Rise of P

rise of p ending lies of p wiki guide


Conditions to Unlock This Ending



LoP How to Unlock Rise of P Ending

To unlock or achieve the true ending "Rise of P", the vital condition throughout your playthrough is to acquire a high level of Humanity before you talk to Sophia at her true location in Area 11 after defeating Laxasia the Complete. There are various ways to add points to P's humanity by (1) Listening to Records at Hotel Krat and (2) selecting certain dialogue options.

P's Humanity is divided into levels where it shows a different message which will help you identify if you have been accumulating enough Humanity Points. The Humanity Level and the message that is associated with it are as follows:

  • Level 1: Your Springs are Reacting
  • Level 2: The Ergo is Whispering
  • Level 3: You Feel Warmth
  • Level 4: Your Heart is Pounding

You won't have to worry about Level 4 early in the game because this message only appears later after you've chosen "Give her Peace" during your interaction with Sophia at her true location in Area 11.

WARNING: Do not choose "Let her Live" when speaking to Sophia at her true location. This will automatically lock you out of unlocking the Rise of P Ending and you'll need to start again. Our goal by the time you interact with Sophia by choosing "Give her peace" is to trigger a cutscene where the color of P's hair changes to grey, which means you have gained enough Humanity and you are on the right track to achieving this ending. If P's hair doesn't change color, then that means you did not accumulate enough Humanity Points and you'll need to start over. Just to be sure, if you haven't been listening to the records you've acquired, make sure to listen to each one from start to end to gain some Humanity.

Here are the following interactions we've done in our playthrough that contributed to P's Humanity:

  • Whenever you get a new record, listen to it (from start to end) using the gramophone at Hotel Krat.
  • Area 2 (Inside the House on Elysion Boulevard): Answer "She's a Cute Baby" when you give the Broken Baby Puppet to the Weeping Woman during the quest, "Find my Baby".
  • Area 2 (Krat City Hall Courtyard): Your first encounter with Arlecchino by answering his riddles through a phone. Choose the option "Human".
  • Area 4 (Moonlight Town): You must defeat the Survivor mini-boss first at the Workshop Union to acquire the Stalker's Promise gesture. When you speak to The Atoned stalker standing next to the cable railway in Moonlight Town, choose the option "Give the Stalker's Greeting".
  • Area 4 (Path of Misery): You must acquire the Pray gesture first. When you have it, use the action in front of an altar with a statue of an angel with one wing on its right shoulder blade. See our Cecile or Return the Archbishop's Holy Mark page for the NPC's questline.
  • Area 4 (St. Frangelico Cathedral Chapel): When you first meet Alidoro, lie to him by choosing the option "Venigni Works". Fast-travel to Workshop Union Entrance Stargazer after defeating Fallen Archbishop Andreus to find him there and then lie to him again by choosing "Elysion Boulevard".
  • Area 5 (Malum District): Look for the phone and answer another riddle of Arlecchino with "Candle".
  • Area 6 (Rosa Isabelle Street Culvert): Help Julian the Gentleman and finish his questline "Find My Wife's Belongings". When you return to Julian, answer him with "I saw the Message she left, saying she loves you".
  • Hotel Krat: This interaction with Polendina only becomes available after you complete the questline of Julian the Gentleman and defeat the King of Puppets and Romeo King of Puppets. You need the Wedding Ring from Julian, so make sure you select "I saw the Message she left, saying she loves you" to acquire it. Go back to Hotel Krat and speak to Polendina near the fountain. Simply pick "Show the Wedding Ring".
  • After defeating the King of Puppets and Romeo King of Puppets and clearing Area 6, speak to Antonia in Hotel Krat and choose the dialogue option "Of course".
  • Area 7 (Grand Exhibition Gallery): Find Belle and speak to her.
  • Area 7 (Grand Exhibition Gallery): Look for the phone and answer another riddle of Arlecchino with "Egg".
  • Area 7 (Grand Exhibition Gallery): Defeat Champion Victor and when speaking to Simon Manus, choose "Hope of a cure".
  • Hotel Krat: After completing Area 7, speak to Polendina to learn about Antonia's illness and he'll ask you to speak to Giangio to ask for a cure. Speak to Giangio and give him a Gold Coin Fruit in exchange for the cure. Go back to Polendina and choose "Use the cure'.
  • Hotel Krat: After completing Area 7, speak to Eugenie to receive the Four-fingered Clove that you need to give to Alidoro who you'll find in the Barren Swamp of Area 8. After giving the glove, report back to Eugenie and choose "He was happy".
  • Hotel Krat: After completing Area 8, return to the hotel and speak to Antonia to acquire Humanity Points. This will only work if you get the cure and tell Polendina to "Use the cure".
  • Area 9 (Krat Central Station Street): Look for the phone and answer another riddle of Arlecchino with "Ergo".
  • After completing Area 9, go back to any phone used to communicate with Arlecchino, and when you speak to him choose "No" when he asks "Is Geppetto's creation a killer? CONFESS!" To learn more about Arlecchino and his riddles, please visit his page.
  • Upon clearing Area 9 and speaking to Antonia where you'll find the hotel to be attacked, speak to Belle to start her questline "Find my Partner". Complete it and when you report back to her, choose "He was killed in action fighting a puppet".
  • Defeat the Black Rabbit Brotherhood in Area 10 and speak to Venigni at the hotel. Choose "I couldn't hear" when he asks what or who was behind the Frenzy. It's important that you speak to him again after you answer to acquire the King of Puppets' Message. Next, use the hotel's stargazer and choose "Play the King of Puppets' Message".
  • Area 10 (Relic of Trismegistus Combat Field): Follow the linear path and you'll find "Alidoro". Speak to him and choose "Attack Alidoro" twice. Have Venigni decipher Alidoro's Cryptic Vessel and then speak to Eugenie. For this dialogue, choose "I think he was just a talented Stalker".
  • Area 11 (Black Seaside): When you first arrive here make sure to examine all of the statues. It's most likely that the only one that counts that adds up to Humanity is interacting with the one near the stargazer with an orange glow, but just to be sure, we recommend examining them all.
  • Area 11 (Arche Abbey Outer Wall): Open the last Trinity Sanctum where you'll find Arlecchino. Speak to him and choose "Human" when he asks if you are a puppet or a human being.
  • Area 11 (Arche Abbey): When you speak to Geppetto who's locked in a prison cell, he'll ask if he was a trustworthy father to P, choose "Yes".

Progress the game's story until you reach the Ascension Bridge, defeat Laxasia the Complete, talk to Sophia in her room, and choose the option "Give her peace". If you've acquired enough humanity, a cutscene will trigger that shows P's hair color changes to grey and the message "Your Heart is Pounding" will display after the cutscene. Continue through the main story until you reach the final boss at the Arch Abbey Cradle of the Gods and defeat Simon Manus, Awakened God.

Proceed to the final area "Under the Abyss", talk to Geppetto, and do not give him your Heart. This will trigger a boss fight against the Nameless Puppet. Simply defeat the boss to complete the game, and unlock the true ending. You'll acquire the "The First Puppet" trophy/achievement if you defeat the Nameless Puppet for the first time, including the "Rise of P" trophy/achievement.

After the credits roll, go back to Geppetto's Study in Hotel Krat and pick up the letter on his desk to read The Blue Butterfly's Letter. This will unlock the achievement/trophy: "The Story of the Blue Butterfly".

When the player reaches Hotel Krat for the first time, Sophia, an NPC who directly influences our protagonist will request Pinocchio to lie for her to get through to the hotel. According to lore, Puppets cannot lie however, Pinocchio is a special one. He can fabricate information on his own for a special reason. The only clear answer to this is the lore mentioned that Geppetto made him special compared to the other puppets.

Following the events in Hotel Krat, Pinocchio needed to lie for him to pass the hotel's defensive mechanism. Pinocchio informs the machine that he is human and not a puppet. Shortly after the lie, the springs will begin to "react", making a clear indication that lies do influence him. The machine accepted the answer willfully as regular Puppets can't lie. Pinocchio will be able to enter Hotel Krat and be welcomed by Sophia.

Otherwise, if you say "Puppet", the door will remain closed and you will not be allowed to enter Hotel Krat. You will have to try again and choose 'Human' as there is no other way to get inside Hotel Krat.

Venigni will then ask you if you were able to hear it and will ask you who the Creator is. If you choose to tell him the truth, Venigni will accept it. He urges that it is now important more than ever to save Geppetto so they would know the truth about why he did it.

You will have two options here, which depend on how you handled Sophia's request in the Ascension Bridge. You will get the same response regardless if you choose to tell him the truth, or a lie. He will respond that he supposed that it was what she wanted. He claims that her pure heart was a tonic for his pain and he tried to use the power to hold her, even though in the end, he couldn't.

As Simon's life fades away, his final words are to warn you of Geppetto.

        I'm still on the fence on if I should tell her. He was just another stalker or her brother...
        The guide also misses the point at wich you beat the boss in the cave he drops a record you get humanity from. Do you still acquire the same amount of humanity if you tell her it was her brother?

        • Anonymous

          You can miss at least 3 lies. I messed up Antonia and Polendina's dialogue and also told Geppetto no, but I still got level 4. Don't think there's much more room to mess it up, however. Heart was pounding only when I freed Sophia.

          • I just don't get why Geppetto calls the nameless puppet a "real boy". A cadaver stuffed with puppet parts is a poor excuse for a revived son, especially when he already made another better puppet. What was the point of removing the heart from one puppet to another?

            Also, it was said that the arm of god, note that it's a left arm, was an ingredient, but after the ending we still have our old a legion arm...

              For The FREE FROM THE PUPPET STRING ending you still need enought humanity to refuse.
              Even if you never did a thing in The run, with a couple of records, The last memory in red at beach, Arlecchino riddles and Julian and weeping woman quests, you can get enought (and probable more of what it really needs) humanity to refuse G.

              I did this in NG++ for my last ending

              • Anonymous

                I have no idea if missing this would have any bearing on which ending you receive or if it's totally unrelated, but I figured it may be worth mentioning since at least one person (me, the idiot) missed it during my first playthrough and had a strange outcome.

                In my first run, P's hair did not change after giving Sophia peace even with level 3 humanity. I refused Geppetto, as well. I ended up with FFTPS. However, I started NG+ and eventually discovered that I somehow completely missed the Saintess of Mercy statue (original respec area) door that can be unlocked after Champion Victor's fight.

                Also, level 4 humanity with the "your heart is pounding" message CAN be achieved before you reach Sophia's body in the Abbey.

                    The choice with tthe ring with Polendina - if you have seen the love between a puppet and a human, then telling there is no such thing should the the LIE. The guide says it's truth. But also in the same paragraph is says "By choosing to lie, you will receive 1x Gemini Iron Protection". What. Th. ****.

                    How does it make any sense? You straight up LIE about there being no love and the game takes it as truth? I just can't,

                      Note on this part.
                      "Area 10 (Relic of Trismegistus Combat Field): Follow the linear path and you'll find "Alidoro". Speak to him and choose "Attack Alidoro" twice. Have Venigni decipher Alidoro's Cryptic Vessel and then speak to Eugenie. For this dialogue, choose "I think he was just a talented Stalker"."

                      This is not entirely correct. ANY of the dialogue choice you choose for Eugenie would give you +2 humanity but in a different manner. Both choice will give you +1 through the disc it gives you (different disc depends on the choice). The choice above would give you another +1 because its a lie, but the choice to tell her the truth will still give you +1 due to its outcome. An outcome that in my personal opinion is a better ending for her quest line

                          So where the Golden Lie is concerned, I lied for every interaction except the first meeting with "Alidoro" and listened to every record as I got them. After freeing Sophia I returned to the hotel to see if I could get the weapon. Unfortunately, it was fully grown but had not begun to glow. However, I remembered that I forgot to pray at the statue and there was one more record that I haven't gotten yet, so once I prayed and listened to the last record, I sat at the Stargazer and returned to the weapon to find it glowing. I believe it was after the third time I got the message stating, "Your heart is pounding" that it started glowing. So I was able to get the Golden Lie before releasing Geppetto. Unfortunately, I wasted all my upgrade materials on other special weapons that I never use lol so I have to wait to fully upgrade it. But I do like it's moveset.

                                There is a secret 4th ending!!! It is where P goes nuts and changes his name to Pistachio. He really comes out of his shell. He marries a giant walnut lady and they keep trying to have kids but it just results in a string of miscarriages and they commit sudoku together. Awesome ending.

                                  "Free from the Puppet String" doesn't seem to require letting Sophia live though. i've watched Asmongold playthrough, he 'gave her peace' and also said that to Simon, yet he got this ending.
                                  Maybe the only actual requirement is lower humanity? His was at level 3.

                                    With the Dark Souls games I got all endings in one playthrough using cloud saves. Sounds like I can't do that with Lies of P. Oh well, at least I have incentive to do NG+.

                                      I just wasted fking HOURS doing a whole play through telling the 'truth' because apparently i need "low" humanity to get "rise of the P" ending - however, with low humanity you are NOT given an option to refuse geppeto at the end, "resfuse" is literally not even an option you can pick.

                                        Wow, got rise of p on my first playthrough, neat, didn't get enough humanity for the weapon from the portrait though, RIP

                                          I don't think you need low humanity to get the freed from the puppet strings achievement. In my NG+ playthrough, after answering "I liberated her from the arche abbey" to Simon's question I knew I had high humanity when the screen read "your heart is pounding". I even got the golden lie prior to doing this on the same playthrough.

                                          The ONLY thing I did different from my first playthrough (in which I got the "rise of p" achievement)was let Sophia live instead of giving her peace.

                                            ah man, I almost got the good ending... I was thinking, maybe I wont give her peace yet, maybe I can just free her after the big boss is dead, and if I cant, I can give her peace later, I dont have to be hasty about it.... but I did....you cant give her peace anymore and get locked OTL.... oh well, new game plus.

                                              Isn't EUGENIE's last choice about his brother also counted as Lies vs Truths paths?
                                              This has bothered me so much since I encounter the bug around her story that the talking oder in my truths round messed up "The Story of a Stranger Girl" trophy.
                                              I'm not sure if the choice about gloves affect the last one or not, which may require a complete new NG+.

                                                Man this information including guide to get Golden Stick. This item requires you have to lie all conversation that you can. So yes if you just want rise of p ending you don’t need to follow all of this but if you need golden stick in one playthrough, you need to follow this guide.

                                                  I got the Rise of P ending even though I told Simon Manus that "I gave her peace", so it isn't a core requirement for the ending; just another Humanity event. The important things are that you Give her peace and then refuse to give your heart to Geppetto and fight Nameless Puppet.

                                                    I suspect that you can gage your level of humanity by the length of P's nose on his portrait in Gepetto's workshop.

                                                      1. Try to tell the Truth as much a possible. Avoid getting to much humanity, but get enough to get the "Refuse" choice at the end.
                                                      2. Keep Sophia alive and DON'T "give her peace"!

                                                        I told all lies except for 4 and i still got the rise of p ending & Golden lie :
                                                        1- told Venigni that the name was Geppetto.
                                                        2- told Eugenie that the hound was her brother ( she gave me a record that i listened to ).
                                                        3- told Geppetto "No" when he asked about being trustworthy.
                                                        4- told Simon that i gave Sophia peace ( I gave her peace )

                                                        I bought & listened to an extra record from the merchant in Malum district ( before the brotherhood fight ) when i first met him.

                                                          The ending you get is based on the amount of Humanity you have. If you tell the truth the whole time you get locked out of being able to refuse at the end.

                                                              I believe FREE FROM THE PUPPET STRING and RISE OF P have similar approach but except the humanity. RISE OF P requires you to have high humanity so when Geppetto die, you cry, thus he know that you care about him and say you are good son.

                                                                I did a 100% truth playthrough (answering riddles wrong and everything) and can say your only option for an ending will be the bad/normal ending of Real Boy.

                                                                YOU NEED ENOUGH HUMANITY FOR THE OPTION TO REFUSE GEPETTO TO APPEAR.

                                                                So all the mainstream guides still have it wrong. In short:

                                                                Free from puppet string - choose to let Sophia live then have enough humanity and refuse Gepetto.

                                                                Rise of P - choose to give Sophia peace instead, then have enough humanity to refuse Gepetto.

                                                                I don't know what that threshold is to "have enough" but having full humanity (aka lying alot, listening to records etc) only really matters for obtaining the Golden Lie special weapon.

                                                                Interesting to see which mainstream guide will finally get it correct. But this FAKE NEWS about a BS "Truth" playthrough to obtain one of the two "Good" endings needs to be abolished ASAP!

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • I gave Sofia peace and told Magnus that I've given her peace by mistake but I still got the Rise of P ending after refusing to give my heart to Geppetto and defeating the Nameless Puppet. But I was already human before I fought Magnus, at least I think so because I could pull out the weapon from the image. So I think if you get the weapon before the Magnus fight you'll get the Rise of P ending no matter what you tell Magnus, as long as you refuse to give your heart.

                                                                      • Anonymous

I've done three separate playhtroughs, two on NG+ and one on NG, telling only the truth and rushing through as fast as possible so as not to waste time. When I get to Under the Abyss, the option to refuse to give Geppetto my heart is not present. I'm getting really frustrated and am wondering how to get that option to appear.

In fact, I was able to get it on NG+ after lying at pretty much every opportunity throughout the game, while even receiving the Golden Lie. The only thing that seems to be integral for this ending is choosing to let Sophia live once you find her in the tower.

I did NOT play the piano, nor did I even fight simon and I could pluck the golden lie. It is based strictly on your humanity. After my hair turned grey and I put butterfly girl out of her misery, it was enough to get the weapon.

                                                                                            - Telling Lies doesn't always gives you more humanity points, there are select situations where telling the truth makes you more human than lying does
                                                                                            ^ (This is the most important one, since most guides tell you to tell truths or tell lies which is wrong for gaining/not gaining humanity)
                                                                                            - Listening to records on subsequent playthroughs doesn't give you humanity points unless you collected them on that specific run, which you can tell if you see a record with the box covering the left half of the record, that means if u play that record you'll gain humanity points
                                                                                            - Listening to NG+ gold records doesn't give humanity points
                                                                                            - You don't need to tell all lies or all truths, each time you do a "human" act you gain humanity points, and if your hair turns grey after Sophia, you gain access to humanity endings. And if you told a few lies but almost all truths (puppet like) then you'll gain access to the free from strings ending
                                                                                            - Doing all 5 riddles is a great way to gain humanity, and answering riddles correctly on a truth run can ruin your run by making you gain humanity

                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                              So I told like 80% lies and 20% truth (requisition for Rise of P ending), choosed "Let her live" and "I liberated her from Arche Abbey" (which are the requisitions for Free From the Puppet String ending) options for Sophia, also delivered the Portrait of a Boy (requisition for Rise of P ending), do I unlock Rise of P or Free From the Puppet String if I refuse to give Geppetto the heart?

                                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                                I read that at the end in the post-credits scenes at the end of Rise of P someone says that Pinocchio has the key to immortality.
                                                                                                I also asked others if Pinocchio lives or dies in the ending of Rise of P, everyone said that Pinocchio does live in this ending. I also asked if in this ending Pinocchio is still a puppet or if he became human, some said that Pinocchio became human and others that he is still a puppet because (this is what I understood from the comments):

                                                                                                The game will have a second part so Pinocchio will continue to be an immortal puppet.
                                                                                                Pinocchio was able to continue using ergo after Geppetto's death, Pinocchio revived Sofia using part of her ergo, not all of it. That's why Pinocchio remains an immortal puppet
                                                                                                Furthermore, it is impossible that Pinocchio, who is an immortal puppet built by Geppetto, could have become human just by using part of his power to revive Sofia.
                                                                                                Furthermore, there is no way that Pinocchio, who is an immortal puppet built by Geppetto, could have become human just by using some of his power to revive Sofia.

                                                                                                Is Pinocchio still an immortal puppet in the ending of Rise of P?
                                                                                                If Pinocchio became human in this ending, would he still be immortal?

                                                                                                • Anonymous

I got Rise of P but I didn't get the Story of the blue butterfly even though I picked up her letter, I just didn't read it...

                                                                                                      #spoiler# I get my hair white after let rest sophia.

                                                                                                      Back to the hotel and the weapon was already there for me, even after defeat Simus or the puppet boss.

                                                                                                      Didnt even lisent the sophia record and skiping 3 lies during my playtrough (one by mistake, and it cost me a gesture and so a queart for quest #9 ...... T^T)

                                                                                                      A little tip to get extra humanity, pray at the statue in the Cathedral before the bridge once you have the gesture "pray" (you get it reading the Cecile note). Is the anything i did to get extra humanity i think . . . (also didnt fight black cat or red fox, but my string dosnt get warmed so i think it dosnt count)

                                                                                                      • Anonymous

You can lie all game, but if you do other things that make you human then you'll edge towards the other ending. You should honestly play this game twice: once however you want (and cop whatever ending you get by refusing), and again but being picky about what you do to get the other ending.

                                                                                                            Why Geppetto son have artificial arm? Is it his son?
                                                                                                            Or is it P who actually was resurrected by Hand of God from Simon Manus in some form of perfect puppet?
                                                                                                            If it's P for what reason he comes to Geppetto and why blood on his cloth? Did he slay Geppetto son and he is next?

                                                                                                              • I could be wrong, but shouldn't the image being used for "Free From the Puppet String" be on "Rise of P" instead? From what I've seen of the endings, FFtPS ends right when Geppetto dies, while RoP continues on to the scene with Sofia.

                                                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                                                  1.-In one Geppetto kills Pinocchio by taking his heart and uses it to revive his son.
                                                                                                                  2.-In another Pinocchio refuses to give his heart to Geppetto but still dies when he revives Sofia.
                                                                                                                  3.-In the last Pinocchio refuses to give him his heart and Geppetto sacrifices himself so that Pinocchio lives but Geppetto tells him that he is a useless puppet. This is the only ending in which Pinocchio lives in the end and I understand that he is immortal (he does not die of old age).

                                                                                                                  How do I get the last ending where Pinocchio lives and what is the name of ending 3 where Pinocchio lives?
                                                                                                                  I know the ending where Geppetto kills Pinocchio is called REAL BOY but I got confused with the rest. What are endings 2 and 3 called?
