* '''Straight''': To get the [[EverybodyLives Best Ending]], the FiveManBand has to follow twelve steps - two of them are "talk to certain [=NPCs=]", three are "go to a certain area", one is "check things before they're actually useful", one is "listen to rumours", and one is "make the right decisions". After that, turn down all the {{Optional Party Member}}s, let one of your party members have a fight with someone, talk to someone who is featured in the best ending exactly once, and then just continue until the event happens. None of this is hinted at anywhere and no-one could figure it out without a guide.
