Character Classes
Cheat Codes
World Maps


This list is based on this file, which I assume was compiled from a hex dump of the ROM. You may want to grab it, it includes info that can be used in cheat codes (I think), as well as dummy items and call beasts, which are left out here.

If it says a weapon deals '*something*' damage, it deals more damage to enemies weak against the named element, and less to monsters strong against it. It might even heal monsters strong against that element. *something* could be Fire, Ice, Lightning, Water, Wind, Holy or Poison.

Also, remember that this list was made based on the old patch for the FF5 ROM, so if you're using a recent translation or the PSX version of the game, some of the items' names may be different from the ones you're used to.
