Opening[edit]

  • Cid of the Lufaine: Cosmos, the goddess of harmony. Chaos, the god of discord. Reigning from distant realms, the two gods have gathered warriors from all lands to led them in savage war. Cosmos and Chaos were of equal strength it was believed the conflict would last forever. But...

Shattered World[edit]

  • Cid of the Lufaine: The balance was broken. Those who answered Chaos's call created an inexhaustible force. And under vicious attack without relent, the warriors fighting for Cosmos started to fall one by one. The conflict that has continued for eons is now about to end in Chaos's favor. The world has been torn asunder, sinking into a vortex of disorder. As for the few surviving warriors--

--

  • Cosmos: I have been defeated by Chaos. The god of discord, Chaos...His brutal powers destroyed the balance of all things, threatening the fabric of reality itself.
  • (Projects herself across the world)
  • Cosmos: All existence is on the brink of doom. Ten of you remain---and you are last hope left to this world. I implore you. Obtain the light that even in a broken could never fade--the light of the crystals. The crystals embody the strength to face despair. When gathered, there is hope yet to save the world. The path to your crystal will be perilous...and different for each and every one of you. But you must believe in and follow your own path. Even if you know not where the path leads...

--

  • Squall: Not a problem. I've always gotten by on my own.

--

  • Zidane: If the treasure were really that easy to find, it wouldn't be a treasure hunt, would it?
  • Bartz: No horsing around though. This isn't the time for games. It's time for serious fun.

--

  • Onion Knight: You don't have to worry. I'm here with you. If it gets scary, just believe in me!
  • Terra: I'm counting on you.

---

  • Cecil: The paths to our crystals may be different for each of us, but we've strength in our allies.
  • Firion: And if we put that strength together, we'll have nothing to fear.
  • Cloud: I don't know...The god Chaos is his forces of disorder--and they're headed straight for us. But I'm ready for whatever comes my way.
  • Tidus: The tougher the enemy, the more fired up I get!

---

  • Cosmos: I thank you all--Though what remains of this world is on the verge of collapse...I must hold it together until you find your crystals. Forgive me...I want to be with you...But allow me to rest...Than soon..
  • Warrior of Light: Cosmos... Your radiant light shall always be with us.

---

  • Ultimecia: All shall bear fruit in due time. The ultimate mortal conflict--
  • Emperor Mateus: as well as the absolute end of the world. Perhaps the only thing that the one thing we can't grasp...is the whimsy of the gods.

Guiding Light[edit]

  • Cid of the Lufaine: The world is shrouded in darkness. It seems that Chaos's shadows would engulf all. But light is not gone. The crystals, shining even in the depths of despair--It is said that hope can be restored if the ten surviving warriors can take hold of them. Now the journey begins for the Warrior of Light.

  • Warrior of Light: Cosmos...We have heard your wish, and we shall fulfill it. With the crystals in our hands, we shall bring hope to the world--
  • Garland:And where do you think you're going?
    • Warrior of Light: Garland!
  • Garland: Do you dare run from a battle?
  • Warrior of Light: I do not intend to run from anything.
  • Garland: Then let us start. Destiny is at hand We might as well enjoy it
  • (Fight)
  • Garland: You truly think that you can save this world?
  • Warrior of Light: That is precisely our mission. Our hopes have not been crushed yet.
  • Garland: What a fool. What you hope for is nothing but an illusion. Pursue it, and it will run. You may draw near, but never obtain it.
  • Warrior of Light: What?
  • Garland: Eventually, you will see...the truth behind this conflict...and the world will betray you!
  • Warrior of Light: No matter what becomes of the world...The light will always be with us.

  • Cosmos: Wait!
  • (Cosmos appears)
  • Warrior of Light: Cosmos...
  • Cosmos: Beyond this point, incredible danger await. The evils that lurk are great and many.
  • Warrior of Light: It is better if the foes are in one place. I may be able to find clues to the crystal.
  • Cosmos: There is a difference between bravery and recklessness.
  • Warrior of Light: As there is a difference between cautious and cowardly. Even in the direst circumstance, there will always be a way. You were the one who taught me that. When all hope seemed lost for this world, you showed me the way. That as long as we do not give up, there is always something we can do. That there is hope yet for those of us who are left. I have made a vow..to obtain the crystal and save the world. That vow gives me strength.
  • Cosmos: I understand your determination. Then I shall also make a vow...to believe in all of you until the end...
  • (departs)
  • Warrior of Light: Cosmos...That which we have all swore to...shall always by my guiding light.

  • (After Emperor Mateus leaves)
  • Garland: Looks like it's my turn now...
  • Warrior of Light: You...Garland?
  • Garland: Why are you so surprised?. As long as you live, I will keep coming back to life. That is the destiny this world has chosen for us.
  • Warrior of Light: What does that mean?
  • Garland: If the truth behind the conflict is what you seek...come find me..
  • (He fades)
  • Warrior of Light: Wait! The truth behind the conflict...?

  • Garland: So you've come...
  • Warrior of Light: To learn the truth and put an end this conflict.
  • Garland: Your foolish efforts amount to naught. We are trapped in eternal conflict..A cycle of battle without end.
  • Warrior of Light: Battle without end?
  • Garland: Indeed. As the conflict between the gods carries on for all eternity, so our battles will also be repeated forever and ever! That is the truth of this world! We cannot escape this fate! For better for you to rid yourself of any hope. It is time for you to accept the cycle and embrace combat's grim pleasure!
  • Warrior of Light:: Garland, I pity you, .
  • Garland: Pardon?!
  • Warrior of Light: You are bound by the chains of destiny and steeped in despair. Indeed, we have repeated our battles time and time again. You could say that we have been caught in the cycle of battle. But now that I know the truth, I can overcome it. All that is left to do now is to fight to end the cycle!
  • Garland: You can defeat me here, but that would only be another step in the cycle!
  • Warrior of Light: Whatever destiny the world may hold or me, I will never give up! This battle shall come to an end, and I shall save you, too!
  • Garland: You? Save me? I have heard enough nonsense!
  • (Warrior of Light charges at Garland)
  • Warrior of Light: Come, light!
  • Garland: This is the cycle of battle!
  • [They clash blades]
  • Garland: We will never come to accept one another. We shall always be in conflict!
  • [The Warrior jumps back]
  • Warrior of Light: Destiny--ends here!
  • Garland: End it if you can!

  • Warrior of Light: That light...The Crystal!
  • Garland: So you've obtained it? The Crystal holds the power to sever the shackles of time itself.
  • Warrior of Light: Then it has the power to bring this conflict to a close.
  • Garland:And even put an end to the gods' existence
  • Warrior of Light: What did you say?
  • Garland:What would happen to the gods if all the crystal were gathered? What would to world it its cycle of conflicts was suddenly broken? Not even the gods could foresee the bedlam that awaits...We shall meet again---in the near future.
  • Warrior of Light: (The cycle is not yet over. I will have to face Garland again unless we win the real conflict.), (No matter how many times darkness threatens to swallow the world--the light will always be with us)

--

  • Garland: Begone!
  • Warrior of Light: This ends here!

The Unending Dream[edit]

  • Cid of the Lufaine: Firion, the warrior with master over eight kinds of weapons--His journey began alongside Cloud, Cecil, and Tidus, yet the paths to their individual goals led them to separate and reunite. Now, Firion and Tidus are at a crossroad as each continues to search for his journey's end--
  • Emperor Mateus: You've already lost. This world's demise has begin and I will reign supreme.

  • Emperor Mateus:It looks like you are all alone. Have all your friends abandoned you?
  • Firion: Emperor! They have only only gone to do what they must!
  • Emperor Mateus: Then do you know what it is that you must do?
  • Firion: Of course I do! I must bring an end to this conflict!

  • Firion: Cosmos!
  • Cosmos: Cloud, Cecil, and Tidus have each obtained their crystals.
  • Firion: They've done it...They've really done it!
  • Cosmos: Yes. Because they never stopped walking down the paths they chose.
  • Firion: The paths they chose...
  • Cosmos: Have you lost yours?
  • Firion: I...never had a specific objective I could call my own...like winning against my father, or fighting alongside my brother. I just wanted to bring an end to the conflict. It's like the Emperor said. I'm only a tool without a will of my own.
  • Cosmos: That is untrue. You do have a goal. A dream that you have kept inside your heart for a long time.
  • Firion: But my dream is nothing special. It's more like...just a childish dream.
  • Cosmos: Tell me your dream---and the future you for it in your heart.
  • Firion: Wild roses...My dream is a world filled with wild roses. When the battle is over, I want to fill the world with flowers. A world where we can overcome what we have lost, where even the rain and the wind can provide us with strength...
  • Cosmos: It's a beautiful dream. A dream that was born out of none other than you. If you were a mere tool, you would not have such a dream.
  • Firion: Cosmos..You're right. It is my dream, and it is up to me to seize it.
  • Cosmos: I wish I could have such a dream...
  • (She fades away)
  • Firion: And you can. I promise.

  • Firion: (Many people lose their lives in times of war...They may die trying to protect friend, or trying to give strength to others. But in the end, they died. And there are others who lose hope, and grieve...A future where happiness blooms like a wild rose...That's what I'm fighting for!)

  • Emperor Mateus: You've came.
  • Firion: I will not lose to one who calls me a tool of war!
  • Emperor Mateus: You and your pathetic dream. I should erase such flights of fancy. You're far better off as just a tool.
  • Firion: Impossible. I have friends who share my dream. As long as my friends are here, the dream will never fade. You could never erase our hopes for the future!
  • Emperor Mateus: I that case.--I'll shall make everything mine.
  • [The Emperor creates a barrier around Firion]
  • Firion: What?! I'm trapped!
  • [An explosion ensures with Firion caught in the middle. He survives the blast, but collapses]
  • Emperor Mateus: You should had disposed of your fantasy and accepted me as master!
  • [Without warning, Firion's weapons whirl to life as they fly at the Emperor.]
  • Emperor Mateus: What?!
  • [As the emperor holds the weapons at bay, Firion raises up as he runs at Emperor Mateus]
  • Firion: There is no meaning in strength only used to hurt others. I have dreams...Dreams worth dying for!
  • Emperor Mateus: What will an insect like you do?
  • Firion: Believe in the future, persist in the present. That's what I'll do!
  • (Fight)
    • Firion: I give it my all!/Let's go!/I know no such thing as defeat. (Open)
    • Firion: Only I can best myself (Open, self)
    • Emperor Mateus: A would-be rebel, chasing dreams. (Open, Firion)
    • Emperor Mateus: This world can have but one Emperor (Open, self)
    • Emperor Mateus: I will not forget your face... (Lost)
    • Emperor Mateus: Run amok!
    • Emperor Mateus: Suffer!
    • Emperor Mateus: Away!
    • Emperor Mateus: My reign is absolute. (Ex mode)
    • Emperor Mateus: Suffer. All is mine to command. Lowly Worm. (Ex-Burst, Absolute Dominion)
    • Emperor Mateus: An insect defeat an emperor?/You are an unworthy opponent./So sweet. (Win)
    • Firion: Don't let it end! (defeated)
    • Firion: Can't run!
    • Firion: This is it! (Double Trouble)
    • Firion: I feel in my blood! (Ex Mode)
    • Firion: This decides! (Fervid Blazer)
    • Firion: This is the end! (Fervid Blazer, perfect)
    • Firion: You have much to learn./You let your guard down./That was a good fight/I'll take you on anytime./Firion: I have to get stronger still. (Win)
  • Emperor Mateus: This isn't over. Just you wait. Once you see how your dreams are crushed, you will be begging for my reign!

[The Emperor fades as Firion's Crystal appears]

  • Firion: (Perhaps the battle has just begin. In that case, let us keep dreaming. A world full of wild roses--Along with my friends, I'll make it come true.) It will come true. Someday!

  • Cid of the Lufaine: It was a humble dream. Too ambiguous to call a goal, it nevertheless was the dream that pulled him through his battles. His heart chose to believe in the future. His friends and his crystal answered his calll. He will no doubt continue on his quest. Believing that the current path is what will lead him to the future he so longs for--

The Pride of Youth[edit]

  • Cid of the Lufaine: The boy is known by the legendary title of "Onion Knight." His strongest weapon is his brilliant mind. It is what allowed him to survive many enemy encounters in spite of his youth. The boy has supreme confidence in his own intellect. In a world that was slowly decaying around them, the boy traveled with Terra, a girl with magical powers, in search of their crystals--with the conviction that his brilliance will lead him answers about the future.

  • Cloud of Darkness: Stay out of the way. Her true powers are beginning to awaken.
  • Onion Knight: What have you done to her!?
  • Cloud of Darkness: The legendary Onion Knight. A title far too grand for a child such a you. Do you not understand who caused this to happen?
  • Onion Knight: What?
  • Cloud of Darkness: Who was the brute who choose not to ease the girl's, but to use the sword instead? Who was the fool who dragged the unwilling girl here?
  • Onion Knight: I, I--
  • Cloud of Darkness: The girl knew in her heart all along. That is why she was so reluctant! You have only yourself to blame for this. Your shallow cleverness got the best of you! Curse your own ignorance and powerlessness. Nothing you can do can save the girl!
  • (Takes her leave.)
  • Onion Knight: Terra...

  • (Cosmos appears)
  • Cosmos: I felt the fear in Terra's cry. She is in pain. The Cloud of Darkness has taken hold of her with her curse...
  • Onion Knight: It's all my fault...
  • Cosmos: Yes. Because you were overconfident of your powers.
  • Onion Knight:Cosmos, you know how...You know how to save Terra, don't you?
  • Cosmos: You must defeat the Cloud of Darkness.
  • Onion Knight: Her...? But I can't fight her...I don't fight anyone I can't beat...Oh, right! The crystal! I should be able to save Terra if I can get my hands on the crystal..It has the power to save the world, right? Then I won't have to fight anybody! Please, just tell me where I should go find the crystal!
  • Cosmos: Avoiding conflict is certainly a choice. Few would say it is wrong. But is that truly what is in your heart?
  • Onion Knight:What's in my heart...?
  • Cosmos: The crystal lights the way to what you seek. It is yours if you look inside your heart and follow what is most important to you. I'm afraid that is all I can tell you.

  • Cloud of Darkness: Unconscious already...She's too fragile to be of any use.
  • (Onion Knight runs in)
  • Cloud of Darkness: Well, now. Have you not learned yet? Are you here to challenge us again?
  • Onion Knight: I don't fight anyone that I can't defeat. I will do whatever you want. So please, spare Terra's life.
  • Cloud of Darkness: So you have learned after all. Your decision is a wise one. Very well. Then you shall serves us. Prove yourself more useful than the girl.
  • Onion Knight: I didn't think you'd be so gullible.
  • (He sucker punches her and made it to Terra)
  • Onion Knight: No way I'm joining Chaos!
  • Cloud of Darkness: Foolish child...You should know better by now than to deceive us!
  • Onion Knight: I finally got it. I was a fool to defy my heart, just to bind myself to reason. I will protect Terra with my own strength. That's what's most important to me! Don't get me wrong--I still won't fight against anyone I can't beat. But I've decided in my heart to fight. That's why I'm going to beat you!
  • Cloud of Darkness: Enough chatter!
  • (Fades away, Onion Knight looks around his surrounds)
  • Cloud of Darkness: You have already taken such a beating...and you still want to save her?
  • Onion Knight: Gotcha!
  • (He seems to get the jump, only to find out he leaped into the line of fire.)
  • Cloud of Darkness: A lone heart will not change the world...What awaits when you awake is always--nothing but despair!
  • [hits Onion Knight, but he survives the blast.]
  • Onion Knight: Not even you can destroy this. What I've found is strength--Strength to protect everyone!
  • Cloud of Darkness: But can you use it?
  • (Fight)
    • Cloud of Darkness: We lust to destroy. (Open)
    • Cloud of Darkness: Meddlesome child. (Open, Onion Knight)
    • Cloud of Darkness: Vanish!
    • Cloud of Darkness: Begone!
    • Cloud of Darkness: Devour!
    • Cloud of Darkness: Stand and Perish!
    • Cloud of Darkness: Perish! ([0-form] Particle Beam)
    • Cloud of Darkness: Perish! Into the Darkness (Ultra Particle Beam)
    • Cloud of Darkness: Release the shadows! (Ultra Particle Beam, Perfect)
    • Cloud of Darkness: Hope, despair...They are what feeds me/All is done for the Void./One step closer to the Void...(Win)
    • Onion Knight: This won't be much of a fight./Don't underestimate me. / Being small has it advantages/You dare challenge me!? (Open)
    • Onion Knight: Huh, such a bad imitation. (Open, self)
    • Onion Knight: No matter the odds, I believe in myself! (Open, Chaos)
    • Onion Knight: Hmph. This doesn't really count. (loss)
    • Onion Knight: Dodge this!
    • Onion Knight: Thunder!
    • Onion Knight: How's that?
    • Onion Knight: You can't beat me! (Guiding Swipe)
    • Onion Knight: Now it begins! (Spellbook)
    • Onion Knight: See? It was really easy, too./I knew I was going to win./Piece of cake /I'm always up for a rematch./ I knew I was going to win/Looks like I won (Win)
  • Cloud of Darkness: We have been defeated by a child.
  • (Fades)

  • Cid of the Lufaine: The boy had never doubt his own intellect. He thought that avoiding mistakes and making decisions based on logic-instead of emotion--was the only way to reach the truth. But the boy has learned--that somethings that the head decides must be ignored in favor of the heart--that he can tap into immeasurable strength when he searches deep inside his heart. The light has banished the darkness and a momentary calm has returned to the world. The crystal shines like the light of dawn and softly envelops the pair's peaceful slumber--

Moonlit Knights[edit]

  • Cid of the Lufaine: The power of darkness and the power of light. Within the knight Cecil dwells two opposite powers. One who values the bonds of friendship, Cecil has been journeying together with Tidus and Firion. But he has yet to find the crystal. As the sees of misgiving take root in his heart, a shadow approaches. Could the words from the dark emissary give hope to Cecil.

  • Cecil:(I though if only I were diligent, what I sought would soon be mine. Yet still, the true path eludes me. What must I do to find the crystal? The world isn't waiting for me to--)
  • Golbez: You seem to be in a pensive mood, Cecil.
  • Cecil: Brother!
  • Golbez: Lose yourself in the fog of doubt and reverie, and you will never reach the crystal. It will forever remain but a dream.
  • Cecil: I lose my way because it is a dream.
  • Golbez: *laughs* What exactly do you think the crystals are? The true brilliance of the crystal is not visible to the eye. Casting about you gaze will not reveal a single mote of its light.

  • Golbez: So you've come, Cecil.
  • Cecil: Why tell me the secret of the crystal?
  • Golbez: And why have you come all this way? Most likely for the same reason. A brother cares for his kin. Cecil...I am here to gauge whether or not your are worthy of obtaining the crystal.

--

  • (After fight with Exdeath)
  • Golbez: Why has the crystal not appeared?
  • Cecil: What's wrong?
  • Golbez: You took on Exdeath yourself without depending on my aid. you've shown you have the ability to achieve what you desire. The crystal shines upon those who exhibit the strongest will. That is its secret. Seeing you are you are now, I thought you would be able to obtain it...
  • Cecil: I only fought him for you...Please, won't you join me?
  • Golbez: What?
  • Cecil: I must tell my friends what you just told me. They too seek their own crystals. Once the crystals are gathered, the battle will be over. Then, you and I, we could--
  • Golbez: Enough. I am merely your shadow. I could not accept the darkness, yet I do not belong to the light.
  • Cecil: What?
  • Golbez: You disappoint me, Cecil. Like this, you will not receive the crystal's eternal light.
  • (Leaves)
  • Cecil: Brother...! Why?

  • Cecil: I should return to my friends. But--
  • (Golbez appears)
  • Cecil: Brother! You came!
  • Golbez: To set you on the proper path.
  • Cecil: What?
  • Golbez: You cling to the skirts of your companions. Is that the sign of a strong will? The crystal will never shine on those who always depend on others.You must act alone to accomplish the goal you have bee given.
  • Cecil: But I cannot abandon my friends if they are in need! All I want is for us to look for our crystals together!
  • Golbez: So I see. In that case--
  • (Knocks Cecil down with a blast)
  • Golbez: Now do you see? The bonds between people are unreliably fragile. The friendship you believe in is nothing but an illusion.
  • (Golbez leaves)
  • Cecil: Brother...

  • Cosmos: Still confused?
  • Cecil: Cosmos... I'm not sure of anything anymore. Not once did I doubt that we could find the crystals by working together. In fact, I believed cooperation to be the only way. But my brother -- Golbez says that I must seek the crystal alone. Have I been naive to think we could work together? Is the bond I have with my friends really only an illusion?
  • Cosmos: Do you look to me for answers? The crystal does not shine on those who only depend on others. What your brother says is absolutely true.
  • Cecil: How could that--
  • Cosmos: Do not be trouble. Cast your worries aside, for that which you seek lies near.
  • Cecil: What?
  • Cosmos: You already know in your hear. To depend on others, and to work together with others--are they the same things to you? I know you can reach the light because you are worthy.
  • Cecil: Cosmos, does this mean--
  • Cosmos(as she leaves): The answer can be found inside you
  • Cecil: I...I must do this!

  • Golbez: There is a different air about you. You seem to have made a decision.
  • Cecil: Yes, I will return to my friends
  • Golbez: What?
  • Cecil: Brother...I do not travel with companions to cover my own weakness. Their presence gives me strength. They encourage and support me. I travel with them so that I can aid them as they have aided me. A certain strength can only be born in the presence of my friend. That's why! This what I believe!
  • Golbez: It looks as though our difference are irreconcilable.
  • Cecil: Brother...
  • Golbez: You are a knight. If there is such determination behind your thoughts...prove it with your blade, my brother!
  • [Fight]
  • Cecil: It's because I have friends that I can fight! Both light and darkness give me the guidance I need. Thus - I can turn Darkness...into hallowed light! Behold!
  • Golbez: You're naive, Cecil. Even knowing betrayal and despair, you would depend on the whims of others?
  • Cecil: I swear on this blade--I will not be dissuaded!
  • (Fight)
    • Cecil: It begins.../There’s no time to run!/My blade will lead me to the light!/Till my last breath!/I’ve no other choice./This ends for you…not I!/How is this fair?/This is rash…but still!/I mustn’t coddle the weak!/I’ll do it!(Open)
    • Cecil: This is a fight for me, and me alone!(Open, self)
    • Cecil: My brother… I will face you! (Open, Golbez)
    • Cecil: My comrades, only strengthen my blade! (Open, Chaos)
    • Golbez: Can you overcome me.../Never drop your guard.(Open)
    • Golbez: I am my own judge and executioner (Open, self)
    • Golbez: No escape!
    • Golbez: Time to depart. Farewell (Genesis Rock)
    • Golbez: Endure this (Night Glow)
    • Golbez: No mercy!
    • Golbez: That was underwhelming./Come back again./Your loss can strengthen you. (Win)
    • Cecil: Blazing Light (Paladin Force)
    • Cecil: Darkness (Soul Eater)
    • Cecil: I know my course! (Job Augment)
    • Cecil: This will seal it! The Moon leads me! Light and Darkness cast aloft! (Soul Shift perfect)
    • Cecil: I will not stop./A knight's path never ends/May you find peace./I knew I would trimuph!/I followed the path I must. (Win)
  • [after fight]
  • Golbez: It see the strength of which you spoke.
  • Cecil: The Crystal! This is ours, brother. We found this light together.
  • Golbez: Spare me the folderol. You found that on your own.
  • Cecil: But--
  • Golbez: This is only the beginning. Do your eyes see as far as the light shines?
  • Cecil: Brother...No matter the hardship, I'll face it head on, together with my friends. (And someday, with you as well..Because our bond is my guiding light.) My mind will not waver.

  • Cid of the Lufaine: After the fierce battle with his own brother, light finally shines on the gentle knight. Whatever trails and tribulations he may face, the belief in the bond he has with his friends shall never fade. Under the crystal's gentle glow, he makes a wish--that he and his friends might overcome this adversity. And that someday, he might walk alongside his brother again...

Journey, Courage, Friends[edit]

  • Cid of the Lufaine: Bartz, the adventurer, travels the world like a free-spirited wind. He was in the midst of a

friendly race with Zidane to see who could get his crystal first--but he was caught in a trap and transported alone to an enemy stronghold. A new adventure begins for the mimic warrior--


  • Bartz: Hey. Awright! The crystal!
  • Exdeath: Mwa-hahahaha! It seems the worm has finally slunk in.

  • Cid of the Lufaine: The crystal shined on the heart that loves companionship and freedom. It was not to be sought or found, but something close to him from the start. The wind races through the world--ever wandering, much like the heart of a true explorer...

Strength for Whom?[edit]

  • Cid of the Lufaine: Terra possesses vast magical potential inside. She travels in search of her crystal together with a boy known as the Onion Knight. He has already obtained his crystal, but she has no memory of when that happened. The boy has spoken little since she woke from her slumber. The truth has yet to be revealed--much like the powerful magic that lies dormant inside Terra...

  • Terra: (Ever since I woke up, it feels like I've forgotten something important. But I can't remember--what it could have been. Or even why I was asleep...), (But I know it will come back to me. And maybe then, I can find the way to the crystal...)

  • Kefka: Hello, my pretty! Oh! Another treat for me? You shouldn't have!
  • Terra: Kefka! What have you done to the boy?
  • Kefka: Who cares about that whelp? So how about it? Are you ready to come with me and destroy the world?
  • Terra: I am not like you!
  • Kefka: Oh, but you are! No use acting holier-than-thou. You know you'll hurt more people when you lose control again.
  • Terra: I've found a future I want to protect. No matter how strong my powers become...I will never lose sight of my dream!

  • Kefka: If you'd just let your powers take over and destroy your mind, you would have made such a better toy!
  • Terra: How could you--
  • Kefka: Oh, forget it. A coward who refuses to destroyed anything---is better off being destroyed by me!
  • (Kefka chases after Terra)
  • Kefka: Let the party begin!
  • Kekfa unleases blasts of energy with Terra no where in sight as the smoke clears.
  • Kefka: Was that it? I wanna play more!
  • Terra hides off
  • Terra: I mustn't ruin everyone's hopes--

    • Terra: I'm just glad it's over../Thank you for the Match./I was so...frightened.../There is still something I must do./This wasn't as bad as I'd feared/Thank goodness.../I have to be more careful.../If victory can make things clearer, then.../Everyone lusts for power, it seems./For all of our sakes, I won't lose!/(Win)
  • Kefka:I'll get you back
  • (Fades off)

  • Terra: (A dream can be about the smallest things. Having a dream gives a person strength. And that strength, in turn, will always lead to another dream.

Fate[edit]

  • Cid of the Lufaine: Destiny's burden weighs heavy on Cloud's giant sword. He travels in search of his crystal together with Firion, Cecil, and Tidus. But his eyes always gaze out to the distance searching for what awaits at the end of his struggles

--

  • Cloud: I feel like something is...calling me. A crystal? No something...darker.

--

Sephiroth: I knew you'd come. You always do as you're told, don't you?
Cloud: What?
Sephiroth: You look for a reason because you don't want to swept into a fight. But all you do is look. You do nothing to follow that desire. That is why you are so eager to make someone else's reason your own.
Cloud: What's your point?
Sephiroth: Your companions could get hurt, yet they'd still have the will to continue their search. But what about you? You're nothing but a puppet that gets swept away, unable to make any decisions on its own.
Cloud: You're wrong! I just-
Sephiroth: So...I'll continue to provide you with a reason--every time you need one.
Cloud: Shut up! I've had enough of being told what to fight for. I came here of my own will!
Sephiroth: All you've ever wanted was to cling to old memories.
Cloud: You're the one who can't let go!
[Begin fight]
Cloud: Sephiroth! It ends here. Go back to sleep.
Sephiroth: Accept it. I am the one who guides you--forever.

Sephiroth: Very well. Every time your eyes gaze upon it, remember...You were only able to obtain with my guidance. And I will continue to pull your strings.
Cloud: I decide my own path, even if I have my doubts. I have to find my own answer and tell my friends...like I promised. Until then...I'll keep fighting.

--- Sephiroth: Good to see you, Cloud.

The Lion Stalks the Savannah[edit]

  • Cid of the Lufaine: Squall is a noble warrior with the pride of lion. He is on his own when he sees his comrades under attack by the manikins. But to him, perhaps they are not comrades at all. They may be mere strangers accidentally born in the same world. Without any hesitation, he plunges into battle.

  • Squall: (A good-luck charm...)
  • (Cosmos appears)
  • "Cosmos": Did a good friend give that to you?
  • Squall: More like shoved it down my throat.
  • "Cosmos": I can see it on your face, Squall. You regret not going with them, do you not?
  • Squall: I don't regret anything. I just...never thought anyone cared about me. Sympathy is a burden I don't need. But it wouldn't hurt to know someone's got my back. Perhaps I..shouldn't have turned down their invitation.
  • "Cosmos": No. You made the right decision. In order to obtain the crystal, one must fight the real enemy that dwells inside his heart. That enemy must be confronted alone.
  • Squall: My real enemy...Her...
  • "Cosmos": Yes...Ultimecia, the witch who controls time. Defeat her, and the crystal shall be yours. It is a long and lonely road. Will you be able to maintain your lofty dedication to solitude?
  • Squall: That goes without saying. Or do you want me to swear it on this charm?
  • "Cosmos":(Revealed as a guise): No, you are doing fine.

  • "Cosmos":Take out your sword, Squall. Are you finally strong enough to fight me?
  • ["Cosmos" reveals herself to be...]
  • Squall: Ultimecia!
  • Ultimecia: I have been waiting for you...to obtain that level of ruthless determination.
  • Squall: Ruthless?
  • Ultimecia: Yes, the determination to stubbornly follow your own path. The merciless heart that abandons friends! That is what will lead you to your crystal.
  • Squall: I have abandoned my friends!?
  • Ultimecia: Deep inside your heart, you trust no one. That is why you act alone, is it not? By now, Kuja should be having his way with Zidane and Bartz. And you did not even try to go save them. Does that not prove you think nothing of them?
  • Squall: (Think nothing of them?)
  • Ultimecia: You're doing well. Such is life on the battlefield. Now, let me see---the strength of your pride!
  • [Squall refuses to fight.]
  • Ultimecia: Has fear taken hold of you?--I understand. I'll neither run nor hide. I shall waiting until the time comes.
  • [She leaves.]
  • Squall: It's not as simple as you might think.

  • Ultimecia: So you have come--having abandoning your comrades onto to satisfy your own desires.
  • Squall: I've only came to fulfill a promise. It's because of them that I can't allow myself to stop. I know that I'm not alone. That's why I can fight by myself!

  • [Ultimecia dodges]
  • Squall: How's this?
  • [Ready his attack when...]
  • Ultimecia: Time!
  • [Time freezes with only Ultimecia mobile within her Time Compression.]
  • Ultimecia (Walking past Squall as she conjures energy arrows to surround him): Foolish boy. Everything is an illusion. Your hopes, your friends--Your life itself--
  • [She ends the Compression]
  • Ultimecia: Shall fade.
  • [Squall fights off the arrows]
  • Ultimecia: So you would rather die hard?
  • Squall: Your ability to mess with time--is coming to an end!
  • Fight
    • Ultimecia: Let us begin./This battle is a waste of time./Poor child.../I am a witch that can manipulate time./You'll regret having met me./Resist no more./Are you sure you're ready?/I will deny all you stand for./Your timing couldn't be worse./Don't take pity on me!/Let me see how strong you are./Why stand in the way of a witch?/I hope your dreams are sweet./This will be over in a moment.

  • Ultimecia: You too shall soon realize...Time, it will not wait. No matter how hard you hold on...it escapes you...

  • Cid of the Lufaine: Fighting for his friends--even from a distance, even if alone. It was his resolve to fight alone that brought him the crystal. It's brilliance shines the way to his friend in distress. They hurry under the light. To save their comrade's precious life

  • Ultimecia: "Everything is fated to disappear...I." (dies)

Melodies of Life[edit]

  • Cid of the Lufaine: Zidane, the roving thief, is in search of his crystal. After parting ways with Squall, he continues on his exciting adventure with his partner, Bartz. But the strong bond between the two travelers is about to be threatened by deadly music. Will he find his true treasure beyond the trails that await him?

  • Kuja: We finally meet again.
  • Zidane: Kuja!
  • Kuja: You have such a considerate friend. He didn't even think twice before delivering you to my trap.
  • Zidane: So it's all your fault, huh...What did you do to my friends?
  • Kuja: You're still worried about others in this situation? Such recklessness.
  • Zidane: Just answer
  • Kuja: Don't like being alone? What would you do if you were to lose that which you were trying to protect?
  • Zidane: What?
  • Kuja: As one who shares your fate, I simply had to see how your heart would break upon realizing how powerless you truely are. Like a bird trapped in cage, you can only listen as they scream in terror...
  • Zidane: Grr...
  • Kuja: Your friends will get hurt, and there is nothing you can do.
  • Zidane: Shut up!
  • Kuja:I'll be looking forwards to your solo performance.
  • Zidane: Guys...

  • Zidane:(Guys? I don't---What should I do?)
  • (Cosmos appears)
  • Zidane: Today's not a good day for a date.
  • Cosmos: Zidane, don't be afraid.
  • Zidane: But I'm powerless. There's nothing I can do for them.
  • Cosmos: There is always something that can be done. Is there not?
  • Zidane: But...it might be too late...
  • Cosmos: Your friends believe in you. They do not think you will fail. You should believe in them.
  • Zidane: Believe...in them...
  • Cosmos: Your friends are strong.
  • Zidane: Yeah. You're right. They aren't the type to get beat up that easily. I have to make sure they're alright. that's---that's the least I can do! Thanks a lot, Cosmos. Wow, I guess I must be really look pathetic. It's usually me who's cheering up the ladies.

  • (Crystal appears, Zidane takes it)
  • Zidane: As long as I have friends, losing just isn't an option. Kuja, tell me something. Is it really so hard to trust in someone?
  • Kuja: What good is trust. You cling to others only because you are helpless alone.
  • Zidane: But if you have trust in others, then you're never alone.
  • Kuja: Cease with the noise! I've heard Enough! Never...When the curtain falls, it is I who shall bask in the applause...

Zidane: Is that

  • Cid of the Lufaine: At the end of darkness's performance, the treasure was his claim. Unwavering trust in his friends turn his fear into courage. No matter how deeep the world's despair, the shining light of trust will never fade. With the pursuit for his crystal at an end, he calls out to his dear friends...

---

  • Kuja: Peace is but a shadow of death, desperate to forget its painful past... Though we hope for promising years. After shedding a thousand tears, yesterday's sorrow constantly nears.
  • Zidane: As long as there is someone who remembers us, those memories and lives will go on forever… that’s living… right?
  • Fight 2
    • Kuja: If I die, I won’t have to be afraid anymore. But I’m not gonna die alone…“

Destiny Odyssey[edit]

  • Tidus: Can somebody tell me what the heck these crystals are anyway?
  • Cecil: Once we obtain them, will we be able to defeat Chaos?
  • Firion: If that is what Cosmos wishes, it is up to us to fulfill it.
  • Cloud: But what are we--What exactly are we fighting for?
  • Firion: What do you mean? Isn't it to defeat Chaos and bring back peace to the world?
  • Cloud: Cosmos only said that we had to get the crystals. There's no guarantee that defeating Chaos will bring peace. Nobody know for sure what's going to happen to the world.
  • Tidus: I think we just have to keep faith!
  • Cecil: We don't need to know much in order to fight, do we?
  • Cloud: I just...need some convincing. I don't want to find myself swept into more battles...
  • Tidus: (offscreen) Cloud...
  • Cloud: Can any of you guys tell me? If there's a good reason to be here fighting, I want to hear it.
  • Cecil: A reason to fight..I suppose I've never though about that before.
  • Tidus: I'm settling things with my old man! But that's a personal issue, I know...
  • Cloud: Good for you, Tidus.
  • Firion: Could you give me some time? I want to come up with an answer that would convince you.
  • (They move out)
  • Cloud: An answer, hm...

  • Zidane: Whew! You saved our hides. Thanks!
  • Bartz: Oh. Are you all by yourself?
  • Squall:Yeah
  • Bartz: Then you can come with is. Let's look for our crystals together!
  • Squall:(Why does this happen every time?) No offense to you guys--But I'd much rather be by myself.
  • Zidane: But doesn't it get...lonely sometimes?
  • Bartz: Well, I guess if wants to go off on his own...Ok, we're heading that way.
  • Zidane: We'll meet up later---after we get our crystals!
  • (Zidane and Bartz leave, the latter running back.)
  • Bartz: I almost forgot--
  • Squall: What is it?
  • Bartz: I thought you should have something. Here, take this.
  • (Bartz brings out a feather)
  • Squall: What's that nasty-looking feather?
  • Bartz: Hey, watch your mouth! That feather's been my trusted companion. Whenever I found myself in danger, this good luck charm saved me.
  • Squall: This is a battlefield. It's not the place to be concerned about others.
  • (Bartz gives him the feather)
  • Bartz: I'm just looking out for you. I'll be alright. I got Zidane with me. Just give it back the next time we meet. Promise, okay?
  • (Bartz runs off)
  • Squall: (Who said anything about a promise?)

  • Zidane: Hey, Bartz Wanna have a race?
  • Bartz: A race?
  • Zidane: Yeah. Whoever finds his crystal first wins. What do you think?
  • Bartz: So it's a treasure hunt. This is gonna be easy.
  • Zidane: Hey, don't forget. You're talking to a professional thief here.
  • Bartz: Then I'm going to be just like the thief and steal victory!
  • Zidane: The treasure...is this way!
  • Bartz: The treasure...is this way! Go Go Go!
  • Zidane: Is that supposed to be me?

  • Onion Knight: Crystals have the power to break through despair, huh? I wonder what they look like.
  • Terra: Do you think we can find them? What if we do find them, but we still can't save the world?
  • Onion Knight: Gods always have a habit of sounding pretentious, don't they? There's no proof that Cosmos is telling the truth, but we don't know that she's wrong, either. Anyway, our only choice is to believe and move forward. Let's start with what we can do.
  • Terra: Mm-hmm...You're right.
  • Onion Knight: Standing around here isn't going to give us any answers. Come on, let's get moving. You don't need to worry. I'm going to figure this all out.

  • Kuja: Are you enjoying your solitude?
  • Squall: What do you want?
  • Kuja: Just came to get my bait for Zidane-fishing. And a reckless, lonesome traveler like yourself is just what I needed.
  • Squall: Sorry, but I'm not interested.
  • Kuja: Beg pardon?
  • Squall: I see that Zidane has some worthless enemies.
  • Kuja: Bark while you can boy. You'll soon be yelping for mercy.
  • (Fight)
  • Squall: Knew you were all talk
  • Kuja: I've come to realize...that Zidane would never be interested in chasing a lone wolf like you. So, I have come up with a far better idea to make Zidane come to me.
  • Squall: Enough!
  • (Kuja teleport out of harm's way)
  • Kuja: I am done dealing with you. Just sit back and watch the second act unfold.
  • (Kuja disappears)

  • Firion: I've been thinking about why we fight. But...I'm finding it difficult to put into words.
  • Cloud: I see
  • Firion: There is one thing I came up with. Convincing or not...
  • Cloud: What's that?
  • Firion: The wild rose. There's something I'm longing to see. That's the reason I want to end this conflict. Of course that still all a dream
  • Cloud: A dream?
  • Firion:Yes. It's a dream I can't give up on. That's the reason I keep up fighting.
  • Cloud: Firion, will you fight
  • Firion: What?
  • Cloud: I want to know. I have to know if that dream is really strong enough. Strong enough to keep you fighting.
  • Firion: But Cloud-
  • Firion: Understood. I'll take you on.
  • (After fight)
  • Firion: It's not...over yet!
  • Cloud: Not bad at all
  • Firion: Like I said...I won't give up on my dream...
  • Cloud: Yeah but. I can't be like you
  • Firion: Why not?
  • Cloud: I've looked, but I'm still empty-handed. And without a dream, what do you suppose I should do?

  • Cecil: Did Firion give you his answer?
  • Cloud: Yeah. He says he has a dream. And that he'll keep fighting until he can make it come true.
  • Cecil: Sounds like Firion, sure enough.
  • Cloud: He told you?
  • Cecil: Yes, although he was embarrassed at first. He says he wants to create a world where wild roses grow in perpetual peace.
  • Cloud: Sounds so..childlike.
  • Cecil: Honest men have honest dreams.
  • Cloud: Maybe he wished it on a star. What about you, Cecil?
  • Cecil: I don't think I can give you the kind of answer you're looking for. But perhapts there is someone somewhere with an answer. Why not go and look for it?
  • Cloud: But I-
  • Firion: You should go, Cloud.
  • Cloud: You too?
  • Tidus: We're rooting for you!
  • Cloud: You really don't mind?
  • Firion: Just one thing: When you find your answer, you come and tell us what it is.
  • Cloud: Got it. That's a promise.

  • Terra: Wait a minute...
  • Onion Knight: What?
  • Terra: I feel something...Something very powerful from that direction...
  • Onion Knight: Do you think it's a crystal?
  • Terra: I can't tell. It's just a strong presence.
  • Onion Knight: Let's check it out. What's wrong?
  • Terra: Something about this doesn't feel right. I don't think we should get any closer.
  • Onion Knight: Terra, even if it isn't a crystal, we might find some clues. It's alright. I can handle any enemy that comes our way.
  • Terra: But...
  • Onion Knight: Chaos's puppets may be strong, but they're just big lunkheads. And I've got something they don't...Right here, if you know what I mean.
  • Onion Knight: Come on, let's keep going.

  • Cecil: What does that mean?
  • Firion: Cecil, where are you? What are you doing?
  • Golbez: If you want to know the secret of the crystal, follow my shadow.
  • (Golbez leaves as Firion arrives)
  • Firion: Are you alright? That was...Golbez, wasn't it? Isn't he sided with Chaos?
  • Cecil: He's also...my brother.
  • Firion: Be that as it may...he's with the enemy. What did he say to you?
  • Cecil: He said he knows the secret of the crystal--that I should follow him if I want it.
  • Firion: Cecil, this is hard for me to say...but lower your guard and the darkness may lead you to a trap.
  • Cecil: That can't be.
  • Tidus: Come on guys. What's going on over there?
  • Firion:Let's go. Tidus is getting impatient. It's better to forget what he told you. I don't want to see my friend walk into danger.
  • (Firion runs off to join the others)
  • Cecil: What should I do?

  • Zidane: What could that be?
  • Bartz: It looks like--A crystal!
  • (Bartz runs towards it.)
  • Zidane: Wha-? Hey, wait!
  • (Bartz vanishes)
  • Zidane: Huh..Bartz? Here did he go? Heey!
  • (Kefka appears)
  • Kefka: How perfectly poetic! The mouse scampers off, but the monkey just keeps hanging around! Well whatever. This should be interesting, at least.
  • Zidane: Hey! Is this your doing? What did you do with Bartz?
  • Kefka: What's wrong with you, you noy baboon? Too stupid to even get caught in a trap?
  • Zidane: Tell me where Bartz is or I'll force it out of you!
  • (Fight)
  • Zidane: Just give it up already. I wanna know where Bartz is!
  • Kefka: I'm afraid the mouse is...SMACK...dab in the middle of enemy territory. Go look for him if you want, but you'll just be wasting your time!
  • (He teleports)
  • Zidane: Bartz...I'm coming to find you!

(Comes to)

  • Bartz: Where am I?
  • (Run off hiding when he hears voices coming his way.)
  • Kefka: So now...where is that mouse you caught?
  • Kuja: Hmmm? Well now, this odd. He was here just a minute ago...Anyway, the one I'm after is Zidane.

I did even ask you to do this. Now you've made it harder to catch him.

  • Kefka: But it looked fun! No fair hogging it all!
  • Kuja: Though I suppose it would be foolish to let this mouse do to waste.
  • Bartz: (Huh, so that trap was suppose to be for Zidane. Good thing they didn't catch him, but who are they to call me a mouse!? I wonder hat those guys are talking about over there.)
  • Kuja: A brilliant plan! And I know the perfect one to carry it out.
  • Bartz: Might as well take a look around. With any luck, I just might find my crystal! Everyone's skills are gonna come in handy!

  • Warrior of Light: Firion! You've fought well. Leave the rest to me.
  • Firion: I cannot
  • Warrior of Light: You must go and look after our comrades to keep their paths to crystals open.
  • (Firion takes his leave)
  • Sephiroth: A fresh one. You won't get your crystal fighting against me.
  • Warrior of Light: I thought not.
  • Sephiroth: Then why do you stand in my way?
  • Warrior of Light: You have injured one of my comrades.
  • Sephiroth: And you want, I take it. So, on a whim, you would risk your life--
  • Warrior of Light: Let us begin, and see this put to rest.
  • Sephiroth: This might be entertaining.
  • (fight)
  • Sephiroth: Not bad at all.. But I now realized that is only one who could defeat me.
  • Warrior of Light: What in the world are you--
  • Sephiroth: I have one question for you. For what reason do you take up that blade.
  • Warrior of Light: To obtain the crystal, and put an end to the conflict.
  • Sephiroth: So you fight to end the fighting...You have a long road ahead. Do you really expect to end the conflict after your battles?
  • Warrior of Light: However long the road, each battle brings me closer.
  • Sephiroth(showing off Firion's rose): I think not. You don't wish an end to the fighting. You find pleasure in it, just as I do
  • Warrior of Light: (The wild rose...That must be what Firion came for.)
  • Sephiroth: You and I are the same--entities befitting this closed world.
  • Warrior of Light: Closed world?
  • Sephiroth: The time has come. I must face him and fulfill my obligation.
  • (Leaves)
  • Warrior of Light: He got away...(What does the enemy know about this world? ...No use worrying. For now, I must continue my quest for the crystal.)

  • Onion Knight: Terra, you feel something?
  • Terra: It's still up ahead...What out!
  • (Exdeath appears)
  • Exdeath: Pawns of Cosmos, I presume.
  • Onion Knight: (Whoa..What is with this guy? I've never felt such an intimidating aura...)
  • Exdeath: I come out here to kill the time, and what did I find but a woman and child.
  • Onion Knight: (No way I can look after Terra while fighting him. I've got an idea...) C-could you possibly let us go, sir?
  • Exdeath: What?
  • Onion Knight: Our strength is no match to yours. We're hardly worth you time. I think you'd be much better off finding a stronger opponent to fight. Unless you're the cowardly type who picked on those weaker than yourself...
  • Exdeath: I suppose there is no point in sending harmless insect to the void. Very well. I will let you do. But keep this in mind, little worm. The crystals shun the unworthy hands of those without valor.
  • (Exdeath leaves)
  • Onion Knight: Well, that was easy! Of course, even if he came for us, I would have run! I don't fight against anyone unless I know I can win.
  • Terra: But...wasn't it a bit strange?
  • Onion Knight: What do you meany by that?
  • Terra: It seemed like he let us go on purpose. He sorta of even gave you advice when you wouldn't fight him...
  • Onion Knight: You mean the "those with valor" line? Fighting against someone you can't beat isn't a sign of valor. It's simply being reckless!
  • Terra: I'm sorry. I just--
  • Onion Knight: Then I'll prove it you by getting the crystal! That'll show you I'm not "without valor." Let's go. Do you still feel the presence?
  • Terra: It's up ahead.
  • Onion Knight: Right!

  • Tidus: Whata doin' out here?
  • Cecil: I was just thinking of what my brother said.
  • Tidus: You mean that thing about "the secret of the crystal"?
  • Cecil: The same. I wish i knew what he was trying to tell me...
  • Tidus: Then why don't you just ask him?
  • Cecil: What?
  • Tidus: That's what you really want to do, isn't it?
  • Cecil: Yes. When I think about risks my brother must have taken to come see me, I--
  • Tidus: Save it, Cecil! You want to see him. That's all that counts!
  • Cecil: But Firion was concerned that--
  • Tidus: Who cares what Firion says? All that matters is that you come back in one piece! Let me worry about Firion, okay? Just hurry up and go already!
  • Cecil: Truly? Are you sure?
  • Tidus: Try listening to your friends more often!
  • Cecil: Thank you. I'll not be long. You've my word on it.
  • (Runs off)
  • Tidus: Family..So...how will I explain this one?

  • Warrior of Light: Don't think I don't notice your presence? Why not just show yourself?
  • Ultimecia: Impressive
  • Warrior of Light: Ultimecia
  • Ultimecia: Where are you headed? Might you still be search of you precious crystal?
  • Warrior of Light: The crystals are indeed our goal.. I do not intend to stop until I find mine.
  • Ultimecia: Why don't you just give up? The crystals are nothing more than the fabrication of a fallen goddess. To so willing risk your life over such things is beyond ridiculous.
  • Warrior of Light: Are you finished talking?
  • Ultimecia: What?
  • Warrior of Light: If you have no business with me, you should leave now. The world's time runs short There is not a moment to waste with the like of you.
  • Ultimecia: You are bold for one so young... Then have it your way. It is time for you

to face the harshness reality!

  • (Fight)
  • Ultimecia: Do you think...your victory means the end? Nothing you do will ever matter. Your strength is not enough to save the world, no matter how hard you try.
  • Warrior of Light:Your deceptions fails you. I have comrades who are in search of their own crystals.
  • Ultimecia: I think you're rather unaware...
  • Warrior of Light: What?
  • Ultimecia: Those comrades that you speak of are suffering. Some do not yet know why they fight, while others stand alone, having lost faith in their comrades. When this conflict comes to an end...all you will gain is utter despair. You will not find hope. You will not find a future!
  • Warrior of Light:(It is true, I have not yet found a way to the crystal, nor do I know what the future holds...) But the future...is yet to come.

  • Cecil: Worthy?
  • Golbez: Indeed that is why--
  • Exdeath: Two lost souls, wandering the dark, Or is this what they meave by brotherly love? I did not

expecy you to be bound yet to the other side, Golbez. You are a fool and a coward, longing for the light!

  • Golbez: It's none of your concern.
  • Exdeath: On the contrary, feeble mortal. For it I who shall punish those who betray us!
  • Cecil: I won't let you lay a finger on him!
  • Golbez: Cecil?
  • Cecil: I don't know if you'll deem me worthy. But..at least I can show you my strength!
  • Exdeath: So you would willingly defend a traitor? What fools you are, the both of you. You and your ignorance shall return to the Void.
  • (Fight)
  • Cecil: My brother..is not the same as you!
  • Exdeath: There is no difference. Light and dark have the same root. As do harmony and disorder...
  • (He disappears)

  • Squall: (Wow...Such a dazzling fellow...)
  • Warrior of Light: Are you by yourself?
  • Squall: (Why does everybody ask me that?) To obtain the crystal, each one of us must confront his real enemy. Cosmos told me that.
  • Warrior of Light: Cosmos did?
  • Squall: Isn't that why you're by yourself, too? I just want to get the crystal and get out.
  • Warrior of Light: The enemy is not one but many. They have joined forces to defeat us. Should you not look for someone to guard your back?
  • Squall: (Don't force your thought on me. Just stay out of my way.) I have only one goal. I won't allow for distractions.(I need that revolve to persevere)
  • Warrior of Light: Why do you insist on fighting alone? Can you carve out your path--without the help of others?
  • (Fight)
  • Warrior of Light: You are strong. Don't you have any intention of using that strength to protect the others?
  • Squall: Fighting together's not the only way. We can still help each other, even if we're apart. And whether or not I needed, I received their support. So I'll return the favor in my own way. I have to carve out my own path to change the situation.
  • Warrior of Light: I'm afraid I have misjudged you. I had assumed you preferred to be alone because you did not trust your comrades. You should continue down this road you have chosen. Eventually, all paths join as one. Do not forget. None of us are alone.
  • Squall: (None of us are alone, huh...)

  • Bartz: As much as I like wandering around aimlessly, I gotta go somewhere. (Ooh. I wonder what's going on over there.)
  • (Sees Emperor Mateus as he and Ultimecia attempt to recruit Sephiroth into their alliance)
  • Emperor Mateus: No doubt paradise is within our grasp. What matter is afterwards. What say you join forces with me, Sephiroth? You, too, must be sickened by the feckless destroyers among us.
  • Sephiroth: Not interested.
  • Ultimecia: I don't think you quite understand the position you are in.
  • Sephiroth: And if I don't?
  • Bartz: (Seriously? Are they fighting over a girl!?)
  • Emperor Mateus: It seems we have an infestation.
  • Bartz: Hey! Who do you think you're calling a bug!?

(Sephiroth leaves as the other two villains advance.)

  • Bartz: I'll be back
  • (Bartz runs off)
  • Ultimecia: Going after him?
  • Emperor Mateus: No. A far more intriguing "light" approaches. This is perfect. I'll tell one of the destroyers where the insect went in exchange for the crystal.
  • Ultimecia: Exdeath would be the most suitable choice.

  • Emperor Mateus: That was quite the performance. But I believe you owe us now. It's thanks to your antics that we lost that Bartz character.
  • Warrior of Light: (Bartz? What was he doing here? But wait...) It is very much like him to escape in the midst of this mayhem.
  • Emperor Mateus: He is a lucky one, indeed But surely you must be aware by now.. Victory is unobtainable for you in this battle. But your prowess with the light should not go to waste. What would you say to using your powers for me? Your loyality will not go unrewarded.
  • (crystal)
  • Emperor Mateus: Your search is over. This crystal shall be yours to keep.
  • Warrior of Light': I see. So that was your plan.
  • (Destroys the crystal)
  • Emperor Mateus:Oh..So you would take your only hope and crush it? The crystals--were they not what you were after?
  • Warrior of Light': I have vowed to put an end to this conflict with my bare hands. It is for that reason that I must find the crystal by myself. It is not charity I should receive from the enemy. That was nothing but an imitation.
  • Emperor Mateus: And I suppose your determination is true.
  • (Fight)
  • Emperor Mateus: Your resolve to end the conflict is impressive. But will you still be as determined after you know the truth?
  • (Fades away)

  • Terra: It's here. Something powerful is close by.
  • Onion Knight: I don't see anything unusual. Let me go take a look around and--Terra?
  • Terra(She suddenly reeves in pain): What is..this voice...in my head!? No! What is this...Aaagh!
  • Onion Knight: Terra? What's going on!?
  • (Terra than proceeds to attack the Onion Knight)
  • Onion Knight: Terra, what are doing? Don't you recognize me!? Looks like I have to fight.
  • (Fight)
  • Onion Knight: Terra! Terra! It's me! Are you alright?

(Terra vanishes)

  • Onion Knight:Terra!?

  • Zidane: Come on, Bartz. Where are you?
  • (He hears Squall's voice and investigates)
  • Ultimecia: Interesting. Then fight you shall.
  • Garland: Yes, against the two of us.
  • Ultimecia: Will you still feign bravery?
  • Squall: This is better for me. If I can defeat both of you, then it will make it easier for them.
  • (Zidane gets a birdeye view of the sene)
  • Zidane: Squall? That idiot!
  • Squall: I'll prove it to you. We may be apart, but we still fight together!
  • (Zidane attacks Garland while his guard's down)
  • Zidane: Trying to take the spotlight, eh, Squall?
  • Squall: Zidane! Why are you here?
  • Zidane: What? Do I need a reason to help someone? Why don't you just leave this big lummox to me!
  • Garland: So you challenge me without hesitation. You are quite the cocky one.
  • Zidane: Didn't exactly want to fight against a lady. And I suggest you worry about yourself!
  • Squall: (He just doesn't get it...) But I can live with that. Thanks for waiting. So--
  • Ultimecia: Shall we dance?
  • (After Zidane's fight...)
  • Garland: That was just what I needed---to work out some of the kinks!
  • (He fades)
  • Zidane: What's that guy MADE of? Squall!
  • (Runs to Squall after he defeated Ultimecia.)
  • Squall: Zidane, I owe you one.
  • Zidane: Aww, it's okay...Wait a minute! Nothing's okay! We got trouble! Big trouble!
  • Squall: (I can't imagine bigger trouble than you...)
  • Zidane: Bartz! Bartz got caught! It was a trap! We gotta go find him! Now!
  • Squall: Bartz? Alright. Let's go.
  • Zidane: Huh? Really?
  • Squall (showing Bartz's charm): Gotta give this back to him.
  • Zidane: Is that why?
  • Squall: And because he's my friend.
  • Zidane: Yeah.
  • (The charm reacts to Squall's crystal, causing to shoot a beam of light)
  • Zidane: That light...You think it's pointing towards Bartz?
  • Squall Hang in there.

  • (After Cosmos leaves the Onion Knight, Golbez appears)
  • 'Golbez: Such a pity.
  • Onion Knight: Chaos's minion...

'Golbez: Terra was her name, was it not? unless the curse is lifted, she will live only to fight for the Cloud of Darkness. When at last her strength fails her, she will fall to some faceless foe. You cannot defeat the Cloud of Darkness. You'd show wisdom in choosing to avoid her. Why do you hesitate? You do not trust what your mind know to be true?

  • Onion Knight:I...
  • 'Golbez: If not to reason, then listen to your heart.

  • (After letting Bartz run off with the crystal)
  • Kuja: My! You're the consummate actor.
  • Exdeath: Shallowed cleverness
  • Kuja: You're the second one to tell me that. At the very least, be thankful. With this, we should both be on the way to getting what we want.

  • Squall: Never though Bartz would fall for a trap.
  • Zidane: It's my fault. We got too caught up in our race.
  • Squall: Stay sharp. You seem to be one of their targets.
  • Zidane: Yeah, maybe, But I'm not losing sight of MY target. I'm rescuing Bartz right away. He's gotta be be at the end of this light...

  • Bartz: Are you with Chaos, too? You're not taking this crystal from me.
  • Golbez: You've no hope as it is. One does not find the crystal smply by looking for it.
  • Bartz: Give me a break. You guys were the ones holding on to it!
  • Golbez: The purity of a heart that only sees things as they are on the surface can also turn poisonous!
  • (Golbez Attacks)
  • Bartz: What? Hold on!
  • (fight)
  • Golbez: Do not look outward for the light.
  • Bartz: Who are you, anyway?
  • Golbez: A light approaches.
  • Bartz: I'm outta here!
  • (He runs off as Golbez is distracted)
  • Golbez: The time is near. In the end, one must find for oneself the power that dwells within.

  • Zidane: Bartz! Where've you been?
  • Bartz: Zidane! Squall, you came too!
  • Squall: You look alright.
  • Bartz: Yeah, I managed to get away from a lot of mean-looking guys. But never mind that. Look at this!
  • (Takes out a crystal)
  • Bartz: I nicked this crystal from them. Looks like I win!
  • Zidane: I don't believe it, And here I was, actually worried about you!
  • Squall: Wait! Don't touch--
  • (Zidane vanishes)
  • Bartz: Zidane!?

(Golbez arrives)

  • Exdeath: Did you really think obtaining the crystal would be that easy? That was nothing but an imitation that I created from the Void.
  • Bartz: What?
  • Exdeath: You've played straight in Kuja's hands. Your apelike companion has been sent to Kuja--and soon to the Void.
  • Bartz: So you only used me!?
  • Squall: You think cheap tricks can defeat Zidane?
  • Exdeath: Enough babbling! You will be seeing him soon! Manikins, come forth and take them!
  • (He summons his minions to attack them)
  • Squall: You ready? Bartz!
  • Bartz: Yeah.
  • Squall: We'd better regroup later.
  • Bartz: Sure.
  • (They run off)
  • Exdeath: It's no use running.

  • Firion: I finally realized something...I've found something precious to me.
  • Zidane: Is it a princess?
  • Firion: The wild rose... I guess that's...that's my one and only answer.
  • Zidane: That's what you call your princess?

  • Squall: What's wrong?
  • Bartz: It's all my fault. Zidane came to rescue me, and I got him trapped.
  • Squall: Looks like you need this more than I do.
  • Bartz: The feather...
  • Squall: Whenever I found myself in danger, this good-luck charm saved me.
  • Squall: Zidane risked his life trying to find you. So, what are you going to do?
  • Exdeath: I'll find you where you go!
  • Bartz: Hold on. I'll take care of this.
  • Squall: Bartz...
  • Bartz: I have to settle this myself. I have to fight him on my own!
  • Squall: When you're done, we're going to find Zidane.
  • Bartz: Yeah. With a big smile on my face!
  • Exdeath: You have nowhere to run.
  • Bartz: It's okay. I was getting tied of running!

  • Squall: You did it.
  • Bartz: It was easy! And I owe it all to this. Thanks so much, Squall.
  • (Feather morphs into a crystal)
  • Bartz: What? You mean it were here all along? Talk about getting the runaround!
  • Squall: It suits your style.
  • Bartz: Het over there!
  • Zidane: Heeey!
  • Bartz: I goota go show this to Zidane. And this time, it's for real!
  • Squall: You never learn..
  • Bartz: Come on. Let's get going!

  • (Golbez passes Sephiroth)
  • Sephiroth: Do you miss the light?
  • Golbez: I merely have duties to fulfill.
  • Sephiroth: Get too close to the brightness, and you may get scorched.
  • (The two parts ways)

  • Zidane: So--what happens when we all get our crystals?
  • Squall: All Cosmos said was they would give us hope.
  • Bartz notices Cosmos' image on his crystal, turning around to see no one other than his companions.
  • Zidane: What's up?
  • Bartz: Nothing. Was that a phantom?

  • Tidus: What are you doing?
  • Firion:It's the wild rose...(Oh yeah. That's right...The enemy stole it from me that time...)
  • Tidus: So tell me about the wild rose!
  • Firion: Break time's over. We should get going soon.
  • Tidus: Heh. All right, then. Once I deal with my old man and find my crystal, I'll make you tell me.
  • Firion: You're so nosy, Tidus.
  • Tidus: Firion, what's your goal in life?
  • Firion: What do you mean?
  • Tidus: You know, to become the world's best swordsman! Or, there's a guy you just have to beat! Like Cloud and Cecil, a goal to strive for as you go down your own path. You gotta have one to make it through what we're facing.
  • Firion: Right now, all I can think of is to end the conflict, no matter what it takes.
  • Tidus: Ahhh, you're so uptight!
  • Firion: Something wrong with that?
  • Tidus: In times like these, you just gotta let yourself go!

  • Tidus: Okay! All clear over there! Huh? Firion! Yoohoo! Rosebud! Where are you? Is he lost?
  • Jecht: Well, well, well, If it isn't Jecht's little boy.
  • Tidus: Dad!
  • Jecht: What's wrong? I'm standing right here. Come and get me.Or are you so scared that you can't even move?
  • Tidus: I'm not scared!
  • Emperor Mateus: Silence
  • (The Emperor appears)
  • Jecht: What is it now, Your Majesty?
  • Emperor Mateus: Your son stands before you driven by a fierce hatred. This does not aid us in our endeavors.
  • Jecht: What a hassle.
  • Tidus: What are you guys babbling about?
  • Jecht: He says we can't fight today. Let's save it for later.
  • (Walks off)
  • Tidus: Wait a minute! Don't bail out on me!
  • Emperor Mateus: Do you hate your father?
  • Tidus: Outta the way!
  • Emperor Mateus: I suggest you direct that aggression towards me.
  • (Fight)
  • Emperor Mateus: Hatred alone will never yield the crystal. Your prayers shall be heard by no one.
  • (zaps Tidus before falling back)
  • Tidus: What does that mean!? Try making some sense! (When it came down to it, my problem wasn't that he got away. The thing that really made me mad was--) It just isn't like you...taking orders like that!

  • Firion: Tidus! Where are you?
  • Jecht: Don't know where he is, but he's fine!
  • Firion: Hold on. You're Tidus' father, aren't you? What did you do to him?
  • Jecht: Didn't do a damned thing. I've been told told there's no point in me fighting him yet.
  • Firion: Tidus has been looking forward to settling thing with you. Don't tell me you ran away from the fight?
  • Jecht: That wasn't funny, kid. Everyone's getting in my way, and it's kinda ticking me off. Think I'll take it out on you!
  • (Fight)
  • Jecht: You're not half bad! Come on. We're not done yet!
  • Firion: I won't fight against you.
  • Jecht: What? What's the matter?
  • Firion: I realized something as I fought you. The one you really want to fight isn't me. It's Tidus! Why use me as a substitute when you know he's determined to face you?
  • Jecht: Here's another kid who thinks he knows it all. But you sure know hot to hit a guy where it hurts.
  • Firion: Where are you going?
  • Jecht: I finnally see where I'm supposed to go, thanks to all your meddling. You know, when you're having a bad day, you just gotta let yourself go!
  • (Jecht walks off)
  • Tidus: Firion! Are you okay?
  • (Tidus runs it.)
  • Firion: I get it now. Like father, like son. What a resemblance.

  • Tidus: Sorry for being so selfish, but I gotta do this...
  • Firion: Don't worry about it. It's the story you have to tell.
  • Tidus: I'm gonna settle things with my old man.
  • Firion: Yeah. Now off you go!
  • (Tidus runs off)
  • Firion: So we go our separate ways.

  • Emperor Mateus: Such a grand statement from a mere cog in the war machine. He's going to end the conflict, so he says.
  • (Ultimecia appears)
  • Ultimecia Then we should teach him a lesson...on the futility of wishing for an end.
  • (Fight)
  • Ultimecia Did I not say it was futile?
  • Firion: What?
  • Ultimecia You are in the midst of a battle that has been fought between the gods for ages. What do you possibly thing you could do?
  • Emperor Mateus: How pathetic. I'm afriad your dream of gaining the crystal will never become reality. Even the efforts of your friend will all be for naught.
  • Firion: I will not let their struggles be wasted. I will obtain the crystal, and bring an end to this--
  • Emperor Mateus: Is that truly your will?
  • Firion: What do you mean?
  • Emperor Mateus: That is why you are weak. You only fight because you are told to. You are nothing but Cosmos's tool
  • (Emperor Mateus and Ultimecia leave)
  • Firion: Am I...just Cosmos's tool?

  • (After driving off the Cloud of Darkness)
  • Onion Knight: Terra! Terra!! She merely fainted.
  • Golbez: The girl drew too deeply upon her powers.
  • Onion Knight: You again...You're not getting near Terra!
  • Golbez: I admire your resolve. You should protect her.
  • Onion Knight: What?
  • Golbez: For all the awesome power she wields, the girls fears what she is. You must be her shield, her pillar of support.
  • Onion Knight: I don't need you to tell me that!
  • Golbez: I suppose not. You know the path that lies before you. And the crystal lights the wat to that which you seek.

(Onion Knight's crystal appears)

  • Onion Knight: This is the crystal...
  • (The Crystal fades and Golbez is gone. Terra comes too.)
  • Terra: Where are we...?
  • Onion Knight: Terra...Everything is alright. I'll be tright here, so you can rest. Because I'll protect you. But...maybe for a minite, I'll--
  • (He collapses after Terra goes back to sleep.)

  • Onion Knight: Something bothering you?
  • Terra: The winds have stopped. I can't feel the enemines' moves--or the presence of our friends. This has never happened before...But don't worry about me! I feel fine, so--
  • Onion Knight: I'll protect you.
  • Terra: What?
  • Onion Knight: I'll always protect you Terra. That's a promise.
  • Onion Knight: Is something funny?
  • Terra: I've just--always though of you as something of a rascal. Since when you become so knightly?
  • Onion Knight: So..you don't remember anything.
  • Terra: Huh?
  • Onion Knight: Nothing. Never mind. Come on, we should get going.

  • Onion Knight: Terra, are you coming?
  • Terra: Oh, yes.
  • (As Terra and Onion Knight take their leave, the Cloud of Darkness attempts to blast them to bits when Kefka stops her.)
  • Cloud of Darkness: Why not break her now. So fragile...it would be simple.
  • Kefka: I wanna have some fun! After all she's a--Good ol' friend of mine!
  • (His laughter echoes as the heroes here it.)

  • Terra: I wanted to thank you.
  • Onion Knight: Huh?.
  • Terra: For cheering me back up there. To be honest, I was getting scared. It seems like I've been going nowhere while everyone else is making strides. It frutstrates me that I still don't know where to go. I wonder if things will change once I find the crystal.
  • Onion Knight: Not exactly. I got mine because things changed. Someone once told me--"The crystal lights the way to what you seek." So all you have to do is follow the strongest feeling inside you.
  • Terra: The strongest feeling...I don't think I feel anything.
  • Onion Knight: Terra--
  • Terra: But I have to keep at it...and work hard, just like you did. As long as I never give up hope and keep going forward, someday--
  • Onion Knight: You're going to find it. I have a knack for knowing these things.
  • Terra: I'm counting on you.

  • Kefka: What a smashing display! A good demolition is so moving--but of course, you know that, dear friend.
  • Terra: Kefka! What are you scheming?
  • Kefka: I wanted to see how strong you were. You know, serving Chaos suited you so much better. Don't you think?
  • Terra: What do you mean?
  • Kefka: Oh, my! You really don't remember? Then allow me to refresh your memory. You used your powers to hurt your precious--
  • Onion Knight: Stop it!
  • Kefka: What's this? Oh, you're the one she thrashed, aren't you? Aww, friends forever, huh? Please, stop. Makes me want to puke my guts out!
  • Terra: What...What are you saying? You don't mean--
  • Kefka: Bingo! That's exactly what I mean! You beat your precious companion, that little kid, to a bloody pulp! It looked you were enjoying it. How could you forget? You are such a dangerous creature. The more you fight, the more your powers grow out of control! Destruction incarnate! That's what you are, my dear!
  • Terra: You're lying!
  • Kefka: "You're lying." Oh, no. Looks, here's another enemy for you!
  • (Explosion occur)
  • Kefka: Aw, come on! I wanna see some more of that cataclysmic power! Let's destroy it all, you an me! Friends, enemies, everybody and everything!
  • Terra: I-
  • (Onion Knight runs at Kefka)
  • Kefka: Huh!? What the--
  • Onion Knight: I'll take you on! Terra, run!
  • Terra: But--
  • Kefka: What do you think you're doing you little worm?
  • (The two dissappear in another series of explosions, wit Terra left all along)
  • Terra: What happened? Where did you go? I have to find him. But I...

  • Kefka: Hm? You done? Good. Well, in that case...
  • Cloud of Darkness: Let us destroy everything!
  • Terra: Cloud!
  • Cloud of Darkness: Now...what will you do? Will you both surrender to our powers? Or will you--
  • (Onion Knight arrives)
  • Onion Knight: We'll ride it out, all three of us!
  • Terra: You're alright!
  • Onion Knight: I told you i'd protect you. Now you can leave this nasty one to the two of us!
  • Terra: Alright And I must--
  • (After defeating their enemies)
  • Onion Knight: Terra! You okay?
  • Terra:You two! I'm so glad.
  • (Terra gets her Crystal)
  • Terra: Could this be...my...power?
  • Cloud: What did I tell you?
  • Onion Knight: I knew you'd find it.
  • Terra: Thank you.
  • Cloud: But there's no time to rest. Remember--the others are still on their journey.
  • Terra: Yes. The real fight is yet to come. We'll join them. Let's go!

  • Emperor Mateus:: What does an aimless tool of war want with me?
  • Firion: I am not just a tool. I fight in order to make my dream come true!
  • Emperor Mateus: Wild roses? You shouldn't risk your life over such a worthless dream. You don't even have the strength to take hold of it.
  • (Emperor Mateus attacks)
  • Emperor Mateus: What's the matter? Are you done dreaming?
  • Cloud: We won't let it end!
  • (Cloud and Tidus arrive)
  • Firion: You guys!?
  • Cloud: You've gone far enough on your own.
  • Tidus: A friend's dream is our dream... We'll defend it together.
  • Emperor Mateus: The time has come...
  • (Departs)
  • Emperor Mateus(Voice): Firion! Come to where I am! Come and show me your will!
  • Cloud: Cecil and Terra should be joining us soon, but--
  • Tidus: You're going alone, aren't you?
  • Firion: I must settle this.
  • (Cloud gives Firion back the Wild Rose)
  • Firion: How did you--
  • Cloud: Show us the rest of your dream.
  • Tidus: That's right! We'll all be waiting for you.
  • Firion: I'll be back.

  • Kuja: You think I'm outsmarting myself? I tire of your chirps, ignorant fool!
  • (About to fight Garland when..)
  • Jecht: You guys having fun? Let me in on it.
  • (The 3-way fight is about to start when...)
  • Kuja: I've lost interest.
  • (Kuja leaves)
  • Garland: Surely you have others to spar with.
  • (He walks off with Jecht smirking.)

  • Tidus: And then I bumped into you shortly afterwards. And that, my friends, is my story--
  • Squall: You coming with us?
  • Cloud: Guess what? The story continues.

  • (The others arrive after Warrior of Light defeats Garland)
  • Zidane: Looks like you finally got it.
  • Warrior of Light: Is everyone all right?
  • Onion Knight: Of course! It was a piece of cake.
  • Firion: So now we all have our crsytal. We should get going!
  • Warrior of Light: Yes. Let us hurry. Cosmos is waiting.
  • Cid of the Lufaine: They are the last hope left to the world. Having overcome the limits of fate, the ten warriors finally reunite, crystals in hand and hope in their hearts. With Cosmos' wish realized, the battle is about to enter a new phase--

  • Cid of the Lufaine: Thus, with the crystals in hand, the warrior assembled around Cosmos, to defeat Chaos and save the world...
  • (Everyone arrives to Cosmos)
  • Warrior of Light: Let's end this fight, here and now.
  • Cosmos: No...It has already been settled. You fate is to fall...into true darkness
  • (Everyone's teleport to the Brink of Maddness)
  • Tidus: Cosmos!
  • (Overtowering he is Chaos)
  • Cosmos: Chaos.
  • (Tidus runs to her, but is knocked to the ground by Chaos.)
  • Chaos: For all your wandering, still you end up in purgatory. What a shame, Cosmos.
  • Cosmos: This is not you to decide. What they must know is true darkness
  • Chaos: You wish shall be granted... I will extinguish all light!
  • Squall: Cosmos!
  • (Cosmos is incinerated as Chaos takes his leave as the heroes are being consumed in darkness.)
  • Chaos: The world is unchanging. Powerless beings...Fall into shadows of depair...and begone.

Shade Impulse[edit]

  • Cid of the Lufaine: Each of the ten warriors, the world's last hope, have followed their path to obtain the crystals--But the goddess of harmony, Cosmos perished as they watched, leaving the world in the hand of Chaos, god of discord. And as last spoken by the deity who summoned them--The warriors were now about to experience true darkness.

  • (Everyone is shocked at Cosmos's death before they start fading away.)
  • Tidus: What..What the...!?
  • (Tidus fades)
  • Bartz and Zidane: Tidus!
  • (Laughter is heard as Exdeath and Kefka appear)
  • Exdeath: The conflict of the gods has ended. Now you pawns must fade to darkness.
  • Kefka: You're getting what you deserve. After all, Cosmos died--Because of what you did!
  • Zidane: What did you say?!
  • (Zidane disappears, followed by Squall, Cloud, Terra, Bartz, Cecil, the Onion Knight, and then Firion, leaving only the Warrior of Light remaining)
  • Kefka: It's better that you disappear than to know the brutal truth. Trust me
  • Exdeath: Fear not. I will wait until you are gone---before I return the world to the Void
  • (The screen goes black as Exdeath and Kefka laugh and the Warrior of Light fades with the others.)
  • Warrior of Light(offscreen): There is not even a speck of light--I am in absolute darkness.
  • Tidus(offscreen): Did I really disappear? If all of us are gone then that world--
  • Squall(offscreen): Is this it? Is this the way it all ends?
  • Onion Knight(offscreen): No...I don't want it to end. I learned through all the battles that we can't just give up! Even in the deepest despair!
  • (the Crystals react and bring everyone back to Cosmos' throne)
  • Terra: Could this be...Cosmos's doing?
  • (Recap)
  • Cecil: But they said we were the ones who killed Cosmos...
  • Firion: I think...we should find out the truth.
  • Bartz: Why Cosmos had to disappear...If WE have to disappear as well...We've got to get some answers!
  • Cloud: We're not gonna let them have their way.

  • Ultimecia: It seems the conflict is nearing its end. Shinryu is stirring.
  • Cloud of Darkness: …Shinryu?
  • Ultimecia: Yes. That which purifies the world. The wyrm will cull the wheat from the chaff and wipe the world clean. A checkmate. And then the board is cleared for another match.
  • Cloud of Darkness: So that is how these battles have repeated time and again…
  • Ultimecia: Yes. I had an eternity to master my gambit. But I feel something… unusual this before. The world trembles like before… Could the Emperor have been able to achieve an absolute death for-
  • Cloud of Darkness: We have no interest in that man’s petty machinations. All that matters is to engulf all in our shadow. A return to the Void.
  • Ultimecia: …Why?
  • Cloud of Darkness: The Void fascinates us. Unlike the world and its tiresome conspiracies, it is eternal.

[Terra confronts Kefka in his tower; Kefka laughs]

  • Kefka: You're still alive? You pathetic dregs can't even die properly.
  • Terra: Kefka...
  • Kefka: Oh, I know. You came here to be destroyed by me, right? Of course! After what you did to Cosmos, who wouldn't want to follow?
  • Terra: Tell me. What is it that you know?
  • Kefka: You want to hear? Do you? Well, in that case, I'm not telling!
  • Terra: (angrily) Stop fooling around!
  • Kefka: Sorry ma'am. Come on. What does it matter anymore? [laughs] Destruction is the fate of all things. Listen... do you hear it? Those are fate's footsteps! [shoots dark magic projectiles at Terra] Beyond the chaos, the end draws near.
  • (Fight)
  • Kefka: It's not enough...Destroy more...Have got to destroy more!
  • Terra: Just stop! None of this makes any sense!
  • Kefka: Destruction isn't supposed to make sense! It's only fun when it's senseless! Why create when it will be only destroyed? Why cling to life, knowing that you have to die? None of it will have meant anything once you do!
  • Terra: We live to protect what we hold dear. As long as you have that, you can find the meaning on your own.
  • Kefka: Meaning schmeaning! The whole world's going bye-bye! You included! Life...Dreams...Hope..Where do they come from? And where do they go? None of that junk is enough to fulfill your hearts? Destruction...Destruction is what make life worth living! Destroy! Destroy! Destroy! Let's destroy everything!
  • (Kefka explodes)
  • Terra: It was your broken heart--You were tying to fill it with destruction...(This misery must not be repeated--ever) I must keep moving forward.

  • Emperor Mateus: The long conflict between the gods is finally over.
  • Jecht: It's gonna start over again, right? We get "purified" or whatever, then go play with kids some more...
  • Emperor Mateus: Yes, That would usually be the case. But this time, we saw that Cosmos's death would not be transient, but absolute. Her warriors will also completely vanish...as will we, eventually.
  • Jecht: What're you talking about?
  • Emperor Mateus: We return to being the mere vessels that we were. This is how this battle will see its true end.
  • Jecht: Wait a minute, that doesn't sound right? You've been trying to off us all from the beginning? Is that why you called us all here--as pawns of Chaos to do your dirty work?
  • Emperor Mateus: You are wrong on one point, Jecht. You are not Chaos' pawn.
  • Jecht: ...What?
  • Emperor Mateus: You most likely don't remember...but you were once a pawn of Cosmos. Harmony and disorder are always arbitrary. You just happen to be on our side now. You are a traitor, a body of the dark with a heart of light. So I set out to use you.
  • Jecht: Use me?
  • Emperor Mateus:To make crystals---specials ones suited for bodies of the dark. Light was born when you faced your son. Then I took the light when you fought him. Tremble in fear..Now I have powers the likes of which gods can only dream!
  • Jecht: I get it And I finally get what kind of guy you really are.
  • Emperor Mateus: Where do you think you're going?
  • Jecht: Off to fight--A REAL fight. With someone who's got the heart for it!
  • Emperor Mateus: Hmph. Bark while you can. Your time is short. Only I have the power to survive the world's demise. I shall reign in the end!

  • Jecht: Hey.
  • Tidus: What are you doing here!?
  • Jecht: What? Can't even greet you old man? To be honest, I don't really know, either. Well, maybe we've got some unfinished business.
  • Tidus: What are you talking about?
  • Jecht: Have you learned anything? A real ace fights until the very end. And we just hit over time.
  • Tidus: Well, then--
  • Jecht: Where did we leave off?
  • (Fight)
  • Jecht: So? Are you ready to move on?
  • Tidus: What?
  • Jecht: I think you had so much on you mind that you couldn't even take your next step.
  • Tidus: That's not...
  • Jecht: You're pathetic. Can't even get one thing right without me, can you?
  • Tidus: I just--
  • Jecht: Well, if don't understand it, try just accepting it.
  • Tidus: Huh?
  • Jecht: Accept that you are weak. Accept the path you've taken. Accept that nothing makes sense in this whole damn world! Once you accept everything, then you can choose your next path--the one path you really want to take
  • Tidus: You came here..just to tell me that?
  • Jecht: Gonna cry again?
  • Tidus: Shut up!
  • Jecht: There. That's my boy. Now don't make me come out again, you hear?
  • Tidus Not for a million gill
  • Jecht: See ya.
  • [Walks off as he begins to fade]
  • Tidus: Hey dad...Thanks, huh?
  • Jecht: It was fun. Being you dad and all.

  • Terra: Something’s coming…
  • Warrior of Light: It feels as though the whole world is reeling…
  • Cecil: The air has become stagnant. Perhaps because Cosmos is no more…
  • Terra: I wonder what she meant by us knowing the true darkness…What if the fate of the world is already decided… and all we’ve done was in vain?
  • Zidane: …Sure, maybe all we’ve done is gonna come for nothing. But are we just gonna give up? Now THAT would be a real waste!
  • Warrior of Light: That’s right. All we can do now is keep moving forward. May the crystals bless our world…

  • Exdeath: So, you are still all alive. The power of the crystals is formidable indeed.
  • Bartz: The power of the crystals? Exdeath, tell us what you know! What did you mean when you said that we killed Cosmos?
  • Exdeath: I suppose I can enlighten you with the truth now. Think of what the crystals are. They are born of the harmonious force possessed by a certain deity.
  • Tidus: Harmonious force... You don't mean---
  • Exdeath: Indeed, the crystals are shards of Cosmos. They themselves are the goddess's power. And it is because you had obtained them that Cosmos lost her strength and perished. The power of the crystals has allowed the pawns to live on without their master. But so feeble is the light that remains. Even that shall soon fade to nothing.
  • Bartz: If that light goes out, we would---
  • Exdeath: Return to the womb of the Void.
  • Cloud: Why do this, Cosmos?
  • Squall: Cosmos...why?
  • Exdeath: If you can not wait, I will send you on the journey myself. All shall be returned to nothing, as will I...For eternity!
  • fight
  • Exdeath: This is the sensation....The boundaries of the flesh are broken, dissolving into nothingness...The void is where all begins and all ends. Soon, all of you will become a part of this eternity! [fades]
  • Bartz: Why did Cosmos, make us get the crystals..?
  • Terra: Cosmos...must have known...that her death was a fate that couldn't be avoided.
  • Bartz: And knowing that, still gave us the last of her strength? It must be because she had hope. She wanted to pass it on to us.
  • Cloud: It was with hope, that she had given this world to us.
  • Terra: If the crystals--No, if Cosmos granted us her last remaining moments--
  • Bartz: We can't let them go to waste. Let's fight--with our own strength!
  • Zidane: Let's do it! We'll fight until we drop!
  • Cloud: We'll fight. What else can we do?
  • Emperor Mateus: I see the farce still continues. How wonderful to see you all again.
  • Firion: Emperor...You're still alive?
  • Squall: It can't be... You lost to Firion!
  • Emperor Mateus: I've come back from the afterworld. This world seems to be looking for a new ruler.
  • Firion: It's because of fiends like you that conflict never fades!
  • Emperor Mateus: Save your energy. You've yet to face the true crisis.
  • Onion Knight: What?
  • Squall: Doesn't sound like he's bluffing.
  • Firion: What are you saying?
  • Emperor Mateus: With Chaos victorious, the chains binding us are no more. One schemes the world's return to the Void, while another revels in its ultimate destruction. Each of us has begun to follow the naked desires in our hearts. It is the birth of an utterly chaotic world.
  • Onion Knight: Well, we'll just stop every last one of them!
  • Firion: We're not handing you the future!
  • Emperor Mateus: The future isn't yours to give or take. Be the opening act, dear warriors--until the time comes for my reign.
  • (Fades)
  • Onion Knight: We are all here--
  • Firion: because none of us are alone! There's no time to stand around.
  • Squall: Let's get going.
  • Cloud: Let's go.

  • Kuja: Peace is but a shadow of death...Desperate to forget its painful past...Though we hope for promising years...After shedding a thousand tears...Yesterday's sorrow constantly nears...
  • Zidane: I see that you're just as long-winded as ever.
  • Kuja: And I see you never learn. Where will you go after all has been lost?
  • Zidane: A lady has left the future up to me. I can't run away with my tail between my legs.
  • Kuja: Maybe you need to learn things the hard way.
  • Zidane: Yeah. Let the curtains rise.
  • Kuja: In this world, only the fittest survive. Resign yourself to vanish...into the mellifluous twilight that await!
  • (Fight)
  • Zidane: As long as there's hope, I'm not going anywhere.
  • Kuja: Then...I want you to...erase me.
  • Zidane: What?
  • Kuja: The world has disowned me. I have been defeated by to life itself.
  • (Zidane offers his friend in friendship.)
  • Kuja: Why?
  • Zidane: Do I need a reason...to help someone? Or is my help...not good enough for you?
  • Kuja: It's likely that...I will hurt you again.
  • Zidane: I can take a beating.
  • Kuja: I don't think...I'll ever come to understand you.
  • (He smacks Zidane's hand aside as he gets up.)
  • Zidane: Kuja?
  • Kuja:Off with you. Aren't there more important things for you to seize?
  • (Starts to fade)
  • Kuja: I return...to where I must...
  • (Kuja is gone.)
  • Zidane: We'll going back to the same place.

  • Emperor Mateus: I finally see...You were tied to Cosmos all along.
  • Golbez: Everything I did was to save him...but I'm afraid I was oblivious to your scheme. Using crystals possessing the power of darkness...to escape ruination...
  • Emperor Mateus: Do you not see, Golbez? Would you rather accept the end of the world with despair?
  • Golbez: No, not despair.
  • Emperor Mateus: What?
  • Golbez: This world is formed of shards rough from different realms by the two gods. As long as Chaos reigns, the shards are fated to sink into endless darkness. But if Choas perishes, the shards would be released, returning to where they once were. What I seek is hope. They have the strength to defeat Chaos!
  • Emperor Mateus: What foolishness. How could the god of destruction ever be ruined himself? There are no flaws to my plan. Someday, even the gods shall bow down to me!

  • Cloud of Darkness: In the end of infinite solitude--Disorder shrouds the world in darkness. And now, all things belong in our arms.
  • Onion Knight: Not yet. We'll still here!
  • Cloud of Darkness: You cannot even stand on your own feet without something to protect. What will you do without your goddess to defend?
  • Onion Knight: Her thoughts are with me. They live right here inside.
  • Cloud of Darkness: What insolence. You should know that your bravado is what feeds the darkness!
  • (Fight)
  • Cloud of Darkness: With the gates to the Void wide open, you are already dissolving into darkness. There is nothing more you can do.
  • Onion Knight: You're right. If I listened to my head, I'd probably just run.
  • Cloud of Darkness: Then why fight?
  • Onion Knight: My friends give me the strength. I just need to follow "this," and the path will open up.
  • Cloud of Darkness: Such interesting creatures. But there is no escaping the fate of doom. We will waiting-among the clouds in the Void...
  • (Fades away)
  • Onion Knight: It's only the end if we think that. We'll change that.

  • Garland: This struggle of yours is unseemly, Golbez. And unnecessary. Your guidance led Cosmos to an absolute end. Now the cycle MUST come to an end.
  • Golbez: We have endured many "ends." Surely you are aware that this is no different.
  • Garland: You misunderstand the desires of the Great Will. My task is yet unfinished...This world is but a testing ground for the development of the ultimate weapon...Chaos. And this is precisely why the cycle of battle had to continue for all eternity.
  • Golbez:Garland...What is that you know? Who ARE you?
  • Garland: I am a prisoner of time, a witness to all dimensions, all worlds. Throughout all exists the Great Will...It is the key to escaping my eternal prison. And so I have monitored the endless worlds, guiding the conflict of Chaos and Cosmos. All was to nuture the power of disorder so Chaos could become the ultimate weapon.
  • Golbez:But is that your true desire?
  • Garland: ...What is your point?
  • Golbez: The wheel of fate has already begun to turn. Why not seek a new cycle of hope?
  • Garland: ...There is no end to my cycle, Golbez. Not as long as he and I are one...Still...this could turn out to be interesting. Even if there is no hope in the future, I can still know satisfaction...At the end of this endless conflict.

  • (Golbez attacks Cecil)
  • Golbez: So you still are here. I thought despair would have crushed you by now.
  • Cecil: Brother, why do you do this?
  • Golbez: In this world ruled by chaos, I care only that my wish be fulfilled.
  • Cecil: And what is your wish?
  • Golbez: The answer must be obtained by your own hands. If you seek it...
  • Cecil: I understand. The vow with my friends gives me strength!
  • (Fight)
  • Golbez: The strength of you vow is impressive indeed.
  • Cecil: Brother...Why do this?
  • Golbez: You've no chance against Chaos's forces...if, at this point, you lose the bond with your friends you so cherish.
  • Cecil: You tested me?
  • Golbez: And your strength was impressive. You and your comrades should be able to overcome any despair. I will be waiting for that time to come.
  • Cecil: Where will you--
  • Golbez: I was summoned by Chaos. That alone is a sign of my heart's weakness. I've no right to be near you.
  • Cecil: Please wait...Brother! Do you not care what I believe? Because I believe in you. You can fight and win against yourself. I know you can!
  • Golbez: Cecil...
  • Cecil: And you and I, we also have a bond between us! I swear that I will never lose. So please, when the time comes...Please join me and my friends--
  • Golbez: My brother, you are too kind-hearted to be a knight. But maybe, someday...If the light should smile upon me...
  • (Walks off with Cecil watching.)

  • Onion Knight: With Cosmos gone, we’re doomed to follow. The crystals are the only reasons why we’re still here...
  • Firion: ...Has what we’ve done actually made a difference? There was never a way to preserve ourselves, yet she encouraged us to dream... And she knew those hopes were false the whole time. How cruel can a goddess be?
  • Cloud: ...That’s not it. All we have to do is focus on saving this world. This is the center of everything. If we can restore balance here, the other worlds will come back too. We’ll all go home, just how it was. Maybe better.
  • Tidus: So, we’re not vanishing, but returning... Then our dreams haven’t all been for nothing?
  • Cloud: (Silent) ...I made that up.
  • Tidus: What? You were lying?!
  • Squall: But...it’s not a half-bad lie. Don’t you agree, Firion?
  • Firion: Yeah. It’s not bad at all.

  • Onion Knight: Hey, Squall...
  • Squall: What?
  • Onion Knight: What Cloud said a minute ago... I believe it. I want to believe it’s true.
  • Squall: I’ve been a believer for a while now.
  • Onion Knight: Really?
  • Squall: I remembered this promise I made... There’s someone waiting for me.
  • Onion Knight: ...Wanna tell me more?
  • Squall: ...No. This’s a secret between you and me. Got that?

  • Emperor Mateus: My dear tools of war...Do you come to your master, finally tied of the struggles?
  • Squall: Nobody here needs a master.
  • Cloud: Just here to defeat the enemy.
  • Firion: I've come to settle this.
  • Emperor Mateus: Insects may swarm, but they are insects nonetheless.
  • Zidane: We're not as weak as you might think! We've overcame a lot of hardships to get this far.
  • Emperor Mateus: "Overcome," have you? Then I ask you this: Do you only credit yourselves for obtaining the crystals?
  • Cecil: What are you implying?
  • Emperor Mateus: That everything went as planned. True, giving you her strength was the will of Cosmos herself. But think carefully about who led you to your battles. Is it not obvious--that you have us to thank?
  • Squall: What?!
  • Cloud: No!
  • Firion: Thank YOU?
  • Emperor Mateus: Cosmos may have been weak, but she was a goddess all the same. To eliminate her completely, it was best to force her--to let go of her powers. We provided you with your trials. And indeed, you have obtained the crystals.
  • Zidane: Grr...
  • Emperor Mateus: Granted, there were some amongst us who were overzealous. But you took care of them for us. Indeed, YOU are the forces of darkness that vanquished the goddess.
  • Cecil: So everything was as planned? I've heard enough! You don't understand a thing.
  • Zidane: How could you mock all that Cosmos sacrificed her life for?
  • Squall: Cosmos's will doesn't end here!
  • Cloud: That's it! I won't end up as one of your tools!
  • Firion: You don't take advantage of her will and get away with it!
  • Emperor Mateus: Silence! Death, life, even the divine shall come under my rule...For the only one suited to rule--is I!
  • (Fight)
  • Emperor Mateus: How could I lose...not once but twice? Who ARE you?
  • Firion: Just a swarm of insects.
  • Squall: You messed with the wrong bugs.
  • Cloud: Just another bug.
  • Emperor Mateus: But this is not the end. As long as Chaos exists, so will we. I shall return to rule again...
  • Firion: You mean, back from the dead?
  • Emperor Mateus: Indeed...From the depths of hell, to this world once more--
  • Firion: Wait!
  • Emperor Mateus: I will be back again! Ungaahh!
  • (Fades)
  • Onion Knight: Time is not on our side here...
  • Firion: But unless we defeat Chaos, they'll return again... They knew everything right from the start...
  • Squall: After all, there's only one path...
  • Zidane: I wish they would tell us these things sooner.
  • Cloud: I see now... it really is, a world of chaos.

  • Onion Knight: Not again!
  • Warrior of Light: Could this be...
  • (Nearly fades away)
  • Warrior of Light: I think our time...is running short.
  • Cloud: Chaos, ruler of discord--There is no end to the conflict unless we defeat him.
  • Squall: Whether he's a god or not--we've got to try. Even if our fate...is to disappear...
  • Onion Knight: I'm not running. Cosmos is still with us, fighting alongside us.
  • Warrior of Light: Cosmos did not leave us with merely the crystals. It is up to us to prove that. But...
  • Squall: What's that?
  • Cloud: Is the world...crying?
  • Warrior of Light: What could be waiting for us?
  • Cloud: The real shows' about to start.
  • Onion Knight: Whatever comes my way, I can take it!

  • Ultimecia: Cosmos wished to be free, but ended up pleading for death. The god of discord should follow soon...
  • Squall: What exactly is it that you wait?
  • Ultimecia: A world of compressed time--were you shall worship me, the eternal and solitary being!
  • Squall: Get over yourself.
  • Ultimecia: Why do you interfere? You are same as I, trying to create an ideal world.
  • Squall: Maybe so. But I also have a promise.
  • Ultimecia: Even that will dissolve when I compress the world and make it mine. Poor child. It is such a such a misfortune that you had to be born in my world.
  • Squall: Then I suppose your misfortune was in being my enemy.
  • (Fight)
  • Ultimecia: Time waits for no one. You can grab it, but it flies as soon as you loosen your grip. To condense and to bind--this i all I desire!
  • Squall: No one can take our time.
  • Ultimecia: But all is destined to fade, merely to be swept away by each moment!
  • (Squall cuts her down.)
  • Squall: I couldn't stand a day without a past or future. I need to live each moment--to keep fighting here and now.

  • Sephiroth: As disorder grows in strength, I seem to be regaining my memory. I once took my own life...Perhaps to find a lasting truth beyond this world's illusions.
  • Garland: That is absurd. You cannot have regained memories from before you died.
  • Sephiroth: Does the soul vanish when life ends?
  • Garland: ...What?
  • Sephiroth: If the soul is released from the flesh--to unite with the world as spiritual energy...
  • Garland: ...You are saying the soul lives on?
  • Sephiroth: This is merely conjecture. There is no need for you to take it as truth.
  • Garland: This world is composed of elements collected from different realms. If Chaos were to perish, all would be released to give life to new worlds.
  • Sephiroth': If this world ends and a new world begins...what if your wish for the future?
  • Garland: My wish...? Do I have the right to have one? I am warfare incarnate, a prisoner to the cycle of battle. As it was, so it shall be...No matter what the world desires.

  • Sephiroth: Such a good boy. You've come back to me--where you belong.
  • Cloud: What are you talking about?
  • Sephiroth: You cling to me because you can't stand the despair.
  • Cloud: I don't remember clinging to you.
  • Sephiroth: Relax, Cloud. This disease called hope is eating you alive. The world of suffering was born out of such half-baked ideals.
  • Cloud: If that's the case, I have to endure the suffering. There's no moving on if I run from it.
  • Sephiroth: If that is what you wish for--You shall drown in pain! On your knees! I want you to beg for forgiveness!
  • (Fight)
  • Sephiroth: What is it that drives you?
  • Cloud: Only myself.
  • Sephiroth: You don't exist anywhere.
  • Cloud: Enough! Looking for a reason to fight, wandering around for an answer...They're all my decisions! I'm not tied to you anymore!
  • Sephiroth: Yet my shadow is burned into you heart. We'll meet again, Cloud. I'll keep coming back--as long as you are who you are.
  • (Fades)
  • Cloud: No thanks. The one I really want to meet is...

  • Chaos: I was having a long dream--in the midst of disorder...
  • Garland: So you are awake. What kind of dream was it?
  • Chaos: Hmph. It was ridiculous. Cosmos and I were governing the world together.
  • Garland: That's--
  • Chaos: Laughable, is it not? In that world, I was a god that suppressed disorder. But strangely, the images are still vivid in my eyes...All the people smiling...the warmth of the days I spent with Cosmos...For one who has lost all memory, why did the dream have to be so cruel?
  • Garland: Chaos...if this is to be our final battle, there is something I must share with you. That this conflict, which has endlessly repeated itself, is according to the Great Will. And I am the one who made this world the battleground for harmony and disorder. You had no memory, so I guided you in accordance to the Great Will's wish.
  • Chaos: It was just as I thought...you were the beginning.
  • Garland: No, Chaos...For myself...you are the begining. Before the Great Will led me to this realm, when I was on the edge of death, it was you who sent me two thousands years into the past. You are me...and I...am you.
  • Chaos: Then I shall--

  • Tidus: Something wrong? Have you...finally lost it?
  • Warrior of Light: No. I am still determined to defeat Chaos. That hasn't wavered, but--Unlike all of you, I have no memory off where I was, or where I must return...I don't even know my own name.
  • Bartz: Nothing is certain--not for any of us. Anything in the future can easily change, like clouds in the wind.
  • Cecil: Not to worry. It will come to you someday. And even if your past does not...You can still believe in the future. Right?
  • Warrior of Light: ...Yes. Thank you, everyone.

  • Warrior of Light:...what is it?
  • Tidus: There's more to memories than what happened before we got here. If we do end up going back to our separate worlds...it'd be nice if you remember fighting alongside us...just once in a while.
  • Warrior of Light: Of course, I won't forget this. I will never forget this.

  • Garland: Welcome, brave warriors. If Chaos is who you seek, he is up ahead, watching the mayhem unfold.
  • Zidane: We meet again, you lummox.
  • Warrior of Light: Garland! As expected, you live again.
  • Garland: It appear the end draws near for you.
  • Cloud: We're not going quietly.
  • Warrior of Light: We will defeat Chaos, and stop the cycle of conflict. And that will be our final mission!
  • Onion Knight: Right! That's our final mission!
  • Garland: Then let us begin! We shall entrust our lives into fate's cold embrace...and revel in a joyous festival of Chaos!
  • (Fight. Garland evilly laughs)
  • Onion Knight: Has he lost it?
  • Warrior of Light: What is so funny?
  • Zidane: What? What's so funny?
  • Tidus: What are you laughing at?
  • Garland: Rejoice. The chains of time have been severed. We shall never be reborn again. The cycle comes to an end as catastrophe draws near.
  • Squall:: Catastrophe?
  • Garland: Yes. The ultimate discord has awakened. Chaos means to use his powers to destroy the world--and himself.
  • Warrior of Light: The world...along with himself? For what reason?
  • Garland: If chaos is a state without form, where all things collide and blend...the ultimate chaos would be the denial of all existence, would it not? At battle's end, there will be no joy, no glory, no salvation, no future. To the god Chaos, a world without Cosmos is naught but an empty husk.
  • Warrior of Light: He'll decided to destroy it all because of emptiness in his heart?
  • Cloud: You mean he's bored, so he's erasing it all?
  • Onion Knight: Because it feels empty? How selfish can a god get?
  • Garland: It is what the god has decided...
  • Warrior of Light: And you...Are you alright with this?
  • Garland: If this world loses its form, I only need to find another cycle. The soul of strife shall endure forever, beyond time and space! Farewell, warriors of Cosmos. May we meet again in the afterworld...
  • (Fade away.)
  • Warrior of Light: Chaos...Our next battle is our last...
  • Tidus: How selfish can you get?
  • Cloud: Chaos, you gone too far.

--

  • Warrior of Light:The world now faces true disorder...
  • (Fade)
  • Tidus: No! We're not vanishing just yet!
  • (They resist)
  • Terra: Maybe Chaos is trying to erase even his own despair...
  • Cecil: The sadness of absolute solitude, having lost his equal in Cosmos...
  • Onion Knight: No way...That's just wrong! Trying to erase everything is no different than running away!
  • Bartz: Cosmos didn't run away, but held on to hope. And the crystals are what she gave us to prove that!
  • Firion: We are not mere pawns being moved about by destiny. We've come this far because we have dream we want to protect.
  • Cloud: Once you stop traveling down the path you've chosen, you might as well have disappeared.
  • Squall: We will stick to our paths 'til the end. And then...we'll have something to tell Chaos.
  • Zidane: Right. Our time here may be limited. But there is always something we can leave behind.
  • Warrior of Light: As Cosmos bestowed hope upon all of us--we, too, bestow upon this world a similar gift. The light shall be passed.

  • Chaos: At the end of the dream...even chaos...tear itself apart!
  • (His power explodes from him as he raises, with the heroes braving the gust of air bursting forth)
  • Chaos: Let us mark the end of this...eternal conflict!

Chaos[edit]

  • Chaos: Grr...what is this...? Rushing into me...Every single memory in the world...! The never-ending cycle...of grief...infinite...discord...hatred...Graaaaaagh!
  • Fight
    • Chaos: Hope does not exist/You cannot suprass me. (Open)
