The Death of Chester

Challenges

  • Defeat all the enemies.
  • Complete the first trial without activating the Chaos Power.
  • Destroy your enemies without more than 20 seconds elapsing between kills.
  • Complete the first three trials in one try.

Enemies: Three Dungeon Jailers

How to Complete: This is a pretty simple challenge and in order to complete all challenges, you need to activate Talisman of the Dragon and spam attack buttons to kill the enemies.

Infection: First Seal

Challenges

  • Defeat all the enemies.
  • Complete the first trial without activating the Powers of Void or Chaos.
  • Keep your concentration at the maximum level for 30 seconds straight.
  • Complete the first three trials in one try.

Enemies: Two Soldiers of Satan and Four Mutants

How to Complete: Just as the challenge starts, you need to perfectly guard any oncoming attack and keep on hitting the attack button (without using Chaos or Void). Once your Focus Meter reaches full, start wasting time until you complete the third challenge.

And once you beat the first wave without using Chaos or Void, the rest of the tasks are really easy.

The Agony of Sir Reginar

Recollections of Ruby

The Torture of Sir Nualan

Challenges

  • Defeat all the enemies.
  • Get the Dungeon Jailers to kill 6 Dungeon Minions.
  • Kill 9 Dungeon Minions without recovering life by any means.
  • Complete the first three trials in one try.

Enemies: Dungeon Jailer and Dungeon Minions

How to Complete: The most grinding task is killing 6 Dungeon Minions by Dungeon Jailers. In order to do this, you need to activate Chaos Magic and break Jailer’s Shield. This will make Jailers rush and randomly attack anyone in their path. You need to make sure that the Minions are on low health and grouped together.

Once you have done that, use your Shadow Whip or Chaos Claws to beat down the other enemies. Also, make sure that you don’t use Void Sword if you want to complete Challenge #3.

The Torment of Sir Torlios

Challenges

  • Defeat all the enemies.
  • Destroy 8 Bloody Skeletons.
  • Complete the first trial without breaking any of the Bloody Skeleton’s shields.
  • Complete the first three trials in one try.

Enemies: Four Bloody Skeletons

Defeating all four Bloody Skeletons without breaking their shields sounds like a tough task but, it is not if you know what to do. First, don’t try and attack them with Shadow Whip or Chaos Claws. Activate your Void Sword and throw a Void Projectile to freeze them.

When they’re frozen, switch back to Shadow Whip or Chaos Claws and break them. Once you have defeated them all, the challenge will be completed. The second trial can be completed as per your will.

The Madness of Sir Gerard

Challenges

  • Defeat all the enemies using just the weapons authorized at each point in time.
  • Defeat all the enemies without recovering life with the Void Sword.
  • Defeat all the enemies without breaking any shields or using the Talisman of the Dragon.
  • Complete the first three trials in one try.

Enemies: Three Vampires and Bloody Skeletons

How to Complete: This challenge is all about timing and perfect execution. You need to wait for a moment when the game will allow you to use both Chaos Claws and Void Sword.

Remember that you mustn’t attack using the Void Sword but only throw in Projectiles to freeze them and finish them off using Chaos Power.

Infection: Second Seal

Challenges

  • Defeat all enemies without Trevor dying.
  • Complete the first trial without activating the Void Power.
  • Complete the first trial without using the Relics.
  • Complete the first three trials in one try.

Enemies: 50 Mutants

How to Complete: Possessed Citizens are already pretty easy to kill and with Trevor on your side; this challenge is not that big of a problem. All you need to do is not to use any Relics, Void Magic, and don’t let Trevor die.

Other than this, the challenge is pretty easy. Trevor will keep on healing you and you can use all sorts of attacks. The Mutants will come in large groups so a Perfect Guard is pretty easy to perform.

Reminders of Amethyst

The Keep

Challenges

  • Defeat all the enemies.
  • Kill 5 Brotherhood Soldiers while they are affected by the Silver Blessing.
  • Kill 5 Brotherhood Soldiers with counterattack hits.
  • Complete the first three trials in one try.

Enemies: Brotherhood Clerics and Brotherhood Soldiers

How to Complete: There will be plenty of Brotherhood Soldiers to complete second and third challenge. Just as the battle starts, the Cleric will send-in either a Silver Blessing or a Gold Blessing. Your objective is to kill five soldiers while they’re under the effect of Silver Blessing.

The soldiers will remain the same but, with a little increase in health.

Your next objective should be performing a counterattack to kill soldiers. As I have aforementioned that these soldiers will keep on spawning, that should not be a problem. Once you’ve completed this challenge, focus your attention to Clerics and wipe them off to complete this challenge.

Also, don’t forget to use your Void Sword if you run out of HP.

The Revenge of Channarong

Challenges

  • Defeat all the enemies.
  • Complete the first trial without 20 consecutive seconds passing with no Blood Orbs in the area.
  • Complete the first trial without hitting the Heavy Warriors in close combat or using the Talisman of the Dragon.
  • Complete the first three trials in one try.

Enemies: Two Heavy Brotherhood Warriors and Brotherhood Soldiers

How to Complete: This challenge can be a bit frustrating if you don’t know what to do. A simple way to complete is by killing a handful of Brotherhood Soldiers (By any mean) and activating your Chaos Power to cause an Earthquake; you must have this ability.

Infection: Third Seal

Challenges

  • Defeat all the enemies.
  • Complete the first trial without losing more than 50 life points from enemy shots.
  • Destroy each of the Riot Mechs’ weapons.
  • Complete the first three trials in one try.

Enemies: Two Riot Mechs and Riot Soldiers

How to Complete: Your primary objective is to destroy each of the Riot Mechs’ weapons. I’ve calculated them and you need to destroy a total of two Launchers, two Flamethrowers, and two Cannons.

All these weapons can efficiently be destroyed by activating your Void and Chaos Powers and throwing in Projectiles at the weapons. Keep on switching between Chaos & Void and continue to throw in Projectiles.

After you’ve done that, finish them off with anything; preferably using Talisman of the Dragon.

Infection: Fourth Seal

Challenges

  • Defeat all the enemies.
  • Destroy the Horned Demon attacking only when it is frozen.
  • Complete the first trial without more than 30 seconds passing with no experience gained.
  • Complete the first three trials in one try.

Enemies: You need to note that the Horned Demon stays frozen for three seconds only so you need to be quick about it. First, use your Void Projection to freeze him and immediately switch to your Chaos Claws or Shadow Whip to launch an attack.

Also, there is a timer which increases by killing Mutants. There is an unlimited number of these Mutants so that shouldn’t be a problem. Once you’ve killed the Frozen Horned Demon, finish off the remaining enemies and be done with this challenge.

Memories of Emerald

The Dead Arise

  • Kill 5 Servant Corpses in a single series of hits from the air.
  • Complete the first three trials in one try.

Enemies: Servant Corpses

How to Complete: This challenge revolves around killing five Servant Corpses in a single series of hits from the air. The rest of the challenges can be completed by using Talisman of the Dragon.

As for completing the 3rd challenge, you need to get in the middle of enemies and activate Void Power. Press LT+Y followed by jumping into the air. While you’re in the air, switch to Chaos Claws and hold down LT while continuously pressing Y to end this challenge.

And finally, when it comes to avoid grabbing by Servant Corpses, keep on jumping and evading to pass those ten seconds.

Infection: Fifth Seal

  • Complete the first trial without the Dark Apostle surviving more than a total of 40 seconds.
  • Complete the first trial without spending more than 20 seconds straight at under 100% life.

Enemies: Three Dark Monks

How to Complete: The third challenge require you to have full health. For this, make sure you’re on full health before entering into the fray.

The Battle of Niflhel

Challenges

  • Defeat all the enemies.
  • Get the Paladin to break the armor of all Heavy Brotherhood Warriors without him killing any of them.
  • Complete the first trial without the Paladin keeping the swords together for more than 20 seconds straight.
  • Complete the first three trials in one try.

Enemies: Paladin and three Heavy Brotherhood Warriors

How to Complete: Just as the battle starts, you need to activate Chaos Power and throw in a Chaos Projectile at each of Heavy Brotherhood Warriors. Once you’ve done that, roam and evade in-between them and see Paladin breaking their armor. It might take a few attempts but, he will eventually break them.

Once it is done, use Talisman of the Dragon or kill the Warrior in any way you want. After getting rid of them, you need to fight the Paladin. The third challenge gets completed automatically so you don’t have to worry about it.

Infection: Sixth Seal

Challenges

  • Defeat all the enemies.
  • Survive until the Dark Monks have invoked 12 Possessed Citizens.
  • Get 12 Possessed Citizens to die from the Riot Police mines.
  • Complete the first three trials in one try.

Enemies: Four Riot Soldiers and two Dark Monks

How to Complete: This challenge doesn’t deserve to be this far. All you need to do is hop around and wait until 12 Possessed Citizens get killed by mines. And believe me when I say this, they’ll die.

Use Talisman of the Dragon to kill the rest and complete the challenge.

Infection: Seventh Seal

Challenges

  • Defeat all the enemies before the amount of Servant Corpses reaches 20.
  • Complete the first trial without activating the Powers of Void or Chaos or using the Relics.
  • Kill 25 Servant Corpses before Victor Belmont does.
  • Complete the first three trials in one try.

Enemies: 75 Servant Corpses

How to Complete: Although you won’t be able to use Void Power, Chaos Power, or Relics but Victor Belmont will be of great help. He will lower down the HP of Servant Corpses so that you can easily kill them.

This is the last challenge of the game and killing all Servant Corpses will complete it.
