Final Fantasy V

Butz Lenna Faris Solitary Island

The party lands on a small island in the middle of the ocean. Getting up first, Butz helps Lenna and Faris to their feet.

『ここが…
レナ「ガラフの世界?
『This is...
Lenna: Galuf's world?

There's no music here, and nothing to see except a weak monster that always drops a Tent. Could this mean something? Let's just wander around a little longer.

レナ「テントでやすまない? Lenna: Why don't we rest in a tent?

She'll repeat this every so often until you actually use a Tent, so go ahead and use one right away unless you'd rather stock up.

Lenna and Faris stand by a fire in a clearing in the woods, while Butz dozes nearby.

ファリス「……
     レナ…
     ずっと気になってる事が
     あるんだ……
ファリス「北の山での事だけど
     何であんな危険な事まで
     して飛竜を助けたんだ?
Faris: ......
 Lenna...
 There's something that's been
 bugging me for a while...
Faris: On the Northern Mountain...
 why would you put yourself in so
 much danger to save the wyvern?
レナ「姉さん…お母さんの事って
   おぼえてる?
ファリス「えっ?……んー、少し…
レナ「私ね…あの飛竜を見ると
   お母さんを思い出すの…
ファリス「どういうこと?
Lenna: Sister... do you remember
 mother?
Faris: Huh? ...hmm, a little...
Lenna: Well... when I see that wyvern,
 it reminds me of mother...
Faris: What do you mean?

The fire suddenly goes out. Lenna and Faris look confused, until dramatic music starts playing and a monster swoops down to grab Lenna. Even Butz wakes up.

『魔物か!! 『A monster!!

Before anyone can react, it grabs Faris, too, and flies off with both of them.

『レナ! ファリス!! 『Lenna! Faris!!

Then it comes back for Butz. He's ready for it, and gets to fight back, but unfortunately, it overpowers him, and the whole group is taken.

Or maybe he wins the battle. If so, the monster leaves a treasure chest behind.

ガスだ!! Gas!!
か… からだが、しびれる… My... my body's going numb...

Same result, except that winning the battle nets an Ether and 1 ABP. The Wyrmknight's !Jump seems to work well for doing this, inflicting significant amounts of damage while usually avoiding most of the enemy's attacks, which include an HP-to-single-digits spell.


 Butz Lenna Faris Captive

The party wakes in a dungeon cell. This does not look good for them.

『ここは…!? 『Where are we...!?

They look around in confusion.

「ファファファ…
 ようこそ、わが城へ!
: Fwa fwa fwa...
 Welcome to my castle!

The dramatic evil music starts, and who else walks up but...

『エクスデス! 『Exdeath!
魔物「エクスデス様!
   ガラフたちがビッグブリッジ
   まで来ています!
Monster: Master Exdeath!
 Galuf's people have reached
 the Big Bridge!
「そうか…
 大鏡を用意せい!
: I see...
 Ready the great mirror!
魔物「はっ! Monster: Yes, sir!

The monster runs off, and Exdeath turns back to the cell.

「お前たちに、役にたって
 もらうとしよう!
: I think I'll put you to good use!

The monster returns and sets a large mirror in front of the cell.

レナ「バッツ 見て! Lenna: Butz, look!
『おれたちの姿が、空に!! 『That's us, in the sky!!

Meanwhile, on what must be the Big Bridge...

クルル「おじいちゃん見て! Karulu: Grampa, look!
ガラフ「バッツ!
    レナ!
    ファリス!!
Galuf: Butz!
 Lenna!
 Faris!!
エクスデス「ガラフよさがれ!
      さがらなければ
      この者たちの
      命はない!
Exdeath: Stand down, Galuf!
 If you refuse,
 their lives are forfeit!
ガラフ「くっそー
    みんな、ひくぞ!
Galuf: Damn it!
 Fall back, everyone!

Galuf, Karulu, and the soldiers with them retreat. Meanwhile, back in the castle...

エクスデス「ギルガメッシュ Exdeath: Gilgamesh.

What looks to be a warrior in fancy red and silver armor approaches.

ギルガメッシュ「はっ! Gilgamesh: Sir!
エクスデス「こいつらを見はれ!
      たよりにしているぞ。
Exdeath: Stand guard over them!
 I'm counting on you.
『エクスデス!きさま 『Damn you, Exdeath!

Exdeath toses some magic at him.

『くっそー… 『Dammit...

Back on the Big Bridge, the music fades as Galuf turns to Karulu.

ガラフ「クルル、お前の飛竜を
    借りるぞ!
    バッツたちを
    助けなければ!
Galuf: Karulu, I'm borrowing
 your wyvern!
 I've got to save Butz
 and the others!
ガラフ「飛竜をはなせ! Galuf: Release the wyvern!
兵士「はっ! Solders: Yes, sir!

More determined music starts now. The wyvern takes off, Galuf hops on, and they fly to Exdeath's castle, where Galuf jumps down to a low roof.

ガラフ「お前はクルルの所に
    帰っていろ!
Galuf: You go back to Karulu!

He heads inside, dropping to a lower floor near an obvious treasure chest.

ガラフ「ここか… Galuf: Here...?
バッツたちのアイテム
クリスタルのかけらを見つけた!!
Found the items and Crystal
shards from Butz's group!!
ガラフ「バッツ
    レナ、ファリス
    待ってろよ!
Galuf: Butz, Lenna, Faris,
 just hang on!

Galuf continues toward the dungeons. He may get in a few battles along the way, but the monsters here pose surprisingly little threat for something in the enemy stronghold.

ギルガメッシュ「だれだ!? Gilgamesh: Who's there!?

Gilgamesh attacks. Luckily for Galuf, he doesn't have any interesting attacks, unless you count yelling every time he strikes.

ギルガメッシュ「おりゃっ! Gilgamesh: Oryah!
ギルガメッシュ「うりゃっ! Gilgamesh: Uryah!

He doesn't have much staying power, either.

ギルガメッシュ「く くそっ! Gilgamesh: D-damn!
「きょ きょうのところは : F-for today,
「これくらいにしといてやる! : I'll let you off with this!
「おぼえときな! ぺっ! : You'll get what's coming to you! Pht!

And Gilgamesh runs away.

This fight shouldn't cause any trouble, unless Galuf lacks any real offense. Combine the Knight's !Guard with the Monk's Counter to make it effortless.

『ガラフ! 『Galuf!
ガラフ「待っておれ。
    今ここを開ける
Galuf: Hang on.
 I'll get this open.
ファリス「ありがとう、ガラフ。
『ガラフすまない。おれたち…
Faris: Thanks, Galuf.
『Sorry, Galuf. We...
ガラフ「ええい!話は後じゃ。
    とにかく脱出じゃ!
Galuf: Enough! We'll talk later.
 Now to get out of here!

Nothing interesting happens during their escape, except when passing an apparent guard post that Galuf completely ignored on his way in.

おっと!
見つかるとやばい。
Whoa!
Better not be seen.

While passing the grating, the lead party member uses the "dead" field sprite, which for Butz sort of looks like he's crawling on his belly. Faris almost does too, but Lenna and especially Galuf absolutely do not. Try switching the lead member around for a bit of silliness.

Outside, head back to the west, where Galuf flew in from, to reach the Big Bridge.


ビッグブリッジ Butz Lenna Galuf Faris The Big Bridge

The music immediately sets the tone, so it should come as no surprise when monsters attack every so often as the party heads for the other side.

ガラフ「ここから先は魔物の巣
    じゃ!
    気をつけろ!!
Galuf: It's swarming with monsters
 from here on in!
 Be careful!!

In a small structure in the middle of the bridge, Gilgamesh bursts through the door on the other side as the party tries to leave, startling them.

Incidentally, the music playing here, though frequently called "Battle on the Big Bridge", also commonly goes by the names "Battle with Gilgamesh" and simply "Gilgamesh's Theme".

ギルガメッシュ「このとびらの
  うらでずっと待っていたぞ!
Gilgamesh: I've been waiting behind
 this door the whole time!
「来なかったらどうしようかと
 不安になっていたところだ!
: I was almost about to get worried
 over what to do if you didn't show!
「いくぞ!! : Here I come!!

Ths time, besides attacking, Gilgamesh may also use the Blue Magic skills Aerora and Goblin Punch (look out if anyone is level 28), as well as a version of Wind Scythe with power comparable to Aerora. Additionally, he'll change tactics after losing 4,000 of his 6,500 hit points:

「おれが悪かった…… : I was wrong...

Gilgamesh casts Haste...

「4人でこられちゃ…… : Four of you at once...

...Gilgamesh casts Protect...

「てもあしもでないぜ…… : I'm completely helpless...

...Gilgamesh casts Shell...

「……てのは ウゾだけどな!! : ...that was all lies, of course!!

...Gilgamesh uses a Jump attack.

From here on, Gilgamesh loses his earlier attacks, but continues to have Jump as an option, and may also use Electric Shock (a bit stronger than a Thunder spell). The spells he cast also remain in effect, making him hader to take down, even as he attacks more frequently.

ギルガメッシュ「うっ! Gilgamesh: Ooh!
「急用を思いだしたぜ!! : I just remembered some urgent business!!
「必ず もどって来るからなっ! : I swear I'll be back, though!

He'll always drop a Triangle Hat, and you can Steal for a (common) Hero Drink or a (rare) Trident. Nothing fancy.

Having lost, Gilgamesh runs off again. After a few more battles, Karulu approaches from the far side of the bridge.

ガラフ「クルル! Galuf: Karulu!
クルル「おじいちゃん!
    バリアが!!
Karulu: Grampa!
 The barrier!!

With a rumbling sound, an ominous-looking dome of energy expands from Exdeath Castle. Karulu makes it to shelter in time, but the other four are flung high into the air in the shockwave.

クルル「おじいちゃん!! Karulu: Grampa!!

She looks around a little...

クルル「おじいちゃん!! Karulu: Grampa!!

...but soon realizes what must have happened.


 Butz Lenna Galuf Faris Somewhere Else

Fortunately, the four land together and apparently unharmed, on top of a raised bit of land. But...

ファリス「ここは… Faris: Where...?
ガラフ「グロシアーナ大陸…
    きょうぼうな生物がすむ
    辺境の地じゃ。やっかいな
    所に飛ばされたな…
Galuf: The Grociana continent...
 Ferocious creatures live in this
 remote land. We've been flung
 to a bothersome place...

Spelling open to debate. The name doesn't seem to have any particular significance.

Faris and Lenna hop down, leaving Butz alone with Galuf.

『ガラフ…
 すまない。
 おれたちのために…
『Galuf...
 sorry.
 It's our fault that...
ガラフ「来ないでいいと言ったのに
    まったく世話のやける
    やつらじゃ。
Galuf: I said you didn't have to come.
 My goodness, what a troublesome
 lot you are.

Butz hops down too, leaving Galuf to finish with an aside.

ガラフ「でも
    うれしいぞ……
Galuf: But...
 I'm glad you did...
