• Duplicate Lures

    Once you have a lure rod and 2 two of the same lure (available in chapter 4 after you've recruited Olive), you can duplicate it as many times as you want to. just equip the lure rod and a lure. Then press R2 so you will have Monica displayed instead of Max. Now select the same lure and equip it as many times as you want, it will seem nothing will have happened, but you will now have multiple lures equiped and still have the one in the menu. once you remove the lures you can have up to 999 lures (don't go over 999 or it will reset the number to whatever you had before you did it) then you can sell them all for a lot of money.

  • Enable the Debug Mode Camera in Dungeons

    When you're in a normal map - i.e. a Georama - use R2 to go into first-person mode, then go to any dungeon floor by entering the menu and using Move. In the dungeon, immediately go to the menu and equip the fishing rod and exit the menu. Just like that you have glitched the camera to be much like the debug mode camera, in that you can go at any angle desired; pausing and unpausing will change the camera distance. Unequipping the rod will rectify this state.

  • Fish Cloning

    This can be done once you have an aquarium and any desired fish to clone. Once you have the fish to clone, assure it is in the first slot of your inventory outside of the aquarium. Pick it up with Square, then repeatedly use Select to sort your items menu until the aquarium is in that first slot. Then press Circle and Square in that order - you'll still be holding the fish, but a clone of it will also be in the aquarium! This can be used to clone fish to cook for healing, to sell for money (though the Lure glitch is faster), and to just making breeding a bit easier.You can also more easily win Fishing Contests as you only need to catch a big fish and clone it twice as opposed to catching three separate big fish.

  • Julia Glitch: Chapter 5 Boss

    During the first part of the Chapter 5 boss battle at the end of Mt. Gundor, while the boss runs at you and while Julia is one of your support characters, have Julia confuse the boss. The boss will glitch, and be stuck running in place, and will remain stuck until you use an attack that knocks him back. A noteworthy example of an attack lacking this knockback are the Machine Gun Arms on the Ridepod; using such attacks, you can quickly eliminate the boss's health without any risk to yourself.

  • Julia Glitch: Duplicating Self-Sacrificing Enemy Rewards

    When Julia is a support character, defeat an enemy that normally is capable of killing itself - such as the Bomber Heads in Mt. Gundor that can explode to hurt you. Once defeated, before it disappears, activate Julia's ability. From here, you can do this twice more (provided Julia has enough energy), though you have to let the enemy in question kill itself since from this point onward you cannot directly deal damage to the monster. Each time the monster dies, it will drop money and perhaps items, allowing you to duplicate the rewards you earn.

  • Name-Change Ticket Trick

    In most cases, the Name-Change Ticket only changes the name of a weapon. If you enter the name of another weapon in the game however, the ticket will actually tranform the old item. This method allows players to obtain the most powerful weapons earlier than is possible in the game and without having to build the weapon from scratch. To perform this trick, follow these steps:

    1.Recruit Mayor Need and purchase tickets (costs 40 medals each)
    2.Select an unequipped weapon in the menu and choose the option Change name
    3.Replace the old name with the name of the weapon you want to obtain. Make sure to follow correct case, spelling, spacing, etc. when applicable or it will not work. Press OK after you are done and the item will transform. Here are some of the common name choices for this trick.

    Max weapons: LEGEND,Grade Zero,Supernova,Sigma Bazooka,Last Resort
    Monica weapons: Five-Star Armlet,Island King,Dark Cloud,Muramasa,Griffon Fork,Chronicle 2

  • Use Fishing Rod Before Finishing Dungeon Floor and Never Die!

    For this glitch, you'll need to be in the field and equip the Fishing Rod. Get rid of all of Max's weapons, Lure Rod included, except for one. Use the Name-Change Ticket glitch as described previously to change the name of that lone weapon to a gun, sword, or armlet, thus giving Max no weapons other than the Fishing Rod. When you enter a dungeon, you will be able to fish at spots where you can normally fish, but you don't have to wait for the floor to be cleared of monsters. Furthermore, even though you take damage when fishing, you will not be able to die while the Fishing Rod is equipped!

  • View 3D Item Models

    Normally, viewing the 3D item model for items (bar special cases like equipment) is limited to the game's debug menu. However, if you have a Lure Rod and are willing to discard it, you can bypass this restriction. When in the item menu, pull up the stats for the Lure Rod, and then discard the Lure Rod: its stats will still be displayed onscreen however. Pick up an item and carry it to the spot where the Lure Rod was. While hovering over that slot, press Square twice, then Circle; you will have done this correctly if the Lure Rod's name is replaced by the item's name. Then equip any weapon or article of clothing and you will see the item's model. Do note that this only works one time and to do it again you'll need to procure another Lure Rod.

    Note that trying to display outfits crashes the PS2 version, and often does so for the PS4 port as well albeit with varying effects.
