The strongest weapon in the game is not an item that you'd expect to do
wonders: The Spoon, or the "Kitchen Knife" in the Japanese versions and
US PSX version, a secret item in this game, can be thrown by Edge to
cause 9999 points of damage to a single target, but it can only be used
To get it:
1. Go to the Sylvan Cave. (It's in the upper-left corner of the
Underworld.) Talk to the sylphs and find Yang.
2. Once you've found Yang, go to Fabul and talk to Yang's wife. She will
give you the Frying Pan.
3. Return to the Sylvan Cave, and use the Frying Pan on Yang. He will
4. Give the Frying Pan back to Yang's wife. She will give you the Spoon
as a reward.
CAREFUL! There is a bug in the game regarding the Frying Pan. If you get
the Frying Pan, and defeat the Giant of Bab-il before returning it, you
will _not_ be able to get the Spoon - you'll have to carry the Frying
Pan around with you for the rest of the game. Make sure that you return
the Frying Pan as soon as you can!
