Cheats & Guides

Ys III: Wanderers from Ys Cheats For Super Nintendo

  1. Debug Code

    Turn the game on and wait for the Sammy logo to fade completely in. Quickly press Up, Down, Up, Down, Select, Start on Controller 2. Start a new game or select any file. Press Select on Controller 1 to bring up the sub-menu and choose "Status". Then press Select on Controller 2 and the word "DEBUG" will appear next to "STATUS". This puts the game into Debug Mode. Every time Adol's life meter is depleted, it will automatically refill, thus making him invincible. All areas on the overworld map will also be unlocked.

    In addition to this, pressing Left and Right on Controller 2 will freeze the action and cause Adol to slide left and right. If an enemy was on-screen at the time, the enemy will slide along with him. However, no new enemies will show up until Adol's movement is stopped. Stopping will make any preset enemies for that area appear, but any enemies that had been moved with Adol will vanish. Adol will also slide through some walls, but can potentially become stuck in them. If Adol stops on a staircase, he can slide left or right in mid-air. If he is stopped again in mid-air, he will walk up or down as though he is on stairs when moved again with Controller 1.

    It is also possible to instantly kill the final boss without even damaging it first by pressing Left and Right on Controller 2 during the fight. Unfortunately, the exact method to cause this to happen is unknown at this point. It's also unknown if this works on other bosses or not.

  3. Infinite Life

    Start a game and then save and exit.
    You must have 2 controllers plugged in for this to work.

    1) Turn the power on and wait until the logo screen appears (can't remember exactly what it is, but it is the one that fades in and out).

    2) On the 2nd controller, when the logo gets through fading in (on mine, it fades in really white then gets a shade darker) and press Up, Down, Up, Down, Select, and Start before the logo fades out.

    3) Continue with the game you started. While in the game, go to the status subscreen.

    4) On controller 2 hit Select and you should see DEBUG pop up. If not, then you must try the code again. After DEBUG pops up you are invincible. Your health can go all the way back down, but after it gets past 1, it goes all the way back up.

    Enjoy.

  2. Use the Amulet to max out your Levels, HP, and Gold

    When you are on the verge of raising a level, use the third and final charge of the Amulet on the monster that would've raised your level. The game will freeze for a second, the screen will flash, and your levels, HP, and gold should max out, along with the message that your Amulet is exhausted of it's powers. YOU MUST USE THE THIRD AND FINAL CHARGE of the Amulet for this trick to work!

    This trick will not work in boss fights.

    NOTE: This trick does not work on the SNES version of Y's III.
