Version 1.0 - This is the first version of the FAQ, and there isn't much more 
              to say than that. Expect the usual errors and such that come with
              first versions of guides, but hopefully, all will go well. In the
              worst-case scenario however, feel free to contact me if you 
              notice that something is wrong.

+ I. Introduction +
+++++++++++++++++++

Considering that Disgaea is among my favorite games of all time, I was bound to
go off and write an FAQ for the game sooner or later. But sadly, everything 
about the game has been covered already in terms of the gameplay. Thankfully,
no one has bothered to write down the game script yet. 

Disgaea is among one of the funniest, most quotable games of all time. As such,
why not have a document featuring all of those quotes? The following guide will
feature the game's script, from the intro all the way to the endings, and even
all of the secret maps sans the Cave of Trials (which has no script within 
it). 

Note: there are two different script presentations in Disgaea. The 
first is when the characters interact while on a map. These sections are much
more detailed by the game and this guide. The second presentation is when
the camera simply shows a picture, and the characters interact with each 
other through their lines. For these cases, you may notice that the guide
is less detailed, as it should be. The characters aren't interacting in
full, just with their lines. Furthermore, if a battle has no script attached
to it, then I'm simply going to write "No script". Writing "The party fights
the battle" is not only pointless, but is also a given. 

Format-wise, the guide should be common sense. It should read exactly like a 
play, and will encompass most of what the game's characters say; however, there
are some parts of the game that add nothing in terms of new lines and will not
be covered over and over. These include some of the castle characters who say
the same things after the tutorial section of the game ends. But on the bright
side, some castle characters say new things with each chapter. The beginning 
of each chapter will show what each character says should Laharl speak to them,
but thankfully, those sections are all short. The real meat of the script 
comes before and after each battle, and the beginning/ending of each episode,
much like in Final Fantasy Tactics.

Got all that? Good. Let's do this.

+ III. Epilogue +
+++++++++++++++++

[Camera shows a view of the Netherworld]

[Words appear on screen as a voice narrates]

King Krichevskoy, the mighty ruler of the Netherworld...

His long reign came to an abrupt end as the news of his death spread throughout
the dark land. 

Ambitious demons rose one after another to seize the opportunity, and thus 
began the age of turbulence and anarchy.

Two years later...

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows a view of a castle, followed by a view of a dark room with all
lights off]

Voice: Prince.

[Flash of white light comes over the screen]

Voice: Prince, wake up.

[More white flashes come over the screen, followed by light coming over the 
room]

[The room then lights up due to a fire being started within it; multiple
weapons are scattered throughout the room, and in the middle lies an opened
casket with a young boy sleeping in it]

[Girl takes a few steps toward the bed, then puts her hand on her hips]

Girl: This brat just won't wake up.
Girl: Well, if that's the case... there's only one thing left to do.

[Girl pulls out a gun and points it toward the boy]

Boy: ...What fool dares awaken me, the great Laharl?

[Boy sits up in the casket, blinks a few times, then shakes his head]

Girl: Prince! I'm glad you're still alive.

[Girl puts the gun away, and Laharl then stands up to face her]

Laharl: Who said I was dead? I was just taking a nap.

[Laharl looks around]

Laharl: Anyways... Why are all those weapons behind you?

[Girl looks behind her at the weapons]

Girl: Well, I was having a hard time waking you up...
Laharl: Are you sure you weren't trying to kill me instead?
Girl: No... Ah... I mean, yes. I just wanted to wake you up.
Laharl: Hmph... Whatever. 
Laharl: ...so, what is it?
Laharl: You better have a good reason for waking me up.
Girl: Oh, yeah.

[Girl lifts her hands up]

Girl: Big news. Your father, King Krichevskoy, has died.
Laharl: He what...!? When!?

[Girl puts her hands back down]

Girl: Two years ago.

[Laharl turns to his left, then closes his eyes]

Laharl: ...wait a second.

[Laharl turns back toward the girl]

Laharl: So... you're telling me that I've been sleeping for over 2 years?
Girl: Yup.

[Laharl looks at the girl in shock]

Laharl: "Yup"...!? Why didn't you wake me up earlier!?

[Girl leans back and puts her hands behind her head]

Girl: Excuse me, but what do you think I've been doing all this time?
Girl: The Netherworld has gone to hell while you were sleeping.

[Girl looks to her right]

Girl: It's not my fault if some other demon steals the title of Overlord.
Laharl: What...? Have they forgotten whose title they are trying to steal!?

[Laharl turns to his left and crosses his arms with a smile]

Laharl: Hmhmhm...
Laharl: How bold of them! I shall show no mercy... for I am Laharl, the 
        rightful heir to the throne!
Laharl: Haaaahahahaha!!!!

[Girl walks toward the casket]

Girl: Your humble vassal, Etna, will accompany you.

[Etna joins the party]

[Fade to black]

+ IV. Episode 1: Prince of the Netherworld +
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

[Camera shows the Episode 1 title screen]

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows Laharl standing in the middle of his room; his room is inside of
a castle, which consists of his bedroom, the throne room, the courtyard, and
the main hall]

[Laharl speaks to the members of the castle within the throne room and 
courtyard]

Goleck: All the royal vassals left the castle shortly after the King died.
Laharl: Even with me still around?
Etna: Well, you were sleeping. They must have forgotten about you.

Manty: That's just like you, Prince, taking a 2-year nap.
Laharl: I only planned on napping for about 10 days...
Laharl: Hmmm... Something's not right.

Dratti: Oh well, look like I wasted my time digging that grave for you<3
Laharl: I'll put YOU in that grave instead!

Gargo: In order to prevent intruders, I have closed all the gates.
Gargo: Please talk to the "Dimensional Gatekeeper" if you'd like to leave
       the castle.
Laharl: Yeah, whatever... You probably just didn't want to watch the gate.

Ghoss: Good morning, Prince. How are you feeling?
Laharl: Couldn't be worse.
Laharl: My body feels really stiff from sleeping too much.
Etna: Why don't you warm up on the "Tutorial" map?
Etna: Go see the Dimensional Gatekeeper and she'll send you there.

Longinus: Is there a problem, Prince?
Longinus: I, Longinus, am at your service, Prince. Would you like to know about
          a weapon?
Longinus: <Tutorial: Weapons - Fists>
          Brawlers rely primarily on their fists as weapons. Normal attacks 
          have a high hit percentage and a slightly higher Chance of Team 
          Attack than other weapons. The Special Techniques learned with fists
          are short-ranged and have a small area of effect. But, many will 
          allow you to knock enemies into different positions.
Longinus: <Tutorial: Weapon - Sword>
          A sword is a typical weapon for battle. Normal attacks with a sword
          do not have any distinctive characteristics. However, the Special 
          Attacks learned with a sword vary greatly, so they will be useful in
          many situations. In general, they are easy to use, but not very 
          powerful and require a lot of SP.
Longinus: <Tutorial: Weapon - Spear>
          The spear is another popular weapon. While normal attacks with a 
          spear are a bit weak, you have the advantage of being able to attack
          from two panels away. The Special Techniques learned with a spear
          generally have a short range, but the area of effect varies. 
          Furthermore, some techniques allow you to change your position.
Longinus: <Tutorial: Weapon - Axe>
          The axe is a difficult weapon to use. Normal attacks have a low hit
          percentage, but deal major damage when they do hit. The Special
          Techniques learned with an axe have short range and can only be used
          against a single enemy. It may seem a bit restrictive, but since its
          limitations are clear, you could say that an axe is easy to use. 
          Also, when stronger Special Techniques are available, the chances of
          lowering an opponent's DEF are high.
Longinus: <Tutorial: Weapon - Bow>
          Bows are long-range weapons that Archers specialize in. Normal 
          attacks deal damage according to the following formula:
          (ATK/2) + (HIT/2) = Total Damage.
          The Special Techniques learned with a bow have long range and can
          effect single or multiple targets. However, their restrictions on the
          area of effect and required action space will take some time to get
          used to. Damage due to Special Techniques is calculated just as for
          normal attacks:
          (ATK/2) + (HIT/2) = Total Damage.
Longinus: <Tutorial: Weapon - Gun>
          Guns have the longest range of all the weapons. Normal attack damage
          is based on a character's Hit stat. The Special Techniques learned 
          with a gun have a very long range. Special Technique damage is also
          dependent on a character's Hit stat. 
Longinus: <Tutorial: Weapon - Staff)
          Staffs are weapons that can boost the power of your magic. There is
          nothing special about doing normal attacks with a staff, and there 
          are no Special Techniques to learn, either. But, you can increase the
          range and area of effect of your magic by improving your Weapon 
          Mastery of staffs. The experience you have earned casting spells will
          also effect the range and area of effect of your magic. Staffs are
          most effective when used by characters specializing in magic.

[Laharl enters the main hall for the first time]

<Tutorial>
Items can be purchased at the "Rosen Queen Co., Netherworld Branch". Each
character can equip up to 4 items. A character can equip 1 weapon and 3 other
items, such as armor. Monsters can only equip weapons from the "Monster Only
Weapons" category. It is best to equip a weapon that suits a character's 
inherent strengths. 

[Laharl speaks to everyone in the main hall]

<Battle Depot>
Welcome to the Rosen Queen Company, Netherworld Branch. We here at Rosen Queen
work hard day and night to offer a selection of merchandise that customers want.
Our selection is constantly changing. If you don't find something you want, try
coming back at a later time. Please take your time.

<Weapon Shop>
Welcome to the Rosen Queen Company, Netherworld Branch. I suggest that you 
equip weapons that are well-suited for each character. If you equip a Warrior
with a sword, his level of Weapon Mastery will quickly rise. You CAN have 
characters use weapons that are not best for them, but their Weapon Mastery 
will rise at a slower rate. Regardless of a character's ability with a sword,
sword Special Techniques cannot be used unless a sword is equipped. It's best 
to focus on each character's specialty to start with. 

<Tutorial: Shopping>
The selection of items at the shop will be different every time you visit.
Keep trying until you find what you're looking for. You can carry 16 items
into battle in your Item Bag, and store up to 256 items in the warehouse.
If you get certain proposals passed at the Assembly, you can influence the
shop's selection. If you pass a proposal for "More Expensive Stuff", the
"Product Rank" of the items available will go up. "Product Rank" refers
to the quality of selection. The higher the level, the better quality
items you can buy. As you buy items, your "Customer Rank" bar will build
up. This affects how much you can raise the Product Rank. For example, if
your Customer Rank is 8, you can request that the Product Rank be 
increased to 8 by the Assembly. The Product Rank cannot exceed your 
Customer Rank. Buy lots of items to raise your Customer Rank! Note that
the maximum Customer/Product Rank is 12.

<Tutorial for Beginners>
There are many features in this game, like the Dark Assembly and the Item 
World. Ask the appropriate people for more info. Don't worry, you can still
beat the game with minimal knowledge.

<Tutorial>
Welcome to the Netherworld hospital. Here, we'll treat your wounds and heal 
any and all damage you may have taken. We will, of course, charge you
accordingly. You can earn prizes based on the total HP and SP that have been
recovered, so please go get thrashed in battle<3

Item World Keeper: This is the Item World Gateway Center. We are not open yet.

Pleinair: The Assembly is currently not in session.

Zommie: Eat, sleep, and do anything you want all day... 
Zommie: It's sooooo good to be a demon!
Laharl: Have you ever thought of working for me?
Zommie: Hahahaha. Of course not.

[Laharl walks toward the Dimensional Gatekeeper]

<Tutorial>
Have you saved yet? When you want to save, press Triangle to open the menu,
and select "Save". You can only save in the Overlord's Castle. Once you have
entered an area map, there's no turning back, so be careful.

Dimensional Gatekeeper: I am the Dimensional Gatekeeper. I will input the 
                        coordinates for your desired destination, Prince, and
                        you will instantly be transported there. Please select
                        where you would like to go.

=== i. Tutorial ===

   --- a. Battle Basics 1 ---

[Camera shows a battlefield over an open field]

Laharl: Now, then... Time for a little warm-up. I feel a little rusty.
Etna: Ah, Prince. We've got company... how convenient.

[View changes to the battle screen]

Laharl: Stray demons, huh...
Etna: Allow me, Prince.
Etna: You may be a little out of practice after your long slumber.
Etna: Don't worry, I came prepared!
Etna: Come on, Prinny Squad!!
  
[Leaves blow past the screen]

Etna: Get your butts out here, NOW!!

[3 Prinnies come out of the base panel]

Etna: So Prince, whaddya think of this Prinny Squad I hired?
Etna: They're my loyal servants: they'll do anything I say.

[Prinnies begin dancing around]

Laharl: Are you sure about that?

[Etna pops out of the base panel and attacks the three Prinnies]

Etna: See, they're loyal.
Laharl: ...Does it make sense to beat up your allies before a battle?
Laharl: Anyways, I think we've made those demons wait long enough already.
Etna: Hey, you're right. How nice of them to be so patient.
Laharl: Yeah, that's considerate of them.
Laharl: To show my appreciation, I'll only beat them half to death.
Etna: Oh, you're so kind<3 If I were you, I'd beat them all the way to 
      death.
Laharl: K, Kind!?
Laharl: Stop that! That word gives me goose bumps!
Laharl: Dammit! I take it back! I'm gonna beat them all the way to death!
Etna: (He's still a kid, so quick-tempered.)
Etna: (It looks like carrying out my plan will be a lot easier than I thought
      <3)
Laharl: Hm? You say something?
Etna: Oh, nothing. Nothing at all. So, what are your orders, Prince? ...You
      do remember how to fight, right?

[Scene shifts to the actual battle]

<Tutorial: Basics of Battle>
  
Etna: Just in case you forget, let me explain the basics of battle.
Etna: Move the cursor over the "Base Panel" and press X to select the 
      characters you wish to dispatch. 

[Game proceeds to demonstrate the action, and summons a Prinny from within the
Base Panel]

Etna: If you want to cancel an order to dispatch a character, move the cursor
      over the character and press Circle.

[Game move Prinny by itself]

Etna: For example, if you press Circle here...

[Prinny goes back into the Base Panel]

Etna: ...you can cancel the action. 
Etna: Now, let's issue a command to a dispatched character. First, move 
      him/her next to an enemy...

[Game demonstrates by moving Laharl in the middle of two demons]

Etna: ...and select "Attack".

[Game assigns Laharl to attack one of the demons]

Etna: You have now assigned an action. However, the character won't attack
      immediately.
Etna: If you want to execute the actions which you've assigned, open the menu
      and select either "Execute" or "End Turn".
Etna: In this case, let's pick "Execute".

[Game demonstrates by having Laharl attack the demon]

Etna: See? The character attacked.
Etna: Assign actions -> Triangle -> Execute. Remember this. You'll be using 
      it a lot.
Etna: If you assign actions to multiple characters, they will be executed in
      the order that you assign them.
Etna: Be careful: you can't cancel actions once you've chosen to execute 
      them.
Etna: After you're done issuing commands, open the menu and end your turn. It
      will then be the enemy's turn. 

[Game demonstrates by having Laharl end his turn]

[Enemies use their turn to kill Laharl]

Laharl: Owww... Why do I have to be the one to do this...? I'm the next 
        Overlord, for crying out loud!
Etna: ......
Etna: That was an example of something NOT to do.
Etna: Only an idiot would rush straight into the enemy alone.
Laharl: You made me do it!!
Etna: Characters killed in battle, like our Prince here, can be revived by
      paying Hell (HL) to the castle's hospital. 
Etna: If all of your dispatched characters are defeated, the game will be
      over.
Laharl: So, the basic idea is to gang up on character and beat the living 
        daylights out of him, huh?
Etna: Exactly, Prince. Remember to use your head next time.
Laharl: You're the one who told me to do it!!
Etna: "Team Attacks" sometimes occur when allies are positioned next to
      attacking characters. 
Etna: If several characters attack the same enemy in a row, a "Combo" will
      result, and greater damage will be dealt.
Etna: If you want to know more, select Triangle and select "Help" from the
      menu.

   --- b. Battle Basics 2 ---

[Camera shows a battlefield over an open field]

Laharl: More stray demons...
Laharl: How annoying. I wish I could just toss 'em.
Etna: Well, why don't you?
Laharl: You can!?

<Tutorial: Lifting & Throwing>

Etna: For our ignorant Prince, let me explain the commands "Lift" and 
      "Throw".

[Game sends Laharl out onto the map]

Etna: In situations like this where you're too far for your attacks to 
      reach...

[Game sends Etna to stand next to Laharl]

Etna: Pick up a character by selecting "Lift"...

[Game demonstrates by having Etna Lift Laharl]

Laharl: H, Hey! Stop it, Etna!!
Etna: Then select "Throw". You'll have to decide on a direction and distance,
      too.
Etna: I'll throw you next to the enemy.

[Game demonstrates by having Etna Throw Laharl next to a demon]

Laharl: Oomph!!
Etna: See? That covered a lot of ground. Now, you're able to attack.
Etna: You can use "Lift" and "Throw" on both allies and enemies.
Etna: Keep in mind that only humanoid characters can use "Lift" and "Throw".
      (Monsters can't do it.)
Etna: By making good use of these commands, you can extend your attack range.
Etna: This is very helpful in moving around on some maps, so don't forget it.
Etna: There are other uses for the commands besides covering ground, like...
Etna: Holding an enemy so he/she can't move, saving injured allies from 
      danger, etc.
Etna: By the way, Prinnies will explode when they're thrown, so handle them
      with care.
Prinny: Dood!? You gotta be kidding!
Etna: And if you throw an enemy at an enemy...
Etna: There may be other fun uses waiting to be discovered. Try 
      experimenting.
Laharl: That's it...! I'm gonna throw you next time...!
Etna: Oh, and one more thing. A character will take damage if the turn ends
      and he/she is still holding someone.

[Battle starts over from the beginning, and is fought]

   --- c. Geo Effect ---

[Camera shows a battlefield over an open field]

Laharl: "Geo Panels"... Interesting. These are geographical features that are
        attuned to the elements of the universe.

[Game moves battle icon over a Geo Symbol]

Laharl: Crystallization of those elements results in "Geo Symbols", like the 
        one right there.
Etna: ...Well, that doesn't explain anything, so let me clarify a few things.

<Tutorial: Geo Effects>

Etna: Let me explain "Geo Effects", a system that will heavily influence 
      battle. 
Etna: Take a good look at the colored panels on the area map.

[Game moves battle icon over a Geo Panel]

Etna: Notice that "Enemy Boosy + 50%" is displayed at the top of the screen.
Etna: That means that when an enemy is on a blue panel, his/her ATK and DEF
      will be powered up by 50%.
Etna: This is not good for you, so it's wise to get rid of this effect.
Etna: You might be wondering, "Where does it come from in the first place?"

[Game scans the map before moving the battle icon over a Geo Panel]

Etna: Why lookie here! I just found an object labeled "Enemy Boost" on this
      blue panel!
Etna: This guy's the culprit!
Laharl: How obvious was that?
Etna: This object is called a "Geo Symbol", and as long as it's on a colored
      panel, all panels of the same color will be effected.
Etna: Let's toss it somewhere.

[Game demonstrates by moving Laharl next to the Geo Panel, then throwing it on
a red panel on the map]

Etna: The effect "Enemy Boost" is no longer on any of the blue panels.
      But...

[Game moves the battle icon onto a red panel]

Etna: Huh?
Etna: The Geo Symbol is now affecting the red panels. That doesn't change 
      much.
Etna: Hmmmmm. Let's just destroy it, then.

[Game moves Laharl next to the Geo Symbol]

Etna: ...Oh, before we do that. Do you see "To Blue" displayed in the Geo
      Symbol's status window? Remember that.
Etna: Now, it's time to attack. Go ahead, Prince.

[Game has Laharl attack and kill the Geo Symbol]

Etna: ...Huh? The red panels are now blue.
Etna: Remember the "To Blue" in the status window? This is what it was
      referring to.
Etna: Destroying a blue Geo Symbol will turn all panels, which was the same
      color as the one it was on, blue.
Etna: Damage will be dealt to anyone standing on of those panels at the time,
      so be sure to take that into consideration.
Etna: No damage will be dealt if you destroy a blue Geo Symbol on a blue
      panel. (No panels will change color, either.)
Etna: You can build up your Bonus Gauge by changing the color of Geo Panels.
Etna: If you are able to use what you've learned to destroy all the Geo 
      Panels, then you will receive a Panel Termination Bonus.
Etna: All of this related to a term I used before, "Geo Effects".
Laharl: That's pretty complicated.
Etna: You're right, it is. It might be a good idea to start off by destroying
      only the harmful Geo Symbols.
Etna: Nullifying all the panels is for experts who understand the concept of
      Geo Effects completely, and you're not one of them.
Laharl: What'd you say!?
Etna: Not all Geo Symbols have negative effects. When you get the chance, you
      should try and take advantage of the useful ones.
Etna: Lastly, press the SELECT button to turn the Geo Panel Display ON/OFF.

[Battle starts over from the beginning, and is fought]

Laharl: ...Hm. I'm starting to get the hang of things again.
Etna: Okay then, are you ready to request some allies at the Dark Assembly?
Etna: There you get to create characters who become your loyal pupils.
Laharl: Loyal pupils...
Laharl: That doesn't sound like a bad idea. Alright, let's go!

[Fade to black]

[Laharl returns to his castle, and is standing in front of Pleinair]

<Tutorial: The Dark Assembly>
Welcome to the Dark Assembly. Here you can create characters as well as submit
proposals. In order to submit proposals, you have to have energy known as 
"Mana". You can gain Mana by defeating enemies. If you want, you can use the
mana you have right now to make a new character. A "Cleric" might be useful for
healing, while a "Warrior" or "Brawler" might come in handy when attacking. If
Prince Laharl makes the characters, they will become his loyal pupils. Manage
their growth carefully.

Pleinair: What would you like to learn about?

<Tutorial: The Dark Assembly>
At the Assembly, you can create pupils and submit proposals. For simple 
requests, the Assembly won't need to debate. For important ones, however, you
will need their approval. Don't forget to visit the Dark Assembly, or life in
the Netherworld will be hell.

<Tutorial: Mana>
"Mana" is the energy needed for a character to summon the Assembly. You gain
mana by defeating enemies. The stronger the enemy defeated, the more mana
your character will gain. Only the character who deals the final blow to an
enemy will receive mana. Keep that in mind when deciding who will finish off
the enemy. Remember: No Mana, no Assembly.

<Tutorial: Creating Pupils>
By creating characters at the Assembly, you can add allies to your party. The
character that addresses the Assembly will become a mentor, and the new 
character will become his/her pupil. At first, you will only be able to 
create characters with low capabilities because of your limited Mana. There
are a number of ways to increase the variety of characters you can create. 
For example, if you level up a warrior, at some point a stronger warrior
class will become available. Another case is where a new class appears when
you've leveled up pupils from several different classes. There are many 
hidden classes to discover. Think creatively, Prince! You can even create
monster pupils once you've defeated that monster in battle. But, the amount
of Mana required depends on how many of that monster type you've killed. At
first it will require a lot of mana, but as you kill more monsters from that
class, it will become less expensive.

<Tutorial: Promotion Exam>
If you select "Promotion Exam" at the Assembly, you'll be thrown into battle.
Only the character taking the exam may participate in this battle. Your rank
will go up if you pass the exam. Your HP/SP will be restored as well. As your
Rank goes up, you can submit new proposals, and more influential Senators
will begin to attend sessions. It's to your advantage to get Senators with
high influence on your side, but be careful not to upset them! For your 
information, the game will end if you fail the exam. Don't push your luck
too much!

<Tutorial: Transmigration>
At Rank 3, you will be able to select "Transmigrate" when visiting the
Assembly. By Transmigrating, you can restart a character from Level 1 in a
new class. A Transmigrated character will start out stronger than a new
character, and his/her stats will go up faster. Your character's "Inheritance
Rate" will depend upon the capability level that you choose for him/her. The
Inheritance Rate is the percentage of magic and Special Techniques that a 
transmigrated character will retain. The higher the capability you select,
the higher the Inheritance Rate will be, but not even "Genius" is at 100%.
Furthermore, character-specific Techniques cannot be carried over. With all
this in mind, if you repeat this process in a well-planned manner, you can
build powerful characters. If you are really ambitious, you can try to 
build a character with all possible magic and Special Techniques.

<Tutorial: Proposals>
More proposals become available to you as your Rank increases. For proposals
that require the approval of the Assembly, the Senators will hold a vote. When
you visit the Assembly, the current total Senatorial vote points will be 
listed beside "Influence". The outcome is not determined by a simple majority
rule; the weight of a Senator's vote is based on his/her personal influence. 
When you are ready for the Senate to vote, open the menu by pressing Triangle.
If the difference between the Yeas and Nays is equal to or more than the Mana
cost of the proposal, then it will pass. Simply put, for the proposal to pass,
the following must hold true: Yeas - Nays [greater than or equal to] Mana
required for proposal. 

<Tutorial: How to Win Votes>
If you are a true demon, you will get your way by any means. First, find out
each Senator's opinion. (Highlight the Senator with the cursor when the
Assembly is in session.) If Senators with high influence are leaning against
you, try giving them gifts. They may start to like you. Press X when the 
cursor is pointed at a Senator, and you'll be able to select a gift for
him/her from your Item Bag. An influential Senator's vote can be very 
valuable to you. Giving them something they don't want will only make them
angry. Give them what they want. The impression you make with a Senator
will carry over into future sessions, so don't be stingy with your bribes. 
Once you have finished campaigning, press Triangle and select "Begin the
Vote" or "Return to the Castle". You can choose to leave if you aren't 
confident of a victory, but the Mana you've spent will not be reimbursed.
Now, let's say that you picked "Begin the Vote". Even if they like you,
they're still demons: unreliable. Don't expect them to agree with you all
the time. But, it's unforgivable to disagree even after you bribed them,
isn't it? Isn't it!? In cases like this, select "Persuade by force". Once
you've made this selection, you'll have to forcefully persuade all
dissenting Senators to change their minds. Any supporters that you 
accidentally hit will reverse their votes, so please be careful. Of
course, if all dispatched (max 10) characters are defeated, the game will
be over. If you kill all the opposing Senators, your proposal will be passed.
But, the Senators killed will return in future sessions only to loathe you
more, so prepare yourself...

[Laharl walks toward the Dimensional Gate]

Zommie: Hey Prince, have you gone to the hospital?
Zommie: You should make sure you heal everybody after a battle.
Prinny Squad: Treatment may not be free (it costs HL), but please heal us, 
              too, dood.

[Zommie gives Laharl 300 HL]

[Laharl speaks to everyone in the castle]

Zommie: There is a new demon named Vyers who has been gaining strength.
Laharl: Never heard of him.
Laharl: Probably no one important. 

Item World Gatekeeper: Welcome. This is the gateway to the Item World. The Item
                       World is one of the most dangerous places in the 
                       Netherworld. Walk in unprepared, and you may die. The
                       topography, Geo Panels, and Geo Symbols change every 
                       time, so you might run into gaps in your path. I'm not
                       to blame if you enter without an item to escape...
                       *giggle*

<Tutorial: The Item World>
The Item World is the world inside all items. There are so many troublesome
"residents" dwelling inside the Item World that it might be best to just subdue
them. Be careful, though! Some are quite strong. If you don't level up before
facing them, you may suffer a humiliating defeat. To enter the Item World of an
item you have equipped, you must first unequip that item. Note that you cannot
take that item with you because you are going inside it. Remember to equip
something in its place.

<Tutorial: Item Status>
The characteristics of an item can be viewed in the Item Status Screen. Let me
explain the info you'll see. When you select an item, you will see its status.
We'll start from the top. "Rarity" is just that, its rarity. The lower the 
number, the rarer it is. "Lv" indicates the level of the item. For each floor
you travel down in the Item World, the item's level goes up by 1. "Pop" 
indicates the population limit for the "Specialists" that live in the item. 
* See "Specialists" for more info. "HP", "SP", "ATK", and so on indicate how
much a character's stats will be raised when the item is equipped. Each circle
next to a stat represents a Specialist that boosts that stat. Two circles means
2 Specialists, etc. -ADD- and -BONUS- indicate the existence and number of
Specialists that raise stats other than HP-RES. If you change the page by 
pressing Square, you can check out all the Specialists dwelling in that item.
For example, "Coach 7" would mean that there is a Specialist that can add 7
extra points to a character's SP. An "Alchemist" can add the Poison effect to
your attacks, while a "Pharmacist" can help protect you from Poison. The stats
on the first page of information already reflect the Specialists present. While
some items may look similar, they are often very different due to their Rarity
and Specialists. Keep a close eye out while shopping for the ideal item.

<Tutorial: Leveling Up Items>
For each floor you clear inside an item, that item will go up one level. The
farther down you go, the stronger the enemies will be. You do not have to 
defeat every Resident, so if you feel endangered, head for the Dimensional 
Gate. You can only exit the Item World after clearing every 10th floor, unless
you have an item called "Mr. Gency's Exit" which allows you to escape at any
time. Plan carefully before entering an item. Also, you can start from the same
floor you left off at in an Item World. Try to reach the bottom!

<Tutorial: Specialists>
There are some good Residents in the Item World, too. They are called 
"Specialists". If you press Square at the Item Status Screen, you may see a job
title like "Gladiator" or "Sentry" displayed on the screen. That means that
somewhere in that Item World there are Specialists that can boost the item's
ATK and DEF stats. For example, "Gladiator 4" indicates the existence of a
Specialist that can raise the item's ATK by 4 points. When you encounter
Specialists in the Item World, they are neither friend nor foe. If you are able
to defeat them, Prince, they will submit to you. And once they have submitted,
they will power up the item they inhabit. Also, once they have submitted, you
can move them from one item to another.

<Tutorial: Moving Residents>
Once you defeat Specialists, you can move them from one item to another. The
ability/bonus they provide to an item will also be transferred. There is a 
limit to the population for each item, however. The number of Specialists
cannot exceed this limit. For example, if the screen says "Pop. 5/12", there
are 5 Residents living in the item, and the item can hold a maximum of 12. The
population limit is determined by the item's "Rarity". 

<Tutorial: Combining Residents>
When the population reaches its limit, you can combine Residents to make room.
Select "Combine Residents", and then choose an item. Combining Residents only
works when more than 1 Resident of the same job are inhabiting a particular
Item World. The purpose of combining Residents is reorganizing and powering up.
Combining Residents will allow you to transfer other Specialists and further
power up an item. Note that the Specialist resulting from a combination will
provide the same total bonus as the component Specialists. By repeating this
process, you can make powerful items. 

<Tutorial: Rarity>
"Rarity" is just that: it's how rare an item is (its worth). The rarer an item
(the lower its Rarity), the more valuable it is. The rarest items are called
"Rares" and "Legends". Rares and Legends are powerful items that allow for
large populations. Their Item Worlds also have more floors than normal items, 
which means higher levels can be attained.

Longinus: Ohhhh! Finally, a warrior worthy of being my master! I am Longinus!
          I am the mighty spear that served King Krichevskoy!! With the King no
          longer, I shall serve as your spear! Now, pull me out!

Dimensional Gatekeeper: I have added "Vyers Castle" to the list of available
                        areas. It is fairly new, so I do not know much about 
                        it. However, it is rumored that a very able man lives
                        there.
Etna: Hmmm... Whatcha gonna do, Prince? Should we take a peek?
Laharl: Definitely. I'll slaughter the master of the castle as the 1st step to
        becoming Overlord!

        and...
Etna: Impartial and... what?
Laharl: ...plunder everything!!
Etna: Ohh! That's our Prince! You're so ruthless.
Prinny Squad: Hey there, you atrocious fiend!
Etna: You cold-blooded monster!
Prinny Squad: A demon among demons!
Laharl: Hmph... Quit complimenting me so much... It's embarrassing.

Voice: But, I give you credit for your bravery.
Voice: Haaaaaaahhhh!!
Sassy Demon: Voila!
Sassy Demon: ...Forgive moi, I must leave you in awe.
Sassy Demon: My name is Vyers. I am the lord of this castle. 
Etna: Vyers? Isn't he the demon that's been knocking off competition for the
      throne...?
Vyers: Oui. That is correct, mademoiselle.
Vyers: I am an aristocrat with both strength and beauty... They call moi the
       "Dark Adonis".
Vyers: ...Young man. I assume that you are the son of the late King 
       Krichevskoy, are you not?
Laharl: That's right. I'm Laharl, the heir to the throne.
Vyers: The heir to the throne?
Vyers: Hah! That is history, dear boy. Your existence has long been 
       forgotten...
Vyers: Are you blind to the horde of demons lining up to fight for the throne?
Laharl: So? I'm the heir. That's all that matters.
Laharl: If they've forgotten, then I'll just have to make them remember.
Vyers: I see. So you saw my potential and decided to strike first against 
       moi...
Vyers: Such wonderful intuition... Well played, son of Krichevskoy.
Laharl: I've never even heard of you. It's only a coincidence that we're here.
Laharl: You're just a tiny stepping stone on my path to the throne.
Vyers: *gasp* How dare you! I am the Dark Adonis Vy...
Laharl: Who gives a damn about you? Your new name is "Mid-Boss".
Vyers: Mi, Mi, Mid-Boss!?
Etna: Looks like you hurt his pride, Prince. 
Mid-Boss: Unforgivable...
Mid-Boss: That is unforgivable!!!!

[After the battle, the camera displays the same room seen before the battle

Mid-Boss: Heh... I have underestimated your skill. I took you for but a child.
Mid-Boss: But, that was an error in judgement... I am too kind-hearted.
Laharl: Liar. You were serious just now.
Etna: How pathetic. Nothing's worse than a sore loser.
Mid-Boss: Ugh...! What repulsive little brats you are.
Mid-Boss: I shall come to return the favor, so do not forget moi!!
Laharl: Alright, let's collect the spoils and head home.
Etna: Uh... Prince, I need to use the restroom.
Prinny Squad: Master Etna ran away.
Prinny Squad: ...which means... Dood, we're gonna hafta carry all this?
Prinny Squad: We're Master Etna's vassals, not the Prince's...
Laharl: Etna's vassals are my vassals. And my vassals do what I say.
Laharl: Now, get to work.
Prinny Squad: Doooooood...
Big Sis Prinny: Now, now. It's only until the next red moon, right?

Etna: Don't worry. If you leave it to me, the throne will be yours. 
Voice: Are you sure you can deliver on that promise?
Etna: ...Yes. Remember, in exchange...

Vulcanus: Is it true you sent Flonne to assassinate King Krichevskoy!?
Seraph: Yes, it is true.
Vulcanus: Wha, wha, wha!? What did you do that for!?
Vulcanus: King Krichevskoy is the ruler of that abominable, dirty, rotten 
          Netherworld!!
Seraph: ......
Vulcanus: If you want him assassinated, it would make more sense to send me!
Vulcanus: Instead, you pick that Angel Trainee...
Vulcanus: You think too highly of her!
Vulcanus: I am very aggravated by this!
Seraph: ...That is exactly why you are not fit for this task.

        I always wanted to be one.
Flonne: Maybe I have potential. Nin nin<3
Flonne: ...But still, is it alright for me to be doing this?
Flonne: The angels all say that demons are evil, but are they really?
Flonne: It doesn't seem fair to judge somebody based on rumors alone.
Flonne: Even if it's the Seraph's orders, I don't feel right assassinating 
        somebody I don't know.
Flonne: ...Does that mean it's alright to assassinate somebody I DO know? That
        seems wrong, too.
Flonne: Can't kill strangers... Hmmmm, can't kill acquaintances either...

Laharl: Who are you, and why are you in my room talking to yourself!?

[Flonne turns around]

Flonne: Kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhh!!

[Flonne bops Laharl on the head, and Laharl gets knocked backwards]

Laharl: Owww...! What the heck did you do that for!?
Flonne: Oh, I'm sorry. You scared me, so I accidentally...
Flonne: (...Huh? Is he a demon...?)
Flonne: (There are demons this young...? I didn't know that.)
Laharl: Hmph... So, who are you?
Flonne: Me?

[Flonne takes a few steps toward Laharl]

Flonne: Nice to meet you. I'm an assassin.

[Flonne turns around]

Flonne: Whoops. I wasn't supposed to say that.

[Laharl takes a few steps toward Flonne]

Laharl: ...You're pretty dense, aren't you?

[Flonne turns toward Laharl]

Flonne: My! How rude, calling somebody you just met dense!
Laharl: I think that an assassin who tries to kill someone in his sleep is a 
        lot ruder.
Flonne: ...You're right. I apologize.
Laharl: (...Is she really an assassin?)
Flonne: It looks like I failed this time, so I guess I'll be leaving now.

[Flonne takes a bow]

Flonne: I'll be back again. Please take care.

[Flonne runs out of the room]

Laharl: H, Hey! Wait!
Laharl: Someone! Get in here, now!!

[Etna walks into the room and puts her hand on her hip]

Etna: Why are you yelling at this time of night? Ohhh, did you have a 
      nightmare?

[Laharl crosses his arms, his eyes turn red, and his hair sticks straight up]

Laharl: No, you fool! An assassin has infiltrated the castle!
Etna: Huh?

[Laharl becomes relaxed again]

Laharl: What happened to the Prinnies that were supposed to be on patrol!?
Etna: They've partied themselves to sleep.

[Laharl's hair sticks straight up, and his eyes turn red again]

Laharl: Those idiots...!!
Laharl: I'm gonna smack 'em! Wake them up, now!!
Laharl: We've got an assassin to track down!!

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows Laharl standing in his room]

[Laharl speaks to everyone in the castle]

Goleck: Have you saved yet?
Etna: Huh? Come to think of it...
Etna: Prince, have we saved yet?

Manty: It's a bit noisy. Is there some sort of party? Party hardy!
Laharl: ...Why are all my vassals like this?
Etna: Ever take a look in the mirror?

Dratti: Prince, weren't you assassinated?
Laharl: Stop killing me in your head!

Gargo: I heard about the assassin.
Gargo: Congratulations! Assassination attempts mean that you're a 
       full-fledged demon.
Laharl: ...Am I supposed to be happy?

Ghoss: Prince, have you visited the Dark Assembly?
Ghoss: You need to milk the system for all it's worth to have an edge in 
       battle.
Laharl: Now is not the time...

Zommie: If you're looking for the assassin, I saw her walk by here. 
Zommie: I think she used the Dimensional Gate to escape.
Laharl: ...If you saw all this, why didn't you chase after her?
Zommie: That would require effort on my part.

Dimensional Gatekeeper: Ah, Prince. An unfamiliar girl was just here to use the
                        Dimensional Gate. 
Laharl: Where'd she go!?
Dimensional Gatekeeper: She wanted to go someplace where nobody could find her,
                        so I sent her to the "Frozen River".
Etna: Um, doesn't revealing that information defeat the entire purpose of her
      escaping?

Flonne: ......
Laharl: There she is!
Etna: What? She's the assassin?
Etna: I was expecting somebody a little more... menacing. Oh, well.
Laharl: Just shut up and capture her.
Prinny Squad: Aye aye, dood.
Flonne: Prima Pretty Prippanica!
Flonne: Mighty warriors, protect me!
Zombie: Oooooooooooooohhhhh!!
Etna: Angelic language...!?
Etna: Prince, she must be from Celestia.
Laharl: Makes no difference to me.
Laharl: Angel or god, anyone who opposes me will suffer a terrifying death.
Laharl: Hmhmhm...! Say your prayers!
Flonne: Please don't push yourselves too hard. You guys can run if it gets
        dangerous.
Laharl: Don't let her escape!
Laharl: We'll teach her a lesson!

[Camera shows an area in Celestia with clouds and floating plateaus]

Seraph: ......
Voice: Hmhmhm...
Seraph: Reveal yourself!
Seraph: Oh, it is you. Please do not startle me like that.
Seraph: So... How are things progressing?
Voice: Well, I cannot say that they have gone perfectly, but there is nothing
       to be concerned about.
Seraph: I see... Forgive me for putting such a heavy burden on you.
Voice: Please... It was my idea to begin with.
Voice: By the way, how is the girl doing? Has she managed to meet Laharl 
       safely?
Seraph: I would not use the word "safely", but she is managing in her own way.
Voice: You have a lot of faith in her.
Seraph: Yes... Just as you have faith in him.

   --- c. Eternal Winter ---

[Camera shows an icy field where Laharl and Etna have caught up to Flonne]

Flonne: How persistent... Are all demons like this?
Flonne: I have no other choice. I'll have to use a sleep spell. Nighty-night!
Etna: Oh no, you don't!

[A red glow begins emitting from Etna]

Etna: Fryer Fire Frapparisque!
Etna: Flames, burn that girl to the ground!

[A white glow begins emitting from Flonne]

Flonne: Berry Barrier Balidaire!
Flonne: Mirror, reflect the flames!

[Etna fires a Fire spell, which bounces off of Flonne's Reflect spell, just
misses a dodging Etna, and burns Laharl]

Etna: Whoa!
Laharl: Ow!!
Etna: Uh... Sorry, Prince.
Laharl: Ugh...! My hair...!

[Laharl takes a few steps toward Flonne]

Laharl: Now you've done it! I had my hair just how I wanted it! This is
        unforgivable!

[Laharl's eyes turn red, and his hair sticks straight up in the air]

Laharl: Feel the wrath of Laharl!!

[Flonne runs away]

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows Laharl and Etna cornering Flonne against an icy wall]

Laharl: You can't escape!
Laharl: I'm proud to say that I'm the most persistent demon in all the
        Netherworld!
Flonne: Is that so? Wow... That's really something.

[Laharl takes a few steps toward Flonne]

Laharl: ...Are you trying to make a fool of me?

[Etna steps forward and faces Laharl from Laharl's left]

Etna: No, I think that's the way she is.
Flonne: *giggle* Now it's my turn to show off a little.
Flonne: But, I'll have to use the item the Seraph gave me, so I can only do it
        once.

[Flonne takes a step forward]

Flonne: Are you ready? Here I go!

[Laharl and Etna face each other]

Etna: Prince... I think we're playing by her rules...

[A white glow begins emitting from Flonne]

Flonne: Durian Dragon Dranyago!
Flonne: Dragon, come forth!!

[A Green Dragon appears in between Flonne, Laharl, and Etna]

Dragon: Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!

[Etna turns toward Laharl]

Etna: ...Prince, we have to fight THIS?

[Laharl faces Etna]

Laharl: We don't have much choice, do we?

[Fade to black]

[After the battle, the camera shows the same map where the battle took place]

Flonne: Wow... You defeated my dragon.
Laharl: Hmhmhm... You've caused a lot of trouble for me.
Laharl: I don't know who hired you, but I'll make you regret the day you tried
        to assassinate the great Laharl!
Flonne: Uh... Excuse me, but...
Flonne: Why would I want to assassinate you?
Laharl: Huh?
Flonne: I am Angel Trainee Flonne.
Flonne: I am here by order of the Seraph to assassinate the Overlord, King
        Krichevskoy.
Laharl: ...You're here to kill my old man?
Flonne: Your old man...?
Flonne: That means... you're the King's son?
Etna: Doesn't anyone in Celestia read the newspaper?
Flonne: ...?
Laharl: ...You came all the way from Celestia for nothing.
Laharl: My old man died 2 years ago.
Flonne: *sniff*
Flonne: *sniff* ...I'm sorry...
Laharl: H, Hey! Why are you crying?
Flonne: Your father passed away, right...?
Flonne: You'll never see him again...
Flonne: When I think about that, it makes me sad...
Laharl: Huh?
Laharl: Are you crazy!?
Laharl: You came here to assassinate him, right? Why should you be sad?
Flonne: Are you not sad?
Laharl: Me? I don't have that emotion.
Flonne: That's not true.
Flonne: When you lose someone or something important to you, you cry, don't
        you? Your heart aches, doesn't it?
Laharl: Hmph... I don't understand a word you're saying.
Flonne: How come?
Laharl: "How come?"
        Because I'm a demon, of course!
Flonne: Demons don't know sadness?
Laharl: E, Exactly! I've never experienced such an emotion in my entire life!
Flonne: If that's true, then does that mean demons don't know love, either?
Flonne: Sadness is only possible because of love.
Laharl: You're right. Demons have no love, either!
Flonne: That's...
Flonne: That's just... too sad...
Laharl: (She sounds just like my mother.)
Laharl: (How stupid! Love...?)
Laharl: (What good is it? What's the point in having it?)
Laharl: (Love is the reason Mother is dead!)
Laharl: (I don't believe... I'll never believe in love!!)
Flonne: (If demons really don't know love, then it's my duty as a Celestian to
        to explore the matter.)
Flonne: (I was ordered to assassinate the Overlord, but this must be a sign
        from the heavens.)
Flonne: (It has to be!)
Flonne: (Whether demons are pure evil or not... If they really don't feel 
        love... I will bear witness to the truth!)
Laharl: What's love good for!? I don't need it...
Laharl: Demons like me don't need that kind of crap!
Flonne: If that is true, then demons are a real threat to Celestia.
Flonne: Since I can't complete my mission, I have decided that my new goal is 
        to learn the true nature of demons.
Flonne: I must know for certain whether or not demons are capable of love.
Flonne: And if necessary...
Flonne: I will carry out my original mission with a new target!
Laharl: Hmhmhm...
Laharl: Hmhmhm!!
Laharl: Haaahahahaha!!
Laharl: Alright! Be my guest!
Laharl: I shall burn a true vision of horror into that empty head of yours!

[Flonne joins the party]

Etna: *sigh*
Etna: Prince, what are you doing recruiting an assassin... and an angel at 
      that?
Etna: (...But, this might avert his attention from me.)
Etna: (*giggle* Perfect timing<3)

Etna: At long last, the nefarious angel Flonne seems to have forsaken her evil
      ways.
Flonne: N, Nefarious angel?
Etna: But, can an old dog learn new tricks!?
Etna: Flonne suddenly reverts to a killing machine, slaughtering a crowd of
      innocent demons!
Flonne: K, Killing machine!?
Etna: Finally, she transforms into a space monster! Could this be the end of 
      the Netherworld!?
Flonne: S, Space monster!?
Etna: Alright! It's time for me to transform!!

Laharl: Salary?
Etna: Yep. Today's the Prinny Squad's payday.
Laharl: I get that part. 
Laharl: Now, explain to me why I have to pay YOUR vassals' salary.
Etna: My vassals are your vassals, right?
Etna: Then, it's only natural that you sign their paychecks.
Laharl: Ugh... I can't argue with that...
Laharl: ...Fine. But, it's not comin' outta my pocket. 
Etna: Huh? I thought you had plenty of money. 
Laharl: That's my allowance! No one's touching it!
Etna: Stingy...
Laharl: Shut up! ...So, who's the richest guy around here?
Laharl: We'll just loot his place!!
Flonne: ...Is he always like this?
Etna: Yep, always.
Flonne: I've never met anybody like that in Celestia.
Etna: I'd be amazed if you did.
Etna: But, you won't last long in the Netherworld if something like this 
      surprises you.
Flonne: Oooh... This is such a culture shock to me...

[Camera shows the Episode 3 title screen]

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows Laharl standing in front of his throne]

[Laharl speaks to everyone in the castle]

Goleck: Why are the folks up in Celestia sending an assassin here now?
Goleck: There hasn't been any interaction between us and them for thousands of
        years...
Laharl: Angels hating demons is old news. But, this may be the start of 
        something big.
Laharl: Things could get interesting. Hmhmhm...

Manty: Where is the assassin? I'll take him on.
Flonne: Good day. I am Angel Trainee Flonne, the assassin dispatched from
        Celestia. Pleased to meet you.
Manty: Oh, nice to meet you too...
Manty: Prince, you sure this is the assassin?
Laharl: ...Don't ask.

Dratti: If you don't have money, steal it!
Dratti: It's so cool that "playing dirty" is permitted in the Netherworld.
Flonne: I don't think that anyone gave permission...

Gargo: The assassin was an angel?
Gargo: What is the world coming to?

Ghoss: Prince, have you been to the Item World?
Ghoss: If you want to level up an item, you must travel deeper into the dungeon
       of the Item World.
Ghoss: To power up an item, you must defeat the Residents known as 
       "Specialists" and have them submit to you.
Ghoss: There are other things you should know, so ask the guide to the Item
       World.
Etna: Wow! Such friendly advice coming from a demon!

Zommie: It's not so great to be rich, knowing how the Prince operates.
Flonne: I agree.

Dimensional Gatekeeper: I have located the richest demon in the vicinity. But
                        due to a barrier, I cannot open a gate there.
Laharl: So, what can we do?
Dimensional Gatekeeper: You need a key.
Laharl: A key...?
Dimensional Gatekeeper: Yes. In order to open a closed gate, you must fulfill a
                        specific condition. The condition for this gate is that
                        you must be equipped with an item that is level 10 or
                        higher.
Etna: The Prince has to equip it?
Flonne: This gate key stuff is pretty picky.
Dimensional Gatekeeper: You must enter the Item World in order to level up an
                        item. Let me warn you that the Item World for a highly
                        ranked item has many strong enemies. My advice is to
                        start with a common sword to avoid getting in over your
                        head. Please be careful, Prince.

[Dimensional Gatekeeper gives Laharl a Mr. Gency's Exit]

<Tutorial: Mr Gency's Exit>
By using this item, you can return to the Overlord's Castle from the Item 
World. In addition, you can return to where you left off at a later date.

[Laharl goes to the Item World and powers up an item to level 10]

Dimensional Gatekeeper: Prince! I see that you have a level 10+ item equipped.
                        I will now add "Dinero Palace" to the list of available
                        areas. Once a gate is open, it will remain open. You no
                        longer need to equip an item of level 10 or higher.
Laharl: Dinero Palace... Sounds rich to me.
Etna: *giggle* I can't wait to see what's there<3

Laharl: What the...!? These are all from the castle. 
Etna: It was probably taken when the King died.
Laharl: ...So, this place belongs to an ex-vassal.
Laharl: Hmhmhm...This'll be fun!!
Laharl: Hey, Prinnies! This is for your paychecks! You better work hard!!
Prinny Squad: Aye aye, dood!
Flonne: Hmmmmmm.
Flonne: Netherworld Prinnies are a lot different than Celestial Prinnies...
Flonne: In Celestia, Prinnies, cook, clean, and do the laundry.
Etna: But they're all the same on the inside.
Flonne: On the inside? What do you mean?
Etna: You're an angel, and you don't know these things?
Etna: Prinnies have human soul inside them.
Etna: Most of 'em were pretty worthless in their past lives, like murderers or
      thieves.
Etna: They work as Prinnies in the Netherworld and Celestia to atone for their
      sins.
Etna: In Celestia, they do good deeds for free.
Etna: In the Netherworld, they do ultra-hard labor for less than minimum wage.
Etna: Once they've redeemed themselves or saved enough money, they can be
      reincarnated.
Etna: I don't know all the details, but that's the basic idea.
Flonne: I see.
Flonne: But, why do they work for money in the Netherworld?
Etna: You've never heard of the saying, "money makes the Netherworld go round"?
Flonne: ...? I don't get it. Is money that important?
Etna: Of course it is! Geez, you Celestians...
Etna: Look, there's nothin' more important than money, in this world or any
      other!
Flonne: Of course there is! Love and friendship and...
Etna: Huh?
Etna: What good is that stuff?
Etna: Is your head full of flowers or something?
Flonne: Yes, I love flowers.
Etna: Oh, geez... Your head IS full of flowers.

Etna: That's right. He was a magnificent Overlord.
Laharl: Hmph. Not even.
Laharl: I was ready to dethrone him myself, but he went and croaked on his own.
Etna: Hey Prince, can I have it?
Laharl: Sure, go ahead.

Flonne: ...Come to think of it, how did he pass away?
Etna: Choked on a black pretzel.
Flonne: ...Huh?

Hoggmeiser: ...Oh yeah$ *snort*
Hoggmeiser: Ever since the King died, I knew I was forgetting something... 
            Ahhhh, so it was you, Prince$
Laharl: You call yourself a vassal!?
Etna: You know how demons are. You always say not to be so picky about the
      details.
Laharl: I'm not a detail!
Etna: Oh, don't be so self-centered.
Hoggmeiser: I'm glad you helped refresh my memory$ It was nagging me like a 
            fish bone stuck in my throat$ *snort*
Laharl: F, Fish bone!? You...!
Hoggmeiser: ...Well, what do you want?$
Laharl: Whaddya mean, what do I want? Now that my old man's dead, I'm the
        Netherworld's next Overlord! 
Laharl: I'm taking back everything that's mine... And the rest of your fortune,
        too!
Hoggmeiser: *snicker*
Hoggmeiser: Don't push your luck$ *snort* Just because you're the King's son, 
            it doesn't mean you can do whatever you want$
Hoggmeiser: It's strength that counts in the Netherworld$ If you want what is
            now mine, you'll have to take it by force$
Laharl: That's exactly what I had in mind!
Laharl: Enough talk; let's go!!
Flonne: (Fighting over money and power...)
Flonne: (Were the angels right about demons...?)
Flonne: (If they really are evil, then...)

Laharl: Hmhmhm... you lose. I'm taking everything, as promised.
Hoggmeiser: Y, You can't!$ I won't be able to survive without my money!$
Laharl: Well then, I'll just finish you off now.
Hoggmeiser: *squeal*
Flonne: (How cruel... Not only is he taking his money, but his life, too...)
Flonne: (I can't let this happen!)
Flonne: (If worse comes to worse, I'll stop him with my own two hands.)

[Flash of white comes across the screen]

Kid Demon: Wait, you bully!!
Laharl: Who are you? Hoggmeiser's son?
Hoggmeiser's Son: ......
Laharl: Let go. I won't go easy on you just because you're a kid.
Hoggmeiser's Son: ......
Laharl: ...Hey, kid. Why are you risking your life for this greedy pig?
Laharl: You wanna die?
Hoggmeiser's Son: ......
Flonne: Don't you understand, Laharl?
Flonne: This is love.
Laharl: Here we go again...
Laharl: Love, love, love. Is that all you've got in your puny little head!? You
        damn Love Freak!
Flonne: You can call me whatever you want. But, why is it that you refuse to
        believe in love?
Flonne: You reject it because you're afraid of it! Isn't that right?

Noble Demon: Laharl, my son.
Laharl: ...Hm?
Noble Demon: What do you think of me? Do you love me?
Laharl: ...No, I hate you.
Laharl's Father: Hm... A typical answer for a demon.
Laharl's Father: Which is fine, for now. But, one day...

Laharl: (Hmph... Now she's got me thinking about my old man...)
Laharl: (My old man, huh...)
Laharl: (What was he trying to tell me that time?)
Laharl: (......)
Laharl: (...Hmph, this is stupid. Why am I even thinking about this?)
Laharl: (It's all that Love Freak's fault...!)
Laharl: ...Forget it. I've wasted enough of my time.
Etna: Huh? You're not going to finish him?
Laharl: It wouldn't make me any richer.
Laharl: Alright, start taking the good stuff!
Laharl: ...But, make sure you leave some behind for them.
Flonne: Laharl...
Laharl: Hmph...

[Hoggmeiser joins the party]

Flonne: Master Lamington, I finally understand.
Flonne: Those words you spoke to me...

[Screen goes white]

[Camera shows an area in Celestia in an apparent flashback]

Flonne: Master Lamington.
Seraph: What is it, Flonne?
Flonne: The angels told me that the demons are all evil. Is that true?
Seraph: What do you think?
Flonne: Hmmmm... I've never met one, so I don't know.
Seraph: Haha...
Seraph: Listen carefully, Flonne. There is no such thing as absolute evil or
        absolute good.
Seraph: The angels assume that they are good and the demons are evil. That is
        an unfortunate misconception.
Seraph: Demons do have love. The angels... and in fact, most demons, just do 
        not realize it.
Seraph: If we can guide them... If we can make them see, then one day...

[Screen goes white]

[Camera goes back to the throne room within Dinero Palace]

Flonne: Master Lamington, I will accompany Laharl for a little while longer.
Flonne: He is selfish, self-centered, and stubborn... And those aren't his only
        shortcomings.
Flonne: But I have discovered a hint of kindness in his heart.
Flonne: It may be small right now...
Flonne: ...But I have great hope that he will learn to love.
Flonne: So, Master Lamington... 
        ...please forgive my digression.

(NOTE: This ending is seen by killing 50 allies before the Lavish Hall 
battle, then choosing to kill Hoggmeiser)

[After the battle, the camera shows the throne room again]

Laharl: Hmhmhm... you lose. I'm taking everything, as promised.
Hoggmeiser: Y, You can't!$ I won't be able to survive without my money!$
Laharl: Well then, I'll just finish you off now.
Hoggmeiser: *squeal*
Flonne: (How cruel... Not only is he taking his money, but his life, too...)
Flonne: (I can't let this happen!)
Flonne: (If worse comes to worse, I'll stop him with my own two hands.)
Flonne: Hold it!
Flonne: ...So, demons ARE evil.
Laharl: Fool... Of course they are.
Flonne: Then, you leave me no choice...
Flonne: I shall defeat you!
Laharl: Hmhmhm...!
Laharl: Good! Give it your best shot!

Vulcanus: Our little Flonne... She managed to escape the grasp of the demons...
Vulcanus: Hmph! She probably used her feminine charm.
Vulcanus: ...So, Krichevskoy was already dead.
Vulcanus: What I don't understand is why Flonne hasn't returned to Celestia.
Vulcanus: !!! Is it possible that she's trying to use the demons to gain 
          control of Celestia!?
Vulcanus: That's it! That has to be it! There's no other explanation!!
Vulcanus: *grunt* I won't allow it! My plan shall not be interfered with!
Vulcanus: ...Still, this demon den is so filthy...
Vulcanus: It reeks of evil.
Vulcanus: Hm? What's this book?
Vulcanus: Don't demons know how to put things away when they're done with them?

[Screen glows red]

Vulcanus: ---------------------!!!!
Vulcanus: What kind of book is this!? My god!!
Vulcanus: This page!
Vulcanus: This page!!
Vulcanus: All these pages...!!!
Vulcanus: Hah... hah...
Vulcanus: Hah... hah...!

[Red glow stops]

Vulcanus: ...Huh!?

[Camera shows Laharl's throne room]

Laharl: A pendant?
Flonne: Yes... It was gone when I woke up this morning.
Laharl: ...And what are you trying to say?
Laharl: That one of us stole your pendant?
Flonne: No... If it were you... 
        ...you would steal it impartially, right?
Laharl: Hm... S, So you do get it.
Laharl: Then, what do you want me to do?
Flonne: I want you to...
        ...help me find my pendant...
Laharl: Huh? Do I look like a servant boy to you?
Flonne: No... but...
Etna: What's wrong, Flonne? You look tired.
Flonne: Y, Yes...
Flonne: The Seraph gave that pendant to me before I came to the Netherworld...
Flonne: An Angel Trainee like me cannot stay in the Netherworld very long
        without that pendant...
Flonne: At this rate, I will lose all of my energy, and eventually die...
Etna: Hmmmm, is that so? Well, that sucks.
Etna: Prince, whatcha gonna do?
Laharl: Like I should care.
Laharl: She came to assassinate my old man in the first place.
Etna: That's our Prince. Even capable of turning his back on such a helpless
      little girl.
Laharl: Of, Of course...
Flonne: L, Laharl...
Laharl: W, What? It's the truth, isn't it?
Flonne: Laharl...
Flonne: If you can find my pendant, I will give you something good.
Laharl: "Something good", you say?
Laharl: Hmph. If I wanted it, I'd just steal it from you.
Flonne: You would use violence on weak little me?
Laharl: Give it up, already! I'm a demon!
Laharl: It doesn't matter how you are! Even if you were old, maimed, or 
        diseased!
Flonne: ...Fine.
Flonne: Then, my gift will never be yours...
Laharl: ...What's that supposed to mean?
Flonne: ......
Laharl: Tell me!!
Flonne: ......
Laharl: ...Are you trying to provoke me?
Laharl: ......
Laharl: Hmph... Fine. I've got some time to kill.
Flonne: Laharl...
Laharl: But! Let me make one thing clear. I'm not doing this for your sake!
Laharl: And when I find the pendant, that "something good" is mine!
Flonne: Thank you, Laharl.
Laharl: You're an angel! You shouldn't be thanking demons.
Laharl: I do what I want, when I want!
Laharl: Remember that! Hmph!!

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows Laharl standing in front of his throne]

[Laharl speaks to everyone in the castle]

Goleck: I overheard the Prinnies talking about a "2nd Cycle". What does that
        mean?

Manty: Us monster-type demons can only equip monster-type weapons.
Manty: Isn't that just unfair?

Dratti: Are you utilizing Team Attacks?

Gargo: When bribing Senators, it's best to bribe the highest level Senator
       possible.
Gargo: The higher their level, the more influence they have.
Etna: So basically, money is power, huh?

Ghoss: Now that you mention it, I did see a suspicious man prowling around last
       night.
Laharl: ...And what did you do?
Ghoss: Watched quietly from a distance, of course.

Zommie: Some middle-aged man went to the "Blazing Core" recently. 
Zommie: Is he a tourist?

Dimensional Gatekeeper: Prince, this is a serious matter.
Laharl: What's wrong?
Dimensional Gatekeeper: Someone opened a gate to the "Blazing Core" without me
                        knowing. Who could have done this...?
Laharl: ...Maybe he knows where that pendant is.
Laharl: Alright! I shall find him and make him confess everything!

   --- a. Road of Flames ---

[Camera shows a mountain path highlighted by a lava-filled canyon]

Etna: It's so hot here!! What's with this place!?
Etna: This is too much for me. I'm outta here.
Laharl: Wait. Look at this.
Etna: A feather...?
Flonne: ------!! Let me see!
Etna: What's so special about it?
Flonne: ...This is an angel feather.
Laharl: It's not yours, is it?
Flonne: No... It's size... and the aura it radiates... They are both superior
        to mine.
Flonne: This feather belongs to a high-level angel...
Laharl: Hmph, no wonder this place reeks of goodness.
Flonne: But, I came to the Netherworld under the Seraph's secret orders.
Flonne: Why would another angel be here...?
Etna: Prince, you think that angel stole Flonne's pendant?
Laharl: Hmmm. I'm surprised that a Love Freak like you would have enemies.
Flonne: That is not possible! An angel would never steal my pendant...
Laharl: But, only angels know about the pendant, right?
Flonne: W, Well...
Laharl: Ah... Forget it. We still have to find it, regardless.
Laharl: I don't care what kind of trouble those Celestians stir up for 
        themselves.
Flonne: ......

[Fade to black]

   --- b. Parched Ground ---

[Camera shows Laharl, Etna, Flonne, and the Prinny Squad walking onto the
Parched Ground battle map]

Etna: I wanna go home. Why is it so hot?
Etna: Now, I'm all sweaty.

[Laharl turns toward Etna]

Etna: Prince, in this heat, Flonne's gonna shrivel up before we find the 
      pendant.

[Flonne takes a few steps toward Laharl and Etna]

Flonne: Huh? I'm fine.
Etna: How come?

[Camera angle shifts to Etna's face, while Laharl moves to her right]

[Etna's eyes turn red]

Etna: I'm gonna kill you if you say that angels don't sweat or have to go to
      the bathroom.

[Etna calms down]

[Camera angle shifts back to facing Flonne's face]

Flonne: N, No. The medicine that a Prinny gave me seems to be helping.
Etna: Huh? One of 'em gave you medicine?
Etna: Prinnies aren't that nice. 
      ...You must be hallucinating.

[Laharl turns toward Flonne]

Flonne: No, it's true! I feel much better now.

[Laharl turns toward Etna]

Etna: Okay, which one of 'em was it, then?

[Laharl turns toward Flonne as the Prinny Squad starts panicking silently]

Flonne: Ummmm...

[The party scans all the Prinnies]

Flonne: ...They all look the same.
Etna: ......

[Flonne takes a step toward Etna]

Flonne: B, But it's true!
Etna: Yeah, yeah. The heat must be getting to you, after all.

[Etna turns away from everyone and sulks]

Flonne: I'm telling the truth...

[Fade to black]

   --- c. Blazing Field ---

[Camera shows the Blazing Field battle map]

Laharl: Hey, for future reference, what kind of guy is this Seraph?
Flonne: Future reference?
Laharl: Yeah. I may end up fighting him one day.
Laharl: I'm looking for your pendant. The least you could do is tell me.
Flonne: Well, I guess it's okay.
Etna: No, it's not.
Flonne: Well... Master Lamington, the Seraph, is a very kind person.
Flonne: He loves flowers and poems.
Laharl: Now, wait a second... I only wanna hear about his weak points...
Etna: Hmmmm, so you look up to the Seraph?
Flonne: Yes, of course. Is there someone that you look up to?
Etna: Me? The late King.
Laharl: What!? Then you don't look up to ME?
Etna: Nope.
Laharl: Why you...! You call yourself a vassal!?
Etna: Yeah... Sorta.
Laharl: ...! Someone shoudl teach you some manners...
Laharl: Enough of this! Let's find that pendant!

[Fade to black]

   --- d. Molten Labyrinth ---

[Camera shows Vulcanus appearing into an area within the Blazing Core]

Vulcanus: *grunt*
Vulcanus: Flonne is probably breathing her last breath now...
Vulcanus: She could have lived a long life, had she not been so ambitious.
Vulcanus: *grunt* That fool.
Vulcanus: No one can stop me now...

[Small white glow begins to shine from Vulcanus]

Vulcanus: W, What!? The pendant's shining...!
Vulcanus: Gaaaaaaaaaaaaahhh!!! Hot-hot!! Too hottttttttt!!!

[Screen glows in white]

Vulcanus: I have no use for this anymore!

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows a dark area]

Voice: Ow!!

[Camera shows Mid-Boss standing in an area within the blazing core]

[A small white glow emits from the ground just in front of Mid-Boss]

Mid-Boss: Oooooooohhh, that hurt...
Mid-Boss: Who threw this? That was dangerous.

[Mid-Boss picks the pendant up from the ground]

Mid-Boss: Hmmm? This is a beautiful pendant.
Mid-Boss: It must be a gift from the heavens, a reward for my good behavior.
Mid-Boss: I thank you, o god...
Laharl: Moron. What demon thanks a god?
Mid-Boss: Huh...? Who just called moi a moron!?

[Camera pans out to show Laharl and Flonne standing on a path below Mid-Boss]

Laharl: Me.
Mid-Boss: Oh, what a lucky day, indeed. To be able to confront my rival once
          again!
Laharl: ...Wait a second. Since when did I become your rival?

[Etna walks onto the scene]

Etna: Hey, it's Mid-Boss. Why're you still pestering us? We beat you already,
      remember?
Mid-Boss: You should never assume that I am dead! Besides, my name is the Dark
          Adonis...

[Flonne takes a few steps forward]

Flonne: Ah! My pendant!
Mid-Boss: Hmmm? What a lovely mademoiselle. You recognize this pendant?

[Flonne takes a few more steps toward Mid-Boss]

Flonne: Please, Mr. Mid-Boss! May I have the pendant? It's mine!
Mid-Boss: Ugh! With all due respect, I prefer to be called the "Dark Adonis"...
Flonne: I need it! I beg of you!

[Camera shows a closeup of Mid-Boss]

Mid-Boss: I, I cannot do that, even at the request of someone so lovely.
Mid-Boss: I found this pendant.
Mid-Boss: Therefore... It belongs to moi!

[Etna takes a step forward]

Etna: Man... He's as low as the Prince.

[Laharl and Etna turn toward each other, with Laharl's eyes red and his hair
straight in the air]

Laharl: Shut up! Don't put me on the same level as him!

[Everyone turns toward Mid-Moss]

Flonne: Oh, my! The pendant will punish those with a wicked heart.
Flonne: If you don't let go soon... you'll...!

[Camera focuses on Mid-Boss]

Flonne: ...Huh?
Laharl:What's the deal here? Isn't he supposed to be punished?

[Party turns toward each other]

Flonne: Y, Yes, he should be... That's strange. Is it broken?

[Everyone turns toward Mid-Boss]

Mid-Boss: Haaahahahaha!!
Mid-Boss: Unfortunate, is it not? The heavens would never punish such a pure
          heart as mine!
Mid-Boss: And to match such a beautiful heart, I was graced with the name "Dark
          Adonis"!

[Laharl steps forward]

Laharl: Enough. I told you, you're "Mid-Boss".
Mid-Boss: Haaahahahaha!! Say what you wish!
Mid-Boss: But, do not foolishly think that I am an ordinary mid-boss.
Etna: Hey! You just admitted that you're a mid-boss.
Mid-Boss: Quiet!! I shall crush you so that I never hear the name "Mid-Boss"
          again!!
Mid-Boss: Since last I lost to you, I mastered an incomparable technique. I
          have trained arduously for this moment!!
Mid-Boss: Now, prepare for your inevitable defeat!!

[White flash shoots out from Mid-Boss]

[Fade to black]

[After the battle, the camera shows everyone facing a wounded Mid-Boss]

Mid-Boss: Heh... I shall show mercy on you for the sake of the lovely
          mademoiselle.
Mid-Boss: But, let moi tell you this...
Mid-Boss: My name is the Dark... Adonis...

[Mid-Boss limps away, then trips off of the screen]

[The pendant falls into a pool of lava]

Flonne: Ahh! My pendant!!

[Laharl jumps into the lava]

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows the exact same scene as before, but with Flonne standing at the
edge of the river, Etna relaxing behind her, and the Prinny Squad goofing off
in the background]

Flonne: ......

[Laharl appears near the top of the map with the pendant in hand]

Laharl: Don't make such a pitiful face.
Laharl: Hmph... Isn't this what you're looking for?

[Laharl and Etna walk toward Laharl]

Flonne: Laharl...!
Laharl: Hurry up and take it. My hand is burning.
Flonne: O, Okay!

[Flonne takes the pendant from Laharl, then steps back]

Laharl: ...The pendant is telling me that my heart is wicked.
Laharl: That's good to know.
Flonne: Why...?
Laharl: ...Why what?

[Flonne steps toward Laharl]

Flonne: Why did you do all that for the pendant?
Laharl: There's only one reason.
Flonne: Huh...?
Laharl: To get that reward from you.
Flonne: *giggle*
Laharl: W, What's so funny?
Flonne: Thank you, Laharl.
Laharl: S, Stop it, already! I told you not to talk like that! It's giving me
        the chills!
Laharl: Just give me my reward!
Flonne: ...?

[Laharl walks toward Flonne until they are face to face, and then Laharl's eyes
turn red]

Laharl: Uh, do I have to spell it out?
Laharl: The reward! Give me the "something good" you promised me!
Flonne: Oh, that.
Flonne: I already gave it to you.

[Laharl relaxes]

Laharl: What?

[Camera shifts angles to face Flonne, and Flonne then takes a step back]

Flonne: Put your hand to your heart.
Flonne: Can you feel it? The warmth inside your heart...
Flonne: You faced great danger to find this pendant.
Flonne: You pretend to be only evil, but there is definitely kindness in your
        heart.
Flonne: To give you the opportunity to realize that kindness...
Flonne: That is my reward for you.

[Laharl takes a step back]

Laharl: ---------!!
Laharl: A, A, Are you insane!? How can you say something so crazy!?
Flonne: Kindness is love. The day is near when you will awaken to love<3
        *giggles*
Laharl: Unbelievable! I've been tricked by an angel!!
Laharl: Dammit! I'll remember this!!

[Laharl jumps straight up and off of the screen]

[Etna walks toward Flonne]

Etna: Deceiving the Prince, huh? Not bad at all.

[Flonne turns toward Etna]

Flonne: Really?
Etna: You look happy.
Flonne: Yes, I am. I now know that there is love within Laharl's heart.
Flonne: And if there is love inside him, that means there is love in all
        demons.
Flonne: One day, angels and demons could be friends. I couldn't be happier.
Etna: Boy, that theory is a bit out there. You really are a Love Freak.
Etna: But, you're bound to be disappointed if you keep expecting things to turn
      out so cheery.
Etna: Most demons would choke you from behind without a second thought.
Flonne: Hmmmm. Are you like that, Etna?
Etna: Maybe.
Etna: You'll find out soon enough. *giggle*

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows Vulcanus appearing in a different area within the Blazing Core]

Vulcanus: Damn that Flonne...! She managed to survive!
Vulcanus: She may be a tougher adversary than I first thought.
Vulcanus: It seems that she IS in fact manipulating the demons to do her
          bidding.
Vulcanus: I must return to Celestia and devise a new plan...
Vulcanus: Consider yourself lucky this time...
Vulcanus: But I, Vulcanus, shall emerge victorious in the end!!

[Vulcanus turns to walk away, then stops and turns back around]

Vulcanus: Got that!? Don't forget it, even if I don't make an appearance 
          for awhile!

[Vulcanus turns to walk away, then stops and turns back around]

Vulcanus: Promise me!!

Flonne: Oh, my! ...So, what happened after that?
Etna: Well, of course...
      ...Hm?
Flonne: What is that? ...A photo?
Etna: Someone must've dropped it.
Etna: ---------!!

Etna: Ahahahahaha!!
Flonne: Oh, my...! Is this Laharl...?
Flonne: *giggle* ...Hahahaha!!
Etna: Hmm? There's something written on the back.

Etna: B, B, But Prince... Look at this... Ahahaha, oh my god!!
Laharl: It's just a picture. What's so...
Laharl: --------------!!
Flonne: I didn't know you were into that kind of thing.
Flonne: I'm a bit shocked.
Laharl: W-W-W-W-W-W-W-W-What is this!?
Etna: It's a humiliating photo of you.
Laharl: I can see that!!
Laharl: But, who the hell took it!?
Etna: How should I know? By the way, something's written on the back.
Laharl: ...What?

[Screen gets dark as the words scroll]

Dear Prince Laharl,

An embarrassing photo of you is in my possession: I await your arrival in
Jotunheim. 

If you choose to decline my challenge, copies of the photo will be scattered
throughout the Netherworld.

"It is my wish to contend for overlordship in a fair, agreeable manner."

Laharl: Dammit!! "Fair, agreeable manner"...!? This is playing dirty!
Etna: But, isn't that the demon way?
Laharl: True... But this crosses the line!!
Etna: ...So? Are you going or not? It's definitely a trap.
Laharl: Of course I'm going!
Laharl: If this picture gets spread throughout the Netherworld, I'll be ruined!
Laharl: Whoever you are, you just wait!
Laharl: I'll char you and your paparazzi shots in the eternal flames of hell!

Goleck: The "Supreme Overlord"... An Overlord who is more powerful than all
        others.
Goleck: But, they say that there is one who surpasses even him: "The Lord of
        Terror".
Laharl: Hmph... There is no such thing as someone stronger than the Overlord.
Laharl: That's just a legend.

Manty: Whoever sent that challenge must have a lot of confidence.

Dratti: From one thing to the next... It must be hard, Prince.
Laharl: If you think so, then lend me a hand.
Dratti: Hahaha, that's a good one.

Gargo: I'm actually a father of two<3

Ghoss: Ah, Prince. I heard about the embarrassing photos. 
Ghoss: I never thought that a demon like you would be into that kinda stuff<3
Laharl: How could this be happening...? My life will be over if those pictures
        get out...!

Zommie: "Jotunheim" is a land so cold that even your blood freezes...
Zommie: Big deal, right?

Dimensional Gatekeeper: The location specified in the challenge was Jotunheim,
                        correct?
Laharl: Why? Is something wrong?
Dimensional Gatekeeper: Well... The gate that leads there is being opened from
                        the other side. It's as if someone were waiting for 
                        you, Prince... 
Laharl: Hmph. A confident foe, isn't he?
Laharl: Very well! This may be a trap, but I'll enjoy it anyway!

Voice: If I thought something needed to be done, I would have done it long ago.
Voice: ...I have faith in her.
Seraph: ......
Voice: *chuckle* You worry needlessly. 
Voice: But, I understand. I shall take measures, just in case.

[Camera shows an icy field]

[Laharl, Etna, and Flonne all walk onto the map and are soon surrounded by
Nekomatas and Succubi]

Sexy Demon: *giggle* What a cute little boy<3

[Screen flashes red as Laharl is knocked backward]

Laharl: Gaaaaaaaaahhhhhh!!

[Camera angle shifts to the front of Laharl as Etna and Flonne turn toward him]

Flonne: Laharl, why are you screaming?
Laharl: I, I don't know why... But for some apparent reason, I can't stand 
        women with sexy bodies.
Laharl: On a side note... Flat-chested girls like you have absolutely no effect
        on me.

[Etna and Flonne close in on Laharl as their eyes turn red]

Etna & Flonne: Well, excuse us for being flat!!

[Vampire demon appears above the crowd]

????: Hmhmhm...
????: Hahahahaha!!

[Laharl takes a few steps toward the vampire demon]

Laharl: Y, You're...!

[Etna takes a step forward]

Fearless Demon: It has been awhile, Prince. Do you still remember me?
Laharl: How could I forget you?
Laharl: You're Maderas, the vassal who was banished from the castle for 
        stealing my old man's favorite snack, black pretzels.
Flonne: *sigh* Now, that's what I call "pathetic".
Laharl: So, black-pretzel-snatcher-slash-outcast, what is it that you want from
        me now?
Maderas: I wish to become Overlord, of course.
Laharl: Hmph, what a joke. What could you, a pathetic loser banished for 
        stealing pretzels, possibly do to me?
Maderas: Stop talking so tough, Prince. I know all of your weaknesses.
Maderas: Isn't that right, Etna?
Laharl: ---------!!?

[Laharl turns to face Etna]

Laharl: Etna... You...!?

[Camera turns to face Etna as she turns around]

Etna: ......
Maderas: Hahahahaha!
Maderas: You just realized it? Fool!
Maderas: Yes... Etna is my loyal dog.
Maderas: As long as I hold her memory in my hands, she'll do whatever I ask.
Etna: ......

[Flonne turns to face Etna]

Flonne: Etna...?
Maderas: Now, dear Prince... This place shall become your grave.

[Laharl and Flonne turn to face Maderas]

Maderas: Etna, you've served your purpose.
Maderas: I am quite pleased with the results. Now, die alongside your Prince.

[Etna turns to face Maderas]

Etna: But, we had a deal...!
Etna: What about my memory!?

[Camera turns to face Maderas]

Maderas: What good are memories to you when you are about to die? Hmhmhm...!
Maderas: Hahahahaha!!

[Maderas disappears]

Laharl: ...It all makes sense now. No wonder he knew my weaknesses.

[Laharl turns to face Etna]

Laharl: You took those photos, too, didn't you!?

[Etna turns around]

Etna: ......

[Flonne and Laharl face each other]

Flonne: Laharl... It was only because that demon stole her memory...
Laharl: Silence! I accept no excuses from a traitor!
Laharl: Stop blabbering and get these sexy women outta my sight!!

[Fade to black]

   --- d. Ice Queen ---

[Camera shows an icy throne room]

Maderas: Hmhmhm... You don't know when to give up, do you, Prince?
Maderas: But, your luck ends here.
Sexy Demon: Hi there, little boy<3

[Screen flashes red]

Laharl: Ugahhhh!!
Maderas: That's not all... Take this!
Sexy Demon: A ray of hope<3

[Screen flashes red]

Laharl: Ugh!!
Sexy Demon: A pure heart<3

[Screen flashes red]

Laharl: Stop it...!!
Maderas: Hahahahahaha!
Maderas: Can you withstand an attack against both of your vulnerabilities? 
Laharl: Ugh...!!
Flonne: Laharl, hang in there!
Voice: Whoa, hold it right there!
Mid-Boss: When a lovely flower sheds a tear, I am there to wipe its sadness
          away. My flower shall bloom, bearing love...
Mid-Boss: They call me the Dark Adonis...
Maderas: Who are you!? What is your name!?
Mid-Boss: As I said, I am the Dark Adonis...
Maderas: I don't care who you are! Interfere, and you shall regret it!
Mid-Boss: My! You are the one who asked moi for my name!
Mid-Boss: ...In any case, I am not here to see you.
Mid-Boss: Now then, how is everyone doing? You seem to be having some 
          difficulty...
Laharl: ...What are you here for?
Mid-Boss: Oh, how can you be so discourteous to moi?
Mid-Boss: You seem to be working your way into quite a predicament. As your
          rival, I felt it was my obligation to warn you.
Laharl: Warn me...!?
Mid-Boss: Laharl!! Do not be fooled by appearances!
Mid-Boss: Relying on sight and sound will only lead to delusion!!
Mid-Boss: Open your mind's eye! Once you do, you will no longer be deceived by
          mere facades!!
Laharl: My mind's... eye...?
Mid-Boss: Now is the time to set your mind free!! Awaken to your power!!
Flonne: ...Um, Mr. Mid-Boss.
Flonne: That was a wonderful speech and all, but I think you may have set the
        bar a bit too high for Laharl...
Mid-Boss: Oh... In that case, just close your eyes and plug your ears!

[Fade to black]

[Screen flashes white]

Laharl: Hmhmhm... Now, I have no weaknesses!
Laharl: The tides have turned, Maderas!
Maderas: Hmmmmmmmmmm...!!
Maderas: E, Etna! What are you waiting for!? Kill Laharl!
Maderas: If you refuse, I'll erase your memory for good!
Etna: Go ahead, why don't ya?
Maderas: What!?
Etna: Two years ago... when the King died, I followed your orders and poisoned
      the Prince...
Etna: ...so that you would give me back my memories.
Laharl: What!? You tried to poison me!? Then, that long nap was all because 
        of...
Flonne: Your ears are plugged, yet you still manage to hear that one line?
Etna: That's right... It was because of the poison...
Etna: But, I hated myself for working under Maderas.
Etna: I didn't wanna go on living like that.
Etna: So, I devised a plan to escape from under his thumb.
Maderas: Th, Then, why have you been following my orders until now...?
Etna: *giggle* You mean it's not clear to you? Let me explain it, then...
Etna: I was waiting for just the right moment to get my revenge on the bastard
      who ruined my life!
Etna: From now on, I'll lead my life any way I choose. And no one's gonna stop
      me!
Maderas: How dare you turn against me! You double-crossing back-stabber!
Etna: Ahhh... The whining of a sore loser. It's music to my ears<3
Maderas: Dammit! Prinnies, make mincemeat out of her!!
Prinny Squad: ......
Maderas: P, Prinnies?
Etna: You don't get it, do you? I just told you that I've been waiting for this
      moment.
Etna: I bought out the Prinnies you hired to watch over me a loooong time ago.
      Comprende?
Etna: You're just a stupid fool who fell for my trap, and the Prince was my 
      bait.
Laharl: Hmph... Using me as bait... You're one ruthless girl.
Etna: Oh Prince, don't flatter me so much. It's not like Flonne or Mid-Boss 
      were part of the plan.
Mid-Boss: Hmmmm... Women are scary.
Maderas: Ugh...!!
Etna: From this day on, you're gonna pee in your pants every time you hear my
      name. You ready?<3

[Fade to black]

[After the battle, camera shows the map where the battle took place]

Maderas: Eeeeeep!! F-Forgive me!!
Maderas: Please, spare my life! I beg you!!
Etna: What should I do?
Maderas: Forgive me, o Master Etna! Your strength, beauty, and intelligence are
         unsurpassed in all the Netherworld!
Etna: Well, killing a loser like you would only dirty my hands, so I'll forgive
      you.
Etna: ...You know what I want, right?
Maderas: Y-Yes!
Maderas: I will return Master Laharl's candid photos immediately, as well as
         your memory! I'll return everything!

[Maderas joins the party]

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows the same map in which the battle took place]

Etna: Phew... That settles that. Doesn't it, Prince?
Laharl: No, it doesn't!!
Laharl: You tried to poison me in my sleep... You used me as bait for your
        revenge... What kind of vassal are you!?
Flonne: B-But Laharl...
Laharl: ...But!
Laharl: But, I don't mind that side of you.
Laharl: A true demon is always full of ambition, and aims for the top.
Laharl: As King, I'll need a right-hand demon like you under my command.
Etna: Prince...
Laharl: Listen up! I'm going to work you into the ground! You better be 
        prepared for it!
Etna: Uh-uh. YOU better be prepared.
Etna: I'll be watching your every move. If you don't prove yourself worthy of
      the throne...
Etna: An accident may happen<3
Laharl: Hmph... You can take my place if that happens.
Etna: *giggle* Don't worry, I will.
Flonne: ...That's strange.
Flonne: ...Laharl and Etna reconciled, despite all that's happened.
Flonne: I don't understand it, but I guess demons have their own way of 
        expressing love.
Flonne: *giggle* I'm really surprised.
Flonne: I have never experienced anything like this before in Celestia...

battle, then choosing to kill Maderas)

Maderas: Eeeeeep!! F-Forgive me!!
Maderas: Please, spare my life! I beg you!!
Flonne: W, Wait!
Etna: What?
Flonne: I understand how you're feeling... But, you don't have to kill him!
Etna: If you don't kill guys like this when you get the chance...
Etna: ...then they always come back with a vengeance. Understand?
Flonne: No, that's not true! Can't you see that he wants to repent for his
        sins?
Etna: Yeah, right. Just stay outta my way.
Flonne: If you plan in killing him, then you'll have to go through me first!
Etna: ...You serious?
Flonne: I'm serious!
Etna: ...Hey, what's that over there?
Flonne: Huh?
Etna: Gotcha!

[Screen goes black, then multiple white flashes appear]

[Camera shows a series of screen shots in a comic book fashion]

Etna: Hi, everybody, I'm Etna! I'm a 1st-grader at Netherworld Elementary!
Laharl: You look and act like a 1st-grader, that's for sure.
Etna: My dream is to become a witch, so I can get a cute boyfriend!
Laharl: Boyfriend? That's dumb.
Etna: Lovely, sexy... Hey! No touching!
Etna: Boys of the world, be my loyal slaves!
Laharl: Who'd want to touch you?
Etna: Next on Evolutionary Magical Girl Etna, Episode 6: Curse You, Flonne!!
Etna: Get ready to be spellbound<3
Laharl: Aren't you embarrassed to say something like that?
Etna: Not at all.

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows Laharl's throne room as words written on a letter scroll]

"Dear Sirs and Madames,
I hope these dark days find you well.

However, I, Laharl, am deeply concerned with the state of the Netherworld.

I am well aware that unnecessary bloodshed is not your desire.

Therefore, I am writing to propose a formal challenge, an event with my 
father's title at stake - the title of Overlord.

The rules are simple.

On Curseday, in the Month of Adder, I shall journey to the Heart of Evil, 
carrying with me the official Deed.

The one who wrests the Deed from my hand shall be recognized as the new 
Overlord.

In the event that I reach my destination still in possession of the Deed, I
shall assume the position myself.

Sincerely,
Prince Laharl"

Laharl: Whaddya think? Excellent penmanship, huh?
Flonne: Y, Yes. But, according to the Netherworld calender, isn't today the
        designated day?
Laharl: That's right. I've ordered the Prinnies to spread copies of this letter
        all over the Netherworld.
Laharl: The demons aiming to become Overlord are probably lying in ambush right
        now.
Etna: Ummmm, Prince? Is this offer open to anyone?
Laharl: Are you an idiot?
Laharl: Don't you get it? There's no Deed for the position of Overlord.
Etna: Huh?
Laharl: This is a trap.
Laharl: Look at what's happened recently. I thought that I might as well get
        rid of anyone still planning to claim the throne.
Etna: Oh, I see.
Laharl: And when I've defeated them all, I will be the unquestioned Overlord!
Laharl: Hmhmhm...
Laharl: Haaahahahaha!!

[Laharl speaks to everyone in the castle]

Dimensional Gatekeeper: Good morning, Prince.
Laharl: Morning. Uh... Is it me, or am I missing vassals?
Dimensional Gatekeeper: Do not worry. They are all waiting to ambush you at
                        "Blair Forest", Prince.
Laharl: ...Those idiots...!!

Laharl: Hey.
Flonne: Yes?
Laharl: I encouraged everyone to participate, but...

[Camera shows a map packed with demons]

Laharl: ...isn't this a bit much?

[Flonne steps forward and faces Laharl from his left]

Flonne: "The more, the merrier," they say.

[Etna steps forward and faces Flonne]

Etna: Flonne, when it comes to sayings, you're all thumbs.

[Laharl turns toward Etna]

Laharl: ...You're not much better.

[Laharl turns toward the demons]

Laharl: Anyways, what are we going to do about these guys?

[Etna and Flonne turns toward the demons]

Laharl: There's not even room to walk.

[Etna steps forward]

Etna: It looks like we'll have to take them on one by one.

[Laharl sulks]

Laharl: Oh, great... I can't wait to see what's after this.

[Fade to black]

   --- b. Ritual Site ---

[Laharl, Flonne, and Etna walk onto a map featuring a lone Knight]

Knight: I hath been waiting for thee. Thou art Lord Laharl, art not thou?

[Camera angle shifts to face Etna as she takes a step forward]

Etna: Oooh. She seems a lot more serious than that last bunch.

[Flonne takes a step forward]

Flonne: She does not appear to be an ordinary swordswoman. How exciting!

[Camera turns to face the Knight as she steps forward]

Knight: My name is Sardia the Demonslayer. My sword hath slayeth over 2000
        demons...

[Etna steps forward]

Etna: Incredible!
Sardia: ...Or, was it under 2000?

[Laharl steps forward]

Laharl: Which is it!?

[Sardia swings her sword forward]

Sardia: When I swingeth my sword, the earth shall be torn asunder...

[Flonne steps forward]

Flonne: Amazing! The earth splits open!?
Sardia: ...Perhaps.

[Laharl steps forward]

Laharl: Make up your mind, dammit!

[Sardia puts her sword away]

Sardia: What dost thou thinketh?

[Camera angel shifts to face Laharl as his eyes turn red]

Laharl: How should I know!?
Laharl: Trying to make a fool out of me? I'll soon make you moan in pain!!

[Etna takes a step forward and faces Laharl]

Etna: Prince, did you mean to say, "scream in pain"?

[Fade to black]

   --- c. Witches' Den ---

[Camera shows an area within Blair Forest]

Flonne: Huh? Prinnies?
Laharl: What are you doing here?
Prinny Squad: We thought we might as well give it a shot, dood.
Etna: What!? You're not allowed to pull of a coup d'etat without me!
Etna: I'm the one who's supposed to kill the Prince!
Flonne: Etna, it might not be such a good idea to announce that in front of the
        person in question.
Prinny Squad: We know a head-on attack is suicide, dood.
Laharl: Hm? You have a plan, then?
Prinny Squad: That's right, dood!!
Prinny Squad: Alright! Let's go, doods!!

[Screen fades to white]

[Camera shows a baseball field with the Prinny Squad lined up]

[Prinny Squad assumes their positions]

Prinny Squad: We challenge you to a game of baseball, dood!!

Etna: Certainly.

[Laharl, Etna, and Flonne walk into an area within Blair Forest]

[A giant demon appears out of thin air]

Demon: Mwahahahahaha!!
Demon: Kid! Are you Krichevskoy's son!?

[Laharl steps forward]

Laharl: Who are you?
Demon: Me!? I am the Overlord of an alternate Netherworld!
Laharl: An alternate Netherworld?
Overlord: That's right! I tried taking over this world before, but Krichevskoy
          got in the way!
Overlord: Now that he's dead, I'll claim it for my own!
Overlord: You are just one of the Overlords that I will crush on my way to 
          becoming the "Supreme Overlord"!
Overlord: Puny boy! What you see before you represents only a fraction of my 
          power!
Laharl: Well, that's really hard to tell, since I can only see part of you.

[Etna steps forward]

Etna: Yep. You're just too big.
Overlord: ...Fine! If it's size you're concerned about, I can make
          adjustments...
Overlord: But, even so, a horrible death still awaits you!
Overlord: Feel my wrath!
Overlord: Here I go! Doppelgangerrrrrrrr!

[Screen fades to white]

[Camera shows ten versions of the giant demon standing in front of the party]

Overlords: You see this? This is the famous Doppelganger spell!
Overlords: How do you like it? There are 10 Overlords now. You're speechless,
           aren't you!?

[Laharl steps back]

Laharl: Tch...!

[Camera angle shifts to face Flonne as she steps forward]

Flonne: Don't worry! Splitting into 10 means that his love is divided 10 ways!
Flonne: We cannot possibly lose to someone like that!

[Laharl and Etna turn to face Flonne]

Etna: Ohhh, Flonne's burning with determination! You like this stuff, don't
      you?

[Flonne turns to face Laharl and Etna]

Flonne: Yes. I love this stuff!

[Flonne's eyes light on fire, and she then turns to face the Overlords]

Flonne: Now, let's go, everybody!!

[Fade to black]

[In battle, the party gets their asses handed to them]

[Fade to black]

[After the battle, the camera shows Laharl, Etna, and Flonne facing the 
Overlords]

[Laharl turns toward Flonne]

Laharl: Ugh...! "His love is divided ten ways!" Yeah, sure... That was a BIG
        help, you loony angel!!
Flonne: Hmmm, that's odd. Isn't the hero supposed to win?

[Etna turns to face Flonne and sulks]

Etna: Ummmm... We're demons, not heroes.

[Camera angle shifts to face the party as they all turn to face the Overlords]

[One of the Overlords steps forward]

Overlord: Mwahahahahaha!! Even if my power is divided, an Overlord is still an
          Overlord.
Overlord: It wouldn't matter how many puny boys like you there were, I'd crush
          them all!
Overlord: I thought the son of Krichevskoy would be a lot tougher, but I guess
          I was wrong!!

[Laharl steps back]

Laharl: Dammit...!

[Overlord roars]

Overlord: Die, punk! Say hello to Krichevskoy in hell!
Voice: Wait just a minute!

[Laharl, Etna, and Flonne all turn around to see Goleck, Manty, Dratti, Gargo,
Ghoss, and Zommie appear behind them]

Laharl: Y, You guys...!?

[Overlord steps forward]

Overlord: W, Who are you!?

[Zommie jumps right in front of the Overlord]

Zommie: We are the loyal vassals of King Krichevskoy...

[Ghoss jumps and stands next to Zommie]

Ghoss: You dare set foot in our world? We will defeat you in the name of the 
       late King!!

[The rest of Krichevskoy's vassals all surround Laharl, Etna, and Flonne]

[Overlord steps back]

Overlord: Hmmm...!!

[Laharl, Etna, and Flonne all face Manty as he steps forward]

Manty: Prince! Let us handle this!

[Gargo takes a few steps toward Laharl]

Gargo: We've been waiting here in case our help was needed.
Etna: Liars.
Etna: You were here to ambush the Prince just like the others, isn't that 
      right?

[Goleck steps back as Laharl, Etna, and Flonne turn to face him]

Goleck: Ah, ah, ahahahahaha! O-Of course not. Oh, come now.
Flonne: ...Looks like you hit the nail on the head.

[Laharl turns around and sulks and Flonne and Etna face him]

Laharl: Why is it that I don't have any luck with vassals...?

[Laharl, Flonne, and Etna turn to face Dratti as he steps forward]

Dratti: Come, now. We were here to help you in your time of need, right?

[Laharl's eyes turn red]

Laharl: Only because you were waiting to ambush me!

[Camera turns to face the Overlords as everyone turns to face him]

[Overlord steps forward]

Overlord: Hey! Quit ignoring me!!
Overlord: I'll send you all to join Krichevskoy!
Overlord: Prepare yourselves!!

[Overlord roars]

[Zommie steps forward]

Zommie: Hmph...! Don't underestimate us!
Zommie! We will defeat you in the name of Overlord Krichevskoy!!

[All the monsters on the screen roar]

[Fade to black]

[After the battle, the entire team is shown standing on the battlefield]

Zommie: We'll be returning to the castle now. Take care, Prince.

[Krichevskoy's vassals all walk away]

[Etna turns to face Flonne]

Etna: They're actually pretty strong...

[Flonne turns to face Etna]

Flonne: "A wise falcon hides its talons". That saying fits perfectly.

[Laharl turns around and sulks]

Laharl: I wish they would stop hiding their talons when it comes to working for
        me...

[Fade to black]

(NOTE: If you manage to defeat the Alternate Overlords in the first battle,
which will most likely be on a second playthrough, the battle simply ends and
you move right on to Nightdwellers. Krichevskoy's vassals never show up.)

   --- e. Nightdwellers ---

[Laharl, Etna, and Flonne all walk into an area within Blair Forest]

[A red character appears on the plateau above]

Red: We've been waiting for you, demons!!

[A blue character appears next to Red]

Blue: When the darkness of evil draws near, we appear out of nowhere!!

[A yellow character appears next to Red]

Yellow: The-3-lights-of-justice-save-the-world-with-courage-and-hope!!

[Red jumps down off the plateau]

Red: Together...!!

[Blue jumps down off the plateau]

Blue: ...we are...!!

[Yellow jumps down off the plateau]

Yellow: ...the Prism Rangers!!

[Prism Rangers strike a pose as lights glow around them]

[Camera angle shifts to face Laharl as he sulks]

Laharl: ...Please, someone normal come out.

[Flonne takes a few steps forward as her eyes turn red]

Flonne: Cool!

[Flonne turns around]

Flonne: Hey, Etna! How about we do our own poses!?

[Etna and Laharl turn to face Flonne]

Etna: You serious?

[Camera angle shifts to face Flonne]

Flonne: You better believe it!

[Flonne turns around to face the Prism Rangers]

Flonne: Um... But, I have a question for you guys.
Red: A question? Go ahead, shoot!
Flonne: You call yourselves "Prism Rangers", but you only have 3 colors. That's
        not even enough for a rainbow.

[Red steps forward]

Red: Isn't it obvious? We don't have any friends!
Red: Being a hero is a lonely existence!! You got it!?

[Etna turns to her right]

Etna: Are you sure there's not another reason why you don't have any friends?

[Laharl steps forward]

Laharl: ...You guys are heroes, aren't you? Why would you want to be Overlords?
Red: We want friends, of course! If we become the Overlords, then we'll have 
     tons of friends!!
Red: And the Prism Rangers will have all the colors of the rainbow!!

[Prism Rangers strike a pose as they glow in light]

Red: Here we go!! Blue! Yellow! Transfo------

[Etna flies out from behind Laharl]

Etna: Bang<3

[Etna shoots Blue and Yellow, and both fall to the ground]

Red: Bluuuuuuuuuuuuuuuueeeeeeeeee!!!! Yellowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!
Red: This can't be happening! Blue and Yellow have been shot...! I can't 
     transform on my own...!
Red: Curse you! Shooting before we even have a chance to transform... How
     inconsiderate!
Red: Are you demons!?
Etna: Uh huh.

[Piano chord strikes as the screen shakes]

Red: Oh my gosh! I completely forgot about that!
Laharl: ...Is your helmet on too tight?
Laharl: You should have transformed first, then come out.

[Flonne steps forward to face Laharl]

Flonne: That's not how it's supposed to be! A true defender of justice

[Etna takes a few steps forward]

Etna: ...Flonne, which side are you on?
Red: Then I'll just have to play my ace card! The demons I hired will help me!

[Everyone turns to face Red]

Laharl: Is it okay for a hero to be using demons?
Red: Of course! Justice must never lose, no matter what the means!

[Red jumps back onto the plateau above the main area]

Red: Blue! Yellow! Your deaths have awakened a burning passion in my heart!
Etna: Uh, I avoided hitting any vital spots, so they should still be alive...
Red: Evil fiends! Are you ready!?
Red: Face the power of justice!!

Etna: Prince, is this the Heart of Evil?
Laharl: That's right.
Flonne: No one's here.
Etna: Which means...
Voice: Now, hold it right there!!
Etna: Hey, it's Mid-Boss again.
Laharl: What do you want? I'm busy right now.
Mid-Boss: Tsk tsk tsk.
Mid-Boss: You weren't thinking about calling yourself the Overlord without
          first settling things with moi, were you?
Laharl: I already settled things with you. Twice, as a matter of fact.
Mid-Boss: Silly you. Did you think that I was serious?
Laharl: Weren't you?
Mid-Boss: Not at all! That was merely camouflage... so that you would let your
          guard down.
Mid-Boss: Now, you shall witness my true power!
Mid-Boss: I have attained ultra speed by training, and training, and training,
          all while wearing 100-ton boxers!!
Mid-Boss: Can your eyes keep up with moi!?
Mid-Boss: Here I come! The throne is mine!!

Mid-Boss: Ugh...!
Mid-Boss: Oooh...!!
Laharl: --------?
Mid-Boss: Sudden stomach cramps..!!
Mid-Boss: Just when I was getting started... I, I beg your pardon, but I need
          to use the restroom.
Mid-Boss: Consider yourselves lucky. You've been spared.
Mid-Boss: Au revoir!!
Laharl: He ran away...
Etna: His excuses are getting more and more pathetic.
Flonne: Huh? So... is that it?
Laharl: That means...
Laharl: I'm the Overlord!!
Laharl: Overlord! Overlord!! Overlord!!!!
Etna: Hmmm... The Prince is now the Overlord...
Etna: It's sooooo hard to believe.
Flonne: *giggle* Now, now.
Flonne: Look at him. He is so happy...
Flonne: He pretends to be evil, but he can be cute sometimes.
Etna: You think? He's just a kid, that's all.
Etna: Anyway, shouldn't you be worried?
Flonne: Huh? What do you mean?
Etna: You helped the Prince become the Overlord.
Flonne: Uh...

Vulcanus: Master Lamington! Master Lamington, are you here!?
Seraph: You make a ruckus every time you are here to see me, Vulcanus. What is
        it this time?
Vulcanus: How can I not make such a commotion!?
Vulcanus: Laharl, the son of King Krichevskoy, has been crowned the new 
          Overlord!
Seraph: Hmmm...
Vulcanus: That's not all! That trainee Flonne helped him win the throne!
Seraph: ...Is that so?
Vulcanus: This is no longer a case of disobeying orders. This is treason!
Seraph: You are correct.
Vulcanus: ...So, what are you planning to do!?
Seraph: Hmmm... I will need to think about it.
Vulcanus: Think about it? Think about it, you say!? This is a grave matter!!
Vulcanus: We can't just ignore it! I will handle this problem! You have no
          objections, do you!?
Seraph: *sigh* ...Oh, dear...

Flonne: If the Seraph hears of this, there is no telling what punishment
        awaits me!
Flonne: I might be dismissed from my Angel Trainee position!
Etna: Who cares? Why don't you change jobs now and become a demon?
Flonne: Nooooooo!

[Camera shows Laharl's throne room]

Laharl: Haaahahahaha!!!!
Flonne: Geez... You just keep laughing and laughing.
Laharl: How can I not?
Laharl: I'm not the Overlord. That means that I'm the most eminent demon in all
        of the Netherworld.
Flonne: I am aware of that.
Flonne: But, ever since you have become the Overlord, you have done nothing but
        laugh.
Laharl: You don't understand a thing. Laughing is a very important aspect of
        of being the Overlord.
Laharl: Besides, there isn't any urgent matter that suitable for my first act
        as King Laharl the Terrible.
Etna: Oh, Prince<3 I got a job for ya.
Laharl: Call me "Your Highness". I'm the Overlord now.
Etna: Aww, come on... That's a minor detail.
Laharl: MINOR detail...?
Laharl: ...So, what kind of job is it?
Laharl: You want me to make it rain pepper on Earth so they can't stop 
        sneezing?
Laharl: Or, do you want me to give human kids an addictive video game that will
        deprive them of their sleep?
Etna: Uh... No.
Etna: Come in, Aramis.
Aramis: ......
Laharl: Who's this kid?
Aramis: Don't call me a kid. You're more of a kid yourself.
Laharl: What!? Who the hell do you think I am!?
Flonne: Now, now. He is just a child.
Aramis: Shut up, flat-chest.
Flonne: WHAT DID YOU SAY, YOU...!?
Flonne: *gasp* I mustn't!
Flonne: At times like this, love is the answer! With love, there is 
        understanding!
Aramis: Hey, does she have a few screws loose or somethin'?
Laharl: Hmph...! You've got some attitude, kid.
Etna: Just like you, Prince.
Laharl: Yeah, right. So, what's he got to do with the job?
Etna: Oh, yeah. His pets are missing.
Laharl: Hm?
Laharl: ...And?
Etna: And your job's to look for them.
Laharl: Why would I, the Overlord, look for some stupid little brat's pets!?
Laharl: Ridiculous! Absolutely ridiculous!!
Laharl: Bring me something more fitting for my first task as Overlord!!
Etna: I refuse!!
Laharl: -----!?
Flonne: -----!!?
Etna: It may seem ridiculous to you, but it's important to him!!
Etna: This is a perfect way to begin your rule as Overlord!
Etna: And if you don't do it, I'm never gonna accept you as the Overlord!
Laharl: W, What are you getting so mad for? It's not like you.
Etna: Answer me! Will you do it or not?
Laharl: Ugh... F, Fine! I'll do it, I'll do it.
Aramis: Good! ...And you better not slack off!
Laharl: Ugh...! Why am I, the Overlord of the Netherworld, taking orders from
        this annoying brat...?

Goleck: Prince!
Goleck: Your highness!
Goleck: King Laharl!
Goleck: ...There's no ring to that. I think I'll stick with "Prince".
Laharl: ......

Manty: Your true value as Overlord will be decided by your future, not your
       past.
Manty: Please live up to your name, my Overlord.
Laharl: W, What are you all serious for?
Manty: Hahaha, don't worry, Prince. It was just a joke.
Flonne: I don't get demon jokes...

Dratti: The Prince is now King...
Flonne: You don't seem too happy.
Dratti: I'm not unhappy, it's just that I've always thought of King 
        Krichevskoy as the one and only King.
Etna: Yeah, I can understand that.

Gargo: It was only yesterday diapers, and now you're the Overlord...
Gargo: What is the world coming to?
Laharl: ...And what are you getting at?

Ghoss: About that Overlord from the alternate dimension...
Ghoss: He claimed to be an Overlord, but I heard demons of that level are
       everywhere in the other dimension.
Ghoss: The King told me once that the true ruler is a terrifying demon known as
       the "Lord of Terror".
Ghoss: Even the King was wary of him, so I can't imagine how strong he is.
Laharl: Hmph... That's just a legend.
Laharl: If such a fool does exist... I, Laharl, shall pummel him to the ground!

Zommie: There's been a flood of Zombies at "Salamander's Breath", Prince.

Dimensional Gatekeeper: Have you heard what's been happening at "Salamander's
                        Breath"? Supposedly, there's been a flood of zombies
                        recently.
Laharl: Zombies, huh...
Flonne: Could it be that Aramis' pet has been eaten by zombies?

Aramis: Ah! Miss Etna!
Aramis: That's one of my pets over there!
Flonne: Why is he only polite to you?
Etna: It's all about the special training I gave him.
Flonne: Oh, I get it! It's the power of love!
Etna: ...Sure, whatever you say.

[Camera shows an area within Salamander's Breath]

Zombie: OooooOooooooooOOhhh...
Laharl: A zombie.
Flonne: A zombie it is.
Laharl: Hey, brat. Don't tell me this one of your pets.
Aramis: Yeah. You got a problem with that?
Laharl: No. Actually, I like it. You've got good taste, kid.
Flonne: A zombie for a pet, huh...
Flonne: So... how do we catch it?
Laharl: Why not do the same thing we always do?
Etna: I guess that would work. I mean, zombies are already dead anyway. Let the
      massacre begin!
Laharl: Agreed!
Flonne: Um, are you sure that's okay...?

[Camera shows an area map within Salamander's Breath]

Laharl: *sigh* Boring.
Etna: Quit complaining. You wanna be a great Overlord or not?
Flonne: You sure are serious today, Etna.
Etna: I'm always serious.
Etna: Besides, the Prince needs to start acting more like his father.
Flonne: You mean, King Krichevskoy?
Etna: Uh huh.
Etna: Back when I just started working in the castle...
Etna: I was teased and picked on every day for being a commoner.
Flonne: YOU were? That's hard to believe.
Etna: At that time, I was still very naive. I was a scared little girl.
Etna: The only thing that helped me get through those days was my faithful pet.
Etna: But one day, I found him dead...
Etna: Those damn demons killed him.
Flonne: How cruel...
Etna: With no way to get back at them, I just cried...
Etna: That was when the King reached out his hand to me...
Etna: When I told him what happened, he helped me bury my pet.
Flonne: He must have been a kind man.
Etna: Kind...?
Etna: I don't know what kindness feels like, but he was a great man, and one 
      that I respected.
Etna: That was why I pledged to him my deepest loyalty.
Etna: But, the Prince... He's still not fit to succeed Krichevskoy as the
      Overlord.
Flonne: So, that's why you want Laharl to become just like his father...?
Flonne: *giggle* I see. You worry about Laharl after all.
Flonne: That's love.
Etna: I doubt it. If he fails, I'll just kill him.
Flonne: WHAT!?
Etna: Ahaha... Just kidding.
Flonne: Etna... You're starting to scare me...

Etna: Well, they DO come back to life after you kill them.
Laharl: Hey, brat.
Laharl: Is it okay with you if we tear your pets to shreds so they won't 
        bother us for awhile?
Aramis: Go ahead. I take them apart and put them back together again all the
        time.
Etna: I used to do that too, when I was a kid!
Etna: Ahh, those were the days.
Laharl: Stop reminiscing about your childhood.

Aramis: Check out that zombie.
Laharl: What about it?
Aramis: *sigh* Amateur. THAT is my masterpiece.

Laharl: H, Hmph...! Well, it IS part of my job as the Overlord...
Laharl: And don't bother to thank me. If you want to show your gratitude, you
        can repay me with your body.
Etna: Hmmm... I never knew you were like that...
Laharl: Idiot!
Laharl: I meant, become my vassal and serve me when you're old enough!
Aramis: ...Yes, Your Highness.
Laharl: Speak to me with respect from now on, got it?
Aramis: Yes, Your Highness!
Laharl: Hmhmhm...
Laharl: Haaahahahaha!!!!
Laharl: Did you hear that, Etna?
Laharl: That kid called me "Your Highness".
Laharl: So? Do you accept me as Overlord now?
Etna: Well... you passed for the time being.
Etna: But, be careful not to flunk out.
Laharl: Ugh...! Why you...!
Flonne: *giggle* Talk about strict.
Flonne: (Still, Laharl has changed quite a bit since the first time I met him.)
Flonne: (He is maturing little by little as he meets new people.)
Flonne: (And it feels like I have changed, too... since meeting him and his
        companions.)

        things...)
Flonne: (...whether you're an angel...

Flonne: They say that I see things the way I want them to be, so I wasn't sure

Flonne: But, it can't just be my imagination, if you noticed a difference, too.

Laharl: Why!?

Laharl: Hmmm...
Laharl: C, Come to think of it, 20-hour workdays with no days off WAS a bit
        harsh...
Flonne: In conditions like that, it's no wonder that they chose to 
        fly-by-night.
Laharl: Fly-by-night? Is there something you're not telling us?
Flonne: Uh, no... Nothing at all.
Big Sis Prinny: Prince.

Laharl: I'm not worried about THEM!
Laharl: If people hear that I let my vassals escape, I'll lose all respect!
Laharl: That's why we're gonna find them! ...Even if it is a big waste of time!
Flonne: That's so mean! You don't have to say it like that...!

       something they'll never get used to.

Laharl: What is that supposed to mean?
Ghoss: Oh, come now! You know what I mean<3

Zommie: Today, I'm going to give you a pretty straightforward hint.
Zommie: Go to the "Lunar Snowfield". The Prinnies are there.

Flonne: ...I don't know anything. And even if I did, I wouldn't tell YOU!
Laharl: Wh, What!?
Flonne: Prince Laharl, I have a name, and it's Flonne.
Flonne: It's not "Hey!" or "You!".
Flonne: You have never called me by my name, not even once, since the first
        time we met!
Laharl: S, So? What's it to you?
Flonne: People's feelings are delicate. They can be hurt by just the slightest
        insult.
Flonne: Laharl, you are too inconsiderate. You should approach people with more
        love.
Flonne: The Prinnies ran away because you have no love!
Laharl: What!? You stupid Love Freak!! Who do you think I------
Flonne: There! That's the attitude I'm talking about!
Flonne: You'll never become a respected Overlord with an attitude like that!
Etna: ...Flonne, that doesn't seem like the kind of advice an angel should be

Etna: Huh!? You kiddin'?
Etna: He's always been like that.
Flonne: I don't think that's entirely true.
Flonne: Haven't you noticed? His emotions are slowly changing.
Flonne: I thought that he had finally awoken to the power of love...
Etna: Oh, hohoho... So, that's why you were so angry.
Flonne: Y, Yes...
Etna: That's a demon for ya.
Etna: You seem to have your hopes pretty high, but don't you think that asking
      for love from a demon is a bit ridiculous?
Flonne: ...You think so?
Etna: ......
Etna: Well, the Prince's case is a bit unique...
Flonne: Unique?
Etna: Yep... You see, his mother...
Etna: ...the Queen, was an eccentric person.
Etna: She was always talking about love and kindness.
Flonne: That's not weird at all.
Etna: Well, I didn't hate her, but I guess she couldn't help it, being a human
      and all.
Flonne: A human?
Etna: Yep. She was a witch who came here to study.
Etna: The King fell in love with her at first sight. And eventually, the Prince
      was born. Yada yada yada.
Flonne: Hmmmm. Is that so?
Etna: She was always saying things like, "Demons can love, too".
Etna: Whenever the Prince did something bad, she would scold him, because she
      wanted to raise him to be a kind boy.
Etna: Maybe you remind him of his mother, Flonne.
Flonne: If he was raised that way, why is he like this now...?
Etna: ...The Queen died.
Flonne: Huh...?
Etna: A long time ago, the Prince was infected with a rare disease that even
      the King couldn't cure...
Etna: There was only one way to save him...
Flonne: Which was...?
Etna: The life of one who loved him...
Flonne: Then...
Etna: That's right... The Queen took her own life, despite the King's efforts
      to stop her...
Etna: ...It was at that point that the Prince started to hate love and 
      kindness...
Flonne: How sad...
Flonne: So unless his hatred fades, Laharl will have to live the rest of his
        life without love?
Flonne: ...That's just not fair!
Etna: ...Maybe so.
Etna: But, I don't think that he's intentionally trying to hate love.
Etna: Hatred isn't just something that disappears that easily, is it?
Etna: Maybe you were a bit rough on him today.
Flonne: Ah...!
Etna: Well, don't try to get me involved.
Flonne: ......

[Camera shows a dark area under a red full moon in the middle of the night;
white lights are floating up from the ground and into the sky]

Flonne: What are... those...?
Big Sis Prinny: Those are the souls of Prinnies who've atoned for their sins...
Big Sis Prinny: You know the legend, don't you? That inside the Prinnies are
                the souls of sinful humans...
Flonne: Yes... And that they work in Celestia and the Netherworld to atone for
        those sins.
Big Sis Prinny: That's right...
Big Sis Prinny: The red moon purifies their sins so they can be reborn...
Flonne: What a heartwrenching sight...
Laharl: Etna! Stop them!
Etna: Prince, weren't you listening? The Prinnies are being reborn...
Laharl: Shut up! I never gave them permission for that!
Laharl: We'll drag 'em back here if we have to!

Laharl: Who are you!?
Red Ghost: Take... Prinnies'... souls... to... red... moon...
Red Ghost: No... one... interfere...

Laharl: We'll see about that! Those Prinnies are mine!
Laharl: They're my vassals... for all eternity!!

ghost and the Prinny Squad again]

[Red ghost steps forward]

Red Ghost: Ohhhhh... Why... are... you... interefering... with... work...?
Laharl: Work?

[Camera spins to face Laharl]

[Big Sis Prinny steps forward and faces Laharl]

Big Sis Prinny: That's right, dood. You shouldn't interfere with Death's work,
                dood.
Big Sis Prinny: It's here to guide the souls of the Prinnies to the red moon.
                dood.
Big Sis Prinny: If you truly value your vassals...
Big Sis Prinny: ...If you have any love for them, then you should wish them
                good luck, dood.

[Death steps back from the party]

Laharl: Hmph... You sound just like that Love Freak...
Laharl: ......
Laharl: ...It's what's best for their sake?
Big Sis Prinny: That's right, dood.
Laharl: ...I see. Then, I'll let them go.
Big Sis Prinny: You understand, dood?
Laharl: ...Well, yeah.

[Camera spins to put the focus on Big Sis Prinny]

Big Sis Prinny: Thank goodness...
Big Sis Prinny: Then, I can leave without worry.

[Big Sis Prinny turns away from the party and walks toward Death]

[Etna and Flonne both step forward]

Flonne: Wait!
Flonne: What sin... What sin did you commit?
Big Sis Prinny: ......
Big Sis Prinny: I took my own life.
Big Sis Prinny: Taking your own life is a grave sin...

[Flonne steps forward]

Flonne: Why would you...?
Big Sis Prinny: ...To save my son's life.

[Exclamation points appear over everyone's head, and the camera centers on
Laharl]

Laharl: ------------!!
Big Sis Prinny: Because of my death, my son shut away his feelings...
Big Sis Prinny: But, he's changing ever so slowly.

[Big Sis Prinny turns around to face the party]

Big Sis Prinny: It's all thanks to the wonderful people around him...
Big Sis Prinny: My work here is done... The rest is up to my son.

[Big Sis Prinny turns around and walks towards Death]

[Laharl steps forward]

Laharl: ......!

[Death and the Prinny Squad move away from the party with their backs turned]

Flonne: You're just going to leave!?
Flonne: Not even a goodbye!? ...Despite how much you love him!?
Big Sis Prinny: ...What cruel words you speak.
Flonne: Eh...?

[Camera centers on Big Sis Prinny]

Big Sis Prinny: Of course I would like to reveal myself. Of course I would like
                to hug my son with my own hands.
Big Sis Prinny: But if we are destined to part again, then wouldn't it better
                to watch from afar and leave without saying a single word?
Big Sis Prinny: He has suffered enough already... My silence is how I show my
                love.
Flonne: ......
Flonne: ...I'm sorry.
Flonne: I tried to push my idea of love onto you without considering your 
        reasons...
Flonne: Without considering your feelings... I'm sorry...

[Big Sis Prinny turns to face the party]

Big Sis Prinny: Haha... Prince, you've met a wonderful person, dood.
Big Sis Prinny: Prince... take care.
Big Sis Prinny: Flonne, Etna... Take care of him for me.

[Etna steps forward]

Big Sis Prinny: ...Good bye.

[The entire Prinny Squad turns around]

[Big Sis Prinny reveals her true form as Laharl's mother]

[A white light comes up from Laharl's mother, and Big Sis Prinny collapses to
the ground]

Laharl: Ah...!

[Laharl runs toward the white light left by his mother, but it flies up to
the sky before he can reach it]

[The three memebers of the Prinny squad follow suit in sending their souls,
and finally, Death carries everyone to the aky]

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows a dark area under a red full moon in the middle of the night;
white lights are floating up from the ground and into the sky]

[Words appear on screen as Flonne narrates]

The red moon reflected in Laharl's eyes, swaying sadly.
A gentle, loving mother who gave up her life to save her son...
A son who could only accept his mother's death by denying love and kindness...
I can't imagine how painful, how diffiult it was for him.
I'm sure the red moon will wash away his sorrow.

Laharl: Love... huh...
Flonne: Huh...?
Laharl: ...Nothing.
Laharl: Let's return to the castle... Flonne.
Flonne: Laharl...

[Words appear on screen as Flonne narrates]

When Laharl called me by my name for the very first time, I noticed... that
the red moon no longer shone in his eyes.
I'll always remember the sad tale of a mother and her son...

[Words appear on screen as children sing]

Red moon, red moon...
Cleanses the sinful and makes them anew...
Shining brightly in the night sky,
waiting for the souls...
Who will be born again tonight?
Who will be born again tonight?

Handsome Man: Jennifer, how much longer before we go into hyperdrive?
Jennifer: Let me see, Gordon.
          ...About 5 minutes.
Gordon: I see. Only 5 minutes until we say goodbye to the earth...
Jennifer: Are you scared, Gordon?
Gordon: Hey, hey. You're joking, right?
Gordon: Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth, is afraid of nothing.
Gordon: You of all people should know that. You've been along on all my 
        adventures.
Jennifer: *chuckle* Right.
Robot: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP...
Gordon: Oh, sorry 'bout that. Of course I didn't forget you, Thursday.
Thursday: GORDON KEEPS STARING AT JENNIFER'S THIGHS. PERVERT PERVERT PERVERT...
Gordon: Hey! Why you!
Jennifer: Tea time's over, Gordon.
Jennifer: We have an incoming transmission.

Jennifer: I'm turning on the holographic projector.
Static Picture: ......Fffff......fffffff............
Gordon: Hi! You look good, General Carter!
Gordon: So, what can I do for you, Commander-in-Chief?
General Carter: You're moments away from entering hyperdrive. This will be your
                last contact with Earth.
General Carter: Do you have any messages, Gordon?
Gordon: Let me think... Tell everyone on Earth to have a grand parade ready for
        my return.
Gordon: Oh yeah! Don't forget the hot babes and Pizza Shack's Teriyaki Pizza.
General Carter: ...We'll see what we can do.
General Carter: I'm sure you don't need me to repeat this, but the Earth's fate
                is in your hands. We're counting on you.
Gordon: It's nothing I can't handle.

[Camera shows Laharl's throne room]

Prinny Squad: Dood... Prince, there's some kind of anomaly in the Stellar
              Graveyard.
Laharl: Invaders from another world?
Prinny Squad: I have no idea, dood.
Flonne: Invaders...?
Flonne: Are they angels who are here to take me back?
Etna: I doubt it. That place attracts a lot of weird things besides stars.
Etna: Flying saucers, probes, brain suckers, midgets with glowing fingertips...
Flonne: Oh, my... That means there may be people who are hurt.
Flonne: Let's go, Laharl.
Laharl: Forget it. It's probably just a piece of trash.
Flonne: Laharl!
Laharl: Geez... Shouldn't an Overlord be doing something more important than
        this?

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows Laharl standing in front of his throne]

[Laharl speaks to everyone in the castle]

Goleck: According to human belief, the Netherworld and Celestia both exist
        somewhere in space.
Flonne: Then, do humans consider us aliens?
Goleck: Most likely<3

Manty: The Stellar Graveyard is a magnet for space debris of all kinds.
Manty: Don't eat anything you find there.
Laharl: Like I would!!

Dratti: It's hard standing in the same spot all the time, you know.

Gargo: It's a bit late, but it's better to focus on one weapon rather than
       trying to balance all weapons.
Etna: ...More like it's too late.

Ghoss: It feels like something big's gonna happen. Oh, I'm so excited<3

Zommie: Not to brag, but I've never taken a bath in my entire life.
Laharl: Oh yeah? I've never brushed my teeth in my entire life, so there!
Flonne: That's nothing to brag about.

Dimensional Gatekeeper: I've been waiting for you, Prince. You are headed to
                        the "Stellar Graveyard", correct?
Dimensional Gatekeeper: People have been saying that I am spoiling you, but I
                        don't want you to get lost. I will see to it that you
                        get there safe.
Laharl: Listen, I'm not a child.

Thursday: UNFORTUNATELY, NO TRACE OF GORDON'S BIOLOGICAL SIGNATURE.
Jennifer: I see... We have to find him.
Jennifer: I heard at headquarters that the Netherworld is full of nasty, 
          vicious creatures.
Jennifer: If we're discovered...
Jennfier: Ahh! I'll be molested by countless slimy tentacles and my bodily
          fluids will be sucked dry!!
Jennifer: Or, we could be swallowed whole and suffer a slow and painful death
          as we're digested alive!!
Jennifer: Or even worse...
Thursday: JENNIFER, PLEASE KEEP YOUR IMAGINATION UNDER CONTROL.
Thursday: LIFE SIGNS DETECTED... READINGS DO NOT CORRESPOND WITH CAPTAIN

Thursday: LIFE FORMS ARE APPROACHING. OH $*&% RUN RUN RUN...!

Laharl: That's odd... I thought I heard a voice of a woman...
Jennifer: What? Human children in the Netherworld!?
Laharl: A human!? And on top of that, she's...!!
Jennifer: I got it! You were kidnapped by the Overlord, weren't you!?
Jennifer: Oh, the humanity! I heard that demons are merciless, even towards
          children!
Jennifer: Aww, you poor things...!
Jennifer: They didn't bite your arm off, did they!? They didn't suck your
          brains out, did they!? They didn't anal probe you, did they!?
Etna: What the hell does she think demons are!?
Jennifer: But, don't you worry, big sis will make it all better.
Laharl: N, No! Get away from me!
Jennifer: What?
Laharl: Keep your sexy body away from me!
Jennifer: Oh, I understand! You're going through puberty, aren't you?
Jennifer: Don't be embarrassed, little boy. Everyone goes through that period.
Jennifer: Okay, I'll teach you everything there is to know<3
Jennifer: You see, as young girls mature, their breasts grow bigger, and 
          boys...
Etna: ...Great, now she's teaching sex ed. Who the hell is this lady?
Flonne: Ummm... I'm sorry top interrupt you, but we're not human children.
Jennifer: Huh? ...What do you mean?
Flonne: I am Flonne, an angel in training...
Flonne: ...This is Etna, a demon.
Flonne: And the one you called "cute little boy" is the Overlord, Laharl.
Jennifer: ......
Jennifer: This is outrageous!! I can't believe such a cute little boy could be
          the Overlord!
Jennifer: This is completely different from the information provided by
          headquarters! What's going on, Thursday!?
Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... NOW CALCULATING, NOW CALCULATING...
Thursday: NOW CALCULATING, NOW CALCULATING...
Thursday: CALCULATION COMPLETE.
Jennifer: What's the answer?
Thursday: "HEADQUARTERS IS A BUNCH OF LIARS."
Jennifer: Oh, no! Does that mean that the Overlord planning to invade Earth is
          a lie, too!?
Jennifer: We came here to slay the Overlord, for heaven's sake! There must be
          some misunderstanding!
Laharl: Wait. Did I hear you say... You came here to slay the Overlord?
Jennifer: N, No no... Not me.
Jennifer: That's the responsibility of our hero, Captain Gordon, the Defender
          of Earth.
Jennifer: I'm his assistant, Jennifer. And this is Thursday, the multi-purpose
          super robot.
Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... NICE TO MEET YOU.
Laharl: Hero, you say?
Jennifer: Yes, Captain Gordon id the earth's hero. His noble mission is to
          vanquish any evil that threatens the earth.
Jennifer: But, we were separated from him when our spaceship crashed.
Laharl: Hmhmhm...
Laharl: Very interesting! I must definitely meet this Captain Gordon!
Flonne: Why is that?
Laharl: It is an Overlord's duty to challenge heroes!
Flonne: Wow... Cool!
Laharl: Woman, follow me! I shall find your hero!!
Jennifer: Really!?
Laharl: But, I don't want that sexy body of yours within a 3-foot radius of me!

Gordon: ......
Gordon: Hmmm... It appears that we've been separated.
Gordon: They haven't been captured by the Overlord, have they!?
Gordon: Even with Thurdsay's 200,000 horsepower engine, he can't take on the

Jennifer: ...Hey, Harlie.
Laharl: I am Laharl, not Harlie.
Jennifer: You really don't have plans to invade the earth?
Laharl: Earth is that rotten planet where humans foolishly pollute their own
        environment, correct?
Laharl: Why would I be interested in that?
Jennifer: ...You may be right, but the earth is still our home.
Jennifer: That's why Gordon and I risk our lives to protect it.
Jennifer: I always believed that was the right thing to do...
Jennifer: I don't know what to believe in now.
Jennifer: It doesn't seem like you're lying, Harlie. But, I don't want to think
          that my fellow earthlings are lying, either.
Laharl: What makes you think I'm not lying? I AM a demon.
Jennifer: I can tell by looking into your eyes. I believe you because your eyes
          are pure.
Jennifer: I don't know if it's pure good or pure evil, though *chuckle*
Laharl: Hmph! Nonsense.
Jennifer: (That man's eyes... Are they pure right now...?)
Jennifer: Well, either way, we have to find Gordon and uncover the truth, or
          else... Something terrible might happen.
Flonne: I agree. At this rate, a war might erupt between the Netherworld and
        the human world.
Flonne: We must prevent that.
Etna: Huhhhhh? Why? It'd be fun!
Flonne: Etna!

Gordon: Shut up, villainess!!

Etna: ...That didn't take long.

Laharl: We're in agreement this time, Flonne.
Laharl: Listen, Defender of Earth! If you can defeat me, I promise not to
        invade your planet.
Laharl: But if I win, then you agree to stay here in the Netherworld and become
        my vassal. How about it?

[Camera turns to face Gordon]

Gordon: Tch! Fine! A hero never backs down from a fight!

[Jennifer steps forward]

Jennifer: Gordon, listen...
Gordon: No need to worry, Jennifer.
Gordon: I eat guys like him for breakfast! Thursday and I can handle this by
        ourselves!
Gordon: All you have to do is believe in Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth,
        like always!!
Laharl: Haaahahahaha!! It's a deal, then!! Here I come, Defender of Earth!!

Seraph: It is always a serious matter when you come here. What is it this time?
Vulcanus: Flonne has killed a human in the Netherworld!!
Seraph: What? Flonne killed a human?
Vulcanus: That's right! Even if she is a trainee, an angel harming a human is a
          grave sin!!
Vulcanus: Is this forgivable!? No, such a sin cannot be forgiven!!
Seraph: ...But still, that is odd. Why would a human be in the Netherworld?
Vulcanus: W, Well...
Vulcanus: At any rate, I will make sure that Flonne is captured!!
Vulcanus: I will be using some of the troops. I have your permission, correct?
Seraph: ...Very well. I shall leave it to you, Vulcanus.
Vulcanus: Yes, sir!

Gordon: (What humiliation! The Defender of Earth working for the Overlord! I
        can't apologize enough to my predecessors!)
Laharl: Hmmmmm? You look unhappy.
Laharl: Don't tell me that a hero would break his promise, now.
Gordon: *groan*
Gordon: (A hero never breaks a promise!)
Gordon: (All I can do right now is endure this!)
Gordon: (As long as my faith does not falter, hope remains!!)
Gordon: (I've got it! I'll just pretend to obey him!)
Gordon: (And when he lets his guard down, I'll escape back to Earth!)
Gordon: (All right! I just need to have patience! Good thinking, Gordon!)
Laharl: Your eyes are full of hope... You're planning something, aren't you?
Gordon: N, No I'm not! I was just...
Jennifer: Morning, Harlie<3
Laharl: I told you not to call me that!
Jennifer: Why not? It's cuter that way.
Jennifer: Etna and Flonne and going to show me around the Netherworld, and 
          we're gonna have a picnic.
Jennifer: Why don't you come along, Harlie? We made a great lunch!
Gordon: Picnic?
Gordon: You must be joking, Jennifer! I, the Defender of Earth, am working, and
        you, my assistant, are working?
Jennifer: But Gordon, today's Sunday. It's a day off for everybody.
Gordon: Well, that's true, but...
Gordon: Thursday, you'll stay here and work with me, right?
Thursday: ROBOTS REQUIRE REST, TOO. THURSDAY WILL ATTEND PICNIC WITH JENNIFER.
          LALALA.
Gordon: Hey! You traitor!
Jennifer: There you have it, Gordon. We'll leave the chores to you.
Etna: ...So, where should we go?
Flonne: It's her first time in the Netherworld, so how about the Sea of 
        Gehenna?
Etna: Why!? It's so hot over there.
Jennifer: What kind of place is it?
Flonne: It's a big tourist spot. Since you're new to the Netherworld, you have
        to go check it out!
Jennifer: Is there a souvenir shop around?
Flonne: Um, it's not exactly the kind of place that sells souvenirs...
Etna: If it's souvenirs you're looking for, try Sphinx's on Sacrifice Street.
      They've got nice mummy heads, see?
Jennifer: Oh! How adorable!
Flonne: Hey! That's the Nether Year 666 Limited Edition model! I want one!
Etna: Heheh, too bad.
Jennifer: Okay, today it's a picnic at the Sea of Gehenna, and tomorrow it's
          shopping on Sacrifice Street.
Etna: Sounds like a plan!
Flonne: I'm in!
Laharl: ...Now I just plain pity you, Gordon.
Laharl: Alright, we're going to the Sea of Gehenna!
Laharl: I will never, ever allow those women to go picnicking on their own!
Gordon: That's a great idea! We should do it!
Gordon: It's not like we'd be going on a picnic, going lalala. Someone has to
        protect them!
Laharl: Right, let's go!
Gordon: (*snicker* Here's my chance!)
Gordon: (I'll sneak off and escape during the picnic!)

[Laharl speaks to everyone in the castle]

Goleck: Humans can only live for about 100 years? What a brief existence.
Gordon: It's not the length of your life, the the density of it!
Etna: Yeah, but you're dense in a different way.

Manty: Hmmm... So these are the Defenders of Earth...
Jennifer: Oh my god! Gordon, the lion is speaking!
Gordon: C-Calm down, Jennifer! This is the Netherworld! Lions can talk here!

Dratti: Humans must be tougher than I though, if one can survive against you.
Laharl: It's not much fun picking on the weak. I let him off easy this time,
        that's all. Don't get the wrong idea.

Gargo: You're probably the only Overlord ever to have humans and an angel as
       vassals.

Ghoss: There were other humans that came to the Netherworld, but not like 
       these...
Gordon: Hmmm? What do you mean by that?

Zommie: An angel assassin... An attack by humans... A lot has been happening
        lately...
Laharl: All thanks to my evil deeds. Hmhmhm...

Dimensional Gatekeeper: Picnic at the Sea of Gehenna, Prince? You are still
                        quite childish. *chuckle*
Laharl: N, No, I'm not! I'm going to investigate the area...
Gordon: Picnic, picnic, La la, la la, laaaaa.
Dimensional Gatekeeper: So... You ARE going on a picnic.

General Carter: It's past the scheduled time, and still no word from Gordon.
General Carter: Apparently, even the Defender of Earth was no match for the
                Overlord...
Sharp-Eyed Man: He's not the real Defender of Earth.
Sharp-Eyed Man: If you had just left it to me, I would have been done ages ago.
General Carter: Are you still carrying on about that? You need to be more 
                insightful, Kurtis.
General Carter: It doesn't really matter to me whether he wins or loses.
General Carter: His mission ended as soon as he opened a route to the 
                Netherworld. Slaying the Overlord was just a pretext.
Kurtis: Hmph. They're nothing but pawns to you, huh...
General Carter: What an ugly way of saying it, Kurtis. I prefer to call them
                the "heroes who sacrificed their lives for the earth".
General Carter: Muhahahaha!!
Kurtis: (Hmph... Gordon wouldn't die so easily.)
Kurtis: (Only I, Kurtis, can defeat him!)
Kurtis: (I bet he beat the Overlord already and is enjoying a picnic right now,
        going lalala)

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows an area within the Sea of Gehenna]

Gordon: Lalala.
Gordon: Hahahahaha!! I never thought that picnicking in the Netherworld would
        be so delightful.
Laharl: ...Is this guy really a hero?
Laharl: I'm not one to say, but... I always thought a hero was a bit more
        dignified.
Laharl: This guy's just a fool.
Flonne: No, a true hero hides his real identity from the world, pretending to
        be quiet or weak.
Flonne: Then, when someone needs to be saved, he appears admirably to uphold
        justice.
Flonne: That's right, isn't it?
Jennifer: Well, I guess...
Gordon: Lalala.
Etna: You sure? He looks like he doesn't have a care in the world...
Gordon: Lalala.
Gordon: (Alright, they're falling for my plan.)
Gordon: (Now, all I have to do is just play along until I can make a run for
        it!)

Gordon: Hey! What's wrong, Master?
Gordon: You're not having fun? I thought kids loved picnics. The sky is blue,
        the weather is perfect!
Gordon: Come on! Let's sing!
Laharl: I'm not a kid! I'm 1313 years old. And mentally, I'm much more mature
        than you, too.
Etna: Mature? I think you two are about the same.
      ...For your information, I'm 1470.
Flonne: I'm ummm... fairly young.
Laharl: Young? How old is young?
Flonne: Young is... young.
Laharl: You're an angel, aren't you? Tell the truth.
Flonne: ......
Flonne: One thousand... five hundred nine.
Etna: What!? You're older than me!?
Laharl: Haaahahahaha!! You old hag!
Flonne: I'm not old!!
Jennifer: ...That's amazing. No one would think you're that old.
Laharl: Hmph. That's why humans act so foolishly. They judge solely on looks.
Jennifer: Ooh, you talk big. Then you shouldn't mind my body, right?
Laharl: Uh... W, Well...
Laharl: I'm getting hungry. Let's eat.
Jennifer: *chuckle* Changing the subject, huh? I'll let it slide this time.
Flonne: Here's the picnic basket...
Mid-Boss: En garde!!
Flonne: Ah, the picnic basket!!
Mid-Boss: It has been a while, mademoiselle. The sweet smell of these entrees
          has led moi all the way here.
Etna: Hey, Mid-Boss! Give us back our food!!
Mid-Boss: Non non non non non... I cannot oblige.
Mid-Boss: For moi, a widower, this handmade lunch is like an oasis in a 
          desert...
Mid-Boss: I cannot give it back.
Laharl: You return after all this time, and for a stupid reason like this?
Flonne: Mr. Mid-Boss, you don't have anyone to make lunch for you? Poor 
        thing...
Mid-Boss: Stop pitying moi! That sends a sharp pain to my heart!
Gordon: Hold it right there!
Gordon: Mid-Boss, was it? That picnic basket is mine! Give it back, now!
Mid-Boss: Hmmm... You are a human, are you not?
Gordon: That's right! They call me Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth!!
Mid-Boss: And why is the Defender of Earth picnicking with demons?
Gordon: Sh, Shut up! I'm not here because I want to be!
Mid-Boss: Very well. I shall test your resolve, o Defender of Earth...
Mid-Boss: Now! Can you retrieve this basket from moi!? Haaahahahaha!!
Gordon: Hey, you! Wait!!
Laharl: It's so pathetic that we put up with that idiot...

Gordon: Hmmm... Where did our lunch go?
Etna: Let's go home. This is pointless.
Laharl: I agree.
Flonne: We can't leave now! We woke up early just to make it.
Gordon: That's right! As Defender of Earth, I cannot let our food fall into the
        hands of evil!
Laharl: You're just hungry.
Gordon: What are you talking about!? This is a challenge by evil! I cannot turn
        my back on this ordeal!
Gordon: Justice must prevail!!
Flonne: How wonderful! You really are a hero!
Jennifer: Gordon, let's have Thursday search for the basket using his olfactory
          tracking device.
Gordon: Oh yeah! I forgot about that!
Jennifer: Thursday, can you pinpoint the location where the picnic lunch's
          smell originates?
Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... NO PROBLEM, JENNIFER.
Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... ANALYSING AIR COMPONENTS. SMALL TRACES OF
          SCENT CONFIRMED.
Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... FACTORING IN WIND VECTORS.
Thursday: PROJECTED COORDIANTES LIE IN THE AREA UP AHEAD.
Jennifer: Thanks, Thursday. Hey guys, the culprit is up ahead.
Etna: That robot can do stuff like that, too? Pretty useful.
Gordon: Of course! Thursday is the multi-purpose super robot!
Gordon: And the creator of Thursday is none other than Jennifer!
Gordon: She was a child prodigy who invented Thursday at the age of 5 and 
        earned a Ph.D. in every subject by the age of 10!
Gordon: Without her help, we would never have understood the secret of the
        pyramids, or solved the case of Jack the Tripper!
Etna: ...So, why are YOU bragging?
Flonne: That's incredible, Miss Jennifer.
Jennifer: It's nothing, really.
Laharl: I thought you were just a dumb blonde, but I guess I was wrong.
Jennifer: Hmmmm? Who was the one saying not to judge people by their looks,
          Harlie?
Laharl: Uh... Did I say that?
Laharl: Anyways, we have to get the basket back before Mid-Boss eats it all!
Jennifer: *chuckles* You're right. Let's go.

[Camera spins to face Laharl as he steps forward and lights up with anger]

Laharl: Look who's talking!

[Camera spins to face Gordon as he steps forward]

Gordon: Give it up! I swear by the name "Defender of Earth", that I'll get that
        basket back!!

[Camera turns to face Mid-Boss]

Mid-Boss: Haaahahahaha!! You are going to get hurt if you think that I am your
          average picnic basket thief!
Mid-Boss: Very well! I shall demonstrate for you humans the elegant 
          techniques of the Dark Adonis!

Jennifer: To preotect the earth from evil!!
Thursday: THERE IS NO REST FOR THE CHAMPIONS OF JUSTICE.

Flonne: The people's cheers bring me courage!

[Flonne raises an arm in the air]

Flonne: The Warrior of Love, Guardian Flonne!!

Laharl: Why do I have to be a part of this...?

Etna: I have never been so embarrassed in all my life...

Mid-Boss: Haaahahahaha!! Your teamwork is terrible compared to the Defenders of
          Earth!

Laharl: You lose again. Now, give back the picnic basket.
Mid-Boss: Haaahahahaha!! Unfortunately for you, I have already consumed the
          contents!!
Gordon: You fiend! How dare you!
Mid-Boss: That means this duel is a draw!
Mid-Boss: We shall meet again! My compliments to the chef!
Flonne: Ahhhh... Our lunch...
Jennifer: Oh, it's okay. We can always make it again.
Gordon: Jennifer's right. Lunches are expendable.
Gordon: Which reminds me... I haven't had Pizza Shack's Teriyaki Pizza in a 
        long time.
Gordon: Now then, since this is all over, we'll be heading back to Earth.
Gordon: There's no need to shed any tears. So long, people of the Netherworld!
Gordon: (You go Gordon! Take it nice and easy!)
Gordon: (No one, not even a demon, can deny a man his Pizza Shack Teriyaki
        Pizza.)
Gordon: (Now, if I can just return to Earth and act like nothing ever
        happened...)
Etna: You know, I could care less about you leaving...
Etna: But, how do you plan on gettin' out of here?
Gordon: Huh?
Gordon: Nooooooooooooooooooooo!! Now that you mention it, our spaceship is in
        pieces!!
Gordon: We have no way of getting home!!
Jennifer: ...Gordon, you just realized that?
Thursday: GEEZ LOUISE.
Gordon: Ohhhhh... My perfect plan...
Laharl: Too bad, Gordon. Your fate is to be my vassal.
Gordon: Ugh...!
Gordon: Will we ever be able to return to Earth?
Gordon: Who will defend the planet now? Will my duty as Defender of Earth go
        unfulfilled...?
Laharl: ......
Flonne: Oh, yes. I have an idea, Mr. Gordon.
Flonne: Why don't you change from Defender of Earth to Defender of the
        Netherworld?
Gordon: Wha!? I, I could never do that?
Jennifer: Oh, come on, Gordon. The earth isn't the only world.
Jennifer: Our duty is to safeguard peace, whether it be on Earth, or in the
          Netherworld.
Gordon: Hmmmm... But, that title doesn't sound right...
Laharl: Fine, I'll give you a giid title. In the name of King Laharl, I 
        knight thee, "Slayer of the Netherworld".
Gordon: Hey, wait! That's not any better...
Laharl: I promoted you from being a vassal. Quit complaining.
Jennifer: Does that mean... we can stay here, Harlie?
Laharl: Your unusual abilities... They'll come in handy as I take control
        of the Netherworld.
Laharl: *sigh* I'll try to tolerate that sexy body of yours.
Flonne: *giggle* I never thought I'd hear the word "tolerate" come from his
        mouth.
Etna: That's as close to acceptance as he gets, right?
Etna: Of course, it could just be that he started liking sexy bodies...
Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL.
Gordon: It's not well!
Gordon: This is a dream! It must be a dream!
Gordon: Somebody tell me it's a dream!!

And that's how these people were welcomed into King Laharl's court.
I know I helped the demons get the humans on their side...
But these days, I'm not so concerned about that kind of stuff.
I hope one day all angels, demons, and humans can live happily together,
just as we do

Vulcanus: *grunt* That is correct.
General Carter: You're...! Is there something you want?
Vulcanus: No, I just came to make sure that you weren't backing out of this.
General Carter: We're preparing to launch the attack. Our fleet of space

I am the Defender of Earth.

Come to the Forest of the Dead.
There, you shall meet your doom.

Laharl: ...Okay! Let's go!
Etna: It's your duty as an Overlord, again?

Gargo: But, don't you think that raising them to be their best makes you a
       truly superb mentor?

Ghoss: Are there other Defenders of Earth?
Gordon: Well, not really...
Laharl: I'd be happy if there were. I would never be bored.

Zommie: Another Defender of Earth?
Zommie: You are just so popular.
Laharl: Of course.

Dimensional Gatekeeper: Prince, I hear that a hero challenged you to a duel.
Laharl: That's right. I'm on my way to beat him right now.

Gordon: Kurtis! Now that you mention it, you might be right!
Laharl: Who's this Kurtis?
Jennifer: Kurtis is the other Defender of Earth.
Etna: The OTHER Defender of Earth? There's more than one of 'em?
Jennifer: No, the true Defender of Earth is Gordon.
Jennifer: Kurtis calls himself the Defender of Earth and tries to steal work
          from under us.
Jennifer: But, as much as I hate to admit it, he has managed to save the earth
          on a few occasions.
Jennifer: That's why you could say that there are 2 Defender of Earth right 
          now.
Flonne: Hmmmm. Sounds complicated.
Laharl: It worked out fine in the end, since one has become Slayer of the
        Netherworld.

Laharl: He's my vassal. He lost to me in battle, so I made him my slave.
Laharl: His new name is Slayer of the Netherworld.
Old Man: What was that!? The Defender of Earth is now the Overlord's vassal!?

[Gordon steps forward]

Gordon: S, Sir!?

[Old Man turns away from the party]

Old Man: How shameful... How disgraceful... The Defender of Earth has sunk so
         low...
Gordon: Hey! You haven't heard the whole story!
Gordon: Besides, you haven't even introduced yourself yet!
Old Man: ...Me?
Old Man: I'm Don Joaquin, the original Defender of Earth...

[Don Joaquin turns around, walks away, and disappears]

Gordon: The original... Defender of Earth...?

[Camera turns to face Etna as she steps forward]

Etna: That ol' man? Sounds fishy to me.

[Camera turns to face Jennifer as she turns to face the party]

Jennifer: No, it may be true. My father used to tell me about him.
Jennifer: Hundreds of years ago, the first Defender of Earth left for the
          Netherworld to vanquish the Overlord, and never returned...

[Camera turns to face Flonne as she steps forward]

Flonne: But, how is he still alive? Compared to the typical human life span,
        he should have passed away a long time ago.
Laharl: That's probably his soul.
Laharl: He probably couldn't rest in peace until he defeated the Overlord, so
        his soul remained behind.
Flonne: Why...?

[Camera turns to face Gordon as he turns to face the party]

Gordon: There's only one thing!!

[Gordon begins to glow]

Gordon: It's his duty as a hero!
Etna: He's starting to sound like you, Prince...

[Gordon stops glowing]

Gordon: I'm so touched!
Gordon: The idea of him still struggling to fulfill his duty, transcending 
        time! A true Defender of Earth!!
Gordon: I'm proud to follow in his footsteps!!


[Etna steps forward]

Etna: But, I don't think an old man like that could defeat the Prince even in
      a thousand years.
Gordon: Yeah... I see your point.

[Camera turns to face Flonne as she steps forward]

Flonne: But, we have to help him! We can't just leave him like this!

[Laharl turns towards Flonne]

Laharl: ...Hey, Love Freak. You're not trying to force your beliefs on me 
        again, are you?
Flonne: Bingo<3
Flonne: Next time we run into him, let's lose on purpose.
Flonne: That way, he'll finally be satisfied, and his spirit will ascend to
        heaven.

[Etna turns towards Flonne]

Laharl: Don't be ridiculous! I have a duty to fulfill, too! I can't lose on
        purpose!
Flonne: Why? Is it that big a deal?
Flonne: Are you that selfish that you can't even save a poor hero's soul?
Laharl: Shut up! This is between me and him! So, stay out of it!!
Flonne: ......

[Laharl turns around]

Laharl: ...We're going in after him!

Gordon: Huh!? Wh, What's wrong, Thursday!?
Jennifer: Oh, no!
Jennifer: The shock from that old man's attack has short-circuited him!
Gordon: Can you repair him, Jennifer!?
Jennifer: Even though I built Thursday when I was 5, I can't fix him without
          the proper equipment.
Thursday: BEEP... BEEP BLIP...
Jennifer: Ahhh... The damage to the Memory Circuit is extensive.
Jennifer: Is Thursday overheats, then his entire memory will be lost.
Gordon: Hmmmm... That leaves me no choice. Thursday, you're going to have to
        sit on the sidelines for now.
Thursday: BEEP...BLIP BEEP... W, WAIT. THURSDAY CAN FIGHT.
Gordon: I won't allow it. We can't afford to lose you.
Jennifer: Gordon's right. You heard what I said, didn't you? Your memory could
          be lost.
Jennifer: If that happens, you'll forget about Gordon and I, and all the
          wonderful memories that we've shared together.
Thursday: BE...EP... THURSDAY FIGHT ANYWAY.
Gordon: Thursday...!
Thursday: EVEN THOUGH THURSDAY ROBOT, GORDON AND JENNIFER CALL THURSDAY FRIEND.
Thursday: THURSDAY HAPPY. THURSDAY WANT TO SHOW GRATITUDE...
Thursday: THURSDAY MAY LOSE MEMOERY IF PARTICIPATION IS RESUMED...
Thursday: LOSE MEMORY. VERY SAD...
Thursday: BUT BEING USELESS EVEN MORE SAD...
Thursday: THAT IS WHY THURSDAY FIGHT ALONGSIDE YOU UNTIL VERY END...
Gordon: Thursday...! Ughhhh... *sob*...!
Laharl: What's wrong, you gotta go?
Flonne: No he doesn't! He's been touched by Mr. Thursday's heart!
Etna: Heart? Robots have hearts?
Gordon: What are you saying! Thursday's words are the very heart of a Defender
        of Earth!!
Gordon: It doesn't matter if he's human or robot; he has the same burning 
        spirit deep inside of him!
Gordon: Thursday!
Thursday: YES, CAPTAIN GORDON?
Gordon: Your noble spirit has touched my heart! No matter what the outcome, I
        will be proud to fight beside you!
Gordon: Now, join us, Thursday!
Thursday: BEEP BEEP...
Thursday: THANK YOU, CAPTAIN...
Thursday: THURSDAY SO GLAD TO HAVE MET YOU...

[Don Joaquin appears ahead of the party]

Don Joaquin: I've been waiting for you, Overlord!!
Don Joaquin: Countless years have passed since I left my home, Earth, so far
             away!! How I've dreamt of this day!!
Don Joaquin: Now, we shall settle this at last!

[Laharl steps forward]

Laharl: That we will! King Laharl runs from no one! Come on!!

[Flonne steps forward to face Laharl]

Flonne: W, Wait, Laharl! You're not actually going to fight him, are you?

[Laharl turns to face Flonne]

Laharl: Why not? He challenged me, didn't he?
Flonne: Laharl...! You're-----

[Etna turns to face Flonne]

Etna: Flonne, just let him do things his way.
Flonne: B, But...!

[Don Joaquin pulls out his sword and stick it in the ground]

Don Joaquin: My friends!! Aid me in battle!!

[Laharl steps back]

Laharl: Hm!? He's not alone?

[Flonne steps back as four zombies appear between Don Joaquin and the party]

Zombies: Ffffrrriiiieeeennndddsssss...
Laharl: ...More zombies, huh.
Don Joaquin: What do you think of this!? I've made a few friends over the 
             years!

[Don Joaquin raises his sword into the air]

Don Joaquin: Here I come, Overlord!! Now is the moment that I fulfill my duty!!
Laharl: Very well! En garde, old hero!!

[Fade to black]

[After the battle, the camera shows the same area seen before the battle took
place; the entire party is standing alongside Don Joaquin]

[Flonne steps forward to face Laharl]

Flonne: Laharl! Why!? Why didn't you lose!?
Flonne: I know that you have a kind heart inside!
Flonne: Why...?
Laharl: ...You're starting to get annoying. I'm a demon. There was never any
        kindness in my heart.
Laharl: You were wrong about me. Sorry to disappoint you.
Flonne: --------!!
Flonne: You've let me down, Laharl! You're the worst...
Don Joaquin: It's okay, little girl...

[The entire party turns to face Don Joaquin]

Flonne: Huh...?
Don Joaquin: It's all okay. I'm satisfied now...
Flonne: ...What do you mean?
Don Joaquin: It may be hard for you to understand, but we heroes live a certain
             way, and we die a certain way, too.
Don Joaquin: I was once known as the Defender of Earth, but I grew old, died,
             and have existed as a mere soul...
Don Joaquin: I could no longer live as a hero, nor could I die as one; I just
             wandered in the Netherworld...
Don Joaquin: How pathetic I felt...
Don Joaquin: But, as long last, I was able to fight again as Defender of Earth.
Don Joaquin: I wasn't able to win, but I have no regrets. In fact, I feel as if
             a great weight has been lifted from my shoulders.
Don Joaquin: It's all thanks to this kid Overlord, because he fought me with
             all his might.
Don Joaquin: Now, I can finally rest in peace.
Don Joaquin: ...Thank you.
Laharl: Hmph. What kind of hero thanks an Overlord?
Laharl: ...I was just fulfilling my own duty.

Thursday: IT IS... OKAY, JENNIFER...
Thursday: DID... THURSDAY... SERVE... HIS... PURPOSE...?

[Thursday and Gordon face each other]

Gordon: Thursday...!
Gordon: Yes! Of course! Of course you did, Thursday!!
Gordon: We were only able to overcome the many obstacles we have faced in our
        adventures because of your support!!
Gordon: We three together are the Defenders of Earth!!
Gordon: So, don't give up! Thursday!!

Gordon: Thursday...! Thursdaaaaaaaaaaaay!!

[Laharl, Etna, and Flonne turn toward Don Joaquin]

Don Joaquin: Young Defender of Earth, you have wonderful friends.

[Gordon and Jennifer turn toward Don Joaquin]

Don Joaquin: If I had friends like that, maybe things would have been 
             different.
Don Joaquin: ...This shall be my final act as Defender of Earth.

[Don Joaquin lifts his sword high into the air]

Don Joaquin: Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh...!!

Gordon: Ohh, Thursday!!

[Jennifer steps forward]

Jennifer: Ahh, thank goodness!

[Jennifer and Gordon turn to face Don Joaquin]

Jennifer: Thank you so much! How can we repay you...?

[The entire party turns to face Don Joaquin]

Don Joaquin: No, it was my fault that this happened in the first place... I
             don't need to be thanked...

[Don Joaquin sticks his sword into the ground]

Don Joaquin: Farewell, young Defenders of Earth. Remember that spirit inside
             you...

[Don Joaquin disappears, his soul flies upward, and the screen turns white]

Gordon: I salute you, Don Joaquin, the original Defender of Earth!!
Laharl: ...Maybe there are some decent humans out there, after all.

[The party turns to face Laharl]

Etna: It looks like you're getting the hang of being Overlord, aren't ya,
      Prince?

[Laharl and Thursday turn to face Etna]

Laharl: Of course. Who do you think I am? I'm the great King Laharl.
Flonne: Umm, Laharl... I'm sorry that I jumped to conclusions and said such
        horrible things...
Laharl: That's right! You said I'm "the worst...", didn't you?
Laharl: What were you gonna say next? "The worst..." what?

[Flonne steps bacl]

Flonne: Uh... W, Well...
Gordon: I'd like to hear the answer to that, too.
Jennifer: Me, too.
Etna: What kind of filthy language was about to escape those love-preaching
      lips?

[Thursday steps forward]

Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... NOW CALCULATING, NOW CALCULATING...
Thursday: CALCULATION COMPLETE. THE ANSWER IS...
Flonne: Nooooooo!!

[Flonne attacks Thursday, and Thursday staggers backwards]

Etna: Ah, she destroyed the evidence.

Jennifer: Ahh! Thursday!!
Gordon: Oh my god! Are you okay, Thursday!!

[Camera shows Laharl's throne room]

Flonne: What was that?
Etna: Felt like an earthquake, but they barely ever happen around here.
Laharl: But whenever there's one, something big always happens.
Laharl: Hmhmhm... I wonder what catastrophe will happen this time.
Prinny: P, Prince! Several giant objects have appeared at the Stellar 
        Graveyard, dood!
Laharl: That was quick.
        ...How many?
Prinny Squad: Dood, there're billions of 'em!
Gordon: You hear that, Jennifer? The EDF is here to save us!
Gordon: We can go home!
Jennifer: Wait, Gordon. We can't be so sure.
Jennifer: Even if it was the EDF, why would they send so many ships?
Gordon: Oh, come on. Why are you being so pessimistic? It's not like you.
Enta: Well, why don't we go check it out?
Flonne: I agree. Sitting here won't do any good.
Laharl: Alright then! To the Stellar Graveyard!

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows Laharl standing in front of his throne]

[Laharl speaks to everyone in the castle]

Goleck: What could these unidentified objects be? Space battlecruisers? Giant
        robots!?
Etna: Well... The way things have been going lately, they could be just about
      anything, I'd say.

Manty: It's been awhile since the last natural disaster. Let's see, there 
       was...
Manty: The time when the King was so happy that the Queen accepted his 
       proposal, he knocked over a few mountains...
Manty: The time when the King was so thrilled that the Prince was born, he
       froze the ocean...
Manty: And the time when the King was so sad because of the Queen's passing, he
       split the earth in two...
Flonne: ...Wouldn't you consider those to be artificial disasters...?

Dratti: Is it me, or are the humans overshadowing you, Prince?
Laharl: N, No, they're not! It's just you!
Dratti: ...Let's hope so.

Gargo: I've always loved sci-fi stories...

Ghoss: Since when was the Netherworld open to the public?
Laharl: Who cares? It's more fun this way.

Zommie: Those giant, unidentified objects are in the "Stellar Graveyard II".
Zommie: Since we don't know what's there, do whatever tickles your fancy.

Dimensional Gatekeeper: We have detected giant objects in the "Stellar 
                        Graveyard II".
Dimensional Gatekeeper: I feel a great power... Prince, be careful.
Laharl: There's no power greater than mine. Just relax and wait for my return.

Astronaut: *muffled breathing*
Gordon: Soldiers of the EDF!
Gordon: I told you, Jennifer! Just like I said!
Jennifer: ......
Laharl: Hmmm. I've never seen so many humans all at once.
Etna: So, what'd they come all the way here for?
Flonne: Aren't they here to rescue Mr. Gordon?
Etna: Don't you think they're acting kinda strange, though?
EDF Soldier: *muffled breathing*
Gordon: What's wrong? Your beloved hero is right here!
EDF Soldier: *muffled breathing*
Gordon: H, Hey! Guys!
Gordon: It's me! Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth!!
Laharl: Not very popular, are you?
Flonne: Poor Mr. Gordon...
Gordon: D, Don't be silly! I'm the Defender of Earth! All the kids love me!
Gordon: I had my own comic series and Saturday morning cartoon!
Etna: But, they don't seem all that impressed.
Jennifer: Gordon, we've been used...
Gordon: Used? what do you mean, Jennifer?
Jennifer: They asked us to defeat the Overlord, but their true purpose was to
          secure a route to the Netherworld...
Gordon: What are you saying, Jennifer!?
Gordon: They're risking their lives to save us! How can you accuse them of...!
Jennifer: But, Gordon... Can't you see...?
Gordon: Enough of this! I don't want to hear it!
Gordon: I'm shocked and disappointed in you! I hearby dismiss you from your
        duties as my assistant!
Jennifer: -----------!!
Jennifer: ...I see.
Gordon: I must have faith in the people of Earth! Unfaltering, unwavering
        faith!
Gordon: It's my duty as Defender of Earth! Right, guys!?
EDF Soldier: Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth... You are to be terminated...
Gordon: What!?
Etna: ...Sucks to be you.
Laharl: "All the kids love me," huh. Right...
Flonne: Poor Mr. Gordon...
EDF Soldier: ...Die...
Gordon: Hey, wait! What are you doing!?

Thursday: BEEP BEPP BLIP BEEP...
Thursday: CAPTAIN GORDON, INCOMING MESSAGE FROM GENERAL CARTER.
Static Picture: ...Fffff...fffffff...
General Carter: Ahhh, Gordon. I see that you're still alive.
Gordon: What!?
General Carter: Muhahahaha!! With your help securing a route, we were able to
                make it here unchallenged.
General Carter: Now, the Netherworld will be ours!!
General Carter: I thank you, Defenders of Earth! Muhahahaha!!
Gordon: Oh my god! We were being used!?
Flonne: Ummm... Are you just realizing that, now?
Laharl: Aren't you happy, Flonne? There's someone even dumber than you.
Gordon: Ugh...!
Gordon: Ha, hahahahaha!! I knew of their plan all along!
Etna: Liar!
General Carter: Gordon, you were a splendid pawn.
General Carter: I will tell the people of Earth that Captain Gordon died 
                valiantly while fighting the Overlord.
General Carter: That is the least I can do for you.
General Carter: Well then, Gordon, so long. Muhahahaha!!
Laharl: Hmmm... There are some promising humans out there.
Etna: I was thinking the same thing. Should we try to recruit him?
Flonne: Will you stop joking around!? This is a serious matter!
Jennifer: ......
Gordon: J, Jennifer...?
Etna: She's probably hurt because you trusted them instead of her. Oh well, 
      it's none of my business.
Laharl: Didn't you dismiss her just a minute ago, Gordon?
Flonne: Awww... Poor Miss Jennifer...!
Gordon: Ugh...!
Gordon: J, Jennifer... About that dismissal...
Jennifer: ...It's okay, Gordon.
Jennifer: I deserved to be dismissed...
Gordon: Jennifer...
Thursday: THURSDAY NOT THE ONE TO BLAME. ALL GORDON'S FAULT!

Gordon: K, Kurtis!?
Kurtis: That's right. Kurtis, Defender of Earth.

[Kurtis glows white]

[Camera turns to face Flonne as she turns around to face Etna]

Flonne: How cool! A rival has made his appearance! Look, look!
Etna: Yeah, yeah. Calm down.

[Flonne turns to face Kurtis]

Kurtis: MY goal was to defeat you, Gordon, but it seems I've overestimated you.
Gordon: Huh!? What do you mean!?
Kurtis: I assumed that you completed your mission and defeated the Overlord.
Kurtis: I came here to settle things with you.

[Kurtis jumps forward]

Kurtis: But, look at the facts. You've failed your mission, and even worse,
        you've become the Overlord's slave.
Kurtis: I'm embarrassed to call you my rival!

[Camera turns to face Laharl as he steps forward]

Laharl: He's right. That IS embarrassing.
Gordon: Ugh...!
Kurtis: You don't have the right to call yourself "Defender of Earth", nor the
        right to fight me!
Kurtis: ...So long.

[Kurtis turns around and begins to walk away]

Gordon: Kurtis, wait!

[Gordon steps forward]

Gordon: You're right. I didn't complete my mission.
Gordon: And in your eyes, it may seem that my current predicament is rather...
        pathetic.
Etna: ...What's he talking about? It IS pathetic.

[Flonne turns around to face Etna]

Flonne: Shh! It's getting good!

[Flonne turns and faces Kurtis]

Gordon: But! But, I say!!
Gordon: I have not lost my passion... I still have a hero's spirit!!
Gordon: Words cannot describe this sensation! My soul burns brighter than ever
        before!!
Gordon: And do you know why!?
Gordon: Because the true enemy has appeared before my very eyes!!

[Kurtis turns to face the party]

Kurtis: ...Fine, then. If you insist, prove me wrong.

[EDF Soldiers appear next to the party]

EDF Soldier: *muffled breathing*

Vulcanus: *grunt* Ingenious, if I do say so myself...

Flonne: ...I felt an evil presence.
Gordon: Was it General Carter? Or maybe Kurtis?
Flonne: No... It wasn't human. Something more terrifying...
Laharl: It's hard to believe that there's something more evil than me...

Flonne: You should apologize.
Gordon: Y, Yeah.
Jennifer: ......
Gordon: Ummmmm, Jennifer... Well, you see...
Jennifer: ...It's all my fault.
Gordon: What?
Jennifer: I could have stopped them, but I didn't...
Jennifer: I knew what was happening, but I kept denying it...
JenniferL If only... If only I was stronger...
Gordon: W, What do you mean, Jennifer? What are you talking about?
Jennifer: ......
Laharl: Who's there!?

[Screen fades in and out of darkness]

Kurtis: Well done, Overlord. I thought I had completely masked my presence.
Laharl: You, too. Getting this close without me noticing.
Kurtis: It's an honor to hear such praise from you. My purpose was to settle
        things with Gordon, but now you've caught my attention.
Laharl: Heheh... And what have you got in mind?
Kurtis: Hmph... You ask the obvious.
Kurtis: Mano-a-mano! We shall speak with our fists!

Laharl: What's wrong? Why are you holding back?
Kurtis: I'm ready to get serious, but I don't want to injure the VIP.

Gordon: What? Who's he talking about?

[Flonne steps forward]

Flonne: H, Has he fallen in love with me? How sweet<3

position ahead of the party]

Jennifer: Ah!!
Kurtis: Your father awaits you, Jennifer. Come with me.

[Jennifer steps away from Kurtis, and Gordon steps forward]

Gordon: Father...? I thought her parents passed away when she was a child...

[Jennifer turns around]

Jennifer: ......

[Kurtis turns to face the party]

Kurtis: What, you didn't know?
Kurtis: She is General Carter's foster child.

[Gordon steps back]

Gordon: What!?
Jennifer: ......
Jennifer: ...I'm sorry, Gordon.

[Jennifer turns to face the party]

Jennifer: What Kurtis said is true. I was adopted by General Carter and raised
          as his child.
Jennifer: He was a kind man. I always believed that he loved me...
Jennifer: But, that couldn't have been further from the truth...
Jennifer: He raised me only so he could use me...

[Kurtis turns toward Jennifer]

Kurtis: If you're going to complain about your father, tell him yourself...
Kurtis: My orders are simply to bring you back alive.
Jennifer: He wants to use me again...?
Jennifer: ......
Jennifer: ...Hahah... It doesn't matter anymore...

[Jennifer and Kurtis turn away from the party]

Gordon: Wait! Jennifer, don't go!
Gordon: You're the assistant of Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth, remember!?
Gordon: Have you forgotten our sworn duty!?

[Jennifer and Kurtis turn to face the party]

Jennifer: ......
Etna: Um, didn't you dismiss her?

[Gordon turns to face Etna]

Gordon: Shut up! Don't dig up the past! I retracted that!!

[Gordon turns to face Jennifer and steps forward]

Gordon: Jennifer! It doesn't matter if you're Carter's daughter or not!
Gordon: As the assistant to the Defender of Earth, listen to your heart!
Gordon: What is right!? What do you believe in!? And what will you do right
        now!?
Jennifer: Gordon...
Kurtis: Enough talk.
Kurtis: Gordon, Overlord...
Kurtis: I'd like to settle this once and for all. If you want Jennifer back,
        then find a way aboard the Gargantua.

[Kurtis turns his back to the party]

Kurtis: Until then... See ya.

[Kurtis flies off with Jennifer]

Gordon: Jennifer!!
Gordon: Jenniferrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...!!!!

Seraph: This is a bit worrisome. I never thought human intervention could 
        cause such disorder...
Voice: Nor did I...
Seraph: This may hinder out plans.
Voice: Yes, indeed...
Seraph: What is troubling you? Is there something else?
Voice: ...I cannot believe that this is the work of humans alone.
Voice: Someone must be pulling the strings.
Seraph: ......
Voice: ...Do you have an idea who it might be?
Seraph: I think so... But, I cannot be certain...
Voice: I see. 
       ...I will investigate the matter.
Seraph: But, if you strain yourself much more, you will...
Voice: *chuckle* That is of little concern.

[Camera shows Laharl's throne room]

Laharl: Dammit! Pesky humans!
Flonne: What do they want with the Netherworld, I wonder?
Etna: Beats me. I don't understand how humans think.
Gordon: I'm back!
Laharl: How'd it go, Gordon?
Gordon: Easy, as expected.
Gordon: Using Thursday's navigation system, I was able to lock on to the
        Gargantua's coordinates.
Laharl: Good work. Now, we can board the ship directly.
Etna: But still, I'm surprised you were able to find the coordinates. You look
      about as smart as a rock.
Gordon: Well... It seems that Jennifer had already programmed them in.
Flonne: Miss Jennifer did?
Flonne: Then, did she expect this to happen?
Gordon: ...I guess so.
Gordon: But, she must've wanted to give her father the benefit of the doubt.
Gordon: That's probably why she never told me about it.
Flonne: ......
Laharl: ...Hey, how long are you planning on sitting around?
Laharl: We can't just let the humans have their way!
Laharl: Let's go! I shall show those fools what happens when you pick a fight
        with an Overlord!
Flonne: Yeah!! We'll show them!
Gordon: That's right! I'm overwhelmed with hero's spirit! I'll save Jennifer,
        no matter what!!
Etna: *giggle* This is getting interesting<3

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows Laharl standing in front of his throne]

[Laharl speaks to everyone in the castle]

Goleck: I want a plastic model of that battleship!
Flonne: Me too!!

Manty: This is a historic event! The castle has never been attacked by humans
       before<3
Flonne: Ummmmm... Shouldn't you be a little more worried?
Manty: Ah, don't sweat it. From my experience, things always work out one way
       or another.

Dratti: An armada of 2 million ships... The Netherworld is doomed, hahaha.
Etna: Hahaha, that's so true.
Gordon: You two over there! Could you take things more seriously?

Gargo: "Modern Science:, they call it? I was completely astonished.

Ghoss: I never thought humans would try to invade the Netherworld. I'm quite
       impressed.
Laharl: I agree.
Laharl: But, they went a little too far... I'll show them what happens when 
        you pick a fight with demons.

Zommie: Boy, this story is taking some unexpected twists.
Zommie: Hey, everyone! You following this!?

Dimensional Gatekeeper: I have added the "Gargantua" to the list of available
                        destinations.
Dimensional Gatekeeper: It is exceptionally hard to connect a gate to moving
                        objects, but I was able to do so, thanks to Thursday.
Dimensional Gatekeeper: Human technology is incredible.
Gordon: But of course. Haha!
Laharl: ...You shut up.

EDF Soldier: General Carter! Demons have commenced an attack!!
General Carter: Don't fret for even a moment. Our armada is 2 million ships
                strong.
EDF Soldier: B, But, our defensive fleet is being obliterated!
General Carter: What!? What are the enemy's numbers!?
EDF Soldier: J, Just one, sir!!
EDF Soldier: The 126th Brigade has been annihilated! All soldiers have
             retreated!!
EDF Soldier: The S.S. Olympus is taking ground! Admiral Jackson and his crew
             have abandoned ship!
EDF Soldier: The 782nd Brigade is out of commission! The 15th and 981st 
             Brigades have requested emergency assistance!
General Carter: Ugh...!! This is a nightmare!!
General Carter: Our armada is being wiped out by a single demon!? Impossible!!
General Carter: I heard nothing of this kind of strength!!

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows an area on the Gargantua]

Laharl: Looks like I took care of most of them]
Laharl: Hmph... What a weak bunch.
Etna: You really pay attention to the details, giving them time to escape 
      before destroying their ships.
Flonne: *giggle* See? He's not devoid of love.
Laharl: S, Shut up! I just don't want to stink up the Netherworld with human
        corpses!
Laharl: I'm not...
Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... HIGH ENERGY READING EMMINATING FROM CANNON.
Gordon: Everybody, look out!

[A cannon on top of the Gargantua turns and fires a blast]

[Camera shows the entire party standing nearly]

Etna: What was that!?

[Flonne steps forward]

Flonne: Is that their secret weapon!?

[Gordon steps forward and faces Flonne]

Gordon: You imbecile! Now's not the time to be impressed!
Gordon: That's the Astro Cannon, the EDF's ultimate weapon.
Gordon: Demon or angel, you won't escape a shot unscathed!
Laharl: Hmph. Interesting.
Flonne: Didn't you hear what Mr. Gordon said? Let's just avoid the cannon for
        now.

[Laharl and Etna turn to face Flonne]

Etna: Whaaat!? That's no fun!
Gordon: Listen up, everyone! We have to find the entrance so we can sneak
        aboard!!

[Everyone turns to face Gordon]

Gordon: Hang in there, Jennifer! I'll save you!!
Gordon: No matter what lies ahead, Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth, will

Jennifer: ...Where am I...?
Kurtis: Are you awake?
Jennifer: Kurtis...
Kurtis: Were you having a nightmare? You were tossing and turning.
Jennifer: ......
Kurtis: ...It doesn't matter. You won't have to worry about having those dreams
        anymore.
Jennifer: K, Kurtis! That thing in your hand...!
Kurtis: You guessed it. Very good, professor.
Kurtis: You must know what it does, then.
Jennifer: Stop it, Kurtis! You call yourself human!?
Kurtis: Do I? I lost 70% of my body, and something even more dear to me in an
        incident...
Kurtis: Maybe I lost my sense of humanity in that time, too...
Kurtis: It's time to sleep. Sweet dreams...
Jennifer: Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows an area within the Gargantua]

Gordon: Hm!? That scream!!
Flonne: It's Miss Jennifer!
Etna: It's coming from that way.
Laharl: Let's go!
EDF Soldier: *muffled breathing*
Laharl: More humans... *sigh* They just don't learn, do they?
Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... THEY ARE NOT HUMAN. LIFE SIGNS 0.00000...
Gordon: Everyone, be careful!!
Gordon: These are super-human androids constructed by Kurtis!
Laharl: Super...
Etna: Human...
Flonne: Androids...?
Gordon: That's right! Kurtis is a brilliant scientist, rivaling even 
        Jennifer!!
Gordon: But he's been conducting fearful research, all in the name of 
        humanity!
Gordon: !!! 
        Could that scream be...!?
Gordon: No! He's attempting to modify Jennifer!
Laharl: He's attempting...

Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP...
Thursday: CAPTIAN GORDON, INCOMING MESSAGE FROM GENERAL CARTER.
Gordon: From Carter!?
Gordon: Okay, Thursday. Open a communication channel.
Static Image: ...Fffff...fffffff...
Gordon: Carter!!
General Carter: Muhahahaha!! You're being a sore loser, Gordon.
Gordon: Of course! I can't let a villain like you win, for the sake of Earth!
Gordon: I swear by the name "Defender of Earth", Carter! I will defeat you!!
General Carter: ...You just don't get it, do you? This invasion IS for the sake
                of Earth.
Gordon: What!?
General Carter: As you know, the earth is confronting a serious crisis.
General Carter: The room in population, the rise in crime, the shortage of 
                natural resources... The human race can't survive much longer.
General Carter: It would require an astronomical budget merely to find a new
                home for the people of Earth.
General Carter: That's why taking over the Netherworld is such a simple and
                economical solution!
Laharl: Hmmm... Your efforts are admirable. You'd make a great demon.
Laharl: But there wouldn't be a crisis in the first place if you humans weren't
        so stupid.
Laharl: As the Overlord of the Netherworld, let me say just one thing...
Laharl: Clean up your own damn mess!!
General Carter: Ugh...! You foul-mouthed little runt...!
Gordon: I have something to add to that! General Carter, I am beyond angry!
Gordon: Give back my Jennifer, Chrome-dome!!
General Carter: Why you...! If you can't play nice...
General Carter: ...then neither will I! I'll crush you for the sake of earth's
                future! Prepare yourselves!

   --- c. Main Corridor 3 ---

[Camera shows an area within the Gargantua]

Gordon: Kurtis!!
Kurtis: Glad you could make it, Gordon.
Kurtis: I knew the hordes of security guard wouldn't be enough to stop you.
Kurtis: I thought you might like to know... It's been 5 years since I lost my
        wife and daughter... And with them, my soul...
Laharl: Hey, he's giving us his life story.
Etna: Should we... attack now?
Flonne: No, we have to listen! the rival always has a tragic past.
Kurtis: ...May I continue?
Flonne: Oh, please, by all means.
Kurtis: As I was saying... It's been 5 years since I lost my wife and 
        daughter... And with them, my soul...
Kurtis: Back then, I was a top scientist, burning with a passion to save the
        earth...
Kurtis: If it wasn't for that fateful incident...
Gordon: Five years ago...?
Kurtis: As a result of the explosion in the lab, I lost my family and 70% of
        my body.
Kurtis: A group of anti-space development terrorists were to blame...
Gordon: You mean your wife and daughter were victims of that incident?
Kurtis: That's right... You caught the culprits, but what comfort would that be
        to me?
Kurtis: I swore to my wife and child! Since the Defender of Earth couldn't do
        his job, I would take his place!
Kurtis: And I became a cyborg to do just that!
Kurtis: what good is the Defender of Earth if he can't save innocent people!?
Kurtis: A true defender would do anything in his power to save as many people
        as possible!
Kurtis: I can't accept anything less!
Kurtis: I will defeat you, Gordon! And claim the title of true Defender of 
        Earth!
Kurtis: That is the only path left to me!
Gordon: So that's it... I didn't know you had such a past, Kurtis.
Gordon: It was all due to my failings.
        ...Forgive me.
Gordon: But, what you're doing now, Kurtis, is not the right way!
Kurtis: What!? I'm fighting for the sake of humanity!!
Gordon: Invading the Netherworld might save the earth...
Gordon: ...but it would require many sacrifices! Is that what you want!? Is 
        that really for the sake of Earth!?
Gordon: You should know best what it feels like to be a victim, Kurtis!
Gordon: What will your wife and daughter think, up in heaven!?
Kurtis: ----------!!
Gordon: I am the Defender of Earth!
Gordon: My duty is to right what is wrong! Even if it means that I must face a
        comrade-in-arms!
Gordon: I don't want to fight you, but this is for your own good!
Gordon: Here I come, comrade!! Behold the true spirit of a defender!!

[Fade to black]

[After the battle, camera shows the same area in which the battle took place]

Kurtis: W, Well done...
Kurtis: You've... proven me wrong...
Kurtis: I felt the true defender's spirit... the strength of your 
        determination... even in this mechanical body...
Kurtis: I lost... Now, finish me...
Laharl: Okay.
Etna: We'll kill you in one painless blow<3
Flonne: You can't!
Gordon: Kurtis, our battle has already ended.
Gordon: You tried to do what you thought was right. It's just that your sorrow
        drove you to do it in the wrong way...
Gordon: That's why I want you to fight by my side, as a comrade... How about
        it?
Kurtis: Gordon...
Laharl: I could use a skilled person like you as one of my vassals.
Kurtis: Heh... The Overlord's vassal... That doesn't sound too bad.
Kurtis: But... it seems that my body needs to recharge... I must sleep for 
        awhile...
Kurtis: Gordon... Be careful of... Jennifer...
Gordon: Kurtis!
Gordon: Be careful of Jennifer...? What does he mean by that?
Laharl: Be careful...
Etna: Of...
Flonne: Jennifer...?

[Flonne steps forward]

Flonne: Hey! You call THIS a modification!?

[Camera turns to face Carter]

General Carter: Muhahahaha!! So, you found out about it, eh?
General Carter: That's right! I have installed a neural override device!

[Camera turns to face Flonne as a question mark appears over her head]

Flonne: Neural... override?

[Camera turns to face Carter]

General Carter: Exactly! Jennifer is now my puppet!
General Carter: Jennifer! Go defeat Gordon!

[Jennifer steps forward]

Jennifer: ......

[Gordon steps forward]

Gordon: Hahahahaha!! This must be a joke!
Gordon: I, the Defender of Earth, could never lose to such a delicate creature!

[Gordon and Jennifer face each other, where Jennifer then kicks the crap out
of Gordon and sends him flying backwards]

Gordon: Owwwwwwwwwwwww...

[Jennifer steps backwards, and Etna turns to face Gordon]

Etna: Geez, you're weak...

[Laharl turns to face Gordon]

Laharl: Gordon... Maybe you're not cut out to be a hero.

[Camera turns to face Carter]

General Carter: Muhahahaha!! What do you think of that!?
General Carter: Jennifer is a master of the ancient martial art, Kung Fu!
Gordon: What!? I never knew that!!
General Carter: You never asked.
Gordon: That explains it. So, what am I supposed to do?
Gordon: No way could I use my full fighting potential against Jennifer!

[Camera turns to face Etna as she faces Gordon]

Etna: You'd lose anyways, man.

[Laharl and Etna face each other]

Laharl: How about we just blow up the entire ship?

[Flonne turns to face Laharl]

Flonne: Oh no you don't! I already claimed this ship!

[Laharl turns to face Flonne]

Laharl: I, I see... Well, so much for that idea...

[Everyone turns to face Carter]

Gordon: Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth, facing his greatest challenge 
        ever...!!
Kurtis: How pathetic, Gordon!! What happened to that spirit you were bragging
        about!?

[Kurtis appears behind the party, then flies over to Jennifer]

Gordon: Kurtis!! You're better already!?
Kurtis: Hmph... Your voice woke my heart up to the ideals I forgot long ago.

[Kurtis steps toward Jennifer]

Kurtis: Stand aside...! Let me show you MY defender spirit!

[Camera turns to face Jennifer]

General Carter: Jennifer! Kill that traitor first!

[Jennifer steps toward Kurtis and begins to glow]

Jennifer: Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!

[Jennifer glows in red and kicks Kurtis; Kurtis doesn't budge]

Kurtis: Uoohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!

[Jennifer and Kurtis attacks each other, and both fall backwards]

Kurtis: Gordon...! You called me a comrade...!
Kurtis: I... I looked up to you...
Kurtis: That's why I became a scientist in the first place... Funny, isn't it?
Kurtis: How did things end up like this? If only I had realized sooner...
Kurtis: No... It's enough that I realized it in the end. I bet they're smiling
        down on me from heaven...
General Carter: Jennifer! Stop wasting your time with that miserable traitor!

[Carter steps forward]

General Carter: Curse you all!! I'll just blow you all up and Jennifer, too!
General Carter: In case of an event like this, I planted a bomb inside the
                neural override device!
General Carter: Muhahahaha!! Now, die!

[Camera turns to face Jennifer as Kurtis steps forward]

Kurtis: I made that device! And I know its weakness!

[Jennifer steps forward and begins to glow]

Jennifer: Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!
Kurtis: Jennifer! I can't let you die here!

[Kurtis begins to glow]

Kurtis: Uoohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!

[Kurtis blows himself up, and the screen turns white]

Gordon: Kurtiiiiiiisssssssssss!!
Kurtis: Hey Gordon... Do you ever think I could be a true Defender of Earth...?
Gordon: Yeah...! Yeah! Of course you could be!!
Gordon: What am I saying... You ARE a true Defender of Earth!!
Kurtis: Heh... Thanks, Gordon...
Kurtis: I won't forget the defender spirit... you showed... me...

[Camera shifts back to the original scene, with Kurtis lying on the ground,
Gordon standing over him, and Jennifer back to normal]

Gordon: I should be the one thanking you...
Gordon: ...Kurtis. You will be known as the 38th Defender of Earth.
Laharl: ...Heed my words, Death. I command you in the name of King Laharl.
Laharl: Lead the soul of Kurtis, Defender of Earth, to his family's side...

Etna: Prince...

[Flonne turns to face Laharl]

Flonne: Laharl...

[Laharl turns to face Flonne]

Laharl: ...Don't say a word. As the Overlord of the Netherworld, I was just
        paying homage to a true hero.
Laharl: That's all...
Flonne: Yes...
        I understand.

[Everyone turns to face Carter]

Gordon: Carter! I'll never forgive you!!

[Carter steps back]

General Carter: *gasp*

[Jennifer steps toward Gordon]

Jennifer: Wait, Gordon!
Gordon: Jennifer! You're back to normal!?
Jennifer: Yes... I was conscious the entire time I was being controlled...
Jennifer: Because of me, Kurtis...
Gordon: He did what he thought was right. I'm sure he has no regrets...
Gordon: And now, his spirit will burn brightly in your heart.
Jennifer: Yeah... You're right.
Gordon: Jennifer, you are no longer my assistant.
Gordon: Fight alongside me as an equal...
        ...as a Defender of Earth!!

[Jennifer steps forward, and her and Gordon face each other]

Jennifer: ...Thank you, Gordon.
Jennifer: I understand. Let's forget about the past and concentrate on the 
          present.

[Carter steps forward]

General Carter: W, Wait, Jennifer! I'm your father! Have you forgotten 
                everything I've done for you!?
Jennifer: No, I haven't... If you hadn't taken me in back then, I might not be
          here today...
Jennifer: I loved you, and believed in you...

[Jennifer steps forward]

Jennifer: But, we were never a true family to begin with...
Jennifer: You raised me only so you could manipulate me!
Jennifer: I'll never call you "father" again! Prepare yourself, Carter!
General Carter: Tch...! You ungrateful little...!
General Carter: That's it! Die!!

[Three angels appear in the room]

Angel: ......
Flonne: A Celestial Host!? Why...!? Why are angels helping HIM...!?
Laharl: Apparently, someone's been pulling strings from behind the scenes.

[Etna turns to face Laharl]

Etna: Celestia's involved, huh? It just keeps getting better, Prince.
Flonne: It can't be... Is this the will of the Seraph...?

General Carter: Damn him...! Was he trying to drive humanity into extinction
                from the beginning...?
Mid-Boss: Who is "he"?
General Carter: W, Who are you!?
Mid-Boss: No matter how advanced your technology is, it is impossible to
          infiltrate the Netherworld without help.
Mid-Boss: Now answer. Who is behind this?
General Carter: I, I can't...
Mid-Boss: ...If you do not say, I will kill you.
General Carter: *gulp* It, It's a man with white wings!
General Carter: I'm innocent! I, I just wanted to save the earth!
Mid-Boss: ...I see.
Mid-Boss: Foolish human. You cannot save the earth.
Mid-Boss: How do you intend to save all of mankind when you cannot even save
          your daughter?
Mid-Boss: You have sacrificed the lives of others to satisfy your own ego.
Mid-Boss: Until you realize that... you will be plagued by nightmares.
Mid-Boss: We will be watching you.
Mid-Boss: (Oh... Why am I so awesome?)

Jennifer: I will, too, Kurtis... You saved my life. I shall repay you by

[Words appear on screen as Flonne narrates]

After learning that Celestia was behind the incident with the Earth Defense
Force, I made up my mind to go back to Celestia to ask the Seraph about it
directly.

The Netherworld. Celestia. The human world.

I never imagined that this war, which involved the entire universe, would
come to such an unexpected end...

        Celestia...
Laharl: Do you realize that you may have to face him as an enemy?
Flonne: Face Master Lamington as my enemy...?
Etna: He's the head of Celestia, right?
Etna: We know that someone in Celestia has been helping the EDF. He must have
      known about it.
Jennifer: I agree. I think it's very possible that he's even the mastermind.
Laharl: Wasn't he the one who ordered you to go to the Netherworld in the first
        place? ...To assassinate my old man?
Gordon: What!? An angel ordering an assassination? That's just wrong! He's 
        guilty, without a doubt!!
Flonne: No, he's not!
Laharl: Can you say that for sure?
Flonne: ...I believe in Master Lamington.
Laharl: ......
Laharl: ...I see.
Laharl: Alright, then. Let's get going.
Flonne: ...?
Laharl: It's a good opportunity for me to check out this so-called Seraph; I'm
        going with ya.
Flonne: Laharl...
Etna: Geez Prince, why don't you just admit it?
Etna: "I'm worried about Flonne, so I'm gonna go with her!"
Etna: What's so hard about that, huh?
Laharl: F, Fool! That's far from the truth...!
Jennifer: Now, now. We all feel the same way, Harlie.
Gordon: Jennifer's right. As the Defender of Earth, I cannot let my comrade go
        alone.
Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... WE ARE COMRADES. WE GO TOGETHER. END OF
          DISCUSSION.
Laharl: ...Hmph. Bunch of fools.
Flonne: Everybody...
Flonne: ...Thank you.

[Camera shows Laharl standing in front of his throne]

[Laharl speaks to everyone in the castle]

Goleck: The Prinnies were talking about "multiple endings"...
Laharl: ...Huh? Endings to what?

Manty: You're going to Celestia, I hear. Bring back some gifts for us!
Laharl: Idiot. It's not a vacation.

Dratti: You've changed a lot, doing things for the sake of others.
Laharl: Sh, Shut up! I only do things for my own sake!

Gargo: So if humans can come here, that means we can go there, right?
Laharl: Hmmm... Now that you mention it...

Ghoss: At last, the final battle. I'll give you a worthy present.

[Ghoss gives Laharl the Diabolic Sword]

Ghoss: Have a nice trip.

Zommie: What will happen in the end, Prince? I can't wait to find out<3

Dimensional Gatekeeper: A gate that connects Celestia and the Netherworld...
Dimensional Gatekeeper: Prince... Please be careful...

=== i. Celestia ===

   --- a. Field of Virtue ---

[Camera shows the gate leading into Celestia]

Laharl: So, this is the entrance to Celestia...
Flonne: It is said that one of the former Seraphs had this gate constructed to
        cut off the Netherworld from Celestia.
Flonne: That's why it can only be opened by the residents of Celestia.
Etna: Hmph! That's not fair.
Flonne: Okay, I'm going to open the gate. Is everybody ready?

[Screen turns white]

[Camera shows an area within Celestia]

Mid-Boss: ...Bonjour, everyone. It is a pleasure to see you here.
Flonne: Oh, it's you, Mr. Mid-Boss.
Laharl: Weren't you saying earlier that only Celestians can open this gate?
Flonne: Oh... Um... That's strange.
Mid-Boss: *chuckle* It has been thousands of years since a demon other than
          moi has passed through this gate.
Gordon: Aha! It's all clear to me now! You're an evil henchman who's been hired
        by the Seraph!
Mid-Boss: Bzzzt! Wrong.
Jennifer: I know! You're an angel in disguise!
Mid-Boss: Bzzzt! Another wrong answer.
Mid-Boss: You all have very active imaginations. But I, the Dark Adonis, just
          happened to be passing by... Nothing more.
Laharl: Hmph... So, Dark Adonis, why is it that you're in Celestia?
Mid-Boss: I am here to test your resolve.
Laharl: What...?
Mid-Boss: From this point on, you will face challenges unlike anything you have
          experienced before.
Mid-Boss: Whether or not you can emerge victorious... I would like to see with
          my own eyes.
Laharl: But what does that have to do with you? Why do you care!? Answer me!
Mid-Boss: Hmhmhm... We have talked long enough.
Mid-Boss: Show me what you are capable of!

[Fade to black]

[After the battle, camera shows the same area seen before the battle took 
place]

Mid-Boss: *chuckle* Your teamwork is impressive. I commend you for having come
          so far.
Laharl: Huh? where's the usual pathetic excuse of yours?
Mid-Boss: Demons, angels, humans... Rather than learn about each other, they
          use words such as "good" and "evil" to differentiate themselves.
Mid-Boss: ...That is the sad truth.
Flonne: (Wait... That reminds me of something Master Lamington once said to 
        me...)
Mid-Boss: However, through our battle, you have proved to me...
Mid-Boss: ...that regardless of our differences, all creatures can become one
          in spirit.
Mid-Boss: As long as you bear that in mind, I am sure you can overcome any
          ordeal.
Etna: Uh, Prince... Something's definitely wrong. Mid-Boss is acting all
      serious!
Laharl: Y, Yeah! This must be a trap of some sort!
Laharl: Who are you, really!?
Mid-Boss: Hmhmhm... As I said, I am the Dark Adonis.
Mid-Boss: Farewell! Haaahahahaha!!
Laharl: So... What was that all about?
Etna: Beats me...
Flonne: I think Mr. Mid-Boss is trying to encourage us in his own way.
Gordon: He is a true rival, indeed.
Jennifer: Oh, the beauty of friendship between rivals...!
Laharl: ...Were we all listening to the same conversation?

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows an area within a Celestian palace]

Vulcanus: Master Lamington! Master Lamington, we have an emergency!
Seraph: What is the matter?
Vulcanus: That traitor Flonne has begun her invasion of Celestia, leading a
          battalion of demons!!
Seraph: ...The day has finally come.
Vulcanus: We are prepared to intercept the demons! I will lead the troops
          myself. With your permission, of course...
Seraph: ...Very well. I shall leave the matter to you.
Seraph: But, I want them captured unharmed. Do you understand?
Vulcanus: Yes, sir!
Vulcanus: (...Captured?)
Vulcanus: (Nonsense! I will kill them amidst the confusion!)
Vulcanus: (It is only a matter of time before I become a god!)
Vulcanus: (And that is when I, Vulcanus, shall establish absolute peace in the
          universe!)

   --- b. Paradise ---

[Camera shows the party walking onto a map within Celestia]

Flonne: The Celestial hosts...!

[A Celestial Host steps forward]

Celestial Host: Target confirmed. Proceeding as ordered.

[Camera turns to face Laharl]

Laharl: Hmph... Are these your fellow Celestians?

[Flonne turns to face Laharl]

Flonne: Yes, but they are full-fledged angels.

[Etna steps forward]

Etna: I don't think they're here to give you a warm welcome back, though.

[Celestial Host steps forward]

Celestial Host: Angel Trainee Flonne. By order of Archangel Vulcanus, you are
                to be executed for treason.

[Flonne steps forward]

Flonne: Wait, please! I haven't committed treason! It's all a misunderstanding!
        Master Vulcanus is mistaken!
Celestial Host: Your objections are meaningless. You are a traitor and must be
                executed.

[Flonne steps forward]

Flonne: Please let me see the Seraph! I know he will straighten everything out!
Celestial Host: Request denied. We were given no such orders.
Celestial Host: Our orders are to execute Angel Trainee Flonne and all that
                assist her.

[Flonne steps back]

Flonne: I beg you! Listen to me...!

[Laharl steps forward to face Flonne]

Laharl: Flonne, don't waste your breath.

[Everyone turns to face Flonne]

Etna: Yeah. These morons haven't listened to a word you've said.

[Flonne turns to face Etna]

Flonne: But, I... I can't fight...
Laharl: What happened to all that determination of yours?
Laharl: If you're just gonna give up, then why did you bother to come?

[Jennifer steps forward]

Jennifer: Harlie... You're being too harsh on her...

[Gordon steps forward]

Gordon: Jennifer's right! As a defender, I cannot tolerate such treatment of a
        lady...

[Laharl turns to face the angels, while Flonne turns to face Jennifer and 
Gordon]

Flonne: ...It's okay. Laharl is right.
Flonne: I thought I had made up my mind...
Flonne: But once I faced the reality of the situation, I...
Flonne: ...No, I can't be like this!
Flonne: I'm sorry. I'm alright now!

[Flonne turns to face Laharl]

Flonne: Thank you, Laharl.

[Laharl turns to face Flonne]

Laharl: Just don't waste my time with any more talk of giving up, or else I'm
        outta here.
Flonne: I understand.

[Laharl turns to face the angels]

Laharl: Hmph... Then, let's hurry up and kick some angel butt!
Flonne: Okay!

[Everyone turns to face the angels as the camera turns to face them.

Celestial Host: You have demonstrated resistance. The use of deadly force is
                authorized against all opposition.

[Laharl steps forward]

Laharl: Be my guest. Show me what you've got!

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows an area within a Celestian palace]

Voice: The battle has begun...
Seraph: Our task is nearly complete.
Voice: Yes... We have made them come all this way, without the slightest
       explanation...
Seraph: We will surely be punished for our actions.
Voice: *chuckle* I have already received my punishment.
Voice: But, it is for that reason that the future is now in their hands. I
       should be thankful.
Seraph: ...Will they prevail?
Voice: I don't know... It is all up to them.

   --- c. Angelic Choir ---

[Camera shows the party walking onto an area within Celestia]

[Vulcanus appears in front of the party]

Vulcanus: *grunt* It's been a while, Flonne.

[Camera turns to face Flonne as she steps forward]

Flonne: Master Vulcanus...!

[Etna turns to face Flonne]

Etna: WHAT!? Don't tell me HE'S an angel!
Jennifer: You're got to be kidding! No matter how you look at it, that's the
          face of a villain!
Laharl: True. You look so evil, it's a pity that you're an angel.

[Camera turns to face Vulcanus]

Vulcanus: Silence! How dare you look at my glorious face and call me a villain!
Vulcanus: Angel Trainee Flonne! To conspire with demons to wage war on Celestia
          is an unspeakable sin!
Vulcanus: Not only that, but you've harmed innocent angels! You deserve nothing
          short of death!
Vulcanus: I, the Archangel Vulcanus, shall carry out your sentence!

[Camera turns to face Flonne as she steps forward]

Flonne: Please, Master Vulcanus! I'm only here with a question for the Seraph!
Vulcanus: Quiet, traitor! It disgusts me to even speak to you!!

[Flonne steps forward]

Flonne: Master Vulcanus! Why? Why am I a traitor!?

[Camera turns to face Vulcanus]

Vulcanus: Stop pretending to be innocent! We all know that you are conspiring
          with demons so that you can take over Celestia!
Vulcanus: And on top of that, you tricked that stupid Defender of Earth into
          fighting for your cause! How despicable!
Vulcanus: It is our responsibility as angel to destroy demons, the root of all
          evil, and watch over the helpless human race!
Vulcanus: To renounce your sublime duty and join forces with these foul demons
          is simply unforgivable!

[Camera turns to face Laharl as he steps forward]

Laharl: Hey! Who the hell do you think you are!?

[Etna, Laharl, and Flonne all turn to face each other]

Flonne: Wait... Please, let me handle this.

[Everyone turns to face Vulcanus]

Flonne: Master Vulcanus, I pity you.

[Vulcanus steps back]

Vulcanus: W, What?
Flonne: You believe that demons are evil, that humans are helpless... and that
        you alone are right.
Flonne: But, I know that demons can show kindness... and humans can be 
        brave...!
Flonne: Without seeking proof, you have allowed your judgment to be colored by
        prejudice.
Flonne: Isn't the evil which you speak of in your own heart, Master Vulcanus!?

[Vulcanus steps back]

Vulcanus: W, W, W, WHAT!?

[Laharl and Flonne face each other]

Laharl: Well said, Flonne.
Jennifer: Yeah! You hit it right on the nose!
Etna: Right on!
Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... I AM DEEPLY MOVED.

[Gordon steps forward and faces Flonne]

Gordon: I see that the defender spirit has awakened within you, too! From this
        day forward, you shall be known as a Defender of Earth!

[Camera turns to face Vulcanus]

Vulcanus: Y, You...! Evil in my heart...?
Vulcanus: Never! I am only doing what is right!
Vulcanus: And I will prove that to you, here and now! With your death!

[Angels appear in front of the party]

Vulcanus: Go, soldiers! Kill them all!!

[Vulcanus disappears]

   --- d. Coliseum ---

[Camera shows an area within Celestia]

Laharl: Something's not right...
Flonne: Huh? What do you mean?
Laharl: We've made it this far, but still haven't seen any sign of the 
        Seraph...
Gordon: That's true.
Etna: If the Seraph is not involved in any of this, then why hasn't he come out
      and saved Flonne?
Jennifer: So, you're saying that fact that he hasn't shown up can only mean...
Flonne: ......
Flonne: ...I understand your point.
Flonne: But, I'll believe in Master Lamington until the very end...!
Laharl: ...Geez, you're stubborn.
Laharl: Don't tell me it's because of love again...
Flonne: Yes it is, absolutely! To have faith in someone you respect... That's
        love!
Laharl: *sigh* What a Love Freak.
Etna: Well, I don't trust the Seraph myself, but I guess I can tag along.
Flonne: Etna...
Jennifer: I'll help you, Flonne. I believe in you.
Gordon: Me, too! I trust in your love.
Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... I WILL ACCOMPANY YOU, TOO.
Flonne: Miss Jennifer... Mr. Gordon... Mr. Thursday...
Laharl: This is ridiculous. You guys are so naive.
Etna: Hm? Does that mean you're leaving, Prince?
Laharl: F, Fool! How can I turn back now when I haven't seen the Seraph!?
Laharl: I'll go on, even if it's by myself!
Flonne: Laharl...
Flonne: (Everybody, thank you so much...)
Flonne: (I'm glad that I met all of you.)
Flonne: (I have harmed my own kind...)
Flonne: (No matter how this journey ends, I will receive severe punishment...)
Flonne: (But, I have no regrets... I was able to meet such wonderful
        companions.)

   --- e. Divine Prison ---

[Camera shows the party confronting Vulcanus within an area in Celestia]

Vulcanus: *grunt* I'm surprised that you made it this far. Not bad... Not bad
          at all.

[Camera turns to face Gordon]

Gordon: Everybody, be careful! Whenever a villain appears and talks like this,
        there's always a trap!

[Camera turns to face Vulcanus]

Vulcanus: Who are you calling a villain!? Hmph, this will keep your filthy
          mouth shut!

[The ground begins to glow under Vulcanus as he begins to cast a spell;
exclamation marks appear over everyone's heads]

Vulcanus: Evil born from the darkness of chaos! Abide by the pact, and
          annihilate my foes!
Laharl: Demon summoning...!?
Flonne: How can this be? Making a pact with demons is strictly forbidden by our
        law!

[Darkness engulfs Vulcanus, and demons soon appear all around him]

Demons: Guooooaaaaah!!

[Camera turns to face Gordon]

Gordon: Watch out! These aren't ordinary demons!

[Jennifer turns to face Thursday]

Jennifer: Scan them, Thursday!
Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... IMMEASURABLE POWER AND ENDURANCE. DANGER
          DANGER DANGER...!!

[Camera turns to face Vulcanus]

Vulcanus: Hmhmhm...!!
Vulcanus: I have enlisted these greater demons for an occasion such as this!
Vulcanus: They were eager to sign the contract when I told them that they could
          have the Netherworld in exchange for your deaths.

[Camera turns to face Etna as she turns towards Laharl]

Etna: See, Prince? How many times have I told you to be a better role model for
      your subjects?

[Camera turns to face Laharl as his eyes turn red]

Laharl: Shut up! Now's not the time!!

[Camera turns to face Vulcanus]

Vulcanus: *grunt* Enjoy fighting your own kind! Muhahahaha!

[Vulcanus disappears]

[Camera turns to face Laharl]

Laharl: Dammit! Even I can't take care of this many greater demons...!
Gordon: What's the plan? Should we retreat?
Etna: You think they'll let us retreat?

[Jennifer steps forward]

Jennifer: But, what else can we do!?
Voice: Come on!
Voice: I don't recall having friends that lose their cool in front of their
       adversaries!
Laharl: Who is this!?

[The party looks around]

Flonne: Look! Over there!

[Camera shows a green Prinny at the back of the map]

Prinny?: Hmph...
Laharl: You're...!!
Laharl: ...Hey, who the heck is that?

[Etna turns to face Laharl]

Etna: I dunno.

[Flonne turns to face Laharl]

Flonne: I don't think I've seen that Prinny before.

[Green Prinny steps forward]

Prinny?: Hey! Don't you recognize me!?
Prinny?: These eyes full of hope and resolution!!
Prinny?: The spirit that burns within me!!

[Fire engulfs the Prinny as the camera spins around]

Prinny?: And this bold and valiant stature!!

[Prinny raises a skull into the air as it glows in white]

Prinny?: Who else could it be? It is I, Kurtis!

[Camera turns to face Gordon]

Gordon: K, Kurtis?
Gordon: ...You mean, THAT Kurtis?

[Camera turns to face Kurtis]

Kurtis: That's right! Kurtis, Defender of Earth!
Jennifer: But, I thought you were with your family in heaven!

[Kurtis steps forward]

Kurtis: Heh... That's what I had hoped for, but I committed too many sins in my
        lifetime.
Kurtis: I was given a different form to make up for what I did...
Kurtis: I have returned to atone for my sins! And to help my precious friends!

[Kurtis jumps between the party and the demons, and faces the party]

Gordon: Kurtis...
Jennifer: *chuckle*
Etna: Hmhmhm...!
Laharl: Haaahahahaha!!
Kurtis: Don't laugh!! It's not like I had a choice!!
Gordon: I, I'm sorry. It, It's just that you're so darn cute...
Kurtis: I rushed here, thinking you guys needed me, and this is what I get?
        ...Maybe I shouldn't have bothered to come.
Gordon: No, Kurtis. I am grateful that you're here. Your words have rekindled
        the flame in each of our hearts!
Gordon: Right, everyone?

[Etna turns to face Kurtis]

Etna: Well, he went through all of that just for us. We can't give up now, can
      we?
Laharl: Of course not. As King of the Netherworld, I will show these demons
        who's in charge!

[Kurtis joins the party]

Flonne: The power of our friendship is increasing! I think we can do it!

[Laharl turns to face Flonne, then sulks]

Laharl: Uh... Am I supposed to find that reassuring?

[Flonne's eyes light up]

Flonne: There is nothing to worry about! Friendship power beats anything!
Laharl: Geez...

[Laharl turns to face the demons]

Laharl: Anyways, let's do it!

[The entire party turns to face the demons]

Party: Alright!!

[Fade to black]

[After the battle, camera shows the same area shown before the battle took
place]

Gordon: Hahahahaha! That wasn't so bad, was it?
Kurtis: Yeah, sure. You were about to run away when I got here.
Gordon: I, I only suggested a temporary, strategic retreat! That's totally
        different from running away!
Flonne: Now, now. Let's just say that the power of our friendship brought us
        victory.
Laharl: This conversation's going nowhere. Let's move on.
Jennifer: Right. We still have that villain to defeat!
Etna: What's up ahead, Flonne?
Flonne: Let's see... We are about to enter the Seraphic Sanctuary.
Flonne: Besides Master Lamington, only sentries and high-ranking angels are
        allowed inside.
Laharl: Hm... Sounds interesting.
Flonne: Please, stay alert. There's no telling what Master Vulcanus might do at
        this point.
Laharl: There's no need to be concerned. Who do you think I am?
Laharl: I am Laharl, the Overlord!

=== ii. Seraphic Sanctuary ===

   --- a. Inner Sanctum ---

[Camera shows an area within the Seraphic Sanctuary]

Etna: Hmph. So, this is where the Seraph lives. I don't see much of value...
      Too bad.
Laharl: What was your reason for coming...?
Flonne: Shhh! Quiet!

[Fade to black]

[Camera shows the party walking into the Seraphic Sanctuary]

[Three Celestial Hosts appear in front of the party]

Celestial Host: This is the Seraphic Sanctuary... Those without permission to
                be here must leave the premises immediately...

[Kurtis steps forward]

Kurtis: Who are they!?

[Camera turns to face Flonne as she faces the party]

Flonne: These are the angelic sentries... They will guard the Seraph at any
        cost.
Flonne: They are protected by a special force field, which is impervious to all
        forms of attack.

[Jennifer steps forward]

Jennifer: That can't be...! It must have a weakness!

[Jennifer turns toward Thursday]

Jennifer: Analyze the force field, Thursday!

[Thursday steps forward]

Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... ANALYZING FORCE FIELD... 20%... 55%... 90%...
Thursday: ANALYSIS COMPLTED. IT HAS NO WEAKNESS. INVINCIBLE INVINCIBLE
          INVINCIBLE...

[Gordon steps forward]

Gordon: What!? That's not fair!!
Laharl: Hmph... It doesn't matter if there's a weakness or not. All we gotta do
        is blast them away with our power.

[Laharl turns toward Etna]

Laharl: Etna! We'll show these angels what we think of their force fields!!

[Etna steps forward and faces Laharl]

Etna: Okay, Prince!

[Etna and Laharl unleash a barrage of attacks upon the angels]

[The force fields nullify everything]

Laharl: That had no effect!? Impossible!

[Everyone turns toward Gordon]

Gordon: Hahahahaha! Seems like it's a little too much for you two! Now, it's
        our turn!!

[Everyone stands aside as Gordon steps forward]

Gordon: Jennifer! Thursday! Let's show them how it's done!

[Jennifer steps forward]

Jennifer: Okay, Gordon!

[Thursday steps forward]

Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... ROGER, CAPTAIN.

Jennifer, Gordon, and Thursday: Ultimate defender formation: Space Triangle!!

[Space Defenders release a barrage of attacks upon the angels]

[The force fields nullify everything]

Gordon: Our formation attack isn't powerful enough, either...!?
Jennifer: Are they truly invincible1?

[Camera turns to face Kurtis as he steps forward]

Kurtis: It's not time to give up yet! Don't forget that you have ME on your
        side!

[Everyone turns to face Kurtis]

Kurtis: Let's combine our defender spirits together!

[The defenders all turn to face the angels]

Kurtis, Jennifer, Gordon, and Thursday: True ultimate defender formation:
                                        Plasma Quartet!!

[The defenders unleash a barrage of attacks upon the angels]

[The force fields nullify everything]

[The defenders all step back]

Kurtis: You've gotta be kidding me...! It didn't even make a scratch!

[Camera turns to face Flonne as she steps forward]

Flonne: No! Attacking separately won't do any good!
Flonne: We must ALL unite our hearts!!

[Laharl turns to face Flonne]

Laharl: Unite our hearts...?

[Flonne and Etna move to the middle of the party and face the angels]

Flonne: That's right! Whether we're angels, demons, or humans, we all share
        the same feelings!!
Flonne: and if we focus those feelings together, we can accomplish anything!!
Laharl: ...How can you say something like that with a straight face?
Flonne: Laharl!
Laharl: Alright, alright. So the point is, we all attack at the same time, 
        right?

[Laharl steps back and joins the party]

Laharl: Then, let's do it. On the count of three...
Laharl: One, two, three!

[Laharl begins to glow]

Laharl: Haaaaaaaaahhhh!!

[Etna begins to glow]

Etna: Yaaaaaaaaahhhh!!

[Gordon begins to glow]

Gordon: Nuoooooaaahhhh!!

[Jennifer begins to glow]

Jennifer: Aaaaaaaaaahhhh!!

[Thursday begins to glow]

Thursday: BEEPBEEPBEEPBEEPBEEP!!

[Kurtis begins to glow]

Kurtis: Woaaaaaaaahhhh!!

[Flonne begins to glow]

Flonne: Now! Let our love and friendship unite!!
Party: GALAXY OMEGA STAR!!!!!

[Party unleashes a barrage of attacks upon the angels]

[The force fields shattered]

Gordon: Yes! We've destroyed the force field!
Jennifer: We did it!

[Camera turns to face Laharl]

Laharl: ...Hey, Flonne. Did I hear something about love and friendship just
        now?

[Flonne turns to face Laharl]

Flonne: Yes, you did. So, what about it?
Laharl: Whaddya mean, "what about it"? I keep telling you that I don't feel
        stuff like that!
Flonne: *giggle* Think whatever you want, Laharl.
Laharl: What did you say!?

[Etna turns to face Laharl]

Etna: Uh, Prince... Now that their force fields are down, isn't this our 
      chance?
Laharl: Yeah... but...
Laharl: ...We'll continue this discussion later! Don't forget!
Flonne: Okay, okay.

[Party turns to face the angels]

Flonne: (*sigh* He hasn't gotten any less stubborn, that's for sure... Oh 
        well...)

   --- b. Hall of Justice ---

[Camera shows an area within the Seraphic Sanctuary]

Flonne: Master Vulcanus...
Vulcanus: Because you were just a trainee, I underestimated you.
Vulcanus: But now that you've defeated greater demons, as well as angelic
          sentries... I must recognize your strength.
Laharl: What's going on? He got so serious all of a sudden. Did he hit his head
        or something?
Etna: Beats me. These angels... You never know what they're thinkin'.
Flonne: Um... Were you referring to me, too?
Etna: Of course I was<3
Vulcanus: SILENCE! Where are your manners!?
Vulcanus: Don't you wish to know my true purpose!?
Kurtis: Your purpose...? Hmph! I bet it's just some selfish fantasy!
Gordon: No, if he thought it was necessary to involve the earth and humankind,
        then it must be something really important!
Vulcanus: You are correct! My goal is noble, indeed!
Vulcanus: To become the absolute ruler of the entire universe!
Laharl: Absolute ruler?
Etna: Gee, I'm disappointed. Like Kurtis said, you're just fulfilling a selfish
      fantasy.
Vulcanus: No! It is not for my own benefit!
Vulcanus: Peace can only be established in the universe under the watchful eye
          of an omnipotent ruler!!
Flonne: Master Vulcanus... That is your goal...?
Flonne: But, peace is not something that can be achieved by the will of one
        individual...
Flonne: It is only possible when everybody joins hands and works together.
Vulcanus: You are too naive, Flonne! Such a pacifistic approach is doomed to
          fail because of these deceitful demons and foolish humans!
Flonne: That's not true! Demons and humans are capable of...
Vulcanus: Silence! What do you know about them!?
Vulcanus: ...I am all too aware! Their cruelty... Their vileness in their
          hearts...!!
Flonne: Master Vulcanus...
Etna: He's not gonna listen to you, Flonne.
Laharl: Well, maybe he'll be more submissive with a little physical persuasion.
Etna: Uh... Prince, I hope you didn't mean it THAT way...
Vulcanus: The time has come! I will eliminate you, and deal with the Seraph
          next! And then, I will be a god!
Vulcanus: From this day forth, I shall be known as Vulcanus, the Peacebringer!!

[Fade to black]

[After the battle, camera shows the same area seen before the battle took
place]

Vulcanus: H, How can this be...!?
Vulcanus: My goal! My duty! My dream! They've all been shattered by these
          heathens!!
Flonne: Have you still not realized it, Master Vulcanus?
Flonne: You wanted to being peace to the universe, regardless of the means...
Flonne: Even if you had succeeded, could you call it true peace?
Flonne: Please consider us as an example, Master Vulcanus.
Flonne: We have worked together to come this far, with our hearts united as
        one.
Flonne: Can this not be considered the first step towards peace?
Vulcanus: ...Ha! Enough of your idealistic rambling!
Vulcanus: You thought your misguided words could convince me to repent!?
Vulcanus: My beliefs cannot be shaken so easily!
Vulcanus: The game's not over yet! I'll just convince the Seraph to finish the
          job for me! You and he can kill each other!!
Vulcanus: Muhahahaha!!
Gordon: Drat, we let him escape! Any normal villain would have been moved to
        tears by those words and begged for forgiveness.
Laharl: His conviction is strong. He won't change his mind so easily.
Kurtis: He intends to start a fight between us and the Seraph.
Jennifer: He'll probably make us look like the bad guys and tell the Seraph
          some horrible lie.
Etna: How does he come up with all these dirty tricks? It's really too bad that
      he's an angel.
Laharl: Well, it looks like a battle with the Seraph is inevitable.
Laharl: Are you ready for it, Flonne?
Flonne: ......
Flonne: ...Yes!
Flonne: I don't know exactly what will happen, but I must tell Master Lamington
        everything that's on my mind.
Flonne: I know he'll understand!
Laharl: ...I see.
Laharl: Then, tell him straight to his face!
Flonne: I will!

   --- c. Sacred Altar ---

[Camera shows a dark area]

Flonne: This is the Seraph's personal chamber. We call it the Sacred Altar.
Flonne: Is everybody ready?
Laharl: Ready.
Etna: Anytime.
Gordon: I'm all set.
Jennifer: I can feel my heart pounding.
Thursday: BEEP BEEP BLIP BEEP... SYSTEM FUNCTIONING AT 100%. THURSDAY IS GOOD
          TO GO.
Kurtis: Come on, let's do it.
Flonne: Okay. Here we go...!

[Fade to black]

[Screen goes white]

[Camera shows the party walking into the Sacred Altar]

Flonne: Master Lamington!
Seraph: Flonne...

[Vulcanus turns to face the Seraph]

Vulcanus: M, Master Lamington!
Vulcanus: She is a traitor who has come to take over Celestia with her 
          abominable troops of demons!

[Laharl steps forward]

Laharl: Stop lying. You're the one who's planning to take over the entire
        universe.

[Vulcanus turns toward the party]

Vulcanus: S, Silence, demon!!
Seraph: Hmm... So, you are a demon?
Laharl: Not just an ordinary demon. I am Laharl, King of the Netherworld!
Seraph: You are the son of Krichevskoy... I see.
Seraph: Flonne.

[Flonne steps forward]

Flonne: Yes, Master Lamington.
Seraph: Is it true that you are here with these demons to take over Celestia?
Flonne: No, I have come to ask you a question.
Seraph: A question, you say?
Flonne: Yes. A few days ago, the Earth Defense Force led an invasion of the
        Netherworld.
Flonne: It was fortunate that it failed, but I discovered that angels were
        involved in the invasion.
Seraph: ......

[Flonne steps forward]

Flonne: Please answer me! Were you behind this, Master Lamington!?

[Vulcanus turns to face the Seraph]

Vulcanus: M, Master Lamington! Do not be fooled by her words!
Vulcanus: All that she has said is a lie!
Vulcanus: Angels using humans to invade the Netherworld!? That is simply
          absurd!!
Flonne: It's not a lie! I saw it with my own eyes! Without a doubt, they were
        angels!

[Vulcanus turns to face the party]

Vulcanus: You are mistaken! The demons have tricked you!!
Flonne: While it is true that demons are aggressive by nature, they do not hurt
        others without reason!
Flonne: My friends, here, have convinced me of that!
Seraph: *chuckle* This is quite unusual, Flonne.
Seraph: You, a Celestian, refer to demons as friends, and defend their 
        behavior?
Flonne: Master Lamington. At your request, I went to the Netherworld, and there
        I met Laharl and my other friends.
Flonne: Demons may not be perceived as good.
Flonne: As a matter of fact, they are rather selfish, rude, and cynical.
Laharl: Hey!
Flonne: But...!
Flonne: But, I have also discovered that they have love and kindness in their
        hearts.
Flonne: Master Lamington, I remember you telling me...
Flonne: ...that there is no such thing as absolute evil, that even demons have
        love.
Flonne: As I spent time in the Netherworld, I came to realize that you were 
        right.
Flonne: It also occurred to me that perhaps we Celestians have judged demons
        too harshly.
Etna: Yep. Especially this Vulcanus guy.
Vulcanus: H, How dare you!
Seraph: ...Flonne, I see that you have learned many things in the Netherworld.
Flonne: Master Lamington...
Seraph: You are not mistaken.

[Vulcanus turns to face the Seraph]

Vulcanus: Wh, What!?
Seraph: It is true that Celestians have been blinded by prejudice.
Seraph: Refusing to try and understand our cultural differences, they instead
        chose to label demons as "evil"...
Seraph: They convinced themselves that they were the avatars of absolute good,
        and branded demons as absolute evil.
Seraph: Vulcanus' choices have been the result of such misconceptions, and his
        concern for the future. I should have been more mindful of these 
        things.

[Vulcanus steps forward]

Vulcanus: Master Lamington...!
Seraph: Did you think that I was oblivious to your actions, Vulcanus?
Seraph: I am well informed of all that has transpired.

[Vulcanus jumps back]

Vulcanus: Ugh...!!

[Vulcanus tries to run away, but the Seraph turns him into a rose; the party
faces Vulcanus as this happens with exclamation points above their heads]

Seraph: Angel Trainee Flonne.

[Everyone turns to face the Seraph]

[Flonne steps forward]

Flonne: Yes.
Seraph: You have helped save the Netherworld from the invasion of the Earth
        Defense Force, and thwarted the plans of Archangel Vulcanus.
Seraph: However, the fact remains that you have harmed other angels. You are 
        to be punished for your sin.
Flonne: ...I understand. I am prepared to accept any punishment.

[Laharl steps forward]

Laharl: Wait a minute!
Laharl: Why does Flonne have to be punished!?

[Gordon steps forward]

Gordon: It makes no sense whatsoever! She only did what was right!

[Etna steps forward]

Etna: Don't you dare lay a finger on her! You'll be sorry if you do!!

[Flonne turns to face the party]

Flonne: It's alright... I knew there would be consequences for my actions.
Laharl: Flonne...!

[Flonne turns to face the Seraph]

Flonne: Master Lamington, I have one final request.
Flonne: I beg of you to forgive my companions. It is I who drew them into all
        of this.

[Laharl steps forward]

Laharl: This is crazy, Flonne! Why should you be punished!? You've done nothing
        wrong!!
Seraph: ...Very well. I shall pardon their sins.
Flonne: I am grateful for your kindness.
Laharl: Flonne...

[Flonne turns to face Laharl]

Flonne: Thank you, Laharl.
Flonne: I knew I could trust in you.
Flonne: You taught me that demons do have love in their hearts.
Laharl: This doesn't make any sense to me!
Laharl: We're done here, aren't we!? Let's go back to the Netherworld!

[Flonne begins to glow]

Flonne: Laharl... I want you to have this pendant.

[Laharl steps back]

Laharl: S, Stop! That's...!!

[Screen turns white]

[Scene flashes back to the point of the game in which Laharl recovered Flonne's
pendant]

Flonne: Laharl...!
Laharl: Hurry up and take it. My hand is burning!
Flonne: O, Okay!
Laharl: ...The pendant is telling me that my heart is wicked.
Laharl: That's good to know.

[Screen turns white]

[Scene shifts back to the Seraphic Sanctuary]

Laharl: That's the pendant we had to look for! You want it to burn me again!?

[Flonne gives her pendant to Laharl]

Laharl: Aaaaaaaagh!!
Laharl: ...Huh?
Laharl: ...Hey, something's wrong. It's not doing anything...
Flonne: *giggle* Just as I thought.
Laharl: ...Whaddya mean?
Flonne: The wickedness has faded from your heart, Laharl. That's why the
        pendant isn't punishing you anymore.
Laharl: What!? That can't possibly be right!! I'm a demon! The Overlord!!

[Flonne steps back]

Flonne: I'm so glad... I can say good-bye without any worries now.

[Flonne walks toward the Seraph]

[Etna steps forward]

Etna: Good-bye...? Flonne...!

[The entire party steps forward]

[Camera turns to face Laharl as he steps forward]

Laharl: Hey... Where do you think you're going?

[Flonne turns to face Laharl]

Flonne: Good-bye, Laharl. I hope you become a magnificent Overlord.
Flonne: Good-bye, everyone. Thank you so much for everything.

[Flonne turns away from the party, and Laharl attempts to run after her]

Laharl: Wait! Flonne!

[The Seraph begins casting a spell on Flonne, and she begins to glow in white]

Flonne: Good-bye...

[Screen turns white]

[Scene resumes, with Flonne having been turned into a flower]

Etna: Flonne... Why...!?
Laharl: ......
Seraph: The existence of Angel Trainee Flonne has been erased, along with her
        sins...

[Laharl steps forward]

Laharl: Flonne...
Laharl: Hey, Flonne... What are you doing...? I didn't say you could do 
        this...!
Laharl: You're going to abandon me? Like my mother did?
Laharl: I didn't give you permission!
Laharl: Is this what you call love!? If it is, then I'll never believe in love!
        Ever!!

[Etna steps forward]

Etna: Prince...
Seraph: King Laharl, do you despise me?
Laharl: Despise you...!? Of course I do, you bastard!!
Laharl: ...kill...you...
Laharl: I'll kill you!!
Laharl: AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!

[Fire illuminates from Laharl as the screen turns white]

Seraph: (This is my punishment... I willingly accept it.)

single ally)

[After the battle, Laharl is shown standing over the Seraph, sword in hand]

Laharl: ......

[Etna steps forward]

Etna: What's the matter, Prince?

[Laharl sheathes his sword and turns away]

Laharl: ...I've had enough of this.
Etna: ...?
Laharl: It's not like this will bring her back...
Laharl: ...Besides, if that Love Freak was here, she would have stopped me
        anyway...
Etna: Prince...

[Laharl steps in front of Flonne's flower and sheds a tear]

Laharl: What is this...? A tear...?
Laharl: ...Hmph.
Laharl: I never knew I could shed tears...
Laharl: ......

[Laharl turns to face Etna]

Laharl: Etna.

[Etna steps forward]

Etna: Yes?
Laharl: ...I leave the rest to you.

[Camera turns to face Etna as the party steps forward]

Etna: P, Prince...?

[Gordon steps forward]

Gordon: What are you planning on doing!?

[Etna steps back]

Etna: You're not planning on...!?
Laharl: I think I finally understand why my mother sacrificed herself to save
        me...

[Kurtis steps forward]

Kurtis: You want to exchange your life for hers!? Is that even possible...?
Laharl: ...Who knows. But, this is the least I can do for her now...

[Jennifer steps forward]

Jennifer: Harlie...!
Laharl: ...Farewell.

[Laharl turns toward Flonne's flower, and Etna tries to run after him]

Etna: Prince!!

Laharl: Haaaaaaaaahhhh!!

[Laharl begins to glow in white]

Voice: Wait!!

[Mid-Boss appears on the side of the room, and everyone but Laharl turns to
face him]

Laharl: What do you want now? As you can see, I'm busy.
Laharl: We'll call this your victory, so don't bother me.

[Camera turns to face Mid-Boss as he walk up to Laharl]

Mid-Boss: I am glad that you have come to terms with your mother's decision.
Mid-Boss: You should thank your companions for teaching you the importance of
          love and friendship.

[Laharl stops glowing and turns to face Mid-Boss]

Laharl: ...What?

[Mid-Boss steps forward]

Mid-Boss: Do not throw away the life that your mother gave you.
Mid-Boss: Here... Look.

[Laharl steps away from Flonne's flower as the screen turns white]

[Scene resumes, with Flonne back to normal]

Laharl: Flonne...!!

[Flonne looks around]

Flonne: ...Huh? Where am I...?
Flonne: I was supposed to be punished, and...

[Flonne turns to face Mid-Boss]

Mid-Boss: Indeed you were. You are no longer an Angel Trainee. Now, you are a
          Fallen Angel.

[Question mark appears over Flonne's head, and exclamation marks above everyone
else's]

Laharl: What the...!?

[Etna steps forward]

Etna: Flonne, your wings...!

[Exclamation mark appears over Flonne's head]

Flonne: I'm, I'm...!?
Mid-Boss: Hmhmhm... That is the punishment she received from Seraph Lamington.

[Everyone turns to face Mid-Boss]

Laharl: What!? Then, he wasn't going to kill her in the first place?
Mid-Boss: Of course not. She is a very important person... not only to 
          Celestia, but to the Netherworld as well.
Laharl: What is that supposed to mean?
Mid-Boss: Celestia and the Netherworld were not always in opposition. Seraph
          Lamington and another person of influence dreamed of reuniting them.
Mid-Boss: He sent Angel Trainee Flonne to the Netherworld, to begin bridging 
          the gap between the two worlds.
Mid-Boss: Laharl, Flonne... You are the knot that binds the two worlds 
          together.
Laharl: We're the knot...?

[Mid-Boss turns away]

Mid-Boss: Hmhmhm... I'm sure that one day you will understand.
Laharl: ......
Laharl: Tell me... Who are you, really? Why do you know so much?
Mid-Boss: Hmhmhm... Have I not told you before?

[Mid-Boss turns to face the party]

Mid-Boss: I am the Dark Adonis. My presence here is merely coincidence...

[White light descends from the sky, and it shows Laharl's mother when it
reaches the ground]

Mid-Boss: Become a magnificent Overlord, Laharl...
Laharl: ...Hmph. You don't have to tell me.
Laharl: I'll build a legacy even greater than my old man's!
Mid-Boss: *chuckle* Farewell...

face him]

Etna: Mid-Boss?

[Camera turns to face Mid-Boss as he walk to up Laharl]

Mid-Boss: I did not make it in time...
Mid-Boss: It was I who was to accept punishment...

[Laharl turns to face Mid-Boss]

Laharl: ...Are you out of your mind? He deserved to die.
Laharl: He killed Flonne... even though she had complete faith in him.
Mid-Boss: You are mistaken. The Seraph had no intention of killing her...
Mid-Boss: He fought you to atone for his sins, and to test you.
Laharl: To test me...?

[Mid-Boss steps forward]

Mid-Boss: Yes... He was testing your heart.
Mid-Boss: If you had spared him, Flonne's life would have been restored.
          However...

[Laharl sheathes his sword and stands in front of Flonne's flower]

Laharl: Are you trying to say... I'm the one that's responsible for Flonne's
        death!?
Laharl: ...That she's dead...because of me...?
Etna: Prince...
Laharl: ......

[Laharl walks toward the party]

Laharl: ...Etna.

[Etna steps forward]

Etna: Yes?
Laharl: ...Take good care of the Netherworld for me.
Etna: P, Prince...?

[Laharl turns toward Flonne's flower]

Laharl: I owe her at least this much...

[The party steps forward one by one, and Mid-Boss steps back]

Laharl: ...Farewell.
Etna: Prince!!
Laharl: Haaaaaaaaahhhh!!

Laharl: ...If there is a god, may he hear my plea!!
Laharl: I, Laharl, have one request! Take my life, in exchange for Flonne's!

Etna: What are you talking about? They all look the same.
Flonne: But, look at its head...

Mid-Boss: No... It was I who should have been held accountable...

[Laharl turns to face Mid-Boss]

Laharl: ...Are you out of your mind? He deserved to die.
Laharl: He killed Flone... Even though she had complete faith in him.
Mid-Boss: The Seraph is still alive. Just barely, though.

[Mid-Boss steps forward]

Mid-Boss: Let the truth be known...

[Laharl sheathes his sword and faces Flonne's flower]

[Flonne looks around]

Flonne: ...Huh? Where am I...?
Flonne: I was supposed to be punished, and...

[Laharl steps forward]

Laharl: Flonne...! What's this all about!?

[Laharl and Flonne turn to face Mid-Boss]

Mid-Boss: Celestia and the Netherworld were not always in opposition. Seraph
          Lamington and another person of influence dreamed of reuniting them.
Mid-Boss: He sent Angel Trainee Flonne to the Netherworld, to meet you and 
          begin rebuilding trust.
Mid-Boss: You and Flonne are the knot that binds the two worlds together.
Mid-Boss: He had no intention of punishing her from the very beginning...

[Camera turns to face Flonne as she steps back]

Flonne: We're... the knot...?
Laharl: Why didn't he tell me that!? If only I'd known...
Mid-Boss: His heart was in pain, for having used you in his plan.
Mid-Boss: He chose this as his punishment...
Flonne: ......
Laharl: ...Hmph. I guess my heart is wicked, after all.

[Laharl turns to face Flonne]

Laharl: I didn't know... But still, in my anger, I...

[Flonne steps forward]

Flonne: ...Stop it! It's not your fault!
Flonne: A lot of things happened since I came to the Netherworld, but I really
        enjoyed my time with you guys!
Flonne: You showed me the importance of friendship!!
Flonne: You taught me that angels, demons, and humans are not as different as
        they might seem!!
Flonne: So, please...!

[Camera turns to face Laharl]

Laharl: ......

[Laharl walks toward the party]

Laharl: Etna.

[Etna steps forward]

Etna: Yes?
Laharl: ...Take my place.
Laharl: I'm not ready to be to Overlord yet.

Laharl: ...Farewell.

Flonne: Laharl...!!

Laharl: Prinny Land...?
Etna: This is where Prinnies who escape from the Netherworld or Celestia come.
Laharl: I see... In other words, it's a hangout for losers.
Etna: I wouldn't write them off so quickly...
Etna: I've heard that there are Prinny rebels here who were exiled from the
      Netherworld and Celestia.

+ XX. Etna's Journal Entries +
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

[Etna stands over a desk, pondering her thoughts]

=== i. My Memory ===

This is my secret chamber... Only I know how to get in here...

This is where my most precious memories were locked away...

That I remember, but I can't remember what they were...

When I try to remember, my heart aches...

This pain is proof of how dear those memories are to me...

I have to get them back...

=== ii. Feelings of Guilt ===

A certain demon stole my memories... There's something he wants me to do in
exchange...

I'd do just about anything to get my memories back...

But, would the King forgive me...?

That's my only fear...

=== iii. Celestial Visitor ===

A funny angel arrived from Celestia recently...

She has orders from the Seraph to assassinate the King...

But, the King died two years ago... What a bonehead...

Anyway, if she gets in my way, I'll have to get rid of her...

=== iv. The Portrait ===

I saw a portrait of the King in Hoggmeiser's palace...

My heart aches when I look at his Majesty's face...

Do my memories have something to do with the King...?

I'll find out soon enough...

Just a little longer until I get my memories back...

=== v. Doubt & Decision ===

This is all for my memories...

It won't do any good feeling guilty now...

I have nothing more to lose...

Who cares about anyone else...? I have my own way of life...

No one's gonna get in my way...

This is my only option...

=== vi. Image of the King ===

The memories Maderas stole from me are starting to return...

It should all come back to me with time...

Still, the Prince really surprised me...

I thought he'd kill any traitors...

I was prepared to accept my punishment...

Why did he forgive me...? I don't understand...

But...

I have a feeling that the King would have done the same thing...

He's more like his father than he seems...

=== vii. Eternal Loyalty ===

Even though there are still gaps, my memories are slowly coming back...

One thing I remember... When I first started as a servant in the castle...

Every day was hard...

I lost heart, and my will to live was fading...

At times, I even welcomed death...

That was when the King reached out his hand to me...

I wanted to help him... I wanted to be praised by him... I wanted to be
accepted by him...

I never felt like that before...

And so, I pledged my loyalty to him...

Even when I lost my memories, that loyalty remained...

Even now... and forever... My feelings will never change...

=== viii. Hatred ===

More and more is coming back to me with each passing day...

I remember the time...
...the time the King and Queen first met.

A demon falling in love with a human... I felt the King was going somewhere out
of my reach...

His happy face... The first time I saw his smile...

My heart ached...

As I watched the King smiling, I felt my hatred for the Queen grow...

My loyalty to the King... I felt like all my feelings were being ignored
because of that woman...

......

And then, the Prince was born...

The son of the King... The son of that woman...

I was torn by opposing feelings back then... Things have started to change
recently.

But, my feelings toward the Queen ended before I could deal with them...

=== ix. A Mother's Love ===

All this time, that woman was among us as one of the Prinnies...

...She just watched over the Prince without saying a word...

How could she stand it...? I don't get it...

She was always like that... She always filled my heart with discord...

But, my hatred from back then is gone...

Has time erased it...? Or...

=== x. Recalling ===

Another fragment of my memory returned...

It's a memory of when...
...the King died...

Publicly, it was reported that the King died by choking on a black pretzel, but
that's not the truth...

I believed that story, too, until my memory returned... The King's death was...

That's right... The King left to halt an invasion from the alternate 
Netherworld...

...When he came back, he had lost almost all of his power...

I was willing to save him in exchange for my life... The way the Queen saved
the Prince...

But, the King wouldn't allow it... He told me to live...

Then...

...I can't remember the rest...

But, I made an important promise...

Something really important...

=== xi. The Promise ===

I remember now... It's one of my dearest memories...

The words the King left with me on his deathbed...

"Raise my son to be the next Overlord"...

Those were his dying words...

And in the end...

......

I made a promise to the King...
...that I'd protect the Prince...

The King worried about the Prince until the very end...

I hated the Prince... I envied the Prince...

But, that was my promise to the King... I must keep my word... I vowed in my
heart to do so...

=== xii. Stolen Memories ===

My precious memory... The dying words of the King...

I'd protect the Prince... Not long after I made that promise, my memories were
stolen...

I don't know if he knew of my promise, but it was Maderas who stole my memories
and plotted to take over the throne...

He proposed a deal with me...

If I wanted my memories back, I had to kill the Prince...

It's ironic that in my stolen memories was my promise to protect the Prince...

But, I had no choice...

=== xiii. Cost of Betrayal ===

To get back my memories from Maderas, I tried to poison the Prince...

But, I couldn't go through with it...

I couldn't stand being Maderas' pawn anymore...

And... the King's voice was in the back of my mind...

So instead, I used the Prince to win my memories back from Maderas.

But...

I had tried to poison him... I had betrayed him...

Even though my memories were stolen, I still broke my promise to the King...

King Krichevskoy... You must be angry with me...
