No random encounters for the first part of the game
There is a glitch that will freeze the random number generator so it always generates the same number.Name your hero TUT, and select a message speed of fast. Now there are no random encounters, townspeople always move south, and you never get lottery tickets from buying items. You can proceed through the game with no random encounters until the battle with the gremlins at Lianport, where the game will freeze due to lack of random numbers for the AI. Saving the game at any point ends the glitch, restoring the the random number generator to normal.
Share Weapons with Equipment Glitch
Early on in the game, you don't have much gold, and the Prince of Cannock starts out with just a club.
If you Equip a stronger weapon on the Hero, then transfer it to the Prince, you can also have the Prince equip that weapon. As long as nobody levels up or accesses the Equip menu, both party members will share the attack boost from the weapon.
The Second Water Flying Cloth
Go to Zahan, and get the Magic Loom. After that, go to the Dragon's Horn North Tower, and get the Dew's Yarn on the 3rd floor. Take these items and see Don Mahone. After you give him the items for him to make the first Water Flying Cloth, *WITHOUT SAVING*, go back to the Dragon's Horn North Tower on the 3rd floor, and search for the Dew's Yarn. It *WILL* be there. After you get the Dew's Yarn the second time, *SAVE*. After saving, turn the game off (make sure you hold in reset so you don't erase the files) and turn it back on. Go back to Don Mahone and get your first Water Flying Cloth. Now go back to Zahan and get the Magic Loom again. Take the items to Don Mahone once again, and save. Turn off the power, then turn it back on, then go back to Don Mahone, and get your second Water Flying Cloth.
(If you saved after giving Don Mahone the Dew's Yarn and Magic Loom, but DIDN'T go back to get the Dew's Yarn again, it will no longer be there. The Magic Loom however, you can get again at any time.)

There's a place in the game where you can defeat a clown and win a Staff of Thunder, which sells for 19,500 gold. Once you beat him, go sell the staff, save at the king and reset the game. When you come back, the clown will be there again, and you can get another Staff of Thunder.
Continue doing this to get as much gold as you want.

Use cursed equipment without the curse
Normally, when equipped with a cursed item (Sword of Destruction, Gremlin's Armor, or Gremlin's Tail), there is a 50% chance the person wearing the item will freeze in battle, rather than act. This is unfortunate, as the sword and armour are the most powerful in the game.
However, there is a way to gain the benefits of the items without the curse.
1. Equip the item(s). This will give you the increased attack and/or defense of the cursed item(s) and inflict your character with the curse.
2. Go to the House of Healing and pay to have the character equipping the item uncursed. This will cost 100 GP per experience level. This will remove the item(s) from your item list and remove the curse, but does NOT cause your attack or defense stat to recalculate.
3. Never again look at your equip screen for that character or gain an experience level. The game does not recalculate the character's attack or defense stats until you look at the equip screen or gain a level, so you do not lose the hefty attack or defense bonus granted by equipping the cursed item(s).
You are free to look in and use other menus, including item and status, or even save and reset, without losing the bonus. However, since leveling up recalculates your attack and defense, you may want to wait until you are ready to defeat the final boss to use this glitch, since it cannot be repeated without finding a new copy of the cursed item.

Sword of Thunder
In the cave to Rhone, on level 5, fall down a hole (any hole). Go to the lower left corner of level 4. Go one square up and one square right. You'll fall down a hole, and the sword will be right there. Best Sword in the game.

Dragon Warrior III Cheats
No Random Encounters (Japanese PRG1 Only)
This cheat is only allowed in Japanese, PRG1 versions of the game. (If you are unsure of your game version, simply try this and see if it works - if not, your game is a PRG0 version.) Hold the A Button on Controller 2 on the world map and, whilst the button is held, no random encounters will be fought.

Carrying Multiple Leaves of the World Tree
If you get the Leaf of the World Tree, use Limbo spells for the character that has it during battle. After finishing the battle, if you examine the place where the Leaves of the World Tree are, it will get it again so repeat this.

Cheat in the Monster Arena
You need the Silver Harp for this, which you find in the back of the shrine in Northwest Alefgard. Take the harp to any fight arena, and use it. Then talk to the ticket seller. You'll notice one of the monsters in the roster shows up as a blank spot. That one will NOT participate in the fight.
Bet on the monster RIGHT ABOVE the one you think will win. You will win with the monster below the one you bet on wins, and you win with the that monster's odds.
For example, say it's the Magician/Spiked Hare/Magician fight. After using the harp, it shows up as [BLANK]/Spiked Hare/Magician. If you bet on the Spiked Hare and Magician B wins, you win, with a payback based on Spiked Hare's odds.
You can really clean up on the Bomb Crag/Man Eater Chest fight. Bet on the Bomb Crag, Man Eater Chest will automatically win, and for a 300 GP bet (level 30), you will win over 60,000 GP!
Gain the first eight Hero spells without leveling up
You can obtain the first eight magic spells for your Hero at the very beginning of the game without leveling up. To do so, first go to the eatery and register enough people to fill up the entire list. Your Hero will instantly learn the first eight spells he would have otherwise learned through leveling up.
There is a negative side-effect to using this trick (Be careful!): If you haven't already learned the Heal and Return spells before using this trick, you won't be be able to use them outside of battle.
This is straightforward and easy to do:
Go to the eatery and register some soldiers. Afterwards, let them into your party and then take them out to the tool-shop and sell all of their equipment. Each soldier comes equipped with a club and leather armor, which you can sell for a total of 134 GP. You can then repeat this process as many times as you'd like.
Parry and Act
There is a bug in DW3 that lets you Parry (cuts ALL damage by 50%) and perform any action (attack, spell, item) in the same round. Simply select the parry command first, back up with the B button, and select the desired command.
NOTE 1: You cannot do this with the last character in the line.
NOTE 2: You cannod do this with the first character either, unless the first character has no magic. Put non-magic-using characters, such as a soldier, in the lead.
