4.9 - Epilogue: Serenade (The Adventure Ends)
- Settling It Once And For All -
Ok, you've gone and got your star. Head to Hades Isle and go to the
last room in the cave to find Chaud. Talk to Chaud to fight Protoman.
[Navi Battle: Protoman]
Attacks: Uses a HeroSwrd. 100 Damage
Appears in front of you and uses WideSwrd. 100 Damage
Uses an AirSwrd. 100 Damage
Strategy: Stay in the center to easily dodge the AirSwrd. When he moves
forward for WideSwrd, move forward. If he uses HeroSwrd, go down and
back one space.
You'll receive a Protoman B for winning.
- BugFrags -
Most of the rest of your time playing will be spent in the secret
areas. To get there, you'll need a Giga Class chip, first of all. Go to
the Bugfrag Trader in Undernet 2 by jacking into the gargoyle on Hades
Isle and going through the warp. Give him 200 BugFrags for a FoldrBak,
which is the Giga Class chip. If you need BugFrags, go to Dex and fight
GutsMan, then use a Navi chip to defeat him while he's using an attack.
You'll get 10 BugFrags for it.
- Dare To Prepare -
To get past a lot of security cubes in later areas, you'll need to
defeat all of the Alpha and Beta Navis. Check out that section of the
FAQ. You'll also want to do all the jobs and get all the virus families
(except for Scuttle), so do those too. Go to the WWW base and go behind
the wall after getting off the boat. Jack in and get the BMD to receive
the NC program Collect, which makes you always get a chip from battles.
Lastly, you'll want all of the Standard chips to get to the UnderKing.
- Hammer -
To get to Undernet 6, go to Undernet 5 via the Under Square warp and go
right, then take a left and take the farther left. Go to the next big
platform and go back, then go up the stairs and head to the entrance to
Undernet 6. Go to the left belt going up, then take the one going down
to your left. Go left twice and open Flamman's cube, then take the next
two up belts and go to Undernet 7. Open Drillman's cube to the left,
then go up and left to get the Hammer, which will serve you well in the
- Das Secret -
Head to the Ura Inn bath and go behind to the Undernet server. Jack in
and go up to the hole, then press A in front of it to be transported to
the Secret areas. In the secret areas are security systems that you can
hack; you must defeat them in the numbered order, dealing each 250
damage in one hit. If two have the same number, they must be destroyed
at the same time. Last point: if you break the monolith in the area
with the hammer, be prepared for ten virus battles.
- Darkman -
Go down and right, then follow the path to a locked door. If you have
140 Standard chips in your library, you may pass. You'll face Darkman.
[Navi Battle: Darkman]
Attacks: Turns red and shoots fire. 100 Damage
Turns blue and shoots an IceWave. 100 Damage
Turns yellow and uses a Sensor. 100 Damage
Creates holes that bats fly out of. 50 Damage
Creates a Shadow enemy. 100 Damage
Strategy: All of his attacks are fairly easy to avoid.
With Darkman out of the way, go on to Secret 2.
- Japanman -
Go forward, then left at the teleporter and break the monolith. After
the virus battles, go forward into the next teleporter. Go down the
middle path and hack the security system. Go into another teleporter,
then take the first left and go up to the door. If you have a Giga
chip, you can go through, where you'll fight Japanman.
[Navi Battle: Japanman]
Attacks: Shoots spear heads at you. 150 Damage
Shoots a spear wave. 50 Damage
Spins his spear; shoots an energy wave if struck. 150 Damage
Backup - Small men with spears steal the top and bottom rows.
Strategy: The attacks are very easy to avoid. Attack the Backup men to
- The UnderKing -
Go forward and then hack the security system. Go down and break the
monolith, then fight the viruses. Go left and follow the path, then go
up the stairs to the Door of Honor. If you have all of the Standard
chips in your library (meaning the blue star), you can go through.
You'll then challenge the UnderKing, Serenade.
[Navi Battle: Serenade]
Attacks: Shoots an energy ball that moves like an IceWave. 100 Damage
If hit, will shoot an energy wave. 100 Damage
A flash appears in front of him and random spaces are
attacked. 100 Damage
Strategy: There is only one time you can damage Serenade, and that's
while he does the last attack; your buster does not, repeat, DOES NOT
affect him during this attack; neither do Standard chips. You can only
use Mega class chips, or chips like AreaGrab or Prism, so your Giga
class chip should definitely be FoldrBak. The best way to win is to
confine Serenade to one panel; at that point, he is damaged by
anything, anytime. The energy ball is easily dodged. LifeAura will stop
all of his attacks.
When you defeat Serenade, he'll praise you and give you Rank 1. He'll
also say that He is trying to return, then leave. Now that you're the
new King of the Undernet, head to Undernet 7. Go right and inspect the
curtain, then it will disappear. Behind it is a Guardian O. Go to the
other side and feed the Spikey 50 BugFrags to pass. Go inspect the
curtain, then go past and get the HPMemory.
- His Return -
Right now you're thinking, "Wait! Aren't I done?" No way, Jose. Return
to the entrance to Secret Area 3 and go onto the very small bridge.
Take the second left to find a BugFrag trader. Go get 300 BugFrags
(ugh) and feed them all to the trader, and it will emit a large growl.
Leave the secret areas, then return to the BugFrag trader. After some
dramatic cues, Bass will appear. He remembers not his name and searches
only for power. You'll then do battle.
[Navi Battle: BassGS]
Attacks: Shoots an energy ball. 300 Damage
Shoots several energy balls. 300 Damage
Shoots a bunch of energy balls. 200 Damage
Appears in front of you and breaks the line you are on. 100
2 claws drop, trying to hit you, then Bass uses Gospel's
breath. 300 Damage
Strategy: As you may have noticed, this guy does a ton of damage with
each attack. Snctuary + LifeAura makes you invincible to all of his
attacks, however, and thankfully, the stun/no aura rule still applies;
if you stun him at the right time, he won't put his aura back up.
Remember to have a FoldrBak to replenish Snctuary and LifeAura, and for
God's sake, equip an UnderSht.
Upon defeating him, you'll receive a Bass+ X. He'll muse, and then
disappear. Lan will joke about taking over Cyberworld (SO awesome if he
did), then you'll be done. Main story's over. But we still have a
couple of things to do.
- Giga Galore -
Get an Unlocker subchip, then go to Undernet 7. Go to where you got the
Hammer, then inspect the door, and it will crumble, as you are the new
champion. Go up the stairs and use Unlocker to get GigFldr1, which lets
you hold 2 Giga Chips instead of one.
- The Ultimate Program -
Go to where the BugFrag trader is in Secret Area 3. Run along the back
edge of the platform to find an invisible path. It will lead to a
monolith. SAVE and break it, then prepare for the hardest battle series

My advice: preset a GrassStg, a MetlStge or a Snctuary.
If you survived, go forward and get the NC program HubBatc. HubBatc
activates the following programs: SuperArmor, BreakBuster, BreakCharge,
Custom1, MegaFolder1, AirShoes, FloatShoes, ShadowShoes, and Shield. It
also causes a glitch that cuts your HP in half, but it can be stopped
