Dai-2-Ji Super Robot Taisen Z Saisei-hen Hints & Cheats
Secret Route Split *SPOILERS*There is a hidden count in the game called "Zero Points" that increases when you achieve certain Code Geass-related goals. If you have 5 or more Zero Points by the time you finish Stage 37, Roger and Banjou will save Shirley from being killed by Rolo, and then after Stage 49, you will be given the option to either trust or distrust Zero. Choose "Trust Zero" (the bottom option) to acess this secret route that gives a good ending to the Code Geass storyline.

Secret Unit - Alto's YF-29 DurandalAlto must have a kill count of 70 or higher before Stage 55 (Normal Route) or Stage 57 (Secret Route). His kill count must also be higher than all of the other Macross Frontier characters. Then, on Stage 55 (Normal Route) or Stage 57 (Secret Route), defeat Ranka (giant green-haired girl) and Brera (green-haired man) with Alto to recieve this unit.
Secret Unit - Missile-Equipped Scopedog (usable by Votoms characters)Chirico must have a kill count of 70 or higher before Stage 43. Then, on the second part of Stage 43 (Space Route), Chirico and Fyana must defeat at least 3 enemies each. You will then recieve this unit.
Secret Character and Unit - Lorelei and Danube Alpha 1On Stage 7 (See Kallen Off-->Japan Route), DO NOT ATTACK LORELEI (blonde girl). Convince her with Shotaro (piloting Tetsujin 28). After defeating all other enemies in Stage 7 (See Kallen Off-->Japan Route), Lorelei will challenge Kouji to a 1-on-1 duel. It is now safe to attack her. Defeat her with Kouji (piloting Mazinger Z). If done correctly, Lorelei will run away upon defeat. She will then join you later, on Stage 32 (Earth Route). (NOTE: Even if you satisfied the conditions for her recruitment, she will not join you unless you take the Earth Route after Stage 31. If you want Lorelei in your party, you have to give up Anew.)
Secret Character - Anew (subpilot for Ptolemaios II)Setsuna must have a kill count of 70 or higher before Stage 34. You MUST deploy him on Stage 34 (Space Route). He is not an auto-deploy. Then, on Stage 34 (Space Route), after enemy reenforcements appear, attack BUT DO NOT DEFEAT Anew (purple haired girl) or Milliardo (blonde man) once. Upon doing this, Mr. Bushido (blonde man with black mask) will appear. Defeat him and Ali (red haired bearded man) IN THAT ORDER. Finally, defeat Anew with Lockon's second Trans-Am attack (the one that ends with a close-range headshot barrage). You will know if Anew survived if Lockon has his "happy" portrait in the dialouge right before he retreats. (NOTE: Having Ptolemaios II in Trans-Am mode during Stage 34 (Space Route) may cause a glitch where Anew is piloting nothing.) (NOTE 2: You cannot have both Anew and Lorelei in your party at the same time. You have to give up one or the other. However, it is possible to have both of them alive, if you care about avoiding pointless deaths in the story. Simply fulfill the conditions for Lorelei's recruitment on Stage 7, and then take the Space Route after Stage 31 and save Anew. Lorelei will not be in your party after the split ends, but she'll still be alive out there somewhere.)
New Game Gold GlitchYou need a clear data file from Dai-2-Ji Super Robot Taisen Z Hakai-Hen to perform this glitch. Select New Game on the title screen, you will be prompted to start fresh or carry over a clear data from Hakai-Hen. Select to carry over (the lower option), and then immediately back out to the title screen. Repeat this over and over to amass a large amount of Gold for your New Game. Once you feel you have enough gold, go ahead and start your New Game. (NOTE: The gold obtained in this manner is usable for your entire first playthrough, but may not carry over to a New Game+.)
