    Legion: Guilt
    Attribute: Sword
    Description: Knightly Legion; attacks with Swords
    Lvl 1: 3 Legions
    Lvl 2: 4 Legions
    Lvl 3: 5 Legions
    Lvl 4: 6 Legions
    Assist: Midnight Punisher
    Lvl 1: 2 Legions attack for set period of time
    Lvl 2: 4 Legions attack for longer period of time
    Lvl 3: 6 Legions attack for extended period of time
    Lvl 4: 8 Legions attack enemy for longest period of time
    **All assist attacks require the same amount of Soul power. The amount does not
    increase with each level.
    Lvl 1: Dark Ripper (+2 combo hits)
    Lvl 2: Rising Phoenix (additional combo move)
    Lvl 3: Ground Zero
    Lvl 4: Use the above techniques without equipping crest.
    Strength: Max: 8, Spiritual Max: 10
    Defense: Max: 8, Spiritual Max: 10
    ***This legion is best used for fighting large groups of organic enemies. As
    you increase the strength level and force level of each Legion, their attack
    frequency and attack strength will increase, allow for maximum damage against
    enemies. The best time to summon the Guilt is when you are in the CENTRE of a
    group of enemies, so that once they are summoned, they will attack in a
    formation surrounding you, while protecting from engulfing enemies.
    Good uses for Guilt:
    a) Lognagaiser (Side A)
    b) Maponos (Boss #6)
    c) Fast moving enemies
    Best Legion Combonations:
    1)Use Guilt in conjunction with Malice for a dual pronged attack approach. If
    you have both equipped, you are prepared for all kinds of enemies. Malice for
    metallic or armoured enemies, and Guilt for the organic fast  (or slow) moving
    2)Equip both Guilt and Blasphemy for a full on hard hitting approach. This
    combo is good for clearing out LARGE groups of enemies. Use the assist command
    for Blasphemy to kick a bomb into a group of enemies, and follow up with Guilt
    to clean up the stranglers. The best thing about this combo is that it is
    useful for taking out enemies that respawn constantly. If you take out the
    majority of enemies in one go, they will all respawn at the same time, allowing
    for you to repeat the process without having to regroup around moving enemies,
    since they are all attacking from their original positions.
    Legion: Hatred
    Attribute: Power
    Description: Behemoth man-like legion; uses hand-to-hand combat
    Lvl 1: 2 legions
    Lvl 2: 3 legions
    Lvl 3: 4 legions
    Lvl 4: 5 legions
    Assist: Bad Karma
    Lvl 1: Hatred hold off enemies while you attack
    Lvl 2: Hatred holds off enemy and damages at same time
    Lvl 3: Hatred holds of and damages enemy for longer period of time
    Lvl 4: Same as level 3, only extended period of time
    Lvl 1: N/A
    Lvl 2: Breakdown lvl 1
    Lvl 3: Breakdown lvl 2
    Lvl 4: Use Breakdown lvl 2 wihtout equipping crest
    Attack: Max: 8, Spiritual Max: 10
    Defense: Max: 8, Spiritual Max: 10
    **This legion is very useful for fighting off the larger enemies like the Ogmas
    and the Guirath's. Once you have 4 Hatred Legion, you can hold the R1 button
    for parallel movement, and the Hatred will surround the nearby enemy. If your
    strength is high, Hatred won't even give the enemies a chance to attack since
    they can attack really fast if you keep pressing triangle. Hatred is good for
    dismantling the organice enemies, but is almost useless for attacking the
    armoured, or metallic enemies.
    Good Uses for Hatred:
    a) Maponos
    b) Zagan (Stage 3)
    c) Large enemies, enemy generators
    d) Spreading out tight groups of enemies
    Best Combonations with Hatred:
    1)Equip both Hatred and Flawed together. Not only is Flawed good for attacking
    metallic enemies, but they can attack enemies while they are down. SO if you
    are faced with one of the Behemoth standing enemies, get Hatred to attack until
    he falls flat on his back, and quickly summon Flawed to drill him in the gut
    while hes down. If your strength is high enough, you can dispatch enemies like
    this in one swift attack.
    2)Hatred and Arrogance make a great team. You can either use Arrogance's
    invicnibility assist to make your way through enemies, or you can use Hatred's
    tackle attack to to burst through large groups of enemies. Both of these
    abilities are good if you want to go through a level as fast as possible, and
    attack only the target enemies. This way you can plow through normal enemies,
    and go straight to your target, without wasting time with idle fighting.
    3)Hatred and Thanatos make for the best hard hitting team ever. If you have
    Thanatos in his adult form thats even better, or even his Perfect form. There
    are two approaches to this combonation of Legions. You can have Hatred break up
    a group of enemies, and follow up with the Ignorant Masses to take out
    incredibly large amounts of enemies, or you can do something else. As you
    should know, Thanatos does a 4 or 5 hit attack on groups of enemies casueing
    them to go flying. Once he has performed this attack, call back Thanatos and
    switch to Hatred. While the enemies are recovering, Hatred can go up to the
    enemy, and pound them into the ground. This strategy is especially helpful when
    trying to get through level 12 or 13 with all of the tough skinned enemies, and
    it helps a lot if you have either 4 or 5 Hatred legions to attack with.
    Legion: Malice
    Attribute: Arrow
    Description: Small archer-like legions; uses energy crossbow to attack
    Lvl 1: 2 legions
    Lvl 2: 3 legions
    Lvl 3: 4 legions
    Lvl 4: 5 legions
    Assist: Great Depressor
    Lvl 1: Summon Malice for breif period of time to attack enemies
    Lvl 2: Same thing, longer time.
    Lvl 3: Even longer time.
    Lvl 4: Longest time
    Lvl 1: Prisoner (attack move)
    Lvl 2: Long Distance Lock-on
    Lvl 3: Spartan (attack addition)
    Lvl 4: Use Prisoner, Long Lock-on and Spartan w/o equipping crest.
    Attack: Max: 8, Spiritual Max: 10
    Defense: Max: 8, Spiritual Max: 10
    Good uses for Malice:
    a) Volvor (break away armour)
    b) Gil Volvor (break away armour)
    c) Gil Balor (snipe weak spot)
    d) Sniper mode to attack weak spots of enemies.
    e) All metallic enemies
    Best Combonations with Hatred:
    1) Equip Malice with Claw. Together, you can take out all metallic enemies with
    ease. Best suited for the stages with an abundance of Metallic enemies like
    Stage 3 and stage 6. Claw can also defend against organic enemies, which takes
    of any that may appear in those respective levels.
    2) Malice and **Any hard hitter: Use this combo to your advantage in tough
    enemy battles like the Danu's, or for Bosses that only expose their weak spot
    after being attacked, like Gil Balor or Lognagaiser. If you do chose this
    combo, remember that it is best suited for players who like to let their
    legions do all the talking, while you do the walking. In some cases, it is
    better to make yourself the hard hitter, and then use Malice but you run the
    risk of losing life, if you are low on it. I think this would be best to use
    against small groups of enemies or particularlly large single ones.
    3) Malice and Guilt are sometimes the best duo in the beginning of this game.
    Using their respective strengths against different monsters will win the battle
    in more than one scenario, and will usually be the most reliable since you KNOW
    that Malice is wicked against metallic enemies, while Guilt will slaughter the
    organics. ALthough, this combo becomes obsolete when Claw comes into the
    picture because Claw can take care of both Metallic, Organic, and even the
    spiked enemies that you would usually have to use Blasphemy to kill (like the
    Spike balls).
    Legion: Arrogance
    Attribute: Shield
    Description: "X" Shaped legion; uses energy to stun enemies for set period of
    Lvl 1: 2 legions
    Lvl 2: 3 legions
    lvl 3: 4 legions
    Lvl 4: 5 legions
    Assist: Rampage
    Lvl 1: Arrogance makes Sieg invicible for set amount of time
    Lvl 2: Sieg is invicible for longer time, and shield protects from stunning
    Lvl 3: Same as Lvl 2, only longer period of time.
    Lvl 4: Longest period of time for invicibility.
    Lvl 1: N/A
    Lvl 2: Avenger (counter attack)
    Lvl 3: Avenger Lvl 2 (stronger counter attack)
    Lvl 4: Use Avenger Lvl 2 without equipping crest.
    Attack: Max: 8, Spiritual Max: 10
    Defense: Max: 8, Spiritual Max: 10
    **I don't particularly like to use Arrogance, simply because you can mostly get
    through the game without ever using him, but sometimes you may wish to take a
    more defensive approach to things, and need to use their invincibility for a
    breif period in order to pass a group of extremely difficult enemies. I've
    never maxed Arrogance, and have almost never used him except to get a feel for
    his abilities, but thats about it. I will do my best  to give you advice on how
    to use them though.
    Good uses for Arrogance:
    a) If surrouded by enemies, use Rampage to boost yourself through them.
    b) If you can find a good strategy to defeat a boss or group of enemies, use
    Rampage to go head first and worry about defense later.
    c) use Force mode and parallel movement to make a protective barrier around
    Good combos for Arrogance:
    1) The best combo for Arrogance is Hatred. If you use Hatred and Arrogance's
    respective assist attacks, you can plow through enemies and make your way to
    target enemies without having to bother taking out mass amounts of enemies
    before you get your chance to strike. IMO, Arrogance is the least useful Legion
    in the game, although for gamers who like the defensive approach, they can use
    their defensive shielding to protect from enemies, or the Rampage instead of
    using a healing item.
    Legion: Flawed
    Attribute: Claw
    Description: Ninja-esque legion, jumps high; uses metal claws to attack
    Lvl 1: 3 legions
    Lvl 2: 4 legions
    Lvl 3: 5 legions
    Lvl 6: 6 legions
    Assist: Laughing Stock
    Lvl 1: Set a booby trap for enemies, when it is hit, Flawed emerges to do a
    drill attack to them
    Lvl 2: Same thing, only more attacks, and stronger hits
    Lvl 3: Even more, and stronger attacks.
    Lvl 4: The most attacks with the highest strength.
    Lvl 1: High Jump (1.5x jump height)
    Lvl 2: Double Jump
    Lvl 3: Night Raid (stun attack)
    Lvl 4: Use High Jump, Double Jump, and Night Raid w/o equipping crest.
    Attack: Max: 8, Spiritual Max: 10
    Defense: Max: 8, Spiritual Max: 10
    **Flawed will eventually become the main legion that you have equipped all the
    time. You will eventually realize all of Flawed's strengths, and that they have
    very few, even almost no weaknesses when it comes to fighting normal enemies,
    AND bosses. The only flaw I can find in them, is that they have hard times
    hitting moving enemies, and need to be told to attack, otherwise they will
    idley slash away at some enemies. Although, by the time you aquire Flawed, you
    should be accustomed to using the attack orders button, so using Flawed will be
    a piece of cake. The advantages Flawed has are phenomenal. Flawed can take out
    BOTH organic and metallic enemies. Other enemies, like the Hover Spikes and
    Walking Spikes, that usually need to be taken out with Blasphemy, can be taken
    out with Flawed as well. Flawed's attack also makes many hits when performed
    correctly. In one push of the attack orders button, they can do anywhere from
    6-12 hits to a single enemy, and if you have six legions, this makes for a
    great combo.
    Good uses for Flawed:
    a) All types of enemies, except fast moving ones.
    b) Bosses whose weak spots are on top of their heads, or in an unreachable
    c) Reach enemies who chose to attack atop high balconys or rooftops, because
    they can jump high.
    d) Basically, a very well rounded Legion, the best next to Thanatos
    Good Combonations for Flawed:
    1) Technically, any legion with Flawed is a good combonation, but i'll give you
    the best ones. The first is Blasphemy and Flawed. Any level with a particularly
    large amount of enemy generators will be toast when attacked by this duet. Use
    Blasphemy's Crimson Carnage assist type attack, and follow up with the
    unleashing of Flawed, to drill the Generators in to the ground. A good example
    of this type of system is in Stage 3 where you have to take out 5 enemy
    generators in order to proceed through the level.
    2) If you want to dismantle a large group of enemies, who are always staying
    together, use Arrogance and Flawed. You can use Arrogance' assist move to get
    into the centre of them, and then use Flawed to stun them and tackle them to
    the ground. This is especially good, since when you summon a legion near an
    enemy they are usually knocked to the ground, and Flawed's ability to attack
    grounded enemies is priceless in these kinds of situations.
    3) Flawed and Hatred are the best power house combo in the game, if you exclude
    Thanatos from any given equation. Flawed's jumping abilities, as well as
    Hatred's tackling ability, allow Sieg to dodge and plow through opponents with
    ease. Mind you that this is best suited for enemies that appear in large groups
    and respawn in the same places. Since Hatred move so slow, it would suck to get
    caught in the middle of a group of entirely different enemies that you haven't
    had time to make good battle plans for. This combo is best used in levels 7 and
    8. (See also Hatred combos)
    4) Flawed and Thanatos: 'Nuff Said.
    Legions: Blasphemy
    Attribute: Bomb
    Description: Red mine-shaped legion; uses Kamikaze techniques to attack
    Lvl 1: 1 legion
    Lvl 2: 2 legions
    Lvl 3: 3 legions
    Lvl 4: 4 legions
    Assist: Crimson Carnage
    Lvl 1: Kick a Blasphemy at a group of enemies.
    Lvl 2: Larger blast radius, and stronger attack.
    Lvl 3: Same thing as Lvl 2.
    Lvl 4: Large Blast radius with high strength.
    Lvl 1: soul +100
    Lvl 2: soul +200
    Lvl 3: soul +300
    Lvl 4: soul +400
    **These Enchant levels also come with defense bonuses, but are sometimes
    insignificant to the amount of attack and defense ups you can grab by replaying
    Stage 2 over and over again.
    Attack: Max: 8, Spiritual Max: 10
    Defense: Max: 8, Spiritual Max: 10
    **One thing to note. With Blasphemy, you may never want to summon them in Force
    mode, since each attack cunsumes Soul, and the same effect can be obtained
    through their Assist attack. Blasphemy has the ability to explode on impact
    into one or a group of enemies. You must learn to use this to your advantage
    later in the game if you can't find any other way of passing through certain
    levels. Blasphemy is essential for destorying Spike balls when you don't have
    Flawed in your party.
    Good uses for Blasphemy:
    a) Destroying Rudo Lognagaiser's Shield
    b) Attacking and damaging large groups of enemies.
    c) Destorying spiked enemies
    d) Stat bonuses
    Good combonations for Blasphemy
    1) Blasphemy and Guilt are always a good combonation. If you launch a Blasphemy
    at a group of enemies, you can summon Guilt and use the parallel movement to go
    in for the kill, like creating a wall of destruction headed their way. The
    reason you want to use Blasphemy is because you want to disperse and knock down
    as many enemies as posssible before you turn Guilt into a moving wall of
    swords. I've never had a problem with this combonation ever in this game. This
    is how I got through levels like Stage 3 with a 3% time on the total results
    screen. Don't get over zealous though, this isn't a good strategy for every
    stage; mainly for for the ones early on in the game; the latter levels will
    have you rethinking your strategy since the enemies respawn so much, and become
    a lot stronger and won't be knocked out so easily.
    2) If you are an expert at getting soul, and countering enemy attacks this
    combo is for you. Equip both Arrogance and Blasphemy. Using Arrogance's sheild
    abilities and their assist commands, you can make your way through many groups
    of enemies, and use Blasphemy to blow them to bits. You can launch all attacks
    from varied distance with no worry of ever getting hit. (Except for the laser
    shoosting enemies, but they aren't that difficult to dodge anyway.) The reason
    you need to know how to get a lot of soul, is because you will have to go melee
    for a while if you want to keep launching assist attacks since they consume
    soul. This is not suggested for long levels, since you will need to use a lot
    of soul. Although, this strategy is especially useful for replaying previous
    early levels, trying to level up, or gain attack and defense up items.
    Legion: Thanatos
    Attribute: Ultimate Legion
    Egg: Egg-like creature with wings; uses physical attacks
    Juvenile: Dinosaur like qualities with arms, physical attacks
    Adult: Monsterous form, with obscenely large arms; uses physical attacks
    Perfect: Human-like in form, with giant metallic wings, only 3x the size of
    Sieg. (God-like)
    Lvl 1: Thanatos in Egg Form
    Lvl 2: Thanatos in Juvenile form
    Lvl 3: Thanatos in Adult form
    Lvl 4: Thanatos in Perfect Form
    Assist: The Ignorant Masses
    Lvl 1: Time slows, and Thanatos launches a series of homing energy bullets
    Lvl 2: Longer slow time, and more bullets which cause more damage.
    Lvl 3: Even longer time, a lot of hard hitting bullets.
    Lvl 4: Very long slow time, and the most bullets with the highest strength.
    Lvl 1: Attack bonus
    Lvl 2: Soul Bonus
    Lvl 3: Self Heal (Stand still and wait for health to regenerate)
    Lvl 4: Use Self Health Recovery w/o equipping crest.
    Attack: Max: 8, Spiritual Max: 10
    Defense: Max: 8, Spiritual Max: 10
    **Thanatos is the extreme Legion. He can destroy any type of enemy, and has the
    highest strength out of all the legions. He can single handedly destroy any
    boss, and has the unique ability of appearing behind enemies to launch his
    attack, making him almost impossible to dodge. Of course, his speeed, frequency
    of attack, size, attack, defense, and ignorant masses increase with each Force
    Good Uses for Thanatos:
    a) All bosses
    b) All enmies
    c) What isn't a good use for Thanatos?
    Good combonations for Thanatos:
    **By now you should know that Thanatos is the ultimate killing machine in Chaos
    Legion. There isn't one single Legion that Thanatos isn't a partner with, but
    if you want to read about the best, I suggest scrolling up and reading the
    individual combos listed in some of the other legions combonation lists. You
    can't go wrong with this guy. His assist attack is extremely devastating,
    especially when in large groups of enemies, and his normal attack in Force
    mode, can kill groups (up to and including 10) of enemies in a single attacking
    spree. There is nothing Thanatos can't do, so if you are a hardcore Chaos
    Legionator, I suggest getting every Thanatos piece in the game, and taking the
    time to max him out. It is well worth the rewards, and he is especially helpful
    when fighting the final 3 bosses in Azrail's temple.
    Good Luck!
    I hope this guide is very helpful in learning the in's and out's of this game.
    There is obviously a certain level of personal preference when using these
    techniques. Make your own techniques, and use the legions any way you chose;
    I'm merely trying to help you on your way to becoming a true Legionator.
