Scene 1: Awakening
Mick: Well, how's that lock coming?
Robin: This is one tough nut to crack... but I'm almost there. Yes! Got it! We're in.
(They enter the room and see lots of old machinery.)
Mick: ...Not again! It looks like this isn't it either. I was hoping we'd find it on the first try, and show it off to the guys back at Hunter's Camp.
(Robin walks deeper into the room and sees a strange capsule. A form is visible inside.)
Robin: Hey! There's something in there!
(Mick and Robin run towards it.)
Robin: What the...!?
(An unknown Reploid is in stasis inside the capsule.)
Mick: ...A Reploid kid? No way! What's it doing here?
(Mick walks closer to it.)
Robin: Hey, don't touch it! If you trip the security, we'll have Mechaniloids crawling all over us.
(An alarm rings and a group of security Galleons run into the room. The two sides fire at each other, and Robin is hit, throwing him against the side of the capsule, which starts to crack. The capsule's alarm rings as it starts to unlatch. Scene cuts to after the battle to see the capsule open and the Reploid inside fall out. He shakily stands up and gasps as he sees the bodies of Mick, Robin, and the Galleons.)
???: What the!? W-what... happened? Where am I? Who am I? Hnnngnn! I can't remember anything...
(A female Reploid teleports in.)
???: W-Who are you!?
Pandora: I... am Pandora. Grey... I'm here to dispose of you...
Grey: Grey? Is that my name? What do you mean dispose of me!?
Pandora: You... are like me... A Mega Man... But you were awakened... before the mind control sequence was completed...
Grey: Mega Man? Mind control!? What have you done to me!?
(Pandora fires a bolt of electricity at Grey, who is thrown back near the body of one of the Hunters.)
Pandora: Defectives must be disposed of...
Grey: I don't think this guy will be needing his weapon anymore... Aaaaagh!
(Grey grabs a gun from one of the fallen Hunters and fires at Pandora, who deflects it while Grey bolts out of the room.)
Grey: *pant*... *pant*...! Why did she call me defective!? Anyway, I have to find a way out of here before they kill me!
(Grey continues on until he comes to a long bridge with a giant Mechaniloid guarding it. He eventually destroys the Mechaniloid with only the Hunter's gun, but the bridge suddenly collapses.)
(Grey and the Mechaniloid's remains plummet down the waterfall and the scene fades out.)
Scene 2: Hunters Camp
(Grey wakes up on a bed inside a room.)
Grey: Mmmwwaaa! Huh...? Where am I?
(A Hunter named Billy enters the room. Grey, startled, pulls out his gun and aims it at Billy.)
Billy: Whoa! Hey, let's just calm down, OK!?
Grey: Are you here to kill me!?
Billy: I'm the one who found you outside the camp! Put down your weapon! I'm not going to hurt you!
(Grey reluctantly puts the gun away.)
Grey: You... helped me?
Billy: Yeah, don't mention it. What's your name? And what the heck happened to you?
Grey: Grey... at least, that's what she called me anyway. When I woke up, I was in some kind of building... And there was a woman... She said her name was Pandora. Right before she tried to kill me. I ran... Everything after that is a blur.
Billy: Well, there must be some reason you can't remember... Don't let it get you down. It'll all come back to you. This is Hunter's Camp, a gathering place for bounty Hunters. They're a pretty rowdy bunch, but they're all good people. It's good to have guys like them around. Hey, you haven't had a chance to see the camp yet. OK, exit this room and meet me at the transerver next door. There's something I wanna show you.
(Billy starts to leave.)
Grey: Uh... Umm...!
(Billy stops and turns back to Grey.)
Grey: ...Uh, thank you for saving me...
Billy: *smile* Like I said, don't mention it. I'm sure you would have done the same for me.
(Billy exits. Grey follows until they reach the transerver.)
Billy: That machine's called a transerver. You can use it to save data. Go ahead, get up there and press up on the +Control Pad.
(Grey gets on the transerver and receives a Hunter's License after saving the data.)
Grey: A Hunter's License? I don't get it...
Billy: By accessing the server, you've been officially registered as a Hunter. There are transervers spread out all over the place. When you find one, be sure to save, and save often!
Grey: Wait a minute! I never said that I wanted to be a Hunter...!
Billy: Just keep it. There are a lot of illegal Hunters, Raiders and such out there. You can't get into Hunter's Camp without your Hunter's License. Take a good look around later on. Oh, by the way! Do you wanna help me with a mission?
Grey: A mission?
Billy: Job requests we Hunters get now and then. You get paid when you carry out a job successfully. Hey, it's a living. Anyway, I've got to get ready for the mission, so I'll be at the station. Give me a holler when you're ready to go.
(Billy walks away.)
Scene 3: Model A
(Grey walks around the camp, talking to some of the inhabitants there. He eventually makes his way to the train station and sees Billy waiting for him.)
Billy: For this mission, we have to take this container to Legion Headquarters.
Grey: Legion...? I guess I've got a lot to learn.
Billy: ...Man, you must've bumped your head pretty hard... Let's roll out!
(Grey jumps onto the train next to Billy and the strange container. The trains starts to move out.)
Billy: Legion is the coalition government created after the war several centuries ago, by representatives from every nation. It makes laws that govern the lives of Humans and Reploids. Basically, it's the most powerful organization on Earth. I bet the Legion database has info about you too. That's why I invited you to come along.
Grey: Isn't using a train for just one container overdoing it a little?
Billy: The stuff in that container is called Biometal. It's very rare and very valuable. We recovered it from some Raiders who pillaged it from ancient ruins. Legion pays huge bounties for Biometal. So, there's a reason we overdo it.
Grey: Hmm, Biometal... Why does that sound familiar?
(A voice is heard from inside the container.)
???: Does he know about me...?
(Grey whirls around.)
Grey: Who said that!?
???: Hm? You can hear me!?
(Grey looks around, but sees nothing.)
Grey: What? Who's there...?
Billy: Dang! Mavericks!
(Billy fires at one Maverick and destroys it.)
Billy: They're going for the engine! You wait here!
(Billy runs towards the engine room. Pandora and another Reploid teleport in.)
Pandora: There you are... Defective Mega Man...
??? (male): Pandora, you couldn't dispose of this one measly imp?
Pandora: My apologies, Prometheus.
Prometheus: No matter. We'll finish him off and take back the Biometal.
Grey: I've had it! Do you think I'm just going to sit here and let you two kill me when I don't even know why!?
(Prometheus slashes at Grey, injuring him and damaging the Biometal's container.)
Prometheus: Just lay there and die quietly, scum.
Grey: No way! I'm... I'm...
???: Hey! Grey! If you want to live, do as I say. Since you can hear me, we should be able to Megamerge! I'll lend you my strength!
Grey: W-Who are you?
Model A: I'm Biometal Model A! Now I want you to focus. OK, yell, "MEGAMERGE!" as loud as you can!
(Grey struggles to stand up.)
Model A: Biolink Established! M.E.G.A. System Online!
(Grey starts to glow as a new armor forms around him. Prometheus's eyes widen for a moment as he watches, then grins insanely.)
Grey: This power coursing through me... What is it? I feel like I know this power... This is Mega Man power!
Pandora: Mega Man... Model A!
Prometheus: *guffaw* Well, isn't this a surprise! Our Defective just Megamerged! I've got to hand it to you. It looks like you've got what it takes to participate in this little game.
Pandora: Prometheus... Isn't that kid...?
Prometheus: Hmph, no matter! So Grey... You can keep the Model A, for now. You've got a few more encounters with other Mega Men ahead of you. You must defeat them in battle! If you somehow manage to survive until the end, then you'll known who you really are... And perhaps all there is to know about the world! So, let the game begin! HIS Game of Destiny!
(Prometheus and Pandora teleport out.)
Grey: Game of Destiny? What's up with them...?
(The train starts to shake.)
Grey: Oh, shoot! I have to help the others!
Model A: Wait a minute! Shouldn't we be getting out of here!?
Grey: If you don't want to come, transform me back to normal, and I'll go by myself!
Model A: OK, OK, I'll go! Anything is better than what those guys were going to do to me! I'll help you... if you promise not to leave me. Deal?
Grey: ...OK! Let's go!
(Grey fights through the Mavericks on the train until he approaches the engine room.)
???: *snort* *wheeze*!
(A gazelle-like Reploid bursts out of the roof of one train car.)
???: Model A! You broke rule! You make big mistake. The one you choose, no good! He Defective! You lend him your power, no good!
Model A: Mistake? What're you yapping about? You don't know me!
Grey: Who's this!? He's different from the other Mavericks...
Buckfire: Me not Maverick! Me Pseudoroid. Me Buckfire! You get away from Prometheus and Pandora, but not from I! Buckfire obey rule! Buckfire will pummel you into ground!
(Grey fights Buckfire and eventually defeats him.)
Buckfire: You!... traitor... Our future... Our world...! Yeeeoooow!!
(Buckfire explodes and some DNA is left behind. Grey absorbs the DNA as the train slows and comes to a stop.)
Grey: W-What just happened?
Model A: *chuckle* Do you want to see something cool? Touch the icon on the bottom screen!
(Grey does so and suddenly transforms into Buckfire.)
Model A: This is my power, A-Trans! I can morph into anyone whose DNA I copy! Hey, try pressing up on the +Control Pad while holding down the Attack Button and then release it. You can use this move to break objects above you. It's a bit advanced, but I'm sure it will come in handy! And here's another great trick! Hold down and release the Attack button while in mid-air, to kick down towards the ground. With this move you can break objects below you. Why don't you try these moves on the two objects in here? If you want to review them, just press the START and open the sub-screen. Take a look in the Profile section. There you will find detailed explanations of other moves as well. Touch the icon on the bottom screen again, and I can change back!
(Grey changes back.)
Grey: Is that power why everyone wants Biometal so bad?
Model A: Beats me. I'm not even sure why I was created. This train is all out of chug. So, let's head back to the camp and figure another way to get to Legion Headquarters.
Grey: Are you going to help me!?
Model A: Well, it's that or you'll leave me here, right? Besides, we've got goons after us, and we don't know why. It's better for the both of us that we work together!
Grey: Thank you! First we have to help the people who are injured!
Model A: What? Forget about those Hunters and let's get back to camp.
Grey: No way! I'm not leaving them! If you don't want to come, I can go by...
Model A: OK, OK, alright already! For crying out loud! Why did you have to be the only one around I could Megamerge with?
Scene 4: Around the Camp
(Grey and Billy meet outside the train station in Hunter's Camp.)
Billy: ...Thanks, you hold on to Model A. That's probably safer. But, I need you to go to the transerver and send a mission report. No mission report for the client, no bounty. Say, we're trying to fix the train, but we need a few more parts. Tell 'em we won't let 'em down, and to wait just a little longer.
(Billy goes back into the train station. Grey walks around the camp, talking to some of the inhabitants there.)
(Grey sees a Reploid working at a small information booth.)
Nina: I'm Nina. I work the station information desk. You can ask me anything about the station and the surrounding area. To get to the train, go out that door and go right.
(Grey approaches a tall Reploid standing outside a building.)
Jarke: Hey, nice to meet you! My name is Jarke! If you're going to Legion, you should enter the door on the right! You know, yesterday I took the train to Legion. The desolate landscape outside of Hunter's Camp looks pretty dreary. It's a far cry from the bustling cityscape of Legion.
(Grey visits the group of guards stationed on top of one building.)
Abe: I'm Abe. Glad to meet you!
Kyrian: I'm Kyrian. Nice to meet you!
Tim: My name is Tim. I may not look it, but I've been a Hunter for a long time!
Roger: My name is Roger.
Ben: My name is Ben! Lately, you've been the talk of Hunter's Camp!
Chuck: Yo! My name is Chuck!
Kirk: My name is Kirk. I'm a Hunter just like you!
Doug: My name is Doug.
George: My name is George. As you can see, I'm a Hunter. Now I'm waiting for energy stores to arrive. We're expecting 3 units.
(Grey enters another building and sees a Reploid excavating a new hallway.)
Kidd: Yo! Are you a Hunter too? My name is Kidd! We've been drilling here, trying to find some lost technology or something. It takes a heckuva lotta energy just to run the drill. It ain't worth it, in my opinion! But we found this place that looks like it was used as a room, buried underneath the earth and sand. We can't give up cause there could be something down there.
Kidd (second time): There's no way around it. To keep digging, I'm going to need another 100 EC... Help with a donation?
- (If not enough EC)
Kidd: I'm glad you want to help, but that's just not enough EC.
Kidd: Thank you! With this, I should be able to make this passageway a little bit wider!
(Grey exits the building and sees a masked Reploid standing there.)
Pierre: Who are you? They call me Pierre. I dunno where you're trying to get to, but there ain't nothing thataway. If you're trying to get to the station, it's in the opposite direction.
(Grey enters what looks like a restaurant and talks to the Reploid in charge.)
Jim: Hey, I didn't know kids liked to drink coffee. I'm Jim, and this is my cafe. I used to make my living as a Hunter, but I wasn't very good with directions, you know. I realized that it just wasn't for me and got out.
Jim (second time): I started this place hoping it'd be somewhere the Hunters could relax and enjoy themselves. I'm still learning the ropes of the business. And, making a lot of mistakes too.
(Grey talks to one of the restaurant customers.)
Ward: So you're a Hunter too, huh... Boy, there's just no shortage of new recruits lately. The name's Ward... Pleased to meet you! I put bounties out on the Mechaniloids that show up around here, and I make the payouts to those Hunters who have the right stuff. If you think you've got the right stuff, you should take a crack at it.
Ward (second time): Recently there've been some sightings of wild Mechaniloids near Hunter's Camp.
(Grey talks to another customer, Elena.)
Elena: What are you looking at? Do I have something on my face? You must be 12 going on 20 if you think you can talk to me! Remember that for the next time we meet!
Elena (second time): Don't get so close to me! You're crowding my space! Did I not just warn you about that kind of thing? I don't want you breathing down my neck. I'm an elite Hunter!
(Grey exits the cafe and sees a nurse Reploid standing outside.)
Anna: Well, are you feeling any better? I'm Anna. I give Hunters medical attention in the infirmary. The transerver isn't here, it's in room 04. To enter the door in the back room, stand in front of it and push up on the +Control Pad! You can also push up on the +Control Pad to examine items or talk to someone!
(Grey enters a computer database room and talks to the Reploid there.)
Gary: I'm Gary, the Data Room Administrator. If you get your hands on something called a Secret Disk, you should bring it back here for analysis. It contains information about enemies, etc. View the database?
(If Yes, Grey is shown files on various characters, bosses, and enemies.)
(Grey climbs up to a hidden alcove above a wall and sees a young Reploid sitting there.)
Chris: Who are you? They call me Chris! I'm a real Hunter, make no mistake about it! But what I really want more than some lost technology is some toys! My dad says that a Hunter needs to be tough. So I tried to get to the top of the ridge to test my toughness. But, it was a lot scarier than I thought. The view IS nice from up here... I think I'll make this my secret place.
(Grey sees a short Reploid walking around the camp grounds.)
Ray: Whoa... you don't see many people around here dressed like that. Are you supposed to be a new comic superhero or something? ... I get it, you haven't come up with a name for yourself yet... That's cool. My name is Ray. I collect old comic books. It's one of my hobbies. That's why the other Hunters call me the Comic Hunter. But I'm not really all THAT. *blush*
(Grey sees a blond-haired Reploid.)
Tina: I'm Tina! I used to run with a group of bandits! Don't worry, it's all in my past. Now I make an honest living as a Hunter.
(Grey goes through a door to another area of the Camp and sees an overweight Reploid sitting on the ground.)
Owl: *munch munch munch* Mnh? Who are you? Can't you see I'm eating? Would you mind not talking to me right now? Eh? My name? ...It's Owl. What about it?
(Grey climbs a ladder and sees a tall Reploid with a little girl sitting on his shoulder.)
Blossom: Hello! Is this the first time we've met? My name is Blossom! And this is my daddy!
Blossom: Oh, my daddy's name is Warren!
(Grey sees a Hunter standing next to a locked door.)
Richard: When it comes to skills with a Buster, there's nobody in Hunter's Camp even close to me. I could care less if you're supposed to be some Mega Man or whatever. All I know is, you ain't even in my league. If you don't believe me, just go to the Firing Range up ahead and challenge my record. I'll even give you this room key. Give the key back when you're finished though! As a matter of fact, I'll pay you 100 EC if you beat my record!
Scene 5: The Sage Trinity
(Grey returns to the transerver to save data when he receives a call.)
???: So, you're the one who submitted the mission report? I'm connecting your transerver to Legion's via a secure channel.
???: So, you're the Biometal's Chosen One... a Mega Man.
Grey: ...Who are you dudes?
???: *chuckle* "You dudes," huh? I guess you really have lost your memory.
???: Go easy on him, Mikhail. He doesn't know any better.
Mikhail: And I'm Master Mikhail, nice to meet you, Mega Man.
Albert: And I am Master Albert. How do you do, Grey?
Grey: How do you know my name? Have we met before!?
Thomas: Calm down. We know about you from the Hunters' report. We're running your file through the Legion database now.
Mikhail: We'll soon know who you really are. Meanwhile, so you're not just sitting around waiting, we have a mission for you. We'd like you to bring the Biometal directly to us.
(Grey receives a Red Card Key.)
Albert: It seems the train bound for Legion Headquarters was damaged. That card key should allow you access to a new area. There's a crashed Raider airship not far from you. Find it and you should be able to get the parts you need to repair the train.
Thomas: The Biometal holds technology and information that we don't fully understand, like the M.E.G.A. mechanism which allows you to Megamerge and become a Mega Man.
Mikhail: And not to mention centuries worth of lost history!
Albert: That's enough, Mikhail. ...We have a duty to study the Biometal so its secrets are never misused. Grey, can we count on you?
Grey: So, if I go to Legion, you'll tell me about Model A?
Thomas: That is correct. First, head for the crash site. Dangers abound, so give heed to the directions of your fellow Hunters.
Scene 6: Tower of Verdure
(Grey enters a large tower completely overgrown by vines. Eventually he goes through a door and an alarm goes off.
Security: ALERT! ALERT! SECURITY SYSTEM MALFUNCTION! ALERT CONDITION 3 IN EFFECT! SEAL ALL EXITS!
(All other doors in the room seal closed.)
Model A: Y-Yo this isn't good!
(Grey tries to go back out through the door he came in.)
Grey: It's no use, the doors are locked! We can't get out!
Albert: This is Albert! Are you alright, Grey? That old tower was built to surveil the surrounding area. The security has been fortified against Mavericks, but there seems to be a malfunction. There should be a computer at the top that controls the security system. You must get there and disarm the system, Grey.
(Grey continues fighting through the area until he finds a strange plantlike Reploid harassing a Raider named Gerry.)
???: For a Raider to make it this far is quite something... *evil laugh* I like you! Accept my thorny embrace and allow your soul to be scattered like petals on the breeze!
Gerry: Aargh! S-Stay away from me!
(The Reploid turns around in and sees Grey.)
???: Like honeybees, one by one they are drawn to my nectar. You're quite a handsome boy. I like you.
(Gerry bolts through a door on the other side of the room.)
Grey: So, you're the one who caused the security system to malfunction!
???: I'm planting a seed! A seed that will lay the foundation for the new world and the new king! It grows by feeding on the fear of those unfortunate enough to wander into this tower.
(The Reploid suddenly transforms into a flower-based Pseudoroid and climbs up one of the vines.)
Rospark: I am Rospark. Come and cry in my bosom. Cry out in terror and pain!
(Grey fights and defeats Rospark.)
Rospark: I underestimated you! I had no idea your power was so fiery...! I'm wilting... wilting! Yeeeargh!
(Rospark explodes, leaving behind some DNA. Grey absorbs the DNA and continues through the door to find Gerry.)
Gerry: *Ugh* You're one of the gang who attacked our airship, aren't you!? No... Stop... Stay away...!
Model A: It's no use... He's in a total panic.
Grey: Calm down! I'm here to help you!
Gerry: S-S-Stay back, get away!
(A large spiked machine in the background starts to glow as a ball of purple energy appears around him.)
(Gerry collapses and disappears as the purple energy is pulled to the machine, which starts to hum with energy.)
Grey: W-What the heck just happened!?
(A human in green armor and a Reploid in purple, teleport in.)
??? (green): Total and utter defeat... That man, unable to endure the terror, fell victim to Model W.
Model A: Model W!? This humongous thing is a Biometal!?
??? (purple): CROSSCHECKING... DATA MATCH FOUND... SUBJECT IS MEGA MAN MODEL A.
Grey: What the heck are you guys!?
(The two Megamerge.)
Model A: Model H, Model P... Are these the other Mega Men Prometheus was talking about!?
Siarnaq: OPERATIONAL TIME LIMIT EXCEEDED. RETRIEVE MODEL W.
Grey: Wait! You think you can just run away!?
Aeolus: Us? Run away? Don't be stupid! We're letting you go... for now.
Siarnaq: PRESENT PRIMARY OBJECTIVE IS DEVELOPMENT AND RETRIEVAL OF BIOMETAL MODEL W. ENGAGING MEGA MAN MODEL A IN COMBAT DOES NOT FALL WITHIN STRATEGIC OPERATIONAL PARAMETERS.
Model A: What? So, you're just going to ignore us, huh!?
Aeolus: You understand correctly. We can end you at any time. You would do well to hone your skills by the next time we meet.
(Aeolus and Siarnaq teleport out with the Model W.)
Albert: Finally, we were able to reach you. Are you OK? We've verified that the security system has indeed been disarmed. Now you should be able to continue.
(On his way to the transerver, Grey comes across a passageway filled with spikes, vines, and poles.)
Model A: Be careful, Grey! There are thorns everywhere. Oh yeah! You can morph into Rospark! Press the +Control Pad up in front of vines and poles, and Rospark will grab hold of them. You can also move sideways, vine to vine, or pole to pole. Just press the Attack Button while holding the +Control Pad left or right to whip out Rospark's arms. Hold the Attack button and release it to do an electric attack! Oh? It looks like Rospark has one more attack! Press the other Attack button to extend Rospark's thorns. Holding this Attack button and releasing it will also do an electric attack. It's a lot to remember all at once, so look at it again on the Profile Screen.
(Grey returns to a transerver and reports the mission.)
Scene 7: Arctic Ice Floe
(Grey enters a bleak frozen landscape with icebergs floating on the sea.)
Mikhail: Can you hear me? It's me, Mikhail. It looks like you've stepped into some rough terrain. You should be able to cut a path through the chunks of ice, but the areas that allow access to the crash site are limited. Mega Man, you must find a way to break through.
(Grey fights through the area until he comes to a long, flat stretch of ice. A human in red armor and a Reploid in blue, teleport in.)
??? (red): Prometheus said he found someone interesting. I came to see who it was. Thetis, he's nothing more than a kid, like you.
??? (blue): Hey, you're not that much older than me.
Grey: W-What is it with you people!?
(The two Megamerge.)
Model A: King of the world? This just gets bigger and bigger!
Grey: Look, I don't care about that. All I know is that if I beat them, I get to find out who I am and where I came from.
Thetis: Sorry, I'm not in the mood to fight you right now. We've got other things to do.
Atlas: I've got no time for some kid who became a Mega Man by accident. You look like you could use a nice cold dip!
(Atlas slams a fist down onto the ice sheet, breaking it. She and Thetis teleport away as Grey falls into the sea below the ice. A large blue Pseudoroid appears.)
Chronoforce: *Ha ha ha* Welcome to my sub-zero world where even time freezes! You've got some nerve calling yourself a Mega Man, Defective! I, Chronoforce, will take that Biometal off your hands!
(Grey fights and defeats Chronoforce.)
Chronoforce: ...You are nothing more than a pawn in the palm... of HIS hand. ...All you can hope to do is just flail about in the little time you have left! *cackle*
(Chronoforce explodes, leaving behind some DNA, which Grey absorbs.)
Grey: Who is this HE, HIS, HIM guy everyone keeps talking about?
Model A: I bet he's the one calling the shots behind those other Mega Men. Game of Destiny... King of the world... This is all getting complicated...
(Grey goes through a door and finds a large room with spikes lining the ceiling.)
Model A: You got Chronoforce's power! Morph into Chronoforce and you can use Swim in the water all the time. Use the +Control Pad to move around in the water, and press the Dash button to propel yourself quickly through the current. Press the Attack button to shoot an ice arrow to freeze enemies solid! But be careful, on land you'll become totally immobile. Chronoforce's hard shell protects him from attacks from above. Just get under one of those falling icicles and see.
(Grey tries out some of Chronoforce's attacks.)
Model A: Chronoforce's charge attack is awesome! Hold the Attack button till the meter is fully charged, then release it to activate the Time Bomb! Time Bomb freezes time for everything around you, and slows down the movements of enemies. Cool, huh? Oh yeah, it's not only enemies that slow down... You can use Time Bomb to slow down falling objects like icicles.
(Grey returns to the transerver and reports the mission.)
Scene 8: Side Quests
*Note: This script does not include all possible side quests in the game.
(Grey goes to the cafe and talks to Jim, the owner.)
Jim: ... Oh hi, it's you! I didn't notice you there. Hmm... I'm sooo stressing out right now. Never mind, I'm just having a personal problem. There's someone I like, but I don't know how I can get her to notice me. They say there's a Magical Fruit... and that if you eat it, you'll fall in love with the person who gave it to you. If I could only get that fruit and make juice out of it, then I could give it to the girl I like to drink. Hey, could you do me a favor? They say that you can find the Magical Fruit at the Tower of Verdure. Could you go and find it for me?
(Grey finds the fruit and brings it back.)
Jim: You found it for me!? But it just looks like an ordinary green apple. Oh well. Anyway, thank you very much!
(Jim gives Grey 200 EC for the fruit.)
(Grey climbs up the wall to where Chris, a young Reploid, likes to be.)
Chris: Hey, my daddy says that in the olden days there used to be supercool superheroes. Did you know that!? But he said that was long, long ago, so there aren't many pictures of them left. Aah... I sure would like to see a legendary superhero. Do you know any superheroes? I know! Could you find somebody who has some legendary superhero stuff? Pleeeease! I'll give you my favorite pin from my pin collection!
(Grey talks to Ray, the comic book collector.)
Ray: Legendary superhero stuff? Oh, I was kind of short on cash a while back, so I sold all that stuff. That Hunter Tina said she wanted to see some pics of cool guys. I didn't want to give it to her, but she wanted it sooo bad.
(Grey talks to Tina.)
Tina: Huh? You're looking for some legendary superhero stuff? Let me think... Did I have something like that...? Ah, you must be thinking about that secret disk. I gave that away to one of the kids in Hunters Camp! I heard it had some pictures of nice guys on it, so I bought it for 300 EC!
(Grey goes back to where Chris is.)
Chris: Huh? Secret Disk...? This flying disk toy thing? The picture on the package was scary, it didn't look like a legendary hero to me. It sure wasn't the kind of superhero I had imagined. I'm sorry I put you to the trouble. Here, I'll give you this disk. But I want my pin back though!
(Grey enters a room a couple floors down inside building 01 and sees a Reploid standing there.)
Nick: I'm Nick... who are you? As you can see, I'm an old-model Reploid! Just because I'm old doesn't mean that my life cycle settings are any longer. It just means that I'm a previous generation Reploid. You know, this room could use some life. Been thinking about turning it into a cafe. Jim, the Hunter, let me borrow his blueprints for a cafe, but I lost them while walking back from Jim's cafe. It was really windy. Even if I did manage to find them, it'd probably be in some place too hard for me to reach. I feel terrible for asking a favor of someone I just met, but would you mind looking for them?
(Grey finds the blueprints outside building 01 on top of the fence and brings them back.)
Nick: Thank you. Now I can finally build that cafe! Oh, and I can start by selling E Tanks or something.
(Nick gives Grey 200 EC for finding the blueprints.)
(Grey talks to Blossom and Warren.)
Blossom: I want to go pick some pretty flowers for my mommy, but Daddy says it's too dangerous to leave Hunter's Camp. Could you go instead?
Blossom: Mommy really likes lilies! I think that lilies only grow out in the wild. You can find them in areas where there are lots of other plants, and near waterfalls.
(Grey finds the lilies in the Tower of Verdure, Floating Ruins, and the Waterfall Ruins areas and brings them back to Blossom.)
Blossom: Oh, thank you so much! Look, I made Mommy's grave pretty while you were gone. I lost my mommy to Mavericks in the desert when I was two. She's in heaven now... But I know she'll like the flowers the Hunter picked, right Daddy?
Blossom: Oh yeah, these are for you! These E-Crystals are from Daddy, and this chip is from me.
(Blossom gives Grey 100 EC and the Eraser chip.)
(Grey talks to a scientist named Carley in one of the database rooms.)
Carley: It seems that the remains of a rare and ancient Mechaniloid were found in the Oil Fields. With all of the reporters and press everywhere, it's practically impossible to get to that area. Besides, I can't go out there. Everybody knows that the Oil Fields are just too dangerous. If I could only pinpoint the location of the Mechaniloid remains, I could have some guys go in. Could i get you to go and put this micro-transmitter at the site of the Mechaniloid remains?
(Grey takes the micro-transmitter at the site of the remains and goes back to talk to Carley.)
Carley: Thank you! My guys just got back with the Mechaniloid remains. The analysis results indicate that this Mechaniloid is very, very old. Most likely, those Oil Fields are all that's left of a dried up ancient sea. Oh, by the way! The Hunters brought back this... I don't have any use for it, so I'll give it to you.
(Carley gives Grey the Frog chip.)
Scene 9: The Raider Airship
(Grey enters a desert area close to where the Raider Airship had crashed.)
Security System: DUE TO AN AIRSHIP CRASH IN THIS AREA, SAFETY LOCKS ARE IN OPERATION. LOCKS CAN BE DISENGAGED BY DEACTIVATING THE 3 ELEMENTAL SWITCHES. TO DEACTIVATE, EXPLOIT THE VULNERABLE ATTRIBUTES OF EACH ELEMENTAL SWITCH. ELECTRICITY IS EFFECTIVE AGAINST FIRE, ICE AGAINST ELECTRICITY, and FIRE AGAINST ICE.
(Grey deactivates the three switches.)
Security System: ELEMENTAL SWITCHES DEACTIVATED. SAFETY LOCKS DISENGAGED.
(Grey sees an injured Raider named Dan.)
Grey: Hey, are you OK!?
Dan: Ugh... Ug... Help me... Our airship is under attack by something nasty... It intends to massacre us all!
Thomas: This is Master Thomas. It seems you've arrived at the crash site. That entire area is an underground resource mining facility. If that airship explodes, it will trigger the entire facility to detonate.
Model A: He means we're going to be blown away! C'mon, let's get outta here!
Grey: ...The airship is this way, right?
Model A: I don't get it. Those guys are all Raiders. Why do you wanna help them, of all people!?
Grey: The bounty Hunters didn't know me, but they helped me. I want to do the same for someone else. I shouldn't need a reason to save lives!
Model A: OK, OK, if you feel that strongly about it... You want me to go with you right? Well let's go, Grey!
Thomas: If the airship is destroyed, you won't be able to recover any of its parts. Anyway, you have to prevent the worst from happening. Hurry, Grey!
(Grey enters the crashed airship and sees another Raider named Tom.)
Tom: Are you here to help us? Some of us weren't able to get out in time. They're still trapped in that room. There's something funny going on with the power. Some of the doors won't open... Please... All of my friends are in that room. Please get them out.
(Grey reactivates the power generators by hitting them with Rospark's electric attack and then finds a Raider named Daniel in one of the rooms.)
Daniel: W-Who are you? Are you going to hurt me? Please... No...
(Daniel runs out of the room. Grey opens the next door and finds another Raider.)
Eric: Ohhh! Finally, it opened! Thank you!
(Eric runs out of the room. Grey opens the next door to see one of the Raiders cornered by Mavericks. Grey destroys the Mavericks.)
Adam: I dunno who you are, but thank you for helping me.
(Adam runs out. Grey goes back to talk to Tom.)
Tom: Thank you! I'll never forget this!
(Grey continues on until he sees Atlas standing near the edge of a hole.)
Atlas: So, those Raiders escaped through here. Every last one of you will become nourishment for Model W!
(Atlas jumps down into the hole. Grey jumps in after her.)
Atlas: So you managed to stay alive, Mega Man Model A. Don't tell me you're here to help the Raiders? They're not even your allies.
Grey: I won't just stand by while innocent people are being hurt!
Atlas: You're not innocent, just ignorant. The history of the world, the history of the war... And now, the strongest of those who evolved as a product of war remain. A newly crowned king of Mega Men will soon spawn a new evolution. Those who die ignorant are simply unable to keep pace with progress.
Model A: So you feed them to Model W? I'd say that's pretty barbaric progress.
Atlas: What would you know!? You can't even comprehend your own power. If I'm the one that's wrong, try and beat me!
(Atlas Megamerges with Model F and attacks Grey.)
(If Atlas defeats Grey)
Atlas: It is through struggle that humans learn discipline and grow! I will be Mega Man King, for the war that never ends!
(If Grey defeats Atlas)
Atlas: Even if you are a Defective, there's no changing the fact that you are still one of HIS creations! Very well, I yield to you. If you have the determination to fight, one day you will know who you really are, but regret... that you didn't die ignorant...!
(Atlas teleports away, leaving behind some DNA, which Grey absorbs. Suddenly he reels in pain.)
Grey: Aghh! Aaaaarrrr! What's happening!? Model A! Aiegh!!
???: EXTRACTING FROM CODE AW15 TO CE70. EXPANDING REPORT DATA. ......Congratulations. The Model A which I created is protected by a cipher that is broken only in battle. You, who broke the first cipher, are worthy to know its truth and power. Through my research of the lost technology, I have created a key to unlock the door to a new evolution. Biometal Model W... He who holds it, will hold the power to rule the world. But it will take much time before people will finally appreciate my work. Sacrifices are necessary to awaken Model W. Model Ws which I have hidden throughout the world are waiting to be awakened. Waiting for when the one who understands my work appears, to receive the power.
Grey: *gulp* Model A... What the heck was that...?
Model A: Was that the data recorded on me that those Sage guys were talking about? The data on the one who made Model W... and me?
Grey: Are you OK, Model A? We need to help the others. I think they ran this way.
(Grey continues and finds two Raiders hiding behind a wall.)
Wolff: What!? Whoind'heck are you! This shield is made of ceratanium! Your attacks are completely useless against it. So, why don't you save yourself the trouble! Go home!
Model A: ...All this talk is starting to get really old. Yo, morph into that Atlas lady, and let's hit 'em hard with a Charge Attack! Say goodbye to that precious shield of yours!
(Grey morphs into Atlas and easily destroys the shield. Wolff immediately stops laughing and cowers in the corner.)
Wolff: Waaaagh! P-Please d-don't hurt me!
Model A: I thought so... just a buncha wusses! Morph back, and let's set the record straight...
(Scene cuts to a short time later. Wolff and Grey stand next to the Raider airship.)
Wolff: You saved our lives. Thanks a lot, Grey!
Grey: I'd like to use your airship for parts to repair our train.
Wolff: Aah, it's already been taken care of. I just sent some of our guys to Hunter's Camp to do the repairs. We were all impressed with your strength and courage. We're going to clean up our act and work with you as honest to goodness bounty Hunters.
Model A: *chuckle* It looks like you have a follower. It's not a bad feeling to be appreciated.
Wolff: The repairs should almost be finished. Go back to the camp and have a look. I hope you find out something at Legion!
(Grey starts to go to the transerver.)
Model A: Atlas can do a lot more than just that the Charge Attack! Press the Attack button while holding the +Control Pad up to shoot upwards! Hold the Attack button then release it while holding the +Control Pad down to perform the Ground Breaker move! You can even change the trajectory of the Buster shot by using the bottom screen. You can access that function by first selecting "Status" on the sub screen. Then change the trajectory by either touching the boxes or using the +Control Pad. Select "Exit" to complete the changes!
(Grey returns to the transerver and reports the mission.)
Scene 10: Attack on Legion HQ
(Grey uses the newly repaired train to go to the city where Legion HQ is. As he enters the area, a large explosion is heard.)
Grey: D-Did you hear that!? What was that loud noise?
Model A: There's a shootout somewhere. I wonder if Mavericks got the jump on us. I can't get through to the Sage Trinity. This doesn't look good.
Grey: Legion Headquarters is this way! Let's hurry!
(Grey fights through the Mavericks in the city, and after a long while reaches an empty room. Siarnaq teleports in.)
Siarnaq: TARGET ACQUIRED. INITIATE INFORMATION ANALYSIS. COMMENCE PLANNED COMBAT PROCEDURE? INPUT RESPONSE...
Model A: Aw, man, this guy's the weirdest of 'em all.
Siarnaq: INVALID INPUT. INPUT RESPONSE.
Grey: Well, if this is the only way for me to find out who I really am...
Siarnaq: RESPONSE ACCEPTED... COMMENCE COMBAT!
(Siarnaq Megamerges with Model P.)
(If Siarnaq defeats Grey)
Siarnaq: DESTRUCTION OF BIOLOGICAL TARGET CONFIRMED. COMMENCING PLAN TO TAKE CONTROL OF LEGION HEADQUARTERS. *laugh*
(If Grey defeats Siarnaq)
Siarnaq: DAMAGE... CRITICAL! HAZARDOUS TO PROCEED WITH COMBAT ENGAGEMENT IN PRESENT CONDITION... RETREATING!
(Siarnaq teleports out, leaving behind some DNA, which Grey absorbs. He reels in pain again.)
???: EXTRACTING FROM CODE CE71 TO FC60. EXPANDING REPORT DATA. ...You who have broken the second cipher now stand at a fateful crossroads. If you continue to read this data, there is no turning back. You too are part of this plan. Biometal has the ability to give its "Chosen One" superhuman powers and combine to become a new lifeform. This combination results in a Megamerge, the transformation into a Mega Man. I've decided to select a new Chosen One suitable for Model W, the next step in evolution. Finding a suitable candidate in this world is nearly impossible. But I can do it, because as one of the Legion's Sage Trinity, I know everything about the world...
Grey: Model W was created by one of the Sage Trinity!?
Model A: That means that he and Prometheus are connected somehow behind the scenes. And it means that we can't even trust the Sage Trinity. Yet you still wanna go?
Grey: ...Come on, Model A! They're the only ones who know about us.
Model A: The data recorded on me is getting more and more outrageous.
(Grey goes through the next door and finds himself in a pitch-black room.)
Model A: What is this place? I can't see a thing in here! Try morphing into Siarnaq. Maybe that'll help. Touch the Siarnaq icon on the lower right of the bottom screen. The bottom screen will change into a radar scope. You'll be able to see the landscape and enemy positions! You should be able to attack enemies by touching their location indicators on the bottom screen. But unfortunately, there's no way out of this room... I know! Jump and press up on the +Control Pad. With Siarnaq's ability, you should be able to grab onto that contraption. Give it a try. Just press up on the +Control Pad while you're in mid-jump! Depending on what you've grabbed onto, you can press the +Control Pad up twice quickly to jump on top of it. You can also press the +Control Pad down twice quickly to hang. Hold the Attack button and release it to throw a Cross Star! If there's something you don't quite understand, just take a look at Profile on the sub screen!
(Grey returns to the transerver and reports the mission.)
Scene 11: Betrayal
(Scene opens to view the Sage Trinity talking together inside the HQ building.)
Mikhail: I can't stand Mavericks!
Thomas: It's hard to believe that they're cooperating.
Albert: They may be taking orders from a leader.
Mikhail: What do they want? To make enemies with every nation on the planet?
(Albert walks to the window.)
Albert: What? What if they're just fed up with the world?
(A Model W appears and begins circling around Albert.)
Albert: A new rule... For the evolution of the ultimate Mega Man...
(A second Model W appears.)
Albert: And there's one scientist who wants to see that evolution through to its end.
(Two more Model W's appear and begin circling.)
Mikhail: What are you saying!? No... You didn't!
Albert: I have a proposal. A proposal to this world I've led for centuries. A system to come up with fair solutions based on the doctrine of the Sage Trinity. If you're opposed, then just try and stop me.
(Grey runs into the room.)
Model A: Hey, isn't that Biometal!?
Albert: Two of the ciphers have been broken. I wonder, just how much information has been compromised? I wanted to dispose of you sooner, but things didn't go exactly as planned.
Grey: YOU are the one who's been trying to have us killed!?
Albert: Don't look so angry! Welcome to Legion...Defective.
Grey: Master Alberrrt!!
(Grey locks onto Albert's position and fires multiple times, but Albert deflects all of the shots. Some shots break the window behind Albert, who begins to hover.)
Albert: We will meet again. You are, after all, made in my image.
(Albert floats out of the window and down towards the city. Grey runs to the edge of the window and looks down, but is unable to see where Albert went. Later, Grey goes back to talk to Thomas.)
Thomas: I see. I'll tell you everything we know. With these mechanical bodies, we've been able to live for centuries. When Albert became one of the Sage Trinity those centuries ago, he was already working on Model W. Also, I looked you up in our database, Grey.
Grey: And what did you find out about me?
Thomas: Well, there was no data on you... It appears that you never existed.
Grey: That's ridiculous! You're lying!
Thomas: I'm not sure what you are... But Albert said that you were made in his image. I'm afraid that because you showed up, he had to speed up his plan. I'm not exactly sure why, though.
Grey: I come all this way, go through all of that, almost get killed, and all that you can tell me is that you don't know anything?
Model A: ...*sigh*
(Mikhail approaches Thomas and Grey.)
Mikhail: Gentlemen, bad news. We have Mavericks showing up all over the world. Albert has started hunting for food for his Model W.
Model A: He knows the jig is up! He's going for a Hail Mary! Let's go, Grey!
Grey: But... I...
Model A: C'mon, let's go make Albert tell us everything he knows. And yeah, we can do heroic rescues along the way!
Grey: I can't... I don't know anything about myself or the world. How can I stand up to Albert, who knows everything...
(Model A demerges and floats in front of Grey.)
Model A: But I know you! You're a tough-talking stubborn kid who helps people he doesn't know without expecting anything in return. A kind, crazy fool!
Model A: Are you just gonna let people suffer? Some conscience you have! What happened to "I shouldn't need a reason to save lives"?
Grey: You're right, there's still something I can do... Let's go, Model A!
(Model A joins Grey again.)
Grey: Maybe we can't win, but we're the only ones who stand a chance of beating Albert!
Thomas: Thank you, Grey. I'd like you to go on another mission. I want you to stop Albert's plan and save our world. I've added new transport destinations to the transerver. ...I'm counting on you.
(Grey returns to the transerver to report the mission.)
Scene 12: The Highway
(Grey enters a highway area.)
Mikhail: There are people being chased by the Mavericks on that Highway ahead. It looks like all the people trying to flee in their cars have caused a traffic jam. The situation is gridlock. Drive back the Mavericks and buy time for the people down there to escape.
(Grey fights through some of the Mavericks until he sees many damaged cars stuck in a traffic jam. One Reploid starts to yell to the drivers in front of him.)
Raymond: Hey, move it! We're sitting ducks here!
Grey: Leave the Mavericks to me! When it's clear, I want you to go!
Raymond: I don't know who you are, but thank you! There are still cars stopped back there! They need your help!
(Grey destroys a large plane Mechaniloid that was bombing the cars. The cars speed away.)
Model A: It looks like the people made it through.
Grey: Let's keep going. We have to fight off the Mavericks.
(Grey continues until he encounters Thetis near the edge of a cliff.)
(Thetis casually tosses Model L into the air and catches it a few times.)
Thetis: I'm flattered. You remembered my name!
(Thetis catches Model L again and Megamerges.)
Thetis: Come, there's something I want to show you.
(Thetis jumps into the water. Grey follows him to the bottom to see a piece of Model W humming in the background.)
Model A: Model W!? You attacked the Highway to feed that thing!?
Thetis: That's right. But what I want to show you is further down... At the bottom of this dirty sea. The sea during the war was no place for living creatures. After the war, the sea's beauty was restored. However, as humans repopulated, the sea once again grew filthy. You see, humans have to desecrate the Earth to live on it.
Grey: So you take innocent lives!? You kill humans just like yourself.
Thetis: Like me? No, me and the others are no ordinary humans, we are Mega Men! And after I finish you off, I will be even more powerful. When I am the Mega Man King, I will rid the Earth of self-serving humans!
(Grey fights Thetis and eventually defeats him.)
Thetis: It's too bad... I thought you, at least, would understand what I'm trying to accomplish! I won't give up. I shall awaken Model W and change this world for the better!
(Thetis teleports out with the Model W, leaving behind some DNA, which Grey absorbs. He reels in pain again.)
???: EXTRACTING FROM CODE FC61 TO UC79. EXPANDING REPORT DATA. In order to find a Biomatch for Biometal Model W, first I created sibling Reploids. As well as giving them a portion of Model W's power, I gave them one commandment. That was to determine the most powerful Mega Man. A commandment to Biomatch each of my Chosen Ones to a Biometal. And have them fight until only one of them was left. The survivor of this contest will attain the power of Model W, and become the ultimate Mega Man. Yes, the new King of the world, the Mega Man King.
Model A: We broke another cipher. Now I understand why Mega Men fight each other. But where is the information about us? And what the heck are the two Reploid siblings?
Model A: Hey, can you hear me? What happened? Why the frown?
Grey: Huh? It's nothing...
Mikhail: It seems you got everyone out of there safely. Just what we'd expect from a Chosen One.
Grey: (Thetis said that Mega Men fight to change the world. Is it OK that I'm only fighting to learn about myself? Mega Man... The power wielded by a Chosen One.)
(Grey continues for a short distance.)
Model A: Hey, Grey! Morph into Thetis and the water becomes your home. You can swim around freely underwater. Underwater, press the Jump button once to get into your swimming position! Then, you can move around by using the +Control Pad. You can dart through the water by pressing the Dash button! Hold the Attack button and release it to perform an ice move. Ice attacks can penetrate the landscape, so that's probably a good thing to remember. Also, Thetis has the ability to show where items are located on the bottom screen! If you're somewhere you're not sure about, morph into Thetis to find items!
(Grey returns to the transerver and reports the mission.)
Scene 13: Floating Ruins
(Grey teleports to an area with overgrown ruins. The ground starts to shake violently.)
Grey: W-What!? Aaaagh!
(The entire area rises high up into the air.)
Grey: What... happened!?
Model A: The ground is floating! What's going on?
Thomas: Are you alright? That area is experiencing a gravitational anomaly. Also, powerful energy reactions have been discovered. In all likelihood they are the cause of the gravitational anomaly. Proceed to investigate the energy reactions.
(Grey fights through the stage until after a long while he sees a Model W humming.)
Grey: What's a Model W doing here!?
Model A: Could this be the source of the gravitational anomaly!?
(Aeolus teleports in.)
Aeolus: Inescapable destiny... So, you came, Mega Man Model A. But I'll be taking the Model W.
Grey: Aeolus! What are you doing collecting Model Ws!?
Aeolus: That's a silly question... You call yourself a Mega Man, yet you don't even know the significance of Model W... You fear what you don't understand, and eliminate what you fear... It's because of foolish people like you that there is conflict.
Model A: I don't know what all of that ideological babble was about, but it sounded a lot like a threat.
Aeolus: So it is. In the world I have in mind, there is no place for idiots like you, Mega Man Model A! Your time's up, fool!
(Aeolus Megamerges with Model H. Grey fights him and eventually defeats him.)
Aeolus: ...A woeful miscalculation! To think that I could be bested by a Defective! I'll never acknowledge one as ignorant as you, Mega Man! Your time's up, fool! I will right this world's wrongs!
(Aeolus teleports away with the Model W, leaving behind some DNA, which Grey absorbs. He reels in pain.)
???: EXTRACTING FROM CODE UC80 TO AC195. EXPANDING REPORT DATA. The power of Biometal isn't something to be had by just anyone. It's a power which should only be obtained by a Chosen One, one with the ability to change the world. I devised this cipher to lock away the power of the Biometal. A cipher that would allow only the Chosen One to unleash its power. In other words, it's locked to its Biomatch. All Reploids have come to Legion to have their life-cycle setting checked. I made sure that every Reploid I inspected was infused with my DNA. That is the key to the cipher, the proof of being the Chosen One. Yes, by viewing this data, you now have within you my DNA.
Model A: Grey... What's wrong?
Grey: Am I a descendant of Albert?
Model A: I know it's not easy, but don't let it get to you. That's just some label Albert made up. Try not to think about it.
Grey: Uh... yeah.
Model A: That Albert guy just used his position as one of the Sage Trinity to do whatever he wanted.
Thomas: It's true that Albert knew more about technology than anyone. But we had no idea that was the kind of man he was. We should have known better.
Grey: It's OK. I had a feeling something like this might happen... But it feels like there is still some other secret to me and Model A.
Model A: And only Albert knows it.
Thomas: The gravity in the area should normalize momentarily. Head to the next destination.
(Grey continues for a short distance.)
Model A: It seems that you can Air Dash using Aeolus. If you hit the Dash button in midair, it looks like you can get some horizontal hang time. If you hold the +Control Pad up and press the Dash button in midair, you can Air Dash straight up. Air Dash does not reduce your BM gauge. If you press the Jump button in midair, you can hover. (You can modify this in the Options Menu.) Hold down the Attack button and then release it to perform an electric move! These electric attacks penetrate through the landscape, so you can use them to attack enemies behind walls. Also, Aeolus has the ability to check an enemy's data on the bottom screen. Knowing an enemy's weakness, now that's an ability you can use!
(Grey returns to the transerver and reports the mission.)
Scene 14: The Scrapyard
(Grey enters a junk-filled maze area.)
Model A: What is this place? There's junk everywhere.
Mikhail: That's a Scrapyard. There are mountains of discarded machines. Until only recently they were buried in snow. Imagine that!
Grey: I don't see any snow.
Mikhail: The hear from the machines melted it all. Machines that were thrown away simply because they were supposedly broken became Mavericks and started working again.
Model A: Scrap that just starts working again!?
Mikhail: That's the reason I had you two come here. Whoever is controlling the scrap should be here too. Take him down and scrap the Mavericks.
(Grey fights through the maze until he finally comes to a Pseudoroid in a dark room.)
???: I see you pushed your way through all of those Mavericks to get a special front row seat to watch me perform. That's pretty Mega of you, Mega Man Model A. I'm Vulturon. I play the part of the prince who kisses Model Ws and wakes them up!
Grey: Model Ws!? Are they in there?
Vulturon: Not so fast, that's where the VIP seats are. I'm afraid you can't go in there. What do you say we start the show? I'll play the guitar, and you'll sing the vocals. I'm looking forward to the finale as you scream your last breath!
(Grey fights Vulturon and defeats him.)
Vulturon: What! This was supposed to be Mega's death concert, not mine! Aaaaagggghh!
(Vulturon explodes, leaving behind some DNA, which Grey absorbs. Grey enters the next room to see Pandora and a large Model W.)
Pandora: I hear it... The discarded machines... the Mechaniloids... Their voices of sadness... of pain... of anger... All food for Model W.
Pandora: Can you not hear it...? The cries of this world... of this planet...?
Grey: Of course I hear it! How could I not!? And you always seem to be at the center of those screams.
Pandora: That's not so...
Pandora: Those screams... are because of you and that Albert fellow... Even as you awoke... destiny had already been set in motion.
Model A: What the heck are you talking about?
Pandora: The time will come... when you shall know everything. And you will be driven to despair...
(Pandora teleports away with the Model W.)
Grey: I'll know everything? Driven to despair? What was that about?
Mikhail: Hmph... She took Model W with her. She's definitely odd. Good work. The Mavericks in that area seem to be settling down. Mission accomplished. Don't forget to submit a report.
(Grey enters the next room to see two metal blocks arranged on a pulley system in front of the exit.)
Model A: What the...? Somebody's done something to this room. How are you supposed to get past that? Yes, I know! You can morph into Vulturon and use his ability! Vulturon can scale walls. You should be able to grab onto that counterweight and pull it down. Vulturon can also hover. To use hover, press and hold the Jump button in midair. It looks like it uses some of your BM gauge, though. In other words, be careful hovering for long periods of time!
(Grey returns to the transerver and reports the mission.)
Scene 15: The Control Center
(Grey enters a large building and sees everything on fire.)
Grey: *pant* *pant* This heat is unbearable! What the heck is going on?
Thomas: That building is the Control Center for several energy furnaces in the surrounding city. But the Mavericks have caused an uncontrollable thermal runaway.
Model A: If we don't do something, the energy furnaces will explode. These guys don't mess around, do they!?
Thomas: We don't know how long those furnaces have until they blow. Do something to take charge of that Control Center.
(Grey fights through the burning building until he finds Prometheus with another large Model W piece.)
Prometheus: It's been a while. But I see you're surviving the Game of Destiny. Well? Have you found anything out about yourself?
Grey: Shut up! What do you know!?
Prometheus: Don't bark at me, scum! I've only come to retrieve this Model W. No rush, I'll cut you to ribbons soon enough. Look forward to it!
(Prometheus teleports out with the Model W.)
Model A: Bleeeh! He makes me sick!
(A large wasp-like Pseudoroid flies down.)
???: My, my! Did little Prometheus leave already? He's so impatient. In a moment the energy furnaces will explode and a beautiful fire flower will bloom, filled with sweet nectar. The nectar of terror.
Grey: So you're behind the thermal runaway!
???: That's right, boy... Oh, I mean Mega Man Model A! I'm Queenbee. I'll give you a taste of my special nectar... Despair with a touch of bitterness.
(If Queenbee defeats Grey)
Queenbee: What a slovenly boy you are! And you call yourself a Mega Man?
(If Grey defeats Queenbee)
Queenbee: *Aagh* What!? You refuse my precious gift of despair!? Aaaaargh!
(Queenbee explodes, leaving behind some DNA, which Grey absorbs.)
Thomas: I presume that's the main computer which controls the energy furnaces. This can't be! The cooling function can't keep pace with the thermal runaway! Rip out the core module and shut down the main computer by force.
Grey: How are we going to take out the core module? It's huge!
Model A: Hey, change into Queenbee! She was carrying some kind of big container before, right? Shouldn't we be able to raise the core module up the way she did? When you morph into Queenbee, you can fly by pressing the Jump button! But when you fly, your BM gauge goes down. To lift the core module, first get on top of it and press down on the +Control Pad to dock! When the core module is docked, press the Jump button to fly away with the module! Who knows? There may be other things you can dock with. If you find something in the area that you think you can dock with, give it a try!
(Grey pulls up the computer.)
Thomas: It seems to have switched over to its subsystem somehow, and the thermal runaway has stopped. The auto-recovery system should kick in momentarily. Thank you for your help.
(Grey returns to the transerver and reports the mission.)
Scene 16: Model ZX
(After Grey reports the last mission, Thomas contacts him.)
Thomas: This is Thomas. Albert seems to be retrieving Model Ws from everywhere. Actually, we've just gotten confirmation of Model W activity in the Quarry at Hunter's Camp. Hunters have Mavericks pinned down, but they can't move in any further because of the rough terrain. It's up to you to get into the Quarry, then find and retrieve the Model W. Our reports tell us that there's a large airship closing in on the Quarry. Albert may already be aware of what's going on, so be careful.
(Grey enters a dark area and continues until he sees a pile of wreckage.)
Model A: Who could have done all this? Another Mega Man? But Albert's guys shouldn't have to fight Mavericks...
Grey: Whoever did this must be after the Model W. We better hurry.
(Grey continues on until he sees someone standing next to the Model W.)
Grey: Who are you!?
???: What's this kid doing here?
(A blue Biometal floats in front of her.)
??? (blue): Careful, Aile! I sense Biometal on him.
(A red Biometal appears as well.)
??? (red): I've never sensed anything like this before. What is he?
Model A: Two Biometals!? Is she a Mega Man!?
Grey: *gulp* Step away from that Model W!
Aile: What do you want with this Model W?
Grey: I'm here to retrieve it! I won't hand it over to you!
Aile: I figured as much. Well in that case... You leave me no choice.
(Aile holds the two Biometals in the air.)
Models X & Z: Biolink Established! M.E.G.A. System Online!
(Aile Megamerges to become Model ZX.)
Aile: Sorry, but I can't let you have the Model W. Especially if you're a Mega Man!
(If Aile defeats Grey)
Aile: The Game of Destiny Prometheus spoke of is still going on. But I can't stop until all Model Ws have been destroyed!
(If Grey defeats Aile: Below)
(Aile reels in pain as well.)
Aile: Gyaaagh! What's... this!?
Model Z: He's resonating...! Could it be because of his Biometal?
Model X: Be careful, Aile! There's some kind of data pouring out from his Biometal!
???: EXTRACTING FROM CODE AC196 TO TC2343. EXPANDING REPORT DATA. This is the last cipher. You, who knows all about the plan. You have earned the right to receive the ultimate Biometal. Sleeping Model Ws everywhere feed on the fear of humans, waiting for their day of awakening. And when all Model Ws have combined, the ultimate Biometal will be born. Its name will be Ouroboros... The who holds the Ouroboros will evolve beyond the mere fusion of man and machine. What I seek is to become the ultimate Mega Man. My name is Master Albert. And I decide how things are going to be. You, who will usher in a new way of life in a new world... I hope that one day my research will pave the way to a new course of evolution.
(Grey and Aile stand there with their Biometals hovering around them.)
Grey: Ouroboros and the ultimate Mega Man... That's Albert's plan!
Model A: Now I get it... The reason why we were created. Why you can Megamerge with me...
Grey: Model A! Do you remember? Do you know about me?
Aile: Can someone explain it to me too? When I resonated with you just now, I saw a lot of data. That man, Master Albert created Model W right? So who are you?
Model A: That's kinda hard to explain...
(The giant Model W in the background suddenly breaks from the wires and falls down several stories.)
Model X: Uh oh! Model W!
Model Z: It must've taken some damage in the fighting.
Grey: Tell me, Model A, who am I?
Model A: I'm sorry... I can't tell you now...
Grey: Model A!
Aile: Stop it! That's not fair to the Biometal. And this isn't the time for that. While we're wasting time here, that Model W is making more Mavericks, which is going to make it tough to get close.
Grey: I know. Sorry, Model A... Let's keep moving.
Aile: You're a good kid.
Grey: Hey! Don't make fun of me.
(Grey Megamerges with Model A again and starts to leave.)
Aile: Aren't you going to try and stop me?
Grey: That's not why I'm here.
(Grey exits the room and continues through the area until he encounters the heavily damaged Spidrill that he fought earlier. Model W merges with the spider and revives it.)
Model A: Hey, what are we supposed to do? They can't expect us to take this thing back!
Grey: We have no choice. We have to destroy it!
(Grey fights the spider, but is unable to destroy it.)
Grey: Dang! How is this thing still able to move!? Is this the strength of Model W!?
(Aile appears again and destroys the spider with her saber.)
Grey: Why did you help me? Didn't you come here to kill me?
Aile: That isn't why I came here either. My objective has always been to destroy Model W and stop the Game of Destiny, where Mega Men fight each other. What is your name?
Aile: You're not my enemy... I forgot to ask who you are.
(Grey demerges with Model A, who hovers next to him.)
Grey: I'm Grey and this is Model A. And what the heck is your story?
Aile: Is that any way to talk to a girl you just met?
(Aile demerges with Model X and Model Z, who hover next to her.)
Aile: My name is Aile. This blue Biometal is Model X. And this red one is Model Z. It's not mine, it's a memento from someone who was very dear to me. Anyway let's go back to the camp. We can talk on the way.
(Later, Grey and Aile stand in the Hunter's Camp with their Biometals hovering next to them.)
Aile: So let me get this straight. Master Albert, Prometheus, Pandora and four Mega Men. Hm, so that's what happened to the Biometals that were stolen from the lab.
Model X: Unfortunately those Biometals probably have the consciousness of their four Chosen Ones. Biometals gave us strength when we fought the Model W.
Model Z: We followed the stolen Biometals here.
Aile: That's when we found the Model W and you.
Grey: Why are you dudes fighting Model W?
Aile: "You dudes"? *sigh* Anyway, just the same as you. Before I knew it I was just caught up in it. I lost a lot of close people in the battles with Mavericks and Model Ws...
Aile: No... I just don't want anymore people to suffer like I have. So I decided to destroy all Model Ws in order to put an end to the Game of Destiny. I decided to become a Mega Man because I wanted to help people. You're fighting because you're trying to find out who you are, but don't forget. Only you can decide your own destiny. No matter what anyone says you are. The power you contain within is the key to creating your future. That's what a special person said to me.
Grey: My destiny... My future.
Aile: Oh by the way, here. I'll give you this.
(Aile walks over to Grey and gives him a Green Card Key.)
Aile: There was Pseudoroid activity in the area that key opens. I was going to check it out myself, but I think it would be better if you held on to the key. I'm going to join the others and go after the Biometals. We'll probably meet again, since... we're fighting the same enemy.
(Aile walks away.)
Model A: Grey... I...
Grey: I'm sorry about before. It doesn't matter about my past. I want to use my power and fight for the people that helped me. I'm ready to listen to whatever you have to say when you're ready to say it.
Thomas: Good work. It's unfortunate that we couldn't bring back the Model W in one piece. But the destruction of a Model W should put a wrench in Albert's plan. I'd like to use this opportunity to our advantage somehow, but unfortunately, we don't have any leads. Use your new key and search areas you haven't been to yet. Something may turn up. We're counting on you, Grey.
(Grey returns to the transerver and reports the mission.)
Scene 17: The Biolab
(Grey enters an area reminiscent of a sewer.)
Grey: Ugh... It really stinks down here... This is no ordinary sewage! Is it coming from inside?
Model A: Us Biometals don't really have a sense of smell... I'm kinda glad I'm not you right now.
Grey: That's no fair... Anyway this smell is foul. Let's have a look inside.
(Grey continues until he sees some industrial sewage.)
Grey: The smell must have been coming from here. It's industrial sewage.
Model A: With this equipment, this is obviously not just a ruin. Let's go in and find out what this place really is.
(Grey continues until he finds a Pseudoroid guarding some large deactivated Mechaniloids.)
Grey: A big Mechaniloid!? And there are more inside!
???: Are you surprised? These soldiers were all born here. They're to be used one day by the Mega Man King!
Model A: Albert thought about all of this!?
Bifrost: My name is Bifrost... Guardian of the sleeping soldiers. When the new world is born, they shall awaken and exterminate the old-world inhabitants. But for now, Mega Man Model A, I shall exterminate you! I shall crush every last one of your bones with my jaws!
(Grey fights Bifrost and defeats him.)
Bifrost: Am I the one being exterminated!? Is it you who shall bring about the new world and not we!? It is you after all... UWAAAAA!
(Bifrost explodes, leaving behind some DNA, which Grey absorbs. He continues until he comes to some indestructible blocks.)
Model A: Up ahead... I remember those... Those are the blocks we couldn't break no matter how hard we tried! We might be able to use Bifrost's jaws to do the trick. One of the Attack buttons activates a spinning blade, Crocod'wheel. And the other Attack button fires the Ice Fang! To fire the Ice Fang, hold down the other Attack button. When you release it, you can bite and destroy things in your path! There are two hidden moves that Bifrost can perform that aren't shown on the Profile screen! One is the Stamp Squash, and the other is the Tail Assault! They take skill to master, but when you do, you can go on a rampage!
(Grey returns to the transerver and reports the mission.)
Scene 18: Waterfall Ruins
(Grey enters a dense jungle area with many waterfalls and rivers.)
Mikhail: It's me, Mikhail. About the information we found on you in the Legion's database... It appears that someone hacked in from the outside and erased it.
Model A: It had to be Albert.
Mikhail: We did all we could to pinpoint the location of the hacker, but the network response is slow in the area you are in. Can you see a large computer facility in that area?
Grey: Computer facility? No, I can't see anything from here.
Mikhail: I'm afraid we can't do anything else. Now, it's up to you. If you can find the computer used to do the hacking, there may still be some data on it. The missing data on you is one of the only clues there are left to track down Albert.
Grey: The computer used to hack my data could be around here...? OK. I'll look for it.
(Grey soon sees two Pseudoroid twins.)
??? (right): Wait right there! I don't care who you are. But I can't allow you to continue any further!
??? (left): *grunt*!
Grey: A Pseudoroid! Are you in league with Albert?
??? (right): That's right! Call me Argoyle!
??? (left): *grunt*!
Argoyle: And he's my other half, Ugoyle! We will defend this area with our lives!
Model A: I see. So, the computer used to do the hacking is in there!
Argoyle: Do you think you can break through our defenses?
Argoyle: Then come on, Mega Man Model A! Let me show you the way... The way to the netherworld!
Ugoyle: End of the line for you!
(Grey fights and defeats Argoyle and Ugoyle.)
Argoyle: You!... Me!... We're broken!
Argoyle: You managed to win this battle, but you won't survive the war!
(Both Argyole and Ugoyle explode, leaving behind Argoyle's DNA, which Grey absorbs.)
Model A: To leave Pseudoroids standing guard... Albert must really not want anyone to see what's in there.
Grey: I'm sure that computer is this way! Let's go!
(Grey notices a Secret Disk behind a dirt wall.)
Model A: Grey! Take a good look over there! There's something on the other side of that wall. Press the Attack button and Argoyle can throw bombs. Press the other Attack button and release it to summon Ugoyle. Ugoyle can pass through obstacles, and get items behind walls. Press the button you used to summon Ugoyle to make Ugoyle kick. If you time it right, you can have Ugoyle kick a Rock Bomb that Argoyle throws. Also, you can adjust the throw trajectory of the Rock Bombs by pressing Up or Down on the +Control Pad. Rock Bombs are designed to bounce once before exploding, so practice to use this to your advantage.
(Grey gets the Secret Disk and continues until he hears an explosion and the ground shakes.)
Model A: W-Was that the sound of an explosion just now!?
Grey: No way!
(Grey runs through the door and sees Prometheus and Pandora standing next to a destroyed computer.)
Grey: The computer! Were you the ones that did it!?
Prometheus: That's right! We've entered the final stage of the plan... We don't need to hack anymore. But we couldn't just let you go snooping around in there looking for information about yourself either. And we can't let you, who beat 5 Mega Men just retire.
Pandora: The reason we've kept you alive is all part of the plan. Soon it will all be over. The destiny of destruction.
Prometheus: *laugh* Albert, as well as his stupid game are about to be over! As Albert meets his demise!
Grey: The end of Albert!? What do you mean!? What are you going to do!?
Prometheus: I'll tell you when it's all over... Perhaps as you are dying... *evil laugh*
(Prometheus teleports away.)
Pandora: We'll meet again...
(Pandora teleports away as well.)
Grey: W-Wait! Dang! What's happening!?
Mikhail: Wait, what? Those two weren't working for Albert? What about the computer? Is there anything left of it?
(Grey examines the computer.)
Grey: Aw man...
(Grey only finds Data File A.)
Grey: That's it. There's nothing left...
Mikhail: Don't feel so bad. Even without data, you are very real and you exist in this world. The proof is in the fact that they went to so much trouble to keep you from seeing the data. Let's investigate the data we do have on our own. Send it together with your mission report.
(Grey returns to the transerver and sends a mission report along with Data File A.)
Scene 19: The Mysterious Lab
(Grey finds a secret transerver and uses it to teleport to a familiar location.)
Grey: ...Where am I?
(Grey looks around the room.)
Grey: I remember this place. This is the building I first woke up in...
Model A: You were locked up here?
Thomas: If this is where you received your Mega Man preparation, there may be a clue about Albert's plan. Would you have a look?
(Grey goes into the next building.)
Grey: I don't think I've been in this building though...
Model A: OK, let's go check it out!
(Grey continues through the area until he finds a room with two capsules.)
Grey: This is just like the capsule I was in...
Model A: Look at that panel. There's a message.
(Grey examines the panel on one of the capsules.)
???: DAN-001 "PROMETHEUS" TIME REMAINING BEFORE SHUTDOWN FOR RECALIBRATION 246924 SECONDS.
(Grey looks at the second panel.)
???: DAN-002 "PANDORA" TIME REMAINING BEFORE SHUTDOWN FOR RECALIBRATION 246939 SECONDS.
Grey: These are Prometheus and Pandora's capsules! Those two were made here too?
Model A: Maybe they're what the data meant by "Reploid siblings." I bet the first two Mega Men Albert made were Prometheus and Pandora.
Thomas: There's no doubt about it. These capsules are the chains that bound them. So that they wouldn't go against Albert's plan.
Thomas: The counter on the panel is probably Prometheus's life. It's set pretty short. They're made so that they'll die if they don't go back into the capsules for maintenance at regular intervals.
Model A: In order to stay maintained, they have to do what Albert says.
Thomas: It looks like this building goes further in. There may be something left. Keep looking.
(Grey continues through the area until he sees a small yellow Pseudoroid.)
???: Hey, hey, that's as far as you go! Nobody gets past this point! I'm just following Mr. Albert's orders.
Grey: So he's hiding something in here too! Well you're just gonna have to get out of the way!
Hedgeshock: Hey, hey! Do you think you can just ignore me, Hedgeshock!? You've got to face the penalty! A shocking penalty! Mr. Albert's orders are absolute!
(Grey fights and defeats Hedgeshock.)
Hedgeshock: Hey, hey! That kind of strength... is... cheating! It's just like... Mr. Albert's strength! WAAAAH!
(Hedgeshock explodes, leaving behind some DNA, which Grey absorbs. He continues until he finds another empty capsule.)
Grey: Is there only this one capsule?
Model A: But it's empty. There's something showing on this panel, though.
(Grey examines the panel on the capsule.)
???: DAN-000 "PROTOTYPE" FINAL VERSION COMPLETE. START FINAL PHASE.
Grey: There were Mega Men being made even before Prometheus and Pandora? The process is finished and the capsule is open...
Model A: Huh? There's a disk still in this drive!
(Grey picks up the disk, Data File B.)
Thomas: Very good, but all you managed to find is an empty capsule and some incomplete data? There might be some Mega Men that we don't know about. We'll analyze the data here and see what we can find. Send it with your mission report.
(Grey goes through the next door until he comes to a place where the ceiling is too low to continue.)
Model A: The passage up ahead is really low. Crouching looks like the only way to get in. But, with these obstacles in the way, we can't get all the way through. I've got it! Try morphing into Hedgeshock! Then, hold down the +Control Pad and press Dash. That way you can slip under! Hedgeshock's abilities aren't very good on the offensive, so you should avoid using her against enemies. You can shoot balls of electricity by holding down the Attack button and releasing it! Well come on, let's use Rolling Dash to get into that passageway.
(Grey returns to the transerver and sends the mission report along with Data File B.)
Scene 20: Initialization Key
(Thomas contacts Grey after he has sent the last mission report.)
Thomas: It's Thomas. We've succeeded in analyzing a file in the data you found. This is the initialization key for a special transerver. It contains transport coordinate data of some kind. We were able to completely recover it using the data you sent.
(Grey gets the Initialization Key.)
Thomas: Do you remember ever seeing a transerver that hadn't been initialized?
Grey: A transerver that hadn't been initialized?
Thomas: If you find it, use that key. It's the data that had been split in two and guarded so vigilantly. Albert is presumably at the receiving end of that transerver.
Grey: So I can initialize the transerver with this key? OK, I'll give it a try.
(Grey goes to the broken transerver in Biolab Area 3.)
Grey: That's strange... This transerver isn't on.
Transerver: CURRENTLY IN STANDBY MODE... INSERT INITIALIZATION KEY TO RESUME...
Model A: Is this the transerver that Thomas was talking about?
Grey: Yeah, I'll use the initialization key.
(Grey inserts the key into the transerver.)
Transerver: ... ... ... ... ... INITIALIZATION KEY VERIFIED. COORDINATE DATA VERIFIED. SWITCHING TO ACTIVE MODE.
(The transerver activates.)
Model A: Yesss! It worked! I suspect Albert's hideout will be at that transerver destination. Let's make sure we do this right.
(Grey chooses the "Transport" option.)
Model A: Let's go storm Albert's hideout!
Scene 21: Albert's Hideout
(Grey is teleported to an undersea volcano area.)
Model A: Do you feel it, Grey?
Grey: Yeah, I sense something just up ahead. It must be Model W!
(Grey continues until he finds a room full of giant Model Ws.)
Grey: No... All of these are Model Ws!?
???: Hahaha... Are you surprised, Grey?
(Grey runs into the room and sees Master Albert.)
Albert: Do you have any idea how much time I've invested in this plan? Did you think you could foil my plan by destroying one or two of my Model Ws? Not a chance.
(Pandora and Prometheus teleport in, facing Albert.)
Prometheus: We'll see about that.
Grey: Prometheus! Pandora!
Prometheus: So this is where he's been keeping the recovered Model Ws. I never thought you would have found this place for us.
Pandora: Thank you, Mega Man Model A...
Prometheus: How many centuries has it been since we last met like this, Master Albert!? You look even more ridiculous in person than you do on that monitor!
Albert: What do you all think you're doing?
Prometheus: This is what we're doing!
(Prometheus slashes Master Albert with his beam scythe, killing him.)
Prometheus: HA HA HA HA HA! To be defeated by the very first Mega Man you ever made! How fitting, for the scum that you are!
Model A: What the!? What's going on!?
Prometheus: You were being used by us all along. From the day we first awoke, we were Mega Men destined to fight each other... To further Albert's insane plan to create the ultimate Mega Man.
Pandora: So we decided... to take revenge on Albert.
Prometheus: We found many Mega Men and brought them into this fight. We knew that if we were successful, Albert would show up. And then you tracked him down, allowing us to exact our revenge.
Model A: I didn't think this is how the game would end...
Prometheus: *laughter* What are you talking about... It's not over yet...! We're still here. The garbage left behind by that scum!
Pandora: We can't get our old bodies back... We can't change our destiny... So we'll hasten the destiny of destruction...
Prometheus: We will destroy all that Albert made. That is our revenge! So let's have some fun, why don't we!? And go out with a bang!
(Grey fights Prometheus and Pandora and eventually defeats them.)
Grey: That's enough! This fighting is senseless!
Prometheus: That's right... Even you can see that this fight is pointless!
Pandora: Mavericks terrorize humans, and in turn Model Ws absorb that anguish. Albert used Legion as a front to go about selecting Chosen Ones. A world where Mega Men are created to destroy each other all for Albert's satisfaction.
Prometheus: It was all a farce! Albert prepared everything in this world according to his own plan. He said Mega Men are the natural evolution of Man!? Don't make me laugh! What an epic sham! I'm going to demolish this whole wretched world!
(The Model Ws in the background start to glow as large amounts of purple energy are pulled from Prometheus and Pandora's bodies and absorbed into the Model Ws.)
(Prometheus and Pandora fall to the ground and the Model Ws start to hum and vibrate.)
Model A: Hey... could this be...!?
Grey: All of the Model Ws are awake!
(An unknown man teleports in and absorbs the DNA of Prometheus and Pandora.)
???: Prometheus... Pandora... Your centuries of anger... suffering... hate... and insanity along with your battles against other Mega Men have given me the data I need!
Grey: That voice... No way... Master Albert!
Model A: So who was it that Prometheus defeated...!?
Albert: That was a decoy. A dummy body that worked as one of the Sage Trinity in my stead. I am DAN-000, the "Original"... This me is the genuine article, the real Master Albert!
(The room shakes and rocks start falling from the ceiling.)
Albert: Just as I planned! Soon all of the Model Ws will begin to merge! I will become the ultimate Mega Man and the plan will be complete!
Model A: This place won't last long! We need to hurry and get out of here!
Grey: But Prometheus and Pandora...!
Model A: What are you saying!? We can't carry both of them! If you don't make it, who's going to deal with Albert!?
(Grey dashes away.)
Scene 22: The Rise of Ouroboros
(Grey returns to Hunter's Camp and talks to Billy.)
Billy: H-Hey! What's that!?
(The ground shakes as Grey and Billy watch a giant snakelike Mechaniloid rises from the sea into the air.)
Model A: That's all of the Model Ws merged... Ouroboros!
Grey: Albert must be inside! Say, is that airship still at Hunter's Camp!? Take me to it!
Billy: ...There's not even one left. Mavericks destroyed them all.
Model A: There's nothing left we can do!
Aile: No, there is one thing!
(Aile runs up to Grey and Billy.)
Aile: We meet again. There's something I've been wanting to show you. But remember... From here, there's no turning back! I'll be waiting for you here. Call me when you're ready.
(A short time later, Grey talks to Aile again.)
Aile: Things have gotten pretty hectic, haven't they? So that's the ultimate Biometal... Ouroboros. All of the Mavericks that came out of that thing are wreaking havoc. I managed to smash a few of them, but they just keep coming.
(Grey turns around.)
Grey: There aren't anymore airships left... What should we do!?
(Aile points up to the sky.)
Aile: Pull yourself together! Didn't I say there was something I wanted to show you? You want to go and take back your destiny, don't you?
(Grey sees a giant airship.)
Grey: W-What's that...?
Aile: She belongs to me and my crew... She's the Guardian Base! There's only one thing left that we can do... Use the Guardian Base to board Ouroboros. We must take Albert down!
Billy: Hey! Wait!
(Billy and two other Hunters run up to them.)
Billy: You're going after the ringleader, right? Let us have a piece of the action too!
Richard: What do you think the bounty might be on booty that big!? I'm getting excited just thinking about it!
Grey: H-Hey! This isn't some kind of bounty mission...!
Thomas: Oh, yes it most certainly is... An official mission from Legion Headquarters.
(Thomas walks up to the group.)
Grey: Master Thomas!
Thomas: ...How brave you all are... You wouldn't be satisfied unless the mission was official. Legion is having trouble supplying enough manpower to fight the Mavericks. Grey... I'm putting you in charge.
Aile: You want to find something worth protecting, right!? Let's go, follow me!
(Aile, Grey, and the other Hunters run to board the Guardian airship.)
Scene 23: Rematch
(Scene cuts to view the Guardian airship speeding towards Ouroboros.)
Aile: Once we grab a hold onto Ouroboros, expect Mavericks to take to us like flies to you-know-what! It's up to all of you to defend the Guardian Base! We're going home victorious, got it!?
(The airship shakes. Aile and Grey, both Megamerged, run onto the airship's deck with the other Hunters.)
Aile: Grey! You go ahead! I'll handle things here and catch up to you!
Grey: OK! Let's go... Model A!
Model A: OK!
(Grey enters Ouroboros and fights through the area until he comes to a lavishly decorated room.)
Albert: I'd have never guessed that they would come after the Ouroboros in an airship. The ways of those who can't keep up with progress are savage.
(Albert teleports in.)
Albert: By the way, there are some people here to see you. Would you be so kind as to make their acquaintance?
(Albert transforms into Buckfire.)
Buckfire: Traitor Model A... I will destroy you!
(Albert transforms into Chronoforce.)
Chronoforce: *Ha ha ha* I've been waiting to get my revenge.
(Albert transforms into Rospark.)
Rospark: It's so nice to see you again, boy!
(Albert transforms into Queenbee.)
Queenbee: Oh, allow me to give you a proper welcome!
(Albert transforms into Vulturon.)
Vulturon: Back for an encore, are you?
(Albert transforms into Argoyle and Ugoyle.)
Argoyle: We won't be beaten again!
(Albert transform into Hedgeshock.)
Hedgeshock: You've still got a shock coming!
(Albert transforms into Bifrost.)
Bifrost: For your disloyalty to the king, you shall perish!
(Albert transforms back into Albert.)
Model A: A-Trans...!?
Grey: Why do you have the same copy ability as Model A?
Albert: I told you that you were made in my image. But my real power is not in my copy ability. The spirit of everything Model W eats lives on inside me. The power to control all life. That is the power of the ultimate Mega Man. The real A-Trans! They're waiting for you inside with their new bodies. Please go in and play with them. If you can make your way to me, I'll tell you everything, on how, even being incomplete, you can still use A-Trans, and who you really are.
(Albert teleports out. Grey continues until he finds a room full of teleporters. He uses the first one and encounters Vulturon.)
Vulturon: You'll be getting the VIP treatment this time... I have a special requiem for you!
(Grey fights and defeats Vulturon.)
Vulturon: I'm going to retire... Now it's up to you... Carry on with the show... Give 'em a Mega performance...
(Vulturon explodes. Grey continues and encounters Rospark.)
Rospark: I'm so happy to see you again, boy! Show me your beautiful, torn soul!
(Grey fights and defeats Rospark.)
Rospark: Oh... Why... do you refuse...!? Oh... A world with no evolution... no light!
(Rospark explodes. Grey continues and encounters Chronoforce.)
Chronoforce: *Ha ha ha* Shall we being our time of bliss together? I'm going to take my time manhandling you!
(Grey fights and defeats Chronoforce.)
Chronoforce: You can't stop the flow of time! Just let yourself be swallowed by the tidal wave of a new era...!
(Chronoforce explodes. Grey continues and encounters Buckfire.)
Buckfire: *snort* *wheeze*! New king born! New world be born soon! You not needed!
(Grey fights and defeats Buckfire.)
Buckfire: You... broke... law...! Go... and receive... King's... punishment!
(Buckfire explodes. Grey continues and encounters Argoyle and Ugoyle.)
Argoyle: Only those who are loyal to the new king may pass!
Argoyle: There's only one way you're getting through... That's as a sacrifice to the king!
Ugoyle: Meet your end!
(Grey fights and defeats Argoyle and Ugoyle.)
Argoyle: Very well... you may pass... We throw ourselves before your feet...!
(Argoyle and Ugoyle explode. Grey continues and encounters Hedgeshock.)
Hedgeshock: It's my turn! It's my turn! Here I go! Here I go! I'm going to punish you good!
(Grey fights and defeats Hedgeshock.)
Hedgeshock: It's all over! It's all over! Either way... Mr. Albert will get you in the end!
(Hedgeshock explodes. Grey continues and encounters Bifrost.)
Bifrost: When it comes down to it, you're nothing but a small fish in a big pond. So just make it easy on yourself and let me end it for you quick and easy!
(Grey fights and defeats Bifrost.)
Bifrost: Born in the shadow of the king, you can never make a world of light!
(Bifrost explodes. Grey continues and encounters Queenbee.)
Queenbee: There's going to be a great party tonight... You should celebrate with us. A new king has been crowned. It's definitely going to be a night to remember!
(Grey fights and defeats Queenbee.)
Queenbee: Are we reduced to colluding with the evolutionarily inferior...? Hmph!
Scene 24: The Final Battle
(Grey continues through the area until he comes to a long room. Aeolus teleports in front of him.)
Aeolus: You made a foolish choice... You should have stayed away.
(Thetis teleports in behind Grey to block the other exit.)
Thetis: We've got some unfinished business to take care of! I'm not just going to let you waltz out of here!
(Atlas teleports in.)
Atlas: This is as far as you go!
(Siarnaq teleports in.)
Siarnaq: TACTICAL ADVANTAGE, FOUR TO ONE... COMMENCE COMPLETE DESTRUCTION OF TARGET!
Grey: L-listen...! Albert has been using all of you! He was planning to become king all along! So why do you still insist on fighting!?
Aeolus: A mere trifling technicality... The winner out of all of us need only to defeat Albert to become king. Those are the rules that Albert himself laid down.
Grey: Oh... You idiots!
(Aile jumps in next to Grey and charges up, pointing her Buster at Aeolus.)
Aile: I'll take over from here, Grey! You go on ahead!
(Aile fires at Aeolus, who dodges by jumping and hovering in the air. Grey quickly dashes underneath him and escapes.)
Aeolus: Why, you...!
Aile: You have something I want. I need you to hand over all of your Biometals!
(Scene cuts back to Grey as he walks through a room full of flower petals blowing in the wind. He sees Albert sitting on a large throne.)
Albert: I thought you might come right about now... Or should I say I needed you to come. In the end, you've proven that my plan was perfect.
Grey: What do you mean...?
Albert: What? Model A, you haven't told him yet? You should remember everything by now.
Model A: H-Hey! Don't listen to him, Grey! Waste him!
(Albert stands up.)
Albert: *laugh* How cruel you are... Grey, I'll tell you the truth. You are my successor! I made you in my image to be like a son. If anything were to happen to me, this throne would be yours! The ultimate Mega Man I created, that spare body... That was your identity, Grey!
Grey: Me...!? A spare ultimate Mega Man!?
Albert: You see, I created Model A to tell you, the Chosen One, about the plan... A backup system that contains my plan and my knowledge. Model A... In other words, Model Albert.
Model A: I hate that name!
Albert: Don't say that. Soon that name and what it stands for will be gone.
(Albert seems to merge with the throne into a giant three-headed dragon.)
Albert: Now that my plan is finished, you are no longer of use to me... There only need be one ultimate Mega Man... Me!
(Grey fights and eventually defeats the dragon, which explodes, leaving Albert behind.)
Albert: I wanted to know what it meant to be the ultimate... To be at evolution's extreme... as one of the Sage Trinity, but above all as a scientist. At evolution's extreme... there is emptiness and misery. Man will eventually begin to fight again. For peace... for righteousness... Man will continue to find ways to justify fighting. I've come to understand that nothing can come of this world... but an empty, miserable future...
Grey: So, you just decided to make yourself Ruler...!?
Albert: Ruler? No, no, no... Talk about a life of emptiness... I am trying to create a new world. I want to bring new life into the world and protect its future.
Grey: Don't make me laugh! So now you think you're a god or something!?
Albert: I don't THINK I'm a god... I AM a god!
(Albert pulls off his cloak, revealing a faceless, shadowy form. The illusion of a field of flowers and a blue sky starts to break apart like glass, and a blood-red sunset is seen behind. Albert rises into the air as the pieces of the fake sky float toward him, transforming into a large seraph-like form.)
Albert: The world that you live in itself is defective. Before a new world can be made, this world must be reset. That's where the ultimate power of Model W comes in. I have already decided the fate of the world as its god. The destiny of destruction cannot be changed!
Grey: Even if you did make this world, we make our own destiny! I'm going to bring you down and take back my destiny!
Albert: There it is... that empty misery... It disgusts me! That's why I made Mega Men, to evolve! You, who couldn't become a god... You're not even a Mega Man, you're a mere mortal!
(Grey fights and eventually defeats Albert's second form after a long battle.)
Scene 25: Your Own Destiny
(Albert's seraph form is destroyed and he falls to his knees a short distance away from Grey.)
Grey: Yeah, you're right, I am Defective. I'm just a person named Grey. You couldn't even change the destiny of a regular boy like me. This is the destiny that I've chosen... To live together with the people of this world!
Albert: Is that what the "other me" would have said...? Goodbye, ultimate Defective! You can have your gentle peace... and leisurely rot in it!
(Albert explodes. Ouroboros starts to shake.)
Model A: We're in trouble! This flying fortress is going down!
Grey: *pant*... *pant*... This is the end... I'm... getting... tired... Let's hurry... back to... the... oth... ers...
(Model A demerges with Grey, and Grey collapses.)
Model A: Hey... Hey! Grey! Get a hold of yourself! Grey!
(Meanwhile, Aile stands in front of the other four Mega Men.)
Model X: Aile! It's too dangerous here! We have to go help Grey!
Aile: I know... but four against one isn't gonna be easy...!
(Model Z demerges and hovers in front of her, leaving her in Model X form.)
Model Z: ...Go ahead. I'll stay here and hold them back.
Aile: No... What are you talking about!? Don't be crazy, Model Z!
Model Z: No worries, today's not my day to meet my maker.
Model X: Come on, Aile!
Aile: I'm gonna hold you to your word!
(Aile dashes away.)
Aeolus: Such beautiful resolve... To throw away your life for a friend.
Model Z: Like I said, today ain't my day to die...
(The screen flashes, and the four Mega Men collapse.)
Model Z: I know more about Biometals than you.
Thetis: Agh... What!? My... body... feels... heavy... Model L...!
Siarnaq: INCOMPREHENSIBLE...! INCOMPREHENSIBLE...!?
Model Z: Aile, take care of Grey!
(Model Z hovers to the top of the screen and the screen goes white. Later, Grey wakes up in the same room in Hunters Camp from the beginning of the game.)
Grey: Aaaagh! Huh...? Where am I...?
(Grey stands up. Model A hovers in front of him.)
Model A: Grey! You're finally awake! I'm so glad! I was worried sick about you!
Model A: W-What's wrong? Are you still hurt?
Grey: Model A? Worried about someone?
Model A: Y-You got a problem with that!? All I could do was watch and hope. Of course I was worried.
Grey: *laugh* Thank you... Model A.
Model A: Y-Yeah, anyways, let's go outside! Aile's waiting for you!
(Model A joins Grey again. Grey goes outside and sees Aile waiting for him.)
Aile: Are you OK? It was tough carrying you out of there.
Grey: Yeah, what happened to Ouroboros and Model W!?
Aile: Ouroboros went down without a trace. And there's no sign of Model W anywhere. Its wreckage just sank in the ocean... Grey, it's all thanks to you!
Grey: No, it wasn't just me. It was everyone... This world belongs to everyone. Aile, where're you gonna go now?
Aile: I want to go around the world in the Guardian Base... There are a lot of things that need finding. What about you, Grey?
Grey: I haven't really given it much thought... But it is my destiny. I can decide it, right? I want to go on a trip... How far I will go. What I will do. I don't know yet. But I want to find out who I am.
(Model A hovers next to Grey.)
Model A: Hey? So, what am I supposed do?
Aile: That's your destiny, right?
Model A: Oh! Uh, well then... Grey, I wanna go too. Take me with you!
Grey: OK, let's go together, Model A. Let's find our place in the world!
(The two run off as Aile waves goodbye.)
Aile: I hope we'll meet again!
Grey: We can meet anytime... Because this world belongs to us!
(Scene fades to credits.)
Scene 26: Secret Ending (Extreme Mode)
(Thomas and Mikhail stand inside Leigion HQ.)
Thomas: ...To bring new life into the world, eh?
Mikhail: In the last mission report... Albert said some rather outrageous things.
Thomas: Mikhail... Do you think it presumptuous for us to give birth to new life?
Mikhail: How absurd... Thomas, you couldn't possibly hold fast to such foolish imaginings.
Thomas: There are laws that give equality to Humans and Reploids, correct? Don't you remember? Those were passed because Albert and I agreed on them.
Mikhail: W-What are you saying?
(Thomas turns to Mikhail.)
Thomas: Give humans robotic bodies, and give Reploids mortality. So, where do you think the Human bodies for the Reploids are? What do you think happened to the original Reploid data from before we gave them mortality?
(Atlas, Siarnaq, Thetis, and Aeolus teleport in, all Megamerged, and stand beside Thomas.)
Mikhail: Thomas... You...!
Thomas: Albert was wrong, so I helped the Hunters. But I do think he was right about one thing.
(The screen fades to black.)
Thomas: This world needs to be reset.
