For the spoiler-free requirements, see: Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 Trophies
Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 features a total of 3 endings, the Normal Ending, the True Ending, and the Conquest Ending. The Normal Ending may have an event extension depending on the player's actions. A total of 5 extensions can be seen through the normal ending if certain requirements are met. All endings and extensions result in a trophy. Endings are determined by two variables: Shares and Lily Ranks.
Condition: The game will end with the Normal Ending if none of the conditions are fulfilled for the True Ending and the Conquest Ending. The story will end in Chapter 6: Evil's Fading Silhouette after defeating CFW Arfoire.
The party defeats Arfoire, but shortly after the party discovers that they had only destroyed her body. The CPUs explains that the CPUs from the past used their bodies to seal Arfoire. The CPU Candidates had come to believe that the CPUs will use the same method, but they assure that it's only the worst-case scenario. After the CPUs assured to their sister that they won't get sealed with Arfoire that easily, they directed their attentions back to Arfoire and attack her again. Arfoire disappears along with the CPUs, their faiths remaining unknown.
Some time had passed, and the cast came to accept that Neptune, Blanc, Noire, and Vert were sealed up with Arfoire. All CPU Candidate are about to be commenced as CPUs of their respective nations, though the situation with Leanbox remains unknown. Nepgear gives her commencement speech in front of an audience in Planeptune. Somewhere in the audience, it was revealed that the CPUs had survived the ordeal with Arfoire. Apparently, they were "late" because Neptune "struggled to get ahold of her leg that Arfoire was holding onto." As a form of punishment, the others catapult Neptune so she can take responsibility of revealing that they had survived.
Nepgear, Uni, Ram, and Rom had gave out their commencement speeches. Then, Neptune appears "from the sky" as a result from her being catapulted. Blanc, Noire, and Vert reveal themselves shortly after. The story then ends with an emotional reunion.
Normal Ending extensions
Additionally, the Normal Ending may extend with more events if certain requirements are met. Although they are labeled as endings, all five "endings" are rather extra scenes that extend from the Normal Ending. All requirements must be fulfilled before the fight against CFW Arfoire in chapter 6.
Nepgear invites all the playable makers to her place for a sleepover to celebrate their triumph against Arfoire. The casts find their positions on where to sleep. The scene ends after they talk about how they should stay in Nepgear's home everyday.
Condition: To unlock the Planeptune Ending, Planeptune's local shares must be at least 70%. If the player already recruited any of the other CPUs, their respective nations' local shares must be below 70%. Additionally, Neptune's Lily Rank must be up to Love.
Both sisters of Planeptune "play hooky" from their work. As the sisters relax in their room, Histoire arrives shortly to "give them a piece of her mind." Neptune explains that she's been "working" too long and deserves a rest. The scene ends with Histoire giving the sisters a break from work for 3 days.

Nepgear was doing some paperwork until Vert came over. Apparently, she's been coming over to Planeptune recently to visit and play with Nepgear. Reluctantly, she agrees. Vert dresses Nepgear up in a pink dress. Chika and Neptune was watching from a corner, both jealous of how Vert and Nepgear are spending more time than them. The scene ends with Nepgear giving in to Vert and be a "doll to dress up."
Condition: To unlock the Lastation Ending, Lastation's local shares must be at least 70%. Noire must be recruited. Planeptune's local shares must be below 70%. If the player already recruited any of the other CPUs, their respective nations' local shares must be below 70%. Additionally, the Lily Ranks with Noire and Uni must be up to Love.
Noire was training Uni, but she believes Uni is only half adequate because of her sole reliance on raw power. Unsatisfied and determined to beat her sister, Uni drags Nepgear along and forced her for a training session. As Uni "trains" with Nepgear, under the shade of a tree, Neptune and Noire discuss on how each will surpass each other soon enough. The scene ends with Nepgear deliberately trying to run away from Uni, whose trying to land a hit on her.
Condition: To unlock the Lowee Ending, Lowee's local shares must be at least 70%. Blanc must be recruited. Planeptune's local shares must be below 70%. If the player already recruited any of the other CPUs, their respective nations' local shares must be below 70%. Additionally, the Lily Ranks with Blanc, Ram, and Rom must be up to Love.
Nepgear visits Lowee to Blanc's place to read and to visit Ram and Rom. The present CPU Candidates decided to read together with Blanc. They slowly find their way into relaxing in Blanc like a furniture. She gives in the current situation she's in right now, rather being relaxed on like a furniture than Nepgear, Ram, and Rom "making a bunch of noise." The scene ends with Nepgear deciding to read one of Ram's comic books to Rom and Blanc saying, "Life could be worse, I guess."
Condition: The True Ending is the ending result of Chapter 8: Defenders. To unlock the additional chapters, all CPUs must be recruited, and all of the global shares of each nation must be at least 15%. Unlike the Normal Ending, there are 2 additional chapters after chapter 6. The True Ending can be viewed after defeating DOS Arfoire in chapter 8.
The CPUs finally defeat Arfoire once and for all. Refusing to vanish alone, Arfoire decides to drag all of Gamindustri's feelings with her. The party then experiences a very powerful earthquake. Apparently, the Gamindustri Graveyard is collapsing. Neptune and Nepgear collapses, but they escape along with the others thanks to their help.
Three months have passed, and the damage done by Arfoire was repaired. Everybody had returned back to their daily lives. Compa resumes her profession and soon became a nurse at a clinic. 5pb. resumes her career as an idol, and Cave comes back to Leanbox and returned to her work. IF goes back to work as an agent Guild, and Falcom resumes as an adventurer. Underling and Pirachu continue to distribute Arfoire chips, although they're redundant after Arfoire was annihilated. They're soon later chased by both Falcom and IF.

In Lastation, Uni managed to surpass Noire in paperwork. In Leanbox, Chika tries and manages to get a busy and working Vert to hang out with her. In Lowee, Blanc struggles with the trouble that Ram and Rom is giving her. In Planeptune, Nepgear goes on a sister hunt to bring Neptune back to work on her duties as a CPU.

With the outcome favoring Nepgear, Arfoire was finally defeated. As Nepgear was about to slay Arfoire with the cursed sword, Arfoire didn't hesitate to dodge, letting herself be impaled. Arfoire explains that she let herself to lose because Gamindustri was already on the verge of destruction. Nepgear retorts that Gamindustri will be peaceful as long as Arfoire is gone from the world. Arfoire explains that Gamindustri will indeed be peaceful under one nation ruled by one CPU, but there will be no conflict, war, and competition, meaning that mankind will not advance and will soon decay. Nepgear ensures that she will never let Gamindustri fall under leadership. Arfoire responds that the people will soon demand freedom after a while. She ends her words by saying she is eternal and will come back if called upon again.
News spread about the CPUs' "disappearance" around Gamindustri. Ten days after Arfoire's downfall, Nepgear comes to a resolve to bring about order. As Nepgear went around Gamindustri to restore order and addressing its problems, Nepgear contemplates Arfoire's last words echoing in the corners of her mind. Nepgear ensures herself that she won't let Gamindustri fall and will use any means necessary to do so.
