The conflict that has lasted since time immemorial is finally nearing its end. But is is an end desired by no one.
"Chaos means to use his powers to destroy the world-and himself."
Garland's last words rattle the warriors. And as the crystals grow weaker, they sense their own existence slowly fade away.
Their nemesis, Chaos, awaits. But time, for them and for the world, is running short...
—Introduction

Shade Impulse: Chapter 4, subtitled The Decisive Battle (決戦, Kessen?), is a storyline in Dissidia Final Fantasy. It follows the actions of the Warriors of Cosmos as they battle the final few manikins and confront Chaos to defeat him and save their worlds from destruction. Uniquely, this storyline has no story bonuses, no Destiny Points are used, and there are only two stages instead of the usual five.

A B C D E F G H
1     DFF Hard Battle Piece     DFF Hard Battle Piece

5 DFF Summonstone DFF Hard Battle Piece     DFF Hard Battle Piece     DFF Potion
"A nothingness beyond death approaches... At chaos's end lies the answer they have sought."

This second-to-last stage before Chaos is very straightforward. A long, straight path leads to the Stigma of Chaos. The enemies are not very powerful compared to the enemies fought in the previous chapter and should pose no threat, but compared to how Hard Battle Pieces normally are they have larger movesets and all of them use summonstones. Since the player has no Destiny Points to worry about concerning, they may pick up the Potion and the Ramuh summonstone at their leisure.

"

Though this stage is not as straightforward as the last, it is still not complicated. The Tiamat summonstone is here, as is a Potion, and the enemies are not any stronger than before. The player faces Chaos to end the stage and the Shade Impulse storyline here. The player is advised to equip their strongest equipment, accessories and summon for this final battle, and to use the Potion just before hand to enter the battle with max HP and a full EX Gauge to give them every advantage possible.
