- World 3 -

[After defeating Exdeath]
All: The crystals!!
Butz: They're shattering!

[All goes black...]
Lenna: What's that!?
Faris: Tycoon Castle?
Lenna: Are we... back!?

[In Tycoon Castle]
Guard 1: Oh, I'm so glad you're all right! (opens door) The Minister's waiting for you.
People: Oh, Lenna! You're back!
Minister: Princess Lenna! Princess Sarisa! Welcome back!
Lenna: Where's Father?
Minister: Unfortunately, His Majesty has passed away... somehow we must all overcome this tragedy... but then, Princess Sarisa has returned to us alive, so...
Faris: "Sarisa"... that's my real name?
Minister: Yes, Your Highness.
Faris: The name Dad gave me?
[Guards push Butz and Kururu]
Butz: Hey!
Minister: Well, the banquet is all ready! Your friends can join in too!

[At the banquet]
Faris (in a fancy dress): I can't stand looking like this!
Minister: Oh, don't say that, Your Highness!
Faris: Huh!?
[Faris walks out to throne room]
All: Wow, she's so beautiful!
Butz (with a heart above his head ^_^): Yeah, she is...
Kururu: Butz! You're blushing!!
Butz: Oh, shut up...
Guard: Dance, everybody!!
Dancer 1: Lenna is so beautiful... and Sarisa is too!
Dancer 2: So Princess Sarisa has begun calling herself Faris?
Dancer 3: I hope Lenna and Sarisa never leave again! If they don't stay here...
Guard 2: Looks like the Minister can rest safely now.
Guard 3: We'd really like for Lenna to stay here.
Person: Oh, isn't this just great? ... but... I'm worried about the sky. It looks strange... and only over Tycoon.
2: Why not wander around the castle for a while?
[If you go outside again]
Guard: (On the way out) Be careful! (and reentering) Hey, the party's still going!
[Others say the same things as before]
[In Jenica's classroom]
Jenica: You know, I could almost have guessed it about Sarisa. I remember back then...
~ Flashback ~
Sarisa: Cure... Cure 2... Cure 3...
Cure... Cure 2... Cure 3...
Jenica: OK, that's enough for today.
Sarisa: I'm tired!
Jenica: You mother says that you should put Lenna to bed, too.
Jenica: So go do it while I grade your test.
Sarisa: OK!
Jenica: Come right back, understand?
Sarisa: Uh-huh...
Sarisa: (to Lenna in the bedroom) Hey, Lenna, I'm going to get to ride on the Hiryuu tomorrow! Dad's gonna take me with him!
Lenna: Googagoo... (baby noises)
Sarisa: Dad says that flying up high in the sky is really fun!
Sarisa: You look around from up there, and you feel like you're "levitating"!
Sarisa: No... wait... it was like, uhh... "Toad"? "Teleport"? No, that's not it... "Mini..."?
Jenica: (back in class) Where is she? She's late!
[Sarisa and Lenna fall asleep...]
~ End of Flashback ~

[Out on the balcony]
Kururu: Grandpa...
Butz: What's wrong? Are you thinking about Galuf?
Kururu: Uh huh. But I'm not sad or anything... just a little nervous. I feel like he wants us to hurry...
Butz: OK, let's go then.
Kururu: Huh?
Butz: Why were we warped back to this world? We'd better look into it.
Kururu: Yeah!

Kururu: What about Lenna and Faris?
Butz: What can we do? They're staying here.
[Soldier runs into Tycoon]
Soldier: So sorry! But I've got to deliver the news about the bridge in the west! It's all finished!!
Butz: Maybe Boko is in that cave over there...
Kururu: Who's Boko?
Butz: My chocobo that I ride around on.
Kururu: Really!?
Butz: What? You don't believe me!?
Kururu: But Butz, you're pathetic at riding the Hiryuu! Yet you can ride a chocobo?
Butz: What are you talking about!? (pushes her)
Kururu: Now you've done it! Take THIS!! (pushes him back)
Butz: Drat! I'm no match for you...

[At the cave]
Butz: Boko!
Boko: Kue--!
Kururu: Hi, I'm Kururu. Nice to meet you.
Butz: Kururu, you can talk to Chocobos!?
Kururu: Well, just a little. It looks like he wants to introduce someone.
(Boko and Kururu talk)
Kururu: Wow! He has a wife! Her name is... Koko.
Butz: Boko, so you've...!
Butz: Boko, I need you to do something...
Boko: Kue--!
Kururu: He says he understands.
Butz: Huh!?
Kururu: He knows you've got to go on a long trip.
Butz: Is that OK with you, Boko?
(Boko talks to Koko)
Butz: What's he saying?
Kururu: He says he loves her...
Butz: Hmph!
Kururu: He's asking her to take care of their child while he's gone.
Butz: Child!?
Kururu: Koko's going to have a baby. She'll wait here for us.
Butz: Thanks, Koko!
Koko: Kue!

[Our heroes hop on Boko and ride around... ]
[In the town of Tule]
1: So, have you become an expert?
[Yes...] Then go over to the Beginner's Hall and tell 'em that!
[No...] Oh well. Don't sweat it, you'll get there!
2: No more crystals...
3: So you found the princess who disappeared from Tycoon?
4: I'm all dizzy... look around, and it seems like everything around our town is different!
5: This cave appeared in the west, and there's a rumor that a turtle ghost is down there!
6: The wind stopped, and so the sky's dying...
7: Over on that peninsula to the south, there's some kind of boat with a propeller on it!
8: (kid running around) I'm getting tired...
9: Hey, there's a party going on in Tycoon, isn't there? Maybe I'll go too!
10: Don't you feel like the world is different somehow?
[In the pub]
11: So the pirate captain is really a princess, huh?
12: (guy near the dnacers) I wasn't peeking at them! I swear!
13: Don't see too many pirates these days.
[At Zokk's house]
Zokk: So Faris the pirate captain is really Princess Sarisa! What a surprise! But I'm truly glad that those two got back to the castle safely.
[At the Beginner's Hall]
Receptionist: Are you a beginner?
Receptionist: Well! I'll teach you the good stuff!
The 'Suppin' can equip any kind of weapon or armor. The 'Mimic' can equip everything except the Ribbon. Since their strength and magic power are low, they're pretty weak, but they'll be fine if you've mastered other jobs. The 'Suppin' and 'Mimic' get all the stats and abilities that come with any jobs you've mastered.
For example, a Suppin who's mastered Knight, Black Mage, and Thief will have the strength of a knight, the magic power of a black mage, and be able to see hidden passages and dash like a thief. Plus, you'll be able to attach two abilities. So once you've mastered some other jobs, the Suppin and Mimic can be really strong!

[Suddenly, northwest of Tycoon, they fall into a hole!]
Butz: Owww!!
Kururu: Guess we tried to jump too far...
Butz: Boko! This is all your fault!!
Boko: Kue!
Kururu: You better not hit Boko!

Kururu: Butz, what's that!?
(Fight with Antlion)

Butz: So this a monster nest... oh man, just what we need...
Kururu: Now what'll we do?
Boko: Kue...

(a rope comes down from above and Butz can't get to it...)
Butz: Will you quit that!?
Faris (holding the rope): Admit you did wrong? OK, come on up!
Butz: Faris!!
Faris: Whose idea was it to just leave me back there!?
(Butz and Kururu shake their heads)
Faris: Better not do that again!
Butz: But why did you...
Faris: Come on, I'm no princess! (laughs)
Kururu: Ouch!
Butz: What happened?
Kururu: I'm OK; it was just this little thorn.
(Faris rejoins!)

[Then, our heroes happen upon a small cave which wasn't there last time we visited this world... turns out it's Ghido's Dwelling! How did it get here? ...]
Butz: Ghido! Hey!!
Ghido: Sorry, sorry... I ended up here after the shock of the two worlds merging back into one...
Ghido: And I couldn't do a thing! Ho, ho, ho!!
Butz: Ghido... you say the two worlds merged into one...?
Ghido: Hmmm... the legend couldn't be true, could it? Even I don't believe it... but supposedly, 1000 years ago, Butz's world and Kururu's world were one and the same.
Butz: One world!?
Ghido: Correct.
Butz: Then why did the world split into two?
Ghido: To seal off the power of "mu".
Butz: "Mu"?
Ghido: Yes. A thousand years ago, there was an powerful evil Enuo. The Enuo had the power to control the "mu". The battle continued on for quite a while, but finally the humans defeated him using the Twelve Legendary Weapons. But even they couldn't destroy the "mu" that the Enuo had created.
So, as a last resort, the people split the crystals into two parts. And since they split the crystals, which keep the world in balance, the world itself split in two.
And in the gap between the two worlds - the "Cleft of Dimension" - they sealed off the "mu".
Butz: So what Exdeath was saying was true...
Lenna: Returning the world to its original state...
Faris: But the crystals were lost...
Butz: The wind won't come back... the blessings of earth and water, the power of fire... they're gone, never to return...

Kururu: Hey! This splinter hurts!
Butz: Exdeath!
Exdeath: Fwa, ha, ha... I turned myself into a little splinter, and I've been waiting for this very moment!
My real objective is to get my hands on the power of the "mu" that's been sealed up in the Cleft of Dimension!
Butz: What!?
Exdeath: So that's why I had to return the world to its original form! Fwa, ha, ha!

Ghido: It looks like the Cleft of Dimension is going to appear in this world!
Faris: Is that where the "mu" is?
Exdeath: Yes! That's the thing I'm after! And now I shall obtain the ultimate power, the power of "mu"!
Butz: Not if we can help it!

(Exdeath hits Ghido and Butz, and Tycoon is sucked into the "mu"!)

Kururu: Tycoon Castle!
Faris: Lenna!!
Exdeath: Excellent! Behold, the power of "mu"! The ultimate power which shall devour everything! And soon it'll be all mine!
Faris: Lenna! Why yoouuu----!!!!

(Our heroes are shot by Exdeath)

Exdeath: Die, you stupid fools!!
Exdeath: Why you... you turtle!
(Ghido and Exdeath fight)
Exdeath: Hmm... you're not too bad!
Ghido: Don't forget.. I've been around for 700 years!

Exdeath: Now I'm all-powerful!! Stupid cretins!

Ghido: That Exdeath! We've got to do something before he gets the power of the "mu"!
Ghido: Hey, is that...?
Butz: The Ancient Library...
Ghido: What!!? The Ancient Library of legend!? So it was in your world!
Ghido: Let's go! The books we need to defeat Exdeath are in the Ancient Library!
(At the Ancient Library)
Scholar: Ghido!
Ghido: You're the scholars from Surgate!
Scholar: We've put the two halves of the Book of Sealings together!
Ghido: Hmm...

(Exdeath's Castle Theme)
Ghido: OK, time for a strategy session! The two worlds have become one again. And the power of "mu", which was sealed in the Cleft of Dimension, is about to return!
Butz: Then let's go there!
Ghido: Impossible! There are hordes of monsters sealed up in there along with the "mu"! Their strength is just too powerful... it would be pointless for you to go there now.
Butz: Then what should we do?
Ghido: You have to open the seal on the Twelve Legendary Weapons!
Butz: Twelve legendary weapons?
Ghido: Right. And for that, you'll need... this Book of Sealings! It was split in two, but now, if the legend is correct... the book should show you the way to go!
(Shinkirou no Machi theme)
Butz: The book!
Ghido: If the "mu" should return, the book shall speak to you, Light Warriors... [The book began to speak...]
Book of Sealings: The twelve weapons that we used to defeat the Enuo are sealed up in Koozer Castle. The keys to open these seals are the four Slabs...
One is sealed up with the spirits of the past, guarded by the earth...
One is in an island shrine, guarded by the wind...
One is in a place deeper than the ocean floor, guarded by fire...
One is behind a waterfall, guarded by water...
Our servants are sealed away... to open the seal, you need the Four Slabs. When you move the Slabs, our servants shall revive...
The ultimate white and black magic, Holy and Flare... Time and space magic, Meteo... Leviathan, the King of the Seas... and Bahamut, King of the Dragons... when you reach the gates, hold this book up and the way to the seal shall open...

Got the Book of Sealings!
Ghido: Make sure to open the seals on the Twelve Weapons before Exdeath gets the power of "mu"! We're all counting on you! As for the first slab... it's "sealed up with spirits of the past, guarded by the earth"... that would be the Pyramid in the Quicksand Desert! Butz, Faris, Kururu! The fate of the world is riding on you! Please succeed!

Scholar 1: It should take a while before Exdeath gains control of the "mu"...
Scholar 2: Since the two worlds have combined into one, the Sealed Castle of Koozer should lie to the east of Tule.
Scholar 3: Hmmm... if you put the two worlds together... that means the Ancient Library would be here... ah, now I get it...
Scholar 4: Split the crystals in two, and the world splits in two... the power of "mu" wouldn't be sealed up if that hadn't happened.
Scholar 5: Says here that there's a city sealed up in the Cleft of Dimension, where they've got fantastic magic, weapons, and armor from a thousand years in the past... Now that the Cleft of Dimension's appeared, I wonder where that city would be...?
Scholar 6: Cid and Mid headed off the Crescent Island, and they haven't come back yet.
Scholar 7: Since the world's merged into one, the Book of Sealings has become one as well...
Scholar 8: Is the world going to be enveloped in darkness?
Scholar 9: It's written here that there's an evil forest and cave sealed up in the Cleft of Dimension.
Scholar 10: It's all useless anyway... even if we do manage to defeat Exdeath, the crystals are gone...
Scholar 11: Exdeath's really a tree... I suppose that's why he turned himself into a splinter...
Scholar 12: Supposedly, the places where the Slabs are located are guarded by Gargoyles.
Scholar 13: Please prevent Exdeath from getting the power of "mu"! Shall I read to you from the Book of Sealings...?
13: "The 'mu' is the mother that gives birth to the light..." ...what's that mean?
14: While we were burning books, we happened upon this song... [Got Song of Magic! Continue singing it, and a mysterious force will raise your magic power!

[Town of Karnak... in case you head north]
1: The world has changed. I can just feel it.
2: A castle's appeared near the Ancient Library.
3: The Queen might not be getting better any time soon...
4: It looks like they discovered something near the library.
5 & 6: Feels a little colder, doesn't it?
7: We can still make weapons and armor, but since we can't use the power of the crystals, the prices have gone up.
8: There's a pretty scary monster named Dorm Kimaira out in the desert...
[In the pub]
9: I've heard that there are dwarves underground who can make fantastic armor and gear.
10: Do you believe in dwarves?
11: I'm sure dwarves really exist.
12: Gotten any better at the piano?
13: The fire's weakening...
14: How's old Cid doing?

[In Surgate Castle]
Guard 4: The scholars all headed for that building to the south.
Guard 11: The two worlds used to be one? No way do I believe that!
Guard 12: That buliding that appeared to the south... it's a library, right?
[The other people say the same things as in World 2.]

[At the Ancient Tree]
Butz: The Ancient Tree...
Faris: The Muah Forest's trying to come back to life...
Kururu: But Grandpa... Grandpa won't ever come back...
Faris: Lenna, and Dad...
Butz: So many lives... all gone...
Kururu: We've got to stop Exdeath! For every human being in the world... no, not just humans... all living things!
Faris: I can't bear to see any more lives lost...
Butz: Well,

[At the Desert]
Butz: The quicksand's stopped!
Kururu: Since the two Earth Crystals have shattered, the power of the earth is completely gone...
Faris: The earth's weakened!

(Fight with Gargoyles; the Book of Sealings rises up)
Kururu: The Book of Sealings!
"The place where the slab rests, sealed away with spirits of the past, guarded by the earth..."

[Journey through the Pyramid; note that there's no boss at the top!]
Got the 1st Slab!!
Butz: Huh!?
Kururu: There's some writing on the slab... "Bahamut, King of the Dragons,"...?
(Shot of the place where you landed the airship, way back in World 1... still remember this? ^^)
Kururu: The peninsula's sinking!! (Bahamut flies through the air)
Butz: Here he comes! (Everyone braces for a fight)
Bahamut: I'll be waiting for you... at the top of the Northern Mountain...
Faris: Look! The airship's floating this way!

[On the way back, at the Ancient Tree]
Kururu: Hiryuu!
Faris: Lenna!! (Lenna's been possessed by Meryujiinu)
Butz: Lenna! Snap out of it!
Lenna: Now I've acquired this body...
Faris: Lenna!
(Exdeath's theme)
Exdeath: Go, Meryujiinu! You who've been sealed in the Cleft of Dimension for a millennium...
Butz: Exdeath!
Exdeath: Fwa, ha, ha... the monsters in the Cleft of Dimension have now become my servants!!
Butz: Urgh...
Faris & Kururu: Lenna! Stop!!
Exdeath: Now I'll watch you slowly die... at the hands of your own friend!! Fwa ha ha ha....
Butz: Exdeath...
Exdeath: But first I'll do away with that turtle friend of yours, right in front of your very eyes!

(The Ancient Library is sucked into the "mu"!)
Exdeath: Soon, this power will be all mine, and the whole world shall kneel down before me!! Fwa, ha, ha!!!!
Butz: Len... na... ... stop...
(The Hiryuu's desperate attack separates Lenna's body from that of the monster!)
Butz: Now!!

(Fight with Meryujiinu)

Butz: Lenna!
Lenna: Butz, I...
Faris: Lenna!
Lenna: Faris, Kururu... the castle... I was trapped in the darkness too...
Faris: We understand... try not to talk...

(Lenna rejoined!)

[Back on the airship]
Lenna: The entrance to the Cleft of Dimension is where the castle used to be...
Kururu: We've gotta hurry! Before Exdeath gets the "mu"!
Faris: But Ghido said we'd never be able to win with the strength we've got now...
Butz: But the Twelve Legendary Weapons in the Sealed Castle of Koozer... let's hurry up and go there!

(Cut scene in the Cleft of Dimension)
Exdeath: This power of "mu"... can't I control it? How about this! "Mu"!! Show me your power!!
Go! Destroy the world!! Show me the true power of "mu"!!
(Several cities are sucked into the mu)

Kururu: He's sucking towns into the "mu"!!
Butz: Exdeath!! Stooooopppp---!!!
(The Moogle Forest gets sucked into the mu)
Moogles: Kupo--!! Kururu! Kupo!!
(Lix gets sucked in as well)
People in Lix: Buuuutz--!! Heeeelp!
Lenna: Oh my...
Faris: Butz, your home... the town of Lix...
Kururu: My gosh... this is...
Butz: Aaaargggghhhhhh------!!!!
(Butz flies the airship around the world several times ^_^)
Faris: Butz, stop!

[On the second floor of the Sealed Castle of Koozer, where the Twelve Legendary Weapons are]
Butz: The slab!
Slab: Three of the seals shall break... stand in front of the weapon and speak... the seal will open and the slab will break...
Butz: Three of the seals... so we can choose three of the weapons...
[Cut to Exdeath in the Cleft of Dimension]
Exdeath: Ah, my servants! Monsters of the Cleft of Dimension! Those warriors who are being guided by the light of the crystals are now after the ancient slabs... we mustn't let the slabs fall into their hands! The consequences would be disastrous!
Monster: We'll stop them!
Exdeath: Go, my monsters!! And I shall have the power of "mu" for my very own!

[In the castle of Surgate]
Guard 1: This is the castle of Surgate, and we'll protect it at all costs!
Guard 2: I can't believe the Ancient Library's really gone... but we managed to save some of the scholars; they fled into this castle.
(In the King's Hall)
Scholar: We were the only ones who could get back here...
Scholar 2: Please stop Exdeath from getting the power of "mu"! Shall I read to you from the Book of Sealings?
Scholar 13: Since the two worlds have recombined, the Sealed Castle of Koozer should lie somewhere east of Tule...
Guard: If Exdeath gets the power of "mu" in its entirety, then the world is ruined...
Soldier: What the heck is that big black thing!?
Soldier: Oh man, the world's ruined! Stick a fork in us, 'cause we're done!
[You can get Levitate if you haven't already... I put the dialogue in World 2's script.]

[At the Castle of Koozer]
Minister: Lenna! You're all right! ... What's that book?
Oh! Would you like me to read it to you?
Tycoon Scholar 1: We brought the water with us from the Wind Shrine.
2: "Protected by the wind, in an island shrine..." does that mean the Solitary Island Shrine west of Tycoon?
3: This castle just suddenly showed up in the exact spot where Exdeath was sealed up!
4: "Behind rushing water..." A waterfall, maybe?
5: Has the Cleft of Dimension really appeared right over Tycoon?

[In Crescent]
1: There's a mirage town that appears inthe forest... well, that's just a rumor, I guess.
2: A strange-looking tower suddenly appeared! What's going on!?
3: They say there's an illusionary town that appears in the forest... is it really true?
4: We can't seem to make anything on this land anymore... could it be because of the Earth Crystal shattering?
5: There's an old song in this town... "The tower on the left's the tower of magic... Strength doesn't mean a thing!"
6: There's an old song in this town... "The tower on the right's the tower of might! Magic'll do you no good!"
Mid: A tower appeared on the Catapult! Right on top of there! And Grandpa! He's stuck!!
[In the Inn]
Girl: Hey, tell us about the Elemental!
Storyteller: The elementals make nature their friend! Damage floors won't affect you, and you won't fall into trap doors!
Little kid: Hey, tell us about Dwarves!
Storyteller: Dwarves make the best weapons in the world! And they really exist, too! They're not just a legend! [In the Bard's house]
Bard: (if you've played all eight pianos) That's a nice melody. Here, I'll give you this song. (Got the Song of Strength! Sing it in battle, and your strength will gradually rise.) (Got the Hero's Song! Sing it in battle, and your levels will gradually rise.)

1: What's with that big tower that showed up out in the desert there?
2: Can't catch fish anymore.
3: A desert just showed up out west there. Weird, huh?
4: The wind and water are dead... Can't send boats out any more.
Woman near barrels: Think I'm beautiful?
[No...] Pbbt!
[Yes...] Heh, you thought I was a girl? (now he looks like Butz) I'm getting good at this mimic business! But I've got to keep practicing!
Woman near Pub: A big dragon flew up to the Northern Mountain! Really!
[in Pub]
6: So the Worus Tower sunk? We could probably get in there if we only had a submarine.
7: Some weirdo was in here mimicing everything we did! He was heading out to the Worus Tower, but since it sunk... I guess...
Man: My wife says the darnedest things! Some kinda nonsense about a big flying dragon!

Wolf 1: What's happening to the world? ... If only Kelgar were still alive...
2: It looks like a shrine's shown up right in the middle of the Big Bridge...
3: Has Exdeath really revived...?
4: Remember Tsouss who went to protect the Fire Crystal? He was my brother...
5: Kelgar was such a strong warrior...
6: There're some weird sounds coming from that well over there...
7 (in Kelgar's house): All four of the Braves of Dawn are gone...
Voice in the well: F... frog...... [wizard pops out!]
Wizard: Think you folks could get me a frog? I really want one! [Capture the "Kornago", and come visit him again...]

1: A castle appeared up north! What'd they do? Conjure it out of thin air?
2: Those islands down south have turned into one long land mass.
Adventurer in pub: ... but, now that there's a castle there...

[Muah... I never thought to come here before the Pyramid, but I suppose you can. In fact, if you haven't run from any battles, you should come here to get the...]
1: Somebody opened the lock on the shed! They say that's the shed where the ghost lives!
2: Exdeath's come back to life? The nightmare from 30 years ago... returning...
3: The Great Forest of Muah's gone!
(behind the shed)
Old man: Ah... you must be truly brave to have come this far. But it might just be strength that got you here. I suppose you'll have to let your own self-confidence decide that. If you truly believe that you're brave, take the box on the left. If you think you're a coward, take the box on the right. Whichever you like is fine, but you can only take one. (Well, it's up to you. ^^ Note that the directions he's talking abut are from his, and the screen's, point of view.)
(In the pub)
8: The forest... it's a desert now...
9: So the forest is starting to come back in the spot where the Ancient Tree was? I'm glad.
10: I tried wandering a little in the desert... what's that big building out there?
11: Exdeath even managed to get Ghido...
12: I'm telling you, something funny's happened to the world! Mark my words!

1: That town to the east got sucked into the blackness! Are next? I can't sleep at night; I'm so scared!
2: The world's being sucked into darkness... this is really scary...

[Pirates' base, revisited]
Faris: Syldra! I knew you were still alive!
Butz: Hey Faris, what's going on?
Lenna: Yeah, what are you looking at?
Faris: But... but Syldra was right there...
Kururu: He's called Syldra?
Faris: Kururu!! You see him!?
Kururu: Syldra's spirit says that he wants to help you, Faris...
Faris: Really...?
Kururu: Syldra's so sweet.
Call Monster "Syldra"!

Pirate: Chocobos are so cute once you get used to 'em! I wonder if Koko's baby'll be born soon...
Drunk pirate: Hic--!
Koko: Kue! Kue!
Kururu: She says to be careful. Thanks!
Pirate on bridge: One time my uncle rescued this little girl in the water... she kept calling herself "Farifa", so we named her "Faris".
Pirate 4: Our captain's really the princess of Tycoon! Get a load of that!
Old guy: That bird Boko's feeling all better now! They're even gonna have a child! Ha ha ha! (Exdeathian laugh)
Pirate 5: We're so selfish... that's the pirate business for ya!
Pirate 6: 'Cause of the earthquake, this base ended up being connected to that cave...
Pirate 7: Don't worry, Captain. We'll be OK while you're gone!
Another drunk pirate: Captain--! I love you so much! Hic--!

[At Illucia, the mirage town (Shinkirou no Machi in Japanese)]
1: We live in the Cleft of Dimension... travelling through time...
2: This is the town of illusion... it drifts through the Cleft of Dimension...
3: You can speak to us!? Have we returned to the real world?
4: In the Cleft of Dimension, time stops in this town...
5: A milllennium ago, I saw it... the world split in two... and our town was sucked in...
6: A strange bird showed up here...
7: There's a Phoenix Tower in the desert. Supposedly, that's where a dead dragon will revive in the form of a phoenix...
8: The evil mage Enuo who tried to take over the world using the power of the mu... he was sucked into the "mu" and disappeared.
[In the pub]
9: This town is an illusion; it appears and disappears...
We're travellers who come to life once every thousand years...
Hey, that would make a nice song! What do you think?
10: Now that time has returned to this town, does that mean that the "mu" has reappeared?
11: Ghosts and monsters are hiding in the walls of the Phoenix Tower... search the walls and see for yourself.
Bartender: The Enuo was immortal. But in exchange for acquiring the power of "mu", he lost his invulnerable body.
13: You know what I think I'll do? ... Yeah, that's the ticket! I'll ride all the way around the world on a chocobo! If you do it, I'll give you something good...
14: Somewhere in this town, there's a piano. But nobody ever plays it anymore.
15: There are two of each kind of merchant in this town.
16: (wizard guy in back of the item shop) Here, I'll tell you about how rings work...
The Flame Ring (Honoo no Yubiwa)... absorbs fire, defends cold, and is weak against water.
The Coral Ring (Sango no Yubiwa)... absorbs water, defends flame, and is weak against thunder.
The Angel's Ring (Tenshi no Yubiwa)... defends against "Zombie" and "Old".

[At the shrine of the Solitary Island]
"The place where the slab rests in an island shrine, guarded by the wind..."
Stalker: You may think you're something... but you're just puny little girls! Ha ha! I, Stalker, shall do away with you all!
[After defeating the boss "Stalker"]
Got the 2d Slab!
The Fork Tower, where the ultimate white and black magic lies, is opened!
Kururu: There's something written on the slab...
"The tower where the ultimate white and black magic lies... the Fork Tower... is split into two parts. If the two magics at the top of each tower aren't taken simultaneously, the tower will explode."

[At the Fork Tower]
Kururu: The tower'll explode if we don't take the two magics at the same time...?
Butz: So we have to split into two groups...

(Split into two parties... which side will Butz go on?) [Repeat this for all four members.]

[At the top of the Strength Tower]
We've got to take them at the same time!
People at the other tower: Got it!
[Battle with "Minotaur" and "The All-Knowing"; get "Holy" and "Flare"]
Butz: The tower's disappearing!
(Go into the Catapult to meet Cid and Mid again)

[Acquiring the Submarine]
Cid: (in central gear room) Phew! Man, am I dizzy!
Mid: Grandpa! Are you OK?
Cid: Oh, heck, yeah! You didn't think I was getting senile, did you?
Cid: I found some new techinques in those books! Now we can get the Airship to go underwater!
Butz: Really!?
Cid: Nothing's impossible for me!
Cid: Let's go, Mid!
Mid: Yeah!
(frenzied activity)
(cut to the airship)
Mid: Almost done!
Kururu: Cid's doing his best.
Mid: My grandpa... he thinks that it's all because of his inventions that the world turned out like this...
Kururu: But it's not because of his...
Mid: Yeah, he knows that. So now he wants to make sure that his inventions are used for peace.
Cid: All finished!
Cid: If you want to go underwater, select "down" and press the "A" button.
Butz: Thanks, Cid! Thanks, Mid!
Cid: Butz...
We can't wield swords or anything... all we can do is technologial stuff.
Cid: But we'll do everything we can! We'll leave the rest to you...
Butz: OK, let's go!
Lenna: So now we can go under water?
Faris: There's another slab under the ocean floor...
Kururu: Take care of Cid!
Mid: Come back again sometime, OK...
Butz: Let's go!

[At the Great Deep]
Book of Sealings: The slab rests in a place deeper than the ocean floor, guarded by flames...
(While chasing the third slab, our heroes find themselves in... the Dwarf Kingdom!)
Dwarf 1: Lali-ho!! We've only got 5 people, but it's still a great
kingdom, lali!
Dwarf 2: Do you know the "Magic Lamp"? If you go back to where you got it, the lamp's power'll revive.
Dwarf 3: Lalibo's off digging a tunnel, lali! Says he's gonna go all the way around the world!
Lalibo: I've dug all this way, but there's something weird about the ground above, lali! Must be forest up there. (Shot of map)
(The 5th dwarf is selling some equipment in the other room.)
[B7F - Battle with Phobos, Nereid, and Triton]
There's something written on the slab... "The magic sealed away in the river of magma..." Got Meteo!

(In the Istory Waterfall Cave)
[B7F] Got the 4th slab!
Little red monster: That slab... I can't let that out of my hands... If Exdeath gets the "mu", a world of us monsters will be born! And I can't let you interfere!!
(Leviathan crushed the monster!)
Leviathan: My power of water cleanses and flows over everything... and you who have the power to fight the "mu"... I'll never give it to the likes of you!
(Fight with Leviathan)
Call Monster "Leviathan"!

[In the basement of Bal Castle... you can get here through the Cave of Jacole]
Odin: So, you came here to defeat me? But I haven't the time to fight with you... I'll give you 1 minute; is that all right?
(Say yes, and...)
After a minute passes, I shall slice through you without mercy. Do you still wish to fight me?
(Fight with Odin)
Odin: Enough!
Call Monster "Odin"!

[At the top of the Northern Mountain]
[Bahamut flies to the mountain]
Bahamut: You who open the seals... defeat me, and my power will be yours!
(Fight with Bahamut)
Call Monster "Bahamut"!

[At the top of the Phoenix Tower (30F) ]
Lenna: Hiryuu!
Kururu: Is that the Hiryuu who saved you?
Lenna: What's he doing?
Kururu: He says he wants to help you...
Lenna: Hiryuu!
Kururu: Lenna... the Hiryuu knew that he didn't have much longer to live...
Lenna: When he saved us back in the forest...
Kururu: He came to this tower because he wanted to use the last of his life to help you...
Lenna: Hiryuu!!

[Lenna's flashback scene]
Lenna: You mean there's nothing we can do to save Mother?
King: I tried doctors... the sickness can only be cured with the tongue of a Hiryuu.
King: Lenna! What do you think you're doing with that knife!? ... I can't believe you!
King: Wait!
Jenica: I'll handle this.

Jenica: Lenna! If you kill that Hiryuu, they'll become extinct. And... your mother dearly loved that dragon. Even then, you wuld cut out its tongue?
(If you answer "yes")
King: You fool! (He hits Lenna)
(If you answer "no")
Jenica: Your father comes here every day and grieves. But... it's all right.

Lenna: Oh... Mother... (she cries)

The Hiryuu became "Phoenix", and entrusted its spirit and power to Lenna...
Call Monster "Phoenix"!
Lenna: Thank you... Hiryuu...

[In the sunken Tower of Worus... remember that one crystal chip that you just couldn't get? ^_^]
Butz: Glub glub... we can only hold our breath for... glub... seven minutes!
Gogo: Finally I've got the great power of this crystal chip. And I won't give it to anybody! So just do as I say and drop it!
(If you don't...)
Gogo: My name is Gogo!
The famous Mimic!
Since the secret to being a Mimic is mimicing...
I'm going to do whatever you do!
If you fight, I'll fight...
If you use magic, I will too.
If you do what I do, you can surely win!

(Fight with Gogo...?)

Gogo: I give up!
Just like I said!
If I don't do anything...
you mimic that!
That is, it's OK if you don't do a thing.
That's what being a mimic is!
You passed!
Farewell! (Casts "Degeon" = "X-Zone")

[Entering the "mu"!]
Kururu: What's that!?
Lenna: The entrance to the Cleft of Dimension!
Faris: We're being sucked in!
Butz: We're gonna fall into the "mu"!

[After desert part...]
Monster:We monsters, who've been sealed here in the Cleft of Dimension for a millennium... Exdeath has released the power of "mu", and a world of darkness shall be born! Our world!!
You won't stand in our way... you'll die here in the Cleft of Dimension! Thanks to our dark powers!! Fwa ha ha...

[There's no boss in the ruins part]

[After forest part...]
Karophysteli: Now it's time for a little nap in the forest... forever!!
(Fight with Karophysteli)

[Then comes a waterfall/cave, then you enter a room with some books..]
Apanda: So, you got this far... But nonetheless your lives have come to an end! This book is a dimensional switch, and your fates were sealed the moment you disturbed it!
(Fight with Apanda)

Book from 1000 years ago: Suddenly it appeared in the sky! Omega, the monster without a soul! And the Shinryuu that followed it... even the brave warriors with the Twelve Legendary Weapons are no match for them! Best not to disturb them; let them rest quietly in the Cleft of Dimension...
Mage's book: At last I've got it... the secret of Giga Flare! During the instant when he powers up his magic, he's defenseless! [This refers to... well, you'll see!]

[In the Cleft of Dimension; castle portion]

[Battle with Apocaryops]
Apocaryops: If you're the warriors who have the power of the crystals, then now you shall die!

[On floor with jail cells and a bunch of old guys]
Purple-haired girl: Oh, thank you so much! I've been stuck here all this time! And you saved me! (kisses you)
[On the next floor...]
Girl: You can't run away; not after my kiss of death!
[Battle with Halicarnassus!]

[Battle with Twin Tania]
Twin Tania: That's it... beyond here lies the space where the power of "mu" is sealed, and I won't let you enter!

[In the blue and final part of the Cleft of Dimension]
Gilgamesh: Butz? Is that you? If it is, say so!! All these monsters are so scary... and I can't find the exit... I think I'm gonna cry! ... But where did you come from?
Butz: Well, we entered the "mu"... etc., etc...
Gilgamesh: Ah ha! Then we can get out!
Butz: ...
Gilgamesh: (realizes that Butz can't leave) Oh... well then... surely we'll meet again! If we're still alive, that is... but we will meet, I'm sure of it! And we'll fight as friends! Until then...

[During the fight with Necrophobia]
Necrophobia: This light... I won't let it fall into your hands! And with these four barriers, I'm invulnerable! Can you defeat me...?
(continue fighting for a long while...)
Necrophobia: My... my barrriers! Ah well, I'll just have to show you some of my true power!!
(Gilgamesh interrupts)
Butz: Gilgamesh!
Gilgamesh: Well, there's still time! I wasn't about to go into history looking like that!
Necrophobia: Hey, what's going on here!? I suppose I'll do away with you, too!
(Necrophobia fights Gilgamesh)
Gilgamesh: (to Necrophobia) Hmph! Gotta hand it to you; you're top-notch! You can even defeat the great Gilgamesh...?
Gilgamesh: Kururu... your father was such a strong man...
Kururu: Grandpa...
Gilgamesh: Faris... if you were to fall in love, you might be more feminine...
Faris: ...
Gilgamesh: Lenna! You're so kind to all living things... don't ever forget that gentle spirit...
Gilgamesh: Butz! I wanted to duel with you one-on-one... you have such good friends!
Butz: Gilgamesh...
Necrophobia: Die!! (casts Flare)
Gilgamesh: (to Butz) You're supposed to say that!

[After saving at the point created by Necrophobia, our heroes meet Exdeath!]

Exdeath: You're too late! Fwa, ha, ha!! At last I've got it! The ultimate power... power that can rule the entire world! The power of... "mu"!!
And now I'll dispose of you meddling fools! First, your friends!! Watch me suck them into the "mu"!

[Exdeath sends some more towns into the "mu"]

Butz: Stooop!!
Exdeath: Fwa, ha, ha!! Now I'll make you disappear into the mu as well!
[Exdeath creates "mu" in front of Butz and the party and sucks them in!]

Dorgan: Butz, get up!

[The Four Braves of Dawn suddenly appear! Galuf, Kelgar, Zeza, and Dorgan!]
Butz: Dad! Zeza! Kelgar!
[Galuf appears]
Kururu: Grandpa!!
Butz: Galuf!!

Galuf: Presenting... The Light Warriors!! Butz, Lenna, Faris and Kururu... while we hold back the "mu", defeat Exdeath! Only you, the Light Warriors, can save the world from the darkness! Go!!

Exdeath: What?? Why is the power of "mu" disappearing!? Aaarrghhh... take this!

Lenna: Father!
Faris: Dad!

The Four Braves of Dawn: Now! Go defeat Exdeath! Go, Light Warriors!

[Our heroes nod to one another]

Butz: Here we come, Exdeath!!

[Fight and Exdeath gets sucked into the "mu"!]
Exdeath: Why...!? I had the power of "mu"... What the...

Neo-Exdeath: I am NeoExdeath... I shall destroy all memory, all existence, and all dimensions...
then I too shall disappear... forever!!

[You've reached the final battle!! You can do it!! ^^]
