When fighting in a battlefield against an enemy that can selfdestruct, make sure all but that one enemy is dead. Also, make sure your hp is low enough for the selfdestruct to kill you as well. Wait for the enemy to selfdestruct and kill both of you. The battle will end, you will gain all the experience, gp, and even the battle count will decrease, and then it will ask you to try again. Do so and repeat the previous steps until you see that you have won the prize for defeating all the enemies. Win the next battle and exit. The battlefield icon will look like one that has been cleared out and the battlefield will now say: Battlefield Round 255 of 10.

Check SNES chips' version numbers.
In the menu screen, press START and SELECT at the same time. You should then get a box telling you which version number all the chips in your SNES are. Afterwards, the text in the menu screens might act a bit wacky. Just exit the menu and enter it again to fix it.
Weird little trick for Square to put in the game, eh?

Double Level From Battlefields
Usable with any battlefield that gives Experience points as a reward.
Fight in the battlefield until you have one battle left. Then, go anywhere else, and fight enemies until your experience needed for the next level is within the range that the battlefield gives. (i.e. If the battlefield gives around 200 exp. per battle, get your needed exp. to within 200.)
Then, go back and finish the battlefield. You will gain the level with the exp. gain from the enemies, get the exp. reward, then gain another level.

This glitch will completely skip getting the fire crystal and/or getting Reuben for the first time. To start, you need your items to be in this order for consumables, Seeds, Cure Potion, Refresher and Heal Potion last. Best way to get this order set up is to get the Seed in Bone Dungeon, getting the Cure Potion right after killing the Flamerus Rex. Get the Refresher in the Ice Pyramid's first room, waiting to get the Heal Potion in the room where you get the second chest armor (It's the right chest of the bottom two.) Okay, now once you beat the Ice Golem, get the coin and make way to Fireburg and go into the Hotel. Use up the last of your seeds so none are left and talk to the npc behind the counter on the right, they sell seeds, set it to buy 0 (ZERO) seeds and accept, open your menu and you'll see the zero seeds, use one and you'll see your Cure Potions turn into the Sun Coin, the final coin to get through Doom Castle. Okay, next thing we'll want to do is talk to the person sitting at the table just to the left and up a bit, they're selling Cure Potions, you want to buy 19 and then open your menu again, actually look at your items, you'll see you've lost both coins you've collected at this point from the first two dungeons, but now, where they were, you now have the last two coins. All you have to do from here is leave fireburg, go back to the focus tower, and enter the next area. Reuben will still pop out of your ass for the little scene at the bridge, but...eh, broken game is broken.

Life Spell Glitch - US Version Only
On American versions of Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest, there is a particular glitch regarding the Life spell. Like in most Final Fantasies (and the EU/JP versions of this game), it is intended to be able to do extreme damage to undead enemies. However, a few flags got mixed up in the US versions of the game: in this version, you can use Life to kill non-undead enemies, although you can't damage undead enemies at all with this spell.

Partner has incorrect resistances/stats
When you lose a partner and gain a new one, the new partner will retain resistances from your previous partner if you never turned off the game in between. Stats are also affected, but do not remain exactly like the previous partner. The new partner will continue to have the incorrect stats and resistances until you restart the game.

Defeating Doom King Easily
Once the battle with Doom King has begun, cast Cure on him, and you'll do massive damage to the boss. You'll do about 10,000+ to him. That's an easy win against the final boss, dont you think?

Go to any town, and if you find a treasure box, open it. Go out of town, then go back in. Open the box again and the item will be available. This can be of great help when you are stocking 99 of each item.

Full HP and Status Restoration In One Turn
The Life spell has more advantages than just instantly killing undead monsters (regular monsters in the American version due to a bug). Use the Life spell to completely restore HP and cure status ailments at the same time in a single turn. This has the effect of Cure (but with full HP) and Heal in ONE TURN! A dead character is not needed to use it. The only catch is, you can only use this on one person at a time. Remember to have your partner use it if Benjamin doesn't have it yet since all partners have it.
