Cuphead Game Ending

Featured image on The Cuphead Show Clip.

After making your way through the three worlds in Cuphead, you will arrive in the game’s finale. The finale area features two bosses to fight and a couple of endings to unlock. Both the good and bad ending feature some interesting art to look at, so I recommend unlocking both. As this is a post about Cuphead game ending, major spoilers can be found below. You have been warned. Note: Both endings can be unlocked in the same playthrough

Bad Cuphead Ending


How to unlock: Both the good and bad endings in Cuphead are unlocked in similar ways. Start the fight with The Devil and agree to hand over the Soul Contracts in the opening cutscene.

What Happens?: In the bad Cuphead ending, we see both Cuphead and Mughead have gone insane and are burning in hell with The Devil. Pretty fun stuff.

Achievement: Selling Out – Give in to the Devil

Good Cuphead Ending


How to Unlock: Start the fight with The Devil but choose not to give him the Soul Contracts. This triggers The Devil boss fight. Beat the Devil to unlock the good Cuphead Ending.

What Happens?: When you beat The Devil, you hurry home and tell everyone they are now safe from The Devil’s rein. Things are happy and good in this ending. The good Cuphead ending also hints at potential DLC, which had me excited.

Achievement (s): Souls Saved/Beat The Devil At His Own Game (based on difficulty level played on)

After watching both the bad and good endings of Cuphead, you have to be impressed with the game’s art style. There is so much detail and effort put into every little thing.

    My 9 year old boy and I have played Cuphead for over a month and while I was at work today, he apparently finally beat the game. As I walked in the door tonight, my wife said that my boy was in his room distraught and heartbroken because the game RESET right after he beat it. He drew pictures and posted them all over his bedroom and now for this to happen is devastating to a young fan like Carter. Is there anything I can do to fix this? We bought it through our Xbox
