Towards the end of OMORI's True Route, Sunny is forced to fight a hysterical Basil in order to 'save' him.

Story

"Don't worry, Sunny... I'll save you again. Something behind you... I'll get rid of it once and for all. Sunny... Don't be scared. I'm scared too, but this is for the best. Everything is going to be okay. Everything... is going to be... okay..."
-Basil, immediately before he attacks Sunny

After Sunny reunites his friends, they attempt to check in on Basil. However, Polly tells them that, following a visit to the hospital to see his grandmother, he has locked himself in his room and is completely unresponsive. Hero suggests they wait for him, and asks Sunny to show them the treehouse in his backyard. Following this, they return to Basil's house that evening, only for Basil to still ignore to all attempts to reach out. Hero suggests a sleepover, both to celebrate Sunny's last day in Faraway Town, and so that they'd be there for Basil.

After Sunny falls asleep and pieces together the truth behind Mari's death and alleged suicide, he suddenly wakes up in the middle of the night. His friends still asleep, he heads to Basil's room and, finding the door unlocked, enters.

Confronting Basil in his room, Sunny finds him in a manic state. He talks to Sunny about the day Mari died, and how he chose to blame "Something behind him" for her death, refusing to believe that his best friend could kill his own sister. Initially expressing gratitude for how Sunny finally came back for him, he suddenly begins screaming at him, calling him "mean" for leaving him alone for four years, only returning mere days before he was to move out.

Sunny, disturbed, attempts to leave, only to find Something blocking the door. Closing the distance between them, Basil begs Sunny not to leave, before immediately blaming Something behind him for his desire to leave. He reveals that Sunny was the one who vandalized the photo album, another act he blamed on Something, before attacking him in a delusional frenzy.

The boy's fight ends when Basil stabs Sunny in his right eye with gardening shears, blinding him and causing them both to black out from their injuries.

Battle

Basil has 150 HP.png heart, 30 MP.png juice, 4 attack, 2 defense, 6 speed and 10 luck, he will follow an scripted behaviour till the end of the battle:

Basil Behaviour
Basil
On the first turn, Basil will do nothing.

From the second turn on, Basil will always attack, until either Sunny or Basil reach 2% heart.

Sunny starts the battle Afraid. Basil's attacks will never miss, and if Sunny tries to use any of his skills, he will be interrupted by Something and will be unable to use it again.
A cutscene will play when Sunny's "Stress Meter" reaches 10 after nine turns of combat, at which point Sunny will take on the emotion Stressed Out, unique to this fight.

While Stressed Out, the screen will take on a grayscale tone, the music will change, the number on the side of the Stress Meter will rapidly cycle, and the bar itself will spell out "Everything is going to be okay." Both Sunny and Basil's attacks will also cause the screen to glow red, and play a stabbing sound.

Finally, once Sunny or Basil reaches 2% heart, Basil will stab Sunny in his right eye. Sunny's portrait will reflect the wound, and the left side of the screen will be completely blacked out. Following this, the battle will end as both boys collapse from their injuries.

Trivia

  • If cheats are used to stall the end of the fight, Basil will begin attacking again after the 99th turn.
  1. His unused "preemptive strike" skill uses this action text, this skill would've dealt 50% HP.png to Sunny, and likely would've been used right at the start of the battle.
