Part 27: We Dig Giant Robots!
So Commander Yamazakis helping Cindelman, and Kumotatsu from Odeo Temple was there too
Theres gotta be a way to stop em.
Huh? Whos Buriki Daioh?
The ancient mech, Buriki Daioh A saint from Babylonia of old is said to have controlled it via psychokinesis.
A giant robot? For real? Awesome!
Control Buriki Daioh with your psychic powers! Smash up the bad guys!
Man, Coops psychic powers are the worst kept secret.
You may not remember this, but there was a little exchange back in Mechas first update:
Hows your sis doing?
Kaoris gotten a little better, thanks.
Thats just about all we get to learn that Kaori is rather sickly before this scene.
Unfortunately Coop wasnt able to do it.
Is there another way?
No Well, if we inject a liquefied human, it might be possible to activate it like we did Taro
That wont work, Im afraid Buriki Daioh is powered by the human spirit.
Theres a long pause
(Music stops abruptly.)
W-what? Dont be stupid!
N-no! Theres n-no reason for you to get involved in this!
My heart cant take this
(Music slowly fades.)
Heh Us bikers dont know the meanin of the word impossible! I mean, Im Matsu !
And as Matsu and Toei race out of the room, the normal music fades back in.
Do you know Coop at all, Taeko?
Whats Matsu gonna do? / (If something happens to these kids )
I wanna ride on Buriki Daioh! / (But Matsu doesnt have any psychic powers )
I wonder whatll happen. / (Oooh, my nerves )
I bet Misawa could do it!! / (Save us, Misawa )
We may need more than a wrestler to save us, Yuki
Matsu You remind me of Dad / (Matsu )
W-what did she say?
Coop may need to have a talk with Watanabe later
For now though, we need to focus on the matter at hand.
How do I get it to move
(Too bad. Knowing him, hes probably in some dive, getting plastered )
Ah Guess its time to visit the place we saw earlier.
Yep, there he is
What, you come here to laugh at me? Bah, I couldnt do anything after all / (Damn it )
Hmmm Well, theres nothing we can do for Matsu now. Lets just leave
(You may wish to make some changes to your equipment right about now. Namely, give Taros robot accessories to Coop, for Reasons.)
Those assholes! Theyd burn down Chibikko House just to get at Coop and Matsu!
Taeko ! Kaori!
Ill save them!
I told you! Its hopeless!
I dont wanna die!
Ill go! You all get out of here!
Okay, big damn hero time.
Ill save Kaori! Get out of here!
Finding Taeko is easy enough.
...Good thing Kaori wasnt still in bed.
You may have noticed that one of the doors was blocked by flames; we have to look in every other part of Chibikko House before we can get in there.
Hope nobody needed the can.
This is where the usual video starts. (Warning: Its 26 minutes long.) Still, I very much recommend watching this one, since Im not going to be commenting much for the remainder of the update. Things will speak for themselves.
Are you okay!?
Of course, thats when the rumbling starts
What? But last time
Salright, Im good. Itll work this time! Lets go!
W-with the power of the ancients!
It Its moving!
The eyes light up, and the chains retract Buriki Daioh is fully operational!
What is it?
I-Im sorry. Ive been perfectly horrible to you
...Oh hi there.
That voice Matsu!
He binged on Matango to heighten his senses and his spirit
You moron! Youre gonna get yourself killed!
So lng asv got Briki Dioh Massu aynt ded!
Huhf huhf huhf
Hey there, Taeko. We briefly get control here, but we just need to read Matsus mind to check on him.
(We were enemies )
(We both had our hands full with keeping our subordinates from taking to their heels )
I dont want any more deaths!
Dont be dense! Theyre just stringing you along!
Do you think the army will fold just because of your insignificant resistance?! Grow up, Matsu!
So youre just Yamazakis dog after all!
Sorry, but you have to die!
A shot rings out
(I pulled the trigger Just an instant before him )
Coop Lets go to the temple Lets bust em up !
No! Dont go!! Go tomorrow! You need rest!
Women always get in the way
And then Matsu collapses.
(Music fades as everyone leaves.)
Matsu Hes not dead yet Right?
You Youre moving it!?
(To the Odeo Temple !)
By the graces of the army !
So now we have control of Buriki Daioh, and were going to have to smash our way through Yamazakis troops to reach the temple.
Fighter planes and tanks are going to give us a warm welcome.
But the power of Buriki Daioh is irrepressible.
Even an 88mm shell does nothing more than scratch damage, not even taking off 1% of Buriki Daiohs monstrous health pool. Not bad for being tin-plated, huh?
When we reach the front of the temple, we have one more encounter The flying fortress, Donryu! Equipped with missiles, vulcan cannons, flamethrowers and its very own Maser Cannon.
At 900 HP, the Donryu doesnt last long against Buriki Daiohs assault.
Tis brilliance ! Humans melted together with other humans into one being, sharing both mind and body! And hatred A superb world without fighting
Ah well You wouldnt understand.
So each person averages 30 liters? Well, thats one way to lose weight.
Youve come Now! The Great Inko Buddha statue shall bring unto us salvation!
All of the birds flying around the temple grounds approach the Inko Buddha statue and are absorbed into it.
We can do this
Fighting in the lake of liquified humans, the mech from ancient Babylonia must slay the demon pheasant The Great Inko Statue is either one of the easiest or one of the hardest final bosses, solely dependent on which of their moves they favor.
Keruru Story in particular is one we want him to avoid using too often. It locks out foot techs, and Buriki Daiohs Babylon Kick is by far his strongest move in this fight. The statue can also throw out Liquified Man Curse to lock hand techs, and use Keruru Kick to turn our mech and cancel Halogen Laser.
Even though it has 2050 HP, the Inko statue cannot withstand a few good godlike kicks.
The The liquified humans !
Now youll become one with them
Serves the bastards right.
Theyre Theyre gonna swallow Buriki Daioh too!? C
Not if Coop has anything to say about it !
Huh ? Er Okay!
And so Coop ends up taking over the Taiyaki stand.
Taeko keeps a close eye on Kazu to stop him wandering off.
Although the kids are still a handful, with Watanabe getting pushed around by Yuki once more.
Taro keeps a close eye on Kaori, perhaps wanting to return the favour she did for him.
Despite Coops best efforts, Buriki Daioh refuses to move again.
The couples moment seems to have passed.
And Coop Well, he has a lot to think about.
As a little something extra, please enjoy the Motto! Motto! Mix of Go! Go! Buriki Daioh!
I'm a little sad the MOTTO MOTTO version got linked without sticking in the promotional vid for the 2012 "newly recorded vocals" version Squenix single where the attacks get called out by the singer.
And so, after helping Ayla take on the Kuu tribe and rescue Bel from the jaws of O-D-O
leading Cube to triumph over the murderous OD-10 and saving some of the crew of the Cogito Ergosum
travelling with the Master and Li Kuugo to avenge Yuan and Sammo, and show Odi Wang Lee the superiority of WuTang Kung Fu
witnessing a new dawn in the land of the rising sun, as Sonic-maru and Ryoma overcome Ode Ious demonic form
watching Andre take on the world and win, defeating Odie Oldbright for the ultimate title
moseying along with the Waco Kid and Mad Dog as they show O. Dios Crazy Bunch whos boss
and of course, seeing Coop pilot Buriki Daioh to take down Master Odeo and the Great Inko statue After all of that
There is one more story which must be told, before everything can be brought together. This is the tale of a valiant knight
Our eighth protagonist goes by Oersted. If you wish to change that, nows the time to vote.
