    1. This is it, the big confrontation between Alpha Patroklos and Pyrrha Omega. Episode 15 offered a challenge, but this is where the fights will take on a whole new challenge. Every remaining battle in Story Mode will be significantly more difficult at this Episode. Keep practicing those Just Guards, and nail your inputs with Alpha Patroklos. If you haven’t already, take some time out to train with Alpha Patroklos.
    2. Pyrrha Omega herself is a powerful fighter, with good mid-to-close range moves that cover a wide area of terrain at once. Even her simplest moves can connect with her opponents. A simple vertical attack combo can hit opponents trying to side-step to the right, it’s best to just guard and follow-up with an attack string of your own.
    3. Some of Pyrrha Omega’s most consistent attacks are Nemesis Strike and the Styx Cannon, both deadly forward-vertical slashes. Both attacks have an extended reach, far enough to catch you at medium range. Both of these attacks land mid, making it easy to guard as long as it doesn’t catch you unprepared.
    4. Both of the above attacks are fairly unsafe, giving you a good opening if you’re patient and can wait for Pyrrha to attempt an attack. Keep out of close range, and she’s sure to try one out of these two attacks.
    5. Both attacks will also drop you on your back. Roll left or right, jump back up, or use a horizontal attack while rising to land a high attack.
    6. Pyrrha Omega will stick mostly to high and mid attacks, she’ll never catch you in a deadly combo with low attacks. Use Alpha Patroklos’ Dawn Stance to duck under most of her usual ranged combos, just like the Styx Cannon.
    7. Remember that Pyrrha Omega doesn’t have many good horizontal attacks either, giving you plenty of side-step opportunities. Just remember that Nemesis Strike will still hit.
