Part 144: Mission 40 - The Truth About Heroes - Part 1
Mission 40 - The Truth About Heroes
David isn't paying much attention to do his job, which is coordinating with Anita to gather supplies to deliver Hikaru.
Instead, he's pondering how D-Boy, Aki's lover, faced the Radam all alone.
He thinks that D-Boy mustn't be defeated, lest he be defeated too...
He then bumps into Dead, who professes to be glad to see him again.
He reminds David of his promise to buy him a drink the next time they meet, and introduces himself fully as "Dead End", a pseudonym to make up for the real name he's forgotten long ago.
Judging by the look on David's face, Dead thinks that he is in need of a drink with a friend. Is he having girl troubles? Guy troubles? Both, David admits.
He tells him that there's this girl, who has a guy, who's really frigging strong and noble and whatnot; on account of the guys return, David told himself he'd given up on the girl.
But the guy got beaten down in front of his face: pathetically, disgracefully.
Does that mean he should un-give up on the girl? Quite the conundrum.
David decides to stop his bellyaching and turns the conversation to Dead, asking what brings him to G-Island.
He says he lived in Tokyo until around a year ago... at which point one of the Radam flowers bloomed right in front of him.
As shock grips David's face, Dead explains that the flower devoured his fate and like David himself, once the flower had withered, he was no longer human.
Dead figured himself cursed by the White Devil, doomed by his incompetence; he no longer cares that it was actually the Radam's fault - all he wants is the power to defeat those who stole his old life away.
David knows now who he's talking to, but Dead bids him farewell, adding sadly that it was the look in David's eyes that made him tell everything.
Dead promises that the next time they meet, it will be as enemies: and Dead will start by taking the human Tekkamen out before the Radam ones.
: Thats its Galeon! But wasnt it travelling the galaxy?!
*Gai shows up.*
: Gai?! Didnt he go back to the Orbit Base?!
: Mamoru! Do you have any idea what youve done!?
: Why?! Why did you attack the Orbit base and steal the Q-Part?
: Was the attack on the Chinese Science Institute also your doing?!
: ...Something terrible is happening in space right now.
: For that reason I need the Pas-Q Machine!
: Pas-Q Machine?
: Thats the true form of the Q-Parts that you gathered.
: Very soon, the Pas-Q Machine will be restored.
: I know there were some sacrifices but, with this, we can save our universe!
: Some sacrifices ?! Dont you understand, Mamoru?!
: Your attack left Papillon seriously injured!
: That was insignificant compared to whats coming next.
: Wait, Mamoru! Were not done talking!!
: Dont get in my way, Gai! Theres no time!
: People are hurt! Explain yourself, Mamoru!
: If thats how you feel then Ill leave by force!
: Stop, Mamoru! What are you doing?!
: If youre going to be a problem, then theres no other way! FUSION! GAIGAR!!
: Come, Gao Machines!
: These are the same Gao Machines you used during the fight against the Primevals !
: No way !
: FINAL FUSION!!
: GAO! GAI! GAAAAAAR!
: Mamoru and Gaogaigar
: Gai Ive become one with Gaogaigar So, this is the power of the strongest King of Braves?
: It isnt! Youre completely mistaken thats not what power is!
: I am not mistaken ! The one thats wrong is you, Gai!
: In that case, Mamoru ! I will defeat you! And then youll tell me everything!
: Two King of Braves which one will win ? No, which side is right ?!
We have a slight advantage in that Gai has enough morale to open up with Gatling Driver but Mamoru is still rather resilient.
: Mamoru! Why are you doing this?! If theres a crisis happening, why didnt you come talk to us?!
: Im running out of time! If you get in my way, Ill show you no mercy!
Not bad at all.
: Why, Gai?! Why cant you understand?!
: Thats my line, Mamoru! Why are we fighting?! Whats going on in the galaxy?!
: Im fighting to protect the galaxy! I am the one thats right and youre the one thats wrong!
: Thats right! Gai, youre making a mistake!
: King J-Der! Then, the one piloting it is
: Its been a while, Gai.
: Soldato J! Youre alive!
: Theres no need to talk about our reunion. Ive come to meet Latio.
: Were fighting to protect the galaxy. Gai, you shouldnt get in our way.
: Then, the battleship that attacked the Chinese Science Institute ! J, were you the one that stole that Q-Part?!
: I stole nothing. I simply returned it to its rightful owner.
: Gai, if you become a nuisance, we will have to eliminate you !
: Thank you, J! If we combine our powers, we can surely defeat Gai!
: Admit it, Gai. Admit that youre making a mistake.
: Gai! Admit that we are right and you are wrong!
: I AM A HERO!!
: Mamoru...and J! Even if its you, I wont be forced to accept your will!
: Ill fight for what I believe in!
: Very well, Gai! As I once promised, well settle everything right here!
: Gai Why wont you admit that youre wrong
: Then, Ill prove to you that Im right! I will defeat you!!
Another battle but, this time, Gais massive morale boost creates an impenetrable Protect Wall.
Js size couldve given him the damage boost to be dangerous but
: Youre despicable, Gai! Dont you understand that this is for the greater good?!
: Shut up, J! No matter whats going on, you cant simply disregard other peoples lives!
: Soldato J! As a hero, I will defeat you!
: Youre welcome to try! Show me what you can do without Galeon!
Since sizes are still broken, hes stopped by PROTECTO WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARU!
: Give up, Gai! You cant win against the both of us!
: Hes right, Gai! Your courage, your righteousness and your convictions are all wrong!
: Im not done yet! I will still fight my soul isnt dead!
: Farewell, then, Gai! Disappear!
: Shut up! You are just a lion who forgot his pride!
: Golion, Kogane and the others!
: Are you alright, Gai?!
: The lions still alive ! You continue to follow despite what happened?!
: Kogane! Did you fight against J in space?
: We returned to the Altean System after we split off from Mamoru and Galeon
: However, a month ago the Leo Union was attacked by Mamoru and others!
: They threw the Leo Union into chaos!
: Thats because your existence is unnecessary to the galaxy.
: What?! Didnt you fight together with us against the Primevals?!
: Gai! They are the evil behind the destruction of the galaxy!
: Let's work together! Together with J and I, well destroy Golion!
: Shut up! Youre the one suddenly attacking us without any reason!
: I know what to do, Mamoru! I will defeat you!!
: Give me a hand, Kogane! Well defeat them for the sake of our convictions!!
: Yes! Thats the reason why we came back to Earth!
: Golion ! Another legacy of the Ancient Leo Culture I will erase you right here!!
Time to put Mamoru to sleep. Seidou has learned Valor and, even with low morale, theyll put a mighty dent on Gaogaigar.
: Mamoru, what happened after we got separated?! Why did you attack Altea?!
: Golion, I will defeat you! As the heir to the legacy of the Green Planet, I am the TRUE lion!
Gai quickly finishes the job with a Gatling Driver.
Mamoru is worth two levels, an All-Range Radar and a SP Usage -5%.
Gai also learns Bravery!
: Its not over yet!
: Please stop, Mamoru! Tell us whats going on!
: Shut up! Ill show you the power of the true King of Braves!
: Kogane stand back. Ill end this with my own hands !
: Fight me, Gai! I will definitely surpass you now!
: A aah
: Have you forgotten, Mamoru? Victory goes
: TO THOSE WITH COURAAAAAAAAAAGE!!
: Gai! Do you have any idea of what youve done?!
: Youve killed Latio!
: Shut up! All of this happened because you attacked us!
: Kogane what J said is right. I did kill Mamoru
: But I will not stop! Because I fight for what I believe in
: BECAUSE I AM A HERO!!
J decides to go after Golion
: Please stop this, J! Are you not the hero who fought to the point of sacrificing himself?
: Im fighting to save the universe! Dont get in my way!
: Then explain why you attacked Altea! We dont want to fight you!
: If thats the case, Golion, sit still and let me destroy you! This is for the sake of the Trinary Solar System!
This goes back and forth for a couple of turns so lets just skip ahead.
Unlike Mamoru, J has Prevail so feel free to cast Valor with Gai.
J is worth a High-Performance Targeting System and an Initial Morale +2.
: UUAAAAAAAAAARGH! IMPOSSIBLEEEEEEEEE!!
: J this the end for you
Gai then goes to where a wounded Mamoru is whimpering on the ground.
Despite his pain, Mamoru says that Gai is dooming the galaxy by getting in his way; Kogane asks what hes talking about and if its why he attacked Altea.
The conversation, however, is interrupted as J, still alive, swoops over yelling that they dont need to know!
Mamoru takes Gais distraction as a chance to strike at his back.
However, Kaidou appears out of nowhere blowing Mamoru clean away.
J tries guilt-tripping Kaidou on killing Mamoru but he tells his Replijin of J to shut up he wont tolerate his existence any longer; as both J and Mamoru die, their bodies start dissolving into dust which greatly confuses everyone else.
Kaidou explains that those aren't the real J and Mamoru: they are clones created by the 11 Sol Lords to act as servants.
Speak of the devil, our people are bombarded from a suddenly-appearing battleship and, amidst the confusion, Palparepa snags the Pas-Q Machine.
He tells everyone that they, the 11 Sol Lords, must carry out their mission and anyone who gets in their way will be eliminated.
Gai tries going after him but Palparepa says we have another enemy to worry about.
That would be the Galra, led by Sinclyne, whose presence here and, the fact that theyre working with the Sol Lords, comes as a surprise to the Golion team.
Indeed, Sinclyne confirms that theyre working together, though the main reason why Sinclyne is here today is his desire to defeat Golion his past defeat is a wound on his pride that can only be healed by killing them all.
A voice inside the Sol Lord battleship leaves everything on Sinclynes hands and leaves with the Pas-Q Machine.
As Kaidou retreats to safety, Kogane tells Gai to be careful as fighting against the new models of Mega Black Beastmen in his state could prove tough but Gai says hes still good to charge into the fray.
Gai has, once again, fully recovered so he can wreck shit on the Galra with little issue.
However, its much simpler to stay up here and have them come after us.
Which half of them do; Sinclyne, 2 Battleships, 4 Death Hells and 2 Mega Black Beastmen stay behind, though.
And, just in time, help arrives to intercept them!
However, I think this is a good spot to stop. Come next update, well take a look at these new Galra elite mooks and see what else the game can throw at us to make this mission even longer.
See you all then!
