  |-=- 01 -- Getting New Limit Breaks -=-|
     First off, many people don't know how to get Limit Breaks; for most people
  they just occur throughout the game as a cool little bonus.  But it doesn't
  just happen randomly.  Well you have some nerve buster.  In a set, this is
  how you earn them.  The level doesn't matter.

  First Limit Break:  Kill 80 enemies.  Only the one giving the final kill 
                      will get the credit.
  Second Limit Break: Use the First Limit Break 8 times.

  So basically, if you are going to get the Level 3, second Limit Break, you
  would simply use your Level 3, first Limit Break eight times.  It has been
  rumored that some characters (namely Vincent) don't need to go all the way to
  eighty enemies or eight times using the first Limit; it really doesn't 
  matter, aim high.

  There is another matter.  EXTREME Limit Breaks, or ELBs.  You get an ELB for
  some reason or another, but you must find it.  Your ELB is Level 4, and you
  only get one, unlike the two you get at each other level.  There are some
  characters who's ELB is lower than Level 4; either way, their ELB is still
  the best Limit Break they'll ever get.

  Cloud's ELB:        You're going to have to become a master at the Gold
  Omnislash           Saucer games for this Extreme Limit Break.  You can buy
                      this limit at any time, but it get's cheaper after Aeris
                      dies.  Buy it on Disc 1 for 64000 Battle Points; Disc 2
                      sells it for 32000 Battle Points.  Either way, get this
                      limit break as soon as you can.  It's so badass.

  Barret's ELB:       After you save North Corel (Barret's home town) from the
  Catastrophe         speeding train, visit a lady inside one of the homes.
                      She'll give you Catastrophe.  Be careful: If you didn't
                      save the town from the train, you won't get this limit.

  Tifa's ELB:         During Disc 2, Cloud will become all whoozy.  Tifa will
  Final Heaven        stay with you in Mideel.  After all is well and done,
                      return to Nibelheim, your home town.  Head to Tifa's
                      house and get ready to play on the piano.  Play this
                      ×, , ^, R1 + ^, R1 + , ×, , ^, R1 AND ×, o, ×, , ^.
                      Be ready to learn some stuff about Tifa and get her

  Aeris's ELB:        You'll need to first drive into Costa Del Sol, while on
  Great Gospel        your car.  Get on the boat, return to Junon, and drive
                      around until you find some streams the car can cross.
                      You'll see a cave.  Enter it to find a guy sleeping.
                      He'll be sleeping on any disc, so you can do this at any
                      time (hell, it's easier when you got the Highwind).  Talk
                      to the guy and he'll do something, one of a few things.
                      You'll need to get him to give you some Mythril.  To do
                      that, make sure you've run away from 11, 22, 33, 44, 55,
                      66, etc battles (the same numbered number.. heh).  If 
                      that fails just go see him every now and then, maybe
                      you will get lucky.  Whatever, you get the Mythril and 
                      head to the area of Gongaga.  There is a house that
                      overlooks the ocean, home of a blacksmith.  He'll want
                      your Mythril.  Hand it over, and choose the small box.
                      Don't bother with the large box, it's nothing good.  Just
                      take your small box (upstairs, far left) and be happy.
                      The truth is, getting this is hardly worth it.. she dies

  Red XIII's ELB:     This can be done on any disc.  Go to Nibelheim, Cloud's
  Cosmo Memory        home town.  Enter the mansion and head to the safe.  You
                      can either find the clues yourself, or use the safe combo
                      I provided: Right 36, Left 10, Right 59, Right 97.
                      You have limited time, but it's not hard.  You'll open
                      the safe and fight a battle.  Your rewards are numerous,
                      but for this guide the big reward is the new Limit Break!

  Cid's ELB:          Down in the depths of the ocean, Cid's break is hidden.
  Highwind            You'll need to get to the Shinra plane in the corner of
                      the ocean.  In one of the room you'll find the Limit
                      Break--and lots of other goodies.

  Yuffie's ELB:       After getting Yuffie and dealing with her (you know the
  All Creation        deal about the stolen materia), put her in your team.  Go
                      to the tower, and win all the battles.  They all have
                      like 5000HP (on the high end), which isn't hard at all
                      if you're on Disc 2.  This can be done on any Disc.  Once
                      you win the battles, you'll get the ELB and materia.

  Vincent's ELB:      Go to Lucrecia's cave in Disc 2 with Vincet on your team.
  Chaos               Then go back on Disc 3.  You'll have two prizes, one of
                      them the ELB.
