Nero can easily defeat the lesser demons he encounters. However, if you cannot manage fighting more than one enemy at a time, avoid lumping them together. As for the Spiky Tentacles, move around while attacking to avoid getting hit by the spikes. You could also dodge sideways if you are already familiar with the move. Hold R1 (Lock-On) + Left analog stick (Move) + X (Jump.)

6) Locate and obtain the Gold Orb from the bridge tower.

If you cannot acquire the Gold Orb, you can revisit this mission after obtaining more abilities and Devil Breakers. This will make reaching it much easier.

8) Cross through the debris and pass through the broken section of the bridge.

The boss looks like an Overmind from StarCraft with Spiky Tentacles. Focus all of Nero’s attacks on the core while avoiding the Spiky Tentacles. If you dodge your way away from the core, use your ranged attacks while trying to get reapproach. Also, don’t forget to charge up your “Exceed” gauge to deal additional damage.
