Personality Edit

A silver-haired young man whose identity is shrouded in mystery. He has a cool-headed temperament but can take merciless action for the sake of his objective.

Adam is very interested in humanity and strives to be as close to them as he can. This interest in becoming as human as possible drives him to fight 2B in a battle to the death, just so that he can understand the feeling of taking one's life in battle.

In Route B, he is shown to be a good brother to Eve, as he raises him, as well as plays with him in their free time.

Gameplay Edit

Route A

  • Adam is fought for the first time in Chapter 03 when 2B and 9S are sent to the Desert to take out the machines there. He begins the battle without attacking, but obtains more skills as the battle progresses. He can deflect melee and ranged attacks, and will fire pillars of light at 2B.
  • Adam is fought again in Chapter 08, where he has gained more skills and is more aggressive. Just evade his attacks and attack after each of his attacks.

Route B

  • Adam is fought in place of Eve in Chapter 05. Just evade his attacks and counter them until the dialogue is finished.
