Part 53: The Final Final BattleSo last time we totally beat up Arfoire.
Yeah, we really beat the crap out of her.
She got back up though, that sort of ruins the effect.
Have to agree.

Haaaah ha ha ha! You see the answer now? I wont let you go.
How? You were defeated
I returned from the realm of death just to give Neptune her precious answer. Be honored!
You didnt hafta do that, geez!
Youd better answer Histys question, too. Howre you still alive? Was that just a phantom earlier?
No, I was definitely crushed. However, the power of faith from my followers helped me to revive!
What?! Who in the human world would have faith in you?!
Many humans do! Its a little different than the followers you get, however.
So thats what the fake Overlord was about!
But thats for the Overlord, right? Its not for you.
The names insignificant. The heretics fear the Overlord and loyally spread monsters around the world.
The worlds end and an absolute ruler Peoples fear acts as faith and becomes my source of power!
Hmm, I see Thats your final answer, huh? I totally forgot about the pretend Overlord until just now
Were not scared of some artificial faith youve forced upon people. Well defeat you over and over and over again!
Fake Overlord plot so dumb Gust had forgotten it as well.
I dont know, I think it was quality villainy.
Video- Arfoire Again
Boss Battle: Arfoire
This time Arfoires a bit stronger and has more health, so shell actually get to attack you and stuff. Thats okay, though, because now Im breaking the game with 5pb On Stage. This has all the animations for everything left in, so enjoy.
I dont know, its so cliché for the final boss to transform.
She went a bit cray-cray, too.
Pointless. Your power is running out. This is your last chance to turn things around.
It is not too late to overwrite your wound.
Haaaah ha ha ha! How naïve. My only wish is to destroy this wretched Gamindustri and absorb your powers!
Your charity is not appreciated, so shut up!
Arfoire, youve been doin this to change yourself, right?
You can do it with your own power instead of resorting to the tome. Its prolly a lot easier that way.
Perhaps my initial motive was to become the True Goddess However, that is not longer the case!
Ive awakened to my true inner evil! Oh my dear, how satisfying to have control!
Ill keep fulfilling my selfish desires! It is certainly more pleasing this way! Haah ha ha Haaaah ha ha ha!
Shes acting like a funky chicken. Is she going all crazy?
People dont actually say that Neptune.
Oh, really? Whoops.
Normal folk call that karma. Are we just gonna leave her? She kinda looks like shes in pain.
I dont think youve ever sympathized with a villain before.
Hah ha ha Ghh! Grrrngh?! Haa ?
Heh Hahaha I can feel the overflowing power coursing through me! Histoire, you are worthless to me now!
I am born again Watch closely! My final form, which surpasses all goddesses!
The almighty, complete form of a true CPU!
You mean a dragon? Yep, youre a dragon. That doesnt look anything like a pretty, perfect goddess. You wanted this?
You dont have to understand. Just know this is my true power!
Seriously though she turned into a dragon.
Has that ever turned out well for anyone?
Hold on, let me check my records. Ill have your answer in-
Three days, we know, youre very slow.

FINAL BOSS: True Arfoire
True Arfoire is actually pretty hard. She hits like a train and has a ton of health. That said, its still just a matter of slowly dragging her down while making sure you always end up with people on Defense. Use 5pb on Stage and Compas Switch First Aid Kit and Revive Kit to deal with any healing you need to do (you will, as I noted she hits really damn hard).
Well, it certainly didnt work well for her.
Drat. When she turned into the dragon, I thought she was gonna offer me half the world or something.
I dont think shed say that when her goal was to destroy the world.
I mean, would you really have accepted if she said that? I think thats a game over.
Of course not. Not in front of everyone else, anyway. Youre way scarier than Arfoire!
Nep-Nep and Iffy We shouldnt let down our guard. We dont know if shes really gone or not.
My grandpa always said, What appears twice, appears a third time!
That dragon was the third. I really dont think that saying means anything. You sure you memorized it right?
Compa is correct, though. Most of your powers are drained.
Another fight would be kinda rough. Itd be great if we could find out whether or not Arfoires done for.
There is a way, but it may take about three days.
That again? Cant you, like, feel the change within yourself? Ugh, whatever. Ill look for you, so can you transform?
Please be gentle with me.
Because It would be very bad if you stain it, smudge the writing, tear a page, drool
Well just fight her if she comes back again.
Obviously, justice will always prevail!
Its fine. Dont worry! Well keep training so well always be stronger!
How determined. Youre so dependable, Iffy. I suppose I can stop worrying, now.
No matter when Arfoire returns, or how many monsters exist out there Iffy is going to take care of it all!
What?! Dont make it sound like Im gonna do everything. Were a party, so we do it together!
Save it for a rainy day! Its best to prepare in case Arfoire comes back in the future.
Thatll only make me restless.
If I was all prepared and then nothing happened, Id always be worried. Only the ones worried should get prepared.
Thats not true! Its something my grandpa said and hes always right!
Think of it like this. You leave your umbrella at work in case it rains. What if it rains while youre at home?
Th-Then Id feel silly for wasting my time worrying but!
What if it was snow and hail and cats and dogs and fire and meteorites at the same time?
Th-Then I wouldnt go outside
I-Im sorry, but Im getting a little hungry.
I thought Id hear Nep say that before anyone else. Should we get going?
Are there other buildings or popular tourist spots in Celestia? I want to take this chance to see them all!
Hmm Any place we can eat? Its strange, though. We shouldnt really get hungry in Celestia.
That only applies to goddesses. They do not get sick, nor do they age while in Celestia.
Thats crazy. If there were a land in Celestia, the CPU presiding over that place would be the most important one.
So, are we done yet?
No. Next Time on Hyperdimension Neptunia: The End of An Era. Our story comes to a close!
