Valkyrie Elysium: How to Get All Endings

It will come as absolutely no surprise that as a character action game in JRPG attire, Valkyrie Elysium has multiple unlockable endings. And if you’re the type to see everything in these kinds of games, you’ll want to know how to unlock them all.

One thing to note before diving deep into spoiler territory is that you can’t opt ​​out of any of the endings, and they can all be seen in a single playthrough. So if you’re here before you finish the game, maybe see the credits once and come back.

There are four endings in total in Valkyrie Elysium, each with a different set of final bosses and requirements to unlock them. This guide will tell you how to get them all.

Ending 1: Twilight of the Great Wolf

Chances are, this is the conclusion you’ll see first. If you play Chapter 9 without talking to Armand – the guy who shows up everywhere you go – you’ll face off against Fenrir and Hilde, serving your purpose as Valkyrie as set forth by Odin.

Ending 2: Twilight of the All-Father

As the title suggests, this time you will see your boss, the Ancient and Sovereign of Heaven, Odin. Who saw this coming, huh?

When you enter Chapter 9, head to the NPC marker showing Armand’s location. The purpose of the mysterious traveler becomes clear and he offers you a choice. This step is a factor in each of the game’s other three endings.

For this one, however, choose “Accept that you are a Valkyrie and do what needs to be done.” Now play the rest of the level as normal, but once you beat Fenrir and Hilde things will diverge; you must then face each of your precious Einherjar in turn before eliminating the big man himself.

Ending 3: A Momentary Escape

By far the easiest ending of the four – there’s no final boss for you in this ending. Go see Armand again, but this time opt for “Choose to be human and go with Armand”. And that’s all! Game over.

Ending 4: The True Ending

Yes, this one takes a bit more work, but what did you expect for the great finish? The first thing you need to do is make sure you’ve collected eight of Valkyrie Elysium’s nine Verdant Blossoms before you start Chapter 9 – the ninth is picked up in Chapter 9 itself. These are the corrupted versions of the Hollow Blossoms, the flower collectibles that litter the game.

The main difference being, at a glance, you can’t read the messages in them – until you’ve found them all, anyway. You can see on the level select screen where the ones you still need to find are, and they’re marked on the map with a glowing green dot.

Don’t forget to grab the Verdant Flower in Chapter 9, talk to Armand again and choose “Accept that you are a Valkyrie and do what needs to be done”, triggering the true ending. Advance to the end of the level as usual, but prepare for a different final challenge this time. First, you’ll fight enemies alongside Hilde, before facing Fenrir, then the human form of Odin. Everything ends with a secret battle against a boss: Ragnarok Odin.

There you go, you know how to unlock all of Valkyrie Elysium’s endings and have avoided Ragnarok in the process. Be sure to check out our upcoming/other guides to complete your collection of divine arts, runes, and weapons.
