    • Take a drink every time he does his hair flip.
    • Take a drink whenever he hits on anyone.
    • Take a shot when he geeks out over guns.

  • Laguna
    • Take a drink time he gets a leg cramp at a critical moment.
    • Drink every time he misuses or loses track of a metaphor.

  • Kiros and Ward
    • Take a drink every time they snark at Laguna.

  • Seifer
    • Take a drink when he waves his sword around outside of battle.
    • Take a shot when he calls Zell "Chicken-Wuss."
    • Take a drink for every instance of Ho Yay with Squall.

  • FUJIN and Raijin
    • Take a shot for every word Fujin says in caps. EVERY WORD.
    • Take a drink every time Raijin says "Ya know?" No Raijin, I don't know.
    • Take a drink when Fujin kicks Raijin.

Guardian Forces

  • Drink in celebration when you get a new GF.
  • Finish the beverage when a GF reaches max compatibility with any character.
  • Take a drink when a GF learns a new ability.
  • Take a shot when a GF learn a new ability you didn't want it to because you forgot to reset what they were learning.
  • Finish the beverage if your GF ever learns two abilities at the same time under these circumstances: One you were grinding out, the other is what the game defaults to after you've learned an ability, so it's where your "overflow" points go at the end of very specific battles.
  • Take a drink if the animation for Eden's "Eternal Breath" attack made you shit your pants in sheer terror.
    • Take two drinks if it wasn't the animation that scared you, but the fact that the attack could break the damage limit.
  • Drink in celebration every time Odin or Gilgamesh pulls out a Zantetsuken.
    • Take another shot to drown your sorrows if they appear against an enemy you wanted to mug and/or draw.
  • Take a drink when Odin arrives on the scene for the final confrontation with Seifer. Take two when Seifer whips out Zantetsuken Reverse. Finish the glass if you actually expected Zantetsuken to work.

  • Take two shots when you make the ultimate weapon for anyone.
  • Finish your beverage, get another one, and drink the whole thing when you get the Lion Heart.
