The Lunar Shadow Project works normally have multiple endings. This page will list them all.

Canon works

Lunar Shadow

None of the endings have official names yet; the names are unofficial.

  • Surrender (bad ending)

In this ending, the cataclysm foretold by the Castle Master comes to pass. None are known to have survived. This ending is obtained by leaving the castle at any time. As such, it is also the earliest ending obtainable.

  • Tears (bad ending)

Serenity dies in this ending, rather than kill Valkyrie X. This ending can only be obtained by defeating the first phase of the boss, and then deliberately get killed during the second phase.

  • Betrayal (bad ending)

In this ending, Serenity becomes evil and joins the Castle Master and Tranquility. This ending is obtained by defeating Ataraxis, obtaining the Dark Armor, then equipping it and heading to the Top Floor Throne Room. If Ilina Horton is present, the dialogue changes slightly.

  • Respite (normal ending)

In this ending, Serenity defeats the Castle Master and escapes the castle. Depending on events prior to the final boss fight, the dialogue will change to reflect whether or not Alexis was saved, whether or not Ilina was rescued from the Myst Zone and whether or not Shinica and Luna weren't fought.

  • Not Perplexed (good ending)

In this ending, Serenity conquered the Confusion Zone and defeated its guardian, Invidia, before escaping the crumbling castle. The ending is currently unobtainable.

  • Tainted Heroine (best ending)

The only difference between this ending and the "Not Perplexed" ending is that this ending is specific to 3-HP mode. It is currently unobtainable.

Non-canon works

Solar Shadow

  • Ending 1: TRUTH (good ending)

Selena Daria befriends Shadow Serenity, and they leave the woods together. Selena claims she is responsible for the original Serenity's death, and that she was possessed by the Castle Master. It is obtained by visiting four specific out-of-the-way objects before reaching the end of the woods: Serenity's grave in the first area, the prophetic rock in the second area, a specific journal page in the third area, and the skull shrine in the fourth area. If you are on track to get this ending, many messages, both from objects and Selena's dialogue, will be altered.

  • Ending 2: DESPAIR (bad ending)

The curse takes over Selena and she becomes Shadow Selena, never to be seen again. It is required by making some amount of progress through the woods, then run out of time.

  • Ending 3: FUTILITY (bad ending)

Selena is almost out of the woods, but is stopped by Shadow Serenity in one final room. Shadow Serenity orders her to go back into the woods, but Selena refuses, so Shadow Serenity kills her. It is obtained by reaching the end of the woods, missing at least one of the special objects required for Ending 1, then entering the final door before the clock hits 3AM.

  • Ending 4: RAVE (good ending)

Selena is about to exit the woods, but instead of the final room, Selena wakes up back in 2015 at a party celebrating Serenity's victory over the castle master. She then blacks out before waking up in Yes Town with a hangover the following morning. This ending is canon. It is obtained by reaching the end of the woods, then entering the final door after the clock hits 3AM, in the brief window of time before the screen fades to black and triggers Ending 2.

  • Ending 5: ESCAPE (good ending)

At the end of the woods, Selena finds a break in the trees and simply walks out, delighted to be free. It is obtained by reaching the end of the woods before the clock hits 2AM, then ignoring the final door and continue on to the right. If it is after 2AM, then the path to the right will be gone and the final door will be the only option.

  • Ending 6: DIABOLICAL (bad ending)

Selena stays in the woods and becomes Shadow Selena willingly. The castle master's ghost appears and thanks her for her loyalty, revealing that they had been working together. It is obtained by waiting in the starting room until time runs out.
