Dont you have to basically be overpowerd to beat that one boss in Ar Tonelico 2 in 2 turns, or else the game freezes?
Rumors about my snacks are false. They are not so hot you die of coughing

Look at my recent posts in the New Game Journal for one example of breakitude (though to be fair, FFVIII basically cries out to be broken and abused like a masochist with Stockholm Syndrome).

Meanwhile, I went and abused Pickpocket and Counterfeiting in SO2 until I had a party of level 100 characters before the tournament. Then I realized that from here to Nede was nothing but unwinnable boss fights and non-gameplay related bullshit and that in the time I spent grinding myself up to 100 I could've used to have beaten the game. It wasn't worth it. :negative:

Dragon Quest V. Getting a Slime Knight and abusing the first available casino until you win two Metal King Swords (the whip is not worth it since the only character who can make good use of it leaves shortly thereafter). Suddenly, I'm able to steamroll everything prior to the second timeskip without breaking a sweat.

Dragon Quest IV. Kitting out your party in Metal King Shields and Meteorite Armbands, abusing Taloon's inventory and finances by loading up on Swords of Destructions to sell off at the start of chapter 5.

Abusing the integer overload bug in Secret of Evermore to have nearly capped Def and eventually Att.

And others I don't care to recall at this particular point of time.


Edit: One other I care to recall at this particular point of time are the SRW OG GBA games. Dumping all of your money into a machine gun or two and maxing them out will let you steamroll the earlier parts of the game due to their high availability, low cost to upgrade, high amounts of ammo, decent accuracy and critical ratings, not crippled by crap like water or beam coats, and can be passed around to any real robot in need of a good finisher/boss killer attack or a crutch to help them catch up in levels or kill count for secrets.

Not really, no.  I just played normally and didn't have any trouble.  I wasn't even sure which boss it was...

Vandal Hearts.
There was one level with heal pads. I used the good old "hit own ally" trick to max out my party. It ended up backfireing though. In one of the special missions, you had to get to a chest with an orb in it while fighting through some golems. Problem was, that the mission ended when all the golems ware destroyed. My party was so strong that even without without initiating attacks and no gear they still one shot the enemy with counters. It was simply impossible to get to the chest before the level ended. It was the first time I couldn't complete a mission because I was TOO strong.

In FF IX isn't there a tree boss you can beat by using an elixir or heal potion on him?

Yep. An Elixir would be a bit of a waste but the "Life" spell will instantly kill the Soulcage.

You can also kill the underwater snake thing in FFX with an healing item.
Since you have Rikku, you can even mix 2 low tier items into something insta-death.

Getting to that town in the snow early in Tales of the Abyss and exploiting the casino in order to get the equipment sold only in that town.
OBJECTION!

That equipment sucked though. I went there to power level on the higher level monsters. THAT was fun.

TASTY!

Though speaking of breaking Tales games, taking a detour for an early Midgar visit in Phantasia for a Mech Halberd helped quite a bit in getting past the desert and all that crap that goes along with it.
