Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2

Part 90: Feinne's Notes: Al Kaidder

Unkillable: You Can Call Me Al Part Six- B-B-B-Benny and the Jets, Reprise

So now we're fighting Benetnasch/Alkaid for realsies (they're both names for the same star, and come from different parts of a larger phrase that describes which star in the big dipper it actually is in Arabic). Yeah so this map is a joke. Benetnasch himself is a joke before the split and the Alkaid Spawn are even more laughable, tending to die in a single skirmish and lacking range. I really like the idea of this fight and the designs of the Alkaid Spawn, but they're all just so weak that you'd have to do something REALLY dumb to get someone killed here, and Trumpeter might as well be in a hermetically sealed panic room because nothing's getting to him even with a Benetnasch bud air drop.

So, it's not going to be a problem in this path, but there is one more thing to consider after we defeat the seventh of the Septentriones in most endings: Though this isn't apparent with the naked eye, there is an eighth star in the Ursa Majoris.
