Your boyfriend, who you thought was in Mobliz, passed away some time ago. I have been writing in his stead. We humans tend to allow the past to destroy our lives. I implore you not to let this happen. It is time to look forward, to rediscover love, and embrace the beauty of life. You have so much life left to live.... Cyan

  • Flames, BEGONE!
  • I have a special little granddaughter!
  • All of you have that sparkle in your eyes…Well, this old man’s not giving up, either!
  • So full of energy! I must be the only one getting old…
  • So there I was , creeping through those caves that seemed to go on forever…I finally reached the deepest, darkest cavern and there he is, right in front of me. I stared the ugly brute straight in the eye, raised my staff, and let him have it. Bam! Thwack! Pow! Right in the kisser! Oh, I wish you could’ve been there to see me…
  • So I guess our town's little secret is out now...
  • All right, make some room for me.
  • NOT...A...THING

Kefka/Cefca Palazzo[edit]

  • Son of a Submariner! You'll pay for this!
  • Once Leo's gone, I can turn this water into a flowing river of poison! Anyone who touches it'll be pushing up daisies! Hee-hee...
  • (About the prisoners of the castle his men are to poisoned) Who cares? They're the ones who were stupid enough to get caught by the enemy!
  • "Wait," he says... Do I look like a waiter?
  • Hee-hee... Nothing beats the sweet music of hundreds of voices screaming in unison! Uwee-hee-hee!
  • I'm a god! I'm all-powerful! Uwee-hee-hee... I'll collect more Espers I'll extract their magic... And then... ... ... I'll revive the Warring Triad! I've already drained all your powers! You're useless to me now! You too! Take a hike!
  • Gah! How dare they put me in a place like this! ...Hmph! I just can't believe it! What a bore.
    • while imprisoned
  • Read my lips - mercy is for wimps! There's a reason "oppose" rhymes with "dispose"...If they get in your way, kill them!
  • Oh dear...you wanna fight me?! This is just dreadful!
  • How 'bout a little Magitek mayhem?
  • I don't care for the appearance of this pitiful little hamlet... So burn it!!

    • after killing Emperor Gestahl
  • I've acquired the ultimate power! Observe...Such magnificent power! You're all nothing more than fleas compared to me now! Embrace your destruction... It is the fate of all things.
  • I will destroy everything... I will create a monument to non-existence!
  • Why do people insist on creating things that will inevitably be destroyed? Why do people cling to life, knowing that they must someday die? ...Knowing that none of it will have meant anything once they do?
  • Why do you build, knowing destruction is inevitable? Why do you yearn to live, knowing all things must die? (Alternate version of the previous line which appears in the Anthology FMV)
  • And did you all find your "somethings" in this broken world that just won't die?
  • Bleh! You people make me sick! You sound like lines from a self-help book! If that's how it's going to be... I'll snuff them all out! Every last one of your sickening, happy little reasons for living!
  • Hee-hee-hee! But what fun is destruction if no "precious" lives are lost?

  • Uh, well, Mom always said I was a slow learner... but I eat FAST!!
  • Oh, all right, Uncle Ulty REALLY wants you to paint his portrait!

  • I'd try not to make him mad... He gets hungry when he's irritated. (Referring to Typhon)
  • He's not so great with words, but his strength'll blow you away! Heh-heh... (Referring to Typhon)
  • Looks like I lose again! But today I brought along a buddy of mine! Mr. Typhon! Come on down!!! (Referring to Typhon)
  • I know what you're thinking... "Man, that was cheap"! So sorry, so sorry...

Others[edit]

  • Albrook/Alburg resident: How can you make a Gil in a world like this?
  • Banon/Bannan: Once, when people were pure and innocent, there was a box they were told never to open. But one man went and opened it anyway. He unleashed all the evils of the world: envy... greed... pride... violence... control... All that was left in the box was a single ray of light: Hope. We now confront those evils... And you are that last ray of light, our only hope...
  • Cid: Wow! All of a sudden I have a granddaughter!
  • Chadarnook/Chadnook: G'fu, fu, fu...Who're these numbskulls? No one...NO ONE...is going to remove me from this fine new painting!!
    • before attacking the party in Owzer's Mansion
  • Dadaluma: Good day, fine sirs, how may I be of service? I hate fighting so I better let you pass!
    • attacks party
  • Duncan: The Earth yawned open to take me, but I scrambled to safety!
  • Figaro Guard: Kefka's "One shy of a six pack!"
  • Figaro Guard (FFVI Advance): I hear that some fanatical members of the Cult of Kefka insist on spelling Kefka's name with Cs instead of Ks. That just seems silly to me. Kefka's Kefka. He's still the same villain, no matter how you spell his name.

(FFVI fan translation features the villain's name as Cefca.)

  • General Leo: Shut up, Kefka. I oughta....
    • last words
  • Gestahl/Gastra: Soldiers of the Empire! We stand at the dawn of a new age! The lost power of magic has returned to us! We are the chosen ones!
  • Gestahl/Gastra: Celes, child... You alone are special. Why don't I give you and Kefka the task of creating progeny to populate my new Magitek Empire?
  • Gestahl/Gastra: I'm simply going to put you to sleep using the very power you unleashed! What's so funny? Well then, it's only suitable that you fall asleep laughing!
    • To Kefka on the Floating Continent
  • Imperial soldier: Returner Scum!
  • Imperial soldier: Hey, you! You're Returners!
  • Imperial soldier: Scram, you blockhead.
  • Imperial soldier: I'm not buying anything!
  • Imperial soldier: Three cheers for the Empire!
  • Imperial soldier: I oppose peace!
  • Kaiser Dragon/CzarDragon: Humans and their unsatiable greed... Your lust for power always leads to a lust of blood... This place is a sanctuary for wayward souls... What business have you filthy creatures here? You slaughter my bretheren, and befoul their rest with the profanity of your continued existence... You should not have come here. In the name of all dragonkind, I shall grant you the death you so desire. I am the dealer of destruction... I am the font from which fear springs... I am Kaiser... And your time is at an end.
    • Kaiser Dragon is encountered in an extra dungeon which only exists in the Gameboy Advance release of the game, he was planned to be in the SNES version as CzarDragon but was cut)
  • Mayor of Thamasa: Magic is forbidden!
  • Mayor of Thamasa: Welcome! Magic? What is this Magic?
  • Maranda/Miranda Citizen: A knight came here recently... He was amazing! But his heart was full of chaos... When he can cope with the pain, he'll be the mightiest warrior alive.
  • Mobliz/Molbriz kid: I wanna see Katrin's baby!
  • Narshe/Narche/Nalch guards: Mashine-riding self-important swine! Take this!
  • Narshe/Narche/Nalch resident: Narshe is a neutral city.! We want no war here, but that %#$@& Empire won't listen!
  • Narshe/Narche/Nalch resident: Magic? Pshaw, what nonsense!
  • Old man: Deathgaze? I'd rather take an acid bath than fight that thing!
  • Rachel: I have to go now... ...I'll always love you... You must now cast off the anguish you've been harboring inside for so long.. Today I set your heart free. You must learn to love yourself again, and regain your self respect. ...... Phoenix! Be reborn again!! And give your power... to Locke!!
    • last words to Locke, after she is resurrected by the Phoenix and dies again
  • Ramuh/Ramah: Gestahl's methods are incorrect. You can't drain a live Esper of all its power. It is only when we are reduced to Magicite that our abilities can be transferred in total...
  • South Figaro Resident: We may be thieves, but at least we have goals in life!
  • South Figaro Kid: Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! I'm Magitek Armor!
  • South Figaro Resident: If the "Light of Judgement" burns down our town 100 times, we'll rebuild it 200 times! Wait, does that even make sense?
  • Thief in Zozo: Zozo!? Never heard of it.
  • Thief in Zozo: Great people, here!
  • Ultima Buster/Atma: I am the one known as Ultima... Forged an eternity ago and left here... Forgotten in the mists of time... Long have I pondered what I should do... Long, long have I pondered... But now it seems I have an answer...

  • Siegfried/Ziegfried: Aha! The ox bellows! Allow me to introduce my blade!
  • Siegfried/Ziegfried: Ha, ha, ha. Give up?

Dialogue[edit]

Arvis: Took you long enough! Busy with all that robbing and plundering, I presume?
Locke: I prefer the term "treasure hunting"!
Arvis: Ha! Semantic nonsense!
Locke: There's a huge difference! Anyway, is there something you need me to do?
Arvis: There is indeed. ...I met the girl.
Locke: ...!? You don't mean...?
Arvis: The city guard is pursuing her as we speak. This city has the strength to stand up to the Empire, but it won't use it. The people are just too stubbornly independent to join an underground resistance group like the Returners. I tried to explain that the Empire was controlling the girl, but they wouldn't even listen...
Locke: All right... So, you want me to get her out of Narshe?
Arvis: That would be the idea. Make your way to Figaro for the time being...

Cyan: This is the Phantom Train. It carries the departed to the other side.
Sabin: Wait! I don't want to go THERE!

[dining aboard the Phantom Train...]
Sabin: [pounding the table] Food! Food! Bring me everything you've got!
[Sabin is served by the ghost of a waiter]
Cyan: It this train's food tr-truly safe to eat?
Sabin: What are you worried about? Can't wage war on an empty stomach!
Cyan: ... Do what thou wilt, sir. I'm sure there is no stopping
Sabin: Whew! I'm stuffed! Shall we get moving?

Gau: Gau's treasure...shiny, shiny! Shiny, shiny, shiny!!!
Sabin: ...Can anything be THAT shiny?

Terra: When Locke and I escaped he fiddled with something right around here.
Edgar: Knowing him there's probably some hidden switch around here.

[aboard the Blackjack]
Locke: I can't believe this clunky old thing can fly... You sure it'll stay in the air?
Setzer: When things fall, they fall... Life's a game of chance. You play your cards, and Fate plays hers...

Relm: What's wrong, lover boy?
Edgar: ...How old are you?
Relm: Ten... Why? Weirdo. I'm going on ahead, okay?
Edgar: Not even a lady yet... Here's hoping you're still around in eight years, kid.

Ultros: Looks like I lose again! But today I brought along a buddy of mine! Mr. Typhon! Come on down!
[Typhon appears]
Typhon: Fungahhh!
Ultros: He's not so great with words, but his strength'll blow you away! Heh-heh...I'd try not to make him mad... He gets hungry when he's irritated.

Edgar: Several years and the little shrimp's grown into a whopping lobster!
Sabin: And you're a king crab!

Locke: Edgar, what's the matter? You look positively spooked!
Edgar: Dddddddid you see what I just saw?
Locke: Yeah, this kid seems loaded for bear.
Edgar: She's amazing! That was Magic! M-A-G-I-C!
Locke: M M M M M M M M M M M M M MAGIC?!
Both: Pswswpswswpswswpsw.

Strago: Go to your room!
Relm: I will not! What a fussy old man!

Strago: Alright, if you insist.
Relm: That's better!

[On the Blackjack, after the banquet]
Cid: Wow, what a ship!
Setzer: That landing really messed up the engine. It'll take a while to fix...
Cid: I'll help. No machine can stump me!
Setzer: Don't touch anything!
Cid: Go kill time in the casino! I can speed this crate up!
[In the Japanese version, Cid claims that he can speed the ship up by removing the casino, which is what angered Setzer]
Setzer: ...... You little...!! Get outta my sight!
Cid: But I could really make this thing hum...!
[Cid leaves]
Terra: You love this ship, more than anything, huh?
Setzer: Actually, when I was young there was something I was mad about...
Terra: ...huh?
Setzer: In my youth I dreamed of having the world's fastest airship.
Terra: You mean......
Setzer: At that time there was a young girl who piloted the Falcon, the fastest vessel ever made. Sometimes we were the worst of rivals...but other times we were the best of friends. We always egged each other on to go faster and higher. When she disappeared along with her ship...I felt like I lost my spirit.
Setzer: ...Poor Daryl...

Strago: Relm! Is that you, my dear? You're alive!
Relm: Idiot! Of course I'm alive!
Strago: Oh, I'm so happy...
Relm: Did you think I was gonna check out before you, old man?
Strago: You're as foul mouthed as ever, bless your heart!

Leo: Having trouble sleeping? I hear your emotions have returned...
Terra: ...It's strange, isn't it? The Empire used me, controlled my very thoughts...and now here I am, cooperating with the same people.
Leo: People are people. Not everyone in the Empire is like Kefka.
Terra: So...what about you?
Leo: I knew that you were half esper and being made to suffer through horrible experiments... Yet I did nothing. I'm no better than Kefka.
Terra: If a human and an esper can love one another... Do you think a human and I could love each other?
Leo: Of course!
Terra: But... I don't even know what it feels like to love someone.
Leo: You're still young. ...Someday you'll know. I'm sure of it.

Welcome, friends! I knew you'd make it here, so I've prepared some suitable entertainment for you!

How long are you going to let the destruction continue?

Kefka: I've tapped into the ultimate power. Observe...!

Kefka: Such magnificent power! You are like insects to me!

Kefka: I will exterminate everyone, and everything!

People will keep rebuilding the things you take from them!

Kefka: Then I'll destroy those too. Kefka: Why do people rebuild things they know are going to be destroyed? Kefka: Why do people cling to life when they know they can't live forever? Kefka: Think how meaningless each of your lives is!

It's not the net result of one's life that's important! It's the day-to-day concerns, the personal victories, and the celebration of life... and love! It's enough if people are able to experience the joy that each day can bring!

Kefka: And have you found your "joy" in this nearly dead world of ours?

Yes!

Terra: I know what love is...!

Locke: And I have learned to celebrate life... and the living.

Cyan: My family lives on inside of me.

Shadow: I know what friendship is... and family...

Edgar: It is my dream to build a kingdom in which I can guarantee freedom and dignity.

Sabin: I have come to experience anew the love of my brother...

Celes: I've met someone who can accept me for what I am.

Strago: I have a special little Granddaughter!

Relm: And I have a brave Grandpa who'll stand by me through it all.

Setzer: My friend's airship... and her love!

Mog: I have my friends here!

Gau: You my friends! Me uwaooo all of you!

Kefka: This is sickening... You sound like chapters from a self-help booklet! Kefka: Prepare yourselves!

Kefka: Now, for my next trick, I will make you all... disappear!

Kefka, you don't know what you're doing! Stop!

Kefka: I command the greatest power in the universe! Kefka: You are all helpless before me!

Kefka: I will destroy everything... I will create a monument to non-existence!

Life will go on! There will always be people, and dreams!

Kefka: No! I will hunt them down. I will destroy it all! Destroy! Destroy! Destroy!!

We will not allow you to harm another living thing.

Kefka: Hee, hee, hee!! But what fun is destruction if no "precious" lives are lost?

It's over, Kefka!

Opera Scene[edit]

Impresario
The West and the East were waging war...
Draco, the West's great hero, thinks of his love, Maria.
Is she safe? Is she waiting...?

Draco/Dracu
Oh Maria! Oh Maria!
Please, hear my voice!
How I long to be with you!

Impresario
The forces of the West fell, and Maria's castle was taken.
Prince Ralse, of the East, took her hand by force.
But she never stopped yearning for Draco...

Maria
Oh my hero, so far away now.
Will I ever see your smile?
Love goes away, like night into day.
It's just a fading dream.
I'm the darkness, you're the stars.
Our love is brighter than the sun.
For eternity, for me there can be,
Only you, my chosen one...
Must I forget you? Our solemn promise?
Will autumn take the place of spring?
What shall I do? I'm lost without you.
Speak to me once more!

Draco
Come, Maria. Follow my lead.

Draco
Ha ha ha ha...

Maria
We must part now, my life goes on.
But my heart won't give you up.
Ere I walk away, let me hear you say
I meant as much to you....
So gently, you touched my heart.
I will be forever yours.
Come what may, I won't age a day,
I'll wait for you, always...

Chancellor
Prince Ralse is looking for a dance partner.
Leave the past behind.
Our kingdom is adopting the spirit of the East.

Messenger
The survivors of the West attack!

Ralse
Impossible!

Soldiers
Attack!!

Draco
Wait!!

Draco
Maria!

Maria
Draco, I've waited so long.
I knew you'd come.

Ralse
Maria will finally have to become my queen!

Draco
For the rest of my life, I'll keep you near...

Ralse
It's a duel!
