Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles Hints
GameCube | Submitted by The Weapon MakerGetting Money To Make Weapons
Go to River Belle and collect all the stuff dropped by an enemy (including the weapon scrolls and orbs for easier defeating enemies) then go to Mushroom Forest and do the same thing. Then go to Marr's Pass and sell everything except scrolls. From The mushroom place you should have obtained iron + Scrolls from River Belle. Go to blacksmith to right. Use the money from selling stuff to make weapons. Bravo! with new weapons it's easier to get stuff to sell to buy more weapons.
GameCube | Submitted by SkyLast Area In Final Dungeon
Once you have obtained the hidden element from the Lynari desert go past the Fields of Fum an into the Rebena Plains. Keep following the caravan trail until you reach a Miasma stream that will have no element but rather a question mark. Enter and pass through this to end up in the area called The Abyss. In this area there is only one town and a dungeon. The town is of no real use the first time you arrive there so just enter and leave it. Head out to the end of the trail and enter the dungeon called "Mount Vellenge". Even with substantial upgrades this dungeon is not easy. A cure ring will definitely help here. Most enemies will take a good chunk of your health so stay on top of your heart count,also bring as many Phoenix Down as you can reasonably carry(about 10 or so should do the job.) Find your way down to the last boss and watch it all come together at the end when you beat him....watch out though...another boss awaist after the first....and Raem is no pushover. Enjoy the fight and the reward that follows.
GameCube | Submitted by Damon Hillmanhow to Fix the Dry River
In the 4th year the river will be dried up. Go to veo lu sluice (you will need the spell of Life to do this). You will see that the water in the pits are gone. You will also see the plants that are a part of the pits. They have withered for some reason and you have to bring them back alive. All you have to do is use the life spell once on them and they will be back to life bring them all back to life for the river to start running again. There, Problem Solved!
GameCube | Submitted by RavenkikoEasy Pheonix Plumes/Down
For easy Plumes (brings you back to life) go to The Mushroom Forest the 2nd+ time you beat it (if you beat it in year one come back anywhere from year 3 on) and turn right, beat that monster (has like a whip on it's head and hops around) for a Plume, come back as many times as you want for another Plume!

GameCube | Submitted by CBMAll Items-Easier
This isn't exactly a cheat but a good hint. When creating your character you can alter the job your family specializes in. By getting further in the game, you get more rare items according to your job. In order to get all the rare items easily all you have to do is make eight files. Make each of the files have different jobs and beat the game with all of them. Then you should have every rare item and can trade them to one file to pump him/her up!

Go behind the big crystal in the main city, it will say "examine". Press "A". You'll enter in a moogle house. Talk to him and you'll have stamp.
GameCube | Submitted by ShiningHarkSingle Player Spell Fusion
In single player mode, you can combine spells like Blizzard and Blizzard and get Blizzara, thats easy. To fuse farther, in battle when Mog says "Hang in there, Kupo" immediatly push X (so he drops the chalice) and pull up a spell and move the target to your enemy. You'll notice another target following yours, thats Mog. Practice and time it right to produce major magic spells!(You can also choose what spell Mog is likely to cast by painting him in the Moogle Dens. Red=Fire Green=Thunder Blue=Blizzard)
GameCube | Submitted by GamesRadarBest place to find mytheral

GameCube | Submitted by KretzBeat Armstrong
It takes a village to raise a good boss, and Tida's big boy seems to made of ruins and mold. Holy and Fire based spells work best against him. Thunder spells won't touch him. If you exploited Toda's slimy spores for Fire Migicite, you'll have a Firaga at your command. Use it to strong arm Armstrong. ( With a Selkie, you can try using Firaga, I didn't have it, but i doubt it'll do as much as a focus attack. If you don't have Firaga, just use focus attacks. When the Skull Mages appear defeat them using focus attacks. Armstrong is a pushover if you stick to this strategy, but make sure you watch out when he gets close to you, if he starts to emit a purple haze run. It'll cast slow on you and you'll have a hard time dodging his attacks.)
GameCube | Submitted by GamesRadarVery Secret Mog Stamp.

GameCube | Submitted by GamesRadarHow to beat Iron Giant
Once you start the battle kill the little wizard things first. Then go after the giant when he swings his sword run around him and use a focus attack. His sword will break and he will use a stronger attack. When he jumps in the air run around him and use a combo attack (if you use a spell or focus attack he'll just attack). He will grab another sword but just repeat this process until he dies.

GameCube | Submitted by Yoseph (Cloud) 13Jegon Dried?
If the Jegon River is dried, then you might want to find a way to get the water flowing again. If you have the Unknown element then you don't have to worry about Miasma Streams. Anyways, head north toward Shella. Then head to Veo Lu Sluice. If you already talked to the guy in the north end of Shella, then you're already set. If you didn't, he'll tell you to use life on these huge plants with a bud that hasn't bloomed yet. make sure you use life on every one of those and all you have to do is leave. The Jegon River should now be filled up. If you have the radar you might find this easier. Because on the map these buds will be marked as an "X".

GameCube | Submitted by AdamSelepation Cave Boss Strategy
This boss can be pretty annoying if you don't attack him right. First, kill his allies. It doesn't matter what the boss is doing, his allies die first. Wait till he sucks air in, then charge up and focus attack him. After your focus attack, you can usually also get 3 basic hits in with your sword. IF you get hit, just run back far away and use cure. Repeat this till he is dead
GameCube | Submitted by GamesRadarSuper Element "Unown Element"
First go on the lynari Desert Then go all the way north till you see a cactus that is green then cast thunder on it. then head east from there and cast gravity on the broken down camp site. Then head south to a mushroom like rock on the hill side past the two mountains that shot's out sand. Then go back near the cactus from the beginning and look for the three rocks that when you examine say "this place seems special" cast blizzard on them smallest to biggest. Then head west of the stating point and then keep going up. There should be a big flower that wasn't there before and cast holy on it and the unknown element hot spot will appear. The unknown element lets you pass trough any misma stream but dos not save you from any bad effects
GameCube | Submitted by MogThe Colores of mog.
If you paint Mog he will help you in battle by casting a spell according to what color he is painted (only if he is not holding the Chalice). Blue, he will cast Blizzard , Red he will cast Fire, Green he will cast Thunder. The more of one color he is the the better the chances he will help you.

If you shave mog after you go to a dungeon were there is a lot of heat like a desert or a volcano he will not get tired as often and make you carry the Crystal Chalice.
GameCube | Submitted by Brendan B.Beating the boss Giant Crab
In River Belle Path to beat the boss use Fire, Holy, and Blizzard spells to do the most damage. He is immune to thunder spells. If you are a Lilty don't try spells go in for combos and Focus Attacks.
GameCube | Submitted by Marty S.Artifact Tips
Once you've collected a drop of myrrh from any area, you can't collect another drop or letter until the next cycle, two years later. But, if you return to an area before the next myrrh cycle, you can still beat the boss and collect an artifact. You can do this as many times as you want, until the area has none left.

GameCube | Submitted by Marty S.Moogle Spellcasting
When Mog says, "Hang in there, kupo," he will cast a spell with you. Make him drop the chalice and charge up your own spell, and he'll target a spell on the same spot. (In single player Rebana Te Ra, this is the only way to activate some switches.)

GameCube | Submitted by KretzBeat Orc King
You can defeat Orc King by using either magic or weapon attacks. In single player mode, fuse Blizzara in your command list and attack from a distance to damage the Orc King while freezing the pesky Orcs around him. Attacking with physical attacks will also work if your defense is high enough. (With a Selkie you can again stick to using your focus attacks because you lessen your chance of the Orc King hitting you with an attack. Also, with the Orcs that the boss summons, lure them away from the boss and pummel them, otherwise you'll get pummeled.)
GameCube | Submitted by GamesRadarTips for boss battles
GIANT CRAB(single player)
Use your best spells on the big ol' thing. You'll most likely be able to use blizzaga by the time you get to him. If you do USE IT! It's quite a good move it took just a little while to beat him as a yuke for me. Use focus attacks on him too, especially when he's charging up the his electrical moves.
GIANT CRAB(multi player)
Fighting this boss as a team is pretty easy. One player can get it's attention from the front while the others go around and beat on it. If you have 3 players attacking the thing from behind and one attacking it's front don't worry about focus attacks, you should be able to beat him fast enough.
This thing will turn to face you most of the time. When it powers up for an attack run to the other side to avoid getting hit and beat on the thing. Use fire moves to attack him if you have good enough magic. Either way this boss is unbelievably easy.
It's best to use Fira or Firaga on this boss. If those aren't available due to others not having fire, someone can use fire and another can use a focus attack to create flamestrike.(i've tried flamestrike a lot it's pretty hard to do) Or you could just gang up on the thing and hope for the best. (I don't recommend it though)
GameCube | Submitted by ZectorBeating The Wizard Goblin Boss
After the movie scene, he will send about five smaller goblins. Kill them in order to get two keys to open the door to the boss. He will warp to a different area if you get to close. He then will either poisen you or shock you. Some small goblins will eventually attack you. The best way to kill him is to use the spell slow if you have it and use many charge up attacks. His spells take long to fire so you can easily avoid them. I have found that thunder and gravity work well against him. Attack him like this for around five minutes and he should be dead. Don't forget to use cure, for you will need it if you get hit.
GameCube | Submitted by KretzBeat Goblin King
The Goblin King waits behind a double-locked gate. Defeat the entry-area goblins to get the two keys. As you attack the king, Goblin duos will often storm the scene. Position yourself so both Goblins stop and strike at once, then beat a hasty retreat and power up a felling blow against both as they advance in tandom. (With Selkies, destroy one Spear Goblin and then let the other chase you to some part of the room. Run away fast and/or good enough and he won't follow allowing you to easily defeat the slow moving king who you can now easily take down with focus attacks while dodging his magic attacks)
GameCube | Submitted by Robert PolMushroom Forest Boss
Your first priority is to take out the smaller plants so you can put your full attention on the boss.Once they're gone(they will reappear every now and then, just kill them again-they're much weaker than before) start attacking the boss. It helps if you're using a Lilty or Yuke. Naturally if you're using a Lilty simply charge up and attack AFTER he's attacked with his vines or After you've moved out of the way of where he is attacking, the same applies for the yuke except with magic. Repeat this a you should be done in a matter of minutes.

GameCube | Submitted by Kenshin HimoraEasy Battle Strategies
There are different strategies for different enemies. Here are some of the best ones.
Bosses:When you are facing a boss DO NOT use magic. If you use magic the bosses alli will have time to attack. Instead, just run up behind the boss, attack him once or twice, then run back. An even better one is to run up, attack head on, and take some damage along with you're enemy. Then run far away from battle, and use cure on yourself. It restores all of you're health. Keep repeating this process until he's dead.
Ememies: For enemies, all you need to do is attack once, back away, attack twice, back away, do a bouble attack, and you win.
Magic enemies: Just wait for them to use the attack, and when they are charging up, go behind them, and finish them off.
Slow enemies: Basically the same thing as for the magic enemies.
Squirrels and bats: These are some of the hardest enemies in the game. Even though there small, they take 5 hits to kill, and they keep attacking. The best way to kill these guys are to continuously move backwards as it tries to attack you. When you get the chance, use magic on it. Keep using magic on it until it's dead.
Bosses servants: Whenever you face a boss, it calls for the help of an alli, and the farther you get in the game, the tougher they are. First of all, you ALWAYS kill the alli first. It could be any game from "Skies of arcadia legions" to "House of the dead". Always kill the alli first. After that then use cure on yourself, and the boss is all yours.
Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles Cheats
GameCube | Submitted by Anonymous PeaceBeat the First Malboro
This worked for me, so, I figured that I should just post it up here for everyone else!
To defeat this Musroom Forest Boss, use a Selkie. My suggestion is the Raccoon Tail Female Selie because that's the one that let me kill the boss the fastest.
Make sure you have fish and other foods that they like the most.
Now, go to where the boss is.
Kill the two allies. Try not to lose too much HP because you don't want to waste all your food.
If you lost more than one heart, heal yourself with something that replenishes one heart by clicking the Y key and selecting one. When going into this menu, the game is paused.
After, go straight up to the boss.
Try to go to the far right and go straight up to the boss. Don't go backwards, go forwards.
Just keep hitting him and hitting him. He'll turn white from the damage, if you dealt enough of it, each time. That means that your doing good.
As soon as you get down to one heart, click Y. Use this time to calm down if you got nervous, excite, etc. while fighting. Then, go feed your Selkie a food that completely replenishes their hearts.
Now, click B and go back to fighting it. If you've been clicking fast enough, then, the ally should only be able to come up and attack once before you kill the boss. Remember, Ignore the allies if they pop up while your fighting! Just in case they do get a good hit at you, make sure that you have a phoenix down in your command slot. You should have one from earlier in the game. That way, even if you die, you can come back to life and continue where you are.
Eventually, you should be able to destroy it and get a drop of the water thing in your Chalice.
