So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello I'm Matthew Fletcher, though you can call me Shintaun. I loved
this game so much that I had to write a walkthrough for it. It's as
spoiler free as you can get while still listing boss names. I hope you
enjoy this walkthrough and have a great day playing this game too.

This guide uses the search function for quick and easy access. Ctrl+F is
how most browsers have it set up. Use the last 6 characters of a line.
Example (ABCD). Only for a section provided.

In this walkthrough I will guide you to all items/breakable walls and
such as early as you can reach them. When I list items I mean list the
found ones found on the ground. I will also list every monster in every
room once. Sorry if it get's annoying seeing those same words over and
over.

Because I do not have a Beastiary nor a Quest Section up as I am currently
in need of a break from this walkthrough, I'll provide you links to current
ones. I take no credit for the information in these guides and I'll list
the username of the people who submitted them. But I suggest you use them
until I get my sections up.

If you need to contact me you can email me at shintaun@yahoo.com
I'm also a regular at the Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin boards at gamefaqs.
You'll probably get a quicker responce there. Just put my name in the

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
TIPS AND GENERAL INFORMATION----------------------------------------(TIPS)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Candles and other breakable lights. If you use up any mp they are
guranteed to give you Hearts to restore it. However if your full on
mp and you break one it will give you gold. In 1,10,50,100 increments.
If you get a gold ring those increments change to 10,50,100,500 or
50,100,500,1000 for two gold rings.


Johnathan's Sub Weapons.
He get's many ranging from the tried and true Holy Water to even a Pie!
The more you use any Sub Weapon the stronger it gets. But to be more
precise. If you kill an enemy that you hit with a Sub Weapon, you will
get the number of sp that the enemy is worth added to your Sub Weapon.

When you get the maximum amount of sp for a Sub Weapon you will see in
Blue Text MASTERED on the screen. Mastery changes them in various ways.
To know if your Sub Weapon is already mastered or the amount of sp needed
to master it. Pause the game. Go into Guides. Go into Skills.

Charlotte's Spells.
She get's anything ranging from healing and stat boosts to destructive
spells. She has two levels of casting. Half and Full.

Half casting generally get's you much less power and shorter duration
as well. When you summon Charlotte by pressing R she will only do Half
casting. Likewise if you start to cast a spell and let go of Y before
the Glowing Red Bar is fully filled you will only half cast.

Full Casting get's the full effect of any spell. You know the spell is
fully cast when the Glowing Red bar is completely filled before letting
go of Y. She will also shout the spells name. In other words hold down Y
until you have a glowing red bar to do a fully cast spell.

A special note on stat boosting spells.
If you fully cast with Charlotte and summon Johnathon with A before
switching to Johnathan. You will get the full effect for Johnathan! At
this point you can dismiss Charlotte by pressing A and still retain the
effects of the spell.

I'll put in (?) after the name of every important monster. The ? is
replaced by the following and means.
Subweapon=SW, Spell=S, Quest Item=QI. Rare Monster=RM, Great Drop=GD
Mid Boss=MB, Boss=B, Undead=UD, Dual Crush=DC, Relic=R

All Mid Bosses are replaced with normal monsters after you kill them.
The first time you come across a monster I will tell you the Subweapon or
what not that it drops. But only the first time.

All Sub Weapons and Spells are quest items despite being listed as
what they are.

Only the Bosses in the Nest of Evil can be fought multiple times.

You can only kill those with the undead class using Johnathon's
Undead Killer Whip or Charlotte's Sanctuary Spell.

Never sell a quest item. Some of them you can't get back without doing
either clear game or online shopping.

Rare Monsters only appear under certain conditions. I list these the first
time you can see them.

Great Drops are drops I recommend getting.

I think I covered everything important for now.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Entering the Castle--------------------------------------------------(ENTR)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Enemies: Zombie, Bat, Skeleton(S), Axe Armor(SW), Wight(RM)

Items: Change Cube(R), Call Cube(R), Tome of Arms 1, Short Sword,
Beef Jerkyx2, Knife(SW), Wait Cube(R), Raging Fire(S), Book of Spirits(R),
Head Guard

After the starting Dialogue exit the room to the right.

Welcome to the Castle Entrance. And what castle entrance wouldn't be
complete without it's very own Drawbridge? Drop down and head to the right
to grab the floating blue cube, aptly named Change Cube. These are your
Relics. They let you do more things. This one for example allows you to
switch characters by pressing X.

After that's done go right and jump up the platforms and jump left to grab
the second Relic. This is the Call Cube. Press A so that the weight of you
and your partner cause the switch to lower the drawbridge.

Head right and you'll enter the castle courtyard where you fight two
Zombies. Exit to the right and you'll enter a really small room. Exit
to the right once more.

First room of the castle and you only can kill two zombies and a single
bat here. Oh well go right and drop down to grab Tome of Arms 1 and
head left to grab a Short Sword. Both are better than your current
weapons so equip them. From here on I'll assume your checking new gear
and putting it on as you see fit. Go left and drop down. Attack the wall
on your left. A Beef Jerky should fall out. Exit to the right.

This is a Save room. They will show up on your map as red dots. You can
save at any statue with a Blue Aura. They will also refill your Hp and Mp
free of charge. You can get a refill without saving by saying no when
prompted to save. Exiting and reentering the room will cause the Aura to
return so no worries about limited use. Exit to the left.

Head back up and this time exit to the top right of the room. You can
break a pillar where the cracks are, by attacking it three times. After
you pass through a couple pillars, a Behemoth starts to chase you. Don't
fight! As there is nothing you can do to win. Quickly break through the
pillars and head right. You will reach a dead end. Jump up and grab the
Beef Jerky and stay there until the Behemoth breaks the wall to the right
and leaves. Note after this there will be one Axe Armor and respawning
Zombies in this room. If you kill all the Zombies a Wight will appear!
Exit right.

You get your first Sub Weapon, the Knife. When you use it. You throw two
knives in the direction your facing. To the right is another save room if
you need it. Jump up and exit to the left. In here you fight two Skeletons.
These can drop the Summon Skeleton spell for Charlotte. Exit to the left.

Go left and jump up onto the statue to grab the Wait Cube. Hold down and
press a. Then jump off and push the statue to the left until you partner
can jump without smashing their head into the ceiling. Press X to switch
to your partner and jump up. Go right and obtain Charlotte's first spell
Raging Fire. First, unless the Skeleton's dropped their spell for you. Exit
left.

This room has two Skeletons and an Axe Armor. Axe Armor drops the Axe sub
weapon for Johnathon. It's useful for taking out flying enemies. Exit left.
When you enter the room immediately jump up and into the next room. There
is one Axe Armor here. Grab the Book of Spirits and jump back down into
the previous room.

Head left to grab the Head Guard and then exit to the left. This is a Warp
Room. These will be invaluable in helping you get around different areas.
Return to the previous room and take the bottom right exit. A Talk Scene
will occur here. This is Wind. He will give you quests. Accept his quest
and then head right into the next room.

Another talk scene will occur here. This is Vincent your shop guy. I
recommend buying a map and the Shuriken Sub Weapon for Johnathon. Feel
free to buy another potion if you feel you need it. The Shuriken is one of
the best sub weapons in the entire game. If you throw it while in the air
and at the right distance you can get both shurikens to hit the same enemy.
Once mastered you throw four! I won't give anymore shop recommendations at
this point. I do suggest that you prioritize spells and sub weapons on
your shopping list though.

Go back to Wind and he will give you the Lizard Tail Relic. After another
talk scene exit left. Head down and left and jump on the switch to allow
you to go to the area below. Go to the ledge just above you and head left.
Slide through the gap and enter the room on the left. There will be
dialogue here. After the dialogue enter the portrait.

My Map Percentage was 8.4% for the Castle.
In the menu go to maps to see the % completion you have for each.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Exit right. Here you'll fight two Axe Armors. Head down until you reach

great damage to causing status ailments. Head left and pick up the Green

Bakery. Grab the Paper Airplane Sub Weapon and then head to the right. See
that Cash register hit it. It should pop open. Now hit the Chandelier
above it.

Depending on the amount dropped into the register you'll get a different
item. You can get Sachertorte, NY Cheesecake, Mille-feville, Wheat Roll.
All in rising coin order. You can't get the other two until later. I'll
tell you when. Any time you don't have any of a type of baked good that
appears here it will pop into existence. For now return to the previous
room and exit up. Exit right. Pick up the Rush Dual Crush. This is your
first Dual Crush. Dual Crushes take a LOT of mp and have a cool down time.
So even if you had enough mp to cast it twice you have to wait for the cool
down. Most Dual Crushes also provide invulnerability time during them.

Exit left. Head up and grab the Claymore. Exit right. Here you'll fight an
Axe Armor. Head right and pick up the Sandals. Exit down. Here you'll

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle:Dullahan-------------------------------------------------(DULL)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dullahan
Hp: 600 Exp: 500 Sp: 40
Weak: Blunt, Whip, Lightning
Srong: Ice

Attacks
Lunge: He will thrust his Lance forward. If your on a top ledge he will
thrust it at you. You can dodge this easily by not moving if your on the
ground, unless he's really close and walks into you. Or in the case of the
top ledge, running away. It's also his opening move.

Plunge: He jumps forward into the air and thrusts his lance into the
ground. This will create a shockwave of blades that move forward. You can
dodge this by sliding under him if your close enough. If your not jump up
on the ledge and jump up to the next ledge as he lands. After this move he
is stuck for a little while so kick him while he's down!
Note: On hard he doesn't really get stuck. xD

Homing Head: He will put his head on and launch big projectiles at you
that hurt a lot and go where you were at the start of the move. You can
dodge these easily by moving away from where you were at the start of each
attack. Can be prevented by knocking his head out of the way when he goes
to grab for it. This is almost impossible in most cases unless your using
an overhead swinging weapon, Rock Riot spell or the Axe sub weapon.

Spinning Head: He will throw his head and shoot little projectiles in all
directions which also hurt a lot. Move far away when he goes to throw
crouching in a corner always keeps me safe. You can also hit the heads
away. Only occurs when Dullahan manages to do Homing Head.
Note: On hard he will launch big projectiles that spiral sortof outwords
at the same time as this move. I'll leave judging the distance up to you.
But your pretty much going to have to crouch and attack the spinning heads
away once you notice which spot is safe.If your still having problems you
can use a Dual Crush for limited Inulnerability when this move comes up.

Strategies
Johnathon should use Shurikens for some quick damage while keeping enough
mp just in case you need to use a Dual Crush for Invulnerability. Jump
attacking with an overhead swing weapon is a great way to keep Dullahan
from grabbing his head and for dealing damage.

Charlotte should use the Rock Riot spell to cause great damage and keep
Dullahan from grabbing his head.

The Holy Lightning Dual Crush will do a decent amount of damage to
Dullahan but is best saved for if he Grabs his head so that you can damage
him safely without getting hurt.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Castle After Haze----------------------------------------------------(CAZE)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Enemies: Golem, Skull Archer, Bat, Une, Zombie Dragon(MB), Merman,
Frozen Shade, Slime, Invisible Man, Skelerang(SW), Persephone, Larva,
Catoblepas, Lerajie(SW), Mimic, Great Armor, Behemoth(B), Keremet(B)

Boiled Starfish, Potion, Ice Fang(S), Don Quixote, Stone of Flight(R),
Partisan, Goggles, Axe Bomber(DC), Iron Leggings, Bathrobe, Nun's Habit

Accept the Supersonic Punch Quest. Go back to the City of Haze and head to
the Butchery. If you don't remember where it's at. Just head to the left
most room that's 3 squares higher on the map, than your starting point. In
this room you should see hanging sacks of meat. Unequip your weapon on
Johnathon and punch the hanging meat. Ground Meat should fall out. Return
to Wind at this point. He will give you the Bullet Punch. A fairly good
fist weapon that strikes twice per attack. It's quite useful so don't sell
it.

Head to the room just before the right most save room on your map. It
should be just after the room where the Behemoth chased you. Just a note
this is where I start counting the enemies again. Jump off your partner's
shoulders to grab the Whip Skill 1 Relic and then exit right twice. Pick
up the Spear and then enter the Boos Door to the right.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle:Behemoth-------------------------------------------------(BEHE)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Behemoth
Hp: 800 Exp: 1000 Sp: 45
Weak: Piercing, Fire, Holy
Strong: Dark

Attacks
Charge: This attack has two variants. In the first one he shows he's going
to charge by puffing a bit of steam and slides his foot along the ground
twice just prior to charging off screen. Dodge this by jumping up onto a
platform and then jumping over him as he runs by. The second version is
where he slides a leg back and then leaps forward before charging off
screen. Dodge this by running forward and sliding under him. After a
little while he will charge back on screen and stop about in the middle of
the room.

Intestinal strike: In this attack he opens hi mouth and his intestines
rush forward to hit you. You can dodge this by either running away if
there is a decent space towards the wall or by crouching next to the wall.

Puke: He tilts his head upwards and pukes at you. You can dodge this by
ducking in the corner or being very close to him.

Strategies
Johnathon's Shurikens are a great way to rack up damage.
Darts are another nice choice since you can keep a distance from the
Behemoth while hurting him. A simple short hop will net you a bulls-eye. A
note about the darts. They are actually doing more damage than they show
if your getting bulls-eyes.

Charlotte's Ice Needle is the best spell you can use on him.
Rock Riot can do similar damage. But is a bit unsafe in comparrisson.

Other than that just attack him. A great weapon is the Spear you find
outside of the Boos Room. Because it has great reach and is piercing.

Strategies
Push the pot over to a ledge. Put Ice Fang on Charlotte and have Johnathon
attack the pot.(preferably with Bullet Punch) Have Charlotte stand on
the first ledge and spam Ice Fang for a very easy win. I did 70 damage
three times per cast.
Another strategy is to equip your strongest weapon on Johnathon and jump
up and attack while Charlotte attacks the pot non stop. His Axe Sub weapon
will hit twice as well. All in all this way is much less effective than
using Charlotte. And you have to stop from time to time to avoid breaking
the Dark Orbs.

Boss Battle:Astarte--------------------------------------------------(ASTA)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Astarte
Hp: 1500 Exp: 3000 Sp: 50
Weak: blunt, Whip, Piercing
Strong: Fire, Ice, Lightning, Dark, Holy

Attacks
Charm: She'll say Temptation and Hearts will fly out of her at you. If
Johnathon is out he will be Charmed. At this point Johnathon will attack
you using whatever you had on him when he got charmed. Meaning you can't
take off his gear to make him less lethal once it's happened. To dodge
this simply take Johnathon off of the screen by switching to Charlotte.
If Johnathon gets charmed you can use a Dual Crush to get him back.
Note: If you beat this Boss while Johnathon is Charmed you will get to
hear Charlotte make fun of Johnathon. Well sortof.

Tornado: She will pull out what a gold rod and a Tornado will fly out of
it at you. You can dodge this by jumping over it.

Thrust: She slides forward and throws he veil at you to cause damage. You
can dodge this by Jumping up or running away.

Green Orb: She pulls out a staff and jumps up and back spraying green
orbs at an angle. To dodge this either get behind her or run away.

Strategies
1000 Blades is easily the most destructive thing you can do against her
almost killing her outright!
Johnathon's Bullet punch can do quite a number on her with 20 damage per
hit and striking in rapid succession. Back dash canceling his Dart sub
weapon can work nicely and keep you at a safe distance.
His Shurikens can devastate with about 41 damage per hit on a Mastered
Shuriken. So that's 164 damage per throw if you can get all 4 Shurikens to
hit!
Charlotte's Rock Riot and Summon Skeleton can do about 38 with each hit at
this point.

Boss Battle:Legion---------------------------------------------------(LEGI)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Legion
Hp: 2000 Exp: 4000 Sp: 50
Weak: Piercing, Fire, Holy
Strong: Dark

Attacks
Shedding: Legion will let several corpses fall. These corpses will walk
in one direction when they land. Any attack will instantly kill them and
they will go away if they touch the wall as well.

Peek-A-Boo Beam: After killing off a section of Legions body a tentacle
will be exposed. It will open the end of the tentacle closest to you and
fire a beam in a small sweeping motion. You can easily avoid this by
moving out of it's small sweeping range.

Spinning Beam: Four of Legions tentacles will open and then go in a
constant beam as he spins. You can avoid this by jumping through the
tentacles as they spin or by running away from the beam. Legion will
reverse the spin about halfway through.

Spread Beam: All tentacles will open at slightly different intervals and
then fire in the order opened. You can avoid this by not being in their
way. Where they fire is fixed with this attack.

Note: When you deal enough damage to Legions Core all of his corpse
sections will fall off.

Strategy
Johnathon's Bible, Javelin and Axe are great ways to peel off Legions
body. Shuriken is the best Subweapon to use after the body is peeled off.

Charlotte's Ice Fang is hands down the best way to peel off Legions body
at this point. When the Body is peeled away Summon Gunman will be the best
spell to use. Ice Fang comes in at a close second.

After the body sections are peeled away 1000 Blades is hands down the
quickest and most effective way to kill Legion.

Boss Battle:Stella---------------------------------------------------(STEL)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Stella
Hp: 2500 Exp: 0 Sp: 0
Weak: Whip, Piercing, Fire, Lightning
Strong: Ice

Attacks
Thrust: She thrusts at you with her sword. She does this either in an
upper cut fashion if you go over her or by thrusting forward. You can
avoid this by going away from her or even by ducking. Though she tends to
do this more when your in the air.

Secret Furious Wave: She will go to the ground and then scream the name
of the attack before attacking forward that causes a huge green wave to
rush forward. You can dodge this simply by jumping over it.

Dodge: Whenever she just finished an attack she will dodge any Sub Weapon.
But only once per attack cycle because she immediately goes into an attack
after Dodging.

Hurrican Slash: In the middle of the air she will yell Hurricane or There
and then strike downward. This will send out a green wave in the middle of
the air forward. Usually it's best to jump over it.

Crescent Moon: She will slash in several places in the air leaving little
moons in place. They will start spinning towards you in the order they
were created and will go to where you were at the start of their spin.
You can easily avoid them by moving out of the way. No homing here. She
will perform other attacks as the moons fly at you.

Strategy
Charlotte
Tempest is hands down the best non Dual Crush to take her down. It will
hit for 6 times if you do it right. Which is generally letting off Tempest
as Stella does her Furious Wave. She will Dodge but it always goes into
the Tempest from my experience. Another great spell is Summon Gunman
since Stella is almost guaranteed to do her Furious Wave attack if your on
the ground. Most of Charlottes other spells are dodged like mad by Stella
so are pretty worthless.

Johnathon
Nebula's special really racks up damage on Stella however it can be
somewhat annoying to set it up. Attacking with a strong weapon like Long
Spear will generally do more damage over time. Shurikens are realistically
the only Sub Weapon I'd recommend for this fight.

Dual Crushes
I'd only recommend Holy Lightning here it does a ton of damage. Combined
with Tempest during the cool down time of the Dual Crush this is the best
way to kill her.

Boss Battle Complete------------------------------------------------------

After you beat Stella there will be more Dialogue. Return to Wind at this
point. There will be some dialogue. Equip all 3 pieces of the Nun's set.
Talk to Wind and accept all of his new quests. Complete Zephyr and the
Martial Art. Remember slide from the direction to direction fast and hold
in the final direction as you press Y. Use up most of your mp before or
after talking to him again. You should of completed 5 quests now. Unless
you were fortunate enough to have 777 as the final part of your gold.
Return to the Nation of fools at this point. Go to the bottom left room.

All the way to the left is a statue. Press up at it. You should see quest
successful. Go to any candles you desire at this point and make the final
3 digits of your gold 777. Remember the gold values
Blue=1 gold, Brown=10 gold, Silver=50 gold, and Yellow=100 gold.
You can also sell some items if you'd like. Just don't sell any of the
quest items. When that's done talk to Wind again. You should only have the
Poison vs Poison quest remaining at this point. Return to where you fought
Stella. Exit left.

There will be some dialogue here and your cog will get used. Exit left.
Here is a simple task. You should have the person on the top motorcycle
at the far left at all times for the final part.Have your partner stay on
the top motorcycle as you go up onto the bottom. Immediately start ducking.
After you pass the obstacle that you were to duck under switch to your
partner and duck with them. When you switch to the top for the section
time be prepared to jump over an obstacle and land on the other side on
your motorcycle again. Immediately duck again. Doing this correctly will
cause the motorcycles to destroy the wall.

To the right is a Save Room. Exit up. Here you'll fight two Blue Crows,
two Harpies and a Dogether. Head right and grab the Silver Leggings.
Return to the previous room and take the top right exit this time. In this

is a Save Room. Exit up. Exit right. Enter the Boss Door on the right.

Boss Battle:Dagon----------------------------------------------------(DAGO)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dagon
Hp: 1800 Exp: 6000 Sp: 55
Weak: Lightning, Holy
Strong: Ice, Dark
Note: Only way to hurt him is to hit the top head.

Attacks
Leap: Simply put he leaps to the other side. You can stand in the middle
and not get hurt.

Floating Explosives: Dagon will release multiple explosives that float to
the waters surface. When he sucks in the water they will attach to the
ground. You destroy these by doing enough damage to them. If you touch
them they blow up for decent damage.

Water Cannon: Dagon will suck up all the water in the room. He will then
launch it back at you in the form of a Water Cannon. You can avoid this by
Dark Rift and Clear Skies will last more than his entire Water Cannon
sequence. Or you can use Tempest as the Water Cannon is about to hit you.
I advise ducking because Tempest doesn't last long.

Strategies
Charlotte:
Use Tempest where he's going to land when he does Leap and Rock Riot when
he's just sitting there. The only other thing she could really do when not
Negating the Water Cannon is a Str Boost for Johnathon.

Johnathon:
If you picked up a Heaven's Sword from the Nation of Fools then your in
luck. This is the easiest way to kill Dagon especially if you have
Charlotte cast Str Boost. Second easiest way is to use Javelin. Just jump
and throw. You should be able to manage three hits per Javelin. Shuriken
would be a better choice except you can't land all four hits as often due
to Dagon sucking up the water time and time again. You have to be swimming
close to Dagons Head to actually have all four hit.

Dual Crushes:
Holy Lightning does a real number on Dagon. Combine that with Heaven's
Sword during the cool downs. You'll have the best way to take him down at
this point.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle Complete------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

After beating Dagon, exit right. Grab the Toad Morph and exit
right. Warp to the start and return to the Castle.

My Map Percentage was 99.2% for Forest of Doom.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Castle after Doom-------------------------------------------------(CAOM)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Enemies:Harpy, Razor Bat, Succubus(GD), Killer Doll, Medusa Head(S),
Gaibon, Flying Armor(GD), Imp, Slogra, Wyvern, Malachi(S), Spin Devil,
Dead Crusader(GD), Death(B), Stella&Loretta(B), Whip's Memory(B)

Items:2000 Gold Bagx2, Hp Max Upx2, Milican's Sword, Sanctuary(S),
Holy Veil, Thunderbolt(S), Mp Max Upx2, Rose Stem Whip, Blue Cape,
Int Boost(S), Combat Beret, Open Veil, Piercing Beam(S),

Exit right. Exit bottom left. Here you'll fight a Harpy. Exit left twice.
Use Toad Morph to get through the narrow gap and grab two 2000 Gold Bags.
Exit right three times. Ride the water system up to the next door and exit
right three times. Here you'll fight two Razor Bats and a Succubus. Both of
Succubus' drops are great. Exit right. Here you'll fight three Succubi.
Exit right three times. Jump up on the platform next to the right wall.
Double Jump and attack to destroy the wall here. Enter and grab an Hp Max
Up. Exit left. Exit bottom right.

Step on the switch to cool down the flames. They will still hurt you so
don't touch them. Return to Wind now. Unless you haven't killed 1500
enemies at this point you should only have The Gambler quest remaining. If
you picked up the other cards we are missing Spade and Heart. Return to
the City of Haze now. It's the portrait just to the left of Wind. On the
right hand side of the map you should see two very tall rooms. Go to the
right one and take the top left exit. Use Toad Morph to get through the
narrow gap and grab the Milican's Sword.

This brought my map percentage up to 98.7% for City of Haze. Now go to
Sandy Grave. In case you forgot which portrait is Sandy Grave. It's the
one on the far right. Go to the room just above the Bottom Right room.
Use the Toad Morph to get through that small gap at the bottom of the room
to get the Sanctuary spell. Sanctuary allows Charlotte to kill enemies who
have Red in their name. I had 98.7% map percentage when I left Sandy Grave.
Now return to the Nation of Fools portrait. In case you forgot, this
Portrait is just left of the middle of the map.

Go to the top Warp Room and exit right four times. You should be in a two
square room with a narrow path. Use the Toad Morph to grab the Holy Veil.
Return to Wind for some dialogue. Warp to the right most Warp room. By
where you fought Stella. Exit left. Exit top right. Exit right. Here
you'll fight a Killer Doll. Use Toad Morph to get through the narrow
space. Exit up. Here you'll fight three Imps. Exit left. Here you'll fight
respawning Medusa Heads. Head to the top right corner of the room to grab
the Thunderbolt Spell.

Head to the top left corner of the room to grab a Hp Max Up. Exit left.
Here you'll fight a Gaibon. Attack the wall to the left for a Mp Max Up.
This max up ties into another one somewhere. So if one is found the other
vanishes as well. Research being done on it. Exit up. Here you'll fight a
Slogra. Exit up. Here you'll fight two Killer Dolls. Exit left. Here you'll
fight respawning Medusa Heads and a Flying Armor. Head left and grab the
Rose Stem Whip. Exit top right. Here you'll fight three Imps. Exit top
left. Here you'll fight Slogra and a Gaibon. Head to the top left corner
to grab a Blue Cape. The middle right exit is to a Warp Room.

Exit top right. The right room is a Save Room. If you Value your game file
you will not skip the following Boss's Dialogue. It is a common glitch
that if you skip his Dialogue the game won't count him as beaten and you
will not unlock the quests that his death flags. And worse yet if you
saved immediately after taking him down your file can be permanently
ruined in that you won't be able to progress at all. With all that said.
Enter to the Boss Room. There will be some dialogue and the battle will
start.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle:Death-------------------------------------------------(DEAT)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Death
Hp: 4444 Exp: 0 Sp: 0
Weak: N/A
Strong: Dark
Note: Don't skip the dialogue after you beat him or else you'll mess up
your file. He has two types of forms. His Gray form which he starts as
is weaker to magical attacks. His White Form is weaker to physical
attacks.

Attacks
Strike: Death will attack horizontally or vertically depending on where
he is in relation to you. He will either raise his Scythe over head or
will raise it over his shoulder as a warnign he's about to strike. You
can dodge them by jumping over or walking to the side depending on which
way he's attacking from.

Summon Sickles: Several Sickles will spawn at random places and then move
slowly towards you. You can dodge these by jumping over them or moving
to the side depending on how they approach. Dark Rift and Anti Air easily
takes care of them.
Note: Depending on his form the Sickles will be grey or red.

Chain Cage: Death creats a creates a huge spinning cage of Chain arms. He
then throws his Scythe which will bounce around. Use your own discretion
when moving around or jumping over the Scythe. You can walk through the
Chains with no ill effect.

Ensnare: Death will Summon 4 portals which will launch a Chain arm from
time to time. If they grab you you will be stuck and you will have to rely
on your partner to break it in time before Death causes you massive
damage. You can avoid this entirely by sending your parnter into the
center via the touch screen. When Death is about to strike your partner
unsummon them.

Strategies
Charlotte:
Thunderbolt is the best way to damage his Grey Form. Tempest and Summon
Skeleton come in at a close second. Casting Str Boost to help Johnathon
during the White form is advised.

Johnathon:
Out of all your Sub Weapons I'd recommend using only the Bible or
Shurikens on his White Form. Other than that just attack with your
strongest weapon or Heaven's Sword. Johnathon is worthless during the
Grey form.

Dual Crush:
I don't recommend using any Dual Crushes here at all.

Boss Battle Complete------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you win for the love of all things sane do not skip the dialogue!
After the dialogue. Exit left. Hit the glowing statue thing to activate
the elevator. Exit left. Here you'll fight two Imps and a Killer Doll.
Grab the Int Boost Spell. Exit right. Go down all the way and get into the
bottom part of the elevator. Go up twice and then walk left. Climb up to
grab the Combat Beret. Drop to the bottom to grab the Open Veil. Return
to the elevator and go to the bottom again. Get in the top elevator and go
up once. Exit left three times. Here you'll fight two Succubi.

The top left room is a Warp Room. Grab the Hp Max Up at the bottom of this
room. Exit down. The room to the right is a Save Room. Exit left. Here
you'll fight a Wyvern. Exit left twice. Jump on the switch to blow open a
shorcut. Exit right three times. Exit up. Exit left. Here you'll fight
four Razor Bats and 2 Malachis. Exit left. Exit up. Here you'll fight a
Dead Crusader and a Spin Devil. Dead Crusader drops the Impervious Mail
which has a 50% chance to negate any attack. It's one of my favorite
armors. The best protection I've seen it offer was 14 negates in a row!

Exit right. Here you'll fight a Spin Devil and two Flame Demons. Exit
right. Here you'll fight a Wyvern. Exit up. Here you'll fight a Dead
Crusader, a Spin Devil and a Succubus. Head to the top left corner and
grab the Piercing Beam Spell. Exit up. Here you'll fight two Flame Demons.
Exit left. Here you'll fight two Spin Devils and a Ruler's Sword. Exit
left. Here you'll fight a Dead Crusader. Jump up onto the 2nd left
platform. And break the wall. Inside is a Mp Max Up. Exit bottom left.
Here you'll fight two Succubi. Exit right. Exit top right.

Here you'll fight a Final Guard. Both of his drops are great. He drops the
Sub Weapon Defensive Form and the Final Sword. Final Sword is the
physically strongest overhead swing sword in the game. The best way to
kill him for his drops is to first hit him with 1000 Blades. They throw 50
knives each will do 1 dmg. However unless your REALLY CLOSE all 50 won't
hit because when the move ends all airborne daggers vanish. So don't be
that close and cast Luck Boost when you finish with the daggers. 1-3 hits
should be all it takes from here. Exit right.

The top right room is a Save Room and the bottom right is a Warp Room.
Exit Down. Here you'll fight a Dead Crusader. Exit up. You can exit up for
some dialogue. Exit top left. Enter the Boss Room. After some dialogue the
fight begins.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle:Sisters--------------------------------------------------(SIST)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Stella
Hp: 2500 Exp: 0 Sp: 0
Weak: Whip, Piercing, Fire, Lightning
Strong: Ice
Note: Dies if Loretta dies.

Attacks
Strike: A simple overhead strike. As she starts to swing she flies at you.
You can dodge this simply by moving in the opposite direction.

Ice Blade: Loretta starts to spin gathering ice and Stella moves in front
of Loretta. Loretta then surrounds Stella's blade in ice. This attack
causes massive damage. Also like her strike she will move towards you.
The range of her movement is rather limited and her Ice Blade shatters on
impact with the ground. So moving away from her is your best bet. Behind
being the better option.

Loretta
Hp: 2500 Exp: 0 Sp: 0
Weak: Whip, Piercing, Fire
Strong: Ice
Note: Dies if Hp Stella dies. If you hit her enough during one of her
spells you'll cancel it.

Attacks
Ice Fall: A huge magic dais appears above Loretta and huge shards of ice
drop down. Since the ice always falls directly below dodging is fairly
easy. Just move away from the dais if you like.

Blizzard: A magic dais appears in front of Loretta which shoots several
large snow flakes at you. You can dodge this by going behind her.

Blizzard Wolves: Like Blizzard but only does more damage and in the shape
of wolf heads. She only does this during Critical Hp and you can dodge it
by going behind her.

Ice Shield: Loretta starts to spin and gains an aura as an ENORMOUS ice
cube appears. All it does really is push you around. You can slide under
it if you'd like. Stella will slice through the Ice eventually.

Strategies
Have Charlotte start casting Sanctuary immediately and move Johnathon
forward. They always go after the player controlled Character. So keep
Charlotte on screen as you keep the Sisters distracted. What don't have
Sanctuary? Go to Sandy Grave and in the room one above the bottom right.
Is a room with a rolling Boulder. Use Toad Morph to go through the narrow
passage at the bottom of the room. Killing the Sisters will result in a
Game Over.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle Complete------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you win there will be some dialogue. If you've mastered the Shuriken
you can easily handle an Optional Boss that you just got access to. I will
list it now. You access this fight by leaving the room you beat the
Sisters in and then returning to it and talking to them. Say your ready
and prepare to fight. Johnathon will be by himself here.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle:Whip's Memory--------------------------------------------(WHIP)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Whip's Memory
Hp: 5000 Exp: 0 Sp: 0
Weak: Dark
Strong: Holy
Note: His attacks hurt A LOT.
Attacks
Whip Lash: A simple attack with the whip. Jump over it or move away your
choice.

Cross: He throws a cross at you. Jump over it or move away your choice.

Axe: He will throw an Axe if you jump over him and he isn't prepared to
do anything else. Keep moving in a direction while airborne and it should
miss.

Knife: He throws two knives at you. He uses this as a counter attack to
any Sub Weapon thrown parallel to the ground. You can avoid this by
jumping over it.

Dash Strike: He jumps up slightly and back and then zooms across the
ground VERY fast. Jump over him to avoid it.

Grand Cross: Stay real close to him for awhile and he will glow and do
this move.

Holy Water: He throws holy water at you that trails forward. You can jump
over it or run away your choice. He will only do this if you hurt him
enough.

Strategies
Mastered Shuriken is the best way to go. Chances are your mp is not going
to last long enough for your Shurikens to kill him. So you might want to
bring some ethers if that's all you plan on doing.

The Nebula whip is another great plan. As it has incredible range so you
can keep your distance. However the damage leaves something to be desired.
I prefer Heaven's Sword to it as you can deal much more damage due to the
Heaven's Sword being able to hit multiple times. If you do use this method
I advice you to use the Offensive Form Sub Weapon for added damage.

Another great method is the Cream Pie Sub Weapon. It is an attack that
arcs down when thrown. So you can be a respectable distance as you throw
it. The fact that it does Dark damage and costs almost no mp helps
considerably.

And an insanely cheap method. Equip the Spiked boots to increase your drop
kicking damage and just drop kick him like mad. If he pauses for any
reason flee behind him. Because he's either going to throw an axe or
initiate Grand Cross! This method is humorous but can be boring and take
awhile. It probably is most fun when used to pass time while your mp
restores itself for more Shurikens.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle Complete------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you still can't beat him. Wait until you either Level up some more,
obtain the Holy Mail or obtain the Ancient Armor. Both armors are found
later and I'll remind you about their usefulness then. If you won, then
congrats. You have the best whip in the game! Regardless of whether you
win or lose return to Wind. There will be some dialogue. However if you
won against the Whip's Memory then it's dialogue takes priority and the
other one won't happen until you visit Wind again.

Time for quests again! You should have only the Build your power quest
complete. Time to ditch your money! Oh Vincent. What's this another
dialogue? You can cure him if you want. It only impacts his appearance and
a few lines in the ending. You can beat him up and make him run away
crying now. So torture! Ahem. Get rid of your gold. Once Abandon Greed is
complete. Save your Game and Yes I'm serious. Turn off your Ds and change
the game clock. Change your Ds Time to either 00:00 or 12:00. Turn the
game back on and talk to Wind.

This should leave Defeat the Ghoul King, The Gambler and Build your
Strength 2. All other quests should be done by now if you've been picking
up all the quest items as I point them out. Return to the Sisters and Exit
left. You should be in a room with 5 portraits. Enter the right most one
to Dark Academy.

My Map Percentage was 94.7% for Dracula's Castle.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dark Academy---------------------------------------------------------(DARK)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Enemies:Mandragora, Dead Warrior(GD), Toad, Alura Une, Fleaman,
Wakwak Tree, Dragonfly, Black Crow(S), Lightkeeper, Minotaur(GDx2),
Vapula(S), Old Axe Armor(GD), Ghoul, Heavy Armor(SW&GD), Witch,
Aliorumnas(GD), Ruler's Sword, Lesser Demon(GD), Final Guard(SW&GD),
Student Witch, Malphas, Demon Head, The Creature(B)

Items:Owl Morph(S), Gold Plate, Hp Max Up, Flame Whip, Noodle Bunx2,
Divine Storm(DC), Mp Max Up, New York Steak, 2000 gold bag,

Exit left for a Warp Room. Exit left twice. Here you'll fight two Toads,
three Mandragoras, and a Dead Warrior. Dead Warrior drops Samurai Plate
which is one of the best Armors in the game. Exit left. Here you'll fight
a Mandragora. Exit left. Here you'll fight four Toads, two Alura Une, and
two Wakwak Tree. Wakwak spawns Fleamen. Exit left twice. Here you'll fight
two Dragonflies and two Black Crows. Black Crow drops the Summon Crow
Spell. The top left room is a Save Room. Exit bottom left. Here you'll
fight two Black Crows and a Lightkeeper. Exit left. Exit Middle Right.

Grab the Owl Morph Spell. Now that you have this there is no reason why in
any portrait you can't get 100% map. Exit left. Exit top right. Here
you'll fight four Black Crows and a Minotaur. Minotaur drops Bullova which
is the second best axe in the game and he drops Hercules Ring. Hercules
Ring makes it so that you don't get stunned when hit so it's incredibly
useful. Head right and grab the Gold Plate. Exit left twice. Here you'll
fight a Vapula. Vapula drops the Hex Spell. This is one of the best spells
in my opinion. Exit left twice. Use the Owl Morph to exit up.

Here you'll fight three Imps and two Old Axe Armors. Old Axe Armor drops
the Ancient Armor which when worn causes the wearer to take 10% hp damage
rounded down. So at most you can survive 10 hits from anything without
curing! This should make your fight against Whip's Memory a cakewalk. Exit
bottom Left. Here you'll fight five Ghouls and a Heavy Armor. Heavy Armor
drops the Wrecking Ball Sub Weapon and the best Defensive armor. Sadly the
armor comes with a speed penalty. Head left and grab the Hp Max Up. Exit
right. Exit down. Here you'll fight three Imps.

Head down and break the bell then grab the Flame Whip. Exit bottom left.
No the ghost doesn't mean anything. Exit right. Exit top left. Here you'll
fight a Minotaur. Head left and grab the Noodle Bun. Exit right. Exit up.
Exit top left. Here you'll figth two Witches and two Aliorumnas.
Aliorumnas drops the Dalmatica which is ideally the best Armor for
Charlotte's spells. Exit left. Here you'll fight a Ruler's Sword. Break
the cracked ceiling and Exit up using Owl Morph. Grab the Divine Storm Dual
Crush. Exit down. Exit left.

Here you'll fight three Dragonflies and a Lesser Demon. Lesser Demon drops
the Skull ring. Which is the best ring for raising Int. Only useful during
Mental Training 3 quest. Due to the curse effect. Get if you want. Also
can be used for the over coming the curse quest. Break the edge of the
second platform to get Powdered Milk. Exit left. Here you'll fight a Final
Guard. Exit left. Here you'll fight a Toad and a Dragonfly. Exit middle
right. Here you'll fight three Toads. Head right and grab the Mp Max Up.
Exit left. Exit bottom right.

Here you'll fight a Minotaur and a Black Crow. Exit right. Here you'll
fight two Student Witches. Exit bottom left. We'll be back here soon. Exit
right. Exit Bottom Right. Here you'll fight two Witches and four Student
Witches. Exit left. Exit top right. Here you'll fight a Malphas. Exit
right. Here you'll fight three Witches. The room to the right is a Save
Room. Exit bottom left. Here you'll fight nine Imps. Exit left. Break the
bottom right wall and enter it. Here you'll fight a Malphas. Head right
and grab the Mercury Boots. Exit left. Exit bottom left.

Here you'll fight two Black Crows and a Dead Warrior. Notice the Hanging
Skeleton? It will sometimes have flesh when you enter. Exit left. Here
you'll fight two Dragonflies. The top right room is a Warp Room. Exit
middle right. Here you'll fight two Minotaurs. This is the best room to
gain Sp. Especially if you have two Master rings a whopping 80 sp per fight
is nice. They even die fast for you, especially with the Flame Whip or the
upgraded Vampire Killer's critical art. Now that you've reached this room
I'll tell you something.

You need to master Cross, Bible, Holy Water, and Javelin for quests. I
know you don't have the Cross yet but you will soon. Exit left three times.
Here you'll fight two Black Crows. Those bloody hand prints are nice but
there's nothing hidden to them. Exit left. Here you'll fight three Toads,
a Minotaur and a Dragonfly. Exit left. Here you'll fight a Demon Head and
two Lightkeepers. Exit left twice. Here you'll fight four Ghouls and a
Vapula. Exit left. Break the Platform just above you as you enter.
Grab the New York Steak. The bottom left room is a Save Room.

Exit top right. In this room you'll fight twelve Black Crows. Head right
and grab the 2000 gold bag and the Noodle Bun. Exit left. Enter the Boss
door at the bottom right.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle:The Creature---------------------------------------------(CREA)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Creature
Hp: 4000 Exp: 5000 Sp: 60
Weak: Whip, Piercing
Strong: Lightning

Attacks
Stomp: The Creature kneels before jumping up and forward a bit. You can
dodge this by moving either way.

Missile: The Creature's elbow opens to reveal a missile. This missile
will be launched to where you were when his elbow opened. You can dodge
this by Jumping away. Spells like Dark Rift and Clear Skies negate this
attack.
Note: Clear Skies will just cause the missile to blow up instantly. If you
are within the blast range you will still get hurt.

Lightning: The Creature will extend both of his arms forward and shoot
Lightning wherever you were standing when he extended his arms forward.
You can avoid this by moving moving a decent distance from where you were.
Note: If you were in the air when he positions his arms he will shoot it
there.

Machine Gun: The Creature's elbow opens to reveal a Machine gun. He will
do a sweep down and then back up. You can double jump over the bullets.
Spells like Dark Rift and Clear Skies negate this attack. Weapon attacks
can destroy the bullets. So a whip can make a good shield too. Holding in
the whip lets the whip fall down as a Shield and when a bullet would hit
your head just have to tap up and it's stopped.

Grab: If you are really close he will move his arm back and then grab you.
After he picks you up he causes an explosion. You can avoid this by moving
away when he pulls his arm back.

Strategies
Johnathon:
Heavens Sword is a nice choice since it can hit 3 times per throw if done
right. If you have the unlocked Vampire Killer it's critical art does very
good damage.
As for sub weapons Holy Water or Shurikens your best bet.
You'd have to try to not be able to get all 4 Shurikens to hit. And Holy
water hits multiple times.

Charlotte:
Dark Rift is an awesome spell especially if your controlling Johnathon.
Since it sucks in all of The Creatures Projectiles and can deal decent
damage to The Creature.
Salamander does a great deal of damage if you could afford to buy it.
Time Stop...This is so unbelieavably cheap. You cast it and then use
Johnathons Sub Weapon Bwaka Knife/Boomerang right next to The Creature.
Time Stop will have the weapon perpetually stopped and deal damage at an
insane rate. You can only have one Boomerang out but you can have three
Bwaka Knives!!! So short hop and pull them out for insane damage.

Dual Crush:
1000 Blades does an insane amount of damage. The best time to start this
is as The Creature starts to do Machine Gun jump over him and start. The
second best time is when he jumps. Just move behind him and let it rip.
Sadly this way you'll probably be hit out of it but he dies fast enough
anyways.

Boss Battle Complete------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you win Exit right twice and return to the Castle.

My Map Percentage was 100% for Dark Academy.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Revisiting with Owl--------------------------------------------------(FOWL)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Enemis:

Items:Aura Blast(SW), All Boost(S), Sachertorte(QI), Healing Mail, Kaiser
Knuckles, Lorica, Dark Gate(DC)

Alright now that we can fly let's get those items we couldn't before. Also
all portraits we've completed should have 100% map when we finish. First
go to the bottom of the Elevator room. If you forgot where that is. It is
only a few squares right of The Save point near the 5 portrait room.
Transform into the Owl and fly up the left shaft to get the Aura Blast Sub
Weapon. Next go to the room that is just right of the left most section of
the map. Transform into the Owl and fly up and then to the left. This put
my Castle Map up to 95.1% Grab the All Boost Spell.

Now return to the City of Haze. That would be the portrait next to Wind.
Return to the room where you did that Cart puzzle. It will be the longest
room on your map. Break the ceiling around the middle of it. Transform
into the Owl and fly up. Grab the Sachertorte and head left to grab the
Healing Mail. This put my City of Haze map at 100%. Return to the castle
and go to the Sandy Grave this time. It is the bottom right portrait. Head
to the room left of the first Save Point. Transform into the Owl and fly
to the upper left part of the room to grab the Kaiser Knuckles.

Now go to the Rolling Boulder room. It's one up from the bottom right room.
Transform into the Owl and fly up the right shaft. Grab the Lorica. This
put my Sandy Grave map at 100%. Return to the Castle. Now go to the Forest
of Doom. Go to the room thats two down and one right of the middle Warp
Room. Break the ceiling at the right of the room. Transform into the Owl
and fly up. Grab the Dark Gate Dual Crush. This put my Forest of Doom map
at 100%. Return to the Castle. This time go to Wind. You should have two
quests beaten on that list. Spear of Legend and Build your Strength 2.

Now get your intelligence up to 100. I'll list the best Intelligence
boosting gear for this. We'll be using Charlotte.

Dalmatica=10 Int found in store or from Aliorumnas
Holy veil=10 Int found in Nation of fools. 4 rooms to the right of the top
warp.
Succubus Boots=4 Int dropped by Succubus.
Skull Ring=6 Int dropped by Lesser Demon or Paludamentum=5 int from store.
INT Boost=30 Int.
This will give you at most a 66 Int boost. It is impossible to do this
quest on level cap 1 and 25 from fresh start before defeating the Final
Boss.

After finishing this quest Mental Training 4 becomes available. Equip
Johnathon with Stonewall and hold R to have him use it. Then talk to Wind
as Charlotte. Build Your Strength 3 should appear but you should have all
5 cakes if you've been following my walkthrough if not I'll list them for
you.

Green Tea Cake. To get this break the floor just right of the first Save
Point in the City of Haze. God down and then left for it.

Sachertorte, NY Cheesecake, Mille-feville, Wheat Roll. These four are in
the Bakery which is behind a breakable wall. This wall is the right wall
of the room just to the right of where you got your Green Tea Cake. Hit
the register and then hit the chandelier. Depending on the value of the
coin dropped you'll get a different pastry once per game per coin type.
There are other places with cakes but this is the simplest list you can
get. Basically anything that you'd find in a bakery works for this quest.

Just note that if you have one of the items in your posession they won't
show up in the display case for you to get. But will reappear in the
instance that you have none of it. So you are guaranteed to be able to get
these four cakes for the quest.

After you take down that quest Build your Strength 4 shows up. Have
Johnathon use Stonewall again while Charlotte talks to Wind. Make sure
to accept the other quests. Now return to the Dark Academy. Go to the room
just right of the 2nd Warp Room. Wait near the start of the room. I wait
at the Podium. After a little bit a ghost should appear and the quest is
done. Return to Wind. This should leave three quests left. Find the King
of Birds, Defeat the Ghoul King and The Gambler. Return to the 5 portrait
room. This time go to the Forgotten City. Which is the far left portrait.

Boss Battle:Mummy Man------------------------------------------------(MUMM)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mummy Man
Hp: 4500 Exp: 5000 Sp: 60
Weak: Piercing, Fire, Holy
Strong: Dark

Attacks
Block Spikes: Three blocks appear and push you against the right wall.
They will then extend spikes towards the wall. You can dodge this by
jumping over it.

Wrappings: Mummy Man extends his arms and his bandages go out towards
you slowly and homes in on your location. You can dodge this by jumping
over him after he starts his attack. Clear Skies can stop this attack.

Teleport: Mummy Man unwraps and then wraps himself back together in a
different spot. Nothing damaging about this move so no worries.

Homing Blocks: Several blocks move out and then position themselves around
you. One block will turn red and then fly towards you. Then another until
they all have had a go at you. To avoid this move just dodge them as they
come at you one by one, which usually means jumping over them. He does
this move mainly when your right next to him. He uses up blocks for the
background to this move. When they start getting low new blocks slide
down. Clear Skies can stop this attack.

Strategies
Johnathon:
Shuriken and Holy water make great choices here as they both can hit four
times.
Back dash caneling Darts also is a good option since you'll get a
bulls-eye from being at ground level.
As for weapons Kaiser Knuckles, Heavens Swor, Flame Whip, Unlocked Vampire
Killer or even your best Axe are great choices for this Boss.

Charlotte:
Time Stop and then place 3 Bwaka Knives right on the Boss. This will deal
insane damage to him.
Salamander does a great deal of damage to this Boss. If you could buy it.
Tempest and Summon Gunman can deal a decent amount of damage here but
nowhere near Salamander. There are several attack spells that do decent
damage but these are all I felt were worth mentioning.

Dual Crushes:
1000 Blades does insane damage here easily over 2000 depending on your
level. Other than that I wouldn't recommend any Dual Crushes.

way. The cool way is to start pushing the Train and then pull out your
partner and both of your push. You have to summon your partner to push
almost instantly. You'll cause the train to slow down and then halt to a
complete stop where it will vanish. The other way is to use the Critical
Art of an Axe type Weapon or even Alucards Spear to make you jump through
the roof and let the Train pass by.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle:Werewolf-------------------------------------------------(WOLF)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Werewolf
Hp: 4500 Exp: 6000 Sp: 60
Weak: Whip, Piercing, Fire, Holy
Strong: Blunt

Attacks
Rushing Slash: Rushes towards you and then slashes with his claws. Run
away or jump over him to dodge. Jumping over causes him to do the Uppercut
instead.

Rising Uppercut: If your in the air as he's rushing towards you he will do
a rising slash. You can dodge this by either moving a bit away from him
as he starts the uppercut or going behind him.

Lampost Javelin: Werewolf grabs a Lamp post and throws it at you. The
throw is at a set distance and starts fairly high. So stepping a bit
close to the Werewolf is the best way to dodge.

Head Bite: If your really close to the Werewolf he will pull his arm back
and then grab you followed by biting your head. You can dodge this by
moving away when he pulls his arm back.

Pack Call: Werwolf starts howling. Soon you'll see wolves jump on screen.
They will charge mindlessly in the direction your in. You can avoid them
by jumping over them or by attacking them once to make them go away.

Strategies
Johnathon:
Holy Water, Shuriken, Kunai, and Bible are all great choices due to
Werewolf's size and shape. Each will easily hit quite a few times.
Darts when backdash canceled are a great choice here as well since you can
bulls-eye while standing.
As for weapons The Flame/Vampire Kill Whips and Heavens Sword are good.
Other than that your strongest weapon should do a good number too.

Charlotte:
Time Stop with 3 Bwaka Knives placed on the Boss does insane damage.
Salamander does great damage here. Due to the casting time you might want
to have Johnathon occupy the Boss for a bit.
Hex, Summon Gunman, Raging Fire, Ice Fang, Tempest, and Explosion are all
good spells to use here.

Dual Crush
1000 Blades does an insane amount of damage. None of the other dual
crushes are worth doing since simple spells can top their damage easily.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle Complete------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle:Medusa---------------------------------------------------(MEDU)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Medusa
Hp: 3500 Exp: 6000 Sp: 60
Weak: Holy
Strong: Dark

Attacks
Stone Stare: Medusa goes to the back of the room and yells petrify. This
will turn you to stone and if your already stoned it will hurt you. You
can avoid this by turning away from her when she yells petrify. Mirror
Cuirass which is dropped by Gorgon makes you immune to this move.

Serpent Strike: Medusa's upper body turns into a Snake head that will
lunge at you. You can avoid this attack by jumping up when she starts to
pull back. This will make her attack upwards.

Snake Arm Bite: Medusa's positions an arm above her and below her. Then
she lunges forward as her arm turns into a snake. You can dodge this by
running away from her and jumping as she gets close.

Medusa Spawn: Medusa covers her eyes and several Medusa Heads fly out
forward covering a big portion of the screen. You can destroy the heads.
Big spells like Tempest, Chain Lightning or any spell that functions
similar will work great here.

Tail Crawl: The screen will shake briefly and then Medusa's tail will
snake in and out of the ground fairly fast. You can avoid this move by
standing around where her tail went into the ground.

Strategies
Johnathon:
Wrecking Ball is the best Sub Weapon here. As it constantly hits over your
head at a decent speed.
Axe and Bible are a good choice as Medusa is above you constantly.
Cross is another good choice as you can get it to hit a decent number
of times. Shuriken is for once an option that I don't recommend as
consistently hitting with more than one shuriken is probably going to get
you hit.
As for weapons I recommend your strongest Whip as it is easily the best
weapon for handling Medusa Heads and can deal decent damage to Medusa.

Charlotte:
Timestop and placing 3 Bwaka Knives on the Boss deals insane damage.
Salamander does a great deal of damage to the Boss. If you bought it.
Summon Skeleton, Ice Needle and Tempest are good spells to use here.

Dual Crush:
I don't recommend you use any of the Dual Crushes.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle Complete------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you win exit left. Here you'll fight respawning Medusa Heads. Exit
left. Grab the Jet Black Whip. Exit right. Exit bottom right. You should

My Map Percentage was 100% for Burnt Paradise.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Castle after Paradise------------------------------------------------(CASE)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Enemies:Brauner(B), Dracula&Death(B), True Dracula(B)

Items: Hp Max Up, Foie Gras, Mp Max Up, 2000 Gold Bag, Robe Decollete,
Speed Up(S)

The Nest of Evil quest should be completed, which gives you more quests.
The Hundred Tasks, Master the Holy power and Almighty should also be
completed. Unless you haven't obtained all the Sub Weapons or mastered the
select few that are needed to be mastered. Refer to the various parts of
this walkthrough for the Sub Weapons as for mastery go to the Two Minotaur
room in the Dark Academy. We'll go to the Nest of evil later. Return to
the Five Portrait Room and enter the Center Portrait this time. There will
be some dialogue and then the Boss Battle will start.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle:Brauner--------------------------------------------------(BRAU)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Brauner
Hp: 6000 Exp: 0 Sp: 0
Weak: Holy
Strong: Dark

Attacks
Blood Art Technique: Brauner throws a bit of blood to the side then draws
two lines behind him. Those lines will show you how the blood will appear
when it smears on the game screen. This blood will hurt you if you touch
it. Hitting it will make the blood vanish for whever you hit. Whip is
probably the best weapon type for clearing the blood. Various sub weapons
work great as well for clearing the blood. Like Bwaka Knife and Discus.

This is Art: Brauner will cross his arms and a painting will fall down to
him. He will fuse with this painting and start to fly around. After awhile
he will spin faster and then fly at you. You can avoid this by jumping
over him.

Painting of the Soul: Brauner will say painting of the soul and then wave
his arm in the air showing blood everywhere. You can avoid this by moving
away from Brauner to be out of ranged of this attack. After this attack he
throws one of three painting atttacks which are as follows.

Stone Painting: Brauner summons a single painting. Out of which will fly
several black heads. These heads will petrify you on contact. You can hit
these heads away.

Double Painting: Brauner throws two paintings forward which will change
into a big monster that goes along the ground and one on the ceiling.
These creatures can poison and curse you. You can dodge these usually by
jumping over one and allowing the other to go overhead. Rocket Slash
is a nice way to get past them too if jumping doesn't seem like an option
to you.

Spinning Painting: Brauner throws a painting that two green creatures with
several legs pointing out all around them appear. They will move in
opposite directions. You can avoid them by timing your movements between
the spinning legs. You can also use Rocket Slash to go right through the
legs without suffereing damage. This attack can poison you.

Strategies
Johnathon:
Cross and Bible can rack up a decent amount of damage with their multiple
hits.
Wrecking Ball is a good choice here as it deals decent damage and hits
quite fast.
As for weapons. I'd recommend your strongest weapons that are imbued with
holy. Or a Whip type for handling his techniques.
Unlocked Vampire Killer and it's critical art are especially good.

Charlotte:
Time Stop and then placing the 3 Bwaka Knives on the Boss once again deals
insane damage.
Piercing Beam, Spirit of Light, Ice Fang and Summon Gunman are great
choices here.

Dual Crush:
1000 Blades and Grand Cruz are great choices here dealing a noticable
amount of damage above the other dual crushes.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle Complete------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you win there will be some dialogue. You will also be transported to
the throne room stair case. You can return to Wind for some dialogue if
you want. Immediately drop down below the platform your on. Work your way

break the wall to get the Foie Gras. Go left to get the Mp Max Up and the
2000 Gold Bag. Exit left. Break the ceiling in the center of the room. Exit
up. Head left to grab the Robe Decollete and the Speed Up Spell. Exit
down. Enter the Boss Room to the left. There will be some dialogue before
the fight starts.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle:Dracula and Death-------------------------------------(DRAC)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Dracula
Hp: 6666 Exp: 0 Sp: 0
Weak: Holy
Strong: Dark
Note: Only his head is vulnerable to damage.

Attacks
Fire Balls: Dracula opens his cloak and fires three volleys of Fire Balls
at you. In 3 then 5 and then 3 amounts. You can jump over them or you can
destroy them with an attack. If you have Speed Up on you can simply walk
through them. You can avoid them entirely by jumping over him.

Dark Balls: Dracula will open his cloak and then shoot some Dark Balls.
They alternate between low and hi. So you can avoid these by alternating
between jumping and ducking. You can avoid them entirely by jumping over
him.

Teleport: Dracula is surround in light and then teleports away only to
reappear in either the center of the room, the far left or far right. This
attack does no damage.

Bat Form: Dracula Teleports to the center of the room and yells Bat Form
as he starts to change into several bats. These bats will then fly forward
in the direction you were in. This attack will decimate you! You can dodge
this easiest by Switching to Johnathon and continually high jumping. You
can also dodge this by doing a Dual Crush and using it's invulnerability
time.

Death
Hp:4444 Exp: 0 Sp: 0
Weak: N/A
Strong Dark

Attacks
Side Strike: This attack will only occur if your flying right next to him.
In which case dropping down is the best way to dodge it.

Hell Scythe: Whenever Death Hovers above you he will raise his Scythe over
his head. Then he will strike down and off the screen with a Red Aura. You
can dodge this by moving out from under him.

Joint Strike: Death will hover over Dracula and spread his arms. You'll
notice a light snake across the screen. This will turn into Scythes that
Dracula will suck up and spit out as a hoard of Dark Balls.

Scythe Transform: Death Transforms into a Scythe and flies into Dracula's
hand. Dracula then slams the scythe into the ground in front of him
causing a HUGE eruption that does massive damage. You can avoid this by
continually high jumping in a corner or running to the other side of the
room. Speed Up helps with the running.

Strategies
Johnathon:
Cross can hit three times for decent damage.
Bible is another good choice as it's circling attack can hit both of them.
Sadly I cannot really recommend any other Sub Weapons.
As for weapons I'd recommend your strongest weapon with Holy alignment.
Stellar Swords special can hit both of them so is a nice choice.

Charlotte:
Time Stop and placing 3 Bwaka Knives on the Boss once again can deal
insane damage. This will most likely really cut through your mp. As
your partner will suffer several hits.
Spirit of Light will hit both of them if they are both on the same screen
doing impressive damage total.
Chaing Lightning and Explosion can hit multiple times if they are both on
the same screen.
Gale Force, Thunderbolt and Ice Fang can deal some damage if you want to
use them.

Dual Crush:
Grand Cruz racks up an impressive amount of damage and it's wide range
can allow you to easily hit both of them. This is the best way to take
them down. Use Spirit of Light during the cool down time.

After you manage to win you'll instantly be faced with the second part of
the fight.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle:True Dracula------------------------------------------(TRUE)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
True Dracula
Hp: 6666 Exp: 0 Sp: 0
Weak: Holy
Strong: Dark

Attacks
Knee Strike: Dracula covers his face and wraps his wings about him. Then
he lunges forward with his knee extended. You can dodge this by high
jumping so that he can go under you. You can also slide under him.
Note: If he is high in the air he will rush at the ground quickly as he
covers his face.

Ground Strike: When Dracula is high in the air he will rise slightly and
then immediately thrust his fist into the ground. When dracula is low he
will rush up quite fast before thrusting his fist into the ground. If your
a decent distance away he will fly towards you at moderate speed before
thrusting his hand into the ground. You can dodge this by moving away from
him.

Fire Fall: Several pillars of fire appear at a fixed space apart and then
they fall.This will last for 5 volleys until Dracula touches the ground.
You can avoid this by walking between the pillars as they fall. You can
also jump over the pillars to move away. Make sure to keep making progress
away from Dracula as he will slowly float down towards you.

Death's Scythe: Dracula raises his arm up and creates a dark portal. He
then pulls out Death's Scythe and throws it at you. He throws three. Each
throw is higher oriented than the last. Jump over the first and second.
Then duck under the third.

Wing Crush: Dracula flies into the background and his wings cover both
sides of the screen slowly inching closer. Eventually they will come
crushing together causing massive damage. Then the wings will start
grinding for about 10 hits. You can stop this by continually dealing
damage to both wings. You can just attack one side whil Charlotte attacks
the other. Or you can use skills like Wrecking Ball and Dark Rift. If you
keep hitting his wings back he will eventually pull them back. If you fail
entirely at doing that most likely because your on level 1 cap. Then use
a lengthy dual crush like Grand Cruz for invulnerability time.

Strategies
Johnathon:
Cross can hit up to four times unless he flies across the screen real
fast. In which case you might even see another.
Bible is fairly good and can hit a few times as well.
As for weapons your strongest weapons with Holy Alignment will work good.

Charlotte:
Spirit of Light, Tempest, and Ice Fang are the only spells I'd really
recommend for this fight.

Dual Crush:
Grand Cruz is once again the dual crush you should use. As it still racks
up quite a bit of damage and the other dual crushes are worthless in this
fight.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle Complete------------------------------------------------------

Axe can get in a three hits for decent damage easily.
Ricochet stone when set off next to his face can hit four times for decent
damage.
As for weapons any strong weapon will work well here.

Charlotte:
Time Stop and placing 3 Bwaka Knives on the Boss is the best way to kill
him.
Salamander can deal quite a bit of damage over time. Casting the spell
before getting hit can be a problem though.
Tempest, Summon Skeleton and Ice Fang do an incredible amount of damage
here and are extremely easy to hit him with.
Acidic Bubbles, Ice Needle and Hex can deal a great deal as well. Hex and
Acidic Bubbles will require you to stand on the hand as your casting to
hit with all or in Hex's case any of the attack.

Dual Crush:
I don't recommend using any of them.

straight up and spew gas from his belly. You can dodge this by
flying into the corner. Depending on the color a different type of status
will occur. Gray is Stone. Purple is Curse. Green is Posion.

Strategies
Johnathon:
Bible when thrown from under Gergoth will hit for quite a few times.
Axe, Holy Water, Cross, Bwaka Knives and Shuriken can also rack up quite a
bit of damage fast.

Charlotte:
Salamander does insane damage here.
Time Stop and placing 3 Bwaka Knives on the Boss works quite well.
Ice Fang, Tempest, Ice Needle, and Hex does great damage here.

After you win exit right twice. The room to the right is a Warp Room.
Return to Wind at this point. Accept the Kill Gergoth quest. Go buy a
Blank Book from Vincent as well. Now go back to Gergoth and this time
when you kill him. Do it with the physical attack of the Blank Book. Only
the final blow has to be with the Blank Book. You can use spells or even
Johnathon up until that point. Just keep the amount of damage you've done
in mind. Return to Wind and get the Cocytus Spell. Return to the Nest of
Evil and go to the bottom Warp Room. Exit left. Exit bottom left.

the value of the Gold that can be dropped. You can only have 4 types of
gold that can be dropped at any time. The values are 1, 10, 50, 100, 500,
1000. So with one Gold Ring you'll have access to 10, 50, 100, 500. With
two Gold Rings you'll have access to 50, 100, 500, 1000 Having two of them
equipped and using Speed Up to continually go down and up the throne
stairs is the best legit way to gain gold. Exit right. Here you'll fight
five DoubleAxe Armor's. Exit right. Here you'll fight Zephyr.

Boss Battle:Zephyr---------------------------------------------------(ZEPH)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Zephyr
Hp: 3210 Exp: 3210 Sp: 60

freeze time. He will then jump over you placing several knives above you.

moving out of their direct descent down. You can stop the attack entirely
by jumping when he glows. If he decides to do another attack time will
resume like normally.

Side Swipe: Zephyr floats towards you with arms extended and slashes when
near you. You can dodge this by jumping over him or running away.

forward. You can dodge this by jumping over them. You can destroy these
knives by attacking them.

Dive: Zephyr jumps to the ceiling and then dives at a set angle and throws
a knife at you as he does so. You can dodge this by moving out of the way.

Strategies
Johnathon:
Shuriken is your best Sub Weapon here racking up great damage fast is
easy.
Holy Water can also deal a decent amount of damage.
As for weapons your strongest weapons should easily do the job.

Charlotte:
Salamander can do quite a number on this guy. You'll probably have to
use Johnathon to run distraction as you charge up your spell.
Ice Needle can do great damage and you can make it hit reliably.

Dual Crush:
1000 Blades does insane damage here if you get lucky and he decides to
walk slowly to you instead of rushing around.

then dive down where you are and cause a small fire wave trail to erupt
from both sides. You can dodge this by moving out of the way.

Smash: Aguni will raise his arm into the air and then slam it down. He
will do this three times in a row. He will also give chase after you. You
can dodge this by moving away from him enough so that his hand misses each
time.

Fire Wall: Aguni will spit a flame that moves across the floor to the
wall. It will move like Holy Water but only it will last a lot longer. He
will spit three at set intervals. You can avoid this attack by jumping
over it.

Sway: Aguni will fly left and right across the screen with no warning. He
will be low enough to deal touch damage. You can avoid this by ducking.

Strategies
Johnathon:
Cross, Axe, Bible and Wrecking Ball are all I'd recommend using.
As for weapons I recommend Rahab's Frost or a strong weapon.

Charlotte:
Ice Fang, Ice Needle and Cocytus do insane damage here. Really that's
all you should use here.

Dual Crushes:
Grand Cruz can do a decent amount of damage nothing compared to Charlotte
though.

Boss Battle Complete------------------------------------------------------

Boss Battle:Abaddon--------------------------------------------------(ABAD)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Abaddon
Hp: 5000 Exp: 4000 Sp: 50
Weak: Piercing, Holy
Strong: Dark

Attacks
Locust Conductor: Abaddon will wave his conductors baton which will leave
a red streak. This is how the Locusts will act when they appear. You can
destroy these Locusts by attacking them. Whip is the only weapon that can
do this. Charlottes spell Stone Circle shines here as it makes you immune
to everything but touching him. Dark Rift and Clear Skies work well too.
And yes that is his only attack.

Strategies
Johnathon:
Wrecking Ball, Cross and Shuriken are all great ways to rack up the
damage against this guy. Just make sure Charlotte is protecting you with
one of the anti-locust spells.

Charlotte:
Tempest: Offers nice protection from Locusts and deals fairly good damage
to Abaddon.

Dual Crush:
1000 Blades can do quite a bit of damage so long as you do it right after
a Locust swarm has passed.
Grand Cruz is another nice option but can be done any time for great
damage.

Weak: Piercing
Strong: Whip, Holy
Note: Becomes much more agressive and skilled as he becomes more damaged.

Attacks
Strike: Simply put he pulls his arm back and then strikes with his whip.
You can dodge this by jump or by ducking. When he gets serious he can duck
and attack.

Bloody Cross: He will throw a cross of bones and blood forward. You can
dodge this by ducking or by jumping over it.

Dark Water: He tosses a bottle of Dark Water to the ground which acts just
like Holy Water but only it's dark. You can dodge this by jumping over it
or moving away.

1000 Blades: Trevor will get a huge glowing column of energy surrounding
him before he starts to throw blade after blade. You can dodge this by
jumping over him or flying up.

Fake Grant
Hp: 3800 Exp: 3000 Sp: 60
Weak: Piercing
Strong: N/A
Note: Spends most of his time on the ceiling and is relatively harmless.
Note: Hit him enough and he will fall down.

Attacks
Knife Throw: He throws a knife directly below him. You can dodge this by
not being under him. Yes he will do this attack even when you won't get
hit.

Knife Throw 2: Grant pulls out a knife and then drops to the ground. He
then throws it forward. He sometimes will throw a second knife. You can
dodge this by jumping over it.

Fake Sypha
Hp: 3200 Exp: 3000 Sp: 60
Weak: Piercing
Stong: Fire, Ice, Lightning
Note: Hitting her a couple times will cause her to be stunned this will
interupt her spells.
Note: As she gets more damaged she will change spells down the line.
Note: She will perform her spells wherever she is regardless of whether
or not she'll hit you with them.

Attacks
Stone Breath: She will put her hands together and a grey puff will appear.
Then she will spray grey smoke down from her. This will cause stone. You
can dodge this by making sure your nowhere below her.

Flame Breath: She will put her arms to her sides and then she will do a
little spurt of fire, before breathing flames out of her mouth straight
forward. You can avoid this by not jumping up into it.

Balls of Light: She will put her arms to her side and then a purple puff
will appear before she launches three purple balls at you. You can dodge
this move by going behind her or by jumping forward between them.

Ressurection: She will make a small red aura of energy appear and revive
an incompetent version of Trevor if you killed him. You can destroy
him in a few hits or stop her from casting it by attacking her a few
times to stun her.

Strategies
Johnathon:
Wrecking Ball can really do a number to Sypha.
Axe is good for getting Grant off the ceiling and dealing damage.
Boomerang with a short hop you can hit all three of them at once.
Shuriken can deal great damage to one of them at a time.
As for weapons use whatever you want this battles easy.

Charlotte:
Tempest can deal lots of damage and can even hit all three at once!
Rock Riot is a good choice for dealing damage to any of them.
Gale Force is pretty much guaranteed to hit two of them for decent damage
so is a worthwhile choice.
Explosion and Chain Lightning can do a number as the hits recoil between
them.

Dual Crushes:
Dark Gate and Grand Cruz can get some good damage on everyone.
1000 Blades can deal insane damage to Trevor.

Page quest done. Tome of Arms X is your reward. It might have a bit of an
attack drop from Tome of Arms 3 but you'll notice it has Holy Element.
Which means it gets added damage to quite a bit of enemies in the game.
This should be the last quest. You should have no more quest left. Now for
your real reward. Exit left. Grab the Magus Ring from the center of the

Sub Weapon/Spell: Will use whichever you had equipped at the battles
start.

For this poorly coded Boss I think anyone and everyone can take him down
without needing my input. Have fun. Remember you decide how dangerous he
