Lies of P – All Truth And Lie Scenarios and Consequences

Lies of P, Neowiz, Soulsborne, Dark Souls, Bloodborne, All Truth and Lie Scenarios, Choices, Consequences, Krat

In the classic Disney tale of Pinocchio, Pinocchio is a puppet who wants to become a real boy. But if he lies his nose will grow longer. In Lies of P, only half of this story is true as puppets cannot lie. But this puppet Pinocchio can lie.

In your journey, you’ll be presented with opportunities where you can choose to lie or tell the truth, with the consequences coming later on. (Be sure to read out Lies of P – All Endings Guide here). But it’s not always so obvious what is a truth and what is a lie. In this guide, we’ll go through all the truth and lie scenarios that you’ll encounter in Lies of P. Be warned that spoilers will lie ahead.


Entering Hotel Krat

Location: Hotel Krat Entrance

ConsequenceUnable to enter Hotel KratConsequenceEnter Hotel Krat

When you reach Hotel Krat for the first time you’re asked the question by a machine whether you are a human or a puppet. Puppets cannot lie and only humans are allowed into Hotel Krat.

Sophia will tell you to lie to enter the hotel. If you choose to tell the truth and say “Puppet“, the doors will remain closed and you will not be able to enter Hotel Krat. In this case, you have to lie in order to progress the story.

Try again and choose “Human to enter Hotel Krat and be welcomed by Sophia.


The Weeping Woman

Location: Petrification Disease Quarantine Zone at Elysion Boulevard

TruthThat’s a PuppetLieShe’s a cute baby
ConsequenceShe will be happyConsequenceShe will weep but accept the truth
RewardVivid Ergo FragmentRewardVivid Ergo Fragment and Feel Record

From inside a house on Elysion Boulevard, you’ll find a weeping woman looking for her child. Speak to her and she’ll set you on a quest to find her child somewhere in Krat City Hall. (You’ll need to defeat the Mad Donkey to get there).

Go down the stairs to the left when entering Krat City Hall to find a large puppet on the right. The Puppet is smashing an item on the floor which is the weeping woman’s Broken Baby Puppet. Attack or simply grab the puppet doll item and return it to the woman. This baby puppet is the woman’s “child” and when you return the puppet to her you’ll have the option to tell her the truth or lie.

Lie to the weeping woman and you’ll tell her “She’s a cute baby” to make her happy and obtain Vivid Ergo Fragment and the Feel Record which you can play and listen to in Hotel Krat. If you tell her the truth the woman will weep and eventually accept the truth. In this scenario, you’ll get the Vivid Ergo Fragment only.

If you choose to lie to The Atoned by doing the Stalker’s Greeting she will let you go up without incident. She will wish you safe passage and will hand over the Cable Railway Key. However, if you Do Nothing she will tell you that only the worthy may pass and you’ll need to fight her in order to get through.

Alidoro is one of the more useful merchants in Lies of P and will trade special boss weapons and amulets for Rare Ergo.

She will then ask you, “Do I still have a flicker of the beauty captured in that portrait?”. Whether you choose to lie or tell the truth doesn’t matter too much to this story.

Next, go to look for Polendina at the counter. He isn’t there but there is a letter that you can pick up. Head out to the garden where Polendina will ask you “Can a puppet and a human fall in love?”

The answer you give him will depend on your previous answer with Julian the Gentleman. If you show him Julian’s Wedding Ring he will say that an unbelievable love exists. But he still won’t tell her. He’ll give you 1x Gemini Iron Protection for your trouble.

If you choose to tell him the truth, he will say that he already knows it. He will thank you for the clarity but still believes that the love he feels for Lady Antonia is real. Either way, he will still reward you with 1x Gemini Iron Protection.
