Chance for an Ending

If you defeat Lavos now, you will see the ending "Beyond Time".

Prepare for Sidequests

After the cutscene, you return to the End of Time.

Laruba Nu

Before you do the side-quests, go to the Laruba Ruins in 65,000,000 B.C. There is a Nu all the way at the top. Talk to it to get the SilverRock, which enables the Spin Strike triple tech for Robo, Frog, and Ayla. The Nu will also change the name of whichever character is in the lead.

Ruby Armor

Also in 65,000,000 B.C., the trading hut is now offering Ruby Armors, which reduce fire damage by 80%. To get one, you need 10 each of all of the four trading items. If you don't have enough, you can fight the Nu when it rains in the Hunting Range, as explained in Footsteps! Follow!

Side Quests

Back at the End of Time, you talk to the old man if you want to get clues about the different side quests that are available. They are listed below.

Moving On

When you are ready, you can challenge the optional final dungeon, or go directly to the final boss.
