Alpha Mission Cheats
Quickly press A, B, Up, Down, B, A, Right and Left at the game over screen.
Normally if you defeat Area 12 boss, it will display Area 13 then say Area 1. There is a playable Area 1. What you must do is defeat the boss very quickly. Area 13 consists of the first 5 bosses in a row then an entirely playable Area 6/12. Defeat this boss and everything is back to normal with Area 13 displayed followed by Area 1 unless "I assume" you were lucky to find another Thunder and cream the Area 13 boss again.
Item Location Area 13 Defeat Area 12 boss with Thunder in 3 hits.
Skip Area 5 boss/Area 6
You don't actually skip Area 6 but if you gather both Warp (W) icons in Area 5 then you skip the boss altogether and end up in Area 6 without being told. Defeating this boss takes you to Area 7.
Get Ultimate Weapons
In the first level, look for the first small mushroom, get on top of it, and duck down. You'll get the ultimate sword, shield, helmet, and armor.

Cheat Mode (Japan-only)
Press and hold A and B on Controller 1, then turn the console off and on again. After, during gameplay, access the status screen via Start and press A on Controller 2. This enables very quick movement. Press any D-Pad button for invulnerability, all items, all equipment, and max (255) MP as well.
Pause the game
To pause the game, press B on the second controller.
While playing, hold A + B on Controller 1, then press A on Controller 2 to cycle between 16 locations from the game.
First, move the cursor in a shop above or below the item you wish to buy - whichever item you hover over preferably should have a cheaper cost than the item desired. Then press Up or Down on the D-Pad (towards the desired item) and the A Button at exactly the same time - you should buy the item you wanted, at the cost of the item you hovered over!
Level Charge Glitch
First, you must equip a sword that can charge to the second level, as well as the ball to go along with it. Hit Select and bring up the menu again, then swap to a sword that cannot charge to the second level. Keep the menu up and save the game, then reset - the newly-equipped sword will then be able to charge to the second level!
Rabbit Boots Glitch
If you use the Rabbit Boots, normally you can jump, but there's a special glitch involving the dolphin and these boots. If you were to get on and get off the dolphin while jumping with these equipped, you could hit the water, and in turn fly over the water. This glitch can be used, for example, to skip the Evil Spirit Island sequence.
Guerrilla War Cheats
