Mega Man ZX
Game Script
by RandyPandy

================================================================================
Introduction
================================================================================

After playing and writing the script for ZX, I decided I might as well finish
the script for ZX Advent as well. Grey and Ashe have a couple of more different
characteristics than Vent and Aile did.

I decided not to include the tutorials Model A gives for the A-trans. It's quite
long, and my purpose is a basic script for the game.

One more thing: sometimes, the voice-overs and the actual text conflict a bit. I
went with the actual text.

Anyways, on with the script! Grey's will be first, and Ashe's will be second.

Grey's Story
================================================================================

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 1 - Awakening
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mick: Well, how's that lock coming?

Robin: This is one tough nut to crack... but I'm almost there. Yes! Got it!
We're in.

(The two Hunters run into a room with some machinery.)

Mick: ...Not again! It looks like this isn't it either. I was hoping we'd find
it on the first try, and show it off to the guys back at Hunter's Camp.

(Robin walks forward and notices a capsule.)

Robin: Hey! There's something in there!

(The two run towards it.)

Robin: What the...!?

(A boy, Grey, is in the capsule.)

Mick: ...A Reploid kid? No way! What's it doing here?

(He walks closer to it.)

Robin: Hey, don't touch it! If you trip the security, we'll have Mechaniloids
crawling all over us.

(An alarm begins to ring. A group of Mavericks appear. Anime cutscene. The two
Hunters and the Mavericks attack each other. Robin is thrown to the capsule,
cracking it. The capsule begins to unlock as another alarm rings. Eventually,
after the battle, the capsule opens and Grey falls out. He stands up and notices
in shock the bodies of both the Hunters and the Mavericks. Anime cutscene end.)

Grey: What the!? W-what... happened? Where am I? Who am I? Hnnngnn! I can't
remember anything...

(A female Reploid teleports in.)

Grey: W-Who are you!?

Pandora: I... am Pandora. Grey... I'm here to dispose of you...

Grey: Grey? Is that my name? What do you mean dispose of me!?

Pandora: You... are like me... A Mega Man... But you were awakened... before the
mind control sequence was completed...

Grey: Mega Man? Mind control!? What have you done to me!?

(Pandora attacks Grey, who falls to the ground near a Hunter.)

Grey: Ugnnh!

Pandora: Defectives must be disposed of...

Grey: I don't think this guy will be needing his weapon anymore... Aaaaagh!

(He grabs the gun, shoots at Pandora, who, shocked, deflects it, and bolts.)

Grey: *pant*... *pant*...! Why did she call me defective!? Anyway, I have to
find a way out of here before they kill me!

(Grey continues until he encounters a giant Mechaniloid outside. Grey eventually
destroys the Mechaniloid, but the bridge he is standing on collapses and he
falls down.)

Grey: Aaaagghh!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 2 - Hunter's Camp
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Grey wakes up on a bed in a room. He sits up.)

Grey: Mmmwwaaa! Huh...? Where am I?

(He gets off the bed. Billy walks in the door. Grey, startled, pulls out the
gun and aims it at him.)

Billy: Whoa! Hey, let's just calm down, OK!?

Grey: Are you here to kill me!?

Billy: I'm the one who found you outside the camp! Put down your weapon! I'm not
going to hurt you!

(Grey puts the gun away and relaxes.)

Grey: You... helped me?

(Billy walks over to him.)

Billy: Yeah, don't mention it. What's your name? And what the heck happened to
you?

Grey: Grey... at least, that's what she called me anyway. When I woke up, I was
in some kind of building... And there was a woman... She said her name was
Pandora. Right before she tried to kill me. I ran... Everything after that is a
blur.

Billy: Well, there must be some reason you can't remember... Don't let it get
you down. It'll all come back to you. This is Hunter's Camp, a gathering place
for bounty Hunters. They're a pretty rowdy bunch, but they're all good people.
It's good to have guys like them around. Hey, you haven't had a chance to see
the camp yet. OK, exit this room and meet me at the transerver next door.
There's something I wanna show you.

(Billy starts to leave.)

Grey: Uh... Umm...!

(Billy stops and turns around.)

Grey: ...Uh, thank you for saving me...

Billy: *smile* Like I said, don't mention it. I'm sure you would have done the
same for me.

(He leaves. Grey follows him to the transerver.)

Billy: That machine's called a transerver. You can use it to save data. Go
ahead, get up there and press up on the +Control Pad.

(Grey receives a Hunter's license and saves his data.)

Grey: A Hunter's License? I don't get it...

Billy: By accessing the server, you've been officially registered as a Hunter.
There are transervers spread out all over the place. When you find one, be sure
to save, and save often!

Grey: Wait a minute! I never said that I wanted to be a Hunter...!

Billy: Just keep it. There are a lot of illegal Hunters, Raiders and such out
there. You can't get into Hunter's Camp without your Hunter's License. Take a
good look around later on. Oh, by the way! Do you wanna help me with a mission?

Grey: A mission?

Billy: Job requests we Hunters get now and then. You get paid when you carry out
a job successfully. Hey, it's a living. Anyway, I've got to get ready for the
mission, so I'll be at the station. Give me a holler when you're ready to go.

(Billy walks away.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 3 - Model A
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Grey heads to the train station. He sees Billy on a train with a container.)

Billy: For this mission, we have to take this container to Legion Headquarters.

Grey: Legion...? I guess I've got a lot to learn.

Billy: ...Man, you must've bumped your head pretty hard... Let's roll out!

(Grey jumps onto the train next to Billy and the container. The trains starts to
move.)

Billy: Legion is the coalition government created after the war several
centuries ago, by representatives from every nation. It makes laws that govern
the lives of Humans and Reploids. Basically, it's the most powerful organization
on Earth. I bet the Legion database has info about you too. That's why I invited
you to come along.

Grey: Isn't using a train for just one container overdoing it a little?

Billy: The stuff in that container is called Biometal. It's very rare and very
valuable. We recovered it from some Raiders who pillaged it from ancient ruins.
Legion pays huge bounties for Biometal. So, there's a reason we overdo it.

Grey: Hmm, Biometal... Why does that sound familiar?

????: Does he know about me...?

Grey: Who said that!?

????: Hm? You can hear me?

(Grey looks around, but sees nothing.)

Grey: What? Who's there...?

(Suddenly, Mavericks begin bombing the train.)

Billy: Dang! Mavericks!

(He fires back, destroying one.)

Billy: They're going for the engine! You wait here!

(He runs off. Pandora and a male Reploid teleport in.)

Grey: You!

Pandora: There you are... Defective Mega Man...

???? (male): Pandora, you couldn't dispose of this one measly imp?

Pandora: My apologies, Prometheus.

Prometheus: No matter. We'll finish him off and take back the Biometal.

Grey: I've had it! Do you think I'm just going to sit here and let you two kill
me when I don't even know why!?

(Prometheus attacks Grey, injuring him and smashing the container.)

Prometheus: Just lay there and die quietly, scum.

Grey: No way! I'm... I'm...

????: Hey! Grey! If you want to live, do as I say. Since you can hear me, we
should be able to Megamerge! I'll lend you my strength!

Grey: W-Who are you?

Model A: I'm Biometal Model A! Now I want you to focus. OK, yell, "MEGAMERGE!"
as loud as you can!

(Anime cutscene. Grey stands up.)

Grey: MEGAMERGE!

Model A: Biolink Established! M.E.G.A. System Online!

(Model A and Grey fuse together as Prometheus's eyes widen before he grins
insanely. Anime cutscene end.)

Grey: This power coursing through me... What is it? I feel like I know this
power... This is Mega Man power!

Pandora: Mega Man... Model A!

Prometheus: *guffaw* Well, isn't this a surprise! Our Defective just Megamerged!
I've got to hand it to you. It looks like you've got what it takes to
participate in this little game.

Pandora: Prometheus... Isn't that kid...?

Prometheus: Hmph, no matter! So Grey... You can keep the Model A, for now.
You've got a few more encounters with other Mega Men ahead of you. You must
defeat them in battle! If you somehow manage to survive until the end, then
you'll known who you really are... And perhaps all there is to know about the
world! So, let the game begin! HIS Game of Destiny!

(Prometheus and Pandora teleport away.)

Grey: Game of Destiny? What's up with them...?

(The train shakes.)

Grey: Oh, shoot! I have to help the others!

Model A: Wait a minute! Shouldn't we be getting out of here!?

Grey: If you don't want to come, transform me back to normal, and I'll go by
myself!

Model A: OK, OK, I'll go! Anything is better than what those guys were going to
do to me! I'll help you... if you promise not to leave me. Deal?

Grey: ...OK! Let's go!

(Grey travels across the train until he hears a noise.)

????: *snort* *wheeze*!!

(A deer Reploid bursts from inside the train.)

????: Model A! You broke rule! You make big mistake. The one you choose, no
good! He Defective! You lend him your power, no good!

Model A: Mistake? What're you yapping about? You don't know me!

Grey: Who's this!? He's different from the other Mavericks...

Buckfire: Me not Maverick! Me Pseudoroid. Me Buckfire! You get away from
Prometheus and Pandora, but not from I! Buckfire obey rule! Buckfire will pummel
you into ground!

(They fight. Grey defeats Buckfire.)

Buckfire: You!... traitor... Our future... Our world...! Yeeeoooow!

(He explodes, leaving behind some DNA, which Grey absorbs.)

Grey: W-What just happened?

Model A: *chuckle* Do you want to see something cool? Touch the icon on the
bottom screen!

(Grey does so and transforms into Buckfire.)

Model A: Touch the icon on the bottom screen again, and I can change back!

(Grey changes back.)

Grey: Is that power why everyone wants Biometal so bad?

Model A: Beats me. I'm not even sure why I was created. This train is all out of
chug. So, let's head back to the camp and figure another way to get to Legion
Headquarters.

Grey: Are you going to help me!?

Model A: Well, it's that or you'll leave me here, right? Besides, we've got
goons after us, and we don't know why. It's better for the both of us that we
work together!

Grey: Thank you! First we have to help the people who are injured!

Model A: What? Forget about those Hunters and let's get back to camp.

Grey: No way! I'm not leaving them! If you don't want to come, I can go by...

Model A: OK, OK, alright already! For crying out loud! Why did you have to be
the only one around I could Megamerge with?


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 4 - The Sage Trinity
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Grey and Billy are outside the train station in Hunter's Camp.)

Billy: ...Thanks, you hold on to Model A. That's probably safer. But, I need you
to go to the transerver and send a mission report. No mission report for the
client, no bounty. Say, we're trying to fix the train, but we need a few more
parts. Tell 'em we won't let 'em down, and to wait just a little longer.

(Billy walks into the train station. Grey heads to the transerver submits the
mission report. Someone calls him.)

????: So, you're the one who submitted the mission report? I'm connecting your
transerver to Legion's via a secure channel.

???? (red): So, you're the Biometal's Chosen One... a Mega Man.

Grey: ...Who are you dudes?

???? (yellow): *chuckle* "You dudes," huh? I guess you really have lost your
memory.

???? (blue): Go easy on him, Mikhail. He doesn't know any better.

???? (red): We are called the Sage Trinity, and we are the supreme authority of
Legion. I'm Master Thomas.

Mikhail: And I'm Master Mikhail, nice to meet you, Mega Man.

Albert: And I am Master Albert. How do you do, Grey?

Grey: How do you know my name? Have we met before!?

Thomas: Calm down. We know about you from the Hunters' report. We're running
your file through the Legion database now.

Mikhail: We'll soon know who you really are. Meanwhile, so you're not just
sitting around waiting, we have a mission for you. We'd like you to bring the
Biometal directly to us.

(Grey receives a Red Card Key.)

Albert: It seems the train bound for Legion Headquarters was damaged. That card
key should allow you access to a new area. There's a crashed Raider airship not
far from you. Find it and you should be able to get the parts you need to repair
the train.

Thomas: The Biometal holds technology and information that we don't fully
understand, like the M.E.G.A. mechanism which allows you to Megamerge and become
a Mega Man.

Mikhail: And not to mention centuries worth of lost history!

Albert: That's enough, Mikhail. ...We have a duty to study the Biometal so its
secrets are never misused. Grey, can we count on you?

Grey: So, if I go to Legion, you'll tell me about Model A?

Thomas: That is correct. First, head for the crash site. Dangers abound, so give
heed to the directions of your fellow Hunters.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 5 - The Tower of Verdure
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Grey heads into the tower. Eventually, an alarm begins to ring.)

Security: ALERT! ALERT! SECURITY SYSTEM MALFUNCTION! ALERT CONDITION 3 IN
EFFECT! SEAL ALL EXITS!

(The exits to the room seal themselves.)

Model A: Y-Yo this isn't good!

(Grey tries to go back out the entrance.)

Grey: It's no use, the doors are locked! We can't get out!

Albert: This is Albert! Are you alright Grey? That old tower was built to
surveil the surrounding area. The security has been fortified against Mavericks,
but there seems to be a malfunction. There should be a computer at the top that
controls the security system. You must get there and disarm the system, Grey.

(Grey continues through the area until he finds a Maverick harrassing a Raider
named Gerry.)

????: For a Raider to make it this far is quite something... *evil laugh* I like
you! Accept my thorny embrace and allow your soul to be scattered like petals on
the breeze!

Gerry: *Aargh*! S-Stay away from me!

Grey: Stop!

(The Maverick turns around in surprise. He notices Grey.)

????: Like honeybees, one by one they are drawn to my nectar. You're quite a
handsome boy. I like you.

Gerry: Graaah!

(Gerry bolts through the other door.)

Grey: So, you're the one who caused the security system to malfunction!

????: I'm planting a seed! A seed that will lay the foundation for the new world
and the new king! It grows by feeding on the fear of those unfortunate enough to
wander into this tower.

(He transforms into Rospark.)

Rospark: I am Rospark. Come and cry in my bosom. Cry out in terror and pain!

(The two fight. Grey defeats Rospark.)

Rospark: I underestimated you! I had no idea your power was so fiery...! I'm
wilting... wilting! Yeeeargh!

(He explodes. Grey receives Rospark's DNA. Grey finds Gerry in the next room.)

Gerry: *Ugh* You're one of the gang who attacked our airship, aren't you!? No...
Stop... Stay away...!

Model A: It's no use... He's in a total panic.

Grey: Calm down! I'm here to help you!

Gerry: S-S-Stay back, get away!

(Gerry is hit with a strange purple energy.)

Gerry: Eeeagghhhh!

(Gerry collapses as the purple energy, a Cyber-Elf, flies up to a machine in the
background, which begins to hum. Gerry disappears.)

Grey: W-What the heck just happened!?

(Two people, one in green and one in purple, teleport in.)

???? (green): Total and utter defeat... That man, unable to endure the terror,
fell victim to Model W.

Model A: Model W!? This humongous thing is a Biometal!?

???? (purple): CROSSCHECKING... DATA MATCH FOUND... SUBJECT IS MEGA MAN MODEL A.

Grey: What the heck are you guys!?

(The other two Megamerge.)

???? (green): You, the Chosen One for Model A? What a disappointment! I am
Aeolus, the Wind Mega Man, Model H.

Siarnaq: CODEMAME: SIARNAQ. SHADOW MEGA MAN, MODEL P.

Model A: Model H, Model P... Are these the other Mega Men Prometheus was talking
about!?

Siarnaq: OPERATIONAL TIME LIMIT EXCEEDED. RETRIEVE MODEL W.

Grey: Wait! You think you can just run away!?

Aeolus: Us? Run away? Don't be stupid! We're letting you go... for now.

Siarnaq: PRESENT PRIMARY OBJECTIVE IS DEVELOPMENT AND RETRIEVAL OF BIOMETAL
MODEL W. ENGAGING MEGA MAN MODEL A IN COMBAT DOES NOT FALL WITHIN STRATEGIC
OPERATIONAL PARAMETERS.

Model A: What? So, you're just going to ignore us, huh!?

Aeolus: You understand correctly. We can end you at any time. You would do well
to hone your skills by the next time we meet.

(Model W, Aeolus, and Siarnaq teleport away.)

Albert: Finally, we were able to reach you. Are you OK? We've verified that the
security system has indeed been disarmed. Now you should be able to continue.

(Grey finds a Transerver and reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 6 - Arctic Ice Floe
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Grey heads into the Arctic Ice Floe.)

Mikhail: Can you hear me? It's me, Mikhail. It looks like you've stepped into
some rough terrain. You should be able to cut a path through the chunks of ice,
but the areas that allow access to the crash site are limited. Mega Man, you
must find a way to break through.

(Grey heads outside onto a platform of ice. Two people, one in red and one in
blue, teleport in.)

???? (red): Prometheus said he found someone interesting. I came to see who it
was. Thetis, he's nothing more than a kid, like you.

???? (blue): Hey, you're not that much older than me.

Grey: W-What is it with you people!?

(The other two Megamerge.)

???? (blue): Didn't Prometheus tell you that you'd meet other Mega Men? My name
is Thetis, the Ice Mega Man... Chosen One for Model L.

Atlas: I'm Atlas, the Flame Mega Man... Chosen One for Model F. Don't tell me
you don't know about the Game of Destiny, in which the winner becomes the king
of the world?

Model A: King of the world? This just gets bigger and bigger!

Grey: Look, I don't care about that. All I know is that if I beat them, I get to
find out who I am and where I came from.

Thetis: Sorry, I'm not in the mood to fight you right now. We've got other
things to do.

Atlas: I've got no time for some kid who became a Mega Man by accident. You look
like you could use a nice cold dip.

(Atlas breaks the ice. She and Thetis teleport away as the ice breaks, sending
Grey into the water. A Maverick appears.)

????: *Ha ha ha* Welcome to my sub-zero world where even time freezes! You've
got some nerve calling yourself a Mega Man, Defective! I, Chronoforce, will take
that Biometal off your hands!

(The two fight. Grey defeats Chronoforce.)

Chronoforce: ...You are nothing more than a pawn in the palm... of HIS hand.
...All you can hope to do is just flail about in the little time you have left!
*cackle*

(He explodes. Grey absorbs Chronoforce's DNA.)

Grey: Who is this HE, HIS, HIM guy everyone keeps talking about?

Model A: I bet he's the one calling the shots behind those other Mega Men. Game
of Destiny... King of the world... This is all getting complicated...

(Grey finds a transerver and reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 7 - The Raider Airship
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Grey enters the oil fields where the Raider airship had crashed.)

Security: DUE TO AN AIRSHIP CRASH IN THIS AREA, SAFETY LOCKS ARE IN OPERATION.
LOCKS CAN BE DISENGAGED BY DEACTIVATING THE 3 ELEMENTAL SWITCHES. TO DEACTIVATE,
EXPLOIT THE VULNERABLE ATTRIBUTES OF EACH ELEMENTAL SWITCH. ELECTRICITY IS
EFFECTIVE AGAINST FIRE, ICE AGAINST ELECTRICITY, and FIRE AGAINST ICE.

(Grey destroys the three switches.)

Security: ELEMENTAL SWITCHES DEACTIVATED. SAFETY LOCKS DISENGAGED.

(Grey continues until he finds a Raider named Dan collapsed on the ground.)

Grey: Hey, are you OK!?

Dan: Ugh... Ug... Help me... Our airship is under attack by something nasty...
It intends to massacre us all!

Grey: W-What?

Thomas: This is Master Thomas. It seems you've arrived at the crash site. That
entire area is an underground resource mining facility. If that airship
explodes, it will trigger the entire facility to detonate.

Model A: He means we're going to be blown away! C'mon, let's get outta here!

Grey: ...The airship is this way, right?

Model A: I don't get it. Those guys are all Raiders. Why do you wanna help them,
of all people!?

Grey: The bounty Hunters didn't know me, but they helped me. I want to do the
same for someone else. I shouldn't need a reason to save lives!

Model A: OK, OK, if you feel that strongly about it... You want me to go with
you right? Well let's go, Grey!

Thomas: If the airship is destroyed, you won't be able to recover any of its
parts. Anyway, you have to prevent the worst from happening. Hurry, Grey.

(Grey heads into the Raider airship and finds a fallen Raider named Tom.)

Tom: Are you here to help us? Some of us weren't able to get out in time.
They're still trapped in that room. There's something funny going on with the
power. Some of the doors won't open... Please... All of my friends are in that
room. Please get them out.

(Grey turns the power back on and finds a Raider named Daniel.)

Daniel: W-Who are you? Are you going to hurt me? Please... No...

(Daniel escapes. Grey finds a Raider named Eric.)

Eric: Ohhh! Finally, it opened! Thank you!

(Eric escapes. Grey finds a Raider named Adam cornered by Mavericks. He destroys
the Mavericks.)

Adam: I dunno who you are, but thank you for helping me.

(Adam escapes. Grey continues until he sees Atlas standing next to a hole.)

Atlas: So, those Raiders escaped through here. Every last one of you will become
nourishment for Model W!

(She jumps into the hole. Grey follows.)

Grey: Wait!

Atlas: So you managed to stay alive, Mega Man Model A. Don't tell me you're here
to help the Raiders? They're not even your allies.

Grey: I won't just stand by while innocent people are being hurt!

Atlas: You're not innocent, just ignorant. The history of the world, the history
of the war... And now, the strongest of those who evolved as a product of war
remain. A newly crowned king of Mega Men will soon spawn a new evolution. Those
who die ignorant are simply unable to keep pace with progress.

Model A: So you feed them to Model W? I'd say that's pretty barbaric progress.

Atlas: What would you know!? You can't even comprehend your own power. If I'm
the one that's wrong, try and beat me!

(Atlas megamerges. The two fight. Grey defeats Atlas.)

Atlas: Even if you are a Defective, there's no changing the fact that you are
still one of HIS creations! Very well, I yield to you. If you have the
determination to fight, one day you will know who you really are, but regret...
that you didn't die ignorant...!

(She teleports away. Grey absorbs Model F's DNA. Grey reels in pain.)

Grey: Aghh! Aaaaarrrr! What's happening!? Model A! Aiegh!

????: EXTRACTING FROM CODE AW15 TO CE70. EXPANDING REPORT DATA.
......Congratulations. The Model A which I created is protected by a cipher that
is broken only in battle. You, who broke the first cipher, are worthy to know
its truth and power. Through my research of the lost technology, I have created
a key to unlock the door to a new evolution. Biometal Model W... He who holds
it, will hold the power to rule the world. But it will take much time before
people will finally appreciate my work. Sacrifices are necessary to awaken Model
W. Model Ws which I have hidden throughout the world are waiting to be awakened.
Waiting for when the one who understands my work appears, to receive the power.

Grey: *gulp* Model A... What the heck was that...?

Model A: Was that the data recorded on me that those Sage guys were talking
about? The data on the one who made Model W... and me?

Grey: Are you OK Model A? We need to help the others. I think they ran this way.

(Grey continues and finds two Raiders hiding behind a wall.)

Wolff: What!? Whoind'heck are you! This shield is made of ceratanium! Your
attacks are completely useless against it. So, why don't you save yourself the
trouble! Go home!

(He laughs.)

Model A: ...All this talk is starting to get really old. Yo, morph into that
Atlas lady, and let's hit 'em hard with a Charge Attack! Say goodbye to that
precious shield of yours!

(Grey morphs and destroys the shield. Wolff stops laughing and cowers.)

Wolff: Waaaagh! P-Please d-don't hurt me!

Model A: I thought so... just a buncha wusses! Morph back, and let's set the
record straight...

(Afterwards, Wolff and Grey are standing at the entrance to the Raider airship.)

Wolff: You saved our lives. Thanks a lot, Grey!

Grey: I'd like to use your airship for parts to repair our train.

Wolff: Aah, it's already been taken care of. I just sent some of our guys to
Hunter's Camp to do the repairs. We were all impressed with your strength and
courage. We're going to clean up our act and work with you as honest to goodness
bounty Hunters.

Model A: *chuckle* It looks like you have a follower. It's not a bad feeling to
be appreciated.

Wolff: The repairs should almost be finished. Go back to the camp and have a
look. I hope you find out something at Legion!

(Grey reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 8 - Attack on Legion HQ
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Grey uses the train to go to a train station connected to Legion HQ. Grey
reaches the city near Legion HQ, and hears an explosion.)

Grey: D-Did you hear that!? What was that loud noise?

Model A: There's a shootout somewhere. I wonder if Mavericks got the jump on us.
I can't get through to the Sage Trinity. This doesn't look good.

Grey: Legion Headquarters is this way! Let's hurry!

(Grey enters a room, and Siarnaq teleports in.)

Siarnaq: TARGET ACQUIRED. INITIATE INFORMATION ANALYSIS. COMMENCE PLANNED COMBAT
PROCEDURE? INPUT RESPONSE...

Model A: Aw, man, this guy's the weirdest of 'em all.

Siarnaq: INVALID INPUT. INPUT RESPONSE.

Grey: Well, if this is the only way for me to find out who I really am...

Siarnaq: RESPONSE ACCEPTED... COMMENCE COMBAT...!

(Siarnaq megamerges. The two fight. Grey defeats Siarnaq.)

Siarnaq: DAMAGE... CRITICAL! HAZARDOUS TO PROCEED WITH COMBAT ENGAGEMENT IN
PRESENT CONDITION... RETREATING!

(He teleports away. Grey absorbs Model P's DNA. He reels in pain again.)

Grey: Aaaaaaaaaah!

????: EXTRACTING FROM CODE CE71 TO FC60. EXPANDING REPORT DATA. ...You who have
broken the second cipher now stand at a fateful crossroads. If you continue to
read this data, there is no turning back. You too are part of this plan.
Biometal has the abillity to give its "Chosen One" superhuman powers and combine
to become a new lifeform. This combination results in a Megamerge, the
transformation into a Mega Man. I've decided to select a new Chosen One suitable
for Model W, the next step in evolution. Finding a suitable candidate in this
world is nearly impossible. But I can do it, because as one of the Legion's Sage
Trinity, I know everything about the world...

Grey: Model W was created by one of the Sage Trinity!?

Model A: That means that he and Prometheus are connected somehow behind the
scenes. And it means that we can't even trust the Sage Trinity. Yet you still
wanna go?

Grey: ...Come on, Model A! They're the only ones who know about us.

Model A: The data recorded on me is getting more and more outrageous.

(Grey reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 9 - Betrayal
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Grey heads inside Legion HQ.)

Mikhail: I can't stand Mavericks!

Thoms: It's hard to believe that they're cooperating.

Albert: They may be taking orders from a leader.

Mikhail: What do they want? To make enemies with every nation on the planet?

(Albert walks to the side.)

Albert: What? What if they're just fed up with the world?

Thomas: What?

(Model W begins circling around Albert.)

Albert: A new rule... For the evolution of the ultimate Mega Man...

(A second Model W hovers around Albert.)

Albert: And there's one scientist who wants to see that evolution through to its
end.

(Two more Model Ws circle Albert.)

Mikhail: What are you saying!? No... You didn't!

Albert: I have a proposal. A proposal to this world I've led for centuries. A
system to come up with fair solutions based on the doctrine of the Sage Trinity.
If you're opposed, then just try and stop me.

(Grey enters the room and notices Albert.)

Model A: Hey, isn't that Biometal!?

Albert: Two of the ciphers have been broken. I wonder, just how much information
has been compromised? I wanted to dispose of you sooner, but things didn't go
exactly as planned.

Grey: YOU are the one who's been trying to have us killed!?

Albert: Don't look so angry! Welcome to Legion. ...Defective.

(Anime cutscene.)

Grey: Master Alberrrt!

(Grey locks on with his homing shot and attacks Albert, but Albert deflects all
of it. The astray shots break the window. Albert beings to hover.)

Albert: We will meet again. You are, after all, made in my image.

(Albert floats away as Grey runs to the windows and stares in horror. Later,
Thomas and Grey are standing in the room. Anime cutscene end.)

Thomas: I see. I'll tell you everything we know. With these mechanical bodies,
we've been able to live for centuries. When Albert became one of the Sage
Trinity those centuries ago, he was already working on Model W. Also, I looked
you up in our database, Grey.

Grey: And what did you find out about me!?

Thomas: Well, there was no data on you... It appears that you never existed.

Grey: That's ridiculous! You're lying!

Thomas: I'm not sure what you are... But Albert said that you were made in his
image. I'm afraid that because you showed up, he had to speed up his plan. I'm
not exactly sure why, though.

Grey: I come all this way, go through all of that, almost get killed, and all
that you can tell me is that you don't know anything?

Model A: ...*sigh*

(Mikhail approaches them.)

Mikhail: Gentlemen, bad news. We have Mavericks showing up all over the world.
Albert has started hunting for food for his Model W.

Model A: He knows the jig is up! He's going for a Hail Mary! Let's go, Grey!

Grey: But... I...

Model A: C'mon, let's go make Albert tell us everything he knows. And yeah, we
can do heroic rescues along the way!

Grey: I can't... I don't know anything about myself or the world. How can I
stand up to Albert, who knows everything...

(Model A floats in front of Grey.)

Model A: But I know you! You're a tough-talking stubborn kid who helps people he
doesn't know without expecting anything in return. A kind, crazy fool!

Grey: ...!

Model A: Are you just gonna let people suffer? Some conscience you have! What
happened to "I shouldn't need a reason to save lives"?

Grey: You're right, there's still something I can do... Let's go Model A!

(Model A joins Grey again.)

Grey: Maybe we can't win, but we're the only ones who stand a chance of beating
Albert!

Thomas: Thank you, Grey. I'd like you to go on another mission. I want you to
stop Albert's plan and save our world. I've added new transport destinations to
the transerver. ...I'm counting on you.

(Grey reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 10 - The Highway
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Grey transports to the highway.)

Mikhail: There are people being chased by the Mavericks on that Highway ahead.
It looks like all the people trying to flee in their cars have caused a traffic
jam. The situation is gridlock. Drive back the Mavericks and buy time for the
people down there to escape.

(Grey eventually encounters some people trying to escape in cars.)

Raymond: Hey, move it! We're sitting ducks here!

Grey: Leave the Mavericks to me! When it's clear, I want you to go!

Raymond: I don't know who you are, but thank you! There are still cars stopped
back there! They need your help!

(Grey takes down an airplane attacking the cars. The cars speed away.)

Model A: It looks like the people made it through.

Grey: Let's keep going. We have to fight off the Mavericks.

(Grey continues until he encounters Thetis.)

Grey: Thetis!?

(Thetis tosses Model L into the air a couple of times.)

Thetis: I'm flattered. You remembered my name!

(He megamerges into Model L.)

Thetis: Come, there's something I want to show you.

(He jumps into the water and Grey follows. They see a Model W piece humming.)

Model A: Model W!? You attacked the Highway to feed that thing!?

Thetis: That's right. But what I want to show you is further down... At the
bottom of this dirty sea. The sea during the war was no place for living
creatures. After the war, the sea's beauty was restored. However, as humans
repopulated, the sea once again grew filthy. You see, humans have to desecrate
the Earth to live on it.

Grey: So you take innocent lives!? You kill humans just like yourself.

Thetis: Like me? No, me and the others are no ordinary humans, we are Mega Men!
And after I finish you off, I will be even more powerful. When I am the Mega Man
King, I will rid the Earth of self-serving humans!

(They fight. Grey defeats Thetis.)

Thetis: It's too bad... I thought you, at least, would understand what I'm
trying to accomplish! I won't give up. I shall awaken Model W and change this
world for the better!

(Model W and Thetis disappear. Grey absorbs Model L's DNA. He reels in pain.)

Grey: Aaaagh!

????: EXTRACTING FROM CODE FC61 TO UC79. EXPANDING REPORT DATA. In order to find
a Biomatch for Biometal Model W, first I created sibling Reploids. As well as
giving them a portion of Model W's power, I gave them 1 commandment. That was to
determine the most powerful Mega Man. A commandment to Biomatch each of my
Chosen Ones to a Biometal. And have them fight until only one of them was left.
The survivor of this contest will attain the power of Model W, and become the
ultimate Mega Man. Yes, the new King of the world, the Mega Man King.

Model A: We broke another cipher. Now I understand why Mega Men fight each
other. But where is the information about us? And what the heck are the two
Reploid siblings?

Grey: ...

Model A: Hey, can you hear me? What happened? Why the frown?

Grey: Huh? It's nothing...

Mikhail: It seems you got everyone out of there safely. Just what we'd expect
from a Chosen One.

Grey: (Thetis said that Mega Men fight to change the world. Is it OK that I'm
only fighting to learn about myself? Mega Man... The power wielded by a Chosen
One.)

(Grey reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 11 - The Floating Ruins
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Grey transports to the floating ruins. The ground shakes.)

Grey: W-What!? Aaaagh!

(The entire ruins rise up.)

Grey: What... happened!?

Model A: The ground is floating! What's going on?

Thomas: Are you alright? That area is experiencing a gravitational anomaly.
Also, powerful energy reactions have been discovered. In all likelihood they are
the cause of the gravitational anomaly. Proceed to investigate the energy
reactions.

(Grey continues until he finds a Model W, humming.)

Grey: What's a Model W doing here!?

Model A: Could this be the source of the gravitational anomaly!?

(Aeolus teleports in.)

Aeolus: Inescapable destiny... So, you came, Mega Man Model A. But I'll be
taking the Model W.

Grey: Aeolus! What are you doing collecting Model Ws!?

Aeolus: That's a silly question... You call yourself a Mega Man, yet you don't
even know the significance of Model W... You fear what you don't understand, and
eliminate what you fear... It's because of foolish people like you that there is
conflict.

Model A: I don't know what all of that ideological babble was about, but it
sounded a lot like a threat.

Aeolus: So it is. In the world I have in mind, there is no place for idiots like
you, Mega Man Model A! Your time's up fool!

(Aeolus megamerges. The two battle. Grey defeats Aeolus.)

Aeolus: ...A woeful miscalculation! To think that I could be bested by a
Defective! I'll never acknowledge one as ignorant as you, Mega Man! Your time's
up fool! I will right this world's wrongs!

(Model W and Aeolus teleport away. Grey absorbs Model H's DNA and then reels in
pain.)

Grey: Aaaaagh!

????: EXTRACTING FROM CODE UC80 TO AC195. EXPANDING REPORT DATA. The power of
Biometal isn't something to be had by just anyone. It's a power which should
only be obtained by a Chosen One, one with the ability to change the world. I
devised this cipher to lock away the power of the Biometal. A cipher that would
allow only the Chosen One to unleash its power. In other words, it's locked to
its Biomatch. All Reploids have come to Legion to have their life-cycle setting
checked. I made sure that every Reploid I inspected was infused with my DNA.
That is the key to the cipher, the proof of being the Chosen One. Yes, by
viewing this data, you now have within you my DNA.

Model A: Grey... What's wrong?

Grey: Am I a descendant of Albert?

Model A: I know it's not easy, but don't let it get to you. That's just some
label Albert made up. Try not to think about it.

Grey: Uh... yeah.

Model A: That Albert guy just used his position as one of the Sage Trinity to do
whatever he wanted.

Thomas: It's true that Albert knew more about technology than anyone. But we had
no idea that was the kind of man he was. We should have known better.

Grey: It's OK. I had a feeling something like this might happen... But it feels
like there is still some other secret to me and Model A.

Model A: And only Albert knows it.

Thomas: The gravity in the area should normalize momentarily. Head to the next
destination.

(Grey reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 12 - The Scrapyard
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Grey transports to the scrapyard.)

Model A: What is this place? There's junk everywhere.

Mikhail: That's a Scrapyard. There are mountains of discarded machines. Until
only recently they were buried in snow. Imagine that!

Grey: I don't see any snow.

Mikhail: The hear from the machines melted it all. Machines that were thrown
away simply because they were supposedly broken became Mavericks and started
working again.

Model A: Scrap that just starts working again!?

Mikhail: That's the reason I had you two come here. Whoever is controlling the
scrap should be here too. Take him down and scrap the Mavericks.

(Grey continues until he finds a Maverick.)

????: I see you pushed your way through all of those Mavericks to get a special
front row seat to watch me perform. That's pretty Mega of you, Mega Man Model A.
I'm Vulturon. I play the part of the prince who kisses Model Ws and wakes them
up!

Grey: Model Ws!? Are they in there?

Vulturon: Not so fast, that's where the VIP seats are. I'm afraid you can't go
in there. What do you say we start the show? I'll play the guitar, and you'll
sing the vocals. I'm looking forward to the finale as you scream your last
breath!

(They fight. Grey defeats Vulturon.)

Vulturon: What! This was supposed to be Mega's death concert, not mine!
Aaaaagggg!

(He explodes, leaving behind his DNA, which Grey absorbs. Grey continues until
he finds a humming Model W and Pandora.)

Pandora: I hear it... The discarded machines... the Mechaniloids... Their voices
of sadness... of pain... of anger... All food for Model W.

Grey: Pandora!

Pandora: Can you not hear it...? The cries of this world... of this planet...?

Grey: Of course I hear it! How could I not!? And you always seem to be at the
center of those screams.

Pandora: That's not so...

Grey: W-What?

Pandora: Those screams... are because of you and that Albert fellow... Even as
you awoke... destiny had already been set in motion.

Model A: What the heck are you talking about?

Pandora: The time will come... when you shall know everything. And you will be
driven to despair...

(She and Model W teleport away.)

Grey: I'll know everything? Driven to despair? What was that about?

Mikhail: Hmph... She took Model W with her. She's definitely odd. Good work. The
Mavericks in that area seem to be settling down. Mission accomplished. Don't
forget to submit a report.

(Grey reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 13 - The Control Center
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Grey heads to the Control Center.)

Grey: *pant* This heat is unbearable! What the heck is going on?

Thomas: That building is the Control Center for several energy furnaces in the
surrounding city. But the Mavericks have caused an uncontrollable thermal
runaway.

Model A: If we don't do something, the energy furnaces will explode. These guys
don't mess around, do they!?

Thomas: We don't know how long those furnaces have until they blow. Do something
to take charge of that Control Center.

(Grey continues until he finds Prometheus with a Model W.)

Prometheus: It's been a while. But I see you're surviving the Game of Destiny.
Well? Have you found anything out about yourself?

Grey: Shut up! What do you know!?

Prometheus: Don't bark at me, scum! I've only come to retrieve this Model W. No
rush, I'll cut you to ribbons soon enough. Look forward to it!

(He and Model W teleport away.)

Model A: Bleeeh! He makes me sick!

(A bee Maverick flies down.)

????: My, my! Did little Prometheus leave already? He's so impatient. In a
moment the energy furnaces will explode and a beautiful fire flower will bloom,
filled with sweet nectar. The nectar of terror.

Grey: So you're behind the thermal runaway!

????: That's right, boy... Oh, I mean Mega Man Model A! I'm Queenbee. I'll give
you a taste of my special nectar... Despair with a touch of bitterness.

(The two fight. Grey defeats Queenbee.)

Queenbee: *Aagh* What!? You refuse my precious gift of despair!? Aaaaargh!

(She explodes, leaving behind her DNA, which Grey absorbs. Grey continues until
he finds a computer.)

Thomas: I presume that's the main computer which controls the energy furnaces.
This can't be! The cooling function can't keep pace with the thermal runaway!
Rip out the core module and shut down the main computer by force.

Grey: How are we going to take out the core module? It's huge!

Model A: Hey, change into Queenbee! She was carrying some kind of big container
before, right? Shouldn't we be able to raise the core module up the way she did?

(Grey pulls up the computer.)

Thomas: It seems to have switched over to its subsystem somehow, and the thermal
runaway has stopped. The auto-recovery system should kick in momentarily. Thank
you for your help.

(Grey reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 14 - Model ZX
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(After Grey reports the last mission, Thomas contacts him.)

Thomas: This is Thomas. Albert seems to be retrieving Model Ws from everywhere.
Actually, we've just gotten confirmation of Model W activity in the Quarry at
Hunter's Camp. Hunters have Mavericks pinned down, but they can't move in any
further because of the rough terrain. It's up to you to get into the Quarry,
then find and retrieve the Model W. Our reports tell us that there's a large
airship closing in on the Quarry. Albert may already be aware of what's going
on, so be careful.

(Grey heads into the area and continues until he finds a bunch of wreckage.)

Model A: Who could have done all this? Another Mega Man? But Albert's guys
shouldn't have to fight Mavericks...

Grey: Whoever did this must be after the Model W. We better hurry.

(Grey continues until he finds a girl near a piece of Model W.)

Grey: Who are you!?

???? (girl): What's this kid doing here?

(A blue Biometal floats in front of her.)

???? (blue): Careful, Aile! I sense Biometal on him.

(A red Biometal floats next to her as well.)

???? (red): I've never sensed anything like this before. What is he?

Model A: Two Biometals!? Is she a Mega Man!?

Grey: *gulp* Step away from that Model W!

Aile: What do you want with this Model W?

Grey: I'm here to retrieve it! I won't hand it over to you!

Aile: I figured as much. Well in that case... You leave me no choice.

(Anime cutscene. Aile holds up the blue and red Biometal.)

Aile: Model X! Model Z! Here we go! Double Megamerge!

Model X & Z: Biolink Established! M.E.G.A. System Online!

(Aile megamerges into Model ZX. Anime cutscene end.)

Aile: Sorry, but I can't let you have the Model W. Especially if you're a Mega
Man!

(The two fight. Grey defeats Aile and copies Model ZX's DNA. He reels in pain.)

Grey: Aaaaagh!

(Aile reels in pain as well.)

Aile: Gyaaagh! What's... this!?

Model Z: He's resonating...! Could it be because of his Biometal?

Model X: Be careful, Aile! There's some kind of data pouring out from his
Biometal!

????: EXTRACTING FROM CODE AC196 TO TC2343. EXPANDING REPORT DATA. This is the
last cipher. You, who knows all about the plan. You have earned the right to
receive the ultimate Biometal. Sleeping Model Ws everywhere feed on the fear of
humans, waiting for their day of awakening. And when all Model Ws have combined,
the ultimate Biometal will be born. Its name will be Ouroboros... The who holds
the Ouroboros will evolve beyond the mere fusion of man and machine. What I seek
is to become the ultimate Mega Man. My name is Master Albert. And I decide how
things are going to be. You, who will usher in a new way of life in a new
world... I hope that one day my research will pave the way to a new course of
evolution.

(Grey and Aile stand there, defused from the Biometals, who are hovering near
their respective Chosen Ones.)

Grey: Ouroboros and the ultimate Mega Man... That's Albert's plan!

Model A: Now I get it... The reason why we were created. Why you can Megamerge
with me...

Grey: Model A! Do you remember? Do you know about me?

Aile: Can someone explain it to me too? When I resonated with you just now, I
saw a lot of data. That man, Master Albert created Model W right? So who are
you?

Model A: That's kinda hard to explain...

(Model W breaks from the wires and falls under the ground. The five stare.)

Model X: Uh oh! Model W!

Model Z: It must've taken some damage in the fighting.

(Grey moves close to Model A.)

Grey: Tell me, Model A, who am I?

Model A: I'm sorry... I can't tell you now...

Grey: Model A!

Aile: Stop it! That's not fair to the Biometal. And this isn't the time for
that. While we're wasting time here, that Model W is making more Mavericks,
which is going to make it tough to get close.

Grey: I know. Sorry Model A... Let's keep moving.

Aile: You're a good kid.

Grey: Hey! Don't make fun of me.

(Grey megamerges with Model A and heads for the exit.)

Aile: Aren't you going to try and stop me?

Grey: That's not why I'm here.

(He goes through and continues through the area until he finds Model W with the
wreckage of the spider he had fought earlier. Model W merges with and revives
the spider.)

Model A: Hey, what are we supposed to do? They can't expect us to take this
thing back!

Grey: We have no choice. We have to destroy it!

(Grey defeats the spider, but it isn't destroyed.)

Grey: Dang! How is this thing still able to move!? Is this the strength of Model
W!?

(Aile jumps down and destroys the spider with her saber.)

Grey: Why did you help me? Didn't you come here to kill me?

Aile: That isn't why I came here either. My objective has always been to destroy
Model W and stop the Game of Destiny, where Mega Men fight each other. What is
your name?

Grey: Huh?

Aile: You're not my enemy... I forgot to ask who you are.

(Grey demerges with Model A, who hovers next to him.)

Grey: I'm Grey and this is Model A. And what the heck is your story?

Aile: Is that any way to talk to a girl you just met?

(She demerges with Model X and Model Z, who hover next to her.)

Aile: My name is Aile. This blue Biometal is Model X. And this red one is Model
Z. It's not mine, it's a memento from someone who was very dear to me. Anyway
let's go back to the camp. We can talk on the way.

(Afterwards, Aile and Grey are standing in the Hunters' Camp.)

Aile: So let me get this straight. Master Albert, Prometheus, Pandora and 4 Mega
Men. Hm, so that's what happened to the Biometals that were stolen from the lab.

Model X: Unfortunately those Biometals probably have the consciousness of their
four Chosen Ones. Biometals gave us strength when we fought the Model W.

Model Z: We followed the stolen Biometals here.

Aile: That's when we found the Model W and you.

Grey: Why are you dudes fighting Model W?

Aile: "You dudes"? *sigh* Anyway, just the same as you. Before I knew it I was
just caught up in it. I lost a lot of close people in the battles with Mavericks
and Model Ws...

Grey: Revenge...

Aile: No... I just don't want anymore people to suffer like I have. So I decided
to destroy all Model Ws in order to put an end to the Game of Destiny. I decided
to become a Mega Man because I wanted to help people. You're fighting because
you're trying to find out who you are, but don't forget. Only you can decide
your own destiny. No matter what anyone says you are. The power you contain
within is the key to creating your future. That's what a special person said to
me.

Grey: My destiny... My future.

Aile: Oh by the way, here. I'll give you this.

(She walks over to him and gives him a Green Card Key.)

Aile: There was Pseudoroid activity in the area that key opens. I was going to
check it out myself, but I think it would be better if you held on to the key.
I'm going to join the others and go after the Biometals. We'll probably meet
again, since... we're fighting the same enemy.

(She walks away.)

Model A: Grey... I...

Grey: I'm sorry about before. It doesn't matter about my past. I want to use my
power and fight for the people that helped me. I'm ready to listen to whatever
you have to say when you're ready to say it.

Thomas: Good work. It's unfortunate that we couldn't bring back the Model W in
one piece. But the destruction of a Model W should put a wrench in Albert's
plan. I'd like to use this opportunity to our advantage somehow, but
unfortunately, we don't have any leads. Use your new key and search areas you
haven't been to yet. Something may turn up. We're counting on you, Grey.

(Grey reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 15 - The Biolab
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Grey finds the Biolab and enters it.)

Grey: Ugh... It really stinks down here... This is no ordinary sewage! Is it
coming from inside?

Model A: Us Biometals don't really have a sense of smell... I'm kinda glad I'm
not you right now.

Grey: That's no fair... Anyway this smell is foul. Let's have a look inside.

(Grey continues until he sees some industrial sewage.)

Grey: The smell must have been coming from here. It's industrial sewage.

Model A: With this equipment, this is obviously not just a ruin. Let's go in and
find out what this place really is.

(Grey continues until he finds a huge Maverick with with sleeping Mechaniloids.)

Grey: A big Mechaniloid!? And there are more inside!

????: Are you surprised? These soldiers were all born here. They're to be used
one day by the Mega Man King!

Model A: Albert thought about all of this!?

Bifrost: My name is Bifrost... Guardian of the sleeping soldiers. When the new
world is born, they shall awaken and exterminate the old-world inhabitants. But
for now, Mega Man Model A, I shall exterminate you! I shall crush every last one
of your bones with my jaws!

(They fight. Grey defeats Bifrost.)

Bifrost: Am I the one being exterminated!? Is it you who shall bring about the
new world and not we!? It is you after all... UWAAAAA!

(He explodes, leaving behind his DNA, which Grey absorbs. Grey finds some
familiar blocks.)

Model A: Up ahead... I remember those... Those are the blocks we couldn't break
no matter how hard we tried! We might be able to use Bifrost's jaws to do the
trick.

(Grey finds a transerver and reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 16 - Waterfall Ruins
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Grey enters the Waterfall Ruins.)

Mikhail: It's me, Mikhail. About the information we found on you in the Legion's
database... It appears that someone hacked in from the outside and erased it.

Model A: It had to be Albert.

Mikhail: We did all we could to pinpoint the location of the hacker, but the
network response is slow in the area you are in. Can you see a large computer
facility in that area?

Grey: Computer facility? No, I can't see anything from here.

Mikhail: I'm afraid we can't do anything else. Now, it's up to you. If you can
find the computer used to do the hacking, there may still be some data on it.
The missing data on you is one of the only clues there are left to track down
Albert.

Grey: The computer used to hack my data could be around here...? OK. I'll look
for it.

(Grey continues until two Maverick twins appear.)

???? (right): Wait right there! I don't care who you are. But I can't allow you
to continue any further!

???? (left): *grunt*!

Grey: A Pseudoroid! Are you in league with Albert?

???? (right): That's right! Call me Argoyle!

???? (left): *grunt*!

Argoyle: And he's my other half, Ugoyle! We will defend this area with our
lives!

Model A: I see. So, the computer used to do the hacking is in there!

Argoyle: Do you think you can break through our defenses?

Ugoyle: *grunt*!

Argoyle: Then come on, Mega Man Model A! Let me show you the way... The way to
the netherworld!

Ugoyle: End of the line for you!

(The three battle. Grey defeats Argoyle and Ugoyle.)

Argoyle: You!... Me!... We're broken!

Ugoyle: ...No!

Argoyle: You managed to win this battle, but you won't survive the war!

Ugoyle: Aaaaaaaggh!

(They explode, leaving behind Argoyle's DNA, which Grey absorbs.)

Model A: To leave Pseudoroids standing guard... Albert must really not want
anyone to see what's in there.

Grey: I'm sure that computer is this way! Let's go!

(Grey notices a Datadisk covered in dirt.)

Model A: Grey! Take a good look over there! There's something on the other side
of that wall.

(Grey retrieves the Datadisk and continues until he hears an explosion.)

Model A: W-Was that the sound of an explosion just now!?

Grey: No way!

(He runs through the door and finds Prometheus and Pandora next to the destroyed
computer.)

Grey: The computer! Were you the ones that did it!?

Prometheus: That's right! We've entered the final stage of the plan... We don't
need to hack anymore. But we couldn't just let you go snooping around in there
looking for information about yourself either. And we can't let you, who beat 5
Mega Men just retire.

Grey: What!?

Pandora: The reason we've kept you alive is all part of the plan. Soon it will
all be over. The destiny of destruction.

Prometheus: *laugh* Albert, as well as his stupid game are about to be over! As
Albert meets his demise!

Grey: The end of Albert!? What do you mean!? What are you going to do!?

Prometheus: I'll tell you when it's all over... Perhaps as you are dying...
*evil laugh*

(He teleports away.)

Pandora: We'll meet again...

(She teleports away.)

Grey: W-Wait! Dang! What's happening!?

Mikhail: Wait, what? Those two weren't working for Albert? What about the
computer? Is there anything left of it?

(Grey examines the computer.)

Grey: Aw man...

(He finds a Data File A.)

Grey: That's it. There's nothing left...

Mikhail: Don't feel so bad. Even without data, you are very real and you exist
in this world. The proof is in the fact that they went to so much trouble to
keep you from seeing the data. Let's investigate the data we do have on our own.
Send it together with your mission report.

(Grey sends a mission report and the Data File A.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 17 - The Mysterious Lab
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Grey finds a transerver that leads to the Mysterious Lab and goes there to a
very familiar looking place.)

Grey: ...Where am I?

(He looks around.)

Grey: I remember this place. This is the building I first woke up in...

Model A: You were locked up here?

Thomas: If this is where you received your Mega Man preparation, there may be a
clue about Albert's plan. Would you have a look?

(Grey looks around to the next building.)

Grey: I don't think I've been in this buiding though...

Model A: OK, let's go check it out!

(Grey continues through the area until he finds a room with two capsules.)

Grey: This is just like the capsule I was in...

Model A: Look at that panel. There's a message.

(Grey examines the panel.)

????: DAN-001 "PROMETHEUS" TIME REMAINING BEFORE SHUTDOWN FOR RECALIBRATION
246924 SECONDS.

(Grey examines the second panel.)

????: DAN-002 "PANDORA" TIME REMAINING BEFORE SHUTDOWN FOR RECALIBRATION 246939
SECONDS.

Grey: These are Prometheus and Pandora's capsules! Those two were made here too?

Model A: Maybe they're what the data meant by "Reploid siblings." I bet the
first two Mega Men Albert made were Prometheus and Pandora.

Grey: ...!

Thomas: There's no doubt about it. These capsules are the chains that bound
them. So that they wouldn't go against Albert's plan.

Grey: Chains?

Thomas: The counter on the panel is probably Prometheus's life. It's set pretty
short. They're made so that they'll die if they don't go back into the capsules
for maintenance at regular intervals.

Model A: In order to stay maintained, they have to do what Albert says.

Thomas: It looks like this building goes further in. There may be something
left. Keep looking.

(Grey continues until he finds a Maverick.)

????: Hey, hey, that's as far as you go! Nobody gets past this point! I'm just
following Mr. Albert's orders.

Grey: So he's hiding something in here too! Well you're just gonna have to get
out of the way!

Hedgeshock: Hey, hey! Do you think you can just ignore me, Hedgeshock!? You've
got to face the penalty! A shocking penalty! Mr. Albert's orders are aboslute!

(They fight. Grey defeats Hedgeshock.)

Hedgeshock: Hey, hey! That kind of strength... is... cheating! It's just like...
Mr. Albert's strength! WAAAAH!

(She explodes, leaving behind her DNA, which Grey absorbs. Grey continues until
he finds another capsule.)

Grey: Is there only this one capsule?

Model A: But it's empty. There's something showing on this panel, though.

(Grey examines the panel.)

????: DAN-000 "PROTOTYPE" FINAL VERSION COMPLETE. START FINAL PHASE.

Grey: There were Mega Men being made even before Prometheus and Pandora? The
process is finished and the capsule is open...

Model A: Huh? There's a disk still in this drive!

(Grey gets the Data File B.)

Thomas: Very good, but all you managed to find is an empty capsule and some
incomplete data? There might be some Mega Men that we don't know about. We'll
analyze the data here and see what we can find. Send it with your mission
report.

(Grey goes to the transerver and submits a mission report and the Data File B.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 18 - The Initialization Key
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Thomas contacts Grey once he finishes the last mission.)

Thomas: It's Thomas. We've succeeded in analyzing a file in the data you found.
This is the initialization key for a special transerver. It contains transport
coordinate data of some kind. We were able to completely recover it using the
data you sent.

(Grey gets a Initialization Key.)

Thomas: Do you remember ever seeing a transerver that hadn't been initialized?

Grey: A transerver that hadn't been initialized?

Thomas: If you find it, use that key. It's the data that had been split in two
and guarded so vigilantly. Albert is presumably at the receiving end of that
transerver.

Grey: So I can initialize the transerver with this key? OK, I'll give it a try.

(Grey goes to the broken transerver in Biolab3.)

Grey: That's strange... This transerver isn't on.

Transerver: CURRENTLY IN STANDBY MODE... INSERT INITIALIZATION KEY TO RESUME...

Model A: Is this the transerver that Thomas was talking about?

Grey: Yeah, I'll use the initialization key.

(Grey uses it.)

Transerver: ... ... ... ... ... INITIALIZATION KEY VERIFIED. COORDINATE DATA
VERIFIED. SWITCHING TO ACTIVE MODE.

(The transerver activates.)

Model A: Yesss! It worked! I suspect Albert's hideout will be at that transerver
destination. Let's make sure we do this right.

(Grey decides to transport.)

Model A: Let's go storm Albert's hideout!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 19 - Albert's Hideout
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Grey transports to the undersea volcano.)

Model A: Do you feel it, Grey?

Grey: Yeah, I sense something just up ahead. It must be Model W!

(Grey continues until he finds a room full of Model Ws.)

Grey: No... All of these are Model Ws!?

Albert: Hahaha... Are you surprised, Grey?

(Grey heads into the room and finds Master Albert.)

Albert: Do you have any idea how much time I've invested in this plan? Did you
think you could foil my plan by destroying one or two of my Model Ws? Not a
chance.

(Pandora and Prometheus teleport in, facing Albert.)

Prometheus: We'll see about that.

Grey: Prometheus! Pandora!

Prometheus: So this is where he's been keeping the recovered Model Ws. I never
thought you would have found this place for us.

Pandora: Thank you Mega Man Model A...

Prometheus: How many centuries has it been since we last met like this, Master
Albert! You look even more ridiculous in person than you do on that monitor!

Albert: What do you all think you're doing?

Prometheus: This is what we're doing!

(Prometheus attacks and kills Master Albert.)

Prometheus: HA HA HA HA HA! To be defeated by the very first Mega Man you ever
made! How fitting, for the scum that you are!

Model A: What the!? What's going on!?

Prometheus: You were being used by us all along. From the day we first awoke, we
were Mega Men destined to fight each other... To further Albert's insane plan to
create the ultimate Mega Man.

Pandora: So we decided... to take revenge on Albert.

Grey: Revenge!?

Prometheus: We found many Mega Men and brought them into this fight. We knew
that if we were successful, Albert would show up. And then you tracked him down,
allowing us to exact our revenge.

Model A: I didn't think this is how the game would end...

Prometheus: *laughter* What are you talking about... It's not over yet...! We're
still here. The garbage left behind by that scum!

Pandora: We can't get our old bodies back... We can't change our destiny... So
we'll hasten the destiny of destruction...

Prometheus: We will destroy all that Albert made. That is our revenge! So let's
have some fun, why don't we? And go out with a bang!

(The three battle. Grey defeats Prometheus and Pandora.)

Grey: That's enough! This fighting is senseless!

Prometheus: That's right... Even you can see that this fight is pointless!

Pandora: Mavericks terrorize humans, and in turn Model Ws absorb that anguish.
Albert used Legion as a front to go about selecting Chosen Ones. A world where
Mega Men are created to destroy each other all for Albert's satisfaction.

Prometheus: It was all a farce! Albert prepared everything in this world
according to his own plan. He said Mega Men are the natural evolution of Man!?
Don't make me laugh! What an epic sham! I'm going to demolish this whole
wretched world!

(Purple energy surrounds Prometheus and Pandora and begins to be sucked into the
Model Ws.)

Prometheus: DAAAAAAAAAAHH!

Pandora: AAAAAAAAAAHHH!

(The energy stops being sucked, and they collapse. Their DNA hovers over their
heads.)

Model A: Hey... could this be...!?

Grey: All of the Model Ws are awake!

(A red-haired man with resemblence to Albert teleports in. He absorbs the DNA of
Prometheus and Pandora.)

????: Prometheus... Pandora... Your centuries of anger... suffering... hate...
and insanity along with your battles against other Mega Men have given me the
data I need!

Grey: That voice... No way... Master Albert!

Model A: So who was it that Prometheus defeated...!?

Albert: That was a decoy. A dummy body that worked as one of the Sage Trinity in
my stead. I am DAN-000 the "Original"... This me is the genuine article, the
real Master Albert!

(The room shakes and the ceiling begins the crumble.)

Albert: Just as I planned! Soon all of the Model Ws will begin to merge! I will
become the ultimate Mega Man and the plan will be complete!

Model A: This place won't last long! We need to hurry and get out of here!

Grey: But Prometheus and Pandora...!

Model A: What are you saying!? We can't carry both of them! If you don't make
it, who's going to deal with Albert!?

Grey: Dang!

(Grey dashes away.)

Albert: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 20 - The Rise of Ouroboros
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Grey ends up at Hunters' Camp. He goes outside where Billy is.)

Billy: H-Hey! What's that!?

(The earth shakes. A giant snake Mechaniloid, Ouroboros, rises into the air.)

Model A: That's all of the Model Ws merged together... Ouroboros!

Grey: Albert must be inside! Say, is that airship still at Hunter's Camp!? Take
me to it!

Billy: ...There's not even one left. Mavericks destroyed them all.

Model A: There's nothing left we can do!

Aile: No, there is one thing!

(Aile walks up to them.)

Grey: Aile!

(He runs to her.)

Aile: We meet again. There's something I've been wanting to show you. But
remember... From here, there's no turning back! I'll be waiting for you here.
Call me when you're ready.

(Grey readies himself and talks to Aile.)

Aile: Things have gotten pretty hectic, haven't they? So that's the ultimate
Biometal... Ouroboros. All of the Mavericks that came out of that thing are
wreaking havoc. I managed to smash a few of them, but they just keep coming.

(Grey turns around.)

Grey: There aren't anymore airships left... What should we do!?

(Aile raises one arm into the air.)

Aile: Pull yourself together! Didn't I say there was something I wanted to show
you? You want to go and take back your destiny, don't you?

(Aile points to a giant airship in the sky.)

Grey: W-What's that...?

Aile: She belongs to me and my crew... She's the Guardian Base! There's only one
thing left that we can do... Use the Guardian Base to board Ouroboros. We must
take Albert down!

Billy: Hey! Wait!

(Billy and two other Hunters run up to them.)

Billy: You're going after the ringleader, right? Let us have a piece of the
action too!

Richard: What do you think the bounty might be on booty that big!? I'm getting
excited just thinking about it!

Grey: H-Hey! This isn't some kind of bounty mission...!

Thomas: Oh, yes it most certainly is... An official mission from Legion
Headquarters.

(Thomas walks up to them.)

Grey: Master Thomas!

Thomas: ...How brave you all are... You wouldn't be satisfied unless the mission
was official. Legion is having trouble supplying enough manpower to fight the
Mavericks. Grey... I'm putting you in charge.

Grey: Everybody...!

Aile: You want to find something worth protecting, right!? Let's go, follow me!

(Aile runs away, with Grey and the other Hunters following her.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 21 - Rematch
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Guardian HQ is flying towards towards Ouroboros.)

Aile: Once we grab a hold onto Ouroboros, expect Mavericks to take to us like
flies to you-know-what! It's up to all of you to defend the Guardian Base! We're
going home victorious, got it!?

(A crashing noise is heard. Aile and Grey, megamerged, as well as the three
Hunters run out of Guardian HQ, which had hit Ouroboros.)

Aile: Grey! You go ahead! I'll handle things here and catch up to you!

Grey: OK! Let's go... Model A!

Model A: OK!

(Grey continues until he finds a fancy looking room.)

Albert: I'd have never guessed that they would come after the Ouroboros in an
airship. The ways of those who can't keep up with progress are savage.

(Albert teleports in.)

Grey: Albert!

Albert: By the way, there are some people here to see you. Would you be so kind
as to make their acquaintance?

(He transforms into Buckfire.)

Buckfire: Traitor Model A... I will destroy you!

(He transforms into Chronoforce.)

Chronoforce: *Ha ha ha* I've been waiting to get my revenge.

(He transforms into Rospark.)

Rospark: It's so nice to see you again, boy!

(He transforms into Queenbee.)

Queenbee: Oh, allow me to give you a proper welcome!

(She transforms into Vulturon.)

Vulturon: Back for an encore, are you?

(He transforms into Argoyle and Ugoyle.)

Argoyle: We won't be beaten again.

(They transform into Hedgeshock.)

Hedgeshock: You've still got a shock coming!

(She transforms into Bifrost.)

Bifrost: For your disloyalty to the king, you shall perish!

(He transforms back into Albert.)

Model A: A-Trans...!?

Grey: Why do you have the same copy ability as Model A?

Albert: I told you that you were made in my image. But my real power is not in
my copy ability. The spirit of everything Model W eats lives on inside me. The
power to control all life. That is the power of the ultimate Mega Man. The real
A-Trans! They're waiting for you inside with their new bodies. Please go in and
play with them. If you can make your way to me, I'll tell you everything, on
how, even being incomplete, you can still use A-Trans, and who you really are.

(He teleports away. Grey encounters Vulturon.)

Vulturon: You'll be getting the VIP treatment this time... I have a special
requiem for you!

(They fight. Grey defeats Vulturon.)

Vulturon: I'm going to retire... Now it's up to you... Carry on with the show...
Give 'em a Mega performance...

(He explodes. Grey encounters Rospark.)

Rospark: I'm so happy to see you again, boy! Show me your beautiful, torn soul!

(They fight. Grey defeats Rospark.)

Rospark: Oh... Why... do you refuse...!? Oh... A world with no evolution... no
light!

(He explodes. Grey encounters Chronoforce.)

Chronoforce: *Ha ha ha* Shall we being our time of bliss together? I'm going to
take my time manhandling you!

(They fight. Grey defeats Chronoforce.)

Chronoforce: You can't stop the flow of time! Just let yourself be swallowed by
the tidal wave of a new era...!

(He explodes. Grey encounters Buckfire.)

Buckfire: *snort* *wheeze*!! New king born! New world be born soon! You not
needed!

(They fight. Grey defeats Buckfire.)

Buckfire: You... broke... law...! Go... and receive... King's... punishment!

(He explodes. Grey encounters Argoyle and Ugoyle.)

Argoyle: Only those who are loyal to the new king may pass.

Ugoyle: *grunt*

Argoyle: There's only one way you're getting through... That's as a sacrifice to
the king!

Ugoyle: Meet your end!

(They fight. Grey defeats Argoyle and Ugoyle.)

Argoyle: Very well... you may pass... We throw ourselves before your feet...!

Ugoyle: Graaah!

(They explode. Grey encounters Hedgeshock.)

Hedgeshock: It's my turn! It's my turn! Here I go! Here I go! I'm going to
punish you good!

(They fight. Grey defeats Hedgeshock.)

Hedgeshock: It's all over! It's all over! Either way... Mr. Albert will get you
in the end!

(She explodes. Grey encounters Bifrost.)

Bifrost: When it comes down to it, you're nothing but a small fish in a big
pond. So just make it easy on yourself and let me end it for you quick and easy!

(They fight. Grey defeats Bifrost.)

Bifrost: Born in the shadow of the king, you can never make a world of light!

(He explodes. Grey encounters Queenbee.)

Queenbee: There's going to be a great party tonight... You should celebrate with
us. A new king has been crowned. It's definitely going to be a night to
remember!

(They fight. Grey defeats Queenbee.)

Queenbee: Are we reduced to colluding with the evolutionarily inferior...? Hmph!

(She explodes.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 22 - The Final Battle
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Grey continues until Aeolus teleports in.)

Aeolus: You made a foolish choice... You should have have stayed away.

(Thetis teleports in.)

Thetis: We've got some unfinished business to take care of! I'm not just going
to let you waltz out of here!

(Atlas teleports in.)

Atlas: This is as far as you go!

(Siarnaq teleports in.)

Siarnaq: TACTICAL ADVANTAGE, FOUR TO ONE... COMMENCE COMPLETE DESTRUCTION OF
TARGET!

Grey: Listen...! Albert has been using all of you! He was planning to become
king all along! So why do you still insist on fighting!?

Aeolus: A mere trifling technicality... The winner out of all of us need only to
defeat Albert to become king. Those are the rules that Albert himself laid down.

Grey: Oh... You idiots!

(Aile jumps next to Grey and charges up.)

Aile: I'll take over from here, Grey! You go on ahead!

(She shoots at Aeolus, who dodges by flying into the air. As Aeolus jumps into
the air, Grey dashes away underneath him.)

Aeolus: Why, you...!

Aile: You have something I want. I need you to hand over all of your Biometals!

(Grey continues past a flurry of flowers and finds Albert sitting on a throne.)

Albert: I thought you might come right about now... Or should I say I needed you
to come. In the end, you've proven that my plan was perfect.

Grey: What do you mean...?

Albert: What? Model A, you haven't told him yet? You should remember everything
by now.

Model A: H-Hey! Don't listen to him, Grey! Waste him!

(Albert stands up.)

Albert: *laugh* How cruel you are... Grey, I'll tell you the truth. You are my
successor! I made you in my image to be like a son. If anything were to happen
to me, this throne would be yours! The ultimate Mega Man I created, that spare
body... That was your identity, Grey!

Grey: Me...!? A spare ultimate Mega Man!?

Albert: You see, I created Model A to tell you, the Chosen One, about the
plan... A backup system that contains my plan and my knowledge. Model A... In
other words, Model Albert.

Model A: I hate that name!

Albert: Don't say that. Soon that name and what it stands for will be gone.

(The throne and Albert morph into a giant snake creature.)

Albert: Now that my plan is finished, you are no longer of use to me... There
only need be one ultimate Mega Man... Me!

(They fight. Grey defeats Albert. The giant snake explodes, leaving behind
Albert.)

Albert: I wanted to know what it meant to be the ultimate... To be at
evolution's extreme... as one of the Sage Trinity, but above all as a scientist.
At evolution's extreme... there is emptiness and misery. Man will eventually
begin to fight again. For peace... for righteousness... Man will continue to
find ways to justify fighting. I've come to understand that nothing can come of
this world... but an empty, miserable future...

Grey: So, you just decided to make yourself Ruler...!?

Albert: Ruler? No, no, no... Talk about a life of emptiness... I am trying to
create a new world. I want to bring new life into the world and protect its
future.

Grey: Don't make me laugh! So now you think you're a god or something!?

(Anime cutscene.)

Albert: I don't THINK I'm a god... I AM a god!

(Albert pulls off his cloak, revealing a shadowy figure, and rises into the air.
The blue sky breaks into yellowness, and he transforms into his second form.
Anime cutscene end.)

Albert: The world that you live in itself is defective. Before a new world can
be made, this world must be reset. That's where the ultimate power of Model W
comes in. I have already decided the fate of the world as its god. The destiny
of destruction cannot be changed!

Grey: Even if you did make this world, we make our own destiny! I'm going to
bring you down and take back my destiny!

Albert: There it is... that empty misery... It disgusts me! That's why I made
Mega Men, to evolve! You, who couldn't become a god... You're not even a Mega
Man, you're a mere mortal!

(They fight. Grey defeats Albert.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 23 - Your Own Destiny
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Grey: Yeah, you're right, I am Defective. I'm just a person named Grey. You
couldn't even change the destiny of a regular boy like me. This is the destiny
that I've chosen... To live together with the people of this world!

Albert: Is that what the "other me" would have said...? Goodbye, ultimate
Defective! You can have your gentle peace... and leisurely rot in it!

(He explodes. The ground shakes.)

Model A: We're in trouble! This flying fortress is going down!

Grey: *pant*... *pant*... This is the end... I'm... getting... tired... Let's
hurry... back to... the... oth... ers...

(Model A defuses with Grey as Grey collapses.)

Model A: Hey... Hey! Grey! Get a hold of yourself! Grey!

(Meanwhile, Aile is still facing the four other Mega Men.)

Model X: Aile! It's too dangerous here! We have to go help Grey!

Aile: I know... but four against one isn't gonna be easy...!

(Model Z demerges and hovers in front of her, leaving her in Model X form.)

Model Z: ...Go ahead. I'll stay here and hold them back.

Aile: No... What are you talking about!? Don't be crazy, Model Z!

Model Z: No worries, today's not my day to meet my maker.

Model X: Come on, Aile!

Aile: I'm gonna hold you to your word!

(She dashes off.)

Aeolus: Such beautiful resolve... To throw away your life for a friend.

Model Z: Like I said, today ain't my day to die...

(The screen flashes, and the four Mega Men collapse.)

Model Z: I know more about Biometals than you.

Thetis: Agh... What!? My... body... feels... heavy... Model L...!

Atlas: Biometal!

Siarnaq: INCOMPREHENSIBLE...! INCOMPREHENSIBLE...!?

Model Z: Aile, take care of Grey!

(He flies up and the screen goes white. Ouroboros explodes. Later, Grey wakes up
in the same room in Hunters Camp from the beginning of the game.)

Grey: Aaaagh! Huh...? Where am I...?

(He stands up. Model A hovers in front of him.)

Model A: Grey! You're finally awake! I'm so glad! I was worried sick about you!

Grey: ...

Model A: W-What's wrong? Are you still hurt?

Grey: Model A? Worried about someone?

Model A: Y-You got a problem with that!? All I could do was watch and hope. Of
course I was worried.

Grey: *laugh* Thank you... Model A.

Model A: Y-Yeah, anyways, let's go outside! Aile's waiting for you!

(He joins Grey. Grey goes outside. Aile walks up to him.)

Aile: Are you OK? It was tough carrying you out of there.

Grey: Yeah, what happened to Ouroboros and Model W!?

Aile: Ouroboros went down without a trace. And there's no sign of Model W
anywhere. Its wreckage just sank in the ocean... Grey, it's all thanks to you!

Grey: No, it wasn't just me. It was everyone... This world belongs to everyone.
Aile, where're you gonna go now?

Aile: I want to go around the world in the Guardian Base... There are a lot of
things that need finding. What about you, Grey?

Grey: I haven't really given it much thought... But it is my destiny. I can
decide it, right? I want to go on a trip... How far I will go. What I will do. I
don't know yet. But I want to find out who I am.

(Model A floats next to Grey.)

Model A: Hey? So, what am I supposed do?

Aile: That's your destiny, right?

Model A: Oh! Uh, well then... Grey, I wanna go too. Take me with you!

Grey: OK, let's go together, Model A. Let's find our place in the world!

(The two run off as Aile waves goodbye.)

Aile: I hope we'll meet again!

Grey: We can meet anytime... Because this world belongs to us!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 24 - Extreme Mode Secret Ending
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thomas: ...To bring new life into the world, eh?

Mikhail: In the last mission report... Albert said some rather outrageous
things.

(Thomas and Mikhail are standing in the main room of Legion.)

Thomas: Mikhail... Do you think it presumptuous for us to give birth to new
life?

Mikhail: How absurd... Thomas, you couldn't possibly hold fast to such foolish
imaginings.

Thomas: There are laws that give equality to Humans and Reploids, correct? Don't
you remember? Those were passed because Albert and I agreed on them.

Mikhail: W-What are you saying?

(Thomas turns to Mikhail.)

Thomas: Give humans robotic bodies, and give Reploids mortality. So, where do
you think the Human bodies for the Reploids are? What do you think happened to
the original Reploid data from before we gave them mortality?

(Atlas, Siarnaq, Thetis, and Aeolus teleport in, Megamerged, beside Thomas.)

Mikhail: Thomas... You...!

Thomas: Albert was wrong, so I helped the Hunters. But I do think he was right
about one thing.

(The screen blacks out.)

Thomas: This world needs to be reset.

GREY'S STORY END
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


================================================================================
Ashe's Story
================================================================================

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 1 - A New Bounty
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(A Hunter is pacing in a room while another watches. Another Hunter enters.)

Nicol: ...Alright, you guys! Are you ready?

Lazarus: You still don't see that Raider airship yet? We're getting jumpy!

Nicol: Calm down. I'll go check on the mission now. The client is the
illustrious coalition government, Legion. Some top world leaders want the help
of us, a lowly hunter's guild. Do you know what Biometal is?

Red: Yeah, I heard that it's some kind of cursed stone that eats human spirits.

Lazarus: Ha! That's a good one! I bet Legion has a huge bounty on that.

Nicol: They say that some Biometal was found in some ruins. Found by those
illegal Hunters who don't belong to the guild. Our mission is to take back the
Biometal and bring it to Legion Headquarters.

Lazarus: So now that your appetites have be whet for booty, let's get this show
on the road! This time I'm gonna beat Ashe to the treasure! By the way, where is
she?

????: Uh... Ahem! Everyone! Calm down!

Nicol: That voice... Ashe, is that you? Where are you?

Ashe: It was getting kinda hot in there, so I went outside to cool off. We've
almost caught up to the Raider airship with the booty on it. I'm going to go
ahead and meet our booty face to face.

(Anime cutscene.)

Lazarus: Hey, Ashe! That's no fair. You always take all the action. When...

(Ashe doesn't pay attention; she looks deep in thought as she looks down.)

Ashe: Unngh. Hmm... Bingo. OK! Let's put everything we've got into it!

(She jumps off the ship, eventually landing on the Raider airship. Anime
cutscene end.)

Ashe: This is Ashe, I've successfully docked with the airship. Time to find out
where the booty is.

Nicol: Aw, man... Doesn't she know by now that the booty is always in the lead
airship? We always go in from the back and end up messing it all up!

Ashe: You guys be careful! OK, here we go! It's on!

(Ashe travels through the area, until she spots some Mavericks.)

Ashe: ...!? This is Ashe. Do you see any Mavericks on the radar?

Lazarus: It looks like there's a Mechaniloid ship among them! They could be
after the Biometal!

Ashe: Yeah, could be. Looks like the competition is high this time. Everyone, be
careful!

(Ashe defeats a giant Mechaniloid and lands on the lead ship.)

Ashe: I've landed! OK, I guess the booty is inside.

(She runs towards the door, only to notice a male Reploid standing there.)

????: It seems the Biometal has attracted a bug. Shoo, pest!

Ashe: Hey, what did you just call me!? You've got some nerve, talking to me like
that. You don't look like a Hunter... Are you after the Biometal?

????: Don't group me together with those money-hungry Hunters. You're not worthy
of the Biometal! Why don't you just go away?

Nicol: Sorry! We can't do that!

(The other Hunters appear behind Ashe.)

Lazarus: We finally made it. Let us join the party!

Red: Who the heck is this guy? A Hunter? A Maverick?

Ashe: Everybody be careful! He's not just anybody!

????: *sigh* How irritating! OK, prepare to draw your last breaths!

(He charges his saber.)

Prometheus: I am Prometheus, and I control the power of this Biometal... The
power of Mega Man!

(He attacks them.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 2 - Hunter's Camp
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Ashe wakes up in a room.)

Ashe: Uh... What is this place?

(She sits up. Nicol walks in.)

Nicol: Hey, you're awake. These Hunters... They helped you. They found you
unconscious outside. Luckily you were near Hunter's Camp.

(She stands up.)

Ashe: Um, what happened to our booty... the Biometal!?

Nicol: They managed to recover the whole container and bring it here! I told
them everything that happened with the airship and all that... They're planning
to take it by train to Legion Headquarters.

Ashe: What? Are they planning to collect on our bounty?

Nicol: Is that what you're worried about? You should consider yourself lucky
just to be alive. If you had that Biometal, that Prometheus guy might come
looking for you. Sorry, I don't care if the client is Legion, it ain't worth it!

Ashe: Oh, you're pathetic! I'll follow the train by myself if I have to! On top
of being called a bug, there's no way I'm going to give up that bounty!

Nicol: Oh, brother! There's just no changing you. If you want to go that bad, I
won't try to stop you. Before you go, why don't you save your data, just in
case? There's a transerver next door. Follow me!

(He leaves the room. Ashe follows him to the transerver.)

Nicol: Hm? It looks like you lost your Hunter's License. So you should go to the
transerver and have it reissued. If you don't have your Hunter's License, you
can't get in and out of the camp. Stand in front of the transerver and press up
on the +Control Pad. Once you use it, a license will be issued for you. Don't
forget to save often.

(Ashe receives the Hunter's License and saves her data.)

Ashe: Now I'm set!

Nicol: Those guys who took our Biometal are probably at the station getting the
train ready. Be sure to let me know how it goes, OK? I wanna tell everybody that
I went on an adventure with you.

Ashe: Leave it to me! People are gonna be talking about me all around the world.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 3 - Model A
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Ashe goes to the train station and sees Billy on the train with the container.)

Billy: So, you're Ashe. I heard about you and how you came to help us.

Ashe: This guy knows a lot about me. Well I guess that makes it easy. Now we
don't have to beat around the bush.

Billy: Haha, it's nice to have a girl around. We're all set to go. All aboard!

(Ashe jumps on the train and it begins to move.)

Billy: You're something else to want to carry on with this mission by yourself.
Why do you want to be a Hunter so bad?

Ashe: I was found by Hunters as a little girl, and they raised me. They said
that my town was attacked by Mavericks, and that I was the only survivor of that
attack. So nobody really knows who the real me is. I don't even know.

Billy: Sorry, maybe I shouldn't have asked that.

Ashe: It's OK. So, I decided to become the greatest Hunter in the world. I want
my story to go down in the history books. People will remember the name Ashe.
Soooo, I can't just let booty like Biometal pass me by!

????: She's just like me... She doesn't know where she comes from either.

Ashe: ...I heard something... Was that someone's voice...?

????: Hm? You can hear me?

(She looks around in shock.)

Ashe: Who said that just now?

(A group of Mavericks attack the train.)

Billy: Dang! Mavericks!

(He fires back, destroying one.)

Billy: They're going for the engine! You wait here!

(He runs off. Prometheus and a female Reploid appear.)

Ashe: ...Prometheus! I had a feeling you'd show up!

???? (female): This is it... The Biometal Model A container...

Prometheus: You again... You just don't give up do you?

???? (female): Who's that girl...?

Prometheus: Never mind her, Pandora. She's nothing. Let's take back the
Biometal.

Ashe: I can't let you do that. If you want it, you'll have to yank it from my
cold Hunter hands!

(Prometheus attacks her, injuring her and smashing the container.)

Prometheus: Just lay there and die quietly, scum.

Ashe: No way... Not like this...

????: Hey! Girl! If you don't want to die, do exactly what I tell you! We should
be able to Megamerge! I'll lend you my strength!

Ashe: W-Who are you?

Model A: I'm Biometal Model A! Now I want you to focus. OK, yell, "MEGAMERGE!"
as loud as you can!

(Anime cutscene. Ashe stands up.)

Ashe: MEGAMERGE!

Model A: Biolink Established! M.E.G.A. System Online!

(Model A and Ashe fuse together as Prometheus glares. Anime cutscene ends.)

Ashe: This feeling... This power... in my body... What is it? It's the Biometal,
making me stronger! ...Mega Man power!

Pandora: Mega Man... Model A!

Prometheus: I can't believe the Biometal chose you! I've got to hand it to you.
It looks like you've got what it takes to participate in this little game.

Pandora: Prometheus... Isn't that kid...?

Prometheus: Hmph, no matter! So, Ashe... You can keep the Model A, for now.
You've got a few more encounters with other Mega Men ahead of you. You must
defeat them in battle! If you somehow manage to survive until the end, then
you'll know who you really are... And perhaps all there is to know about the
world! So, let the game begin! HIS Game of Destiny!

(They teleport away.)

Ashe: Who I really am...? Game of Destiny...? What's all that about?

(The train shakes.)

Ashe: Oh, shoot! I have to help the others!

Model A: Wait a minute! Shouldn't we be getting out of here!?

Ashe: You were acting all big and bad back there, and now you want to run?
C'mon, I have to go help them!

Model A: OK, OK, I'll go! Anything is better than what those guys were going to
do to me! I'll help you... if you promise not to leave me. Deal?

Ashe: Of course, you're my booty! And you'll be going with me!

(Aile keeps going until she hears a noise.)

????: *snort* *wheeze*!!

(A deer Reploid bursts from inside the train.)

????: Model A! You broke rule! You make big mistake. The one you choose, no
good! Mega Man Chosen One, a girl!? No good you lend power!

Model A: Mistake? What're you yapping about? You don't know me!

Ashe: I think this guy is some kind of Maverick.

Buckfire: Me not Maverick! Me Pseudoroid. Me Buckfire! You get away from
Prometheus and Pandora, but not from I! Buckfire obey rule! Buckfire will pummel
you into ground!

(They fight. Ashe defeats Buckfire.)

Buckfire: You!... traitor... Our future... Our world...! Yeeeoooow!

(He explodes, leaving behind some DNA, which Ashe absorbs.)

Ashe: W-What just happened?

Model A: *chuckle* Do you want to see something cool? Touch the icon on the
bottom screen!

(Ashe does so and transforms into Buckfire.)

Model A: Touch the icon on the bottom screen again, and I can change back!

(Ashe changes back.)

Ashe: Man, that was something else! Could that be the reason why people are
after you? The power?

Model A: Beats me. I'm not even sure why I was created. This train is all out of
chug. So, let's head back to the camp and figure out another way to get to
Legion Headquarters.

Ashe: Yeah, now you're getting the right idea.

Model A: Well, it's that or you'll leave me here, right? I know there's a lot we
don't understand. Maybe it's meant to be that way. Anyway, let's try to watch
each other's backs.

Ashe: You bet! Now let's get those people taken care of.

Model A: What? Forget about those Hunters and let's get back to camp.

Ashe: I can't believe you would say something like that... I wonder if you'd go
down in history if I carved my name in you.

Model A: OK, OK, alright already! For crying out loud! Why did you have to be
the only around I could Megamerge with?


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 4 - The Sage Trinity
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Ashe and Billy are standing outside the train station in Hunter's camp.)

Billy: Thank you both. I owe you one. I think you should hold on to the
Biometal. It's probably safer that way. But, I need you to go to the transerver
and send a mission report. No mission report for the client, no bounty. Say,
we're trying to fix the train, but we need a few more parts. Tell 'em we won't
let 'em down, and to wait just a little longer.

(Billy walks into the train station. Ashe heads to the transerver and files a
mission report. Someone calls her.)

????: So, you're the one who submitted the mission report? I'm connecting your
transerver to Legion's via a secure channel.

???? (red): So, you're the Biometal's Chosen One... a Mega Man.

Ashe: Why do you get to ask all the questions? Do people at Legion always just
do whatever they want?

???? (yellow): Hahaha, we heard that you were a feisty one. It seems that the
rumors were true.

???? (blue): Mikhail, that's quite enough. Like she said, we are the ones being
rude here.

???? (red): We are called the Sage Trinity, and we are the supreme authority of
Legion. I'm Master Thomas.

Mikhail: And I'm Master Mikhail, nice to meet you, Mega Man.

Albert: And I am Master Albert. Nice to meet you, Ashe.

Ashe: Wow, it's kinda scary to know they know about me at Legion Headquarters.

Thomas: Word has it that you are quite a Hunter. We'd like you to go on another
mission.

Mikhail: We'd like you to bring the Biometal here to Legion Headquarters. It
would seem that Mavericks are after the Biometal as well. To reduce the risk of
being spotted, it's important to keep the number of men... er, women to a
minimum. Can we count on you?

(Ashe gets a Red Card Key.)

Albert: It seems the train bound for Legion Headquarters was damaged. That card
key should allow you access to a new area. There's a crashed Raider airship not
far from you. Find it and you should be able to get the parts you need to repair
the train.

Thomas: The Biometal holds technology and information that we don't fully
understand, like the M.E.G.A. mechanism which allows you to Megamerge and become
a Mega Man.

Mikhail: And not to mention centuries worth of lost history!

Albert: That's enough, Mikhail. ...We have a duty to study the Biometal so its
secrets are never misused. Ashe, can we count on you?

Ashe: OK. Now things are starting to get interesting. You're going to up the
bounty, of course?

Thomas: Aah... We'll consider it. First head to the airship crash site. And be
sure to heed the advice of your fellow Hunters.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 5 - The Tower of Verdure
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Ashe heads into the tower. Eventually, an alarm begins to ring.)

Security: ALERT! ALERT! SECURITY SYSTEM MALFUNCTION! ALERT CONDITION 3 IN
EFFECT! SEAL ALL EXITS!

(The exits to the room seal themselves.)

Model A: Y-Yo this isn't good!

(Ashe tries to go back out the entrance.)

Ashe: It's no good, the doors are locked!

Albert: This is Albert! Are you alright Ashe!? That old tower was built to
surveil the surrounding area. The security has been fortified against Mavericks,
but there seems to be a malfunction. There should be a computer at the top that
controls the security system. You must get there and disarm the system, Ashe.

(Ashe continues through the area until he finds a Maverick harrassing a Raider
named Gerry.)

????: For a Raider to make it this far is quite something... *evil laugh* I like
you! Accept my thorny embrace and allow your soul to be scattered like petals on
the breeze!

Gerry: *Aargh*! S-Stay away from me!

Ashe: Stooooooooop! I'm the one you want!

(The Maverick turns around in surprise. He notices Ashe.)

????: ...What, a girl? I'm busy. Just wait there! I'll get to you when I finish
ripping this man's soul out.

Gerry: Graaah!

(Gerry bolts through the other door.)

Ashe: So, you're the one who caused the security system to malfunction! What are
you doing here!?

????: You know, you're really starting to get on my nerves! Now look what you've
done! You've let my sacrifce get away! What am I doing here? OK, I'll tell
you...

(He transforms into Rospark.)

Rospark: Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Rospark. I sacrifice
those unfortunate enough to wander into this tower! You too can become a
sacrifice... For the strength of the new king... Biometal Model W!

(The two fight. Ashe defeats Rospark.)

Rospark: *mutter* The nerve! That strength... How!? I'm wilting... wilting!
Yeeeargh!

(He explodes. Ashe receives Rospark's DNA. Ashe finds Gerry in the next room.)

Gerry: *Ugh* You're one of the gang who attacked our airship, aren't you!? No...
Stop... Stay away...!

Model A: It's no use... He's in a total panic.

Ashe: Calm down! I'm here to help you!

Gerry: S-S-Stay back, get away!

(Gerry is hit with a strange purple energy.)

Gerry: Eeeagghhhh!

(Gerry collapses as the purple energy, a Cyber-Elf, flies up to a machine in the
background, which begins to hum. Gerry disappears.)

Ashe: What the... What just happened!?

(Two people, one in green and one in purple, teleport in.)

???? (green): Total and utter defeat... That man, unable to endure the terror,
fell victim to Model W.

Model A: Model W!? This humongous thing is a Biometal!?

???? (purple): BIOMETAL MODEL W... A BIOMETAL MADE FROM AN ANCIENT WEAPON.

Ashe: What the heck are you!?

(The other two Megamerge.)

???? (green): You, the Chosen One for Model A? What a disappointment! I am
Aeolus, the Wind Mega Man, Model H.

Siarnaq: CODEMAME: SIARNAQ. SHADOW MEGA MAN, MODEL P.

Model A: Model H, Model P... Are these the other Mega Men Prometheus was talking
about!?

Siarnaq: OPERATIONAL TIME LIMIT EXCEEDED. RETRIEVE MODEL W.

Ashe: Wait, I'm right here! Are you just gonna run away!?

Aeolus: Us? Run away? Don't be stupid! We're letting you live for now. Right
now, our first priority is developing Model W. We can take care of you anytime.

Siarnaq: OPERATIONAL TIME LIMIT EXCEEDED. REQUESTING YOU MOVE EXPEDITIOUSLY.
MODEL W AWARENESS LEVEL 2. ESTIMATED TIME TILL MAVERICK GENERATION, 5717
SECONDS.

Ashe: Hey! You mean that Model W caused all of those Mavericks!?

Aeolus: Your ignorance knows no bounds... The fact that you even need to ask
shows that you are not fit to be a Mega Man. You may live, for now. But the next
time we meet will be your last.

(Model W, Aeolus, and Siarnaq teleport away.)

Albert: Finally, we were able to reach you. Are you OK? We've verified that the
security system has indeed been disarmed. Now, you should be able to continue.

(Ashe finds a Transerver and reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 6 - Arctic Ice Floe
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Ashe heads into the Arctic Ice Floe.)

Mikhail: Can you hear me? It's me, Mikhail. It looks like you've stepped into
some rough terrain. You should be able to cut a path through the chunks of ice,
but the areas that allow access to the crash site are limited. Mega Man, you
must find a way to break through.

(Ashe heads outside onto a platform of ice. Two people, one in red and one in
blue, teleport in.)

???? (red): Prometheus said he found someone interesting. I came to see who it
was. Thetis, she's nothing more than a kid, like you.

???? (blue): Hey, you're not that much older than me.

Ashe: W-What is it with you people!?

(The other two Megamerge.)

???? (blue): Didn't Prometheus tell you that you'd meet other Mega Men? My name
is Thetis, the Ice Mega Man... Chosen One for Model L.

Atlas: I'm Atlas, the Flame Mega Man... Chosen One for Model F. How is it that
an unenlightened Hunter who has no ideals is a Mega Man?

Model A: What is going on with all these weirdos?

Ashe: I don't need ideals, I have my pride. I can't stand people like you who
are always looking down on others.

Thetis: Haha, just as I expected. But... I don't feel like fighting right now.
We've got other things to do.

Atlas: I've got no time for some kid who became a Mega Man by accident. You look
like you could use a nice, cold dip.

(Atlas breaks the ice. She and Thetis teleport away as the ice breaks, sending
Ashe into the water. A Maverick appears.)

????: *Ha ha ha* Welcome to my sub-zero world where even time freezes! You've
got some nerve calling yourself a Mega Man, Plebian! You're nothing more than a
lowlife commoner! I, Chronoforce will take that Biometal off your hands!

(The two fight. Ashe defeats Chronoforce.)

Chronoforce: ...You are nothing more than a pawn in the palm... of HIS hand.
...All you can hope to do is just flail about in the little time you have left!
*cackle*

(He explodes. Ashe absorbs Chronoforce's DNA.)

Ashe: Do you get the feeling that those two back there are just puppets? "HE" is
probably pulling the strings behind the scenes.

Model A: Shoot!... Who do they think they are, taking advantage of our
ignorance! Now I want to go all the way and win this game even more!

(Ashe finds a transerver and reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 7 - The Raider Airship
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Ashe enters the oil fields where the Raider airship had crashed.)

Security: DUE TO AN AIRSHIP CRASH IN THIS AREA, SAFETY LOCKS ARE IN OPERATION.
LOCKS CAN BE DISENGAGED BY DEACTIVATING THE 3 ELEMENTAL SWITCHES. TO DEACTIVATE,
EXPLOIT THE VULNERABLE ATTRIBUTES OF EACH ELEMENTAL SWITCH. ELECTRICITY IS
EFFECTIVE AGAINST FIRE, ICE AGAINST ELECTRICITY, and FIRE AGAINST ICE.

(Ashe destroys the three switches.)

Security: ELEMENTAL SWITCHES DEACTIVATED. SAFETY LOCKS DISENGAGED.

(Ashe continues until he finds a Raider named Dan collapsed on the ground.)

Ashe: Hey! Are you OK!?

Dan: Ugh... Ug... Help me... Our airship is under attack by something nasty...
It intends to massacre us all!

Ashe: A massacre!?

Thomas: This is Master Thomas. It seems you've arrived at the crash site. That
entire area is an underground resource mining facility. If that airship
explodes, it will trigger the entire facility to detonate.

Model A: He means we're going to be blown away! C'mon, let's get outta here!

Ashe: ...The airship is this way, right?

Model A: I don't get it. Those guys are all Raiders. Are you sure you want to
help those guys!? Technically, they're your enemies, right?

Ashe: It doesn't matter who they are. This is the story of my life! I don't want
to live my life with regrets! I shouldn't need a reason to save lives!

Model A: OK, OK, if you feel that strongly about it... You want me to go with
you right? Well let's go, Ashe!

Thomas: If the airship is destroyed, you won't be able to recover any of its
parts. Anyway, you have to prevent the worst from happening. Hurry, Ashe.

(Ashe heads into the Raider airship and finds a fallen Raider named Tom.)

Tom: Are you here to help us? Some of us weren't able to get out in time.
They're still trapped in that room. There's something funny going on with the
power. Some of the doors won't open... Please... All of my friends are in that
room. Please get them out.

(Ashe turns the power back on and finds a Raider named Daniel.)

Daniel: W-Who are you? Are you going to hurt me? Please... No...

(Daniel escapes. Ashe finds a Raider named Eric.)

Eric: Ohhh! Finally, it opened! Thank you!

(Eric escapes. Ashe finds a Raider named Adam cornered by Mavericks. He destroys
the Mavericks.)

Adam: I dunno who you are, but thank you for helping me.

(Adam escapes. Ashe continues until he sees Atlas standing next to a hole.)

Atlas: So, those Raiders escaped through here. Every last one of you will become
nourishment for Model W!

(She jumps into the hole. Ashe follows.)

Ashe: Wait!

Atlas: So you managed to stay alive, Mega Man Model A. Don't tell me you're here
to help the Raiders? They're not even your allies.

Ashe: This is also part of what Hunters do. Heroes show up just in time.

Atlas: Hmph, you get some Mega Man power and all of a sudden you think you're a
hero. The history of the world, the history of the war... And now, the strongest
of those who evolved as a product of war remain. A newly crowned king of Mega
Men will soon spawn a new evolution. Mega Man's power is the strength to fight.
Those without strength don't evolve.

Model A: So you feed them to Model W? I'd say that's pretty barbaric progress.

Atlas: What would you know!? You can't even comprehend your own power. If I'm
the one that's wrong, try and beat me!

(Atlas megamerges. The two fight. Ashe defeats Atlas.)

Atlas: Aren't you going to finish me off? Very well. I yield to you. As long as
your opponent is still alive, the Game of Destiny isn't over. One day you'll
regret not finishing me off!

(She teleports away. Ashe absorbs Model F's DNA. Ashe reels in pain.)

Ashe: Aghh! Aaaaarrrr! What's happening!? Model A! Aieghh!

????: EXTRACTING FROM CODE AW15 TO CE70. EXPANDING REPORT DATA.
......Congratulations. The Model A which I created is protected by a cipher that
is broken only in battle. You, who broke the first cipher, are worthy to know
its truth and power. Through my research of the lost technology, I have created
a key to unlock the door to a new evolution. Biometal Model W... He who holds
it, will hold the power to rule the world. But it will take much time before
people will finally appreciate my work. Sacrifices are necessary to awaken Model
W. Model Ws which I have hidden throughout the world are waiting to be awakened.
Waiting for when the one who understands my work appears, to receive the power.

Ashe: *gulp* ...Model A... What just happened to me...

Model A: Was that the data recorded on me that those Sage guys were talking
about? The data on the one who made Model W... and me?

Ashe: Are you OK Model A? We'd better go help the others.

(Ashe continues and finds two Raiders hiding behind a wall.)

Wolff: What!? Whoind'heck are you! This shield is made of ceratanium! Your
attacks are completely useless against it. So, why don't you save yourself the
trouble! Go home!

(He laughs.)

Model A: ...All this talk is starting to get really old. Yo, morph into that
Atlas lady, and let's hit 'em hard with a Charge Attack! Say goodbye to that
precious shield of yours!

(Ashe morphs and destroys the shield. Wolff stops laughing and cowers.)

Wolff: Waaaagh! P-Please d-don't hurt me!

Model A: I thought so... just a buncha wusses! Morph back, and let's set the
record straight...

(Afterwards, Wolff and Ashe are standing at the entrance to the Raider airship.)

Wolff: You saved our lives. Thanks a lot, Sis!

Ashe: Drop the Sis, would you? I want to use your airship for parts to repair
our train.

Wolff: Aah, it's already been taken care of. I just sent some of our guys to
Hunter's Camp to do the repairs. We were all impressed with your strength and
courage. We're going to clean up our act and work with you as honest to goodness
bounty Hunters.

Model A: *chuckle* It looks like you have a follower. It's not a bad feeling to
be appreciated.

Wolff: The repairs should almost be finished. Go back to the camp and have a
look. I hope you find out something at Legion, Sis!

(Ashe reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 8 - Attack on Legion HQ
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Ashe uses the train to go to a train station connected to Legion HQ. Ashe
reaches the city near Legion HQ, and hears an explosion.)

Ashe: ...What was that sound!?

Model A: There's a shootout somewhere. I wonder if Mavericks got the jump on us.
I can't get through to the Sage Trinity. This doesn't look good.

Ashe: Let's hurry to Legion Headquarters!

(Ashe enters a room, and Siarnaq teleports in.)

Siarnaq: TARGET ACQUIRED. INITIATE INFORMATION ANALYSIS. COMMENCE PLANNED COMBAT
PROCEDURE? INPUT RESPONSE...

Model A: Aw, man, this guy's the weirdest of 'em all.

Siarnaq: INVALID INPUT. INPUT RESPONSE.

Ashe: Why don't you just shut up and get out of my way before I blast you!

Siarnaq: RESPONSE ACCEPTED... COMMENCE COMBAT...!

(Siarnaq megamerges. The two fight. Ashe defeats Siarnaq.)

Siarnaq: DAMAGE... CRITICAL! HAZARDOUS TO PROCEED WITH COMBAT ENGAGEMENT IN
PRESENT CONDITION... RETREATING!

(He teleports away. Ashe absorbs Model P's DNA. He reels in pain again.)

Ashe: Aaaaaaaaaah!

????: EXTRACTING FROM CODE CE71 TO FC60. EXPANDING REPORT DATA. ...You who have
broken the second cipher now stand at a fateful crossroads. If you continue to
read this data, there is no turning back. You too are part of this plan.
Biometal has the abillity to give its "Chosen One" superhuman powers and combine
to become a new lifeform. This combination results in a Megamerge, the
transformation into a Mega Man. I've decided to select a new Chosen One suitable
for Model W, the next step in evolution. Finding a suitable candidate in this
world is nearly impossible. But I can do it, because as one of Legion's Sage
Trinity, I know everything about the world...

Ashe: Model W was made by one of the Sage Trinity!?

Model A: That means that he and Prometheus are connected somehow behind the
scenes. And it means that we can't even trust the Sage Trinity. Yet you still
wanna go?

Ashe: If we run, we won't be able to find out anything! One of the Sage Trinity
is behind this, and I'm going to find out who it is!

Model A: The data recorded on me is getting more and more outrageous.

(Ashe reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 9 - Betrayal
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Ashe heads inside Legion HQ.)

Mikhail: I can't stand Mavericks!

Thoms: It's hard to believe that they're cooperating.

Albert: They may be taking orders from a leader.

Mikhail: What do they want? To make enemies with every nation on the planet?

(Albert walks to the side.)

Albert: What? What if they're just fed up with the world.

Thomas: What?

(Model W begins circling around Albert.)

Albert: A new rule... For the evolution of the ultimate Mega Man...

(A second Model W hovers around Albert.)

Albert: And there's one scientist who wants to see that evolution through to its
end.

(Two more Model Ws circle Albert.)

Mikhail: What are you saying!? No... You didn't!

Albert: I have a proposal. A proposal to this world I've led for centuries. A
system to come up with fair solutions based on the doctrine of the Sage Trinity.
If you're opposed, then just try and stop me.

(Ashe enters the room and notices Albert.)

Model A: Hey, isn't that Biometal!?

Albert: Two of the ciphers have been broken. I wanted to stall her longer... but
she's developing faster than I had expected. Excellent, Ashe! It pleases me.

Ashe: Hunh!? What do you know about me!?

Albert: I know everything about you! As if you were my own daughter. I want you
to grow! Evolve! Show me your strength!

(Anime cutscene.)

Ashe: Master Alberrrt!

(Ashe locks on with his homing shot and attacks Albert, but Albert deflects all
of it. The astray shots break the window. Albert beings to hover.)

Albert: We will meet again. You are, after all, made in my image.

(Albert floats away as Ashe runs to the windows and stares in horror. Later,
Thomas and Ashe are standing in the room. Anime cutscene end.)

Thomas: I see. I'll tell you everything we know. With these mechanical bodies,
we've been able to live for centuries. When Albert became one of the Sage
Trinity those centuries ago, he was already working on Model W. So I looked you
up in our database, Ashe.

Ashe: You looked me up? Was there any information about me!?

Thomas: Well, there was no data on you... It appears that you never existed.

Ashe: W-What!? That's impossible... I'm standing right here!

Thomas: Calm down! Yes, you most certainly are standing here. So it's possible
that Albert erased your data from the database. I'm not exactly sure why, but I
know this. He thinks you're special.

Ashe: Albert thinks that I'm... special?

Model A: ...*sigh*

(Mikhail approaches them.)

Mikhail: Everyone, bad news. We have Mavericks showing up all over the world.
Albert has started hunting for food for his Model W.

Model A: He knows the jig is up! He's going for a Hail Mary! Let's go!

Ashe: Uh, OK...

Model A: C'mon, let's go make Albert tell us everything he knows. And yeah, we
can do heroic rescues along the way! What's wrong? Are you scared?

Ashe: W-Who, me!? You've got to be kidding!

(Model A floats in front of Ashe.)

Model A: Attagirl! That's the Ashe I know. No matter what Albert knows about
you, that won't change who you are. The most important thing is what you do now.

Ashe: ...!

Model A: When we first met on that train, you said that you wanted history to
remember your name. A hero that put the past behind her and lived for the
future... Now that sounds like a great story!

Ashe: I can't believe YOU are giving ME encouragement... Wonders never cease!

(Model A joins Ashe again.)

Ashe: Let's go Model A! Our story isn't over yet!

Thomas: Thank you, Ashe. I have a new mission for you. I want you to stop
Albert's plan and save our world. I've added new transport destinations to the
transerver. ...I'm counting on you.

(Ashe reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 10 - The Highway
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Ashe transports to the highway.)

Mikhail: There are people being chased by the Mavericks on that Highway ahead.
It looks like all the people trying to flee in their cars have caused a traffic
jam. The situation is gridlock. Drive back the Mavericks and buy time for the
people down there to escape.

(Ashe eventually encounters some people trying to escape in cars.)

Raymond: Hey, move it! We're sitting ducks here!

Ashe: Leave the Mavericks to me! When it's clear, I want you to go!

Raymond: I don't know who you are, but thank you! There are still cars stopped
back there! They need your help!

(Ashe takes down an airplane attacking the cars. The cars speed away.)

Model A: It looks like the people made it through.

Ashe: OK, now all we have to do is hold off the pursuing Mavericks.

(Ashe continues until he encounters Thetis.)

Ashe: Thetis! Are you the one causing all of this trouble?

(Thetis tosses Model L into the air a couple of times.)

Thetis: I'm flattered. You remembered my name!

(He megamerges into Model L.)

Thetis: Come, there's something I want to show you.

(He jumps into the water and Ashe follows. They see a Model W piece humming.)

Model A: Model W!? You attacked the Highway to feed that thing!?

Thetis: That's right. But what I want to show you is further down... At the
bottom of this dirty sea. The sea during the war was no place for living
creatures. After the war, the sea's beauty was restored. However, as humans
repopulated, the sea once again grew filthy. You see, humans have to desecrate
the Earth to live on it.

Ashe: You talk all high and mighty, but what you're doing is no different than a
Maverick.

Thetis: *chuckle* Me? A Maverick? You are a funny girl... We were planning on
playing this little Game of Destiny to decide the Mega Man King by ourselves.
You're the one that just happened to Megamerge, then show up and be a
nuisance... so I'd say that kind of makes YOU a Maverick!

(They fight. Ashe defeats Thetis.)

Thetis: It's too bad... I thought you, at least, would understand what I'm
trying to accomplish! I won't give up. I shall awaken Model W and change this
world for the better!

(Model W and Thetis disappear. Ashe absorbs Model L's DNA. He reels in pain.)

Ashe: Aaaagh!

????: EXTRACTING FROM CODE FC61 TO UC79. EXPANDING REPORT DATA. In order to find
a Biomatch for Biometal Model W, first I created sibling Reploids. As well as
giving them a portion of Model W's power, I gave them 1 commandment. That was to
determine the most powerful Mega Man. A commandment to Biomatch each of my
Chosen Ones to a Biometal. And have them fight until only one of them was left.
The survivor of this contest will attain the power of Model W, and become the
ultimate Mega Man. Yes, the new King of the world, the Mega Man King.

Model A: We broke another cipher. Now I understand why Mega Men fight each
other. But where is the information about us? And what the heck are the two
Reploid siblings?

Ashe: ...

Model A: Hey, can you hear me? What happened? Why the frown?

Ashe: Uh? It's nothing...

Mikhail: It seems you got everyone out of there safely. Just what we'd expect
from a Chosen One.

Ashe: (Chosen One...? But like Thetis said, my Megamerging was an accident.
But... was it an accident? Albert said that I'm special... What am I... Who am
I?)

(Ashe reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 11 - The Floating Ruins
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Ashe transports to the floating ruins. The ground shakes.)

Ashe: Aagh! The ground...! Aaaagh!

(The entire ruins rise up.)

Ashe: Phew... It stopped...

Model A: The ground is floating! What's going on?

Thomas: Are you alright? That area is experiencing a gravitational anomaly.
Also, powerful energy reactions have been discovered. In all likelihood they are
the cause of the gravitational anomaly. Proceed to investigate the energy
reactions.

(Ashe continues until she finds a Model W, humming.)

Ashe: What's a Model W doing here!?

Model A: Could this be the source of the gravitational anomaly!?

(Aeolus teleports in.)

Aeolus: Inescapable destiny... So, you came, Mega Man Model A. But I'll be
taking the Model W.

Ashe: Aeolus! What are you doing collecting all those Model Ws!?

Aeolus: That's a silly question... You call yourself a Mega Man, yet you don't
even know the significance of Model W... You fear what you don't understand, and
eliminate what you fear... It's because of foolish people like you that there is
conflict.

Model A: I don't know what all of that ideological babble was about, but it
sounded a lot like a threat.

Aeolus: So it is. In the world I have in mind, there is no place for idiots like
you, Mega Man Model A! Your time's up fool!

(Aeolus megamerges. The two battle. Ashe defeats Aeolus.)

Aeolus: A woeful miscalculation...! To think that I could be bested by a
plebeian! I'll never acknowledge one as ignorant as you, Mega Man! Your time's
up fool! I will right this world's wrongs!

(Model W and Aeolus teleport away. Ashe absorbs Model H's DNA and then reels in
pain.)

Ashe: Aaaaagh!

????: EXTRACTING FROM CODE UC80 TO AC195. EXPANDING REPORT DATA. The power of
Biometal isn't something to be had by just anyone. It's a power which should
only be obtained by a Chosen One, one with the ability to change the world. I
devised this cipher to lock away the power of the Biometal. A cipher that would
allow only the Chosen One to unleash its power. In other words, it's locked to
its Biomatch. All Humans who get a bionic body have to come to Legion for
inspection. I made sure that every bionic body part I inspected was infused with
my DNA. That is the key to the cipher, the proof of being the Chosen One. Yes,
by viewing this data, you now have within you my DNA.

Model A: ...Who IS this guy?

Ashe: So I'm a blood relative of Albert?

Model A: I know it's not easy, but don't let it get to you. That's just some
label Albert made up. Try not to think about it.

Ashe: Uh... yeah...

Model A: That Albert guy just used his position as one of the Sage Trinity to do
whatever he wanted.

Thomas: It's true that Albert knew more about technology than anyone. But we had
no idea that was the kind of man he was. We should have known better.

Ashe: It's OK. I was kinda prepared for it. But if it's only a matter of
becoming a Mega Man, then I'm no different from Aeolus. There must be a reason
that Albert treats me special...

Model A: I guess the only one who knows that... is Albert.

Thomas: The gravity in the area should normalize momentarily. Head to the next
destination.

(Ashe reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 12 - The Scrapyard
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Ashe transports to the scrapyard.)

Model A: What is this place? There's junk everywhere.

Mikhail: That's a Scrapyard. There are mountains of discarded machines. Until
only recently they were buried in snow. Imagine that!

Ashe: I don't see any snow.

Mikhail: The hear from the machines melted it all. Machines that were thrown
away simply because they were supposedly broken became Mavericks and started
working again.

Model A: Scrap that just starts working again!?

Mikhail: That's the reason I had you two come here. Whoever is controlling the
scrap should be here too. Take him down and scrap the Mavericks.

(Ashe continues until she finds a Maverick.)

????: I see you pushed your way through all of those Mavericks to get a special
front row seat to watch me perform. That's pretty Mega of you, Mega Man Model A.
I'm Vulturon. I play the part of the prince who kisses Model Ws and wakes them
up!

Ashe: There's a Model W in here too!?

Vulturon: Not so fast, that's where the VIP seats are. I'm afraid you can't go
in there. What do you say we start the show? I'll play the guitar, and you'll
sing the vocals. I'm looking forward to the finale as you scream your last
breath!

(They fight. Ashe defeats Vulturon.)

Vulturon: What! This was supposed to be Mega's death concert, not mine!
Aaaaagggg!

(He explodes, leaving behind his DNA, which Ashe absorbs. Ashe continues until
she finds a humming Model W and Pandora.)

Pandora: I hear it... The discarded machines... the Mechaniloids... Their voices
of sadness... of pain... of anger... All food for Model W.

Ashe: Pandora...!

Pandora: Even as you awoke... destiny had already been set in motion.

Model A: What the heck are you talking about?

Pandora: The time will come... when you shall know everything. And you will be
driven to despair...

(She and Model W teleport away.)

Ashe: Pandora... Does she know my secret...?

Mikhail: Hmph... She took Model W with her. She's definitely odd. Good work. The
Mavericks in that area seem to be settling down. Mission accomplished. Don't
forget to submit a report.

(Ashe reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 13 - The Control Center
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Ashe heads to the Control Center.)

Ashe: Is it hot in here or what!?

Thomas: That building is the Control Center for several energy furnaces in the
surrounding city. But the Mavericks have caused an uncontrollable thermal
runaway.

Model A: If we don't do something, the energy furnaces will explode. These guys
don't mess around, do they!?

Thomas: We don't know how long those furnaces have until they blow. Do something
to take charge of that Control Center.

(Ashe continues until he finds Prometheus with a Model W.)

Prometheus: It's been a while. But I see you're surviving the Game of Destiny.
Well? Have you found anything out about yourself?

Ashe: I've learned that I'm nothing like you.

Prometheus: Funny... I was under the impression that we were two peas in a pod.
You're bitter at me for making you look like a fool in front of your friends.
You're here to fight for revenge... Same as me.

Ashe: I don't know what it is you're fighting for... but I'm different. I just
don't appreciate you using people for your entertainment as if you know
everything.

Prometheus: Stop quibbling and trying to rationalize your own actions. You think
you're some kind of a hero! But one day you'll wake up and realize that you'll
never be a hero.

Ashe: What did you say!?

Prometheus: That's right, remember that! The next time we meet, I won't just be
retrieving Model Ws. No rush, I'll cut you to ribbons soon enough. Look forward
to it!

(He and Model W teleport away.)

Model A: Bleeeh! He makes me sick!

(A bee Maverick flies down.)

????: My, my! Did little Prometheus leave already? He's so impatient. In a
moment the energy furnaces will explode and a beautiful fire flower will bloom,
filled with sweet nectar. The nectar of terror.

Ashe: I'll never let your horrible flower bloom!

????: Oh, it's you. The Mega Man Model A that Prometheus talked about. I'm
Queenbee. I'll give you a taste of my special nectar... Despair with a touch of
bitterness.

(The two fight. Ashe defeats Queenbee.)

Queenbee: *Aagh* What!? You refuse my precious gift of despair!? Aaaaargh!

(She explodes, leaving behind her DNA, which Ashe absorbs. Ashe continues until
she finds a computer.)

Thomas: I presume that's the main computer which controls the energy furnaces.
This can't be! The cooling function can't keep pace with the thermal runaway!
Rip out the core module and shut down the main computer by force.

Ashe: How are we going to take out the core module? It's huge!

Model A: Hey, change into Queenbee! She was carrying some kind of big container
before, right? Shouldn't we be able to raise the core module up the way she did?

(Ashe pulls up the computer.)

Thomas: It seems to have switched over to its subsystem somehow, and the thermal
runaway has stopped. The auto-recovery system should kick in momentarily. Thank
you for your help.

(Ashe reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 14 - Model ZX
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(After Ashe reports the last mission, Thomas contacts him.)

Thomas: This is Thomas. Albert seems to be retrieving Model Ws from everywhere.
Actually, we've just gotten confirmation of Model W activity in the Quarry at
Hunter's Camp. Hunters have Mavericks pinned down, but they can't move in any
further because of the rough terrain. It's up to you to get into the Quarry,
then find and retrieve the Model W. Our reports tell us that there's a large
airship closing in on the Quarry. Albert may already be aware of what's going
on, so be careful.

(Ashe heads into the area and continues until she finds a bunch of wreckage.)

Model A: Who could have done all this? Another Mega Man? But Albert's guys
shouldn't have to fight Mavericks...

Ashe: Enemies are all the same. Just fight 'em one at a time, and move on.

(Ashe continues until she finds a boy near a piece of Model W.)

Ashe: Who are you!?

???? (boy): What's a girl doing here?

(A blue Biometal floats in front of him.)

???? (blue): Careful, Vent! I sense Biometal on her.

(A red Biometal floats next to him as well.)

???? (red): I've never sensed anything like this before. What is she?

Model A: Two Biometals!? A Mega Man!?

Ashe: It looks like you beat us to it. Whaddaya say you be a gentleman and let
me have the Model W?

Vent: What do you want it for, huh?

Ashe: Alright, I'm done with the nice approach. I'm gonna take that Model W with
or without your permission. Your choice.

Vent: Sorry, no deal.

(Anime cutscene. Vent holds up the blue and red Biometal.)

Vent: Model X! Model Z! Here we go! Double Megamerge!

Model X & Z: Biolink Established! M.E.G.A. System Online!

(Vent megamerges into Model ZX. Anime cutscene end.)

Vent: I don't want to hit a girl, but there's a reason I can't give it to you. I
will become a Mega Man that can protect everyone!

(The two fight. Ashe defeats Vent and copies Model ZX's DNA. She reels in pain.)

Ashe: Aaaaagh!

(Vent reels in pain as well.)

Vent: Gyaaagh! What's... this!?

Model Z: She's resonating...! Could it be because of her Biometal?

Model X: Be careful, Vent! There's some kind of data pouring out from her
Biometal!

????: EXTRACTING FROM CODE AC196 TO TC2343. EXPANDING REPORT DATA. This is the
last cipher. You, who knows all about the plan. You have earned the right to
receive the ultimate Biometal. Sleeping Model Ws everywhere feed on the fear of
humans, waiting for their day of awakening. And when all Model Ws have combined,
the ultimate Biometal will be born. Its name will be Ouroboros... The who holds
the Ouroboros will evolve beyond the mere fusion of man and machine. What I seek
is to become the ultimate Mega Man. My name is Master Albert. And I decide how
things are going to be. You, who will usher in a new way of life in a new
world... I hope that one day my research will pave the way to a new course of
evolution.

(Ashe and Vent stand there, defused from the Biometals, who are hovering near
their respective Chosen Ones.)

Ashe: Ouroboros and the ultimate Mega Man... That's Albert's plan!

Model A: Now I get it... The reason why we were created. Why you can Megamerge
with me...

Ashe: Model A...? What did you say just now...?

Vent: Can someone explain it to me too? When I resonated with you just now, I
saw a lot of data. That man, Master Albert created Model W right? So who are
you?

Model A: That's kinda hard to explain...

(Model W breaks from the wires and falls under the ground. The five stare.)

Model X: Uh oh! Model W!

Model Z: It must've taken some damage in the fighting.

(Ashe moves close to Model A.)

Ashe: Tell me, Model A, who am I? What do you know?

Model A: I'm sorry... I can't tell you now...

Ashe: Model A!

Vent: OK, that's enough. There might be a reason Model A can't say anything
right now. While we're standing here, that Model W is making more Mavericks,
which is going to make it tough to get close.

Ashe: And who made you the big brother all of a sudden!? Anyway... I'm sorry.

Vent: Let's call a truce for now. We should both focus our attention on that
Model W.

Ashe: Can you move? You must have overdone it. I'll go ahead.

(Ashe megamerges with Model A and heads for the exit.)

Vent: You believe what I say so easily. I should finish you off...

Ashe: Gimme a break. You're gonna make me lose my concentration.

(She goes through and continues through the area until she finds Model W with
the wreckage of the spider he had fought earlier. Model W merges with and
revives the spider.)

Model A: Hey, what are we supposed to do? They can't expect us to take this
thing back!

Ashe: We have no choice. We have to destroy it!

(Ashe defeats the spider, but it isn't destroyed.)

Ashe: Dang! How is this thing still able to move!? What a pain in the neck...!

(Vent jumps down and destroys the spider with his saber.)

Ashe: Why did you help me?

Vent: What do you mean, why? I don't have a reason to fight you. My objective
has always been to destroy Model W, and stop the Game of Destiny, where Mega Men
fight each other. What is your name?

Ashe: Huh?

Vent: My name's Vent. It looks like we got off on the wrong foot.

(Ashe demerges with Model A, who hovers next to him.)

Ashe: I'm a Hunter, Ashe, and this is Model A. We're on a mission for Legion.

Vent: Legion... Wow, that's something.

(He demerges with Model X and Model Z, who hover next to him.)

Vent: This blue Biometal is Model X. We're together. And this red one is Model
Z. It's a memento from a dear friend... Anyway let's go back to the camp. We can
talk on the way.

(Afterwards, Vent and Ashe are standing in the Hunters' Camp.)

Vent: So let me get this straight. Master Albert, Prometheus, Pandora and 4 Mega
Men. Hm, so that's what happened to the Biometals that were stolen from the lab.

Model X: Unfortunately those Biometals probably have the consciousness of their
four Chosen Ones. Biometals gave us strength when we fought the Model W.

Model Z: We followed the stolen Biometals here.

Vent: That's when we found the Model W and you attacked us.

Ashe: I said I was sorry. So, why are you kids fighting Model W?

Vent: You kids... I'll have you know, I'm older than you... The same as you,
before I knew it I was just caught up in it. I lost a lot of close people in the
battles with Mavericks and Model Ws...

Ashe: So you want revenge...

Vent: No. You can't defeat an enemy with hate... You just make more enemies. I
want to use my power for something I believe in. That's why I made that promise
to my friends, to be the Mega Man that protects them. Mega Man power is strong.
Strong enough to change the world. But, there's one thing it can't change...
that is our own destiny. You have to use your own power to do that. Ashe...
Don't lose yourself in the power.

Ashe: How can you even say that and keep a straight face... But I like that...
Those are good words to live by.

Vent: *laugh* Thanks... By the way, this is for you.

(He walks over to her and gives him a Green Card Key.)

Vent: There was Pseudoroid activity in the area that key opens. I was going to
check it out myself, but I know that you can handle it. I'm going to join the
others and go after the other Biometals. Let's meet again. Next time, let's take
on this Game of Destiny, side by side.

(He walks away.)

Model A: Ashe... I...

Ashe: Model A... I'm sorry about before. I wasn't myself. Like Vent said, we can
change our destiny. A past that I never knew doesn't matter. I am the author of
my story from here on out.

Thomas: Good work. It's unfortunate that we couldn't bring back the Model W in
one piece. But the destruction of a Model W should put a wrench in Albert's
plan. I'd like to use this opportunity to our advantage somehow, but
unfortunately, we don't have any leads. Use your new key and search areas you
haven't been to yet. Something may turn up. We're counting on you, Ashe.

(Ashe reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 15 - The Biolab
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Ashe finds the Biolab and enters it.)

Ashe: Ugh... It really stinks down here... That's no ordinary sewage! Is it
coming from inside?

Model A: Us Biometals don't really have a sense of smell... I'm kinda glad I'm
not you right now.

Ashe: It smells like oil or something... The smell's gonna get into my clothes.
Let's hurry and check it out!

(Ashe continues until she sees some industrial sewage.)

Ashe: That smell was coming from this industrial sewage.

Model A: With this equipment, this is obviously not just a ruin. Let's go in and
find out what this place really is.

(Ashe continues until she finds a huge Maverick with with sleeping
Mechaniloids.)

Ashe: ...Look at all these huge Mechaniloids!

????: Are you surprised? These soldiers were all born here. They're to be used
one day by the Mega Man King!

Model A: Albert thought about all of this!?

Bifrost: My name is Bifrost... Guardian of the sleeping soldiers. When the new
world is born, they shall awaken and exterminate the old-world inhabitants. But
for now, Mega Man Model A, I shall exterminate you! I shall crush every last one
of your bones with my jaws!

(They fight. Ashe defeats Bifrost.)

Bifrost: Am I the one being exterminated!? Is it you who shall bring about the
new world and not we!? It is you after all... UWAAAAA!

(He explodes, leaving behind his DNA, which Ashe absorbs. Ashe finds some
familiar blocks.)

Model A: Up ahead... I remember those... Those are the blocks we couldn't break
no matter how hard we tried! We might be able to use Bifrost's jaws to do the
trick.

(Ashe finds a transerver and reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 16 - Waterfall Ruins
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Ashe enters the Waterfall Ruins.)

Mikhail: It's me, Mikhail. About the information we found on you in the Legion's
database... It appears that someone hacked in from the outside and erased it.

Model A: It had to be Albert.

Mikhail: We did all we could to pinpoint the location of the hacker, but the
network response is slow in the area you are in. Can you see a large computer
facility in that area?

Ashe: Computer facility? No, there's nothing like that around here...

Mikhail: I'm afraid we can't do anything else. Now, it's up to you. If you can
find the computer used to do the hacking, there may still be some data on it.
The missing data on you is one of the only clues there are left to track down
Albert.

Ashe: The computer used to hack my data...? Anyway, I'll look for suspicious
places.

(Ashe continues until two Maverick twins appear.)

???? (right): Wait right there! I don't care who you are. But I can't allow you
to continue any further!

???? (left): *grunt*!

Ashe: Two Pseudoroids! Probably Albert's!

???? (right): That's right! Call me Argoyle!

???? (left): *grunt*!

Argoyle: And he's my other half, Ugoyle! We will defend this area with our
lives!

Model A: I see. So, the computer used to do the hacking is in there!

Argoyle: Do you think you can break through our defenses?

Ugoyle: *grunt*!

Argoyle: Then come on, Mega Man Model A! Let me show you the way... The way to
the netherworld!

Ugoyle: End of the line for you!

(The three battle. Ashe defeats Argoyle and Ugoyle.)

Argoyle: You!... Me!... We're broken!

Ugoyle: ...No!

Argoyle: You managed to win this battle, but you won't survive this war!

Ugoyle: Aaaaaaaggh!

(They explode, leaving behind Argoyle's DNA, which Ashe absorbs.)

Model A: To leave Pseudoroids standing guard... Albert must really not want
anyone to see what's in there.

Ashe: Never underestimate the skills of a first class Hunter!

(Ashe notices a Datadisk covered in dirt.)

Model A: Ashe! Take a good look over there! There's something on the other side
of that wall.

(Ashe retrieves the Datadisk and continues until she hears an explosion.)

Model A: W-Was that the sound of an explosion just now!?

Ashe: It came from this way! Let's go!

(She runs through the door and finds Prometheus and Pandora near the destroyed
computer.)

Ashe: Were you the ones who destroyed the computer!?

Prometheus: That's right! We've entered the final stage of the plan... We don't
need to hack anymore. But we couldn't just let you go snooping around in there
looking for information about yourself either. And we can't let you, who beat 5
Mega Men just retire.

Ashe: What!?

Pandora: The reason we've kept you alive is all part of the plan. Soon it will
all be over. The destiny of destruction.

Prometheus: *laugh* Albert, as well as his stupid game are about to be over! As
Albert meets his demise!

Ashe: The end of Albert!? Why!?

Prometheus: I'll tell you when it's all over... Perhaps as you are dying...
*evil laugh*

(He teleports away.)

Pandora: We'll meet again...

(She teleports away.)

Ashe: Wait just a minute! What are they planning to do!?

Mikhail: Wait, what? Those two weren't working for Albert? What about the
computer? Is there anything left of it?

(Ashe examines the computer.)

Ashe: What's this...?

(He finds a Data File A.)

Ashe: It doesn't look like there's anything else.

Mikhail: Don't feel so bad. Even without data, you are very real and you exist
in this world. The proof is in the fact that they went to so much trouble to
keep you from seeing the data. Let's investigate the data we do have on our own.
Send it together with your mission report.

(Ashe sends a mission report and the Data File A.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 17 - The Mysterious Lab
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Ashe finds a transerver that leads to the Mysterious Lab and goes there.)

Ashe: What is this place?

(She looks around.)

Ashe: The bridge is destroyed...

Model A: It looks like there was a fight here.

Thomas: There's no response from that monitor over there... It's giving off some
kind of jamming frequency. If this is a secret lab, there may be something here
that someone doesn't want us to see.

(Ashe looks around to the next building.)

Ashe: We Hunters are very good at finding out secrets. So let's go find it!

Model A: It would be nice to find some treasure, but I have a bad feeling about
this...

(Ashe continues through the area until she finds a room with two capsules.)

Ashe: Two open capsules... I wonder who was in there...?

Model A: Look at that panel. There's a message.

(Ashe examines the panel.)

????: DAN-001 "PROMETHEUS" TIME REMAINING BEFORE SHUTDOWN FOR RECALIBRATION
246924 SECONDS.

(Ashe examines the second panel.)

????: DAN-002 "PANDORA" TIME REMAINING BEFORE SHUTDOWN FOR RECALIBRATION 246939
SECONDS.

Ashe: Prometheus and Pandora's capsules... Looks like those two were made here.

Model A: Maybe they're what the data meant by "Reploid siblings." I bet the
first two Mega Men Albert made were Prometheus and Pandora.

Ashe: ...!

Thomas: There's no doubt about it. These capsules are the chains that bound
them. So that they wouldn't go against Albert's plan.

Ashe: Chains?

Thomas: The counter on the panel is probably Prometheus's life. It's set pretty
short. They're made so that they'll die if they don't go back into the capsules
for maintenance at regular intervals.

Model A: In order to stay maintained, they have to do what Albert says.

Thomas: It looks like this building goes further in. There may be something
left. Keep looking.

(Ashe continues until she finds a Maverick.)

????: Hey, hey, that's as far as you go! Nobody gets past this point! I'm just
following Mr. Albert's orders.

Ashe: *yawn* Yeah, whatever. Now out of my way!

Hedgeshock: Hey, hey! Do you think you can just ignore me, Hedgeshock!? You've
got to face the penalty! A shocking penalty! Mr. Albert's orders are aboslute!

(They fight. Ashe defeats Hedgeshock.)

Hedgeshock: Hey, hey! That kind of strength... is... cheating! It's just like...
Mr. Albert's strength! WAAAAH!

(She explodes, leaving behind her DNA, which Ashe absorbs. Ashe continues until
she finds another capsule.)

Ashe: There's another capsule here...

Model A: But it's empty. There's something showing on this panel, though.

(Ashe examines the panel.)

????: DAN-000 "PROTOTYPE" FINAL VERSION COMPLETE. START FINAL PHASE.

Ashe: What does "Prototype" mean? I bet this too is part of Albert's plan...

Model A: Huh? There's a disk still in this drive!

(Ashe gets the Data File B.)

Thomas: Very good, but all you managed to find is an empty capsule and some
incomplete data? There might be some Mega Men that we don't know about. We'll
analyze the data here and see what we can find. Send it with your mission
report.

(Ashe goes to the transerver and submits a mission report and the Data File B.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 18 - The Initialization Key
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Thomas contacts Ashe once she finishes the last mission.)

Thomas: It's Thomas. We've succeeded in analyzing a file in the data you found.
This is the initialization key for a special transerver. It contains transport
coordinate data of some kind. We were able to completely recover it using the
data you sent.

(Ashe gets a Initialization Key.)

Thomas: Do you remember ever seeing a transerver that hadn't been initialized?

Ashe: A transerver that hadn't been initialized?

Thomas: If you find it, use that key. It's the data that had been split in two
and guarded so vigilantly. Albert is presumably at the receiving end of that
transerver.

Ashe: I can initialize the transerver with this key... ...OK, I have to remember
that.

(Ashe goes to the broken transerver in Biolab3.)

Ashe: That's strange... This transerver seems dead...

Transerver: CURRENTLY IN STANDBY MODE... INSERT INITIALIZATION KEY TO RESUME...

Model A: Is this the transerver that Thomas was talking about?

Ashe: Yeah, I'll use the initialization key.

(Ashe uses it.)

Transerver: ... ... ... ... ... INITIALIZATION KEY VERIFIED. COORDINATE DATA
VERIFIED. SWITCHING TO ACTIVE MODE.

(The transerver activates.)

Model A: Yesss! It worked! I suspect Albert's hideout will be at that transerver
destination. Let's make sure we do this right.

(Ashe decides to transport.)

Model A: Let's go storm Albert's hideout!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 19 - Albert's Hideout
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Ashe transports to the undersea volcano.)

Model A: Do you feel it, Ashe?

Ashe: Yeah, I sense something just up ahead. It must be Model W!

(Ashe continues until he finds a room full of Model Ws.)

Ashe: These can't all be Model Ws!?

Albert: Hahaha... Are you surprised, Ashe?

(Ashe heads into the room and finds Master Albert.)

Albert: Do you have any idea how much time I've invested in this plan? Did you
think you could foil my plan by destroying one or two of my Model Ws? Not a
chance.

(Pandora and Prometheus teleport in, facing Albert.)

Prometheus: We'll see about that.

Ashe: Prometheus...? Pandora!

Prometheus: So this is where he's been keeping the recovered Model Ws. I never
thought you would have found this place for us.

Pandora: Thank you Mega Man Model A...

Prometheus: How many centuries has it been since we last met like this, Master
Albert! You look even more ridiculous in person than you do on that monitor!

Albert: What do you all think you're doing?

Prometheus: This is what we're doing!

(Prometheus attacks and kills Master Albert.)

Prometheus: HA HA HA HA HA! To be defeated by the very first Mega Man you ever
made! How fitting, for the scum that you are!

Model A: What the!? What's going on!?

Prometheus: You were being used by us all along. From the day we first awoke, we
were Mega Men destined to fight each other... To further Albert's insane plan to
create the ultimate Mega Man.

Pandora: So we decided... to take revenge on Albert.

Ashe: Revenge!?

Prometheus: We found many Mega Men and brought them into this fight. We knew
that if we were successful, Albert would show up. And then you tracked him down,
allowing us to exact our revenge.

Model A: I didn't think this is how the game would end...

Prometheus: *laughter* What are you talking about... It's not over yet...! We're
still here. The garbage left behind by that scum!

Pandora: We can't get our old bodies back... We can't change our destiny... So
we'll hasten the destiny of destruction...

Prometheus: We will destroy all that Albert made. That is our revenge! So let's
have some fun, why don't we? And go out with a bang!

(The three battle. Ashe defeats Prometheus and Pandora.)

Ashe: That's enough! This fighting is senseless!

Prometheus: That's right... Even you can see that this fight is pointless!

Pandora: Mavericks terrorize humans, and in turn Model Ws absorb that anguish.
Albert used Legion as a front to go about selecting Chosen Ones. A world where
Mega Men are created to destroy each other all for Albert's satisfaction.

Prometheus: It was all a farce! Albert prepared everything in this world
according to his own plan. He said Mega Men are the natural evolution of Man!?
Don't make me laugh! What an epic sham! I'm going to demolish this whole
wretched world!

(Purple energy surrounds Prometheus and Pandora and begins to be sucked into the
Model Ws.)

Prometheus: DAAAAAAAAAAHH!

Pandora: AAAAAAAAAAHHH!

(The energy stops being sucked, and they collapse. Their DNA hovers over their
heads.)

Model A: Hey... could this be...!?

Ashe: All of the Model Ws are awake!

(A red-haired man with resemblence to Albert teleports in. He absorbs the DNA of
Prometheus and Pandora.)

????: Prometheus... Pandora... Your centuries of anger... suffering... hate...
and insanity along with your battles against other Mega Men have given me the
data I need!

Ashe: That voice... Could it be... Master Albert!

Model A: So who was it that Prometheus defeated...!?

Albert: That was a decoy. A dummy body that worked as one of the Sage Trinity in
my stead. I am DAN-000 the "Original"... This me is the genuine article, the
real Master Albert!

(The room shakes and the ceiling begins the crumble.)

Albert: Just as I planned! Soon all of the Model Ws will begin to merge! I will
become the ultimate Mega Man and the plan will be complete!

Model A: This place won't last long! We need to hurry and get out of here!

Ashe: B-But Prometheus and Pandora...!

Model A: What are you saying!? We can't carry both of them! If you don't make
it, who's going to deal with Albert!?

Ashe: ... Prometheus... Pandora...! ...Sorry...!

(Ashe dashes away.)

Albert: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 20 - The Rise of Ouroboros
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Ashe ends up at Hunters' Camp. He goes outside where Billy is.)

Billy: H-Hey! What's that!?

(The earth shakes. A giant snake Mechaniloid, Ouroboros, rises into the air.)

Model A: That's all of the Model Ws merged together... Ouroboros!

Ashe: Albert must be inside! It's airborne. We have to take an airship! Do any
of you Hunters have an airship!?

Billy: ...There's not even one left. Mavericks destroyed them all.

Model A: There's nothing left we can do!

Vent: Don't give up so easily! Aren't you supposed to be a first-class Hunter?

(Vent walks up to them.)

Ashe: Vent!

(She runs to him.)

Vent: We meet again. I've got something to show you. But remember... From here,
there's no turning back! I'll be waiting for you here. Call me when you're
ready.

(Ashe readies herself and talks to Vent.)

Vent: This can't be good. So that's the ultimate Biometal... Ouroboros. All of
the Mavericks that came out of that thing are wreaking havoc. I managed to smash
a few of them, but they just keep coming.

(Ashe turns around.)

Ashe: How cowardly! Just looking down at the world from the sky! Can't we do
something?

(Vent raises one arm into the air.)

Vent: Of course we can. That's why I came to see you. You're coming, right? To
write your story?

(Vent points to a giant airship in the sky.)

Ashe: W-What's that...?

Vent: She belongs to me and my crew... She's the Guardian Base! There's only one
thing left that we can do... Use the Guardian Base to board Ouroboros. We must
take Albert down!

Billy: Hey! Wait!

(Billy and two other Hunters run up to them.)

Billy: You're going after the ringleader, right? Let us have a piece of the
action too!

Richard: What do you think the bounty might be on booty that big!? I'm getting
excited just thinking about it!

Ashe: Come on you guys! This isn't some kind of bounty mission...!

Thomas: Oh, yes it most certainly is... An official mission from Legion
Headquarters.

(Thomas walks up to them.)

Ashe: Master Thomas!

Thomas: ...How brave you all are... You wouldn't be satisfied unless the mission
was official. Legion is having trouble supplying enough manpower to fight the
Mavericks. Ashe... I'm putting you in charge.

Ashe: Everybody! Let's so Albert who's world this really is!

Vent: Looks like your friends are ready for action! Let's go, follow me!

(Vent runs away, with Ashe and the other Hunters following him.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 21 - Rematch
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Guardian HQ is flying towards towards Ouroboros.)

Vent: Once we grab a hold onto Ouroboros, expect Mavericks to take to us like
flies to you-know-what! It's up to all of you to defend the Guardian Base! We're
going home victorious, got it!?

(A crashing noise is heard. Vent and Ashe, megamerged, as well as the three
Hunters run out of Guardian HQ, which had hit Ouroboros.)

Vent: Ashe! You go ahead! I'll handle things here and catch up to you!

Ashe: OK! Let's go! Model A! It's time to give Albert a little payback!

Model A: OK!

(Ashe continues until he finds a fancy looking room.)

Albert: I'd have never guessed that they would come after the Ouroboros in an
airship. The ways of those who can't keep up with progress are savage.

(Albert teleports in.)

Ashe: Albert!

Albert: By the way, there are some people here to see you. Would you be so kind
as to make their acquaintance?

(He transforms into Buckfire.)

Buckfire: Traitor Model A... I will destroy you!

(He transforms into Chronoforce.)

Chronoforce: *Ha ha ha* I've been waiting to get my revenge.

(He transforms into Rospark.)

Rospark: Oh, you again... You don't give up, do you, girl?

(He transforms into Queenbee.)

Queenbee: Oh, allow me to give you a proper welcome!

(She transforms into Vulturon.)

Vulturon: Back for an encore, are you?

(He transforms into Argoyle and Ugoyle.)

Argoyle: We won't be beaten again.

(They transform into Hedgeshock.)

Hedgeshock: You've still got a shock coming!

(She transforms into Bifrost.)

Bifrost: For your disloyalty to the king, you shall perish!

(He transforms back into Albert.)

Model A: A-Trans...!?

Ashe: Why do you have the same copy ability as Model A?

Albert: I told you that you were made in my image. But my real power is not in
my copy ability. The spirit of everything Model W eats lives on inside me. The
power to control all life. That is the power of the ultimate Mega Man. The real
A-Trans! They're waiting for you inside with their new bodies. Please go in and
play with them. If you can make your way to me, I'll tell you everything, on
how, even being incomplete, you can still use A-Trans, and who you really are.

(He teleports away. Ashe encounters Vulturon.)

Vulturon: You'll be getting the VIP treatment this time... I have a special
requiem for you!

(They fight. Ashe defeats Vulturon.)

Vulturon: I'm going to retire... Now it's up to you... Carry on with the show...
Give 'em a Mega performance...

(He explodes. Ashe encounters Rospark.)

Rospark: *sigh* I was hoping I wouldn't have to see you again... I just despise
pesky little girls. Get out of my sight!

(They fight. Ashe defeats Rospark.)

Rospark: Aaagh! I don't ever want to see you agaaain!

(He explodes. Ashe encounters Chronoforce.)

Chronoforce: *Ha ha ha* Shall we being our time of bliss together? I'm going to
take my time manhandling you!

(They fight. Ashe defeats Chronoforce.)

Chronoforce: You can't stop the flow of time! Just let yourself be swallowed by
the tidal wave of a new era...!

(He explodes. Ashe encounters Buckfire.)

Buckfire: *snort* *wheeze*!! New king born! New world be born soon! You not
needed!

(They fight. Ashe defeats Buckfire.)

Buckfire: You... broke... law...! Go... and receive... King's... punishment!

(He explodes. Ashe encounters Argoyle and Ugoyle.)

Argoyle: Only those who are loyal to the new king may pass.

Ugoyle: *grunt*

Argoyle: There's only one way you're getting through... That's as a sacrifice to
the king!

Ugoyle: Meet your end!

(They fight. Ashe defeats Argoyle and Ugoyle.)

Argoyle: Very well... you may pass... We throw ourselves before your feet...!

Ugoyle: Graaah!

(They explode. Ashe encounters Hedgeshock.)

Hedgeshock: It's my turn! It's my turn! Here I go! Here I go! I'm going to
punish you good!

(They fight. Ashe defeats Hedgeshock.)

Hedgeshock: It's all over! It's all over! Either way... Mr. Albert will get you
in the end!

(She explodes. Ashe encounters Bifrost.)

Bifrost: When it comes down to it, you're nothing but a small fish in a big
pond. So just make it easy on yourself and let me end it for you quick and easy!

(They fight. Ashe defeats Bifrost.)

Bifrost: Born in the shadow of the king, you can never make a world of light!

(He explodes. Ashe encounters Queenbee.)

Queenbee: There's going to be a great party tonight... You should celebrate with
us. A new king has been crowned. It's definitely going to be a night to
remember!

(They fight. Ashe defeats Queenbee.)

Queenbee: Are we reduced to colluding with the evolutionarily inferior...? Hmph!

(She explodes.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 22 - The Final Battle
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Ashe continues until Aeolus teleports in.)

Aeolus: You made a foolish choice... You should have have stayed away.

(Thetis teleports in.)

Thetis: We've got some unfinished business to take care of! I'm not just going
to let you waltz out of here!

(Atlas teleports in.)

Atlas: This is as far as you go!

(Siarnaq teleports in.)

Siarnaq: TACTICAL ADVANTAGE, FOUR TO ONE... COMMENCE COMPLETE DESTRUCTION OF
TARGET!

Ashe: What's wrong with all of you? Are you stupid!? Albert has been using you
from the start!

Aeolus: A mere trifling technicality... The winner out of all of us need only to
defeat Albert to become king. Those are the rules that Albert himself laid down.

Ashe: Oh... You idiots!

(Vent jumps next to Ashe and charges up.)

Vent: I'll take over from here, Ashe! You go on ahead!

(He shoots at Aeolus, who dodges by flying into the air. As Aeolus jumps into
the air, Ashe dashes away underneath him.)

Aeolus: Why, you...!

Vent: Well, well. We've finally found what we were looking for... I need you to
hand over all of your Biometals!

(Ashe continues past a flurry of flowers and finds Albert sitting on a throne.)

Albert: I thought you might come right about now... I'm so happy... But at the
same time, I'm so sad. If you hadn't met Model A, you would have died never
knowing the truth.

Ashe: What do you mean?

Albert: Oh? Model A, you haven't told her yet? You should remember everything by
now.

Model A: Stop it! Don't listen to him, Ashe! Waste him!

(Albert stands up.)

Albert: Ashe... You are my distant offspring. You are descendant of the family I
left before I became one of the Sage Trinity. You were able to Megamerge with
Model A because your DNA bears so many similarities to mine.

Ashe: But that's because you somehow incorportated your data into me...!

Albert: No, you are completely unaltered. Your appearance was totally
unexpected. The Model A you have was a backup system that contains my entire
plan. Model A... In other words, Model Albert.

Model A: I hate that name!

Albert: Don't say that. Soon that name and what it stands for will be gone.

(The throne and Albert morph into a giant snake creature.)

Albert: For me to have to extinguish the life of my own flesh and blood is so
sad. But... I'm glad! Because by my own hand, I will become the only "me"!

(They fight. Ashe defeats Albert. The giant snake explodes, leaving behind
Albert.)

Albert: I can hear them, the anger, the bitterness, the sadness of the
sacrifices to Model W. Having consumed the souls of people throughout the world,
the awakened Model W is the world's consciousness itself. Model W desires
destruction... It desires that the Earth conclude its own autobiography... So be
it! Model W... Ultimate Mega Man! If at evolution's extreme... there is
destruction, it was destined to be that way.

Ashe: That stuff is only in your head! The power of Model W has taken control of
you!

Albert: Hmph... By drowning in peace, by rejecting change, you made the choice
for the destruction of the Earth. I am trying to create a new world. I want to
bring new life into the world and protect its future.

Ashe: Whoa! Don't talk to me like I'm an idiot! You're blowing things way out of
proportion!

(Anime cutscene.)

Albert: I don't THINK I'm a god... I AM a god!

(Albert pulls off his cloak, revealing a shadowy figure, and rises into the air.
The blue sky breaks into yellowness, and he transforms into his second form.
Anime cutscene end.)

Albert: The world that you live in itself is defective. Before a new world can
be made, this world must be reset. That's where the ultimate power of Model W
comes in. I have already decided the fate of the world as its god. The destiny
of destruction cannot be changed!

Ashe: No... I can change my destiny! We alone decide our fate!

Albert: There it is... that empty misery... It disgusts me! That's why I made
Mega Men, to evolve! You, who couldn't become a god... You're not even a Mega
Man, you're a mere mortal!

(They fight. Ashe defeats Albert.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 23 - Your Own Destiny
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ashe: You're no Mega Man king... You're no god... You were gonna destroy the
world... You were gonna end the story... You're not the one to make that
decision! This is my life, my story!

Albert: Is that your best answer? You're most definitely one of my creations.
You... have surpassed me... My research wasn't wrong after all... Goodbye...
Ashe...! You can have your peace, and... rot in it!

(He explodes. The ground shakes.)

Model A: We're in trouble! This flying fortress is going down!

Ashe: He's gonna try and take us all with him! Let's get back to the others...
It's weird... I-I can't... move...

(Model A defuses with Ashe as Ashe collapses.)

Model A: Hey... Hey! Ashe! Get a hold of yourself! Ashe!

(Meanwhile, Vent is still facing the four other Mega Men.)

Model X: Vent! It's too dangerous here, we have to go help Ashe!

Vent: I know, but four against one isn't gonna be easy...!

(Model Z demerges and hovers in front of him, leaving him in Model X form.)

Model Z: ...Go ahead. I'll stay here and hold them back.

Vent: No... What are you talking about!? That's ridiculous, Model Z!

Model Z: No worries, today's not my day to meet my maker.

Model X: Let's go, Vent! Trust Model Z!

Vent: Alright! I'm gonna hold you to that.

(He dashes off.)

Aeolus: Such beautiful resolve... To throw away your life for a friend.

Model Z: Like I said, today ain't my day to die...

(The screen flashes, and the four Mega Men collapse.)

Model Z: I know more about Biometals than you.

Thetis: Agh... What!? My... body... feels... heavy... Model L...!

Atlas: Biometal!

Siarnaq: INCOMPREHENSIBLE...! INCOMPREHENSIBLE...!?

Model Z: Vent, take care of Ashe!

(He flies up and the screen goes white. Ouroboros explodes. Later, Ashe wakes up
in the same room in Hunters Camp from the beginning of the game.)

Ashe: Aaaagh! Huh?... Where am I...?

(She stands up. Model A hovers in front of her.)

Model A: Ashe! Finally you're awake! I'm so glad! I was worried sick about you!
W-What's wrong? Are you still hurt?

Ashe: *chuckle*! How cute! You look so concerned!

Model A: W-What! Can't I be worried about my friend!? I'm just happy you're OK.
Is there something wrong with that!?

Ashe: *chuckle* Thanks, Model A. For worrying about me.

Model A: Y-Yeah, anyways, let's go outside! Vent's waiting for you!

(He joins Ashe. Ashe goes outside. Vent walks up to her.)

Vent: Are you OK? It was tough carrying you out of there.

Ashe: That isn't usually what a boy would say to a girl, is it? Hey, what
happened to Ouroboros?

Vent: Ouroboros went down in pieces. And there's no sign of Model W anywhere.
Its wreckage just sank in the ocean. Ashe, it's all thanks to you!

Ashe: "Yeah... I know!"... is what I'd like to say, but it was thanks to all of
you. Like Vent said, we changed our destiny with our own power. Vent, where are
you gonna go now?

Vent: I want to go around the world in the Guardian Base. There are a lot of
things that need finding. What about you, Ashe?

Ashe: Me? Well, we already took down that guy who thought he was a god... Maybe
I should find a lot of booty, get rich, and buy back the world from Legion. As
if... Well, I guess I'll just keep being a Hunter. I'd like to see a lot of
different places, learn a lot of things, and have people learn about me.

(Model A floats next to Ashe.)

Model A: Hey? So, what am I supposed do?

Vent: You can choose your own destiny.

Model A: Oh! Uh, well then... Ashe, I wanna go too. Take me with you!

Ashe: Who said anything about leaving you? You're my booty, and my friend!

(The two run off as Vent waves goodbye.)

Vent: I hope we'll meet again!

Ashe: We can meet anytime... Because this is our story!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 24 - Extreme Mode Secret Ending
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thomas: ...To bring new life into the world, eh?

Mikhail: In the last mission report... Albert said some rather outrageous
things.

(Thomas and Mikhail are standing in the main room of Legion.)

Thomas: Mikhail... Do you think it presumptuous for us to give birth to new
life?

Mikhail: How absurd... Thomas, you couldn't possibly hold fast to such foolish
imaginings.

Thomas: There are laws that give equality to Humans and Reploids, correct? Don't
you remember? Those were passed because Albert and I agreed on them.

Mikhail: W-What are you saying?

(Thomas turns to Mikhail.)

Thomas: Give humans robotic bodies, and give Reploids mortality. So, where do
you think the Human bodies for the Reploids are? What do you think happened to
the original Reploid data from before we gave them mortality?

(Atlas, Siarnaq, Thetis, and Aeolus teleport in, Megamerged, beside Thomas.)

Mikhail: Thomas... You...!

Thomas: Albert was wrong, so I helped the Hunters. But I do think he was right
about one thing.

(The screen blacks out.)

Thomas: This world needs to be reset.
