INTRODUCTION:

As with mostly all RPG's, enemies tend to leave behind items, along with
experience or any point system to increase the attributes of the various
characters which journey throughout the perilous landscape with the hope
of accomplishing their seemingly unattainable goal.   Final Fantasy VIII
is no exception.  All enemies leave behind useful items which can become
quite useful (and rare) as the game progresses.  The items gained depend
on the level of the monster and the how far the characters have advanced
in the game.  

The difference between Final Fantasy VIII and its predecessors is in its
ability (or rather the ability of the player) to increase the chances of
rare items appearing after a battle.  There are two GF's who possess the
"Rare Item" ability: Bahamut and Eden.  This ability GREATLY increases a
players chances of acquiring rare (and VALUABLE) items after battles. In
some cases this may be the only way of obtaining the necessary items for
a particular weapon or ability, for example.  

This is by no means the ONLY way of obtaining rare items. The "Card Mod"
ability (learned by GF Quetzacotl) allows players to modify Triple Triad
Cards in a given ratio to obtain items.  Mugging enemies is also another
means of gaining items (see my Mugging Guide for more information on the
subject).  However, this is where the game gets tricky.   During certain
battles, a player is unknowingly given a choice: either mug the enemy or
wait for the end of the battle to get items.  This explains why at times
when a player mugs an enemy there are NO items to be collected after the
battle ends and he emerges victorious.  All I am saying is to be careful
when you mug enemies; but DON'T worry:  I am such a nice guy that I will
warn you when you MAY encounter such a choice (at times "Lady Luck"'s at
your side and you can kill two birds with one stone).  

Just enjoy the game and feel free to ask me anything; I'm always willing
(but not always able) to comply.  ;)

                B A T T L E    S P O I L S    L I S T


(   )  Common Item(s) - acquire after almost every battle
( * )  Scarce Item(s) - acquire after defeating 20+ enemies
(***)  RARE Item(s) - MAY acquire after killing 30+ enemies over LVL 30
          (* DON'T expect to get rare items in DISC 1)

 -- Bosses are denoted by a "(!)" sign after their name, and since they 
    are bosses, you can only recieve a predetermined amount and type of 
    items.  HOWEVER, if you fight a monster who was ONCE a boss (but now 
    is an average enemy), you will be able to acquire different items 
    after the battle.  If this is the case the enemy will be repeated 
    and AFTER the "(!)" sign the DISC where he appears will be in 
    parenthesis.

-- In the case of bosses, the parenthesis before the item denotes the 
   amount of items that can be gained, since it is predetermined.
 
-- There is a very high probablility that by mugging the enemy you will 
   forfeit any chance of receiving an item

-- Occasionally, enemies leave behind cards after a battle (their cards)
   If this ocurrs, there will be a "(C)" after the name.  HOWEVER, if 
   the enemy will ALWAYS leave behind a card (such as certain bosses) it 
   will be displayed in the items column and there will be NO "(C)" 
   sign after the name.

-- If you mug an enemy then turn it into a card, you may get both mugged 
   items and battle spoils that are normally found after a fight.
