WALKTHROUGH
~The beginning to the end~

AD2172, Calistro.......

Ok, now start the game, and play the game on Normal mode, but if
you don't mind and wanna showoff your previous skills, you may start 
with Hard mode.

Now, Watch at the long cutscene about finding the Metatron, and Dingo'll
proceed to your daily job, to find the Metatron (I used to those daily 
job sentences). Suddently, His robot doesn't listen to you command anymore
thus the Auto Pilot mode is disabled, Dingo'll get quite pissed off, and the
game starts.

You play as Dingo Egret, and what you'll pilot now is NOT JEHUTY, is the
useless rabbit robot! 

-Now what you have to do is quite simple, pilot the rabbit robot (Jump is 
the fastest way to proceed the game further.) proceed foward until you
found a mountain. You'll have quite a difficulty of climbing the mountain
at first (As I don't really get it, what is the Circle button doing for?)
-Always follow the arrow shown in front of the robot
-To jump, press R2
-Before you climb the mountain slope, go to the very right corner of the
path and face yourself towars the mountain ledge, to land youself on, press
foward + R2 to dash yourself to the higher ledge, jump one more time, to pass 
through the ledge
-And proceed foward again, Cutscene occur

Have fun with that Rabbit Robot?

Then you will find the Metatron (Orbital Frame), Chaos came, and same as
Leo Steinbuck, you will fall into the cockpit of Jehuty, and.....

TADDA! Ohayou Gozaimasu, Sentou kodo kaishi masu.....
(Good morning, Ready for starting combat operations)
Thus Dingo shouts "UGOKE!" (move!)

-You will see a cool cutscene, and thus moving yourself into battle
-After you kill the two raptors, there is another intermission between
you and Ada.
-Thus you will get into the Tutorial, for lazy players, here's the 
control for you all:

Up, Down, Left, Right - Selection button
Left Analog Stick - Moving Jehuty with Up, Down, Left or Right
Right Analog Stick -  Camera Switch (moving the camera angle)
Triangle - Ascend
X - Descend

Square Button - As long range attack, Jehuty will fire small stream
of missles, minimal damage. As for close range attack, Jehuty will 
attack the enemies with a combo of sword slashes. 4 hit in total.

Circle Button - Firing Subweapons (Grab, Gaunlet, Phalanx, Decoy, 
Comet, Halberd, Geyser, Wisp, Vector Cannon, Floating Mine, Mummy,
Homing Missle and 0-Shift) Those were additional weapons and abilities 
that you will obtained throughout the whole game. As for short range, 
It's function is to grab an enemy. Press circle when an enemy is blocking. 
And you will grab an enemy (subweapon must be choosen "grab") and press 
circle once to throw, multiple times to do a swing attack, nearby 
enemies will get hit if you perform the swing attack. And it's very 
fatal to the enemy. Press Square to take enemy as a weapon, and
R1 to take enemy as a shield! And lastly, Press R2 while the you're
not moving will paralyzed the enemy.

R1 - Shield, to block, note that it'll drop down your subweapon
gauge, the more you use it, the more subweapon gauge you use.
L1 - Switching subweapons, press L1 twice to switch back to the 
default subweapon, Grab.

L2 - Lock on, VERY USEFUL for locating enemies and some hidden 
items. It will become very handy for your progression throughout 
this game.

R2 - Burst, at long range, press R2 with Square to do the Burst 
shot. At close range, Jehuty will perform a swing sword attack.
Those attacks will negate enemies defense, thus giving them some
damage. Jehuty must stand still to perform the Burst attack.

Dash, R2 attack also serves the purpose as dash attack. Press 
R2 while moving to dash left or right, very useful for evading
enemies attack. And also useful for Evade and Attack purposes.
As an example : R2 + Up analog to go front to an enemy, follow
up by pressing Square 4 times to perform a slash attack.

All way laser, R2 also serves another purposes as doing all
way laser attack. Press R2 while moving left, right, up or down
and press Square button at the same time to perform it. Useful for 
killing massive loads of enemies in one shot. But you must be at a 
distance between enemies to perform this attack. Hold Square longer 
to target all the enemies. (It also charges a little of your 
subweapon gauge)

R3 - Playing with Intermission
L3 - Same as R3 (Will include on Fun section)

Ok, done!
INTERMISSION END

-Then, intermission continues, and you'll be fighting tons of
enemies, Enjoy the fight, then cutscnes will occur, fight again
watch another cutscene, fight again, cutscene.........(always
proceed foward and follow the arrow when there are no more
enemies to fight.)
-Until your reach a place with a wall cracked,  Ada will tell
you to do the Burst shot, in order to destroy the wall, do so.
-Proceed front, and you'll watch another cutscene, and now you 
will fight your very first boss......

~BOSS : ARDJET~
(Controlled by Ken Marinaris)

START
Ok this boss is quite easy, most of the time she will be blocking,
so try to go to front, use the swing sword attack to negate her
defense if you're fast enough. She will always use Wisps at her 
first phrase of attack, which is quite easy to negate it, by the 
most easiest way, block it. If you want a better way, Target all 
the Wisps (the red missle thingy) and use the All Way Laser to 
shoot all the Wisps. After the attack she will have a lots of 
recovery time to return herself back to normal, so slash her as 
much as you can until she recovers herself back to normal.
(By the way, Wisps is a missle attack which has a lot of small
missles launching towards the enemy, it's red in colour, so it's 
easier for you to recognize it)

When her health bar is on yellow, she will mostly use the attack
that will cover herself up, and charges herself for a big electric 
attack. Dodge it diagonally left or right and after she's done, 
she will also leave a big gap for you to attack. After this, 
She will either continue using Wisps, or charges herself for that 
attack again, so take note that you have to always defend or evade
her attacks and then find an opportunity to get her off. If you did 
that, you definitely win her without trouble at all.
END

After the cutscene, she will run away, and Dingo'll follow her, to the
BAHRAM battleship. Well, you may care less about Dingo's friends for
now........Bid them farewell....^_^

- You will fight some enemies once you get in, after this follow 
the arrow shown
- Press L2 to discover some mischellenous items such as Metatron, 
and Ex-Mission files (ALWAYS DO SO), although I'll include down the 
locations of Ex-mission files on the Secrets section. But it's best 
to find it out yourself...for satisfication (hint: it's very useful 
to find hidden items that your naked eye can't see, so try to view 
on every single area to find some hidden items, you'll get yourself 
a "reward" for doing so.)
- On the second room of the BAHRAM battleship, Ada will brief you
about the Grab and Camera angle.
- After clearing the enemy, try to press L2 for the Ex-Mission
file.
- Next room, fight again......
- Another next room, there will be a cutscene, and follow the arrow
pointed...
- You will come into a room where there is a huge generator at the
center. Ignore it for the meanwhile and follow the arrow.
- You'll be blocked, thus the generator starts activating...You see
a familar Orbital Frame......That is......

~BOSS : NEPHTIS~
(Controlled by Viola AI)

START
Oh yeah she's back, annoyingly she still wants your death. But 
she's formerly your comarade! Don't worry, this is not the real 
Viola. As she's already died 2 years ago.......The one you fight 
now is only an AI.

You can't hurt her with either long range or short range attacks,
She's invisible. Only way that you can hurt her to proceed, is grab
the metal stick (Notice the screen for the GRAB word) Grab it. And 
aim at her (while she's not moving) and throw the metal at her. She
will be hurt for a little. So repeat the process for 2-3 times until 
a cutscene occur....

Oh yeah, for a faster kill, Charge your stick by pressing R2 while
not moving, aim at her, and throw.....
END

- After you fought the boss, she'll be hurt by the metal, making 
her disabled for the moment, and you'll hear a familar voice...
- Follow the arrow......
- Anubis......

~BOSS : ANUBIS~
(Controlled by Nohman)

START
Seriously, just simply play the game, you won't win him, forever...
Wait till he grabs you.........
END

-LONG Cutscene occurs.....and Dingo.........

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

Two months later, Deimos Station
Orbit around Mars...... 

Ok, If you see the cutscene, you will know more about Dingo for now.
After the intermission.....

- Ok, follow the arrow, there wil be another intermission
- Go left, and proceed foward....
- SOS signal will alert you, Dingo will try to ignore it......
But...knowing the feel, you'll have to save someone, for now....
- OK, here goes your first mission :

INTERMISSION--------------------------------------------DONE!
Ok here goes the mission, you have to save Taper, a LEV UNSF
soilder or whatever he is. To save him, You'll to run around,
Go to every area, and find Taper. Each section that you will 
see is there are many boxes (containers) around, then Taper 
will always give you hints and tips about how to find himself
easily, mostly, He will give you the Alphaberts (A-D), 2 numbers 
possible.(4 numbers to be a full number) And Color of the 
container. Example:

( It's in Japanese for the time being, so try to catch the caption 
for the alphaberts and the numbers)

Taper would say like :" It's on the C container"
or
Taper continues the hint by "it's numbered 0 on the container
or
(rarely) Taper would give you the second number. Example "3"
or
Taper would say like "Akai no containna" (Red Container) or
"Aoi no containna" (Blue Container)

*Listen to what he says very carefully.

Ok, hints that he will give will be the ones I included just now.
Try to destroy the containers by using ONLY normal shots (NO BURST 
ATTACKS, if you found him by the luck, BURST SHOT WILL NET YOU ON
MISSION FAILED, THUS GAME OVER!)

How to know if you can find Taper or not? Easy, around 2-5 round of
wandering around, if Ada says something once you get into the new area
That means he's near, plus Taper will still give you hints. He always
give 2-3 hints if you're lucky. 1 hint if you're really unlucky. If you
dash, charge (R2 while not moving), Taper will say something like 
"What's that noise?" Press start for looking at the signal that Ada
gave you (cross in green, flashing) If you found out the container with
all the Hints that Taper give you. Press Square, if you got him, you'll
found him. 
INTERMISSION OVER....................................................

Ok, now that you've found Taper, you'll get your first Subweapon, 
Geyser, very useful for stunning enemies. Now, after the cutscene,
You have another mission to go:

- Put your subweapon to Grab, press circle to grab Taper's LEV.
The Phantoma. and try not to press circle, leave the area by 
grabbing him, and your target is to bring him to the Emergency
Escape Area. 
- Press start, and look for the map which locate the Emergency 
escape area (it's an orange dot). Always check the map around so
you won't get lost. Right Analong stick to view the map up and
down, so you will know where it is pointed at the Map.
- The Emergency Escape area is always on the North side of your
map
- If you happend to engage into battle, release Phantoma by 
pressing Circle once. And clear the enemy in the specific area 
before grabbing Phantoma again.
- If Phantoma happends to be injured, and low on health, press
R2 while you're grabbing him (you must not move), and you will 
perform a burst charge, but it will heal Phantoma at the cost of 
your sub weapon gauge.
- Ok, now get Phantoma to the Emergency Escape area.  
- For fun, you can use Phantoma as "weapon", and Taper will be
very scared! ^_^, you may even scare him by pressing square
while you're not fighting. Taper will scream!
- Once you get there, there will be another cutscene.
- You will engage into unavoidable battle, kill all those 
Raptors , Mummyheads , and Cyclops avaliable.
- Once cleared, you will see another cutscene where Nephtis
chasing you. Dingo'll escape, of course.....

Mars
After leaving Deimos Station

Now you're on Mars, where the UNSF mostly located at. Once you 
land there....

- Ken will have an intermission dialogue with Dingo(you), again......
- You will know more about the Vector Cannon, Aumaan, Anubis,
and Jehuty by the intermission told.
- Ok, prepare to face another boss battle that you will never forget

~BOSS : VIC VIPER~
(Controlled by Leo Steinbuck)

START
Oohh, This is fun! You finally got to fight Leo who happens to be
the first Runner of Jehuty on Z.O.E 1! He controls Vic Viper now.
And he never chicken out anymore, now making him less annoying...

Vic Viper is cool! He will start the battle by changing mode. Which
will change into a cool flying airship! IT will mostly use laser
attack at the begining of the battle. And the missles. Which you
have to be careful. Since Vic Viper is fast, you must use All
Way Laser, in order to damage him during his flight mode. And
evade his attacks until Leo says something like "sekkin da". If
He said that means he will change his mode into robot mode. Where
he starts to use melee attacks. Don't try to fool him at the close 
range. His melee attacks never give you chance to counter it.
So Geyser subweapon is useful here, try to use Swing Sword Slash
while he's not blocking (damage him also). And use Gaunlet to 
stun him, and slash him. Once it's enough of his robot mode.
Vic Viper will change mode again. In addition, He will always
block while you try to do close range melee, and finds a chance
to hit you close range. So be smart and use Swing Sword Slash
to negate his defense.

Repeat the process above until VV's health bar drops to yellow.
The only thing you have to careful when this happens is his Ripple
attack. With his options (the blue thing around him) appear, His
Ripple will x3 of the normal (so there will be 3 ripples attacking 
you.) Making his attack range wider. No changes when he's on Melee. 
But when he turns into flight mode VV will start to activate his 
Shield,  which you have to destroy it in order to damage him again. 
And while's he's off screen, don't worry if the lock on is gone. 
He will be back and assault you, so Dash around to avoid his assault. 
Repeat the process until he's defeated.

He's not that hard, believe me. Leo is skillful of handling VV while
fighting you, but by not means he's better than you!	
END

After the battle, you will see a cool struggle between Jehuty and
Vic Viper. And Ada will recognize the Vic Viper's pilot as Leo
Steinbuck. Where old friends reuntied. Dingo will learn that
Jehuty will self destruct after success of invading Aumaan. (I 
thought so) Dingo will be pissed off, and tries to find a solution
: to destroy Aumaan and Anubis, and stop Ada from self destruct.
(remembers me of Tidus of FFX). Leo will quite shock about your
decision, and he hands you one of the subweapons, Gaunlet device 
driver, to you. Now you can use Gaunlet as your subweapon, and
VV will leave.

Now, you have another intermission between Ken and Dingo. After
the intermission......Follow the walkthrough provided below:

- Your location now is at Margaritifer.
- Get the Metatron which located at the left side of where you're
facing at.
- After getting the Metatron, you'll see the new enemy, The 
Narita. When Ada is talking while you're fighting Narita's, press 
L3 to activate a mini mission where Ada will test your speed about 
fighting Narita's. Once they are destroyed, You'll get another 
mission file....where it is located at the north, on top of the 
entrance to the Margaritifer Canyon. 
- Try to break those rocks (those rocks that stand up) for 
Ex-mission files, There are two of those hidden inside the rock. 
Break all those to find for them (L2 to locate them easier), 
wander around for one more Ex-mission file, this is located at 
the bottom of the mountain slope, where is located at the end 
of the south map. Where there's one hidden in a corner near the 
bridge with the crashed train.
- Once you're done here, Go to the Margaritifer Canyon, which is
located at the North of your map (Press start to see the words, 
it's written there.)

Now you get in, You'll obtainned another Metatron Ore. Then 
proceed foward. Now you're at the crossroads, Ada will tell you
that you can't proceed foward until you unlocked the Main Gate 
in front. Since it has two generators which is now active,
you have to destroy the two generators in order to unlock the
Main Gate inside the canyon.

INTERMISSION--------------------------------------------DONE!
Ok now here is your next task. To unlock the main gate in front,
you have to destroy the generators to unlock the gate. There
are two of them. So start by going to the left route. If you 
can't go foward anymore, Kill the enemy which has the key symbol 
on that particular enemy. You won't be able to go foward without 
clearing that enemy. After you have at least killed the enemy
with the Key symbol, you'll unlock a section of the gate (which 
you have 3 gates to reach the generator.) And nets you to go 
foward and find the generator.

Note that if you always lean towards left on the left route. 
You will find a secret route (on the map, it shows.........)
Where you will find another Ex-mission file, and a dead end. 
Ignore the dead end which is blocked by stones. And follow
the arrow shown

When you reached the generator, destroy it. And try to leave the
area and you'll encountered by some enemies, Ada will tell you to 
destroy the particular enemy (Commander) in order to weaken 
the other enemies around. Do so. After it is cleared, You will
get the Phalanx Device Driver and you can use Phalanx subweapon 
now. After the battle, follow the arrow. And proceed until you 
reach the main gate, and take the right route. Repeat what you 
did on the left route, except that there is no secrets found on 
the right route.

After destroy two of the generators and you'll unlock the 
main gate.
INTERMISSION OVER..............................................

Go inside the main gate (If you're low on health, take the Metatron 
Ore before you go in.......)

You will see a cutscene...and..............

~BOSS : NEPHTIS~
(Controlled by Viola AI)
The Second Battle

START
She back, with vengence....OH yeah, she's still quite "invisible". 
And takes most of her time blocking your attacks and counter you at 
the same time, What a skillful AI!! You can't really hurt her! 
Even you can't really success in grabbing her! What to do?

Here's a little trick though.......

Notice that there are a lot of steel plates hanging around? Put your 
subweapons to "Grab", and grab the steel plates. Wait till she says 
"Ikuo!" Means she is preparing to charge towards you! Or if you see 
her body flashing. Block youself with the steal plate, and once she
charges towards you, she will be paralyzed, take the opportunity
to slash her as many as you can, or grab and swing her if you want
to......

Repeat the process, and when her health bar drops to yellow, the 
first part of the battle will be over.
END 

After the battle, Nephtis will never give up and charge towards 
you, pushing you towards, and bring you to another location.

On the next location, the poor Jehuty will be pushed by Nephtis
into a fence. Since the fence is surrounded by the electircal 
voltage, you thus got hit at the corner, struck on the fence, 
and got paralyzed.......
And now, it's time for the second part of the battle.

~BOSS : NEPHTIS~
(Controlled by Viola AI)
The Third Battle

START
Wooh, a pain! Dash to get out of the Electrical fence. And it's 
time for another strategy.

Don't bother playing skills with Nephtis, she won't be hurt, and 
you'll make it opposite, she will counter your hit and give you 
some damage. You don't want it to happen right?

She starts the battle on her yellow health bar. Well that's good 
news. So what you must do now is dash left or right, wait till she 
starts charging herself, dash to avoid it (Make sure you are near 
around the electrical fence, not too close though), She will charge 
towards you. Since you avoided it, she will go towards the electrical 
fence and paralyzed. She will be struggling, so? Take the opportunity 
and slash her! But Swing Sword Slash will damage her more, Don't bother 
to use fully charged Burst Shot, you won't be able to make it.

To make yourself safe (Since too close to her might result on an impact
which push you to the electircal fence), Use a short charge Burst Shot
to damage her, It works!

Any other attacks of hers is self explainatory, dodge it whenever
it's needed, as before, no melee attacks as she will always block
it and counter you back, Repeat the process above, keep letting her
charge towards you, once she does that, avoid her charge, and you'll
successfully trick her, go ahead and do whatever you want to her!
END

After the battle, you'll get the Comet device driver, Now, Comet
subweapon is yours.

Now, The UNSF is heading towards a city, what happend?

The BAHRAM forces is going to destroy the Verscilla city(sp?), 
residents are on danger! So UNSF is going to help them of course, 
you know sometimes UNSF won't be really dependable, So you try to 
allied temporally with them and help the UNSF to clear the enemies
and avoid letting the enemies get through the civillian area But, 
since this is a Japanese game, that's only my assumption....

INTERMISSION--------------------------------------------DONE!
Now you have another mission to go. Your mission is to clear
the enemies WITHOUT damaging the surroundings. If you manage
to do that, You will get a higher rank. To start always follow
the arrow shown, since you're playing this game for the first 
time, use Geyser as your subweapon. Your enemy will only be
Spiders, a very tiny yet fatal robot. So clear them whenever you 
see them. Take this map as a guide

---                 ---                               ----

X - Locations of where Spiders will usually appear
O - Refill your sub energy bar

Firstly, when the mission start, the * mark will always be the
first where the Spiders pop up, don't worry, they are extremly
easy to kill. Then always follow the red arrow that Ada told you
but the first and the second, stay at the * mark there. They will
pop up at the same location twice, the third location, just head
to the right (the ! mark). And so on.....Don't worry, even in Very 
Hard mode, If you are really careful enough, you can either get a 
"S" or "SS" rank (I got a S rank on Very Hard mode playing this 
mission) 

The only thing you have to careful is the (!) mark, when the 
Spiders pop up there, don't kill them just yet. Because doing
this will damage the fence surrounding them and thus drop down
your rank (that's how I got a "S" rank, I can't avoid hurting
it). Wait till the Spider walk up to a little distance, use
your melee attack. NEVER use long range attack on that area.
To ensure you got SS rank. Other area is ok, the 5th location 
that they will pop up is on the (^). and the sixth location 
that they will pop up is on the (%) mark. And so on, just
follow the red arrow will do, but don't be too late.....
Do not let them reach the buildings!

Where is the fouth location? Go back to the (*) mark there.
They will appear there. Good Luck on getting the SS rank!
I got it once, so I believe that you can do it too.

Here is my results (the best record that I've gotten through
playing 4 times)

Mode : Hard Mode
Buildings left : 100%
Survivors left : 100%
Rank : SS
And Dingo will be quite proud of himself, calling himself a genius 
runner. Ada will really responsed him by calling him "Genius Runner"!!
INTERMISSION OVER..............................................

After this, intermission cutscene will take place. After this,
having back the controls, follow the arrow (Get the Metatron Ore 
if you want to). Once you reached the destination and you will see 
another cool  cutscene.

Now here is your another task, you have to destroy the train before 
the time reaches zero.

- Easy if you play normal, a bit challenging when you play Hard and
Very Hard mode.
- Time remaining for the Normal mode is set on 10 minutes, while Hard 
and Very Hard set the time in 5 minutes.
- Destory 5 parts of the train before the timing runs out, kill
the enemies around your way. 
- To destory the train easily, You have 2 choices : Either you
do the fully charged burst shot, or you dash around and target 
all the specific target and blast them away with All Way Laser 
attack. (You must target all of the parts so that you will 
destroy the train easier) 
- Once you manage to destroy them, You'll have enemies pop up, 
kill them all.
- To get to the other parts of the train, Dash front to reach it.
- Repeat the process.
- kTjun from the GameFAQs message board provided a very useful
strategy, Use your Phalanx subweapon, since when you target the
train. You will also hurt the other part of the train as well!
Making you destroy the train even faster than normal!

Once you destroy all the parts of the train, Jehuty will stop the
train from moving.

Then you will get the Decoy subweapon. There is another cutscene
through.....Then......

Proceed foward and get the Metatron Ore..And you'll found something
terrible happend.....Follow the arrow, go up, and turn right, then
go foward.

You'll reach a place....... Where you'll meet...........

~BOSS : NEPHTIS~
(Controlled by Viola AI)
The Fouth Battle

START
She won't give up don't she? This time, you will fight her without 
using any items, and she still love to block and counter! What to do?

Easy, Equip the Gaunlet subweapon, when you saw her charging towards you
(sometimes you don't see her), Press L2 and evade her charge attack. 
And use Gaunlet. While she's at the corner, the Gaunlet subweapon will
damage her really hard. Since there are other enemies around (known as 
Clod). Press L2 if you lost her. She will run away, thus making you lost 
the target. Try to destroy the Clods to recharge some of your subweapon 
energy, and press L2 to see is she back to charge you again. Evade it 
and use Gaunlet subweapon to hurt her. Always keep your distance away 
from her. ALWAYS press L2 to check out whether she's back or not. Since 
there are many enemies around, you will not know if she's back since the 
Lock on target never automatically lock on to her.

There is an alternative strategy, provided by Aumaan. While she's away
Grab the Clod, and paralyzed it by pressing R2 while you're not moving
Press L2 to locate her after a while, when she's back, Guard yourself
up. And let her ram at you. She will be knocked down, so you know the
way...Corner her and blast her with your Gaunlet Subweapon!  

Repeat the process, and always use L2 to locate and target Nephtis.
And after the battle, she's done for........
END

Nephtis is over for now.....yep, she's destroyed......And you'll
recieve the Vector Cannon subweapon device driver, and now, you can 
use the Vector Cannon subweapon, but only on ground, and it's VERY 
IMPORTANT for some missions. Taper will be there, shocked to find 
out that you're formerly a part of BAHRAM forces (at the past I mean) 
Taper will get very scared and think you're still working for BAHRAM...
Whatever it is, He will no longer trusting you now. Instead on that,
He will take you as an enemy now...
(What an annoying guy, I wonder why I have to save you at the first
place!)

Ardjet will arrive, and Ken will quite shocked about something.....
(Maybe about what Taper says before he leaves the screen.......)
And suddenly, Nephtis moved her hands, and assaults Ardjet! Now,
Ardjet will out of control and assaults you! And you will find out..... 
Ardjet is possessed...by Viola AI!

Ada will tell you that you have to delete the program that Viola AI 
infused inside Ardjet, and defuse Ardjet's operation system... Which 
Dingo will never think that he have to "kill" her former comrade to 
save somebody!

~BOSS: ARDJET~
(Controlled by Viola AI)

START
Oh yeah, you will fight Viola AI for the very last time.........
ARDJET MUST NOT BE KILLED!

You will see two health bars, the top one is Ardjet's life bar,
and the bottom is Viola's health bar. Take on my two advices here:

-NEVER ATTACK ARDJET! Once her health bar is gone, Kiss yourself 
goodbye and watch your TV with the GAME OVER screen pop up in front 
of you! ^_^
-Viola A.I is your target, and she will suck up Ardjet's health bar
if you don't do anything. It's an unexpected move, so if she does that
stop her by grabbing her, although you can't grab her, at least you
stopped her.

SO what to do?

Ok, get close to her. and Ardjet will use her sword attack, counter
her by timing her sword attack and press Square to do a sword slash
to clash the attacks. Yes, COUNTER HER, not guard/block her sword 
attacks. After you've done this for 4 times. She will be knocked down, 
take the opportunity to GRAB her and press R2. (Actually you don't 
need it, but since R2 can delete her much faster). After a while. 
Viola AI will escape from your deletion and either starts attacking 
with using Wisps or her charge attack. Evade it, you know how to do it. 
And after she's done with those attacks, get close and counter her 
again. Repeat the process until she's completely deleted 
END

Ok, Nephtis is destroyed, and the Viola AI is deleted, she will 
begone from this game forever. And you will have a cutscene (funny!)
Hahaha, now you have to get down and save Ardjet once more since
she can't move! And you will get the subweapon Wisp

You will be at the place with larva.......

- Ok, grab on Ardjet, like how you did to Phantoma at the mission 
on Deimos Station. And save her by going to the top of the larva, so
that you can exit from this hot place!
- For a fun fact (this info is provided from John Carter/Aumaan)
Thanks to him a lot! Grab Ardjet, without releasing her, go down 
near to the larva. Ken will complain how hot it is. Not for too 
long though ^_^. You'll know what happend next......
- Back to the topic, you have to get Ardjet by ascending her and 
yourself to the very top. 
- Beforehand, try to clear the enemies around you. They are endless
so don't bother kill them all. But you have to kill the enemies with
the Key symbol around them, because if you don't, you can't proceed
foward, some of the place is covered by a yellow barrier that you 
can't go upwards.
- If those enemies attacks you, you'll automatically lose Ardjet. So
kill them and get back Ardjet (she will be falling, and those enemies
will focus on attacking Ardjet! How smart......)
- If Ardjet is low on health, Grab her and use R2 to burst youself,
to recover her health bar.
- Once you kill off 3 specific enemies with Key symbol, follow the
arrow and get the hell out of here! 

Ok, you will successfully get up to the top! and mission will be 
accomplish for here now!

-If you do the fun fact as I mentioned above, Ken will be half naked!
Not too extreme though so don't think so far! ^_^ Remember, larva 
almost burned her uniform if possible, or she may feel too hot so..... 
Common sense right?

Ken will get into Jehuty, together with Dingo. If you do the
fun fact that I mentioned above, Do you think it would be fun? 
wooohhhhhh.......And note this is not forever.....She will put 
her clothes on after a while. And how she does that!?

And your next mission is supposingly find Leo to discuss about Aumaan's
invasion. But knowing Ada's system and Jehuty's power is not enough
to do so, Plus, you still informed unknown about Anubis's performance.
Dingo (you) decide to find Lloyd. A research scientist who is involved 
with the Orbital Frame production together with Professor Hardiman, 
Nohman's father. He knows all about Jehuty and Anubis. So Dingo decided 
to ask Lloyd about how to find a way to destroy Anubis.

You will reach the Security Defense area of outside Lloyd's city. You
can't proceed anymore foward due to the radar jamming. and you have to
walk to find Lloyd's city, using Jehuty.

So. Here is what you suppose to do:

- Ken will tell you about Lloyd's location with her mini detector. So 
FOLLOW WHAT SHE SAYS!
- Since those instructions is in Japanese....You won't understand a 
word she says if you don't know any word of Japanese, so here's the scoop 
if you don't a thing about Japanese:

- "Migi" is Right "Hidari" is left. "Mo sukoshi migi/hidari yo" means 
"A bit to the left/right". 
- "Stoppu" means Stop. "Ah, Stoppu", "tomate!", "chotto! stoppu" or
whatever she says while you are moving is means to stop. 
- "Susuno kokono shiuzen shite" (Is it correct? Or I heard it wrongly?) 
means "Please change/correct the direction that you're facing now"
- If she mumbles, ignore her and wait for her orders.....
- "Ima, mae ni susunde" means "Now, you may proceed/ go foward"
- "Ki wo tsukete" means take care
(My Japanese is quite bad, so correct me if I'm wrong)

- If you don't follow her orders, You'll be in deep trouble! What will
happend, I leave the consequences for yourself to think.
- You will reach a place where you have to fight the enemies, clear all 
of them, and you'll get the Halberd subweapon.
- After this, follow Ken's orders.
- If you find some floating mines along the way, press L2 longer to 
unlock the target. DON'T EVER TRY TO DESTORY THOSE FLOATING MINES, If 
they happend to attach on you, Guard it.
- If you continue to go foward, you'll see some mosqituo's. As usual, 
press L2 longer to difuse the target lock-on. Guard, and proceed foward
- On some places, you'll see some missles flying towards you, Guard it.
- Continue.....and when you reach the place where you have to clear the 
enemies to proceed foward, do so.
- After this. NEVER MOVE until Ken tells you what to do......
- If you done this correctly without problems at all, you'll reach 
Lloyd's city. Intermission will come in, Lloyd will greet you.....

You will arrive on the big city, Lloyd's city, your target is to
get down to the Lloyd's Undeground base.......

Now that you've arrive Lloyd's city, clear all the enemies you found
(to level up of course.......)

- Press start to see the Map of Lloyd's City
- It's best to clear all the enemies so that you can fight those
enemies easier for the next stage (Level up), But if you want to 
boost through the game, it's all right to straight go to the 
Elevator (shown on map, if you see the diamond shape flashing on 
the map, That's the Metatron sign, and the elevator. Not every
elevator shown is the way to the Lloyd's Underground Base!
- Where's the Lloyd's Underground? Press start, look at your map:
If you notice there is a place where 4 elevators arranged on a cross
shape? Go to the east side of the crossed elevator. Not really 
understand? Let me go into more specific way:


Elevator                                             Elevator

                       Elevator




      Elevator                           Elevator(!!)




                       Elevator

Elevator                                              Elevator


                LLOYD'S CITY MAP (SIMPLE FORM)

If you go look at the map, and zoom out a bit, the map supposed to look
like this (I make it very simple, so...), The Elevator to the Underground
base will be marked (!!)

- After you got into the right way, after clearing the enemies, get
down...........

Lloyd will be impressed by your efforts of finding the way to meet him
But knowing there is still a long way to go.......Lloyd will ask: Will
you managed to get to the lowest Underground base? That will depends
how great you are!

- Ok, The Underground Base is compromised with 3 parts of Levels before
you can get to the lowest, thus meet Lloyd 
- Remember, the moving pillar can kill! so don't get between them! Unless
you want the moving pillars to crush you like a flat pie........
- Destroy all the enemies before you can proceed downwards since the pillars 
will only move in every section after you killed the enemies
- Before you get in the door down to the second level, Go to the back, 
ascend yourself up a bit, and press L2, there should be 2 Ex-mission
files there. 
- Always after this, follow the arrow. And make your way to the third level
(Second level also have something over there, but you may have to clear
the game once first, look for SECRETS section for more info)
- The third level is the same as first and second level did. But instead
to go straight down to meet Lloyd, check the path which adjacent to the 
door on the floor in the bottom room. There will be another Ex-mission
file there.
- After this, Follow the arrow, get the Metatron Ore. And you will reach
Lloyd..............

Dingo have reached Lloyd, He will greet Dingo, thus intermission comes, and 
Lloyd challenges Dingo into a fight, with his Orbital Frame, Inhert. (Don't 
worry, he's not a villian, he's just a good guy who just can't betray BAHRAM....)

~BOSS : INHERT~
(Controlled by Lloyd)

START
This is a half-chicken battle if you ask me, Inhert will always leave 
floating mines for you to play with. And run away, Track him, and never
got hit by his floating mines, Of course, use the All Way Laser to negate 
all the Floating mines. And Guard his missles when he does that (the missle
will follow you)

*Get to the very bottom of the ground to locate another ex-mission file

Since long range attacks have difficuties reaching him...What you can do 
here is quite a hard thing. Use Decoy as your subweapon, Try to get near
him by dashing towards him (I have no alternative way). Since you're toying
with him for the first time. I think it's quite hard to reach him without
a better way unless the clear the game once. (0-Shift...)

However, once you get near him, use Decoy to let him slash a "fake" of 
yours (he's quite fast in melee attacks). And use Swing Sword Slash to 
negate his guard. And you'll damage him, follow up by a dash slash (
While dashing press Square at the close range) to damage him more. He'll 
leave some decoys (five of them) for you to handle. If you manage to 
kill the fake one, don't worry, It won't hurt, try to find another 
way but don't bother pressing L2 to locate him since he will be leaving 
so many F.Mines, It will only confuse your targeting. Just try to get near 
him, and the lock on will straight point into him.

Repeat the process of getting near him and use Decoy and Slash tactic.
Once his health bar on yellow. Lloyd will be quite impressed with your
skills. And thus going into his second phrase of his attacks.

~BOSS : INHERT~
(Controlled by Lloyd)

Continued from the last round, it's time for the second round. This is
fun, you'll be in complete darkness and you can't see anything! Inhert
is hiding on shadows and assault you. You won't be able to see what he
is going to do. But Ada will try to help you along the way to reach 
Inhert so follow her orders.

Dash front when the lock on comes, Yeah, when Ada tells you about 
something. Follow!

- F.Mine no sekkin, Kaihi shite kudasai (Floating mines is near, 
please evade it)
- Misairu no sekkin, gohio shite kudasai (The missles is near, 
please guard it)
- Tekki sekkin (Enemy is near / approaching)
- Tekki made (Enemy waiting / Enemy distance)
- Jyuu, Kyuu, Hachi, Nana, Roku, Go, Yon, San, Ni, Ichi
(10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1)  
- Migi yo kaihi (Evade right)
- Hidari yo kaihi (Evade left)
- Gohio (Guard)

Whatever she says to take you near Inhert must be follow unless you want
to die from Inhert's attacks....Once you get near him, Again, use Decoy and
Swing Sword Slash follow by a Dash Slash. It's a lucky if he tries to 
hit you twice and leave away, You can damage him more that way....^_^
For an alternative strategy, block his slash attack and counter him.
It works this way, too.

He sometimes leave 5 decoys for you to handle. 4 of them is a fake while
one of them is real, Once you got the real one, repeat the process mentioned
above. 

Sometimes if you do All Way Laser, He will guard, and when you follow up by 
slashing him he will still guard your attacks, So, save your Decoy, and straight 
away slash with Swing Sword Slash. That works even better, but most of the time, 
he will try to slash you away. So Decoy is extremely important when fighting
him.

Repeat the process that I've mentioned above, and Inhert will be defeated.
END

Inhert will get damaged, and his protective gel surround his Orbital Frame
will fade. Lloyd will congrats Dingo for defeating him, and agree to lend 
Dingo a hand by transfering the 0-Shift program to Jehuty so that Jehuty will 
have a chance to stand against Anubis. And Inhert will also transfer one of 
his attacks to Jehuty, Floating Mine subweapon Device Driver. Now you can use 
the Floating Mine subweapon. Since Dingo can't leave Jehuty for specific reason,
and Lloyd can't move his OF to transfer the 0-Shift program to Jehuty. Ken
will volunteer herself to represent Lloyd to transfer the program for Dingo.

But, Lloyd will ask Ken to hurry, Anubis is near. And Lloyd will know that
he can't get away anymore, since he had betrayed BAHRAM, Nohman will not 
let Lloyd alive... 

As the program transfers, Lloyd will beg Dingo to destroy Aumaan.....Where the
BAHRAM's main force resides. As soon as the 0-Shift program is succesfully
transfered........

~BOSS: ANUBIS~
(Controlled by Nohman)

START
Oh yeah, here he is. Still, you won't use 0-Shift yet since 0-Shift is not 
yet installed into the Jehuty's system.....

And, no matter what you do, You'll never win Anubis, but try to get him down
around 15% of his health bar, Cutscene will occur...
END

Tough, huh? Lloyd will ask Dingo to get away. But, knowing that he can't 
leave Lloyd just yet, you started to caught off guard. Anubis will throw
his lance? polearm? halberd? whatever....towards Jehuty, and Lloyd will 
sent Inhert's Decoy to get you out of here, and he dies, well not really.

Anubis will go down, plug out Inhert's head (cockpit) and destroy it. Lloyd
is now dead.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Out of Lloyd's City......

Jehuty and Dingo is saved....and the decoy of Inhert is fading.......

Next you'll have an intermission, Ken is safe, hiding inside Inhert's body
while Anubis wander around. Now Dingo and Ken will have a talk.......

Now after the intermission, Dingo'll notice there are many BAHRAM Warships
hovering around.... What happend?

Then you will have an intermission with the BAHARAM Battleship commander
and the commander will commence their attack towards Jehuty. After that,
Dingo will contact Leo, telling him that BAHRAM's Battleship is heading
towards to where the UNSF is at, Where the UNSF have entirely no chance 
to stand against the battleship since they are strong, and BAHARAM decide
to wipe out the UNSF's forces by using the air tactic! You will know those
Phantoma's are useless.......Dingo decides to destroy them and help the
UNSF once more.....

So you will have another mission to go:
INTERMISSION--------------------------------------------DONE!
Now you have to destroy all the battleships... And it's my favourite 
mission of all! Destroy all the parts of the battleship and enemies 
along the way. Beware when a signal "Danger" (a pink color gauge pops
up) appears. Move yourself so you won't get hurt by it's energy attack.
Anyway, to make sure you're safe while fighting the small enemies,
destroy the battleship's cannon before they start to pop up another
"Danger" sign again. Once you're done. Head to the middle of the
Battleship, If you see a Moving sphere, which attacking the sphere 
will result on a yellow shield guarding the sphere, and it won't be 
negated with any of your attacks, that's the CORE of the Battleship.

To destroy the core, get to the platform behind the sphere (That means
you have to stand in front of the sphere). Land yourself down, and
use the subweapon Vector Cannon (V.Cannon). Hold down Circle to charge
up. And you'll see a Vector charge gauge on the down-middle of the 
screen, be patient, and let Jehuty finish the charge, once it's done.
Release the circle button and BOOOOOOOOOOM! You got it!

Once you destroy it, follow the arrow, and repeat the process mentioned 
above. You have to destroy 5 of the battleships on this mission. Good
Luck! 
INTERMISSION OVER..............................................

Once you're done......There will be a warning sound.....and.....
What the hell.........?

~BOSS : ZAKAT~
(Controlled by the Zakat Runners, 5 of them, in one HUGE Orbital Frame)

START
My favourite boss battle, and the easiest boss of all. But since fighting
on air feels so great, and the battle theme is super cool, I can't help 
myself toying around that Huge Ball! 

Zakat's attacks aren't that damaging, but has a wide range. Avoid yourself
when a Zakat Runner screamed "Membasu kakou, Ukae!". Dash yourself left
and right very quickly since the cannon blast attack will always follow you
where ever you go, If you go hit, you'll be pushed to the very back of the
screen.

Get youself INSIDE Zakat, and slash the body inside Zakat. Since it's huge,
it doesn't move much, so take your time until it blows you away, and it will
activated it's barrier, rendering all of your attacks useless, To deactivate
it's barrier, Put your subweapons selection to Grab, and find for the plates
that Zakat attached on itself. (Notice the grab words around Zakat, so be 
smart and get near him), There 4-5 of those, You may not take it as a shield
but you can't hurt it either so do whatever you want and grab all the plates
and Zakat's shield will be deactivated, Get inside his body, and slash it
until Zakat's health bar grow yellow.

Once Zakat's health bar reached yellow, It will start it's "Formation 2"
phrase. Are you worry? No......You won't.

Since the target changed from it's body to it's head. So don't bother hit
the head just yet, wandering around (Try to attack it's shield until it
shatters. After the shield shattered. Use the Burst Shot and damage it's
head. Or you might want to use the All Way Laser attack, it's up to you.
However, beware of the gravity attack. It will suck you in, and damage
you. IT WON'T TARGET THE HEAD UNLESS YOU DESTROY THE GRAVITY ATTACK....

Other of Zakat's attack is self explainatory, Get it evade, and ones it's
shield shatters, Repeat the process above and damage Zakat until the 
"ball" is finished. 
END

Poor Zakat, You have to run away ^_^

Anyways, after the battle, Jehuty will get the Homing Missle Device Driver,
now you can use the Homing Missle subweapon, and it's useful for the 
upcoming missions......

After this, You will see a loads of LEV's heading for a battle...Which starts
to warn out that Jehuty is nearby.

Cutscene occur, then more and more and more. LEV's Commander Elena Weinberg
will ask you to get off Jehuty since it must not fall into the evil hands
(Dingo is not evil!). Dingo will of course refuse to get down. Leo agrees.
And Elena will become very stubborn, sort of order you to come down.

However, Dingo will start explaining that he is no longer under BAHRAM, and 
his goal is to stop Nohman and destroy Aumaan without letting Ada to self 
destruct. If the LEV's still forcing him to get down, that is equal to his 
death. Since he's going to die again. If killing Dingo for the reason 
of not returning Jehuty to the UNSF, No one is going to stop Aumaan (since 
UNSF will not be able to destroy it). So if that's the UNSF wants, then 
Dingo threathens them to kill himself........But the LEV just stop, knowing 
that this is the rational way to not sacrifice a person who might be able to 
destroy Aumaan. Elena agrees to let Dingo pilot Ada, and gives the command to 
Dingo to stop the massive BAHRAM's forces with 40 LEV's (Including Vic Viper) 
and one Jehuty. You ARE the commander of the 40 LEV's now......

And next, watch the cool cutscene, and then, here comes the Lord Of The Rings : 
The Two Towers - Battle of Helms Deep + Star Wars Battle!

- Now, You'll play as Arag....wait, no, You're still playing as Jehuty! ^_^
- ehh....10 thousand Uru......eh? No!!....It's the BAHRAM's Forces, and not in
the number 10 thousand...That's too much!
- Your enemies will ONLY be Raptors and Naritas, And this mission is a pain in
the ass. I think Battle of Helms Deep is much better.
- Didn't I say before that the Homing missle will be useful? Well, Use it now
Without target the enemy.
- Another way will be using Phalanx, But I suggest you to use both (Mix around)
- Your LEV troops will be blue in color, Vic Viper will be light blue in colour,
You will be purple in color, and the enemies will be in red color.
- This is a long, dammed battle. Everywhere are your enemies, hmm, in a Map
shown, I think there are around 400 enemies in one screen (map) and Yes, you 
have to clear them all, and they will grow even more (around 30 enemies) after 
a while. Mostly due to the slowdown of the game (lacking), it takes around 15
to 20 minutes to clear them all if you're fast enough.
- With 40 LEV's against such a loads of enemies, you'll expect that the 
LEV's will not stand for long? You're correct. Actually, they're nearly 
useless throughout the whole battle, on the exception of sometimes the 
Phantoma's attacks will stun the enemy, giving you chance to save your allies
and IF all the LEV's were destroyed (not including Vic Viper, he's invisible)
Mission will fail, and Game Over. (Very Hard mode is insane!)
- Most of the enemies will focus on the LEV troops, not you. So be smart and
get them away, so to shut the LEV's mouth up (They are annoying, shouting here
and there for help!)
- As I told you, if those enemies come in group, fire them with Phalanx, don't
worry if they guard or not, it will always negate their defense.
- Homming missle will be the most effective way to get them done for. As it
will mostly home on enemies not the LEV's.
- Try not to hurt the LEV's (Yes, this mission have friendly fire mode). 
If those Raptors or Narita's get too close to them, Target the enemies and
slash them out. But try not to hurt your allies. So slash them upwards.
- Grab and Swing the enemy will result on nearby enemies go bye bye ^_^
So mix around with the subweapons and it will make your life easier.
- After a while, The screen will add a tons of enemies. Ada will warn you
that the enemies are fiercely comming through you. (Around 60 enemies 
comming in together)
- Don't worry about Vic Viper, He won't die.
- For a real fun, Try to locate Vic Viper, and grab him, Take him as a weapon
and swing nearby enemies. That is even more effective than using subweapons!
Leo will ask you to stop, but would you care? Since he can't die, Feel free
to grab Vic Viper and do whatever you want to. It last quite a long time too!
^_^
- This battle will test your patient. Almost everything....
- After the battle, It's time to see your results (yes, R-E-S-U-L-T-S!!)

My best record so far:
Mode : Normal

Enemies Killed: 278 enemy (How many enemies throughout this mission is
depends on which difficulty that you are playing.)
LEV left : 29
LEV destroyed : 11
Rank : B
  
Another record of mine:
Mode: Hard

Enemies Killed : 478
LEV left : 10
LEV destroyed : 30 
Rank : B 

Worse Record
Mode : Very Hard

Enemies Killed : 541
LEV left : 2
LEV destroyed : 38
Rank : C

Sigh........T_T

After the long, pain battle. Jehuty will start to "malfunction".....And
Dingo will get very painful, Jehuty will kneel, and a stream of light
will surround him and make him transform!

Once Jehuty gets up. Jehuty will be somewhat changed, With 3 Wisps 
surrounding it. Now, you're controlling Jehuty Ver.2!! (the 0-Shift Jehuty)

Dingo will pant, and Ada will inform Dingo that the Zero Shift program is
successfully installed into Jehuty and now you can use Zero Shift! The most
effective, powerful, useful subweapon of the whole game!

Now, Dingo will have intermission with Leo, and next thing, scene fade.

Now Jehuty will arrive at Aumaan base. Where you're stepping on the
second last stage of this game. Now you'll have cutscenes. And Ada will
say something.....

After the something over....It's time to head down to where Nohman is.
Now, seeing that you have Zero Shift, use it.  
 
Now, even if you're playing Very Hard mode. Those enemies are sought of
like a mosquito to you. You became much more powerful. Any enemy that 
you're facing now will no longer be your opponent. Your Jehuty will have
those advantages listed below:

- Your attacks will double up. Dealing double damage to any enemy you're
facing.
- Your normal shot is now come with 3 directions (Up, Left and Right)
making your normal shot range much wider, even a normal shot with 5-6
streams of continuous fire will kill an enemy! Better than using normal
Jehuty! Don't you?
- Enemy attacks will no longer hurting you, unless the attack is really big.
Small attacks of any enemy will automatically negated even you don't do 
anything. Because Jehuty ver.2 will have advance guard which the 3 wisps 
will automatically protect you from any harm. Now, your guard will not use 
up your subweapon gauge!
- If you make an action, the 3 Wisps will also automatically damage the 
enemies who get very near to you, If you use 0-Shift, it is almost equals
to Hit and Run!
- 0-Shift is a kind of Movement Shifting Teleportation (MST). It's not
entirely a teleport move, it just Jehuty will shift himself from one place
to another. Sort of like moving very fast with a speed of light. So it's
a kind of teleportation (Many people mistook this 0-Shift theory as a 
teleport same as what Anubis have, it's an entirely different story.)
So 0-Shift is very very useful to evade, reach, confuse, and damage
an enemy. Evade is where 0-Shift 100% will evade a direct attack of
one enemy. Reach is where 0-Shift will help you proceed front like
there is no tommorow! Confuse is where 0-Shift will easily make
enemy caught off guard, mainly because enemy likes to block and hit
you after they catch a chance, so when you dash a but to left and right
and immedietely use 0-Shift, the enemy will easily caught off guard and
no longer defending itself. Damage is self explainatory, you're too fast
and will enemy see you move in front to him and make a move? You make 
yourself more unpredictable!
- 0-Shift doesn't use any subweapon gauge, Use it whatever you want to,
never mind with 100 times, 1000 times, or 1000000000000000 times.
- You are much faster in movement now.

Isn't that cool? Anyways, you're now at the descending route, towards
the way to Aumaan center core. So clear every enemy when you see them
Always equip 0-Shift, and kill them quicky. This place also contains
4 ex-mission files for you to find so if you want to know the location,
refer to the secrets section to have a quick glance.

Actually, this place does not need walkthrough, since your only mission
is to clear all the enemies, and proceed foward when the next section is
unlock.

When you pass the first level of the descending route, Ken will contact 
you, telling you that Nohman is waiting for you.........

After this, repeat the process and get down, And get into the tunnel
which leads to the next area.

Now you are at the below path. You'll notice there is a white light
flashing? Well, don't ever get near it. Don't test it, you'll be bacon!
So how to get past it?

- Notice there are steel plates attached on the left/right wall? Grab it
(Switch your subweapon to grab)
- Proceed foward when you can't see the light, When you see it comming 
towards you, Guard! You'll be push back but it won't hurt you, get 
yourself to the front when nothing happens!
- Always grab, defend, and go front until you saw the generator which
actually shoots out that white light.
- When the generator is not charging, Grab the steel plate and throw
at the generator, it will be damaged, so you have to throw more
steel plates to destroy it completely. However, when the generator
is charging or flashing, grab teh steel plate and defend yourself.
- And repeat the process until the generator is completely destroyed.

Now, you've clear a path! Proceed foward and you see another cutscene.
Dingo arrives at the path which block the way to the Aumaan, Leo arrives
and you'll have a talk with him.

After this, get yourself to the flame wall, notice you can't get in?
Ok, land yourself (not on the ground) on the spot where your eye level
still can see the flame wall. Switch your subweapon to V.Cannon, charge
it up, and blast it. You've clear the last path, and next section will
lead you to a boss fight, so get the Metatron behind you and go inside 
the path.....

Now. You'll see Jehuty will flying around Aumaan, watch the cutscene. 
And you'll meet Anubis! and Nohman, but that's a little strange.....
Sounds fishy.... Anyways, you'll be fighting Anubis now.

~BOSS : ANUBIS~
(Controlled by ????)

START
This is really strange, where is Anubis wings? (or is it wings? I don't
know.....) Pretty weak if you ask me.

Use 0-Shift, always mash on circle to reach him, and slash that guy up
with either Swing Sword Slash, or Dash Slash, it's up to you. And Anubis
is very weak on defense, he recieves damage which is greater than the 
past fight.

Nothing really need to worry about him, But always beware of his melee
attack, since it's very damaging. So don't kid about his melee attack.
And when he does his burst attack (looks like blood spliting out from 
Anubis stomach...) dash left and right so that the burst attack will
miss you, and 0-Shift in front of him to slash him back.

The only annoying thing is: Anubis still loves to teleport, so
beware.

Get his health bar to yellow, and always keep your life bar up
After this, a cutscene occur...
END

Jehuty will stop fighting, and Leo will get very angry and charge towards
Anubis in Vic Viper's flight form. It's very cool when he does his burst
attack! But Anubis managed to avoid his laser attack at first (Fortune? 
Helena Dolph Jackson!?), but not his burst attack, and Leo will end his 
attack by stabbing it. He success! But.....

Suddently, another Anubis comes up, and Leo notice but it's too late for
him. In a flash, Anubis counters Vic Viper, and damaged VV really greatly. 
What the hell happend!?

It can't be....!

The person inside damaged Anubis is actually Ken, who is used by Nohman
to lure Jehuty! Nohman actually controled the "fake" Anubis. As Nohman
clonned one of the Anubis out to test Jehuty's performance! Dingo charges
at him, but suddently Nohman unleashes a stream of starlight. Starting to 
break Aumaan down (The effects is very well done!) and Nohman tells Dingo
that this is the power, and the will of the Metatron. And talk something
about Aumaan....But Ken interrupt his words by telling him that this place
where everyone see, is not the real Aumaan!

The real Aumaan, is actually Pheobos (Can someone tell me what does that
mean?) Nohman will tell Dingo something about the origin of the Metatron,
after his trash talk, he will activated more of the power, Jehuty can't 
really stop it, thus the impact damaged Jehuty! Jehuty's part is damaged, 
and his 3 Wisps is gone! 

However, after the talk, and cutscene, Nohman will sent everyone into the
space of Pheobos. Jehuty will chase Anubis, and now it's time to put Anubis
into oblivion!

~BOSS : ANUBIS~
(Controlled by Nohman)  

START
Now that Jehuty is damaged, you're now using Damaged Jehuty, you can no 
longer use long range attacks, along with your subweapons! The only option 
of killing Anubis, is to play Melee with him! Luckily, your 0-Shift is 
still there! Use it!

This is long, pain battle, and might requires you to be patient, and you
might not able to kill him for the first time. Don't get discouraged, you
need get the hang of it. Once you got it, he'll be easier to be dealt with.
Now, he finally defeatable. But it's not easy......

Now, since you can't use Burst Shot and All Way Laser, What you need to do
now is try to get near him by using 0-Shift after you've target Anubis, but
always beware, It mostly comes out with his burst attack. (the attack
when he comes out with a fireball attack, It's body is flashing while doing
this attack, just to give a hint for you in case you don't really know.
Anyway, it's like blood spliting out from his stomach, I do mention it
on the previous strategy.) So dodge it left and right, In case you're
too far from Anubis, you have to dash faster as it's burst attack will
have a higher chance of hitting you if you're very far away from Anubis.
After dodging it, 0-Shift, and you'll get near it, stand still and 
quickly use the Swing Sword Slash to slash Anubis off. 

Beware of his melee attack, once it hits you, it will continue the hit 
until it's done, never give you a chance to get away in between, So what 
you can do is to wait until he perform his melee attack, he will have a 
recovery time so take the opportunity to counter him back. Don't counter
his melee attack unless you know how. The reason why you have to beware
of his melee attack is because : i) It will never give you chance to
get away from it once it hits you. ii) It's very damaging. it's melee
attack will take 35-40% of your health away.

Once you managed to damage Anubis a bit, he will teleport away from you
If you can't manage to hurt Anubis, don't worry, as long as you live, you
definitely get him sometime. Just get near to Anubis and hurt it by using
Swing Sword Slash, if you slash him and it teleports away at the same time.
You're unlucky, but you'll still have chance to get him.

Once Anubis is on yellow bar. Anubis parts will be damaged. And he won't
use the teleport often now. He still loves to teleport, but not much. 
Maintain the same way as before, always get near him and slash him when
he's off guard. But instead of using the burst shot more often, it's 
favourite move is now changed, Once you get near him, beware, always
avoid his burst melee attack (he has it, don't forget he has the same
capability and performance as Jehuty's capability and performance.)
To make things easier, go near it first, once he starts using this 
move (Anubis body will also flash when doing the burst melee attack)
avoid it, and once it's done, go near and use the Swing Sword Slash
since he is recovering from this attack, this will provide enough
time for you to get rid of him.

Once his health bar reached purple, nothing really change from the
2nd phrase of Anubis's movement. So maintain the same strategy until
it's defeated. But always take note here, always beware of it's melee
attack. To make things easier, memorize his move first rather than 
actually go in front and slap Anubis. You'll feel better this way.
END

Once Nohman and Anubis is defeated, oh yeah, he deserves to have
at least try the true power of Jehuty! You'll notice Anubis will start
transfering it's glowing into Jehuty. And Jehuty will recover from 
the damage and transforms into his ultimate form, Naked Jehuty. 
(sounds odd...and gives me an impression of Grey Fox...) You will 
dash away and get the damaged Anubis and damaged Vic Viper into
a safe place.

Now, you've arrived at Pheobos. you're now at the center of Aumaan.
After this, Elena Weinberg will contact you, and begs you to stop
Aumaan, and put the end of everything. Dingo (I couldn't get a
thing he says, but he mostly agree, or not there will be no story
isn't it?)

Anubis will drop down from the sky, and crushed. Naked Jehuty must
check his "brother" out, and also check out what's going to happend 
to Nohman....

- Press L2, and locate three of the Ex-mission files scatter around
One is on the sky, two of them is on the ground, look everywhere.
- Follow the arrow.

Dingo will tell Nohman to stop now, since it's all over, but things
doesn't go what Dingo thinks, Nohman will laugh, and tells you that
his scheme will success no matter how hard Dingo try to stop him,
thus Anubis will drop into the core of Aumaan........ 
   
After the cutscene once more, you will play as Naked Jehuty for now.
Too strong, Who needs the 3 wisps when your 0-Shift can actually hurt
people when someone get too close to you? You still have the advance
guard. He's ultimately insane in terms of power, and speed!

Your enemy around this area is actually a surprise : Nephtis! And
comes in pairs! But a shot from Jehuty will kill it straight away,
and you get Metatron from every Respawned Nephtis that you killed.
You still have 2 more Ex-Mission files scatter around during fighting
Respawned Nephtis, so find around, The place that you are now is not
big, it actually small compare to the other stages, so it's quite
easy to find those ex-mission files.

Once you're done, follow the arrow............

Naked Jehuty will jump in............

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Inside Aumaan...
The Core....

You'll see Anubis, and it's different...very very different.........
Cutscene will come, and you will fight the very last boss : Aumaan Anubis

~BOSS : AUMAAN ANUBIS~
(Controlled by Nohman)
The Final Battle

START
Naked Jehuty VS Aumaan Anubis, the ultimate showdown.

Basically nothing to worry about this guy, he's weaker compare to the
previous Anubis. Except that he's much faster. Since he's very fast,
use 0-Shift to get near him

Maintain the same way on how you fight Anubis in the previous battle, 
with the exception of don't really use the Swing Sword Slash anymore, 
normal 4 hit combo will hurt it a lot, and much faster, the previous 
battle don't require you to do combo is because Anubis will only take 
one hit and teleports away, while Aumaan Anubis doesn't.

But beware of his it's burst attack, Now, this attack accuracy is very high.
And if you don't use the All Way Laser to negate it, you'll have a trouble
avoiding it unless you hide behind the obstacle (the center core).

It's melee attack is slow, but still need to take care, It's melee doesn't 
really give much damage to you at all (You're controlling Naked Jehuty after 
all...). But prepare to face the worst, you don't want to lose right?

Basically just hit and run, after a while, Aumaan Anubis will tremble, and
no longer functional, you won!
END  

Dingo will charge at Nohman, and say something about Dingo's comrades who
all died 6 years ago (Nohman left them died....Well, I don't really know
until The 2nd Runner is released ) 
     
You will prepare to give a final shot at Nohman, do whatever you want to.
You can't grab it. So be a good guy, give him a last slash, and he will
begone forever from this game. 

As for the ending, I won't spoil it. Enjoy!~ (You've earned it, and I 
leave the spoilers to the other FAQers if they want to spoil it.)
