Data Drain

Kite acquires this power early in the game. It enables him to scan and remove viral code from monsters which decreases their power sufficiently and will only take one hit to kill. Doing so will increase your chances of earning a rare item or virus core which are used for Gate Hacking. Using the Data Drain raises your infection level which could lead to a glitch. The infection rate will rise in relation to the monster you are fighting. If his level is higher than yours, you can expect a higher increase of infection when using the Data Drain and the reverse is also true (a monster with a lower level will cause less infection). To observe your infection rate, select the skills screen and look at the Data Drain Infection data which is color coded.
Infection Color Code		Infection Percentage

Blue			0-24%
Light Blue			25-49%
Green			50-74%
Yellow			75-99%
Red			100%
You can decrease the infection rate by killing monsters without using the Data Drain ability. Doing so will decrease your infection level by 1-3% approximately.

Defeating Skeith

Buy many Resurrects, Healing Drinks, Antidotes, Restoratives and Mage's Souls. Have your party at least at level 30. Take a person with a lot of damage in your party, and equip the best equipment there is, as follows:
Equipment for Kite or Long Arm User: 
Weapon: Dante's Blades or Hell's Gate (Twin Blade), Fiend Spear (Long Arm) 
Helmet: Fire Dance Hat 
Armor: Firedrake Mail 
Hand Armor: Miner's Gloves or Smith's Gloves 
Leg Armor: Fire Lizard 

Equipment for BlackRose, Blademaster, Heavy Blade, or Heavy Axe: 
Weapon: Claymore (Heavy Blade), Jinsaran (Blademaster, Secret Rare Blademaster 
Sword) or Sun Fang One or Kikujyumonji, Devil's Axe (Heavy Axe) 
Helmet: Hunter's Hood or Forester Helm 
Armor: Blaze Armor 
Hand Armor: Hands of Fire 
Leg Armor: Electric Guard 

Equipment for Mistral or Wavemaster: 
Weapon: Starstorm Wand 
Helmet: Scarab Earring 
Armor: Lincoln Green (From Cima) 
Hand Armor: Air Bracer 
Leg Armor: Oak Anklet 
To defeat Skeith, distribute twenty Resurrects to each person in the party, then thirty Healing Drinks and twenty of Antidote and Restoratives. Do not distribute the Mage's Souls. Use the entire group at first and use skills. If Kite dies, press Square for "First Aid" and afterwards, just keep hitting him without skills. Once you get enough for data hacking, use it on Skeith and you will see his second form. Because of this, just do a hit and heal combo so you will not get major damage from the shockwave hits. Keep repeating this combo so you will not die. And if you do die, keep using "First Aid" and keep slashing away.

Defeating Parasite Dragon

After you defeat Skeith, there will be two e-mails by "Roy@Bandai"; one stating that you cleared the game and the other called "Giant of Heavens". Open it, and it mentions something about a "Mystical Giant". The e-mail will give you a Virus Core T and a new place to go to: "Delta Hideous Someone's Giant". The Boss is Parasite Dragon, Level 30, HP: 9999, SP: 305, Skill: Ranki Lei, Items: 3x Hyrakkidouran. To defeat this boss, you must use the following characters: Kite, Choice of Heavy Blade, Heavy Axe or Blademaster, and Wavemaster; along with these items:
Equipment for Kite or Long Arm User: 
Weapon: Dante's Blades or Hell's Gate (Twin Blade), Fiend Spear (Long Arm) 
Helmet: Fire Dance Hat 
Armor: Firedrake Mail 
Hand Armor: Miner's Gloves or Smith's Gloves 
Leg Armor: Fire Lizard 

Equipment for BlackRose, Blademaster, Heavy Blade, or Heavy Axe: 
Weapon: Claymore (Heavy Blade), Jinsaran (Blademaster, Secret Rare Blademaster 
Sword) or Sun Fang One or Kikujyumonji, Devil's Axe (Heavy Axe) 
Helmet: Hunter's Hood or Forester Helm 
Armor: Blaze Armor 
Hand Armor: Hands of Fire 
Leg Armor: Electric Guard 

Equipment for Mistral or Wavemaster: 
Weapon: Starstorm Wand 
Helmet: Scarab Earring 
Armor: Lincoln Green (From Cima) 
Hand Armor: Air Bracer 
Leg Armor: Oak Anklet
As you begin the battle, start by using everyone's best skills at the dragon. However, do not use magic since the Parasite Dragon has Magic Tolerance. The only thing that is effective on the dragon is physical attacks. Use both Kite and the Heavy Blade, Heavy Axe or Blademaster attacking the Dragon while the Wavemaster heals you. Because of the last battle against Skeith, you should have a lot of Resurrects. Keep attacking it and heal often. The dragon can do damages of 400+ for the fire breath and 500 for each of the two bite hits. Once finished, a short intermission sequence will show Kite saying that the monster made the airship into a flesh airship. Enter this battle with at least 15 Resurrects and make sure Kite knows Repth or La Repth. Instead of bringing in a Wave Master into the fight, bring in two of your strongest fighters (for example, BlackRose and Gardenia). When the portal with the Parasite Dragon opens, have Kite run away but tell the others to use attack skills. The Parasite Dragon will be occupied with the other two fighters and not on Kite. Keep having Kite heal everyone. When the other characters die, use a Resurrect. When the Dragon can be Data Drained (at about 700 HP) use Data Drain and you will get the Hyakkidouran for Kite.

Defeating The Goblin Kings

Going through a set number of events, a message will appear on the board called "Let's Play Tag". In this message, there will be a Golden Goblin challenging you to play tag. Go to the area instructed and try to defeat him. When you win, he will tell you how he is just an apprentice of the four Goblin Kings. Later, you will get extensions of the challenge note from one of the four Goblin Kings. To defeat them, get close enough to use a multi-hit attack, such as Tiger Claw or Staccato, after using an item or technique to raise your accuracy. Otherwise, most of the hits will miss. Repeat this a few times and you should defeat them easily. To kill the last Goblin without having it heal itself, bring some Mage's Souls and Speed Charm. First, use Speed Charm to go faster. When you get close enough to the Goblin, use skills. When you run out of SP, use Mage's Soul to regain it. Keep doing and that Goblin will not have time to heal.

Secret Rare Weapons

Data Drain enemies and on rare occasions, you will get a secret weapon. Each secret rare weapon lowers one or more stat parameter by -10:
Secret Rare Twin Blade: Hyakkidorran (Data Drain the Parasite Dragon) 
Secret Rare Blademaster: Jinsiran 
The best weapon is acquired by Data Draining the Parasite Dragon on the airship. It does more damage than the Bom-Ba-Ye, is less accurate, but has more skills and magic power.

Kite's Best Weapon

To get Kite's best available weapon for Part 1, Data Drain the "Mu Guardians" enough times. Eventually you will get the rare Level 14 Dual Blades. Data Drain the Mu Guardians for one of Kite's best weapons, the Bom-Ba-Yee. Data Drain a Phoenix Queen to get a very powerful Wavemaster weapon.

Blackrose's Best Weapon

The strongest weapon you can get for Blackrose or any Heavy Blade is a Blaze Sword. You can get it by Data Draining the Hell Hounds in a Level 28 to 30 Keyword, such as Voluptuous Geothermal Paradise.

Getting Items Needed For Trade

Use the following trick to get certain items needed for trade (for example, Cooked Bile). Remember a place that has the item and go there. Once you get to a place with a lot of jars or eggs/small eggs (usually a treasure box area), break everything. If you get the desired item, exit then immediately return. The jars or eggs/small eggs have been restored. Break everything again. Note: This does not mean you will get the desired item every time. Keep repeating the process until you have enough of those items to trade. You will get items that are useful, such as Healing Potions, Healing Drinks, Antidotes, Resurrects, and Restoratives. This is especially useful just before Bosses. Also, since it is free you will not want waste any money.

Upgrading Weapons Or Armor Quickly

You need to be at the 0 server and have the Grunty Flute. Go up to the portal, make sure you have the items on you and are not using them, hit "Random" a few times until you get a high field level (25 to 30) and warp. As soon as you are on the field, look for a pool symbol. If there is not one, leave. If there is, stay and pull up your menu. Go to "Key Items", then "Grunty Flute". Run to the pool symbol. With the flute, you will not run into any of the portals. Be careful, as there are some people just walking around. Check before getting off the pig thing. Go to the pool and throw in your items. He will appear and ask you what you dropped. Say "Neither". He will spin and give you better or worse items. If you save just before you do this, quit if he gives you worse items and try another area. Save the game after he gives you a better item.

Easy Master Supreme On The Zeit Statue Ranking In Root Town

Go to Root Town and put the keywords "Chronicling pagan Sunny Demon". Bring a Speed Charm and a few Fairy Orbs. To find the way in the dungeon, use Speed Charm to go faster and Fairy Orb to see your way. Go to the Zeit Statue. When at Master Supreme rank, you will get Time items.

Extreme Difficulty Field At Chaos Gate

At the Chaos Gate, choose "New Keyword" and put "Putried Primitive Melody" for extreme difficulty (battle level 17).

Thunder Cloak

Look for someone named Tim. He may be a Wavemaster wearing a green outfit. He has an item for trade called Thunder Cloak. It is a level 31 armor, and has the power to revive dead players so you will not need to use Resurrect potions all the time. It also has other powers.

Summons

A level 1 summon for each type of element can be found in dungeons level 29 and 30, for the corresponding element. They are not as powerful as level 3 magic, but they seem to not miss the targets.

Ryu Book

To get a Ryu Book, use Data Drain frequently. However, do not use Data Drain can cause some damage to you. There are only eight Ryu Books in volume one. The Ryu Books keeps a record of almost everything. It will tell you if you broke a record. It will then give you a new sound or movie for your computer on the game. Note: Movie only works the game has been completed, and all movies are just some memories of what happened. Check every Ryu Book if you got everything for the computer. If it is red, it can not create any more things for you. You can only check a Ryu Book when in the server.

Golden Axe And Silver Axe

Use the following trick to get a free Golden and Silver Axe. Go to a Monsieur level 1 and give him any moderately high level weapon or armor. When he asks you what you lost, tell him "Neither one". He will give you a Golden Axe, Silver Axe, and your weapon back.

Grunty Items

The two most annoying items to find for the Grunties are the Piney Apple at "hidden solitary white demon" and Twilight Onion at "hidden gluttonous melody".

Poison Grunty

A Poison Grunty requires four Piney Apples, three Snaky Cactuses, one Immature Egg, and eleven Golden Eggs.

Iron Grunty

The only way to get an Iron Grunty is to give the Grunty what it exactly wants, even as very Little Grunty. An Iron Grunty requires four Piney Apples, three Snaky Cactuses, and twelve Golden Eggs.

Difficult Levels

Go to the Chaos Gate then enter one of the following new keywords. "[ all data]" for Closed Oblivios Twin Hills, level 22, "Collapsed pagan march" for level 26, "Caressed silent melody" for level 26, "Quite gluttonous fiery sands" for level 24, "Lonely hot-blooded sunny demon" for level 27, and "Lonely hot-blooded melody" for level 30.

Regain SP

Walk around and your SP meter will refill. This is especially useful if you have monsters to fight next. You can just wait in an empty dungeon room until it refills.

Easy Experience

Go to "Delta, Closed Oblivious Twin Hills" to find weak enemies that give lots of experience points each. You should go there only if you are at level 20 and above.

DVD Special Keywords

The OVA that comes with the game has hidden keywords to help you. The only one that has relevance is "Chosen Hopeless Nothingness", which is where you fight the final Boss. If you turn on subtitles, you will find keywords throughout the DVD. Some include "Luscious Her Remnant", "Hideous Organ market Scaffold, and "Dog Dancing Passionate Tri Pansy". None of them are that special, but in "Dog dancing Tri Pansy", if you reach the statue of Gott at the end of the dungeon you will get an Ice Block that is used for trading.

Glitch Severity

Glitches are determined by your level of infection. If you have a low level of infection, the glitch can be in your favor or at the very least, not that crucial. If you have a high level of infection, you can expect serious repercussions such as a high loss of XP, loss of a level (!!), having HP and SP reduced to 1 etc.

Glitch Occurances

Using Data Drain will cause glitches to occur at half the infection rate. If your infection rate is at 100%, glitches will occur every other time (50% of the time) you use the Data Drain ability.
