    This is a quick guide to the endings of Disgaea for people looking to see all
    of them.  This guide contains no plot spoilers, only information on game
    mechanics and instructions on how to see each of the multiple endings.  There may
    be errors within--please let me know if you notice any, particularly if I've
    missed an ending somehow(!), or if there's anything else you think should be
    included here!
    
    There are eight endings total, half of which are reached by clearing the
    standard "Last Episode" of the game.  Half of the endings are controlled by ally
    murders--namely, the number of times you have killed one of your allies with
    another party member.
    
    
    
    +-------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
     Good Ending
    
        Clear the last stage with no ally murders during the game.  Congrats, you get
        great plot bits and the Cutest Picture Ever during the credits!
    
        In terms of requirements, it's probably easiest to aim to get this ending
        from the beginning of the game, leave a save just before the end, and then
        branch off and go for all four of the "standard" endings.
    
    +-------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
     Bad Ending 1
    
        Clear the last stage having passed more than 100 bills through the Black
        Congress by force.  This takes a little while!
    
        My recommendation is to repeatedly have a very weak character try to pass
        the "Give Me Money" bill, which will result both in terrible failure when
        trying to pass the bill rationally (producing the fight that you need) and
        in weak opponents in the battle to pass the bill.  This makes things go much
        more quickly.  If you actually have trouble failing to pass the bill you can
        always hand out a bunch of items to legislators who don't want them to make
        them hate you.
    
    +-------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
     Bad Ending 2
    
        Clear the last stage having defeated the Item God at the 100th level of a
        Legend item.  If the requirements for both Bad Endings are met, Bad Ending 1
        results, so you may want to do this one first!  This can also be quite a
        task.  No particular tips here, unfortunately, besides do a lot of leveling
        and fight it out!
    
    +-------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
     Normal Ending
    
        This one's the Standard Ending.  Progress through the game to the end, and
        this is probably what you'll get.  This ending happens when you clear the
        last stage, having met none of the requirements for the above three endings.
        After seeing this ending, you'll want the good one, so either be careful
        your first time through the game or get ready to zip through a second time!
    
    +-------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
     Earth Conqueror Ending
    
        Finish the last stage on the Human World map!  Not much to say about this
        one, it's pretty easy.
    
    +-------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
     Flon Ending
    
        Cute!  To get this one, you need at least 50 ally murders by the time you
        clear the last map of the third episode.  After you clear the map, you'll be
        offered an option to kill or not kill Zenisuki--choose to kill him to get the
        ending.
    
    +-------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
     Etona Ending
    
        A must-see for Etona fans!  Get 100 ally murders before clearing the last map
        of the fifth episode.  You'll be given another to kill or not to kill choice,
        and must choose the former to get the ending.
    
    +-------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
     Chuu-Boss Ending
    
        More like a glorified Game Over, this is still worth watching--it's got a
        vocal track you won't hear otherwise, and it's incredibly easy to get!
        Simply lose any battle against Chuu-Boss (you actually have to have the max.
        number of characters die rather than giving up) to get it.
    
    +-------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
     Game Over
    
        No, it's not really an ending, but if you haven't listened to the vocal track
        at the Game Over screen you should go lose a battle and listen now--it's
        pretty.
    
    +-------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
    
    Note:
        Yes, Disgaea has a "New Game +" feature--after finishing the game, you can
        restart with your characters and equipment essentially unchanged.
    
        The state governing the requirements for the endings is RESET when you
        restart like this--thus, if you get the Normal Ending your first time through
        the game, you can get the Good Ending on your second pass through if you
        don't kill any allies.  This feature obviously makes getting the different
        endings a much easier task to manage, particularly if you get to the end
        and find that you can't get an ending in your current state (which happens
        more often than not).
