Defeat metables with ease
Have the sage/mage cast bedragon, then have the other cleric/sage cast speed up, (in that order) then you don't have to wait and let the metables flee to gain the most exp. You can also cast chance and get lucky that they wipe eachother out, you can die however by this move.
Getting rare medals easily
Defeat Divinegon once and choose the blank wish. This will give you a new dungeon found on Leiamland. To get into the different levels of the dungeon, you will need a certain amount of medals. If you don't have all the right medals, there is a way you can get certain hard-to-get ones.

First, save and copy your file. In the second file, defeat Divinegon again, and wish for rare medals. It gives you medals of a few hard to beat monsters, and they will be saved even if you delete the second file. This way, you can get the medals without having to beat Divinegon in a lower amount of turns.
Hint: Stupid Goonies
If at anytime some of your team becomes confused or decides to take a nap in the middle of a battle, hit them. It will wake them up and break whatever trick they are under. I suggest you make your weakest companion hit them if possible, or cast a weak spell like blaze on them.
How to Defeat BaraBomus, and BaraGonus Easy
To defeat BaraBomus and BaraGonus easy, follow this guide.

Loads of cheats:
Hint: Bonus dungeon:
Collect all the Monster Coins in the game to unlock a new dungeon.

Hint: More Sages:
There are two Zen Scroll Books in every game, but you do not necessarily need the book to create a Sage. When you get stronger, change one of your characters into a Jester. Then train it to level 20 and bring it to the Dharma Temple. The Sage option is automatic for any Jester at level 20. It is possible to have more than one Sage per game.

Hint: All spells:
To get almost all spells, keep changing everyone to a different class and fight around Gondo to level up. For example, change to Dealer, then Thief, then Jester, then Sage.

Hint: Easy experience:
To get a high amount of levels, get the Blade Armor then go into Gonga's castle. Move around and try to encounter a Metababble and attack it. Only have one or two characters on your team. When it hits the character with the Blade Armor once, it will always get hit back for half the damage +1.

Have any character have at least one heal spell. Equip the Wreck Whip to them, and if they are female, the Light Dress. Warp to Rimuldar and walk to Zoma's Castle. You should fight with one person. Each fight you get into will result in 6,000 to 19,999 experience points.

Choose any character to go to the Pachisi track in Kol. Sometimes when you fight some monsters and get the experience points, you will go to level 99. This has happened to a Hero, Sage, and Fighter.

Each of the following methods of quick levels require the Spell Caster (Mage, Cleric, Sage, or character with the corresponding spell from a previous class) to have a lot of agility, as to get the first strike in a battle. It is also recommended (if you have defeated Baramos) that you go to the area outside of Rimudlar in the Dark World. If not, then Gondo Castle will work as well. Go to the area outside Rimudlar with a spell caster that has the spell BeDragon and any where from two to four party members, walk until you fight a Metable (hopefully a large group of them with three to five individuals). Immediately cast BeDragon. On the second round of battle, your spell caster that is in dragon form will spew flames. Any Metables that are on the screen when this happens will receive 90 to 110 damage (their maximum HP are only 6). You will receive approximately 40,000 experience for each one you kill, split among your party members. Another way to kill Metables easily is to cast Chance immediately. Hopefully it will cause the Metables to explode or have one of the other possible instant kill effects that Chance has.

Hint: Experience for levels:
All levels after 50 take the same amount of experience as from going from levels 49 to 50.

Hint: Defeating Divinegon:
Note: This is easier If your hero has gone to the level he is on to 99 on the track game in Kol. Have two sages and a cleric. If you are getting your last wish, this will work best. Start by only having your hero attack (save magic for HealusAll) then, have your sages cast BlazeMost and have the cleric cast Increase and TwinHits to make the hero strong when compared the attack of the magic BlazeMost. Be careful when Divinegon fires an Icy Pulse to get rid of your status changes in defense and attack. After about fourteen turns, he will be defeated and you will get your final wish.

Hint: Defeating Lord Baramos:
When you first come in contact with Lord Baramos, immediately cast Stopspell or he will hit you with Explodet and Blaze Most. Then, have one person that knows spells use Twin Hits on your two best fighters. Then, have that same person use Increase. Have the other spellcaster use Increase also. You need about five to seven Increases to stop is physical blows. When Baramos does a non-magical fire attack, cast HealUs. Just keep attacking without using magical spells -- unless one of your mages has low attack power, then use magic. With these tips, you should defeat him in less than five minutes. Party members should be at level 32 or higher.

Have at least three people on your team knows the Barrier spell. As the fight starts, cast the magic. All of the spells such as Explodet will be reflected. Also use the Magic Increase, and Speed Up to get your attacks in faster and better. Using TwinHits to increase your attack also works well.

Hint: Defeating Mettabels:
To defeat a Mettabel faster than equipping the Blade Armor, just have a two Sages or Mages with a lot of speed. Make sure they have the magic, BeDragon. Cast the magic at the beginning of the battle around Rimuldar area, and hopefully you will get into contact with at least six of them. Cast BeDragon and have the attacker spew fire. Note: You can not control the Dragon. It should inflict about 90 to 120 HP of damage, earning you about over 30,000 experience points.

Hint: Divinegon's wishes:
After defeating Zoma in the Underworld and earning the title of Loto, there will be a light beam at the Dragon Queen's castle which warps you to Sky World. Once past the caverns and such, you should reach Zenith. It resembles the queen's throne room from Isis. Once down the stairs and out the door, you will enter a tower. This is the Sky Tower of Divinegon, the most difficult Boss in the game. When you defeat him, he will grant you one of four wishes. He will then leave you, and the wish will come true. However, if return he will still be there. Defeat him again and you can get another wish. This time however, you have to defeat him in a certain number of turns, which things more difficult. If you are able to do this, any surviving party members will get 16,666 experience points.

Hint: Books Of Satori:
Randomly defeat the Blue Beaks. They can be found directly east of the Shoals.

Hint: Hero Shield:
When you defeat Zoma and are tossed up to the fault line, the treasures you find will contain Mimics and finally the Hero Shield.

Hint: King's Sword:
Go to the Domadora and go to the stable. Search the grass next to some horses and find the Oricon. This item can never be obtained again. Take the Oricon to Kol and talk to the person's wife who says that her husband make swords for the metal. Go inside the shop and talk to one of the people. One of them will take your Oricon and make the King's Sword.

Hint: Zenith:
After you defeat Zoma and you have the title as Loto, go to the Queen Dragon's Castle. Go all the way to the north where the elf is locatedand stand in the beam. Note: You should be at least level 45.

Hint: Monster Medals:
Monster Medals come in Bronze, Silver, and Gold (in that order). In order to get a Silver Medal, you must have a Bronze. To get a Gold, you have to have the Silver. It takes time to get all of the medals. To focus on the medal you want, kill that monster last.

Hint: Second Zen Scroll:
A second Zen Scroll is located in a house at Rimuldar, when you reach it later in the game. Look in the dresser in the house northwest of the Blacksmith Shop in Rimulder in Alfgard.

Hint: Suit changes:
Some armor changes the appearance of you characters. For example, the common Plush Suit that adds 35 to your defense will change your character into a squirrel. If you have a female in your party and you get a Magic Swimsuit from a Merking in Alegard, that character will appear with the bathing suit on.

Hint: Better characters:
When you are getting your allies, do not get the ones that are pre-made for you. Instead, go upstairs and make a warrior, a mage, and a cleric. For the Warrior, use three Str seeds and two Vit seeds. For the Mage, use three Int seeds and two Str seeds. For the cleric, use three Wis seeds and use two Int seeds to increase your mana.

Hint: Orb Locations:

Red: House of Pirates
Green: Tedanki
Yellow: New Town
Purple: Jipang
Blue: Navel of Earth
Silver: Shrine of Necrogond
Sage Rock
To get the Sage Rock you have to go to Zoma's Castle and then when you see 6 treasure chest open all of them but the last one is a mimic.
Unlockable: Dungeons
Beat the game to unlock two more dungeons. The second dungeon is opened by selecting the blank wish at the last boss.

Pachisi Glitch
This glitch will get your charater up a bunch of levels.

To do the Pachisi Glitch all you have to do is land on a ! or ? space on a Pachisi track and get a stat lowered by 1. Then go into a battle and at the end of the battle you will get a ton of exp. and your character will grow a ton of levels.

The only bad thing about this glitch is it lowers your characters stats, but sometimes it doesn't lower your stats.

This glitch can be done on the Pachisi Track in Kol.
