Get Portrait of a Boy
This step is crucial for securing the ending. Progress through the Malum District, vanquish the Black Rabbit Brotherhood, and then proceed to the Town Hall. Upon entering, head into the room located to the left of the staircase. Interact with the item therein to collect it, and subsequently, return it to Geppetto at Hotel Krat.
Set Sophia Free
As you advance through the game and approach the Ascension Bridge, you’ll encounter Laxasia the Complete. Defeat her and continue progressing until you reach a substantial door. Here, a brief cutscene will unfold, revealing Sophia constrained in a chair.
Initiate a conversation with Sophia, and when the option arises, select “Give her peace.” This pivotal moment will significantly impact your progress toward achieving the “Rise of P” ending. If your humanity level was sufficiently high, you’ll notice a subtle greying of your hair following this interaction, signifying that you’re on the right path toward this ending.
Defeat Simon Manus, Arm of God
This step marks the penultimate stage in your journey toward securing the “Rise of P” ending in Lies of P. While Simon presents a formidable challenge, it’s essential to remain attentive to the subtleties of his tactics to secure victory. After defeating him and engaging in a conversation, he will caution you to exercise caution around Geppetto. This warning serves as our cue for the ultimate phase of this ending. Your next move is to board the central arena elevator, propelling you towards the final step required to attain this ending.
Refuse to give your heart to Geppeto
Upon reaching the arena’s depths, you’ll encounter Geppetto standing solitary in the center of the expansive space. Approach him and engage in conversation. After a brief exchange, Geppetto will request that you relinquish your heart to him. To secure the “Rise of P” ending, it is imperative that you decline this request. At this juncture, Geppetto will express his disappointment, setting the stage for a showdown against the ultimate adversary of the game, the Nameless Puppet. Triumph over the Puppet, and when the credits begin to roll, you will have successfully achieved the “Rise of P” ending in Lies of P.
