Damage Storage Glitch
This does not work for Max while he has a beam gun equipped. When in a dungeon, attack with your melee weapon (hammer/wrench/sword), and as it touches the ground, press L1 to cancel the attack and quickly open the menu. If performed correctly, you should see some sort of streak of light near your character, leftover from the attack. Switch your long-range weapon (gun/brassard) or view a help video, then exit the menu. Going forward, simply running into enemies will be sufficient to damage them. Depending on how many attacks you store, you will be able to hit a given enemy that many times. (Store 3 attacks like this and all enemies can suffer damage 3 times each from running into them, for example. You can store up to 63 attacks: any more and you will not be able to damage foes, nor they you.)
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.
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.
Out of Bounds (using Angel/Devil Coins)
To be able to go out of bounds, you must find an Angel/Devil Coin that has spawned near one of the dungeon's boundaries: bottomless pits are usually great for this, and depending on the dungeon walls will also work, though this does not appear to work in the Moon Flower Palace. This is most easily done when you have the Baron Balloon or Skeleton Soldier Monster Transforms available.
With either monster, walk along the boundary towards the Coin, as if trying to squeeze the two. You'll be prompted with a message; exit out of it, but do not let go of the analog stick. Provided that the Coin was close enough to the boundary, you should be pushed out of bounds. Once out of bounds, walking too far in a given place can result in you falling through the bottom of the map and warping to the top; you can walk around as you fall as well, which leads to any number of potential other benefits and sequence breaks. (For example: you could get inside the Star Path force fields long before Chapter 6, or fish in the early parts of Starlight Canyon where it's normally impossible.) Note that depending on where and how you do this, you might end up stuck and be forced to leave the dungeon.
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.
