Captain's cabin short-cut

To reach the Captain's cabin in less than 3:30, climb the stairs after entering the room with Musashi in the cage and the Record Kaiser in the upper corner. You will then enter a room with rotating boxes on platforms. Don't climb the ladder. Instead, find the tan box on the right side of this room and hit it twice with your sword to reveal a hidden passage. Jump into the passage to land on top of some cages in the room with Musashi, then enter the doorway to the left to leave the ship. Ignore the advice that Jack will give you and turn to the right to follow the passage outside and around the ship. After some jumps and ladder climbing, you will reach what appears to be a dead end. Cut through the rope on the right, then jump down. Climb the ladder and break through the door by hitting it three times, then jump into the opening. Jump seven more times to reach the room just underneath the ship's deck.

Gold badges

To receive a gold badge, beat a Parallel and wait until the credits have completed. Answer "Yes" to save your game. A gold Roman numeral badge for the parallel that was beaten will be displayed.

Hint: Defeating Bilan

Use Doc in the fight with large Bilan on Parallel 1. Run from Bilan in the opposite direction, then jump behind the rocks and run all the way to the end. Keep building your special attack by holding A and waiting for the bar to blink. Use the attack to make fire appear and hit Bilan. He will not be able to do anything because he is too big to get back there. Repeat this until he has been defeated.

Hint: Defeating Lance

To easily defeat Lance on Parallel 1, hit him with the sword until he gets to the edge of the track, then hit him to make him fall off. Note that having him fall of the edge will not give you any points.

Hint: Defeating Max

After Lance walks up to you to start fighting on Parallel 1, jump off track during battle. You will be lying on the ground at the entrance of that part and Jack will talk to you. You'll stand up continue on your way but Lance will no longer be there. When you get to the area of the Bilanium, Garian will stop and talk, but instead of you having to walk down to Warden to talk to him, Lance and Warden will be standing together. When Jack asks you to pour the liquid nitrogen on one of the two, pour it on either character. The same thing will happen, but Bilan will be in place of Warden after you pour it on the character. Max will catch you in a cage and drop you in the ruins. After you are about halfway there, Max will stop you. You will have to fight him and he can be captured.

Hint: Defeating Musashi and Golden Statue:

In order to do this trick, you must have Max and Copper Statue captured. When you enter the Golden Castle on Parallel 2, complete the maze, then save the game at the end of maze. When you enter the room, Musashi will be standing with Miranda. Before the battle starts, switch to Max to use in the fight. When Max hits and knocks down Musashi, capture chance should appear. Capture him and the battle will end. When you are finished talking to Miranda and the platform raises, put the top parts of each wall picture in their correct places and go to the middle of the room so it raises. When Jack asks to use another captured monster, pick Copper Statue. When the battle starts, knock down Golden Statue and capture chance should appear. Capture him and the battle will end.

Hint: Go back in time

On Parallel 2, when it is time to save Kay, don't save her. Continue the game without her and get to the sewers. Since you didn't save her, nothing will happen there. Instead of going through the opening at the start of the sewer (where Kay would have been standing) you will have to take the long route. When you reach the end, Jack will talk about the large rat that is standing in front of you. He is asleep if Kay has been saved. Fight him to continue, then climb up the ladder to return to JLO headquarters. Bruno and Tracy will be standing together. Talk to Bruno and he will tell you to get the diary from Warden's mansion and give you a key. You will have to go through the alternative route in the room to get in the mansion. After you've done everything in the mansion, return to JLO and Tracy will be gone. Continue the mission and you will eventually encounter Tracy, standing in the same place where Kay would have been if you'd have saved her. She will get captured (just like Kay) and get dropped in the ruins. Go in after fighting Max and you will see Tracy getting chased by Warden (also as with Kay). Proceed and you will see two or three more scenes with Tracy and Warden before you finally catch up. When you get there Warden will take the diary from you and Tracy will ask you to help her find Kay. Answer "No" when Jack asks you to continue lying. He will then ask you to get it off of your chest. Answer "Yes" to this and you will tell her the truth. She will cry and you will apologise. She will then say "It's all right" and you will say "I wish I could go back in time". The screen will start blinking and you will restart in the location where the guards put you in the torture chamber. Note that you will lose all items, equipment and captured monsters, and it will be "Parallel ?". If you were to answer "Yes" when Jack asks you to continue lying, a rose will fly over head and land in front of Tracy. She will find out that you were lying and you will have to fight. You won't be able to defeat her since she has infinite HP. After she kills you, a few messages will appear and the game will end. Save the game before you get to this part in case you make a mistake.

Hint: Pass the bat and ball spike trap

After you meat Regine in Deadman's Castle (Parallel 1), enter the room and place Garian to the front right side of the big square without stepping on it (close to the pipes, but not in front). Make sure the bats are not under him, then press Jump and quickly press A when he is in the air. If done correctly, he should have thrown Drizzit to the far right corner of the square, close to the other side of the floor. Move Garian across the square to the other side and pick Drizzit up. Make sure he is not standing on the square. If the trap gets activated, run out of the room to where Regine is located, then come back inside and it will be back just as it was before. To get over the second trap (the floating spike balls), enter into the zigzag maze from the left and walk across to the wall on the right. Stop at the right end, face the second square, then press Jump and quickly press A to throw Drizzit over the maze fence. He should land next to the second square, but not on it. Continue walking through the maze, across the second square, and pick Drizzit up once you are in the clear, then proceed. This trick will also work in Parallel 2, when carrying Kay through Deadman's Castle.
