The Area 3 Crossroads is the final hub area of LISA: THE PAINFUL. The trumpet heard in the background of other hubs is slowed to a depressingly slow and sluggish tempo, mirroring the decline of Brad, his mental state, and what he has had to sacrifice to get to this point. Brad must obtain parts for a ship to be able to save Buddy on an island east of Area 3.

Locations[edit | edit source]
Area 3 Shop[edit | edit source]
Fancy Cave[edit | edit source]
The Fancy Cave (sometimes referred to as the Art Gallery) is a bizarre cave with mod-styled wallpaper. Many different Joy Mutants are put on display like works of art. While none of the displayed mutants can be battled with, each one bares a name plate next to them describing their type of transformation in one word.
It is unknown how or why they are displayed and are peaceful, but it appears that at least some are still alive, indicated by Insecurity drooling.
At the end past a metal door is another Joy Mutant overlooking a scientist. If Brad inspects the two, it will say that the mutant is glaring at the man and too distracted to fight. There is no explanation about the relationship between the two, but many fans theorize that the mutant has killed the "artist" and is now satisfied or even mourning him.
Yado's Lookout[edit | edit source]
Dropping down from the crossroad's save crow brings you to a small outcropping.
There's the entrance to Gary's cave, and a man stands directly above it.
Gary's Cave[edit | edit source]
Gary's cave is a small vertically oriented cave. At the top is a man, as well as Gary the Cat. Talking to the man after interacting with Gary will reward you with the Cat Paw.
Area 3 Shore[edit | edit source]
The shore is the last section of Area 3 in which Brad can, once all 4 boat parts are obtained, sail to the last area of the game.
However, if Brad let Sticky survive previously, and all 4 boat parts are obtained, he will confront Brad in an attempt to save the world.
