Easy way to defeat ozma:
my way is very easy you even don't need to get your character's level very hight lv 60,70 or even 50 is good enough.
Before the match:
if you want to defeat Ozma you need Steiner,Zidane,Freya and Quina in your party members, you have to get ultima weapon for Zidane, there is no need for any excalibur for steiner because ragnarok is enough either, equip demon's mail on both of Steiner and Freya,demon's vest for zidane and pumice piece for quina, make shure every body have got auto life clear headed,antibody,bright eyes equiped in there ability,and the match will be easier if you equip bandit,mug,master thief on Zidanes ability either.
In the match:
keep stealing by Zidane untle you take every thing Ozma have then keep using Thievery, Freya use Dragon's crest, Steiner use shock and quina use Mighty Guard and auto life for every one dies,if ozma use dreaded Curse let Quina use his Angel's snack. keep using Zidans thievery,Freyas Dragon's crest,Steiners shock and keep giving your charactars auto life if it has gone by Quinas auto life and if nobody need auto life or Mighty Guard use frog drop, blieve me you won't need alot of time to defat Ozma by thes way.

PS1 | Submitted by FFIX_ManiacOzma : FFIX's Omega Weapon
message: Think the final boss, Necron is a push over??? Wait till you have a taste of Ozma, the most powerful creature in FFIX. You may have to complete some side quests first. First, you have a gold chocobo to have access to Chocobo's Air Garden. Go there and ride Choco to the back islet. When you examine the eidolon grave, Mene warns you about something dangerous there and you get a few chances to back out. So fight it when you're ready. You may need the Ultima weapon and Ragnarok. Don't forget to equip Antibody and Clear-Headed and armour that protects Shadow damage. Ozma is weak against wind an holy. Lastly, this boss got 4 great items to steal. I'm not going to spoil the fun but I tell you they're very rare and worth the few turns spending to steal.

After returning to Gaia from Terra, purchase the Doga's artifact and Une's mirror from the auction in Treno. Go to Black Mage Village and speak to the Black Mage standing in front of the phonograph inside the inn. This causes the music to change to FFIII. This special music will continue till you leave the village.
PS1 | Submitted by GamesRadarHow to beat Ozma&
All experienced FF9 players have surely found Ozma, FF9`s Weapon, an incredible strong enemy who is almost unbeatable. HeÃ½s located at a island on the back of ChocoboÃ½s air garden. You just have to walk to the pile of stones that are on the island. Examine it and you will be offered to fight it. But you must equip all your characters to their fullest first to kill it. When I killed Ozma, I had in my party: Zidane, Vivi, Quina and Freya. I will show below all things my party had equipped, levels and abilities.
Zidane: Level 88
Weapon: Ultima weapon.
Headgear: Green Beret
Wrist: Power wrist
Armour: Ninja Gear (To absorb Shadow Elemental)
Accesories: Power belt
Note: You can of course change some of ZidaneÃ½s equips because they are there to increase strength when Dyne abilities is used.
Learn all ZidaneÃ½s skills and abilities (Icreases chance to withstand OzmaÃ½s attacks)
Equip these abilities:
Note: Be sure to have the three last ones equipped to minimize the effect of OzmaÃ½s Curse spell.
Vivi: Level 81.
Weapon: Mace of Zeus.
Head gear: Holy Mitre.
Wrist: Magic Armlet.
Armour: Robe of Lords.
Accessories: Pumice piece.
Note: Make sure that Vivi has all spells and all abilities.
Quina: Level 82
Weapon: Gastro Fork.
Head gear: Holy Mitre.
Wrist: Magic armlet.
Armour: Robe of Lords.
Accesories: Pumice piece.
Note: Be sure that Quina can all Blue magic attacks.
Freya: Level 82
Weapon: DragonÃ½s hair.
Head gear: Kaiser helm.
Wrist: Venetia shield.
Armour: DemonÃ½s mail.
Accessories: Protect ring.
Note: Be sure that Freya has all attacks an d abilities.
Before you fight Ozma you must make all characters (especially ZidaneÃ½s) Trance gauge to itÃ½s fullest without making the characters go into Trance. ThatÃ½s important because otherwise Zidane wouldnÃ½t be able to attack Ozma (They donÃ½t reach). When Zidane then goes into Trance, use Solution 9 on Ozma.
And when fighting Ozma, you should start the fight by using QuinaÃ½s Mighty Guard to improve defense. Attack with ZidaneÃ½s Solution 9 and with FreyaÃ½s DragonÃ½s crest. Vivi should cast Flare and sometimes be in hold to revive a fallen caracter. And when Ozma uses the dreaded Curse spell, be fast with Quina to cast AngelÃ½s snack to remove mini. If Quina should habe nothing to do, use the spell Frog drop. And if ZidaneÃ½s Trance should weare of, use his skill Thievery. Repeat these attacks and remember to revive, you will soon kill Ozma. IÃ½ve heard that he only has about 55000 in Hp. I wonÃ½t soil the fun knowing what you will receive defeating him. That I will send in soon =)...

PS1 | Submitted by FFIX_ManiacRenaming Characters
Tired of that stupid name, Zidane??? Don't press that reset button because there is an easier way. You can obtain a card called, Namingway Card, from Mario during the card tournament in Treno or inside Kuja's room during the sequence in the Desert Palace. Take the card to Daguerreo (South-West of wind shrine where there a bridge leading into a cave in the mountains) and talk to the man roaming the library on the mid level. He will ask to see the card and then be inspired to raname your characters for you.
PS1 | Submitted by MonkeyboyMorrids coffee
The three coffees for Morrid are in these locations:
MOCCHA COFFEE:Next to the restorative spring in South Gate where you see the Tantalus Crew in an ATE
KIRMAN COFFEE:In Eiko's kitchen, Madain Sari
BURMAN COFFEE:In the card tournament section,go to Dali. Search the desk in the mayors house until the kid says 'zzz'. Then search the stove for the 'Mayors Key'. Use this on the door in the windmill and search the chest twice for some gil and the coffee.
Take the coffee to Morrid before you go to Terra and the 'Mini Prima-Vista' will turn up in the Tantalus hideout in Lindblum. It will raise your treasure hunter rank. You can find out your rank by talking to the 4-armed man in Daguerreo.When you get to rank S he will give you the 'Rank S award' key item.

Steiner's excalibur 2:
Just get to the terrace in memoria in 12 hours(from the beginning of the game) and search the platform for excalibur 2!
Go to Treno and auction for the magical fingertip. Then, go to Daguerreo and talk to the old man on the highest level of the library(near the counter which offers rest). He will tell you his story then handing you the Excalibur.
Eiko's best flute:
In memoria, get to the place where a memory of Zidane's shows Alexandria being destroyed. Head towards that direction of the castle. Then search the sides of the path. This will allow you to find the flute.
Zidane's Ultima weapon:
This I'm not sure. Anyhow, play the chocobo's game first. After this use dead pepper on where shimmering island used to be. You should be able to get the ultima weapon.

PS1 | Submitted by FFIX_ManiacFrog Catching
Running out of frogs to catch??? The trick is to leave a male and a female frog in the pond. They will then reproduce to have more frogs for you to catch. By leaving the gold grog with the male and female frog, reproduction is faster. Also when you catch 99 frogs, Quale will challenge you to a battle.
