Urn Of Gaia: This Urn is found in Rhodes (the first level). Take the stone block that you push with the golden bird on top, which you need to first break to get some Red Orbs, and push it between Kratos and the gate. While Kratos is on the button to open the gate, kick the block to the other side and then quickly roll under the gate. Then, push the block to the right and you will see three chests on a ledge in the background. Push the block to that area and double jump, then lift yourself up. This Urn allows you to gain ten times the number of Orbs than normal.
Urn Of the Gorgons: After you get the Golden Fleece, backtrack to the conveyor belt with the Gorgon eye things that turn you to stone, then reflect the beam back at them. There will be three chests, one of which holds the Urn. This Urn enables your weapons to turn enemies to stone.
Urn Of Olympus: Near the area where you get the Spear of Destiny, take the time slowing statue and push it near the waters edge from where you first came. Try to make it so you can start the time slowing from the other side of the pool. Then, press R1 across the other pool and roll into the room where the Urn is located. This Urn gives you unlimited magic
Urn Of Prometheus: This Urn is found in Atlas. When hanging from his underarm, you have to break two stalactites to continue, but there is also another one you can break. Break it and then follow the hole up to find a red chest and the Urn. This Urn gives you unlimited Rage Of The Titans.
Urn Of Fates: Successfully complete Challenge Of The Titans mode with a "Mortal" or better rank. This Urn extends your allotted combo meter time so you can perform higher combos.
Urn Of Poseidon: Successfully complete Challenge Of The Titans mode with a "Spartan" or better rank. This Urn allows you to exchange Crono's Rage with Poseidon's Rage.
Gift of Health: When you get to the area where the second translator jumps off the ledge to avoid reading the book, place the fate statue by the gate at the end of the hall. Go through the mirror that rewinds time, freeze time, then roll back to where the statue was originally. Open the chest that is now there to get the Gift of Health.
Gift of Magic: When you are almost to the area where you have to burn the Phoenix feathers (the part where you are climbing on the rope over the lava and enemies shoot the rope down and you must climb on the wall and then ceiling to get to the next place), as soon as you turn the corner, where you have to jump over the lava and fly, take out the bow instead and shoot the wall below a few times and it will open, revealing the Gift of Magic.
Part way through Rhodes (the first level), you will drop down into a bath house/sauna type area. Instead of continuing and diving down, jump out of the water onto the area around it. There should be two screens which are breakable. Behind one of the screens are two topless women. If you walk up to them and press Circle, a sexual mini-game will begin where you must complete a series of button presses. Once you complete the mini-game, you will get Red and Green Orbs. You only get the Orbs once; however, you can play the mini-game as many times as desired.
Hidden cover art
Slip the cover sheet out of the game's case and look at the back to find alternate cover art.
Immediately after you defeat Euryale, you will get unlimited magic to use with your new skill. To complete this part of the game, you must kill five enemies by turning them to stone and shattering them. However, if you face the rear wall and position yourself directly in front of the center spawn, you can cast Cronos' Rage, roll right, cast it again, roll back to the left two times, cast it again, and repeat. You can build up massive combos by doing this to get lots of Orbs. Once you get a 2,000 hit combo, break the combo off (do not cast for about four seconds) and start again. You will get over 1,500 Orbs for each 2,000 hit combo.
To get a lot more Red Orbs easily, upgrade the Blade Of Olympus to level 2. Then, hold L1 + Circle to use the shield the blade emits and suck in Red Orbs from live enemies. Once they have been drained, kill them to get more.
Easy Cyclops Eyes
Each time Challenge 1 in Challenge Of The Titans mode is successfully completed, you will get one Cyclops Eye. You can repeat this as many times as needed. Unlock the Arena Of The Fates, then make three Cyclops and have them respawn and not attack to get twenty Cyclops Eyes quickly. When the Bowmen (little penguin-like creatures with axes) call the Cyclops with their horn, just kill the Cyclops and not the Bowmen. After you rip the Cyclops' Eye out, the Bowmen will call another Cyclops. You can keep doing this until you get all twenty Cyclops Eyes.
Using the Golden Fleece
Once you get the Golden Fleece from the Cursed Cerberus, you can use it to block and reflect enemy attacks by pressing L1 at the precise moment. However, if you continually press L1 as fast as possible, you will usually block and return most attacks.
Protecting the Translator
This trick is especially useful on the God or Titan difficulty setting. During the part where you must protect the Translator from the three waves of enemies, there is a way you can do it a little easier. For the first two wave of enemies (the waves before the part when Kratos drops the Translator and kneels beside the book), you can hide behind the cage and hit the enemies, taking minor or no damage. Once you grab him and walk out the cage for the first time, there will be an intermission sequence that releases the first set of enemies. Go back in the cage and pull the boulder off the switch. Then, use the Hammer's L1 attack in the air or L1 + Triangle to hit enemies with the Hammer's attack wave. Once the first set of enemies is over, walk towards the middle to activate the second set. Take your time. Once you see the enemies appear, run back behind the cage and pull the stone off again. Repeat the same process and you should be able to avoid getting hit.
Use the following trick during the second part of the battle with Theasus. When he is on the roof and summons creatures to attack you, lead them around until he summons up ice pillars. Then, roll to avoid them but make sure the beasts get caught underneath when the ice pillars are summoned. By doing this, they will get hurt and eventually killed.
