1. Winning the Colosseum
The Colosseum is just to the west and south of Morrieta, the starting town. There are 6 challenge levels you can take on. While the rewards for the first 5 levels are nice, the best reward comes from completing the final level, 6, which is also the hardest. The difficulty of level 6 is about the same as the fight against Zed– if you have reached Zed’s castle, you are probably strong enough to clear level 6. Your reward will be a Star Medal, one of the best items in the game, and a bonus ending scene.
2. Defeating Neptune
Neptune is a moderately-difficult boss that you can fight after you first acquire the ship. Defeating him will give you an additional ending scene after beating the game.
3. Completing the Hidden Dungeon
In the first world, there is an ultra-challenging hidden dungeon. There is a ton of really high-quality treasure here, however. I would recommend searching through the place either just before fighting Zed, or just after. Of course, you can always use the Infinity Repel, get all the treasures, and not worry about the harder monsters! Less fun that way, though. Earn that treasure!
4. Defeating the Ghost Captain
This is one of the hardest bosses in the game, and I would recommend you don’t fight him until you have reached at Elvis’ Tower. If you defeat him, then the eventual boss encounter when you meet Elvis will be even harder. This is the sidequest for hardcore players who want the game to truly challenge their strategy.
And if you’re ULTRA hardcore, and defeat the Ghost Captain with only your main character (ie, not ever recruiting other party members), AND then defeat Elvis in the New World, again with just that single character, then you will get something really special in the game’s ending. This is a challenge that only, like, one person in the world has ever done.
5. Getting the Second Airship
You can get an airship in the New World. First, you have to reach the town of Rosevelle.
6. Saving the Town of Rosevelle
Rosevelle is a weird town, but you can restore it to normalcy, or just let it die, if you’d like. Here’s how.
7. Acquiring all the Monster Allies
There are 6 monsters you can recruit to your party: a Slime, Skeleton, Centaur, Golem, Gold Slime, and Shark. To see what each monster does, check out the Class Guide.
In order for to get the monster on your party, you need a unique item dropped by a monster of that type, and a substantial amount of money. Here’s where to find the “Creature Kids” who give you the monster allies:
8. Getting Elvis to join your party
If you don’t do this sidequest, Elvis will die. Not only can you rescue him and restore his sanity, you can even get him to join your party. Here’s how:
After getting the item, return to Morrieta and give it to Queen Muriel, who is Elvis’ mother. If you are polite to her in the conversation you have, Elvis will live and will hang out in Morrieta after you defeat him in his tower. If you are rude to Queen Muriel, Elvis will still die, but will be in Morrieta as a ghost.
9. Getting the Third Airship
World 20XX is massive and a pain to get around. Having an airship helps with that. It’s pretty easy to get, and you can get it very quickly.
10. Collecting all 9 Skull Medallions
This is the sidequest to end all sidequests. Here are the Skull Medallion locations.
