Zone 2 is a group of areas ruled by Japhet, the Guardian of that Zone. It consists of a library, a shopping mall, an amusement park, and a residential location. The Elsen in this zone all seem to be afflicted with great paranoia and place heavy importance on safety, even while possessing a large lack of self-awareness as well as understanding of what's happening around them.
While going through this Zone, The Batter and The Player learn more about the nature of the world of OFF by looking at the materials in the massive library. Through this, they both learn that a significant section of the Zone is apparently owned and/or administrated by Zacharie. In the end, the purification mission leads to a conflict between Japhet and The Batter.
In the Library, which The Batter will ultimately have to ascend in order to get to Japhet, as it is his greatest achievement, the Elsen have blocked off the fourth floor and beyond due to others tearing pages out of the books. An Elsen on the first floor will grant access to the fourth floor to The Batter if he retrieves and fills in all of the missing pages. One of these pages isn't in the library and must be purchased from an Elsen in the area leading to the amusement park for 100 credits. It is also in this library where The Batter acquires Omega. There are also false shelves in the library, presumably for book safety reasons.
In the Shopping Mall, Zacharie can be immediately spotted on the first floor. The area itself consists primarily of a maze-like area that will need to be traversed, as well as a pedalo access point that is necessary to reach the amusement park.
Amusement Park, due to the Elsen's strict value of safety, consists mainly of low risk attractions, such as a set of chairs to sit in, which are supposed to emulate a roller coaster, which still manages to stir up the Elsen.
In the Balloon Popping mini-game, The Batter and an Elsen manning the stand take turns popping one, two, or three balloons. The one who is stuck with the last balloon loses. If The Batter wins, the Elsen accuses The Batter of cheating and becomes a Valzong-Burnt. Upon defeating it, The Batter will get a necktie, which allows progressing further in the Residential Area. After completing the mini-game, the Elsen in the entrance will panic, mistaking the Valzong-Burnt as specters invading the park.
In the pedalo ride, there are barely visible motors in the water that The Batter will have to maneuver around in order to gain the items in the balloons scattered about, as well as to reach the switch to activate the roller-coaster.
Due to safety concerns, the roller-coaster was shut down and replaced with a row of chairs. Once the Batter reaches and activates the switch in the pedalo ride, it becomes available for riding, with The Batter adamantly insisting on riding in the front seat. The Batter can have a photo taken of himself, and push a statue of Zacharie into the front row on the ride to obtain a Photo with Zacharie. Since Zacharie seems to be the owner of the amusement park, this will allow the Batter access to his office, where he can gain various Orbs. The photos themselves can also be sold to Zacharie later on, with the photo taken with the statue worth much more than the one of just The Batter riding.
The Residential Area is blocked off to non-residents due to safety concerns, but The Batter can wear the necktie obtained in the Balloon Popping game to fool the Elsen into thinking he's a resident. Upon entering the Residential Area, Japhet will attack the residents with specters that The Batter will have to defeat within 4 minutes. He is promptly told to leave and relinquish the necktie upon completing it, giving only this brief opportunity to gather the access codes into the bunkers and acquire any items within.
