Treasure: Copper Pickaxe
Tower of Druaga Copper pickax.png Press the action button when standing still in front of an inner wall to break that wall. The player can use it twice per floor before it breaks and it's lost for good. However, when the player collects the Tower of Druaga Treasure.png for that level, you can use the Copper Pickaxe one more time without it breaking. The player will also lose it if they try to break an outside wall. The player must not lose it in order to get the Silver Pickaxe.
AC Defeat Tower of Druaga Slime Green.png x3.
AT Draw your sword and allow a Tower of Druaga Slime Green.png to impale itself on your sword.
ATp Defeat a Tower of Druaga Slime Green.png while facing downward.

Treasure: Jet Boots
Tower of Druaga Jet boots.png These winged boots from Ishtar allow Gil to walk at double his normal speed. Gil cannot make it all the way through the tower without them!
AC Defeat Tower of Druaga Slime Black.png x2.
AT You must defeat a Tower of Druaga Slime Black.png from above.
ATp Defeat a Tower of Druaga Slime Black.png without killing a Tower of Druaga Slime Green.png.

Treasure: Healing Potion
Tower of Druaga Potion healing.png This healing potion will grant an extra life. Upon dying, this potion will be consumed instead of one of Gil's lives. Gil will still "die" in the sense that you will start over on the floor that he died on. Note that this potion can only be used once. Even if you die on this floor and re-obtain it, it will not work again.
AC You must defeat a particular Tower of Druaga Knight Blue.png. The correct one is chosen at random. Both Tower of Druaga Knight Blue.pngs may also be killed.
AT You must defeat every Tower of Druaga Slime Green.png, but do not touch any Tower of Druaga Knight Blue.png.
ATp You must defeat a Tower of Druaga Slime Green.png while shaking your sword (tap the sword button). This can be very difficult; try edging up extremely close to a slime while it is between movement cycles. You must be close enough so that when you draw your sword the Tower of Druaga Slime Green.png is killed.

Treasure: Chime
Tower of Druaga Chime.png At the start of each floor, the Chime will ring whenever Gil faces in the direction of a Tower of Druaga Key.png while it is offscreen.
AC Step on the Tower of Druaga Door.png before collecting the Tower of Druaga Key.png.
GB Defeat the Tower of Druaga Mage.png.
AT Draw your sword such that you are pointing it at the Tower of Druaga Door.png, in any direction.
ATp Defeat at least one Tower of Druaga Slime Black.png, then kill the Tower of Druaga Mage.png.

Treasure: White Sword
Tower of Druaga White sword.png The swords that are collected in this game don't necessarily make Gil stronger. But their collection is vital in order to obtain the most powerful sword in the game. Without this sword, none of the other swords will be available to the player.
AC Block the spells of a Tower of Druaga Mage.png with your shield three times while "walking". Movement is not necessary, however, all that is required is to be holding the joystick in a direction. You can be "walking" into a wall while you block the spell (with your sword drawn and your shield to the side of course, or you would not be blocking anything).
AT You must block the spells of a Tower of Druaga Mage.png with your shield five times without ever pressing anything. This is quite difficult to do. Try to position yourself somewhere where you can only be attacked from one direction. What's more, the Tower of Druaga Mage.png will not reappear unless you are standing in the exact center of the square that you occupy. It is even worse that you cannot block from the left with your sword out.
ATp You must collect the Tower of Druaga Key.png without receiving any of the Tower of Druaga Mage.png spells while walking. You may only be hit by the spells if you are standing still. You may kill the mages to make the task easier.

Treasure: Candle
Tower of Druaga Candle.png Possession of this Candle grants the ability to see the ghosts that roam the next few floors, up to floor 10.
AC Touch the north (top) portion of the outer wall of this floor, then face south.
AT Get a Tower of Druaga Sorcerer.png to "set fire" to the Tower of Druaga Door.png.
ATp A Tower of Druaga Sorcerer.png must appear on top of the Tower of Druaga Door.png.

Treasure: Silver Pickaxe
Tower of Druaga Silver pickax.png This pickaxe is stronger than the Copper Pickaxe. It can be used up 2-4 times without breaking it (3-5 times after you touch the Tower of Druaga Treasure.png.) As with all pickaxes, it will be instanly lost when used on an outer wall. The number of times it can be used before it breaks is chosen randomly for each floor (always four in Famicom version). It can be used once before and twice after collecting the Tower of Druaga Treasure.png without any risk of breaking.
AC Break (use twice or use on outer wall) the Copper Pickaxe. Another way, although wasteful, is to purposely die at the point you start with the copper pickaxe still in your inventory.
AT Wait until the Timer turns red, then break the Copper Pickaxe.
ATp The following criteria must be met:
  1. The Copper Pickaxe must not be in your inventory (This means if you lost it previously you can still obtain the silver pickaxe).
  2. The Tower of Druaga Door.png must be open.
  3. The timer must be red and below 60 (the slower countdown, where the Will O' Wisps start appearing).

Treasure: Power Potion
Tower of Druaga Potion power.png The Power Potion increases Gil's energy for the remainder of the floor it was collected on. This allows Gil to take more hits while fighting knights. It is usually not worth the effort of collecting.
AC Move to a row and a column that is different from your starting point, and draw or swing your sword.
AT Once you have collected the Tower of Druaga Key.png, simply draw your sword.
ATp Stand in any direction on top of the Tower of Druaga Door.png and draw your sword.

Treasure: Potion of Energy Drain
Tower of Druaga Potion energy drain.png Not every treasure that you find is a treasure that you will want to obtain. This potion has the opposite effect from the Potion of Power, so avoid it.
AC Step on the position marked A or B on the map.
FC The positions on the map are similar with both triggers at the top of the stage; the first being seven blocks from the left, and the second being eight blocks from the left
GB Walk down the entire extent of the right side of the outer wall, and then all the way back up.
AT Cross paths with the Tower of Druaga Ghost Wizard.png.
ATp Any hardcore Namco fan will recognize the layout of this stage as a slightly altered Pac-Man maze (The slimes play the role of the ghosts). There are four locations where the power pills would reside. You must pass through all of them.

Treasure: Gauntlet
Tower of Druaga Gauntlet.png Collection of the Gauntlet is necessary if you want to obtain the Hyper Gauntlet later on, which holds true power.
AC Block the spell of a Tower of Druaga Slime Red.png with your shield.
GB Exit the stage normally. You will face the first mini-boss fight, two giant-sized slimes. Defeat one of them to collect the Gauntlet.
AT Block the spell of a Tower of Druaga Slime Red.png with your shield, but your sword must be drawn, so you must block the spell on your left.
ATp You must defeat all of the Tower of Druaga Slime Red.png without being hit by any spells (including those of the Tower of Druaga Ghost Mage.png).
