          character names and appearances). Nothing else will
          be mentioned. If you do not wish to partake in having
          any of that spoiled, I strongly suggest you do not
          review over this guide until you've completed at

    Part 1.B. - Frequently Asked Questions
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
    If you have any questions regarding endings, just send me a
    message on GameFAQs and I'll do my best to answer it. I
    won't answer any questions that have been covered here or
    in this guide.
    
    -
    
    Q: Question?
    A: Answer.
    
    -
    
    Q: How do I start a new cycle?
    A: If you've gotten a bad end or the true end, the cycle
       process will start after the credits and whatever follow-
       ing scenes it may show. If you're in Post Game, go to the
       back of your base where the sludge NPC is and there's a
       Lady Samurai there. Talk to her and she'll ask you if you
       want to go back in time. Pick yes and you'll begin a new
       cycle.
    
    -
    
    Q: What is kept after starting a new cycle?
    A: Pretty much everything. Characters, levels, equipment,
       unlocked NPC's, custom maps, pirate data, etc. The only
       things I know that reset are the Extra Battle bills. You
       will need to pass those again and redo them.
    
    -
    
    Q: Do I still get the trophy for watching an ending if I do
       follow up with the new cycle?
    A: Yes. You'll get the trophy. However, the data will not be
       recorded under the Data Shop unless you go through with
       the new cycle.
    
    -
    
    Q: How do I remove a relationship established by the
       Legendary Tree?
    A: Have the character you want to break the relationship
       call up the Senate. There should be an option near the
       end to cancel out the relationship.
    
    ============================================================
    Part 2.0. Ending Requirements
    ============================================================
    
    These are the endings shown in your base's Data Shop. There
    are multiple ways to acquire some endings but not all. This
    part will cover just the bare minimum on how to reach each
    of the endings.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 2.A. - Alt Ending: Emizel
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Requirements: Game Over (lose 10 units) in battle 1-5 or
      2-4. Both endings unlock only one entry in Data Shop if
      that means anything to you. They're minutely different,
      but for the most part the same.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 2.B. - Alt Ending: Fuka
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Requirements: Game Over (lose 10 units) in battle 2-5.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 2.C. - Alt Ending: Desco
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Requirements: Game Over (lose 10 units) in battle 3-6.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 2.D. - Alt Ending: Vulcanus (?)
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Requirements: Game Over (lose 10 units) in battle 5-6.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 2.E. - Alt Ending: Axel
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Requirements: Game Over (lose 10 units) in battle 6-7.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 2.F. - Epilogue: Fenrich
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Requirements: Set Val as the leader of the Legendary Tree in
      the Cam-Pain HQ. Set Fenrich set as his comrade. Perform
      10 team attacks over the course of the game using the two
      of them, re-visit the  Cam-Pain HQ to acknowledge each
      other as comrades. After that, beat the game normally.
    
    Note: Only one Epilogue may be viewed through playthrough.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 2.G. - Epilogue: Fuka
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Requirements: Set Val as the leader of the Legendary Tree in
      the Cam-Pain HQ. Set Fuka set as his mentor. Have Val
      stand next to Fuka and use any skills Fuka has to share
      (Target Lock is a good choice). Use this skill 10 times.
      Re-visit the Cam-Pain HQ to acknowledge Fuka as Val's
      mentor. After that, beat the game normally.
    
    Note: Only one Epilogue may be viewed through playthrough.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 2.H. - Epilogue: Desco
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Requirements: Set Val as the leader of the Legendary Tree in
      the Cam-Pain HQ. Set Desco set as his stepsibling. Place
      the Defense Fortress and Overlap it with Val so he can
      use Protect. Have Val stand adjacent to Desco and defend
      her 10 times while having someone attack Desco. If done
      right, Val will take the hit for Desco. Re-visit the
      Camp-Pain HQ to have them acknowledge each other as
      stepsiblings. Then beat the game normally.
    
    Note: Only one Epilogue may be viewed through playthrough.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 2.I. - Epilogue: Emizel
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Requirements: Set Val as the leader of the Legendary Tree in
      the Cam-Pain HQ. Set Emizel as his rival. Have them attack
      each other 10 times and countering each time. Multiple
      counters from one attack do not count as more than 1. Both
      Val and Emizel must be either empty-handed or equipped
      with fists. Then re-visit the Cam-Pain HQ and watch them
      acknowledge each  other as rivals. Then beat the game
      normally.
    
    Note: Only one Epilogue may be viewed through playthrough.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 2.J. - Epilogue: Artina
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Requirements: There are two methods to this epilogue.
    
    1) Beat the game normally without meeting the requirements
       for any of the other epilogues.
    2) If there is another requirement met, meeting Artina's
       requirement will take priority. Set Val as the leader
       of the Legendary Tree in the Cam-Pain HQ. Set Artina as
       his lover. Have Val heal Artina in battle for 10 turns.
       Re-visit the Cam-Pain HQ to acknowledge each other as
       lovers. Beat the game normally.
    
    Note: Only one Epilogue may be viewed through playthrough.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 2.K. - Epilogue: Battle Against God
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Requirements: This epilogue requires you to have beaten the
      game normally already and are on a new cycle. Val must be
      at least level 500. Have Val clear 10-6 by himself. Upon
      entering 10-7, a different battle will occur as opposed
      to the normal final battle.
    
    Note: Some people have said that being able to trigger other
       epilogues will prevent this ending from triggering. This
       is not true. The only triggers are Val must be 500+ and
       he must clear 10-6 by himself. Tested by myself.
    
    Note 2: This ending does not lead to the Post Game. It will
       lead to a new cycle, however.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 2.L. - Post Game: All Cleared
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Requirements: Beat a game normally to reach Post Game. Pass
       the bills for unlocking Extra Battles 1 through 6. Beat
       6 and you will have unlocked the Post Game Ending.
    
    Note: This doesn't prompt a new cycle.
    
    ============================================================
    Part 3.0. Full Endings Run
    ============================================================
    
    This section contains strategies and what I consider to be
    the optimal way to run through the game and acquire all the
    endings. I will not post a walkthrough on how to get through
    the game the first time around (as I strongly suggest that
    you enjoy it and not do something like following a guide to
    ruin your entertainment and experience).
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 3.A. - Recommended Ending Order
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
    You can save prior to the bad ends and continue without
    starting a new cycle. However, this will not record the
    ending in the Data Shop. So for you OCD players out there
    like me, this game will take a total of 12 runs.
    
    I strongly recommend completing the endings in this order:
    
     1. Normal Ending, Artina Epilogue
     2. Bad Ending Emizel #1
     3. Bad Ending Emizel #2
     4. Bad Ending Fuka
     5. Bad Ending Desco
     6. Bad Ending Vulcanus (?)
     7. Bad Ending Axel
     8. True Ending: Battle Against God
     9. Normal Ending, Fenrich Epilogue
    10. Normal Ending, Fuka Epilogue
    11. Normal Ending, Desco Epilogue
    12. Normal Ending, Emizel Epilogue
    
    The epilogue endings can be done in any order, but I just
    like to go down the list with the exception of Artina since
    hers is the default and does not require extra work.
    
    The Post Game ending can be acquired on any of the Normal
    Ending runs. I recommend that you get it on your last run
    since you have to re-unlock all of the Extra Battles and
    whatnot. However, if you wish to do it on your first or an
    earlier run, by all means. Just don't say I didn't warn you.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 3.B. - How to Start a New Cycle
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Doing any of the bad ends or the true end will lead into
    the save menu which will start a new cycle. However, if you
    have completed the game normally, you must talk to the Time
    Traveler NPC at the back of your base once you reach Post
    Game. Pick the option to go back in time and the Time
    Traveler will grant you your wish. Until you reach Post Game
    again, the Time Traveler will be gone.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 3.C. - Preparations for Speed Running Endings
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This part of the guide will assume that you've cleared the
    game normally at least once and will have access to the
    majority of unlocked classes and monsters. Here's a list of
    classes and monsters you should create:
    
    1. Create 9x Prinnies with the Good-For-Nothing setting.
       Take their points out of anywhere you wish. Create a
       humanoid class with low HP using the Good-For-Nothing
       setting as well. These 10 units will be used to speed
       run your bad ends.
    
       You will group together the Prinnies, have your low HP
       humanoid pick up one of the Prinnies, and toss it upon
       the group. This will causing a huge explosion chain and
       the damage from each explosion will kill off the low HP
       humanoid, too, allowing for an instant KO.
    
       That said, it's in your best interest to not level up
       the humanoid. You may use the Prinnies in battle if you
       wish since their deaths are practically immediate upon
       receiving an explosion from another Prinny of any level.
    
    2. Create 3 or 4 Mages or Witches. Preferably of different
       elements. Boost their lowest ranked magic spell (Fire,
       Wind, Ice, or Star) as high as you can so you can get a
       huge Area of Effect and immense range. I recommend you
       to level them a bit, too. (I had mine leveled to 300)
    
       If possible, equip them with an Evility that raises
       their magic range, too.
    
    3. Create a healer. Raise her lowest ranked Heal spell as
       high as you can. This healer will be used in a few of the
       story maps that possess Reverse Damage. I recommend you
       to level her, too. (My healer was 300-ish)
    
       If possible, have the healer learn some bow skills,
       too, in case you need an extra attack to finish a map.
    
    4. Create a Mothman and unlock the Nether Shoe Lab if you
       haven't already. Level up the Mothman a bit and if you
       want, take it to Chara World a few times to raise its
       movement range. Place the Mothman under the Nether Shoe
       Lab. This makes the Mothman move much farther but only
       in straight lines. However, this works well with the
       Mothman since it's a flying unit, which allows it to
       move past enemies. You'll be using this Mothman to make
       bee-lines towards annoying Geo Symbols positioned at the
       back of some maps.
    
    5. Unlock the Rosen Queen evil symbol and place it on the
       map somewhere. Check the shop and see if it has shoes for
       sale. If it doesn't, place it somewhere else and keep
       checking until it does. For all of your speed runners,
       with the exception of the sacrificial Prinnies and low-HP
       humanoid, buy for them 3 pairs of shoes. If you can get
       Angel's Shoes, that'd be optimal since they're plentiful,
       add +1 Move, and add a lot of Jump. This will speed up
       your playthroughs by a whole lot. Remember, 3 pairs of
       shoes for everyone.
    
       One place on the map that I know will sell Angel's Shoes
       is the area after clearing Mt. Ordeal 4. If you don't
       have that unlocked, just settle for something else with
       movement and jump bonuses.
    
    6. Level up your main attacking force at at least level
       300-ish and at least 500-ish for Val (so you don't need
       to level him later for the True End ending run). If you
       want to be safe, have your story characters be around
       at least level 1000 so you can steamroll through the
       story if needed.
    
    7. Keep a weapon on you that's at least level 10 so you can
       have quick access to the end of Episode 3.
    
    8. Before jumping onto the ending speed run spree, remember
       to nullify any Stronger Enemy Bills using the Weakest
       Enemy Bill.
    
    
    ============================================================
    Part 4.0. Speed Run Strategies
    ============================================================
    
    This section is by no means a walkthrough. This is mostly
    for those who have followed my recommended preparations and
    would like some tips I've picked up along the way to quickly
    clear stages.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 4.A. - Episode 1 Stages
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Stage 1-1: Rehabilitation Room
    - Throw the Prinny on the side towards the center group and
    you'll have cleared the map.
    
    -
    
    Stage 1-2: Reincarnation Site
    - Straightforward beatdown. Nothing special here.
    
    -
    
    Stage 1-3: Prinselytise Room
    - Use AoE to clear this map quickly.
    
    -
    
    Stage 1-4: Albatross Collar
    - Straightforward beatdown. Nothing special here.
    
    -
    
    Stage 1-5: Disaster First
    - Lose here if you wish to see Emizel's Bad End #1.
    
    - Straightforward beatdown. Nothing special here.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 4.B. - Episode 2 Stages
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Stage 2-1: Rotten Sickbed
    - If you have 3 Angel's Shoes on your characters, you can
    scale the walls easily. Makes way for a faster stage clear.
    
    -
    
    Stage 2-2: Hypha Invasion
    - Use a mage to snipe the two Geo Blocks so you can use your
    AoE skills on the group of Zombies. Everything else is a
    simple beatdown.
    
    -
    
    Stage 2-3: Forest of Corpses
    - If Val has Rune Dimension, it's amazing here. Use your
    mages to clear out the rows of monsters.
    
    -
    
    Stage 2-4: Whispering Curse
    - Lose here if you wish to see Emizel's Bad End #2.
    
    - Clear the path of Sludges first, then run your mages in
    and clear the ghosts and boss. Killing the boss here doesn't
    end the battle so clean up the rest of the monsters.
    
    - 
    
    Stage 2-5: Plan of the Wicked
    - Rush to the back and take out the boss and/or Geo Block.
    Afterwards, clean up whatever monsters come your way. This
    is a simple beatdown.
    
    -
    
    Stage 2-6: Altar of Waste
    - Rush Val and Fenrich to the back Geoblocks. Take them out
    by the second turn so that your mages can cast at range and
    so that not more clones will be created.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 4.C. - Episode 3 Stages
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Remember to rearrange your party roster since Fuka joined.
    
    -
    
    Stage 3-1: Murder Labrynth
    - Huge map. Just take your mages and go wild with AoE since
    they tend to cluster nicely.
    
    -
    
    Stage 3-2: Searing Euthanasia
    - Monsters are clustered nicely for AoE spells. Make use of
    your mages.
    
    -
    
    Stage 3-3: Chains of Judgment
    - Large map. Personally, I'd ignore the Damage 20%'s since
    if this is a second playthrough, you'd kill all of these
    monsters before 5 turns are over. Just steamroll them.
    
    -
    
    Stage 3-4: Vengeful Road
    - Split up your party into two here and have your mages
    snipe the side lines while your melee units confront the
    middle groups.
    
    -
    
    Stage 3-5: Dark Execution
    - Annoyingly large stage. Use your mages to hit high height
    targets if your melee units can't.
    
    -
    
    Stage 3-6: The Forbidden Cell
    - Equip your level 10+ Weapon to access this area. Remember
    to switch back your weapon after unlocking the area. 
    
    - Lose here if you need to view Desco's Bad End.
    
    - Val's Bloody Hole can hit targets on all sides of them so
    you can still use AoE attacks. Still, make a bee-line for
    the No Range Geoblock and get rid of it. After that, snipe
    Desco with your mage. You don't have to clear all enemies on
    the map.
    
    - If you have Val with +2 Movement from Chara World and
    Fenrich with +2 Movement as well, equip both of them with
    3 boots. Take out the Mothman in the middle and run both
    Fenrich and Val straight down the middle. Have Fenrich throw
    Val closer to Desco and he will be able to reach her with a
    Rune Dimension. This will clear the stage immediately if he
    defeats her.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 4.D. - Episode 4 Stages
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Remember to rearrange your party roster since Desco joined.
    
    -
    
    Stage 4-1: Ultra Security
    - Nothing too special. Use mages and Desco to clear units on
    the other side of the No Entry geopanels. Have your melee
    units clear units on their way around.
    
    -
    
    Stage 4-2: Rotten Core
    - Lots of ninjas. Attack them from the side and rear so you
    won't have to deal with their evasion passive.
    
    -
    
    Stage 4-3: Total Fabrication
    - Annoyingly long stage. Have two people with good throwing
    (like Val and Fenrich) to go different paths. Remember, for
    the last ninja, you only need to clear the blue blocks and
    not the aqua blocks.
    
    -
    
    Stage 4-4: Conspiracy
    - Use your mages to snipe across the walls. Have them take
    the legendary chests, too. Easy stage.
    
    -
    
    Stage 4-5: Evil Propaganda
    - Use your mages to snipe the ninjas on the side and the red
    Geoblock that causes Ally Damage 50%. Kill off the rest of
    the ninjas.
    
    -
    
    Stage 4-6: Fall of Zenith
    - Mages with decent AoE can take out the front of the center
    tower. Send one mage to the right side of the map to take
    out the two ninjas next to the yellow Geoblock. Send every-
    one else to the left to make their way around.

    Part 4.E. - Episode 5 Stages
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Remember to rearrange your party roster since Emizel joined.
    
    -
    
    Stage 5-1: Scream Park
    - If you have enough movement, clean up the geoblocks in the
    back. With them gone, the map's much easier.
    
    -
    
    Stage 5-2: Lost Dignity
    - With enough movement range and AoE, you can clean out all
    four groups at once. Easy map.
    
    -
    
    Stage 5-3: Wounded Pride
    - Take out your healers here for the Reverse Damage panels.
    If they have 5 panel AoE, this should be very quick.
    
    -
    
    Stage 5-4: Ruin Coaster
    - Have your mages cast their AoE spells while standing on
    the base panel to take out the Bouncers on the side and the
    three middle units on the green panels. A Rune Dimension
    from Val (if he has it) will take care of the remaining
    characters on the green panels. Finish off the remaining
    Bouncers.
    
    -
    
    Stage 5-5: Frantic Wheel
    - Use your mage to take out the red No Entry Geoblock. Then,
    have anyone with high movespeed to throw the Mighty Enemy
    Geoblock between the two Rifle Demons out of the way. The
    rest is easy.
    
    -
    
    Stage 5-6: Murder-Go-Round
    - Lose here if you need to view Vulcanus' Bad End.
    
    - Take out Vulcanus(?) early. Desco's Yog Sothoth can reach
    her from the ground. Throw the Prinnies. Prinny explosions
    will even set off big Prinnies. Fun times.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 4.F. - Episode 6 Stages
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Remember to rearrange your party since Vulcanus joined.
    
    -
    
    Stage 6-1: Winter Cemetery
    - Use Vulcanus to shoot the No Entry block. Throw your mages
    across the map to take out the enemies before they can even
    Magichange. Easy stuff.
    
    -
    
    Stage 6-2: Oblivion Hill
    - Throw the blue Geoblock to clear the wall. If your units
    have 3 Angel's Shoes equipped each, they can clear the
    wall easily. Use AoE attacks to clear the map quickly.
    
    -
    
    Stage 6-3: Ghoul Standard
    - Don't break the Purple Geoblock. It causes the tombstones
    to break and summon forth more enemies. Otherwise, just kill
    everything you see. Nothing too special.
    
    -
    
    Stage 6-4: Abysmal Mirage
    - If you have anyone with a throw range of 6, you can throw
    them across the pit. Otherwise, it's not a big deal. Just
    clean the map quickly before the clones waste more time.
    
    -
    
    Stage 6-5: The Defiled
    - Don't use End Turn here unless you absolutely have to.
    Monsters will spawn even if your queued attacks would have
    killed them off. Otherwise, easy map.
    
    -
    
    Stage 6-6: Fractured Bouquet
    - Directly target clone blocks with regular attacks. If you
    have three Angel's Shoes equipped on your characters, they
    can scale the cliffs like it's nothing. Just finish off the
    clones before they get out of hand.
    
    -
    
    Stage 6-7: Infringement
    - Lose here if you need to view Axel's Bad End.
    
    - Just beat them down.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 4.G. - Episode 7 Stages
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Stage 7-1: Rebel Invasion
    - Use mages to snipe the legendary treasure chests. The rest
    should be easy.
    
    -
    
    Stage 7-2: Shard of Regret
    - If you have Angel's Shoes, you should be able to scale
    the sides of the walls easily. Strike them from the sides.
    
    -
    
    Stage 7-3: Busted Mythology
    - Angel's Shoes allows you to scale the walls. Take out the
    enemies while standing on the green panels.
    
    -
    
    Stage 7-4: Dark History
    - No real special strategies here. Break the green Geo
    Block and then reign chaos onto your foes.
    
    -
    
    Stage 7-5: Post-Purge Purge
    - Throw Prinnies to clear the map faster.
    
    -
    
    Stage 7-6: Overlord's Test
    - Use your mages to deal AoE on all four sides. This should
    be a quick and easy win.
    
    -
    
    Stage 7-7: Feast of the Wolf
    - Run one of your mages to the upper left corner of the map
    to clear out the legendary chests. Other than that, nothing
    too significant here other than a normal beatdown.
    
    -
    
    Stage 7-8: Evil Office
    - Use your best AoE here. Taking out the boss early doesn't
    end the battle unfortunately so just beat everything down.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 4.H. - Episode 8 Stages
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Stage 8-1: Rising Tragedy
    - Take out the Geoblocks first if you're not strong enough.
    Otherwise, use your best AoE attacks here to clear the map
    quickly.
    
    -
    
    Stage 8-2: Deadly Elevator
    - Annoying stage. Throw the enemies next to each other (and
    off the Geoblocks) and use AoE attacks on them to end it
    quickly.
    
    -
    
    Stage 8-3: Section D
    - Great place for AoE. Use your mages to take out the
    monsters out of range to clear the map quickly. If lined up
    correctly, mages with 7 panel AoE can take out the two
    flora beasts from across the wall.
    
    -
    
    Stage 8-4: Chaos Factory
    - AoE heaven. Clean out the map with your best AoE.
    
    -
    
    Stage 8-5: Section G-9
    - AoE isn't too useful here due to monster positions.
    Just spread out and take out whatever comes your way.
    
    -
    
    Stage 8-6: Two-Headed Dragon
    - Have your casters use their spells while standing on the
    base panel. Everything should be easy to take out.
    
    -
    
    Stage 8-7: Mission Improbable
    - Attack the first column of Geo Blocks until you can throw
    the red Geo Block down to remove the entire row of reds.
    Then run down anyone with straight line AoE's.
    
    -
    
    Stage 8-8A: True Final Weapon
    - Clean out as much as you can using mages before the No
    Entry Geo Blocks move out of the way. Then rush in with your
    melee units to clean out the boss. The battle doesn't end if
    you kill off the boss so clean up the rest of the units.
    
    -
    
    Stage 8-8B: True Final Weapon
    - Straight out brawl. Hope you're strong enough.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 4.I. - Episode 9 Stages
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Stage 9-1: Gloomy Moon
    - With three Angel's Shoes, your characters should be able
    to scale the wall in the middle. Just jump over it and clean
    up the enemies.
    
    -
    
    Stage 9-2: 3rd Colony
    - Use ranged attackers like Gunners or Archers to attack the
    Geo Blocks directly. Break your way through the middle and
    attack the Ignition Device. Once that thing is dead, the
    battle is over.
    
    -
    
    Stage 9-3: Parasite Nest
    - Break your way to the middle and kill off the Ignition
    Device. Once it's dead, the battle is over.
    
    -
    
    Stage 9-4: Concrete Knowledge
    - Destroy the Geo Blocks on the side to remove the Silence
    effect in the middle. Use your mages to kill off the enemies
    but don't use End Turn or else more enemies will spawn.
    
    -
    
    Stage 9-5: Evil Heresy
    - Use your ranged units to kill off the enemies behind the
    No Entry panels. Break through the middle and clean up.
    
    -
    
    Stage 9-6: Sign of Demolition
    - Kill as many monsters as you can before the turn ends.
    This reduces the amount of magichange done. Everything else
    is a straightforward beat down.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 4.J. - Final Episode Stages
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Stage 10-1: Swarming Malice
    - Just stay off the Byebye Panels and clean up the enemies.
    Don't bother destroying the Green Geo Block unless you want
    to make the center have the Byebye Panel effect, too.
    
    -
    
    Stage 10-2: Disaster Dimension
    - Your mages can use magic while standing on the base
    panel. Use them to clean out the Sludges. Easy map.
    
    -
    
    Stage 10-3: Ruler's Wound
    - Use your long ranged units to take out the mages on the
    pillars. Everything else is a straightforward beatdown.
    
    -
    
    Stage 10-4: Dark Mud
    - Use your mages to attack the monsters from afar. Use
    your healer for the giant Succubus since she's on Reverse
    Damage blocks.
    
    -
    
    Stage 10-5: Deadly Option
    - Those with three Angel's Shoes can scale the wall here.
    If you don't have them, have a strong mage step on the Warp
    Geo Block (use the Character List if you can't find it).
    After that, start reigning death on the second floor. Clean
    up everything else. Just remember that using End Turn will
    still spawn enemies.
    
    -
    
    Stage 10-6: Boiling Point
    - For the True End path, finish this stage with a level 500+
    Valvatorez. Dispatching anyone else will put you back onto
    the Normal End path.
    
    - If you're solo-ing with Val, take out monsters from one
    side and let the others come at you. Take them out
    individually and try not to get surrounded.
    
    - If you're doing the normal end path, clean out the
    sides with AoE and be sure to kill off the monsters to
    prevent them from Magichanging with their allies.
    
    Stage 10-7A: Defying God (Normal End Path)
    - Defeating the boss here will end the battle. Clean out
    the enemy in front of you and rush the boss.
    
    -
    
    Stage 10-7B: Defying God (True End Path)
    - You'll be surrounded by four level 1000 enemies. If you're
    strong enough, take them on individually. If you're not,
    take them on one at a time. Go around in a circle if needed.
    Otherwise, this is a very straightforward battle.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 4.K. - Post Game Extra Battle Stages
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Extra Battle 1: Dark Show Opening!
    - To unlock this battle, clear the Post-Game and pass the
      bill called "Attend the Dark Hero Live Show" (which costs
      1,000 mana).
    
    - Depending on your levels, this can be an easy battle or
      difficult. In either case, use AoE to take out the mobs of
      enemies quickly. Axel is level 100 so it shouldn't be too
      tough.
    
    -
    
    Extra Battle 2: Love Missionaries
    - To unlock this battle, clear the Post-Game and pass the
      bill called "The Love Evangelist Appears!" (which costs
      2,000 mana).
    
    - The level 200 Flonne is encased in a heart shaped barrier
      created by Geopanels. If you can take her and the others
      out with Aoe, go for it. Otherwise, use a gunner to target
      the blue Geo Block that Flonne is standing on to get rid
      of the Enemy Turbo boost. I don't recommend taking out the
      red No Entry Geo Block since it's better to keep the
      enemies inside contained than running about.
    
    -
    
    Extra Battle 3: Volunteering!
    - To unlock this battle, clear the Post-Game and pass the
      bill called "The Legendary Delinquent Appears!" (which
      costs 4,000 mana).
    
    - The No Entry barrier between your base panel and the level
      300 Raspberyl cannot be removed. Defeat the enemies around
      your base panel and move around it. You'll probably have
      to throw someone into the green Geo Panel area in order to
      take out the enemies there. If Raspberyl is giving you
      problems, make a tower to take out the cyan No Ranged
      Geo Block and cast from the safety of your base.
    
    -
    
    Extra Battle 4: Yes! Nice-Bodied!
    - To unlock this battle, clear the Post-Game and pass the
      bill called "The Nice-Bodied Appears!?" (which costs
      8,000 mana).
    
    - Etna here is level 500. That isn't too big of a deal if
      you've been training your troops. The Prinnies on the side
      cannot be thrown, but they're easy enough to take down.
      If you want though, you can throw one of your own Prinnies
      to set them off in an explosion chain. I don't recommend
      this as they're pretty widely spread. If Etna is giving
      you trouble, I suggest you use the Lift-Sacrifice method
      to take her out (in section 4.L.).
    
    - Don't destroy the Geo Blocks here either. They can lead
      into a near impossible battle situation (which while can
      be remedied but not worth the effort).
    
    -
    
    Extra Battle 5: From Anether World! (oh god, the pun)
    - To unlock this battle, clear the Post-Game and pass the
      bill called "Another Netherworld's Overlord Appears!"
      (which costs 16,000 mana).
    
    - No Geo effects here, thankfully. However, there is a level
      1,000 Laharl to fight. The monsters around him will dual
      Magichange with him and can make this a very difficult
      fight if you let it drag on. Use the Lift-Sacrifice method
      to take him out if he's giving you trouble. Other than
      that, this is a very straight forward battle. Just very,
      very rough.
    
    - 
    
    Extra Battle 6: New Main Character!
    - To unlock this battle, clear the Post-Game and pass the
      bill called "Destroy the Root of All Evil!" (which costs
      32,000 mana). This bill has a 1% pass rate so just force
      it or ultra bribe your senators.
    
    - The level 1,500 Asagi is blocked off for two turns, allow-
      ing her to dual Magichange with two giant rifle demons.
      This makes the battle extremely difficult if you're
      underleveled. In fact, this battle can be difficult even
      if you are properly leveled. The best strategy that can be
      used here is to lure Asagi to your base panel and to use
      the Lift-Sacrifice method.
    
    - Congrats! You've unlocked the Post-Game ending.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Part 4.L. - General Bossing Strategies
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
    - Lift-Sacrifice Strategy -
    
    If a boss is giving you problems, you can always try out the
    Lift-Sacrifice Strategy. This strategy requires a character
    who can actually deal damage to the boss in question. After
    dealing damage to the boss, have a sacrifice character run
    up to the boss and lift it and end the turn. The boss will
    crush the the sacrifice character but will not act on that
    turn. Repeat these steps by damaging the boss and lifting
    the boss before ending the turn. That said, this strategy
    has limited turn usage, but more often than not, it is a
    viable strategy to defeat many strong bosses.
    
    - Heart Cannon Strategy -
    
    Have two strong melee characters in the Heart Cannon Evil
    Symbol. Have those two strong melee characters surround the
    boss in question. When issuing actions, do not use Execute
    Action until all actions have been queued up. It's best to
    leave the two melee characters to perform their actions at
    the very end. With a large enough chain, your Heart Cannon
    characters should be able to give the boss a severe beating
    before it is able to attack. Usually, one Heart Cannon chain
    is enough to take out most bosses.
