NieR: Automata A Guide To All 26 Endings (No Spoilers)

As advertised, Nier: Automata has a lot of endings. 26 in-fact. Each of the endings correspond to the letter of the alphabet, with a clever name associated with that letter.

Every ending is achieved through various decisions you make throughout the game, in addition to unique actions that sometimes require you to be within a third playthrough. With this, there is plenty of replay value that encourages that you start a new game with new objectives, and perhaps a higher difficulty.

Below are how you get all the different endings.

Ending A: flowers for m[A]chines

Complete the game for your first time.

Ending B: or not to [B]e

Continue from your save file after achieving Ending A.

Ending C: meaningless [C]ode

During your third playthrough (route C), choose "A2" during the final boss. Then, say "No" to POD's request during the credits.

Ending D: chil[D]hood's end

During your third playthrough, choose "9S" while engaged in the final battle before selecting "I'll go with you".

Ending E: the [E]nd of YoRHa

Continuing from endings C and D during a third playthrough, wait for the credits and accept the POD's request with a 'Yes'. An epilogue must then be completed.
