In the World of Ruin, you can visit the Dragon's Neck Coliseum and bet items to get new equipment. Wager an item, then pick a character in your party to fight one-on-one. The fight is automated; you can't control your character, so just make sure to give them your best equipment beforehand. If your character wins, you get a different item. If they lose, you get nothing. Either way, you don't get back the item you wagered. You may want to save right before each wager and reload that save if you lose.

Your opponent and reward for victory is determined by what item you wagered. The table below lists what wager gets what.

  • Betting anything not on this list will usually pit you against Typhon, with an Elixir as the reward.
  • After rescuing Shadow from the cave on the Veldt and getting the Striker, bet the Striker and you'll fight Shadow. If you defeat him, you get back the Striker and he'll join the party.
  • In the GBA version of the game, bet Excalipoor and you'll fight an Onion Dasher. If you win, you not only get a Merit Award, but you'll also face Gilgamesh. The fight against Gilgamesh is a normal battle with your whole party under your control. Defeat him and you gain his magicite.
  • Be careful when you face Tonberry in the Coliseum as he can counterattack with a deadly lore spell called Step Mine or (Traveler in the Gameboy Advance) which can kill you if you taken over 319,968 steps.
