  Life Ring


5000G
Click for Picture
Use: Equip to regain 5HP per round
Equip on: Anyone in the Force who is promoted
Find it in: The Japanese version only. At the top of the Fairy Woods Bonus stage, to the right of the Bubbling Ooze.
About the screenshot: Using GeneCyst I disabled the top layer of graphics to be able to illustrate on the screenshot the actual location of the chest it is in (the stats box covers it otherwise). Since it's in Japanese, here's a picture showing Bowie once he got the Life Ring. I've put an insert on the screenshot of the location, so you can see that the text besides the Life Ring icon matches the text displayed when the chest is opened.
Moogie Says: A very useful item, it's just a shame that it's only in the Japanese version, or at least can only be reached in the Japanese version due to the lack of the search-in-battle option in the USA and UK versions.

  Chirrup Sandals


5G
Click for Picture
Use: They squeak, the wearer seems to become one of the main targets in battle, and if unequipped on Slade or Bowie they may learn the glitch spell "Higins"
Equip on: Anyone in the Force
Find it in: Search the table/chair next to the secret passage in Galam Jail.
Screenshot of Bowie's stats sheet - Higins Spell includedMoogie Says: According to Sir Astral, they 'keep you happy'. The "Higins" spell uses 3 MP and is like a heal, but it doesn't heal. If you look closely, the picture on the sandals would appear to be Jogurt from Shining Force! It has recently been discovered (by ELrad) through hacking the ROM, that the Higins spell is indeed a glitch spell, used only as a "spacer" in the game's code. It serves no purpose. Mystery solved!
