A CPU Memory is an item that first appears in Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory that can only be obtained from Memory Cores. CPU Memories only exist in the Ultra Dimension and are considered extremely rare as the appearance interval for them is randomized.
Functions & Requirements
The sole purpose of a CPU Memory is to allow humans to become goddesses. While you need the item to become a CPU, it doesn't mean that anyone with it can become a CPU. The user of the CPU Memory requires certain qualifications from birth, so if someone lacking tries to use it they will take on the form of a nasty monster. It is for this reason why competition for CPU Memories is extremely light.
Foreign CPUs and CPU Candidates that enter the Ultra Dimension are turned into normal humans, and must obtain a CPU memory in order to regain their divine abilities.
- In the original Japanese version of Victory, CPU Memories are called Goddess Memories.
- In the true ending of Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory, Uni, Rom, and Ram still retain all their powers as CPU Candidates when entering the Ultra Dimension. This is either a plot hole in the game made for convenience, or due to the fact that the two dimensions were permanently linked from that point on, similar to how their time differences synced up.
- The CPU Memory is similar to the "Ray Sphere" in "inFamous", turning potential CPUs into actual CPUs.
