Boss FAQ:

***The prologue to this game is a tutorial, so I won't give a walkthrough of
the prologue boss    since he is uber easy. There is no reason to fail this
mission with Thanatos on your side.

Boss 1: Lognagaiser

You will instantly be thrown into this battle. Use the lock-on feature to get
the red bolts flying, and wait for him to make an attack. Immediately send out
the Guilt Legion. THey have high strength so they will start bringing down his
life. When he has lost apporximately 1/5 of hsi life he will fall to his knees.
Once this has happened run to the front of him where his head is. Send the
Guilt to attack and wait for them to do their slice and dice combo. When they
are doing this use your own normal sword combo. This will depleat a lot of his
life. Repeat this process until about 2/3 of his life are gone.

He will then either summon some more monsters, or go on a charging spree. If he
charges, he will charge several times before he stops for a breather. When he
does, this is your chance to send the guilt after him, his life will go down
slow since hes armoured, but when he falls keep hacking away with Guilt and
your sword, he will die in no time.

Note: This boss battle can be done entirely without legions if so desired. If
you perform Sieg's aerial spin slash, you will cause serious damage, since his
head is his weak spot.

Reward: Malice Legion


Boss 2: Verge Zagan

As soon as the battle begins he will summon a bunch of dog monsters to try to
weaken you. Don't let this discourage you as they are a good source of Soul.
Keep plunking away at them, while at the same keeping the camera focused on the
boss. If you constantly swinging you will be sure to hit the monster whether
you can see them or not. Now, watch the monster, and watch for him to rear up,
because when he does hes about to launch a counter-offensive. If he lowers one
paw, he will make a quake that will send you flying taking off a lot of life.
Make sure your ready to jump when this happens. Another move he has is his
single or double ground crack move. The only way to dodge this is to stay in
the middle of the two or jump out of the way before the green crack gets to
you. The dogs will keep respawning, but this is good because you will
eventually have your soul at maximum, and ready to take on the beast. Keep in
mind that during the first phase of battle, the boss remains in one place
launching his attacks. Use this to your advantage be moving around him. If you
constantly move around him he will miss with most of his attacks. The dogs will
eventually stop spawning, and this is your chance to strike.

Run up and use the lock-on. Then as soon as he has finished an attack,
immediately summon Guilt to run up and cause a bit of damage. When he rears up
to do another quake or crack attack, unsummon the legion and dodge. As soon as
you recover from the dodge, summon again. Eventually he will fall to his knees
exposing he head, which is his weak spot. Summond the leagion and rapidly press
trinagle while trying to pull off a few combos here and there. He will lose a
lot of life during this period, so pummel away as much as possible until he
recover. If you repeat this process until about 3/4 of his life are gone you
will enter the second phase of battle.

In the second phase of battle, the boss can move and will charge you or jump on
you, both can be avoided, but the latter is the easiest to do so. When he
charges you run to the side, he will slowly follow but if you jump out at the
last second he will hit a wall stunning him, making him vulnerable, Make sure
you are in front when you attack since attacking anywhere but his head will
cause no damage. Summon Guilt to pummel away at his head while you attack as
well. Triangle tapping really helps in this game. He will eventually recover,
so repeat the process and he will die.

Reward: Blasphemy Legion


Boss 3: Zagan (x6)

There are 3 phases to this battle, each with increasing difficulty.

Phase 1: Zagan

This time around there is only one Zagan. All he will do mainly is charge and
hit walls. With this you should know to lock on and use Guilt to attack his
head as well as maintaining short sword combos here and there. The first one
will fall with ease.

Phase 2: Zagan (x2)

Here the are 2 Zagan bosses. Both will charge you instantly, and all you have
to do is dodge. When one is knocked out repeat the head smashing process with
lock-on in order to get Guilt to attack. Watch for the second Zagan, and if he
charges withdraw the Guilt and run. Do the same also if the boss you are
attacking is recovering from his down time. Once one is out of the way, (you
may have to use a few life recoveries), the second should fall the same as the
Get ready for a major battle one that may take more than one time to complete.

Phase 3: Zagan (x3) + many dogs monsters.

This is the toughest battle yet. All 3 monsters will charge you here and there
and you should try to avoid them right now. Attack some of the dogs in order to
get a lot of soul, you will need it. The dogs will respawn but not infinitely.
After you've taken out a couple of waves of dogs, its time to tackle the first
boss. Make sure the other bosses arent going to charge and hack away at one of
the bosses. You may not do it so easily since there are dogs now running
around. Let the Guilt attack his head while you watch for the other bosses and
defeat more dogs. (Tapping triangle repeatedly will make the legion attack a
lot faster and a lot more.)

With one out of the way, you will need to attack some more dogs to get more
soul as your Legions probably lost some during the attack on the first boss. By
now, the dogs should stop respawning or at least doing very little respawning.
Now you may get charged by both of the other bosses which is okay. Let them, if
you cant dodge, use an item recovery, and let loose the Guilt on one of the
heads. If both of them charge and are knocked out together, have the guilt
attack one while you attack the other. You will weaken both this way. Now
theres a trick to finishing the rest. Let one of them charge you from far away.
When you dodge quickly run to the other side of the arena and he will lose
sight of you and walk around in circles. Taking on the other should be a sinch
with no interuptions. Repeat the head pounding process, and then do so again on
the other boss.

Note: You may need to make use of the return command on the menu for this
level. You may figure that you need to do some leveling up before you go on to
fight the bosses, so use the return to use the experience you've gained, and
restart the level. Do this as many times as you need to, its all a matter of

Reward: Arrogance Legion


Boss 4: Maponos

This boss is easy if you know where to stand and where to attack .
This boss has only two attacks but both are very harmful. The first is red
lasers that attack from all sides. Although, they attack in a set pattern, so
if you watch them for a second, you will find spaces where you can stand
without getting hurt. You can destory these lasers, but its best not to do so,
since they will respawn. Just focus on getting through the first part of the
battle. Go up to the giant plant in the middle, (don't worry it doesn't
attack), and use lock on. Then slash the bottom of the plant until its bottom
rises up. Now you have to act fast here. Summon Guilt and press triangle
rapidly while running away to the left side. When they are attacking, the
bottom that raised will start to wobble. When it does, call back the Guilt and
get ready to jump because when it slams back down, it creates a shockwave that
hurts a lot.

Now for his second attack. Make sure you can see the arena when the boss makes
the shockwave, because red circles will appear, and thats where you don't want
to be. Green thorny tentacles will pop up for a breif period swinging around.
If you manage to get caught in them, you will have a lot of health drained.
Make sure you use a Life Recovery, in order to heal. You should be using Life
recoveries as much as you think you need them, since you should have a houghty
supply from the previous levels, and the one you just passed through.
Repeat this process until Maponos loses a hell of a lot of life. Then get ready
for Phase 2 of this battle.
He will now spawn lasers to make the total six. You should find a spot where
you won't get hit in order to plan the next attack. When the lasers are moving
make a run for a spot near the side where you won't get hit. Now attack the
lasers until they are toast, on top of this you should get a large amount of
soul to heal any legions that have been hurt. Once the lasers are out of the
way, you should have a clear shot at his bottom now. Attack it with your sword
until it opens. Then send the Guilt to attack it, you won't kill it yet, but
you will take out a considerable amount of life. When its about to close, call
back the Guilt and get ready to jump. Once you jump, hold R1, you may need to
to dodge some vines since they appear in random spots now. Once they go away,
repeat the process until it is dead. This boss battle takes a little longer
than the others, but its definately not harder.

Reward: Flawed Legion


Boss 5: Danu (x3) + many dog enemies.

**You should have Guilt and Malice for this boss battle.
When you encounter 3 invisible enemies you know the battle has begun. You can't
hurt the invisible enmies with your weapon, only the Legion can do that. Use
the lock-on on one of the Danu's, this makes him more visible, and easier to
attack. You should also attack some of the dogs first in order to get some
soul, and maybe some of the shooters up top with Malice, but they won't be as
dangerous as the dogs. When you are ready, take action against the Danu's. Some
of the enemies may respawn, but don't worry, you should Focus on the Danus
since they aren't all that hard. Use Guilt to attack, and press triangle to
make them attack the locked on Danu. When you see that the Danu is about to
attack, call back the legion, and then release them again after the Danu has
finished attacking. You should be able to tell what the Danu is going to do
because the red bolts that the lock-on feature makes, outlines his body, making
it posssible to see his movements.

Once  one of them is down, attack some more dogs for more souls, and by now
they should stop respawning.  Lock-on to another Danu and repeat the same
process. This should be simple since there aren't many other enemies around
except for the other Danu, who really doesn't interfere that much. Once the
second is dead, repeat the process for the thrid. This is a much simpler boss
battle than the others. When you are finished, run to the end of the level to
claim your prize.

Reward: Hatred Legion


Boss 6: Volvor + infinitely respawning enemies

This battle is a little dangerous to fight without Malice, so stick with
Malice, and take out the enemies that he spawns with your own sword. There will
be up to four enemies at once, but never more. This should be more than do-able
for you at this stage of the game, the thing is though, that they will
constantly respawn, so you only want to kill them in between Volvors attacks,
which are few and far between (but not harmless).

First off, Volvor will raise up into the air, when he does this you know hes
gonnna ram the cliff, which is your time to strike. Use Lock-on and get Mailce
to attack him from the front to weaken his bone armour. You'll notice that it
has no effect at first, but wait, because soon the armour will start to brown
and eventually break off. THis takes a while so sit tight and keep dodging the
shockwaves and kill enemies to get soul (thats what those enemies are there
for, to get soul, so make use of them when you have the time.)

Eventually the front plate will fall off and he will expose three yellow orbs
in his head. Don't jump the gun because when he rams the cliff now, he willl
shoot homing lasers from them, so have the arrow crest ready and when hes done
firing, summon Malice to attack his yellow spots. If you want, and you think
you can spare the soul, use sniper mode for stronger hits and perfectly aimed
at his yellow eyes. This will kill him faster, but you may be attacked by the
enemies that he summons, so watch out.

This definately is not a hard boss battle if you know whats coming, and out of
all the bosses this one is the most predictable. Keep at this strategy since
there isn't anything else the boss is capable of. Except to keep spawning
enemies. Another boss down. Congratulations, your half way through the game

Reward: Power Up item.


Boss 7: Gil Balor

This boss is incredibly tough if you don't know what you're doing. He has many
different attacks and performs them constantly. The most annoying is his homing
laser and miniature insects.

First off you should definately have Malice and your best attacker (either
Guilt, Claw or Hatred). Now he will start the battle off by shooting his homing
laser. There is no point in sitting around, the lasers will home in on you, so
use R1 to dodge them. Its not always possible to dodge them though. He will
constantly spawn mini critters that can stun you, and do nothing but annoy you.
Use your attack legion to kill them and get some soul. Now run up and slash his
legs, or use Malice's Sniper attack to take one of his legs out. Eventually he
will fall on one of them, and you now have to take out the other front leg. Use
your attack Legion to help. Once both his front legs are out, use Mailce Sniper
to shoot the glowing orb on his back, or use Claw to jump on top and attack
that way. EIther way, the tactics don't change in this battle, its just that he
attacks so much it makes it difficult to attack or get a shot off, since you'll
be so busy dodging. Good luck, it took me a good 3 or 4 tries to beat this boss
without leveling up.

Reward: Spritual Gem


Boss 8: Gil Maponos

This boss is so easy its laughable. You may encounter a few laser hits here and
there, but standing in front of the plant in between the two spike balls should
keep you relatively safe. Kill the few baddies that are lying around and whip
out your guns and shoot the bottom portion of the plant. This boss is exactly
like Maponos only ten time easier. Since you are playing as Arcia, you should
have energy bullets. When his bottom flies up, let loose with an energy bullet,
which will take away almost half of his life bar. Repeat this process and the
beast will go down. This boss has the same difficulty as the very first boss
during the prologue, its just there to move the game along.

Reward: Map Selector


Boss 9: Gil Volvor

See Volvor strategy. Use Malice to take away the front armour and let loose
with them to hit the yellow orbs while taking out the baddies at the same time.
Although, if you haven't leveled up at all (since you now have the Map
Selector), you should do so. The enemies in this level are really tough and can
block some attacks. I suggest leveling up which ever is your strongest attack
to level 6 or 7, and Malice about the same. This is no push over level. You'll
find actually gettting to the boss is a lot more difficult than actually
fighting the boss himself. Be prepared, the rest of the game is just as tough
or even tougher.

Reward: Spiritual Gem


Boss 10: Victor Delacroix

This battle can be very tough if you don't have strong legions to hold
Delacroix off. So I suggest leveling up your best organic attack legion to at
least level 6 attack, if not level 7, because every bit helps, not to mention
have at least 4 legions.

The first phase of this battle is kind of complicated because you don't know
when to strike. Well, before we get into that there are some things you need to
know. You should lock-on as soon as the battle starts, and then get out of the
centre of the arena. Delacroix will summon giants swords and zombies to try and
attack you. The Zombies stun you and immobilize you, while the giant blades
will cause extreme damage to you. Always avoid these if necessary. When the red
circle goes away, Delacroix will do a bunch of crazy spins towards you in order
to attack. If you have the move, use the attack from Flawed Legion that lets
you attack an enemy with a double jump. Make sure your on top of him then
execute the second jump and he should be stunned. At first you'll want to dodge
his attacks with jumps, etc. until it looks like hes just following you around.
Here is your window to attack. Send either Hatred, Guilt, or Claw to attack him
while you go in for the kill. THe legions will do small amounts of damage and
it is possible to kill him this way, but it will take immense amounts of time,
so i suggest while Delacroix TRIES to dodge the Legion, you go in for some
slashing of your own. Your attack will do ten times more damage than any legion
will. Occasionally Delacroix will perform a burst attack that does massive
damage. He will fly in the air and look like hes tensing up. If he's in the
centre, go to one of the side wings, and if hes on one of the side wings, go to
the centre. This will guarantee that he doesn't hit you with this attack, since
it is very lethal.

This process will repeat over and over again, and you will attack the same way
until he has about 1/2 of his last life bar left. Then he will start shooting
massive red plasma blasts from the wings of the arena. You should run not jump
to avoid these. If you jump, you will probably get hit by them. When he is
finished he usually follows up with either a burst attack or a zombie/sword
spell. Afterwards, attacking is simple. Let loose with your sword when your
legion has him distracted. You may need to do some more dodging, but you should
be able to get a few good shots off to kill him. This sounds easier than it is.
He is fast and witty, and will always have the upper hand on you and know
exactly what your next move is. The only way to beat him by dodging and waiting
for that small window of opprotunity to arise, and then use the sword/Legion

Reward: None


Boss 11: Rudo Lognagaiser

THis boss is almost like Lognagaiser only he has a gigantic sheild that is
impervious to all attacks. The sheild is also his ONLY defense, so when he
sends it off to attack that is your chance to attack. He will probably summon
many monsters to distract you, but by now you should be able to take them out
with ease in order to get a lot of soul. He also has one extra attack that can
be very devastating. He will raise his sword in the air and release a swarm of
Kamikaze Pots that explode on impact. Run, and whatever you do don't jump and
stay away from the pots. These two things are the only threat to you besides
the sheild.

When he sends out his sheild it will make a figure eight pattern. So stand kind
of close to Lognagaiser, but to his left side a little bit. He will throw his
sheild straight and miss, then you will lock-on and summon Flawed legion to
attack him. You can use Guilt or Hatred, but it will take a lot longer that
way. Flawed will attack from above hitting his head and actually causeing good
amounts of damage. Before he falls he will jump to the other side of the arena
to try and catch his sheild. Keep pressing triangle to get the CLAWS to attack
him. After he jumps to other side and has been attacked, he will fall to his
knees. Keep pressing triangle to get Flawed to attack rapidly while you pull
off regular sword combos. your sword is stronger than the legion, so you HAVE
to attack in order to cause a lot damage.

After he recovers he will repeat the sheild and jump process several times. He
will also summon new monster and make new swarms of Explosive pots. As well,
sometimes when he jumps he will swing his massive sword in a circle, don't be
near him when he does this, it hurts a lot. When he is down again, repeat the
process. He will maintain this throughout the whole battle, so its just a
matter of rinse and repeat.

Reward: Spritual Gem


Boss 12: Gil Guirath, Ogma Danu, Gil Danu

You will be treated to a very closed quarters boss battle here. Although the
monsters you fight are not that hard, just annoying because there are so many
and so little space to work with. If you have Thanatos in his juvenile or adult
form with high attack, use him, if not, use Flawed to take out all the
monsters. Lock-on to the invisible enemies one at a time and attack with Flawed
when the coast is clear. If it gets too hot for your legions to handle, call
them back and dodge some more before you get a clear shot. There is one visible
monster in the area, and thats Gil Guirath. He isn't diffucult,  he just gets
in the way a lot, and its hard to attack him when the invisible enemies are
attacking at the same time. Use Claw to take out all the invisible enemies and
Gil Guirath is dead as a sitting duck.

The main focus of this entire level and boss fights is to give Thanatos
experience. (If you've collected all nine fragments of his crest). If not, then
tough luck. Thanatos is much needed in the last boss fight, and it will be very
difficult without him.

Reward: Spritual Gem


Boss 13:

A) Victor Delacroix

This is the toughest boss battle yet. If you aren't a skilled player, i suggest
collecting all 9 of the THANATOS fragments in order to make this battle easier.
Though its not just Thanatos you want, its his Adult form. Which takes 30
million experience to get and not to mention you will need to level up his
strength as well. If you do not, Malice is your only option, and it will take
very long to beat with them. So if you can get Thanatos...

Delacroix has all the same attacks that he had when you last fought him, only
he his 3 times as strong, and has more life. Use the same tactics as you did
last time, and use Thanatos to attack him when he's not attacking you. There
isn't anything new to add except the fact that he performs his attacks twice as
much, and they do a lot more damage. If you keep at it, you will finish him in
due time. If you don't have Thanatos, summon and unsummon Malice as you see
fit, and dodge all of Delacroix's attacks and use Malice's attack order to
fight him. His life will fall very slowly, but he will die, only in about 3 - 4
times as much time.

When he pauses in the air, use an aerial spin attack to take a good chunk of
his life away. Repeat these tactics, and Delacroix will fall. Time for another
huge boss to fight.

B) Spirit Azrail

This boss is only tough if you don't pay attention to its attacking order. It
will constantly summon enemies, and they can be used to get soul, but nothing
more, so don't waste too much time, they respawn infinitely. When Azrail lowers
its head to the cliff, lock - on and send Thanatos to attack while you attack
with your sword as well. When he starts to lift off the cliff, call back
thanatos, and run away. He will either use his chest lasers, or his missles.
The missles are easily dodged if you can see them, so always have the camera
focused on the boss, while trying to fight off enemies when you get the chance.
In fact, you could do this whole boss battle without Thanatos, it just adds
that extra oomph when you need it. The next time he attacks it will be on the
cliff, so wait for him to attack before you do. Once you attack repeat the
process. THe attacks Azrial makes are so predictable and easily dodged. But if
you don't know how to dodge or how to predict his attacks, it is hard. So
follow this same process and repeat as needed and you should be fine.

C) Choas Seila

This boss is the easiest of the three, but has the highest defense, so it takes
a while to beat, but her moves are so predictable, you can dodge every single
First she will turn into a misty black demon thing, and while in this form you
cannot attack her, so don't. First she will summon lasers in the centre of the
room. Then she will fly around some more. After a bit she will reform in the
middle of the room. You should be able to see her blue skin now, and now is
your chance to pull off a few sword slashes, but don't get greedy because she
will summon some Danu's to attack. Don't worry though, if you stay on the
outside she will call them back and perform another attack. This time she
shoots multiple lasers from her hands which are hard to avoid, but do-able. Run
in a circle around her, and don't stop. If you stagger at all she will hit you.
Recover fast because a short window is about to open for you to attack her. She
will go to one side of the arena and charge you in a straight line. Double jump
over her and when you land attack her with all your might. Right now is when
she is at her weakest. You may only be able to do one sword combo, but its
worth it, because it takes off a lot of life. She will now turn back into the
black misty demon and fly around some more. Her last attack is a summon of 4
energy blasters and a Guirath. Destroy the four energy blasters and then
Guirath. While these enemies are present, Seila won't attack, so you are safe
to go about killing these guys anyway you chose. Once you destory these
enemies, the EXACT same attack pattern repeats itself. I mean exact. If you
managed to survive until now, you are doing good, and should have no problem
surviving the rest, because she performs all the exact same attacks in the
exact order i just prescribed. SOMETIMES she will perform one or two moves out
of cycle, but this will happen very rarely. If you stick to the strategem I
just described for all of her moves, you will survive, and destory her.

Reward: over 150 000 000 experience (unusable though)



You've just completed Chaos Legion.
You will be treated to a good closing cinema, and the theme song of the game.
Afterwards, you will be rewarded with all Scenes unlocked in the extras menu as
well as their corresponding Japanese dialogue. You will also be able to view
the total results now. You get this if you beat it on easy. If you beat it on
normal, you will unlock Arcia as a playable character, and if you beat it on
hard, you will unlock Super Mode where all enemies die in one attack.

I hope this guide has been very helpful, and I hope you have all the success
that I had while fighting these bosses. I also hope you enjoyed this game as
much as I did. Continue playing, and never give up if you have trouble.

Good Luck!
