Mega Man ZX
Game Script
by RandyPandy

================================================================================
Introduction
================================================================================

For the most part, Vent and Aile's script will be very similar, but there are a
few events that are different in Vent's and Aile's script. For example, in
Vent's story, Giro had never used Model Z before, but in Aile's story, he has
used it several times before.

First is Aile's script, and then Vent's, since I played as Aile first. Use the
Ctrl + F feature to jump to the part of the script you want to read.

Aile's Story
================================================================================

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 1 - Deliver the Biometal
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Giro: Hello! Thank you for calling Giro Express Transporters! We can take
anything, anywhere!

????: Giro? Is that you?

Giro: Ah, the Guardian... or should I say client.

????: Did you receive the package from the archaeological recon unit?

Giro: Yes, I got it.

????: My unit is heading for the agreed upon rendezvous point. It's a little
sooner than expected, but let's meet up there.

Giro: Alright.

(He looks at Aile, who is standing by a cliff looking over a building.)

Giro: Hey Aile! You ready to move out?

(He walks over to Aile, who hasn't moved.)

Giro: Aile! Did you hear me!?

Aile: ...

Giro: You can see the Slither Inc. building from here. They sure have done a lot
to save this country.

Aile: The country maybe, but ten years ago, their security force couldn't save
my mom. We were surrounded by Mavericks... Even now I can still hear the screams
of the people. The Mavericks took everything from me.

Giro: I remember the day I found you, all alone. I know it's tough, but I doubt
your mother would want you to be so sad. Besides, you're not bad in a pinch. I
bet you didn't know that all of our customers like you.

(Aile gets annoyed.)

Aile: Not bad!? Giro! Is that supposed to be a compliment!?

Giro: Hahaha! Anyway, we have to get moving. The client is already making their
way to the rendezvous point.

(They walk back to their bikes.)

Aile: Hey Giro, who are those Guardian people we took the job from? They haven't
even told us what's in the package they want delivered so badly.

Giro: The Guardians are a defense force that banded together to fight the
Mavericks. Right now, they're moving from place to place investigating the cause
of Maverick outbreaks. As for the package, try not to ask too many questions.
I'm sure it's very important and very dangerous. Don't get too involved or there
might be trouble.

(Buster shots hit Giro's bike. Giro and Aile crouch next to their bikes.)

Aile: W-what's happening!?

Giro: Those are Mavericks! How did they get here!?

(The Mavericks attack Giro's bike.)

Giro: Ah! They must be after the package!

(The Mavericks attack Aile's bike. It explodes, flinging Aile and the package
over the cliff.)

Aile: Yaaah!

Giro: Aile!

(Aile wakes up in a grassy area.)

Aile: Ugh...

(She stands up.)

Aile: Oww, that was a long fall.

Giro: Aile! Are you okay!? The package! Do you see it!? It should've fallen near
you.

(Aile notices a glowing piece of blue and white metal to her right.)

Aile: Is that it?

Giro: Listen! Grab the package. Then take it to the rendezvous point and give it
to the Guardians! I'll join you later once I take care of business up here!
Protect the package at all costs!

(She runs over to it. Three people, Prairie, Bar, and Maquereau, notice her.)

Bar: Who are you!? What are you doing here!?

Aile: H-hold on! I'm only delivering a package.

(Prairie walks over.)

Prairie: Lower your weapons.

(They do so.)

Prairie: Are you a transporter?

Aile: Yes, I am... And you must be the Guardians?

Prairie: Yes. We heard an explosion and came to investigate.

(The ground shakes. A snake-type mechaniloid appears from the ground.)

Maquereau: W-what's that!?

Aile: A snake Mechaniloid! Is that thing with the Mavericks!?

(The two Guardians fire at it.)

Bar: Prairie! It's too dangerous! Take the Biometal and get out of here!

(The Mechaniloid knocks the two Guardians down.)

Maquereau: Aaagh!

(Prairie runs over and kneels by them.)

Prairie: Nooo!

Maquereau: J-just take it... and... go!

(Aile runs over to them.)

Aile: Hurry! Get up, we need to get away from here! They want the package! You
have to leave it behind. If we take it, they're just going to follow us!

Prairie: But I can't let the Biometal fall into the wrong hands!

Aile: Is that Biometal thing that important!? Come on, we have to go!

Prairie: But... Sis... She left that for us. It's too valuable to just give it
up now!

(The snake Mechaniloid appears again. Aile dashes between it and Prairie.)

Aile: I know Giro told me not to get too involved... But she seems to think the
Biometal is very important. I don't know what I should do...

(The Biometal, Model X, floats above Aile.)

Model X: Don't worry. I'll lend you a hand.

(Anime cutscene as Model X and Aile glow.)

Aile: Waaaaaah!

Model X: Biolink Established! M.E.G.A. System Online!

(Blue armor appears on Aile. Aile fires a shot at the Mechaniloid, which reels
back. Panting, she stares in astonishment. Anime cutscene ends.)

Aile: *panting* What happened to me? Is this the power of the Biometal!?

Model X: Don't be afraid. I'm Biometal Model X.

Aile: Model... X? The Biometal's talking to me inside my head!

Model X: We have to move away from here or that girl will get caught in the
middle. With our combined strength, we can fight them off!

Aile: ...

(The Mechaniloid flees. Prairie stands up as one of the other Guardians wakes.)

Prairie: She transformed!? Is she one of the chosen ones?

Aile: I just need to make sure this gets to the rendezvous point, right? It's
too dangerous for you to follow me, so please just wait here until I can get
help! I'm putting my neck on the line, so expect an extra fee when the bill
comes!

(She starts to run off.)

Prairie: W-wait!

(Aile stops and turns around.)

Prairie: Thank you for saving me. My name is Prairie.

Aile: And I'm Aile. I'll be your transporter today! Just wait. I'll bring back
help!

Prairie: Okay... Be careful Aile!

(Aile travels through the area, defeating several Mechaniloids. Finally, she
defeats the snake Mechaniloid from earlier.)

Aile: Guess that about mops them up. You said your name was Model X. Why did you
help me?

Model X: Do I need a reason to help people? You seemed determined to help that
girl even though you've never met her before. I just gave your bravery a little
power to back it up.

Aile: Power, huh? Well, whatever you did, it saved my hide. Bravery alone isn't
enough to fight those things...

Model X: ...

Aile: The rendezvous point should be just up ahead, right? Let's go.

(Aile enters a Transerver Room with four Guardians, including both Marue and
Fleuve. They notice her.)

Aile: I'm the transporter. I brought the package. Back there a girl named
Prairie is waiting and needs your help.

Marue: No way! Come on! Prairie and the others need us!

(He and two other Guardians leave, leaving only Fleuve.)

Aile: What's their rush? Those Guardians seem to think Prairie is very
important.

Fleuve: Amazing... It looks like you've managed to link up with the Biometal.
Anyway, I'm glad it made it to us safe and sound.

Aile: Hey, have you seen Giro? There should have been another transporter.
Has he arrived yet?

Fleuve: No. You're the only one that I've seen so far.

(Marue calls.)

Marue: This is the rescue squad, we've found the others! We'll treat the wounded
and then head on back to HQ.

Fleuve: Hold on. You haven't spotted another transporter out there, have you?
Apparently a transporter has gone missing in the area.

Marue: Hey! There's some serious smoke rising from the next area. It's totally
like someone has fallen under attack!

Aile: No... Giro! I'm sorry, but I'm going to need to keep the Biometal a bit
longer. I have to save him!

Fleuve: What!? You would put the Biometal at risk again!?

Aile: Oh I see! Now that your precious package is back, you don't care about the
guy who risked his life to deliver it!

Fleuve: B-but!

Prairie: Wait! Fleuve! Let her go!

Fleuve: Prairie!?

Prairie: It's okay Fleuve. She'll keep the Biometal safe from the Mavericks.
Aile... You risked your life to save me even though you didn't know me. I have
faith in you. I'll clear it with Guardian HQ. Go, help him.

Aile: Thank you Prairie.

Fleuve: Okay, we'll provide backup then. You may already know this, but these
devices known as transervers are scattered throughout the country. With these
devices you can save your data and check mission requests. Let's start with
saving data.

(Aile saves/doesn't save.)

Fleuve: I've just received orders from HQ. You currently have two mission
requests. One mission is to find your fellow transporter. The other mission is
to complete a trial in order to get permission to enter Guardian HQ. Complete
the two missions and return the Biometal to HQ. At HQ, we'll sign off on the
transporter request and your work will be done. You can decide which mission to
start first at the transerver.

Aile: Ten years ago, Giro saved me from the Mavericks... Now it's my turn to
return the favor. Hold on Giro, I'm coming!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 2 - Locate Giro
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Aile chooses the mission "Locate Giro." She travels to Area B and notices some
wreckage.)

Aile: It looks like there was a fight here. I can try following this road. Maybe
it'll lead to Giro.

Prairie: Aile? Come in Aile. About the Mavericks that attacked us, something
with the whole thing is bothering me. There might be a clue in the ruins about
what's causing the Maverick outbreaks. Check them out and see if you can find
something.

(Aile travels through the area until she picks up a Computer Chip.)

Aile: What's this? Is this a computer chip?

Prairie: It must be a part that fell off one of the Mavericks. If you bring it
back to HQ, we can analyze it. It might give us the lead we need. If you find
anything else, bring that back too.

(Aile travels through the area, picking up more Computer Chips, until she finds
a ship Mechaniloid. After attacking the Mechaniloid until it is nearly dead, an
odd red armored figure with a black visor and blond hair destroys the ship with
a saber.)

Model Z: So this is the chosen one for Model X?

????: Yes, she's very special to me.

(He transforms into Giro, and turns to Aile.)

Giro: Aile, it looks like you've been chosen by the Biometal too.

Aile: Giro! Just what is Biometal? I don't understand what's going on!

Giro: This is my partner, Biometal Model Z. I'm sorry I kept this a secret from
you, but I'm a member of the Guardians. You and me are both chosen ones. We can
transform with the power of the Biometal. I was given an order to protect you
from the people who are after the power inside you.

Aile: I'm a chosen one?

Giro: I didn't want to hide it from you. I was planning on telling you
everything once we safely delievered the Biometal. Aile. Will you join me and
the other Guardians? The Biometal is the key to understanding why the Maverick
outbreaks are occurring.

Aile: This is all so much for me to take in. I just don't know Giro...

Giro: I don't want to force you to do anything against your will. It's your
decision. I'm going to use the transerver to go back to Guardian HQ. I'll be
waiting there for your decision. Please don't take too long.

(Giro walks away.)

Prairie: It sounds like you managed to meet up with Giro. That's a relief. Oh,
be sure to go to the transerver in the back room and select Mission Report. Then
send confirmation to HQ that the mission has been completed.

Aile: Was Giro with me all those years just because he was ordered to protect
the chosen one? I feel so confused...

(Aile reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 3 - Pass the Test
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Aile chooses the mission "Pass the Test" and heads to Area C.)

Prairie: Hold on. It looks like Slither Inc's security force is starting to
patrol the area.

Aile: Patrols? That's the first time I've ever heard of them doing those.

Prairie: Slither Inc. must have already heard about the Maverick attack. If you
stay transformed, they might think you're in league with the Mavericks and
attack you on sight. I'm sure the people around town will also find it hard to
approach you if you look like that. In any case, it's too dangerous to walk
around town transformed. Be careful.

(Aile encounters a Guardian named Dorado.)

Dorado: You're going to undertake the trial for permission to enter HQ right?
There are four Guardians hidden like me throughout town. If you can find all of
us, you pass the test. Let the trial begin! Good luck!

(Aile finds a Guardian named Oelliet.)

Oelliet: Hoho! I shoulda known I'd get spotted in this hiding place. You aren't
gonna catch my comrades so easily though. They're in places that require more
than just strolling on in. Press the +Control Pad diagonally down to crouch
while walking. Look around different places, you never know what you might find.
I'm heading back to HQ. Good luck with the rest of the trial!

(She teleports away. Aile then finds a Guardian named Carrelet.)

Carrelet: Oh, looks like you found me! You should be careful of the security
patrols. As long as they're giving you the green light, you're safe from attack.
But if you're caught with a weapon they will open fire, no questions asked!
Anyway, I'm heading back to HQ. Good luck with the trial!

(He teleports away. Aile finds a Guardian named Congre.)

Congre: Yikes! Oh! You finally found me. I was afraid of running into the
security force and getting hurt. That's why I've been hiding here. *phew* I
thought they would find me for sure. Now I can finally head back to HQ.

(He teleports away. Aile finds the last Guardian, Thon.)

Thon: Grahaha! Well done findin' me little miss! I wish we had more of your kind
in the Guardians. But whether you decide to join us or not is up to you. I'll be
headin' back. See ya later!

(He teleports away.)

Prairie: It looks like you found them all. Head to Area C-2 and get the
certification for passing the test. That will conclude your trial.

(Aile heads to Area C-2 and finds Dorado outside the Data Room.)

Dorado: You passed the test. Here, take this.

(He hands her a Stuffed Animal.)

Aile: A stuffed animal? *giggle* It's really cute, but is this supposed to be my
certification!?

Dorado: You better take care of that. It's one of Prairie's most prized
possessions. Anyway, that concludes your trial. There's a transerver in the room
behind me. Don't forget to file a mission report!

(Aile reports the mission.)

Fleuve: Mission accomplished. Well done. You have permission to travel to HQ.
Use the transerver to get here.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 4 - Guardian HQ
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Aile travels to the Transerver Room in Guardian HQ. Giro, Prairie, and another
Guardian are there.)

Aile: This is the Guardian HQ? I certainly wasn't expecting an airship.

Prairie: The Guardians have to explore the world, so we need a convenient method
of staying mobile.

(She walks over to Aile.)

Prairie: I'm glad you both are okay.

Aile: Hey Prairie, I found a computer chip while I was out there. Here, you
should have it.

(She hands the Computer Chip over.)

Aile: And I brought back the certification that I passed the trial... I think.
Is this it?

(She hands over the Stuffed Animal.)

Prairie: Yes, that was a gift from Sis. It holds a lot of memories for me. Thank
you for bringing it back.

Giro: Aile! You can't just call her by her first name! Got it? Hmph, kids...

Prairie: Don't worry about it Giro. I want to apologize for the grave danger I
put you both in. Let's meet at the command center and I will explain everything
there. It's out of this room and to the left.

Giro: *sigh*

Aile: ...

(Prairie, Giro, and the Guardian leave, with Aile following afterwords. They
enter the Command Center, where Prairie is sitting at the main hub.)

Prairie: Let me take this opportunity to welcome you to Guardian Headquarters.
And...

(She stands up.)

Prairie: I am Prairie, the commander of the Guardians.

Aile: Wh-what!? Prairie is the commander of all the Guardians!? Th-then that
means...

Giro: She's a very important client. Which is exactly why I want you to call her
by her proper title.

Aile: But Prairie's my age right? How could a girl my age be commanding the
Guardians?

Prairie: The sentient machines known as Mavericks continue to attack people.
This terrible situation should not even exist. Hundreds of years ago, man and
machine put aside their differences and agreed to a truce. The Guardians have
continued to investigate the root cause behind the current Maverick outbreaks.
One day we found a research lab belonging to a certain scientist.

Aile: A "certain scientist?"

(Prairie bows her head.)

Prairie: The first commander of the Guardians... The one who disappeared. She
was my Sis.

Aile: Oh... I see.

Giro: And we were hauling the Biometal that you found at the research lab.

Prairie: A long time ago, the world humans and machines was saved by a group of
legends. Biometal are fragments containing the consciousness of those legendary
heroes. There might be some hint regarding the Maverick outbreaks in the data
stored at the lab. Fleuve's personal laboratory is right next to the transerver
room. Take the Biometal data there for analysis. I'll be here analyzing the
computer chip that you brought back.

(Giro and Aile go to Fleuve's lab.)

Fleuve: Oh, good, good. I have been waiting for you! Now, where is this fragment
of Biometal?

(Aile hands Model X over to Fleuve. Fleuve begins analyzing it on the computer.)

Fleuve: Ah, excellent... Data transfer complete. Much appreciated! You can take
the Biometal back now.

(He gives Model X back to Aile.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 5 - Model ZX
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(An alarm begins to ring.)

Operator: Mavericks detected in Area D! Mission objectives will be relayed on
arrival. Move out and await further orders. I repeat! Mavericks detected in Area
D! Mission objectives will be relayed on arrival. Move out and await further
orders.

Giro: Area D... That's right next to the Slither Inc. head office!

Fleuve: It's too dangerous for you to go back to town now. We must hurry to the
command center.

(They head to the Command Center.)

Prairie: It looks like our enemy is on the move.

Giro: "Enemy?" So they're not just random Maverick outbreaks?

Prairie: After I did a little snooping on the chip you brought back, I found
that there is a program controlling the Mavericks. There is someone behind the
Maverick attacks, but they're just making them seem like random raids. They must
be trying to steal the Biometal you were carrying.

Aile: Serpent's security force... Where are they? Why haven't they arrived yet!?

Prairie: It takes time for them to be recalled to the head office from their
patrol routes in the city. Guardian ground forces are moving to intercept the
Mavericks in Area D.

Maquereau: Ground forces reporting! The Mavericks are heading for the
residential district. Troops are exchanging fire on the highway in Area D.

Aile: What about the people in town?

(She starts to run out the door.)

Fleuve: Aile!? Where are you going!?

(Aile stops and turns around.)

Aile: WIth the Biometal, I can put up a fight!

(Giro walks towards her.)

Giro: Think Aile! If you go running out there with the Biometal, you'll fall
right into their hands! You don't know how to fight! It's far too dangerous for
you to go out there alone!

Aile: So you're just going to sit back and watch while the Mavericks do this!?
The people are going to get hurt when the Mavericks reach them! People just like
my mom... You would let that happen again!? Unlike you, I can't just sit there
and watch! I'll take every last one of them down!

(She runs out the door.)

Prairie: Aile!

(Giro runs a hand through his hair.)

Giro: Why won't she ever listen!?

(He chases her. Aile, merged with Model X, runs on the highway. Giro, merged
with Model Z, dashes towards her.)

Giro: Hold on Aile!

(She stops.)

Aile: Giro, I...

Giro: I'm not going to let you go out alone. Whether or not you can handle the
Biometal doesn't matter, you're important to me. I will protect you! Come on,
let's go!

Aile: Right!

(Giro dashes off ahead. Aile follows, eventually finding a wounded Maquereau.)

Maquereau: Another transporter!? You came too? Giro rescued me and continued on
alone. You have to save him!

(Aile continues on. Eventually, she finds Giro, still megamerged, lying on the
ground with a large man and two Reploids standing above him.)

Aile: Giro!?

????: Ah, you've come. Model X, the blue Mega Man. It's time to see the legend
in action.

(The man starts to do something to Giro.)

Giro: Ugh... Stay... away... It's a trap...

(Giro starts glowing.)

Giro: Aaargh!

(The three teleport away. Giro stands up, looking insane.)

Aile: Giro! What happened!?

Giro: Aile! Sh-shoot me...

(Giro attacks Aile, who has no choice but to defeat him. Soon, she is aiming her
Buster at him, but her arm is wavering.)

Aile: Stop it! Giro, you have to fight it!

Giro: Grr... aaagh!

(A thunderbolt strikes Giro, who crumples to the ground.)

Aile: Girooo!

(She runs towards him.)

????: Model X, the blue Mega Man... Model Z, the red Mega Man... Such
disappointments. The Biometal the Guardians found might as well have been tin
scrapings.

(The three appear again.)

Aile: Who are you!?

Serpent: The name is Serpent. I rule all that lies before me. I am the Model W
Mega Man!

Aile: Serpent!? You're the president of Slither Inc.!

Serpent: I see my reputation precedes me. You'd do well to remember me, blue
Mega Man!

(Aile aims her Buster at him.)

Aile: You're the one behind the Mavericks and what happened to Giro!

???? (female): You're shaking... Is it anger... Or fear?

???? (male): Hmph, at least the red one was more of a challenge than this one.

Aile: How could you!?

(She charges her Buster.)

Serpent: Prometheus.

Prometheus: Ah, poor blue Mega Man. What you mistake for courage is nothing more
than mere recklessness.

Aile: Quiet!

(She shoots, but Prometheus reflects it back at her.)

Aile: No!

Serpent: Chosen ones like us, who can control the Biometal's M.E.G.A. system and
transform. We are called Mega Men. The chosen few are the shepherds for guiding
the flock in a new world. But you've proven with your pathetic abilities that
not all Mega Men are fit to rule.

(Serpent raises a hand. Lightning strikes Aile, who collapses and demerges with
Model X.)

Aile: Yaaah!

Serpent: Pull the password data out of them.

Pandora: Understood...

(She sends over some machines and begins to pull the data out.)

Prometheus: That was far too easy. What should we do with them?

Serpent: Leave them to the Mavericks and carry on as you were. A battle between
the evil Mavericks and the good Slither Inc. security force. Classic. The people
of this town will go on with their lives as usual. We need the facade of peace
to continue on just a little bit longer. Eventually they will all become a
glorious sacrifice for Model W.

Aile: W-what did you say!?

(Pandora revceives her machines back.)

Pandora: Password data retrieval complete...

Serpent: Gyahaha! Now we have all of the passwords. Let's go. It's time to
proceed with Project Haven.

(Serpent and Pandora teleport away.)

Prometheus: These two are already finished? This was far easier than we had
foreseen.

(He teleports away.)

Aile: Agh... I... can't move...

Giro: Never... give up... You still have something... you must protect.

Aile: Giro! You're awake!

Giro: Model Z, listen... Don't worry... about me...

Model Z: Do you know what you're asking? Your body is already beyond recovery.
If you transform back, you will not survive the wounds...

Giro: Please... lend your strength... to Aile...

Model Z: Alright, I will...

Giro: Aile... don't... give up.

(Giro demerges with Model Z and dies, disappearing. A Cyber-Elf floats away.)

Aile: Giro! Giro!!! It's all my fault! I never should have charged into this!

Model X: Aile. This is your last chance. If you combine the power from the two
Biometal fragments, you might be able to transform again. I can't be certain
whether or not you'll be able to bear the strain when the two fragments are
combined.

(A group of Mavericks surround her and the Biometal.)

Model Z: It's your decision. You alone must make it. Do you have the will to
fight? Do you have what it takes to continue where that brave man left off?

(Anime cutscene. Aile reaches out for the Biometal.)

Aile: Model X... Model Z... Power... I need your power. I need to protect the
people, all of them! Lend me your strength to fight for those I care about!

(Aile grabs both Biometal and blasts the Mavericks away by transforming into
Model ZX. Anime cutscene ends.)

Model X: Aile... our strength...

Model Z: Is yours! And Giro's sprit is also with you!

Aile: Serpent! I'll make you pay for what you did today!

(She runs to the right, only to see Serpent's ship start to rise.)

Aile: That's a Slither Inc. airship!

(She chases it, but it flies away.)

Aile: Giro... I... I...

Prairie: Aile... The battle between the Mavericks and the security force has
begun. You can't stay there. It's too dangerous. Return to HQ immediately.

Aile: Prairie... I will join you in your fight. I won't let them get away with
this! I will protect everyone!

(She heads over to Guardian HQ, still merged with Model ZX.)

Aile: I'm such a fool. Giro knew I was in over my head and tried to stop me, but
I rushed in anyway. Giro saved me again... Why did I have to be the one to make
it out alive?

Prairie: Aile... Don't start thinking like that.

Aile: Huh?

Prairie: Giro gave his life protecting you. Don't ever forget how much he cared
about you.

Aile: Giro...

Prairie: We've analyzed the data and foud out a few things. Model W has the
power to corrupt machines and humans alike. That's what has been causing the
Maverick outbreaks. But Serpent only has the Model W Biometal fragment now. The
Model W Core is lying dormant somewhere waiting to be awoken. I'm not sure what
that Project Haven Serpent mentioned is... But I think he's going to try and
awaken Model W.

Aile: He's going to try and sacrifice everyone. I won't let that happen! Where
is the Model W Core now?

Prairie: I'm not sure... Some of the data was corrupt and we couldn't complete
the analysis. What I do know is that the six passwords encoded into the Biometal
fragments are the keys. Combined they will unlock the seal that contains the
core. I managed to get Model X and Model Z first...

Aile: Serpent already has the other four. We're going to have to fight and take
them away!

Prairie: I'm going to simulate the data and narrow down the Biometal locations
using the Maverick signatures. Once I get a mission plan together, I'll add that
information to the transerver. Aile you're not alone in the way you feel right
now. Please don't forget that. Get Serpent... for Giro.

(She sits back down. Aile heads over to the transerver.)

Operator: Aile! I sent a yellow card key to the server. You'll be able to open
yellow doors with it.

(Aile receives the Yellow Card Key.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 6 - Search the Plant
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Aile takes the mission "Search the Plant." She heads over to Area E.)

Prairie: The plant... It's still active and producing energy. According to the
database, it has been offline ever since the Maverick raid. There's something
fishy going on. Be careful Aile.

(Aile travels through the area until she finds a room full of Cyber-Elves.)

Aile: What are these things? I saw one when Giro disappeared.

Prairie: This signature... Cyber-elves!?

Aile: Cyber-elves? What's a Cyber-elf?

Prairie: Sentient programs created with pure energy and made in the image of
elves. I don't understand why there are so many of them here. That power
plant... It must be using the Cyber-elves to generate power!

Aile: It looks like we found out what's up with this place.

Prairie: Unbelievable! Cyber-elves are all sentient beings like the rest of us!
Aile, please, you must shut down that power plant!

(Aile continues until she encounters a winged Reploid on a junked machine. It
hovers down in front of her.)

Hivolt: Hmph. Now how did a little girl come wandering all the way out here? I
should have known better than to rely on Maverick grunts.

Aile: You're one of Serpent's men? For a Maverick, you sure are chatty.

Hivolt: You've done your research. It looks like I can skip the introduction.
However, make no mistake, I'm not just a simple puppet like those Mavericks. I'm
an artificial Mega Man created to draw out the power of the Biometal. I'm Model
H Pseudoroid, Hivolt. Have no fear. It'll all be over soon. You'll feel just a
little jolt before you sleep forever!

(The two fight. Aile defeats Hivolt.)

Hivolt: Hah... The energy we've produced here is already well on its way to Lord
Serpent. All that's left is for him to hack into the Model W Core. Poor
misguided fool. Your end draws near as a new age is beginning!

(He explodes, leaving Model H floating.)

Model H: I am the Biometal of the Wind, Model H. Thank you for saving me, young
hero.

Aile: Please, I need your help Model H. I have to defeat Serpent and prevent the
resurrection of Model W.

Model H: Do you think that will end this?

Aile: Huh?

Model H: All of this was started by a single man. Even if you destroy the Model
W Core and stop Serpent... What's to stop another madman from rising up and
taking his place?

Aile: How am I supposed to know that? What I do know is that Serpent is
deceiving all of the people in this country. I'm the only one that sees through
it! I can't just let this happen!

Model H: Hmph. Those humans we fought so hard to protect hundreds of years ago
have been lulled into a false sense of security by the empty promise of peace.
But I still believe our fighting had meaning. So, young hero, yes I will lend
you my strength. Serpent has separated my data into two halves. There is another
Pseudoroid with the other part. If you can defeat it, I will be able to give you
my password.

(Model H joins Aile. Aile heads over to a transerver and reports the mission.
She receives a green card key.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 7 - Find the Survivors
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Aile takes the mission "Find the Survivors." She heads over to Area F.)

Prairie: The distress call definitely came from this area. The signal is too
weak to pinpoint the exact location.

Aile: I guess it's up to me to find it then. I'll check further back.

(Aile continues until she detects a signal.)

????: ...

Aile: Hello!? Is anyone here? I've come to help!

????: ...

Aile: Hmm... No one's around.

Prairie: The source of the signal is definitely coming from near your position.
The device emitting the signal should be close. Try to locate it.

(Aile finds a room with a computer.)

Aile: Prairie, I'm near the terminal that was sending out the distress call. But
I don't see anyone around.

Prairie: What? I wonder what could have happened there?

(Suddenly, the computer comes to life.)

Aile: Hmm.... It looks like there's a data disk still in the terminal.

Computer: I don't have much longer. I pray that this data doesn't fall into the
wrong hands.

(It shows an image of several scientists examining Model W.)

Computer: The recon unit has unearthed a strange metal in this area. It seems...
conscious. The commander called it "Biometal Model W." We continued to research
it, until one day, when we were just about ready to give up... One of our own
went mad and destroyed our unit. He erased the data and vanished with the
Biometal.

(Screen pans to reveal a younger Serpent examining the Biometal.)

Computer: His name was Serpent, and he was always the most passionate about our
research into the Model W fragment. I will attempt to record what little is
known about the cause of his insanity below...

(The computer dies.)

Aile: This is where the data ends...

Prairie: Sis... This is a report from the first commander's recon unit! The
distress call must have been activated to make sure someone would find this
data. But the recon unit is... gone.

Aile: Prairie... Serpent was a member of the Guardians!?

Prairie: I didn't know either! There was nothing about that in the HQ database!

Aile: Slither Inc. might have the other half of the data. Prairie, where's that
enemy Biometal signature?

Prairie: I'm reading the Biometal signature just beyond the locked door. We'll
hack the lock from Guardian HQ.

Aile: Thanks Prairie!

(Aile continues until she encounters Lurerre.)

Lurerre: Oh my! What's that disk you've got there? Agh! I thought I told you
Mavericks to leave anything of importance to me! Hmph! Worthless fool!

Aile: I should have known you were after this data disk! Where's the rest!?

Lurerre: Oh my my... You must be one of those horrid interlopers trying to stop
poor Lord Serpent's plan. Well hmph! I'm not telling you anything, so how do you
like that!? I am the lovely Pseudoroid Model L, Lurerre. I'm going to tear you
apart piece by piece! Prepare for the end little girl!

(The two fight. Aile defeats Lurerre.)

Lurerre: Oh my... Oh my... Goodbye cruel world. How could this be! Done in by a
creepy little runt!

(She explodes, leaving Model L behind.)

Model L: I am the Biometal of the Ice, Model L. Thank you for freeing me from
that awful body. You're looking for the rest of the data disk right? I'm sorry,
but it has already been taken away somewhere. A hundred years have passed since
the war, but it looks like some things will never change.

Aile: There's a man named Serpent and he is trying to awaken Model W. I'm going
to need your help and the password to stop him.

Model L: Hmm... Model Z, I heard the story about Serpent. I know you are linked
with a host body, but I heard he beat you in combat.

Model Z: Yes... My failure led to the death of a good man named Giro.

Model L: I see... Alright, I'll join you. It should be an interesting challenge
to take on the one who bested the great Model Z. I'll give you my password, but
the data is split into two halves. The other Pseudoroid with my power has the
remaining half. I won't be able to give you the complete password until you
defeat him.

(Model L joins Aile. Aile heads over to a transerver, reports the mission, turns
in the Data Disk 1, and receives a Blue Card Key.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 8 - Fight the Mavericks
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Aile accepts the mission called "Fight the Mavericks." She transports over to
Area G. She travels until she finds Maquereau.)

Maquereau: Oww... The other Guardians went further on to try and save more
people. They were surrounded by Mavericks and haven't come back. Use this old
portable transerver. Please, you have to save everyone!

(Aile heads into the facility. She finds another Guardian, Chene, near the
entrance.)

Chene: I came here to try and help people, but I can't get through the flames.
You could use the dash jump to leap over them! Please! Do whatever you can to
help the others!

(She teleports away. Aile finds Allen, a little boy, on the bottom floor.)

Allen: Nooo! I can't find Bosch! Someone! Please save him!

(He teleports away. Aile finds a Guardian, Platane, on the 5th floor.)

Platane: Thank you for coming to save us! Just remember to transform back to
normal before talking to people. Otherwise they'll be too afraid to accept your
help. Of course us Guardians know you and won't be afraid.

(She teleports away. Aile finds Gayark, a Slither Inc. employee, in the 1st
room.)

Gayark: Why me!? How did I end up in this mess? Hey, you there! Would you give
me a hand? I'll make it worth your while! This is nothing compared to the value
of a life. Please take it. It's yours!

(He teleports away, leaving behind some E-Crystals. Aile finds an old man named
Kaspar in the 2nd room's window.)

Kaspar: I was too slow and couldn't escape in time. If you hadn't come along, I
would have become one extra crispy old man. There are a lot of others that need
rescuing.

(He teleports away. Aile finds a Guardian, Banite, in the 3rd room.)

Banite: You there! Are you here to help with the rescue operation? Beyond that
window, one of us went inside to help, but the fire has surrounded them and now
they are trapped. If you stand in front of the window and press up on the
+Control Pad, you can enter inside.

(He teleports away. Aile enters the window. She finds another Guardian, Sole.)

Sole: We came to help too, but we got surrounded by the flames. There are others
who need your help in the area. Please, you have to help them! Oh! By the way,
make sure you aren't transformed when you talk to the townspeople.

(He teleports away. Aile finds a girl, Sonya, in the 4th room.)

Sonya: Thank you for saving me. There are other people trapped here too. You can
reach the next building over from the top floor... The sprinkler system controls
are over there and locked. Take this key and you should be able to access them.

(She unlocks the 8th room and teleports away. Aile looks in the window of the
5th room and finds Thalia.)

Thalia: It's so hot and scary... Where are mommy and daddy? I want to see mommy
and daddy! I wanna go home!

(She teleports away. Aile finds an injured girl, Silvia, in the 5th room.)

Silvia: I sprained my ankle and fell behind. I was worried I wouldn't make it
out of here alive since I couldn't move. I'm so lucky you came along when you
did! Please, take this.

(She teleports away, leaving an energy capsule. Aile finds a boy, Malisan, in
the window of the 6th room.)

Malisan: Did you come to help us? Thank you... I think someone is controlling
the Mavericks. This fire is all his fault! He should be at the top of this
building, getting ready to head to the next one over. You've got to teach him
that if you play with fire, you get burned!

(He teleports away. Aile finds a man, Luke, on the 7th floor.)

Luke: *cough cough* Who are you? Did you come to save us? As you can see, this
room is covered in smoke. Some of the people escaped through the room windows.
They might still be waiting for help on the other side.

(He teleports away. Aile continues searching through the facility until she
encounters Fistleo.)

Fistleo: Ah the Guardian's Mega Man has arrived... To think their great hero
would be just a little girl. But I suppose if the Mavericks have chosen you,
then you must be the one.

Aile: Mavericks choosing me? What are you talking about!?

Fistleo: The Mavericks were not causing all of that trouble just for fun you
know. They were trying to locate the perfect vessel for Model W. It is all tied
into the holders of the Biometal. The chosen ones. The Mega Men. You. After all,
you survived the Maverick raid those many years ago.

Aile: Are you trying to say the Mavericks let me live!? That can't be!

Fistleo: Ah, it appears you are not willing to accept the truth. It does not
matter, Model W will have the sacrifice it requires. The name is Fistleo, I am
the Model F Pseudoroid. If you will not accept your destiny, then you will have
to accept your end.

(The two battle. Aile defeats Fistleo.)

Fistleo: How could this happen!? I was transformed into a Pseudoroid... I was
supposed to have the power of a god... But I was beaten by a little girl!

(He explodes, leaving behind Model F.)

Model F: Yahoo! Thanks for saving me! I am the Biometal of the Flame, Model F!
Let's get a move on! Who are we gonna take down next?

Aile: W-wait! I haven't even explained anything yet!

Model F: I know, I know, Serpent is up to something sneaky with that Model W.
It's all so complicated. I don't really know what's going on. I just know that
he used my power to do his dirty work. If you're out for payback, I'm your
model! Got a problem with that?

Aile: Well no...

Model F: Oh, the password. Sorry, but I can't give the whole thing to you yet.
Serpent split my power down the middle and the other part is with another
Pseudoroid. If you can take that one down, I can give you the password.

(Model F joins Aile. Aile reports the mission and receives the Red Card Key.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 9 - Secure the Biometal
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Aile accepts the mission called "Secure the Biometal." She transports over to
Area H.)

Prairie: Aile! Mavericks are concentrating in that area! It looks like they're
after the Biometal too, so be careful!

Aile: ...

Prairie: Aile? Did you hear me? What's wrong?

Aile: Oh! I'm okay. I'm going to proceed with the mission now. I can't believe I
have to fight here...

(Aile eventually encounters a giant Mettool and destroys it.)

Aile: Hmm, this isn't the one with the Biometal. I wonder where it could be?

Prairie: Aile, what's going on? You've been acting strange ever since this
mission started.

Aile: Prairie, can you tell me where that Biometal signature is coming from!?
Just hurry up and tell me!

Prairie: Aile, calm down! What's going on with you?

Aile: Ten years ago I was attacked by Mavericks... I was separated from my mom
during the panic, and Giro is the one that found and rescued me.

Prairie: You were there ten years ago during the Maverick raid...

Aile: This place has a lot of memories for me, both good and bad. I just don't
want anything to happen to those memories. I want them to stay the way they are.

Prairie: Now I understand. I'm sorry, I...

Aile: No, I'm sorry. I was getting all worked up with the memories of my mom and
Giro flooding back.

Prairie: Aile, please remember that you are never alone. You've got me and the
other Guardians... And you've got Giro watching over you too. We'll save this
country together.

Aile: Thank you Prairie. Recommencing mission!

(She continues until she sees Purprill.)

Purprill: Ook! Ook! So a Maverick has come to take me back eh? Lord Serpent just
doesn't understand how to treat his employees!

Aile: So you're the one with the Biometal! I'm sorry but I'll be taking it now.

Purprill: Oh, so you're not one of the Mavericks? Then get out of my park!

Aile: I'm the one with the memories here. You get out of my park!

Purprill: Ook? You aren't actually going to challenge an officer of Slither Inc.
are you? This should be interesting. I'll show you just how powerful the
Pseudoroid Purprill really is!

(The two fight. Aile defeats Purprill.)

Purprill: N-nooo! I'm to powerful to be beaten! I'm an... officer... I should
be... unstoppable... Ooook!!!

(He explodes, leaving Model P behind.)

Model P: Drowning in his own power... What an appropriate end for a low-life
that wanted it so badly. I am the Biometal of the Shadows, Model P. You fought
bravely. Model X, since you are lending your power to this one, am I to assume
the time has come?

Model X: It has. Someone is trying to revive Model W. Will you help us stop him?

Model P: It is our destiny across the ages to protect the world of Man. Let us
once again become humanity's blade for striking down evil. I apologize that I
cannot hand over the password. Serpent split my data up into two parts. The
other part is contained in a different Pseudoroid. As long as that Psuedoroid is
operational, you will never reach Model W.

Aile: I better stay alert if there's another enemy out there with the power of
Model P.

(Model P joins Aile. Aile reports the mission and gets the Purple Card Key.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 10 - Attack on Guardian HQ
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Prairie calls Aile after she finishes her 4th mission report.)

Prairie: Aile! Can you hear me!? Come in! HQ radar has spotted multiple Slither
Inc. airships! Their fleet is flying full speed straight at us! Aile! Get back
here! We need your help!

(Aile transports back to Guardian HQ and goes to the Command Center.)

Aile: Prairie, what's the current situation with the enemy fleet!?

Prairie: Not good! They're right on top of us! This ship wasn't designed for
heavy battle. If the enemy boards us, we're done for!

(The alarm rings. The ship shakes.)

Operator: Slither Inc.'s fleet has fired an opening volley! Returning fire!

Prairie: All hands man the port and starboard machine guns! Don't let them get
any closer!

(The ship shakes again.)

Prairie: Aile! You have to get to the deck and do what you can to stop those
boarding parties!

Aile: I'm on it! I won't let anyone get hurt! I'll keep every last Guardian
safe!

(Aile heads out onto the deck and destroys several Mechaniloids. Another robot
deployer lands. Anime cutscene. Numerous Mechaniloids dash out the deployer and
head into the ship, as well as Prometheus and Pandora. Anime cutscene ends.)

Aile: Wait a second. I've seen them before!

Prairie: Enemy troops have boarded the ship! They're heading for the engine room
down below! You have to get down there and protect the engines! Hurry!

Aile: Hmph! I'll stop 'em!

(Aile heads towards the engine room. Meanwhile, Prairie, Maquereau, Prometheus,
and Pandora are in the engine room.)

Maquereau: Hey you! Stand away from the reactor!

(He fires, but Pandora blocks with her shield.)

Pandora: Move aside...

(Aile enters the room and stands between the two Guardians and the Reploids.)

Aile: Prairie! Are you okay?

Prairie: Aile!

Pandora: You... The girl from before... Model X... Model Z... together...

Prometheus: Or should we just say Model ZX now? I came here to crush the
Guardians once and for all, but it's such a shame it has to end so easily. I'll
find out whether or not you're worthy of being a pawn in his grand game!

Aile: Game!? Who's game!?

Pandora: Prometheus... It's not fair...

Prometheus: Don't worry, I'll be sure to leave some fun for you. That is unless
she's too fragile and gets blown to pieces.

(Pandora teleports out.)

Prairie: Aile!

Aile: Stay back Prairie! I'll take care of him!

(Prairie and Maquereau leave. Aile and Prometheus battle. Aile defeats him.)

Prometheus: Interesting... You're more powerful than I expected. You are worthy
of being one of us. Consider yourself part of the game!

Aile: One of you!? You must be joking!

Prometheus: Your name was Aile, wasn't it? Well, I like your spirit, so I'll let
you off this time!

(Prometheus starts to fly upwards. Aile runs towards him.)

Aile: W-wait!
Prometheus: Aile! You still have a long way to grow before you can hope to
challenge us. Come to us when you are ready! Model W will be waiting with open
arms!

(He teleports away. Prairie runs back inside.)

Prairie: Aile! Are you alright?

Aile: Who... am... I?

Operator: Commander Prairie! The enemy fleet is moving away!

Prairie: The enemy has retreated. I want a damage report! And make sure the
wounded get priority.

Operator: Understood.

Prairie: Aile, come back to the command center.

(Aile and Prairie head over to the command center.)

Aile: You have to tell me everything you know! Who am I? Why was Giro watching
over me all of those years!?

Prairie: Calm down Aile! I don't know much about what's going on either. The one
that gave Giro the order to protect you was the first commander.

Aile: By first commander, you mean your sister right?

Prairie: The order was to protect anyone that survived the Maverick raid. At
first I didn't understand why she would give such an order. But when I saw Giro
transform into the Model Z Mega Man, I finally understood the reason. Survivors
of Maverick raids share the ability to transform with the power of the Biometal.
People like you and Giro. I'm telling you the truth when I say that's all I
know. I have no idea why some are chosen to be Mega Men while others are not.
I'm guessing the only one who knows the real truth behind all of this is
Serpent.

Aile: So if I want the truth, I'm going to have to keep fighting. Alright then,
give me my next mission. I have to find out just who I really am!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 11 - Save the People
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Aile accepts the mission "Save the People." She heads over to Area I.)

Prairie: The life signs look like they're located in the very back of the area.
Since you defeated the one in charge of the power plant operation, some of the
equipment isn't functioning now. If you could just find a way to get the
electricity flowing...

Aile: Alright, I'll find some way to get the power back on.

(Aile travels through the area until she encounters Hurricaune.)

Hurricaune: Let me guess, you're here to save the poor folks in the next room?
Quite the little heroine aren't you? They're valuable sacrifices for the
resurrection of Model W. Cyber-elves exposed to data on fear are the key to
reviving Model W. I am the Model H Pseudoroid, Hurricaune! You're about to
become the next sacrifice. Just make sure to scream for me!

(The two battle. Aile defeats Hurricaune.)

Hurricaune: Hah... Not bad... Do whatever you want with the people in the next
room... It won't matter anyway. Model W's awakening will still come to pass!
Ahahaha!

(Hurricaune explodes, leaving behind the other half of Model H.)

Model H: It looks like you've recovered the password and my power. I am
grateful. However, it will take time to reassemble the password into something
you can use. Please be patient.

(The other half of Model H joins Aile. Aile comes into a room where several
townspeople are being held behind a barrier.)

Prairie: The people are in that room. You have to free them.

(Aile smashes the lock with her weapon. The people come out.)

Leonardo: W-we're saved!!! We were just about to become Cyber-elves! Thank you
for rescuing us!

Aile: You were going to "become" Cyber-elves? What do you mean?

Leonardo: Those bad guys, they steal our memories and change us into Cyber-
elves. They were also trying to scare us before we changed. I saw them... I saw
the others changing one-by-one into those Cyber-elves.

Prairie: So that's how they were able to create so many of them... They're even
crueler than I had imagined. We'll send the people back to town. Thank you for
saving them, Aile.

(The people teleport away. Aile reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 12 - Recover the Disk
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Aile accepts the mission "Recover the Disk." She heads over to Area J.)

Prairie: The data disk contains the report that Sis was working on while she was
in the recon unit.

Aile: So that disk is going to contain the rest of the data that was missing
from the one we found at the distress call terminal.

Prairie: We found the enemy delivery unit along with a Biometal signature. There
must be something important stored on that disk. The Biometal signature is
further back in the same area. Be careful Aile.

(Aile travels through the area until she encounters Leganchor.)

Leganchor: Hwahaha! So you're the great Mega Man that keeps trying to interfere
with our plans. I suppose it's asking too much to expect someone so young to
understand what we're trying to do. You should respect your elders and listen to
us old folk.

Aile: You're asking for respect when you're going around hiding the truth from
people? Yeah, you're a great role model.

Leganchor: Hwahaha! Sometimes ignorance is bliss little one! I am the Model L
Pseudoroid, Leganchor. It looks like I'll have to teach you some respect.

(The two battle. Aile defeats Leganchor.)

Leganchor: Why... Why do you fight so hard? Why do you risk your life for those
fools? Youth is wasted... on the young...

(Leganchor explodes, leaving behind the other half of Model L and Data Disk 2.)

Model L: How could anyone give my power to someone like that!? I'm sorry, it'll
take some time to recover the password. I'll make sure it's available before you
have to take on Model W.

(The other half of Model L joins Aile. Aile picks up the Data Disk 2.)

Prairie: Aile, the data disk, is...

Aile: Yes, the recon unit report is on it.

????: Serpent wiped out the recon unit and vanished with the Model W fragment.
Others had come into contact with the fragment, so I don't understand the reason
Serpent was the only one affected. If I recall correctly, there was one thing
that was different. He was a Maverick raid survivor. His passion for research
must have been linked to his fear. Model W must have been able to manipulate his
emotions. However, that still leaves the question of what Model W is after... I
don't have much longer. I pray that this data doesn't fall into the wrong hands.

Prairie: Serpent was awfully worried about the data leaking out. He must have
known the reaction the people of this country would have if they knew the truth.
Send the data disk along with your mission report. We can't allow the
information contained on it to get out until we know exactly what it is.

Aile: So Serpent is a survivor of Maverick raids just like me... If he became
what he is now. What's to stop me from becoming the same thing?

Prairie: Aile, you won't become the same as him. Remember the courage you showed
when you saved me. If you hold onto that purity, you won't stray from the right
path.

Aile: ...

(Aile sends a mission report and the Data Disk 2.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 13 - Attack the Excavators
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Aile accepts the mission "Attack the Excavators." She heads to Area K.)

Prairie: The dig sites looks like it continues deep underground. Try to find a
way down there.

(Aile heads underground and then encounters Maquereau.)

Maquereau: We were sent here to check out the trap in the area. According to
reports, lava flows through the next area and sweeps intruders away. That lava
will do you in if you come into contact with it.

(Aile meets up wit Flammole.)

Flammole: Hmm? Oh... It's you. You're the one goin' around stealin' the
Biometal. I could feel your presence a mile away. It was drilling straight
through the ground to me. Lord Serpent said there was an even more powerful
Biometal buried deep beneath the surface. But! Nothin' is comin' up! I am the
Model F Pseudoroid, Flammole. I'll take ya down and the Biometal you stole will
be back, safe in our hands!

(The two fight. Aile defeats Flammole.)

Flammole: I see now... You weren't the one I sensed... It musta been... Model W?
Or... Is it somethin' else entirely!? Aaagh!

(He explodes, leaving behind the other half of Model F.)

Model F: Haha! What a waste that a loser like that had my power! Sorry, but
it'll be some time before I can recover that password. Don't worry, I'll get it
for you.

(The other half of Model F joins Aile. Aile reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 14 - Protect the Lab
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Aile accepts the mission "Protect the Lab" and transports over to Area L.)

Prairie: Aile! The enemy has commenced their attack! If we don't hurry, all of
the data in the research lab will be lost! The room with the data should be up
ahead!

(Aile continues through the area until she meets Protectos.)

Protectos: You've come at last... The fooslish Mega Man who has sided with the
Guardians. All of the data that was found here is now in my internal data disk.
I just need to destroy this room with you in it, and all of the loose ends will
be tied up. I am the Model P Pseudoroid, Protectos! I will crush anyone that
stands in our way!

(The two fight. Aile defeats Protectos.)

Protectos: Ugh! No! How could anyone break through my armor! Rrraaagh!

(He explodes, leaving behind the other half of Model P and Data Disk 3.)

Model P: Oh how the mighty have fallen. Strong armor is nothing compared to the
power of will. It will take some time before I am capable of recovering the
password. The password will be ready when you need it.

(The other half of Model P joins Aile.)

Prairie: That data disk was left behind by Sis. It had to be. Make sure you
don't forget to pick it up.

(Aile picks up the Data Disk 3.)

????: Biometal Report Classification #555913 * Chosen One * This message is
intended for the chosen one who will someday find the Biometal I have created.
In order... fight... Model W... causing the Maverick...

Aile: No good. It looks like the data is corrupt.

Prairie: We might still have something that can recover the data at HQ. Please
send it to us along with your mission report.

(Aile reports the mission and sends the Data Disk 3.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 15 - The Message
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Prairie contacts Aile once she reported the last mission.)

Prairie: We finally have all six Biometal fragments. We must regroup and
prepare. Head back to HQ.

(Aile heads back to Guardian HQ and goes to the command center. Prairie stands.)

Prairie: Good work. We've successfully recovered the content on the data disk
you brought back from the research lab. It was left behind by Sis after all.

Aile: It seemed to be a report on the Biometal. There was some kind of message
on it too.

Prairie: The message is to the chosen one. In other words, you. I'm going to
play it back now.

Aile: ...

????: Biometal Report Classification #555913 * Chosen One * This message is
intended for the chosen one who will someday find the Biometal I have created.
In order to fight against Model W, which has been causing the Maverick
outbreaks, I have constructed Model X and Model Z with the data I have obtained
on ancient heroes. There is still so much I don't understand... And I was forced
to use the research on Model W as a basis for constructing the other two models.
In other words, the ones with the potential to use Model X and Z, are the same
one with the potential to unleash Model W. As a chosen one, you have the power
to save or destroy the world. I can only hope you use the power for good and
that you will decide to guide the people to a bright future.

Aile: ...

Prairie: The chosen one can decide their own path. They can become a hero, or
they can control the world. That explains why Prometheus said you were one of
them.

Aile: The power within me is for protecting the people and ideals I care about.
I refuse to be anything like Prometheus and the others!

Model X: I'm relieved to hear you say that, Aile. It looks as if all of the
passwords have been reassembled. With them, you can enter the ruins where the
Model W Core lies.

Aile: We should hurry! They're already digging and must be close to the core by
now.

Prairie: You're right! I'll enter the mission data into the transerver right
away! Aile, I believe in you.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 16 - Stop the Dig
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Aile accepts the mission "Stop the Dig" and heads to Area M. She finds a door,
but it is locked.)

Aile: Model W must be nearby.

Model Z: We'll open the door when you're ready.

Aile: I'm ready. Open it.

Model X: Everyone... Input your passwords.

(The Biometal float around Aile.)

Model H: I am the wind that blows through the sky, Ventus Airus.

(A green light lands on a lock.)

Model L: I am the water that flows across the land, Glacius Passio.

(A blue light lands on a lock.)

Model F: I am the fire that brings heat to all life, Flamma Wies.

(A red light lands on a lock.)

Model P: I am the shadow that never leaves the side of justice, Umbra Profess.

(A purple light lands on a lock.)

Model X: I am the light that illuminates all possibilities, Lumine Infinitus...

(A light blue light lands on a lock.)

Model Z: I am the courage that fights for beliefs, Fortitude Creed...

(A light red light lands on a lock. The lights merge onto the topmost lock. The
Biometal head back to Aile.)

Model X: Let's go!

Model Z: The rest is up to you.

(Aile travels through the area until Serpent teleports down in front of her.)

Serpent: Well well, it looks like you found me. I never imagined that you could
survive this long, child.

Aile: Serpent!

Serpent: It's a shame you're too late. Witness the power to control the world!
The true form of Model W!

(Aile notices a giant machine in the background.)

Aile: !!!

Serpent: Do you feel it!? Its glorious presence is starting to rise! Even the
precious Biometal in your possession is insignificant compared to the might of
Model W! Finally, the power is mine! All of it! Pandora!

(Pandora teleports in.)

Serpent: The young lady has honored us with her presence. Make sure to take good
care of her.

Pandora: I will...

Serpent: Project Haven is now in its final stage! Gaze upon the beginning of a
brand new age!

(He teleports away.)

Pandora: Model ZX... Mega Man... You will not... interfere...

(They fight. Aile defeats Pandora. The ground begins to shake, and the machine
rises away.)

Aile: No! Model W!

Pandora: The wheel of fate... in motion... No on can stop... our destiny of
destruction... Not you... Not Serpent... No one...

Aile: Huh!?

(Pandora teleports away. The ground stops shaking.)

Aile: Destiny of destruction!? Just what are they up to!?

Prairie: Aile! The Slither Inc. fleet is on the move!

Aile: I couldn't stop them from digging up Model W! Can you catch them?

Prairie: We'll do what we can! Hold on! Wh-what's this!? There is a massive
outbreak of Mavericks detected in the western region of Area D! The readings are
off the chart and interfering with our ability to track Model W!

Aile: Serpent. How appropriate that you would slither away from me like a snake
in the grass!

Prairie: I've added the mission data for the Mavericks! Get prepared and start
the mission ASAP! I'll do what I can to get a fix on Model W's signature!

Aile: Please do what you can!

(Aile reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 17 - Repel the Army
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Aile accepts the mission "Repel the Army" and heads over to Area O.)

Prairie: Aile! You made it to Area O. The Maverick army is drawing closer to the
residential district with every passing second. We need to stop them and avoid
as many Guardian casualties as possible. Find the Maverick leading them and take
it out!

(Aile continues until she finds Prometheus and Pandora.)

Aile: Surprise, surprise. You two are the ones behind all this, Pandora and
Prometheus!

Prometheus: Well, we've finally drawn the curtain and have arrived at our final
act! All of the chosen Mega Men are together for the grand finale. We are all
the same. Lives brought together by some cursed fate that hangs over our heads.

Aile: I'm nothing like you!

Pandora: On the contrary... You are the same... A Mega Man... Holder of the
power... Controller of Biometal...

Prometheus: Serpent has done well for us. Just digging up Model W was enough for
him to serve his purpose. Too bad Model W is too much for his weak will to
handle and he'll end up losing more and more of his soul as time passes.

Aile: So you've been using Serpent the whole time!

Pandora: It's too late... Model W... about to awaken.

Prometheus: We'll keep you occupied while you wait Mega Man... Model ZX!

(The three fight. Aile defeats Prometheus and Pandora.)

Aile: What are you trying to accomplish!? And why do I have to be involved in
all of this!?

Pandora: It is destiny... Mega Men must fight until only one remains.

Prometheus: Hah-hahaha! If you want to know the truth, you'll have to fight!
You. Serpent. Us. We are all just pawns on the great board. His board.

(They teleport away.)

Prairie: The Maverick activity is finally subsiding. You must have taken out
their leader!

Aile: This fight is far from over. Have you managed to narrow down Model W's
location?

Prairie: I'm sorry. We're going to need a little more time with that. Aile, come
back to Guardian HQ while we try to find it.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 18 - Model W's Location
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Aile and Prairie are in the Guardian HQ command center.)

Prairie: Aile. We've tracked down Model W's location. It's in the tallest
building right in the center of the country - Slither Inc's head office. I'm
detecting a huge concentration of energy amassing within the building. Something
big is about to happen. It's going to be dangerous.

Aile: It probably will be, but I don't have much choice now.

Prairie: Aile. I know it's a little late for this, but... I'm so sorry that I
didn't tell you about Giro and his mission to watch over you. Please believe me
when I say that we didn't want to deceive you. Giro's face always lit up so much
when he talked about you... Giro... He loved you very much.

Aile: Prairie, did you have feelings for him?

Prairie: W-what!?

Aile: Hahaha! Maybe Giro resembles someone you cared about. Every time you talk
about him, you look so happy. Don't worry, I won't hold it against you if you
did like him. It's thanks to all of you that I'm finally able to fight for
what's important.

Prairie: Aile...

Aile: I'll be right back. I'm going to finish this battle. For the people of
this country, and to honor the memory of the man we cared about.

Prairie: The final mission data has been added to the transerver. Aile. Make
sure you come back to us okay?


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 19 - Destroy Model W
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Aile accepts the mission "Destroy Model W and transports to Slither Inc.
Eventually, she encounters Hivolt again.)

Hivolt: The curtain is rising on a new age! Unfortunately, you won't be around
to see it. The light of the new world burns too brightly for people like you!

(They fight. Aile defeats Hivolt.)

Hivolt: *cough cough* I have no fear of the end! My spirit will fuse with Model
W and Lord Serpent!

(He explodes. Aile then encounters Hurricaune.)

Hurricaune: Hmph. You're a real pest! Still trying to fight the inevitable. Lord
Serpent will be victorious! I'll carve you up and then you'll realize how futile
your battle was!

(They fight. Aile defeats Hurricaune.)

Hurricaune: Agh! I will continue to live on as one with Model W... I don't care
how long it takes, I will defeat you!

(She explodes. Aile then encounters Lurerre.)

Lurerre: Unbelievable! You've been bothering poor Lord Serpent this whole time!
You little brat! I'm going to grind you up!

(They fight. Aile defeats Lurerre.)

Lurerre: Oh! Lord Serpent... Take my spirit... it's yours to have! As for you, I
hope you get squished like the bug you are!

(She explodes. Aile then encounters Leganchor.)

Leganchor: Youth truly is wasted on the young. You still continue to defy Lord
Serpent!? You're blind to reality! The world that Lord Serpent is building is
the next step in humanity's evolution!

(They fight. Aile defeats Leganchor.)

Leganchor: If only you could become one with Model W, you too would understand
the truth. We must evolve... with a new world.

(He explodes. Aile then encounters Fistleo.)

Fistleo: Another chance to fight the kid. My spirit is on fire! Alright little
girl! Show me your strength!

(They fight. Aile defeats Fistleo.)

Fistleo: Even if it is only in spirit, I will continue to fight! I will become
one with Model W! This... this is what Serpent must have been saying about the
power of a god! It is incredible... Simply incredible!

(He explodes. Aile encounters Flammole.)

Flammole: Haha! You should thank me. I went through all the trouble of diggin'
your grave! Now I just have to bury ya!

(They fight. Aile defeats Flammole.)

Flammole: I can sense the shockwaves of Model W ripplin' underground... Feel
free to take your dirt nap when Model W is done with you!

(He explodes. Aile encounters Purprill.)

Purprill: Ook! Ook! It's a miracle! I'm back and feeling great! I'm sorry, this
won't be a fair fight! I'll probably take you down with one hit!

(They fight. Aile defeats Purprill.)

Purprill: Ook... Ook! Done in again! Oh well, at least I was back for a little
while. Lord Serpent! Take my spirit, I freely give it to Model W!

(He explodes. Aile encounters Protectos.)

Protectos: I never expected you to make it all the way to our head office... But
this is where your journey ends. Your smug sense of righteousness will be your
undoing!

(They fight. Aile defeats Protectos.)

Protectos: Lord Serpent... He will leave a big footprint in history! The
footprint left behind where he crushes you!

(He explodes. Aile continues until she finds a room full of Cyber-elves.)

Aile: How could there be so many Cyber-elves everywhere!?

(Aile heads through until she finds Serpent in a room with the Model W Core.)

Serpent: You must be wondering why we need so many Cyber-elves to awaken Model
W... Hmph! I child like you could never understand that! Their fright... It
becomes the power that drives Model W!

Aile: What!?

(The room starts shaking slightly. Serpent pulls out Model W.)

Serpent: Model W, it's time! The despair and fear of this country are yours!

(The Cyber-elves start being absorbed into the Model W Core.)

Serpent: By joining us, the weak are freed from their suffering! The chosen one,
Mega Man, will save the people! That is the glory of Project Haven!

Aile: Mega Man will save the people!? How is sacrificing the people of this
country going to save them!?

Serpent: Precious misguided little girl. It's time for you to come off of your
high horse. Our power is the result of many sacrifices. We are the chosen ones.
It is destiny for the last of our kind to rule. Model W is not about
destruction. It is about rebirth and evolution! I am the giver of meaning to the
lives of people who cannot keep up with the tide of evolution.

Aile: The only thing you are is afraid. Afraid of your past. Afraid of yourself
and what you've become! Your fear is what drives your desire to rule! You think
this is evolution!? Is this really what you want!?

Serpent: You think I'm doing this all out of fear? That's nonsense! The spirits
of the people have given me what I need to obtain the power of Model W! Look at
you! You're only able to stand before me today thanks to the power of Model Z
absorbed from that red Mega Man! Evolution requires sacrifice! The ones who will
determine what needs to be sacrificed are the Mega Men!

(The Model W Core stops absorbing Cyber-elves. Serpent megamerges with Model W.)

Serpent: Your fear and despair combined with my joy in victory... They shall be
the ultimate gift to Model W!

(They fight. Aile defeats Serpent.)

Serpent: Gyahahaha!

Aile: What do you find hilarious about this, Serpent?

Serpent: It's just as Prometheus and Pandora said. You are the final key. Right
now... you are being controlled by a powerful emotion...

(Serpent raises his arms.)

Serpent: Emotion so powerful it exceeds even mine!

(The Model W Core sends out a purple shockwave. Aile demerges.)

Aile: My transformation was cancelled. What's happening to me!?

(The room starts shaking.)

Serpent: The emotion driving you now... That emotion is not bravery... It's not
born out of some sense of righteousness... It's hate. Your hate for me and
everything I've taken from you!

Aile: What!?

(Anime cutscene. Model W's Core grows red, and begins to merge with Serpent.)

Serpent: Hahaha... Gyahahahahaha! The new age is beginning right now before your
very eyes. The age of the Mega Man... The destined ruler!

(End anime cutscene. Serpent and Model W's Core are merged.)

Aile: That's impossible. I'm the key to awakening the power of Model W? All my
fighting and I did nothing more than fulfill some madman's destiny!

Model X: Don't give up yet.

Model Z: Your battle is not over.

Aile: Huh!?

(The Models H, F, L, and P hover around her.)

Model H: We did not lend you our power just to let you carry out some kind of
petty revenge...

Model F: Beating up someone just because you don't like them is nothing more
than the action of a playground bully.

Model L: Don't give in to the hate. If you fight the flow, you just end up
swimming in place.

Model P: Even in the darkest tunnel, there is always a light at the end of it
for you to follow.

(Models X and Z also start to hover around her.)

Model X: Your power is not based on hate. Your real power. Your wellspring of
bravery lies within you!

Model Z: Look within yourself!

(They merge with her to form Model ZX.)

Aile: You're right. I made a promise to you on that day! I said I will protect
the people! All of them!

Serpent: Well then. If you're so sure of yourself, let's find out which Mega Man
is destined to rule the world!

Aile: I'm not interested in ruling the world! Serpent, if you want to be the
Mega Man destined to rule the world, then I am the Mega Man that is destined to
save it!

(They fight. Aile defeats Model W.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 20 - Your Own Destiny
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(The room starts to fall apart.)

Aile: This is the end of the line. I will never become like you!

Serpent: Never become like me, eh? Gyahaha! You just don't get it do you? The
Mega Men are all designed with one purpose, to destroy each other and survive to
control Model W. It's all just a game, his game. We are all pieces on the board,
and the winner becomes the ruler of the world!

Aile: "His game!?"

Serpent: Ah yes! His blood flows in your veins too! The man who made Model W!

Aile: No... No, that can't be!

(The Biometal demerge and hover around her again.)

Model X: Aile! Everything's falling apart! You've got to get out of here!

(Anime cutscene. The building falls apart.)

Serpent: The destiny of destruction... Still awaits... So long as you have
hearts, hate will lurk in the shadows... You who possess the wellspring of
emotion known as the heart... You are the true Mavericks!

(He and the building explode. Anime cutscene ends. Aile wakes up hovering in a
white space with the Biometal still floating around her.)

Aile: His blood flows in my veins... The power within me... Is the power to
control the world?

(A small red Cyber-elf, Giro, appears.)

Giro: Hey, I don't want to hear that kind of talk. You promised to continue the
fight where I left off.

(The Cyber-elf projects a hologram of Giro.)

Giro: Don't tell me you forgot your promise already. You did mean it, right?

Aile: Giro!? But, the blood that flows in me...

Giro: Is just blood. Are you going to let some man you don't even know decide
your destiny for you? Destiny is not something that is given to us by others.
Destiny comes from the concept of "destine," or directing something towards a
given end. Be the one doing the directing. Only you can decide your destiny.

Aile: Only I can decide my destiny...

Giro: Yes. Forget the past. It means nothing. The power you contain within is
the key to creating your future.

Aile: Serpent said that my power is a result of many sacrifices... But those
sacrifices didn't just give me power. The first commander who first made the
Biometal... You, who protected me for all those years. The Guardians... All of
your sacrifices have given me something beyond just power. They gave me the will
to protect the world. And I will protect it!

Giro: Then it looks like you have decided to direct your own destiny. Take this
world into the tomorrow you desire. That's my last job request for you,
transporter.

(Giro disappears. The Biometal place Aile on the highway in Area D.)

Model X: Aile, I have faith in you and your courage. I believe that the tomorrow
you create will be a bright one.

Model Z: Face your destiny and carve out a new future for yourself. That's the
struggle that you and every living thing on the planet must cope with.

(The Biometal join her again.)

Prairie: Aile!

(Aile turns around to see Prairie and all the Guardians waiting. Prairie and
Aile run towards each other.)

Aile: Facing our destinies and carving out the future... That's our struggle.
Everyone has fought to give me something precious. I have a power, and with that
power comes responsibility. I will fight! I will fight for what matters!

(The credits roll as Aile runs on the highway.)

Chapter 1 - Deliver the Biometal
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Giro: Hello! Thank you for calling Giro Express Transporters! We can take
anything, anywhere!

????: Giro? Is that you?

Giro: Ah, the Guardian... or should I say client.

????: Did you receive the package from the archaeological recon unit?

Giro: Yes, I got it.

????: My unit is heading for the agreed upon rendezvous point. It's a little
sooner than expected, but let's meet up there.

Giro: Alright.

(He looks at Vent, who is standing by a cliff looking over a building.)

Giro: Hey Vent! You ready to move out?

(He walks over to Vent, who hasn't moved.)

Giro: Vent! Did you hear me!?

Vent: ...

Giro: You can see the Slither Inc. building from here. This country sure has
grown and prospered thanks to them.

Vent: Bigger's not always better. If their security force had come sooner ten
years ago... My mom might still be alive.

Giro: I'm sorry that you lost your mom in the Maverick raids. I understand how
you feel, but don't let on about your feelings in town. We were experiencing an
energy crisis and suffering from never-ending Maverick raids. But that company
stepped up and fixed all of those problems. As far as the people are concerned,
the president of the company, Serpent, is a genuine hero. Anyway, we better get
going. Our client is already on their way to the rendezvous point.

(They walk back to their bikes.)

Vent: Hey Boss, just who are those Guardians that we took the job request from?
They haven't even told us what's in the package they want delivered so badly.

Giro: The Guardians are a defense force that banded together to fight the
Mavericks. Right now, they're moving from place to place investigating the cause
of Maverick outbreaks. As for the package, try not to ask too many questions.
I'm sure it's very important and very dangerous. It's probably better we don't
know.

(Buster shots hit Giro's bike. Giro and Vent crouch next to their bikes.)

Vent: W-what's going on!?

Giro: Those are Mavericks! How did they get here!?

(The Mavericks attack Giro's bike.)

Giro: Ah! They must be after the package!

(The Mavericks attack Vent's bike. It explodes, flinging Vent and the package
over the cliff.)

Vent: Aaaah!

Giro: Vent!

(Vent wakes up in a grassy area.)

Vent: Ow...

(He stands up.)

Vent: Ugh, that was a bad fall.

Giro: Vent! You okay!? The package! Do you see it!? It should've fallen near
you.

(Vent notices a glowing piece of blue and white metal to his right.)

Vent: That must be it...

Giro: Listen! Grab the package. Then take it to the rendezvous point and give it
to the Guardians! I'll join you later once I take care of business up here!
Protect that package at all costs!

(He runs over to it. Three people, Prairie, Bar, and Maquereau, notice him.)

Bar: Who are you!? What are you doing here!?

Vent: W-wait! I'm just here to deliver a package.

(Prairie walks over.)

Prairie: Lower your weapons.

(They do so.)

Prairie: Are you a transporter?

Vent: Yeah I am... Are you Guardians?

Prairie: Yes. We heard an explosion and came to investigate.

(The ground shakes. A snake-type mechaniloid appears from the ground.)

Maquereau: W-what's that!?

Vent: That must be the leader of this group of Mavericks.

(The two Guardians fire at it.)

Bar: Prairie! It's too dangerous! Take the Biometal and get out of here!

(The Mechaniloid knocks the two Guardians down.)

Maquereau: Aaagh!

(Prairie runs over and kneels by them.)

Prairie: Nooo!

Maquereau: J-just take it... and... go!

(Vent runs over to them.)

Vent: Hey! Please get up! We need to move! They're after the package! Just leave
it! If we take it with us, they'll hunt us down!

Prairie: But I can't let the Biometal fall into the wrong hands!

Vent: Whatever it is, it can't be worth throwing your life away!

Prairie: But... Sis... She left that for us. It's too valuable to just give it
up now!

(The snake Mechaniloid appears again. Vent dashes between it and Prairie.)

Vent: You've got to be kidding! What now? I can't handle this alone.

(The Biometal, Model X, floats above Vent.)

Model X: But we can together. I'll lend you a hand.

(Anime cutscene as Model X and Vent glow.)

Vent: Aaaaaagh!

Model X: Biolink Established! M.E.G.A. System Online!

(Blue armor appears on Vent. Vent fires a shot at the Mechaniloid, which reels
back. Panting, he stares in astonishment. Anime cutscene ends.)

Vent: *panting* The power of the Biometal is amazing!

Model X: Don't be afraid. I'm Biometal Model X.

Vent: Model... X? I can hear you in my head. How are you doing this?

Model X: We have to move away from here or that girl will get caught in the
middle. With our combined strength, we can fight them off!

Vent: ...

(The Mechaniloid flees. Prairie stands up as one of the other Guardians wakes.)

Prairie: He transformed!? Is he one of the chosen ones?

Vent: Hey, you! I need to deliver this to the rendezvous point, right? You just
wait here!

(He starts to run off.)

Prairie: W-wait!

(Vent stops and turns around.)

Prairie: I have a name! Prairie. The name's Prairie.

Vent: Sorry. My name's Vent and I'm your transporter! Stay there. I'll get help!

Prairie: Okay... Be careful Vent!

(Vent travels through the area, defeating several Mechaniloids. Finally, he
defeats the snake Mechaniloid from earlier.)

Vent: We did it... You said your name was Model X. Why did you help me?

Model X: Do I need a reason to help people? You seemed determined to help that
girl even though you've never met her before. I just lend you a helping hand,
you're the brave one.

Vent: Brave? Me? Not hardly. I just know if I didn't at least try, I'd always
regret it.

Model X: ...

Vent: The rendezvous point is up ahead.

(Vent enters a Transerver Room with four Guardians, including both Marue and
Fleuve. They notice him.)

Vent: I'm the transporter. I have your package. Some of your comrades need your
help.

Marue: No way! Come on! Prairie and the others need us!

(He and two other Guardians leave, leaving only Fleuve.)

Vent: Everyone seems awfully worried about that Prairie girl...

Fleuve: Amazing... It looks like you've managed to link up with the Biometal.
Anyway, I'm glad it made it to us safe and sound.

Vent: Hold on. There was a man traveling with me. You haven't seen him have you?

Fleuve: No. You're the only one that I've seen so far.

(Marue calls.)

Marue: This is the rescue squad, we've found the others! We'll treat the wounded
and then head on back to HQ.

Fleuve: Hold on. You haven't spotted another transporter out there, have you?
Apparently a transporter has gone missing in the area.

Marue: Hey! There's some serious smoke rising from the next area. It's totally
like someone has fallen under attack!

Vent: No... Boss! I'm going to need to borrow this Biometal a little longer. I
have to save him!

Fleuve: What!? You would put the Biometal at risk again!?

Vent: My boss is in danger. I don't have time to argue!

Fleuve: B-but!

Prairie: Wait! Fleuve! Let him go!

Fleuve: Prairie!?

Fleuve: Okay, we'll provide backup then. You may already know this, but these
devices known as transervers are scattered throughout the country. With these
devices you can save your data and check mission requests. Let's start with
saving data.

(Vent saves/doesn't save.)

Fleuve: I've just received orders from HQ. You currently have two mission
requests. One mission is to find your fellow transporter. The other mission is
to complete a trial in order to get permission to enter Guardian HQ. Complete
the two missions and return the Biometal to HQ. At HQ, we'll sign off on the
transporter request and your work will be done. You can decide which mission to
start first at the transerver.

Vent: I see... I just have to complete those two missions then. Hold on Boss,
I'm coming!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 2 - Locate Giro
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Vent chooses the mission "Locate Giro." He travels to Area B and notices some
wreckage.)

Vent: There are signs of a struggle here. Following the trail should lead to my
boss.

Prairie: Vent? Come in Vent. About the Mavericks that attacked us, something
with the whole thing is bothering me. There might be a clue in the ruins about
what's causing the Maverick outbreaks. Check them out and see if you can find
something.

(Vent travels through the area until he picks up a Computer Chip.)

Vent: Is this a computer chip?

Prairie: It must be a part that fell off one of the Mavericks. If you bring it
back to HQ, we can analyze it. It might give us the lead we need. If you find
anything else, bring that back too.

(Vent travels through the area, picking up more Computer Chips, until he finds a
ship Mechaniloid. After attacking the Mechaniloid until it is nearly dead, an
odd red armored figure with a black visor and blond hair destroys the ship with
a saber.)

Vent: Is this the power of Biometal?

????: It looks like you came in contact with the Biometal too.

(He transforms into Giro, and turns to Vent.)

Vent: Boss!

Giro: When the Mavericks had me cornered, the Biometal suddenly started to
shine. The next moment, I was fighting them off in that form. I knew we were
hauling something important. But I had no idea of the power that was hidden in
that package.

Vent: Huh? How do you know about the Biometal?

Giro: Ah... Well... I heard about it when I got the request. They told me to
keep it quiet because it would be too risky to let anyone know what was inside.

Vent: Oh... I see.

Giro: At least we know the two Biometal fragments are safe now. I'm going to use
the transerver to go back to Guardian HQ. I'll be waiting. Don't take too long.

(Giro walks away.)

Prairie: It sounds like you managed to meet up with Giro. That's a relief. Oh,
be sure to go to the transerver in the back room and select Mission Report. Then
send confirmation to HQ that the mission has been completed.

(Vent reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 3 - Pass the Test
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Vent chooses the mission "Pass the Test" and heads to Area C.)

Prairie: Hold on. It looks like Slither Inc's security force is starting to
patrol the area.

Vent: Patrols? They've never done that before.

Prairie: Slither Inc. must have already heard about the Maverick attack. If you
stay transformed, they might think you're in league with the Mavericks and
attack you on sight. I'm sure the people around town will also find it hard to
approach you if you look like that. In any case, it's too dangerous to walk
around town transformed. Be careful.

(Vent encounters a Guardian named Dorado.)

Dorado: You're going to undertake the trial for permission to enter HQ right?
There are four Guardians hidden like me throughout town. If you can find all of
us, you pass the test. Let the trial begin! Good luck!

(Vent finds a Guardian named Oelliet.)

Oelliet: Hoho! I shoulda known I'd get spotted in this hiding place. You aren't
gonna catch my comrades so easily though. They're in places that require more
than just strolling on in. Press the +Control Pad diagonally down to crouch
while walking. Look around different places, you never know what you might find.
I'm heading back to HQ. Good luck with the rest of the trial!

(She teleports away. Vent then finds a Guardian named Carrelet.)

Carrelet: Oh, looks like you found me! You should be careful of the security
patrols. As long as they're giving you the green light, you're safe from attack.
But if you're caught with a weapon they will open fire, no questions asked!
Anyway, I'm heading back to HQ. Good luck with the trial!

(He teleports away. Vent finds a Guardian named Congre.)

Congre: Yikes! Oh! You finally found me. I was afraid of running into the
security force and getting hurt. That's why I've been hiding here. *phew* I
thought they would find me for sure. Now I can finally head back to HQ.

(He teleports away. Vent finds the last Guardian, Thon.)

Thon: Grahaha! Great job findin' me boy! I wish we had more of your kind in the
Guardians. I know ya have work to do, bein' a transporter an' all. So I'll be
headin' back. See ya later boy!

Prairie: It looks like you found them all. Head to Area C-2 and get the
certification for passing the test. That will conclude your trial.

(Vent heads to Area C-2 and finds Dorado outside the Data Room.)

Dorado: You passed the test. Here, take this.

(He hands Vent a Stuffed Animal.)

Vent: A stuffed animal? This is my certification!?

Dorado: You better take care of that. It's one of Prairie's most prized
possessions. Anyway, that concludes your trial. There's a transerver in the room
behind me. Don't forget to file a mission report!

(Vent reports the mission.)

Fleuve: Mission accomplished. Well done. You have permission to travel to HQ.
Use the transerver to get here.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 4 - Guardian HQ
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Vent travels to the Transerver Room in Guardian HQ. Giro, Prairie, and another
Guardian are there.)

Aile: This is the Guardian HQ? I have to admit I wasn't expecting an airship.

Prairie: The Guardians have to explore the world, so we need a convenient method
of staying mobile.

(She walks over to Vent.)

Prairie: I'm glad you both are okay.

Vent: Oh Prairie, I found this computer chip while I was out there. Here, take
it.

(He hands the Computer Chip over.)

Vent: As for the certification that I passed the trial. This is it... right?

(He hands over the Stuffed Animal.)

Prairie: Yes, that was a gift from Sis. It holds a lot of memories for me. Thank
you for bringing it back.

Giro: Vent! You can't just call her by her first name! Got it? Hmph, kids...

Prairie: Don't worry about it Giro. I want to apologize for the grave danger I
put you both in. Let's meet at the command center and I will explain everything
there. It's out of this room and to the left.

Giro: *sigh*

Vent: ...

(Prairie, Giro, and the Guardian leave, with Vent following afterwords. They
enter the Command Center, where Prairie is sitting at the main hub.)

Prairie: Let me take this opportunity to welcome you to Guardian Headquarters.
And...

(She stands up.)

Prairie: I am Prairie, the commander of the Guardians.

Vent: The commander of all the Guardians!? Th-then that means...

Giro: She's a very important client. Which is exactly why I want you to call her
by her proper title.

Vent: How did a little girl like Prairie become the leader of the Guardians!?

Prairie: The sentient machines known as Mavericks continue to attack people.
This terrible situation should not even exist. Hundreds of years ago, man and
machine put aside their differences and agreed to a truce. The Guardians have
continued to investigate the root cause behind the current Maverick outbreaks.
One day we found a research lab belonging to a certain scientist.

Vent: A "certain scientist?"

(Prairie bows her head.)

Prairie: The first commander of the Guardians... The one who disappeared. She
was my Sis.

Vent: So you took over when she was gone...

Giro: And we were hauling the Biometal that you found at the research lab.

Prairie: A long time ago, the world humans and machines was saved by a group of
legends. Biometal are fragments containing the consciousness of those legendary
heroes. There might be some hint regarding the Maverick outbreaks in the data
stored at the lab. Fleuve's personal laboratory is right next to the transerver
room. Take the Biometal data there for analysis. I'll be here analyzing that
computer chip that you brought back.

(Giro and Vent go to Fleuve's lab.)

Fleuve: Oh, good, good. I have been waiting for you! Now, where is this fragment
of Biometal?

(Vent hands Model X over to Fleuve. Fleuve begins analyzing it on the computer.)

Fleuve: Ah, excellent... Data transfer complete. Much appreciated! You can take
the Biometal back now.

(He gives Model X back to Vent.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 5 - Model ZX
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(An alarm begins to ring.)

Operator: Mavericks detected in Area D! Mission objectives will be relayed on
arrival. Move out and await further orders. I repeat! Mavericks detected in Area
D! Mission objectives will be relayed on arrival. Move out and await further
orders.

Giro: Area D... That's right next to the Slither Inc. head office!

Fleuve: It's too dangerous for you to go back to town now. We must hurry to the
command center.

(They head to the Command Center.)

Prairie: It looks like our enemy is on the move.

Giro: "Enemy?" So they're not just random Maverick outbreaks?

Prairie: After I did a little snooping on the chip you brought back, I found
that there is a program controlling the Mavericks. There is someone behind the
Maverick attacks, but they're just making them seem like random raids. They must
be trying to steal the Biometal you were carrying.

Vent: Serpent's security force... Where are they? Why haven't they arrived yet!?

Prairie: It takes time for them to be recalled to the head office from their
patrol routes in the city. Guardian ground forces are moving to intercept the
Mavericks in Area D.

Maquereau: Ground forces reporting! The Mavericks are heading for the
residential district. Troops are exchanging fire on the highway in Area D.

Vent: No!

(He starts to run out the door.)

Fleuve: Vent!? Where are you going!?

(Vent stops and turns around.)

Vent: I can help them if I use the Biometal!

(Giro walks towards him.)

Giro: Think Vent! That Biometal is exactly what they want! You'll play straight
into their hands if you go out there to fight!

Vent: I lost my mom to a Maverick raid... If the security force had reached us
in time, she would still be alive today. They had the power to prevent that
horrible attack. But they did nothing... I refuse to be like them!

(He runs out the door.)

Prairie: Vent!

(Giro runs a hand through his hair.)

Giro: Why won't he ever listen!?

(He chases Vent. Vent, merged with Model X, runs on the highway. Giro, merged
with Model Z, dashes towards him.)

Giro: Hold on Vent!

(He stops.)

Vent: Boss, I...

Giro: I'm not going to try and stop you. But I'm not going to let you play the
hero alone. Come on Vent, let's go!

Vent: Right!

(Giro dashes off ahead. Vent follows, eventually finding a wounded Maquereau.)

Maquereau: Another transporter!? You came too? The other one rescued me and
continued on alone. You have to save him!

(Vent continues on. Eventually, he finds Giro, still megamerged, lying on the
ground with a large man and two Reploids standing above him.)

Vent: Boss!?

????: Ah, you've come. Model X, the blue Mega Man. It's time to see the legend
in action.

(The man starts to do something to Giro.)

Giro: Ugh... Stay... away... It's a trap...

(Giro starts glowing.)

Giro: Aaargh!

(The three teleport away. Giro stands up, looking insane.)

Vent: Boss! What happened!?

Giro: Vent! Sh-shoot me...

(Giro attacks Vent, who has no choice but to defeat him. Soon, he is aiming his
Buster at him, but his arm is wavering.)

Vent: Stop it! Come on Boss, stay with me!

Giro: Grr... aaagh!

(A thunderbolt strikes Giro, who crumples to the ground.)

Vent: Boss!!!

(He runs towards him.)

????: Model X, the blue Mega Man... Model Z, the red Mega Man... Such
disappointments. The Biometal the Guardians found might as well have been tin
scrapings.

(The three appear again.)

Vent: Who are you!?

Serpent: The name is Serpent. I rule all that lies before me. I am the Model W
Mega Man!

Vent: Serpent!? You're the president of Slither Inc.!

Serpent: I see my reputation precedes me. You'd do well to remember me, blue
Mega Man!

(Vent aims his Buster at him.)

Vent: You're the one behind the Mavericks and what happened to Boss!

???? (female): You're shaking... Is it anger... Or fear?

???? (male): Hmph, at least the red one was more of a challenge than this one.

Vent: I'll show you what kind of man I am!

(He charges his Buster.)

Serpent: Prometheus.

Prometheus: Ah, poor blue Mega Man. What you mistake for courage is nothing more
than mere recklessness.

Vent: Quiet!

(He shoots, but Prometheus reflects it back at him.)

Vent: No!

Serpent: Chosen ones like us, who can control the Biometal's M.E.G.A. system and
transform. We are called Mega Men. The chosen few are the shepherds for guiding
the flock in a new world. But you've proven with your pathetic abilities that
not all Mega Men are fit to rule.

(Serpent raises a hand. Lightning strikes Vent, who collapses and demerges with
Model X.)

Vent: Aaagh!

Serpent: Pull the password data out of them.

Pandora: Understood...

(She sends over some machines and begins to pull the data out.)

Prometheus: That was far too easy. What should we do with them?

Serpent: Leave them to the Mavericks and carry on as you were. A battle between
the evil Mavericks and the good Slither Inc. security force. Classic. The people
of this town will go on with their lives as usual. We need the facade of peace
to continue on just a little bit longer. Eventually they will all become a
glorious sacrifice for Model W.

Vent: W-what!?

(Pandora revceives her machines back.)

Pandora: Password data retrieval complete...

Serpent: Gyahaha! Now we have all of the passwords. Let's go. It's time to
proceed with Project Haven.

(Serpent and Pandora teleport away.)

Prometheus: It seems the heroic legends of Model X and Z are nothing more than
that, legends.

(He teleports away.)

Vent: Argh... My body... won't move...

Giro: Never... give up... You still have something... you must protect.

Vent: Boss! You're awake!

Giro: Model Z, listen... Don't worry... about me...

Model Z: Do you know what you're asking? Your body is already beyond recovery.
If you transform back, you will not survive the wounds...

Giro: Please... lend your strength... to Vent...

Model Z: Alright, I will...

Giro: Aile... be strong...

(Giro demerges with Model Z and dies, disappearing. A Cyber-Elf floats away.)

Vent: Boss! Boss!!! Not again... First my mom... Now Boss... I can't protect
anyone...

Model X: Vent. This is your last chance. If you combine the power from the two
Biometal fragments, you might be able to transform again. I can't be certain
whether or not you'll be able to bear the strain when the two fragments are
combined.

(A group of Mavericks surround him and the Biometal.)

Model Z: It's your decision. You alone must make it. Do you have the will to
fight? Do you have what it takes to continue where that brave man left off?

(Anime cutscene. Vent reaches out for the Biometal.)

Vent: Model X... Model Z... Power... I need your power. I need to protect the
people, all of them! Give me the strength I need to fight for those I care
about!

(Vent grabs both Biometal and blasts the Mavericks away by transforming into
Model ZX. Anime cutscene ends.)

Model X: Vent, our strength...

Model Z: Is yours! And Giro's sprit is also with you!

Vent: Let's do this!

(He runs to the right, only to see Serpent's ship start to rise.)

Vent: That's a Slither Inc. airship!

(He chases it, but it flies away.)

Vent: No... This isn't good!

Prairie: Aile... The battle between the Mavericks and the security force has
begun. You can't stay there. It's too dangerous. Return to HQ immediately.

Vent: Prairie... let me fight. I must... Protect them... Every last one of them.

(He heads over to Guardian HQ, still merged with Model ZX.)

Prairie: Vent...

Vent: I'm fine. I can't sit on the sidelines wiping my tears away while the
world falls to pieces. Serpent said he would sacrifice the country to power
Model W. I have to keep fighting. We must stop Serpent. Boss would want it that
way. That's why he gave me Model Z.

Prairie: Alright... We've analyzed the data and foud out a few things. Model W
has the power to corrupt machines and humans alike. That's what has been causing
the Maverick outbreaks. But Serpent only has the Model W Biometal fragment now.

Vent: How could he control Boss and the Mavericks with just one piece?

Prairie: The Model W Core is lying dormant somewhere waiting to be awoken. I'm
not sure what that Project Haven Serpent mentioned is... But I think he's going
to try and awaken Model W. He'll use it to take over the world.

Vent: Where's the Model W Core now?

Prairie: I'm not sure... Some of the data was corrupt and we couldn't complete
the analysis. What I do know is that the six passwords encoded into the Biometal
fragments are the keys. Combined they will unlock the seal that contains the
core. I managed to get Model X and Model Z first...

Vent: But Slither Inc. found the other four. It looks like we don't have much
choice. We have to fight and take them by force!

Prairie: I'm going to simulate the data and narrow down the Biometal locations
using the Maverick signatures. Once I get a mission plan together, I'll add that
information to the transerver. Vent, be careful out there!

(She sits back down. Vent heads over to the transerver.)

Operator: Vent! I sent a yellow card key to the server. You'll be able to open
yellow doors with it.

(Vent receives the Yellow Card Key.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 6 - Search the Plant
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Vent takes the mission "Search the Plant." He heads over to Area E.)

Prairie: The plant... It's still active and producing energy. According to the
database, it has been offline ever since the Maverick raid. There's something
fishy going on. Be careful Aile.

(Vent travels through the area until he finds a room full of Cyber-Elves.)

Vent: What's this? There are tiny balls of light circling around the facility.

Prairie: This signature... Cyber-elves!?

Vent: Cyber-elves? What are those?

Prairie: Sentient programs created with pure energy and made in the image of
elves. I don't understand why there are so many of them here. That power
plant... It must be using the Cyber-elves to generate power!

Vent: So that's the secret behind this place.

Prairie: Unbelievable! Cyber-elves are all sentient beings like the rest of us!
Vent, please, you must shut down that power plant!

(Vent continues until he encounters a winged Reploid on a junked machine. It
hovers down in front of him.)

Hivolt: Well, well. It looks like you've found the skeleton in our closet.
That's unfortunately. Now I can't let you leave in one piece.

Vent: You're one of the Mavericks that Serpent is controlling!

Hivolt: You've done your research. It looks like I can skip the introduction.
However, make no mistake, I'm not just a simple puppet like those Mavericks. I'm
an artificial Mega Man created to draw out the power of the Biometal. I'm the
Model H Pseudoroid, Hivolt. Have no fear. It'll all be over soon. You'll just
feel a little jolt before you sleep forever!

(Hivolt and Vent fight. Vent defeats Hivolt.)

Hivolt: Hah... The energy we've produced here is already well on its way to Lord
Serpent. All that's left is for him to hack into the Model W Core. Poor
misguided fool. Your end draws near as a new age is beginning!

(He explodes, leaving Model H floating.)

Model H: I am the Biometal of the Wind, Model H. Thank you for saving me, young
hero.

Vent: Lend me your strength Model H. I have to find the passwords and destroy
the Model W Core before it's too late!

Model H: Do you think that will end this?

Vent: What do you mean?

Model H: All of this was started by a single man. Even if you destroy the Model
W Core and stop Serpent... What's to stop another madman from rising up and
taking his place?

Vent: I... don't know... But what I do know is that Serpent is about to destroy
the world! I'm the only one that can stop it now. I can't give up!

Model H: Hmph. Those humans we fought so hard to protect hundreds of years ago
have been lulled into a false sense of security by the empty promise of peace.
But I still believe our fighting had meaning. So, young hero, yes I will lend
you my strength. Serpent has separated my data into two halves. There is another
Pseudoroid with the other part. If you can defeat it, I will be able to give you
my password.

(Model H joins Vent. Vent heads over to a transerver and reports the mission.
He receives a green card key.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 7 - Find the Survivors
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Vent takes the mission "Find the Survivors." He heads over to Area F.)

Prairie: The distress call definitely came from this area. The signal is too
weak to pinpoint the exact location.

Vent: I can't get a lock on it either. I'll proceed and let you know if I find
anything.

(Vent continues until he detects a signal.)

????: ...

Vent: Hey! Is anyone here! I came to help! Tell me where you are!

????: ...

Vent: Strange. There's no reply.

Prairie: The source of the signal is definitely coming from near your position.
The device emitting the signal should be close. Try to locate it.

(Vent finds a room with a computer.)

Vent: Prairie, I found the terminal that has been sending out the signal. But
there's no one around.

Prairie: What? I wonder what could have happened there?

(Suddenly, the computer comes to life.)

Vent: What's this? There's a data disk still in the terminal.

Computer: I don't have much longer. I pray that this data doesn't fall into the
wrong hands.

(It shows an image of several scientists examining Model W.)

Computer: The recon unit has unearthed a strange metal in this area. It seems...
conscious. It began to speak to us in our minds. The commander called it
"Biometal Model W." We continued to research the Biometal under her orders.
However, everyone was complaining of unexplained headaches and a strange
numbness... Upon hearing this, she removed us from the site and continued the
research on her own. Despite these precautions, our unit was annihilated. One of
our own had suddenly gone mad...

(The computer dies.)

Vent: That's the end of the data.

Prairie: Sis... This is a report from the first commander's recon unit! The
distress call must have been activated to make sure someone would find this
data. But the recon unit is... gone.

Vent: Stay with me Prairie. I need to know where the Biometal is.

Prairie: Vent?

Vent: Slither Inc. might have the rest of the data. Don't give up on your sister
just yet.

Prairie: You're right. I'm sorry Vent. I'm reading the Biometal signature just
beyond the locked door. We'll hack the lock from Guardian HQ.

Vent: Looks like we're back in business!

(Vent continues until he encounters Lurerre.)

Lurerre: Oh my! What's that disk you've got there? Agh! I thought I told you
Mavericks to leave anything of importance with me! Hmph! Worthless fool!

Vent: I knew it. You're after this disk! Where's the rest of it?

Lurerre: Oh my my... You must be one of those horrid interlopers trying to stop
poor Lord Serpent's plan. Well hmph! I'm not telling you anything, so how do you
like that!? I am the lovely Pseudoroid Model L, Lurerre. I'm going to tear you
apart piece by piece! Prepare for the end little man!

(The two fight. Vent defeats Lurerre.)

Lurerre: Oh my... Oh my... Goodbye cruel world. How could this be! Done in by a
creepy little runt!

(She explodes, leaving Model L behind.)

Model L: I am the Biometal of the Ice, Model L. Thank you for freeing me from
that awful body. You're looking for the rest of the data disk right? I'm sorry,
but it has already been taken away somewhere. A hundred years have passed since
the war, but it looks like some things will never change.

Vent: A man named Serpent is attempting to reawaken Model W. To stop him, I need
your help and the password.

Model L: Hmm... Model Z, I heard the story about Serpent. I know you are linked
with a host body, but I heard he beat you in combat.

Model Z: Yes... My failure led to the death of a good man named Giro.

Model L: I see... Alright, I'll join you. It should be an interesting challenge
to take on the one who bested the great Model Z. I'll give you my password, but
the data is split into two halves. The other Pseudoroid with my power has the
remaining half. I won't be able to give you the complete password until you
defeat him.

(Model L joins Vent. Vent heads over to a transerver, reports the mission, turns
in the Data Disk 1, and receives a Blue Card Key.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 8 - Fight the Mavericks
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Vent accepts the mission called "Fight the Mavericks." He transports over to
Area G. He travels until she finds Maquereau.)

Maquereau: Oww... The other Guardians went further on to try and save more
people. They were surrounded by Mavericks and haven't come back. Use this old
portable transerver. Please, you have to save everyone!

(Vent heads into the facility. He finds another Guardian, Chene, near the
entrance.)

Chene: I came here to try and help people, but I can't get through the flames.
You could use the dash jump to leap over them! Please! Do whatever you can to
help the others!

(She teleports away. Vent finds Allen, a little boy, on the bottom floor.)

Allen: Nooo! I can't find Bosch! Someone! Please save him!

(He teleports away. Vent finds a Guardian, Platane, on the 5th floor.)

Platane: Thank you for coming to save us! Just remember to transform back to
normal before talking to people. Otherwise they'll be too afraid to accept your
help. Of course us Guardians know you and won't be afraid.

(She teleports away. Vent finds Gayark, a Slither Inc. employee, in the 1st
room.)

Gayark: Why me!? How did I end up in this mess? Hey, you there! Would you give
me a hand? I'll make it worth your while! This is nothing compared to the value
of a life. Please take it. It's yours!

(He teleports away, leaving behind some E-Crystals. Vent finds an old man named
Kaspar in the 2nd room's window.)

Kaspar: I was too slow and couldn't escape in time. If you hadn't come along, I
would have become one extra crispy old man. There are a lot of others that need
rescuing.

(He teleports away. Vent finds a Guardian, Banite, in the 3rd room.)

Banite: You there! Are you here to help with the rescue operation? Beyond that
window, one of us went inside to help, but the fire has surrounded them and now
they are trapped. If you stand in front of the window and press up on the
+Control Pad, you can enter inside.

(He teleports away. Vent enters the window. He finds another Guardian, Sole.)

Sole: We came to help too, but we got surrounded by the flames. There are others
who need your help in the area. Please, you have to help them! Oh! By the way,
make sure you aren't transformed when you talk to the townspeople.

(He teleports away. Vent finds a girl, Sonya, in the 4th room.)

Sonya: Thank you for saving me. There are other people trapped here too. You can
reach the next building over from the top floor... The sprinkler system controls
are over there and locked. Take this key and you should be able to access them.

(She unlocks the 8th room and teleports away. Vent looks in the window of the
5th room and finds Thalia.)

Thalia: It's so hot and scary... Where are mommy and daddy? I want to see mommy
and daddy! I wanna go home!

(She teleports away. Vent finds an injured girl, Silvia, in the 5th room.)

Silvia: I sprained my ankle and fell behind. I was worried I wouldn't make it
out of here alive since I couldn't move. I'm so lucky you came along when you
did! Please, take this.

(She teleports away, leaving an energy capsule. Vent finds a boy, Malisan, in
the window of the 6th room.)

Malisan: Did you come to help us? Thank you... I think someone is controlling
the Mavericks. This fire is all his fault! He should be at the top of this
building, getting ready to head to the next one over. You've got to teach him
that if you play with fire, you get burned!

(He teleports away. Vent finds a man, Luke, on the 7th floor.)

Luke: *cough cough* Who are you? Did you come to save us? As you can see, this
room is covered in smoke. Some of the people escaped through the room windows.
They might still be waiting for help on the other side.

(He teleports away. Vent continues searching through the facility until he
encounters Fistleo.)

Fistleo: I came all this way expecting to find a great warrior, but you are just
a boy. All this associating with Mavericks and kidnapping people is interfering
with my training.

Vent: Kidnapping? What have you done with everyone!?

Fistleo: I have no need to tell you. Serpent promised to take me beyond the
limits of my training give me the power of a god if I helped him. It sounded
like an excellent proposition. I will do whatever it takes to get power.

Vent: That's not true power! You can't get it through evil.

Fistleo: You might turn out to be a stubborn opponent after all. My Biometal is
burning to get a piece of you. The name is Fistleo, I am the Model F Pseudoroid.
You are about to find out just how true my power really is!

(The two battle. Vent defeats Fistleo.)

Fistleo: How could this happen!? I was transformed into a Pseudoroid... I was
supposed to have the power of a god... But I was beaten by a little boy!

(He explodes, leaving behind Model F.)

Model F: Yahoo! Thanks for saving me! I am the Biometal of the Flame, Model F!
Let's get a move on! Who are we gonna take down next?

Vent: H-hold on a second. I haven't even told you what's going on.

Model F: I know, I know, Serpent is up to something sneaky with that Model W.
It's all so complicated. I don't really know what's going on. I just know that
he used my power to do his dirty work. If you're out for payback, I'm your
model! Got a problem with that?

Vent: N-no...

Model F: Oh, the password. Sorry, but I can't give the whole thing to you yet.
Serpent split my power down the middle and the other part is with another
Pseudoroid. If you can take that one down, I can give you the password.

(Model F joins Vent. Vent reports the mission and receives the Red Card Key.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 9 - Secure the Biometal
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Vent accepts the mission called "Secure the Biometal." He transports over to
Area H.)

Prairie: Vent! Mavericks are concentrating in that area! It looks like they're
after the Biometal too, so be careful!

Vent: ...

Prairie: Vent? Did you hear me? What's wrong?

Vent: O-oh, I'm on my way! I never thought I'd be back here again...

(Vent eventually encounters a giant Mettool and destroys it.)

Vent: Argh! That wasn't the one with the Biometal.

Prairie: Vent, what's going on? You've been acting strange ever since this
mission started.

Vent: Prarie! Where's that Biometal signature!?

Prairie: Vent, get ahold of yourself! What's wrong with you?

Vent: I've been here before... ten years ago. My mom brought me here.

Prairie: Ten years ago... That was when the Mavericks attacked! So...

Vent: Yeah... I can't stop thinking about it since I got here. Maybe history
will repeat itself and I'll be helpless to do anything again.

Prairie: Vent... remember that you're not alone. Don't try to carry the weight
of the world on your shoulders. You've got me and the other Guardians... And
you've got Giro watching over you too. We'll save this country together.

Vent: Prairie... Thank you. Recommencing mission!

(He continues until he sees Purprill.)

Purprill: Ook! Ook! So a Maverick has come to take me back eh? I was having such
a good time playing with my new powers in this place filled with such fond
memories.

Vent: Memories?

Purprill: Ten years ago, I was just another Maverick going wild in this place
when Lord Serpent took notice of my talent. Now I'm one of his executive
officers! Ook! Ook! It's incredible!

Vent: Your little story about ten years ago eased my conscience. Now I'm not
going to feel bad about taking you out!

Purprill: Ook? You're actually going to fight me? This should be a blast! I'll
show you just how powerful the Pseudoroid Purprill really is!

(The two fight. Vent defeats Purprill.)

Purprill: N-nooo! I'm to powerful to be beaten! I'm an... officer... I should
be... unstoppable... Ooook!!!

(He explodes, leaving Model P behind.)

Model P: Drowning in his own power... What an appropriate end for a low-life
that wanted it so badly. I am the Biometal of the Shadows, Model P. You fought
bravely. Model X, since you are lending your power to this one, am I to assume
the time has come?

Model X: It has. Someone is trying to revive Model W. Will you help us stop him?

Model P: It is our destiny across the ages to protect the world of Man. Let us
once again become humanity's blade for striking down evil. I apologize that I
cannot hand over the password. Serpent split my data up into two parts. The
other part is contained in a different Pseudoroid. As long as that Psuedoroid is
operational, you will never reach Model W.

Vent: So that means there's another enemy out there with the power of Model P.

(Model P joins Vent. Vent reports the mission and gets the Purple Card Key.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 10 - Attack on Guardian HQ
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Prairie calls Vent after he finishes her 4th mission report.)

Prairie: Vent! Can you hear me!? Come in! HQ radar has spotted multiple Slither
Inc. airships! Their fleet is flying full speed straight at us! Please get back
here! We need your help!

(Vent transports back to Guardian HQ and goes to the Command Center.)

Vent: Prairie, what's the status on the enemy fleet!?

Prairie: Not good! They're right on top of us! This ship wasn't designed for
heavy battle. If the enemy boards us, we're done for!

(The alarm rings. The ship shakes.)

Operator: Slither Inc.'s fleet has fired an opening volley! Returning fire!

Prairie: All hands man the port and starboard machine guns! Don't let them get
any closer!

(The ship shakes again.)

Prairie: Vent! You have to get to the deck and do what you can to stop those
boarding parties!

Vent: Leave it to me! No one's going to get hurt on my watch! I'll protect the
Guardians!

(Vent heads out onto the deck and destroys several Mechaniloids. Another robot
deployer lands. Anime cutscene. Numerous Mechaniloids dash out the deployer and
head into the ship, as well as Prometheus and Pandora. Anime cutscene ends.)

Vent: They're the ones from before!

Prairie: Enemy troops have boarded the ship! They're heading for the engine room
down below! You have to get down there and protect the engines! Hurry!

Vent: Hmph! Don't worry, they won't get through me!

(Vent heads towards the engine room. Meanwhile, Prairie, Maquereau, Prometheus,
and Pandora are in the engine room.)

Maquereau: Hey you! Stand away from the reactor!

(He fires, but Pandora blocks with her shield.)

Pandora: Move aside...

(Vent enters the room and stands between the two Guardians and the Reploids.)

Vent: Prairie, are you alright!?

Prairie: Vent!

Pandora: You... The boy from before... Model X... Model Z... together...

Prometheus: Or should we just say Model ZX now? Serpent's orders are to
eliminate the Guardians here and now... Such a waste. It's time for one final
test to see if you will make a worthy sacrifice for the revival of Model W.

Vent: Sacrifice!? Me!?

Pandora: Prometheus... It's not fair...

Prometheus: Don't worry, I'll be sure to leave some fun for you. That is unless
he's too fragile and gets blown to pieces.

(Pandora teleports out.)

Prairie: Vent!

Vent: Get back Prairie! I'll handle him!

(Prairie and Maquereau leave. Vent and Prometheus battle. Vent defeats him.)

Prometheus: Interesting... You're more powerful than I expected. You've combined
the Biometal fragments to draw out more power. Excellent feature. That woman
knew that she was doing when she created that Biometal...

Prairie: Wait!

(Prairie runs back into the room.)

Prairie: "That woman!?" You're talking about Sis!

Prometheus: Oh, you know her? Well then you must not be of this time either...
Haha... What an interesting little connection you two have!

(Prometheus starts to fly upwards. Vent runs towards him.)

Vent: Wait! Get back here!

Prometheus: Hmph. Don't be so quick to bear your claws to me little one. It'll
cost you your life, just like it cost the red Mega Man his.

Vent: Why you-!

Prometheus: Haha... Consider yourself lucky to be alive. Remember this moment
and how I let you live! If you want to press your luck, we'll be waiting!
Hahahahaha!

(He teleports away.)

Operator: Commander Prairie! The enemy fleet is moving away!

Prairie: The enemy has retreated. I want a damage report! And make sure the
wounded get priority.

Operator: Understood.

Prairie: Vent, come back to the command center.

(Vent and Prairie head over to the command center.)

Prairie: There's something we need to talk about.

Vent: Is this about Prometheus saying you were not of this time?

Prairie: Did you know that a long, long time ago humans and machines were at war
with each other?

Vent: I've heard about it, but that was hundreds of years ago. It's just history
now.

Prairie: I'm a machine born of that era. I was designed to look like a person.
I'm a Reploid.

Vent: You're a Reploid build hundreds of years ago!?

Prairie: But Sis... She was not a Reploid. She was human. She was a scientist
who tried to protect us Reploids when no one else would. When the war ended,
Humand and Reploid were both living in harmony, and peace had finally prevailed.
But the sentient machines known as Mavericks continued to threaten mankind. Sis
formed the Guardians and tried to locate the source of the Maverick outbreaks in
order to stop it. But Sis... She... she's gone. And...

Vent: You've been fighting Mavericks for centuries... Fighting for the ones you
love just like me... Well, not quite like me. You've been at it much longer than
me.

Prairie: Vent.

Vent: Boss told me never to give up. That I still had something I must protect.
We must destroy Model W and stop the Maverick outbreaks! For Boss... For mom...
For your sister... For everyone that we hold dear in our hearts!

Prairie: You're right... Thank you, Vent. Let's get this mission underway!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 11 - Save the People
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Vent accepts the mission "Save the People." He heads over to Area I.)

Prairie: The life signs look like they're located in the very back of the area.
Since you defeated the one in charge of the power plant operation, some of the
equipment isn't functioning now. If you could just find a way to get the
electricity flowing...

Vent: Electricity. Alright, I'll figure something out.

(Vent travels through the area until he encounters Hurricaune.)

Hurricaune: Let me guess, you're here to save the poor folks in the next room?
I'm afraid chivalry is dead my boy. They're valuable sacrifices for the
ressurrection of Model W. Cyber-elves exposed to data on fear are the key to
reviving Model W. I am the Model H Pseudoroid, Hurricaune! You're about to
become the next sacrifice. Just make sure to scream for me!

(The two battle. Vent defeats Hurricaune.)

Hurricaune: Hah... Not bad... Do whatever you want with the people in the next
room... It won't matter anyway. Model W's awakening will still come to pass!
Ahahaha!

(Hurricaune explodes, leaving behind the other half of Model H.)

Model H: It looks like you've recovered the password and my power. I am
grateful. However, it will take time to reassemble the password into something
you can use. Please be patient.

(The other half of Model H joins Vent. Vent comes into a room where several
townspeople are being held behind a barrier.)

Prairie: The people are in that room. You have to free them.

(Vent smashes the lock with his weapon. The people come out.)

Leonardo: W-we're saved!!! We were just about to become Cyber-elves! Thank you
for rescuing us!

Vent: "Become" Cyber-elves? What are you talking about?

Leonardo: Those bad guys, they steal our memories and change us into Cyber-
elves. They were also trying to scare us before we changed. I saw them... I saw
the others changing one-by-one into those Cyber-elves.

Prairie: So that's how they were able to create so many of them... They're even
crueler than I had imagined. We'll send the people back to town. Thank you for
saving them, Vent.

(The people teleport away. Vent reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 12 - Recover the Disk
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Vent accepts the mission "Recover the Disk." He heads over to Area J.)

Prairie: The data disk contains the report that Sis was working on while she was
in the recon unit.

Vent: So it contains the rest of what we decoded from the other disk we found at
the distress call source...

Prairie: We found the enemy delivery unit along with a Biometal signature. There
must be something important stored on that disk. The Biometal signature is
further back in the same area. Be careful Vent.

(Vent travels through the area until he encounters Leganchor.)

Leganchor: Hwahaha! So you're the great Mega Man that keeps trying to interfere
with our plans. I suppose it's asking too much to expect someone so young to
understand what we're trying to do. You should respect your elders and listen to
us old folk.

Vent: I don't usually listen to shady types like you that go around and hide the
truth. So don't expect any respect from me.

Leganchor: Hwahaha! Sometimes ignorance is bliss little one! I am the Model L
Pseudoroid, Leganchor. It looks like I'll have to teach you some respect.

(The two battle. Vent defeats Leganchor.)

Leganchor: Why... Why do you fight so hard? Why do you risk your life for those
fools? Youth is wasted... on the young...

(Leganchor explodes, leaving behind the other half of Model L and Data Disk 2.)

Model L: How could anyone give my power to someone like that!? I'm sorry, it'll
take some time to recover the password. I'll make sure it's available before you
have to take on Model W.

(The other half of Model L joins Vent. Vent picks up the Data Disk 2.)

Prairie: Vent, the data disk, is...

Vent: Yeah, the recon unit report is on it.

????: The recon unit was wiped out by the act of one of our own. His name is
Serpent and he was always the one most interested in the Model W fragment. He
erased the research data and vanished with the Biometal. I've never heard of a
Maverick that powerful. Model W must have transformed him into "something else."
We now know that Model W has the power to create an enemy much more terrifying
than the Mavericks. I only hope that our sacrifice bought the commander enough
time to escape. I don't have much longer. I pray that this data doesn't fall
into the wrong hands.

Prairie: Serpent was awfully worried about the data leaking out. He must have
known the reaction the people of this country would have if they knew the truth.
Send the data disk along with your mission report. We can't allow the
information contained on it to get out until we know exactly what it is.

Vent: Alright, I'll send it.

Prairie: Sis... She must have gotten away while the others protected her.

Vent: ...

(Vent sends a mission report and the Data Disk 2.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 13 - Attack the Excavators
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Vent accepts the mission "Attack the Excavators." She heads to Area K.)

Prairie: The dig sites looks like it continues deep underground. Try to find a
way down there.

(Vent heads underground and then encounters Maquereau.)

Maquereau: We were sent here to check out the trap in the area. According to
reports, lava flows through the next area and sweeps intruders away. That lava
will do you in if you come into contact with it.

(Vent meets up wit Flammole.)

Flammole: Hmm? Oh... It's you. You're the one goin' around stealin' the
Biometal. I could feel your presence a mile away. It was drilling straight
through the ground to me. Lord Serpent said there was an even more powerful
Biometal buried deep beneath the surface. But! Nothin' is comin' up! I am the
Model F Pseudoroid, Flammole. I'll take ya down and the Biometal you stole will
be back, safe in our hands!

(The two fight. Vent defeats Flammole.)

Flammole: I see now... You weren't the one I sensed... It musta been... Model W?
Or... Is it somethin' else entirely!? Aaagh!

(He explodes, leaving behind the other half of Model F.)

Model F: Haha! What a waste that a loser like that had my power! Sorry, but
it'll be some time before I can recover that password. Don't worry, I'll get it
for you.

(The other half of Model F joins Vent. Vent reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 14 - Protect the Lab
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Vent accepts the mission "Protect the Lab" and transports over to Area L.)

Prairie: Vent! The enemy has commenced their attack! If we don't hurry, all of
the data in the research lab will be lost! The room with the data should be up
ahead!

(Vent continues through the area until he meets Protectos.)

Protectos: You've come at last... The fooslish Mega Man who has sided with the
Guardians. All of the data that was found here is now in my internal data disk.
I just need to destroy this room with you in it, and all of the loose ends will
be tied up. I am the Model P Pseudoroid, Protectos! I will crush anyone that
stands in our way!

(The two fight. Vent defeats Protectos.)

Protectos: Ugh! No! How could anyone break through my armor! Rrraaagh!

(He explodes, leaving behind the other half of Model P and Data Disk 3.)

Model P: Oh how the mighty have fallen. Strong armor is nothing compared to the
power of will. It will take some time before I am capable of recovering the
password. The password will be ready when you need it.

(The other half of Model P joins Vent.)

Prairie: That data disk was left behind by Sis. It had to be. Please don't
forget to bring it back to HQ.

(Vent picks up the Data Disk 3.)

????: Biometal Report Classification #315000 * Model W * ...discovered...
conscious...metal...Bio...tal Model W. .......................

Vent: It looks like the data was corrupted. I can't read it.

Prairie: We might still have something that can recover the data at HQ. Please
send it to us along with your mission report.

(Vent reports the mission and sends the Data Disk 3.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 15 - The Message
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Prairie contacts Vent once he reported the last mission.)

Prairie: We finally have all six Biometal fragments. We must regroup and
prepare. Head back to HQ.

(Vent heads back to Guardian HQ and goes to the command center. Prairie stands.)

Prairie: Good work. We've successfully recovered the content on the data disk
you brought back from the research lab. It was left behind by Sis after all.

Vent: It looked like a report about the Biometal. What was on it?

Prairie: It describes Model W, Model X, Model Z... Everything about the
Biometal. Including its true nature.

Vent: ...

Prairie: In the war hundreds of years ago, there was a man who tried to conquer
the world. In order to carry out his mad scheme, he created a giant battle
station in space known as Ragnarok. He fused with Ragnarok, but he was
challenged by a hero and defeated. Ragnarok broke apart and fell through the
atmosphere, burning brightly like a shooting star in the night sky. That image
will be burned into my mind forever.

Vent: Then that means Model W is...

Prairie: Yes, the sould of that man contained in a fragment of Ragnarok. That's
Model W. Sis recognized its existence and set about to create something capable
of fighting the threat. She used her research to create Biometal with the powers
of legendary heroes from an age long ago.

Vent: So she succeeded. What happened next?

Prairie: I don't know. That's where the data ends.

Vent: Oh... Model X, do you know what became of Prairie's sister?

Model X: I'm sorry. I don't remember anything. All our memories of the moments
after our creation were erased. Vent. We have assembled all of the passwords.
With them, you can enter the ruins where the Model W Core lies.

Vent: They've been digging and are probably close to the core by now. We have to
hurry!

Prairie: You're right! I'll enter the mission data into the transerver right
away! Vent, this is going to be dangerous. Be careful!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 16 - Stop the Dig
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Vent accepts the mission "Stop the Dig" and heads to Area M. He finds a door,
but it is locked.)

Vent: Model W is close...

Model Z: We'll open the door when you're ready.

Vent: I'm as ready as I'll ever be.

Model X: Everyone... Input your passwords.

(The Biometal float around Vent.)

Model H: I am the wind that blows through the sky, Ventus Airus.

(A green light lands on a lock.)

Model L: I am the water that flows across the land, Glacius Passio.

(A blue light lands on a lock.)

Model F: I am the fire that brings heat to all life, Flamma Wies.

(A red light lands on a lock.)

Model P: I am the shadow that never leaves the side of justice, Umbra Profess.

(A purple light lands on a lock.)

Model X: I am the light that illuminates all possibilities, Lumine Infinitus...

(A light blue light lands on a lock.)

Model Z: I am the courage that fights for beliefs, Fortitude Creed...

(A light red light lands on a lock. The lights merge onto the topmost lock. The
Biometal head back to Vent.)

Model X: Let's go!

Model Z: The rest is up to you.

(Vent travels through the area until Serpent teleports down in front of him.)

Serpent: Well well, it looks like you found me. I never imagined that little boy
I met would survive this long.

Vent: Serpent!

Serpent: It's a shame you're too late. Witness the power to control the world!
The true form of Model W!

(Vent notices a giant machine in the background.)

Vent: !!!

Serpent: Do you feel it!? Its glorious presence is starting to rise! Even the
precious Biometal in your possession is insignificant compared to the might of
Model W! Finally, the power is mine! All of it! Pandora!

(Pandora teleports in.)

Serpent: We have an honored guest favoring us with his presence. Take good care
of him.

Pandora: I will...

Serpent: Project Haven is now in its final stage! Gaze upon the beginning of a
brand new age!

(He teleports away.)

Pandora: Model ZX... Mega Man... You will not... interfere...

(They fight. Vent defeats Pandora. The ground begins to shake, and the machine
rises away.)

Vent: No! Model W!

Pandora: The wheel of fate... in motion... No on can stop... our destiny of
destruction... Not you... Not Serpent... No one...

Vent: What!?

(Pandora teleports away. The ground stops shaking.)

Vent: Destiny of destruction!? What are they trying to do!?

Prairie: Vent! The Slither Inc. fleet is on the move!

Vent: I couldn't stop the reawakening of Model W in time! Can you catch them?

Prairie: We'll do what we can! Hold on! Wh-what's this!? There is a massive
outbreak of Mavericks detected in the western region of Area D! The readings are
off the chart and interfering with our ability to track Model W!

Vent: Seeerpeeent!!!

Prairie: I've added the mission data for the Mavericks! Get prepared and start
the mission ASAP! I'll do what I can to get a fix on Model W's signature!

Vent: Do your best!

(Vent reports the mission.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 17 - Repel the Army
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Vent accepts the mission "Repel the Army" and heads over to Area O.)

Prairie: Vent! You made it to Area O. The Maverick army is drawing closer to the
residential district with every passing second. We need to stop them and avoid
as many Guardian casualties as possible. Find the Maverick leading them and take
it out!

(Vent continues until he finds Prometheus and Pandora.)

Vent: I should've known you two would be behind this, Pandora and Prometheus!

Prometheus: Well, we've finally drawn the curtain and have arrived at our final
act! You and Serpent, the two holders of the power fighting each other to the
end! Yes... It was just as Model W had foreseen.

Vent: Model W!? What about Serpent!?

Pandora: Biometal is... a conscious entity. It can... control the weak.

Prometheus: Did you really think Serpent had the willpower to control Model W!?
He is just a simple pawn!

Vent: You've been using Serpent from the start!

Pandora: It's too late... Model W... about to awaken.

Prometheus: We'll keep you occupied while you wait Mega Man... Model ZX!

(The three fight. Vent defeats Prometheus and Pandora.)

Vent: Just who are you if you're not in league with Serpent?

Pandora: We are... the voice of Model W.

Prometheus: Hah-hahaha! If you want to know more, you'll have to face Model W!
You. Serpent. The citizens of this country. All of you were just players on a
stage acting out your parts just as Model W had written them.

(They teleport away.)

Prairie: The Maverick activity is finally subsiding. You must have taken out
their leader!

Vent: It's not over yet. Have you pinpointed Model W's current location?

Prairie: I'm sorry. We're going to need a little more time with that. Vent, come
back to Guardian HQ while we try to find it.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 18 - Model W's Location
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Vent and Prairie are in the Guardian HQ command center.)

Prairie: Vent. We've tracked down Model W's location. It's in the tallest
building right in the center of the country - Slither Inc's head office. I'm
detecting a huge concentration of energy amassing within the building. Something
big is about to happen. It's going to be dangerous.

Vent: I know it'll be dangerous, but this is something I have to do.

Prairie: Vent. I know it's a little late, but... I'm so sorry I keep putting
your life in jeopardy. If I never would have made that transporter request, you
wouldn't have gotten wrapped up in all this. And Giro... I feel like I've caused
you so much pain and suffering.

Vent: Please don't feel that way. I'm grateful to you.

Prairie: Really? Why?

Vent: It's my fault that I couldn't save Boss. I wasn't strong enough. But now I
have the power of the Biometal. Thanks to you and the Biometal, I finally have
the strength to protect the ones I care about.

Prairie: Vent...

Vent: I'll be back soon. I'm off to end this nightmare!

Prairie: The final mission data has been added to the transerver. Vent. Make
sure you come back to us okay?


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 19 - Destroy Model W
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Vent accepts the mission "Destroy Model W and transports to Slither Inc.
Eventually, he encounters Hivolt again.)

Hivolt: The curtain is rising on a new age! Unfortunately, you won't be around
to see it. The light of the new world burns too brightly for people like you!

(They fight. Vent defeats Hivolt.)

Hivolt: *cough cough* I have no fear of the end! My spirit will fuse with Model
W and Lord Serpent!

(He explodes. Vent then encounters Hurricaune.)

Hurricaune: Hmph. You're a real pest! Still trying to fight the inevitable. Lord
Serpent will be victorious! I'll carve you up and then you'll realize how futile
your battle was!

(They fight. Vent defeats Hurricaune.)

Hurricaune: Agh! I will continue to live on as one with Model W... I don't care
how long it takes, I will defeat you!

(She explodes. Vent then encounters Lurerre.)

Lurerre: Unbelievable! You've been bothering poor Lord Serpent this whole time!
You little brat! I'm going to grind you up!

(They fight. Vent defeats Lurerre.)

Lurerre: Oh! Lord Serpent... Take my spirit... it's yours to have! As for you, I
hope you get squished like the bug you are!

(She explodes. Vent then encounters Leganchor.)

Leganchor: Youth truly is wasted on the young. You still continue to defy Lord
Serpent!? You're blind to reality! The world that Lord Serpent is building is
the next step in humanity's evolution!

(They fight. Vent defeats Leganchor.)

Leganchor: If only you could become one with Model W, you too would understand
the truth. We must evolve... with a new world.

(He explodes. Vent then encounters Fistleo.)

Fistleo: Another chance to fight the kid. My spirit is on fire! Alright boy!
Show me your strength!

(They fight. Vent defeats Fistleo.)

Fistleo: Even if it is only in spirit, I will continue to fight! I will become
one with Model W! This... this is what Serpent must have been saying about the
power of a god! It is incredible... Simply incredible!

(He explodes. Vent encounters Flammole.)

Flammole: Haha! You should thank me. I went through all the trouble of diggin'
your grave! Now I just have to bury ya!

(They fight. Vent defeats Flammole.)

Flammole: I can sense the shockwaves of Model W ripplin' underground... Feel
free to take your dirt nap when Model W is done with you!

(He explodes. Vent encounters Purprill.)

Purprill: Ook! Ook! It's a miracle! I'm back and feeling great! I'm sorry, this
won't be a fair fight! I'll probably take you down with one hit!

(They fight. Vent defeats Purprill.)

Purprill: Ook... Ook! Done in again! Oh well, at least I was back for a little
while. Lord Serpent! Take my spirit, I freely give it to Model W!

(He explodes. Vent encounters Protectos.)

Protectos: I never expected you to make it all the way to our head office... But
this is where your journey ends. Your smug sense of righteousness will be your
undoing!

(They fight. Vent defeats Protectos.)

Protectos: Lord Serpent... He will leave a big footprint in history! The
footprint left behind where he crushes you!

(He explodes. Vent continues until he finds a room full of Cyber-elves.)

Vent: Cyber-elves! Why are there so many of them!?

(Vent heads through until he finds Serpent in a room with the Model W Core.)

Serpent: You must be wondering why we need so many Cyber-elves to awaken Model
W... Hmph! I child like you could never understand that! Their fright... It
becomes the power that drives Model W!

Vent: What!?

(The room starts shaking slightly. Serpent pulls out Model W.)

Serpent: Model W, it's time! The despair and fear of this country are yours!

(The Cyber-elves start being absorbed into the Model W Core.)

Serpent: By joining us, the weak are freed from their suffering! The chosen one,
Mega Man, will save the people! That is the glory of Project Haven!

Vent: Mega Man will save the people!? Where did you get all of these
Cyber-elves!?

Serpent: Ten years ago, people fell victim to a Maverick raid. My company's
security force dealth with the Maverick threat and were welcomed back as heroes.
Since then, this country has been plagued by raid after raid and my company has
always come to the rescue. I was able to earn the trust of the people, while at
the same time harvest the spirits I needed! This country's history is merely one
facet of a greater plan - Project Haven.

Vent: So you just used the victims of the raids ten years ago, people like my
mom to create the Cyber-elves!? All of it! My mom! Boss! Prairie's sister!
You're behind all of their losses!

Serpent: Survival of the fittest! The strong survive while the weak fade away!
It's the classic struggle for life! The spirits of the people have given me what
I need to obtain the power of Model W! Look at you! You're only able to stand
before me today thanks to the power of Model Z absorbed from that red Mega Man!
Everything has been leading up to this moment. You and me!

(The Model W Core stops absorbing Cyber-elves. Serpent megamerges with Model W.)

Serpent: Your fear and despair combined with my joy in victory... They shall be
the ultimate gift to Model W!               

(They fight. Vent defeats Serpent.)

Serpent: Gyahahaha!

Vent: What's so funny Serpent!?

Serpent: It's just as Prometheus and Pandora said. You are the final key. Right
now... you are being controlled by a powerful emotion...

(Serpent raises his arms.)

Serpent: Emotion so powerful it exceeds even mine!

(The Model W Core sends out a purple shockwave. Vent demerges.)

Vent: My transformation was cancelled! What's... going on!?

(The room starts shaking.)

Serpent: The emotion driving you now... That emotion is not bravery... It's not
born out of some sense of righteousness... It's hate. Your hate for me and
everything I've taken from you!

Vent: What!?

(Anime cutscene. Model W's Core grows red, and begins to merge with Serpent.)

Serpent: Hahaha... Gyahahahahaha! The new age is beginning right now before your
very eyes. The age of the Mega Man... The destined ruler!

(End anime cutscene. Serpent and Model W's Core are merged.)

Vent: That means... I was the key for awakening Model W? All of the pain... All
of the fighting... Was a mistake?

Model X: Don't give up yet.

Model Z: Your battle is not over.

Vent: Eh!?

(The Models H, F, L, and P hover around him.)

Model H: We did not lend you our power just to let you carry out some kind of
petty revenge...

Model F: Beating up someone just because you don't like them is nothing more
than the action of a playground bully.

Model L: Don't give in to the hate. If you fight the flow, you just end up
swimming in place.

Model P: Even in the darkest tunnel, there is always a light at the end of it
for you to follow.

(Models X and Z also start to hover around him.)

Model X: Your power is not based on hate. Your real power. Your wellspring of
bravery lies within you!

Model Z: Look within yourself!

(They merge with him to form Model ZX.)

Vent: You're right. I made a promise to you on that day! I said I will protect
the people! All of them!

Serpent: Well then. If you're so sure of yourself, let's find out which Mega Man
is destined to rule the world!

Vent: I don't care about ruling the world! Serpent, if you want to be the Mega
Man destined to rule the world, then I am the Mega Man that is destined to save
it!

(They fight. Vent defeats Model W.)

Chapter 20 - Your Own Destiny
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(The room starts to fall apart.)

Vent: You're no Mega Man, and you're no ruler. You're just a tool. Model W
manipulated you. You've played with lives and you're nothing more than a
Maverick!

Serpent: A Maverick!? Me!? How dare you call me a Maverick! You're the one
stopping progress. You're the one denying change. Maybe you're the Maverick!
People and society are destined for change! They must shed their hate-filled
hearts and suffering bodies. We must move forward! We must have change!

Vent: I will not let anyone get stepped on in your road to "progress!"

Serpent: On a planet... Life is born... Humans and machines... Waves of war and
peace roll on. And in every age, a fool like you tries to fight it. You don't
want to see anyone get hurt. You want to protect the ones you care about. You
don't want to lose anything. By acting on that desire, you continue to make
choices that avoid the pain. The Mega Man destined to save the world? Unchanging
life... A world devoid of the light of hope. What's the point!?

Vent: But...!

(The Biometal demerge and hover around him again.)

Model X: Vent! Everything's falling apart! You've got to get out of here!

(Anime cutscene. The building falls apart.)

Serpent: The destiny of destruction... Still awaits... So long as you have
hearts, hate will lurk in the shadows... You who possess the wellspring of
emotion known as the heart... You are the true Mavericks!

(He and the building explode. Anime cutscene ends. Vent wakes up hovering in a
white space with the Biometal still floating around him.)

Vent: "We must move forward. We must have change." I couldn't think of anything
to say to that.

(A small red Cyber-elf, Giro, appears.)

Giro: Well then, why did you decide to fight?

(The Cyber-elf projects a hologram of Giro.)

Giro: Why? Because you wanted to change the world. You decided that you did not
want to be a slave to destiny. You are the one that fought to change that
destiny.

Vent: Boss!?

Giro: You were a real pain.

Vent: ...!?

Giro: You never treated the clients with respect. You ignored me. You were
always reckless and ran off on your own. Yeah, you were definitely a real pain.
You drove me crazy, but I always cared about you. Even the times you drove me
crazy... Every moment is a precious memory to me.

Vent: Boss...

Giro: Strip away the hate and the sorrow from our hearts and what's left?
Serpent threw away everything until nothing was left and tried to change the
world. Vent. What will you do?

Vent: I'll never get over the grief I feel for your loss or the loss of my mom.
But, those memories are proof I am alive. Difficult memories... Sad memories.
But I don't want to lose them! I will protect all of them!

Giro: Then it's your turn Vent. Guide the world. Bring the world the future you
think it deserves. That's my last job request for you, transporter.

(Giro disappears. The Biometal place Vent on the highway in Area D.)

Model X: Everyone hides some painful weakness in their heart. But that pain is
what allows people to reach out to others.

Model Z: Face your destiny and carve out a new future for yourself. That's the
struggle that you and every living thing on the planet must cope with.

(The Biometal join him again.)

Prairie: Vent!

(Vent turns around to see Prairie and all the Guardians waiting. Prairie and
Vent run towards each other.)

Vent: Facing our destinies and carving out the future... That's our struggle.
I have something I must protect. And now I have the power to protect it. I will
fight! I will fight for what I believe in!

(The credits roll as Vent runs on the highway.)
