Script from the game Mega Man X5, Zero's storyline only (See also: X's storyline).

Scene 1: Prologue

Narrator: In the year of 21XX

MEGAMAN X Episode 5

X5 scene01

(An unknown Reploid stands among some ruins.)

???: Yes, it's ready... Piece of cake. ...The Colony is still alive... I can let it fall at any time... Please let me do it now. I'm getting bored. All I have to do is... go back to the Earth and scatter the Virus.

Mysterious voice: You're exactly what I expected... You're doing a good job... hee hee hee...

???: Nobody dares to fight against you, except those stupid Maverick Hunters. I'll do anything for you, anything...

Mysterious voice: Good... I'm going to Earth to execute our plan. Stay where you are and await further instruction.

???: But I don't think you need to do it personally. Are they really a threat? Are X and Zero really so strong that you can't let someone else do it?

Mysterious voice: Hee hee hee... Yes, in a manner of speaking... Zero... I'll show you what you really are and who your true enemy is... Hee hee hee. Bwah ha ha ha ha!

Scene 2: Opening Stage

(Zero teleports to the beginning of a decimated highway.)

Alia: This is Hunter Base. Can you hear me, Zero? Sigma appeared suddenly and moved toward the statue which is under construction. X is already en route. Follow and regroup with him as soon as possible! You can reach the statue by going straight in that direction. Stay alert: several machines, even some deserted taxis, have become Mavericks in the area. Be careful.

(Zero fights through some of the stage, fighting through the Mavericks.)

Alia: What a terrible sight... The highway's been badly damaged... We've got to find Sigma before he destroys anything else, or we'll be in very serious trouble.

(Zero continues through the stage, coming to a broken building.)

Alia: This building is seriously damaged. The walls could collapse at any second, so try not to get trapped by falling rocks... You can take advantage of the lay of the terrain.

(Zero enters the building, coming to a very narrow platform.)

Alia: Can you see a red rope ahead of you? Jump and grab the rope carefully!

(Zero catches the rope and makes it to the next platform. He continues on through the building, coming to the base of a large statue.)

Alia: You've finally reached the Statue. I lost the traces of Sigma above you. I also lost contact with X... I've got a bad feeling, Zero... Something is going on above you... Climb up and find out what's up. But remember: The guard system of the construction site is malfunctioning as a result of the Sigma Virus. Kick the guard walls quickly and climb them!

(Zero climbs up the walls and gets to the next level of the building. He sees the damaged head of the Statue with X crouched on the floor, injured.)

Zero: X, what happened to you?

X: I was attacked by Sigma... My armor was damaged... But I'm all right...

Zero: Sigma! As usual, we can't trust him or underestimate his maliciousness... You should go back to the Hunter Base. I'll take over your mission.

X: I'm fine, even if I lost my armor... Besides, I can feel him... Sigma's very close.

Zero: I can feel him, too... ... Sigma is very close to us! ............ Or is Sigma coming for... us? After all, Hunters and Mavericks are very similar. We all simply... ... exist.

X: ............ Zero, what are you talking about? What's bothering you? Anyway, I'll continue to search the surrounding area... and Zero, ... ...Be careful. Signal me, if you need me.

(The top of the Statue begins to crumble, and Sigma's head breaks out of it.)

Sigma: Hee hee hee... Stupid Maverick Hunters! When I die, you will finally know the true power of a Maverick!

(Zero battles the Sigma Head and a massive explosion ensues after it is destroyed, covering the Earth with the Virus.)

Scene 3: The Virus Spreads

Zero: Oh, no! The Sigma Virus has been leaking out...

X: It must have spread all over and could cover the Earth by now... All of the Reploids are getting severely damaged!

Zero: Sigma! He lost to us on purpose... We have to evacuate immediately!

VirusLeaking

(Signas and Alia contact X from the Base.)

Alia: Th...s...Hunter...ase... This is Hunter Base. Do you read me? Are you all right? Any damage?

Signas: Are you all right? X! Zero! The entire Earth has been thrown into a panic because of the Sigma Virus. It's dangerous to stay there. Report back to the Base!

Zero: Darn it! Sigma! You will pay for this!

X: Even if we fight, what good will it do? A battle won't solve the problem.

MaverickHunters

(X and Zero teleport back to Hunter Base, meeting with Signas, Alia, and Douglas.)

Signas: The situation is far worse than expected. Sigma's explosion has spread the Virus all over the Earth. It's affecting both people and Reploids. What's worse, the Space Colony, Eurasia, is heading straight toward us. At this rate, it's going to crash into the Earth... in 16 hours. Everything... including Reploids and the entire human race, will be... ... annihilated...

Alia: We have no choice... For the sake of the world, we must destroy the Colony! ... But the only weapon we have in the Hunter Base that still works is... ... The Enigma... And it's very old. We also have a space shuttle. But, it's been affected by the Virus, and the Auto-Pilot function doesn't work... So we need someone to fly it to the Colony and let it collide... It's almost certain death, but we have no other choice.

Signas: How's the condition of the Enigma?

Douglas Explanation2

Douglas: Far from perfect... In order to use the Enigma, we need to build it up with some devices. The Enigma doesn't work as is.

Signas: Under the influence of the Sigma Virus, a lot of Maverick Hunters have become Mavericks, and only a few hunters remain normal. Let's join forces with the rest of our brothers and complete the Enigma!

Scene 4: Signas' Briefing

Signas: We only have 16 hours left before the collision! We have to upgrade the Enigma before then. There are 4 Mavericks that have the devices required to enhance the Enigma. Grizzly Slash, a weapons broker. He has a Crystal Ball. Duff McWhalen, he lives in the ocean. We will have access to Hydrogen if we can secure the ocean. Squid Adler, an Ex-Mavericks Hunter. He has an Energy Cart. Izzy Glow, a Doctor of Engineering. He has a Laser Device. There are 4 other Mavericks but these 4 Mavericks are the only ones who have the devices to upgrade the Enigma. X, Zero... You are the only Maverick Hunters that can match these Mavericks. Split up so you can gather the devices! Prepare your equipment and fulfill your mission!

X5HunterBase

Scene 5: Chase the Truck

(Zero teleports to a series of loaded trucks.)

Alia: Destroy the Maverick trucks! Then you'll be able to reach the security warehouse.

(If Zero doesn't need the Crystal Ball)
Alia: To be honest, you don't need to come to this area... But, you may find something useful... Destroy the Maverick trucks!

(Zero fights through the stage until he comes to the end of a line of trucks.)

Alia: The blue core you can see below is the weak point. If you destroy it, the truck will begin to explode. But you'd better jump to the next truck before this one blows! Then head to the end of the line.

(Zero destroys some of the trucks, then finds one that is already exploding.)

Alia: This truck has already begun to explode! Hurry and move to the next one!

(Zero escapes the explosion and jumps to the next truck only to see a head-on collision coming. He jumps off the truck just in time and finds himself in a warehouse.)

Alia: Is this the secret warehouse? I can't tell... but there ARE strong energy readings... We're getting even stronger energy readings from deep inside! It must be him! Stay on guard!

(Zero comes across a strange capsule. As he approaches, a hologram of Dr. Light appears.)

Dr. Light: You are... Zero, aren't you?

Zero: Who... are you...?

Dr. Light: Thank you for supporting X... Please continue to take care of him...

Zero: .........

Dr. Light: I'll give you a program for X's armor. Analyze and upload the data to X's main memory in a secure area. Then complete the Armor. For security reasons, the program is divided into 4 segments. Once you gather and upload all 4 parts, the armor will be complete. Nothing happens unless you have all 4. Ummm... Her name is Alia, isn't it...? She can analyze the data and let you upload it... Anyway, here is the program for legs. With the leg part equipped, X can fly through the air, and X becomes invincible while flying! Collide against the enemy to destroy them! I'm afraid that I know nothing about your body structure, therefore I can't enhance your power... I'm really sorry.

Zero: I don't need any power-ups... ............ But I have one thing I want to ask you... Sometimes unknown data emerges in my mind, and I can see a figure of an old professor... Do you know him by any chance?

Dr. Light: I don't know... Perhaps, if I saw him... But the data must be a fragment created by some error... I wouldn't worry about it. Why don't you just forget about it?

Zero: I don't worry about it, but when I saw you, I felt an urge to ask you...

Dr. Light: I'm sorry I couldn't give you the answer to your question...

Zero: Never mind. I didn't expect any answer... Anyway, I'll give X the Armor program.

(Zero takes the Armor program and continues on to find Grizzly Slash behind a boss gate.)

Grizzly Slash: Zero! Seeing you re-opens old wounds...

Zero: You should have that looked after. I don't have time for small talk. Give me the Crystal Ball...

Grizzly Slash: Why don't you do what you usually do, and force me to? You used to be a Maverick, right? That's what I heard. And, you destroyed Sigma, didn't you?

Zero: What, that old story...? If you dare to try and fight me, then I accept your challenge anytime, anywhere.

Grizzly Slash: Hunters and Sigma are very similar. Very aggressive and overconfident.

Zero: What? We're nothing like that scum!

Grizzly Slash: Oh yes, you are... I'm just an arms dealer... But you... You destroy anyone who stands against you. Now I'm going to make you pay for what you did to me, Maverick Hunter!

(If Zero doesn't need the Crystal Ball)
Grizzly Slash: Zero! Seeing you re-opens old wounds... Hey, you look depressed... What, did you make a mistake, or something? Even the Hunter who destroyed Sigma makes mistakes! Ha ha ha!

Zero: Your childish antics grow tiring. If you dare to fight me, then I accept your challenge: Anytime, anywhere.

Grizzly Slash: I'll make you pay for what you did to me, Maverick Hunter!

(Zero fights and defeats Grizzly Slash, who explodes.)

Alia: You got the DNA data from the boss you have just defeated! From this DNA data, the special weapon has become yours! Equip the weapons using the L1, R1 button. Every enemy has a weak point. Find the most effective weapon for each enemy. Plus, if you defeat a high level boss, you may be able to create not only a weapon, but other items as well. In that case, please select which item you wish to create.

Alia: Grizzly Slash had a Crystal Ball! This should greatly increase the striking ability of the Enigma. I'll ask another Hunter to do the recovery operations so you can return to the Hunter Base.

(If Zero didn't need the part)
Alia: We've found the Crystal Ball that Grizzly had. We don't need it anymore, but we'll still take it back to the base. I'll ask another Hunter to fetch it. Please return to the Hunter Base.

Scene 6: The Mercenary

(Back at the Hunter Base.)

Alia: Incoming message from... ...sources unknown.

X5 scene03

Signas: Who's this? I've never seen him...

(The same unknown Reploid from before appears on a screen.)

???: Nice to meet you, Maverick Hunters. I have no hard feelings toward you, but this is my mission... Before long, I will attack the Hunter Base... Aw, are Mr. X and Mr. Zero there? Please play with me! I'm really bored... Don't worry! We'll fight like true sportsmen, hee hee hee. Oh, I almost forgot to introduce myself. I am Dynamo. See you soon...

Signas: How dare he... at a time like this?! Should we even attempt to fight against one so arrogant?

Scene 7: Obliterate the Battleship

(Zero teleports to an underwater location, and sees the giant battle submarine U-555.)

Alia: Wow! It looks like the giant ship "U-555" is coming right at you! I don't believe it. It belonged to a marine museum. What an incredible influence the Sigma Virus has! But, so be it... To secure the sea, we have no choice but to fight against the "U-555". Be careful not to get stuck on the complicated terrain.

(If Zero doesn't need the Hydrogen)'
Alia: We don't need to secure the ocean anymore. This area is under the fin of the huge ship, the U-555. But, if you want to go here, I won't stop you.

(Zero destroys part of the submarine's body and continues on through the stage. He finds himself in a room made of wood.)

Alia: What is this place... Are you in an old sunken ship? The "U-555" is trying to escape. It went deep in this direction. Follow it!

(Zero destroys the rest of the U-555 and continues on until he finds Duff McWhalen.)

Duff McWhalen: Zero... Long time no see...

Zero: I'm here to secure the ocean nearest the Hunter Base. It has run high...

Duff McWhalen: The Enigma requires a large amount of hydrogen... so you must want the ocean in order to produce hydrogen...

Zero: Precisely. Please cooperate.

Duff McWhalen: I've already been infected... Shall we fight for old time's sake? A duel! And I'll show no mercy!

Zero: Your ship is about to set sail... ...for the last time!

(If Zero doesn't need the Hydrogen)
Duff McWhalen: Zero... It's been a long time... But you are later thanI expected. Tell me what's been happening on land.

Zero: ............

Duff McWhalen: The world is facing extinction, right? Since I've also been infected with the Virus, why don't you fight me once before you die? A battle between two men! ...Expect no mercy!

Zero: Fine... May you rest in peace... ...in the sea.

(Zero fights and defeats Duff McWhalen, who explodes.)

Alia: You got the DNA data from the boss you have just defeated! From this DNA data, the special weapon has become yours! Equip the weapons using the L1, R1 button. Every enemy has a weak point. Find the most effective weapon for each enemy. Plus, if you defeat a high level boss, you may be able to create not only a weapon, but other items as well. In that case, please select which item you wish to create.

Alia: We can produce Hydrogen from this ocean. If only the Hunter Base worked... then we wouldn't have to take water from the ocean... Now please return to Hunter Base... You have another mission to complete.

(If Zero didn't need the part)
Alia: Peace has been restored to the ocean, at least temporarily. But the "U-555" will start moving again someday... unfortunately... The ocean is so terribly polluted... Now please return to the Hunter Base.

Scene 8: Dynamo's First Strike

(Back at the Hunter Base.)

Signas: Emergency! Dynamo is attacking the Hunter Base. Fight back immediately!

(Zero teleports to where Dynamo is.)

Dynamo: Nice to meet you. You are Zero, aren't you, the famous and persistent hunter.

Zero: What's it to you?

Dynamo: Well, to stretch a point, I want to disturb what you are doing. Oh, don't worry. I just want to disturb you. I don't intend to kill you... But you wish to fight to the death, don't you?

Zero: ...............

Dynamo: You think you're so cool, you don't care what I say... In that case, have it your way. I'll fight you... until you die.

(Zero fights Dynamo and defeats him.)

Dynamo: Just as I thought: You are strong... You never let up. I'll retreat with this result... But I advise you to relax a little, or you'll die from all the stress. Well then. Adios, amigo!

(Dynamo teleports out and Zero returns to Base.)

Scene 9: Electric Trap

(Zero rides a Ride Chaser through part of a factory, using it to get through several traps. After a while, he comes to some level ground and uses the Ride Chaser to destroy a wall.)

Alia: Hello? Are you all right? You couldn't walk here because the terrain is too badly damaged. Even the Ride Chaser nearly didn't make it. By the way, did you notice that there are energy items along the way? Those energy items and the door in front of you seem to be corresponding... If you have the items, shoot them at the door. Then the door may be opened.

(If Zero collected all the energy items)
Alia: You did it! The door has been broken! I wonder what is inside... Proceed with care...

(If Zero didn't collect all the energy items)
Alia: ......... No response... Still... It seems you came close to destroying it... Maybe you only need a few more energy items...

(Zero goes through a door and comes across another Light Capsule.)

Dr. Light: This is the program for the head part of the Falcon Armor. Analyze and upload the data to X's main memory in a secure area. Once X uploads all 4 of the programs, the Falcon Armor will be complete. With this head part equipped, X can use the special weapons using less energy. Now, take advantage of your enhanced special weapons and triumph! And give my best to X.

(Zero continues through the area, and finds a hostage being held by a Maverick Mechaniloid.)

Alia: A lab scientist is in custody. Save them and let them escape. There might be some cartridges in this laboratory that still work... We want to obtain one, don't we.

(Zero moves on and finds a locked door.)

Alia: The lock system of the shutter is broken. If you attack the lock system, it will give power to it. You can possibly open the shutter this way. However... Since the lock system is almost broken, the circuit will soon break again. Please keep aware of the amount of time you will have to open the shutter.

(Zero moves on to find more electronic locks.)

Alia: There are two kinds of lock systems. The color of the shutter and the lock system correspond to each other.

(Zero eventually finds Squid Adler.)

Squid Adler: Zero, I never expect you to come here... It must be an emergency...

Zero: You assumed right. You don't need me to explain any more, do you?

Squid Adler: Always so pushy... You haven't changed at all... I made the right choice when I resigned as a Hunter... I don't want to be a rude jerk like you.

Zero: Oh, come on. I just have a hard time listening to you babble... You know what I want, don't you?

Squid Adler: You're free to take such a worthless thing... But what a simpleton you are. Even if you get it, you can't change the fate of the Earth! Every Reploid has been infected by the Virus and become a...Ma Ma Ma Mave ve vER...

Zero: No! He's been infected! Relax... I'll put you out of your misery. Good bye, Squid Adler...

(If Zero doesn't need the Energy Cartridge)
Squid Adler: HA HA HA HAAAA!! ANOTHER FISH HAS BEEN TRAPPED!! I'M A MAVERICK HUNTER! I'LL RETIRE YOU.

Zero: He's already become a Maverick... I'll put you out of your misery now... Say your prayers, Squid Adler...

(Zero fights and defeats Squid Adler, who explodes.)

Alia: You got the DNA data from the boss you have just defeated! From this DNA data, the special weapon has become yours! Equip the weapons using the L1, R1 button. Every enemy has a weak point. Find the most effective weapon for each enemy. Plus, if you defeat a high level boss, you may be able to create not only a weapon, but other items as well. In that case, please select which item you wish to create.

Alia: You got around so many traps. Thanks to you, we now have a precious Energy Cartridge. Squid used to be a Hunter, but had become a Maverick. It must have been hard for you even though it was your mission... Let's restore the peace for him...

(If Zero didn't need the part)
Alia: You got around so many traps. Thanks to you, we got an Energy Cartridge. But we have finished with the Enigma now so we don't need the Energy Cart anymore. Squid used to be a Hunter but had become a Maverick... It must have been hard for you even though it was your mission... Let's restore the peace for him...

Scene 10: Fortress Lab Infiltration

(Zero teleports to the beginning of Izzy Glow's stage.)

Alia: We can learn lots about Dr. Izzy Glow just from looking at this laboratory... He is the world leading authority on laser technology. Therefore, the laser he created will be great use to the Enigma. I hope he will willingly give one to us, but... ...I heard he is a very stubborn person so this might not be easy.

(If Zero doesn't need the part)
Alia: Dr. Izzy Glow's laboratory... You have no reason to be here since we don't need the Enigma anymore.

(Zero continues through the stage, coming to a lethal platform of spikes.)

Alia: The platforms can't be destroyed, so you will have to time it just right to go through...

(Zero passes the platform, but finds more spikes on the ceiling and floor directly after.)

Alia: You should proceed by stepping on the platforms.

(Zero fights through more of the stage until he finds a door.)

Alia: Break the door that you can see below, and proceed to the next room.

(Zero continues into the next room and fights the Prism Guardian. After that, he finds a long hallway filled with laser cannons.)

Alia: The defense system is engaged. It attacks you with powerful plasma. If you have some kind of weapon, you may be able to neutralize it.

(Zero destroys some of the cannons and finds another Light Capsule.)

Dr. Light: This is the program for the arm part of the Falcon Armor. Analyze and upload the data to X's main memory in a secure area. Once X uploads all 4 of the programs, the Falcon Armor will be complete. With the arm part equipped, X can maximize and attack with the original shot, but he can't charge the special weapons. As this armor specializes the mobility, if he wants to enhance his attack power, he should use other armor. Please give this message to X.

(Zero fights through more cannons and sees a steep incline.)

Alia: Dr. Izzy Glow's room is above you. There are several plasma defense devices installed on the way to the room. Use a weapon that can attack upward!

(Zero finds Izzy Glow behind a boss gate.)

Zero: Dr. Izzy Glow, will you do us a favor?

Izzy Glow: My work is not for Maverick Hunters. I've never trusted your approach. Therefore, I won't cooperate with you. However... I find you fascinating... No one has ever managed to analyze the infamous X and Zero... But it's too late... Soon, I'll be one of the Mavericks... It's time... I'll have to learn about you through battle. Now... put me out of my misery!

(If Zero doesn't need the Laser Device)
Zero: Dr. Izzy Glow... Oh, am I too late?

Izzy Glow: Yes, you are. I've already been infected by the Virus. However, I'm still interested in you. X and Zero, whom nobody has ever succeeded in analyzing... I guess my only hope is to analyze you by fighting you before I lose myself completely and become a Maverick... Now, fight me. And put me out of my misery!

(Zero fights and defeats Izzy Glow, who explodes.)

Alia: You got the DNA data from the boss you have just defeated! From this DNA data, the special weapon has become yours! Equip the weapons using the L1, R1 button. Every enemy has a weak point. Find the most effective weapon for each enemy. Plus, if you defeat a high level boss, you may be able to create not only a weapon, but other items as well. In that case, please select which item you wish to create.

Alia: It looked like a quiet laboratory... but the inside was in complete ruins. The Sigma Virus has caused total disorder everywhere... In order to fix the situation... we need to make good use of Dr. Izzy Glow's Laser Device. We've finished taking the Laser Device back to the base. Thank you for your help. We'll meet you at the Hunter Base.

(If Zero didn't need the part)
Alia: We wasted Dr. Izzy Glow's research... Although we got the Laser Device, We don't need it anymore. Thank you for your work, anyway. We'll meet you at the Hunter Base.

Scene 11: Before the Enigma

X5 scene02

*Note: This scene only occurs if all the Enigma parts have been collected, but the cannon itself has not yet fired.

Douglas: At last the Enigma has been completed! It's old, but we reinforced it with some devices... It should work fine... Well, we're ready!

Scene 12: The Enigma Fires

(Everyone meets at the Base after collecting all the Enigma parts.)

Signas: The time has come at last! We are going to launch the Enigma. The fate of the Earth depends on it.

X5 scene04

Alia: The energy, the power, the angle... everything is clear.

Signas: All right... Blastoff!!! (repeats 3 times from different camera angles)

EnigmaSideView

(The Enigma fires.)

If The Enigma is Successful

Signas: Did we make it? Did it crash? Alia, give us the report.

X5 scene05

Alia: We have succeeded. The colony has been destroyed. Although scraps from the colony will fall to the Earth, they shouldn't cause severe damages. We barely avoided total destruction... The damage is significant... I wonder when things will be restored.

Douglas: We'll take time and repair the damages.

Signas: Right. We have a lot to do... before the Earth can return to normal...

Enigma Success

Alia: No way...What is this reaction?

Signas: What's up, Alia?

Alia: I spotted the Virus reaction. And it's a new one... The readings are like that of Zero... I mean... a Zero Virus? It's like Zero, and seems to have very strong power... The Virus of the colony and that of the Earth have been mixed... and have produced a new Virus... ...The Zero Virus...

Alia: ...This is exactly the same reading... ...Should we call this the Zero Virus? The scraps of the Colony Virus and the Sigma Virus combined together...? ...I wonder what's going to happen...

If The Enigma is Unsuccessful

Signas: Did we make it? Did it crash? Alia, give us the report.

Alia: Negative! We destroyed only 62%! We have merely made it change orbit... and delayed the time of impact...

Signas: Curses!

EurasiaHit

Douglas: The Engima was not successful?

X: No, but we have a back-up plan. Let's concentrate on our next move!

Signas: All right! We will execute the Shuttle Operation! Don't give up hope! The future of the Earth depends on us! This is our last hope... "The Space Shuttle Operation."

Alia: The shuttle will approach and fly into the colony... The pilots will eject at the last minute. It's very dangerous because they could get sucked into the blast. In the end, I fear that this will fail just like the Enigma. We need to gather as many devices as we can to strengthen the shuttle's power. But the auto-pilot function doesn't work...

Signas: Okay, gather as many devices as you can.

Douglas: We'll try to upgrade it from here. This is the last chance for us...

Shuttle 3D

Signas: I know this mission is hard for you all, but the important thing is for us to stay optimistic... Now, let's get to work! Our only hope is the Space Shuttle. We can't waste any time... Let me describe the 4 Mavericks that have the devices to upgrade the Shuttle. Axle the Red, details unknown. He carries a concealed Orbiter Engine. Mattrex, a weapons storage guard. He owns a Booster for rockets. The Skiver, Reploid Air Force. An Orbiter Wing is in the base. Dark Dizzy, A mysterious Maverick. He has a Fuel Tank. We have little time but... We have to gather as many devices as possible.

Scene 13: Escape the Space Trap

(Zero teleports to the beginning of the Planetarium stage.)

Alia: At first glance, it may seem to be an ordinary planetarium. But in truth, it is also a space laboratory... Why don't you borrow a fuel tank for the space shuttles? But before you do that, there is something strange about the planetarium... So, the Sigma Virus has already polluted this facility, too... Your visit to the planetarium will be very interesting, I guess.

(If the Shuttle has already been launched)
Alia: At first sight, it may seem to be a plain planetarium. But... in truth, it is also a space laboratory... The Fuel Tank for the Shuttle is here, but we don't need it anymore... Your activities are up to you, but... if you don't feel it's worth while, then you should move on.

(If the Enigma still hasn't been launched)
Alia: At first sight, it may seem to be a plain planetarium. But... in truth, it is also a space laboratory... But, the facility is very different from what it used to be... You can't find the device for the Enigma here... As long as you understand that, do as you please.

(Zero reaches an area with several constellation maps in the background.)

Alia: I'm picking up a Maverick reading at the constellation. Watch out!!

(Zero finds a floating platform over a large pit.)

Alia: I guess you need to get on the lift... It is unstable, but there is no other way.

(Zero gets on the lift, which leads to more narrow platforms.)

Alia: Watch out for the track! It isn't moving on the right course! If you sense any danger, jump to the nearest place as soon as possible!

(Zero teleports to another area and finds a strange machine with large arrows pointing up and down.)

Alia: This is the gravity reverse device! It can control gravity, and turn it upside down. Of course, you may be able to take advantage of it.

(Zero eventually finds Dark Dizzy behind a boss gate.)

Dark Dizzy: Squeak! I know that smell...

Zero: Is he insane already?

Dark Dizzy: Squeak! We are comrades! Squeak! Let's not fight each other, squeak!

Zero: Crazy fool... What are you on about?

Dark Dizzy: Let's retire the Mavericks! Squeak!

Zero: You're one of them, I'll do you first!

(If Zero doesn't need the Fuel Tank)
Dark Dizzy: Squeak! This is GREAT! Very funny!

Zero: Is he insane already?

Dark Dizzy: The Earth has been severely damaged... Very cool, brother! Squeak! Let's retire all of the Reploids together!

Zero: ... You are the one who'll be retired.

(Zero fights and defeats Dark Dizzy, who explodes.)

Alia: You got the DNA data from the boss you have just defeated! From this DNA data, the special weapon has become yours! Equip the weapons using the L1, R1 button. Every enemy has a weak point. Find the most effective weapon for each enemy. Plus, if you defeat a high level boss, you may be able to create not only a weapon, but other items as well. In that case, please select which item you wish to create.

Alia: With regard to Dark Dizzy... He was a Maverick created three years ago by Sigma... But you have destroyed him... Since Sigma scattered a large amount of the Virus, he doesn't have any energy left to reproduce himself... By the way, we've found a Fuel Tank. Now the Shuttle will be able to fly to the space colony... Please return to the Hunter Base quickly.

(If Zero didn't need the Fuel Tank)
Alia: With regard to Dark Dizzy... Sigma created him as a Maverick three years ago. I wonder what Sigma was up to... Did you find anything underground? ... A Fuel Tank? All right. I will dispatch a team to pick it up. You return to the Hunter Base.

Scene 14: Suspicion

(Zero thinks to himself about his battles with Sigma.)

Sigma virus

Zero: I've been fighting the Sigma Virus for a long time... It is the virus that causes all Reploids to transform into Mavericks. The most dreadful virus to ever exist. Why... I wonder why I'm not harmed? Instead, I feel energy growing within my body... What on earth is happening to me? I have a bad feeling about this...

(In another room, Lifesaver and Signas discuss the same issue.)

Lifesaver: ...That's all of the report on Zero.

X5 scene28

Signas: Zero has fought Sigma several times, I believe he has the Virus antibodies.

Lifesaver: It's possible... He doesn't react negatively to the Virus... His power output is actually growing... For the most part, the body systems of X and Zero remain mysterious. I can't predict what will happen... I suggest you take measures...

Signas: Keep this secret... I'll think it over.

Lifesaver: His power is growing with the virus... It's too dangerous to keep them loose! Please... at least do something about Zero... before it's too late!

Scene 15: Destroy the Time Bombs

(Zero teleports to the beginning of the Air Force Base.)

Alia: You can get the Orbiter Wing from the Reploid Air Forces. But... I can't believe the Sigma Virus could've gotten to the Reploid Air Forces...

(If the Shuttle has already been launched)
Alia: I can't believe the Reploid Air Force has been influenced by the Sigma Virus. You don't actually need to come here. But there seem to be survivors in this area. Save them and help them escape!

(If the Enigma still hasn't been launched)
Alia: The Reploid Air Forces has also been infected by the virus... It's too dangerous, and is not worth the risk. You should leave the area as soon as possible. Wait! I'm picking up something on the sensor... There are survivors. Rescue them and help them escape!

(Zero moves forward and finds an activated time bomb.)

Alia: Darn. Someone has set the bombs! They are small, but do not underestimate their fire power... Destroy them before they detonate!

(Zero finds more time bombs and destroys them, and then comes to a steep incline.)

Alia: There are bombs above you. Climb up and destroy them!

(Zero finds more hostages and more activated time bombs.)

Alia: There are more bombs ahead of you! Dispose of them as soon as possible!

(Zero finds The Skiver behind a boss gate.)

The Skiver: I've wanted to see you, Zero... I wanted to ask you something... My thoughts always come back to the Colonel. I wanted to ask you if the battle between you two was necessary. I'm not accusing you, I just want to know, that's all. I've already been infected by the Virus... I'm destined to be retired by you once I become a Maverick, so go ahead, take me down... I want to fight you for the Colonel... That's what the Colonel would want.

Zero: I understand... But I'll fight you only because this is my mission. Now... let's do it!

(If Zero needs the Orbiter Wing)
The Skiver: Zero! I didn't want to see you in a situation such as this... Soon the Virus will take full control of me... When that happens, you'll have to retire me. So... Fight me now, Maverick Hunter... I want to fight you for the Colonel... And that's what the Colonel would want.

Zero: I understand... But I'll fight you only because it is my mission... Here I come!

(If the Colony is destroyed)
The Skiver: Iris, who is this guy? Please... ...tell me, Iris. Who is this guy?

Zero: Skiver... You've become one of the Mavericks too...? Iris is gone... I'm...

The Skiver: KILL YOU. I WILL KILL YOU!! I WON'T ALLOW YOU TO ESCAPE!

(Zero fights and defeats The Skiver, who explodes.)

Alia: You got the DNA data from the boss you have just defeated! From this DNA data, the special weapon has become yours! Equip the weapons using the L1, R1 button. Every enemy has a weak point. Find the most effective weapon for each enemy. Plus, if you defeat a high level boss, you may be able to create not only a weapon, but other items as well. In that case, please select which item you wish to create.

Alia: I didn't expect to have to fight against the Reploid Air Force again. But since most of the Reploid Force members have become Mavericks... I guess that was inevitable. Fortunately, the devices for the Shuttle were not damaged... but the Air Force was not so lucky... It won't be safe there anymore. Come back to the Hunter Base.

(If Zero didn't need the Orbiter Wing)
Alia: I didn't expect to have to fight against the Reploid Force again. Most of the Force members have become Mavericks... It was inevitable, I guess... Did you find anything useful? A device for the Shuttle... Anything is better than nothing. It won't be safe there anymore. Come back to Hunter Base.

Scene 16: Dynamo Returns

(Back at Hunter Base.)

Signas: Emergency! Dynamo has come back here to attack! What on earth does he want?! Well it doesn't matter, we have to fight him!

(Zero teleports to where Dynamo is.)

Dynamo: Nice to see you again. Did you miss me?

Zero: Stop pestering me, Dynamo! I won't allow you to escape this time!

Dynamo: You can't retire me no matter how hard you try... I'll give you a little advice... You... Sigma... Everybody is always too hot when they fight. But not me. I am the coolest and wisest of all. If you can't understand, then I'll just have to show you. Come on and fight me!

(Zero fights and defeats Dynamo.)

Dynamo: So... You ARE strong... I fought seriously this time... Anyway... I'd need nine lives if I stuck with you... So... I'll leave. No more games. You should think about your future, too or... you'll die someday... I'm getting out of here, because I don't want to die right now. Adios!

(Dynamo teleports out and Zero returns to the Base.)

Scene 17: Red-Hot World

(Zero teleports to the beginning of Mattrex's stage.)

Alia: There's a rocket Booster Engine in this lava area. Watch out for the lava and proceed with care. If you touch the lava, you'll be instantly vaporized!

(If the Shuttle has already been launched)
Alia: This is the dangerous lava area. You do not need to go to this area anymore. But if you wish to, I won't stop you. But remember, time is precious!

(If the Enigma still hasn't been launched)
Alia: This is the lava area... The lava control system has been influenced by the Virus and is malfunctioning... It is very dangerous... If you still want to go there, I won't stop you. But don't waste precious time staying there too long!

(Zero moves through the stage and comes to a short ledge.)

Alia: Wait! There's a lot of lava below us. But we have no choice but to proceed this way. The lava comes at fixed intervals, be mindful of the timing and proceed.

(Zero moves closer to the edge.)

Alia: Watch below you! It's too hot! Wait until the lava has gone, then go down.

(Zero jumps down after the lava goes down.)

Alia: Go before the next lava comes! Quick!

(Zero finds a crevice in the rock.)

Alia: Hmm... Can you see the rock over there? The temperature is lower than the other side of the rock. If you take advantage of the rock you may be able to avoid the lava. Wait behind the rock when the lava comes, then proceed with care.

(Zero reaches a door.)

Alia: Destroy the door in front of you. Then you'll be able to proceed to another area.

(Zero comes to an area where there are two ways to go.)

Alia: Well... This area is kind of like the sea of lava. The Probe Ride Armor could probably endure the heat of the lava. Our path divides... You can go this way, or you can take the other way below... If you go down, you'll have to go through the lava area. If you go this way, you'll be free from lava but... You can't proceed with the Ride Armor because a huge rock blocks the way. Which way will you choose? The decision is yours...

(If Zero goes on the upward path, he finds a dead end.)

Alia: It seems you can break the rock in front of you. Destroy it so you can move on!

(If Zero goes through the lava, he finds another Light Capsule.)

Dr. Light: This is the program for the arm part of the Gaea Armor. Analyze and upload the data to X's main memory in a secure area. Once X uploads all of the programs, the Gaea Armor will be complete. With the arm part equipped, X can attack with the Gaea shot! While the range of the Gaea shot is short, it's powerful and it can neutralize the enemies' energy bullets. Also, it allows X to break a certain brick! Please tell X that he can push or attack the bricks by dashing.

(Zero finds Mattrex behind a boss gate.)

Mattrex: Why did you come here, Zero? So, the Maverick terminator's here... Does this mean it's time for me to die?

Zero: No. I just came for the Booster Engine.

Mattrex: Ghaa ha ha! That's not all you want from me, is it, Hunter?... You want to take my life, don't you? You want to fight me, don't you?

Zero: If you insist, then I accept your challenge.

Mattrex: Bring it on, Sinister Hunter!

(If Zero doesn't need the Booster Engine)
Mattrex: Zero... You've come here to retire me, even when the Earth is about to come to an end... So you really do want to fight for as long as you live, don't you.

Zero: I'll fight you, if you want.

Mattrex: Then fight me, you Hunter scum!

(If the Colony crashed)
Mattrex: Zero... You've come here to retire me, even when the Earth is about to come to an end... You really want to fight for as long as you live, don't you.

Zero: I'll fight you, if you want.

Mattrex: Then prepare yourself, you Maverick Hunter scum!

(Zero fights and defeats Mattrex.)

Alia: You got the DNA data from the boss you have just defeated! From this DNA data, the special weapon has become yours! Equip the weapons using the L1, R1 button. Every enemy has a weak point. Find the most effective weapon for each enemy. Plus, if you defeat a high level boss, you may be able to create not only a weapon, but other items as well. In that case, please select which item you wish to create.

Alia: We've found the Booster Engine. Now the striking power of the Shuttle will be increased. There seems to be some more useful weapons lying here. But I don't think you have time to investigate. Evacuate before you get sucked into the lava!

(If Zero didn't need the Booster Engine)
Alia: We're relieved to know that the damage caused by the Virus is minimal. Also, we've found several weapons... Among other things, I'm sure the Booster Engine will be useful later on... I wonder if there is any connection between the Virus and the damage to this area...? But you have little time to investigate. Evacuate before you get sucked into the lava.

Scene 18: Into the Jungle

(Zero teleports to the beginning of Axle the Red's stage.)

Alia: The secret Reploid Forces facility that is hidden deep in the jungle has become infested with Mavericks. I bet that if you go a little deeper into the jungle from there, you'll find the Orbiter Engine.

(If the Shuttle has already been launched)
Alia: The Secret Reploid Air Forces facility hidden in the jungle... It's the core of the Jungle which has been taken over by Mavericks. Perhaps things wouldn't have been so bad had we come here earlier... I don't know why you want to come to this area, but I'll navigate for you. You may still find something worth while, anyway.

(If the Enigma still hasn't been launched)
Alia: The secret Reploid Forces facility hidden deep in the jungle... I don't know why you want to come to this area, but I'll navigate for you. You may find something useful...

(Zero comes to some blocks and vines.)

Alia: You can grab the vines with your Wire Hook... Use the vines to climb up!

(Zero comes to a pit.)

Alia: Climb down there... But watch out for that big hole below you.

(Zero moves on until he comes across another Light Capsule.)

Dr. Light: I'll give you another data program for X's armor... This is an armor prototype that I created a long, long time ago... I named it Gaea Armor. Gaea armor is for defensive ability, but is very heavy and lacks mobility. X won't be able to use weapons. Still, it will be very useful because X will be able to walk on the damaged areas... With this armor equipped, X'll be able to reach the places that he previously wasn't able to... Please tell him to use the armor wisely. By the way, have you ever wanted to have your own armor?

Zero: Never. I just trust one thing: Me. I fight my way, alone...

(Zero finds Axle the Red behind a boss gate.)

Axle the Red: Are you the one they call Zero?

Zero: That's no concern of yours. Just give me the Orbiter Engine.

Axle the Red: So, what they say about Maverick Hunters is true: Extremely pushy and threatening. They will terminate you if you stand in their way...

Zero: Hey, I don't care what you think or what you heard, but we only retire Mavericks.

Axle the Red: Mavericks, huh...? And it's up to you who gets put in that category... I heard you accused the members of the Reploid Air Force of being Mavericks... What are Mavericks, anyway...?

Zero: Wait a minute, that's not true...!

Axle the Red: I'll show you exactly what people think when they get retired...!

(If Zero doesn't need the Orbiter Engine)
Axle The Red: Excuse me, but... Are you the one they call Zero?

Zero: You don't need to know.

Axle The Red: You are a Maverick Hunter, right? Tell me what will happen to the Earth! It seems the Earth is in very serious trouble.

Zero: ............

Axle The Red: When you die, you will meet all of the Reploids you have retired. Then you will know what they felt when they were retired... What you did to them... In fact, I'm going to expedite your journey... and show you myself... Prepare to be retired, Hunter!

(Zero fights and defeats Axle the Red, who explodes.)

Alia: You got the DNA data from the boss you have just defeated! From this DNA data, the special weapon has become yours! Equip the weapons using the L1, R1 button. Every enemy has a weak point. Find the most effective weapon for each enemy. Plus, if you defeat a high level boss, you may be able to create not only a weapon, but other items as well. In that case, please select which item you wish to create.

Alia: The Sigma Virus even destroys nature... There is nothing in nature now which is completely free from mechanical devices. We've found the Orbiter Engine. It's out in the jungle... Another Hunter will be there soon to pick it up. Your mission is complete. Return to the Base.

(If Zero didn't need the Orbiter Engine)
Alia: The Sigma Virus destroys even nature... Nothing in nature is completely free from mechanical devices anymore... Oh, it seems that a Hunter unit has arrived there. They reported to me that they've found the Orbiter Engine. Unfortunately, it doesn't work for the Enigma... We have no time to lose... Return to the Base immediately.

Scene 19: Before the Launch

*Note: This scene only occurs if all the Space Shuttle parts were collected, but the Shuttle has not been launched yet.

X5 scene06

Douglas: We've completed the Space Shuttle... It's ready to launch at anytime. Still... The problem is...who will maneuver it... It's awkward having this kind of problem at the very end. Everything else is taken care of. The Shuttle is ready... Let me know once you've dealt with the pilot issue.

Scene 20: The Shuttle Launch

Douglas: The Space Shuttle. Stand-by!

Signas: I trust you... Zero. I'm sorry I couldn't do more for you...

Zero: Don't mention it! This is my mission. I'm the only pilot left, you know.

X5 scene07

X: Zero, I'll do it instead of you!

Zero: X, you should stay here. Who else will protect the Earth?

X: Don't talk as if you won't be back!

Zero: I'm sure I'll be back! I won't die on such an easy mission. When I become a Maverick... I think that's when I'll have died.

X: OK, Zero! I'll be waiting for you... ... you'd better come back alive!

Launch

Alia: It's about time... Zero...

Zero: OK! I'm ready!

If the Shuttle is Successful

Signas: Ready, Zero? This is our last chance! Blast-off!!!

X: Zero! Be sure to come back safely... Zero! Zero! Zero!!

Alia: Zero, the colony is approaching... Go!

Douglas: I'm sure it'll work this time!

X: Zero will make it and get out okay!

X5 scene08

Zero: Locking on to the Space Colony. I'll get as close to it as possible, then I'll abandon the Shuttle. I saw lots of debris from the Colony around here... I have to pilot the Shuttle around the debris... Otherwise the Shuttle will be destroyed before it crashes into the "Eurasia" Colony.

Douglas: Zero! I believe you can do it!

Zero: Thanks, Douglas... It's time to go... I'll cut the communication in 5 seconds and get out of here!

X: Good luck, Zero!

Crash

Signas: Good luck, Zero!

Alia: 7 seconds to impact. 5...4...3...2... ... it crashed into the Colony! ...... Destruction of the Colony is... ... 86%! It will be gone within 10 minutes! ... We've succeeded in destroying the Colony! ...Zero? Can you read me?

X5 scene09

Douglas: ...Zero!

ZeroReturns

Signas: ...Zero! Can you read me?

X: ...I feel... I feel Zero!

???: ...Ga ga ga...

Zero: ...This is Zero... Do you hear me? ... I managed to... survive...

Alia: We've got a response from Zero!

X: Zeroooo! Are you all right?

Zero: It was challenging, but I'm OK... Everything is fine! I think I can make it back to Earth.

Alia: We'll get you from wherever you fall... Until then, try to get some rest. It won't be easy, though...

Narrator: After a few hours...

Lifesaver: We've found Zero. He's safe but he's very exhausted. We'll return to the Hunter Base now...

Alia: Wait! What is this reading? ...This is exactly the same reading... ...Should we call this the Zero Virus? The scraps of the Colony Virus and the Sigma Virus combined together...? ...I wonder what's going to happen...

If the Shuttle is Unsuccessful (Zero did return to his true-self)

Signas: Ready, Zero? This is our last chance! Blast-off!!!

X: Zero! Be sure to come back safely... Zero! Zero! Zero!!

Alia: The Shuttle crashed into the Colony!

X5 scene10

X: Zeroooo!

Signas: Did we make it? Did it crash?

Douglas: We did everything we could to strengthen the Shuttle... Everything...

Alia: The destruction rate is...54%... The Colony won't be destroyed... Our mission has failed... Zero! Do you read me?

X: Zerooo! Are you all right? Zerooo!

Signas: No! He'll be sucked into the Colony...

Douglas: Get away! Hurry, Zero!

X5 scene11

Alia: The speed of the Colony is increasing! It's too dangerous to stay here any longer. We better get away!

X: No way! What about Zero? He doesn't know yet! Are you going to sacrifice him, a soldier who fought to save the Earth and all of us?! Do we have to let my one and only friend, my BEST friend, die?!

Signas: I understand how you feel, but you need to calm down and think straight. If we stay here we will be wiped out... Then who will protect the Earth? Who will rescue Zero?

Signas: Everyone, evacuate immediately!

X: Zero! I promise I will rescue you! Until then, please hang in there!!

(Eurasia collides with the Earth.)

Narrator: The colony crashed into the Earth... ...The Earth barely avoided extinction. ...The damage was immeasurable...

X5 scene12

Signas: ... ... ... Anybody...who can hear my voice... Please answer me...

Alia: I'm here...Signas... I barely hear you...

Signas: Alia...Are you all right? Can you give me an update?

Alia: The Earth... avoided the worst situation... I don't have any other information...

Douglas: I'm...all right, too...

Signas: How about X... and Zero...

Alia: There is no reading on them...but... They're...alive... I believe...

Signas: It's unusual for you to say that... ...without any data...

Alia: ......... The reading of the Sigma Virus has also disappeared... I don't know why... ...but I think it's lucky... ...Wait! Wh-what is this reading?!

???: ...Get up... ...Wake up now... ...Do you forget... what you should do? ...Destroy it now... ...You can do it! ...You're the best of all my works... ...Wake up...

Alia: It's an incredibly strong energy... ...Ze... Zero? Are you Zero?

Signas: ...What's up? Alia!

Alia: I got a reading that looked like Zero...

Signas: ...You mean, Zero is alive?

Alia: It's like Zero, but not him exactly... ...What is this reading?

X: It's Zero... I know it is...

X5 scene14

(Zero is seen on a precipice of rock, glowing purple.)

X: ...Zero is my friend and yet... can this really be him? If it is him, then I guess I never really knew him at all... Can it be that Zero is finally discovering his true self?

Signas: What's going on?

Alia: Zero, Zero is...

X: Zero...

Zero: You're...you're X... ...I will destroy you...

X: ............ ...What are you talking about...? ...What's up... Why do you... .......... ...wait... ... I don't know... exactly why... ...but I know what you are thinking... ...You told me once before, right? "There are things that cannot be seen or analyzed correctly as data." ...We have to feel... There are things that we can only feel......I feel it very strongly...now... ...All right... ...I'll accept your challenge... ...This is our destiny, isn't it? ...I will fight! I won't run away!

If Time Runs Out

(If all 16 hours have run out, and the Enigma and the Shuttle have not been launched yet, Signas, Alia, and Douglas meet at Hunter Base.)

Signas: No! None of our operations worked!

Alia: Estimated 31 minutes until the collision. Ground zero is 5646 points in E block. Tidal waves and earthquakes are already breaking out in various places! We have to evacuate immediately!

Signas: Everyone in the Hunter Base: Evacuate to the underground shelter! Move out! I repeat! Evacuate now to the underground shelter!

Alia: X and Zero are missing...

EurasiaFall

Signas: What?! What are they doing at a time like this...?! Blast! ... Maybe they can survive on their own...

(The Eurasia's speed increases.)

Douglas: What are you waiting for?! Hurry up, let's go!

Signas: Yeah. Alia, Douglas! Move now! ...Where did they go...? Well, I just hope they're safe,... ... wherever they are...

(Eurasia collides with the Earth.)

EurasiaCrash

Narrator: In spite of the Maverick Hunters... The Colony crashed into the Earth... Fortunately, the Earth narrowly managed to avoid extinction... A few hours after the collision...

Signas: Alia... Give me an update!

Alia: I can't tell exactly because the signal is being jammed... I'm sure the results are devastating...

Signas: Are there any survivors?

Alia: I've caught some readings, but they're very weak... I'm not sure if they are alive or not... But the data reading of the Sigma Virus has gone... ............ Wait! What's that?!

(Zero is seen on a precipice of rock, glowing purple.)

X5 scene15

X: ...Zero is my friend and yet... can this really be him? If it is him, then I guess I never really knew him at all... Can it be that Zero is finally discovering his true self?

Signas: What's going on?

Alia: Zero, Zero is...

X: Zero...

Zero: You're...you're X... ...I will destroy you...

X: ............ ...What are you talking about...? ...What's up... Why do you... .......... ...wait... ... I don't know... exactly why... ...but I know what you are thinking... ...You told me once before, right? "There are things that cannot be seen or analyzed correctly as data." ...We have to feel... There are things that we can only feel......I feel it very strongly...now... ...All right... ...I'll accept your challenge... ...This is our destiny, isn't it? ...I will fight! I won't run away!

Scene 21: Aftermath

If the Enigma/Shuttle was Successful (Normal Zero)

Alia: A new virus...? Out of the frying pan into the fire... For the moment, we've named it the Zero Virus... I'm reading a strong energy reaction from point 11F5646! We may be able to solve the mystery of the Zero Virus... But it's very risky... What should we do? I know we can't escape... so we'll just have to fight it! Go for it! We must bring this to an end once and for all!

If the Enigma/Shuttle was Unsuccessful (True Zero)

Signas: The Earth lies in ruins, a mere shadow of the great planet it once was... ...The Human race narrowly avoided extinction once... and is about to face destruction again...

Alia: I'm reading a strong energy reaction from point 11F5646! What's happening now?! It's too dangerous! NO! Don't go!

Scene 22: Destiny's Battle

*Note: To see what happens in this scene if Zero goes Maverick, see X's storyline.)

(Zero finds another Light Capsule in the third fortress stage.)

Dr. Light: Zero... I wasn't able to create any armor for you... But I seem to be able to enhance your abilities...

Zero: No. I don't need any enhancements...

Dr. Light: I see... Whether you enter this capsule or not, The decision is up to you. But if you enter, the Z saver will be enhanced, and your defense power will be increased... I believe in you. You will use these powers in the right way to fight evil. Decide...and choose your fate.

Zero: ............

(Zero chooses whether or not to take the Black Armor, then continues on until he finds X and two Lifesavers waiting inside a room.)

Zero: X...Lifesaver...Why are you here?

Lifesaver: Look...! Just as we expected...The Virus is everywhere, and yet he is not infected at all. He must've already become a Maverick!

X: No! Don't, Lifesaver! You are jumping to conclusions! Still...I agree with you that Zero might be a danger.

Zero: What are you talking about, X...? You don't mean it, do you?

X: .........I do, Zero...I came here because I'm really worried about you...I'll fight for you, Zero. You are tired, aren't you? Go back to the base and get a complete physical check!

Zero: Wait! What if you are the one who has become a Maverick...? YOU go back to the base! I can handle this mission. It's stupid to endanger both of us.

X: Zero, I can't allow you to handle this mission anymore... Don't make me force you to go back!

Zero: So you're serious, then...I can't believe this... I had hoped it would never come to this, that we wouldn't have to fight over such a trivial matter, but so be it... Prepare to lose, X!

(X transforms into his Ultimate Armor and battles Zero. Zero eventually defeats him.)

Zero: Ooooh...I thought...I thought I won... I never expected you to attack with the Soul Body... Impressive...X...Cough...

Scene 23: Two Warriors

If Zero did not awaken his true-self

(Both X and Zero lie wounded severely.)

X5 scene16

Zero: ...Uh, Ugh... ...X, X...

X: .........

Zero: .........

(A familiar figure appears behind X.)

X5 scene17

???: ... Ha ha ha... ...You've done very well, X... I will make your end easy!!

(The figure fires at the unconscious X, but Zero jumps in front of it and blocks the blast.)

Zero: ...No, I won't allow you to! I know everything you're trying to do!

???: Wha, what?! You pitiful fool!

Zero: ...No! I won't allow you to!!

(The figure fires again, but Zero blocks it.)

ZeroVSSigma

Zero: Haa... Haa... ...You're as ... persistent... as ever...Sigma!

Sigma: Blast! I haven't completed you... I will retreat for now... Somehow I know you two will come again. I'll be waiting for you, ha ha ha...

Zero: Wait! Sigmaaaa! ...I WILL defeat you ... without fail!!

If Zero did awaken to his true-self

(Both X and Zero lie wounded severely.)

Zero: ...Uh, Ugh... ...X, X...

X: .........

Zero: .........

(A familiar figure appears behind X.)

???: ... Ha ha ha... ...You've done very well, X... I will make your end easy!!

ZeroSacrifice

(The figure fires at the unconscious X, but Zero jumps in front of it and blocks the blast.)

Zero: ...No, I won't allow you to! I know everything you're trying to do!

???: Then, be a good boy and just die!

(Zero is hit with the blast intended for X.)

Zero: ...Uh, Uwaaaaa! ...X...X... Please survive...! ...Survive! X... Live...for...me...

X5 scene18

(X and Zero both lay on the ground, with Sigma hovering over them.)

Sigma: You'd almost fully evolved to your true self... It's a shame you didn't quite make it, Zero. You had so much potential. Oh well, farewell! Well...it's only you now, X... I will let you live this time. But I won't be so kind next time, and there WILL be a next time! See you soon! You... The strongest Reploid! Bwah ha ha!

X: ......... ... I'm... losing my strength... and... ... energy... I... can't... see any... thing... ... Ze... Zero... Don't... leave... Please... stand... by... me... ... I'll... protect... you... Zero...

(Sigma leaves X alone with Zero's lifeless body.)

Scene 24: In Your Hands

(Back at the Hunter Base.)

Alia: I'm getting a stronger energy reaction from point 11F5646! The energy is too strong to get an accurate data sample. I must be reading Sigma... I can't think of anyone but Sigma! Sigma is behind all of this... I won't stop you from going to fight anymore...I leave everything in your hands...

Scene 25: Duel With Sigma

(Zero finds Sigma behind a boss gate.)

Sigma: Hee hee hee hee. Impressive... The Number One Reploid, you are... you came much earlier than I expected.

Zero: I'll finish this battle once and for all...

Sigma: Zero... I'll ask you one more time. Don't you want to acquire the power of your true self?

Zero: Ha! I have my true powers...

Sigma: I met an old man who knows a lot about you... He told me an interesting story. He told me that you are something far greater than what you appear to be... On his advice, I scattered the Virus so that it could infiltrate you, but you haven't shown any signs of waking up...

Zero: I won't become a Maverick! I won't yield to your pitiful virus!

Sigma: Hee hee hee. You don't seem to understand. I'm not talking about becoming a Maverick. You felt it, didn't you. You felt a tremendous power fill your body... A power from the Virus. That is because the Virus purifies your body.

Zero: Shut up!

Sigma: You can destroy me, but death is all that awaits you, too... Embrace your true self now, or forever be lost. Wake up, Zero!

Zero: I'm not afraid to die... But I won't die alone...

Sigma: Ha! Pathetic fool...so be it!

(Zero fights Sigma's first form, defeating him. The screen fades to black.)

Sigma: Hee hee hee. The number one Hunter you are. Zero...Tell me... Which one of you is stronger, X or Zero?

Zero: Who cares... Where are you, Sigma?! Face me!

(Sigma reappears in a huge battle body.)

Sigma: Hee hee hee hee. Calm down. I'm here... Let me tell you about an old man I met... He told me that you are the strongest in the universe... Tell me. Who is this old man?

Zero: How should I know? I don't know such a person.

Sigma: You must know him. Don't tell me you've never met him in your dreams.

Zero: I don't...know him...

Sigma: He seems very interested in you,...as if he was your own father!

Zero: Shut up! Enough! I won't allow you to escape this time, Sigma!

(Zero fights Sigma's next form, eventually defeating it as well.)

Sigma: Gwaaaaaaaa! Darn... But I'll never...die alone! I'll take... you...down with me!

Zero: You've lost. What can you do now?

Sigma: Gha ha ha ha ha! X seems to be somewhere close... The three of us can die together... You won't feel lonely if X is with you...

Zero: No! Leave X out of this!

Sigma: Time to go! Say goodbye, Zero! Ghaa ha ha ha ha ha!!

(Sigma explodes.)

Training Mode Script

Script from Mega Man X5 of Zero going through the Training Area at Maverick Hunter HQ.

Alia: Let's begin the training. Are you ready, Zero? I'll navigate you as you are a novice Maverick Hunter.

Alia: Enemy ahead of you! With your Z Buster, you can attack them from a distance. But your main weapon is the Z Saber. Press the Attack button repeatedly, then you can preform very powerful actions. If you want to cancel a combination attack, just jump or crouch.

Alia: Enemy in the hole underground. You can attack the enemy with your saber, but there's some risk, because you have to get close to them... In this situation, take advantage of the terrain, ignore the enemy, and jump over it. You can adjust how far you jump by how long you press the Jump button...

Alia: Your enemy is in a difficult place to attack, but that is common in real life situations. Watch the timing of their attack, get close at a blast and attack! After you land, you can preform combination attacks!

Alia: Giant enemy ahead of you. This type of enemy doesn't move, and specializes in durability. Pay attention to the attack pattern, get close, then attack and run! Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee! The special moves you have learned will also be very useful.

Alia: High wall without any ladder. Jump to the wall, and if you touch the wall, then jump again! You can climb the wall by kicking it. Keep jumping from the wall and climb to the top.

Alia: Can you see the yellow rope in front of you? Jump to it, and when you touch it, press the Directional button UP. Then you can grab and hang on the rope.

Alia: Watch the floor in front of you... Can you see the spiked trap? Don't touch, no matter what... Or you will die on the spot. In cases like this, do a dash-jump! If you jump while dashing, you can jump farther.

Alia: Go through the shutter. There you will encounter the boss of the Training Area. I have emulated the Dragoon for your training. Don't rush to attack him. Fight wisely by using the "Attack and Run" strategy... You must fight against heavy odds using your saber... Because you can use your Z Buster only when you are on the ground. This is the final stage of training... Good luck, Zero.

(After Zero has completed training, he can now start the storyline of the game.)
