©2003 TUSPM FAQ. Reproduction is prohibited by law. Contact author before posting on any website. If you're stuck on a boss fight, this is the FAQ for you! To know where you can confront the bosses, I've included the day you can find them and the location. The location is mentioned between the *. You should also know that the numbers between the ( ) is the stage number the boss is at. That number does NOT tell you how many of those creatures you'll encounter. PLEASE NOTE THAT... - This is for boss battles ONLY; it won't include the normal, regular fights Instead of scrolling through this entire FAQ to find a certain fight, you can now search for the monster! Just press CTRL+F and type in the monster's name. Don't know it? Then type in the Day number it appears in OR the place it can be encountered. August 2006: I did a major revision to this FAQ. I updated strategies and HP counts. Not only that, I also fixed spelling errors and I put in fights for the Ex Game! Hope you enjoy the new revision! Okay, lets begin! ----- DAY 1| ----- BOSS BATTLE 1: Actress *Carnegie Hall* HP: 40 The very first fight is a boss fight! The Actress only real purpose is to show you the battle system used in Parasite Eve. She has only one attack: an energy beam she fires every few seconds. This can simply be avoided if you dont stay in one spot for too long. Constantly move and only attack right after the Actress fires her beam. After you shoot the Actress once, you will be introduced to your first Parasite Energy (PE). It is called Heal 1. It heals 30 HP and you can use it anytime, in combat or not. When you use a PE, your PE bar (the green bar below your HP amount) will decrease. For more information, I suggest you pause the game and look in the games instructions manual. If you dont have yours, look around on various websites. The only purpose of this FAQ is to give you strategies on how to defeat bosses. If you want to conserve your ammo (because right now it is limited), you can use your club. After a few shots, the Actress will reveal her identity and the battle will end. BOSS BATTLE 2: Eve (1) *Carnegie Hall* HP: 100 Eve is tougher this time but if youre at level 4 or 5, youll be fine. Your M84F handgun (the gun you started with) will work but I highly recommend the P220 (you can get it in the closet in one of the storage rooms). Eve has 2 attacks now: her claw attack and her double beam. Eve wont use the claw attack if youre far away from her so dont get too close. Her double beam is a little bit tougher to dodge. Not only can she shoot 2 beams but she can sweep them across the room. Do not panic, however, she does sweep them rather slowly and at times she may not sweep them at all so that should ease the pain a little bit. To dodge the beams, youll want to stand in between the 2 beams. If Eve sweeps them, slowly walk in the direction shes sweeping them. Only attack after Eve has finished with her beam attack because if you get caught standing in one place for too long, you could pay the ultimate price. Win the battle and chase Eve into the sewers. BOSS BATTLE 3: Alligator (1) *Carnegie Hall Sewers* HP: 120 (Body), 80 (Tail) Unlike the previous bosses, the Alligator is made up of 2 targets: the body and the tail. When the battle begins, concentrate on the tail. You shouldve picked up the M1911A1 handgun in the chest next to the left set of stairs a few rooms back. One of the most important things to succeeding in Parasite Eve is to constantly upgrade your equipment. As the game goes on youll find more ways to upgrade your weapons and armor. But theres no time for this jibber-jabber now. Youve got a boss to kill. During the first stage, the Alligator has 2 attacks: his claw attack and the tail whip/boomerang. Like the first version of Eve, the claw attack only happens if you get too close to the Alligator. Stay far away and you wont have to worry about it. The tail whip and boomerang attack is somewhat difficult to dodge. At times, the Alligator will use his tail as whip, which can be dodged if youre not in front of him and youre not too close to him. However, after the whip, a series of boomerangs will come towards Aya. The best thing you can do is try to get in between 2 boomerangs so the will pass by harmlessly. After causing enough damage, the camera view will change and so will the Alligators strategy. Now that the tail is dead, you can shoot the body now. The good news is that the Alligator will no longer use the tail whip and boomerang attacks. But to compensate for that, he has a fire breath attack, which he shoots 3 streams of fire at Aya. However, this is much simpler to dodge than the boomerang attack. Dont get too close to the Alligator and always run. If you get caught in one place for too long, youll increase your chances of getting hit. Successfully kill the Alligator and youll move on to Day 2! ----- DAY 2| ----- BOSS BATTLE 4: Giant Worms (1-4) *Central Park* HP: 125 (4 worms), 150 (3 worms), 175 (2 worms), 200 (1 worm) If youre confused by the HP count above, Ill quickly explain it to you. At the beginning of the battle there are 4 worms. All of those worms have 125 HP. But when you eliminate one, the 3 remaining worms HP will increase to 150. Eliminate one of the 3 remaining worms and the other worms HP will increase to 175 and so on. Get it? If youre a bit worried about the HP increase, dont worry. The M16A1 rifle is your best bet for this battle (Torres shouldve given you this gun back at the Precinct). At the beginning, the worms are relatively harmless and somewhat lazy. They may or may not attack. Their only attack right now is using their spike balls. When they release a spike ball, itll explode and several spikes will fly out in different directions. However, at the beginning of the battle, you dont need to worry about the spike balls. You can easily dodge them by moving constantly. You could also try to move behind the worm that shot the ball at you. When you eliminate one worm, the others will grow in length and in HP. They dont have any additional attacks but the spike balls not only release more spikes when they explode, they also cause more damage. If youre trying to dodge more than 1 spike ball, you may have some difficulty. Again, the best thing you can do is try moving all over the place. Quickly eliminate another worm. When there are only 2 left, their HP amounts will now increase to 175. Again, no additional attacks but the spike balls will cause more damage. Quickly eliminate another worm. When youre down to the final worm, not only will its HP amount shoot up to 200 but it also gains 2 different attacks: body sweep and body slam, in addition to the spike balls, which causes more damage than ever, however, youll be pleased to know that the worm will now rarely use the spike ball attack. For the final worm, it will always pop up in the bottom part of the screen. To dodge the body slam attack, constantly run and try not to get caught in the corners. As for the body sweep, theres only one way to dodge it: go to the upper left hand corner and stay there. If you go down to attack the worm and he uses the body sweep, you WILL get hit. Make a mental note of this and made sure you have a decent amount of HP so you dont end up dying. Eliminate the last worm and continue east, where youll find Eve and shell offer you to take you on a carriage ride. BOSS BATTLE 5: Eve (2) *Central Park* HP: 320 This battle is tricky, but only because youre in a carriage and have so little room to run. Eve has 2 attacks: claw and the bomb attack. In the previous battle with Eve (at Carnegie Hall); she would only use the claw attack if you were close enough. Well, guess what? In this battle, no matter where you are in the carriage, youre ALWAYS close enough! The claw is difficult to dodge and youll probably be relying on luck in order to dodge it. Made sure your HP is high at all times. Eves second attack is her bomb attack. Occasionally, shell fly off screen and drop a massive energy bomb at Aya. The only real way to dodge this is to get in the opposite corner of the impact point. Do not get out of your corner until the bomb has completely disappeared and Eve is back on the screen. When you successfully deplete all of Eves 320 HP, youll enjoy a nice, long cut scene and a couple of FMVs! ----- DAY 3| ----- BOSS BATTLE 6: Mutated Sheeva *NYPD 17th Precinct* HP: 400 (Center Head), 200 (Left Head), 300 (Right Head) Sheeva has three targets: her left head, center head and her right head. I recommend getting rid of the center head (target 1) first because thats what heals the other heads for 100 HP. If your ammo is limited, finish it off quickly. You can dispose of the other two at your own discretion. Sheeva has a series of attacks and most of them are difficult to dodge. Her gnawing attack is easy. Just dont get too close to her and constantly move but dont get stuck in corners. Her energy beam is somewhat easy. Dont stay in one place for too long and stay out of corners. If you do that, you should dodge the beam, despite how fast it travels across the room. Sheeva also has one attack that is unavoidable. Her growling attack cannot be dodged no matter what and will cause around 80-100 points of damage. However, you can use PE Barrier to reduce damage or completely nullify it. ----- DAY 4| ----- BOSS BATTLE 7: Giant Spider (1) *St. Francis Hospital* HP: 450 (Stage 1), 400 (Stage 2) There are 2 stages to this fight. During the first stage, the spider has 450 HP. The spider has a series of attacks that if you ignore, youll end up dead. The first and most common attack is the web attack. Here, the spider will shoot 3 large webs on the roof. If you get caught in one of the webs, you wont be able to move for a while. While youre there struggling to break free, the spider then has the opportunity to damage you with its other attacks. The arm attack is extremely easy to dodge (as long as youre not stuck to a web). Just keep your distance from the spider. The flame attack is a bit harder to dodge. The only thing you can really do is run from side to side and hope it passes behind Aya. I recommend a rifle for this stage because it has such good range and you could probably hit the spider over the webs. After inflicting enough damage, the spider will run off and Aya will chase after it. During the second stage, the spider has 400 HP. You may have noticed that theres not as much room as there was during the first stage. Because of this, dodging attacks is going to be a bit tougher but it also means that you can switch to a handgun, which is faster at shooting and reloading than a rifle. At the beginning of the second stage, youll appear right in front of the spider and because of that, itll try to hit you with one of its arms but simply avoid this by running away. Because of the limited space, dodging the web attack and the fireball attack is going to be tough. The best you can probably do is cast Haste and hope that you dont land in one of the webs. With Haste, you should be able to dodge the fireball attack fairly easily. Depleting the spiders 400 HP will end the battle. ----- DAY 5| ----- OPTIONAL BOSS BATTLE 8: Alligator (2) *Chinatown Sewers* HP: 215 (each) Day 5 has the most bosses than any other day and let me tell you ahead of time that theyre not going to be easy. For now, lets focus on the Alligators. This is an optional boss that you can encounter in the Chinatown Sewers. After you encounter the slime from Central Park, go right at the T-intersection and climb down the ladder. This is where youll encounter this boss. There are 2 Alligators with one target each. They each have three attacks: claw, tail whip/boomerang and fire breath. They will not perform the claw attack if youre far away from them so no need to worry. The tail whip/boomerang attack is nothing different but dodging the attack from both enemies can get a bit tough. Try to eliminate one Alligator as quickly as you can. The fire breath is a bit different than last time. Instead of shooting three streams of fire, itll only shoot one but the fire stream could then explode and divide into several fireballs which can easily hit Aya and cause up to 200 points of damage. The best thing you can do is when an Alligator shoots a fire stream, run towards the Alligator as quickly as you can and you should be alright. BOSS BATTLE 9: Centipede (1) *Subway* HP: 500 (Head), 120 (Middle), 120 (Middle), 180 (Tail) The Centipede is somewhat easy at first but things get difficult as the battle goes on. The Centipede has 3 attacks. If you stay at its side, youll be able to dodge 2 out of the 3 attacks (lightning bolt and bite). However, you still need to worry about the poison attack. At any moment, the Centipede can spit poisonous balls from its mouth. The only real way to dodge this is to run in out in front of the Centipede and to keep your eyes open. Using Haste might work a little better though. After inflicting enough damage, the Centipede will split into 4 parts, all circling the screen. After circling the screen for a few seconds, they will all, one-by-one, bite Aya. The bites cause around 70-100 points of damage each. I suggest you get rid of the head first because that is the most dangerous. Not only does its bite attack cause a lot of damage, but it poisons you as well. When you eliminate a part, try to run to the empty space so the other parts will have a hard time biting you. OPTIONAL BOSS BATTLE 10: Crab (1) *Warehouse* HP: 856 (Head), 420 (Right Claw), 420 (Left Claw) This is an optional boss but if you defeat it, youll get the AT4 rocket launcher, a powerful weapon. I recommend you clear the warehouse not for the rocket launcher but to build up your stats. Trust me! Youll need to be strong and skillful when you fight Eve later on. The Crab has 4 attacks: claw attack, laser eye attack, bubble attack and the grab attack. He also has 3 targets: left and right claw and his head. The claw and bubble attacks are easy to dodge if you stay on one of the Crabs sides. The laser eye attack is very hard to dodge. When the Crabs eyestalks pop up, immediately run in front of the Crab and continue running. Do not get stuck in corners. If you do get hit, youll get a good pounding on your HP. You could also try to use Haste for a better chance of dodging the attack. The Crabs last attack is rarely performed. So rare in fact that many are unaware of it, but its there and it still poses a danger. If youre in front of the Crab and youre very close, the Crab may grab you and zap you for all of your HP except 1 point. If this happens, youll want to use a Medicine 3 or 4 quickly. Full Recover will work the best but you probably dont have any in your inventory at the moment. When you eliminate the claws, the Crab wont be able to do the claw attack or grab attack. But the bubble and laser attack still exist. Like I said, stay to the Crabs side and youll be able to avoid the bubble attack and try your absolute best to dodge the laser attack. Winning the battle will get you the AT4 rocket launcher. BOSS BATTLE 11: Triceratops (1) *Museum* HP: 750 (Head), 900 (Body) The Triceratops has only 2 attacks: ramming attack and his lightning bolt attack. The lightning bolt is easy to dodge if you stay to the side of its head. It should pass by harmlessly. The ramming attack is a problem. Its very difficult to dodge and it causes a lot of damage. If youve got skills and reflexes, you may be able to dodge it but its much easier using Haste. You should also know that at first, the Triceratops will try to ram Aya only once but as you cause more damage, itll try to ram her more and more times. When youve inflicted enough damage, the head will disappear and the Triceratops speed will increase. This means that the Triceratops will no longer be able to ram at Aya. However, the lightning bolt attack still exists but you can easily dodge that by staying at the side of the Triceratops neck. BOSS BATTLE 12: T-Rex *Museum* HP: 2,400 The T-Rex is powerful but if you follow my instructions carefully, you should be fine. The T-Rex has 3 attacks: flame attack, laser attack and his stomp attack. Your biggest concern is the flame attack, which can hit Aya several times and cause as much as 150 points of damage per hit. To dodge the flame attack, go DIRECTLY BEHIND the T-Rex. This is the best way to dodge the attack. If you get too close, youll end up loosing 10 HP. But with the level youre at right now, who cares? The laser attack happens later in the battle. It is relatively easy to dodge. The T-Rex will charge up a laser beam from its tail and shoot 2 beams at you. If you keep moving, only one beam should hit you. Maybe none if youre lucky. If you use Haste, youll have a better chance of dodging the beam, which does about 100 points of damage if only one beam hits you. The T-Rexs last attack is the stomp attack, which he will not perform if Aya is far away from him. So keep your distance and you wont have to worry about the T-Rex squishing you like a bug. BOSS BATTLE 13: Eve (3) *Statue of Liberty* HP: 1,600 (Bottom Target), 1,750 (Middle Target), 1,900 (Top Target) The next 2 boss fights of Day 5 will not be easy. If this is your first time playing Parasite Eve, youll probably die here 1-2 times before getting the hang of things. Before you go up to fight Eve, you should do the following: 1. Use your Bonus Points to increase your active time, item capacity and increase your weapon/armor stats. 2. Heal yourself if your HP is low. 3. Have your best armor and weapon equipped (reload your weapon if you need to). 4. Have your second best armor and weapon available as backup. 5. Anything else you can think of. Once youve done those 5 things, go up to Eve and they will have a brief conversation. After a few minutes, the battle will begin. You should always keep a lot of distance between Aya and Eve. Eve has a lot of long-range attacks but they wont do as much damage as her short-range attacks. Eve has 3 targets: the top, middle and bottom. If you have a weapon with a burst effect on it, thats perfect for this battle. With the burst effect, you can hit all 3 parts while targeting only one. The Command x2 effect will also come in handy. With that, you can perform 2 actions in one turn. If you do not have any of these effects, youll have a much harder time fighting Eve. Eves short-range attacks are devastating and cause a lot more damage than her long-range attacks, as I said previously. She can grab Aya and hit her several times, causing 170 points of damager per hit. She may even hit her once for all of her HP except 1 point. To dodge the grab attack, do not get stuck in corners and constantly move. Keep your distance and you should be fine. You should also use that tactic for when Eve tries to hit Aya, which generally doesnt do as much damage as her grab attack. In general, youll want to keep moving from side-to-side to avoid Eves short-range attacks. Eves long-range attacks arent as easy to dodge but cause less damage than her short-range attacks. Eves common long-range attack is shooting energy balls in short, long, short, long intervals. They typically cause around 70 points of damage. If you keep moving and circle the screen, you should be able to dodge them. Eve can also shoot energy needles from her fingers. This attack is tough to dodge and can hit Aya several times. The best you can do is keep a lot of distance between Aya and Eve and run behind Eve. But dont get stuck behind Eve for too long because she also has an attack that in which she uses her back. From time-to-time, Eve will shower the area with energy from her back. The best you can do is run as far away as humanly possible from Eve and hope the energy bolts miss. When you kill off all of Eves targets, shell evolve into Eve (4), which means youll be back to square one! BOSS BATTLE 14: Eve (4) *Statue of Liberty* HP: 2,200 Eves HP amount is significantly lower, making this battle a little easier but to make up for the lower HP, Eve has attacks that are very difficult to dodge. She also flies around the screen so quickly that you might have a difficult time shooting her. I recommend a rifle because it has such good range and Eve will have a tougher time getting out of your targeting dome. Eves attacks are very hard to dodge. She can hit Aya, which not only does damage but it also poisons her. You may have a difficult time dodging this attack because its so fast. Haste could make things a little easier. You should also use PE Detox or Cure-P to neutralize the poison if you get hit. Eve also has another attack that cannot be avoided. Shell sometimes stop Aya dead in her tracks and not only damage her but paralyze her. At times, shell only paralyze Aya in which her speed and AT bar are slowed. Other times, shell paralyze Aya in which she cannot move at all. Both effects are harmful and you should use PE Medic or Cure-M to remove the effect. Eves final and deadly attack is her energy javelin. Occasionally, shell fly off screen and the camera will show a close-up of her as she fires her javelin. The javelins range is extremely high and can cover most of the area. Do not panic, however. It is possible to dodge the javelin. The important thing you should remember is that even though the camera shows a close-up of Eve, you still have control of Aya. When the camera does show a close-up of Eve, immediately run to the opposite corner. Now you cant run if Aya is busy shooting so limit your shots to 2 per turn. You should also make a mental note that the javelin is area damage. Simply put, the closer you are to the impact point, the more damage you take. If youre directly at the impact point, youll take a good loss of 400+ HP plus Defense Down. One of Eves strategies includes paralyzing Aya and then shooting her javelin. This shows how important it is to immediately cure yourself of negative effects. Another strategy you can use is using PE Liberate. This will cause over 1,000 points of damage to Eve. But it will deplete all of your PE. But its still worth the risk. Afterwards, youll only need to hit Eve a few more times to end the battle. ----- DAY 6| ----- BOSS BATTLE 15: Ultimate Being (1) *Cruiser* HP: 1,500 This is the baby Being. Its not that hard. Most of the time, the Being will follow Aya and try to attack her with its Cry Beam. This is when the Being lowers its head and releases a beam. If you have a lot of distance between you and the Being, you should be fine. Otherwise, prepare to lose a good 100+ HP. The Beings second attack cannot be dodged and zaps Aya for all of her HP except 1 point. Use Medicine 4 or a Full Recover quickly and Aya will be as good as new! BOSS BATTLE 16: Ultimate Being (2) *Cruiser* HP: 1,500 (Stage 1), 1,500 (Stage 2 Body), 950 (Stage 2 Wings) There are 2 targets on this Being: the head and the wings. A burst effect will work great here. During the first stage, the Ultimate Being has 2 attacks: the lightning ball attack and the lightning sweep. The lightning ball attack is easy to dodge if you just keep moving from side-to-side. The lightning sweep can be dodged if you go under the Ultimate Being. Once youve inflicted enough damage, the Ultimate Being will split into 2. You should focus on destroying the body because the wings will die when the body dies. Dodging the attacks from both enemies is really tough. Youll probably be relying mostly on luck for dodging the attacks. You could also use Liberate to try to severely damage the 2 parts. BOSS BATTLE 17: Ultimate Being (3) *Cruiser* HP: 3,500 This is the real challenge. The mature Being can deliver a series of deadly attacks. Keep a close eye on your HP and heal Aya when she needs it or you could be looking at a Game Over screen really soon. The Ultimate Being now has a full arsenal of attacks. Its most common is a 2-hit combo that causes around 75 points of damage per hit. It can be dodged by constantly running and not getting close to the Ultimate Being. Haste will work well, too. In fact, youll probably be using Haste a lot in this battle. Another one of the Beings attack is when it hops in any one of the four corners and shoots a stream of pink energy at Aya from its tail. It can hit Aya twice and cause as much as 120 points of damager per hit. Therefore, you must always be casting Haste and when the Being jumps in a corner, quickly run underneath it to dodge the attack. The Being also has 2 attacks that are very difficult to dodge. One attack halves Ayas HP and the other zaps all of her HP except 1 point. To dodge the attack that halves Ayas HP, you must get as far away from the Ultimate Being as humanly, physically possible. The upper left hand corner will probably work the best. The attack that zaps Aya for all but 1 HP point is incredibly hard to dodge. What the Being will do is grab Aya and zap her. The grab is so incredibly fast that your chances of dodging it are probably slim to none. Using Haste wont do much. BOSS BATTLE 18: Ultimate Being (4) *Cruiser* HP: 8,000 You may think this battle will be hard. Dont worry. This battle is cake. The Being has one attack: a laser which does about 85 points of damage. You may want to cast Barrier because 85 points of damage can add up quickly. When you first fire at the being youll notice that it wont take any more than 1-2 points of damage. Thisll happen no matter what weapon you use. But do not worry. Things will get a lot easier in a moment. After causing about 23 points of damage to the being, a cut scene will appear. Daniel will then deliver special ammunition to Aya. After the cut scene, youll automatically be equipped with Maedas Gun and the new ammunition. Recast Barrier and shoot the Ultimate Being for 999 of its HP. AFTER THE FIGHT: The Being is still alive and you need to find a way to destroy the ship! Follow my instructions carefully! If you make just one little screw-up, the Being will eat Aya and it'll be Game Over, which means, you'll have to do the entire fight over again! BE SURE YOU RUN FROM ROOM-TO-ROOM! There are 12 simple instructions: 1. Run west to the door, the same one you entered earlier. 2. After viewing the map, Aya will come to the revelation that she must go to the Engine Room. Her first step is to head through the door to the left, which the Navy Officer was blocking earlier. 3. Go to the north and turn west at the intersection. 4. Run up the hall and take a right through the first door. 5. Run down the stairs and into the door at the bottom. 6. Go to the east and head north at the intersection. Climb down the ladder to reach the Engine Room. 7. Quickly search the control panel just below where Aya enters the room! 8. Once things are ready to blow, head to the south over the pipes and then climb the ladder that's a bit to the west. 9. Head to the south and pass through the door. 10. Continue to the south, and then pass through the door in the west hall. 11. Quickly run up the stairs and through the door at the top. 12. Sprint down the hall to the west and through the exit. YOU'VE WON!!!! Congratulations! You've beat Parasite Eve! Sit back and enjoy the ending. ----- SPECIAL NOTE| ----- In order to access the EX Game, youll have to wait for the credits to end and youll receive 3,000 bonus points for beating the game. It will then ask you to save. This will save as CLEAR DATA and will unlock the EX Game option at the main menu. Load the CLEAR DATA file and youll gain access to a new building: the Chrysler Building. ----- EX GAME| ----- EX GAME BOSS BATTLE 1: Giant Spider (2) *Chrysler Building Floor 10* HP: 1,000 If youve completed most of the game before tackling the Chrysler Building, good strategy! The Giant Spider is back and youll want to fight it similar to the way you fought it in the second stage on the hospital roof. Because theres so little room to evade attacks, the web and fire attack could be a problem but if you have a high weapon attack and high defense on your armor, this battle should end quickly. Defeating the spider will get you Chrysler Key 1. This enables you to travel through floors 1-10 on the elevator. EX GAME BOSS BATTLE 2: Alligator (3) *Chrysler Building Floor 20* HP: 1,100 (each) Another recycled boss! This boss is very similar to the encounter you had with the Alligators in the Chinatown Sewer. Eliminate one of the Alligators to make dodging attacks easier. Having armor with a high defense is important, because the fire breath attack causes more damage than ever but this boss shouldnt give you any major problems. Defeat both Alligators and you will receive Chrysler Key 2. This enables you to travel through floors 1-20 on the elevator. EX GAME BOSS BATTLE 3: Centipede (2) *Chrysler Building Floor 30* HP: 1,200 (Head), 600 (Middle), 600 (Middle), 800 (Tail) The Centipedes speed has increased somewhat since your last encounter with it at the Subway. During the first stage, the Centipede can turn its body quicker and attack quicker so you may find it hard to keep at its side. Use Haste to make things go a bit smoother. When the Centipede splits into four parts, eliminate the head quickly to avoid getting poisoned. You may be using quite a bit of Medicines here because the biting attacks cause more damage. When you eliminate a part, take its spot so the other parts have a tougher time hitting you. Defeating the Centipede will get you Chrysler Key 3. This enables you to travel through floors 1-30 on the elevator. EX GAME BOSS BATTLE 4: Triceratops (2) *Chrysler Building Floor 40* HP: 1,600 (Head), 1,600 (Body) Yet another recycled boss. Because theres not too much room to dodge attacks, you may have trouble with the ramming attack. Using Haste will help you in this battle. The lightning attack is no different. Stick to either the left or right side of the Triceratops head and it should pass by. When the head is eliminated, you dont have to use Haste anymore because the boss cant perform the ramming attack anymore. Try your best to stick to the side of the Triceratops head and you should defeat him in no time. Defeating the Triceratops will get you Chrysler Key 4. This enables you to travel through floors 1-40 on the elevator. ----- WARNING!| ----- Just so you know things will get tougher from floors 41 all the way up to the final floors. I recommend you have a weapon with an attack of at least 350 and armor with a defense of at least 200. You should also be at level 34 or 35 at this point. If you dont meet all 3 recommendations, I suggest you hunt for enemies outside of the Chrysler Building to increase your level and your stats. But if youre confident and you think you have the skills, go ahead and continue to climb but dont say I didnt warn you. Oh and FYI, now would be a very good time to stock up on Medicine 4s, Revives, Full Cures, Full Recovers and Cure items. EX GAME BOSS BATTLE 5: Cockroach *Chrysler Building Floor 50* HP: 4,200 (Main Roach), 1,200 (Larva) This is a new boss that you havent seen before and let me tell you that the Cockroach isnt going to be messing around. The Cockroach is a fast little creature so you may want to use Haste but you may be able to deal without. Stay away from the roachs antennae and you should be alright when it performs its antennae whip attack. But if thats all this boss had, itd be way too easy. When the bug starts shaking, it means its giving birth and youll be able to see the larva slip out the roachs backside. At this point, the main roach becomes a flying roach and gains a new attack: a poison bomb thats relatively easy to dodge if you keep moving. When you see the larva, eliminate it quickly because if it gets to be full-grown, itll have stats similar to its mother and itll be able to attack you with its antennae. Eliminate the offspring quickly while it still has only 1,200 HP. To eliminate both enemies, you should eliminate both of them around the same time. If you only eliminate one, itll give birth to another cockroach. A weapon with a burst effect is highly recommended for this battle. Defeating the Cockroach will get you Chrysler Key 5. This enables you to travel through floors 1-50 on the elevator. EX GAME BOSS BATTLE 6: Crab (2) *Chrysler Building Floor 60* HP: 6,400 (Head), 1,600 (Right Claw), 1,600 (Left Claw) And now youre back to recycled bosses again! Dont let the high HP scare you. This boss is easy if you have strong equipment and are at a high level. You MUST use Haste in this battle because the Crabs speed has increased dramatically. If you dont, youll have a very tough time trying to catch up with this boss. The strategies you used for your first encounter with the Crab should work fine here. Defeating the Crab will get you Chrysler Key 6. This enables you to travel through floors 1-60 on the elevator. ----- UPDATE| ----- You are about to enter the most difficult floors of the Chrysler Building. This is an update to tell you on where you should be. Ayas level should be at about 35 or 36. Her weapon attack should be around 400 and her armor defense should be around 250. I strongly recommend you meet these stats because the enemies from here on out dont fool around. Youre inventory should also be filled with Medicines and healing items. EX GAME BOSS BATTLE 7: Bees (1-3) *Chrysler Building Floor 70* HP: 600 (Bee (1)), 1,200 (Bee (2)), 12,000 (Bee (3)) This battle is tough and extremely frustrating. Now youll know why I warned you with having strong equipment and having an inventory filled with healing items. The big bee you see at the start of the battle is Bee (3), the one with the highest HP amount. From time-to-time, shell have her Bee (1)s and Bee (2)s come out and attack Aya. For your convenience, Im dividing this boss fight into 3 sections: one section for each Bee and to tell you its attacks and purpose. ----- BEE (1)| ----- The Bee (1)s are a pain but most of the time theyre relatively harmless. One will occasionally make its way from the Bee (3)s side and thrust its stinger at Aya, inflicting poison. Use Detox immediately to remove the poison effect. Youll need all the HP you can get! The stinger attack can be dodged by moving to either of the Bee (1)s sides. But the true purpose of the Bee (1) is to heal the queen Bee for 200+ HP. Make sure you eliminate the Bee (1)s as soon as possible. Otherwise, depleting the queens 12,000 HP could take a lifetime. ----- BEE (2)| ----- These arent that tough. One will fly slowly towards Aya and attack her when they get close. Because they do have a high amount of HP, it may take several shots to eliminate them. Just keep your distance and pick them off quickly. A word of warning: try not to get in a situation where you have to worry about dodging the Bee (3)s and the Bee (2)s attacks at one time. It may prove to be a little too much. ----- BEE (3)| ----- The queen bee doesnt move around too much during battle, which makes it an easy target. But thats about the only break youll get. The queen bee is a real challenge and her attacks are difficult to dodge. Like Ive said before, you need strong equipment or the Bee (3)s attacks will most likely kill Aya in a single hit. The queen bee has 3 attacks, 2 of which are hard to dodge and the last attack (which is probably the cheapest attack in the game) is unavoidable. The 2 attacks that are hard to dodge are the energy wall and the 2 energy sickles. The energy sickles always come after the energy wall attack. To dodge the wall, you need to use Haste and move far enough to one side so that it passes by harmlessly. After the wall, the 2 energy sickles will come after Aya. To dodge the sickles, you need to be as far away from the boss as humanly possible and if youre lucky, they should pass by without damaging Aya. After inflicting enough damage, the queen bee will gain another attack and possibly the cheapest attack in the game: 400+ damage, defense down, cant be dodged and it prevents Aya from moving. But theres a second danger here. Because the attack holds Aya down for a long time, the queen bees companions can come up and attack Aya. The best you can do is cast Barrier and hope it absorbs the damage and pick off the queens companions quickly. Defeating the Bees will get you Chrysler Key 7. This enables you to travel through floors 1-70 on the elevator. ----- THE FINAL FLOORS| ----- There are no enemies, no weapons and no items on floors 71-76 except an increasing amount of mitochondrion goop. The walk up to the 77th floor is a refreshing little breather but the boss on the 77th floor is your ultimate challenge. Below is what your stats should look like. Remember that if you exceed the recommended level, youre more likely to succeed. LEVEL: 35+ WEAPON ATTACK: 450+ WEAPON RANGE: 275+ WEAPON BULLET CAPACITY: 150+ ARMOR DEFENSE: 250+ ARMOR P. ENERGY: 175+ ARMOR CRITICAL PERCENTAGE: 175+ INVENTORY: Filled with Medicine 3s and 4s, Revives, Full Cures, Full Recovers, Cure items and a backup armor. Youll be using a lot of parasite energies so youll need a backup armor to kick start your PE bar when it stops refilling. Your backup armor should also meet the armor recommendations above. YOU SHOULD ALSO: Use any stat boosters you have remaining in your inventory before going up to the 77th floor. Be sure to also make any last-minute stops to Wayne at the precinct to dump any unnecessary items and use any remaining tools to tweak your equipment. Use any bonus points to increase your stats. When you think youre ready, head up to the 77th floor. EX GAME BOSS BATTLE 8: The Original Eve *Chrysler Building Floor 77* HP: 40,000 This is your ultimate challenge. Defeating this purebred Eve will unlock the second and canonical ending to Parasite Eve but defeating Eve will not be easy. However if youve made it this far, you have the skills. The only question is: do you know how to use them? Eves most common attack is disappearing and reappearing to deliver a series of crushing blows to Aya. At first, the attack is relatively simple to dodge if you constantly move and try not to stand in one place for too long but as the battle goes on, it becomes tougher to dodge because Eve will follow Aya around the room until she gets hit. Eves second attack is charging up her mitochondrial energy and using her body as a bullet. If it hits Aya, itll zap her for all but 1 HP. Unfortunately, theres no real way to dodge the attack. Using Haste might help but thats no guarantee. Barrier might be able to reduce the damage but I highly doubt youll be able to nullify it. Eve also has 2 attacks that involve Maya. Both are unavoidable and can cause either stiffness or confusion. Eve can also use Maya to erect a barrier so that the damage done to Eve is reduced to 1 point of damage. Eve can also use Maya to heal her, which is where the real danger comes in. Mayas ability to heal Eve is the real danger in this battle. This is because Maya can heal Eve very quickly and not only that, the amount of HP Eve recovers is increased by 1,000 every time. This means that Eve can easily heal herself back to her full 40,000 HP in a matter of minutes. Now you know why its important to have a weapon with strong attack power. I highly recommend you use Liberate as many times as you can. This will do 1,200+ points of damage to Eve but it will deplete all of your PE, which is why I recommend a second piece of armor to kick start your PE bar when it stops refilling. While your PE bar is refilling, constantly shoot Eve and heal yourself when you need it. If you have the Auto Heal effect on your armor, good show! This way, you can ignore the damage done to Aya and concentrate on shooting Eve while you let Auto Heal and Revive do their jobs. When your PE bar is full again, go ahead and use Liberate. But your main concern is trying to inflict a ton of damage in a short amount of time. I should also tell you that you should never, never, NEVER shoot Eve while Maya is on the screen. Even if you just see Mayas shadow you shouldnt shoot at Eve. By doing so, youll keep Maya from healing Eve so that should ease the tension a little bit. If you have the patience to wait 5 seconds for Maya to leave, there should be no big problems. If you manage to deplete all of Eves 40,000 HP, youll see the second ending to Parasite Eve. Enjoy!
