This section details unofficial strategies that may help with completion of the chapter. This may not work for everybody.

The limited enemy reinforcements and vulnerable starting position of the two Thieves make this one of the easiest missions in the game. The player can choose to only bring as many units as they have Emblem Rings and Bracelets, and deploy a low-level unit that will appreciate a chance to catch up in experience. Turn 1 should see the player split their army and simultaneously attack towards the east and west with maximum force; this is the only part of the mission where worrying about who gets the experience from kills is ill-advised. At the end of turn 1, two thieves will spawn, a player who did a strong initial push will find themselves in an excellent position to eliminate the thieves before they make any headway.

Once the thieves are destroyed, the next few turns can be spent fighting a few more enemies near where the thieves spawned, but the player's army should regroup in the initial deployment zone (southern entrance to the map) by turn 11.

At end of turn 11, a somewhat dangerous wave of 3 fliers will spawn, with the player's army in a perfect position to destroy them before they move. An identical, final reinforcement wave will spawn 1 turn later. By this time, the two earlier reinforcement waves (infantry and cavalry) from the north may be closing in on the player's position, along with any non-reinforcement enemies who were provoked into moving. The numerous nearby pillars can be used to stall these attackers until the duck shoot at the main entrance is concluded. If the player's army is very small or otherwise struggling to destroy the enemies faster than they arrive, it's possible to form a strong defensive formation in the pillars and fight at a slower pace.

Once the reinforcements are destroyed, the enemy will be completely passive and the player can clear the rest of the map at their leisure. There are 4 chests with valuable treasure and 8 gauge-recharging powerups that can optionally be converted into experience by Tiki. Attacking the lone enemy unit on the throne room's stairs is safe, it will not provoke Hortensia's party. The throne room itself poses little challenge, with Hortensia preferring dancing over reaching for her moderately dangerous weapons.
