Emil is a Merchant and an NPC in NieR: Automata. His regular NPC information can be found here. He can also encountered as a Boss through Ending Y.  Merchants in the game are NPCs that can be encountered in many different Locations as you progress through each area. In addition to their general dialogue or interactions, Merchants can be traded with or will own a Shop stock where players can replenish Items that would benefit them in Combat or enhance their gear. Merchants may also purchase any unwanted items from players or provide extra services such as upgrading Weapons.


Emil Information NieR Automata

"This mysterious creature emerged from inside of a machine lifeform and set up a shop afer obtaining a new body. While he calls himself Emil, his true identity is a mystery. Once he discovered who had been stealing from his room, he was incited to fight. But after being defeated, he was reduced to tears by the realization that only power matters in this world."

  • LocationsCity Ruins
  • In NieR Automata, Emil has an Item Shop that will spawn randomly in one of three locations; near the Desert Zone entrance, the City Ruins: Near Factory access point, and outside the Resistance Camp. He will sell different items depending on where you find him. He has two kinds of items in stock per route, either chips or Weapons and materials. Making him switch routes is - for now - quite unreliable. Teleporting in and out of access points seems to work. Another fairly good approach is to walk between the desert zone and halfway to the Desert: Camp access point via moose, then check your map for his icon. It is faster than teleporting and has a good chance of making him switch routes.
  • Emil's Item Shop stocks a number of Plug-in Chips, Materials, Weapons, and Key Items
  • Emil's stock depends on the location he has been stopped, so if he passes through the location the player needs, they can wait for him to come back there instead of trying to spawn him again.
  • Emil Resembles the companion character who accompanied the player in the NieR: Gestalt / NieR: Replicant, but may actually be a copy. He harbors latent magical power, but most of his memory is gone due to the long years that have passed/making so many copies of himself.
  • Secret Ending: How to get Ending Y  [Spoilers]
    Emil also takes part in the game and gives you Ending Y, a secret ending with a Secret Boss encounter against none other than Emil himself. See also: Emil (Boss)


Emil Locations and Where to find in NieR Automata
