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).

I'm planning on expanding this thread to contain a section for strategies for beating normal enemies and bosses in the bloody palace using both Nero and Dante, if you have any strategies you'd like to add post them here and I will add them to the guide when I get a chance.

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

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.

The Bloody Palace Guide - Dante Strategies

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.

Bosses:

- 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.

Submitted By bungmonkey:

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.

Hey Guys
I am one of the unlucky people who have now died twice on Dante...
Please any tips will be very helpful....
Ive tried the buster method , where you shoot and as he gets close you buster him , ive tried to keep a distance and he just shoots me with his shotgun. I really dont know what else to try. I can make it all the way there almost everytime now. If i get past the 2 blitzes i always make it to dante.

Im very frustrated to say the least now , so please any tips ideas will be seriously appreciated.
PS- Is hye the same difficulty as stage 1 on DMD mode ?

I just finished the Bloody Tower myself and miraculously I got an S ranking, I had over 3.4 Million points....I was so happy to see the achievement icon pop up I didnt get to submit my score, I am a little bummed about that. I completed it as Nero and I have a pretty good strategy for fighting Dante at the end as Nero.

Always make sure to charge your Blue Rose to level 3 and let Dante swing his sword at you, when he does jump up to avoid it and grab him with your Devil Bringer and whack away at him a couple times then shoot him with Blue Rose 3, that should take a pretty good chunk of his health away. I just kept doing that over and over and it worked great. I always get my butt kicked by him during story mode but now I have a bit of an easier time. I hope this helps someone out.

Just did my second BP run, ranked 20th on the US boards this time (3.9 million), which surprised me as it wasn't going that well towards the end.

Dale, that's almost the exact same strategy I use for Dante. He rarely gets a hit in. What I do is use Snatch from a distance. Sometimes he'll jump it, but he'll usually roll to the side and use a Stinger. Just roll out of the way and then grab him. I do "Y, Y, pause, Y, Y", then fire Charge Shot 3. You can also grab him out of mid-air when the explosion shoots him up with the right timing.

Few more things. When he switches to Trickster, a Charge Shot will hit him in the middle of a dash. Easy damage. When he switches to Royal Guard, DT and walk right up and Buster him, he plays pure defense but can't block a grab.

Grats on 20th place, oh and I had no idea about that last part. I think I'll play the Bloody Tower again when I can get Super Nero. Thanks about that tip, who'd figure he wouldn't just smack you in the face if you got too close lol.

hiya, just completed the bloody palace, with super dante obviously! it took me 1:33 minutes. when I was fighting dante at the very end, i took of health gradually. I then changed to the fighting weapon (Gilgamesh?) and did the Y combos and it took a lot of health off him, so If anybody is having trouble with dante at the end try that weapon it is very affective.

It IS sort of tough, specially the bloody palace. I've only made it to the 18 floor where the blitz is. He kills me ridiculously fast, but I'll try the shotgun/pandora combo suggested some time ago and see what happens.

Can anyone give me some advice?

I have attempted to complete the bloody palace a few times now without the super characters and I keep failing because of time. I don't find it too hard, but the fact that I run out of time usually on around level 85 (the one with the 2 blitz's). Again, I don't find them hard to beat but I only have about a minute left to defeat them and both times I have got this far I run out of time.

Can anyone help me or give me advice on to how to gain more time? I know each enemy gives a time bonus and no damage does too but does anyone have any specific techniques? Also no comments like "defeat enemies faster" as that just doesn't help. Thanks in advance.

Depends, are you using Dante or Nero?

No matter who you use, one of the biggest things you need to remember is to constantly go into devil trigger, especially if you are having trouble against the enemies you're going against. With the amount of enemies thrown at you, you will recover your DT much quicker than you normally would.

I use Nero, I don't find Dante very effective off of DT, he may be quick but he has a lack of decent moves. I like using Nero because of his cool B move.

I use DT a lot, especially when there is a lot of enemies surrounding me, activating it usually sends them to the ground or takes off their health.

I think the main problem is that I don't use it when it is full, I only activate it when I need to. When I give it another go which I will do when I have a few hours free I will use my DT when the bar is full that way I don't waste it when I kill more enemies.

Dante has plenty of moves to use, I'd say the problem with him is trying to figure out which ones to use.

Anyway with Nero, you need to always keep charge shot going. Shooting normally is useless with him, and you will need to be able to charge it up to level 3 in order to do any real damage with it. Seeing as how you will need your index finger in order to lock on to enemies, your going to have to keep your middle on RT for all of the Bloody Palace. A level 3 charge shot is a must against Blitzes and Fausts, but don't be afraid to let a shot off if one isn't going to pop up, it takes the weaker enemies out very quickly.

Also, are you using the sword's exceed? Anytime your against someone tough, using the exceed will let you do some crazy damage. Even if your not perfect with it, even getting one gauge can do some damage.

Other than that, the only other tips I can think of is go into DT whenever it's full, and knock an enemy into the air when there are a lot. Good luck on your next attempt.

Well, I finally did it!

For some reason, I found it fairly easy except the two blitz's they were fairly difficult. I had about 15 minutes left after I beat Dante, the first 30 levels I completed very quickly and without taking much damage.

Exceed is a real big help, after each round the timer stops so I filled the exceed bar to the third one, and during each round I used the exceed to my advantage as there is more power involved. As for shooting, I held down the X button ALL the time, as soon as I got the red arm I shot at an enemy which obviously causes them to explode. During blitz's and the ghosts I also used DT to add the blades fire at them for extra damage.

I would just like to say thanks for the wonderful Bloody Palace guide, it really helped me as I knew which enemies were coming up in future levels and then I knew whether or not to keep the DT gauge full so I can use it if the next level is tough. Also, the boss guides for Beriel also helped ver y much.

I cleared the Bloody Palace with some fair ease, my only advice would be to use Nero as his buster move is extremely effective, as well as the charged shot.
