    Buy Shurikens


    Just so that you don't have to look through a guide to find this out, when you are in Eureka go to the very end and go through the magic portal. There will be two strange people selling magic spells, above the person to the right there is a secret invisible passage take that passage and there will be a third weirdo selling Shruikens, crystal helms, crystal armor, crystal bracers, crystal gloves, and Apollo Harps. Hopes this helps.

    Esy Leveling In The Early Game

    Anywhere, The Djiin Cave is great at Lower levels

    At the start of the game, When you grab the Antarctic Winds, Use the Item Duplication glitch to multiply it, Now in any fight, use an Antarctic Wind on the enemy to easily kill it. Some enemies, like the Mandrake, take two hits. You can even use the Antarctic Winds on bosses. Just make sure to duplicate the Antarctic Winds when you only have around 1 to 5 remaining.

    Defeat Medusa at the Tower of Owen

    On your first turn during the battle, use your strongest attack option, whether it's an attack, spell, or item. Then have one character heal the party while the other three attack. Medusa will attack twice per turn and she can use spells such as Fira, Blizarra, and Thundara. An Arctic Wind can cause around 700 damage, but use strong items like this only if you need to. She only has 3000 HP so keep plugging away and she'll wear out.

    Cid's Treasure

    After blasting the big rock in the beginning of the game, you meet Cid and return him to his town. If you visit his house, you'll discover that his wife is sick. But if you make her better, you'll be handsomely rewarded. So go to the southeast portion of town and you'll find a chest containing elixir. Give it to cid's wife and cid will reward you with the contents of his cellar (a nice load of treasure).

    Find the Awesome Wightslayer

    When you enter Castle Sasue, there will be a tower to your left and right. Go to the left tower and get all the items there, then go to the right tower. At the top there will be 2 angels beside a chest. When you open it a griffen will attack you, but you can use the bow and arrows you got from the previous tower. Note: I recommend not using the Holy Arrows because you'll need them in Sealed Cave.

    A Few Good items, that aren't that hard

    Princess Sara's Castle

    When you go to the entrance of the castle, turn left and there should be some sort of watch tower. Climb those stairs and open the boxes as you go. The last chest on the top floor, has a monster guarding it, so you have to beat it. But be careful, it can do some major damage. Once you get all those items, go back to the castles entrance. This time go to the right and do the same thing, opening the chests as you go. You will get some pretty decent items. Enjoy them!

    Mini Spell Letdown

    In a dungeon

    If you use the mini spell, all attacks do no damage to enemies. Now, if you want to deal any damage, you have to use spells.

    Holy Arrows


    When rescuing Princess Sara, a good weapon to use to defeat the undead in the dungeon she is in is a bow and some holy arrows. they do decent damage to the undead. Once you run out, use wooden arrows. They don't always do as much, but they are still decent overall.

    Get Leviathan

    Do you see the lake on the floating continent that has a shadow in it, that's the lake I'm talking about. This time you need the Invincible and you go to the little waterfall. Then you go over the little mountains and then try to set down on the lake. You should be able to go into a cave (don't remember the name). Go all the way through the cave and find and fight Leviathan. Once you beat it, you get the spell to summon it.

    Ready The Cannons!

    Vikings Cove

    In Vikings cove you may notice a cannon that is pointed towards the water. If you walk up to it, and press A, it fires the cannon. It doesn't do anything as far as I know of, but its a nice little Easter Egg.

Final Fantasy III Glitches

    Item Duplication

    This trick works on any item you can use in battle, such as Elixirs or Phoenix Downs. Enter the item menu outside of battle. Move the item to be duplicated to the first slot. While in battle, choose the item menu, then press Up + A. If done correctly, you should see a flash of the equipment screen before seeing the main menu again. Press B to cancel. The item is now duplicated. You can repeat this as many times as desired, but be careful not to get more than 99 of an item as it may glitch your game or saved game file. Note: Items can be in either the top left or top right hand corner to be duplicated.
