Script from the game Mega Man X3.
Scene 1: Prologue
(The scene opens with a side-scrolling view of Doppler Town.)
Narrator: In the year 21XX, all the Mavericks have been neutralized thanks to the efforts of a Reploid scientist named "Dr. Doppler". Using his Neuro Computer, he has been able to suppress any abnormal behavior in the Reploids and prevent them from going berserk. Many of the most advanced Reploids have gathered near their new mentor and founded "Dopple Town", a perfect Utopian community. With Dr. Doppler guiding them, the world seemed to enter a new golden age... After a few months...
Narrator: The Mavericks who were supposed to have been neutralized by the Neuro Computer suddenly appeared and began to riot... At Maverick Hunter Headquarters, all the intelligence indicated that Dr. Doppler was the mastermind behind the invasion. Soon, the call went out to X and Zero destroy the invading Mavericks and bring Dr. Doppler to justice.
(Scene changes to view X and Zero.)
Maverick Hunter HQ: Maverick Hunters X and Zero, dispatch!
(Scene changes to view the Maverick Hunter HQ.)
Narrator: A few hours later, contact was made by the Headquarters of Maverick Hunter.
Maverick Hunter HQ: This is the Headquarters of Maverick Hunter. We are under attack from the Doppler force. All units return to base immediately and return fire.
(Scene fades out.)
Scene 2: Back to Headquarters
(X and Zero teleport outside the HQ.)
Zero: X, I'll clear out the enemies out here. You go ahead and deal with the ones inside.
(Zero teleports away, and X enters the HQ. After a short while, he comes across another Hunter.)
X: Mac, where have you been?
(Mac fires a shot that traps X in a force field.)
Mac: You're far too trusting, X. I'm now a member of Doppler's Army! You will make a fine addition to our forces once you have been shown the true destiny of the Reploid race!
(A Hangerter appears and takes X away. Mac teleports out. A hole is blown through the ceiling and Zero jumps down. Not knowing where X is, he makes his way through the stage until he comes to a room with Mac and captive X inside. Zero easily destroys Mac and frees X.)
Zero: Are you okay, X?
X: Thanks Zero. I'm okay.
Zero: I'll check around headquarters again. Be on your guard, X.
(Zero teleports away and X continues through the stage. X finds and destroys Maoh the Giant, after which Zero teleports in.)
Zero: Looks like we've swept most of the enemies out of here. I'll go back and check on headquarters. Call me if you need me. See you later, X.
(X and Zero teleport out.)
Scene 3: The Light Capsules
Dr. Light: Enter this capsule, X. Take this Leg upgrade. The upgrade will enhance your mobility in the air. You will be able to dash left, right or even straight up into the air.

(The hologram disappears, and X steps inside the capsule and receives the Armor Upgrade.)
(X is fighting through Crush Crawfish's stage, and comes across another capsule.)
Dr. Light: Enter this capsule, X. Install this Body Chip. This chip will increase your defensive ability. Your defense shields will be enhanced and you will receive even less damage.

(The hologram disappears, and X steps inside the capsule and receives the Body Chip.)
(If X already has a Chip installed)
Dr. Light: What...? You've already installed another chip. I'm sorry, but you can't be equipped with more than one chip. Life is sometimes cruel, isn't it X...
(X is fighting through Dr. Doppler's stage, and comes across another capsule.)

Bit and Byte: Affirmative, Dr. Doppler!
(As Bit and Byte teleport back out, another mysterious Reploid teleports in, hidden by the shadows.)
Mysterious Maverick: Alive, Dr. Doppler? You are so kind.
Dr. Doppler: Watch your mouth or I'll put you back where I found you! Even with your enhancements, you are still no match for me.
Mysterious Maverick: Thanks for the upgrade Doctor, but I have a score to settle... and I'll do it my way...
(The figure teleports out.)
Dr. Doppler: Fine. Just make sure you do it. I can't believe that Maverick Hunter defeated my master twice in the past...
(Scene fades out.)
Scene 5: Déjà Vu
(X comes across an unknown teleporting capsule, and uses it to go to a strange factory. After fighting through the factory stage, he enters a room with Vile in a new Ride Armor.)

X: Vile?! Zero and I destroyed you years ago!!
Vile: This factory is set to blow in a matter of minutes! Until then, I'll try and keep you busy!
(X battles Vile, destroying his Ride Armor, but Vile is unscathed and attacks X again.)

Scene 8: The Battle Body
(X and Zero meet back at Dr. Cain's lab.)
X: Any problems, Dr. Cain?
Dr. Cain: I pulled some memory chips from the Mavericks controlled by Dr. Doppler. I analyzed them and found out that Dr. Doppler is trying to create a powerful new Battle Body by collecting the "special abilities" from the latest breed of Reploids.
X: Battle Body...?
Dr. Cain: First I thought Dr. Doppler was trying to create it for himself. But the information indicates that he will not be able to interface with it, so it must be for someone else.
Zero: Can he still be alive!?
Dr. Cain: A hidden laboratory has been pinpointed found at Point D. All indications are that it is Dr. Doppler's secret lab. You need to get there immediately.
X: On my way....
Zero: It's time I put an end to Sigma for good!

Byte: Dr. Doppler modified us after our first battle against you.
Bit and Byte: Take a look at these new upgrades!

(X encounters a large mosquito-like robot. If Zero fights it instead of X, it will catch Zero in a death grip and explode, seriously damaging him.)
X: What was that explosion? Zero!! Are you okay?!
Zero: Sorry, X... I failed... It seems my power generator is damaged...I'll try to make it back to Dr. Cain's lab for repairs. You can't tell what is waiting for you, X. You better take my Beam Sabre with you... Crush them all, X. You're our last hope...
(Zero teleports out.)

Doppler: I've been waiting for you X. I'm Dr. Doppler. I've been watching your battles closely. Your victories over my men have been most impressive. I need superior reploids like yourself, X! I offer you the chance to join us. Together we shall build a Utopia where the Reploids rule under the watchful eyes of Sigma, our lord and master.
X: No way, Doc! Your schemes end here and now!!
Doppler: Perhaps you are not as smart as I once thought! Prepare to be ripped apart and to be born again as part of the new body of Sigma!
(X battles Doppler, eventually defeating him.)
Doppler: You are strong X... Strong enough to defeat Sigma...
X: Doppler, can you talk?!
Doppler: Sigma's true form is that of a computer virus... I was corrupted by him and... I created a horrific new body for him...
X: Where's the body now?
Doppler: It's in the underground hangar of this lab... I don't think Sigma has occupied it yet... Don't worry about me... Destroy the body before it is too late. Time is running out...
X: Thanks, Doc...
(X teleports out, leaving Doppler behind.)

If Zero was damaged by Mosquitus
(X encounters Sigma at the end of the fortress.)
Sigma: We meet again, X... It was easy to corrupt that fool, Doppler. And I would have succeeded if you hadn't interfered. But we are always destined to meet, aren't we X? Let the eternal struggle begin!!
(X battles Sigma, and defeats him. The room goes dark except for two glowing eyes.)
Sigma: Well done, X. But I'm far stronger than my previous forms. Behold the power of the ultimate battle body!!
(The room grows lighter again, and Sigma's giant second form is revealed. X eventually defeats him. Sigma appears again as a virus.)
Sigma: N... No!! This can't be! I can't even defeat you with this magnificent body..?! There seems to be only one choice now... I'll possess you!!
(Sigma chases X up a long shaft and down a hallway. X comes to a blank wall.)
X: Damn! It's dead end...
Sigma: Ha ha ha. Give up, X. I'll possess your body and rule the whole world!!
(If Zero was damaged by Mosquitus)
(Dr. Doppler jumps through a hole in the ceiling and lands on Sigma.)
Sigma: Aaarrrgggg... You're Doppler... How did you obtain this...
Doppler: How do you feel now, Sigma? Did you like my special vaccine for the Sigma virus? X, I'm sorry to have given you so much trouble. I know I can never really atone for what I've done... But I will try to set things right by taking Sigma with me!!
Sigma: My program... is... fading...
Doppler: X... it's... time to say... goodbye...
(Doppler and Sigma start to explode simultaneously. X teleports away just as the lab starts to collapse.)
(If Zero was not damaged by Mosquitus)
(Zero blows a hole through the ceiling and drops down. He slashes the virus with his Saber, and Sigma starts thrashing around in pain.)
Sigma: Garrrrr! You're... Zero... It's you... again...
Zero: How do you like that, Sigma? I picked up an Anti-Sigma virus program from Doppler and used it on my Beam Sabre! Sorry about the delay, X. I thought the program might be the only thing that would work against Sigma.
Sigma: My program... is... disappearing... But... someday... I... will...
(Sigma explodes, and X and Zero teleport away as the lab starts to collapse.)
Scene 14: Epilogue
*Note: If Zero was not damaged by Mosquitus, he will appear next to X in the epilogue.
(X stands on a cliff overlooking the exploding lab.)
Narrator: X has crushed Sigma's plan once again. But many questions still occupy his mind......
"Why must humans fight against Reploids...?"
"And, why must Reploids fight against each other..."
As X stares at the burning remnants of Doppler's lab, his body trembles from an unknown sorrow.
"What does fate have in store for me now?" he wonders.
He can only hope that someday Dr. Light's plan for him will finally be revealed.
Unknown to X, his destiny has already been decided.
To save mankind, he must destroy Zero.
But only time will tell, when and why.....
