your accessories are currently granting
                    your fighter.

SUMMON: The red crystal above your HP gauge is a summon crystal. If it
        is there it means you can use your summon.

BRAVE: The large number above your HP meter is your BRAVE. Brave is
       basically your attack power in battle. You can use lots of
       effects such as summons to power up yours or decrease your
       opponent's, and greater brave means greater attack power.

HP: The meter at the bottom left of the screen and small numbers below
    it represent your life. For every 1000 HP you have there is a
    crystal below your life bar.

EX GAUGE: As you fight you can collect EX cores in order to boost your
          EX Gauge. When it reaches max you can activate it to go into
          EX Mode, which grants you bonuses, passive abilities, and the
          ability to use your EX Burst attack.

MAP BRAVE - At the lower center of the screen is the Map Brave. This is
            added to your own brave if you Brave Break your opponent
            (reduce his or her Brave to 0).

CONTROLS: L - Lock On
          R - Guard
          O - Brave Attack
          X - Jump
          Square - HP Attack
          Triangle - Wall/Rail movement
          Analog - Movement
          Directional Pad - Camera Controls

IV. STORY MODE                                                  [DFStM]
=======================================================================

Story Mode stages put you on a chess board that can be up to 8 x 5
spaces in area. Within each stage are 'pieces' that the player can
interact with. However, moving requires DP. Every movement made
requires the player to expend 1 DP until the homebase is reset, whether
by player choice or by action. At this time, another DP is required
to be expended to move again. DP can be regained by meeting specific
requirements during certain battles. At the end of each stage, you're
rewarded story points based on the DP remaining, number of contacts
made, and HP remaining. Story Points are exchanged at the end of a
chapter in order to gain benefits for subsequent replays of that
specific chapter.

                 types. Blue chests have rare items, brown chests have
                 normal items, and red chests are already opened brown
                 chests found in replays of chapters, and carry PP.

Summon Crystal - Bestows a unique summoning monster upon the player.

Enemy - Normal enemies, easily defeated. Piece is a helmet.

Midboss - Harder than normal enemies, piece is a helmet with crossed
          swords.

Boss - Incredibly difficult. Probably can't be beaten on your first
       run through the chapters. Appears as a helmet with a suit of
       armor running below it.

Rare Boss - Super hard enemies that give treasure and more upon being
            defeated. Looks like boss pieces with swords behind them.

Gold - These enemies are gold colored normal enemies. They are of a
       similar difficulty, but have extremely low HP and sometimes
       Brave. Be wary, because these enemies have something else up
       their sleeves...

Villain Fight - These pieces look like giant black towers, and they
                signal a fight with a major character in the game.

Ambush - A red tinted enemy piece will immediately engage you in
         combat if you move beside it, hence ambush.

? - In some stages (and Onion Knight's scenario), pieces are blocked
    from view by ? spaces. Use Sightro to break through the illusion.

Barriers - These block off paths to treasures, summons, and sometimes
           the goal. Defeat the appropriate enemies to unlock them.

Gold barriers - Blocks off rare treasures and Summons. Replay the
                scenarios after gaining the SP bonus "Open new areas"

Potion - Recovers HP to 100%

Ether - Recharges your skills. Might change recharged skills.

--------------------
HOW TO USE THE GUIDE
--------------------

There is no real 'correct' path to play the game. Some people may want
to get all the treasure they can, while others just want to blitzkreig
the maps. Either way, these maps show everything you can expect to see
during the course of the main game. I've even written in enemy stats so
you can see what you're getting into, and dodge some of the nastier
baddies if you need to. The stats go in the following order:
(HP/CP/BRV/ATK/DEF/LCK). So (1/341/1183/42/42/11) means an enemy has
1 HP, 341 CP, 1183 Brave, 42 Attack, 42 Defense, and 11 Luck.

Villain Fights are mostly story battles, and as such are treated as
major battles; I've listed my tactics for beating these enemies but
they are by no means foolproof. I've died A LOT over the course of my
playthrough of the game, so your mileage may vary according to your
playstyle.

|This is the tutorial level, so this won't be too hard. This battle is|
|against a false version of Garland, and he's pretty easy. He'll just |
|stand there for most of the battle and when he does attack it's      |
|rather slow. You should be able to take him out easily.              |

4.2 DESTINY ODYSSEY I: WARRIOR OF LIGHT                         [DFD01]
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Difficulty level: *****

The Warrior of Light's scenario is the most difficult out of the first
ten stories, so you want to be intimately familiar with the game's
mechanics and intricacies before you tackle it. Its difficulty doesn't
lie in the normal enemy encounters - which, overall, are actually
pretty easy. It's main challenge is in the sheer number of villain
fights you get into in order to finish the scenario.

|VILLAIN FIGHT: GARLAND | 1731/336/124/24/17/13|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------
|Garland has an attack he really likes to use. He'll dash forward,    |
|and then slash upward, flinging you into the air, and then lead into |
|another combo. The weakness of this attack is that it's incredibly   |
|easy to dodge by just moving to the left or right a little bit as it |
|starts up, since its startup can easily be seen. Do so, and while he |
|is still in the animation of his attack, strike at him with your own |
|combo. If a EX core forms, grab it ASAP so Garland won't be able to. |
|Since the Warrior of Light's EX Burst is easy to master, you can take|
|out a huge chunk of Garland's HP by using it.                        |

|Sephiroth is tough as hell. He'll dash forward and hit you like      |
|Garland did, but his slashes are much faster, and there's more of    |

|and keep moving to avoid his attack. His slashing attack has a large |

Firion's scenario is not too difficult, but his villain fighs can
still be a challenge if you're ill prepared. While Jecht isn't too bad,
despite being powerful, it's the final villain fight with The Emperor
that you have to worry about since he'll bombard you with incredibly
powerful attacks.

|The Emperor is not good at close range combat, and thankfully for you|
|Firion is. The Emperor will shoot flare balls at you as well as shoot|
|magic arrows. Both will home in on you; flare wis very slow, and you |
|can dodge it easily. The arrows however, are a different story. They |
|are fast, and there are lots of them. Try to run around and put a    |
|wall between you and them. If you see The Emperor charging an attack,|
|run in and hit him out of it, otherwise he'll summon a meteor that'll|
|devastate you. Since The Emperor is relatively slow compared to you, |

Difficulty: ****

You'll be surprised to find that Onion Knight's scenario is actually
not exceedingly difficult. However, his scenario poses one problem:
every stage has a huge number of ? blocks hiding enemies and treasure
chests! You have to activate them in order to see what they are hiding
and for all you know it could be a boss or something equally bad.
Fortunately, though, you'll know what to expect now that you have this
guide...

|---------------------------------------------------------------------
|Terra begins the fight in EX Form, and will stay in that for for a   |
|large part of the fight. So, it's best to keep your distance. She    |
|has a nasty slew of spells that are area of effect, and can thus hit |
|you multiple times - if they connect. The problem is, they revolve   |
|around her, so you won't be hit if you're distant. Wait for her to   |
|initiate one of her area of effect spells such as tornado, then while|
|it spins around harmlessly, slowly go towards her. As the attack     |
|finishes, run in and hit her with a combo. Try to get an EX Burst as |
|soon as possible so you can hit her with a powerful attack.          |

|Cloud of Darkness is annoying as hell to fight because, like any good|
|boss, she'll be guarding your attacks constantly. As such it's a good|
|idea to only initiate an attack when you think you have a good chance|
|of connecting, since you'll be vulnerable if the enemy guards your   |
|attack. If an EX item appears, grab it immediately to prevent Cloud  |
|of Darkness from getting it - she'll kick the snot out of you if she |
|manages to use her EX Burst.                                         |

Difficulty: *

Cecil's a good protagonist to start with. He has a slightly steep
learning curve because he is essentially two characters in one:
Paladin and Dark Knight, each with a distinct play style. Luckily his
scenario is rather easy so it can ease you into his play style.

|VILLAIN FIGHT: EXDEATH | 1792/356/141/20/20/13|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------
|Exdeath can be a pain in the ass with his spells, but he has one     |
|fatal weakness: his spells are slow to start and slow to finish. He  |
|also mostly uses spells that surround him when you come in close; use|
|this to your advantage. Goad him into using an area-of-effect ability|
|then run off as he executes it. It'll miss you, and rush in as it    |
|ends, pummeling him with your Paladin form. You don't want to use    |
|your Dark Knight form on him, as it's too slow to take advantage of  |
|his slow speed. The bait, run, and hit tactic might take a while, but|
|you should be able to get through the fight with barely a scratch    |
|using this method.                                                   |

|VILLAIN FIGHT: GOLBEZ | 2357/343/214/30/26/16|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------
|Much like Exdeath, Golbez uses area of effect spells that revolve    |
|around him if you get to close, so you can use the same tactics as   |
|you did with Exdeath. Golbez's abilities have a wider range, though, |
|so be quick when retreating. Again, use Cecil's Paladin form for this|
|battle, and grab any EX cores that might appear before Golbez can get|
|to them, because in EX Mode, Golbez deals damage like a beast, and   |
|his EX Burst can kill you easily. Other than that, though, Golbez    |
|isn't too hard as long as you stay away from his attacks.            |

Ahhh, poor Bartz. So bland a character that he has to steal from other

|Gravity, and some will home on you, but they're almost always slow   |
|and easily dodged, so it should be easy to hit him as he's attacking |
|and then running away, since his animations are really long.         |

Terra sure got the short end of the stick. Her scenario is brutal and
she is difficult to learn. However, once you learn her fighting style
she becomes incredibly powerful and effective against the enemies you
face. Her magic is incredibly powerful, since she is an esper, so you
want to learn her timing if you want to perform well.

|VILLAIN FIGHT: KEFKA | 3450/366/283/36/28/18|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------
|Kefka will use similar attacks as the other magic using bosses, such |
|as the tried and true 'magic arrow' attack. Outside of that, though, |
|his attacks are easy to dodge, and you can easily hit him during his |
|recovery times. He's most dangerous and can do lots of damage when he|
|is in EX Mode, so grab any EX Cores that appear and don't let him get|
|to EX Mode. Conversely, you can pile on the damage when you're in EX |
|Mode, so make use of your abilities to the fullest. Also, Kefka moves|
|incredibly slowly, so use that to your advantage as well.            |

4.8 DESTINY ODYSSEY VII: CLOUD STRIFE                           [DFD07]
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Difficulty: *

Probably the first character most people will play as, luckily, he is
easy to pick up and his scenario is easy sauce. Pick his scenario
first to get a feel for the game, its controls, and its battle system.
Cloud's an easy character to use, so his scenario is a good
introduction to the rest of the game.

|VILLAIN FIGHT: SEPHIROTH | 2095/343/196/27/24/16|

|Sephiroth is FAST. As a result you can't really dodge his attacks. He|
|attacks using quick as hell sword strikes and has no real long range |
|game. Unfortunately, Cloud is the same so you can't really pelt the  |
|guy with any long range attacks. So to win, you'll have to master the|
|timing for Sephiroth's attacks so you can guard against them. Once   |
|you have guarded against them, strike against him. Also, if Sephiroth|
|gets EX Mode (God forbid), stay as far away from him as possible     |
|while remaining close enough that you can run in and hit him in a    |
|respectable time frame, as in EX Mode he can charge an attack that   |
|can do huge damage. If you see him charging, ATTACK HIM, since his   |
|attack his unblockable and undodgeable. Keep guarding his attacks and|
|counterattacking, and you'll be able to beat him.                    |

4.9 DESTINY ODYSSEY VIII: SQUALL LEONHART                       [DFD08]
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Difficulty: ***

Squall has an interesting scenario, due to the fact that his stages
begin incredibly barren, with a pitiful number of enemies and items,
but as the player opens chests or fights enemies, more and more appear
in other places. You can't just skip them either because all of the
goals have a barrier blocking the way, and if you want to unlock it
you'll need to defeat the proper enemy. However, it won't even appear
unless you defeat the enemies that come before it. If you want the
quickest way through each stage, just read through the individual
stages so you can know which enemies to fight and which not to.

4.10 DESTINY ODYSSEY IX: ZIDANE TRIBAL                          [DFD09]
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Difficulty: ***

Now we reach my personal favorite character.

Zidane's scenario isn't hard; he has some difficult match ups (in
particular Garland), but for the most part his story mode doesn't
do anything really weird like Squall's or Onion Knight's does, nor
is it incredibly combat intensive like Warrior of Light's. As far as
difficulty goes, Zidane's story is middle of the road.

|---------------------------------------------------------------------
|Kuja uses a variety of magic attacks. His short range attacks are    |

|mid range attacks can be devastating if you are caught in them, as   |
|they can link into larger attacks that'll decimate your Brave and HP.|
|Play keep away with him and go after any EX Cores you see. When you  |

4.11 DESTINY ODYSSEY X: TIDUS                                   [DFD09]
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Difficulty: **

Tidus' campaign is straightforward. There are no enemies that suddenly
appear, it's mainly just a whole bunch of enemies between you and the
goal. They're mostly pushovers anyway. Sure, maybe one or two will
give you problems (especially the boss fights), but for the most part,
Tidus has smooth sailing for his scenario.

|The Emperor will throw out energy orbs that act as mines; if you get |
|close to them, they will explode. He also shoots magic arrows and    |
|fireballs at you, and has an attack where he brings a meteor down on |
|you. However, the last attack requires a large amount of time to     |
|charge so you can hit him while he's charging. Do so quickly, as the |
|attack cannot be dodged, or blocked. Be careful, as Tidus' attacks   |
|take a while before they begin executing.                            |

|VILLAIN FIGHT: JECHT | 2095/344/251/38/26/16|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------
|Jecht has a similar fighting style to Tidus, appropriately. He's an  |
|incredible powerhouse. He can dash forward with a series of sword    |
|slashes, slam into you, throw a meteor down in front of him, and more|
|attacks that aren't worth noting. These attacks all have a rather    |
|long startup time, so if you can see them coming you can hit him out |
|of all of them. Don't try it when he has the meteor in his hands,    |
|though, you'll just get yourself sucked into his attack. Mostly, his |
|attacks all follow a straight line path, so you can easily jump over |
|most of his attacks. You can try getting in a few hits as he finishes|
|but be warned that his recovery time is deceptively quick.           |

4.11 SHADE IMPULSE: CHAPTER I                                   [DFSI1]
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Difficulty: ******

Once you finish the Prologue and the first 10 Destiny Odyssey chapters,
you'll now tackle the final battle against Chaos himself. The Shade
Impulse scenario consists of four chapters and are quite difficult, so
make sure you are prepared. The upside is that you can choose from any
of the ten hero characters, so you can use whoever you're best at, or
your strongest character. Each boss fight tactic will change according
to the character you're using, but they all use the same attacks, and
are much the same as they were in the Destiny Odysseys. The only real
newcomer is the final boss, but we'll get to him in time.

Also, the stages take elements from each of the Destiny Odysseys. While
one stage may have question blocks hiding enemies and items, the stage
immediately following may have the suddenly appearing enemies found in
Squall's stages. Each stage is also a veritable gauntlet of powerful
enemies and sometimes villain fights, so make good use of your map
skills.

 _______________________________________________
|THE FINAL BATTLE: CHAOS | 4948/387/549/95/97/34|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------
|Now this doesn't seem very fair, does it? Chaos has absolutely       |
|brutal stats, and to boot, you have to fight him THREE times in order|
|to put him down. He has a huge number of attacks at his disposal, all|
|of which can do big amounts of damage to you. Even worse, you have   |
|very little space to dodge all of them! here's the most effective    |
|strategies that got me through the fight.                            |
|                                                                     |
|BRAVE ATTACKS                                                        |
|                                                                     |
|Claw attack: A three part slashing attack. Can be guarded easily.    |
|Fireball: Shoots a fireball at you. Travels in a straight line.      |
|Flame Pillar: Fires a flaming pillar that travels towards you. Easily|
|              dodged due to traveling straight.                      |
|Dropkick: Chaos will jump and come down in an area attack. You can   |
|          easily predict this, and get out of the way, then counter. |
|Triple strike: A quick three-strike attack. Try staying in the air to|
|               effectively dodge it.                                 |
|Dragonfire: Flame dragons will rise from beneath you. It can be      |
|            predicted easily. Right after you dodge the thirs one,   |
|            use the chance to counterattack.                         |
|Flame Claw: Similar to the claw attack. Only used in the third part. |
|                                                                     |
|HP ATTACKS                                                           |
|                                                                     |
|Soul of Oblivion: Chaos will shoot fire from his mouth. Has a high   |
|                  startup time. Use this chance to attack.           |
|Judgement: In order to dodge this attack, you'll want to stand in    |
|           place while the flame pillars surround you, then as soon  |
|           as they disappear, run from the effect area. Repeat three |
|           times.                                                    |
|Demon's Dance: Chaos will vanish. During this time, keep dodging side|
|               to side to avoid his attacks.                         |
|Sin Breaker: Chaos will suck you in as flame pillars surround him.   |
|             Just run opposite to him to avoid damage.               |
|Crimson Fire: He'll explode, then shoot fireballs at you. Jump to    |
|              avoid explosion, guard the small fireballs, dodge the  |
|              large ones.                                            |
|Ultimate Combo: Used in EX Mode. He'll take a giant sword and attack.|
|                Jump to avoid the horizontal slash, dodge to the side|
|                to avoid the vertical slash.                         |
|Illusion's End: EX Burst Attack, though it is dodgeable. You'll be   |
|                able to see its area of effect before it strikes. Run|
|                to the unaffected areas to dodge it.                 |
|                                                                     |
|As if this wasn't enough, Chaos will start using the Shinryu summon  |
|in the second part of the fight. This will wither bolster his Brave  |
|by a random amount (1.5/2/3), lock his Brave value, or switch your   |
|Brave with his. This can be IMMENSELY annoying, and can really turn  |
|the tables on you if you're hit with it. Try hitting him with your   |
|own summon (I found Leviathan to be effective) to counter his summon |
|effect. This battle is excruciatingly hard, but with enough skill and|
|luck, you'll be able to take Chaos down.                             |
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------

After Chaos goes down, the heroes say their goodbyes and return to
their respective worlds. But, as Firion says, another dream begins now!
