The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King Cheats For PlayStation 2

  1. Use Locked Characters in Co-op mode

    You must be in Co-op mode for this to work. One of the players must hold either direction at the character select screen. Then, the other player must rapidly press x to select a character. If you press x while the cursor is on a "locked" character, you will get a message saying the character is locked. This is where the glitch comes in. The characters are still rotating while the message appears, but the names don't change. As a result, Sam could have the name Gandalf under him. If you select the Sam character, the name will override the character and play as Gandalf. The second player may be able to select a locked character as well, depending on how many far the names rotated and which characters are available. Now you will no longer have to waste your time on the weak hobbits on Frodo's path. you can play through levels like Cirith Ungol as Legolas and Gandalf on the first try.

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King Cheats For Game Boy Advance

  1. Duplicating Items

    (NOTE: You'll need at least one blank save slot) To duplicate good items that you find in your quest, just:
    1) Get to a level with any Forge or Shrine and a Ranger Hollow.
    2) Have the item(s) in your inventory.
    3) Save the game as normal, then save it to all the blank save slots you have.
    4) Quit the game, start up one of the games in the save slots you just filled, and put the item(s) in the Ranger Hollow of the level.
    5) Do this with all the save slots you filled.
    6) Go back to your main save, and take all the items out of the Ranger Hollow, you know have duplicates of your item.
    7) Repeat as wanted.

    Contributed by: Price Power 

  2. Get Sam without a Gamecube

    Many people like myself don't have a Gamecube or GBA-GC Link so here's how to unlock Sam without one. First you may want to beat the game with Frodo to get all of the artifacts in his quest so then if you have all of the artifacts you can play at Weathertop with Sam. Then start a new game as Frodo. Make it through Shelob's tunnel and Shelob will ambush you making you have to use Sam. Save the game during the fight with Shelob then quit. Now you can hook up the Gameboy Advance link cable with Sam or play on bonus maps with Sam.
    This could also be used for training Sam against Shelob if your having trouble.

    Contributed by: WeirdSwordDude 

  3. Massive Damage and Armor Boosts

    Go get a character that can equip a two-handed weapon, and a shield. Then, equip the sword and shield alternatly, and you will notice your damage on your stat screen going up. Carve armor runes to make your armor level rise too. This works with Eowyn, Gimli and Aragorn. The bug will reset once you leave an area.

    Contributed by: Tarravan 

  4. Infinite Stat Points

    The the map should be 'Anduin River - Corsair Camp'. Talk to the old lady at the north of the map to do the Missing Brother Sidequest. After you return her brother, talk to her again, she'll drop a random item and you obtain 1 stat point as well. Proceed south from here, you'll meet the old lady again. Talk to her and defeat the Corsairs. After that, she'll open up her barn (or ranch), then talk to her and she'll drop another item. Save, quit, reload and repeat. (Note: If you didn't talk to the old lady after she opened the barn, when you reload, the game will know you've finished the missing brother sidequest, which means you can never get the 1stat point reward from her again.)

    Contributed by: Skater Sirian 

  5. Duplicating Items in Multiplayer

    If you are playing in multiplayer, there is a simple trick that you can use in order to give items away to other people without losing the item yourself. When you are in multiplayer, choose an item and give it to the other player. Then, quit the game without saving. Have the other person save and quit the game. When you reload, the game will not have recorded that you gave away the item so you will still have it. Since the other person saved, they will also have the item.

    Contributed by: NDS_Master 

  6. Ancient Artifacts

    To unlock the ancient artifacts on your Game Boy Advance game, you must connect your Game Boy Advance Return of the King game to your GameCube Return of the King game. Ancient artifacts' names are in blue, but they are not unique items. Actually, they are fairly common once you unlock them, and some of the ancient artifacts have extremely good stats.

    Contributed by: NDS_Master 

  7. Unlock more bonus levels

    You can unlock Weathertop by collecting all of the artifacts. You can unlock Fanghorn by beating the game with all of the characters.
