Codes for Star Ocean: The Second Story
Go back to Arlia
Before defeating the final boss leave the tower and go back to fun city talk to the mysterious old man and answer yes to his question and he will send you back to get back to fun city talk to Vern Vern in Arlia and tell him he is silly.
To perform this cheat you will need Ashton in your group. When you first reach energy Nede, buy 20 Lotus Eaters meant for Ashton. Buy iron ore and make them into Orihalcum. Go to the next town and buy the instruments there. If you have bought all the instruments you can so far you should be able to learn some songs and open up the Orchestra ability. Use it to up your chances of creating the Orihalcum and when you have the 20 you need. Continue using Orchestra and customize the Lotus Eaters with Orihalcum, you will create the Melufa which sell for 1.5 million fol apiece! To make even more money use the identify all skill and sell high for more cash. Do this as many times as desired for large sums of cash flow.
Easy level gain
Early in the game, to make things easier, its best to levl off of some strong, yet able to kill monsters. When you go to Cross and get Celine head to the Cross cave and level to about 10. Leave the cave and go to the town of Mars just northeast of the Cross cave. Fighting in the forest outside of the town you will sometimes run into some hour glass creatures which give about 1,500 exp per battle. With the fol you earn after combat, buy your best equipment in Mars and also purchase the brigandine for Claude in the port town just east of Mars. Purchase the skills at the guild as well, they will come in handy to have them now. When you are about level 15 to 20, head to the mountain north west of Cross Castle. On the mountain you will fight some very strong monsters, some of which could kill your party in one hit. Recharge as often as needed, and save often, head back to Cross to heal hp/mp as necessary. You also have a high chance of obtaining the Walloon sword. A very powerful weapon for Claude this early in the game.
Increased steal chance
If you decide to get Precis in your party, she joins with the ability title machinist or something similar. Buy as many machine kits as you can from the local stores and have her use the command until she gets the magicians gloves, which has a higher steal chance than the thieves gloves.
Powerful Equipment early in the game
To get real powerful gear early in the game go to the port town of Herlie and purchase the thieves gloves at 40,000 fol a pair. Also purchase the skills from all the towns so far. To help earn more money increase the playful skill. It will help you raise money early. Also build your skills until you learn pickpocket. With one of your characters, if they don't have it already, learn the talent dexterity. When you have built your pickpocket skill to 10 and have the dexterity ability high. Save your game outside of the town of Mars and enter. Equip the Thief gloves and steal off the elder. If you fail, just reload your save. Repeat until you get the ? box. Once again step outside of town and save. Then open the box. You will get three random items. If the items are not to your liking, just reload your save. Some of the items you can get are the Force Sword or Battle armor. Far superior equipment that won't be found until disc 2 of the game.

This tip is for receiving the 'Funny Slayer' sword, before the 'Cave of Trials'. Here's how you do it, after finishing up the 'Lacour, Tournament of Arms', go to the tiny town of Salva. There you'll see a worried looking man named Raddle the Traveler. By talking to him he'll ask which way is it to Herlie. Replying 'North' will be the correct answer, and he will thank you and be off. Then, after conquering the 'Mountain Palace'. Go to the slightly bigger city of Mars. Going inside the the only store on the west side you will see Raddle the Traveler again. Talking to him will have him respond by saying that he lost his way and will ask you for directions again. Now say that Herlie is further east. Finally go and retrieve Leon, for the mission to retrieve the Energy Stone. Once you have retrieved the Energy Stone, go look around Hilton. If you have done everything I told you, you will see Raddle the Traveler. Tell him the proper direction to Herlie again. Now, in the second disk, when you go back to 'Virtual Expel', you will see Raddle the Traveler in the hotel in Herlie. He will thank you profoundly and give you a token of his gratitude. The sword will be the 'Funny Slayer'. Now you can beat the Level 6 boss with ease.
Fight the Harder Version of the Final Boss
(To do this you must have seen the private action at Clik) Save in front of the final boss and head back out the tower and go back to Central City and do a private action, then go into City Hall and you will see the same girl that was at Clik trying to warn the people about whats is going to happen. Now you can go fight the Boss. The Final boss usualy has 500,000HP but now he has 1,500,000HP! most of his spells do 9999 damage which would kill you outright. all I have to say is good luck, you'll need it. ^_^
Going to and from Ned
When you reach the final save before the last boss, save your game. Then, leave Feenal (or whatever it's called) and head for Fun City. When you get there, go to the Battle Arena. Talk to the old guy in the back of the colluseum. Answer 'yes' to all of his questions and you'll be transported back to Arlia. Feel free to explore Expel as long as you want. When you complete the Trial Cavern (or are done exploring), head back to Arlia. Next to the Item shop there's a small pen with what looks like a penguin walking around in it. Talk to it and it will say something unintelligible. You then have two options. They're something like 1) I don't understand. 2) Stupid something. If you pick the second option, the 'penguin' will send you back to Ned. If you want to return, just talk to the old guy again. Good luck!
Getting the Enternal Sphere
First get the Sharp Edge from Gamgee after the tournament of arms then use the customize speciatly and combine it with mithril and then you'll get the minus sword, then combine another piece of mithril and you'll have the Enternal Sphere (it helps to have the orchestra playing while doing this) ^_^
During the second disk after you get the Synard fly around the snowy islands and between the 2 large islands are 3 smaller ones land on the middle island and run around unitll the screen fades a way and you end up some where.
Go back to Expel
When you are about to meet the final boss save and head back out of the tower and go to fun city and talk to the old man in the battle arena and answer every question with "yes". WARNING: I haven't found a way back to Nede ^_^
Universal Difficulty Level
If you get over 45% of the voice clips, which is about 600 or so, a new 'Universal' difficulty level will open up. Enemy HP and Attack power is doubled in this mode.
Two Levels for the Price of One
You must have two items in your inventory for this to work: "Forged Medals" and the "Dream Bracelet." (I suggest reproducing medals until you have many). Equip the Dream Bracelet on the character you wish to level. Now use a Forged Medal on that character. De-equip the Dream Bracelet. After the next battle, you will gain two levels, at the cost of only one Forged Medal.
The Ring of Happiness
When you are told to go to the town of Cross for the first time,stop in Alen's house on your way through. Talk to him twice. The second time he should give you the "Ring of Happiness".
Rip Off Santa
Here is a simple cheat that will help you purchase those majorly overpriced Santa Boots 10,000,000 Fol) from Santa, the wandering merchant on the 6th floor of the Cave of Trials. First off, you have to meet him. Santa will appear randomly on Level 6, usually by the statues of the thieves so if he isn't there the first time, try leaving the dungeon and comming back. When you finally meet up with him, he will sell Sage's Stones for 50,000 Fol a piece and buy them back for 65,000 Fol. Buy 20 Sage's Stones and sell them right back to him for a 15,000 Fol profit!! Now, if you have the super specialty command Identify All, you can make a 45,000 Fol profit by buying low and selling high! I just wonder if I'll get that Eternal Sphere I wanted for Christmas?
In the demon's den there is a glass priest who asks you for the special word necessary to get the cardkey. The password is APOCA.
Hidden Dungeon Tips
The Hidden dungeon is tough and interesting at the same time. There a various enemies here that have a word in front of their name that are very tough...however, there are weapons [normally useless] that have that same word that wil kill the enemy with one hit. Example:Lvl.99 Funny Thief...pretty tough, Lvl.99 Funny Thief when someone has the Funny Slayer...one hit kill. On the sixth level, there will be a man who occasionally appears in the statue room. He sells very rare stuff, including all the rare metals, the real tri-emblem [not the fake "emplem"], and items that can teleport you out of the dungeon....for you see, there are no save points, so if you are on level 13 of the dungeon and die, your screwed, so you must leave to save on occasion, and when you re-enter there will be methods of going down quickly, such as a trap door. The dungeon also contains very powerful equipment, including [but not limited to] The Levantine Sword, Ashton's ultimate attack, Leon's ultimate attack, Celine's ultimate attack, the angel armband,several pair of bunny shoes, and the valiant armor. As far as monsters go, from around level 3 onward, you may run into boss class monsters as normal fights...you can even run into the last boss of the dungeon as a normal enemy, so be careful.
Save in front of the last boss, and leave the final dungeon. Proceed to fun city and talk to the old man in the back area of the colusseum. Say yes to all his questions, and you'll be transported back to expel, in Arlia. You'll notice two important things that are different: 1.There is a penguin walking around where you appear, talk to him and call him silly, he'll kick you back to Nede. 2. When you leave, there will be a Synard waiting for you. Hop on it and head to the area you couldn't access without it, the dungeon should be glowing with a red dot. Land and enter. The special dungeon is very tough, much harder than the regular last Dungeon...in fact, you'll start out fighting harder enemies than you saw in the normal last dungeon on the very first floor.
Easy Skill Level Gain
For an easy way to level up skills, you need to level up the perserverance skill to level 10. After you do this, leveling up the other skills will be much easier. For example making it where you can level up most skills with just one Skill Point.
When you get your Super Specialty Skill "Master Chef" up to level 6 or higher, go to a store that sells fruits, vegetables, and egg/dairy products. But 20 of each, then go to Super Specialty Skills and choose "Master Chef" in the item screen, then pick 1 fruit and 1 dairy. Every other try or so (depending on your skill level) you should create "Coconut Milk" which sells for overy 1000 Fol a piece!! You can also take 2 vegetables and make "Fried Vegetables" which sells for over 2000 Fol a piece!
Keep creating the food until you run out of ingredients then go sell everything you created, buy more ingredients and do it again until you have the desired amount of money you want.
Easy Level Up
Use Reverse Side to make a forged medal, and then duplicate it as many times as you want to with Reproduction. The forged medals bring a character to 1 point under a level up.
When you learn the super specialty skill "Orchestra", and have enough songs and instruments for each character, use this skill and for a short time, you will be able to create items without the necessary talents. (For Example: cooking without the talent "Sense Of Smell".) While the song is playing, you will have the chance to learn a new talent by using your specialty skills. (For Example: While the orchestra song is playing, use the cooking "Machinery" skill to learn the talents Dexterity and Sense of Design.)
Become Extremely Powerful in a Relatively Short Time
There are several methods to become very powerful that are available quite early in the game, here are a few.
1.In the beginning of the game, there is a mountain dungeon that isn't meant to be faced until much later, thusly the enemies will raise your characters' levels VERY quickly. At first they'll kick your butt, but with every victory you eke out, you'll become stronger [kitchen knife skill makes things easier here, btw] you can build your characters to 3000 hp levels here with some work.
2.Make sure you learn pickpocket [poker face and courage skills] and save up 40,000 bucks. Make your way over to Clik harbor and purchase a thief's glove. Now you can go on a world stealing tour, and get many things. Very notably, there is a man in Mars who carries a treasure box, which when used will dispense three random items. Once you get it, save your game and open it until you get what you want. Though it usually gives you items and such, it occasionally gives you VERY powerful weapons including the Force Sword, the Sorceress Knuckle, and the very rare and powerful Marvel Sword.
3.Later in the game, in the colusseum, the A-class battle earns you right around 100,000 exp, and allows you to quickly build levels until about level 105 [note: Level 90 is adequate to beat the limited version last boss]
4.On one of the snowy islands near Giveaway, there is a shop that sells magical rasp, which allows you to create the most powerful weapons and armor in the game.
