The Bloody Palace Guide
 
First to unlock the Bloody Palace you need to complete the game on the Devil Hunter difficulty, once it is unlocked it will appear underneath the other difficulties that you have unlocked.

The Bloody Palace is made up of 101 floors each one is a circular shape with a teleporter in the middle, which will activate once all enemies are dead and take you to the next floor. You will start off with 2 minutes in time and can add more time by completing stages and killing enemies (see below for details). You cannot use ANY items, cannot save, and have no way of continuing, so dying means restarting the Palace. Each floor has a pre determined collection of enemies that gradually get harder as you progress through the palace, these enemies include all the enemies encountered in the game including the bosses: Berial, Bael, Echidna, Angelo Credo, Angelo Agnus, and Dante.

You can Play the Bloody Palace as either Nero or as Dante and both can use their super forms (unlimited Devil Trigger (DT)), which is unlocked by completing the "Dante Must Die" (DMD) Difficulty, however using the super forms will reduce your final score to 1/5 its original value.

Enemies That Drop Green Orbs (Health):
Certain enemies will regularly drop health, use these stages to refill your depleted health, if your health is already full green orbs will be counted as red orbs.

- Gladius

Enemy Bonuses (Enemy/Time Added):
The amount of time you receive for killing each enemy is listed here (A-Z):

- Alto Angelo +20 Seconds
- Assault +10 Seconds
- Basilisk +5 Seconds
- Bianco Angelo +10 Seconds
- Blitz +30 Seconds
- Chimera +(Determined by Host)
- Chimera Seed +2 Seconds
- Cutlass +15 Seconds
- Faust +20 Seconds
- Frost +10 Seconds
- Gladius +2 seconds
- Mega Scarecrow +15 Seconds
- Mephisto +10 Seconds
- Scarecrow +5 Seconds

You also get a time bonus at the start and the end of a boss fight.

Other Bonuses:
Several over time bonuses received in the Bloody Palace:

- D Rank Bonus +1 Seconds
- C Rank Bonus +2 Seconds
- B Rank Bonus +3 Seconds
- No Damage Bonus (Stages 1-19) + 30 Seconds
- No Damage Bonus (Stages 21+) + 20 Seconds
- Stage Clear Bonus (Stages 1-19) + 15 Seconds *
- Stage Clear Bonus (Stages 21+) + 10 Seconds *

* You will receive a stage clear bonus instead of a no damage bonus if you are hit at any point during a stage.

Deductions:

- Super Nero Used = Final Score x 0.2 (1/5 Final score)
- Super Dante Used = Final Score x 0.2 (1/5 Final score)

S Rank:
The King Of The Palace achievement requires you to complete the Bloody Palace (finish level 101) with an S Rank. To get this achievement you will need to complete the palace as the majority of the points required come from finishing the Palace.

You will need to score over 3,000,000 points in order to get an S rank, you should score this many points simply by completing the Bloody Palace (as long as you do NOT use a super character).

Strategies for completing the Bloody Palace Using Nero:

Nero:

Regular Enemies:

Strategies that work on the regular enemies of the Bloody Palace

- Alto Angelo:
- Assault:
- Basilisk:
- Bianco Angelo:
- Blitz:

Submitted By Ownasaur:
If you are using Nero then use the same strategy, just use his charge shot 3 on the Blue Rose. I swap between using charge 3 and charge 2. Eventually you will be able to attack. Be extra sure you activate your Devil Trigger while using Nero and be sure to grab the Blitz as well. Your throw will do more damage with DT active and continually hit X while in the throw animation to add more damage with the knives.

Submitted By bungmonkey:
Blitzes really aren't a problem at all except on the floor with 2 of them (the hardest floor in the whole palace IMO) Just jump around air hiking while charging your gun and blasting them until the shield wears off. At this point you'll want to DT and buster him 3 times while spamming your gun key. As soon as the first one is done run straight to him and buster him again. Repeat 1 more time. After the third one give him a few slashes/gun shots and he will explode and give you an instant SSS rank.

- Chimera Seed:
- Cutlass:
- Faust:
- Frost:
- Gladius:
- Mega Scarecrow:
- Mephisto:

Bosses:
Strategies that work on the bosses of the Bloody Palace.

- Berial:

Submitted By bungmonkey:
I'll give some Berial tips, works for both Dante and Nero. Start off with a stinger/streak depending on who you are and position yourself right around the side of either of his front legs. While you are in that area he should do his little spin slash move nearly all of the time with his explosion move thrown in sometimes. Just sit in that spot and do some basic combos on him, nothing that you can't jump/run away from really quickly. When you see him get ready to slash at you just jump, air hike, and then helm splitter/split back down to your position and repeat. You'll want to air hike because when he lands from his spin slash the flames on the ground seem to hurt you sometimes. Always be watching for him to start his explosion attack. If you see him start that drop what you're doing and keep running away, if you react quick enough you will make it far enough away. When he drops his flames DT and slice him up for a bit as Nero then buster his head and buster him again while he is on the ground. For Dante switch to gilgamesh and use real impact as it does major damage. I can kill him pretty quickly without taking damage pretty often so it works for me.

Submitted By Adram:
Nero is capable of completely steamrolling Berial in like a minute or less. I think what messes up most people is they try to fight from the ground. That makes it really awkward to dodge his most common sword slashes while attacking. Also, you deal less damage when you're hitting his body.

Just right in his face and Aerial Combo like crazy. Get the timing down and rev every single hit. From this position you can dodge all of Berial's melee attacks by jumping straight up. With Enemy Step, you jump off of his head, then you still have an Air Hike for additional height. When he uses his explosion, drop to the ground and use Shuffle. Shuffle will travel right through when timed correctly and you'll be back in melee range.

The only time you have to leave melee range is when he summons flame pillars. If he ever decides to do his long range leaping sword attack, remember that you can use Snatch to fly over him in mid-air. And you can block the flaming leap with a buster.

Submitted By Bajan Elite:
hey i have a tip for fighting Berial that can get you through without taking damage as long as your good at dodging, when the fight starts just try to keep your distance and let your blue rose charge up to level 3, if he gets close and attacks then dodge and blast him in the face, then put some distance between u and him, as you all know after you blast an enemy with a charge 3 shot the take additional damage when the bullet explodes, so just keep your distance, dodge his attacks and blast his face with level 3 shots, when he becomes weakened and his flame dies down, you are able to use your buster, activate your D.T. buster his head and then once more when he's on the ground and make sure you are hitting the X button while in D.T. and you are doing the buster moves, so you can do additional damage with those flying blades, if he survives both buster moves then keeping shooting before he gets up and he'll die right after.

- Bael:
- Echidna:
- Angelo Credo:
- Angelo Agnus:
- Dante:

General Strategies:
Strategies that work on many different enemies throughout the Bloody Palace.

Submitted By bungmonkey:
I just completed Bloody Palace as Nero today and managed to take 1st on the US leaderboards so I'll give my tips for Nero. Probably the most important thing is to remap your controls so you can charge your gun at all times (I just changed it from X to RT, then changed taunt to X, not that you will use it in BP though). It takes some getting used to but being able to charge your gun anytime is a GODSEND. Another thing to note is that enemies not currently in your field of vision will not initiate an attack on you. Use that to your advantage. Also, something most people don't seem to know, when you are performing a buster as Nero while DT'd spam your gun and it will shoot out little phantom swords to give you extra style/damage.

Strategies for completing the Bloody Palace using Dante:

Dante:

Regular Enemies:
Strategies that work on the regular enemies of the Bloody Palace

- Alto Angelo:
- Assault:
- Basilisk:
- Bianco Angelo:
- Blitz:

Submitted By Ownasaur:
If you are using Dante, then use the shotgun/Pandora's Box combo. The strategy I use it to constantly jump while using the shotgun, you have a faster rate of fire this way. When the Blitz is about to do his beam attack move to the side and hit LT (the next weapon after the shotgun is Pandora's Box). Then use Revenge on him. Immediately switch back to the shotgun and continue until the Blitx isn't surrounded by electricity. Activate your Devil Trigger for extra damage.

- Berial:

Submitted By Ownasaur:
If you are having trouble with Berial you can try what I did. If you are Dante, just keep spamming the the laser (Revenge I think it was called) from Pandora's Box on him. Eventually he will be low enough on health to finish him off up close and personal. I can drop about half or a little more of his health before I have to actually start getting close to attack him.

Same thing for Nero. Charge up Blue Rose to get the level 3 shot. After about 5-6 shots, his flames will go out and then you can use your grabs with DT on to get massive damage.

Be sure to pay attention when he rams his fist into the ground. When he does this just let go of lock and keep running. Even if you aren't at full sprint, as long as you keep moving the flames won't be able to hit you. Good luck.

No checkpoints, no saves, no items, so you have to do it in one sitting (you can pause though :)). Some enemies drop health such as the gladius, so try to survive to stages that contain these enemies to refill your health. I'll make a note of the enemy that drop health and list them when I can.

Akamaru_Sensei 02-13-2008 07:12 PM

Alto Angelo x2, Bianco Angelo x44 LOL this made me laugh today, sorry lol. Won't be to bad though since the bianco are pretty slow.

I love how Capcom always puts so many "extras" on their games. It makes me happy to get my 60 bucks out of it. Hats off to them for making a great game!!

Ownasaur 02-13-2008 10:24 PM

Great guide Demon. I know this will help many others along with myself in determining total points. Any idea on points required for an S rank?

I don't have an exact number but I believe it is in the region of 3,000,000 (3 million). I'll add that to the guide, and change it once I have more info. So if anyone has an exact number let me know.

Waiting til I get Super Dante and Super Nero to do this.

Well, if you want to get another achievement, S Rank Bloody Palace, you can't use Super Dante/Nero. As he said, it reduces your score to a fifth of what it supposed to be.

Using automatic or manual is just a prefrence, if your not used to manual you'll likely find it more difficult than automatic. I would suggest leaving it until you have played through the game a few times, so maybe complete Human, Devil Hunter, and Son Of Sparda, go back to get some S ranks by that point you should be very comfortable with the controls and the combos which will make getting through the palace a lot easier, not to mention you will have fought every enemy and boss many times with both characters and so have some good ideas on how to beat them, and of course will have unlocked more combos and abilities. Beyond that its all about practice.

No problem, glad I could help:). I am making another run on Bloody Palace right now. On level 21 at the moment. Going to see how far I can get without using a super character. If I don't beat it, maybe I can try to get an S. That way we can confirm if you have to beat Bloody Palace with an S to get the achievement or if you simply just need to acquire enough points for an S rank, yet don't need to finish it.

I appreciate the effort and your help. Right now I believe that it is possible to receive an S rank on the Palace without completing the last level just by getting enough points. However I don't think this is what is required to get the achievement, that said I haven't confirmed this yet, if you could that would be very useful.

Yeah, I will definitely try if I can. Got to level 35 but ran out of time. That was using Nero. I will try a run with Dante a little later and see what I can do.

Im another person needing help with level 18.. that Blitz just destroys me..

Your throw will do more damage with DT active and continually hit X while in the throw animation to add more damage with the knives.

Hope that helps.

TheLazyWolf 02-15-2008 05:02 AM

Ok thanks..

Question.. you switch between charge 2 and 3? Ive got the gun at charge 3 but is there a noticable animation between charge levels? I hadnt noticed one but perhaps i wasnt charging long enough..

Heres something i just figured out, though it may be common knowledge to most people, dunno.. If you use Pandora with Dante and Hold RB and hit forward + gunslinger skill, Dante will throw Pandora on the ground and it explodes in bright light and destroys the shadows of the wraiths and the electricity of blitz instantly.

Question.. you switch between charge 2 and 3? Ive got the gun at charge 3 but is there a noticable animation between charge levels? I hadnt noticed one but perhaps i wasnt charging long enough..

Heres something i just figured out, though it may be common knowledge to most people, dunno.. If you use Pandora with Dante and Hold RB and hit forward + gunslinger skill, Dante will throw Pandora on the ground and it explodes in bright light and destroys the shadows of the wraiths and the electricity of blitz instantly.

Between charge 1 and 2 I don't really notice it that much, maybe a brighter blue. I only notice because once it reaches a new charge level it will make a noise. Of course charge 3 is obvious because of the red color it emits instead of the blue.

And I didn't know that about Pandora's Box. I knew about the move, but never that it would do that. If that is the case, when the Blitz does his beam attack that shots straight forward, run up to him and then pull out the box. It would be quicker then having to shot at him.

I didn't know about that move either, I'll try it out. If it works I'll add it to the guide.

Ha ha i done this in about 1 hour 30 minutes today with Super Dante (i just spammed stinger =P) but does anybody now how many points you actually need for an S grade because i think i got around 400,000 with Super on so that times five as it gets timed by 02 is 2,000,000 so that achievements seems pretty hard =S
Anyone have any ideas of scores?

So do we know if this move works then or not?
