Thread: The repeated shouts at Home...

  1. #1

    Default The repeated shouts at Home...

    One of the Big Mysteries of FF-X. When Home is under attack, there is an Al Bhed shouting something over and over again in the background, and I've been wondering for ages what it is he's actually saying.

    There are FAQ's and forums that will tell me how the damage done to any fiend is calculated or how to win the game using only Yuna or Lulu - but nowhere have I seen an answer to this. (Except someone guessing it to be "I'm annoying, ya?" )

    Nayto Du Ku! is what they shout, which in Al Bhed means "Ready to Go!"

    That is Cid calling people to go to the airship before he destroys home.

    It is the title of the movie on the FFX disk when you rip it. Not that I'd ever rip a game disk movie * whistles *

    But even if that is the title, it doesn't necessarily mean that he's saying those words in that scene?

    if you know a phrase, you're much more likely to be able to interpret vague shoutings in a movie scene.

    same here, i always thaught it was an emergency announcement... i guess under the circumstances "ready to go" could be an emergency anouncement...

    "Nayto Du Ku!" is definitely used at some point, by Cid I think, but it's not the message being repeated over the loudspeaker. That's a different phrase altogether, and is audible from the time the group first enters Home. It plays endlessly for the first several scenes.
    I don't know what it is either, but it sure sounds like "I'm annoying, huh?" with an echo on the end of "huh".

    No, it doesn't really sound like "Nayto Du Ku!". Ah, well, gets it will remain one of life's mysteries...
