The Strongest (最強) Is Masaru`s scenario in Live A Live and takes place in the present day. It is purely combat based.
This chapter is unique among the others as it is made up of all battles and no field breaks between them. The Player also does not gain levels or get any new equipment in this scenario. The chapter pits you against six opponents seven once Odie Oldbright appears and the goal of each battle except Odie Oldbright's is to learn each opponents techniques. Each opponent has a set of two techniques Masaru can learn by letting them attack him with it where he will then automatically gain said ability to use It is possible to miss some techniques during this scenario but that is okay as most of them can be learned naturally through leveling up however a few aren`t and need to be gotten in this scenario, The gameplay of this scenario is much like that of Mega man in the style the opponents are chosen and Final Fantasy V`s blue magic system where one must first be attacked by the move they want to learn it.
Here is a list of the initial six opponents.
There is an extra third move that can be learned from Jackie Iaukea. The name is Earth-Rending Fury, also learnable by O-Robo and Masaru at Level 16. To get it, the player must be at diagonal from Jackie. If you see he is standing at the ground doing nothing, it's probably that he is gonna use the move. It is recommended to have full health while trying to learn it (if you don't, use Battle Cry to heal), as it does something near 266 damage or so.
After the initial six opponents are beaten Odie Oldbright the final opponent will then appear. Odie Oldbright kills off all Masaru`s previous opponents and claims that he is the strongest and faces Masaru. Odie Oldbright is not that hard and as long as one avoids being hit by his Acro DDO all should go well. A few uses of Tsuba followed by repeated use of Abise-Geri should make fast work of him.
Not necessarily an ending but can be seen through getting beaten in any match it will then show Masaru bruised and defeated and his opponent berates him a bit for his failure.
The only ending of this scenario. After he defeats Odie Oldbright Masaru walks up and stares out at the sea for a bit and then suddenly a strange man shows up and says that if he knocks Masaru down then he will be known as the strongest implying that there may be another fight at the end.
- The Defeated screen when Masaru loses to Odie is a spoof of Street Fighter II's continue screen.
- The Defeated portraits of the fighters and Masaru are also inspired by Street Fighter II.
- This chapter may be set in the year 1994, the same year Live a Live came out.
