Ultimate Overlord (Platinum Trophy) Guide
- 2/10 Difficulty with guide
- About 20-40 hours to platinum depending on how much text skipping you do.
- 9 generic endings required, one true ending, plus one Challenge Mode needed.
- Most trophies are easy to get. Most time consuming trophy is "Mr. Popular", which requires seeing 9 endings.
- All 'Lovey-dovey' endings REQUIRES 100% affection level with the girl in question in order to get the ending.
1. First Playthrough (Ashmedia Ending) - Follow the Easy First Playthrough Guide to easily beat the game and make yourself overpowered, which will also make future playthroughs a breeze. Make sure that the Overlord is at 100% affection level before defeating Trillion, otherwise you will not get the lovey-dovey ending.
2. Second Playthrough (True Ending) - Since you've got max EXP from your first playthrough, we will use this second playthrough to work towards two endings. For this playthrough, you need to be mindful of a couple of things:
- Must get 100% Affection level on each Overlord.
- Must get a lot of Affection points (around 150000K) on each Overlord. This is easy if you keep selecting Interact during the training session.
- The Overlord in Chapter 5 has a mini boss fight before Trillion. She needs to win this fight in order to not get locked out of the True End. The boss only has about 6 billion HP, which isn't anything to worry about with near maxed stats.
- At the start of Chapter 9, you're given a choice. Choose to 'Stop them!' to proceed to the True route. This will have you go straight to Chapter 10.
There are two routes you can take for this playthrough (and future playthroughs for that matter) with regards to killing Trillion, which are either:
Method 1: Beef up your first Overlord, then use her to severely weaken Trillion (down to about 10-50 billion HP), then just skip to the Overlord you want to get the ending for and have them finish Trillion off with the Final Strike Death Skill. Doing this will increase the wait time before a new Overlord can fight Trillion (to 10 weeks as opposed to 6), however.
Method 2: Get some major EXP with your first Overlords by overkilling Mokujin multiple times, then just skip to the Overlord you want by having Trillion's first form kill off any Overlords whose endings you're not aiming for, then having the Overlord you want beat Trillion by themselves. You'll get less wait time to fight Trillion, but you'll have to keep overkilling Mokujin occasionally with future Overlords, as only a fraction of EXP earned by a previous Overlord is carried over to the next one. It is also harder to get 9999 EXP from Mokujin the more you kill it.
I recommend Method 1 if you're planning on going up to Chapters 7+ for your playthrough, and Method 2 if going only up to Chapters 1 -6, If using Method 2, you'll probably want to alternate killing Mokujin every other chapter (Kill Mokujin a couple times in Chapter 1, skip him in Chapter 2, then kill him a couple times in Chapter 3) to make sure the next Overlords still start with 9999 EXP.
When you get to Chapter 10, it is very important you make a separate save 2 weeks before the Trillion fight and do not overwrite it. If you already saw the Hot Springs CG event for this Overlord, make a separate save right before the Trillion fight. Have the Overlord die to Trillion to enter the Final Chapter. Defeat Trillion in this chapter to obtain the True Ending, assuming all requirements were met. You can choose to make a clear game save here if you want, although if you just want the platinum, you will not be continuing from that save.
3. Faust Ending - Load up your save in Chapter 10 that's two weeks before fighting Trillion if you didn't get this chapter's Hot Spring event. If you have not seen the Hot Springs event in this chapter yet, keep going through the days until it shows up, resetting your save as needed. Once you get it, make sure Faust is at 100% affection level before proceeding, and have her kill Trillion. That's one more ending down. Make a clear save after and carry on from this file.
4. Challenge Mode - You can do this step any time, but it's better to get it out of the way. Upon loading a clear save file, select Challenge Mode,
then follow the Easy First Playthrough Guide once more to complete this easily. The main differences in Challenge Mode are the lack of story scenes (although you still need to go through the Prologue), the ability to choose between the 9 Overlords from the start, and each Overlord cannot retreat from the Trillion fight. The strategy outlined in the guide will work the same way for this mode. I do recommend picking only Demon Barrier for your Death Skills in this mode. You should be able to kill Trillion by your 3rd Overlord following this route. Fegor will probably be the easiest Overlord to do this with due to her innate Multi-Attack skill and starting ATK stats.

5. Seven More Playthroughs for Other Endings - Now you'll need to beat Trillion seven more times with any Overlords who haven't beaten it yet to gain the other lovey-dovey endings. This is the most tedious step. You'll also need to see each Overlord's Hot Spring event during their playthrough. Make sure the Overlord is at 100% affection level before defeating Trillion otherwise you won't get the ending.
Because of the Hot Springs event, it's best to start from the longest playthrough (Should be Chapter 9 in this case), and work your way down, making sure to see the Hot Spring event with the Overlord before beating Trillion. After you've seen each individual Overlord's Hot Spring event, you now have a chance to see a special Hot Springs event with your first Overlord. This will get you the Hot Springs Hotshot trophy.
Also, note that to reach Chapters 8 and 9, which is the only way to play as three of the Overlords, you must win the Chapter 5 mini-boss fight right before Trillion, so make sure to power up that chapter's Overlord before fighting Trillion.
Other than that, you should be familiar with how to setup your character and easily defeat Trillion at this point, so the only part that will present a challenge is the menu grind.
6. Cleanup - You may be missing a few trophies after this, all of which should only take a few minutes to achieve. Finish them off and claim your platinum!
How to get the Trophies
Watched all the lovey-dovey endings!
You'll need to get all 9 lovey-dovey ending CG images for this trophy. To get a lovey-dovey ending, you must kill Trillion with an Overlord while they have 100% affection level. You'll need to do this for all playable characters except Zeabolos.
Defeated Trillion with one of the first three Overlords!
Simply kill Trillion with either Purpell, Levia, or Mammon at the start of the game. Very easy to do during NG+, as you'll likely have 9999 EXP carried over, and can easily reach max stats in no time. You'll also need to do this for the Mr Popular trophy.
Cleared Challenge Mode!
Upon starting a NG+, you can choose to start Challenge Mode, In this mode, you start from scratch, and there are limited story scenes. You can choose any of the 9 Overlords from the start, but they cannot retreat from Trillion fights. If an Overlord gets Trillion to change forms, they can fight the next form.
To make things easier, follow the Easy First Playthrough Guide. It will take about 3 hours to beat following the route.
