 To navigate much easier through this guide, I added the search system, which
works just by following these simple steps:

- Highlight the "Section Code" of the section which you wish to go and copy it
  (CTRL+C).

- Press CTRL+F to bring up the search sub-menu.

- Paste the "Section Code" and press ENTER twice to be where you wanted to be.
  Just like magic!

 My Section Codes were made as precise as possible, and I also prefer this
method instead of having you scroll 30 min through this guide looking for the
section you want to go.

 Welcome once again to  another FAQ  made  by me, vinheim. This game is totally
different from  the games  I  usually  play (I always  play  RPG's  and Action-
Adventure games, and some spying  games like Splinter Cell). This  game  rocks,
it's different of all the games Capcom has been making, and you'll surely fall
in  love  with  the  main  character. Anyway, I  hope you enjoy this game  and
guide  as  much  as  I did. So with  this  little  said, let   us   begin. Any
critics,  suggestions,  spelling   mistakes,  contributions  are  welcome,  so
please  send  them at the following e-mail:

                           --> vinheim@gmail.com <--

 The following is the only site that may host this guide:


 - www.gamefaqs.com


 If you see this guide  posted  on any other site, please, PLEASE, let me know.

Now allow me to take note on some things:

- My walkthrough is pretty dry to me. I'm writing this  for  free  and  because
  I   enjoyed  this game, but than "enjoyed", I love it. If you are looking for
  tons  of  eloquent  ways for me to say "enter here and kill the enemies", you
  are  going  to  be  so disappointed.  This guide is way, way too big to begin
  with, and lofty language does not help.

- If you take a quick scan  thru my guide, you  won't find the explanations for
  battling system, saving-loading, etc. Why, you  ask? Well,  because the  game
  manual and in-game tutorials do a  perfect  job  explaining  the  everything.

- The spoilers  are  great  issues in making guides. I am a player of the game,
  just like you are. The first time   I played through this game was completely
  by myself. I didn't use any guides, therefore nothing was spoiled for me. All
  the story's ups and downs that were  supposed to surprise me had such effect.
  And I really think it's not fair spoiling such story elements to you.

 With all this said, let's start with the guide! Enjoy  this guide and remember
that it is a spoiler-free, so you don't  have to worry about  important info of
the game being spoiled.

 Here, I'll give you the basics of this game, which are the controls and some
of the story (from the Instruction Booklet), and I think that's pretty much it.

                                            - Devil May Cry Instruction Booklet


 According to legend, 2000 years ago while snow was falling on a clear,
freezing night on Earth, a fierce devil prince was born deep in the
darkest pit of the netherworld.

 He grew rapidly. Within a short time he gained his full powers and took
into the Devil Throne. His first act as a ruler of all devils was to
declare himself emperor of the Devil Kingdom. His next feat was an
invasion of the human world. His plan was to conquer it and rule over
both the lower and upper realms.

 But a powerful devil-knight known as Sparda took pity on humans for
their brief, transient lives. In fierce battles he defeated all the
Devil ruler's armies and finally imprisoned him in a sealed vault.

 Having achieved his victory, Sparda abandoned the Devil Kingdom to live
in the human world. He married a human woman and soon fathered a half
devil, half man son.

 But beware, mankind. After 2000 years, the cursed Devil Emperor will be
released and will return to invade the human world once again.

 Sparda's son must be our protector!

 The characters, mainly the main character, are some of the best characters in
all games. Here is some info of them.

 ____,
(-|  \
 _|__/ante
(

 Dante is a freelance underground mercenary in modern America. But his
secret persona is even more extraordinary! He slays bloodthirsty devils
from the depths of burning hell with his huge sword and dual-wielded
handguns. Even a devil may cry begging for Dante's mercy.

 ____,
(-|
 _|rish
(

 Trish is a hauntingly beautiful woman who invites Dante to Mallet
Island, gateway to the devil world. She possesses supernatural powers
and vast knowledge about devils. It is said she knows Dante's secret
history. But what is her true identity and purpose?

 __, _,
(-|\/|
 _| _|undus
(

Later… lol

 _,  _,
(-|\ |
 _| \|elo Angelo
(

 Since many of the greater devils appearing in literature were greater angels,
it is not surprising that this black knight is called Nelo Angelo, the "black
angel". It is said that he fights his enemy fairly and squarely, a rarity in a

 Before getting started with the guide, let me address something: At the Item
Checklist, I wrote: Obtainable Weapon, Blue Orb Fragment, Red Orb Pedestal,
Secret Mission and Divinity Statue; where I'll write down the following:

- Obtainable Weapons: I'll name here the weapon(s) you'll receive during the
                      mission, if there's any, of course.
- Blue Orb Fragments: I'll only list the total number of Blue Orb Fragments
                      you'll obtain during the mission.
- Secret Missions: As always, if there's one or more secret missions during the
                   mission, I'll write down the number of them.
- Divinity Statues: Number of Divinity Statues in the mission areas.

 Well, please open the CD Tray, insert your Devil May Cry DVD in your Sony
PlayStation 2 and close the CD Tray. You'll be enjoying during a lot of hours
this game, just because you want to get better and better each second. You'll
have three options at the start screen, which are New Game, Load and Options.
Choose New Game and set the difficulty of the game. If you're first-timers, I
really suggest playing in Normal, because I used the "Normal" difficulty as the
default for making the guide.

| Yellow Orb................ 1 |  father, Sparda, in the background, while some
| Secret Missions..........[¯] |  of the story is narrated. Also watch the

o------------------------------o  in the photograph?).

 When you gain control for the first time, follow the path, get the 'Yellow
Orb' when you come to it and follow the stone path a bit until you get to an
arch with a little chapel-like roof at the left side of the screen. Try jumping
of the wall of the arch to land on the arch itself and go under the chapel-like
roof to find a 'Blue Orb'.

 Return to the bottom and keep following the path until you enter some sort of
castle.

o- Item Checklist: ------------o----------------------------------------------o
|                           _  |
| Obtainable Weapons.......[_] |   Once you start, you'll see that you'll be
| Blue Orb Fragments....... _4 |  trapped inside, so hope you got the Blue
| Yellow Orb...............[_] |  Orb Fragment, as well as the Yellow Orb.
| Secret Missions..........[_] |  So, from where you start, go left and you'll
| Divinity Statues.........  1 |  see some debris left by the broken stairs.
|                              |  Use the wall to jump kick to a second floor
o------------------------------o  and get 'Blue Orb Fragment'. Might be a
                                  little late, but let me tell you about this
room. There are three floors in this main hall, and two doors; one is sealed
with a "red seal" (these need Red Orbs in order to open up), and the other is
locked. So start checking the whole main hall and getting all the Red Orbs.
There are 45 Red Orbs in total, but there are 100 secret Red Orbs. See the
horse and knight statue in middle of the room? Go on top the horse's head and
jump on top the Halberd. It may look impossible, but it is possible.

 Pay 45 Red Orbs to the Sealed Door to go to the next room. In here, break the
armors at the left side of the room to get 'Blue Orb Fragment', now enter the
door. Break all the objects here to find some Red Orbs. Now go in the door and
follow the staircase to the next floor, then enter the next door. In here, jump
in the left pool to find yet another 'Blue Orb Fragment', which should be your
fourth, incrementing your Vitality by 10%.

 Return to the previous room and jump to the third floor through the hole in
the roof you're shown in the little scene. On top, check the red puppet and get
'Rusty Key' from it's hand. When you try walking away, the puppet awakes,
revealing a Bloody Mary and another Marionette. This is your very first fight,
so try any moves you want. When you go to the previous floor, the Marionette
awakes to and attacks you.

 Go to the Main Hall and use the Rusty Key you just got to open the left door.
In here, you'll see several Marionettes sleeping, but won't awake just yet.
Instead, go to the top of the airplane and get another 'Blue Orb Fragment'.
Also, stay put on top of the propeller to have some Red Orbs come down. Now go
to the far corner of the room to find two armors hiding a clock-like with
glyphs. Hit it until it fills the little glyphs. Once you descend, kill the
Marionettes that appear and when the wooden gates open for a second wave, check
for the Marionette that has a Shotgun (it's not 100% sure to appear every time,
but just try looking for it, because he's the most dangerous Marionette). He
can take a good chunk of damage off of you, so take it out quick.

 Return to the Airplane Room and kill all the Marionettes that you saw
"sleeping" before. Once you're done, enter the red double doors shown in the
scene and finish the first Mission.

o- Item Checklist: ------------o----------------------------------------------o
|                              |
| Obtainable Weapons...Alastor |   From where you start, go up and enter the
|                      Shotgun |  door next to the painting. Break all the
| Blue Orb Fragments....... _1 |  objects to find some Red Orbs, but more
| Yellow Orb...............[_] |  importantly, a 'Blue Orb Fragment'. Also,
| Secret Missions..........[_] |  remember this room, because there's a Secret
| Divinity Statues.........  1 |  Mission up ahead. Exit this room and follow
|                              |  the hall and some Marionettes will appear to
o------------------------------o  have some fun with you. Afterwards, examine
                                  the sword stuck in the wall to trigger a
really kick ass scene. You'll receive Alastor, a sword with lightning
elemental. Finally say bye-bye to Force Edge, forever. Anyway, enter the door
that's before where Alastor was.

 In this library-type room, break the objects on the second floor to find the
'Shotgun'. Now examine the painting the with a blue shine to get a 'Rusty Key'.
Remember the double doors that were to your left when you were fighting the
Marionettes? It's in middle of the hall. Go there and open the door to reach a
fountain yard.

 You'll be greeted by a lot of Marionettes, so have fun with them. Also, the
Alastor and Shotgun make a deadly combination against the Marionettes, so
they'll be easier than before, if that's possible. Also, step on top of the
fountain to get some Red Orbs. Now enter the door at the right hand on the
second floor. A seal will appear over the door; these White Sealed Doors mean
that you need to kill all enemies in order to lift up the seal. When you're
over with them, hit some kind of golden coffin to reveal a secret path.

 Grab the 'Staff of Judgement' and a path will open. Try leaving the room and a
new enemy appears to attack you, the Sin Scissors (one of my best friends, Ed,
says that these are his girlfriends... why?... I don't know... he has some
bizarre tastes in women... lol). I think there are three of them, so to make
this quick, just shoot them with the Shotgun. Beware that if your near them
when they die, you might get hit by the scissors they have.

 Anyway, equip the Handguns and exit the room. You'll see several mini spiders
running around, use the Handguns to kill them, because each one gives a
whooping 1 Red Orb (wow... o_o). Now use the Staff of Judgement on the statue
where Alastor was to end the Mission.

 Before starting the next mission, make sure to buy Alastor's Stinger-level 1
skill, because it'll prove to be SO useful in the next mission.

             "Overcome the trial and acquire the "Pride of Lion"."

o- Item Checklist: ------------o----------------------------------------------o
|                           _  |
| Obtainable Weapons.......[_] |   Hope you bought Stinger-level 1. When you
| Blue Orb Fragments....... _2 |  start, go to the lowest side of the room
| Yellow Orb...............[_] |  (right in front of the large double doors)
| Secret Missions.......... _1 |  and examine the Pride of Lion, surrounded by
| Divinity Statues.........[_] |  a pillar of light. It'll break the curse that
|                              |  was set on the door, so take them to reach a
o------------------------------o  bridge. Before anything, jump on top of the
                                  arch above the door you just used to get some
Red Orbs. Afterwards, go to the end of the bridge, get the Red orbs and examine
the object in the middle.

 Once it says something about sending you to the Abyss, return just to be
stroked by lightning. Once underwater (I think we are underwater), move to the
open area, but quickly, because Dante's health is decreasing. Step on the black
mirror-like thing to have a new enemy appear, the Sargasso. There are six of
them, so take them all out with the Shotgun. Afterwards, get the Green Orb left
by the last Sargasso and exit this water cage through the light pillar.

 Once out and safe, return to the top of the arch above the doors (where you
got the secret Red Orbs from before) and Stinger towards the nothingness to
reach a floating piece of bridge and have a 'Blue Orb Fragment' drop out of
nowhere. Now jump from platform to platform back to where you examined the
mirror-thing in the middle. There's another 'Blue Orb Fragment' over here, so
that's another complete Blue Orb.

 If you can't do it, just jump into the ocean, kill the Sargasso and leave the
cage to appear at the other side of the bridge. Now enter the Cathedral and
examine the 'Pride of Lion' to obtain it. Also a scene triggers in where a
spider named Phantom appears to have some fun with you.

-----------------------
Boss #1 - Phantom (1st)
-----------------------

 Ok, Phantom is easy, if you know how to deal with it. People say it's too
difficult, but I say the complete opposite. Just stay close to him and always
having R1 pressed. Shoot him with your Shotgun at all time and whenever you see
that he's going to attack you, jump backwards to evade the attack. Whenever you
see him jump backwards, he's about to use a fireball attack. To counter this
(this is why I told you to stay close to it and to buy Stinger), once he's
preparing the fireball, Stinger him in the mouth to make him swallow the
fireball and receiving more extra damage. Also he has an attack where he hides
his head underground. Start running without stopping and all the fire pillars
will miss.

 Also remember to use the Devil Trigger, because he's faster and more dangerous
this way.

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

 After the scene, return to the bridge and drop down into the water to trigger
the very first Secret Mission.

.:*' Secret Mission 1 - Critical Hit '*:.
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
             -- "Aim for its weak point and defeat it with one single shot." --


 This Secret Mission is kinda hard. You have to kill the Sin Scissor in one
attack. Wait until he's in front of you. When he's about to attack you, hit him
with Alastor to break his guard. When this happens, he'll down his scissors for
a bit. Approach him as near as you can and put a Shotgun bullet through his
mask. If you killed him in one shot, you did it.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

 Now return to where you defeated Phantom and go through the doors to return to
the hallway and end this mission. Please, if you can afford it, buy Alastor's
Air Raid. It'll come in handy in the next mission.

"Display one's strength to the Lion and open the path. Acquire the "Melancholy
                                    Soul"."

o- Item Checklist: ------------o----------------------------------------------o
|                           _  |
| Obtainable Weapons.......[_] |   Ok, as we start, just return to the
| Blue Orb Fragments.......[_] |  Cathedral where you fought Phantom to enter
| Yellow Orb...............[_] |  Secret Mission 2, but equip your Handguns
| Secret Missions..........  3 |  first.
| Divinity Statues.........  1 |
|                              |  .:*' Secret Mission 2 - Phantom Babies '*:.
o------------------------------o  ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
                       -- "Defeat 100 Phantom Babies within the time limit". --


 Ok, this Secret Mission is the easiest of all. You need to kill 100 mini
Phantoms in 30 sec. That's easy, just take out your Handguns and start shooting
at them like crazy. There are a bunch right where you enter (like 60), at the
left side of the door that leads to the bridge are more (like 30) and at the
other side of the room (where the Pride of Lion was) are more. Once you kill
them all, return to the entrance to receive your reward.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

 If you start running down the hallway, you'll have Phantom chasing you. If you
want to kill it, keep running until you get to the end of the hallway. If not,
get in the door that leads to the fountain that is almost next to you, then
return to the hallway and complete the third Secret Mission. If you decided to
kill Phantom, keep reading. If not, skip to where you see [~~~].

 As you run down the hallway, Phantom will start shooting fireballs at you.
Jump just a bit before he releases it. When you get to the end of the hallway,
use your Devil Trigger, jump and use Air Raid. You can kill it with just 4
Symbols, so do so. Once you've killed it, you'll receive 500 Red Orbs.

[~~~]

 Now go in the room that has the Divinity Statue to trigger another Secret
Mission.

.:*' Secret Mission 3 - Phantom Babies II '*:.
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
                            -- "Defeat 100 Phantom Babies within the time limit
                                                 without using any weapons". --


This Secret Mission is exactly the same as the previous one, only that you
can't use any weapons. What to do...? What to do...? Use your DT and start
running through the room until you kill them all. By the way, you have 20
seconds to do it.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

 Alright, another fragment of a Blue Orb. Finally, go in the door where the
fountain is and examine the purple wall of light and use the Pride of Lion.
Destroy the statue behind the barrier to have a new type of enemy appear... the
Shadow. Beware, after the small scene, evade the attack, or it'll hurt and a
lot. To kill this type of enemy, shoot it with your Handguns while evading it's
attacks until you see that an Orb appears above it. Once this happens, use the
DT and start attacking this "core" with sword attacks. Keep this until the
Shadow starts flashing red. At this point, it's going to kill itself, but it's
going to try and take you with it. Just evade it's attacks until it dies.

 Before anything, return to the Airplane room and go to the area where you
fought 2 waves of Marionettes in Mission 1, to trigger Secret Mission 4.

.:*' Secret Mission 4 - The Three Beasts '*:.
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
                            -- "Fight the Shadow. You only have one chance". --


 Ok, this is one of the hardest Secret Mission of the entire game. There're
really not much to say. Just try and keep focused on one Shadow at a time,
using the strategy I told you before. Once the first one is gone, it should be
a bit easier, since you only have two Shadows to worry about, instead of three.
Keep the same strategy with the other 2 and you eventually win. Please note,
however, that if you're killed in this Secret Mission, is game over, so use
your Vital Star (if you have any) if you need to.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

 After the battle, return to where you fought your first Shadow and enter the
door that was shown to you in the scene after killing the Shadow. In here, go
to the top, then jump on the platform right next to you and grab 'Death
Sentence'. You might have passed a double door. Return to it and open it.

 Once in here, jump on top of the bed to receive some Red Orbs. Now examine the
statue with a golden glow and use the Death Sentence to receive "Melancholy
Soul", then trigger a scene. Now go outside and jump down to trigger a fight
with Nelo Angelo.

---------------------------
Boss #2 - Nelo Angelo (1st)
---------------------------

 Nelo Angelo... what can I say about him? He has some attacks similar to
Dante's. Once he jumps off the building, run to him and attack him. If you're
attacking and he blocks, jump backwards or roll over. When charging an Energy
Ball, get away from him and try rolling out of the way. When you've dealt 1/3
of his HP, he'll teleport to a higher platform. Same deal here, except that the
space that you have to fight is reduced significantly. Once you've dealt 2/3 of
it's HP, he'll move to an even higher place. So follow him just to find out
that the space is smaller, but that's not it. The camera angle up here sucks,
so it's really hard to keep a good eye on him.

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

 Once you're done with him, a scene triggers and the Mission Ends.

o- Item Checklist: ------------o----------------------------------------------o
|                           _  |
| Obtainable Weapons.......[_] |   Of, maybe the shortest Mission of all DMC
| Blue Orb Fragments....... _1 |  games. You'll be attacked by a Shadow as soon
| Yellow Orb...............[_] |  as you start, so try to evade it. Then follow
| Secret Missions..........[_] |  path to where you fought Nelo for the third
| Divinity Statues.........  1 |  time (Remember? At the very top of the
|                              |  building?). Go there and before dropping down
o------------------------------o  the hole in the floor, try wall jumping on a
                                  tower-like at the upper right corner (you
might as well use Alastor's Air Raid to float in the air) to get a 'Blue Orb
Fragment'. Also, jump on another tower (where Nelo was standing in the scene
previous to the fight) at the upper left corner to find some Red Orbs and an
Untouchable (kick ass item, let me tell you).

 Now go down the hole, enter the room where Nelo appeared, exit through the
other door and in the main tower, jump to the bottom and insert the Melancholy
Soul in the door to end this mission. I did 1:43 and got 150 Red Orbs and got
an S-rank, so try to do it as well.

o- Item Checklist: ------------o----------------------------------------------o

| Obtainable Weapons.......[_] |   From where you start, move upwards and wall

|                              |  right. Go to the end of this room and find a
o------------------------------o  'Rusty Key', and also a new type of enemy
                                  appears, the Beelzebub. Just use your Shotgun
to kill all of them, then exit the room to find even more Beelzebubs. Kill them
if you want and proceed north and use the Rusty Key to open the double doors.

 Follow the path and if you need health, enter the opening you'll see to your
right. Otherwise, keep following the path until a little scene kicks in and
you'll have to fight another new enemy, the Death Scissors.

 This is the second hardest normal enemy in the game, IMO. A good strategy is
to use Air Raid all the way until he dies. Also, sword weapons are good against
it.

 Once it's over, go to the end of the path and get 'Guiding Light' to end this
mission.

|                           ¯  |  with him, use Air Raid to kill him in like 6
o------------------------------o  seconds. Nab the 500 Red Orbs and go to the
                                  first area of the sewers. Remember where the
room where you got the Rusty Key is? Go there to enter Secret Mission 5.

                              -- "Lure the Kyklops into their mutual death". --


 Another hard Secret Mission. What you have to do is have one Kyklope kill the
other one. How to do that? Well, for me, the easiest and quickest way to do it
is just to be in between them and when they attack by spitting rocks, quickly
jump to have the rocks hit the other Kyklope. Keep doing this until one dies.
Remember that your vitality is still depleting, so try and make it quick. Once
this happens, the Blue Orb Fragment appears near the entrance of the door. Nab
it and exit to finish the Secret Mission.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

 At this main sewer area, kill all the enemies that appear (Marionettes,
Beelzebubs or Sin Scythes) to have the white seal of the door disappear. Now,
in the tower, hit the clock then jump on the red platform to have it raise you
to the top.

 Enter the bedroom where Nelo appeared and examine the sun next to the mirror
to open a secret door. Use it to finish this mission.

|Obtainable Weapons..Grenadegun|   You won't enter Mission 8 right after

path until a scene kicks in and you'll have to fight Phantom one last time.

-----------------------
Boss #3 - Phantom (2nd)
-----------------------

 Phantom this time has the same attacks plus a few others. He has two forms:
his spider one, which you must know by now and a scorpion-like form. His weak
points are his abdomen and mouth, so try aiming there. Also, he has a new
fireball attack, in which he'll throw at you five raining fireballs, one behind
another. Just like with the lava pillars, just run to avoid them. Air Raid is
your best ally for this fight, because with 5 Rune Symbols, you can take almost
half oh Phantoms health. He really isn't that hard, so go for it with all
you've got.

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

 Watch the scene after the battle and when you regain control, instead of
dropping through the path behind the gate, use Stinger to get a 'Blue Orb
Fragment'. Also stand on the little pillar on the right side for some Red Orbs.
Now grab the 'Trident' and go down the hole in between the horses.

 Hit the shining lever to open a path. Go to it and before going down, grab the
'Grenadegun' and go down. You'll be in a very familiar room. Before exiting,
use the Trident on the artifact in between the pools to have a gate open in the
room below, but you have time so, run like the wind, using the DT.

 Once you've crossed, jump in the right pool to find a 'Blue Orb Fragment'. Now
exit through the door to end this mission.

| Yellow Orb............... _3 |  now. You'll have to wait several Missions
| Secret Missions..........[_] |  until the gate is able to be opened lowered
| Divinity Statues.........  2 |  again. When you get to a large area with
|                              |  pillars, jump on the second one on your left
o------------------------------o  side to find some Red Orbs. Now jump on top
                                  of the first and third ones from your right
side for more Red Orbs. Now examine behind the tombstone to find a 'Devil
Star'. Proceed and go down the circular stairs until you reach a door. Enter
it.

 At this large area, walk down the stairs to trigger a scene where you're
introduced to a new enemy, the Blade. A good weapon to use against these is the
Grenadegun, so fire at will. Now, from the entrance, follow the upper right
path to find a lone tombstone. Hit it several times to reveal a 'Blue Orb
Fragment'.

 Now locate the path that has blue lights that leads to an opened gate. Before
entering the gate, go left, up the structure there to find a 'Holy Bottle'. Now
go in the gate. At the top of the area, get a 'Devil Star' from the left side
and a 'Yellow Orb' from the right side. Now go to the center of this walkway
and hit the clock here to activate several moving platforms.

 Move through them with a lot of caution, because you'll get so pissed off when
you fall. Once you reach the top, examine the spark to trigger a kick ass scene
and receive the Devil's Arms 'Ifrit'. Return now to the previous area to
trigger a scene and then a Boss Fight.

-----------------------
Boss #4 - Griffon (1st)
-----------------------

Griffon... easiest boss of all the game. The best way to damage it is with
either the Handguns or the Grenadegun. Also Air Raid is a very good thing to
use against Griffon. When he gets knocked out, approach him and use DT to kick
the hell out of it, using Alastor of course. There's really not much to say
about Griffon, but time well his attacks so you can anticipate them, evade them
and then attack him.

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

 After the fight, follow the upper right path (has blue lights, just like the
previous path) and hit the right side of the door with Ifrit to open the door.
In this forest-like room, before anything, move towards you left (yours, not
Dante's) and try wall jumping to a platform above for some Red Orbs, but more
importantly, a 'Holy Water'.

 Return to the floor and follow the path, try opening the door to trigger a
rather spooky scene. A new enemy appears before you, the Fetish. It's pretty
similar to the Marionettes, but stronger. Also look for a broken tree in middle
of the area. Jump on it to find some hidden Red Orbs.

 Now enter the door and when you get to some stairs, jump over the ledge on
your left to find a stone that has Red Orbs. Hit it, hit it, hit it... until it
breaks. Also break the tombstone to find a 'Devil Star' behind it. The door
that you need to use to continue with the story has a red seal, so pay up 200
Red Orbs to go in and finish this mission. If you don't have enough, kill some
Fetishes until you have at least 200 Red Orbs.

                                  the orb wherever it goes. If it goes inside a
monster, kill it; if not, run towards the exit it takes you to. Same goes for
the next 2 areas. Also, the first area has Marionettes and Fetishes; the second
area, Sin Scythes; and the third one, Blades.

 Once you're out of the labyrinth, kill the Kyklops (I really recommend using
Air Raid) and go to the left side of the area to find a 'Holy Water'. Now go in
the door that opened right after you killed the Kyklops to finish the mission.

| Secret Missions..........  1 |  to kill it in a little bit, but before, let's
| Divinity Statues.........  1 |  do another easy Secret Mission. Just return
|                              |  to the previous area (where you killed the
o------------------------------o  Kyklops to have the Secret Mission begin.

.:*' Secret Mission 6 - Wandering Ghosts '*:.
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
                       -- "Acquire the Blue Orb that's floating in the air". --


 Ok, it'll take you about 15 seconds to finish this Secret Mission. All you
have to do is use the Sin Scissors as a "wall" and jump on them until you reach
the Blue Orb Fragment. Yep, that's it.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

 Once inside, where the Death Scythe is, how to kill it? Ok, I've discovered a
very good way, easy and quick to kill him. Stand still, with the Shotgun in one
hand and Alastor on the other. Keep pressed R1 to keep track of where he is.
Good so far? (I've barely said anything... lol) Start shooting at him over and
over and you'll notice that he'll start raising, little by little. Once he's at
the top point, he'll do a freefall attack. Jump it and land with an attack
(press X / [] while in midair). This way, you'll evade the attack, plus hurting
him, a lot.

 Keep this tactic until he's dead. Afterwards, a moving platform will appear
and start moving. Go to the top of the room, right above the door you used to
get in here, to find a 'Devil Star'. Now go to the top most of the left side
and find a glass floor. Go to the bottom of it to find a 'Blue Orb Fragment'.
Now go in the well near the entrance door to be greeted by a lot of Blades.

 Kill them all, then break the wall near the Statue of Divinity to have more
Blades come to play. If you kill them all, you'll receive a 'Blue Orb
Fragment'. At the end of the path, grab the 'Sign of Chastity' and return to
the first area.

 Go to the other side of the area and enter the bottom door. Use the Sign of
Chastity to receive the 'Chalice'. The doors will lock again, and Nelo appears
to try to kick your ass.

---------------------------
Boss #5 - Nelo Angelo (2nd)
---------------------------

 Once again, Nelo Angelo. He has the same attacks as before, plus some more
that look a lot like Dante's moves when he has Ifrit equipped. To me, he's
easier than before. Also, a good strategy I used (and discovered while writing
this), is to use Alastor, and while in Devil Form, attack him with the sword
non stop, even if he blocks. This way, when you make him take his "shield" off,
you'll keep hitting him, and staggering him, so do it Fast and Furious. Also,
if your DT empties, use your Handguns to refill them, or Taunt Nelo using R2.

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

 After the scene, jump on top of the arches that are on both sides of the area,
then Stinger to reach a platform. From here, use Stinger again to reach the
other side of the area. Insert the Chalice to have a door open underneath you.
Go there to finish this mission.

|Obtainable Weapons...Needlegun|   Have you learned the controls for the
| Blue Orb Fragments....... _1 |  underwater sections? Good. Kill some
| Yellow Orb...............[_] |  Marionettes on your way down and at the
| Secret Missions..........[_] |  bottom, break the Red Orb Stone then jump
| Divinity Statues.........[_] |  into the water. Once in here, look for an
|                              |  opening on the ship and go in. There will be
o------------------------------o  a Blade in here, but you still don't have a
                                  weapon for underwater battles, so let it live
for a little bit. You'll also see a Red Orb on top of the Blade. Before
anything, check the right side of the hole you used to came in here to get an
'Untouchable'. Now face the surface and swim towards it to get out of the
water, then go up the stairs.

 There will be 2 Blades up here, so kill them any way you want. Afterwards, go
to the other side of the room and examine the spark to find the 'Needlegun',
also examine the treasure chest behind the weapon to find a 'Devil Star'. Now
you can finally kick some asses underwater. Now go down the stairs next to
where the Needlegun was, kill the Blade and get some Red Orbs. Return upstairs
and go up another 2 set of stairs to exit the ship.

 Ok now... you'll see three pillars on the deck. All three of them have hidden
Red Orbs on several branches, so go get them all. Also, go to the top of the
southern most pillar and from there, Stinger to the southern part of the deck
to receive a 'Blue Orb Fragment'. Now examine the door that has two glowing
swords crossed to trigger a little scene.

 A Death Scythe appears before you. Kill it the same way you killed the
previous one. Now check the door again to trigger a spooky scene where the boat
takes of. And uh-oh, a familiar face appears to play with you... or should I
say 5 faces?

-----------------------
Boss #6 - Griffon (2nd)
-----------------------

Ok, Griffon got a lot harder this time. He almost starts all the time throwing
a red bird-like thing that's connected to you and damage you each time it
passes through you. You must shoot it as fast as you can (I really recommend
the Handguns) to get rid of it. Also, when Griffon stands still on the deck,
he'll be about to start another new attack where he'll throw lightning through
the whole deck. Keep pressed R1 and when the lightning is about to hit you,
roll over to evade it. That's it. The rest is the same as the previous Griffon.

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

 After the fight and the scene, enter the door to finish the mission.

| Obtainable Weapons.......[_] |   As you start this mission, check the statue
| Blue Orb Fragments....... _2 |  and grab the 'Staff of Hermes'. Now the whole
| Yellow Orb...............[_] |  ship is sinking (way to go, Dante). Check a
| Secret Missions..........  1 |  small hole next to the door to reach the room
| Divinity Statues.........  1 |  where you found the Needlegun. Kill both
|                              |  Blades in here and proceed to the exit.
o------------------------------o  Yes, that's it. BTW, if you just kill the two
                                  first Blades, then you rush to the exit, you
will get an S-rank mission, awarding you 1,500 Red Orbs (I did 55 seconds and
got 66 Red Orbs).

 Ok, once you finish Mission 13, Mission 14 will not start right away, so time
to get some things. Return inside the ship and go to the room where the
Needlegun was. Go down the stairs to be greeted by 3 Blades, but more
importantly, a 'Blue Orb Fragment'.

 Now return to the Captain's Room (where you got the Staff of Hermes) and check
the corpse of the captain to trigger a Secret Mission.

 This Secret Mission can be, or really hard, or really easy. It all depends on
how you can control Dante underwater. What you have to do is kill 8 Blades.
Yes, they all appear at the same time, so it may be rough for you. A tip...
never stay put. Keep swimming and also remember this, you can repel the Blades'
needles by shooting at them, so good luck.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

 Now get out of the ship and out of the water. Also, go in the "pool" to the
right to find another 'Blue Orb Fragment'. Now proceed and when some
Marionettes attack you, check the treasure chests on the left side of screen to
find a 'Holy Water'. Now proceed through the door at the top to finally enter
Mission 14.

o- Item Checklist: ------------o----------------------------------------------o
|                           _  |
| Obtainable Weapons.......[_] |   Start by following the path until you see a
| Blue Orb Fragments.......  2 |  Skeleton stuck in the wall (you'll also
| Yellow Orb............... _1 |  notice the locked gate on your way here,
| Secret Missions..........[_] |  remind it). Examine it to get the 'Emblem
| Divinity Statues.........  1 |  Shield'. Also activate the skeleton's arm
|                              |  to have the gate open and a trap start. Now
o------------------------------o  go to the gate while avoiding the spikes by
                                  jumping and stand on the platform to get to a
waterfall area.

 You'll be under a chapel-like roof. Use the pillars on the front to wall jump
and get on top of it. Now Stinger towards the little ledge and make your way up
to find a 'Yellow Orb'. From here, Stinger towards the right side of the screen
and if done right, you'll land on a ledge that has a 'Blue Orb Fragment' on it.

 Now jump to the bottom of the area and go under the waterfall to get a 'Holy
Water'. Now go in the opening just in front of the platform you used to get up
here.

 In this area will be either Shadows, Blades (two and a huge black one) or a
Death Scythe. Whichever they are, kill them or ignore them and do the
following: Go in the first opening that you come across and has torches on each
side. Go to the top, cross the bridge and go left to find a Red Orb Stone. Hit
it until it breaks and then go right from the bridge to drop on a ledge with a
'Blue Orb Fragment'.

 Now jump to the bottom and enter the opening and pay 200 Red Orbs to enter the
door. There are semi infinite Marionettes in the area, so fight as many as you
like. Also get the 'Devil Star' from the left side and get some hidden Red Orbs
on the right side (next to the red sealed door). Now pay 100 Red Orbs to the
door and enter the next door to finish the mission.

|Obtainable Weapons.Nightmare-?|   Remember this area? It's the area where you
| Blue Orb Fragments.......  2 |  first fought Griffon. You'll be surprised by
| Yellow Orb...............  1 |  either Kyklops or Blades. Before running to
| Secret Missions..........  1 |  the opposite side of the area, backtrack all
| Divinity Statues.........  2 |  the way to where you got the Emblem Shield
|                              |  and at the bottom of the platform you used to
o------------------------------o  get down here, go right and examine the skull
                                  in the wall to trigger a Secret Mission.

.:*' Secret Mission 8 - Treasure of the Reaper '*:.
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
                                                    -- "Defeat all enemies". --


 You'll need a lot of patience for this one. After examining the skull, a
Shadow will come out, so evade as soon as you have control. I really recommend
using the Shotgun or if you're quick enough, the Handguns. Also use Ifrit with
the Kick13 skill. Stay near the area where the Shadow came out from, so you
don't awake the other 2 Shadows (they'll awake eventually) and start shooting
at the Shadow until the core appears. Once this happens, use your DT and while
in DT, use Kick13 to have Dante perform a quick ass combo. Do 2 times this
combo on each Shadow. It should be easy enough.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

 Now return to the start of the mission and run to the opposite side of the
area (following the blue lights)to find a closed door. From here, there are two
areas you need to go in. To the left is the blue room and to the right is the
red room. I'll explain both, but in the first door you enter, you'll receive
the Pair of Lances and the last door you enter will net you the Nightmare-?.
Also, go in the Red Room and jump under the platform that has the Pair of
Lances/Nightmare-? to have a Blue Orb Fragment appear. I'll write for both
rooms, so here we go (I first entered the Red room and then the Red room):

..:: Red Room ::..
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 Go to the opposite of the room, grab the 'Luminite' from the stone to the
right and kill the Fetish. This enables Dante to light a certain radius of the
room (depends of where he is). Now go downstairs and kill another 2 Fetishes.
Also break the cracked wall on the right side to find a lot of breakable
objects which contain Red Orbs and a 'Yellow Orb'. Return to the hall where the
Fetishes were and go in the door.

There are no enemies here, but instead, there were 2 rune clocks placed, so hit
them, being really cautious with the spikes. Anyway, the first door on your
left leads to a path where your DT refills, so take advantage of it. Move to
the end of the path, drop down, ignoring the paths you created. Kill both
Blades and then start jumping under a little platform until you see a Blue Orb
Fragment appear. Return to the top, cross the bridges to find a 'Pair of
Lances' and the 'Blue Orb Fragment'. Now go out to have Sin Scythes appear
instead of Blades/Kyklops.

 Now go in the Blue Door.

..:: Blue Room ::..
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 Go downstairs and kill 3 Fetishes. Also break the cracked wall on the left
side to find a lot of breakable objects which contain Red Orbs, a 'Holy Water',
and a 'Blue Orb Fragment'. Return to the hall where the Fetishes were and go in
the door.

There will be some Sin Scythes here to greet you, so dispose of them, but
beware of the really tight space you have, as well as the moving floor and the
spikes at the back and the ones coming out of the wall. Also, the "fountain"
where you could recharge your DT is also here. When you get to the end, you'll
see that floor has purple goo-like. You can use Air Raid to cross it and grab
the 'Nightmare-?'. This weapon is my most hated and unused Firearm, why?!
Because, when you charge it, it uses 3 complete DT Symbols, and the only thing
it does is bounce.

 Now go to the closed door and use the Pair of Lances to enter the Coliseum.
Before stepping on the cyan glyph in middle of the area, go to the top of the
structure using either portal at both sides of this area. Up here, get the
'Blue Orb Fragment' by jumping in the middle. Now step on the cyan glyph to
trigger a scene with Griffon for the third and last time.

-----------------------
Boss #7 - Griffon (3rd)
-----------------------

Ok, Griffon got a lot harder this time. He almost starts all the time dashing
towards you. But that's easy to evade. He's the same old Griffon from the ship.
Also, once you've taken 1/3 of it's HP, you'll break his wing, thus being
unable to fly. He'll become berserk, so evade all his physical attacks, using
Air Raid, of course. He also has a new attack, in which he creates several
lightning pillars that advance towards you. Time them well to evade them, as
they take a lot of health. ;P

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

 After the fight, watch the scene involving Trish, then jump into the central
pillar (the one that squashed Griffon). Now grab the 'Wheel of Destiny' to end
this mission.

              -- "Acquire the Blue Orb at the end of the stairway of death". --


 Ok, this mission is like the one where you needed to jump on the Sin Scissors.
You need to jump all the way to the top of the stairway of Sargasso to find a
Blue Orb Fragment at the top. It may take a while, but you'll do it soon
enough. BTW, the Sargasso don't attack.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

 Once at the area where you fought Griffon for the first time, before returning
to the castle, go to where you got Ifrit to get an 'Untouchable'. Now return to
the castle and insert the Wheel of Destiny to have the drawbridge come down,
allowing you to enter the castle once again.

 The castle is dark as hell, but thank goodness that we got that Luminite. At
the main hall (where you started the game), jump on top of the horse's head to
have a 'Blue Orb Fragment' appear. Now simply Stinger towards it. Now check the
lower level, at the right side for another 'Blue Orb Fragment'.

 Hit the rune clock on the opposite side of where you entered to trigger a
scene where a new enemy appears, the Plasma. These are the most annoying
enemies in the game, IMO. When you're attacking them, the may split, being more
Plasmas to fight. Anyway, kill it to have the seal removed.

 Go to the hall from the airplane room and here, go left (Dante's) and jump
under the face on top of the painting to have a another 'Blue Orb Fragment'
appear. Now go to the end of the hall and enter the Cathedral, the place where
you fought your very first boss fight.

 Hit the rune clock right next to you and quickly examine the puddle in middle
of the room to trigger a Boss Fight.

-------------------------
Boss #8 - Nightmare (1st)
-------------------------

 Nightmare, hardest boss in all the game. He's simply so powerful, that it's
worth writing all attacks and everything about him.

 Nightmare has two forms, liquid and solid. When he's liquid, hit any of the
rune clocks until it fills to have Nightmare gets solid. He also, just like the
Shadows, has a core, which can appear either in his ass, or over his back. He
has 2 attacks when it comes out of his ass and 1 attack when it comes over his
back.

Maggots: An attack that he has when in liquid form. He'll send "maggots"
         towards you, sticking to you and exploding, turning the place into a
         small iceberg. Simply run to shake them off

Swallow: Another attack when he's in his liquid form. A "mouth" similar to the
         ones the Shadows have will try and engulf you from the bottom, taking
         to another "dimension". Simply jump to avoid it. Also, in this first
         battle with Nightmare, you'll have to fight Phantom in this other
         dimension. At the second fight, you'll have to kill Griffon and at the
         third, you'll have to fight Nelo.

Machine Gun: When Nightmare turns to his solid form, the first thing he'll do
             is use this attack. Simply run to avoid the attack.

Claw: This is one attack that he uses when the core comes right out of behind.
      He'll try to impale you three times, so be really careful. The claw comes
      out of his left side.

Pin Missile: Another attack from behind. I highly recommend having Ifrit's
             Rolling Blaze, so at the moment you jump, you can return him his
             missiles.

Ice Beam: This is my favorite. When the core comes out of his back, wait until
          all the light coming out vanishes, jump on his back and beat the shit
          out of him.

 These are the attacks. The best way to hurt him is to wait until he's about to
use his Ice Beam, then use Air Raid and/or if you have it, Inferno.

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

 Once you've killed it, it's time to go finish another Secret Mission. Simply
return to the airplane room to enter the Secret Mission.

.:*' Secret Mission 10 - Shadow of Darkness '*:.
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
                                             -- "Hunt down all the Shadows". --


 There are a grand total of 4 Shadows in this Secret Mission. There are 2 on
top of the airplane in this room. Remember the previous strategy? Use Ifrit's
Kick13 speed combo and Ebony & Ivory to kill both. They're a bit harder, simply
because the room is dark and it's pretty hard to spot them. Now go to the main
hall (where you started the game) and go to the place where you got the first
Blue Orb Fragment. Another Shadow is there. Now go in the next room (where you
entered from the outer area) to find the last Shadow.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

 Back at the room where you killed Nightmare, go out to the bridge and go to
the other side. Now examine the symbol of Hermes at the back and use the Staff
of Hermes to have two paintings appear. Go in the red one (right one) and grab
the 'Blue Orb Fragment' from the corner and on top of the bed for an
'Untouchable'.

 Exit the painting and enter the left one to end the mission. OMFG... I went to
Taco Bell and left the PS2 on. I did 4:10:40, got 2,627 Red Orbs and got a B-
rank mission... lol :P

                   -- "Acquire the Blue Orb that's located high in the sky". --


 Many people this Secret Mission is one of the hardest. Just kill the Sin
Scythe the way I told you to the first time we met him and afterwards, jump on
top of the arch right above the door. You might remember doing this, eh? From
here, simply jump and use Air Raid. Now fly towards the Blue Orb Fragment what
is almost in middle of the bridge.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

 Return inside the painting and go to the top of the spiral staircase and enter
the door. Approach the end of the  room to have a painting appear just like
before. Enter it and try going in the door to be greeted with a scene with a
new type of enemy, the Frosts, and two of them. They're like an evolved form of
the Blades, but with Ice elemental... and you know what is weak against ice,
right? That's right, Ifrit is a great choice against them, specially if you
have Inferno, with two of them and they're gone. Now enter the door.

 In this hall, follow it to the end, ignoring the forking path to the right and
killing the Marionettes and Fetishes if you want. There's a skeleton dragon in
this room, and it'll be throwing fireballs towards you. What you need to do is
to slash the fireballs right back at it, 3 times total to destroy it. A mirror
appeared near the entrance of the room, so use the crank right next to it to
trigger a scene.

 Now jump on to the second floor on the right side, go outside and a 'Blue Orb
Fragment' will drop. Get it and start jumping on the blue platforms that only
appear when lightning strikes and cross to the other side, then grab the
'Quicksilver'.

 Remember the forking path you ignored previously? Go there and use the
Quicksilver at the door to open it to trigger a scene with Nelo Angelo.

---------------------------
Boss #9 - Nelo Angelo (3rd)
---------------------------

 Once again, Nelo Angelo. He has the same attacks as before, plus some more
that look a lot like Dante's moves when he has Ifrit equipped. To me, he's
easier than before. Also, a good strategy I used (and discovered while writing
this), is to use Alastor, and while in Devil Form, attack him with the sword
non stop, even if he blocks. This way, when you make him take his "shield" off,
you'll keep hitting him, and staggering him, so do it Fast and Furious. Also,
if your DT empties, use your Handguns to refill them, or Taunt Nelo using R2.
He also has some new attacks, in which he'll start floating on top of the door
you just used and start throwing crystal swords at you.

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

 Watch the scene after the battle to find something out something really
amazing.

                                  then enter the room right in front of the one
you're in. You'll find a lot of Red Orbs in this small room and when you're
done, return to the hall, go right and enter the room on the left to find a
lone barrel with a 'Blue Orb Fragment'. Now proceed to the next room.

 Kill three Sin Scissors in this room, then exit the water area. In this tower,
(remember it?), locate the rune clock, face it and to Dante's right on an upper
level is a little platform sticking out. Hit the rune clock, then swim there
and wait until the water drains. If done well, a 'Blue Orb Fragment' will drop
on you.

 Hit the rune clock again and go to the top of the tower to find the
"Philosopher's Egg". Now start descending the stairs and enter the red door
when you get to it. Enter the door on the top right of the area and get a 'Blue
Orb Fragment' at the end of the hall. Now go to the floor and examine the blue
light, use the Philosopher's Egg to have Nightmare appear again and play with
you.

--------------------------
Boss #10 - Nightmare (2nd)
--------------------------

 Nightmare, hardest boss in all the game. He's simply so powerful, that it's
worth writing all attacks and everything about him.

 Nightmare has two forms, liquid and solid. When he's liquid, hit any of the
rune clocks until it fills to have Nightmare gets solid. He also, just like the
Shadows, has a core, which can appear either in his ass, or over his back. He
has 2 attacks when it comes out of his ass and 1 attack when it comes over his
back. He has a new attack, and it's when the core appears on the back, he
throws at you what looks like a boomerang.

Maggots: An attack that he has when in liquid form. He'll send "maggots"
         towards you, sticking to you and exploding, turning the place into a
         small iceberg. Simply run to shake them off

Swallow: Another attack when he's in his liquid form. A "mouth" similar to the
         ones the Shadows have will try and engulf you from the bottom, taking
         to another "dimension". Simply jump to avoid it. Also, in this first
         battle with Nightmare, you'll have to fight Phantom in this other
         dimension. At the second fight, you'll have to kill Griffon and at the
         third, you'll have to fight Nelo.

Machine Gun: When Nightmare turns to his solid form, the first thing he'll do
             is use this attack. Simply run to avoid the attack.

Claw: This is one attack that he uses when the core comes right out of behind.
      He'll try to impale you three times, so be really careful. The claw comes
      out of his left side.

Pin Missile: Another attack from behind. I highly recommend having Ifrit's
             Rolling Blaze, so at the moment you jump, you can return him his
             missiles.

Ice Beam: This is my favorite. When the core comes out of his back, wait until
          all the light coming out vanishes, jump on his back and beat the shit
          out of him.

Boomerang: When the core comes out of his back, find a safe spot or start Air
           Raiding and attacking him so you can evade it's attack.

 These are the attacks. The best way to hurt him is to wait until he's about to
use his Ice Beam, then use Air Raid and/or if you have it, Inferno. Also, if
you're using Sparda, which is good, attack the core. Sparda's power is equal to
the power Alastor has during DT.

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

 After defeating Nightmare, check the blue flame to receive the "Elixir" and
finish the mission.

 Now go to the top and before dropping, wall jump on top of the right
structure, then drop down to get the 'Blue Orb Fragment'. Return to the top and
before dropping again, wall jump on top of the tower to the left (where you got
the Blue Orb Fragment during Mission 5) to get another 'Blue Orb Fragment'. Now
return to the room where you first met Nightmare and examine the pond to enter

 Once you've dealt like 5/6 of it's health a scene triggers and now you also
have to keep moving so you can avoid the attacks. Once you've taken all his
health away, he'll regain like 40% of his health, and will also go berserk, so
attack it with Air Raid to be a bit safer.

This Secret Mission looks more like a normal mission. Follow the path and at
the fork you come across, go either way and get the complete 'Blue Orb' that's
waiting for you there. Kill the Nobody and follow the northern path, then kill
another Nobody and keep following the northern path.

 When the path forks to the left, ignore it and keep going north, kill the
Nobody and enter the membrane. You'll now be in what looks like the inside of a
volcano. Go to the left to find a huge Red Orb Stone. Break it and return to
the left side of the entrance to find some ledges. Climb on them, then kill the
dinosaur blowing fire (hit it) to have some Frosts appear on the lower level.
Once you kill them, return to the platform where you destroyed the dinosaur and
follow the left path, timing your jumps on the eyeball platforms. At the top,
you'll see something shining. Examine it to get the 'Bangle of Time'.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

 Check the door to the right side of the Holy Water you picked up earlier. Go
to the opposite side of the room and hit the big white orb to open a door in
the previous room. Return to the previous room and enter the membrane shown to
you in the scene.

 At the fork you get to, go left, kill the Nobody. Proceed, kill another Nobody
and at the forking path to the right, keep going north to find another Nobody.
Kill in and enter the membrane.

 You'll be in another room that looks like the inside of a volcano. Kill both
Plasmas that are here and follow the path until you reach a rune clock. Go up
the ledges, then the platforms. Destroy the Red Orb Stone, hit the rune clock
and keep going up until you get to a membrane, which you should enter.

 You'll be at the room with the heart, so jump to the other side, hit the rune
clock to have the door to Mundus open. Simply drop, open the door to finish the
mission.

Boss #12 - Mundus (1st)
-----------------------

 Finally, time to battle Mundus. His attacks deal a lot of damage, so be really
careful. You'll be flying during the whole battle, so the controls change a
little bit. Instead of jumping, you can now speed up while keeping pressed the
jump button. You shoot fireballs with the shooting button and do a Vortex with
the sword button.

 When Mundus has 4 balls floating around him, shoot them down so you can
actually damage him. He also has an attack that looks like Nightmare's machine
Gun, only that he has 6 circles instead of 2. There's another attack in which
he throws red spears at you, from his hands and from the back. Just circle the
screen to avoid them all. He also has an attack that looks like Griffon's
Lightning Pillars, as well as some meteorites (these are not from Griffon).
When your DT fills, you can invoke a dragon to do massive damage on Mundus.
Wait a moment, almost forgot another attack. When you see that white glyphs are
appearing around Mundus, he'll use a beam that is either vertical or
horizontal.

 I suggest filling all your Devil Symbols and then invoke the dragon. Keep this
and you'll win the battle.

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

-----------------------
Boss #13 - Mundus (2nd)
-----------------------

 Mundus gets hard as hell. You'll see several orbs floating around the
battlefield. The small ones throw you little bullets, while the big ones just
stay there. You can destroy the large orbs to have it refill your DT by 4
symbols. He will pull towards himself the large orbs that were left there,
sending you a powerful beam for each large orb he absorbed. You can repel these
by hitting them with your sword. He also has a meteor attack like Phantom's,
but you know how to evade that one, right?

 Also, when a fire dragon appears, try killing it for health. Use all the items
you need, specially Devil Stars. Use DT as soon as you can to deal massive
damage on Mundus.

 Watch the very sad scene after the fights.

 This Secret Mission is kinda hard. You have to kill the Sin Scissor in one
attack. Wait until he's in front of you. When he's about to attack you, hit him
with Alastor to break his guard. When this happens, he'll down his scissors for
a bit. Approach him as near as you can and put a Shotgun bullet through his
mask. If you killed him in one shot, you did it.

 Ok, this Secret Mission is the easiest of all. You need to kill 100 mini
Phantoms in 30 sec. That's easy, just take out your Handguns and start shooting
at them like crazy. There are a bunch right where you enter (like 60), at the
left side of the door that leads to the bridge are more (like 30) and at the

This Secret Mission is exactly the same as the previous one, only that you
can't use any weapons. What to do...? What to do...? Use your DT and start
running through the room until you kill them all. By the way, you have 20
seconds to do it.

really not much to say. Just try and keep focused on one Shadow at a time,
using the strategy I told you before. Once the first one is gone, it should be
a bit easier, since you only have two Shadows to worry about, instead of three.
Keep the same strategy with the other 2 and you eventually win. Please note,
however, that if you're killed in this Secret Mission, is game over, so use
your Vital Star (if you have any) if you need to.

- Mission: 7

                              -- "Lure the Kyklops into their mutual death". --


 Another hard Secret Mission. What you have to do is have one Kyklope kill the
other one. How to do that? Well, for me, the easiest and quickest way to do it
is just to be in between them and when they attack by spitting rocks, quickly
jump to have the rocks hit the other Kyklope. Keep doing this until one dies.
Remember that your vitality is still depleting, so try and make it quick. Once
this happens, the Blue Orb Fragment appears near the entrance of the door. Nab
it and exit to finish the Secret Mission.

                       -- "Acquire the Blue Orb that's floating in the air". --


 Ok, it'll take you about 15 seconds to finish this Secret Mission. All you
have to do is use the Sin Scissors as a "wall" and jump on them until you reach
the Blue Orb Fragment. Yep, that's it.

         Statue is)

                 -- "Eliminate all enemies and escape from the confinement". --


 This Secret Mission can be, or really hard, or really easy. It all depends on
how you can control Dante underwater. What you have to do is kill 8 Blades.
Yes, they all appear at the same time, so it may be rough for you. A tip...
never stay put. Keep swimming and also remember this, you can repel the Blades'
needles by shooting at them, so good luck.

- Where: The room where the booby trap is, previous to the waterfall area

                                                    -- "Defeat all enemies". --


 You'll need a lot of patience for this one. After examining the skull, a
Shadow will come out, so evade as soon as you have control. I really recommend
using the Shotgun or if you're quick enough, the Handguns. Also use Ifrit with
the Kick13 skill. Stay near the area where the Shadow came out from, so you
don't awake the other 2 Shadows (they'll awake eventually) and start shooting
at the Shadow until the core appears. Once this happens, use your DT and while
in DT, use Kick13 to have Dante perform a quick ass combo. Do 2 times this
combo on each Shadow. It should be easy enough.

- Where: Coliseum (where you fought Griffon for the last time)

              -- "Acquire the Blue Orb at the end of the stairway of death". --


 Ok, this mission is like the one where you needed to jump on the Sin Scissors.
You need to jump all the way to the top of the stairway of Sargasso to find a
Blue Orb Fragment at the top. It may take a while, but you'll do it soon
enough. BTW, the Sargasso don't attack.

- Where: Go to the airplane room

                                             -- "Hunt down all the Shadows". --


 There are a grand total of 4 Shadows in this Secret Mission. There are 2 on
top of the airplane in this room. Remember the previous strategy? Use Ifrit's
Kick13 speed combo and Ebony & Ivory to kill both. They're a bit harder, simply
because the room is dark and it's pretty hard to spot them. Now go to the main
hall (where you started the game) and go to the place where you got the first
Blue Orb Fragment. Another Shadow is there. Now go in the next room (where you
entered from the outer area) to find the last Shadow.

- Where: Bridge area, on the side of the cathedral. Also, you can't fall to the
         water or you'll have to reset the game

                   -- "Acquire the Blue Orb that's located high in the sky". --


 Many people this Secret Mission is one of the hardest. Just kill the Sin
Scythe the way I told you to the first time we met him and afterwards, jump on
top of the arch right above the door. You might remember doing this, eh? From
here, simply jump and use Air Raid. Now fly towards the Blue Orb Fragment what
is almost in middle of the bridge.

- Mission: 21
- Time: As you start
- Where: Examine the wall in front of the Divinity Statue

            -- "Find the hidden bangle that resides in the secret corridor". --


This Secret Mission looks more like a normal mission. Follow the path and at
the fork you come across, go either way and get the complete 'Blue Orb' that's
waiting for you there. Kill the Nobody and follow the northern path, then kill
another Nobody and keep following the northern path.

 When the path forks to the left, ignore it and keep going north, kill the
Nobody and enter the membrane. You'll now be in what looks like the inside of a
volcano. Go to the left to find a huge Red Orb Stone. Break it and return to
the left side of the entrance to find some ledges. Climb on them, then kill the
dinosaur blowing fire (hit it) to have some Frosts appear on the lower level.
Once you kill them, return to the platform where you destroyed the dinosaur and
follow the left path, timing your jumps on the eyeball platforms. At the top,
you'll see something shining. Examine it to get the 'Bangle of Time'.
