(The battle begins as soon as the previous one draws to a close. On this map, various enemies have filled the space not occupied by Thalone, who has taken the form of Anankos at the top of the battlefield. The objective is to defeat Anankos once and for all, making it a defeat boss chapter.)
(If Corrin initiates combat with Anankos, the following dialogue plays out.)
Corrin: This is where it all ends... You've gone too far for redemption, so I'm not going to try and fix things. Perhaps, in another life... Down another path... We could have been together. Still, I won't let my newfound knowledge of our relationship keep me from doing what I have to. Get ready, Anankos. You won't stop me now!
(If Lilith initiates combat with Anankos, the following dialogue plays out.)
Lilith: I truly wish that things could have gone another way, but... Thinking about how the past could have gone will help no one. All we can do now is fight in the name of the future that we're trying to bring to this continent. Prepare yourself, Anankos! Everything ends here and now!
(If anyone else initiates combat with Anankos, the following dialogue plays out.)
Anankos: You are fools... For turning against a god... Pay for your betrayal... With death!
(When Anankos is defeated, the following dialogue plays out.)
Anankos: No... This cannot be... I... Urgh...
(After the battle, Corrin, Azura, and Lilith stand near Anankos, who is beginning to disappear into the purple fire.)
Corrin: It's all over... At long last, it's all over.
Anankos: I'm sorry about all of this...
Anankos: I got carried away, and... This is the fate I deserve for my crimes...
Azura: Corrin... What do you have to say?
Corrin: ...I'm sorry it had to end this way, but... I would have loved for things to be different in another life. Even so, what matters now is the future.
Anankos: With my death, this continent will no longer have gods... The fate of Pheuyura is left in the hands of the people... What will you do with that power...?
Corrin: We'll forge a new future. We've been fighting all this time in the name of a new world that can be freed of war and tyranny, and we're going to continue crafting such an existence even now.
Anankos: I'm proud of you... Goodbye, Pheuyura... Goodbye, children...
(Anankos fully disappears into the purple fire. With his defeat, a large mass of energy sweeps through the area.)
Azura: This is it... The raw power of a god...
Corrin: It isn't hurting us... But what could it mean?
Lilith: I'm sure that it changed something, but... I don't know what it could be.
Corrin: Either way, I... I want to get out of here. We have a lot to do outside of Valla. Hoshido and Nohr... No, the rest of the continent is waiting for us.
(The trio leaves the castle. When they step outside, they find Valla's landscape blank aside from the castle.)
Azura: I don't understand...
Lilith: There's nothing here.
Corrin: The land is completely cleared... As if nothing happened in the first place.
Azura: The destroyed houses are gone, and I don't see any traces of the invisible soldiers.
Lilith: Maybe this was what his power did... It cleared the country of all its debris.
Corrin: In his last few moments of clarity, Anankos changed things... The future is for us to make now, and he has provided us with a canvas to begin drawing upon.
Azura: What should we do with Valla now?
Corrin: I believe that choice is up to you... Princess.
Azura: I hardly believe I'm fit for a position as a ruler...
Lilith: I would beg to differ. You've done so much for us already, and I feel like Valla would be lucky to have you.
Azura: ...It's something to consider.
Corrin: You don't have to make any decisions now. After all, we have much to do right now. Wouldn't you agree?
Azura: Yes... I would.
(Time skips ahead to show Corrin, Azura, Lilith, and the royals of Hoshido and Nohr gathered together in the throne room of Valla's palace.)
Corrin: Well, Azura... How does it feel to be queen?
Azura: It's... It's something I'll have to get used to.
Lilith: It's hard to believe that it's already been a few months since the end of the war... The restoration process is coming along nicely.
Ryoma: And now, we can add Valla back among the ranks of the recovered.
Camilla: So many people are migrating to the country... It seems you have a daunting task ahead of you, Azura.
Elise: I'm sure she can handle it. We're here to help her through it, after all.
Hinoka: Plus, we have the best ambassadors anyone could ask for to help out.
Corrin: You flatter me, Hinoka... I'm just doing what I can for the sake of the continent's future.
Sakura: It's going to be hard to get things back to how they once were, but... We can heal together.
Leo: Hoshido and Nohr have dealt with tension and hatred for a long time... More than fifty years of issues have caused problems between our people.
Takumi: Bold of you to assume that this will stop us from getting things back to how they should be.
Xander: I'm positive that the future will be a grand one for everyone...
Lilith: The king of Hoshido... The king of Nohr... And the queen of Valla... Who would have expected the three of you to be such good friends?
Azura: I would go further than simply friendship... We're family.
Ryoma: The future is an uncertain one, but we will face it as one.
Xander: Peace will not come easily... But that has hardly stopped us in the past.
Hinoka: Thanks to us, the world is only in the hands of people...
Camilla: Peace will be relatively easy to find after killing a god.
Takumi: After what we've been through, this is going to be a piece of cake.
Leo: And unlike last time, we're actually willing to work together the whole way through.
Sakura: I'm excited to see what will come next for us all.
Elise: Whatever it is, I'm positive it will be incredible.
Azura: You've been awfully quiet over there, Corrin...
Ryoma: Is there something on your mind?
Xander: Don't hold back.
Corrin: It's just... I never knew what the future would hold, and even now, it's impossible to say what waits on the horizon... But I don't think I mind it as much as I used to. No matter what comes our way, we'll face it with determination and passion as we always have. Fate is ours to control... And I've never been happier.
You have followed the path of silence and blood
And unlike before
You don't wonder
What would things have been like
If your choice had been different
Because everything is perfect
Just where you are.
