OKAY, NOW WE'RE AT THE END.
THIS IS IT FOR REAL.
THIS IS THE FINAL COUNTDOWN.

ARE YOU READY FOR THIS

PREVIOUS EPISODES YEAH





"Prologue" starts up during this sequence. I specifically remember watching my sister play this part.

Keep an eye on everyone's HP.



'Sort of flicker into sight.









Tellah! :> I've missed you, you crazy old coot!




There's a joke here and I can't think of it right now.












...y'know, I'm not sure -- I mean, I went with the classic party formation when I played because I'm boring -- but I wonder if this sequence is the same in the GBA version? If you choose to have other people go with you, I mean? :O I mean, I assume whoever you left behind gives you THE ENERGYYY and so on. Wonder what their dialogue is like... /talking to myself









Alright! Everyone's ready, then.



Zeromus wont attack you in this state, and you can't do damage to him. He'll just sit there making creepy rumby noises and tremble and stuff.

There's only one thing you can do...







AIHGIADNHK Zeromus looks terrifying in this shot oh god









AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA




The battle officially begins. I got really nervous during this for some reason, heh.
The Final Battle, which is rockin' and one of my favorite themes in the game. Then again, final battle music usually is :B The Black Mages also did a completely freaking awesome rendition of this song, but I can't find it. ARRRGGH

Anyway, Zeromus actually got a complete makeover for FFIV US. Here's a screenshot of what he used to look like:

FREAKY, ISN'T IT? I'm not really sure why they changed it, aside from the fact that it's nightmare-inducing and has an evil, half-naked lady infused with it. I'm pretty sure they put it back in the GBA version, though.

Oh yeah, and Zeromus has 65,498 HP, which doesn't SEEM like that much, but he gets a complete refresh at some point in the battle. Nobody knows what triggers it and there's no visual indication of it. I'm guessing it's when it starts to get really low, but who knows. Either way, you're probably going to have to do about 100-130k before he dies. See why you need to save all your throwable items?

So anyway, Cecil should attack, Kain should Jump, Edge should throw every throwable item in your inventory, Rydia should summon Bahamut, and Rosa should Cure the crap out of everyone. Don't bother with buffs or anything, just cure like crazy. Also, do NOT have Rydia cast Meteo or Nuke, and do NOT have Rosa use Holy. This will cause Zeromus to counter with the same spell, and although his spells aren't near as strong as yours, he will still use them up to three times, which is enough to slaughter your party. He may also use Weak in place of one of those counter spells, which ALSO sucks, especially if he's already casted Virus or something and it's draining your HP. So don't do it, okay.





THERE GOES THE SPOON which doesn't look like a spoon at all. That's a bummer :(






One of Zeromus' attacks, which can be pretty nasty.








You can't tell, but the background starts moving in the opposite direction when he does this. It also makes this creepy noise, but it's a lot freakier in the GBA version. If you ask me, anyway :V
Also, I'm pretty sure this can also sap your HP like Virus does.




THERE GOES EXCALBUR I think.




Argh stupid HP draining adfkgjhd



There goes Rydia. SCREW YOU, VIRUS







This just means that he has removed buffs like Wall and Fast and stuff, not that you can't use magic. This confused me for a while, too :B




And Meteor means that he's nearing his death.



Suddenly...













His name disappears from the enemy list. As any FF fan should know, this means it's over.





PUFF THE MAGIC DRAAAGGOONNN LIIIIVED BYYYY THE SEEEEEAAAA



TRR...YRR...




The screen starts rumbling violently.








Everything is still.



Hahahahahaha I don't know why this cracks me up.






Edge for god's sake throwing spoons at people does not make you the pinnacle of evolution







This is actually very true. I ENDORSE THIS THEORY







I SWEAR, EDGE














This would be a little more moving if it had punctuation, but I'll take it!















FuSoYa: come on man shouldn't we go or something
Golbez: WAIT WAIT I THINK HE'S GONNA SAY IT



Golbez: okay fine i'll prompt him a little




Golbez: I'M REALLY GOING TO LEAVE NOW. WE MAY NEVER SEE EACH OTHER AGAIN.
FuSoYa: dude look give it up he's just ignoring you




FuSoYa: seriously man let's go
Golbez: wait wait hold on i think he's really going to do it this time







Golbez: hahahaha see i told you
FuSoYa: whatever man, just get it over with







Yaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy :>



And then we cut to the solar system, where everything zips around at a bajillion miles per hour. The intro to Epilogue comes in, here, and the rest of the song plays for the remainder of the final cutscene :D It's mainly just reprises of songs we've already heard. I dunno why, but I really love it when video games do that for the final song. It just... brings back a lot of memories, y'know?




OH, GREAT




The scrolling effect here is really weird. It's almost like you're looking in through the side of a box or something, if that makes sense. Dunno how else to describe it.












And the whale goes back into the seeeeeaaaaaaaa. GOODBYE, WHALE




Pretty sure the next part of the Epilogue starts up, here. This plays the entire time you visit all the characters and stuff.







Hahaha, oh Palom.






I MISSED THIS WHEN THEY WERE GONE







Yeah, that's about my reaction when I'm faced with homework












So wait, Chamberlain will worry if he stops dating girls?








Hehehehehe :D




CHASING GIRLS AGAIN WHY THE VERY NERVE
I really like Chamberlain a lot for some reason, I don't know why. Okay, self.









Except for the fangs.




Leviatan looks around after he says this. What.




Cecil: i'm not here, lol





YangWife runs all over the place at high speeds. I assume she is nervous.




WHERE IS HER THRONE?



WAY TO LISTEN TO YOUR WIFE, YANG





Oh, Yang. You haven't changed a bit :3





What.



Haha. Fabulous.









HMM, WHO COULD THAT BE ABOUT :D




Kids: OH YEAH, DEFINITELY. YEAH.









YAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY








Suddenly a fleet of airships fly over and drop a multitude of bombs on them





they're dead, lol



WHO SAW THIS COMING? ANYONE?












HEY IT'S KAI-- hahahahahaha oh my god that hair. YOU'RE AS BAD AS CECIL, KAIN.






I don't know why, but this is really depressing to me. It's even more sad in the GBA version... let's see...

"Cecil... Rosa...
I cannot bring myself to face you both. Not yet.
I must test myself as you did, Cecil, at Mt. Ordeals.
I will train until I have surpassed my father as a dragoon...
When that time comes... ...Then I shall return to Baron."

And... I don't know. I mean, you know he has to feel bad about being possessed, and you know he has to still feel torn up over Rosa. And with Cecil becoming king and making Rosa his queen... I dunno, I mean, he probably just feels really inadequate to say the least, y'know? Why else would he decide to run away to the mountains right before Cecil and Rosa's wedding?

I PROBABLY WOULDN'T CARE AS MUCH IF I HAVEN'T LOVED KAIN DEARLY FOR OVER A DECADE AND I'M PROBABLY THINKING ABOUT THIS TOO MUCH BUT IT'S JUST DEPRESSING TO ME OKAY SHUT UP




Next part of Epilogue starts uuuupppp




Heh, I like how he just randomly has a name.












...well, that was wrong on so many levels.

Moon: SCREW YOU GUYS I'M OUTTA HERE
xXlunarprincezzXx has left the room.
















I imagine this being said in a sort of clipped tone for some reason









DON'T TAKE ANY WOODEN NICKELS MAC OR YOU'LL BE OUTTA THE RITZ ON THE LAM BEFORE YA KNOWS IT



GOODBYE
I'M REALLY GONNA LEAVE, NOW






Edge: hey baby why dontcha ditch this loser and come with me





yaaaaaayyyyyyy :D





hehehehehe









Rosa bowed as well, she didn't snub him or anything :B




Palom comes zooming in like a jet. FSHOOOOM







Hahahahaha






I think he also talks to Rosa, but I can't remember.










He looks around the room and bows, but I zoned out and didn't get a shot. duhhh



Heheh, Edge.





She talks to Rosa for a really long time. GABBITY GABBITY





Hahahahahaaaaa



Well, I guess everyone's here. EXCEPT KAIN sob sob











okay wtf kind of bizarre wedding ceremony was that



I'LL MISS YOU GUYS D:



Anyway yaaaaayyyy last part of the Epilogue starts up.



FIRST NAMES AREN'T IMPORTANT



Yaaaaaay good ol' Nobuo Uematsu :> Didn't he stop doing music for the FF series semi-recently? I think I heard something about that.



You can tell the staff really enjoyed their text effects, here








THANKS YOU GUYS. Ted Woolsey did not have anything to do with this translation, despite what some people may claim.



I LOVE YOU MIYAMOTO AAAAA







I like how the "special thanks" list is longer than the staff list, wow XD



Awwwww. I miss Squaresoft so much it hurts. Now we have SquareEnix, pfffft.



GETTING CLOSER



WHAT THE OH GOD WHAT IS HAPPENING



NO NO GET AWAY



DON'T COME ANY CLOSER



NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO




I LOVE YOU FINAL FANTASY I WISH I COULD STAY WITH YOU FOREVER

Aaaaand that's a wrap!

I really enjoyed doing this, and I hope everyone else had fun as well :D Thank you to everyone who left comments on these -- you guys are hilarious and great and your comments never fail to make my day. Also, thanks to all the lurkers who decided to pop out and say hi and everything. IT'S COOL TO KNOW THERE'S MORE PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO ENJOY READING THESE AND EVERYTHING.

Haha, this is coming out really stupidly. JUST... THANK YOU ALL, IS WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY. I'm already wanting to do another game, but I should probably wait until 2008 (AKA a couple of months lol) because I have work I need to do :B I may do a voting post thing before then, though. We'll seeeeee

Oh yeah, and a couple of videos:
FFIV Ending (Part 1) - This starts when Cecil walks in the room to find Golbez and FuSoYa fighting Zemus and everything, soooo you get to see pretty much everything that happened in the past two updates :D
FFIV Ending (GBA Version) (Part 1) - So you can compare dialogue and stuff.
There's other videos on YouTube, obviously, but I'll let you guys poke through there yourselves :B

And now for some tea.

Edit: Oh yeah, we're going to Texas tomorrow and aren't coming back until Sunday, and I hate the computers there with a passion, so if I'm really late replying or anything then you know why :O

YEAAAAAAH WE'RE READY

:D

And is it just me or does Zeromus look like a mass of tentacles and nothing else? Or like a big head of hair.

Oh, that's pretty awesome. :D Everyone coming and giving them HP, I mean.

If you choose to have other people go with you, I mean? :O I mean, I assume whoever you left behind gives you THE ENERGYYY and so on. Wonder what their dialogue is like...

No, it's an interesting question. :O So in the GBA version, can you choose any combination of five party members, or is Cecil always one of them? I mean, just wondering, since he's the hero and all. :O

HOLY CRAP ZOMBIE MECHA D:

Also, do NOT have Rydia cast Meteo or Nuke, and do NOT have Rosa use Holy. This will cause Zeromus to counter with the same spell, and although his spells aren't near as strong as yours

(I was dead certain there was a page on tvtropes that had an example of a boss battle where if you played according to certain rules (because of, you know, honor and stuff. So there was an actual reason for it), it was easier, but if you used your weapon, the boss brought out his weapon, too, and it became a lot harder. Thought it was NeverBringAKnifeToAFistFight, but... argh. Maybe somebody took it out. >( )

...Woah. Did he just... disolve?

...Yeah, Golbez did a lot of horrible stuff, but he was possessed at the time. I'm not sure we can really hold him responsible.

Ha, I hope they weren't on the whale when it went back into the sea. That'd be awkward.

So if he starts dating BOYS all the time....

Leviatan looks around after he says this. What.

*starts shipping Rydia/Leviatan*

NAAAAAHHHH, LET'S JUST LEAVE IT IN RUINS. I LIKE IT THIS WAY.

WHO SAW THIS COMING? ANYONE?
I WAS TOTALLY TAKEN BY SURPRISE.

Yeah... a sort of self-imposed exile. :<

DUDE WHAT why would the moon just leave like that. And how?


THAT WAS AWESOME. :D

I THOUGHT HE SORTA LOOKED LIKE TANGELA FROM POKEMON why do I keep making connections between FFIV and Pokemon

D X KEPT PRAYING wait

You have to keep Cecil, yeah, but you can change the rest your party around as much as you want :O I'm gonna have to play the GBA version again or something, I wanna see if it's different.

Haha, really? :B Now that you mention it, that does seem to happen... pretty much all the time in boss battles.

Yeah, I know, and it's sad since Golbez still feels really guilty about it and Cecil is all SHUNNNN and stuff. Kinda like Kain and him fleeing to the woods because he was still harboring all that guilt over what HE did and everything. Though honestly, if I were put in that position, I'd probably feel the same way and would have a hard time forgiving myself and all that, even if I had been possessed and it wasn't technically my fault. But still. GOD ZEMUS STOP SEVERING RELATIONSHIPS OR SOMETHING

Hahahahaha SOMEONE NEEDS TO WRITE A FANFIC WITH THAT SCENARIO 8D

So if he starts dating BOYS all the time....
MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY

Man now I wanna see the castle when it's all rebuilt, even though it'd probably just look like every other RPG castle out there. wtf self. BUT MAYBE THEY DECIDED TO PUT HOT TUBS IN IT THIS TIME, YOU NEVER KNOW

I HAVE NO IDEA, MAN. THAT MOON JUST WENT FLYIN' OFF THE HANDLE AND THERE WASN'T NOTHIN' ANYONE COULD DO ABOUT IT I TELL YOU WHAT though it's kind of sad when you think about it, since that means Cecil prooooobably wont be seeing Golbez again anytime soon :B

I'M GLAD YOU ENJOYED IT

Hahahaha HE KIND OF DOES.

*nod* Yeah, that makes sense. :O Cool. :D

REALLY :O and then when I went to the page it just... wasn't there. :( I guess it must have been somewhere else, but I couldn't find it at all. I know it was on tvtropes though.

Yeah and I mean, way to go Cecil, it's not like he really had anything to do with it. It was basically just an evil entity stealing his body. That would probably mess a person up a little, too... having all this guilt to carry around that isn't even properly theirs.

THEIR LOVE WAS THE LOVE OF THE CENTURY.

Yeah, I know. :B

Unless the moon comes back? I mean, I guess it could come back since it left in the first place. I mean one isn't more nonsensical than the other.

8D

Edward: "Do your best!" WISH YOU WERE HERE, EDWARD <3

I want to know what happens if you switch around the party for the final battle, too. Does Anna come back with Tellah to wish Edward luck? Because if she did, that would just be the sweetest thing ever.

They did put back the original True Zeromus in the GBA version, yup. Personally I think the original is more nightmare-inducing, but what do I know.

I totally read one of Zeromus' 'blargh dying' shots as "GRAHAAAAAM!!!" :B

Aww, Edge chasing after Rydia and Edward tending to his people and Kain brooding on a mountaintop and <3. <3

Wait, what? They took the moon? How much is that gonna screw up the planet's environment?

AND WE'RE DONE YAY. Thank you so much for doing this game, Dox. Originally I was all 'ehh I didn't like this game too much', but man, you have totally changed my mind. I'd forgotten how much I liked Edward and Edge and Cid and aagh. This Final Fantasy really is one of the best.
So...thanks. :B

Awwww that WOULD be 8D Man, now I'm really curious about that. I need to check it out once I get hooommmee

SAME HERE I dunno what it is, just something about it. It just looks like it'd be more... agile or something.

I READ IT THE EXACT SAME WAY AND BURST OUT LAUGHING but then I realized the 'H' wasn't there and was all disappointed. THAT WOULD'VE BEEN GREAT, THOUGH

Awww, I know :> And Palom and Porom are all up to their crazy twin antics.

A LOT, OH GOD. If there was no Moon then there wouldn't be any life on Earth, would there? And it'd just be totally thrown off its axis and the seasons would be all out of control and tidal waves would fluctuate wildly and man just all sorts of stuff. I'd get into the details a little more but mehhh lazy

You have no idea how happy I am to hear that 8D I love this game dearly, and I loved doing this screenshot adventure just because it was great seeing you guys getting into it and everything, and knowing that doing this has managed to get at least one person to like this game as well is just a kind of incredible feeling, really, and man this is coming out all stupid and jumbled and wow this sentence is long. "I'M GLAD YOU ENJOYED IT" IS WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY

GOD I JUST NEVER REALIZED HOW MUCH OF FF9 WAS INFLUENCED BY THIS GAME it's really kind of amazing when you start drawing parallels. :O Even the last battle against the evil in everyone's hearts, where the team members you didn't take with you give you their energy to help you succeed, and Zidane and Kuja being brothers sort of but also aliens sort of and then making up at the end of the game sort of and they even had the four fiends and dang I need to play FF9 again.

"My dear brother". Awwww!

ooooh. :o He does look creepy. a;jdkfaafdj

HOLY JESUS that's scary O_O

Man, I dunno. The Japanese version of Zeromus doesn't scare me as much as the English one. Huh. I wonder why they changed it? o_O

So, Zeromus's background is pulling a freaky...uh. GOD WHAT'S THE BAD GUY'S NAME FROM EARTHBOUND. but, ya know what I'm talking about, right?

GRRAAAM....CRACKERS!!!1

EDGE IS ONE COCKY SUNOVABITCH.

Awww. He said goodbye. AFTER NEARLY A CENTURY COME ON CECIL.

"No! No wait Porom I haven't told her about how I singlehandedly defeated Zeromus!"

hahahah that little heart <3

So, with Yang screaming "ACHOOO" all the time, does this mean he has a long-lasting, violent cold?

D: Aw. Poor Kain.

Wait. At random points, Palom's outfit changes to green. What?

omg it's over yaaay! <3 Such a nice and funny game. I WILL MISS IT.

Where in Texas? :o *lives there*

I dunno why Cecil and Golbez's brotherhood makes me "aww" as much as it does :B

Really? :O How come?

NOW THAT YOU MENTION IT IT IS KINDA LIKE GIYGAS' BACKGROUND THING except Giygas' is a lot more nightmare-inducing somehow. Something about how it moves and morphs and that thing about how the black space around Giygas is supposed to form the shape of a human fetus and asdfasd.
But it's funny -- I was actually thinking of that battle while I was fighting Zeromus, what with the praying and the other characters helping you out and stuff. HMMMMMMMMMM. why is there a dead ladybug stuck in this keyboard

IT CHANGES COLORS REALLY I didn't even notice :O

I LOVE THIS GAME SO MUCH I can't wait for the DS version :> Though I heard something about how it's just coming out in Japan, like, this December. So it's probably going to be a while before it comes out here. argh afdgjk

Uhhhh I'm pretty sure we're in Houston :O

Brotherhood in general makes me "awww" if it's...ya know...sweet. xD

I don't know really. xD

Yeah, Giygas' background is MUCH creepier. And why IS there a dead ladybug stuck in that keyboard. o_O that's kind of weird

:O I live in Houston! What a kawinky-dink. Hah hah. xD You "think". WERE YOU NOT PAYING ATTENTION WHEN YOU GOT THERE OR WHAT.
