- Faster party
Have your three fastest characters in your battle party formation to always get your initial turns faster. Then, just switch them out for slower characters, allowing them to go instead.
- Easier Chocobo handling
Hold L1 + L2 + R1 + R2 and your Chocobo will be easier to steer.
- Keep items in Monster Arena
When fighting in the Monster Arena, even if you die, you still keep any items you may have stolen.
- Defeating Evrae Altana
Use two or three Phoenix Downs on it to kill it instantly.
Auron: Find different Jeckt Spheres laying about the world. Some of these will give Auron a new Overdrive. You need to find all ten to get Auron’s final overdrive.
Kimari: Use the Dragon Sword ability to drain HP and MP from the enemy. If the enemy has a Blue magic skill that Kimari can learn, he will gain it automatically. The only one that is difficult to get is “Sunshine”, which you obtain from the Omega Weapon.
Lulu: Rotate the Right Analog-stick clockwise as fast as possible. The number will go up the more you rotate it. The more you level Lulu up, the easier it is to cast multiple spells.
Rikku: Rikku’s overdrive combines items to create special attacks and power-ups during battle. You have to choose any two items to combine. Note: Two of the same kind will work.
Tidus: Just keep using them over and over. After a while, he will learn his next Overdrive.
Wakka: You can win new overdrive roulette (slots) types in the Blitzball Ranking and Tournament modes.

Yojimbo: In the Calm Lands, circle past the right side of the bridge leading to Mt. Gagazet, and descend into the gorge below. To the left of the Save Sphere is the Cavern of the Stolen Fayth. Proceed through the cave until you encounter a spirit. Defeat Yojimbo and speak to him to negotiate a fee for his services.
Anima: Go to Baaj Temple with the Airship. Dive into the water and fight Geosgaeno. Defeat it and swim toward the underwater temple entrance. Approach the six statues on either side. There is one hidden item in each of Spira’s six Cloisters of Trails. You should have five of these items, now get the last one from Zanarkand Dome. Solve the puzzle there and return with the last item and get your prize Aeon.
The Magus Sisters: Capture all of the required types of fiends on Mt. Gagazet and return to the monster arena and get the Blossom Crown. You must possess all other Aeons, including Yojimbo and Anima. Next, go to Remiem Temple. Defeat Spathi, and receive the Flower Scepter. After defeating all of the Aeons at Remiem Temple, use the Blossom Brown and the Flower Scepter on the door in the back to unseal it and acquire the Magus Sisters.
At the very beginning of the game, as you head down the long road to get to the Blitzball stadium, talk to the girl running around who talks about tickets more than once. Eventually she will say that tickets are sold out, and will ask if you can get tickets for her. Tell her you can, and she will reward you with two Potions.
Near the start of the game, when you get on the S.S. Liki after getting Yuna, you should be able to explore the ship for a little bit. When you get to walk around, go downstairs. A man will talk to you about your clothes. After he is done talking, go to the only open room (on the left side) in the hallway. You should see a seasick man with his head out the window. On the far right of the screen, you should see a suitcase similar to the one Yuna was going to bring on the boat. Go up to it and press X to kick it. You will receive a Potion. Keep kicking it to get about fifteen free Potions.
When you meet Yukku on the salvaged ship, talk to the man with a gun that has a knife on it. Talk to Yukku and talk to the other person. You can only understand Yukku, but after you talk to them all you will get three Potions.

Exit the hut, and proceee to the left side of the screen. You will see a child on a pile of rubble. Press X near the child to rescue her before the rubble collapses. Proceed to the hut at the top right of the current screen for a free item from the chest.
