Introduction
-------------

          Welcome to my Secret Of Mana Game Script FAQ. I have chosen to do a
Game Script for Secret Of Mana (or SOM from now on) because this was the first
RPG I ever played and I have really enjoyed this game. I have tried very hard
to write this script EXACTLY how it appears in the game, but that is hard to
do, and there may appear to be some typos, but they are like that in the game.
This document is completely original, I have prepared this script myself from
start to finish with no help from any other works or sources, except from the
game itself..

**Note**
 This script contains MAJOR spoilers and probably should not be read by first
time players of SOM. I suggest that you play through this game at least once
before reading this FAQ.

----------------
Version History
----------------

 2.0 12/30/02 : Added Ascii art. Fixed some character names. Guide Layout
section changed a little. Added chapter numbers in introduction.

 1.1 09/10/02 : Script completed. Minor changes made.

 1.0 08/17/02 : Began work. Layout completed

This script was originally written by Squaresoft and has only been transcribed
in full by me. This document may be used for any purpose, as long as it remains
INTACT and unaltered. If you wish to use this FAQ on your website, see my Email
address below. This document is copyrighted to me, narshe101, but the script
itself is copyrighted to Squaresoft and may be used for any purpose.

-------------
Guide Layout
-------------
  This guide works as follows:

I have marked "chapters" with a # sign.

A double row of ---- marks are sidequests, optional scenes, story breaks,
and/or dialogue that does not pertain to the mandatory plot.

Orbs gained are marked with 2*'s.

Minor items to note are marked with a single *.

To find chapters easier, use the FIND tool by pressing CTRL + F.

Feel free to name your characters what you will, I have named my characters as
follows: Hero, Princess, and Sprite.

For an easier time, people who say the the same things in an area will be
marked on one line rather than separately, ex.= if Guards 1 and 2 in an area
both say, "Get out!" then I will mark them as (Guards 1,2: Get out!)

**Note**
I will not re-cover towns that I have previously visited unless someone says
something completely different or it is mandatory to the story line.**

Game Script

 Intro:

			Using the power of Mana, a civilization
				  had grown strong...

			In time, Mana was used to create the
			ultimate weapon: the Mana Fortress...
	
			This angered the gods. They sent their
			    beasts to destroy the Fortress...

			A violent war rocked the world, and Mana
		 	        seemed to disappear...

			Before all was lost, a hero with the Mana
			        Sword smashed the Fortress...
		
			Though the civilization had been destroyed,
			        the world was peaceful again.

			But time flows like a river... and
			        history repeats...

#############################################################################
 **Bridge**

(3 kids on bridge)

Hero: Hey! Guys! Wait up!

Elliot: Shh! Be quiet! The Elder will find us here and he'll be mad!

Timothy: Yeah. We're not supposed to be here. There's a ghost around!

Elliot: Ha! Do you really believe that? People say that to scare us! But I
	heard Grandma say something about a shiny object near the falls.

Timothy: That must be some kind of treasure! We have to find it!

(Hero starts to fall backwards)

Hero: Help! I'm falling! Aaahhhhhhhhhh!

       (Falls)

(After landing in a shallow pool)

Hero: Ouch! Phew..! No way to get back up! Now what am I going to do?
				??
Hero: The village is this way. I have to find something to cut through!

(Mysterious voice)

....Hero.... Remove the sword... (repeats)

Hero: Who are you... and what's this sword doing here?

		(Pulls sword)

Hero: Urrrrrrrgh! Huh!? Ow! That light... so bright I can't see...
			......

Mysterious Voice: ......Hero... ......Hero...... It is I who asked...
		    the sword...

Hero: !? Say what? You mean this sword?..

		The brilliant light is gone in an instant.

Hero: I have to get back!

(Next screen, Hero sees a Rabite)

Hero:	Whoa! What's a Rabite doing in a place like this?

#############################################################################
 **Potos Village**

(Speaking to Elder in Potos Village)

Elder: Hero! You're not hurt! They just told me what happened.

Elliot: I thought you were a goner!

Timothy: I told you it was stupid to bring someone like HIM along!

Elder: You idiots! Weren't you told not to go there? Huh? Hero! What's
       that you have? ... Oh, no! It couldn't be!

Elliot: Cool! Did you find the treasure?

Timothy: Way to go!

Elder: What have you done?! How could YOU have pulled out the Mana Sword?
       It's impossible!

Timothy: THE Mana Sword?! Legend has it that our village is finished...

Elder: ...if the sword is removed. And here it is! It is said that the Mana    
    Sword has been  protecting our village from disaster.

Elliot: So that's it! That's why all the monsters are attacking us now! How    
       could an outsider like you yank out the sword and bring doom to us      
    all!!

(Elliot hits Hero)

Hero: Hey! Stop it!

Elliot: YOU did it!

Elliot: It's all your fault!

Elliot: You!

Hero: Please, stop!

Waaah!  Earthquake!..

(Both fall into a hole)

Aaaaaaah...

Elliot: Help! A m...monster! You have a sword, don't you? Use it!

Man: Hey! Can you hear me? Watch how the monster moves before attacking!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 (If you die while fighting the Mantis)

Man: Hang On! I'll help you! Clear your mind, wait 'till you have 100% power,  
   and aim carefully!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Man: You did it! Wait there, I'll pull you up.

(In front of bar)

Elliot: Waaaaaah!!! (Runs Off)

Man: That appears to be the real Mana Sword.

Hero: Huh? What?

Man: It is supposed to be pulled out by a knight in times of great trouble.    
  Problem is, you're too young! Something must have happened to the Mana      
Sword.

Hero: Here! It's yours!

Man: Sorry, but the sword is losing its power, and must be re-energized! Only  
   the person who pulled it free can do that.

Hero: What should I do?

Man: Visit Sage Luka in the Water Palace. She's been protecting these lands    
    for over 200 years. Listen to her advice.

(Timothy walks up.)

Timothy: Hero! The Elder wants you in his house!

Man: Well,I have to be off. Oh, my name is Jema.

Jema: I'll wait for you inside the Water Palace!

Timothy: Get Going!

(Elder's House)

Villager: Elder! We can't go on like this!

Villager: Yeah! There's no end in sight.

Elder: ... Oh, Hero! You've really done it to me this time! The reason why     
    monsters have appeared is because you removed the sword.

Villager: It's settled. We can't let Hero stay in the village anymore!

Villager: If we do, more monsters will come after him!

Villagers: Go! Get out of here! Yeah, on your way now!

Elder: I don't want to do this, but I have no choice. I'm going to have to     
    ask you to leave the village. You can take what's in the treasure          
 chest downstairs.

(Potos after taking the treasure)

Elder: I took you in and I raised you. But there's nothing I can do to help.   
    Please forgive me. I know I've told you this before, but... Your           
 mother brought you to this village when you were just a baby. Soon          
afterwards, she disappeared... I took you and have done my best to          
raise you. But now we must part. I truly hope you can find your mother       
someday. ... Good bye, Hero.

(Talk to him again)

Elder: I took you in and I raised you. But there's nothing I can do to help.   
    Please forgive me.

(People in North West house)

Man: Use the south-east exit. Go now before something else happens!

Woman: We're in danger as long as you're here. Please leave!

(Man in item shop)

Shop Owner: I'm only selling you stuff 'cause the elder ordered it. You have   
         to equip new armor for it to protect you! Anything else? Be seeing
you.

(Bar)

Bartender: Use the south-east exit. Go now before something else happens!

Girl: I feel sad, but there's nothing I can do. It's YOUR fault!

Gatekeeper: You are hereby banished from Potos Vollage. Now, get out of here!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Neko's House)

Neko: 30 GP/night would be purrrfect. Meow? Purrfectly priceless items
available! Anything else? Be seeing you.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Dyluck encounter before Water Palace)

 **(You can only talk to 3 of the 4 soldiers)**

Dyluck: We came from Pandora to fight Elinee, the witch in the haunted        
forest!

Soldier 1: That's Major Dyluck. This mission will be full of danger. But       
    we'll do our best!

Soldier 2: We need a whip to go through the short cut to the castle of         
  Elinee, the witch.

Soldier 3: Major Dyluck! All set!

Dyluck: Right! Let's go!

#############################################################################
 **Water Palace**

Jema: Let's go, Hero!

Hero: So? Now what? Hey, you, where's Luka?

Jema: Hey! How rude! Luka, it's nice to see you again.

Luka: Ha ha ha ... welcome!

Hero: What? You mean this girl is 200 years old?

(Speak with Luka)

Luka: My, my... looks like you have the Mana Sword! How interesting. Ho ho     
 ho!

Jema: Luka, monsters are invading villages. He just fought one!

Luka: I know. The ebb and flow of water brings me news from around the world.  
    Mana's power is growing weak. That's why this boy was able to take the     
 sword. When he did, the balance of Mana in this area shifted, and      
monsters revived. There are evil monsters working to steal away the       power
of the Mana Sword. By defeating those evil monsters, you can       restore the
Sword's Mana power. The power is kept in orbs. Looks like       it regained
some power from the Mantis Ant. There must be more hidden       orbs which hold
Mana power for the Sword. And you must find someone who       can forge the
sword to release its stored power.

(Speak with Jema)

Jema: Once I was one of Luka's followers. I studied the power of Mana, which   
   sustains everything in this world.

Luka: Jema, watch out for the Empire. It seeks to Obtain the Mana Fortress.

Hero: You mean the one that destroys the world in that fairy tale?

Jema: That's no fairy tale. The Empire is trying to awaken it.

Luka: The Empire is trying to unlock the seals from the world's Mana Seeds. A  
    bunch of strangers have already started snooping around this palace!

Jema: Something is very wrong in Pandora. Could the Empire be involved?

Luka: I don't know. Jema, see the king of Pandora and tell him to be      
cautious.

Jema: Right, I'm on my way. Hero, you go to the cave called Gaia's Navel.      
Dwarves live in that cave. They make good weapons and know all about      
weapons. They may know sombody who can forge and empower that sword of      
yours. As your sword's power and skill level increase, so too will your      
ability.

(Jema Leaves)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
**What options you choose do not matter, it ends up being the same **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Luka: Hero, what are you so scared of?

(The Sword)

Luka: That is THE Mana Sword, but its power is gone! It used its last ounce of
power to summon you...

(Why Me?)

Hero: Why did it choose me?

Luka: I don't know, but now you must re-energize it!

(No Problem)

Hero: What should I do?

Luka: You must become a hero who is worthy of the sword!

(Who, Me?!)

Hero: Thats impossible!

 Eons ago the ancients used the Mana Fortress in their Final Battle. But even 
they could not control Mana... In the end it was your sword that saved the  
world. Survivors rebuilt the world to honor Mana. Hero, the Empire must not 
restore the fortress! Regain the sword's power first, or all is lost!

Hero: What should I do?

Luka: You must become a hero who is worthy of the sword! Enough! Hold the      
   sword up to the seed!

 For a moment, the seed and the sword became one!

 You have sealed the mana  seed with your sword. Now, the Mana power from the
seed will be sent only to  you and your sword. You'll be able to gain power
from the Mana seed wherever  you are! The world has 8 palaces. Visit them all
and receive the power from  them all!

Luka: Take this Spear with you. Mana Guardians used it long ago.

 **Received Spear!**

 It will grow and regain its power just like your Mana Sword. There Must be 
more weapons like this spear in the world. Find them!

Luka: I'll restore you. Want to sve the game? First, head for Gaia's Navel     
 like Jema said. Look for the Underground Palace. To reach Gaia's Navel      
head south through the relm of Pandora.

**Caught!**

**This scene will only happen if you DO NOT read any of the sign posts between
Potos, Water Palace, and Pandora. You also have to talk to Dyluck and his
company outside the water palace. You will then be caught by goblins south of
Nekos Hut.**

(Goblins pop out of hiding)

Hero: Heeelp! Oooh!

(In Goblin Village)

Hero: Heeelp. Ouch!

Goblins: You! Do not move! Just stay still! You are very lucky! You're going   
      to be our main dish!

Hero: Haaaalp! Let me go!

Goblins: You look delicious! ... SHRIEK! Hey! The dancing has already begun!   
      Let's join in!

(Girl creeps up)

 Hey!

 Hey, you!

Girl: What on earth are you doing, you idiot?

Hero: Please help me!

Girl: Shhh. Quiet.

(Pulls Hero out of pot)

Girl: Let's get out of here!

(Back on path)

Hero: I owe you my life. But what are you doing here?

Girl: I've been searching for someone. For a second, I thought you were him...
A case of mistaken identity, huh? I guess I lose...

Hero: Now wait a minute!

Girl: I'm only joking! Look, I'm in a hurry. You'd better get back to your     
 home. Later!

Hero: Hey, wait! Left without even telling me her name...

      talk to the people in the town.

Man in purple: ......

Woman in pink: ......

Green Haired Woman: ...... Don't you ever shut up?

Guard 1: Dyluck's battle squad went up to the witch's castle, but hasn't       
  returned yet.

Guard 2: Most of the townspeople and soldiers have turned into zombies.

Guard 3: Actually, I've also been assigned to the witch hunt. But I didn't     
    want to get hurt, so I pretended to be sick. Don't tell anyone!

(First Room Of Castle: Hall)

Guard: This is Pandora's Castle.

Woman Wearing Blue Hat: Why are people in the southern ruins wearing masks?

Purple Haired Woman: Have you ever seen an enormous tree called the Mana       
                  Tree? Well, I haven't!

    recently.

Nobleman: This is trouble! Sir Elman! Just what do you intend to do? Letís     
       forget we ever had this discussion. How absolutely impertinent!

Elman: Oh, dear... I suppose sheís so selfish because she was raised by a      
    man. Itís been tough since she hasnít had a mother. I wanted to make       
 her happy on her wedding day. Thatís why I arranged for her to marry a       
young nobleman. But now she tells me sheís in love with a soldier!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    troops I sent to fight the witch were captured...

Princess: What? You and dad MADE Dyluck go to the witch's castle?! How DARE    
       you try to drive Dyluck and me apart!

Soldier: How rude!

Princess: Be that way! Let's go, Hero!

Pipe down! And now, presenting an actual and very rare, Sprite Child!

Sprite: Boo, hoo, hoo...Ah! Won't you please help me?

Dwarf: Yes, folks, it's pure tragedy! Weep as you hear his story. This poor    
    child has a 50,000 GP debt to pay off! It's here, working off the debt     
  bit by bit. Oh please, gentle people. Pleas help it! Even 100 GP will       
help.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(If no, or don't have enough)

Dwarf: Geez! A lot of nothing. These poor people just aren't going to cut it!

(If yes)

Sprite: Oh, Joy! Thank you! I'll take that, thank you so much...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(After show, enter room to right of stage)

Sprite: Well, how was that? What an actor I am! That guy was even crying!

Elder: Well, I wasn't too bad myself! Ha! We're going to make a fortune!

(Walk up to them)

Sprite: Aiee! Did you just overhear what we just said?

Elder: P...please forgive us! This child really IS a sprite child. It used to  
     live in the Sprite Forest, but a flood brought it here. I thought I'd     
  help it earn the money to return home...

Sprite: Good idea, huh?

Elder: Hey! You have to apologize, too!

Sprite: Harumph! Okay. I was wrong!

Elder: I'm ashamed of myself. I'll return your money... Sorry!

Sprite: Didn't mean any harm!

(Weaponsmith, Watts)

Watts: Say, show me that sword! It's covered with rust! It'll break in no      
    time! I am Watts, the blacksmith! I'll reforge it for 100 GP! Right,       
 Wait a sec! It's done! I've never seen a sword as fine as this one in       
my life! I hope someday I can forge such a splendid sword! Huh? What         on
earth... My hammer has started to glow... Wait just a minute! That        must
be the Mana Sword! Astonishing! Perhaps the power of the Mana           Sword
has seeped into my hammer! Great! Think I'll try and make an axe        with
this. Come back in a while.

(After leaving Watts' place, or after stage scene)

Hero: What on earth...! Something's coming!

(After defeating Tropicalla)

 Way to go!

 **You got Spear's orb**

(Conversation with Elder)

Elder: Thank you very much!

Sprite: I didn't need your help!

Elder: Hey! Sorry about that. This child received such a shock from drifting   
    here, it lost all its memories. It really is a nice child. It plays        
 tricks on people sometimes though...

Sprite: Come on old timer! Give me a break. Take it easy!

Elder: Tropicalla broke out of a sealed palace. there must be a way into it!   
    Your memory might return if you receive some power from the Mana Seed.

Sprite: What? Really? I'll go now, right now!!!

Elder: Not alone! The palace was buried. There must be tons of monsters by     
    now. Would you be so kind as to accompany this sprite to the palace?       
 What luck! Dod you hear that, little one?

Sprite: Hey, "brother!"

Hero: "Brother?" My NAME is Hero!

Sprite: Okay! Why don't you name me, too. That'll make it easier on you.

 Please name this little sprite!

Sprite: Sprite? What kinda name is that? Like, ah, nice to meet ya!

 **Sprite Joined**

Elder: Good luck! You can get to the palace by way of a hole over there. But   
    there is a lava field which Elinee made to seal the palace. First you      
 have to go to Elinee's castle to ask her to dissolve her seal. Elinee       
used to be a good witch. But...she's not anymore. Go north to the           
Haunted Forest, find her castle and ask her to open the seal.

(Talk to him again)

Elder: Here are a bow and arrows we found along with the little one. Take      
 them.

 **Received Chobin's Bow and arrows!

Elder: That reminds me, Watts the blacksmith was looking for you. Visit his    
    workshop.

(Speak to Watts)

Watts: Well...I tried making an axe, but it's no good. Wonder why... Got a     
    boomerang, huh..? ...Wait! I know...! Try holding this axe! That's it!     
  Mana power in these weapons doesn't work until you hold them! This axe       
is mighty special! You could even smash a boulder with it! Take it          
with you for only 100 GP! There should be more Mana weapons to find.        
Bring them to me! They need to be forged to release any Mana received       
from the orbs. And only I can do it! Now, let me show you a short cut.       
This will make it a lot easier for you!

(Speak with him again)

Watts: Okay! Which one's ready? Which one? Okay! Let's forge it!

Prison Room in Castle)

Soldier: ...

Hero: We've come to help!

Soldier: ...Huh? Ah...

Princess: Where's Dyluck?

Soldier: ...What? Um... Maybe...with the witch?

Hero: It's hopeless. These guys seem like zombies.

Princess: Just like the people in Pandora! You can bet the witch is behind
this!

Soldier: ...you..goin' to... ...witch's lair..? ...go up to... next floor.     
    When 3 people step onto... platform...uh...bridge...

Hero: ...Platform? Let's go see it!

Neko: Meow, I got caught, purr... need anything now? Meow busy travelers!      
   I'll even save the game!

(In Elinee's room)

Elinee: Phew! What noisy little children! See what you get!

(In court yard)

Elinee: (To Dyluck) Allow me the pleasure of sending you to Thanatos!

Princess: Dyluck!! Elinee, what have you done with him?

Elinee: What have I done? Well, I just sent him to the ruins in Pandora. My    
     magic doesn't seem to work too well and I couldn't handle him... But      
  Thanatos wanted him so I sent him there!

Princess: Thanatos?

Elinee: Thanatos is the head of a secret organization that intends to          
     overthrow the kingdom.

Princess: How could you?

Elinee: Hee, hee, hee...He's already dispatched most of the people in          
     pandora. All that's left is for Sir Thanatos to storm the castle from the
ruins. Now...won't you be so kind as to feed yourselves to my cute little
Spikey!

(After defeating Spiky Tiger)

 Way to go!

**Got boomerang's Orb!**

(Speak with Elinee in her room)

Elinee: SHRIEK! Please forgive me! Sorry... the magical herbs that grow in     
     this forest have withered. I have been trading the villagers for          
  Thanatos's herbs. From now on, I'll simply be a normal elderly lady,        
and live peacefully. If you're looking for that other kid, he's at          
the ruins, south of Pandora. You can take what's in the treasure            
chest. I don't need it anymore. The orb in the underground Palace?          
You need to use the magic of ice. But I don't have any more magical         
power left.

(Speak with her again)

Elinee: You can take what's in the treasure chest. I don't need it anymore.

 **Found the Whip!**

(After exiting the castle)

Princess: Dyluck is alive!

 Hero...Can you hear me? Come immediately to the Water Palace!

Hero: It's Luka! NOW what's the matter? I've got to go...

Princess: ... I'm going too! I'm worried anout Dyluck, but I can't save him    
       alone. I'll go with you. In return, you can help rescue Dyluck.

Sprite: Yippie!!! I'm coming along! You can count on me!

**Water Palace Returned**

(Return to the Water Palace and speak with Luka)

Luka: I'll restore you. Want to save the game? Undine, the elemental of      
water, lives in a cave behind a waterfall. It's east of the steps       leading
to this palace. You've got to go find her! Her seal on this       palace has
failed, and I fear she is in great danger!

(Cave East of Palace steps)

Hero: What the...?

(After defeating Tonpole/Biting Lizard)

**Got Glove's Orb!**

(Room to the North)

Undine: Thank you! I am Undine. My power is your reward. I'll give you 2       
 kinds of magic. Princess can use my recovery and defense magic.         Sprite
can use my battle magic.

Hero: And me?

Undine: Your Mana Sword will one day become more powerful than any magic. You  
      can receive an Elemental's power, such as Ice Saber, on your sword!      
  Princess can cast Ice Saber on your weapon to turn enemies into        
snowmen! And this! Take this with you. It is one of the Mana weapons.

**Received pole Dart!**

Undine: Call me anytime!

**Gained Undine's powers!**

Sprite: No one can stop ME now!

(Back in Palace)

Luka: Use Undine's power to stop the lava in the underground palace. Crystal   
   Orbs are made to respond or react to an Elemental's power.

 This is the stage room...

(Gnome comes through door)

 You can't barge in here! We gnomes won't allow it!

Sprite: What a wind bag!

Gnome: Little brat!

Sprite: Take this!

(Slaps Gnome)

Gnome: This is an outrage! Oh, oh... I'm out of here!

Princess: Look! Back there!

(After defeating Fire Gigas)

 Way to go!

 **Got Axe's Orb!**

Gnome: Phew! Thanks! That oaf was ALWAYS bugging me. Forgive me. I used you    
    to get some relief.

Sprite: Dolt! Serve ME and maybe I'll forgive you. Otherwise, I'll throw you   
     to my servant, Hero.

Gnome: Aieee! No! Let me be your servant!

Hero: HEY! Who're YOU calling a servany?

Gnome: Oh dear! Anyway, call me anytime, anywhere. Now, close your eyes...     
    Both you and your wife may summon me.

Princess: What?! ME married to...THAT?!

Sprite: I like your style, Gnome!

Gnome: Well, that's that! Be seeing you!

**Pandora/Ruins Revisited**

(House East of Item Shop)

Man: Grandma has grown senile and won't say a thing. Now my granddaughter      
  Phanna is acting funny too! What's wrong with them?

(Inside Castle)

King: What a nightmare! The people in my country are acting like zombies! Oh,  
    I have a headache! I'm going back to my room for a nap.

(Inside Room)

King:  This is a tragedy! We absolutely CANNOT allow the Empire to invade at   
    a time like this!

Queen: Oh, dear... why don't you try to calm down a bit?

(Pandora, talk to Phanna Blue Hair)

Princess: Huh? Phanna! What's the matter?

Phanna: ......

(Phanna disappears)

Hero: She disappeared! Let's check out the ruins down there!

**Ruins**

Phanna: ...Princess. I'm going on a one-way trip! Pretty neat,huh?

Princess: Come on,Phanna! Snap out of it!

Phanna: Shaddap! Stop bothering me!

Princess: Phanna! Phanna! Hey, you! Make room! Unless we hurry, Phanna's a     
       goner. Dyluck's probably here too!

(Castle Ruins)

Hero: Watch out!

Guard 1,2,3,4,5,6: ......

Hero: Thanatos, I presume?

Thanatos: Indeed. I know all about you. You're no ordinary fool if you can     
     beat Elinee.

Princess: Hand over Phanna and Dyluck, and make the people of the town as      
    they were!

Thanatos: Ho, ho, ho... what a spirited young lass! I suppose THIS is Phanna?  
        Too bad, huh? I've drained her energy, and now she's my faithful       
   servant. I need life energy to create a new, peaceful world,          
understand? Soon the Mana Fortress will bring the people of the           world
together! Surrender, and you can serve me. Don't, and you'll           end up
like HIM!

Princess: Dyluck!!

Thanatos: He was a tough one. I see Elinee had a hard time with him, too. He   
       must be receiving some kind of special power. Great find, huh? And      
    you can join him now!

(Pit opens, party falls through)

Thanatos: It will be glad too have you there. Your energy will be a feast to   
       it!

(After defeating Evil Wall)

Way to go!

**Got Bow's Orb!**

(Back on Pedestal)

Thanatos: Oh..! So, you are the ones with the Mana Sword! The villagers are    
      yours, but not these two!

Princess: Wait! Ah! Dyluck! Phanna!

Thanatos: 'Till we meet again! Mwa, ha, ha!

Green Haired Woman: My head feels like a ton of bricks...

Guard: What have I been doing all this time? Please inform the castle of       
this.

Green Haired Man: Where on earth is this?

Purple Haired Woman: Darn. I was doing my dishes!

Woman in Green: Hello, Princess! Where are we? Is Phanna here?

Hero: Jema!

Jema: Oh, Hero! Sorry, I was spacing out! Thanatos was one of their best men.  
    They must be desperate to get Mana. But why was he taking the life         
 energy away from the people here? The Empire only needs power from the      
seeds, not from the people... There's something...curious about            
Thanatos... I've got a bad feeling about him. Anyway, let's get out of      
here! Return to Luka's place. I'm off to the Underground Palace!

**Pandora After Ruins**

Purple Haired Woman: Everyone's back to normal. Thank you!

Man in Purple: Feels like I just had a dream...

Guard: This is Pandora.

Woman in Pink: Thank you very much!

Green Haired Woman: ...... Don't you ever shut up? I don't want to talk to     
               you!

(House East of Inn)

Woman in Pink: The master has been moping about ever since you took off,       
        miss.

Elman: Princess! You're back!

Princess: Dad! I'm not coming back until I find Dyluck!

(House East of Item Shop)

Old Man: Oh, no... Phanna, oh, Phanna...

Old Woman: Oh, my dear Phanna... Help her, please!

**Pandora Castle**

Guards 1,3: The king is in his room.

Nobleman: I didn't believe it when Jema said you were going to save our        
  country!

Queen: The King has shaken off his deep depression!

Maid: Thank you. Please come back. We all welcome you here in Pandora.

King: You did it, Hero! Brightness is returning to normal everywhere! What     
 Jema said about the Mana Sword and you was true! We must now part with      
our treasure..! We've guarded these for centuries for you, wielder of       the
Mana Sword.

**Water Palace/Gaia's Navel**

(Luka's Palace)

Luka: The Mana Seed of Water was stolen! I couldn't do anything about it.      
   They must have done it when Undine was in danger and out of power. The      
water tells me they took it to Gaia's Navel, or... deeper. I don't          
think they are from the Empire. Please! Hurry and bring it back!

(Gaia's Navel)

Elder: What could make a hole THIS big?

Jema: The thieves are below. Next, they'll hit the Underground Palace. I'll    
   handle the Palace. You check this out! Keep alert! We don't know what       
lies below!

(On Thieves Ship)

 Aha! The Water Seed! How'd you get in here? You realize we can't let you
leave...

Boss: Welcome! We, the Scorpion army, will rule the world!

Boys: Check it out!

Boss: Shaddap! WE took the Water Seed... ...to complete our Super Deluze      
Robot! We call it "Kilroy..."

Boys: Hubba, hubba!

Boss: Do it!

Boys: Aye aye, Sir!

(Run into next room)

Boss: Go get them now! See ya, farewell,  good bye children! Aiee! What's      
wrong?

Boys: Too much energy... it's out of control!

Boss: Nooo! Remove the seed! Use the auxillary power!

(After defeating Kilroy)

Way to go!

**Got Javelin's Orb!**

Boss: NUTS! Oh, well... See ya, bye!

**Recovered Mana Seed!**

 Let's bring it back to the Water Palace!

(Speak with Elder)

Elder: You're safe! Somehow you seem older... Jema took off with some       
Pandoran soldiers.

**Water Palace**

Hero: Luka!

Luka: Get out of here fast!

Geshtar: Who have we here? I'm Geshtar, of the Empire! Hand over that seed or  
       Luka's had it!

Luka: DON'T!!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

**You have 2 options, Hand it over, or Run**

*(Hand it over)*

Geshtar: Atta boy!

OR

*(Run)*

Geshtar: Idiot!

Hero: Ouch! Can't move!

(Geshtar takes seed)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Geshtar: So glad the seed's here. Too bad we have to break thre seal!

Luka: Stop it!

Geshtar: Well, nice to have met you all!

(In pool)

Geshtar: As a little gift I'd like you to have my little pet! Remember to      
   feed him!

(After defeating Jabberwocky)

Way to go!

**Got Bow's Orb!**

(Speak with Jema)

Jema: The Imperial forces have drawn back. We managed to defeat their          
  monsters in Pandora, too. I got this from one of them. You should have      
it.

**Got Whip's Orb!**

Jema: Hero, you're running out of time..! I'll return home, and stop the       
   Empire there. Only a restored Mana Sword can beat the Fortress. Talk to     
 the Cannon Travel man in Potos. He'll send you to the Upper Land.

Luka: Now! Use your sword to restore the seal put on the seed!

**Received the Seed's power!**

Luka: Pure evil seeks the seed now. You must hurry and revive the Mana Sword.  
    Go to the Lofty Mountains and see Sage Joch to learn about real            
 courage. Then go to all eight of the world's palace's and reactivate        
all the seeds! You will be able to receive Mana power from the seeds        
once you reactivate them!

Jema: I have business with Sage Luka. Bye for now.

Moogles 1,2,3: Kupi! Kupoppo! Walk the seasons from spring to winter, spring   
            again and we can enter...

Little Moogles 1,2: Kupi! Kupoppo! Walk the seasons from spring to winter,     
                 spring again and we can enter...

 That was from the right!

Grandpa: Empire's men came and undid the Wind seal... A bright flash stunned   
      me! The others... they're...

Princess: This is awful!

Sprite: No! They must have escaped!

Grandpa: I...suppose so... Uwa, ha, ha!

Sprite: Graaandpa!

Grandpa: Gwa, ha! Okay, okay! Tyke! We sprites are a part of Mana. That beast  
       couldn't have beat us! But humans are breaking seals, and releasing     
    monsters... ...which are consuming our source of life...Mana!

Sprite: ...I'll put a stop to that immediately! These two can help!

Hero: ...

Grandpa: I'd go with you if I could see better! At least take Sylphid, the     
      wind elemental, with you!

Sylphid: you called, Master?

Grandpa: These young people are now your master!

Sylphid: It is so!

**Gained Sylphid's powers!**

Grandpa: Use "Analyzer" to learn what magic works on crystal orbs. Use your    
      magic on the orb in this forest to open the way to Matango! It's         
   said a white dragon lives in a cave north of Matango. The dragon can        
 help you! Go, now, and worry not about me!

Mushroom 2: Unlike others of our kind, we're peaceful!

Mushroom 3: I'm sure King Truffle can help you!

Mushroom 4: We say "MATANGO" to greet each other!

Mushroom 5: The forest has become a dangerous place...

Mushroom 6: We aren't equipped to fight monsters.

Mushroom 7: "GONTMA" means goodbye!

Mushroom 8: Not leaving yet, I hope!

Mushroom 9: We aren't equipped to fight monsters.

Mushroom 10: This is Fung Castle, home of King Truffle.

Mushroom 11: I'm sure King Truffle can help you!

Shopkeeper: What'll it be? Anything else? Be seeing you.

(Inside Fung Castle)

Mushroom 12: The King's inside.

Mushroom 13: This man's told me allabout you.

Watts: Whew! I thought you'd already left! Okay, which one's ready?

Mushroom 14: Get the King's permission first!

Innkeeper: One night is 50 GP. Want to stay?

(Throne Room)

Mushroom 15: I saw a white dragon! They're supposed to be extinct!

Mushroom Guard 1: Our ancestors once rode flying animals. White dragons, I     
             believe! Amazingly, a white dragon was spotted yesterday in       
           a cave to the north!

Mushroom Guard 2: Legend has it that a Mana Beast took on the Fortress.        
          Animals similar to Mana beasts live in our world! Sometimes          
        you see them flying through the woods.

Nobleman: King Truffle is a splendid ruler! However, he's reckless!

Truffle: Here at last! The legendary knight!

Hero: ..?

Truffle: You don't think we have legends here like everywhere else?!

                  Riding a white dragon, and
                   weilding The Sword, they
                    shall save the world...

Truffle: That's you guys, right? I knew it right away! Just yesterday one of   
      my people saw a white dragon fighting a huge snake! Use the 1st          
   floor exit on the right for the cave. Palace? I know where it is,           
but first find the cave! Then I'll tell you how to reach the palace!         
Oh, and there's something upstairs for you!

(Speak with him again)

 THIS is the legendary white dragon? Its parents must have been beaten by  that
serpent...

Princess: it won't make it if we leave it here. It's way too big for us to     
     carry! Let's ask Truffle.

(Back in Throne Room)

Truffle: He'll only slow you down...so I'll raise him!

Nobleman: K...King Truffle!

Truffle: QUIET, you! You three get going. I'll take good care of him! By the   
      way, how do you like the name "Flammie?"

 ( Ugh! Not bad! )

Truffle: Hang on..! I sound like an idiot! You'd agree with me whether you     
    liked the name or not! So let's call him "Flammie" and be done with        
 it! Cannon Travel is open again in the forest to the south. You'll         
find the Fire Palace somewhere in the Desert of Kakkara.

(Speak with him again)

Truffle: Hellooo!! Flammie is doing fine!

Nobleman: You ARE the knight! A vile serpent took our last king.

Mushroom 15: I saw a white dragon! They're supposed to be extinct!
             But I've seen 'em bigger. This one might be a runt!

Mushroom Guard 1: Our ancestors once rode flying animals. White dragons, I     
               believe! There really WAS one!

Rudolph: Master! Santa Clause! Are you all right?

Santa: Oh!..Rudolph! Sorry to have worried you! I'm fine, now! I turned into   
Frost Gigas because kids just no longer believed in me. When Mana fades, kids  
lose their hopes and dreams. I wanted so badly to bring back all of their
dreams... Then I heard that Mana Trees grow instantly, and become huge! I set
off to find a Mana Seed, thinking I could grow a huge Christman tree! But it
was the SEED that changed my body, and turned me into that nonster! If the
power of Mana is abused, it can be VERY dangerous! Here, take the Fire Seed.
You need it, right?

Guard 2: Beyond is the Gold Tower. No one may enter.

Old Man 2: King Manmon sealed off the Light Palace, at the edge of town. The
tower key was stolen by a spy from Tasnica. Caught him in Southtown. But the
key was never found! What's in that tower?

(Item Shop, North West House)

Shopkeeper: What'll it be? Anything else? Be seeing you.

(Watts South West House)

Watts: He, he! No one was using this place, so... Okay! Which one's ready?

(House East of Watts)

Woman: Welcome! What am I saying? I don't want to deal with you.

Green Haired Woman: I'm jealous. Everyone's moved to the resort up north.

(Inn, East of Item Shop)

Innkeeper: One night is 200 GP. Want to stay? Save your game?

(Floor 2)

Green Haired Woman 1: What matters in life is...GOLD!!

Green Haired Woman 2: We came to see if Manmon could give us some gold...

(Floor 3)

Old Man: Alchemists can turn rocks into gold using Mana... But first you have
to learn alchemy, don't ya!

Maid: Ha! This is the world's richest place!

Manmon: Money...MONEY! And it's all MINE!

make gold! My power should not be used by anyone but you! Take my powers,
before evil engulfs us all!

**Gained Lumina's powers!**

**Received the Seed's power!**

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

*(Sage Joch's Cave)*

Jehk: Go away! The Sage is out!

All: Surprise...

Jehk: Sage Joch went to the Moon Palace. It floats eerily in the Sea of Wonders
at Kakkara Desert's end...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

*(Karon's Ferry, Entrance to Moon Palace)*

Karon: Welcome to Karon's ferry. Next stop: Moon Palace. There's a lot of
nothing in the palace. Don't get lost! The boat's a bit unsteady. I'll... wait
here!

(Inside Moon Palace)

Luna: I, Luna the moon spirit, have awaited you. So sad this place has
grown...but enough! Take with you my powers! GO! Mana is fading...

**Gained Luna's powers!**

**Received the Seed's power!**

**Tasnica Castle**

(Sage Joch's Cave)

Jehk: Jehk: Go away! The Sage is out!

All: What luck...

Jehk: Sage Joch has left for Tasnica. The Republic's to the west of here.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Tasnica Castle)

Guard 1: This is the castle of Tasnica.

Jema: Hero! I hardly recognized you!

Hero: What's up?

Jema: There's an Imperial spy in the castle. He's after the King! Beware!

Guards 2,3,4,5,6,7,8: Where's the spy?

(Throne Room)

Guard 1: I'm watching the King.

Guard 2: I'm watching the King.

King: Who are you? You must be spies!

Hero: Wait a minute...

Guard: Silence, spy.

King: Take them away!

Guard: WAIT! He's not the King..!

King(?): Ha! Using the king, I could have ruined this realm... But...I've
failed. Take THIS!

Hero: What've you done?

King(?): They're probably at the castle entrance! Think I'll have YOU destroy
the king!

Hero: Think again!

(Speak with King while fighting Dark Stalker)

The King's unconcious.

(After defeating Dark Stalker)

 Sir... Snap out of it!!

King: ...oooh...where am I? What happened?


Jema: Well done! Your Highness! The Mana Knight has beaten the spy!

King: I can't believe such a thing could happen. I was worried when I heard
some kid had the sword, but now I'm not. Allow me to give you this!

**Got Sword's Orb!**

Jema: You have learned much, but you can't rest yet. You still have to learn
what true courage is. If the Empire is being this aggressive, it means they
almost have the Fortress. I'm off to fight the Empire wherever I can. You must
now find the Sage Joch. From him you'll learn true courage.

(Jema leaves, speak with King)

King: Jema's studying the power of Mana.

Guard 1: No more Imperial spies'll get in here!

Guard 2: Jema was the commander of the King's troops. His best friend was the
hero, Serin. When Serin fell in battle, Jema stepped down and never fought
again...

Guard 3: Meria's really making a name for himself.

Guard 4: We used to have a strong navy. But now only our sandship is in
service.

Guard 5: Something evil about that Dark Stalker...

Guard 6: The Republic and Pandora are allies.

Guard 7: We're on the brink of war.

Guard 8: The Emporer's after our King!

(Path South of Throne Room)

Man in Purple: The Empire'll never take this castle!

Woman in Blue: You're in the heart of thecastle.

Shopkeeper: What'll it be? Anything else? Be seeing you.

Little Boy: Hey everybody, it's the Mana Knight! Hey!

Guard 9: We'll smash the Empire!

(Path West of Throne Room)

Guard 10: What's the Emporer up to?

Guard 11: Jema's still the realm's finest warrior. His only equal was the
legendary warrior, Serin.

(Entrance Room)

Old Woman: Hey, haven't I seen you somewhere?

Guard 12: Mana's power is waning...

Guard 13: Serin, our hero taught us to live in the castle. We all moved in 15
years ago.

Green Haired Woman: Hey big boy! Heard you saved the King..!

Woman in Pink Dress: This castle's like a big town.

Old Man: A sunken continent rests under the coral. The Empire's trying to raise
it. Only the world's Mana seeds, which seal the continent, stand in their way.

Girl: A tiny little sprite!

Sprite: YOU'RE the tiny one.

**Test of Courage**

(Sage Joch's Cave)

Jehk: Hey! Get out of here!

Hero: Not in, AGAIN?!

Jehk: His Sageness will see you.

(Joch appears)

Jehk: Before you sits his reverence, Joch! I'm his disciple, Jehk.

Joch: ZQYNDRA, QU...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jehk: Master speaks in the old tongue! Allow me! You must undergo a test.
Conquer the ones within, and you'll find...courage. Will you try?
        (Yes , No)

(If Yes)

Jehk: Right. Good luck...

(End of Joch's Cave)

Jehk: It begins. Win, and you pass the test...

(After defeating your Shadows)

We won! Where's Joch?

Jehk: Well done! When you put your hearts together, nothing can stop you! You
will master the Sword by joining courage, knowledge, and love. I am Joch. The
old man was an illusion.

Hero: Why didn't you help us SOONER?!

Joch: You weren't ready yet. Your ears could hear, but not your heart. I waited
for you to find your inner strength. Go, now. The E,porer seeks to raise the
sunken land... Atp the coral you'll find the Tree Palace. Below lies the Mana
Fortress. Something evil seeks the seals. HURRY! Good Luck!

#############################################################################
**Tree/Mana/Grand Palace**

(As party enters Tree Palace)

Emporer: So glad to see you! You're going to like this! The ancient continent
will surface once I've broken all the palace seals. Once I break this last
seal, the Mana Fortress will rise! Too bad you won't be around! Who wants the
job?

Sheex: I owe them one since the Republic! Leave it to me!

Hero: You? You're the Dark Stalker?!

Sheex: Behold! Have a taste of my true power!

(Sheex transforms into Aegagropilon)

Sheex: Ha! The underworld gives us its strength. I'll squash you! The contract
we signed with the underworld gives us control of THIS world! Yo keep humans
under my control, we're reviving the Mana Fortress! Now your time is over...

(After defeating Aegagropilon)

Way to go!

**Got Spear's Orb!**

Sheex: I can't believe this! Uwaa...!

The stage's just above us. Let's go!

(In Alter Room)

The seal's melting! We're not going to make it! No good! It's too late!

(Dryad appears)

Get out of here, NOW! I am Dryad, the tree spirit. The seals on the world's
seeds have been broken... The continent that sleeps beneath this palace will
soon rise. Leave now!

Princess: What about you?

Dryad: I wasn't able to save this palace...I'll go down with it!

Sprite: Idiot! What will that serve? Come! Help us save Mana!

Dryad: Thanatos sealed my "Mana" magic. I won't be of much help...

Princess: Don't worry! Let's go!

Hero: Hurry!

Dryad: Well...okay. I'll do what I can.

**Gained Dryad's powers!**

 Oh, no! It's rising! Call Flammie!

Jema: Hero! The sunken continent has surfaced. The Fortress is there! I've
brought troops here to keep the Empire from taking the Mana Fortress. There'a
an ancient city under this Grand Palace. We must get into it! Emporer Vandole
is working for the underworld. This place is full of monsters! Though your
sword isn't fully powered, you need it to stop the Emporer! We'll fight off the
Imperial troops here. You caych up with those soldiers!

Soldier 1: Be careful!

(If you try to enter Palace through main, front door)

We can't go any further! look for another way!

*(Inside Mana Palace)*

(After defeating Hydra)

Way to go!

**Got Whip's Orb!**

Fanha: Look who's here! Prepare too...

Emporer: Enough, Fanha! We've no time for these children. Think what the Mana
Fortress will do to them! Let's go!

Fanha: ...Ha!...coming... Oh, I'll get you little beasts yet!

(Bright Light blinds party)

Hero: I can't see anything! Let's go!

(Room with Watts, 2 people)

Man in Green: Keep going! We'll secure this place.

Guard: Learned a secret code from an enemy. It's "Red-Blue-Yellow-Green." What
is it?

Watts: Okay! Which one's ready?

(Party meets with Boss, Boys)

Boss: Hey, you!

Boys: You!

Boss: I did some nosing around...seems this kid is the "Legendary Knight!" Haw,
ha! What a joke! How could YOU have found that blade? Hand it over!

Boys: Yeah! We're gonna be rich, Boss!

Boss: Shaddap and go get it!

Super Special Deluxe Robot, Type 2...with turbo! "Kettle Kin!"

(After defeating Kettle Kin)

Way to go!

**Got Bow's Orb!**

Boss: Too...strong! He's the REAL Knight! What idiot said he wasn't the Knight?
Let's scram!

Boys: Yeah!

From 7 Orbs: Heard a distant sound...

(Party sees Emporer on Alter steps)

 ? ...looks kind of odd!

Sprite: The Emperor! But he's..! What the..? Hey! Now there's an exit behind
the stage!

(Room North)

Fahna: You made it!

Hero: Did YOU beat the Emperor?

Fanha: I'm afraid so! We'd rule the world if we had the Mana Fortress!

Hero; "We?" Who else is here?

(Thanatos walks up to party)

Hero: Thanatos!

Thanatos: Aha! Long time no see, little one!

Princess: Where is Dyluck? Is he safe?

Thanatos: Of course! He's just about to become my new body!

Princess: What are you up to?

Fanha: Never you mind! Now, Thanatos, to the Fortress! Revenge is SO sweet! Bye
bye forever!

(After defeating Hexas)

Way to go!

**Got Whip's Orb!**

Fanha: What the..? Thanatos! Why?!!

Hero: Geshtar!

Geshtar: ......

Thanatos: Mwa, ha... is it Geshtar, or..? Using my ancient magic, I've created
a living...fighting machine!

Hero: How utterly evil...

(After defeating Mech Rider)

Way to go!

**Got Spear's Orb!**

Hero: They activated the Mana Fortress! This place is sinking!

(Tree Palace, After Fortress Resurrection)

Krissie: Everyone okay? Take care of yourselves. Here's a little boost.

Sergo: Yahoo! Hey! It's my friend from the Sandship! The ocean's suddenly grown
calm! And Meria's had a complete change of heart!

Man: Thanatos's bunch double-crossed the Emporer. What are they up to?

Guard: Some of my men are inside.

Neko: Finally on your way? Good luck! Have everything you need? Anything else?
Be seeing you.

Jema: Hero! You okay? We barely got away! We've failed to stop the Fortress's
revival. The Mana Beast will appear and crash against the Fortress any minute!
It'll cause the destruction of this world. But we mustn't give up yet. Sage
Joch has spoken of the Mana Tree and Pure Land at the wprld's end. Usually,
it's hidden under a dense cloud barrier. But the Fortress is consuming the last
of the World's Mana...and the barrier has surely weakened. You just might be
able to land there... The seeds that have powered up your sword are a small
part of the Mana Tree... Find the Tree itself, and you could instantly revive
the Mana Sword!

Hero: We have no choice, we must find that place...

Jema: It's a forbidden place. No one's been there. Beware!

(Inside Tree Palace)

Mara: So sad that the Emporer was betrayed...

Phanna: Princess! I said some awful things...

Princess: Forget it! You weren't...yourself!

Phanna: I guess I was jealous of you two... Thanatos noticed, and used it to
his advantage.

Princess: Phanna, look at me! ...Friends, okay?

Phanna: Princess! Thanks! Hope you see Dyluck soon!

Girl: The Emporer's been stopped, but the world's finished...

(In Alter Room)

Nothing's happening!

**Pure Land**

...I've been waiting. Come here, quick!

(After defeating Dragon Worm)

Way to go!

**Got Axe's Orb!**

**Got Boomerang's Orb!**

Gate 3: Continue on. Shall I save your game?

(At top of Mountain, overlooking Valley)

Hero: Where are we?

Princess: Look! The Mana Tree!

Sprite: We're here! Let's revive the Mana Sword!

Princess: It's like a dream. Can we REALLY be here? ...Hero...We've done it!
I'm so glad I met you... and you too, Sprite!

Sprite: I'm so lucky I found such good help!

Hero: So mush has happened... We never gave up hope... And we have just one
more job to do. Ask the Mana Tree to revive the sword, then we can beat the
Mana Fortress!

(Voice): Ha! Now see the power of the Mana Fortress!

(Bright light flashes)

Sprite: Heeelp! Hey... you guys okay?

Princess: Heeelp!

(Party lands in front of Mana Tree)

(Voice): Hero... Hero... Wake up!

Hero: Where are we? There's no Mana Tree...

Sprite: What the... After all we've been through! It's THANATOS'S doing!

Princess: ...what's going to happen now?

Mana Tree: ...Hero... It is I, the Mana Tree. The Mana Fortress is using up  
most of the world's Mana. Soon all the beasts of will be transformed into one
giant creature. Only the great Mana Beast can bring back Mana. But the Beast
has little control over its rage. If it were to attack the fortress, the world
would be finished. The only way to avoid this is to beat it using the Mana
Sword. The sword can only be used by people of the Tribe of Mana. Your father,
the legendary knight, Serin should be standing here, now. He was badly wounded
15 years ago by the Emporer, but vowed to stop him. On his way   to a final
showdown, he fell and never got up. That was in Potos.

Hero: You mean the ghost I saw by the falls was my dad?

Mana Tree: That was your father, Serin. I was his wife...and am your mother. We
are of the Mana Tribe. The women of our kind become the Tree, and the
protectors of the world. The men wield the Sword, and protect against evil! You
must stop the Fortress. Mana is weak, and its shields are down. With my last
energy, I will summon the power of the Seeds of Mana...

**Sword power at maximum!**

Mana Tree: ...Hero... I'm sorry. I haven't been much of a mother to you...

Hero: Mother! Is that REALLY you? Please..! ,,,mother? Why won't you talk to
me? Mother!!

Princess: Hero...

Hero: Mother...my...

Sprite: ...this is nuts! Snap out of it! She's asked us to do something!
Princess doesn't have a mother, and neither do I!

Hero: ...sorry... I'll be okay. I've got a lot to live up to, and we've a big
job ahead.

Sprite: Now you're talking number one!

Princess: Yeah! I feel like I just met my mom too! I know she's in my heart!

Sprite: All right! Let's do it! Yeah!

#############################################################################
**Final Battle**

(After defeating Buffy)

Way to go!

(In Room, Party meets Thanatos and Dyluck)

Princess: Dyluck!

Thanatos: For ages I have been searching...for a human with the power to
conquer this world... ...one born in the shadow of darkness, and raised in the
light of Mana. Dyluck is the one. I cannot wait any longer. My body has grown
weak! It is time! Using his body I will take the Mana Fortress, and rule the
world!

Princess: Dyluck! Resist him with all your might!

Thanatos: Uhrg...ahh...kack! I must...hurry...This body is...breaking up!
H...help me...guhuf...let...m...maieee!

Princess: Dyluck! Snap out of it!

Dyluck: ...Uhhn...Where am I? ...

 Guwa ha ha!

Thanatos:  Guwa ha ha! How good this new body feels! I grow strong!

Princess: Liar! You can't just STEAL someone's body!!

Thanatos: My dear, I can do anything I want! Ha, ha-huh..? Can't...move!

(Dyluck's voice)

Princess...can you hear me? It's me, Dyluck... He's too strong...I'm finished,
but I can help you... Thanatos is an ancient sorcerer who sold his heart to the
underworld. Though his life force is eternal, he hasn't his own body. His life
force is growing darker. He feeds on hatred and destruction!

Thanatos: Ooh! Silence!

Dyluck: Princess: I'm so sorry I won't see you again. But I have to do this.

Dyluck: You're Hero, right? Take care of Princess...

Princess: Dyluck! Stop it! Please! Dyluck! STOP IT!!

Thanatos: Ugrrrrrrr!

(Thanatos changes into Dark Lich)

Thanatos: I forbid this! Just when I was to be reborn! I...must withdraw! Give
me your bodies! GUWAA!

(After defeating Dark Lich)

The seal on Dryad's "Mana" magic is gone!

Princess: Ooh..! ...Dyluck!!!

Hero: Marle... What the..?! Let's get out of here!

Sprite: Uwaa!

Hero: What is is?

Sprite: ...whew..! I'm okay...just dizzy! We have to get out of here, NOW!

(Outside)

Sprite: It's a Mana Beast!

Princess: Isn't it a Flammie?

Hero: I guess Flammies were once Mana Beasts...

Sprite: Hurry, or the Mana Beast will ruin the world! Come on! Do it!

Hero: ...I can't... I won't hurt a Mana Beast! I can't! They are only trying to
restore Mana! And......Sprite! If you use up all your Mana power, you'll
disappear!

Princess: Oh NO!

Hero: Right... I can't go through with this...

Sprite: ...... Whaddaya mean? I'm NOT gonna kick the bucket! My world is
seperate from this one. It just means I won't... see you again. ok, if we don't
stop the Mana Beast, your world is finished, right? Everything will perish.
Trees...animals...PEOPLE! That must not happen! YOU have the Mana Sword, YOU
must save this world... YOU have no choice! You made a vow to your mother, the
Mana Tree, right? I'll be okay.

Hero: All right... ...you're sure?

Sprite: OF COURSE! Later, Princess!

(In Final Battle)

 Sprite: Take the Sword! We'll cast Mana Magic, then Mana Sword will appear!

(After Final Battle, Hero, Princess on a snowy Cliff)

Hero: !Sprite! ...he's...gone! I didn't even say goodbye.

Princess: ...Sprite... Sprite... I'll never forget you! Ever!

Hero: ...Me too! ...

Princess: ...and Dyluck, too... But we must be strong... The Mana Beast is
turning into...snow..!

THE END!
