Final Fantasy V Cheats For PlayStation
Unlimited Weapons (and GP)
This glitch allows you to steal 255 of a weapon from an enemy in one shot... The only downside is it must be a weapon that can be thrown with !Throw command.All right, you'll need a Ninja and a Thief in your party.
You'll also need to find an enemy who has a weapon worth stealing. Once you've found such an enemy, you must rid your inventory of that weapon, so the glitch will work properly. Finally, go to the Item menu and leave the first slot empty (just switch the top item with a blank slot).Now go Equip, and Remove the thief's weapon. Time for battle!As the battle begins, your Thief will get the first move. Choose Item, choose his weapon (in the first slot), and then equip it in his right hand. When the Ninja's turn comes up, choose Throw, and 'throw' the blank first slot, where the Thief's weapon was.
Oddly, the game will let you throw this blank slot (sometimes it says M5), but it does 0 damage. No worries... On the Thief's next turn, steal from the enemy so you get the weapon you've been wanting. Now on the Ninja's next turn, Throw this newly-acquired weapon (it will be in the first slot) at the enemy.
Now kill the enemy with any method, if the throw didn't already kill him.Next time you check your item inventory, you'll see 55 of the weapon you stole. In reality, you now have 255 of the weapon, which you can sell for GP, or keep to save time on that perfect save.I've found that sometimes in using this glitch to get MythrilSword from the Ice Soldier, I end up with 99 instead of 55 of the weapon. I don't know the reason for this, but MythrilSword can be sold for about 450 GP apiece, which is profitable.I realize this all sounds confusing, but follow the instructions and it will work. I'm playing the PSX version of Anthology, so I don't know if it'll work on the original. Cheers

Beat Ex-Death without fighting the final form
Using the !Mix command from the Chemist Job class, you can create an item called the "Kiss of Blessing" by combining a Maiden's Kiss and a Holy Water. This item inflicts unblockable Berserk, Haste, and Image. Here's the catch; not even bosses can block this. If you use this on Ex-Death's first form, then proceed to kill him, he will die without being engulfed by the void and just fade away like a normal boss. After a few seconds of nothing, the ending will suddenly start playing without ever fighting Neo Ex-Death. (Please note: I have not tested this on anything other then the PS1 Anthology collection.)

Alternate Tycoon Castle Scene
In world one when you get the Hiryuu ( Dragon ) you have access to Tycoon Castle. If you go, there's a scene involving Leena and Faris where Leena suspects Faris may be her long lost sister, Sarisa, and Faris denies it. But, if you wait until after you get the airship it's an entirley different scene involving Leena's childhood.

Defeat Catastrophe easily
Before the battle with Catastrophe, equip a Wall Ring on one of your characters, and cast Float on that same character. Then, go into the battle. Whenever one of your characters is Floating, Catastrophe will always use Gravity100 to ground that character. However, because that character has a Wall Ring, the attack will be reflected back at him. He will continue to use Gravity100 for the entire battle, allowing you to use any attacks you need to beat him without the fear of being killed.

Learn your game stats
Take your airship slightly south of the Town of Karnak and submerge underwater. Enter the cave you see and talk to the man inside. He claims to be a psychic and will tell you how many battles you have fought, the number of enemies you've killed, your party's average experience, the percentage of the game's treasure you have collected, and the number of times you have saved your game.

Vampire Healing Glitch
In this game, there is a particular Blue Magic spell known as Vampire: it is essentially a Drain spell, in which you damage the target to heal your own HP. If you use it on yourself, though, you are instantly healed to full HP.

Ancient Library Warping Glitch
This glitch is able to occur when the two worlds of the game have merged after you go through Ghido's Cave and done the events in the Library of the Ancients. At the latter, if you use Teleport after all the cutscenes there are done, you'll find yourself at Ghido's Cave rather than the Library. This will allow you to travel around the world on Boko as you can now head towards Tycoon Castle. You can also skip the Pyramid of Moore sequence for the time being: while you do have to do it eventually, you are able to skip it for now and thereby further optimize your party.The most important benefit, however, lies in the ability to now access the Mirage Village early to buy powerful equipment, magic, and items. In addition to the Mirage Village, you can also access a number of areas early, such as the Phoenix Tower and the Sealed Castle (where you can earn three of the legendary weapons), and also regain the Black Chocobo.

Kiss of Blessing Mix Bug
The Mix "Kiss of Blessing" can be made with a Maiden's Kiss and a Holy Water, and in turn grants Image, Haste, and Berserk to the target. However, due to poor coding, the Berserk effect will be unblockable: this means it can affect anyone, even bosses, who are normally immune to Berserk. This in turn is highly abuseable because Berserk will force the afflicted foe's battle routines to simply "Attack", getting rid of any particularly annoying side-effects or highly powerful moves, and also make it easier for one to prevent damage by simply throwing up Protect.However, note that it is unwise to do this in the solo battle between Galuf and Exdeath. Aside from this, any boss battle is made simpler: in fact, even the final boss battle can be skipped as you will only need to kill the first form and not the second form of the boss.

255-Item Duplication Glitch
This glitch will allow you to quickly duplicate items such that you can have 255 (read as "55") of an item; due to its restrictions, it only works on hand-equipped items. Also, note that you will need the ability Throw (Ninja), as well as Steal or Mug (Thief). With the first character being a Ninja or Thief, have them be able to use Throw and Steal (or Throw and Mug). Unequip this character of whatever is in their hands; whatever is unequipped by them, or can be equipped, should then become the first (top-left) slot in the items menu. Enter a random battle where the monster(s) have items you wish to steal an infinite number of items from.First have the Thief/Ninja from before equip the first item in your item inventory: whether it is a weapon or shield is irrelevant. Then have the character with the Throw command throw the first item in your inventory, which should be a blank. (If the initially-thrown item cannot be Thrown, such as a shield or armor, Throw this blank twice, but otherwise only do it once.) After doing so, Steal/Mug the target of Throw to steal an item, then Throw the item (if possible). After, end the battle in any desired way. In the field, return to the inventory and you'll notice that you'll have "55" (255) next to the name of the stolen weapon, or 99 if the item was non-Throwable. As long as this item is never moved from this slot - through manual sorting or the Sort command - or other copies ever bought, you can indefinitely sell this item for massive amounts of money (although you'll be selling them one at a time). And, of course, there's also the benefit of cloning unique equipment so that multiple characters can equip the same piece.

Easy Walse Castle Basement Looting Glitch
This works only on the Gameboy Advance version of Final Fantasy V. After so many steps, you are automatically thrust into battle. However, if you quicksave, exit and continue, the step counter is reset. If you take only 5 steps, a few more if you're feeling risky, save and load, you can get all the treasures and get out without encountering a single Jackanapes. Like this, you don't have to run if you are going for the Brave Blade and you do not have to encounter the Jackanapes on your first visit to the castle.

No forced runs from Chicken Knife
The weapon Chicken Knife has a "special" ability to force the user to run away from battle every now and then. But, there is a way to trick the game into NOT activating this effect while still using this powerful weapon.1. You must be a Ninja, Thief with Dual-Wield, OR Freelancer with Dual-Wield.
2. Equip the weapon Twin Lance in your right hand. (Twin Lance is a Ninja/Thief exclusive weapon)
3. Equip the weapon Chicken Knife in your left hand.Because Twin Lance has the inherent ability to attack twice, you will be attacking a total of three times with this setup. However, the game is tricked into thinking that all the attacks have already been performed, so it does NOT check the Chicken Knife's special ability when it is the third attack. Remember, Twin Lance must be in your RIGHT hand, not left hand, or this will not work.

Easy Mover Encounter
In the last floor of the Rift, you may encounter a group of three Movers. Altogether they yield 199 AP and 150,000 Gil--making them long-sought. However, they have a relatively low encounter rate meaning that one might go on without encountering any Movers for a long time. However, there is a way to induce an encounter with them--first, you must be in the place where you can encounter them. Next, you have to encounter the Movers (the hardest part of this exercise). Then, once you've defeated them, quicksave and reload. This should take a couple of seconds. Move around a bit and enter a battle--it'll be against a group of enemies. After that battle, move around and enter another battle--this time, you should encounter three Movers. After the battle, repeat the process and you should get an encounter with Movers on your second battle every time. The Zeningage skill (Gil Toss) skill is recommended on killing both groups of enemies, and Movers should provide you with an infinite source of cash and AP.

Skip Final Boss's Second Form
The final boss in this game normally has two forms: if you kill the first, you are supposed to go to the second directly for another battle. However, there is a way to bypass this: you will need to kill the first form with Chaos Cannon. Chaos Cannon is a Mix from the Chemist class, made with Blitzshot and Dark Matter. So long as that attack kills the first form of Exdeath, the battle ends outright.
