The Bodyguard

  • Boss map sprites are all sparkles.

Final Fantasy 4: The Musical

Forward is the New Back

  • All encounters are changed to back attacks (except for the second boss of Mt. Ordeals).

Holy Onomatopoeia, Batman!

  • Damage numbers in battle are replaced with onomatopoeias (eg. “BAM!”)
  • Count status numbers are alternating pairs of “AA” and “!!”.

Imaginary Numbers

    • Item quality is loosely correlated to the enemy's vanilla level.
  • Success rate of Sneak improved.

Men Are Pigs

  • All male characters are permanently Piggy.

Misspelled

  • All spells have the effect of other spells. (eg. Rosa will still start with a “Cure1” that costs 3 MP, but it may in fact be Meteo.)
  • Enemies that use spells will use the equivalent-effect spells, not the same-name spells. (eg. if “Meteo” has the effect of Lit-1, then Milon's counterattacks will be “Meteo” → Lit-1.)

A Much Bigger Magnet

  • Magnetic field effect applies to all battles until TwinHarp breaks the spell.

Mystery Juice

  • All consumable items cost 1000 GP and are randomly assigned generic names (“Milky”, “Juicy”, etc).
  • Juice names are different for each seed.
  • Item description boxes for juices will only display “????”.

Neat Freak

Something Worth Fighting For
