Adramelech Battle Theme
She’s in the Administrator Tower.
Luka and the party have ventured through the third Tartarus and entered another dimension. Within this dimension, the world itself is being consumed by the Chaos. Both Sylph and Gnome inform Luka that their corresponding elements are dead in this world.
At the entrance to the tower, the party is greeted by Radio. She’s currently serving as La Croix’s research assistant. She fills them in on the current state of the world; it’s ending. The last human died 25 years ago. The last monster died six years ago. The only thing still standing is this tower. Radio offers to lead the party to La Croix, on the third floor. She asks us to be careful as La Croix has created artificial monster girls to fight off apoptosis beings, and they will likely attack Luka.
By the time the party reach the top floor of the tower, there is nothing left. Just Radio, La Croix and the Cirque du Croix.
La Croix explains that this world differed too much from the correct history, somewhere down the line, and this is the result. The world being consumed by “nothingness”. She goes into further detail that her research has uncovered that the Paradox didn’t start in this dimension. But from a different one entirely. The Chaos will spread further and further into other parallel universes until it destroys them all. Including the original world and the Paradox world. She wants Luka to take what they learned back to his world for La Croix in the hope that she can finish the work she started.
There’s another shudder. La Croix tells Luka to return to their world while there’s still time. Luka tries to talk her into coming with them, but La Croix won’t have it. She asks Luka to take Radio with them as she’s grown rather fond of her and doesn’t want to see her destroyed.
Luka and the party leave through the exit at the back of the room.
After they leave, Adramelech appears shortly after. She asks La Croix to move out of the way, but La Croix refuses to back down, followed by La Croix and the Cirque du Croix attacking her. You don’t see the actual fight.
Before Luka and the party can leave the world, Adramelech appears and blocks their way to the exit. Her battle with La Croix knocked her down to only 10% of her normal power, so that gives Luka a chance.
Defeated, Adramelech collapses, presumably dead. Luka and the party run through the exit, as the world falls apart around them.
Adramelech isn’t quite dead yet. Her damaged form grabs Luka as they’re running across the bridge back to their world. She’s determined to drag Luka down into the “nothingness” with her.
Luka believes this is the end for him, but then a mysterious person shows up and cuts her in half with a sword. That person turns out to be Marcellus. Luka’s father. The family reunion doesn’t last long. Marcellus points out that while Luka is trying to save one world, Marcellus is trying to save them all. He leaves the dimension through a portal.
She made her final appearance in Part 2 when Sonya becomes an Apoptosis and summon her. The Lilith Sisters and the Three seraphim band against Adramelech while Luka's group fight Sonya. While the two trio manage to hold their own and take her down several times, Adramelech keeps reviving and becoming stronger each time and starts destroying the world once and for all.
On Alice's route, Nuruko reveals herself as the Spirit of Chaos and expels Adramelech back to the void between worlds before sealing Sonya and turning back to her small self.
On Ilias's route, Sonya attack Adramelech and rewinds time, and leaves a copy of herself to acompany Luka before sacrificing herself and rewinding time to remove the fights that happened from the recent events.
“A very powerful, high-class Apoptosis. Her nature and purpose are shrouded in mystery, and she does not appear to understand human language, making communication impossible. She has characteristics of both monsters and angels at the same time, and by wielding the mysterious power known as Chaos, her combat abilities are extraordinary. She is an organism whose very existence is an enigma, and it is uncertain whether she was really destroyed or not. There is also a theory that she becomes more powerful each time she appears…”

Adramelech can be disappointing for a final boss if you fight on normal or less difficulty. If you fight on a hard or higher difficulty, prepare your best equipment and party members. A Superstar (like Saki) who provides stat boosts is more than helpful.
As a whole, she's not exceptionally tough, but doesn't possess any glaring weakness either: She possesses resistance to the three magic elements, dark and holy, limiting the offensive options a great deal, and most status effects against her are useless.
Defending against her attacks is where things can get complicated: With several auto-hit attacks, including one that has a dangerous chance to insta-kill at least one party member, having someone ready to be a full time healer is a necessity. Slowing her down allows to better time healings, but even then, you're not free from a surprise party wipe. Your best call is to avoid bringing monsters with a holy weakness, as they also have a weaker resistance to ascension as well. Last, while dodge and physical resistance won't protect you against the most painful attacks, it can avoid getting finished by a weaker follow up.
Ilias: “Error code 695!? What in the world are you fighting? …I have a bad feeling about this, so let’s do this quickly. An analysis of your memory indicates that your opponent is named Adramalech. …No weak points found. You’ll have to do this the hard way, I guess. She makes heavy use of strong Holy and Dark element attacks, but I doubt there’s much you can do to mitigate their damage at this point. At the very least, don’t fight with any party members who are weak to those elements. Make sure you have plenty of healing, and don’t skimp on support spells. Abnormal status effects are wholly ineffective, although time magic like slow and stop can be useful. The odds of landing stop are so poor that you’re better off with slow. Just slowing her down should be enough to turn the tables. Her elemental resistances are all high, and-- --what’s going on!? Unbelievable!!”
Adramelech: “Class Two Cross-World Contact detected -- Intermundane contact is prohibited.”
Ilias: “How can anyone break into this world… Wait, how is this Class Two Cross-World Contact!? That means Luka, you’re a different-- No, perhaps it is I who--”
Adramelech: “Contact is prohibited. Eliminating--”
- Adramelech was a form of sun god related to Moloch. The centre of his worship was the Mesopotamian town of Sippar (Sepharvaim).
- Her second form is the only one that Luka didn't need to battle.
- She is the only Apoptosis who has the power of reviving herself and the power of invading Heaven during the evaluation meeting if Luka loses to her.
