Battle of Twilight

From Ethene

Battle of Twilight is battle content where you are put up against 5 puppet performers in a theater setting who impersonate random bosses throughout the world of Astoltia (and beyond). These puppets keep their visual appearances, but gain access to the same skills of the bosses they're pretending to play as.

You have a choice of battling against these puppets in two different theaters. Theater 1, Demon's Nightmare, puts you up against bosses you've seen in Version 1 and Version 2, while Theater 2, Pukulandot, puts you up against bosses from Version 3 and Version 4. In terms of difficulty, Pukulandot is the more difficult theater to challenge.

The bosses that these puppets portray is random and changes semi-monthly according to the reset times schedule.


In order to participate in Battle of Twilight, you must:

How to start

Speak to Poet Woebergard in Port Town Lendor (South) at B-3.

You can choose to either bring your own party of companions (real players or AI) or you can choose to search for other party members.

Both Theater 1 and Theater 2 can be completed on each reset.

Time Limit

You have 15 minutes to defeat all 5 puppets.

Once the fight starts, you will fight each puppet one at a time until all 5 are defeated. Preparing the proper resistances and equipment is difficult, if not impossible, as the range of bosses they could assume is somewhat vast. Do your best!


Each puppet that is defeated will reward a gold treasure chest at the end of the encounter, for a maximum of 5. This content can be replayed, but will only reward red treasure chests after you have received the initial reward. Rewards are reset according to the reset times schedule.

In the event you don't defeat all 5, you can try again for the remaining chests that you weren't previously rewarded.

At the end of the encounter, each puppet will state which boss they were playing as.
