If you attack Don Tonberry when he's at the far side of the screen, he'll automatically counterattack with an insanely powerful version of Karma, (ten times the power of a standard Karma, to be exact) which will usually kill you, even at high levels. Whereas if you defend for four turns while he walks towards you, and only attack him when you're staring him in the face, he won't counterattack. :at:Auto-Phoenix: or :wm:Auto-Life: are nescessary if you don't heed the Karma warning, and attack him before you can see the whites of his eyes. For a laugh, try summoning an Aeon to see his Voodoo attack...

Capture at least one of each monster from the Cavern of the Stolen Fayth. These are: Epaaj, Imp*, Yowie, Thorn, Dark Element, Nidhogg*, Valaha, Ghost, and Tonberry. *The Imp and Nidhogg also appear in Mt. Gagazet, but if you capture them there, they count towards your Cavern of the Stolen Fayth total. The encounter rate for certain monsters in the cave is ridiculously low, so if you can't find a certain monster right away, like a Tonberry, don't despair, you're not the only one. I personally spent four hours searching for Tonberries in the cave, and only found five in that time. Arcaneja and others on the GameFAQs FFX board have reported that the Tonberry rate was highest in the Silver Hourglass x40
