Nier Replicant: Forest of Myth Deathdream Riddle Answers Guide

As you progress through the story in Nier Replicant, Nier and Yonah will have a strange dream and Popola also receives a bizarre letter regarding dreams from the mayor of a nearby town. As a result, you will find yourself tasked with visiting the Forest of Myth, which is accessed via the northwestern exit of the Northern Plains.

After speaking with the mayor there, you will find yourself locked into a Deathdream, something that has afflicted all of the villagers. Essentially, you are now trapped within a text-based adventure-style game for the time being. Additionally, you’ll have to solve riddles and select specific answers in order to proceed. Fortunately, we’ve got all of it covered right here.

Mayor’s Deathdream

  • First Riddle: “One with it is lacking. Two with it is ideal. Three with it is dangerous. What is it?”
  • Answer: “The answer is…a secret.”
  • Second Riddle: “I enter through the window, but break no glass. When night falls, I vanish. What am I?”
  • Answer: “Sunlight!”
  • Third Riddle: “I have four legs in the morning and two at noon, but end the night with three. What am I?”
  • Answer: “A man.”

After solving the riddles and reading the rest of this text-based portion, you will exit the Deathdream and be rewarded with the “Dark Execution” Sealed Verse.

Once the mayor is free, there are two more NPCs that need help located at the north and south of the most eastern area of the map, as shown below:

Villager’s Deathdream (North)

Instead of riddles, you’ll need to select the correct directions to navigate the catacombs. These are the selections you need to make:

  • “…and proceed north.”
  • “… and proceed east.”
  • “… and proceed north.”
  • “… and proceed east.”
  • “…and proceed north.”

Once you have freed this villager, you can move onto the last NPC that is just south of your current position.

Villager’s Deathdream (South)

The final text-based adventure portion poses another riddle. Faced with three statues named Alpha, Beta, and Gamma, the riddle is:

“Only one form is real. The others are false. The real form will always speak the truth. The false ones will only speak lies.”

After being posed with this information, Alpha will claim to be real, Beta will state that Alpha is fake and that it is the real one, and finally, Gamma will state that Beta is a fake and that it is the truly real form.

The answer to who is the real form is Beta.

Once all three Deathdreams have been completed, return to the mayor to receive your reward — the one-handed sword Faith.
