Part 36: Quelling a Demons Hatred.
And so here we are, ready to end this final chapter of our story. Lets not waste any more time; Odios waited for us long enough.
There will be three videos for this update. Here is the first.
My name is
Weve heard this part before, but now well do things properly.
I have called each of you here to ask you some very, very important questions.
All anyones ever done is ask for your help. They distance themselves from harm, and rely on others to save them Are such people even deserving of help in the first place? That is my first question.
Why, what is the reason for your fight? Why do you continue?
Li is not the most eloquent lady.
Very well You have all been victorious in your self-important battles Self-important and indeed, selfish!
You are all the same. The same as the maggots that lived in this realm Just like them
The battle begins with a deafening roar
Oersted got one hell of a makeover, didnt he? Theres wings, grapes, flowers and one hell of a mole.
This boss obviously consists of four parts; two Odio Eyes, the Odio Mouth and Odio Mole. The mole takes almost no damage and will counterattack with Revenge Storm if hit, a move that heals all four parts of the boss. So instead were going to focus on the rest of this messed-up face.
The mouth has 1440 HP, and each eyes has 800. Li can put out pretty good damage on them, but theyll still take some effort to put down.
The eyes arent very threatening; they can drain health, attack diagonally with High-Speed Gel Bullet, and counter with Beguiling Eyes if you get right up close on the diagonal.
The mouth is slightly more threatening; Melt Breath is pitiful, but it has a move called Deathber Space that does some fairly random damage. But thats effectively neutered once you realise it can only hit you if youre on the same two rows as the mouth.
Amusingly, its actually Andres Earth-Rending Fury that does both of the eyes in.
Of course, its not going to be that easy. It wouldnt be a JRPG final boss without at least a second form!
Pure Odio is a good deal nastier than his silly face form; he has 2032 HP, but he still has Life Eraser to drain more from your party. His is considerably stronger, doing 100-250 damage depending on who he hits.
He also has this move, the animation of which is rather telling. It even has angelic singing that gets replaced by a hellish shriek when the face changes.
Saint Alicia can do even worse than putting people to sleep though; it will petrify the target if theyre not wearing some of the Ariel equipment. Cube can cure that with High-Speed Op, but its obviously better to avoid the status altogether.
His third and final tech is Cancel Ray, which is basically a giant middle finger directed right at the Waco Kid. He wont always use it if someones charging an attack, but you do need to give him an alternate target.
On the plus side, those who have been diligent about gathering treasure will have two Potion No.9 and four Izanagis Scrolls in their inventory, each of which is a full heal for the whole party. (They also cure being drunk, but not petrified.) Add in the stack of Castellas and similar stuff, and we have plenty of longevity so long as no-one gets attacked at 0 HP.
The recorded version of this fight takes a whole lot longer than it usually would, actually. You see, Hurricane Shot is somewhat random, like Dodegesden. And this time, the Waco Kid kept rolling about 360 damage instead of the full 999. If you get lucky, he can be nearly dead in two shots.
Got there eventually, though.
Apologies to anyone watching the boss fight who wanted to keep their eardrums intact, by the way.
Oersted You deserved better.
If we finish him posted:
I cant stand it! Hes like I was, long ago Gramps Was this the right
Also, that was a suckers choice if I ever saw one.
Oersted has been defeated, so we shall simply go our own way
When we arrive in the room with the stone idols, we hear some monkey sounds before Ayla walks in.
Coop and Sonic soon follow.
But of course (Second video.)
Even if Im beaten Ill keep on living
Time for another villain speech.

I was built to maintain harmony
Therefore, my will is absolute
Nobody will stand in my way
Anyone who tries
will be terminated!

I am not impressed, though. The competition was not exactly stellar.
First was that amateur, Namcat and the Lucha wimp I twisted Tulas joints in ways nature never intended! Then Max, and that fatass, Iaukea And the geezer, whatever his name was. They were weak so they died! Now, you fight me !
You didnt fight them
Namcats ashiwaza Great Asias Lucha Tulas armlocks, Jackies strength Morgans power, Seishis technique! And my anger !

Doesnt matter how many rats you rustle up !
Kung Fu Chapter posted:
WuTangs final technique
A pointless gesture!
And so, we face off against the incarnations of hatred one more time.
Each fight has music from the characters own chapter.
They fight alone against their demonic counterpart.
But our heroes are much stronger than they once were.
What once were fierce battles are now easy victories.
So long as they are not foolish, these old foes pose no threat.
The fights each fade out during the final blow
So that we can see the bosses dissolve, one after another.
Why cant I win !? Isnt this my destiny!?
I used to envy people the way you do! But But thats wrong! Just because you want something doesnt mean youll get it!
Oersted Truly, he is the most sympathetic antagonist I think Ive ever encountered.
That section was the biggest change from choosing your protagonist. Aside from Ayla and Cube, each of them has something to say to Oersted, and he has his own reaction. And I must admit, I wish I could include everyone elses comments here.
But Dont forget
And so Oersted is carried away by the rushing wind
His words still lingering in the air as that wind fades, and silence falls again
Cube turns and burbles at the other heroes before disappearing, the first to return to his own time.
At least I have a place to go home to !
The dawn will always break through the dark of night!
L- L- ! Loooove!
To be the strongest!
Life goes on
And so Its time for the ending of Live-A-Live. Even if you have not watched any other videos in this LP, I really must insist on watching this one.
There are two parts to this ending You will always see the colour returning to the land of Lucretia, even though the people have not returned.
And then a scene from each of the heroes weve met along the way
It looks like Aylas a daddy now!
Although I think Gori has him beat on this one.
As scientists come to examine the rogue Mother Computer, Cube enters and eagerly accepts a hug from Kato.
Some things never change.
Andre closes the blinds in his workout room, finished with training for today.
Coop watches as Toei shows off his teleporter for everybody.
It still isnt quite ready and Watanabe continues to be the butt of every joke.
Sonic is off on another mission as one of the Enma Shinobi

Although things could have gone a different way for him.
And of course, Li has a new generation to instruct in the ways of WuTang Kung Fu.
That would be where things end if you didnt have all seven heroes in the party at least once You would have missed their scenes, and the credits would roll with music from the leaders chapter. But since we got everybody, we get to see the proper ending
The rest of this simply cannot be done justice without seeing it in motion, especially with how the final track is timed. So while I include that track here, not watching the video would be doing yourself a disservice. Heres where the rest of it starts.
Ill let you folks enjoy that But please, remember Oersteds words.
"Don't forget... Anyone can become a King of Demons... As long as hatred still exists, in any world, at any time..."
Credit for these sprites and the Ryomas Offer gif both go to the previous LP.
This is the end of Lets Play Live-A-Live. I hope to see you all again, for whatever comes next
