We start Final Fantasy IV in the midst of a terrible wrongdoing by none other than... THE RED WINGS! Cecil is the leader of this merciless band of cute little clones who do things such as ask sadistic questions and ANSWER THEMSELVES! These guys are the epitome of "bad-ass" as we can see in the following picture.

<IMG src="http://server5.uploadit.org/files/necronopticous-07.jpg" border="4">

After witnessing the group ruthlessly murder a few senior citizens and steal their bling-bling, Cecil, the lead role in Final Fantasy IV, is faced with groups of monsters that attack the airships because they're monsters; and monsters are mean. Cecil unleashes a variety of attacks that kill any horde of aggressive enemy force in seconds, of course once you get control of Cecil he magically forgets how to do them and never remembers for the remainder of the game.

<IMG src="http://server5.uploadit.org/files/necronopticous-06.jpg" border="4">

Wow, impressive, I guess Cecil just improvised this once, this move would sure come in handy against those damn zombies you face 30 minutes later in the game.

Cecil decides to ask the king why he's being ordered to kill off 70 year old men and women, so naturally, he's "relieved of his command" and given the task of hijacking an airplane and crashing it into the summoner village, oh wait, I mean delivering a package. I swear I always wanted to get the King in my party JUST once so I could go to Namingway and rename him "Osama". You'll want to pay close attention to the advice Kain gives you in the following sequence.

<IMG src="http://server5.uploadit.org/files/necronopticous-05.jpg" border="4">

I'm not sure who or what Kain is really referring to but I have reason to believe it's the priceless information of this man:

<IMG src="http://server5.uploadit.org/files/necronopticous-03.jpg" border="4">

There are a few other people in the castle that will give you information that is important also such as, "Value your life!" Once you're done trying to encode all of this useful information into your long term memory you can continue on to the first appearance of Cecil's side dish, Rosa. If you speed through this scene it's much more touching, but if you take your time with it... Well... Let's have a look.

<IMG src="http://server5.uploadit.org/files/necronopticous-02.jpg" border="4">

I'm not sure weather Cecil should be touched and thank her for being concerned or be totally offended and bash her face in with the side of his helmet. Nonetheless, Cecil knows from EXPERIENCE that there will be rewards for putting up with Rosa's mistranslated dialogue. He goes to sleep on his freshly changed sheets that night like a true bad-ass: In full dark knight AF armor. Dark Knights know no such thing as "comfort", they're soldiers. Anyway, after a pitiful conversation with Rosa and then himself you realize Cecil is like a big teddy bear inside. Either that or just a whining baby with lines like "I'm just a Dark Knight with no courage!"

Before you head off in the morning, be sure to get some inspiration from this local.

<IMG src="http://server5.uploadit.org/files/necronopticous-04.jpg" border="4">

Oh yeah! A big grin will streak across the players face now. A true geek like me will even physically say out loud: "Well GUESS what!? WE ARE A TEAM BEYOTCH!" Unfortunately, however, this guy must have been too lost in his enthusiasm to consider the possibility that the duo would run into a merciless killing machine when they stepped foot out of town.

...Either that or an eagle.

I love Final Fantasy IV, maybe I'll do episode 2. The main problem is that I use a very limited free image host, would anyone be willing to host the images for this if I go on with it?

Okay, so the guy wasn't actually too far off. Kain and Cecil really do make a pretty unstoppable force. In fact, for the next few hours of gameplay, consider yourself to be fighting a formidable opponent if they're able to hit Cecil for more than 2 damage. But this is getting ahead of ourselves, first of all, you have some very important business in the town outside of the castle.

This business consists of walking around and harassing people for taxes as well as showing off that you're a studly Dark Knight. Expect comments such as "Your armor is so dark! Are you a bad guy?" and of course the very believable dialogue of this young lad.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/26.jpg" border="4">

You're going to want to make sure to drop in to see Cid. Okay, actually he's sleeping and you'll only be able to get consistent strings of Z's, ellipses, and something about an engine out of him. But you can meet his daughter who will give a mouthful of words in no particular order "More all night work. He thinks he's young. Town folk speak ill of the soldiers and the king."

Oh, and in case you're ever having an argument with Cid that concerns buoyancy or it's principles, give it up.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/25.jpg" border="4">

Cid's got every end covered; I'll be he'd play a damn good game of Baulderdash... Okay, so before you take off be sure to check for items stashed in trashcans, bushes, and of course, floating in random spots in the water (Spoils from Cid's buoyancy experiments?).

Think of entering the Misty Cave as getting on board an airplane and your weapons as box-cutters. The enemies will be like the passengers and flight staff that resist your hijacking, you can take most of them out with one or two swipes.

I never quite understood this part, appearantly there is an invisible panel here that plays the following sound every time you step on it.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/24.jpg" border="4">

I got stuck on this part for three weeks because I kept doing what it told me to do and I could never figure out why the game wasn't progressing. The trick is to do the <i>opposite</i> of what the recording tells you, tricky stuff.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/23.jpg" border="4">

A monster at the end of a creepy cave full of mist? Not a chance! This question always reminds me of the "dead-f***ing-obvious" questions Steve used to ask the 3-year-olds on the Nickelodeon show, "Blue's Clues".

At this point, you've succeeded in stealing the aircraft. Now it's time to face your final obstacle, DENSE CLOUDS!

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/61.jpg" border="4">

A boss that totally sucks, transforms in 2 minute intervals, and hits you with a strong area attack if you attack it while transformed. Why does this sound so familiar? Anyway, make sure to take great pleasure in killing D.Mist, it's not like you're killing someone's mother or anything.

Once you maneuver through the clouds pilot over to Village Mist.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/21.jpg" border="4">


Congratulations you're now a full-fledged terrorist! Make sure to dispose of any survivors, for instance, this innocent girl.

<FONT face="courier new"><CENTER>Episode III - "The One After Episode II"

At this point in Final Fantasy IV I always like to take a step back and feel really good about all of the great things I've accomplished in the game. Here is a list of some of the highlights so far:</center><ul type="circle">
<li>Ruthlessly murdered old men and women.
<li>Stole jewels.
<li>Got fired.
<li>Harrassed town folk.
<li>Wallowed in self-pity.
<li>Killed a little girl's mother.
<li>Set the little girl's town on fire.
<li>Slashed the little girl with a sword, putting her into a coma.
<center>You're shaping up to be one hell of a hero! And to think, you're only about 20 minutes into the game. Anyway, when the little girl awakens from her coma, Cecil forces her to tell him her name. She agrees and decides to become his sidekick and help him out on his adventures. Just the reaction you'd expect from her, right? Of course.

Before heading out go visit your mysteriously dying girlfriend.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/16.jpg" border="4">

From the looks of her emotionally charged dialogue, you can tell her mysterious lethal sickness is bad news! If you ever want Rosa to say anything beside "Mmm..." again, you had better do some research, and fast. You can start at this bookshelf.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/15.jpg" border="4">

Well would you look at that, what luck! The title of the first book you set your eyes on tells you EXACTLY what you need to cure your girlfriend. If only all things in life were this cheesy... I mean easy.

Before rushing out to get the cure for Rosa I suggest you make a few important story-progressing stops. First of all you're going to want to put your hands into the fireplace before leaving the house.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/17.jpg" border="4">

OUCH! FIRE BAD! That must have been how Rydia's friends and family felt when you torched them in their sleep.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/18.jpg" border="4">

I've always questioned this guy's sexuality, I don't know why...

Once you've had enough of this town head for the cave to the northwest. Don't worry about catching desert fever like Rosa, she's the only one in the game that's allowed to catch it. You can thank the stupidity of the hypothetical illness for that one.

Appearantly killing off everything in Rydia's life wasn't enough for Cecil. He'll constantly let her get knocked out in battle and just laugh about it as everything that kills her in one hit takes a whopping 1 damage from him.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/14.jpg" border="4">

Tellah, the senior citizen, will notice Cecil's fascinating ability to take 1 damage from every aggressive monster on the planet and demand that he help defeat the big ugly monster at the end of the cave. You're supposed to believe that Tellah has amnesia but that was just a cheap excuse to make it so you could only use crappy ass spells.

No one seems to feel uncomfortable at the fact that the cave is infested with decomposing corpses that are somehow magically alive and trying to kill you. I guess it's no big deal, just use Tellah's crappy Fire 1 to take them all out. Rydia is basically useless because she's still scared of fire, aww poor baby. I guess it doesn't matter, if a gust of wind blows her too hard she'll fall down knocked out.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/60.jpg" border="4">

Pay no attention to Octomamm's freaky soul-piercing eyes and take him out with a few swipes and Bolts. CAREFUL, believe it or not he can actually hit Cecil for more than 1 hp per turn *gasp*


<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/13.jpg" border="4">

This scene would be a lot more tragic if the dead guys were actually dead. Appearantly these were those new bombs that, instead of killing people, make them constantly state the obvious.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/12.jpg" border="4">

And then there is this guy...

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/11.jpg" border="4">

For some reason I was expecting more of a "HOLY F***ING SH** HELP ME, AHHHHHH MY LEGS, I CAN'T FEEL MY F***ING LEGS!" response when I talked to this guy. What was I thinking? Obviously losing profuse amounts of blood and being on the verge of death after a firey explosion would make any person in their right mind want to enthusiastically give hints to healthy passerbys.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/09.jpg" border="4">

Okay, it would REALLY suck to see the castle your daughter is in get bombed. However, it would REALLY REALLY suck if you found out she was the ONLY person that died in the bombing. It might even make you mad enough to let all of your anger out on the guy who brought her there. This is why the following scene constantly goes down as the most vulgar scene in any video game to date.

CAUTION: The following screenshot may be too vulgar for young readers. You have been warned.

I love how you didn't use "You spoony bard" which had actually caught me rather of guard since it seemed so obvious that it would be there.

Hilarious. Truly hilarious.

"Watch out terrorists, it's George W. Bush! I mean Titan!"

This series is pure class. Very nice, Necronopticous.

I'm guessing it's based on the original "Easytype" version of FFIV? I've seen a few differences to the Anthology version I've played.

11-05-2004, 09:01 AM
Yes, it's based on Easytype AKA Final Fantasy 2

11-05-2004, 02:39 PM

They're getting better and better!


11-05-2004, 08:59 PM
FF2US is NOT FFIV Easytype. Easytype is even more dumbed down and has a different sprite for Zeromus.

<FONT face="courier new"><CENTER>Episode IV - "If only he were as smart as he is weak"

Well, as you can clearly tell from the climax of the last episode, Tellah is too angry to continue traveling with you. But his leaving really goes to show you... With the loss of every angry old man with amnesia comes a vehicle that allows you to cross water that has three pointy rocks sticking out.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/08.jpg" border="4">

Well, we'd all really like to get to stopping the evil Golbez and his Republican Wings, but first thing's first, we have to save Rosa from the evil clutches of the horrible desert fever! I think desert fever was supposed to symbolically suggest that she slept around with members of the Taliban.

Once you reach the lair of Antlion you'll realize that Edward does exactly the same thing as Rydia in battle. Gets knocked out continuously. Best to just hack away with Cecil and let the two useless weaklings stay dead until the end.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/59.jpg" border="4">

Since Edward has been dead since the very first enemy encounter in the cave, he'll have to remind you at the very end that you're in the lair of Antlion. Well thanks for the info Captain Obvious.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/58.jpg" border="4">

I guess the idea was to show you that Edward is just like pretty boy singers nowadays. Completely and totally clueless.

Well I guess Antlion is tame if your definition of tame is big red aggressive freaky horned cockeyed beasts that want to devour you with a gross looking toothed oriface in their face.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/57.jpg" border="4">

If Final Fantasy IV had voice acting they would have definately gotten Mr. T to play Antlion. YES he's THAT aggressive. Anyway, surprise surprise If you sit there guess how much damage Antlion will do to Cecil? That's right, 1 hp. Guess how much he'll do to Rydia and Edward? If you said 5 gazillion you're absolutely correct. If you decide to actually attack Antlion, be prepared, he counters with a move that does exactly the same thing that takes 1 hp, but for some reason it takes like 30 hp, even from Cecil. That's right, a 2900% increase.

Call Chocobos and slice Antlion while drinking potions like a freak until he's defeated. Before heading out you'll have a nice informative talk amongst yourselves.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/56.jpg" border="4">

This must be one of Cecil's special abilities he was taught in Baron's Dark Knight training program: The ability to answer someone's question with a phrase that is totally unrelated without anyone realizing it.

Classmate: Hey Cecil, what's the square root of 8?
Cecil: There is a bed in my room.
Classmate: Ah! Got it, thanks man!

After you're finished here, head back to town to save Rosa!

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/55.jpg" border="4">

There's something wrong with this picture. I thought the idea of curing her was so I didn't have to listen to this crap anymore?

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/54.jpg" border="4">

I'm sorry. For my. Overuse. Of the period. Now who are you sleeping with!? I always sensed such a jealous overtone to this conversation. I also always get the feeling Rosa just made up this whole damn illness. Maybe it's the "I'm-so-not-a-real-sickness" symptoms, maybe it's the fact that rubies don't cure sicknesses, even if they are guarded by aggressive sand-beasts.

Or maybe it's just the horrible job Rosa does at fake-coughing after she's already "cured"

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/53.jpg" border="4">

If you don't really hate Edward, well... You should. Square knew this, and decided that if he's going to persist as a character in the game something HAS to be done. Therefore you get a useless scene to basically illustrate that Edward plays such bad music it is capable of killing foul demons.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/52.jpg" border="4">


<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/51.jpg" border="4">

Kill the BushHag!

I find it funny that of the two characters on screen beside Edward, only one comes from the water, and that's Anna. "I believe in you Edward! Your music is so horrible it does physical damage to the enemy and occasionally lulls them to sleep!"

Maybe it wasn't the bombings that killed Anna afterall...

(Can't think of anything witty or clever.)

<FONT face="courier new"><CENTER>Episode V - "The Empire Strikes Back"

Well, Edward and his overwhelming stupidity have been stealing the spotlight and Cecil doesn't like it, not one little bit. So in order to get things back to normal he breaks us in with another classic moment of emotionally tormenting Rydia.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/50.jpg" border="4">

"fire" must be that new lingo meaning "terrorist attack that I, myself, committed"

Now that Rosa has been "saved" and Edward has proven his manliness to his dead girlfriend and killed a rabid BushHag it's finally time to stop Golbez! FIRST STOP... uhh... A mountain... With a karate man on top... and some bombs.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/49.jpg" border="4">

This karate man will be a great asset to your team due to his permanently inflamed nasal passages that allow him to sneeze on his foes at will. As soon as you meet him you'll be forced into a boss battle against MomBomb.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/46.jpg" border="4">

I'm guessing the idea behind this hideous beast's name was that he/she's the "mother of all bombs" although the name doesn't really suggest that at all. MomBomb can be tough if you don't put Yang's ancient mucus technique to good use. Covering Mombomb with snot is an assured win in this battle. A flying dragon kick couldn't hurt either.

Yang begins his emotionally moving story about how his training buddies were just murdered by bombs but Cecil, being the complete and total asshole that he is, uses his famed "this-has-nothing-to-do-with-what-you're-saying" phrase technique.

"My friends and I were ambushed and..."
"Yeah, cool, whatever, we're going to Fabul"

Cecil is already scared of losing the focus of the story progression again to the karate master Yang so he makes a pre-emptive blow at Rydia this time.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/47.jpg" border="4">

Cecil doesn't want Yang to be any more important than himself although he does realize that Yang has great (and unusual) powers and thus forces him to join the party. Yang is told that, if he refuses, Cecil will hold him down and spray decongestant in his nostrils rendering his lifetime of nasal-kung-fu training utterly useless.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/45.jpg" border="4">

After you're finished on the mountain, head to Fabul as you originally planned. You can do lots of interesting things in Fabul that no person in their right mind would want to pass up. Start out by talking to this young man:

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/42.jpg" border="4">

Sounds like a great idea little fella, however... It would be of a little help if you explained just who in the hell you were talking about you randomly violent little son of a...

Next pay a visit to Yang's wife

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/43.jpg" border="4">
<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/44.jpg" border="4">

Ah... Just the response I expected.

Anyway, if you're feeling spent you can catch some Z's in the least likely of places.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/41.jpg" border="4">

This speaker of this troublemaking piece of dialogue insisted that he/she remain anonymous. My money is on Cecil, that bastard.

After you're done causing trouble in Fabul, go have a chat with the King.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/40.jpg" border="4">

I don't see how this King gets anything accomplished responding to everything he discovers by screaming "Truly!?" at the top of his lungs. No, we were just pulling your leg King, you fell for it.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/39.jpg" border="4">

Why bother? I'm pretty sure Cecil could hold off any enemy force with his spelling and grammar mistakes alone.

After an intense battle against the invading enemy force, the team is forced to the last stronghold to protect the crystal from Golbez, the crystal room itself. Kain will now make his first appearance since the terrorist attack at Village Mist.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/38.jpg" border="4">

Playing through this scene is almost like playing Final Fantasy IV on a foreign rom, you just kind of have to put together what's happening through the pictures rather than the text because it's completely nonsensical.

And just when you thought it couldn't be worse.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/37.jpg" border="4">

Stunning entrance. Chills my bones every time I see it.

Well, needless to say, Kain bitchslaps Cecil, takes the crystal and also kidnaps Rosa. After all of the things that Cecil's already accomplished I'm not even impressed.

Before Golbez and his gang left with their loot they tortured the King of Fabul by reading off a whole list of fun facts. The King now suffers from severe laryngitis. The Queen thinks he may never be able to scream "Truly!?" ever again. But she does show great confidence in the King's ability to overcome it.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/devilmaykickass/ffvii/36.jpg" border="4">

Hmm, actually I take back what I just said. I'm not so sure this is confidence, it could just be bad writing...

Yeah... Bad writing.

The whole point here is making fun of FFIV's ridiculous translation. FFVI didn't have a ridiculous translation, so it wouldn't work.

11-16-2004, 12:41 AM
I believe he meant where is VI as in where is episode VI, and FFVI did have a rather sub-par "son of a submariner" translation, but it wasn't nearly as bad or spoofable as this (some parts are, however).

<FONT face="courier new"><CENTER>Episode I - "Affirmative Action is going to be all over this"

The King of Fabul is officially put down, so as you probably already guessed, you'll be getting a slick new ride. This time you don't have to have three rocks sticking out of the water to pass.

And so, it's time once more to head off in no particular direction until you run into trouble again. Before you leave Yang will share some touching dialogue with his wife.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/66.jpg" border="4">

Yeah, I think it's safe to assume Yang never gets any.

Anyway, the crew of dwarf clones is utterly fascinated with Cecil for some reason and the Captain even offers his personal welcome to you.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/65.jpg" border="4">

Feat eh?... I wonder if he's talking about how you just failed to protect the kingdom of Fabul? Or maybe he's a sadist that has heard about how much abuse you dish out to Rydia on a regular basis?

I suppose he could be referring to any of the <i>wonderful</i> things Cecil has done so far in the game... Uh oh! Looks like trouble!

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/64.jpg" border="4">


I think there's trouble... Umm, What does that exclaiming sentence even mean? It seems to be a question although it's just a loud, assertive remark.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/63.jpg" border="4">

Oh, Leviathan, king serpent of the seas, right. Okay so there is trouble, glad that's cleared up.

After Leviathan decides to attack you for no reason you'll all be hurdled from the ship. Cecil is somehow trajected into the air where he travels miles in a southward direction conveniently placing him right next to the town that progresses the story and leaving him teamless so that he can have spies in his party without breaking the 5 member team limit. Very slick.

Cecil is speechless at the situation. Well, almost.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/62.jpg" border="4">

Funny, I was thinking the <i>same</i> thing.

So just where is it that Cecil lands? Well, you've been here before in the game, except last time you were offing old guys. Anyway, the place isn't too thrilled about you being back and they do all kinds of nasty things to you.

This includes poisoning you,

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/35.jpg" border="4">

Turning you into a pig (and laughing about it with incremental pauses),

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/67.jpg" border="4">

And worst of all, confusing you with really, really bad game translation.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/34.jpg" border="4">

Hmm, something tells me he doesn't understand.

The following conversation that takes place with the elder is basically impossible to understand but luckily, again, you can sort of make it out from what happens.

You'll be assigned two helpers (spies!) to assist you in becoming a Paladin. If you succeed they'll totally forgive you for killing their citizens and stealing their most prized possession, sounds like a deal!

Make your way out of town and up the mountain to get started on your task. Half way up you'll meet up with an old friend, Tellah! He's still pissed off but since you only have 3 out of 5 spots in your party filled he joins you - and its a good thing he does otherwise you might not suspect that you'd have to fight a boss at the top of the mountain.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/33.jpg" border="4">

You have to be pretty damn evil for someone to physically feel your evilness.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/32.jpg" border="4">

OH NO It's the bush hag again! Oh wait, scratch that.

After casually introducing himself and shaking your hands, Milon will initiate battle with you and magically have undead zombies fighting alongside him.

Dispatch the mysterious zombies before you go for Milon as they'll eat your brains if you don't kill them. After you do enough damage to Milon he'll use his "12 Periods in a Single Textbox" attack.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/31.jpg" border="4">

After you defeat Milon walk 4 steps and you'll fight another boss.

Milon, again. Very exciting stuff. Beat him again and he'll tell you that you did so.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/30.jpg" border="4">

After this its all downhill, literally. Cecil becomes a paladin and swears he will never be such an asshole ever again, Tellah spontaneously remembers all of his spells, and the group returns together for a warm welcome.

Well, it didn't work for Michael Jackson, but Cecil is sure getting a good response from going dark to light. This black mage is so excited he decides to exclaim the obvious.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/29.jpg" border="4">

(Is that true!)

12-05-2004, 05:52 AM
While this thing was insanely funny, the coversation between the elder and Cecil wasn't at all confusing.

Cecil: I must hurry!
Elder: I do understand.
But do not hurry.

What is so confusing about that? Cecil lets the elder know that he needs to hurry, and the elder is saying that he understands why Cecil would be in a hurry, but is letting him know that being in a hurry is a bad idea here because haste generally makes waste.

Also, this is from the first episode:

Cecil unleashes a variety of attacks that kill any horde of aggressive enemy force in seconds, of course once you get control of Cecil he magically forgets how to do them and never remembers for the remainder of the game.

No, he doesn't forget. "Litbolt" and "Firebomb" are items, not skills, and you do get them in Japanese version. Also, you can use a Game Genie for the US version (FFII) and buy things from stores called "Dummy", and all that these mysterious "dummy" items are. They are items originally from FF4 that were omitted to make the game more simple. Some other items include the Smut, and the various healing items. For example, there used to be eyedrops for blind, echo screen for silence, mallet for mini, and so forth. But when we got the game, they condensed them all into "Heal", because it would be too complex for our fragile American brains....

Oh my god, I'm so lame because I point out dumb stuff like that. I swear, I really just need to shut the f**k up every now and then. My bad.

Don't forget that there couldn't have possibly been references to the terrorist attacks on the world trade centers either, and there isn't any monster in Final Fantasy IV called a <b>Bush Hag</b> (*see image), and that Cecil doesn't actually try to kill Rydia in Village Mist after she survives the package.

I don't think "Ah, The Power of Cheese" means to be a very accurate account of the events in Final Fantasy IV, although that's just my opinion.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/80.jpg" border="4">

I admit, discarding your old ways and becoming a Paladin was pretty awesome but I don't know if it merits exclaiming and questioning a double set of ellipses.

I don't know if it's just me, but I'd expect this "legendary sword" to be pretty damn good, but of course, a little while later you'll be buying a sword whose power doubles this one from some town weapon shop.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/79.jpg" border="4">

Hmm, I feel sort of uncomfortable taking advice from a town elder who willingly admits he knows absolutely nothing about anything. He should give himself more credit, after all, he's a master of being badly translated.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/78.jpg" border="4">

Before actually taking the Serpent Road talk to this guy:

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/77.jpg" border="4">

It's easy to do something for an undefined amount of time purposely given with no reference points. In this guy's logic, I also just wished ever since, therefore I am still not impressed with the knowledgeless elder.

After you take the Serpent Road you'll find yourself all the way back at Baron, talking to the townsfolk will give you hints at where you should go. The clues are subtle and slight, for example: "There is a karate man in the Inn"

Upon entering the Inn, you'll find Yang, surprise, surprise.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/76.jpg" border="4">

You'll have to face Yang and his two henchmen in battle, but if you think a plot twist is coming, think again.

Yang is a weakling and goes down easily, especially with the help of Tellah's newly remembered spells, but nothing is going to stop him from telling you to Shut up! before you put him down.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/75.jpg" border="4">

That includes the fact that you didn't even say anything...

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/73.jpg" border="4">

And the award for worst possible grammar and diction goes to... Tellah!

After properly catching up and reuniting with Yang in the Inn, head for the very convenient secret waterway into the castle. Upon reaching the castle you'll be greeted by Baigan the Cheif Guard of Baron who will also join your party.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/72.jpg" border="4">


<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/71.jpg" border="4">

The only thing fishy is that getting Baigan in your team would mean that you'd have 6 members where 5 are only allowed in the engine of the game. So naturally, he turns into a boss monster. Rawwr.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/70.jpg" border="4">

After you kill Baigan you'll get the opportunity you've been waiting for since the beginning of the game, finally being able to confront the King of Baron to give him a piece of your mind.

Okay, save your breath, he's going to turn into a boss monster too.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/69.jpg" border="4">

You see? I don't want to say I told you so but...

Well, I guessed that the King would turn into a boss monster but never in my wildest dreams did I envision it being such an ugly one. Kainazzo is, hands down, the most horrendous looking creature Final Fantasy IV has to offer. Get your fill of his ugliness now because in after a couple lit-3's he'll be put down for good.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/68.jpg" border="4">

...But not without a last attempt to squash you on your way out of the throne room. Luckily Palom and Porom are there to sacrifice their lives to save you by casting stone on themselves. Soft would cure any other case of petrification but doesn't for this one. That's due to the um.... the fact that there is no reason. But rest assured, you can't heal them, reason or not.

Oh, and in case you were wondering if the King of Baron's dissapearance counts as the loss of an elderly man.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/28.jpg" border="4">

It does.

(If I don't get institutionalized from having recurring night terrors about Kainazzo)

Final Fantasy IV is my favorite game off all time. I played through the original english translation countless time. What you have done with the original American version is great! Keep them coming!

12-13-2004, 07:07 AM
About the "Let's sleep in the King's bed!" line: in FFIIIj, when you go to the top of Princess Sara's tower in Sassoon Castle, you can walk up to Sara's bed and, er...put delicately, your righteous noble Light Warriors do some serious shakin' around during the night. So I'd assume that the thing about sleeping in the King's bed was a tip-off to FFIIIj's corresponding scene, but it shouldn't have been there for two reasons:
(1) Since Square never translated FFIIIj anyway, the scene in FFIV has no context and is just nonsensical. If the American audience knew that it was a tip-off, things would've made more sense.
(2) If the Light Warriors in FFIIIj were giving themselves a good time in the bed of a pretty girl, and Cecil is apparently supposed to be doing it in the bed of an old guy...ew, I don't wanna think about the implications there.

12-13-2004, 03:50 PM

He does indeed resemble a mop. Which is why he's so useful.

I mean, his skills as a magic user can't be matched, and when he's dead, he doubles as a mop, capable of soaking up the toughest spills. Fusoya's mop-esque appearence is not without reason.

Honestly, do you look anything like a mop when you're passed out? I think not.

more i say!

your comics have been one of the few things that haven't failed to make me laugh during this very difficult and depressing time i'm going through this winter.

yours as well as a certain fanfiction i read on another site... not sure if the author is on here, and i'd have to put proper credit, but its a parody on FFIV, really hysterical.

anyways... more cheese please! :D

No, he doesn't forget. "Litbolt" and "Firebomb" are items, not skills, and you do get them in Japanese version. Also, you can use a Game Genie for the US version (FFII) and buy things from stores called "Dummy", and all that these mysterious "dummy" items are. They are items originally from FF4 that were omitted to make the game more simple. Some other items include the Smut, and the various healing items. For example, there used to be eyedrops for blind, echo screen for silence, mallet for mini, and so forth. But when we got the game, they condensed them all into "Heal", because it would be too complex for our fragile American brains....

Oh my god, I'm so lame because I point out dumb stuff like that. I swear, I really just need to shut the f**k up every now and then. My bad.


Hmmm, I guess my rom must be translated then, cause I definitely have luck mallet's, diet food, echo herbs, etc... It is EXTREMELY annoying against enemies that have "Bad Breath"... :mad: Every status in the book except the good ones. And a turn for each one. Those stupid dinosaur things guarding the ribbon used it, but I reflected it back onto them! :D

<FONT face="courier new"><CENTER>Episode III - "Rated R for Ridiculous"

Just as soon as you get comfy in your new ride, you'll be approached by Kain, still under thr control of Golbez. Cecil is informed that if he ever wants to see Rosa again he must obtain the earth crystal and hand it over.

Frightened by the thought of never seeing his girlfriend again, Cecil does what any one of us would. He goes to the town led by dozens of scantly clad women and home to the only brothel in the world, the great Toroia.

As would be expected, there are lots of interesting people in this town. Some of the highlights include the famed "bad grammar warning guy":

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/98.jpg" border="4">

The "Hmm, I wonder if TwinHarps will be essential to the story in the near future" girl:

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/95.jpg" border="4">

And the filthy old pervert:

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/94.jpg" border="4">

After you're done introducing yourself to the ladies walking around town (and skinny dipping in the lake) head to the whorehouse.

The Toroian whorehouse, referred to by its codename "Cafe" is one of the most interesting locations in the whole of Final Fantasy IV. I'll let the following images speak for themselves.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/93.jpg" border="4">

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/92.jpg" border="4">

One of the prostitutes will offer you a mysterious "pass" for a whopping 10,000 gil. For Cecil's sake, raise the money. This is Cecil's only chance in the game to receive questionable favors from the "showgirls"

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/91.jpg" border="4">


Well, after you've satisfied Cecil's raging libido head to the strangely placed Black Chocobo farm in the brothel's basement. Be sure to read the headline posted to the wall.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/96.jpg" border="4">

And if that doesn't do it for you, perhaps the near phonetically impossible noise that Black Chocobos make will.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/97.jpg" border="4">

When the signs of bad translation show even in the random noises of farm animals in your video game, that's pretty bad news.

Anyway, once you're all done in town head for the castle.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/90.jpg" border="4">

You might be wondering if you missed something. Perhaps a background on this mysterious elf who is evil by nature and decided to steal the earth crystal.

The story of Dark Elf is as follows: He is a mysterious elf who is evil by nature and decided to steal the earth crystal. Trying to understand may spontaneously cause your head to explode. My advice is to not even bother.

Instead, go visit Edward!

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/89.jpg" border="4">
<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/88.jpg" border="4">

If you're thinking something along the lines of "What!?" then you're way ahead of yourself. Just <i>wait</i> until Cid opens his mouth.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/87.jpg" border="4">

This is what you would get at a restaurant if you ordered the "Irrelevent Textbox, (hold the sense.)"

Well, if you hadn't guessed, its time to catch a Black Chocobo and fly to the Dark Elf's cavern to retrieve the stolen earth crystal. Make sure to equip yourself with wooden armor and weapons so that you won't be affected by the magic-metal barrier that the Dark Elf created.

On a tangent, as it has went unsaid long enough.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/86.jpg" border="4">

VampGirls are <B><FONT color="RED">HOT</FONT></B>

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/85.jpg" border="4">

Oh yeah, Dark Elf is also a robot who speaks in all caps.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/84.jpg" border="4">

...while disregarding the more basic rules of semantics.

He might not be the most gramatically correct boss, but he never fails to wipe you out on his first couple of turns. Luckily, Edward's horrible music pulls through for you again.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/83.jpg" border="4">

That's right, it's so terrible that it disrupts magnetism and allows you to equip all of your metal weapons again. Take the opportunity to destroy Dark Elf and obtain the earth crystal!

But wait... Dark Elf seems to have more tricks up his sleeve!

Great indeed. Now that you've retrieved the Earth Crystal from Dark Elf you have everything you need to get Rosa back from the evil clutches of Golbez.

Meet Kain!
the airship!
To make the trade! Great!

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/115.jpg" border="4">

Oh no! The entire Red Wings clone crew has been turned into BushHags! If you don't want Rosa to suffer the same fate, you had better do what Kain says.

After ascending into the clouds alongside Kain's airship you'll somehow magically be inside a tower.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/114.jpg" border="4">

Ignore the impossible nature of the situation and press on.

(Cue evil lighting)

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/113.jpg" border="4">

Uh oh! It appears Golbez not only has Kain under control but Yuna from Final Fantasy X as well!

The following boss battle can be tough if you don't dispatch the sisters in the following order:

Fat one >> Short one >> Sexually suggestive one

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/112.jpg" border="4">

The magus sisters never suspect that you know to kill off the obese one first, thus, they never fail to be surprised when you win the fight.

Hurry on, Golbez is just ahead!

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/111.jpg" border="4">



Wait... Golbez was always on the bad guy side, not quite a traitor... Okay ignore that textbox!

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/110.jpg" border="4">

Nobody calls Tellah an old man and gets away with it!

Well... at least not without saying GRRR......

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/106.jpg" border="4">

Unfortunately this is the end of Tellah, and while you might think that there is some deep symbolic significance or importance in his death, there isn't. You see, you're about to get Kain back on your team and rescue Rosa. This would make 6 members on your team, you get where this is going.

Speaking of rescuing Rosa.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/104.jpg" border="4">

Cozy? Don't you mean SEXY? Two characters in one sprite, now that's what I call hot.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/103.jpg" border="4">

Green lights AND hyphen-delimited syllabled laughter. This can only mean one thing.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/102.jpg" border="4">

A boss in a bikini!

No fears, with Kain back this fat-assed-less-than-half-dressed-horizontal-lightning-bolt-shaped-crack-for-eyes wench hardly poses a threat. But not even Kain's physics defying jump ability can rid you of Cid's reaction to a dangerous situation.

<FONT face="courier new"><CENTER>Episode V - "What?"

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/100.jpg" border="4">

Well, normally Rosa would deserve a "thanks!" and "good job!" but since half of the game has been saving her from the stupid situations she manages to get herself into, it's not necessary.

Well, if you've been waiting for some of questions that the game has opened up to be answered, the next scene will, at the very least, confuse you into thinking you just got some those answers.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/99.jpg" border="4">

Basically what Cid is trying to say tell you is that you need to drop a key made out of solidified magma down a bottomless well in order to open the way to the underworld.

In Cid's logic 'so to speak' we can also assume that his earlier outburst of "Wooow!" probably meant something along the lines of "There is a dog in my coffee"

You've got your path set out for you, since there is only one bottomless well in the world, however, if I were you I would spend some time around the town. You can start at the bookshelves in the observatory:

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/117.jpg" border="4">
<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/118.jpg" border="4">

It is sounding like very insight!

Okay, just one more stop, do yourself a favor and talk to... him:

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/27.jpg" border="4">

Um, no comment.

Drop the key in the well already!

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/139.jpg" border="4">


<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/140.gif" border="4">

Something tells me that dropping the key down the well would not result in this outcome but what the hell, right? Let's enter.

Just two seconds after you've entered the underworld you'll already encounter your first chunk of trouble.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/136.jpg" border="4">
<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/135.jpg" border="4">
<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/134.jpg" border="4">

Unfortunately, the Enterprise doesn't hold out, not even through improperly exclaimed bursts of shouting. But not to worry, Cecil has a genius solution to the predicament.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/133.jpg" border="4">


<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/132.jpg" border="4">

In case you were wondering...

Before going to meet King Giott, collect the following classic textbox on the left wing of the castle:

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/138.jpg" border="4">

OH! And just when you thought my logic was failing!

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/137.jpg" border="4">

I love being right.

Anyway, Giott turns out to be a very fine dwarf. Friendly and helpful, I wonder if he's got an ogrish one?

All is well until *gasp* the time when all is not well!

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/131.jpg" border="4">


The new and improved Yang with super extra-sensory powers! Now capable of feeling the act of someone listening in on your conversation. Take advantage of Yangs amazing power and head for the crystal room to face the eavesdroppers!

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/128.jpg" border="4">

Regardless, now that you have Rosa's healing power restoring your team every turn Calbrena will go down in no time. Unfortunately, the trouble is far from over...

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/127.jpg" border="4">

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/123.jpg" border="4">

Oh no! Hold gas!

Golbez doesn't like to play fair and now you're totally defenseless to him! Why didn't he use this unstoppable move every other time you've come into contact with him? Could it be that he, himself realizes what an embarassingly dumb name it has?

Golbez calls upon his evil shadow dragon and sadistically watches as it devours your helpless party one by one... Just when all hope seems to be lost-

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/122.jpg" border="4">

Rydia saves the day!

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/121.jpg" border="4">

Doesn't surprise me that Cecil takes some of the credit for Rydia summoning and killing Golbez single handedly...

It also doesn't surprise me that the first thing he tries to do afterward is use a "yo mama" joke on Rydia:

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/120.jpg" border="4">

Rydia has truly grown, she is finally able to stand up to Cecil's relentless torment.

With Rydia back, the crystal safe, and Golbez defeated, it's truly a great day in the world of Final Fantasy IV!

Golbez is obviously one tough cookie, but I don't think anyone expected him to have the power to survive solely through his severed hand. Not only does he continue to live through it, he also displays that he is able to talk with it, walk with it, dim the lights in the room with it, and worst yet: steal the crystal and dissapear with it!

This sounds like a really great idea, but it's really your only option since there is absolutely no where else you can go in the underworld on foot.

Once you're gotten your fill of dwarves head off toward the Tower of Bab-il.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/162.jpg" border="4">

*Screenshot not pictured to scale!

The Tower of Bab-il is exactly like the Tower of Zot making it highly uninteresting to go through, however, at the end you will get to face off against Dr. Frankenstein and his Monster so hang in there!

You said it!

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/159.jpg" border="4">

What? Did you think I was kidding about this? I wouldn't get your hopes up for nothing. Don't be frightened by the appearance of this boss, after all, the battle is easier than it would be for Mary Shelley to sue Squaresoft.

To avoid a lawsuit, in Final Fantasy IV, Dr. Frankenstein magically turns into a mechanical skeleton that likes to poison you.

But just when you think you've bested the rip off, he's got another cliché up his sleeve!

Dwarves, Biblical towers, Frankenstein, Robot Skeletons, and Super Cannons all in a half hour of gameplay.


<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/154.jpg" border="4">

Silly girl, dwarves are always in danger. They're dwarves! You had better hurry and stop the cannon anyway, Giott was a nice guy after all.

I think it's safe to say Cecil just got moated.

The good thing is that whenever someone says there is absolutely no way to do something in an RPG it usually means it is entirely possible, and about to happen.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/150.jpg" border="4">

Even if it means someone had to sacrifice themselves. *gasp*

Just beat the game for the first time this evening. This was very funny before, and now, it's hilarious. ^^

Thanks for the awesome commentary.

01-16-2005, 03:29 AM
Ted Woosley always makes for bad translations.

You REALLY can't compare what Woolsey did to what the FFIV translation team did. Woolsey's script was intelligable and coherent. Doing a FFVI parody would be about 3 panels long, and consist of Kefka calling Edgar a "son of a submariner!" Locke stealing some poor bum's clothes, and Celes contemplating how fun it would be to jump off a cliff. There, I just gave you the entire thing.

Since this if full of other requests, I would love to see one on how horrible FFVII is. Someone could make it on the monsters alone.

Get me a PS emulator that can take screens and I'll do it.

01-16-2005, 01:01 PM
Hmmm, you should probarly do it about FFI too. That has more stupid translationmistakes. Oh, and I love the new episode.

01-16-2005, 08:40 PM
Great new episode, as usual. I don't think FFVI translation was that bad. You'd be limited to at most 10 bad translations if you wanted to do an FFVI parody, and that's not much. I have a PSX emulator and FF7 PSX, and I could take screenshots, but I don't think FF7 translation was that bad overall. The script is huge there, 300-400+ pages for merely dialogue, so if there's one page worth of typos, that's still less than one percent of the game. And those tlansrations were fixed in the PC version anyway.

Finally, is it just me or are FFIV characters saying "What...!" or "What!" really frequently? :D

Behold the Void
01-16-2005, 11:15 PM
A good one to do would be Final Fantasy Tactics. The Engrish is awesome.

01-16-2005, 11:51 PM
That game is too awe inspiring to make fun of. Any hope of the next one being done by Tuesday?

The translations of FFVI arn't that bad, but there's still plenty of parts in the game that are strange or corny enough to make a good parody of. Example: The citizens of Doma all drinking the poisoned water, not seeming to realize that GLOWING PURPLE WATER = BAD. Not to mention just about everything Ultros says.

01-17-2005, 10:55 AM
It's a great line but it was mentioned earlier in the thread which sort of takes some of the surprise out of it. If you like a certain cheesy part of the game it's most likely to see the finished episodes if there is no external references to it.

Same reason I didn't put a You Spoony Bard! image in there.

Golbez may not put his words together in a clear or coherent manner, but since the lights have dimmed we can safely assume that this is a threat. Better think of something fast!

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/145.jpg" border="4">
<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/144.jpg" border="4">


Well, that was convenient, unfortunately the Red Wings are after you in hot pursuit and catching up fast! With everything on the line, Cid decides to sacrifice his life so that you can make a safe escape.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/194.jpg" border="4">

Yang somehow stopped a supercannon by locking himself in the room with it, and Cid rebuilds a mountain by jumping out of an airship and blowing himself to pieces... <i>right</i>

Never said it had to make sense, but it's damn funny to watch.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/193.jpg" border="4">
<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/192.jpg" border="4">

And it assures us a sweet new ride in the near future.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/191.jpg" border="4">

Sorry Kain, I'm sure if Cid knew you were so concerned he would have killed himself in a much safer way.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/190.jpg" border="4">

Did he give that order before or after he fell to his exploding death?

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/189.jpg" border="4">

I have no idea what the hell that means.


Yang and Cid...

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/188.jpg" border="4">


Again, your new vehicle capability only allows you to go to one new area in the entire world. That must be the next destination.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/187.jpg" border="4">

And what a way to start it off.

This is probably the least interesting "town" in the whole of Final Fantasy IV, if you even have the nerve to call it a town.

Even the Namingway in this place gets on my nerves. If I were you, I would hurry on as soon as you possibly can.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/186.jpg" border="4">

There is much better things to experience in the cave following anyway, for instance:

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/185.jpg" border="4">

I guess it wasn't the monsters who brought this one down.

After a few battles and other soldiers who felt the wrath of the temperamental prince, it's finally time to meet him.

And boy oh boy does he suck

Aww, cheer up there Rydia, we have awesome vehicles to compensate for all of them! That hook was more useful than Cid ever was.

Heal up Edge and start heading up the Tower of Bab-il... Again.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/176.jpg" border="4">

Poor kid... I don't know if it's worse that his parents have been turned into horrible beasts or that they improperly use "the" in their threats against him.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/175.jpg" border="4">

Can't say I blame him for being so angry, although I'm not sure I'd ever make that noise.

But wait... There is something Rubicant doesn't know about Edge. When in a rage, he gains unspeakable powers!

No matter, the members of your team who are actually worth the space in your party will take Rubicant out without a problem.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/169.jpg" border="4">

Don't worry Edge, your father's death was not in vain...

Unfortunately, as you'll soon realize, your awesome, unbeatable, stylin' new airship... Sucks.

The only place you're going in this thing is right back to that damn dwarf castle since it doesn't have the ability to cross magma (yet it had absolutely no problem when it was chasing the Enterprise in the last episode)

Well, you don't have a choice, so head back to the ugly lali-hoes.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/210.jpg" border="4">
<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/209.jpg" border="4">

Hmm, Giott really one-upped me on the interpretation of that "I am afraid" line...

Hey! I have an idea, let's go get the crystal before Golbez has a chance! Yeah! Great idea considering we've already tried that plan an ass load of times and its had a 100% fail rate.

On the up-side of coming back to this dumb castle, the inhabitants do have funnier dialogue than before, take advantage of it.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/211.jpg" border="4">

You see, coming here wasn't so bad after all...

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/208.jpg" border="4">

Do you mean the of the Cid? Well, he's is right of the here in the of the basement.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/207.jpg" border="4">

Convenient... Take this as a lesson kids, jumping from a great height and exploding in mid air is perfectly safe. Cid is living proof...

Don't bother asking any questions, just head off with Cid's modifications and visit the dwarf town which was previously unaccessable. It's home to some delicious genuine cheese. For future reference, the word "from" is not, has not, and will never be spelled "frum".

And now, for the three general rules of a friendly underworld dwarf town:

1. Ask strangers dumb questions that answer themselves.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/197.jpg" border="4">

(To answer your question... It's up)

2. Give strangers all of your treasure for no reason

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/206.jpg" border="4">

(If friendly underworld dwarf towns really existed college tuition wouldn't be so bad...)

3. Farmer

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/205.jpg" border="4">

Now that you're done here, you've got some options. More specifically, you can enter <b>cave A</B>, <b>cave B</B>, or the spectacular <b>cave C</B>. All sound equally uninteresting... Let's choose A!

And the winner is!

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/234.jpg" border="4">

This would be a great name for an area if every single area in the game didn't also fill the criteria contained in it. This is the equivilent to specifically naming your friend Jim's house "House of Floor and Ceiling"

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/233.jpg" border="4">

That Rydia is so cute... I wonder if all callers are as cute as her.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/232.jpg" border="4">

Guess not.

Make your way through the Land of Ambiguity to reach the Land of Summoned Monsters, AKA the Land of...

You're going to have lots of fun here. Just start talking to ALL the Bush hags.

I hope he's not as stupid as the human kings of Final Fantasy IV.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/228.jpg" border="4">

Yeah, other worlds, like RIGHT OUTSIDE YOUR STUPID TOWN.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/227.jpg" border="4">

True, but in his defense, at least he hasn't talked in Engrish yet. Besides, Titan could totally kick your ass.

When you're ready, head over to the library.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/223.jpg" border="4">

Actually there is exactly 240 books, not even close to countless, however, saying that you'd never get bored reading them is a lot closer to being accurate.

Take a look at some of my personal favorites:

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/226.jpg" border="4">

"Strong in body and mind" otherwise known as "Float"

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/225.jpg" border="4">

In other words: "The worst"

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/224.jpg" border="4">

<b>FFIV Translator:</b> "The word unbeknownst looks really cool... Where can I throw it in to this game..."

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/220.jpg" border="4">

This book is titled "Top 100 Farfetched Legends!" and this is <i>numero uno</i> but maybe you shouldn't laugh about this one just yet... *sigh*

Most importantly, you'll DEFINATELY want to read the book next to it before you move on. I call it <i><U>Le Scripturé Di "There is Actually a Boss Coming Up That Requires a Semi-Clever Strategy to Beat so Here is the Strategy For Those of you Who are Too Stupid to Figure it Out Yourselves."</U></i>, It's a classic in Bush Hag Land.

It's finally come time to face Leviatan and Asura! The official King and Queen of Monsterworld.

erm... Ladies First.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/218.jpg" border="4">

Well, do you?

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/217.jpg" border="4">

Talk about not looking like your on screen sprite...

Keep Wall(Grapefruit Slice) casted on Asura and this will be a quick battle. Then move on to King Leviatan!

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/214.jpg" border="4">

Leviatan is probably the toughest boss you've faced so far, luckily he's almost in the shape of a pretzel. Give it your all and you'll come out on top as the glorious winner and the new master of the King of Summoned Monsters!

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/213.jpg" border="4">

All that time he went unbeaten... You'd think he'd have come up with a better speech than that.

<img src="http://demented3d.com/ffiv/images/screens/212.jpg" border="4">

Surprise, surprise, you get the bootleg Leviatan. That's what you get for summoned monster shopping at the swap meet.

Great new episode, and a long one too! :D BTW Are you going to make fun of the fact that Golbez would have never made his way to the Sealed Cave if Cecil and the others hadn't brought the Crystal out for him? Would have been funny if Cecil and others had just waited Golbez to get himself killed getting to the Sealed Cave rather than being total idiots and doing exactly what Golbez wanted.
