Condensed Rage Guide 3.9

By Skoobouy <skoobouy at hotmail dot com>

Compiled and useful
for Final Fantasy III for the Super Nintendo
or Final Fantasy VI for the Sony Playstation.

*** Introduction

Gau is a skinny kid with a mullet who managed to spend his whole life eating
grass on an African flatland without so much as getting a tan or growing 
any stubble. But don't make him mad, because he will UWAAOOO all over you, and 
you don't want that to happen. Believe me, you just don't. Don't even ask me 
what it means. It's too horrible.

Anyway, his skill, Rage, is powerful but intimidatingly large, so I wrote this
guide to make it less intimidating. This guide is not really for beginners,
so I do not use much space to explain basics or plot-points. It is pure data.
Almost. I wax poetic sometimes.

*** Other Rage Resources (and their specific contributions)

The Rage Guide by Djibriel:
Source of better information about NightShade|Charm; the Muted Intangir
strategy; Flare Star; useful Rages; and Tyranosaur|Meteo. Also, contains
exhaustive information about Rage/Veldt/Equipment/Status mechanics, glitches,
and so on; recommendations for equipment, boss strategies, and many other
surprising facts. (Added to v. 3.5: info on Gau's default Rages, getting
Anguiform and Aspik before the MRF, some advice on Rages with the same skills
but better stats, and info on obtaining Flame Shlds).

Algorithms FAQ V 1.6 by Terii Senshi (teriisenshi at aol dot com):
Numerical details and correct spelling for all of the Rage skills.

(In)Complete List of Monsters 3.0 by Garry Dobson:
A very thorough Rage by Order of Apppearance list. Helpful!

FF3us Monster Stats Guide 1.1 and
FF3us Attack Guide v1.1 by Master ZED (cytekzed at aol dot com):
Correct spellings of monster names, accurate locations, filled in nasty gaps
of information like Virite, Flare Star, and Shock, and immense help for the 
Lore Locations Chart. Also special thanks for suggestions for improvement, and
info about Veteran and Tempest.

I. All the Best Rages with a Minimum of Fuss

Don't get every Rage. Seriously. Just don't do it. Look, I'm a completionist,
too, but completionism only makes sense if it offers some kind of reward,
right? Right? *Sigh* OK, if you want to be obsessive-compulsive about it, skip 
down to CHAPTER II and take note of any monster with a (¹) next to it. Those
are the ones that are easy to miss. Djibriel's Rage Guide has more thorough
information on strategies for acquiring those Rages (especially Red Mag Roader)
so I direct completionists his way.

This section concerns itself with the cream of the crop, and even then, it is a
little inflated. IMO, a short Rage list is a happy Rage list, and the less time
I have to hear the Veldt song, the happier I am.

A. WORLD OF BALANCE: From Narshe through the Phantom Train

Here are a few tips you will want to keep in mind as you play. First, you might
want to try and maximize the formations of monsters you want, and minimize 
battles with monsters you don't want. This will greatly ease your Veldt 
hunting. Second, battles that you run away from WILL appear on the Veldt. 
Third, I recommend choosing Sabin's scenario SECOND (after the Terra scenario) 
because Locke's scenario has no noteworthy Rages, and will only clutter the
Veldt cycle. Of course, Terra's scenario houses Dark Side|Ice 2, and we want

Now, let's look at the cream of the crop for the first part of the game:

     Great Rages           Awsome Rages       (Gau's Default Rages)
   Cirpius|Haste 2        Marshal|Wind Slash        Lobo|Tusk
Primordite|Numblade       Areneid|Numb          Were-Rat|Poison
  Pterodon|Fire Ball       Rhodox|Snare       M-TekArmor|Tek Laser
   Templar|Fire 2         Trilium|Bio             Hornet|IronNeedle
   Telstar|Sonic Boom   Dark Side|Ice 2        Rhinotaur|Mega Volt
                        Stray Cat|Catscratch     Brawler|Stone
                            Hazer|Bolt 2         Exocite|Scissors
                             Bomb|Blaze       Trilobiter|PoisonBarb
                        Over-Mind|Elf Fire       Whisper|Demi

-Rhodox|Snare will be your premier instant death attack for a long time,
 especially because it stops enemies from retaliating against a successful hit.
 This also makes it your one-stop Intangir killer.
-Fire Ball looks pretty (especially when there are lots of enemies), but I
 demoted it from "Awesome" to "Good" because, between Elf Fire, Blaze, and Wind
 Slash, you will likely never use Fire Ball.
-Numb and Numblade are exactly the same. Primordite protects against Imp and is
 weak against Bolt instead of Water and Ice. If you get one, you don't need the
 other one. 
-Telstar protects from everything except Slow and Stop.
-Hazer has protection from instant death.
-Blaze looks pathetic, but it's actually stronger than Fire 2--hence Templar's

Easily Missed Monsters:
-Dark Side will only appear if you DON'T follow the sparkly thing through the
 cave in Banon's scenario. Don't leave until you see Dark Side. Try to get
 both formations!
-Telstar is a Monster-in-a-Box in a tent to far lower left of your entry into
 the Imperial Base.
-Over-Mind is a somewhat rare monster found only inside one train cars of the
 Phantom Train: the one housing the switch to detach the cars (c.f., Djibriel's

B. WORLD OF BALANCE: From the Serpent Trench to Zozo

This is where the game REALLY begins. Marshal and Stray Cat are strong, but 
they will be piddly compared to the glory that awaits you. If you're willing to
walk a long way, you can teach Gau any Rage up to Zozo monsters BEFORE going to
the Magitek Research Facility. Before doing anything, you can get 
Anguiform|Aqua Rake and Aspik|Giga Volt, which together make the Research 
Facility a walk a field of daisies. Walk all the way south of Narshe, through 
Figaro Cave, over Mt. Kolts, through the Returner's Hideout and Lete River, 
over to Nikeah to buy a chocobo, all the way down the eastern continent, to the
Veldt. Once you have your Rages, hop into the Serpent Trench back to Nikeah, 
sail to South Figaro, and go back through Figaro Cave to resume your quest.

However, as an editorial point, I strongly recommend holding off on your second
Veldt visit until after you complete the Zozo quest. Aspik and Anguiform are 
not vital before that point (story completionists won't even use Gau), and if 
you wait, you will be rewarded with the following Rages, with less Veldt 

     Great Rages           Awsome Rages            "Upgrades"
Hadesgigas|Magnitude8   Anguiform|Aqua Rake   SlamDancer|Ice 2
                            Aspik|Giga Volt

-None of these monsters are hard to meet.
-Lots of strong multi-enemy attack spells here; Magnitude8 is great, and Aqua
 Rake can take care of fliers, not to mention whole armies of wind-weak
 Imperial sissies.
-SlamDancer|Ice 2 has the simple advantage over Dark Side|Ice 2 of not giving 
 the Rager Undead or Seizure status.

C. WORLD OF BALANCE: After the Magitek Research Facility

Once you escape from the Magitek Research Facility, you have control of the
airship! Thus, before we take our most important jaunt to the Veldt, it 
behooves us to visit a few interesting friends. First, fly to the continent 
east of the Veldt (where Thamasa is), and search the forests for both 
formations of Chimera. Chimera is tough, so don't be afraid to run away if you
must. While you are there, have Locke steal four Gaia Gears from the Baskervors
in the plains--I will explain shortly (and thanks to Djibriel for the tip)!

Next, fly to the unofficially named Triangle Island to the far northeast. 
Intangirs be here! Use that Rhodox Rage I told you about, and you're done for 
now. Fly to the Veldt.

     Great Rages           Awsome Rages            "Upgrades"
    Wyvern|Cyclonic    ChickenLip|Quake          Chimera|Aqua Rake
    Rhinox|Life 3         General|Cure 2
  Intangir|Pep Up

-For some real shenanigans, have a character learn "Float" from Stray (obtained
 in Zozo), Float your characters, and commence Quaking whenever you can.
 Otherwise, equip those Gaia Gears you "treasure-hunted," and Quake will heal
 all your non-floating party members (note Edgar and Cyan cannot equip Gaia
 Gear without a Merit Award). You'll be the most violent Quaker there ever was.
-Chimera combines an awesome skill with protection from status ailments and
 from instant death.
-If you cast Mute on the Rager before Raging Intangir, you have a Hasted, Safe, 
 Shelled, Clear, Floated, 'Ribboned', element-absorbing behemoth of a character
 (but not protected from Slow or Stop). Intangir|Pep Up is also the easiest way
 to teach Strago the Pep Up Lore, which I am sure you are DYING to do (hur 

D. WORLD OF BALANCE: The Sealed Gate and the Floating Continent

I presume you will want to visit the Veldt sometime between the Sealed Gate 
scenario and your first romp through the Floating Content, but there are not
enough interesting Rages between them to divide these sections. 

Gigantos, Behemoth, and Ninja come from the Floating Continent. While the first
two are nothing to have puppies over, Ninja|Water Edge is literally the cutting
edge in multi-target damage. Too bad it will soon be horribly outdone by Aero.

     Great Rages           Awsome Rages            "Upgrades"
   Zombone|Condemned        Ninja|Water Edge    Gigantos|Magnitude8

-Zombone|Condemned is the fastest way to teach Strago the Lore, Condemned.
-Aqua Rake takes a back seat to Water Edge for flying monsters from here on;
 but you might still consider Chimera|Aqua Rake for its superior protection
 from status ailments and instant Death.
-Gigantos, unlike his "little" brother Hadesgigas, gives Protect status.

D. WORLD OF RUIN: From the Solitary Island to the Daryl's Tomb

With small variations, the first half of the World of Ruin is basically linear.
You'll likely come across all of these beasties without even thinking about it,
although to be safe, make sure you don't leave the Solitary Island without
watching an Earthguard starve to death.

     Great Rages           Awsome Rages            "Upgrades"
Earthguard|Big Guard      Peepers|Pearl Wind  
  Buffalax|Slow 2      Gilomantis|Shrapnel
 Mad Oscar|Sour Mouth     Harpiai|Aero
      Orog|Pearl       PowerDemon|Flare
                         Mesosaur|Step Mine

-Mesosaur|Step Mine ought to be a favorite weapon, since it has all of the
 benefits and none of the drawbacks of Stago's Lore of the same name. To get
 the damage up to 9999, you have to walk 319,968 steps, and there's no worry
 about MP. Here's an easy way to do it: at any time when it's convenient, go to
 Jidoor and walk into it from the left. Continue walking, and you will exit the
 city, and then immediately re-enter. Now tape the D-pad down, and with Sprint
 Shoes, your mad little pilgrimage will be over in about 15 hours. (Thanks to
 Xuxon in the GameFAQs forums for this tip).

E. WORLD OF RUIN: Miscellanious Quests

The World of Ruin after getting the Airship is your leisurely smorgasbord of 
positively awsome Rages. Go ahead, be a glutton, go after the best Rages first.
If you're too weak to beat a monster, run away! It will still appear on the 
Veldt. Use this for toughies like Tyranosaur if they tenderize you into 

     Great Rages           Awsome Rages            "Upgrades"
  Punisher|Bolt 3      Nightshade|Charm          Vectaur|Pearl Wind
SrBehemoth|Fire 3       Magic Urn|Cure 3      Evil Oscar|Bio
    Woolly|Ice 3       Tyranosaur|Meteo  
  Luridian|Land Slide       Mover|Merton 

Notes on Skills:
-Veteran|Roulette and Nightshade|Charm are two very broken skills; the former
 is an unblockable death spell; the latter is a permanent, universal "Muddle"
 that can be cast on one monster at a time. Sick, is all I have to say.
-Replace your dilapidated Trilium Rage with Evil Oscar--same delicious Bio
 skill, exciting new element-absorbing package! (except fire).
-Use Vectaur instead of Peepers for Pearl Wind, because Seizure = bad.
-Which of Gau's offensive Rages is best? Depends on the context. 
  1. If you need to and can, exploit enemy elemental weaknesses with Bolt 3,
     Ice 3, Quake, Pearl, or Bio.
  2. Failing that, do a Merton+Flame Shlds combo (esp. if the critter has a
     weakness to fire/wind). Buy Falchions in Jidoor and bet them at the
     Colliseum for Flame Shlds to equip your whole party.
  3. If Merton's fire and wind elements work against you, resort to Meteo or
     Shock for multiple enemies, or Land Slide for one as it is less likely to
  4. Or just use Meteo constantly, 'cuz it's METEO AND TI ROX0R5!1!! (Glee!) :3


II. Chart of Rages by Monster Order of Appearance

This chart lists monsters by rough order of appearance; not only can you know
everything about a particular Rage, but also generally where to find it. Read

"interlude," which discusses the best Rages from the group, easy-to-miss
monsters, little strategy-ets, and other dribs and drabs.

D. WORLD OF RUIN: From the Solitary Island to the Daryl's Tomb

Note: The World of Ruin is linear until you get the new airship after Daryl's
Tomb. Following the advice of NPCs will carry you to Maranda and Mt. Zozo;
after that, the obvious choice is to plunder the Veldt Cave. However, with the
world being your Rage oyster, I'll be conservative and guess that you picked up
Gau right after the Tomb. If you do nothing else after that, here are the new
monsters you will see.

E. WORLD OF RUIN: Miscellanious Quests

Well, from this point on, kindly disregard all semblance of order. There is
no "before" and no "after" - lies, lies and chicanery, all of it! Whatever
punishment your party can withstand--that quest is yours to complete, within
limits (e.g., you have to get through Ruined Narshe before you go through
Umaro's Cave).

The game does make suggestions, though. Messenger Pigeons inspire Celes to
tell you to go to Maranda, where another pigeon directs you to Zozo, where Cyan
mentions Gau and the Veldt, etc. That is that order listed here. If you follow
it, you won't have the best Rages--like Tyranosaur|Meteo--until the end of the
game. Not good! So anyway, here it is.

CHAPTER III: Chart of Rages by Skill

A. Damage-Dealing Special Skills

These Rages are nothing more than attacks with different strengths and their
own names. They aren't very exciting, but look out for Catscratch. The Level
numbers operate in the following way:

Damage = (Normal 'Fight' Damage) + 
([Normal 'Fight' Damage] x [Special's Level / 2])

Skill       Level  Power   Monster
Bite        1      1.5x    Vector Pup, Doberman, Bounty Man
Catscratch  6      4x      Stray Cat
Clamp       1      1.5x    Actaneon
Critical    1      1.5x    Guard
Gouge       3      2.5x    Gold Bear
Husk        1      1.5x    Cephaler
Incisor     1      1.5x    Leafer
IronNeedle  1      1.5x    Hornet
Knife*      14     8x      Pugs
Oogyboog    2      2x      Bogy
Pounce      2      2x      Fidor
Rush        4      3x      Red Wolf
Scissors    1      1.5x    Exocite
Scratch     1      1.5x    Wild Rat
Swing       2      2x      Trooper
Tackle      1      1.5x    Ralph
Tail        1      1.5x    Sand Ray
Tusk        1      1.5x    Lobo

* - Cannot be normally obtained.

B. Status-Causing Special Skills

These Rages look like attacks, but cause no physical damage. Instead, they
inflict a status effect. They are much more reliable than their magical

Skill        Effect   Monster
Bane Touch   Poison   Over Grunk
Cling        Slow     Poplium
Duster       Poison   Beakor
Face Bite    Blind    Lunaris
Heart Burn   Seizure  Crawly
Ink          Blind    Nautiloid
Numb         Stop     Areneid
Numblade     Stop     Primordite
PoisonBarb   Poison   Trilobiter
SleepSting   Sleep    Mind Candy
Wing Whisp   Bserk    Insecare

C. Magic Skills

These Rages take the form of traditional Magic, Lore, or various enemy skills
which only Gau can use. For easy comparison and selection, they are organized
as follows:

Attack Spells         Status Spells         Healing Spells
  Single Target         Enemy Targets         Single Target
  One or All Targets    Ally Targets          Multiple Targets
  All Targets


Pwr - Power; Non-damage-dealing spells and spells whose "Pwr" does not reflect
      their actual strength are n/a.
Hit - Hit Rate; unblockable skills are n/a.
El -  Element of attack, as follows:
      f - Fire            p - Poison          e - Earth
      i - Ice             a - Air/Wind        w - Water
      b - Bolt/Lightning  h - Holy/Pearl      - - Non-elemental or n/a

I -   Ignores Defense; sometimes means that a skill is very powerful, but
      sometimes refers to healing or to a special mode of damage
      calculation. Non-damage-dealing spells are n/a ("/").
U -   Unblockable; these skills won't miss except in cases of enemy immunity.
      Untargetted spells are n/a ("/").
N -   No Split Damage; these spells do not become less effective when cast on
      multiple enemies at once. Single target and non-damage-dealing spells are
      n/a ("/").

APPENDIX: On Tempest

As noted in Master Zed's Attack Guide, Cyan's Tempest sword has one really
cool effect: when combined with Rage skills, it makes them unblockable, and
distributes them to all enemies. Catscratch, NumbBlade, and other skills
suddenly become WAY more powerful than they were ever intended. Obviously,
Cyan cannot use Rage. Solution? Merit Award! Unfortunately, Square blocked Gau
from equipping the Merit Award in the PlayStation versions of Final Fantasy
VI. Solution? Gogo! Yes, our favorite Mime can be a Doma-Retainer-Sword-
Wielding-Wild-Boy-of-the-Veldt in a matter of seconds.

If you ask me, this is cheating. It's no different than Psycho-Cyan, Vanish-
Doom, Relm-Sketching for Ragnaroks and $$$, or other things. Don't get me
wrong; I have no morals against cheating. But I don't think this tactic will
get you far in the Low-Level-Game or Natural-Magic-Game circles.
