Battle FantasiaPerfect HeroThe Perfect Hero achievement in Battle Fantasia worth 642 pointsCan you survive the Apocalypse Flame?

In order to survive the Apocalypse Flame you must defeat the End of Deathbringer with a PERFECT on Very Hard difficulty while also parrying all 22-hits of his Apocalypse Flame move during the last fight of Arcade Mode. Make sure you set the difficulty to Very Hard and if you want, re-configure the Gachi (parry) button to something more comfortable such as cn_B-button. This is not a terribly difficult achievement but it will take practice and a ton of continues so I'll break it down.

End of Deathbringer Explained
For starters, his CPU intelligence is actually quite poor. Even on VERY HARD difficulty his actions are still quite comparable to the likes of EASY difficulty. But other than that he can be random. For the most part he will do a few flaming slashes at times that you can see coming way ahead of time so all you have to do is back dash to avoid them. He rarely jumps and if he does he'll do random strikes that are easily avoidable. There are 2 moves to focus on from him: his Curser Destrier (which is the move where he does a Joust like charge at you) and his Apocalypse Flame super move. These are the two moves you must nearly master in parrying if you desire to survive the Apocalypse Flame! Sometimes he will parry you but this is pretty random and you should only be attacking him when he's recovering from an attack anything outside of that is too risky, back off! Just make sure that when the fight starts to back dash immediately as far as you can from him and wait for him to charge at you, this is the time to parry the move and get 3 easy specials. After that it's all about remaining unharmed and entering heat mode while you wail on him until he's dead. There's a video of it being done with multiple characters below:

Parrying the Cursed Destrier(Charge Attack)
It's imperative to familiarize yourself with the 3 Forms of this move. There is one that does 7-Hits, 8-Hits, and 9-Hits when you parry all of them. Let me break down the way this move is parried.

(Deathbringer charges back, then yells out: "Ike Zo") This is where he lunges at you. As soon as his sword touches you press cn_RB like so: Each gachi is like half a second apart then there will be a short pause then 2 more hits as he goes for an uppercut. The uppercut is always simply 2 extra parries and is easy to memorize in timing.

Note: Depending on who you use sometimes while EOD goes for the uppercut it can be 3 parries because of extra hit-boxes like if you were using Donvalve for example or Deathbringer.

Now the problem is that there are two other forms he does. Sometimes he will do:

- (7 Hitter) then at other times he will do

- (8 Hitter) and finally there's his

- (9 Hitter) and that's all 3 versions of it.

There doesn't seem to be a certain pattern it seems pretty random and I have been unable to decipher when he will be going for 7,8 or 9 hit Cursed Destrier. I have tried discerning the pitch of his voice when he yells out: "Ika Zo" but no luck that's pretty random as well. I even looked at his hoove placement as he is about to land where he pauses but this can't be foretold as by then you are already trying to gachi an extra hit when you are actually suppose to be pausing and it screws you up and you get hit. But anyways these are the 3 forms of his charge attack and you may want to learn the timing for these if you want to survive the Apocalypse flame.

If you happen to be using Deathbringer when going for this achievement there are only 2 forms of the charge there's a 8 and 9 hit version which gives you a 50% chance of parrying it when you guess. So when parrying it with Deathbringer the rhythm will be:

- (8 hitter)

- (9 hitter)

This is much easier than when using Urs. However, there is another tip posted by a 360a contributor that helps as well listed below. If you merely JUMP when he draws his sword back, you only have to keep the rhythm of the dash attack normally and usually by 3-4 hits, he passes under you, eliminating the variable 7-9 hit!

How to parry the Apocalypse Flame
1. Make sure your character is sitting still before you attempt to parry this
2. Once you have parried this make sure Deathbringer does not Power up to Stage 1 again! Try heating up and hitting him to prevent this when he's going to Stage 2.
3. As you parry it look at your characters parry animation every time they do it press gachi just as they repeat the animation for easy timing!
4. Try to stay focused when parrying this move have no distractions in the room.
5. Don't count the parries, well at least I didn't because if I did it screwed me up, so just parry until the move is over then hit your super or special move against him as he's recovering. Timing the parry can be found in the video below:

Now you may not always parry this move and it's okay but you should have less of a problem parrying it than predicting the Cursed Destrier attacks.

I also have a in-depth solution for this achievement but it would be much easier to just link people to my full guide for Perfect Hero which can be found below.
