When the flame appears, equip your water scroll
and hit the flame (oh and the flame will change
its shape and size so be careful) once its had
enough damage, its core will appear on its face,
so hit it with lumina (the triangle button) and
make sure to stock up on cheese and any other
healing items before you go into battle!
Each time you you complete one of topo's dance's
the speed will start to get really fast and if
you pause for a second, you will lose and topo
will make fun of you!
Bubbles' Vambee Challenge
After you appraised the UglyBelt, go to the
church at 2:00a.m. to kill the Vambee Soldiers.
Use all the scrolls you have got against Kojiro
if you want to beat him easier.
Press R1 (guard). Make sure you are facing your enemy and your power gauge is full. When guarding an attack, press Square or Triangle quickly.
Hold R1 until the special is all the way up while
having the Earth Scroll on. Do this while the
bucket or rock is hanging over him, and when he
is shooting out of his mouth (dodge his shots
before you do anything).
Use the Water Scroll on the plant enemies. Most
of the plants in the game will grow into a larger
size if watered.
Alternate Way To Get Lumina Sword
When you are on the top of Spiral Tower, there is
a barrier blocking the Lumina Sword. The only way
to get it is by stepping on a panal that opens it.
Pick up an enemy, then stand on the panel with
him in your hands. Have another enemy hurt you.
You will drop him, and for a short time he will
be laying on the panal, giving you a good chance
to get the Lumina Sword and run.
