Shining Force II


Super Strength

Get your character's experience to 99, exactly 99, not one less, not one more(you can achieve it by attacking your opponents barehanded to gain 1 exp). Then by using the control opponent code, use an enemy who has the spell of confuse. Cast it on a character in your party, not the enemies! If he hits and then the character will go a level up and have a life meter of 200 and the other attributes are with. Note: This code is confirmed on the Japanese version of the game as well as the American version.

Super God

Get Sheela's boost spell up to level 2 and get all of your characters within casting range, and simply cast it. Wait until it wears off and cast it again - you can get her up to level 99 this way and she will have atleast 200 HP, 150 MP, 175 attack, 160 defense, and 225 agility. This makes her stronger than Volcanon. Try and select a random battle to try this trick in, like the one near Yeal. Choose a hard battle and you just might not make it.

Easy Weapons

Here's a little cheat to get those powerful weapons faster. Here's what you have to do. First activate the configuration mode and select yes when ask if you want to control enemies. Next enter a battle with enemies that have those rare weapons. When you take control of the enemy, make him discard his weapon(if he has one). After that you can either cast Egress or finish the battle. Finally go to any town, enter a shop and go to the DEALS option. You should be able to find the weapons you discarded from enemies in earlier battles. You can also "steal" any ring and rare item that enemies may be carrying.

Difficulty Select

For a harder game, use the Configuration code to complete the game, then reset and choose to begin a new game. After you name your character, you're given the option to change the game difficulty. Choose from Normal, Hard, Super or Ouch!
