You acquire Cerberus in Galbadia Garden. Once you’ve made your way through Galbadia Garden far enough, you’ll jump down into a basketball court, you should go left ordinarily, however, go right through the hidden door and save your game at the save point, now go back through the basketball court and carry on up the hallway so you come out in the Garden Circle, there is a large yellow light, Cerberus is inside this light.
He’s a very tough fight, use your strongest GF/Magic/Limit Breaks and hope he’s feeling like dying. Cerberus is also the BEST source for Double & Triple Magic until the end game.

Unlock Guardian Force Doomtrain

First thing’s first. To unlock Doomtrain you must have acquired Alexander GF. Once acquired you then need to get the following items

  • Solomon’s Ring – acquired from Tears Point
  • 6 Steel Pipes acquired from Wendigo’s in the forest near Timber
  • 6 Malboro Tentacles – acquired from Malboro on the Island Closest To Hell

Go and play a game of Triple Triad, intentionally lose your player/GF card, get your trophy/achievement and then simply reload your save. You keep your Trophy / Achievement and you then don’t need to worry about winning your Rare Card back

Cards Club Master
Silver Image
GS - 30

CARDS CLUB MASTER
Defeat every member of the CC group

The CC Group is an elite group of Balamb Garden staff/students who you will have to win a game of Triple Triad against.
There are 7 members of the Card Club, now for me I left this as my final trophy for the Platinum as you’ll pick up some fairly good cards along the way, chief among which, Eden & Bahamut.
Player cards are very useful here also, the 3 easiest ones to acquire are Zell – Challenge Zells Mum. Quistis – go to Balamb Garden Cafeteria, talk to the couple sitting at the table and challenge the guy at the back of the table & Selphie – Go to Trabia Garden, challenge the lady sitting on the Fountain
One of the biggest problems with the card game in FFVIII is the rules that can be put in place as you play throughout different regions. The worst rules you can have are Random & Plus. If, in Balamb Garden, these rules are present go to any other continent and play a game with different rules, then return to Balamb Garden until the rules you don’t want are abolished
As a final part of the setup process, you need to have played a minimum of 15 card games in Balamb Garden against any random NPC
Make sure before you go looking for the Card Club Members you have made a separate save and a back up of that save as losing matches, will mean you lose your strongest cards making this trophy/achievement very problematic to unlock.
Now that you have your cards ready and you have the rules in place you want to play with we can start finding and defeating the CC Group 1 by 1

First up is Jack, you can find him walking around the terminal in the main foyer area of Garden, challenge him with SQUARE/X To begin the card match. It doesn’t matter how many times you lose/draw you only need to win once

Next up is Knight Club, he will be in the Northernmost section of the circular walkway on the ground floor of Garden, walkout from where your dorm rom is and he’ll appear soon enough, win the match and we can move on.

After these 2 have been beaten, you can go after Princess Diamond, these are the 2 girls that walk up to the main terminal in the foyer area of Garden. Wait for them to stop walking then challenge them, make sure you have saved your game before challenging Princess Diamond as she has some very strong cards. Win the match to continue this side quest.

With 3 Card Club members defeated you can now go after Magician Joker, he’s a random spawning NPC in the Training Centre area of Garden. Make your way to the end of the green path and take the door on the right, if he has spawned he’ll be on the jetty. If not, leave back through the door and return to the jetty, after 2 or 3 attempts he will have appeared. Once he’s been defeated make sure you save as the next member has some seriously powerful Cards

Now you’re over halfway through this side quest, it’s time to go after the top tier of the Card Club, starting with Prince Spade, he can be found on the 2nd floor walkway, and is the NPC who gave you your cards at the very start of the game.
Prince Spade, can be quite challenging, he has a lot of high-level cards, but play defensively, reloading your save after a loss and you’ll have him defeated soon enough.

Once you’re happy to proceed with this side quest, make your way to the 3rd floor and go all the way up to the Bridge. Challenge Xu, who just turns out to be the Queen Hearts. She is very tough to win against, but employ the same strategy you have used to get this far and you should be able to take the Win soon enough.

*Make Sure You Save Before The Next Stage*

To make the Master King appear, you will need to go to the infirmary and speak with Dr. Kadowaki who will inform you, she used to be the King but has since passed the title over to a young lady, once this dialogue has been completed, go back to your dormitory and rest.
You will then be challenged by the King, who turns out to be… “Sorry, you’ll have to get there to find out“. Defeat the King and your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Obel Lake Secret
Gold Image
GS - 95

OBEL LAKE SECRET
Complete the Obel Lake side quest

You can do the Obel Lake sidequest once you’ve acquired the Ragnarok
Make your way to Timber, then go to the lake opposite on the World map, you need to select the option Try Humming until you hear about Mr. Monkey.
After this select Throw A Rock and do this until you see the message the Rock Skipped Many, Many Times
Mr. Monkey can the be found in the forest West of Dollet. Once you find Mr. Monkey, throw a rock at him and do this until Mr. Monkey throws a rock back at you with the letters (URHAEO)
After this go back to Obel Lake and speak to the Shadow again, it will then give you a series of clues, you need to see all of these to progress

You’ll Find Something On An Island East Of Timber, too

Go to the small island just off the Timber coast near the bridge to Fisherman’s Horizon, you’ll find the rock (REAIDR)

At The Beach In Balamb, Something Special Washes Ashore At Times

Go to Balamb Island and search the beach, you’ll find a lot of standard rocks, eventually you’ll find one that has the markings (STSLRM)

There’s Also Something On Top Of A Mountain With A Lake And A Cavern

Go to a river flowing to Galbadia Garden, follow this upstream until you find a cavern on the side of a mountain where the river has come from, land on top of the mountain, you will see a message saying “A Bird Is Warming An Egg” Choose “Check It Out” where you will battle 2 Thrustaevis. After the battle you’ll receive the rock inscribes (EASNPD)
Once you have all 4 rocks, go back to Obel Lake where all 4 rocks will appear on screen the message will read

[STSLRM][URHAEO][REAIDR][EASNPD]

Read it from top right to bottom left it will say MORDRED PLAINS HAS TREASURE
Fly to Mordred Plains, North West of Esthar. You will need to “speak” to the rocks here, ignore the white, black and blue rocks.
You want the red rocks, these will point you in the direction of your treasure. Now very important is to talk to the red rocks until they’ve given you 2 directions, the red rocks are liars though.
If the rock says “The Treasure’s To The North!” & “The Treasure Is To The West!” what that actually means is the treasure is to the South and East go the opposite way the red rocks tell you and eventually you’ll find a message saying “The Treasure’s Not Here!click again and you’ll find the treasure a Three Stars

That’s part 1 done…

Now go back to Obel Lake, hum at the shadow again and eventually it’ll tell you

Oh Yeah, Do You Know What? Take Some Time Off At EldBeak Peninsula. I Bet It’s A Wonderful Place

Eldbeak Peninsula is located on the Trabia Continent, go right to the tip of the Peninsula where you’ll get a message “TRETIMEASUREATMINOFFDEISLAND” which translates to Treasure At Minde Island.
Minde Island is located between Kashkabalad Desert and Esthar’s Southwest coast. Go to this island and you’ll find a LUCK-J scroll and finally unlock your Trophy / Achievement

1000 Kills
Silver Image
GS - 30

1000 KILLS
Kill 1000 enemies

Exactly what it says on the tin. Kill 1000 Enemies, get your trophy/achievement.
However, to make the trophy/achievement UFO a lot easier, go to the Trabia Continent and kill as many Gayla and Mesmerize enemies as you can, to ensure you get 100 Mesmerize Horns which you’ll need for the UFO trophy/achievement
All kills count towards the 1000 total required, as soon as you get your 1000th kill, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Omega Destroyed
Gold Image
GS - 95

OMEGA DESTROYED
Beat the Omega Weapon

Welcome to the hardest Trophy/Achievement in FFVIII Remastered. I strongly recommend you leave this as one of your last trophies/achievements you’re going for in FF8.
Make sure you’ve collected every GF, have your 3 strongest characters junction 100 Death to Stat-Def as Omega Weapon has an ability called LV. 5 Death, if your party are any multiple of level 5 then that ability will kill you instantly without having this.
Squall must have the Lionheart, personally I went for a party consisting of Squall, Zell & Selphie as they have the highest consistent DPS and defensive capabilities across the board.
In FFVIII Remastered, the developers have put Battle Assistance & a Speed Boost in place making this a lot simpler than it used to be back on PS1. Activate these buffs with L3/LS (Speedx3) R3/RS (Battle Assistance)
Please note, however, even with these buffs, if Omega decides you’re going to die, then you’re going to die.
One of its most powerful attacks is Terra Break which is a severely overpowered Meteor spell that inflicts a minimum of 4000 damage on you and can easily annihilate your entire party if RNG isn’t on your side.
It can also unleash Gravija which takes 75% of your HP off regardless of protection and Light Pillar which inflicts 9999 damage regardless of defence.
There is an item you can get called Hero, but for me, by the time I got to my item menu and used the item Omega Weapon had already taken the majority of my parties health.
Using the Speed Boost suppresses Omegas’ ability to get an attack in for the most part. Spam Omega with Renzokuken, Zells’ Duel, use Selphie for her Wall ability if you can get Selphies’ The End ability, that’s an instant win, but it does have a very low spawn rate.
You will probably die several times fighting Omega, but you only have to win once for the trophy/achievement to unlock.
Now you know the strategy, let’s get to finding Omega Weapon
You’ll need to be in Ultimecia’s Castle, from the main entrance, make a separate save and proceed through the front door, go up the stairs and defeat Sphinxaur.
A very simple fight (if it isn’t simple for you then go away and level up) now proceed through the door to directly in front of you, go onto the chandelier where you’ll drop down to a lower level. Proceed through the door North of your position, you’ll then be in a small courtyard with a fountain, enter the green aura and switch to your secondary party.

Proceed into the Castle again and go up the stairs, this time, go right, back down and through the door, proceed around the balcony, down the stairs and pull the long black pull cord where a timer will start.
Go into the green aura just in front of you and switch back to your main party. Go through the door opposite your position, Omega Weapon will be in this room. Good Luck!
Once defeated, you’ll earn the Omega Badge and unlock your Trophy / Achievement

Magic Miner
Silver Image
GS - 30

MAGIC MINER
Draw magic 100 times from draw points

Wait until you’ve got the Ragnarok and you’ll have access to 2 very special islands, make sure you’ve got Diablos’ ENC-None ability equipped for this.
The 2 islands are, The Island Closest To Heaven (North-East most island) and the Island Closest To Hell (West most island) there are around 25-30 draw points on each island. Make sure all 3 characters in your party have the draw ability equipped and run around the coast, then make your way inland.
Simply make your way from one island to the other until you’ve drawn 100 Times at which point, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Timber Maniacs
Gold Image
GS - 95

TIMBER MANIACS
Collect all Timber Maniacs magazines

There’s a total of 12 Timber Maniacs magazines to collect in FFVIII only 1 of which are missable, that’s the one on the White SeeD Ship
Their locations are as follows

  • Your first magazine will be in the Balamb Hotel in the guest room

Cactuar
Silver Image
GS - 30

CACTUAR
Unlock Guardian Force Cactuar

Once you’ve acquired the Ragnarok, go to the most SouthWestern island, the one that’s kind of shaped like a Cactus, you’ll see a Cactus, disappearing and reappearing on the world map, touch this cactus to initiate the fight.
Cactuar has a very nasty attack called 10,000 Needles, this will 1-shot you regardless of your stats so make sure you have plenty of life magic/phoenix downs
Cactuar is very weak to water so equip that to your ATK-J and use the Leviathan GF
Whichever way you choose to defeat Cactuar, once it’s dead, you’ll then unlock your Trophy / Achievement

Tonberry
Silver Image
GS - 30

TONBERRY
Unlock Guardian Force Tonberry

Tonberry is a difficult one, you need to go to Centra Ruins and complete the quest for Odin to make acquiring Tonberry a lot simpler, when you first enter Centra Ruins there’s a time limit of 20 minutes, get the Odin side quest done (see video below for details) then there’s no time limit.
After you’re done with the Odin side quest, go back to the World map, save and re-enter Centra Ruins, make your way up the first flight of stairs and stay in the area with the large fountain, you will only fight Tonberries in this location, nasty little enemies with a very strong attack.
Essentially what you need to do is defeat enough of these Tonberries WITHOUT LEAVING THE RUINS (progress resets if you do) eventually, you’ll defeat a Tonberry and the Tonberry King will drop in straight after the fight (fight won’t end) the Tonberry King is a lot easier than the standard Tonberries because he doesn’t counter every attack.
Use your limit breaks/GF to defeat Tonberry King faster, once defeated you’ll have access to Tonberry GF and your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Eden
Silver Image
GS - 30

EDEN
Unlock Guardian Force Eden

Eden is the toughest GF to get to and more importantly, come away with. First off you must have defeated Bahamut. Make your way back to the Deep Sea Research Centre (SW corner of the world map) You need the Ragnarok for this. You want to make sure you’re very high level with incredibly high stats before you even think about going for Eden.
You’ll face everything between x2 Iron Giants, Ruby Dragons, Tri-Faces and finally Ultima Weapon. Oh, and you do all that with No Save Points along the way.
1 very important thing to ensure you do is to have a high-level Zell in your party, but we’ll get to that.
Make your way down the hole after defeating Bahamut, you need to release pressure to get to the Excavation Site, use 1 pressure all the way down to the bottom and having Zell in your party will ensure you can get through the lowest door.
Now before you proceed through, make sure all 3 characters have the draw ability junctioned to them and proceed down through the staircases and walkways, once you’re at the lowest level  you will be told the Rocks Are Resonating, make sure you have your strongest character in the middle of your party as Ultima Weapon will kill the other 2 as soon as the fight starts, use draw Immediately as the fight starts, Eden has a 100% draw success rate, once acquired your Trophy / Achievement will unlock.
If Ultima Weapon kills you you’ll still have your trophy/achievement but no Eden, come back when you’re stronger to take down Ultima Weapon if you’d like the Eden GF

End of Game

You’ll make your way to Ultimecia’s Castle whereby all of your abilities will become unusable, you need to fight a series of very strong enemies to unlock your abilities.
The fight against Ultimecia is a very long uphill battle against several different versions of Ultimecia and her GF Greiver.

Diablos
Bronze Image

UFO
Complete the PuPu side quest

You’ll need the Ragnarok to be able to start this quest, you’ll also need 50 Mesmerize Horns, which you can acquire from Mesmerize enemies on Trabia Continent. Have unlocked Carbuncle GF and have it’s Recov Med-RF ability.
Use the Recov Med-RF ability to turn your Mesmerize Horns into 100 MegaPotions. Then you need to make sure you have unlocked Doomtrain and learnt the ability Forbid Med-RF. Use Forbid Med-RF on your 100 MegaPotions, to turn them into 5 Elixers. Do Not use the Elixers for anything but this side quest or you have to do the above over again.
Now you have your Elixers, we can start this quest. Having Diablos ability Enc-None will be very useful as well. Your objective is to get into a “battle” against 4 UFO’s DO NOT ENGAGE THESE UFO’s
If you do anything to these UFO’s you will immediately fail the side quest

Your First UFO will be on the beach by Timber, simply start the battle, put your controller down and wait for it to finish

Your Second UFO will be around the Winhill area, run around, the UFO will find you soon enough

Your Third UFO will be on a tiny oval shaped island just off the east coast of the Trabia Continent

Your Fourth UFO will be on the east most part of the lowest continent on the map

Now that you have observed all 4 UFO’s, make your way to the North East part of the World map, you want to land on the mountain range just next to the Chocobo Sanctuary (large forested area) you’ll get into a battle, this time you’ll need to defeat the UFO. Once defeated go into your menu and make sure all 3 characters have the Item ability junctioned to them and that your 5 Elixers are in item slot 1
Now proceed back to where Balamb Garden was, run around the crater and you’ll get into a “battle” with PuPu, DO NOT ATTACK IT!
What you need to do is use your 5 Elixers on it, 1 by one, once successful, you’ll get a thank you, the “battle” will end, you’ll get PuPu’s card, and more importantly, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock
