So, I'm one of the few people who actually loves Narikiri Dungeon 3 as 
opposed to the other games. Games like this and ND2 doesn't get as much
love, so I decided to do something about it. I felt the need to write the
summary of the story as well as the beginning. Enjoy!



Prologue
----------

In Minacle City, the stories of the "Tales of" series are handed 
down as legend. The main characters, Frio and Kyaro, and their 
aquaintance Professor Brown, who lives there, have long admired the 
legendary heroes.

The ruins of an ancient super-civilization were found in a crack in 
the ground caused by an earthquake several years ago. Frio and 
Kyaro visit Professor Brown, who's studying and repairing some of 
the artifacts found in the ruins.

Among the relics is a timeship, a craft capable of transcending 
time and space. Its function is to travel space-time to keep in 
touch with the legends of the world. The restoration is finally 
completed by the triumphant Professor Brown.

He has Frio and Kyaro give the timeship a name. The name it Dream, 
because tomorrow they will achieve their dreams of meeting the 
heroes they admire.

But that evening...
Frio reads about legends as usually before sleeping, but something 
is strange. The story is different than what he read before. The 
hero doesn't get there in time to save the day, and the world is 
ruined. Frio mutters a complaint and goes to sleep.

"It's, it's, it's horrible!"
Frio and Kyaro awake to Professor Brown shouting, his brown hair 
disheveled. It seems that the Dream was carried away the night 
before. Since the story of the heroes are different, Professor 
Brown realizes that the theif's intent must be to alter the 
legends.

They must stop this somehow, but it'd be impossible to create a new 
timeship in time. As they try to decide what to do, a differently 
colored dream ship suddenly appears in front of them.

There is a familiar-looking white-haired man inside. He is 
Professor Brown from 100 days in the future. He found a second 
timeship, Dream II, in the ruins, repaired it, and brought it here.

One hundred days from now, the future is on the verge of crisis 
caused by the changing of the legends. His hair having become 
snow-white with heartache, the man now calls himself Professor 
White.

Frio and Kyaro try to board the Dream II right away, but the doctor 
stops them and makes them prepare. Another relic was found in the 
ruins: clothes that let them become different things. With the 
narikiri clothes and the Dream II, they can surely change this 
miserable destiny. Not only that, but they meet with the Heroes of 
Legend. Lloyd Irving, Genis Sage, and Colette Brunel are the 
Symphonian Legends, Stahn Aileron, Bruiser Khang, and Mary Argent 
are the Destiny Legends, and Reid Hershel, Farah Oersted, and Keele 
Zeibel. Raine ends up blowing a gasket towards Lloyd for not 
introducing her, but she chooses to accompany Frio and Kyaro's 
team.

Frio and Kyaro, along with the heroes, will transcend time and 
travel wars to save the world. Now the curtain rises.

=========
MISSION 1
=========

Frio and Kyaro start their adventure within the Ruins of the 
Meeting from Tales of Destiny 2(JP). It's the beginning of the 
timeline where Kyle and Loni are supposed to see the giant lens in 
order to help Rutee pay for the orphanage.  Frio and Kyaro will 
have to reach to the other side to meet with Elraine and two 
mysterious strangers that are accompanying her. Raine gives a 
tutorial of the dungeon movement. Frio will unlock the chests as a 
thief and the whole team will fight their way through the forest 
monsters. Kyaro will switch to her scholar costume and use her 
knowledge as a scholar to activate the switch that leads to 
Elraine.


After the trees open the path, the guest team from either of 
the legends will fight against Elraine(and probably impress Frio 
and Kyaro at the process).

After defeating Elraine, the two mysterious people who happen to be 
a blond woman and a skinny long-nosed man will take Elraine's 
pendant and run off. They will enter the Dream to escape. The 
Legends will end up surrounding the Dream to stop the escape, but 
the machine will escape with the guests. 

Afterwards, Frio and Kyaro will witness the meeting between Kyle, 
Loni, and Reala. Kyle will approach the lens, and it shatters, 
revealing a black haired girl. Kyle tells her that he's the hero 
that will help her. She dismisses him, saying that he's not the 
hero, and she'll walk off. Kyle and Loni will meet Frio, Kyaro, and 
Raine, and will join them.

They talk about what happened, evaulating everything, including the 
strangers. Then they go to sleep.

Evaluation of team: Raine, Frio, Kyaro, Loni, Kyle

=========
MISSION 2
=========

Next day, Professor Brown wakes Frio and Kyaro up to tell them that 
Professor White got captured and was taken to Lemi Ruins. The kids 
head to Lemi Ruin Dungeon 1F, which is not too far from the city. 
It seems that some bandits are holding Profesor White captive. 
While exploring the ruins, Raine displays her 'Archeological Mania' 
title. There are even legends about the people being turned into 
stone by the medusa statue, which makes the Hero Team very uneasy. 
When Frio and Kyaro arrive to Professor White, they see that he's 
held by bandits. After defeating the bandits, they rescue Professor 
White and rest up for the next day.


=========
MISSION 3
=========

This takes place within the God's Eye Shrine of the Destiny 
Legends line. This would be the shrine where the Eye of Atamoni is 
in. The big doors require two teams to stand in front of them to 
open it. A tall blue haired man, Barbatos, is at the other end. 
Currently, there is a woman(Mary), who is petrified. When Frio and 
Kyaro reach at the line, the strangers, revealed to be Ponie and 
Clyte, petrifies the two. Philia comes to the rescue and will join 
as a third team.

The Hero team faces off against Barbatos, who proves to be a tough 
challenge. After he's defeated, he will turn into stone and the two 
bandits will run off in the Dream machine once more.

Evaluation of team: Raine, Frio, Kyaro, Loni, Kyle, Philia, Mary

=========
MISSION 4
=========

The next mission takes place within the Trial Shrine from the 
Symphonian Legends line. Frio and Kyaro will see Lloyd and Colette 
walk around. Lloyd and Colette will lead them to Thanatos, who 
tells them that Frio and Kyaro aren't the same ones that defeated 
him from the alternate world(Narikiri Dungeon 2) and sends Lloyd 
and Colette to face them. Thanatos has them under his mind control, 
so they obey and attack. After defeating the two, Frio and Kyaro 
will face off against Thanatos, who proves to be a challenge. But 
when he's defeated as well, Ponie and Clyte will show up again, 
only to escape.

Evaluation of team: Raine, Frio, Kyaro, Loni, Kyle, Philia, Mary, 
Lloyd, Colette


=========
MISSION 5
=========

Professor Brown wakes them up and ships the Hero Team to Dhaos's 
Castle dungeon. Arche and Klarth are held captive by Dhaos, who's 
accompanied by Ponie and Clyte. The Hero Team work together to 
activate the switches, slaying each of the monsters that get in 
their way. Although more keep appearing out of nowhere, the team 
eventually rescue the distraught and annoyed Arche. Because Arche 
has the ability to fly on her broom, she can activate the switch 
for the hero team to face off against Dhaos.

Dhaos introduces himself to the heroes and the fight begins. 
Despite of Dhaos's martial arts skills, he is easily defeated. 
Ponie and Clyte escape once again, entering Dream once more. Klarth 
is rescued and both Arche and Klarth join the team.

Evaluation of team: Raine, Frio, Kyaro, Loni, Kyle, Philia, Mary, 
Lloyd, Colette, Arche, Klarth

=========
MISSION 6
=========

Professor Brown wakes the two up to tell them about the whereabouts 
of something strange within the Lemi Ruins. Frio, Kyaro, and the 
rest of the hero team head over to the ruins. Through exploring to 
the second floor, they find out something that shocks them...

Both Elraine and Dhaos are alive and well. It shocks them because 
they thought that the two were killed. But given that they are in 
front of them, the two are very much alive and well. To prove it, 
they fight the hero team. After being defeated, the two will run to 
the Dream machine and escape.

The heroes rest.

Evaluation of team: Raine, Frio, Kyaro, Loni, Kyle, Philia, Mary, 
Lloyd, Colette, Arche, Klarth.

=========
MISSION 7
=========

Professor Brown wakes the two up again to tell them that he found 
few of the missing heroes. They are drifting through time in a 
space continuum. They are to take the Dream machine to the rift and 
get them back. Reala and Rutee are those following that are lost. 
The only way to convince them without resorting to violence is 
letting Kyle convince Reala to join and letting Mary convince Rutee 
to join. Afterwards, the mission is complete. However, the mission 
can be taken again to get Chester, who has to be convinced through 
Arche.

Evaluation of team: Raine, Frio, Kyaro, Loni, Kyle, Philia, Mary, 
Lloyd, Colette, Arche, Klarth, Rutee, Reala, Chester.

=========
MISSION 8
=========

Professor Brown wakes the two up for the next next mission: Heading 
to Palace of Despair, Shizel's Castle. The Eternian Heroes have 
been found. Frio and Kyaro prepare the trip to the Palace to see a 
lot of floating pillars. They meet up with Reid, who sees that 
Farah and Keele are traveling with the monsters, being taken around 
the place as hostages. However, as the heroes meet up with them, 
they're forced to fight the heroes. After the monsters are 
defeated, Frio and Kyaro head to the sealed gate, only to meet with 
Farah and Keele. They'll attack the Narikiri kids, but will end up 
losing.

After the fight, the two will run away and the hero team go after 
them. They find out that the ones they faught are clones of the 
real heroes, who are unconscious. The two apologize for what 
happened and join the team.


Time to get a good night's rest, only to be waken up for the next 
mission. The rest will be omitted because it happens so often.

Evaluation of team: Raine, Frio, Kyaro, Loni, Kyle, Philia, Mary, 
Lloyd, Colette, Arche, Klarth, Rutee, Reala, Chester, Farah, Keele, 
Reid.


=========
MISSION 9
=========

The next mission takes place within the Gate of Rebirth, where 
Atwight and Dylmos are held hostage at the gate. If the party takes 
the east gate, Judas will help, if they take the west gate, Leon 
will be able to help. Both of them are the same character-wise, but 
Judas is more of the future. But either way, the party has to 
activate the switches at the side to rescue version of Leon that 
did not help the hero team. Each time the switch is pressed, a 
monster will appear and attack. Also, to keep in mind, there are
hostages behind the switches. But once the buttons are pressed at 
the same time, the gate will open. Next a group fo monsters will 
attack. Leon and Judas will work together to kill the monsters. 
After that, Atwight and Dylmos will leave. Depending which gate 
that was chosen, Leon or Judas will leave, leaving the alternate 
version, who'll join the hero team.

Evaluation of team: Raine, Frio, Kyaro, Loni, Kyle, Philia, Mary, 
Lloyd, Colette, Arche, Klarth, Rutee, Reala, Chester, Farah, Keele, 
Reid, Judas(or Leon).

==========
MISSION 10
==========

After getting babbled by Professor Brown, Frio and Kyaro from their 
nap. He has located the whereabouts of Ponie and Clyte. This time, 
the group are to arrest them for the crimes that they have 
committed.

Traveling all the way to the third floor, Ponie and Clyte are there 
with a pair of mysterious people. Both of these people are wearing 
a masked helmet and a cloak. Ponie and Clyte are noticed, so they 
create illusions of themselves all around the place. Those 
illusions reveal to be horrific monsters. But after all of the 
clones are taken care of, Ponie and Clyte are ready to make their 
escape. Unfortunately for them, their business partners left in the 
Dream Machine, deserting them to get captured.

Not wanting to take things lightly, Ponie and Clyte set up traps 
while running to a distance. After Frio deactivates the traps, both 
Frio and Kyaro deal with the cowardly thieves. After defeating 
them, they are safely put into jail.

Evaluation of team: Raine, Frio, Kyaro, Loni, Kyle, Philia, Mary, 
Lloyd, Colette, Arche, Klarth, Rutee, Reala, Chester, Farah, Keele, 
Reid, Judas(or Leon).

Afterwards, there will be three events that need to be taken care 
of, and there won't be any waking up from Professor Brown for a 
while.

==========
MISSION 11
==========

The next mission is in the Elf Forest. There are people captured 
there by the monsters. Unfortunately, due to half-elves being 
banished from entering the sanctum of the village, Raine and Arche
aren't allowed to enter. Plus, magic is forbidden in the land, so
the hero team needed to use their non-magical techniques. At the 
village, they found Stahn, Nanaly, and Cless. Mint was their 
healer. 

After rescuing the elves, the elder gave them treasures to open. 
The very last one had the villagers that they saved inside. Their
little joke.

Lloyd, Colette, Arche, Klarth, Rutee, Reala, Chester, Farah, Keele, 
Reid, Judas(or Leon), Stahn, Cless, Nanaly, Mint.

==========
MISSION 12
==========

Katz Village is the next destination. The Village Elder of the Katz
people requests that Hero Team protect the village. Monsters are 
trying to invade straight to the Elder's home. All of the teams 
split up to each portion of the village. However, things aren't 
enough as more monsters suddenly pile up.  And out of nowhere, a 
huge beam of energy annhilates the monsters. The defender is Max, 
who wields the Elemental Cannon. Max is joined by two of the Katz
people in his team.

After defending the village, the two Katz citizens thank Frio and 
Kyaro, but suddenly reveal their true forms to be the people that 
abandoned Ponie and Clyte.

Reid, Judas(or Leon), Stahn, Cless, Nanaly, Mint, Max.

==========
MISSION 13
==========

This begins in the Balir's house of Tales of Eternia. Harold is
chasing a robot around, thus throwing Frio and Kyaro into 
confusion. But soon, the robot goes haywire and tries to attack 
Harold, who hides behind Frio. Frio and Kyaro attack the robot,
easily defeating it. For his reward, Harold clocks Frio in the 
face.

The problem is that there are copy machines running in the factory,
and no one knows where the real one is at. The goal is to have 
Harold deactivate the copy machines. Two of them are real while 
the others are fake. While Harold goes off, the hero team have to
protect her from harm so she can deactivate the switches. It takes
some time for her to deactivate the right ones.

Meanwhile, Shizel plots over the machines until the hero team face
off against her. Destroying her, they proceed to deactivate the 
switches. After that mission, Harold joins the team as well as 
Meredy.

Meredy.

==========
MISSION 14
==========

Professor Brown is back to bugging Frio and Kyaro about the copy
machine. They are sent to a Human Ranch from the Tales of Symphonia
world.  Within the ranch, they meet with Zelos and Sheena, who seem
quite proud to introduce themselves to the Narikiri Team. Quite 
happy to see Zelos and Sheena, Frio and Kyaro offer to assist them.

The dungeon is fille with several copies of Zelos and Sheena. Some
of them are monsters while the others are clones of Zelos and 
Sheena combat-wise. Each team defeats the clone guardians. And as 
they keep deactivating the switches, more of them show up. After 
getting to the last set on the northwestern section, the clones 
confuse the Narikiri kids by claiming that they're the real ones 
until they show that they are monsters.

The fight is Zelos and Sheena vs Zelos and Sheena. Eventually, the
true form wins over the clones. The switch is deactivated and the
bid the heroes farewell. 

But a surprise awaits the children as the tank releases the real 
Zelos and Sheena, who aren't happy about being captured. It left
Frio and Kyaro thinking, 'If those are the real Zelos and Sheena,
who were the other ones...?' 

That's the mystery.

Zelos and Sheena join the team. The way how they join is a bit
amusing as far as the skit goes.

Kyaro: "It's Zelos!"
Zelos: "You may call me Zelos-kun."
Frio: "Zelos-kun!"
Zelos: "Wait, wait... what? Excuse me?"
Frio: "What's wrong?"
Zelos: "Guys are not supposed to call me Zelos-kun!"
Frio: "Why can't I call you Zelos-kun?"
Zelos runs off.
Frio: "Hey! Wait!"

Meredy, Zelos, Sheena.


==========
MISSION 15
==========

When Frio and Kyaro wake up, they find that Klarth, Philia, Keele,
Harold, and Raine are missing.  They are reported to be in Traitor
Fortress by Professor Brown. The professor sends them to the
Fortress. There, everyone tells them to stay back and not come any
closer. Genis and Kratos are in the place as well. Magic is cut 
off from the heroes, although the missing allies can use it. The
missing seven people are guided by a black version of Frio or Kyaro
with odd colored hair.

After knocking the senses into the missing members, the heroes are
greeted by the mysterious figures.  The mysterious figure in blue
and pink escape once again, telling them to meet them at the third
floor of Lemi Ruins.

==========
MISSION 16
==========

After getting rested up, Frio and Kyaro journey towards the Lemi 
Ruins. However, they were told to venture without anyone else with 
them. Leaving the Legendary Heroes behind, they went alone. It's a 
long process straight to the fourth level. After braving the 
monsters, Frio and Kyaro make it to the final section of the room.

The mysterious duo reveal themselves. The male turned into Dhaos, 
the female turned to Elraine, then to Farah, then the male turned 
to Zelos. Finally, the two reveal to be...

Frio and Kyaro. Frio has blue hair and Kyaro has pink hair, but 
both have black clothes. They introduce themselves as Evil Frio and 
Evil Kyaro from 100 days in the future. They mention about the four
keys that need to be collected before they run off.

Needless to say, the event left Frio and Kyaro spooked. Frio 
vehemently disliked his future self, and he kept denying that Evil 
Frio is not him. Kyaro told him that she'll protect him.

Meredy, Zelos, Sheena, Kratos, Genis.

==========
MISSION 17
==========

The next mission will take Frio and Kyaro to the Magitechnology 
Research Lab, where they have to obtain the Key of Light. A cannon 
fires off towards Frio, and Suzu rushes in and saves Frio, taking 
the hit herself. She tells him to get the key. The key itself is 
held by its guardians, who won't let it go. And as the Narikiri 
Team get close, it reveals to be that one of the holders of the key 
is Evil Frio, who just wants to blast the team with the laser 
cannons.

Once the team reach too close, Evil Frio makes a break for it until 
Suzu gets in his way. He relunctantly gives her the Key of Light. 
He tells Frio and Kyaro that they may be strong enough to defeat 
Jababa. They wondered who Jababa was.

[18 and 19 will basically lead to twenty. You have to choose which 
one you will deal with.]

==========
MISSION 18
==========

This takes Frio, Kyaro, and the team through the Cave of Ice. It's 
very cold; bitterly cold. After each few moments, the members who 
are not wearing protection against ice will face damages from the 
frost-biting flurry. There are a few rocks to break as well as 
dangerous monsters such as the sasquash and ice based monsters. 
This path is a more dangerous path. This will lead to an 
unconscious Garr. Celsius will appear and attack the Hero Team.

After defeating her, Garr will wake up and thank the heroes before 
leaving.

[Skip to 20]

==========
MISSION 19
==========

This will take the Hero Team to the Labyrinth of Fire. This is the 
more safe of the two because there are only lava pits on the 
ground. This area, however, gives off a lot of intensive heat. 
After venturing through the heat, the adventurers arrive to the 
central room, where they find an unconscious Chelsea.

Valkyrie will appear and attack the heroes. After she is defeated, 
Chelsea will act like a brat and run off.

[Skip to 20]

==========
MISSION 20
==========

After taking either mission 18 or 19, the heroes will be lead to 
the Colosseum. A tournament is hosted by someone. The Narikiri 
heroes will have to fight through all of the monsterous contestants 
to get to the champ, Bruiser.

The group fight against Bruiser and defeated him. After the defeat, 
the host of the tournament is revealed to be Evil Frio, who sends 
monsters to go after the treasure. This leads to the next mission.

==========
MISSION 21
==========

The new goal of the group is to prevent the monsters from accessing 
the treasury. The team set up the traps to make sure that they do 
not access the treasury. Each of the monsters are lead by a leader 
pack. Bruiser won't be much help, as he'll be busy fretting over 
the treasure.

Along the way, depending on who was rescued, the opposite 
person(Chelsea or Garr) and Karyl will join the fray to prevent the 
robbers from getting the treasure. After defeating the monsters, 
the heroes will be given the 'Key of Travel'.

==========
MISSION 22
==========

The Key of Future is located by Professor Brown and White. It's 
located within the Time Drift. They have also located the lost 
heroes of legend. Within the Time Drift, the Narikiri team have to 
find the Key of Future. However, Evil Frio is around, and he's 
going after the key as well. 

The race is off. Both sides are trying to find the keys, but the 
team also run into Presea and either Garr or Chelsea, whoever was 
not seen in the Colosseum. After Genis speaks with Presea and Garr 
to Chelsea or vice-versa, they join the team.

Thankfully, Frio and Kyaro locate the key and obtain it. Evil Frio 
assures them that they won't get the last key.

Also, the Time Drift will also report of the last three missing 
heroes: Chat, Regal, and Rassius. Chat will talk with Meredy, Regal 
will talk with Presea, and Rassius will talk with Farah.

Bruiser, Karyl, Rassius, Presea, Chat, and Regal.

==========
MISSION 23
==========

In order to access the last key, the switch from the Ancient City 
and the Floating Fortress will have to be activated.

Frio and Kyaro will have to split up. They both will need a full 
team to get the job done. Suzu is leading Frio to the Ancient City, 
aka Abyss of Thor from Tales of Phantasia.

Kyaro's not happy with being left out, but she hopes that Frio and
everyone will be okay.

Frio is leading everyone through the Ancient City. The difficult 
part about this city is that there will be electrical barriers 
blocking the path as they progress. To make matters worse, monsters 
will generate throughout the adventure from the warps. When the 
team arrive, Frio and the company will face off against Yggdrasill.

After defeating the flying ponce, Frio's group will arrive at the 
switch.

Bruiser, Karyl, Rassius, Presea, Chat, and Regal.

==========
MISSION 24
==========

Kyaro, disgrunted with leaving Frio's side, knows that she has to 
do her part. Like the Magic Technology Reseaerch Center, this place 
has laser beams. Kyaro and Arche have to team up to fly towards the 
switches, activating them for the team to pass through while 
avoiding the lasers from striking them.

After deactivating the switches, the group will meet up with 
Barbatos.

After defeating Barbatos, it reveals to be Evil Frio. He runs off 
after his defeat.

Soon, Frio gets signal from Kyaro that she is at the switch. Both 
members wait on the count of three to activate it, and they get to 
their prize, which takes place in the center of both areas: The Key 
of Hope. Everyone heads home.

Everything is well and nice until Frio and Kyaro are lead to Lemi 
Ruins by Suzu, only to find an unconscious Suzu in the hands of 
both Frio and another Suzu, who has the Key of Hope. The Suzu with 
the key reveals to be Evil Kyaro, who awaits for both Frio and 
Kyaro to meet them at the deepest part of the ruins if they want 
the key back. This infuriates the two. Evil Frio and Kyaro are 
waiting to activate the four keys to release Jababa from his 
captivity.

Evaluation of team: Raine, Frio, Kyaro, Loni, Kyle, Philia, Mary,

==========
MISSION 25
==========

This is the mission to end all missions. Every hero of legend is 
going to assist them in the fight. However, they are told that the 
battle between Evil Frio and Kyaro is between them. The heroes will 
help them along the way, however.

It is a good thing that they did, because the monsters within the 
ruins are even stronger, now that more of them have been freed. As 
the heroes reach over to the next stairs to the deeper part of the 
dungeon, one of the four members have to stay behind. (Lloyd looks 
irritated with the fact that he has to stay at the first level. I 
choose him.) As the heroes get through each floor, more and more 
have to stay behind.

At the last floor, it's Frio and Kyaro alone. They battle their way 
through the dungeon until they reach Evil Frio and Kyaro. When 
asked why they want to release him just to kill him, Evil Kyaro 
goes on about how Jababa killed everyone of the village and the 
fact that they could not protect one of them. They were bitter and 
hateful for their loss, and they blame it on 
themselves(particularly the past). Frio sees that there is no sense 
of talking to them, so they undergo three fights.

The first fight will be against Evil Frio while a Martial Artist 
and Evil Kyaro while a Gladiator. After the defeat, it'll be Leon 
costume and Mint Costume. The last costume is the most painful: 
Yggdrasill and Shizel. This is perhaps the most difficult battle. 

After the defeat, they get the Key of Hope back as well as the root 
items for the villain costumes. Unfortunately, both Evil Frio and 
Kyaro will die.

As both Frio and Kyaro are ready to leave, Jababa introduces 
himself, trying to coax the two to open the seal with the four keys 
and fight him. Frio and Kyaro mock him before leaving. He knows 
that they will want to unseal him for the fight. He believes that 
he'll crush them.

Evaluation of team: Raine, Frio, Kyaro, Loni, Kyle, Philia, Mary, 
Lloyd, Colette, Arche, Klarth, Rutee, Reala, Chester, Farah, Keele,

Meredy, Zelos, Sheena, Kratos, Genis, Suzu, Chelsea, Garr, 
Bruiser, Karyl, Rassius, Presea, Chat, and Regal.

ENDING
======

Back at Minacle Town, all of the heroes and the Narikiri Duo say 
their farewells. With time being restored once again, the heroes 
are able to complete their missions and set the dimensional 
timeline right again. Professor White leaves with the group in 
Dream II. This leaves them with Dream I again, which is promptly 
stolen again by the escaping Ponie and Clyte.

Frio and Kyaro are furious, but Professor Brown tells them not to 
worry. He had the time-machine send them to some place where they 
will have a real hard time coping with.

The ending proceeds to show them being chased by elephants and 
other animals of the African jungle.


==========
Epilogue
==========

The two decide to enter the Lemi Ruins once more to fight Jababa. 
He tells them a little secret. They were the ones that unsealed him 
and failed to stop him. which is what they're doing. 

However, this time, Frio and Kyaro are able to defeat him.

Jababa
Bwahahaha, you're pretty good, aren't you? But this is not the end. 
Bwahahaha, I know it! I have returned to life several times over. 
Bwahahaha, bwahahahahahaha...
  
Kyaro
In a nutshell, tomorrow will be worse than today, hm? o/`
  
Frio
You got that right! That's why us heroes can't stop!!

       +EXTRAS!!!+
------------------------------

Alright, so I wanted to include some pieces of the script from
the game that my friend did. Ayu did a huge favor for me, and
I give her a public thanks. These are different segments that
I wanted to include.


==============================================
Before Final Battle vs Evil Frio and Evil Kyaro
==============================================

Evil Frio
Heh, I thought the bull ran away or something.
   
Evil Kyaro
Any last words?
   
Kyaro
Where are you saying there's a need for the Demon Lord to be 
revived?
   
Evil Frio
Even if we didn't do it, I'm sure there's some idiot somewhere 
who'd release the seal. And then 100 days later, the world is 
destroyed... Before that happens, we're gonna kill Jababa!
   
Frio
First off, I totally don't get your reason for reviving him in 
order to kill him!
   
Evil Kyaro
What would you people of "today" understand?! Ken and Linda! And 
Sister Paula! And Miss Judy!! And Miss Maho!! None of them... none 
of them! I couldn't protect...a single one of them!
   
Frio
...I guess there's no point in talking past this point
   
Evil Frio
That's me for ya, you get straight to the point.
Now, why don't we get started soon?
   
Will you fight?
Yes<-  No
   
Evil Frio
Well then, first off, the first test will start with THIS outfit!


=======================================
After Defeating Evil Frio and Evil Kyaro
=======================================
[You gain all of the root items of the villains.]

Kyaro: Stop speaking (or you'll die!)!

E.Kyaro: We are... who you'll be tomorrow...

E.Frio: And you'll open the door yourselves at some time...

Frio: What are you saying?! Oi, don't die on me! 

E.Frio: Don't forget... you won against yourselves from the 
future...

E.Kyaro: Fate... can be changed. The future must contain infinite 
possibilities...

E.Frio: (dying) You must win... against the damned Jababa!

E.Kyaro: (dying) Be prepared... because tomorrow will be worse than 
today...

Got the Key of Hope back!

Frio: So, after all that effort to stop the door from opening... 
we'll do it ourselves?

Kyaro: We won't do something that stupid! C'mon, let's go back to 
everyone.

???: Wait~

Frio: You hear something?

Kyaro: Not really... I didn't hear anything that sounds like 
"Wait~"...

???: Wait~

Frio: Who is that!?

???: BWAHAHAHA! My name is Maou Jababa!

Jababa: If you're real heroes, open the seal and fight me!

Kyaro: If you're powerful enough to to be called the King- then you 
must be reeeeeally powerful, and that scares us /sarcasm

Frio: And we're not heroes~ /mock

Jababa: Wait! Wait! Stand and fight!

Kyaro: Ignore that worm.

Jababa: BWAHAHAHA humans who acquire strength will try... and it's 
possible to have that kind of strength... I know it! They will come 
back to unseal me! THEY WILL! BWHAHAHAHAHAAH (more laughter)

==========
Jababa
==========

Jababa
Bwahahaha, I knew you would return! Humans are creatures that 
inevitably come to wish to test the power that they've obtained. 
Bwahahaha, I was the same way! That's why I know them SO well. Now, 
open the door!
  
Will you fight?
(Yes) No
  
Jababa
Bwahahaha, I'll tell you something good. The ones who released me 
and destroyed the future in 100 days were-- none other than you two 
yourselves! Now, come at me! Bwahahaha!! Bwahahahahahaha!!



[After defeating Jababa]

Jababa
Bwahahaha, you're pretty good, aren't you? But this is not the end. 
Bwahahaha, I know it! I have returned to life several times over. 
Bwahahaha, bwahahahahahaha...
  
Kyaro
In a nutshell, tomorrow will be worse than today, hm? o/`
  
Frio
You got that right! That's why us heroes can't stop!!

Druaga

Paula
Your further growth follows the wish of God, does it not?
Please do your best!
  
Frio
Put the epic of Druaga under my pillow, and...
Aaaall right, preparations complete!
Awriiiiight!! Time for BED!!
  
Kyaro
Ugh, shut up!
What are you yelling about at this time of night?
  
Frio
Duuummy, didn't ya know?
When you sleep with a book under your pillow,
You can go to that world in your dreams!

Kyaro
You're the dummy here...
These days, even Ken and Linda don't do such childish things.
  
Frio
Lemme alone! Here on, I'll set off on an adventure to the world of 
dreams by myself o/`
  
Kyaro
Sure, Sure... Have a safe trip to wherever you feel like going,
'cuz I won't care even if you wake up all sore and stiff.
Good night, o brave hero.
  
Frio
I've transformed (narikiri) into the hero Gil
And I'm trapped in the Tower of Druaga----
A magnificent rescue for the beautiful maiden Ki!!
...And then the two of us will 
...And then the two of us will <3 <3 <3 (Yes. They totally put 
three heart marks there instead of text.)
Mhmhm... What a scrumptious plot!
Awriiiight!! Time for BED!!
  
  z z z z

Frio
I'm HERE! This is that place that was written about in the legend for sure!
The Tower of Druaga!!
Aaaall right, wait for me, Miss Ki 

???
As I suspected...
That's what I thought it'd be.
  
Frio
Hm? I have a bad feeling...
Geh, Kyaro!?
Why are you in my dream...
  
Kyaro
You don't know? A little while ago,
a new edition came out for the Druaga legend.
What I put under my pillow was
that version.
Don't you think even I'd want to try to meet
the newborn Lord Gil? <3
...and, with that,
let's begin of our grand adventure~ o/`
  
Frio
Waaaah... But this is *my* dream...
