The Lies of P Puppet of the Future boss is one of the simplest bosses to face, even if it is an optional boss that you can also decide not to fight. Despite his large size, don't be intimidated: his attacks are all very slow and predictable, so you shouldn't have much trouble defeating him. Furthermore, if you also decide to eliminate the poisonous water present in his arena before engaging in the fight, the battle will be even simpler.
How to beat Puppet of the Future
In order to defeat this optional Lies of P boss, you can decide whether to eliminate the poison present in his arena or not. Although the battle is not particularly complex even if you do not decide to remove the poison, we still advise you to do so as it will greatly speed up the process. In fact, in this way, you won't have to worry about going back to non-contaminated areas so as not to suffer the effects of the status and you can focus entirely on the battle without any type of distraction.
Once the lever to remove the poison has been activated, in the next paragraph we will tell you exactly how to do it, defeating the Lies of P Puppet of the Future boss will be almost child's play. As mentioned previously, his attacks are very slow, and, in any case, he does not have a large amount of diversified attacks available in his arsenal. Furthermore, you will also have the advantage of being able to move freely throughout the entire arena, which will make it much easier for you to avoid his attacks and therefore not suffer damage.
The strategy that we suggest you follow in this clash, therefore, is actually very simple. Avoid his attacks by running and then counter with charged attacks, using a hit-and-run strategy. Since the Puppet of the Future has a lot of life and your attacks will not inflict much damage, we recommend that you also make use of the throwable items to inflict extra damage or, if you have them, you can also equip the Puppet Destroyer's Amulet.
The only real attack you will have to pay attention to is the one when he lifts both feet and then hits the ground, as it will create shock waves with a very wide range. However, even if you are close enough, you will still have time to escape and avoid this type of attack. At this point, return to focusing on the hit-and-run strategy.
Ultimately, we can say that defeating this Lies of P boss will not be difficult at all, on the contrary. Simply operate the lever beforehand to eliminate the poison from the arena and then adopt a defensive strategy to be able to defeat the Puppet of the Future without too many problems. Once defeated, you will receive a Quartz and a Radiant Ergo as a reward. Also, don't forget to collect the Booster Glaive weapon in the chest at the end of the arena.
How to drain the poison
As we have already said, facing the Puppet of the Future without having to worry about taking poison damage will make the fight even easier. For this reason, in this article, we have also decided to provide you with a guide on how to drain the poison present in the arena. Simply follow the steps below to be able to operate the lever.
As soon as you arrive at the center of the Venigni Works, you will find both Red Fox and Black Cat near a passage. Follow this passage, paying attention to the enemies, until you come to a room with some workshop puppets on the right and a pipe on the left. Here, you will have to follow the pipe to the end, but pay close attention to enemies that could take you by surprise. At the end of the corridor, an enemy will appear directly from the wall. Since it is a fairly difficult enemy to face, our advice is to open the door before fighting it. In the event of death, thus, you will have the shortcut at your disposal.
This enemy's attacks are actually quite easy to parry, you just have to pay attention to when he uses attacks to spread fire on the ground or his attack that cannot be blocked (you will recognize it because the enemy will turn red). However, with a little attention, you should be able to kill him. Once this is done, head towards the wall from which it came out and operate the lever to drain the poison.
