Welcome to the Final Fantasy IX Perfect Game WikiEdit

The Final Fantasy IX Perfect Game Wiki is intended to house a complete and ever-updating guide to the perfect game run for Final Fantasy IX, which includes the Excalibur II and the potential for max stats.

A big thanks must go to Atomos199, the original creator of the Excalibur II Perfect Game Guide on GameFAQs, as well as everyone who helped in its creation. Without him, a perfect game in Final Fantasy IX may have never been thought possible. Much of this wiki is taken directly from his guide.

Notice to PAL gamersEdit

Contrary to what was thought years up until now, it IS possible to complete this challenge on the PAL version of the game. camdad04 has completed a run on the NTSC version of the game, where if the time is adjusted roughly for PAL, it is under 12 hours with a few minutes to spare. However, you will have to be extremely strict about how many encounters you take and how quickly certain battles go if you are to succeed. As of yet, it is inconclusive as to whether it is possible to complete this challenge on PAL and also collect 10 Promist Ring, as this requires a major detour. camdad04 is in the process of a run that does just this (on the NTSC version, time adjusted for PAL).
