Slash mode only, novice not allowed.

To view the true ending, you must first defeat the True Last Boss in Slash mode.

The TLB is reached by not dying once in stages 1 to 6 (including the bosses). Then, the final boss of stage 7 will be changed to the TLB.

I don't know if continues are ok against the TLB, but you'll have so many lives and bombs, that there'll be no need to continue. So I advise against it.

The achievement will unlock after the ending in the Game Over screen. I don't know if skipping the ending will invalidate the achievement, so I guess it's safer to not press any buttons during it.

Some guidelines I used:
- Clear the first three stages without bombing
- Should not use more than 2 bombs total on stages 4 and 5; absolutely not more than 3; preferably none
- This way stage 6 will be started with at least 3 bombs; preferably more
- Must reach the stage 6 boss with 3 bombs + 1 from pickup = 4 bombs
- Stage 6 boss form 1: 1 bomb max. Form 2: 1 bomb max. Form 3: probably will need 2 bombs.

I practiced stage 6 in training until I passed it a few times starting with 4 bombs. Then, it was just a matter of reaching the stage without dying and without bombing too much.

For the ship, I used Type-1, because I felt I could kill the bosses slightly faster with it. I also changed my phantom strategy & orb/energy pickup gathering style a lot, as the objective here is survival, not high score.
