Skies of Arcadia Cheats For Dreamcast

  1. Demo Debug Menu (Official Dreamcast Magazine demo)

    At the game select screen, highlight Skies of Arcadia. While holding both triggers down, press start twice - DO NOT let up on the triggers. Let the demo load up while still holding down the triggers. At the seizure warning screen, (still holding triggers) hit start and then the A button two or three times. You can now let up on the triggers. You should now be at a screen that says CESA ROM Aug 8, 2000 10:13:12 and it will have a bunch of japanese text in a menu. Selecting the first set of japanese characters will take you into a screen that has japanese text on the very top, and the word scene followed by the number 103a. You can adjust the numbers by using the triggers and dpad. Left trigger increases the hundreds, right trig decreases the hundreds, with five being the highest available number. Up and down on the dpad adjust the tens and ones values, left right adjusts the letters from a to z.

  2. Avoid Random Ship Battles

    After you have your ship upgraded to fly very high/low, you can avoid battles on your ship by simply going high above/below the clouds. You may then travel anywhere on the map without battling enemies every 10 seconds.*NOTE: This applies to battle on the Deck of your ship, not Ship to Ship battles.*

  3. Secret Aika FMV sequence

    Start a new game and pass the part with Alfonso's ship, then go back to your island. Leave the underground base of Pirate Isle. Aika will say that she needs to freshen up a bit. Go to her house, then face towards the door. Go all the way to the left until you see a clothesline. In that corner you'll see - pasted on the wall of that house corner - a handkerchief. Inspect the handkerchief and you will see a hidden FMV sequence of how Aika looks with her hair down.

  4. Remove Vyse's goggle

    During battle, press right, right, left, left, up, down, up, down, right, left to remove Vyse's goggle. It will only be removed for the duration of the battle.

  5. Easy Level Up

    After you go through the Dark Rift you will be able to go back. After you finish off all the tasks and you have to go around the world, go back to the Dark Rift and go to the exit. You will see a large black Elooper which is stronger than Ramirez. Get into battle with it and automatically use Vyse's Skull Shield, Aika's Blocking Magic special, Drachma's Spirit Charge, and have Fina Focus. Repeat until you get the Prophecy crew special and use it. Keep doing this until it dies to get 7000 experience points.

Skies of Arcadia Cheats For GameCube

  1. Unlock the three secrets!

    In order to unlock the three secrets in this game you need to meet ALL of the following requirements:
    -Over 2500 kills
    -All crew members found
    -Over 12 non-storyline ship battles, including the 4 extra ''monster battles''
    -All bounties defeated and reported
    -All discoveries found and reported
    -90% or higher treasure discovery
    After this you can find the Gold Hamachou above the tunnel which connects mid-ocean to the sailor's island area, you can buy the Sky Fang from the mystery merchant, and you can go fight Air Pirate Vigoro at Crescent Island.

    (Note: many of these stats can be checked at Hamachou Island.)

  2. Avoid Random Battles

    When your ship gets the upgrade that lets it fly in the high and low altitudes in the later half of the game, you can fly in those altitudes to avoid random battles with monsters on your ship deck. Keep in mind if you're aiming to get the three secrets you're probably going to have to make up for all the battles you skipped eventually.

  3. Hidden FMV

    After you beat Alfonso's war beast and go to the surface area of Pirate Island, Aika will go home to freshen up. When you are alone, look around until you come up to a wall of a house with a handkerchief hung up. Investigate with the ''A'' button and wait.

  4. Avoid Zivilyn Bane Fights

    Clear the Dungeon to be able to go back and get the item Zivilyn Bane was after without the fight. Useful when trying to get money without battling.

  5. Secret Swashbuckler Boost

    To get a Swashbuckler boost that's not part of the storyline, talk to Alan (the kid with a green hat and green pants) on Pirate Isle right after you get Fina and are allowed to go "topside". When he asks if he can ever be an Air Pirate, choose the top option.

    Note: You have to talk to him before you play hide-and-seek with them or leave for Shrine Island.

  6. Another Secret Swashbuckler Boost

    To get another Swashbuckler boost that's not part of the storyline, talk to Lindsi (the little girl wearing a dress) on Pirate Isle just before you leave to go to Valua to rescue everyone. When given the choice, choose the top option.

  7. Remove Vyse's goggle

    During battle, press right, right, left, left, up, down, up, down, right, left in order to remove Vyse's goggle for the duration of the battle.

  8. Special Swashbuckler ranks!

    Whenever you are at the rank of King of Rouges, you can begin qualifying for a special Swashbuckler rank. They all require certain things, and when you meet a requirment for a special rank, you MUST level up your current Swashbuckler rank into it, it does NOT happen automatically. These ranks are not only for show, but also a requirement for the Three Secrets. Also, if you have more than one special rank qualifed, it will randomly choose a rank to become when you level it up. That is unless your qualified for Vyse the Legend, then it will become that.

    Note: In case you didn't read, having a special rank is REQUIRED to unlock the Three Secrets unlockable.
