    I've never played any Japanese version, but an attack that I can think of that is deadly, even to yourself if you don't protect yourself, would be Vivi's Doomsday. I had used it without equiping something to protect my party against darkness once, big mistake on my part!

    Szcz -- no, you're all right. I didn't even care about the specific names of the ATEs, just the particular sequence of events, so as long as you knew about that without checking the guides (which you did) you were fine.

It is a word, that fundamentalists use as an excuse for terrorism. Just give me a name of that attack in english ver.
    Hint - this attack is dangerous, if you don't know what you are doing
    I think what you're referring to is the Crusader Esper in FFVI (which randomly attacks either the enemy or your party), as it was called 'Jihad' in the Japanese original. Incidentally, it was also the origin of the 'Holy War' items in FFVIII (that give you limited invincibility).

    But as this is the FFIX section, I digress (as I have no idea what attack in FFIX was called this in the Japanese version).

    Correct! Vivi's (and Ozma's) Doomsday was known as Jihad in japanese version. It went faster than i thought Perhaps hint was too obvious. You're next, feralanima.

    @Agent0042
    Thanks

    @Enkidoh
    That's true. Both Crusader and Doomsday are known under the same name in the original ver. btw Name "Crusader" is closer to original intent than "Doomsday", I think

    Szczepan, thank you for your honesty and willingness to clarify how you came up with your answer. The names of the ATEs were, in fact, the reason I thought it was odd that you remembered it exactly, and it makes perfect sense that you looked only those up. As Agent said, you didn't really do anything wrong.

    Alrighty then! Right after you get out of Evil forest you can walk over to North Gate and a woman will give you potions, but upon entering, the group asks where they are, what is the other name for North Gate?

    Devil's Arch? I remember the line of dialogue in which it's mentioned, but I just can't think of the name for sure.

    No, not quite. It is an Arch, but Devil's isn't it.

    I think it starts with a 'b', but I'm not sure. Boden's Arch?

    I admit, I'm grasping at straws here, so it's most likely wrong.

    Getting closer, Bohden Arch is one of the South Gate archs.

    This is the first question I've seen that's stumped everybody so well that I would call a good question. Well done, feralanima.

    It's been so long that I played FFIX that I can no longer remember the individual names for those gates - the crappy Brady strategy guide was no help in that regard either, fittingly.

    I could fire-up an old save on my PS2 to find the answer but I'm too lazy.

    I thought that's what someone was doing since it was taking awhile for anyone to get it!


    Thank you FF1, does this mean I have to give the answer now since no one is getting it?

    The other name for that South Gate is Melda Arch. Bohden Arch (North Gate) was the closest answer given, so Enkidoh can ask the next question, if not then whoever wants it.

    Okay.

    What is the popular dessert sold at South Gate's Summit Station (which Cinna apparently loves to eat?).

    South Gate Bundt Cake. I remember really wanting to eat one.

    Correct!

    I can't even remember how to unlock that hidden ATE event anymore either. It's a funny scene regardless.

    Anyway, go ahead and post a question when you're ready.

    I remember-- after Doctor Tot directs you to the secret entrance to Gargan Roo, just have Dagger exit the tower and then it will become available.

    Alright, I have a somewhat academic question:

    What two literary figures are the source of the name of the moogle that travels the world throughout FFIX?

    I know its Stiltzkin, but I never knew his name was based on anything.

    I'll give a hint, then. The guy he was named after was supposed to have a name that was really hard to guess. He also could weave straw into gold or something.

    Yes, Rumplestiltzkin.

    Has nobody really heard Rumplestiltzkin?
