Cheats, Codes & FAQs

Best ending

Use the Paranoia Soul to fight Aguni. Collect the Magic Seal, then return to the center of the castle. Have Mina's Talisman equipped when you enter the Boss door, then finish the game.

Secret monsters

There are three secret monsters (Yeti, Mothman, and Flying Humanoid). To get the Yeti, you must first get the Waiter Skeleton Soul then go back to the very beginning of the game. You will see him walking in the background. Toss the curry and he will come up where you can attack him and gain his Soul. You will need the Rycuda Soul leveled up to at least two to get Mothman. Go to The Pinnacle to the area where there are two final guards and a light in between them. Strike the generator next to the light with Rycuda and Mothman will appear. For the Flying Humanoid, you will need the Mandragora Soul. Enter the room in between the Zephyr Boss room and a save room, then use the Soul.

Easier Boss Rush mode

Activate the Devil Soul and use the Valmanway Sword. You can take down all the Bosses in less than five minutes.

Easy money

Go to the Lost Village and kill some Axe Armors until you get an axe. Then, go to Yoko's place and upgrade the axe into the Battle Axe. Next, upgrade the Battle Axe into a Bhuj. Then, go to Hammer's shop and sell it for 10,000 gold.

Easy Soul Eater Ring and money

Get the Mimic Soul and go to the Clock Tower. There is a save room with a spike pit next to it at the bottom right corner of the Clock Tower. The Mimic Soul will usually give you 500 gold each time you are hit by the spikes. Whenever you get low on health, go to the save room, heal, and repeat.

Attack faster

If you have a heavy weapon like a great sword, slow attacks can be a problem. To hit an enemy twice quickly, stand very close to them and attack. Then just as it connects, press L to dash backwards. As soon as it stops, you can attack again; if you are still close enough it should hit. This is quicker than just attacking twice normally.

Double Archer

Set Amalaric Sniper Soul as a Bullet Soul, then set Skull Archer as a Guardian Soul. Now when you go to charge the Skull Archer with R, the Amalaric Sniper will automatically activate at the same time and fire alongside. This is a very powerful combo, especially in the early levels. REMEMBER: Depending on how long you charge the Skull Archer's soul, it may consume a lot of mana.
