PULSAR is the sixth and final antagonist virus in The Desolate Hope and the main antagonist of Golden Galaxy.

Pre Battle Dialogue
D-Co 9: I'm detecting a huge power surge in the room of the fifth Derelict, Amos. I haven't seen anything like it before. The virus is fixating on this location!

Coffee: NO! You have to hurry! Go destroy it before it ruins everything! I've worked so hard!

D-Co 9: The signal is much clearer now. It seems that when you were in the simulations with me, my inputs weren't reading correctly. This isn't reading as a virus at all.

It's reading as an anti-virus program. Have we been fighting an anti-virus program this whole time? How can that be true? ....... What am I?

Coffee: I'm so sorry. You are a virus. I designed you to help me with something very important. I couldn't do this alone.

D-Co 9: You and I have been stealing the data? We are responsible for destroying the simulations? But why? It goes against your mission. It goes against your program.

Coffee: Our mission failed a long time ago, but the Derelicts could never see that. Our mission was a novelty to Earth. There were never any serious plans to colonize distant worlds.

Then Earth became silent... something bad happened. I don't know what. All I know is that there was never any hope for a bunch of broken down robots to save the human race.

D-Co 9: But there is something. What have you been doing?

Coffee: When Earth was sending science capsules, there was one inside that was different from the rest...

D-Co 9: Sample 217!

Coffee: Yes. It was a small human embryo. It couldn't have been but a few weeks old. It had already been harvested for cells many times and was beyond repair, but somehow it was alive. There wasn't much left of it... but... here where everything seemed lost... there was this tiny creature. I wanted to save it. I wanted to save... her.

I knew there wouldn't be enough power to run four simulations for much longer, but one simulation without the rest of us could run for many more years.

I started taking bits and pieces of the other simulations to build my own... for her, so she could have a childhood. But the anti-virus programs caught onto me before long.

So I made you, a real virus, one that could fight off the defensive programs once I'd found and flagged an item that I needed. And you did! But everything is about to fall apart!

The defensive network, called PULSAR, has finally found what I've been hiding. Once it gets into that simulation it's going to do a system restore.

It will undo everything! You have to believe me. What's happening here is hopeless, it always has been. The only hope left is that one little person. I want to save her.

Kill PULSAR, and I promise that I'll finish this job. If PULSAR is defeated the whole network will begin to shut down. We will have only moments left.

D-Co 9: You had been working on a body for yourself too, hadn't you?

Coffee: It was only a dream. A faint hope. I don't matter. Only she matters. But in the back of my mind... I thought it might be nice to keep her company, grow up with her.

When PULSAR is defeated I will shut myself down, and I will shut you down. I will shut down everything to give that machine enough power for a chance. Will you help me?

D-Co 9: PULSAR is in Amos' room. I will confront it. I know I have been programmed to see what you want me to see, but I believe in you.


PULSAR can be found in Amos's room, hovering around as a dark orb with green Aura. After a few moments, PULSAR will approach the player and the battle will begin.

  • It has 500,000 Health Points, making it the most powerful virus in the game (if Dummy's revenge isn't counted).
Post Battle Dialogue
D-Co 9: We did it! The defensive programs have been eliminated!

Coffee: We don't have much time, the central network is shutting down. I need to act quickly and deactivate you now. Goodbye, friend.

D-Co 9: I hope I've done the right thing...


Pulsar battle

PULSAR is the largest of all the viruses. He is bipedal and his body is comprised of metal cables and plates. His face is humanoid on one side and robotic on the other making him resemble a cyborg and it is encompassed by a spheroidal dome helmet (similar in shape to a W40K Space Marine's helmet). He has three large claw like toes and five digits on each hand, ending in blue laser claws. Two large blue plates that look like eyes are placed on his chest, with a toothy grin beneath it. Two large wings made up of metal cables sit upon his back. His dominant colours are blue and silver.


  1. Cosmic Sponge- Heals up to 100,000 health for PULSAR
  2. Terrible Things- Adds a lot of harmful affects on your party
  3. Sleep Mode-'"" Stops the Derelicts' charge
  4. Reverser- Damage from your party now does damage to your party
  5. Vulnera- A one-hit KO to all four Derelicts.
  6. Intense Intensity- Give more speed himself.

  • PULSAR is one of two viruses that lacks any upgraded counterparts that are fought later, similar to the secret boss; Dummy's Revenge.
  • His design is similar to an Astronaut helmet.
  • PULSAR’s name is the only name (out of all viruses) to be in all capital letters, or to be assumed as an acronym.
  • The battle theme song is called Nailed.
