Hall of Caresses is the 4th and final map in Prince of the Netherworld, the 1st episode of Disgaea: Hour of Darkness.


Having ventured through Vyers Castle, looting as they go, Laharl and Etna finally encounter the owner of the castle: Vyers, self-styled "Dark Adonis". Vyers compliments Laharl on his choice to attack him first, but is immediately rebuffed and insulted as a mere "Mid-Boss". Infuriated, he strikes out at Laharl.


The enemies on the Red Geo Panels can not only attack twice, but have their stats multiplied by 6. To get rid of this annoyance, you will need two characters: A Mage/Skull that can fire their spell in a 3-panel straight line, (Third option in range selection) and/or a Sword-user that knows Blade Rush. Have these two characters thrown, the Sword-user attacking first in a 2-hit Combo. If done correctly, you should get rid of two, if not all three symbols on the first turn. After that's done, the enemies must be destroyed. Focus on the Ghosts first, since they swarm the area near the Base Panel. Then defeat the two enemies that were originally powered. The two Sword-using Warriors will most likely advance. Be aware that they know Blade Rush as well. Therefore, do not arrange your characters in a straight line. Mid-Boss will be the final enemy. Note that his special ability Adonic Shot fires in a straight line. Also note his great Countering ability. In order to kill him properly, Laharl and Etna should attack with any skills gained from their weapons, with other characters acting as support.

Upon revisiting this map, An Axe-toting Ninja takes Mid-Boss's place, but the strategy remains the same. (Just take note of the Ninja's high evasion rate.)


  • Vyers is always referred to as "Mid-Boss" after this episode.
  • In Etna Mode, a Prinny notes that Vyers was voted 'Most Likely to Earn a Degrading Name' in the Prinny Times.


In Laharl's Story, you can get the 'Mid-Boss' ending by losing the battle (having 10 of your characters all be destroyed)
