The Battle with Lucifer
Dante will then drop down to another area. You now encounter Lucifer. After some dialog the battle begins.
To defeat Lucifer, there are three phases to complete. The first one, you will fight a gigantic looking Lucifer that has some stunning attacks with his breath. Stun him by using the Holy Cross at his forehead. Then attack the center of his chest. After enough damage has been done, a brief dialog commences. After this Lucifer emerges from the chest of the gigantic version of himself.
In this phase of the battle, Lucifer will use different types of fire attacks to damage Dante. He is also able to move quickly back and forth to different areas of the platform. Use whatever methods you like to cause damage. However, Lucifer is able to block Holy Cross on occasion so be careful. Lucifer will also move up into the air for short amounts of time in this phase. When Lucifer’s health bar is almost completely depleted, the final phase of the battle begins.
This time several jump points will be located around the platform. Lucifer himself is high above with a deadly flame beneath him. You will need to use the jump point to get close enough to Lucifer to grab him. Start with the jump point on the right. Press RB. As soon as you connect to this platform immediately press RB again. Repeat this process until you get to the center. Once you press RB to grab onto Lucifer, watch out for an animated sequence of Xbox buttons. Follow this exactly or you will need to jump back up to Lucifer again.
Once you have damaged Lucifer enough the battle ends. A dialog follows. Lucifer tells Dante he cannot go back into the real world because he is already dead. Dante uses all of the souls he has freed to absolve himself from hell. But is he? In the end it seems like he is free, since he encounters Beatrice in spirit form. However, Dante is not in heaven. He is in purgatory. To be continued in a future game… Congratulations, you have beaten the Dante’s Inferno game!
