Final Fantasy III Cheats


First, you get all of your characters around level 60-65. You must have a Devout, a Summoner, a Black Belt, and a Ninja in your party. Put your mages in the back row, and make sure that the devout has every white Magic spell in his/her spell book. Then make sure that your summoner has every summon magic available for use.

The Cloud of Darkness attacks four times each round. It swipes its hand at your, uses bad breath, casts the spells haste and protect on itself, and uses lightning. After you deplete a portion of it's health, it starts using Particle Beam a lot.

The party should have the best armor and weapons equipped, and you want good defense and magical defense. Everyone should have their share of either ribbons, aegis shields, or onion armor so the bad breath attack won't affect them.

Use Arise when ever needed, and when not needed, use Curaja and Curaga every turn. When you use Arise, have everyone else that is standing use an elixir so they won't die. Intend to use up all of your shuriken and elixirs. I killed The Cloud of darkness in about 8 rounds using this technique, and this party at Level 66:

Arc: Summoner
Luneth: Black Belt
Refia: Devout
Ingus: Ninja

The four best jobs you should have when you first get to use the jobs is a Warrior, Black Mage, White mage, and Red Mage. These four jobs should help you a lot. | Submitted by dcsboy12

When you are able to get the job(s) monk and or Blackbelt get them on one of you characters immediately!

Monk and Blackbelt do massive amounts of damage even without weapons. Monks are the early stage but have about the highest vitality early and can do 9,999 as early as lvl 30 in some cases or earlier.

Blackbelts are the upgraded rank of monk but can do much more damage. Monks can boost their attack so on the next turn it can unleash a massive blow. Blackbelt also have super high vitality and agility so they can strike first, strike long, and strike hard.

In order to acquire the Ninja class -- considered to be the strongest class of them all -- you need to go to Eureka (a sidequest area found in the first floor of Sylx Tower) and go all the way through it. When seeing the last teleport (the one who usually takes you to an area with stores), turn all the way left and you will see a floating staff. By touching it you'll fight Scylla, who gives you this class, when defeated.

To kill the cloud of Darkness you need a Black Belt, a Scholar, and a Devout. The third position is up to, I used a Geomance whitch seemed to work well.

For the Devout you'll need the spells Curaga, Curaja, Arise, and Esuna and that's all you really need but if you have the rest that will help.

Everyone should be at least level 60 but the higher the level the easyer it is to beet the boss. Everyone should have a ribbon for two reasons: one, is because it helps with magic defence and two, because the Cloud of Darkness has two Tentacles that usually use "Bad Breath" that will inflict every status ailment on your party.

The Black Belt needs to have the Hellish Claws and the Dark Claws. Use the duplication cheat on either a Chocoboe's Wraith or a White Musk untile you have around 25 for all of the bosses in the world of Darkness and the Cloud.

If the Scholar uses either one of those at a high enough job level it will always do 9,999 damage. Use Curaga every turn unless your party doesn't have that much health then use Curaja. Attack with Black Belt every turn. If you have to use Arise, everyone else should use an elixer unless they have full health. If you're using the Geomancer as I did, try Terrian every turn. Within 5 to 7 turns, the battle will be cleared.

All useable items (not weapons/armors/magic) can be duped using this method, as mentioned,

1. Open the menu during "walkabout mode" (i.e., not in a battle).

2. Select "Items" and put the item you want duplicated in the top left corner of the item list.

3. Engage in a random battle. During battle, select the item command for any character.

4. Your cursor should be at the very top left of the item box (and on the item you have placed there). Press UP and A at the same time. This should briefly take you to Weapon and Shield lists. If you see this, the code has worked after you hit the B button. Go to your inventory and you will notice that the item quantity has been added by one. You may do this for any item that is stackable.

*WARNING: This item duplication will ruin the game play, please note to do this at your own risk. If may also damage your save file so please duplicate your save before you attempt this.

In Final Fantasy III, all magics can be duped using this method, as mentioned, please use at your own risk.

Procedures:
1)Open menu screen via non-battle.
2)Select "Magic"
3)Go to any character you desire and select by A Button
4)Once at the magic menu, go select Trade (koukan)
5)Highlight a character that has magic you want to duplicate, but do not push the accept button (A button). Simply highlight the character (Hover the cursor on the character)
6)After highlighting the character you wish to duplicate magic off, hit the cancel button once (B button)
7)You should be back to the first character you chose, now go select Remove (Hazusu)
8)Now, move your cursor to the level and space of magic you wish to duplicate from the character you highlighted. You will get and hear the error message, but in reality, you are removing the magic that you don't even have(duplicated magic).


*You will now that the glitched worked on begging of step8 if the description of the magic you want to duplicate is describe in the text box. If you are using the character that has magic already (the one you chose on step 3) in the level you want to duplicate magics off, make sure you remove all magic he has equipped on before Step 1, other wise you will rewrite the loose the magic with the one you are trying to duplicate.

In the Crystal Tower, there are summoner enemies that will summon creatures to attack you. If you continue to kill their summoned creatures but donít slay the summoner itself, you can make a lot of Gil and experience while staying in the same battle. So, for instance, if you fight the summonerís creatures 30 times, you will make in the region of 100,000 Gil and 72,400 experience.

Go to the Town Of The Ancients and talk to the child two stories up the grass hills. He is back behind the stairs. He will tell you that he will give you a prize if you ride around the continent. Leave town and go east a bit. Get a Chocobo and ride around the outside of the continent. Go back and talk to the child for your rewards. Sell them, then repeat.

If you want to be able to level up a character to job level 99 in any given job in only a few hours, try the following. Enter a random battle with as weak of an enemy as you can find (since it's arbitrary how strong the creature is). Select the "Guard" command for your characters. Do this for four rounds. On the fifth round, kill the enemy party. Each character will receive a job level. Repeat as needed.

At first I had trouble with the boss but here's an easy way.

Go through the dugeon a couple times to get enough exp to make the battle even easier. But a city to the south called "The Village of the Ancients" contains all three level black magics as well as the white magic teleport.

I used three mages : 2 red (Luneth and Ingus) and a black (Arc). I made Refia a Monk. Have your red mages cast healing and ice spells. A monk can retaliate easily with the new claws found in the dungeon. If you keep the black mage casting ice spells as well you'll definetly win in a few rounds.

Another thing you should probably do is move them to the back, especially the black mage and the red mages too, if they have enough high level magic MP.

To get the Shuriken (available only to the Ninja class for them to throw), head to Gysahl Town. Enter the ship where you can purchase Magic Keys. Go to the right of the counter in the store and you will walk through a secret passage that will allow you to go behind the desk. There you will find the treasure chest which contains the powerful Shuriken.

In the Nintendo DS version of FFIII, there is a secret dungeon that contains a secret boss harder than the last boss, in order to obtain access:

1)Send a total 7 mails to another PC (one or multiple) using Mog Net.
2)Send 4 mails using Mog Net to the NPC: The 4 Elderly
3)Send 4 mails to King Arusu and after reading the fourth one, you'll unlock a quest
4)Go ride on the airship that can go underwater
5)Head for the floating island and once finding it, go exactly south.
6)You will eventually see a shadow in the waters, once you do go underwater to enter the cave
7)Soon after entering the dungeon, you will meet the secret boss

*This boss is notorious and mean. It does a total of 4 attacks per sound and also uses Meteo. Please be at a very high level before attempting this fight.

Back in the original Famicom FFIII, Onion Swordsman was the first job you start as (unlike Freelance from the DS version), but you can play this job in the Nintendo DS version as well by unlocking it. Onion Swordsman is one of the most powerful jobs with the Onion Equipment + past level 90's.

How to obtain:
1)Register someone elses's (or multiple) communication ID under Mog Net.
2)Send message to another PC 7 times
3)Send and receive 4 messages from Topapa, on the fourth one you will receive a message to do a mini-quest.
4)Go to Uoul (First town in the game)
5)Talk to Topapa
6)Go to the cave up north of the cave
7)At the drop hole, you will have an event and then will be proceeded to fight 3 bombs
8)After the battle, you will obtain a piece of crystal, which will unlock Onion Swordsman

6)Your cursor should be at the very top left of the item box, the item you have placed there. Once you're here, hit UP and A button at the same time
7)This will briefly take you to Wepon/Shield list (about 1/2 second). If you see this, the code has worked after you hit "cancel' or B button. Go to your invetory and you will notice that the item quantity has been added by one.

With this method you are able to duplicate any demishable items, even items you can't by such as Chocobo's Rage, Elixir, Phoenix Down.

There are six level eight spells (Flare, Death, Meteor, Tornado, Arise, Holy), but they can only be purchased for use at one shop. The shop is located in the Forbidden Land of Eureka, and each spell can be purchased as many times as you'd like for 60,000 Gil per spell.

In the earlier parts of the game when you are alone and party-less, excessive levelling is much recommended since the level at which your comrades will be introduced to you will highly depend on the level you are in when you meet them.

For example, Fran and Balthier will always be 2 to 4 levels above yours when you get to use them. If you're Lv10 then they can be anywhere from Lv12 to Lv14. This may seem unimportant but it'll soon become evident in the higher levels when each level requires 30K exp and ontop of that experience points from kills are split to each of your party member. These small early foundations can become a godsent farther in the game.

Register someone multiple communication IDs on Mog Net. Send seven messages to another player. Send and receive four messages from Topapa. After reading the fourth one you will get a message giving your a mini-quest. Go to Uoul and talk to Topapa. Go to the cave that is to the north of the other cave. Enter, then defeat the three Bombs to get a piece of crystal. This will unlock the Onion Knight as a job.

For the Onion Knight, this weapon can be found in the secret dungeon by slaying Red Dragon.

The DS version has a secret dungeon that is accessed after the following is performed.

1. Send a total 7 emails to another PC (one at a time or several at once) using Mog Net.

2. Send 4 emails using Mog Net to the NPC "The 4 Elderly".

3. Send 4 emails to King Arusu. After reading the fourth email, you'll unlock a quest.

4. Go ride on the airship that can go underwater.

5. Head for the floating island and once it appears on the screen, travel cardinally south.

6. You will eventually see a shadow in the waters. Enter it to enter the submarine cave.

7. You will meet the secret boss. This boss is notorious and mean. It does a total of four attacks per round and uses Meteo.

If you get the Onion Knight, there are special weapons and armor that only he can equip. They are called the Onion Sword, Shield, Gauntlets, Helm, etc. You can get them by fighting red and green dragons. These can be found towards the top of the Crystal Tower and in the "secret dungeon".

1. Register someone's ( or more ) friend code on your DS.
2. Send 7 messages to another DS ( faraway or nearby )
3. Send messages to Takka until you get a reply talking about Orichalum.
4. Fix Sara's pendant by sending messages until you get a reply saying that her pendant is broken.
5. Ask Takka to fix it
6. If that doesn't work, go meet the legendary smith. Leave the floating continent and go to northwestern Saronia City. The legendary smith should be near the path leading to the library. If you find the Orichalium (Used to make a Ultima Weapon), she will forge something out of it and give it to you in return for finding the Orichalum 7. Get it fixed and return it to Sara.
8. Send messages to Cid until he replies with a "Something is in the basment.." kind of title.
9. Head to Cid's house in Cannan and talk to Cid. Head down to the basement on the east side of the room, kill Aeon and it should drop Unknown Metal. Talk to Cid and he'll say that it is the legendary metal called, Orihalcum.
