Demon King’s Castle Walkthrough (Part 1)

Castle: 1st Stratum

1 From the large corridor, head all the way north.
2 Pass through the long straight path that stretches north. Then, turn east past the first demon NPC.
3 You will eventually come to the first red device near the stairs that blows out a gust of wind. More of these will be encountered throughout the area so get familiar with their timing to avoid getting blown away and falling off.
4 Pass by the first red dive and go up the stairs going south.
5 Follow the path as it bends east and then north again. Keep going north and enter the door.
6 Go down the stairs stretching east and use the leyline fount on your right.
7 Continue down the stairs and through the next door.
8 Follow the path clockwise going up and over the gaps while picking the items along the way. Then, head to the southeast through the door and follow the straight path down the stair going south.
9 Go through the next door ahead and move clockwise around the walkway while avoiding the gust coming out of the red devices.
10 Go through the door to the south when you reach the top to exit to the 2nd stratum.

2 Head west and go around this section to reach the southeastern section of the area’s western half.
3 Go up the stairs and examine the dead angel on the floor.
4 Continue up the stairs and prepare to battle Chernobog.
5 Chernobog is able to act up to 4 times in battle and has access to several debuffs to reduce your evasion, hit rate, and defense. He will mostly use Physical skills and will use Mamudoon, a powerful all-target Dark attack), after gathering Magatsuhi.

For this fight, it is recommended to have an ally constantly apply Sukunda to make Chernobog miss. Have Dark Stones ready when Chernobog gathers Magatsuhi to reduce incoming Dark damage the next turn and attack the boss with Light skills.

7 Follow the stairs down going east and pass through the door to the north.

6 Move east and go down the stairs. Use the next red device to fly to the platform to the north.
7 Go north and over the gap to the next platform. Move forward and over the gap to the another platform on you right.
8 Jump down the platform and go up the stairs on the upper right corner. Move west and go past the three red devices.
9 Jump over the gap and continue west along the straight path. Follow the path as it turns south.
10 When you come up to three sets of red devices, stand in front of the one in the middle to carry you to the platform to the east.
11 Go up the stairs going east. When you see another set of red devices, stand in front of the first one to fly to the walkway to the north. Move west to find another set of devices and stand in front of the one third one to fly to the platform to the south.
12 Move along the path and go west through the door.
13 Follow the stairs down going west and use the leyline fount on your left.

20 Follow the stairs down going east. Enter the next door.
21 Make your way to the south and use the red device on the ground to go up the walkway to the southwest.
22 Move west and jump down to find three red devices lined up on the ground. Take the one in the middle to carry you up while another red device above will fly you to the north platform.
23 Go east while jumping over the gaps and then north. Then, move west over the gap and north past a demon until you find a chest and a dead end.

Demon King’s Castle Walkthrough (Part 3)

Castle: 3rd Stratum

1 Move forward and go east. Interact with the leyline fount.
2 Then, backtrack and go north until you reach a fork that goes north and northeast. Take the northeast path.
3 Work your way east for a cutscene. Then, enter the door to the east.
4 Go south and work your way counterclockwise until you come to the stairs that lead south.
5 Go up the stairs and head for the next door all the way to the far north of the map. Once you are through the door, follow the path down the stairs north and use the leyline fount on your left.
6 Continue down the stairs and through the door to the next area.
7 Go up the stairs to the west and you will come to a cross-shaped platform with red devices blowing wind in different directions.
8 Time the red devices when they are not blowing wind and head for the northeast platform with stairs going north.
9 Go up the stairs and follow the path north and as it bends to the west (there will be rows of red devices here so move carefully).
10 Keep going west until you approach a dead end with a red device blowing straight at you and another red device to your right. Use the one on the right to fly you to the walkway to the south.
11 You will see another pair of red devices (one blowing directly at you and another to your left). Time your approach just when the red device on the left is blowing to fly you to the platform to the north.
12 From here, follow the path going west and as it bends south (another pair of red devices are found here so move south immediately after the one directly blowing towards you stops).
13 Move along south and jump over the gap. Then, jump down to find a red device on the floor blowing wind up while two red devices above are blowing in different directions. Your goal is to get up on the upper platform to the south and follow it until it bends to a long straight path going west.
14 Go through the door at the end of the path to reach the 4th Stratum.

Demon King’s Castle Walkthrough (Part 4)

Castle: 4th Stratum

1 Approach the leyline fount ahead (Audience Chamber).
2 Make your way east through the door of the large chamber for a cutscene.
3 Prepare to battle Antioch.
4 Antioch will be accompanied by 2 Decarabia which you should take out as quickly as possible. Doing so reduces the number of actions the enemy side has. Use Light skills on Decarabia as it is weak to them.

Antioch’s only weakness is Elec. Since you must worry about dealing with the Decarabias first, you can simply bring out your Elec attackers once Antioch is alone.

Having Ice immunity is crucial for this fight as Antioch will constantly bombard you with the all-target Ice skill Mabufudyne which can instantly kill the main character if you are not prepared. Infuse him with the affinity granted by Koropokkuru’s Essence you can buy at Cadaver’s Hollow.

Be sure to have a demon with access to debuffs like Sukunda or Sukukaja. This is because Antioch can use a single-target physical skill that has a high chance of dealing critical damage.

5 Watch the cutscene.
