Hi guys...I am atomaster. My name is Anirudh and I am from India. I play a 
variety of games and like mostly RPG games. I have played games on the PC
and from the consoles like DS, GBA, GBC, SNES and many other.

But the unfortunate thing is that I played all of them on emus. Here in India,
especially where I live, we dont get any DSs or GBAs. So I may have missed
the real fun of these games.

But I don't much mind this. Can't do anything. Can I?
Some of the games which I have played are 

- P C   G A M E S 
 
Age of Empires, Hulk, Spiderman, Halo, Project IGI, Sim city
Need for Speed U2 etc.

- G B A   G A M E S 

Pokemon Sapphire[My first GBA game]
Pokemon Red, Blue, Silver, Ruby, Emerald
Urbz Sims in the city, Lord of the Rings TTT,
Harry Potter OOP, One piece, Naruto, Beyblade GR etc.

- D S   G A M E S 

Pokemon D/P and PMD Time/Darkness, BEN 10
Naruto, My Sims, Star Wars the force unleashed,
Animal Crossing Wild World etc.

AND MANY MORE...

This is my second Walkthrough. But it can be called first since my "first" one
was an incomplete one. It was for Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Time.
But I hope "this" one will be complete.

In this walkthrough I have included all the conversation of the game so it is
much like a game script too. I also warn the readers that this is 'NOT' 
spoiler free. Rather this is a huge spoiler if you are not careful.

Players will initially take on the role of Overlord Laharl, a young demon prince
who has just woken from a two-year long nap and finds out that his father, who
was the king, has passed away. In order to regain his rightful title as King of
the Netherworld, Laharl sets off on a demonic adventure, but must do so with a
back stabbing servant, love stupid angel, and a few disgruntled penguins who
are looking for trouble.

A Button -      Talk to characters or examine items in the castle, proceed 
                through text, choose a character on the battlefield, or make
                a selection in menus.

B Button -      Exit out of menus, cancel selections, and proceed through text.
                Delete letters on the name-entering screen.

X Button -      Opens the main menu in the castle and on the battlefield,
                although the menus have different options.  Sorts items in
                the Item Bag and Storage menus, and unequips items on the
                Character Equipment menu, which sends them to the Item Bag or
                Warehouse.  Move characters on the battlefield while
                attempting to perform a skill.

Y Button -      No function in the castle or most menus.  On the Item Info and
                Character Info menus, it switches the information show in a
                cycle.  Heals everyone at the same time at the hospital.  Hold
                this button down and press L to zoom in or out during battles.
                Hold this button down and press R to cycle through your base
                panel and your deployed characters during battle.  Hold this
                button down while the cursor is on a character and press a
                direction on the D.Pad (not the control stick) to change the
                direction the character is facing.

L/R Buttons -   Scroll through character and item lists on various menus a page
                at a time; L scrolls up and R scrolls down.  Advance or go back
                a space on the name-entering screen.  Switch between characters
                on various screens

Start Button -  Send items from the Item Bag to the Storage when using the
                Item command on a battlefield.

Select Button - Turns Geo Panels on or off on battlefields.

 |         Well, if that's the case...there's only one thing left to do. |
 |                                                                       |
 |Laharl : ...What fool dares awaken me, the great Laharl?               |
 |                                                                       |
 |Etna   : Prince! I am glad you're still alive.                         | 
 |                                                                       |  
 |Laharl : Who said I was dead?                                          | 
 |         I was just taking a nap.                                      |
 |         Anyways...                                                    |
 |         Why are all those weapons behind you?                         |
 |                                                                       | 
 |Etna   : Well, I was having a hard time waking you up...               | 
 |                                                                       |
 |Laharl : Are you sure you weren't trying kill me instead?              |
 |                                                                       |
 |Etna   : No...Ah...I mean, yes.                                        |
 |         I just wanted to wake you up.                                 |
 |                                                                       |
 |Laharl : Hmph...whatever.                                              |
 |         ...So, what is it?                                            | 
 |         You better have a good reason for waking me up.               |  
 |                                                                       | 
 |Etna   : Oh, yeah.                                                     | 
 |         Big news. Your father, King Krichevskoy, has died.            | 
 |                                                                       |  
 |Laharl : He what...!?                                                  |
 |         When !?                                                       |
 |                                                                       |
 |Etna   : Two years ago.                                                |
 |                                                                       |
 |Laharl : ...Wait a second.                                             |
 |         So you're telling me that I've been sleeping for over         |
 |         two years?                                                    |
 |                                                                       |
 |Etna   : Yup.                                                          |
 |                                                                       |
 |Laharl : Yup...!?                                                      |   
 |         Why didn't you wake me up earlier!?                           |
 |                                                                       |
 |Etna   : Excuse me, but what do you think I've been doing all this     |
 |         time?                                                         |
 |         The Netherworld has gone to hell while you were sleeping.     |
 |         It's not my fault if some other demon steals the title of     |
 |         Overlord.                                                     |
 |                                                                       |
 |Laharl : What...?                                                      |
 |         Have they forgotten whose title they are trying to steal?     |
 |         Hmhmhm...                                                     |
 |         How bold of them!                                             |
 |         I shall show no mercy...for, I am Laharl, the rightful        |
 |         heir to the throne!                                           |
 |         Haaahahaha!!!!                                                |
 |                                                                       |
 |Etna   : Your humble vassal, Etna, will accompany you.                 |
 |                                                                       |
 |                   Etna joined your party!                             |
 |                                                                       |

At last you gain control of the prince and the game starts...Its in the same
room in which Etna had awakened you from your deep slumber. You  can check out
the weapons behind you, but it'll be of no use.

So exit the room from the exit in the botton left corner. As you come into the
next room, you'll see a big throne. Go to its back side and press A. You'll be
asked if you want to press the switch and choose YES. If you press A again,
it'll say that you have pressed it too hard and its stuck and broken. But never
mind that and descend the steps.

You'll see some more vassals of your father, the king. Talk to them for some
small chuckles.

1) Manty  : That's just like you, Prince, taking a two-year nap.
   Laharl : I only planned on napping for about ten days...
            Hmmm... Something's not right.

2) Goleck : All the royal vassals left the castle shortly after the king died.
   Laharl : Even with me still around?
   Etna   : Well, you were sleeping. They must have forgotten about you.

3) Dratti : Oh well, looks like I wasted my time digging that grave for you.
   Laharl : I'll put You in that grave instead!

Follow the blue carpet and exit the room. You'll then be in a corridor. You can
go either way. If you move right, you'll come across the Music Shop and he says
that it is under construction and asks you to come back later. 

Anyway, get down the stairs and you'll see more vassals. Touch the spear like
thing for weapon tutorials.

1)Weapon - Fists
2)Weapon - Sword
3)Weapon - Spear
4)Weapon - Axe
5)Weapon - Bow
6)Weapon - Gun
7)Weapon - Staff

I'll list all the tutorials in the same order.

 |Brawlers rely primarily on their fists as weapons.                        |
 |                                                                          |
 |Normal attacks have a high hit percentage and slightly higher chance of   |
 |Team Attack than other weapons.                                           |
 |                                                                          |
 |The special techniques learned with fists are short-range and are of small|
 |Area Of Effect.                                                           |
 |                                                                          |
 |But, many will allow you to knock enemies into different positions.       |
 |                                                                          |

 |                                                                          |
 |< T U T O R I A L :   W E A P O N   -   S W O R D  >                      |
 |                                                                          |
 |A sword is a typical weapon for battle.                                   |
 |                                                                          |
 |Normal Attacks with a sword do not have any distinctive characteristics.  |
 |                                                                          |
 |However, the Special Techniques learned with a sword vary greatly, so they|
 |will be useful in many situations.                                        |
 |                                                                          |
 |In general, they are easy to use, but not very powerful and require a lot |
 |of SP.                                                                    |
 |                                                                          |

 |< T U T O R I A L :   W E A P O N   -   S P E A R >                       |
 |                                                                          |
 |The spear is another popular weapon.                                      |
 |                                                                          |
 |While normal attacks with a spear are a bit weak, you have the advantage  |
 |of being able to attack from two panels away.                             |
 |                                                                          |
 |The special techniques learned with a spear generally have a short range, |
 |but the area of effect varies.                                            |
 |                                                                          |
 |Furthermore, some techniques allow you to change your position.           |
 |                                                                          |

 |< T U T O R I A L :   W E A P O N   -   A X E >                           |
 |                                                                          |
 |The axe is a difficult weapon to use.                                     |
 |                                                                          |
 |Normal attacks have a low hit percentage, but deal major damage when they |
 |do hit.                                                                   |
 |                                                                          |
 |The special techniques learned with an Axe have a short range and can be  |
 |used only against a single enemy.                                         |
 |                                                                          |
 |It may seem restrictive, but since its limitations are clear, you could   |
 | say an Axe is easy to use.                                               |
 |                                                                          |
 |Also, when stronger special techniques are available, the chances of      |
 |lowering an opponent's DEF are high.                                      |
 |                                                                          |

 |Bows are long range weapons that archers specialize in.                   |
 |                                                                          |
 |Normal attacks deal damage according to the formula:                      |
 |        (ATK/2) + (HIT/2) = Total Damage.                                 |
 |                                                                          |
 |The special techniques learned with a bow have long range and can affect  |
 |single or multiple targets.                                               |
 |                                                                          |
 |However, their restrictions of area of affect and required action space   |
 |will take some time to get used to.                                       |

Thats the end of the weapon tutorials.

You can talk to the other vassals or demons, whatever you call them.

1)Ghoss  : Good morning, Prince.
           How are you feeling?

  Laharl : Couldn't be worse.
           My body feels really stiff from sleeping too much.
  
  Etna   : WHy don't you warm up on the "Tutorial" Map?
           Go see the dimensional Gatekeeper and she'll send you there.



2)Gargo  : In order to prevent intruders, I have closed all the gates.
           Please talk to the "Dimensional Gatekeeper" if you'd like to
           leave the castle.

  Laharl : Yeah, whatever...
           You probably just didn't want to watch the gate.
  

So, head up the stairs on the left and move into the next room. Its gonna be
the room most frequently visited by you, since it contains almost everything
like: Hospital, Shop, Dark Assembly, Item World and most importantly, the
Dimensional Gatekeeper.

As you go down the stairs, you'll be taken into a brief tutorial about Items.

 |< T U T O R I A L >                                                       |

 |Items can be purchased at the "Rosen Queen Co., Netherworld Branch".      |
 |                                                                          | 
 |Each character can equip upto 4 items. A character can equip 1 weapon and |
 |3 other items, such as armor.                                             |
 |                                                                          | 
 |Monsters can only equip weapons from the "Monster Only Weapons" category. |
 |                                                                          | 
 |It is best to equip a weapon that suit's a character's inherent strengths.|
 |                                                                          |

Then go forward and take your time observing the room and talking to various
people there. They will tell whatever you need to know. And remember whatever
you have seen: the shops, hospital, item world, dark congress etc.,

To the south of the shop, you'll notice three persons.

1)Pleinair : The assembly is currently not in session.

2)Kanna    : 
             There are many features in this game, like the Dark Assembly and
             the Item World.
             Ask the appropriate people for more info.
             Don't worry, you can still beat the game with minimal knowledge.

3)Save shop: I keep Netherworld's records...
             Here, you may view the history of Netherworld.
             If you get an item, it will be recorded and won't disappear, even
             if you get rid of it.
             Though this is just a record, it might be useful to you as a guide.
             Records aren't worth any money or anything, but they can be fun.
             How you use my records depends on you. So what do you wish to do?

             (o)Collection Reord
             (o)Dark record
             (o)Collection Book
             (o)Return

Check it out if you wish to. Else go to the North of the Item shop, to meet
Magdalena.

Hospital   : 
             Welcome to the Netherworld Hospital.
             Here, we'll treat your wounds and heal any and all damage you 
             may have taken.
             We will, of course, charge you accordingly.
             You can earn prizes based on the total HP and SP recovered, so
             please go get thrased in battle.
             
             (o)Get Treated
             (o)Claim Prize

It is not very useful at this very moment. But once you get out of the map,
it'll be the first place you rush to.

So, go still up and meet Zommie and Dimensional Gate Keeper.

1)Zommie   : Eat, Sleep, and do anything you want all day...
             Its sooooo good to be a demon!

  Laharl   : Have you ever thought of working for me?

  Zommie   : Hahahaha. Of course not. 


2)Item World : This is the Item World Gateway Center. We are not open yet.


So, move still upwards towards the steps and...

Now there'll be a long conversation between Laharl and Etna.

Laharl : Now, then...time for a little warm-up.
         I feel a little rusty.

Etna   : Ah, Prince.
         We've got company...how convenient.

Laharl : Stray demons, huh...

Etna   : Allow me, Prince.
         You may be a little out of practice after your long slumber.

Laharl : Don't worry, I came prepared!

Etna   : Come on, Prinny Squad!!
         ... 
         Get your butts out here, NOW!!
         So Prince, whaddya think of this Prinny Squad I hired?
         They are my loyal servants; they'll do anything I say.

Laharl : Are you sure about that?

Etna   : See, they're loyal.

Laharl : ...Does it make sense to beat up your allies before a battle?
         Anyways, I think we've made those demons wait long enough already.

Etna   : Hey, you're right.
         How nice of them to be so patient.

Laharl : Yeah, that's considerate of them.
         To show my appreciation, I'll beat them only half to death.

Etna   : Oh, you're so kind. If I were you, I'd beat them all the way to death.

Laharl : K,Kind !?
         Stop that! That word gives me goosebumps!
         Dammit! I take it back!
         I'm gonna beat them all the way to death!

Etna   : (He's still a kid, so quick-tempered.)
         (It looks like carrying out my plan will be a lot easier than I 
         thought).

Laharl : Hm?
         You say something?

Etna   : Oh, nothing, nothing at all.
         So, what are your orders, Prince?
         ...You do remember how to fight, right?

 |Just in case you forgot, let me explain the basics of battle.             |
 |                                                                          | 
 |Move the cursor over the "Base Panel" and press the A button to select    |
 |the characters you wish to dispatch.                                      |
 |                                                                          |
 |If you want to cancel an order to dispatch a character, move the cursor   |
 |over the character and press the B buton.                                 | 
 |                                                                          |
 |For example, if you press the B button here...you can cancel the action.  |
 |                                                                          |
 |Now let's issue a command to a dispatched character.                      |
 |                                                                          |
 |First, move him/her next to an enemy...and select "Attack".               |
 |                                                                          |
 |You have now assigned an action. However, the character won't attack      | 
 |immediately.                                                              |
 |                                                                          |
 |If you want to execute the actions which you've assigned, open the menu   |
 |and select either "Execute" or "End Turn".                                |
 |                                                                          |
 |In this case, let's pick "Execute".                                       |
 |                                                                          |
 |See? The character attacked.                                              |
 |                                                                          |
 |Assign Actions -> X button -> Execute.                                    |
 |Remember this. You'll be using it a lot.                                  |
 |                                                                          |
 |If you assign actions to multiple characters, they'll be executed in the  |
 |order that you assign them.                                               |
 |                                                                          |
 |Be careful, you can't cancel actions once you've execute them.            |
 |                                                                          |
 |After you're done issuing the commands, open the menu and end your turn.  |
 |                                                                          |
 |It will then be the Enemy's turn.                                         |
 |                                                                          |

Laharl : Owww...
         Why do I have to be the one to do this? I'm the next Overlord.
         For crying out loud!

Etna   : ...This was an example of something NOT to do.
         Only an idiot would rush straight into enemy alone.

Laharl : You made me do it!!

Etna   : Characters killed in battle, like our Prince here, can be revived
         by paying Hell (HL) to the Castle's Hospital.
         If all of your dispatched characters are defeated, the game will be
         over.

Laharl : So, the basic idea is to gang up on one character and beat, the living
         day lights out of him, huh?

Etna   : Exactly, Prince.
         Remember to use your head next time.

Laharl : You're the one who told me to do it!!

Etna   : Team attacks sometimes occur when allies are positioned next to 
         attacking characters.
         If several characters attack the enemy in a row, a "combo" will
         result and greater damage will be dealt.
         If you want to know more, press the X button and select "Help" 
         from the menu.
         So now you'll get to fight your first battle indeed.

Press A on the base panel (blue one)
and dispatch the characters one by one. Move two of your characters to each
enemy and put the last character on the base panel itself.

Make your characters attack their respective enemy. If one of the two enemies
does not die, make your last character go and kill him.

Then end your turn. And in your turn, attack the last enemy by ganging up on
him.
         
This level will be a piece of cake for you. After you kill all the enemies,
the stage clears.

You may get an item and some Hell (HL). You can go back to the castle by
pressing B on the "Tutorial Select Screen".

Then go to the Netherworld Hospital and Heal. Then save your game, before
attempting the next area. From now on I will call this process as HEAL AND SAVE.

Then go back to the Dimensional Gate keeper and select Battle Basics 2.

 |         I'll throw you next to an enemy.                                 |

 |Etna   : See? That covered a lot of ground. Now, you're able to attack.   |
 |         You can use "Lift" and "Throw" on both allies and enemies.       |
 |         Keep in mind that only humanoid characters can use "Lift" and    |
 |         "Throw". (Monsters can't do it).                                 |
 |         By making good use of these commands you can extend your attack  |
 |         range.                                                           |
 |         This is very helpful in some maps, so don't forget it.           |
 |         There are other uses for these commands besides covering ground  |
 |         like holding an enemy so he/she can't move, saving injured allies|
 |         from danger, etc.                                                |
 |         By the way, Prinnies will explode when they're thrown. So handle |
 |         them with care.                                                  |
 |                                                                          |
 |Prinny : Dood!?                                                           |
 |         You gotta be kidding!                                            |

Laharl : Geo panels...interesting. These are geographical features that are
         attuned to the elements of the universe.
         Crystallization of those elements results in "Geo Symbols", like the
         one right there.

Etna   : ...Well, that doesn't explain anything. So let me clarify a few things.


(.)------------------------------------------------------------------------(.)
 |                                                                          |
 |< T U T O R I A L :   G E O   E F F E C T S >                             |
 |                                                                          |
 |Let me explain "Geo Effects", a system which will heavily influence battle|
 |                                                                          |
 |Take a good look at the coloured panels on the area map.                  |
 |                                                                          |
 |Notice that "Enemy Boost + 50%" is displayed at the top of the screen.    |
 |                                                                          |
 |This means that when an enemy is on a blue panel, his/her ATK and DEF will|
 |be powered up by 50%.                                                     |
 |                                                                          |
 |This is not good for you, so it's wise to get rid of this effect.         |
 |                                                                          |
 |You might be wondering, "Where does it come from in the first place?"     |
 |                                                                          |
 |Why lookie here! I just found an object labelled "Enemy Boost" on this    |
 |blue panel! This guys the culprit!                                        |
 |                                                                          |
 |(Laharl : How obvious was that?)                                          |
 |                                                                          |
 |This object is called a "Geo Symbol" and as long as it's on a coloured    |
 |panel, all panels of the same colour will be affected. Let's toss it      |
 |somewhere.                                                                |
 |                                                                          |
 |The effect "Enemy Boost" is no longer on any of the blue panels.          |
 |                                                                          |
 |But... Huh? The Geo Symbol is now affecting the red panels. That doesn't  |
 |change much. Hmmmmm.                                                      |
 |                                                                          |
 |Let's just destroy it, then.                                              |
 |                                                                          |
 |...Oh, before we do that, do you see "To Blue" displayed in the           |
 |Geo Symbol's status window? Remember that.                                |
 |                                                                          |
 |Now, it's time to attack. Go ahead, Prince.                               |
 |                                                                          |
 |Huh? The red panels are now Blue. Remember the "To Blue" in the status    |
 |window? This is what it was referring to.                                 |
 |                                                                          |
 |Destroying a blue Geo Symbol will turn all panels, which are the same     |
 |colour as the one it was on, blue.                                        |
 |                                                                          |
 |Damage will be dealt to anyone standing on one of those panels at the     |
 |time, so be sure to take that into consideration. No damage will be       |
 |dealt if you destroy a blue Geo Symbol on a blue panel. (No panels        |
 |will change colour either.)                                               |
 |                                                                          |
 |You can build up your Bonus gauge by changing colour of the Geo panels.   |
 |If you are able to use what you've learned to destroy all the Geo Panels, |
 |then you will recieve a Panel Termination Bonus.                          |
 |                                                                          |
 |All this relates to a term I used before, Geo Effects.                    |
 |                                                                          |
(.)------------------------------------------------------------------------(.)

Laharl : That's pretty complicated.

Etna   : You're right, it is.
         It might be a good idea to start off by destroying only the harmful
         Geo symbols. Nullifying all the panels is for experts who understand
         the concept of Geo Effects completely, and you're not one of them.

Laharl : What'd you say?!

Etna   : Not all Geo symbols have negative effects. When you get the chance, you
         should try to take advantage of useful ones.
         Lastly, press SELECT button to turn the Geo panel display ON/OFF.

NOTE: When you replay the stage, the Exp + 50% will be removed.
Thanks to tony fu, for reminding me.

It is really the most easiest one. Just make one of your character (Laharl would
be the best), destroy the Blue Geo Symbol on the right.

There'll be a big combo chain and the stage clears.

Laharl : ...Hm. I'm starting to get the hang of things again.

Etna   : Okay then, are you ready to request some allies at the Dark Assembly?
         There you'll be able to create characters who will become your loyal 
         pupils.

Laharl : Loyal pupils...
         That does not sound like a bad idea. Alright, let's go!

So lets get started. Talk to Pleinair and select Summon Assembly. If you have
at least 10 Mana, create a character. Or else its better to gain more Mana by
defeating enemies by replaying the Geo Effects stage, because if you have less 
than 10 Mana, you can create only a Good-for-nothing.

When you have enough mana, create a character.

BUT NEVER PUT THE CHARCTER AS GOOD FOR NOTHING!!!

In my view its better to create a Warrior or a Brawler first.
I created a Brawler first. Then level him up by playing Geo Effects.

After that you can create a Cleric.

Also you can make Laharl take up the Promotion Exam if he's at atleast Lvl.4.
It would easily make him go up to Lvl.5 or Lvl.6.

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

+-------------+
|HEAL AND SAVE|
+-------------+

Equip your characters with the weapons you may have got from the bonus gauge.
Or else you may also want to buy some cool new weapon for your newly 
created Warrior. It would be better to give him a nice sword.

Also give Etna a good Spear (Buy it, it's worth it).

Then talk to the Dimensional Gatekeeper and she'll say that Vyer's Castle has
been added to the list of areas.

But in my view it would be better to level up before playing that level. Its
"NOT" absolutely necessary...But it would be "better" to level up.

The easiest way to win this is by using the Geo Effects concept.

             ___ ___ 
            |   |   |
            |___|___|   B = Blue Geo Symbol
            | B |   |   Y = Yellow Geo Symbol
            |___|___|
            |   | Y |
            |___|___|

Just move your character (humanoid) above the Blue Geo Symbol. MAke him lift it
and make him Throw it beside the Yellow Geo Symbol on the Red Geo Panel.

Then destroy the Blue Geo Symbol and wait and watch. A big Combo occurs and
five of your enemies automatically die.

OR ELSE,

Destroy the Yellow Geo Symbol and place the Blue Geo Symbol on the Geo panel.
It will rack up experience bonus when you defeat the enemies.

Take out the first 4 ghosts in front of you, in the first turn. Then, put your 2
most powerful characters on the Yellow Geo panels and place your other
characters beside them to make Team Attacks.

I would recommend you to put Laharl and Etna/Your created Warrior. I had put
Laharl and my Warrior. I had levelled him up very much in the Geo Panel stage.

Then you can easily defeat the enemies who come at you 'cause you have 
Attacks+1 and DEF+50. They "won't" be able to damage you much and you "will" be
able to damage them much. Isn't it coool!???

Thus eventually you can clear the stage.

Take care of the first two boggarts in the first turn. They are more powerful
than the ghosts, even though they look like the ghosts. Do not damage the
Geo symbols. Place your characters in the water, since they have recovery 20%
in the water. Kill the ghost in the water. He IS very strong, since he has a 
very good equipment: Muscle Brawn, Bulletproof Vest and Protector. More over
there is Recovery 20% also, in the water.

So take your best characters to kill the ghost. Then end your turn. Make sure 
that your weak characters are not nearer to the archers. In your second turn,
take care of the two archers with Laharl and another strong character. The
archers SHOULD be killed in this turn. 

Then kill the warrior as he approaches you. And also kill the Red Mage, if
it approaches you, or take care of it in the next turn.

Thus, this stage can be cleared. I must confess this is not a very easy stage 
compared to the previous ones. So you have to level if you aren't able to
clear it.

NOTE:
After you beat this stage, the recover 20% will be replaced with 
damage 20% and the ghost in the water will be additionally equipped with a 
crab pincer.

Etna   : Vyers?
         Isn't he the demon that's been knocking off competition for the

         Such wonderful intuition...
         Well played, son of Krichevskoy.

NOTE: 

Thanks to kaler_morris@yahoo.com for this !

"If you beat the game with any ending (Fastest is losing to your first fight
with Mid-Boss), you can go to New Game + and talk to Pleinair. Choose the blank
option and she joins your party at level 1 with an A in Guns. Another thing is
when you play New Game +, there is a commentary from a Prinny throughout all
the cutscenes of the entire game.

She levels up fast and can really do some damage. She gets all the gun skills,
and Usagi Drop, which attacks anywhere in her range with a + formation.
She is the biggest god damn boss killer in the game because of her 150% speed
aptitude and 120% hit aptitude. Due to the 150% speed, if you get her the right
equips and level her high enough, she could dodge all of enemy's attacks."


So, I advise you to get defeated in the mid-boss battle! Then as said above
make Plenair join your team. Then repeat the whole game again till this stage.
You can avoid the first two tutorials. So you have to only complete, Geo effects
and the Vyers castle. It would not be tough as your characters will be in the
same level as they were, when they got defeated.

My characters were at the following levels.

Laharl----Lvl.8,
Warrior---Lvl.6,
Etna------Lvl.6,
Prinnies--Lvl.5 each,
Brawler---Lvl.3,
Warrior---Lvl.3,
Cleric----Lvl.2.

First of all take care of the boggart on your right. Then make Laharl destroy
the Geo Symbols placed in a row on the left with his Blade Rush. And make sure
none of your charcters go near the Green Mage or the Archer. Whatever level
your characters may be in they wont stand a chance against them. They have the
power of Geo Panels.

Once Laharl destroys the Geo Symbols, you can easily defeat the enemies using
the special attacks of your characters and also the normal attacks, of course.

Then go against Vyers. And kill him with your specials.

         I have underestimated your skill.
         I took you for but a child.
         But, that was an error in judgement...
         I am too kind-hearted.

Laharl : Liar.
         You were serious just now.

Etna   : How pathetic.
         Nothing's worse than a sore loser.

MidBoss: Ugh...!
         What repulsive little brats you are.
         I shall come to return the favor, so do not forget moi!!

Laharl : Alright, let's collect the spoils and head home.

Etna   : Uh... Prince, I need to use the restroom.

Prinny
Squad  : Master Etna ran away.
         ...Which means ...
         Dood, we're gonna hafta carry all this?
         We're Master Etna's vassals, not the Prince's...
          
Laharl : Etna's vassals are my vassals.
         And my vassals do what I say.
         Now, get to work.

Prinny
Squad  : Dooooooood...

Big Sis
Prinny : Now, now.
         It's only until the next red moon, right?

Prinny 
Squad  : ...I guess you're right, dood.
         I'll get to work.

Etna   : ...No, he doesn't suspect a thing.

????   : I see...
         But still, how did he survive after drinking that potion...?
         If he fully recovers, this will become a difficult task...

Etna   : Don't worry.
         If you leave it to me, the throne will be yours.

????   :Are you sure you can deliver on that promise?

Etna   : ...Yes
         Remember, in exchange...

????   : I know.
         When I reign supreme as the Overlord, I shall return it to you.

Etna   : ......

????   : Hmhmhm...

Laharl : Hey!

Etna   : Now, Etna will fulfill the late Prince's wish and succeed him to the

Laharl : I'm not dead.

Cute 
Angel   : Did you send for me, Master Lamington?

Seraph  : Yes, I did.
          Here, Flonne. Have a look.
          The flowers are in full bloom.

Flonne  : How beautiful!

Seraph  : ......

Flonne  : *giggle* I love these flowers.
          They are simple, yet so bright and lively...
          I want to be like these flowers...
 
Seraph  : ...Flonne, listen carefully to what I have to say.

Flonne  : Yes?

Seraph  : As Seraph, I have orders for you, Angel Trainee Flonne.
          Go to the Netherworld and assassinate the Overlord, King Krichovskoy.

Flonne  : Huh?

Flonne  : Well, I'm here... at the Overlord's Castle.
          ...I still wonder why Seraph picked me though.
          Master Vulcanus would have been a much better choice...
          Not only that, but an assassination...
          What is the Seraph thinking? 




[In Celestia]
------------

Steam
Angel   : Master Lamington!
          Master Lamington, are you here!?

Seraph  : Why all the ruckus, Vulcanus?
          You scared the birds away.

Vulcanus: Who cares about the birds...
          I have an important question!
          Is it true that you sent Flonne to assassinate King Krichevskoy!?

Seraph  : Yes, it is true.

Vulcanus: Wha, wha, wha!?
          What did you do that for!?
          King Krichevskoy is the ruler of that abominable, dirty, rotten 
          Netherworld!!  

Seraph  : ......

Vulcanus: If you want him assassinated, it would make more sense to send me!
          Instead you pick that Angel Trainee...
          You think too highly of her!
          I am very aggravated by this!

Seraph  : ...That is exactly why you are not fit for this task.
          Besides, this is something that only Flonne can accomplish...





[In the Overlord's castle]
-------------------------

Flonne  :Whoosh!

Flonne  : Nin nin nin!

Flonne  :Wumph!!
         Whew... Looks like I made it in without being seen.
         What do they call those guys in the human world?
         Oh, yes... "Ninjas"...I always wanted to be one.
         Maybe I have potential. Nin nin <3
         ...But still, is it alright for me to be doing this?
         The angels all say that demons are evil, but are they really?
         It doesn't seem fair to judge somebody based on rumors alone.
         Even if it's the Seraph's orders, I don't feel right assassinating 
         somebody I don't know.
         ...Does that mean it's alright to assassinate somebody I DO know? That
         seems wrong, too.
         Can't kill strangers... Hmmmm, can't kill acquaintances either... 
         ...which means... ohhhh...

Laharl : Who are you, and why are you in my room talking to yourself!?

Flonne : Kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhh!!

Laharl : Owww...! What the heck did you do that for!?

Flonne : Oh, I'm sorry. You scared me, so I accidentally...
         (...Huh? Is he a demon...?)
         (There are demons this young...? I didn't know that.)

Laharl : Hmph... So, who are you?

Flonne : Me?
         Nice to meet you. I'm an assassin.
         Whoops. I wasn't supposed to say that.

Laharl : ...You're pretty dense, aren't you?

Flonne : My! How rude, calling somebody you just met dense!

Laharl : I think that an assassin who tries to kill someone in his sleep is a 
         lot ruder.
 
Flonne : ...You're right. I apologize.

Laharl : (...Is she really an assassin?)

Flonne : It looks like I failed this time, so I guess I'll be leaving now.
         I'll be back again. Please take care.

Laharl : H, Hey! Wait!
         Someone! Get in here, now!!

Etna   : Why are you yelling at this time of night? Ohhh, did you have a 
         nightmare?

Laharl : No, you fool! An assassin has infiltrated the castle!

Etna   : Huh?

Laharl : What happened to the Prinnies that were supposed to be on patrol!?

Etna   : They've partied themselves to sleep.

Laharl : Those idiots...!!
         I'm gonna smack 'em! Wake them up, now!!
         We've got an assassin to track down!!


Then at last you gain control of Laharl. Head out of that room.
Talk to the vassals and other people for some information.


Goleck : Have you saved yet?

Etna   : Huh? Come to think of it...
         Prince, have we saved yet?

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

Manty  : It's a bit noisy. Is there some sort of party? Party hardy!

Laharl : ...Why are all my vassals like this?

Etna   : Ever take a look in the mirror?

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

Dratti : Prince, weren't you assassinated?

Laharl : Stop killing me in your head!


In the next room,


Gargo  : I heard about the assassin.
         Congratulations! Assassination attempts mean that you're a 
         full-fledged demon.

Laharl : ...Am I supposed to be happy?

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

Ghoss  : Prince, have you visited the Dark Assembly?
         You need to milk the system for all it's worth to have an edge in 
         battle.

Laharl : Now is not the time...

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

Zommie : If you're looking for the assassin, I saw her walk by here. 
         I think she used the Dimensional Gate to escape.

Laharl : ...If you saw all this, why didn't you chase after her?

Zommie : That would require effort on my part.

----------------------------
Talk to the Dimensional Gate keeper.

D.Gate
Keeper : Ah, Prince. An unfamiliar girl was just here to use the Dimensional
         Gate. 

Laharl : Where'd she go!?

D.Gate
Keeper : She wanted to go someplace where nobody could find her,
         so I sent her to the "Frozen River".

Etna   : Um, doesn't revealing that information defeat the entire purpose of her
         escaping?

Then get going to the Frozen river after SAVING!!

Cleric   : Lvl.2
Brawler  : Lvl.4
Red Skull: Lvl.3
Battler  : Lvl.3

The enemies are weak to fire.

First have Laharl thrown to the right of the two archers on the mountain,
by Etna. You can see that on the right of the map, there are two pieces of land
which are higher than the usual.

Make Etna stand on the highest position and Laharl on the next highest position
and throw Laharl using Etna onto the mountain.
Then use Laharl's Hurricane slash on the nearest archer and kill her. In the
next turn, kill the other archer too.

Then make your other characters get a good stand and kill the other enemies 
eventually. Use laharl in the next turn to kill the Cleric. Also take care 
of the isolated zombie on the left.

Your characters can level in this stage.

Firstly kill the first three zombie group by Laharl's Blazing knuckle.

Then in your next turns throw your warriors or mages to the ones on the top
and kill them. At the same time take care of the ones on the right.

Let the ones on the top-right come to you or you can yourself go to them
and kill them. 

Its a really easy stage.

Laharl : You can't escape!
         I am proud to say that I'm the most persistent demon in all the 
         Netherworld!

Flonne : Is that so?      
         Wow...That's really something.

Laharl : ...Are you trying to make a fool of me?

Etna   : No, I think that's the way she is.

Flonne : *giggle* Now, it's my turn to show off a little.
         But, I'll have to use the item the Seraph gave me, so I can only do it 
         once.
         Are you ready?
         Here I go!

Etna   : Prince...
         I think we're playing by her rules.

Flonne : Durian Dragon Dranyago!
         Dragon, come forth!!

Dragon : Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!

Etna   : ...Prince, we have to fight THIS?

Laharl : We don't have much choice, do we?

NOTE:

When you replay this stage, the dragon is replaced by Golem and Flonne will
be removed.


My Team:

Laharl   : Lvl.9.
Etna     : Lvl.6.
Warrior  : Lvl.7.
Prinnys  : Lvl.6, 5, 6.
Cleric   : Lvl.3.
Brawler  : Lvl.6.
Red Skull: Lvl.4.         
Battler  : Lvl.5.
Rogue    : Lvl.1.
Scout    : Lvl.1.


Just take out the Imps and the Gremlins as fast as you can. But beware of their
specials. Then kill the Angel (Boss).

At last, concentrate on the Dragon. Team up on it and kill it. It has very
high Hp and it can pose a threat to you. So, be careful with it.

If needed level up and attempt this stage.

Flonne : Wow...You defeated my Dragon.

Laharl : Hmhmhm...
         You've caused a lot of trouble for me.
         I don't know who hired you, but I'll make you regret the day you tried
         to assassinate the great Laharl!

Flonne : Uh... Excuse me, but...
         Why would I want to assassinate you?

Laharl : Huh?

Flonne : I am Angel Trainee Flonne.
         I am here by the order of the Seraph to assassinate the Overlord,
         Ling Krichevskoy.

Laharl : ...You're here to kill my old man?

Flonne : Your old man...?
         That means... you're the King's son?

Etna   : Doesn't anyone in Celestia read the newspaper?

Flonne : ...?

Laharl : ...You came all the way from Celestia for nothing.
         My old man died 2 years ago.

Flonne : "(Gasp)"
         *sniff* ...I'm sorry...

Laharl : H, Hey!
         Why are you crying?

Flonne : Your father passed away, right...?
         You'll never see him again...
         When I think about that, it makes me sad...

Laharl : Huh?
         Are you crazy!?
         You came here to assassinate him, right?
         Why should you be sad?

Flonne : Are you not sad?

Laharl : Me?
         I don't have that emotion.

Flonne : That's not true.
         When you lose someone or something important to you,
         you cry, don't you?
         Your heart aches, doesn't it?

Laharl : Hmph...
         I don't understand a word you're saying.

Flonne : How come?

Laharl : How come?
         Because I'm a demon, of course!

Flonne : Demons don't know sadness?

Laharl : E, Exactly! I've never experienced such an emotion in my entire life!

Flonne : If that's true, then does that mean demons don't know love, either?
         Sadness is only possible because of love.

Laharl : You're right.
         Demons have no love either!

Flonne : That's...
         That's just... too sad...

Laharl : (She sounds just like my mother.)
         (How stupid! Love...?)
         (What good is it? What's the point in having it?)
         (Love is the reason Mother is dead!)
         (I don't believe... I'll never believe in love!!)

Flonne : (If demons really don't know love, then it's my duty as a Celestian to
         explore the matter.)
         (I was ordered to assassinate the Overlord, but this must be a sign
         from the heavens.)
         (It has to be!)
         (Whether demons are pure evil or not... If they really don't feel 
         love... I will bear witness to the truth!)

Laharl : What's love good for!? I don't need it...
         Demons like me don't need that kind of crap!

Flonne : If that is true, then demons are a real threat to Celestia.
         Since I can't complete my mission, I have decided that my new goal is 
         to learn the true nature of demons.
         I must know for certain whether or not demons are capable of love.
         And if necessary...
         I will carry out my original mission with a new target!

Laharl : Hmhmhm...
         Hmhmhm!!
         Haaahahahaha!!
         Alright! Be my guest!
         I shall burn a true vision of horror into that empty head of yours!

Angel Trainee Flonne joined your party!

Etna   : *sigh*
         Prince, what are you doing recruiting an assassin... and an angel 
         at that...?
         (...But, this might avert his attention from me.)
         (*giggle* Perfect thing <3)

         evil ways.

Flonne : N, Nefarious angel?

Etna   : But, can an old dog learn new tricks!?
         Flonne suddenly reverts to a killing machine, slaughtering a crowd of
         innocent demons!

Flonne : K, Killing machine!?

Etna   : Finally, she transforms into a space monster! Could this be the end of

Laharl : I get that part. 
         Now, explain to me why I have to pay YOUR vassals' salary.

Etna   : My vassals are your vassals, right?
         Then, it's only natural that you sign their paychecks.

Laharl : Ugh... I can't argue with that...
         ...Fine. But, it's not comin' outta my pocket. 

Etna   : Huh? I thought you had plenty of money. 

Laharl : That's my allowance! No one's touching it!

Etna   : Stingy...

Laharl : Shut up! ...So, who's the richest guy around here?
         We'll just loot his place!!

Flonne : ...Is he always like this?

Etna   : Yep, always.

Flonne : I've never met anybody like that in Celestia.

Etna   : I'd be amazed if you did.
         But, you won't last long in the Netherworld if something like this 
         surprises you.

Talk to everyone in the castle for some news and humour...

Goleck : Why are the folks up in Celestia sending an assassin here now?
         There hasn't been any interaction between us and them for thousands of
         years...

Laharl : Angels hating demons is old news. But, this may be the start of 
         something big.
         Things could get interesting. Hmhmhm...

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

Manty  : Where is the assassin? I'll take him on.

Flonne : Good day. I am Angel Trainee Flonne, the assassin dispatched from
        Celestia. Pleased to meet you.

Manty  : Oh, nice to meet you too...
         Prince, you sure this is the assassin?

Laharl : ...Don't ask.

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

Dratti : If you don't have money, steal it!
         It's so cool that "playing dirty" is permitted in the Netherworld.

Flonne : I don't think that anyone gave permission...

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

Gargo: The assassin was an angel?
       What is the world coming to?

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

Ghoss : Prince, have you been to the Item World?
        If you want to level up an item, you must travel deeper into the dungeon
        of the Item World.
        To power up an item, you must defeat the Residents known as 
        "Specialists" and have them submit to you.
        There are other things you should know, so ask the guide to the Item
        World.

Etna  : Wow! Such friendly advice coming from a demon!

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

Zommie: It's not so great to be rich, knowing how the Prince operates.

Flonne: I agree.

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

Then you can do your grinding if you want. Or go to Dark Assembly and create
a character or take up promotion...
Or even you can buy some cool weapons and items etc.

Then talk to the Dimensional Gatekeeper.

D.Gate
Keeper : I have located the richest demon in the vicinity. But
         due to a barrier, I cannot open a gate there.

Laharl : So, what can we do?

D.Gate
Keeper : You need a key.

Laharl : A key...?

D.Gate
Keeper : Yes. In order to open a closed gate, you must fulfill a specific
         condition. The condition for this gate is that you must be equipped
         with an item that is level 10 or higher.

Etna   : The Prince has to equip it?

Flonne : This gate key stuff is pretty picky.

D.Gate
Keeper : You must enter the Item World in order to level up an item. Let me
         warn you that the Item World for a highly ranked item has many strong
         enemies. My advice is to start with a common sword to avoid getting
         in over your head. Please be careful, Prince.

YOU RECEIVED GENCY'S EXIT!

 |By using this item, you can return to the Overlord's castle from the Item |  
 |world.                                                                    |

 |In addition, you can return to where you left off at a later date.        |
 |                                                                          |

So go to the item world. Go at least 10 floors and beat the 10th floor.
Then you can choose to go back to the castle or continue. You can continue if
you want, but its not necessary.

Now equip the levelled item to Laharl and Talk to Dimensional Gate Keeper.

D.Gate
Keeper :  Prince! I see that you have a level 10+ item equipped.
          I will now add "Dinero Palace" to the list of available areas. Once a
          gate is open, it will remain open. You no longer need to equip
          an item of level 10 or higher.

Laharl : Dinero Palace... Sounds rich to me.

Etna   : *giggle* I can't wait to see what's there<3

Prinny

First take out the three Brawlers in front of you, carefully. They may counter.
In the next turn be very careful with the Pugilist and the other two Brawlers.
Eventually you can clear this stage.

Laharl : What the...!? These are all from the castle.
 
Etna   : It was probably taken when the King died.

Laharl : ...So, this place belongs to an ex-vassal.
         Hmhmhm...This'll be fun!!
         Hey, Prinnies! This is for your paychecks! You better work hard!!

Prinny
 Squad : Aye aye, dood!

Flonne : Hmmmmmm.
         Netherworld Prinnies are a lot different than Celestial Prinnies...
         In Celestia, Prinnies, cook, clean, and do the laundry.

Etna   : But they're all the same on the inside.

Flonne : On the inside? What do you mean?

Etna   : You're an angel, and you don't know these things?
         Prinnies have human soul inside them.
         Most of 'em were pretty worthless in their past lives, like murderers
         or thieves.
         They work as Prinnies in the Netherworld and Celestia to atone for
         their sins.
         In Celestia, they do good deeds for free.
         In the Netherworld, they do ultra-hard labor for less than minimum wage
         Once they've redeemed themselves or saved enough money, they can be
         reincarnated.
         I don't know all the details, but that's the basic idea.

Flonne : I see.
         But, why do they work for money in the Netherworld?

Etna   : You've never heard of the saying, "money makes the Netherworld
         go round"?

Flonne : ...? I don't get it. Is money that important?

Etna   : Of course it is! Geez, you Celestians...
         Look, there's nothin' more important than money, in this world or any
         other!

Flonne : Of course there is! Love and friendship and...

Etna   : Huh?

         Is your head full of flowers or something?

You'll notice a new type of Geo Effect in this stage, "No Entry".
Lets learn about it soon.

First of all take out the first two Pugilists. Then in the next turn, let the
other two come to you and kill 'em off.

Now comes the No Entry Geo Panels' use, if you have long range characters.
Neither you nor your enemies can cross that panels unless you destroy the 
Geosymbol.

'Twas a disadvantage for 'Me' 'cause I dont have any long range characters
who can do a decent amount of damage.
 
But you can destroy the panel,and then go ahead and kill 'em.
The priest and the Manticore are very dangerous. Take care. 
Usually the Manticore comes at the end. So you needn't worry till the end.

Etna   : That's right. He was a magnificent Overlord.

Laharl : Hmph. Not even.
         I was ready to dethrone him myself, but he went and croaked on his own.

Etna   : Hey Prince, can I have it?

Laharl : Sure, go ahead.

Flonne : ...Come to think of it, how did he pass away?

Etna   : Choked on a black pretzel.

Flonne : ...Huh?
         The Overlord of the Netherworld died by choking on a pretzel!?

Etna   : Well, it happened... So I guess anything's possible.

Flonne : *sigh* And this was the person I was ordered to assassinate...?

OH! MY... !!! Its really a FLASHY PASSAGE!!
 
Soo many Brawlers... But never mind it... Even if you mind it, they'll be there
where they were, unless you were clever enough to finish 'em off.

Just level up, if you can't kill the enemies off. Keep killing the enemies
one by one. Beware of the Lvl.6 Brawler though. 

At the end go over to the Pugilists and kill them.

WHAT I DID:
-----------
In the first turn I took care of the right hand three Brawlers with my Skull
and Laharl. I thought of finishing off the left three Bawlers also, but they
wouldn't die.
In the next turn, I killed about five more Brawlers. So, only 7 more were left.
And 4 more Pugilists at the top.
By the fifth turn, I killed all of them except the 4 Pugilists on the top.
I was left only with Laharl, Etna and a Warrior.
Then somehow, I killed the other four Pugilists. 

So, if you try like this, it'll be ok. Its not really necessary to do exactly
like this. Its just a method.

The wall of meat does not move.

Just use your Mages or Skulls at the line of Brawlers (Wall of Meat). In the
next turn the Pugilists will come at you. So take good care of them and try
to kill them as early as possible.

Then gang up on the Boss and kill him. It'll not be very difficult.

Flonne    : You can call me whatever you want. But, why is it that you refuse to
            believe in love?
            You reject it because you're afraid of it! Isn't that right?

Etna   : Huh? You're not going to finish him?

Laharl : It wouldn't make me any richer.
         Alright, start taking the good stuff!
         ...But, make sure you leave some behind for them.
 
Flonne : Laharl...

Laharl : Hmph...

Hoggmeiser was deeply moved by Laharl's kind gesture...and he joined your
party withour your consent!

You also received 5000 HL!


Flonne: Master Lamington, I finally understand.
        Those words you spoke to me...

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


Flonne : Master Lamington.

Seraph : What is it, Flonne?

Flonne : The angels told me that the demons are all evil. Is that true?

Seraph : What do you think?

Flonne : Hmmmm... I've never met one, so I don't know.

Seraph : Haha...
         Listen carefully, Flonne. There is no such thing as absolute evil or
         absolute good.
         The angels assume that they are good and the demons are evil. That is
         an unfortunate misconception.
         Demons do have love. The angels... and in fact, most demons, just do 
         not realize it.
         If we can guide them... If we can make them see, then one day...

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


Flonne : Master Lamington, I will accompany Laharl for a little while longer.
         He is selfish, self-centered, and stubborn... And those aren't his only
         shortcomings.
         But I have discovered a hint of kindness in his heart.
         It may be small right now...
         ...But I have great hope that he will learn to love.
         So, Master Lamington... 
         ...please forgive my digression.

Etna   : What's wrong, Flonne? You look tired.

Flonne : Y, Yes...
         The Seraph gave that pendant to me before I came to the Netherworld...
         An Angel Trainee like me cannot stay in the Netherworld very long
         without that pendant...
         At this rate, I will lose all of my energy, and eventually die...

Etna   : Hmmmm, is that so? Well, that sucks.
         Prince, whatcha gonna do?

Laharl : Like I should care.
         She came to assassinate my old man in the first place.
 
Etna   : That's our Prince. Even capable of turning his back on such a helpless
         little girl.

Laharl : Of, Of course...

Flonne : L, Laharl...

Laharl : W, What? It's the truth, isn't it?

Flonne : Laharl...

Flonne : If you can find my pendant, I will give you something good.

Laharl : "Something good", you say?
        Hmph. If I wanted it, I'd just steal it from you.

Flonne : You would use violence on weak little me?

Laharl : Give it up, already! I'm a demon!
         It doesn't matter how you are! Even if you were old, maimed, or 
         diseased!

Flonne : ...Fine.
         Then, my gift will never be yours...

Laharl : ...What's that supposed to mean?

Flonne : ......

Laharl : Tell me!!

Flonne : ......

Laharl : ...Are you trying to provoke me?
         ......
         Hmph... Fine. I've got some time to kill.

Flonne : Laharl...

Laharl : But! Let me make one thing clear. I'm not doing this for your sake!
         And when I find the pendant, that "something good" is mine!

Flonne : Thank you, Laharl.

Laharl : You're an angel! You shouldn't be thanking demons.
         I do what I want, when I want!
         Remember that! Hmph!!

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

So that is your aim in this episode. Find the pendant.

Talk to all the people in the castle.

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

Goleck : I overheard the Prinnies talking about a "2nd Cycle". What does that
         mean?

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

Manty  : Us monster-type demons can only equip monster-type weapons.
         Isn't that just unfair?

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

Dratti : Are you utilizing Team Attacks?

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

Gargo  : When bribing Senators, it's best to bribe the highest level Senator
         possible.
         The higher their level, the more influence they have.

Etna   : So basically, money is power, huh?

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

Ghoss  : Now that you mention it, I did see a suspicious man prowling around 
         last night.

Laharl : ...And what did you do?

Ghoss  : Watched quietly from a distance, of course.

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

Zommie: Some middle-aged man went to the "Blazing Core" recently. 
Zommie: Is he a tourist?

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

After equiping and levelling (if you need), go and talk to the Dimensional
Gatekeeper.

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

D.Gate
Keeper : Prince, this is a serious matter.

Laharl : What's wrong?

D.Gate
Keeper : Someone opened a gate to the "Blazing Core" without me
         knowing. Who could have done this...?

Laharl : ...Maybe he knows where that pendant is.
         Alright! I shall find him and make him confess everything!


So get to the Blazing core.

Etna   : It's so hot here!! What's with this place!?
         This is too much for me. I'm outta here.

Laharl : Wait. Look at this.

Etna   : A feather...?

Flonne : ------!! Let me see!

Etna   : What's so special about it?

Flonne : ...This is an angel feather.

Laharl : It's not yours, is it?

Flonne : No... It's size... and the aura it radiates... They are both superior
         to mine.
         This feather belongs to a high-level angel...

Laharl : Hmph, no wonder this place reeks of goodness.

Flonne : But, I came to the Netherworld under the Seraph's secret orders.
         Why would another angel be here...?

Etna   : Prince, you think that angel stole Flonne's pendant?

Laharl : Hmmm. I'm surprised that a Love Freak like you would have enemies.

Flonne : That is not possible! An angel would never steal my pendant...

Laharl : But, only angels know about the pendant, right?


Flonne : W, Well...

Laharl : Ah... Forget it. We still have to find it, regardless.
         I don't care what kind of trouble those Celestians stir up for 
         themselves.

Flonne : ......

Battler   : Lvl.6.
Rogue     : Lvl.3.
Scout     : Lvl.3.
Flonne    : Lvl.5.
Hoggmeiser: Lvl.12

So this is basically a good place for levelling up. The EXP +100 panels are 
really GREAT!!!

Take care of the pumpkins in 1-2 turns. Its better to kill them while they
are on the Exp+100 only.

The Decoys and the Killer Armor start coming towards you as you end your
first turn. Be very careful of the Killer Armor and also the decoys.
Their specials can be VERY dangerous.


NOTE: YOU CAN ALWAYS REPLAY THAT STAGE FOR LEVELLING UP.

Etna   : I wanna go home. Why is it so hot?
         Now, I'm all sweaty.
         Prince, in this heat, Flonne's gonna shrivel up before we find the 
         pendant.

Flonne : Huh? I'm fine.

Etna   : How come?
         I'm gonna kill you if you say that angels don't sweat or have to go to
         the bathroom.

Flonne : N, No. The medicine that a Prinny gave me seems to be helping.

Etna   : Huh? One of 'em gave you medicine?
         Prinnies aren't that nice. 
         ...You must be hallucinating.

Flonne : No, it's true! I feel much better now.

Etna   : Okay, which one of 'em was it, then?

Flonne : Ummmm...
         ...They all look the same.

There is no special strategy for this stage. Just take out the decoys and the
pumpkins with whatever strong charcters you have. Then deal with the Killer
Armor and the other two pumpkins. Here, Flonne's power of love, became very
useful for me.

Be very careful with the two Killer Armors. Try to use Hoggmeiser's spinning
slash and other's special powers. They come very handy. If you cant defeat
them, then level up in the first stage of this map and return.

Flonne : Future reference?

Laharl : Yeah. I may end up fighting him one day.
         I'm looking for your pendant. The least you could do is tell me.

Flonne : Well, I guess it's okay.

Etna   : No, it's not.

Flonne : Well... Master Lamington, the Seraph, is a very kind person.
         He loves flowers and poems.

Laharl : Now, wait a second... I only wanna hear about his weak points...

Etna   : Hmmmm, so you look up to the Seraph?

Flonne : Yes, of course. Is there someone that you look up to?

Etna   : Me? The late King.

Laharl : What!? Then you don't look up to ME?

Etna   : Nope.

Laharl : Why you...! You call yourself a vassal!?

Etna   : Yeah... Sorta.

Laharl : ...! Someone shoudl teach you some manners...

Just lift Laharl and move him to the Geo Symbol. Then make him lift it, and
throw it on the Geo panels.

Then just keep on ending your turn and watch the effect. Slowly, the enemies
get damaged and they eventually die. By eigth turn they all died for me.
So, it takes about 5-6 turns for them to die.

NOTE: After you beat this stage, the damage 20% symbol is removed. :(

Mid-Boss: Oooooooohhh, that hurt...
          Who threw this? That was dangerous.

Mid-Boss: Hmmm? This is a beautiful pendant.
          It must be a gift from the heavens, a reward for my good behavior.
          I thank you, o god...

Laharl  : Moron. What demon thanks a god?

Mid-Boss: Huh...? Who just called moi a moron!?

Laharl  : Me.

Mid-Boss: Oh, what a lucky day, indeed. To be able to confront my rival once
          again!

Laharl  : ...Wait a second. Since when did I become your rival?

Etna    : Hey, it's Mid-Boss. Why're you still pestering us? We beat you already
          remember?
Mid-Boss: You should never assume that I am dead! Besides, my name is the Dark

Flonne  : Ah! My pendant!

Mid-Boss: Hmmm? What a lovely mademoiselle. You recognize this pendant?

Flonne  : Please, Mr. Mid-Boss! May I have the pendant? It's mine!

Mid-Boss: Ugh! With all due respect, I prefer to be called the "Dark Adonis"...

Flonne  : I need it! I beg of you!

Mid-Boss: I, I cannot do that, even at the request of someone so lovely.
          I found this pendant.
          Therefore... It belongs to moi!

Etna    : Man... He's as low as the Prince.

Laharl  : Shut up! Don't put me on the same level as him!

Flonne  : Oh, my! The pendant will punish those with a wicked heart.
          If you don't let go soon... you'll...!

Flonne  : ...Huh?

Laharl  :What's the deal here? Isn't he supposed to be punished?

Flonne  : Y, Yes, he should be... That's strange. Is it broken?

Mid-Boss: Haaahahahaha!!
          Unfortunate, is it not? The heavens would never punish such a pure
          heart as mine!
          And to match such a beautiful heart, I was graced with the name "Dark
          Adonis"!

Laharl  : Enough. I told you, you're "Mid-Boss".

Mid-Boss: Haaahahahaha!! Say what you wish!
          But, do not foolishly think that I am an ordinary mid-boss.

Etna    : Hey! You just admitted that you're a mid-boss.

Mid-Boss: Quiet!! I shall crush you so that I never hear the name "Mid-Boss"
          again!!
          Since last I lost to you, I mastered an incomparable technique. I
          have trained arduously for this moment!!
          Now, prepare for your inevitable defeat!!

With Plenair nothing is impossible!!!
I beat this stage with only Laharl and Plenair. She is awesome!!!

If you didnt get Plenair in the First episode, then this is the chance
for you to get it.


Just use your special attacks and finish the Killer Armors, Mandrake and the 
nightmares quickly and then deal with the Mid-boss. Gang up on him and defeat
him.

          That's good to know.

Flonne  : Why did you do all that for the pendant?

          Just give me my reward!

Flonne  : ...?

Laharl  : Uh, do I have to spell it out?
          The reward! Give me the "something good" you promised me!

Flonne  : Oh, that.
          I already gave it to you.

Laharl  : What?

Flonne  : Put your hand to your heart.
          Can you feel it? The warmth inside your heart...
          You faced great danger to find this pendant.
          You pretend to be only evil, but there is definitely kindness in your
          heart.
          To give you the opportunity to realize that kindness...
          That is my reward for you.

Laharl  : ---------!!
          A, A, Are you insane!? How can you say something so crazy!?

Flonne  : Kindness is love. The day is near when you will awaken to love<3
          *giggles*

Laharl  : Unbelievable! I've been tricked by an angel!!
          Dammit! I'll remember this!!

Etna    : Deceiving the Prince, huh? Not bad at all.

Flonne  : Really?

Etna    : You look happy.

Flonne  : Yes, I am. I now know that there is love within Laharl's heart.
          And if there is love inside him, that means there is love in all
          demons.
          One day, angels and demons could be friends. I couldn't be happier.

Etna    : Boy, that theory is a bit out there. You really are a Love Freak.
          But, you're bound to be disappointed if you keep expecting things to
          turn out so cheery.
          Most demons would choke you from behind without a second thought.

Flonne  : Hmmmm. Are you like that, Etna?

Etna    : Maybe.
          You'll find out soon enough. *giggle*


Vulcanus: Damn that Flonne...! She managed to survive!
          She may be a tougher adversary than I first thought.
          It seems that she IS in fact manipulating the demons to do her
          bidding.
          I must return to Celestia and devise a new plan...
          Consider yourself lucky this time...
          But I, Vulcanus, shall emerge victorious in the end!!
          Got that!? Don't forget it, even if I don't make an appearance 
          for awhile!
          Promise me!!

Etna    : Introducing the Netherworld Baseball League's most notorious losers,
          the Rotten Peaches!!
          In their first game of the season, they'll face last year's champs,
          the Dark Durians!!

Mid-Boss: Their names are quite unique.

Etna    : One by one, the Rotten Peaches are losing their already shaky 
          confidence...
          ...at the hands of the merciless Dark Durian Nine!!

Mid-Boss: Let us all play fair now.

Etna    : Out of the shadows of the dugout, Etna, a mysterious pinch-hitter 
          appears!!
          Awakening the Rotten Peaches' true baseball spirit.
          Etna's soul burns brightly!!

Mid-Boss: You shouldn't play with fire.

Etna    : Next on Mighty Slugger Etna, Episode 5: The Miracle Full Base Hat

Etna   : Well, of course...

Etna   : B, B, But Prince... Look at this... Ahahaha, oh my god!!

Flonne : I didn't know you were into that kind of thing.

Laharl : W-W-W-W-W-W-W-W-What is this!?

Etna   : It's a humiliating photo of you.

Laharl : I can see that!!
         But, who the hell took it!?

Etna   : How should I know? By the way, something's written on the back.

Laharl : ...What?


Dear Prince Laharl,

An embarrassing photo of you is in my possession:
I await your arrival in Jotunheim. 

If you choose to decline my challenge,
copies of the photo will be scattered throughout the Netherworld.

"It is my wish to contend for overlordship in a fair, agreeable manner."


Laharl : Dammit!! "Fair, agreeable manner"...!? This is playing dirty!

Etna   : But, isn't that the demon way?

Laharl : True... But this crosses the line!!

Etna   : ...So? Are you going or not? It's definitely a trap.

Laharl : Of course I'm going!
         If this picture gets spread throughout the Netherworld, I'll be ruined!
         Whoever you are, you just wait!
         I'll char you and your paparazzi shots in the eternal flames of hell!

Talk to the Vassals in the castle.


Goleck: The "Supreme Overlord"... An Overlord who is more powerful than all
        others.
        But, they say that there is one who surpasses even him: "The Lord of
        Terror".

Laharl: Hmph... There is no such thing as someone stronger than the Overlord.
        That's just a legend.

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

Manty: Whoever sent that challenge must have a lot of confidence.

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

Dratti: From one thing to the next... It must be hard, Prince.

Laharl: If you think so, then lend me a hand.

Dratti: Hahaha, that's a good one.

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

Gargo: I'm actually a father of two<3

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

Ghoss: Ah, Prince. I heard about the embarrassing photos. 
       I never thought that a demon like you would be into that kinda stuff<3

Laharl: How could this be happening...? My life will be over if those pictures
        get out...!

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

Zommie: "Jotunheim" is a land so cold that even your blood freezes...
        Big deal, right? 

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

After equipping and saving your game, talk to the Dimensional Gate keeper.

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

D.Gate
Keeper : The location specified in the challenge was Jotunheim, correct?

Laharl : Why? Is something wrong?

D.Gate
Keeper : Well... The gate that leads there is being opened from
         the other side. It's as if someone were waiting for you, Prince... 

Laharl: Hmph. A confident foe, isn't he?
        Very well! This may be a trap, but I'll enjoy it anyway!

First of all as you observe the map, you'll see the Ally Damage 20% which is
very dangerous for us. So throw one of your charcters by a Brawler or anyone
else at the maximum distance, he can be thrown upwards (to the North).

Then move your character to the place before the Imp (before the Geo Symbol,
Ally Damage 20%). Then using that character, lift the Imp and throw it on the
Geo Symbol.

Next, destroy the ATK-50 and DEF+50 symbol, if you wish to. Otherwise, continue
with the map. But remember, your attacks will have very less Damage on the
enemies. Also, the enemies attacks wont most probably damage you as your
defence increases.

So kill the enemies, they are all very easy to kill with Laharl and Plenair.

Dont use Laharl in this stage, if you can. His status is reduced by 'bout half
in this stage. Otherwise all other thing is the same. Kill the imps first,
scouts do not attack, if you stay away from them. Ninja is a powerful 
enemy with mind-blowing counters. So try to do ranged attacks.

This map is really cool. Its completely invincible, except for a small square
at one corner of the map. So, I personally threw all the enemies into one,
i.e., I combined all the enemies and threw the final enemiy on the green 
geo panel.

Then I put two of my best characters, Laharl and Plenair on both sides of her,
so that she cant move from that place and killed her.

Final enemy was Lvl.112 and her HP was about 1450. She usually did about
500-600 damage and since we were on the invincibility panels, it had no 
effect at all.

The last shot was given by Plenair and she levelled up to 29, from 20.

          You seem to be working your way into quite a predicament. As your

Laharl  : Warn me...!?

Mid-Boss: Laharl!! Do not be fooled by appearances!

Etna    : Two years ago... when the King died, I followed your orders and
          poisoned the Prince...

Etna    : You don't get it, do you? I just told you that I've been waiting for
          this moment.
          I bought out the Prinnies you hired to watch over me a loooong time
          ago Comprende?
          You're just a stupid fool who fell for my trap, and the Prince was my 
          bait.

Laharl  : Hmph... Using me as bait... You're one ruthless girl.

Etna    : Oh Prince, don't flatter me so much. It's not like Flonne or Mid-Boss 
          were part of the plan.

Mid-Boss: Hmmmm... Women are scary.

Maderas : Ugh...!!

Etna    : From this day on, you're gonna pee in your pants every time you hear
          my name. You ready?<3

After you complete this stage, the Demon Sire is replaced by Cait Sith.

My Team:

Laharl    : Lvl.16. (Reincarnated)
Plenair   : Lvl.29.
Etna      : Lvl.11.
Warrior   : Lvl.11.
Prinnys   : Lvl.7, 6, 7.
Cleric    : Lvl.4.
Brawler   : Lvl.8.
Red Skull : Lvl.4.         
Battler   : Lvl.7.
Rogue     : Lvl.4.
Scout     : Lvl.5.
Flonne    : Lvl.8.
Hoggmeiser: Lvl.12.


If you want level in the previous stage. I have levelled Laharl to Lvl.24 and
Etna to Lvl.23. Luckily, they did a Team attack on the final blow.

This is fairly easy, if you sufficiently level up.

Maderas : Eeeeeep!! F-Forgive me!!
          Please, spare my life! I beg you!!

Etna    : What should I do?

Maderas : Forgive me, o Master Etna! Your strength, beauty, and intelligence are
          unsurpassed in all the Netherworld!

Etna    : Well, killing a loser like you would only dirty my hands, so I'll
          forgive you.
          ...You know what I want, right?

Maderas: Y-Yes!
         I will return Master Laharl's candid photos immediately, as well as
         your memory! I'll return everything!

Maderas will join your party !!!


Etna   : Phew... That settles that. Doesn't it, Prince?

Laharl : No, it doesn't!!
         You tried to poison me in my sleep... You used me as bait for your
         revenge... What kind of vassal are you!?

Flonne : B-But Laharl...

Laharl : ...But!
         But, I don't mind that side of you.
         A true demon is always full of ambition, and aims for the top.
         As King, I'll need a right-hand demon like you under my command.

Etna   : Prince...

Laharl : Listen up! I'm going to work you into the ground! You better be 
         prepared for it!

Etna   : Uh-uh. YOU better be prepared.
         I'll be watching your every move. If you don't prove yourself worthy of
         the throne...
         An accident may happen<3

Laharl : Hmph... You can take my place if that happens.

Etna   : *giggle* Don't worry, I will.

Flonne : ...That's strange.
         ...Laharl and Etna reconciled, despite all that's happened.
         I don't understand it, but I guess demons have their own way of 
         expressing love.
         *giggle* I'm really surprised.
         I have never experienced anything like this before in Celestia...

Mid-Boss: Hey, wait! Everyone! Are you not forgetting someone?

Laharl : Boyfriend? That's dumb.

"Dear Sirs and Madames,
I hope these dark days find you well.

However, I, Laharl, am deeply concerned with the state of the Netherworld.

I am well aware that unnecessary bloodshed is not your desire.

Therefore, I am writing to propose a formal challenge, an event with my 
father's title at stake - the title of Overlord.

The rules are simple.

On Curseday, in the Month of Adder, I shall journey to the Heart of Evil, 
carrying with me the official Deed.

The one who wrests the Deed from my hand shall be recognized as the new 
Overlord.

In the event that I reach my destination still in possession of the Deed, I
shall assume the position myself.

Sincerely,
Prince Laharl"



Laharl : Whaddya think? Excellent penmanship, huh?

Flonne : Y, Yes. But, according to the Netherworld calender, isn't today the
         designated day?

Laharl : That's right. I've ordered the Prinnies to spread copies of this letter
         all over the Netherworld.
         The demons aiming to become Overlord are probably lying in ambush right
         now.

Etna   : Ummmm, Prince? Is this offer open to anyone?

Laharl : Are you an idiot?
         Don't you get it? There's no Deed for the position of Overlord.

Etna   : Huh?

Laharl : This is a trap.
         Look at what's happened recently. I thought that I might as well get
         rid of anyone still planning to claim the throne.

Etna   : Oh, I see.

Laharl : And when I've defeated them all, I will be the unquestioned Overlord!
         Hmhmhm...
         Haaahahahaha!!

No vassals in your palace...!!

Oh! So, they have all gone to the challenge, waiting in ambush. But we're 
gonna make them repent by defeating them all. Right?!

So, get prepared, for a long fight. When ready, save and talk to the 
Dimensional Gatekeeper.




D.Gate
Keeper : Good morning, Prince.

Laharl : Morning. Uh... Is it me, or am I missing vassals?

D.Gate
Keeper : Do not worry. They are all waiting to ambush you at "Blair Forest", 
         Prince.

Laharl : ...You're not much better.

Laharl : Anyways, what are we going to do about these guys?

Laharl : There's not even room to walk.

Etna   : It looks like we'll have to take them on one by one.

Laharl : Oh, great... I can't wait to see what's after this.

Oh! This "IS" too much...
But never mind, you'll have to anyway...You are the overlord, isn't it?

So, lets take 'em out one by one...This seems to be the best tactics.

Take out Plenair, kill the first ghost. Then move her, to the front, bring out
Maderas and use his special attack Chaos fire on the enemies, which are in its
range. It'll summat reduce the enemies health, though not kill them, if you
dont level Maderas. But anyway, something is better than nothing. Isnt it?

You can also use Laharl's Overlord's Wrath. It'll just erase them all, whoever
comes in its range. Also use Plenair's Usagi Drop.

Always remember to put Plenair in the first place. She can dodge all the enemy
attacks easily.

Just remember to use the special attacks extensively.

I completed this stage in 7 turns.

*After you complete this stage, the Demon slayer will be replaced by the
two Rune Knights.


So, after the first stage, it surely seems simple, though not easy.
Laharl's Hurricane slash and Plenair's Bullet storm will help here.
She'll have a HP of around 1200. So, it'll not be easy. But you have handled
this much HP before, but on invincibility panels.
So, this is gonna be just more difficult than that. But not so difficult that
you would not be able to handle.

Prinny
Squad  : We know a head-on attack is suicide, dood.

Laharl : Hm? You have a plan, then?

Prinny
Squad  : That's right, dood!!
         Alright! Let's go, doods!!
         We challenge you to a game of baseball, dood!!

Laharl : Etna.

Etna   : Yes?

Laharl : Kill 'em.

Etna   : Certainly.

           Kid! Are you Krichevskoy's son!?

Laharl   : Who are you?

Demon    : Me!? I am the Overlord of an alternate Netherworld!

Laharl   : An alternate Netherworld?

Overlord : That's right! I tried taking over this world before, but Krichevskoy
           got in the way!
           Now that he's dead, I'll claim it for my own!
           You are just one of the Overlords that I will crush on my way to 
           becoming the "Supreme Overlord"!
           Puny boy! What you see before you represents only a fraction of my 
           power!

Laharl   : Well, that's really hard to tell, since I can only see part of you.

Etna     : Yep. You're just too big.

Overlord : ...Fine! If it's size you're concerned about, I can make
           adjustments...
           But, even so, a horrible death still awaits you!
           Feel my wrath!
           Here I go! Doppelgangerrrrrrrr!

Overlords: You see this? This is the famous Doppelganger spell!
           How do you like it? There are 10 Overlords now. You're speechless,
           aren't you!?

Laharl   : Tch...!

Flonne   : Don't worry! Splitting into 10 means that his love is divided
           10 ways!
           We cannot possibly lose to someone like that!

Etna     : Ohhh, Flonne's burning with determination! You like this stuff, don't

So...this surely seems to be a bit too much. So, lets lose here!!

Seems strange?! No, its not. Just lose in this battle and after the battle,

Laharl   : Ugh...! "His love is divided ten ways!" Yeah, sure... That was a BIG
           help, you loony angel!!

Flonne   : Hmmm, that's odd. Isn't the hero supposed to win?

Etna     : Ummmm... We're demons, not heroes.

Overlord : Mwahahahahaha!! Even if my power is divided, an Overlord is still an
           Overlord.
           It wouldn't matter how many puny boys like you there were, I'd crush
           them all!
           I thought the son of Krichevskoy would be a lot tougher, but I guess
           I was wrong!!

Laharl   : Dammit...!

Overlord : Die, punk! Say hello to Krichevskoy in hell!

?????    : Wait just a minute!

Laharl   : Y, You guys...!?

Overlord : W, Who are you!?

Zommie   : We are the loyal vassals of King Krichevskoy...

Ghoss    : You dare set foot in our world? We will defeat you in the name of the
           late King!!

Overlord : Hmmm...!!

Manty    : Prince! Let us handle this!

Gargo    : We've been waiting here in case our help was needed.

Etna     : Liars.
           You were here to ambush the Prince just like the others, isn't that 
           right?

Goleck   : Ah, ah, ahahahahaha! O-Of course not. Oh, come now.

Flonne   : ...Looks like you hit the nail on the head.

Laharl   : Why is it that I don't have any luck with vassals...?

Dratti   : Come, now. We were here to help you in your time of need, right?

Laharl   : Only because you were waiting to ambush me!

Overlord : Hey! Quit ignoring me!!
           I'll send you all to join Krichevskoy!
           Prepare yourselves!!

Zommie   : Hmph...! Don't underestimate us!
           We will defeat you in the name of Overlord Krichevskoy!!

So..now, you have 6 more friends, to help you. All about, 300~350. 
So, now, its gonna be easy...

Just bring out one of your characters, preferably Plenair, since she can avoid
the enemy attacks, and  place them at the back and end your turn and let the
vassals do the fighting.

About 5 overlords will be killed by the first turn. Repeat the same for the
second turn too. By the end of the second turn, the stage clears.

Zommie  : We'll be returning to the castle now. Take care, Prince.

Etna    : They're actually pretty strong...

Flonne  : "A wise falcon hides its talons". That saying fits perfectly.

Laharl  : I wish they would stop hiding their talons when it comes to working
          for me...

N O T E : 
-_-_-_-_-

If you have managed kiling the overlords, first time itself, the stage clears
asusual and the vassals don't come.
But it is very much improbable, for you to kill them, unless...

Flonne  : You call yourselves "Prism Rangers", but you only have 3 colors.

          transforms in front of the enemy!

*The prism ranger gets removed from the map, once its cleared.


You wont have much luck in this stage. The warp symbol makes this stage a hell.
Luck is a main factor for this stage. If you are lucky, you may fall in beside
the geo symbol and may destroy it. Else, just take out your strongest characters
and get ready for a great fight.

You can probably in about 4-5 turns go near to the geo symbol and destroy it.
Or you can take advantage of the geo symbol, in various ways. One of its 
main advantage is its very disadvantage. You do not know where you are gonna be
next turn.

But with strong characters like Plenair and Laharl at about near to Lvl.30~25,
you'll find no difficulty, unless you are extremely unlucky person.
In that case, you'll have to level up a bit, if your counters and attacks are
not strong.

First of all, as you observe the map, you'll notice only two blocks. 
The first block of Pucks, around your base panel and another block of two
Gargoyles and the midboss on the top.

+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
| 1 | d | 2 |   | 3 |   | 4 |
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+  B    : Base Panel
| b | e |   |   |   |   |   |  1-10 : Pucks.
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
| 5 | c | a | B |   |   | 6 |
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
|   |   |   |   |   |   |   |
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
| 7 |   | 8 |   | 9 |   |10 |
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+

 
First lift 8 and throw him on 'a'. 
Then  lift 7 and throw him on 'b'.
Then  lift 6 and throw him on 'c'.
Then  lift 4 and throw him on 'd'.
Then  lift 3 and throw him on 'e'.

Thus excepting 9 and 10, you have got all the remaining Pucks, on a 3x3 square
for your mages or for Laharl's Winged Slayer and Plenair's Usagi drop.

First use Plenair's Usagi Drop and then Winged Slayer following it, for a 
special hit.

The enemies hit by both the Usagi Drop and the Winged Slayer will be left with
a little HP and can be easily handled by others.
So, in that way you can handle about 3 of them. Others too will come at you.
But, if you send Plenair or someone alone at the enemies, it is more likely that
their Demon's Breath affects themselves and in that way, most of them can be
put to sleep.

Then, you handle the ones who are not asleep first and then the ones who are 
asleep. But in that case while you are doing all this, the Gargoyles and the 
Mid-Boss come.

So, it'll be summat difficult to handle. Pull Laharl out and use his specials
extensively on the Mid-Boss combined with Plenair's specials.
Mid-Boss can be eliminated within about 2-3 turns.

Vulcanus : This is no longer a case of disobeying orders. This is treason!

Seraph   : You are correct.

Vulcanus : ...So, what are you planning to do!?

Seraph   : Hmmm... I will need to think about it.

Vulcanus : Think about it? Think about it, you say!? This is a grave matter!!
           We can't just ignore it! I will handle this problem! You have no
           objections, do you!?

Seraph   : *sigh* ...Oh, dear...

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

Flonne   : W-W-W-W-W-What should I do!?
           If the Seraph hears of this, there is no telling what punishment
           awaits me!
           I might be dismissed from my Angel Trainee position!

Etna     : Who cares? Why don't you change jobs now and become a demon?

Flonne   : Nooooooo!
           Oh, Master Lamington! Please guide me!

Flonne : The evil Empress Etna has sent monsters to take over the world!!

Flonne : But when evil creeps up on people, Flonne, the messenger of love, comes
         to the rescue!

Flonne : As long as evil exists, Flonne's battle will never end!!

Flonne : Run, Flonne! Don't lose heart, Flonne! Let the people's cheers bring 
         you courage!

Flonne : Trannnnsforrrrrrmmmmm! Guardian Flonne!!

Flonne : Next on Guardian Flonne: Warrior of Love,

Flonne : Always keep love in your heart.

Laharl : Hmhmhm...
         Hmhmhm...!

Laharl : Haaahahahaha!!!!
 
Flonne : Geez... You just keep laughing and laughing.

Laharl : How can I not?
         I'm now the Overlord. That means that I'm the most eminent demon in all
         of the Netherworld.

Flonne : I am aware of that.
         But, ever since you have become the Overlord, you have done nothing but
         laugh.

Laharl : You don't understand a thing. Laughing is a very important aspect of
         of being the Overlord.
         Besides, there isn't any urgent matter that suitable for my first act
         as King Laharl the Terrible.

Etna   : Oh, Prince<3 I got a job for ya.

Laharl : Call me "Your Highness". I'm the Overlord now.

Etna   : Aww, come on... That's a minor detail.

Laharl : MINOR detail...?
         ...So, what kind of job is it?
         You want me to make it rain pepper on Earth so they can't stop 
         sneezing?
         Or, do you want me to give human kids an addictive video game that will
         deprive them of their sleep?

Etna   : Uh... No.
         Come in, Aramis.

Aramis : ......

Laharl : Who's this kid?

Aramis : Don't call me a kid. You're more of a kid yourself.

Laharl : What!? Who the hell do you think I am!?

Flonne : Now, now. He is just a child.

Aramis : Shut up, flat-chest.

Flonne : WHAT DID YOU SAY, YOU...!?
         *gasp* I mustn't!

Flonne : At times like this, love is the answer! With love, there is 
         understanding!

Aramis : Hey, does she have a few screws loose or somethin'?

Laharl : Hmph...! You've got some attitude, kid.

Etna   : Just like you, Prince.

Laharl : Yeah, right. So, what's he got to do with the job?

Etna   : Oh, yeah. His pets are missing.

Laharl : Hm?
         ...And?

Etna   : And your job's to look for them.

Laharl : Why would I, the Overlord, look for some stupid little brat's pets!?
         Ridiculous! Absolutely ridiculous!!
         Bring me something more fitting for my first task as Overlord!!

Etna   : I refuse!!

Laharl : -----!?

Flonne : -----!!?

Etna   : It may seem ridiculous to you, but it's important to him!!
         This is a perfect way to begin your rule as Overlord!
         And if you don't do it, I'm never gonna accept you as the Overlord!

Laharl : W, What are you getting so mad for? It's not like you.

Etna   : Answer me! Will you do it or not?

Laharl : Ugh... F, Fine! I'll do it, I'll do it.

Aramis : Good! ...And you better not slack off!

Laharl : Ugh...! Why am I, the Overlord of the Netherworld, taking orders from
         this annoying brat...?

As usual, talk to everyone in the castle.


Goleck : Prince!
         Your highness!
         King Laharl!
         ...There's no ring to that. I think I'll stick with "Prince".

Laharl : ......



Manty  : Your true value as Overlord will be decided by your future, not your
         past.
         Please live up to your name, my Overlord.

Laharl : W, What are you all serious for?

Manty  : Hahaha, don't worry, Prince. It was just a joke.

Flonne : I don't get demon jokes...



Dratti : The Prince is now King...
Flonne : You don't seem too happy.
Dratti : I'm not unhappy, it's just that I've always thought of King 
         Krichevskoy as the one and only King.
Etna   : Yeah, I can understand that.



Gargo  : It was only yesterday diapers, and now you're the Overlord...
Gargo  : What is the world coming to?
Laharl : ...And what are you getting at?



Ghoss  : About that Overlord from the alternate dimension...
         He claimed to be an Overlord, but I heard demons of that level are
         everywhere in the other dimension.
         The King told me once that the true ruler is a terrifying demon known
         as the "Lord of Terror".
         Even the King was wary of him, so I can't imagine how strong he is.

Laharl : Hmph... That's just a legend.
         If such a fool does exist... I, Laharl, shall pummel him to the ground!



Zommie : There's been a flood of Zombies at "Salamander's Breath", Prince.


When ready, talk to the Dimensional Gate keeper.


D.Gate
Keeper : Have you heard what's been happening at "Salamander's
         Breath"? Supposedly, there's been a flood of zombies recently.

Laharl : Zombies, huh...

Flonne : Could it be that Aramis' pet has been eaten by zombies?

Flonne : Oh, I get it! It's the power of love!

Etna   : ...Sure, whatever you say.

Zombie : OooooOooooooooOOhhh...

Laharl : A zombie.

Flonne : A zombie it is.

Laharl : Hey, brat. Don't tell me this one of your pets.

Aramis : Yeah. You got a problem with that?

Laharl : No. Actually, I like it. You've got good taste, kid.

Flonne : A zombie for a pet, huh...
         So... how do we catch it?

Laharl : Why not do the same thing we always do?

Etna   : I guess that would work. I mean, zombies are already dead anyway.
         Let the massacre begin!

Laharl : Agreed!

Flonne : Um, are you sure that's okay...?

Hey! A cool place to level up. The geo symbols... Exp+100 and HL+50.

The Zombies to the left of your Base Panel are just the ones required for a 
Overlord's Wrath and Usagi Drop.

Then after that, they surround you. So Usagi Drop again can be used and also
Laharl's Blazing knuckle.

You can also use Maderas and Hoggmeiser, for support.

Laharl : *sigh* Boring.

Etna   : Quit complaining. You wanna be a great Overlord or not?

Flonne : You sure are serious today, Etna.

Etna   : I'm always serious.
         Besides, the Prince needs to start acting more like his father.

Flonne : You mean, King Krichevskoy?

Etna   : Uh huh.
         Back when I just started working in the castle...
         I was teased and picked on every day for being a commoner.

Flonne : YOU were? That's hard to believe.

Etna   : At that time, I was still very naive. I was a scared little girl.
         The only thing that helped me get through those days was my faithful
         pet.
         But one day, I found him dead...
         Those damn demons killed him.

Flonne : How cruel...

Etna   : With no way to get back at them, I just cried...
         That was when the King reached out his hand to me...
         When I told him what happened, he helped me bury my pet.

Flonne : He must have been a kind man.

Etna   : Kind...?
         I don't know what kindness feels like, but he was a great man, and one 
         that I respected.
         That was why I pledged to him my deepest loyalty.
         But, the Prince... He's still not fit to succeed Krichevskoy as the
         Overlord.

Flonne : So, that's why you want Laharl to become just like his father...?
         *giggle* I see. You worry about Laharl after all.
         That's love.

Etna   : I doubt it. If he fails, I'll just kill him.

Flonne : WHAT!?

Etna   : Ahaha... Just kidding.

Flonne : Etna... You're starting to scare me...

Just destroy the Enemy Boostx3 symbol first, by throwing one of your characters
above the zombies. Then it'll become far easier.
Then defeat the zombies with special attacks.

A tough battle. Very clever...map. Make sure that atleast one of your 
characters have a HP of about ~1000. Just equip Laharl with a feather token
'and' an Imperial seal or Devil ring.

The map is totally against you. The side of the map, where your base panel is,
is covered with damage 20% and Silence. To destroy them, you need to go to
the other side. But you can't go to the other side due to the no entry symbols.
And to destroy the No entry symbols is not easy, as they have 3 chain mails
to defend themselves.

So, its gonna be difficult. You must act very cleverly...too get the minimum
damage to yourself.



So, to win this, you need to sacrifice a character. Take out on of your best
characters, who can do a good amount of damage. Its better to take Laharl,
as it assures a success. But make sure you have another character to deal
with the enemies.

First of all throw Laharl near the No entry Geo Symbol. You can use more than
one character to throw him. Make sure that you use some less Level, characters 
to throw Laharl. Then attack the No Entry Geo Symbol.
He must do atleast 100~150 damage or more than that. Note that you cant use
your special attacks.

Then end the turn. All your three characters (If you have used two to throw 
Laharl) , will take some damage. But never mind. 

In the second turn, put the characters you have used to throw Laharl in the 
base panel again.

Again attack the Geo symbol. This time, it should be destroyed. Else, it depends
on your luck, whether you'll survive or not.


STRATEGY I:

But if its destroyed, move in to the other side of the map and end the turn.
The enemies may attack you. But you must be in a condition to survive the
attacks. Then in your turn, go towards the Damage 20% symbol. If you are
aside the Silence symbol, then do not hesitate to destroy it.

In the next tuen, destroy the Damage 20% symbol and by that time, Laharl or
any other character of your will have been dead, due to the poison attacks 
of the zombies (zombie pukes).

Then as usual bring out your other characters and kill the enemies.

STRATEGY II:

After the geo symbol is destroyed, move your characters into the other side and
throw them into the damage 20% side of the map.Then they'll get damaged
every turn. If you go any nearer to them, they'll again come at you.
So, just end the turns and see them die.

The Geo Symbols are removed after you beat this map.


An easy map after a difficult one. Saw the Geo Symbols, right?

Just put four of your strong characters on the Red Geo symbols.
And if you want, you can put one of your low level characters, whom you may
want to level up, on the base panel.

Then let the enemies come at you and kill 'em off.

NOTE:
TAKE 5 or 6 STEALING HANDS WITH YOU!!!

If you have a rogue, level him up to atleast 100~150. If you dont have a rogue,
then create him and level him...

You'll have to steal the horse weiner, Mahogany's brain and the Hercules body
from the Level 27 zombie.


First of all, lure the zombies out of the green geo panels. Then attack them.
Slowly all the demons come to your side of the map. Keep hitting them, Plenair
will be the best. She'll dodge, the unique zombie's attacks. All others will
soon die when they are hit by the unique zombie.

So, kill all the zombies except the unique one. You can reduce its HP if you 
want. But in no case, kill it. After all the other demons die, then 
concentrate on the unique zombie.

Line your characters on the Green Geo Panels and put your rogue in a good 
position and steal all the three items. But first take off the Horse Weiner.

Then just kill him.

NOTE:
If you can make it, then do it. Or else never mind. You'll still get a chance
in Etna Mode.

Laharl : Here, I caught 'em all.
         So, quit your complaining.

Aramis : ......

Laharl : ...What? What's the problem now?

Aramis : ...Thank you, Your Highness.

Laharl : H, Hmph...! Well, it IS part of my job as the Overlord...
         And don't bother to thank me. If you want to show your gratitude, you
         can repay me with your body.

Etna   : Hmmm... I never knew you were like that...

Laharl : Idiot!
         I meant, become my vassal and serve me when you're old enough!

Aramis : ...Yes, Your Highness.

Laharl : Speak to me with respect from now on, got it?

Aramis : Yes, Your Highness!

Laharl : Hmhmhm...
         Haaahahahaha!!!!
         Did you hear that, Etna?
         That kid called me "Your Highness".
         So? Do you accept me as Overlord now?

Etna   : Well... you passed for the time being.
         But, be careful not to flunk out.

Laharl : Ugh...! Why you...!

Flonne : *giggle* Talk about strict.
         (Still, Laharl has changed quite a bit since the first time I met him.)
         (He is maturing little by little as he meets new people.)
         (And it feels like I have changed, too... since meeting him and his
         companions.)
         (If you open your heart, you will surely grow and learn many new 
         things...)
         (...whether you're an angel...
         ...or a demon...)
         (If I can explain this to other angels, maybe they'll see that not all
         demons are evil...)

Big Sis
Prinny : Sure, dood.

Flonne : Thank goodness.
         They say that I see things the way I want them to be, so I wasn't sure
         if Laharl has actually changed or not.
         But, it can't just be my imagination, if you noticed a difference, too.
         Alright! That means Laharl is definitely awakening to the idea of love!
         Love is magnificent!

Etna   : Like I said, several Prinnies are missing!

Laharl : Why!?

Etna   : How should I know? Maybe they ran away because you treated them
         so badly.

Laharl : Hmmm...
         C, Come to think of it, 20-hour workdays with no days off WAS a bit
         harsh...

Flonne : In conditions like that, it's no wonder that they chose to 
         fly-by-night.

Laharl : Fly-by-night? Is there something you're not telling us?

Flonne : Uh, no... Nothing at all.

Big Sis
Prinny : Prince.

Laharl : Hmm? What?

Big Sis
Prinny : Don't worry, they'll be alright... dood.

Laharl : I'm not worried about THEM!
         If people hear that I let my vassals escape, I'll lose all respect!
         That's why we're gonna find them! ...Even if it is a big waste of time!

Flonne : That's so mean! You don't have to say it like that...!

Etna   : Take it easy, Flonne. He's just too embarrassed to admit the truth.

Flonne : ...Really?

Etna   : Yeah... I think.

Flonne : ......

         ...Sometimes grand instruction like that are good, aren't they?

Flonne : You're asking me? ...Um, I really don't know what to say...


Manty  : Well, Prinnies are humans after all. I guess life in the Netherworld is
         something they'll never get used to.

Etna   : I don't think they're that delicate...



Dratti : I've been keeping this a secret...
        I'm actually a female.


Gargo  : Have you got a use for this?

 {HE'LL GIVE YOU STAFF OF SORCERY!!!}

Gargo  : Hey, that's all I have!!



Ghoss  : I heard the Prinnies ran away. It's no surprise though, since they're
         working under you, Prince.

Laharl : What is that supposed to mean?

Ghoss  : Oh, come now! You know what I mean<3



Zommie : Today, I'm going to give you a pretty straightforward hint.
         Go to the "Lunar Snowfield". The Prinnies are there.

Laharl : ...You know, I don't think you can call that a "hint"...


After you're ready talk to the Dimensional Gatekeeper.


D.Gate
Keeper: Prince, have you talked to the zombie over there?
        He was bragging about having an important hint for you.

Another clever map...

STRATEGY I:

You gotta be careful this time. You need to use chain throws. 
First take a character out. Then take Plenair or another character with high 
speed, on the base panel. Using the first character, lift Plenair or other.
Take out another character and lift that character.
Use about 5 character and at last, your Plenair or the other will land near
the enemy boostx3 symbol.

Then use another chain throw through the other route. Its better to take
Laharl.

Now use both the characters' special attacks and finish the Geo Symbol off.

NOTE:-
If you have a character which can do a damage of 314 or above, the non chain
throw is enough. Just use that character and finish the Geo Symbol off.

Then end the turn. Possibly all your other characters whom you might have used
in the chain throw will have died by the end of the turn.

But if your Plenair and Laharl are in good levels, its not at all a problem.

Then get going and deal with the enemies. Now that you have destroyed the 
Enemy Boostx3, it will not be a problem at all.


NOTES:-
1) Be very careful with the Man Eater's poison attacks. Take some Fairie dusts
with you.

2)The cyclops dont happen to move. So maintain a distance and attack them.
But keep in mind that they have a very high Defence.

3)Use some long range multiple enemy attacks.

Laharl : S, So? What's it to you?

Flonne : People's feelings are delicate. They can be hurt by just the slightest
         insult.
         Laharl, you are too inconsiderate. You should approach people with more
         love.

Laharl : What!? You stupid Love Freak!! Who do you think I------

Flonne : There! That's the attitude I'm talking about!
         You'll never become a respected Overlord with an attitude like that!

LOL! See the number of enemies...
Of all these only three of them can really pose a threat to you. So be careful
with the 3 Lvl.32 monsters and play with the others.

Some grinding is required for this map. The levels of the enemies are very
much increased when compared to the previous maps.

So get your characters to about 35~40 for easy handling of the enemies. If you
use more characters, then you can level them to about 30.



Some Battlers will guard the Geo Symbols which give strength to the Blue Mages
and the Battlers on the platform. So first of all kill them. In the mean time,
others will come at you, except the 4 ones on the platform, with the Mages.

For the others, prefer area attacks like Winged Slayer and Usagi Drop. Keep a 
Cleric at hand, if you need. After you kill the ones that come at you, destroy
the two Geo Symbols- Enemy Boostx3 and Attacks+1. Then place the ATK-50 on the
Yellow Geo panel and Go to the enemies on the platform.

Make Laharl stand before them and use Winged Slayer to attack five of them.
The Mages will die immediately, if you are at a good level and the Battlers will
be damaged. Then use Plenair's Usagi Drop and finish the damaged ones off
(Laharl may get damaged by Usagi Drop, but dont worry, if he has enough Health).

Now only one Battler remains who can easily be killed in another turn.

           You know the legend, don't you? That inside the Prinnies are
           the souls of sinful humans...

Flonne   : Yes... And that they work in Celestia and the Netherworld to atone
           for those sins.

Big Sis
Prinny   : That's right...
           The red moon purifies their sins so they can be reborn...

Flonne   : What a heartwrenching sight...

Laharl   : Etna! Stop them!

Etna     : Prince, weren't you listening? The Prinnies are being reborn...

Laharl   : Shut up! I never gave them permission for that!
           We'll drag 'em back here if we have to!

Laharl   : Who are you!?

Red Ghost: Take... Prinnies'... souls... to... red... moon...

Laharl   : We'll see about that! Those Prinnies are mine!

Seraph   : Are you worried?

No special strategy, for this one. Just kill 'em all. Grind if you cant clear
the stage.

But beware of the Chernobog and the shades. They have HP of about ~1400 and 
~1200.

But, if you are at about 30~50, it'll be damn easy one. With a very good gear,
my Laharl was at Level 40 and Pleanir at 48, it was a child's play.
Of course, I had equipped Laharl with Horse Weiner and Plenair with Hercules
Body.

Red Ghost: Ohhhhh... Why... are... you... interefering... with... work...?

Laharl   : Work?

Big Sis-
Prinny   : That's right, dood. You shouldn't interfere with Death's work, dood.
           It's here to guide the souls of the Prinnies to the red moon, dood.
           If you truly value your vassals...
           ...If you have any love for them, then you should wish them
           good luck, dood.

Laharl  : Hmph... You sound just like that Love Freak...
          ......
          ...It's what's best for their sake?

Big Sis-
Prinny  : That's right, dood.

Laharl  : ...I see. Then, I'll let them go.

Big Sis-
Prinny  : You understand, dood?

Laharl  : ...Well, yeah.

Big Sis-
Prinny  : Thank goodness...
          Then, I can leave without worry.

Flonne  : Wait!
          What sin... What sin did you commit?
Big Sis-
Prinny  : ......
          I took my own life.
          Taking your own life is a grave sin...

Flonne  : Why would you...?

Big Sis-
Prinny  : ...To save my son's life.


Laharl  : ------------!!

Big Sis-
Prinny  : Because of my death, my son shut away his feelings...
          But, he's changing ever so slowly.

Big Sis-
Prinny  : It's all thanks to the wonderful people around him...
          My work here is done... The rest is up to my son.

Laharl  : ......!

Flonne  : You're just going to leave!?
          Not even a goodbye!? ...Despite how much you love him!?

Big Sis-
Prinny  : ...What cruel words you speak.

Flonne  : Eh...?

Big Sis-
Prinny  : Of course I would like to reveal myself. Of course I would like
          to hug my son with my own hands.
          But if we are destined to part again, then wouldn't it better
          to watch from afar and leave without saying a single word?
          He has suffered enough already... My silence is how I show my love.

Flonne  : ......
          ...I'm sorry.
          I tried to push my idea of love onto you without considering your 
          reasons...
          Without considering your feelings... I'm sorry...

Big Sis-
Prinny  : Haha... Prince, you've met a wonderful person, dood.
          Prince... take care.
          Flonne, Etna... Take care of him for me.
          ...Good bye.

Laharl  : Ah...!



The red moon reflected in Laharl's eyes, swaying sadly.
A gentle, loving mother who gave up her life to save her son...
A son who could only accept his mother's death by denying love and kindness...
I can't imagine how painful, how diffiult it was for him.
I'm sure the red moon will wash away his sorrow.



Laharl  : Love... huh...

Flonne  : Huh...?

Laharl  : ...Nothing.
          Let's return to the castle... Flonne.

Flonne  : Laharl...



When Laharl called me by my name for the very first time, I noticed... that
the red moon no longer shone in his eyes.
I'll always remember the sad tale of a mother and her son...




Red moon, red moon...
Cleanses the sinful and makes them anew...
Shining brightly in the night sky,
waiting for the souls...
Who will be born again tonight?
Who will be born again tonight?

Prinny
Squad  : Dood... Prince, there's some kind of anomaly in the Stellar Graveyard.

Laharl : Invaders from another world?

Prinny
Squad  : I have no idea, dood.

Flonne : Invaders...?
         Are they angels who are here to take me back?

Etna   : I doubt it. That place attracts a lot of weird things besides stars.
         Flying saucers, probes, brain suckers, midgets with glowing
         fingertips...

Flonne : Oh, my... That means there may be people who are hurt.
         Let's go, Laharl.

Laharl : Forget it. It's probably just a piece of trash.

Flonne : Laharl!

Laharl : Geez... Shouldn't an Overlord be doing something more important than
         this?


Talk to the vassals.



Goleck : According to human belief, the Netherworld and Celestia both exist
         somewhere in space.

Flonne : Then, do humans consider us aliens?

Goleck : Most likely<3

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

Manty  : The Stellar Graveyard is a magnet for space debris of all kinds.
         Don't eat anything you find there.

Laharl : Like I would!!

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

Dratti : It's hard standing in the same spot all the time, you know.

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

Gargo  : It's a bit late, but it's better to focus on one weapon rather than
         trying to balance all weapons.

Etna   :  ...More like it's too late.

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

Ghoss  : It feels like something big's gonna happen. Oh, I'm so excited<3

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

Zommie : Not to brag, but I've never taken a bath in my entire life.

Laharl : Oh yeah? I've never brushed my teeth in my entire life, so there!

Flonne : That's nothing to brag about.


Asusual after you equip your characters and do any extra stuff you wanna do,
talk to Dimensional Gate Keeper.


D.Gate
Keeper : I've been waiting for you, Prince. You are headed to the 
         "Stellar Graveyard", correct?
         People have been saying that I am spoiling you, but I don't want you to
         get lost. I will see to it that you get there safe.

Laharl : Listen, I'm not a child.
         ...Geez.

Etna     : Flonne, you're so romantic. I just wanna choke you to death!

Flonne   : E, Etna...! You ARE choking me...! I, I, I can't breathe...

Laharl   : Hey, enough of that.

Oh GREAT! The place is just great for Winged Slayer or 3x3 Magic Attacks.
So, just do that. But beware that the enemies are very powerful.

NOTE: Without any 3x3 attacks also, you can clear this stage. But it would be 
      a bit difficult.

Jennifer: Sense any signs of life, Thursday?

Thursday: UNFORTUNATELY, NO TRACE OF GORDON'S BIOLOGICAL SIGNATURE.

Jennifer: I see... We have to find him.
          I heard at headquarters that the Netherworld is full of nasty, 
          vicious creatures.
          If we're discovered...
          Ahh! I'll be molested by countless slimy tentacles and my bodily
          fluids will be sucked dry!!
          Or, we could be swallowed whole and suffer a slow and painful death
          as we're digested alive!!
          Or even worse...

Thursday: JENNIFER, PLEASE KEEP YOUR IMAGINATION UNDER CONTROL.
          LIFE SIGNS DETECTED... READINGS DO NOT CORRESPOND WITH CAPTAIN 
          GORDON'S BIOLOGICAL SIGNATURE.
          LIFE FORMS ARE APPROACHING. OH $*&% RUN RUN RUN...!

Jennifer: Shh! Thursday, be quiet.

Laharl  : That's odd... I thought I heard a voice of a woman...

Jennifer: What? Human children in the Netherworld!?

Laharl  : A human!? And on top of that, she's...!!

Jennifer: I got it! You were kidnapped by the Overlord, weren't you!?
          Oh, the humanity! I heard that demons are merciless, even towards
          children!
          Aww, you poor things...!
          They didn't bite your arm off, did they!? They didn't suck your
          brains out, did they!? They didn't anal probe you, did they!?

Etna    : What the hell does she think demons are!?

Jennifer: But, don't you worry, big sis will make it all better.

Laharl  : N, No! Get away from me!

Jennifer: What?

Laharl  : Keep your sexy body away from me!

Jennifer: Oh, I understand! You're going through puberty, aren't you?
          Don't be embarrassed, little boy. Everyone goes through that period.
          Okay, I'll teach you everything there is to know<3
          You see, as young girls mature, their breasts grow bigger, and 
          boys...

Etna    : ...Great, now she's teaching sex ed. Who the hell is this lady?

Flonne  : Ummm... I'm sorry top interrupt you, but we're not human children.

Jennifer: Huh? ...What do you mean?

Flonne  : I am Flonne, an angel in training...
          ...This is Etna, a demon.
          And the one you called "cute little boy" is the Overlord, Laharl.

Jennifer: ......
          This is outrageous!! I can't believe such a cute little boy could be
          the Overlord!
          This is completely different from the information provided by
          headquarters! What's going on, Thursday!?

Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... NOW CALCULATING, NOW CALCULATING...
          NOW CALCULATING, NOW CALCULATING...

Jennifer: What's the answer?

Thursday: "HEADQUARTERS IS A BUNCH OF LIARS."

Jennifer: Oh, no! Does that mean that the Overlord planning to invade Earth is
          a lie, too!?
          We came here to slay the Overlord, for heaven's sake! There must be
          some misunderstanding!

Laharl  : Wait. Did I hear you say... You came here to slay the Overlord?

Jennifer: N, No no... Not me.
          That's the responsibility of our hero, Captain Gordon, the Defender
          of Earth.
          I'm his assistant, Jennifer. And this is Thursday, the multi-purpose
          super robot.

Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... NICE TO MEET YOU.

Laharl  : Hero, you say?

Jennifer: Yes, Captain Gordon id the earth's hero. His noble mission is to
          vanquish any evil that threatens the earth.
          But, we were separated from him when our spaceship crashed.

Laharl  : Hmhmhm...
          Very interesting! I must definitely meet this Captain Gordon!

Flonne  : Why is that?

Laharl  : It is an Overlord's duty to challenge heroes!

Flonne  : Wow... Cool!

Laharl  : Woman, follow me! I shall find your hero!!

Jennifer: Really!?

Laharl  : But, I don't want that sexy body of yours within a 3-foot radius
          of me!

Jennifer: *chuckle* As you wish<3
          Okay. Let's go look for Gordon!

You may have already guessed what you have to do...
Just throw the Nekomatas outside the green geopanels and then place the no entry
Geo Symbol on the Green Geo panels...

This makes it more convenient for you. But beware of the attacks of the enemies
though. They have special attacks to attack you.

For this, get a gunner out, and put him in the maximum distance from an enemy
and attack the enemy. As you'll be out o range for the enemy, he will not 
attack you.

But still...be careful.

You can see some new kind of enemies here who can do some massive damage to you.
They are the Black Belts.

So, as you start the stage, you can see Geopanels arranged in a shape.
But if you are a gamer of only some levelled up characters, then it doesnt 
concern you.
Just put one of your best character on the first Geo Panel and attack from
there with long ranged attacks or specials. You'll have the advantage of 
ATK+50 and DEF+50, too.

If you usually use more than 1~2 characters, then put your characters on the 
panels and beat the lights out of the enemies.


But be very careful with the Balck belts. They can attack very well. They have 
some good equip too. So if you are interested, then you can steal it.
But note that you can buy all that at the shop if you pass the proposal
"More Expensive Stuff" at the Dark Assembly. You have to be at the product 
rank of about 3~4 for this stuff.

There are two methods for this. One- the rough method. Two- Less Rough method.

For the first one, you know as the name implies. Just go ahead and kill them of
as cruelly as you can.

For the second, just throw the Geo Symbol on the Green geo panels, for Silence.
They have enormous amonuts of Sp because of their equip. So, Silence can help
you a lot.

Same as the previous map, you can collect their equip too.

          You must have been through hell. But, have no fear. Captain Gordon is

Laharl  : How dare you call me a child! I am the Overlord!

Gordon  : You? The Overlord!?

NOTE:-
After the stage clears, the bosses are replaced by a cyclops, who can give a 
massive amount of Exp, though he's at the same level as the bosses.


A not so difficult stage at all. Just use your specials and Team Attacks to 
finish them off quickly. I dunno why they made this stage soo simple though..

But beware of the Super Robo's Specials. They do much damage to you.

Laharl  : Haaahahahaha!! How do you like that, hero!? Taste the power of the
          Overlord!!
          You've learned an important lesson today... Heroes don't always win!!
          Haaahahahaha!!

Flonne  : Oh no... What have I done? I have injured a human...
          I... inadvertently...

Etna    : Inadvertently my butt...
          Flonne, lately you've been acting more and more like us demons, huh?

Flonne  : N, No, I haven't...
          But, if the Seraph finds out...



Vulcanus: Seraph! Seraph Lamington, are you here!? This is a serious matter!!

Seraph  : It is always a serious matter when you come here. What is it this
          time?

Vulcanus: Flonne has killed a human in the Netherworld!!

Seraph  : What? Flonne killed a human?

Vulcanus: That's right! Even if she is a trainee, an angel harming a human is a
          grave sin!!
          Is this forgivable!? No, such a sin cannot be forgiven!!

Seraph  : ...But still, that is odd. Why would a human be in the Netherworld?

Vulcanus: W, Well...
          At any rate, I will make sure that Flonne is captured!!
          I will be using some of the troops. I have your permission, correct?

Seraph  : ...Very well. I shall leave it to you, Vulcanus.

Vulcanus: Yes, sir!

Seraph  : ...Hmmm, I never expected humans to interfere.
          Now then... How will he respond to this...?



Flonne  : Everything will be fine! The Seraph will understand that it was just a
          mistake!
          ...He surely will!

Etna    : You better hope so...

Etna   : Now that we have the Defender of Earth on our side, our space adven...

Gordon : Hi, everyone! This is your hero, Captain Gordon!

Etna   : It won't be easy for Gord...

Gordon : As all of you know, I am the 37th Defender of Earth!
         As the name suggests, it is my duty to defend the Earth!

Etna   : What lies ahead of...

Gordon : No matter what lies ahead, I swear on my honor...
         ...and the name "Defender of Earth", that evil-doers shall not escape!
         That is my mission!

Etna   : Next...

Gordon : Next on Captain Gordon: Defender of Earth,
         Episode 10: Angels, Demons, and Humans!
         Look forward to my adventures! Hahahahahaha!!

Etna   : "Hahaha" my ass!

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

Laharl  : Gordon! Wash my shorts!
          Gordon! After that, clean my room!
          Gordon! After that, make dinner!

Gordon  : *huff* *huff* ...!
          (What humiliation! The Defender of Earth working for the Overlord! I
          can't apologize enough to my predecessors!)

Laharl  : Hmmmmm? You look unhappy.
          Don't tell me that a hero would break his promise, now.

Gordon  : *groan*
          (A hero never breaks a promise!)
          (All I can do right now is endure this!)
          (As long as my faith does not falter, hope remains!!)
          (I've got it! I'll just pretend to obey him!)
          (And when he lets his guard down, I'll escape back to Earth!)
          (All right! I just need to have patience! Good thinking, Gordon!)

Laharl  : Your eyes are full of hope... You're planning something, aren't you?

Gordon  : N, No I'm not! I was just...

Jennifer: Morning, Harlie<3

Laharl  : I told you not to call me that!

Jennifer: Why not? It's cuter that way.
          Etna and Flonne and going to show me around the Netherworld, and 
          we're gonna have a picnic.
          Why don't you come along, Harlie? We made a great lunch!

Gordon  : Picnic?
          You must be joking, Jennifer! I, the Defender of Earth, am working,
          and you, my assistant, are picnicking?

Jennifer: But Gordon, today's Sunday. It's a day off for everybody.

Gordon  : Well, that's true, but...
          Thursday, you'll stay here and work with me, right?

Thursday: ROBOTS REQUIRE REST, TOO. THURSDAY WILL ATTEND PICNIC WITH JENNIFER.
          LALALA.

Gordon  : Hey! You traitor!

Jennifer: There you have it, Gordon. We'll leave the chores to you.

Etna    : ...So, where should we go?

Flonne  : It's her first time in the Netherworld, so how about the Sea of 
          Gehenna?

Etna    : Why!? It's so hot over there.

Jennifer: What kind of place is it?

Flonne  : It's a big tourist spot. Since you're new to the Netherworld, you have
          to go check it out!

Jennifer: Is there a souvenir shop around?

Flonne  : Um, it's not exactly the kind of place that sells souvenirs...

Etna    : If it's souvenirs you're looking for, try Sphinx's on Sacrifice
          Street. They've got nice mummy heads, see?

Jennifer: Oh! How adorable!

Flonne  : Hey! That's the Nether Year 666 Limited Edition model! I want one!

Etna    : Heheh, too bad.

Jennifer: Okay, today it's a picnic at the Sea of Gehenna, and tomorrow it's
          shopping on Sacrifice Street.

Etna    : Sounds like a plan!

Flonne  : I'm in!

Laharl  : ...Now I just plain pity you, Gordon.
          Alright, we're going to the Sea of Gehenna!
          I will never, ever allow those women to go picnicking on their own!

Gordon  : That's a great idea! We should do it!
          It's not like we'd be going on a picnic, going lalala. Someone has to
          protect them!

Laharl  : Right, let's go!

Gordon  : (*snicker* Here's my chance!)
          (I'll sneak off and escape during the picnic!)

Talk to everyone in the castle.


Goleck  : Humans can only live for about 100 years? What a brief existence.

Gordon  : It's not the length of your life, the the density of it!

Etna    : Yeah, but you're dense in a different way.

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

Manty   : Hmmm... So these are the Defenders of Earth...

Jennifer: Oh my god! Gordon, the lion is speaking!

Gordon  : C-Calm down, Jennifer! This is the Netherworld! Lions can talk here!

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

Dratti  : Humans must be tougher than I though, if one can survive against you.

Laharl  : It's not much fun picking on the weak. I let him off easy this time,
          that's all. Don't get the wrong idea.

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

Gargo   : You're probably the only Overlord ever to have humans and an angel as
          vassals.

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

Ghoss   : There were other humans that came to the Netherworld, but not like 
          these...

Gordon  : Hmmm? What do you mean by that?

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

Zommie  : An angel assassin... An attack by humans... A lot has been happening
          lately...

Laharl  : All thanks to my evil deeds. Hmhmhm...

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

May be I neednt repeat this always...After equips and any Dark Assembly work,
talk to the Diemnsional Gate Keeper to start the next episode.

D.Gate
Keeper  : Picnic at the Sea of Gehenna, Prince? You are still quite childish.
          *chuckle*

Laharl  : N, No, I'm not! I'm going to investigate the area...

Gordon  : Picnic, picnic, La la, la la, laaaaa.

D.Gate
Keeper  : So... You ARE going on a picnic.

G.Carter  : It's past the scheduled time, and still no word from Gordon.
            Apparently, even the Defender of Earth was no match for the
            Overlord...

Sharp-Eyed
Man       : He's not the real Defender of Earth.
            If you had just left it to me, I would have been done ages ago.

G.Carter  : Are you still carrying on about that? You need to be more 
            insightful, Kurtis.
            It doesn't really matter to me whether he wins or loses.
            His mission ended as soon as he opened a route to the 
            Netherworld. Slaying the Overlord was just a pretext.

Kurtis    : Hmph. They're nothing but pawns to you, huh...

G.Carter  : What an ugly way of saying it, Kurtis. I prefer to call them
            the "heroes who sacrificed their lives for the earth".
            Muhahahaha!!

Kurtis    : (Hmph... Gordon wouldn't die so easily.)
            (Only I, Kurtis, can defeat him!)
            (I bet he beat the Overlord already and is enjoying a picnic
            right now, going lalala)




Gordon    : Lalala.
            Hahahahaha!! I never thought that picnicking in the Netherworld
            would be so delightful.

Laharl    : ...Is this guy really a hero?
            I'm not one to say, but... I always thought a hero was a bit more
            dignified.
            This guy's just a fool.

Flonne    : No, a true hero hides his real identity from the world, pretending
            to be quiet or weak.
            Then, when someone needs to be saved, he appears admirably to uphold
            justice.
            That's right, isn't it?

Jennifer  : Well, I guess...

Gordon    : Lalala.

Etna      : You sure? He looks like he doesn't have a care in the world...

Gordon    : Lalala.
           (Alright, they're falling for my plan.)
           (Now, all I have to do is just play along until I can make a run for
           it!)



Seraph    : Your continued existence hinges on an incredibly unstable balance.
            Do you understand?

?????     : I am aware of that.

Seraph    : Then, please take better care of yourself.

?????     : I would like to, but I cannot leave them on their own.

Seraph    : ...My power is not limitless. Please do not forget that.

?????     : ......

If you have some fist users, then it becomes easy. Just use your fist attacks
which move the enemies. Thus make them go to the non affected area and then kill
them.


The problem comes...if you dont have fist users. Then just lure the enemies to
the No-Geo panel area and kill them.
For example, if you take one character and put them just before the bridge
on the invincibility panel, then the enemy on the other side of the map
comes at you, but he stands on the normal area. Then you can kill him easily.

After you kill the enemy that came at you, you can cross the bridge and go
to the other side of the map. Then the ones on this side will stand on the 
non affected panels and you can kill them. Once you kill the ones on the bridge,
again go to the other side and lure anyothers who may have been missed.

Repeat till you kill all of them.

Gordon  : Hey! What's wrong, Master?
          You're not having fun? I thought kids loved picnics. The sky is blue,
          the weather is perfect!
          Come on! Let's sing!

Laharl  : I'm not a kid! I'm 1313 years old. And mentally, I'm much more mature
          than you, too.

Etna    : Mature? I think you two are about the same.
          ...For your information, I'm 1470.

Flonne  : I'm ummm... fairly young.

Laharl  : Young? How old is young?

Flonne  : Young is... young.

Laharl  : You're an angel, aren't you? Tell the truth.

Flonne  : ......
          One thousand... five hundred nine.

Etna    : What!? You're older than me!?

Laharl  : Haaahahahaha!! You old hag!

Flonne  : I'm not old!!

Jennifer: ...That's amazing. No one would think you're that old.

Laharl  : Hmph. That's why humans act so foolishly. They judge solely on looks.

Jennifer: Ooh, you talk big. Then you shouldn't mind my body, right?

Laharl  : Uh... W, Well...
          I'm getting hungry. Let's eat.

Jennifer: *chuckle* Changing the subject, huh? I'll let it slide this time.

Flonne  : Here's the picnic basket...

Mid-Boss: En garde!!

Flonne  : Ah, the picnic basket!!

Mid-Boss: It has been a while, mademoiselle. The sweet smell of these entrees
          has led moi all the way here.

Etna    : Hey, Mid-Boss! Give us back our food!!

Mid-Boss: Non non non non non... I cannot oblige.
          For moi, a widower, this handmade lunch is like an oasis in a 
          desert...
          I cannot give it back.

Laharl  : You return after all this time, and for a stupid reason like this?

Flonne  : Mr. Mid-Boss, you don't have anyone to make lunch for you? Poor 
          thing...

Mid-Boss: Stop pitying moi! That sends a sharp pain to my heart!

Gordon  : Hold it right there!
          Mid-Boss, was it? That picnic basket is mine! Give it back, now!

Mid-Boss: Hmmm... You are a human, are you not?

Gordon  : That's right! They call me Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth!!

Mid-Boss: And why is the Defender of Earth picnicking with demons?

Gordon  : Sh, Shut up! I'm not here because I want to be!

Mid-Boss: Very well. I shall test your resolve, o Defender of Earth...
          Now! Can you retrieve this basket from moi!? Haaahahahaha!!

Gordon  : Hey, you! Wait!!

Laharl  : It's so pathetic that we put up with that idiot...

Ok then...Most of the enemies are below Lvl.30...sooo easy. After having
dealt with enemies of Lvl.35+, these seem easy.
Moreover, there arent any Geo Symbols too. That means there isnt any strategy
necessary. Just the plain old way of killing one by one.

You neednt even move much. Just as you kill the Hobbits near you and end your
turn, the others slowly come at you. Like that as you kill the enemies, more
of them come to you, to get killed.

But the Dragons and the Fafnir are dangerous. If you are at about 40~50, they
can die in 1~2 turns.

Use Brave hearts if necessary.

You know what to do...right?
Firstly destroy the Recovery 20% Geo symbol, near your base. Then go for the
other Recovery 20% symbol and destroy that one also.

Then go for the other two Symbols guarded by the Brownies. After you destroy
the No lifting Symbol, throw the DEF-50 on the Geo panel, where the No lifting 
was there. Then destroy the last Geo Symbol and the last two Brownies.

After that, go for the Sentinel. He will be pretty weak, now that the Geo
Symbols are gone. And also, he doesnt move from his place. But he uses his
specials.
A team attack of specials can easily destroy him in 1~2 turns.

Gordon  : Hmmm... Where did our lunch go?

Etna    : Let's go home. This is pointless.

Laharl  : I agree.

Laharl  : You're just hungry.

Gordon  : What are you talking about!? This is a challenge by evil! I cannot

Flonne  : How wonderful! You really are a hero!

Jennifer: Gordon, let's have Thursday search for the basket using his olfactory
          tracking device.

Gordon  : Oh yeah! I forgot about that!

Jennifer: Thursday, can you pinpoint the location where the picnic lunch's
          smell originates?

Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... NO PROBLEM, JENNIFER.
          BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... ANALYSING AIR COMPONENTS. SMALL TRACES OF
          SCENT CONFIRMED.
          BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... FACTORING IN WIND VECTORS.
          PROJECTED COORDIANTES LIE IN THE AREA UP AHEAD.

Jennifer: Thanks, Thursday. Hey guys, the culprit is up ahead.

Etna    : That robot can do stuff like that, too? Pretty useful.

Gordon  : Of course! Thursday is the multi-purpose super robot!
          And the creator of Thursday is none other than Jennifer!
          She was a child prodigy who invented Thursday at the age of 5 and 
          earned a Ph.D. in every subject by the age of 10!
          Without her help, we would never have understood the secret of the
          pyramids, or solved the case of Jack the Tripper!

Etna    : ...So, why are YOU bragging?

Flonne  : That's incredible, Miss Jennifer.

Jennifer: It's nothing, really.

Laharl  : I thought you were just a dumb blonde, but I guess I was wrong.

Jennifer: Hmmmm? Who was the one saying not to judge people by their looks,
          Harlie?

Laharl  : Uh... Did I say that?
          Anyways, we have to get the basket back before Mid-Boss eats it all!

Jennifer: *chuckles* You're right. Let's go.

A pretty difficult map. There are 12 enemies all very strong. And the advantage
is the Exp+100 symbols and the enemies standing on them.

Firstly, the enemies on the left are just what are arranged in what we just
need, for Blazing Knuckle and Usagi Drop.
So finish them off quickly using that.

Now for the other enemies, you can use your new Vassals Thursday, Jennifer and
Gordon-The Defender Of the Earth.

Then carefully kill the other enemies also. Beware of their poison attacks.
If needed, keep a Cleric at hand always.

NOTE:-
The Nidhogg will replace the boss after its cleared.


Another Mid-Boss Battle...This is gonna be...summat difficult, if you are 
underlevelled.

You have gotta use most of your characters here.  I wont specify what you have
to do exactly...but I'll give you some tips of what you have to do.

1) Prepare yourself for the Pucks' poison attacks. They also seem to heal
   themselves as well as the Fafnirs. So, try to take out the Dragons in one
   turn only, if possible, using Team attacks.

2) Take out the Pucks as quickly as you can. They can be very distracting.
   So allot some of your characters specially for Pucks, like the DOE Team
   (Defenders of Earth). Use their specials especially Jennifer's Cosmic
   Arrow.

3) Concentrate on the mid boss and the Fafnirs with your most powerful 
   characters, in my case Laharl (Lvl.49) and Plenair (Lvl.53).

4) Use most powerful Special attacks on them, if possible, in a Team Attack.
   Mid-Boss's Specials are very powerful too. His HP is too high too.

5) Use Clerics to heal and Mages to Boost your attack using Brave Hearts.


In this way they must be eliminated with care.

Laharl  : You lose again. Now, give back the picnic basket.

Mid-Boss: Haaahahahaha!! Unfortunately for you, I have already consumed the
          contents!!

Gordon  : You fiend! How dare you!

Mid-Boss: That means this duel is a draw!
          We shall meet again! My compliments to the chef!

Flonne  : Ahhhh... Our lunch...

Jennifer: Oh, it's okay. We can always make it again.

Gordon  : Jennifer's right. Lunches are expendable.
          Which reminds me... I haven't had Pizza Shack's Teriyaki Pizza in a 
          long time.
          Now then, since this is all over, we'll be heading back to Earth.
          There's no need to shed any tears. So long, people of the Netherworld!
          (You go Gordon! Take it nice and easy!)
          (No one, not even a demon, can deny a man his Pizza Shack Teriyaki
          Pizza.)
          (Now, if I can just return to Earth and act like nothing ever
          happened...)

Etna    : You know, I could care less about you leaving...
          But, how do you plan on gettin' out of here?

Gordon  : Huh?
          Nooooooooooooooooooooo!! Now that you mention it, our spaceship is in
          pieces!!
          We have no way of getting home!!

Jennifer: ...Gordon, you just realized that?

Thursday: GEEZ LOUISE.

Gordon  : Ohhhhh... My perfect plan...

Laharl  : Too bad, Gordon. Your fate is to be my vassal.

Gordon  : Ugh...!
          Will we ever be able to return to Earth?
          Who will defend the planet now? Will my duty as Defender of Earth go
          unfulfilled...?

Laharl  : ......

Flonne  : Oh, yes. I have an idea, Mr. Gordon.
          Why don't you change from Defender of Earth to Defender of the
          Netherworld?

Gordon  : Wha!? I, I could never do that?

Jennifer: Oh, come on, Gordon. The earth isn't the only world.
          Our duty is to safeguard peace, whether it be on Earth, or in the
          Netherworld.

Gordon  : Hmmmm... But, that title doesn't sound right...

Laharl  : Fine, I'll give you a giid title. In the name of King Laharl, I 
          knight thee, "Slayer of the Netherworld".

Gordon  : Hey, wait! That's not any better...

Laharl  : I promoted you from being a vassal. Quit complaining.

Jennifer: Does that mean... we can stay here, Harlie?

Laharl  : Your unusual abilities... They'll come in handy as I take control
          of the Netherworld.
          *sigh* I'll try to tolerate that sexy body of yours.

Flonne  : *giggle* I never thought I'd hear the word "tolerate" come from his
          mouth.

Etna    : That's as close to acceptance as he gets, right?
          Of course, it could just be that he started liking sexy bodies...

Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL.

Gordon  : It's not well!
          This is a dream! It must be a dream!
          Somebody tell me it's a dream!!


And that's how these people were welcomed into King Laharl's court.
I know I helped the demons get the humans on their side...
But these days, I'm not so concerned about that kind of stuff.
I hope one day all angels, demons, and humans can live happily together,
just as we do.

The end.

Gargo  : Those born as "good-for-nothings' will be worthless forever unless they
         transmigrate.
         But, don't you think that raising them to be their best makes you a
         truly superb mentor?

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

Ghoss  : Are there other Defenders of Earth?

Gordon : Well, not really...

Laharl : I'd be happy if there were. I would never be bored.

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

Zommie : Another Defender of Earth?
         You are just so popular.

Laharl : Of course.

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

After you equip your characters talk to the Dimensional Gate Keeper.


D.Gate
Keeper : Prince, I hear that a hero challenged you to a duel.

Laharl : That's right. I'm on my way to beat him right now.

D.Gate
Keeper : The "Forest of the Dead", right? I will open the gate right now.

Laharl : Hmhmhm... I can't wait to see who this "hero" is.

Jennifer: Hey, Gordon. Could that challenge have been written by Kurtis...?

Gordon  : Kurtis! Now that you mention it, you might be right!

Laharl  : Who's this Kurtis?

Jennifer: Kurtis is the other Defender of Earth.

Etna    : The OTHER Defender of Earth? There's more than one of 'em?

Jennifer: No, the true Defender of Earth is Gordon.
          Kurtis calls himself the Defender of Earth and tries to steal work
          from under us.
          But, as much as I hate to admit it, he has managed to save the earth
          on a few occasions.
          That's why you could say that there are 2 Defender of Earth right 
          now.

Flonne  : Hmmmm. Sounds complicated.

Laharl  : It worked out fine in the end, since one has become Slayer of the
          Netherworld.

Gordon  : "Worked out fine"!? This is NOT fine!!
          I work for the earth, not the Netherworld!!

?????   : (The Overlord! I've finally found you!)
          (Today, I'll fulfill my sworn duty!)
          (But first, I'll test your strength! I'm counting on you, my friends!)

Laharl  : Hm? I sense something nearby.

Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... UNKNOWN BIORHYTHMS DETECTED. DANGER DANGER
          DANGER...

A POSSIBLE STRATEGY:
-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_

Note that this is only a possible strategy. You cn have your own strategies
which suit your style and your characters.

You can use Laharl's Winged Slayer on the left hand six enemies and  
Jennifer's Cosmic Arrow on the other six enemies to decrease their health.
Even the Skulls may die from the Winged Slayer, if it is strong enough.
At least two of them will die.

Then use Thursday's Robo Attack on the other three skulls and finish them off.
If any one remains, then kill them with your other characters.

Then only the Mandrakes will remain with about 300~350 (not exact) those who
were attacked by Winged Slayer and 500~550 (not exact) those who were attacked
by Cosmic Arrow.

Then take care of the Mandrakes in the next turn, or you can still attack
some of them with any of your other characters in the same turn.
Use any Bravehearts on your characters using your mages.

Beware of the specials of the Mandrakes as they do a good amount of damage.

In the next turn, use your specials and kill them off.

?????   : Overlord! Prepare yourself!!

Gordon  : Kurtis!?

?????   : Take thissssssssss!!

Thursday: LOOK OUT, CAPTAIN.

Gordon  : Thursday!
          You're not Kurtis!! Who are you!?
          Are you aware of who you're dealing with!? I am Captain Gordon, 
          Defender of Earth!

Jennifer: Wait, Gordon!

?????   : What? The Defender of Earth?
          What would the Defender of Earth be doing here in the company of the
          Overlord?

Gordon  : Uh, well... It's a complex situation...

Laharl  : He's my vassal. He lost to me in battle, so I made him my slave.
          His new name is Slayer of the Netherworld.

?????   : What was that!? The Defender of Earth is now the Overlord's vassal!?

Gordon  : S, Sir!?

?????   : How shameful... How disgraceful... The Defender of Earth has sunk so
          low...

Gordon  : Hey! You haven't heard the whole story!
          Besides, you haven't even introduced yourself yet!

?????   : ...Me?
          I'm Don Joaquin, the original Defender of Earth...

Gordon  : The original... Defender of Earth...?

Etna    : That ol' man? Sounds fishy to me.

Jennifer: No, it may be true. My father used to tell me about him.
          Hundreds of years ago, the first Defender of Earth left for the
          Netherworld to vanquish the Overlord, and never returned...

Flonne  : But, how is he still alive? Compared to the typical human life span,
          he should have passed away a long time ago.

Laharl  : That's probably his soul.
          He probably couldn't rest in peace until he defeated the Overlord, so
          his soul remained behind.

Flonne  : Why...?

Gordon  : There's only one thing!!
          It's his duty as a hero!

Etna    : He's starting to sound like you, Prince...

Gordon  : I'm so touched!
          The idea of him still struggling to fulfill his duty, transcending 
          time! A true Defender of Earth!!
          I'm proud to follow in his footsteps!!

Etna    : But, I don't think an old man like that could defeat the Prince even
          in a thousand years.

Gordon  : Yeah... I see your point.

Flonne  : But, we have to help him! We can't just leave him like this!

Laharl  : ...Hey, Love Freak. You're not trying to force your beliefs on me 
          again, are you?

Flonne  : Bingo<3
          Next time we run into him, let's lose on purpose.
          That way, he'll finally be satisfied, and his spirit will ascend to
          heaven.

Laharl  : Don't be ridiculous! I have a duty to fulfill, too! I can't lose on
          purpose!

Flonne  : Why? Is it that big a deal?
          Are you that selfish that you can't even save a poor hero's soul?

Laharl  : Shut up! This is between me and him! So, stay out of it!!

Flonne  : ......

Laharl  : ...We're going in after him!

A new enemy here...the Rune Knight and she is pretty strong though.


Coming to the map, it is pretty much straight forward. Deal with the Skulls
AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN. Their Omega Spells can beat the day lights out of you.
If wanted, use cahin throws and kill them off in the first turn only if
possible. If it isnt possible, then you'll be in a serious trouble.

But dont forget to use Brave Heart on your attacking characters. It becomes
pretty much useful, since the enemies all have a HP of about 700~900.
And the Rune knight of ~1400.

Attack and kill the Scarecrow nearest to your base. Then slowly the enemies
come at you and you can kill them off. But asusual the enemy especially the 
Scarecrows' attacks are very powerful. 

Team up on the Rune Knight and defeat her. If you are lucky enough to have
Night sever and other such powerful specials, she can be defeated in one turn,
as I did.

Use chain throws and move at least one of your character to the Geo Symbols.
You'll have to use the characters who have maximum range of throwing, if you
have a wide range of characters to select from.
You'll clearly have to use all your ten characters for this. Take more turns,
if you cant do it in one turn. But in that case, put a character who can 
dodge well in the front.

After the chain throw, in the consequent turns, move the characters you
have used in the chain throw back towards the base panel and finally into the 
base panel.

Then when you reach the Geo Symbols, first of all destroy the No lifting one.
Then use the recovery 40% by standing on any of the Geo panels before
removing the recovery symbols. Then after you regain your full health,
lift the others including the Recovery 20% ones and throw them aside.

Then the map becomes much easier. Deal with the enemies in the usual fashion.
Most probably the character you have used for destroying the Geo symbols can
solo the complete map.

Deal with the enemies one by one. If it is extremely necessary, then you can 
again go back to the symbols, place the Recovery symbols on the panels and 
heal yourself and return. But remember to REMOVE them once you complete your 
work.

Thus it will be very easily completed...though not exactly easy.

It will take a very long time to complete solo too.

(.)-----------------------------------------------------------------(.)

NOTE:-
Don Joaquin will be removed from the map, once you clear it.


There are more number of enemies here and with those enemies there is also the 
Enemy Boost X6 spread all over the map. ooh!

So first use chain throws and reach the Geo Symbols and make sure that you
destroy at least one if not two. But try to destroy both of them in the first
turn itself.

Now that the Symbols are destroyed its an usual map with usual enemies and the
only change is their levels. They are all above Lvl.40. So take care.

But done forget to pull back your characters whom you have used in the chain 
throw back to the base panel, if you cant destroy the Geo Symbols in the first
turn itself. Once the Geo Symbols are destroyed, you can pull them out and deal
with the enemies.

The boss is not at all a big problem, if you use ranged attacks and also he is
underlevelled when compared to the enemies too.

But it may become a bit of a difficult map, if you are not at above ~50+.
So, you may need to level up your characters a bit before attempting this map.

Also dont forget to use specials like Winged slayer, Usagi Drop, Cosmic Arrow
etc.

Flonne     : Laharl! Why!? Why didn't you lose!?
             I know that you have a kind heart inside!
             Why...?

Laharl     : ...You're starting to get annoying. I'm a demon. There was never
             any kindness in my heart.
             You were wrong about me. Sorry to disappoint you.

Flonne     : --------!!
             You've let me down, Laharl! You're the worst...

Don Joaquin: It's okay, little girl...


Flonne     : Huh...?

Don Joaquin: It's all okay. I'm satisfied now...

Flonne     : ...What do you mean?

Don Joaquin: It may be hard for you to understand, but we heroes live a certain
             way, and we die a certain way, too.
             I was once known as the Defender of Earth, but I grew old, died,
             and have existed as a mere soul...
             I could no longer live as a hero, nor could I die as one; I just
             wandered in the Netherworld...
             How pathetic I felt...
             But, as long last, I was able to fight again as Defender of Earth.
             I wasn't able to win, but I have no regrets. In fact, I feel as if
             a great weight has been lifted from my shoulders.
             It's all thanks to this kid Overlord, because he fought me with
             all his might.
             Now, I can finally rest in peace.
             ...Thank you.

Laharl     : Hmph. What kind of hero thanks an Overlord?
             ...I was just fulfilling my own duty.

Thursday   : BEEP... BLIP BEEP...

Don Joaquin: Young Defender of Earth, you have wonderful friends.
             If I had friends like that, maybe things would have been 
             different.
             ...This shall be my final act as Defender of Earth.
             Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh...!!

Thursday   : BEEP... BEEP BLIP BEEP...

Jennifer   : Thursday!! How can this be!? His circuit is fixed!!

Gordon     : ...Which means!!

Thursday   : BEEP BLIP BEEP... GOOD MORNING, CAPTAIN GORDON, JENNIFER.

Gordon     : Ohh, Thursday!!

Jennifer   : Ahh, thank goodness!

Jennifer   : Thank you so much! How can we repay you...?

Don Joaquin: No, it was my fault that this happened in the first place... I
             don't need to be thanked...
             Farewell, young Defenders of Earth. Remember that spirit inside
             you...

Gordon     : I salute you, Don Joaquin, the original Defender of Earth!!

Laharl     : ...Maybe there are some decent humans out there, after all.

Etna       : It looks like you're getting the hang of being Overlord, aren't ya,
             Prince?

Laharl     : Of course. Who do you think I am? I'm the great King Laharl.

Flonne     : Umm, Laharl... I'm sorry that I jumped to conclusions and said such
             horrible things...

Laharl     : That's right! You said I'm "the worst...", didn't you?
             What were you gonna say next? "The worst..." what?

Flonne     : Uh... W, Well...

Gordon     : I'd like to hear the answer to that, too.

Jennifer   : Me, too.

Etna       : What kind of filthy language was about to escape those
             love-preaching lips?

Thursday   : BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... NOW CALCULATING, NOW CALCULATING...

Flonne     : Nooooooo!!

Etna       : Ah, she destroyed the evidence.

Jennifer   : Ahh! Thursday!!

Gordon     : Oh my god! Are you okay, Thursday!!

Laharl     : ...Wicked little angel.

Etna       : Yep. Worse than a demon.

Flonne     : N, No, I'm not...!

Flonne  : What was that?

Etna    : Felt like an earthquake, but they barely ever happen around here.

Laharl  : But whenever there's one, something big always happens.
          Hmhmhm... I wonder what catastrophe will happen this time.

Prinny  : P, Prince! Several giant objects have appeared at the Stellar 
          Graveyard, dood!

Laharl  : That was quick.
          ...How many?

Prinny
Squad   : Dood, there're billions of 'em!

Gordon  : You hear that, Jennifer? The EDF is here to save us!
          We can go home!

Jennifer: Wait, Gordon. We can't be so sure.
          Even if it was the EDF, why would they send so many ships?

Gordon  : Oh, come on. Why are you being so pessimistic? It's not like you.

Etna    : Well, why don't we go check it out?

Flonne  : I agree. Sitting here won't do any good.

Laharl  : Alright then! To the Stellar Graveyard!


TALK TO EVERYONE IN THE CASTLE.


Goleck : What could these unidentified objects be? Space battlecruisers? Giant
         robots!?

Etna   : Well... The way things have been going lately, they could be just about
         anything, I'd say.

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

Manty  : It's been awhile since the last natural disaster. Let's see, there 
         was...
         The time when the King was so happy that the Queen accepted his 
         proposal, he knocked over a few mountains...
         The time when the King was so thrilled that the Prince was born, he
         froze the ocean...
         And the time when the King was so sad because of the Queen's passing,
         he split the earth in two...

Flonne : ...Wouldn't you consider those to be artificial disasters...?

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

Dratti : Is it me, or are the humans overshadowing you, Prince?

Laharl : N, No, they're not! It's just you!

Dratti : ...Let's hope so.

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

Gargo  : I've always loved sci-fi stories...

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

Ghoss  : Since when was the Netherworld open to the public?

Laharl : Who cares? It's more fun this way.

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

Zommie : Those giant, unidentified objects are in the "Stellar Graveyard II".
         Since we don't know what's there, do whatever tickles your fancy.

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

After equipping your characters with new weapons or after buying items from the
shop or doing some thing in the Dark Assembly like Promotion Exam or passing
some bill, talk to the Diemnsional Gate keeper.

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

D.Gate
Keeper : We have detected giant objects in the "Stellar Graveyard II".
         I feel a great power... Prince, be careful.

Laharl : There's no power greater than mine. Just relax and wait for my return.

Jennifer   : Gordon, we've been used...

Gordon     : Used? what do you mean, Jennifer?

Jennifer   : They asked us to defeat the Overlord, but their true purpose was to
             secure a route to the Netherworld...

EDF Soldier: Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth... You are to be terminated...

A pretty straight forward stage again. Just dont stand on the Geo Panels which 
cause Ally Damage 20%. And deal with the enemies now. But dont expect that the
Earth's soldiers will be weak. They use guns and they are NOT weak.

Just kill them one by one and clear the stage. But the officer is higher 
levelled and has summat more HP, though not much higher than the other enemies.

Etna    : Yeah, yeah. Calm down.

Kurtis  : MY goal was to defeat you, Gordon, but it seems I've overestimated you

Gordon  : Huh!? What do you mean!?

Kurtis  : I assumed that you completed your mission and defeated the Overlord.
          I came here to settle things with you.
          But, look at the facts. You've failed your mission, and even worse,
          you've become the Overlord's slave.

So, there is Silence Geo Panels and...WHAT IS THIS?!! Ally Damage 100% !!!
This is really too much. Ally Damage 100%. It implies that one turn is enough
to die in this map, if you even by chance stand on those green panels and end
your turn.

So, its simple enough. Dont stand on the Green Geo panels and then it means 
that you have to stand on the Red Geopanels which mean Silence (No specials
allowed). Silence seems better than death.


And if you dont even want Silence, then you can throw the Silence Geo Symbol,
which is far from your base, on to the Green panels.
This can be easily accomplished in the second or the third turns without the
use of chain throws. This seems much better.

But the Green Geo Symbols are just 'nearly' impossible to destroy. If you
observe, you'll find that they are on the Green Geo Panels and so, if you are
unsuccessful in destroying them in the first turn, then you'll be dead in the
next turn.

So, destroying the Green Geo Symbols is not a good idea at all. So, be on the
Red Geo panels and defat all the enemies with your normal attacks.

Here your Archers, Scouts and Mages/Skulls will help you.


CONCLUSION:
Just kill the enemies off with the normal attacks and clear the stage, or 
throw the Silence Geo symbol on the Green panels and deal with the enemies.

The second must be preferred because the enemies on the green geo panels will
be affected with the Silence in that case.

Wow!! Another invincibility map. But this has more strategy involved...

The Ally Damage 20% is another new thing introduced here. You may think that
Invincibility saves you from every damage. But think again...It doesnt.

You gotta remove the Ally Damage 20% from the Red Geo panels. So you better
throw it on an enemy.

You'll have to use all your characters on the first turn to make a chain throw.
You may or may not reach the Ally Dmage 20% symbols though. But never mind,
since the Invincibility will save you to some extent.

So throw the Ally Damage 20% onto an enemy and then similarly, throw the 
Enemy Boost+50 too, on an enemy.

Then ENJOY!!!
Feel free to be careless...but not enough so as to go onto the green panels.

Note that BEFORE attacking the enemies, THROW THEM onto the green panels.
Otherwise, they wont be killed.

Kill the enemies and clear the stage with ease.

A summat difficult stage. The enemies might be same, but their equip is
different. They are far more powerful than they were before.

So just you gotta level up. About 55~60 is enough. Use 9-1 for 3x3 attackers.
If they cant kill all the enemies at once, then use Brave hearts on them and
then attack the enemies. Thus level them to 55~65.

For others use the 5-3 to get to atleast 40+ if they are less than that. 
For the ones above 40 and less than 50, you must manually level them up at
any stage you like the most for Exp.

When you are sufficiently levelled attempt the stage.

First you must know that the enemies are not to be underestimated. Heal very
frequently. When you have below 1000 HP heal yourself. Else...you'll DIE.
The boss is not a big problem at all. He'll mostly use only his normal attacks
and they cause a damage of about 300~400. Kepp it in mind and you needn't worry
much on the boss. The main enemies who are to be quickly eliminated are the 
ones who are Lvl.48 and the ones who have guns. 

They do a massive amount of damage with their combos. Use your specials on the 
enemies to eliminate them quickly. Protect your Cleric if you can, while she
is on the battle field.

Coming to the boss, just use some Bullet storm and a Night Sever to reduce his
health drastically. So here, your level plays a prominent role. Take some
2-3 turns to defeat him. 

Save your Laharl and Plenair at all costs. But dont lose all your characters 
just to save them. Just try your best to save them from dying. They can help
you a lot with their specials.

Feel free to exploit this stage with a theif (Space Pirate). I have not tried
it though. I didnt feel like stealing their weapons. Fighting with the real
enemies is much more cooler.

Kurtis  : We will now begin a full-scale attack with over 2 million battleships.

Jennifer: Ah!!

Kurtis  : Your father awaits you, Jennifer. Come with me.

Gordon  : Father...? I thought her parents passed away when she was a child...

Jennifer: ......

Kurtis  : What, you didn't know?
          She is General Carter's foster child.

Gordon  : What!?

Jennifer: ......
          ...I'm sorry, Gordon.
          What Kurtis said is true. I was adopted by General Carter and raised
          as his child.
          He was a kind man. I always believed that he loved me...
          But, that couldn't have been further from the truth...
          He raised me only so he could use me...

Kurtis  : If you're going to complain about your father, tell him yourself...
          My orders are simply to bring you back alive.

Jennifer: He wants to use me again...?
          ......
          ...Hahah... It doesn't matter anymore...

Gordon  : Wait! Jennifer, don't go!
          You're the assistant of Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth, remember!?
          Have you forgotten our sworn duty!?

Jennifer: ......

Etna    : Um, didn't you dismiss her?

Gordon  : Shut up! Don't dig up the past! I retracted that!!
          Jennifer! It doesn't matter if you're Carter's daughter or not!
          As the assistant to the Defender of Earth, listen to your heart!
          What is right!? What do you believe in!? And what will you do right
          now!?

Jennifer: Gordon...

Kurtis  : Enough talk.
          Gordon, Overlord...
          I'd like to settle this once and for all. If you want Jennifer back,
          then find a way aboard the Gargantua.
          Until then... See ya.

Gordon  : Jennifer!!
          Jenniferrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...!!!!

Etna   : Beats me. I don't understand how humans think.

Gordon : I'm back!

Laharl : How'd it go, Gordon?

Gordon : Easy, as expected.
         Using Thursday's navigation system, I was able to lock on to the

Ok so...dont be afraid of anything. Just look at the Stats of the 6 guns and 
think. Could it be that, you have to destroy them? The answer is, fortunately,
NO!!

So what you should is very simple. When I say very simple, I mean VERY simple.

Just using chain throws, throw your character "near" the yellow panel at the
far end of the map. (Just opposite to your Base panel, at the far end.)
Then make your character walk to it (stand on it). For this, a 3 charactered 
chain throw is sufficient.

Voila!!

S T A G E  C L E A R 
-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-

You needn't even HEAL.

You can exploit this stage as much as you can. For example you can replay this
as many times as you can and gain items from the Bonus list.
The Bonus list is random and so, each time, you play this stage you get an item
or money or Exp.

This stage is removed after you complete the "Bridge" stage. So do this before
you play that stage. I'll remind you again before that stage.

          dreams anymore.

Jennifer: K, Kurtis! That thing in your hand...!

Kurtis  : You guessed it. Very good, professor.
          You must know what it does, then.

Jennifer: Stop it, Kurtis! You call yourself human!?

Kurtis  : Do I? I lost 70% of my body, and something even more dear to me in an
          incident...
          Maybe I lost my sense of humanity in that time, too...
          It's time to sleep. Sweet dreams...

Jennifer: Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!



Gordon  : Hm!? That scream!!

Flonne  : It's Miss Jennifer!

Etna    : It's coming from that way.

Laharl  : Let's go!

EDF 
Soldier : *muffled breathing*

Laharl  : More humans... *sigh* They just don't learn, do they?

Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... THEY ARE NOT HUMAN. LIFE SIGNS 0.00000...

Gordon  : Everyone, be careful!!
          These are super-human androids constructed by Kurtis!

Laharl  : Super...

Etna    : Human...

Flonne  : Androids...?

Gordon  : That's right! Kurtis is a brilliant scientist, rivaling even 
          Jennifer!!
          But he's been conducting fearful research, all in the name of 
          humanity!
          !!! 
          Could that scream be...!?
          No! He's attempting to modify Jennifer!

Laharl  : He's attempting...

Etna    : To modify...

Flonne  : Jennifer...?

Gordon  : Hey! Stop imagining weird things!
          We have to save Jennifer!!

So you're gonna face new type of enemies here. They are the Super Human Androids
...the Cyborgs!!!

I dont even want to tell anything. Its just easy. Only 6 enemies that too.
Just use your specials and kill them offff!!

Just that will be enough. But its good to attack multiple enemies at a time.

Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP...
          CAPTIAN GORDON, INCOMING MESSAGE FROM GENERAL CARTER.

Gordon  : From Carter!?
          Okay, Thursday. Open a communication channel.

...Fffff...fffffff...

Gordon  : Carter!!

G.Carter: Muhahahaha!! You're being a sore loser, Gordon.

Gordon  : Of course! I can't let a villain like you win, for the sake of Earth!
          I swear by the name "Defender of Earth", Carter! I will defeat you!!

G.Carter: ...You just don't get it, do you? This invasion IS for the sake
          of Earth.

Gordon  : What!?

G.Carter: As you know, the earth is confronting a serious crisis.
          The room in population, the rise in crime, the shortage of 
          natural resources... The human race can't survive much longer.
          It would require an astronomical budget merely to find a new
          home for the people of Earth.
          That's why taking over the Netherworld is such a simple and
          economical solution!

Laharl  : Hmmm... Your efforts are admirable. You'd make a great demon.
          But there wouldn't be a crisis in the first place if you humans
          weren't so stupid.
          As the Overlord of the Netherworld, let me say just one thing...
          Clean up your own damn mess!!

G.Carter: Ugh...! You foul-mouthed little runt...!

Gordon  : I have something to add to that! General Carter, I am beyond angry!
          Give back my Jennifer, Chrome-dome!!

G.Carter: Why you...! If you can't play nice...
          ...then neither will I! I'll crush you for the sake of earth's
          future! Prepare yourselves!

Another easy battle. I dunno why they put so easy battle at this time of the 
game. Just kill the Recruits using some specials and wait for the Cyborgs
and the Psi-Soldier to come at you. Then use your specials again and kill them.

But be careful of the Psi-soldier and his Lght saber. You can steal it, if you
want it.

Gordon: Kurtis!!

Kurtis: Glad you could make it, Gordon.
        I knew the hordes of security guard wouldn't be enough to stop you.
        I thought you might like to know... It's been 5 years since I lost my
        wife and daughter... And with them, my soul...

Laharl: Hey, he's giving us his life story.

Etna  : Should we... attack now?

Flonne: No, we have to listen! the rival always has a tragic past.

Kurtis: ...May I continue?

Flonne: Oh, please, by all means.

Kurtis: As I was saying... It's been 5 years since I lost my wife and 
        daughter... And with them, my soul...
        Back then, I was a top scientist, burning with a passion to save the
        earth...
        If it wasn't for that fateful incident...

Gordon: Five years ago...?

Kurtis: As a result of the explosion in the lab, I lost my family and 70% of
        my body.
        A group of anti-space development terrorists were to blame...

Gordon: You mean your wife and daughter were victims of that incident?

Kurtis: That's right... You caught the culprits, but what comfort would that be
        to me?
        I swore to my wife and child! Since the Defender of Earth couldn't do
        his job, I would take his place!
        And I became a cyborg to do just that!
        what good is the Defender of Earth if he can't save innocent people!?
        A true defender would do anything in his power to save as many people
        as possible!
        I can't accept anything less!
        I will defeat you, Gordon! And claim the title of true Defender of 
        Earth!
        That is the only path left to me!

Gordon: So that's it... I didn't know you had such a past, Kurtis.
        It was all due to my failings.
        ...Forgive me.
        But, what you're doing now, Kurtis, is not the right way!

Kurtis: What!? I'm fighting for the sake of humanity!!

Gordon: Invading the Netherworld might save the earth...
        ...but it would require many sacrifices! Is that what you want!? Is 
        that really for the sake of Earth!?
        You should know best what it feels like to be a victim, Kurtis!
        What will your wife and daughter think, up in heaven!?

Kurtis: ----------!!

Gordon: I am the Defender of Earth!
        My duty is to right what is wrong! Even if it means that I must face a
        comrade-in-arms!
        I don't want to fight you, but this is for your own good!
        Here I come, comrade!! Behold the true spirit of a defender!!

NOTE:
Dump your pocket with Healing items and SP recovering items.


I say this will not be an easy stage at all. So level upto 70-75, if you are 
solo-ing. Else, Level upto 60~65+.

The enemies are on three sides. 3 enemies on three sides and the Rival boss,
Kurtis on the other side.

But the main thing is...the entire map has Enemy Boost+150.
So obviously, what you gotta do is that, you have to remove the Geo symbols
somehow. So why not throw them on the enemies? Throw one of your character 
near the Geo symbol, lift it and throw it on an enemy. Repeat this to all the
three Geo symbols on the three sides.

So six of your characters' turn has ended. Bring out your strong characters now
and start killing the enemies. Try to go to one side of the map. I preferred
left. Kill as many enemies as you can on that side in the first turn. Atleast
damage them. Concentrate on the Psi-soldier and stay as far as you can from him.
His hurricane slash can do a decent amount of damage.

Also, you have your characters on the other two sides too, right? (The ones you
have used to destroy the Geo symbols.)
In the second turn, using those characters, try to throw the enemies on the
other sides, away from your strong characters, who are on one side.
Then they wont come at your strong characters and you can concentrate on one
side.

But kurtis will come at you. So, by the time Kurtis comes very near to you,
kill all the three enemies on any one side, and stay there.

As he nears you, use your specials. He must be gone in 2-3 turns at the most.
Use Nightsever and such Specials.

With Kurtis gone, you can happily kill the other enemies too. Use your cleric
to heal. My greatest advantage, here was, I made my Laharl learn Giga Heal.
So it became much easier for me.

Kurtis: W, Well done...
        You've... proven me wrong...
        I felt the true defender's spirit... the strength of your 
        determination... even in this mechanical body...
        I lost... Now, finish me...

Laharl: Okay.

Etna  : We'll kill you in one painless blow<3

Flonne: You can't!

Gordon: Kurtis, our battle has already ended.
        You tried to do what you thought was right. It's just that your sorrow
        drove you to do it in the wrong way...
        That's why I want you to fight by my side, as a comrade... How about
        it?

Kurtis: Gordon...

Laharl: I could use a skilled person like you as one of my vassals.

Kurtis: Heh... The Overlord's vassal... That doesn't sound too bad.
        But... it seems that my body needs to recharge... I must sleep for 
        awhile...
        Gordon... Be careful of... Jennifer...

Gordon: Kurtis!
        Be careful of Jennifer...? What does he mean by that?

Laharl: Be careful...

Etna  : Of...

Flonne: Jennifer...?


Laharl: ...Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

          That's right! I have installed a neural override device!

          Owwwwwwwwwwwww...

Etna    : Geez, you're weak...

Laharl  : Gordon... Maybe you're not cut out to be a hero.

G.Carter: Muhahahaha!! What do you think of that!?
          Jennifer is a master of the ancient martial art, Kung Fu!

Gordon  : What!? I never knew that!!

G.Carter: You never asked.

Gordon  : That explains it. So, what am I supposed to do?
          No way could I use my full fighting potential against Jennifer!

Etna    : You'd lose anyways, man.

Laharl  : How about we just blow up the entire ship?

Flonne  : Oh no you don't! I already claimed this ship!

Laharl  : I, I see... Well, so much for that idea...

Gordon  : Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth, facing his greatest challenge 
          ever...!!

Kurtis  : How pathetic, Gordon!! What happened to that spirit you were bragging
          about!?

Gordon  : Kurtis!! You're better already!?

Kurtis  : Hmph... Your voice woke my heart up to the ideals I forgot long ago.
          Stand aside...! Let me show you MY defender spirit!

G.Carter: Jennifer! Kill that traitor first!

Jennifer: Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!

Kurtis  : Uoohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!
          Gordon...! You called me a comrade...!
          I... I looked up to you...
          That's why I became a scientist in the first place... Funny, isn't it?
          How did things end up like this? If only I had realized sooner...
          No... It's enough that I realized it in the end. I bet they're smiling
          down on me from heaven...

G.Carter: Jennifer! Stop wasting your time with that miserable traitor!
          Curse you all!! I'll just blow you all up and Jennifer, too!
          In case of an event like this, I planted a bomb inside the neural
          override device!
          Muhahahaha!! Now, die!

Kurtis  : I made that device! And I know its weakness!

Jennifer: Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!

Kurtis  : Jennifer! I can't let you die here!
          Uoohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!

Gordon  : Kurtiiiiiiisssssssssss!!

Kurtis  : Hey Gordon... Do you ever think I could be a true Defender of 
          Earth...?

Gordon  : Yeah...! Yeah! Of course you could be!!
          What am I saying... You ARE a true Defender of Earth!!

Kurtis  : Heh... Thanks, Gordon...
          I won't forget the defender spirit... you showed... me...

Gordon  : I should be the one thanking you...
          ...Kurtis. You will be known as the 38th Defender of Earth.

Laharl  : ...Heed my words, Death. I command you in the name of King Laharl.
          Lead the soul of Kurtis, Defender of Earth, to his family's side...

Etna    : Prince...

Flonne  : Laharl...

Laharl  : ...Don't say a word. As the Overlord of the Netherworld, I was just
          paying homage to a true hero.
          That's all...

Flonne  : Yes...
          I understand.

Gordon  : Carter! I'll never forgive you!!

G.Carter: *gasp*

Jennifer: Wait, Gordon!

Gordon  : Jennifer! You're back to normal!?

Jennifer: Yes... I was conscious the entire time I was being controlled...
          Because of me, Kurtis...

Gordon  : He did what he thought was right. I'm sure he has no regrets...
          And now, his spirit will burn brightly in your heart.

Jennifer: Yeah... You're right.

Gordon  : Jennifer, you are no longer my assistant.
          Fight alongside me as an equal...
          ...as a Defender of Earth!!

Jennifer: ...Thank you, Gordon.
          I understand. Let's forget about the past and concentrate on the 
          present.

G.Carter: W, Wait, Jennifer! I'm your father! Have you forgotten everything
          I've done for you!?

Jennifer: No, I haven't... If you hadn't taken me in back then, I might not be
          here today...
          I loved you, and believed in you...
          But, we were never a true family to begin with...
          You raised me only so you could manipulate me!
          I'll never call you "father" again! Prepare yourself, Carter!

G.Carter: Tch...! You ungrateful little...!
          That's it! Die!!

Angel   : ......

Flonne  : A Celestial Host!? Why...!? Why are angels helping HIM...!?

Laharl  : Apparently, someone's been pulling strings from behind the scenes.

Etna    : Celestia's involved, huh? It just keeps getting better, Prince.

Flonne  : It can't be... Is this the will of the Seraph...?

some poison attacks too. So be careful and immediately heal them.

          I can't believe it...! Demons are that powerful...!?
          His information was completely wrong!
          Damn him...! Was he trying to drive humanity into extinction from the
          beginning...?

Mid-Boss: Who is "he"?

G.Carter: W, Who are you!?

Mid-Boss: No matter how advanced your technology is, it is impossible to
          infiltrate the Netherworld without help.
          Now answer. Who is behind this?

G.Carter: I, I can't...

Mid-Boss: ...If you do not say, I will kill you.

G.Carter: *gulp* It, It's a man with white wings!
          I'm innocent! I, I just wanted to save the earth!

Mid-Boss: ...I see.
          Foolish human. You cannot save the earth.
          How do you intend to save all of mankind when you cannot even save
          your daughter?
          You have sacrificed the lives of others to satisfy your own ego.
          Until you realize that... you will be plagued by nightmares.
          We will be watching you.
          (Oh... Why am I so awesome?)


Gordon  : Thank you, Kurtis... I will never forget you.
          I swear to you that I will fight with both our strength for the sake
          of humanity!
          No, not just for humanity! For every living creature!!

Jennifer: I will, too, Kurtis... You saved my life. I shall repay you by
          dedicating it to world peace...
          ...and to preventing others from becoming victims like you and your
          family.

Flonne  : ......

Laharl  : Flonne...?

Flonne  : ...I'm going back to Celestia.

Laharl  : What...!?

Flonne  : I must return to find out the Seraph's true intentions!

Etna    : Seems like one problem leads to another!
          We found out that the humans were being manipulated by the angels!
          Now, Flonne wants to return to Celestia and to go face to face with
          the Seraph himself!
          What awaits her there?
          Will the Archangel's true intent be finally revealed!?

Flonne  : Etna's acting all serious...

Gordon  : Could this be a sign of terrible things to come?

Jennifer: It's the end of the world!

""After learning that Celestia was behind the incident with the Earth Defense
  Force, I made up my mind to go back to Celestia to ask the Seraph about it
  directly.

  The Netherworld.
  Celestia.
  The human world.

  I never imagined that this war, which involved the entire universe, would
  come to such an unexpected end...""




Laharl  : ...Your mind's made up?

Flonne  : Yes.
          I must speak with the Seraph and find out what has been happening in
          Celestia...

Laharl  : Do you realize that you may have to face him as an enemy?

Flonne  : Face Master Lamington as my enemy...?

Etna    : He's the head of Celestia, right?
          We know that someone in Celestia has been helping the EDF. He must
          have known about it.

Jennifer: I agree. I think it's very possible that he's even the mastermind.

Laharl  : Wasn't he the one who ordered you to go to the Netherworld in the
          first place? ...To assassinate my old man?

Gordon  : What!? An angel ordering an assassination? That's just wrong! He's 
          guilty, without a doubt!!

Flonne  : No, he's not!

Laharl  : Can you say that for sure?

Flonne  : ...I believe in Master Lamington.

Laharl  : ......
          ...I see.
          Alright, then. Let's get going.

Flonne  : ...?

Laharl  : It's a good opportunity for me to check out this so-called Seraph; I'm
          going with ya.

Flonne  : Laharl...

Etna    : Geez Prince, why don't you just admit it?
          "I'm worried about Flonne, so I'm gonna go with her!"
          What's so hard about that, huh?

Laharl  : F, Fool! That's far from the truth...!

Jennifer: Now, now. We all feel the same way, Harlie.

Gordon  : Jennifer's right. As the Defender of Earth, I cannot let my comrade go
          alone.

Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... WE ARE COMRADES. WE GO TOGETHER. END OF
          DISCUSSION.

Laharl  : ...Hmph. Bunch of fools.

Flonne  : Everybody...
          ...Thank you.

Talk to everyone in the castle. Be sure to check Etna's Diary and read all
the entries. You'll receive a Testament if you do so. It is not only a great
equip, but it also allows you to unlock Etns Mode after you beat the game.

Also talk to Ghoss for Diabolic Sword.



Goleck  : The Prinnies were talking about "multiple endings"...

Laharl  : ...Huh? Endings to what?

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

Manty  : You're going to Celestia, I hear. Bring back some gifts for us!

Laharl : Idiot. It's not a vacation.

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

Dratti : You've changed a lot, doing things for the sake of others.

Laharl : Sh, Shut up! I only do things for my own sake!

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

Gargo  : So if humans can come here, that means we can go there, right?

Laharl : Hmmm... Now that you mention it...

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

Ghoss  : At last, the final battle. I'll give you a worthy present.

YOU GET A DIABOLIC SWORD!!

Ghoss  : Have a nice trip.

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

Zommie : What will happen in the end, Prince? I can't wait to find out<3

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

After you equip your character with the best equips you have, talk to the 
Dimensional Gatekeeper. Remember to save your game in a different slot too, 
if you want.
Also do any stuff you consider necessary in the  Dark assemblym like passing
some Eyewear inventory bills etc.

Its better to equip Laharl with the Testament and the Diabloic Sword. For others
the easiest thing is to make your Product rank as high as possible and get the
best weapons you can buy and go into them through the item world for about 10
floors and subdue any good specialists you may find.

Then level up to 65~75 and it'll be enough.

Laharl  : So, this is the entrance to Celestia...

Flonne  : It is said that one of the former Seraphs had this gate constructed to
          cut off the Netherworld from Celestia.
          That's why it can only be opened by the residents of Celestia.


Etna    : Hmph! That's not fair.

Flonne  : Okay, I'm going to open the gate. Is everybody ready?


Mid-Boss: ...Bonjour, everyone. It is a pleasure to see you here.

Flonne  : Oh, it's you, Mr. Mid-Boss.

Laharl  : Weren't you saying earlier that only Celestians can open this gate?

Flonne  : Oh... Um... That's strange.

Mid-Boss: *chuckle* It has been thousands of years since a demon other than
          moi has passed through this gate.

Gordon  : Aha! It's all clear to me now! You're an evil henchman who's been
          hired by the Seraph!

Mid-Boss: Bzzzt! Wrong.

Jennifer: I know! You're an angel in disguise!

Mid-Boss: Bzzzt! Another wrong answer.
          You all have very active imaginations. But I, the Dark Adonis, just
          happened to be passing by... Nothing more.

Laharl  : Hmph... So, Dark Adonis, why is it that you're in Celestia?

Mid-Boss: I am here to test your resolve.

Laharl  : What...?

Mid-Boss: From this point on, you will face challenges unlike anything you have
          experienced before.
          Whether or not you can emerge victorious... I would like to see with
          my own eyes.

Laharl  : But what does that have to do with you? Why do you care!? Answer me!

Mid-Boss: Hmhmhm... We have talked long enough.
          Show me what you are capable of!

So the stage is covered with Exp+100, so thats very cool. That makes this a good
levelling place.

Also the enemies are new - Strigoi. They are just like Maderas to look at.
The enemy Levels are high too. The mid Boss is...lvl.70 !!! If only we could
capture him... But can we? We CAN'T! :(

So this is basically a very easy stage. Just four enemies to tackle. The
Strigois have a HP of 1500~1700 and the Mid boss has ~5000. So you gotta have 
some VERY powerful attacks to kill them quickly. Lets see if the new Diabolic
sword can do anything.

So first take care of the Strigois and then the Mid Boss. First kill the one
behind your base, then the others and then the Mid Boss. The diabolic sword
can work wonders here.

Mid-Boss: *chuckle* Your teamwork is impressive. I commend you for having come
          so far.

Laharl  : Huh? where's the usual pathetic excuse of yours?

Mid-Boss: Demons, angels, humans... Rather than learn about each other, they
          use words such as "good" and "evil" to differentiate themselves.
          ...That is the sad truth.

Flonne  : (Wait... That reminds me of something Master Lamington once said to 
          me...)

Mid-Boss: However, through our battle, you have proved to me...
          ...that regardless of our differences, all creatures can become one
          in spirit.
          As long as you bear that in mind, I am sure you can overcome any
          ordeal.

Etna    : Uh, Prince... Something's definitely wrong. Mid-Boss is acting all
          serious!

Laharl  : Y, Yeah! This must be a trap of some sort!
          Who are you, really!?

Mid-Boss: Hmhmhm... As I said, I am the Dark Adonis.
          Farewell! Haaahahahaha!!

Laharl  : So... What was that all about?

Etna    : Beats me...

Flonne  : I think Mr. Mid-Boss is trying to encourage us in his own way.

Gordon  : He is a true rival, indeed.

Jennifer: Oh, the beauty of friendship between rivals...!

Laharl  : ...Were we all listening to the same conversation?

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

Vulcanus: Master Lamington! Master Lamington, we have an emergency!

Seraph  : What is the matter?

Vulcanus: That traitor Flonne has begun her invasion of Celestia, leading a
          battalion of demons!!

Seraph  : ...The day has finally come.

Vulcanus: We are prepared to intercept the demons! I will lead the troops
          myself. With your permission, of course...

Seraph  : ...Very well. I shall leave the matter to you.
          But, I want them captured unharmed. Do you understand?

Vulcanus: Yes, sir!
          (...Captured?)
          (Nonsense! I will kill them amidst the confusion!)
          (It is only a matter of time before I become a god!)
          (And that is when I, Vulcanus, shall establish absolute peace in the
          universe!)

Flonne  : The Celestial hosts...!

Celestial Host: Target confirmed. Proceeding as ordered.

Laharl  : Hmph... Are these your fellow Celestians?

Flonne  : Yes, but they are full-fledged angels.

Etna    : I don't think they're here to give you a warm welcome back, though.

Celestial Host: Angel Trainee Flonne. By order of Archangel Vulcanus, you are
                to be executed for treason.

Flonne  : Wait, please! I haven't committed treason! It's all a 
          misunderstanding! Master Vulcanus is mistaken!

Celestial Host: Your objections are meaningless. You are a traitor and must be
                executed.

Flonne  : Please let me see the Seraph! I know he will straighten everything
          out!

Celestial Host: Request denied. We were given no such orders.
                Our orders are to execute Angel Trainee Flonne and all that
                assist her.

Flonne  : I beg you! Listen to me...!

Laharl  : Flonne, don't waste your breath.

Etna    : Yeah. These morons haven't listened to a word you've said.

Flonne  : But, I... I can't fight...

Laharl  : What happened to all that determination of yours?
          If you're just gonna give up, then why did you bother to come?

Jennifer: Harlie... You're being too harsh on her...

Gordon  : Jennifer's right! As a defender, I cannot tolerate such treatment of a
          lady...

Flonne  : ...It's okay. Laharl is right.
          I thought I had made up my mind...
          But once I faced the reality of the situation, I...
          ...No, I can't be like this!
          I'm sorry. I'm alright now!
          Thank you, Laharl.

Laharl  : Just don't waste my time with any more talk of giving up, or else I'm
          outta here.

Flonne  : I understand.

Laharl  : Hmph... Then, let's hurry up and kick some angel butt!

Flonne  : Okay!

Celestial Host: You have demonstrated resistance. The use of deadly force is
                authorized against all opposition.

Laharl  : Be my guest. Show me what you've got!



?????   : The battle has begun...

Seraph  : Our task is nearly complete.

?????   : Yes... We have made them come all this way, without the slightest
          explanation...

Seraph  : We will surely be punished for our actions.

?????   : *chuckle* I have already received my punishment.
          But, it is for that reason that the future is now in their hands. I
          should be thankful.

Seraph  : ...Will they prevail?

Yuck! Warp Symbols!!! Now its just upto you whether you care to destroy them
with Geo chains or just leave them like that and solo the map.

I preferred not to destroy them. It'd be more fun that way. But when I got the
chance, I destroyed them. 

Just a piece of cake, if you have good equips and if you can do 1000~1500
damage in normal attacks. About Lvl.70 is enough too.

Flonne  : Master Vulcanus...!

Etna    : WHAT!? Don't tell me HE'S an angel!

Jennifer: You're got to be kidding! No matter how you look at it, that's the
          face of a villain!

Laharl  : True. You look so evil, it's a pity that you're an angel.

Vulcanus: Silence! How dare you look at my glorious face and call me a villain!
          Angel Trainee Flonne! To conspire with demons to wage war on Celestia
          is an unspeakable sin!
          Not only that, but you've harmed innocent angels! You deserve nothing
          short of death!
          I, the Archangel Vulcanus, shall carry out your sentence!

Flonne  : Please, Master Vulcanus! I'm only here with a question for the Seraph!

Vulcanus: Quiet, traitor! It disgusts me to even speak to you!!

Flonne  : Master Vulcanus! Why? Why am I a traitor!?

Vulcanus: Stop pretending to be innocent! We all know that you are conspiring
          with demons so that you can take over Celestia!
          And on top of that, you tricked that stupid Defender of Earth into
          fighting for your cause! How despicable!
          It is our responsibility as angel to destroy demons, the root of all
          evil, and watch over the helpless human race!
          To renounce your sublime duty and join forces with these foul demons
          is simply unforgivable!

Laharl  : Hey! Who the hell do you think you are!?

Flonne  : Wait... Please, let me handle this.
          Master Vulcanus, I pity you.

Vulcanus: W, What?

Flonne  : You believe that demons are evil, that humans are helpless... and that
          you alone are right.
          But, I know that demons can show kindness... and humans can be 
          brave...!
          Without seeking proof, you have allowed your judgment to be colored by
          prejudice.
          Isn't the evil which you speak of in your own heart, Master Vulcanus!?

Vulcanus: W, W, W, WHAT!?

Laharl  : Well said, Flonne.

Jennifer: Yeah! You hit it right on the nose!

Etna    : Right on!

Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... I AM DEEPLY MOVED.

Gordon  : I see that the defender spirit has awakened within you, too! From this

Its obvious what you have to do...
Just make your character stand on the two Geo Panels near your base and wait for
the enemies to come at you. Then kill them off.

But note that the enemies heal often and they use long ranged attacks.

Laharl  : Something's not right...

Flonne  : Huh? What do you mean?

Laharl  : We've made it this far, but still haven't seen any sign of the 
          Seraph...

Gordon  : That's true.

Etna    : If the Seraph is not involved in any of this, then why hasn't he come
          out and saved Flonne?

Jennifer: So, you're saying that fact that he hasn't shown up can only mean...

Flonne  : ......
          ...I understand your point.
          But, I'll believe in Master Lamington until the very end...!

Laharl  : ...Geez, you're stubborn.
          Don't tell me it's because of love again...

Flonne  : Yes it is, absolutely! To have faith in someone you respect... That's
          love!

Laharl  : *sigh* What a Love Freak.

Etna    : Well, I don't trust the Seraph myself, but I guess I can tag along.

Flonne  : Etna...

Jennifer: I'll help you, Flonne. I believe in you.

Gordon  : Me, too! I trust in your love.

Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... I WILL ACCOMPANY YOU, TOO.

Flonne  : Miss Jennifer... Mr. Gordon... Mr. Thursday...

Laharl  : This is ridiculous. You guys are so naive.

Etna    : Hm? Does that mean you're leaving, Prince?

Laharl  : F, Fool! How can I turn back now when I haven't seen the Seraph!?
          I'll go on, even if it's by myself!

Flonne  : Laharl...
         (Everybody, thank you so much...)
         (I'm glad that I met all of you.)
         (I have harmed my own kind...)

Wow!! What a cool map. The way the No Entry Panels are laid is just awesome.
Use it to its fullest extent. Attack the enemies with long range attacks from
a distance. They cant near you too. But they too have their long range attacks,
so be careful.

Its also a easy map, with a Lvl.70 Crusader.

Vulcanus: *grunt* I'm surprised that you made it this far. Not bad... Not bad
          at all.

Gordon  : Everybody, be careful! Whenever a villain appears and talks like this,
          there's always a trap!

Vulcanus: Who are you calling a villain!? Hmph, this will keep your filthy
          mouth shut!
          Evil born from the darkness of chaos! Abide by the pact, and
          annihilate my foes!

Laharl  : Demon summoning...!?

Flonne  : How can this be? Making a pact with demons is strictly forbidden by
          our law!

Demons  : Guooooaaaaah!!

Gordon  : Watch out! These aren't ordinary demons!

Jennifer: Scan them, Thursday!

Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... IMMEASURABLE POWER AND ENDURANCE. DANGER
          DANGER DANGER...!!

Vulcanus: Hmhmhm...!!
          I have enlisted these greater demons for an occasion such as this!
          They were eager to sign the contract when I told them that they could
          have the Netherworld in exchange for your deaths.

Etna    : See, Prince? How many times have I told you to be a better role model
          for your subjects?

Laharl  : Shut up! Now's not the time!!

Vulcanus: *grunt* Enjoy fighting your own kind! Muhahahaha!

Laharl  : Dammit! Even I can't take care of this many greater demons...!

Gordon  : What's the plan? Should we retreat?

Etna    : You think they'll let us retreat?

Jennifer: But, what else can we do!?

?????   : Come on!
          I don't recall having friends that lose their cool in front of their
          adversaries!

Laharl  : Who is this!?

Flonne  : Look! Over there!

Prinny  : Hmph...

Laharl  : You're...!!
          ...Hey, who the heck is that?

Etna    : I dunno.

Flonne  : I don't think I've seen that Prinny before.

Prinny  : Hey! Don't you recognize me!?
          These eyes full of hope and resolution!!
          The spirit that burns within me!!
          And this bold and valiant stature!!
          Who else could it be? It is I, Kurtis!

Gordon  : K, Kurtis?
          ...You mean, THAT Kurtis?

Kurtis  : That's right! Kurtis, Defender of Earth!

Jennifer: But, I thought you were with your family in heaven!

Kurtis  : Heh... That's what I had hoped for, but I committed too many sins in
          my lifetime.
          I was given a different form to make up for what I did...
          I have returned to atone for my sins! And to help my precious friends!

Gordon  : Kurtis...

Jennifer: *chuckle*

Etna    : Hmhmhm...!

Laharl  : Haaahahahaha!!

Kurtis  : Don't laugh!! It's not like I had a choice!!

Gordon  : I, I'm sorry. It, It's just that you're so darn cute...

Kurtis  : I rushed here, thinking you guys needed me, and this is what I get?
          ...Maybe I shouldn't have bothered to come.

Gordon  : No, Kurtis. I am grateful that you're here. Your words have rekindled
          the flame in each of our hearts!
          Right, everyone?

Etna    : Well, he went through all of that just for us. We can't give up now,
          can we?

Laharl  : Of course not. As King of the Netherworld, I will show these demons
          who's in charge!

Flonne  : The power of our friendship is increasing! I think we can do it!

Laharl  : Uh... Am I supposed to find that reassuring?

Flonne  : There is nothing to worry about! Friendship power beats anything!

Laharl  : Geez...

Only 5 VERY strong enemies are there for you to deal. An enemy or two for a 
turn would be good. Laharl should do about ~1500 damage per shot and it would
be too easy a stage for you. In the first turn kill the Neuntoter that comes 
at you with Laharl's specials. (When it attacks and Laharl counters, some of its
HP would be lessened too. So one turn would be enough for it.)

In the next turns, use AOE specials and attack the others. They would be gone
in 2-4 turns.

Kurtis  : Yeah, sure. You were about to run away when I got here.

          different from running away!

Flonne  : Now, now. Let's just say that the power of our friendship brought us
          victory.

Laharl  : This conversation's going nowhere. Let's move on.

Jennifer: Right. We still have that villain to defeat!

Etna    : What's up ahead, Flonne?

Flonne  : Let's see... We are about to enter the Seraphic Sanctuary.
          Besides Master Lamington, only sentries and high-ranking angels are
          allowed inside.

Laharl  : Hm... Sounds interesting.

Flonne  : Please, stay alert. There's no telling what Master Vulcanus might do
          at this point.

Flonne  : Shhh! Quiet!

Celestial Host: This is the Seraphic Sanctuary... Those without permission to
                be here must leave the premises immediately...

Kurtis  : Who are they!?

Flonne  : These are the angelic sentries... They will guard the Seraph at any
          cost.
          They are protected by a special force field, which is impervious to
          all forms of attack.

Flonne  : No! Attacking separately won't do any good!
          We must ALL unite our hearts!!

Laharl  : Unite our hearts...?

Flonne  : That's right! Whether we're angels, demons, or humans, we all share
          the same feelings!!
          and if we focus those feelings together, we can accomplish anything!!

Laharl  : ...How can you say something like that with a straight face?

Flonne  : Laharl!

Laharl  : Alright, alright. So the point is, we all attack at the same time, 
          right?
          Then, let's do it. On the count of three...

          now?

Flonne  : Yes, you did. So, what about it?

Laharl  : Whaddya mean, "what about it"? I keep telling you that I don't feel
          stuff like that!

Flonne  : *giggle* Think whatever you want, Laharl.

Laharl  : What did you say!?

Etna    : Uh, Prince... Now that their force fields are down, isn't this our 
          chance?

Laharl  : Yeah... but...
          ...We'll continue this discussion later! Don't forget!

          But now that you've defeated greater demons, as well as angelic
          sentries... I must recognize your strength.

Laharl  : What's going on? He got so serious all of a sudden. Did he hit his
          head or something?

Etna    : Beats me. These angels... You never know what they're thinkin'.

Flonne  : Um... Were you referring to me, too?

Etna    : Of course I was<3

Vulcanus: SILENCE! Where are your manners!?
          Don't you wish to know my true purpose!?

Kurtis  : Your purpose...? Hmph! I bet it's just some selfish fantasy!

Gordon  : No, if he thought it was necessary to involve the earth and humankind,
          then it must be something really important!

Vulcanus: You are correct! My goal is noble, indeed!
          To become the absolute ruler of the entire universe!

Laharl  : Absolute ruler?

Etna    : Gee, I'm disappointed. Like Kurtis said, you're just fulfilling a
          selfish fantasy.

Vulcanus: No! It is not for my own benefit!
          Peace can only be established in the universe under the watchful eye
          of an omnipotent ruler!!

Flonne  : Master Vulcanus... That is your goal...?
          But, peace is not something that can be achieved by the will of one
          individual...
          It is only possible when everybody joins hands and works together.

Vulcanus: You are too naive, Flonne! Such a pacifistic approach is doomed to
          fail because of these deceitful demons and foolish humans!

Flonne  : That's not true! Demons and humans are capable of...

Vulcanus: Silence! What do you know about them!?
          ...I am all too aware! Their cruelty... Their vileness in their
          hearts...!!

Flonne  : Master Vulcanus...

Etna    : He's not gonna listen to you, Flonne.

Laharl  : Well, maybe he'll be more submissive with a little physical
          persuasion.

Etna    : Uh... Prince, I hope you didn't mean it THAT way...

Vulcanus: The time has come! I will eliminate you, and deal with the Seraph
          next! And then, I will be a god!
          From this day forth, I shall be known as Vulcanus, the Peacebringer!!

As you move forward and end your turn, the enemies come forward at you and 
attack you. Just wait for them to complete their turn and use Winged Slayer
on them in the next turn to eliminate all the ones that come at you.

By the end of the third turn, all the enemies except the 5 Angel Soldiers
and 4 Crusaders, would have been killed. Of course the Archangel will also be
left out.

So, let them come at you. In the mean time, heal your self and be ready.
They come at you in a line, so use your Wind cutter and finish 'em off, as they
near you.

And similarly, slowly the Crusaders will come. Do the same to them. At last the 
Archangel will be left out, who can be killed by Ganging up. He has some 
9000~10000 HP.

Vulcanus: H, How can this be...!?
          My goal! My duty! My dream! They've all been shattered by these
          heathens!!

Flonne  : Have you still not realized it, Master Vulcanus?
          You wanted to being peace to the universe, regardless of the means...
          Even if you had succeeded, could you call it true peace?
          Please consider us as an example, Master Vulcanus.
          We have worked together to come this far, with our hearts united as
          one.
          Can this not be considered the first step towards peace?

Vulcanus: ...Ha! Enough of your idealistic rambling!
          You thought your misguided words could convince me to repent!?
          My beliefs cannot be shaken so easily!
          The game's not over yet! I'll just convince the Seraph to finish the
          job for me! You and he can kill each other!!
          Muhahahaha!!

Gordon  : Drat, we let him escape! Any normal villain would have been moved to
          tears by those words and begged for forgiveness.

Laharl  : His conviction is strong. He won't change his mind so easily.

Kurtis  : He intends to start a fight between us and the Seraph.

Jennifer: He'll probably make us look like the bad guys and tell the Seraph
          some horrible lie.

Etna    : How does he come up with all these dirty tricks? It's really too bad
          that he's an angel.

Laharl  : Well, it looks like a battle with the Seraph is inevitable.
          Are you ready for it, Flonne?

Flonne  : ......
          ...Yes!
          I don't know exactly what will happen, but I must tell Master
          Lamington everything that's on my mind.
          I know he'll understand!

Laharl  : ...I see.
          Then, tell him straight to his face!

Flonne  : I will!

S A C R E D   A L T A R : 
-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-

THIS IS THE LAST STAGE AND CANNOT BE RE-ENTERED !! SO SAVE BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT
THIS STAGE !!!


Flonne  : This is the Seraph's personal chamber. We call it the Sacred Altar.
          Is everybody ready?

Laharl  : Ready.

Etna    : Anytime.

Gordon  : I'm all set.

Jennifer: I can feel my heart pounding.

Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... SYSTEM FUNCTIONING AT 100%. THURSDAY IS GOOD
          TO GO.

Kurtis  : Come on, let's do it.

Flonne  : Okay. Here we go...!



Flonne  : Master Lamington!

Seraph  : Flonne...

Vulcanus: M, Master Lamington!
          She is a traitor who has come to take over Celestia with her 
          abominable troops of demons!

Laharl  : Stop lying. You're the one who's planning to take over the entire
          universe.

Vulcanus: S, Silence, demon!!

Seraph  : Hmm... So, you are a demon?

Laharl  : Not just an ordinary demon. I am Laharl, King of the Netherworld!

Seraph  : You are the son of Krichevskoy... I see.
          Flonne.

Flonne  : Yes, Master Lamington.

Seraph  : Is it true that you are here with these demons to take over Celestia?

Flonne  : No, I have come to ask you a question.

Seraph  : A question, you say?

Flonne  : Yes. A few days ago, the Earth Defense Force led an invasion of the
          Netherworld.
          It was fortunate that it failed, but I discovered that angels were
          involved in the invasion.

Seraph  : ......

Flonne  : Please answer me! Were you behind this, Master Lamington!?

Vulcanus: M, Master Lamington! Do not be fooled by her words!
          All that she has said is a lie!
          Angels using humans to invade the Netherworld!? That is simply
          absurd!!

Flonne  : It's not a lie! I saw it with my own eyes! Without a doubt, they were
          angels!

Vulcanus: You are mistaken! The demons have tricked you!!

Flonne  : While it is true that demons are aggressive by nature, they do not
          hurt others without reason!
          My friends, here, have convinced me of that!

Seraph  : *chuckle* This is quite unusual, Flonne.
          You, a Celestian, refer to demons as friends, and defend their 
          behavior?

Flonne  : Master Lamington. At your request, I went to the Netherworld, and
          there I met Laharl and my other friends.
          Demons may not be perceived as good.
          As a matter of fact, they are rather selfish, rude, and cynical.

Laharl  : Hey!

Flonne  : But...!
          But, I have also discovered that they have love and kindness in their
          hearts.
          Master Lamington, I remember you telling me...
          ...that there is no such thing as absolute evil, that even demons have
          love.
          As I spent time in the Netherworld, I came to realize that you were 
          right.
          It also occurred to me that perhaps we Celestians have judged demons
          too harshly.

Etna    : Yep. Especially this Vulcanus guy.

Vulcanus: H, How dare you!

Seraph  : ...Flonne, I see that you have learned many things in the Netherworld.

Flonne  : Master Lamington...

Seraph  : You are not mistaken.

Vulcanus: Wh, What!?

Seraph  : It is true that Celestians have been blinded by prejudice.
          Refusing to try and understand our cultural differences, they instead
          chose to label demons as "evil"...
          They convinced themselves that they were the avatars of absolute good,
          and branded demons as absolute evil.
          Vulcanus' choices have been the result of such misconceptions, and his
          concern for the future. I should have been more mindful of these 
          things.

Vulcanus: Master Lamington...!

Seraph  : Did you think that I was oblivious to your actions, Vulcanus?
          I am well informed of all that has transpired.

Vulcanus: Ugh...!!

Seraph  : Angel Trainee Flonne.

Flonne  : Yes.

Seraph  : You have helped save the Netherworld from the invasion of the Earth
          Defense Force, and thwarted the plans of Archangel Vulcanus.
          However, the fact remains that you have harmed other angels. You are 
          to be punished for your sin.

Flonne  : ...I understand. I am prepared to accept any punishment.

Laharl  : Wait a minute!
          Why does Flonne have to be punished!?

Gordon  : It makes no sense whatsoever! She only did what was right!

Etna    : Don't you dare lay a finger on her! You'll be sorry if you do!!

Flonne  : It's alright... I knew there would be consequences for my actions.

Laharl  : Flonne...!

Flonne  : Master Lamington, I have one final request.
          I beg of you to forgive my companions. It is I who drew them into all
          of this.

Laharl  : This is crazy, Flonne! Why should you be punished!? You've done
          nothing wrong!!

Seraph  : ...Very well. I shall pardon their sins.

Flonne  : I am grateful for your kindness.

Laharl  : Flonne...

Flonne  : Thank you, Laharl.
          I knew I could trust in you.
          You taught me that demons do have love in their hearts.

Laharl  : This doesn't make any sense to me!
          We're done here, aren't we!? Let's go back to the Netherworld!

Flonne  : Laharl... I want you to have this pendant.

Laharl  : S, Stop! That's...!!



Flonne  : Laharl...!

Laharl  : Hurry up and take it. My hand is burning!

Flonne  : O, Okay!

Laharl  : ...The pendant is telling me that my heart is wicked.
          That's good to know.



Laharl  : That's the pendant we had to look for! You want it to burn me again!?
          Aaaaaaaagh!!
          ...Huh?
          ...Hey, something's wrong. It's not doing anything...

Flonne  : *giggle* Just as I thought.

Laharl  : ...Whaddya mean?

Flonne  : The wickedness has faded from your heart, Laharl. That's why the
          pendant isn't punishing you anymore.

Laharl  : What!? That can't possibly be right!! I'm a demon! The Overlord!!

Flonne  : I'm so glad... I can say good-bye without any worries now.

Etna    : Good-bye...? Flonne...!

Laharl  : Hey... Where do you think you're going?

Flonne  : Good-bye, Laharl. I hope you become a magnificent Overlord.
          Good-bye, everyone. Thank you so much for everything.

Laharl  : Wait! Flonne!

Flonne  : Good-bye...

Etna    : Flonne... Why...!?

Laharl  : ......

Seraph  : The existence of Angel Trainee Flonne has been erased, along with her
          sins...

Laharl  : Flonne...
          Hey, Flonne... What are you doing...? I didn't say you could do 
          this...!
          You're going to abandon me? Like my mother did?
          I didn't give you permission!
          Is this what you call love!? If it is, then I'll never believe in
          love!
          Ever!!

Etna    : Prince...

Seraph  : King Laharl, do you despise me?

Laharl  : Despise you...!? Of course I do, you bastard!!
          ...kill...you...
          I'll kill you!!
          AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!

Seraph  : (This is my punishment... I willingly accept it.)

So THIS is the Final Stage and the Final Boss Battle.

So 5 enemies and A Boss. Its surely sounds easy, though not absolutely easy.
The enemies have VERY high stats, so you gotta level up before attempting this
stage.

First of all take out the the Avengers who come at you. Probably, four of them
will come at you and one, will stay back with the Seraph.

In 1-2 turns, kill the four Avengers. Then heal and go for the Seraph and the 
Avenger. Kill the Avenger as fast as you can and then go for the Seraph.
He has a HP of about 24000~25000.

His Specials are just AWESOME!!! So be very careful. Ganging up on him can help
very much and if you have Night Sever, just use that. He'll eventually be 
killed.

S T A G E   C L E A R 
-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-


HAVE YOUR OWN ENDINGS!!!!
CONGRATULATIONS !!! 
YOU HAVE CLEARED THE FINAL STAGE OF THE GAME TOO!!!

8. AR CODES AND SECRETS:
-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_

There are many AR Codes for this game. They can be found at GameFaqs board
or at Koderwex. 

Some of them are as follows.

If anyone of you wants all the codes, I can provide them here.
But I dont know if they would be useful...
So I didnt put them here. Moreover this is not a patch code list.

ETNA'S ROOM:
-_-_-_-_-_-


To unlock this, press the switch at the back of the throne and the switch
at the skull near the item shop.

Then in the room with Longinus spear and the music shop, you'll notice
a Prinny saying that the castle has become old or something like that.

Just behind that Prinny at the corner of the wall, press A. Etna will say that
she'll be going to restroom and there you can see Etna's Diary and can read
all the notes.

If you happen to read all the notes in Episode 14, you'll be awarded with a 
testament and you can unlock Etna Mode after you complete the game.

I dont think there'll be any need for this section, for, the GameFaqs board
is filled with them.

But if I find that any question asked by anyone through email is a good one,
then I will put it here.

DONT ASK ME HOW TO BEAT HIM/HER !!!
The answer is grind !!!

Level up! Level up! Level up!
This is the common thing in these type of games.

HOW EVER YOU CAN ASK ABOUT STRATEGIES...

NOTE: I have been writing this Walkthrough while playing the game
simultaneously. So I may not be in a state to answer any question regarding the 
Episode for which the Walkthrough is not yet complete.
