Game contents and character profiles described herein are property of Arc System Works and other copyright holders. This file is best viewed with equal-width font, and is searchable with use of the 4-digit addresses listed in the Table of Contents. Any comments, questions, or corrections for this guide may be submitted to: [ hoihoisan(at)gmail.com ] The format of this guide should be self-explanatory. At the top right of each Story Mode section, there is a simple chart that diagrams plot flow. If further clarification is needed, please send me an email. Characters are listed in the Contents by "tier," organized by their relevance to the core plot. "0th Tier" Story Modes are unlocked on completion of all prior storylines (100% Completion not required). The "True End" is unlocked on completion of "0th Tier." All events must be viewed in order to obtain 100% completion of a given Story Mode. This means that, with the exception of events in the True End, every victory and loss must be experienced once. Completion of the True End Story Mode, on the other hand, entails only that every battle is won. Obtaining 100% completion unlocks interviews with the Japanese voice actors that worked on the game and pictures in the Gallery. This guide may be used as a checklist for progress toward story completion. Incidentally, though the character profiles included at the beginning of each of the sections below are official, a number of them are either no longer accurate or outright invalidated by the Story Mode. Take what you read here with a grain of salt. It might be helpful to clear Arcade Mode first -- a brief characterization section is appended to the end of each Arcade Mode, meant to supplement the player's understanding of the characters. =============================================================================== [0001] Ragna the Bloodedge \\ Grim Reaper =============================================================================== Height: 185 cm 1 Weight: 78 kg | Birthdate: March 3 2 Birthplace: Unknown / \ Blood Type: B 3-1 3-2 Race: Human | | Hobbies: Cooking (good at roasting 4-1 4-2 meat) | | Values: His silver bracelet 5-1 5-2 Likes: Meat dishes END Dislikes: Ghosts, the NOL Emblem: http://tinyurl.com/emb01-rgn The SS-class criminal known as the "Grim Reaper". He fights endlessly against the government, determined to destroy them. With a grimoire said to have unparalleled power in his possession, the price on his head is the highest on record for a single person. He has the ability to act on what he believes, but seldom plans ahead or thinks about what might happen next. He usually relies on brute strength to see him through most problems and has a tendency to rush headlong into trouble. He has a foul mouth and often draws attention to himself, whether he wants to or not. Deep down, however, he's not a bad person and doesn't seem to care much about being the most wanted person in the world. ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 1 vs. Rachel Finish: Go to [Stage 2] Distortion Finish: DF Counter +1 Go to [Stage 2] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 2 Encounter: Arakune vs. Arakune Finish: Continue to Choice Distortion Finish: DF Counter +1 Continue to Choice Lose: Game Over Choice 1 --> Go to [Stage 3, Path 1] Choice 2 --> Go to [Stage 3, Path 2] ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 3 | Path 1 vs. Jin Finish: Go to [Stage 4, Path 1] Distortion Finish: DF Counter +1 Go to [Stage 4, Path 1] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 2 vs. Taokaka Finish: Go to [Stage 4, Path 2] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 4 | Path 1 vs. Hakumen Finish: Go to [Stage 5, Path 1] Distortion Finish: DF Counter +1 Go to [Stage 5, Path 1] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 2 vs. Bang Finish: Go to [Stage 5, Path 2] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 5 | Path 1 If DF = 0, vs. Black Noel Finish: Grim Reaper End Lose: Grim Reaper End If DF = 0 < X < 4, vs. v-13 Finish: Grim Reaper End Lose: Game Over If DF = 4, vs. Black Ragna Finish: Game Over Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 2 vs. Hakumen Finish: Alternative Truth Lose: Game Over =============================================================================== [0002] Jin Kisaragi \\ False Hero =============================================================================== Height: 178 cm 1---------- Weight: 61 kg | | Birthdate: February 14 2-1 2-2 Birthplace: England (?) | / \ Blood Type: A 3-1 3-2a 3-2b Race: Human | | | Hobbies: Collecting vintage 4-1 4-2a 4-2b motorcycles | | | Values: Nothing 5-1----- 5-2b Likes: Being left alone END END Dislikes: Weaklings, meat dishes Emblem: http://tinyurl.com/emb02-jin An NOL soldier who, for his achievements in past battles, earned himself the title of "Hero". Nonetheless, one day he decided to disobey his orders and head for the 13th Hierarchical City, Kagutsuchi alone ... as if being drawn in by something. He is Ragna's brother. Almost always calm and collected, this man has no interest in the affairs of others. As a soldier and a commander, his accomplishments are second to none. Beneath his icy facade, Jin is actually very ambitious and is prone to being jealous of the success of others. He obsesses over anything that catches his interest. ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 1 vs. Bang Finish: Continue to Choice Lose: Game Over Choice 1 --> Go to [Stage 2, Path 1] Choice 2 --> Go to [Stage 2, Path 2] ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 2 | Path 1 vs. Carl Finish: Go to [Stage 3, Path 1] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 2 vs. Tager Finish: Go to [Stage 3, Path 2a] Lose: Go to [Stage 3, Path 2b] ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 3 | Path 1 vs. Noel Finish: Go to [Stage 4, Path 1] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 2a vs. Noel Finish: Go to [Stage 4, Path 2a] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 2b vs. Rachel Finish: Go to [Stage 4, Path 2b] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 4 | Path 1 vs. Ragna Finish: Go to [Stage 5, Path 1] Lose: Alternative Truth ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 2a vs. Ragna Finish: Go to [Stage 5, Path 1] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 2b vs. Ragna Finish: Go to [Stage 5, Path 2b] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 5 | Path 1 vs. v-13 Finish: False Hero End Lose: Alternative Truth ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 2b vs. v-13 Finish: vs. Hakumen Lose: Alternative Truth vs. Hakumen Finish: False Hero End Lose: Game Over =============================================================================== [0003] Noel Vermillion \\ Lost Child =============================================================================== Height: 157 cm 1 Weight: 48 kg | Birthday: December 25 2 Birthplace: Switzerland / \ Blood Type: A 3-1 3-2 Race: Human | | Hobbies: Shopping via the internet 4-1 4-2 (so she doesn't have to | | meet people), writing poems 5-1 5-2 (never shows them to END anyone) Values: Parents / Family Likes: Anything cute Dislikes: Bugs, especially ones with lots of legs Emblem: http://tinyurl.com/emb03-nol A lieutenant in the Praetorian Guard, the Librarium's elite military force. She is a member of the noble Vermillion family. While at the academy, she demonstrated exceptional skill in combat and was placed in Jin Kisaragi's command at a very young age. She soon discovered that being around Jin made her uncomfortable. She was secretly ordered to retrieve Jin after he abandoned his post. Her head heavy with worries, she heads for the 13th Heirarchical City of Kagutsuchi. She appears to be cool-headed and reserved on the surface, but she is actually very lonely. Unfortunately, she is not very good at interacting with other people and finds it difficult to make friends. She excels in combat and little else. Rumor has it her cooking can take out a man even faster than her guns. ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 1 vs. Carl Finish: Go to [Stage 2] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 2 vs. Tager Finish: Go to [Stage 3, Path 1] Distortion Finish: DF Counter +1 Go to [Stage 3, Path 1] Lose: Go to [Stage 3, Path 2] ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 3 | Path 1 vs. Bang Finish: Go to [Stage 4, Path 1] Distortion Finish: DF Counter +1 Go to [Stage 4, Path 1] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 2 vs. Bang Finish: Go to [Stage 4, Path 2] Distortion Finish: DF Counter +1 Go to [Stage 4, Path 2] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 4 | Path 1 vs. Jin Finish: Go to [Stage 5, Path 1] Distortion Finish: DF Counter +1 Go to [Stage 5, Path 1] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 2 vs. Taokaka Finish: Go to [Stage 5, Path 2] Distortion Finish: DF Counter +1 Go to [Stage 5, Path 2] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 5 | Path 1 vs. v-13 If DF < 3, Finish: Alternative Truth If DF = 3, Finish: Lost Child End Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 2 vs. Litchi If DF < 3, Finish: Alternative Truth If DF = 3, Finish: Alternative Truth Lose: Game Over =============================================================================== [0004] Rachel Alucard \\ Bystander =============================================================================== Height: 145 cm 1 Weight: 31 kg / \ Birthday: October 31 2-1 2-2 Birthplace: Transylvania | | Blood Type: Unknown 3-1 3-2 Race: Vampire / \ Hobbies: Teatime (her favorite 4-1a 4-1b pastries are milk crepes END and financiers) Values: Time, her Meissen teacup Likes: Sweet things (Especially cake) Dislikes: Being bored, bell peppers Emblem: http://tinyurl.com/emb04-rch Rachel is the current head of the vampire family Alucard. She lives a rather mundane life in her castle with only her butler and pets. One day, she decides to leave for the 13th Hierarchical City of Kagutsuchi, saying only that she is bored. As the child of an aristocratic family, she is well-educated and accustomed to high standards in many aspects of her life. She is normally quiet, but is also very arrogant and self-centered. She rarely does anything on her own and is usually accompanied by her servants, Nago and Gii. However, she treats them rather poorly, and a day out of the castle seldom goes by without Gii nearly dying. ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 1 vs. Carl Finish: Continue to Choice Lose: Game Over Choice 1 --> Go to [Stage 2, Path 1] Choice 2 --> Go to [Stage 2, Path 2] ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 2 | Path 1 vs. Noel Finish: Go to [Stage 3, Path 1] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 2 vs. Bang Finish: Go to [Stage 3, Path 2] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 3 | Path 1 vs. Hakumen Finish: Continue to Choice Lose: Game Over Choice 1 --> Go to [Stage 4, Path 1a] Choice 2 --> Go to [Stage 4, Path 1b] ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 2 vs. Arakune Finish: Alternative Truth Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 4 | Path 1a vs. Ragna Finish: Alternative Truth Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 1b vs. Tager Finish: Bystander End Lose: Game Over =============================================================================== [0005] Taokaka \\ Innocent Heart =============================================================================== Height: 165 cm 0 Weight: 42 kg / \ Birthday: February 22 1-1 1-2 Birthplace: Kagutsuchi (Kaka Village) | | Blood Type: O 2-1 2-2 Race: Lycanthrope | END Hobbies: Taking naps, food (steamed / \ buns) 3-1a 3-1b Values: Friends | | Likes: Big fish 4-1a 4-1b Dislikes: Squigglies (?) | 5 Emblem: http://tinyurl.com/emb05-tao A member of the Kaka clan that lives in the lower layers of Kagutsuchi. Urban development has obscured the sky over her village, and Taokaka is determined to bring it back. She has heard that anyone who captures the man "Rawrgna" can get a lot of "money." Simple and innocent, with occasional mood swings. She rarely listens to what people have to say and tends to judge people entirely on first impressions. ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 0 Choice 1 --> Go to [Stage 1, Path 1] Choice 2 --> Go to [Stage 1, Path 2] ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 1 | Path 1 Choice 1 --> 100% Health Taokaka vs. Ragna Choice 2 --> 33% Health Taokaka vs. Ragna vs. Ragna Finish: Go to [Stage 2, Path 1] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 2 vs. Arakune Finish: Go to [Stage 2, Path 2] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 2 | Path 1 Choice 1 --> vs. Rachel Choice 2 --> Go to [Stage 3, Path 1b] vs. Rachel Finish: Go to [Stage 3, Path 1a] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 2 vs. Hakumen Finish: Innocent Heart End Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 3 | Path 1a vs. Noel Finish: Go to [Stage 4, Path 1a] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 1b vs. Mecha-Tager Finish: Go to [Stage 4, Path 1b] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 4 | Path 1a Choice 1 --> 100% Health Taokaka vs. Arakune Choice 2 --> 25% Health Taokaka vs. Arakune vs. Arakune Finish: Alternative Truth Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 1b vs. Mecha-Kaka Finish: Go to [Stage 5] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 5 Choice 1 --> Alternative Truth Choice 2 --> vs. Bang vs. Bang Finish: Alternative Truth Lose: Game Over =============================================================================== [0006] Iron Tager (TR-009) \\ Blind Warrior =============================================================================== Height: 240 cm 1 Weight: 550 kg | Activation Date: November 23 (date 2 cyborgized) | Birthplace: No record 3 Blood Type: Natural Oil | Race: Cyborg 4 Hobbies: Building ships in bottles | Values: Kokonoe 5 Likes: Magnets END Dislikes: Salt water Emblem: http://tinyurl.com/emb06-tag A feared soldier with a massive frame, known as the "Red Devil." No one knows for sure what he's doing in the 13th Hierarchical City of Kagutsuchi, but chances are it has something to do with the rumors about Ragna the Bloodedge. Bound by his sense of duty and obligation, he executes his missions flawlessly, given what he has to work with. He is always thinking one step ahead, looking for an exit strategy. Kokonoe places great faith in him. He has become known by others as the "Red Devil," but he himself is actually an easy-going man who dislikes needless conflicts. *** Path division conditions for Stage 2 currently unconfirmed. One previous completion of Iron Tager's storyline seems to make the Distortion Finish result more likely ... ? ziltama2k from GameFAQs says: "For Tager, I was able to reach the Stage 2 alternative truth ending after getting the Stage 4 alternative truth ending.

He has been living in the lowest levels of Kagutsuchi, attacking the Kaka clan and any humans foolish enough to visit his sanctuary, but when he detects an enormous source of power from the levels above, he begins to move. His mind has been so deeply corrupted that human beings can no longer hope to understand his thoughts or motives, with one exception: everything he does, he does in search of knowledge. ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 1 vs. Tager Finish: Continue to Choice Lose: Game Over Choice 1 --> Eat Counter +1 Go to [Stage 2] Choice 2 --> Go to [Stage 2] ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 2 vs. Taokaka Finish: Continue to Choice Lose: Game Over Choice 1 --> Eat Counter +1 Continue to Choice Choice 2 --> Continue to Choice Choice 1 --> Go to [Stage 3, Path 1] Choice 2 --> Go to [Stage 3, Path 2] ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 3 | Path 1 vs. Ragna Finish: Continue to Choice Lose: Game Over Choice 1 --> Eat Counter +1 Go to [Stage 4, Path 1] Choice 2 --> Go to [Stage 4, Path 1] ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 2 vs. Bang Finish: Go to [Stage 4, Path 2] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 4 | Path 1 vs. Litchi Finish: Go to [Stage 5] Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ | Path 2 vs. Noel Finish: Alternative Truth Lose: Game Over ------------------------------------------------------------[ Stage 5 If Eat < 3: Alternative Truth If Eat = 3, vs. Hakumen Finish: Solve Equation End Lose: Alternative Truth =============================================================================== [0008] Litchi Faye Ling \\ Excuse =============================================================================== Height: 170 cm 1 Weight: 58 kg | Birthday: July 7 2 Birthplace: Shanghai | Blood Type: AB -----3----- Race: Human | | | Hobbies: Mahjong 4-1 4-2 4-3 Values: Her hair, Lao Chiu (the END panda that lives in her hair) Likes: Japanese sake Dislikes: Indecisive people Emblem: http://tinyurl.com/emb08-lch A doctor in Orient Town, one of the lower parts of Kagutsuchi.

Jin's Story Mode takes place in a cycle that predates all others, and Hakumen recalls at least one prior cycle. Noel and Hakumen are "recent additions" to the cast of players, meaning that they did not take part in the earlier repetitions. Note also that the character settings have been expanded upon and altered somewhat since the arcade release. For information on past settings, please refer to the following site: [ http://forums.comicfiesta.org/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=2490 ] By the way, the nickname "Grimalkin" refers to two different characters.
