Defeat Dark Lich the Easy Way

In many walkthroughs for SoM, they always want you to do complicated stuff when it comes to killing the second to last boss, the Dark Lich. Instead, just have a couple fairie walnuts and when the Dark Lich appears, just start pummeling him with the Lumina spell.  Right after you cast it, keep checking on when you can use another one of the girl's spells. When her spells become active again, use the Lumina again. Repeat. If the girl's MP gets low, have the Sprite use a fairie walnut on her. If all goes well, you should be able to defeat the Dark Lich without getting a scratch and before he even has a chance to do anything!

Get back into Potos

to get back into potos after you get banished, you have to have all three people alive. Walk up to the guy at the gate, keep walking into him and keep pushing select until you're on the other side. This code is cool, but useless.

Hidden Areas

The first one I found is a salesperson selling some good items in the Castle of Tansicia (is that how you spell it?). Go to the room with the bridge. You can already see him. Do this:

1. Go behind the bar.

2. You should be able to walk into a wall behind there.

3. Make your way around into the room.

4. You can still talk to the person while you're standing on the ground.

Note: This second one is completely pointless, even though it's fun. Haven't you always wanted to work at a hotel?  Here's your chance! Just do this!

1. Go to the inn at Matango.

2. Walk into the wall on the left side.

3. Make your way around to stand at the counter!

Level 9 Sword

You can get the level 9 sword without using the mana spell.

1.You need the level 8 sword and Flammie.
2.Near the Ice Palace there will be a very small island next to it. Land on it.
3.If you go up and see neko when you land talk to him and save the game.
4.Hold L, R, start, select, for about 2 seconds, which will reset the game.
5.Start a new game and keep playing until you meet the 1st Mantis boss.
6.During the battle (not when they are talking and not after you win) hold L, R, start, select, for     about 2 seconds again.
7.Select the game where you saved it at neko.
8.When you start the data you will be in the hole where the mantis boss is.
9.Kill it (which shouldn't be that hard) and you will get a power up for the sword.
10.Go to Watts and you can get the Mana Sword.

Quick End

Hold L,R, and SELECT, and hit START

Note: Do not try this more than once, it will mess up your data. Also you should make an extra data because you might mess up and then you wont be able to use the data anymore.
