Normal Mode is the default difficulty setting available to players in Galerians: Ash. In Normal Mode, Rion starts the game with 1000 HP, AP, and PPEC (unlike in Easy Mode where he instead starts the game with 2000 for each.) This is considered to be the suggested difficulty setting for most players because the majority of unlockables are available to players that complete Normal Mode. The true ending cutscene can only be viewed after completing the game on Normal Mode and it will not play on Easy Mode. Players will unlock 8 of the 10 extra pictures, Short Mode, and Hard Mode if they complete Normal Mode with an A Rank.
