Final Fantasy VIII Cheats For PlayStation

  1. Defeating Abadon easily

    If you want to kill Abadon (Disk 3) with minimal fuss, use a phoenix down or elixer on it and it will die instantly. This works with other undead enemies and bosses as well.

  2. Get Unlimited Free Potions

    You can get free Potions in Timber. Get Rinoa or Quistis in the party, then go to the bridge where you saw the guards. Keep returning until a man appears. Talk to him, then talk to him a second time to receive a Potion. Leave the screen and return until he appears again and repeat. This is good for getting gil, or just to store up for a battle.

  3. Infinite Gil

    To do this you must have the Recovery-Med RF ability and 100,000 Gil to start with. First you buy 100 tents. You then RF it into 25 Mega-Potions and sell them. You will gain your 100,000 Gil investment and an extra 25,000 Gil. This can be enhaced using Tonberry's Haggle abillity

  4. Easy escape from battle

    First off, you must have the ATB set to 'Wait'. During battle, access a menue window (Magic/Draw/Item/GF, etc) then hold down the run command (L2 & R2). The game disables enemies from attacking you since you're in 'Wait' mode, but continues to allow you to escape. This is a guaranteed escape from any escapable battle without taking damage while attempting to run.

  5. Dancing Soldiers

    In the Galbadian Missle Base mission (in control of Selphie) at the missle control panel hold square (card button), triangle (cancel button), and up on the missle select screen and the missles will change to a dancing Galbadian soldier.

  6. Alternative way to get Missable GFs

    If you missed any GF on your way through the game, you can get them during Disc Four at Ultimecia's Castle. After defeating Sphinxaur, choose to unlock the Draw ability. You'll then be able to draw te following GFs from the corresponding Bosses.

    Code Effect
    Draw from Tri-Point Siren
    Draw from Trauma Leviathan
    Draw from Red Giant Pandemona
    Draw from Krysta Carbuncle
    Draw from Gargantua Cerberus
    Draw from Catoblepas Alexander
    Draw from Tiamat Eden

  2. SeeD Test answers

    Surprised no one posted this yet, anyway here's the answers to all the SeeD tests (passing with 100% increases your rank and thus gives you more gil per paycheck) However, your rank can still go up or down based upon your actions. You can only take tests up to Squall's current level. (Obviously this isn't a problem after Level 30)
