Had to look it up. Seems I'm missing Rhyme Dive.

1 Foolsomealmost 3 years

I can't tell what I'm missing. I finished the main story, did the side quests, and did the dives as Gold but I'm still missing some FP. I'm not sure what to do. I can't even unlock Ultimate Difficulty because I'm missing those FP.
