My Neighbor Totoro easter eggs

  • Return to the Temple of Trials after completing the storyline in Hamelin to find it full of people and familiars. Among them is the white fuzzy familiar Tomte. Speak to it to find that it is named My Neighbor Tomtoro, a clear reference to the 1988 Studio Ghibli film My Neighbor Totoro.

  • On Ugly Duckling Isle (South-east of Swan Island, which is directly north of the Summerlands) you can encounter the Toko, a familiar that looks very much like Totoro (body shape and eyes). It's other forms Tokotoko, Tokotocold, and Docotoko also share a resemblance.

  • King Tom is a large cat that happens to have the exact same colors and markings as Catbus.

Horace Locations and Riddle Solutions

Horace, the Sage of the Ages, takes the form of a ghost boy with green hair and will have a riddle for you to solve at each location you find him. Solving these riddles will unlock some of the most convenient spells available. The following are the places where you can find Horace, the answers to his riddles, and the rewards you receive for solving the puzzles:

Ding Dong Dell
You will first meet Horace at the memorial shrine near the King Tom's castle entrance. He will give you the Spirit Medium spell. Cast the spell to talk to him and complete this task.

Al Mamoon
Horace is found next to the milk fountain in this desert city. He will give you a new Tale of Wonder and ask you a few questions about it.The answer to the riddle is "DRAGON OF THE WEST". Yyou get the Draw Poison spell.

Castaway Cove
Horace can be found standing on a bridge overlooking the boats in the water. The answer to Horace's riddle is "FINEST FIBER". You will receive the Vacate spell, which forces Oliver and the party out of a dungeon (labelled "dangerous place" by the game) onto the overworld for the Travel spell to take effect.

The Fairygrounds
Horace is located in the outskirts of Fairygrounds, on the way to the Fairy Godmother. His riddle answer this time seems to be "CRISPY LETTUCE". He gives you alchemy formula for Sage's Secret; the spell (Levitate) must be found on your own as it is part of the story mission to enter the Fairy Godmother's reproductive system.

Horace will be on the balcony overlooking the main street below (this observation platform is outside the Hootique). Horace's answer should be "5" (for the number of Automata familiars in the Wizard's War mural in the Familiar section of the book). You get a Chart Chests spell, which functions like a radar for chests. Before entering the Porcine Palace, use Travel to head back to previous dungeons and cities to use this nifty spell. If you need to recharge your HP and MP, warp to the Temple of Trials or Golden Grove and use a save shrine.

Horace will be inside the Yule Elder's house, looking at a Blizzard Bloom. Answer the riddle with "BLIZZARD BLOOM" and earn the Cloudburst spell.

Horace is inside the Very Swift Solutions shop if you've been continuing the side mission for Horace's Riddles. Solve his riddle "JABAL AL-DUKHAN" (or "OLD SMOKY") and earn the Veil spell.

Back in Ding Dong Dell
Horace will return to Ding Dong Dell after the events in Nevermore Castle, and after the event that follows it, if you've answered all his riddles up until now. Find him at the cemetery in upper Ding Dong Dell. The answer this time is "UNLEASH" and Oliver will learn the Thunderstorm spell.

Ara Memoriae
Horace will be in the Ara Memoriae if you answered all his riddles till now and defeat Gallus half-way through the Ivory Tower (to unlock the Astra wand, otherwise, Oliver can't cast the reward). He will be at the northern most "pot", and asks you to give him an answer of "WIZARD'S ROBES". After answering correctly, Oliver will get the Astra spell and unlock Errand 136. Strangely enough, Oliver can cast this spell in battle without the wand earned from Gallus, but defeating Gallus is required for Horace to appear at Ara Memoriae.

Stocking up from errands

Since items can be expensive to buy, do Swift Solution errands anytime you can to earn both items and Guilders. This works out great when you have a quest for someone missing a piece of Heart and can find that Heart in the same town ( such as The Idle Wife errand in Ding Dong Dell, which nets you 3 Bars of Chocolate, 3 Flans, and 30 Guilders).

Kiki's Delivery Service easter eggs

Oliver's friend in Motorville is a boy named Phil who happens to bear a striking resemblance to Tombo, Kiki's guy friend in "Kiki's Delivery Service." They share the same hair, height, glasses, and love of building vehicles that allow you to travel (Tombo wants to create a flying bicycle while Phil wans to create the best car ever). At the very end of "Ni No Kuni," Oliver flies into Motorville on a broom. In "Kiki's Delivery Service," Kiki flies around on a broom to make deliveries for people. It's also about the only magic she can do. Both Oliver and Kiki are magic users.

  • Howl is known as a beautiful, dark-haired man with a light complexion. Marcassin, the king of Hamelin, is also a beautiful man with dark hair and light complexion.
  • The Cawtermaster's store looks like a dark crow similar to the form Howl takes in the movie.

Nausica of the Valley of the Wind easter egg

The game makes reference to a lost and ancient language called Nazcaa, which when pronounced sounds almost identical to Naussica. Nazcaan is the language the original Wizard's Companion was written in (as explained during Horace's riddle in Castaway Cove).

Grinding hint

You may eventually hit a boss fight or area that you find yourself too weak to get through. Rather than grinding in one area (which you may have to do once in a while), instead try completing Swift Solution quests that involve entering areas with enemies. This way you are gaining levels and are also receiving items, stamps, Guilders, etc. The best are the bounty hunts so that you fight enemies to grow stronger and earn rewards.

All Boss Strategies

The following is every boss fight in the game followed by a brief strategy:

Guardian of the Woods
Although it's tempting to use your Mite, stick to using Oliver and his Fireball spell to do much faster damage. Keep dishing out the Fireball spell and make sure you Defend when the boss is preparing to do its Windfall attack. Simply heal with Healing Touch if your health drops below 20 HP and collect blue glims to defeat this rather simple boss.

Hickory Dock
Toss Fireballs while keeping your distance. If you think you've learned his moves well enough, use your physical Familiar to dish some close-up hits. Always defend against his Mousefire attack, which is quick and strong. Occasionally his special attack will backfire and leave him open, allowing you to wail on him for a bit. As always, heal up when necessary.

This boss hits hard so you'll want to keep your distance with Oliver while tossing Frostbite since it does more damage per MP than Fireball. Although he hits hard, his attacks are easy to avoid so study his movement and learn when to evade and Defend. Note that his Everblade attack hits anywhere on the field so be sure to Defend against it. It is recommended that you keep your HP above 50. Also note that Seed Sprite's Drowsy Drops ability works on Gladiataur, allowing you to put him to sleep and recover if necessary. ONce he goes berserk just spam Frostbite until Drippy knocks him out with the shield, then switch to your physical Familiar and wail on him.

Rusty's Nightmare
Avoid using familiars as they won't stand a chance. Instead, stick to Oliver and use Frostbite while collecting blue glims to restore MP. Although the Nightmare's physical attacks are weak, getting hit by several of them in a short time can drain your health. Make sure to Defend against his Hard Heart attack.

This poss is programmed to only focus on the character that ISN'T in control. Do to this, it's easy to get to his side and unleash a flurry of attacks that will inflict heavy damage and often cancel the boss' attacks, which are quite weak anyways.

Spam Frostbite as Oliver and set up Esther so that she keeps you up with heals, only healing yourself if you drop low. His attacks are pretty weak except for one where he goes on a rampage against one character. If you have them, drink a Strong Coffee to keep your MP up while blasting him from behind with Frostbite.

Since his attacks will constantly interrupt any physical assaults, stick with Oliver and use Pulse. Make sure to Defend when he uses his Al-Khombo and stay away when he has a burning sword. However, charge with your strongest familiar when he's using a parasol. Once he's down to 20% he'll start doing his Hubble-Bubble attack which has a 10 second charge. Do not get wiped by this attack, heal up and defend.

Swaine's Nightmare
This boss will constantly put you to sleep and curse you, allowing it to hit you with physical attacks. Keep a distance and chip away at its health, always defending when it does its Bad Dream attack. Just make sure not to get hit by its physical attacks (which can crit) and you should be fine.

Although you only have to actually drop his health to 60%, it is quite a challenge keeping your party alive. This is a good fight for using any health items you stored, and make sure to set up Esther so she focuses on healing. Play defensively, especially when he casts Bleak Midwinter, and just try to chip away at his health as best you can while staying alive.

Royal Jelly
Equipment with storm resistance is recommended, as is any weapons that inflict fire damage. Though its physical attacks are weak, it often inflicts confusion so be prepared for that. Make sure to defend against its Bolt from the Blue attack and heal up afterwards. At 40% it will start casting Baby Shower, which spawns eight Jelly Baby enemies. Use any multi-enemy attacks to hit both the small jellies and the boss since Royal Jelly will be weak during this time. Lastly, definitely go for Oliver's Miracle Move since it's a fire attack that does great damage to the boss.

Porco Rosso
Physical attacks are pretty much harmless against this boss, so stick with magic and tricks. Drongo and any other familiars with storm-based tricks are recommended. Always perform an All-Out attack when the boss is weakened, and have Oliver grab the golden glim to perform his Burning Heart attack, which always deals decent damage. When the boss drops below 30% health it will start using a powerful attack called Gammon Cannon; it can do over 100 to each character so make sure to defend and stay healed.

Support item farming hint

Note: The following hint is performed toward the end of the game. To avoid spoilers, do not read on. After defeating Shadar and seemingly restoring order, the White Witch will cast a powerful spell that turns everyone from the three main cities (Ding Dong Dell, Al Mamoon, and Hamelin) into zombie-like creatures. These zombified townsfolk almost always give up awesome support items such as Cappuccinos, Cheeseburgers, and even Pixie Dews when you steal from them with Swaine via his Mugshot attack.
