Achieve 'Tyrant' Title
Defeat Lord Baal in the bottom of the Mysterious Seal and Laharl will gain the title of Tyrant.
Dark Assembly Combat
When passing a bill in the Dark Assembly by force, you can eliminate combatants who voted nay by throwing them on top of a stronger demon who voted yea. The hostile demon disappears and the supporting demon grows stronger. As long as at least one decent level demon supports your request, you can pass any request even at low levels.
Diabolic Sword
To get the Diabolic Sword, talk to Ghoss during/after the last chapter.
Easy Level-Ups
Strong Sword (Cosmic Blade, Diabolic Sword,etc)
Winged Slayer (sword special)
High enough demon rank at Dark Assembly
Stronger Enemies Bill(if needed)
Weaker Enemies Bill(if needed)
Cave of Ordeal Bill
Get to episode:Captain Gordon Defender of Earth.

Go to Stellar Graveyard and enter Valgipus IV. Then you'll see the enemies in a giant sqare. Use winged slayer on them and you'll gain like 3-10 levels and 11,000 hl. You can use the stronger enemies bill for more exp and hell.

Go to Cave of Ordeal and enter cave no.3. Use the same stratgy above.
easy leveling
Before doing this your main char. needs to be between 25-30, and you need a wind mage thats about 20.

Buy a decent amount of SP potions, and then go to Jotunheim, Terrible Cold
Combine all the enemies and they should be about 140. Put the high level monster (created by combining ALL of the monsters on the map!) on the green square (this is the only square on the map that does not provide "Invincibiliy") and keep attacking the monster with all of your characters until it gets down to about 50-200. Take the character (MUST BE OVER 15 AND HAVE GOOD ATTACK AND HIT!!!) that you wish to level and let them finish them off for many levels!!!

You can get a ton of levels if you do this repeatedly and you can get even MORE levels if you get the "Triple Exp" passed by the Senators (DO NOT DO ANY MAP IF YOU GET TRIPLE EXP PASSED)
This is a great way to level any character that is below 50-70 (2 examples of how effective this is...)
1. A level 7 Scout leveled to 28 without triple exp
2. Level 24-26 Laharl to level 41 with triple exp
Easy Money
In Episode 13, The Gargantua Deck level allows you to pick up high level items quickly. As the aim of the level is just to get one character onto the yellow square on the far side of the map, simply stack a couple of characters and throw them to within walking distance. You won't get any HL, but you will get an item or about 5000 XP. You can then sell the items, and, if you lose low level characters, level up a little whilst doing so.
Easy Weapon mastery
This takes a lot of time to prepare for if you are just starting out. You will need up to 1900 armasters, and a two people with a lot of counter(Majin is the best choice). Just equip the weapon you want with all the armasters on the Person and have them on a stage with invincibility and constantly attack with them. You will see a great increase in weapon mastery kinda quickly. As for magicians, best choice is Midboss's first stage on the +1 attack and have them heal or decrease an ally or enemy(this takes a whole lot longer but worth it if you want to use a staff with Flonne
Enemies Can Join Your Party
When place an enemy on a base panel it will either kill all your remaining party members or join your party. Bosses won't join your party and monsters will join on tentative occasions
Etna's Secret Room
To access Etna's secret room, click behind the throne. Then go to the skull on the counter of the armor shop and click on it as well. Now in the room with Longinus, click on the corner and Etna will say that she has to go to the bathroom.

If you read the entries for each chapter in their respective chapter, you'll receive Testament after the Final Episode.
Fast Ninjas
A Ninja with high speed and nine or ten movement is a great addition to your team, particularly if plan on completeing many item dungeons (since they can simply walk over to the base panel in fewer turns than any other character, and dodge any attacks on the way).

First, try giving them three pairs of good shoes, to up their movement by three. You can give them another movement point by reaching a certain level at the Dark Assembly, then passing the more movement bill.

When you have time, try levelling their shoes. Fill them with as many coaches as possible Coach's (the power doesn't matter, just the number - ie, if the population of the item is six, fill it with six coaches of any level), then head through the item dungeon, being sure to kill any and all item Generals, Gods and Kings. Leave after every ten levels (the game will give you the option) to heal and save. This should add quite a few hundred points of speed, making your ninja untouchable (although they may start dodging healing spells, too. -_- )
Free items
Find a battle with a monster with decent armor and weapons on that you might need... weaken it, then catch it! =)
get high level monsters easily

You'll only be able to get this once and that will be the first time you fight him. Anyways, weaken him to about 20-50Hp,depending on how strong ALL your guys are, then throw him into you base panel.

Learning from the...pupil?
To have a character learn an ability from their pupil, have the two stand next to each other, and let the master use the ability until their mastery of it reaches level 1. How long this takes varies from each character. Once they reach level 1, the master will be able to use the ability whenever they want.
Leveling Clerics or Flonne
In order to level these characters just equip a gun or (preferably) a bow.

Also, for Clerics you can work them through an offensive mage class and then switch them over to the Cleric job.
Leveling up weak characters
To level up weak characters easily just go to salamanders breath in the level you unlock when your trying to look for the kids pet zombie. It's full of lvl. 20 zombies and ALL of it is an experience plus 100%. It's really easy if you have good items and a person who knows blade rush.
Leveling weak friends
To level up weak friends, have them included in comboattacks. Even if they do 0 damage or miss, as long as theenemy is killed they will get some shared EXP.

Levelling Areas
There are some great locations through-out the game and one place that is really helpful at the beginning is the Blazing Core 1st level.
Just throw all the monsters together and then weaken it till it has a tiny amount of damage left and then combo attack it with the weak character you are levelling up and they will grow many levels!!

*REMEMBER* to make sure that they are standing on the 100% EXP panel.
Powerful Clerics
Create a cleric (females have slightly better stats) and give her a mage pupil. If they stand next to each other, the cleric can use her pupil's spells, and after a while she'll be able to use them by herself. Give her the best staff and your best intelligence boosting items, and you'll be able to smash through anyone. Her range is fantastic, too, once you've begun to master the staff.
Promotion Exam Tip
Before each promotion, make sure to equip whoever you are using with your best equipment, thus maximizing his/her stats. Using this little trick allows you to beat promotion exams even when you are several levels under your combatants.
Recruiting Marjoly
After completing several promotion exams, the bill "The Mysterious Seal" opens up. The character attempting to pass it must have both 5000 mana and at least 5000 influence.

After passing the bill in the Dark Assembly, there is one board to complete, and then Laharl must face off against Marjoly, known to be the most malevolent sorceress in the universe. She is level 2500, however, if you defeat her she will join and comes equipped with 4 legendary items each known as "a keepsake left behind by a vassal."
Recruiting Priere
After completing several promotion exams, the bill "Alternate Netherworld" opens up. It costs 3000 mana, and the character attempting to pass it must have an influence of at least 3000.

After passing the bill for the Alternate Netherworld, there are 4 levels until the final level, where Laharl and company must face off against Priere, a human who became interested in the Dark Arts and rose to the position of Overlord in an Alternate Netherworld. She is level 2000, however, if you defeat her she joins your team with a legendary Arcadia.
Selecting Monster with Little Mana
After defeating a monster, it will show up in the character select screen. It will be selected with lot's of mana. In order to get the monster with little Mana, go to where you can fight the monster, and keep defeating it until it's manga cost drops down.
Staff of Sorcery
To get the Staff of Sorcery, talk to Gargo after Episode 8.
Stealing the Items from the extra bosses more than once.
Even though it tends to get very annoying you can fight the bosses like Priere and Majorly again and again simply by beating the game and passing the bill again. Which means you can steal their items again. This can be very handy if the item is of particular value.
The Dark Assembly
When wanting a big request approved, get some small cheap items and fill up your item bag. Go into the assembly and go into your reuqest. While infront of the assembly click on each member before voting and give them items that they like. Leave and repeat. Don't start voting until they it looks like they are a definite pass. Then vote and you should have your request granted.
Unlocking the Majin Class
To unlock the Majin Class, you need the following charcters at level 200:

Male Brawler

NOTE: The Majin class is one of the best classes in the game.
Vile Brilliance
To get Vile Brilliance talk to Manty after Episode 11.

Combo + Boost Cheat/Glitch
When doing Combo Chains (Various characters attacking/connecting enemies together, to get a boost to power, and bonus guage, when killing enemies), I have found that even if you KILL the enemy that is supposed to link the chains together, providing your next character will hit at least one other enemy in that chain, you still get the Combo+ Chain.

Ex. - A spear user kills a sprite that is standing next to a zombie. Your next attacker in the chain (like a Mage), uses a multiple target spell (3 square spell) that was to connect the now dead sprite, to the zombie. The sprite may be dead, but since the attack grid square is still going over the spot that held the sprite, the combo chain isn't lost. This saves a lot of hassle.

NOTE: Doesn't work if the next attacker to succeed is now incapable of hitting anything on their attack grid, that connects the now empty grid spot, and other enemies. The chain gets broken.

File this under glitches.

BTW: Didn't see this submitted, but it might have been.
Empusas and Nekomatas!
In Jotunhein, map Terrible Cold, you are all invincible. Don't destroy the invincible Geo Symbol...there is a better way. (hehe...) Throw all your opponents together to make powerful enemy!!! (She will end up to be lvl 112!) After that, throw her into the only neutral and green panel. (Look around the map if you don't see it.) Now, get all your members, around the opponent and gang up on her!!! You can earn about 5-10 lvls this way. Warning: About lvls 16 and up can defeat this high lvl monster!
