Part 135: Episode CXXX: You're Tearing Me ApartEpisode CXXX: Youre Tearing Me Apart
Query: Why do the androids Devola and Popola seem to prefer death over surviving alone? There was a very high probability that at least one could have escaped.
I hope you never have to understand.
Query: Why does this Tower possess an entrance at all? All material transport takes place via aerial vehicles. It is irrational for an infiltration route to be so easily accessible.
<exiting elevator> I dont care. I just have to kill them all.
New Music: The Tower (You should listen to this. Its the final dungeon theme.)
So... welcome to the interior of The Tower.
If you were expecting more futuristic industrial structures that wouldnt look out of place in a Doom level, youd be mistaken. Instead, were getting the Copied City put into an abstract surrealism blender. Its very ethereal JRPG final dungeon...
Guarding the Towers walkways are a few surviving corrupted YoRHa soldiers. Its not like everyone who was in YoRHa were with 9S and 2B when they exploded or in the Bunker when it err... also exploded. Regardless, at this point theyre barely a threat since none of them have bothered leveling up since those two earlier incidents.
Before 9S continues his warpath, theres an easy to miss locked chest just to his right after the first two YoRHa troops attack him. A quick hack later and we get...
The Original is referring to the actual human Papa Nier/The Shadowlord. The Hamelin Organization was basically Umbrella Incorporated tasked with handling the salt monster Legion apocalypse in the original NieRs backstory. They did this by doing a bunch a dumb shit with magic they didnt really understand like making super-powered child soldiers or sticking peoples souls in magic books, turning people into giant grinning cartoon skeletons or giving petrification vision to kids and whatnot. They likely also made the original androids to oversee the Plan Z of throwing magic shit at the wall and hoping for the best that was Project Gestalt.
You never go full Umbrella.
Advancing through the halls of the Tower and slaughtering any YoRHa that gets in his way, 9Ss warpath is eventually interrupted by a final Tower System Services announcement.
Were so pleased youve chosen to visit the Tower today! Dont forget about the special prize for the guest who unlocks the last sub-unit in the room just ahead. Youre going to LOVE IT!
Im gonna kill you...
Well get to the killing of whoever is making those announcements eventually 9S. For now, sate your bloodlust on the last few YoRHa stragglers and continue through the gate to your prize!

So whats left that could possibly be used to fuck with 9S at this point? Surely, trotting out his corrupted Operator Mom was the last ace in the whole in the screwwiththeandroidkid.EXE subroutine. Well...
Youd be surprised. Hey, 2B! And 2B... Also 2B.
<looks around> 2B models?
<heavy breathing leading to losing his shit>
<unsettling middle ground between laughing and crying> Im glad I got to see you here. I truly am.
<heavy breath> Ill tear you apart...
Every last one of you!
Music: Grandma (Destruction)
He gazed upon these 2Bs. Three routes it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden under that Emil mask. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved this shit.
Lets party! 9S vs. the YoRHa No.2 Type B Series!
Let the slaughter begin! Pfft... What a debase thing you are thinking **** could only mean fuck. Kill. Stab. Burn. Gank. Those are all four letter words that could fit there too and 9S is way more interested in them at the moment.
The 2B series fights just as poorly as any of the other corrupt YoRHa units weve faced so far and they have even less HP than most of em. After all, the machines probably just cracked open the seal on these stashed spare bodies around the time 9S got on that elevator in the last update.
2B... 2B! Dont worry...
Im going to kill you now!
And kill her he does. All twenty or so 2B copies flooding into the room for 9Ss special prize are quickly put down with little effort. Well, mostly...
Still a few stragglers, huh?
Sure enough, theres one 2B copy thats still squirming on the ground. Thanks for pointing that, Pod...
Wouldnt want any of em getting away.
OK. A job well done. All the 2Bs are now dead like theyre supposed to b
