     To navigate much easier through this guide, I added the search system, which
    works just by following these simple steps:
    
    - Highlight the "Section Code" of the section which you wish to go and copy it
      (CTRL+C).
    
    - Press CTRL+F to bring up the search sub-menu.
    
    - Paste the "Section Code" and press ENTER twice to be where you wanted to be.
      Just like magic!
    
     My Section Codes were made as precise as possible, and I also prefer this
    method instead of having you scroll 30 min through this guide looking for the
    section you want to go.

     Welcome once again to  another FAQ  made  by me, vinheim. This game is totally
    different from  the games  I  usually  play (I always  play  RPG's  and Action-
    Adventure games, and some spying  games like Splinter Cell). This  game  rocks,
    it's different of all the games Capcom has been making, and you'll surely fall
    in  love  with  the  main  character. Anyway, I  hope you enjoy this game  and
    guide  as  much  as  I did. So with  this  little  said, let   us   begin.
    
    Now allow me to take note on some things:
    
    - My walkthrough is pretty dry to me. I'm writing this  for  free  and  because
      I   enjoyed  this game, but than "enjoyed", I love it. If you are looking for
      tons  of  eloquent  ways for me to say "enter here and kill the enemies", you
      are  going  to  be  so disappointed.  This guide is way, way too big to begin
      with, and lofty language does not help.
    
    - If you take a quick scan  thru my guide, you  won't find the explanations for
      battling system, saving-loading, etc. Why, you  ask? Well,  because the  game
      manual and in-game tutorials do a  perfect  job  explaining  the  everything.
    
    - The spoilers  are  great  issues in making guides. I am a player of the game,
      just like you are. The first time   I played through this game was completely
      by myself. I didn't use any guides, therefore nothing was spoiled for me. All
      the story's ups and downs that were  supposed to surprise me had such effect.
      And I really think it's not fair spoiling such story elements to you.
    
     With all this said, let's start with the guide! Enjoy  this guide and remember
    that it is a spoiler-free, so you don't  have to worry about  important info of
    the game being spoiled.

     According to legend, 2000 years ago while snow was falling on a clear,
    freezing night on Earth, a fierce devil prince was born deep in the
    darkest pit of the netherworld.
    
     He grew rapidly. Within a short time he gained his full powers and took
    into the Devil Throne. His first act as a ruler of all devils was to
    declare himself emperor of the Devil Kingdom. His next feat was an
    invasion of the human world. His plan was to conquer it and rule over
    both the lower and upper realms.
    
     But a powerful devil-knight known as Sparda took pity on humans for
    their brief, transient lives. In fierce battles he defeated all the
    Devil ruler's armies and finally imprisoned him in a sealed vault.
    
     Having achieved his victory, Sparda abandoned the Devil Kingdom to live
    in the human world. He married a human woman and soon fathered a half
    devil, half man son.
    
     But beware, mankind. After 2000 years, the cursed Devil Emperor will be
    released and will return to invade the human world once again.
    
     Sparda's son must be our protector!

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

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

    warrior from hell. If he is truly a practitioner of honor, why does he follow

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

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

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

    |                           _  |
    | Obtainable Weapons.......[_] |   Once you start, you'll see that you'll be
    | Blue Orb Fragments....... _4 |  trapped inside, so hope you got the Blue
    | Yellow Orb...............[_] |  Orb Fragment, as well as the Yellow Orb.
    | Secret Missions..........[_] |  So, from where you start, go left and you'll
    | Divinity Statues.........  1 |  see some debris left by the broken stairs.
    |                              |  Use the wall to jump kick to a second floor
    o------------------------------o  and get 'Blue Orb Fragment'. Might be a
                                      little late, but let me tell you about this
    room. There are three floors in this main hall, and two doors; one is sealed
    with a "red seal" (these need Red Orbs in order to open up), and the other is
    locked. So start checking the whole main hall and getting all the Red Orbs.
    There are 45 Red Orbs in total, but there are 100 secret Red Orbs. See the
    horse and knight statue in middle of the room? Go on top the horse's head and
    jump on top the Halberd. It may look impossible, but it is possible.
    
     Pay 45 Red Orbs to the Sealed Door to go to the next room. In here, break the
    armors at the left side of the room to get 'Blue Orb Fragment', now enter the
    door. Break all the objects here to find some Red Orbs. Now go in the door and
    follow the staircase to the next floor, then enter the next door. In here, jump
    in the left pool to find yet another 'Blue Orb Fragment', which should be your
    fourth, incrementing your Vitality by 10%.
    
     Return to the previous room and jump to the third floor through the hole in
    the roof you're shown in the little scene. On top, check the red puppet and get
    'Rusty Key' from it's hand. When you try walking away, the puppet awakes,
    revealing a Bloody Mary and another Marionette. This is your very first fight,
    so try any moves you want. When you go to the previous floor, the Marionette
    awakes to and attacks you.
    
     Go to the Main Hall and use the Rusty Key you just got to open the left door.
    In here, you'll see several Marionettes sleeping, but won't awake just yet.
    Instead, go to the top of the airplane and get another 'Blue Orb Fragment'.
    Also, stay put on top of the propeller to have some Red Orbs come down. Now go
    to the far corner of the room to find two armors hiding a clock-like with
    glyphs. Hit it until it fills the little glyphs. Once you descend, kill the
    Marionettes that appear and when the wooden gates open for a second wave, check
    for the Marionette that has a Shotgun (it's not 100% sure to appear every time,
    but just try looking for it, because he's the most dangerous Marionette). He
    can take a good chunk of damage off of you, so take it out quick.
    
     Return to the Airplane Room and kill all the Marionettes that you saw
    "sleeping" before. Once you're done, enter the red double doors shown in the
    scene and finish the first Mission.

    | Obtainable Weapons...Alastor |   From where you start, go up and enter the
    |                      Shotgun |  door next to the painting. Break all the
    | Blue Orb Fragments....... _1 |  objects to find some Red Orbs, but more
    | Yellow Orb...............[_] |  importantly, a 'Blue Orb Fragment'. Also,
    | Secret Missions..........[_] |  remember this room, because there's a Secret
    | Divinity Statues.........  1 |  Mission up ahead. Exit this room and follow
    |                              |  the hall and some Marionettes will appear to
    o------------------------------o  have some fun with you. Afterwards, examine
                                      the sword stuck in the wall to trigger a
    really kick ass scene. You'll receive Alastor, a sword with lightning
    elemental. Finally say bye-bye to Force Edge, forever. Anyway, enter the door
    that's before where Alastor was.
    
     In this library-type room, break the objects on the second floor to find the
    'Shotgun'. Now examine the painting the with a blue shine to get a 'Rusty Key'.
    Remember the double doors that were to your left when you were fighting the
    Marionettes? It's in middle of the hall. Go there and open the door to reach a
    fountain yard.
    
     You'll be greeted by a lot of Marionettes, so have fun with them. Also, the
    Alastor and Shotgun make a deadly combination against the Marionettes, so
    they'll be easier than before, if that's possible. Also, step on top of the
    fountain to get some Red Orbs. Now enter the door at the right hand on the
    second floor. A seal will appear over the door; these White Sealed Doors mean
    that you need to kill all enemies in order to lift up the seal. When you're
    over with them, hit some kind of golden coffin to reveal a secret path.
    
     Grab the 'Staff of Judgement' and a path will open. Try leaving the room and a
    new enemy appears to attack you, the Sin Scissors (one of my best friends, Ed,
    says that these are his girlfriends... why?... I don't know... he has some
    bizarre tastes in women... lol). I think there are three of them, so to make
    this quick, just shoot them with the Shotgun. Beware that if your near them
    when they die, you might get hit by the scissors they have.
    
     Anyway, equip the Handguns and exit the room. You'll see several mini spiders
    running around, use the Handguns to kill them, because each one gives a
    whooping 1 Red Orb (wow... o_o). Now use the Staff of Judgement on the statue
    where Alastor was to end the Mission.
    
     Before starting the next mission, make sure to buy Alastor's Stinger-level 1
    skill, because it'll prove to be SO useful in the next mission.

    |                           _  |
    | Obtainable Weapons.......[_] |   Hope you bought Stinger-level 1. When you
    | Blue Orb Fragments....... _2 |  start, go to the lowest side of the room
    | Yellow Orb...............[_] |  (right in front of the large double doors)
    | Secret Missions.......... _1 |  and examine the Pride of Lion, surrounded by
    | Divinity Statues.........[_] |  a pillar of light. It'll break the curse that
    |                              |  was set on the door, so take them to reach a
    o------------------------------o  bridge. Before anything, jump on top of the
                                      arch above the door you just used to get some
    Red Orbs. Afterwards, go to the end of the bridge, get the Red orbs and examine
    the object in the middle.
    
     Once it says something about sending you to the Abyss, return just to be
    stroked by lightning. Once underwater (I think we are underwater), move to the
    open area, but quickly, because Dante's health is decreasing. Step on the black
    mirror-like thing to have a new enemy appear, the Sargasso. There are six of
    them, so take them all out with the Shotgun. Afterwards, get the Green Orb left
    by the last Sargasso and exit this water cage through the light pillar.
    
     Once out and safe, return to the top of the arch above the doors (where you
    got the secret Red Orbs from before) and Stinger towards the nothingness to
    reach a floating piece of bridge and have a 'Blue Orb Fragment' drop out of
    nowhere. Now jump from platform to platform back to where you examined the
    mirror-thing in the middle. There's another 'Blue Orb Fragment' over here, so
    that's another complete Blue Orb.
    
     If you can't do it, just jump into the ocean, kill the Sargasso and leave the
    cage to appear at the other side of the bridge. Now enter the Cathedral and
    examine the 'Pride of Lion' to obtain it. Also a scene triggers in where a
    spider named Phantom appears to have some fun with you.
    
    -----------------------
    Boss #1 - Phantom (1st)
    -----------------------
    
     Ok, Phantom is easy, if you know how to deal with it. People say it's too
    difficult, but I say the complete opposite. Just stay close to him and always
    having R1 pressed. Shoot him with your Shotgun at all time and whenever you see
    that he's going to attack you, jump backwards to evade the attack. Whenever you
    see him jump backwards, he's about to use a fireball attack. To counter this
    (this is why I told you to stay close to it and to buy Stinger), once he's
    preparing the fireball, Stinger him in the mouth to make him swallow the
    fireball and receiving more extra damage. Also he has an attack where he hides
    his head underground. Start running without stopping and all the fire pillars
    will miss.
    
     Also remember to use the Devil Trigger, because he's faster and more dangerous
    this way.
    
    -----------------------
    
     After the scene, return to the bridge and drop down into the water to trigger
    the very first Secret Mission.

                 -- "Aim for its weak point and defeat it with one single shot." --
    
    
     This Secret Mission is kinda hard. You have to kill the Sin Scissor in one
    attack. Wait until he's in front of you. When he's about to attack you, hit him
    with Alastor to break his guard. When this happens, he'll down his scissors for
    a bit. Approach him as near as you can and put a Shotgun bullet through his
    mask. If you killed him in one shot, you did it.
    
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     Now return to where you defeated Phantom and go through the doors to return to
    the hallway and end this mission. Please, if you can afford it, buy Alastor's
    Air Raid. It'll come in handy in the next mission.

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

     If you start running down the hallway, you'll have Phantom chasing you. If you
    want to kill it, keep running until you get to the end of the hallway. If not,
    get in the door that leads to the fountain that is almost next to you, then
    return to the hallway and complete the third Secret Mission. If you decided to
    kill Phantom, keep reading. If not, skip to where you see [~~~].
    
     As you run down the hallway, Phantom will start shooting fireballs at you.
    Jump just a bit before he releases it. When you get to the end of the hallway,
    use your Devil Trigger, jump and use Air Raid. You can kill it with just 4
    Symbols, so do so. Once you've killed it, you'll receive 500 Red Orbs.

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

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

     Alright, another fragment of a Blue Orb. Finally, go in the door where the
    fountain is and examine the purple wall of light and use the Pride of Lion.
    Destroy the statue behind the barrier to have a new type of enemy appear... the
    Shadow. Beware, after the small scene, evade the attack, or it'll hurt and a
    lot. To kill this type of enemy, shoot it with your Handguns while evading it's
    attacks until you see that an Orb appears above it. Once this happens, use the
    DT and start attacking this "core" with sword attacks. Keep this until the
    Shadow starts flashing red. At this point, it's going to kill itself, but it's
    going to try and take you with it. Just evade it's attacks until it dies.
    
     Before anything, return to the Airplane room and go to the area where you
    fought 2 waves of Marionettes in Mission 1, to trigger Secret Mission 4.

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

     After the battle, return to where you fought your first Shadow and enter the
    door that was shown to you in the scene after killing the Shadow. In here, go
    to the top, then jump on the platform right next to you and grab 'Death
    Sentence'. You might have passed a double door. Return to it and open it.
    
     Once in here, jump on top of the bed to receive some Red Orbs. Now examine the
    statue with a golden glow and use the Death Sentence to receive "Melancholy
    Soul", then trigger a scene. Now go outside and jump down to trigger a fight
    with Nelo Angelo.
    
    ---------------------------
    Boss #2 - Nelo Angelo (1st)
    ---------------------------
    
     Nelo Angelo... what can I say about him? He has some attacks similar to
    Dante's. Once he jumps off the building, run to him and attack him. If you're
    attacking and he blocks, jump backwards or roll over. When charging an Energy
    Ball, get away from him and try rolling out of the way. When you've dealt 1/3
    of his HP, he'll teleport to a higher platform. Same deal here, except that the
    space that you have to fight is reduced significantly. Once you've dealt 2/3 of
    it's HP, he'll move to an even higher place. So follow him just to find out
    that the space is smaller, but that's not it. The camera angle up here sucks,
    so it's really hard to keep a good eye on him.
    
    ---------------------------
    
     Once you're done with him, a scene triggers and the Mission Ends.

                                      tower-like at the upper right corner (you
    might as well use Alastor's Air Raid to float in the air) to get a 'Blue Orb
    Fragment'. Also, jump on another tower (where Nelo was standing in the scene
    previous to the fight) at the upper left corner to find some Red Orbs and an
    Untouchable (kick ass item, let me tell you).
    
     Now go down the hole, enter the room where Nelo appeared, exit through the
    other door and in the main tower, jump to the bottom and insert the Melancholy
    Soul in the door to end this mission. I did 1:43 and got 150 Red Orbs and got
    an S-rank, so try to do it as well.

    | Secret Missions..........[_] |  through the sewers and when you get to a
    | Divinity Statues.........[_] |  semi-large area, enter the door to your
    |                              |  right. Go to the end of this room and find a
    o------------------------------o  'Rusty Key', and also a new type of enemy
                                      appears, the Beelzebub. Just use your Shotgun
    to kill all of them, then exit the room to find even more Beelzebubs. Kill them
    if you want and proceed north and use the Rusty Key to open the double doors.
    
     Follow the path and if you need health, enter the opening you'll see to your
    right. Otherwise, keep following the path until a little scene kicks in and
    you'll have to fight another new enemy, the Death Scissors.
    
     This is the second hardest normal enemy in the game, IMO. A good strategy is
    to use Air Raid all the way until he dies. Also, sword weapons are good against
    it.
    
     Once it's over, go to the end of the path and get 'Guiding Light' to end this

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

    path until a scene kicks in and you'll have to fight Phantom one last time.
    
    -----------------------
    Boss #3 - Phantom (2nd)
    -----------------------
    
     Phantom this time has the same attacks plus a few others. He has two forms:
    his spider one, which you must know by now and a scorpion-like form. His weak
    points are his abdomen and mouth, so try aiming there. Also, he has a new
    fireball attack, in which he'll throw at you five raining fireballs, one behind
    another. Just like with the lava pillars, just run to avoid them. Air Raid is
    your best ally for this fight, because with 5 Rune Symbols, you can take almost
    half oh Phantoms health. He really isn't that hard, so go for it with all
    you've got.
    
    -----------------------
    
     Watch the scene after the battle and when you regain control, instead of
    dropping through the path behind the gate, use Stinger to get a 'Blue Orb
    Fragment'. Also stand on the little pillar on the right side for some Red Orbs.
    Now grab the 'Trident' and go down the hole in between the horses.
    
     Hit the shining lever to open a path. Go to it and before going down, grab the
    'Grenadegun' and go down. You'll be in a very familiar room. Before exiting,
    use the Trident on the artifact in between the pools to have a gate open in the
    room below, but you have time so, run like the wind, using the DT.
    
     Once you've crossed, jump in the right pool to find a 'Blue Orb Fragment'. Now
    exit through the door to end this mission.

    | Obtainable Weapons.....Ifrit |   As you start, cross the bridge and at the
    | Blue Orb Fragments.......  1 |  end, it'll go up, being impossible to enter
    | Yellow Orb............... _3 |  now. You'll have to wait several Missions
    | Secret Missions..........[_] |  until the gate is able to be opened lowered
    | Divinity Statues.........  2 |  again. When you get to a large area with
    |                              |  pillars, jump on the second one on your left
    o------------------------------o  side to find some Red Orbs. Now jump on top
                                      of the first and third ones from your right
    side for more Red Orbs. Now examine behind the tombstone to find a 'Devil
    Star'. Proceed and go down the circular stairs until you reach a door. Enter
    it.
    
     At this large area, walk down the stairs to trigger a scene where you're
    introduced to a new enemy, the Blade. A good weapon to use against these is the
    Grenadegun, so fire at will. Now, from the entrance, follow the upper right
    path to find a lone tombstone. Hit it several times to reveal a 'Blue Orb
    Fragment'.
    
     Now locate the path that has blue lights that leads to an opened gate. Before
    entering the gate, go left, up the structure there to find a 'Holy Water. Now
    go in the gate. At the top of the area, get a 'Devil Star' from the left side
    and a 'Yellow Orb' from the right side. Now go to the center of this walkway
    and hit the clock here to activate several moving platforms.
    
     Move through them with a lot of caution, because you'll get so pissed off when
    you fall. Once you reach the top, examine the spark to trigger a kick ass scene
    and receive the Devil's Arms 'Ifrit'. Return now to the previous area to
    trigger a scene and then a Boss Fight.
    
    -----------------------
    Boss #4 - Griffon (1st)
    -----------------------
    
    Griffon... easiest boss of all the game. The best way to damage it is with
    either the Handguns or the Grenadegun. Also Air Raid is a very good thing to
    use against Griffon. When he gets knocked out, approach him and use DT to kick
    the hell out of it, using Alastor of course. There's really not much to say
    about Griffon, but time well his attacks so you can anticipate them, evade them
    and then attack him.
    
    -----------------------
    
     After the fight, follow the upper right path (has blue lights, just like the
    previous path) and hit the right side of the door with Ifrit to open the door.
    In this forest-like room, before anything, move towards you left (yours, not
    Dante's) and try wall jumping to a platform above for some Red Orbs, but more
    importantly, a 'Holy Water'.
    
     Return to the floor and follow the path, try opening the door to trigger a
    rather spooky scene. A new enemy appears before you, the Fetish. It's pretty
    similar to the Marionettes, but stronger. Also look for a broken tree in middle
    of the area. Jump on it to find some hidden Red Orbs.
    
     Now enter the door and when you get to some stairs, jump over the ledge on
    your left to find a stone that has Red Orbs. Hit it, hit it, hit it... until it
    breaks. Also break the tombstone to find a 'Devil Star' behind it. The door
    that you need to use to continue with the story has a red seal, so pay up 200
    Red Orbs to go in and finish this mission. If you don't have enough, kill some
    Fetishes until you have at least 200 Red Orbs.

    | Secret Missions..........[_] |  you see a little white ball setting at the

    |                              |  inside of an enemy. Kill that enemy to have
    o------------------------------o  the white orb come out again. Keep following
                                      the orb wherever it goes. If it goes inside a
    monster, kill it; if not, run towards the exit it takes you to. Same goes for
    the next 2 areas. Also, the first area has Marionettes and Fetishes; the second
    area, Sin Scythes; and the third one, Blades.
    
     Once you're out of the labyrinth, kill the Kyklops (I really recommend using
    Air Raid) and go to the left side of the area to find a 'Holy Water'. Now go in

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

                           -- "Acquire the Blue Orb that's floating in the air". --
    
    
     Ok, it'll take you about 15 seconds to finish this Secret Mission. All you
    have to do is use the Sin Scissors as a "wall" and jump on them until you reach
    the Blue Orb Fragment. Yep, that's it.
    
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     Once inside, where the Death Scythe is, how to kill it? Ok, I've discovered a
    very good way, easy and quick to kill him. Stand still, with the Shotgun in one
    hand and Alastor on the other. Keep pressed R1 to keep track of where he is.
    Good so far? (I've barely said anything... lol) Start shooting at him over and
    over and you'll notice that he'll start raising, little by little. Once he's at
    the top point, he'll do a freefall attack. Jump it and land with an attack
    (press X / [] while in midair). This way, you'll evade the attack, plus hurting
    him, a lot.
    
     Keep this tactic until he's dead. Afterwards, a moving platform will appear
    and start moving. Go to the top of the room, right above the door you used to
    get in here, to find a 'Devil Star'. Now go to the top most of the left side
    and find a glass floor. Go to the bottom of it to find a 'Blue Orb Fragment'.
    Now go in the well near the entrance door to be greeted by a lot of Blades.
    
     Kill them all, then break the wall near the Statue of Divinity to have more
    Blades come to play. If you kill them all, you'll receive a 'Blue Orb
    Fragment'. At the end of the path, grab the 'Sign of Chastity' and return to
    the first area.
    
     Go to the other side of the area and enter the bottom door. Use the Sign of
    Chastity to receive the 'Chalice'. The doors will lock again, and Nelo appears
    to try to kick your ass.
    
    ---------------------------
    Boss #5 - Nelo Angelo (2nd)
    ---------------------------
    
     Once again, Nelo Angelo. He has the same attacks as before, plus some more
    that look a lot like Dante's moves when he has Ifrit equipped. To me, he's
    easier than before. Also, a good strategy I used (and discovered while writing
    this), is to use Alastor, and while in Devil Form, attack him with the sword
    non stop, even if he blocks. This way, when you make him take his "shield" off,
    you'll keep hitting him, and staggering him, so do it Fast and Furious. Also,
    if your DT empties, use your Handguns to refill them, or Taunt Nelo using R2.
    
    ---------------------------
    
     After the scene, jump on top of the arches that are on both sides of the area,
    then Stinger to reach a platform. From here, use Stinger again to reach the
    other side of the area. Insert the Chalice to have a door open underneath you.
    Go there to finish this mission.

    | Yellow Orb...............[_] |  Marionettes on your way down and at the
    | Secret Missions..........[_] |  bottom, break the Red Orb Stone then jump
    | Divinity Statues.........[_] |  into the water. Once in here, look for an
    |                              |  opening on the ship and go in. There will be
    o------------------------------o  a Blade in here, but you still don't have a
                                      weapon for underwater battles, so let it live
    for a little bit. You'll also see a Red Orb on top of the Blade. Before
    anything, check the right side of the hole you used to came in here to get an
    'Untouchable'. Now face the surface and swim towards it to get out of the
    water, then go up the stairs.
    
     There will be 2 Blades up here, so kill them any way you want. Afterwards, go
    to the other side of the room and examine the spark to find the 'Needlegun',
    also examine the treasure chest behind the weapon to find a 'Devil Star'. Now
    you can finally kick some asses underwater. Now go down the stairs next to
    where the Needlegun was, kill the Blade and get some Red Orbs. Return upstairs
    and go up another 2 set of stairs to exit the ship.
    
     Ok now... you'll see three pillars on the deck. All three of them have hidden
    Red Orbs on several branches, so go get them all. Also, go to the top of the
    southern most pillar and from there, Stinger to the southern part of the deck
    to receive a 'Blue Orb Fragment'. Now examine the door that has two glowing
    swords crossed to trigger a little scene.
    
     A Death Scythe appears before you. Kill it the same way you killed the
    previous one. Now check the door again to trigger a spooky scene where the boat
    takes of. And uh-oh, a familiar face appears to play with you... or should I
    say 5 faces?
    
    -----------------------
    Boss #6 - Griffon (2nd)
    -----------------------
    
    Ok, Griffon got a lot harder this time. He almost starts all the time throwing
    a red bird-like thing that's connected to you and damage you each time it
    passes through you. You must shoot it as fast as you can (I really recommend
    the Handguns) to get rid of it. Also, when Griffon stands still on the deck,
    he'll be about to start another new attack where he'll throw lightning through
    the whole deck. Keep pressed R1 and when the lightning is about to hit you,
    roll over to evade it. That's it. The rest is the same as the previous Griffon.

    |                              |  Blades in here and proceed to the exit.
    o------------------------------o  Yes, that's it. BTW, if you just kill the two
                                      first Blades, then you rush to the exit, you
    will get an S-rank mission, awarding you 1,500 Red Orbs (I did 55 seconds and
    got 66 Red Orbs).
    
     Ok, once you finish Mission 13, Mission 14 will not start right away, so time
    to get some things. Return inside the ship and go to the room where the
    Needlegun was. Go down the stairs to be greeted by 3 Blades, but more
    importantly, a 'Blue Orb Fragment'.
    
     Now return to the Captain's Room (where you got the Staff of Hermes) and check
    the corpse of the captain to trigger a Secret Mission.

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

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

    |                           _  |
    | Obtainable Weapons.......[_] |   Start by following the path until you see a
    | Blue Orb Fragments.......  2 |  Skeleton stuck in the wall (you'll also
    | Yellow Orb............... _1 |  notice the locked gate on your way here,
    | Secret Missions..........[_] |  remind it). Examine it to get the 'Emblem
    | Divinity Statues.........  1 |  Shield'. Also activate the skeleton's arm
    |                              |  to have the gate open and a trap start. Now
    o------------------------------o  go to the gate while avoiding the spikes by
                                      jumping and stand on the platform to get to a
    waterfall area.
    
     You'll be under a chapel-like roof. Use the pillars on the front to wall jump
    and get on top of it. Now Stinger towards the little ledge and make your way up
    to find a 'Yellow Orb'. From here, Stinger towards the right side of the screen
    and if done right, you'll land on a ledge that has a 'Blue Orb Fragment' on it.
    
     Now jump to the bottom of the area and go under the waterfall to get a 'Holy
    Water'. Now go in the opening just in front of the platform you used to get up
    here.
    
     In this area will be either Shadows, Blades (two and a huge black one) or a
    Death Scythe. Whichever they are, kill them or ignore them and do the
    following: Go in the first opening that you come across and has torches on each
    side. Go to the top, cross the bridge and go left to find a Red Orb Stone. Hit
    it until it breaks and then go right from the bridge to drop on a ledge with a
    'Blue Orb Fragment'.
    
     Now jump to the bottom and enter the opening and pay 200 Red Orbs to enter the
    door. There are semi infinite Marionettes in the area, so fight as many as you
    like. Also get the 'Devil Star' from the left side and get some hidden Red Orbs
    on the right side (next to the red sealed door). Now pay 100 Red Orbs to the
    door and enter the next door to finish the mission.

     You'll need a lot of patience for this one. After examining the skull, a
    Shadow will come out, so evade as soon as you have control. I really recommend
    using the Shotgun or if you're quick enough, the Handguns. Also use Ifrit with
    the Kick13 skill. Stay near the area where the Shadow came out from, so you
    don't awake the other 2 Shadows (they'll awake eventually) and start shooting
    at the Shadow until the core appears. Once this happens, use your DT and while
    in DT, use Kick13 to have Dante perform a quick ass combo. Do 2 times this
    combo on each Shadow. It should be easy enough.
    
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     Now return to the start of the mission and run to the opposite side of the
    area (following the blue lights)to find a closed door. From here, there are two
    areas you need to go in. To the left is the blue room and to the right is the
    red room. I'll explain both, but in the first door you enter, you'll receive
    the Pair of Lances and the last door you enter will net you the Nightmare-?.
    Also, go in the Red Room and jump under the platform that has the Pair of
    Lances/Nightmare-? to have a Blue Orb Fragment appear. I'll write for both
    rooms, so here we go (I first entered the Red room and then the Red room):
    
    ..:: Red Room ::..
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Go to the opposite of the room, grab the 'Luminite' from the stone to the
    right and kill the Fetish. This enables Dante to light a certain radius of the
    room (depends of where he is). Now go downstairs and kill another 2 Fetishes.
    Also break the cracked wall on the right side to find a lot of breakable
    objects which contain Red Orbs and a 'Yellow Orb'. Return to the hall where the
    Fetishes were and go in the door.
    
    There are no enemies here, but instead, there were 2 rune clocks placed, so hit
    them, being really cautious with the spikes. Anyway, the first door on your
    left leads to a path where your DT refills, so take advantage of it. Move to
    the end of the path, drop down, ignoring the paths you created. Kill both
    Blades and then start jumping under a little platform until you see a Blue Orb
    Fragment appear. Return to the top, cross the bridges to find a 'Pair of
    Lances' and the 'Blue Orb Fragment'. Now go out to have Sin Scythes appear
    instead of Blades/Kyklops.
    
     Now go in the Blue Door.
    
    ..:: Blue Room ::..
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Go downstairs and kill 3 Fetishes. Also break the cracked wall on the left
    side to find a lot of breakable objects which contain Red Orbs, a 'Holy Water',
    and a 'Blue Orb Fragment'. Return to the hall where the Fetishes were and go in
    the door.
    
    There will be some Sin Scythes here to greet you, so dispose of them, but
    beware of the really tight space you have, as well as the moving floor and the
    spikes at the back and the ones coming out of the wall. Also, the "fountain"
    where you could recharge your DT is also here. When you get to the end, you'll
    see that floor has purple goo-like. You can use Air Raid to cross it and grab
    the 'Nightmare-?'. This weapon is my most hated and unused Firearm, why?!
    Because, when you charge it, it uses 3 complete DT Symbols, and the only thing
    it does is bounce.
    
     Now go to the closed door and use the Pair of Lances to enter the Coliseum.
    Before stepping on the cyan glyph in middle of the area, go to the top of the
    structure using either portal at both sides of this area. Up here, get the
    'Blue Orb Fragment' by jumping in the middle. Now step on the cyan glyph to
    trigger a scene with Griffon for the third and last time.
    
    -----------------------
    Boss #7 - Griffon (3rd)
    -----------------------
    
    Ok, Griffon got a lot harder this time. He almost starts all the time dashing
    towards you. But that's easy to evade. He's the same old Griffon from the ship.
    Also, once you've taken 1/3 of it's HP, you'll break his wing, thus being
    unable to fly. He'll become berserk, so evade all his physical attacks, using
    Air Raid, of course. He also has a new attack, in which he creates several
    lightning pillars that advance towards you. Time them well to evade them, as
    they take a lot of health. ;P
    
    -----------------------
    
     After the fight, watch the scene involving Trish, then jump into the central
    pillar (the one that squashed Griffon). Now grab the 'Wheel of Destiny' to end
    this mission.

     Ok, this mission is like the one where you needed to jump on the Sin Scissors.
    You need to jump all the way to the top of the stairway of Sargasso to find a
    Blue Orb Fragment at the top. It may take a while, but you'll do it soon
    enough. BTW, the Sargasso don't attack.
    
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     Once at the area where you fought Griffon for the first time, before returning
    to the castle, go to where you got Ifrit to get an 'Untouchable'. Now return to
    the castle and insert the Wheel of Destiny to have the drawbridge come down,
    allowing you to enter the castle once again.
    
     The castle is dark as hell, but thank goodness that we got that Luminite. At
    the main hall (where you started the game), jump on top of the horse's head to
    have a 'Blue Orb Fragment' appear. Now simply Stinger towards it. Now check the
    lower level, at the right side for another 'Blue Orb Fragment'.
    
     Hit the rune clock on the opposite side of where you entered to trigger a
    scene where a new enemy appears, the Plasma. These are the most annoying
    enemies in the game, IMO. When you're attacking them, the may split, being more
    Plasmas to fight. Anyway, kill it to have the seal removed.
    
     Go to the hall from the airplane room and here, go left (Dante's) and jump
    under the face on top of the painting to have a another 'Blue Orb Fragment'
    appear. Now go to the end of the hall and enter the Cathedral, the place where
    you fought your very first boss fight.
    
     Hit the rune clock right next to you and quickly examine the puddle in middle
    of the room to trigger a Boss Fight.
    
    -------------------------
    Boss #8 - Nightmare (1st)
    -------------------------
    
     Nightmare, hardest boss in all the game. He's simply so powerful, that it's
    worth writing all attacks and everything about him.
    
     Nightmare has two forms, liquid and solid. When he's liquid, hit any of the
    rune clocks until it fills to have Nightmare gets solid. He also, just like the
    Shadows, has a core, which can appear either in his ass, or over his back. He
    has 2 attacks when it comes out of his ass and 1 attack when it comes over his
    back.
    
    Maggots: An attack that he has when in liquid form. He'll send "maggots"
             towards you, sticking to you and exploding, turning the place into a
             small iceberg. Simply run to shake them off
    
    Swallow: Another attack when he's in his liquid form. A "mouth" similar to the
             ones the Shadows have will try and engulf you from the bottom, taking
             to another "dimension". Simply jump to avoid it. Also, in this first
             battle with Nightmare, you'll have to fight Phantom in this other
             dimension. At the second fight, you'll have to kill Griffon and at the
             third, you'll have to fight Nelo.
    
    Machine Gun: When Nightmare turns to his solid form, the first thing he'll do
                 is use this attack. Simply run to avoid the attack.
    
    Claw: This is one attack that he uses when the core comes right out of behind.
          He'll try to impale you three times, so be really careful. The claw comes
          out of his left side.
    
    Pin Missile: Another attack from behind. I highly recommend having Ifrit's
                 Rolling Blaze, so at the moment you jump, you can return him his
                 missiles.
    
    Ice Beam: This is my favorite. When the core comes out of his back, wait until
              all the light coming out vanishes, jump on his back and beat the shit
              out of him.
    
     These are the attacks. The best way to hurt him is to wait until he's about to
    use his Ice Beam, then use Air Raid and/or if you have it, Inferno.
    
    -------------------------
    
     Once you've killed it, it's time to go finish another Secret Mission. Simply
    return to the airplane room to enter the Secret Mission.

     There are a grand total of 4 Shadows in this Secret Mission. There are 2 on
    top of the airplane in this room. Remember the previous strategy? Use Ifrit's
    Kick13 speed combo and Ebony & Ivory to kill both. They're a bit harder, simply
    because the room is dark and it's pretty hard to spot them. Now go to the main
    hall (where you started the game) and go to the place where you got the first
    Blue Orb Fragment. Another Shadow is there. Now go in the next room (where you
    entered from the outer area) to find the last Shadow.
    
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     Back at the room where you killed Nightmare, go out to the bridge and go to
    the other side. Now examine the symbol of Hermes at the back and use the Staff
    of Hermes to have two paintings appear. Go in the red one (right one) and grab
    the 'Blue Orb Fragment' from the corner and on top of the bed for an
    'Untouchable'.
    
     Exit the painting and enter the left one to end the mission. OMFG... I went to
    Taco Bell and left the PS2 on. I did 4:10:40, got 2,627 Red Orbs and got a B-

     Many people this Secret Mission is one of the hardest. Just kill the Sin
    Scythe the way I told you to the first time we met him and afterwards, jump on
    top of the arch right above the door. You might remember doing this, eh? From
    here, simply jump and use Air Raid. Now fly towards the Blue Orb Fragment what
    is almost in middle of the bridge.
    
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     Return inside the painting and go to the top of the spiral staircase and enter
    the door. Approach the end of the  room to have a painting appear just like
    before. Enter it and try going in the door to be greeted with a scene with a
    new type of enemy, the Frosts, and two of them. They're like an evolved form of
    the Blades, but with Ice elemental... and you know what is weak against ice,
    right? That's right, Ifrit is a great choice against them, specially if you
    have Inferno, with two of them and they're gone. Now enter the door.
    
     In this hall, follow it to the end, ignoring the forking path to the right and
    killing the Marionettes and Fetishes if you want. There's a skeleton dragon in
    this room, and it'll be throwing fireballs towards you. What you need to do is
    to slash the fireballs right back at it, 3 times total to destroy it. A mirror
    appeared near the entrance of the room, so use the crank right next to it to
    trigger a scene.
    
     Now jump on to the second floor on the right side, go outside and a 'Blue Orb
    Fragment' will drop. Get it and start jumping on the blue platforms that only
    appear when lightning strikes and cross to the other side, then grab the
    'Quicksilver'.
    
     Remember the forking path you ignored previously? Go there and use the
    Quicksilver at the door to open it to trigger a scene with Nelo Angelo.
    
    ---------------------------
    Boss #9 - Nelo Angelo (3rd)
    ---------------------------
    
     Once again, Nelo Angelo. He has the same attacks as before, plus some more
    that look a lot like Dante's moves when he has Ifrit equipped. To me, he's
    easier than before. Also, a good strategy I used (and discovered while writing
    this), is to use Alastor, and while in Devil Form, attack him with the sword
    non stop, even if he blocks. This way, when you make him take his "shield" off,
    you'll keep hitting him, and staggering him, so do it Fast and Furious. Also,
    if your DT empties, use your Handguns to refill them, or Taunt Nelo using R2.
    He also has some new attacks, in which he'll start floating on top of the door
    you just used and start throwing crystal swords at you.

    level is a little platform sticking out. Hit the rune clock, then swim there
    and wait until the water drains. If done well, a 'Blue Orb Fragment' will drop
    on you.
    
     Hit the rune clock again and go to the top of the tower to find the
    'Philosopher's Egg'. Now start descending the stairs and enter the red door
    when you get to it. Enter the door on the top right of the area and get a 'Blue
    Orb Fragment' at the end of the hall. Now go to the floor and examine the blue
    light, use the Philosopher's Egg to have Nightmare appear again and play with
    you.
    
    --------------------------
    Boss #10 - Nightmare (2nd)
    --------------------------
    
     Nightmare, hardest boss in all the game. He's simply so powerful, that it's
    worth writing all attacks and everything about him.
    
     Nightmare has two forms, liquid and solid. When he's liquid, hit any of the
    rune clocks until it fills to have Nightmare gets solid. He also, just like the
    Shadows, has a core, which can appear either in his ass, or over his back. He
    has 2 attacks when it comes out of his ass and 1 attack when it comes over his
    back. He has a new attack, and it's when the core appears on the back, he
    throws at you what looks like a boomerang.
    
    Maggots: An attack that he has when in liquid form. He'll send "maggots"
             towards you, sticking to you and exploding, turning the place into a
             small iceberg. Simply run to shake them off
    
    Swallow: Another attack when he's in his liquid form. A "mouth" similar to the
             ones the Shadows have will try and engulf you from the bottom, taking
             to another "dimension". Simply jump to avoid it. Also, in this first
             battle with Nightmare, you'll have to fight Phantom in this other
             dimension. At the second fight, you'll have to kill Griffon and at the
             third, you'll have to fight Nelo.
    
    Machine Gun: When Nightmare turns to his solid form, the first thing he'll do
                 is use this attack. Simply run to avoid the attack.
    
    Claw: This is one attack that he uses when the core comes right out of behind.
          He'll try to impale you three times, so be really careful. The claw comes
          out of his left side.
    
    Pin Missile: Another attack from behind. I highly recommend having Ifrit's
                 Rolling Blaze, so at the moment you jump, you can return him his
                 missiles.
    
    Ice Beam: This is my favorite. When the core comes out of his back, wait until
              all the light coming out vanishes, jump on his back and beat the shit
              out of him.
    
    Boomerang: When the core comes out of his back, find a safe spot or start Air
               Raiding and attacking him so you can evade it's attack.
    
     These are the attacks. The best way to hurt him is to wait until he's about to
    use his Ice Beam, then use Air Raid and/or if you have it, Inferno. Also, if
    you're using Sparda, which is good, attack the core. Sparda's power is equal to
    the power Alastor has during DT.
    
    -------------------------
    
     After defeating Nightmare, check the blue flame to receive the "Elixir" and
    finish the mission.

     Now go to the top and before dropping, wall jump on top of the right

    This Secret Mission looks more like a normal mission. Follow the path and at

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

    the previous room. Return to the previous room and enter the membrane shown to
    you in the scene.
    
     At the fork you get to, go left, kill the Nobody. Proceed, kill another Nobody
    and at the forking path to the right, keep going north to find another Nobody.
    Kill in and enter the membrane.
    
     You'll be in another room that looks like the inside of a volcano. Kill both
    Plasmas that are here and follow the path until you reach a rune clock. Go up
    the ledges, then the platforms. Destroy the Red Orb Stone, hit the rune clock
    and keep going up until you get to a membrane, which you should enter.
    
     You'll be at the room with the heart, so jump to the other side, hit the rune
    clock to have the door to Mundus open. Simply drop, open the door to finish the

    Boss #12 - Mundus (1st)
    -----------------------
    
     Finally, time to battle Mundus. His attacks deal a lot of damage, so be really
    careful. You'll be flying during the whole battle, so the controls change a
    little bit. Instead of jumping, you can now speed up while keeping pressed the
    jump button. You shoot fireballs with the shooting button and do a Vortex with
    the sword button.
    
     When Mundus has 4 balls floating around him, shoot them down so you can
    actually damage him. He also has an attack that looks like Nightmare's machine
    Gun, only that he has 6 circles instead of 2. There's another attack in which
    he throws red spears at you, from his hands and from the back. Just circle the
    screen to avoid them all. He also has an attack that looks like Griffon's
    Lightning Pillars, as well as some meteorites (these are not from Griffon).
    When your DT fills, you can invoke a dragon to do massive damage on Mundus.
    Wait a moment, almost forgot another attack. When you see that white glyphs are
    appearing around Mundus, he'll use a beam that is either vertical or
    horizontal.
    
     I suggest filling all your Devil Symbols and then invoke the dragon. Keep this
    and you'll win the battle.
    
    ----------------------
    
    -----------------------
    Boss #13 - Mundus (2nd)
    -----------------------
    
     Mundus gets hard as hell. You'll see several orbs floating around the
    battlefield. The small ones throw you little bullets, while the big ones just
    stay there. You can destroy the large orbs to have it refill your DT by 4
    symbols. He will pull towards himself the large orbs that were left there,
    sending you a powerful beam for each large orb he absorbed. You can repel these
    by hitting them with your sword. He also has a meteor attack like Phantom's,
    but you know how to evade that one, right?
    
     Also, when a fire dragon appears, try killing it for health. Use all the items
    you need, specially Devil Stars. Use DT as soon as you can to deal massive
    damage on Mundus.

    |                              |  side for an 'Untouchable'. When you reach the

                                      kill the enemies that appear and enter the

    Boss #14 - Mundus (3rd)

     This boss is so easy. Simply kill him with the Grenadegun until someone

    to have the DT fill to the fullest. Now use the DT and shoot to end the battle.
    
    ----------------------
    
     Watch the scene afterwards, then you'll need to exit the island using the
    plane in the previous room. Shoot the spires that block the way.

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

    This Secret Mission is exactly the same as the previous one, only that you
    can't use any weapons. What to do...? What to do...? Use your DT and start

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

                -- "Find the hidden bangle that resides in the secret corridor". --
    
    
    This Secret Mission looks more like a normal mission. Follow the path and at
    the fork you come across, go either way and get the complete 'Blue Orb' that's
    waiting for you there. Kill the Nobody and follow the northern path, then kill
    another Nobody and keep following the northern path.
    
     When the path forks to the left, ignore it and keep going north, kill the
    Nobody and enter the membrane. You'll now be in what looks like the inside of a
    volcano. Go to the left to find a huge Red Orb Stone. Break it and return to
    the left side of the entrance to find some ledges. Climb on them, then kill the
    dinosaur blowing fire (hit it) to have some Frosts appear on the lower level.
    Once you kill them, return to the platform where you destroyed the dinosaur and
    follow the left path, timing your jumps on the eyeball platforms. At the top,
    you'll see something shining. Examine it to get the 'Bangle of Time'.

     ..:: Marionette ::..
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     They are low-class evil spirits that borrow the bodies of puppets in order to
    exist in a physical state.
    
     Sometimes they use guns to attack. They have a habit of twirling their wrists
    before firing, which make spinning sounds.
    
     The daggers they throw travel in a straight line. If you can see the enemy
    preparing to attack, you should be able to avoid being hit.
    
     They will also throw crescent-shaped blades that curve round obstacles to
    attack you. Keep a sharp eye and watch their movements.
    
     If they catch you, they will not let go easily and will try to slash and gash
    at you neck. Wiggle the Left Analog Stick to shake them off.
    
     They will make a screeching evil war cry to immobilize those near them. If you
    become immobilized, quickly move the Left Analog Stick back and forth to free
    yourself.
    
     Since they exist as physical entities, they can be destroyed by physical
    means. Use guns, swords and other ways to scatter them to oblivion!
    
    
     ..:: Sin Scissors ::..
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     They are one of the low-class evil spirits that can only exist by taking the
    shape of physical objects. These evil spirits have chosen deadly scissors as
    their shape.
    
     These evil spirits are dependent on the masks they wear. They cannot exist
    without them.
    
     Their capes are nothing then illusions created by the evil spirits. All
    physical attacks against them are useless and easily blocked.
    
     When they descend with their scissors, there's a short moment of time when
    they are off guard. If you attack at the right moment, you'll be able to damage
    them critically.
    
     They deflect attacks using their scissors. If you knock the scissors out of
    their hands, they will become defenseless. This is your chance to blast your
    gun at them.
    
     If you fire at close range when their masks are defenseless, you can eliminate
    them with one shot.
    
     Although it is difficult to evade the attack they execute after they surround
    you, don't give up. There is still a chance to counter attack.
    
    
     ..:: Sin Scythe ::..
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     These evil spirits have scythes instead of scissors
    
     Like the Sin Scissors they are dependent on their masks. They cannot exist
    without them.
    
     Their capes are nothing then illusions created by the evil spirits. All
    physical attacks against them are useless and easily blocked.
    
     The large spinning scythe attack is an expression of the Sin's hatred and
    anger.
    
     You have to be quick on your feet to evade the returning scythe of the
    boomerang scythe attacks.
    
     The umbrella-like shape that appears is a nucleus that gathers evil spirits
    and converts them into its own energy. When this occurs, they become even more
    fierce.
    
     They'll stab their prey with their scythes and immobilize them to steal their
    souls. Quickly move the Left Analog Stick back and forth to free yourself from
    death.
    
     The attack executed after surrounding you is deadly. Watch them closely; if
    they start circling, do your best to avoid being hit.
    
     If you succeed in deflecting the scythes, you'll be able to create an opening
    for attack.
    
     The scythes that fly at you can be deflected with your guns if you engage your
    Devil Trigger.
    
     Guns are very effective against these evil sprits, since they've only fought
    with ancient knights who used swords. Use your guns to blast them out of the
    air.
    
     If the gun is shot from a close range when their masks are defenseless, you'll
    be able to eliminate them with one shot.
    
    
     ..:: Death Scissors ::..
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     The part that looks like a cow's skull is their main body. Their evil is much
    stronger and tougher when compared to the Sin's.
    
     They use many staffs made from bones of animals and humans to create an evil
    barrier.
    
     Their screw attacks are accurate and very destructive. Dodge to escape these
    attacks.
    
     It's unwise to fight these evil spirits from the surface. Use the devil
    trigger to take the fight into the air.
    
     The head of the main body is their weak point. But regular guns won't have
    much effect against it.
    
     The most effective way to fighting them is if you find a way to attack their
    horns, which are their weak points.
    
     Their capes are nothing then illusions created by the evil spirits. All
    physical attacks against them are useless and easily blocked.
    
     They are more powerful then the "Sins". They will most likely counter Dante's
    attack by deflecting it.
    
     Occasionally they concentrate the evil in their heads, which turn red. When
    this occurs, all of your attacks become ineffective. If you are caught in this
    situation, do your best to dodge their attacks.
    
    
     ..:: Death Scythe ::..
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     These are the strongest, the highest ranking, and the most evil of all the
    "Sins".
    
     Their deadly physical attacks from above must be avoided. If you are hit,
    critical damage will be inevitable.
    
     The tornadoes that propel their pray into the are sprits in the atmosphere
    that were forced to comply with their evil ways. How you utilize them to you
    advantage will test your quality as a Devil Hunter.
    
     If you use the power of the tornado to your advantage, you should be able to
    jump anywhere you want to go.
    
     When the Death Scythes become desperate during a prolonged battle, they will
    throw their four blades. Attack and destroy them as quickly as you possibly
    can. Don't give them any time to get a hold of the scythes.
    
     Their capes are nothing then illusions created by the evil spirits. All
    physical attacks are useless. Meaningless attacks will only make them counter
    attack! Jump higher then the enemy and attack with accuracy from above.
    
     When you strike the actual scythe itself, the enemy will flinch. Since it is
    rarely off guard, attack it with all you've got!
    
    
     ..:: Shadow ::..
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     It has evil spells covering its body, thus allowing it to deflect all sword
    attacks. It's am evil sprit that takes form from its own shadows. But they can
    also take on other forms by changing the spells on its body.
    
     In its shadow form, all sword attacks are deflected. This is because it
    remembers the weapons from its fights with the ancient knights. However,
    firearms seem to be an exception.
    
     It releases magical powers instantaneously in order to deflect certain
    attacks. At the same time, the magical powers are shot toward the enemy. It is
    very difficult to avoid being hit with this attack.
    
     When you damage its surface to a certain point, it will come to a point when
    it can't deflect the attacks anymore, showing its true form. This is when it is
    most vulnerable.
    
     The true form is the core of its evil powers. Firearms will not work against
    this core.
    
     Its spinning attack is very accurate. Watch out for it when it jumps high into
    the air.
    
     The shadow transforms into a narrow spear like weapon, thrusting it towards
    its enemy. The spear is hard enough for the player to even stand on top it. If
    you succeed in standing on top of it, there is a brief moment when the shadow
    cannot move. This is when you can blast all the lead you have!
    
     The Shadow will go into a state of shock if you succeed in standing on top of
    its spear. When this happens the spells also lose their barrier effectiveness
    and allows the bullets to go right in. In another words, if you are able to
    blast enough bullets during this state of shock, you can defeat the enemy
    without trying to attack it's core directly.
    
    
     ..:: Beelzebub ::..
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     This evil sprit inhabits the body of a fly. Its hideousness is not too
    difficult from its appearance and movements.
    
     The blue Beelzebubs vomits what appear to be maggots, but they are really a
    form of evil power that prevents you from firing when in contact with it. In
    this case, you should switch your weapon to a sword.
    
     The large green Beelzebubs serve as an evil power supply for the blue airborne
    Beelzebubs. They seem to be stronger, since they have larger physical mass.
    
     The green Beelzebubs feed on the dead and absorb their evil powers, and become
    even stronger. After feeding they become agile and more dangerous.
    
     Never turn your back to the Beelzebub. It will grab you with its frontal limbs
    and try to break your back.
    
     It is most vulnerable after being hit, when it is on its back. Blast it with
    an aerial attack, but watch out for the poison it spits out.
    
    
     ..:: Kyklops ::..
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     Although they appear similar to the Phantom, they are still one of the low-
    class evil spirits. However, since they take on earth and rocks as host
    elements, they have substantial durability. Contrary to their appearance, they
    have superb leaping abilities.
    
     They can shoot rocks from their mouths, which they form by eating dirt. Try to
    avoid standing in front of them whenever possible.
    
     Although their armor is made from rocks, it doesn't compare to the armor of
    the Phantom. Use the Devil Trigger to bash the monster along with their armors.
    
    
     ..:: Blade ::..
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     They are soldiers created by the Dark Emperor to take control of the surface.
    They use a kind of reptile as a host body, thus having much lizard-like
    characteristics.
    
     The round shield on their forearm is reinforced with evil powers and deflects
    most attacks. Their defense is good against attacks that come from above, but
    not so for the attacks that come from below.
    
     The mask they wear protects them well against bullets. You can either destroy
    the mask quickly or go around the enemy to attack it from other angles.
    
     They can pressurize their blood, concentrate it to their claws, and shoot them
    out like missiles. When you see them take the stance to fire, do your best to
    dodge them.
    
     When they notice that their pray is weakening, they will with out mercy, come
    to finish you. Remember to always be on guard.
    
     Relying on their superb agility, they are capable of moving freely underwater,
    as if they were aquatic organisms.
    
     They have tremendous jumping ability and their lower body strength is present
    in their underwater ability. Their spinning attack is a deadly one.
    
     Possessors of superior agility, the Blades can resume their positions even
    when they're struck up into the air. Trying to defeat them with monotonous
    attacks will be a difficult task.
    
     Even Blades equipped with masks, claws, and agility will not stand a chance
    when they are put off balance. Attack from behind and take them down face
    first. Then attack from the air to finish them for good.
    
     Their weak points lie beneath the armor they wear, which protects them from
    most attacks. However, not all their vulnerable parts are covered. It is safe
    to say that by attacked exposed areas, you can inflict a lot of damage.
    
    
     ..:: Sargasso ::..
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     They hide between the edges of the sea and the Underworld, waiting to feast on
    stray wanderers. The spirits the victims are destined to wander the endless sea
    of the Underworld.
    
     They will move quickly and feast on any life form that they sense nearby. They
    will show their true from only when they attack.
    
    
     ..:: Nobody ::..
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     Their level of intelligence is low. Hence, their kind wasn't given a name. But
    their skill to survive is a force to be reckoned with. After all, they have
    survived this extreme world of survival of the fittest.
    
     The strange dance that they do somehow skews the dimension and takes away your
    magical powers (Devil Gauges). There is no real way to prevent this. When you
    encounter these evil spirits, you must not rely on your magical powers.
    
     When you destroy the mysterious mask they wear, they will increase their body
    size along with their strengths. You as a Devil Hunter will have to decide
    which size of Nobodies you should eliminate first.
    
     Their ultra-high metabolism causes them to drop decomposed products of their
    bodies that appear like eyeballs. These eyeballs will explode spurting the
    toxins that it encases.
    
     Sometimes they will grab the eyeball and throw it towards the player. Keeping
    your distance away from them doesn't mean you're safe.
    
     Be careful of their giant arm that grows from their back. If you are not
    careful, they'll grab you with the giant arm and hurt you badly.
    
     Their jump attack is so fierce, if you're hit, you'll fly back quite a
    distance. Especially be careful when they charge and dodge your attack. Do your
    best to avoid being hit with this jump kick.
    
     When they die, they explode into pieces. Since the Nobody's body is a living
    toxin, stay away from them even when they dying. If you don't keep your
    distance, their toxic flesh will hit and damage you.
    
    
     ..:: Fetish ::..
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     Although they appear similar to the Marionettes, they have much greater evil
    powers. They are not the works of a man, but they appear to have been created
    by an evil entity.
    
     The strange weapons engulfed in flames are projected like yo-yos. Even if you
    dodge the first pass, watch out for the second pass.
    
     Using their speed, they will grab the player's head with their bird like
    beaks. Wiggle the Left Stick on the controller to shake them off.
    
     They will make an evil war cry to immobilize those near them. When a pray is
    immobilized by their attack, the others will relentlessly attack the pray
    without mercy.
    
     The flames that shoot out from their mouths difficult to avoid. Since they are
    smarter then the Marionettes, monotonous attacks will only make them retaliate
    with their flames.
    
    
     ..:: Frost ::..
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     They are soldiers created by the Dark Emperor to take control of the surface.
    Enveloped in cold air they are the elites of their kind. Their quickness is a
    definite advantage in cornering their pray.
    
     The cold honed claws are none other then an ice blade. The air around the
    blades is beyond absolute zero temperature and the victims who are slashed will
    die without feeling any pain.
    
     The claws will become icicles that shoot out as deadly projectiles. To dodge
    after they've been fired is almost impossible. Anticipate their movements to
    avoid being shot.
    
     It's unwise to think you're safe just because you've managed to sneak behind
    the enemy. Remember that their claws don't always fire forward.
    
     They will release their intense coldness using the ground to channel the
    coldness. Listen carefully for the freezing sound of the ground and dodge to
    the sides.
    
     They will freeze the moisture in the atmosphere with their radiating coldness
    and transform it into many sharp ice spears. You should be able to sense this
    attack. Otherwise, you'll fall victim to their ice spears.
    
     They can disperse their body at molecular levels that allow them to travel
    through air. However, They can only travel in straight directions. Anticipating
    where they will appear may help you in winning the battle.
    
     If enough damage is inflicted, their body parts will shatter. Keep on damaging
    and stop them from regenerating their lost parts.
    
     They will try to regenerate their shattered body parts by freezing atmosphere.
    Destroy the ice formations as quickly as possible.
    
     Although impervious even to volcanic fire, the frosts are weak to higher forms
    of incendiary. Use the hellfire of Ifrit to counter them.
    
    
     ..:: Plasma ::..
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     They are electrical evil spirits transformed into the shape of bats.
    
     When they are in the form of bats, they fire blades of electricity. Be ready
    when you see them start to charge up light.
    
     They have the ability to copy and transform into the shapes of their
    opponents. Not only do they copy their shapes but they also have the ability to
    imitate their behaviors as well.
    
     The charged electricity that fires from their eyes is dangerous. The
    electricity travels horizontally so if you sense danger, jump upwards to avoid
    being hit.
    
     The Plasma will separate without warning. How they separate is unknown. Even
    after separation, they have identical abilities and fully recovered energy. The
    only way to stop them from multiplying is to eliminate all of them almost
    simultaneously.
    
     Plasma is an embodiment of evil electricity. Thus, the use of Nightmare-beta
    against it is useless. It's ability to manipulate ambient energy will only bend
    the light, not damaging it at all.
    
     Alastor is the form of "Spirit of Lightening". It only obeys commands of the
    chosen one. Hence, the powers of the Alastor do not work effectively against
    the Plasma.
