Miscellaneous Secrets -
Use DSS in the Battle Arena - If you would like to use magic in the Battle Arena, then use this trick. Use a Mind High to restore your magic. Then, while still in the menu, select the DSS summon you want to use. Now, exit the menu and immediately press the DSS button and summon your cards.
Scary Candle and Trick Candle - These special little guys appear later in the game. After you beat the Dragon Zombie, head back to the Iron Golem room. In here there will be a different looking candle on the wall. If you attack it, it will fall to the ground and disappear. Use a summon on it to kill it. It will give you the Uranus Card. The other candle doesn't appear until after you beat Camilla. Head back to the Cerberus room to find it. Kill it the same way as the other one. It will sometimes drop the Pluto Card.
Skeleton Medallist - This guy is very fast and very hard to find. Head to the room where you first spoke to Dracula in the beginning
of the game. Summon one of your rotating shields and drop down the hole, hugging the left wall. You should break a hole in it. Head in the hole and
grab the treasure. Now, before you leave, jump to the ceiling just before the door. Your shield should break a hole in the ceiling. The Skeleton
Medallist is up there. If you jump up there and listen very carefully, you can here him hit the wall. This guy is purely suicidal. We want to kill
him before he kills himself. To accomplish this, you can use your Earth Whip to hit him before he hits the wall. It will take some practice. He
often drops a Toy Ring, but don't get discouraged. If you are persistent enough, and quite lucky, then he will drop the Bear Ring.
