Part 94: Chapter Sixty Nine: Future PerfectMusic: 23 Nightmare
This is it. The big one. The one weve all been waiting for. All we have to do is step into the teleporter.
We emerge into a cavernous chamber, but theres only one way to proceed.
Music: 21 God of Decadence
: Hmm. This place looks different from the rest of Infinity
: The feeling of evil is palpable. This must be the deepest level.
: Well then, whatre we waiting for? Lets find the Dark God and kick his ass!
: Whatever happens, were with you all the way, partner.
: Thanks guys. Look, theres something up ahead.
: You have done well to come this far, Fated Child or rather Nicanor.
: Once I pass through, I will shower this world with my blessings of destruction.
: Y-you crazy bastard! What the hell are you babbling about?!
: Ah pardon the confusion. I was expecting you would understand. Nicanor is the name of the dead.
: Sealed as you are inside that crystal, your existences are meaningless. Within, you shall suffer for eternity
: Joined with them in death
: I have some strenuous objections to certain points of your doctrine.
: This is the power of the Fated Child?
: Please excuse me while I rearrange your face.
: Do you honestly believe you have the power to challenge me? To challenge God?
: Lin A young woman who could only express herself through combat She found a strength she had never seen before within the Fated Child, and accompanied him on his journeys
: How does it feel to be utterly helpless? I shall return your friends to the dust, one by one, and there is nothing you can do to stop me. This is the difference between your power and mine
: You grrrr
: His fate was intertwined with that of the Fated Child since childhood
: Bosch !!
: Exiled from her own home by an ancient prophecy, she bore no ill will towards the people who cast her out Thinking only for the good of her family, she accepted her banishment, seeking only a place where she could fade away
: Ni na
: He left behind the life he knew in search of adventure. His encounter with the Fated Child changed his life forever.
: Once upon a time he believed that everything in the world had a logical, rational explanation. But his encounter with the Fated Child changed his perceptions. He began to see that courage and will could change the world in ways that knowledge alone cannot.
: He lived his life running away from who he was and what he was meant to do But in the Fated Child, he saw the courage to challenge destiny, and learned to confront his past.
: Foolish and irresponsible, but with a noble heart he believed he could make the world a better place
: Once upon a time she brought ruin upon our Mother, the Goddess Myria She saw something of a hero she knew long ago in the Fated Child, and befriended him
--End of Alternative Scenes--
: Your pitiful lives they break so easily in the hands of God. Hero? Fated Child? Whatever others may call you, you are but an ant caught beneath a tidal wave I will go forth and lay waste to everything you hold dear
The player is given limited control and must mash the directional buttons to break free from Deathevans hold.
: Your impudence upsets me greatly, Ryu
: ill you
: GONNA KILL YOU!!!
Music: Face Your Destiny
Ryu enters the battle screen and begins to run forwards.
Deathevan tries to blast Ryu with a chain of explosions, but Ryu just shrugs them off without even slowing down.
: H how? How could I lose to an insect such as you?
: And that is that
For a moment, everything is silent. Then an ominous rumble begins
Music: 29 Dramatic Battle
Its Ryu alone against the true form of the Dark God.
Deathevan will use an attack called Explode every turn that halves Ryus current HP. It can never actually kill him, though, and Ryu cant kill Deathevan either.
What you can do is open the Special menu and scroll down. The time has finally come to use Infinity, the ultimate power, the only thing capable of defeating Deathevan.
What happens next really cant be summed up well in screenshots, so I didnt take any. I made this video instead, which is pretty much required watching for this next section. Apologies to those who dont like them, but I really feel its the better way of showing what happens next.
: Hold up, partner! Let us get in on the action too!
: What he said! You cant just hog all the glory just for yourself!
: Our bonds cannot be sundered by something as simple as death.

: God? Pah, I didnt vote for ya.
: If youre going to kill and kill, why not start with yourself!
: How pitiful. All that power and in the end, the Dark God turns out to be nothing more than a spiteful child.
: Id say something, but my friends have used up all the words. I guess the only thing I have to tell you is goodbye. Farewell, Deathevan.
Music: 24 Final Battle
The big man himself finally takes the stage for real. As final bosses go, Deathevan lives up to the hype. His basic physical attack deals over 100 damage, up to 170+ damage on weaker characters. Hes so fast only Lin can act before he does. He has twice as much HP as Barbaroi. He can cast Death to instantly kill one of your party members. He has a special version of Ice breath that deals 80 100 damage to all party members. Apart from the basic things, he also has a number of special attacks he likes to use from time to time. Deathevan can flip out and use a super-powered Silence spell on the entire party, though it seems to be quite innacurate. He also has a special Drain attack that steals 60 HP and a bunch of AP from every party member and gives it to himself. He loves to spam this during the middle of the fight, so bringing AP restoring items is a must. When the going gets really tough and Deathevan falls into critical HP hell start using an attack called Soulless Laser that deals 120+ unblockable non-elemental damage to the entire team.
The best strategy Ive found is to make sure your healer has a steady supply of AP. AP in general is absolutely key in this fight. Deathevan has a nasty range of party-wide attacks that requires nearly constant casting of Vitalise, and this can be a real problem when Deathevan begins spamming his drain attack. Your spellcasters will inevitably run out of AP, so bringing Nina along is a good idea since she can replenish herself for free. Just chain-cast Valhalla until she runs dry and then use Spirit until she can use it again. Ryu and Lin are the main attackers, with Lin acting as an emergency healer if necessary. With some work and a bit of luck you can win the battle.

Music: You Must Live
: We did it, Ryu! We did it!
: After those crystals closed up around us, I thought I heard your voice The next thing I knew, we were all together again!
: The power of Infinity was our power. The power to fight together against that monster!
: We did it, guys. It took a long, long time but we finally did it.
Music: 27 Breath of Fire
: Okay then! Lets go, everyone!
: Your wings helped us to save this world you loved so much Your strength has inspired me to rise against the curse of these black wings Thank you forever, Mina.
When you leave Deathevans chamber, the last party member in line will have some unique dialogue before following the others out. Depending on how tired I am after finishing up the game I might post their lines in a final bonus update.
The party returns to Dologany, where everyone celebrates Deathevans defeat.
Everyone leaves for the surface, but the Dragon Sage whispers something in Ryus ear after everyone else has gone.
The camera pans over Township, where everyone is waiting for Ryu to return.
Music: 03 Memories (Yua)
: Ya see! Ya see! I told ya you could do it!
: Yes, Lin. Multiple times.
: Theres no need to blush, Ryu. Not after all youve done for us, and for the world. We all think youve earned the title of Hero!
: Oh god, no. Please dont call me that. It sounds so cheesy. The whole Fated Child thing was bad enough.
: Bosch, not you too!
: Lets go home, partner! Everyones waiting for us!
: Dont worry, Im just mentally preparing myself for the inevitable party and group hug. I mean, have you seen Rands arms? Go on ahead Ill catch up with you in a minute.
: Your exemplary actions have granted the Dragonbrood their ancient wish. Yes with Deathevan defeated, the remaining demons have lost their power. We shall continue to watch the world, as always, but thanks to your efforts, the demons will trouble the world no more.
: The prophecy has been fulfilled. The Dark Gods grip on the world has been shattered, and peace will return once again. There is no reason for you to remain here in darkness. Return to the light of the world above return there with your friends. Farewell, Ryu
: Your fate lies elsewhere. It remains to you to follow it.
Music: Township Well
: Deathevan said he would dream of destruction didnt he
: We never killed Deathevan. All we did was set him back a few thousand years. Hes just a shadow again, a malign whisper in the depths of the netherworld. Dammit, were right back where we started!
: Ah, now I understand. I know what must be done. Sorry guys. No matter what you say, doing these heroic things just isnt me. But I guess I could do it just once. Goodbye, everyone. It really was fun
: I wonder where he is? Or what hes doing? Ima go look for him!
Lin runs off. Soon afterwards the air is split by a dragons roar.
Music: 26 Unknown
: The hell? Someone tell me what this is!
: Come on! You cant leave us like this!
: That big blue monster wont hurt anybody ever again! Why do you have to make everybody cry, ya big dummy?
And so Ryu slept, guarding the gates of the netherworld just as his mother did.
Ryu and his friends made a brave stand against the Dark God, Deathevan, and defeated him
But that was not the end of the story.
Deep inside, Ryu knew that even though he had sundered the form of Deathevan, his wicked spirit lingered.
If left to fester beneath the earth, his evil would emerge once again to cover the world in pain and darkness
Ryu followed the Dragons heart that beat within him and chose to watch over the gate
Even in his deep slumber, Ryu heard his friends begging for him to return.
Perhaps far in the future in the eyes of their descendants.
