Endings in Code Vein






  • Do not restore the vestiges of ANY of the successors.
  • Walk through the door after the battle against a successor without speaking to their petrified body (which can only be spoken to if their vestiges were restored prior to defeating them)


"Heirs" is considered to be the bad ending of the game. To achieve this, walk past each successor and exit through the gate during each of their post-fight memories without restoring them.


To Eternity




  • Restore both the vestiges and memory of at least one, but not all of, the successors.
  • Leave all but at least one of the successors in their petrified state
    • To do this, walk away from the petrified successor and pass through the door after viewing the memory of each successor boss.
    • So, to achieve this ending, restore the memory of 1-3 of the four successors


"To Eternity" is the neutral ending of the game. To obtain this ending, save at least one successor by restoring all their vestiges before fighting them, then restoring their memory after the battle

  • An example is when you face the Successor of the Throat. Before facing her, you'll need to restore all of the Harmonia vestiges in order to unlock the option to restore their memory.


Dweller in the Dark




  • Restore all vestiges of the successors before their respective boss fights, then, restore the memories of each successor by interacting with their petrified body during their memory.  DO NOT go through the large door at the end of each successors' memory.

"Dweller in the Dark" is often viewed as the true ending of the game. In order to achieve this ending, you'll need to save all four successors by restoring their memories after each battle against the successor. By doing that, you'll have to find their respective vestiges and repair them before heading into the boss fight. You'll find an Eos vestige outside of the crypt for each Successor after their battle, while the remaining are found in Provisional Government Center.

  • To unlock an additional scene to this ending, you must find all of the Eos vestiges and to restore them for Io. Be sure you've restored the Eos vestiges before facing the final boss.

        If you, for whatever reason, no clip through the game with the intention of getting the additional Io scene: You mustn't skip Queen's Knight Reborn. Otherwise you won't get it even with all the restored Eos vestiges.

          To get both versions of the dweller in the dark ending in a single playthrough can you restore all but one of the Eos vestiges or do you have to not restore a single one until you load the save before the boss fight?

            im honestly kinda disappointed in the Heirs ending. i was hoping for at least a decent ending cutscene where they deal with you. instead, you just... stand there. menacingly. then die. cmon mang.

              Dweller in the Dark isn't 100% accurate. You don't NEED to restore the vestiges, just collecting them is enough to release the petrified successors.

                Do you need to play ng+ to get determiner of fate trophy? I play 4 character to get each ending, but i still cant get the trophy.

                  Are you able to get the ‘normal’ Dwellers in the Dark ending in a new game plus if your first play-through was the ‘perfect’ Dwellers in the Dark?

                    On my first playthrough I met every single criteria for Dweller, but I forgot to restore the second successor cus I didn't even realize that was a mechanic at the time. I thought the game just decided they weren't going to come back for some reason. AAAAAA

                      To Eternity is a frustrating ending to get. On a single boss, I killed it before getting all of the vestiges, not realizing they were needed before the boss. Going this path both cheats you out of getting all of the Codes from all of the bosses, as well as the Code for saving all of the bosses. It's lose-lose.

                        It would be nice if it was clearer that Io's memories and no memories are 2 different ending since ps4 hidden triphy is "All endings" there is 4 not 3

                            Think that the normal "Dweller" ending is either bugged, or un-achievable on a NG+ run. Ran through the entire game, saved the successors, did not pick up any Eos vestiges (apart from the one that's forced on you) and still got the normal dweller in the dark ending.

                              Kind of an odd question, but since there are already some incorrect posts above (in the article) I was wondering, for the sake of "time saving" can I do every single EOS vestige *EXCEPT* for the very last one given by the very last Attendant at the very last door in the game? AKA every vestige in the game except for hers? - - Then beat the game and then just watch that *ONE* vestige? - - Seems a little odd that you can't obtain/view "ANY" of them to get the 2nd best ending. - - What would be the point of gathering them all then? - - Just don't want to fudge myself out of having to run the game again. I "accidently" got the perfect ending on my first try without a guide; so it's 4 playthroughs for me (Platinum)

                                  I recieved the Hades blood code from the "To Eternity" ending, not "Dweller in the Dark" which were my 1st and 3rd playthroughs respectively.

                                    Alright people. You can run through the game saving all the successors, but don't grab Eos vestiges ("or view them"). Beat the game and watch the cut scenes. You should get the "Dweller" ending w/o the reqs for Io's memories. Now load your file and grab the Eos vestiges and view them. Go slap The Virgin again. This should give you both of the Dweller endings w/o having to run through the game again. Also for the Queen bloodcode,you have to have done Io's memories.
