  • Defeating Isaac

    Before you start the first battle with Isaac, make sure the second Innocent Devil you have is leveled up to Water Golem and put in defense. Then, equip the Rapier and continue. The Black Demon will mostly attack your demon, but it will not get through its defense because it is in Water Golem form. When Isaac twirls his spear and slams it down, jump to avoid the shockwave. After his combo attack, attack him with the Rapier to get in a lot of hits. When Isaac yells ''Kill him'', the demon will sink into the ground and follow you. When Isaac laughs that indicates that the demon will attack where it is. Do not attack Isaac while he has the demon attacking you. Wait for it to attack your demon, then attack Isaac. Isaac will also use a tornado. Run away when he uses it, then repeat this to defeat him.

  • Stealing Boss items

      Crazy Armor
      Steal: Galtite
      Uses: Hien, Force Gloves

      In its first stage, Crazy Armor will do a long-range attack where it will try to "headbutt" you. Go behind it and steal the item. You will have a good amount of time if you dodge it close enough to its body.

      Wyvern
      Steal: Shortcake
      Uses: HP Restore

      At the beginning of the battle, Wyvern will burrow its head into the ground. You must jump onto its body and stay on it while the Wyvern takes flight. You have some good time to damage it while it flies. About seven or eight seconds, steal the Shortcake from the Wyvern's neck. You will take no damage when you fall.

      Trevor Belmont (Round 1)
      Steal: None
      Uses: None

      Skeleton Diver
      Steal: Sushi
      Uses: HP Restore

      Later in the battle, the Skeleton Driver and the Zombie Fish will jump onto the platform together and slide toward you. Dodge to the side, then jump and steal before they retreat to the water.

      Minotaur
      Steal: Devil Iron
      Uses: Hien

      Later in the battle, the Minotaur will leap and try to slam directly on top of you. It usually does this at long range. When it is far away, wait for it to jump, then run backwards a short distance. Then, double jump into its face to steal the Devil Iron. The double jump should be timed just before the Minotaur lands.

      Isaac (Round 1)
      Steal: Devil's Vein
      Uses: Chavre-Souris (Isaac's signature lance, prerequisite to summon The End. Gather 100 Evo Crystals on your Brow ID to evolve)

      Isaac will occasionally use the second attack's finisher (sliding, smash upwards) at long range. He usually does this at the beginning of the battle. Block or dodge the slide, then steal as he lands. To make things easier, use the Phoenix ID's Big Bang (kill a certain number of enemies level 25 or higher) attack to instantly kill Abel (Isaac's The End summon), as he does not count as a Boss. Big Bang does not affect Bosses.

      Saint Germain
      Steal: Immortal Fragment
      Uses: Gatling Gun

      Keep a strong Mage-type ID out. Occasionally, Saint Germain will freeze time and hit you with a giant slash or explosion attack. Using Time Stop while time is frozen cancels out the freeze altogether and will allow you to steal the item.

      Trevor Belmont (Round 2)
      Steal: Curry
      Uses: HP Restore

      Trevor uses a more powerful version of the Cross Heart weapon (the regular one is the boomerang), where he leaps in the air yelling "Holy Cross!". Immediately after he lands, but before the light fades, steal from him.

      Dullahan
      Steal: Purple Glitter
      Uses: Laser Blade (Isaac's weapon in the introduction sequence and second Boss battle)

      Be very careful doing this, because making a mistake will cause you a lot of damage. At the beginning of the battle, he will leap into the air and send out a multi-hit shockwave. This opens the steal window. To get him to do it up close, block or Perfect Guard his sword attacks. Occasionally he will use a rush attack similar to the Great Armors in Eneomaos Machine Tower -- be on the defensive. When he does the leap, do a normal jump and steal from him. If you are too far, delay your second jump or jump over the first hit and Perfect Guard the second.

      Isaac (Round 2)
      Steal: Cheese
      Uses: HP Restore

      Isaac is very different the second time you fight him, and seems to be lightweight. Equip a fast weapon like a Bastard Sword or a Laser Blade (if available), or a Knuckle-class weapon. Use the first finishing move to send Isaac flying across the room. Do it near a wall, and quickly press the button to steal, as he must be airborne.

      Death
      Steal: Death's Pulse
      Uses: Death's Scythe (strongest weapon in the game, because of the sheer difficulty to get this item)

      First, make sure you are experienced with your Perfect Guards. When fighting Death, have a Fairy-type ID summoned. After losing the first lifebar, Death will sparingly (perhaps twice in ten minutes) use a Supernova attack. He will condense a fireball in his hands for a brief moment, then throw it out onto the battlefield. Stay next to Death while he does this and prepare yourself. Block the first hit from the Supernova, then proceed to Perfect Guard the rest of the hits, which are in a specific rhythm. If one is accidentally guarded, then you have one chance to Perfect Guard the next. If you do not, you must to start over. Jump into the air after the last hit, but before the fire dissipates and steal. The window will open, then close, but the game will acknowledge that you have Death's Pulse. Fortunately, Death occasionally does this attack twice in a row, if you should fail the first time.

      Legion
      Steal: Pizza
      Uses: HP Restore

      Fight Legion using a longer range weapon with decent speed, like the Chavre-Souris or the Laser Blade so you can take out both Legion and the corpses that will do heavy damage to you. Also, use a flying ID, like a Crimson or Indigo or The End. After its shell collapses entirely, get on a ledge higher than it. You have approximately 12 to 15 seconds to move to a higher point. Take a free fall into Legion when it glows with a malevolent purple aura. Time the steal to take the Pizza in mid-fall. Quickly run to the edge of the room to avoid Legion's final shell from crushing you and prepare for Legion's second form.

      Nuculais
      Steal: Napoletana
      Uses: HP Restore

      Nuculais is the game's ultimate optional Boss. It can kill you very quickly. It has a laser that will kill you in less than ten seconds if you are less than level 50. It also has a telekinesis attack that will throw exploding corpses at you, a liquid-teleportation attack that damages you, a series of slaps, a flying sword dash, and a giant-transformation move. However, the move to look for is a grab attack. He will rear his arm back and then forward, extending at you. Perfect Guard the attack then rush him and steal.

      Dracula (Round 1)
      Steal: Tomato Juice
      Uses: HP Restore

      Dracula will open a pair of demonic wings and disappear, saying "I'll burn you to ashes!" He will then reappear for a grab attack that does serious damage. Dodge or jump away when he reappears and steal from his face. He does this attack quite often.

      Dracula (Round 2)
      Steal: Vampire Blood
      Uses: Dracula's Clothes (great armor)

      Dracula is now a huge vampiric black angel. Occasionally but rarely, Dracula will back away and rush the platform with a huge destructive punch. After he does it, jump into him and steal from his chest. The punch is easy to avoid, but a shockwave follows it which will mess up the steal and do serious damage. You can double jump the punch and the wave, or use the Fairy-type Tiramisu's Invincibility Jar technique.
